J: JUNK. TONS OF IT - ENDING UP IN A JUNKYARD INSTEAD OF THE ROADSIDE. FREE RECYCLING IS A HEAVYWEIGHT HIT.

AND THERE'S ANOTHER CAR YOU'VE SEEN ON THE ROADS A LOT. WE'LL HAVE THE STRIKING MILEAGE REPORT ON THE MAYOR'S HYBRID THIS WEEK.

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

(intro-FF)

Open (CENTER UP)

J: ALOHA EVERYONE, AND WELCOME TO MAUI TV NEWS. I'M JEFF KING. THE AVERAGE "MAUI CRUISER" WEIGHS SOMEWHERE BETWEEN ONE AND A HALF AND TWO TONS. BUT AS WE ALL KNOW, MANY OF THOSE MAUI CRUISERS WIND UP AS YARD ORNAMENTS AND ROADSIDE EYESORES.

(Turn to cam) WELL THIS WEEK THERE ARE HUNDREDS FEWER OF THOSE RUSTY, TOXIC HEAPS ON THEIR WAY TO THE SHREDDER - ALONG WITH THOUSANDS OF POUNDS OF SCRAP METAL.

(TAKE SOS PKG) THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT THE LURE OF THE WORD "FREE" AND THE TOW TRUCK COMPANIES TAKE MAJOR ADVANTAGE OF IT WHEN THE FREE RECYCLING HAPPENS AT SOS METALS ISLAND RECYCLING. LAST WEEK, IT WAS THE PA'IA YOUTH AND CULTURAL CENTER THAT BENEFITS FROM DONATIONS MADE BY PEOPLE AND BUSINESSES DROPPING OFF METALS OF ALL KINDS.

THE PA'IA YOUTH AND CULTURAL CENTER HAS ABOUT 500 MEMBERS - AND THAT NUMBER HAS BEEN CONSISTENT SINCE THEY OPENED IN THE MID 90S. PATRICK MALPASS EXPLAINS THAT A LUNCH AT ISLAND CUISINE IN PA'IA OFFERED MORE THAN JUST A GREAT MEAL. HE MET THE RESTAURANT OWNER'S DAD - WHO HAPPENS TO RUN SOS METALS RECYCLING. THAT'S WHEN THE WHEELS STARTED TURNING THAT LED TO TODAY.

Patrick Malpass, Skate Park Director at PYCC

PM01: "We started working on getting donations for the Youth Center. And it's great. This week it's free for the public to recycle the metals. Then the donations - we're asking the cars for donations when they come in. Today we've got the kids out doing that. and they're cooking food for the people so we're making a little money doing that, so it's great. And it all goes to the youth center as well."

WHILE THE YOUNG SKATERS WHO GAVE UP THEIR SATURDAY FOR THE CAUSE HAMMED IT UP FOR THE CAMWER, BRUCE MIUZELL GAVE US THE FINAL COUNT FOR THE FREE RECYCLING PERIOD...THE NUMBER OF CARS: 235. WE ASKED IF THE LURE OF FREE RECYCLING WAS ENOUGH TO TOP A NORMAL WEEK'S HAUL.

Bruce Mizell, General Manager, SOS Metals Recycling

BM01: "Well, obviously it varies. But 235 is certainly far abour our average for a week, so we're all real pleased. But the bottom line is we want to clean the island up , so every vehicle and every bit of scrap metal we can take in that is properly processed - it's a 'win-win' for everyone."

AT 35-HUNDRED POUNDS PER VEHICLE, THAT COMES TO 822,500 POUNDS OF JUBNK CARS OFF THE ROADASIDES. THEN THERE'S THE SCRAP METAL TURNED IN DURING THE FREE RECYCLING WEEK.

BM02: "The total is right around 552,000 pounds."

THAT COMES TO MORE THAN ONE-POINT-THREE MILLION POUNDS - THAT'S MORE THAN 687 TONS OF JUNK NOT GOING INTO THE LANDFILL. BUT THERE'S ONE MORE SIGNIFICANT NUMBER FOR THE WEEK - THE MONEY DONATED TO THE PA'IA YOUTH CENTER. EACH DONOR WAS QUITE GENEROUS, AND IT ADDED UP.

BM03: "We took in on the average of 16 dollars and 47 cents as an average donation, and that came out to a total of 2,421 dollars that we're able to give to the Pa'ia Youth and Cultural Center."

(ON-CAM TAG) SOS METALS GENERAL MANAGER BRUZE MIZELL PROMISES TO GIVE US THE WORD ON WHEN THE NEXT FREE RECYCLING EVENT IS COMING UP AND , AS SOON AS WE KNOW, WE'LL LET YOU KNOW ABOUT IT.

(Mayor's Mileage) (PiP-Mayor Plugging In)

J: ONE CAR YOU'VE UNDOUBTEDLY SEEN BUZZING AROUND THE ISLAND A LOT LATELY IS THE SNAPPY TOYOTA PRIUS WITH THE GREEN LIGHTNING BOLT ON IT. YES, THAT'S THE HONORABLE CHARMAINE TAVARES BEHIND THE WHEEL.

(take vo) WE FIRST SHOWED YOU THE PLUG-IN-HYBRID ELECTRIC CAR WHEN THE MAYOR UNVEILED IT ON APRIL SIXTH OF THIS YEAR. AND THE REASON WE KNOWN YOU MUST HAVE SEEN HER IS BECAUSE SHE DRIVES THIS CAR A LOT! AND, BEING A TEST CASE FOR FUTURE TRANSPORTATION OPTIONS, SHE HAS TO KEEP METICULOUS RECORDS. AND EVEN IF SHE DOESN'T - THE CAR COLLECTS THE DATA AND SENDS IT TO THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY.

(ON-CAM) THE DATA FOR HER USE OF THE CAR FOR THE MONTH OF APRIL ALONE WERE RELEASED BY THE COUNTY THIS WEEK - AND THEY'RE IMPRESSIVE.

(FF-CG-VO) BETWEEN APRIL SIXTH AND THE 30TH, THE MAYOR DROVE ELEVEN HUNDRED AND SEVENTY-FIVE MILES. SHE LOGGED 132 TRIPS AND CHARGED THE BATTERY 53 TIMES. THE AVERAGE MILEAGE: 64 MILES TO THE GALLON. NOW, UNLIKE CONVENTIONAL ENGINES, WHERE HIGHWAY DRIVING YIELDS BETTER MILEAGE, IN A HYBRID ELECTRIC, CITY DRIVING IS WHERE THE NUMBERS GO UP. THE PRIUS GOT AS MUCH AS 97 MILES TO THE GALLON IN CITY DRIVING, AND A LOW OF 40 MILES TO THE GALLON IN HIGHWAY DRIVING.

(ON-CAM) THE ROLLING EDUCATIONAL TOOL - NOT TO MENTION CONVENIENT METHOD OF GETTING FROM POINT A TO POINT B - IS HIGHLY COST EFFECTIVE, EVEN BY MAUI GAS PRICE STANDARDS. THE MAYOR SPENT 86 DOLLARS AND 86 CENTS TO TRAVEL THOSE ELEVEN HUNDRED AND SEVENTY-FIVE MILES. FORTY-SIX DOLLARS AND 59 CENTS FOR UNLEADED GAS AND 40 DOLLARS AND 27 CENTS FOR ELECTRICITY. FOR COMPARISON, THE AVERAGE SIX-CYLINDER CONVENTIONAL GASOLINE-ONLY CAR ON MAUI, DRIVEN THE SAME DISTANCE, WOULD HAVE COST MORE THAN 206 DOLLARS JUST FOR THE GAS.

(A-TOSS-B)

J: UP NEXT ON MAUI TV NEWS, THE WEATHER'S BEEN BEAUTIFUL - BUT A LITTLE RAIN WOULD BE NICE. UP NEXT, JUST HOW DRY IT WAS LAST MONTH - AND HOW THE COUNTY'S WATER SUPPLY IS HOLDING UP. PLUS, WE'LL TAKE YOU TO THE OPENING OF ART MAUI - AND SHOW YOU HOW THE ARTISTIC FUTURE OF SOME OF MAUI'S YOUNGER ARTISTS JUST GOT A LOT BRIGHTER. ALL THAT WHEN WE COME BACK.

(B-BLOCK)

(RAIN TOTALS, WATER USE)(PiP - Water Drop)

J: I'M NOT SURE HOW THE MATH WORKS OUT ON THIS - BUT, ACCORDING TO THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MORE THAN HALF OF THE RAIN GAGES IN MAUI COUNTY RECEIVED LESS THAN HALF OF WHAT WOULD BE CONSIDERED "NORMAL" RAINFALL LAST MONTH.

(FF-CG-VO) NO MATTER HOW YOU ADD IT UP, THAT'S DRY. BUT TWO WAVES OF KONA SHOWERS DID BOOST THE TOTALS FOR KULA AND FOR KIHEI IN MAY. EVERYWHERE ELSE WAS PRETTY CLOSE TO BONE DRY - WITH ONLY ONE HUNDREDTH OF AN INCH OF RAIN ALL MONTH AT KAHULUI AIRPORT.

(CON'T FF-CG-VO) BUT WHILE PEOPLE STILL NEED WATER, AS A COMMUNITY, THE PEOPLE OF MAUI ARE USING WATER MUCH MORE WISELY THAN THIS TIME LAST YEAR. ONLY HANA USED MORE WATER ON A DAILY BASIS.

(ON-CAM) WATER DIRECTOR JEFFREY ENG CALLED THE CUSTOMER DEMAND "REASONABLE," AND GAVE NO HINT OF ANY KIND OF USAGE CUTBACK, EITHER VOLUNTARY OR MANDATORY. THE DEPARTMENT OF WATER SUPPLY, HOWEVER, HAS BEEN PUMPING UP AN AVERAGE OF ONE-POINT-SEVEN MILLION GALLONS A DAY FROM THE KAMOLE WIER TREATMENT FACILITY TO LOWER KULA, TO EASE THE LOAD ON THE PI'IHOLO RESERVOIR.

(ART MAUI)(PiP - ART MAUI)

J: FOR MORE THAN THREE DECADES, THE SCHAEFER GALLERY AT THE MAUI ARTS AND CULTURAL HAS BECOME THE CENTER OF MAUI'S ART WORLD ONCE A YEAR. ART MAUI 2009 OPENED TO THE PUBLIC THIS SUNDAY AND RUNS THROUGH JULY FIFTH.

(TAKE ART MAUI PKG) IT'S HAPPENED 30 TIMES BEFORE, YET IT NEVER GETS OLD. THE 2009 VERSION OF ART MAUI OPENED SUNDAY - BUT SATURDAY MAUI TV NEWS WAS THERE FOR THE ARTISTS RECEPTION. IF YOU HAVEN'T BEEN YET - REST ASSURED THE EXHIBIT IS OPEN WHILE THE MAUI ARTS AND CULTURAL CENTER UNDERGOES REMODELING OF THE GROUNDS. THERE'S A LOT TO TAKE IN - SOME POLITICAL, LOTS OF IT VERY COLORFUL AND FUN - AND A GREAT DEAL OF EXTRAORDINARY WORK, LIKE THESE KOA CREATIONS - AND THIS STUNNING WATER BOTTLE.
WILLIAM AND SALLY WOOSTER'S CREATION "IPU WAI," IS AMONG THE CENTERPIECE CREATIONS. THEWRE'S QUITE A BIT OF BUZZ ABOUT IT, BUT IT HASN'T WON ANY AWARDS - AT LEAST NOT YET.

William Worcester, Artist

WW01: "Well it hasn't won anything, but the state is buying it for it's permanent collection. And it's been picked for the flyers for next year's show."

CO-PRODUCER SALLY WOOSTER IS STILL IN SHOCK THEIR PIECE HAS RECEIVED SUCH ATTENTION.

SW01: "Oh, when they told us - oh even right now when I'm telling you this I've got chicken skin. It was wonderful."

THE WOOSTERS ARE DEDICATED ARTISTS - THEY'VE MADE VARIATIONS OF THIS SCULPTURE BEFORE, IN FACT A FEW OF THEM.

WW02: "Probably 30.

AND WHAT MAKES THIS ONE SPECIAL?

WW02B: "Well it's the largest which is difficult to do, especially in glass. And it just worked."

THERE AWERE A LOT OF PEWOPLE FOR THE ARTISTS REECEPTION SATURDAY - ONE OF THEM WAS BALDWIN HIGH SCHOOL ART TEACHER JANET SATO, WHO GAVE US HER OPINION OF THE 2009 EXHIBITION.

Janet Sato, Art Instructor, Baldwin HS

JS01: "Well, the first thing when you first walk in it's difficult to take it all in. What I like best is seeing the works you're familiar with - the people you know - and you admire and respect their work. Then I love seeing all the new things that you've never seen before. I've gone around once, twice now and I love it. There's lots to see."

AND YOU'LL EVEN SEE THE FACE OF MAUI NEWS PHOTOGRAPHER...WHOSE USUALLY ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE PICTURE MAKING. THREE DECADES AND IT'S AS FRESH AS EVER.

THERE ARE A NUMBER OF SPECIAL EVENTS CONNECTED TO THIS YEAR'S ART MAUI EXHIBITION. FOR DETAILS, GO TO MAUI TV NEWS DOT COM AND FOLLOW THE LINK TO THIS WEEK'S STORIES OR THE LINK TO COMING ATTRACTIONS.

MEANWHILE, SOME OF MAUI'S YOUNG ARTISTS GOT A BOOST TO THEIR BUDDING CAREERS THIS WEEK AS A BALDWIN HIGH SCHOLL ALUMNA GAVE BACK TO THE ART PROGRAM THAT GAVE HER HER START.

LANAKILA KELLIHER GRADUATED IN 1996, THEN WENT ON TO GET HER BACHELOR OF FINE ARTS DEGREE FROM U-H MANOA. BORN AND RAISED ON MAUI, KELLIHER WANTED TO GIVE BACK TO THE ISLAND THAT INSPIRED HER - AND THE SCHOOL THAT INSPIRED HER, SO THIS WEEK SHE DID.

(FF-CG-VO) LAST WEEK AT BALDWIN HIGH, KELLIHER PRESENTED A 500 ART SCHOLARSHIP CHECK TO TIONILYN ACAIN AND TWO TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY-DOLLAR SCHOLARSHIPS, ONE TO TO JESSICA GARCIA AND ONE TO CHENTELL STIRITZ. THAT'S ART TEACHER JANET SATO PROUDLY STANDING BY.

(ON-CAM TAG) AND MISS SATO'S ART STUDENTS AT BALDWIN HAVE DONE QUITE WELL OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS. IN EACH OF THE LAST TWO YEARS, HER STUDENTS HAVE PLACED IN THE TOP THREE STATEWIDE IN THE CONGRESSIONAL ART CONTEST.
