SAMANTHA BROWN’S PLACES TO LOVE
Houston, Texas

 

When it comes best destination cities in the US, does Houston make your list? Maybe it should. As one of the largest metropolitan areas in the country, this city offers something for everyone. Not only that, but it’s really become a melting pot of all sorts of different cultures. Throw in a booming art and food scene, and I think Houston just might be a vacation destination that’s hiding in plain sight.

PBS Hawai‘i recognized by Honolulu City Council

 

PBS Hawai‘i was recognized by the Honolulu City Council yesterday for 52 years of serving the Islands with quality storytelling that profoundly touches lives, including curriculum-rich children’s programming, public affairs, arts and culture, science and history, and a focus on authentic stories of Hawai‘i.

 

“With the changes in the Islands, PBS Hawai‘i has become a rare locally owned statewide media enterprise,” said PBS Hawai‘i President and CEO Leslie Wilcox. “Our staffers tap the aloha spirit – the coordination of mind and heart – in creating and presenting stories.”

INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
How Can We Best Help the Homeless?

 

Efforts to deal with Oahu’s homeless population, such as moving them out of parks
and off sidewalks, have only shifted them away from businesses, leading to more
sidewalk tents in Kaka‘ako and Kapalama. Now City Council members want the Mayor
to consider using the former Hilo Hattie site on Nimitz Highway as a homeless shelter.
What could the State and counties do to help? How can we best help the homeless?
