Cherry Ulep's depiction of three nene
will represent Hawaii in Washington, D.C.

Take a gander
at winning nene

Thirteen-year-old Cherry Ulep's painting of three nene will represent Hawaii in June's Federal Junior Duck Contest in Washington, D.C. Ulep's work will compete with entries from other states for a prize of $2,500 and a trip to our nation's capital.

The Kalakaua Middle School student used a combination of oil pastels and color pencils for her work.

Celestino Matutino Jr., a 14-year-old, also from Kalakaua, won second place in the local contest, and 15-year-old Jordan Bautista of Farrington High School took third place.

Twelve winning images submitted by young Hawaii artists will be on view at the Honolulu Zoo duck display through May 27.

Entry forms for the year 2000 contest will be mailed in October.

Adventure Guide to Hawaii

By John Penisten
Hunter Publishing
400 pages; softcover $15.95

Though "Adventure Guide to Hawaii" offers some stock recommendations (The Kodak Hula Show is a "must see"), it also has a lot of ideas designed to appeal to the active traveler.

The book covers Oahu, Maui, Molokai, Lanai, Kauai and the Big Island. It has recommendations about everything from restaurants to hang gliding companies.

Kama'aina may not find much that is new here, unless they are visiting an island with which they are unfamiliar, but it would be a good tool for malihini residents to learn more about the opportunities that exist in their new home.

Author John Penisten is a professional photographer and resident of Hilo.
