Kokua Line: Slow drivers

"During morning or afternoon peak traffic hours, no one should drive, move or tow any vehicle which cannot maintain a speed at least 5 mph under the maximum speed limit posted for a street or highway, except on public holidays." LOL!! whoever wrote that part of the law probably never drove during peak traffic hours. I have! And I'd be very happy to be able to drive 50mph on the H1 from the H2 merge to town, but instead am lucky if I average 30.  (May 4, 2008 | post #4)

Whatever Happened: Drug testing teachers

"Should make no difference if they had a drink or a toke the night before. Unless they're drinking or smoking at school it's no one's business." Maynard, We've already had cases where teachers were caught smoking a toke on school grounds. We've also had a case where a teacher was selling dope while he was working. These could only be the tip of the iceberg, that's why we need random drug testing of teachers. If you have kids in school, wouldn't you want to know that they are safe and aren't being encouraged to use or sold drugs by their teachers? I sure would. As far as paying for the testing, we all will one way or another through our taxes. The testing was agreed to as part of the teachers' contract. IMHO, the DOE must fund it through their budget and not expect additional funding.  (Apr 26, 2008 | post #7)

Kokua Line: Plants removed

Wizard, They didn't remove all of the plantings. That's why the sprinkler had to be repaired.  (Apr 15, 2008 | post #3)

City Council transit trips add up

Yes Local Afar, that's exactly what I said in my post, except I didn't say he was unbiased. All of the people pushing one option or the other are biased toward their choice. All we can do is read or listen to their reasons and make our decisions as to who to believe. Then contact our council representative and convey our thoughts on what we want them to vote for. And then just hope they will listen to us and not the paid lobbyists. Do you have any better suggestions?  (Apr 13, 2008 | post #48)

City Council transit trips add up

Mr/Ms Must Vote, From the tone of your anonymous post, it would appear that you are obviously connected with the " HOT Lane Mass Transit System." I would suggest that you and other readers go back and read an article that appeared in the Star-Bulletin on March 2, 2008 by Michael Schneider. He is partner and co-founder of InfraConsult, a Hawaii-based transportation management firm. Here is an excerpt from the article. "But the time has come to set the record straight: While managed lanes, HOT lanes or bus lanes can be a useful complement to a fixed guideway system, such approaches are no substitute for a permanent rail-based system as the backbone of a regional transit program." You can find the whole article at the link below by clicking on it or copying and pasting into your brouser. http://starbulleti n.com/2008/03/02/e ditorial/commentar y3.html  (Apr 13, 2008 | post #12)

Maui police kill suspect

"Makes me get chicken skin every time I hear about officers shooting down somebody. Scary to think they are just as dangerous as the bad guys." HaikuGirl, Anyone that purposely hits 3 police officers with his car deserves whatever he gets. The officers knew that George Brittain was a dangerous felon that carried weapons, based on his prior convictions. He was a known ice user and distributor. As such, he was more dangerous than any police officer doing their sworn duty. Sure he could have been tracked down eventually. But how many other people would he have run-down trying to escape capture? To me, the police did what was necessary to stop this dangerous criminal from possibly harming anyone else. I sympathize with his family over their loss; but better to have 1 dead criminal than 3 or more dead police officers or innocent bystanders.  (Apr 12, 2008 | post #39)

Smoking ban's effect on bars needs study

Mr.Keith Haugen, Have you ever heard of "equal rights for all"? If you really meant it saying we should ban smoking in the whole state to have a healthy state, why not ban all of the other detriments to good health? How about banning alcohol, fatty foods, motor vehicles and all of the other things in life that result in people dying? Oh, but wait, aren't we all going to still die anyway? Hmm...back to the drawing board, Mr.Haugen.  (Apr 6, 2008 | post #464)

22-year-old found not guilty of murder

The jury must have felt that the prosecution didn't prove their case. Maybe I missed something, but was only Sheldon Amuo charged with murder? What happened to the three other guys involved?  (Mar 29, 2008 | post #2)
