A6 HAWAII HONOLULU STAR-BULLETIN WEDNESDAY, MARCH 19, 2003 24,000 acres of protected land named on Molokai The acreage for rare plants is down from the proposed'43,000 By Plana Leone dleonestarbulletin.com . In announcing yesterda,1 tnat n,iSS acres of land on Molokai will be named critical habitat for endangered plants, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service continued its trend of downsizing the acres on each island that it gives that designation. The original proposal last year identified 43,532 acres on Molokai as potential critical habitat. Based on new information received during the public-comment periods or gathered during field visits, areas that do not provide the habitat needed by the species or are not essential for their conservation were eliminated in the final rule, a Fish and Wildlife release said. A federal court order is requiring the agency to name critical habitats for endangered plants on each Hawaiian island. On Molokai, there are 41 threatened and endangered plants. Half the acreage designated as critical habitat-is privately held; the remainder is state land, except for three acres under National Park Service jurisdiction. "Thirty-five of these plant species are found on other Hawaiian islands in addition to Molokai," said Paul Henson, field supervisor for Fish & Wildlife's Pacific Islands office. "In some cases, we were able to eliminate areas proposed for critical habitat status on this island because better habitat for the plants exists elsewhere." Copies of the final rule were published in yesterday's edition of the Federal Register, which is available at the Fish & Wildlife Service Web site, paci-ficislands.fws.gov.

HCG Carpentry students renovate a temporary home for 3 programs By Rosemarie Bernardo rbernardostarbulletin.com ? Honolulu Community College carpentry students will replace termite-eaten doors, fix water-damaged ceilings, and patch and paint walls to give a temporary new home to three programs of the Waikiki Health Center. Thirteen students and their Klnstructor provided free labor yesterday and plan to complete renovations to the two-story building at Kuhio Avenue and Kaiolu Street in Waikiki tomorrow.
