The name is historical; the nearby rec center has had the name since before the latest project began. (Why they didn't rename it is a different question.)

According to the article I found, the U.S. government developed the area as temporary housing for WWII shipyard workers, and the name honors "...a South Pacific World War II battle of dubious distinction."


I helped build the Habitat for Humanity homes that are part of the project, so I had several years to get used to the name.


Thanks, Gene!

Karen: I dunno -- a deal like that could have strings attached.

Mobile tampon applicator?
