(Headlines-VO)

J: IT MAY BE THE QUIETEST FOURTH OF JULY IN YEARS AROUND MAUI - BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN THERE HAVEN'T BEEN SPECTACULAR DISPLAYS.

JY: AND MOTHER NATURE PAID A WAKE-UP CALL ON MAUI EARLY SUNDAY WHEN A 3-POINT-SIX EARTHQUAKE SHOOK A FEW EARLY RISERS AWAKE ON MAUI AND THE BIG ISLAND.

J: A WATER USERS ARE GETTING LITTLE JOLT OF REALITY THIS MONTH AS WATER AND SEWER RATES ARE GOING UP BY DOUBLE DIGITS.

JY: IN SPORTS, THE ONLY THING REALLY SURPRISING AT LAST WEEKEND'S CANOE RACES IN KIHEI - TURNED OUT TO BE THE WEATHER. KALAPANA HAS DETAILS AND HIGHLIGHTS OF HAWAIIAN CANOE CLUB'S DYNASTY-BUILDING COURSE IN SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS.

J: AND WITH THE COMPLETE FOURTH OF JULY WEEKEND RUNDOWN, AND THE LATEST FROM SPICY WORLD OF RICE CORAL, HOLLY CHUNG JOINS US WITH DETAILS ON ALL THAT'S LIGHTING UP THE NIGHTS - AND DAYS - AHEAD IN COMING ATTRACTIONS THIS WEEK ON MAUI TV NEWS.

(intro-FF)

Open (TWO SHOT)

J: ALOHA EVERYONE, AND HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY. THANKS FOR TUNING IN TO MAUI TV NEWS, MAUI'S EXCLUSIVE ON-LINE AND TELEVISION NEWSCAST. I'M JEFF KING.

JY: I'M JULIE Y. THIS JULY FOURTH WILL MOST LIKELY GO DOWN AS ONE OF THE QUIETEST EVER IN MAUI COUNTY.

(Turn to cam) IF YOU HEAR FIRECRACKERS GOING OFF THIS HOLIDAY WEEKEND - IT WILL BE BECAUSE SOMEONE HAD SOME LEFT OVER FROM NEW YEAR'S EVE. LAST WEEK MAUI COUNTY FIRE OFFICIALS ISSUED A BAN OF SALES OF FIRECRACKERS. SO FAR, CONSUMERS DON'T SEEM TO MIND MUCH. STORES WILL STILL SELL NOVELTY FOURTH OF JULY FIREWORKS, LIKE SPARKLERS AND FOUNTAINS, BUT FIRECRACKER SALES ARE OUT UNTIL DECEMBER AT THE EARLIEST.

STATE FIRE SAFETY OFFICIALS SAY SALES OF FIRECRACKERS HAVE BEEN DECLINING STEADILY SINCE THE 25-DOLLAR FIRECRACKER PERMIT WAS TACKED ONTO THE SALE PRICE TWO YEARS AGO. AND, THEY ADD, THERE HAVE BEEN SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER FIRECRACKER SALES FOR NEW YEAR'S EVE CELEBRATIONS THAN THERE HAVE BEEN FOR FOURTH OF JULY CELEBRATIONS SINCE THE PERMIT FEES BEGAN.

(vo) AND, SPEAKING OF "LIGHTING UP THE NIGHT," MAUI POLICE SAY THEY WILL BE OUT IN FORCE THIS WEEKEND, LOOKING FOR THOSE WHO CHOOSE TO GET BEHIND THE WHEEL AFTER A FEW COCKTAILS.

IN ADDITION TO INCREASED VIGILANCE ON ALL MAJOR ROADS IN MAUI COUNTY, POLICE SAY WE CAN EXPECT DUI CHECKPOINTS IN MORE POPULATED REGIONS OF THE COUNTY.

(on-cam) IN PARTICULAR, POLICE PRESENCE WILL BE BEEFED UP IN LAHAINA. PATROL DISTRICT COMMANDER CAPTAIN CHARLES HIRATA SAYS THERE WILL BE OFFICERS IN UNIFORM - AND IN PLAIN CLOTHES - KEEPING AN EYE ON THINGS THROUGHOUT THE LONG HOLIDAY WEEKEND.

(fire)(PiP-flames)

J: THE NIGHT SKY WAS LIT UP IN A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT WAY LAST WEEK IN WHAT HAS TO BE ONE OF THE MOST PEACEFUL AND LOW-KEY BRUSH FIRES IN RECENT MEMORY.

(VO) AROUND 9 O'CLOCK LAST WEDNESDAY NIGHT THIS WAS THE SCENE ON THE WESTERN RIDGE OF KAHALAWAI. FROM KIHEI, THE FLAMES APPEARED TO BE ABOVE MAALAEA, MUCH LIKE THE MAJOR FIRE THERE ALMOST EXACTLY ONE YEAR BEFORE.

IN YOU LOOK CLOSELY, YOU CAN SEE THE FLASHING RED LIGHTS OF THE KAHEAWA WIND FARM TOWERS. IN THIS CASE, THOUGH, THE FLAMES WERE NOT ONLY BEYOND THE KAHEAWA WIND FARM FROM THE KIHEI PERSPECTIVE, BUT WERE ACTUALLY ABOVE UKUMEHAME.

(on-cam) IN ALL MORE THAN TWO DOZEN COUNTY AND STATE FIREFIGHTERS PLUS THE AIR ONE HELICOPTER BATTLED THE STUBBORN BLAZE - NEARLY TWO MILES UPSLOPE FROM THE HONOAPI'LANI HIGHWAY. THE FIRE THREATENED HABITATS OF ENDANGERED BIRDS, BUT THERE'S NO WORD ON WHEN ANY ANIMALS WERE HARMED. NO STRUCTURES WERE THREATENED AND NO ONE WAS INJURED. THE BLAZE CONSUMED JUST LESS THAN A HUNDRED ACRES AND FIRE OFFICIALS STILL HAVE NOT DETERMINED THE CAUSE.

(Earthquake)(PiP-Map)

JY: THERE WAS ANOTHER POTENTIALLY MAJOR EVENT THAT VERY FEW PEOPLE NOTICED THIS WEEK. AN EARTHQUAKE.

(ff-cg-vo) AT SIX-34 SUNDAY MORNING, AN EARTHQUAKE MEASURING THREE-POINT-SIX ON THE RICHTER SCALE, STRUCK IN THE ALENUIHAHA CHANNEL BETWEEN MAUI AND THE BIG ISLAND. ACCORDING TO THE U.S. GEOLOGICAL SURVEY, THE TEMBLOR STRUCK TEN MILES BENEATH THE OCEAN FLOOR, ABOUT 25 MILES SOUTH-SOUTHEAST OF MAKENA.

(ON-0CAM) THERE WERE NO INJURIES OR DAMAGE REPORTED FROM THE QUAKE. AND, WITHIN MINUTES OF THE EVENT, OFFICIALS WITH THE PACIFIC DISASTER CENTER DETERMINED THAT THERE WAS NO THREAT OF A TSUNAMI OR ROCK SLIDE.

(Water Rates)(PiP-Water)

J: WATER LEVELS DID RISE - BRIEFLY - LAST WEEK WHEN SOME STEADY SHOWERS FELL OVER THE EAST MAUI WATERSHED. UNFORTUNATELY, IT WASN'T ENOUGH TO REPLENISH RESERVOIRS THAT REMAIN AT NEAR HISTORIC LOWS. WITH THAT IN MIND, WATER CONSERVATION IS STILL A MAJOR REQUEST FROM THE MAUI COUNTY DEPARTMENT OF WATER SUPPLY.

(FF-CG-VO) WATER USE INCHED UP ACROSS THE ISLAND OF MAUI LAST WEEK, WHILE IT FELL SLIGHTLY ON MOLOKA'I. WHILE USE IS UP, WATER OFFICIALS ARE PLEASE THAT OVERALL WATER CONSUMPTION COUNTY-WIDE IN IS STILL NEARLY FIVE MILLION GALLONS A DAY LESS THAN LAST YEAR.

Jacky Takakura, Spokeswoman, Department of Water Supply

JT01: "I think customers are really getting the message that water is precious - and not something that can be taken for granted."

THAT'S WATER DEPARTMENT SPOKESWOMAN JACKY TAKAKURA. SHE ALSO HAS THE UNPLEASANT TASK OF ANSWERING OUR QUESTIONS ABOUT THE NEW WATER RATES THAT WENT INTO EFFECT TUESDAY. CUSTOMER CAN EXPECT THEIR WATER RATES TO INCREASE BY AN AVERAGE OF 12 PER CENT, AND RATES FOR SEWER SERVICE GO UP BY ABOUT 10 PERCENT. WE ASKED IF THE RATE INCREASE WAS IN ANY WAY A WARNING TO CUSTOMERS TO CUT BACK ON WATER USE BY MAKING IT MORE EXPENSIVE.

JT02: "No. This has been in the budget planning process and has been planned for - regardless of drought conditions. However, one of things we'd like to consider is a 'drought rate.' Because when there is a drouhgt, we're pumping water up from the lower elevations and our costs go through the roof."

THIS IS THE FOURTH STRAIGHT YEAR WATER RATES HAVE INCREASED - AFTER FIVE YEARS WHEN THEY DIDN'T GO UP AT ALL. THE RATE INCREASE IS EXPECTED TO GENERATE ABOUT 5-POINT-FOUR MILLION DOLLARS IN REVENUE FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF WATER SUPPLY TO HELP DEFRAY THEIR BIGGEST EXPENSE: THE COST OF ELECTRICITY TO PUMP WATER UPCOUNTRY IN TIMES OF DROUGHT.

ALSO EFFECTIVE JULY FIRST, YOUR TRASH BILL IS GOING UP. BILLS FOR THE SECOND HALF OF 2008 WERE SENT OUT LAST WEEK NOTING AN INCREASE AS OF JULY FIRST FROM 12 DOLLARS A MONTH TO 14 DOLLARS PER MONTH ON MAUI AND MOLOKA'I. RATES WILL INCREASE ON LANA'I FROM SIX TO SEVEN DOLLARS PER MONTH.

(vo) ALSO, THE MESSAGE STAMPED ON TOP OF YOUR TRASH CAN LID IS NOW OUT OF DATE IF YOU LIVE IN CENTRAL MAUI. A NEW UNION CONTRACT WILL NOW HAVE REFUSE WORKINGS ON THE JOB LONG BEFORE THE CRACK OF DAWN. WHAT THAT MEANS TO YOU AND ME IS THAT OUR CANS HAVE TO BE IN PLACE NO LATER THAN 5 A.M.

(on-cam) FOR MOST, THAT'S STILL WAY TOO EARLY TO GET UP...LEAVING THEM IN PLACE THE NIGHT BEFORE STILL WORKS BEST. ALSO, BECAUSE OF THE RAPID INCREASE IN THE NUMBER OF CUSTOMERS IN THE WAIEHU AREA, SOME ROUTES WILL BE CHANGED STARTING THE MIDDLE OF THIS MONTH. CUSTOMERS AFFECTED BY THE CHANGE WILL RECEIVE FLYERS ATTACHED TO THEIR REFUSE CONTAINERS.


TOSS TO B BLOCK

JY: UP NEXT ON MAUI TV NEWS, THE COST OF GETTING AROUND. AS THE IDEA OF TAKING THE BUS BECOMES MORE POPULAR, M-E-O'S NEW TRANSPORTATION CENTER GETS A MAJOR FINANCIAL JUMP START.

J: BUT, IN THE MEANTIME - NOT SURPRISINGLY - A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE CHOOSING NOT TO TRAVEL THIS FOURTH OF JULY WEEKEND. WE'LL SHOW YOU SOME OF THE RESULTS OF A TRIPLE-A SURVEY ABOUT HOW GAS PRICES ARE AFFECTING US HERE IN THE ISLANDS.

JY: THEN WE'LL TAKE YOU TO THE LAWN AT THE GRAND WAILEA WHERE JAZZ AND A BREATHTAKING SUNSET FILLED THE SKY SATURDAY NIGHT. THAT AND MORE WHEN MAUI TV NEWS CONTINUES.


B BLOCK

(MEO GRANT) (PiP-meo LOGO)

J: IT'S NOT OFTEN THAT A BANK OPENS ITS CHECKBOOK FOR A NON-PROFIT CONTRIBUTION, BUT THAT'S JUST WHAT HAPPENED LAST WEEK.

(FF-CG-VO) BANK OF HAWAII CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER AL LANDON PRESENTED THE FIRST OF FOUR INSTALLMENTS - THAT WILL TOTAL ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS FOR THE NEW MAUI ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY TRANSPORTATION CENTER.

SB01: "This is the first of an installment. bank of Hawaii to MEO to recognize our need for a new transportation center here in Maui County. Of course this is a large transportation center and we had our original capital campaign back in December - but it's a large sum or money. Capital campiagns don'e star with one event and end with one event. It's a long process."///

WHEN COMPLETE THE TRANSPORTATION CENTER WILL COST BETWEEN 10 AND 12 MILLION DOLLARS, SO A CHECK FOR 25 THOUSAND - OR EVENT A PLEDGE OF A 100 THOUSAND MAY SEEM LIKE JUST A DROP IN THE BUCKET.

SBO2: "It's is a drop in the bucket - but it is a significant drop. It's more than just a littl spot. But it will make a difference - both symbolically and beneficially for the whole program in the future."

FUNDING GOT A JUMP START WHEN THE PLAN WAS ANNOUNCED IN DECEMBER WITH 1.2 MILLION DOLLARS COMMITED BY THE STATE AND ANOTHER 400 THOUSAND FROM MAUI COUNTY. SO THEY HAVE ENOUGH TO START TURNING DIRT.

SB03: "We actually have enough money to start turning dirt now, but we don't have enough money to build buildings yet. We're waiting for zoning changes from ag to light industrial so we can use the parcel A&B gave us. We look forward to turning dirt less than a year from now."

THE CHECK PRESENTATION WAS MADE AT M-E-O'S ANNUAL MEETING LAST WEEK - WHEN OUTGOING BOARD PRESIDENT RIKI HOKAMA TURNED OVER THE REIGNS TO INCOMING PRESIDENT GRANT CHUN. AMONG THE HIGHLIGHTS OF HOKAMA'S REIGN: THE GIFT BY A-AND-B PROPERTIES OF FIVE ACRES OF LAND NEAR THE OLD SUGAR MUSEUM FOR THE M-E-O TRANSPORTATION CENTER. GROUND BREAKING IS EXPECTED IN ABOUT A YEAR.

(Music Invitational) (PiP-Jazz Stars-Logo)

JY: IF YOU'RE PLANNING ON HEADING TO LAHAINA FOR THE FOURTH, YOU'LL ENJOY A GREAT CONCERT ON THE LAWN AT THE LIBRARY. THE CONCERT IS FREE AND IS JUST ONE IN A SERIES OF FREE MUSIC EVENTS THAT ARE PART OF THE 2008 MAUI INVITATIONAL BAND FESTIVAL. MAUI TV NEWS REPORTER JEFF KING HAS MORE.

(take Jazz pkg) IF THIS SCENE GOT ANY COOLER - OR THE MUSIC ANY HOTTER, THERE MIGHT BE A WEATHER WARNING. A FREE CONCERT - JAZZ UNDER THE STARS AT GHHE GRAND WAILEA, PUT ON BY AECG - ARTS EDUCATION FOR CHILDREN - A MAUI INSTITUTION SINCE 1997.

Bryant Neal, Exec Dir/ Founder, Arts Education for Children Group

BN01: "We started, oh gosh, 11 years ago as a non-profit, a group of parents who were concerned about arts education for our children. We started after-school programs. As they've growm we've had to grow with them and so the programs have had to develop to keep them entertained and challenged."

SATURDAY NIGHT, MAUI STUDENTS WERE AMONG THE AUDIENCE FOR THIS SHOW - FEATURING THE LIKES OF VICKIE RANDLE FROM THE TONIGHT SHOW BAND - AND LEGENDARY JAZZ GREAT EMIL RICHARDS. BUT - THANKS TO AECG, MAUI BENEFITS FROM A GREAT SERIES OF CONCERTS - AND MAUI STUDENTS BENEFIT EVEN MORE.

BN02: "The kid benefits because he gets to learn a new 'laungage,' schools teach the three "r's' but - I don't need to say it, the arts often get pushed aside. So we're here to augment what's available in the schools, to be able to complement whatever's going on."

AECG OPERATES ON GRANTS AND CONTRIBUTIONS AND SERVES STUDENTS IN PUBLIC, PRIVATE AND HOME SCHOOLS ACROSS THE ISLAND OF MAUI - AND NIGHTS LIKE THIS ARE FREE BECAUSE OF THE GENEROSITY OF THEIR SPONSORS.

BN03: "Our sposons are the Hawaii Tourism Authority, County of Maui, of course the Grand Wailea. == == So to answer your question, yes it's free, but it 's a nice government slash community -slash everybody coming together to make something beautiful happen."

AND IT COULDN'T HAVE BEEN A MORE BEAUTIFUL NIGHT FOR IT TO HAPPEN. A LITTLE LATER ON THIS WEEK'S EDITION OF MAUI TV NEWS, WE'LL BRING YOU MORE OF THE BEAUTIFUL HAPPENING OF JAZZ UNDER THE STARS. REPORTING FROM THE GRAND LAWN AT THE GRANDWAILEA FOR MAUI TV NEWS, I'M JEFF KING.

THERE ARE TWO MORE EVENTS BEFORE THIS YEAR'S FESTIVAL WRAPS UP. THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT, THREE ARE FREE JAM SESSIONS AT 7-30 P.M. AT CAFE MARC AUREL ON MARKET STREET IN WAILUKU. AND THE FESTIVAL'S FINAL EVENT, A BLUES FEST SATURDAY NIGHT STARTING AT SEVEN AT THE HISTORIC IAO THEATER IN WAILUKU.

(AAA-StayHome)(PiP-AAA Logo-Hawaii)

J: IT'S A GOOD THING YOU DON'T HAVE TO TRAVEL FAR TO ATTEND THESE KINDS OF EVENTS - AND IT'S A GOOD THING MOST OF THEM ARE FREE...BECAUSE, ACCORDING TO A NEW REPORT BY TRIPLE-A HAWAII, NEARLY HALF OF US HAVE CUT BACK SIGNIFICANTLY ON THE MILES WE DRIVE AND TWO THIRDS OF US HAVE LEARNED TO COMBINE ERRANDS IN ORDER TO REDUCE DRIVING.

THE SURVEY SAYS THOSE WITH ANNUAL INCOMES OF LESS THAN 50-THOUSAND DOLLARS ARE THE MOST LIKELY TO BE AFFECTED BY SKYROCKETING GAS PRICES, AND IT'S NOT AFFECTING JUST OUR DRIVING:

(FF-cg-VO) MORE THAN A QUARTER OF THOSE SURVEYED SAY THEY'VE CUT BACK ON GOING OUT TO DINNER OR FOR ENTERTAINMENT.

COMBINING ERRANDS WAS THE HIGHEST-RATED LIFESTYLE CHANGE. NOT SURPRISINGLY, REDUCING OVERALL DRIVING WAS NEXT. BUT DRIVERS ALSO SAY THEY'LL BE MORE CONSCIENTIOUS ABOUT DRIVING HABITS - INCLUDING DRIVING SLOWER TO INCREASE FUEL EFFICIENCY, TAKING THE FAMILY CAR THAT GETS THE BEST MILEAGE AND - EVEN GIVING UP THE FAMILY RIDE ALL TOGETHER WHEN THEY CAN.

(ON-CAM) ABOUT ONE IN 10 OF US IS CANCELLING A PLANNED VACATION - PARTICULARLY THOSE TO THE MAINLAND. SIX PERCENT SAY THEY'RE GOING TO TRY MORE TELECOMMUTING, WORKING FROM HOME, AND ABOUT ONE IN 20 SAY THEY'RE LOOKING TO BUY A CAR THAT GETS BETTER MILEAGE THAN THEY'RE GETTING NOW.

(Toss to C Block)

JY: UP NEXT IN SPORTS, HAWAIIAN CANOE CLUB CONTINUES TO WIN. AND THEY DO IT BIGGER AND BETTER EVERY WEEK. KALAPANA HAS THE DETAILS AND HIGHLIGHTS UP NEXT IN SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS.
