J: FOR EVERY ONE OF THESE REEF INVADERS TAKEN OUT OF THE OCEAN, 146 INDIGENOUS FISH LIVE ON. AND ANOTHER MILESTONE IS REACHED IN THE QUEST TO RELIEVE TRAFFIC HEADACHES IN WEST MAUI

THOSE ARE TWO OF OUR TOP STORIES THIS WEEK, PLUS THE LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR CAME BACK TO MAUI THIS WEEK - IN THE NAME OF STORY TIME. WE'VE GOT THOSE STORIES – PLUS THE ULTIMATE VISUALIZATION OF PRACTICING ALOHA. IN SPORTS, THE M-I-L FOOTBALL SEASON COMES TO A REMARKABLE FINISH AND THERE'S ANOTHER REMARKABLY OVERSATURATED WEEKEND AHEAD OF THINGS TO SEE AND DO. DETAILS IN COMING ATTRACTIONS THIS WEEK ON MAUI TV NEWS.

(intro-FF)

J: ALOHA EVERYONE, AND THANK YOU FOR TUNING IN THIS WEEK TO MAUI TV NEWS. I'M JEFF KING. ONE OF OUR MOST PRECIOUS - YET MOST FRAGILE - RESOURCES ARE THE REEF ECOSYSTEMS THAT SURROUND OUR ISLANDS.

(TURN TO CAM) SOME 50 YEARS AFTER A BAD DECISION BROUGHT AN INVASIVE GROUP OF FISH TO HAWAI'I, SMART AND ADVENTUROUS DIVERS ARE HELPING CLEAN UP A MESS AND HELP MAKE THINGS THE WAY THEY USED TO BE.

(TAKE ROI PKG) SUNDAY MORNING IN LAHAINA - A PLACE WHERE'S IT'S NOT UNUSUAL TO SEE A COUPLE OF DIVERS WALKING DOWN FRONT STREET. BUT TODAY THEY'RE WALKING ALL THE WAY FROM MALA WHARF TO THE HARD ROCK CAFE TO DELIVER DEAD FISH - AND THEY COULDN'T BE HAPPIER ABOUT IT.

Skippy Hau, DAR, DLNR

SH01: "Most of the fish being caught are Roi, or what they call blue spotted groupers. Those were introduced along with the ta'ape, the blueline snapper and the to'au, also a snapper. Thosere introduced in the 1950s back when we used to be called fish and game and they had introduced those three species. So the Roi, right now for this tournament, is being targeted."

TOURNAMENT ORGANIZERS MAKE NO BONES ABOUT THE FACT THAT THEY WANT THESE FISH GONE FROM THE REEFS AROUND MAUI. IN FACT, THEIT PROMOTIONAL T-SHIRTS MAKE IT REAL CLAER,: KILL ONE, SAVE 146 - AND THAT'S NOT JUST A METAPHOR.

Kuhe Paracuellas, Maui County Environmental Coordinator

KP01: "It's statistical, actually, each average size roi eats about 146 reef fish per year. So for every roi that the divers kill, we are potentially saving 146 reef fish that won't be consumed by roi this year."

THE BLUE SPOTTED GROUPER IS NOT A BIG FISH - AND EVEN A FULL STRINGER DOESN'T TOP 10 POUNDS, BUT ACROSS THESESE ROI ROUNDUPS ON MAUI IN 2009, THEY'VE COLLECTED NEARLY 700 FISH. WHILE THAT MAY NOT SEEM LIKE A LOT, IT IS WHEN YOU DO THE MATH:

KP02: "But if you times that by 146, I think they have saved potentially oover 100,000 reef fish from being eaten by roi this year."

MUCH LIKE OTHER DIVING TOURNAMENTS, THE GOAL IS TO GET AS MANY AND/OR THE BIGGEST OF CERTAIN KINDS OF FISH. BUT THIS EVENT ALSO HAS A MUCH HIGHER PURPOSE.

SH02: "I think we we have in creating these tournaments is to have an awareness among divers as well as the fishing public so they'll understand that the roi will eat other fishes. Then, by removing the roi, then you have a lot more of the other reef fishes that will be left alone."

IN ADDITION TO BEING A VORACIOUS PREDATOR, ROI ARE ALSO KNOWN AS CARRIERS OF SCIGUTERA, THE REEF FISH SICKNESS THAT CAN BE DEADLY TO HUMANS.

ON THIS DAY, TEAMS COLLECTED A TOTAL OF 264 FISH - 250 OF WHICH WERE ROI, PLUS A HANDFUL OF TO'AU AND TA'APE. AND THE MATH POINTS OUT THAT 38,544 INDIGENOUS REEF FISH WILL LIVE TO SWIM ANOTHER DAY.

(ON-CAM TAG) THOSE INVASIVE FISH DO COME IN ALL SIZES. THE RANGE OF ROI CAPTURED DURING SUNDAY'S TOURNAMENT RANGED FROM THE BIGGEST AT A LITTLE MORE THAN THREE AND A HALF POUNDS TO THE SMALLEST AT BARELY MORE THAN A QUARTER OF AN OUNCE.

(GROUNDBREAKING)(PiP-groundbreaking)

J: YOU'VE SEEN THE CREWS WORKING ALREADY - BUT LAST FRIDAY, THE OFFICIAL GROUND BREAKING ADDED CREDIBILITY TO AN ADVANCEMENT IN THE REAL PROJECT OF EASING TRAFFIC IN WEST MAUI.

(FF-CG-VO) LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR JAMES R. - DUKE AIONA JOINED MAYOR CHARMAINE TAVARES, STATE REPRESENTATIVE ANGUS MCKELVEY AND STATE SENATOR ROZ BAKER TO BREAK GROUND NEAR THE LAHAINA AQUATIC CENTER. IT WAS THE SYMBOLIC CENTER OF A ONE-MILE SECTION OF HONOAPI'ILANI HIGHWAY THAT WILL BE WIDENED FROM TWO TO FOUR LANES. IN ADDITION, A LANDSCAPED MEDIAN WILL SEPARATE DIRECTIONS OF TRAFFIC AND THERE WILL BE BIKE LANES ON EACH SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY.

(ON-CAM) CLOSE TO 26,000 CARS BUSES AND TRUCKS TRAVEL THAT ROUTE EVERY DAY AND THAT NUMBER IS EXPECTED TO DO NOTHING BUT INCREASE. CONSTRUCTION BEGAN JUST BEFORE HALLOWEEN AND IS EXPECTED TO BE COMPLETE BY THE END OF NEXT YEAR. THE 18 AND A HALF MILLION DOLLARS PROJECT IS BEING FUNDED PRIMARILY BY FEDERAL HIGHWAY FUNDS AND WORK IS BEING COMPLETED BY GOODFELLOW BROTHERS.

(READ ALOUD AMERICA)(PiP - KIDS READING)

J: LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR AIONA CAME BACK TO MAUI TUESDAY NIGHT TO HEAD BACK TO THE CLASSROOM.

(VO) THE LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR HAS BEEN A MAJOR SUPPORTER OF THE 'READ ALOUD AMERICA' PROGRAM FOR SEVERAL YEARS. HE VISITED SOME 600 STUDENTS, PARENTS AND TEACHERS AT WAILUKU ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TUESDAY NIGHT. AFTER OPENING REMARKS, A FEW CONTESTS AND SOME WELL-RECEIVED JOKES, THE STATE'S SECOND IN COMMAND CHARGED PARENTS WITH THE RESPONSIBILITY OF INSTILLING RESPONSIBLE BEHAVIOR AND RESPECT IN THEIR CHILDREN - AND THEN JOINED THE MOMS AND DADS IN READING A CHAPTER ALOUD.

(ON-CAM) THE READ ALOUD PROGRAM BEGAN IN 1999 AND SINCE THEN MORE THAN 165,000 STUDENTS AND PARENTS HAVE ATTENDED MORE THAN 80 SEPARATE PROGRAMS ACROSS THE STATE. THE PROGRAM IS A FREE COMMUNITY EVENT THAT BRINGS TOGETHER FAMILIES, BUSINESSES, COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS AND INDIVIDUALS - ALL FOR THE SAME PURPOSE - TO INSPIRE YOUNG MINDS THROUGH READING.

(A-TOSS-B)

J: UP NEXT ON MAUI TV NEWS, IT WAS A MIXED BAG IN THE MAUI REAL ESTATE MARKET LAST MONTH - BUT THE INDUSTRY IS SHOWING SIGNS OF LIFE. AND IF YOU SAW THOSE FUNNY-LOOKING GOOGLE CARS AROUND MAUI RECENTLY, THERE'S A PRETTY GOOD CHANCE THEY SAW YOU, TOO. THAT PLUS A FEAST FOR THE EARS AND IN THE EYES IN PRACTICING ALOHA. ALL THAT AND MORE WHEN MAUI TV NEWS CONTINUES.

(B BLOCK)

(REAL ESTATE SALES-OCT)(FOR SALE SIGN-SAKAMOTO)

J: DID YOU TRY TO BUY OR SELL A HOME LAST MONTH ON MAUI? IF SO, YOU KNOW IT'S STILL A TOUGH MARKET. BUT IF YOU WERE IN THE MARKET TO BUY OR SELL A CONDO, THEN YOU SAW THE GOOD NEWS THAT THAT MARKET IS STARTING TO REBOUND ON THE VALLEY ISLE.

(FF-CG-VO) ACCORDING TO THE REALTORS ASSOCIATION OF MAUI REPORT FOR SALES IN OCTOBER, SINGLE-FAMILY HOME SALES FELL BY A LITTLE MORE THAN 11 PERCENT. THERE WERE 71 SALES IN OCTOBER OF 2009. AND THE PRICE OF THOSE HOUSE THAT DID SELL FELL BY FOUR AND A HALF PERCENT TO AND AVERAGE OF 487 THOUSAND DOLLARS.

CONDO SALES, ON THE OTHER HAND, JUMPED SIGNIFICANTLY FOR A TOTAL OF 61 SALES IN OCTOBER OF THIS YEAR. AND THE AVERAGE PRICE PER UNIT ALSO JUMPED SIGNIFICANTLY - TOPPING 400 THOUSAND DOLLARS.

(ON-CAM) WHILE A LARGE PERCENTAGE OF SALES ARE SO-CALLED SHORT SALES AND FORECLOSURE PROPERTIES, MAUI REAL ESTATE EXPERTS SAY THE OCTOBER NUMBERS - PLUS A SHRINKING INVENTORY MEAN THE MARKET MAY BE GETTING ON FIRMER FOOTING. THE NEWS COMES ON TOP OF LAST WEEK'S REPORT BY NOTED ECONOMIST LEROY LANEY THAT 2010 WILL SEE A SIGNIFICANT SOLIDIFYING OF HAWAI'IS ECONOMY.

(RAINFALL SUMMARY)(PiP-RAINDROP)

J: BUT THERE WAS ANOTHER BAROMETER OF LIFE ON MAUI THAT SHOWED - NOR SURPRISINGLY - THAT IN OCTOBER, IT WAS "FEAST OR FAMINE"

(FF-CG-VO) ONCE AGAIN, CENTRAL AND WEST MAUI RECEIVED LESS THAN 10 PERCENT OF NORMAL RAINFALL FOR OCTOBER WHILE SOME SPOTS ON THE EASTERN SLOPES OF HALEAKALA GOT MORE THAN AN AVERAGE OCTOBER WOULD. THE U-S-G-S GAGE AT WEST WAILUAIKI RECORDED THE HIGHEST MONTHLY TOTAL OF MORE THAN 18 INCHES OF RAIN - WHILE PU'U KUKUI IN KAHALAWAI GOT THE HIGHEST ONE-DAY TOTAL OF NEARLY EIGHT INCHES. THAT HAPPENED ON OCTOBER THIRD.

(ON-CAM) THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ISSUED A FLASH FLOOD WATCH FOR THE ENTIRE STATE STARTING TUESDAY EVENING. O'AHU AND MOLOKA’I GOT EARLY DRENCHINGS - AND MAUI WAS IN THE PATH OF THE STORM. HOWEVER, THEY WEATHER SERVICE SAY THAT EL NINO CONDITIONS FOR THE REST OF THE FALL AND WINTER SHOW A BELOW-AVERAGE RAINFALL SEASON WITH JUST A FEW DUMPING STORMS IN THE FORECAST.

(GOOGLE STREET VIEW)(PiP-GOOGLE CAR)

J: DID YOU SEE THAT ODD-LOOKING CAR WITH THE STICK ON TOP AND THE GOOGLE STICKER ON THE SIDE THAT WAS TRAVELLING BACK AND FORTH ACROSS MAUI LAST MONTH? IF YOU DID, THEN THERE'S A CHANCE IT SAW YOU, TOO. INTERNET GIANT GOOGLE ANNOUNCED THIS WEEK THAT MAUI AND O'AHU ARE THE LATEST ADDITIONS TO THE "STREET VIEW" OPTION OF GOOGLE MAPS.

(VO) THE GOOGLE BLOG SPOT NOTED THAT HAWAII IS THE 50TH STATE TO GET THE GOOGLE STREET VIEW TREATMENT - WHICH ALLOWS WEB USERS TO GO FROM A SATELLITE VIEW OF EARTH FROM OUTER SPACE ALL THE WAY DOWN TO EARTH TO SEE WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE AT STREET LEVEL.

SO FAR THERE ARE ONLY A VERY FEW SPOTS ON MAUI - IN FACT JUST ONE AS OF LATE TUESDAY - BUT IT WAS PRETTY COOL TO SEE. O'AHU LANDMARKS ARE VERY FAMILIAR WITH THE GOOGLE TECHNOLOGY. GOOGLE OFFICIALS SAYS NEITHER OF THE ISLANDS WILL BE ENTIRELY AVAILABLE, BUT LARGE AREAS WILL BE COVERED AND ADDED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

(ON-CAM) GOOGLE HAS COME UNDER PRESSURE FROM SOME GROUPS CLAIMING AN INVASION OF PRIVACY BY THE SNAPSHOTS. GOOGLE COUNTERS THAT THE SCENES ARE ONLY CAPTURED FROM VANTAGE POINTS ALREADY AVAILABLE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC. ONE COUPLE IN PENNSYLVANIA SUED, SAYING THAT BY ZOOMING IN ON A MAP, YOU COULD SEE MORE OF THEIR PROPERTY THAN WOULD NORMALLY BE VISIBLE. A CIRCUIT COURT JUDGE THREW OUT THE CASE.

(PORTFOLIO DAY)([PiP-HUI NOEAU)

J: MAUI HAS A LONG HISTORY OF INSPIRING ARTISTIC EXPRESSION, AND THE HUI NO'EAU HAS A LONG HISTORY OF FOSTERING THE TALENTS OF ARTISTS YOUNG AND OLD. THIS WEEKEND, IS A ONCE-A-YEAR OPPORTUNITY FOR THE BUDDING YOUNG ARTIST AT YOUR HOUSE TO MAKE A MAJOR STEP IN DEVELOPING HIS OR HER SKILLS.

(FF-CG-VO) IT'S THE HUI'S THIRD ANNUAL PORTFOLIO DAY. IT'S SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS WHO ARE INTERESTED IN PURSUING A CAREER IN THE ARTS. THIS FREE EVENT OFFERS ONE-ON-ONE CONSULTATIONS WITH EXPERIENCED ART PROFESSIONALS FROM SEATTLE'S CORNISH COLLEGE OF THE ARTS, SAN FRANCISCO’S COLLEGE OF THE ARTS AND PORTLAND'S PACIFIC NORTHWEST COLLEGE OF THE ARTS.
