Wind plus east swell always spells excitement at the Ammonia’s break at Kalapaki Beach, as comments such as “Did you get clearance from the tower?” and “Is that board short enough?” wafted through the gusty north winds from earlier in the week.
The cold weather (Milani Pimental said she got a photo of a rainbow ending at someone’s home at Eleele Iluna) pushed work details from outside to inside as team leaders Allan and Sylvia Kotanen of Trinity University in Canada moved to painting inside walls at the Kauai Habitat for Humanity’s Eleele Iluna neighborhood (some students could not escape –intent to raise roofs and complete floors in two of the Phase II homes). Kudos and mahalo to the Canadians for coming over to help build affordable homes!
Lihue Public Library’s Young Adults Librarian Sierra Hampton-Eng said they have a Teen Chess Club that meets Wednesdays from 3 to 4:30 p.m., led by Kauai High School student Takeshi Komar (he went up against state chess co-champion Damian Nash Friday during the challenge where Nash played against more than a dozen players, including expert-level player Chad Badgett, watched intently by Jan TenBruggencate).
And don’t forget, the Friends of the Lihue Public Library has its used book sale starting Friday (yes, it’s Feb. 22).
OK, time to go check out the American Culinary Federation’s 33rd annual breakfast from 7 to 11 a.m. at Kauai Community College!
