A barren, wind-swept point near this small community will be transformed into the nation's first commercial spaceport during the next few years if the state of Hawaii has its way. State officials from the governor down are aggressively courting the international space industry with a multimillion-dollar program aimed at paving the way for companies to come here and build whatever they need to launch small payloads into orbit.

A passenger who allegedly became agitated on a flight from Los Angeles to Honolulu and charged toward the cockpit faces federal felony charges of interfering with a flight crew. Passengers and crew members overcame Santiago Lol Tizol, 37, of Mexico during the flight late Friday and restrained him. He was to appear in U.S. District Court in Honolulu today. He could get up to 20 years in prison if convicted.

A San Diego company hopes profits from its commercial island boat service will offset expected losses in its Oahu ferry service. "There's no money to be made in public transportation at $2.50 a fare," Ted Gurnee, president and chief executive officer of San Diego Shipbuilding & Repair Inc., said Wednesday. "So we are counting on and hoping that we'll make money on the commercial side as opposed to the public side." Gurnee attended a news conference called by Hawaii Transportation Director Edward Hirata to announce that the state had awarded Gurnee's company a 20-year contract to run the ferry system.

Some people find it incongruous that Hawaii, separated from the West Coast by 2,400 miles of open ocean, still is included in the federal interstate highway system. Maybe some also will find it incongruous that the new national chairman of the American Trucking Assn. is from Hawaii. He is Robert E. Lewis, 52, who was installed recently in Washington, D.C., at a convention attended by 3,800 truckers.

Hawaii's only passenger ferry between the islands embarks on a rushed launch today, but legal problems could quickly immobilize it. The Hawaii Superferry moved up its maiden voyage by two days and offered discounted $5 trips from Oahu to Maui and Kauai after the Hawaii Supreme Court unanimously ruled Thursday that an environmental review should have been required before it could start service.

Hawaii's fast new ferry has been bailed out by state lawmakers who voted Wednesday to put it back in service despite worries that it could damage the islands' environment. The House of Representatives voted 39 to 11 for an emergency measure to save the Hawaii Superferry, the final obstacle in the way of the 800-passenger, 42-mph ship that has been stalled for two months by protesters and court rulings.
