Highway 130 Meeting – Tuesday June 29th

Well I guess they quit emailing the KPAG announcement to the actual members of the actual advisory board and SSFM is now wasting money with actual snail mail announcements of the meeting.

I myself have gotten pretty frustrated with the whole process and realize that they are gonna do what ever they want to do despite what community input we do give them.

The Finau brothers, who recently were featured on Golf Channel’s The Big Break Disney Golf also invites the public to follow as they play the front 9 of our Hilo Municipal Golf Course.

“We are so pleased that the Finau family will be returning to Hilo”, said Jodie Kimura, president of the Big Island Junior Golf Association. “Thanks to Allan Ikawa of Big Island Candies who has been a tremendous supporter of junior golf and this program.”

The free, public golf clinic starts at 2 p.m. at the Hilo Municipal Golf Course driving range where the Finau brothers will conduct a swing clinic and long-drive demonstration. Gary Finau will conduct a clinic for parents on providing the proper amount of support for their junior golfers.

At approximately 3:00 p.m., the Finau brothers will move to the first tee of the municipal course to play nine holes. The public is invited to follow along and interact with the players on the course.

“We’re really looking forward to a lot of fun and valuable instruction from these outstanding young players and we hope everyone will take advantage of this unique opportunity to watch them play,” Kimura said.

Hawaiian Beaches Action Team in Action

Fred Blas and the Hawaiian Beaches Action Team were in Pahoa today

I drove through Pahoa about 6:30 am and I happened to notice that the Hawaiian Beaches Action Team was out picking up trash, weed whacking bushes and just in general working to help clean up the town.

Mahalo to Fred Blas and the Hawaiian Beaches Action Team for volunteering their time to work outside of their own district.
