Ala Moana ocean lane management working well, but don't forget aloha

The state drew a line in the sand — er, surf — a year ago at Ala Moana Beach by experimenting with setting a line of buoys to prevent collisions of swimmers and those on the stand-up paddleboards.

It looks like the experiment worked, as the state plans to extend the practice for six more months.

But even though lane management works at calm Ala Moana, the mix of swimmers, surfers and paddlers is harder to regulate in places where crowds vie for the breakers, state officials said.

It may be that, in that case, there's no substitute for a little old-fashioned good manners. Aloha, too.

Something fishy from Hawaii gets served at state dinner in D.C.

President Barack Obama and 200-plus black-tie dinner guests got a taste of Hawaii beneath the skies above the Rose Garden on Tuesday as he presented the Presidential Medal of Freedom to German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Tuna tartare, coming from Hawaii, was featured with rye crisps and a petite filet served with Maryland crab ravioli.

While the finely chopped tuna dish provided a taste of the president's home state, dessert was an apple strudel, a version of traditional German strudel, in recognition of the guest of honor.
