J: PUTTING THEIR FEET AND THEIR MONEY TO WORK, VISITOR INDUSTRY WORKERS RAISE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS FOR CHARITY.

AND HUNDREDS GATHER TO CELEBRATE A TRUE LIVING TREASURE AS HO'OKUPUNA ED LINDSEY IS HONORED BY THE MAUI COUNTY COUNCIL.

(ON-CAM) THOSE ARE OUR TOP STORIES THIS WEEK, AND WE'LL HAVE MORE, PLUS A RUNDOWN OF THE BIGGEST EVENTS COMING TO MAUI THIS WEEKEND IN COMING ATTRACTIONS ON MAUI TV NEWS.

(intro-FF)

Open (CENTER UP)

J: ALOHA EVERYONE, AND WELCOME TO THE SCALED BACK VERSION OF MAUI TV NEWS. I'M JEFF KING. WE'RE STILL OPERATING ON A SKELETON CREW TO TRY TO BRING YOU AS MANY STORIES AS WE CAN - BUT WE'RE STILL WITHOUT SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE MAUI PERSONALITIES AND NEWS REPORTERS WHO CANNOT BE WITH US UNTIL WE ARE ABLE TO INCREASE REVENUE THROUGH ADVERTISING AND SPONSORSHIPS ON MAUI TV NEWS. MORE ON THAT A LITTLE LATER IN THIS NEWSCAST.

(Turn to cam) MEANWHILE, THERE WERE A LOT OF FAVORITE FACES WHEN MORE THAN 12-HUNDRED VISITOR INDUSTRY AND NON-PROFIT WORKERS GOT TOGETHER LAST WEEKEND IN WAILUKU TO WALK, TALK STORY, ENJOY GREAT FOOD AND MUSIC - AND RAISE A GREAT DEAL OF MONEY

(TAKE CHARITY WALK VOSOT) IT WAS A DAY FILLED WITH SUNSHINE AND LAUGHTER, EVEN WHIMSY - THERE WAS HILARIOUS COMEDY, INCREDIBLE FOOD AND JAW-DROPPING MAGIC. BUT AT THE 31ST ANNUAL VISITOR INDUSTRY CHARITY WALK, THE BIGGEST TRICK WAS NO TRICK AT ALL. IT WAS A GREAT NUMBER OF CARING PEOPLE WALKING FORWARD WHILE GIVING BACK.

THE MOOD WAS A LITTLE DIFFERENT THIS YEAR BECAUSE OF HOW HARD THE ECONOMY HAS HIT THE VISITOR INDUSTRY AND THE DOZENS OF MAUI AGENCIES THAT SERVIE PEOPLE IN NEED. THERE ARE FEWER PEOPLE EMPLOYED THAN LAST YEAR AND THERE ARE MORE CHARITIES. THIS YEAR 87 AGENCIES APPLIED FOR GRANTS DISTRIBUTED FROM THE HUGE EVENT.

Carol Reimann, Exec Dir., Maui Hotel and Lodging Association

CR03: Last year we had about 70 so we're hoping to help a lot more people with the money we raise from today's walk."

THE YEAR BEFORE THAT THERE WERE 65 AGENCIES BENEFITTING FROM THE GOOD NATURE OF MAUI'S SERVICE-ORIENTED COMMUNITY. SPEAKING OF GOOD NATURE, COMEDIAN FRANK DELIMA KEPT THE CROWD LAUGHING NOT JUST BEFORE THE EVENT - BUT, AS THE THRONGS HEADED OUT ON THE 5-K COURSE, HE TAGGED RIGHT ALONG...OFFERING ENCOURGEMENT, A COUPLE OF JOKES...EVEN ADVICE IF ANYONE NEEDED A RIDE. (422-2222).

MEANWHILE, BACK AT BASE CAMP, WORKERS PREPRED FOR THE RETURN OF HUNDREDS OF HUNGRY PEOPLE - WHILE ENJOYING GREAT LIVE MUSIC. - AND, IT WAS A CHANCE FOR THE JUDGES TO PERUSE THIS YEAR'S FINALISTS IN THE ANNUAL CHARITY WALK T-SHIRT DESIGN CONTEST.

Lorelle Paros, T-Shirt Judge

LP01: "Well, there's a list of criteria: creativity, originality, the use of the sliupper logo - that's the MHLA logo - visual appeal, the use of the theme - different categories like that."

AS WALKERS STARTED HEADING IN, WE TALKED WITH SOME OF THE AGENCIES WHO WILL BENEFIT FROM THIS YEAR'S EVENT, INCLUDING HABITAT FOR HUMANITY - JUST ONE OF THE CHARITIES IN FLUX DURING THIS ECONOMIC DOWNTURN - AND THEIR FUTURE IS NOT CRYSTAL CLEAR.

Cheryl Pokipala, Habitat for Humanity - Comm Rel Dir.,

CP01: "Well, right now we're still building homes - so it hasn't affected the homes that we've building. It may affect the new homes that we want to start building - where we may be having more applicants that would be applying with us because they haven't been able to qualify for home loans."

EVERY RECIPENT WE SPOKE WITH WAS EXTREMELY GRATEFUL.

Donna Gomes, Ofc Mgr. Hawai'i Canines for Independence - talks about the importance of this event to their organization

DG01: "This year and every year it has been our largest fundraiser. Since we are a non-profit organization, we depend solely on this. Our dogs - our business is that qwe raise and train. But we do not charge our clients - the recipients - for the dog, so all that comes through either grants or fundraising, so this is our biggest fundraiser. We really do appreciate it."

Michelle Pietsch, Supervisor, MFSS - this is her 16th year participating, and hopes to raise 6-8,000 for MFSS

MP01: "Especially under these circumstances this year with the pending cuts to our Healthy Start program - one of our seven programs - every penny means so much to our agency."

WHILE MAGIC WAS HAPPENING UNDER THE KEIKI TENT, AND MAGIC WAS HAPPENING UNDER THE MAIN TENT - THE REAL LIFE MAGIC BECAME CLEARER. ROYAL LAHAINA RESORT RAISED THE MOST MONEY WITH MORE THAN 25,000. THE INDIVIDUAL HERO WQAS MITCH MITCHELL, WHO SINGLE HANDED COLLECTED MORE THAN 10,000 DOLLARS - AND HALE MAKUA, HIS PLEDGED CHARITY, COLLECTED NEARLY 30,000 DOLLARS.

AFTERWARDS WE CAUGHT UP WITH BUSY CAROL REIMANN, WHO SPEARHEADS THIS EFFORT EVERY YEAR TO SEE IF SHE WAS PLEASED

CR01: "Oh we are so pleased with the results of today's walk - 266,000 dollars - over that - we're just so pleased. Of course the money will continue to roll in so we'll have a larger amount. In a couple months we'll make the big announcement of exactly how much we've raised."

CR02: "It's so gratifying to be here today to see these thousands of people here raise money - all for a good cause. All the money that's raised on Maui stays on Maui to benefit local charities."AND SHE SAYS, MAYBE THE ONLY WAY TO MAKE IT BETTER, IS TO TRY AGAIN NEXT YEAR, SO SHE'S ALREADY SET A DATE. MARK YOUR CALENDAR TO BE THERE FOR THE FUN, THE MAGIC, THE FOOD AND THE MUSIC...AND FOR THE SPIRIT OF LAULIMA. IT'LL HAPPEN AGAIN RIGHT HERE ON MAY 15, 2010. REPORTING FROM WAILUKU FOR MAUI TV NEWS, I'M JEFF KING.

(ON-CAM TAG) STATEWIDE THERE WERE 8,235 WALKERS. THAT'S DOWN FROM LAST YEAR'S 91-HUNDRED WALKERS - BUT AGAIN, REMARKABLE CONSIDERING THE NUMBER OF LAYOFFS IN THE VISITOR INDUSTRY IN THE PAST 12 MONTHS. AND THE STATEWIDE TOTAL RAISED WAS ALSO REMARKABLE - 925,000 DOLLARS. THAT'S AN AVERAGE OF 112 DOLLARS RAISED BY EVERY MAN, WOMAN, CHILD - AND ANIMAL - THAT WALKED IN THIS YEAR'S EVENT.

(ED LINDSEY)(PiP-Ed with Leis)

J: MANY OF US WOULD PROBABLY BLUSH AND SHY AWAY FROM BEING PUBLICLY SPOTLIGHTED BY OFFICIALLY BEING CALLED "A BELOVED MAUI TREASURER,' BUT NOT KUPUNA ED LINDSEY. LAST FRIDAY IN THE MAUI COUNTY COUNCIL CHAMBERS, HE PROUDLY ACCEPTED THE ACCOLADES - BECAUSE HE IS WORTHY OF THEM.

(TAKE ED VOSOT) YOU COULD DESCRIBE EDWIN LINDSEY JUNIOR AS ICONIC, UBIQUTOUS, OMNI-PRESENT. BUT ON THIS DAY, ED LINDSEY IS SLOWLY DISAPPEARING BEHIND A SEA OF LEI...AND A TIDAL WAVE OF GOOD WISHES. LAST FRIDAY IN THE MAUI COUNTY COUNCIL CHAMBERS, MORE THAN 200 MEMBERS OF THE ED LINDSEY OHANA, FAN CLUB AND EXTENDED OHANA GATHERED TO LET THEIR VOICES BE HEARD TO MAKE SURE THAT THE MAN - WHOSE TEACHING, GUIDANCE AND LEADERSHIP HAS MEANT SO MUCH TO THEM - KNEW HOW MUCH HE IS APPRECIATED. ED LINDSEY IS WORTHY OF EVERY BIT OF THE PRAISE AND HONOR.

EL01: ""Worthy is a word that you always continue to strive for: to be worthy. Being worthy of a gift that people give you is an example of the fruit of your work. For me, personally, there's always work to be done. I appreciate the acknowledgement that people are begging to see it and hopefully to have been inspired by the work that one humble person can do - by getting and joining other people and getting other people to come in be part of the work. That's what makes things really worthy."

A RESOLUTION WAS READ INTO THE RECORD THAT SAID, IN PART: WHERAS, THE HAWAIIAN PROVERB, OR OLELO NO'EAU, "E 'OPU ALI'I" MEANS "HAVE THE HEART OF A CHIEF" AND IS SAID OF A PERSON HAVING THE KINDNESS, GENEROSITY AND EVEN TEMPERMENT OF A CHIEF; AND WHERAS, E 'OPU ALI'I IS APTLY APPLIED TO EDWIN "ED" LINDSEY, JR., A STEADFAST CHAMPION AND LEADER IN PROTECTING MAUI'S 'AINA AND IT'S IMPORTANT CULTURAL LANDSCAPES...."

HIS CAREERS IN THE AIR FORCE, EDUCATION, CONSERVATION AND RESOURCE PROTECTION HAVE SPANNED MORE THAN A HALF-CENTURY. HIS INSPIRATION HAS LAUNCHED THOUSANDS OF IDEAS, PROGRAMS AND LIFE GOALS FOR COUNTLESS AMONG HIS STUDENTS, FRIENDS AND LIKE-MINDED PEOPLE, BUT IT'S STILL NOT TIME TO REST.

EL02: "Oh, there's plenty more work to be done. There's the water issue. There's the ocean issue. This whole island needs to be mobilized to take care of our natural resources. Everybody should be taking care of our natural resources. Everybody should have the opportunity to plant - to go up in the mountains and see what's up there to take care of and care for endangered species. And we need to address the invasive species that have been gobbling up everything that's been natural. ."///

DOZENS TESTIFIED, INCLUDED EVERY COUNCIL MEMBER, THEN, WITH THE LOVING HELP AND SUPPORT OF HIS FAMILY, ED CHANTED, GAVE THANKS FOR THE MOMENT IN THE SPOTLIGHT, ADMONSIHED ALL WHO WOULD LISTEN THAT THE WORK IS NOT FINISHED, THEN PROUDLY POINTED TO HIS GRANDSON AS THE REASON FOR DOING IT ALL - SO THAT MAUI WILL BE MAUI WHEN HE INTRODUCES HIS GRANDSON.

REPORTING FROM WAILUKU FOR MAUI TV NEWS, I'M JEFF KING.

A-TOSS-B)

J: COMING UP NEXT ON MAUI TV NEWS, THE VIEWS ARE A LITTLE BETTER IN ONE PART OF SOUTH KIHEI - BUT DID IT HAPPEN THE RIGHT WAY? AND IN EAST MAUI, THE VIEWS ARE DEFINITELY BETTER AFTER A MAJOR CLEANUP WAS DEFINITELY DONE THE RIGHT WAY. WE'LL HAVE THOSE STORIES AND MORE WHEN MAUI TV NEWS CONTINUES.

(B BLOCK)
(SAND FENCE (PiP-SAND FENCE)

J: IF YOU'VE DRIVEN DOWN SOUTH KIHEI ROAD NORTH OF THE MAUI LU RESORT, YOU CAN'T HELP BUT NOTICE THAT YOUR VIEW OF THE WATER IS NOW UNINTERRUPTED. THAT PROJECT, STARTED BY THE MAUI COUNTY PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT, WAS DESIGNED TO CUT BACK ON THE HUGE VOLUMES OF SAND THAT BLOWN DOWN AND ACROSS THE ROAD IN STRONG WINDS. THE PROJECT HAS BEEN HALTED BECAUSE THE PROJECT NEEDS A SPECIAL MANAGEMENT AREA PERMIT TO CONTINUE. MEANWHILE, ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF THE MAUI LU, THERE’S A DUNE RESTORATION PROJECT THAT LOOKS LIKE IT COULD ALSO BE THE ANSWER TO THE DUNE SITUATION ON THE NORTH SIDE OF THE RESORT.

(FF-CG-VO) THE MAJOR WINTER STORM OF DECEMBER, 2007, COMPLETELY WASHED OUT THE DUNE AT THE MOUTH OF THE KAONOULU RIVER. SINCE THEN, EROSION AND WIND HAVE KEPT THE DUNES FROM COMING BACK. BUT NOW, THANKS TO A COOPERATIVE EFFORT OF THE KIHEI COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION, KIHEI WAILEA ROTARY AND THE MAUI CANOE CLUB, THE DUNES ARE COMING BACK BEAUTIFULLY. THE DUNE SAND FENCE TRAPS SAND INSTEAD OF LETTING IT BLOW BY. THE SAND ACCUMULATES AND THE DUNES REBUILD GRADUALLY - PROTECTING LIFE AND NATURE'S INFRASTRUCTURE.

(ON-CAM TAG) THE WORK, SO FAR IS BEING DONE BY VOLUNTEERS FROM THE MAUI CANOE CLUB - WITH MATERIALS PROVIDED BY THE KIHEI COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION. THE PROJECT IS UNDER THE DIRECTION OF ZOE NORCROS NU'U. THEY COULD USE YOUR HELP, THOUGH. IF YOU, YOUR CLUB OR SCHOOL GROUP WOULD LIKE TO VOLUNTEER, CONTACT THE KIHEI COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION FOR TIMES AND DATES. FOR THAT INFO, GO TO MAUI TV NEWS-DOT-COM AND FOLLOW THE LINK TO THIS WEEK'S STORIES.

(SOS-HANA CLEANUP)(PiP-BEFORE)

J: IT WAS SUPPOSED TO TAKE A YEAR AND COST A MILLION DOLLARS MORE THAN IT DID. BUT THE CLEANUP OF THE HANA LANDFILL BY SOS METALS ISLAND RECYCLING IS NOW OFFICIALLY COMPLETE. A TOTAL OF 474 TRUCKLOADS OF SCRAP METAL, APPLIANCES, DERELICT VEHICLES AND TIRES WOUND THEIR WAY BACK TO CENTRAL MAUI TO BE CRUSHED AND STORED UNTIL THEY CAN BE SHIPPED OUT. THAT'S A TOTAL OF MORE THAN FIVE MILLION POUNDS. AND IN ALL THOSE TRIPS – TOTALING NEARLY 50,000 MILES, THERE WASN’T A SINGLE ACCIDENT.

(FF-CG-VO) THESE PICTURES CAN BE DESCRIBED AS NOTHING SHORT OF REMARKABLE. THIS IS HOW THE HANA LANDFILL LOOKED AT THE BEGINNING OF THE PROJECT, AND THIS IS HOW IT LOOKS NOW.

(ON-CAM) SOS GENERAL MANAGER BRUZE MIZEL EXPLAINED THAT THE DECOMPOSITION OF THE MATERIALS WAS A CHALLENGE DURING THE SEPARATION AND CLEANUP TASK. HE ESTIMATES THAT BY CLEANING UP THE LANDFILL, SOME 3-POINT-SIX MILLION POUNDS OF GREENHOUSE GAS WON'T BE RELEASED INTO THE ATMOSPHERE. THAT THE EQUIVALENT OF NEARLY 176,00 GALLONS OF GASOLINE NOT BEING BURNED.

(B-TOSS-C)
