~~<p><strong>Baby makes his debut along congested H-1</strong><br />
<br />
Paramedics helped deliver a baby during rush hour Wednesday on the H-1 freeway near the Kunia Road off&shy;ramp.<br />
<br />
Police were escorting a woman to the hospital in heavy traffic, but the birth was progressing too quickly so paramedics were called to help, said Emergency Medical Services Assistant Chief Wayne Kruse.<br />
<br />
The healthy boy was born on the side of the freeway at 7:17 a.m.<br />
<br />
Mother and son were then transported to a hospital.<br />
<br />
It was the second time in six days that EMS and police helped deliver a baby on H-1. A 23-year-old woman gave birth to a healthy girl Friday near the Likelike Highway onramp eastbound.<br />
<br />
<strong>Board OKs cash bridge for UH-West Oahu<br />
</strong><br />
The University of Hawaii Board of Regents approved a short-term cash advance for UH-West Oahu construction on Wednesday as a bridge until an $18 million loan is delivered. The advance will come from the university&rsquo;s bond system for a six-month term, the university said.<br />
<br />
The $18 million loan from a Hawaii limited partnership associated with CanAm Enterprises LLC is currently in escrow and was expected to be released this summer. The loan is now expected to be released in October, UH said.<br />
<br />
The funds for the loan are currently in escrow and are awaiting the federal government&rsquo;s approval under an immigrant investor program, UH said.<br />
<br />
This loan is the final package of financing for the $173 million construction budget for the West Oahu campus.<br />
<br />
<strong>Endangered millerbirds moved to Laysan</strong><br />
<br />
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and conservation groups have moved more endangered birds from Nihoa Island to Laysan Island to improve the species&rsquo; chances of survival. <br />
<br />
The agency said Tuesday biologists captured 26 millerbirds on Nihoa and moved them to Laysan in the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument last month. <br />
<br />
They are the second group to move to Laysan. <br />
<br />
A self-sustaining millerbird population on Laysan will help protect the species if a hurricane or alien disease hits Nihoa and wipes out the population there.&nbsp; &nbsp;<br />
<br />
Two biologists will remain on Laysan through the end of October to monitor the birds, and one through the winter.</p>~~
