ALL UH Manoa Students to be Charged $20.00 Per Semester “Bus Fees”

I don’t think this is right to charge ALL students $20.00 per semester to have a certain percentage of the students be able to ride the bus for free.

What about students who drive their own cars?  What about students who live on campus in the dorms.

This “Fee” is another money maker at the expense of UH Students!

At its monthly meeting held today at Leeward Community College, the UH Board of Regents (BOR) approved an agreement between the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa and the City and County of Honolulu to implement the Student U-PASS Transportation fee of $20 per semester to provide a bus pass for unlimited use by students on all bus routes…

…The fee of $20 would be assessed to undergraduate and graduate students each semester, regardless of credit load, beginning in spring 2010. The two-year pilot program will run during the fall and spring semesters through 2011. A two-month opt-in summer pass will be available at a discounted rate for June and July.

A Message to Prosecuting Attorney Jay Kimura

Mr. Jay Kimura, Prosecuting Attorney for Hawaii County has a budget of 9 million dollars to prosecute and convict Hawaii residents. He’s continuing to use public funds to prosecute cases which are defined as ‘adult personal use’, involving 24 or fewer plants and 24 or fewer ounces on private property.

It’s a shame. Not only that, it’s against the law. Mr. Kimura is saying he doesn’t have to obey The Lowest Law Enforcement Priority of Cannabis Ordinance.

What about the 35,000 voters who made sure it passed into law Mr. Kimura? They are the ones who pay your salary. We think you should show a little more respect.

Stop prosecuting ‘adult personal use’. Start obeying the law. Make Cannabis offenses your lowest priority.
