The Molokai News goes on vacation

| June 23, 2014 | 6 Comments

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:

Mahalo Nui Loa!

  1. I’ve had the same problem – trying to fit in a vacation. Where are you spending your vacation after working straight for 5 years? Are people stepping up to cover the beats?

    I thought I’d do a short post.

      Just landed in Denver where I will spend a week visiting friends and family and decompressing. Not sure if anyone will cover my beats, though it would be nice if someone did step up; plus they would get paid! Thanks for the coverage Jim and keep reading The Molokai News!

    well deserved break.

    make the most of it!


    Have a good rest to stop & smell the roses. But how am I going to get my daily fix of Molokai here in Calif.?

    A friend told us “Molokai is a terrible place…you just need to get away from it every now and then to remember how much worse every place else is.” Enjoy.
