My family has been receiving your paper for years. My question to you is why are you always instilling fear about the viruses continually?
There is plenty of good news on our island that you could include, but the headlines are all about virus numbers and/or on occasion deaths, which is rare.
If this is the only way you can try to sell your newspaper, something is wrong.
Personally, I have over 50 friends and family on the Big Island, and at least 20 on Oahu who have gotten the virus and are fine — no deaths.
Why don’t you ever mention this, and the CDC facts show that only people who have other conditions are the ones who are having issues. These people have weak immune systems, are obese, have heart conditions, lung issues and just do not take care of their health.
Why don’t you let people know this? Fear is an ugly way to get people to buy your product.
Plenty of good information out there that you could mention to allow people to think about their unhealthy way of living. There is always going to be a virus spreading. Help people to understand, not cause panic.
Just my sincere thoughts. I think more people would purchase your paper if you truly shared the whole truth, not just nuggets here and there.
Thanks for reading this. We live in the most isolated inhabited island in the world. The chances of getting a virus is small. The chances of recovery are over 99%.
Let it flow
Open the Hilo Bay breakwater.
Hawaii has the largest number of cesspools and septic systems, per capita, as any other U.S. state. Unclean water will, with the help of huge amounts of rainfall, percolate through the lava substrate into Hilo Bay.
The Department of Health, Public Works and those who issue building permits need to be proactive in monitoring and enforcement, advocating strongly to clean up Hilo Bay.
Clean fish to eat and cultivating oysters would be great. Opening the breakwater would help. As we know, dilution doesn’t solve pollution.
