Sen. Brian Emanuel Schatz
June 27, 2013
WASHINGTON—Today, Senator Brian Schatz joined Senators Reed, Hagan, Franken, Harkin, Warren, and Stabenow, among others, in taking action to prevent student loan interest rates from doubling on July 1st. The Keep Student Loans Affordable Act, in which Senator Schatz is an original co-sponsor, would extend current student loan interest rates for a year so that students do not face the costly burden of Congress’ inaction. Senator Schatz recently joined Senator Elizabeth Warren in supporting legislation that would allow students to pay the same low interest rates on their student loans that the government offers to big banks. Without today’s legislation, student loan interest rates would double, causing students to pay 9 times more in interest rates than the banks on Wall Street that caused the economic crisis.
“Students across the nation are struggling, and Congress has a responsibility to act on their behalf,” said Senator Brian Schatz. “This bill would extend and fully pay for an additional year of the current 3.4 percent interest rate on student loan rates, set to double on July 1st. I am committed to ensuring that students do not pay the price of congressional inaction, and that is why this temporary fix is so important. But we must also take the next step and come up with a real solution to reduce the cost of higher education and keep student loan rates low permanently. The average Hawaii student graduates with more than $23,000 in student loans. We cannot allow our students to enter the workforce drowning in debt. I call on my Senate colleagues to pass this important fix today and to continue working on reforms to protect our students and keep college within reach for all.”

Hawaii BioEnergy to get $5M federal grant for Kauai biofuels project
August 1, 2013
Hawaii BioEnergy LLC is getting $5 million from the U.S. Department of Energy for a Kauai-based biofuels energy project that will produce algae oil through a photosynthetic open pond system, the DOE said Thursday.
The project aims to demonstrate pre-processing technologies that reduce energy use and the overall cost of extracting lipids and producing fuel intermediates.
The funding, which also went to projects in California and New Mexico, is part of the Energy Department’s effort to break down technical barriers and accelerate the development of sustainable, affordable algae biofuels.
It says that the projects should help boost the productivity of sustainable algae, while cutting capital and operating costs of commercial-scale production.
U.S. Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, a member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, praised the Energy Department’s announcement, which was made at its Biomass 2013 annual conference.
Encourage people in your church to vote. With poor participation in the voting process by the average member, the voice of Christian culture is not very strong. Need to encourage every one in your church to simply go vote. A simple way to do that is to place a short announcement in your church bulletin. People need to be encouraged to vote for governor, senator, congress in the upcoming congressional elections. Copy and send to your church secretary now.

When we see the good that results from applying God's principles, and the horror that results from rejecting them, doesn't it seem cruel and irresponsible to keep Jesus teachings about truth, love and compassion to ourselves? At very least, we should vote to keep OUT of office those who attempt to oppose God's authority.
