Professional driver knows about traffic
Mr. Tolbe. I am still a tour/narrator driver for a large and reputable tour company.
I have driven many times up and down the Waimea Canyon roads on and with the 57-passenger automatic and standard motor coaches as well as many mini buses.
I am a CDL driver with tanker, brake and passenger endorsements, and am very well aware of the traffic, not only at the canyon roads, but to the Moloa‘a beach, the difficult turnaround at the Wailua Falls, where cars are parked whatever whichways, to the Hanalei park on the mini buses, and to wherever I am assigned to drive to.
FYI, I am a retired Lihu‘e Airport state firefighter who operated and drove the most state-of-the-art types of fire apparatus for 25 years.
No, I don’t only stay at home reading the newspaper on line at my retirement age, as I am computer illiterate, and rarely or hardly know how to use it. I purchase and have TGI delivered to my home instead.
Whenever I read people writing things that I feel are against my beliefs, I am quick to respond, good or bad, true or not.
In your case, I felt that your letter had some discrepancies. We may say things without any substantial backing.
I am responding because you asked if I have driven up the canyon at peak hours? Yes, I have, and more other places.
Ray Domingo, Lihu‘e
Kaua‘i should ban Roundup
Many nations have banned Roundup, which abundant research proves causes cancer. Kaua‘i can also ban Roundup.
Research published in Environmental Sciences Europe shows primarily female rats eating Roundup or Monsanto’s genetically modified (GMO) Roundup-resistant NK603 corn grew massive tumors and had higher mortality rates than male rats eating the same.
A meta-analysis published in Mutation Research/Reviews in Mutation Research found Roundup exposure increases non-Hodgkin lymphoma cancer by 41%.
By eating organic and non-GMO foods from the supermarkets like Safeway, we can avoid exposure to carcinogenic Roundup.
A study published in Plos One by Kaua‘i scientist Dr. Carl Berg found Roundup in Kaua‘i’s honey, especially near the west biotech agriculture operations and near Kaua‘i’s golf courses where the bees pickup Roundup and transfer it to their honey.
It should be noted the Pfizer and Moderna COVID vaccines are the first vaccines to be activated by mRNA. These vaccines build on the breakthroughs of the gene-editing technology known as CRISPR used by brilliant scientists at Monsanto and Corteva.
However, Kaua‘i should ban Roundup in the same way (former state Department of Education) Superintendent Christina Kishimoto, after hearing that Roundup was being used on some campuses, sent a memo to all principals stressing that herbicides are banned at Hawaii public schools.
Will Davis, Lihu‘e
Will hardly ever agree with your elitist east coast educational diatribes where you speak to us down here off the tip of your nose that you go on from time to time but hear hear this one you got right and it is based on real facts.
One slip up though today:
“It should be noted the Pfizer and Moderna COVID vaccines are the first vaccines to be activated by mRNA. These vaccines build on the breakthroughs of the gene-editing technology known as CRISPR used by brilliant scientists at Monsanto and Corteva.”
Does this statement not read to you as the same thing with GMO’s and how to protect yourself from it by buying non GMO foods/organic but hey let’s inject GMO’s right into ourselves and our poor KIDS via vaccines and to hell with the organic process of letting our own bodily immune system take on a 1% risk? It seems like a massive contradiction? I am sure this will elicit a massive editorial on the subject from you. Can’t wait!
Mr. Domingo, what is your beleifs? “Tourist not going to Center Stage to here you sing.”
Who made you a Profeesional Driver? Your driving expertise has nothing to do with the danderous condition dirving on narrow roads with full of tourist parking on the side or quarter of a lane in Koke’e.
You are missing the point of the letter!
