Hawaii lives and breathes through its airports and the airlines that service them. We are the only state where air travel is the only practical way to get residents from one point in the state to another and the only state that cannot be reached by land.

And their numbers are growing (or at least they were until the latest eruption overreaction in the national press). Here in Kona alone, airline seat capacity in the first quarter of 2018 was 30 percent above what it was in 2017.

BALTIMORE — The day looked much the same. There were wastebaskets catching rainwater seeping through the ceiling, cardboard and wood chips and carpets meant to soak up days’ worth of dampness at Pimlico Race Course. The track resembled peanut butter, not dirt, and the fog rolled in as if on cue, producing a thick white curtain as the horses loaded the gate, leaving the race caller to rely on television monitors, rather than what he could see with his own eyes.
KAILUA-KONA — The Papa Kimitete Regatta started with a blessing, as is tradition. But on Saturday morning, the words that rang over the loudspeaker meant just a little more.
