Ray Tsuchiyama's family arrived on Maui in the early 1900s, and his father was at Maui High with many illustrious Maui old timers. Over the last two years for the Maui News, he has re-interpreted Hawai'i history through a current perspective, and has written on a range of options for the future, on transportation, food security, and population.
Update June 27, 2014: "Pacific Memories and Visions" was presented an 2013 Excellence in Journalism Contest award by the Hawaii Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists:
First Place: Best 1-Person Online Features Site/1-Person Features Blog "Martin Luther King, Jr. Wearing a Lei in Selma, Alabama (and Other Blogs)," Pacific Visions and Memories (Maui News).
Thank you, professional journalist judges from the Colorado Society of Professional Journalists for highlighting my 1-person blog site as the best among Features blog sites in the State of Hawaii.
And thank you Maui News for giving me a forum two years and 120+ blog posts ago. I will continue to "look back" in Hawaii's history for clues for a bright future.
