O'ahu briefs

Advertiser Staff


Anglers sign up for catfishing

The Department of Land and Natural Resources will reopen Nu'uanu reservoir No. 4 for catfish fishing starting Nov. 10.

Anglers need a valid state of Hawai'i freshwater game fishing license and entry fishing card. Applications for entry fishing cards can be picked up at DLNR's visitor center/permit counter at 1151 Punchbowl St., Room 130 and from various licensing agents on O'ahu. Applications will be available Oct. 1-19.

A drawing will be held to assign each cardholder a fishing date and time.

Fishing will continue on consecutive weekends, Saturdays and Sundays only, until all anglers with assigned fishing times have been accommodated.

Each fishing day will be divided into four-hour fishing periods; a morning session from 7 to 11 a.m. and an afternoon session from noon to 4 p.m.

Anglers will be required to show a valid freshwater fishing license while fishing. Those ages 8 or younger are not required to be licensed, but must be accompanied by a licensed, supervising adult. All anglers age 15 or younger must be accompanied by a supervising adult.

The limit is two catfish per licensed angler. The next catfishing season will be in May.

For more information, call DLNR's Division of Aquatic Resources on O'ahu at 587-0100.


Senior center receiving grant

Members of the Rotary Club of Windward O'ahu have painted the Windward Senior Day Care Center and earned a $10,000 grant from the Weinberg Foundation, which will be given to the center today.

Some 30 members of the club volunteered four hours each of their time to paint the exterior of two buildings at the center on Kainalu Drive. By doing this the club earns the $10,000 grant from the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation and decides which non-profit organization will receive the money.

The grant will be placed in a fund for a new van, said Sadie Carnes, center executive director. The present van, used to provide transportation for the center's clients, is about 10 years old and needs repair.

A check for the amount will be presented to the center at a Rotary club luncheon meeting today at Mid-Pacific Country Club.

Hosts are asked to take two or more French sailors sightseeing or for other recreational activities for a few hours that day.

Radford plans fund-raiser

Radford High School students are planning a series of events Oct. 1-6 to raise money for the victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in New York and Washington.

The Radford National Honor Society is sponsoring the events, which will raise money for the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund.
