Kudos to Stephen Spears and all the Kauai Habitat for Humanity ohana on the ground-breaking for the first of 12 homes in the Eleele Iluna Neighborhood Project! Congratulations to all the ohana who will be creating their homes. Kaulana Finn said Tulsi Gabbard’s words of “Home is where your story starts” were most appropriate, and Tresame Lagazo’s little ones lost little time turning the lots into their “story.”
Kudos too, to Lyah Kama-Drake, Jane Gray and the Kauai Museum ohana on hosting a great Niihau Day honoring Mama Ane Kanahele … James Yamamoto was giving the young people a test, and Dickie Chang and Bruce Smalling read Jane’s mind when they showed up to videotape the event.
Coach Basil Scott broke away from National Feral Cat Day to come help score at the KIF cross country championships (great job, Kaipo Kealalio, Sean Magoun and all the Island School crew … even Brad Sato made it from the Friday night volleyball game). Kudos to the Kauai Community Cat Project on hosting an event at the Kukui Grove Center. Next week, the Kauai Animal Welfare Society hosts the second Howl-O-Ween Dog Costume contest on Saturday.
