As Kaiser High School junior Aaron Nee walked through the school's library doors Thursday, he was greeted by cheers from his parents, schoolmates, faculty and other guests as the new winner of Alaska Airline's "Spirit of the Islands" Paint-the-Plane contest.

"I was surprised, just really really surprised," Nee said. "I'm practically getting a heart attack right now."

As the grand prize winner, Nee's artwork - featuring a voyaging canoe meant to depict Polynesians' first arriving in Hawaii, hibiscus flowers and the Hawaiian island chain below the phrase "Spirit of the Islands" - will be displayed on an Alaska Airlines Boeing 737-800 aircraft that will travel around the nation. In addition, Nee received a trip for four to any of the carrier's destinations and a $5,000 scholarship.

Scharsch was also hospitalized in December after suffering a heart attack at Sandy Beach.

High surf advisory for east shores extended

EAST HONOLULU, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow)- A High Surf Advisory has been extended until 6 p.m. Saturday for the east facing shores of all Hawaiian islands.

Forecasters at the National Weather Service say strong trade winds will keep surf very rough and exceeding advisory levels along east-facing shores.

Surf heights of 6 to 8 feet are expected

You can expect strong breaking waves, shore break and strong longshore and rip currents that will make swimming difficult and dangerous.

Beachgoers, swimmers and surfers should heed all advice given by ocean safety officials and exercise caution.
