  • The Hawaii Channel has some tremendous video of the newest Kilauea volcano lava flow.  The raw video was shot from a helicopter over the weekend at sunset.  The video lasts about eight minutes and has some pretty spectacular shots throughout. The flow is reported to be 100 feet wide and one mile long.  Wow! 


  • Where will you find more than 1,000 orchid plants on display?  That would be at the 55th Annual Hilo Orchid Society Show and Sale beginning this Friday. The three-day event will be held in Hilo on the Big Island at the Edith Kanakaole Multi-Purpose Stadium.  Admission is by donation at the door.  For more information call 808-933-9772.
