With this issue, we conclude our five-year-long salute to 100 AJA “pioneers,” a special Hawaii Herald/Hawaii Hochi project that will culminate in the publishing of a book next year — the Hawaii Hochi’s centennial —featuring all 100 profiles. The 13 “pioneers” featured in this “Hawaii Hochi 99th Anniversary Edition” represent a mix of people from Hawai‘i’s early Japanese history to present-day Hawaii.

The issue also contains a story by Kevin Kawamoto on Hawaii’s rich history of rice. The second annual Hawai‘i Rice Festival takes place on Sunday, Sept. 11, at Magic Island, Ala Moana Beach Park.
