Stephen Fujii said Kaua‘i Police Department Chief Todd Raybuck is a good guy for letting all those people dunk him during the Touch A Truck event (what? Chief never told you?), and still had time Monday to visit Tommy Rita and all those sports fans at the Kukui Grove Center food court in Lihu‘e.
Coach Peter Rayno (the Ahukini Wharf Rats finished No. 1 in the Super Seniors Division!) and coach Ritchi Rapozo both said this is a strong Kawaihau Majors All Stars squad heading to the Little League Majors Division state tournament at the main diamond of the Bryan J. Baptiste Sports Complex in Kapa‘a (If you add a couple more features, it’ll be a complex, Eric Rita).
But you don’t need fancy to have fun like Jim Benkert, who was waiting on the field for the Saturday Bikes on Rice (slow roll) at Kalena Park where the Kevin Penner ‘ohana (the bike seat for Beck Penner is really cool) waited patiently for everyone (and how’s that cool canine perch?) to show up.
Kudos to Lexi Jones on another great Downtown Lihu‘e Night Market (the U.S. Postal Service has already committed to return next month for recruiting purposes), where John Rivera and Friends opened up Kress Street (The Kaua‘i Chamber of Commerce is presenting the opening of the Alakoko Store July 21 from 5 p.m.) with sounds, and Vanessa Faria shared a table with Justice Funamura of Creations by Justice to show off her hibiscus (and other plant material) under glass.
Taylor Garcia of Kealia Organics didn’t have to wait until the next bon dance for her chicken stick. She just headed to the Hamura Saimin tent (yeah, they had malasadas and flying saucers, too) in the food court.
