Poison drop could hurt environment

Please, please, please, do not do the planned aerial poison drop on Lehua!

Everything in the environment is connected. Another island recommended banning fishing for over 900 days after a similar program!

Our environment is everything!

Stop the insanity of poisoning land

We have to stop this poisoning of our land. It appears only robots following orders could do such a thing. There is nothing about it that makes sense. Would anyone want to live near or be a part of this atrocity? Would the people ordering this be willing to live, fish and swim here? Fear is killing all of the life on this planet, and this drop of chemicals in the tons is just more of the same. This makes no sense at all and will only result in suffering. Please stop this insanity of poisoning ourselves out of fear.

Thank you and I hope you will look inside to see what makes sense and let’s take back our lives.

Highway work short-sighted

Can someone please explain to me what our precious highway tax dollars are being wasted on in regards to the project on Kaumaulii Highway just past Tree Tunnel? Probably a better question is who on earth scheduled this project in the middle of the work day in the middle of summer?

There are several resurfacing jobs going on right now, but they are all being done at night with minimal disruption of traffic. On my trip today, traffic was backed up all the way to the Kauai Humane Society and on my way out of town it took me 30 minutes to get from Kukui Grove to KCC. That ain’t right.

I don’t know who scheduled this work, but it goes beyond short-sighted and rises to Trumpian in its incompetence. Can someone please explain this to me? I am sure that I am not alone when it comes to wanting answers on this.

Allan B. White, Hanapepe
