KANEOHE, Hawaii - Gov. Neil Abercrombie has appointed Lt. Gov. Brian Schatz to replace Daniel K. Inouye in the U.S. Senate, opting against Rep. Colleen Hanabusa, whom the late senator had wanted as his successor. In a news conference at the state capital Wednesday, Abercrombie said “nothing was preordained” as he and other state Democrats considered possible replacements for Inouye. “I asked how best could we ensure that Hawaii remain strong in the long run,” Abercrombie said, adding that rebuilding the state's seniority in Congress was a priority.

The former chairman and now ranking Republican on the influential U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee, Stevens is known as a master of pork barrel politics, with a record of channeling billions of federal dollars to his home state. He has brought home so much federal funding, in fact, that the cash has been given a special name: Stevens money. "It's hard to put your finger on anything in Alaska that he hasn't had his finger on," said Democratic state Rep. Mike Doogan.

But for those who want to know, the veteran legislator who presided Tuesday over the opening session of the congressional investigation into the Iran- contra scandal has an "easy" version for non-Japanese speakers.

Sen. Daniel K. Inouye's colleagues praised him Wednesday as a man of "selfless demeanor" and intentions despite his acknowledged judgment error in backing a U.S.-financed school project in France for North African Jews. The speeches on the Senate floor came a day after Congress--at Inouye's request--killed an $8-million project to build schools in France for North African Jews. The Senate, by a voice vote, approved a House-passed bill late Tuesday.

During the Cold War 1960s, military strategists in Hawaii wanted a direct route to move troops from one side of Oahu to the other. The $1.3-billion solution finally opens this month--25 years late and 18 times more expensive than the original estimate. The H-3 freeway, 16 miles long and four lanes wide, was scheduled to open on Friday after the traditional green-leaf lei is untied. Critics say it's a colossal road to nowhere.
