    Will Small Business Gain From Corporate Tax Overhaul? - SBEC's Ray Keeting

    in Entrepreneur

    The Obama Administration and Congress have been at odds for months over a major overhaul of U.S. Corporate tax laws. Everyone seems to agree that something should be done but how will small business owners benefit? 


     Raymond J. Keating who serves as chief economist with the Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council (SBE Council), a nonpartisan, nonprofit small-business advocacy group, says corporate tax reform alone won't get the job done and instead insists it has to be comprehensive across the board tax reform. Keeting, who talks with host Kelly Scanlon, maintains small business owners who employee 55 percent of the private sector workforce and earn more than 60 percent of net business income shouldn't be ignored.


    Keeting writes, speaks and testifies on a wide range of issues affecting the entrepreneurial sector of the economy.

    National Park Funding & Centennial Challenge

    in Travel

    According to the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA), the spending bill for the National Park Service (NPS) approved by the House Appropriations' Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Subcommittee on June 10, 2015, would increase funds for the agency, but still not meet our national parks’ growing maintenance and operation needs. In addition, the bill includes several policy riders that could undermine critical protections for parks, including for clean water important to the health of park visitors, resources and wildlife.

    John Garder, NPCA's Director of Budget and Appropriations, talks with Big Blend Radio hosts Nancy J. Reid & Lisa D. Smith about the funding issues facing our parks, especially with the NPS Centennial occuring on August 25, 2016. Together with one million members and supporters, National Parks Conservation Association speaks for America’s national parks. Since its founding in 1919, NPCA has been an independent, nonpartisan voice working to strengthen and protect our nation’s natural, historical, and cultural heritage. Your voice is needed to help protect, connect, and restore these incredible places for present and future generations.

    Let's Celebrate Lei Day-May Day Hawai'i Style!

    in Spirituality

     In 2001, our Senator, Danial Kahikina Akaka, during a May 1 address, said, " 'May Day is Lei Day' in Hawaii. Lei Day is a nonpolitical and nonpartisan celebration. Indeed, its sole purpose is to engage in random acts of kindness and sharing, and to celebrate the Aloha spirit, that intangible, but palpable, essence which is best exemplified by the hospitality and inclusiveness exhibited by the Native Hawaiians -- Hawaii's indigenous peoples -- to all people of goodwill."


         A lei is not just flowers strung on a thread. A lei is a tangible representation of aloha in which symbols of that aloha are carefully sewn or woven together to create a gift. This gift tells a story of the relationship between the giver and the recipient. many things can make up a lei. One can string flowers, seeds, shells, or berries into a lei. One can weave vines and leaves into a lei. Once can weave words into a poem or song, which is then a lei. The ultimate expression of a lei is kamalei - the child which represents the intertwining of aloha between the parents.


         Today's program is our Lei Aloha to you for supporting Da Coconut Wireless and assisting us to Spread The Aloha around our World!  Hoihoi na Aloha Mele ... enjoy the great music!
