Support doctor during trying time

This letter is in support of my dear doctor, Dr. Clifton Arrington. I am one month away from my 88th birthday and I don’t believe I would be here, and as totally healthy as I am, if it had not been for the care I have had from Dr. Arrington.

He is a thorough doctor. The last time I visited him with a stomach ailment, he ran all my blood work, and he gave me nutritional advice, which I followed. When I returned to his office, he read the results of my tests. He gave me a clean bill of health.

I read in the newspaper that he is being accused of being fraudulent with prescription writing. I do not believe that Dr. Arrington has a fraudulent bone in his body.

Dr. Arrington cares for his patients and he has always advocated a healthful lifestyle for all his patients.

A lot of my elderly friends have died from mixing too many prescription drugs. This would never happen to me under Dr. Arrington’s care. I am thankful for having Dr. Arrington as my doctor.

If you are a patient of his and feel the same way, I ask you to send a letter of support to his office at 79-7266 Mamalahoa Hwy, Ste 3, Kealakekua, HI, 96750. A doctor who has been at our sides for so many hard-working years deserves our support.

Invitation to Mr. von Platen Luder and community

There are at least a few letters submitted disparaging the state of education, teachers and our schools. My answer to all of them is get involved!

For all those who wish to do something besides badmouth our educational system, Kealakehe High School’s School and Community Council meeting will be at 6 p.m. Sept. 19. The meeting is held in the library. It is a forum for the community to hear what the school is doing and make your concerns heard to the school’s administration.

This meeting represents the 20th year for the high school and we are in the process of examining what the next 20 years should look like for the largest school on the island. Without community involvement the school will be deprived of vital ideas, concerns and energy necessary to provide the best possible education for the community’s youth. Hope to see you there.
