According to the Board of Water Supply, Oahu is now seeing about 300 water main breaks a year. And unless ongoing pipeline replacement efforts are ramped up, the annual count of splits, tears and bursts is poised for an unabated climb in coming decades.
As thousands of residents begin to recover from the recent historic rainfall in Kauai — which has caused flash flooding and mudslides throughout the island — now is a critical time for all in Hawaii to think critically about their plans to receive live, local and detailed information during times of emergency.

There are no winners in trade wars, and the one looming between the United States and China could affect Hawaii residents’ wallets and household budgets through rising prices on everyday goods.
At Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii, we do more than just host huge beach cleanups across the state, more than just educate over 10,000 kids annually in their schools, and more than just divert thousands of pounds away from our landfill and incinerator through composting and recycling.
Plastic pollution is a global issue and the only way for us to overcome its effects is to work together to switch from a culture of convenience to one where we think about the long-term and global impacts of our actions.
We can all choose to be a coalition of action rather than a conspiracy of inaction. We must do this because we are all interconnected in Hawaii and rise or fall together. Let us do this because it will create a legacy of true equality and aloha for coming generations.

The state of the Hawaiian language renaissance, said Na‘alehu Anthony, can be gauged by a visit to the drug store, or some similar community stomping grounds. He’s done that, and the conclusion he’s drawn: Hawaiian is gaining in strength.
For the third time in four years, the Supreme Court heard arguments Monday about a case that would deal a financial blow to public sector unions, a major political force in California and Democratic politics, nationally.

The final audit of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA) produced by the Office of the State Auditor makes one thing clear: It is time for the incumbent OHA trustees and Chief Executive Officer Kamana‘opono Crabbe to step aside or be voted out.
In January 2017, as then-chairwoman of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs’ board of trustees, I and four other trustees offered OHA CEO Kamana‘opono Crabbe a buyout of his contract so that we could have a fresh start with a new CEO and correct many of the issues that have now been revealed by the state auditor.
