J: IT MUST BE ELECTION TIME BECAUSE CANDIDATES ARE EVERYWHERE. CAMPAIGNING REACHED A FEVER PITCH THIS WEEK ACROSS MAUI COUNTY.

JY: AND THE RACES EVEN MOVED OFF-SHORE AS TEAMS - AND SOME CANDIDATES, RACED AT THE SIERRA CLUB'S RED, WHITE AND BLUE CANDIDATES' PICNIC.

J: BUT THE COMPETITION WAS WAY DIFFERENT ACROSS THE ISLAND AS MAUI CHEFS COMPETED IN THE CULINARY OLYMPICS AT KAPALUA. WE'LL GIVE YOU A TASTE THIS WEEK.

JY: IN SPORTS, TENNIS ACTION IN WAILEA BROUGHT OUT THE BEST OF YOUNG COMPETITIORS. AND THIS WEEKEND, LOOK OUT FOR THOUSANDS MORE - LITERALLY - AS THE MAUI MARATHON TAKES TO THE HIGHWAY. DETAILS ARE COMING UP IN SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS.

J: AND FROM YOUR FAVORITE RUNNING SHOWS TO YOUR FINEST HAT - AN AMAZING VARIETY OF FUN THINGS TO SEE AND DO WILL BE LAID OUT FOR YOU IN COMING ATTRACTIONS THIS WEEK ON MAUI TV NEWS.

(intro-FF)

Open (TWO SHOT)

J: ALOHA EVERYONE, WELCOME TO MAUI TV NEWS, MAUI'S EXCLUSIVE INTERNET AND TELEVISION NEWSCAST - NOW AVAILABLE ON BASIC CABLE AND SATELLITE, TOO. I'M JEFF KING.

JY: AND I'M JULIE Y. SOME SAY THEY CALL IT ELECTION FEVER BECAUSE THE PACE GETS MORE HECTIC AND HEART-RACING AS THE POLLING DAY APPROACHES.

(Turn to cam) BUT SOME CALL IT ELECTION FEVER BECAUSE THEY'RE JUST SICK OF IT ALL. MAUI TV NEWS REPORTER JEFF KING SHOWS US THAT THE END IS IN SIGHT...BUT GET USED TO SEEING MORE CANDIDATES MORE OFTEN FOR THE NEXT WEEK OR SO.

(Take Candidates Pkg) IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN SEEING YOUR ELECTED OFFICIAL ABOUT A CIVIC CONCERN - GOOD LUCK. CHANCES ARE THEY'RE NOT IN THE OFFICE THIS WEEK. BUT IF YOU WANT TO TALK STORY, THERE ARE PLENTY OF CHOICES. CANDIDATE FORUMS ARE HAPPENING ALL OVER MAUI. WITH SEVENTEEN SEATS UP FOR GRABS AND 48 CANDIDATES HOPING TO GRAB ONE, THE BI-ANNUAL GAME OF MUSICAL CHAIRS STILL HAS MOST OF THE HOPEFULS ON THEIR FEET. AND MAUI IS LIKELY ONE OF THE FEW PLACES WHERE BARE FEET ARE NO PROBLEM AT A CANDIDATE FORUM. LAST SATURDAY A FLEET OF CANDIDATES WERE HOSTED AT A CANDIDATES FORUM ON LANI'I. RUNNING UNOPPOSED, MAUI COUNTY COUNCILMEMBER MIKE VICTORINO SERVED AS TOUR GUIDE AND MC AT THE LANAI EVENT THAT DREW ABOUT 150 ON THE PINEAPPLE ISLE.

SUNDAY'S RED, WHITE AND BLUE CANDIDATE PICNIC AT KANAHA BEACH PARK INCLUDED A RACE OF A DIFFERENT KIND, FOLLOWED BY SPEECHES AND Q AND A.
CANDIDATES' PURPOSE IS TO BE SEEN AND HEARD. SIERRA CLUB HAS A PURPOSE, TOO.

Jeanne Androvich, Event Coordinator, Sierro Club Maui

JA01: "Our purpose is to provides a relaxed, informal venue where candidates can come meet regular members of the community, talk story, face-to-face - ask the tough questions if they want to . But it's relaxed, informal - hopefully fun."

MANY OF THESE KINDS OF EVENTS ARE ATTENDED BY SMALLER CROWDS - MADE UP OF PEOPLE WHO GENUINELY WANT TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CANDIDATES. THERE CERTAINLY IS NO SHORTAGE OF INFORMATION AVAUILABLE AT ANY CANDIDATE FORUM.

NOR IS THERE ANY SHORTAGE OF PROMOTION. WEDNESDAY NIGHT'S FORUM AT THE FILIPINO COMMUNITY CENTER WAS AWASH WITH COLORFUL POSTERS, FLYERS, PENS, CLIPS, OVEN MITS AND SMILING CANDIDATES - AND SMILING PEOPLE WHO CAME TO LISTEN. A PANEL OF LEADERS FROM THE FILIPINO COMMUNITY ASKED PROBING QUESTIONS OF EACH CANDIDATE, FROM HOW TO LOWER GAS PRICES SOONER THAN LATER - TO WHETHER OR NOT HAWAII SHOULD CONDUCT A LOTTERY TO SUPPORT EDUCATION, AS IS DONE IN OTHER STATES.WITH JUST A WEEK TO GO UNTIL THE PRIMARY, MAXIMUM FACE-TIME IS CRUCIAL TO WIN THE HEARTS - AND HOPEFULLY THE VOTES - OF THE PEOPLE OF MAUI COUNTY. REPORTING FROM KAHULUI FOR MAUI TV NEWS, I'M JEFF KING.

(on-cam tag) AND WE'LL HAVE THOSE RESULTS FOR YOU, LIVE ON BOTH ELECTION NIGHTS - FOR THE PRIMARY ON SEPTEMBER 20TH AND THE GENERAL ELECTION NOVEMBER FOURTH WHEN MAUI TV NEWS JOINS WITH AKAKU - MAUI COMMUNITY TELEVISION TO BRING YOU THE RESULTS OF THIS HISTORIC VOTE. LIVE COVERAGE BEGINS AS SOON AS THE POLLS CLOSE ON SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 20TH ON MAUI CABLE CHANNELS 52, 53 AND 54. IN THE MEANTIME, THERE ARE ANSWERS TO YOUR HOW-TO-VOTE QUESTIONS AVAILABLE ON THE STATE ELECTIONS WEBSITE. TO GET THERE, FOLLOW THE LINK FROM OUR WEBSITE AT MAUITVNEWS.COM.

(B&B Vote)(PiP-B&B)

J: MEANWHILE IT'S AN ISSUE THAT DOESN'T NEED ELECTION SEASON TO GET PEOPLE HOT AND BOTHERED. THE TRANSIENT VACATION RENTAL ISSUE IS NOT A DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN ISSUE - BUT A VOTE LAST WEEK MEANT A GREAT DEAL TO A GREAT NUMBER OF PEOPLE.

(Take B&B VO/SOT)

Jeff Hunt, Planning Director, Maui County

JH01: "The Planning Commitee of the Council is recommending, at this point, to allow Bed and Breakfasts on agricultural land - with some conditions. Income test would be one and they're considering some other standards. For example, if the land isn't suitable for farming, you wouldn't have to meet the income test."

Gladys Baisa, Maui County Councilmember

GB01: "Not a reversal in the entire council, but it does indicate a reversal in the committee. And I believe that came about by receiving more information and from site visits that members were able to make and to actually look at some of these nefarious B&Bs on ag land and how really beautiful they are how little they affect the surrounding area,."

THE MOST RECENT ECONOMIC REPORTS ON TOURISM NUMBERS INDICATE A SIGNIFICANT DROP IN VISITOR STAYS - DOWN NEARLY A THIRD FROM THIS TIME LAST YEAR. BUT, B&BS WERE AFFECTED THE LEAST.

GB02: "That's because the folks that come really are loyal. I get countless letters and emails saying, 'please can we come back to our favorite place.' Also, you know, there's this perception that they might negatively affect agriculture. I don't think so. I look at as the glass half-full most of the time, and I see lots of people for whom, being able to have a B&B to supplement their agricultural income might be the tipping point that helps them to stay in ag."

JH02: "The dilemma for us is how to you allow commercial uses in the agricultural zone without turning it into a commercial zone? We want to supplement the farmers' income - the true bona fide farmers - but not to turn the area into commercial uses because it's more viable than farming."

THE NEW PROPOSAL DOESN'T MAKE IT REALLY ANY EASIER TO GET A B&B PERMIT TO OPERATE ON AG LAND, BUT WHAT IT DOES DO IS MAKE IT POSSIBLE. OF COURSE, IT'S NOT LAW YET. AND THE NEW LAW WOULD APPLY ONLY TO B&BS - DEFINED AS A SHORT-TERM RENTAL WHERE THE OWNER LIVES ON THE PROPERTY AND OVERSEES THINGS. VACANT RENTALS AND ON-SITE MANAGEMENT ARE STILL NOT OPTIONS.

(on-cam tag) THE ISSUE STILL HAS A LONG WAY TO GO AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO FOLLOW IT. ONE IDEA BEING CONSIDERED IS SETTING A CAP ON THE NUMBER OF B-AND-BS THAT WOULD BE ALLOWED IN EACH COMMUNITY. BUT DON'T LOOK FOR THAT IDEA TO SETTLE THINGS DOWN TOO QUICKLY. BY ONE ESTIMATE, THERE ARE AROUND 11-HUNDRED TRANSIENT VACATION RENTALS ON MAUI. THE IDEA OF THE COMMUNITY CAP WOULD AIM TO KNOCK THAT TOTAL DOWN TO ABOUT 400. GETTING EVERYONE TO AGREE ON WHO GETS THOSE PERMITS WILL BE NO EASY TASK.

(Duke-Con-Con)(PiP: Duke)

JY: AND HE'S NOT RUNNING FOR OFFICE - AT LEAST NOT YET, BUT HAWAII'S LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR DUKE AIONA, WAS ON MAUI THIS WEEK TO DRUM UP SUPPORT FOR A BALLOT ITEM FOR THE NOVEMBER ELECTION.

(VO) TUESDAY NIGHT THE STATE'S SECOND-IN-COMMAND ADDRESSED THE MAUI NATIVE HAWAIIAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, DETAILING PROGRESS ON HIS THRUST TO GET PUBLIC SUPPORT FOR A CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION. HE SPOKE WITH MAUI TV NEWS AFTERWORDS.

James R. "Duke" Aiona, Jr. Ly. Gov., State of Hawaii

DA01: "I think if you ask people the questions I asked tonight, regarding education, regarding the sunshine law, with the legislators, whether or bnot we should limit them to terms. Whether we should have just one body.Whether we should have just one legilsative session every other year. I bet if you went out and aksed people, 'do you think those are important questions that need to be asked?' the answer would be 'yes, I think those are important questions that have to be asked. You have to frame it in such a way, you have to explain it, and people will understand it and they'll see the need for it."

(on-cam) TO LEARN MORE ABOUT JUST WHAT HAPPENS AT A CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION AND WHY THEY EVEN HAPPEN, GO TO MAUI TV NEWS-DOT-COM AND FOLLOW THE LINK TO THIS WEEK'S STORIES.

TOSS TO B BLOCK

J: UP NEXT ON MAUI TV NEWS, OLYMPIC FEVER STILL RUNS HIGH ON MAUI. WE'LL TAKE YOU TO THE 2008 CULINARY OLYMPICS WHEN WE COME BACK.

JY: THIS WEEK MARKS THE SEVENTH ANNIVERSARY OF THE SEPTEMBER 11TH ATTACKS. HOW THE STATE HONORED THE DAY WHEN WE COME BACK.

(MAUI CHEFS)(PiP-Maui Chefs Logo)

J: THE HUMAN DRAMA OF COMPETITION...NEVER TASTED SO GOOD. THE ANNUAL "MAUI CHEFS PRESENTS" FOR 2008 WAS TITLED "THE CULINARY OLYMPICS - THE ROAD TO THE RITZ." WE SENT MAUI TV NEWS REPORTER JULIE Y OUT IN SEARCH OF OLUMPIC GLORY, AND TO SEE HOW THE BEIJING BIRDS NEST FARED BETWEEN THE FAIRWAYS OF KAPALUA

(TAKE MAUI CHEFS PKG) THERE WAS A DECIDEDLY FAMILIAR LOOK INSIDE THE PAVILION AT THE RITZ CARLTON, KAPALUA FRIDAY NIGHT FOR THE SIXTEENTH ANNUAL "MAUI CHEFS PRESENTS: THE CULINARY OLYMPICS - THE ROAD TO THE RITZ". IT FELT LIKE WE WERE IN BEIJING INSIDE THE FAMOUS "BIRDS' NEST."

JY:"So the booths - are those actual birds next or just piping? "RS02: "Well let you be the judge. But they all look just as good as Beijing. Carol Walker has done designs for our events for the last several years and I think we've outdone ourselves again."///

IT'S BEEN A YEAR OF OUTDOING THEMSELVES - IN FACT - EXACTLY A YEAR SINCE RINA TOOK OVER THE LAHAINATOWN ACTION COMMITTEE, AND SHE SAYS IT'S BEEN A WILD TIME.

Rina Sampson, Executive Director, Lahainatown Action Committee

RS01: "Well it's been a roller coaster ride but it's all good. It's been a real opportunity to grow and to bring back to Lahaina what Lahaina's all about."

WHAT TONIGHT IS ALL ABOUT IS SHOWCASING THE TALENTS OF MAUI'S UP AND COMING CHEFS - WHILE PROVIDING A MOST ENTERTAINING EVENING FEATURING THE AMAZING TALENTS OF GRAMMY NOMINEE RAIATEA HELM...AND THE HOT SOUNDS OF JIMMY MAC AND THE COOL CATS.

MASTER CHEFS TAKE ADVANTAGE OF EVENTS LIKE MAUI CHEFS PRESENTS TO EXPOSE THEIR DELIGHTS TO THE PUBLIC - AND EVEN TO DO A LITTLE EXPERIMENTING.

Ivan Pahk, Exec Chef, Sansei Kapalua

IB02: "Well we use the guests as guinea pigs, then run it at the restaurant after."

AND WHILE PARTICIPANTS SEEM TO HAVE AS MUCH FUN AS THE GUESTS, JUDGES DID KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR ATHLETIC APPEARANCE.

JY: Did you pick your own outfit for the event tonight? IB: yes we wanted to be softball. because they won the gold."

THE PROCEEDS FROM THIS VERY FUN EVENT GO RIGHT TO THE HEART OF MAUI'S MASTER CUISINE EDUCATION PROGRAM. AND, OF COURSE, THE WAY TO THE HEART IS THROUGH THE STOMACH. TOMORROW'S EXECUTIVE CHEFS ARE GETTING HAND-ON EXPERIENCE TONIGHT.

Ben Marquez, Chef/Instructor Maui Culinary Academy at Maui Community College

BM01: Absolutely. We have about three of our advanced students that are helping. We have two of our past graduates that are here as well and we have seven brand new students who just started cooking about two weeks ago."

IF THERE WERE ROOKIES HERE, YOU SURE COULDN'T TELL. TONIGHT THEY WERE ALL PROFESSIONALS.

JY: As a chef and an instructor, who would you give the gold to? BM02 Well, I'm kinda' partial, but I really liked the Seafood Lawalu from K-B-H and their dessert was really nice as well. And the duck from the Maui Marriott was really good. And, the sushi tower from Shanghai was really good as well. JY: I have to admit that was one of my favorites, too.

MY OLYMPIC EXPERIENCE MADE MY HEART SWELL WITH PRIDE. IT WAS ALMOST LIKE BEING ON THE AWARDS PODIUM.

JY Standup: "Tonight the Culinary Olympics was probably the highlight of my....Oh!! Chocolate...!"

HEY, A GIRL'S GOTTA EAT! AND YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT "LIFE BEING TOO SHORT.” THANKFULLY THE “ROAD TO THE RITZ” LED RIGHT TO THE CHOCOLATE.

ONE OF THE REALLY TOUGH CALLS THIS YEAR WAS TO CHOOSE BETWEEN TWO ANNUAL WEST SIDE FAVORITES - MAUI CHEFS PRESENTS AND THE TASTE OF LAHAINA. WHEN THEY WEIGHED ALL THE FACTORS, MAUI CHEFS WON, BUT ORGANIZERS SAY THE TASTE WILL BE BACK IN '09.

BUT FOR TONIGHT, THE SILENT AUCTIONS PRIZES - THE BLING - THE DECORATIONS AND THE TASTE TREATS SET THE BAR PRETTY HIGH FOR NEXT YEAR. REPORTING FROM KAPALUA FOR MAUI TV NEWS, I'M JULIE Y.


(ON-CAM TAG) WHILE THE FINAL TALLY ISN'T IN - IT SHOULD BE AT LEAST A SILVER MEDAL FOR THE EVENT. LAST YEAR WAS THE FIRST YEAR THERE WAS ENOUGH OF A PROFIT TO MAKE A SUBSTANTIAL DONATION TO THE ,AUI COMMUNITY COLLEGE CULINARY ARTS SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM.

(9-11)(PiP-Half-Staff Flag)

JY: BELIEVE IT OR NOT, IT WAS SEVEN YEARS AGO THIS WEEK THAT THE U.S. WAS ATTACKED BY TERRORISTS IN THE MONUMENTAL CATASTROPHE THAT WILL FOREVER SIMPLY BE KNOWN AS NINE-ELEVEN.

(vo) FLAGS ACROSS MAUI - AND THE ENTIRE STATE - ARE FLYING AT HALF-STAFF TO COMMEMORATE THAT HORRIBLE DAY. GOVERNOR LINDA LINGLE HAS DECLARED SEPTEMBER 11TH AS "PATRIOT DAY" IN HAWAI'I, HONORING THOSE WHO LOST THEIR LIVES - INCLUDING SOME FROM HAWAI'I.

(ON-CAM) BUT THE PROCLAMATION ALSO FOCUSES ON THE SPIRIT THAT FOLLOWED THE ATTACKS THAT GALVINIZED A NATION. THE PROCLAMATION READS, IN PART, "PEOPLE FROM EVERY CORNER OF THE NATION GAVE FROM THEIR HEARST TO HELP THE VICTIMS. COURAGEOUS SURVIVORS REBUILT THEIR LIVES. THOSE LEFT BEHIND CARRIED ON THE LEGACY OF THEIR LOVED ONES." PATRIOT DAY BECAME LAW LAST DECEMBER WHEN CONGRESS PASSED THE RESOLUTION TO LOWER STATE AND U.S. FLAGS TO FLY AT HALF-STAFF ON SEPTEMBER 11TH IN EVERY STATE IN THE NATION.

(Toss to C Block)

JY: UP NEXT IN SPORTS, WHILE THE M-I-L PRESEASON HAD ITS UPS AND DOWNS FOR LOCAL TIMES, IT'S TIME FOR THE REAL THING. PLUS, IT'S ALSO TIME FOR AN ANNUAL SPORTING EVENT THAT MOVES THROUSANDS OF FEET. DETAILS UP NEXT IN SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS.

JY: THEN IT'S TIME FOR COMING ATTRACTIONS - WITH SOME FASHION ADVICE FOR SENSIBLE FOOTWEAR, FASHIONABLE HEAD GEAR - AND THE PERFECT PLACES TO WEAR THEM. WE'LL EXPLAIN WHEN MAUI TV NEWS CONTINUES.


(sports) (PiP-Sports)

JK: FOOTBALL, TENNIS, PADDLING AND THE MARATHON. NO, THEY'RE NOT FOUR MORE SPORTS FOR THE WORLD'S GRATEST ATHLETE, BRYAN CLAY...THEY'RE WHAT'S ON SPORTS THIS WEEK.

ALOHA EVERYONE AND WELCOME TO SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS. I'M JEFF KING IN FOR THE VACATIONING KALAPANA.

THE MAUI INTERSCHOLASTIC LEAGUE KICKS OFF THE REGULAR FOOTBALL SEASON THIS WEEKEND. THE MAUI HIGH SABERS FACE A REBUILDING BATCH OF BALDWIN BEARS FRIDAY NIGHT AT WAR MEMORIAL AND THE LUNAS TREK TO PUKALANI TO TAKE ON KAMEHAMEHA MAUI SATURDAY NIGHT. NEXT WEEK THE TROJANS AND KING KEKAULIKE WILL SEE THE START OF THEIR REGULAR SEASONS. IN A LOT OF WAYS THIS IS A BUILDING YEAR FOR M-I-L TEAMS AS MOST OF BALDWIN'S BACKFIELD GRADUATE IN 2007, AND A SIX-PLAYER EXODUS FROM THE TROJANS TO BALDWIN MEAN TWO TEAMS HAVE A LOT OF NEW PLAYERS.

(VO) NEITHER BALDWIN NOR MAUI HIGH WERE SUCCESSFUL IN THEIR PRE-SEASON OPENERS - EACH FACING MUCH LARGER SQUADS -- BUT LOOK FOR WAR MEMORIAL STADIUM TO BE PACKED FRIDAY NIGHT FOR THAT MATCH. WE'LL HAVE HIGHLIGHTS FOR YOU NEXT WEEK IN SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS.

(ON-CAM) WILL HE MAKE IT THE HI-FIVE? FOUR-TIME MAUI MARATHON CHAMPION JACOB ROTICH HEADS A FIELD OF ELITE RUNNERS FOR SUNDAY'S MAUI MARATHON. THE GUN GOES OFF - WAKING UP THE NEIGHBORS AROUND QUEEN KA'AHUMANU CENTER AT 5 A.M. WHEN AN EXPECTED 25-HUNDREDS THONNER HEAD...THAT WAY. THE 26-POINT-TWO MILE COURSE ENDS AT THE WEsTIN KA'ANAPALI. ROTICH'S TIME LAST YEAR WAS TWO HOURS, 29 MINUTES AND 22 SECONDS...MORE THAN FOUR MINUTES FASTER THAN HE WON IT IN 2006. HIS BEST TIME WAS IN '-5 WHEN HIS TWO HOUR AND 27-MINUTE FINISHING TIME PACED HIS AT 5-MINUTE 39-SECOND MILES. THAT'S ALMOST 11 MILES AN HOUR...FASTER THAN MANY CARS GET TO TRAVEL BETWEEN KAHULUI AND KA'ANAPALI ON THE WEEKEND. WE'LL HAVE RESULTS FOR YOU NEXT WEEK ON MAUI TV NEWS.

CHANGING GEARS TO HEAD OFF-SHORE, THIS WEEKEND'S E'ILAU HOE KAKOU LONG-DISTANCE CANOE RACE IS WHAT SOME SAY IS THE MOST LIKE THE HARROWING MOLOKA'I CHANNEL CROSSING THAT IS THE CROWN JEWEL OF THE LONG-DISTANCE OUTRIGGER CANOE RACING SEASON. THIS SATURDAY SATURDAY MORNING TEAMS HEAD OUT FROM MALOKO GULCH ON THE NORTH SHORE STRAIGHT INTO WHATEVER MOTHER NATURE HAS IN STORE FOR THAT MORNING. THE 32-MILE RACE PASSES KAHAKULOA BEFORE HEADING AROUND HONOLUA AND ENDING IN THE CALMER WATERS OF LAHAINA.

(FF-CG-VO) IT'S A TUNE UP FOR THE BIG ONES, JUST WEEKS AWAY WHEN THE WOMWN CHALLENGE MOLOKA'I CHANNEL IN NA WAHINE O KE KAI ON SEPTEMBER 28TH - AND THE MEN CHALLENGE THE ELEMENTS AND EACH OTHER IN THE MOLOKA'I HOE ON OCTOBER 12TH.

(VO) AND BEFORE WE GO THIS WEEK, LET'S HEAD OUT TO THE WAILEA TENNIS CENTER FOR SATURDAY'S JEAN BEDELL MEMORIAL TENNIS TOURNAMENT. IN THE GIRLS AGE 12 SEMIFINAL, JORDAN DUARTE FACES JADE THURMAN AS THE TWO YOUNG LADIES BOTH BATTLED THE HOT SUN. JORDAN WON THE MATCH 6-4 AND 6-3 AND WENT ON TO WIN HER DIVISION. IN THE BOYS 18, JESSE KNIGHT'S SERVE IS RETURNED BY AUSTIN WINES AND A GREAT RALLY ENSUES...TILL JESSE GETS A LITTLE GREEDY. HIS SRVE IS A SIZZLER, BUT WINES IS UP FOR IT AND WINS THIS RALLY...AND STRAIGHT SETS 6-2 AND 6-2.

(on-cam) AND THAT'S A QUICK LOOK AT SPORTS FOR THIS WEEK. KALAPANA WILL BE BACK WITH YOU NEXT TIME. MEANWHILE, IF YOUR TEAM WOULD LIKE SOME COVERAGE, SEND US YOUR SCHEDULE AT LEAST TWO WEEKS IN ADVANCE T
