Help is on the way in our new section
Got a problem? Not sure whether to buy that annuity? Need help to keep that car going or find a job? Have pet peeves? Want ideas to make life easier, or tips for seniors?
Look to Kokua, a new section full of suggestions and advice on a wide variety of everyday issues.
Kokua Line, a popular mainstay of the paper written by June Watanabe, moves from the Hawaii section to head up the new section. The Sunday Wall Street Journal pages, with unmatched coverage of personal finance and consumer issues, leave the Sunday Business section to join Kokua.
Also in Kokua, which will be section C:
» Mike Allen, a senior editor at Popular Mechanics, answers questions about car maintenance in Drive It Forever.
» Nick Corcodilos focuses on job-hunting.
» Editors of Real Simple help you simplify your life.
» Michael Fox, D.V.M., answers questions about veterinary care and health and safety issues.
» Jim Miller, author and NBC Today Show contributor, covers topics important to seniors.
» Really? The New York Times investigates popular claims to determine whether they are real.
Kokua is designed to complement the other sections of the Sunday Star-Bulletin, producing a package to not only inform and entertain but also to provide hope and help in dealing with life's daily challenges.
As part of the changes, the first section now includes separate Nation and World pages, providing an overview of non-Hawaii news in one section. The Hawaii section follows, carrying local news not on page A1. The weather report moves to the second page of Hawaii. The Science page moves to the Monday Today section.
