It’s a good thing Sean Smith of San Jose, California, came to Kauai to judge cars, said Harvey Maeda of Kauai Classic Cars. Sean (he’s the grandson of Liz Kerns of Reno, Nevada) hatches and sells snake eggs (he should’ve gone to see Mark Bonilla of Jamba Juice so they could talk about hatching eggs).

The elections became very interesting over the past couple of days — Clayton Hee withdrew from the governor’s race and is deciding on what to do (does that mean he comes to the Kauai Chamber of Commerce political forum for Lt. Gov. Thursday?).

Liz Hahn (congratulations on the good showing in the Betta Breeders Canada Show, where she picked up medals for 24, including seven first places and three Best of Variety, of the 30 bettas she entered!) is back at the Kauai Community Market after being sidelined by a knee injury, and Ursa Swift of Midnight Bear Breads (we have bread again!) is back home from New Zealand. Liz said she’s off to the betta convention in a few weeks because the event will be at the Queen Mary (Long Beach is a great place to visit).
