Sidewalk ordinance is long overdue

Letter to the Editor

Congratulations to Honolulu City Council member Ikaika Anderson and other Council members for Bill 7, and Mayor Kirk Caldwell for enforcing this sidewalk-nuisance ordinance. It was long overdue.I do not see the mayor or the Council as being inhumane. On the contrary, the homeless were offered shelter but refused because they’d rather not be subjected to rules and regulations. I, too, would love to live without laws that restrict my every move. Sorry, lawless societies create chaos beyond one’s wildest imagination. And as far as (de)Occupy Honolulu protesters are concerned, they should stop hiding behind that “free speech” veil and go get a worthwhile life. Do I despise the homeless? No. Do I think it disgusting and repulsive that they took over the city by illegally camping whenever and wherever they feel like? Yes.

As for the American Civil Liberties Union, it is doing what it thinks it needs to do. God bless it.Using our taxpayer money to defend Bill 7 will be money very well spent.

The biggest winners? The media folks who sell political advertising. None thought they could match the oodles spent last year on an open seat in the 2nd Congressional District, an open U.S. Senate seat, a fiercely contested mayoral race, and a rematch in the 1st District between Hanabusa and Republican Charles Djou. Add Pacific Resource Partnership and other political advertisers, and politics practically printed money for Hawaii’s various media outlets throughout 2012. Read More

New fee could save money for Oahu drivers

Gas prices in Hawaii keep on climbing. And with every fill up, you’re helping to fix our roads with a county gas tax. But what if that tax went away and your car registration went up instead?

The idea of a highway user fee is gaining steam. It would save some drivers cash while costing others extra.

It’s no secret that Oahu’s roads are in poor shape. To fix them, the city needs more cash. Read More
