Much mahalo to Waimea coach and scorekeeper Basil Scott for getting the cross country results out in such a timely manner.
Mahalo, too, to Kula School for doing such a great job hosting the event. Ross Shimabukuro was able to squeeze in the event even if bedtime was almost 3 a.m. following their Friday night game (the pork adobo and beef stew was gone before halftime). And he made it back to the bowling alley as well.
The good thing about the trip to Waipake is being able to get in some AYSO, Region 941 games where coach Janie Crain was getting her team ready at the Kapa‘a Beach Park … ran into Lani Kawahara who was waving on the bridge while Takashi Yamada did his meditating with ukulele, and Bernard Carvalho stopped by to chat with his supporters.
Grandma Soly and Grandpa Baco Fernandez were at the game with a batch of chili for Cujo’s (in Kalaheo), and even after that, was up early voting before heading off to breakfast at Wal-Mart.
Congratulations to Janie Whitehead and her ‘ohana (they’re really all ‘ohana … try asking Pauline Ibia where the Oscar Mayer weiners are) on the grand re-opening Friday. Now with the store all redone and laid out, how about a scavenger hunt so everyone will know where everything is again?
And Dr. Dennis Haack did make it to the game after the Starlighters’ gig at Kukui Grove, but Leonard and Jason Ringor were at the game as were Glenn and Debbie Taba.
