The Hawaiian honeymoon will be wonderful - especially after the torture of your dithery mother's wedding plans and the reception with loudmouth Cousin Bruno. Although you'd like to, you can't just skip the ceremony. It wouldn't be proper. But you can let professionals plan your wedding in Hawaii and leave Bruno back home. More than 150 couples get hitched every year in the private tropical gardens of the Damien Waring Estate, not far from Waikiki. The oceanfront landscaping, with its amazing flowers, tropical birds and waterfalls, was designed as a background for photographer Waring's wedding portraits.

Hurricane Fernanda veered away from Hawaii and headed harmlessly out to sea, leaving residents breathing easier after causing only minor damage along the islands' scenic beaches. Weather forecasters lifted a hurricane watch for the entire island chain and declared the threat all but over. "It was definitely a close call and now we're elated to see Fernanda leaving the neighborhood," said Tim Craig, lead hurricane forecaster at the National Weather Service office in Honolulu.

King Rice hit a driving scoop shot at the buzzer last night to cap a 10-0 run in the final minute and lift North Carolina (No. 7 AP and UPI) over James Madison, 80-79, in the opening round of the Maui Classic in Lahaina, Hawaii. The Tar Heels will meet Villanova in a semifinal tonight. James Madison led, 79-70, with 1 minute, 15 seconds left after a free throw by Fess Irvin. That was the Dukes' last point as North Carolina nailed a long jumper, two three-pointers and Rice's dramatic shot for the win. Steve Hood, a transfer from Maryland, led James Madison with 32 points, William Davis had 20 and Irvin, a transfer from Louisiana State, had 13. Kevin Madden led five Tar Heels in double figures with 19 points.

IT TOOK Mississippi most of the game to put things together, but when the Rebels did, they quickly took over. Murphy Holloway scored 18 points and Mississippi pulled away in the final minutes to defeat Hawaii, 81-66, Tuesday in the fifth-place game of the Diamond Head Classic in Honolulu. Nick Williams and Marshall Henderson scored 16 points each for the Rebels (10-2), who broke away from a game tied at 63 to finish on an 18-3 run. "I was proud of the fact that our guys at the end of the game made some adjustments, came up with some loose balls, defensively got a couple of stops, a couple key rebounds allowed us to get out in the open floor and stretch the game," Mississippi coach Andy Kennedy said.

Staying at Hawaii would have been the easy choice for June Jones. It was the challenge of rebuilding a tattered football program that led him to take the coaching job at Southern Methodist, which stumbled to a 1-11 record this season. "Where you are now excites me because the only way is up, and I am good at going up," Jones said yesterday in Dallas. The introduction of Jones at a booster-packed press conference ended the nation's longest college coaching search this year.

The television is always on in Herman Frazier's office here so that he can keep up with what's happening on the mainland, but he doesn't stay glued to it for long. There are constituents to meet, commercials to make, deals to be done for the University of Hawaii's athletic department. "You have to understand that the people here have true feelings," Frazier said. "They love this state. They love this university. And you just can't come with outside ideas and think you know it all. You've got to be able to work with the people and work it all out. " For the last three years, Frazier, 50, has done just that as Hawaii's athletic director, putting down roots thousands of miles from his native Philadelphia while trying to build up the only game in town in his new state.

Multiple Temple sources have confirmed a Honolulu Star-Advertiser report that the Owls are trying to schedule a football game with Hawaii at Honolulu's Aloha Stadium in December. After rejoining the Big East in March, Temple (3-3) was left with only 11 games on this season's schedule. Since then, the Owls have been attempting to schedule a 12th opponent, to make it easier to get the six wins needed to become bowl-eligible for the fourth consecutive season. One source said discussions with Hawaii have been on and off since August.

For some, making the decision to leave Hawaii - especially when you are there on someone else's dime - would be the working definition of paradise lost. That's not the case for Keith Kirkwood. After he opened some eyes at Hawaii last season, the wide receiver looked to be all set to play an important role for the Rainbow Warriors in 2014. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound Kirkwood established himself as a stretch-the-field receiver, catching 12 passes for 250 yards and four touchdowns as a freshman.

HANA, Hawaii - About 3:30 every afternoon, the Hertzes, Avises, and Budgets - a veritable red and white wave of compacts, convertibles, SUVs, and generic four-doors - surge out of town carrying thousands of day-trippers back to their glittering resorts in central and western Maui. They have experienced one of the highlights of any Hawaiian vacation - the drive along the Hana Highway, a 55-mile serpent of a road that runs past mountains half-hidden by mist, lava rocks pummeled by surf, slopes of giant green ferns, gardens of tropical plants in vibrant colors, and waterfalls tumbling out of rain forests.

SO, WHAT'S NOT to like about Hawaii? Unless maybe it's five time zones away from your home. Welcome to Keith Kirkwood's world. The wide receiver from Neptune, N.J., opted to accept a scholarship to play for the Rainbow Warriors instead of going to Rutgers as a preferred walk-on. But, after one season in paradise, he wanted to come back. "Everybody always talks about how beautiful it is," Kirkwood said. "But you can get a little tired of it, experiencing the same things every day. Your family is 5,000 miles away and you're stuck on an island with no other people you know beside the family that's your team.

TUMON BAY, Guam - It's a tropical island where the streets have no names and the trees have no birds. The place "where America's day begins" (as they like to say), Guam is a Micronesian dot 1,200 miles east of the Philippines, known mostly to those Americans who served in the Pacific during World War II, or to Vietnam-era military who passed through. A U.S. territory since it was ceded after the Spanish-American War, hot and hilly Guam is small (180,000 population) and manageable (30 miles long and 9 miles wide)

UMIKOA, Hawaii - We begin on a rutted, red-dirt trail in this tiny hamlet populated by ranch hands and their families, some 3,500 feet up Mauna Kea, the dormant volcano that - measuring 31,100 feet from its oceanic base to the top - is the world's tallest mountain. Guide Richard Lindberg is driving a taxi-yellow Kawasaki Terra-X, an all-terrain vehicle that looks like a golf cart on steroids. He stops at a gatehouse, gets out and signs a clipboard. "This way if we don't come back, they'll come looking for us," he explains.

Nearly every year that my brother and I can remember, my parents took us on family vacations. These began as simple trips to Pennsylvania attractions only an hour or two away from home, but as my brother and I grew older, our destination list expanded to include places in California, Arizona, and Europe. The trip to Hawaii this winter was our final family vacation together. My brother finished college in December and was searching for his first professional job. I was enjoying the last extended winter break I would have before completing my sixth and final semester of law school.

DESEAN JACKSON yesterday became the fifth Eagle named to the Pro Bowl this season, after Houston's Andre Johnson decided he'd seen enough of Hawaii, having been selected seven times.

He will join quarterback Nick Foles, running back LeSean McCoy and guard Evan Mathis in Hawaii for the Jan. 26 game.

My wife Patti was a science teacher at Upper Moreland for 35 years. She has a collection of sands from beaches the world over. Some are from her students' travels, and some are from hers. It's all sand from different exotic places, some in jars, some in plastic bags. On a trip to Hawaii many years ago, Patti got sand from a black beach and sand from a coral beach, both on the Big Island of Hawaii. The one beach that she wanted to get sand from was the green beach, one of only four in the world, on the farthest southern point of the United States, also on the Big Island.

My husband, David, is a walking travel encyclopedia. For 28 years, he has been game for any vacation except one - Hawaii. His rationale: No beach is worth a 12-hour plane ride. So, when our daughter, Emily, asked us to join her in Honolulu, he professed the value of mother-daughter bonding and bid us adieu. Well dear, you were wrong. Hawaii is visually mesmerizing. It blends learning and leisure perfectly. Each day we proclaimed, "Wow, Dad should really see this!" Stop one was Waikiki, a bustling metropolis with beautiful beaches.

HONOLULU - I am in the middle of a fearful seethe of fuming autos, their brake lights winking like embers in the onrushing twilight. It's a jam session, and I have made a dreadful tactical error. I have arrived here on a Friday afternoon, and now I am attempting to drive from the airport to my hotel just as the evening rush hour wave is cresting. The driver of a red Toyota, her eyes surrounded by crow's feet of cheerfulness, motions me to merge in front of her onto the freeway. I roll down my window to wave my thanks, and I'm struck by the absence of a sound.
