    Never too young to think about college, Owen Kollar, 2, is secure behind the Scholarship book while he helps mom Sierra Hampton-Eng during the HACAC College Fair for Kauai Families Friday at the Wilcox Gymnasium at Island School.

Kudos to Seth Womble who started to repaint the vintage pickup truck in Hanapepe during the Friday Night Art Walk (great place to visit when the Passports aren’t scheduled to open until Saturday). And, congratulations on the upcoming nuptials (fiance Megan was on hand to watch the new scene replace the often-photographed vintage rock-and-roll flames).

Since everyone was visiting the Chocolate (ever smell a chocolate pen?) and Coffee Festival, henna artist Drea Dooley had time to apply a design on her hand (she said it lasts about a week), and could even keep the design safe when someone wanted a wave. Drea is next to Greg Askew (yes, he had Chocolate Apple Banana Ono Pops), who was anchoring the Friday Night scene, while Candace Boxer (she had special taster mini-pops in coffee and chocolate) did the Chocolate and Coffee tent, where the real Amber McClure and the Amber look-alike, Nia Klutke, were busy handling both Moloaa Bay coffee and chocolate like the old days.

Kudos to Amy Hammond on getting this event going … Lauren Malapit had just launched her Kope Lani company with body scrubs,and Claire and Ben Fitt’s Outpost Coffee should start appearing shortly.

OK, time to go check out the Harvest Festival in Waimea.
