Yo, dawg, check it out


When "American Idol" names its winner at 7 tonight on Fox, it'll be the last time for a while we'll hear judge Randy Jackson's incisive comments, such as "Yo, dawg, you were really doing your thing, dawg." No person has done more to popularize this four-letter canine corruption.

In honor of Mr. Jackson, here are five other "dawgs" we've watched over the years:

• Deputy Dawg: Cartoon character of the early '60s, a backwoods deputy sheriff.

• The Dawg Pound: Barking end-zone fans of the Cleveland Browns.

• The Dawg Pound: Barking studio audience of "The Arsenio Hall Show."

• The Dudley Dawg: Signature wrestling move used by WWE's Spike Dudley to finish off his opponents.

• The 'Dawgs: From Herschel Walker to Terrell Davis, Fran Tarkenton to Rodney Hampton, the University of Georgia football team.

Painter gains notice

"When I paint, I don't feel paralyzed," says David Ka'aihue.

That's a pretty good reason for Ka'aihue, who lost the use of his body below his neck in an industrial accident, to continue his work in oils and acrylics.

But it's the quality of his work that has attracted attention recently. Ka'aihue's paintings, which he does with a mouth stick, has been featured in a number of regional art shows, including the all-Native Hawaiian show, "Na Maka Hou: New Visions," at the Honolulu Academy of Arts.

Ka'aihue is the subject of a two-day solo exhibition, "Plantation Days: Paintings by David Ka'aihue," which opens Saturday at St. George's Church in Waimanalo. The opening reception is at 3 p.m.

Punk vs. Preppie

One's cool, the other's classic. And both fashion revivals play starring roles this spring. The best looks mix a little of each.

In the punk camp: tattoos, Converse All Stars, pink and black, studs. For preppies: pink and green, tennis socks, ballet slippers, plaid.
