"Building for Comfort & Savings," a free seminar by Graham Builders from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday at Honolulu Country Club, promises the lowdown on how to design a home that "tames the energy beast" and conserves water. Reservations required: Caryn Lau, 593-2808, ext. 108 or caryn@grahambuilders.com.

It will be distributed to middle schools and public libraries statewide.

"My Hawai'i Story Project" includes student authors Shae Chambers, Christelle Matsuda, Kelianne Miyaoka and Jessica Yamada ('Iolani School), Bichdiem Pham (Jarrett Middle School), Sierra Jackson and MeiLan Sim (Kailua Intermediate School), Cassidy Apo, Auli'i Fisher, Kayla Ganir, Keoni Kahiapo, Teancum "T.K."
