I am a retired airline pilot of 25 years, father of two amazing young men, and grandpa of a beautiful little girl.
I was appalled to discover there is a sexually graphic book in the children’s section in many of Hawaii’s libraries, including Hawaii State Library, Hilo Public Library, Lihue library and many more!
This book is entitled, “Let’s Talk About It: The Teen’s Guide to Sex, Relationships, and Being a Human (A Graphic Novel).”
This book not only describes sex acts but graphically shows cartoon images of minors in both hetero and gay sex positions!
I remember having to be 18 years old to get a “Playboy,” and now a 10-year-old and younger can check out a graphic novel at the local library. This is not OK!
When do morals and protecting our keiki come into play?
When children are exposed to sex too soon, it affects who they become and the kinds of intimate relationships they have. Books like this only confuse children who cannot truly comprehend what they are reading and the images they are looking at.
What happened to the standards of what books are allowed in our public libraries? Who is in charge of putting these sexually explicit books on the shelves for our keiki, and why?
As a father and grandparent, I feel the parent is responsible for educating their children about sex. I believe the library should have a section where parents can check out books about sex and share it with their keiki as they see fit.
However, in this book, the pictures are cartoons of children performing sex acts which each other, and that is not appropriate. It is like child pornography, which is illegal!
Because of that, this book should be taken out of all Hawaii libraries immediately!
I wasn’t able to attend the recent Puna Geothermal Venture meeting, but from the information I just received, PGV and Hawaiian Electric are grasping at straws.
Recently, they had an average output of 18 megawatts and somehow believe adding three more wells will increase production output. It all comes from the same source, so where do they get get the idea that three more wells in the same limited area well field will provide an increase in production?
That would require an increase in magma, which doesn’t appear to be happening.
We have had a population explosion from the continent, probably where they have geothermal and believe it’s the same here as there.
Where there are geysers, it’s a natural phenomena, whereas here in Puna it’s unnatural.
There, they rely on the planetary tectonics to generate steam, but here cold water must be forced onto hot rock.
When the foreign-owned corporation lobbied the U.S. government, they claimed it was clean, green and sustainable. Clean does not release hydrogen sulfide and a number of other toxic subterranean gasses. Green would not require pentane in any stage of production, and sustainable means they could provide a continuous level of power necessary to supply a good share of the island.
Depending on nature to do what you want nature to do for you is risky at best. Then there’s the fragile East Rift Zone that PGV depends upon for permeability. Without going into further detail on that, look up the Hilina Slump.
