Hawaii Island’s homeless population is growing at an alarming rate. In fact, it is not so much the homeless population, it is the unsheltered population, and Hawaii County leads not only the state of Hawaii, it very likely has one of the highest unsheltered homeless rates of any county in the United States of America. For children, that is certainly the case.
I worked for Kamehameha Investment Corporation, the development arm of Bishop Estate, managing the lands in Keauhou-Kona, in particular, from 1977 to 1988. The Keauhou Kona Country Club was a major player (no pun intended) in the development of this resort area. I’m fully vetted on the groundskeeping schedules there, and at Makalei Country Club, where I was a groundskeeper from 1999 to 2001. So, I have a lot of hands-on experience with golf course maintenance.
