Mahalo to Lisa Iida (she and her ‘ohana were at the Police Open House for Police Week) for getting the opening scores for the 3 G’s Nation league.
Lisa is still in middle school, but does a great job with scorekeeping for both the community and KIF league.
Chef Ed Mizuno of the Sheraton Kaua‘i had a busy day, Saturday, starting with the Visitor Industry Charity Walk and ending by taping a TV segment for the “Cooking with Chai” show in the evening. Chef Ikaika Manaku (he’s cousin to Kapa‘a softball player Loke Manaku) was with him every step of the way, and getting visiting chef Hans Stierli of the Westin Whister, Canada, involved as well.
Kaua‘i has had a lot of visitors immersed in local community events as Kaua‘i Visitors Bureau’s Edie Hafdahl has some travel planners walking in the Visitor Industry Charity Walk (hats off to Matt Humphreys on another great event).
Bill Countryman was thrilled that the Kaua‘i Marriott “owners” came out for the event, and Carl and Mary Ann Schleweyer of Atlanta, Georgia, were so impressed with the event, they’ve come back for four years, now. They even served as inspiration for Chuck Brady’s special “owners” shirts.
Debbie Kincaid was laid out on a wheelchair, but son Kyson Gusukuma was home from school so did the walk for her. The burning question is how come Raquel Kaui’s sister doesn’t look like what she looks like when she’s sitting on a horse?
OK, time to go check out Kenny Ishii and those pork chops with eggs at Ono Family Restaurant.
