Kauai Bus should be on Iniki status
Am I the only one who thinks the Kauai Bus should return to Iniki status? After all, aren’t we in a disaster mode situation? Geesh, the Kauai Bus has been so high hung and should consider assisting instead of talking points meeting, budgeting transportation.
This idea should have been automatic, but then again, our council was making “use of a bull whip in public” unlawful, exactly at the time where beefalo were being rounded up and hauled off the reef and down the streets and beach of Hanalei Bay.
Our government reps’ imaginations are so far gone, I worry. When you vote in this election, please be mindful of who you are as opposed to who people want you to be.

Physician-assisted suicide bill should be repealed
What will it take to repeal Hawaii’s new law supporting physician-assisted suicide?
For humanity to evolve, we must relinquish violence which is rampant in our culture. Murder of others and murder of self are forms of violence.
Rather than contriving ways to remove people from the planet, we are invited to creatively and compassionately think of ways to support people on the planet.
Hawaii is a role model for “ohana” and “aloha” and family support; the exact opposite of physician-assisted suicide.
Having experienced the horrific suicides of two of my young adult nephews, I fail to understand why Hawaii’s new law is acceptable.
Our throw-away culture of convenience needs a wake-up call regarding the value of ALL life. If we humans are to advance as a species, we must give up all forms of violence, and reach out proactively to one another as members of a global community.
Please do yourself a favor and consider having an honest dialogue with your legislator about repealing the bill.
