Marathon works through problems
Honolulu Marathon president James Barahal is apologizing to as many as a couple of thousand of Sunday's runners whose finishing times weren't recorded.
Barahal says there were multiple problems with the race's new computerized timing system. He says the race's timing company cited generators going out and computers rebooting.
Runners who completed the race but were affected by the problems were listed as non-finishers.
Race officials say tapes from video cameras that recorded the finish line will be consulted. They say affected runners will be mailed their completion certificates with their finishing times. The process is expected to take up to a month.

'Swords' Kussler is player of week
Chaminade forward Stewart Kussler was named the PacWest Player of the Week in men's basketball yesterday.
Last week, Kussler led the Silverswords to a 1-1 record in the Sonoma State tournament and was named to the all-tournament team. He averaged 18 points in the two games and shot a combined 14-for-16 from the field.
