    Meleana Higa-Booth, Hi‘ialo Higa and Mia Lai-Weber of Halau Palahiwa o Kaipuwai with Kumu Hula Kehaulani Kekua check out the audience before performing at the Martin Luther King Day gathering hosted by the Interfaith Roundtable of Kauai at the Lihue Neighborhood Center Monday.

OK, time to go check out Ku‘i at the County. Pua Rossi, a Kauai Community College Hawaiian studies instructor, said they’ve gotten a lot of requests for the Tuesdays at the Lo‘i (you’re missing out if you’ve never checked it out), where Josh Fukino does ku‘i, or poi-pounding. Josh said they’re planning on taking the event holoholo, and this is one of the stops. Check it out on the lawn of the Historic County Building today from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Kudos to organizers of the Martin Luther King Day events for hosting events that keep the legacy of King alive. Gerald Ako and Dale Shimomura even re-adjusted their schedule from the original Saturday scheduled walk and sign-waving after the traffic accident and false missile alert that prompted Joan Heller to come out and do more for peace.

Lenny Rapozo did more than represent Mayor Bernard Carvalho Jr. — he did a presentation on the Portuguese people, and County Councilmember Derek Kawakami (he missed the home run derby at the Kalawai Pinto Baseball Tournament because he was helping at the Kauai Veterans Center work day!) squeezed the Interfaith Roundtable of Kauai event into his schedule.

Do we have enough time to check out The Kauai Culinary Market at The Shops at Kukuiula today?
