Sweep of career criminals worthy of praise

Most of the 62 Oahu fugitives nabbed in a sweep last week didn't commit crimes that ended up as front-page news — but dozens of them were repeat, career criminals. So kudos go to law enforcers, especially from crime victims who know only too well how it feels to go through procedural hassles, loss of security and invasion of privacy.

"As many of you know, a small number of criminals are responsible for a large number of crimes," said Police Chief Louis Kealoha in announcing results of the "Lokahi Sweep" by the Hawaii Fugitive Task Force. Three of those nabbed had no bail and were hauled to prison; two others had high bail. Good job, crime fighters. Step One is getting the bad guys off the streets. Now Step Two: Keeping them from recommitting crimes.

For every car, a photovoltaic place to park?

Hawaiian Electric Co. and RevoluSun have teamed up to design a carport with photovoltaic solar roof panels that can provide power for the electrical car parked underneath. Last month, Pearlridge Center announced it was considering covering its open parking lots with photovoltaic panels, to provide power for its tenants and shade for its customers' cars. Could this be a trend? It sounds like a sensible one.
