Congratulations to Waimea High School cheerleaders Ashlyn Agena and Zyana Vea on being accepted to cheer at this year’s Polynesian Bowl that was contested Saturday at Aloha Stadium on Oahu! Tori Kagawa said this year is the first time the Polynesian Bowl had cheerleaders.

Kudos to Mayor Derek Kawakami on installing the Express Line, and the number system of servicing for the Department of Finance Motor Vehicle Registration division! Perhaps a similar situation could take place when lines form at the camping sites stations so patrons can take a number and go visit the DougOut instead of waiting in the lines.

Broadway experience

Debra Spung, a high school classmate of Anne Runolfsson, was definitely in attendance Saturday night when the Zonta Club of Kauai Foundation presented its “Heroine’s Song” as a fundraiser at the Kauai War Memorial Convention Hall.

Kudos to Terry-Ann Moses and the Friendship House ohana on hosting the annual employers’ appreciation luncheon at the Kauai Marriott Resort & Beach Club Wednesday (and congratulations to the Marriott for hosting the event each year). Kurt Nagata did a fabulous job as master of ceremonies (what do you call bears with no teeth?), and it’s always a pleasure to watch The Friendlies perform.

Congratulations to Katy Matayoshi, Helga Efhan and the Mahelona Hospital Auxiliary on the rededication of the Mahelona Hospital thrift store! Hospital residents couldn’t wait to check out the offerings even before the refreshments, and who made those ono andagi?

More myth than fact

Here we are in early 2019 and once again, I am going to cover some health and fitness aspects that are more myth than fact.

Happy birthday, Michael Carle, who had a photo of himself published in the Kauai Times (how many of you remember that newspaper?) 24 years ago when he was 1 year old, said his mother Monica Carle.
