Speaking of concerts, Hawaii Public Radio’s Atherton Studio hosts an encore show by Kailua’s Saloon Pilots at 7:30 p.m. this Saturday (955-8821) ...

Kailua’s Red Bamboo store has expanded to Aloha Tower Marketplace, so you’ll never be far away from fine island furnishings and home accents when you have the urge to buy. It’s right at the entrance where you can’t miss it ... Harold K.L. Castle Foundation’s new office building at Castle Junction is certified gold - Gold-level Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), that is - and it’s Windward’s first nonresidential building so honored. Mason Architects designed it and Constructors Hawaii built it ...

Congratulations to Castle High’s Shonelle Swarens.
