WATER COMMISSION ACCUSED OF SKIRTING LAW DURING SITE VISITS BY BRET YAGER WEST HAWAII TODAY [email protected] The state Commission on Water Resource Management is being accused of violating the Sunshine Law during site visits to the Big Island in September and October. The Hawaii Leeward Planning Conference filed the Building a new life FIRE VICTIMS GET NEW HOME THROUGH HABITAT FOR HUMANITY BY CAROLYN LUCAS-ZENK WEST HAWAII TODAY [email protected] A Habitat for Humanity house is being built in Captain Cook for a family that has spent the last five years dealing with obstacles. In 2009, David Esperanza, a long-time Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources volunteer and hunter education program instructor, suffered a debilitating stroke in which he lost a great deal of mobility and now uses a wheelchair to get around. David and his wife, Sandy, were left with mounting medical bills and relying on family for help. Despite this tragedy, they remain optimistic and determined to take care of the unexpected health care costs with money saved for retirement and what they earned through landscaping and caretaking jobs. However, the burden became even greater in 2012, when an early morning fire destroyed the approximately 20-by-30-foot, two-story garage on Kahauloa Road David and Sandy called home. When Hawaii County Fire Department personnel arrived, they found the wooden structure engulfed in flames and collapsed, as well as the family and their neighbors trying their best to keep the blaze at bay. Two neighbors, one of whom was a retired firefighter, also got David safely out of the burning structure, which was not attached to the main house. Inspectors later revealed a faulty wire caused the fire. If it wasn’t for that fire and the kindness of others, Sandy said the family would not be building a Habitat home. Their neighbors were the ones who looked into Habitat for Humanity West Hawaii and encouraged the family to apply. They stressed it was an opportunity to pay forward the generosity, aloha and support David and Sandy have selflessly given to the community throughout the years. As helpers, Sandy admitted, it was initially difficult for them to ask for assistance. “For us, they were real live angels,” she added. For months, Sandy and David have shared the main house, a modest one-bedroom cottage owned by the couple’s daughter, Tyslynn Esperanza, who is a nurse’s assistant and performs hula at hotels. It’s been cramped 75¢ Jennifer Brooks said. “We haven’t heard from them yet, but we do know that the board’s position has been that these were quasi-judicial.” State Department of Land and Natural Resources spokeswoman Deborah Ward said the department is preparing a response that will be available next week. On Dec. 10, the water commission is slated to make a decision SEE LAW PAGE 5A June 27 flow front cools significantly complaint with the state Office of Information Practices late last month, saying the commission’s investigative meetings to county wells and national park sites should have been public. In its complaint, HLPC questions whether such investigatory functions are exempt from Sunshine Law requirements. “As the September 17 and October 9 site visits were to inform CWRM as it deliberates on the NPS Petition, these site visits were clearly ‘meetings’ under HRS 92-3,” the complaint states. “The meeting notice provided by CWRM indicated that these were not public meetings, which created confusion as to what rights the public were entitled to and what CWRM’s obligations and limitations were under the Sunshine Law. Moreover, there were several violations of the open meeting requirements during these site visits.” CWRM has until Nov. 10 to respond the the complaint and turn over the minutes and other documents related to the visits. “The main issue appears to be whether the board performed quasi-judicial functions during the visits,” OIP staff attorney ABOVE: Habitat for Humanity West Hawaii volunteer Clyde Nakashinn installs a sliding door at a Captain Cook house being built for the Esperanza family.

PHOTOS BY LAURA SHIMABUKU/SPECIAL TO WEST HAWAII TODAY BY TOM CALLIS STEPHENS MEDIA HAWAII The front of the June 27 lava flow, stalled for a week near Pahoa Village Road, might not move another inch after cooling significantly, according to a Hawaiian Volcano Observatory geologist. “That lower portion of the flow (below the Pahoa Cemetery) is very cool and it’s very unlikely that lava is now making its way into that part of the flow where it’s going to squirt out the leading edge,” said Steve Brantley, HVO acting scientist-in-charge. But Brantley cautioned that doesn’t mean nearby residents are safe since a breakout upslope could still overtake the flow’s front. When and where that would occur remains to be seen. Activity on the flow remained weak Wednesday with breakouts mostly occurring mauka of Cemetery Road. Brantley also noted it’s unclear if the lava tube just above that road will remain stable enough to continue feeding lava down slope without an uptick in activity. “Once that cools enough, then the lava won’t be able to make SEE LAVA PAGE 5A Makani: Wind kite not a hazard to aircraft BY BRET YAGER WEST HAWAII TODAY [email protected] A team of representatives from the research and development company Makani spent Wednesday evening in Waimea assuring pilots that an experimental wind project won’t interfere with flights. The Google-sponsored project aims to harness the winds of the Waimea plains to power an experimental kite capable of generating 600 kw of electricity, enough to power 300 homes. The kite will be located about 5 miles south of the Waimea Airport on Parker Ranch land, at about the 4,100 foot level.
