Good Things: August 6, 2010

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Let's take a look at some of the Good Things in the news...

The Outrigger Duke Kahanamoku Foundation is honoring the state's ocean sports greats. The Hawaii Waterman Hall of Fame pays tribute to nine men and women who helped establish Hawaii as the center of the watersports world.

In addition to Duke himself, Buffalo Keaulana is one of those being honored. He talked about his love of the ocean. "When you're in the water there's lot you can do, not just surfing. You can sail and fish and just swim. Enjoying the water with somebody else is even better."

Inductee Nappy Napolean said, "I enjoy the water. If I go home I watch TV, get lazy. When I come down to the beach I'm alive again."

Among the others being honored are Fred Hemmings, Rabbit Kekai, Wally Froiseth, Keo Nakama, Eddie Aikau, Rell Sunn.

The official induction ceremony will be held at the Outrigger Canoe Club on August 24th, the 12th anniversary of Duke Kahanamoku's birth.

And it's day two at UH-Manoa for the Warrior training camp. The team hits the practice field starting at 8:30 this morning. Mike Cherry will have a report on today's practice on Hawaii News Now this evening. The Warriors put full pads and start contact tomorrow. So far the reps under center for the quarterbacks have been split down the middle between last year's starter Bryant Moniz and Shane Austin who took the top spot in spring ball.
