Kauai politician Louie “Smokey” Gonsalves

My wife, Ginger, remembers seeing politician Louie “Smokey” Gonsalves (1907-1985) at chicken fights held at her grandma’s place in Kapaa Stable Camp on Kaapuni Road, Kapaa, when she was a kid growing up on Kauai in the 1950s.

February is Healthy Heart Month!

Let’s celebrate, not just on Valentine’s day but every day of the year and make sure that we are doing everything we can to focus on having a healthy heart.
