I agree with "Confused". Take that money and improve the highway into Lahaina. If God forbid, there were ever a major catastrophie, 10's of thousands of people would be screwed. Talk about bad publicity for Hawaii! You could kiss millions of tourists dollars goodbye for sure.

Hey Lingle - Help Maui out and take that $235 million and allocate it for our schools and road improvements - especially on the westside. Come on, you used to live here - help a brother out.

It's typical Lingle. She wants to dictate rather than neogiate. It's time to lose this loser.

What? How can concern over costs raised by a single senator justify scrapping the plans for a new prison? This doesn't even make sense. Lingle is just looking for an excuse to do whatever she wants and blame it on someone else.

This is great news for Maui (especially North Kihei).
All those work release convicts from Oahu will have to find jobs somewhere else.
The headline was a little misleading, hope it is dropped instead of shelved.
All those people who built/bought in Wailuku around the jail knew what they were getting in to.
Now, when the cane burning stops, Kihei will be a much better place for all the .......(I'm squeezing my lips).

That would be Corrections Corporation America - exclusively.
Close a prison on Big Island, can plans for building on Maui. All overflows of Hawaii prisoners now go to this corporation, with seedy GOP ties.
They also are the main lobbyists for the 3-strike rule.
It's an previously banned industry that has been resurrected and getting huge business, and has strong ties to political insiders and previous politicians. 3 former CIA directors as investors kinda paints the picture.
Go go GOP privatization!

Come build the prison in Malaekahana, Kahuku instead of Envision Laie. This prison will provide real stable jobs and decrease traffic. Most of the prison guards already come from that area.
The prison jobs provide good income. BYU-Hawaii build their dorms on campus and locals will be able to afford community homes vacated by students.

The good income will help locals afford the homes when the students move back into campus. This will be more sustainable than the shopping center and new expensive homes Envision Laie wants to build.Locals will benefit more from this.
