    Hello everyone,

    In these diffcult times …you should read this:

    Mililani Town is Castle & Cooke Hawaii's master-planned residential development adjacent to the Mililani Technology Park. A thriving community of over 35,000 residents, Mililani is a complete community with a variety of schools, churches, shopping centers, parks, recreation centers and a public library serving the area.
    Mililani's high quality lifestyle is reflected in its 1986 "All-America City Award." No other community in Hawaii has received this prestigious recognition.
    The climate of Central Oahu, like the rest of the island, is mild.
    Average Temperature:
    Summer: 82
    Winter: 75
    Mililani is centrally located and served by the H-2 Freeway. It is less than 20 minutes from Honolulu International Airport and only 25 minutes from Downtown Honolulu.
    The Mililani Town Association operates six recreation centers with a variety of programs and special amenities. A city-owned gymnasium also offers a wide range of opportunities. Youth sports leagues are extensive, well-organized and play a large role in the community.
    Mililani Offers:
    6 Recreation Centers
    5 Swimming Pools
    12 Tennis Courts
    15 Parks
    The Mililani Area is Served by:
    3 Shopping Centers
    3 Supermarkets
    3 Drug Stores
    60 Specialty Stores
    25 Restaurants
    5 Theaters
    11 Financial Institutions
    17 Schools
    The homes in Mililani come in a range of floor plans and price levels. All homeowners belong to the Mililani Town Association, a nonprofit organization charged with maintaining the common areas and enforcing the design standards that help to maintain good property values in the community.

    The Mililani Technology Park continues to have increased activity and presence in the community. The State Farm Claims Center had its grand opening on September 4, 1996, which was well attended by State Farm executives and public officials. In addition to the State Farm Claims Center, the State Farm Agency Field Office, a support office for the many sales offices on Oahu, Maui and the Big Island, renovated and moved into 2,000 square feet of brand new office space at the Leilehua Building.
    The Inter-National Research Institute (INRI) renewed its existing lease and headed by Lee Whitt, continues to do well in the government contracting business of command and control systems.
    We welcome BBN Corporation as our newest business at the Leilehua Building. BBN is a publicly traded NYSE firm specializing in Internet services and telecommunications systems and solutions. Last year, BBN had assets of over $249,337,000. BBN's primary business in Hawaii is serving the Department of Defense.
    The Watchtower Educational Center - Pacific, a 53,000-square-foot conference and training center, is slated for completion in March of 1997.
    Many of you may not know that Oceanic Cablevision is launching a new Internet division. They are gearing up for the next generation of modems called cable-modems, which operate at many times the speed of standard telephone modems. Cable-modems are economical to use and Oceanic, with its island-wide network of fiber-optic cable, is well positioned to take advantage of this technology.
    Castle and Cooke remains committed to developing MTP. Unlike most business parks in Hawaii, MTP is fee simple. MTP is unique because of the climate, location and design guidelines. For example, the temperature is 6 to 8 degrees cooler than other downtown Honolulu locations. Employees, especially those who live in the area, can save 2 hours per day commuting to work. This means more time at the office or with family, and less stress.

  • stephenw20

    again I asked this a week ago?

  • LDH

    Well, I'm glad to see all the money I donated being invested wisely!

    Since Jesus counseled that we would always have the poor with us, I think it's GREAT that the WBTS does nothing to help them and instead continues to increase their holdings!

    Wonderful news!

    Thanks, MacHislopp!

    So, is it just an assembly hall?

  • Farkel

    : So, is it just an assembly hall?

    Assembly Hall = Profit Center

    Profit Center = Any activity conducted by the WTS (see also "Assembly Hall")

    Kingdom Hall (see Profit Center)

    Patterson Resort Complex = "Bringing Glory to Jehovah Through Wise Use of Profit Centers"

    You get the picture. :)
