This posted on a forum 4 years ago when Andy Smith was appointed by lingle:
Amen to that! Garuda now plays rhythm guitar, and Andy Smith, a young guy who was last year's Republican candidate for State House from Hilo and who is now Gov. Lingle's liaison to the Big Island, is our star conga player. Young, mild-mannered Republican functionary by day, wild, conga-pounding kirtan guy by night. If only they knew.
If only they knew indeed!
Andy, the vegetarian, who is interested in The Absolute Truth and Love of God is known by Babhru das. Babhru knows the group quite intimately for someone who is supposedly an ex-member.
Mahaksa dasa (Siddha's follower in 30 year exile from SIF) appears to allude to Taylor Camp on Kauai if that is the park he is talking about at the end of the road. He also mentions the Boy Scout retreat which I have seen mentioned elsewhere. Does anyone know anything about this?
The boy scout camp retreat was another event worth mentioning, electric kirtanas, and another one quite a few years earlier (you may have been tryin to get to SA at the time) at a park at the end of the road in Kauai.
