Gov. Linda Lingle, once a Girl Scout and troop leader herself, spoke to 200 Girl Scouts and troop leaders yesterday during their visit to the state Capitol. The visit was part of celebrations for the Girl Scouts' 95th anniversary and the 90th anniversary of Girl Scouting in Hawaii. After the governor spoke and answered questions from the Girl Scouts, she posed for pictures. This group gave her an extra-big hug. Pictured in the bottom row with Lingle are Jinna Park, left, Lita Bolkein and Shaniah Paleafei. In the middle row are Cusmina Nashier, left, Damiann Kony and Diamond Agoo, while Mersaydeez Agoo and Yvonne Welle are in the back row.
