    Carroll reviews results of state audits of government agencies and programs.    He notes, information from the audit indicates some of the reasons why homeless and other programs do not work.  Officials from various organizations ask for federal money, but it looks like some of the projects or organizations, such as state-managed housing projects, are barely operating and fail to file proper paperwork documenting their activities and clients.   Paperwork and reviews are set up to guard against fraud and abuse.   So, it is a good possibility  anyone could be moving into public housing without a proper background or income check.   Based on the audit, Carroll asks, where is the money going?   The audit also shows problems with affordable care and programs for child health care, particularly with distribution of funds.  According to the audit, problems may result in a loss of funding.    According to the audit, non-federal funding is also at risk.  

    Does government even care about humanity?     

    Maybe there is a solution to our homeless issues.   


    Fishermen and other mariners are expressing concern about the recent order, dated 9/9/18,  by the Harbor Master,  to close Honolulu and Kalaeloa Barbers Point Harbors  due to the approaching hurricane Olivia.   (Link here to order).  The fishermen and mariners are  saying it will cause financial hardship and is not necessary.  They say they can either safely tie down and anchor their boats, or the government can designate an area where the vessels can be isolated.    They are asking, where can they safely go.    Many boats are in port to offload fish from earlier trips.  Some have not refueled, so they do not have enough fuel to go very far.   They also do not have ice or crew to go back to their normal  fishing grounds, and it will take several days to get ready.   They are asking, why are they being forced to leave the area.    They are also concerned about their own safety.  During Hurricane Lane,  if a boat could not leave the area they were being  forced to leave someone on the vessel to ride out the storm.   Fortunately that storm did not come.  Hopefully they will not be forced to stay aboard this time.   Link here to the letter.
