Kauai needs to deal with waste

The only realistic and long-term win-win solution to Kauai’s waste issues is a waste-to-energy plant. The high temperature incineration burns clean, creates steam, drives turbans creates electricity and deals with our huge and growing volumes of waste. A model is the Spokane, Wash., facility.

A serious review, and then development is strongly indicated. A win-win for Kauai of effectively and safely dealing with waste and increasing clean electricity for our Island.

Thank you for gardening work

I just wanted to thank the gardening crew that seems to be maintaining the area surrounding the north side of the Hanalei bridge. I’m not sure who they are, but I just want them to know that it’s much appreciated.

Annette Surles, Princeville
