    One manuever that went unreported, unrecognized by the media and not widely known among Kauai citizens regarding Governor Lingle's introducing her Superferry Unified Command to Kauai residents a week ago was the fact that on her panel she did not have a member of Hawaii National Guard on the panel she introduced to Kauai citizens attending the meeting and the Oahu Superferry employees is whose jet stream she flew to Kauai.

    Since beginning a few days before the Governors arrival to Kauai, the Guard had begun "anti-terrorist exercises" at Vindinha Stadium about midway between the Convention Hall and the Superferry staging area next to the public park at Nawiliwili. Small coincidence? I doubt it.

    That's an increase of 4,701 people in only 6 years.
    4,701 sounds like a lot of people, but that's about 8% or 1.3% per year. Doesn't sound like that big number to me. What's the normal growth though birth rate? I don't have time now to look, but I have to wonder if more people are leaving Kauai then arriving.

    Lingle isn't the one telling Kauai "Just wait until the next hurricane".
