Hawaii tourism industry keeps Pearl Harbor center open

SeattlePI.com Sunday, 13 January 2019
HONOLULU (AP) — Hawaii tour companies, hotels and airlines are pitching in more than $50,000 to keep the USS Arizona Memorial visitors' center open during the federal government shutdown. The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports the money will keep the National Park Service facility staffed, its bathrooms open and its programs running for at least another week. Pacific Historic Parks CEO Aileen Utterdyke called the gesture "excellent." She runs a nonprofit organization that supports the operations of the memorial and the Park Service. Earlier during the shutdown, Pearl Harbor nonprofits and Hawaii's state tourism agency provided funds to keep the visitors center open.
