The news never sleeps. But the people who report it do and right now this one-person news operation needs a nap.
The Molokai News has consistently offered news about Molokai for five years without missing a week. Now the publication is taking its first-ever vacation. Call it recharging the batteries, sharpening the edge of the saw or what have you, all I know is I need a break.
Hopefully, by stepping away from Molokai for a few days I will have gained a new perspective and a new sense of purpose. I will return with a new story on July 1, reinvigorated and ready to take on the challenges of covering important issues for the people of Molokai.
While I am gone, if somebody out there would like to report on the Department of Interior meeting happening on Molokai this Saturday (1-4 p.m., Kaunakakai Elementary School) it would be appreciated. I will pay $50 for a 500-1,000 word story with a pic, mahalo!
I will still be reading and responding to my emails while off island. Send all story suggestions, questions and other communications to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mahalo Nui Loa!
