He mau polokalamu kula kauwela manuahi ke mālama ʻia ana i kēia kauwela.

ʻO ia aʻela kekahi poʻo nūhou o kēia lā, ka lā 19 o ʻApelila, he Pōʻakahi. Welina e nā makamaka heluhelu. ʻO Ke Aolama kēia a penei ka nūhou.

E mālama ʻia ana kekahi mau polokalamu kula kauwela e nā kula aupuni he 230 a ʻoi a puni kēia pae ʻāina nei. I mea ia e kōkua ai i nā haumāna ʻoiai he makahiki kula kūpikipikoʻō ka makahiki nei i hala ma muli o ka maʻi ahulau. Eia mai kekahi mau mea e mālama ʻia ana, ʻo nā papa maʻa mau no ka ʻai, ʻo ke kikowaena aʻo, ʻo ke kākoʻo no nā haumāna nele i ke kōkua kūikawā ʻole, ʻo ka polokalamu holo mīʻoi ma kekahi mau kumuhana, a me ka polokalamu hoʻomākaukau haumāna no ke kulanui. A no nā keiki e komo ana i ka papa māla aʻo, i komo ʻole i ke kula kamaliʻi, e mālama ʻia ana kekahi papa hoʻomākaukau. ʻO kekahi, e hiki ana i nā haumāna o ka papa kiʻekiʻe loa ke hoʻomau i ka hapahā ʻehā a i ke kauwela i mea e hoʻokō ai i nā ʻai e pono ai ka puka ʻana. A ʻo ia mau polokalamu, he manuahi nō.

Ua loaʻa maila ka poloka kokī ma Waimānalo. I ka mahina ʻo Pepeluali, ua hōʻike aku kekahi kanaka e noho ana ma laila no kona lohe ʻana i ka poloka kokī. Akā, i ka hele ʻana aku o nā luna nānā o ka ʻOihana Mahi ʻAi o Hawaiʻi i ia pō, ʻaʻohe wahi poloka i lohe ʻia a i loaʻa mai hoʻi. Ma hope mai, he ʻelima manawa o ia mau luna nānā i hele hou ai, a loaʻa mai nō nā poloka he ʻekolu a emi mai i kēlā me kēia manawa. A lohe ʻia nō hoʻi nā poloka kokī ma kekahi mau wahi e pili ana. A ʻāpono ʻia ka huli ʻana ma ia mau wahi pili, a ma ka mahina ʻo Malaki, loaʻa maila nā poloka kokī he 33. A ma kēia mahina nei ʻo ʻApelila, ua loaʻa hou maila he 18 i ka lā 9, a he 14 i ka lā 15. ʻO ka lua kēia o ka manawa i loaʻa mai ai ka poloka kokī ma Oʻahu nei. I ka mahina ʻo Iune o ka makahiki 2003, ua loaʻa maila ma Wahiawā. Akā, ua hoʻopau loa ʻia ma laila ma hope o nā makahiki ʻekolu.

Eia mai kā kākou ʻōlelo noʻeau,

ʻAʻohe hua o ka maiʻa i ka lā hoʻokahi.

He pane kēia i ke kanaka ahonui ʻole.
