WHT Editorial: Mixed messages through the vog

Just read this on "west hawaii today" and wanted to share it with everyone.


And as Kilauea has been erupting since 1983, why are we figuring out now that county and state and federal and private air monitoring ratings are apples and oranges (and pears and bananas), prompting the need to switch to a uniform standard as the way to sync it up? That sounds like something abnormal caught us off guard.

Yes, please, pray we keep the economy going. We’re all in this together and we will rebuild together. Everyone is doing their part — government, tourism and other officials, tops among them.

But let’s call a spade a spade and not downplay this. Don’t blame national media — as has been done — for doom and gloom headlines that are giving the eruption an exaggerated wrap. This is a big deal and island life up and down is anything but relaxing and normal.
