(turn to cam)(PiP: Superferry)

WHILE PROTESTERS ON KAUAI TOOK TO THE WATER LAST WEEKEND, A CIRCLE OF MAUI PROTESTERS MET IN THE LOBBY OUTSIDE THE MAUI COUNTY COURTHOUSE TO SHOW THEIR SOLIDARITY. MAUI TV NEWS WAS THERE AS WELL.

(take SUPERFERRY package)
(Superferry Package-txt: ON A SUNDAY AFTERNOON...DESPITE A STEADY RAIN AND A M AJOR NFL GAME ON TV, A GROUP OF ABOUT 50 PEOPLE GATHERED UNDER THE GLASS ROOF OF THE OUTDOOR LOBBY AT THE MAUI COUNTY COURTHOUSE TO PRAY, CHANT AND EXPRESS THEIR DISAPPOUINTMENT THAT THE STATE LEGISLATURE PASSED ACT 2 THAT WOULD ALLOW THE HAWAII SUPERFERRY TO SAIL.

Irene Bowie, Exec Dir., Maui Tomorrow

IB01: "///We are obviously very disappointed. The courts ruled in our favor. And we believe that the law is correct and that the Hawaii Supreme Court ruled correctly and that Judge Cardoza ruled correctly and that this kind of came out of left field. But we're determined to deal with it. It's part of this situation and this battle and we're committed to do whatever we can to make the best for our environment."

THE MOOD WAS SERENE UNTIL MAUI STATE REPRESENTATIVE JOE BERTRAM'S TURN CAME TO SPEAK. AFTER BEING SHOUTED DOWN BY SOME PROTESTERS, MAUI TOMORROW LEADERS APPEALED FOR PEACE. MAUI TV NEWS ASKED THE SOUTH MAUI REPRESENTATIVE WHY HE VOTED YES - WITH RESERVATIONS.

Joe Bertram III, State rep, Dist 11.(South Maui)

JB01: "I knew which way it was going to go though because they asked everyone to raise their hands - who was against the Superferry. And nobody raised their hands. they may be aagainst the way it was done, or the EIS, but nobody was against the Superferry. So I knew it was going to go through - somehow - bacsue that was the only thing on our plate. So I voted the way I did because I wanted to be sure to do whatever I could to get the best things in there to protect us, to protect our environment."

BERTRAM'S "RESERVATIONS" THAT QUALIFIED HIS YES VOTE INCLUDED ADDING POSITIONS FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF LAND AND NATURAL RESOURCES INSPECTORS AND CIVILIAN CONSERVATION CORPS FUNDING TO KEEP AN EYE ON ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS. HERE'S HIS LOGIC.

JB02: "I'm supporting this because I want to get the things that are going to make it work. I believe the EA and the EIS isn't enough. If we do the EA or the EIS we're going to do what they did here for a month - list all the problems. We know what theproblems are. I'm interested in the solutions. Why wait until an EIS is done to start working on the solutions. It took 10 years to get an invasive species shed at Kahului Airport and we still don't have all the funding. for the inspectors. So now we've got everyone looking at these issues through a lens so let's use this lens in the legislature to get all the funding now."

BOWIE WAS ALSO IN HONOLULU LAST WEEK, AS ONE OF THE INVITED CITIZENS ASKED TO EXPRESS THEIR INPUT ON POTENTIAL CONDITIONS THAT WOULD ALLOW ALAKAI TO SAIL WHILE AS ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW IS ACCOMPLISHED. SHE SAISD THE MEETING WAS CORDIAL, THE GOVERNOR SEEMED TO LISTEN...BUT THERE WERE NO COMMITMENTS MADE.

IB02: "If she can come up with some strong conditions then we'll consider our next moves. If we feel that her conditions don't address the serious issues then I think we'll want and see what Judge Cardoza does before considering our next move."

WHEN GOVERNOR LINGLE SIGNED THE LEGISLATION THE NEXT DAY, THE CONDITIONS WERE NOT STRONG ENOUGH TO SATISFY MAUI TOMORROW'S REQUIREMENTS, AND THEY LET JUDGE CARDOZA KNOW IT WEDNESDAY MORNING IN COURT. STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL MARK BENNET CAME TO MAUI TO ASK THE JUDGE TO SET ASIDE THE PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION HE ORDERED A MONTH AGO - BECAUSE THE NEW LAW MADE THAT RULING MOOT. JUDGE CARDOZA RULED, IN EFFECT, STAY TUNED. HE SAID HE'LL CONSIDER THEIR REQUEST NEXT WEDNESDAY MORNING. REPORTING FROM WAILUKU FOR MAUI TV NEWS, I'M JEFF KING

(e coli) (PiP - Pizza)

J: AN E-COLI WARNING HAS PROMPTED A MASSIVE RECALL OF FROZEN PIZZAS ACROSS THE U.S. HAWAII STATE PUBLIC HEALTH OFFICIALS SAY THERE HAVE BEEN REPORTS OF ILLNESS FROM THE BAD FOOD REPORTED AT ANY STATE-RUN HOSPITALS, THEY COULD NOT CONFIRM WHETHER OR NOT ANY OF THE TAINTED PRODUCT HAS MADE IT'S WAY TO GROCERY STORE SHELVES IN OUR STATE.

ERRING ON THE SIDE OF CAUTION, IN A RARE NATIONWIDE APPEAL, PUBLIC HEALTH OFFICIALS ARE URGING ANYONE WHO HAS PURCHASED TOTINO'S OR JENO'S BRAND FROZEN PIZZAS THAT CONTAIN PEPPERONI TO THROW THEM AWAY. A MULTI-STATE OUTBREAK OF E COLI INFECTIONS - PRIMARILY EAST OF THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS - HAS CAUSED THE WARNING. THE MANUFACTURER, GENERAL MILLS, SAYS 414-THOUSAND CASES OF PRODUCT ARE AFFECTED AND THEY RATE THE HEALTH RISK AS "HIGH."

(On-cam Tag) WHENEVER THE HAWAII STATE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH ISSUES SUCH WARNINGS, YOU'LL FIND THEM ON OUR WEBSITE. GO TO MAUI-TV-NEWS-DOT-COM AND FOLLOW THE LINK TO "BREAKING NEWS."

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

JY: COMING UP NEXT ON MAUI TV NEWS, LAW ENFORCEMENT IN HAWAII IS TURNING TO CABLE TELEVISION TO ASSIST IN THEIR SEARCH FOR MISSING PERSONS. AND IF YOU HAVE DIGITAL CABLE, YOU CAN HELP. WE'LL ALSO TAKE YOU TO MAUI POLICE HEADQUARTERS TO SEE WHAT THEY DO TO LOCATE MAUI'S MISSING KEIKI.

J: AND THE RAIN WAS MORE THAN WELCOME THIS WEEK ACROSS MAUI COUNTY. WE'LL LET YOU KNOW HOW MUCH OF A DENT IT PUT IN THE DROUGHT CONDITIONS WHEN WE COME BACK.

JY: AND A LITTLE LATER, WE'LL TAKE YOU TO ONELOA TO SEE JUST HOW BIG IT GOT EARLIER THIS WEEK WHEN A HIGH SURF WARNING WAS ISSUED FOR THE SOUTH SORES OF MAUI. THAT AND MORE WHEN MAUI TV NEWS CONTINUES.

(Missing Kids)(PiP-NOD Screen)

JY: ANY PARENT'S WORST NIGHTMARE IS IF THEIR CHILD WERE TO DISAPPEAR. THROUGH THE TRAGEDIES WE'VE ALL HEARD ABOUT, LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES HAVE VASTLY IMPROVED THEIR ABILITIES TO RESPOND QUICKLY AND EFFECTIVELY IN LOCATING MISSING PERSONS. THE LATEST TOOL IN THEIR KIT: TELEVISION. MAUI TV NEWS REPORTER JEFF KING HAS THE STORY.

(Take Missing Children Pkg)
(Missing Children Pkg text: REGULAR VIEWERS OF MAUI TV NEWS KNOW THAT OUR PROGRAM IS AIRED ACROSS THE STATE OF HAWAII ON OCEANIC CABLE TELEVISIONS DIGITAL CHANNEL 110 ON NEWS ON DEMAND. LAST MONTH, OCEANIC ADDED A NEW FEATURE ON THE NEWS ON DEMAND CHANNEL. A COUPLE OF CLICKS TO THE RIGHT AND YOU'LL FIND VIDEO POSTERS OF EACH MISSING CHILD CASE ACROSS THE STATE. UNTIL NOW THE ONLY WAY TO KNOW WHO IS MISSING IS TO VISIT THE POLICE DEPARTMENT TO VIEW THEIR WALL OF POSTERS. ON THE NEWS ON DEMAND CHANNEL THERE'S ONE MAUI GIRL LISTED - NOQUISI AMA BLOSSOM, WHO DISAPPEARED MORE THAN 12 YEARS AGO.

Lt. John Jakubczak, CID, Chief, Crimes Against Persons Unit

JJ01: "Since 2004 there have been 14 missing persons cases involving juveniles, of wheich there is only one outstanding right now. ...That case happened in January, 2004, and it involves Astara Evening Star who went missing near the Pauwela Lighthouse in Haiku. It is believed she fell off the cliff but her body has not been found so we cannot close it out."

ON THE WALL AT THE MAUI POLICE HEADQUARTERS THERE ARE SEVERAL MISSING PERSONS CASE POSTERS. WHILE THESE ARE ONGOING INVESTIGATIONS, LIEUTENANT JACOUB-ZAK SAYS A VERY DIFFERENT SET OF CIRCUMSTANCES COMES INTO PLAY BEFORE THEY CAN ACTIVATE THE AMBER ALERT SYSTEM.

JJ02: One of them is we have to have a good description of the juvenile. And a description of the person suspected of abducting them, plus a description of the vehicle, including whether or not the child is in immediate danger."

FORTUNATELY, ON MAUI, THERE HAS NEVER BEEN AN AMBER ALERT ACTIVATED. THE NEW TELEVISED SYSTEM IS BASED ON WHAT TAKES PLACE IF THE CHILD CANNOT IMMEDIATELY BE FOUND. NOWADAYS IN HAWAII, THE SYSTEM IS MORE OFTEN REFERRED TO AS THE MAILE ALERT SYSTEM. The NEWS ON DEMAND TELEVISION poster program is an addition to ways to alert the public of missing children. The system was named after 6-year-old Maile Gilbert of Kailua and 9-year-old Amber Hagerman of Texas. Both were kidnapped and murdered.

INVOLVING THE PUBLIC ADDS MILLIONS OF EYES AND EARS TO THE TASK OF LOCATING KEIKI GONE MISSING- INCLUDING THE HIGHLY-PUBLICIZED CASE OF PETER BOY KEMA FROM THE BIG ISLAND, WHO HASN'T BEEN SEEN SINCE SEPTEMBER 11, 1997.

THE FACES ARE THE IMAGES OF INNOCENCE...THE UNWILLING VICTIMS OF HORRIBLE CIRCUMSTANCES...BUT RATHER THAN SERVE AS A GRIM REMINDER OF THE PROBLEM, THESE TV POSTERS OFFER DESPARATE PARENTS A RAY OF HOPE THEY'VE NEVER HAD BEFORE. REPORTING FROM WAILUKU FOR MAUI TV NEWS, I'M JEFF KING.

(ON-cam tag) HOW IMPORTANT IS YOUR HELP? ACCORDING TO OFFICIALS, ONE IN EVERY SIX CHILDREN FEATURED IN THE NATIONAL CENTER FOR MISSING AND EXPLOITED CHILDREN POSTER PROGRAM IS RECOVERED AS A RESULT OF SOMEONE RECOGNIZING A PHOTO.


(Rain/water)(PiP-puddle)

J: MUCH NEEDED RAIN ACROSS MAUI COUNTY EARLIER THIS WEEK TESTED DRAINAGE DITCHES AND FLOODED INTERSECTIONS IN NORMALLY DRY KIHEI, BUT DID LITTLE TO ASSUAGE THE COUNTY'S THIRST.

(TAKE VO) THE RAIN GAUGE IN KIHEI COLLECTED JUST A QUARTER OF AN INCH BETWEEN SUNDAY AND MONDAY. LAHAINA RECEIVED NEARLY THREE-QUARTERS OF AN INCH. OHEO GULCH GOT JUST LESS THAN AN INCH AND PU'U KUKUI IN KAHALAWAI JUST MORE THAN AN INCH. THE REAL RAIN FELL ELSEWHERE ACROSS MAUI COUNTY. LANAI RECEIVED NEARLY ONE AND THREE QUARTERS OF AN INCH AT THE AIRPORT AND THE MOLOKAI AIRPORT WAS DOUSED WITH NEARLY FOUR INCHES OF RAIN IN A 24-HOUR SPAN.

(on-cam tag) THE FAST MOVING WEATHER SYSTEM PAUSED LONG ENOUGH OVER O'AHU TO DUMP 14 INCHES AT THE RAIN GAUGE AT THE MARINE BASE AT KANEOHE. FORECASTERS AT THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ARE ADVISING RESIDENTS - PARTICULARLY IN THE NORTHERN HALF OF THE STATE - THAT THIS COULD BE A WETTER THAN NORMAL WINTER. IT MAY ALSO BE A WHITER THAN NORMAL WINTER.

(take vo) WATCH THIS TIME LAPSE VIDEO OF THE SCENE ATOP MAUNA KEA AFTER THE SUN ROSE MONDAY. THE FIRST SNOWFALL OF THE SEASON CREATED A BEAUTIFUL SCENE AS HIGH CLOUDS STREAMED BY, THREATENING TO LEAVE EVEN MORE. THE SNOW BEGAN TO MELT LATER IN THE AFTERNOON SUN.

(Drought)(PiP-puddle)

JY: SINCE A MEETING LATE LAST MONTH WHEN THE MAUI COUNTY BOARD OF WATER SUPPLY RECOMMENDED THAT THE COUNTY COUNCIL ISSUE A MANDATORY 10 PER CENT CUTBACK IN WATER USE FOR USERS IN CENTRAL AND SOUTH MAUI, THE INTERMITTENT RAINS MAY HAVE GIVEN SOME RESIDENTS THE FALSE IMPRESSION THAT THE DROUGHT HAS EASED.

(tAKE vo-ff-cg) THE RESULT: WATER USE FOR CENTRAL AND SOUTH MAUI IS UP - MAYBE JUST A LITTLE - BUT STILL MORE THAN LAST WEEK AND THE WEEK BEFORE. UPCOUNTRY SHOWERS EASED CONSUMPTION THERE WHILE WATER USE CLIMBED ELSEWHERE ACROSS THE COUNTY BEFORE LAST WEEKEND'S RAINS.

(on-cam) THERE'S GOOD NEWS FOR WATER USERS IN CENTRAL AND SOUTH MAUI. SINCE THE WATER BOARD SET A GOAL OF A MAXIMUM OF 25 AND A HALF MILLION GALLONS A DAY IN LATE SEPTEMBER, USERS THERE HAVE STAYED BELOW THAT MAXIMUM THREE OUT OF FIVE WEEKS. THE NEXT STEP FOR THE BOARD OF WATER SUPPLY IS A LETTER TO RESTAURANTS ACROSS MAUI ASKING THEM TO SERVE WATER ONLY UPON REQUEST.

(Toss to C-BlocK)(2-Shot)

J: COMING UP NEXT IN SPORTS, IT'S BEEN AN AMAZING RIDE FOR THE LADIES OF SEABURY HALL AND NOT IN JUST ONE, BUT TWO SPORTS KALAPANA HAS SCORES AND DETAILS - PLUS HIGHLIGHTS OF THE LAST WEEKEND IN THE REGULAR SEASON FOR MIL FOOTBALL. IT'S ALL UP NEXT IN SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS.

JY: AND RIGHT AFTER THAT, HOLLY CHUNG HAS THE DETAILS ON A WIDE VARIETY OF LIVE THEATER PERFORMANCES FROM ACROSS MAUI IN COMING ATTRACTIONS WHEN MAUI TV NEWS CONTINUES.

(sports) (PiP-Sports)

K: IT TOOK THE TOP TEAM IN THE STATE TO STOP THEM...BUT WHAT A RIDE! ALOHA EVERYONE AND WELCOME TO SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS. I'M KALAPANA. IT WAS A MAGICAL YEAR FOR THE LADY SPARTANS OF SEABURY HALL IN NOT JUST ONE BUT TWO SPORTS. AND DID THEY TURN SOME HEADS!

FIRST, VOLLEYBALL. THE MAUI INTERSCHOLASTIC LEAGUE CHAMPS, WITH AN UNDEFEATED M-I-L SEASON, EARNED THE NUMBER TWO SEED AT THE STATE GIRLS VOLLEYBALL CHAMPIONSHIPS LAST WEEK, AND THEY HAD LITTLE TROUBLE PUTTING AWAY O'AHU'S CASTLE HIGH SCHOLL IN THE SECOND ROUND, THEN WORD OF LIFE ACADEMY IN THE SEMI-FINALS. BUT IT WAS THE EAGLES OF HAWAII BAPTIST ACADEMY WHO FINALLY SILENCED SEABURY HALL IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH, 25-17 AND 25-16. ALSO FROM DIVISION TWO, MOLOKA'I ADVANCED THROUGH THE FIRST AND SECOND ROUNDS, BUT LOST THE LAST TWO MATCHES TO TAKE FOURTH IN THE STATE TOURNAMENT.

IN DIVISION ONE, KAMEHAMEHA MAUI AND BALDWIN WERE ELIMINATED IN THE QUARTERFINAL ROUNDS.

I DID SAY TWO SPORTS. THE LADY SPARTANS ALSO DID THEMSELVES PROUD AT THE STATE CROSS-COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIPS LAST FRIDAY, TAKING SECOND PLACE AMONG 18 TEAMS IN THE EVENT, JUST EIGHT POINTS BEHIND FIRST PLACE PUNAHOU. AN OUTSTANDING INDIVIDUAL EFFORT WAS ALSO TURNED BY KING KEKAULIKE'S BAILEY MASSENBURG WHO CAME IN THIRD OUT OF NEARLY 200 RUNNERS. FOR THE BOYS IN THAT EVENT, KING KEKAULIKE'S REID HUNTER CAPTURED FOURTH IN THE 197-MAN FIELD TO HELP HIS TEAM CAPTURE AN OVERALL 12TH PLACE AT THE STATE CROSS COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIPS.

IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE THAT THE 2007 M-I-L FOOTBALL REGULAR SEASON IS OVER! THE BALDWIN BEARS WRAPPED UP THE DIVISION ONE TITLE THREE WEEKS AGO, AND LAHAINALUNA CLINCHED THE DIVISION TWO CROWN TWO WEEKS AGO...BUT THERE WERE BRAGGING RIGHTS TO BE PLAYED FOR FOR EVERYONE ELSE...AND THEN...THERE WAS HOMECOMING.

(v0) HOMECOMING FOR THE LUNAS AT WAR MEMORIAL STADIUM MEANS, YES, YOU CAN WEAR A SASH, A CROWN AND A PROM DRESS AND STILL GET CHILI-RICE AND A COKE. AND IT ALSO MEANS, KAILAS MCGHEE IS RIGHT AT HOME IN THE END ZONE. HERE'S THE FIRST OF A FEW TRIPS FOR BIG NUMBER 33 AGAINST THE TROJANS SATURDAY NIGHT.

A LOT OF HISTORY HERE...ALTHOUGH I DON'T THINK ANY OF THE ORIGINAL ALUMNI ATTENDED THE GAME...AND ISN'T THAT CROSS-COUNTRY STAR DILLON SOLDWISCH ALL DECKED OUT? MEANWHILE, IT DIDN'T TAKE LONG FOR NUMBER 33 TO GET BACK INTO THE END ZONE. KAILAS MCGHEE FOR ANOTHER SIX. IT'S LOOKING LIKE FAN APPRECIATION NIGHT WHEN LAHAINALUNA SUCCESSFULLY POUNCES ON AN ON-SIDES KICK. BUT JUST WHEN IT LOOKED LIKE THE TROJANS HAD ALREADY LEFT THE FIELD, TROJAN DEFENSIVE BACK JOSHUA TAM SING STEPS IN FRONT OF THIS JAKE MANNING PASS AND RETURNS IT TO THE LUNA'S 30 YARD LINE. NEXT PLAY IT'S ARONNE SANTOS TO RYAN RODRIGUES WHO BARRELS HIS WAY INTO THE END ZONE. TOUCHDOWN TROJANS.

THE EXTRA POINT IS GOOD, THE TROJAN CHEERLEADERS DROP FOR SEVEN...AND THE TROJANS PROMPTLY MAKE THE MISTAKE OF KICKING OFF TO LUNA ROCKET LAKE CASCO WHO MAKES SWISS CHEESE OF THE DEFENSE...ONE TROJAN TO BEAT. HE DOES. ALL OF A SUDDEN IT'S 21-7. MUCH TO THE DELIGHT OF THE LUNA FANS...INCLUDING THIS PROUD MOM AND DAD. THE NIGHT BELONGED TO THE LUNAS...AND THIS PLAY BELONGED TO JACOB MCCARTHY, WHO IS FINALLY DRAGGED DOWN BY MAKALEA MEDEIROS. NEXT PLAY: GUESS WHAT? A THIRD 33-MCGHEE TD.

COULD IT GET WORSE FOR THE TROJANS? WATCH THE KICKOFF...THE BALL NOT ONLY WOULD NOT GO OUT OF BOUNDS... IT WOULDN'T GO INTO THE END ZONE. TROJANS BALL ON THE ONE FOOT LINE. BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE. A FALSE START SETS THE TROJANS BACK...AS FAR AS YOU CAN GO AND STILL BE IN THE SAME STADIUM. CAN'T GET ANY WORSE? HOW ABOUT A BLOCKED PUNT...TOUCHDOWN LUNAS.

WHILE THE FANS RESORT TO CHEERLEADER TOSSING FOR ENTERTAINMENT, BLAISE SMITH TAKES A TURN AT QUARTERBACK, THEN TAKES A TURN UPFIELD THAT SENDS HIM ALL THE WAY. NINETY YARDS FOR A TOUCHDOWN...THE LUNAS WENT ON TO TRAP THE TROJANS FOR A SAFETY AS WELL AND BY THE HALF IT WAS 44-7. BUT BELIEVE IT OR NOT...THE ENTIRE SECOND HALF OF THIS ONE WAS SCORELESS, SO THERE'S YOUR FINAL SCORE AS WELL. HOMECOMING HALF TIME CEREMONIES WERE NEXT...BRINGS BACK MEMORIES, DOESN'T IT? I ALWAYS WANTED TO WEAR THE HAT!

(FF-VO-CG) LUNAS BLANK THE TROJANS WHILE UP THE HILL, KAMEHAMEHA MAUI ENDED THEIR SEASON WITH A WIN OVER MAUI HIGH, 31 TO NOTHING. FRIDAY NIGHT'S MATCHUP WAS ALSO A SHUTOUT AS THE BEARS BLEW OUT NA ALII 46-ZIP.

(FF-VO-CG) HERE ARE THE FINAL SEASON STANDINGS. IN DIVISION ONE, BALDWIN WENT UNDEFEATED THIS YEAR IN LEAGUE PLAY. KING KEKAULIKE’S FIRST YEAR IN THE BIGS WAS A RESPECTABLE ONE, AND MAUI HIGH ENDURED A FRUSTRATING SEASON. IN DIVISION TWO, LAHAINALUNA WAS ALMOST UNSTOPPABLE. KAMEHAMEHA MAUI HAD A WINNING SEASON, AND THE TROJANS WON A LEAGUE GAME FOR THE FIRST TIME IN FOUR YEARS.

(on-cam) NEXT UP, THE DIVISION ONE STATE QUARTERFINAL MATCHUP HERE ON MAUI FEATURES BALDWIN VERSUS FARRINGTON OR KAPOLEI. THAT GAME, SET FOR NOVEMBER 17TH AT WAR MEMORIAL STADIUM WILL BE PACKED! AND I KNOW WHO I'M ROOTING FOR (WINK).

AND THAT'S A LOOK AT SPORTS THIS WEEK. WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU. LET US KNOW - AT LEAST TWO WEEKS IN ADVANCE OF YOUR TEAM'S UPCOMING SPORTING EVENTS. SEND YOUR NOTICES TO "SPORTS-AT MAUITVNEWS-DOT-COM" AND WE'LL DO OUR VERY BEST TO GET A FILM CREW OUT TO COVER YOUR GAME. FOR MAUI TV NEWS, I'M KALAPANA.
