    The banana store is open as Josh Yothachai shows off a hand of Thai apple banana and Nui Yothachai has a hand of cooking banana. The farmers also had the regular apple banana, all ready to eat at Puhi Park Produce Saturday.

    Rosetatiana Warken-Ceballos uses that bunch of bittermelon in just one serving of saimin. She got a bag of kaduday (flowers) to try something new at the Puhi Park Produce Saturday.

    Hua Duncan of Hokuala Ocean Course, left, welcomes Sharron Weber, center, and Alek Ahana to the Contractors Association of Kaua‘i scholarship golf tournament Saturday at Hokuala Ocean Course in Lihu‘e.

Sharron Weber had Alek Ahana (he got a new Tire Warehouse cap in the deal) as a partner (Kellie Hines told her to let Alek drive) during the Contractors Association of Kaua‘i scholarship tournament that played under COVID-19 rules. Sharron said she goes back to her usual partner, Carol Pratt, in the next tournament (Council Chair Arryl Kaneshiro’s fundraising tournament Sunday, Oct. 18 at the Puakea Golf Course), and has already donated for the lucky golf balls.

Kudos to Bart Thomas for volunteering at the CAK tournament so he could get a feel for the tournament when the first Veterans Day Golf Tournament comes around Sunday, Nov. 8, at the Hokuala course. Sharron said she just got the paperwork so hasn’t registered yet.

Todd Ozaki and Beau Acoba couldn’t be at Puhi Park Produce because they were participating in the CAK tournament, too. But Dave Hinazumi had their backs, and Dean Nonaka must’ve found something good in Hanapepe because he was getting smashed at his tent. Clyde Kodani said this was another adventure as Helena Kodani got some starters from Michael Gregg and Ka‘apuni Nursery (Tiffany Lum had a whole set of different starts from last week, too) for Denise’s garden.

Josh and Nui Yothachai had all kinds of banana (those cooking bananas were huge) available at their tent. Now, what is that kaduday used for? Maybe Mayette Loseto (nope, Kenny Ishii rushed off to another meeting) knows at her “No. 47 house (no fancy curtains, Saturday).”
