My question i submitted to the mayor:
KHSC is one of the most utilized parks in the state.
What is being done to improve the range, and in addition, what is being done to expand ranges to other areas on the island?

Emergency situation, so they will expedite process and not use usual permitting

To open as quickly as possible, so people wil not go and shoot on public and private property

Will get permits, but can work with authorization
Plan is to get written emergency authorization tomorrow

You better get the chance to talk to her and give her some input; knudnuts is like a vulture that goes in when everyone isn't looking so he can try and manipulate their minds before anyone gets a chance to do so.

Not Knudsen
Unkle from the range
Title: Re: Just arrived at kaiser high mayor's forum
Post by: macsak on December 10, 2013, 07:43:57 PM

Hopefully the suggestion for moving the shooting positions back will not only cut costs, but expedite the process.

I don't get why HPD won't release the details of the case; maybe its because they know knudnuts is full of shit, and don't want to release that info to the public because he would get crucified.

I am thinking the benches cannot be moved back because it would reduce space behind the bench for people to walk
Plus that does not take into account people who shoot standing
I guess they could shoot by the benches like they do now

Hpd cannot comment on open cases
It's a rule
Mayor said they will release info when they can
I get no feeling that they are hiding anything

cannot be done
removal or moving of dirt brings into play all kinds of contamination issues

i left in a good mood after talking with the parks director and the mayor
i didn't want to ruin it by talking with skeletor
not going to change his mind by "educating" him
plus, i don't think he would admit if he is monitoring 2aHI

That's a very interesting statement as my commercial efforts in the past to either partner or contribute either monetarily or infrastructure were not just rebuffed, but insulted.  Please send me contact info if you have it.

You were looking particularly fetching in that cute UH shirt.
 Didn't even know you were there until you walked up behind me. What were you clinging to the ceiling like spiderman? Glad Knudsen was late, it was nice to hear that the parks director thought we were handling this the right way. Seemed to be very positive.

Thanks for all the personal time and hard work you devoted to this initiative, macsak.

Your efforts are truly remarkable, and give real meaning to that idiom, "actions speak louder than words."

Well done, sir... well done!  :worship:

I will do my best to show up to help with the KHSC cleanup/renovation effort.

this is for all of us
but thank you for your support
i couldn't do this without all of your help

our team is shaping up
i think we have a dozen coordinators
