Follow the rules or stay home
Regarding Alice Sherer’s March 10 letter to the editor, she was only trying to educate the young girl without a mask while shopping in Target. Some visitors are not used to wearing masks where they come from, but while they are visiting, they need to respect and follow Hawaii rules or else stay home.
In this case, Target posts notices requesting wearing a mask while in their store. Possibly, this girl was uneducated and unable to read and understand the sign. With this in mind, visitors should not let their little children go shopping without adult supervision. This should also be the case when visitor children are with their parents, but are allowed to run wild around the store. With this girl’s snotty reply “Thanks mom” showed that she didn’t care about Hawaii rules.
Next time, little immature girl, stay home with your mommy. Since we weren’t present when this occurred, we can only guess that the young girl was not really a little girl but was an adult acting like a child and just didn’t care about Hawaii rules and should not have come to Hawaii in the first place. When visitors come to Hawaii, you are not privileged people that can do as you please, if not, simply please don’t come to Hawaii.
The ball is in the EPA’s court
At a March 16 public meeting in Pahala, the homeowners who are on Hawaii County’s illegal gang cesspool were given a Hobson’s choice by the Department of Environmental Management. The administration’s only solution for EPA compliance is to put little gizmos into people’s backyards. The department is hopeful that these new-age chamber pots will get the federal government off the mayor’s back.
“A pot in every yard” is the county’s latest promise.
The ball is now in the EPA’s court. What will happen when it hits the fan?
