Polly Mullen was thoroughly excited (and frustrated that her camera battery went kaput) following her trip from New Mexico via Mississippi and Memphis, Tenn., Thursday. She never expected to come straight to Nawiliwili Harbor for the Nawiliwili Yacht Club Junior (those Weatherly juniors looked sharp in the Swedish life vests) Invitational Series races where she got to meet townies Sharon and Doug Gibson (they can see everything from their new home). Polly is here house-sitting so has a lot of time checking out the Kauai sights, including the Lihue Hongwanji bon dance and the flying saucers … keep those batteries charged!
Jan Rudinoff (where is Paula with the coffee?) got to spend part of his Friday greeting shoppers to the Lihue Public Library summer used book sale, and Friends of the Lihue Public Library board member Jim Jung was off on an AARP assignment that Coach Fred Sasan said he was going to check out after shopping at the sale.
