Fewer crosswalks are needed in Waimea
Waimea here on Kauai is known as the “walking town.” There are approximately eight crosswalks on Kaumualii Highway through Waimea. This causes a problem in the early evening hours for drivers traveling east and west. It brings traffic to a slow crawl. Some drivers are complaining that it takes too long for them to get home from Kaumualii Highway from Kekaha to their home in Waimea.
State DOT and Mayor Kawakami, is there any way we could lessen the amount of crosswalks through Waimea town?

Island is a part of this visitor
Kauai is part of me.
It has become a significant piece of my very core.
When I am not there, it rests quietly inside my being like a comfortable garment, waiting to be taken up once again, to be embraced and admired.
The memories of its beauty bathe my soul just as the joyous waterfalls wash over the craggy mountainsides. I am warmed with the memories of the sensations of the hot dancing sands, penetrating sun, and refreshing showers, as I long for the rhythmic surf. The beauty of this island is reflected in the people I encounter, with their friendliness and sparkle of vitality.
How I love it.
