    Visitors to Kalapaki Beach get photos against the New Year sand sculpture created by Jeff Haigh, Monday. Haigh said he completed the piece Sunday, and despite it being rained on, was attracting a good share of visitors. Haigh said the sculpture extends wishes of strength, wisdom, health through agriculture, and well-being through the sea by way of the four gods — Ku, Kane, Lono, and Kanaloa — represented in the sculpture.

LIHUE — “You folks haven’t fixed the traffic, yet,” said a visitor, Ken Van Gaver, Saturday at the Kauai Community Market at the Kauai Community College. “It’s not just for us visitors, it’s for your businesses.”
