Keline Yoshimura of Kaneohe made the fall dean’s list at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisc., where she’s studying for her BS in human biology ... Talk about multi-tasking: Eden-Lee Murray of Ahuimanu has got it nailed (as they said over and over again at the Olympics).

The award-winning actress also portrays the kindly grandmother and serves as director of the Hans Christian Andersen musical.

Bruce Bolos

Bruce Bolos of Kailua plays with Koolau Breeze at 1 p.m Sunday on the Ward Warehouse Amphitheater stage (596-8885) ... Kaneohe Sen. Jill Tokuda does it all. She gave birth to her second child, Aden Kenjiro Michibata, Feb. 11 and was back at the State Capitol a week later. Fighting for a better future for two little boys, no doubt ...
