Business By Tom Yamachika / Tax Foundation of Hawaii | Monday, June 10, 2019, 12:05 a.m. Share this story The Hawaii State Tax Watch Doggie’s son has come home from school, and today he has a few more questions than usual. Q. Dad! What’s a general ledger? ADVERTISING A. Grrr…I’m trying to write an article here. Why don’t you ask Mom? Q. She just chased me out of the kitchen. A. Oh? OK then.

“I can’t stop what has begun.” Those are the chilling words in the final entry in the online journal believed to be that of Sol Pais, the Florida teen who became the subject of a massive manhunt after traveling to Colorado and buying a weapon just days before the 20th anniversary of the Columbine High School tragedy. Officials say the 18-year-old, who was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound on Wednesday morning near the Echo Lake Lodge at the base of Mount Evans in Clear Creek County, was reportedly obsessed with the 1999 Columbine High School massacre and kept a dark journal where she drew pictures of machine guns and described feeling dead inside and lost in the world.
