      Carroll continues his discussion about the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR).    Carroll's story about Wilson Keahi renting out state land  adjacent to land he leases  from the state  to boaters, for their boat storage, has grown legs.    The story was published in Maui News yesterday, and today the Associate Press's story was published in the StarAdvertiser and several mainland papers.   The state has withheld the investigation report since September, 2013, but is now kicking boaters out who are leasing the state's property from Keahi.  

      The second story Carroll is following regards perks provided to Frazer McGilvray, a program administrator at DLNR for a little over one year, and McGilvray's connection to companies working closely with DLNR on programs on Maui.   Carroll reads an email he recently received from a anonymous source regarding corruption  in hiring and promotions at the DLNR, and containing more information about outside companies' and organizations'  influence in the workings of DLNR.   Carroll also reads a letter from an anonymous source about misuse of DLNR property and excessive travel by employees on Kauai.    There are some serious problems in DLNR.   Listen as Carroll gives even more examples.  


          Carroll has written an article regarding corruption and waste of money within the Department of Land and Natural Resources under Chairman William Aila, with examples of  Frazer McGilvray, a program administrator for a little over one year, flying first class and receiving other perks (as discussed 3/15/15), and Wilson Keahi allegedly renting and illegally leasing out state land that is adjacent to property he leases from the state to other boaters.   Nineteen months ago, after an investigation,  nothing happened.   Link here to read the article to see what happened after Carroll started asking questions.

          The second hour Carroll's guest is Dr. Kioni Dudley, talking about future traffic problems if the Hoopili development in Ewa goes through.  As bad as the zip mobile problem was,  Dr. Dudley warns us this may be how it will look every day after 70,000 additional homes are built on the Ewa plain.  Not only that, there are even more houses planned for other areas of the West Side.  There is also the consideration of a major loss of some of the best agricultural land on the island.    

          About the rail.  Realistically, how many people will take it if they have to wait to catch a bus to the station, take the train downtown, then wait to take another bus, or two, to their final destination?   What about navigating traffic when on the bus?  There are only 1,900 parking stalls planned for the West Side even though the rail's plan is to move  8,000 people an hour.    Who gets to park, and what would you do?  

          Visit www.hoopilitraffic.com  for more information.  Also, sign a petition and write the City Council.



            Another story Carroll has reported, and continues to  follow, is the sinking of the JUDY K in the Honolulu Harbor.   It is still there.  Why hasn't the state removed it instead of letting it sit there and leaking fuel and other chemicals into the harbor.







                A caller announces the Leeward Music Festival on 4/18/15, at 6:30 p.m. at the Kroch Auditorium in Kapolei.  Call 672-8888 for information.
