(intro-FF)

Open

B. J: ALOHA EVERYONE. THANK YOU FOR JOINING US THIS WEEK ON MAUI TV NEWS. I'M JEFF KING.

JY: AND I'M JULIE Y. IT'S BEEN A WEEK OF HEATED TEMPERS AND A FEW SURPRISES FOR THE HAWAII SUPERFERRY.

(turn to cam)(PiP: Superferry)

BUT FOR ALL THE SHOUTING, THE GIANT ALUMINUM BOAT HASN'T GONE ANYWHERE. BELIEVE IT OR NOT, THE SUPERFERRY IS EVEN GETTING BLAMED FOR THAT. MAUI TV NEWS REPORTER JEFF KING BRINGS US UP TO DATE.

(take SUPERFERRY package)

(Honuaula)(PiP-Honuaula)

C. J: AFTER MORE THAN 50 HOURS OF TESTIMONY AND PUBLIC HEARINGS ON THE PROPOSED HONUA’ULA HOUSING DEVELOPMENT IN SOUTH MAUI, THE COUNTY COUNCIL HAS OUT THE DISCUSSION ON HOLD.

(vo) PUBLIC TESTIMONY IN COUNCIL CHAMBERS AND - MORE RECENTLY - AT THE KIHEI COMMUNITY CENTER HAVE PRODUCED A GREAT DEAL OF INFORMATION FOR COUNCIL MEMBERS TO DIGEST. WHILE THE COUNCIL AND THE PROJECT DEVELOPERS HAVE REACHED TENTATIVE AGREEMENT ON 19 OF 31 PROPOSED CONDITIONS, THE SHEER VOLUME OF TIME HAS TAKEN IT'S TOLL. OTHER PROJECTS BEFORE THE COUNCIL LAND USE COMMITTEE HAVE HAD TO SIT ON THE BACK BURNER. SO, THE COUNCIL HAS DECIDED TO PUT HONUA'ULA ON THE BACK BURNING FOR A WHILE AND TAKE SOMETHING OF A 'SEVENTH INNING STRETCH.

VO-SOT Mike Victorino, on Honua'ula. Kind of a "7th Inning Stretch?"

MV01: "If you want to call it that, yes. It's going give everyone the chance to regroup - some time to get their facts together. And the developer - we've asked for a number of things so that's going to give them some time to work. Give us as a c9ounty some time to work on other things that need to be brought forward - things that we need to finish for the people of Maui County. It's sad that one development's kinda holding everything back cuz there are other things on affordable that need to come forward so, yes it's kind of a 7th inning stretch, give us time to come back and say 'yea' or 'nay' - whatever we want to do on it, let's move on it."

(on-cam) THE NEXT HEARING ON THE PROJECT THAT PLANS A GOLF COURSE, A COMMERCIAL CENTER AND 14-HUNDRED HOMES FOR SOUTH MAUI, INCLUDING 750 TO BE CLASSIFIED AS AFFORDABLE, HAS BEEN SET FOR OCTOBER 17TH.


(Pine Fest)(PiP-PineFest)

D. JY: CALL IT A SIGN OF THE TIMES, BUT IT WAS ANOTHER "END OF AN ERA" THIS WEEK AT THE SECOND ANNUAL MAUI PINEAPPLE FESTIVAL AND HOMECOMING. AMERICA'S LAST PINEAPPLE CANNERY CLOSED IN JUNE AFTER A CENTURY PRODUCTION. MAUI TV NEWS REPORTER JEFF KING WAS THERE SATURDAY AND CAUGHT UP WITH SOME SPRY VETERANS OF THE HEY DAYS OF PINEAPPLE.

(take Pine pkg)

(on-cam tag) MAUI LAND AND PINEAPPLE CONTINUES TO MARKET IT'S FRESH "MAUI GOLD" VARIETIES WHILE IT CONTINUES TO EXPAND IT'S DEVELOPMENT PRESENCE THROUGH PROJECTS LIKE KAPALUA MAUKA AND THE PROPOSED PULELEHUA HOUSING PROJECTS.


(Teen Fatal) (Pip-Haiku Map)

E. J: A SUNDAY RAFTING TRIP TURNED TO TRAGEDY FOR TWO TEENAGE GIRLS FROM MAUI.

(ff-vo-cg) SHORTLY AFTER 1 P.M. SUNDAY, THE BODY OF A TEENAGE GIRL WAS FOUND EAST OF THE INTERSECTION OF HAIKU ROAD AND WEST KUIAHA ROAD IN LOWRIE DITCH. ABOUT FOUR HOURS LATER, POLICE DISCOVERED ANOTHER BODY IN THE DITCH, ABOUT A HALF-MILE DOWNSTREAM NEAR PICO TRACT. AT THE TIME THE IDENTITIES OF THE TWO YOUNG GIRLS WAS UNKNOWN. HOWEVER, THE PARENTS OF TWO TEENAGE GIRLS SUNDAY NIGHT REPORTED TO POLICE THAT THEIR DAUGHTERS HAD FAILED TO COME HOME FROM A RAFTING TRIP IN AN AREA KNOWN AS "THE TUBES" IN HAIKU. IT WAS THEN THAT POLICE MADE THE CONNECTION, AND THE IDENTITIES OF THE TWO YOUNG WOMEN WERE CONFIRMED.

MAUI POLICE BELIEVE THE GIRLS ENTERED THE DITCH NEAR PEAHI ROAD. A SEARCH TUESDAY TURNED UP A SURFBOARD IN THE LOWRIE DITCH - BUT NO CLEAR EVIDENCE THAT IT WAS THE ONE THE VICTIMS USED. POLICE ALSO SAY THAT ONE OF THE TWO GIRLS WAS LIKELY SUCKED THROUGH A SIPHONE IN THE IRRIGATION DITCH, AND THAT THE OTHER GIRL MAY HAVE BEEN DRAWN THROUHG THREE OF THE SIPHONS.

(oncam) AUTOPSIES MONDAY AFTERNOON CONFIRMED THAT BOTH OF THE VICTIMS HAD DROWNED. THEY WERE IDENTIFIED AS 13 YEAR-OLD LUCY SMITH OF WAILUKU AND 14 YEAR-OLD CHERIE HURD OF HAIKU. BOTH GIRLS WERE STUDENTS AT KING KEKAULIKE HIGH SCHOOL IN PUKALANI.


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

F. J: COMING UP NEXT ON MAUI TV NEWS, GOVERNOR LINGLE RELEASES NEARLY 30 MILLION DOLLARS FOR IMPROVEMENTS AT MAUI'S KAHULUI AIRPORT. WHAT'S NOT THERE NOW THAT WILL COST SO MUCH WHEN WE COME BACK.

JY: AND EMPTY NEST SYNDROME HITS A NORTH MAUI BEACH. BUT THAT'S THE BEST NEWS MARINE BIOLOGISTS COULD HAVE HOPED FOR.

J: AND WE'LL TAKE YOU TO WHAT HAS TO BE ABOUT THE MOST HAWAIIAN WAY TO SPEND YOUR LUNCH HOUR IN WAILUKU ON A THURSDAY. THAT AND MORE WHEN MAUI TV NEWS CONTINUES.


(break)

(b block)

(Airport Funds)(PiP-Airport)

G. J: GOVERNOR LINDA LINGLE HAS RELEASED NEARLY 30 MILLION DOLLARS FOR IMPROVEMENTS AT KAHULUI AIRPORT. THE SUM IS JUST A FRACTION OF HER ADMINISTRATION'S 2.3 BILLION DOLLAR 12-YEAR STATEWIDE AIRPORTS MODERNIZATION PLAN. THE FUNDS WILL FINANCE CONSTRUCTION OF A NEW INLINE BAGGAGE HANDLING SYSTEM THAT WILL BE EQUIPPED WITH EXPLOSIVE DETECTION SYSTEMS. THE MONEY WILL ALSO GO TOWARD A CUPPS SYSTEM, WHICH STANDS FOR COMMON USE PASSENGER PROCESSING SYSTEM.

(vo) BAGGAGE HANDLING AT THE AIRPORT WILL UNDERGO A MAJOR OVERHAUL WHEN THE NEW SYSTEM IS INSTALLED. A SYSTEM DEVELOPPED BY THE TRANSPORTATION SECURITY ADMINISTRATION IS SAID TO BETTER IDENTIFY EXPLOSIVES THAN ANY EXISTING TECHNOLOGY. THAT 24-MILLION DOLLAR UPGRADE WILL ALSO INCLUDE A COVERED AND ENCLOSED AREA FOR EXPLOSIVE DETECTION AND BAGGAGE SCREENING. CONSTRUCTION IS SET TO BEGIN IN JUST A FEW WEEKS AND WILL TAKE ABOUT A YEAR.

THE OTHER SIX MILLION WILL GO TOWARD A SYSTEM THAT SHOULD STREAMLINE PASSENGER CHECK-IN BY CREATING FLEXIBLE USE OF CHECK-IN COUNTERS BY MULTIPLE AIRLINES DURING THE COURSE OF A DAY - PROVIDING A MORE EFFICIENT CHECK-IN EXPERIENCE.

(ON-CAM) THAT PROJECT HAD ALREADY BEGUN AND WHEN COMPLETE BY NEXT AUGUST WILL RESULT IN MORE THAN A HUNDRED OF THE CHECK-IN KIOSKS AT KAHULUI AIRPORT.


(Picnic with Poki)(PiP-Poki)

H. JY: IMPROMPTU HULA...SEEING OLD FRIENDS...AND ENJOYING A MOST RELAXING ISLAND-STYLE MIDDAY UNDER THE POKI-POD TREE. THAT'S WHAT BRADDA POKI CALLS HIS SPECIAL SPOT IN FRONT OF THE KA'AHUMANU CHURCH AND ONCE A MONTH, YOU CAN FIND HIM THERE. MAUI TV NEWS REPORTER JEFF KING TAKES US TO PICNIC WITH POKI.

(take poki pkg)

(ON-CAM TAG) YOUR NEXT CHANCE TO PICNIC WITH POKI IS THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18TH ON THE GROUNDS OF THE OLD KAAHUMANU CHURCH ON THE CORNER OF MAIN AND HIGH STREETS, ACROSS FROM THE STATE BUILDING IN WAILUKU. A LITTLE LATER ON THIS WEEK'S EDITION OF MAUI TV NEWS, WE'LL BRING YOU MORE OF THE SIGHTS AND SOUNDS FROM PICNIC WITH POKI.


(HONU NEST)(PiP-emptynest)


I. J: A REMOTE BEACH IN WAIEHU WILL BE THE NESTING SPOT FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS OF GREEN SEA TURTLES. THE CIRCLE OF LIFE CONTINUES FOR HONU AFTER FOUR NESTS HAVE NOW YIELDED THE NEXT GENERATION OF THIS THREATENED SPECIES.

(vo) A SMALL CROWD GATHERED ONE EVENING LAST WEEK AS GLYNNIS NAKAI CAREFULLY EXCAVATED THE NEST THAT YIELDED AROUND 85 EGG SHELLS...CAREFULLY COLLECTED FOR STUDY.

Glynnis Nakai, Refuge Manager for Kealia Pond Wildlife National Refuge - a partner (federal) in the Turtle project with Skippy Hau, the state aquatic resources specialist for DLNR.

gn01: "The majority of them empty which means the hatchlings came out and went into the ocean on their own."

(VO) SADLY, THIS HATCHLING DID NOT SURVIVE...BUT SCORES OF OTHER DID FROM THIS FOURTH AND FINAL KNOWN NEST...IN A VERY SUCCESSFUL YEAR FOR THIS AS-YET-UNIDENTIFIED, prolific and SMART GREEN SEA TURTLE.

gn02: "she's been very prolific and she picks perfect spots. What doesn't seem like a really good beach has turned out to be a very good beach where you have 95 to 98 percent hatching success and emergence success."

THE NEST, LOCATED DIRECTLY ONSHORE FROM THE SHIPPING LANE INTO AND OUT OF KAHULUI HARBOR HAS NEVER YIELDED A NEST BEFORE THAT SCIENTISTS KNOW ABOUT. IS IT GLOBAL WARMING? NATURES' WAY OF PROTESTING THE SUPERFERRY? JUST PLAIN LUCK?

CHERYL KING, HAWAII WILDLIFE FUND, Turtle Project Coordinator.

CK01: "Probably the real reason that they're here is that this beach hasn't been developed. And it's nice and quiet and dark. That's why they're here. ///There's very few beaches left on Maui like this. // It's a great spot. Native vegetation. It's just beautiful."

(on-camtag) THIS ONE NESTING FEMALE GREEN SEA TURTLE DUG FOUR NESTS ALONG THIS BEACH AND LAID A TOTAL OF 386 EGGS, OF WHICH 365 HONU KEIKI MADE IT TO THE SEA...INCLUDING 61 THAT WERE FREED FROM WET SAND AND EMPTY SHELLS DURING THE EXCAVATIONS. IN ALL, THAT'S A 95 PERCENT SUCCESS RATE. WHILE GREEN SEA TURTLES DO OCCASIONALLY NEST ON MAUI, THE VAST MAJORITY OF THEM SWIM THE DISTANCE TO BEAR THEIR YOUNG ON THE SHORES OF THE FRENCH FRIGATE SHOALS IN THE PAPAHANAUMOKUAKEA NATIONAL MARINE SANCTUARY IN THE NORTHWEST HAWAIIAN ISLANDS.


(Toss to C-BlocK)(2-Shot)

J. JY: COMING UP NEXT IN SPORTS, THERE WERE STILL TWO UNBEATEN TEAMS IN M-I-L FOOTBALL AS OF LAST WEEK. DID THEIR STREAKS SURVIVE INTO THE WEEKEND? AND THERE WERE THREE UNBEATEN GIRLS VOLLEYBALL TEAMS MIXING IT UP, TOO. KALAPANA HAS ANSWERS AND HIGHLIGHTS UP NEXT IN SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS.

J: AND THEN OUR OWN JULIE Y WILL HAVE THE HIGHLIGHTS OF WHAT YOU SHOULD PLAN FOR AS YOU PREPARE TO DO THE FAIR. THAT AND MUCH MORE IN COMING ATTRACTIONS WHEN MAUI TV NEWS CONTINUES.

K. K: SOMETIMES THE BEST OFFENSE IS A GOOD DEFENSE. ALOHA EVERYONE AND WELCOME TO SPORTS ON MAUI TV NEWS. I'M KALAPANA.

THE BALDWIN BEARS ARE WINNING GAMES THIS SEASON LARGELY DUE TO A VERY STRONG DEFENSE. WHATEVER THE METHOD, THEY HAVE TO BE PLEASE WITH THE OUTCOME, MOVING TO TWO AND HO TO START THE M-I-L VARSITY FOOTBALL SEASON.

(vo) NA ALII STADIUM SATURDAY NIGHT AS KING KEKAULIKE SHOWED THEY CAN MOVE THE BALL AND CONTROL THE CLOCK. ON THIS PLAY CORRY ROY TO TAYLOR RODRIGUES FOR A PICKUP OF FOUR. NA ALII TRUDGE ONWARD PICKING UP A FEW FIRST DOWNS. BUT PATIENCE PAYS OFF FOR THE BALDWIN BEARS. KING K HAS TO PUNT EVENTUALLY AND WATCH NUMBER 5, SKYLER CABACUNGAN ON THIS RETURN AS HE JUKES AND ROARS DOWN THE LEFT SIDELINE, GETTING SOME HELP WITH A NICE BLOCK FROM TROY AOKI, AND SPRINT INTO THE END ZONE FOR SIX.

NA ALII ON THE NEXT DRIVE PICK UP WHERE THEY LEFT OFF. LOTS OF OFFENSE, HERE CORRY ROY HANDS OFF TO MIKEY DOUGLAS WHO POWERS DOWN TO THE BEARS' 30 YARD-LINE. RODRIGUES AROUND THE LEFT SIDE FOR ANOTHER NICE GAIN. THE DRIVE WAS STOPPED ON A BALDWIN INTERCEPTION. BUT THE FRESH NA ALII DEFENSE WAS ON IT AS BALDWIN QB JASON HELLE HITS KALEI KAMAHELE FOR A LONG GAIN...ONLY TO HAVE THE BALL STRIPPED BY KING K'S KELEI MILLER. NA ALII BALL! THEY COULDN'T CAPITALIZE, HOWEVER AND IT WAS THREE AND OUT. SECOND QUARTER ACTION NOW, AND BALDWIN'S JORDAN HELLE FIRES A STRIKE TO CABACUNGAN RIGHT UNDER THE GOAL POST FOR BALDWIN'S ONLY OFFENSIVE TOUCHDOWN OF THE NIGHT. THE BEARS HAD THEIR OF HIGHLIGHTS - LIKE THIS NICE PUNT RETURN BY KAMAHELE ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE NA ALII 4...AND LOWLIGHTS, LIKE THIS BOBBLED SNAP THAT RESULTED IN A RECOVERY BY KAPO'I PI'ENA OF NA ALII.

(FF-VO-CG) THE BEARS PREVAILED THOUGH, SCORING ONE TOUCHDOWN BY THE OFFENSE, ONE BY THE DEFENSE AND ONE BY SPECIAL TEAMS TO BEAT NA ALII BY A FINAL SCORE OF 19 TO 8. FRIDAY NIGHT SAW LAHAINALUNA RUN THEIR UNDEFEATED STREAK TO FOUR GAMES AS THEY TOPPLED THE TROJANS 42- TO 14.

(FF-CG-V0-2) THIS WEEK THE M-I-L TAKES A BREAK WHILE EVERYONE GOES TO THE MAUI COUNTY FAIR. NEXT UP IT'S NEXT MONTH WHEN THE BEARS HEAD TO PUKALANI TO FACE KAMEHAMEHA MAUI ON OCTOBER FIFTH. THAT SAME NIGHT THE TROJANS FACE THE SABERS AT WAR MEMORIAL STADIUM. ON OCTOBER 6TH THE LUNAS FACE NA ALII AT WAR MEMORIAL.

(FF-VO-CG) HERE ARE THE STANDINGS GOING INTO THE COUNTY FAIR BREAK. BALDWIN LEADS DIVISION ONE WITH A PERFECT MARK OF TWO AND OH, WHILE NA ALII ARE HOLDING THEIR OWN IN THEIR FIRST YEAR IN DIVISION ONE. MEANWHILE, LAHAINALUNA HOLDS THE TOP SPOT OF DIVISION TWO, ALSO PERFECT AND TWO AND OH. THEIR MATCHUP WITH NA ALII ON OCTOBER 6TH FIGURES TO BE A GREAT GAME

(ONCAM) SPEAKING OF GREAT GAMES...THERE WERE FOUR OF THEM LAST WEEK AS THE BATTLE OF THE UNBEATEN LADIES IN DIVISION TWO VOLLEYBALL BROUGHT OUT THE BEST IN BOTH TEAMS.

(VO) THE MOLOKAI LADY FARMERS BROUGHT A SMALL BUT VISIBLE CONTINGENT TO A PACKED HOUSE AT ERDMAN ATHLETIC CENTER TO FACE A HIGHLY INSPIRED BATCH OF SPARTANS FROM SEABURY HALL. IF THE FIRST RALLY OF THE MATCH WAS TO BE ANY KIND OF A SAMPLE OF WHAT WAS TO COME, THE CROWD GOT IT'S MONEY'S WORTH! KAMI ROACHA FINALLY PUTS THIS ONE AWAY FOR THE SPARTANS' FIRST SCORE. AND OF DO THE LADY SPARTANS KNOW HOW TO CELEBRATE! AFTER YACINE MEYER DIGS THIS MOLOKAI SERVE ITS ALEX BOLDUC FINDING THE HOLE FOR ANOTHER SEABURY HALL POINT. MAYER TAKES THE PASS AGAIN AND SHOWS HER COURT SMARTS WITH A PERFECT DINK OVER.

AN OVERFLOW CROWD FILLED SEABURY HALL...NOT TO MENTION SEABURY RAFTERS AND THE UNDERMANNED MOLOKAI SQUAD CALLS A TIME OUT...ONLY TO COME BACK AND FACE THE MIGHTY MEYER JUMP SERVE. GOOD DEFENSE PAYS OFF AND MOLOKAI WINS THIS POINT...BUT MOMENTUM CARRIED THE LADY SPARTANS - LED BY YACINE MEYER'S 17 KILLS, TO WIN IT IN FOUR, 25-20, 25-18, 23-25 AND 25-20.

(on-cam)

AND FINALLY, CONGRATULATIONS TO THE LADY PADDLERS OF MAUI WHO SHOWED UP BIG TIME IN THIS WEEKEND'S NA WAHINE O KE KAI OUTRIGGER CANOE RACE FROM MOLOKAI TO DUKE KAHANAMOKU BEACH ON OAHU.

(FF-VO-CG)) A FIELD OF 82 CREWS BRAVED MIGHTY KAIWI CHANNEL WINDS - WITH TEAM BRADLEY IN THEIR NEWLY-BLESSED WA'A COMING IN FIRST FOR THE THIRD STRAIGHT YEAR. THEIR TIME: FIVE HOURS, 22 MINUTES AND 14 SECONDS...JUST TWO SECONDS OFF THE COURSE RECORD - GOOD FOR 5,000 DOLLARS. TEAM BRADLEY'S CREW IS A MOSTLY-STATEWIDE ALL-STAR TEAM THAT'S MOSTLY MADE UP OF MAUI PADDLERS, INCLUDING DANE WARD, MARGIE KAWAIAEA, LAUREN BARTLETT, ANDREA MOLLER AND TERESA FULGATE. MAUI WAS AGAIN WELL REPRESENTED WITH HAWAIIAN CANOE CLUB'S KAMAU ELU CREW. THEY FINISHED 18TH OVERALL. WITH MAUI'S LAE ULA O KAI RIGHT BEHIND, COMING IN 19TH.

(on-cam) NEXT UP, MORE THAN A THOUSAND MEN WILL TAKE THEIR SHOT AT THE WORLD SERIES OF OUTRIGGER CANOE RACING TO COMPETE IN THE MOLOKAI HOE, RACING 41 MILES ACROSS OPEN OCEAN FROM HALE O LONO HARBOR ON MOLOKAI TO DUKE KAHANAMOKU BEACH ON OAHU.
