Donovan Contract, Deadly Accident & Drought Forecast - Hawaii News Now - KGMB and KHNL

Donovan Contract, Deadly Accident & Drought Forecast

Happy Aloha Thursday, here's what we're working on for Hawaii News Now at 5 and 5:30 tonight:

ATTORNEY: PAYING OFF DONOVAN BEST OPTION

Jim Donovan makes $240k a year, but his contract with the University of Hawaii expires next March. Now on paid leave after the Stevie Wonder concert debacle, Donovan's future is a big question mark. Tonight, Keoki Kerr had a attorney review Donovan's employment contract. Why he says that if the school wanted to get rid of Donovan, paying him off would make the most sense.

WOMAN DIES IN PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT

A 60-year old Pearl City woman died early this morning after she was hit while crossing a street. Police know who the driver is who struck her, and tonight they say he was doing something a lot of people do when heading to work in the morning.

SERVICES FOR FORMER HPD CHIEF SET

Funeral services for former Honolulu Police Department Chief, Douglas Gibb, have been set. Details tonight at 5.

NEW AT 5:30 ON KHNL: DROUGHT EXPCTED TO GET WORSE

With major parts of the country already under some pretty bad drought conditions, news is not good on when those conditions will ease up. We'll tell what experts are saying, new on KHNL at 5:30.

WOMEN MORE WORDY THAN MEN WHEN TEXTING

Also new at 5:30, a new survey shows that women are more likely to send longer text messages than men. But researchers say, men, on the other hand, reach out more people.

We'll have these stories and more when you join Stephanie Lum and me for these stories and more at 5 and 5:30 on KGMB and KHNL.

Aloha,

Shawn Ching
