Why you should get behind I-732 | Letter

  • Jul 13, 2016 at 12:00PM

I loved Bill Severson's letter of June 15 urging us to support Initiative 732 to fight climate change and save the planet for our children and grandchildren. And kudos to state Sen.

I've never seen so many seemingly intelligent adults walking and riding bikes on the incorrect side of the road as I do here on the Island.
