(intro-FF)

Open

J: ALOHA EVERYONE. AND THANK YOU FOR TUNING IN TO THIS WEEK'S EDITION OF MAUI TV NEWS. I'M JEFF KING.

JY: AND I'M JULIE Y. WHILE THE SENATE BILL GOT ALL THE HEADLINES, THE HOUSE VERSION OF A BILL TO RESTART THE SUPERFERRY SAILED THROUGH COMMITTEE.

(turn to cam)(PiP: Superferry)

EVEN THE GOVERNOR SHOWED UP MONDAY TO TESTIFY AT THE HOUSE HEARING ON THE DRAFT LEGISLATION THAT WOULD ALLOW THE ALAKAI TO RESUME STATEWIDE INTERISLAND FERRY SERVICE. MAUI TV NEWS REPORTER JEFF KING BRINGS US UP TO DATE.

(take SUPERFERRY package)

(Superferry Package Text: IN A WHIRLWIND OF EVENTS, THE HAWAII LEGISLATURE SWIFTLY MOVED THE REVISED VERSION OF ACT 343 INTO COMMITTEE AND OUT FOR THE GOVERNO'S SIGNATURE IN BARELY A WEEK.

THE FINAL TALLY: THE STATE SENATE APPROVED THE BILL 20 TO FIVE. THE HOUSE PASSED THE MEASURE BY A VOTE OF 39-11. THREE OF THOSE FIVE "NO" VOTES IN THE SENATE, WERE FROM THE THREE SENTAORS REPRESENTING MAUI COUNTY. AMONG THE HOUSE REPRESENTATIVES, ONLY REPRESENTATIVE MELE CARROL VOTED NO TO THE MEASURE. REPRESENTATIVES JOE SOUKI, BOB NAKASONE AND KYLE YAMASHITA VOTED YES.

MAUI REPRESENTATIVES ANGUS AND JOE BERTRAM VOTED YES, WITH RESERVATIONS. BERTRAM REMARKED THAT PEOPLE COULD VERY EASILY MISTRUST THE GOVERNMENT PROCESS WHEN LOOKING AT THE SUPERFERRY ISSUE FROM A DISTANCE. But, he said, people may be putting too much emphasis on an environmental review for the Superferry instead of looking at broader issues, such as sustainability.

AFTER ALL THIS ACTIVITY, HOWEVER. THE SAGA IS NOT OVER. WHILE SUPERFERRY CEO JOHN GARIBALDI PLANS VISITS TO MAUI AND KAUAI TO ADDRESS LOCAL CONCERNS OVER THE ENVIRONMENTAL THREATS THAT MAY EXIST, THE WHOLE THING LOOKS LIKE IT WILL WIND UP BACK HERE. EVEN THE NEW BILL FROM THE LEGISLATURE CAN'T TRUMP A PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION. MAUI SECOND CIRCUIT JUDGE JOSEPH CARDOZA'S RULING WILL HAVE TO BE SUCCESSFULLY APPEALED BY SUPERFERRY AND STATE ATTORNEYS BEFORE ALAKAI WILL TIE UP TO PIER 2-C AGAIN. REPORTING FROM KAHULUI FOR MAUI TV NEWS, I'M JEFF KING.

(Water Cutback) (PiP - Rain)

J: THE WATER SAVINGS ARE SUBSTANTIAL - BUT STILL NOT ENOUGH. THAT WAS THE MESSAGE FROM LAST WEEK'S MEETING OF THE BOARD OF WATER SUPPLY.

(take VO/FF/CG) WHILE OVERALL USE ACROSS MAUI COUNTY WAS DOWN BY NEARLY 200 THOUSAND GALLONS A DAY, THE BOARD VOTED TO RECOMMEND A MANDATORY CUTBACK IN WATER USE FOR CENTRAL AND SOUTH MAUI. WATER DEPARTMENT DIRECTOR SAYS THAT - WHILE SUCH AN ORDER MAKES SENSE, THERE ARE A LOT OF CONSIDERATIONS, LIKE THE IMPACT OF SUCH AN ORDER ON THE COMMUNITY.

JE01: "Also another thing we need to consider is - along with a 10 per cent mandatory cutback, probably we should do something with the issuance of meters because how do you get people to cut back 10 percent - a mandated 10 percent while we still continue to issue meters."

OF PARTICULAR INTEREST IS THE METHOD THE COUNTY USES TO DECIDE WHO GETS A WATER METER. RIGHT NOW IT'S FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED - IF THERE'S WATER - THAT'S A SYSTEM THAT HAS KEPT SOME FOLKS IN UPCOUNTRY MAUI WAITING FOR YEARS. IT'S DIFFERENT DOWN THE HILL.


JE02: "In Central and South, when they have all their improvements in, or they come in for a building permit, we have - all along - been issuing meters, and we continue to do so. But there's going to come to a point, sooner or later, when we're going to have to reconsider our current policy."

(on-cam) THE WAY THAT POLICY WORKS IS, IF A DEVELOPMENT IN CENTRAL AND SOUTH MAUI PROPERLY COMPLETES APPLICATIONS FOR PERMITS - AND MEETS PUBLIC WORKS GUIDELINES, THEY'RE PRETTY MUCH ASSURED OF GETTING A WATER METER. NOW THE BOARD OF WATER SUPPLY IS PAYING SPECIAL ATTENTION TO A PROPOSED BILL DRAFTER BY MAUI COUNCILMEMBER MICHELLE ANDERSON, REFERRED TO AS "SHOW ME THE WATER." UNDER THAT PROPOSAL, DEVELOPERS WOULD HAVE TO SUBMIT PROOF THAT ANY NEW DEVELOPMENT WOULD HAVE AMPLE WATER AVAILABLE BEFORE THE COUNTY WOULD ISSUE ALL THE NECESSARY PERMITS.


(Drug Court) (PiP-Drug Court Emblem)

JY: HO'OMAKA OLA HOU. REBUILDING LIVES. THAT'S THE MOTTO OF THE MAUI DRUG COURT. THE PROGRAM, IN ITS SEVENTH YEAR, IS LEAVING ITS MARK ON THE COMMUNITY - A POSITIVE MARK. THE MAN WHO INTRODUCED THE DRUG COURT SYSTEM TO HAWAII A DECADE AGO WAS ON MAUI FOR THE MOST RECENT DRUG COURT GRADUATION. MAUI TV NEWS REPORTER WAS ALSO THERE.

(take Drug Court Pkg)
(Drug Court Pkg-text": IT'S GRADUATION DAY IN COURTROOM NUMBER TWO AT THE MAUI COUNTY COURTHOUSE. WE CAN'T SHOW YOU THE FACES OF THE BEAMING GRADUATES - BUT THEY WERE BEAMING. A DOZEN MEN AND WOMEN HAVE SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED 15 MONTHS OF INTENSE TREATMENT AND REHABILITATION. IT WAS THE 20TH DRUG COURT GRADUATION ON MAUI SINCE THE PROGRAM BEGAN HERE IN 2000 UNDER THE GUIDANCE OF JUDGE SHACKLEY RAFETTO. ONE OF THE GUESTS AT THIS EVENT WAS LIEUTENT GOVERNOR DUKE AIONA, WHO - AS A SUPERIOR COURT JUDGE ON O'AHU, ESTABLISH DRUG COURT IN HAWAII IN 1996.

DA01: "To be honest with you, it was out of frustration.We kept seeing the same people. Probation wasn't working. It was insanity - doing the same thing over again. Then I read in one of the law journals about drug court and said, now this is a concept that could work in Hawaii."

DRUG COURT ON MAUI IS JUST OVER SEVEN YEARS OLD.

SR01: "We have admitted about 500 people into Drug Court on Maui since 2000. That means 500 people have received intensive treatment for drug addiction We're graduate 244 - not everybody makes it. Of those, the recidivism rate is 14 percent - we base that on convictions. That means that only 14 percent have reoffended. That's an amazing success."

DRUG COURT WORKS ON MAUI - BETTER THAN ANYWHERE IN THE STATE. AND IN WORKS IN HaWAII BETTER THAN ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD.

DA03: "I want you to know we're known throughout the world for our DC. That's because we've acculturated it to apply to the different cultures and ethnicities that we have throughout these islands."

NOT EVERYONE WHO GETS CAUGHT WITH DRUGS QUALIFIES FOR DRUG COURT.

SR02: "They have to be in the criminal justice system. That have to be non-violent - and we have a definition for that. But that's for a reason. Studies have shown that it's counter-productive to mix people who are very violent with people who are non-violent in the same treatment program. They really need their own treatment programs."

BEFORE DRUG COURT, THE METHAMPHETAMINE CRISIS RESULTED IN 100 PERCENT OF THE OFFENDERS GOING TO PRISON OR A MINIMUM OF FIVE YEARS. NOW, ON THE HEELS OF TRAGIC MISTAKES, OFFENDERS HAVE HOPE.

SR03: "They're grateful. Their families come back to them. Their children come back to them. It shows the power of human recovery."

THERE ARE 120 PEOPLE IN DRUG COURT NOW AND - THANKS TO THE SUCCESS ON MAUI, THERE ARE NINE PEOPLE IN DRUG COURT ON MOLOKAI. OFFENDERS FROM LANA'I ATTEND MAUI SESSIONS.

THE LG SAYS ANOTHER REASON DC WORKS IS THE PERSON BEHIND THE BENCH. IT TAKES MORE THAN WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE OF LAW.

DA04: "The success of DC is driven by the judge. Judge Rafetto is the kind of special person we need on the bench. Compassion. And I'm thankful for him and others like him here. It is special."

AND WHAT COULD BE MORE SPECIAL, THAN REBUILDING YOUR LIFE. REPORTING FROM WAILUKU FOR MAUI TV NEWS, I'M JEFF KING.

(oncamtag)

DESPITE THE FACT THAT MAUI'S POPULATION IS ONLY ABOUT ONE TENTH OF THAT ON O'AHU, THERE ARE MORE PARTICIPANTS IN DRUG COURT ON MAUI THAN IN ANY OTHER COUNTY IN THE STATE. NOT ONLY THAT, BUT MAUI'S MODEL PROGRAM ALSO BOASTS THE HIGHEST RATE OF ACCEPTANCE OF NEW DRUG COURT CLIENTS. THAT MEANS THAT PEOPLE WHO NEED HELP THE MOST ARE THE ONES WHO GET IT.

(Tease for B-Block)(2-shot)

JY: BELIEVE IT OR NOT - THE BATTLE FOR , AND AGAINST, THE PROPOSED HONUAULA HOUSING DEVELOPMENT - ALREADY RECESSED AND REOPENED FIVE TIMES IN THE LAST 10 DAYS, IS RECESSED AGAIN.

J: AND WE'LL INTRODUCE TO TWO MAUI FILM MAKERS WHO TREKKED INTO THE HIMALAYAS THROUGH MUD, SNOW AND RICE PADDIES, IN SEARCH OF THE MIDDLE PATH TO HAPPINESS. HIGHLIGHTS OF THEIR STUNNING DOCUMENTARY WHEN MAUI TV NEWS CONTINUES.

(Honuaula)(PiP-Honuaula)

J: AFTER TAKING A MONTH OFF TO ATTEND TO OTHER ZONING MATTERS, THE LAND USE COMMITTEE OF THE MAUI COUNTY COUNCIL REOPENED THE TOPIC OF THE HOTLY CONTESTED HONUA'ULA HOUSING DEVELOPMENT LAST WEEK. THE COMMITTEE FIRST STARTED ON OCTOBER 22ND, THEN RECESSED AND REOPENED THE TOPIC FIVE TIMES, INCLUDING THIS PAST MONDAY EVENING. THEY'RE GIVE IT ANOTHER TRY TOMORROW.

AFTER WEEKS OF TESTIMONY, AND A LIST OF NEARLY THREE DOZEN CONDITIONS, THE LATEST MAJOR DEVELOPMENTS IN THE ONGOING SAGA OF THIS PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT - INCLUDE THE FACT THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF WATER SUPPLY ANNOUNCED THAT THERE IS NOT ENOUGH WATER TO BUILD THE PROPOSED AFFORDABLE RENTAL UNIT COMPONENT OF THE HONUAULA PLAN. THEN, AT MONDAY'S MEETING, COUNCIL MEMBER MICHELE ANDERSON PROPOSED THAT PIILANI HIGHWAY BE EXTENDED THROUGH THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT, AND THAT A MAUKA ROAD BE IMPROVED AND OPENED THAT COULD SERVE AS AN EVACUATION ROUTE UPCOUNTRY FOR SOUTH MAUI RESIDENTS IN THE EVENT OF TSUNAMI OR SIMILAR DISASTER CONDITIONS.


(Bhutan)(PiP-Bhutan)

JY: IMAGINE A PLACE WHERE THE GROSS NATIONAL PRODUCT... IS HAPPINESS. THERE IS SUCH A PLACE IN A REMOTE AND BREATHTAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL PART OF THE WORLD. MAUI TV NEWS REPORTER JEFF KING INTRODUCES US TO THE MAUI FILM MAKERS WHO CAPTURED PROOF OF THE GROSS NATIONAL HAPPINESS IN A KINGDOM CALLED BHUTAN.

(Take Bhutan pkg)
(Bhutan Pkg text: MESMERIZING IMAGES...CAPTIVATING FACES...WORLDS-AWAY CULTURE, CAPTURED ON FILM BY MAUI DOCUMENTARY PRODUCERS. IT CULMINATES IN THIS: BHUTAN, TAKING THE MIDDLE PATH TO HAPPINESS, CREATED AND DIRECTED BY DR. TOM VENDETTI, VIDEOGRAPHER AND PRODUCER ROBERT STONE, AND PHOTOGRAPHER WRITER JOHN WERHEIM.

Tom Vendetti, PhD (Psychology) Co-Producer with Bob Stone and John Werheim (currently trekking in Bhutan, taking more pictures) Robert Stone, Co-producer, co-videographer, co-editor of "Bhutan: Taking the Middle Path to Happiness."

VENDETTI, A PSYCHOLOGIST, HAD A LOVE OF THE PLACE LONG BEFORE HE WENT THERE. HE HAD BEEN TO TIBET AND NEPAL IN THE 80S.

tv01: "Bhutan was - literally - that was viewed as Shangri-La. But back in the 70s and even into the 80s, they only allowed a limited number of tourists into the country."

EVEN NOW, THE BORDERS ARE CLOSELY HELD...AND IT'S EXPENSIVE.

tv02: "For example, a visa today it's 240 dollars a day to go into the country and they only allow about 6,000 people."

THE IDEA CAME WHEN VENDETTI MET PHOTOGRAPHER JOHN WERHEIM AT AN EXHIBIT OF PHOTOGRAPHS WEREHEIM DISPLAYED AFTER HIS VISIT TO BHUTAN. THEN VENDETTI GOT THE IDEA TO DOCUMENT THE NATION'S COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABLE ENERGY FROM NATURAL RESOURCES - HYDROELECTRIC POWER. WHILE HE LEARNED A GREAT DEAL ABOUT THEIR MAGNIFICANCE POWER PLANTS - WHICH ARE UNDERGROUND AND ELABORATELY DECORATED. HE LEARNED A LOT MORE.

tv03: "While researching that I came across this initiative for 'Gross National Happiness.' And being a psychologist, that just fascinated me."

SUDDENLY HE NOW HAD THE IDEA FOR A MOVIE WITH A MAIN PLOT AND A SUB PLOT AND HE BEGAN THE WORK. HE WENT TO AN OLD FRIEND - AND ONE OF THE PACIFIC'S MOST GIFTED CAMERAMEN, BOB STONE.

BS01: "Tom and I had worked together for several years. He shared his vision with we and asked that I go with him to do some filming. I had already missed going with him on some of his trips to Tibet and I didn't want to miss this, so I agreed to go."

STONE WAS HIRED FOR THE GIG - WHICH WOULD BE INTERESTING AND FUN TO TRAVEL TO A PART OF THE WORLD HE'D NEVER SEEN BEFORE.

BS02: "But once arriving there and seeing what these people were all about. That's when it became more fascinating for me."

THEY APPEALED TO THE GOVERNMENT OF BHUTAN FOR A PERMIT TO VISUALLY CAPTURE EXAMPLES OF THE GROSS NATIONAL HAPPINESS VENDETTI SPOKE ABOUT - AS WELL AS THE NATION'S HIGHL;Y PRIZED ELECTRICICTY GENERATION EXPERTISE. THUS THEY WERE SPARED THE 240 DOLLAR A DAY VISA FEE. THIS PAID, THESE TWO, ALONG WITH JOHN WERHEIM, BEGAN THEIR MISSION IN 2004.

VENDETTI AND STONE HAVE COLLABORATED ON DOCUMENTARIES BEFORE. THEIR PASSION ISN'T IN MAKING CINEMATIC BLOCKBUSTERS, BUT IN LEARNING...THEN TEACHING.

TV04: "They haven't been money makers. I'm really interested in telling stories that have an impact on people. And when I read about the idea of GNH, as a psychologist I was fascinated, and I hope it will have an impact based on what the Bhutanese are trying to say to the world."

BS03: "We've already had some results. We put up a short video on YouTube a couple of months ago and it's received 5 or 6,000 visits and the comments back from people that surprised us. One particular comment came from a person who said that - after seeing this video, they had to rethink their life."

FROM THEIR EXPEDITION, THEY CAPTURED NEARLT 80 HOURS OF FILM - THAT HAD TO BE VIEWED, REVIEWED, EDITED, ARRANMGED...THE SCRIPT WRITTEN AND EDITED, NARRATED...MUSIC WRITTEN AND RECORDED...AND ALMOST ALL OF THAT HAPPENED HERE ON MAUI. THE DUO HAS ACCESS TO ALL THAT MODERN TECHNOLOGY HAS TO OFFER - AND THAT'S HANDY BECAUSE THEY CAN TAKE THE GRANDEUR OF THIS AMAZING PLACE NEAR THE TOP OF THE WORLD , BLEND IT WITH THE FACES, AND CULTURE OF THE DISTINCT REGIONS OF BHUTAN - AND CONTRAST ALL OF THAT WITH THE PERILS OF MODERN DAY CIVILIZATION AND TECHNOLOGY THAT IS BRINGING MORE AND MORE WESTERN CULTURE INTO THE MIX. THE MOVIE EXPLORES THE GOOD AND BAD OF THAT AS WELL.

bs04: "They realize that the answer is not to say oh that's bad you can't view that - because they're going to watch it anyway. So what they do is teach people what is good and what is bad and help them prepare for it."

IT'S A MODERN DAY REAL-LIFE DRAMA ABOUT WATCHING AN ANCIENT WORLD GROW UP IN REAL TIME - SET IN A PLACE WHERE THE BACKDROP ALMOST OVERSHADOWS THE CHARACTERS. FASCINATING FROM BEGINNING TO END. "BHUTAN, TAKING THE MIDDLE PATH TO HAPPINESS" WILL MAKE IT'S WORLD PREMIERE THIS WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 7TH, AT THE MAUI ARTS AND CULTURAL CENTER. YOU CAN MEET VENDETTI AND STONE AFTER THE FILM. AND GIVE THEM YOUR THOUGHTS. JOHN WERHEIM, THE THIRD PRODUCER, IS IN BHUTAN NOW, TAKING A FEW MORE PICTURES FOR A BOOK BEING PUBLISH ON THE CULTURE OF THE REGION - AS CAPTURED THROUGH HIS LENS. TO VIEW THE TRALER FOR THE FILM, FOLLOW THE LINK FROM OUR WEBSITE. THEN AFTER THE FILM, THERE'S A STRONG CHANCE YOU WILL CONSIDER FOLLOWING THE MIDDLE PATH TO HAPPINESS. REPORTING FROM THE NORTH SHORE FOR MAUI TV NEWS, I'M JEFF KING.

(on-cam) BHUTAN: TAKING THE MIDDLE PATH TO HAPPINESS PREMIERES AS PART OF THE MAUI FILM FESTIVAL NEXT WEEK AT THE MAUI ARTS AND CULTURAL CENTER. HOLLY CHUNG HAS THE DETAILS IN COMING ATTRACTIONS A LITTLE LATER IN THIS WEEK'S EDITION OF MAUI TV NEWS.

TONIGHT'S THE NIGHT! ALOHA EVERYONE AND WELCOME TO SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS. I'M KALAPANA. LAST NIGHT MAY HAVE BEEN HALLOWEEN, BUT TONIGHT WILL BRING THE FIRST TREAT...OR TRICK… TO MAUI'S TWO TOP GIRLS VOLLEYBALL TEAMS.

UNDEFEATED SEABURY HALL TOOK THEIR DIVISION TWO M-I-L TITLE TO STATE AND EARNED THE NUMBER TWO SEED IN THE GIRLS STATE CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT THIS WEEK. TONIGHT THEY FACE A CONSOLATION BRACKET WINNER AT THE STATE D-TWO TOURNEY PLAYED THIS WEEK AT MCKINLEY HIGH SCHOOL ON OAHU. MEANWHILE, THE LADY WARRIORS OF KAMEHAMEHA MAUI, WHO CAPTURED THE M-I-L DIVISION ONE CHAMPIONSHIP WERE AWARDED THE NUMBER THREE SEED IN THE STATE DIVISION ONE TOURNAMENT. THEY ALSO PLAY TONIGHT. THEY'LL FACE THE CONSOLATION BRACKET WINNER FROM THE FIRST ROUND. THE D-ONE GIRLS STATE CHAMPIONSHIP IS BEING PLAYED AT THE HILO CIVIC CENTER.

WE'LL POST THE SCORES OF SEABURY HALL AND MOLOKAI FROM DIVISION TWO AND THE SCORES FRAM KAMEHAMEHA MAUI AND BALDWIN IN DIVISION ONE AS SOON AS THEY BECOME AVAILABLE. THE TOURNAMENT RUNS THROUGH THIS SATURDAY.

THERE ARE JUST THREE GAMES LEFT IN THE M-I-L FOOTBALL REGULAR SEASON. WHILE BALDWIN CLINCHED THE DIVISION ONE CROWN WITH THEIR OVERTIME WIN OVER LAHAINALUNA TWO WEEKS AGO, THE LUNAS ACHIEVED SATISFACTION BY WRAPPING UP THE DIVISION TWO TITLE WITH THEIR CONVINCING WIN OVER THE WARRIORS SATURDAY NIGHT. BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN THERE WASN'T EXCITING FOOTBALL ELSEWHERE! JOIN ME NOW AS WE VISIT THE BEWITCHING CONFINES OF WAR MEMORIAL STADIUM FOR FRIDAY NIGHT'S MATCHUP BETWEEN TWO VERY FUN TEAMS.

(vo) A LITTLE EARLY FOR HALLOWEEN, BUT THE FULL MOON GRACED THE SKIES OVER MAUI FRIDAY NIGHT. AND IT WAS MOST OF THE NA ALII DEFENSE THAT GREETED TROJAN KEITH FLORES ON THIS ATTEMPT UP THE MIDDLE EARLY IN THE GAME. KING K’S BALL NOW AND WATCH MIKEY DOUGLAS SLICE THROUGH THE TROJAN LINE AND IT LOOKS LIKE HE COULD GO THE DISTANCE UNTIL TROJANS ALL-PURPOSE STAR ARONNE SANTOS FINALLY DRAGS HIM DOWN AT THE EIGHT. TWO PLAYS LATER, NA ALII Q-B CORRY ROY'S SECOND EFFORT GETS HIM INTO THE END ZONE SO QUIETLY...THE REFEREES DON'T EVEN SIGNAL A TOUCHDOWN. BUT IT WAS.

KING KEKAULIKE GETS BACK IN THE END ZONE AGAIN QUICKLY WHEN MAKOA 'AIKALA SNATCHES THIS TROJAN PASS AND RUMBLES IN FOR SIX. NA ALII TRY A FAKE POINT-AFTER, ONLY TO BE SWAMPED BY A GOOD DEFENSIVE TROJAN STAND. NINETEEN-ZIP AT THE END OF THE FIRST QUARTER, BUT THE TROJAN FAITHFUL NEVER GAVE UP! EVEN THOUGH A DEEP KICKOFF AND TWO STRAIGHT PENALTIES PUT THE TROJANS AT THIRD AND ABOUT 80. THEIR FAITHFULNESS WAS REWARDED IN THE SECOND QUARTER WHEN ARONNE SANTOS - ALSO THE TROJANS QUARTERBACK - FOOLS NA ALII’S DEFENSE AND SCAMPERS FOR SIX YARDS. THEN THE HEAVY HOOF BEATS OF KING K'S DEVIN KINNEY FORCED SANTOS OUT OF THE POCKET AGAIN. THIS TIME IT'S GOOD ENOUGH FOR A FIRST DOWN.

AND THIS PLAY IS JUST PRETTY. SANTOS AIRS A BOMB AND TROJAN'S GARRETT GONSALVES IS THERE! TOUCHDOWN TROJANS - MUCH TO THE DELIGHT OF THEIR LOYAL FANS. BUT THEN THEY TRIED WHAT HAS TO BE THE STRANGEST ONSIDE KICK IN HISTORY. TROJAN'S KICKER THOMAS CORTEZ SEND THIS ONE ALMOST...SEVEN YARDS. A LITTLE GIGGLING, AND GREAT FIELD POSITION FOR NA ALII. CORRY ROY TOSSES THIS ONE LONG, INCOMPLETE - BUT THERE'S TROJAN ARONNE SANTOS AGAIN...THIS TIME SHAGGING THE BALL FOR THE REF.

TWO PLAYS LATER, HEY MIKE! IT'S DOUGLAS FOR SIX. NA ALII TRY THAT FAKE POINT-AFTER AGAIN, KAWIKA PURDY TO DANIEL MCKEAGUE...GOOD!

SANTOS AT QUARTERBACK AGAIN - LOOKING A LITTLE LIKE A SHORTSTOP. FIELDING THIS AND TOSSING TO GARRET GONSALVES FOR A NICE GAIN. ANOTHER SHORT-HOP SNAP AND SANTOS LAYS A PERFECT ONE INTO THE HANDS OF BILLY PACHECO...TOUCHDOWN TROJANS. THEY TACK ON THE EXTRA POINT, THEIR MASCOT TACKS ON 14 PUSHUPS AND WE HAVE A GAME! KING K CENTER CHRIS MANIBOG WATCHED THE TROJAN CENTER AND WASN'T GOING TO MAKE THAT MISTAKE...SO HE MADE ONE OF HIS OWN. ROY HAS TO THROW IT AWAY - BUT NA ALII GET IT ALL BACK THREE PLAYS LATER - CORRY ROY TO MAURY SAGANAWIT FOR THIRTY YARDS AND A TD. SCORE AT THE HALF, NA ALII 34, TROJANS 14. KING KEKAULIKE WENT ON TO WIN IT - BIG - WITH A FINAL OF 55 TO 14. SATURDAY NIGHT'S GAMES SAW THE LUNAS BLANK THE WARRIO5RS AND BALDWIN DID THE SAME TO THE SABERS.

THIS WEEK'S GAMES WRAP UP THE REGULAR SEASON WHEN NA ALII HOST THE BALDWIN BEARS ON FRIDAY NIGHT. SATURDAY NIGHT THE TROJANS HOST LAHAINALUNA AT WAR MEMORIAL WHILE MAUI HIGH FACES KAMEHAMEHA MAUI.
