Wasn't it correct that PCC had to remove all his photo on the tour buses?

Is this correct?

What was his name?

The painted face drummer's name is Vili Fehoko. I love his appearance at UH games. It raises the excitement. Is he related to the Lisa Fehoko who is publicly campaigning for Envision Laie?

With regard to the expansion bringing in more people and more traffic...I want to say that the people and traffic are ALREADY here...just cramped up into small spaces i.e. houses meant as single family dwellings but partitioned into several units to house multiple families, related AND unrelated. We need expansion just to "breathe"! but more importantly to comply with "proper housing" laws??

Expand BYUH Campus so that the students living off-campus can move on-campus and free up those houses/units for non-students.(Agree!)

Expand residential zoning to allow for more housing for all non-student locals currently cramped into awkwardly partitioned units of houses.(Agree!)

"Affordable" housing??(Concerned! Hoping they'll truly be affordable! Or at least that an increase in the supply of housing can bring the cost of housing(rent) down "a little"??)

Increased # units + more traffic,= infrastructure needed, more taxes
more units = more people
more people = degradation of reefs due to sewage
more traffic = more stress
more people = higher prices for everything
more people = less affordable housing

An island has finite services/possibilities.
The only way to build more is vertical. Otherwise the more you build horizontally the more flooding you get. Oahu is maxed out now. Another 200,000 people there will tip it over the edge and the problems will far outweigh the benefits. Solution: the Big Island. That is where your growth will occur. Kauai is maxed out now in terms of traffic. Maui too. Molokai has some potential but lacks water. Only the Big island has enough land to sustain another 100,000 people.

This idiot claims to own 10,000 rentals so we should believe he is a GURU? He cannot afford a trip to Hawaii so he posts hundreds of stupid azz comments daily. Fck you LA queer.
