Hotbed of Hawaiiana??

How A Massachusetts Library Became ‘A Hotbed of Hawaiiana’

WORCESTER, Massachusetts — In a most unlikely location, a stately building 40 miles from the nearest seaport in a gritty former industrial city, there’s an astonishing stash of centuries-old memorabilia and historical curiosities from Hawaii.

A large collection of early Hawaiian books, pamphlets and engravings is housed and lovingly preserved at a modern archive bearing the old-fashioned name American Antiquarian Society, located on the fringe of downtown Worcester.

“Worcester is not a place people think of as a hotbed of Hawaiiana, but it is!” said Elizabeth Watts Pope, curator of books for the society, a 205-year-old institution that is one of the largest repositories of early printed materials in the Americas.

According to a lawsuit that the Cramers filed last week, Yeamans also had a look at their garden and snapped some pictures that he shared with the Buffalo Township Police Department, which is why a bunch of rifle-wielding drug warriors invaded the couple’s home two days later.

Hawaiian Stores Reporting An Uptick In Spam Thefts

The owner of one store next to a bus stop in Honolulu says shoplifters are coming in during busy times, and instead of swiping alcohol — a typical target — he’s noticed they’re grabbing cans of Spam.

“I mean you try to keep an eye on it but if they run you just can’t leave the counter and chase them. So you just got to take the hit,” he told Hawaii News Now.

He’s not alone in this wave of crime against canned meat: Honolulu police say a man lifted an entire case of Spam from another store this month. Police are offering a $1,000 reward in that case
