Show Preview: Wayne Panoke, Mayor Billy Kenoi, Molokai seals, Waipuna

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - We pay tribute to Wayne Kaho'onei Panoke.

"I don't think our lahui realizes how much Kaho'onei did for all of us," said Vicky Holt-Takamine, a longtime friend.

We check in with Mayor Billy Kenoi to take a look at the Hawaii County specific strategies they are pursuing to deal with this economy.

"It pays for itself. We're taking existing personnel. With the money and revenue generated from the program, they pay for the additional folks we're hiring," said Billy Kenoi.

Whatever happened to the famous monk seal that captured the hearts of Moloka'ians?

"We have never seen seals on Molokai. When we did see one, it was a big story. Today, we are seeing the coming of the seals. There are seals all over Molokai," said Walter Ritte.

We meet the talented men of Waipuna as they release their debut album Mana'o Pili.

Join us this Sunday at 4:30 p.m. for 'Aha'i 'Olelo Ola.
