LIHU`E, KAUA`I (Ben Caxton) — If you’re in Kaua`i Mayor Derek Kawakami has a new “Emergency Rule” for you to remember. In Honolulu, the Mayor is busy searching for a solution to problems caused by an emergency order of his own closing cloth stores now that he suddenly finds himself in need of masks, all the while state government is getting together to find a way out of the maze of new laws, proclamations, and emergency orders to start life back on a track to normal. Emergency order #6 from Kawakami now requires anyone age five and older to wear a cloth mask in public. Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell actually has the city government spending time figuring out how to allow people to buy the materials they need to make cloth masks. While they were in less demand before the pandemic, it seems certain buying the materials was never an issue before, so why now? Classification issues in the city’s stay-at-home law apparently. Unemployed workers at business arbitrarily shut down wait for government help. And while Mayors fiddle creating solutions to the myriad of problems of the own making just as talks begin about how to lift stay-at-home-orders. They may have just stumbled on a viable solution – getting rid of them and trusting people’s common sense.
