I find it rather amazing that on the same day we are told the Superferry will shut down because it has failed to complete the environmental paperwork, we learn that the Navy will not even have to pay a fine for dumping 7,000 gallons of raw sewage onto the reef after it was rammed by the USS Port Royal.

Paul: I agree. Since when did humans fall from 1st place to a distant 3rd after whales and dolphins, in the food chain?

No, no Dargent77! It's not about whales and/or dolphins. It's all about money and competition. I wish we could find an investigative reporter to follow the money trail to these environmentalist. Me thinks, it would lead back to Inter-Island carriers, Matson, Young Brothers, the airlines, rental car agencies, etc. I seriously doubt if any of the enviromental clubs or groups have the money to finance these ongoing battles.

I guess the homeless in Wahiawa that were trespassing on government property have to find somewhere else to go. Moving them around is not really the solution. We continue to try and fix the symptoms but never really address the issue. What ever happened to the temporary housing we had in Haleiwa.(Weinberg village)

The feeling most folks have about the loss of the ferry is sadness.
Neighbor Isle families are now much farther apart from their Oahu kin.
The people need to bing the Government to heel.
In a growing depression we are sending the signal to business that we don,t want investment in Hawaii.

I'm guessing that many homeless, not just in Wahiawa, but other Oahu areas, are either drug users, drug dealers, or one of a variety of criminals. They are where they are because they are near their supply of either drugs to buy, drugs to sell, or victims to perform criminal acts upon. Don't get me wrong! I'm sure some folks are homeless due to circumstances beyond their control, and are working to rectify their problems. However, many, many are homesless as a matter of choice. Those folks I have no sympathy for - at all! The government needs to come up with a way to separate the various classes of homeless, help who wants help and dispose of those that don't, ie, work camps or prisons.
