    I personally enjoyed watching “Perfect Bride” and “Whisper,” which both end this week. After looking at some previews, I am sure the following drama, “Breezy Love” will not disappoint my Sunday evenings. There have been many emails and confusion about “Perfect Bride” as the character Heo Da Hae (played by Kim Gyu-ri), Gab-dol’s older sister who always got into financial trouble and ex-wife to Jo Geum Sik, disappeared more than half way through the series. She was last seen opening up a chicken restaurant in the countryside and didn’t show up afterward. The series was extended 11 episodes and actress Kim Gyu-ri did not extend her contract with the series.

    I have written previously about some of the human casualties that took place in this past legislative session. I would be remiss if I failed to mention Tom Gorak, who had been chief counsel of the Hawaii Public Utilities Commission before Gov. David Ige appointed him to be one of the three PUC commissioners.

    The delicate and delicious flavor of the fruit of the mangosteen tree has encouraged some local gardeners to grow this plant. Since it can take up to 15 years for a mangosteen tree to fruit, growing it may only appeal to those who plan to be gardening for the next 20 years or so. With a little care and lots of patience, the tree will grow well in West Hawaii, however, and reward your efforts with a bounty of luscious fruit.

    On May 26, a group of 19 students from New Jersey’s Gill St. Bernard School volunteered at the Habitat West Hawaii ReStore. The students were visiting Hawaii to explore Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, and wanted to stop by Habitat for Humanity West Hawaii to make a difference in the place they were visiting.
