Feeding families

Aloha overflowed out of the front entrance of the Grand Hyatt Kaua‘i Regency & Spa Thursday afternoon when the resort’s General Manager Dan King and a band of volunteers welcomed back colleagues for a family-style meal pickup conducted within the parameters of social distancing and health safety guidelines created by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Road repairs continue as usual

The state Department of Transportation is poised to identify shovel-ready projects on Kaua‘i and other islands should more federal funding be directed toward the Highways Division during the pandemic.

Every little bit helps with relief

A flood of relief flowed through the yard Wednesday morning ahead of the opening of emergency food pickup at the Kaua‘i Independent Food Bank warehouse.

Hata & Co. truck that brought some of its Value Plus Kaua‘i Store “restaurant packages and bundles” to the public, led by Paula Jepas, the Y. Hata Kaua‘i manager.
