So They Call It a Wind Farm

Dig the earth 10 to 20 feet deep, 40 feet in diameter, fill with concrete…expand the wharf so it can handle large equipment…plant 410 feet steel towers with large turbine in concrete, no need for water, no fertilizer, just wait to catch the wind…sell the energy to the electric company and get paid lots of cash. This is a wind farm.

I am Native Hawaiian – can I farm casinos on Native Hawaiian land? Build a concrete slab, put up a building filled with gaming equipment, open the doors for people coming to take a chance, and collect the cash.

Here’s my point — redefining farming for whatever the purpose; make it up as we go along (carnival farm, affordable housing farm, etc.)? How you figure?

Also, mahalo to the Molokai community who gave to the American Red Cross Hawaii Chapter for aid to the Japan earthquake and tsunami victims.  Mahalo to Friendly Market, the Molokai Veterans Alice Kono, Connie Hao, Ben Menesue, Wendel De Freitas, and  Noa Kaakimaka who in four hours collected $814 for the cause.
