It’s a good thing we have two mayors — Mayor Bernard Carvalho Jr. is expected to be at the Waimea Town tree lighting, Saturday evening, said Penny Young, and Mayor-elect Derek Kawakami is scheduled to be at the St. Rafael’s lighting festival in Koloa at the same time, said Brenda Sameshima. OK, so which one do we choose to go to?

Was it county Planning Department Director Michael Dahilig’s birthday?

Yikes! It’s Wednesday already and Sharon Lasker of the Regency at Puakea invites people to their Fourth annual Holiday Craft Fair and Rummage Sale (they got good stuff) from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. There’s even lunch of a Portuguese bean soup, cornbread and water available … Missy Saiki said the All Saints craft fair is Dec. 8 (not 3!) in Kapaa.
