Nawiliwili Yacht Club Interim Vice Commodore Doug Tiffany took a break from his Race Committee duties to wrangle a hammerhead shark when one of the bells from the poles of the “fishermen (Mike Horita was one of them) on the mole” went off during the Halloween race.
Faith Campbell is inviting all keiki 4 years and younger to the annual Wilcox Health Halloween Baby Parade on Halloween. Go early to register for the 11:30 a.m. parade where costumed keiki (and their parents/guardians) can get a bunch of treats (no tricks) and be part of the costume contest, too!
Owen Kollar, 2, has been out and about — three big events in five days! He was with dad Justin Kollar on Wednesday during the YWCA of Kauai Candlelight Vigil remembering victims of domestic abuse and sexual assault before joining mom Sierra Hampton-Eng, Friday at the big college fair for Kauai families.
Kudos to Seth Womble who started to repaint the vintage pickup truck in Hanapepe during the Friday Night Art Walk (great place to visit when the Passports aren’t scheduled to open until Saturday). And, congratulations on the upcoming nuptials (fiance Megan was on hand to watch the new scene replace the often-photographed vintage rock ‘n’ roll flames).
Kudos to Leona Sa-McDermott (she was busy with both the Special Olympics bowling tournament, and the Hammers and Ale fundraiser for the Kauai Habitat for Humanity!) and Lisa Aki on spearheading the Special Olympics bowling tournament that combined with the Molokai Sweetbread (Mokihana Aquatics is taking orders for its Kanimitsu Bakery bread from Molokai, too!) fundraiser Saturday!
Marissa Tanji of Monkeypod Jam said the storm after Lane gave birth to one of their newest (pickled ulu?) offerings — pineapple salsa — after the Hubers weren’t able to ship out any of their sugarloaf pineapples because the inter-island barge was shut down. Jude brought over a bunch of sugarloaf pineapples (Melissa McFerrin-Warrack said she had a Pineapple Phrosty and an Ono Pop, and it was still hot!) that were bursting with ripeness and needed to get them taken care of.
Janath Hanlin of Janath Collections is happy, and Debbie Tuzon (she was going to check out lauhala master Margaret Saturday) is full of joy in their new digs at the Lawai Warehouse (Charlie Hiramoto …Shannon is on vacation … said the place comes alive on Fridays — especially at lunchtime!) where they celebrated Second Saturday last night, and we had football.
