NEW FACILITIES FOR VOLCANO SCHOOL OF ARTS & SCIENCES won approval from the Windward Planning Commission yesterday. Big Island Video News covered the meeting, where a use permit for its Keākealani campus for grades Pre-K through 8 received approval.
     Students, parents, teachers, and school administrators traveled to the Windward Planning Commission meeting in Hilo on Thursday. They answered questions about possible noise that could disturb the surrounding residential neighborhood. Principal Kalima Kinney said, "We have good relationships with our neighbors," reported Big Island Video News.

     Lorna Jeyte, founder of Kīlauea Lodge, testified on behalf of the new campus."Our community in Volcano recognizes and supports the need for a school to service the upper Puna area and Kaʻū, as well as Volcano residents. Up to now, the school has been using the Old Volcano Road campus, which is deteriorating because it was never intended to be a permanent site."
     The long-time Volcano Village resident said, "It makes total sense to build a new facility at Keākealani, as that site was donated by Peter Lee, decades ago, to be used as a school. And, in fact was used as such for many, many years. From the 30's, I believe."
     Volcano School fourth grader Sophia McQueen testified, "We want to be able to build some new buildings so that we can all be together as one school on one campus," Big Island Video News reported.
     The commission also gave permission for high school education on the campus, as long as the enrollment would not increase. See bigislandvideonews.com

Flags will fly at half-staff through Saturday in respect
for the mass shooting victims in California.
HAWAI‘I WILL MOURN WITH CALIFORNIA THIS WEEK. At the direction of the President of the United States, Gov. David Ige has ordered that the United States flag and the Hawai‘i state flag be flown at half-staff at the State Capitol and upon all state offices and agencies, as well as the Hawai‘i National Guard in the State of Hawai‘i, until sunset on Saturday, Nov. 10, as a sign of respect for the victims of the deadly mass shooting yesterday in Thousand Oaks, California.
     The killings were carried out by a former marine trained to be a machine gun expert, who possibly suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome, according to various news reports.
     Ige said, "My heart breaks for the families of the victims of this tragedy, and I am hoping for a speedy and complete recovery of those who were injured. Hawaiʻi's connections to California are strong, and we grieve along with the Thousand Oaks community."

NO CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION will happen in Hawaiʻi during the next decade. Support for the convention garnered only 23.7 percent of the votes statewide. The last Constitutional Convention was held in 1978.
     Hawaiʻi County voted 25.9 percent for the convention, with 15,388 votes. 67.6 percent voted against a ConCon, and 6.5 percent did not vote on the issue. An abstaining vote counts as a "no."

     The Constitutional Amendment to fund public education with investment property taxes would have probably failed, had the votes counted. The state Supreme Court invalidated the question ahead of the General Election, stating the wording was too vague. Statewide, however, nearly 400,000 voted on it, with 26 percent voting "yes," at 103,631 votes.
     Hawaiʻi County voted 27.9 percent for the education amendment, with 16,569 votes. Voters cast 36,190 ballots opposing it, and 6,684 abstained, which translated to a "no."
     In Volcano, 403 people voted for a ConEd, 733 voted against, and 139 abstained.
     In Pāhala, 102 people voted for a ConEd, 235 voted against, and 41 abstained.
     In Nā‘ālehu, 218 people voted for a ConEd, 454 voted against, and 55 abstained.
     In Ocean View, 353 people voted for a ConEd, 651 voted against, and 112 abstained.
     In Miloli‘i, 111 people voted for a ConEd, 184 voted against, and 40 abstained.

NEW and UPCOMING
COLLECTING AND PROCESSING SEEDS IS THIS MONTH'S VOLUNTEER FOREST RESTORATION PROJECT hosted by Friends of Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park, on Friday, Nov. 16. from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Volunteers will collect and process seeds on the Mauna Loa Strip as part of the Park's post fire restoration effort.
     Participants will also be able to see the impacts of the recent fire and learn more about our restoration approach in this area. This will provide hands-on learning about native plant propagation for forest restoration and how this fits into the Park's broader vegetation management program. Volunteers play an important role in protecting important and threatened native ecosystems.
     Volunteers should be at least 12 years old, and be able to hike at least one mile over rough, uneven ground. Sturdy walking shoes and long pants are required, along with gear for variable weather conditions (be prepared for sun or rain with a hat, raincoat, sunscreen, etc.) plus drinking water and lunch.
     Also imperative is scrubbing the soles of one's shoes prior to arrival on site, in order to ensure outside dirt/soil and invasive species aren't tracked in. Clothing, tools, and gloves, etc. should be clean before entering the park to protect against seeds, Rapid ‘Ōhi‘a Death fungus and other invasive species.
     "Our goal is a crew of 15 people, and pre-registration is required. All participants will need to sign a Friends release form and a park volunteer form. For those under 18, an adult will need to co-sign.
     "Be aware that there can be VOG or high levels of SO2 in the area (still a possibility). If it is too heavy or the Park is closed, we'll cancel the project and try to notify everyone in advance," says the event description on fhvnp.org. Those interested in volunteering are asked to contact Patty Kupchak at forest@fhvnp.org or (808) 352-1402 by Monday evening, Nov. 12. "Please include your first and last name(s), email address(s) and a phone number where we can reach you at the last minute in case of cancellation," the event description concludes.
