Honolulu Weekly Recognition
November 28, 2001

While we are excited that the Honolulu Weekly has recognized our Skatepark Progress efforts in their newspaper, we are even more excited that when you fold the paper in half our article touches an adult film models wanted classified.

Skate Watchdog
Keeping tabs on city promises
By Li Wang - Honolulu Weekly

With two completed skate parks and 14 more facilities under construction (or on the drawing boards) for Oahu, the locally produced 50-50.com website is doing its part to hold the City & County accountable for its skatepark promises, with some sharp reporting on the status of projects.

Click on the Hawaii Skatepark Progress Page to see construction photos, the lowdown on the contractors and proposed budgets, completion dates and thoughtful critiques on the designs. Of the Keoulu Hills park in progress: “Interesting way to build up the transitions – looks like it’ll be solid cement when it’s done. Some sections are rumored to be as high as 6 feet. Like Millilani, no use of molds – yeah!

The crisp Web resource, started in 1996, receives an incredible 1 million page views per month (says 50-50.com).

“It’s great that the city is building these parks. The sad part is if the city is going to spend half a million dollars on some of these projects, they should get professional skatepark designers to design them,“ (says 50-50.com) which mentions specialists like Seattle-based Grindline Inc. “it’s difficult to convince them, because the city doesn’t want to step on the toes of their regular contractors.”
