Accident victim promoted safe riding - Hawaii News

My heart-felt sympathy to the Souza Family and Friends with their loss of Eric Souza who seemed like one fine person. May you all find the strength to stay strong during this extremely emotional and difficult period, just as I'm confident Eric would have wished. May you all heal wholly in due time and become a closer family and grow stronger friendships. Aloha, o->  (Apr 29, 2009 | post #1)

Correa should work for officers' support - Editorials

Chief Boisse Correa has always held the best interest of the fine Honolulu Police officers as well as the public with paramount interest in safety and security. SHOPO is a great example of a LABOR organization that needs to WORK WITH =and= SUPPORT their department leader(s). Like so many LABOR unions that continue to decrease productivity with more 'member benefits' through their "gimme, gimme, gimme" mentality and NOT increasing work productivity that contributes to the Success of the department. Thank you Chief Correa for all that you have done and continue to try to accomplish in your current role.  (Apr 8, 2009 | post #10)

Pals pack alleged stabber's hearing - News

"Always think BEFORE you do ANYTHING." said my Momma. She may have received only as much as a 6th grade education (forced to quit school in the 1930's to take care of her younger siblings) but she still has a whole lotta Common Sense. Plain, simple, uncluttered.  (Feb 10, 2009 | post #62)

Marathon perseveres in face of sour climate - News

A marathonic Mahalo! to Honolulu Marathon Association president Dr. Jim Barahal and all the dedicated staff who help make this event possible! I am -so- looking forward to participating in it once again!!! "Food for Thought": Most people run a race to see who is fastest. I run a race to see who has the most guts." - Steve Prefontaine "I have met my hero, and he is me." - George Sheehan "We are different, in essence, from other men. If you want to win something, run 100 meters. If you want to experience something, run a marathon." - Emil Zatopek "I tell our runners to divide the race into thirds. Run the first part with your head, the middle part with your personality, and the last part with your heart." Mike Fanelli, running club coach "Running is the greatest metaphor for life, because you get out of it what you put into it." - Oprah Winfrey, talk show host and marathon finisher "Anybody can do just about anything with himself that he really wants to and makes his mind to do. We are capable of greater than we realize." - Norman Vincent Peale  (Dec 10, 2008 | post #3)

Marathon entries slack off - News

President Barahal, mahalo to you and your organization's time and effort expended to maintaining this terrific event! I completed my first marathon in last year's event and it has changed my life with continual positive outlook on my life, filled with a "can do" attitude! Wishing the Honolulu Marathon Association much success in the years ahead. I convey my hopes that the number of actual participants resurges and surpasses all records in Honolulu marathons to come! See you at this year's starting AND FINISH lines!  (Nov 25, 2008 | post #7)

U.S. attorney wants to keep post - News

Regardless of the outcome (which probably doesn't appear to be in his favour) I would like to thank Mr. Kubo for all his hard work in trying to keep Hawaii's population as federally law abiding people. I appreciate and admire his professionalism and tough, straight-forward, focused attitude. MAHALO, Mr. Kubo!  (Nov 7, 2008 | post #23)

Cirque takes flight - Features

I have tickets for the 2nd to the last performance as I'm waiting for a buddy to return from the mainland. A co-worker already saw it and told me it's breath-takingly beautiful, but was so sad to see so many vacant seats ... so c'mon Hawai'i, please try to support this venture and go see it if you're thinking about doing so. We are so fortunate to have an event like this come to Honolulu! It would cost so much more to go out of state to see a show like this!  (Nov 3, 2008 | post #5)

Isle tourism chief resigns - News

Here is a fine example why in a professional situation, personal culture needs to be in constant check. I do not personally know Mr. Johnson; he appears to have done an outstanding job for Hawaii's primary industry. On that note, I express my gratitude to him for helping to keep this stat's economic engine running. As we are not all perfect, I am supportive to Forgive a person for errs in their judgement (similary from politicians Sens. Donna Kim, Colleen Hanabusa and Clarence K. Nishihara and Rep. Jerry L. Chang) particularly in a first instance of poor work ethics. In Gassho, otoko.  (Oct 9, 2008 | post #15)

Police have no motive in transvestite's death

An argument escalated to its tragic finite consequence. "Everyone " seems to lose when it comes to violence -- the victim, Jason L. Namauu, and his alleged assailant, Joel Chris Allen, as well as their loved ones and friends -- as well as someone like myself touched by this event. So try to remember always to live each moment to its fullest, positively, with no regrets -- and Appreciate the goodness life can and does offer, that's why its called The Present.  (Aug 2, 2008 | post #6)
