“I just got overheated,” Mr. Lowery told the Associated Press in a telephone interview from his home. “The doctor did tell me to slow down, though. I’m going to slow down, but it’s hard. Nobody respects my retirement, and I don’t insist. You have to be grateful folks still want you around.”
State’s high court nixes Superferry
HONOLULU — Hawaii’s Supreme Court has ruled that a state law allowing a high-speed ferry to operate while an environmental study is being conducted is unconstitutional.
The court on Monday sent the case back to Circuit Court, leaving the fate of the Hawaii Superferry’s service in question.
The Legislature passed a law in November 2007 allowing the Superferry to operate between Oahu and Maui while the state conducted an environmental-impact assessment for the service.
The Sierra Club, Maui Tomorrow and the Kahului Harbor Coalition had argued that the law was unconstitutional because it was targeted to benefit just one entity, the Superferry.
Church arsonist gets 40 years
RICHMOND — A man in and out of youth homes, jail and prison since he was a teenager has been sentenced to the maximum 40 years in prison for setting the fire that destroyed the only Catholic church in New Castle.
William Abbott, 34, said at the sentencing hearing Monday that he didn’t purposely target St. Anne Catholic Church.
Abbott pleaded guilty last month to a felony charge of arson.
Abbott said he didn’t plan the fire and bears no hatred toward religions. He has devil-horn tattoos on either side of his head, but they were covered by his hair at the hearing.
