I hope your Aloha Friday is going well. Here's what were working on for our 5 and 5:30 newscasts tonight:
DEVELOPING STORY: 'DISTRAUGHT MAN' NOW IN CUSTODY
Parts of the UH-Manoa Campus were locked-down today after reports of an armed, distraught man on campus. Details are still coming into our newsroom, but we now know the man has been apprehended by Police. Keoki Kerr will have the latest information tonight at 5.
DEEP CUTS AHEAD FOR SCHOOL BUS PROGRAM?
The DOE is considering deep budget cuts that will impact its school bus program. If the cuts take place, who would be affected? Tim Sakahara has that story at 5:30 on KHNL.
SOME RESIDENTS IGNORE WARNINGS AFTER FALLEN BOULDERS
Less than 24-hours after boulders came tumbling down in Kalihi , striking several homes, some residents are ignoring a warning from the City to stay away. Jim Mendoza has more on that in a live report.
DALAI LAMA ARRIVES
His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, is now in the islands. Our Ben Gutierrez will have a live report on Hawaii News Now at 5. He'll tell us about the Dalai Lama's trip to the islands.
Also tonight, Teri Okita, reports from the Hamakua coast of the Big Island. That's where you can help sponsor a majestic, beautiful koa tree ... and in the process, help out the Merrie Monarch festival. Cool stuff. That's at 5, along with a live report from Hilo from Keahi Tucker.
These are just some of the stories, plus Guy has your weekend forecast, when you join Stephanie Lum and me at 5 and 5:30.
See you then!
