Kapolei

This entire section is getting very well developed in the mind set of the residents, not only in city building. There is much interest in local entertainment from Honokai Hale and down the coast around Kalealoa and including Ewa Beach. More people are thinking of a "Beach Club." What beach club? Anyway it sounds good.

"Be yourself, everyone else is already taken."


Then there have always been dancers in this territory but they found it necessary to go all the way downtown to various nice clubs available there. But the Rail Catastrophe has brought to mind "Second City" and there is no stopping that. The residents will live, work and play in their own kuleana.

Kalealoa is arousing more interest in drinking oasis. With the two new ones we got now, it will lead eventually to live music and one of them is going to go for dancing. That will be one terrific deal to look forward to. Be able to go dancing in a nice club in Kalealoa, among friends and neighbors and get home in a half hour, not having to buck the horrible traffic in downtown Honolulu. So we can dream can't we?

Falls are the most common type of fatal unintentional injuries in Hawaii averaging over 108 each year. Falls are also the leading cause of nonfatal injuries in the state with nearly 21,000 emergency room visits and 2,700 hospitalizations each year.  More than three quarters of the victims are aged 65 or older and the risk of fatal falls increases dramatically as seniors move into higher age ranges. I fell twice and am on a walker now. The emotional and fiscal burden associated with fall injuries can be significant.

Pub's Side Note: From the Rubaiyat by Omar Khayyam about 1000 years ago.
“The moving finger writes, and having writ moves on. Nor all your piety or wit,
shall lure it back to cancel half a line, nor all your tears wash out a word of it.”
