Gregory Hall, meteorologist in charge of the National Weather Service, Kauai office, will be joined by Scot Ferguson, a meteorologist technician at the NWS, Kauai office, in discussing Kauai’swet season of thunderstorms and Kona lows, from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Hanapepe Public Library.
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 (Kauai Community College 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).
Kauai High School teacher and coach Marissa Purcel was the first teacher to take advantage of Kumu’s Cupboard opening Friday in its new location adjacent to the Great Harvest Bread Company at Kukui Grove Marketplace. “It just worked out,” Purcell said. “I went in to check out my classroom for the first time today.”
The Rev. Kosen Ishikawa of the Koloa Jodo Mission said this year’s bon dance ring was bigger because there were so many dancers, and dancing can get pretty crowded in a small ring, and Chad Fujii (no Friday night at the mall) had the New Executive Club (no one’s left on Kauai from the Original Executive Club except Chad) out in force for the bon dance.
