Prison Time, Bakery Shut Down, Windy Weather

Hey there ... here's what we're working on tonight for Hawaii News Now at 5 and 5:30...

PRISON TIME FOR FORMER WAIPAHU H.S. EMPLOYEE

A former employee at Waipahu High School is off to prison tonight. Warren Harada was busted for stealing nearly half a million dollars from the school. Jim Mendoza has more on that story, including how Harada could have drastically reduced his sentence if he did what the court asked of him.

POPULAR BAKERY SHUT DOWN

The state has had enough and shut down a popular neighbor island bakery. The drastic move comes after customers complained of "foreign substances" in their food.

UPDATE: OCCUPY HONOLULU PROTESTORS

What's going on with the ever-present "Occupy Honolulu" encampment? Tonight, Tim Sakahara looks into why -- and how -- these persistent protestors may be evading City laws.

COMBATING OAHU POTHOLE PROBLEM

Also, transportation officials with the City & County of Honolulu look for ways to solve our ubiquitous pothole problem. We'll tell you what they may soon try next.

WINDS BIDDING ALOHA SOON

And, Guy Hagi tells us when our strong winds will back off and what we can look forward to this weekend.

That's all tonight when you join Stephanie Lum and me at 5 & 5:30 for Hawaii most-watched early news.

Aloha,

Shawn Ching
