    The cool weather brings out the jade flowers (Danny Hashimoto got a real fancy lei during the Kauai Culinary Market) for Elvrine Chow and the Thursday market at Kukui Grove Center.

    Members of the Aloha Dance Studio competition team work through a routine in the newly renovated Aloha Dance 2 site at Kukui Grove Center Friday afternoon.

Kudos to Tiffany Dick and all those Aloha Dance Studio performers on getting the new Aloha Dance 2 location at Kukui Grove Center settled during winter break. Tiffany has her dancers preparing for the JUMP competition and workshop coming up during Memorial Day weekend on Oahu, and to help with those travel expenses, they are hosting a Regal cookies and bread sale. Tickets are available at both Aloha Dance Studio locations, or from any of the dancers. Too bad it’s not Halloween — it would be great to get some Regal cookies from the zombies.

Mahalo to Michelle Jonas on the help with the results of the Kauai Interscholastic Federation qualifying track meet (Dave Walker of the Rotary Club of West Kauai, Thursday’s starter at the track meet, is getting excited about moving the Rotary Meet to March 23; yes, it’s a Saturday morning).

It was so cold, Kauai coach Jamilee Jimenez had two jackets and full socks on (she said she had to sit in the car with the heater going when she didn’t have socks on during last week’s meet) for the meet, and what’s with the rain to add to the cold? Even Joyce Evens was in the car watching the KIF softball game at Isenberg Park.

More track and field action comes up April 6 (yikes, it’s the same day as the STEPS Fair at Kukui Grove and the Garden Fair at Kauai Community College), when the county hosts its Mayor’s Track Meet for elementary and middle-school kids.
