  1. Hey Damon,

    This is Jim Kaiser – the father in this story.

    I’ve followed your blog since you started it and I’ve talked with you on the Punaweb forum in the past (under a different name) so it was funny for me to see my story posted on your blog.

    I visit Hawaii as often as I can and I had property in HPP – that’s why they were looking for me there.

    Anyhow, there’s always two sides to every story – you can see the other side of this one at http://www.MyNameIsBen.org and check out a recent article about my case at…. http://www.examiner.com/x-28441-Mesa-Progressive-Examiner~y2009m10d30-Should-the-government-decide-how-you-raise-your-child#comments

    I’m still enjoying your blog.
