TOP STORIES: From the Windward side of Oahu, students from Kainalu Elementary (the only elementary school now producing stories for HIKI NŌ) follow the life journey of Alan Nagao, a Thalidomide baby who came into the world with birth defects, was teased and ostracized as a child, became a poster boy for the Easter Seals, then grew up to be a yoyo master and kite entrepreneur.
