Come talk to your state legislators on Tuesday evening

This month KCA will present our three elected state legislators for South Maui, Sen. Roz Baker and Reps Kaniela Ing and Angus McKelvey, so this trio can give a report of the 2013 legislation session and answer a number of questions from the Association and the community. Sometimes the general public  forgets that we have two house districts in South Maui, but Ohukai is the dividing line between the 10th and 11th districts.

Everyone is welcome at the Kihei Charter Middle School 41 E. Lipoa behind the car wash on third Tuesday at 6:30 pm, June 18.

In addition we will have Kirk Surry from Grow Some Good for a brief follow up of the presentation the group offered back in March of 2012 (Remember the “Garden Party? http://www.gokihei.org/news/new-gardens-wiil-be-sprouting-across-south-maui ) There will also be  the monthly “sense  of place” segment,

The July 16 meeting with focus of two distinct issues, an upcoming detour off South Kihei Road for bridge construction and an update on the Honua’ula (formerly Wailea 670) proposed development.

Non perishable food donations are strongly encouraged for the ongoing Maui Food Bank drive. Doors open at 6:00 PM for pupu and talk story. More information call ( 508) 499-9996.

    One of the topics discussed was about the need for identifying more snorkeling areas as protected. The main answer that came back was, we need better education of our visitors. My suggestion is that someone produce a short education film and that the legislator require that this film be shown on every flight arriving in Hawaii. This would be a lot more meaningful than filling out the agriculature questionaire. Perhaps add a quiz at the end and if they don’t pass, they have to stand in the long exit line from the plane. Last part was a joke.
