Advertiser reports action in Chinatown rat situation

by Larry Geller

This sounds like a very positive response—provided vendor participation can somehow be made mandatory. The Advertiser breaking news reports Chinese chamber, health department create task force to tackle rat problem.

"We need to take the time to re-educate Chinatown's merchants of the sanitary standards the state has for their establishments and deliver the message in a way they can understand," said Dennis Hwang, Chinese Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii president, in a news release.

This may be a successor to the educational program highlighted by KITV yesterday, State Rejects Rat Plan For Chinatown Market.

The question of adequate inspections still remains and cannot be replaced by an educational program, especially one that is voluntary or only held now in reaction to the publicity..
