End of Free Online News From Big Island’s Main Stephens Media Newspapers

The other day I was browsing the Hawaii Tribune Herald online and I noticed this popup that kept popping up and I kept closing the window and for some reason it would take me back to the front page of the paper.  I didn’t really think anything of it at the time… but I just tried to access the paper online again today and got the same pop-up.

I took a closer look at the pop up and it read the following:

I’ve now looked at the West Hawaii Today site and they are also blocking readers from reading the whole articles.  It looks like folks are allowed to read 10 pages or something each month before things start getting funny on the sites.

I've used 7 page of 30!

The funny thing is… is they are not only blocking their own written articles… They are blocking articles delivered to them by the Associated Press.

I just checked out Big Island Weekly and it looks like they are still providing free online news… but who knows how long that will last?

Proposed Flights From Rockford, Illinois to Honolulu, Hawaii CANCELLED for Now

Chicago Rockford International Airport ran out of time to market the routes, so passenger flights from Rockford to Hawaii and England won’t happen this spring.

An airport official says they are still committed to landing regular overseas air service, but there is no deal in place. So the routes may not materialize at all.

Charter World Solutions, the charter airline operator that proposed flying the routes, says it is now shooting for October to start the service, which airport officials were ready to back with $1.4 million in revenue guarantees and $300,000 in marketing support…

New Visual Fundamentals Drawing Workshop at the WAG

Waimea Artists’ Guild (WAG) will present a four-week “Visual Fundamentals” drawing workshop taught by professional artist Marshall Leonard Kary, Jr., at the WAG workspace in Waimea.  Part of the spring ‘Ohana in the Arts workshop series, all Visual Fundamentals class sessions take place on Fridays:  5-6:30 p.m. for children 6-12, and 7-9 p.m. for age 13 through adults.  (Parents may drop children off).

Marshall Leonard Kary, Jr.

An award-winning artist and photographer, Kary is also an instructor at the UH West Hawaii Campus, whose paintings, prints, embossings and paper sculptures have been exhibited in prestigious Hawai‘i and California galleries since the 1970’s.  His workshop will explore the dynamics of drawing, including line, form, texture and shape, using a variety of tools and papers.

We were very pleased with the enthusiastic response to our premier ‘Ohana in the Arts workshop series – Printmaking with Geoffrey Mundon,” said WAG co-director Beth Mehau.  “And Marshall’s drawing classes are going to be just as rewarding—especially for the beginning and less-experienced artists who want to know more of the basics.”

Cost for the four-week Workshop is $80 including materials.  Advance registration is required.  (There is no class on Friday, May 11).

Following Visual Fundamentals, the next ‘Ohana in the Arts Workshop takes place June 1-19, when Toma Barboza presents a five-week Woodworking course.  Also in June & July, WAG will offer its Summer Session, including classes in Oil Painting with Patrick Ching, Relief Printmaking with Harinani Orme, and Cultural Jewelry with Stacy Gordine (beginners and advanced).  Complete course list and descriptions are available at

WAG is an association of professional artists whose intent is to produce art and promote education in their community.  A project of The Pantry 501(c)3 non profit organization, WAG is located in the industrial complex adjacent to Mama’s House thrift store, just past NAPA Auto.

The Guild was created by graduates of HOEA, the Hawaiian ‘Ohana for Education in the Arts, whose mission is to “increase the number, accessibility, and visibility of Native Hawaiian Arts and Artists.” Although Native Hawaiian ancestry is not required for membership in the Waimea Artists’ Guild, sensitivity for cultural themes, materials and practices is of primary concern in the operation of the program.  For additional information, contact: Beth or Tom Mehau at 887-2289, email or visit
