Happy Camper

Lawrence Eells had a nice way of being inaugurated to Kaua‘i — bidding for livestock at the Kaua‘i County Farm Bureau Fair!

Eells, who is the Executive Chef at the Grand Hyatt Regency Kaua‘i, said at least he got to sit next to the mayor who successfully bid on several of the 4H livestock.

Earlier in the week, Branch Harmony (whose little red puppy is not so little any more) said he’ll be at the Kuhio Day services (Aunty Janet Kahalekomo will, too, I’m sure) coming up Mar. 24.

It was nice to run into Glenna Ueunten who is all recovered from that hectic Shinnen Kai weekend and the youngest farmer, Matthew Martinez, who was helping Aunty Vicky at the Koloa Farmers Market.

After Saturday, Donna and George Schulze are going to be looking for homes for all those St. Patrick Day decorations left by Mike McConnell, George’s best friend.

The Schulzes live across the street from that Blue House in Kilauea, and Donna said she used to hire the little girl who lived there when she was little. Now, she’s grown up and works at the Princeville Library.

Welcome back, coach Brian Tirpak, John Spugnardi, and the rest of the Western Kentucky University golfers who will be finishing up their 54-hole tournament today in Princeville.

It was also as nice to see all the high school golfers take in the informative collegiate scholar-athlete workshop hosted by the WKU guys who were joined by coach Billy Iverson and the North Dakota State Bison team … for the tee-shirt, what is the nickname for WKU? Jet Levinthol missed out since they didn’t have a shirt his size.
