Are you prepared for the next disaster?

The shock of the 6.7 magnitude Oct. 15 earthquake was a rude awakening for many Hawai‘i residents. O‘ahu found itself without electricity, leaving many without food, water, or light when night fell. [More]


Nobody knows when the next hurricane might hit O‘ahu’s coastlines, so it is better if the community just stays prepared.

Helping strangers is something that some of us find difficult, but one group makes it easy.

Grindz Restaurant: Satisfying hunger and providing second chances

Students who frequent the Sea Warrior Center will notice a change to the student hangout that goes beyond fresh paint and new couches. The Grindz Restaurant, actually a spring addition to the Sea Warrior Center, is the brainchild of Vincent Kwon, a husband and a father of three, who, two years ago, found himself homeless and addicted to crystal methamphetamine. It was a path, he said, that could have killed him. Through the support and encouragement of his wife, Glynis, a Farrington High School teacher, Kwon kicked his addiction and has been clean since October 2004. [More]
