    The weather was gorgeous, there was no rain, wind, low clouds or traffic Thursday heading west on Kaumuali‘i Highway.

    Yong Kang Lin, Troy Diaz, Miya Reese, Shanmel Sibolboro, Cassidy Yamauchi, Koby Balisacan and Alexis Garcia make up the Kauai High School Key Club volunteer team that helped with inventory at the Kauai Independent Food Bank in Nawiliwili Thursday afternoon.

Mahalo to Janice Akiyama (and Chef Jason Sunada of Kokoro!), the good folks at FM97, and KQNG Radio Group (when is Ron Wiley’s anniversary?), the readers, and everybody who kept the Happy Camper’s birthday a secret!

Leona Sa said there is still time to check out the color run benefiting Kauai Special Olymics Saturday at Chiefess Kamakahelei Middle School that starts with registration at 8:30 a.m. And there is still enough time left over to check out Edwin Vea and the craft fair at The Beach House restaurant that starts at 9 a.m. in Kukuiula, and the Southside Cruise vintage car show with Harvey Maeda and the The Kauai Classic Cars at The Shops at Kukuiula.

And, if that’s not enough to do, there is the Kekua Aloha Foundation with Kaylynn Drake (did you see her in the Kamehameha Schools Song Contest broadcast?) and her ohana opening the doors to the Keiki Fun Day starting at noon at Kapaa Beach Park, and the fire knife competition starting at 6 p.m.

Stacie Chiba-Miguel will have her hands full tonight when The Shops at Kukuiula dedicates the Flavors of Kukuiula event to the Visitor Industry Charity Walk (it’s coming up May 11 at the north Vidinha sports fields!).
