Re: josh

Aloha Josh,
You raise a good question. I'd like to bounce it off others. My gut tells
me to go for state funding and don't depend on the Army, though the Army
should be pressed for doing it's job to identify the extent of the mess and
provide for clean up to the fullest extent possible. People have raised the
question of testing of citizens for exposure. I would think that all of us
at the Saddle Rd. May 29th ceremony were exposed, given the readings coming
off Pohakuloa that day. I think the key thing right now is a call for an
immediate halt to all live fire training at all military ranges in Hawaii
due to the risk of spreading DU.
Perhaps you could again push for citizen oversign of the ongoing monitoring
process by the Army. Lorrin Pang, Ku Clarence Ching, an attorney, former
OHA trustee with chemistry background who worked in the nuclear regulatory
field at the Idaho national facility, plus a peace movement representative
would be good citizen monitors of the monitors.
Mahalo for your kokua.
