    September 16, 2018,   Honolulu, Hawaii.  

    Carroll is now broadcasting on the Internet at www.talk808.com.   Listen live on Sunday mornings, 9-11 a.m.   
    We want to hear from you.   Call 808-782-6627 to participate.

    Carroll talks about managing resources, and in particular the Anuenue Fisheries Research Center on Oahu currently used for hatching trout.    A while back, the Nuuanu Reservoir was stocked with catfish for local fishermen.  The Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) abandoned that project.  Now DLNR may be secretly talking about stopping the trout program or moving the hatchery to Kauai.  Carroll has been asking questions, but not getting answers.   Carroll has talked about DLNR hiring people from nonprofit organizations in the past, while pushing away civil service employees.  Now Carroll is particularly concerned that more people from nonprofit organizations, without proper qualifications, will be coming into the system to manage resources.

    Carroll then noted Dr. Bruce Anderson is acting director of the Department of Health as well as working on projects to reorganize the DLNR Division of Aquatic Resources (DAR) where he was the administrator, and  reportedly will be returning as administrator.    How does he have time to work on both jobs? The staff has not been told about any changes coming up, and the public is not being told about a possible reorganization that may affect their activities.    So DLNR, tell us what's happening.  The public needs to be included in planning any changes.       

    Carroll then talks more about DLNR Enforcement Chief Robert Farrell, his law enforcement training program, and how he wants to change the Law Enforcement Division with money from the Castle Foundation and other nonprofit organizations.

    Carroll is very concerned about the background of some of the people in law enforcement, how they are being trained, and how they will deal with the public.

    The second hour Carroll talks with Rod Tam, a former state senator.   He brings insight into current activities of the state government.   Rod Tam talks about the economy, bus fares, rail, audits, and other issues impacting the people of Hawaii.  Carroll asks if opposition to Trump by our congressional delegation will affect Hawaii.   They also talk about contractors versus civil service positions at the Board of Water Supply and other locations.    Rod Tam has established an organization,  Financial Accountability for Rail Tax Association.    He is concerned the state did not do due diligence on the rail, and it will cost the taxpayer more and more in the future.
