Happy birthday to Patsy Rapozo, who got to enjoy a big breakfast spread (mahalo Jaime Arreola and the Duke’s Canoe Club ohana!) at the Boys &Girls Club Hawaii Youth of the Year Kauai Showcase!
OK, the buoy is gone from Ahukini, so now we’re ready to enjoy the first Ocean Count of 2018. Hopefully, the whales will see it to come visit the shorelines (Lani Broadbent Tamanaha is always a good luck charm at Ahukini) so people can “count” them and, hopefully, the government shutdown will have been resolved so we can get the results.
Mahalo to Ryan Girard for the results of the 10th Annual Kauai Regional Science Olympiad, and congratulations to Island School (Aliana Ho and Audrey Warner had a premonition about missing Kauai Interscholastic Federation wrestling Jan. 13) for getting the top spots. Kudos to Chiefess Kamakahelei Middle School on a great first-time showing at second and third places in division B!
OK, Susan Pittman has her Souper Bowls available for the Feb. 4 event so people are able to get their preorders in ahead of time (if you go in person, you can check out those great Raku dolls and even see Hubba Hubba, or Queen Emma). Souper Bowl day is Feb. 4 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. (just in time for the kickoff).
