His plan to remove homeless campers who were illegally camping in county parks campers is a success, Mayor Bryan Baptiste said.
But, Baptiste said, he still has a lot of work to do to solve the homeless problem on Kaua'i.
"The process has worked wonderfully," said Baptiste in a statement handed out at a press conference Friday. "We will now be able to better address the peripheral problems in our parks, such as drug-related activities and underage drinking, with more clarity and focus."
"We had to take a strong stance with this, so people would focus on their situations and take steps toward making their life's decisions," the mayor said.

Moreover, all Muslims are required to forget their past differences and put behind them all their previous hostilities, prejudices and conflicts and turn over a new leaf. This is Islam, the religion of tolerance, lenience and charity.

A rewarding winter visit to Dead Horse Point
DEAD HORSE POINT -- No matter how many times you visit a familiar place, it seems as though something is always slightly different.
It might be the way the clouds play on the horizon, a spectacular sunset or new exhibits inside a visitor center or museum. But taking the time to visit an old favorite such as Dead Horse Point State Park always proves rewarding.
