    December 17, 2017,   Honolulu, Hawaii.  

    Carroll starts the show with a discussion about Trump, his banned words, and his administration.  Callers join in to defend Trump and his actions.   Carroll notes, we need to have patience and wait for results of the investigations, not attack the process.  

    The second hour a caller asks about fuel tank leaks, spills, and other toxic chemicals underneath properties in Hawaii.   Carroll then talks about open access to government records and the decision-making process.  Carroll plays more of the audio of Ray Soon speaking at the University of Hawaii symposium,  "Public Participation in a Polarized Era", he attended December 1 and December 2.   On the audio Ray Soon discusses his problems with too much openness and public participation during the development process.  At least one of the panelists suggested it is acceptable to remove matters that are normally public record out of public glare.  Should officials have discretion to decide what public matters are treated with transparency or privacy?     Carroll states openness is a safeguard to prevent the public from being ripped off, and we should all be concerned.  


                                        Ray Soon,   


                            Abandoned cars,    


                           and polluted streams    


     Yesterday, Carroll traveled up the Windward Coast to see if the abandoned  car he complained about, sitting next to the ocean tide pools,  had been removed.    It is still there, and Carroll asks why.    What are the priorities?   Big meetings, conventions,  and an overuse of travel expenses do not seem to be a problem, but removing a car, after several months leaking into the ocean, is not being addressed.      

    Next Carroll talks about the Pearlridge stream pollution he recently reported on, and the response he received from the company he filmed pressure washing the stream.  The stream contains endangered birds, but once again, the state did not respond to his complaint.   Carroll then reviews other polluted streams he has reported  on, with nothing being done.  We have a problem, and our people in government need to  be more responsive.
