    Sheri DeFabian, Wendy Akita (even the boss drives buses!), Karna Taylor and Aunty Bernie Brown of Akita Enterprises remind people that Oct. 22 through 26 is National School Bus Safety Week from their table at the Kauai Job Fair at the Kauai War Memorial Convention Hall in Lihue.

    Phyllis Nakamura, Susan Carlisle, and Geri Bulosan of the Tuesday class led by Evelyn Ritter savor the character of the Kauai Museum courtyard while working on their respective projects.

The Tuesday class (Phyllis Nakamura said if you want to see former Mayor Maryanne Kusaka you gotta check out the Saturday class), led by Evelyn Ritter (she did a lot of the artwork in the Kauai Museum), loves the character of its new workplace at the Kauai Museum courtyard.

The courtyard (Evelyn said it has a better bathroom than their former location that also had a lot of “character”) will come alive when Lyah Kama Drake and Chucky Boy Chock host Na ‘Ohana O Ni‘ihau Saturday during the museum’s Ohana Day (local residents get in free with identification) starting at 10 a.m.

Sharon Lasker said the floor of the Kukui Grove Center food court is done so Regency at Puakea will be hosting its Ohana Bingo Night Friday (it’s also Ron Wiley’s birthday!) with proceeds benefiting the Kauai United Way (kudos for the help in getting Wes Perreira and the Hawaii Foodbank Kauai Branch that trailer that helps in getting food to people living in the area cut off by the damaged roads!).

Besides Bingo, it’s a good chance to check out Tiffany Dick’s zombies, and how about them ghouls and goblins at the Community Haunted House that also benefits selected Kauai nonprofits.

Don’t forget to check out Edwin Vea’s Lawai Beach House restaurant craft fair, too … it’s on the way to the Kauai Pop Warner Football League games that start at 7:30 a.m. Saturday at Hanapepe Stadium.
