J: ALOHA EVERYONE, AND WELCOME TO THIS WEEK'S EDITION OF MAUI TV NEWS. I'M JEFF KING.

JY: AND I'M JULIE Y. MIDWAY THROUGH HER SECOND TERM IN OFFICE, GOVERNOR LINDA LINGLE ISSUED HER SIXTH STATE OF THE STATE ADDRESS THIS WEEK.

(Turn to cam) AS SHE OUTLINED HER PLANS FOR THE YEAR, THERE WERE SOME "FIRSTS" AND SOME "FINALLYS" IN THIS YEAR'S MESSAGE. MAUI TV NEWS REPORTER JEFF KING BRINGS US THE STORY.

(take state of state Pkg) IN A SPEECH THAT COVERED A VARIETY OF IMPORTANT TOPICS, THE GOVERNOR SAVED THE BIGGEST SURPRISE FOR HER BIG FINISH.

LL01: "I am proposing that we buy the 850-acre Turtle Bay property on O‘ahu’s North Shore."

WHILE MANY IN THE AUDIENCE APPLAUDED, LEGISLATORS FROM MAUI SAUID THEY FOUND THEMSELVES WITH MORE QUESTIONS THAN ANSWERS. THE CAUSE SEEMED JUSTIFIED

LL02: "And I believe this will be a defining moment for all of us – a moment that communicates to young people that we care more about their future than about our present."

STATE SENATOR SHAN TSUTSUI SAID HE WAS COMPLETELY SURPRISED BY THE PROPOSAL - BUT, AFTER SOME CONSIDERATION, BELIEVES IT MIGHT BODE WELL FOR FUTURE LAND ACQUISITIONS ON THE NEIGHBOR ISLANDS - INCLUDING HOT SPOTS LIKE LIPOA POINT AT HONOLUA BAY - OR LA'AU ON MOLOKAI. BUT THERE WERE CERTAINLY OTHER MAJOR POINTS IN THE GOVERNOR'S PRESENTATION. SHE SPENT A GOOD DEAL OF TIME ON HER INNOVATION INITIATIVE AND - TOWARD THE GOAL OF ALLOWING HAWAII'S YOUNG PEOPLE TO GROW, LEARN - AND THEN BE ABLE TO AFFORD TO LIVE AFTER THEY GRADUATE, SHE SUGGESTED AN INCENTIVE FOR THEIR PARENTS.

LL03 (lINGLE sOUNDbITE 2): "And we are asking the Legislature to pass tax deductions of up to $20,000 a year for parents or other family members saving for a child’s college education."

ON THE TOPIC OF ENERGY, THE GOVERNOR PRAISED THE EFFORTS ALREADY MADE BY CONSUMERS AND BY STATE LEGISLATORS - BUT STRESSED THAT THERE IS MORE TO BE DONE.

LL05: "To further speed our progress toward energy security and a clean energy future, the Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism is being reorganized to re-establish an Energy Division."

HER PRESENTATION REFERENCED THE AMBITIOUS PLAN TO INSTALL MAJOR PHOTOVOLTAIC ENERGY COLLECTION SYSTEMS AT STATE FACILITIES - INCLUDING KAHULUI AIRPORT.

LL04: This project has the potential to reduce Hawai‘i’s need to import 130,000 barrels of oil per year, and to generate enough power to supply about 9,000 homes per year."

ENERGY, EDUCATION, INNOVATION AND PRESERVATION...THE KEY POINTS OF THE GOVERNOR'S SIXTH STATE OF THE STATE ADDRESS - A SPEECH THAT IS ALSO AVAILABLE IN PRINTABLE FORM FROM OUR WEBSITE AT MAUI TV NEWS.COM - AND, FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, IS ALSO AVAILABLE IN SIX DIFFERENT LANGUAGES.

THIS CLOSED WITH A NOTE OF APPRECIATION FROM THE STATE'S CHIEF EXECUTIVE

LL06: "And finally, I want you to know that I truly love my job. I love being the Governor of Hawai‘i…your governor. There is no better job in the world."

REPORTING FOR MAUI TV NEWS, I'M JEFF KING.

(WMTA)(PiP-W. Maui Hosp)

J: NO DOUBT AMONG THOSE FOLLOWING THE GOVERNOR'S ADDRESS CLOSELY WERE MEMBERS OF THE WEST MAUI TAXPAYERS ASSOCIATION - THE OMBUDSMAN GROUP THAT IS KEEPING TABS ON EVERYTHING FROM THE LAHAINA BYPASS TO THE PROPOSED WEST MAUI HOSPITAL AND MEDICAL CENTER.

IT WAS ALMOST A WHO'S WHO AS GOVERNMENT LEADERS, COMMUNITY LEADERS, AND LOTS OF FAMILIAR FACES JAMMED INTO THE LAHAINA COMMUNITY CENTER LAST THURSDAY FOR THE ANNUAL MEETING OF THE WEST MAUI TAXPAYERS ASSOCIATION. THERE WAS CERTAINLY NO SHORTAGE OF TOPIC TO DISCUSS - FROM PROPOSED DEVELIOPMENTS IN WEST MAUI - TO THE EVNING'S HOTTEST ISSUE - A LONG-AWAITED HOSPITAL FOR THE GREATER LAHAINA AREA. AFTER EIGHT YEARS OF EFFORT, PROJECT DEVELOPER BRIAN HOYLE SAYS IT JUST MIGHT FLY.

Brian Hoyle, Developer, West Maui Hospital and Medical center

BH01: "We're in a position now where we feel the timing is right, with the community, the legislature and such. So we're proceeding forward."

THE 25-BED ACUTE CARE FACILITY WILL OFFIER ALL THE STATE-OF-THE-ART FEATURES A MEDICAL FACILITY NEEDS TO RESPOPND IN CRISIS SITUATIONS - AND THE FACILITY ALSO FEATURES ATTENTION ON SENIOR CARE FOR THE WEST SIDE'S GROWING POPULATION - THAT IS ALSO GROWING IN AGE. HOYLE SAYS THAT RECENTLY REJECTED PROPOSAL FOR THE MALULANI HOSPITAL IN SOUTH MAUI WILL NOT DETER THEIR DETERMINATION - BUT, INSTEAD MAKE IT STRONGER. HE ALSO SAYS THEY'RE NOT TRYING ANYTHING SECRET THAT MALULANI DEVELOPERS DIDN'T THINK OF.

BH02: "Yes, there's nothing secret about our application. It will be public. But theis is a community-based project that has the support of the community...and the legislators to make it happen. And we will make it happen."

THE OTHER THING THAT HOYLE SYAS IS WORKING IN THEIR FAVOR IS THAT THE WEST MAUI HOSPITAL WON'T SEEK TO COMPETE WITH WHAT'S CURRENTLY AVAILABLE, BUT TO WORK IN CONJUNCTION WITH EXISTING MEDICAL SERVICES AND OPTIONS.

BH03: "One of the things that came up continually with the Maui medical Task Force was to work in conjunction....to provide the services that we need on this side of the island."


(WMTA - Bypass)(PiP-map)

JY: THE OTHER MAJOR TOPIC AT LAST WEEK'S ANNUAL GATHERING OF THE WEST MAUI TAXPAYERS ASSOCIATION WAS AN UPDATE ON THE LONG-AWAITED LAHAINA BYPASS. MAUI TV NEWS REPORTER CAUGHT UP WITH COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN THEO MORRISON FOR THE LATEST.

(take bypass pkg) A PACKED HOUSE OF INTERESTED LAHAINA LOCALS - MANY OF WHOM HAVE WATCHED THE LAHAINA BYPASS PROJECT EBB AND FLOW FOR NEARLY 40 YEARS - LISTENED AS MORRISON EXPLAINED THE STATE OF THE PROJECT - NOW ON HOLD AGAIN AFTER MORE THAN 30 ACRES OF ARCHEOLOGICAL AND CULTURAL SIGNIFICANCE WERE DISCOVERED RIGHT IN THE PATH OF THE PROPOSED ROADWAY. SHE GAVE MAUI TV NEWS AN UPDATE.

Theo Morrison, Executive Dir. Lahaina Bypass Now

TM01: "What is happening right now is DOT met with linear descendants of the families that own the land...to discuss alternatives.

SO AFTER ALL THESE YEARS, THERE'S STILL NOT A GROUNDBREAKING DATE.

TM02: "Well no one will say, and that's absolutely fine right now. Wghat's important is that we take the time and do it the right way."

J: UP NEXT ON MAUI TV NEWS, MONDAY MARKED THE 79TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE BIRTH OF THE REVEREND DOCTOR MARTIN LUTHER KING JUNIOR. WE'LL TAKE YOU TO TWO MAUI CELEBRATIONS OF HIS SPIRIT AND HIS DREAM.

JY: AND REMEMBER THOSE "BIG CAT" SIGHTINGS OF A FEW YEARS AGO ON MAUI? WELL, THERE'S BEEN ANOTHER SIGHTING OF A BIG CRITTER. THIS TIME, IN SOUTH MAUI - AND THIS TIME - THERE ARE PICTURES TO BACK IT UP.

J: AND WE'LL TELL YOU ABOUT A NEW MAUI TV NEWS PARTNERSHIP THAT'S TAKING SHAPE. THAT AND MORE WHEN WE COME BACK.

(Martin Luther Kind Day)(PiP-MLK)

JY: "I HAVE A DREAM." IT'S ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS AND EASILY RECOGNIZED LINES FROM A MAJOR SPEECH. YET, MOST AMERICANS DON'T KNOW WHAT COMES AFTER THAT. TO KEEP THE DREAM ALIVE, AT LEAST ONE GROUP ON MAUI HAS DEDICATED ITSELF TO THE LEGACY LEFT BY THE SLAIN CIVIL RIGHTS LEADER. HE ATTENDED MONDAY'S MAUI RALLY AND FILES THIS REPORT.

(Take MLK pkg) A BEAUTIFUL DAY ON MAUI - A MONDAY HOLIDAY THAT SEEMS A MILLION MILES AWAY AND A THOUSAND YEARS AFTER A HISTORY MAKING MARCH ON WASHINGTON IN AUGUST OF 1963 - THE DAY DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING DELIVERED HIS FAMOUS "I HAVE A DREAM" SPEECH..

Angela Smith, Pres African american Heritage Foundation of Maui

AS01: "It's a commemoration so you've got a little bit of all kinds of emotions. I say commemoration because we want to commemorate the march. The march was not a parade."

THE IMAGES ARE A LITTLE BLURRY BUT THE MEMORIES ARE CLEAR OF WHAT HAPPENED THAT DAY IN AUGUST OF 1963.

AS02: "He marched not knowing whether to expect police in riot gear...dogs...or be spit upon. And they dressed in their Sunday best. I mean, proud people standing up for what they believed in."

STILL SPORTING THE ARM BAND SHE WORE WHEN SHE TOOK PART ON THAT HISTORIC AUGUST AFTERNOON 45 YEARS AGO, MARION FRANCOIS RECALLS WHAT HAPPENED BEFORE THE MARCH EVEN BEGAN.

Marion Francois, Massachusetts marcher

MF01: "It was an overnight trip. When we left Boston everyone was clapping. We drove all night and when we got to the south people were yelling. I was scared. I never got over that."

ONCE THERE, SHE SAYS SHE REMOVED HER HIGH HEELS AND HAD TO WALK SEVERAL MILES. THEN THERE WAS THE SPEECH.

MF02: "I've never heard a speech - before or since - like that. It has to go down in history - like the Gettysburg Address. It moved you. It soared. It went to your soul."

FRANCOIS SAID HER MEMORIES ARE AS CLEAR AS IF IT WERE LAST WEEK. BUT IT HAS BEEN A LONG TIME. AND SHE SAYS IT'S TAKEN A LONG TIME.

MF03: "Little by little, it seemed to get better. I'm hoping the young people today, they seem to have it together."

MONDAY'S COMMEMORATION DREW YOUNG AND OLD. THERE WAS A MARCH DOWN KAAHUMANU AVENUE TO THIS RALLY AT HOALOHA PARK WHERE LUNCH WAS SERVED. EARLIER IN THE DAY, AYIN ADAMS AND ALULANI HILL HELPED WITH THE COMMEMORATION OF THE PEACE ROCK IN WAILUKU - AND THROUGHOUT THE DAY IN WAILUKU TOWN, THE AIR WAS FILLED WITH RHYTHM AND - MORE IMPORTANTLY, PERHAPS - THE AIR WAS FILLED WITH HARMONY.

MAYBE, JUST MAYBE, AFTER ALL THESE YEARS, IT'S NOT JUST A DREAM ANYMORE. REPORTING FROM WAILUKU FOR MAUITV NEWS, I'M JEFF KING.

(on-cam tag) MARTIN LUTHER KING JUNIOR WAS ACTUALLY BORN ON JANUARY 15TH, 1929. IN 1983, 15 YEARS AFTER KING'S DEATH, PRESIDENT RONALD REAGAN SIGNED THE BILL MARKING THE THIRD MONDAY OF JANUARY AS A HOLIDAY HONORING THE SLAIN CIVIL RIGHTS LEADER. IT WAS FIRST OBSERVED IN 1986.

(BIG CAT)(PiP-Big cat)

J: BELIEVE IT OR NOT, BUT IT'S BEEN ALMOST FIVE YEARS SINCE THE MYSTERY OF THE "BIG CAT" SIGHTINGS PLAUGUED UPCOUNTRY MAUI. IT WAS THE SUMMER OF 2003 WHEN LARGE CLAW MARKS, REPORTS OF DEEP, MENACING GROWLS AND FRANTIC DOG BARKS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT KEPT OLINDA RESIDENTS ON EDGE FOR WEEKS. AFTER A VETERAN BIG CAT EXPERT TURNED UP NOTHING, THE MYSTERY DISSOLVED.

(Take VO -ff-) WITH THESE IMAGES, HOWEVER, THE DEPARTMENT OF LAND AND NATURAL RESOURCES ARE INVESTIGATING THE REPORT OF A BIG CAT NEAR BIG BEACH. A VISITOR FROM FRUITVAL, BRITISH COLUMBIA - A SMALL COMMUNITY IN THE KOUTENAY MOUNTAINS OF EASTERN BRITISH COLUMBIA - TOOK THESE SHOTS SATURDAY AFTERNOON OF WHAT HE SAYS IS A MOUNTAIN LION, OR COUGAR, CERTAINLY MORE COMMON IN MAINLAND MOUNTAINS THAN HERE IN THE TROPICS. RON ALLIBONE PROVIDED THESE PHOTOS TO MAUI TV NEWS OF A VERY LARGE CAT STROLLING AND RESTING ON THE MAKAI SIDE OF PU'U OLAI, ABOVE ONELOA. HE ALSO GAVE THE PICTURES TO WILDLIFE EXPERTS AT THE DEPARTMENT OF LAND AND NATURAL RESOURCES AND TO THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE.

(ON-CAM) DLNR OFFICIALS TOLD MAUI TV NEWS THEY INTERVIEWED THE VISITOR THE DAY AFTER THE PICTURES WERE TAKEN, THEN VISITED THE HILLSIDE WHERE THE CAT WAS SEEN. THEY TOLD US THE GROUND WAS TOO HARD AND DRY TO CAPTURE ANY FOOTPRINTS, AND THEY FOUND NO OTHER EVIDENCE LEFT BEHIND BY THE BIG FELINE.

ALLIBONE SAYS HE'S SEEN ENOUGH MOUNTAIN LIONS TO KNOW THAT THAT'S WHAT HE SAW ON MAUI AS WELL. HE POINTED OUT THAT - IF, IN FACT, IT IS A COUGAR, BEING SEEN IN THE LIGHT OF DAY SO NEAR PEOPLE IS NOT A GOOD SIGN. IT MEANS THE CAT IS ILL, INJURED OR DISORIENTED. WE'LL LET YOU KNOW WHEN WE FIND OUT MORE.

(e-cycle)(pIp E-cYCLE)

JY: IT HAS QUICKLY BECOME ONE OF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL EVENTS OF IT'S KIND IN THE STATE. AND IT'S KEEPING AN ESTIAMTED 200 TONS OF ELECTRONIC JUNK OUT OF THE LANDFILL. THE MAUI E-CYCLING EVENT IS THIS WEEKEND.

(vo) IT'S NOT TOO LATE TO GET RID OF THAT OLD COMPUTER, TV, VCR OR EVEN THOSE OLD CELL PHONES - AND GET RID OF THEM THE RIGHT WAY. THE E-CYCLING EVENT WILL AGAIN BE HELD AT THE WAR MEMORIAL STADIUM PARKING LOT THIS WEEKEND.

(VO-FF-CG) THE FIRST DAY OF THE E-CYCLING EVENT IS OPEN TO BUSINESSES, SCHOOL AND ORGANIZATIONS - ONLY - TO DROP OFF ELECTRONIC GEAR. THE FOLLOWING DAY, THE EVENT IS OPEN TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC FROM NINE TO ONE. DURING THAT TIME YOU CAN DROP OFF OUTDATED GEAR, BROWSE AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SOME EXCEPTIONAL DEALS AND GIVEAWAYS.

(on-cam tag) THE COUNTY OF MAUI AND HABITAT FOR HUMANITY ARE CO-SPONSORS OF THE EVENT - WHICH SUGGESTS A 10-DOLLAR DONATION FOR EVERY COMPLETE COMPUTER SYSTEM DROPPED OFF. ORGANIZERS SAY THEY WILL ACCEPT VIRTUALLY ANYTHING HAS A CIRCUIT BOARD - WHICH IS ALMOST EVERYTHING ELECTRONIC - INCLUDING TELEVISIONS, VCRS, DVD PLAYERS, GAME SYSTEMS, AND EVEN CELL PHONES...BUT NOT KITCHEN APPLIANCES. IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS, OR WOULD LIKE TO VOLUNTEER FOR THE EVENT, CALL THE E-CYCLING HOTLINE AT 573-4018.

JK: IT'S GOT TO BE PRETTY TOUGH TO BE A MULTI-SPORT ATHLETE THIS TIME OF YEAR IN THE MAUI INTERSCOLASTIC LEAGUE. ALOHA EVERYONE AND WELCOME TO SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS. I'M JEFF KING. KALAPANA WILL BE BACK NEXT WEEK.

WHILE MOST MAINLAND HIGH ATHLETES ARE BUNDLING UP, WE DO IT DIFFERENTLY HERE IN THE TROPICS. M-I-L SWIMMING, DIVING AND PADDLING ALL STARTED UP THIS WEEK ON MAUI - AND IT LOOKS LIKE AN EXCITING YEAR. LET'S START IT OFF WITH SWIMMING. THE M-I-L INVITATIONAL WAS A TWO DAY AFFAIR. HERE ARE SOME OF THE HIGHLIGHTS FROM SATURDAY'S MEET IN KIHEI. WITH CELEBRITY ANNOUNCER DAIN KANE AT THE MIC. IT WAS A GREAT DAY TO BE A LUNA AS THE GILL SISTERS WENT TO TOWN. IN THE WAHINE BUTTERFLY HAILEY GILL EASILY WON HER HEAT. IN THE SECOND HEAT THAT'S DE ARMSTRONG LOOKING STRONG IN LANE ONE...BUT IT WAS FRESHMAN KORAL GILL IN LANE 4 THAT TOOK THIS ONE. NEXT UP THAT'S LUNA SENIOR STAR JACK POPE'S START IN 100 BUTTERFLY...ABOUT AN HOUR AFTER HE BROKE RANDALL TOM'S RECORD IN THE 200 FREESTYLE. POPE WON THIS HEAT BY A MILE...MORE THAN 8 SECONDS AHEAD OF KAMEHAMEHA'S KULA BATANGAN. THE LAHAINALUNA GILLS - OR LUNAS AS SOME KNOW THEM - SWEPT BOTH DAYS FOR THE GIRLS EVENTS. FOR THE BOYS, KING KEKAULIKE WON IT FRIDAY NIGHT, AND SEABURY HALL CAPTURED SATURDAY'S TOP TEAM SCORE.

EARLIER SATURDAY IT WAS THE DIVING COMPETITION THAT WAS AN ALMOST ALL-BALDWIN MEET, WITH FOUR OF THE FIVE DIVERS HAILING FROM BALDWIN - BUT IT WAS SHEYENNE MACHIDA FROM MAUI HIGH WHO TOOK HOME THE TOP HONORS FOR THE GIRLS. FOR THE BOYS IT WAS RYAN BREM WITH THE HIGH SCORE FOR HIS 10 DIVES. TALK ABOUT CONCENTRATION...DO YOU THINK ALEX BISKIS IS FOCUSED? HOW ABOUT CAITLAN CORRAMENG? YOU TRY JUMPING, TWISTING AND - OH YEAH - TRYING TO MAKE AS LITTLE A SPLASH AS POSSIBLE.AND EVEN THOUGH SHE FINISHED THIRD, CAITLAN QUALIFIED FOR THE STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS BECAUSE OF THE DEGREE OF DIFFICULTY FOR THE DIVES SHE COMPLETED.

(ON-CAM) HOE WA'A, OUTRIGGER CANOE PADDLING - THE HIGH SCHOOL STATE SPORT OF HAWAII, AND THIS YEAR LOOKS LIKE IT COULD BELONG TO ANYONE.

(vo) TO KALA POHAKU FOR THE FIRST M-I-L EVENT OF THE SEASON AS THE JUNIOR VARSITY SQUADS TAKE TO THE WATER. AND WHILE THEY WAIT THEIR TURN, THEY MAY BE VARSITY PADDLERS BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN THEY'RE TOO OLD TO PLAY IN THE SAND. THE ACTION HEATS UP QUICKLY IN THE JV BOYS AS KAMEHAMEHA BARELY EEKS OUT THIS WIN OVER SEABURY HALL. AND YEAH - THERE'S THE LOVE IN THE VICTORY TUNNEL. AS FAMILIES FOCUSED AND THE JUDGES ZOOMED IN, THE VARISTY GIRLS KICKED OFF THEIR SEASON WITH A POWERFUL START. IMMEDIATELY THE LADY BEARS SURGE AHEAD...AND THEY NEVER UN-SURGED - IF THAT'S A REAL WORD. THEY TOOK THE FIRST VARSITY WIN OF THE SEASON, THE LADY WARRIORS WERE CLOSE BEHIND. FOR THE VARSITY BOYS, BALDWIN ALMOST FALSE STARTS BUT IT'S A GREEN FLAG. IN THE TURN ATA A QUARTER-MILE KING KEKAULIKE IS FIRST AROUND THE FLAG AND IT'S ALMOST A PHOTO FINISH AS KING K WINS IT BY JUST OVER A SECOND OVER BALDWIN. KAMEHAMEHA MAUI CAME IN THIRD.

(ON-CAM) IN THE VARSITY MIXED...IT WAS KAMEHAMEHA MAUI TAKING THE TOP SPOT. SO - WITH THE FIRST MEET IN THE BOOKS, THE M-I-L VARSITY CROWN THIS YEAR COULD BE JUST ONE RACE AWAY FOR ANY OF THE SEVEN TEAMS COMPETING.

AND THAT'S A LOOK AT SPORTS FOR THIS WEEK. KALAPANA WILL BE BACK WITH YOU NEXT WEEK. MEANWHILE, IF YOUR TEAM HAS A SEASON - OR SPECIAL SPORTING EVENT COMING UP AND YOU'D LIKE SOME PUBLICITY, TELL US ABOUT IT. SEND YOUR NOTICES TO SPORTS AT MAUITVNEWS-DOT-COM. WE'LL DO OUR VERY BEST TO GET A FILM CREW OUT TO COVER YOUR GAME. FOR MAUI TV NEWS I'M JEFF KING. NOW HERE'S HOLLY CHUNG WITH COMING ATTRACTIONS.
