“Horrible eyesore’ doesn’t make sense

Now that Jimmy Pflueger is correcting his berm problem (TGI Sept. 13,

“Controversial berm cut down to size”), it would seem appropriate to focus on

the Michele and Justin Hughes project adjacent to Kealia Beach. They are

currently piling up junk rock, rubble and who knows what behind and in front of

their recently erected, ugly wire fence. Surely this horrible eyesore does not

meet setback or other permit requirements. Actually, it is far more of a blight

than Jimmy’s project.

One can only assume that this is being done for

security purposes. But surely they could afford a private security guard to

monitor their property. This would seem to be especially true since the Hughes

reportedly have maintained private security guards on a daily basis on our

public beaches. This has been ongoing for about 18 months. Evidently they are

protecting us from ourselves.

Finally, I understand this to be a very

“high end” development, and one would wonder who would want to own

property bounded by all of this junk? Maybe I am missing something
