Coach Kara Panui knew the mens 4×100 Olympic relay swim team was going to win. But that was one heck of a tight race. She’s off to check out the Hawai‘i Olympic swimmer Dr. Chris Woo at the Mokihana Fun Meet (it’s in Waimea, folks).

Actually, it should be good to see what coach Orlando Anaya thought about that race.

Hats off to Art Umezu for doing a great job with the opening night of “Tropic Thunder.” Nina Saraos was making sure the eight Kaua‘i High School Singers got into the movie all right, and Raymond Duarte (he even found a CD with a “Tropic Thunder” soundtrack) was there so you know the audio was top notch.

Mario Perez (Art said he’s the set photographer for “Lost”) had a new Canon camera to try out. He was talking about the G9. That’s the same one Alan Faye was talking about, too.

Ed Ka‘ahea (he was at the John McCain rally with Bob Bartolo) is eagerly awaiting the first Kapa‘a football game. He said the county is working to get Anahola Joel Pahukula and all the electronic media guys taken care of at the stadium at the New Kapa‘a Town Park.

Bob Bartolo had to leave AYSO practice early so he could take in the McCain rally.

Congratulations to Candice Klein on winning the Zonta International District Award. She was tremendous as Miss Veteran for the Kaua‘i Veterans Council and held her own on the courts during KIF Tennis. Good luck with college, girl.

Sean Texeira and Amber Thronas (George is her cousin) are still home from college, too, and got to help Art Umezu with the opening of “Tropic Thunder.”
