Full story: Honolulu Star-Bulletin

I commend the community spirit that is rising to the occasion of celebrating the upcoming Fourth of July holiday, but ask you to consider how you spend the product of all this good will.

The biggest problems with the Superferry
was that it would never have been profitable. HSF officials said it themselves.

Those Were The Days"

by Lee Adams and Charles Strouse

Boy, the way Glenn Miller played. Songs that made the Hit Parade.

Guys like us, we had it made. Those were the days.

Didn't need no welfare state. Everybody pulled his weight.

Gee, our old LaSalle ran great. Those were the days.

And you know who you were then. Girls were girls and men were men.

Mister, we could use a man like Herbert Hoover again.

People seemed to be content. Fifty dollars paid the rent.

Freaks were in a circus tent. Those were the days.

Take a little Sunday spin, go to watch the Dodgers win.

Have yourself a dandy day that cost you under a fin.

Hair was short and skirts were long. Kate Smith really sold a song.

I don't know just what went wrong. Those Were The Days

Ref Dan Weyant's ltr, "Fireworks cause noise, pollution." I wholeheartly agree. It's a shame that the majority have to suffer through the noise, pollution, and possibly injuries, house fires, etc. for the chldish whims of a few. Want to celebrate the 4th of July, wave a flag, sing the Star Spangle Banner, clean up a park and then have a cookout, serve a meal at a homeless shelter.

S.D. Wilson is right folks. What we see with this panel hand-picked by his Moo fee ness monster, is yet another display of abuse of office and power.

No wonder ALOT of people hate Mufi.

Raising taxes, fleece the tax payers, funnel money to his crooked cronies making the rail b.s., and rig the Police Commission for fire Correa.

Some cops never like Correa because he was hard and tough on them, placing service to the community over convenience of some cops.

Mufi still held grudge because Correa said no in dropping the speeding ticket against Mufi's wife AND Correa said no in dropping the DUI arrest and count against Mufi's mouthpiece, Bill Brennan.

YOU going let Mufi get away with this?

A great model for state operation exists in both the Alaska and Washington State ferry systems. We can have one, too. Imua!

Jim Nash, a much better idea for Hawaii, how about you move to Alaska or Washington to enjoy your ferries! That way everyone wins!! A Hui Hou

Shopo hated Correa because he took away the HPD version of Uku pau - a 12 hour/3 day work week.
