Light the tree trunnel for the holidays
Too late for this year, but wouldn’t it be great if the Tunnel of Trees was lit up for the holidays? Perhaps a civic or service groups (or even KIUC with a mobile solar array and batteries) could consider this for a future year. It would be quite a sight.

Quarantine, testing is only solution
As our daily cases rise with the omnicron variant, I always look to see how many cases are visitors vs. residents and they are consistently primarily residents who appear to be too selfish and uncaring about the community or their ‘ohana to do the right thing after traveling, like quarantine and test.
You know who you are and this applies to each and every one of you who is contributing to the case count rising on Kaua‘i.
It is totally self-serving behavior that you cannot take a test three days out or procure an accurate home test to use and try to stop this current surge instead of just merrily going on your way after traveling because you don’t think these guidelines should apply to you or that anyone will catch you.
‘Tis the season to stop, think and take a good long look at your actions.
As for our visitors — yes, I believe they should be testing as well, and wish they would all come with accurate home tests or take a test after three to five days as well.
And a big mahalo to all of you who have the integrity and have been doing the right thing all along. If more of our small and special island operated this way we would not be in the situation that we are in now.
