Happy Camper

Congratulations to Chris and Jenny Fujita (looks like tutu’s going to have to wait) on the arrival of Pi‘ikea, their second child, Sunday! And, thanks, too, to Joy Miura-Koerte, for making sure that we got the word. Yukie De Silva (Uncle John Kaneholani is still waiting at the games, and congrats on being The Garden Island Headliner of the Month!) knows the tutu’s people, so the food must be good.

Hats off to the Rev. James Koyama (he might be at Friday night’s Kaua‘i Interscholastic Federation boys’ basketball games) and all of the Kauai Interfaith Roundtable for the great Martin Luther King celebration Monday! Ron Wiley did his usual great job on the stage, and what a performance from Carolyn Hoeckmann-Percival (I’m glad you don’t need to pronounce this one), as well as the Kapa‘a Elementary School students. Tony Koerte took advantage of the holiday to attend the event at Kukui Grove Center (how come I didn’t have enough time to visit the Nakayamas?).

Back at the stadium, Joy Kouchi had to juggle between watching the baseball game and keeping track of the Panthers, and was nice to see the seniors out at the park, again.

Peter Rayno was having a blast at the Saturday 12-and-under games, and on Monday night, Lenny Rapozo was doing the coach-thing, with Gene Padilla and Charlie Ortiz.

And, where was Kenny Rapozo? Of course, the numbers all jived because Aiko Grande (there’s a little Grande playing for coach Francis Kaohi), Lorrine Lagoc-Agrade and Kori Sakamoto were taking care of the scorers’ table, with Jeff Venzon plugged in.
