Contractors finishing up work at Big Island harbor

KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii (AP) - Kawaihae will likely have a new home for vessels by the end of the next month.

West Hawaii Today reported Monday contractors are finishing up work on a new floating dock and parking at Kawaihae Small Boat Harbor.

The $4.7 million project is designed to take the strain off the West Hawaii harbor's crowded facilities.

Hawaii Dredging Construction Company assistant superintendent Kris Maile says the 445-foot floating dock has space for 25 slips.

Gravel parking areas will have room for 11 boat trailers and 15 vehicles. It will have a 40-by-60-foot concrete wash down area with two spigots.

Tina Davis of Kohala Divers says the facility will be a welcome addition. She says people have had to spend years on a waitlist for mooring at the harbor.

Hawaii can't prove wrongdoing by hunting TV show

KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii (AP) - Hawaii officials investigating a History channel television show called "American Jungle" are unable to prove any laws were violated during filming.

The state Department of Land and Natural Resources began investigating after an episode raised concerns that unpermitted hunting was taking place on state land.

West Hawaii Today reports the department said Thursday the investigation wasn't able to prove that producers filmed on state land or if any marine or wildlife laws were violated.

The show depicts "clans" fighting over access to territorial hunting grounds and using knives and spears to take down prey.

DLNR Chairman William Aila and Gov. Neil Abercrombie have criticized how the show portrays hunting in Hawaii.

"American Jungle" creator T'Jaye Forsythe says the state's investigation disrupted discussions about the show's future.
