Bay area blocked off for Obama visit

The Coast Guard will enforce a temporary maritime security zone in Kailua Bay beginning today to ensure the safety of President Barack Obama and his family during their visit.

The security zone will be in effect from 10 a.m. today to Jan. 5 unless canceled by the Coast Guard.

The Coast Guard is coordinating efforts with the Marines, police and other law enforcement agencies under the direction of the Secret Service.

The security zone, which will be marked by yellow buoys, includes an area of Kailua Bay from Kapoho Point west to the shoreline at Namala Place near the Castles surf spot. It also includes the adjacent channel from near Kapoho Point to a point about 150 yards south of the North Kalaheo Avenue bridge.

Anyone violating the zone is subject to a prison term of up to 25 years and a fine of up to $250,000.

Obama is expected to arrive tomorrow at the earliest. His wife, daughters and dog arrived Saturday.

UH-Hilo Director of Financial Aid Jeff Scofield said last week the financial aid office had processed 6,500 applications this year, 800 more than 2009.
