State roundup for August 26
Joint China-U.S. exercises set
HONOLULU (AP) — Chinese navy ships will steer into Pearl Harbor next month as part of a joint search-and-rescue training exercise with the U.S. military.
Three People’s Liberation Army ships will visit beginning Sept. 6, including a guided missile destroyer, a frigate and a supply ship.
The USS Lake Erie will act as a host ship for the mission.
While details aren’t set, Capt. Darryn James of the Pacific Fleet says sailors will conduct an at-sea search-and-rescue exercise.
James said the joint exercise shows a commitment to improved safety across the region.
Analysts say China is seeking more stability in its relationship with the United States.
It has been seven years since Chinese navy ships visited the port.
Inouye Center may cost $25M
HONOLULU (AP) — A center proposed for the University of Hawaii that would house the papers of the late U.S. Sen. Daniel Inouye could cost more per square foot than the school’s $104-million high-tech cancer center.
The estimated cost is $25 million, up by more than half since a request for design bids went out in June.
The new price was disclosed in a document discussed last week at a Board of Regents meeting.
University officials did not respond to requests for comments about the increase.
The Inouye Center would be climate controlled and house papers collected during Inouye’s five-decade career in Congress. It would also include a digital link to the Library of Congress.
Inouye died Dec. 17 at age 88.
