J:J: THE VALLEY ISLE PLAYED HOST TO TWO GOVERNORS IN ONE DAY LAST FRIDAY WHEN CHIEF EXECUTIVES FROM HAWAII AND FROM ILOCOS NORTE IN THE PHILLIPINES COME TO CALL.

AND, "HAPPY NEW YEAR?" THE FIRST DAY OF FISCAL YEAR 2010 SEES RATE HIKES AT THE PUMP, IN THE TRASH AND DOWN THE DRAIN.

(ON-CAM) THOSE ARE TWO OF OUR TOP STORIES THIS WEEK, AND WE HAVE MORE, PLUS DETAILS ABOUT THIS WEEKEND'S PATRIOTIC PYROTECHNICS AND BLUES UNDER THE STARS. IT'S ALL AHEAD THIS WEEK ON MAUI TV NEWS.

(intro-FF)

J: ALOHA EVERYONE, AND WELCOME TO ANOTHER SCALED-BACK EDITION OF MAUI TV NEWS. I'M JEFF KING. IT'S GETTING TOUGHER AND TOUGHER ALL THE TIME TO AVOID CLICHÉS WHEN DESCRIBING OUR CURRENT ECONOMIC PLIGHT.

(Turn to cam) "IT'S ALWAYS DARKEST BEFORE THE DAWN." "SHARED SACRIFICE." "THIS, TOO SHALL PASS." THE FACT IS, THOSE ARE ALL TRUE...BUT, JUST BY THE TURNING OF A PAGE ON THE CALENDAR, IT'S A LITTLE TOUGH TO TAKE IT ALL IN STRIDE RIGHT NOW.

WITH WEDNESDAY CAME THE FIRST DAY OF FISCAL YEAR 2010. AND WITH THAT CAME A SERIES OF RATE, FEE AND TAX INCREASES THAT, WHEN SINGLED OUT, DON'T SEEM ALL THAT DEVASTATING. BUT, WHEN ADDED TOGETHER, REMIND US THAT THERE IS STILL QUITE A BIT OF “DARKNESS” BEFORE THAT “DAWN.”

(FF-CG-VO) AS OF WEDNESDAY, JULY FIRST, WATER RATES FOR COUNTY RESIDENTS INCREASED BY EIGHT AND A HALF PERCENT. SEWER RATES ALSO INCREASED WITH THE NEW FISCAL, GOING UP BY AN AVERAGE OF TWO PERCENT. AND TRASH RATES ALSO INCREASED WITH THE NEW FISCAL YEAR. ON MAUI AND MOLOKA'I, THE MONTHLY RATE JUMPS FROM 14 TO 18 DOLLARS. ON THE ISLAND OF LANA'UI, THE MONTHLY RATES JUMPED FROM SEVEN TO NINE DOLLARS A MONTH - AN INMCREASE OF ALMOST 30 PERCENT. THE NEW TRASH RATES WILL BE RELECTED IN THE SEMI-ANNUAL BILLS THAT YOU CAN EXPECT IN YOUR MAILBOX IN ABOUT TWO WEEKS FROM NOW.

(VETOES)(PiP-LINGLE AT mtvn MIC)

J: FEES, RATES AND TAXES WERE THE FOCUS OF GOVERNOR LINDA LINGLE'S DECISION-MAKING PROCESS AS SHE PREPARED HER LIST OF NEWLY-PASSED LEGISLATION IN HAWAII THAT SHE PLANS TO VETO. ON TUESDAY THE GOVERNOR RELEASED A LIST OF 65 BILLS SHE INTENDS TO AXE, ESPECIALLY THOSE THAT DIRECTLY IMPACT THE PUBLIC WITH EVEN MORE ADDED FEES AND TAXES, OR THOSE THAT RISK RUNNING AFOUL OF THE STATE CONSTITUTION. LAST FRIDAY, GOVERNOR LINGLE WAS ON MAUI TO PRESIDE OVER THE INSTALLATION OF NEW OFFICERS FOR THE MAUI CHAMBER OF COMMERCE.

(TAKE LINGLE FURLOUGH/VETO VO-SOT) THE FIRST ORDER OF BUSINESS AT LAST FRIDAY'S CHAMBER OF COMMERCE INSTALLATION LUNCHEON WAS TO INTRODUCE THE BOARD THAT WILL DIRECT THE CHAMBER'S BUSINESS AS THEY BEGIN THEIR 99TH YEAR OF EXISTENCE ON MAUI. BUT THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM, SO TO SPEAK, WAS THE STATE OF HAWAII'S ECONOMY AND - EVEN MORE SPECIFICALLY - GOVERNOR LINDA LINGLE'S PLAN TO FURLOUGH STATE WORKERS TO HELP BALANCE THE BUDGET. THE GOVERNOR EXPLAINED THAT LAYING OFF SOME 15,000 STATE WORKERS HAS BEEN, and remains to be, AN OPTION - BUT NOT ONE SHE WANTS TO HAPPEN.

Linda Lingle, Governor, State of Hawai'i

LL01: " It's just a difficult situation - something we don't want to have to face which is why we came up with the idea of furloughs in the first place. Because it's temporary and we believe the economic downturn is temporary. So we want a temporary solution to a temporary and not something as drastic as laying people off."///

AS IT TURNS OUT, PEOPLE WON'T BE FURLOUGHED RIGHT AWAY, SO THE DRASTIC MEASURES MAY BE UNAVOIDABLE. THIS WEEK A JUDGE IN HONOLULU RULED THAT THE GOVERNOR CANNOT UNILATERALLY LAY OFF STATE WORKERS. THE CUTS IN HOURS AND RESULTING EFFECT ON PAYCHECKS IS A PLAN THAT CAN ONLY BE THE RESULT OF COLLECTIVE BARGAINING. THAT UNION NEGOTIATION PROCESS COULD JEOPARDIZE THOUSANDS OF JOBS, LEAVING THE GOVERNOR STUCK BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE. THE ROCK BEING UNION CONTRACTS THAT WON'T ALLOW THE PROBLEM TO BE SPREAD EVENLY AMONG MEMBERS. THE HARD PLACE: THE HAWAII STATE CONSTITUTION THAT REQUIRES A BALANCED BUDGET. SOMETHING'S GOTTA GIVE, AND THE GOVERNOR BELIEVES THE FURLOUGH PLAN IS WORTH FIGHTING FOR, SO SHE PLANS TO STICK WITH IT.

LL02: "Yes, because the Council on Revenues meets four times a year, as they change their projections and as the economy starts to grow again we want to scale these furloughs back as quickly as we can. It's not our goal to see how many days a furlough we can get from an employee. We just, by Constitution, have to have a balanced budget. But I want to move as quickly as I can to try to get it reduced to two, to one and to eventually get it back to normal as quickly as we can. I think it's important to remind people that the furlough is affecting everyone in the Executive Branch, so that means me and the Lieutenant Governor - our entire cabinet. It's big pay cuts for everybody. For myself it's $18,000. For members of my cabinet it's $15,000 and on down where everyone is losing a lot of money. I don't want to do that and the way to stop that is to get the economy on track. That means keeping our taxes low. That means government being very respopnsive to the business communitY. That's the only way to get things turned around - which means heavily promoting the tourism industry."///

GOVERNOR LINGLE HAD SHARP WORDS FOR THE MAUI COUNTY COUNCIL THAT VOTED THIS YEAR TO CUT SPENDING ON THE PROMOTION OF THE WORLD'S FAVORITE ISLAND. AND, EARLIER THIS WEEK THE HAWAII TOURISM AUTHORITY VOTED TO SPEND AN ADDITIONAL 3-POINT-FOUR MILLION DOLLARS TO PROMOTE HAWAII VACATIONS TO PEOPLE ON THE MAINLAND AS WELL AS AURTRALIA AND JAPAN. AND THE GOVERNOR'S FIRST OF 65 VETOES TO LEGISLATION PASSED BYTHE 2009 LEGISLATURE MADE HEADLINES THIS WEEK WHEN SHE BLOCKED THE MOVE TO ADD GENERAL EXCISE TAX TO INTERNET PRUCHASES MADE FROM HAWAII VENDORS. AND WITH JUST ONE DOWN AND 64 TO GO, THIS COULD BE A LONG HOT SUMMER.

(on-cam) FOR THE COMPLETE LIST OF PENDING BILLS THE GOVERNOR PLANS TO VETO - AS WELL AS HER REASONS WHY, GO TO MAUI TV NEWS DOT COM AND FOLLOW THE LINK TO THIS WEEK'S STORIES.

(MARCOS-KEON)(PiP-MARCOS-KEON AT MIC)

J: GOVERNOR LINGLE WAS THE FIRST OF TWO GOVERNORS TO VISIT MAUI LAST FRIDAY. IN A FORMAL SETTING FRIDAY MORNING AT THE MAUI COUNTY COUNCIL CHAMBERS, GOVERNOR MICHAEL MARCOS-KEON AND A DELEGATION FROM ILOCOS NORTE WERE OFFICIALLY WELCOMED TO MAUI.

(VO) BUT FRIDAY EVENING, IN THE PAINA BUILDING ON THE MAUI COMMUNITY COLLEGE CAMPUS, THE ATMOSPHERE WAS A LOT MORE RELAXED AS THE GOVERNOR INTRODUCED EACH OF THE 26 ELECTED OFFICIALS WHO JOINED HIM FOR THE VISIT TO MAUI.

(TAKE MARCOS-KEON VO-SOT) GOVERNOR KEON ALSO INTRODUCED 96 YEAR-OLD RICHARD CALDITO WHO, IN 1956, BECAME WAS THE FIRST FILIPINO EVER ELECTED TO MAUI COUNTY GOVERNMENT WHEN HE WAS NAMED TO THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS. THE ROOM WAS PACKED WITH FORMER RESIDENTS OF THE ILOCOS NORTE AS WELL AS THEIR DESCENDANTS WHO HAVE NEVER EVEN SEEN THEIR HOMELAND. GOVERNOR KEON COMMENTED ON THE EVIDENT AND VERY STRONG CONNECTION THESE MAUIANS HAVE WITH THE NATION OF THEIR ANCESTORS.

Michael Marcos-Keon, Gov., Ilocos Norte, the Phillipines.

MMK01: "It really makes me proud to be an Ilocano - that people have gone away from home to seek greener pastures, but at the same time they keep their links to their province and they keep their culture intact. As I said when I was speaking, I am glad that Hawai'i is a melting pot, but at the same time we need to keep our cultural identity, just like the indigenous people of Hawai'i have done, so that's important."///

(ON-CAM) IT'S ESTIMATED THAT OF THE 240-THOUSAND FILIPINOS IN HAWAII, BETWEEN 150-THOUSAND AND 175-THOUSAND ARE ILOCANO. ON MAUI, THAT NUMBER IS SOMEWHERE BETWEEN 25 AND 30-THOUSAND.

(TOSS TO B BLOCK)

J: UP NEXT ON MAUI TV NEWS, FOR THEM IT'S AN EXCUSE TO COME TO MAUI FOR SEVERAL WEEKS EVERY YEAR TO PLAY. FOR US, IT'S THE OPPORTUNITY TO HEAR THE BEAUTIFUL MUSIC THEY PLAY. AND, AT A TIME WHEN BUDGET CUTBACKS ARE EVERYWHERE, MAUI GRADE SCHOOL STUDENTS WILL BENEFIT FROM NEW FEDERAL FUNDING FOR PHYSICAL EDUCATION. THOSE STORES AND MORE WHEN MAUI TV NEWS CONTINUES.

BLUE NOTE)(PiP-SAX PLAYER)

J: REMEMBER THE MUSIC YOUR FOLKS USED TO LISTEN TO WHEN YOU WERE LITTLE? IT WAS BACK IN THE DAYS WHEN THEY STILL PLAYED MUSIC ON AM RADIO, ORCHESTRAS PLAYED ARRANGEMENTS AND THERE WERE NO BEAT BOXES OR SYNTHESIZERS. WELL, THERE'S A COLLEGE IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA THAT'S TEACHING JAZZ, BIG BAND AND THE SO-CALLED STANDARDS. AND EVERY YEAR THE BLUE NOTE SWING ORCHESTRA MAKES A PILGRIMAGE TO MAUI TO SHOW OFF THEIR IMPRESSIVE SKILLS AND TALENT.

(TAKE BLUE NOTE PKG) QUIZ TIME: WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE? RIGHT. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING IS WRONG WITH IT. HOW ABOUT THE MUSIC, WHAT'S WRONG THERE? IF YOU ANSWERED NOTHING AGAIN, YOU'RE TWO FOR TWO. THE SETTING IS THE PACIFIC TERRACE ATOP THE WAILEA BEACH MARRIOTT RESORT AND SPA AND THE MUSIC IS FROM THE BLUE NOTE ORCHESTRA. A GROUP OF EXTREMELY TALENTED STUDENTS FROM CITRUS COLLEGE IN CALIFORNIA. FOR THE PAST 12 YEARS, ROBERT SLACK HAS BEEN BRINGING HIS YOUNG PROTEGES TO MAUI TO LEARN AS WELL AS TO ENTERTAIN - BY PLAYING THE STANDARDS FROM THE 30S AND 40S...NOT REGGAE, OR JAWAIIAN, OR ROCK. BUT IF REGGAE IS SELLING BIG ON I-TUNES, THEN WHY TEACH TOMORROW'S PROMISING MUSZIC STARS YESTERDAY'S STYLE?

Robert Slack, Dean of Fine and Performing Arts Citrus College, CA

RS01: "Well, you know, it really has a heritage of great jazz and great style and students really need to listen to it. It's certainly a part of Broadway and show music. Michael Buble is big right now and there are many other things. It's a wonderful style to teach students."

AND IT'S A WONDERFUL STYLE TO LISTEN TO, SING ALONG WITH...OR, TO TRIP THE LIGHT FANTASTIC LIKE NANCY AND DAVID FAIRCLOUGH DO. THIS CONCERT LAST WEEK WAS A BENEFIT FOR THE CHILDREN'S MIRACLE NETWORK OF KAPIOLANI HOSPITAL. THE SETTING WAS INTIMATE, THE WEATHER WAS PERFECT AND, FOR THESE CITRUS COLLEGE MUSIC STUDENTS, CLASS IS IN SESSION.

RS03: "It really puts the students on the road for three or four weeks at a time. We usually go to Japan before this part of our tour - but we didn't do that this year. But it really gives them the experience of performing every day and every night - like a road musician, albeit even though it's a much more beautiful spot than even I got to work in when I was touring."///

THE FACT THAT IT'S ALL HAPPENING ON THE WORLD'S FAVORITE ISLAND IS JUST ONE OF THE PERKS OF THE BIZ.

Bill Countryman, GM. Wailea Beach Marriott Resort and Spa

BC01: "Why Wailea Marriott? Just take a look behind me. Sunsets. Maui is no ka oi, 14 years in a row in Conde Nast. It's just a special place."

AND SPECIAL OPPORTUNITIES LIKE THIS MAUI CONCERT TOUR STOP PREPARES THESE STUDENTS FOR WHAT'S NEXT FOR AFTER THEY GRADUATE - OR EVEN BEFORE - AND WHAT'S OUT THERE FOR THEM MAY SURPRISE YOU

RS02: "We have kids working on Carnaval Crusie Lines. We have kids touring with major artists. We have a student right now who is on Broadway, first trumpet for Billy Eliott. And we have another young man who went through our propgram, both in instrumental and in our audio program and he's the lead sound designer for Cirque du Soleil in Tokyo right now."

THEY SAY MUSIC SOOTHES THE SAVAGE BEAST - WHICH MIGHT EXPLAIN THE CHESHIRE GRIN ON THE NEW MOON OVER THE MARRIOTT. IT'S JUST ONE OF THOSE MAGICAL MAUI EXPERIENCES THAT MAKE THAT NEVER-ENDING LIST OF THINGS THAT MAKE MAUI NO KA OI...EVEN LONGER.

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

(ON-CAM TAG) YOU CAN CATCH THE BLUE NOTE ORCHESTRA AT THE HYATT REGENCY BALLROOM IN KA'ANAPALI THROUGH NEXT FRIDAY. AND, A LITTLE LATER ON THIS WEEK'S EDITION OF MAUI TV NEWS, WE'LL BRING YOU MORE OF THE SWEET SOUNDS OF THE BLUE NOTE ORCHESTRA.

(P.E. FUNDING)(PiP-KIDS IN P.E. CLASS)

J: KINDERGARTEN THROUGH FIFTH GRADE IS A TIME WHEN A CHILD'S ENTIRE FUTURE CAN BE MOLDED BY DEVELOPING GOOD STUDY HABITS. IT'S ALSO A CRUCIAL TIME TO DEVELOP GOOD PHYSICAL HABITS THAT CAN LEAD TO A MAINTAINING A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE.

IT'S NOT THE CHILD'S FAULT THAT THE GROWNUPS RUNNING THINGS HAVE TO CUT BUDGETS FOR THINGS LIKE PHYSICAL EDUCATION, BUT THE KIDS ARE THE ONES WHO SUFFER. THIS WEEK - THANKS TO THE EFFORTS OF OUR CONGRESSWOMAN - ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENTS ON MAUI CAN STILL LOOK FORWARD TO THE BENEFITS OF PHYSICAL EDUCATION.

CONGRESSWOMAN MAZIE K.HIRONO ANNOUNCED THAT THE MAUI FAMILY Y-M-C-A WILL RECEIVE NEARLY 377 THOUSAND DOLLARS IN U.S. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION FUNDS TO PROVIDE AND EXPAND P.E. PROGRAMS IN PUBLIC GRADE SCHOOLS IN MAUI COUNTY. THE PROGRAMS ARE EXPECTED TO BENEFIT THREE SCHOOLS PER YEAR FOR THE NEXT THREE SCHOOL YEARS ON A ROTATING BASIS. THE FUNDS WILL BE USED TO DEVELOP STAFF AND CURRICULUM, CONDUCT FITNESS ASSESSMENTS AND PURCHASE EQUIPMENT TO ENABLE STUDENTS TO ACTIVELY PARTICIPATE IN PHYSICAL EDUCATION ACTIVITIES.
