Queen’s Bath visit put people in danger
The defense put forth by Sarah Hill and Rick Bundshuh illustrate a gross misunderstanding of what needs to be done with our youth of today. The Kauai Lifeguard Association while working in conjunction with the County Fire Department and Ocean Safety Bureau and Kauai Visitors Bureau has tried to dissuade all activity at Queen’s Bath, regardless of the time of year. One tidal change is all it takes on the flattest of days to get a broken leg, cracked spine or head injury. The County, KLA and community in general has communicated these potential dangers.
For a Christian group to thumb their nose at such efforts disturbs me. And then post your adventure on social media only encourages all to do the same thing — for the world to see! Yet it I feel it is actually the blind leading the blind because your excuses are worthless. We are “local.” We do more than just Queen’s Bath — we sit by the bedside of others never justifies the seeds you are planting in others when it comes to Queen’s Bath.
We’ve had more than 29 deaths over the years at Queen’s Bath…we’ve have countless rescues that have put our first responders lives in jeopardy because they have not paid attention to our warnings.
I hope this letter causes you not to turn the other cheek and take your group to Shipwreck Beach next week to illustrate how not to jump from the cliffs … at low tide.

Appreciate wallet being returned
Hey Bobby, read your letter in The Garden Island (about lost wallet being returned). Same thing happened to me. I dropped my wallet in the parking lot of Walmart and ladies turned it in to a cashier who held it for me. Thank you ladies! Please call me at 332-8546 or 652-4348. I want to thank you personally and show my appreciation.
