The Newport Beach resident who donated a weeklong stay at her Honolulu condo to District 7 City Council candidate Dolores Otting for a fundraising raffle says she reported the accurate fair market value of a stay at the studio unit near Waikiki Beach. Otting has taken down the details of the raffle from her website and her campaign treasurer said she will probably cancel the fundraiser after two complaints questioned the source and value of donated vacations. Otting will probably give refunds to donors who purchased raffle tickets for a chance to win one of three vacation getaways to Cancun, Mexico, San Diego or Honolulu, said Otting’s campaign treasurer, Raymond Zartler.

Nearly 65 students on Wednesday celebrated the final day of Victoria Elementary School's first summer reading program. The six-week program, led by Principal Linda Tenno and the school's staff, urged students to continue reading over summer vacation to keep reading skills consistent from the end of one school year to the beginning of the next. According to Tenno, when students returned to school last year, their reading levels declined due to lack of reading over the summer. "We don't have the opportunity to send students to summer school," she said.
