Back To The Future

I really feel lucky to be working for a company that continues to stay on the cutting edge of technology. In this business, you really have to, and we are given the tools to make sure we’re on top. Of course, everything we get has to be justified, as there is no such thing as […]

Hard Liquor

I’ve mentioned in the past that, in my position as publisher of MidWeek, my wife and I receive quite a few invitations to attend various functions on the island. We’re very honored by this and humbled that they would like us to join them. For the most part, many are for charitable causes, so they […]

Curb Appeal

We had some pretty nice weather the other weekend, so I decided to catch up with some yardwork at home. The first order of business was to get up on my roof and clear away foliage that was encroaching on my zero lot property from the neighbor behind us. Their palm fronds were touching our […]

Dress Rehearsal

If there’s one thing that I really hate to do, it’s to go clothes shopping with my wife and 17-year-old daughter. I really have no purpose in that process other than maybe to pay the bill, but even then my wife can take care of that herself. I think it’s some kind of whacked-out test […]

Silence Is Golden

The other week I needed to take a business trip to the Big Island. My trip was to start in Hilo and end in Kona. I was to travel with our vice president of human resources. I’ve worked with her for about 17 years now, and I can attest that she is one of the […]

You Talking To Me?

This column originally was published Feb. 8, 2012. Probably one of the best things I did in 2011 was to get a family dog. I’ve always loved animals, but there’s something about a dog that is so endearing. Maybe the fact that my wife, my mom and I were all born in the Year of […]

Sparkling Personality

My wife and I are on the back-end of our daughter’s senior year in high school. That means our lives no longer belong to us and everything we do seems to be in preparation of her graduation. Having already gone through this with our son, we actually don’t mind and are trying to savor all […]

Concession Concession

The other weekend my wife and 17-year-old daughter decided that they were going to treat themselves to pedi-cures. This gave me a great opportunity to finally watch a movie by myself, which translates to watching a movie I want to see. Usually when I go to a movie with them it has to be something […]

Storage Wars

While I love the Christmas holiday season, there is one thing about it that I absolutely hate. That is the fact that it ends. What that means to Ron Nagasawa is that I have to take down and put away all of our holiday decorations. The entire process of putting up and taking down decorations […]

Fight The Power

I realize that we’re a couple of weeks into January, but I finally can tell you about my New Year’s Eve experience. Our family had a really nice treat over the holidays, in that my wife’s older brother, his wife and 8-year-old daughter came from the Mainland to spend New Year’s with us. That was […]
