GRIFFIN, Ga. — “Life happens,” Stacey Abrams instructs a small but boisterous crowd in a sun-drenched park south of Atlanta. She says: Your car breaks down. Your child gets sick. Could happen on election day. So, vote early. Today.

And the fact that the pair of best friends were able to surf on the same team during the Tombomb Wahine Classic made it all the more memorable.
HAWI — His was a mind enthralled by animals from the start — reptiles first and foremost, a fascination planted when Paul Breese was a young boy. Born in Minneapolis, orphaned early, then raised in California, he kept a pet tortoise in his formative years, as he did later in life: George, a dark brown tortoise who’s been hunkered down for decades in a backyard pen just outside of Hawi.
HILO — Every year, representatives of the state’s four county councils get together to draft a wish list of priorities for the upcoming session of the state Legislature. This year, Honolulu has two proposals, Kauai has five, but Hawaii County has just one request — lifeguards for Kua Bay.
KAILUA-KONA — A jury this week acquitted a Kailua-Kona man charged with sexually assaulting a woman last April in Kailua Village.
