Hawaii Lt. Gov. Josh Green visited Mauna Kea Monday morning to offer his ear, advice and services as a doctor to people on the mountain blocking construction of the Thirty Meter Telescope. Green, who is from Hawaii island, also said Gov. David Ige should meet with the kupuna, or Hawaiian elders, serving as decision-makers in the group, and he apologized for some of the things said earlier that have offended demonstrators. "I am here to listen," he told a group kupuna under a canopy during a misty morning. "And I want to say I'm sorry for some of the things that have been said in the past days and weeks."
