J: ALOHA EVERYONE. AND THANK YOU FOR JOINING US THIS WEEK ON MAUI TV NEWS. I'M JEFF KING.

JY: AND I'M JULIE Y. THE MOMENTUM HAS BEEN BUILDING FOR MONTHS TOWRD WHAT SHOULD BE SOME TURNING POINT DECISIONS THIS WEEK IN TWO MAJOR ISSUES AFFECTING MAUI'S FUTURE.

(turn to cam)(PiP: Superferry)

THIS IS THE WEEK THAT WILL MAKE OR POSSIBLY BREAK THE FUTURE OF THE HAWAII SUPERFERRY WHILE A MAUI JUDGE REVEALS WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT. ALSO, THE LONG-DEBATED HONUA'ULA VOTE HAS BEEN PROMISED BY WEEK'S END. MAUI TV NEWS REPORTER JEFF KING BRINGS US UP TO DATE.

(take SUPERFERRY/HONUA'ULA package)
(Superferry/Honua'ula THERE WERE TWO MAJOR MAUI ISSUES DESTINED FOR HEADLINES THIS WEEK. THE SUPERFERRY AND HONUA-ULA IN BOTH CASES, MAJOR DECISION WERE ANTICIPATED. IN ONE CASE THAT CAME TRUE. AFTER SEVERAL MORE MONTHS IN HERE RATHER THAN OUT HERE, THE HAWAII SUPERFERRY GOT THE WORD WEDNESDAY THAT THEY CAN SAIL. AFTER SUCCESSFULLY ARGUING THE MERITS OF ACT 343, WAILUKU ATTORNEY ISAAC HALL PREVAILED IN A CASE THAT LED TO AN INJUNCTION AGAINST THE FERRY'S OPERATION.

GOVERNOR LINDA LINGLE HASTILY ASSEMBLED THE LEGISLATURE AND IN A MATTER OF DAYS, THAT INCLUDED WHIRLWIND STATEWIDE PUBLIC TESTIMONY, ACT 2 BECAME LAW. THE MATTER WOUND UP RIGHT BACK HERE IN JUDGE CARDOZA'S COURT. THIS TIME - AS AN ANXIOUS PUBLIC WATCHED ON AKAKU, MAUI COMMUNITY TELEVISION, ATTORNEY ISAAC HALL ISSUED A STERN WARNING.

(Hall bite from TV)

THE STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL SAID HE WAS OUTRAGED THAT SUCH A THREAT WOULD BE MADE. LATER WEDNESDAY, JUDGE CARDOZA ALSO COMMENTED THAT THE COURT WOULD NOT BE SWAYED, STATING THAT SUCH THREATES CARRIED NO WEIGHT WITH HIS COURT. HE WENT ON TO RULE IN THE STATE'S FAVOR. THE NEW LAW, ACT 2, TRUMPS THE OLD LAW, ACT 343 AND HE HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO DISSOLVE THE INJUNCTION. LATER, HALL COMMENTED ON HIS EARLIER REMARKS.

(Hall bite-"no threat")

THE STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL WAS ALSO ASKED WHY THE STATE'S TOP LEGAL DEFENDER NEEDED TO COME TO MAUI - WHEN DEPUTY ATTORNEY WILLIAM WYNHOFF HAD SEEN THE ENTIRE PROCESS THROUGH FROM HERE.

(BENNET COMMENT)

an evidently relieved john garibaldi later RELEASE THIS STATEMENT SAYING THEY WERE LOOKING FORWARD TO COMMENCING SERVICE AS SOON AS POZSSIBLE. MAUI TV ASKED IF HAWAII SUPERFERRY HAS RESPONDED TO ANY OF THE OBJECTIONS RAISED DURING THE FOUR-WEEK EVEIDENTIARY HEARING. SPECIFICALL, A' INCIDENTAL TAKE PERMIT" THAT WOULD AT LEAST PARTIALLY ADDRESS ANY POSSIBLE COLLISSIONS WITH HIMPBACK WHALES.

(Garibaldi bite)

WITHIN AN HOUR JUDGE CARDOZA'S RULING WAS COMPLE,E SIGNED, AND YOU CAN READ IT BY FOLLOWING THE LINK FROM OUR WEBSITE AT MAUITVNEWS.COM. LATER WEDNESDAY, MAUI COUNTY MAYOR CHARMAINE TAVARES ISSUED A STATEMENT EXPRESSING HER DISAPPOINTMENT WITH THE NEW STATE LAW, AND APPEALING TO THE PUBLIC FOR CALM, STATING - IN PART - "i AM HOPING THAT PEOPLE WILL RESPECT THE LAW AND THE ENFORCEMENT OF THE LAW, AND MAINTAIN THEIR CIVILITY NO MATTER WHAT SIDE OF THE ISSUE THEY ARE ON.'

HAll says AN APPEAL IS LIKELY...SO DON'T CHANGE THE CHANNEL JUST YET. MEANWHILE, ON ANOTHER AKAKU CHANNEL, THE HONUA'ULA VOTE....POSTPONED AGAIN...FOR THE 25TH TIME. A VOTE THERE MAY COME FRIDAY...BUT HISTORY SAYS, DON'T COUNT ON IT. REPORTING FROM WAILUKU FOR MAUI TV NEWS, I'M JEFF KING.

(NORVOVIRUS) (PiP - PrideofAloha)

J: THINGS WERE PRETTY HUMBLE WHEN THE 'PRIDE OF HAWAII' FINALLY DOCKED AT KAHULUI HARBOR FRIDAY MORNING. FIRST, THE CRUISE SHIP WAS DIVERTED FROM KAHULUI TO KONA LAST THURSDAY AFTER A SMALL OIL SPILL AROUND - AND UNDER - PIER ONE REQUIRED A SPECIALIZED CONTAINMENT AND CLEANING CREW TO BE BROUGHT IN FROM HONOLULU FOR MOP-UP. TURNS OUT THE CULPRIT WAS A LONG-FORGOTTEN OIL PIPE OWNED BY MAUI ELECTERIC THAT WAS THOUGHT UNUSED AND SEALED. THE SPILL OF LESS THAN 300 GALLONS WAS CONSIDERED CLEANED UP ENOUGH TO ALLOW THE PRIDE OF HAWAII TO DOCK FRIDAY MORNING.

(VO) THIS WEEK IT WASN'T THE PRIDE OF HAWAII AT PIER ONE - BUT THE PRIDE OF AMERICA THAT TIED UP MONDAY MORNING. WHY? THE PRIDE OF HAWAII WAS UNDERGOING AN EXTENSIVE CLEAN-UP IN HONOLULU. WHEN PRIDE OF HAWAII ANCHORED FRIDAY MORNING, WORD SPREAD QUICKLY THAT MANY OF THE PASSENGERS AND CREW HAD BECOME ILL. AN OUTBREAK OF NORVOVIRUS HAS SINCE BEEN CONFIRMED AS THE CULPRIT. MAUI DISTRICT HEALTH OFFICER DR. LORRIN PANG WAS QUICK TO SQUELCH RUMORS THAT THE ENTIRE PASSENGER LOAD OF ABOUT 2000 PEO0PLE HAD TAKEN SICK.

(vo) HE DID CONFIRM, HOWEVER, THAT - BASED ON THE SYMPTOMS DESCRIBED, HE WAS FAIRLY CERTAIN THE CAUSE WAS NORVOVIRUS AND NOT STOMACH FLU. IN EITHER CASE, SYMPTOMS ARE VIOLENT - AND CAN BE SERIOUS - BUT ARE RARELY FATAL EXPECT WHEN INFECTING PEOPLE WITH SEVERELY IMPAIRED IMMUNE SYSTEMS. LATE MONDAY STATE HEALTH OFFICIALS CONFIRMED THE BUG AS THE NORVOVIRUS.

(on-cam) TURNS OUT THE NUMBER INFECTED WAS AROUND 225. IN ANY CASE, THE SHIPS DEPARTURE FROM KAHULUI WAS DELAYED AS NORWEGIAN CRUISE LINE BROUGHT IN EXTRA CLEANING CREWS TO SANITIZE THE SHIP AND DISINFECT IT AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. THE SYMPTOMS OF THE INFECTION ARE PRETTY AWFUL...AND SO IS THE CLEANUP. THE NORVOVIRUS OUTBREAK ON A CRUSISE SHIP IS FOURTH SUCH OCCURANCE ON THE INTERISLAND LINE IN THE LAST TWO YEARS.

NORVOVIRUS IS A PHYSICALLY DEBILITATING ILLNESS THAT PRETTY MUCH KNOCKS IT'S VICTIMS FLAT FOR 24-TO-48 HOURS. IT CAUSES SEVERE DIARRHEA AND VOMITING AND OTHER FLU-LIKE SYMPTOMS. IT IS SPREAD NOT ONLY BY CONTACT OR BREATHING EXPOSED AREAS, BUT ALSO BY FOOD - MAKING THE ENCLOSED SURROUNDINGS OF A CRUISE SHIP AN IDEAL BREEDING GROUND FOR GERMS. THE BEST DEFENSE AGAINST CATCHING IT IS FREQUENT HAND-WASHING. IF YOUR LIVING AREA HAS BEEN EXPOSED TO NORVOVIRUS, DISINFECTING WITH A BLEACH-BASED CLEANSER IS THE ANSWER. AND DON'T FORGET TO USE BLEACH WHILE WASHING ANY CLOTHING WORN BY A NORVOVIRUS VICTIM.

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

JY: COMING UP NEXT ON MAUI TV NEWS, SUNSHINE, WIND AND WATER. NOT ONLY DOES THAT SOUND LIKE AN IDEAL MAUI VACATION...BUT IT ALSO SOUNDS LIKE THE IDEAL FOR OUR ENERGY FUTURE. WE'LL TAKE YOU TO A FIRST-OF-ITS KIND ENERGY EXPO HELD LAST WEEK ON MAUI.

J: THEN WE'LL TAKE YOU BACK TO WAILEA FOR ANOTHER EVENT - THIS ONE PROMOTING SOMETHING YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE EVER HEARD OF: THE MAUI NATIVE HAWAIIAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE. THAT AND MORE WHEN MAUI TV NEWS CONTINUES.

(energy expo)(PiP-cfl or segway)

JY: IT USED TO BE STRAIGHT FROM A SCIENCE FICTION NOVEL: ELECTRICITY FROM THE SUN, THE WIND AND THE OCEAN ITSELF. NOT ANY MORE. BUT NOW THE CHALLENGE IS TO MAKE THESE TECHNOLOGIES AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE. MAUI TV NEWS REPORTER JEFF KING HAS THE STORY.

(Take Energy Expo Pkg)
(Energy Expo Pkg text ENERGY. TO MOST OF US, THIS IS AS FAR AS WE UNDERSTAND IT. FLIP THE SWITCH, TURN THE KEY, OR - IN MY FIRST TRY EVER ON A SEGWAY, YOU JUST LEAN FORWARD.

BUT THERE'S A PRICE FOR ENERGY...BEYOND THE BILL. THE RESOURCES THAT SUPPLY IT ARE DWINDLING AND THE PRICE JUST KEEPS GOING UP. fortunately, there are forward thingking-people who look around aND SEE THINGS THE REST OF US DON'T THINGS THAT MAKE THINGS LIGHT UP, MOVE AND MOVE US...POWERED BY THINGS WE DIDN'T THINK OF BEFORE.

THE MAUI COUNTY ENERGY EXPO AT THE GRAND WAILEA LAST WEEK WAS A FIRST OF ITS KIND EVENT. IT DREW EXECUTIVES, CITIZENS AND THE CURIOUS TO EXPLAIN AND EXPLORE POWER ALTERNATIVES FROM ALL FIELDS - PHOTO-VOLTAIC, LOCALLY GROWN FUELS FOR BIODIESEL, GAS-ELECTRIC HYBRID VEHICLES, GEOTHERMAL ENERGY, WIND AND MORE. PUTTING THIS KIND OF EVENT TOGETHER, HOWEVER, WAS NOT EARTH-SHATTERING.

DT01: "This came together rather quickly, but we have been working on it since January - it has been one of the mayor's initiatives so, as soon as she took office we started working on this."

GIVEN THE VARIETY OF PARTICIPATING COMPANIES, WAS THERE ANY PROBLEM DECIDING WHO WOULD OR WOULD NOT BE INVITED TO PARTICIPATE?

DT02: "We've been approached by a lot of different people who have been bringing their projects to us since January, so we calld them all and asked if they'd like to participate and everyone of them said 'yes.' The mayor wanted this event to be 'inclusive," and that's why we had two days of pack panels and I think we gave out a lot of good information to the community."

MAYOR CHARMAINE TAVARES REMARKED THAT THE WHOLE CONCEPT OF THE ENERGY EXPO SEEMED TO BE BASED ON THE KIND OF THINGS ENVISIONED BY H.G. WELLS, AND THE CREATORS OF BUCK RODGERS, FLASH GORDON AND STAR TREK. IN 2007, THOUGH, IT'S NOT SCIENCE FICTION ANYMORE.

CT01: "I wasn't aware of the breadth of it - how many peoople there were off the grid. The gentleman who presented today used a number that surprised me. I've been to 6 or 10 homes where people are off the grid and some people have spent big bucks , and are totally off the grid one way or another."

RIGHT NOW, MOST OFF-THE-GRID ENERGY SYSTEMS ARE PHOTOVOLTAIC, P-V FOR SHORT, AND MAUI LEADS THE WAY THERE - WITH MORE SOALR PANELS RUNNING HOUSEHOLDS THAN ANYWHERE ELSE IN HAWAII. ON EXPERT SAYS THERE WERE 200 SUCH OPERATIONS ACROSS THE STATE AT THE BEGINNING OF THIS YEAR. A NUMBER THAT COULD DOUBLE BY THE END OF THIS YEAR. OTHER EXPERTS PRESENTED COMPELLING ARGUMENTS FOR ALTERNATE FORMS OF FULE AND ENERGY...AND A GROUP OF YOUNG ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING EXPERTS FROM SEABURY HALL WERE HERE TO LEARN - AS WELL AS TEACH. THEY BROUGHT THEIR ELECTRIC CAR FROM LAST YEAR BUT ARE ALREADY WORKING ON THEIR NEW ONE - DUE OUT IN THE SPRING.

Elise Sokolow, Seabury Hall, Project Manager, Seabury Hall Electric Car.

ES01: "The new one is a newer car. It's going to be more efficient. It have a different battery with longer range, so all-around it's a more efficient car."

JUST TO GIVE YOU A SAMPLE OF THE KINDS OF INNOVATIVE IDEAS THAT WERE PRESENTED AT THE ENERGY EXPO, ONE OF THE MOST NATURALLY ENERGIZING REVOLUTIONARY IDEAS FOR MAUI'S POWER FUTURE CAME FROM DOWN UNDER. DR. PETER KALISH DESCRIBED HIS COMPANY'S PATENTED METHOD OF TURNING OCEAN SWELLS INTO ENERGY OR INTO POTABLE DRINKING WATER. THIS WORKING PROTOTYPE - DISPLAYED DURING DR. KALISH'S PRESENTATION WOULD BE ANCHORED ABOUT A HALF-MILE OFF SHORE.

Peter Kalish, PhD, Senior Advisor, Oceanlinks, Ltd.

PK01: "The action of the swell drives a piston that compresses air through a turbine and that's the root of the critical part of the technology. The thing that was different is that - before - no one has been able to keep the turbine spinning in the same direction. But our inventor, Dr. Tom Dennis, develpped a blad that changes direction, allowing the turbine to keep spinning in one direction. That's connected to a generator which then feeds electricity through a cable back to shore and into the grid."

THE SYSTEMS OPERATES IDEALLY WHEN OCEAN SWELLS OF ABOUT TWO TO 20 FEET PASS BY ABOUT EVERY FIVE TO 20 SECONDS. IN OTHER WORDS - IT SOUNDS IDEAL FOR JUST ABOUT ANYWHERE IN MAUI COUNTY. OCEANLINKS HAS NARROWED IT DOWN, THOUGH.

PK02: "We're looking along the north coast. Right now we're wave logging, then we'll narrow down the selected sites. That will begin the permitting process, then we begin to work with the stakeholders."

THE TECHNOLOGY IS ALL SO NEW, BUT KALISH SAYS - SO FAR - HE HAS RECEIVED TREMENDOUS COOPERATION FROM THE MAYOR AND THE GOVERNOR'S OFFICES. THE ALL-NATURAL ENERGEY GENERATION WOULD ALSO BE ALMOST INVISIBLE.

PK03: "The sites we are looking at are in uninhabited areas that are sheltered by cliff face so it can't - it won't be seen from the road and we don't believe it's anywhere near the whale sanctuary or any other sacred areas, so we're hoping we'll find the ideal spot pretty soon."

WHILE IMAGINATION CERTAINLY IS NOT A ROADBLOCK IN BRINGING THESE IDEAS TO LIFE, BUREAUCRACY CAN BE. MAYOR TAVARES WANTS TO CHANGE THAT. THE MAYOR SAYS SHE IS INSPIRED TO TAKE A LEADERSHIP ROLE IN HAWAII IN HELPING MORE CREATIVE POWER USES POSSIBLE...AND LEGAL

CT02: "When we talk about the County's role in this I see the County's role as an enabler. We need to enable the kinds of projects that can produce renewable energy. And it it doesn't accomodate it, we need to change it. I already know we need to change a bunch of stuff. We also need to look at state legislation. Why single out one technology. For a while everyone was thinking ethanol. Well, is ethanol the answer? We don't know. So why not allow all of these creative ideas a chance and the one that gets the best results will be the one that gets the credits."///

IN HER CLOSING REMARKS, THE MAYOR COULDN'T RESIST THE PUN THAT SHE WAS ENERGIZED BY THE POWER GENERATED DURING TYHE TWO-DAY SYMPOSIUM. BUT SHE SAYS SHE WANTS TO BE SURE TO PUT THAT ENERGY TO GOOD USE BY LOOKING AHEAD, AND USING THIS EVENT AS A BENCHMARK. A BEGINNING SPOT ON AN ENERGY MAP ACROSS TIME TO THE FUTURE. THEN, LOOK BACK NEXT YEAR AND SEE HOW FAR WE'VE COME.

CT03: "In the year since that first conference - out of that conference we outlined these things and this is what we've accomplished. It always feels good to say 'weve accomplished this. instead of "we're stduying that." Or we're thinking about that. Or we're considering that."

IDEAS BLOOM, TECHNOLOGIES EMERGE, GOVERNMENT COOPERATES AND PEOPLE BENEFIT. SOUNDS LIKE A NICE IDEA...AND IF IT'S AS EASY AS LEARNING TO RIDE A SEGWAY...IT'S AN ATTAINABLE IDEA. REPORTING FROM WAILEA FOR MAUI TV NEWS, I'M JEFF KING.


THE TECHNOLOGY IS FASCINATING. TO LEARN MORE ABOUT IT, YOU'LL FIND AN EXTENDED VERSION OF THIS STORY BY FOLLOWING THE LINK FROM OUR WEBSITE AT MAUITVNEWS.COM

(HI chamber)(PiP-HI chamber logo)

J: DID YOU KNOW THERE WAS A MAUI NATIVE HAWAIIAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE? NOT ONLY IS THERE SUCH AN ENTITY, BUT IT'S GOT SOME VERY POWERFUL ORGANIZATIONS, PEOPLE, AND MESSAGES TO GET OUT TO THE PUBLIC.

THE GROUP MET FOR IT'S FIRST MAJOR ORGANIZED EVENT AT THEIR FIRST ANNUAL BUSINESS FEST AT THE GRAND WAILEA THIS WEEK. A VARIETY OF SESSIONS, PANELS, SEMINARS AND QUESTION-AND-ANSWER SESSIONS - ALL DESIGNED TO MEET A NEED...ONE RECOGNIZED ONLY RECENTLY AFTER THE MAUI CHAMBER'S FIRST PRESDEINT WAS INSTALLED SOON AFTER HE WAS ELECTED A TRUSTEE FOR THE OFFICE OF HAWAIIAN AFFAIRS.

Boyd Mossman, First Past presdeint of Maui , Judge and OHA trustee FOUNDED IT AFTER BEING ELECTED A TRUSTEE TO OFFICE OF HAWAIIAN AFFAIRS.

BM01 "I looked around and said why don't we have one on Maui. Native HI are lacking in business sense and we need one here. So we needed adrenelin here. so we started this chamber here. And we've got a good bunxch of people as you may have seen this morning."

AMONG THAT BUNCH WERE ENTERTAINER RICHARD HO'OPII, AND THE LISEUTENANT GOVERNOR WHO IS GLAD TO SEE THE EFFORT BEGIN ON THE VALLEY ISLE.

Duke: The MAUI Native HI C of C...advance biz. NEW here, but established. Networking."

IN HIS SPEECH, THE LIEUTENANT S[POKE OF THE HOME-TOWN ADVANTAGE THAT NATIVE HAWAIIANS HAVE. ADVANTAGES...HOME TOWN ADVANTAGES. YOU KNOW THE ISLANDS. YOU KNOW THE CULTURE YOU GREW UP IN IT. BUT ARE THERE ANY Disadvantages TO BEING A NATIVE HAWAIIAN AND TRYING TO START A BUSINESS.?

DA02 "I don';t think there really are any disadvantages. i THINK IT'S LIKE ANY OTHER BUSINESS. You see an opportunity and you take advantage of it.

SMALL BUSINESS EXPERT DAVID FISHER ALSO ADDRESSED THE QUESTION OF ADVANTAGE OR DISADVANTAGE.

df: "It can be, that came up this morning. Douinjg biz in HI - who you know - connections - that's what we discussed this morning at panels. Who you know who you can trust."

THE FIRST PAST PRESDIENT OF THE MAUI NATIVE HAWAIIAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE SAYS HIS GROUP ISN'T HERE TO COMPETE WITH THE NORMAL MAUI CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, BUT TO SUPPORT THE HOST CULTURE WITH EVERY TOOL THAT MODERN DAY BUSINESS HAS TO OFFER.

BM02: "We believe that it's good to help Haaiians. We don't want to go down path of California - to become California west. We want to remain Hawaiian. And we believe if you don't help Hawaiians you won't have HI as it is today."

(on-camTag) FOUNDED IN 1974, THE MISSION OF THE NATIVE HAWAIIAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE IS TO STRENGTHEN NATIVE HAWAIIAN BUSINESSES AND PROFESSIONS BY BUILDING ON THE FOUNDATIONS OF RELATIONSHIPS AND RESOURCES AND THE HAWAIIAN VALUES OF ALOHA, MALAMA, HO'OKIPA, LAULIMA, 'IMI 'IKE, LOKOMAIKA'I, PONO, HO'OMAU, HA'AHA'A AND LOKAHI.

J: COMING UP NEXT IN SPORTS, IT MAY BE A QUIET WEEK FOR THE M-I-L, BUT M-I-L ATHLETES ARE MAKING BIG NEWS ACROSS THE STATE. AND, IT'S TIOJE FOR SOME OF THE NATION'S BEST COLLEGE BASKETBALL TEAMS TO CONVERGE ON MAUI. KALAPANA HAS DETAILS UP NEXT IN SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS.

K: FOOTBALL, BASKETBALL, VOLLEYBALL AND SOCCER...NONE OF IT'S HAPPENING IN MAUI INTERSCHOLASTIC LEAGUE COMPETITION RIGHT NOW...BUT THERE ARE BIG HAPPENINGS INVOLVING MAUI, M-I-L TEAMS AND M-I-L ALUMNI ACROSS HAWAII THIS WEEK. ALOHA EVERYONE AND WELCOME TO SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS. I'M KALAPANA.

STARTING WITH FOOTBALL - THE BALDWIN BEARS LACE 'EM UP THIS WEEKEND FOR THE FIRST ROUND OF THE STATE DIVISION ONE VARSITY FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIPS. BALDWIN'S PERFECT M-I-L SEASON PITS THEM AGAINST O'AHU'S FARRINGTON HIGH THIS SATURDAY NIGHT AT WAR MEMORIAL STADIUM.

(vo) BALDWIN’S ONLY LOSS THIS YEAR CAME IN A PRESEASON MATCH. SINCE THEN, THE BEARS HAVE RACKED UP AN IMPRESSIVE 7 AND O RECORD IN M-I-L LEAGUE PLAY. AND WHILE THEIR OFFENSE WAS THE MONEY-MAKER, THEIR DEFENSE WAS A LITTLE BIT STYMIED EARLY IN THE SEASON. THEY IMPROVED TREMENDOUSLY IN THE HOME STRETCH, THOUGH, ALLOWING OPPONENTS LESS THAN A HUNDRED-AND-FIFTY YARDS PER GAME OVER THE FINAL THREE GAMES OF THE SEASON - GOOD ENOUGH FOR THE NUMBER TWO DEFENSIVE RANKING IN THE M-I-L.

(on-cam) BALDWIN FACES A FARRINGTON TEAM THAT WENT 6, TWO AND ONE IN THE OAHU INTERSCHOLASTIC ASSOCIATION THIS YEAR. THE WINNER OF SATURDAY NIGHT'S QUARTERFINAL WILL MOVE ON TO FACE LEILEHUA IN THE SEMI-FINALS ON NOVEMBER 24TH AT ALOHA STADIUM. THE STATE DIVISION ONE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME WILL BE PLAYED AT ALOHA STADIUM ON NOVEMBER 30TH. GO BEARS!

INCIDENTALLY, I DID MENTION THE BEARS WERE THE NUMBER TWO RANKED DEFENSE IN THE M-I-L THIS YEAR. THE TOP SPOT WENT TO LAHAINALUNA, WHO ALLOWED OPPONENTS ONLY 167 YARDS PER GAME ALL SEASON. ON OFFENSE THE LUNAS’ ONLY LOSS CAME AT THE HANDS OF THE BEARS.

(vo) THE LUNAS' IMPRESSIVE M-I-L RECORD OF 6-1 EARNED THEM THE STATE'S TOP-RANKING IN DIVISION TWO VARSITY FOOTBALL - GIVING THEM A BYE UNTIL THE SEMI-FINAL ROUND WHEN LAHAINALUNA WILL HOST THE WINNERS OF THE KAIMUKI-KAMEHAMEHA HAWAII GAME. THAT GAME WILL BE PLAYED AT WAR MEMORIAL STADIUM ON NOVEMBER 24TH. THE STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS FOR DIVISION TWO FOOTBALL WILL BE PLAYED ON NOVEMBER 30TH AT ALOHA STADIUM – JUST BEFORE THE DIVISION ONE CHAMPIONSHIP.

(ONCAM) IN SOCCER NEWS, TWO M-I-L GRADUATES HELPED THE UNIVERSITY OF HAWAII RAINBOW WAHINE CLAIM THEIR FIRST EVER WESTERN ATHLETIC CONFERENCE TITLE ON SUNDAY, DEFEATING FRESNO STATE IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME ONE TO NOTHING (NIL?). KOREN TAKEYAMA, A 2003 GRADUATE OF BALDWIN HIGH PUT THE WAHINE INTO THE FINAL MATCH WITH HER SECOND-PERIOD GOAL IN FRIDAY NIGHT'S SEMI-FINAL GAME. ANOTHER FORMER M-I-L SOCCER STANDOUT, TARYN FUKUROKU - A 2005 MAUI HIGH GRADUATE - HAD 12 GOALS THIS SEASON FOR THE RAINBOW WAHINE. BOTH TAKEYAMA AND FUKUROKU WERE NAMED TO THE WAC CHAMPIONSHIP ALL-TOURNAMENT TEAM.

MOVING ON TO BASKETBALL, THE ANNUAL E-A SPORTS MAUI INVITATIONAL BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT IS HERE AGAIN. STARTING THIS MONDAY, HOST CHAMINADE WILL FACE OFF AGAINST MARQUETTE. IN ITS 24TH YEAR, THE TOURNAMENT LAUNCHES THE COLLEGE BASKETBALL SEASON WITH A MARQUEE LINEUP THAT INCLUDES DUKE, ILLINOIS, LSU, OKLAHOMA STATE, ARIZONA STATE AND PRINCETON. THE GAMES WILL BE AVAILABLE ON ALL 27 CHANNELS OF ESPN. ACTUALLY, I THINK THERE ARE ONLY THREE ESPN CHANNELS COVERING THE TOURNAMENT...BUT THAT MEANS ALL 12 TOURNAMENT GAMES WILL BE ON TV.

AND FINALLY, I MENTIONED VOLLEYBALL EARLIER IN THIS SPORTSCAST. WHILE SEABURY HALL AND MOLOKAI HAD MAGICAL YEARS...TAKING IT ALL THE WAY TO STATE FINALS, 2007 IS OVER FOR THE SENIORS.

(vo) SO, THERE WAS ONE MORE MATCH LAST FRIDAY NIGHT AT SEABURY HALL. SENIORS FROM ALL M-I-L TEAMS IN BOTH DIVISION ONE AND DIVISION TWO GATHERED FOR AN EXHIBITION THAT WAS JUST PLAIN FUN. IN THE END IT WAS THE ORANGE TEAM WINNING THE MATCH 25-23, 25-23, 20-25 AND 25-23.

(on-cam) AND THAT'S A LOOK AT SPORTS FOR 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.
