Los Angeles native and gymnastics teacher Karla Villanueva-Bernal loves gymnastics. She has ever since she was a youth. She never thought, though, that she’d one day operate her own gym. But then after offering a free class at the All Saints Episcopal Church gym in Kapaa, her membership grew so much that she did open her own gym on the Eastside.
Fran Nestel continues performing with the Kauai Chorale and in Kauai Voices. She recently returned from a singing tour to Cuba with Kauai Voices, sang a solo during the chorale’s production of “Carmina Burana,” placed third in her category at this year’s Mokihana Festival, and dances hula.
