Hopefully, 13 is lucky for Coach Brad Hiranaka and the Kauai Football League. Today is the day he finds out whether or not the boys and girls get to salvage their Oahu trip.
Kudos to Ed Kawamura Sr., Laurie Yoshida (University of Hawaii men’s volleyball this weekend!), and all those who worked super hard to give more than 400 Vietnam War veterans a well-deserved homecoming Saturday! It made for a long day for people like Janice Bond, Stu Burley (time for an extra Dr. Pepper), and Adm. (ret.) Richard Macke, who visited the Kauai Veterans Cemetery for the Veterans Day service too! It was a great chance to run into Vicky Ramos (Kauai Handworks craft fair coming up Nov. 25 at the Elsie Wilcox Elementary School cafeteria!) and the Quels.
Sierra Gore (she said she’s not related to Al Gore) likes to do church bells, but stepped aside to let David Crocker do the tolling 100 times Saturday when a lot of churches took time at 8:30 a.m. to remember Queen Lili‘uokalani on the 100th anniversary of her passing (All Saints Episcopal Church and Preschool will be hosting its Holy Sovereigns service Nov. 26).
More kudos to Clarence Sales and Bobby Kamakele on hosting the Veterans Day basketball tournament (Keith Burgess had to watch daughter Emma play after the Kauai High School soccer game with Hilo, and Coach Fran Constantino had to rush her daughter from the First Lego League robotics tournament off to Kalaheo).
