  1. Suggestion for your log shop is to add Kukui High School license plate frames with Alumni on the top of the frame and Kukui High School on the bottom.

  2. I speak fluent ‘bird’, both orally and sign language. I literally give the bird to all who can understand my hands…Bird Lives (oops! that’s Charlie Parker’s line)

  3. Hey folks, how ’bout we do one cheer at the next UH game?

    One side can yell “Kukui,” and the other side can yell “Nuts!”

    It would be great.
