Lucky for you a few neighbors are paying attention.

The new planning commission meeting date is Tuesday, May 23rd. @ 9am. Written testimony should be recieved by mail or email one day before the meeting. The meeting location is in room 2A-2B of the county building at 4444 Rice st., Lihue.

This post is a developing collection of Kilauea History that will a permanent home in the “history” section as it evolves.

First we have a priceless collection of four videos provided by local historian and scholar Gary Smith in collaboration and with the permission of the Kauai Historical Society.

Kauai Historical Society – Gary Smith – Kilauea III
Kauai Historical Society – Gary Smith – Kilauea IV

Next is an collaboration between Anaina Hou Community Park and patriarch of one Kilauea’s primary families, Jack Gushiken. Anaina Hou Community Park has a great website in addition to their great facility. One of the gems of the website is a  secti0n called “Anaina Hou, Yesterday and Today”. It includes the historical story telling of “uncle” Jack Gushiken. With permission from our neighbors at Anaina Hou we have attached links to several of those stories.

The following stories and anecdotes are written by Jack Gushiken and we hope there are more to come.
