Gov. Lingle touched down on the Valley Isle this week to address the Maui Native Hawaiian Chamber of Commerce at the Grand Wailea. Her remarks were broad in scope if not vision, and contained a lot of defensive, revisionist rhetoric, typical of a lame duck with an eye on her legacy. Take, for example, this gem: “I think there are few episodes that have been as pathetic in the lack of political leadership as there were in that Superferry situation.” She then went on to point the finger at everyone but herself and to hint at a vague, omnipresent “they” who were responsible for the vessel’s demise, but I’m just going to let that first statement stand alone. And I’m going to agree with it completely… If you care where and how the County spends your money—and of course you should—you can weigh in at a series of 2010-11 budget meetings that Mayor Tavares called “vital” to the process in a recent release. Info can be found on the County Web site ( or by calling the County Budget Office at 270-7855. Or, if you’re too lazy and/or refuse to read anything other than Maui Time, here’s a list of upcoming engagements: September 15, 5:45pm at the Paia Community Center; September 16, 5:30pm at the Velma McWayne Santos Community Center in Wailuku; September 18, 5pm at the Lanai Community Center; September 22, 5:45pm at the Lahaina Civic Center; September 23, 5:45pm at the Mayor Hannibal Tavares Community Center in Pukalani; September 28, 5pm at Helene Hall in Hana; and September 30, 5pm at the Mitchell Pauole Community Center on Molokai… As the toxic fallout from Dowling’s Makena meltdown continues to spread, it looks like at least some of the Maui Prince’s 380 employees may avoid the unemployment line after Texas-based Benchmark Hospitality Management got the go-ahead to take over the foundering hotel from Prince Resorts Hawaii effective September 17. Officials involved in the transition have said kinda-sorta reassuring things, none of which have amounted to a promise to save anybody’s job. But some hope (if that’s the word) is better than none…

Hey, Lingle brought it up. two of the grocery giant’s other planned Hawaii stores. One store on Oahu whose proposed size was cut in half last year (from two levels and 67,000 square feet to one level and 35,000 square feet, according to a Honolulu Advertiser report) is now in limbo because of issues with construction outfit General Growth Properties. Another Oahu store had to put on the brakes last year because burial sites were uncovered; the company now says that location is slated for a fall 2011 opening. A third Oahu store did open in September 2008 and has sold actual food to actual people. Store manager Larry Hoover told the Advertiser that year one has been an “exciting experience.” Interesting choice of words… Sometimes it’s too easy: The National Hurricane Center christened its 12th storm of the season this week. Unlike her namesake, it appears Tropical Storm Linda won’t do any damage to Hawaii. Both, however, are blowing a lot of hot air. OK, I’ll stop…

NOT LOCAL At the risk of being branded a raving Marxist: Capitalism, for all its merits, is built on a shaky foundation—continuous growth and, by extension, continuous consumption. Because of this, we’ve been taught to equate acquiring stuff with happiness. It’s not a nefarious plot per se; it’s just the system sustaining itself. I bring this up because of the results of a recent Zogby International poll, which found that nearly a quarter of American adults say they’ve

given away more than 10 percent of their possessions “because [they] were no longer needed.” Add that to a mounting pile of evidence showing the economic crisis has led people to reevaluate their lifestyles and consuming habits. Of course, the cynical retort is that this newfound national asceticism is borne of necessity not choice, and that as soon as things pick back up (assuming they do) people will gleefully return to their gluttonous, twoSUVs-and-a-jet-ski ways. That’s a distinct possibility. But while the cliché about the Chinese character for “crisis” being a combination of “danger” and “opportunity” may be bull, the point is well taken… At the risk of being branded a raving Marxist, part two: Whether you marked Labor Day with labor or leisure, it’s worth remembering the holiday is about more than beer, beef and the beach (which, don’t get me wrong, is plenty reason to celebrate). I could try to say it myself, but I think I’ll hand this one off to Abraham Lincoln, a man Republicans, Democrats, Greens, Libertarians and Whigs (yes, they’re back: can agree said a couple quotable things in his day: “Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is superior to capital, and deserves much the higher consideration.” MTW

Score one for free speech Kauai filmmaker tests Hawaii’s media shield law—and wins sually, we equate free speech with unfettered communication—the right to say what we want, when we want. But sometimes, and just as importantly, it’s about the right to withhold information. Take the case of filmmaker Keoni Alvarez. For the past four years, Alvarez has been compiling footage for a documentary about Native Hawaiian burial rites. That’s a sensitive subject by itself, one rife with


body…to disclose, by subpoena or otherwise…the source…of any published or unpublished information…[and] any unpublished information.” Given that relatively unambiguous language, Kauai Circuit Court Judge Kathleen Watanabe rightly sided with Alvarez and granted his request for a protective order.

Also, if the person has observed the commission of a crime, they may protect their information only if “[t]he interest in maintaining the privilege…outweighs the public interest in disclosure,” or if “[t]he commission of the crime is the act of communicating or providing the information or documents at issue.” Act 210 does protect journalists from

fines or imprisonment for claiming its privileges, meaning they can assert their rights without fear. And that’s what truly free speech is—speech that’s free not only from undue meddling or censorship, but free from fear. MTW

Attorneys for the man building the home, Joseph Brescia, tried to subpoena Alvarez’s interviews and raw footage and to force him to answer questions under oath. That’s when the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Hawaii stepped in. Citing Act 210—better known as Hawaii’s “media shield law,” which was passed and signed last year—ACLU lawyers said Alvarez’s unpublished work and confidential sources were off-limits. Specifically, Act 210 protects journalists (defined in a broad sense) against being “required by a legislative, executive, or judicial officer or

“The media shield law can now be confidently asserted by journalists seeking to protect their work,” said ACLU attorney James Bickerton, who represented Alvarez, in a release. Alvarez said the ruling allows him to uphold his integrity, and to maintain credibility with wary subjects. “[Without the shield law], people wouldn’t trust me and I wouldn’t be able to work on really sensitive projects like this one,” he said. The right to guard sources is a sacred one in the media, but it’s also been tested many times. Journalists don’t always win, and even when they do, putting up a fight can mean serious consequences, including jail time. Act 210 does place restrictions on the protections it affords.

Food fight

The extra mile

We need to change our diets, for our bodies and the planet. But can we give up the Zippy’s fix? et’s face it: fast food rules. In Hawaii, where fish and poi were once the preferred diet of warriors and kings, good nutritional options have long since taken a backseat to the likes of spam musubi, loco moco and corporate franchise Happy Meals. Is it that people don’t know any better, don’t care or are just following their taste buds down the dark road to diabetes, obesity and cancer? National debates over health care reform have revealed the massive influence wielded by insurance companies, pharmaceuticals and HMOs. But those same debates have quickly digressed into political finger-pointing. There has been little discussion of the role our personal choices play in our nation’s deteriorating health. Why is it that 47 countries have longer life expectancies than the U.S.? Enter Food, Inc., a documentary that depicts how our nation’s food supply “is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment.” (Maui Film Festival is screening the movie at 5 and 7:30pm, Friday, September 11 at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center’s Castle theater in Kahului.) Co-produced by Fast Food Nation author Eric Schlosser, Food Inc. acts as a sort of prequel to Sicko, Michael Moore’s examination of the failings of our national health system. According to its press kit, Food Inc. “illustrates the dangers of a food system controlled by powerful corporations that don’t want you to see, to think about or to criticize how our food is made.”


f it’s true that “you are what you eat,” why do we keep consuming fried, fatty over-processed and genetically modified foods, which we wash down with sodas sweetened with high fructose corn syrup and aspartame? Is there some diabolical chemical additive that seduces our stomachs and hypnotizes our sense of reason, over-ruling our better judgment and bringing us back to the same feed trough again and again? Even Time magazine recently published a report titled “Getting real about the high price of cheap food.” It meanders through revelations of animal feed-


lot pollution and outbreaks of antibioticresistant bacteria, government-subsidized industrial farm operations supplanting small farmers, nutrition loss and fuel costs associated with long-distance shipping and the widespread impacts of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. The article ends with rationales for locally produced and organic foods, reminding us that “we have the chance to choose better food three times a day.” Those choices, however, may not always

hose in attendance—an Upcountry produce delivery service owner, a Maui representative of Edible Hawaiian Islands magazine, Warren Watanabe, wearing his new farm bureau Maui Locovore t-shirt—were members of the choir. Barely a ripple was made where an entire wave of consciousness is needed to shift people’s shopping and eating habits. On another battlefront, local farmers are imperiled by Gov. Lingle’s drastic proposed


“[Gov. Lingle’s] message is very clear,” a local farmer told me, “to hell with local agriculture.” be as easy as the corporate food alternatives. Driving home from town on Friday night, I stopped for my fossil fuel fix at a Paia gas station. My refillable water bottle on empty along with my tank, I perused the chiller cases. The choices were shockingly unhealthy—beer, soda, energy drinks, sugar-filled iced teas and water in plastic bottles. I left without buying anything, reminiscing about days gone by when one could buy an ice-cold Haiku Juice, with the colorful paper label wrapped around the metal can, at Nagata Store for 65 cents. On Saturday morning we did our own part for the Slow Food movement by shopping at the Eddie Tam farmer’s market. Two mornings later, after a quick Labor Day trip to the beach, I commenced chopping local produce—red cherry tomatoes, Kula onions, Waipoli hydroponic watercress, backyard arugula, carrots, Irene Mina’s sunflower sprouts and a perfect avocado. Tossing all the ingredients together with a little homemade dressing, we headed down to the healthy potluck on the lawn in front of Baldwin High School. There, while George Kahumoku Jr. strummed his slack key guitar, folks gathered as one of more than 300 communities nationwide supporting Slow Food USA’s Time For Lunch National Eat-in. The goal was to build awareness and send a clear message to Congress: children need real, nutritious food at school. Signatures were added to petitions calling for lawmakers to pass a new Child Nutrition Act. President Obama, meanwhile, delivered a pep talk at a Virginia high school, calling for kids to take responsibility for their education. The rational nexus would be that proper nutrition is conducive to mental acuity and physical stamina, and that healthy kids grow up to be successful adults. But despite the Hawaiian music and free food, the Slow Food event was exactly that—slow.

cuts to Department of Agriculture inspectors and Plant Quarantine Branch personnel. It’s a move that some have equated to “playing chicken” with labor unions who fought Lingle’s furloughs. Attendees at last week’s Senate hearing at Maui Waena School stood in unified opposition to Lingle’s cuts. State workers, invasive species specialists and farmers laid out the gloomy scenario of longer delays for shipments of agricultural products and increased risks of invasive diseases and pests that could wipe out local production. Meanwhile Lingle, speaking Friday at the Native Hawaiian Chamber of Commerce meeting in Wailea, stumped for new telescope projects on both Mauna Kea and Haleakala summits, touting up to 100 new construction jobs. One local farmer bemoaned the twisted logic of what Lingle refers to as the “new economy,” and her pushing for a handful of jobs while more than a thousand jobs could be lost from the closing of certified nurseries. “Her message is very clear,” he wrote to me, “to hell with local agriculture.” We are an island community that lined up outside the new Zippy’s in Kahului, that totes boxes of Krispy Kreme donuts on plane trips to Oahu, that by and large is more attached to a nostalgic “birthright” to local junk food than in switching to healthful alternatives. But Robert Kenner, director/producer of Food Inc., reminds us that things can change. “We did it before,” says Kenner, referring to the battle against tobacco companies. “We have to influence the government and readjust these scales back into the interests of the consumer.” In the end, our health and welfare— both as individuals and communities— depends upon embracing new ways to feed ourselves. MTW

“We did everything we could,” Brian Hubin, a manager with Lahaina Petroleum LLC, told the LC Adjudication Board at the September 3 hearing. A lot of people who come before the board say that, but in this case it actually seemed to be the truth. On March 8, a 19-year-old minor decoy entered the Paia Shell station, took a bottle of Heineken out of the cooler and walked up to the register. Without asking for ID, the cashier sold the decoy the alcohol. It’s a familiar story, one that’s been repeated countless times in the LC’s chambers. Often, the cashier is under-trained, or the store’s ID-checking procedure is incomplete or nonexistent. Not so here. Hubin said all employees are required to sign a zero tolerance policy every time they show up to work. On top of that, the company has contracted We Card, a third party program that conducts random ID checks. Lahaina Petroleum rewards employees who pass the test with a $25 bonus, and fires employees who don’t. The boardmembers were visibly impressed. They asked questions about We Card and lauded Hubin for going the extra mile. It was pretty surreal, actually. Then we all left the room, the board deliberated for a few minutes and issued a $2,000 fine, half of it suspended. While accepting his punishment, Hubin asked, politely, why workers aren’t subject to penalties (aside, of course, from usually getting fired), even when they’ve clearly failed to follow a rigorous policy. Director Frank Silva said that matter would have to be taken up in rulemaking, and some boardmembers, including Glenn Kunitake and Jason Medeiros, got defensive.

After being showered with praise moments before, Hubin was suddenly just another scofflaw daring to question the LC’s policies and authority. And thus order was restored.

[ News of the Weird ] ILLEGAL? DEPENDS… A woman offering child-care services in Melbourne, Fla., was dismayed to learn in August that a scam pulled on her by a diaper-wearing man in his 40s was not illegal. A man called her, on behalf of his disabled adult “brother,” who has a mental age of 5 and poor bladder control, and she began assisting him in her home during the day for $600 a week. She was later outraged to learn that the “brother” was really the caller and was actually normal (except for his perversion). However, as Brevard County Sheriff’s officials told Florida Today, since the woman consented to changing diapers and was fully paid for her services, they were unable to charge the man with a crime.

ONE SICK PUPPY Uganda’s independent national newspaper, The Daily Monitor, reported in May the arrest of hunter Nathan Awoloi, who was accused of forcing his wife to breastfeed his five puppies after their mothers, who were essential to his occupation, were killed. When Awoloi was released on bond, Caroline Odoi, Ugandan coordinator for the ActionAid International anti-poverty agency, led protests demanding his re-arrest because of evidence that one of Mrs. Awoloi’s own babies, who was nursing at the same time as the puppies, died of symptoms that resembled rabies. Police said the investigation was continuing.

PEST CONTROL Admitted gang member Alex Fowler, 26, of Jasper, Texas, was arrested in July and charged with an attempted home-invasion robbery that went bad. Tough-guy Fowler, who has the words “Crip for Life” tattooed on his

neck, was chased from the house by the 87-year-old female “victim” pointing a can of Raid insect repellant at him, threatening to spray.

UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES Hong Kong’s largest political party, the Democratic Alliance for Betterment and Progress, said it was only trying to alert vulnerable women in August when it publicized a list of shopping mall locations in which females ascending stairs or escalators are particularly susceptible to having “upskirt” photographs taken surreptitiously by cell phone cameras. A spokesman said that perverts probably already knew about the locations.

NO F#$%ING WAY! A study by psychology researchers at Britain’s Keele University in July showed that people who swear in response to a danger are better able to endure pain than those who use milder language.

SENSELESS ENTITLEMENT Theresa Winters, 36, who lives in Luton, England, with her unemployed boyfriend, Toney Housden, is pregnant (and chainsmoking) with her 14th child (his 12th) and remains totally dependent on public assistance, which officials estimate has totaled “millions” of pounds. Social workers recently removed the kids still living with her (five were born with disabilities), and Winters defiantly told The Sun in July that, if they also take away her 14th in November, she and Housden will just keep making more until she gets one to keep. Housden said he would “love” to go to work, but only for “the right reasons” (specifically, not, he said, to earn money for family counseling because that is the government’s responsibility). MTW

[ Editor’s Inbox ] I say bull to the editor’s assertion that insurance companies are at the root of our national health care problems [Coconut Wireless, September 13]. Are governmentlicensed corporations the guilty ones because they bribe legislators? Or are the legislators taking the bribes the guilty ones? Maybe it’s the electorate, the people, who continue to vote in bribable crooks. The voters have cared so little and paid so little attention to their government, and the structure of the civilization they live within, that there seems to be no other path for them but to become wards of the state. Ultimately this is because people don’t think for themselves. Most have no considered moral compass and don’t have a concept of how they should be treated, or haven’t cared how human beings ought to be treated. You get what you pay for and the American people have bought themselves ever encroaching, ever domineering multiple echelons of government. Good luck citizens!

I was glad to read Rob Parsons’s recent Rob Report about Operation Green Harvest [“Unfriendly skies,” August 20]. As a registered nurse, I find it appalling that funds have been unavailable for a medical helicopter to transport those in need of emergency care, yet exorbitant amounts are spent on choppers to play pakalolo detective. WTF?!

So the problem is, this wahine is going to hook up with your husband once or twice, and then move on [Eh Brah!, September 13]? So the problem isn’t that she is going to destroy your happy home, the problem is that your husband would dip his stick and you wouldn’t like it? In fact, the problem isn’t this moldy wahine. The problem is that your husband is so uncommitted to you that he would fall for that kind of thing.

IN THEIR OWN WORDS Four Hawaii poets bring modern mele oli to Maui ral tradition and the creative power of women are two enduring aspects of Hawaiian culture. Both will converge this Friday, September 11, at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center, when four female poets will share the stage and their mele oli (literally, chants unaccompanied by an instrument). “This is the first time on Maui that multiple generations of Hawaiian women poets will be brought together,” says Hokulani Holt, Cultural Programs Director at the MACC. The youngest of the group, 19-year-old award-winning slam poet Jamaica Osorio, recently read at the White House for President Obama (watch her chicken skin-inducing performance on YouTube). Joining Osorio will be Puanani Burgess, Mahealani PerezWendt and Tamara Wong-Morrison, each a luminary in her own right. We asked these four women to share a bit about their relationship with poetry and Hawaii, and to offer a favorite poem.


MAHEALANI PEREZ-WENDT WHAT DOES POETRY MEAN TO YOU? I think of poems as dream catchers. The momentary impulse that inspires a poem can sipate. A good poem captures the revelatory nuance of a moment before that moment

WHAT DOES HAWAII MEAN TO YOU? Hawaii is my homeland. I was born and raised here, and can trace my genealogy back many generations. My love of Hawaii is as someone whose people have lived, loved and died here over countless generations.

SELECTED POEM: “Hawaiian Mother” You should know The sea turtle’s spawn: The girl who rode Their winged forms, Their hard-horned shells Astride the plash and foam Of Kuhio Bay. She was consecrated In that place: Knew the winnowing fish, Shells, limu, the tides, And all her days Called oean home. When moon signaled She trekked with Her father, A holy man, The path of fiery embers. At the cauldron They prayed long, Gave thanks, Left offerings. I won’t pretend She was pure native And unspoiled — She knew the English standard And in her younger days Jazz, the Dorsey bothers, Other gentlemen. Later she developed an edge From hard times, But I believe She had what she needed To endure:


WHAT DOES POETRY MEAN TO YOU? Poetry is the ability to see inside and outside at the same time— undivided and whole. WHAT DOES HAWAII MEAN TO YOU? Hawaii means home to me: ancestral, physical, intellectual, political and artistic. SELECTED POEM: “Choosing My Name” When I was born my mother gave me three names: Christanbelle, Yoshie, and Puanani Christanbelle was my “English” name, My social security card name, My school name, The name I gave when teachers asked me for my “real” name A safe name Yoshie was my home name My everyday name, The name that reminded my father’s family That I was japanese, even though My nose, hips, and feet were wide, The name that made me acceptable to them Who called my Hawaiian mother kuroi (black), A saving name Puanani is my chosen name My piko name connecting me back to the `aina And the kai and the po`e kahiko My blessing, my burden, My amulet, my spear.

Jamaica Heolimeleikalani Osorio with President Barack Obama at the White House.

Dreams of blue water, Prismatic rain; The green turtles’ song, Their prayers for healing; The stars’ divinations, Prophetic moon; The great sacred mountain, Natal river of fire; Earth’s verdure, Its Eden; Spirit guardians of Night, The One Light.

TAMARA WONG-MORRISON WHAT DOES POETRY MEAN TO YOU? Poetry has the power to change our world. My Hawaiian ancestors say, “I ka olelo ola, i ka olelo make,” the word is life, the word is death—it can positively create or absolutely destroy. Ultimately, poetry is a healing art, even if the poetry is more of a rant and tinged with rage; it is catharsis and cleansing. I’ve been writing poetry since the 1970s when I was an environmental activist on Kauai (Ohana ‘o Maha‘ulepu). My early poems started as warnings, “Beware, a strange wave has washed upon the rocks…” and have become more incisive, sharp and sarcastic over the years, “I like sign up for the nation that going give whatever get to the Hawaiians with the most Hawaiian blood first…” My poems should educate by showing others another point-of-view. WHAT DOES HAWAII MEAN TO YOU? Hawaii is one of the sacred spots on this planet. Sacred places sustain us by simply being untouched by humans. Some of our mountains are still sacred, but most of our shorelines are wasted. I trekked in the Himalayas and saw Everest from a distance, then thought about all the mountain-climbing trash left there: the empty oxygen tanks, the dead bodies, the plastic water bottles! Humans do not need to go to sacred places; we should enjoy them from a distance. Hawaii is already overpopulated, we cannot sustain anymore humans; the Aloha is endangered. SELECTED POEM: “Maha‘ulepu” Sand dunes reach up Trying to touch Ha‘upu mountain. Far away society seems For the quiet of crashing waves wash away all memory. Here or there A beer bottle to remind you, But still beautiful. Wind, rain, sea And plantation have carved you Naked, helpless Desirable to developer. Washed on your pebbled shore A doomed vessel turned on its side, Nails rust in salt air, An example of things to come. Your cliffs overhang the reef Where blue uhu look ono swimming about. The pine trees cling to your sides And tangle their hair of branches with sand. Your caves, known to few; The Kipu kai ranch over the range, And an old Filipino man with his bamboo pole, Watch out compadre, The changing times as the tides Can drown you in its undertow

SELECTED POEM: “My last painful prayer” I woke up this morning wondering If by some masochistic twist I slit my wrist Would it taste like grandma’s kiss Would my veins spur of a broken bloodline Born from a tempered woman’s volcanic spit Would I A decedent of kamehameha and cook Find a way for papa and wakea to defray my pigment deficient skin Or would my wounds long for adam and eves olive leave bandages Because I woke up this morning feeling torn Broken and foreign Worn by my woven shoes and tangled roots I woke and realized my view of truth was skewed On the 18th of may I celebrate the day I was born 10 skin shades softer then my history I wanted SOO BADLY to be Hawaiian And so I allowed myself to be miserable Forcing my tongue to fit Able to born native language spit To Fill the cracks in my accent

My grandmother once told me To pay homage and respect to your past is honorable But at some point your neck will ache from you fear to look straight Jamaica If you ever want to live You have to forgive My grandmother tried to show me a path honorable enough to take She prayed her way back to life And I tried to bring myself into a church without feeling like I was linching my history or burning my ancestors but Every time I step into a church I feel like Im hanging and swaying what do you do when its painful to pray When enlightenment and dishonor smolder the same Like my grandmothers pride burning at the stake The day the missionaries came And somehow I found her praying to my demons the next day

i’m confused But I’ve always admired my WHAT DOES POETRY MEAN TO YOU? grandmother’s Poetry saved my life. It’s the reason I’m at Stanford, it’s how I’ve learned to completely accept myself and it’s ability to live Even shackled, given me more opportunities than I would have ever imagined in my wildest dreams. broken and restricted WHAT DOES HAWAII MEAN TO YOU? She still finds a Being from Hawaii has had a huge impact on the person I have become. I am very proud of my roots and I way to lift her try my best to keep them clean and strong while I am away, but it’s hard being away from my rock, my soil. hands in prayer Sometimes I feel like I cannot grow properly in a concrete jungle like California. And I know plenty people to forgive And I tried to think Oahu is a concrete jungle, but it’s even more the mindset of being on the Mainland [that’s] hard for follow her path me. I can’t imagine what kind of person I would be today if I was raised in California rather than Hawaii. But I know I rather be Hawaiian than Christian Trying to mold my voice to sound Rather write poems than the way my ancestors did scriptures Memorize songs instead of I spent my youth tracing roots prayes downright and backwards I rather have my histories by 18 I realized approval than the bibles I had forgotten what forwards looked like So today I’m relearning how to see but whenever i become sure Because the salt water I spent of this i remember years sifting through trying to my grandmother find the key to my history someWho found some sort of how blinded me inner balance that i dont understand but grandmas tears were supposed to can’t help but admire heal me And even though I might But they don’t pass as easily as have been taught her prayer you’d think to their god is betrayal And her kisses felt a lot less like I’ve grown to learn presences and more like Love is more rewarding than Emptiness pride And so No matter how I’ve never felt so broken after an detached my grandmothers embrace values are from my history that I wanted to actually retrace and attached to her church Her love and approval myself ALWAYS COME FIRST back to a pre touched state

marinated in the Cherry Wheat Ale they were later served with. Every bite drove me to sip the Cherry Wheat, and every sip begged for another bite of ribs. The dinner is over, but all the special Sam Adams beers are still available for $3.50 a bottle: the Summer Ale, a lemony wheat that’s refreshing enough for salads yet strong enough for pau hana; the Cherry Wheat, great with spicy foods; the Blackberry Whitbier, a sweeter brew; and the Black Lager, which surprised me the most—the deep black color gives the impression of a stout, but it’s light and smooth like the lager it is.

Going his own way Mick Fleetwood talks blues, balls and getting beamed up on Star Trek

h my God! You are well informed,” laughs Mick Fleetwood when I ask about his wooden balls. Really? I figured it was a standard topic. Fleetwood is, after all, seen displaying the precariously hung pair on the cover of the 10th best-selling album of all time: Fleetwood Mac’s 1977 release, Rumours. In the black-and-white photo, the legendary drummer assumes a Captain Morgan-like stance—toilet chain balls proudly dangling from his belt, a dewy Stevie Nicks draped over his leg. A few minutes into our conversation, I grasp Fleetwood’s style: effortless, humble, carefully informative and surprisingly unpretentious. He’s gracious with his rolling anecdotes and seems to enjoy telling them with humorous tonal inflections. Take, for example, the history of his wooden balls. “The original, original ones I do not have—but the ones that I have are very, very old. I won’t say they’re as old as me. But—it starts getting into X-rated commentary here—my balls are quite old.” Fleetwood confirms that the original pair were “lavatory chains.” Though we’re conversing over the phone, I imagine him pantomiming the vandalism as he narrates: “I came out—and I must admit I had a couple of glasses of English ale—and came out of the toilet with these, I ripped them off the—you know, I was very destructive—I ripped them off the toilet and had them hanging down between my legs.” As for what happened to those originals—the “juju” good luck charm he never performs (specifically) Fleetwood Mac shows without? “I lost them at a gig,” he says. “Eventually somewhere they got ripped off.” After that, he visited a carpenter to get a replacement set. “In truth, I started off as a blues player. The whole ethic of a lot of blues music is slightly suggestive, might I say. And suitably, I walked out on stage with these two lavatory chains with these wooden balls hanging down, and after that it just stuck. “Now that we’ve talked about my balls, let’s talk about the evening we’re going to be having.”

air enough. That “evening” would be two upcoming gigs, benefits for Hospice Maui. “It should be a lot of fun and really I’m drawing on players that are part of two bands that I have,” says Fleetwood. “The Mick Fleetwood Band— which is basically The Mick Fleetwood Blues Band. Rick Vito, my old partner from Fleetwood Mac, is gonna be there and Lenny Castellanos on bass and Mark Johnstone. It’s sort of a cross blend—Eric Gilliom and Gretchen Rhodes from the Island Rumours band [and] Barry Flanagan of HAPA, a great friend, incredible vocalist and an unbelievably talented guitar player. They’re people that I’ve met

love with being here.” Even with all his aloha for the Valley Isle, in the midst of a world tour with Fleetwood Mac, two Maui gigs might seem like more work for a man that needs none. “I’m basically someone that loves to play and perform” says Fleetwood. “So we should have some musical sparks happening—it’s definitely a rocking night, if nothing else.” Naturally, our chat is heavily influenced by his passion for blues. “Once a blues player, always a blues player,” he says simply. I prod the topic of the digital age of music—his take is that while “the downside is certainly on the business

And that’s the way I’ve always thought, from the time I stepped off the plane, probably about 1973. I just fell in

level, things have changed a lot,” creatively and in the industry. Ultimately, he feels it’s been a boost of sorts, and “a reminder that we are blessed as musicians [to] go out and do what we did in the first place. What we have done is go out and play and no one can take that away.” leetwood left school at the age of 15 to pursue a career in music, a move he credits to his “two wonderful parents” who supported both he and his sisters in their pursuit of arts.


Mick Fleetwood Upcoming Gigs: Fri., Sept. 11, 9pm at Stella Blues Cafe, Kihei, $25 advance/$30 door, 874-3779; Sun., Sept. 13, sunset at Royal Lahaina Resort, $35 advance /$40 door, 661-3611 One of his sisters provides a link to what I (and any other Trekkie worth the Starfleet emblem on her chest) really want to know about: his guest alien appearance on Star Trek: The Next Generation. “You want to know how I got that?” Fleetwood laughs. I salivate with anticipation, as if over the gooey vermicula his Antedean character devours in the episode in question, “Manhunt.” “[A]n agent phoned me up and said we’ve got this little part on The Next Generation,” he says. “And I forget the name of the chap, but the chap with the bald head, was a friend of my sister, the English actor…” he trails with a rare pause. “Patrick Stewart?!” I pipe with dorky glee. “Yeah,” says Fleetwood, “he was a great friend of my sister Susan. [They] went to acting school together. “So I have a beard, as you know,” Fleetwood continues, before I excitedly interject, confessing to knowing all about how he had to shave it off for the full, fish-like makeup and prosthetics. “Right,” he continues, “so I only had like three or four lines, so I said, ‘Look, you know, I’d love to do it, [but] I’m going to play hardball here: as long as you can guarantee me—I’ve always wanted to beam down or beam up, it doesn’t matter which. So I got to beam down onto the starship and I’m still there, apparently, as the Antedean, on Deck D, in jail.” So Mick Fleetwood’s alien character is permanently in the brig of the starship Enterprise. And in real life, he’s a downto-earth dude who, through his decades of cosmic fame and beyond-extensive travel of planet Earth, has come to call Maui “absolutely” home, passionately enough to grace us Mauians with two star-packed gigs amidst his Fleetwood Mac world tour, balls and all. Speaking of which: “Maybe I should have a couple of coconuts hanging down—who knows?” MTW

Real characters Incendiary war film, dumb comedy have one thing in common: honesty The Hurt Locker


Rated R/131 min. Of all the directors to make a comeback after years out of the spotlight, there is no one who deserves it more than Kathryn Bigelow. Bigelow (Point Break, Strange Days, Blue Steel) is the only female action movie director with a large, consistently great body of work. Her best films are ultra-violent, richly stylish and always exciting, but a number of flops took away her clout and her visibility dimmed. Her latest stars Jeremy Renner as a soldier in Iraq who’s sent out to defuse deadly improvised explosive devices. Bigelow takes a fresh approach to the Iraq war: instead of fashioning a preachy, heavy-handed rant, she’s made an action movie, plain and simple, documenting the day-to-day encounters of U.S. soldiers who walk away shaken, adrenalized or not at all from the horrors

they witness. From the first frame, a quote citing war as a drug, Bigelow dives into the notion that soldiers with a letsget-’em bravado will fare better than those in a constant state of fear. It may not make for a typically somber Hollywood film, but this is far more authentic, thought provoking and complex than other, more overtly political films on the same subject. The ending is so gung-ho patriotic, some may have a hard time with it, but it

exploits of the ultra-stupid Beavis and Butthead or nailing the horrors of dimwit bosses and the barely contained rage that lies in the next cubicle in Office Space, the plots of Judge’s TV shows and films have always taken a backseat to his affectionately drawn characters. Extract has only the slightest story, about how the owner of a vanilla extract plant (Jason Bateman) plots an affair with an attractive new employee (Mila Kunis) while going to outrageous lengths to keep his marriage afloat. The characters work because they’re recognizable: David Koechner is perfect as the irritating neighbor who’s so nice, you just can’t tell him off; J.K. Simmons is a deadpan wonder as the factory head who has too much contempt to learn anyone’s name; Ben Affleck steals every scene he’s in as a druggie bartender; and Bateman, playing a man as flawed as he is likable, finds a lot of truth by not trying too hard.

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 goldfish who longs to be a little girl 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. 101 min. SHORTS - PG - Family - A magic rainbow colored rock hurdles from the heavens, hitting 11 year-old Toe Thompson (Jimmy Bennett) in the noggin and subsequently rocking his world. As might happen when a little boy has at his disposal a wish-granting implement, the town is overrun with gargantuan boogers and alligator armies—which isn’t quite so bad as when the adults catch wind and covet the rock for their own. 89 min. TAKING WOODSTOCK - R - Comedy - Director Ang Lee again mixes it up, this time telling the tale of Elliot Tiber (Demetri Martin) who—in an effort to save his family’s motel business—invites a high-profile concert into his backyard after promoters lose their permit in a neighboring town. The result: lots of mud, a little granola, grossly inadequate restroom facilities and one of the world’s most historic concerts. 121 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.

THIS WEEK’S PICKS Living Legend Thursday (Sept. 10), 7:30pm, Castle Theater, MACC, Kahului,

Outstanding Okinawans Saturday (Sept. 12), 10am-2pm, Maui Mall, Kahului


Okinawans have a proud history on Maui, and invite “uchinanchu and uchinanchu-atheart” to join the cultural festivities of the Maui Okinawan Kenjin Kai’s (MOKK) annual Maui Okinawan Festival, co-sponsored by the Maui Mall. Myself uchinanchu by adoption, raised on my dad’s home-cooked Okinawan pork and andagi, I’ve made no small secret that I’m a big fan of the MOKK and proud student of Komei Juku Maui—samurai swordsmanship under the tutelage of Robert Montgomery Sensei and Guy Junker Sensei—a group scheduled to perform at this year’s festivities at 12:20pm. Kathy Collins will emcee the event, which commences at 9:30am with a parade of Okinawan flags and “shishimai,” or lion dance. The infectious beats of Maui Okinawan Taiko Group (10:20am) and the Hawaii Taiko Kai (11:10am) will surely captivate audiences; those performances separated by guest speakers the likes of Mayor Charmaine Tavares, Hawaii United Okinawa Association (HUOA) Executive Director Jane F. Serikaku, as well as HUOA President Ford A. Chinen. “Odori,” a dance style that originated during the Edo period, will twice be presented by Cheryl Nakasone and her students (11am and 11:55am). The afternoon closes with a special performance by Calabash (12:35pm), followed by the Ryukyu Group (1:35pm). 70 E. Kaahumanu Ave., Kahului.

As a proud, wrist-strong member of the Colbert Nation, I’m particularly stoked about John Legend’s Revolver Tour gracing the MACC (thanks to the fine folks at BAMP Project). After all, I first fell in love with the soulful singer/songwriter, and producer after he performed “The Girl is Mine,” in a clever duet with Stephen Colbert, on The Colbert Report, battling for the affections of Lady Liberty. Additionally, Legend appeared on the finale of the sixth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm, another personal boob tube favorite. OK, enough of the TV dork stuff. Seriously, Legend is not only a multi-platinum artist whose earliest recording roots go back to Lauryn Hill’s 1998 release, Everything is Everything, but an amazingly active advocate for impoverished people in Mbola, Tanzania, with his admirable “Show Me Campaign” (check it out at If you’re thinking that all my yammer is a lot of yawn, I’ll chalk it up to the man having no need for a Pick bump—he’s already, well, a legend in the making. So if you’re still scrambling to get tickets, good luck. If you’ve got them secured, go and live it up. One Cameron Way, Kahului.

Hot Dog! Saturday (Sept. 12), 12-4pm, Lahaina Cannery Mall

Garden Gala Sunday (Sept. 13), 1-5pm, Yokouchi Family Estate, Wailuku, $75

Sirius, “The Dog Star,” the brightest in the constellation Canis Major, moves heliacally in the northern hemisphere’s late summer skies, leading the ancients to believe it contributed to the mid-year heat. As we head into the second week of September, these final “dog days of summer” still have the Valley Isle Kennel Club’s tongues lolling, and the group brings back to the Lahaina Cannery Mall its event, “Responsible Dog Ownership Day.” More than 12 breeds of trained pooches (including Belgian Sheepdog, Doberman Pinscher, Golden Retriever, Labrador Retriever, Australian Shepherd, Irish Wolf Hound, Chihuahua, Toy Fox Terrier and Miniature Poodle, and their humans, of course) will showcase their unique qualities throughout the afternoon. As the event name suggests, this is an opportunity to learn more about the Valley Isle Kennel Club and what you can do to be a more responsible canine owner. Call 661-5304 for more information. 1221 Honoapiilani Hwy., Lahaina.

“MAPA (Maui Academy of Performing Arts) has grown into one of the state’s largest performing arts organizations,” says board president Keith Ranney. Their Annual Garden Party Fundraiser—in its 21st year—is their key money-raising event and helps support their inspiring range of educational programs. Attendees can stroll the grounds of the historic Yokouchi Family Estate to the tunes of Moondance as well as Bentley Kalaway, while enjoying “fresh art” being created by local painters and sculptors—those pieces will be auctioned off at the close of the event (in addition to an impressive silent auction). Gourmet offerings from an array of proprietors will be available, as will sippables from event sponsors Hawaii Liquor Superstore. Maximize your greenback with the “Garden Green” program, where every $75 buys you a $100 Garden Green gift certificate, good for redemption at the Garden Shoppe (handmade millinery, plants, garden items and more) or at either auction. Call 2448760 ext. 221 for more information. 2471 W. Main St., Wailuku.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Miners used to carry canaries into coal mines. Since the birds were more sensitive to toxic gases, they’d become ill before the miners, who would then have a chance to escape. Keep your eyes and ears open; the warning signs before you are certainly not as obvious as a bird falling stiff-legged from its perch, but they’re not hard to miss if you’re looking for them. And just like the bird-keeping miners, you still have plenty of time to get out. Ignore (or fail to notice) those warnings at your own peril. Looking back, they’ll be all too obvious, and you’ll kick yourself for not paying attention.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Your newest venture isn’t likely to show immediate results, so don’t expect them; you’ll only be disappointed. That’s like going to the gym twice and being bummed because you didn’t lose ten pounds and gain visible muscle tone right away. Persistence and consistency will pay off, but these things take time. You’re not used to this kind of slow project; it will take a long time to come to fruition (and may never be technically “done”). However, this falls under the category of good things coming to those who wait; patience is your best ally right now. If you don’t have much, develop it.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Sticking to your guns is all well and good, but you do sometimes lack the awareness of exactly who you’re disagreeing with. It’s probably a new concept for you, but sometimes it’s better to just bite your tongue and back down and yield a little territory, given your relative positions. The Scorpio attitude is usually, “I don’t give a shit what anyone else thinks,” but sadly that’s a little naïve. There are some people whose opinions can have a tremendous impact on your current situation. Being flexible and bending a little will greatly expand your ability to ultimately get your ideas across. Standing firm and unyielding now, however, would only limit you.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Leaving things open-ended doesn’t actually leave your options open—it just inconveniences everyone who’s put themselves out there for you. Being vague about your commitments is lame. If someone invites you out to dinner, and you tell them, “maybe,” it means they can’t invite anyone else, but might still be dateless on Saturday night. Be decisive, clear, and forthright this week, even if that translates to what you perceive as rudeness or even meanness. Saying, “no, not now, not ever,” might feel cruel, but if that’s the case, it’s kinder to say so than, “maybe next time.” Be as brutal as you must, but as kind as you can.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

There are many different paths to a given goal, many different means to any end. You Goats tend to view things rather linearly, drawing straight lines between points A and B, and only considering alternative paths when they promise to be more efficient or effective. However, the most “effective” or “efficient” route isn’t necessarily the best one, and what’s best for one person isn’t necessarily so for someone else. You need to shed your judgments and take a more holistic approach. Yes, accomplishing your goal should still take top spot on your agenda, but be more flexible about how you do so. For instance, if doing something in a way that is 10% less efficient makes everyone 50% happier while doing it, it might be well worth your while.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Sometimes you’re like a giraffe trying to blend in with the gazelles. You might feel like you have an awful lot in common, but your essential differences are still going to make you stand out. There is something to be said about seeking out a crowd you’d feel more at home in, but for some people this mythical social “home” might not even exist. Therefore, I suggest trying to make yourself as comfortable as you can right where you are. Yes, you’ll always be, to some extent, completely different than those whose lives you share, but being the beloved adopted outsider might ultimately suit you better than just being another member of the herd.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Just because you’re able to go to Hell and back, and return with fruit, doesn’t mean you should. Hardly anyone even wants to eat those nasty underworld pomegranates, so why put yourself through all that hardship and suffering? Your life has enough of that as it is, so there’s no reason to go for more, especially since no one asked you to. We all know you’re capable of extraordinary things, and we love seeing you shine. However, you have nothing to prove here—except maybe that you’re not prone to making stupid choices, or proud owner of a martyr complex.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Be careful—being a free spirit is often akin to being flaky. While the former is whimsical and loveable, no one enjoys the latter quality. It’s possible, of course, to march to the beat of your own drum without being unbearably undependable, but it takes a certain kind of groundedness that doesn’t come naturally to you Rams. It must be cultivated. I would hate to see you lose your idiosyncratic flair, but I’d be thrilled to know I could count on you when I needed you. There’s a way to have both, and this week is a great week to discover, embrace, and practice it.

Dark chocolate and chili peppers might sound gross—until you try them, when you realize that they’re actually a great combo, as long you like things spicy. You tend to stick with what you know and love, and are generally content with that. Mixing things up and rocking the boat are things that alarm or bug you, but since that’s what’s happening this week, like it or not, I suggest you lower your center of gravity, hang on, and try to enjoy the ride. There’s a lot to enjoy here, as long you’re not hung up on what you’re not digging about the new scenario—a tendency that is all too likely if you’re not careful. Lighten up, loosen up, and open up. If you’re flexible enough, you’ll probably really like what happens next.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Mind your own business. You have a nose for interesting situations, and part of how you keep yourself entertained is involving yourself in scenarios that don’t necessarily concern you. That’s all well and good, especially when you use your communication skills to help resolve a conflict or bring people together. But sometimes you need to just butt out completely. That means not even lending one person or the other (or, goodness forbid, both) your sympathetic ear. It means walking away and saying, “get in touch when you’re both over it.” That’s a new paradigm for you, I know. Nevertheless I hope that this week you’ll give it a try.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You’re trying to walk without crutches on a broken leg. In a way, I admire your fortitude and stubbornness, but in this scenario you’ve taken it to kind of an extreme, don’t you think? What are you trying to prove, and to whom, and why? I’m not convinced you have satisfactory answers to all those questions, and even if you do, I’m also unconvinced that there’s not an easier, better, and less excruciating way to accomplish exactly those goals. This week, instead of torturing yourself for no good reason, seek the painless alternative that will get you to exactly the same place.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Repetitiveness, while not your favorite thing, isn’t a huge problem for you. For most Leos, if you liked something once, you’ll probably like it a hundred more times (as long as they’re not all in a row). Whereas some signs need constant newness, you’re happy with a rotating list of favorites, with only the occasional unfamiliar surprise thrown in. You thrive in a happy, stable routine. Unfortunately, your recent more random situations have been anything but. This week, focus on manifesting a bit more of that joyful, familiar stability back into your life, so that you can enjoy the surprises as they should be: book-ended by things you already love.
