Rescue crews aid hikers in Palolo, on North Shore

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 07:24 a.m. HST, Oct 27, 2013

Fire rescue workers responded Saturday to rescue an injured woman hiker in Palolo Valley and a couple of lost hikers in the Sunset Hills area.

Fire spokesman Capt. Terry Seelig said the Palolo hiker had an ankle injury that wasn't life-threatening but she was unable to walk without assistance from a friend.

He said fire rescue workers escorted her out of the hiking area.

Seelig said fire rescue workers also rescued hikers in the Sunset Hills area of the North Shore, who called for help on their cell phones.

Just curious - was the Palolo hiker in an area that required a permit for access? If so, did she have a permit?

Here's a post the censor would not let me post under the DHHL story of today: A recent Commissioner, Ray Soon, works for the C&C of Honolulu as Mayor Caldwell's Chief of Staff. When commissioner, Soon wrote an opinion that (1) there are no Indians in Hawaii and (2) there is no Indian land in Hawaii. After serving as Commissioner, Mr Soon went to work for Kamehameha Schools as a communications consultant. Another term for spin doctor. Another recent Commissioner, Micah Kane, is now a trustee of Kamehameha schools. There are no “Indians” in the world this trust lives in, only “Hawaiians”. I wonder if local government has any issues with royal land trust water issues? Here is the actual governing law. Confusion is no excuse for obeying the actual statutory law, regardless of whose ox it gores. 25 CFR 1.4 - State and local regulation of the use of Indian property. § 1.4 State and local regulation of the use of Indian property. (a) Except as provided in paragraph (b) of this section, none of the laws, ordinances, codes, resolutions, rules or other regulations of any State or political subdivision thereof limiting, zoning or otherwise governing, regulating, or controlling the use or development of any real or personal property, including water rights, shall be applicable to any such property leased from or held or used under agreement with and belonging to any Indian or Indian tribe, band, or community that is held in trust by the United States or is subject to a restriction against alienation imposed by the United States. (b) The Secretary of the Interior or his authorized representative may in specific cases or in specific geographic areas adopt or make applicable to Indian lands all or any part of such laws, ordinances, codes, resolutions, rules or other regulations referred to in paragraph (a) of this section as he shall determine to be in the best interest of the Indian owner or owners in achieving the highest and best use of such property. In determining whether, or to what extent, such laws, ordinances, codes, resolutions, rules or other regulations shall be adopted or made applicable, the Secretary or his authorized representative may consult with the Indian owner or owners and may consider the use of, and restrictions or limitations on the use of, other property in the vicinity, and such other factors as he shall deem appropriate. [30 FR 7520, June 9, 1965]

There must be a place more to your liking else where. Hawaiians as native people are to be allowed the benefits of their ali`i. US learned from Indian treaties not to bestow such contracts upon Hawaii and stood with 13 colonists. Interesting parallel. Water rights have always been a source of power. Beach rights may soon follow. How does that sit with all of us? And with all the pilikia over hiking problems, mountain access will soon follow.

The "powers that be" --mostly big developers, yeah? -- better not try blocking us from the 'aina and the trailheads. I see enough of that happening just in town (Ka'au for instance). We're not about to stop hiking the trails where we roamed since, yep, Hanabata Days. .

When one of us got hurt we didn't call. We carried each other out of the mountain. Good memories. Too easy to call FD.
