HawaiiThe Honolulu Star-Bulletin is counting down to year 2000 with this special series.
A retrospective on the cusp
of the new millennium
About this Series
Each month through December, we'll be highlighting, chronologically, important eras in Hawaii's history.
Each month's installment will feature a timeline which, viewed as a whole by year's end, will have recapped Hawaii's milestones -- the building-block events of our future.

come from a temple of sacrifice
in Kona, on the Big Island.
