          January 24, 2016, Honolulu, Hawaii.  

          Carroll talks about the death of Mr. Sri Meheula Shim, an avid and experienced surfer and diver.  On January 9, 2016,  he was hit by a boat in Kailua Bay  and left to die.    

          People have been complaining about a specific boat, registered to Sai Hansen,  speeding in the bay.   On January 9, 2016,  Mr. Shim and his stepson were run over by that boat.  The son was taken to the hospital with deep cuts.    It was later reported to the officials at the scene that the boat may have hit another man.    But, by then, it was too late for Mr. Shim. 

          Most accidents have long investigations at the scene, and the people involved are named.   In this case, everyone is wondering how thorough and accurate the immediate investigation was, and why nothing is being reported regarding those involved, as is usually done for accidents and deaths.     Mr. Hansen has ties to Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard's religious group and its guru.  Some of the members live nearby and are active users of Kailua Bay.   Both the boaters and the divers were very Hawaii experienced in the ocean and it was reported the day was calm with high visibility.   So, how could this happen?

          It is interesting the vessel in question was not impounded, and the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR)  is now doing an investigation after the fact.   DLNR impounds boats for other infractions, why not this time?   Carroll asked the state for a copy of the required accident report, or if a copy could not be provided, who filed the report, and when.   He did not receive an answer.   People are asking whether a test for drugs or alcohol was done.  DLNR does not have the ability to conduct an accurate test, if they  even tested at all.  The DLNR has not interviewed, or even talked with the family, and are treating it as just another accident.    So many questions, and no answers.  Something's not right.   
          Apparently, once again,  the Department of Land and Natural Resources is involved in a big problem they cannot handle.   Callers participate in the conversation and they, along with many other people Carroll has talked to, express their frustration and concerns about what is going on.
          Carroll discussed the issues with John Noland on his show on Monday, 1/25/16.  Listen here.
          Also, listen here to the John Noland Show for Thursday, 1/28/16.  John's guests are Richard Hammerquist and Charlie Tebbutt, discussing the proposed Kaui Dairy.   This is a subject Carroll has discussed a number of times in the past.  Listen for the latest updates.  
          Family and friends of Sri Meheula Shim gathered Saturday afternoon, January 23, 2016, at Magic Island to celebrate his life and return Sri to the ocean he loved.   Sri was born December 17, 1956, in Honolulu, Hawaii, and graduated from Kamehameha High School in 1974.  He loved surfing and diving, yoga and biking, and most of all his family and friends.   At 5:00 p.m. a large group of his friends paddled out to Ala Moana Bowls, one of his favorite surf spots, and said goodbye.
