Letters to the Editor: September 8, 2020

Common sense is not so common

So, let me see if I have this straight. I can meet up with nine of my friends and go to a restaurant in Hilo and spend an hour inside eating and yappin’ it up with no mask, but I can’t park in the lot at Hapuna or Mauna Kea beaches and go take a swim and then sit on my chair alone. Makes perfect sense. Hard to understand why folks are not obeying such common sense rules?

Where’s Linda?

Dear Linda, we miss you! Where are you Linda Lingle? Hawaii needs you!

Pole update

Thank you very much, Hawaiian Telcom, for removing the leaning utility pole this morning. We can now breathe easier whenever we drive by the site. Thank you, also, to HECO and West Hawaii Today.
