Ladies and gentlemen of the class of 2012, if there was only one piece of advice I could give you to help your future it would be this: Be on time. Being the first person to arrive somewhere to assess the situation and stake out your spot is worth the down time while waiting for everyone else to arrive.
Dear Matthew DeKneef [former Weekly associate arts and culture editor] and everyone else who’s ever left Hawaii for Los Angeles, or San Francisco, or anywhere), I was a mess last week when you left. The last day we spent together, on the Hawaii Five-0 set as “airport travelers” oggling LL Cool J, you probably didn’t realize that I was savoring every second we spent, hanging on your every trademark deadpan humorous word.
When I think of local companies with sustainable practices I always remember the Green Style on the Garden Isle event the Hawaii Fashion Incubator pulled off on Kauai in 2008. An amazing weekend showcasing green fashion and products, panel discussions and a fashion show on one of the most beautiful islands in the world.
