WAILUA — This year’s Aloha for Hawaii Charities campaign kicked off Wednesday, and one of Kauai’s organizations is takingpart. Local paddling club Pu’uwai Canoe Club is one of the several nonprofits in the state that’s participating this year.
Much of the optimism and excitement to start the season has dissipated by now, if not fully evaporated. There doesn’t seem to be much gas left in the tank for a Hawaii football team that is coasting on fumes to the finish line. Saturday’s 38-0 loss at Utah State has been the low point for the Rainbow Warriors (3-8, 1-7 Mountain West), who lost the possibility for bowl eligibility last week and were just looking for some positives to finish off the year. They certainly didn’t find any of those in Logan, Utah, and they now have just one more game to temporarily right the ship, next week’s home finale against BYU.
