I am getting used to this moving slowly but then "Rome was not built in a day." A contact in Makaha, one in Waianae and one in Lualualei, it is coming, just slowly.

"Most of the change we think we see in life may be due
to truths being in and out of favor."

In Nanakuli the only good contact I have left is Kokua Mao. So Nanakuli will have to start all over again from Kokua Mao. I help them a little and they help me too. We are making good friends.

Test photos by Roy. I am trying to get my cameras going but I am always pressing the wrong buttons or something. This seem to be all right. I will have to do a little testing of my own.

Nanakuli Housing, good news:
Good response to overcrowded households, severely dilapidated houses, and the lack of affordable housing opportunities in the Nanakuli Homesteads. The Nanakuli Hawaiian Homestead Community Association forged a working relationship with the nonprofit Hawaiian Community Development Board to develop a $15 million 48-unit affordable rental housing project in Nanakuli. Looks like a humdinger but may be cancelled to pay for the Rail Fiasco. Big Buck$ in Profit$ in the Rail.
The Hale Makana O Nanakuli project will provide safe, secure transitional and long-term rental housing designed to meet the needs of Nanakuli's low-income, with focus on Nanakuli's low-income Hawaiian families who earn 40% or below the adjusted median income.

It will provide immediate relief to Nanakuli families with too many members living in the same household, to families living in dangerous dilapidated houses, or families who have been forced to abandon their homes.

Qualified tenants of Hale Makana may participate in the Kauhalepono Replacement Home Project. Hale Makana is primarily designed to help the Nanakuli homestead community by providing alternate housing, but within a major "Village Center" that also includes multi-purpose learning, community health, and commercial retail centers. Could be a new Paradise.
