Great season, Kapaa Warriors
As a disabled veteran from the Vietnam War era and a supporter of the Second Amendment, I appreciate the support of Rosa’s Arms LL. However, the picture of the AR15, in my opinion, is in poor taste.

Don’t ignore Hawaiian history
On Wednesday, Nov. 28, I celebrated Hawaiian Independence Day with a Native Hawaiian warrior.
How sad that our only newspaper didn’t say one word about that great day in 1843. Shame on The Garden Island for its willful omission, or was it ignorance of the history and the big picture in the fake state? Whatever the excuse, it is inexcusable!
Instead, the front-page headline story was about the continuing genocide of government forces evicting a homeless Hawaiian in his native land.

New mayor, please fix long lines
It’s 2019. You would think by now we would have satellite city halls like real counties.
Yesterday the line was backed up to the door. I left and came back two hours later. It was half that size and only three clerks working.
As I stood in line for one hour, I told the 85-year-young woman with her cane behind me to come lean on the pillar. An elderly lady in front of me was doing yoga stretches to keep circulation in her feet. Three guys behind me was someone in his 90s and he got a swivel chair for the first lady. Then he sat in it because she was falling asleep.
I made four new friends and luckily everyone was in the holiday spirit with a sense of humor so we joked and laughed for an HOUR. Others were conversing in groups also to pass the time to get our minds off of what the heck is really going on around here.
So whoever is in charge now after winning this election, don’t just shrug it off and turn a blind eye. Don’t pretend you didn’t read about this problem just now. Get on it and fix it now. Why wait?
