Please, clean the restrooms

We are here the second time visiting your beautiful island. The people who we met are nice. There are many nice places, but unfortunately the public restrooms are filthy in many parks. We like to go out on a boat from the Kukuiula Small Boat Harbor. There are shelters and grills there too, but the restrooms are a disaster. They are not cleaning them. Some days the cleaning person replaces the toilet paper, but leaves all the dirt, feces and urine there. The toilet in one of the booths was blocked up for days and nobody repaired it.

One hour ago I took some pictures of the ladies restroom that has been disgusting, but nobody cares. I am sending to you, so that you can see. This is what the many tourists see.

Why don’t you take care of your beautiful island? Don’t let Kauai go down the drain. In my country, the cleaning person would be fired for this. Maybe his boss, too.

I read about your Shadow columnist. Why don’t you ask Da Shadow to go to Kukuiula Harbor and see it with his own eyes, but be careful because there are people there with pitbull dogs and no leash. We really would like to come back again. Please make Kauai really nice.

Nina Ulyanova, Macedonia

Appreciate column on development

Thank you, Gary Hooser, for your spot-on history lesson and Grove Farm’s role in the development of our island as you wrotein the Aug. 30 TGI Forum.

Can you imagine what Grove Farm could do for our island if they were to cultivate and process hemp and hemp productsinstead of tourism?

Thanks again.

Allan White, Hanapepe

Too much growth not good

I totally agree with Larry Arruda’s column of Aug. 31. Unbridled growth on a small island is madness. Major airlinesapparently dictating there will be an over 40 percent increase in flights into Lihue in 2018? Who’s in charge here?

Let’s try a new direction for Kauai

For 30 years I have watched Kauai change. More is not better. So those of you who think this is the wrong direction, you electthe same people over and over and expect a better Kauai.

Planning and zoning is backward, upside-down, and seems to not care one bit about the land.

David Cooper, Lihue
