Poipu Beach Real Estate Update- After only 6 days on the market my new Koloa Gardens listing got an accepted offer.  I had a lot of interest in this unit which I had expected.  This is a little gem in Poipu if you want a place to live in that has low HOA’s, a pool, allows pets and is right here on the South Shore.  We’ll take back up offers so give me a call if you are interested.

Tourist Crashes In Front Of Lihue Starbucks
A New Jersey tourist jumped the curb in his rented white Mustang slamming into the Starbucks at Kukui Grove before plowing on taking out a parking sign, the mall directory and a shrub.  The 29 year old posted his $750 bail but is not off the hook yet.  This happened at 11 p.m. and he was arrested for driving under the influence.
Quite the vacation he’s having!!

Update On Helicopter Crash
The pilot that was flying the tour helicopter that crashed into the side of the Napali Coast on December 26th was completing his 8th tour for that day.  The National Transportation Safety Board said that an unnamed witness to the accident who was hiking along a nearby trail said that weather conditions were at 20-feet visibility with rain and fog.

It’s been reported that the pilot did not have an instrument rating, which allows pilots to fly at night and in bad weather relying entirely on the helicopter’s flight instruments.  The closest weather station is nine miles southwest of the site where a report at 5:56 p.m. on Dec. 26 observed wind from 310 degrees at 12 knots, gusting to 15 knots, 10 statute miles visibility, few clouds at 1,200 feet, broken clouds at 3,400 feet and 4,700 feet, and overcast clouds at 6,000 feet.

Save The Princeville Fountain Group Formed <img src=”image.gif” alt="princevillefountain“/>
One of the signature sights on the North Shore is the Princeville Fountain at the entrance.  Neptune is rising out of the water as fountains of water spray up.  He weights 200 tons and was commissioned by the former Princeville Mirage resort manager in the late 80’s.  While on vacation the manager saw a similar fountain in Cliveden, England that was owned by Lady Astor.  12 Italian artisans worked away at a 900-ton block of marble which was cut into 200 pieces and shipped to Kauai in 11 containers.  Once on Kauai it took another 4 months and 1 million dollars to install.  It looks pretty much the same since the 90’s except for Neptunes trident he uses to rule the sea. That’s been stolen twice from the fountain since installation in 1991.

Now in need of repair a group has formed to save the fountain.  “Friends of the Fountain” are looking for donations to repair cracks in the foundation and pressure washing.  They’d also like to get another trident and install cameras to make sure it doesn’t go missing again.  So far they have raised $10,000 which puts them halfway at their goal.

For more information or to join Friends of the Fountain, email sunset.ellenegrace@att.net.
