Newspaper tells stories of people who live here

At 3 a.m., my eyes are awake, my brain is awake and I am looking forward to another day in the greatest place on Earth — Maui.

By working hard all of our lives, we were not born here but bought our place in 2002, right after Sept. 11, 2001, when prices were low. We moved here in 2007 and will hopefully be here till our ashes are spread over the waters in South Maui.

I love Maui and one of the best parts of the days is getting up early, reading The Maui News about the successes of the people that live on Maui. I read the paper cover to cover. I enjoy the fantastic stories that your writers write, the pictures that Matthew Thayer takes and the reading of the opinions of your readers.

I wear “rose-colored glasses” so therefore look forward to all the positive things in life.

I can read world news on the computer, but The Maui News lets me read all the stories of the people that live here.

We have been subscribers of The Maui News since we moved here as it is our window of all the people and things that happen on Maui.
