    As a newcomer to the island, I took a trip up to the observatory a few days ago. I gently asked the few remaining protesters there what was going on. They were quite informative and told me that their purpose was to protect their sacred ground at the top of the mountain. I thought this was reasonable, because there are many peoples around the world who have sacred grounds, especially on mountains. However, as the conversation continued, I told one of the people there that it was my intention to try to find a home on the island, at which time he told me in no uncertain terms not to do this and to please go home to where I had come from.

    We are proud of Gov. David Ige’s strong stand in favor of a 100 percent clean, 100 percent local energy future for Hawaii. That’s the only way Hawaii can prevent catastrophic climate change, free ourselves from our $5 billion annual addiction to imported oil, and empower consumers to reduce their electric bills.

    I appreciate Tyler Saito’s letter to the editor of July 30, expressing concern about instituting even a partial pay-as-you-throw landfill rubbish program. He can rest assured that unless such a program will save taxpayers substantial money, I, too, will not support such a program. Previously, the data I was given demonstrated that unless we do a pay-as-you-throw landfill rubbish program, we would urgently be facing the need to build a new South Hilo Landfill — which would cost many millions of dollars. To avoid that situation, the Department of Environmental Management and I worked on various scenarios to avoid such a costly dilemma. However, based on a revised assessment by the Director of Environmental Management — there is no longer looming the need for a new landfill in the foreseeable future.

    This letter does not state support nor opposition to a drag strip being built in West Hawaii. Our group does, however, oppose Hawaii Racing Association’s proposed Mahaiula location as one that threatens decades of work and critical Hawaiian coastline.

    There is an app called Witness that allows a person to secretly record the police. When pushing a “panic button,” the phone will start recording video and audio, and stream that live to the Internet. It will also text three other phones, notifying them of your emergency situation, while allowing them to see and hear through your phone live. Your phone goes blank so it doesn’t look like its active at all. Imaging the local, and global, implications of filming the police in every capacity with the public.
