HONOLULU - As the afternoon turned to early evening, I glanced out my hotel window, hoping for a glimpse of the legendary Waikiki sunset. I watched as the sun bathed the hills and hotels of the city in liquid gold before slipping into the Pacific in an orange and red explosion of color. I couldn't have asked for a better welcome to one of the world's most popular vacation destinations. Especially because I was paying only $89 a night for this view. Waikiki - where $1,200-a-night hotel rooms are commonplace - is considered unaffordable by many people.

Visitors to Oahu who realize there's more to island clothing than swimsuits and flip-flops may enjoy a visit to Honolulu's Bishop Museum , where an exhibition titled HI Fashion: The Legacy of Alfred Shaheen has been extended until Feb. 25. Shaheen is credited with elevating the Hawaiian shirt from kitsch to chic. After training as an aeronautical engineer and flying 85 missions during World War II, he spent about four decades designing colorful textiles that were then manufactured in his Honolulu factory.

Aloha and warm greetings from the 50th state, the Island State, the only state in America that once was a kingdom and alas, the only one you neglected to include in your listing of state tourist offices in the April 12 issue. We readily agree that we are unique among states and among American tourism experiences, and we would not have complained if you listed us first instead of alphabetically. However, since this is also the Land of Aloha we invite you to come visit us at our offices at 2270 Kalakaua Ave., Suite 801, Honolulu 96815, phone (808)

A group led by Aloha Chairman Hung Wo Ching and Vice Chairman Sheridan C. F. Ing agreed to pay $28.50 a share for the 40-year-old Honolulu-based airline, which shuttles passengers and cargo among the Hawaiian islands. The Ching and Ing group, which controls 40% of Aloha's 2 million shares, has acquired an option to buy an additional 21% of Aloha shares from CNS Partners at $27.50 each. The total value of the deal is about $56.5 million.

I read "Getting Its Sea Legs" [Oct. 24] with great interest. The same problems my wife and I encountered in June during a repositioning/shake-down cruise on the Pride of Aloha apparently still exist. When you pay that much money for a cruise, there is no excuse for poor service and having to pay extra to eat at one of the other restaurants. NCL, apparently, hasn't learned its lesson about taking care of passengers. Bill Sims Encinitas The Norwegian Sky was re-flagged the Pride of Aloha.

A loaf of Love's Bakery bread is a slice of life in Hawaii, as familiar to residents and tourists as flip-flops and aloha shirts. So there was no way residents would be deprived of their daily staple even if it meant having to fly the loaves a circuitous 5,000 miles through Los Angeles. On Tuesday -- thanks to bankrupt Aloha Airlines -- residents on the islands of Hawaii and Kauai were in danger of being without their ration for the first time since Robert Love, a Scotsman waylaid in Honolulu, began baking the bread in 1851.

Hello, goodbye. Hello, goodbye. Or, to the Hawaii baseball team, aloha, aloha. Aloha, aloha. A new day brought decent enough weather to complete a suspended game and begin another at Matador Field. The first ended when designated hitter Casey Cheshier kissed one aloha in the bottom of the seventh and final inning to give Cal State Northridge a spirited come-from-behind 4-3 victory.

A day after Lane Kiffin drove an ice cream truck and delivered treats to members of the Trojan Marching Band, USC's coach and his players returned to practice Friday to start game preparations for Hawaii. Kiffin still hasn't publicly chosen a flavor of the season - or the week - when it comes to a starting quarterback. And there was no media access to Kiffin or players after the Trojans' closed workout. Kiffin must decide if Max Wittek or Cody Kessler will start Thursday when USC - ranked No. 24 in the USA Today Sports coaches and Associated Press media polls - plays at Aloha Stadium.

Now imagine if Shane Victorino was actually coming off an impressive year. Seems it was impressive enough for the Boston Red Sox, who Tuesday actually signed the 32-year-old outfielder for three years and $39 million. That's a lot of money for a guy coming off a down year. Ah, Shane, the Dodgers hardly knew you. Victorino was one of the Dodgers new owners' first moves last summer, coming over from the Philadelphia Phillies at the July 31 trading deadline to end the parade of left fielders and give the Dodgers a proven leadoff hitter.

Dan Sullivan just became first mayor of Anchorage to take the oath of office while on vacation in Hawaii. On Monday afternoon, a robed Anchorage judge stood at a lectern in Anchorage before a group of city officials, interns and reporters and delivered the oath to Sullivan via a Skyped-in image of the mayor. Sullivan, who wore a Hawaiian floral-printed shirt to the ceremony, held up his hand and took the oath as the ceremony was projected on a screen back home. “Congratulations, Mayor Sullivan," said District Court Judge Brian Clark.
