Congratulations to Darrell Horner, Casey Ching-Pacheco, Kylee Kuhlman and Donovan Pegeder of the Butcher and the Fisherman who opened for the first time Saturday at the Kauai Community Market (Chancellor Helen Cox didn’t even flinch in the passing showers — just like those people waiting in line for Ursa Swift’s Midnight Bear breads).

Kudos, too, to Eagle Scout candidate Bryce Yoshida of Troop 148 on finalizing his Eagle project (the roof didn’t leak in the rains, too) of the covered bicycle rack at Island School, where Dino Pabre was wrapping up his high school summer basketball league.

Ada Koene was trying to figure out how to get better photos of the Koloa Jodo Mission bon dance, and Ferdinand Dosono and the Kauai Kim Chee crew didn’t get home until after 1 a.m., Wednesday following their Fourth of July at the Pacific Missile Range Facility. Ferdinand and Greg Askew (he even got to meet Candace Boxer at the First Hawaiian Church), and a lot of other vendors at the Kauai Community Market also participate in the Kapaa First Saturday presented by the Kapaa Business Association (Kenny Ishii said the Veterans Day parade is moving back to Kapaa this year).
