NEW DRUNKEN DRIVING LAWS ARE BEGINNING TO TAKE EFFECT "to end the crisis of drunk drivers killing innocent people," says a statement issued today by the state House of Representatives. The new law passed by the Legislature this session places tough penalties on DUI offenders. The author of the bill, state Rep. Chris Lee, pointed out that "last year, 33 people were killed by drunk drivers in Hawaiʻi and each death was the result of a choice by a driver knowingly getting behind the wheel drunk. We will tolerate this reckless behavior no more. Our new law substantially increases fines, adds years of automatic license revocation, and helps send repeat drunk drivers to prison for up to five years to keep our roads safe."
     Since the bill was signed into law this month, at least four repeat DUI offenders have been arrested and face long prison sentences and other penalties under the new law. The new law makes a third DUI arrest a felony rather than a misdemeanor.

heftier penalties. Image from dui.laws.com
     The new law increases fines, lengths of license revocation for first time offenders, and specifies that a habitual operator of a vehicle under the influence of an intoxicant convicted two or more times can be sentenced to a five-year prison term or probation of five years, along with a mandatory revocation of license for three to five years, and a fine of between $2,000 to $5,000. In addition, any vehicle owned and operated by the person committing the crime may be subject to forfeiture.
     The bill also established a task force to determine which further changes in our DUI laws are needed to help keep drunk drivers off the road.
     Arkie Koehl, Public Policy Chair of the group Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), said Hawaiʻi has had very lenient DUI laws for years. "We are looking for the task force to develop a comprehensive overhaul of the DUI laws as they stand now. There is a number of things that need to be changed," he said.

LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS MET TODAY REGARDING THE MAUNAKEA STANDOFF.  Mayor Harry Kim said he wants to open Maunakea Access Road to the public, and telescope workers and stargazing enterprises. Police officers may begin escorting telescope workers through the barricade set up by Protectors of Maunakea, who have established an encampment there and received much publicity and support for their cause.
     Protest leaders say they also want access to the summit and will allow people headed to Maunakea summit to pass through their barricade when builders of the Thirty Meter Telescope take their program elsewhere. TMT officials say they want to stay at Maunakea and work with those who oppose it to come up with a solution. TMT would be the largest telescope on the planet. Protectors of Maunakea said it would defile the mountain, as a spiritual place for Hawaiians.

     Operators of existing telescopes say they are unable to do their research and that the telescopes are at risk without regular maintenance. Some maintenance workers have traveled through the blockade to reach their work sites.

THE MUELLER REPORT, detailed for seven hours by Special Counsel Robert Mueller before Congress this week, drew conclusions from Sen. Mazie Hirono. In a message to constituents, she said, "Three things are clear from Mueller's testimony. The Mueller Report did not exonerate Pres. Donald Trump; there is overwhelming evidence of obstruction of justice by Trump; and the Department of Justice is essentially preventing Mueller from indicting Trump because of its Office of Legal Counsel's memo, stating that a sitting President cannot be indicted, which is outrageous," said Hirono. "No one is above the law — including Trump — which is why I'm renewing my call to begin an impeachment inquiry," said Hirono.

     The Mueller Report is the result of two years of research into Russian tampering with U.S. elections, and the connections between Russia and the Trump campaign.

TULSI GABBARD FILED A LAW SUIT AGAINST GOOGLE this week, contending that the company unfairly blocked her campaign's Google Ads account during the first debate of the Democratic Presidential candidates. A statement from her campaign says she was the most searched candidate during the debate. "Then, without any explanation, Google suspended Tulsi's Google Ads account.
     "For hours, Tulsi's campaign advertising account remained offline while Americans everywhere were searching for information about her. During this time, Google obfuscated and dissembled with a series of inconsistent and incoherent reasons for its actions. In the end, Google never explained to us why Tulsi's account was suspended," says her campaign statement.
Jason Kaluaʻu caught both the 1st place sow, at 
138.8 lbs. and the 3rd place boar, at 151.8 lbs.

     The statement contends that "Google controls 88 percent of all internet searches in the United States – essentially giving it control over our access to information. That's one reason why Tulsi has been a vocal proponent of breaking up the tech monopolies. And no matter what the motivation was for doing so, Google's arbitrary and capricious decision to suspend Tulsi's Google Ads account during a critical moment in our campaign should be of concern to all political candidates and in fact all Americans."
     Gabbard told The New York Times, "Google's discriminatory actions against my campaign are reflective of how dangerous their complete dominance over internet search is, and how the increasing dominance of big tech companies over our public discourse threatens our core American values. This is a threat to free speech, fair elections, and to our democracy, and I intend to fight back on behalf of all Americans."

Pāhala Recycling & Transfer Station will be open three instead of four days a week starting Aug. 1.

NEW HOURS FOR THE PĀHALA TRANSFER STATION BEGIN NEXT WEEK. Starting Aug. 1, it is open 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., Fridays, Sundays, and Tuesdays. The fourth day, Saturday, is eliminated, say county officials, because the volume of refuse is smaller in Pāhala than at transfer stations operating four or more days.
     The Waiʻōhinu transfer station remains open seven days a week, 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Ocean View is open 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays only. Volcano is open Monday, Thursday, and Saturday, 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Miloliʻi is open seven days a week, sunrise to sunset.

COMMUNITY SPEAKOUT happens Saturday, July 27, from 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the Keaʻau High School cafeteria. Hawaiʻi County residents are invited to drop in any time. The event – part of the county's Talk Action, Take Action initiative – is to share information with and gather input from the community regarding priority Kīlauea recovery objectives for Hawaiʻi Island.
     The day-long event will include the latest, most accurate information on recovery. It will include workshops and other opportunities for learning. The event is free and family-friendly; there will be interactive, educational activities for keiki, as well as food and refreshments.
     The event will address the critical challenges and opportunities with regard to Kīlauea eruption recovery; raise awareness and understanding of the disaster recovery process that includes county, state, and federal efforts; and share information about collaborative community-based recovery actions.
     There will be two workshops, with key financial and economic experts:
     The ‘Ohana Self-Sufficiency Workshop, from 10:30 a.m. to noon, will cover issues and opportunities relating to financial capability, housing, education, and employment. Panelists from the workshop include leaders who will speak about available resources and programs to help families.
     The Economic Recovery Workshop, from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., will cover issues and opportunities relating to economic impact baseline and implications, community-based tourism and regional identity, agriculture and food systems, and energy and transportation. Panelists from the workshop include Paul Brewbaker, former Chief Economist of the Bank of Hawaiʻi, and Stephen Jordan, CEO of the Institute for Sustainable Development.
     SpeakOut's results will provide additional information to the Puna Community Development Plan Action Committee to make informed recommendations regarding priority recovery objectives. The committee meets on Tuesday, August 6 to consider various recovery goals relating to village town centers, infrastructure, natural and cultural resource management, and health and wellbeing.
     To qualify for federal government disaster recovery funds, this level of public input is required. Said Recovery Manager, Diane Ley, "One big goal of the SpeakOut is to catalyze collaborative partnerships – a Community-Based Recovery Network – and to increase involvement by residents in the recovery planning and implementation process."
     Bob Agres, Manager for Disaster Recovery Community Engagement & Collaboration, said, "We designed the event to provide an opportunity where you and your family can share your voice and shape what your future Puna looks like. We hope the exchange of information will provide insight and will lead to many ways for the community to engage in the recovery process."
     SpeakOut follows the recently announced County surveys to collect community input that will shape both near- and long-term recovery efforts on Hawaiʻi Island. The surveys will be available at the event and are on the Kīlauea Recovery website, recovery.hawaiicounty.gov/connect/impact-status-survey-suite. For more information on the Community SpeakOut, go to recovery.hawaiicounty.gov/Home/Components/Calendar/Event/88/138.
