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.

In response to 144292: Lettuce, posted by Janna L on Sunday, 19 July 2020, at 5:26 p.m.

For a few years I somewhat successfully grew Anuenue lettuce here in my garden near the Kona Outdoor Circle, 200 ft elevation. After a few unpleasant discoveries with slugs and snails and reading of the rat lungworm issues I decided it was just too risky and frankly too much work for the results. The butterhead lettuce grown hydroponically outdoors on Maui, available at Costco is very good.

BTW, what a trooper that Shirley is, getting you take-out breakfast from the Pine Tree while you and I waited to renew our drivers licenses. Yum! I'm hopeful that the agency finds inspiration to change the rules so that folks my age wont have to repeat that trial every two years. Sigh!
