A. J: IT'S ONE OF THE MOST HOTLY CONTESTED DEVELOPMENTS EVER ON MAUI, AND IT'S NOT OVER YET. WE'LL HAVE THE LATEST ROUND IN THE WAR OF WORDS OVER HONUA’ULA.

C: CONTRARY TO A STATEWIDE TREND, VISITOR NUMBERS ARE UP ON MAUI. BUT WHAT'S REALLY INTERESTING IS THAT HOTEL OCCUPANCY IS DOWN. WHERE IS EVERYBODY STAYING?

J: WHERE THEY'RE STAYING IS ANOTHER HOT ISSUE THIS WEEK...AND IT'S ONE THAT'S GOING TO BE MUCH DIFFERENT ISSUE A YEAR FROM NOW.

C: IN SPORTS, IT WAS TWISTED UP AND SERIOUS AT THE MAUI JIU JITSU OPEN TOURNAMENT, WHILE IT WAS WIDE OPEN AND FAST AT THE STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS OF WINDSURFING ON THE NORTH SHORE. KALAPANA HAS THE HIGHLIGHTS OF BOTH COMPETITIONS.

J: AND “HOW SWEET IT IS.” JULIE Y IS HERE TO PEEL BACK THE MYSTERY AND EXPOSE THE DETAILS OF THE MAUI ONION FESTIVAL COMING TO KA’ANAPALI. THAT AND MUCH MORE THIS WEEK ON MAUI TV NEWS.

(MauiBotulism)(PiP-CattleDrive)

C. J: TWO MAUI MEN FROM DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE ISLAND ARE RECOVERING FROM SYMPTOMS OF BOTULISM POISONING AFTER EATING CANNED CHILI PURCHASED FROM THE COSTCO STORE IN KAHULUI. KEITH REGAN OF WAILUKU WENT TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM AT MAUI MEMORIAL LAST FRIDAY AFTER EXPERIENCING SYMPTOMS ASSOCIATED WITH BOTULISM POISONING. WHEN ASKED, HE CONFIRMED THAT HE HAD EATEN THE SAME BRAND OF CHILI PURCHASED AT COSTCO THAT ALSO SICKENED A HANA MAN THE WEEK BEFORE.

WHILE REGAN SAID HIS SYMPTOMS WERE MORE LIKE AN EXTENDED VERSION OF THE FLU - AND DIDN'T LAND HIM IN THE HOSPITAL, IT WAS A DIFFERENT STORY FOR HANA RESIDENT JON STOCKTON. STOCKTON ATE THE TAINTED CHILI NOT ONCE - BUT TWICE BEFORE THE SYMPTOMS SET IN. AT FIRST, STOCKTON SAID, IT FELT LIKE HE HAD JUST COME FROM THE DENTIST BECAUSE HIS MOUTH WENT NUMB. SOON HE BECAME VIOLENTLY ILL AND WAS ADMITTED TO MAUI MEMORIAL LAST WEEK FOR A THREE-DAY STAY. HE WAS RELEASED LAST SATURDAY. BOTH MEN BOUGHT THE CHILI BEFORE THE RECALL WAS ANNOUNCED. REGAN SAID HE WAS NOT AWARE OF THE RECALL AND STOCKTON SAID HE HAD HEARD ABOUT THE RECALL, BUT DIDN'T THINK HE HAD PURCHASED ANY OF THE BAD PRODUCT.

AT LEAST FIVE OTHER PEOPLE ACROSS THE U.S. WHO ATE THE CATTLE DRIVE BRAND CHILI ALSO WERE TREATED FOR BOTULISM POISONING. SO FAR, FORTUNATELY, THERE HAVE BEEN NO DEATHS REPORTED FROM THE SCARE. COSTCO HAS PULLED THE PRODUCT FROM IT'S KAHULUI SHELVES. PARENT COMPANY, CASTLEBERRY FOODS OF AUGUSTA GEORGIA, HAS DETAILED A VOLUNTARY RECALL ON THEIR WEBSITE, AND LISTS EIGHTY-SIX BRANDS OF CHILI AND OTHER CANNED MEAT PRODUCTS, PLUS FOUR BRANDS OF CANNED DOG FOOD THEY PRODUCE, THAT SHOULD BE RETURNED TO RETAILERS OR THROWN AWAY. TO SEE THAT LIST, FOLLOW THE LINK FROM OUR WEBSITE AT MAUITVNEWS-DOT-COM.

(FF-CG-VO) THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL WARN THAT BOTULISM SYMPTOMS SHOULD BE TAKEN VERY SERIOUSLY BECAUSE, EVEN THOUGH RARE, THE DISEASE CAN BE FATAL. SYMPTOMS OF BOTULISM INCLUDE DOUBLE OR BLURRED VISION, DROOPING EYELIDS, SLURRED SPEECH, DIFFICULTY SWALLOWING OR MUSCLE WEAKNESS. IF LEFT UNTREATED, THE ILLNESS MAY PROGRESS FROM HEAD TO TOE, WITH PARALYSIS OF THE FACE AND ARMS, BREATHING MUSCLES, TORSO AND LEGS.

THE CDC SAYS THE SYMPTOMS GENERALLY BEGIN 18 TO 36 HOURS AFTER EATING A CONTAMINATED FOOD...BUT CAN OCCUR AS EARLY AS SIX HOURS OR AS LATE AS 10 DAYS.

(On-cam tag) FOR THE COMPLETE LIST OF RECALLED PRODUCTS - PLUS INSTRUCTIONS OF WHAT TO DO IF YOU HAVE PURCHASED ANY OF THEM - IS AVAILABLE BY FOLLOWING THE LINK FROM OUR WEBSITE AT MAUITVNEWS-DOT-COM.

(Freeman)(PiP - Freeman)

D. C: A WOMAN WHO USED TO LIVE ON MAUI HAS BEEN ARRESTED FOR REPEATEDLY HITTING HER CHILDREN ON AN AIRLINE FLIGHT, AND FOR INTERFERING WITH THE FLIGHT CREW.

(FF-CG-VO) TAMERA JO FREEMAN WAS TAKEN INTO CUSTODY AFTER A JULY SIXTEENTH FLIGHT BETWEEN SAN FRANCISCO AND DENVER AFTER ALLEGEDLY HITTING HER TWO YOUNG CHILDREN SEVERAL TIMES, AND FOR THREATENING A FLIGHT ATTENDANT WHEN SHE WAS ASKED TO STOP. FREEMAN LIVED ON MAUI UNTIL EARLIER THIS YEAR AND THIS ISN'T HER FIRST BRUSH WITH THE LAW.

(on-Cam) FREEMAN WAS FOUND GUILTY IN SECOND CIRCUIT COURT OF ABUSING HER KIHEI BOYFRIEND IN 2005. AFTER SERVING TWO DAYS IN JAIL, SHE WAS ON PROBATION. BUT THAT WAS REVOKED AFTER SHE VIOLATED THE TERMS OF PROBATION. SHE THEN SPENT ANOTHER THIRTY DAYS BEHIND BARS. EARLIER THIS YEAR, FREEMAN SPENT ANOTHER SIXTEEN DAYS IN JAIL FOR VIOLATING A COURT ORDER TO STAY AWAY FROM HER BOYFRIEND. HER TWO CHILDREN, A FOUR-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER AND TWO-YEAR-OLD SON, ARE STAYING WITH RELATIVES IN CALIFORNIA WHILE FREEMAN REMAINS IN A DENVER JAIL AWAITING THE OUTCOME OF HER CASE.


(Tease for B-Block)(2-shot)

E. J: COMING UP NEXT ON MAUI TV NEWS....THE UPS AND DOWNS OF THE VISITOR BUSINESS. MORE FOLKS ARE VISITING MAUI, AND THAT'S GREAT. BUT THE NUMBER OF HOTEL VACANCIES IS ALSO UP. HOW DOES THAT WORK?

C: ONE OF THE ANSWERS TO THAT QUESTION IS THE TOPIC OF ANOTHER CONTROVERSY. TRANSIENT VACATION RENTALS ARE ABOUT TO BE FORCED TO COMPLY WITH THE LAW, OR CLOSE UP SHOP. WE'LL TAKE A LOOK AT BOTH SIDES OF THAT ISSUE WHEN MAUI TV NEWS RETURNS. STAY WITH US.

(MVB)(PiP-Visitor Arrivals)


F. J: WHILE TOURISM NUMBERS ACROSS THE STATE SO FAR THIS SUMMER HAVE GENERALLY SIMMERED, THE NUMBERS ON MAUI CONTINUE TO SIZZLE...MOSTLY.

(SOT) (Terryl Vencyl, Executive Director, Maui Visitors Bureau)

TV01 "We're still holding pretty good. Total arrivals are up by 1.7 percent. Our expenditures are holding steady. Our total expenditures for the first half of the year are down a little bit. But our per person per day number is holding steady at $190 vs. the state average of $176."

THE IRONY HERE IS THAT WHILE MORE PEOPLE ARE COMING TO MAUI, HOTEL VACANCY RATES CONTINUE TO RISE. THE DIRECTOR OF THE MAUI VISITORS BUREAU TELLS MAUI TV NEWS THAT ONE OF THE MAJOR REASONS FOR THAT IS A RECENT SURGE IN NUMBERS OF VISITORS ARRIVING BY CRUISE SHIP. THOSE NUMBERS ARE UP 38 PERCENT SO FOR THIS YEAR.

tv02: "In addition to that, alternative accommodations such as transient vacation rentals, home rentals, B&Bs, time shares...those kinds of numbers are not reported the same way the hotel numbers are."

THE COMPANY THAT COLLECTS OCCUPANCY NUMBERS ACROSS HAWAII GETS DATA FROM MAJOR RESORTS AND HOTELS, BUT TYPICALLY NOT FROM SMALLER INNS OR INDIVIDUAL ACCOMMODATIONS. VENCYL SAYS THAT'S THE LIKELY FACTOR BEHIND THE APPARENT CONTRADICTION IN NUMBERS. SHE ALSO SAYS THE NUMBERS SUPPORT A TREND INDICATING A SOFTENING IN THE TOURISM INDUSTRY, NOT JUST ON MAUI, BUT GLOBALLY. BALLOON PAYMENTS ON CREATIVE MORTGAGES, RISING GAS PRICES, A STEADILY RISING FUEL SURCHARGE FOR FLIGHTS FROM JAPAN...ALL FACTORS BEYOND LOCAL CONTROL.

TV04: "When it comes, then, to how do they determine their accommodations - if they even take a vacation at all - then they're looking at all these different types of accommodations and they're not all choosing the traditional hotel experience."

WHILE THE ARRIVAL NUMBERS CONTINUE STRONG - PRIMARILY FROM THE US EAST COAST AND FROM CANADA - THE LARGEST DROP IS VISITS FROM JAPAN - DOWN 18 PER CENT THROUGH THE FIRST HALF OF THIS YEAR. VENCYL CITES THE RISING FUEL SURCHARGE AND THE LACK OF DIRECT FLIGHTS FROM JAPAN TO MAUI. ON THE UPSIDE, SHE POINTS TO THE RECENT SURGE IN RESORT RENOVATIONS AS A GOOD REASON FOR VETERAN VACATIONERS TO GIVE MAUI - AND ALL OF HAWAII - ANOTHER TRY TO SEE WHAT'S NEW.


(TVR CRACKDOWN) (PiP-TVR crackdown)

G. C: MANY SAY IT'S A NATURAL EVOLUTION. THE FACE OF TOURISM IS CHANGING. ECO-TOURISM, EQUI-TREKKING, AGRI-TOURISM ARE ALL NEW TERMS IN OUR LANGUAGE. LONG AHEAD OF ITS TIME, MAUI HAS ALWAYS HAD A WIDE SELECTION OF "OFF-THE-BEATEN-PATH" PLACES TO STAY AND THINGS TO DO FOR VISITORS. BUT ONE MAJOR ASPECT OF THAT IS ABOUT TO UNDERGO A MAJOR CHANGE. MAUI TV NEWS REPORTER JEFF KING BRINGS US THE DETAILS AS THE COUNTY PREPARES TO CRACK DOWN ON ILLEGAL VACATION RENTALS.

(Tease for C-Block)(2-shot)

H. J: COMING UP NEXT IN SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS, IT'S THE ANCIENT ART OF JIU JITSU - AND IT BROUGHT SOME SERIOUS GRAPPLING TO KAHULUI. AND THE MAUI RACING SERIES OF WINDSURFING WRAPS UP WITH THE STATE FINALS. KALAPANA WILL HAVE HIGHLIGHTS UP NEXT.

C: AND JULIE Y JOINS US AFTER THAT WITH THE RUNDOWN OF COMING ATTRACTIONS, INCLUDING DETAILS ON EVERYTHING YOU CAN DO WITH AND ONION, AND WHERE TO DO IT.

J: AND A LITTLE LATER ON MAUI TV NEWS, WE'LL BRING YOU THE STORY OF A "LONELY DOG" THAT - THE WAY THINGS ARE GOING - WON'T BE SO LONELY FOR MUCH LONGER. THAT AND MORE WHEN WE COME BACK. STAY WITH US.

(Sports!)

I. K. (on-cam) "BIKINIS THAT WORK." THE TITLE ALONE WOULD BE ENOUGH TO ATTRACT A CROWD...BUT IT WASN'T SWIMWEAR THAT DREW THE THRONGS TO KANAHA BEACH PARK. ALOHA EVERYONE AND WELCOME TO SPORTS! ON MAUI TV NEWS. I'M KALAPANA.

IT WAS THE "BIKINIS THAT WORK" HAWAII STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS OF WINDSURFING THAT CAPPED THE 23RD ANNUAL MAUI RACE SERIES. AND WHAT A YEAR IT WAS!

(vo) WHAT A DAY IT WAS, TOO. CLEAR BLUE SKIES ON A BEAUTIFUL TRADE WIND SATURDAY ON MAUI'S NORTH SHORE MADE FOR SOME POSTCARD SCENES AND BRAGGING RIGHTS FOR SOME OF THE BEST THE SPORT HAS TO OFFER. THE OVERALL TITLE OF THE DAY WENT TO PRO MATT PRITCHARD OF HAIKU WHO POCKETED A MODEST 350 DOLLARS FOR THE TOP SPOT. THE TOP WOMEN'S FINISHER OF THE DAY WAS KARLA AGUERA - EVEN THOUGH SHE HAD TO OVERCOME A MENTAL MISTAKE BY - LITERALLY - GOING THE WRONG WAY IN HER FIRST HEAT. SHE WENT ON TO WIN THE WOMEN'S OPEN DIVISION, AND TOOK HOME 200 DOLLARS FOR HER EFFORTS.

WHILE THERE WERE MANY EXCITING MOMENTS IN A COMPETITIVE SPORT THAT TRAVELS 25 TO 35 MILES AN HOUR WITHOUT AN ENGINE, MANY AGREE THAT THE HEAT OF THE DAY WAS THE FIRST ROUND IN THE MEN'S OPEN DIVISION. AFTER A GREAT START, ELEVEN BOARDS ROCKETED CROSS WIND TO THE FIRST BUOY. WHILE LEADERS ALEX AGUERA AND MICHAEL YASEK HAD GREAT TURNS, THE REST OF THE FIELD WOUND UP IN A WHIRLWIND EFFORT OF 10 SAILS...WITH PHIL MCGAIN COMING OUT OF IT FIRST. THAT TRIO TRADED POSITIONS THROUGHOUT A RACE THAT THRILLED THIS ENTHUSIASTIC CROWD. AGUERA MAKES A WIDE JIBE ON THE SECOND THAT ALLOWS YASEK TO PULL INTO THE LEAD WHILE THE EVER-PRESENT MCGAIN FOLLOWED PATIENTLY - WAITING TO MAKE HIS MOVE. LOOK AT THESE GUYS GO! TURN NUMBER THREE SEES MCGAIN PICKING OFF AGUERA TO MOVE INTO SECOND SPOT...A DANGEROUS PLACE FOR EVERYONE BUT MCGAIN, WHO ONLY HAS ONE MORE RACER TO BEAT. DOWNWIND TOWARD TURN NUMBER FOUR, WATCH AS MCGAIN ROCKETS UNDERNEATH YASEK TO SET HIMSELF UP FOR A TIGHT JIBE AROUND THE FINAL BUOY. IS IT ENOUGH TO GAIN THE ADVANTAGE OVER YASEK? NO!, BUT HER CERTAINLY TIGHTENS UP THE RACE AS THE TWO ROCKET TOWARD THE FINISH. YASEK TAKES A LINE TO TRY TO RUFFLE THE AIR, MAKING IT TOUGHER FOR MCGAIN TO ACCELERATE. MC GAIN TAKES A QUICK PUSH, THEN THE TWO RUN STRAIGHT DOWNWIND TO THE FINISH. IT IS MICHAEL YASEK WITH HIS FIRST WIN OF THE DAY. PHIL MCGAIN HOT ON HIS HEELS AND ALEX AGUERA FINISHES THIRD. AS THE CROWD ROARED ITS APPROVAL, THE ANNOUNCER SAID IT BEST, "IF YOU DON'T LIKE RACING, DON'T SHOW UP HERE!"

THAT TRIO BATTLED IT OUT TWO MORE TIMES IN THE MEN'S 40 TO 49 DIVISION, WITH PHIL MCGAIN TAKING THE SEASON TITLE, MIKE YASEK WAS SECOND AND ALEX AGUERA FINISHED THIRD.

(on-cam) MEANWHILE, AT THE SAME MOMENT, A TOTALLY DIFFERENT KIND OF SPORTING EVENT WAS TAKING PLACE NOT FROM FROM THE NORTH SHORE, DRAWING AN EQUALLY ENTHUSIASTIC CROWD.

(vo) THE FOURTH ANNUAL MAUI JIU-JITSU OPEN AT WAR MEMORIAL GYM DREW COMPETITORS FROM ACROSS HAWAII AND MANY FROM THE MAINLAND AS WELL. WHILE HUNDREDS OF FANS, FAMILY AND FRIENDS CHEERED THEM ON, SOME 250 PARTICIPANTS GRAPPLED AND STRATEGIZED, APPLYING WHAT THEY'VE LEARNED ABOUT THE ANCIENT FORM OF MARTIAL ARTS TO ANSWER - MORE THAN ONCE - THE QUESTION, "HOW WOULD YOU GET OUT OF THIS?" THERE WAS PLENTY OF ACTION IN A NON-STOP FORMAT WITH FOUR MATCHES GOING ON AT ONCE. THE GOAL: CONTROL YOUR OPPONENT BY DOMINATING, PINNING, IMMOBILIZING HIM. THE WATCHFUL EYE OF THE REFEREE AND THE CONSTANT COACHING FROM JUST INCHES AWAY MAKE THIS EVENT ALL THE MORE EXCITING. THE EVENT WAS CREATED BY LUIS HEREDIA, THE FOUNDING TEACHER OF THE MAUI JIU-JITSU ACADEMY IN HAIKU, HIMSELF A FIVE-TIME GOLD MEDALIST IN THE PAN-AMERICAN GAMES.

(on cam) AND BEFORE WE GO, A QUICK WORD OF CONGRATULATIONS TO AUSTRALIA'S JAMIE MITCHELL. MITCHELL WON THE QUICKSILVER MOLOKAI-TO-OAHU PADDLEBOARD RACE SUNDAY WITH A TIME OF FIVE HOURS, NINE MINUTES AND 34 SECONDS. A RECORD FIELD OF 135 ENTERED THE EVENT, SPANNING 32 MILES ACROSS THE KAIWI CHANNEL. MITCHELL'S WIN COMES ON THE HEELS OF HIS MOST RECENT VICTORY - JUST LAST WEEK, WINNING THE MAUI INTERNATIONAL, A NINE-POINT-FOUR MILE DOWNWIND PADDLEBOARD RACE FROM MALIKO GULCH TO KAHULUI HARBOR.
