Truth is there are only 2 genders

I’m writing this for those who know the TRUTH but afraid to speak out.

There are only TWO genders, male and female. Period. And that’s from true science. So why are our schools, businesses, politicians and, sorry to say, some fake churches and fake Christians pushing the BIG LIE?

The big lie is that it’s OK if you’re a boy, you can be a girl, and if you’re a girl, you can be a boy. That’s not only confusion, that’s a lie. Speak to your children the truth, because the truth will set them free.

Jones Act is ‘archaic’ legislation

How does the Jones Act help the cost of living here?

The stranglehold of Matson,, only inflates the cost of living for everyone.

The original premise of the Jones Act was to protect us from foreign ship companies.

Since then we now have air freight coming in from all over the globe. So, the Jones Act premise is no longer reasonable. Yet Matson,, have no competition.

Goods from Asia must go to mainland and be reshipped here. That only raises the cost of goods here. Now in this high inflationary period is the ideal time to help any way we can. Hopefully our representatives in Washington D.C. can step up for their people and get rid of this archaic policy.

More parking needed at Lihu‘e Airport

On June 18, 2022, I traveled to O‘ahu for my son’s (Levi) memorial service. My departure time was at 6:15 a.m.

While going around in the paid parking lot several times, I found that there wasn’t any open space. So I went the exit point to speak to the attendant to ask where else could I park.

At the exit point the attendant hollered for me to go through the exit and closed the door behind her (which was rude!). When I walked up to the door to ask where to park, she said, “we opened up the employee’s spot.” With that said, after wasting much of the time, it made me late for check in at Southwest Airlines that I had to catch the next flight out (at 9:15 a.m.)

We need another parking level at the Lihu‘e Airport. Also, it would have helped if there was a sign saying, “Parking Lot is full, go to the employee’s spot and park.”

Build UH-Kaua‘i at Coco Palms site

I read last week in TGI that there was to be a meeting regarding the “future” of the derelict Coco Palms on Zoom. Sorry, but I’m not a Zoomer. So I’m hoping TGI will print my idea for the future use of that land.

I think an extension of the University of Hawai‘i should be built there, like the one in Hilo. That way Kaua‘i’s families won’t have to send their children off island, incurring enormous expenses unnecessarily.

Also, people who are working here can keep their jobs and still complete their college education. Since it is a large tract of land, a dormitory can also be built to house students who would prefer to live on Kaua‘i instead of O‘ahu.

A bus stop could be added there, but since that area is so close to shops folks will be able to walk to restaurants and grocers — even to the beach. If others reading this agree with my proposal, I hope you, too, will write or find another way to contact those in charge to voice your opinions. Mahalo.
