What a flurry of activity taking place during the weekend leading to Christmas, as kudos go out to Big Kmart Manager Anthony Florick and Kauai Police Department Chief Darryl Perry, who hosted the annual Shop With A Cop (nice to see Gini Kapali out and about, and mahalo, Bobby Thompson, for that cell phone thingie).

Theresa Monro is a light parade all by herself as she drives her 2012 Nissan Leaf around town. Theresa has more than 2,000 LED holiday lights (she said she bought out the Ace Hardware stock) fastened with painter’s tape in a way that all the doors and hatch operates normally.

People drove from miles around to Kukui Grove Center to see the last performance of Starlighters front man Danny Hamada. No worries, though. The Starlighters will continue bringing their big-band sound to stages across the island, just without Hamada.
