Now, if everyone was as small as Mia Ogata, we could all hide from traffic in cardboard boxes. Mia was having fun with an empty cardboard box Thursday at the farmers market at the Coconut Marketplace where Eric Young was getting rid of the last of the Sugarloaf pineapples for this season.
Nelson Kaai was busy cracking coconuts for visitors, and said traffic is why he stays away from Kapaa. And the construction in Lihue keeps him at home, too.
Hats off to all the Waimea Alumni and Friends Foundation members who hosted a great carnival Friday and Saturday! Roy Miyashiro was proud of the Class of 1966 who was in charge of the andagi, and Tammy Puu was pushing the flying saucers (although the line meant you didn’t have to push hard).
Kudos to Edwin Vea who did a great job emceeing the event, and kudos to Shelbi Shimatsu who came off the Miss Garden Isle and Miss Kauai Paradise pageant to perform at the carnival.
