We all have different feelings about cane burning, but to bring it up with the governor and staff? Well, that's up to you.
I really do think they were looking for more important things than how a handful of replants (Mainlanders) and your local complainers feel.
Anything they can grumble about. It's the same people holding signs from Monsanto to HC&S, to mega-malls not in Kihei.
I'm waiting for them to pick on Target. Maui is becoming like a retirement island for Mainlanders. Can't they just go with the flow?
One hundred forty years in business and you saying that they are wrong?
Only now it's wrong? Where were you 100 years ago or even 50 years? Back in the big city breathing carbon monoxide and other toxic chemicals in the air.
We have trade winds to take the smoke away. It's not going to hang around for months like the smog in the big cities.
I hope you don't take this as offensive. It's just my opinion. Blame the person who sold you your dream home for not informing you on this cane burning situation. You could win with a good lawyer.
