WHAT: In a joint effort to address concerns of Big Island residents, State Senate and House lawmakers will hold more "Legislators Listen" community meetings in Hilo, Kea'au, Pahoa, Pahala and Hawaiian Ocean View Estates (HOVE). Previous meetings were held Feb. 23 in Laupahoehoe, Honoka'a, Waimea, North Kohala, Waikoloa and Kealakekua.
