BEST USE OF COUNTY FUNDS
Civics Lesson #1: Education is a state-funded, state-organized and state-run deal. The State of Hawai‘i builds and repairs schools using state money. Now the runner-up here—cleaning up abandoned cars—is actually a county-funded project. Just as we were learning to love the fire-licked, four-wheeled—or sometimes three, two or even one-wheeled—carcasses littering our roads, the county started hauling them away.
