Topic From The Tropic:

Hawai’i Tsunami’s
Three tsunami’s that caused significant damage and lost on Hawai’i Island occurred in 1946,
1960 and 1975.

What The Fact?! (WTF)

Shinmachi meaning “New Town” in Japanese was a small, but thriving community within Hilo town. Shinmachi was destroyed in the 1946 tsunami. Residents refused to be defeated and rebuilt Shinmachi. A short 14 years later, Shinmachi was flattened by the 1960 tsunami.

Destination To Paradise:

South Point Hotel Casino: Locals Paradise. Featuring more than 2,100 guestrooms, South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa overlooks the famous Las Vegas Strip.

Hawaiian Legends & Mythology:

La Palazza Mansion is absolutely ripe with paranormal activity and one former resident even allegedly claimed to have been nearly strangled by an evil spirit here. Reputedly the former home of a gangster, the spooky dwelling has been referred to as “Satan’s Mansion.” The now-abandoned structure, which was built in 1959, reportedly was the site of many gruesome mob murders over the years and contains a number of secret rooms. Unfortunately, it is off limits to the public, but feel free to drive by and absorb the ghostly vibe of La Palazza Mansion.

Wikiwiki Sports:

Henderson Silver Knights finally got to play in their own newly completed Dollar Loan Center Arena. Too bad they lost 5-2 against Bakersfield. HSK hosts Rockford Monday & Tuesday night 7pm, Green Valley Henderson.

Vegas Golden Knights still looking in the playoff window. Despite 2 solid victories over the Seattle Hacken, I mean Kraken, VGK still 1 point out of the playoffs last spot. They’ve been playing well, but the other teams ahead keeep winning so they can’t make any ground on them. This could be the first time in their history that they don’t make the playoffs. 12 games left in the season, keep pushing VGK! Go Knights Go!
