    double salute at pearl harbor commemorationToday, under a bright and sunny Hawaii sky more than 5000 people attended the 70th Anniversary Pearl Harbor Commemoration to recognize 120 survivors of the “day of infamy,” December 7, 1941. They were easy to identify: Most wore a hat with the word “survivor” embroidered across it.

  • Friday Photo: Humuula Sheep Station

    Destination: Hawaii Island

    This is a window at the Humuula Sheep Station on the slopes of Mauna Kea. As you might guess from the broken glass and weathered wood, the sheep station is no longer in use.
