Good Afternoon!

Here's a look at some of the stories we're working on tonight for Hawaii News Now.

To Search or Not to Search? Is it an invasion of privacy to use dogs to search school lockers? A closer look at this issue tonight at 5.

Where is Kukui High? President Obama made Punahou a household name. Now, Hawaii Five-O is drumming up interest for "Kukui High." The fictional campus is taking on a life of its own since the debut of the show. See how far its come in just one week tonight at 6 on KGMB.

Speaking of Hawaii Five-O, the cast feels the heat from locals. Daniel Dae Kim was a guest on the CBS Early Show this morning to promote the second episode of Hawaii Five-O. From pidgin to use of locations and Hawaiian language, hear what he had to say about the pressure from local fans to get it right tonight at 5.

Asteroid Found by Haleakala Telescope. UH Astronomers discovered an asteroid 150 feet in diameter that will come within four million miles of Earth in mid-October. The asteroid, named 2010 ST3, is the first potentially hazardous object to be discovered by the Pan-STARRS PS1 telescope atop Haleakala. Astronomers say that 2010 ST3 itself has a "very slight possibility" of hitting Earth in 2098, underlining the value of tracking these objects. More on their discovery- ahead at 5 & 6.

Kapahulu Gas Leak Contained. A contractor tore through a gas line while excavating a driveway around 9AM on Makini Street. Luckily, the leak was contained and no evacuations were needed.

Aloha and see you on the news!
