    Hawaii breaks the ice...

    HONOLULU (AP) - A fire department hazardous materials team was
    called out Sunday after a bag suspected of containing
    asbestos-contaminated material was discovered in Wahiawa.
    Warnings printed on the clear plastic bag said it contained
    asbestos fibers.
    The bag was found by Carroll Cox, president of the environmental
    watchdog group EnviroWatch, along a private road off Kamehameha
    Highway.
    Cox said he suspected the bag was dumped by someone associated
    with a commercial asbestos abatement program who didn't want to pay
    the cost of disposing of it properly.
    Asbestos-contaminated materials are supposed to be disposed of
    in a landfill approved by the federal Environmental Protection
    Agency.
    The hazardous materials team cordoned off the area around the
    bag. Its contents was to be investigated Monday by state personnel.
