World Terrorism Serpents - Be wary

By Glenn Mollette

My wife and I were walking an Appalachian path a few months back when a poisonous copperhead snake struck at my wife. The snake was big. My wife was carrying pepper spray and amazingly with one quick move sprayed that deadly serpent. The snake was stunned as we lunged forward to safety. We were so very lucky. Either one of us could have died or lost a limb if that poisonous serpent had been successful. Journalists and cartoonists in a French newsroom were not so lucky this week. They were totally caught off guard by striking terrorists that ended their unsuspecting lives.

The attack on a Paris, France magazine killing twelve people is chilling. We must not allow such a heinous event to freeze us and keep us from practicing freedom and eliminating terrorism.

Christians, Muslims, Jews, white people, black people, Americans, French and all must be freedom united.

ISIS, militant Islamists, Taliban and others are working to destroy our freedom of speech, religious freedom and equality. Sometimes we think we have problems in America. If we want to understand problems look at Syria and parts of Iraq or any other region that is ruled by militant religious extremism. Ten journalists and two police officers sacrificed their lives for freedom of speech in Paris.

The French magazine Charlie Hebdo was internationally known for its satirical cartoons that outraged many Muslims. Some of those militant Muslims retaliated by enacting a bloodbath.

On September 11, 2001 we watched thousands die horrifically in New York City at the hands of terrorists. We have watched or heard of the hundreds killed in Mumbai through various attacks. We have seen parts of videos of journalists and humanitarians beheaded by terrorists. In France we saw a helpless police officer executed by terrorists after they had executed an entire newsroom. The accounts go on and on. Evil exists in the world and is alive and well.

People across the planet must unite. Good people must stop fighting each other. We have problems in our country and it could be a lot worse if we do not work together. We have no problems like what we could have if we lost our freedom.

Americans must be strong. We must practice our faith boldly. Speech and freedom to express ourselves must not get quieter but louder. Police officers and the military need our full support. They have tough jobs. We need them to be as effective as possible.

Our job each day should be to do our part to keep our freedom. Treat each other kindly. Help each other. Practice the Golden Rule. Keep each other safe. Yet, unfortunately we have to live warily. Evil is a slithering serpent that might strike anyplace and anytime. Being caught off guard could be fatal.

Don't blame it on the grinch!

Much of the sand along Waikiki Beach has vanished just two and a half years after the completion of a $2.2 million replenishment project.

Now, erosion has exposed a large concrete slab at Kuhio Beach, a situation many locals call dangerous.

Gov. David Ige has submitted his first spending plan for the state three weeks after taking office. The $25.7 billion budget over the next two fiscal years largely maintains the status quo from Neil Abercrombie's previous administration.

However, the budget only balances out because of a $665 million projected carryover from the current fiscal year.

What do you think about the state's current financial picture? Are you optimistic, or will things only get worse?

The defense attorney for murder suspect Dale Rodriguez Jr. turned the tables in court Monday, saying his client was fearful of what victim Jesse Waikiki would do if he got up off the pavement.

Waikiki was killed last Tuesday morning with a piece of gym equipment after Rodriquez arrived at his fiancee's home and saw him inside.

Hidden costs continue to rise to the surface as Honolulu's rail project faces more challenges.

Meanwhile, there are also problems with construction that must be addressed by Kiewit Infrastructure West Co.
