An Author Among Us
Classmate Mike Yamamoto has recently had his second book -- “Hawaiian Anchialine Pools” -- published. The State Department of Land & Natural Resources (DLNR) donated 86 copies to Hawaii’s public libraries. Of that total, 72 copies are available for borrowing. Since June 2015, more than 100 library patrons have borrowed the book. The DLNR also donated 100 copies of Mike’s first book “Hawaii’s Native & Exotic Freshwater Animals” (published in 2000 and co-written with Annette W. Tagawa) to Hawaii’s public libraries. To date, this book has been borrowed more than 1,500 times by library patrons. --Info submitted by Paul Mark

The Gift of Giving
Judy (Lum) Taira has made a thoughtful and timely donation to the Class of 70 to pay for the annual fees to keep this website up and running. She lives in Fountain Valley, CA with husband Dan, a 70 grad from Hilo High. Judy, a retired teacher, routinely checks out our website and although she has not been able to attend our reunion events, she faithfully sends wonderful donations for prizes. Hopefully Judy and Dan will be in attendance of our next Class get-together. Mahalo Judy!!!
