    “No, take-out only,” says Mya Smith, whose uncle Jason Ebesu created homemade ramen to cope with the chilly, windy weather Saturday at the Kauai Community Market at Kauai Community College in Puhi.

The weather may have canceled the Kauai Interscholastic Federation paddling and soccer events Saturday (Tori Kagawa said she didn’t get the message so came in all the way from the Westside — good thing the Isle Hoops Holiday Classic was taking place so she could take in some basketball!) — but could not stop the shoppers on the last weekend before Christmas, who flocked to the Kauai Community Market at Kauai Community College (the one in Hanalei was canceled, too), where Jason Ebesu was a hit with his homemade ramen (Elvrine Chow said there was a lot of ono noodles).
