        Carroll talks about  issues where the Hawaii State Department of Health (DOH), and the City and County of Honolulu have failed the public.    Carroll provides many examples including the  handling of settlements for the  2014 spill of medical waste from the Waimanalo Gulch Landfill  and the molasses spill into Keehi Lagoon.  There have also been multiple fires and other problems at Island Recycling, Inc.,  ongoing sewage spills, ocean pollution and trash in the streams. The Red Hill fuel tank leaks and Keehi Lagoon fuel tank leaks are still open issues.  Until we have better enforcement, nothing is going to happen.  Until we stand up and question our state legislators, they aren't going to do anything either.

        Carroll tells us more about the recent 120-day ban on the taking of sea cucumbers by the Board of Land and Natural Resources (BLNR),    Sea cucumbers need protection, but permission had already been given to take sea cucumbers under a commercial fishing license. The BLNR is acting like they had no rules and the sea cucumbers are in dire need of immediate emergency protection.   Carroll wonders why the taking of sea cucumbers was not studied prior to allowing the commercial take.  After pictures appeared on social media sites, the DLNR initiated a campaign to propagandize its desire to continue funding DLNR's Community Fishseries Enforcement Unit on Maui.  As part of this campaign, DLNR detained a legal shipment of sea cucumbers from Maui to Honolulu and sent officers to Honolulu to conduct a surveillance of the sea cucumbers being delivered to a residence in Laie.  The officers from Maui were also brought to Oahu to participate in a planned media event for the announcement of the 120-day ban on the commercial taking of sea cucumbers.      Read the attached article about why Carroll thinks the situation was set up by BLNR Chairman Suzanne Case, for other reasons.   Also, listen to his previous show, on 6/28/15, regarding the situation.
