User-submitted facts and corrections:

  • The links for Kailua(Oahu Is.,36,513) and Kailua Kona(Hawaii Is.,9870) both lead to Kailua(Oahu,36,513) These are two seperate cities on seperate Islands. Please give Kailua Kona it\'s proper name and information.Thank you:)
  • The maps for the smaller of Hawaii\'s two towns named Kailua are incorrect; they show the larger of the two. The smaller Kailua (often called Kailua-Kona) is on Hawaii Island (\"the Big Island\"), not Oahu.
  • All of the information posted in the Kailua Oahu segment that is between \"Other Hospitals and Colleges/Universities with over 2000 students\" is actually information for Kailua-Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii. After that, the K-12 school information is correct but the radio/TV station information is for Kailua-Kona.
