Aloha Obama's, Sailor's Wife Relieved, Did Fireworks Ban Work?

Hope you're enjoying your first Monday of the new year! It's a busy day in the newsroom. Here's a look at some of the stories we're working on:

It's back to D.C.! The Obama's annual Hawaii vacation comes to an end. The President, his family and first dog Bo are scheduled to board Air Force One and leave from Joint-Base Pearl Harbor, Hickam at 5 p.m. Our Brooks Baehr will be covering their departure live tonight on Hawaii News Now at 5.

The worried wife of a sailor who had been missing for two weeks is relieved knowing her husband is safe and alive. Ira Foreman arrived on the Big Island yesterday afternoon. He says he was blown off course by strong winds during a voyage from Kauai to Oahu. Jim Mendoza updates us on the latest developments.

And...it may have been a quieter than normal New Year Eve but some Oahu residents say that wasn't the case in their neighborhood. Minna Sugimoto spoke to people living in Waipahu who said the ban on fireworks has backfired. She'll have more in her report tonight on Hawaii News Now at 5:30.

See you on the news!
