Happy Camper for Sunday, January 6, 2019

    The car that was wallowing in the waters south of the Tim Bynum Bridge (formerly Kamalani Kai Bridge) was gone Friday but other marine debris give a splash of color to the coastline south of Lydgate Park, and you should see what is tucked in between the logs in the far back.

    “Call It Joy” takes the stage to chase away the remnants of holiday music in the Aloha Friday offering at the renovated food court area at Kukui Grove Center.

Happy New Year to Risa Clemmons, who was hard at work Friday at the county’s Sunshine Market at Vidinha Stadium (Glenna Ueunten had some mizuna left over from all that New Year ozoni, and the citrus is looking really good!).

She’s familiar with the fried and barbecued Thai banana that was being offered by Ned Chakano of Kauai Adenium last week at the Kauai Community Market at Kauai Community College that is a partnership with KCC and the Kauai County Farm Bureau (Happy New Year, Johnny and Terry Gordines, Amy Chun, Laurie Ho and everyone!), and the Kauai Community College (Victoria Aiu — did you see her artwork on that Rice Street mural? — said they go back to school Tuesday!) And since when did Ferdinand Dosono of Kauai Kim Chee start doing T-shirts?

Kukui Grove Center is also shaking off the remnants of the holidays (did you check out Serendipity Kauai across from the Fun Factory yet?), as “Call It Joy” opened up the Aloha Friday offering where Josh Pajela is becoming like Kent Tanigawa and controlling the sound and lights off a tablet.
