Island Pork

“I am not against butchering pigs. But I am against being sold pork (or anything else) that says it is Island produced [when it is not]. I don’t like being duped. Support your local farmer!”—AN ONLINE READER FROM HILO

Want to read why pork can be labeled “Island produced,” even if the pigs are merely shipped in for slaughter? See our August 2008 story “Island Pork?” by Sheila Sarhangi.


Books in Kakaako

The Bookmobile is on Pohukaina Street between Coral and Keawe Streets, ewa of Mother Waldron Park. —MARLISE TELLANDER, VOLUNTEER, FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY OF HAWAII


That's how many times the 2008 Public Schools Database has been viewed at honolulumagazine.com.
