By Bob Sigall

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Jan 17, 2014

~~<p>John Clark spoke to my Downtown Exchange Club recently about the warning markers that Japanese fishermen placed around Oahu in the 1930s where others had been killed while fishing. It's an interesting story and the subject of his seventh book, &quot;Guardian of the Sea: Jizo in Hawaii.&quot;</p>
<p>Clark was a lifeguard at Sandy Beach from 1970 until 1972. The job inspired him to write his first book, &quot;Beaches of Oahu,&quot; which was published by the University of Hawaii Press in 1977.</p>
