Waimanalo's Kaiona Beach boat ramp
opens after 21-year wait

A new small boat ramp at Kaiona Beach park is up and
running in Waimanalo. Above, Tia Villena, 2, greets dad Terry
Villena on the beach in front of the ramp. Valerie Mercado,
Tia's mom, said she's seen people using the ramp.

Below, a sign etched into concrete, referring to when the
community first asked for the ramp, and the length of time
to its completion. The Waimanalo community is planning
a party Saturday to celebrate the ramp's opening.
