Great news...but i'm sure they will set their sights on new territory and its people to exploit. Sad.

Would they have done it without the threat of a law suit? I don't think so.

DOLE should do more than just abandon their MESS. They need to restore the park. Greedy b*stards.

Wouldn't it have been wonderful, if Dole had made this decision on their own, without a threat of a lawsuit?
