DENNIS ODA / DODA@STARADVERTISER.COM Pedestrians crossing Kaahele Street in front of the Newtown Recreation Center in Aiea now have the option of carrying bright orange flags to make them more visible to motorists. A pilot program that makes the flags available on both sides of the street was launched Thursday. Ralph Portmore and his wife, Paki, were the first to use a flag.
