Library hours are just fine

I’m writing this in response to the complaints about the changed library hours. First of all, those of you who use the library at Kealakekua had the opportunity to vote for several schedule options. The present schedule received the majority of the votes.

There was recently a complaint that people did not want to travel the 9.5 miles from Kailua-Kona to Kealakekua to visit a library. That person seems to have forgotten those of us who live in Hookena or Ocean View who are not complaining.

My advice to the people who are not happy with the Kealakekua or Kailua-Kona library hours: Plan your week better and appreciate the services they provide at little or no cost to us.

Blaming the staff for hurting your feelings is very inappropriate. The staff at both libraries are very helpful and friendly, especially Kealakekua.

If you don’t appreciate what you have. It may be taken away.

Book crosses ethical line

I am livid (to say the least)! You’d be, too, after reading Saturday’s WHT front page article, “Profiting off Peter Boy?”

Peter Boy died during Ms. Koller’s watch. And she capitalizes on his death? Has she no shame? No feeling of responsibility? No sadness? No guilt? To paraphrase, does she have a heart so small that it can fit in a gnat’s navel and still have room for a caraway seed?

Ms. Koller says it’s legal. Really? But is it moral? Ethical?

Haven’t Peter Boy and his siblings been violated enough? They deserve better. Let Peter Boy rest in peace.
