HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Job Quest is tomorrow at Blaisdell. The job fair will feature 120 employers. That's good. But this is better. If you go there you will see five separate building contractors and subcontractors. Hiring in construction. Three construction unions will be there, too... plumbers, carpet and the electrical union IBEW.

Solar power news! It's the first big solar power project for JHawaiian homelands... five megawatts when it's done... at Kalaeloa. That'll be one of the biggest solar arrays anywhere.

The key ingredient on most solar panels is polysilicon. Honolulu-based Hoku Corporation borrows another $10 million from China merchants bank to continue work on its Idaho polysilicon plant.

The Wells Fargo foundation... nonprofit arm of Wells Fargo home loans... has awarded a $40,000 grant to the Hawaii Home Ownership Center. The center counsels first-time homebuyers.

Juicy Couture plans a third store on Oahu - Pacific Business News says it will open in time for holiday shopping season in the former Anne Klein space at Waikele Premium Outlets.

Fall fashions are on display now at the french couture line 'Princess Tam-Tam' at Royal Hawaiian Center. Their slogan is deshabillez-vous en princesse, which sort-of means undress royally.
