As the community’s food pantries run dry, folks are thinking up creative ways to fill the shelves. Kahaluu Neighborhood Board is now collecting nonperishable food items at each monthly board meeting (next one is 7 p.m. Feb. 11). The food goes directly to the food pantry at KEY Project, where the board meets. “The goal is to create a continuous stream of donated foods to needy members of our community,” explains board treasurer Dan Bender, who suggested the drive. “We anticipate that this will become more and more important in the months ahead” ...

Speaking of food, TD Food Group announced several promotions recently, including these new general managers for Windward area Pizza Huts: Congratulations to Edward Lindstrom at Temple Valley (Koolau Center), Jose Marie Sacramento at Enchanted Lake, Lynette “Peaches” Su’a at Aikahi and Russell Takase at Windward City Shopping Center, at your service ... Gary Sinise, who wears many hats, and his Lieutenant Dan Band play at 7 p.m. Jan. 30 in the K-Bay Lanes parking lot, headlining a USO Celebrity Show there (254-7597). In recent years, Gary’s Lt. Dan character (of Forrest Gump fame) has morphed into police Det. Matt Taylor on the TV hit CSI: New York ...

Also, at the Marine base exchange: no more plastic bags for customers, but plenty of reusable ones for sale ... As ‘Olelo completes the encore airing of HBO’s TV series Addiction, Rich Figel reminds us that Hina Mauka’s Andy Anderson has a locally produced talk show, Recovery, which is available for downloads through the OleloNet On Demand website. On TV, view it at 10:30 p.m. Thursdays on Channel 52 - or call Andy at 447-5227 ... American Savings Bank has promoted Kailua’s Laurie Cateriano to senior vice president of cash management services ...

Kamakani Enterprises Inc. (in Building 28C of Kapaa Quarry Industrial Park) has more cash lately. It’s proud of its TikiMaster.com website, which is being featured on a Verizon TV commercial for the new BlackBerry Storm. (Look for the onscreen hula girl ornament.) Owner Jerome Coudrier says the web traffic has increased 30 percent since the ad began airing this month. “As one of the largest emporiums of Hawaiian art,” he says, “we were thrilled to be featured in the ad” ...

You can watch the ad and everything else on a “new” TV set from the Castle High athletics department. They’re not flatscreen TVs, says Sam Kakazu, but the price is right. The Knights are selling 20-inch Panasonic hotel TVs for $40 each. Come buy ‘em and haul ‘em away between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. this Sunday at the upper parking lot (near the tennis courts). Proceeds help the baseball and softball programs ...

Did anyone else experience that stinky, smelly odor oozing from somewhere along Likelike last week on the way to the tunnels, near the H-3 over-pass? Whew! Too strong to be rotten bananas ... My daughter Kelly and I enjoyed lunch (and much better smells) at A Cup of Tea on Uluniu Street Jan. 10. Even noticed a few men partaking of the offerings (without extending their pinkie fingers). Only thing is, I parked in the stall with a jammed meter right in front. You guessed it: a $35 ticket was served on my car. Surely they will accept my argument on that one, or maybe I should recommend the broccoli and cheese soup with chicken curry sandwiches
