(intro-FF)

Open (TWO SHOT)

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. OFFICIALLY, EARTH DAY IN THE U.S. WAS TUESDAY. BUT THERE HAVE BEEN EARTH DAY CAMPAIGNS ACROSS THE STATE FOR MORE THAN A WEEK, AND THERE ARE MORE TO COME.

(Turn to cam) EARTH DAY CELEBRATIONS IN MAUI COUNTY INCLUDED FRIDAY'S EARTH DAY CELEBRATION ON MOLOKA'I. THE CROWD OF MORE THAN A THOUSAND WAS THE LARGEST IN THE 16 YEARS EARTH DAY HAS BEEN CELEBRATED ON THE FRIENDLY ISLE. ON SATURDAY, THE MAUI NUI BOTANICAL GARDENS' EARTH DAY CELEBRATION ALSO DREW LARGE CROWDS,

(vo) ON SUNDAY, MORE THAN 900 TOOK ADVANTAGE OF FREE OCEAN DISCOVERY CRUISES FOR KAMAAINA OFFERED BY PACIFIC WHALE FOUNDATION OUT OF MA'ALAEA HARBOR.

BUT IT WAS THE SUNDAY EARTH DAY CELEBRATION AT BALDWIN BEACH THAT DREW THE THRONGS. THE ALL-DAY EVENT FEATURED MUSIC, POETRY AND DRAMATIC READINGS AND - LATE SUNDAY AFTERNOON, A HELICOPTER MADE SEVERAL PASSES BY THE CROWD AS PICTURES WERE SNAPPED TO SEND A MESSAGE TO CONGRESS TO CUT CARBON EMISSIONS BY 50 PERCENT BY THE YEAR 20-20.

(on-cam) ONE NUMBER A LOT OF PEOPLE SAW SUNDAY WAS 3-50. IT WAS DISPLAYED TO RAISE AWARENESS FOR A NEW ENVIRONMENTAL CAMPAIGN CALL PROJECT 350. SCIENTISTS SAY THAT 350 PARTS PER MILLION IS THE MAXIMUM AMOUNT OF CARBON DIOXIDE THE EARTH CAN HANDLE. ANY MORE THAN THAT, AND - THEY SAY - IRREVERSIBLE DAMAGE BEGINS. FOR MORE INFORMATION ON PROJECT 350, VISIT MAUI TV NEWS - DOT-COM AND FOLLOW THE LINK TO THIS WEEK'S STORIES.

(HERITAGE PARK)(PiP-LimeKilnBeach)

JK: THAT STRETCH OF BEACH IS ALWAYS THAT CROWDED - AND WHEN IT ISN'T - IT'S ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL STRETCHES OF WHITE SAND IN ALL OF HAWAII. AND THERE'S A MOVE AFOOT TO KEEP IT THAT WAY FOREVER.

(Take Heritage Park Pkg)

Lance Holter, Park Advocate

LH01: "We're here at Ka Puka Ulua, the hole of the Ulua. This is Kapukaulua beach along the windward side of Baldwin beach one of the finest stretches of white sand in all of Hawaii."

IT'S ALSO PROPOSED AS THE PATSY MINK NORTH SHORE HERITAGE PARK.

LH02: "It's been a bill before Congress for the last four years. It's now on the general - the GPAC Regional Park Plan. It's in the Community Plan as Open Space and Park And it's mine and hundreds of thousands of other people's signatures on a petitions. They want this to become a 130-acre regional park."

LH03: "Everybody knows this area as Baldwin Park. That's an area of land that's leased by the County of Maui from Alexander and Baldwin for a dollar a year. This idea of a regional park - it's an idea that's come as a grass roots effort from the public from a need to preserve the last great open space on the north shore of Maui."

THE IDEA, AS YOU MIGHT IMAGINE, TO BE PROTECT THE REGION FROM DEVELOPMENT SO THINGS LIKE THE MONTANA BEACH CONDOMINIUM DEBACLE OF THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS THAT HAS COST THE COUNTY MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN LEGAL FEES AND SETTLEMENTS. BUT HOLTER WOULD LIKE TO SEE EVEN MORE HAPPEN HERE AT PATSY MINK PARK.

LH04: "My idea is to restore it to it's original state. Plant native plants. Establish education centers. Restore fish in abundance so it can be like it was in ancient times."

THE ISSUE GETS A LITTLE COMPLICATED WHEN TRYING TO DECIDE WHO WOULD BE IN CHARGE OF MAINTAINING PATSY MINK REGIONAL PARK. PLUS, THERE ARE ALREADY DEVELOPED PORTIONS OF THE PROPOSED AREA.

LH05: "Which would be all the way from Spreckelsville, the turnout, all the way to the Pa'ia Youth center, with the exception of the Bhuddist Temple, and all the lands already developed as golf course."

THERE ARE IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS WHEN IT COMES TO JURISDICTION, ACCORDING TO HOLTER. A COMMUNITY PARK WOULD KEEP CONTROL LOCAL. A STATE PARK WOULD MEAN MORE PRESERVATION ENFORCEMENT RESOURCES WOULD BE AVAILABLE. A NATIONAL PARK EVEN MORE PROTECTIONS. BUT, DURING HER VISIT TO MAUI LAST WEEK, CONGRESSWOMAN MAZIE HIRONO EXPLAINED THAT THE ROUTE TO FEDERAL SUPPORT COULD TAKE THE LONGEST.

MH01: "Only if it comes under the National Park Service or the Forestry Service. It would have to come under one of those in order for the federal government to get involved."

BUT BEYOND EVEN THAT IS THE CULTURAL VALUE OF THIS AMAZINGLY HISTORICAL SPOT.

LH06: "Back in 1739 this was the site of a huge battle between the competing sons of King Kekaulike. Chief King Kekaulike sons were divided and this was the site of a battle that raged three years with thousands and thousands of warriors."

HISTORY, ALMOST INDESCRIBABLE BEAUTY, AWE-INSPIRING VIEWS. BUT - AS MONTANA BEACH SHOWED, DEVELOPMENT IS A TECHNICAL POSSIBILITY. HOLTER BELIEVES THE COUNTY COUNCIL SHOULD ADOPT A FORMAL RESOLUTION TO ENDORSE THE REGIONAL PARK PLAN. AND SOON. AMONG THOSE BEHIND THAT IDEA IS MAUI MAYOR CHARMAINE TAVARES. BUT SHE'S PROBABLY NOT THE ONLY ONE.

LH07: "I'm sure if you asked any one on this great passtime that we call 'hangin' out on the beach, I'm sure every one of them would say the same thing....keep it a park."

(on-cam tag) TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE PROPOSED PROJECT, VISIT OUR WEBSITE AT MAUITVNEWS- DOT-COM AND FOLLOW THE LINK TO THIS WEEK'S STORIES.

(Community Work Day) (PiP-Community Work Day/Adopt sign)

JY: THIS YEAR, ACROSS HAWAII, THE FOCUS ON CLEANING UP OUR LAND AND SEA EXTENDS BEYOND JUST A DAY OR TWO DURING EARTH DAY CELEBRATIONS. YOU MAY HAVE ALREADY SEEN THE PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT WE HAVE BEEN RUNNING ON MAUI TV NEWS SPONSORED BY THE KEEP AMERICA BEAUTIFUL CAMPAIGN.

(vo) IN IT, A MAN CONSUMES A VARIETY OF UNPLEASANT ITEMS THAT MOST SENSIBLE PEOPLE WOULD THROW AWAY. BUT DO WE REALLY? THE MESSAGE: WHAT WE DO TO OUR ENVIRONMENT, WE DO TO OURSELVES.

(ON-CAM) THERE'S PLENTY MORE THAT WE CAN ALL DO BESIDES RECYCLING. AND THIS WEEKEND IS A GREAT TIME FOR YOU TO GET INVOLVED. IT'S CALLED THE "KEEP THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS BEAUTIFUL" PROJECT, COORDINATED BY MAUI COMMUNITY WORK DAY FOUNDER JAN DAPITAN. THERE ARE SEVERAL LOCAL EFFORTS BEING COORDINATED BY SERVICE GROUPS LIKE THE ROTARY CLUBS OF MAUI,

((ff-cg-vo)) AND THERE ARE LARGER PROJECTS LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS ACROSS MAUI COUNTY LIKE THE PAINT EXCHANGE AT COMMUNITY WORK DAY HEADQUARTERS IN THE OLD PU'UNENE SCHOOL. AND THERE WILL BE ORGANIZED REEF CLEANUPS, WHERE CERTIFIED DIVERS CAN VOLUNTEER TO HELP REMOVE TRASH FROM THE SEA.

(ON-CAM) COMMUNITY WORK DAY IS A QUARTERLY EFFORT TO REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF GARBAGE CARELESSLY DISCARDED ACROSS OUR ISLANDS - BUT THIS WEEKEND'S EFFORT IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST OF THE YEAR. TO GET INVOLVED VISIT MAUI TV NEWS DOT COM AND CLICK ON THE LINK TO THIS WEEK'S STORIES.


TOSS TO B BLOCK

J: UP NEXT ON MAUI TV NEWS, IF YOU SAW THAT HUGE, BRIGHTLY COLORED CUSTOM MOTOR HOME ON MAUI LAST WEEKEND - THAT'S A GOOD THING. BUT FOR THOSE WHO SAW INSIDE IT, IT WAS A GREAT THING. WE'LL HAVE DETAILS WHEN WE COME BACK.

JY: CONGRESSWOMAN MAZIE HIRONO WAS BACK ON MAUI AGAIN THIS WEEKEND. WE'LL TAKE YOU UPCOUNTRY TO LEARN WHAT SHE HOPES TO ACCOMPLISH FOR OUR KEIKI.

J: AND WE'LL HAVE AN UPDATE ON WHEN THE PI'ILANI HIGHWAY BETWEEN KAUPO AND KIPAHULU IS EXPECTED TO OPEN AGAIN. THAT AND MORE WHEN MAUI TV NEWS CONTINUES.

B BLOCK

(Project Vision)) (PiP - PV Bus)

JY: IT'S AS BIG AS THE BIGGEST TOUR BUS - AND BRIGHT RED. THE PROJECT VISION MOBILE RETINA SCREENING UNIT CAME TO MAUI THIS WEEK ON THE HAWAII SUPERFERRY.

(ff-cg-vo) THE MOBILE UNIT, EQUIPPED WITH SPECIALIZED INSTRUMENTS AND STAFFED BY TECHNICIANS, ARRIVED FRIDAY ON THE ALAKAI TO TAKE PART IN THIS WEEKEND'S "DA KIDNEY DA KINE" DAY AT QUEEN KA'AHUMANU CENTER ON SATURDAY. MAUI TV NEWS GOT A LOOK INSIDE THE STATE-OF-THE-ART ROLLING LAB.

(take Project Vision VO/SOT) PARKED INFRONT OF QUEEN KA'AHUMANU CENTER SATURDAY WAS THE 200-THOUSAND DOLLAR ROLLING DIGITAL LABORATORY.

Clifton Otto, MD, Ophthalmologist

CO01: "The purpose of the bus is - first people fill out some paperwork, then they come inside where their eyes get used to the dark. Then we take some digital pictures of the inside of the eye."

CO02: "This is specialized state-of-the-art technology that some ophthalmologists might have, but that's limited to the office setting. What we did was adapt the bus so that it could handle the camera. And we can take pictures right there without using any dialiting drops. We get very high qulaity images that we then take back to the clinit. Then we evaluate those and send the patients a report."

ONE OF THE KEY COMPONENTS OF THE PROJECT VISION MOBILE RETINA SCANNER IS THE "MOBILE" PART. WHILE A MAJOR COMPONENT OF THEIR MISSION IS TO SERVE UNINSURED AND UNDERINSURED PEOPLE IN HAWAII - THE LARGER MISSION IS TO SERVE EVERYBODY.

CO03: "Exactly. We can see anybody. We have people who have insurance but havmn't been to an eye doctor in five years. We're also ecologically friendly because w ebring the screening to them. They don't have top drive all over the place to see different doctors. We get the screening done quickly and then get them to a doctor if they need to."

DOCTOR OTTO CALLED THE TRIP TO MAUI "A TEST DRIVE" AND LABELLED IT A SUCCESS. HE WAS ALSO IMPRESSED WITH THE RIDE OVER ON THE ALAKAI.

CO04: "One thing I enjoyed was sitting on the back of the boat. There's a section on the back with beautiful chairs where you can siut and watch the horizon and that was really a spectacular view, so that's what I would recommend."


(on-cam) THE FREE HEALTH SCREENING IS DESIGNED TO BRING PREVENTIVE OPTIONS TO PEOPLE WHO MIGHT OTHERWISE GO THROUGH LIFE WITH UNTREATED CONDITIONS. DOCTOR OTTO TOLD MAUI TV NEWS THAT NINETY-SIX PEOPLE TOOK ADVANTAGE OF THE FREE EYE EXAM AND AT LEAST TWO OF THOSE PEOPLE HAD CONDITIONS THEY DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THAT - UNDETECTED - COULD HAVE LED TO BLINDNESS. PROJECT VISION ORGANIZERS SAY THEY HOPE TO BRING THEIR MOBILE UNIT TO MAUI UP TO FOUR TIMES A YEAR, TO BE ABLE TO REACH ALL PARTS OF THE ISLAND.

(eARLY eDUCATION) (PiP-Mazie)

J: ALSO MAKING AN EXTREMELY BUSY - BUT BRIEF - VISIT TO MAUI THIS WEEKEND WAS U.S. REPRESENTATIVE MAZIE HIRONO. IN ADDITION TO MAKING TWO STOPS ON SUNDAY AT EARTH DAY EVENTS IN KAHULUI AND IN PAIA, SHE HELD TWO "CONGRESS ON YOUR CORNER" MEETINGS IN UPCOUNTRY MAUI.

(Take VO/SOT) THE SMALLER OF THE GATHERINGS WAS AT THE MAKAWAO SCHOOL SUNDAY AFTERNOON WHEN A GROUP OF HER CONSTITUENTS GOT TO ASK THE CONGRESSWOMAN ABOUT HER PRIORITIES. BRINGING HOME THE TROOPS FROM IRAQ IS A MAJOR ONE. AND HERE ON THE HOMEFRONT, MS HIRONO IS FOCUSING ON EDUCATION, AND SHE SAID SEES GOOD THINGS AHEAD FOR DEVELOPMENT OF THE EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION BLOCK DEVELOPMENT GRANT.

Mazie Hirono, U.S. Representative, 2nd District, Hawaii

MH01: "There is growing support because there is growing recognition that quality early education really sets the stage for a child's success, not only in school but in terms of being able t earn more money, having a much more stable life. Even fewer run-ins with the law. So there are all kinds of objective studies that say that for every dollar we spend in early childhood education, we get that dollar back in multiples.///"

CONGRESSWOMAN HIRONO IS STRONGLY PUSHING HER BILL TO GET MORE MONEY START KIDS IN SCHOOL EARLY - AND SHE SAYS HER AUDIENCE IS WIDER THAN JUST ELECTED OFFICIALS.

MH02: "I chaired a hearing in the Education and Labor Committee in the House of Representatives and much of the testimony came from large corporations who see the benefit of Early Childhood Education, so that's good and I'm glad that I have a bill that I introduced that will hopefully be passed this session."

(on-cam) BOTH OF HAWAII'S U.S. CONGRESSIONAL SEATS ARE UP FOR GRABS THIS FALL AS THE CURRENT TERMS OF CONGRESSMAN NEIL ABERCROMBIE AND MAZIE HIRONO EXPIRE THIS YEAR.

(Rock Blessing (PiP-Blessing)

JY: THE FOURTH AND - HOPEFULLY - FINAL PHASE OF REPAIRS TO THE PI'ILANI HIGHWAY BETWEEN KAUPO AND KIPAHULU UIS NOW UNDERWAY.

((ff-vo-cg)) LAST FRIDAY MEMBERS OF BOTH COMMUNITIES JOINED IN A BLESSING BY KAHU CHARLES MAXWELL TO KEEP WORKERS SAFE AS THEY SCALE THE CLIFFS TO MITIGATE THE FALLING ROCK HAZARDS STILL THERE AFTER THE OCTOBER, 2006, EARTHQUAKES.

(on-cam) MAYOR CHARMAINE TAVARES THANKED THE RESIDENTS THERE FOR ENDURING THE PERIODS OF COMPLETE ISOLATION THAT FOLLOWED THE QUAKES, PLUS THE RELATIVE ISOLATION CAUSED BY THE CLOSURE OF THE HIGHWAY BETWEEN KIPAHULU AND CENTRAL MAUI. WORK CREWS WILL SPEND THE NEXT SIX MONTHS REMOVING DANGEROUS OVERHANGING ROCKS IN THE ROADSIDE CLIFFS ABOVE KALEPA AND ALELELE.

IF EVERYTHING WRAPS UP ON SCHEDULE IN OCTOBER, THE HIGHWAY IS EXPECTED TO REOPEN ALMOST EXACTLY TWO YEARS AFTER THE 2006 QUAKES.

(Photo contest) (PiP-Volunteer)

J: NEXT WEEK IS "NATIONAL VOLUNTEER WEEK," ON MAUI AND ACROSS THE NATION. THE MAUI COUNTY VOLUNTEER CENTER IS SPONSORING A PHOTO CONTEST TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE MANY THOUSANDS OF VOLUNTEERS IN OUR COUNTY AND THE COUNTLESS BENEFITS THEY PROVIDE TO THEIR FAMILIES, FRIENDS, NEIGHBORHOODS AND COMMUNITIES.

THE CONTEST THEME IS "VOLUNTEER TO CHANGE THE WORLD," AND THEY'RE LOOKING FOR IMAGES THAT INSPIRE VOLUNTEERISM. YOUR PHOTOS MUST BE SUBMITTED TO THE COUNTY OF MAUI VOLUNTEER CENTER BY MAY 19TH. WINNING ENTRIES WILL BE CONSIDERED FOR VOLUNTEER PUBLICATIONS AND WILL BE SUBMITTED TO THE MAUI NEWS FOR PUBLICATION CONSIDERATION. FOR ALL THE DETAILS ON THE PHOTO CONTEST, GOT TO MAUI TV NEWS DOT COM AND CLICK ON THE LINK TO THIS WEEK'S STORIES.


(Toss to C Block)

JY: UP NEXT IN SPORTS, THE TWO-GAME SEASON ENDER WE ALL LOOKED FORWARD TO IN M-I-L BASEBALL TURNED OUT TO BE A THREE-GAME SET. KALAPANA HAS HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE BIG FINISH UP NEXT IN SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS.

J: THEN, HOLLY CHUNG JOINS US WITH INFORMATION ON EVERYTHING FROM TARO PLANTING TO ISRAELI FOLK DANCING IN COMING ATTRACTIONS WHEN MAUI TV NEWS CONTINUES.


(sports) (PiP-Sports)

K: (Looking very serious) PREVIOUSLY...ON MAUI TV NEWS. (Edit in clip of "big game ends the season between Maui and Baldwin.....") EAHN! (OR SIMILAR "INCORRECT" BUZZER VOCAL)

WELL, NOT EXACTLY "EAHN." WE WERE TWO-THIRDS RIGHT!

ALOHA EVERYONE AND WELCOME TO SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS. I'M KALAPANA.

GOING INTO THE LAST WEEKEND OF THE MAUI INTERSCHOLASTIC LEAGUE SEASON, MAUI HIGH AND BALDWIN WERE TIED AT NINE AND ONE. WHEN THEY MET LAST FRIDAY NIGHT, THE BEARS EDGED THE SABERS 3-1. SATURDAY NIGHT, RATHER THAN QUIETLY GOING AWAY - THE SABERS ROARED BACK TO BEAT THE BEARS, SEVEN TO FIVE.

THAT LEFT THEM BOTH ATOP THE DIVISION ONE STANDINGS AND 10 AND TWO AND THAT MEANT A ONE-GAME PLAYOFF WOULD DECIDE THE REGULAR SEASON M-I-L TITLE AND A BERTH IN THE STATE PLAYOFFS.

WE WERE GOING TO BRING YOU HIGHLIGHTS OF AT LEAST ONE OF THOSE FIRST TWO GAMES - BUT INSTEAD OUR CREW RACED DOWN TO MAEHARA TO CAPTURE THE HIGHLIGHTS OF MONDAY'S WINNER-TAKE-ALL SHOWDOWN. UNFORTUNATELY OUR CREW OBEYED ALL SPEED LIMITS AND TRAFFIC SIGNALS - AND ARRIVED AFTER THE GAME'S MAJOR MOMENT - A GRAND SLAM BY MAUI HIGH'S JORDAN INAMASU IN THE TOP OF THE SECOND INNING.

(take vo) THAT PUT THE SABERS WAY AHEAD EARLY IN THIS ONE. AND THEY WERE RED HOT ON DEFENSE, TOO. AS BALDWIN'S NATHAN CLARK TAKES A LEAD AT FIRST, THAT'S MITCH CRIM ON THE MOUND FOR MAUI HIGH. AND WATCH HIM TAKE A PEEK. THEN- LIKE A LIGHT SABER BLOW - GOTCHA! CRIM PICKS OFF THE BEAR AND GETS SOME WELL-EARNED ATTA-BOYS. MUCH TO THE DELIGHT OF THE LARGE SABER TURNOUT.

BACK ON OFFENSE, TRAVIS MANUEL'S SACRIFICE BUNT ADVANCES JOSH GASCON DOWN TO SECOND. THAT BRINGS PETER IBANEZ TO THE PLATE. THE VERY FIRST PITCH AND IT'S A DEEP ONE TO RIGHT CENTER FIELD - SCORING GASCON AND PUTTING IBANEZ ON SECOND. JORDAN AGCAOILI'S HOT BASE HIT THROUGH THE RIGHT SIDE ADVANCES IBANEZ TO THIRD WHERE HE'S ALMOST TAGGED OUT BY BALDWIN'S KAULANA CHING. HE'S SAFE AND THE MAUI HIGH CROWD IS INTO IT!

THERE ARE PLENTY OF BEARS FANS ON HAND, TOO, AND THEY'VE GOT "COMEBACK" ON THEIR MINDS! JARIN HAYASE TAGS THIS BUNT A LITTLE HIGH, THOUGH AND EVEN THOUGH HE'S A ROCKET - EVEN A FACE-FIRST SLIDE ISN'T QUICK ENOUGH. LATER IN THE INNING SKYLER CABACUNGAN IS ON FIRST FOR THE BEARS AND DECIDES HE SHOULD BE ON SECOND - BUT INAMASU DISAGREES AND FIRES A PERFECT THROW TO AGCAOILI TO GET THE OUT AND END THE INNING. BY NOW YOU KINDA' HAD A FEELING HOW THIS WAS GONNA' END.

AND IF YOU DIDN'T BY THEN, THEN THIS HELPED. SABER PITCHER MITCH CRIM AT THE PLATE AND LOFTS THIS ONE THAT GETS LOST IN THE LIGHTS. AS THE BEARS - AND OUR CAMERA LOOKED FOR IT YES, FRIENDS, THAT'S AN INSIDE-THE-PARK HOME RUN. THE CROWD GOES WILD AND THE SCORE GOES UP...SIX ZIP IN THE TOP OF THE FIFTH. RED HOT JORDAN INAMASU FIRES A ROCKET UP THE MIDDLE FOR A BASE HIT. PRESSING HIS LUCK TO TRY TO STEAL SECOND? YES. HAYASE TAGS HIM OUT.

BOTTOM OF THE FOURTH NOW AND BALDWIN FINALLY GETS ON THE BOARD WHEN KAINALU GARSO'S BLOOP SINGLE JUST OUT THE SHORTSTOP'S REACH SCORES JORDAN NEGRINI.

IT WAS A RUGGED NIGHT FOR BALDWIN'S PITCHER BROCK SHISHIDO AS THIS KNUCKLE BALL GOES ALMOST STRAIGHT UP! BUT HE GETS HIS CONTROL BACK AS HE GETS SABER TRAVIS MANUEL TO FLY OUT TO CENTER FIELD.

THE BALDWIN FAITHFUL NEVER GAVE UP ON THEIR BEARS AND THE BEARS DIDN'T GIVE UP ON THIS ONE. WATCH THE HEADS UP PLAY OF THIRD BASEMAN KAULANA CHING AS HE CHASES THIS FOUL BALL FOR THE OUT. BACK ON OFFENSE, JORDAN NEGRINI GETS A HOLD OF THIS ONE AND SENDS IT TO THE WALL FOR A STAND-UP DOUBLE. BUT THE BEARS FAIL TO SCORE IN THE FIFTH.

TOP OF THE SIXTH AND THE SABERS CONTINUE TO HIT THE LONG BALL AS MITCH CRIM'S BLAST BRINGS HIM AROUND FOR HIS SECOND DOUBLE OF THE EVENING. AFTER STEALING THIRD, CRIM SCORES WHEN INAMASU FIRES A GROUNDER PAST SHORTSTOP. BALDWIN FINALLY ENDS THE INNING BUT WITH A NINE TO ONE LEAD, THE BEARS WERE LOOKING A LITTLE SOMBER FOR THEIR LAST AT BAT.

WITH TWO OUTS AND ONE MAN ON, GABE KAHO'OHANOHANO'S GROUNDER TO SECOND ENDS THE INNING, SEALS THE DEAL AND OFFICIALLY MAKES THE MAUI HIGH SABERS YOUR 2008 M-I-L DIVISION ONE CHAMPS WITH THE FINAL SCORE OF NINE TO ONE. GREAT SPORTSMANSHIP CAPPED A GREAT GAME IN A GREAT SEASON!

(on-cam) THIS WEEK THE SEASON TOURNAMENT WILL DECIDE THE TOURNAMENT CHAMPIONS. SAINT ANTHONY'S CLINCHED THE D-TWO TITLE LAST FRIDAY WITH THEIR WIN OVER MOLOKA'I. THE DIVISION TWO WINNER WILL BE DECIDED TOMORROW NIGHT, AND THE D-ONE FINAL IS SATURDAY NIGHT AT MAEHARA. THE STATE TOURNAMENT WILL BE HELD AT LES MURAKAMI STADIUM ON O'AHU MAY SEVENTH THROUGH THE 10TH.

AND THAT'S A LOOK AT SPORTS FOR THIS WEEK. BE SURE TO LET US KNOW IF YOUR TEAM HAS A SEASON OR SPECIAL SPORTING EVENT COMING UP. SEND YOUR NOTICES TO SPORTS AT MAUITVNEWS-DOT-COM. WE'LL DO OUR VERY BEST TO GET A CREW OUT TO CAPTURE THE ACTION. FOR MAUI TV NEWS I'M KALAPANA. NOW HERE'S HOLLY CHUNG WITH COMING ATTRACTIONS.
