Good Wednesday morning Sunrisers,
Who says 13 is an unlucky number? The 13th miner has been pulled to safety out of a mine in Chile where 33 men were trapped half a mile underground for 69 days. 20 are left as the real life drama continues. Rescuers still fear that the tunnel could collapse or that a miner could panic in the journey to the surface. We'll have regular updates.
Razor thin. That's the margin between Republican Charles Djou and Democrat Colleen Hanabusa in their race for congress in a new poll. We'll break down the numbers and the recent accusations that both sides have gone too far in their campaign ads.
Jamming to get your java? Can't wait for you caffeine? Then you may want to think twice before you go to Starbucks. Why the company said your wait time could double.
Covering the civil union debate. A film maker has entered his documentary called "Chasing Rainbows" into the Hawaii International Film Festival. The goal is to examine both sides of the debate. We'll sit down with the creator.
Spaetzel or schnitzel? That's the question this morning at Gordon Biersch. We'll have details on the Shriners' Oktoberfest fundraiser.
And Steve Uyehara is back from a brief vacation! What will he eat today?
