Kudos to Devon Thrasher of the Major League Baseball Players Alumni on hosting a great baseball clinic (Glenn Mickens said if there was a choice between the Kauai County Council and baseball, that was a no-brainer).
Kudos to Tyler Yates on taking the time to work with the keiki in teaching some pitching pointers (those keiki were really smart, knowing the difference between a four-seam and two-seam ball and even the proper terms).
More kudos to the YWCA on the e ola pono, or Live United march and rally. It was a nice way to show support for everything our police go through to provide us a safe place to live. Mayor Bernard Carvalho, Jr. made it all the way back from the Pacific Missile Range Facility where they dedicated a building to the late Senator Daniel Inouye, and even had time to chat with the Aces players who recently won a World Series in Texas.
And where did Mel Rapozo find time to grab lunch?
OK, time to go check out Gerald Hirata and the bon dance at the Soto Zen temple in Hanapepe. Kiyoko Ikeda is supposed to have all The Change Academy students helping out before they disperse with their host families.
