Need a lawyer? No problem!

This year's lawyers passing the bar exam in Hawaii are likely to have a hard time finding an opening at a law firm in the islands or elsewhere, according to a new review of the job situation.

An average of 76 openings for lawyers occurs annually in Hawaii, while 179 people with law degrees passed the Hawaii bar exam in 2009, points out the consulting firm Economic Modeling Specialists Inc. And the odds are not with them elsewhere. Nebraska is the only state where the openings exceeded the bar passers — by three jobs. Wisconsin and the District of Columbia are the only places where law degree holders need not pass the bar in order to practice law.

The lowdown on ‘Five-0,' Season 2

Fans won't get to see the sneak preview of the "Hawaii Five-0" Season Two premiere until Sept. 10, in another Sunset on the Beach red-carpet event on Queen's Beach. That's more than two months away, but already the gossip wires are lighting up with hints of what's in store.

A new love interest for McGarrett (well, duh). Tough-guy Tom Sizemore of "Saving Private Ryan," "Pearl Harbor" and "Black Hawk Down" fame is cast as a Detroit detective in a recurring role.

Will these spoilers cut into attendance at the beach? Doubtful. It's all about the party, not the story, isn't it?
