Exhibits
Exhibit 1
Description:
REASON FOR BROADCAST SILENCE

KAHU HAS BEEN EXPERIENCING A LACK OF FUNDING DUE A RECENT ECONOMIC DOWN TURN IN THE SOUTHERN REGION OF HAWAII ISLAND. BUSINESSES DO NOT WANT TO INVEST BECAUSE LEGALLY WE CAN'T 'SELL' THEIR PRODUCT AND THEY CAN'T AFFORD TO GIVE MONEY AWAY. AND, SINCE WE DON'T HAVE A 501(C)3 AS OF YET, GRANTS AND TAX INCENTIVES FOR DONORS ARE FEW AND FAR BETWEEN. WITH THAT SAID, WITH ALL OTHER VENDORS HANGING ON, OUR ELECTRIC COMPANY COULD NO LONGER KEEP THE POWER ON WITHOUT A SUBSTANTIAL PAYMENT. WE ARE SELLING OFF EQUIPMENT NOT IN USE TO HELP, BUT IT WAS NOT FAST ENOUGH. THE POWER HAS BEEN OFF SINCE 4/17/13.
