I would like to take this opportunity to thank the people in charge for opening the Pahoa Village Road and mowing the grass on Pohoiki Road!
I know that it is a challenging time for Civil Defense, the Mayor, Health Department and the Department of Education responding to Pele on our beautiful island. In the spirit of love and caring for the residents of Pahoa affected by the actions of government in their response to Pele, I would like to remind those in charge that all the empty desks and chairs and stuff from school children sent to Keaau from Pahoa School are being stored in the Pahoa School gymnasium, and the children have not been able to access and use their gym normally since that was done several months ago. It is a sad reminder of their friends who had to move.
Also, there is a health and sanitary disaster that is the dump in the middle of Pahoa. It is absolutely revolting to the olfactory and auditory senses, not to mention the constant grinding of the compactors, the large trucks driving in and out, the fire trucks and ambulances moving in and out, the residents driving in and out, all of this happening right next to the skate park, swimming pool, county housing, farmers market, and through our narrow streets. There is a plethora of empty land in lower Puna, please move the stinky maggot-ridden dump right away!
The people of Pahoa deserve better.
