HAWAII STATE QUARTER COMMISSION NARROWS CHOICES

Speaking of Hawaii, the Honolulu Star-Bulletin reported on
Friday that "Unless there's an upset, Hawaii's quarter should
feature King Kamehameha I, the word "Aloha" and the outline of
the Hawaiian Islands.

A commission narrowing down suggestions for the nation's last
state quarter yesterday placed the three icons in most of five
final sketches."

"Rounding off the top eight symbols still in contention are the
state motto (Ua mau ke ea o ka aina i ka pono: The life of the
land is perpetuated in righteousness), surfing, Diamond Head Crater,
a female hula dancer and a lei. All could still earn a spot on the
commemorative coin, which is set to be released in the fall of 2008.

About 40 commissioners, chosen to represent all islands and
different ethnic groups, spent two hours at the state Capitol
yesterday before unveiling their concepts."
