    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.
