On Wed. Jan. 11 I drove up to the Hawaiian Acres Community Center to interview local activists and former Hawaii County Council members, Bob and Julie Jacobson. We talked about their careers, which have been devoted to others, Bob as a nurse and Julie as a teacher with the hearing impaired and other challenged students, and as public servants. Now they have concerns about older family members, and they are growing tea, a useful crop and, as Bob explains, a good way to maintain the health of the tropical forest on their property.
Bob and Julie are members of the Green Party and ran and held office as Greens. The Green Party is very much alive, they point out, and they are still involved, but they also want young people now to step up and join and become active Greens.
Anyone interested in further information about the Green Party or who wants to join the Green Party can contact Bob or Julie at (808) 966-8831.
A word about the vid: it's the best I can do right now with what I have technically available. Since this really is a terrific interview, I hope readers will take the time to watch it.
