She was Hawaii's golden girl after launched her political career with endorsements from Emily’s List, VoteVets.org and Sierra Club, but now that Democratic Rep.
Russell Roberts's insight:
It takes some courage to state an uncomfortable truth. Gabbard, veteran of the current turmoil in the Middle East, has expressed what many vets feel about radical Islam. That's going to cost her politically. The world seems powerless to stop the ISIS terrorists. Gabbard has warned us. Too bad the White House can't understand reality. Aloha, Russ

Go ahead given for Puuanahulu solar project.

Photovoltaic system will power water system.

Russell Roberts's insight:

Source:  West Hawaii Today.

Reporter:  Bret Yager.

 

Synopsis:

 

Puuanahulu residents are looking forward to reducing their monthly bills by installing a photovoltaic system to power their water supply.  The project was approved this week with the release of an environmental assessment that "found the project would not significantly impact the landscape."  The community-owned system serves 150 water meters using two wells that draw from 2,500 feet below the surface.  Rick Strojny, a member of the Na Puu Water, Inc. board of directors, tells reporter Bret Yager that it costs around $8 per 1,000 gallons to pump water from that depth.  It's the only water serving homes and several ranches in this arid area of Hawaii Island.  The solar array is planned for 1.75 acres of state land near the existing Puu Waawaa Ranch energy lab.  Strojny says, "We're hoping for 15 to 18 percent savings on electricity."  Aloha, Russ.
