Know your boundaries

At long last, after controversy and court challenges, the state Elections Office published the new political boundaries drawn up by the state Reapportionment Commission.

It’s worth the time to look them up: The boundaries determine what voting districts you’re in for the next 10 years, beginning with this year’s election.

Of course, the descriptions of the new boundaries for the state House and Senate districts are necessarily very detailed and precise — they filled four pages in yesterday’s Star-Advertiser.

They can also be found online at and at selected public libraries.

Wie shares what she’s learned

Hawaii’s golfing trio were off to a rocky start at Thursday’s opening of the LPGA tour in California, but they have reason to be optimistic as the year goes forward.

"Get to know people," Michelle Wie advised Ayaka Kaneko and Stephanie Kono at the third annual Kia Classic at La Costa Resort and Spa. "Have an open mind about everyone. Sometimes you get a little shy when you’re first out here."

Wie and Kono, both Punahou School graduates, will be receiving their college degrees in June, Wie at Stanford and Kono at UCLA.

Kaneko, who moved to Hawaii from Japan at age 12, turned pro three years ago and earned conditional LPGA status last year.
