Natural turf should be left in place at stadium

The Arakawa administration is considering removing the natural turf at the War Memorial Stadium (The Maui News, Oct. 8). It will be a tragic mistake to replace it with artificial turf. This shortsighted approach will destroy the natural beauty of grass. College soccer will be a major attraction to our island.

Revenue? Fifteen thousand seats say yes. Do not destroy the unique atmosphere and playing experience not found in many places in our state.

Join me and others as we strive to save the grass.
