According to North Shore Oahu residents, poorly cleaned and maintained bathroom facilities at Honolulu city and county beach parks have been an issue for at least 20 years.  Despite claims from city officials that a roving crew of 10 workers monitors the facilities, local Haleiwa residents consider the condition of the bathroom facilities "atrocious".  Critics say the city must do a better job of keeping bathrooms safe and clean.  Residents say it’s embarrassing to have visitors complain of our public facilities, especially when public restrooms in many parts of the world are better maintained.  Aloha, Russ.

UH Coaches Arnold, Beeman, Trapasso await approval on contracts – Hawaii News Now

A bit of a disconnect here between reality and fantasy.  While the UH-Manoa athletic department is facing financial issues, three "prominent" coaches are waiting for anticipated pay increases in their contracts.  Keep their pay as is until these guys turn in a winning season or two.  When I worked in the radio business, failure to produce good ratings or decent sales figures usually meant you were looking for another job.  I suppose this is comparing apples to oranges, but it still bothers me that non-winning programs get rewarded for failure.  Just my two-cents worth.  I’m off my soap box now.  Aloha, Russ.

Granted, this isn’t the usual picture visitors see of our beaches.  What these visitors fail to recognize is that these degraded beach conditions are largely the result of heavy run off from heavy rains, landslides, and erosion following the passing of a weakened tropical storm–in fact two storms in the passing of a week-and-a-half. So, some of the poor beach conditions are the result of natural processes.  When I lived on the U.S. mainland, I saw similar flooding and devastation when large rivers overflowed or when forest fires charred swaths of land where people lived and worked.  None of these views were pretty either.  So, this is a case of calling the kettle black. Have a little patience and understanding … mother Nature rules, not we frail humans.  Aloha, Russ.

The second Hawaii Space Exploration Analog and Simulation Mission (Hi-SEAS 2) ends on Friday, completing a four-month simulated Mars exploration on the slopes of the Mauna Loa volcano on Hawaii Island.  Hi-SEAS is a program designed "to operate a simulated environment to test what will be necessary for future astronauts to live on the surface of Mars for an extended period of time."  During the experiment, scientists living in the confined dome conducted numerous research projects and experienced limited contact with "the outside world."  Even communications were delayed 20 minutes to simulate the time it would take for radio signals to reach Mars.  Aloha, Russ.
