NORTH SHORE, O‘AHU – Chef Robert Irvine of Dinner: Impossible is back in Hawai‘i on a mission to feed the cast and crew of the hit ABC series LOST.

Robert is “stranded” on the deserted LOST location set of Papailoa Beach in Hale‘iwa. Using food found on the beach and minimal cooking supplies, and with the help of Executive Chef Jon Matsubara of The Royal Hawaiian Hotel, Robert must figure out a way to quickly create a delicious meal for 90 hungry Hollywood types before his time runs out.

Will Robert’s creativity be enough for him to succeed on his LOST Hawai‘i mission?

The Hawai‘i Visitors and Convention Bureau partnered with Starwood Hawaii to assist with the on-island filming of Dinner: Impossible’s LOST Hawai‘i episode.

The GET Tax Plan Circulating Around the Capitol

GET Tax Plan-2

…attached a plan that is circulating around the capitol that might interest you. I also hear that some people are thinking about calling for democratic legislators to reach super-majority agreement on revenue generating legislation to forestall Lingle from being allowed to make further large budget cuts that would result if the legislature approves the four revenue-generating bills (deferred in the senate on April 14). The senate does not have enough votes to override vetoes of the 4 bills backed by the house, but the house does not have enough votes to override a veto of the GET. In either case, the governor will have to fill the budget gap by making further cuts in amount of about $250M.

Some senators are proposing the attached GET tax plan that would offset its regressivity, ie people earning under $60,000 would have their taxes reduced, and that plan is attached…
