Watch for the Castle High Band and the Paniolos of Kualoa Ranch (pa’u unit) in the Aloha Festivals parade Saturday - from Ala Moana to Kapiolani Park at 9 a.m. After the march, you can head over to Aloha Tower, where Jack McKeague will lead the St. John Vianney school halau as it greets the arrival of cruise ships with a performance at 2 p.m. ... Alfred Tanaka is deputy transportation services director for the city, not Arthur, as stated in our Aug. 31 story on a Wanaao Road meeting ...

Just put the MC name inside the DD name and you’ve got the whole official package. Either way, she’d like to have your help planning an exciting, grass-roots town party. See page 7 ... Kailua folks are doing their part to help Gulf Coast hurricane victims. Take Ed Wary, for example.

Ed is also doing a fancier benefit for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation on Oct. 2.

Maile, a longtime Kailua resident, has built her Honolulu business to 15 employees over two years and has been promoting native authors, arts and artists for more than a decade ... Jim Wood says littering and dumping along Kapaa Quarry Road has gotten worse in the past few weeks - enough so that he was able to pick up 38 bags of green-waste one day in less than an hour ... Frank Alejandro of Kaneohe went all the way to Waikiki (which tunnel was open?) to direct a brain race.
