Schatz Discusses Molokai’s Strengths, Challenges

Lt. Governor Brian Schatz visited Molokai last Wednesday, attending an award ceremony honoring Monsanto Hawaii’s Molokai farm for receiving the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s top safety designation. He also visited several Molokai businesses and organizations before sitting down with The Molokai Dispatch for a question and answer session.

TMD: How has office been so far for you?

SCHATZ:  We’ve been making good progress. I think it’s important to remember how far we’ve come in the last seven months. We started with a $1.3 billion budget shortfall and not a lot of economic momentum. By the end of the year, we expect to have a balanced financial plan and we’re gonna see some improvement in the private economy as well. We understand that there are special challenges on Molokai and that’s one of the reasons that I’m here on behalf of the governor, is to better understand how state government can help folks and try to create jobs.

the public utilities commission to decide upon together, hopefully by consensus. The truth is Oahu is not in a position to generate its own energy, there’s not enough land, and so Molokai has an opportunity to benefit from the fact that they can provide electricity to Oahu. So it’s just a matter of configuring an arrangement so that Molokai gets its fair share.

TMD: Should the community stay so opposed to Big Wind, and their mind isn’t changed, do you still think this is the right path?

SCHATZ: I think it depends on how you define community. It’s very early in the process, and I’m confident that we can find ways to make renewable energy work and still have respect for and appreciation for the places where the energy gets generated. So I don’t want to get through a hypothetical about well what if it doesn’t work out, because I think that would be a couple of years from now, but I really do think there are models that work. For instance, with Puna on the Big Island, geothermal, there was strong opposition to that and now because the model has changed, you have many of the same people who were opposed to the project asking for additional wells and additional geothermal energy. Why is that? Because their opposition in the ’70s wasn’t about being opposed to geothermal energy, it was about a sense that it wasn’t fair. And so if you do these things in a way that’s fair, then you can get maybe not everyone unanimously in favor of something, but you can get some degree of consensus. And I think as long as you’re respectful and fair, that’s the right way to do things.

TMD: We just wanted to talk a little bit about agriculture. How do you think Molokai can contribute more agriculturally to the state?

SCHATZ: I think there are a lot of people who want to farm. One of the challenges on Molokai is water, and I think our Department of Hawaiian Homelands and our Department of Agriculture are working to try to make sure that those who want to farm have water that’s available and affordable. So that’s the government’s job. The government’s job is to set the table, set the stage for agriculture to occur. We can’t force anybody to farm or anybody to buy a product from a farm, but what we can do is provide training, provide technical expertise. We can do a little bit in the area of creating markets through the Department of Education, through our prison system. There’s a strong desire to make sure that if we’re buying food for our own prisoners and certainly for our own keiki that it ought to be as much as possible local food. And that would be to create a built-in market, and that all takes time. So we’re working on those issues. If we can create a market and allow people’s land to have access to water, that’s real progress.

    Apart from the usual politician’s middle of the road answers, about the only thing I gleaned from TMD Q&A was that the big wind will eventually be on Molokai.
    It may be a while but Oahu will be back again and again until it is a reality. Oahu claims they have no space…. read… not in my backyard. The footprint of a windmill is about the same size as a house but you need miles of access roads connecting the windmills for maintenance and to put any kind of dent in Oahu’s oil consumption you will need hundreds of windmills.
    Nuff said.

    If you are my permanent reader I guess you know that zac efron desnudo is not the first one I am writing about. There were tons of celebrities that have been on my review. But today we will change our subject a bit as I will try to present you lisa edelstein naked that you will definitely watch but later. And right in this time you can expect some very nice things to know about her. This girl has got and incredibly huge (I bet you thought I’ll say boobs, but no) sense of humor. She will entertain you as well so don’t miss it.

    When your job is entertain people by giving them some movie with you having sex in them, your imagination about the whole world starts to changes and sometimes you question yourself “Is this what I will do for the rest of my life?” or like this “Is that what I wanted to do?”. But according to andie macdowell nude she does this job with her soul and pleasure. Some people are having sex just for their pleasure or for fun, but for her it is a lifestyle and work. Imagine her coming on work and straight getting nude… not bad huh. Anyway, I have prepared something that will explain her attitude to that work. But before that I want you to know that she has kids right now and she said that will no longer work in that dirty but amazing industry.

    One thing I don’t like about her body is definitely molly ringwald nude. No, don’t get me wrong. I like the size of her tits and their shape too. It is just they are not real… that’s it. Surely in porn industry you have got to have perfect forms and gorgeous body but this is something disgusting to me… She is 36 years old which means soon enough she will have to do another operation as those implants in her breast will lose their shape and other properties.

    Here are some of her quotes. “I’m good at a lot of things. Sex is being one of them – so I think I’ve certainly succeeded at that.” There is nothing else to add as sex is surely what she can be proud of. A lot of people who doesn’t work in porn industry think about themselves as a sex bombs or something but they should see one of eva mendes desnuda when she is at work. After that I don’t think they will keep calling themselves this way… She is a pros so don’t mess with her.

    karen gillan naked said that she got lucky not to having caught any sexual diseases although she was working without condoms for two years in the row. I have to say she got lucky as a lot of people get infected with just having simple sex. Her immune system is bullet proof and that’s why she is probably healthy.

    I was watching bai ling nude for like ten times by myself and couple of more with friends of mine. They said this one is the finest porn they have ever seen. I was like “don’t thank me… she did the whole job there”. By the way all of us have noticed that she makes eye contact during every sex video. I remember her saying this is something very hard to do and it is like reading a book while on rollercoaster. This saying was very hilarious and couldn’t stop laughing for like 2 straight minutes. We thought that it is easy to do but I guess she wouldn’t lie to people.

    There are such many kristen stewart nude pics posting on the web so that it is easier to count till a hundred thousand than them. She likes to do this kind of job too because having sex in front of the cameras might get you bored. You are limited in your movement there but when it comes to posing to a photographer she can take any pose and her hands are free if you follow me. Here is such a quote from her that explains her attitude to posing. “Posing nude has to be one of my favorite things in the whole world” See, I told you she loves that kind of job as well. And my favorite things are watching those photos of her naked. All I want to do right now is to thank her for such pictures. I was growing up on them… now you can laugh if you got the joke.

    What else can be better than madeline zima nude? Oh, wait a minute… I said “else”. Oh yeah, I was talking about her naked pics by the way but it is just I forgot to include that to my review. You might want to ask why I couldn’t just correct what I just typed. I am sorry, my rules won’t allow me to. Anyway, just pretend you don’t know anything about geri halliwell nude and you hear that name for the very first time.

    Here are some data about victoria silvstedt nu. She is 36 years old and her height is 5’7 which is great I think. Her birthday is the same as Hugh Hefner’s which means April 9. She is pretty good looking woman for that age and her weight only 110 lbs. In that age weighting only that deserves an award I guess. She was sweating in gym all the time and that just had to lead to that result. If you want to be that thin as she is then why don’t you start going to gym right from now. For a woman who wants to do that I suggest to put a poster of tonya harding nude somewhere in your room so that you could compare your body to her. Guys also can put the same poster but for completely other reason if you follow me.

    Besides talking about her body in general let’s stare at perrey reeves nude for a few seconds… Here, are you done? Ok, then I see you tomorrow.

    Many of you haven’t seen sophia bush nude but this place will fix it. Moreover if someone hears this name for the very first time I think I can handle that either.

    Of course you wouldn’t mind starting with watching some great pictures of sarah chalke naked but I insist you be patient just for a couple of more minutes as right now it would be great to listen to one of her famous quotes.” I try my hardest to push the point that I am a feminist. I really think it’s important that people know that the women in this industry are empowered. They run it, man. It’s awesome.” Well, I have to say she doesn’t look like feminist at all in her videos. Another thing is that she doesn’t run man… Man runs her in all those sex videos. Maybe she meant something else but that’s how I got it and there is nothing I can do. You probably also don’t like to change your opinion, right? Ok, let’s leave this quote already and move to something you like the most.

    I was talking about sophia myles nude because it is not hard to guess what people like the most about her. Surely her tits are also pretty nice place to look at but let me tell you when you realize her butt is natural apart from her breasts you will understand what’s better.

    I was watching today some zoe saldana naked and thought you might want to look at them as well. See, I am not egoistic and thinking about people is my primary mission. So please be prepared as my review is going to start.

    Who would refuse from checking out catherine bach nude exposing her tits and ass on it? I think there is no such moron yet. Anyway, this girl has got some goodies that we will be very glad to stare at. And for now here is one quote describing her attitude to work in porn industry. “Making eye contact during rough sex is roughly the equivalent trying to read Fyodor Dostoyevsky on a rollercoaster.” I was laughing for like two minutes and couldn’t stop… oh man, I thought I will get a heart attack laughing that much. Who said blonds are stupid? She is so smart and very hilarious. Even Chris Rock couldn’t say better along with Kat Williams… for real. I have never made eye contact with my partner because it is not comfortable and second of all she always closes her eyes in the most of the time. But you should try it and then you will definitely change your imagination about porn industry.

    For the end I have saved some krista allen sex pics for you… Don’t thank me, my pleasure. What is good for you is good for me too so remember that.

    Nude celebrities have always been something that people want to look at and discuss. Rumors, gossips, sex tapes, all there are apply to that topic. But when we mention porn stars celebrities it becomes even more interesting. Let’s checkout katy mixon nude on that picture you can see and try to express our feedback on that count.

    zooey deschanel nude has got incredible hairs because this hottie knows what’s good for her and for men. Both sexes are crazy about this woman and her hairstyle too. Just think of ellen barkin nude standing in front of you and her tits are covered by her blond hairs. That is a special moment by the way, however it seems pretty unreal too.

    Moving next I would like to say how great and big lucy liu nude are. The size is just huge and they are very smooth. I wonder what is like to touch those babies and hold them in your hands. I bet it would be some special feeling that not every man can describe.

    Watching kristin cavallari nude is my second dirty wish because first one seems to be not that realistic as this one. I live in the real world and thus I should be glad with what I have. But don’t think that doesn’t spreads on you. Try to learn how to be happy with some little things you see every day.

    Do you like watching rebecca hall nude? If yes, then this is what we do. I am about to make this review with such illustrations you like and all I demand from your side is to be patient and very active on the comments.

    She is very funny person and I she has sense of humor in her blood. Despite the fact that her work demands some very dirty stuff I think deep inside she is very nice and kind. Many people can judge her for that work she does but let me tell you something. First of all, job is job and we all have different one. The fact that you couldn’t be a porn star for even one million dollars doesn’t mean the rest people couldn’t. This profession is very artistic and demands lots of things like looking good and being healthy. Try to realize that when you come from work and watch adrianne curry playboy in some porn this means she worked for you pleasure. So don’t be disrespectful to this job.

    Not many people know she is from Italian descent and that her last name was Masolli. By the way she changed that last name to alcohol drink Jameson.

    debby ryan naked ass is the best part of her body and I am really fond of it. If there was a chance for me to touch her butt for ten grands then I would give that kind amount with no back thoughts.

    If you look at this gorgeous photo of trachtenberg naked I think you will get something as a heart attack if you are 72 or something. That was a joke though. But if you are that old and interested in alyson michalka nude that means two things… First is that I’m very proud that old people are also like sometimes to surf the web is searches of sexy stuff. The other thing is that they can still get it up what can inspire youth like us if you know what I’m saying.

    Now let’s talk about something quite interesting that touches some moments like why you can see alice braga nude everywhere or how she became a porn star. I guess we need to refer to her parents because that’s where it should come from.

    Her father was a police officer so you probably think how it is possible for Jenny to become a member of porn industry. Well, don’t rush these things as I haven’t said anything yet about her mother. She was a showgirl in Las Vegas and right now you can understand from whom lily cole nude got this talent of performing in front of the crowd. Of course this is not the same I mean having sex for money and performing for money but there is something in common there.

    kari byron playboy is so damn elastic that I think a piece of rubber is nothing comparing to it.

    You know I was questioning myself today what is so special about watching female celebrities nude? What’s the difference if we stare on some unknown girl who has big boobs, nice butt and great body? The difference actually would be in the fact that photos of simple women that we don’t know is nothing comparing to for example leslie mann nude. That’s right today, today we are about to check chelsea handler nude and all of her goodies so why don’t you seat comfortable, relax and I will try to entertain you with this review.

    I know that might sounds weird but we haven’t talked about celebrity weight information ever. But today this is something that will be changed. When you look at jennette mccurdy hot you start to think this woman is very tall and thus her weight should be at least 140 lbs or something. But guess what? She is only 110 lbs. Isn’t that just incredible? Wow, she is so well shaped and light than if it wasn’t her height which is 5’6 I think she could be a very successful model. But being porn star is even better I guess.

    There is nothing bigger than mary steenburgen nude and if you don’t believe me then see for yourself. Of course they are fakes but that doesn’t bother me much because I am very flattered with the result.
