The Woody was involved…
For those of you that have ever driven by our office in Hanalei, you’ll notice that there is a Woody parked in front of our office. It’s a bright red 1948 International. You can’t miss it! We have a sign posted on the Woody that we accept donations for the Kauai Independent Food Bank.
1948 International Woody, a Hanalei Icon
A few months ago, Catherine Ngo, President and CEO of Central Pacific Bank, (CPB), Kevin Yoshida, Senior Vice President of CPB and Sheleah Masi, Branch Manager of CPB Kapaa stopped by our office. We had a great time with them and look forward to a long and successful relationship. During the course of the conversation, we talked about the Woody, which was parked in front of the office and has long been associated with Bali Hai. Catherine had never been to Hanalei, so John Ferry took them all out for a tour of Hanalei town in the Woody. They were delighted!
Sheleah Masi, Kevin Yoshida, Catherine Ngo and John Ferry.
Well, Sheleah stopped by our office the other day and dropped off two checks for the Kauai Independent Food Bank – one from Central Pacific Bank and one from Catherine Ngo personally. Thank you so much! The Kauai Independent Food Bank thanks you. And the Woody thanks you, too!

The Garden Island Newspaper reports that Island Air has officially confirmed they will be resuming flights to Kauai beginning March 15, 2016, offering six daily round-trip flights between Honolulu and Kauai. The news comes on the heels of the recent purchase of the airlines by local investment firm PacifiCap, who bought controlling interest in Island Air from Billionaire, Larry Ellison’s Ohana Airline Holdings, earlier this month.
Lihue Airport, Kauai
For locals and tourists alike, this announcement is a welcomed relief, after feeling the woes in the wallet following the airline’s suspension of service to Kauai in June of 2015. The departure left Hawaiian Airlines as the only interisland flight option for passenger travel out of the Lihue airport.
“Recognizing that for many local people inter-island travel is a necessity and not a luxury, this is an important first step in our mission to benefit our local community in Hawaii by providing more seat availability and more options for interisland travel,” said Jeffrey Au, founder of PacifiCap.
To celebrate the announcement, they are offering a special “welcome back, Kauai” fare sale, with one-way flights to or from Kauai starting at $63. According to the release, the deal begins Thursday, January 21, 2016 and ends Sunday, January 24, 2016, for travel dates falling between March 15, 2016 and May 31, 2016. Read the rest of this entry »
