Congratulations to Stephanie Iona, Laurie Yoshida, state Senate President Ron Kouchi and the big ohana of people who coordinated the visit of Hawaii’s first lady Dawn Ige and a lot of state senators to Waimea High School for a closer look at the makings of the ‘Aina Pono for 2020 farm-to-table food program.
Kudos to Isobel Storch and the Friends of the Kapaa Public Library on the successful installation (Florence Toyofuku had a lot to write about in her journal) of the book exchange, street-side of the Kapaa Public Library (did you check out their fire ant detection kits?).
This common, foot-long Hawaiian reef fish is often missed by people who snorkel and scuba dive because they live right in the surf, where it is not safe to dive! In order to see them you have to go out beyond the waves and safely look back to shore where they will flow in and out of the reef with the surge from the surf.
