Another Sign of Recovery on Maui

Pacific Business News just reported that airlines flying to Hawaii from the mainland will wincrease seat capacity by 2.1% through October. And October is one of our slowest visitor months!

On a national scale, company layoffs shrank about 6.5% last week vs.the week before, according to the Labor Department, as companies prepare to ramp up production to replenish their depleted stockpiles of goods.

Although retail sales are still sluggish, apparel discounters like Ross, TJ Maxx and Marshalls chains all had sales gains in July that well exceeded Wall Street estimates.

I'm looking forward to a robust winter '10!
