Happy New Year!  January is the time of year when most people in the Northern Hemisphere dream they were in a warmer climate.  To hopefully make you feel warmer, at least in spirit, the following headlines were all selected from recent editions of the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.  Each of the five is a different letter-for-letter substitution.  All five are derived from the same mixed alphabet at different settings against itself.
