    WASHINGTON — It is difficult to overestimate the geopolitical risks of this moment — or the (both disturbed and eager) global scrutiny now being given to the American president.

    Last week I promised a “special one” for all you ladies, so here goes! Finally they are making a Barbie that women can relate to: Hot Flash Barbie! Just press Barbie’s bellybutton and watch her face turn beet red while tiny drops of perspiration appear on her forehead. It comes with a handheld fan and tinny tissues. And there’s Post-Menopausal Barbie. This Barbie has embarrassing moments when she sneezes, forgets where she puts things and cries a lot! She is sick and tired of Ken sitting on the couch watching football or basketball, so she is holding the clicker. This one comes with Depends and Kleenex, and as a bonus this year only, the book “Getting In Touch With Your Inner Self” is included. A deal!

    Recently an issue came before our County Council concerning polystyrene foam, commonly referred to as Styrofoam. A concern was raised with some, mistakenly believing I was not supporting the ban on polystyrene foam. I want to assure you that I am very much an environmentalist and deeply concerned about our island and county’s future. Hawaii has been my family’s home for many generations and I want its success for generations to come.

    This year, House Bill 790 House Draft 3 (HB 790 HD3) is moving forward to help create a complete picture of the impact certain pesticides and insecticides have on Hawaii’s fragile environment, and the health risks they pose to the residents of the State of Hawaii.

    Today I would like to shine a light on the dance between love and anger that can occur on a daily basis when caring for a family member.

    Aloha to the month of March 2017. Whew, where does the time go so quickly? So, before another minute gets away, it is time for some LOLs! I will start with a great one from a man friend. Of course, the title of all these is “Men Are Just Happier!”

    February has brought a bevy of news about the building blocks of planets from Maunakea.

    It’s the month of February and we are one month into the 2017 legislative session. The Hawaii State Capitol is buzzing with constituents and advocacy groups going to hearings to testify. We are discussing new ideas, fixing regulations that cause problems and trying to address the aging of our infrastructure.

    Aloha friends … I will speak to you from my alternative universe today. Surely this is not the same one as of a year ago! I gotta get this out of the way … the president who criticized Obama for playing golf on the job, played his first rounds on his first ($3million?) vacation, after two weeks on the job. OK, just one more … Is it really true that the president’s energy plan never mentioned solar? Time to LOL … LOL!

    It has been an amazing two months for me as I have been able to establish personal connections with many community members and community organizations, county, state and federal policymakers, as well as various County of Hawaii department directors. These connections, based upon the foundation and spirit of aloha, have provided me a tremendous opportunity to listen to the needs and concerns of our communities and its members, and to discuss critical pieces of legislation and/or focuses concerning North and South Kohala.

    Do you have an activity that brings you joy within a community of like-minded individuals and is part of your weekly routine? If so, you are on the right track to an enjoyable retirement. Many people put off their passions and think they’ll start up the habit when they don’t have so many responsibilities. I’d like to challenge you to consider taking them up sooner rather than later.

    My friends, you do not need the pathetic political jokes I have today. So, let’s just skip to the naughty: A nice, calm and respectable lady went into the pharmacy, walked up to the pharmacist, looked straight into his eyes and said, “I would like to buy some cyanide!” The pharmacist asked, “Why in the world do you need cyanide?” The lady replied, “I need it to poison my husband!” The pharmacist’s eyes got big and he exclaimed, “Lord have mercy! I can’t give you cyanide to kill your husband. Absolutely not! You cannot have any cyanide.” The lady reached in her purse and pulled out a picture of her husband kissing the pharmacist’s wife! The pharmacist looked at the picture and said, “You didn’t tell me you had a prescription!”
