ʻO ia aʻela kekahi poʻo nūhou o kēia lā, ka lā 19 o ka mahina ʻo Nowemapa, he Pōʻalima. Welina e nā makamaka. ʻO Ke Aolama kēia a penei ka nūhou.

Kūkala aʻela ka Papa Kiaʻāina o ke Kikowaena Hikina-Komohana, ʻo Suzanne Vares-Lum ana ka pelekikena hou o ia kikowaena. ʻAkahi nō a lilo ia kūlana i ka ʻŌiwi Hawaiʻi a i ka wahine nō hoʻi. Ua hānau ʻo Vares-Lum ma Wahiawā, a lilo ihola i Lukānela ʻelua ma ka polokalamu o ka Pūʻalikoa Aʻo Aliʻi Koa Ukali o ke Kulanui o Hawaiʻi ma Mānoa. He 34 ona makahiki i hana ai ma ka Pūʻalikoa ʻAmelika Hui Pū ʻIa a he Mekia Kenela ʻo ia i kona wā i hoʻomaha loa ai i ʻApelila. ʻO ka wahine Hawaiʻi mua loa ʻo Vares-Lum i lilo i kenelala.

He kaʻa wane hoʻomākaʻikaʻi kai pau i ke ahi i kona wā e piʻi ana no luna o Mauna Kea i ka lā 9 o ka mahina ʻo Nowemapa. E holo ana nō ke kaʻa wane, a honi ʻia aʻela ka uahi, hoʻokū ke kiakaʻa i ke kaʻa, a lele ihola nā mea a pau o luna i lalo o ka honua. He ʻeiwa mau kānaka o luna o ke kaʻa, ʻo ke kiakaʻa a me nā ʻōhua he ʻewalu. Ma hope iho, ua ʻā ʻia ke ahi, a e pahū ana kekahi mau mea o ke kaʻa. Ua kāhea ʻia aku ke kinai ahi, a hiki maila he hui kinai ahi pekelala mai Kahi Hoʻomaʻamaʻa o Pōhakuloa he 30 minuke ma hope mai, a hoʻopio akula i ke ahi. Ua pau loa ke kaʻa wane i ka pōʻino. Akā, ʻo ka mea nui, ʻaʻohe ola i pōʻino.

Hopu ʻia aku kekahi kanaka iwakālua kumamāhiku makahiki e ka mākaʻi o Honolulu. Ua ʻōlelo ʻia, ua kuʻi akula ʻo ia i kekahi kiaʻipoʻo. Ua hoʻāʻo ke kiaʻipoʻo e lawe aku i ua kanaka lā i waho o ka Pūpū o Waikīkī no ka mea, ʻaʻole ʻo ia e komo ana i ke pale ihu. He 71 makahiki o ke kiaʻipoʻo. ʻO ka Pūpū o Waikīkī, he wahi ia e nānā ʻia ai ka loaʻa o ke kanaka i ka maʻi COVIDA a me ka ʻole paha.

Eia mai kā kākou ʻōlelo noʻeau,

Kāpī ʻia i ka paʻakai a miko.

ʻO ia hoʻi, ua pono ke uku aku i uku hoʻopaʻi kanono.
