HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

In "What's Trending", Howard starts with a finale of NCIS. He doesn't give everything away, but if you haven't watched it yet, let this be a spoiler alert for you. 

Grace talks about a 6 year old boy with autism whose mother said he's very shy. He also doesn't handle loud noises very well, but he has managed to find a place for himself. Jacob Tumalan has improved his reading skills by reading to dogs weekly at the Carson Animal Shelter in California. In some ways, it's mutually beneficial. Jacob gets to practice his reading and come out of his shell when he reads to Pirate, the pitbull. Pirate listens and learns how to interact with kids at the same time. It's a heartwarming story watching the little boy take his mat, which he sits on just outside of Pirate's kennel.

It's one of the windiest places on earth. Tom Padham and Mike Dorfman played in the wind on Mount Washington in New Hampshire. The gusts were howling sometimes at 109 miles per hour and lifted them off their feet. They said it sounded like a jet engine it was so loud. Afterward, Dorfman wanted to jot down some observations, but his hand was so shaky from the adrenaline that his writing looked like a 5-year-old's. 

Billy V shares what has to be a record for highest basketball show. This is from the guys on "The Dude Perfect" show on CMT.
