J: THE NEW NUMBERS ON VISITOR ARRIVALS ARE IN AND THEY'RE STILL DOWN - BUT THERE ARE MORE AND MORE STATISTICS THAT ARE CAUSE FOR GIVING THANKS.

AND, A GRATEFUL SHANE VICTORINO COMES HOME TO MAUI - AND BRINGS A LOT OF HIS FRIENDS - TO GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY.

THOSE ARE TWO OF OUR TOP STORIES THIS WEEK, PLUS DETAILS ON A UNIQUELY HAWAIIAN WAY TO DECORATE FOR THE HOLIDAYS - AND AN ENCORE PRESENTATION OF "PRACTICING ALOHA."

THOSE STORIES PLUS SPORTS AND COMING ATTRACTIONS ARE ALL AHEAD THIS WEEK ON MAUI TV NEWS.

(intro-FF)

J: ALOHA EVERYONE. HAU'OLI LA HO'OMAIKA'I - HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO YOU ON THIS HOLIDAY EDITION OF MAUI TV NEWS. I'M JEFF KING.

(TURN TO CAM) OVERALL THE DOWNWARD TREND IN VISITOR ARRIVALS TO MAUI REMAIN NEAR THE POST-911 RECESSION. BUT, THE NEWEST STATISTICS REPORTED FOR OCTOBER ARE STARTING TO SHOW MORE OF THE SIGNS THAT ARE CAUSE FOR GIVING THANKS.

(TAKE TOURISM PKG) THERE ARE FEWER PEOPLE VISITING HAWAI'I THAN BEFORE AND THEY'RE SPENDING LESS. THAT'S NOT NEWS. IT'S BEEN GOING THAT WAY FOR A YEAR AND A HALF. BUT WITH THE LATEST STATISTICS COMES THE ENCOURAGEMENT WE NEED. THERE ARE SIGNS THAT ARE CHANGING FROM BLIPS TO TRENDS - AND THNEY'RE TRENDING UP.

SPECIFICALLY, ARRIVALS FROM THE MAINLAND WEST COAST ARE UP TWO AND A HALF PERCENT. THAT'S THE SIXTH STRAIGHT MONTH ARRIVALS HAVE INCREASED FROM THAT KEY MARKET. THE OTHER KEY GROWTH MARKET IS ARRIVALS FROM JAPAN. IN OCTOBER THEY WERE UP 2.6 PERCENT. AND CANADA'S LOVE AFFAIR WITH HAWAI'I CONTINUES WITH A SMALL INCREASE IN VISITORS COMPARED TO LAST YEAR.

THE AMOUNT OF MONEY EACH VISITOR SPENDS IS DOWN BY 5.2 PERCENT. IN OCTOBER THIS YEAR VISITORS SPENT AN AVERAGE OF 179 DOLLARS PER DAY PER PERSON - THAT'S DOWN FROM 185 DOLLARS PER DAY PER VISITOR LAST OCTOBER. NOW WHILE THAT MIGHT NOT SEEM LIKE A LOT, IT IS WHEN YOU MULTIPLY IT BY THE 505 THOUSAND VISITORS WHO CAME TO HAWAI'I IN OCTOBER. THAT'S A DROP OF NEARLY 43 AND A HALF MILLION DOLLARS.

BUT BACK TO THE POSITIVE SIGNS: A GREATER NUMBER CAME TO HAWAII THIS OCTOBER THAN LAST YEAR ON THEIR HONEYMOON. THERE WAS GROWTH FROM ALL KEY MARKETS. AND, HAWAII REMAINS THE NUMBER. AND SPEAKING OF LOYALTY, VISITORS WHO STAYED ON JUST ONE ISLAND DURING THEIR ENTIRE VACATION INCREASED FROM LAST YEAR.

WITH SWINE FLU FEARS BEGINNING TO FADE ON THE MAINLAND AND IN JAPAN AND WITH AIRLINES AND CRUISE SHIPS ADDING MORE CAPACITY, INDUSTRY EXPERTS SAY THERE IS MORE AND MORE SOLID GROUND ON WHICH TO BE OPTIMISTIC.

(ON-CAM TAG) THE ENTIRE REPORT - INCLUDING ISLAND-BY-ISLAND DETAILS IS AVAILABLE FOR YOU TO REVIEW. JUST GO TO MAUI TV NEWS-DOT-COM AND FOLLOW THE LINK TO THIS WEEK'S STORIES.

(SHANE-GOLF)(PiP-shane poster)

J: HE'S A SUPERSTAR IN THE WORLD OF BASEBALL. BUT IN THE PAST MONTH HE'S ALSO ADDED THE TITLES OF GROOM, LOU GEHRIG AWARD WINNER AND THERE'S A SECOND GOLD GLOVE. THIS WEEK THE SECOND SHANE VICTORINO CELEBRITY GOLF CLASSIC BROUGHT VICTORINO BACK HOME IN A CHARITY BENEFIT AND EVERYONE INVOLVED HAD REASON TO GIVE THANKS.

(TAKE SHANE PKG) SATURDAY MORNING THE MAKENA GOLF COURSE WAS ABUZZ WITH EXCITEMENT. SOME OF THE BIGGEST NAMES IN SPORTS, ENTERTAINMENT AND BROADCASTING WERE ON HAND FOR THE SECOND ANNUAL SHANE VICTORINO CELEBRITY GOLF CLASSIC. THERE WERE THE INTERVIEWS AND THE PHOTO OPPORTUNITIES - AND FOR THE MAKENA BEACH AND GOLF RESORT - ALL THAT WAS GOOD FOR BUSINESS.

Bob Boyle, VP/GM Turtle Bay, Regional Operations Director, Benchmark Hospitality International

BB01: "Oh this is great for business. We're so honored that Shane and his family have chosen Makena Beach and Golf again this year for this second annual. What it does for us is that - the last time I talked to you was the day we took over the hotel and that was a mixed emotion day because there were some people that weren't going to be coming back because we didn't have the business levels that we needed. We've got everybody working this weekend. Two weekend ago we had everyone working. So as we build up the business we're able to bring some of the people back - and that's my goal - to get us fully staffed again because that means we're successful. And this weekend has just been spectacular."

SHANE'S MOM, JOYCELYNN VICTORINO WAS PART OF THE ORGANIZING TEAM FOR THE CHARITY EVENT AND THE UNOFFICIAL GOOD-LUCK-WISHER AS EACH TEAM OF CELEBRITY GOLFERS HEADED OUT FOR THE SHOTGUN START. AND - AS YOU MIGHT IMAGINE - SHE'S A LITTLE BIT PROUD OF HER SON.

Joycelynn Victorino, Proud Mom

JV01: "What makes me so proud is Shane realizes the importance of coming back to help those who are less fortunate than him."

SATURDAY NIGHT AFTER THE TOURNAMENT - THE FUN SHIFTED TO THE RESORT BALLROOM WHERE THE SILENT AUCTION ITEMS GENERATED A GREAT DEAL OF BUZZ. AND, - EVEN THOUGH THANKSGIVING WAS NEARLY A WEEK AWAY - THERE WERE LOTS OF GRATEFUL PEOPLE AT THE AWARDS DINNER AND LIVE AUCTION - EMCEED BY ESPN'S SCOTT VAN PELT AND NEIL EVERETT. ESPN SHOWED IT'S GRATITUDE FOR THE FAN EXCITEMENT SHANE GENERATES BY PRODUCING A HIGHLIGHT REEL OF SOME OF HIS FINER MOMENTS. ANOTHER AMONG THE GRATEFUL ONES WAS THE OUTGOING DIRECTOR OF THE HAWAII STATE HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION, KEITH AMEMIYA.

Keith Amemiya, Director, HHSAA

KA01: "Well, it's very touching because Shane was - not too long ago a great high school athlete here on the island of Maui. He played four sports and excelled at all of them. Of course now he's excelling in baseball. He's really making - not only the island of Maui proud but the entire state of Hawai'i proud because of his accomplishments on the field and even off the field - culminating in events like this."

GOLF ANNOUNCER MALK ROLFING DETAILED A CLOSE ENCOUNTER HE HAD WHILE OBSERVING SHANE'S GOLF PROWESS - AND WAS QUICKLY REMINDED THAT WHEN IT COMES TO GOLF - SHANE'S A REMARKABLE BASEBALL STAR.

Mark Rolffing, NBCSports Commentator

MR01: "I went over to the left of the fairway to do a little of my on-course commentary. I got myself in a perfect position - forgetting the fact that I wasn't with Tiger Woods - who I will be with next week. I wasn't with Anthony Kim - who I was with last week. This was Shane Victorino.
Anyway, I'm all set. Shane's on the tee - a mighty swing and the ball heads out low and left and I realize it's coming right at my head and - whoosh - I was able to hold onto the mic - It barely missed me."///

THERE WERE MORE STORIES LIKE THAT ABOUT THE BASEBALL STARS WHO GAVE THEIR TIME AND MONEY FOR CANCER-STRICKEN KIDS. BUT THIS WAS A WORKING VACATION FOR VICTORINO. THIS PAST TUESDAY NIGHT HE WAS AT LAHAINA CANNERY MALL TO MEET FANS AND SIGN A FEW AUTOGRAPHS. BUT WITH THANKSGIVING JUST TWO DAYS AWAY, HE TOLD US WHAT HE WAS GRATEFUL FOR.

Shane Victorino, Busy All-Star

SV01: "Everything. I'm thankful for what God has blessed me with. I'm grateful for the opportunity to come out here and put smiles on people's faces - and the opportunity to come back. Like I said the other day in my interview, I always like to come back to where I was born and raised and see the grassroots of where I came from and see where everything's going and enjoy beautiful Maui."

AND IT WAS CLEAR THAT THE PEOPLE ENJOY SHANE, TOO. SUPERSTARS LIKE SHANE CAN SELL THEIR AUTOGRAPHS FOR HUNDREDS OR THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS - BUT SHJANE DID THESE FOR FREE - FOR HIS UNCLE WHO OWNS HIC SPORTS. AND SHANE'S DAD PUT HIS PRIDE INTO PERSPECTIVE.

Mike Victorino, County Councilmember/Proud Dad

MV01: "Not only proud but just humbled by this whole thing. I love when Shane gives back - but more importantly when the community comes out to be with him because - as he said earlier, still his roots are here and he'll never forget that. And if he has the time and the ability, he'll be here to greet his fans - the people of Maui County."

(ON-CAM TAG) AFTER SPENDING AN ACTUALLY QUIET THANKSGIVING DAY WITH PARENTS MIKE AND JOYCELYNN, SHANE, MELISSA, AND THE KIDS HEAD BACK TO THE MAINLAND FOR WINTER WEIGHT TRAINING, A PHILLIES CRUISE TO THE BAHAMAS IN JANUARY AND THEN ANOTHER MARCH TOWARD ANOTHER TRY FOR THE SERIES.

(PERMACULTURE)(PiP-decorated bush)

J: HOW ABOUT "DECK THE HALLS WITH BOUGHS OF 'OHIA?" WHAT COULD BE MORE HAWAIIAN THAN A CHRISTMAS TREE THAT GREW UP HERE? FOR THE THIRD CONSECUTIVE YEAR, A MAUI BUSINESS IS OFFERING LIVE, POTTED, INDIGENOUS TREE SPECIES BETWEEN 3 AND 10 FEET TALL.

J: TAKING A QUICK LOOK AT SPORTS, IT ALL ENDED AS QUICKLY AS IT BEGAN. BOTH OF MAUI'S ENTRANTS IN THE STATE HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIPS WERE ELIMINATED LAST FRIDAY. IN FRONT OF THE HOMETOWN CROWD THE BALDWIN BEARS FELL TO THE LEILEHUA MULES FROM O'AHU BY A FINAL SCORE OF 48-12.
