J: AFTER NEARLY A CENTURY OF SWEET SMELLING PRODUCTION, THE PINEAPPLE INDUSTRY ON MAUI IS FINISHED. AND - THE ILLICIT DRUG INDUSTRY SUFFERED A MAJOR SETBACK THIS WEEK AS WELL AS MAUI POLICE MAKE A MAJOR BUST.

THOSE ARE TWO OF OUR TOP STORIES THIS WEEK, PLUS QUICK ACTION BY MAUI FIREFIGHTERS ON SUNDAY KEPT A SMALL FIRE SMALL IN A VERY SCARY PLACE. WE'VE GOT THOSE STORIES, PLUS SPORTS AND DETAILS ON ANOTHER BUSY AND FUN WEEKEND ON THE WAY IN COMING ATTRACTIONS. IT'S ALL AHEAD THIS WEEK ON MAUI TV NEWS.

(intro-FF)

J: ALOHA EVERYONE, AND THANK YOU FOR JOINING US THIS WEEK ON MAUI TV NEWS. I'M JEFF KING. BY NOW YOU'D THINK WE'D BE RUNNING OUT OF NOTABLE THINGS THAT QUALIFY AS "THE END OF AN ERA." BUT THIS WEEK, IT'S A HUGE ONE.

(TURN TO CAM) IT WILL LIKELY STAY PART OF THE NAME, BUT FROM NOW ON, PINEAPPLE WILL NO LONGER BE PART OF THE BUSINESS OPERATIONS AT MAUI LAND AND PINEAPPLE.

(TAKE MLP PKG) HOW DO YOU SAY GOODBYE TO AN INDUSTRY THAT HAS EPITOMIZED THE MODERN PROGRESS OF LIFE ON MAUI. SWEET FRUIT...WITH AN EVER-PRESENT PRICKLY AND STIFF BARRIER TO GET TO IT. THAT'S BEEN THE CHALLENGE TO THE MAUI PINEAPPLE COMPANY AND TO PARENT COMPANY MAUI LAND AND PINEAPPLE FOR NEARLY A CENTURY.

TWO AND A HALF YEARS AGO, REALIZING THAT THEY COULD NO LONGER COMPETE WITH ASIA TO COST EFFECTIVELY CAN PINEAPPLE, THEY DID JUST THAT - AND CANNED THE CANNING OPERATION. THE FUTURE WOLD NOT ONLY BE EASIER TO HARVEST IN FRESH, HAND-INSPECTED AND PACKAGED FRUIT - BUT THERE WAS A CHANCE TO GARNER EVEN HIGHER PRICES.

BUT, AS HAS BEEN THE CASE FOR THE COMPANY OF LATE, THAT DIDN'T WORK OUT EITHER. MAUI LAND AND PINEAPPLE LAID OFF 120 WORKERS IN JULY OF 2007 WHEN THEY CLOSED THE60 YEAR-OLD CANNING OPERATION. THEN IN SUMMER OF 2008, ANOTHER 300 WORKERS WERE LAID OFF. STILL THE COMPANY STUCK WITH THE NOTION THAT PINEAPPLE SHOULD COME FROM HAWAII.

THEY WEEK, THEY HAD TO ACCEPT THE GLOBAL REALITY THAT SHOPPERS WILL BUY PINEAPPLE FROM ANYWHERE, SO ONE-HALF OF THE HEART AND SOLE OF MAUI'S AGRICULTURE GIANTS DECLARED ITSELF LEGALLY DEAD. MAUI LAND AND PINEAPPLE WOULD LET GO THE LAST OF THE PINEAPPLE WORKERS, ALONG WITH A GROUP OF ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF FROM THE COMPANY'S REFOCUSED RESORT EFFORT.

IN ALL, IT HASN'T BEEN A GOOD WEEK FOR THE COMPANY THAT, AT ONE TIME, EMPLOYED THE GREATEST NUMBER OF WORKERS ON MAUI - INCLUDING MAYOR CHARMAINE TAVARES, WHO - LIKE MANY - ENDURED THE RITE OF PASSAGE IN HER TEENS BY WORKING SUMMERS IN THE PINEFILEDS AT HALI'IMAILE.

THEN, AS OF WEDNESDAY - ANOTHER SHOCKER - AS THE COMPANY'S REGULAR FILINGS WITH THE SECURUTUES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION INCLUDED THE FACT THAT, WITHOUT A SUCCESSFUL INFUSION OF NEW CASH FROM INVESTORS, THEY WOULD LIKELY DEFAULT ON DUE NOTES AND MIGHT NEED TO CEASE BUSINESS OPERATIONS ALTOGETHER.

MAUI LAND AND PINEAPPLE HAS BEEN IN THE NEWS STEADILY SINCE LAST SPRING WHEN THEY LAID OFF 300 EMPLOYEES THE WEEK AFTER THE SHUTDOWN OF ALOHA AND A-T-A AIRLINES. NO WORD ON ANY COMPANY PLANS YET OF WHAT WILL BECOME OF MAUI'S SPRAWLING PINEAPPLE FIELDS IN WEST AND NORTH MAUI.

(COKE BUST) (PiP-MPD LOGO)

J: THERE'S ANOTHER INDUSTRY ON MAUI THAT'S TAKEN A MAJOR HIT - BUT NOT MANY SEEM TOO DISAPPOINTED ABOUT IT. MAUI POLICE THIS WEEK BUSTED A COCAINE SMUGGLING OPERATION AND INTERCEPTED MORE THAN A POUND AND A QUARTER OF THE DRUG.

(FF-CG-VO) A TIP LED POLICE TO INVESTIGATE A SERIES OF SHIPMENTS TO MAUI FROM CALIFORNIA. A WARRANT ALLOWED THEM TO SEARCH ONE PARCEL AND THEY DISCOVERED MORE THAN ONE AND A QUARTER POUNDS OF POWDERED COCAINE, ALONG WITH DRUG PARAPHERNALIA.

(ON-CAM) THEY ARRESTED A 40 YEAR-OLD LAHAINA MAN. WHEN THEY SEARCHED HIS CAR, THEY ALSO FOUND SEVEN GRAMS OF PROCESSED MARIJUANA AND JUST UNDER A GRAM OF HASHISH. HE WAS CHARGED WITH SEVEN OFFENSES - BUT WAS RELEASED PENDING FURTHER INVESTIGATION. THE VALUE OF THE SEIZED COCAINE IS ESTIMATED AT 54 THOUSAND DOLLARS.

(ma'alaea fire) (PiP-FIRE LOGO)

J: MEANWHILE ON SUNDAY, IT WAS MAUI'S OTHER TEAM OF THE FINEST IN BLUE THAT KEPT A SMALL FIRE MAUKA OF MA'ALAEA SMALL.

(FF-CG-VO) JUST BEFORE NOON A BRUSHFIRE WAS REPORTED NEAR MILE MARKER SIX - NOT FAR FROM WHERE ANOTHER RECENT FIRE DESTROYED TWO HOMES. BUT QUICK ACTION BY A CREW OF 20 FIREFIGHTERS AND BOTH THE AIR ONE AND AIR TWO HELICOPTERS KNOCK THE FIVE-ACRE BLAZE DOWN. THE FIRE ALSO DAMAGED FIBVER OPTIC CABLE BELONGING TO HAWAIIAN TELCOM.

(ON-CAM) BUT CREWS WORK FOR ABOUT FIVE HOURS TO RESTORE THAT SERVICE. THERE WERE NO INJURIES FROM THE FIRE AND STILL NO DETERMINATION OF THE CAUSE OF THE BLAZE.

(A-TOSS-B)

J: UP NEXT ON MAUI TV NEWS, THERE WERE TWO SILENT MARCHES IN HAWAII THIS WEEK - TO HONOR THE MEMORY OF A MAUI WOMAN KILLED BY HER HUSBAND. AND WE'LL ALSO HAVE DETAILS ABOUT TWO PLANS TO KEEP OPEN SPACE OPEN AND THRIVING. THOSE STORIES AND MORE WHEN MAUI TV NEWS CONTINUES.

(B BLOCK)

(SILENT MARCH)(PiP-SILENT MARCH)

J: ON TUESDAY THERE WERE TWO SILENT MARCHES IN HAWAI'I - ONE ON LANA'I AND ONE AT THE STATE CAPITOL IN HONOLULU. THEY WERE BOTH IN MEMORY OF KAROLYN ALLFORD, THE 58 YEAR-OLD FORMER KAPALUA LAND COMPANY WOMAN WHO WAS MURDERED BY HER HUSBAND IN MAKAWAO TWO WEEKS AGO. ACCORDING TO THE AUTOPSY, AFTER HE KILLED HER, RETIRED MAUI POLICE OFFICER BARRY ALFORD TURNED THE GUN ON HIMSELF - COMPLETING THE MURDER-SUICIDE.

THE PURPOSE OF BOTH MARCHES WAS TO LET VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE KNOW THEY ARE NOT ALONE. DOMESTIC VIOLENCE DOES NOT FALL ALONG ETHNIC, ECONOMIC OR AGE LINES, AND NOBODY IS IMMUNE. BUT THE PURPOSE OF THE MARCH WAS TO LET PEOPLE KNOW - PARTICULARLY WOMEN AND CHILDREN WHO MIGHT BE SUFFERING IN SILENCE - THAT THERE ARE ALTERNATIVES, OPTIONS AND ANSWERS. THE HONOLULU MARCH WAS COORDINATED BY THE HAWAII STATE COALITION AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. THE LANA'I MARCH WAS PUT TOGETHER BY WOMEN HELPING WOMEN.

IF THE SILENT ONE IS YOU, THERE ARE ANSWERS. ON OUR WEBSITE AT MAUITVNEWS-DOT-COM YOU'LL FIND COMMUNITY LINKS TO SEVERAL AGENCIES THAT CAN HELP - IMMEDIATELY. EQUALLY AS IMPORTANT IS IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE WHO IS A VICTIM OF DOMESTIC ABUSE. YOU CAN BE A LIFE-SAVER BY LEARNING WHAT THE OPTIONS ARE, AND MAKING SURE YOU'VE DONE ALL YOU CAN TO GET THE HELP TO THE ABUSE VICTIM YOU KNOW.

(REC-REN PLAN B)(PiP-BEAUTY SHOT)

J: FOR MORE THAN A YEAR THE HAWAI'I STATE DEPARTMENT OF LAND AND NATURAL RESOURCES CRISS-CROSSED THE STATE TO DRUM UP SUPPORT FOR A PLAN TO REVITALIZE ALL OF OUR STATE'S HARBORS, PARKS, FORESTS AND RECREATIONAL AREAS. THE SO-CALLED "RECREATIONAL RENAISSANCE" FAILED TO GET THE SUPPORT IN THE LEGISLATURE, HOWEVER, AND THE MEASURE DIED ON THE HOUSE FLOOR LAST YEAR.

SO, WITH THE BACKGROUND OF PROTECTING NATURAL RESOURCES, THE D-L-N-R IS BEING "RESOURCEFUL" ON THEIR OWN AND HAS COME UP WITH THE RECREATIONAL RENAISSANCE, PLAN B."

(VO) WEDNESDAY NIGHT A PUBLIC MEETING AT MA'ALAEA OFFERED THE CHANCE FOR CITIZENS TO GIVE THEIR TWO CENTS' WORTH ON HOW THE STATE CAN RESTORE AND PRESERVE TRAILS, SMALL BOAT HARBORS AND OTHER FACILITIES. IT WAS THE THIRD MEETING THIS WEEK - AFTER SESSIONS ON MOLOKA'I AND LANA'I.

(ON-CAM) IF YOU COULDN'T MAKE ONE OF THE MEETINGS, YOU CAN STILL SEE THE DLNR'S PROPOSAL AND YOU CAN STILL BE HEARD. TO SEE A COPY OF THE DRAFT PLAN, AND TO MAKE YOUR COMMENTS, GO TO MAUITVNEWS-DOT-COM AND FOLLOW THE LINK TO THIS WEEK'S STORIES.

(STAR-TIMES)(PiP-tIMESlOGO)

J: IT'S BEEN A CATCHY JINGLE FOR YEARS (star jingle) BUT NOW IT'S TIME TO GET A NEW ONE STUCK IN YOUR HEAD (Times jingle). AFTER 30 YEARS ON MAUI, STAR MARKET IS GONE AND TIMES SUPERMARKET TAKES OVER.

(VO) ON TUESDAY THE LAST REMNANTS OF STAR'S RUN IN KIHEI WERE OBLITERATED AS THE NEW TIMES LOGO WAS APPLIED EVERYWHERE, SHOPPING CARTS WERE DISTRIBUTED - AND EMPLOYEES GOT THEIR NEW UNIFORMS. KIHEI WAS ONE OF SEVEN STAR MARKET LOCATIONS ACROSS THE STATE TO BE TAKEN OVER BY TIMES.

(ON-CAM) MOST OF THE STAR EMPLOYEES, WE'RE TOLD, ARE KEEPING THEIR JOBS BUT THERE WAS ONE MAJOR CASUALTY. AN AGREEMENT WITH CVS AND TIMES SUPERMARKET MEANT THE FORMER STAR MARKET PHARMACY WOULD CLOSE PERMANENTLY BECAUSE OF THE THREAT OF LOSS OF BUSINESS TO NEARBY LONGS DRUGS. WITH THE TAKEOVER OF LONGS BY CVS PHARMACIES, THERE ARE TWO LONG'S PHARMACIES NOW WITHIN TWO BLOCKS OF THE NEW KIHEI TIMES LOCATION, SO, NO IN-STORE PHARMACY AT TIMES.

(ROTARY-DICTIONARIES)(PiP-DICTIONARIES)

J: FURLOUGH FRIDAYS HAVE BEEN GETTING ALL THE EDUCATION HEADLINES LATELY - BUT IT'S IMPORTANT THAT YOU KNOW THAT KIDS ARE NOT BEING NEGLECTED - AND HERE ARE TWO VERY GOOD EXAMPLES.

(FF-CG-VO) OVER THE PAST TWO MONTHS, THE NINE ROTARY CLUBS OF MAUI HAVE PERSONALLY DELIVERED DICTIONARIES TO MORE THAN 26-HUNDRED THIRD GRADE STUDENTS AT 30 PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SCHOOLS IN MAUI COUNTY. THE GOAL OF THE ROTARY DICTIONARY PROJECT IS TO ASSIST STUDENTS IN BECOME GOOD WRITERS AND READERS - AND BETTER THINKERS BY EACH STUDENT OWNING THEIR OWN DICTIONARY.

(ON-CAM) THE NINE MAUI CLUBS ARE PART OF ROTARY INTERNATIONAL - A NETWORK OF MORE THAN 1-POINT-TWO MILLION PROFESSIONAL MEN AND WOMEN IN SERVICE TO MORE THAN 200 COUNTRIES WORLDWIDE. THE OTHER LITERACY BOOST TO HAWAI'I CAME IN THE FORM OF WINNING A CONTEST.

(ff-cg-vo) AN AGGRESSIVE EMAIL CAMPAIGN GOT ENOUGH PEOPLE TO VOTE FOR THE STATE OF HAWAI'I - AND WE WON! AS A RESULT, THE STATE IS RECEIVE 50,000 BOOKS THROUGH NATIONWIDE "FIRST BOOK" PROGRAM. THE BOOKS ARE GOING TO BE AVAILABLE AT FACILITIES THAT ARE REGISTERED WITH THE FIRST BOOK ORGANIZATION.

(ON-CAM) IF YOU'D LIKE TO FIND OUT WHERE THOSE ARE, OR HOW TO REGISTER WITH FIRST BOOK, GO TO MAUI TV NEWS DOT COM AND FOLLOW THE LINK TO THIS WEEK'S STORIES.

(B-TOSS-C)

J: UP NEXT IN SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS, AS THE FOOTBALL SEASON WINDS DOWN IN THE MAUI INTERSCHOLASTIC LEAGUE THIS WEEK, THE CHAMPIONSHIPS HAVE BEEN DECIDED - AND SO HAVE STATE SEEDINGS.

J: TAKING A QUICK LOOK AT SPORTS, WHILE THE END RESULT CAME OUT THE SAME AS IN MOST YEARS - THE PATH TO THE MAUI INTERSCHOLASTIC LEAGUE FOOTBALL FINAL STANDINGS WAS ANYTHING BUT ORDINARY.
