Public Shoreline Management Meeting Friday
Community Contributed By Walter Ritte
On Friday March 29, Good Friday, an important meeting is being called by the Pala`au Moku of the Aha Kiole O Molokai. A “Shoreline Management Plan” from Ilio Point to Pelekunu on the north shore of Molokai will be presented.
The plan gives management powers of the shoreline resources to the community. Rules are needed in order to preserve the resources so our children and their children will be able to have free fish, limu, opihi, he`e, lobster, crabs, etc.
Come and learn, and share your mana’o and help manage the Ho`olehua icebox. The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. at the Lanikeha Center.
For those looking for a more active day, join the Molokai Moms on a Mission the following day, March 30, at 9 a.m. at Kulana Oiwi, as they march to bring awareness to the foods we are buying and feeding our children. This is part of a statewide “March in March” initiative with marches on each island ending with Molokai. The goal is to educate people about the new giant corporate chemical farmers now in Hawaii and the GMO crops they are growing. The March will end at the Library, where free food, entertainment and educational talks will be given.
