Critical DOE Audit, Committee Members in Hot Seat, & Pork Fest

Aloha!

Coming up tonight at 5 & 5:30...

CRITICAL DOE AUDIT

The Department of Education gets some harsh criticism on its handling of the bus system. A State audit cites wasted resources and money... and calls the DOE's management, "sloppy." Tim Sakahara brings us the details.

COMMITTEE MEMBERS IN HOT SEAT

After the Stevie Wonder concert fiasco, there are new concerns about some members of the search committee tasked with selecting the new Athletic Director. Keoki Kerr tells us who's being asked to step down and why.
 
WHAT TRIGGERED THE TSUNAMI WATCH?

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center issued a tsunami watch while you were sleeping early this morning. It's the first watch we've been under since last year's devastating Japan quake and tsunami. Ramsay Wharton has the story.

PORK FEST

And... it's all about pigging out at tonight's "Eat the Street" in Honolulu. Guy brings us a look at some of the mouth-watering dishes Oahu's food trucks are serving up, plus your weekend weather forecast!

Hope you can join me and Shawn Ching for tonight's news!

Happy Aloha Friday!
