          Video by KENT NISHIMURA | The Honolulu Advertiser At Sea Life Park, dolphin mother Hi'iaka gave birth to a healthy girl on July 6. Today, mom and baby were revealed to the media, with a blessing by kahu Ka'imiloa Dahang to welcome the new arrival. "We've kept the good news under wraps for a few weeks to allow the mother and child the privacy they need to stay healthy and strong," said Jesus Bravo, general manager. The baby, yet to be named, will have two names: a Hawaiian name and a Japanese name. The Hawaiian name will be given by kahu Ka'imiloa Dahang. The Japanese name will come from the citizens of Japan, in an upcoming contest. "We want her to have a Hawaiian name for spiritual reasons and a Japanese name to celebrate the strong ties Hawaii has with Japan." The baby weighed 40-45 pounds at birth and was 45 inches long. She is nursing around-the-clock under the watchful eye of caretakers. Curator Jeff Pawloski said, "Hi'iaka eats 32 pounds of fish per day, a 40% increase because she is nursing." "Hi'iaka will nurse the baby for two years. Eventually, the baby will be part of the breeding program at Sea Life Park when she reaches maturity at seven to nine years old," said head animal trainer, Andrew Scullion. Most of the dolphins at the Park were born in captivity. "Out of the 20 dolphins, 65% of them were born here at Sea Life Park," said Pawloski. In the large pool, Hi'iaka, with her baby swimming closely, swam in circles, joined by her other daughter Lupita and her half-sister, Adela. Starting on Friday (7/31), Sea Life Park visitors will be allowed to see the baby dolphin on guided tours.

                Video by: Kent Nishimura/The Honolulu Advertiser Tournament co-chairs Royce Sonnenberg and Barbara North were convinced competitive women's golf was still popular here. They believed the low turnout that ended the event in 1999 — after more than 30 years — was more about the public perception of OCC as a course that caused nightmares for golfers with its radical and relentless hills, weather chills and putting green thrills. With the encouragement of head pro Andrew Feldmann, they reworked what used to be a low-net stroke play championship into a modified Stableford format. Those in Championship Flight the last two days got one point for bogey, two for par, three for birdie and four for eagle. Golfers in the other flights earned the same set of points, but used net scores with their handicaps.

                • Three Wheeling around Oahu

                  There's a three-wheeled newcomer on the streets of O'ahu — the Mini Coupe — although it's actually a two-seater moped. Mini Coupe Hawaii sales manager Jacob Wankasky said the company started renting the brightly colored little vehicles in February from a fleet of 31 based at the Hawaiian Monarch Hotel on Waikiki's Niu Street. He said the company bought the coupes from a previous owner who had purchased them three years ago but needed to get legal approval for the three-wheeled two-seaters. Wankasky said that came through last year. Despite a current downturn in tourism throughout the state, Wankasky said business is picking up a little more each week, especially on sunny summer days.

                  • City workers dump rubble in Oahu stream without permit

                    When environmental activist Carroll Cox charged last week that city crews had been illegally dumping tons of concrete rubble in Ma'ili'ili Stream and threatening the habitat of endangered wildlife, he called the unpermitted activity an outrage. Yesterday, as he examined the city's attempt to clean up some of the mess at the Leeward O'ahu state waterway over the weekend, he got upset all over again. "It is just as bad to hurry out here and clean it up without any specifications," grumbled Cox, who said city whistleblowers had tipped him off to some 300 truckloads of sidewalk concrete rubble that had been dumped in the stream over the past months. While hundreds of tons of concrete remain in the channel, Cox said that heavy equipment had improperly removed what he estimated to be 110 tons of concrete from one edge of the stream on Saturday.
