Subject: a victory for Hapa Trail

Aloha Hapa Trail supporters,

In February Goodfellow Brothers plowed through a portion of Hapa Trail while grubbing at the Village at Poipu project. They were cited by the County and the State and plead guilty. Yesterday, in the court of Judge Trudy Senda they were fined 2,200 cubic yards of pohaku which will be used to restore the Hapa Trail walls.

Together with the 2,000 linear feet Knudsen Trust must provide, this should be enough pohaku to restore both sides of the trail all the way to St Raphael's Church, as they were in 1975. We all owe a debt of gratitude to our County Prosecutor, Shaylene Iseri-Carvalho for her diligence and hard work on behalf of Kaua`i's citizens.The pohaku will be stored on the site of Honu Group's prosective shopping center, thanks to Mona Abadir.

It is a small but important victory in a long battle. Your support is appreciated and very much needed............Mahalo
