Your Kohala Connection is a weekly show that features the many good people and community service projects that make Kohala such a great place to live. With interviews, updates on upcoming events and stories of Kohala’s rich history, it’s all about sharing the good news happening here in our Big Island neighborhood.


Forrest Arnold moved here to North Kohala 24 years ago after a career in the aerospace electronics business.
