Due to a "meltdown" of our computer systems around the Christmas holidays, many corrupted files found their way into our January print edition of the Oahu Island News. This resulted in files that were not proofread being printed with numerous typographic errors. We tried at press time to repair the damaged files but were unsuccessful.
We regret so much this occurred and have taken measures to ensure this doesn't recur by preparing redundant files on several systems.
Our sincere apologies to our readers and advertisers.
