    It seems that every ethnicity has members who span the spectrum of understanding and behavior. I suppose it should not be surprising that it is true of the Hawaiians also. I, too, am a Native Hawaiian and although I share some of the feelings being expressed about Mauna Kea, I cannot condone some of the tactics and expressions being made by those protesting the building of the TMT telescope.

    Desecration vs. chance to explore

    We are told that Hawaii is comprised of many cultures where everybody gets along. I think it would be more accurate to describe Hawaii as a place of many ethnicities where everyone is competing for a piece of a very small pie and trying hard, because of close proximity not to anger the other guy. I know that’s politically incorrect to opine and flies directly in the face of all the propaganda from the Hawaii Visitors Bureau, Hawaii Tourism Authority and virtually all the government agencies who seem to think their livelihood is dependent on that myth.

    Why the protest over TMT and not other development?

    Isn’t it ironic that those espousing stronger ethics and transparency are often the least ethical and transparent? One of the many promises Barack Obama made while campaigning was to have the most transparent administration ever and yet we’ve been witness to fib after fib for the last six years. And don’t you love the politically correct acronyms for lying; misspoken, misrepresented and misunderstood, etc.?

    It’s time to show aloha to Mauna Kea

  • | Posted: Apr 14 2015 - 12:05am

    I first came to Hawaii as a child in 1941 and witnessed the attack on Pearl Harbor. I returned 35 years later to help the University of Hawaii build one of early telescopes on Mauna Kea. I again returned in 1989 to manage the development of the W.M. Keck Observatory on Mauna Kea. Now as a retired resident of the Big Island, I have been watching the recent efforts by protesters to obstruct the construction of a new Thirty Meter Telescope on Mauna Kea. I would like to share my view of the situation.
