Minneapolitans Travel the World

In the mid 1930s, a wealthy Minneapolis couple, Clifford and Miriam Taney, traveled around the world on several vacations. They compiled their photographs, possibly taken by a professional photographer who joined them, into photo albums that are now part of the Taney Collection at Hennepin County Library Special Collections. The collection also includes dozens of hand-colored glass lantern slides.

Most of the photographs depict the Taneys as privileged vacationers enjoying “exotic,” colonial locales, but handfuls of their photographs depict daily life in an increasingly-connected world that was, unbeknownst to most, on the brink of war.

Pictured here are, top to bottom, left to right: a giant torii, possibly in or near Tokyo; dancers at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel in Honolulu; the Taj Mahal; Victoria Falls; European women, possibly in Hungary; the Weinstadel in Nuremberg; men at a market in Taxco; a street scene in an Omdurman bazaar.

The Hale Koa Hotel

“To operate a first class hotel and recreation facility at affordable prices for military members and their families.” That’s the mission of the Hale Koa Hotel in Honolulu, Hawaii. I’d read the website and had heard positive things from other Army families before our honeymoon, but I still wasn’t quite sure what to expect from…

Jeff - Casey here. I really think you need to come back from wherever you are. There seems to be mayhem happening on the island - with everything from sentient toys and your youngest son having a rather unnatural affection for deck chairs. I thought they had just too much sun until I got a requisition from Virgil's toy penguin for a tank. Alternatively, please advise your location so I can join you.

“Ah Casey! Good to hear from you friend. I do suppose I should return home to the island. However those are some of the reasons I left in the first place! My sons have seemingly gotten out of hand, oh I wish Lucy were here to sort things out.

However if you too want to escape the chaos of the island I am currently at a hotel in Honolulu. I shall not say any more for fear the boys shall discover my exact location. If you hurry you might catch me before I leave the island in the morning to get to a safe house.

Kind regards,
Jefferson Tracy.”

Shipping company Matson to pay Hawaii $15 million over molasses spill

By Victoria Cavaliere
(Reuters) - A U.S. shipping company has agreed to pay Hawaii more than $15 million to reimburse the state for the cost of cleanup and restoration following a massive molasses spill in Honolulu Harbor two years ago, officials said on Wednesday.
About 1,400 tons of brown, sticky liquid leaked into the harbor in September, 2013, from a faulty molasses-loading pipeline used to load it onto ships operated by Matson Navigation Company, an international ocean transport company.
The 223,000-gallon spill, which is roughly equivalent to one-third of an Olympic-sized swimming pool, suffocated thousands of fish, damaged the ecosystem and closed parts of the harbor for days.
It also spurred fears predators, like sharks could be drawn to the sweet liquid floating in the harbor, a short distance from Honolulu’s busy hotel and tourist area.
The $15.4 settlement will include the removal of remaining molasses tanks at Oahu’s Sand Island Terminal and will effectively end the company’s operations in Hawaii, the state’s governor and attorney general said in a statement.
“This is one of the largest settlements for an
environmental violation in Hawaii’s history,” said Attorney General Douglas Chin. “The resources made available
as part of this settlement will now begin to restore coral and fund programs to assist with restoring aquatic life.”
Nearly $6 million of the settlement package will go toward reimbursing the state for cleanup, investigation, legal expenses, regrowing a coral nursery and as a contribution to an upcoming global conservation conference, the statement said.
Most of the money, $9.5 million, will be used to remove the remaining molasses equipment and to convert the pipeline for uses other than conveying fluids, it said.
In October, Matson paid $600,000 in restitution to the U.S. Department of Justice to go toward awareness and coral and invasive algae cleanup programs.
"Environmental stewardship is a core value in our company, so this event was a blow to all of us at Matson,” Matt Cox, president and CEO, said in a statement. “We can’t take back what happened, but we’ve done our best to make it right.”
Matson is a leading U.S. carrier in the Pacific, and operates a fleet of 25 vessels.
