    Sisters? Laurie Ho of the Kauai County Farm Bureau and Liz Hahn of Kauai Bettas enjoy incidents of mistaken identities at the Kauai Community Market, a partnership between the Kauai County Farm Bureau and the Kauai Community College.

Liz Hahn of Kauai Bettas said she and Kauai County Farm Bureau’s Laurie Ho always get people confused as being sisters even if they’re not related. Liz is one of the vendors at the Saturday Kauai Community Market and always has something new in betta development. Laurie is one of the market’s (she was also at the Kauai Culinary Market, last week, too) monitors and is already getting ready for this year’s Farm Fair that will run over the Admission Day weekend in August.

The Koloa Plantation Days festivities are in full swing, and Melissa McFerrin-Warrack (she was selling this year’s version of the commemorative shirts because Dena Peoples got injured) said she’s pretty “relaxed” as things unfold (Laura Cristobal Andersland of Salty Wahine will have kalua sliders on tap during the Kauai Culinary Market, Wednesday afternoon) leading up to the big parade (Wendy Kawaguchi of Sueoka Store said former associates are invited to join their parade unit) and Park Celebration, Saturday.

And don’t forget — Friday is the 5th Wave celebration that serves as a fundraiser for the Kauai Lifeguard Association with Chantal Zarbaugh (Cleve looked pretty good aboard that Jet Ski at the Junior Lifeguard Kauai island finals, last week) directing the fun and festivities at the Kauai Marriott Resort and Beach Club.
