CTY Kam-Hilo 1 - The Hilo statue of Kamehameha I, after just six years in the salty air, has suffered damage visible as the red areas on the king's shoulders and speckled areas throughout his clothing. Signs explaining the significance of the area were to be erected today (1/16) and restoration of the statue is to start next month. Star-Bulletin photo by Rod Thompson. 2002 Jan. 15
