If you're interested in shoreline issues, check out my cover story in this week's Honolulu Weekly on how private landowners continue to encroach onto public beaches with their intentionally planted vegetation. It's a serious matter if you value our beaches.
And then tune in to KKCR from 4 to 6 p.m. today (FM 90.9, 91.9, 92.7 or www.kkcr.org), where my co-host Caren Diamond and I will be talking about various hot topics along the coast, including the path at Wailua, shoreline encroachment and the bathrooms at Ke`e. It's a call-in show, so join us with your questions and comments.

I liked the article. Walton Hong said that? He'd have a hard time proving that one caused the other.
I see that you dishonestly said that Brescia is "building atop some 30 ancient Hawaiian burials at Naue."
Yeah it's actually 31.
Actually it's more like 7. Which is bad enough. No need to damage her journalistic credibility by making false statements.
wah waaah! I'll call the wambulance for you, joan!
Joan, do you ever get the feeling that you're casting pearls before swine?
Never let the truth get in the way of a good story...
"Yeah it's actually 31."
-- nice one! :)
Perfect, the hawaiian on Joans radio show just said that all of Kauai is sacred and you can't pick one part over another. There ya go. No doing nothing anywhere. It's all sacred.
I think the people who lived on this island longer than a few years have noticed gradually our beach access taken away with fencing, mega mansions, and illegal planting along the beaches....contributing more overflowing cesspools into the ocean.
I have to say..."the rich" think they are the privileged blessed by God class...money influences everything they want changed....including our politicians.
The whole paradigm goes so against the "aloha spirit" that no wonder Hawaiians hate haoles....and some Hate themselves for letting this happen.
Great show on KKCR Thursday.
Now finally....we are getting some issues discussed.
Thanks Joan for taking the soap box out of the box and into the next level
Mahalo Joan for a great discussion yesterday. Everyone needs to pay attention and look at what's going on in Wailua. The bike path is just one of several developments that are in the works. Because of the way that the projects have been segmented, authorities have gotten away with only having to conduct Environmental Assessments. However, the bridge work, the widening of the road, the expansion of Kuamo`o Road, the undergrounding of utilities, including taking lines via subsurface horizontal drilling underneath the Wailua River, etc. These are urgent issues that will impact our environment AND the cultural, historical and spiritual integrity of this renown place. Since ancient times, Wailua was regarded as a super special area. It still is. Yet no EIS?
i bet an island-wide eis would recommend an abortion clinic, if you want to take it to its logical extension
I am not convinced the 1,000,000 money for tourism did anything. Especially after I look at the results for Oct. that HTA put out. How did Kauai compare with the other islands in % decrease (not increase) in tourism. That would be the right comparison. I agree with Jerry that tourism is a dead horse...
