Last Memminger Column Will Run

After 31 years of continuous writing for Honolulu newspapers, Charley Memminger’s run will end with his last Charleyworld column on May 30. The new Honolulu Star-Advertiser, the result of a merger, will not be picking up his column on a freelance basis. 

Memminger began his three times a week humor column “Honolulu Lite” in 1992 during his 30 years of employment with the Honolulu Star-Bulletin and is a frequent winner in the National Society of Newspaper Columnists writing contest.

Last year he took a layoff when the paper took drastic steps to stay in business. He soon began writing “Charleyworld,”  a once-a-week freelance column for the Advertiser.  Memminger admits it will be strange not writing a newspaper column after so many years. 

Memming is the author of a book  “Hey, Waiter, There’s An Umbrella In My Drink” available on, and is trying to find an agent for his new novel “Kahala Road.”

He remains optimistic, “It’s been fun and we have many marvelous things in the works .. stay tuned …”
