Capt. Tim Young, commanding officer of the U.S. Navy Pacific Missile Range Facility at Barking Sands, had just one word to describe the field of nearly 80 exhibits and displays at the Kaua‘i Regional Science and Engineering Fair Saturday at the Kaua‘i War Memorial Convention Hall — “wow.”
Andru Alconcel (he was one of the Kaua‘i High School Key Club volunteers) said his arms were so sore they couldn’t move. His competitor, Dalson Cua, agreed, as the pair dueled in ‘uma, or Hawaiian arm wrestling, Saturday during Ka Moku O Manokalanipo Pa‘ani Makahiki Games (kudos to Julie Kaneali‘i…yes, kupuna ‘Ihi Kaneali‘i was there…as was her brother Koko Kaneali‘i…good thing no mo’ anymore Kapa‘a basketball).
Kudos to fans of Kaua‘i High School basketball player Easton Luis, who set up a media press box, ESTN, for Easton’s senior night Tuesday (congratulations to Coach Ipo Yoshioka and his team on earning the Kaua‘i Interscholastic Federation boys basketball title!) at the Kaua‘i High gym.
LIHU‘E — Two of the three girls soccer teams representing the Kauai Interscholastic Federation will be on the field, Wednesday when The Queen’s Medical Center Hawaii High School Athletic Association Division 2 girls soccer state championships get under way at the Waipio Peninsula Soccer Complex on Oahu.
Happy birthday to Julia Kenton who got to spend her special day at First Saturday with her parents, Jack and Mariella Kenton! She was enjoying listening to Linden Johns (he’s a Kapaa High School talent show winner) on the keyboards at the Bandwagon niche near Pono Market.
