HONOLULU — A measure requiring building permits for one- and two-family dwellings on Oahu to be processed within 60 days was allowed to become law without the mayor’s signature. Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell allowed the measure to become law Wednesday, noting that he dislikes it and it could exacerbate issues at the Department of Planning and Permitting, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported. SENT: 240 words.


HONOLULU — The largest containership ever built in the U.S. has arrived in Honolulu Harbor after three years of construction. The 850-foot (259-meter) vessel, named after the late U.S. Sen. Daniel Inouye, reached Hawaii on Wednesday following its maiden voyage from Philadelphia to California this month, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported. SENT: 275 words.



LOS ANGELES — Prince Ali slammed a one-handed dunk over 7-foot Dawson Carper and gave a look in the direction of Lonzo Ball sitting baseline. Ball, the one-and-done UCLA star now with the Los Angeles Lakers, nodded. “That’s my guy,” Ali said. Ball and Indiana Pacers Aaron Holiday, TJ Leaf and Ike Anigbogu returned to their old stomping ground to see UCLA dismantle Hawaii 80-61 on Wednesday night. They visited the locker room before the game, even though only two current Bruins were on the same team as any of them. SENT: 750 words, photos.
