Intentional Chaos

Serving the needs of the unsheltered during a pandemic is said to be within the purview of the Maui County Civil Defense Agency and The Department of Health.

Maui County Shenanigans Capture National Attention

RE: Maui County Council Early Announcements, Questionable Press Release, Sunshine Law, Inauguration Interruptions The new year of 2017 is starting out mean. The January 2nd Maui County Council inauguration ceremony appears to be an invitation to test truth and transparency rather than elected candidate celebration. Premature Council Chair declarations and recent staff dismissals has raised […]

Maui Activists Set Stewardship Standard

More hotels, urban sprawl, tourist traffic, new malls, and dust. This is what the nay sayers rant about the future for this tiny isle. On the contrary, Maui folk are shaping its future with community action. With the lead agriculture of sugar production over, 36,000 acres left behind are argued over in a panicked tone. […]
