'Hawaiian Fishing Camp' by D. Howard Hitchcock

You probably know someone who lives to eat instead of the other way around...but for people who really do regard natural resources as their means of eating to live, how they do that may get some help. A House bill to create community subsistence fisheries will be heard tomorrow in the Senate Water and Land committee and while that might sound like something the State Department of Land and Natural Resources would get behind, DLNR is in fact leading the opposition. Alton Miyasaka is the Acting Commercial Fisheries Program Manager with the Division of Aquatic Resources.

The GOP Presidential process gets even uglier...Bernie Sanders surprised Hillary Clinton in Michigan last week and could do it again today in Ohio. Vladimir Putin surprised even his allies by announcing a pull-out in Syria; and the mystery of the week: a Russian nuclear missile submarine pops up off the coast of France. These are just a few of the issues moving through the mind of News Analyst Neal Conan.

Shakespeare has a special understanding of young love; in all its turbulent emotion and it didn’t always have to end badly. Much Ado About Nothing has long been one of his most popular plays because these star-crossed lovers get to have happy endings, with plenty of comedic confusion along the way. Troy Apostol is directing a new production at Hawaii Pacific University.
