What I Can Say… Pending Trial of Census Worker Arrested

Many folks have been asking me about the outcome of the Census Bureau worker, Jay Haas, that was arrested for trespassing.  The trial was originally scheduled for July  22nd, however, it has been pushed back.

I can’t say much as I am subpoenaed for this pending trial.

The date for the pending trial is August 5th at the Federal Building over in Honolulu.

My statements will come out under oath.

More 1960 Hilo Tsunami Photos… Before and After

Here are some more pictures that Charles Hansen has sent to me.  The first four pictures are before the Tsunami and the last one is  an aerial that was taken a few months after the Tsunami.

Like the other posts, the commentary below the picture is from Mr. Hansen.

We enjoyed a picnic on the North shore, two days before the tsunami, not aware of the panic that would soon follow.

The SS Lurline readies to leave port, for the open ocean, avoiding the arrival of the pending tsunami.

With the SS Lurline in the background, young boys compete for coins thrown by passengers.

As the SS Lurline slowly moves away for the pier young boys eagerly await coins tossed to them by passengers.

This aerial view was taken months later. The Hilo Theater is seen center and next to the ocean
