Travelers can't find out-of-the-way Hawaii airport 2014-10-17T13:46:14-04:002014-10-17T13:33:59-04:00Copyright 2010 Blackfoot Morning NewsMokulele Airlines is the first commercial airline to offer service out of a west Oahu airport that's at a former naval air station. On July 1, the airline began offering three roundtrip flights a day to Kahului, Maui, out of the Kalaeloa Airport."We've had a lot of no-shows because people miss the flight because they can't find the airport," said CEO Ron Hansen.There's no airport sign on the freeway, and the road to the airport has a series of merges and turns through some unpopulated areas.Despite the lack of signs, the airline has decided to add more flights from Kalaeloa, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported Monday. Next week, Mokulele plans to begin three daily round trips between Kalaeloa and Hoolehua, Molokai, and two daily round trips between Kalaeloa and Kapalua, Maui."We've asked the (state Department of Transportation) to put up the normal signs that occur all over the 50 states, and they've yet to do that," Hansen said. "We've asked and asked and asked. We've even put up little signs ourselves — like campaign signs— but the community takes them down because they're not approved."The transportation department is working with the city and county and other state agencies to post signs, said Ross Higashi, deputy director of airports.Hansen said if the state fails to follow through with the signs, Mokulele Airlines might have to pull out of service at the airport."We invest a lot of money in these flights — a considerable amount of money — and it's like we're playing with one hand tied behind our back," he said. "When people can't find the airport, how do you expect an airline to survive? We just hope the state does its part."Blackfoot, IDMORNING NEWS

Woman says she dug up dad's grave 'with respect' 2014-10-17T00:39:21-04:002014-10-17T00:39:21-04:00Copyright 2010 Blackfoot Morning NewsProsecutors allege Melanie Nash, 52, conspired with others to remove her father's remains from the Colebrook Village Cemetery in May. The vault of businessman Eddie Nash, who died in 2004, was found cracked with the casket opened and his remains searched through.The Caledonian Record reports Melanie Nash's lawyer, William Albrecht, filed a motion last month arguing statements made after her arrest and before she was advised of her Miranda rights should be excluded because they violate her right against self-incrimination.Coos County Attorney John McCormick said Nash showed her "free will" in coming to police and waiving her Miranda rights.Police believe the casket was pulled out after Melanie Nash commented about her father being buried with "the real will." A police affidavit said she didn't find a will, only a pack of cigarettes in her father's hand.Nash told police she did not receive anything when her father died and had been thinking of digging up the grave for years to prove her sister, Susie Nash, "hid the will." Susie Nash has said there was only one will when her father's estate plan was done in 1995 and everyone involved knew about it.In her June 11 written statement to police, Melanie Nash wrote that she met up with others to go to the cemetery to go dig up her father's grave. Four people have been indicted in the case.She wrote: "All this was done for the right reasons and I know my father would be OK with it."She ended her statement with: "What we all did was to dig up my father's coffin, Eddie Nash, looking for documents. We did it with respect."Blackfoot, IDMORNING NEWS
