FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Noise Advisory for Schofield Barracks

SCHOFIELD BARRACKS, Hawaii – Residents in the vicinity of Schofield Barracks may experience periodic increases in noise Nov. 4 – 7, as a result of scheduled training here.

The training, consisting of small arms and artillery live-fire, will be conducted from approximately 10 a.m. to 3 a.m.

Please note that training is likely to occur late into the night. Dates and times are subject to change, as the training is contingent on required environmental conditions, such as wind speed and moisture levels. Additionally, overcast conditions may increase noise and vibrations. Smoke may also be visible for a short time.

The Army in Hawaii appreciates the community’s understanding and continued support of local Soldiers and their families. While sometimes loud, the sounds of training represent how the Army ensures our nation’s Soldiers are ready to accomplish their mission and return home safely.

To report concerns related to noise or training, please call the U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii (USAG-HI) Noise Concern Line at 656-3487. The USAG-HI Public Affairs Office will contact you about your concern during regular business hours, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.-4 p.m.

September 26, 2013

When No. 8 Kapolei meets No. 6 Waianae on Friday night at Raymond Torii Field, there won’t be any kind of special trophy on the line.

That doesn’t mean the two schools haven’t developed a little bit of a rivalry.

Waianae is 8-4 against Kapolei since the Hurricanes fielded their first football team in 2002. Playing in the OIA White Division its first two seasons, Kapolei took on Waianae in the preseason both years, splitting the two meetings…

Responding to community concerns that tons of sludge is being dredged from the Hawaii Kai Marina and dumped in Waianae, Councilmember Kymberly Marcos Pine is demanding that the Hawaii Kai Community Association remove all of the debris and return it to holding areas in Hawaii Kai.

 

The City has cited SER Trucking, which was hired to truck and store the materials, for not having a proper grading permit. However, Councilmember Pine does not believe this is enough to stop the potentially illegal dumping.

 

“I will make sure that I do everything in my power, including exploring all legislative options to stop this private marina from dumping its sludge in our community and ensure that this unchecked dumping never happens again,” Councilmember Pine said.

 

Waianae residents are upset that the sludge is being dumped in their community and expressed their concerns. Responding to the community, Robert Clark, president of the Hawaii Kai Marina Community Association referred to Waianae residents’ concerns as “total ignorance,” saying, “if they were aware of what that material was, they would say please let me have more of it,”  (Hawaii News Now).

 

Councilmember Pine also responded to Mr. Robert Clark’s statements today, saying “I take great offense to Mr. Clark’s statement and demand that he apologize to the people of Waianae for his comments. The people of Waianae are smart innovative citizens who care deeply about their ‘aina.”
