I’m sorry that this edition of The Hawai‘i Herald is reaching you late.

I realize that this has been happening more often recently. The truth is the Herald’s editorial staff is extremely short-staffed — down to one full-time person (that’s me) and one half-time writer (Jodie Ching, who is currently away on a trip). We will always try to deliver the Herald to you on time — on the first and third Friday of every month. But that may not always be possible. If you do not receive your issue of the Herald on time, please know that it will be delivered to you in a day or two.

You can always email me at kchinen@thehawaiihochi.com, or leave a phone message for me at (808) 845-2255, x. 118. I will return your call or email. Thank you for your patience and understanding. — Karleen Chinen, Editor
