Write to keep post of­fice

The Garden Island - - Morning Briefing -

Aloha won­der­ful neigh­bors of Kauai! I was able to at­tend the com­mu­nity meet­ing ini­ti­ated by this won­der­ful man, Greg Shel­ton, of the US Postal Ser­vices. Also at­tend­ing, be­sides about 40 oth­ers, were the Hon­or­able Coun­cil Mem­ber Joanne Yukimura and the Hon­or­able Coun­cil Mem­ber Derek Kawakama, our next hon­or­able mayor.

What I took away from what speaker Shel­ton was gen­tly say­ing was that he wanted this com­mu­nity to save this post of­fice but that fur­ther ac­tion was needed to do that. Let­ters that in­cluded more than just the con­ve­nience of this post of­fice were needed, maybe as much as an­other 500 and that even though the co­conuts were great for pub­lic­ity and at­ten­tion, pos­si­bly choco­late cov­ered macadamia nuts that could ac­tu­ally be con­sumed by his boss and his boss’ boss might work bet­ter.

I got my Is­land Princess choco­late cov­ered macadamia nuts, which I think are the best, on the way home and will write an­other let­ter in­di­cat­ing my per­sonal at­tach­ment to this post of­fice for the last 20 years and the mem­o­ries it holds be­sides its great ac­ces­si­bil­ity for the dis­abled.

Please join me in writ­ing to: US Postal Ser­vice, Attn. Greg Shel­ton, 200 E. Ken­tucky Ave., Den­ver, CO 802099950 by Nov. 10. Again, by Nov. 10. Koko de Milo-Fytros Kauai
