    Basilio “Bunga” Fuertes, selected the recipient of the Ambassadors of Aloha, Malama Award by the Waimea Town Celebration, and Jerry Nishihira, now playing for the Rookies in the Kaua‘i Senior Softball league, helps Kelcey Hesapene — he ran over from the laundromat — with two bags of corn grown by Hartung Brothers for the Waimea Alumni and Friends Foundation fundraising sale Thursday at Hofgaard Park.

Aloha, Jeff Haigh (Daryl Dobashi saw him last week, but the closest thing l got was the aging Lunar New Year piece made with tools borrowed from Dickie Chang)…hopefully, we get to see Jeff on the next go-round…and, we don’t need to know where the sand is because the inconsiderate hands and feet don’t need company.
