The project came in 25 percent over budget and completion was delayed by six months, but Waialae Avenue in Kaimuki is finally repaved. How do you feel about Mayor Kirk Caldwell's goal to repave 300 lane miles every year through 2017? Let us know by sharing your thoughts: http://on.kitv.com/1jiwT7Y

The state is poised to adopt new administrative rules for surf schools across the state. On Oahu's North Shore, some say the situation at select spots like Chun's Reef has grown dangerous. Is this the right call by the state, or too much regulation? http://on.kitv.com/1pPBzVI

The Kulani Correctional Facility on the Big Island is ready to receive inmates after reopening Tuesday. Gov. Neil Abercrombie says the prison's rebirth is another important step forward in his Justice Reinvestment Initiative, which aims to reverse crime while bringing inmates housed on the mainland back to The Islands. However, not everyone is happy with the state's use of Kulani. Full details: http://on.kitv.com/1qn37Q8

Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell has outlined plans to battle homelessness with what he calls "compassionate disruption." The mayor wants to increase the pressure on those who are living on city streets while finding them permanent shelter. Tell us what you think about the mayor's plan? http://on.kitv.com/1pjnKu1

The Honolulu City Council has kept alive five bills that some say target the homeless. The measures would make it illegal to lie down on sidewalks and bans public urination and defecation. The major difference between the bills is whether they apply only to Waikiki, or island-wide. Let us know what you think about these proposals: http://on.kitv.com/1oJ5V8H

It's true! Honolulu's HPower plant at Campbell Industrial Park is suffering from a shortage of trash. The plant needs 3,000 tons of garbage every day, but has been averaging about 2,200 tons. Was the $302 million investment for a third boiler at HPower worth it? Check out the details and sound off: http://on.kitv.com/1sTh8s1

Was it an act of illegal dumping, or an act of desperation by the driver of a dump truck? KITV4 tracks a pile of fill material that was left on a vacant lot in Kalaeloa last Friday. The land is controlled by Hunt Companies Inc., which plans on filing charges against the hauling company. Details: http://on.kitv.com/1mUo9Ai
