Remembering 9/11 by Planting Trees
Most families and friends are marking this September 11th in quiet and personal ways. One of those that died that day was Christine Synder an arborist for the Outdoor Circle. Several trees were planted in her honor and are still thriving including a banyan that had to be relocated within Kapiolani Park. We talked to the Outdoor Circle’s Steve Mechler about remembering Christine Synder who had been attending a conference on the east coast and had just jumped on a return flight home to Hawaii.

Opportunity for Runaways in Windward
Working with runaway teens or homeless youth in Waikiki Carla Houser saw a void that desperately needed to be filled. About a month ago a new facility, a group home for teens, opened its doors in Windward Oahu. Call it project RYSE. Carla Houser joined us in the studio to talk about its early success.
