Employees and guests at a local diner got an afternoon Christmas Eve surprise when President Obama stopped by to eat lunch at Side Street Inn in the Ala Moana area. POTUS was out with his daughters Sasha and Malia, and friends. The restaurant management says this was the president’s first time at the popular eatery. General manager Christopher Manabe says he didn’t think much of it when he took down a reservation request earlier in the week. “Somebody made a call a couple of days ago and put it under a different name,” he said. So you can imagine his surprise when the Secret Service showed up Saturday and said President Obama was coming instead. “We knew at the very last minute and it was very hectic,” Manabe said. “So whenever you figured out, oh, OK, the president is coming here, do I have enough crew?” The president, his daughters Sasha and Malia, and friends arrived shortly after. The first lady wasn’t with them, but we were told she has eaten at the restaurant in the past...

Sen. Mazie K. Hirono and 33 Senate Democrats sent a letter to President-elect Donald Trump urging him to oppose any efforts by Republicans to restrict federal funding from supporting Title X family planning centers. “President-elect Trump, women across the country have reason to be deeply concerned about the impact your administration could have on their health, their access to care, and therefore their economic security,” wrote the Senators. “We urge you to take clear position in favor of women’s health by supporting access to birth control and family planning services at Planned Parenthood and other Title X clinics nationwide.” The Senators call on President-elect Trump to implement the final Title X rule issued by the Department of Health and Human Services on Dec. 14, 2016. This final rule reinforces existing protections in the Title X program to ensure no qualified health care provider, such as Planned Parenthood, is excluded from eligibility for federal funding. The final Title ..

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -– The Titans didn’t leave fans with much holiday cheer after they lost an important road game with playoff implications to their AFC South divisiton rival the Jacksonville Jaguars on Christmas Eve. The game got off to a rough start and it only got worse in the third quarter. Quarterback Marcus Mariota was scrambling on a first-down throw and suffered a fractured fibula when he was grabbed around the ankles by rookie defensive lineman Sheldon Day for a sack.
