13. Being relatively small, the journalism in Hawaii is relatable and pertinent to the residents
14. On the island of Kauai we have a seasoned photojournalist Dennis Fujimoto of the Garden Island newspaper. He along with a talented staff provide local news with in-depth coverage. His congenial manner and endearing concern for our community keeps us well informed and in touch with community concerns in business, education, philanthropic organizations and local events. Loving Dennis and the Garden Island news is easy when considering how they enrich our island with the news.
