    Master andagi scooper Jocelyn Barriga (she’s also the Kauai Special Olympics coordinator) waits for the batch to finish cooking while Les Aki, in foreground, ladles out a completed batch, and Special Olympics athlete Chaunci Cummings, in purple in background, waits to package the morsels for patrons at the Kapaa Hongwanji Mission bon dance Friday. The Special Olympics andagi team will be at the Kauai Soto Zen Temple bon dance Aug. 3 and 4, too.

    Jim Jung (isn’t he a Kauai Museum Living Treasure?) takes a moment from distributing his peace tsuru, or Japanese paper cranes, to offer prayers of gratitude outside the temple to those who left before him Friday evening during the bon service at the Kapaa Hongwanji Mission bon dance.

Kudos to Mark Perriello of the Kauai Chamber of Commerce, and all those sponsors on a great state House District 16 forum at the Hanapepe Recreation Center. The forum comes on the heels of the Community Coalition of Kauai forum for County Council candidates that attracted 17 of the 24 candidates at the Eleele School cafeteria. Kudos to Jean Souza, Malia Nobrega and all those community partners!
