    Travelers to Hawaii will now have to show proof of having received the coronavirus booster shot in order to be considered fully vaccinated. Under the state’s current “Safe Travels” program, visitors to the state must quarantine for five days or test negative for the coronavirus within one day of travel if they are not fully vaccinated, which previously meant two doses of the Pfizer/Moderna vaccines or one dose of Johnson & Johnson vaccine. The new guidelines will now include booster shots in order for people to skip quarantine.

    A 42-year-old woman is in serious condition after falling 100 feet off Olomana Trail Monday morning. It happened around 10:30 a.m. Paramedics say she was at the third peak of the trail when she fell. Two bystanders saw the fall and were able to traverse down to her and provide assistance until they were able to get in touch with first responders. One of the Good Samaritans says when he got down to her -- her leg had gotten caught in a rock and was keeping her from falling any further. “The lady that ended up falling started out on...

    Gov. David Ige said the new rule will not go into effect for at least two weeks.Hawaii will require visitors to the state to have received a COVID-19 vaccine booster if they want to skip quarantine.

However, the program is changing the definition of "fully...

    Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, have purchased 110 acres of a former sugar plantation reservoir on the Hawaiian island of Kauai. The agricultural land includes most of the earthen Ka Loko Reservoir, which tragically dumped over 400 million gallons of water when one of its walls failed in 2006, killing seven people... The new land grab adds to Zuckerberg’s already sizable estate on the island, most of which lies on protected agricultural and conservation land surrounding the couple’s Hawaiian home, Ko‘olau Ranch, according to the Star-Advertiser. Zuckerberg had previously purchased about 700 acres for $100 million...

    Less than 24 hours before Friday's Hawaii Bowl, Hawaii announced on Thursday that it will not be able to participate in the game vs. Memphis due to a rise in COVID-19 cases and player availability. "We are disappointed our season has to end this way," coach Todd Graham said. "As competitive as we are and as much as we want to play the game, we cannot put the health and safety of our student-athletes at risk." Shortly after UH's made its decision public, Hawaii Bowl officials announced this year's game was off. The two teams were set to square off...

    Former President Barack Obama and his family were seen enjoying some fun in the water this weekend after heading back to Hawaii for their annual Christmas trip. The 60-year-old 44th president was pictured donning black swim trunks on Saturday as he went for a dip in the Pacific Ocean, and was snapped squinting in the sun as he left his sunglasses behind. The day before, his daughters, Sasha, 20, and Malia, 23, were also caught on camera as they went out on the water on stand-up paddle boards, each wearing a bikini for the beach day. Obama, who was born...

    Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI) said Thursday on CNN’s “Newsroom” that the Republican Party is attempting to stop “Black people, Chicanos, Asian-American people from voting.” Hirono said, “What I’m seeing are voter suppression bills being enacted by state legislatures across the country, so that is a direct threat to our democracy. Voter suppression bills by the hundreds. So you have a state like Georgia where they’re trying to take over the election board. They already have, where you can’t give water or food to people standing in line for hours, where you have one voter who can challenge another voter, and...

    HONOLULU, HI—CNN and other mainstream news outlets are reporting on a "tragic, completely accidental" boating accident at Pearl Harbor. As details still come in, CNN is urging people to not rush to judgment or assign blame until the story goes away in a few days. "Such a tragic and completely accidental boating accident," said one news anchor. "The thing that's so sad about it is the tragic, totally random accidentalness of it. Our hearts are with the victims and whatever. Anyway, in other news..." Independent journalists from the scene are sending messages that this was an intentional attack by the...

    A few dozen survivors of Pearl Harbor are expected to gather Tuesday at the site of the Japanese bombing 80 years ago to remember those killed in the attack that launched the U.S. into World War II. Herb Elfring, 99, said he's glad to return to Pearl Harbor considering he almost didn't live through the aerial assault. "It was just plain good to get back and be able to participate in the remembrance of the day," Elfring told reporters over the weekend.
  • Pearl Harbor: What If Japan Never Attacked?

    What if Japan had not attacked Pearl Harbor eighty years ago today? The attack is today regarded as an enormous tactical success, but a strategic failure. Several older battleships were damaged or destroyed, but the treachery of the attack spurred the United States to fully mobilize for war and to pursue that war with a vengeful fury. The attack also pushed the United States to adopt innovative tactics that would quickly overturn Japanese advantages in air and naval technology. What other military options did Japan have besides an attack on Pearl Harbor? It would have been extremely difficult for Japan...

    One enduring conspiracy theory is that Franklin Delano Roosevelt, George Marshall and Cordell Hull had foreknowledge of a potentially devastating Pearl Harbor attack and used the event to precipitate U.S. participation in WW II. In general revisionists start with the determination that the Japanese had to fire the first shot in order for the Administration to get the backing of the American people. Next looking backwards, they piece together specific data points to prove these men must have known the attack was coming.However, they have had to ignore the fact that these men were living into history. The information the...
  • Remembering the men of the USS Arizona on Pearl Harbor Day

    80 years after the day that will live in infamy, let’s remember the men who lost their lives on the USS Arizona. I’m so privileged that one of the two remaining Arizona survivors, Lt. Cmdr. Lou Conter (Ret.) has become a dear friend. I attended his 100th birthday celebration in September, and visited him recently. He’s doing great, but the rigors of traveling to Hawaii and attendance at the public observances would be a bit much. As I do every Pearl Harbor Day, I offer my son’s 2017 Eagle Scout project video biography of Mr Conter.

    President Biden and first lady Jill Biden paid a visit to the World War II memorial in Washington, D.C. early Tuesday morning to mark the 80th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. The Bidens spent just over ten minutes at the memorial. They observed a wreath decorated with the state flower of Kansas, which the White House said was there to honor the late Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kansas), who died on Sunday. Dole suffered life-threatening injuries while serving in World War II and went on to be a stalwart of the Republican Party. Jill Biden also placed a bouquet...

    Pearl Harbor: The First Overt Act “…the Japanese aviators at that time [7 December 1941] were all charged up to go fight. Our people were not charged up to go fight, until after Pearl Harbor was hit.”(1) Although it has been eighty years since the Japanese delivered the first substantial overt act against the United States of the Second World War, nothing yet published has reasonably explained how the Army and Navy in Hawaii were taken by apparent surprise. Having spent the past thirty-eight years studying and analyzing Pearl Harbor and America’s entry into World War II, we, the authors...
