*Note on Hawaiian spellings:
In Hana Hou!'s print edition, we take special care to include the okina (glottal stop) and kahako (macron) marks used in proper spelling of Hawaiian words.  Due to compatibility issues with certain Web browsers and search engines, however, we are not able to include them on this site.
