Letter – Is Pork and Beef Gone with the Wind?
Molokai Ranch wants to raise and market pork and beef. Supposedly the wind energy company Pattern Energy cut its ties to Molokai Ranch and is gone with the wind. Is that the real picture? When will the Molokai Ranch pig farm start? Can Molokai people partner and grow the feed? Depends on world economics. Does it make “cents” for Molokai residents, private business, the State and Maui County to be partners in rejuvenating west end in water, hotels, golf, etc? A lot of little can make one big. Raising pigs and beef on Molokai to feed the world is a good idea — just keep the waste smell from blowing down wind.
On another page, Molokai Veterans are selling dinner plates to raise funds to complete the new Veteran Center building. Pick up your plate and listen to the U. S. Air Force Military Band at Coffees of Hawaii in Kualapuu March 16 at 6:00 p.m. Stop by the Veteran bunker in town for tickets.
