UH Wonder Blunder Hearing, Big Island Dolphin Birth, & Rice Fest

Happy Aloha Tuesday! Here's what's coming up on Hawaii News Now Sunrise...

UH WONDER BLUNDER LATEST

University of Hawaii President M.R.C Greenwood told a special State Senate committee Monday that she knows more about the law enforcement investigation and the possible whereabouts of the $200,000 UH lost in the failed Stevie Wonder concert than she can disclose publicly. Ramsay Wharton will have the details throughout the morning on Sunrise.

DOLPHIN BIRTH ON THE BIG ISLAND

A 12-year-old dolphin at a Big Island resort has given birth to a female calf that seems to instantly recognize her mother in a video of the birth posted online. More details on HawaiiNewsNow.com.

SPRINT SERVICE RESTORED

A Sprint company spokesperson says service should be restored for customers this morning. We're told a few of the Sprint 3G network towers on the south side of Oahu were down at about 1 p.m. Monday. It's not clear how many customers were affected.

KARSTEN THOT BRIDGE TRAFFIC

An earlier start time for officers has helped ease the afternoon traffic jam in Wahiawa. Honolulu police officers will now be on hand to direct traffic at 1:30 p.m. instead of 3 p.m. For morning commuters, one Honolulu-bound lane will stay open from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. Monday through Friday. Tune in to Hawaii News Now Sunrise for a full traffic report every 10 minutes. We're also on the radio on AM 1500.

THIRD ANNUAL RICE FEST

Rice lovers are invited to the 3rd Annual Rice Fest this Saturday at Ward Centers. The event will celebrate a food that is a cultural cornerstone to so many in Hawaii. Rice Fest founder Ed Sugimoto and Chef Santa Miyoshi will tell us more about the event on Sunrise at 7:50 a.m.

See you on TV!
