Case made for Fishpond
By MELISSA TANJI, Staff Writer
U.S. Rep. Ed Case made good Sunday morning on a promise to return to Ko’ie’ie Loko I’a in Kihei and lay stones with those rebuilding the ancient fishpond.
Stepping out of the neatly pressed suit and tie he’d wear as a member of Congress, Case put on surf shorts, heavy-duty boots and a long-sleeved shirt that said, “Revitalizing a wall; Revitalizing a Culture.” He pitched in with more than 10 others carrying, stacking and sorting through rocks to be added to the wall of the royal fishpond.
