Zion Ipuka Doing

The folks of Zion Ipuka are making the good effort to help their fellow humans and I am certainly willing to do what I can to help them.


Dear Friends of the Homeless:
I hope you will join us to help the ones who live in our community and are often forgotten. Sometimes just a hot meal, a prayer or a friendly hug will go a long way to help them feel loved. You are always welcomed to join us. Just look for our Brown Van or follow this blog and whatever you can do will be greatly appreciated.
God Bless, - Pastor Curtis for Zion Ipuka.

Thank You Jesus for all you do for us in our lives. We love you more than
words can express. And thank you brother Joe for helping support us in
our effort of giving back to our God and our community. May God
continue to bless our Tuesday feeding of our family and friends.
Love, Zion Ipuka

Makaha

The area and the real residents of the community are looking better all the time. And what is more they are becoming aware of it. They even have a few religious groups that help out the poor in places all the way down to Nanakuli for instance, Zion Ipuka.

It is to be regretted that the rich and powerful too often bend the
acts of government to their own selfish purposes.

The Hawaiian Princess Condo is located on Oahu’s sunny Westside in the Makaha Valley, on a 1/3rd mile pristine white sand beach. One of the best kept vacation destination secrets on the island of Oahu where they offer an affordable, discounted alternative for the budget minded traveler while providing an upscale condominium setting. But we all understand that it is definitely not for the natives.


The Hawaiian Princess offers a secure beachfront setting with free gated parking. The complex also offers a Saltwater Swimming Pool, Jacuzzi Hot Tub, Tennis Court and a Barbecue area for your enjoyment.  Snorkeling, Boogie Boarding and swimming are a step away. Watch the Sea Turtles, Spinner Dolphins and Humpback Whales (in-season) frolic in the warm crystal blue waters of the Pacific Ocean.

Dine on and watch the magnificent sunsets from your own private lanai and they do have dancing but it is only for "their kind." Of course we all know that this was not built for the people of the Waianae Coast even if we know there will be a few residents that will be in charge of "Housekeeping and Janitorial Duties."


I'm also hoping to find Two Centers and Guest Authors and to encourage dancers to share photos and items of interest that I can post here or any blog of their choosing.  I'm hoping to establish a sense of community in whatever area they live in. I'm also helping to make the internet experience and experiment affordable and more in line with the level of results that dancers can expect to receive.

Some Are Lucky

Met a guy that lives in Kapolei and works in Makaha. Sounds bad in the beginning, but he tells a different story. In the morning he does not have to worry about the big traffic mess on the freeway to Honolulu. He is going down Farrington and the roadway is clear as a bell. All the traffic is going the other way, jam packed. And we all know that it is going  to get worse.

"Facts do not cease to exist just because they are ignored."


The beautiful Articulated Buses. One tenth the cost of the Rail Mess and ten times more efficient. Easy to make more comfortable and I can get it right around the corner and get me to town without a lot of hassles.

Keep the country, country, no sidewalks, no shoe stores.
He makes less money than he would in town, but when Pau Hana, he is going home and the roadway is just beautiful. Everyone is all going the other way, the roads are jam packed, many times at a stand still. He is home in a little over half hour. When the Rail Disaster gets it, it will get worse, because the money has to go for them first. And those Fat Cats in Honolulu are making millions on that Rail Catastrophe.

Yes, I am aware. The beginning of voices that say, "Stop the Rail" but there is too much money at stake. Big Big Profits that will be going on for years. You know what the minimum wage will be for carpenters? Auwe. They had a good rep, what happened? Remember when Carpenter was such an honored name? And they have bought so many at UH West Oahu when people should know better.

All over the world, the goal is to get people off their cars and to use transportation. But it must be "comfortable" and let's face it. The Rail Holocaust is one big humbug from beginning to end. It's just the money, Sonny. It's the bread, Fred.


Business Park in Makaha. What a break for a lot of citizens of this entire coast. But we already know of the Fat Cats in Honolulu, they no like.

Luckily, the Nanakuli Village Center could not be stopped though some are still trying. All the lucky people that will be able to work there and many will make it home in 20 minutes and get to spend some time with their families. Many minimum wage jobs too, but minimum wage in Nanakuli is worth ten times what it is worth in Honolulu. And think of all the cars missing from the freeway to and from Honolulu. So many people are not aware.

The Rail Mess

And it gets worse. They have a new facebook entry, Westside Traffic Alerts and most of it is knitpicking. The timing of the signals, the left turns in the wrong places, the crosswalks, the rude people. And it all ignores that the whole mess is the fault of the Rail Holocaust and it is going to get worse.

I saw it on the Internet, and people do say what they think.
"The property taxes and sales taxes will go sky high, now that the people got fooled into this dumb choo choo train that goes nowhere. Do like any intelligent human being would do, who doesn't want to go broke and end up homeless. Sell your house and move."


If they had 100 dollars to spend last year, they only have 50 dollars this year because the rest of it has to go for the Rail Mishap. And the estimates keep going up. The costs are now estimated at over 8 billion from the original five and many already realize that it may hit ten million before they are done. This is easy money for many, starting with the overpaid HART board of rubber stamps.


Pearl City Business Park. The most fortunate people on this Island, the residents that work here and can get home in 20 minutes. Some people lucky enough to live in Paradise. Some getting screwed up something awful with the Rail Crisis and messed up by the profit takers.

They have successfully stopped at least two possible industrial parks that would have done wonders for the area but the Present Rail Party has bought their way in. Kapolei is fighting to establish themselves as second city. And that means, live, work and play in their own kuleana. And leave the freeway nightmares to others. Fortunately this can also apply to the Waianae Coast when we get rid of those Party Poopers and starting thinking of the residents of this fine community.

Lualualei Industrial Park

It is apparent that the Present Rail Party overruled the people again. No Lualualei Industrial Park. Tropic Land LLC had proposed to develop an industrial park that would occupy approximately 35 lots, averaging two acres each. The project would have a single secured entry off of Lualualei Naval Access Road and a secondary access for fire and emergency purposes.

"You can con some of the people all of the time. and all of the people some of the time, but you cannot con all of the people all the time."
Who said that?

The existing linear tree farm would remain as a 30-foot landscaped setback along the Lualualei Road frontage. An additional strip of land, approximately 100 feet wide and mauka of the industrial lots, would have been used for drainage improvements and rockfall hazard mitigation.


The amendment would have provided an inventory of industrial space on the Waianae Coast, which does not have a similar facility. The people will be forced to go to Honolulu. The proposed project would have been an attractive mix of light industrial businesses and provided open yard space for storing materials, trucks, and heavy equipment. And "I coulda been home in 20 minutes."


The #403 Nanakuli-Waianae bus, the most perfect bus in existence will
be terminated by the Rail Calamity. There is no resident that has
ever made a complaint about the bus.

The industrial park would have had the potential to become an employment center offering many well-paid jobs that are within convenient commuting distance of Waianae Coast communities. Many minimum wage jobs to be sure, but minimum wage in Lualaulea is worth ten times what it is worth in Honolulu, The preliminary cost of the light industrial park, based on the conceptual site plan, was estimated at $29 million. Peanuts compared to billions and billions in the Rail Catastrophe. But it's the bread, Fred.
