New Iz CD coming
There will be something new ("Mona Lisa"), some things true to Bruddah Iz's repertoire (updated arrangements of "In Dis Life," "Kaleohano," "Hi'ilawe") and unplugged renderings of some old favorites ("'opae E," "Over the Rainbow"). The songs have been culled from hours of previously unreleased material from the Mountain Apple vaults. The CD also will be Iz's first enhanced disc, with a photo gallery, a bio, a documentation of his achievements, some press notices, a catalog of his songs and a screensaver.

Poi as a lightweight?
As all kama'aina know, poi is a wholesome food that can help maintain a healthy lifestyle, but like any starchy food, it must be eaten in moderation.
However, since the article ran, poi has become the rage of some Mainland women seeking a quick weight-loss regimen. The Poi Co., a Kalihi-based manufacturer, has received about 1,800 e-mail messages requesting information about poi, its nutritional value, how to prepare it and how the diet "works." Most of the requests are from the Midwest and Florida.

If the shoe fits ...
Shop after physical activity, which is when your child's feet will be largest. This will ensure the best fit.
Have your child's feet measured each time you buy shoes. A child's foot can change sizes as many as 34 times before the age of 10. And don't buy your child's shoes for the long term; more than likely, the shoe will wear out before your child grows out of it.
Always have your child try on both shoes and walk around a while in them. And forget a "breaking in" period; if the shoes aren't comfortable right away, they are not a good fit.
