Looming Teacher Strike? Gambling Bill & Super Blackout - Tonight on HNN

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

TEACHERS' FRUSTRATIONS GROWING

Is a teacher's strike near? In 2001, 99 percent of teachers walked picket lines. Could it happen again? Sure, but just how close are they to walking again? Jim Mendoza has an update on the HSTA's contract talks with the State.

GAMBLING BILLS

Will a new Speaker of the House mean a new view on legalizing gambling in Hawaii? Opponents say it will mean more crime, hurt tourism, and be a regressive tax on Hawaii's economically challenged. Tim Sakahara takes a look some of the bills making their way through the legislature -- and the chances of passing this year.

SUPERBOWL BLACKOUT -- BEYONCE TO BLAME?

Plus, was Beyonce's half-time show to blame for yesterday's Super Bowl blackout? We'll have an update into what officials are saying a day after the biggest football game of the year.

That's all tonight at 5 and 5:30 on KGMB and KHNL.

Steph and I hope to see you then!
