Though calls for a public high school in Kihei are probably older than he is, state Representative Kaniela Ing, D–South Maui, got top billing in a Jan. 11 press release on the school’s long-awaited ground-breaking. “I am ecstatic to see hundreds of hours of tireless work by so many people, over so many years, finally […]
At a time when the right-wing in this nation gets energized from politicians who advocate border walls, another Middle Eastern ground invasion and the banning of Muslims from entering the U.S., left-wing candidates and legislators are trying to appeal to voters with a very different idea: debt-free college. Earlier this month, 10 legislators in 10 […]

To the squatter of South Maui: Shame on you for hiding behind the asinine law of “squatter rights.” How this “right” was passed by government officials is mind-boggling. You have no lease, refuse to pay rent and refuse to leave. You’re making it so my family (who HAVE a lease) cannot move into our new […]

Eh, crazy dolphin lady: you started coming around our beautiful South Maui bay. You go after the spinner dolphin pod, frantically swimming towards them, chasing them, trying to touch them and even hitch a ride by grabbing their dorsal fins. Seriously, you’re a menace. Dolphins are great ambassadors of love, but sometimes humans who lack of […]

This is a tough one. Kihei isn’t exactly a walkable town–sidewalks are rare and portions of South Kihei Road more closely resemble a street racing course than a local thoroughfare–and it’s pretty much the best definition of “urban sprawl” I’ve yet found in Hawaii. Indeed, much of the South Maui coast is hidden from view […]
This goes out to those six drunken jerks who were partying like college kids on a South Maui beach late one night. Not only did you make complete asses of yourselves, but you trashed the beach with your broken bottles and dumped charcoal. It’s too bad that some kid will come by and injure himself […]

Location: The Triangle, this is a term of endearment, and I think its short for a euphemism for Bermuda Triangle, because you may feel as though you were dropped into this mysterious zone after a few rounds in this area that is tightly packed with fun drinking and eating establishments. (AKA Kihei Kalama Village).
