Aloha, Friends!
Our wonderful island is focusing on keeping safe during the Coronavirus outbreak. COVID-19 is impacting many of our local businesses, including KONAWEB, but we are happy to be onboard with the required preventive measures. We will not be charging our advertisers until personal movement and travel are deemed safe.
On June 25, 2020, a statewide order from Governor Ige states that you must self-quarantine for 14 days upon arriving in Hawai'i. Beginning September 1, individuals with a valid negative test up to 72 hours prior to their trip will be exempt from the quarantine.
Be aware that others on your flight may not have opted to test early and may be infected.

Unsafe behavior may be reported to the DLNR at (808) 643-3567 or the COVID Hotline at (808) 935-0031.
We know that many of you are "addicted" to the KONAWEB live webcam at Kailua Bay, and use the Big Island Forum for current info. We will keep them up and running for you! The popular Big Island Calendar of Events will be on hold through August, at least.
Keep Hawai'i in your hearts, and we will LOVE to see you when the time is right!   -Konabob and Shirley
Those of you who are in a position to do so, may to help keep KONAWEB online.

What to know

In response to 144282: Just moved to Holualoa, posted by Steve KB on Friday, 17 July 2020, at 11:03 a.m.

Aloha, Steve, and congrats on your move.
I can’t answer all your questions but...
When we got a PO Box years ago, we didn’t have a Hawaii ID, so you should be good there. Although the Kailua Post Office is only around 15 minutes away with good traffic on Hualalai Road, you could (almost) walk to the Holualoa PO if not for having to walk back uphill (I know the tenant who lived there before. I learned a bit about herding cattle out of the way in the process). PO Boxes weren’t hard to get back then (2013) but I know there was a waiting list when surrendered ours and moved back to Wis.
As for the geckoes, trapping will be futile in all likelihood - too many. Besides, they’re considered good luck and are ‘mostly’ welcomed in houses. Nobody we know with cats has ever expressed trouble as you described. There are good veterinarians nearby that can give you advice.
Anything else you need to know will come to you - on island time. The “coconut wireless” will do the job - and Konaweb is invaluable.
