Gary Maguire was supposed to be there, but somehow his plane got delayed, but he finally made it to the Kaua‘i Interscholastic Federation Kapa‘a-Waimea varsity boys’ basketball game, Tuesday night. In Gary’s stead, coach Mits (“Pizzetta mo’ bettah”) Yokotake was pacing the floor, and in the varsity game, when coach Mits moved from the loges to the lower level, guess what? The Warriors ignited! And, Annette Hashimoto missed the whole thing since she was still in Reno! Larry and Marlene Moises (she wears blue now) were in the stands, but the question is how do you get a picture to Tanya Nelmeida, who is playing in the snow in Indiana? Congratulations to grandma Nora Villanueva on her first grandchild, who just happened to be the first baby born on Kaua‘i in 2006. Mikayla Pacheco-Villanueva was born to Nora’s son Alfred Villanueva and Misty Pacheco. Thanks to Wilcox Memorial Hospital’s Lani Yukimura for making sure all the paperwork was in order so the rest of The Garden Island readers could share the joy.
And more congratulations start off the new year, as Chris Fayé opened her Razing Cane Design facility in the former Kekaha Sugar Company office building. She has one end of the building, and Fred Tangalin has the other end, and Chris said even Ray Nitta is up and going in the old judo place. Good luck to all, and if everyone is tied up with business, you can always enjoy the Bohdi tree behind the chain-link fence that Chris said has survived many storms.
Was nice to run into Joe Brun (waiting for Tina Brun’s plane) at the KIF girls’ softball game, and how many of you knew that Danny Carvalho’s great granddaughter (Coach Peter Rayno knew) is Wailana Borrero?
