Hawaii Kai Fourth of July fireworks canceled, says organizer

July 4, 2012 at Maunalua Bay

HAWAII KAI, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow)- Hawaii Kai will celebrate Independence Day 2013 without a firework show.

The Maunalua Communities Foundation (MCF) on Thursday announced, " Unfortunately this year's event will not feature fireworks because as of April 30 MCF has not received enough sponsor funding to afford the pyrotechnic display which represents 60 percent of the budget."

"We have explored all the alternatives to shooting the fireworks from a barge in the bay (most expensive option)," explained Dianne Glei, 2013 event chair. "However, we could not find a suitable land site and even when the fireworks company worked to provide us with a reduced-cost option, it was still too expensive based on our funding projections.

Honolulu police arrest woman who claimed to find baby at Sandy Beach

Keala K. Simeona

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow)- Detectives have determined that the female who reported finding a baby at Sandy Beach on Sunday night is the baby's mother, a Honolulu Police Spokesperson tells Hawaii News Now.

One day after the story of a newborn girl being found unclothed and unharmed on the east Oahu shore made national headlines, police said 21-year-old Keala K. Simeona, who brought the baby to the hospital, is actually her mother.

The Makiki resident was arrested at HPD's main station for allegedly filing a false police report and released after posting $250 bail. Additional charges are not being pursued at this time, according to police.

Original reports from officials stated that the baby was discovered near the water sometime after 11 p.m. Sunday after a woman reported hearing her crying.
