Waikiki rep sets up
golf course debate

Republican state Rep. Galen Fox is bringing in the experts to talk about Gov. Ben Cayetano's plan to turn the Ala Wai Golf Course into a major Honolulu park.

The meeting will feature a debate between the leading proponent and opponent of the golf course plan.

Fox, who represents the Waikiki district, will have David Blane, lead state planner for the project, and Lionel Acno, president of the city golf advisory board, talk 7 p.m. Thursday.

The program will be held at the Ala Wai Elementary School. The school's parking lot will be open for the event.


One of the state's fastest-growing political districts, the Ewa Beach-to-Makakilo 20th Senatorial District, has grown by one more.

Democratic state Sen. Brian Kanno's family contributed on Friday to the population explosion as his wife, Lorrie, gave birth to Kaulana Kanno, an 8-pound, 10-ounce baby girl.

Baby Kaulana joins older sister, Keolanui, who celebrated her second birthday Oct. 8.


The Hawaii Republican Party has formed a Hawaii Educators for Bush committee. It is part of a national GOP effort to enlist the help of schoolteachers for Texas Gov. George W. Bush's presidential campaign.

Local Educators for Bush coordinators are Jan Shishido in Kahului and Ernest Yaniguchi of Kaneohe.

"Educators for Bush is a grass-roots coalition designed to gather support from educators throughout Hawaii for Gov. Bush's education reform agenda," said Andrew Malcolm, a Bush campaign spokesman.
