Dickie Chang congratulates Launa Bacon on the opening of Blooming Tails, the Kaua‘i Humane Society’s thrift store, Saturday in the Puhi Industrial Park.

Ferdinand Dosono of Kaua‘i Kim Chee (it’s been so long since we saw them, the last time was at Times Supermarket, where the plastic containers of kim chee and namasu are displayed) said there is no substitute for the “char and smoke,” as the Kaua‘i Kim Chee ‘ohana (What? They sold out of the burgers and it wasn’t close to lunch yet) made their first appearance at the Puhi Park Produce. County Council Chair Arryl Kaneshiro was happy the Koloa Plantation Days (what was the color for this year, Arryl?) went virtual so they didn’t have to worry about Douglas, and Melissa McFerrin-Warrack said the event is available for viewing on YouTube.
