    Meet Maria Almeida, the long-term-care ombudsman who has been working with the county’s Agency on Elderly Affairs since February. Almeida is the voice for people in long-term-care facilities and was helping at the county’s health and wellness fair Friday at the Kauai Marriott Resort & Beach Club.

Duquesa Padamada of the state Department of Health was getting her arm twisted about becoming the newest Kauai Lions Club member — yes, they had a table at the fair, too — and Rebecca Carnate (remember her from Rebecca’s Kitchen during the recent Kauai Independent Food Bank’s Dine Out for Hunger?) was with Janice Bond (she recruited Rebecca to the East Kauai Lions, and mahalo for the Cop on Top headwear that goes perfect for the Special Olympics bowling coming up Oct. 5 and 6), checking out the 60 vendors because of her nursing background.
