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.

Camden High dropped a 74-62 decision to St. Bernard (Calif.) in the semifinal round of the fourth annual Iolani Prep Classic last night. The loss ended Camden's 31-game winning streak and prevented coach Clarence Turner from posting his 400th career victory. Turner, now in his 17th year at Camden, has compiled a 399-51 record, a winning percentage of .887. Denny Brown, a 6-foot-5 junior, scored a game-high 28 points to pace Camden (1-1), which never recovered from a 31-23 halftime deficit.

Question: I received a save-the-date from my niece for a wedding in Hawaii. While we can afford to go to such a wedding, we recognize that many people in her family will not be able to attend. We feel this is pretty thoughtless to family members with limited funds and mobility. She also is planning to move to Hawaii soon after she graduates from college. But she doesn't have a job there. When I graduated from college, I moved back home with Mom and Dad for a few months until I could find a job and make it on my own. Good jobs are not easy to come by, but I think she really expects that one will magically appear.

VILLANOVA HAS has lost five games. Four were by a combined 26 points, including an overtimer. The other was by 23. So which one do you suppose most folks remember, even though it happened nearly four months ago? Maybe that's because it happened against the team the Wildcats are playing next. "It's the most enjoyment I've ever had getting my butt kicked," is how coach Jay Wright described that 78-55 loss to Oklahoma in Hawaii on Dec. 7. "Every time there was a timeout, they'd show five guys who survived Pearl Harbor.

John Y. Gotanda, dean of the Villanova Law School, will leave that job in June to take over as president of Hawaii Pacific University in Honolulu. Gotanda, who taught for more than a decade at the law school and held various administrative posts before being named dean in 2011, took over during a time of upheaval and trauma. No sooner had he been named dean than the law school disclosed that admissions data for incoming students had been falsified for an undetermined number of years, an apparent attempt to raise the school's position in the U.S. News & World Report rankings.

He saw Charles Woodson, Richard Sherman, Adrian Peterson and the other brightest stars in the NFL. It was validation for Jenkins, the Eagles safety who received a Pro Bowl invitation Monday night for the all-star game on Sunday. Each day this season, Jenkins walked through the corridor at the Eagles' practice facility that is adorned with pictures of the franchise's all-time Pro Bowlers.

HONOLULU - Despite sweltering conditions inside of Pearl Harbor's Bloch Arena, Villanova had trouble heating up in its visit to Hawaii.

Oklahoma guard Isaiah Cousins went 4 for 4 from behind the arc and led five Sooners in double figures with a game-high 19 points, 6 rebounds and 10 assists.

Tiki's Restaurant on Waikiki Beach provides all that a visitor to Honolulu expects: a superb view of the setting sun melting into the Pacific, flaming tiki torches casting dancing shadows, fruity drinks served in coconuts. But a few delights are unexpected, such as entrées featuring locally sourced Kahuku corn and arugula, with organic herbs from the base of the nearby Ko'olau Mountains. Farm-to-table offerings in a tropical paradise? Agriculture and tourism have long been two of Hawaii's main industries, so it makes sense that "agritourism," which exposes visitors to the state's unique food culture, would follow.

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.
