The righteous must stand firm

This is in regards to the bathroom law that was passed in North Carolina.

I applaud the state of North Carolina for passing a common sense law, that would protect our children, daughters and sons. Only predators like to take advantage of these idiotic ideas that it would be OK for the opposite sex to share the same bathroom.

I am appalled how some of our politicians and famous known athletes and other companies decide to boycott the state North Carolina for standing firm on common sense righteousness.

It is not surprising when same sex marriage was allowed, that most homosexual groups will continue to push their agenda until America mirrors Sodom and Gomorrah.

Pray for common sense.

What’s the plan for Kapaa traffic in case of tsunami?

I have one question I would like someone from Civil Defense or Kauai Police Department to answer.

If the warning siren blows and there is a 45-minute warning about a tsunami from the Big Island going to hit, and I’m at the Safeway shopping center during the Kapaa crawl traffic hours, is there a plan in place to put officers at intersections to move traffic up the hills, and to keep people from stopping at the top (like by the falls) to watch the event?

Because if there isn’t such a plan, I will be washed away. It can take 45 minutes without people panicking.

Someone please tell me the plan to get us out of Kapaa traffic and to a safe place in less than 45 minutes, and then perhaps lets use some of those methods on a daily basis to improve traffic flow.

Kris Van Dahm, Kapaa
