Apparently, time and medicine have caught up with Hawaii County Mayor Harry Kim.  As a “precautionary measure”, doctors have installed a heart defibrillator on Kim to control some of his irregular heart patterns.  The 78-year-old Hawaii County Mayor has suffered six heart attacks, including those of 26 April and 16 June of this year.

Hawaii County Managing Director Will Okabe told reporter John Burnett that doctors have told Mr. Kim to rest a bit before resuming his duties as mayor: ” “He’s Harry Kim, man,” then added, “Knowing Harry, he’ll be back at work soon. We appreciate everybody’s good wishes and support.”
