Talking Story…Sen. Mike Gabbard
Aloha e, Friends,
Happy Father’s Day on June 15 to all my fellow dads out there!
Also, big congrats to the 2014 high school graduates from Campbell, Kapolei and Waipahu high schools, Island Pacific Academy and American Renaissance Academy, as well as a special shout-out to Waipahu principal Keith Hayashi for being named Principal of the Year.
And a huge welcome to The Queen’s Medical Center-West Oahu in Ewa into our community. As of May 20, we are very fortunate to have our hospital back!
As always, please let me know if I can ever help you or your family in any way. I can be reached at 586-6830 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Mokulele Takes Flight at Kalaeloa Airport
If you’re looking to hop over to a Neighbor Island this summer, consider leaving from Kalaeloa Airport to get to your destination.
That’s because Mokulele Airlines is launching flights from Kalaeloa Airport starting July 1. They’ll begin with three round-trip passenger flights from Kalaeloa Airport to Kahului Airport on Maui.
Departing flights from Kalaeloa will be at 7:35 a.m., 1 p.m. and 6:20 p.m. Returning flights from Kahului will be at 6:15 a.m., 11:40 a.m. and 5 p.m.
My next “Listen Story” meeting will be held from 9 to 10 a.m. June 28 at Ewa Mahiko District Park.
State Sen. Mike Gabbard represents District 20, which includes Kapolei, Makakilo, and portions of Ewa, Kalaeloa and Waipahu.
