Oahu, Hawaii not the only islands with a Kailua

There was an Associated Press story in The Maui News on April 2 about Facebook confusing Kailua on Oahu and Kailua-Kona on the island of Hawaii. Maui also has a Kailua. It’s a collection of homes and an East Maui Irrigation Co. office between Huelo and Keanae.

Before the advent of ZIP codes, old-timers prevented this sort of confusion by adding the island name to the address on the envelope.
