Peace leader Aung San Suu Kyi’s first day of events in Hawai’i began today with a visit to the Bishop Museum hosted by Pillars of Peace Hawai’i. The tour of Bishop Museum provided an opportunity for Aung San Suu Kyi to gain a deeper understanding of Hawai’i’s rich culture and history and how these elements have shaped Hawai’i today. Upon her departure, Bishop Museum staff presented her with a special gift — a manele a’e (Hawaiian soapberry) seed lei made by local artist Marques Hanalei Marzan from a tree on the grounds of Bishop Museum.

Aung San Suu Kyi also attended a private luncheon at the East-West Center with local leaders. Immediately following the lunch, she participated in a business roundtable discussion, which brought together leaders in Hawai’i’s political and business spheres as they shared ideas on the rule of law, responsible tourism development and government issues. The purpose of the roundtable discussion was to spark dialogue on the roles of compassion, diversity and culture in practicing peace.

“Having Aung San Suu Kyi participate in a cultural exchange provides all of us with an opportunity to continue to learn from other leaders and places around the world,” said Kelvin Taketa of the Hawai’i Community Foundation. “I was truly honored and humbled to hear her speak and learn from her leadership and unwavering commitment to peace.”

Pillars of Peace Hawai’i is co-hosting Aung San Suu Kyi’s visit as part of the ongoing Hawai’i Community Foundation initiative, “Pillars of Peace Hawai’i: Building Peace on a Foundation of Aloha,” which launched in April 2012.

Aung San Suu Kyi’s visit is part of the ongoing Hawai’i Community Foundation initiative, “Pillars of Peace Hawai’i: Building Peace on a Foundation of Aloha,” which launched in April 2012 with the visit of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. One of the program’s goals is to bring global peace leaders to Hawai’i to exchange ideas about the many forms of peace that exist here in the islands and around the world. Through these visits, the program hopes to spark dialogue about the roles of compassion, diversity and culture as key components for practicing peace.

In addition to hosting His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Pillars of Peace Hawai’i has sponsored peace leaders Archbishop Desmond Tutu and John Hunter, founder of the World Peace Game for students. Pillars of Peace Hawai’i is a program funded primarily by the Omidyar ‘Ohana Fund of the Hawai’i Community Foundation, a $50 million charitable fund established in 2009 by Hawai’i residents Pierre and Pam Omidyar.

Big Island Police Still Looking for 47-Year-Old Man Involved in Reported Shooting Last Summer

Hawaiʻi Island police are renewing their request for the public’s help in locating 47-year-old James Gannon Coffey of Mountain View, who is wanted in connection with a reported shooting last summer.

James Gannon Coffey

James Gannon Coffey

A 39-year-old Mountain View woman reported that at about 3:30 p.m. on July 3, she and Coffey got into a verbal confrontation while she was at his home on Overview Road in Mountain View to retrieve her property. As she was leaving, she reportedly heard what sounded like a gunshot. As she turned toward the suspect, he allegedly pointed what appeared to be a firearm at her and discharged another round.

The woman was not injured. Police classified the incident as a second-degree attempted murder.

Coffey is described as Caucasian, 5-foot-10, about 150 pounds with hazel eyes and short graying hair. He may be operating a brown late model Toyota pickup truck. He is also wanted on an outstanding arrest warrant for violating probation.

Police advise the public that Coffey may be armed and dangerous and that they should not approach him but, instead, should call police if they know where he is.

Police ask that anyone with information on Coffey’s whereabouts call Detective Joel Field at 961-2381 or email him at jfield@co.hawaii.hi.us.

Tipsters who prefer to remain anonymous may call Crime Stoppers at 961-8300 in Hilo or 329-8181 in Kona and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000. Crime Stoppers is a volunteer program run by ordinary citizens who want to keep their community safe. Crime Stoppers doesn’t record calls or subscribe to caller

National Park Service Releases Final Plan & EIS for Protecting and Restoring Native Ecosystems by Managing Non-Native Ungulates

The National Park Service (NPS) has released a Final Plan and Environmental Impact Statement (plan/EIS) for Protecting and Restoring Native Ecosystems by Managing Non-Native Ungulates in Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park.

Volcanoe EIS

The plan provides a park-wide framework to systematically guide non-native ungulate management activities in a manner that supports long-term ecosystem protection, supports natural ecosystem recovery and provides desirable conditions for active ecosystem restoration. It also supports protection and preservation of cultural resources.

The NPS’s preferred alternative includes a progression of management phases, monitoring, and considerations for the use of management tools; a population objective of zero non-native ungulates, or as low as practicable, in managed areas; complete boundary fencing for Kahuku and ‘Ōla‘a rainforest; and potential use of localized internal fencing to assist in the control of non-native ungulates. Control techniques would be primarily lethal, but non-lethal techniques could also be considered. Volunteer programs would continue, but modifications would be required for lethal removal programs to meet current NPS practices.

The plan/EIS is available online: http://parkplanning.nps.gov/havo_ecosystem_feis. After a required 30-day waiting period following release of the plan/EIS, the NPS will finalize its choice of alternative in a record of decision.

 

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Sites To Help People Claim Earned Income Tax Credit

People who work and earn less than $50,270 from wages, self-employment or farming may be eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit or EITC and free help preparing their tax return. Today, January 25th, marks the 7th National EITC Day, a nationwide effort to increase public awareness about EITC and free tax preparation sites.

Although an estimated four out of five eligible workers and families get the credit, one in five still miss EITC. Either because they don’t claim it when filing, or don’t file a tax return. This is money that can make a difference. Last year, the credit returned close to $62 billion dollars to over 27 million workers. On Hawaii Island, families saved about $180 in filing charges and claimed over $170,000 in federal credits.

Workers who qualify for EITC could receive larger refunds. It can mean up to $475 in EITC for people without children, and up to $5,891 for those with three or more qualifying children.  EITC varies by income, family size and filing status and the average EITC amount last year was $2,200.

With the exception of some disability income, people must work to qualify for EITC. They earned it. Now they must file, claim it and get it.  EITC is a valuable but complex tax break for working families but free help is available from IRS-certified volunteers.
