New council off to a head-shaking start
Kauai County may have just had its most important local election in a generation, but who would have thought the new County Council would begin by calling police to remove a public commenter who refused to relinquish his seat until someone told him who called the meeting?

Don’t see why Mr Parachini continues to rag on the 2491 movement. In the end they got mostly what they wanted, and the island is better off for it. Buffer zones, disclosure , and a ban on chlorpyrophos (sp?). Wouldn’t have happened without that broad based community action. Superferry anyone?
It’s because you all were like three thousand little uncivil trumps running around in the getting of it!
Council was trying to be friendly.
Council should clamp down. Share nothing.
Embarrassing, another example of people not accepting elections.
Mason or Arryl are both good.
Alan, the author should go to the westside some day. Drive to Lihue and turn right. You will meet people with generational,perspectives. Not the locked down new comer, know it all perspective.
Kip, your 2491 bill was deemed illegal and was overturned by the courts. Great law making!
Talk about starting out, again, on the wrong foot. If Kaneshiro had unwavering integrity, as the incoming chair he would have put a stop to the practices of old. Same old, same old. Also, it is important to give the appearance leading in an unbiased fashion. I fully expect that Kaneshiro will but the perception by some (or many) will be that he’s biased. Right or wrong, this was a bad choice. Do we really want the chair to recuse himself with any issue dealing with Grove Farm interests? Leave it to Imua44 to throw the “we grew here, you flew here” stick in the hornets nest. If 2 + 2 = 4, that’s as true on Kauai as it is on the mainland.
