Some things that make you wonder who’s leading: ?
It’s a shame that after two hurricanes we still don’t have underground utilities. Since the average utility bill is over $120 …
• Raises for the mayor? I don’t think so.
Too many local families out of work. Too many students without school supplies use the monies for them.
• Protect the coral reefs, not by a lot of so-called experts that are not from Hawai’i, PhDs from the mainland. Who are you trying to fool? It’s about you making money and the local man kanaka not being able to use the ocean, because of the tours you want.
Want to fix it, make more reefs, sink some old boats and old cars, kapu these areas for five years. Put them in 100 feet water outside Ahukini.
• Sierra Club-plant trees along the roads, stay out of Hawaiian affairs, kanakas’ business. You have no right to tell us what we can do or where we can hunt and what.
• Federal recognition: Good as long as we as a people are put on the endangered species list. Then our lands will be protected from quiet title. The turtle is more protected than us, and look at him. Everywhere he lands is protected, same as the seal. This could be first step to restore our nation through federal recognition.
• Too much traffic. How come? Roads not up to date, flow of traffic. Solution: $5 charge to rental car companies for use of roads-each car. Have this money stay on Kaua’i to upkeep roads and county parks.
• Restore all fish ponds and restock rivers and enforce laws about using car batteries in streams to shock fish o’opu, with loss of fishing rights.
• Stop using aloha that equates to dollars and stop using uhane as a means of making money. All the people you need to fix the mess are in Alu Like, Na Pua Noeau, kupuna projects, OHA and Liliuokalani Trust. Go to the source, the native people first, not someone not from Hawai’i. We not all lolo, even though you might think so.
