The SB had an understated editorial about the proposal to split up Waimea Valley that reiterates the premise of one of my favorite recent books - Priceless, by Ackerman and Heinzerling. We can't put a dollar value on everything and if the political community wants to sustain what's left of the public's confidence then we need to start thinking about places like Waimea Valley as natural resources that have to be preserved. Perhaps the recently passed Legacy Lands bill that was touted by the environmental and business communities alike could be tapped for the first time?
