Hawaii Island GMO Moratorium Decision: Ashley Lukens

Ashley Lukens

It’s becoming a pattern anti-GMO activists don’t like. A county passes a GMO related law, only to have it overturned by a federal judge. In August, he made his decision regarding Kauai modified crops and pesticide law, and last week, for the Hawaii Island GMO ban. Meanwhile, Maui County’s ban is still in question and may get the same treatment. GMO opponents are continuing to work statewide and how their position may manifest with state agencies and  in the coming  legislative session is in the scopes. Ashley Lukens of the Hawaii Center for Food Safetyjoined the show with her perspective on what’s next.

There is a myth that we keep hearing… Hawaii residents are among the most generous and quick to spread charitable aloha. Well maybe not. According to a new WalletHub Charitable States study Hawaii isn’t in the top ten, and not in the next ten either. For a look at how the study was done and how Hawaii was ranked 30th, WalletHub spokesperson Jill Gonzalez joined the show via phone from her office in DC.

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Auditions: Cass Foster

Cass Foster

Upon its release, Edward Albee’s play “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” set off shock waves in the American theater world that are still being felt today. The play has been imitated so many times in other works that we may wonder what was so shocking to audiences more than fifty years ago. The play retains its power, though, and director Cass Foster is casting a new production for the Kauai Community Players. He’ll need two couples, and they’d better be ready for some on-stage fireworks. Cass joined the show via phone from Kaua‘i.
