Haleiwa family caught between 2 shopping centers


    This is the entrance to the “new” Kewalo Lane that leads to the parking lot. The “old” Kewalo Lane is on the left of the 5th buisness on the left (or to the left of Uncle Bo’s restaurant at 66-111 Kamehameha Hwy.).


    Wilma Ward is complaining to the city because Kamehameha Schools said it would maintain her access to her home when it redeveloped surrounding property. But Kamehameha Schools instead created a new Kewalo Lane as a central entrance to its shopping complex, forcing Ward to drive through the parking lot to link up with a gravel path often blocked by delivery trucks and patrons. While Ward was standing at the entrance to the access road to her home, it seemed as if a truck wanted to park there, which meant she couldn’t access her property.


    Ward walks down the access road to her home. In back of her is the entrance that is often blocked by vehicles.

Wilma Ward had peacefully lived in a rural part of Haleiwa behind the town’s business strip for nearly all her 71 years. Read more
