A Fishing Moment and Competing with a Bear
Sep 3rd, 2017 by Aldouspi

Two Fishing Poems for you by Scott Harker

A Fishing Moment

by Scott Harker


        Fly floating downstream,
        Dark shadows darting in the deeper pools.

        The sun is high enough
        Over the ridge to the East,
        To touch the hands on the rod
        And melt them back to warmth.

        My mind is drifting, too,
        With the sounds of the rushing water,
        The pole jerks, a sudden strike,
        I breathe and prepare for the fight.

----Copyright 2006 Scott Harker----

THE PURSUIT OF FISH has been one of humankind's longest and most pleasurable tasks.

In the beginning, it was all about food. Today, for most of us, it is just a chance to be outdoors - where we can take the opportunity to pit our wits and skills against a cunning and all to often successful foe.

Of course, it is still great to cook and savor one's catch of the day - and to tell fishing tales around a campfire or a dining room table.

Young Grizzly Bear Fishing

Competing with a Bear

by Scott Harker


___________________________________________
        A man and a bear were out fishing,
        With growls and insults they were "dishing"
                Each other about
                Who could catch the most trout,
        Funny thing is, the man is now missing.

Hemingway on Fishing
Fishing Secrets of the Dead
All Fishermen Are Liars (John Gierach\'s Fly-fishing Library)

HEMINGWAY _ The first and only collection of the Nobel Prize-winning author’s writings on America's great passion—fishing—introduced and edited by Nick Lyons with a foreword by Jack Hemingway. From childhood on, Ernest Hemingway was a passionate fisherman. He fished the lakes and creeks near the family’s summer home at Walloon Lake, Michigan, and his first stories and pieces of journalism were often about his favorite sport.

***
FISHING SECRETS - Meredith Davies Hadaway's debut volume creates a watery world of birds and fishermen, a litany of voices, calls and noises, each examined, treasured, and embodied in the poems' precise lyricism. The secrets this book reveals are enduring, dark, and beautiful.

***
ALL FISHERMEN - This tribute to the elusive art and ineffable pleasure of fly-fishing shows us why life s most valuable lessons and some of its best experiences are found while fly-fishing. For John Gierach, the master of fly-fishing, fishing is always the answer even when it s not clear what the question is.

Hawaiian Literature – Writer Kirby Wright
Jun 21st, 2016 by Hawaii-Al

Hawaii
I really enjoy Hawaiian literature. So who is the best writer in Hawaii today, someone who would be considered a writer of literary works?

I am interested to know if someone with any native Hawaiian blood who is writing about the islands in a meaningful literary way. I know that publishers are trying to dictate what the Writers must write to increase sales, but is there anyone out there in Hawaii that truly cares for the people of Hawaii and is carrying out their stories? Such a writer or writers must be pretty well known in Hawaii if not elsewhere. I can not seem to find anything on the web, but I know you can help. Mahalo.

Here is my answer about the current state of Hawaiian Literature: The book critic at the Honolulu Advertiser, the largest daily newspaper in Honolulu, believes that the"best Hawaiian writer" today is Kirby Wright. And "Wright is absolutely Hawaii's best and most important fiction writer today." according to the Maui Weekly... and I can go with those accolades...

Wright peppers his work with authentic Hawaiian words and also uses the local creole called "pidgin English. One of his latest novels is set on the island of Molokai "This is something quite literary and yet lush with the atmosphere Hawaiian, with pages devoted to the narrator's inner world and a cool dream. This writer is also a poet and his poem "Aloha, Lili'uokalani" appeared next to the statue of the queen during the 100th anniversary of the fall of the monarchy staged by Dole and Thurston. Wright writes well about the Hawaiian people.


Books by Kirby Wright

    Punahou Blues

    Growing up in Honolulu isn't always easy for Jeff Gill. He gets into Punahou School but loses the girl of his dreams, gets pushed around by the school bully and sure isn't getting the grades his parents would like.

    Senior year brings some relief and incredibly things begin to work out.

    BEFORE THE CITY

    "I recognize Kirby Wright as one of my own people, the citizens of the Pacific Rim. His heart is in Hawaii and California, aina and querencia.

    His fresh new voice sings love and concern for the beings along the shores and in the parks and gardens-and in the cities." -Maxine Hong Kingston

    Moloka'i Nui Ahina, Summers on the Lonely Isle

    Julia Daniels, a Moloka'i pioneer woman of mixed blood, invites her grandsons Jeff and Ben to spend summers with her at her ranch on the east end. She shares the ranch with Chipper, an alcoholic war hero with a life estate bordering the swamp. The brothers roam a paradise of fishponds, waterfalls, pristine valleys, and mountains with herds of deer. Jeff meets the Kahuna Woman who freezes pictures of her enemies, the TS who seduces the Chief of Police, the man who refs cock fights in Kaunakakai, the sexy divorcee who lives in the Saddle Room, and the prodigal grandfather who returns to woo Julia.

    These characters help shape Jeff's sensibilities as he discovers the secrets of his grandmother's wild past in Honolulu and the intensity of her struggles on the Lonely Isle.

Hawaii and Broadband Service
Oct 31st, 2014 by Hawaii-Al

Hawaii and Broadband Service

Located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, Hawaii is the nation’s 50th state and the one set furthest away from any other.  However, just like the other states, Hawaii is set to see its broadband coverage reach new heights in the next few months and years.  In fact, the state has received over $ 35 million in grants from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in order to make sure that all citizens have access to affordable and dependable broadband coverage.  This is good news for a state that has double the broadband investment and connection costs thanks to its location and mountainous geography. 

Governor Neil Abercrombie has also been on the offensive in bringing internet to all his citizens.  The governor recently signed into law House Bill 1342, which is the first step in expanding broadband internet coverage in Hawaii.  With broadband coverage, businesses, organizations, collages, government and citizens will be able to transmit more data at higher speeds than many are capable of doing so now with a much slower system.  According to Governor Abercrombie, broadband is the key toward Hawaii’s economy in the coming years.  In order to make statewide broadband a reality, the house bill will exempt broadband infrastructure improvements from permitting requirements over the next five years.  In addition, telecommunication companies will be exempt from replacing utility poles when installing or improving telecommunication cables.  Finally, the Director of Commerce and Consumer Affairs will submit a report in five years reviewing those exemptions and making recommendations. 

In order to get the ball rolling, the state will also make use of the $ 36 million in federal funds for broadband internet expansion.  In addition to adding nearly 450 miles of broadband infrastructure, the money will also be used to greatly improve community centers where the public has access to computers and the internet.  Some of the funding will also go toward the University of Hawaii by helping connect the university along with community colleges, other campuses, public high schools and libraries throughout the state.  Overall, the money will help connect up to 380 community institutions which will allow 300 K-12 schools, 50 libraries, seven community colleges, 30 other institutions of higher learning and up to 500 additional anchor institutions.  In addition, the network will greatly improve public safety by improving the Hawaii state Civil Defense Agency’s statewide connectivity.  There will also be hundreds of miles of additional and new fiber laid and more than 1,000 miles of existing fiber incorporated to bring more affordable broadband service.  This move will bring better service to 400,000 households and 100,000 businesses by letting local internet service providers use the project’s open network.  Finally, the money will be used to build 50 new computer centers, allow for the renovation of another 12 library computer centers, community colleges and remote university educational centers.  There will also be a purchase of 700 new computers that will go into those new community computer centers that the public can use and enjoy.  This move will allow a new world to open to those who have been previously cut off thanks to new and better service than the state of Hawaii has seen before.
