(VO) GOVERNOR LINDA LINGLE ADDRESSED A GATHERING IN FRONT OF THE HISTORIC IAO THEATER IN WAILUKU LAST MONTH, THEN SIGNED HOUSE BILL 1756 - LEGISLATION THAT REMOVES A 15-YEAR LIMIT ON COUNTY LEASES TO NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS. MAUI COUNTY COUNCILMEMBER JOANNE JOHNSON SAYS THAT THE NEW BILL PROMOTES HOME RULE BY GRANTING EACH COUNTY COUNCIL GREATER AUTHORITY OVER THE USE OF COUNTY PROPERTY. OF COURSE THIS IS GREAT NEWS TO NON-PROFITS ACROSS THE STATE...AND THAT INCLUDES A LONG LIST ON MAUI.

K: FOR THE EIGHTH STRAIGHT YEAR, THE BALDWIN LADY BEARS HAVE WON THE MAUI INTERSCHOLASTIC LEAGUE TRACK AND FIELD TITLE.  AND THIS PAST WEEKEND THEY DID IT AGAIN - DARE I SAY IT? - "RUNNING AWAY."

(VO) IN RECORD-SETTING FASHION SATURDAY NIGHT AT THE YAMAMOTO TRACK AND FIELD FACILITY IN WAILUKU, SENIOR JUNE-ANN LUSK MADE IT LOOK EASY AS SHE LED THE BALDWIN GIRLS WITH THREE MEET RECORDS OF HER OWN IN THE ONE-HUNDRED-METER HURDLES, THREE-HUNDRED METER HURDLES AND THE FOUR-BY-ONE HUNDRED METER RELAY.

A GOOD-SIZED CROWD WAS ON HAND AS KING KEKAULIKE'S  JESSE HENDERSON LED FROM START TO FINISH IN THE BOY'S FOUR HUNDRED METERS WITH A WINNING TIME OF FIFTY-POINT-SIX-TWO SECONDS.   WHILE THE BALDWIN GIRLS WERE IN THE SPOTLIGHT MOST OF THE NIGHT, IT WAS ALSO A GREAT EVENING FOR THE BALDWIN BOYS - ESPECIALLY JUNIOR JOEY AMASCUA WHO TOOK THE BOYS EIGHT HUNDRED IN JUST A FRACTION OVER TWO MINUTES, AND SET AN M-I-L RECORD IN THE BOYS' FIFTEEN HUNDRED METERS WITH A TIME OF FOUR MINUTES, THIRTEEN-POINT-SIX-NINE SECONDS. IN THE POLE VAULT, BALDWIN'S JOHN-MICHAEL DELIMA CLEARED THIRTEEN FEET, BUT WAS EDGED OUT ON ATTEMPTS BY BILLY PACHECO OF SAINT ANTHONY'S.

(FF-CG) THE NIGHT BELONGED TO BALDWIN AS THE BOYS RACKED UP AN IMPRESSIVE TWO-HUNDRED AND TWO POINTS, WITH KAMEHAMEHA MAUI IN SECOND AND LAHAINALUNA IN THIRD. FOR THE LADIES, JUNE-ANN LUSK'S RECORD-SETTING PERFORMANCES HELPED THE BALDWIN GIRLS OUTDISTANCE THE REST, LEADING THE MEET WITH ONE HUNDRED SIXTY-EIGHT POINTS. KING KEKAULIKE CAME IN SECOND AND THE MAUI HIGH LADY SABRES CAME IN THIRD. UP NEXT: THE STATE COMES TO MAUI FOR THE HAWAII HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION TRACK AND FIELD CHAMPIONSHIPS MAY EIGHTEENTH AND NINETEENTH AT THE WAR MEMORIAL STADIUM.

L. (ON-CAM)
MEANWHILE, ACROSS THE ISLAND LAST WEEK, THE BALDWIN LADIES WERE COOL IN THE POOL, BUT IT WAS LAHAINALUNA THAT SPARKLED IN THE MOONLIGHT AS THE LUNAS CLAIMED THE M-I-L CHAMPIONSHIP IN LADIES WATER POLO.

(VO) KIHEI AQUATIC CENTER WAS THE SITE OF COMPETITION - WHICH WAS DOMINATED EARLY BY THE LADY LUNAS. EIGHT DIFFERENT ATHLETES SCORED FOR LAHAINALUNA, INCLUDING FOUR GOALS EACH FROM MARIAH GILL, MOANA TUIPULOTU AND HAILEY GILL. IN FACT, IN WASN'T UNTIL THE THIRD PERIOD THAT THE LADY BEARS SAW THEIR FIRST SCORE. THE LEAGUE WIN IS THE SECOND FOR THE LADY LUNAS AND CAPS THEIR SECOND UNDEFEATED SEASON. NEXT UP, THE STATE LADIES WATER POLO TOURNAMENT ON OAHU THIS WEEKEND. WE'LL HAVE RESULTS FOR YOU ON OUR NEXT EDITION OF SPORTS! ON MAUI TV NEWS.

N. (LOCATION PIP-L)(CG: JULIE Y COMING ATTRACTIONS)

J: ALOHA EVERYONE AND WELCOME TO "COMING ATTRACTIONS" ON MAUI TV NEWS. I'M JULIE “Y” WITH THIS WEEK'S RUNDOWN OF COMING EVENTS FROM HERE ON LOCATION AT THE MAUI ARTS AND CULTURAL CENTER, MAUI'S PREMIERE SHOWCASE PLACE. THERE'S PLENTY TO SEE AND DO ON MAUI - WHETHER YOU'RE A VISITOR OR KAMA'AINA.

IF YOU'RE A MUSIC FAN, WE'VE GOT IT HOT, COOL AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN. AND SINCE WE'RE DESCRIBING THINGS IN "THREES," NOTHING SAYS IT BETTER THAN "EARTH, WIND AND FIRE." THE LEGENDARY R&B BAND TAKES TO THE OPEN AIR STAGE OF THE A & B AMPHITHEATER HERE AT THE MACC ON SUNDAY, MAY TWENTIETH FOR ONE SHOW AT 7 P.M. GATES OPEN AT 6 P.M. "SHINING STAR," "AFTER THE LOVE IS GONE," "GETAWAY"...THEY'RE ALL ON THE PLAYLIST FOR THIS SHOW. EARTH WIND AND FIRE CONTINUES TO DELIVER THE AMAZINGLY TIGHT PERFORMANCES AND LUSH ARRANGEMENTS THAT MADE THEM ONE OF THE MAJOR SUPERGOUPS OF THE 70S AND 80S. TICKETS ARE PRICED FROM 55 TO 85 DOLLARS. GET ALL THE DETAILS AT MAUITVNEWS.COM - SLASH - COMING ATTRACTIONS.

THAT TAKES CARE OF "HOT." FOR "COOL," IT'S FOUR-TIME GRAMMY WINNER RANDY BRECKER AND A TRULY-ALL-STAR BAND, FEATURING BASSIST TONY LEVIN, GUITARIST JOE CARO, STEVE FERRONE ON DRUMS AND ADA ROVATTI, THE RENOWNED ITALIAN TENOR SAXOPHONIST. RANDY BRECKER HAS BEEN AMONG THE DRIVING FORCES MAKING JAZZ FUSION A WIDESPREAD ART FORM. HIS SHOW, "RANDY BRECKER: A NEW YORK MINUTE," COMES TO THE CASTLE THEATER ON FRIDAY, MAY 11TH AT 7:30 P.M. TICKET PRICES, A SEATING CHART AND A LINK TO RANDY'S WEB SITE CAN BE FOUND THROUGH OUR WEBSITE AT MAUITVNEWS.COM - SLASH - COMING ATTRACTIONS.

AND FOR THE "EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN" PART - THAT VERY SAME NIGHT HERE AT THE MACC, IT'S AN EVENING OF CELTIC RHYTHM AND DANCE, COMPLETE WITH THOSE DRIVING FIDDLE SOLOS THAT ADD TO THE UNMISTAKABLE SOUND. MAUI CELTIC PRESENTS ALASDAIR FRASER AND NATALIE HAAS IN THE CASTLE THEATER AT 7:30 P.M. ON FRIDAY, MAY ELEVENTH.

WHEN IT COMES TO ENTERTAINMENT, GREAT MUSIC, AND A CHANCE TO BE WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY...THERE'S PROBABLY JUST ONE THOUGHT THAT CAN MAKE THE WHOLE THING BETTER...THAT'S IF IT'S ALL FREE! IN THIS CASE IT IS. THE ANNUAL MAUI WAENA INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL BAND CONCERT IS COMING TO THE CASTLE THEATER HERE AT THE MACC ON TUESDAY, MAY FIFTEENTH AT 6-30 P.M.

BUT - AS THEY SAY - WAIT! THERE'S MORE! ANOTHER FREE CONCERT WILL BE PUT ON WHEN THE ANNUAL KALAMA INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL BAND CONCERT TAKES TO THE STAGE AT THE CASTLE THEATER AT 6:30 P.M. ON TUESDAY, MAY TWENTY-NINTH. THE SERIES CONTINUES TWO DAYS LATER WHEN THE ANNUAL IAO INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL BAND CONCERT PERFORMS AT THE CASTLE THEATER AT 6:30 P.M. ON THURSDAY, MAY THIRTY-FIRST. SEATING IS ON A FIRST-COME, FIRST SERVED BASIS.

AFTER THE MUSIC, GET SET TO LAUGH. FRANK DE LIMA, ONE OF HAWAII'S MOST BELOVED COMEDIANS, BRINGS HIS ZANY PARODIES, PERSONALITIES AND CAST OF CHARACTERS TO THE MCCOY STUDIO THEATER AT 7-30 P.M. FRIDAY AND SATURDAY, MAY 18TH AND 19TH. TICKETS ARE 28 DOLLARS IN ADVANCE, 34 DOLLARS AT THE DOOR.

(TWO-SHOT)

C: AND FINALLY THIS WEEK, AS WE WRAP PRODUCTION ON OUR VERY FIRST EPISODE OF MAUI TV NEWS, WE WANT YOU TO KNOW WHAT WE’RE ABOUT AND WHAT WE’D LIKE FROM YOU - OUR VIEWERS.


J: MAUI TV NEWS HAS BEEN YEARS IN THE MAKING. OUR EXPERIENCE WITH THE UNIVERSITY OF HAWAII FOUNDATION AND MAUI COMMUNITY COLLEGE LED US TO COVER SOME FASCINATING STORIES ABOUT AND AROUND MAUI COUNTY. WE’VE MADE SOME GREAT FRIENDS ALONG THE WAY, AND WE’VE BUILT A TEAM OF NEWS PROFESSIONALS WHO KNOW THESE ISLANDS. AMONG OUR GOALS IS ACCURACY, FAIRNESS AND UNBIASED REPORTING OF THE EVENTS AND STORIES THAT MATTER TO MAUI COUNTY. AFTER THAT, IT’S OUR JOB TO LET YOU BE THE JUDGE AS TO WHAT THOSE STORIES MEAN TO YOU.


C: ALONG THE WAY, WHILE OUR NEWSCAST MAY APPEAR TO BE LIKE THOSE FROM HONOLULU’S BROADCASTERS, THE BIG DIFFERENCE IS THAT OURS IS ALL ABOUT MAUI COUNTY. WE STRIVE TO BE AS SENSITIVE AS WE CAN POSSIBLY BE TO THE PEOPLE, PLACES AND THE CULTURE OF MAUI. AND THAT CARRIES THROUGH TO HOW WE REPORT THE NEWS. FOR EXAMPLE, IF A STORY INVOLVES THE SHORELINES AROUND MAKENA, THE AREA KNOWN AS “BIG BEACH,” WE WILL REFER TO THE AREA BY ITS ORIGINAL HAWAIIAN NAME, “ONELOA,” A BEAUTIFUL - AND APPROPRIATE NAME - THAT MEANS LONG SANDS. THE SPECTACULAR, YET THREATENED SHORELINE REGION NOW KNOWN TO MANY AS LA PEROUSE WILL ALSO BE REFERRED TO BY ITS ORIGINAL NAME, KEONIOIO. AND EVEN THOUGH MOST PEOPLE THESE DAYS REFER TO THEM AS “THE WEST MAUI MOUNTAINS,” MAUI TV NEWS WILL MOST OFTEN REFER TO THE MOUNTAIN RANGE BY ITS ORIGINAL HAWAIIAN NAME, “KAHALAWAI.”

J: ONE HO’OPONO KUPUNA ADVISED US, SAYING “MAUI TV NEWS WILL ONLY SERVE THE PEOPLE PROPERLY...IF YOU ARE WORTHY.” THAT IS OUR GOAL. “TO BE WORTHY TO SERVE THE PEOPLE.” TO THAT END, WE ARE RELYING ON YOU, THE PEOPLE WATCHING THIS PROGRAM - EITHER ON TELEVISION ACROSS THE STATE OF HAWAII, OR ACROSS THE WORLD ON MAUITVNEWS.COM. TELL US WHAT’S IMPORTANT TO YOU. TELL US IF YOU THINK WE’RE OBJECTIVELY REPORTING THE FACTS, OR IF YOU THINK WE’RE MISSING THE POINT OR LEAVING SOMETHING OUT. TELL US WHAT’S COMING UP ON YOUR ISLAND, IN YOUR AHA MOKU, ON YOUR BLOCK, AT YOUR SCHOOL. WE INVITE YOU TO VISIT OUR WEB SITE AT MAUITVNEWS.COM. THERE ARE MANY LINKS THROUGH WHICH YOU CAN CONTACT US AND LET US KNOW WHAT’S ON YOUR MIND.


C: THAT’S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE FOR THIS WEEK’S EDITION OF MAUI TV NEWS. THANK YOU FOR WATCHING. WE’LL SEE YOU NEXT TIME.


J: ALOHA.
