We're following a lot of developing news for you on this Aloha Friday, but there's one story that's created a big buzz on our facebook page.
Did you see this spelling blunder painted at Kalanianaole Highway and Kawaiahae Street in Hawaii Kai? "Olny in Hawaii" joke some of our posters.

This gaffe is an easy choice for Sunrise's Friday feature "The Good, the Bad, and the what Were They Thinking?"
We've learned this morning 9 thousand marines will move from Okinawa to Hawaii, Guam and Australia. Reports are 27-hundred will shift their duty from Japan to Hawaii.
