Council candidate challenging election loss

KALIHI (HawaiiNewsNow) - Martin Han said Honolulu City Council candidate Joey Manahan illegally placed his campaign banners within 200 feet of two polling places on Primary Election day.

"We did document it and we gave it to the necessary authorities," Han said.

In a complaint filed with the Hawaii Supreme Court, Han said a Manahan banner inside the entrance to Moanalua High School may have unfairly influenced undecided voters. Han said the polling captain removed Manahan's banner after he complained.

"We need to make sure we hold these politicians accountable for their actions. That's why we filed," he said.

Han also alleges Manahan pressured absentee voters to vote for him during home visits with outgoing councilman Romy Cachola.

Tripler, Queen's partner to help Hawaii's children

HONOLULU (AP) - A Honolulu hospital and a military hospital are partnering to provide behavioral health services to Hawaii's children.

U.S. Sen. Daniel Inouye is expected to speak during a ceremony at Wahiawa Elementary School Wednesday for its new school-based behavioral health building.

The Queen's Medical Center has partnered with Tripler Army Medical Center and the state Department of Education to expand Tripler's behavioral health services to children and families of civilians or non-Department of Defense dependents.

Tripler has had a school behavioral health team for more than a decade and this is the first time the services will be expanded outside the Army community.
