    Kudos to Leigh Feutz and Faith Campbell of Wilcox Medical Center for partnering with numerous other community groups to present the Keiki Bike and Skateboard Safety Day Saturday, where 26 bicycles and 13 skateboards were given away.

    The “rabbits” — Olive Dillberg and Seven Morgan — can’t wait to get a bite out of the carrots they found at the Kauai Community Market (and where were the Master Gardeners?) Saturday at Kauai Community College.

    Isabel meets Isabel Saturday as Isabel Tumpap, one of the bicycle winners at the Keiki Bike & Skateboard Safety Day, gets to meet Miss Hawaii Filipina Isabel Gampon in the Wilcox Medical Center parking lot.

Jan Rudinoff said grandma didn’t sign the form so he couldn’t be photographed while Paula Rudinoff shopped for honey with the vendors (when is Manu Trugillo off to college?) at the Kauai Community Market (the Kauai County Farm Bureau Fair is coming up from Thursday, Aug. 15!) before going to visit their granddaughter across from Bronson Yadao and the bromeliads.

Kenny Ishii (what? No Heiva I Kauai?) was busy shopping for the Ono Family Restaurant needs, and how did Carolyn Lum manage to get grandkids Noah and Gabby Smith to market and still make the Keiki Bike &Skateboard Safety Day presented by Wilcox Medical Center (great job, Faith Campbell and Leigh Feutz and a host of community groups where the keiki scored all kinds of goodies, starting with free helmets measured to fit by the Lions clubs of Kauai — yes, Gary Pacheco made the trip in all the way from Kilauea!)?

Lili Conant and her Hawaii Medical Service Association ohana couldn’t pass up the opportunity to bring their physical fitness program to the masses, and how did Val Faford from Hale Opio manage to get up following the youth suicide prevention rally Friday night?

Cynthia Chiang was trying her wings with the state Department of Health and the nutritional (how much sugar do you need?) exhibit, leaving Elvrine Chow alone to deal with measuring all those keiki for the ho‘ike (it must’ve happened over the weekend since there were halau parents searching for plumeria).
