Wednesday, April 05, 2006 reveals historical background behind proposed $50 million tax credit for race track

In an article dated Wednesday 04/05/2006, investigative reporter Ian Lind reviews some of the background behind the proposed $50 million tax credit for a racetrack in Leeward Oahu that did not appear in the Honolulu Advertiser story two days earlier:
History lesson: It's important to recall that this is an issue that's been around for at least 15 years and surrounded by controversy and politics for that entire time. Before spending $50 million on the fantasy of an international racing center in Hawaii, it's useful to get at least a little historical perspective.
This review also highlights the value of strong investigative reporting. What fits in a simple daily newspaper article may not be all that readers need to know.

Thanks to Ian Lind for this coverage of wheeling and dealing, politics, dirt racing and disappeared news.
