Letters to the Editor

Good to GO!

I would be surprised if anyone with a little business mind would say GO! is not good for Hawaii (August 2007), unless of course they work for Aloha Airlines or Hawaiian Airlines. Those two have been sticking it to us for years. However, we can’t blame them, it’s business. They had no competition and they were responsible for generating the highest return for their shareholders. While their long-term business plan probably did not anticipate the emergence of a serious competitor, the plan worked for the short term.

MMA Deserves Respect

My name is Randy Lueder. I am a claims adjuster and just finished my MBA at Chaminade. I also compete as a professional MMA fighter. I would like to thank you for featuring MMA on the (September 2007) cover of Hawaii Business. I hope that more and more people familiarize themselves with the intricacies of Mixed Martial Arts and understand that this is a sport with professionally trained athletes and a business worthy of respect from everyone, the same way other sports are respected and recognized in the community.

Kudos for Kaulana

What a pleasure to see Kaulana Park featured on the August 2007 cover of Hawaii Business! His statement on page 40 of the same issue makes it clear that he is as sensitive and thoughtful as he is handsome!

Kaulana also makes it clear that Hawaii, with its unique environment and mixed ethnicities can produce young people with astonishing capabilities.
