[ Coconut Wireless ] HYPA LOCAL Most people keep tabs on politicians, especially at the local level, only when they’re actively campaigning or embroiled in a scandal. But elected officials don’t go into hibernation the rest of the time, and neither do their reelection efforts. This week’s poster boy: Maui Rep. Kyle Yamashita (D, 12th District). When he ran last year, we noted that “Yamashita’s spending report reveals most of his big campaign contributions come from outside his district.” Flash-forward 11 months and the leopard hasn’t changed his spots. A look at Yamashita’s most recent filing with the state Campaign Spending Commission shows that, in January, he had to return checks from WalMart ($1,300), Altria Client Services Inc. ($2,000) and tobacco giant Reynolds American ($170), which are based out of Arkansas, Virginia and North Carolina, respectively. The reason Kyle had to give the money back? He’d already exceeded the limit for non-resident contributions. Overall, of the $6,750 he’s raised, a mere $650 came from Maui and none from his district. Certainly raises questions about loyalty, among other things… Last month, I heard rumblings from multiple sources about the Maui Interscholastic League’s (MIL) plan to hold half of this season’s high school football games in the afternoon. Given what an event the games are, the uproar wasn’t surprising. What’s nice is that people didn’t just get mad, they got active: according to an August 11 Maui News report, MIL received more than $30,000 from the community in the span of a week— enough to turn the lights on. Schedules posted on the MIL Web site now have every regular season varsity football game save one slated to begin at 7pm. And all is right with the universe… As I type these words, the hurricane formerly known as Felicia (or is it the Felicia formerly known as a hur-

ricane?) is tossing a few rain drops against the window, and there’s word of east swells and more rain and maybe some wind to come. Looks like we’re going to dodge the bullet, though. Rob Parsons gets into the issue of preparedness in this week’s Rob Report (pg. 7), so I’ll instead tackle a less serious but still important matter: media coverage. In the days leading up to Felicia’s arrival, most press reports (especially on television but in the dailies as well) emphasized the (potential) threat, and treated common sense precautionary measures as an afterthought. That’s not surprising; in fact, quite the opposite. Which is the problem. Railing against sensationalism is beyond cliché, and it’s tough to blame any media company for trying to spice up the headlines (not sure if you’ve heard, but this business ain’t exactly booming). Still—it’d be nice to see something that falls this squarely into the public safety sphere get a more, excuse the phrase, fair and balanced treatment. As with swine flu and countless stories before it, hysteria is exactly what we shouldn’t be promoting. And yet hysteria— like its not-so-distant cousin sex—sells…

LOCAL Last week, I took a swipe at the Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA) for chastising a Saturday Night Live bit that made fun of tourists, but supporting the new horror/thriller flick A Perfect Getaway, which has a psycho killer picking off honeymooners on the Na Pali Coast. That led a reader to send the following (anonymous) reply: “It’s HTA’s job to protect and promote the state’s image and to encourage people to come here. That includes film crews. The difference between the SNL skit and the movie is that the latter was filmed on-location in Hawaii, while the former was shot in a studio in New York City. Get it?” Interesting point. One problem though: According to the Internet Movie Database (, most of A Perfect Getaway was shot in Puerto Rico, no doubt because of a law, spelled out on the Puerto Rico Film Commission Web site, that: “…offers a tax credit through

Love is in the Air

With friends like these... [the] Treasury Department equivalent to 40 percent of budget items paid to Puerto Rico residents’ businesses…” So Hawaii gets the negative image, and none of the benefits... On August 11 the state Campaign Spending Commission told Rep. Neil Abercrombie he couldn’t transfer $900,000 from his congressional campaign coffers into his gubernatorial war chest. Adding a jab to the gut punch: Abercrombie’s opponent, Honolulu Mayor Mufi Hanneman, is allowed to dip into his mayoral kitty because it’s under state regulation. According to a report, Abercrombie’s lawyers are weighing an appeal. Good call… Hey, great news! As reported on August 11 by the Honolulu Star-Bulletin, the Trump International Hotel and Tower Waikiki Beach Walk on Oahu is going to keep the Trump name for “a long time, if not forever,” according to Donald Trump Jr. Why the need for assurance? Seems California developer Irongate, which is building the tower, is being sued by a group of buyers who purchased units in 2006. In the same arti-

cle, Trump Jr. hints that Daddy’s company is interested in other Hawaii projects, possibly a golf course on an unnamed neighbor island. Wow—a Trump golf course. Sounds like the future to me…

NOT LOCAL Less than a decade after, ahem, allegedly sabotaging their own product and recalling and destroying all models of the EV1 (if you haven’t already, see the 2006 doc Who Killed the Electric Car? for more), General Motors is trotting out...a new electric car! The company is claiming the plug-in Chevy Volt (actual tagline: “The Future is Electrifying”) gets up to 230mpg, and other car companies are reportedly following suit. I don’t mean to be cynical, but it would seem that until we generate the bulk of our power using something other than fossil fuels, this is a deck-chairs-on-theTitanic sort of thing. On the bright side: all the icebergs are melting. MTW To share or save this article, type:

Swimming with sharks Shark tour ban raises questions about our relationship with the apex predator



may find shark tours OK, but they don’t fit on Maui, she said. Based on testimony at the August 6 meeting, shark tours have little support. Public testifiers and officials spoke vehemently in favor of the ordinance, saying shark tour operations threaten public

safety and marine life and are insensitive to Hawaiian culture. Testifier Gordon Cockett, who has lived on Maui all of his 78 years, said shark tours concern him because the mano hold cultural significance and are aumakua (guiding spirits) for many Hawaiian families. “To use [sharks] as entertainment for newcomers is a tragedy,” he said. But what about dive tours that frequently encounter, and incidentally “view,” sharks? In her testimony to the

council on behalf of the Maui Nui Marine Resource Council (MNMRC), Rene Umberger supported the bill but asked for clarification on its language. The bill prohibits the feeding and viewing of sharks. But does that mean viewing in association with feeding, asked

iven the chance to jump in a cage and swim with sharks, watching them approach from the ocean depths just below your pruning toes, would you? If you answered “yes,” you’ll have to go to Oahu, because shark tours won’t make it to Maui any time soon. On August 6, a recommendation to pass a bill banning shark tour operations in Maui County was passed unanimously by the County Council Economic Development, Agriculture and Recreation Committee. The ordinance, introduced by Councilmember Wayne Nishiki, would prevent “the collection, distribution, marketing, or advertising of tickets...or other business activity…to venture into ocean waters to feed or otherwise attract and view sharks for entertainment.” Shark tours as they exist on Oahu have not been launched in Maui County. Council Chair Jo Anne Johnson said in a recent interview that it’s better to be proactive now rather than reactive later. Other jurisdictions


Umberger, who has conducted about 10,000 scuba dive tours since 1983, some of which have encountered sharks. Councilmember Sol Kaho‘ohalahala questioned whether such tours truly experienced “chance encounters” or were pursuing the viewing of sharks. Predicting where sharks are most likely to be naturally is the same as pursuing, he said. “I think of pursuit as chasing,” Umberger said in a recent interview. “Our goal is to observe the animals [naturally]. To do that

you have to be calm and respectful and especially non-threatening.” Kahu Charles Kauluwehi Maxwell Sr. told the Council that even looking for sharks as part of an organized tour alters their behavior. Johnson echoed that concern. “Anytime that you enter, in my view, any ocean environment you are an invader,” she said. A study by the University of Hawaii published in July suggested that shark tours on Oahu aren’t causing danger to either humans or the sharks’ habitat. But Nishiki read aloud to the Council from two articles documenting shark attacks off the coasts of Florida and South Africa that blame shark tours for causing sharks to associate humans with food. Reiterating that MNMRC is behind the bill, Umberger said she thinks a lot of people are afraid of sharks, and equate that fear with respect. “I’m not afraid of sharks,” she said. “I think once you’ve spent time with them underwater it’s a different relationship.” MTW

A perfect storm

Power without knowledge redux

Is Maui prepared for a hurricane? The short answer: no s I write this, the remaining bluster of former-Hurricane Felicia is churning steadily toward Hawaii. It shall soon be known whether it will smack Maui with tropical storm fierceness, or if we’re merely in for a few wet days. Much like Hurricane Flossie two years ago, Felicia’s lack of stamina may be lulling the community and disaster preparedness experts into a false sense of security. Sure, we stocked up on canned goods, batteries, candles and TP. But really, hurricanes hit Hawaii only once in a blue moon, right? And even when one does hit, with all the emphasis on renewable energy and food sustainability, surely we’re prepared for the worst, aren’t we? It’s been 17 years since Iniki buzzsawed houses and resorts on Kauai, changing life on the Garden Isle for years. But we are early in the tropical storm season of an El Nino year—the same weather cycle that brought Iniki. With that in mind, it’s time to examine our ability to cope with a weather disaster, and to draw lessons from the last time a sizeable tempest shattered our paradisiacal tranquility.

The title of this week’s column is an homage to a December 2006 LC Watch. Why? Because the subject matter is almost identical; only the date and a few details have changed.


he “Storm of 1980” was a potent winter gale, a Kona lowpressure cyclone that brought Maui and all of Hawaii to its knees. The severe weather warnings went out over the nightly news, in the days before the Internet allowed us to view Doppler radar, wind speed projections and satellite photos. As a Maui malahini of a mere two years, I had little clue as to what was in store. After my day job waiting tables in Wailuku, I drove my old Toyota back to Kuau, as skies darkened and winds began to howl. A roommate called to tell me the restaurant was closing for dinner to brace for the storm. However, he said, they were starting a poker game, and he urged me to drive back to town to join them. Against my better judgment, I did exactly that. My decision saved me—or rather, my car. Shortly after I left, a neighbor later told me, a huge eucalyptus branch came down on the driveway where I had been parked. By the time the poker posse disbanded, the rain had become a steady downpour. The storm raged throughout the night, knocking out power. Then, the following day, the skies cleared. This

LC Watch

For those who remember Iniki’s wrath, the threat is real. Kona storm wasn’t over—not by a long shot—but the break did give us a chance to go out and investigate the damage. igh Street leaving Wailuku toward Waikapu was coned off and closed. Winds sweeping down from the West Maui Mountains had toppled a row of utility poles, and they leaned over the highway at a precarious angle. In Olinda, the eucalyptus trees lining the road had become a massive game of pick-up sticks, played with chain saws and backhoes. Power wasn’t restored in Olinda or Hana for 10 days. Tragically, a man was killed when the front lanai of his house collapsed upon him. Meanwhile, 20-foot surf battered the Kihei and Lahaina shores, plucking boats from their moorings and tossing them onto the beaches. Word came that a coworker, celebrating his birthday, had tried to pass through flooding near Suda Store. Police were limiting access to vehicles with four-wheel drive or high suspensions. But they couldn’t dissuade our friend, driving the used Mercedes-Benz he had just shipped from California, from attempting to reach his party. As he drove through the intersection, a surge of water from the Upcountry gulch swept him into the drainage outflow and toward the crashing surf. Bobbing like a cork, water cascading over his hood, he soon realized he had to get out of the car or be washed out to sea. He tried to open the door, but water gushed in and slammed it shut. With all his strength, he put his shoulder to the door like an offensive lineman to a tackling dummy, and pushed. The next thing he remembered was being helped into dry clothes in an oceanfront condo, where passers-by had pulled him from the surf. His car is still out there, 30 years later, and has become a curiosity to scuba divers.



hat would it take for Maui to truly be prepared for the impacts of a hurricane-

strength storm? A de-centralized electric grid would help, with more sites providing regional power generation. Likewise, underground transmission lines, not susceptible to dropping limbs or falling trees, should be installed. Maui Electric’s version of “hurricane-proof” facilities are 65foot towers that march up Kaahumanu Avenue and out Honoapiilani Highway, marring our otherwise scenic vistas. Water catchment systems could provide backup if water supply lines shut down; many communities also distribute rain barrels to help conserve potable drinking water supplies. West Maui’s main roadways are only feet from the ocean in places, and alternate routes must be built. Of course, people have said that for well over 30 years. East Maui is similarly vulnerable, and there are dozens of places where heavy rain could bring landslides down upon the Hana Highway—or send the road itself tumbling down the precipitous slopes. Hospital space is tight, and emergency food supplies are slim at best. A new administration would be wise to assist residents in establishing backyard, community and school gardens, with surplus designated to the Maui Food Bank, as the Haliimaile Community Garden is now doing. On the bright side, empty hotel rooms could double as emergency quarters for those who lost their homes to hurricane winds. There’s one other item that can’t be overlooked in a crisis: beer. Could it be time to open a shop with home-brewing supplies, just in case we need backup for what Anheuser-Busch ships in? Thankfully it looks like Felicia won’t be hitting Maui hard. Shoots brah, you like one ’nutha Bud? MTW

Here’s what happened back in 2006: Adjudication Board member Joe Tanaka was questioning Sean McDaniel, owner of Henry’s Bar & Grill, about the particulars of a case that involved shots of Jagermeister. Specifically, Tanaka wanted to know what a shot of Jager was and if it had alcohol in it. McDaniels answered, quite plainly: “It’s an herbal liqueur.” Seems like a member of an agency tasked with regulating the sale and consumption of alcohol should have already known that, but fine—lesson learned. Or not. At the most recent meeting of the Adjudication Board, held August 6, the lone case on the docket—a charge of over-serving against Mulligan’s at the Wharf—again involved, among many other things, Jagermeister. And again Tanaka, who has also served on the Liquor Commission, asked what Jager was and what its alcohol content was. This time, he got his answer from Director Frank Silva, who offered a brief explanation of the intricacies of a Jager Bomb, adding that the drink is “terrible—or so they tell me.” We’re not expecting every member of the board to have an encyclopedic knowledge of booze. But fer cryin’ out loud, Joe—you had almost three years to get this straight.

Amount the average Hawaii resident spends annually on gasoline

William Dillon was released in November after 26 years in prison when a DNA test ruled him out as the murderer. He was the second Florida man recently freed by DNA after being positively identified at trial by a star police dog, Harass II. Bill Preston, the dog’s trainer, had sworn Harass II could amazingly track scents through water and after months of site contamination. In June, the Innocence Project of Florida said as many as 60 other convicts might have been “identified” by Harass II. According to an Orlando Sentinel report, only one judge thought to actually test Harass II’s ability in a courtroom, and he wrote that the dog failed badly.

CELEBRITY SKIVVIES “If I had portrayed Hitler in his underpants,” explained Belgian artist Jan Bucquoy at the opening of his museum in July in Brussels, “there would not have been a war.” Bucquoy has displayed, in glass cases, the drawers of prominent Belgians, but also exhibits “Warhol-type” drawings of underwearclad celebrities as he imagines them (like Margaret Thatcher). As Bucquoy told Reuters: “If you are scared of someone, just imagine them in their underpants. The hierarchy will fall.” Whose knickers does the artist most covet? France’s First Lady Carla Bruni’s would be nice, he said, but even better, the pope’s.

PANTS ENCOUNTER After haggling for a while at its June 16 meeting, the county board in Lincoln, Neb., finally voted, 2-1, to reimburse Shum Darwin for his pants, which went missing at the jail after Darwin was arrested. The city’s liability was clear; the debate was about whether the pants were worth $12 or $10.

LOST IN TRANSLATION An investigation by the U.K. TV channel More4 revealed in June that local U.K. councils spend the equivalent of $80 million a year translating their docu-

ments into dozens of languages in the cause of “fairness,” even obscure languages that few residents speak, and even given evidence that, in dozens of cases, no one has ever tried to access the documents. Translations were found in Albanian, Bengali, Kurdish, Somali, Urdu, Gujarati, Punjabi, Sierra Leonean Creole, Karen (eastern Burma) and Ga (Ghana), among others.

ANYTHING’S POSSIBLE David Shayler, 43, used to be a British MI5 intelligence officer, but apparently went downhill after a controversy with superiors and today lives as Delores Kent, in full female dress, and believes “in [his] heart” that he is the Messiah who will save mankind from its upcoming 2012 doomsday by turning billions of people on to the virtues of hemp, which is “perfectly balanced…full of omega-3, -6, and -9 to help muscles grow and repair.” Shayler/Kent also believes that Americans staged 9/11 and that Jesus Christ was, like him, a transvestite.

INCOMPETENT COPS Officers in Forrest City, Ark., arrested Lawrence Harden, Jr. in June for robbing a liquor store. They cuffed him, shackled him and head-stuffed him into their SUV, but he got out and ran away. Police dogs found Harden an hour later, and he was re-cuffed, re-shackled and re-head-stuffed into a squad car. He got out again and ran away (but was caught again and finally jailed).

UN-DUNG HEROES News of the Weird’s favorite animal was called “heroic” by Argentine researchers in a July issue of the journal Paleontology. Had it not been for high-performance South American scarab dung beetles, they wrote, gargantuan prehistoric mammals would have choked vast areas of the continent knee-deep in manure. The researchers found that, by burying tennisball-sized “food supplies” for their young, the beetles also improved surface sanitation by leaving less dung available for “disease-carrying flies.” MTW For an expanded News of the Weird, go to

T A H W Ed. Note: This is the second in a series of pieces that will examine the visitor industry and the future of the island’s economy.


s I write this, I’m in Copenhagen, Denmark, checking out preparations for the December world conference on climate change. Houses and apartments are smaller here, cars are fewer, bikes are everywhere and wind power rules (and has since the ’70s when Danes decided to free themselves from reliance on Middle East oil). Corporations are powerful factors in Scandinavia, but they don’t reign supreme. We are all wondering where to go from here. Will Hawaii and Maui crawl out of this depression and go back to business as usual? Can more of the same save us? We staked everything on tourism (and the military) and where are we now? For the 37 years I’ve been in Hawaii, there has been regular talk about diversifying the economy so that we’re more “sustainable.” But rhetoric aside, we have continued to put our eggs in the tourism basket. And now, the eggs are cracking.

THE MEGA YEARS Years ago, our developers and leaders decided that Maui was special and that we would not be like Waikiki, which suffered from market fluctuations. No, we would build for the wealthy, who lived above the world of recessions, and so we would be less prone to economic shocks. The strategy worked—until it didn’t. Convinced there was no end to growth, we built ever-more extravagant temples to the wealthy, mega-resorts surrounded by mega-mansions for mega-rich visitors. Drunk on the high-octane Kool-Aid, one

resort tore down my favorite hotel to build super-luxury condos, which sit, all dressed and ready to party, waiting for Mr. and Mrs. Rich to arrive. Bigger, it turns out, hasn’t been better for Maui’s people. Offshore corporations have different masters to serve. Like those cargo cults who build runways to attract the planes they think are bringing presents from their ancestors, we are stuck with our mega resorts. Meantime, we have to pray that the visitors keep coming while we expand our range of attractions. Many years ago, Bill Mollison, the founder of permaculture, summed up the golf course/hotel model: “You’re a bit insane really,” he said, “to be building golf courses so that people can fly thousands of miles to drive around in white carts, hitting little white balls.” The latest figures on the decline of our singular industry show significant declines in visitor arrivals. The figures compare arrivals with those of a year ago, when business was already way off. Just as significant is the reduction in average visitor expenditures, down almost 20 percent. While these numbers are disconcerting, the impacts at street level are alarming— closing stores, empty restaurants, huge rental inventories, more people living with friends or out of their cars and everyone striving for reinvention.

MEMES Memes are like genes. They are cultural units of information that replicate from mind to mind, appearing within society as new trends or thoughts. They start with social pioneers and eventually spread to more and more people. The prosperity meme has dominated Western thought for the past century. We believed that we could plunder nature, build what we want,


spend whatever it took and prosperity would flourish. Wealth, generated by the wizards of the financial world (who produce nothing) would, in the GOP meme, just “trickle down” to the masses. In Hawaii, we could get by catering to visitors who come to enjoy our beautiful islands. Paul Valery, the French poet, once said that “God made everything out of nothing, but the nothingness is beginning to show through.” The achievement meme is wearing thin and the community/caring meme is emerging. This meme is what shows up in the Scandinavian countries, where service to others and advancement of the collective good are held in high esteem. Few people there worry about health insurance, losing their job, going hungry. With that comes a freedom from dogma, greed and contention. This meme is getting stronger in Hawaii and on Maui as our leaders reflect on the limits of growth, the extreme orientation to luxury development, the lack of basic survival necessities and the need for greater social responsibility for our families, farmers and Native Hawaiians. Another interesting—and insidious— thought virus was the belief that we could import everything. Even a few oil embargos in the ’70s didn’t shake our faith that we could ship out sugar and pineapples and import everything else. With the last sugar fields in Hawaii still waving in the breeze, HC&S stands as a reminder of that era. Yes, they’re losing millions, but the agricultural property tax base is low and sugar justifies A&B’s control of our water—for now. Along with the community/caring meme is the idea of sustainability. Not as it has been—a mere slogan to repeat in the dark—but as a necessary strategy for survival. It’s time to explore what this thought wave is bringing to our shores.

FOOD, FUEL, SHELTER Councilman Sol Kaho‘ohalahala says there is a Hawaiian expression that translates as: “To understand the future, look to the past.” Imagine: the ancestors of our host culture lived here for over 1,000 years with no ships or planes arriving, no Costco or WalMart. They didn’t practice “sustainability,” they lived as part of nature, growing food for today and planting for tomorrow. The food issue is paramount. Local people who have been living close to the land and fishing for food are fairly secure, while others are planting seeds and cultivating their gardens. We have been told that we could meet all of our food needs for Maui by growing food on a few thousand acres. This is often said with a “why bother?” attitude. Well, if it’s so easy, why not just do it? Yes, farming is hard work. Land is expensive. But what if there were a way to make it financially feasible? What if the County were to, say, approve a medical marijuana bill that would allow small farmers to grow a limited amount of cannabis, but only if they grew a serious food crop as well? The “small farm” part would keep corporations from taking over and making GMO monster weed. High taxes could raise revenue for the County. Small farms would thrive. Young people could work in an environment where they’d learn life skills while earning a living. Even if we could reduce our dependence on imported foods by 20 percent, that would go a long way toward replenishing our soil, increasing self-reliance, keeping our dollars at home and providing food for our families. Unfortunately, the oil meme dies hard. Maui Electric Co. and its owner, HECO,

make money-generating power from imported oil. HC&S burns coal. Meanwhile, we have a fabulous wind regime and near year-round sun. Chris Mentzel of South Maui has been

The state spends more than $6 billion importing energy; Maui’s share is about $700 million. As long as the utilities control the Public Utilities Commission and the legislature, we will only inch into the future. Working with forward-thinking allies, Menzel is involved in presenting a plan to the PUC that would require utilities to buy alternative power. Introduced in Germany about eight years ago, the FeedIn Tariff assures the utility a fixed rate of profit, reduces barriers to entry for private power entrepreneurs (who are eager to come to Hawaii) and guarantees consumers low, fixed rates for decades. This plan has allowed Germany to create almost 300,000 new green jobs in less than a decade. But where does the investment capital come from to build the wind, solar and biomass generating capacity? Mentzel believes that locally investing state of Hawaii employee pension funds (which have lost billions to the Wall Street scammers and gamblers) would provide high-yield, safe investments for our retired workers. He not only believes it; he’s done the math to show that it is a far better investment than the questionable markets those funds are now in. As for shelter: About seven years ago I built three guesthouses out of bamboo. It seemed like the right thing to do; bamboo is one of the most utilized building materials of all time. A local company, Bamboo Technologies, imported the manufactured homes from their factory in Vietnam. They went up in days. Now the company has built 150 such homes, more than 40 on Maui. They’re poised for growth, as their message has reached builders from around the world. They hope to work with local bamboo growers and developers to create homegrown housing projects, envisioning a green Habitat for Humanity where people get more of their building materials onisland and learn to build with this fastgrowing, inexpensive-but-strong material that (like hemp) is an excellent “carbon sink,� which could attract dollars from offset-seeking polluters.

beaten path, meet local people, tour on their own, visit farms, stay with local families. The study labeled these the “innerdirected tourists.� We have lots of such niche visitors: the sports folks who want to be close to the water; the health visitors who come for yoga, dance and exercise and want to be near the studios; the health-challenged who want fresh air, country walks, special care; the students of Huna and Hawaiian arts who want to study hula, Hawaiian music, who want to be close to the kumus. Foodies want to be near good restaurants, hikers near the woods and trails, bikers by the highways. One size does not fit all. Peahi Farms, an oceanfront project on the North Shore, took a different approach. Limited to 16 lots for their 240 acres, they made lot 16 have 160 acres of farmland so the project could generate its own power, grow its own food, even some building materials. Because of permitting delays, this project missed the market, but it did

set a standard for thinking sustainably. It is a model worth duplicating. Another developer with an Oregon track record, Zack Franks, proposes a health/retirement community outside of Makawao. Recognizing that as people age they need less space and more care, his project would accommodate seniors who want to stay fit, those who need some home care and, finally, those needing intensive care. This model has succeeded throughout the South and Southwest. Maui would be an attractive destination for elders seeking warmth and care. This type of project would create jobs for our many gifted healers and young people who want to stay close to home.

GOING BACK TO OUR PLOWS We have to recognize that corporations can’t “think local� and that if we are to survive, we have to think differently. We need to use imagination and creativity to engage our kupunas, our local farmers, our youth and our leaders—all of us—to make dramatic changes in how we operate. Developers want to build hundreds of new projects. Show me the water, the food supply, the buyers for these houses, the jobs where people will work. I imagine a green rating system where the Planning Commission gives preference to projects that score the highest. My dream project would have a farm in the middle or on the border; it would supply food to the families that live there, including nursery starts for backyard gardens. A permaculture master

plan would help preserve soil, minimize runoff, plant shade and fruit-bearing trees throughout. Micro-power would power the homes: small wind turbines, solar water and PV panels on the roof, with energy-efficient appliances required. Greenways would encourage gardening, walking and biking throughout the project. This is not far-fetched. I know some of our developers are thinking along these lines. Harry Kim, the former mayor of the Big Island, got it right when he said that he didn’t just want his island to be a great visitor destination, he wanted it be a great place to live. Let’s get back to our plows, let’s work to make Maui’s soil healthy again, let’s clean up our water and air, let’s focus on feeding ourselves, keeping our food, fuel and fiber dollars here at home, working for us. Then we won’t have to keep praying to our ancestors to send gifts—we will have produced our own. MTW

‘INNER-DIRECTED’ TOURISTS The Tavares Administration put an end to visitors staying in our homes, and sent a clear message: “You want to come to Maui, go to a hotel or a condo.� Almost every other destination in the world welcomes B&Bs as a part of the visitor mix, and many locals like the contact.

Cruz control Kihei taqueria proves big things come in small packages s it written somewhere that a restaurant has to be in plain view? In my experience some of the best eateries are hard to find—nestled between or tucked behind. Taqueria Cruz is one of those places. Its location, in the back corner of the Dolphin Plaza across from Kam 1, certainly qualifies for “hole in the wall” status.


Taqueria Cruz 2395 S. Kihei Road, #112, Kihei 875-2910 What it lacks in visibility it makes up for in the quality of its food—and prices. The most expensive item on the menu, a fish taco combo, is $8.95. As soon as you sit down you’re presented with nice, thick freshly made chips. I had to be restrained—or rather reminded—that there was more to come. The salsa was light, made with tomatoes that have never

seen the inside of a can and lightly flavored with one of my favorite condiments, cilantro. Their tortillas are also made fresh every morning (by Fresh Tortillas of Maui, located right next door). Are you noticing a trend? One of their secrets, according to owner Jorjes Velez, is focusing on fresh. He believes it’s what sets them apart from many other Mexican restaurants. Mexican food is often heavy on beans, light on more subtle flavors. Not here. They serve the traditional offerings, but with a twist. For example, it might have been my imagination but their taco carnitas had a slight kalua flavor and their taco pollo (chicken taco) was served in a (you guessed it) freshly made shell and very delicately spiced. The veggie version, not content to hang with the traditional bean and cheese crowd, wraps itself around a pablano chili (pretty mild as far as peppers go but very flavorful). While I may stray at times, I always come back to the fish tacos. These guys kick it up a notch by offering them three ways— grilled, blackened or baja-style (rolled in

flour). The burritos can be summed up in one word— big—with beans, rice, cheese and lettuce and your choice of ground or shredded beef, chicken, pork, fish or poblano. Not to belabor the point, but I’d also use the word big to describe the nachos. The amount of fixins—ground beef, jalapenos, cheese, etc.— left me wondering whether the chips had been forgotten. Restaurants are about history as well as food. Velez’s family has been in the business since 1951.

Do you believe in magic? Illusionist peers into Maui Time’s future kepticism is magic’s worst enemy. Even the most gifted illusionist needs a supportive—or at least credulous—crowd. With that mind, it’s odd that Dr. Scandia—aka The Great Franali aka Frank Alfred—chose a newspaper as the target of his big, showcapping trick. Journalists, after all, are notoriously suspicious creatures, trained never to suspend disbelief. And yet there he was, standing in my office in slacks and an aloha shirt, looking more like a retired accountant on vacation than a professional magician. His pitch was simple: He would predict next week’s cover headline (the August 6 issue), write it on a piece of paper and place it in a locked container, which would stay in my possession until the day of the show, when it would be opened on stage. Dr. Scandia had done this before; he showed me clippings from other papers that had agreed to play along. I told him I’d think about it. The offer was intriguing, if a tad silly. The fact that the show—to be held at the


Iao Theater—was a benefit for the American Veteran’s Association tipped the scales. I called Dr. Scandia and told him I was in. A few days later he was back in my office, leaning against the wall (which is plastered with old Maui Time covers), eyes closed, conjuring next week’s news (or killing time). He then scribbled something on a piece of paper, stuffed it in a vial,

headed for the door. Suddenly, as though he’d forgotten something, he turned. “Thanks for doing this,” he said, with an almost apologetic wink. “It’s a gimmick.” The Iao Theater was probably threequarters full, a good turnout for a Thursday evening. The crowd was a mix of squealing keiki, giggling teenagers, middle-aged adults—and reporter Anu Yagi and me. The

The lights dimmed and Dr. Scandia emerged, his vacation attire replaced by a velvet jacket and gaudy gold chain. wrapped the vial in a paper bag, stuck the bag in a jar, sealed the jar with tape (which I signed and dated) and put it into a clear, padlocked plastic container. Before he left, he gave me two rules: I wasn’t to tamper with the container, and the headline couldn’t be about him (I imagined some wiseass editor running something along the lines of, “Dr. Scandia fails to predict headline”). He shook my hand and

show opened with Kolina, an enthusiastic magician from the Big Island with a certain campy charm whose best trick was “swallowing” about a half-dozen razor blades. Then the lights dimmed and Dr. Scandia emerged, his vacation attire replaced by a velvet jacket and gaudy gold chain. He performed a couple “mind reading” bits, one of which fizzled on the first attempt. The crowd was mildly supportive, but far from

wowed. That’s when he reached for the locked container, which I’d placed on stage prior to the show as instructed. After explaining the back story, Dr. Scandia selected four volunteers. Anu waved her arm through the first three selections, and finally got the call. Now I had eyes up close. The scene unfolded as expected. Each volunteer opened a different layer, until the vial was unwrapped and handed to Anu (not by Dr. Scandia, though he did touch it once), who read it aloud. The prediction— “Reviewing the Visitor Industry”—was only one word off, and Dr. Scandia also correctly divined that there would be a mention of bon dance festivities on page 21. As we exited the theater, I asked Anu if she’d caught the trick. “Yes,” she answered with a smile. Now the only question was, should I reveal it? I wrestled with that, but in the end decided to leave it a mystery. It’s been a while since I gave my skepticism a day off. MTW

‘Love and good things’ Ziggy Marley digs Maui—and Maui digs him back o say reggae has taken strong root in Hawaii is an epic understatement. The genre has permeated most facets of local living, and Mauians run the gamut from those who make it an essential part of their identity to those who utterly despise it.


Ziggy Marley Next gigs: Sunday, August 16, 11:30am at the Maui Prince Hotel, Makena (2498811) & 3pm at War Memorial Stadium, Kahului (270-7389) Web site: Wherever you might fall in that range, reggae is impossible to ignore. Birthed on an island, a rhythmic phoenix from the fire of oppression, reggae long ago gained international recognition. While young people from Japan to the suburban Midwest have created their own Bob-centric subcultures,

steak house

Hawaii residents vehemently claim reggae as their own. Perhaps it’s because the music speaks to the soul of the islander and preaches messages of spiritual sovereignty and awakening that make intrinsic sense to island-dwellers. Bob Marley’s firstborn son, Ziggy, returns to Maui this week. Hosting top artists from around the globe, Marley and friends will assuredly draw a sell-out crowd to the War Memorial Stadium. Though reggae’s popularity here regularly brings big names, a show from the genre’s motherland—especially one boasting the Marley name—is a rare treat. Ahead of his Hawaii tour, I spoke with Ziggy direct from his Tuff Gong headquarters and asked if he’d have the chance for any downtime while on Maui. “Well, I would call it up time,” he replied. “I spend a lot of time [on Maui]. Even when I’m not coming there to play music, I like to just relax out there…The people have a lot of good vibes and loving spirit—we dig that.” In addition to the evening concert, Ziggy will play a special benefit show titled “Family Time Party”; proceeds benefit the

Pacific Whale Foundation’s “No Child Left Indoors” program. At that performance, Ziggy will play tracks off of his latest release, Family Time. I asked if he had any advice for budding artists who might seek to emulate him. “Don’t look to do what I do—look to do what you do,” he responded in his soulful, rolling Jamaican lilt. “I do it, first thing, because it is something that is helpful. But most importantly it is something I believe I’ve been given to do. It is not a thing that I choose. It is not a thing I got up one day and say, I’m gonna write certain songs and it’s going to mean this and mean that, and there’s a strategy. It’s just something that fall upon me, and I accept it and I move with it.” Family Time boasts an array of collaborations, from Paul Simon to local girl Paula Fuga. “All the collaborations we did was special,” says Ziggy. “It is a great honor and privilege for me. I have much respect for all the artists on the album.” Asked what’s inspiring him now, Marley replies, “The Earth. Plants.” As proof of this, his Hawaii shows are going green—all

food and beverage accoutrements will be made of bio-compostable material. So what can nighttime audiences expect from the Sunday performance, in addition to the eco-friendly wares and accompanying acts like Joseph Israel (go to for MTW’s interview with Joseph) and Rovleta Fraser? Says Ziggy: “Good vibes, you know. Love and good things. Positive things.” Fair enough. MTW

Art imitates life Apatow comedy and Julia Child biopic meld fiction with reality Julie & Julia

woman she’s portraying, is larger than life. Streep steps into characters as easily as you and I put on a sweater, but this is among her most impressive achievements. Adams is wonderful as a struggling writer whose dedication, even in the face of failure, is admirable. After helming the great Sleepless in Seattle, Ephron has spent 16 years mostly directing duds. This film is not only a return to form, but a personal best. On top of adapting a screenplay from two very different books (no easy feat), she’s once again proven to be a smart comedy writer whose affection for the characters and the material is contagious.


Rated PG-13/123 min. With her exceptionally tall frame and a voice that always seemed to be on the verge of screaming, famed chef Julia Child made quite an impression. Nora Ephron’s film is a mash-up adaptation of Child’s book, My Life in France, about her early days in Paris, and of Julie Powell’s blog, which was later published as Julie & Julia: My Year of Cooking Dangerously, in which Powell (played in the film by Amy Adams) spent the year 2002 recreating every one of Child’s delectable but often challenging recipes. The film gives us two true stories at once. But rather than losing, the screenplay keeps the stories straight and makes you care equally about both of the central characters. Meryl Streep has been imaginatively cast as Child and I bought every minute of it; her performance, like the

Funny People


Oscar nom...for the chicken.

Rated R/146 min. Director Judd Apatow follows comedic gems The 40-Year Old Virgin and Knocked Up with another laughout-loud film that’s also more mature, risk-taking and emotionally satisfying than its predecessors. Adam Sandler

plays a comic actor who deals with a mid-life crisis by going back to stand-up, where he meets a young, insecure comedian (Seth Rogen) whom he takes under his wing to mentor, but secretly needs as a friend. Sandler is loosely playing himself, though with a darker edge and a selfloathing that will startle his frat-boy fanbase. The rest of the cast is equally excellent. Rogen underplays beautifully as a kind of lost puppy. Apatow’s wife, Leslie Mann, once again displays a knack for getting laughs even as she nails a hard-to-define role. Supporting players Jonah Hill and Jason Schwartzman are as good as expected, while Eric Bana gives a surprisingly inspired comic performance as an Aussie businessman who doesn’t realize what a bully he is. The film does leave a bitter aftertaste, and the shifts in tone make the second act uneven. But this is still hilarious and captivating stuff that’s smarter and deeper than you expect. MTW

[KB] JULIE & JULIA - PG13 - Comedy - Writer/director Nora Ephron intertwines the lives of famed TV chef Julia Child (Meryl Streep) and at-wits-end New York professional Julie Powell (Amy Adams), in a twoscoop adaptation of their respective best-selling memoirs. Things get tastily tricky when Powell, on the eve of her 30th birthday, embarks on a mission to tackle all 524 recipes in Child’s ‘Mastering the Art of French Cooking’. 123 min. THE PROPOSAL - PG13 - Romance - This is one of those “romantic comedies” that periodically gets pushed out. Sandra Bullock is a domineering executive who happens to be Canadian. She marries her assistant in order to stay in the U.S. Laughs presumably ensue (for some). 107 min. [KB] TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN - PG13 - Art, Foreign - If there are two things I can’t get enough of, they are sequels and giant robots. In this case, the revisited giant robot race once again battles other giant robots that happen to be evil. 150 min. [KB] THE UGLY TRUTH - R - Comedy - Basically, an uptight talk show producer (Katherine Heigl) is routinely put off by the antics of one of the show’s strapping correspondents (Gerard Butler).

THIS WEEK’S PICKS Art & eats meet West

Gonna Costa

Friday (Aug. 14), 7–10pm, Front St., Lahaina

Friday (Aug. 14), 10pm, Hard Rock Cafe, Lahaina

A revitalized Art Night, brought to you by the the Lahaina Town Action Committee, will transform the entirety of Front Street from 505 to the Image Gallery near the Hard Rock Cafe. Free and open to all, the evening will feature, for the first time, 100 percent gallery participation—with all 18 galleries showcasing featured artists-in-action producing paintings on the spot—as well as upwards of 15 live musicians strolling throughout (everything from classical cello to dance groove DJs, all solicitation-free in support of the event). Attendees can additionally indulge in tantalizing tastebud ticklers, all complementary, from some of the fine eateries around Lahaina Town: Santa Fe Cantina, Kimo’s, Lahaina Coolers, The Melting Pot, Ruth’s Chris, Lahaina Fish Co., Aina Gormet Market, Longhi’s, Hard Rock, Kobe, Betty’s Beach Cafe and Mai Tai Lounge. Tourists are usually the ones who get to throng the sidewalks of Lahaina’s historic hot spot, but this night—of all nights—should be a time when us locals make the journey over the Pali and take part. Free.

Last year, Matt Costa played for a sold-out Maui audience, and promoters are expecting another jammed turnout this Friday night (so learn a lesson from gigs past, get your tix in advance and avoid Maui-stylin’ it by trying to get in day-of). The aforementioned Art Night coincides with the Hard Rock hosting this hip rocker; this being Costa’s only Maui show, sandwiched between five other concerts statewide, both scenes are likely to see some cross-action event spillover. On Oahu, he’s opening for No Doubt (irrelevant for our hypa-local purposes, but interesting to those of you who, like me, saw No Doubt at the MACC way back when). As his longtime manager Chris Fenn told MTW, this reunion-of-sorts is “extra special…They have a deeper relationship. Tom Dumont, the drummer for No Doubt, and Matt are good friends; [Tom] produced Matt’s albums.” In Friday’s solo acoustic performance, audiences can expect to see some new tracks off his latest Brushfire Records release, Unfamiliar Faces. Wear your “Save Honolua” T-shirt to the show, and the Save Honolua Coalition will enter you into a special drawing to win two airline tickets on go! airlines and a $100 gift certificate to Hard Rock. $25.

Brazil 66

Kiddie Ziggy

Saturday (Aug. 15), 10pm, Casanova, Makawao

Sunday (Aug. 16), 11:30am-12:30pm, Maui Prince Hotel, Wailea

Some promoters—lets say, a certain shall-remain-nameless, early-August Big Show listing—might, with strong presale yields, up the at-door ticket price the night of the event and have to split the venue early to “lessen the chance of getting jumped,” scooting off-island with a pile of dough (gotta love the text message gossip). Other promoters might take the wad and run to Rio. Fortunately in this case, the bucks benefiting this “Brazilian Dream Party” will help the non-profit Jungle to Jungle purchase Amazonian trek-able techie gear, various waterproofing apparatuses and malaria medication. What for? Well, the rather righteous cause of exploring the Amazon River from end to end and transmitting their findings through newfangled technologies to the students of Kalama Intermediate School. If that’s not impressive, the fundraising means are. Saturday’s Carnaval-themed celebration will feature feather-festooned, nearly-naked ladies, the athletic acrobatics of Rio Maui, the West Side’s capoeira group, a bunch of DJs boasting funky favela styling, themed body painting by the talented Rachel DeBoer and even Brazilian waxing. Ouch. That might hurt, but the price—benefit or no—won’t. $12/$10 with costume.

Packing a lineup of community benefit events into the days prior to his Hawaii shows, Ziggy Marley proves his message of love and positive vibes is more than mere lip-service. In an interview with Ziggy last week, he told me his favorite thing to do while here in the islands is simply “nothing,” but his schedule tells a different tale. Saturday, in Honolulu, he’ll host a free children’s concert at the Hawaii Children’s Discovery Center, where he will be honored by students, and later will donate a Tuff Gong jacket to the Hard Rock Cafe memorabilia collection, as well as sign two guitars for a silent auction to benefit breast cancer research. Midday Sunday, on Maui, our local keiki score with a special concert geared for kids age 312 (and their caregivers). The show will feature tracks off his 2009 release, Family Time. Gamekids will also perform and the Pacific Whale Foundation will host informative activity booths. Space is limited, so it’d be smart to purchase tickets in advance. Proceeds benefit the PWF’s “No Child Left Indoors” program, which helps Maui kids attend fun, ecoeducational field trips, regardless of their ability to pay. For tickets call 2498811 or purchase online at 11:30am-12:30pm. $8 adults/$5 keiki/Kids under 2 free.

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22)

Ask a Taurus to kick it into high gear and you’ll notice a slight increase in speed. Leos, however, have the ability, shared by all three fire signs, to really turn up the volume and get shit done. You may not be able to achieve the supernova hotness of an Aries, or sustain the steady longterm burn of a Sagittarian, but you can, nevertheless do more and shine more brightly than your average person for decently long stretches of time. This is a useful skill to have—and one you should practice slightly more often than you have lately. You’ve got shit to get done. It’s high gear time.

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22)

Living involves the death of other beings. I’m not just talking about cows slaughtered for your consumption or mosquitoes slapped against your arm. Even Jains, who wear cloth over their mouths and perpetually sweep the path ahead of them with soft brooms to avoid insect deaths, are the cause of millions of deaths a day, even if it’s just the countless bacteria, viruses, and assorted other minute creatures living (and dying) aboard their bodies. There’s no need to get morbid here, but getting more in tune with the natural cycle of life (and death) is a key part of your week, and your life, moving forward.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22)

“Schadenfreude” means joy at others’ misfortune. It’s a word we borrowed from German because we don’t have one to fit that particular concept. Of course, it’s hard not laugh when someone takes a comical spill or a pie in the face. But taking true pleasure in the misery of others isn’t kind (and appears to be the particular specialty of the most malicious teenage girls). How much of a mean girl have you been lately? It’s okay to have a harmless chuckle when something mildly bad and very funny happens, but make sure compassion reigns supreme when shit really hits the fan. Because of how you’re wired, it’s more of a challenge for Scorpios to live in the moment than it is for some other signs. Your emotions are so overwhelmingly powerful; because of the way they get tied to particular people and events, it’s incredibly easy for you to get sucked into vivid memories, or potent hopes for the future, rather than simply experiencing the present. Like all things of this nature, this phenomenon can be both strength and weakness; unfortunately this week it’s more likely to be the latter. Therefore, shake off those fits of nostalgia or fervent future hopes whenever they threaten to overwhelm you. The present moment is where it’s at.; don’t miss it.

You guys have more energy than pretty much any other sign (possible exceptions are Virgos and Capricorns). You rarely slow down, get sick, or burn out—which is why almost no one can even keep up with you. You Archers either need to find ways to decelerate sometimes, or else get used to relatively lonely existences, since no one will be able to keep pace for very long. This week is a great one to figure out some spaces for those of us who prefer a slower tempo to spend enough quality time with you to develop true intimacy. Alternatively, you could use this week to figure out more ways to enjoy your lonely independence; it’s up to you.


Your blissful summertime hammock-nap is rudely interrupted by a snapping rope and a harsh impact with the ground. That kind of painfully unpleasant surprise could leave you unnerved and tightly-wound for ages. I understand your wariness; being hurt when at your most relaxed and vulnerable truly sucks. However, it’s important to understand there was nothing malicious in it; it just happened. In this case, you need to get over it, fast, because something much better than a sweetly uninterrupted nap is coming your way—but you’ll only be able to notice and appreciate it if you’re as open and unafraid as you were before that last shitty surprise.

You never know until you try, they say, and most of the time they’re right. Too many people shut themselves down and give up before they start. Self-sabotage keeps so many people from their dreams. But, here’s the thing: sometimes you do know before you try. There are certain things you’re going to suck at no matter what, completely unrelated to the presence or absence of self-belief. Separate out emotion, statistics, or even supposed “common sense.” If what’s left is a barren certainty that something is doomed to failure, give up on it now, so you can concentrate on other dreams, however unlikely they may be, that at least have a chance to succeed.


You’re so used to being the biggest mystery in people’s lives that when someone represents an even greater secret or conundrum, it freaks you out. Rather than madly attempting to get inside the inside joke, try to enjoy the game as a spectator for once. This is a good exercise for you, and a totally different role for you to play: the “known quantity.” Even though it might chafe a bit at first, I suspect you may end up enjoying it so much (it’s very nice to feel accepted and understood) that you’ll resist going back to being the mysterious, unknowable one if and when the opportunity presents itself.


Many men and women lock their perceptions to a certain ideal of beauty and have difficulty seeing beyond it. Although of course youth is beautiful, it’s helpful if you learn to appreciate other forms of beauty as you get older, some of which involve wrinkles, silver hair, and the wisdom born of experience. Sure, you might be rich, famous, or genetically-gifted enough to keep banging 20-year-olds into your golden years, but I still say moving on and allowing your concept and perception of beauty to evolve as you do is the way to a richer, happier life.


What looks good on paper doesn’t always play out the way you imagined it (anyone who’s answered a personal ad knows this). Theory and reality are totally different things, and just because you think you’ll like someone or something doesn’t mean you will when they’re right in front of you. In fact, that’s the only way to know for sure. This week, get face-to-face with the reality of something that’s so far been only conceptual. It’s time you knew whether it was worth investing more time in, or if you’d be better off letting it go and moving on.

Becoming an overnight sensation is not the path for you, at least not this week (or anytime soon). Sure, some people get “lucky” (it’s not usually as wonderful as it looks from the outside), and catapult to tremendous success very quickly, but most people who’ve done well built up their success slowly, over time. This, of course, requires persistence and patience—not two of your most prominent qualities. They can be developed, however, and this is a great week to work on that—and on building, one small piece at a time, the foundation for your future success.


You Crabs have a way of telling yourselves stories that make you out to be victims. That’s simply not helpful. Even if it’s “true” (in that there’s no absolute truth when it comes to the way people see things), it’s not doing you any favors to insist on looking at things that way. In fact, it’s likely to create a paradigm where you set up situations that are likely to play out in similar ways, thereby reinforcing your personal myth. The absolute truth, insofar as there is one, is that there are multiple ways to look at these encounters, and in only a couple of them are you the wronged victim. The other angles are no less accurate— and they have the added benefit of leaving you with a bit more power, self-worth, and joy. That, alone, makes them worth embracing.
