Happy Camper

East Kauai Lion Steven Fujii was trying to juggle between his senior softball game and the Lions’ project at Puhi Park. Hats off to project manager Ron Garlie (daughter Erin Garlie is coming home to student-teach in a couple of weeks), Roy Nishida, Kelvin Moniz, and the rest of the Lions on a great job! Congratulations, too, to all those Kapa‘a High School organizers on a great career day! Annette Hashimoto was working so missed out on the ‘ohana shot with Alan, Tayni, and Bryn Hashimoto, at the career day. Gini Kapali (she’s a Kapa‘a grad) had some of her Transportation Security Administration workers who graduated from Kapa‘a, and alumni Leolani Rosa was excited about coming back to talk to the students. Leesha Kawamura had members of her crew from Hawaiian Air on hand, and Kaua‘i Police Department Sgt. Dan Miyamoto and officer Mark Ozaki had a lot of students asking all kinds of questions. Dave Bukoski of the Kaua‘i Fire Department was looking for a copy of The Garden Island, and it was nice to see Daniel Momohara with son Nathan Momohara. Of course, it’s always nice to chat with Nellie Okamoto (she’s waiting for Kaua‘i Interscholastic Federation tennis to start) and Aunty Joan Kealalio.

In fact, Annette was working so hard, she didn’t even have a new word at Friday night’s basketball game. Don’t worry. Even if Larry Fernandez wiped out the chili, they had more for the game. Greg Gonsalves did a great job transforming the Bernice Hundley Gymnasium from a career-fair arena back to basketball.Anahola Joel and JK were both at the game to share the Warriors’ third consecutive win in roundball, and since Ross Kagawa does play-by-play for JK, daughter Malia Kagawa gets to check out the games, too.
