    Kaua‘i Humane Society staff and volunteers don safety vests and get a photo before being released to unpack the two trucks containing more than 300 cats and dogs for the Paws Across Pacific airlift at Lihu’e Airport Wednesday.

    Alexandra Monks of the Kaua‘i Humane Society prepares to load a cat onto a plane bound for the mainland during the Paws Across the Pacific animal airlift.

There’s just one last chance to see the Aloha Dance Studio zombies this year. They come out on Freaky Fridays at 5 p.m. today at Kukui Grove Center.

The zombies are part of the Halloween tradition at the mall when they perform to Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller.” The selfie stations are also scheduled to be open today for a last chance at the virtual costume contest, and there’s a lot of places to eat so the Spooky Shop and Dine Out can be finished by tomorrow.

Mahalo, coach Wes Kaui, for paying it forward — lunch (before meeting the Kaua‘i Humane Society for the Paws Across Pacific animal airlift) was perfect. Kudos to Dr. Mirah Horowitz, Alexandra Monks and all those volunteers (four crews of camera people) for getting the more than 300 animals ready for the flight (the Rev. Wayne Vidinha did the blessing before the critters left).

Congratulations, too, to David Sosner, Melissa McFerrin-Warrack and the Kukui Grove Center ‘ohana on new tenant Target joining the family. The equipment for renovating the former Big Kmart store is already moving into place, and Eden Raquel had a Kodak moment when she found out.

Happy Halloween! Stay safe, stay well!
