    On Oct. 30, without much real public notice, our Leeward Planning Commission (Kona side), with the direction of the County Planning director and the acquiescence of the Windward Planning Commission (Hilo side), quietly eliminated or weakened public rights and participation in the Shoreline Management Area (SMA)/coastal management process and concentrated power in the politically appointed planning director as WHT covered Oct. 31.

    Movie producer Harvey Weinstein and comedian Louis C.K. are pariahs. Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore of Alabama is under fire, and so is Democratic Sen. Al Franken. What a righteous moment of accountability for creepy men in power.

    Let’s examine the impeachment procedure since it seems to be a daily topic. Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution provides that “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” You can’t impeach a president because you don’t like him, or because he wasn’t supposed to win, or he doesn’t seem presidential, or because you think he’s mentally unstable.
