The question is answered,Kaua'i's own bridge to nowhere..." 'James "Kimo" Rosen'




I am one of the biggest proponents of the multi-use use trail on Kauai's east side.

I am flabbergasted and blown away at the incompetence of  the construction of the Kawaihau Rd. Hundley heights-up to Mahelona leg of the trail. The construction has been ongoing  since Memorial day and is now considered complete.

The problem is two hundred feet are complete from Mahelona hospital  down Hundley heights,  another 200 feet are complete at the bottom of Kawaihau Rd from the beach, however there is a gap in the middle with broken asphalt and dangerous trail conditions.

I asked  one of the construction workers last week when the two parts of the trail would connect, he shook his head and said,"the project ran out of money for this particular section the trail."

Please Mr Mayor, Please county council,  why stop construction when it's 2/3's complete, please do something about this?

This latest leg of the trail reminds me of  Alaska's  bridge to nowhere along with a Sara Palin mentality.

Whats is going on?

I received a phone call from Lenny Rapozo  the head of Kaua'i Parks and recreation and  he  explained what's going with the Hundley heights leg of the trail. 


Lenny assured me the switchback construction would be completed by the end of the year. The reason they stopped the construction is the company doing the work wanted 3 million for the completion of the already surveyed switchback. Lenny said he could get the same work done for approximately one million by some defense company and  thought that to be the best option.

I am paraphrasing what Lenny told me, even though it's federal monies the price-tag was  to high and wanted to save money," this is the reason.


I understand saving money is a priority and appreciate Lenny's  great efforts... It now makes total sense to me.

    Mario Manera Even his character Dano said on one of the episodes (I think the last episode in fact) that he hates Hawaii.

    James Kimo Rosen I actually believe Honloulu has the best food i the country, Caan obviously doesn't like Tai, Japanese, Vietnamese, Hawaiian or Korean cuisine. For me it's da bes kine!

    Ian Ross I think I feel most insulted by him saying that the food sucks.

    Francine M. Grace This really, really SUCKS, if it's Real. And if it is.....then time for a replacement. How can he say he doesn't like the food? On Oahu, you can get pretty much every ethnic food of the world. Time to go home Danno, if you're so Unhappy

    James Kimo Rosen Season 3 finale of Hawaii Five 0 could be Danno getting food poisoning then goes and surfs and disappears forever... next year have a brand new Danno and make it a woman this time, if McGarrett and Danno are going to keep nagging each other they may as well become a couple.../. ;D)

    Francine M. Grace They still have about 11 or so more shows of this season, as I've been told....I got thrown off by the 'Season Finale' title; I thought I saw on OTWC program guide or somewhere.....Said this season wraps up sometime in May......

    Mario Manera I could go for a female Dano, like in this new remake, Kono is a female played by Grace Park. If played by a female, they can still call her Danno, short for Daniela or something.

    Francine M. Grace I vote for a hunk-a-licious Danno., since we don't get to see enough of Mark Dacascos (Wo Fat). Maybe 'The Rock'......he's a former islander; who appreciates every thing Hawaii

    James Kimo Rosen Kono in the original Five-0 was a dude, now Kono is played by Grace Park, a beautiful young lady...So why not make Danno a Woman! Scott Caan is going to regret this interview. I my guess is he will retract and say he was just being facetious....
