this is a bunch of lies they not worried about the whales or enviroment. it just a not in my back yard racist crap. the people of maui think they own the island of maui. the island of maui should pay for every day the super ferry cannot run to compensate super ferry lost for not operating. the governor and law makers did pass the law to allow the superferry to run so you got a judge that overruled the governor and law makers and that is also crap. super ferry should sue the local goverment of maui for lost due to not operating.

Governor tried to sneak this bill by to pay off poltical contributors. She is just a wretched governor. Will the tax payer survive their own government?

Too bad the Supreme Court is allowing individuals who recently moved from the Mainland to shut down something the majority of the population wants. These so called "environmentalists" are against any form of progress. They are always the same handful of people who show up at community meetings and get their faces on the news. They simply DO NOT represent the majority of our citizens. If you want the Superferry to operate then you need to let your elected officials know. Democracy is supposed to be about community involvement and community desires being what carries the day. Don't let a few people with too much time on their hands and who oppose most everything negatively influence our lives.

The Superferry is a wonderful alternative for inter island travel. Thats the problem, entrenched service providers consider a threat to the monopoly of inter island service(where do you think all the money comes from for the "enviromental" lawyers).
Also the other problem, is that the Superferry trusted Lingle and her group of lawmakers to "backdoor" the ferry without adressing existing enviromental laws. Just get the EIS done and settle the issue once and for all, and hope that the Superferry will still be here

Mr. Lingle (looks) is another failure to the political system! What was once a promising political career has now turned into a farce! Who's worse, Lingle or Bush? Partners in crime!

Great, a few hundred people out of jobs in today's economy. They should all go and camp at the sierra clubs headquarters if they can't afford to pay rent. What is the big picture here?

All the petuly smelling Hippy Peace nicks left over from the 60's are dancing the Haiku shuffle. Their certainly not at work! Lingle put your stomping boots on and do some stomping.
