Aloha! Here are some of the stories we're working on for Hawaii News Now at 5 and 5:30 on this Aloha Friday.
EROSION PLAN USING KAILUA BEACH
Its an on-going problem at some of Hawaii's beaches: stopping erosion. Tonight, a plan do just that at Oahu's Kailua Beach. The beach isn't in trouble just yet, but with future projections on erosion there -- and a game plan to head it off -- could help create a "model plan" for other Hawaii beaches. Jim Mendoza will have more on this.
POLICE BRUTALITY ALLEGED
His injuries are now healing, but a man is claiming brutality by the Honolulu Police Department. A broken hand, facial injuries; those are just some of the injuries the man is claiming at the hands of HPD. Tonight, the alleged victim's attorney talks with Hawaii News Now.
MAN INJURED IN MOTORCYCLE CRASH
He was traveling on Fort Weaver Road on a Harley-Davidson when he lost control of his motorcycle. We'll update you on the 29 year old's condition. The man, apparently, was not wearing a helmet and suffered serious injuries.
THE INSIDE SCOOP FROM THE STATE CAPITOL
Is it true that elected officials think about what voters think just three times a day -- morning, noon, and night? Political Columnist, Richard Borreca, stops in to talk about the ever fascinating topic of what weight politicians give to approval ratings. Voters seem to be growing increasingly dissatisfied with the performance of not only President Obama, but also Congress as well. And here at home, our Governor has also fallen on somewhat low ratings. Borreca gives us his take on the topic tonight.
GOOD FRIDAY CELEBRATIONS
With Easter Sunday fast approaching, today was a time to remember with Good Friday observances. We'll take you to one at Kawaiahao Church.
I hope you'll join Stephanie Lum and me for these stories and more on Hawaii News Now at 5 and 5:30. See you then!
