Fire makes it obvious that alternative route is needed

If ever there was a reason to get an alternate route in and out of Kihei, this fire has certainly made that fact obvious to everyone.

And, instead of connecting Haliimaile to central Kihei, the road should go from Wailea to Kula. Sorry, Kula, but your “Upcountry lifestyle” is not more important than the safety and well-being of the thousands of South Maui residents.
