    Volunteers poured the concrete pad for a Purple Heart Memorial being constructed at West Hawaii Veterans Cemetery. The monument will be placed near the pavilion at the back of the cemetery, across from a POW/MIA monument and ash garden already in place.

    One of the foods trending on the healthy track this year is Pulses — edible seeds of legume plants. Think dried peas, lentils and chickpeas: Not exactly exciting ingredients, but staples in many Mediterranean cuisines for their low-cost, fiber-filling benefits and easy storage.
