Imagine that… Hawaii actually using solar power in their schools? I know that HAAS school in Pahoa has solar panels. Wouldn’t that be something if more and more schools started actually producing energy instead of using it?

Puna resident Greg Henkel has started up a new “CartoonBlog” and I think Dave Corrigan, Aaron Stene and Myself were targeted with his first ever post… Well on second thought… I guess it was just Dave and Aaron because I’m almost bald.
