Most of the work is now completed. There's minor trim work, counter suupports, boxing in the fan vent, etc.
With OT where it's at, we'll get those as soon as possible.
The plan right now is to get the final updates done next week to make the kitchen fully usable.
At present, it looks like the savings for the entire remodel amounts to about $75K. Not bad.

Bylaws Updates On The Table
Basis motions made at the Local, changes have been made to the Local bylaws. As per our bylaws, two readings of the updated bylaws must be made to the Local membership, followed by a vote to accept/reject.
These readings will take place at the next two regularly scheduled Local meetings - October 17 2013 & November 21 2013, both meetings beginning at 6PM. Please plan to attend to assure you understand the changes.
Hawaii will read at their next to Unit meetings.
Voting will take place at Hawaii's and the Local's December meetings
Scholarship and Grant Applications Now Available
After a slight delay (bad webmaster), the Scholarship and Grant applications are now available. The Scholarship and Grant applications have changed, so please read thoroughly. Scholarship/Grant bylaws have also been updated.
We wish everyone the best of luck. We ask that you read and understand how the Scholarship works, and most importantly, answer the question as this is what we primarily grade on.
Kapolei Refinery Now Operated By PAR Petroleum
After Tesoro threatened to terminalize the
Kapolei refinery, cutting a significant number of jobs and harming the
local economy, various interested parties got together to find a buyer
that would keep the refinery operating as a refinery.
After some leg work, PAR Petroleum opted to buy out Tesoro's interests and keep the refinery operating. That means the living wage jobs are maintained, Hawaii maintains control of their fuel supplies (not relying solely on imports), and the local economies don't suffer from closure.
Way to go, Hawaii.
