Occupy HPD, Early Voting Ends, One on One with Jordyn Wieber

OCCUPY HONOLULU PROTESTERS MOVE TO POLICE HEADQUARTERS

We're following developing news involving Occupy Honolulu protesters this morning. A small group has set up a new encampment right outside the Honolulu Police Department's headquarters. They've been there for about 13 hours now. The protesters claim City workers "stole" their belongings from Thomas Square and they won't leave HPD until the City employees, including the Housing Director are arrested. Another protester claims he was assaulted by a police officer who pushed him. Ramsay Wharton will have the latest live on Sunrise.

ONE ON ONE WITH OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALIST JORDYN WIEBER

She was pegged as the lock for the all around gold medal in gymnastics, but in one of the biggest shocks from the London Olympics, Jordyn Wieber was edged out by teammates Gabby Douglas and Aly Raisman. No Olympian has seen higher highs or lower lows. We'll ask Wieber about everything from her disappointing individual performance to taking team gold when we chat via satellite on Sunrise at 6:40. One thing we know, she keeps that medal close to her heart. "That first night after I got it I slept with it under my pillow" says Wieber. "Then in the morning, I felt underneath my pillow just to make sure it was still there."
