Obamas Out & About, Democratic Party Decision, Jake Shimabukuro

FIRST FAMILY CHRISTMAS

The Obamas are making the most of their holiday in Hawaii. The first family went hiking at Maunawili Falls over the weekend and the President hit the links at Marine Corps Base Hawaii Klipper Golf Course. President Obama also visited his grandfather's grave at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific at Punchbowl after paying his last respects to Senator Daniel Inouye yesterday. We have a slideshow of Presidential pictures at HawaiiNewsNow.com.

MORE MEMORIALS FOR THE LATE SENATOR

There are more memorials planned for Senator Inouye. There will be a service on Thursday on the Big Island at the Afook-Chinen Civic Auditorium. Another is planned this Friday on Kauai.

DEMOCRATIC PARTY DECISION

The Democratic Party of Hawaii will meet on Wednesday to discuss who will fill Senator Inouye's vacant seat. So far, six people have officially applied. The latest? Former Congressman Ed Case and DLNR Deputy Director Esther Kiaaina. Senator Inouye's personal pick Congresswoman Colleen Hanabusa, Lieutenant Governor Brian Schatz and State Senators Will Espero and Donna Mercado Kim.
