Did you know that Kauai has three national wildlife refuges? The Kilauea Point, Hanalei, and Hule'ia NWR's invite you to experience National Wildlife Refuge Week beginning October 14. Here is the week long schedule of events.

Thank you +Linda Sherman for this great post by +Mack Collier. As I continue to slog to find relevant weekly topics that will prove of interest to visitors to Kauai Hawaii. I oft wonder is there a mathematical algo that will see my posts even if there are few eyes finding them. Now there is hope and it is inspirational.

While we in the US are encumbered with political reports ad nauseum, what is playing out behind the scene in the most populated country on the planet can only be described as intriguing. The Chinese are preparing for a new regime. But first they must clean up the messy affairs of Bo Xilai a former rising political star in China that was arrested in April for crimes that only now have been announced. Bo Xilai, like most of the 'Princelings' in China used his political powers to extort, bully and cheat his way to mega riches on a salary of 15000 USD per annum. It appears that the Politburo will be throwing the book at him. What message is the new regime trying to send to the rank and file in a country that is experiencing  economic slowdown?

Ho'opi'i Falls in Wailua earlier this year shows plenty of water despite a growing trend in Hawaii and globally. In the past 10 years rainfall totals are down by 23% at Princeville weather station when compared to their 94 year history of precipitation data. The Poipu Station (over by the Pointe at Poipu) has seen a 20% decrease when compared to its 60+ years history of recorded data.
The news today that Rainbow Falls in Hilo has dried up speaks to the alarming drought trend that started a few years ago on the southern portion of the State.

Can we afford NOT to increase our efforts to promote wind and solar over fossil fuels? Living on an island where we see in real time increased beach erosion due to higher ocean levels, storms more fierce than in previous years. Droughts across the state of Hawaii that we rarely experienced in the past thirty years of living here as an agronomist and now as a rancher.

If only renewable sources of energy could receive a significant portion of the fossil fuel subsidy.

While my wife was dealing with her breast cancer she had Pearl, a part Maltese pound puppy that was instrumental in her positive attitude while she dealt with daily doses of drug combinations that only a chemist could pronounce. Thank you Pearl

Hey Ben, I was taught that more roads meant more cars and more congestion, just visit Phoenix. The whole idea of rail transit is to move people in a cleaner more efficient mode. Lastly, where is the money going to come from? Can't swap rail monies for new road projects. The Feds wouldn't take to kindly to that.

I love their hamburgers, they are the best on the island bar none. Try their tempura fried dill pickles with the burger. You will be a convert. Tortilla Republic is one of our top restaurants in Poipu. We recently wrote a post on our website. We always recommend this eatery to guests at our vacation rentals and we have always heard "Thank You" for the recommendation.

My favorite is ... Belgian chocolate and the Salt Pond gelati. I love the way the Salt Pond gelato plays in my palate after a meal. I count myself as one of the fortunate firsts who have tasted Papalani Gelato's signature creation for Tortilla Republic Grill and Margarita Bar (located in Kukuiula Village). A Mexican chocolate gelato with a mild chili pepper fusion that warms the back of your throat and takes the chocolate notes to a new plateau.
