  • Just put tape. Pau done. It’s the weekend, no worries, fix um one other time. The Train from West Kapolei to East Kapolei gonna be so great!

    • The terrible mistake made by spending so much on rail and so little on infrastructure will continue to haunt Honolulu for decades to come.

  • I wonder how many people are affected by this. In a previous story, we found out that one customer can be a multi office high rise building….this one is probably 4 high rise hotels.

  • It’s amazing that THE MAYOR, THE CITY/COUNTY COUNCIL MEMBERS, THE GOVERNOR, THE STATE LEGISLATORS even have the AUDACITY to show THEIR FACES IN PUBLIC. They are COLLECTIVELY THE MOST DESPICABLE, MALFEASANT, CORRUPT, IGNORANT, AND NEFARIOUS PERSONS ON THIS PLANET. IMPEACH ALL OF THEM, ORDER A “RICO” INVESTIGATION, AND INDICT ALL OF THEM PERSONALLY AND IN THEIR REPSECTIVE (STOLEN) CAPACITIES. AND, TAKE “THE RAIL” AND SHOVE IT UP THEIR RESPECTIVE BACKSIDES!!!
