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

A teen who was repeatedly stabbed by a fellow student at Kalani High in May 2010, addressed his attacker in court today. Today, the former classmate -- who is now 18 years old -- was sentenced today. Tonight, Minna Sugimoto has more on this story as we hear from both the victim and the man who pleaded guilty to attempted manslaughter under a deal with prosecutors.


As promised, the Honolulu City Council today overrode some of Mayor Peter Carlisle's vetoes. Tonight at 5, Tim Sakahara reports on which vetoes the council dealt with and what it may mean for the rest of us. We'll also have more on the leadership reorganization of the council.

Tonight at 5:30, Jim Mendoza, takes a look at a the plan to divert streams to make way for the City's rail transit project. The work would include building support columns in the streams and widening existing bridges. Jim will have more on the plan, tonight at 5:30 on KHNL.

And in the weather department, Guy Hagi says it could get up into the 90's this week. He'll have more on that and how our work week is shaping up, weather wise. Also, Kelly Mumme will have the latest on our pau hana traffic.
