A public (online through Microsoft Teams) hearing is scheduled on June 17 (info at kauai.gov/iswmp) on Kaua‘i’s draft Integrated Solid Waste Management Plan. Comments are accepted at email@example.com through July 19. Here’s my comment: The ISWMP often ignores ‘aina.
It’s hard for people to understand there is more to life than pop culture, because that is the thing we are engaged in almost every minute of the day.
At midnight May 6, 2021 (actually it was 0-Dark-30, Friday morning of May 7) I sat in front of my PC awaiting the countdown. I had earlier roused myself out of bed to a chattering music alarm so that I could purchase three of the coveted 900 non-resident passes for some student interns doing their clinical training on Kaua‘i, to allow entry into Ha‘ena State Park so that we could spend the day hiking Hanakapi‘ai Trail and relax later at Ke‘e Beach.
After more than five months, the Kaua‘i War Memorial Convention Hall COVID vaccination clinic has closed its doors. From December through May, starting with 200 vaccinations per clinic and peaking at more than 700 vaccinations in a day, a total of 32,194 vaccine doses were administered to Kaua‘i residents.
