Today in West Hawaii history | June 9

June 9, 1984: West Hawaii Today did not publish on this day. June 9, 1984, was a Saturday.

June 9, 1994: Results of a 1993 statewide drug and alcohol survey are complete but Department of Education officials will not release them until they are presented to the Board of Education. The results of the survey, which was taken by students in the fall, do not need BOE approval to be released, but DOE policy embargoes such information until it is seen at a regular board meeting, DOE officials said.

June 9, 2004: The protect Keopuka Ohana is seeking a hearing from the state to determine whether an archaeological inventory survey for the Alii Parkway should be reconsidered. Jack Kelly, vice president of the Native Hawaiian and environmental activists group, wrote to Peter Young, chairman of the state Department of Land and Natural Resources, asking for a contested-case hearing for some other administrative procedure because certain burials and possible burial sites in the pathway of the highway are incorrectly classified as inadvertently discovered.
