The County of Hawai'i has released its first Food Self-Sufficiency Baseline Study, a report which outlines the current state of food production on Hawai‘i Island. The report was prepared by Jeffrey Melrose and Dr. Donna Delparte of the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo’s Geography and Environmental Studies Department in response to recommendations contained in the 2010 County Agricultural Development Plan. It provides a summary of Hawai‘i Island’s food demand and compares that to locally produced food types. The study also conducted a detailed mapping effort to locate existing agricultural activity on the island as a 2012 baseline to document what crops we grow where and what resources and factors support farm activities around the island. This baseline study provides a summary of currently available data on a wide variety of food and farm related factors that will help the community gauge the current status of local food self reliance and to monitor changes over time. It is intended to help inform future discussions and improve the quality of the dialogue on these important issues. The report is the first of its kind in the state and also provides a template for other counties to consider the current state of their local food production capacity.

County of Hawaii A pair of supporting documents was also released with the baseline study. One is a list of 100 Things to Do to Make a Difference, recommendations to support progress towards increased food self-sufficiency on Hawai‘i Island. Collected during the preparation of the baseline study, the list points to the fact that food self-sufficiency is everyone’s kuleana and not just a matter of increasing local commercial food productivity. Food self-sufficiency will require fundamental rethinking about how we interact with the food that we eat and how we value the local economic and nutritional value of a locally produced diet. Also part of the study is a Food Self Sufficiency Scorecard, which points out some surprising statistics. For instance, virtually all of our milk is produced on Hawai'i Island, but almost none of our other dairy products – sour cream, butter, etc. – is from here. It also comes as no surprise that more than half of our fish is caught locally, but it may surprise some that less than 20 percent of the beef we consume here and virtually none of our poultry or eggs is produced here. We all know we have to commit to moving toward food self sufficiency. It is through studies like this that we will be able to good decisions that will lead us in that direction, and not just run around and talk about it. Mahalo, William P. Kenoi MAYOR

Home Ownership Matters!

An estimated 13,800 REALTORS® converged on the grounds of the Washington Monument on May 17 to make their voice heard on behalf of

homeowners, real estate investors, and those who aspire to homeownership. At the Rally to Protect the American Dream, REALTORS® from every state in the country joined invited members of Congress to demonstrate their commitment to preserving access to homeownership and robust real estate investment. This included over 50 REALTORS® from Hawaii.

“Realtors® know that homeownership is an investment in our collective futures, and weʼre

here today to protect the American Dream of homeownership,” said National Association of Realtors® President Moe Veissi, broker-owner of Veissi & Associates Inc., in Miami.

“Homeownership and investment in real estate impacts families, communities, small

businesses and the nationʼs economy in a very meaningful way. Today, weʼre proud to be showing the country that homeownership matters.”

In the current economic and political climate, REALTORS® are working to ensure that

people who want to own a home or invest in real estate and can responsibly afford to do so will continue to have the opportunity to do that. Toward that end, Realtors® are advocating better access to affordable financing, reform of the secondary mortgage market, improved liquidity in residential and commercial lending, and preservation of the tax benefits associated with homeownership.

The rally was part of NARʼs week-long Midyear Legislative Meetings, during which

REALTORS® and guests met with members of Congress, federal regulators and industry experts to address pressing real estate issues and public policies in support of private property rights, homeownership and housing issues.

Six alluring reasons to retire in

Kama`aina Insight . . . Renée H. Kraft

R(S), BA, AHWD, SFR Cell: (808) 345-2108 Office: (808) 331-3131 78-6831 Alii Dr. Ste. 163 Kailua-Kona, HI 96740

Hawaii ..... Kona Style

property taxes. These tax benefits increase as you advance in years. How great is that on your pocket book?


he Big Island has so much to offer. Whether you’re planning on moving here permanently or considering the Big Island as a part time residency, you’ll find everything you need here and more. I relocated from my hometown on Oahu almost 10 years ago and fell in love with the Kona lifestyle. The people are genuine and the landscape is breathtaking. Plus the town of Kailua-Kona has everything from gourmet restaurants and boutique shops to local plate lunch cafes and farmers markets.

4. Longer Life Span! It’s no surprise that the state of Hawaii has the longest average life span (Harvard University Study 2006-2008.) Studies show that Hawaiian residents have better diets, maintain healthful weights, and exercise more. If you feel like you want to be more active, Kona is the place for you. Many homes and condos located in KailuaKona and along the Kohala Coast offer amenities such as fitness clubs, community pools, and golf courses. Seriously, if golf is your game, the Kona Coast is for you!

1. Plenty of Fun Stuff to Do! The Kona Coast is all about getting out and exploring. You’ll find pristine beaches, an array of tasty cuisine, and fairways that are a golfers dream. For the more adventurous there’s scuba diving, sport and reef fishing, parasailing, and zip lines (yes retirees can do a zip line). Take up a new hobby and learn lauhala weaving, hula dancing, and how to play the ukulele. Relax with a good book under a coconut free tree.

5. Income Tax Exemptions! Seniors who live in Hawaii do not have to pay state income tax on social security, government pensions (including out-of-state), and military pensions. Additionally, if you are over 65 you are eligible for personal exemption on your state income tax return.

2. Amazing Weather! Growing into your retirement years can be physically tough. However, the mild climate on the Big Island can be very kind to some ailments associated with getting older. During the day temperatures range from the mid-‘70s to mid-‘80s while the nights can dip comfortably 10-15 degrees depending on the elevation you choose to live at. And you can’t shake a stick at the sunsets! 3. Low Property Taxes! For homeowners 60 years and older, additional tax exemptions are permitted on top of the State of Hawaii’s already low

6. Friends To Be Made! Kona has many clubs and social groups where you can meet new people. Embrace the culture and it will embrace you back. Get involved in the community and share your talents in writing, tennis, gardening, quilting, lei making, language, and more. Let me help you find your dream home. Please visit to register and search for properties on the Big Island. You’ll find fantastic mapping tools, loads of information, and if you create a login ID, you can keep notes on your favorite properties. The Big Island has a piece of paradise waiting for you.

Home Buyers Face Decisions that Affect

ailua-Kona, HI - Taking the step into home ownership is one of the most important financial decisions a person will make in their lifetime. There are many factors to consider when embarking on this venture. Literally hundreds of loan programs are available, and it is important to find the one that best fits your personal long-term goals.


First and foremost, you must have a mortgage consultant in your corner that is willing to take the time to know what your long-term goals are. Communication is the key factor here. Curious prospective home buyers sometimes turn to Internet-based services just to see what current interest rates are. But a faceless web site will not take the prospect’s future financial planning into consideration or guide the potential borrower through the many nuances of the loan process. When shopping for a home loan, be wary of web-based services that offer programs to reel prospects in with attractive rates that are based upon unrealistic time frames. If a lender is offering a terrific rate based on a 10-day lock-in period, it is unlikely that the potential home owner would actually be able to find their dream home, get through the negotiation process and win approval from a lender within such a short period of time. This is called shortpricing, and when it comes time to close the transaction, the rate that was originally offered is simply no longer available. As a result, the unfortunate prospect is bulldozed into a loan program with a higher interest rate.

Their Long-Term Financial Picture It is highly unlikely that a qualified loan originator whose business is based upon referrals will use unscrupulous tactics such as this to get new customers in the door! Once you have found a mortgage consultant that you feel comfortable working with, lay your goals out on the table because it will have a tremendous impact on choosing a loan program that meets your specific needs. One of the most important factors to consider is how long you wish to borrow the money for. For example, if you know you will only be in the home for five years, it wouldn’t make sense to opt for a 30-year loan program or pay points up front to secure a lower interest rate. You would not be in the home long enough to benefit from such action. Your mortgage consultant should be able to narrow down a selection of programs based on the information that you have provided, and present you with an easy-to-read spreadsheet that clearly defines viable options for your interest rate and amortization schedule, monthly payment and any potential savings you may realize by paying points up front. Moreover, a reputable loan originator will not hesitate to share this information with your tax consultant or financial planner so they may offer additional feedback on your behalf. Home ownership imparts a rewarding vehicle for building wealth and a strong financial future. The mortgage consultant that you choose should be there not only when your loan closes, but should also provide you with ongoing service to assist you in managing that debt over time.
