Elvis sighting raises more questions than answers

He may have even eaten like Elvis, although we have only anecdotal evidence to support this. With so much delicious barbecue, everyone ate like Elvis.   The …

Get Martin!”   On those occasions we can’t think of anyone whom we would rather answer the call – or represent us as our 2013 Hawaii Employee …
