    Does this guy Joshua Kaahu have family in Pahoa? The people who run Giovannis Shrimp Place in Pahoa has the same last name and the guy who works there looks like Joshua Kaahu. I am thinkng they are brothers. Giovannis Shrimp is from North Shore Oahu and they say this guy is from Honolulu. Pahoa has enough problems at it is. I am born and raised here and it makes me sad everytime I hear something negative happening in Pahoa.
