A “shark sighted” sign posted by the state Department of Land and Natural Resources near the north end of Polihale was still standing there Sept. 3, the day after Labor Day. This was near the spot a man disappeared while swimming 10 feet from the shorebreak July 23. At that time, the DLNR closed the beach after spotting several sharks near the shore during rescue efforts. Photo by Léo Azambuja

‘Ai a manō, ʻaʻohe nāna i kumu pali.

“When the shark eats, he never troubles to look toward the foot of the cliff.”

Said of a person who eats voraciously with no thought of those who provided the food, shows no appreciation for what has been done for him, nor has a care for the morrow.
