Truth be told on Letters of  dairy opposition on Kauai 

There have been a gargantuan number of letters  to the Garden Island news of opposition the last few years  of the proposed Hawaii Dairy Farm in Mahaulepu valley on Kauai's south shore. 

Is it just me or do most the letters of opposition if not all letters of oppositions  come from those
whose ancestors migrated to Kauai on Cruise ships and Commercial Airlines?

I don't remember seeing any Hawaiian names signed to those letters of opposition? I did read on April 5, on the forum page, Masaru Shirai's letter titled; "Dairy opposition protests are too much." Mr. Shirai sums things by  saying," I’m older and maybe not as akamai as those other writers. Just my reaction to folks moving to what was an agricultural island, not demanding that nothing of that sort come back."

The hipsters are always screaming we need to be more sustainable.  Why not more farms
 in lieu of more hotels and timeshares? Mr. Shirau also points out the flies go to where the stink is, so there shouldn't be a problem at the hotels. Councilman Kawakami said in a recent TGI opinion column  ""We are extremely dependent on imports and vulnerable to natural disasters and shipping disruptions."

Kauai dairy farms is one small step in our"Garden island's quest on becoming sustainable. The proposed dairy is under a microscope to do things in a environmental and pono way.  

There are so many people whom are not farmers or engineers voicing "professional opinions" why the dairy won't work? 

 Kauai's reputation of saying "NO"
to every new idea hopefully becomes a Big Yes with the Dairy.

Let's remember the dairy man's motto and be kind to udders(sic) and give Kauai dairy farms some positive energies!
