When is something going be done at the school crosswalks?
It’s been years that parents and staff at Waiakeawaena have been asking for something to be done at the crosswalk on Kinoole Street by the school.
It’s a very dangerous street. I’ve seen so many close calls. Recently, a crossing guard almost got hit three times.
They need better signs and better lights, and it should be blue or red and bright so they can see. The yellow one ain’t doing it.
What about our police chief? For years they have been telling him and the mayor and County Council to do something. The police are here to protect and to serve, but they are not protecting our children and staff by not doing anything.
The crossing guards only can do so much. They have a dangerous job, and they should get more pay for what they do.
So, please do something now before someone gets hurt. This needs to be taken care of.
Hurry up and wait
On March 29, I received the latest county update on the road and waterline progress in lower Puna.
Disaster Recovery Officer Douglas Le said, and I quote, “As we look ahead to four years since the 2018 Kilauea eruption, we recognize how important this information is to communities who are still feeling the effects of this event.” And now the good part: “We are acting with urgency and diligence to move these investments in road and infrastructure forward.”
WOO-HOO! But wait, it gets better! Acting with “urgency and diligence,” they think they will finish upper Pohoiki Road by the third quarter of 2024! Six years after the eruption to open two-plus miles of Pohoiki Road.
Mayor Mitch Roth, my heart soars with the eagles seeing the efficiency you have brought to the Big Island, and I will look forward to the election also in 2024!

Yet another study
Regarding feral chickens (Tribune-Herald, April 6): It is the pigs that are digging up our yards, garden and farms.
And all the College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources is doing is “studying” the pig infestation.
