        Carroll  talks about systemic problems in appointments and hiring practices at the Department of Land and Natural Resources.    It started with Governor Ige's appointment of Suzanne Case as Chair of the Department of Land and Natural Resources, after the contentious attempt to appoint Carleton Ching.   After Case's appointment we saw an increase in the influence of the Nature Conservancy, the Castle Foundation, and other nonprofits and friends of Case on hiring practices and policy setting    Just recently, Case appointed. claiming to have selected, Dr. Bruce Anderson as head of the Aquatics Division.  Carroll wrote a letter to Suzanne Case requesting information about the appointment.  He received a "nothing" answer from  Dan Dennison, Senior Communications Manager    (see attached).  Apparently, Dr. Anderson was "recruited" for the job by Suzanne Case, bypassing normal hiring practices.  There are also a number of contractors related to the nonprofits in decision-making positions.  Case's friends may have some good ideas, but are they working in the best interests of Hawaii?  

        A caller expresses his concern for the environment and the people who use the resources, asking why are private interests being put in  place to take over control of DLNR.  

        In June Carroll talked about some of the issues with Case and the handling of sea cucumbers (listen to show).    In April Carroll talked about contractors working at DLNR (listen to show).  

        Per the following pictures, and the attached video, the city is picking up refrigerators, hot water heaters, and other appliances on the roadside and loading them into their garbage trucks.   However, as they are smashed by the compactor, the broken lines release freon and oil into the atmosphere.  This is not good.  There are businesses on Oahu that specialize in  receiving refrigerators and appliances and recovering the freon and oil for recycling.   Why has the city stopped using these facilities?    Carroll has filed a complaint with the Department of Health Solid Waste Branch.


























        These, and other kittens like them, are looking for a home.  Ages range from 3 to 12 months.  

        They have been neutered or spayed, and they are litter box trained.   Now, all  they need is your love.  Who can resist a new kitten?
