    Please join us in welcoming Dr. Svetlana Shchedrina to East Hawaii. Shchedrina will graduate from the Hawaii Island Family Residency Program in June. Hilo Medical Center, East Hawaii Independent Physicians Association, the Hilo Medical Center Foundation and local businesses all worked together to create Community First’s New Physician Subsidy program. Health insurers Hawaii Medical Service Association and University Health Alliance also provided substantial support. This spirit of collaboration is what our community needs to solve the health care problems we face.

    WASHINGTON — Having bestowed the presidency on a candidate who described their country as a “hellhole” besieged by multitudes trying to get into it, Americans need an antidote for social hypochondria. Fortunately, one has arrived from Don Boudreaux, an economist at George Mason University’s Mercatus Center and proprietor of the indispensable blog Cafe Hayek.

    Last month, NASA’s Cassini spacecraft went where nothing made by humans had ever gone before — it successfully navigated a path between Saturn and its rings and survived. Cassini also beamed back pictures and other essential data as it maneuvered the 1,500-mile-wide space between the solar system’s second largest planet and its icy rings.

    On Sunday, France will hold its presidential runoff. Most observers expect Emmanuel Macron, a centrist, to defeat Marine Le Pen, the white nationalist — please, let’s stop dignifying this stuff by calling it “populism.” And I’m pretty sure that Times rules allow me to state directly that I very much hope the conventional wisdom is right. A Le Pen victory would be a disaster for Europe and the world.

    In 2010, after a Democratic-controlled Congress passed and President Barack Obama signed the Affordable Care Act, Republicans denounced what came to be known as Obamacare with critiques that were often borne out. Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., for one, has long had on his website a statement ripping the law because it was “passed on a partisan vote with the rationale that we would have to pass it to find out what was in it. Now that the bill is law, the American people are finding out that what’s in it is completely contrary to what they were promised.”

    Americans are politically divided and riven by cultural conflicts that are enough to make them forget they’re all part of one people. But when it comes to nonhuman creatures, the divisions melt away. In red states and blue states alike, attitudes at the dog park, the pet supply shop or the aquarium tend to be unified — and passionate.

    North Korea presents what is perhaps America’s most dangerous and urgent dilemma at the moment. So what should the Trump administration do?

    WASHINGTON — It is urgent for Americans to think and speak clearly about Donald Trump’s inability to do either. This seems to be not a mere disinclination but a disability. It is not merely the result of intellectual sloth but of an untrained mind bereft of information and married to stratospheric self-confidence.
