What An Honor
Dowling Co.'s Everett Dowling was awarded the T.S. Shin Award at this week's Maui Chamber of Commerce meeting that featured Lt. Governor Duke Aiona as head speaker. Proving that businessmen will never miss a chance to pat each other on the back, and that Dowling can get positive press in The Maui News whenever he shows up somewhere, for anything. The article this Saturday read like Dowling's yearbook. Honored many times in the past by the Chamber, Dowling has been their darling since coming to Maui in 1986 and beginning one of the largest development companies on island. Honored as "entrepreneur of the year," "fundraising professional of the year" and "all-around great guy" of the year–ok I made that one up—not to mention donating $3 million to local organizations (a pittance compared to what his developments rake in,) it's no secret Dowling will remain the golden boy in the Maui business community.

A Civil Union
Young Brothers Ltd. Sneaks into the top 10 this week after striking a new collective bargaining agreement with nearly 1/4 of its workforce taking the company well into 2011. According to an article in this week's Pacific Business News, the Seattle-based company is the State's largest inter-island shipper of goods and sewing up a good chunk of their workforce for the next few years will help them continue to reap the benefits of operation on an island archipelago where so many depend on sea transport.
