Happy Camper

Congratulations to coach Brandon Fujita and members of the Kaua‘i High School Red Raiders boys’ varsity basketball squad, for their first, second-round victory, Tuesday night! Josh Bradbury was unreal, but more than that, you could watch the game by watching Josh’s dad, mom, and sister Jazzelyn (she even got to do the Camper imitation at the honoring portion of the program). And, since the game was so good, Travis Stine even got to visit grandma at Wal-Mart following the game. Kapa‘a junior varsity coach Keoki Cummings had to leave for work, but knew the outcome. Congratulations to the Warriors junior-varsity squad for clinching the KIF championship. Coach Keoki said it’s been almost 20 years! Hats off to coach Gary Maguire, and his entire staff (Pizzetta mo’ betta’?) on a great season! And, the good thing is that the game got over early enough that the Wal-Mart gang was still meeting.

Hats off to Judy Lenthall and her Kauai Food Bank “posse” for doing such a bang-up job with their Spring Healthy Food & Fund Drive kickoff and volunteer recognition luncheon! Judy said Helen Juliano and Michelle Panoke did all the work. Was nice to be able to chat with Gary Heu, and Carol Furtado, who was representing King Auto Center (when does the Caliber come in?). Ron Wiley was enjoying the fresh veggies, and Dickie Chang even had time for a bite between his emcee duties. It’s always nice to see Paul Douglass, and since John Sydney Yamane was there, gotta go check out his new digs by Hamura Saimin.

OK, ‘nuff said, it’s off to Po‘ipu (craft fair) for some deep-fried ice cream! Does Do-si-do (mahalo Brownie Troop 232!) go with ice cream?
