The time when we look back and remember the stories that made a difference or left a mark in the past year. Over coming days our beat reporters will share their picks from the Land, Money, Hawaii, Honolulu, Education and Washington, D.C. beats.
I hope this series give many of you a chance to catch up on what you might have missed on Civil Beat, a chance to get a better picture of the range and depth of our reporting.
Then there were the Community Voices, everything from Joe Bright’s series “Un-homed but not Unhinged,” where he shared his personal experiences and challenged conventional wisdom about homelessness, for example in this column, Re-Homed & Off the Edge: Rats Really Are Everywhere, to a series on energy by Richard Ha, a Big Island farmer who is chairman of the board of Ku‘oko‘a, a company that wants to buy HECO.
We hope to share many more community voices in the coming year. If you have something you want to say, please let us know by emailing email@example.com.
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this look back. It’s amazing to consider all that’s happened in such a short time.
