Michael says…
Brittany is the first in our family to be so close to a college degree and she plans to become a surgeon. I (dad) recently bought her a car for her California studies but within a week we totaled it going 20mph on icy roads. I would like to get her a vehicle so she can obtain employment while in California and in College.

She has an excellent GPA and has recieved scolarship moneys for her tuition. She will be a Jr. next semester. Currently she is enrolled in University of Hawaii and taking online classes here in CA.

I would like to keep this a surprise.

The Hale family greatly appreciates any help in Brittany`s goals of becoming a Dr.

Help Set the Record Straight on the Waimea Trails & Greenway

The Waimea Trails and Greenways project is a planned 5 mile stream side trail through the heart of Waimea. Through a series of community work days, there is now a 1 mile section open for use and the community has been coming out to enjoy the trail. A new Walking School Bus has started that helps children from public housing walk to school safely along the trail. Professionals use the trail to ride their bike to work or go for a run during lunch time. Families are walking dogs together and children are discovering the wonders of the Waikoloa Stream banks. This trail is a wonderful template for trails in other Big Island communities.

Over the past year, the project has gone through an Environmental Assessment to become eligible for federal funds to complete the entire 5 mile section. However, recent effort to stop the trail by a few people have unfortunately sent the wrong message to decision makers in Honolulu over the community’s desire for this trail, even though the Waimea community has been advocating for this trail for the last 16 years.

You can help to set the record straight.

Please send an email to Pat Phung at: pat.phung expressing your support for the Waimea Trail and Greenway project.

Once the trail project is approved, there will be a meeting to go over the design details of the trail. That will be the appropriate time to discuss things like preserving trees, costs for bridges and options to pave or leave the trail natural surface. Your support is critically needed to ensure we can move forward on this important project.

Mahalo for your support.

Dear, Chairman Aila –

I am a member of PATH and I support the DLNR’s preservation of ancient and historic as well as the establishment of new trails on Hawaii Island. Too many of our beloved trails have been destroyed or closed in recent years, at a great price to environmental sustainability, cultural understanding and quality of life.

We urge the DLNR to take swift action to provide the State Historic Preservation Division with the resources it needs to fully meet its obligations under the National Historic Preservation Act. We are aware Hawaii is in the middle of a two-year probationary period and we feel this is a critical wake-up call for all of us.

We also need a full inventory of ancient and historic trails prior
to 1892 so we may be more aware of these corridors and work together, both public and private sector stakeholders, to preserve them where possible or mitigate destruction with meaningful plans that establish a similar path of travel the trails once provided.

Finally, we strongly support responsible public access to trails and urge the DLNR to establish a hiking license program, similar to the hunting license program currently in place. Such a program can become a building block to responsible public access to our state trail system.

Thank you for the opportunity to share my comments with you.

Thank You,

Safe Routes to School in Kona & Hamakua!

The Honoka’a Elementary, Honaunau and Kealakehe Elementary school communities have started their own Safe Routes to School Programs! This represents over 1,500 students and their families. PATH will be working with these schools over the next several months to improve traffic safety and find ways for more students to walk or bike to school safely. If you are interested in getting involved in these exciting programs, please email Laura at laura.

MORE Than Sport to Help PATH, Kona Kids

The Big Island left a big impression on professional triathlete Chris Lieto during he and his family’s 8 month stay this past Winter and Spring. So much so, that when the Lieto family returns to Kona in September it will be for good – and in more ways than one. Lieto and his family are putting down roots but also putting together an incredible fundraising effort with More Than Sport to raise money for three important Kona charities: the YMCA, Kona Hospital and PATH!

Chris will be joined by 14 Big Island Ironman athletes who are racing and raising money for these Kona charities too!

You can be a part of this exciting effort in so many ways!
