Happy Camper for Monday, November 17, 2008

Officer Dan Miyamoto was working on one side of the WorkWise Job Fair in Koloa and his wife Jan was on the other side of the Koloa Neighborhood Center. Jan was helping with the computer center while Dan was anchoring the Kaua‘i Police Department table along with Paul Applegate. Great job to Eric Nordmeier, Steve Farrell and all the WorkWise ‘ohana on pulling the event together.

Meanwhile, Curtis Chong of the Hilo Vikings soccer team was out with the girls playing pre-season soccer against Dan Agan and the Waimea girls. One of the Waimea coaches is Kehau Regidor who used to play for Kaua‘i and a coach for Kapa‘a is Tamalyn Hasegawa (almost as good a goalie as coach Mark Sassone) who also played for Kaua‘i High School. It’s nice to see the former KIF players give back in this way. But it’s not soccer unless you see the regulars like Kevin Devitt who was at all three pre-season games, coach Karl Ubongen who brought along daughter Ashlyn, coaches Bobby Rapozo, Lono Gardner, Wayne Taniguchi and William Trugillo. Even Kevin Gusman came down to watch, now that he’s home from his Oregon trip.

Ross Shimabukuro was able to juggle between a pre-season soccer game and getting the Kaua‘i gym set up for the KIF Cheer competition, Saturday. Good job to all three squads who did great presentations.

Sean Andrade was lucky the Koloa Rams had a bye or he would have been like the Hanapepe Pop Warner cheerleaders who did a presentation at the KIF competition before heading to Hanapepe Stadium where they did an encore performance for the crowd there and even had time to man the food booth.
