Open (TWO SHOT)

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

HC: AND I'M HOLLY CHUNG, SITTING IN FOR JULIE Y. WITH ELECTION DAY DRAWING CLOSER, EMOTIONS ARE RUNNING HIGH AMONG THE CANDIDATES. AND ONE OF THOSE EMOTIONS IS ANGER.

(Turn to cam) WHILE IT MAY BE EASIER TO REFUTE WHAT A POLITICAL OPPONENT SAYS DURING A SPEECH - IT'S SOMETHING ELSE WHEN SHE'S SITTING 10 FEET AWAY. MAUI TV NEWS REPORTER JEFF KING ATTENDED A DEBATE THIS WEEK WHEN THE GLOVES CAME OFF!

(Take Debate Pkg) WEDNESDAY NIGHT WAS THE THIRD AND FINAL DEBATE BETWEEN PRESIDENTIAL HOPEFULS BARACK OBAMA AND JOHN MC CAIN. TUESDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY NIGHT, THERE WERE LIVELY DEBATES ON WHETHER OR NOT A CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION SHOULD BE CONVENED IN HAWAII. BUT IT WAS THE STANDING-ROOM-ONLY GARDEN ROOM AT KALAMA HEIGHTS IN KIHEI MONDAY MORNING THAT SAW THE MOST HEATED EXCHANGE OF THE ELECTION SEASON.

AS REPUBLICAN JAN SHIELDS - A PROPONENT FOR A SOUTH MAUI HOSPITAL, DETAILED A MEETING SHE HAD WITH INCUMBENT SENATOR ROZ BAKER LAST YEAR ON LEGISLATION TO SUPPORT THE PROPOSED MALULANI HOSPITAL, SHE ACCUSED THE SENATOR OF HAVING A CAVALIER ATTITUDE, SAYING,

JS01:"..and I've got witnesses, saying 'Oh Jan, people die..."

SENATOR BAKER'S EXPRESSION SAID IT ALL - AND AFTER SHIELDS' SUPPORTERS MADE THEMSELVES KNOW, BAKER SHE HAD THE CHANCE TO EXPRESS HER EMOTION IN WORDS.

RB01: "...because for Jan to accuse me of not caring about people, not working hard enough, not trying to do everything in my power to get impreovements on my island - in my community - is baloney."

FROM THERE THE DEBATE WAS MUCH SMOOTHER AS THE TWO CANDIDATES FOR THE 5TH DISTRICT SENATE SEAT MADE COMPELLING ARGUMENTS FOR THEIR CANDIDACY - AS DID GEORGE FONTAINE AND JOE BERTRAM - FACING OFF FOR THE SOUTH MAUI 11th DISTRICT SEAT IN THE STATE HOUSE. THE GOAL: A BUT OF EMOTION, A LOT OF INFORMATION AND A TOUCH OF CONFRONTATION HELP VOTERS MAKE INFORMED DECISIONS. REPORTING FROM KIHEI FOR MAUI TV NEWS, I'M JEFF KING.

(on-cam tag) MAUI TV NEWS WILL, ONCE AGAIN, JOIN WITH AKAKU: MAUI COMMUNITY TELEVISION TO BRING LIVE ELECTION RESULTS BEGINNING AS SOON AS THE POLLS CLOSE ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER FOURTH. FOR MORE DETAILS ON OUR COVERAGE, GO TO MAUI TV NEWS DOT COM AND FOLLOW THE LINK TO THIS WEEK'S STORIES.

(Mazie, MNHCC)(PiP-Mazie)

J: WITH JUST MORE THAN TWO AND A HALF WEEKS TO GO BEFORE THE GENERAL ELECTION, CANDIDATES ARE TAKING ADVANTAGE OF EVERY OPPORTUNITY THEY CAN TO BE THE ONES VOTERS REMEMBER COME ELECTION DAY.

(VO) TUESDAY NIGHT'S CANDIDATE FORUM AT LIHIKAI ELEMENTARY SAW AN ALMOST ONE-TO-ONE RATIO. THERE WERE MORE CANDIDATES THERE THAN THERE WERE PEOPLE TO HEAR WHAT THEY HAD TO SAY. THE EVENT WAS PUT ON BY THE NATIVE HAWAIIAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE.

Howard Kihune, President, MNHCC

HK01: "I'm a little disappointed. I thought there was more members gonna come out and support us. - including the public, too, we invited the public. So I was hoping a few more people might walk in in the next few minutes. So, we're still crossing our fingers."

BUT THE REALITY IS THAT ATTENDANCE AT CANDIDATE FORUMS HAS BEEN DWINDLING POSSIBLY BECAUSE MOST OF THE PEOPLE WHO ATTEND THEM HAVE HEARD WHAT THEY WENT TO HEAR. ONE CANDIDATE FOR REELECTION WAS ON MAUI FOR A BRIEF VISIT TUESDAY. CONGRESSWOMAN MAZIE HIRONO IS WIDELY EXPECTED TO WIN REELECTION, SO - INSTEAD, WE ASKED HER ABOUT A CURRENT ISSUE: HOW THE FEDERAL ECONOMIC BAILOUT WILL AFFECT US HERE IN HAWAII.

MH01: "There were some things added to the bill by the Senate that were really great. For example now our deposits are insured up to 250,000 dollars instead of 100,000 so people can be sure what they have in banks and Savings and Loans will be protected. In addition there's this tax, called the alternative minimum tax that - had we not put a stop to its application - some 90,000 families in Hawai'i would have been hit with this higher tax that they wouldn't even have known was coming down the pike. And, one of the thing as you know I've been working on is going green. I'm on my 'Green Tour," so I've been meeting with a lot of alternative energy users and researchers. So a huge part of the bill that we passed will extend the alternative energy incentives and tax credits that individuals and corporations can take advantage of. We in Hawai'i, being the most oil-dependent state in the Country, need to move toward energy self-sufficiency and these tax credits and incentives will help a lot."

(on-cam tag) IF YOU'RE AMONG THOSE WHO ARE SICK AND TIRED OF HEARING ABOUT THE ELECTIONS, YOU JUST MAY ALSO BE PART OF THE TREND OF PEOPLE WHO DON'T BOTHER TO VOTE. AND THERE ARE MORE OF YOU THAN EVER. IN HAWAII IN 1960, THE ELECTION THAT WAS WON BY JOHN F. KENNEDY, 93.1 PERCENT OF ALL VOTERS IN HAWAII TURNED OUT TO VOTE. THAT WAS THE HIGHEST EVER IN THE ALOHA STATE. THE LOWEST: THE 2006 GENERAL ELECTION WHEN ONLY 52.7 PERCENT OF HAWAII'S REGISTERED VOTERS CAST THEIR BALLOTS. IN MAUI COUNTY THAT NUMBER WAS EVEN SMALLER - BARELY 48 PERCENT VOTED IN THE 2006 GENERAL ELECTIONS.

TOSS TO B BLOCK

HC: UP NEXT ON MAUI TV NEWS, THERE WAS VOTING - BUT NO CAMPAIGNING. THE MAYOR HANDS OUT HER SMALL BUSINESS AWARDS FOR 2008.

J: AND WE'LL HAVE THE FINAL STATS ON THE 2008 CLICK IT OR TICKET CAMPAIGN, AS A RECORD NUMBER OF US ELECTED TO WEAR OUR SEATBELTS.

HC: AND THEY'RE TOO YOUNG TO VOTE. BUT THAT DIDN'T STOP THEM FROM - WELL - VOTING. WE'LL HAVE THE STORY FOR YOU WHEN MAUI TV NEWS CONTINUES.

B BLOCK

(small Biz Awards)(PiP-winner)

HC: CORE HAWAIIAN VALUES IN BUSINESS. THAT WAS THE THEME OF THE 2008 MAYOR'S SMALL BUSINESS AWARDS LAST FRIDAY NIGHT IN WAILEA. AND WHILE THE ECONOMY CONTINUES TO CHALLENGE US ALL IN THE MIDDLE OF THE PACIFIC, SMALL BUSINESSES HAVE FOUND WAYS TO SURVIVE - AND THRIVE - IN OUR TINY ISLAND PARADISE. MAUI TV NEWS REPORTER JEFF KING HAS THE STORY.

(Take Small Biz Awards Pkg) IN MAUI COUNTY, SMALL BUSINESS IS BIG BUSINESS. BUT IN THESE TOUGH TIMES, CELEBRATING SEEMS LIKE IT MIGHT BE THE LAST THING ON A BUSINESS OWNER'S MIND. NOT SO LAST FRIDAY NIGHT AT THE MARRIOTT WAILEA. THE ROOM SEEMED OVERSIZED - BUT FILLED QUICKLY. IN FACT, EVERYONE ASSOCIATED WITH THE MAYOR'S SMALL BUSINESS AWARDS WAS PLEASANTLY SURPRISED - INCLUDING THE MAYOR.

Charmaine Tavares, Mayor, Maui County

CT01:"This is way bigger than last year. Just in the number of nominees, as well as the attendance. It seems like it grows every year. We were a little bit doubting that we would have the same kind of response because it is hard times now and for people to come out like this - it's been remarkable."

Diedre Teagarden Economic Development Coordinator, Maui County

DT: "You know what? This is an amazing turnout. This is the best we've ever had. We have over 275 people tonight at the dinner but, as for nominations - we had nearly double what we've ever had in the past. I think it just shows the heart of the Maui community - our entrepreneurs, our small businesses are truly the backbone of our community and you can see that here tonight."

AND IT'S GOOD NEWS WHEN THE BANK THAT SPONSORS THE EVENT AGREES.

Alvin Imada, Sr VP/Regional Mgv, central pac Bank

AI01: "That's what keeps our economy going. I think people are out there making it happen on Maui so, the economy - in the news may be tough, and it is tough on the street. But I think small business always steps up to make things happen."

KGMB-9'S KIM GENNAULA AND GUY HAGI EMCEED THE EVENT - KEEPING THINGS LIVELY, AND THE EVENING'S KEYNOTE ADDRESS WAS DELIVERED BY CHANNEL NINE'S RESIDENT "EXPLAINER," HOWARD DICUS - WHO PUT THE NATION'S ECONOMIC TROUBLES INTO PERSPECTIVE - A LOCAL PERSPECTIVE

Howard Dicus, Business Reporter, KGMB-9

HD01: "Small businesses are probably better equipped to survive this than the big ones are. One of the things I've learned in covering Hawai'i business is that big companies do layoffs. Small companies grow. And sometimes they find ways to grow even in a crisis. I think that, wheh this is over there will be a lot of big companies that had to really downsize, but at the other end of the General Motors coin will be little businesses that survive just fine because they were always careful about spending their money and thinking about who their customers were and how they were going to serve them."

IN HIS TALK, DICUS PREDICTED THE RECOVERY HERE IN HAWAII FROM THE NATIONAL ECONOMIC TROUBLES MAY TAKE AS LONG AS 18 MONTHS, BUT HE DOESN'T THINK IT WILL GET AS BAD AS IT DID IN THE DIP AFTER THE TRAGEDY OF 9-11. AFTER HIS SPEECH, ALL OF THE EVENING'S 22 FINALISTS IN FIVE DIFFERENT CATEGORIES WERE RECOGNIZED AND THEN THE AWARDS WERE ANNOUNCED. TAKAMIYA MARKET WON CENTRAL PACIFIC BANK'S KINA'OLE AWARD.

LEONA NOMURA'S KUAU MART WON SBEST SMALL BUSINESS WITH 10 OR FEWER EMPLOYEES. MUNEKIYO AND NOMURA WON FOR BEST SMALL BUSINESS WITH 11 TO 50 EMPLOEES. YOUNG BUSINESS PERSON OF THE YEAR IS KALE BOVERMAN, OWNERS OF STELLA BLUE'S RESTAURANT IN KIHEI. HAL JOBE WAS NAMED NON-PROFIT ANGEL OF THE YEAR AND THE LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD WENT TO DAVID "BUDDY" NOBRIGA OF MAUI SODA AND ICE WORKS.

AFTERWARDS, COUNTY COUINCILMEMBER MICHELLE ANDERSON CONGRATULATED THE SMALL BUSINESSPERSON OF THE YEAR, WHO PLEDGED A DISCOUNT TO EVERYONE WHO SUPPORTED HIM.

KB01: "Come on in. All you have to do is mention the mayor. It's the "mayor's special."

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

(ON-CAM TAG) IN ADDITION TO AWARDS FOR BUSINESS ACHIEVEMENT FOR COMPANIES AND INDIVIDUAL EFFORTS, THE MAYOR ALSO PRESENTED A SURPRISE AWARD - A NEW EDITION TO THE 2008 EVENT. ALAKA'I PALEKA, THE "MORNING GODDESS" FROM KPOA RADIO RECEIVED THE MAYOR'S COMMUNITY SERVICE FOR HER DEVOTION TO CAUSES THAT AFFECT THE PEOPLE OF MAUI COUNTY.

(Seatbelt Use)(PiP-Seatbelt)

J: ALL THOSE PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENTS - AND ALL THOSE 92-DOLLAR TICKETS - ARE FINALLY MAKING THE POINT: WEAR YOUR SEATBELT. THE CLICK IT OR TICKET CAMPAIGN FOR 2008 SAW NEARLY 100 PERCENT COMPLIANCE ON TWO ISLANDS - INCLUDING MAUI. WHILE THE OVERALL NUMBER WAS SLIGHTLY BELOW LAST YEAR'S STATEWIDE RECORD, THERE WERE IMPRESSIVE GAINS ON MAUI.

(ff-cg-vo) KAUAI RECORDED THE HIGHEST SEATBELT USE TOTAL AT AN AMAZING 98.76 PERCENT. MAUI WAS ONLY A FEW CLICKS BEHIND AT AN EXTREMELY IMPRESSIVE 98. 42 PERCENT. NEXT WAS THE BIG ISLAND AT JUST OVER 97 PERCENT AND O'AHU RECORDED 96.22 PERCENT. THE MAUI TOTAL WAS A FULL THREE PERCENTAGE POINTS HIGHER THAN IT WAS AFTER THE 2007 CLICK IT OR TICKET CAMPAIGN.

(vo) THE CAMPAIGN WAS CONDUCTED AT 139 SITES, STATEWIDE BETWEEN MAY 12TH AND JUNE FIRST. AT THE BUSY INTERSECTION OF MAIN AND HIGH STREETS IN WAILUKU, THE KEEN EYE OF THE POLICE NABBED A STEADY BUT - THANKFULLY SMALL - STREAM OF UNBUCKLED PASSENGERS.

(ON-CAM) IN HAWAII, ALL BACKSEAT PASSENGERS UNDER THE AGE OF 18 AND ALL FRONT SEAT OCCUPANTS MUST WEAR A SEATBELT. VIOLATORS ARE SUBJECT TO A 92-DOLLAR FINE.

(KIDS VOTING)(PiP-KIDS Voting)

HC: FOR GROWNUPS, VOTING IS A RIGHT AND A PRIVILEGE - YET FEWER AND FEWER OF US ARE DOING IT. TO TRY TO REVERSE THAT TREND, A PROGRAM CALLED KIDS VOTING HAWAII IS TRYING TO INSTILL PUBLIC SPIRIT THAT WILL LAST THROUGH A LIFETIME OF VOTING. REPORTER CHIVO-CHING JOHNSON SHOWS US HOW IT'S WORKING HERE ON MAUI.

(Take kids voting pkg)

(ON-CAM TAG) IN ADDITION TO VOTING FOR REAL CANDIDATES, KIDS VOTING HAWAII ALSO INCLUDES BALLOT MEASURES OF INTEREST TO SCHOOL-AGE BOYS AND GIRLS TO HELP INCREASE THE INTEREST IN THE ELECTION PROCESS. AND, KIDS VOTING HAWAII IS PRIVATE. TEACHERS INVOLVED IN THE PROGRAMS RECEIVE ELECTRONIC NOTICE THAT THEIR STUDENTS HAVE, IN FACT, CAST THEIR BALLOTS. BUT THE TEACHES DO NOT GET TO SEE HOW EACH STUDENT VOTED. FOR MORE INFORMATION ON KIDS VOTING HAWAII, GO TO MAUITVNEWS-DOT-COM AND CLICK ON THE LINK TO THIS WEEK'S STORIES.

(Body and Soil)(PiP-Something Organic)

J: THE NAME OF THE EVENT IS CUTE: THE BODY AND SOIL CONFERENCE. BUT, THE PLAY ON WORDS IS REALLY WHERE THE PLAYING ENDS. THE REAL ISSUES ARE SERIOUS: SUSTAINABILITY AND FOOD SECURITY.

(take vo) LAST WEEKEND'S 8TH ANNUAL BODY AND SOIL CONFERENCE DREW A CROWD OF PEOPLE INTERESTED IN THE CONCEPTS OF LOCALLY VIABLE PRODUCTS AND THE METHODS OF KEEPING THEM ORGANIC, NUTRITIOUS AND DELICIOUS. AND - HOW TO GROW THEM WITHOUT WEARING OUT THE EARTH. SOIL CONSERVATION TECHNIQUES INCLUDING ALLEY CROPS, COVER CROPS, HEDGEROWS AND WINDBREAKS WERE JUST A FEW OF THE ANCIENT HAWAIIAN METHODS BECOMING POPULAR AS PEOPLE TAKE A MORE SERIOUS LOOK AT REDUCING DEPENDENCY ON OUTSIDE SOURCES FOR FOOD AND FUEL.

(ON-CAM) HOW SERIOUS IS THE TOPIC OF FOOD SECURITY AND SUSTAINABILITY? ONE OF THE KEYNOTE SPEAKERS WAS DR. PAUL HEPPERLY -WHO HOLDS A BACHELOR'S DEGREE IN PSYCHOLOGY, A MASTER'S DEGREE IN AGRONOMY AND A DOCTORATE IN PLANT PATHOLOGY. OTHER EXPERTS INCLUDE THOSE IN THE FIELDS OF THE FARM AS A FARMACY AND FOOD AS MEDICINE. TO LEARN MORE ABOUT SUSTAINABLE FARMING, AND TO READ MORE ABOUT THE CONFERENCE, GO TO MAUITVNEWS-DOT-COM AND FOLLOW THE LINK TO THIS WEEK'S STORIES.


(Toss to C Block)

HC: UP NEXT IN SPORTS, THERE ARE STILL TWO UNDEFEATED TEAMS IN M-I-L FOOTBALL THIS YEAR. BUT ONE OF THEM HAD A VERY CLOSE CALL FOR THE SECOND TIME IN THREE GAMES. KALAPANA HAS DETAILS AND HIGHLIGHTS UP NEXT IN SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS.

J: THEN NAJONA ICHIMARU WILL JOIN US WITH DETAILS ON FRYING PLAN FLINGING, WORLD PREMIERE MOVIES AND CREEPY STUFF AT THE IAO. IT'S ALL IN COMING ATTRACTIONS WHEN WE COME BACK.


(sports) (PiP-Sports)

K: IF YOU DON'T THINK IT'S TOUGH STAYING UNDEFEATED, JUST ASK THE BALDWIN BEARS.

ALOHA EVERYONE AND WELCOME TO SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS. I'M KALAPANA.

THE DIVISION ONE-LEADING BALDWIN BEARS ARE ENJOYING A STREAK OF 13 CONSECUTIVE M-I-L VARSITY FOOTBALL WINS. BUT THIS YEAR TWO OF THOSE WINS HAVE COME AFTER SOME VERY SCARY MOMENTS - AND TWO VERY CLOSE CALLS. JUST THREE WEEKS AGO THE BEARS BARELY SQUEAKED BY KING KEKAULIKE 25-22. AND THIS PAST SATURDAY NIGHT AGAINST KAMEHAMEHA MAUI, IT DIDN'T LIKE THE SQUEAK WAS GOING TO HAPPEN.

(VO) OUT TO WAR MEMORIAL STADIUM AND IT LOOKED THE KAMEHAMEHA WARRIORS DOUBLED IN SIZE. IN A WAY, THEY DID, BUT MORE ON THAT LATER.

FIRST QUARTER ACTION AND BALDWIN KICKING PHENOM CEEJAY SANTOS, WHO SET AN M-I-L RECORD EARLIER THIS YEAR HAS THIS ONE FROM 42 YARDS DROP JUST A FEW YARDS SHORT. WARRIORS TAKE OVER BUT WATCH BALDWIN'S NUMBER 85, JORDAN PUU-ROBINSON WHO STRONGLY FEELS THE WARRIORS SHOULD START FARTHER BACK. AND HE STOPS BY TO PASS THAT MESSAGE ALONG TO WARRIOR EVAN GARCES.

WARRIORS PUNT AND WHILE IT TAKES BALDWIN'S EXPLOSIVE KAINALU GARSO A MOMENT TO GET THE HANDLE - IT DOESN'T TAKE HIM LONG TO GET INTO THE END ZONE WITH IT. BUT WAIT...IT MIGHT HAVE LOOKED TOO EASY BECAUSE IT WAS. WATCH THE REPLAY AND YOU'LL SEE NOT JUST ONE BUT TWO ILLEGAL BLOCKS FROM BEHIND. AFTER A QUICK GAME OF BEAN BAG TOSS, AND THE SIGNAL, EVERYBODY HEADS "THAT WAY" AND THE BEARS START ON THEIR OWN 45. IT WAS THREE AND OUT FOR BALDWIN AND THE WARRIORS START ON THEIR 27.

ELI FERREIRA HANDS IT TO KELONI KAMALANI WHO CHARGES AHEAD FOR 11 BEFORE BALDWIN'S JOHN LOTULEILEI WRESTLES HIM DOWN. LOTULEILEI SEEMS TO LIKE THAT PLACE ON THE FIELD, SO HE PLANTS KAMEHAMEHA'S JORDAN CAMERA THERE.

LATER IN THE QUARTER AND THE BEARS HAVE THE BALL BACK BUT WHEN KAMEHAMEHA'S KAALAI MILLER CHASES BUTA WILHELM-IOANE OUT OF THE POCKET, THE BALDWIN Q-B FORCES THE THROW AND WARRIOR DANA KA'AUMANO PICKS IT OFF, BRINGING IT ALL THE WAY BACK TO THE BALDWIN EIGHT YARD LINE BEFORE AARON ROSS MAKES THE TOUCHDOWN-SAVING TACKLE. AND THE WARRIOR FANS WERE LIKING IT!

TWO PLAYS LATER FERERRA HANDS IT TO CAMERA WHO POWERS IN FOR THE TOUCHDOWN - AND THE WARRIOR FANS WERE LIKING IT EVEN MORE. MEANWHILE, ON THE BALDWIN SIDE...IT WAS QUIET.

BACK ON OFFENSE, WILHELM-IOANE LOOKS FOR HIS FAVORITE WIDE RECEIVER AND RO WILSON USES ALL OF HIS SIX-FEET AND TWO INCHES TO SNAG THIS ONE IN A CROWD FOR A NICE GAIN. TWO PLAYS LATER THE DRAW PLAY AS KAINALU GARSO GETS IT AGAIN AND THREADS HIS WAY THROUGH THE WARRIORS FOR THE SCORE. SANTOS' EXTRA POINT TRY LANDS IN WAIKAPU AND WE HAVE A TIE GAME AT THE END OF THE FIRST PERIOD.

DESPITE NUMEROUS REMINDERS THAT THE WARRIORS WERE - INDEED - FACING A LEGENDARY FOOTBALL PROGRAM, THE UPSTARTS FROM PUKALANI WASTED LITTLE TIME. HERE QUARTERBACK ELI FERRERIA LOBS A BOMB TO CAMERON YIP, WHO HIGH-STEPS IN FOR THE SCORE.

BACK ON OFFENSE, NO ONE SEEMED TO NOTICE WARRIOR KAALAI MILLER ROCKETING THROUGH THE LINE - EXCEPT FOR WILHELM-IOANE WHO GETS DUMPED FOR A BIG LOSS. AND WHILE THE GLIMMERING LIGHTS UP THE HILL SHONE ON THE LUNAS EASILY HANDLING NA ALII, THE BEARS FUTURE WASN'T LOOKING SO BRIGHT. NO GAIN ON THIS PLAY. EVEN THE BEARS' CHEERLEADERS LOOKED STUNNED. MEANWHILE THE WARRIORS SEEMED TO MOVE AT WILL AS FERREIRA HITS RYAN MOUNTCASTLE ON THE RUN FOR 20 YARDS AND A FIRST DOWN. AND SPEAKING OF ON THE RUN, KELONI KAMALANI EMERGES FROM THE CROWD AND IT'S A FOOTRACE TO THE GOAL - WHICH KAMALANI WINS. AGAIN KAMEHAMEHA SIDE..........AND THE BALDWIN SIDE.

THE SCORE WAS 19-7 AT THE HALF AND REMEMBER WHEN I SAID IT LOOKED LIKE KAMEHAMEHA HAD TWICE AS MANY ON THEIR SIDE? WELL, THEY DID. THE BAND FROM KAMEHAMEHA KAPALAMA CAMOUS ON O'AHU CAME TO MAUI TO MARCH AND PLAY IN THIS GAME IN AN IMPRESSIVE DISPLAY.

(on-cam) THE WARRIORS SEIZED ON THE MOMENTUM SCORING EARLY IN THE SECOND HALF BUT THE BEARS SNAPPED OUT OF HIBERNATION AND SCORE 20 UNANSWERED POINTS - INCLUDING AN EIGHT-YARD RUN BY KAINALU GARSO WITH LESS THAN A MINUTE TO GO, TO SNATCH THE VICTORY BY A FINAL SCORE OF 27 TO 26.

(FF-CG) UP THE HILL, LAHAINALUNA ROMPED OVER KING KEKAULIKE 44 TO 28. FRIDAY NIGHT'S GAME SAW THE TROJANS WIN THEIR FIRST ONE THIS YEAR WITH A 14 TO SEVEN VICTORY OVER MAUI HIGH.

(ON-CAM) CHANGING GEARS TOTALLY, IT WAS A THREE-PEAT FOR SHELL VA'A OF TAHITI AS THE MEN FROM THE SOUTH WON THEIR THIRD STRAIGHT MOLOKA'I HOE. AND THEY DID IT BY SETTING THEIR THIRD STRAIGHT RECORD WITH A FINISHING TIME OF FOUR HOURS, 38 MINUTES AND 35 SECONDS. VENUS VA'A FROM TAHITI WAS SECOND AND LANIKAI CAME IN THIRD. THE BEST MAUI FINISH WAS HAWAIIAN CANOE CLUB WITH THEIR EIGHTH PLACE FINISH IN THE 106-CANOE FIELD.

AND BEFORE WE GO, HOW ABOUT MAUI'S SHANE VICTORINO? THE PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES "FLYIN HAWAIIAN" HIT A TWO-RUN HOMER IN MONDAY NIGHT'S LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES GAME AGAINST THE DODGERS, FOLLOWING SMASHING THE PHILLIES'S FIRST-EVER POST-SEASON GRAND SLAM LAST FRIDAY. THAT WAS A BITTERSWEET MOMENT FOR VICTORINO, THOUGH, BECAUSE HE LEARNED, AFTER THE GAME, THAT HIS GRANDMOTHER HAD PASSED AWAY THAT MORNING. OUR HEARTS GO OUT TO ALL THE VICTORINOS ON THE LOSS OF THEIR BELOVED GRANDMA IRENE.

AND THAT'S A LOOK AT SPORTS FOR THIS WEEK. I'M KALAPANA. NOW HERE'S NAJONA ICHIMARU WITH COMING ATTRACTIONS.
