Yesterday, the third day of the Hokulia Bypass trial, I drove up to Kainaliu at 5:30 for Big River. (Last weekend!)
There was no traffic slowdown. None. I drove straight up from town to the new Oshima parking lot in Kainaliu. Now Kona mauka residents can see just what this legal debacle has been costing them, in time. Incompetence and fecklessness on the part of the County is in there too, but the truth is that the Coupes' supreme selfishness has cost West Hawaii residents hundreds of hours of their precious time over the last several years of delay.
