Two years ago, a brutal tsunami ripped through northern Japan. That same wave damaged parts of the Big Island.

HPR's Sherry Bracken has an update on recovery issues.
One of the most noteworthy telescopes atop Mauna Kea is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. There are several events on the Big Island--from a scientific conference to fundraisers to a free open house. From Hawaii Island, HPR's Sherry Bracken tells us more.
Kilauea Volcano is marking more than one anniversary this year. January was the 30th anniversary of the East Rift Zone Eruption. And this month, it is five years since the main Kilauea Crater started erupting after a pause of 45 years. From the Big Island, HPR's Sherry Bracken tells us more.
Governor Abercrombie spent part of the day Wednesday on the Big Island. He talked with residents about several issues of local concern--including the plans for the oft-discussed Honokohau Harbor. HPR's Sherry Bracken was there and has this report.
This year, a Hawaiian-themed public charter school will host the second annual Puna 'Ulu Festival--but this year, they've expanded their focus beyond breadfruit. From Hawaii Island, HPR's Sherry Bracken explains.
