Recent Maui News!

I'll catch ya up on the latest Maui news:

1. Bike tours down Haleakala have been given the order to stop by the National Park Service's Superintendent Marilyn Parris--a stand-down for 60 days--after the death last month in the park. Safety issues will be evaluated during this time. The downhill bike industry is huge on Maui and employs many people. What is going to happen after this time period? Will bike tours become a thing of the past?

2. The Superferry can't operate until an Environmental Assessment is done according to 2nd Circuit Judge Joseph Cardoza in his ruling last Tuesday. So for now, the Superferry won't be coming to Maui. Yeh! I'm not on the side of the Superferry for many reasons which I won't go into here.

3. Maui is ONCE AGAIN considered the "Best Island in the World in the 2007 Conde Nast Travelers magazine readers poll. Maui's been rated the "Best Pacific Island" for 17 years since polling began, but last year lost out to the Maldives. Not only did Maui win in the Best Island Category but also triumphed with the winning score of the BEST of all the world's destinations! Pretty amazing, eh?

And just think, we live here!
