"THE SINGLES ISSUE," December 2005

HONOLULU Magazine’s guide to living single and finding love in Hawai’i.

It was inappropriate to include the Catholic Ministry for Single Adults with these other singles dating groups [in Sheila Sarhangi’s guide to singles’ resources, "In the Mood for Love?"]. Our Web site did not mean to give you the wrong impression. We do not care to be grouped with other dating organizations. [From CMSA’s Web site: The Catholic Ministry for Single Adults (CMSA) is a new, growing group of people living in Hawai’i who want to share their talents and experiences living as Catholics today. Our purpose is to be a Catholic organization in which single adults meet and support each other in fellowship and grow in faith by providing activities to challenge members spiritually, mentally and physically. By doing this members help each other grow at their own pace and the community also benefits by our encouragement of outreach programs, and seeing the demonstration of a Christian way of life by our actions. We operate on Catholic/Christian philosophies therefore membership is also open to non-Catholics.]

"The Honolulu 100," November 2005

Our November cover story was a joint project with the city and county of Honolulu’s Centennial Commission, in celebration of the city’s 100th birthday. We’ve asked readers to tell us who they felt should have been on the list.

I know that compiling the Honolulu 100 list was a difficult task and I applaud your efforts. I humbly submit the following names that would add further distinction to your list:

Herbert Cornuelle, a business and community leader. George Chaplin, a newspaper editor and community leader. Larry Vogel, a business leader and supporter of education and the arts. Dr. Fujio Matsuda, longtime president of the University of Hawai’i. Richard Lyman, trustee of the Bishop Estate and a Hawaiian leader.

Wesley Park, Honolulu

I can think of two or three people that I feel should be included: Clara Nelson ("Hilo Hattie"), her husband, Carlyle Nelson, and the other is Bob Krauss [a columnist at The Honolulu Advertiser]. I did enjoy reading the article very much. It brought back many memories of people that I have known and some that I didn’t know.

"40 Things Every Local Must Do," October 2005

After running our October cover story, we asked readers what activities we’d left off the list.

You have to get a glass ball from a Japanese fisherman’s net! It took me years to get one. When I finally saw one floating on the water, I went out into the ocean fully clothed to get it. I certainly wasn’t going to let somebody else on the beach get it after waiting all that time. Oh yeah, and then once you have it, you have to display it in your house, probably in the family room near the TV.
