Harris and Honey Hyman of New Jersey have been reading The Garden Island online from 6,000 miles away. But on Friday, they were at the Vidinha Stadium Farmers Market talking about the amount of time it takes to run The New York Times using a $20 million press which stands, according to Harris, about as high as the light poles at Vidinha Stadium.
Harris said this was their 10th trip to Kaua‘i in nine years, and were wondering about the lack of wind turbines and dairies. No, Kaua‘i’s gas prices are not as high as some of the places on the Mainland, he said.
Similarly, David and Lynn Allio have guests from the Mainland who got to check out the first race of the Nawiliwili Yacht Club’s Junior Invitational Race. Actually, Lynn (she was at the Farmers Market, too) said as soon as their son (he’s a college cross country coach) and his wife leave, they have a rotating schedule of Mainland visitors.
Glenna Ueunten (she made it to the Hanapepe bon dance) was talking about her son Lyle’s summer schedule now that school is out.
Mahalo to Ulu Breen for getting word of the National Federation of the Blind’s picnic at Lydgate Park where they honored Brenda Viado and the Kaua‘i Vocational Rehabilitation staff for all the support the agency provides for the group.
OK, ‘nuff said, time to check out Carol Everett and the Critter Camp.
