A monk seal pulled out of the ocean yesterday onto the sands of Kapiolani Beach Park, near the Wall in Waikiki. Tourists and beachgoers were kept away by yellow tape surrounding the area where the seal lay.
SIGN OF FAITH

Gary Boisclair, a Maryknoll teacher, administered ashes to Kelsie Lau and Kylie Storfer yesterday during Ash Wednesday rites at Maryknoll School. Many Christians will wear the sign of the cross on their foreheads as they begin the season of Lent, a six-week spiritual preparation for Easter. Wearing ashes as a sign of penitence became a Christian tradition by the eighth century.
