On another topic... the school is located across the street from an old sugar mill that is in the process of being torn down (this was very recently decided). However, there has been concerns that it won't be taken down correctly and it could be unsafe. The soil around the school was tested for chemicals relating to the mill and there is a meeting in Kekaha tonight about it. I cannot go, but I'm anxious to hear what happens. They are saying the people taking down the mill might need to wear protective bubble suits. The question is that if THEY have to wear a bubble suit to be safe, are we safe? We are literally directly across the street...just a little breeze send the dust from the mill directly to us. Actually, the school used to be owned by the sugar mill. It was there administration building.
