No More Getting It Weekly

Chad Blair/Civil Beat

I knew from the very first issue of Honolulu Weekly that I wanted to work for it.

It was the summer of 1991 and I was in graduate school at the University of Hawaii. The paper was fresh, original, fun, clever, a little wicked.

It was also important, offering content not found in the mainstream media of the time. My six years with the paper, from late 1997 until early 2004, changed my life and formed the journalist I would become.

In spite of up and down years, at its best the Weekly stuck to its "independent, locally owned" commitment, accented the "alt" in alternative and helped make Honolulu and Hawaii a better place to live.

Have feedback? Suggestions?
