Happy birthday to Annette Leftheriotis, who celebrated her special day on Friday, making it a perfect time to party.

Cami Matsumoto also celebrated her last day at work at Kauai Community College Friday. Now, she’s gotta figure out what she’s going to do with her days.
Glenna Ueunten had some tangor, a cross between oranges and tangerines, at the county’s sunshine market Friday. Supposedly, this is really sweet, she said. Donald and Janice Ishibashi were in town looking for New Year’s food and stopped by the sunshine market, but were looking for mizuna, instead.
