Aloha and warm greetings from the 50th state, the Island State, the only state in America that once was a kingdom and alas, the only one you neglected to include in your listing of state tourist offices in the April 12 issue. We readily agree that we are unique among states and among American tourism experiences, and we would not have complained if you listed us first instead of alphabetically. However, since this is also the Land of Aloha we invite you to come visit us at our offices at 2270 Kalakaua Ave., Suite 801, Honolulu 96815, phone (808)

A group led by Aloha Chairman Hung Wo Ching and Vice Chairman Sheridan C. F. Ing agreed to pay $28.50 a share for the 40-year-old Honolulu-based airline, which shuttles passengers and cargo among the Hawaiian islands. The Ching and Ing group, which controls 40% of Aloha's 2 million shares, has acquired an option to buy an additional 21% of Aloha shares from CNS Partners at $27.50 each. The total value of the deal is about $56.5 million.

I read "Getting Its Sea Legs" [Oct. 24] with great interest. The same problems my wife and I encountered in June during a repositioning/shake-down cruise on the Pride of Aloha apparently still exist. When you pay that much money for a cruise, there is no excuse for poor service and having to pay extra to eat at one of the other restaurants. NCL, apparently, hasn't learned its lesson about taking care of passengers. Bill Sims Encinitas The Norwegian Sky was re-flagged the Pride of Aloha.

A loaf of Love's Bakery bread is a slice of life in Hawaii, as familiar to residents and tourists as flip-flops and aloha shirts. So there was no way residents would be deprived of their daily staple even if it meant having to fly the loaves a circuitous 5,000 miles through Los Angeles. On Tuesday -- thanks to bankrupt Aloha Airlines -- residents on the islands of Hawaii and Kauai were in danger of being without their ration for the first time since Robert Love, a Scotsman waylaid in Honolulu, began baking the bread in 1851.

Three years after suffering one of its worst tourist season, Hawaii is taking in record amounts of visitor revenue.

The island state welcomed 622,899 visitors in the month, a 12.5% increase over the same month last year, also a new record for the month, Hawaii tourism officials said.
