Just in...Bishop Estate; Hawaii harbors

Broken Trust: Greed, Mismanagement, & Political Manipulation at America's Largest Charitable Trust, by Samuel P. King and Randall W. Roth. In August 1997, the Honolulu Star Bulletin published "Broken Trust," a lengthy essay detailing "breaches of trust" by the powerful trustees of Bishop Estate/Kamehameha Schools as well as by Hawaii's political establishment. The essay ultimately led to the removal or resignation of all five trustees and instigated other far-reaching effects in Bishop Estate and Hawaii's political and judicial systems relating to the Estate. In the 324-page Broken Trust, Judge King and Professor Roth, two of the five authors of the 1997 essay, have chronicled "events in the political, economic, and educational life of Hawaii that were precipitated by the turmoil at Kamehameha Schools/Bishop Estate between 1997 and 1999."

The Hawaii Harbor Users Group (HHUG) is a nonprofit maritime industry group of such key harbor users as Matson, Young Brothers, and Norwegian Cruise Line. HHUG commissioned this report "to review and evaluate facility requirements within the Hawaiian harbors system and develop a set of priorities for future port development. " The report gives an overview of port operations and key operating and capacity issues for six harbors: Honolulu, Kalaeloa Barbers Point, Kahului, Hilo, Kawaihae, and Nawiliwili, and describes new activities to be accommodated in the harbors system.
