ER filming in O'ahu

Advertiser Staff and News Services

Take two aspirin and brace yourself for Thursday's season finale of NBC's critically acclaimed "ER" drama series, shot on O'ahu over the past several days. The plot revolves around an overheated Dr. Carter (Noah Wyle, pictured) arriving in war-torn Congo (actually O'ahu) as part of a voluntary medical program. In Africa, he reunites with Dr. Kovac (Goran Visnjic) and the two heartthrob docs risk their lives amid a civil war.

Scenes from next season's second episode are still being shot on O'ahu and are expected to be wrapped up by May 16.

Ellis speaks on art

The free, talk is at 2 p.m. Sunday in The Doris Duke at the Academy auditorium followed by a discussion. About 100 works will be featured in Artists of Hawai'i 2003, which opens June 5.

Moms do know best

There comes a time when Mom's usual, clever self is no longer enough to please her once-adoring offspring.

A new book, "101 Secrets a Cool Mom Knows" (Rutledge Hill Press, 2003, $14.99), reveals the secrets to what cool moms know (including how to hang a spoon on your nose and throw a spiral pass). The authors also wrote "101 Secrets a Good Dad Knows," but you may have to wait for Father's Day for that one.
