J: IT'S A BUSY WEEK FOR THE EARTH, SEA AND SKY ON MAUI AS THE DEPARTMENT OF LAND AND NATURAL RESOURCES HOLDS SEVERAL MEETINGS TO ANNOUNCE UPCOMING CONSERVATION PLANS.

HC: CONSERVATION MAY BE AN UNDERSTATEMENT AS COUNTY WATER OFFICIALS CONSIDER MANDATORY CUTBACK ORDERS TO PRESERVE WHAT WATER THERE IS ON MAUI.

J: AND ALMOST EXACTLY ONE YEAR AFTER ITS FIRST VISIT TO MAUI, THE HAWAII SUPERFERRY MAY FINALLY BE EXPERIENCING A LITTLE SMOOTH SAILING.

HC: IN SPORTS, NOW THAT THE CANOE REGATTA SEASON IS OVER, IT'S TIME TO FOCUS ON STATES. KALAPANA HAS THE NUMBERS COMPARING HAWAIIAN CANOE CLUB AND THEIR MAIN O'AHU COMPETITOR, LANIKAI, IN SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS.

J: AND HOLLY HUNG HAS THE DETAILS ON SHARK SIGHTINGS...NOT TO MENTION JET SIGHTINGS AS WEST SIDE STORE PREPARES TO OPEN. THAT AND MUCH MORE IN COMING ATTRACTIONS THIS WEEK ON MAUI TV NEWS.

(intro-FF)

Open (TWO SHOT)

J: ALOHA EVERYONE, AND THANK YOU FOR JOINING US THIS WEEK FOR MAUI TV NEWS, MAUI'S EXCLUSIVE INTERNET AND TELEVISION NEWSCAST. I'M JEFF KING.

HC: AND I'M HOLLY CHUNG. SITTING IN THIS WEEK FOR JULIE Y. A FAVORITE SOUTH MAUI DESTINATION IS ABOUT TO GET A VACATION FROM PEOPLE - A TWO-YEAR VACATION.

(Turn to cam) STARTING AUGUST FIRST - THE AREA ORIGINALLY CALLED KEONI'O'IO BY HAWAIIANS WILL BE OFF LIMITS FROM SHORE FOR TWO YEARS. THE OFF-LIMITS AREAS INCLUDE THE UNMARKED TRAILS TO THE POPULAR KALAELOA SNORKELING SPOT - ALSO CALLED "THE AQUARIUM," AND TO MOKUHA, KNOWN IN THE GUIDE BOOKS AS "THE FISHBOWL."

NORTHERN PORTION OF THE PRESERVE WILL STILL BE ACCESSIBLE FROM SHORE - BUT ONLY BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 5:30 A.M. AND 7:30 P.M. SOME OF THE OPEN AREAS INCLUDE WAIALA COVE, THE COASTAL AREA ALONG AHIHI BAY AND THE SURF SPOT KNOWN AS "DUMPS."

THE REST OF THE RESERVE - WHICH INCLUDES SOME OF HAWAII'S MOST RECENT VOLCANIC ERUPTION SITES AS WELL AS SOME OF HAWAII'S OLDEST REEFS - WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL JULY 31ST 2010.

IT'S ONE OF THE STATE'S 19 NATURAL AREA RESERVES - AND THE ONLY ONE THAT INCLUDES SHORELINE AND REEFS. THE THREE-MILE STRETCH OF COASTLINE IN THE KEONIOIO RESERVE IS MORE THAN 2,000 ACRES AND IS THE ONLY STRETCH OF MAUI COASTLINE THAT IS TOTALLY PROTECTED.

BUT IT'S NOT PROTECTED FROM VISITORS. WITH NO AMENITIES, DLNR OFFICIALS SAY THE AREA IS BEING "LOVED TO DEATH" BY THE 700-PLUS VISITORS A DAY WHO TRUDGE ACROSS UNMARKED TRAILS AND LEAVE REGULAR, CARELESS REMINDERS OF THEIR VISITS.

(DLNR-2)

J: AQUATIC RESOURCES ARE THE FOCUS OF SEVERAL OTHER COMMUNITY MEETINGS INVOLVING DLNR JURISDICTION THIS WEEK. MONDAY MORNING A MEETING IN KAHULUI HELPED LOCALS AND ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS COMMUNICATE A LITTLE BETTER ON THE TOPICS OF CRIMINAL VERSUS CIVIL VIOLATIONS OF DLNR RULES AND HOW THOSE VIOLATIONS WILL BE HANDLED. THE GOAL IS TO NOT ONLY MINIMIZE VIOLATIONS - BUT TO STREAMLINE THE PROCESS OF ANY RELATED FINES OR PENALTIES.

THEN, TUESDAY EVEN, THE REGULAR MEETING OF THE KIHEI COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION INCLUDED AN INFORMATION SESSION ON REEF ETIQUETTE, AQUARIUM FISH COLLECTING AND RELATED TOPICS. THAT WAS LARGELY TO ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO ATTEND THE LARGER MEETING WEDNESDAY NIGHT IN PUKALANI.

AT THAT MEETING, DLNR DIRECTOR LAURA THIELEN ADDRESS GOVERNOR LINDA LINGLE'S MAUI ADVISORY COMMITTEE - AND THE PUBLIC - ABOUT PENDING RULINGS ON BANNING AQUARIUM FISH COLLECTING, SETTING BAG LIMITS FOR FOOD FISH AND CREATING NO-TAKE ZONES.

THAT MEETING TOOK PLACE PAST OUR PRODUCTION DEADLINE FOR THIS WEEK'S EDITION OF MAUI TV NEWS AND WE PLAN TO OFFER COMPLETE COVERAGE OF THAT SESSION IN NEXT WEEK'S EDITION OF OUR SHOW.

(Superferry) (PiP-Superferry)

HC: IT WAS ONE YEAR AGO THIS WEEK THE HAWAII SUPERFERRY MADE IT'S FIRST APPEARANCE IN KAHULUI HARBOR. SINCE THAT TIME THE ALAKAI HAS SPENT MORE TIME IN COURT AND IN DRY DOCK THAN IN THE HARBOR. BUT, AS MAUI TV NEWS REPORTER JEFF KING TELLS US - THE DAYS OF AT LEAST A LITTLE SMOOTHER SAILING MAY HAVE FINALLY ARRIVED FOR THE ALAKAI.

(take Superferry package) FROM THE FIRST TIME THE HAWAII SUPERFERRY APPEARED ON THE MAUI HORIZON A YEAR AGO THIS WEEK, IT HAS BEEN AN IMPOSING FIGURE - IN KAHULUI HARBOR, IN THE NEWS AND IN COURT. THERE ARE STILL THOSE WHO STRONGLY OPPOSE THE SUPERFERRY, AND THOSE WHO SUPPORT IT.

LOVE IT OR HATE IT, MORE AND MORE PEOPLE ARE RIDING IT. BUT THIS IS NOT AN UPDATE ON THE POLITICAL OR LEGAL STATUS OF THE HAWAII SUPERFERRY. THIS IS A STORY ABOUT THE BIG ALUMINUM BOAT ITSELF - AND ABOUT THE SUPERFERRY EXPERIENCE.

DRIVING ON, YOU GET THE SENSE THEY WASH AND WAX THE CAR DECK EVERY NIGHT. THERE'S A CREWMEMBER AT EVERY TURN AND YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHERE TO GO AND WHERE TO STOP.

Capt. Adam Parsons

THE BRIDGE ON THE ALAKAI LOOKS MORE LIKE THE STARSHIP ENTERPRISE THAN THE U.S.S. ENTERPRISE. THE JOYSTICK IN CAPTAIN ADAM PARSONS RIGHT HAND - THAT'S THE STEERING WHEEL.

AP01: "Right. That's the helm. All bridge controls are operated from the track ball. Radar forward of each operator and the chart system in between. (pause) All the throttle control here for the engines."

((AFTER SIMULATOR TRAINING IN BALTIMORE, SUPERFERRY'S STAFF OF BRIDGE OFFICERS TRAINED FOR TWO MONTHS IN ALABAMA BEFORE DELIVERING THE ALAKAI TO HONOLULU. THEY'VE MADE MORE THAN 200 TRIPS INTO AND OUT OF KAHULUI HARBOR - THEY DON'T NEED HARBOR PILOTS TO COME ABOARD AND GUIDE THEM IN. ))

THE CAPTAIN'S JOB IS TO SAVE FUEL. MANAGING LOAD, MINIMIZING PORT TURNAROUND TIME AND DRIVING SLOWER SAVES AN ENORMOUS COST IN FUEL.

((CHIEF ENGINEER CHRISTIAN YUHAS HAS TWO SETS OF COMPUTERS CONTROLS FOR EVERY ELECTRICAL AND MECHANICAL ASPECT OF THE SUPERFERRY. AND IF BOTH THE MAIN AND BACKUP SYSTEM SGHOULD FAIL...HE HAS GOOD OLD FASHIONED PUSH BUTTONS TO DO THE SAME THING.))

ON EACH SIDE OF THE VESSEL ARE THE DOCKING STATIONS - WITH IDENTICAL CONTROLS TO THE MAIN BRIDGE, INCLUDING A SINGLE JOYSTICK. tHERE'S REALTIME WEATHER AND SEA CONDITIONS AND - YES, DIE HARD MARITIME VETERANS, THE LABELS DON'T SAY PORT AND STARBOARD, THEY SAY LEFT AND RIGHT.

AP02: "The coastGuard Rules say "left and right.' Even though the rest of the world uses port and starboard, the US uses port and starboard, the Coast Guard says use Left and Right."

MEANWHILE, THE UPPER CAR DECK LOADED, RAISE THE RAMP AND VEHICLE STORAGE MORE THAN DOUBLES. THERE A ARE REGULARS NOWADAWYS ON THE ALAKAI, AND THESE DRIVERS KNOW HOW TO THREAD A NEEDLE WHEN IT COMES TO BACKING INTO A TIGHT SPOT...AND THEY DO IT WITH NOT ONE BUT TWO SEMIS.

THEN WE'RE OFF...FROM HERE ON, THE SIGHTS ARE THOSE ONE CAN ONLY VIEW FROM THE WATER AND THE WATER GOES BY PRETTY QUICKLY. IT'S HARD TO BEAT THIS PERSPECTIVE OF MAUI. THERE'S PLENTY TO KEEP THE KIDS OCCUPIED FOR THE THREE HOUR TRIP TO HONOLULU - AND THERE'S ALSO A GOOD OPPORTUNITY TO DO NOTHING.

THOSE TRUCK DRIVERS HAVE BECOME FRIENDS AND EVERY FRIDAY THEY HAVE A POTLUCK. THEY TOLD US THIS A BRAND NEW ROUTINE AND SO FAR...IT'S WORKING. FRIED CHICKEN, RICE, MAC SALAD OR DRIVING CONTAINERS BACK AND FORTH FROM DOWNTOWN TO THE AIRPORT. YEH - NOT A TOUGH CALL.

Jonathon Vellez, Commoddity Forwarders, Inc. Driver

COMMODITY FOWARDERS MOVES PERISHABLE GOODS INCLUDING SEAFOOD, PRODUCE AND MEAT, DRIVER JONATHON VELLEZ'S JOB IS ONE THAT WAS NOT POSSIBLE A YEAR AGO.

JV01: "I usually load 10 pallates, or whatever fits on the truck and deliver it to the Maui Farmer's Coop. Then they load 10 palates and I take them back to O'ahu."

THE LOVES TRUCKS ARE A REGULAR ON THE SUPERFERRY NOW. WHEN ALOHA CARGO CEASED OPERATIONS, THE NEW ROUTINE WAS ESTABLISHED. THE DELIVER A FRESH CONTAINER TO MAUI EACH MORNING AROUND 9:30 AND TAKE THE PREVIOUS DAY'S EMPTY CONTAINER HOME. THAT GIVES THEM LOTS OF TIGHT SQUEEZE PARKING PRACTICE.

ON THIS VOYAGE WE WENT ON THE NORTH SIDE OF MOLOKAI AND THE VIEWS WERE BREATHTAKING...TO ALMOST EVERYONE. THE CANYONS AND WATERFALLS AND THE SHEER MAGNITUDE OF THE HIGHEST SEACLIFFS IN THE WORLD WAS AWESOME. VISTAS WERE ENDLESS AND -TO MANY - ALMOST HUMBLING. MEMORIES AND MEMORY CARDS WERE FILLING TO CAPACITY.

ONCE IN THE KAIWI CHANNEL, WE MET DONNA AND LINDSEY AUSTIN, MOTHER AND DAUGHTER. DONNA WORKS FOR THE HAWAII SUPERFERRY, SO WE WE WEREN'T SURPRISED WHEN HER DAUGHTER SAID...

LA04: "Oh I love the Superferry. It's been a great ride. Great food Great entertainment - I've really enjoyed myself."

Donna and Lindsey Austin, Mother and Daughter.

WE WERE SURPRISED TO LEARN IT WAS MOM'S FIRST TRIP AS A SUPERFERRY PASSENGER. BUT IT WAS NOT THE FIRST TIME SHE AND DAUGHTER LINDSEY HAVE RIDDEN ON A BOAT TOGETHER. IN FACT, LINDSEY WAS RAISED ON A SCHOONER - AND APPARENTLY LEARNED A FEW THINGS ABOUT OPERATING LARGE VESSELS. SHE ATTENDED THE HAWAII MARITIME ACADEMY.

LA01: "So I sat for my maritime license when I was 17 years old and I got a 100-ton master's license."

THEN MOM AND YOUNG LINDSEY GOT INTO THE BUSINESS OF DELIVERING YACHTS ACROSS THE PACIFIC - WHICH GAVE THEM THE WILD IDEA OF ENTERING THE FAMED TRANS-PAC YACHT RACE FROM CALIFORNIA TO HAWAII. THEY DID OK.

LA02: "We came in first in our division and first overall. We actually beat our competitor so badly they weren't there for the banquet. Ha. They came in days later."

AT 22, LINDSEY AUSTIN BECAME THE YOUNGEST WINNING CAPTAIN IN THE HISTORY OF THE RACE. ON THIS MUCH LESS EVENTFUL VOYAGE, THEY WERE SCANNING THE MOLOKAI COAST IN PREPARATION FOR A KAYAK TRIP THEY'RE PLANNING FOR THE NORTH SHORE OF THE FRIENDLY ISLE.

APPROACHING HONOLULU, THE FAMILIAR SIGHTS FROM THIS AMAZING PERSPECTIVE WERE EVERYWHERE. AS LANDMARKS PASSED, ALMOST EVERYONE HAS A MEMORY FOR EACH ONE. FINALLY, DOCKED IN HONOLULU, OFFLOADING WAS JUST AS SMOOTH.

IT'S NOT UNCOMMON FOR SUPERFERRY VICE CHAIRMAN JOHN GARIBALDI TO BE THERE TO WAVE TO THE ARRIVING FOLKS.

JG01: "This is what it's all about. Coming out here to the port. Watching our passengers and their vehicles disembark. Seeing all those Maui license plates. All these great Maui people coming over here to spend the weekend on O'ahu. This is really a great part of my day just to come out here and greet people."///

((JG02: "It's great being on board - seeing 90 percent of the people being local people travelling - visiting family, going to see their kids on another island. Just getting away. Sports teams travelling. It makes the last four or five years worthwhile - and especially the last year."))

SUPERFERRY PLANS, ACCORDING TO GARIBALDI, ARE FULL SPEED AHEAD. THE SECOND VESSEL IS ABOUT 75 PERCENT BUILT AND IS SCHEDULED TO GO INTO SERVICE NEXT APRIL BETWEN O'AHU AND THE BIG ISLAND. MEANWHILE, HE REMAINS HOPEFUL THAT COMMUNITY SUPPORT WILL GROW TO THE POINT THAT KAUA'I WILL ACCEPT THE SUPERFERRY EXPERIENCE SOON AS WELL.

JG03: "I'm probably at the height of my optimism about Hawaii Superferry's existence here in the islands and being a real important part of our infrastructure."

VEHICLE SCREENING AND ID CHECKING HAPPEN AT LEAST TWICE PLUS RANDOM FOLLOW-UP INSPECTIONS TO PREVENT CASES LIKE THE ATTEMPTED IMU ROCK SMUGGLING INCIDENT OF LAST AUGUST.

JG04: "We take a very active part in our screening of passengers and vehicles to make sure everyone abides by the law. That's something we don't condone - that's really a matter for DLNR and those individuals to deal with. We have committed our company to hold the environmental laws to the highest standard and as passegers and vehicles come on board, the same applies."

FAST FORWARD TO THE TRIP HOME AND THE EXPERIENCE, THE HAPPY FACES, THE SLEEPY FACES - THOSE ARE THE SAME BUT THE VIEWS ARE WORLDS APART. PASSING A SAILBOAT ON THE SOUTHWEST END OF MOLOKAI ON OUR PORT...PASSING SHIPWRECK BEACH ON LANAI ON THE RIGHT...HEADING HOME TO MAUI.

AS AFTERNOON TURNED TO EVENING, MOLOKAI GREW EVEN MORE BEAUTIFUL BUT, AS WE CRUISED PAST THE GEMINI, FRAMED AGAINST KA'ANAPALI, THINKING IT COULDN;'T GET ANY PRETTIER, HEADING AROUND THE POINT BROUGHT US FACE TO FACE WITH INCREDIBLE KAHAKULOA VIEWS. THE CLIFFS AT DUSK - NOT TO MENTION THE CAVES - CAPPED A MOST MEMORABLE BOATRIDE.

THERE ARE STILL ROUGH WATERS AHEAD FOR THE HAWAII SUPERFERRY AS A COMPANY, BUT AN EXPERIENCE LIKE THIS WOULDN'T BE POSSIBLE IF THERE WASN'T AN ALAKAI. FOR MUI TV NEWS, I'M JEFF KING.

(on-cam tag) FOR AN EXTENDED VERSION OF THIS STORY, GO TO MAUI TV NEWS-DOT-COM AND LOOK FOR THE LINK TO EXTENDED STORIES. AND, A LITTLE LATER ON THIS WEEK'S EDITION OF MAUI TV NEWS, WE'LL FEATURE MORE OF THE BREATHTAKING SIGHTS CAPTURED FROM THE ALAKAI.


(WATER CUTBACKS)(PiP-Drop)

J: MEANWHILE, BACK ONSHORE, DESPITE A COUPLE OF GOOD DOWNPOURS THIS WEEK, ALL OF MAUI COUNTY HAS BEEN MUCH DRIER THAN NORMAL. THAT HAS COUNTY OFFICIALS WORRIED. SO WORRIED THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF WATER SUPPLY IS CONSIDERING MANDATORY WATER RESTRICTIONS ACROSS THE COUNTY. THE BIGGEST PROBLEM IS UPCOUNTRY WHERE RESERVOIR LEVELS ARE AT HISTORIC LOWS.

THE PRIMARY SOURCE OF WATER IN UPCOUNTRY MAUI IS THE WAILOA DITCH - WHICH EMPTIES INTO THE KAMOLE WIER WATER TREATMENT FACILITY. WATER FROM THERE SUPPLIES MAKAWAO, PUKALANI, UPPER AND LOWER KULA ULUPALAKUA AND KANAIO. LAST WEEK THE WAILOA DITCH WAS RUNNING AT ONLY ABOUT 12 MILLION GALLONS A DAY. IT WAS BUILT TO HANDLE NEARLY 200 MILLION GALLONS A DAY.

WEST MAUI IS ALSO DEPENDENT ON SURFACE WATER - BUT NOT QUITE TO THE EXTREME THAT UPCOUNTRY MAUI IS. NONETHELESS, TO SAY THE LEAST - IT'S PRETTY DRY.

(vo) WATER DEPARTMENT SUPERVISOR TONY LINDER IS STANDING ON THE BRIDGE OVER THE THE HONOLUA DITCH THAT NORMALLY FLOWS TO THE PINEAPPLE FIELDS. BUT IT'S BONE DRY - DRY ENOUGH TO BLEACH THE CEMENT - AND SPROUT NEW WEEDS ALONG THE STREAM BED.

(on-cam) WATER DIRECTORY JERREY ENG SAYS HE'S EXTREMELY CONCERNED ABOUT THE CURRENT STATE OF THE DROUGHT AND SAYS WEATHER FORECASTERS ARE NOT PROMISING ANY RELIEF ANY TIME SOON. AND THAT'S WHY THE COUNTY IS CONSIDERING ENACTING MANDATORY WATER USE RESTRICTIONS COUNTY-WIDE.

TOSS TO B BLOCK

HC: UP NEXT ON MAUI TV NEWS, HE'S AN AUTHOR WITH A PHD IN HISTORY, FORMER SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE NEWT GINGRICH WAS ON MAUI LAST WEEK. MAUI TV NEWS CAUGHT UP WITH HIM.

J: AND WE ALSO CAUGHT UP WITH MARIA, TONY, BRUNO, THE SHARKS AND THE JETS. WE'LL TAKE YOU BEHIND THE SCENES AS SOME VERY TALENTED YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN REHEARSE FOR WEST SIDE STORY.

HC: AND - BELIEVE IT OR NOT - IT'S ALMOST TIME FOR THE SEMI-ANNUAL E-CYCLING EVENT. THAT AND MORE WHEN MAUI TV NEWS CONTINUES.

B BLOCK

HC: NEXT WEEK A FIRST-OF-ITS KIND EVENT WILL TAKE OVER THE GRAND LAWN AT THE MAUI TROPICAL PLANTATION. THE MAUI ACADEMY OF THE PERFORMING ARTS WILL PRESENT AN ENSEMBLE CAST IN "WEST SIDE STORY" UNDER THE STARS. AS REHEARSALS WIND WON, JEFF KING TAKE US BEHIND THE SCENES FOR A PEEK AT THE SHARKS, THE JETS...AND MAYBE A FEW BUTTERFLIES.

(Take MAPA pkg) THERE ARE SHARKS ON MAUI...JETS, TOO. IT'S THE FINAL WEEK OF REHEARSALS FOR WEST SIDE STORY - ANOTHER AMBITIOUS PRODUCTION OF THE MAUI ACADEMY OF PERFORMING ARTS, A NON-PROFIT INSTITUTION ON MAUI FOR MORE THAN THREE DECADES.

WEST SIDE STORY WILL BE AN OUTDOOR PRODUCTION, SPONSORED BY COFFEES OF HAWAII ON THE LAWN AT THE MAUI TROPICAL PLANTATION. YES, IT WILL BE A LARGE UNDERTAKING. BUT THINGS THEY DO AT MAPA ARE BIG. THEIR WAILUKU STUDIO IS VERY LARGE - AND VERY FULL OF COSTUMES, PROPS, REHEARSAL SPACE...AND VERY FULL OF TALENT.

David Johnston, Exec. Artistic Dir, MAPA +Director West Side Story

dj01: I think we have an exceptional group of kids this summer. I'm really impressed with the abilities of the kids - the talents. They're all levels, too. There are some kids who've been with the program for four or five years. there are some that are some kids who are new this year. There are kids who bring their talents from other schools...all comebine to take their skills and talents to the next level of training."

TRAINING IS RIGOROUS. WHILE WEST SIDE STORY HAS CLASSIC MOMENTS AND MEMORABLE SONGS, GETTING READY FOR WEST SIDE STORY FEATURES MUSIC YOU WON'T HEAR ON THE STAGE.

(warmup cutaways)

45 MINUTES AFTER DAILY VOCAL WARMUPS BEGIN...YOU GET YOUR FIRST GLIMPSE OF SOMETHING FROM THE PLAY. CHOREOGRAPHER REBECCA OWEN PUTS HER YOUNG CHARGES THROUGH THEIR PACES, WHIKLE THE MULTI-TALENTED MART KLUTH MAKES IT ABUNDANTLY CLEAR WHY SHE'S MAPA'S MUSICAL DIRECTOR. WEST SIDE STORY WILL FEATURE 45 ACTORS/SINGERS/DANCERS, TEN STAFF AND CREW & MASS OF VOLUNTEERS.

ON AN ISLAND THERE IS A LIMITED POOL OF TALENT - BUT YOU WOULDN'T KNOW IT BY THE RANGE OF PRODUCTIONS PULLED OFF AND PUT ON BY THE ACADEMY. IN FACT, JOHNSTON, SAYS, THEY'RE REALLY NOT AFRAID TO TRY ANYTHING - AS LONG AS IT MEET THE ACADEMY'S NEEDS.

DJ02: "We try to choose a play - we have certain criteria when selecting a play. We need to involve a lot of kids - give a lot of kids stage time and not just stage time, but the opportunity to grow as young artists. And, what I love most about the program - it's not just aboutteaching kids acting, singing and dancing but we're giving them life skills and theater is just a great training ground for people to learn how to become better people."

Carolyn Wright, Director of Programs, MAPA

CW02: "I think MAPA is more about building community by enriching people. Our goal isn't necessarily to give all the talented kids a place to perform - although I think we do a great job of that. Our goal is to give everyone - talented or not - how do you get them to express themselves?"

ONE OF THOSE LEARNING TO EXPRESS HIMSELF IS KAMEHAMEHA FOOTBALL PLAYER AND WEIGHTLIFTER ETHAN CABATINGAN, IN HIS DEBUT PERFORMANCE HE PLAYS BERNARDO, LEADER OF THE SHARKS, WHEN ETHAN WALKED INTO THE ACADEMY HE HAD VERY LITTLE ACTING EXPERIENCE, BUT SAID HE'S LIKE TO DO HIS SUMMER INTERNSHIP THERE.

CW01: "So I said what would like to do? Do you want to run the lights? Run sound? He said, 'I'd kinda' like to act.' So I said come to auditions and let's see what happens. And this kid just blew us away. He is so talented. His voice, he can sing. because he's an athlete he can move. And he can act. He has this amazing ability to connect with his character and I think it's because he's a risk taker. He's not afraid of just jumping right in there and doing it."

Ethan Cabatingan, Kamehameha Sudent, "Bernardo" Leader of Sharks

EC01:"It's all really new to me. I'm usually all about sports - sports, sports, sports so this is all different. Dancing is really - I like singing so it's really a bonus. So to get to learn to dance and do ballet - it's really unique."

LIFTING WEIGHTS AND PLAYING VARSITY FOOTBALL - IT TAKE A PRETTY CONFIDENT YOUNG MAN TO BROADEN HIS HORIZONS THROUGH ACTING, SINGING, DANCING...AND MORE.

EC02: "Oh wow, I can stretch better 'cuz you gotta do the splits. I know. Guys aren't supposed to be able to do that. Every day I get more flexible and that will really help for football."

ARIANNA GLAUSTER IS A FOUR-YEAR MAPA VETERAN...HAVING APPEARED ON STAGE SINCE THE RIPE OLD AGE OF NINE.

Arianna Glauster, "Jet Girl"

AG01: " I was in Wizard of Oz, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, 101 Dalmations, and now West Side Story - so five."

SHE'S A JET GIRL IN THE CHORUS...AND SAYS SHE ENJOYS THE WORLD OF PERFORMING BECAUSE IT MAKES HER MORE CONFIDENT IN REAL LIFE.

AG02: "I think it helps me become more confident because I'm just up there on the stage and I don't think I can do it. Then I do it and that helps me be more confident."

AT SEABURY HALL, MILES KELSEY HAS APPEARED IN EVERY PLAY THAT'S COME ALONG WHILE HE'S ATTENDED THERE. HE ENJOYS THE EXPERIENCE AT MAPA BECAUSE

Miles Kelsey, Seabury Student,

MK01: "In these productions there's a lot more people doing it . At school it's always the same poeple, but at MAPA I always get to meet new people and make new friends."

AS A VETERAN OF MANY PERFORMANCES HIMSELF, MILES HAS FOUND THAT THE OLDER STUDENTS ACTUALLY HELP REHEARSALS ALONG AS MENTORS TO THE YOUNGER, NEWER PERFORMERS.

MK02: "During practices you can see it because the older kids will have more theater etiquette and can actually help the instructors and supervisors tone down the kids because they have even more of a peer-to-peer level of respect."

WHEN SHE FIRST AUDITIONED, ARIELLA BRANDON WANTED TO BE A SHARK,

Ariella Brandon, Jet

AB01: "At first I did because they get to have fun and be all 'Peurto Rican' and stuff, but now I like being a Jet."

THERE'S A THEORY THAT "ACTORS ARE INSECURE PEOPLE. BECAUSE IF THEY WEREN'T INSECURE, THEY WOULDN'T PERFORM."

aB03: "Actually, there's a lot of truth to that because one of my favorite things about acting is that you get to escape your life and enter someone else's. So I definitely think there's truth in that - not hiding so much but leaving your own body."

COMING ALL THE WAY FROM HANA, CODY ROGERS IS STAYING WITH FRIENDS IN PUKALANI DURING REHEARSALS. HE RECENTLY GRADUATED FROM HANA HIGH AND ELEMENTARY SCHOOL...AND WOUND UP IN THE SPOTLIGHT,

Cody Rogers, Hana High Graduate,

CR01: "I'm Tony - he's sort of the Romeo in Romeo and Juliet. The ex-leader of the Jets."

CODY SAYS THE LEAD ROLE IN WEST SIDE STORY IS A BIT DAUNTING, BUT THE SCARY PART IS BEHIND HIM.

CR02: "The auditions are probably the scariest part. Then there's that moment just before you walk out on stage. But I find that that goes away."

CODY SAYS THAT ONLY HAPPENS WHEN YOU KNOW YOUR PART - AND THAT HAPPENS WITH PRACTICE, PRACTICE PRACTICE...OR AS THEY SAY IN REHEARSAL - ABOUT A HUNDRED TIMES A DAY..."AGAIN." FROM THE MAPA STUDIO IN WAILUKU FOR MAUI TV NEWS, I'M JEFF KING.

(on-cam tag) I'LL HAVE MORE DETAILS ON SHOW TIMES LATER IN THIS WEEK'S EDITION OF MAUI TV NEWS. AND FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE MAUI ACADEMY FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS, VISIT OUR WEBSITE AND CLICK ON THE LINK TO THIS WEEK'S STORIES.

(Scrap Metals)(PiP-SoSMetals-CarCrush)

J: THE HANA HIGHWAY IS ALWAYS EXCITING WHEN BIG RIG TRUCKS SUDDENLY APPEAR AROUND HAIRPIN TURNS. WELL, FOR THE SIX MONTHS, MOTORISTS CAN EXPECT THAT EXCITEMENT ON AN ALMOST DAILY BASIS.

(VO) SOS METALS ISLAND RECYCLING WILL BE MOVING ABOUT FOUR THOUSAND TONS OF SCRAP METAL FROM THE HANA LANDFILL TO THEIR CENTRAL MAUI FACILITY FOR CRUSHING BEFORE SENDING IT OFF TO RECYCLERS. THE ACCUMULATED MATERIALS INCLUDE DERELICT VEHICLES, OLD TIRES, BROKEN APPLIANCES, DISCARDED PROPANE TANKS AND OTHER ASSORTED JUNK.

(on-cam) LARGE TRUCKS WILL BE TRANSPORTING THE LOADS WEEKDAYS ALONG THE HANA HIGHWAY STARTING THIS MONDAY. THE COUNTY DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT ASKS FOR YOUR KOKUA - AND YOUR PATIENCE, AS THE PROJECT MAY TAKE UP TO SIX MONTHS.

(Newt)(PiP-Newt)

HC: AS SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE UNDER PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON, WHEN NEWT GINGRICH TALKED...PEOPLE LISTEN. AND EVEN TODAY, AS MAUI TV NEWS REPORTER JEFF KING LEARNED - EVEN WHEN GINGRICH IS MAKING THINGS UP, PEOPLE STILL LISTEN.

(Take Newt Pkg)
NG01: "Days of Infamy" picks up after "Pearl Harbor." It answers the question, what would have happened if the Japanese Navy had sent their most risk-taking admiral, Yamamoto, to head the carrier fleet off of Pearl Harbor instead of Admiral Nagumo."

AND THAT'S WHERE IT STARTS. FORMER SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE NEWT GINGRICH HAS A PHD IN HISTORY - AS DO HIS TWO CO-AUTHORS. GINGRICH WAS ON MAUI THIS MONTH TO PROMOTE THE SECOND IN THE SERIES ON WARS IN THE PACIFIC. AND, AS HE TOLD THE OVERFLOW CROWD AT BORDERS BOOKS AND MUSIC IN KAHULUI, THERE IS A REASON HE CHOSE THIS SUBJECT.

NG02: "We chose to write about the Pacific wars because there's been so many books written on the European theater. But the next 50 years, China, India, Japan, Korea, Indonesia, the Phillipines, Australia - there's a ton of stuff going on in Asia and we wanted to find an interesting way and an exciting way to introduce people to the history of the region."

"DAY'S OF INFAMY" IS NOT A HISTORY BOOK, PER SE. IT IS A NOVEL - A NOVEL IN THE STYLE OF WHAT GINGRICH CALLS "ACTIVE HISTORY," THAT IS - ALTERNATIVE ENDINGS TO MAJOR CHAPTERS IN HISTORY THAT REALLY MIGHT HAVE HAPPENED GIVEN THE PERSONALITIES, TECHNOLOGIES AND TOOLS OF THE DAY. CALLISTA GINGRICH CAPTURED A FEW OF HIS EXPRESSIONS FOR THEIR ONGOING DOCUMENTARY WORK. IN FACT - AFTER MAUI, THE GINGRICHES WERE HEADING BACK TO FRANCE - WHERE THEY'RE PRODUCING A DOCUMENTARY ON THE BEACH AT NORMANDY.

THE CROWD OF ABOUT 80 SNAKED DOWN THE AISLES OF BORDERS - WAITING THEIR TURN FOR AN AUTOGRAPH - AND, IN MANY CASES, A PHOTO OP. THEN THERE WERE THE RESERVED COPIES FOR THE AUTHOR TO SIGN WHILE MRS. GINGRICH CHATTED WITH MANY WHO ATTENDED THE EVENT. AFTERWARDS, WE GOT A FEW MOMENTS WITH THE ARCHITECT OF "THE CONTRACT WITH AMERICA" TO GET HIS TAKE ON CONTEMPORARY HISTORY - MORE SPECIFICALLY ON WHICH OF THE CANDIDATES HE BELIEVES DOES THE BETTER JOB OF COMMUNICATING WITH AMERICA.

NG03: "There's no question that Obama is the better orator. The question is whether or not he is believable. Communication isn't just about how glib you are, but whether or not people believe you. But I think at times he gets too clever for himself and I think that weakens his believability."

GINGRICH, OF COURSE, IS ALSO A STUDENT OF CONTEMPORARY HISTORY AND IS LOOKING FORWARD TO READING THE NEXT CHAPTER.

NG03-B: "This will be a fascinating campaign because of the cobntrast in styles between an almost Harry Truman-like John McCain and sort of John F. Kennedy-like Obama and their fundamentally different styles. So it'll be interesting to watch come September and October."

IN FACT, HE SAID, HE COULDN'T HAVE SCRIPTED A MORE INTERESTING FINISH. REPORTING FROM KAHULUI FOR MAUI TV NEWS, I'M JEFF KING

(Toss to C Block)

J: UP NEXT IN SPORTS, IT'S TIME FOR HAWAIIAN TO FOCUS ON ONE MORE HISTORY-MAKING GOAL: ANOTHER STATE CANOE PADDLING CHAMPIONSHIP. KALAPANA HAS A LOOK AT THE NUMBERS UP NEXT - PLUS IMAGES FROM THIS WEEKEND'S PADDLEBOARD CHAMPIONSHIPS - IN SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS.

HC: THEN I'LL BE BACK WITH DETAILS ON DRAMA AND MUSIC UNDER THE STARS AS WELL AS NAKED ELVES IN LATEX GLOVES IN COMING ATTRACTIONS WHEN MAUI TV NEWS CONTINUES.

(sports) (PiP-Sports)

K: AN ANCIENT FORM OF INTER-ISLAND TRANSPORTATION IS DOWN TO TACTICS, STRATEGY AND SERIOUS CALCULATING IN THE 21ST CENTURY.

ALOHA EVERYONE AND WELCOME TO SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS. I'M KALAPANA.

HAWAIIAN CANOE CLUB'S UNPRECEDENTED 24TH STRAIGHT MAUI COUNTY HAWAIIAN CANOE ASSOCIATION CHAMPIONSHIP WAS LOCKED UP WEEKS AGO - BUT STILL THEY'VE BEEN ON TOP OF THEIR GAME TO GET OPTIMUM LANE ASSIGNMENTS AT THE STATE PADDLING CHAMPIONSHIP ON OAHU NEXT MONTH.

(FF-CG-VO) AT SATURDAY'S KAMEHAMEHA REGATTA HAWAIIAN EASILY CAPTURED FIRST WITH 136 POINTS. BUT LOOK AT HARD-CHARGING KIHEI! AFTER TRADING SECOND AND THIRD SPOTS WITH KAHANA ALL SEASON, THEY WALLOPED THE WEST-SIDERS FOR A VERY STRONG SECOND PLACE FINISH. LAE ULA O KAI ALSO HAD A STRONG FINISH. IN THE A DIVISION, HANA CONTINUED TO DOMINATE.

FOR THE SEASON, HAWAIIAN RACKED UP AN UNREAL 884 POINTS. KIHEI'S MONSTER FINISH LAST WEEK GAVE THEM THE SEASON'S EDGE OVER KAHANA WITH LAE ULA O KAI IN A SOLID FOURTH SPOT. HANA HAD A HUGE SHOWING IN THE FIRST YEAR OF M-C-H-C-A DIVISION A RACING.

(ON-CAM) SO, DOES THIS MEAN HAWAIIAN CAN JUST REST ON THEIR LAURELS? AU CONTRAIR MOAN FRAYER (feel free to change this). IN ADDITION TO THIS WEEKEND'S M-C-H-C-A CHAMPIONSHIP, H-C-C IS STILL HONING LANE POSITION AND TEAM STRATEGY.

THEIR BIGGEST THREAT AT STATE, YOU SEE, IS ALSO AN UNDEFEATED TEAM: LANIKAI OF O'AHU. LANIKAI'S CLUB HAS MORE THAN 500 MEMBERS, AND HAS QUALIFIED 38 CREWS FOR THE STATE RACES. ONE MORE THAN LAST YEAR. HAWAIIAN HAS QUALIFIED 32 CREWS...ALSO ONE MORE THAN LAST YEAR. THE DIFFERENCE? HAWAIIAN'S DOMINANCE IN THE TOUGH M-C-H-C-A HAS LANDED THEM NUMBER ONE SEEDS IN 26 OF THOSE 32 RACES...AND SECOND SEED IN THE OTHER SIX. THAT MEANS THEY'LL BE IN THE MOST FAVORABLE CONDITIONS AT KE'EHI LAGOON AUGUST SECOND TO CAPTURE YET ANOTHER STATE CROWN.

HAWAIIAN'S SECRET WEAPONS ARE NO SECRET, REALLY. THEIR YOUNG CREWS ARE ALMOST ALWAYS UNSTOPPABLE, AND THEY ARE AMAZINGLY CONSISTENT. IF THEY DON'T COME IN FIRST, YOU CAN BET THEY WON'T BE FAR BEHIND. AND WHEN YOU ADD UP A TON OF SECOND AND THIRD-PLACE FINISHES, IT ADDS UP TO A STATE CHAMPIONSHIP. AND THAT'S HOW HAWAIIAN CANOE CLUB WILL PROBABLY DO IT AGAIN THIS YEAR.

(VO-ff-cg) ALSO ON THE WATER THIS WEEKEND WAS THE THIRD ANNUAL NAISH MAUI INTERNATIONAL PADDLEBOARD CHAMPIONSHIPS. THE EVENT SUNDAY COVERED A NINE AND A HALF MILE COURSE DOWNHILL FROM MALIKO GULCH TO KAHULUI HARBOR. MANY THANKS TO BRUNO LEMOS FOR PROVIDING THESE IMAGES OF THE MEN AND WOMEN - AND ONE PADDLING TEAM THAT ALL COMPETED IN STANDUP AND UNLIMITED COMPETITION. FINISHING FIRST IN THE STANDUP DIVISION WAS BIG WAVE LEGEND AND MOVIE STAR DAVE KALAMA WHO COMPLETED THE COURSE IS JUST OVER ONE HOUR. FIRST FOR THE WOMEN IN THE UNLIMITED DIVISION WAS ANDREA MOLLER.
