Aloha Everyone,

I would like everyone to know that The State of Hawaii plans to store fuel and oil right next to Pelekane Bay in a Tidal Wave, Fire Hazard, and Earthquake zone in Kawaihae. There is an underwater shark heiau (Hale O Kapuni) within the bay. The sharks still swim in and sometimes if you are lucky you can watch them. We have started petitions in opposition but the State of Hawaii says that I am the only one in opposition and is ignoring our concerns. What do you think of all this?
