Highway looks much better since coral graffiti removed
In her letter in West Hawaii Today on May 30, Sue Johnson wants the coral opala (graffiti) to remain so she can enjoy the so-called “coral art along the highway.”
There are other appropriate ways to recognize loved ones or special occasions other than claiming a stretch of highway as your personal billboard. The suggestion to add more “imaginative words of affirmation,” unfortunately, is to ignore responsible stewardship of this roadway.
I agree with Richard Revheim’s letter, which ran the same day, that the Queen Kaahumanu Highway is a much more beautiful sight now that others have removed a great deal of the opala. The improvement is befitting of our queen, whose name graces this beautiful highway.
Mahalo to those who have taken the responsibility to restore this landscape to its natural state as much as possible.
Wake up to global warming before it’s too late
With all the terrible storms, floods and destruction happening all over the world, I’m glad the president is at least trying to reduce the carbon emissions in the states.
Why do certain states want to block his attempt? Would they rather their citizens lose their homes and lives instead?
All the industrialized nations should get on with this same plan or else we are all doomed.
In the past few years, we have seen more storms, forest fires and flooding than ever before. Those who deny that global warming is a reality have their heads in the sand. Glaciers are melting and the sea levels are rising. Wake up everyone before it’s too late.
