J: WITH BARELY MORE THAN A WEEK TO GO, CANDIDATES AREN'T PULLING ANY PUNCHES AS THEY SQUARE OFF IN CROWDED RACES. AND, IT'S SACRED, EXCITING, AND COMING BACK TO LIFE. WE'LL TAKE YOU TO THE HALLOWED GROUND OF MOKU'ULA IN LAHAINA.

(ON-CAM) THOSE ARE TWO OF OUR TOP STORIES THIS WEEK ON MAUI TV NEWS - PLUS WITH JUST ABOUT FOUR MONTHS AGO TILL NO PLASTIC BAGS, WE'VE GOT SOME TIPS ON HOW TO PREPARE YOURSELF. IN SPORTS, MAUI'S BASEBALL TEAM IS THE BEST - REALLY. AND THE BALDWIN BEARS ARE, TOO. IN CURTAIN CALL, PAUL JANES-BROWN TAKES TO A BIENNIAL EVENT THAT WILL MAKE YOU WANT TO PLAN NOW FOR THE 20-12 DATE. WE'VE GOT ALL THAT PLUS COMING ATTRACTIONS AND MORE THIS WEEK ON MAUI TV NEWS.

(intro-FF)

J: ALOHA EVERYONE AND THANK YOU FOR WATCHING MAUI TV NEWS I'M JEFF KING - AND THIS IS MAUI'S EXCLUSIVE ONLINE AND TELEVISION NEWSCAST - IN HIGH DEFINITION. INCUMBENTS AND FORMER INCUMBENTS. NEWCOMERS AND VETERANS. THE RACE FOR MAYOR IS CROWDED. AND LAST FRIDAY'S FIRST FRIDAY CANDIDATE FORUM BROUGHT OUT A LITTLE OF THE BEST AND WORST IN MANY OF THEM.

(TAKE CANDIDATE FORUM PKG) ONE OBSERVER CALLED IT AN "ONLY ON MAUI" TYPE OF CANDIDATE FORUM. THERE WAS NEARLY NO BICKERING. THERE WAS AN ABSENCE OF SPARRING AND NOBODY NEEDED TO BE SEPARATED. THE MAUI YOUNG BUSINESS ROUNDTABLE SPONSORED THE EVENT - THAT DREW 10 OF THE 11 CANDIDATES RUNNING FOR MAYOR. EACH WAS GIVEN THREE MINUTES TO SELL THEMSELVES - THEN, LATER A TWOMINUTE OPPORTUNITY TO RESPOND TO WHAT THEY HEARD FROM THE OTHERS AND FINALLY A 30-SECOND FINAL PITCH.

THERE WERE FAMILIAR FACES AND BRAND NEW ONES. AND THE EVENING WASN'T COMPLETELY WITHOUT CONTROVERSY. FORMER MAYOR ALAN ARAKAWA CRITICIZED THE TAVARES ADMINISTRATION FOR SHUTTING DOWN THE TEMPORARY VACATION RENTAL BUSINESS AND ENFORCING SIGN ORDINANCES AT A TIME WHEN SMALL BUSINESS NEEDS MORE BREAKS THAN OVERSIGHT. MAYOR CHARMAINE TAVARES - WHO DEFEATED ARAKAWA IN THE LAST ELECTION - DEFENDED HER POSITION AND SAID THE PREVIOUS VIEW OF, SORT OF, DON'T ASK DON'T TELL, WAS SOMETHING OF A TICKING TIME BOMB.

THE ECONOMY WAS EMPHASIZED BY ALL 10 CANDIDATES - CLOS BEHIND WERE THE TOPICS OF JOBS, AFFORDABLE HOUSING, CLEAN ENERGY AND FOOD SECURITY.

IT WAS THE LAST MAJOR MAYORAL FORUM BEFORE NEXT SATURDAY'S PRIMARY - WHEN THE LIST OF 11 WILL BE WHITTLED DOWN TO TWO WHO WILL SQUARE OFF ON NOVEMBER SECOND TO STEER THE SHIP OF STATE OF THE COUNTY OF MAUI.

(ON-CAM TAG) NEXT TUESDAY AT THE IAO THEATER, GUBERNATORIAL CANDIDATES MUFI HANNEMANN AND NEIL ABERCROMBIE WILL SQUARE OFF. WE'VE GOT DETAILS IN COMING ATTRACTIONS A LITTLE LATER ON IN THIS NEWSCAST.

(MOKU'ULA)(PiP-KIHAWAHINE LOGO)

J: THERE ARE NO POISON DARTS OR STEVEN SPIELBERG SPECIAL EFFECTS, BUT THE ARCHEOLOGICAL WORK GOING ON IN LAHAINA RIGHT NOW IS EVERY BIT AS EXCITING TO THOSE INVOLVED AS ANYTHING INDIANA JONES EVER DID. MOKU'ULA, ONCE THE MOST SACRED AND IMPORTANT PLACE IN THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS - IS SLOWLY COMING BACK INTO VIEW.

(TAKE MOKU'ULA PKG) IMAGINE - TOUCHING HISTORY AT A SPOT WHERE KINGS WALKED. THIS IS SACRED GROUND.

COMPARING TO THE WORLD CLASS DISCOVERIES AT FAR OFF PLACES LIKE MACHU PICHU, PRINCIPAL SITE INVESTIGATOR DOCTOR JANET SIX, CAN'T BELIEVE SHE IS ORCHESTRATING THIS PROJECT. LITTLE DID SHE KNOW THAT WHEH SHE GRADUATED FROM MAUI COMMUNITY COLLEGE BACK IN 1985 A TIME LIKE THIS WOULD COME. NOW A PROFESSOR OF ANTHROPOLOGY WHO OBVIOUSLY BELIEVES IN HANDS-ON WORK, SIX SAYS SHE KNEW MOKU'ULA WAS HERE - BUT BURIED - AND NOT A POPULAR HANG-OUT SPOT FOR LOCALS EVEN WHEN THEY PUT IN A BALLPARK IN THE 60S.

Dr. Janet Six, PhD, Anthropologist, Site Principal Investigator

JS01: "It was a baseball field. It was a baseball diamond and people didn't like to play here because they knew it had bad juju on it. People talked about the island that was under here but you couldn't - you didn't know a lot about it. Lahaina was more known for the whaling days and the Hallowe'en Front Street debauchery - and that's changed over time."//

KALAPANA KOLLARS, STAR OF ULALENA, A MAUI TV NEWS SPORTS ANCHOR AND IN HIS SPARE TIME, TOUR GUIDE BECAUSE HE LOVES THIS PLACE SO MUCH, TOLD US IT TAKES THE BETTER PART OF HIS TWO-HOUR TO HAVE IT SINK IN TO FOLKS HOW ANCIENT AND IMPORTANT THIS PLACE IT.

Kalapana Kollars, Lahaina Expert,

KK01: "Many tourists and visitors alike are very astounded at the ancient history of Lahaina. Most people tout it as the 'Whaling Capitol of the Pacific.' Most folks don't realize that Lahaina's history goes back to the first human inhabitants that even came to these islands."

WITH THE RENAISSANCE OF THE HAWAIIAN CULTURE, LANGUAGE AND HISTORY THAT STARTED IN THE 1980S, MOKU'ULA BECAME IMPORTANT - VERY IMPORTANT. THEY'VE STUDIED ORAL AND ANY WRITTEN HISTORIES THEY COULD FIND - BUT THEY DID HAVE A GENUINE, SORT OF MODERN DOCUMENT TO USE AS THEIR GUIDE.

JS03: "The thing most people are going on - Bishop Museum started with this - the 1840 survey done by the Surveyor Monserrat. He was surveying all the lands for the Mahele. So he did a survey in 1940 and at that time Kamehameha III is living on the island. He got here in 1838 and stayed until 1846."

THE ANIMATED ANTHROPOLOGIST EXPLAINED THAT SCIENTIFIC AND CULTURAL INTEREST WASN'T ENOUGH TO RESURRECT THIS SACRED SPOT UNTIL BISHOP MUSEUM STEPPED UP AND COMMISSIONED THE FIRST DIG.

JS03-b: "The premise of the 1993 Bishop Musieum dig was to determine 'Is it here?' and then, was it intact. People say , well it's buried - out of sight out of mind. How can we restore how much was left? So their initial excavataion we call phase One. They did vertical excavations to determine the limits of the island and where the cultural deposits stopped - and also the edges of the island."

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. THE 1840 SURVEY WAS ACCURATE ENOUGH THAT THE 1993 DIG CAME DOWN RIGHT ON ANCIENT BASALT ROCK WALLS ON ONE SIDE OF THE ISLAND AND - ON THE MAUKA SIDE OF THE ISLAND - A SPRUCE WOOD PIER THAT HAD BEEN DESCRIBED IN ORAL HISTORIES. IT'S SAID KINGS WOULD LAUNCH FROM THIS VERY SPOT ON WA'A - OR CANOES - TO TRAVEL ACROSS THE POND AND THROUGH CANALS AS FAR AWAY AS THE PRESENT LAHAINA HARBOR. YES, POSSIBLY, THIS VERY PIER IS ONE FROM WHICH KAMEHAMEHA THE THIRD STEPPED INTO HIS CANOE.

THE POND BECAME STAGNANT IN THE LATE 1800S WHEN SUGAR PLANTATIONS DIVERTED WATER AND THE REMAINING WATER SAT. IN 1914 DEVELOPERS FILLED IN THE POND WITH DIRT, CORAL, ROCKS AND DEBRIS. IT WAS SOMETHING OF A BLESSING IN DISGUISE BECAUSE IT PRESERVED MUCH OF THE ISLAND UNTIL IT COULD BE RE-DISCOVERED.

SHIRLEY ANN KAHA'I HAS BEEN INVOLVED WITH THE DIG AT THIS SACRED SINCE 2001. SHE EXPECTS THEY WILL FIND BURIALS HERE.

Shirlery Ann Kaha'i, Acting Exec. Dir., Friends of Moku'ula.

SK01: You know, I hope not but I'm anticipating that we may and if we do we know the proper protocol that we need to follow with that."

PART OF THE MANA OF THE POND AND ISLAND OF MOKU'ULA IS THE MO'O AKUA SAID TO RESIDE THERE. A MO'O AKUA IS A LIZARD GOD - OR IN THIS CASE - GODDESS, THE DEIFIED REINCARNATION OF KIHAWAHINE. AND THIS ISN'T THE ONLY PLACE SHE LIVES.

JS04: "She is the goddess of 'wai kai'' the mixing of fresh and saltwater. She travels through a series of lava tubes to Kanaha - Kanaha Pond, and all the way out to Hamoa. That's kinda' her realm. She also travels to Moloka'i."//

SIX EXPLAINED THAT THE TRAVELS OF MO'O AKUA KIHAWAHINE DEFINE THE HYDROLOGY OF THE ISLAND OF MAUI AND WAIKAI WAS A SYMBOL OF WEALTH AND TREMENDOUS POWER.

JS05: "So you couldn't block the path of Kihawahine. She was very, very powerful. Canoes that would go by had to lower their sails and bow when they passed by the island. Her statue had to be moved at night because a shadow cast on you be enough to have you put to death. And she's buried here. And this is a living culture so we believe she's alive and well and underneath Moku'ula."

IN SIX MONTHS OF DIGGING, THE TEAM OF STUDENTS AND VOLUNTEERS HAVE CLEARED SEVERAL UNIT, ONE-METER-SQUARE PATCHES OF GROUND, CAREFULLY MAPPED AND LOGGED. SOME ARE DEEPER THAN OTHERS AND THE LAYERS OF EACH STAGE OF THE HITORY OF MOKU'ULA BECOME CLEAR WITH EACH TROWEL-SCRAPE. BY FAR THE MOST SIGNIFICANT FIND IS THE EDGE OF THE PIER -WITH FRESH WATER STILL COURSING BELOW IT. IN FACT THERE'S SO MUCH WATER THAT NEARBY 505 FRONT STREET HAS TO PUMP THE FRESH WATER FROM BELOW THEIR BELOW-GROUND PARKING LOT TO KEEP IT FROM FLOODING. THE FRESH WATER FLOWS TO THE OCEAN.

OUR PEEK AT HISTORY IS OVER FOR NOW. USING THE BEST-PRACTICES METHOD PRESCRIBED BY BISHOP MUSEUM THE TEAM CREATES AN OXYGEN-DEPRIVED MULTI-LAYER CONDITION TO PRESERVE THE PIER WHILE THE REST OF THE PROJECT GOES ON. SIX IS BEYOND EXCITED AT WHAT THEY MAY FIND NEXT. AND SHE'S DELIGHTED THAT ALL THAT HAPPENED IN 1914 WAS FILLING IN THE POND.

JS06: "They filled it in. They didn't build a hotel on top of it. They didn't put septic tanks into it. So we believe the majority of the island is largely intact. You can see in the dig we have 1960s intrusions from a baseball field bleachers going in - but as you come down on the surface the surface seems to be laregly intact. So what we're hoping that - from these 24 square meters, we have a pretty good indication that Moku'ula is ready to be restored and is lying just underneath the fill."

SIX FIGURES THAT - BASED ON THEIR CURRENT TEAM SIZE, AND WITH A PROJECTED INFLUX OF ANTHROPOLIGISTS, ARCHEOLOGISTS AND MORE FROM THE LIKES OF STANFORD, BROWN, HARVARD AND NEW YORK UNIVERSITIES, THE POND COULD BE COMPLETELY EXPOSED AND THE ISLAND UNEARTHED WITHIN FIVE YEARS. THEN THE RESTORATION WORK BEGIN. BUT THAT'S ANOTHER PROJECT ENTIRELY. SHIRLEY ISN'T REALLY WATCHING THE CLOCK - OR THE CALENDAR.

SK03: "You know we really don't have a timeline. With the Hawaiian culture, things as they need to happen and when it needs to happen, so I'm hoping that it will happen in my lifetime, but I'm 58 years old, so I don't really know."

THIS HAS BEEN A ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME EXPERIENCE FOR HER AND - FOR A TIME, SHE DIDN'T EVEN KNOW IT.

SK02: "About three years ago we were having a meeting and I asked my boss at that time, Akoni Akana, I said, I wonder what my legacy will be and he said 'Duh!' And I said, I know. It is quite a legacy to leave behind - just to be involved with it."//

AND IT'S A RICH TREASURE RIGHT HERE ON OUR PRECIOUS ISLAND, KU'U HOME O MAUI.

(ON-CAM TAG) YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE A DEGREE IN ANTHROPOLOGY TO GET YOUR FINGERNAILS DIRTY - JUST A DESIRE TO TAKE PART IN A MOST HISTORICAL EVENT. FOR DETAILS ON HOW TO GET INVOLVED, GO TO MAUI TV NEWS DOT COM AND FOLLOW THE LINK TO THIS WEEK'S STORIES.

(BYO BAG WEB PAGE)(PiP-PU'UOPALA)

J: NOW TO MAUI NEI - 21ST CENTURY. IN JUST OVER FOUR MONTHS, PLASTIC BAGS WILL NO LONGER BE OFFERED A BY LOCAL MERCHANTS.

MAUI COUNTY ORDINANCE 35-87 WILL TAKE EFFECT ON 1-11-11, AN EASY-TO-REMEMBER DATE. SINCE THEY FIRST STARTED USING THEM IN 1977, PLASTIC BAGS HAVE OUTNUMBERED PAPER BAGS AS THE SHOPPERS CHOICE BY FIVE TO ONE. NOW SOMEWHERE BETWEEN 500 BILLION AND A TRILLION PLASTIC BAGS ARE USED EACH YEAR, WORLDWIDE. THEY'RE LIGHT, STURDY, AND THEY BLOW ALL OVER THE PLACE - INCLUDING INTO THE OCEAN WHERE THEY CAN CHOKE SEA LIFE - LIKE TURTLES AND SEA BIRDS - WHO MISTAKE THEM FOR FOOD.

(FF-CG-VO) MAUI COUNTY HAS DEVELOPED A WEB PAGE WITH SOME GOOD ADVICE AS WE ALL FACE THE INEVITABLE, INCLUDING THEIR TOP 10 B-Y-O-B TIPS.

1. PUT "BRING SHOPPING BAG" AT THE TOP OF YOUR SHOPPING LIST.
2. BRING AN EXTRA REUSABLE BAG AND - AS A GESTURE OF ALOHA - GIVE IT TO SOMEONE WHO DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THE BAN. ASK THEM TO PAY IT FORWARD BY DOING THE SAME THING.
3. BAGS ARE GETTING MORE CREATIVE. GIVE YOUR FRIENDS REUSABLE BAGS AS GIFTS.
4. SET A GOOD EXAMPLE STARTING NOW BAY SAYING NO TO SINGLE-USE BAGS.
5. KEEP YOUR REUSABLE BAG IN THE FRONT SEAT SO YOU REMEMBER TO GRAB IT WHEN YOU GET OUT OF THE CAR AT THE STORE.
6. KEEP A BAG IN YOUR PURSE OR BRIEFCASE.
7. REMEMBER TO PUT THE REUSABLE BAGS BACK IN YOUR CAR FOR NEXT TIME.
8. KEEP A BAG AT THE OFFICE OR IN YOUR LOCKER AT THE GYM.
9. HANG A BAG ON YOUR GARAGE DOOR OR FRONT DOOR KNOB TO REMIND YOU.
10. PROMISE YOUR LOVED ONES A STORE BROUGHT TREAT FOR BEING RESPONSIBLE AND USING A REUSABLE BAG.

(ON-CAM) EACH YEAR AMERICANS USE AND TOSS SOME 30 MILLION PLASTIC BAGS. THAT TAKE 12 MILLION BARRELS OF OIL TO MAKE THEM. IF EVERYONE IN THE U.S. TIED THEIR ANNUAL CONSUMPTION OF PLASTIC BAGS TOGETHER IN A GIANT CHAIN, IT WOULD REACH AROUND THE EARTH 670 TIMES. AND STARTING 1-11-11, WE HERE IN MAUI COUNTY GET TO BECOME PART OF THE SOLUTION.

(A-TOSS-B)

J: UP NEXT ON MAUI TV NEWS, THEY CAME A VERY LONG WAY TO SWIM A VERY LONG WAY. WE'LL TALK TO SOME OF THE COMPETITORS FROM LAST WEEKEND'S MAUI CHANNEL SWIM. AND WE'LL INTRODUCE YOU TO A LOVELY LADY WHO IS CELEBRATING A BIRTHDAY THIS WEEK THAT MOST OF US ONLY DREAM ABOUT. THOSE STORIES AND MORE WHEN MAUITVNEWS CONTINUES.

(B-BLOCK)

(MAUI CHANNEL SWIM) (PiP-MONK SEAL)

J: THE WATERS SURROUNDING THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS ARE WARM AND INVITING. AND THEY'RE HOME TO THE MOST ENDANGERED SEAL IN THE UNITED STATES - THE HAWAIIAN MONK SEAL. LAST SATURDAY, ONE OF THE TEAMS COMPETING IN THE VERY ROUGH WATERS OF THE ANNUAL MAUI CHANNEL SWIM CAME TO THE WARM WATERS HERE - AND EVERY STROKE WAS DEDICATED TO PRESERVING THOSE PRECIOUS MONK SEALS.

(TAKE CHANNEL SWIM VO-SOT) FROM HERE IT LOOKS PRETTY CLOSE - THANKS TO A GOOD HIGH DEFINITION ZOOM LENS - BUT DON'T KID YOURSELF, WHEN YOU ZOOM OUT - IT'S STILL NINE MILES FROM LANA'I TO KA'ANAPALI - YHE COIURSE FOR THE 20-10 MAUI CHANNEL SWIM. SIXTY NINE INDIVIDUALS AND TEAMS JOINED FORCES TO BRAVE THE UNPREDICTABLE CONDITIONS. ONE OF THOSE TEAMS - IN ADDITION TO TRYINTG TO GET THEIR FIRST, WAS ALSO ON MAUI TO DO SOMETHING FIRST. THE MARINE MAMMAL CENTER OF SAUCELITO, NICKNAMED THE MONK SEALS, CAME WITH FIRE IN THEIR BELLIES AND A FEW BUCKS IN THEIR WATERPROOF WALLETS.

Marjorie Boor, Volunteer, The Marine Mammal Center

MB01: "We're raising funds for a facility at Kailua-Kona to invest - long-term - in basically savings the species.They're declining at a rate of four percent per years and they're th most endangered piniped in the United States right now."

Nancy Levine, Aquatic Biologist II, Steinhart Aquarium

NL01: "Our number is 11,000 dollars - that's our fundraising goal for this particular kickoff campaign to build the satellite center in Kona for the Monk Seals. And that's just representative of the 11-hundred monk seals that are left in this Hawaiian Island population ."

THEY COULD HAVE HAD A BAKE SALE, OR GONE DOOR-TO-DOOR, BUT NOPE - THEY'VE CHOSEN THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED - OR, THE SHANNEL LESS SWUM.

mb02: "We are going to be doing the Lana'i to Maui swim tomorrow - the Maui Channel Swim . There's a team of six of us from the Bay Area with different scientific interests in connection to the center. We've all come together to come here. And people are sponsoring us to raise money for the Monk Seal Project."

BOTH SWIMMERS ARE VETERANS OF THIS RACE - BUT BOTH SWIMMERS ARE ALSO KEEN OBSERVERS OF SEA LIFE. WE ASKED NANCY IF SHE GETS DISTRACTED BY COOL THINGS SHE SEES IN THE WATER WHILE SHE SHOULD BE CONCENTRATING ON HER STROKES.

NLO2: "I do. In fact I was doing a warm-up swim in Hilo yesterday and it wasn't very fast, I was getting too distracted. But the Maui Channel here it's so peaceful and so blue and so deep - hopefully we won't see too much."

THEIR TEAM FINISHED A RESPECTABLE FIFTH IN THE WAHINE DIVISION WITH AN OVERALL TIME OF SEVEN AND A HALF HOURS. THEY DIDN'T COME TO MAUI TO WIN PLACE OR SHOW - JUST TO SHOW UP AND TAKE A GIANT LEAP TOWARD SAVING ILIO-HOLO-I-KA-UAUA O HAWAII, THE HAWAIIAN MONK SEAL.

(ON-CAM TAG) THEY RAISED MORE THAN THEIR TARGET 11,000 DOLLARS TOWARD THE MONK SEAL FACILITY IN KONA. THE FINAL TALLY WAS 17, 895 DOLLARS. IF YOU'D LIKE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE MARINE MAMMAL CENTER AND THE MONK SEAL HEALTH CARE FACILITY PLANNED FOR THE BIG ISLAND, JUST GO TO MAUI TV NEWS-DOT-COM AND FOLLOW THE LINK TO THIS WEEK'S STORIES.

(100 YEA-OLD LADY)(PiP-BEATRICE NEFF)

J: IN HAWAIIAN THE WORD IS HANELE. ONE HUNDRED. AND THERE'S A LADY IN SOUTH MAUI WHO IS CELEBRATING THAT MANY CANDLES ON HER BIRTHDAY CAKE THIS WEEK.

(TAKE NEFF PKG) A BEAUTIFUL YOUNG WOMAN - ENJOYING LIFE IN A SIMPLER TIME, LONG, LONG AGO. NOW LIFE FOR BEATRICE NEFF IS SIMPLE AGAIN IN THE PAMPERED SURROUNDINGS OF KALAMA HEIGHTS RETIREMENT COMMUNITY IN KIHEI. BALLONS, BANNERS AND THE CAKE LEFT NO DOUBT - TODAY WAS SPECIAL ON WEDNESDAY, BEA CELEBRATED HER 100TH BIRTHDAY.

BEA'S COUSIN, JO ANN MOORE, DESCRIBED HER YOUTH AROUND HER OLDER COUSIN - INCLUDING THE EXCITING DAYS WHEN BEA AND HER HUSBAND, BOB - A WRITER AND TELEVISION PRODUCER, WOULD HOP FROM CONTINENT TO CONTINENT - SORT OF THE JET SET -EXCEPT THEY DIDN'T HAVE JETS YET.

Jo Ann Moore, Cousin

JM01: "They traveled all over the world. They were always gone. They were always in New York, or Paris for the weekend, or things you'd dream about. They'd tell us about what they were going to do on the weekend and we'd drool. And then we'd go to their house and they would have actors and actresses there and Hollywood people and, of course we were like "gape)."

John Male, Friend, Caregiver

John01: "Well, she's a character - always was a character. Well, I think - the first introduction was she whacked on the leg with her cane."

MALE, A PHYSICAL THERAPIST, GAINED BEA'S CONFIDENCE AND HAS SERVED AS A CAREGIVER SINCE 1997. IT TOOK A WHILE TO GET BEA OUT OF THE HOUSE AFTER HER HUSBAND PASSED, AND JOHN TOLD OF AN INCIDENT THAT PROVED JUST HOW LONG SHE'S BEEN SOMETHING OF A RECLUSE.

John02: "One of the first things we did was to go to McDonalds and get a hamburger - which was a dollar. And she had been in her condo for so long that she asked me how much was the hamburger and I told her a dollar. And she said, 'a dollar!? Cut it in half!'"

WHEN SOMEONE REACHES A MILESTONE LIKE A CENTURY OF LIFE, REPORTERS SELDOM RESIST THE URGE TO ASK THEIR SECRET OF LONGEVITY. THE ANSWER DOES NOT COME EASY.

JM02: "No, because she says, no it's not my birthday. And I said, but you're 100. 'No I'm not.' (so, denial is the scret) Yeah, that's the secret. You lie."

JOHN AND JO ANN SAY BEA'S LONG-TERM MEMORY IS AS SHARP AS EVER AS SHE RECALLS HER DAYS AMONG THE ROOSEVELTS, THE WRIGLEYS AND STARS LIKE JOHN WAYNE. AND HER HUSBAND BOB WAS AN ACQUAINTANCE OF AMELIA EARHART.

REALIZING THAT 100 CANDLES MIGHT BE A FIRE HAZARD, KALAMA HEIGHTS MANAGER SUZANNE ANTONIN SETTLED ON ONE CANDLE PER DECADE AND - AFTER ANOTHER VERSE OF HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BEATRICE NEFF AND HER FAMILY NOW GET TO EMBARK ON THE NEXT HUNDRED YEARS.

(ON-CAM TAG) JUST TO GIVE AN IDEA OF HOW LONG 100 YEARS IS, BEATRICE HAS BEEN ALIVE FOR 12-HUNDRED MONTHS, WHICH IS 5,218 WEEKS AND THAT'S 36,525 DAYS, OR MORE THAN THREE BILLION SECONDS. THAT'S A LOTTA TICKS.

(PARIS HILTON) (PiP-PARIS)

J: BY NOW YOU'VE LIKELY HEARD THAT PARIS HILTON WAS ARRESTED FOR ALLEGEDLY HAVING A BAGGIE OF COCAINE IN HER PURSE LAST WEEK IN LAS VEGAS. THE HEIRESS IS ALSO ACCUSED OF GETTING SPECIAL TREATMENT IN JAIL - BEING BOOKED, PROCESSED AND RELEASED ON HER OWN RECOGNIZANCE IN ABOUT THREE HOURS. PROSECUTORS SAY GOOD RIDDANCE. THE PAPARAZZI OUTSIDE THE JAIL AND THE CURIOUS INMATES WERE SUCH A DISTRACTION THAT POLICE BUSINESS BOGGED DOWN, SO THEY PROCESSED HER AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE.

SO, WHAT DO YOU DO IF YOU'RE AN HEIRESS WHO JUST WENT THROUGH ALL THAT TRAUMA? GO TO MAUI. HILTON WAS SPOTTED IN A KAPALUA RESTAURANT WITH FRIENDS LAST FRIDAY MORNING. A CONFIDENTIAL SOURCE TOLD US SHE WAS BEHIND HER TRADEMARK BUG-EYE BIG SUNGLASSES AND ENJOYED A LITTLE BIT OF JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING ON THE MENU.

AND THAT IS YOUR EXTREMELY RARE STAR SIGHTING REPORT ON MAUI TV NEWS.

(B-TOSS-C)

J: UP NEXT IN SPORTS, THEY ARE THE BEST IN THE BIZ. MAUI'S BOYS OF SUMMER SET A RECORD FOR WINS IN THE GOLDEN BASEBALL LEAGUE AND IT'S PLAYOFF TIME. AND THE BALDWIN BEARS GOT SOME NEW GRASS STAINS IN THEIR FIRST WIN OF THE SEASON LAST SATURDAY. DETAILS UP NEXT, AND - IN CURTAIN CALL - PAUL JANES BROWN TAKES IN THE ALMOST OVERWHELMING EXPERIENCE OF ULUWEHI GUERRERO'S CONCERT. WE'LL HAVE HIS REVIEW, PLUS COMING ATTRACTIONS AND MORE WHEN WE COME BACK.

(C-BLOCK)

J: CHECKING SPORTS, CONGRATULATIONS TO MAUI'S PRO BASEBALL TEAM, NA KOA IKAIKA MAUI ON WINNING THEIR DIVISION WITRH THE BEST RECORD IN THE GOLDEN BASEBALL LEAGUE. IN FACT, THEY SET A GOLDEN BASEBALL LEAGUE RECORD OF 56 WINS IN THE REGULAR SEASON. THAT WRAPPED UP IN A WILD ONE MONDAY NIGHT WITH A DIZZYING 16-15 WIN OVER THE ORANGE COUNTRY FLYERS, WHO END UP A GAME AND A HALF BEHIND NA KOA FOR THE YEAR. IT LOOKED GRIM FOR THE MAUI BOYS OF SUMMER WHEN THEY HAD A 15-7 LEAD GOING INTO THE NINTH INNING - ONLY TO SEE THE FLYERS SCORE EIGHT RUNS IN THE TOP OF THE NINTH. IT ALL ENDED ON A SCORE OFF A WILD PITCH AND NA KOA TOOK THE GAME. THIS WEEK THEY FACE THE FLYERS IN THE SOUTH DIVISION PLAYOFFS. THE PLAYOFFS CONTINUE THIS WEEKEND BETWEEN THOSE TWO TEAMS IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA.

AND IN MAUI INTERSCHOLASTIC LEAGUE FOOTBALL, THE BALDWIN BEARS PICKED UP WHERE THEY LEFT OFF LAST YEAR - WITH A BIG WIN. THE BEARS BLANKED KING KEKAULIKE LAST SATURDAY NIGHT BY A CONVINCING FINAL SCORE OF 25 TO NOTHING. THIS WEEK THE BEARS FACE KAMEHAMEHA MAUI FRIDAY NIGHT AT 7 AT WAR MEMORIAL STADIUM. SATURDAY NIGHT NA ALI'I HOST THE MAUI HIGH SABERS AT WAR MEMORIAL - ALSO AT 7 P.M.

(CURTAIN CALL)(PiP - PJB)

J: DOUBLE NA HOKU HANO HANO AWARD WINNER ULUWEHI GUERRERO PUT ON HIS BIENNIAL CONCERT AT THE CASTLE THEATER LAST SATURDAY NIGHT. PAUL JANES-BROWN WAS ONE OF THE LUCKY TICKET HOLDERS AND HAS THIS REVIEW…

PJB: THE ART WORLD HAS SOME EVENTS SO BIG THAT THEY ONLY HAPPEN EVERY TWO YEARS. THE VENICE BIANNALE, THE WHITNEY MUSEUM AND LONDON BIENNIALS ARE A FEW NOTABLE ART CELEBRATIONS THAT COME TO MIND. ADD TO THESE MAUI’S OWN ULUWEHI GUERRERO BIENNIAL CONCERT. LESLIE GRANAT SAID IT BEST, “IF THERE WERE EVER A WAY TO LET THE WORLD KNOW EXACTLY WHAT HAWAI`I IS ALL ABOUT…THE REAL INNER CORE OF ITS PEOPLE AND ITS EXISTENCE AND PERPETUATION…IT WOULD BE TO LET EVERYONE ON THIS PLANET EXPERIENCE ULUWEHI’S 2010 GALA EXTRAVAGANZA, ‘SONGS OF MY HEART.’”

SHE GOES ON TO SAY, “THE PAGEANTRY, SPLENDOR, COSTUMES, STAGING, DANCING, MUSIC, STORIES, FLOWERS, SCENTS ARE MUCH MORE SATISFYING THAN A BROADWAY MUSICAL.”

AMEN LESLIE, LIKE A SINGING BUDDHA DOUBLE NA HOKU HANO HANO AWARD WINNER ULUWEHI GUERRERO SAT IN THE OF CENTER STAGE ON A RAISED PLATFORM WHILE MORE THAN 150 MEMBERS OF HIS HALAU, HULA KAU LUO KALA, NEARLY 40 MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY CHOIR NA LEO LANI O MAUI, THE KAULUPONO CHAMBER ENSEMBLE, MAUI TAIKO AND MEMBERS OF HIS BAND SPUN AN ENCHANTED WEB OF EXCEPTIONAL ENTERTAINMENT FOR THE STANDING ROOM ONLY CROWD.

IT IS READILY APPARENT WHY THIS SHOW CAN ONLY BE DONE EVERY TWO YEARS. IT TAKES THAT LONG FOR EVERYONE TO LEARN HIS OR HER PART FROM THIS SINGULARLY AMAZING KUMU HULA. THE 2 AND A HALF HOUR SHOW HAD 26 NUMBERS AND 24 OF THE NUMBERS HAD HULA. MOST OF THE NUMBERS FEATURED THE ENTIRE STAGE COVERED WITH DANCERS.

ULUWEHI’S HALAU FEATURES ALL AGES AND HIS YOUTH GROUP, PAPA PUA MALIA, DANCED WITH ENERGY AND EXCELLENCE IN THREE SEPARATE NUMBERS USING ‘ULI ‘ULI, IPU, AND PU`ILI. AS THE DANCES PROGRESSED THE BEAT ACCELERATED UNTIL THE SKIRTS WERE FLYING BACK AND FORTH AND THE MUSIC HAD REACHED A FEVERISH PITCH.

THERE WERE SO MANY GREAT MOMENTS IT’S DIFFICULT TO CATALOG THEM ALL WITHOUT LEAVING SOMETHING OUT. THE ONES THAT STICK OUT WERE THE AWARD WINNING MEN'S FLY SWATTER NUMBER ( YOU HAD TO BE THERE), THE TOUCHING QUEEN LILIOKULANI DEDICATION, THE HUMOROUS GIANT EEL AND THE KIDS OPAE E , A HEART STOPPING PERFORMANCE BY MAUI TAIKO (WHO ARE MOSTLY YOUNG WOMEN) AND THE LOVELY FAN DANCE BY LYNN ARAKI REGAN TO ULU’S BEAUTIFUL HOMAGE TO THE CHERRY BLOSSOM NANI KAMAKURA.

I LOVED THE USE OF THE STAGE LIFT TO GREAT DRAMATIC EFFECT IN THE SECOND ACT AND WHEN THEY BROUGHT THE GIANT EEL UP IN THE FIRST ACT. THE BEAUTY OF THE STAGING WAS ENHANCED BY A MOST UNUSUAL USE OF BARRY PONO FRIED’S PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEO, IN THE FIRST ACT. THESE WERE PROJECTED ON WHITE DRAPES BEHIND ULUWEHI. IT WAS AN INNOVATIVE IDEA I EXPECT OTHERS TO EMULATE.

MY FAVORITE OF THE NIGHT WAS A WONDERFUL HULA PALUA, WHICH MEANS HULA BY TWOS. PERFORMED BY THREE COUPLES, IT WAS SUCH A LOVELY ROUTINE, THE INTERPLAY BETWEEN THE COUPLES AND THE GENTLE, ALMOST HESITANT TOUCHES WERE SO REFRESHINGLY TENDER.

I WOULD BE REMISS IF I DID NOT MENTION THE FINE CONTRIBUTIONS OF NA LEO LANI O MAUI THE EXCELLENT CHOIR THAT ACCOMPANIED MANY OF THE NUMBERS TO MARVELOUS EFFECT. UNDER THE ABLE LEADERSHIP OF MR. GALE WISEHART THIS POLISHED ENSEMBLE ADDED ANOTHER SINGULAR TOUCH TO THIS ONLY ON MAUI EVENT. .

MY ONLY DISAPPOINTMENT IS THE CHOICE OF THE DATE FOR THIS SHOW. I WISH ULUWEHI WOULD CONSIDER HOLDING IT LATER IN THE SEASON WHEN THE SNOW BIRDS ARE HERE. THEN HE COULD EASILY FILL THE CASTLE THEATER FOR TWO SHOWS AND LESLIE GRANAT’S WISH THAT EVERYONE COULD SEE THIS SHOW WILL BE MOVED ANOTHER STEP TOWARD FULFILLMENT. WE ARE COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS TILL THE 2012 SHOW. IT IS WELL WORTH WAITING FOR. MAHALO NUI LOA ULUWEHI. HANA HOU!

THAT’S CURTAIN CALL FOR THIS WEEK, A HUI HOU AND GO OUT AND SEE THE LIVE PERFORMERS WE HAVE HERE ON THE GREATEST ISLAND IN THE WORLD, THEY ARE AS WORLD CLASS AS IS THIS PLACE, STAY TUNED FOR COMING ATTRACTIONS UP NEXT RIGHT AFTER THESE MESSAGES.
