Edie Ignacio Neumiller (she’s a Zonta Club of Kaua‘i past president) said the Kaua‘i County Committee on the Status of Women will be part of the Friday program at the unique historical exhibit of women leaders from 4:30 p.m. at the Kaua‘i Society of Artists gallery in Kukui Grove Center.
It would’ve been nice to have been one of the 1,300 employees of the County of Kaua‘i Wednesday when Mayor Derek Kawakami and Managing Director Michael Dahilig (that giant chess set would be nice for checking out the new menu — it’s got something for almost everybody at TGI — at the Kaua‘i Beer Company) joined members of the county’s Employees’ Council in distributing school supplies to children of county employees.
People were counting their blessings (how opportune, or inopportune, to have the gas prices increase on the day people jammed the gas stations ahead of the storm!), Monday after Hurricane Douglas passed north of Kaua‘i, late Sunday night into the wee hours of Monday morning when Jasmine Kaohelauli‘i’s “found puppy’s” owner came to claim the lost canine.
Ferdinand Dosono of Kaua‘i Kim Chee (it’s been so long since we saw them, the last time was at Times Supermarket, where the plastic containers of kim chee and namasu are displayed) said there is no substitute for the “char and smoke,” as the Kaua‘i Kim Chee ‘ohana (What? They sold out of the burgers and it wasn’t close to lunch yet) made their first appearance at the Puhi Park Produce.
Nadine Riso of the Christian Riso Fine Art & Framing Gallery (yes, they’re open next to Sueoka Store!) was looking for the link to the virtual crowd (the Koloa Town boardwalk would’ve been teeming with people — especially on the day of the parade and ho‘olaule‘a! — during Koloa Plantation Days)…check out the virtual get-together, Saturday!
Alexa Jacobs had to catch a 6 a.m. flight (it’s a good thing we don’t have the Inter-Island quarantine, anymore) from Honolulu to be able and help at the packing for the Back to School Bash, Wednesday at the Kukui Grove Center, and Melissa McFerrin-Warrack was cruising the Costco aisles for snacks (was that lunch?), Tuesday night in preparation for the army of volunteers getting ready for the Saturday event.
Alisa Senaga of Honolulu said she doesn’t go fishing on O‘ahu because they don’t have any poles. Alisa and her sister Sanoe were visiting their grandparents, who said the young girls could not wait to go fishing (and who caught that puppy hammerhead shark?) after arriving here Wednesday.
