Tashanna Cortez (middle) and Lisa Kelii-Rios share a light hearted moment with John Stallman (left) at Pu'uhonua o Puna during a visit on Sunday. Stallman, who has been affectionately dubbed “Ranger John,” has been updating the local community and others about the latest lava activity through social media. A former park ranger and local volcano tour guide, Stallman considers himself an avid naturalist. “I’m more of a teacher than a scientist,” said Stallman modestly.
