Superferry to be chronicled on Town Square, Thursday 3/26, 5-6 p.m.
by Larry Geller
Host Beth-Ann Kozlovich will give listeners the chance to call in and speak with guests State Senator Gary Hooser, Irene Bowie from Maui Tomorrow, and Michael Formby from the Hawaii State Department of Transportation—on KIPO, 89.3 FM, on Thursday, March 26, 2009, from 5-6 p.m. The station can be heard on other frequencies depending on where you are, and it streams from hawaiipublicradio.org.
If you want to listen to the stream, tune in early to make sure one of the two streams works for you.
The phone lines are sure to be crowded, so don’t wait to the end of the show to place your call. The number is announced throughout the program, but you can mark down 941-3689 or 1 877 941-3689 for a head start.
Be sure to ask Irene Bowie how many whales her company Pacific Whale Foundation has hit. It has been fined $17,000 and killed a whale in 2006. Around 5 whales are hit each year of Maui - mostly by whale watch boats like Pacific Whale Foundation. Superferry hit none, but her comapany has hit quite a few. We should do an EIS on whale watch industry and maybe close it down until it is complete.
From Maui Tomorrow website:
Irene Bowie, originally from Los Angeles, California, is a 30-year resident of Maui. Irene served as Vice President of the Maui chapter of the American Cetacean Society in the late 1970's and was a founding member, in 1980, of Pacific Whale Foundation. She has been involved with a number of environmental organizations and issues in Hawai‘i over the years.
From Zooom info:
"Sam Ahia is one of Hawaii's jazz greats," says Irene Bowie, Managing Director at Pacific Whale Foundation and an enthusiastic jazz fan.
From Lahaina news:
LAHAINA >> Pacific Whale Foundation officials said the first humpback whales of the season have been seen by a Maui couple.
"It's a little bit earlier than normal," said foundation managing director Irene Bowie.
Bowie said foundation officials usually expect the first humpback whales toward the end of October.
Three humpback whales were swimming southeast in waters off Kaanapali about 7:30 a.m. yesterday morning, said Earl Smith, a resident of the Maui Kai Condominium Resort.
Yea, she has nothing to do with PWF. Nice one. Typical of the anti superferry crowd. No facts, just BS
