Congratulations to Darrell Horner, Casey Ching-Pacheco, Kylee Kuhlman and Donovan Pegeder of the Butcher and the Fisherman who opened for the first time Saturday at the Kauai Community Market (Kauai Community College Chancellor Helen Cox didn’t even flinch in the passing showers — just like those people waiting in line for Ursa Swift’s Midnight Bear breads).
The Rev. Kosen Ishikawa of the Koloa Jodo Mission said this year’s bon dance ring was bigger because there were so many dancers, and dancing can get pretty crowded in a small ring, and Chad Fujii (no Friday night at the mall) had the New Executive Club (no one’s left on Kauai from the Original Executive Club except Chad) out in force for the bon dance.
Born and educated in England, Frank S. Pugh (1886-1949) arrived on Kauai in 1921 to become the industrial supervisor of Kauai schools, and in 1923 was appointed principal of Kalaheo School, where he was largely responsible for the construction of a manual training shop in that same year.
Jane Gray said she went to kindergarten at Kekaha School, and Larry Manuel said the sign said “Absolutely no scavenging,” but his name is not “scavenging” so he keeps adding to his collection of antique items (how many of you remember the Toledo Torch? Larry found one that was almost mint).
Rick Carroll, a former Honolulu Advertiser staffer, wanted to know if you saw the spider web that graced the Soulgood Family performing on the patio outside the food vending area outside the mini golf where Aunty M was frying up a batch of pies for the gathering crowd Saturday at the Kilauea Night Market.
