Great Show of Aloha

Although Sunday's massive search did not result in finding Laura, it elicited a cascade of aloha on her behalf. Gene Robinson and Texas Equusearch provided valuable specialized search technology and expertise. Dedicated supporters worked tirelessly making calls, sending e-mails, and distributing flyers to spread the word about the search. A wide array of community volunteers turned out for searches at 9 AM and 1:30 PM. They spent hours in the hot sun bushwhacking through harsh terrain in the hope of finding some sign of Laura. Off-duty firefighters and military personnel kindly lent their skills to the search. Local businesses generously donated food and supplies, including the Pukalani Starbucks, Flat Bread Pizza, and Home Depot. In the face of enormous challenges, the show of community spirit in honor of Laura has been heartening and inspiring. Mahalo nui loa to all who participated.

  1. I am having a Racquetball shootout TOMORROW in Albuquerque starting at 5 but get there when you can! Please call if you are at all interested. I have people looking for partners and equipment to share! All proceeds go to help find Laura.

    I also have window decals I am selling for a $5 minimum donation. Send me a self addressed stamped envelope (with the money) and I'll send you one. Or you can come to Riverpoint Sports and Wellness in Albuquerque Friday and get one there. I will also probably show up to the Las Cruces shootout in April with them.
