    Lacey Love of Oahu is dressed to kill at the Dickie Chang Silver Anniversary celebration at the Kilohana luau pavilion.

Larry Rivera (nope, no Charlie Perreira, here) said he didn’t get to Kauai Kau Wela until “the big show,” Friday night, and could still make the Dickie Chang (congratulations on 25 years of Wala‘au with Bruce Smalling!) shindig (Happy Canada Day, Bev Brody!) at the Kilohana luau pavilion where June Jones made a trip to Kauai to congratulate Dickie.

Ed Kawamura and Janice Bond were hosting the Wounded Warrior Luis Vargas’ ‘ohana (how was that Kauai Poke Company Hawaiian style lunch?), and Jim Jung has his act together for the American Legion, Kapaa Post 100th anniversary of the American Legion luncheon (all veterans and their families are invited to this shindig, July 4 from 11 a.m. at the Kauai Veterans Center).

Lacey Love was decked out in style (did Sha Ali Ahmad and the Kauai Fashion Weekend crew with Natasha Kertes see her?), but Martine Garcia was the clear people’s choice for the Dickie Look-alike look.

Bo Domingcil and Jojo Kawamura were out in force, Monday, getting the Vidinha Stadium fields ready for the Kauai Hospice Concert in the Sky that takes place from 3 p.m., Thursday, and Ms. Hawaii United States Amanda Smith is excited about having a birthday on the same day as America’s birthday.

Happy Fourth of July, Kauai! Stay safe!
