How does it make her look "less" heroic. She spent her own money to further the cause....for the island of Maui I think 85 gs is getting off cheap and look at what the citizens retain...beach access and community unity. If I had ponied up that much dough and won the cause you bet I would take it if it were offered to me to offset my own costs. It doesnt make anyone less heroic. Its a cheap deal for the state and the island. Good grief~! And I doubt she was doing it to be heroic. Thats a myopic view of her goals I think
