Anela Rapozo and Kamalii Haumea-Thronas were thrilled not only at the unveiling of “O Anahola Kuu Kulaiwi” book penned by seven students of the Kawaikini Public Charter School, they also watched John Martin and Scott Nakata unload a buoy which was discovered Friday morning at the Hanamaulu Beach Park.
Rapozo said she is related to Mayor Bernard Carvalho Jr. through the Asai family while Haumea-Thronas said her grandmother is “Aunty” Mary Thronas who makes a good lemon meringue pie for some of the Zonta Club of Kauai meetings.
Steve Soltysik is thankful for the angels in blue, Seaman Victoria Evan and Seaman Jacqueline Marshall of the USCG Nawiliwili Moorings, who retrieved his “peanut boat” during the harbor cleanup Thursday.
The peanut boat got loose while Steve was helping Bryson Vivas of the county’s Solid Waste division move gobs of “cordage” to the trash bin and the boat’s mooring got loose.
