To close Sunshine Week, Hawaii’s oldest continuously active press club, the Big Island
Press Club, announced Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie as their 15th annual Lava Tube award winner last Friday. "Like the lava tube itself, the award recognizes the year’s most notable offense for keeping the public in the dark, " said the BIPC in a release. Gov. Abercrombie won this dubious distinction for his refusal to name his list of nominees to fill a state Supreme Court vacancy and emergency declaration to begin removing military ordnance with no notice to the public according to the BIPC.
