Coming Up on Hawaii News Now Monday

Happy Aloha Monday from Hawaii News Now! Here are just some of what we're working on for our 5 o'clock and 5:30 p.m. newscasts on KGMB & KHNL.

A former Pearl Ridge Elementary School secretary appeared in Honolulu Circuit Court today, accused of stealing thousands of dollars. She admitted to 99 felony counts of forgery and theft, but tonight, Minna Sugimoto, explains why she'll likely avoid any jail time. That's at 5 o'clock.


Leaving your dryer vents clogged with lint may make for a dangerous fire hazard. That's what fire officials are saying. Tonight, we'll take a first hand look at getting those, often hard to reach vents, cleaned -- and safe. Tim Sakahara gets down and dirty when he takes a closer look, tonight at 5:30.

In what may have important ramifications for future class action lawsuits, the United States Supreme Court has ruled in favor of Walmart in the lawsuit against the retail giant filed on behalf of thousands of women who claim they were discriminated against. Tonight at 5, what the ruling means for the case and why it all boils down to "commonality."


Looking for a short term job rubbing elbows with the movers and shakers of the world? We'll tell you about a job opportunity with the Asian Pacific Economic Cooperation being held in Honolulu in a few months. That's tonight at 5 p.m.


You know the dress we're talking about -- the white one she wore that blew up ever so revealingly  from a street vent. Well, at auction it went for a pretty nifty price. No, make that, monumental price! That's tonight at 5.

There's a lot more coming up tonight on Hawaii News Now. Guy Hagi will have the latest on Hurricane Beatriz and the rest of our state's weather outlook; and Kelly Mumme, will have the latest on our afternoon traffic situation.

I hope you'll join Stephanie Lum and me for these stories and more on Hawaii News Now at 5 and 5:30 on KGMB & KHNL.

See you then!
