HONOLULU -- A project to revitalize one of only six remaining fishponds on O‘ahu took a significant step forward in the fall with the demolition and removal of two abandoned/condemned residential structures that shared the beach front property along busy Kalaniana‘ole Highway in Niu Valley in east Honolulu. Work at the site of the historic Kalauha‘iha‘i Hawaiian fishpond (also known as Lucas pond) was completed two months earlier than planned. Work to clear the property and restore a more natural state was completed in September.

(HONOLULU) – On a warm July evening, visitors Lonnie Watson and Mark Louviere from the Ft. Worth, Texas metro area did what they normally do during their frequent visits to Hawaii. They wandered out to the coastline to watch the setting sun. On this particular day they spotted something that they say has humbled and blessed them. Watson explained, “For some reason there was a beam of light…just a beam…it landed right on one of them and for some reason I just turned my head. I said, look, it was just a stroke of luck.”
