Carroll talks about problems with Hawaii's political campaigns and candidates, particularly Governor Neil Abercrombie's bid for re-election. Abercrombie learned from the masters when he was our long-term representative in the do-nothing United States Congress. Now he has passed those lessons on to the State of Hawaii. Carroll
provides blatant examples, and callers join the coversation with their own opinions and stories, pro and con.
It's no longer easy to pull the wool over our eyes. Be sure to vote in the primary next Saturday, August 9!
The second hour of the show Carroll and callers discuss the Deedy trial and racism. Carroll closes the hour with information about assessments and appeals to the City and County of Honolulu's Board of Review, Real Property Assessment Divisions I, II and III. According to sources, the Real Property Assessment Division III (Central Oahu to North
Shore) has not had a quorum for a year or more because the mayor has failed to make appointments. Carroll will talk more about this next week.
BAD NEWS FOR WHALES
On August 1, 2014, a melon-headed whale died during RIMPAC (link here to HawaiiNewsNow story). A few weeks ago a dead sperm whale, previouly in good health, was found dead in the Heeia Park area of Oahu. Is it coincidence?
Whales have died during every RIMPAC, as well as during other tests conducted by the Navy in all parts of the world. Carroll researched the issue back in 1998. In 2001 the Navy admitted sonar used in an exercise in the Bahamas killed whales. Between 1993 and 1998 research was gathered on the number of whales believed killed by sonar. Also, read Carroll's story regarding Hawaii whales endangered by military testing. Why does the Navy keep denying the problem is theirs when so many whales, dolphins, and other marine mammals, as well a fauna, have
died during RIMPAC operations?
