In this Wayne's World, there's no heavy-metal dudes, no Led Zeppelin, no Queen, but about as much understandable English. This is the world of Wayne Toups and Zydecajun, who will have the local yokels grooving twice in front of the Miller Stage on Sunday night at the Ventura County Fair in Seaside Park.

The Uchinaaguchi class opened with a "good morning. " " Ukimi soo chii ," said the teacher, Chogi Higa. " Ukimi soo chii ," the students repeated. For student Tokie Koyama, the greeting was a bittersweet echo of her childhood on Okinawa. "It makes me cry," she told the class. "I miss home. " Famous for its military bases and World War II battlefields, the Japanese island chain of Okinawa is also home to a language as different from Japanese as English is from German.
