J: CALLING IT “SPARSE TURNOUT” IS BEING KIND - AS A RECORD LOW VOTER TURNOUT PLAGUES MAUI COUNTY ONCE AGAIN.

HC: AND THE LOW TURNOUT IS BEING BLAMED FOR A RACE THAT WAS WINNER-TAKE-ALL, BUT - SOME SAY - SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN DECIDED BY ONLY 200 VOTES.

J: MEANWHILE, LIFE WENT ON ELSEWHERE ACROSS MAUI - FROM THE COP ON TOP TO PEACE IN THE PARK.

HC: IN SPORTS, THE RANKS OF THE UNDEFEATED ARE FALLING RAPIDLY. KALAPANA WILL HAVE HIGHLIGHTS FROM LAST WEEKEND'S M-I-L FOOTBALL ACTION THIS WEEK IN SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS.

J: AND FROM THE ULTIMATE IN CULTURAL ENTERTAINMENT TO THE ULTIMATE IN COTTON CANDY MIDWAY FUN AT THE COUNTY FAIR, HOLLY CHUNG HAS IT ALL 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 ON MAUI TV NEWS. I'M JEFF KING.

HC: AND I'M HOLLY CHUNG - SITTING IN FOR JULIE Y. WITH THE SURGE IN VOTER REGISTRATIONS EARLIER THIS YEAR, MANY THOUGHT LAST SATURDAY'S PRIMARY WOULD SET A RECORD.

(Turn to cam) IT DID. BUT NOT IN A GOOD WAY. MAUI TV NEWS REPORTER JEFF KING HAS THE STORY.

(Take Vote Pkg) IT'S LONELY BEING A POLLLING PLACE VOLUNTEER - AND THAT'S A SHAME. AFTER FEBRUARY'S HISTORIC DEMOCRATIC PRIMARIES, AND THE NEARLY NON-STOP CAMPAIGNING BY DOZENS OF CANDIDATES, IN SOME PRECINCTS - ONLY DOZENS OF VOTERS SHOWED UP.

THE TOTALS WORKED OUT LIKE THIS: OF THE 82,422 REGISTERED VOTERS IN MAUI COUNTY, 21,047 VOTED - A TOTAL OF 25.5 PER CENT. IN MAUI COUNTY, DEMOCRATS OUTNUMBERED REPUBLICANS IN VOTING BY MORE THAN SIX TO ONE. (D17,610 21.4% - R 2,822 3.4%)

IN KEY RACES WITHIN THEIR DISTRICT, THE HEARTBREAK VICTIM OF THIS ELECTION WAS CHALLENGER TASHA KAMA, LOSING TO LONGTIME INCUMBENT JOE SOUKI IN THE EIGHTH DISTRICT RACE FOR THE HOUSE BY BARELY 200 VOTES. WITH NO REPUBLICAN CHALLENGER, THE PRIMARY WAS A WINNER-TAKE ALL RACE. IN THE HOME DISTRICT PRECINT OF WAILUKU, THE MARGIN WAS EVEN SLIMMER - WITH SOUKI EDGING KAMA BY JUST 38 VOTES. (WAILUKU sOUKI 216 kAMA 178)

IN SOUTH MAUI, THE RACE FOR COUNTY COUNCIL WILL PIT WELL-KNOWN FORMER COUNCILMEMBER WAYNE NISHIKI AGAINST CHALLENGER DON COUCH. WHILE NISHIKI TOOK THE OVERALL LEAD IN COUNTYWIDE VOTING FOR THE POST BY MORE THAN 4,000 VOTES (N-9993 c-5954), IN THE HOME DISTRICT OF KIHEI, NISHIKI'S LEAD OVER COUCH WAS JUST ... SEVEN VOTES (N 162, C 155).

VOTER TURNOUT WAS EXPECTED TO BE LOW, BUT - ELECTION OFFICIALS SAY - NOT THIS LOW. WITHOUT A MAJOR RACE FACING MAUI VOTERS, A VERY IMPORTANT RACE BETWEEN JOE SOUKI AND TASHA KAMA GOT LOST SOMEWHERE IN A SEA OF APATHY - AND SOME ARE CALLING FOR ELECTION REFORM FOR A SORT OF SAFETY NET SO THAT, WHEN THE RESULTS ARE SO CLOSE IN SUCH A POORLY VOTED RACE, THE RACE SHOULD BE CONTESTED AGAIN IN A LARGER FORUM - THE GENERAL ELECTION IN NOVEMBER.

FOR MAUI TV NEWS, I'M JEFF KING.

(on-cam tag) IF YOU PLAN TO VOTE IN THE GENERAL ELECTION ON NOVEMBER FOURTH - BUT YOU HAVEN'T REGISTERED YET, THE DEADLINE IS OCTOBER 6TH. FOR QUESTIONS ON THE PROCESS, OR TO SEE THE ACTUAL PRIMARY NUMBERS FOR EVERY PRECINCT IN THE STATE, GO TO MAUI TV NEWS DOT COM AND CLICK ON THE LINK TO THIS WEEK'S STORIES.

(MOLOKAI RANCH)(PiP-Molokai Ranch)

J: THERE'S AN ISSUE THAT'S NOT ON ANY BALLOT - BUT HAS THE ATTENTION OF AN ENTIRE ISLAND, AND THEN SOME. THE ISSUE: EMINENT DOMAIN TO RECLAIM PROPERTY CURRENTLY OWNED BY MOLOKAI RANCH.

(VO) LAST THURSDAY A GROUP OF 10 MEMBERS REPRESENTING HO’OPAKELE 'AINA - THE RESCUERS OF THE LAND - TRAVELLED TO WAILUKU TO ADDRESS THE MAUI COUNTY COUNCIL'S POLICY COMMITTEE, URGING THEM TO PROCEED WITH STEPS TO CONDEMN THE RANCH PROPERTY, IN ORDER TO PROTECT PUBLIC HEALTH AND SAFETY.

(ON-CAM) IN A PRESS RELEASE, THE GROUP SAYS THAT - AT A RECENT TOWN MEETING IN KAUNAKAKAI, OF THE 300 ATTENDING, NOT A SINGLE VOTE WAS CAST AGAINST THE IDEA OF CONDEMNATION. DURING SATURDAY NIGHT'S ELECTION COVERAGE ON AKAKU: MAUI COMMUNITY TELEVISION, MAUI COUNTY COUNCILMEMBER DANNY MATEO, SPEAKING VIA AN INTERNET SKYPE CONNECTION FROM HIS HOME DISTRICT OF MOLOKA'I ADDRESSED THE CONCERNS THERE.

(Danny Mateo SOT)

ALSO ON SATURDAY NIGHT, I ASKED STATE SENATOR J. KALANI ENGLISH WHETHER THE ENFORCEMENT OF EMINENT DOMAIN WAS A COUNTY ISSUE OR A STATE MATTER.

(J. Kalani English SOT)

(on-cam) HUI HO'OPAKELE 'AINA SAYS A GROUP OF MOLOKA'I RESIDENTS HAS PUT TOGETHER A 120-MILLION DOLLAR OFFER TO BUY THE PROPERTY OUTRIGHT FROM MOLOKA'I RANCH, BUT THE RANCH SAYS THEY WON'T SELL. THE CONDEMNATION PROCESS THROUGH EMINENT DOMAIN WOULD HAVE TO ESTABLISH THE CLEAR AND IMMINENT PERIL TO PUBLIC HEALTH AND SAFETY. THEN, ASSESSMENTS AND AN OFFICIAL APPRAISAL WOULD ESTABLISH THE FAIR MARKET VALUE OF THE LAND. AT THAT POINT, UNDER LAW, MOLOKAI PROPERTIES WOULD BE COMPELLED TO SELL. WE'LL CONTINUE TO FOLLOW THIS STORY FOR YOU AS IT DEVELOPS.

(UNEMPLOYMENT)(PiP:worker at work)

HC: MEANWHILE, MOLOKA'I - WHICH SAW IT'S UNEMPLOYMENT NUMBERS REACH DOUBLE-DIGITS IN APRIL WITH THE CLOSURE OF MOLOKA'I RANCH, NOW SEES THEM CLIMBING INTO THE TEENS.

(FF-CG-VO) THE SEASONALLY ADJUSTED UNEMPLOYMENT NUMBERS FOR THE MONTH OF AUGUST SHOW MOLOKAI'S UNEMPLOYMENT RATE AT 13-POINT-SEVEN PERCENT - MORE THAN TWICE WHAT IT WAS A YEAR AGO. AND EVEN THEN IT WAS ALREADY TWICE THE STATE RATE. UNEMPLOYMENT - WHICH WAS VIRTUALLY NON-EXISTENT A YEAR AGO ON LANA'I BEFORE JUMPING TO MORE THAN FIVE PERCENT LAST MONTH, DROPPED SLIGHTLY. THE LOSS OF TWO AIRLINES ON TOP OF THE CLOSURE OF MOLOKA'I RANCH BROUGHT THE STATE UNEMPLOYMENT RATE TO 4-POINT-TWO PERCENT, NEARLY DOUBLE WHAT IS WAS THE PREVIOUS YEAR.

IT COMES AS LITTLE COMFORT TO THOSE OUT OF WORK, BUT HAWAII STILL HAS ONE OF THE LOWEST UNEMPLOYMENT RATES IN THE NATION. THE NATIONAL UNEMPLOYMENT RATE IS 6-POINT-ONE PERCENT, UP FROM 5-POINT-SEVEN PERCENT IN JULY AND 4-POINT-SEVEN PERCENT A YEAR AGO.

ON THE BRIGHT SIDE, IMPORTANT INDUSTRIES EXPERIENCED SUBSTANTIAL GAINS IN THE NUMBERS OF AVAILABLE JOBS IN HAWAII. IN AUGUST 200 NEW CONSTRUCTION JOBS OPENED UP AND THE LEISURE AND HOSPITALITY INDUSTRIES ALSO GAINED 200 JOBS.

HOWEVER, TO "BALANCE THAT," THE TRADE, TRANSPORTATION AND UTILITIES INDUSTRIES LOST 400 JOBS LAST MONTH , PRIMARILY DUE TO THE PULLING OUT OF TWO CRUISE SHIPS SERVING HAWAI'I.

TOSS TO B BLOCK

J: UP NEXT ON MAUI TV NEWS, WE'LL TAKE YOU STRAIGHT TO THE TOP AS THE ANNUAL "COPS ON TOP" BENEFIT FOR SPECIAL OLYMPICS SPUTTERED A BIT AS IT NEARED THE FINISH LINE. WE'LL TELL YOU HOW THEY FINISHED WHEN WE COME BACK.

HC: DESPITE NEAR RECORD LOW RAINFALL AND A CRITICAL DROUGHT DECLARATION, SOMEHOW MAUI RESIDENTS ARE USING EVEN LESS WATER THAN BEFORE.

J: AND WE'LL TAKE YOU TO A CENTRAL MAUI HILLSIDE WHERE A PEACEFUL, EASY FEELING WAS FLOWING THIS WEEK. DETAILS WHEN MAUI TV NEWS CONTINUES.

B BLOCK

(Cop On Top)(PiP-Cop On Top)

J: THEY ARE THE COPS ON TOP. WE'RE NOT TALKING THE CHIEF - WELL, MAYBE WE ARE. THEY ARE THE CHIEF FUNDRAISERS FOR SPECIAL OLYMPICS IN MAUI COUNTY.

(v0) BY SATURDAY MORNING, SOMEWHERE AROUND 50 HOURS AFTER THEY STARTED, ALL THREE OF THE MAUI COPS ON TOP WERE MAKING BETTER PROGRESS THAN THEY THOUGHT THEY MIGHT - GIVEN THE CURRENT STATE OF THE ECONOMY.

Barbara Torrence, Special Olympics Volunteer

BT01: "It's going well. We thought it might be slow but it's going well. I'm sure we'll reach our goal."

BT02: "We have Nick Krau up here at Kihei Safeway. He's been up there since 6 a.m. Thursday morning. I think this is his fifth year. And he volunteers his time. He takes vacation time from his police duties to come do this for us."

GREETING FRIENDS AND STRANGERS FROM HIGH ATOP THE KIHEI SAFEWAY, HE GOT SOME HELP FROM BALDWIN HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS WHO WELCOMED DONORS AT THE OTHER END OF THE STORE.

AND AS THE SUN ROSE HIGHER, SO DID THE TOTAL. ALL THREE MADE THEIR GOALS - AND THEN SOME. OFFICER NICK CRAU WAS THE TOP COP ON TOP RAISING 11,595 DOLLARS. HIS BROTHER, OFFICER TONY KRAU - AND ACCOMPLICE OFFICER KAENA BROWN RAISED 11, 293 DOLLARS. AND IN LAHAINA - OFFICER NATHANIEL HUBBARD RAISED 10,994 DOLLARS. FOR A GRAND TOTAL OF 33,882 DOLLARS.

ALL THE MONEY STAYS IN MAUI COUNTY FOR ACTIVITIES ON MAUI, MOLOKAI AND LANAI. AND THE LOOKS ON THE FACES OF THESE ATHLETES AND VOLUNTEERS.. SAYS IT ALL...MAHALO.

(on-cam) MEANWHILE, SUPPORTERS OF SPECIAL OLYMPICS ARE BREATHING A SIGH OF RELIEF AFTER THE HAWAII STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION REVERSED ITSELF THIS WEEK AND DECIDED NOT TO CUT STATE FUNDING FOR SPECIAL OLYMPICS. NEARLY 130 THOUSAND DOLLARS IN FUNDING FOR THE PROGRAM THAT PROVIDES ATHLETIC AND CHARACTER BUILDING FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES HAD BEEN CUT EARLIER THIS MONTH AS PART OF A 9-POINT-THREE MILLION DOLLAR PACKAGE OF REDUCTIONS MANDATED BY THE STATE AFTER REVENUE SHORTFALLS WERE ANNOUNCED FOR FISCAL YEAR 2007.

AND THE RESTORATION OF SPECIAL OLYMPICS COMES JUST AHEAD OF A STATE DECLARATION DESIGNED TO RAISE AWARENESS OF THE ISSUE OF MENTAL ILLNESS.

(FF-CG-VO) THE WEEK OF OCTOBER FIFTH THROUGH THE ELEVENTH HAS BEEN DESIGNATED AS MENTAL ILLNESS AWARENESS WEEK IN HAWAI'I. THE NATIONAL ALLIANCE ON MENTAL ILLNESS HAS PARTNERED WITH MANY STATES - INCLUDING HAWAII - TO DECREASE THE STIGMA OF MENTAL ILLNESS.

(ON-CAM) AND TO HELP REDUCE - AND EVENTUALLY ELIMINATE THE INACCURATE AND HURTFUL WAYS THAT MENTALLY ILL PEOPLE ARE PORTRAYED. ONE OF THEIR MOST ACTIVE EFFORTS IS A PROGRAM CALLED "STIGMABUSTERS," WHOSE GOAL IS TO FOSTER RESPECT FOR THOSE SUFFERING FROM MENTAL ILLNESS. TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE NATIONAL ALLIANCE ON MENTAL ILLNESS, GO TO MAUITVNEWS-DOT-COM AND FOLLOW THE LINK TO THIS WEEK'S STORIES.

(water use)(PiP-Water Drop)

HC: WHILE THE SUN CONTINUED TO SHINE, YOU MAY NOT HAVE NOTICED - BUT LAST WEEK CENTRAL AND SOUTH MAUI ADVANCED FROM A RATING OF “SEVERE” DROUGHT CONDITIONS TO “EXTREME” DROUGHT CONDITIONS. WHILE THE DISTINCTION BETWEEN THE TWO ISN'T INSTANTLY CLEAR, THE SKIES HAVE BEEN. BUT - MUCH TO THE AMAZEMENT AND PLEASURE OF COUNTY WATER OFFICIALS, WATER USE IN THOSE AREAS CONTINUES TO DROP.

(FF-CG-VO) IN FACT, WATER USE IN ALL FIVE MAJOR REPORTING AREAS DROPPED LAST WEEK. THE DECREASES WERE MODEST, BUT THEY ADDED UP TO A REDUCTION OF MORE THAN A HALF-MILLION GALLONS A DAY.

(ON-CAM) DEPARTMENT OF WATER SUPPLY DIRECTORY JEFFREY ENG SAYS HE IS PARTICULARLY PLEASED AT THE RESTRAINT AND STEWARDSHIP MAUI COUNTY RESIDENTS ARE EXHIBITING - PARTICULARLY IN LIGHT OF THE WORSENING DROUGHT CONDITIONS IN CENTRAL AND SOUTH MAUI, THE WEST END OF MOLOKA'I AND THE ENTIRE ISLAND OF LANA'I. HE'S NOT GETTING ANY HELP FROM THE WEATHER DEPARTMENT. THIS WEEK THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LONG RANGE FORECAST IS PREDICTING LESS THAN AVERAGE RAINFALL ACROSS HAWAI'I THROUGH THE REST OF 2008.

(PEACE DAY)(PiP-Peaceful crowd)

J SUNDAY AFTERNOON THE SKIES WERE CLEAR, THE MOOD WAS MELLOW AND THE MESSAGE WAS PEACE.

(VO) A STEADY STREAM OF PEACE-LOVING PEOPLE STREAMED IN AND OUT OF KEOPUOLANI AMPHITHEATER PARK TO SPEND A BIT OF THEIR SUNDAY AT MAUI'S FIRST-EVER "INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE." VENDORS AND EXHIBITORS’' MESSAGES INCLUDED TOPICS RANGING FROM FAMILY PETS TO MEDITATION TO MEDIATION TO HOW TO SAVE THE HONEY BEES. THERE WAS ENTERTAINMENT, FREE-FLOWING EXPRESSIONS IN DANCE AND SPIRITUAL COMMENTARY FROM RAM DASS. ONE WOMAN'S WISHES FOR PEACE WERE MANIFEST IN THE CREATION OF ONE THOUSAND PAPER CRANES.

Denni Grace - Folder of 1,000 Cranes

DG01: "No mother, grandmother, sister or any family member should ever have to go through the ordeal of having a family member or loved injured in a war."

(take sot)

(con't vo) THE EVENT, SPONSORED BY THE UNITY CHURCH OF MAUI, EVEN OFFERED THE OPPORTUNITY TO REGISTER TO VOTE IN THE UPCOMING GENERAL AND PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.

(ON-CAM) A LITTLE LATER ON THIS WEEK'S EDITION OF MAUI TV NEWS, WE'LL BRING YOU SOME MORE OF THE SIGHTS AND SOUNDS OF THE INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE.

(Toss to C Block)

HC: UP NEXT IN SPORTS, A COUPLE OF CLOSE CALLS SHOOK UP THE M-I-L IN FOOTBALL THIS WEEK. KALAPANA HAS DETAILS AND HIGHLIGHTS UP NEXT IN SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS.

J: THEN HOLLY WILL BE BACK WITH COMING ATTRACTIONS - FROM HAWAIIAN CHAMBER MUSIC TO HOOTIN' AND HOLLERIN' AT THE COUNTY FAIR, SHE'S GOT ALL THE DETAILS WHEN WE COME BACK.


(sports) (PiP-Sports)

K: FOR THE 2008 MAUI INTERSCHOLASTIC LEAGUE FOOTBALL SEASON, ALREADY THERE ARE ONLY TWO UNDEFEATED TEAMS - AND ONE OF THEM IS THAT WAY - JUST BARELY.

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

ONE OF THE STRONGEST TEAMS THIS YEAR - IN TERMS OF EXPERIENCE AND DEPTH, IS LAHAINALUNA. TWO WEEKS AGO THE LUNAS HAD QUITE A SCARE WHEN THEY NEARLY LOST TO KAMEHAMEHA, COMING BACK LATE TO WIN IT 28-21 DESPITE FUMBLING THE BALL FIVE TIMES.

SO, THIS PAST WEEK SHOULD HAVE BEEN MUCH EASIER AGAINST THE TROJANS, RIGHT? WELL...NOT SO FAST!

(vo) FIRST QUARTER ACTION AT WAR MEMORIAL STADIUM FRIDAY NIGHT. LUNAS LOOK IMPRESSIVE HERE AS THEY SWARM OVER TROJAN Q-B KAINOA LEGSAY. NUMBER 42 JAYSON MANNING LEADING THE CHARGE. BACK ON OFFENSE, TWIN BROTHER JAKE MANNING AT QUARTERBACK HANDS OFF TO THE VERY SLIPPERY GEORGE CHIHARA WHO COMES THIS WAY FOR A GAIN OF TWENTY YARDS AND A FIRST DOWN. THEN MANNING HANDS IT TO BRYSON WILLIAMS WHO SCAMPERS ANOTHER 16 YARDS BEFORE TROJAN ANGELO PEREZ DRIVES HIM OUT OF BOUNDS. TWO PLAYS TO THE DIVERSIFIED CHIHARA WHO GAINS 7 ON THE GROUND HERE - THEN ANOTHER 16 THROUGH THE AIR...AND A LITTLE COACHING FROM HIS MOM AND DAD.

THEN IT WAS MANNING ON THE KEEPER AS THE SIX-TWO SENIOR ATTRACTED A CROWD OF TROJANS THAT HE DRAGGED DOWN TO THE SIX. BUT THEN THINGS WENT UGLY FOR THE LUNAS. FIRST, AN OFF-SIDES PENALTY CALLS BACK THIS APPARENT TOUCHDOWN. THEN, JAKES TOSSES A GROUNDER TO HIS BROTHER, JASON. THEN, WHEN LAHAINALUNA GOES FOR IT ON FOURTH AND GOAL - NO GOAL, AND THE TROJANS TAKE OVER ON DOWNS.

WHILE THE TROJANS JUST COMPLETED AN EXCELLENT RED ZONE STAND, THEIR OFFENSE STUMBLED - AND FUMBLED HERE AS ETHAN KIM WISELY FALLS ON IT. TIME TO PUNT AND RED-HOT GEORGE IS BACK TO FIELD IT...BUT FINDS THE BALL A LITTLE TOO HOT TO HANDLE - BUT HE GETS A LUNA BOUNCE AND FLOPS ON IT IN TIME.

THREE PLAYS LATER AND MANNING KEEPS IT AND HE SLIPS THROUGH THE ENTIRE TROJAN - D FOR THE LUNAS' FIRST SCORE. IS THIS WHERE THE FLOOD GATES OPEN? NOT EXACTLY AS IVAN DELANEY'S EXTRA POINT TRY GETS A "DOINK." AND A LONG FIRST QUARTER IS ALSO A LOW-SCORING ONE.

A SQUIB KICK ON THE KICKOFF AND IT'S TAKE BY ONE OF THE UP-MEN. THIS YEAR'S TROJANS HAVE SOME MONSTERS ON THE SQUAD AS 300-POUND KALANI FINEISALOI REFUSES TO GO DOWN. IN FACT, HE DOESN'T. THEY JUST BLOW THE WHISTLE - AND HE LEAVES. THIS YEAR, IN FACT THE TROJANS HAVE A HALF-DOZEN PLAYERS RANGING FROM 285 TO 365 POUNDS! AND THAT HELPS SPRING QUARTERBACK KAINOA LEGSAY FOR NINE AND A HALF YARDS.

BUT THE REST OF THE HALF BELONGED TO LAHAINA LUNA. FIRST JAKE MANNING HANDS TO BRYSON WILLIAMS WHO SCAMPERS IN FOR THE TOUCHDOWN. LUCK SMILED ON JAKE'S BROTHER JASON MANNING NEXT. WATCH AS LEGSAY'S PASS TO TROJAN JUAN ESTRADA HITS JAYSON ON THE ARM, HE TURNS AROUND - AND JUST LIKE THAT - IT'S LAHAINALUNA'S BALL ON THE TROJAN 21. A FEW PLAYS LATER MANNING HANDS IT TO WILLIAMS AGAIN AND LUCK SMILES ON THE LUNAS ONCE MORE. WHY DO I SAY THAT? WATCH IN SLOW MOTION AS NUMBER 62 FOR THE LUNAS, RYAN ASPILI, CLEARS THE WAY FOR WILLIAMS WITH A VERY DANGEROUS BLOCK IN THE BACK ON TROJAN ANGELO PEREZ. OOOOOOH!

THE LUNAS SCORED FOUR TOUCHDOWNS IN THE SECOND PERIOD, AND WENT ON TO HANDILY DEFEAT THE TROJANS 41 TO SIX TO REMAIN PERFECT AND TWO AND OH.

(FF-CG-VO) IT WAS A C-J SANTOS FIELD GOAL WITH 17 SECONDS LEFT TO LIFT THE BALDWIN BEARS OVER KING KEKAULIKE SATURDAY BY A FINAL SCORE OF 25 TO 22.

THIS WEEK THE SABERS TRAVEL TO FACE NA ALII UPCOUNTRY ON FRIDAY NIGHT - AND SATURDAY NIGHT THE TROJANS FACE KAMEHAMEHA MAUI AT WAR MEMORIAL.

(ON-CAM) NO FOOTBALL NEXT WEEKEND AS M-I-L TEAMS TAKE THE WEEKEND OFF TO GO TO THE FAIR.

AND, BEFORE WE GO, WE WANT TO WISH A MIGHTY IMUA! TO THE MAUI LADIES OF THE SEA AS THEY COMPETE IN SUNDAY'S NA WAHINE O KE KAI, TRAVERSING THE TREACHEROUS KA IWI CHANNEL FROM MOLOKAI TO OAHU. THE MEN WILL FOLLOW TWO WEEKS LATER IN THE MOLOKA'I HOE.

AND THAT'S A LOOK AT SPORTS FOR THIS WEEK. IF YOUR TEAM HAS TRYOUTS OR A BIG GAME COMING UP AND YOU'D LIKE SOME COVERAGE, SEND THE INFORMATION - AT LEAST TWO WEEKS IN ADVANCE - TO SPORTS AT MAUITVNEWS-DOT COM AND WE'LL DO OUR BEST TO GET A FILM CREW TO CAPTURE THE ACTION. FOR MAUI TV NEWS, I'M KALAPANA. NOW HERE'S HOLLY CHUNG WITH COMING ATTRACTIONS.
