Court voids permit for construction of Thirty Meter Telescope

AP: The Hawaii Supreme Court is invalidating a permit awarded for the construction of one of the world’s largest telescopes on a mountain many Native Hawaiians consider sacred.

The court ruled Wednesday that the state Board of Land and Natural Resources should not have issued a permit for the telescope before it held a hearing to evaluate a petition by a group challenging the project’s approval.

The ruling sends the case back to the board for a new hearing.

East Oahu Billionaire, Ige Admin Team Up to Promote State’s Largest Homeless Tent City—on Waianae coast

CB: …State Homeless Coordinator Scott Morishige stressed at the Waianae Coast Neighborhood Board meeting on Tuesday, while also trying to reassure people that no sweeps are currently planned for The Harbor homeless (methamphetamines) community.

“We want to make sure we are getting everyone’s input before we settle on any specific strategy,” Morishige said.

The unique tweekers’ homeless village had already won a big ‘victory’ Tuesday night: Moments before Morishige spoke, the neighborhood board passed a resolution to support “the ongoing leadership of Twinkle Borge and Loke Lono for the Waianae Harbor Village.”

Later, after Morishige had stood patiently for close to an hour listening to people tell him to leave the community alone, the board passed a second resolution, this time calling for the state to give the community a lease on the land.  This time they recognized the community by the new name Borge and Chung-Lono have (been instructed to) given it: Puuhonua O Waianae. Puuhonua means sanctuary, and will also be the name of the nonprofit that (activists and lawyers using) Borge and Chung-Lono hope to create to pursue a lease.

(Old pattern:  Drive the homeless out of Waikiki & Downtown and push them into West Oahu.  Then act like the problem is solved.)
