Happy Camper

“Tropic Thunder” mania is sweeping the office, and Art Umezu is getting ready to welcome that film to the island. Lanaly Cabalo, Blake Jones and Michael Levine all have their thoughts on this made-on-Kaua‘i flick so we’ll just have to wait until they view the film to see what comes out.

Congratulations to Marvin Otsuji for breaking the Na Holo Kai record, Saturday. Unfortunately, coaches Dwayne Hauschild of Dos Pueblos and Tricia Vansant of Redlands were battling for the top slot of the Po‘okela division at the Kaua‘i Challenge tournament when Otsuji touched down.

Mahalo to Alan Faye for making sure the canoes got their due.

Judy Lynch had her cameras working through the final Kaua‘i All Girl Rodeo event, Sunday. She’s working on a new project, but in the meantime, if you want to check out her current stuff, it’s Pineapples & Palms Gallery on the boardwalk in Old Koloa Town (check out Lappert’s cookies, too).

Speaking of cookies, Lyle Kobashigawa (he was tending bar at the Kawakami golf reception) said he came out with a new cookie at Kaua‘i Cookie Company, but no samples since the seniors hit him hard during their state softball championships last week. He said they sampled and bought everything he could make. Oh well, the small guava/mac nut is still a winner.

There’re only a couple of days left to enjoy Kim Murakami’s food since Wailua Family Restaurant is getting ready to shut down this weekend … it’s worth a special trip before
