Aloha! Here are some of the stories we're working on for Hawaii News Now at 5 and 5:30 on this Tuesday.
GOVERNOR TOURS TSUNAMI DAMAGED AREAS
Governor Neil Abercrombie, today, toured tsunami ravaged areas of the state. He focused on the hardest hit areas of Kailua-Kona. Our own Lisa Kubota will have a report at 5.
RADIATION SCARE IN HAWAII?
The nuclear crisis in Japan is causing a rush on potassium iodide on the mainland and here in Hawaii. Potassium iodide is often used to protect a person's thyroid during and after exposure to radiation. Jim Mendoza will have that story.
LABOR AGREEMENT FOR LOCAL 5 & FOR 6 STARWOOD HOTELS IN HAWAII
Its tentative, but it's a big step forward for Local 5 and six Starwood Hotels in Hawaii. The proposed deal covers about 22-hundred employees at the Sheraton Waikiki, Royal Hawaiian, Moana Surfrider, Princess Kaiulani, Sheraton Kauai and Sheraton Maui. Union members have to ratify the deal before it becomes effective. Details at 5.
DON HO CHILDREN EVICTED
It's a years long, bitter legal battle between some of Don Ho's children and the Trustees of his estate. Yesterday, it came to a head with the eviction of some of his children from a home on Diamond Head owned by the Trust. Emotional family members kicked in doors and said the only way they would leave was if police arrested them. That story is at 5:30.
I hope you'll join Stephanie Lum and me for these stories and more tonight on Hawaii News Now at 5 and 5:30. See you then!
