CANDIDATES FOR COUNTY COUNCIL AIMING TO REPRESENT KAʻŪ are offering up talk story sessions, as ballots reach registered voters by mail for submittal by Aug 13. The contest is non-partisan.
Candidate Michelle Galimba, the 54-year old cattle rancher and land conservationist, announced a Talk Story with County Council Candidate Michelle Galimba on Friday, July 29 at St. Judeʻs Church in Ocean View (92-8606 Paradise Circle Makai). She will also meet the public at Cooper Center in Volcano Village (19-4030 Wright Rd.) on Monday, Aug. 1. Galimba said, "I would love to meet you and understand what issues are important to you, as well as talk about my priorities and vision for our district and island. My guiding principle in making decisions, now and if elected to the Council, is that ʻit has to work for everyone.' In other words the needs of the community as a whole, rather than any special interests, is what matters. Also, we need to create economic and social opportunity for everyone through diversifying our economy, making affordable housing available, and helping local people to thrive. Please come by to get a bite to eat and talk story this Friday in Ocean View and on Monday in Volcano. Also donʻt forget to vote, and if you havenʻt already, please register to vote, itʻs not too late." Register to vote at https://elections.hawaii.gov. See www.votegalimba.com.

A MAGNITUDE 4.3 EARTHQUAKE ROCKED PĀHALA AND THE GREAT CRACK at 5:46 p.m. on Tuesday. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center reported that the earthquake on Kīlauea's Southwest rift zone was not large enough to cause a tsunami for the Island of Hawaiʻi. "As in all earthquakes, be aware of the possibility of after-shocks. If the earthquake was strongly felt in your area, precautionary checks should be made for any damages; especially to utility connections of Gas, Water, and Electricity," said the statement from County Civil Defense. About an hour later the seamount Loʻihi offshore of Ka‘ū experienced at 4.6 Magnitude quake.

The impact ranged from intermittent or slow service to inability to place or receive calls, depending on the type of service, location and service provider, says a Hawaiian Telcom statement.
The location of the cut was in a remote area near Waikoloa Village. Hawaiian Telcom technicians arrived on site at approximately 1 p.m. They assessed the damage and got to work on restoring services. Services were restored by late afternoon.
Hawaiian Telcom customers who continue to experience issues can submit an online support request.
Participants gain foundational skills in applied math and electrical safety as well as the required subjects
According to the course description: Upon successful completion the participant will: Apply mathematical reasoning to solve technical problems; analyze the nature of DC and AC electricity and the quantities, units and measurements associated with it; demonstrate the identification of the abbreviations, acronyms, and symbols of DC and AC electrical components in an electrical circuit, and the function of each one; calculate the voltage, resistance, and current for series, parallel, and series/parallel circuits for DC and AC circuits.
Those who complete the course will be able to apply the understanding of Resistance, Inductance, and Capacitance to DC and AC circuits, and its application to Power Loads; correlate the requirements, standards and information in the NEC to the proper installation or modification of electrical systems, circuits, equipment and conductors; demonstrate the function and proper use of electrical tools and test instruments used in the installation, maintenance and troubleshooting of motors and motor control systems and demonstrate and explain how AC and DC motors and their control mechanisms interact with other components in an integrated electromechanical or mechatronic system.
In addition, course completion will require graduates to be able to integrate a coordinated methodology of measurements and adjustments on motors and motor control components in an electromechanical or mechatronic system; demonstrate how to protect motors and prevent motor failure from operating outside of their physical and/or electrical specifications; and develop a troubleshooting methodology to localize, identify and document causes of malfunctions in motor circuits, based upon the technical documentation.
