Change kupuna hours to Wednesday
I am 74 years old. This morning (Tuesday) I set out for Safeway in Kapa‘a, happy that they had instituted kupuna hours and hoping to find the shelves full.
The aisles were full of boxes as brave employees stocked as quickly as they could. The boxes meant that maintaining a six-foot distance was sometimes not possible.
The meat department had very low stocks, if any, as did the produce department.
While I very much appreciate the kupuna hours, I am sure we would all appreciate them much more if the days were changed to include Wednesday, when everything would be stocked. We would then be able to get what we need and get home as quickly as possible.
Mahalo nui loa.

Rice may be sold only to a chosen few
For two weeks I’ve gone to ‘Ele‘ele Shopping Center to purchase a bag of rice from Big Save, only to find there was no rice on the shelf.
Fast forward to today (March 23), again there was no rice on the shelf. I’ve observe the ‘Ele‘ele store manager handing rice from the back double door near the Poke Station to a couple.
And, furthermore, the same manager was observed by someone else (same situation) only with giving toilet paper.
Every customer is entitled to purchase items whether it’s on the shelf or in the back storage. And shelves should be well-stocked and items should not be hidden in the back for a manager to pick their customers of their choice to whom it would be sold to.

Please, Trump, do not rock boat
OMG. Trump “we will be back to work soon”…..
Thank God the Democrats got transparency and oversight on the “slush fund” for big business.
Thank God we have a governor and mayor and senators and representatives who support our rights to be/stay healthy. The $ will work itself out. This is not a local or American problem; it is a world problem. We are all in the same boat. Trump: don’t rock it!
