College Football’s Shifting Sands

Over the past few weeks, I’ve received more and more comments about the recent maneuverings in college conferences – some questions quite facetious and some very serious. “How will all this movement among the conferences affect Hawaii?” “How will it affect schools outside the so-called super-conferences?” “Will this eventually lead to a Division I football […]

A Disastrous Dining Experience

My family and I had an experience with a local business recently that represents why some are successful and others are not.
