So I Heard I Missed a Great Parade… But What’s With All this Bickering?

I’m totally bummed I missed the parade that was held to honor the Pahoa High School State Championship team in basketball…

But what is up with all the politics of this event that I’m now hearing and reading about now?

He said… she said… they said… and we said… JESUS FOLKS… this was for the damn kids  folks… quit bickering already and let’s move on already!

Just a Reminder During this Political Season… Island Candidates!

I will not be accepting any advertisements for any political candidates on my blog this year, those that know… it was the same for me in the last election.

I will be accepting announcements from candidates regarding their campaigns.

I hope that folks understand that any political announcement that may be made on my blog is simply being passed on by me and does not mean I endorse that candidate.

I think it benefits us all for candidates to push their message.  If any candidate begins to try and use my blog as a “soap box”… it will be quickly squandered.

I do welcome political announcements, messages and letters of support.  I won’t allow any blatant advertisements.

With that said, I will do my best to try and not even open my mouth as to whom I’m gonna vote to this year.

I may be referring to this post a lot…

So once again… I’m not accepting ads… Please folks don’t think any messages that I receive from candidates stand as an endorsement of that candidate.
