Lydgate Park ponds finally open

With clearance from state health officials, lifeguards at Lydgate Beach Park have reopened the small Lydgate pond, also called the “baby pond.” The swimming pond had been closed since the first heavy rains in late February due to debris and a high bacteria count. The larger Lydgate pond has been open for about two and a half weeks.

For more information, please call the Ocean Safety Bureau at 241-6506.

Missing girl gets back home

Runaway Kyscha Ollila, of Anahola, missing since last Friday, is back at home with her parents, Kaua‘i Police Department officials said in a press release.

She is fine.

• On the front page of the Wednesday paper a story about a rescue after a near drowning should state that someone in the woman’s party, not the woman, actually rented the bodyboard she was using.

• Because the start was delayed by heavy rains last month, the Kaua‘i Society of Artists’ show, “Aina,” runs through April 28 at the Kukui Grove Center exhibit area next to Kauai Bakery & Cinnamon in Lihu‘e. The show is free and open to members of the public from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. six days a week, and from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday. While artists were originally asked to pick up their works appearing in the show on April 22 (as appeared in the Community Calendar on C2 in the Thursday paper), works pickup is now April 29.
