Horses Killed, Hawaii Poll, Surfers Rescued

Aloha from Hawaii News Now. It's been a busy news day. Here are some of the stories we're working on for our 5 and 5:30 newscasts:  

THREE DEAD HORSES BELIEVED KILLED ON MOLOKAI

Is someone killing horses on Molokai? That's what one family believes is happening after 
two horses were shot and killed -- another was gravely wounded. And apparently it's not the first time. Ben Gutierrez spoke 
with the owners of the horses that were supposedly killed a little over a week ago. 

SLIPPAGE: APPROVAL NUMBERS GO DOWN FOR GOV. & HONOLULU MAYOR  

The approval ratings for the Governor and Honolulu Mayor have taken a slight hit since last May. Tonight, Keoki Kerr shows us the latest poll conducted by Hawaii News Now and the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.

MISSING SURFERS RESCUED
After spending four hours drifting in the ocean North of Oahu, two missing surfers are safe tonight. We'll have more on their ordeal -- and rescue -- after going missing near Laniakea beach at the surf spot called Jocko's.

HONOLULU CITY COUNCIL CONSIDERS GROCERY BAG LAW

Maui, Kauai, and Hawaii County all have laws on the books dealing with single use plastic grocery bags. And now the Honolulu City Council is considering a proposal.   

VALENTINE'S DAY CROWDS

Did you get your Sweety something for Valentine's Day? A lot of folks -- mostly guys -- sure did. And that created quite a rush at one Honolulu flower shop. Brooks Baehr will have more on that. Plus, President Obama, with a message for all you guys out there. We'll show that to you, too, tonight at 5. 

     I hope you'll join Stephanie Lum and me for these stories and more when we see you for Hawaii News Now at 5 and 5:30. 

See you then! 

Aloha,
