J: ALOHA EVERYONE. AND WELCOME TO MAUI TV NEWS. I'M JEFF KING AND YOU'RE WATCHING MAUI'S EXCLUSIVE ONLINE AND TELEVISION NEWSCAST - IN HIGH DEFINITION. NOW THERE ARE FOUR "R'S:" READIN, WRITIN, RHYTHMETIC...AND ROBOTS.

(TAKE LEGO FIRST PKG) SATURDAY AT MAUI HIGH SOME 200 YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN COMPETED IN THE FIRST LEGO LEAGUE 20-10 BODY FORWARD MAUI NUI ROBOTIC TOURNAMENT. TEAMS FROM MAUI, AND FROM MOLOKA'I WITH GREAT TEAM NAMES LIKE THE MIND REAPERS, THE UPCOUNTRY CRUSHERS AND THE MOLOKA'I GLEEKS RACED THE CLOCK TO SCORE AS MANY POINTS POSSIBLE BY PUTTING THEIR PRE-PROGRAMMED ROBOTS THROUGH THEIR PACES TO DO A TASK SET FOR EACH PIECE. AND IT YOU THINK ROBOTICS ARE JUST A GUY THING, THINK AGAIN.

Leslie Wilkins, Director, Women in Technology, MEDB

LW01: This year's competition is the first time that we have as many girls competing as we do boys. we're delighted to have finally achieved parity."

(CON'T VO) AND THAT PARITY ALSO CAME IN THE FORM OF EACH TIME HAVING ESSENTIALLY IDENTICAL ROBOTS - SO THE TASKS WEREN'T JUST MECHANICAL, THEY WERE STRATEGIC AS WELL. THE MOLOKA'I GLEEKS WON THE TEAMWORK AWARD, AND UPCOUNTRY CRUSHERS TOOK HOME THE ROBOT DESIGN AWARD. THE MAUI GIRLS FOUR-H CLUB WERE HONORED WITH THE ROBOT PERFORMANCE AWARD.

(ON-CAM TAG) TEAMS THAT ADVANCE FROM LAST WEEKEND'S CONTEST MOVE ON TO THE STATE COMPETITION IN HONOLULU NEXT MONTH. THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS ARE SET FOR NEXT APRIL IN SAINT LOIUS. MORE THAN 14,000 TEAMS WORLDWIDE WILL BE WHITTLED DOWN TO JUST A HANDFUL FOR THE GLOBAL COMPETITION.

(JOB OPENINGS) (PiP-ARAKAWA - ABERCROMBIE)

J: LOOKING FOR A JOB? THERE HAVE ALREADY BEEN A COUPLE OF CHOICE POSITIONS FILLED - BUT THERE ARE STILL DOZENS OF SLOTS OPEN IN THE NEW ADMINISTRATIONS OF MAYOR ELECT ALAN ARAKAWA AND GOVERNOR ELECT NEIL ABERCROMBIE.

LAST WEEK, ONLY TWO DAYS AFTER THE ELECTION, ARAKAWA NAMED KEITH REGAN AS MAUI COUNTY MANAGING DIRECTOR - A JOB HE HELD DURING ARAKAWA'S PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION.

WE HAVE THE LINK TO THE WEB PAGE FOR YOU TO COMPLETE YOUR APPLICATION AND ATTACH YOUR RESUME. FOR THAT LINK, CLICK ON THIS WEEK'S STORIES AT MAUITVNEWS-DOT-COM.

(FEED MY SHEEP)(PiP-FEED MY SHEEP)

J: PARTS OF THE ISLAND OF MAUI HAVE FINALLY BEEN GETTING SOME MUCH-NEEDED RAIN - SOME PLACES A LITTLE TOO MUCH. LAST WEEKEND CREWS RESPONDED TO THREE SEPARATE TREE-DOWN INCIDENTS THAT KNOCKED OUT POWER TO PORTIONS OF HAIKU.

BUT RAIN OR SHINE...MOSTLY RAIN - BECAUSE IT HAPPENED AT NIGHT - A GROUP OF HUNDREDS TRUDGED THE PERIMETER OF WAR MEMORIAL SOCCER FIELD TO RAISE MONEY FOR THOUSANDS. "FEED MY SHEEP" HAD THEIR ANNUAL FUNDRAISER LAST FRIDAY NIGHT AND - FROM THE LOOKS OF THE POST-WALK CELEBRATION - NOBODY SEEMED TO MIND GETTING A LITTLE WET.

(FF-CG-VO)

(ON-CAM-TAG) THE FINAL TALLY WAS 43 THOUSAND DOLLARS TO HELP PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE FOR AN ESTIMATED 10,000 PEOPLE EVERY DAY THROUGH THE FEED MY SHEEP MINISTRY. WHILE THE TOTAL COLLECTION IS DOWN SOME FROM LAST YEAR'S COLLECTION, THE MINISTRY CONTINUES TO SERVE FAMILIES IN WAILUKU, HAIKU, LAHAINA, HONOKAWAI, KIHEI AND HANA - AND HOPES TO EXPAND THEIR MINISTRY TO THE ISLAND OF LANA'I.

(A-TOSS-B)

J: COMING UP NEXT ON MAUI TV NEWS, BROKE 'DA MOUF...IF YOU'RE NOT A LOCAL, THE TERM MAY NOT SOUND LIKE MUCH FUN - BUT IF YOU KNOW DA KINE, THEN YOU KNOW BROKE 'DA MOUF COOKIE COMPANY IS DA KINE! THAT'S UP NEXT IN OUR GOT CHOICE THINK LOCAL REPORT. AND I'S BEEN NEARLY A YEAR SINCE A PORTION OF KEAWAKAPU REEF WAS DESTROYED BY GIANT SLABS OF CONCRETE, NIOW THE D-L-N-R WANTS TO TELL YOU WHAT THEY PLAN TO DO ABOUT IT. THOSE STORIES AND MORE WHEN WE COME BACK.

(B-BLOCK)

(GCTL)PiP-GCTL BROKE DA MOUTH)

J: THIS IS ANOTHER OF THOSE "YOU WISH IT WERE "SMELL-O-VISION" SEGMENTS. THIS WEEK OUR "GOT CHOICE? THINK LOCAL!" REPORT TAKES US TO A TINY STOREFRONT IN KAHULUI WITH A GIGANTIC REPUTATION FOR SOME OF THE TASTIEST LOCAL TREATS MAUI HAS TO OFFER.

(TAKE GCTL PKG) LLOYD YOKOYAMA IS A BUSY GUY

Lloyd Yokoyama, Busy Guy.

LYo1: I'm a chef, owner, cashier, dishwasher. Uh, you name it. I don't do windows. I have someone else do that for me."

BROKE DA MOUTH COOKIE TOOK NEARLY EVERY LAST TIME LLOYD AND HIS WIFE HAD SAVED UP...REALLY NEARLY EVERY LAST DIME.

ly02: "I think I had $40,000 dollars in the bank. Then after I paid for everything I had 58 dollars left in my checking account before the grand opening and I was telling my assistant, Ty Okubo over there, boy I'll be in a world of hurt if nothing happens on the grand opening. Nine years later, here we are still. Still gort that 58 bucks? Yes, I framed that one!".

NOT ONLY HAS BROKE DA MOUTH COOKIE COMPANY STAYED STEADILY BUST - BUT STEADILY TINY . HOW LITTLE ROOM DOES ALL THIS MAGIC TAKE?

LY03: "640 square feet - counting the vent room and the bathroom. (So you gotta like the folks that you work with) Yes. There's six steps to everything. I have two 24-quart mixers - everything is done by hand - with love , so employes don't get lost or missing."

OWNER LLOYD YOKOYAMA IS A DISCIPLINED MAN - KNOWING HIS LIMITS. INSTEAD OF INVESTING IN EXPANDING THE TIME THE SPACE THERE ON ALAMAHA STREET AND BRINGING IN A HUGE BAKING STAFF, HE AND WIFE DARLRNE HAVE OPTED TO REMAIN SMALL - SORT OF A MAUI BAKING BOUTIQUE - IF YOU WILL - MEMORABLE, FOCUSING ON THE QUALITY AND QUANTITY OF EVERY ITEM ND IT SHOWS.

BY THE WAY IN CASE YOU'RE WONDERING TIME NAME, THEA'BROAKE DA MOIUF COOKIE COOKIE COMPANY CAME FROM LLOYD'S FATHER IN LAW WHO PROCLAIMED THEM TO BE THE BEST COOIE ON MAUI, IT JUST KINDA' STUCK.

WITH THE AMAZING VARIETIES OF COOKES, MUFFINS, TURBANODO DUNKERS AND MORE, LLOYD HAS A FAVORITE AND HE NEVER GETS TIRED OF IT - AND I THINK YOU'LL SEE WHY.

LY04: My favorite thing to make, actually, is the is the Queen Emma because everybody loves it so much. It's guava, lilikoi and haupia - three. It has a perfect marriage - don't clash. Any food you throw at it - it match - Hawaiian food, Fhilipino food, Italian food - its a perfect match.

AND THEY MAKE THEM A LOT.

LY04B; "Today is about 10. More than 200 of these a month.

LLOYD GREW UP IN A PASTRY KITCHEN. THEN, WHEN THE WAR TOOK HIM OVERSEAS IN THE 70S. WHEN HE CAME HOME, HE PICKED UP WHERE HE LEFT OFF AND THE REST - AS THEY SAY - IS SWEET HISTORY. LLOYD AND HIS WIFE, DARLENE, WERE ALSO INSTRUMENTAL IN SETTING UP THE CULINARY ARTS PROGRAM AT UH-MAUI COLLEGE.

AND BROKE DA MOUTH IS A MEMBER OF MAUI COUNTY'S GOT CHOICE THINK LOCAL CAMPAIGN...SO LLOYD'S GOT A SWEET SPECIAL FOR YOU

LY05: My special is you come in to the store and I'll give you 10 percent off everything you buy in the month of November."

SEASONAL BASKETS AND HOLIDAY GOODIES TAKE TAKE THEIR TOLL ON BROKE DA MOUTH'S LITTLE BAKERY ON ALAMAHA STREET - SO, SOMTHING GOTTAS GIVE. THEY HAVE TO SUSPEND PRODUCTION OF HOT MALASADAS AND HOT DOUGHNUTS THROUGH THE CHRISTMAS SEASON TO NMAKE TIME TO CREATE LAVISH HOLIDAY TREATS.

WHILE YOU'RE THERE, YOU OWE IT TO YOURSELF TO PERUSE THE KIOSK OF A SELECTION OF EVERY IMAGINABLE KIND OF COOKIE.

BROKE DA MOUTH IS IN A KINDA' HARD-TO-SPOT HOLE-IN THE WALL ON ALAHMAHA STREET. BUT THERE'S NO QUESTION THAT WHEN YOU WALK IN - YOU'RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE - A TASTY REMINDER THAT WHEN YOU GOT CHOICE? THINK LOCAL!

(ON-CAM TAG) THERE ARE MORE THAN 200 MEMBERS OF MAUI COUNTY'S EXTREMELY SUCCESSFUL "GOT CHOICE? THINK LOCAL!" OPROGRAM. FOR A LIT OF THEM, AND THEIR SPECIAL OFFERS - PLUS HOW YOU CAN BECOME A MEMBER, JUST GO TO MAUI-COUNTY-THINK-LOCAL-DOT-COM.

(DLNR-KEAWAKAPU)

J: BELIEVE IT OR NOT, IT'S BEEN NEARLY A YEAR SINCE A BARGE DROPPED HUNDREDS OF TONS OF PRE-FORMED CONCRETE SLABS ON WHAT THEY THOUGHT WAS A SANDY SPOT NEAR THE EDGE OF KEAWAKAPU REEF IN SOUTH MAUI.

(VO) AT FIRST IT WAS A SURREAL SITE...LOOKING A LITTLE BIT LIKE ILLEGAL DUMPING AS SLAB AFTER GIANT SLAB WAS DROPPED INTO THE WATER, THE IDEA WAS WELL-INTENTIONED. IT WAS TO CREATE SO-CALLED "HIDEY-HOLES" FOR SMALLER FISH TO GROW UP IN, ATTRACTING NEW ALGAE AND CORAL GROWTH, AND HELP REPLENISH SOUTH MAUI NATIVE FISH STOCKS THAT WOULD EVENTUALLY OUTGROW THE HIDEY-HOLES AND MOVE UP THE COAST. AS MOST OF US KNOW, IT DIDN'T TURN OUT THAT WAY. INADVERTENTLY SOME 25 TONS OF CONCRETE FELL ON LIVE CORAL - MISSING THEIR INTENDED TARGET.

(ON-CAM) THIS FRIDAY MORNING IN THE CONFERENCE ROOM OF THE KALANA PAKUI BUILDING - THE COUNTY'S PLANNING DEPARTMENT - D-L-N-R STAFF WILL PRESENT THEIR OFFICIAL ASSESSMENT OF THE DAMAGE DONE TO THE CORAL REEF AT KEAWAKAPU. IT'S ALSO EXPECTED THAT A FINE WILL BE LEVIED AGAINST AMERICAN MARINE CORPORATION - OWNERS OF THE BARGE FROM WHICH THE CEMENT BLOCKS WERE DROPPED.

ALSO AT FRIDAY'S MEETING, D-L-N-R STAFF WILL TAKE PUBLIC TESTIMONY ON THE IDEA OF EXPANDING THE KEAWAKAPU WIND FARM ABOVE UKUMEHAME. FOR DETAILS ON THE AGENDA 0 AND MAPS , GO TO MAUI TV NEWS-DOT-COM AND FOLLOW THE LINK TO THIS WEEK'S STORIES.

(B-TOSS-C)

J: UP NEXT ON MAUI TV NEWS, THE BALDWIN BEARS HAVE ONE-LESS MAJOR FOE TO CONTEMPLATE AS STATE FINALS IN FOOTBALL START THIS WEEKEND. ND, IN CURTAIN CALL, PAUL JANES-BROWN TAKES A TRIP DOWN THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD AS THE WIZARD OF OZ COMES TO THE PRO ARTS PLAYHOUSE. THAT AND MORE WHEN MAUI TV NEWS CONTINUES.

(C-BLOCK)

(SPORTS)

J: CHECKING SPORTS, IN SPORTS, THE ODD-BALL STATE FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP PLAYOFF SEASON BEGINS THIS WEEKEND WHEN BALDWIN TAKES ON LEILEIHUA FRIDAY NIGHT AT WAR MEMORIAL STADIUM KICKOFF IS AT 6 P.M. NEXT FRIDAY IT'S LAHAINALUNA HOSTING EITHER KAIMUKI OR KAMEHAMEHA HAWAII AT WAR MEMORIAL. KICKOFF FOR THAT GAME IS SET FOR 7 P.M. BALDWIN WAS RANKED NUMBER THREE IN THE STATE GOING INTO THE CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES - BUT NO OFFICIAL WORD ON WHTHER OR NOT THAT RANKING CHANGED WHEN THE STATE'S TOP RATED TEAM, KAHUKU, WAS REQUIRED TO FORFEIT THEIR UNDEFEATED SEASON BECAUSE THEY USED AN INELIGIBLE PLAYER.

(CURTAIN CALL)(PiP - PJB)

J: PRO ARTS CONTINUES THEIR SEASON WITH A TRIP DOWN THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD TO THE LAND OF OZ. THEIR NEW PRODUCTION OF THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ OPENED LAST WEEK AND RUNS FIVE TIMES EACH WEEKEND UNTIL NOVEMBER 21st PAUL JANES-BROWN SPENT SOME TIME IN THE EMERALD CITY AND HAS THIS REVIEW…

PJB: IF YOU LOVED THE MOVIE, YOU WILL LOVE THIS PRODUCTION. IF YOU’VE BEEN LOCKED UP IN A BUBBLE ALL YOUR LIFE AND HAVEN’T SEEN THE MOVIE, THEN YOU WILL LOVE THIS SHOW TOO. THIS IS THE TALE WE ALL KNOW LOVE, NO FRACTURING FROM THE PRO ARTS PRODUCERS DOUG KENDRICK AND JONATHAN LEHMAN THIS TIME. THE STORY IS ABOUT DOROTHY, THE GIRL FROM KANSAS, WHO RUNS AWAY WITH HER LITTLE DOG TOTO, BECAUSE HE’S GOING TO BE TAKEN AWAY FROM HER FOR BITING THE WICKED MISS GULCH. EXCEPT SHE GETS CAUGHT IN A TORNADO AND ENDS UP IN MUNCHKIN LAND IN OZ A MAGICAL PLACE OF GOOD AND BAD WITCHES, STRANGE LITTLE PEOPLE, A WIZARD, A SCARECROW, A TIN MAN, AN EMERALD CITY AND SCARY WINKIES, WHERE SHE LEARNS A VALUABLE LESSON.

THE STORY IS FROM L. FRANK BAUM’S BOOK AND THE DIALOGUE IS RIGHT OUT OF THE MOVIE INCLUDING, “I’LL GET YOU MY PRETTY, AND YOUR LITTLE DOG TOO!” AND “I’M MELTING.” THE SPECIAL EFFECTS ARE QUITE EFFECTIVE. BUT IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR “SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW” OR “WE’RE OFF TO SEE THE WIZARD” IT’S NOT HERE. INSTEAD THERE’S A NEW SCORE AND MUSIC BY HANNAH CARROLL AND ROBERT FLOSSIE AND THEY HAVE PUT IN ONE OF THE GREAT SONGS FROM THE WIZ, IF YOU BELIEVE BY CHARLIE SMALLS.

IT’S ALWAYS HARD TO REINTERPRET AN ICON, BUT I THINK CARROLL AND SMALLS HAVE DONE QUITE A NICE JOB. WHILE YOU MAY NOT LEAVE THE SHOW HUMMING THE TUNES, LINES SUCH AS “A DOGGIE LIKE MY TOTO IS REALLY SO DOGGONE GOOD FOR ME” AND THIS ONE FROM “GLAD THAT YOU ARE BAD” SUNG BY THE WICKED WITCH OF THE WEST, FIRST YOU WIPE AWAY YOUR SMILE
THEN YOU THINK OF SOMETHING VILE
AND IN JUST A LITTLE WHILE
YOU’LL FEEL SO GLAD THAT YOU ARE BAD, WILL STICK IN YOUR BRAIN.

WHEN I SAW THE SHOW, I THOUGHT, WELL, IT’S JUST LIKE THE MOVIE, EVERYONE SEEMS TO BE CHANNELING SOME ONE FROM THE FILM, BUT THE DIRECTOR ASSURED ME THAT MOST OF THE CAST, UNBELIEVABLY, MUST HAVE BEEN IN THE BUBBLE I REFERRED TO EARLIER AND HAD NEVER SEEN THE MOVIE OR HAD ONLY SEEN BITS OF IT. THEY WERE SHOWN THE FILM DURING TECH WEEK RIGHT BEFORE THEY OPENED. IT’S AS IF THE PARTS CAN ONLY BE PLAYED THE WAY THEY WERE DONE IN THE FILM. IT’S LIKE THE CHARACTERS DEFINE THE ACTORS NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND.

ONCE AGAIN LEHMAN AND KENDRICK HAVE ASSEMBLED A STELLAR CAST INCLUDING THE REMARKABLE 14 YEAR OLD TYLER CHARBONNEAU AS DOROTHY. ONE FEELS HER PREDICAMENT AND SYMPATHIZES WITH HER TOUGH CHOICES. HER THREE COMPANIONS THE SCARECROW, TIN MAN AND COWARDLY LION, ARE PLAYED BY DALE BUTTON, WHO SEEMS TO BE A THIRD MEMBER OF THE COMPANY, JOSEPH DUNCAN AND BILL SCHNITZER RESPECTIVELY. THESE THREE ARE PERFECT. THEY UNDERSTAND WHO THEY ARE AND PLAY THEIR PARTS TO THE HILT. SCHNITZER ALMOST STEALS THE SHOW. KALANI WHITFORD IN THE DUEL ROLE OF MISS GULCH AND THE WICKED WITCH OF THE WEST REALLY LOOKS LIKE THE LATE MARGARET HAMILTON. HIS RENDITION OF GLAD TO BE BAD IS A REAL SHOW STOPPER. NEWCOMER LAUREL SHERWOOD IS INCANDESCENT AS GLINDA. SHE SPARKLES AND HER SMILE IS SO WARM AND ENGAGING SHE TAKES EVERYONE IN UNDER HER SPELL OF GOODNESS. HER BEST MOMENT IS WHEN SHE SINGS “IF YOU BELIEVE.” SHERWOOD HAS A CRISP, CLEAR, POWERFUL VOICE THAT MADE ME WISH SHE HAD MORE SONGS. THE MUNCHKINS AND WINKIES ARE PLAYED WITH ENERGY AND ENTHUSIASM BY JAMES NATIVIDAD, JETT BATTOON, ISAAC RAUCH AND LANA CANTON. LAURA BLOOM FARBER ROUNDS OUT THE CAST AS AUNTY EM AND JONATHAN LEHMAN NOT ONLY DIRECTS BUT ALSO PLAYS THE PART OF THE GATEKEEPER AND THE WIZARD.
LIKE ALL PRO ARTS PRODUCTIONS, THERE IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THE CHILDREN TO GET INVOLVED AND ITS GREAT FUN WHEN THEY DO.
MARTI KLUTH ABLY HANDLES THE DUEL ROLE AS MUSICAL DIRECTOR AND ACCOMPANIST, CARO WALKER HAS GIVEN THE THEATER SOME NEW SETTINGS AND KATHLEEN SCHULZ HAS DONE A TERRIFIC JOB WITH THE COSTUMES AND THE ACTORS HAVE DONE A GREAT JOB ON THEIR MAKEUP. THIS SHOW, LOOKS, SOUNDS AND PLAY WONDERFULLY. IT RUNS FIVE TIMES EACH WEEKEND UNTIL THE 21ST OF NOVEMBER. DON’T MISS IT! FOR MORE INFORMATION GO TO MAUITVNEWS.COM AND CLICK ON THE LINK TO COMING ATTRACTIONS.

THAT’S CURTAIN CALL FOR THIS WEEK, I’M PAUL JANES-BROWN, A HUI HOU AND BE SURE TO GO AND SEE LIVE ARTISTS PERFORMING THROUGHOUT OUR ISLAND FOR YOUR EDIFICATION. STAY TUNED FOR COMING ATTRACTIONS UP NEXT RIGHT AFTER THESE MESSAGES.
