Signs of bridge were there

I just read the (Oct. 3, TGI) headline about the bridge. I cannot see how Ms. Hayward was surprised. Last May I took some visiting relatives up to that area. I have not been there in over a year. We crossed the stream in their rental car and parked in the area to walk around and tour. In plain sight in the parking area was a huge mass of prefabricated metal framing. My cousin and I discussed it and agreed that it looked like they were going to build a bridge across the stream.

Kapaa center valuable to seniors

Closing the Kapaa community center and turning it into a police station is a terrible idea which will hurt our seniors directly.The proposed alternative site is inferior in every way and has no bus service at all, adding to the hardship many poorer orphysically impaired seniors will face if this proposal is realized.

Seniors are very good at one thing though — better than any other age group — and that is voting! Any politician, particularlyones representing the Eastside, should beware the consequences of supporting this anti-senior action.

Chief Perry’s explanation that this was not the KPD’s idea won’t help when the disaffected citizens see the KPD occupyingtheir beloved community center.
