[ Coconut Wireless: The week in review ] HYPER LOCAL The Federal Emergency Management Agency and state Department of Land and Natural Resources held a meeting in Kihei this week to answer questions about revised Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM), which gauge flood risks for different areas. According to a County press release, “Major changes to the FIRM include newly flood-mapped areas of Waikapu, as well as Kamaole and Kaluaihakoko Gulches in Kihei. Other areas affected are located throughout the island.” (You can view the maps—and if you’re a homeowner it’d be a good idea—at It’s interesting that this news arrives in the midst of a national debate about health care. With flood insurance, the most at-risk homes are required to have coverage. With health care, it’s exactly the opposite: the more at-risk you are, the harder it is to get a policy. Gee— almost seems like the system’s rigged in favor of the insurance companies… I’ve had several people contact me about the beatings that occurred this past weekend in Makawao, in conjunction with an event we promoted in the August 13 Picks of the Week. Though details remain murky, a Maui News account confirmed that one man was hospitalized with “major facial injuries,” including a “shattered orbital.” Witnesses say some of the young men responsible were wearing mouth guards, suggesting this was no spur-of-the-moment attack. Police are treating it as a felony assault; at press time no arrests had been announced. Excessive violence is always deplorable, but in this case the fact that it happened outside a fundraiser for a youth program adds a layer of tragic

irony… There are a lot of reasons to blast the Cubs fan who dumped a beer on Maui boy Shane Victorino during a game at Wrigley Field in Chicago. Most of the more obvious ones have been discussed ad nauseum. Here’s one that’s flown under the radar: When security shows up to nab the culprit, the guy who actually did it (some suburbanite named Johnny Macchione who later confessed, apologized and turned himself in, presumably after his mommy threatened to take away his allowance) can be seen pointing to another fan, who gets kicked out while Macchione slips away. Let this be a lesson kids: if you must be an idiot, at least don’t be a coward…

LOCAL As Hawaii marks 50 years of statehood, everyone from the Honolulu Advertiser to the New York Times has weighed in, with the result a predictable mix of nostalgialaced platitudes tempered by parenthetical nods to Native Hawaiian sovereignty and the sagging visitor industry. So far no one, as far as I’ve seen, has nailed the issue in all its complexity and contradiction, if such a thing is even possible… It’s been nearly 48 years since leftist radical Dwight Eisenhower (who also, incidentally, signed the Admissions Act) warned against “the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex.” In the intervening decades those words have proven to be frighteningly prescient. Exhibit Z: an August 17 Pacific Business News item titled “Hawaii companies get military contracts.” The companies in question are Oahu construction outfit Nan Inc. and Tesoro Hawaii Corps., a subsidiary of the Texasbased oil giant. Nan Inc. will get $39.7 million to build housing for the Navy, while

Tesoro netted $186.7 million to provide jet fuel. Defense Department figures show that, since 2003, the two companies have received close to $1 billion in combined military contracts. That seems like a lot—and it is—but it’s all relative: in the same timeframe, Lockheed Martin has gobbled up more than $73 billion. (For a breakdown of those contracts and a look at the hauls of other companies, visit How about a little more from Ike: “[The] conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence—economic, political, even spiritual—is felt in every city, every statehouse, every office of the federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications.”… Repent ye therefore, and be converted: The state Department of Taxation says it collected more than $14 million in May and June during a month-long amnesty period wherein financial sinners were offered a chance to make good on unpaid or underreported taxes without penalty. Though the “get out of jail free” card has been rescinded, “officials still welcome taxpayers coming forward,” according to a Honolulu StarBulletin report. I bet they do…

NOT LOCAL The reaction to Whole Foods CEO John Mackey’s Wall Street Journal op/ed has been a tad overblown. Mackey, for those unfamiliar, offered a critique of Obama’s health care proposal (though there isn’t, as far as I can tell, really a proposal to critique—but whatever). Mackey’s argument is the classic free market mantra: keep insurance private, deregulate the industry and everyone will prosper, except for the people who don’t, but

they must not have worked hard enough. (I’m paraphrasing of course, but here’s something Mackey actually wrote: “While all of us can empathize with those who are sick, how can we say that all people have any more of an intrinsic right to health care than they have an intrinsic right to food, clothing, owning their own homes, a car or a personal computer?” That’s right: access to medicine = owning a Dell.) Anyway, my point is that, while you may disagree with Mackey, don’t act all shocked that the owner of a big corporation is fiscally conservative and opposed to government regulation. What I take issue with isn’t Mackey’s original piece, but a blog entry he posted on the Whole Foods site three days later. Though he didn’t back down from his main stance, Mackey did offer two “clarifications”: the piece was his opinion and not that of Whole Foods, which has “no official position on the issue”; and the editors at the WSJ screwed him. To the first point, though he doesn’t explicitly say, “I’m speaking on behalf of my company,” Mackey mentions Whole Foods (which is opening a store in Kahului next year, by the way) multiple times, and uses the company’s health plan as a model for what the country should be doing. Also, to reiterate: he posted the message on the Whole Foods blog. Forgive us for seeing the line as slightly blurred. To the second point: blaming an editor for twisting your words (yes, of course I’m biased) is weak to the weakest power. You don’t want someone else to alter your words? Use a tiny fraction of your vast fortune and publish the damn thing yourself. So, to recap: John Mackey, government-subsidized health care opponent— totally cool in a free society; John Mackey, backpedaling, buck-passing weasel—not cool, free society or no. MTW

The forest for the trees Volunteers help revive a dying wao akua “

eople said we were crazy,” recalled Caleb Kahele at a presentation earlier this month at the Tavares Community Center. Kahele was one of nine Americorps volunteers who pitched in to restore an endemic leeward forest on Haleakala, an effort that was spearheaded by Dr. Art Medeiros. Medieros said he began wondering almost a decade ago if there was any hope for the wao akua, the “god forests.” As the handpicked volunteers gave presentations about their eightweek internships, it became clear the answer is “yes.” As the restoration progressed, Medieros says he realized that, even as people were saving the forest, “the forest [was] saving the people.” Self-selected topics ranged from the dry forest in the “Before Time” (Hawaiian ancestors), “discovery” by Capt. Cook, the degradation of the forest and extinction of endemic species by way of invasive flora and fauna. “In the past, infrequent flora and fauna colonizers [plants and animals] arrived once every 30,000-50,000 years,” said Medeiros. “New invasive


species now arrive on average once every five days.” As a result of these invasions, Hawaii has lost many of its endemic species, with Kula having the dubious distinction of being the “epicenter of extinction,” according to Medeiros. Hawaii has about 95 per-

the endemic trees, making seed dispersal and natural growth impossible. Raleigh related how she and her cohorts pulled the grass, sprayed herbicide and let the area sit for one month before planting the seeds that had been stored in a seed

Hawaii has lost many of its endemic species, with Kula having the dubious distinction of being the “epicenter of extinction.” cent endemism, which means that our species are found nowhere else on earth. Medeiros praised the Erdman family and Ulupalakua Ranch for their community spirit in allowing and encouraging the restoration of native forest on what was formerly ranch land for cattle. Americorps intern Nikki Raleigh described how the dry land forest, which once spread from Kaupo to Makawao, was choked out by Kikuyu grass from Africa that was introduced as cattle forage. Kikuyu grass forms thick, impenetrable mats below

bank. Keiki seedlings raised in nurseries were also transplanted. “Once the seeds were planted, the forest knew what to do” said Raleigh. Raleigh also expressed what was to become a refrain for the evening: the spiritual connection she felt with the plants and the emerging forest. Kahele described the uses of native bird feathers for the adornment of ali‘i (royalty), and the ingenuity of the artisans who gathered the feathers from birds that were attracted to the flowers of specific native trees. Tragically for endemic birds, the

European boar, which interbred with the Polynesian wild pig after its introduction, ripped up the forest floor and made wattles that bred mosquitoes (also invasive). In turn, the mosquitos attacked the birds, which had no immunity to insect-borne diseases such as avian malaria. “Because our forest is dying, [featherworking] is a dying art,” said Kahele. Kalehua Muniz’s talk concluded with a succinct solution: “stricter import laws.” Hawaiian native plants—taro, sweet potato, breadfruit—can be sustainably grown and harvested, minimizing the need for imported food crops, he said. “I’m not Hawaiian, but Hawaii is my home, and I love my home,” said Logan Anderson. “We are soldiers fighting for this forest. The cycle of transformation is real and possible.” Anderson explained the meaning of the word auwahi–humble persons. “Once we help the trees, they thrive on their own.” MTW For information about volunteering, contact Andrea

[ Rob Report ]

Unfriendly skies Operation Greenharvest has Upcountry residents seeing red ou’re at home on a sunny Upcountry morning, enjoying the peace and quiet. Suddenly, a barely audible drone cuts through the birdsong, becoming increasingly louder until the “whomp, whomp, whomp” of a jet-black helicopter is directly overhead, perhaps 100 feet above your rooftop. You run out into your yard, half expecting to see Hawkeye, Klinger or some other members of the M*A*S*H unit preparing for incoming wounded. Without thinking, you impulsively give a middle finger salute, furious at the intrusion. The pilot looks directly at you, circles, then tilts and flies away over a neighboring property. This is but one version of stories related to me over the past week as federal- and state-funded marijuana eradication efforts have once again taken to the air. Comment threads lit up on Facebook last Friday, indicating that low-flying aircraft buzzed Haiku, Huelo, Olinda, Kula and Ulupalakua, leaving behind dozens of upset residents. “It’s very intense when they do their searches,” one homeowner told me. “They come in here early—at 8:30 in the morning—and are flying way too low. The FAA [Federal Aviation Administration] said they’re supposed to fly 500 feet or higher unless they have a warrant, but they were at 50 or 75 feet. It is so harassing!” Operation Green Harvest began undercover in the late 1970s on the Big Island, with federal, state and local narcotics officers backed by police and National Guard helicopters. By the ’80s it was a statewide operation, with the bulk of funding coming from the federal Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). Nancy Reagan’s “Just Say No” campaign was in full swing, and millions of federal drug enforcement dollars flowed to Hawaii. Some 30 years later, the funding and eradication efforts are still in place. In the current fiscal year 2010 budget for Maui County, the police department lists grants of $236,000 from the DEA and $82,170 from the statewide Marijuana Eradication Task Force Program. U.S Attorney Ed Kubo spoke after a 10-day Operation Green Harvest in 2008 netted nearly 30,000 plants and 36 pounds of processed pot. “Our goal is simple,” Kubo stated. “It is to resist substance abuse in this

state, and one way to reduce consumption is to reduce the supply of drugs.” any have questioned the overall efficacy of the eradication program, contending it has not stopped cannabis cultivation, but rather encouraged it by driving up the price. Meanwhile, some say that casual drug users have been attracted to cheaper—but more damaging and addictive—drugs such as crystal methamphetamine, known as batu or ice. Thus the bumper sticker, “Thanks to Green Harvest, our kids are on ice!” To many, the “Reefer Madness” mentality of some law enforcement personnel is clearly too heavy-handed and obtrusive. “They have no respect for civil rights,” one frustrated resident told me. “When I called the DEA in Honolulu, the guy laughed at me and said, ‘We don’t need a


or what they are doing. I am so fed up with this police-state behavior. I know we can do better.” “We need to get organized,” wrote another, “and do what the Big Island did; cut their budget by downgrading the issue to low priority in comparison to other county funding issues.” fter years of hearing complaints about helicopter missions intruding on people’s privacy and peace, in 2000 the Big Island County Council just said no to two-thirds of the annual federal eradication funds, totaling $265,000. But the following year, they reverted to accepting the full amount. Last year, by a split 4-4 vote, the Hawaii Island Council failed to pass a motion to accept Green Harvest funding, heeding a citizen led “Peaceful Sky” initiative that


Attention DEA agents: this is a cassava plant. warrant if we have probable cause.’ “They came on our property and yanked up our cassava plant, thinking it was pakalolo,” she continued. “My fifteen-year old daughter was home sick from school and asked me, ‘Why do we have to put up with that, but my school is under-funded?’” My call to the Federal Aviation Authority brought a helpful clarification of language pertaining to aircraft flight limits. The Code of Federal Regulations denotes 500 feet as the minimum safe altitude. “Helicopters may be operated at less,” [Title 14, Sec. 91.119] “if [conducted] without hazard to persons or property on the surface. In addition, each person operating a helicopter shall comply with any routes or altitudes specifically prescribed by helicopters by the Administrator.” “It just feels so 1984,” wrote an Olinda resident, “to hear those choppers right above your head and not know who it is


had tallied more than 5,000 signatures. That meant non-acceptance of $441,000 in state and federal funds, and a savings of $53,000 that would have been the county budget contribution. “When we institute programs,” said Councilmember Angel Pilago, “we, the county government, need to look at if they are detrimental to people’s rights and the health and safety of the community. It’s about home rule.” “People are really tired of seeing money misappropriated away from education and healthcare to fund a military-style war on a plant,” said Adam Lehmann of the Peaceful Sky effort. “It’s clearly going to give law enforcement more time and resources to focus on serious crimes. It’s going to provide lots of space in our prisons, it’s going to help courts run smoother and it’s going to essentially save this county’s taxpayers millions of dollars

every year, because they will avoid the costs of strict marijuana enforcement.” However, the budgetary decision didn’t entirely halt the use of helicopters for pot busts. In June, Hilo’s Hawaii Herald Tribune reported that vice operations are using DEA and Hawaii Army National Guard helicopters, with the federal government picking up the tab. Assistant Police Chief Marshall Kanehailua contended that surveillance for investigation to “bring someone to adjudication” is less intrusive than eradication (where plants are uprooted and destroyed) and generates less complaints. n addition to cutting eradication funds, the Peaceful Sky ordinance makes the personal use of marijuana by persons 21 and older the lowest police enforcement priority. Personal use is defined as “24 or fewer Cannabis plants at any stage of maturity,” or the dried equivalent. Possession of less than an ounce is treated as third-degree promotion of a detrimental drug, a petty misdemeanor punishable by up to 30 days in jail. Marijuana law enforcement and eradication has been further complicated by the growing number of people with permits to raise the plant for medical use. More than 4,200 individuals are certified statewide, after the legislature legalized medicinal use in 2000. Is it right to do low-flying aerial surveillance, just to find out nothing is amiss? A Peahi vegetable farmer told me he endured two days of low-flying helicopters scoping out his place. Two days later, vice officers showed up and demanded to see what was in his greenhouse. He asked to see their warrant, and they produced it. He then led them to his greenhouse of ripening tomatoes, and they sheepishly left. “Probable cause is nothing more than a convenient loophole that they abuse,” said the Upcountry mom. “There’s no way they could use the same police behavior if they were looking for something on private property on the ground.” With budgets stretched to the breaking point, all government spending must be carefully evaluated. It’s time to ask: Is the war against pakalolo being waged effectively—and is it worth fighting at all? MTW

[ News of the Weird ] AND YOU THOUGHT THEY WERE GOOFING OFF Japanese engineer Takuo Toda’s paper airplane was certified in May as the Guinness Book record-holder for the longest flight from a single folded sheet of paper: 27.9 seconds. And in Witcham, England, in July, Jim Collins won the World Peashooting Championship, using a “traditional” instrument blowing at a target 12 yards away, but noncompeting exchampion George Hollis once again drew the most attention with his homemade, gyroscopic-balancing, laser-guided peashooter, with which he won three previous championships.

BLAME THE VICTIM When motorist Timothy Pereira, 19, rammed Christine Speliotis’s car head-on in Salem, Mass., in March, there was no doubt in police officers’ minds what the cause was: Pereira was driving 85 mph in a 35 mph zone and had swerved into Speliotis’s lane. However, in July, Brandon Pereira, 17, an injured passenger in his cousin’s car, filed a lawsuit against Speliotis for negligence, claiming that if she had been quicker to get out of the way, the collision would not have occurred.

SORRY EXCUSES (1) A woman in Kansas City, Mo., told police in June that the reason she had stabbed her sleepwalking 24-year-old boyfriend in the face was that she feared he would hurt her if she didn’t wake him up. (She said the man had also just finished urinating in her closet.) (2) In Britain’s Chelmsford Crown Court in July, Sultan Al-Sayed, 40, was convicted of peeping under the next stall in a department-store changing room despite his claim that the only reason he placed his face on the floor was to relieve pain from a toothache.

TRUMPED When the tenant failed to pay $87,000 in rent in April and May on two townhouses and a retail property at Trump Plaza in New York City, the landlord did what Donald Trump would surely do: It began eviction proceedings. However, the tenant in this case is Donald Trump’s Trump Corp., which leases the space from the current landlord, the Trump Plaza Owners co-op. Said the co-op president: “If you don’t pay the rent when Donald Trump is your landlord, he comes down on you like a hammer. Well, lo and behold…”

NEWS & VIEWS [ Editor’s Inbox ] The first two parts of our series, “Revisiting the Visitor Industry,” sparked a lot of feedback. Here’s a sampling: While I enjoyed Doug Levin’s article in general, the section regarding technology on Maui was so far off base I was compelled to write. Maui has a very vibrant technology sector, which includes many hi-tech start-ups, large defense contractors, an Air Force research lab, one of the fastest supercomputers in the world and worldclass observatories on Haleakala summit. In Kihei much of this is centered at the Maui Research Tech Park as well as some companies based in Kahului and Wailuku at other business centers like the Pono Center Incubator. While hitech isn’t the bread and butter for Maui yet, it does represent a significant amount of revenue and employment base for the island. It represents clean technology and exciting opportunities for students to work in higher paying jobs that would allow them to afford a home and not be dependent on the tourist economy. Marc Lefebvre, posted at The industries Doug mentions as successors to hospitality are all in the same vein as hospitality: consumer spending. Maui should focus its efforts on a knowledge-based industry, such as research and development. You don’t need to have end products that will be purchased by consumers; what you want are ideas that can be purchased by conglomerates that will pay you royalties and licensing fees. Given the remote location of Hawaii, I am surprised the state government does not encourage more of this. S. Kihei, posted at Doug left out one of, if not the largest “industries” on Maui: Government. It is not an industry but is nevertheless a huge employer and deployer of funds. Our statewide politicians continue to squeeze the businesses of Hawaii to fund everything and make it so hard to



do business here, many fail or leave. The one party that has been in control for decades is bullying small business so hard, if tourism gets slower due to another dip there will be a huge washout of businesses. In case anyone forgets, businesses hire people and pay taxes to keep this whole thing going. The golden goose has his head in the path of the clever.





Bruised Business Owner, posted at Mark’s piece is one of the very few well-considered articles I’ve read in this publication on this subject. It’s frankly a damned shame that so many people have had to suffer the consequences of laissez-faire political stewardship that enslaves people in a system that teaches no work ethic or the value of a comprehensive education while allowing multinational corporations to purchase influence in government. Politicians and CEOs fear an educated public more than a 9mm pistol held at their temples: they know that anybody who reads and studies the world around them can care for themselves and add value to their communities without having to serve a clandestine master. Their entire existence depends on keeping people ignorant, fearful, hopeless and impoverished. I surely hope that the readership takes this article to the next level and demands action from their local leadership. And if they refuse to comply with the will of the community, then more assertive means may be necessary. All the very best of luck. Anakai McKerral, San Jose, California, posted at

record store ly n o i’s u a M f o fe A day in the li os by Sean Hower y Anu Yagi Phot B

he smell alone—a mix of biting plastic, second-hand must and a few other indiscernible scents—elicits nostalgia. A piecemeal patchwork of staple-gunned concert posters blankets the inside of the double doors that, when open, create a laser-printed embrace of upcoming entertainment. Nearly every curious passerby or patron pauses to peruse the new listings on one of the island’s few remaining traditional bulletin boards; a board with staples embedded and layered upon one another, forming a topographical map of some haphazard land. Enter and you realize the threshold is a portal to that place, a sensationally bizarre realm of beats and much more. Perched on the corner of Market and Main Street in Wailuku, Requests Music is the last legitimate record store on Maui. “This is the kind of place I remember going to when I was growing up,” says owner Vince Mendez.

AUGUST 20, 2009

Inside, the space is surprisingly small, especially to those accustomed to the sprawling monsters of modern CD sales. What it lacks in size it makes up for in inventory— wares are tightly packed from floor to ceiling, with yet another mountain in the basement (all vinyl, for record-digging audiophiles). Even if you know what you want, it’s wise to enlist a worker-guide—there’s no shame in asking for a little help navigating, though they’ll most likely ask you first. Requests is a haven, a sanctuary for music lovers and an eclectic Maui institution. Beyond media, it’s adorned with curios (like the original Toda Store clock, Spock giving the Vulcan salute, neon Gwar posters), lovingly called Requests relics, an ever-growing assortment of vintage oddities collecting on high shelves that encircle the store—many of them religious figurines. Classic faces and pursed hands, dust buried into every crevice, they number upwards of 30. But are they enough to save a store


that’s part of a dying breed? emories are all that most of us have left of the record stores of our youth. Nationwide, independent record stores have been gobbled up by giant retailers—more than 1,000 have closed their doors in the last six years alone. But that’s not the real threat. The corporate behemoths are collapsing, too. In New York, Virgin Megastore, the last remaining big record chain in the city, shut its doors in June, leaving only a handful of small indie outlets alive in a metropolis heralded as the epicenter of arts and culture. Record sales have plummeted an average of 45 percent since 2000, according to statistics from the Almighty Institute of Music Retail. The culprit, of course: the digital takeover. From iTunes to friendly file sharing to pure pirating, consumers now have an array of options that don’t involve purchasing a tangible album.


There is, however, some hope for those small, flailing entities poised to be washed away entirely by the digital wave. The mega store model has become antiquated and impractical. At the same time, the vinyl album is making a triumphant return, with sales jumping a walloping 89 percent last year. The increase in popularity has allowed a few new niche stores to open their doors while so many others are closing them—stores like L.A.’s Origami Vinyl and Little Radio. Indie establishments are also banding together, participating (as Requests does) in an international event known as Record Store Day, held the third Saturday in April. This past year boasted participation from 1,000 stores, up from a still-impressive 700 in 2008, the inaugural year. Designed as a day of celebration, the event invites artists and the community to come out and show support. Yet the picture is still bleak. Tumbling sales have forced indie stores that once relied

Keep ’em open, they’re the ears of the town.” Whether it be introducing a classic to a budding music aficionado or giving props to a worthy, perhaps underappreciated new release, the guys at Requests are willing and eager to share good ear candy. Case in point: One dreary spring day, I woke up on the wrong side of the bed and spent the day on the verge of tears. At my first chance, I booked it to Requests and was greeted with big smiles and a bigger hug from Springs. “I need something to lift my spirits!” I sputtered, embarrassed, but relieved to be in the only place that could offer an immediate remedy to my blues. “Lift your spirits? Hmm,” replied Springs, before sending me off with The Rapture’s Pieces of the People We Love. The album was something I’d never have tried on my own, but it was bright and bouncing with surprisingly humorous lyrics; in an instant I was whisked away from my doldrums. On another occasion, hankering for Roots en route to a meander around Iao Valley, I was hooked up with Easy Star All Star’s Dub Side of the Moon, which is, as the name suggests, a delightful dub interpretation of Pink Floyd’s seminal album. If you’re serious about special ordering something rare or out of stock, they’re great about tracking it down, and once they get to know your tastes, they’ll start to make excellent suggestions (I’ve got dibs on an incoming limited release of Ween’s At The Cat’s Cradle, a fine pitch thanks to manager Brendan Smith). With input from guys like Springs, or hip

and hilarious Smith, or J.P.—voted “most normal” by his colleagues—a DJ and fisherman I adore for his cool and forward-think ing localness, or the only-works-once-weekly, well-known DJ Boomshot, I’m always pleased with my purchases. Point being: you need it, they’ve got it— even if you didn’t realize you needed it. Perhaps that’s the essence of the record stores—quirky community gems that feed our passions, ignite new ones and bring us a little closer to each other through a shared experience, offering something that clicks on the Internet can never replace. Let’s hope the homegrown record hub won’t fade away and be that thing we didn’t know we needed so much. MTW

The sliders follow the same more-forless formula. Three bucks each or two for $5, they come on a small bun toasted on the grill right in front of you. Tender shredded chicken or beef is topped with grated cheese and cabbage and a healthy dose of barbeque sauce; even as I was walking away satisfied, Chuck called me back to add one more dollop of sauce. The sliders do what they’re supposed to—go down in a couple quick, easy, flavorful bites and leave you licking your fingers wishing for more. A small handful of fine establishments aside, Wailuku isn’t exactly a dining oasis. That means, for those of us who spend our working hours there, new options are always welcome.

Enduring tradition Hawaiian music master carries on a fragile legacy luwehi Guerrero is seated at his dining room table, aglow in afternoon light diffused through the kitchen windows. The air is filled with the sweet scent of pink plumerias; Guerrero’s producer and assistant, Pono Fried, is stringing lei from flowers picked fresh from the front yard. Though outside the Kahului sun is blazing, inside it’s thankfully pleasant. As I relax into the seat next to him, I find it hard to pinpoint whether the cool is a result of the air conditioning or Guerrero’s calm, easy style. Guerrero’s home is immaculate yet comfortable, decorated in a chic Hawaiiana style tastefully infused with Victorian-era elements. Bold jacquards, carved dark woods, a handmade crimson and white Hawaiian quilt folded precisely and draped over the back of a chair, masterful feather leis in koa wood shadow boxes, an antique phone—every piece of his décor is a clear reflection of his personal style. “It all started right here,” Guerrero says, motioning toward the garage where he first began practicing hula and playing music—the same garage he lovingly references in the first lines of a letter on the inside jacket of his latest release, Uluwehi Sings Na Mele Hula Aloha - Beloved Hula Songs—“I grew up right here in this house with my grandparents.” His grandparents—especially his grandmother—instilled in Guerrero the values of passionate dedication to one’s work and a deep love for culture and ‘ohana. “She always taught through action,” he says fondly of his


grandmother, who passed away four years ago. Guerrero—a multiple Na Hoku Hanohano Awards nominee and 2001 Male Vocalist of the Year—is more than just a champion of Hawaiian music; he’s a kumu hula beloved the world over who

Uluwehi Guerrero New album: Uluwehi Sings Na Mele Hula Aloha - Beloved Hula Songs Next gig: Saturday, August 22, 3pm at Barnes & Noble, Lahaina Web site:

tirelessly devotes himself to the study and perpetuation of Hawaiian arts. “We don’t have enough of this,” Uluwehi says, his storyteller hands gesturing gracefully between us, “the human connection.” Through his prolific teaching of hula and Hawaiian music, Guerrero hopes to foster more heartfelt face-to-face interactions—the kind that bring the whole ‘ohana together. Given that, it’s not surprising he prefers live performance over studio work. Eight years in the making, Guerrero’s latest album is a compilation of classic Hawaiian tunes, many of which have not been recorded in decades. The much-anticipated release event is scheduled for this Saturday, August 22, at Lahaina’s Barnes & Noble. The show will feature dancers from Guerrero’s Halau Hula Kauluokala and coincides with the Lahaina Gateway’s oneyear anniversary celebration. “People have been waiting for this a

long time,” says Guerrero. Calling the album’s 16 tracks a collection of “musical photographs,” the 20page liner notes—slid into the left pocket of the entirely recycled, plastic-free packaging—contain a photographic homage to each song. “Nani Kamakura,” for example, the only original song on the album, was inspired by the beauty of Japan’s iconic cherry blossoms and features the lyrics in Hawaiian and Japanese with photos from Guerrero’s travels to Japan. (True to his thematic attention to detail, at our meeting I’m served—among other ono sweets— white bean manju, Maui style, on little cherry blossom motif plates.) A frequent international traveler, Guerrero takes bi-annual trips to Japan to teach hula and perform (he’s had to cut back from trips that were once made as frequently as monthly). He recently returned from Chicago, where he headlined the Hula Association of the Midwest’s early August seminar “Hawaiian Hula Days.” With all that time on the road, his home schedule is remarkable. Every day of the week is crammed with multiple hula lessons and workshops with students that number in the hundreds. “I always start with my kupuna,” Guerrero says of his Monday classes of kane

dancers, “then, my makua,” speaking of his Tuesdays spent with wahine. Classes are held in the early evening to accommodate his students. “They have their schedules,” he says with a chuckle. “Gotta eat one certain time, go bed one certain time.” Wednesdays are dedicated to his core group of approximately 25 dancers and musicians—those passionate folks who’ve immersed themselves in the art and are often the traveling dancers that accompany Guerrero on his trips abroad. “We’re hula people,” he says of his longtime friends and students. “From when we wake up in the morning, we have each other.” Saturday’s classes enjoy the biggest turnout, with 165 devoted students. For those who can’t make the intensive commitment, Guerrero has developed a “Hula Light” class on Thursday nights. Considering the abundance of his professional bookings and all he does for the hula community, it’s no wonder his latest release has been so long in coming. It was worth the wait. Guerrero has given yet another gift to the Hawaiian music community, sung in his smooth, soothing style—a treasury of traditional sounds that, without the mana‘o of masters like Guerrero, might disappear.

Guts and glory Tarantino’s WWII epic is as bloody, wild and historically inaccurate as you’d expect hen Quentin Tarantino announced years ago that he wanted to make a World War II movie, I envisioned a film full of aerial combat, with U.S. fighter pilots firing their machine guns as their scarves rippled in the wind. Instead, Tarantino gives us a wartime fantasy about how a young Jewish woman (Melanie Laurent) survives a Nazi

assault on her family, led by a chipper officer (Christoph Waltz) who proudly calls himself “The Jew Hunter,” and rebuilds her life under a new identity while plotting her revenge. Tarantino thwarted my expectations, and proba-

bly yours as well, which is both an asset and a serious problem: the trailers and posters have most thinking that this is an ultra-violent action movie starring Brad Pitt, which is not the case at all. The emphasis is on suspense, not action, as long, dialogue-heavy scenes lead to stunning, often explosive punch lines. Many sequences would make great standalone tales, making the movie feel like a series of thrilling short films strung together. Those who enjoy Tarantino’s trademark dialogue and quirky characters will enjoy this most. This is pure cinematic insanity, Tarantino-style, a film madly in love with the movies, with references to Spaghetti Westerns, film noir, European cinema and classic film conventions sprinkled throughout. While it’s as historically accurate about WWII and Nazism as Raiders of the Lost Ark, it’s such an intoxicating experience, even history buffs won’t mind. Pitt’s performance as the leader of a group of Nazi hunters is enjoyable but overly cartoonish. He isn’t the lead, only one part of a large ensemble cast. Eli Roth (who

directed the Hostel films) is cast as the most enthusiastic of Pitt’s crew. Roth isn’t much of an actor, but he plays his role with gusto, while Mike Myers is impressive—and nearly unrecognizable—in a one-scene turn. Diane Krueger and Til Schweiger get the best roles they’ve ever had, though Waltz (who won the Best Actor award at the Cannes Film Festival) and Laurent make the deepest, most haunting impressions. I wish the film’s closing scene wasn’t so nasty and smug; it nearly kills the buzz of

what comes before it. Yet if Pulp Fiction was Tarantino’s tribute to lovers of milk shakes, Blaxploitation and American pop culture, his latest is for fans of Schnapps, New Wave cinema, assassination thrillers and Hitchcock’s wartime seat grabbers. If you’re looking for a smart, funny, giant cheeseburger of a fantasy, you’ll walk away elated. This is one of Tarantino’s nuttiest films—and one of his best. MTW

HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE - PG - Fantasy - This is the one where he dies. Just kidding. Now in his sixth year at Hogwart’s, Potter begins learning some dark secrets about one of his mentors. 133 min. [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 two-scoop adaptation of their respective bestselling 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. PONYO - G - Animation - Think anime-styled ‘Pinocchio’ meets ‘The Little Mermaid,’ by Japanese writer/director Hayao Miyazaki. A little goldfish who longs to be human sneaks away from her father (a pollution-battling wizard of the deep). When she finds the shore, she’s instantly smitten with a boy named Sosuke, and turns herself into the girl she’s always wanted to be—using a drop of the boy’s blood and some internal goldfish magic. No Disney animated flick would be complete without a huge Hollywood voiceover cast, ranging from Tina Fey to the Jonas Brothers. 101 min. THE TIME TRAVELER’S WIFE - PG13 Romance - Seemingly devised especially for geeky girls like me, the plot circles around a debonair Chicago librarian (Eric Bana), who is cursed/blessed with a gene causing spontaneous, involuntary time travel. Trouble aside, he remains hopelessly dedicated to and in love with his timeline-bound wife (Michelle Nolden), throughout all their longing battles through time and space. 108 min. 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). I’ll give you one guess as to the outcome. 101 min. [KB]

THIS WEEK’S PICKS Malls to the wall Thursday (Aug. 20), The Gap, Shops at Wailea, 7pm, Free

J-Boogie nights Friday (Aug. 21), Charley’s Restaurant & Saloon / Studio 142, Paia,

Friday (Aug. 21), Queen Kaahumanu Shopping Center, Kahului, 7pm, Free

9:30pm, $15

Celebrating 40 years doing what they do, The Gap is hosting “Born to Play”—the nation’s largest simultaneous concert—with 700 bands playing at 700 stores. Who’s The Gap’s pick to rock/represent Maui in all the festivities? The Throwdowns, naturally. Plus, their single “Kihei Town” will be listed on The Gap’s event Web site. Not bad. Opposite The Gap in the mall brand spectrum (sort of) is Hot Topic, which will host “Local Static.” The Throwdowns will take Center Stage at “Queen K,” as lead vocalist Erin Smith calls it, in yet another free gig— the last opportunity to see the band before their big, must-attend CD release shindig next week at Mulligan’s on the Blue. Once released, Hot Topic will carry the new CD statewide. Not bad either.


A 10-year veteran of the San Francisco Bay Area club scene, J-Boogie expands his world travels to Paia. Heralded as “SF’s Best Club DJ” by SF Weekly, he’s played alongside acts like Talib Kweli and Mix Master Mike with his signature “spicy musical gumbo” mix of Dub, Soul, Hip-Hop, Dancehall, Classics, Latin, Afrobeat and House. Attendees can expect to see tracks off his latest full-length Dubtronic Science release Soul Vibrations, featuring the likes of Zion I, Rich Medina and the Crown City Rockers. Get down SF style, thanks to Maui’s Ray Masters and his weekly dance parties at Studio 142 (going on strong for 3 months long). If you miss this North Shore gig, you’ll have to head to Canada to catch the rest of his August lineup. Hmm… Charley’s or Canada?

“Finally, a singer who doesn’t sound like Ella,” raves jazz expert Michael Naura of Die Zeit, Germany’s highly respected weekly (literally translated as, The Times). Cécile Verny, the African-French vocalist from Germany he spoke so highly of, along with stand up bassist Bernd Heitzler, percussionist Torsten Krill, and Andreas Erchinger on keys, comprise the Cécile Verny Quartet, and they’re bringing to Maui their unique blend of jazz, poetry and African grooves. Last year’s winner of the prestigious “Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik” (the German Record Critics’ Award) for their album The Bitter And The Sweet, their latest release is titled Amoreuse. Sandwiched between concerts all over Europe and a South African Tour at the close of this year, jazz enthusiasts won’t want to miss this Maui gig.

“Fight, f**ck, dance, destroy!” proclaims New York-based punk band, The A.K.A.s, set to tear up the historic Iao Theater, thanks to the guys at Requests (tidbit: at one point


the shop was called “The Store Formerly Known as Requests,” with an “R” shaped logo mimicking that of you-know-who). Hitting Hawaii after a long run with the Vans Warped Tour, The A.K.A.’s tour Tweets reveal they’re not all reckless abandon, and have a soft spot for recycling. What’s cooler than eco-conscious NY punk? Their newest member, bassist Michael Camino, is formerly of Hawaii’s own Hellcaminos! With them come Connecticut cuties White Rose, teen punks on a musical mission (and with a new album). Tickets can be had at Requests, Island Ink and Hot Rod Tattoo; call 244-9315 for more information.

Maui’s Laser Hair Removal Specialist


LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22)

We are offering 10% off all treatments till 8/31/09 Just mention this ad.

Extreme diets don’t generally work out. Making choices like beer vs. cake are usually more sustainable—then, you are limiting your pleasure (along with your calorie-intake) rather than eliminating it. It’s not healthy for Leos to practice any serious self-deprivation; it runs contrary to your nature. However, it’s perfectly okay—and in fact, a good exercise to strengthen your willpower, resolve, and character—to go without some things while you indulge in others. What small sacrifices could or should you make this week? Ideally they’ll be ones that’ll enhance your appreciation of the pleasures you’ve got left.

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) I counseled Leos not to go too hardcore on the self-deprivation front this week, as there’s simply no significant benefit for them. You Virgos, however, appear to thrive when you do without stuff. Sometimes it seems like the less you let yourself have, the more vibrant, vital, and joyful you are (perhaps because you have more space to enjoy the pleasures you’ve left yourself). Perhaps you haven’t noticed, but an awful lot of extraneous clutter has crept into your life. It might be time for a big, stress-relieving, glorious purge—and this is a great week to do just that.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) While arguments are stressful and aggravating, they’re actually a wonderful blessing. What the hell am I talking about? Having an argument with another person isn’t necessarily a demonstration of how incompatible you are—it’s actually a powerful indication of how much you both care. Ironically, the more you argue with someone, the more you probably matter to each other. It may seem strange to feel pleased when you have a disagreement with someone, but I’m pretty sure it ought to be included somewhere in the mix of feelings you experience at that time. Can you see your fights as a blessing in disguise, and as you wade through them take some small pleasure in that?

Less is More

SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) Strengths can double as weaknesses, remember? Your ability to cut through the bullshit and really look at people as they are is no exception—especially when it doesn’t work. Every so often, you fool yourself into thinking that, as usual, you’re the only one viewing the situation without thick distortive lenses. The problem is, your lenses (in this particular case) are the thickest and most misleading of all. Don’t beat yourself up too much about it, but do question what you see—and don’t act on it unless someone else can confirm that what you’re looking at is real. Chances are, it’s not.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) Just when you think you’ve evolved beyond your bases instincts, something or someone triggers that weird animal impulse we all have to protect what’s “ours.” Suddenly, your figurative hackles are up. There’s no reason to freak out—we feel what we feel, and there’s probably a good reason for it. Luckily, you still have a conscious mind and free will. I wouldn’t recommend using those to ignore these impulses—heeding your gut has gotten you this far But you can avoid (literally or figuratively) pissing in the corners and growling at intruders, in favor of a more sophisticated approach. Here’s a hint: if you can make people laugh while getting what you want, you’re on the right track.

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) Get in touch with your inner prankster this week. When was the last time silly, playful, or fun made the cut into a top ten list of words to describe you? I’m sure responsible, reliable and stubborn are up there, among other very adult adjectives. Can you dredge up some of the words that might have been used to describe you in sillier times (perhaps when you were four)? It’s a great week to try them on for size again. Chances are, they won’t fit all that well at first—but they’ve got a lot of stretch. The more you play around in them, the more comfortable they’ll begin to feel. Hopefully, once those particular pajamas fit right again, you’ll be much more reluctant to ever take them off again.

Underarm Bikini

I saw a child lose her favorite doll at the beach. I don’t think she could have cried more if it was her very own sister who’d been swept away by the waves. While most of us outgrow our childish attachments to stuffed animals or toys, it’s still quite common for adults to get perversely clingy with relationships, concepts, and dreams that are just as imaginary. That, my dear, is probably what’s happened here. You may be mourning something that was never particularly real in the first place. All that’s been pulled out to sea is an idea—an illusory one at that. It may hurt, but trust me: you’re better off without it.

Laser Facial

Everyone picks their nose; most people, however, make an effort to do it discreetly. What you’re up to is something similar; it’s part of your nature, but people might freak out if you rub it in their faces. There’s probably a part of you that wants to do it anyway, just to mess with them, and you should—just not right now. This isn’t a great week to rock that particular boat. You’ve got to pick your battles, remember. This one isn’t worth fighting right now, because you’ll just lose. Let it go and live to fight again another day.

Make Beauty Ageless


Don’t try to pretend that this sheet of unbreakable glass between you and your desires isn’t frustrating. To be so close, and see your dreams so clearly, and yet be unable to touch them is surely a perverse and powerful torture. However, beating on the glass won’t get you anywhere—it really is beyond your power (at least right now) to penetrate it. However, that doesn’t mean this particular dream is out of your reach (although to be realistic, it may be). The thing about this particular sheet of glass is that it’s only unbreakable from your side. If you can get your dream to come to you, the wall between you will shatter at the merest touch.

You’re an expert at bending or skirting the rules, but that’s not going to fly this week. If you try, you’re so likely to get caught (or trip up) that it’s pretty much a foregone conclusion. If I were you, I wouldn’t try that kind of thing right now. Don’t run the tremendous risk of getting called out for not doing things by the book. It’s not worth the hassle and humiliation, not to mention the severe handicap that would put on future rule-bending. I’m afraid it’s the straight and narrow path for you, my friend. It won’t get you where you’re going with nearly as much fun and flair as the route you’re used to taking, but it’ll get you there.


Chest Back

Mahalo Maui for Voting Us Best


Shave your head. It’s actually a very liberating experience. Not only will you feel lighter, more vulnerable, and open, but it’ll be a chance to lose a truckload of useless emotional baggage. While you’re at it, you can cast off some outdated ideas about yourself that you were still hanging onto. Surely all that lame stuff couldn’t possibly belong to that bold baldy in the mirror! Okay, going deliberately bald isn’t for everyone—but this is nevertheless a great week to at least do something very like it. Can you think of something you could lose that would help you to reinvent yourself in such a way? Please come up with something fast—and ditch it faster.

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Sure, if you want, you can make cleaning someone’s toilet and washing their socks a slightly degrading act, in your own head. But really, there’s no actual need to associate those feelings with those activities except a weird bit of societal programming. It’s just as easy to let them go and get stuff done without imbuing it with any deeper meaning. That’d be a good exercise for you. You tend to read too much into ordinary situations, and that, consequently causes more drama and hassle for you then it’s ever really worth. This week, when feelings like that crop up, do your best to let them go; you’ve got more important stuff to think about it.
