Mike Hale Tosses Name Into Kokubun Vacancy

Former Senate District 2 Republican Candidate Mike Hale tossed his name into the Senate District 2 Kokubun vacancy that was generated when Kokubun joined Governor Abercrombie’s cabinet.

However, I don’t think he realizes that Abercrombie can or would even appoint a registered Republican into the position… Or maybe he’s just joking around a bit.

“I felt compelled to let you know, personally, that I’ve entered the race for State Senate, District 2 which includes; Hilo, Pahoa, north to Hamakua and south to Naalehu.

My focus will be: Small Business and Environment

I’ve researched the current Senator’s record and found the ratings to be unacceptable. Please see ‘project vote smart’  http://www.votesmart.org/summary.php?can_id=54120

Those that know me, know of my dedication to the environment and special attention to small business’.

I have posted my resume’ on my page, www.michaelwhale.com ,where, you’ll also find some my perspectives and viewpoints.

Puna “Youtube Event” in the Making… Calling All Creative Puna People

Mike Hale, of the Punatic Cyber Cafe, talks about a new project that is seeking Puna people for a “Cyber” documentary.  It sounds kind of like a spin off of MTV’s “Real World” where they follow a cast of characters around and just show what their every day life is like in Puna.

This is a call to action for local musicians, artists and eccentric characters. We need filmers and characters for local drama-documentary-comedy series being kicked off as a non-profit community service. Were here For Puna & Pahoas Talent.


The Punatic Cyber Cafe now has it’s own youtube site that you can find here.

Momentum is building as more and more Raving Punatics come out of the woodwork to film or be filmed. Here, too-long-time resident “Drainbow Dark” previously known as “Rainbow Light” has been booted off the property- twice- by the cops- not shown.
