Local League News - Big Island - Hilo

Hilo. In December we had a joint, East Hawaii and Kona meeting. Mary Anne Raywid gave an informative talk on the state of education in Hawaii.

Sue Irvine and Helene Hale testified during hearings concerning reapportionment. Their concerns had to do with the Canoe Districts proposed in the state plan. Sue Irvine and Julie Jacobsen spoke to the Hawaii Island Senior Institute on reapportionment: Sue on the state plan, and Julie on the county plan.

The Kona Branch has been active in the anti-gambling movement, as Marian Wilkins' report shows. They have also been active with the community in problems relating to the drug "ICE." They have members on the steering committee formed to fight this serious problem.

Both Hawaii League branches are going to make a concerted effort, in the coming year, to concentrate on educational issues, especially in the area of charter schools.
