Happy New Year to Noel Rivera, the hanai aunty and grandma to Nicole and Robert Stewart of Anahola!
Noel said Asher Daniel Stewart was born 7 pounds, 3 ounces, on Jan. 1 with the help of a midwife from Hula Moon Women’s Health on Jan. 1 at 5 a.m. He is the fourth child of Nicole and Robert.
How many noticed the holiday theme in the terno worn by Sheena Juliano during the Rizal Day ceremony Saturday? Barbara Green, president of the Kauai Filipino Women’s Club, said she designed the terno for Topaz Fernandez during Fernandez’s reign as Miss Hawaii Filipina. Now, she’s waiting for Monica Kawakami to want a terno so she can create another masterpiece.
Sheena was not the only college person home for the holidays because Athena Abadilla made the long trek from the East Coast to spend time here. She was with her parents Dan Abadilla and Susana Valencia-Abadilla.
OK, time to get ready for a crazy week in sports…KIF soccer at Island School, KIF soccer at Vidinha Stadium, and a big basketball game at Kauai High School gym…whew! Getting tired just thinking about it.
