[ Coconut Wireless ] “Not great, but coulda been worse” is probably the best way to sum up the verdict in the Maui Lani case—for both sides. After a protracted trial, the jury awarded $232,700 in total damages, but to only six of the 11 plaintiffs. The jury also let the contractor, Kila Kila Builders, off the hook, heaping all the monetary blame on developer VP&PK. The case, you’ll recall, centers on a collection of Kahului residents who say their tranquility was shattered and property damaged by the lengthy construction project. Attorney Lance Collins, who represented the plaintiffs, told me that while the verdict shows that “the community believes there’s a line that was crossed,” his clients are disappointed, primarily because not everyone was awarded damages and Kila Kila escaped unscathed. Collins says he respects the jury’s decision and thanks them for their service, but hinted that this fight may not be over just yet… As the Maui Planning Commission considers a proposed expansion at the Grand Wailea (see By the Numbers, pg. 9), the resort can rest easy in the knowledge that it’s already considered the “most luxurious” in the state, at least according to the results of a Pacific Business News online poll. As of this writing, 30 percent of respondents had picked the Grand, putting it well ahead of its Neighbor Island rivals. Fitting PBN chose the word “luxurious,” which in addition to “fancy” also means “excessively ornate” and “expensive.”…

LOCAL An interesting (and by “interesting” I mean “sad and frightening”) thing about the ag inspector layoffs (118 Department of Agriculture workers, and 50 of 78 total inspectors for those new to the story) is that, while they’re being sold by Gov. Lingle as a belt-tightening measure, they may end up costing the state far more than the $3.8 million they save. That argument is convincingly made in a recent release from the Haiku-based Hawaii Agriculture & Conservation Coalition. The Coalition points out, as others have, that the state’s 300-plus export nurseries could be shut down as a result of the firings,

along with produce exporters. This, in turn, would have a trickle down effect (and not in the pie-in-the-sky, Reaganesque sense) on ancillary businesses that sell, say, fertilizer or growing equipment. And that’s not even mentioning the fallout from the arrival and spread of invasive species like the little fire ant or coqui frog, which could sap hundreds of millions of dollars from the state’s coffers for control and eradication. (As an example of how having ag inspectors prevents this from happening: in February, a package containing 17 piranhas was intercepted at the Kahului Airport. If you don’t think that’s a big deal, hop in a bathtub with 17 piranhas and get back to me.) This is clearly one of those short-term gain, longterm loss scenarios and proof that Lingle’s balance-the-budget-without-raising-taxesat-all-costs mantra is threatening to leave Hawaii in a world of hurt… On the same note: On September 22, Hawaii teachers agreed to a new contract that includes 17 furlough days, to be spread between October 2009 and June 2010, according to a KITV report. The furlough “holidays” are reportedly slated for Fridays. I’m sure few students will shed a tear at the prospect of more three-day weekends, but for working parents it means scrambling to find childcare, an expense many can scarcely afford. It also means fewer days of instruction for Hawaii’s young minds, and more days for unsupervised keiki to get into mischief. As with the ag inspectors, this is one of those essential services that everyone depends on whether they realize it or not, and cutting it this drastically will have far-reaching implications…

narrative begins in 2005, when “a secret gathering is convened by Buffett at a Maui mountain retreat, where 17 very wealthy people agree to take back the country they think has been betrayed.” Hmmm, a world where The Cos and Yoko take a Maui vacay and the result is a viable plan to rescue humanity? Sounds like the kind of world where Ralph Nader could get elected president… A few weeks ago, I praised Rep. Neil Abercrombie for using the phrase “health insurance reform” (emphasis mine) while discussing the issue with Lance Holter on Akaku. Now it seems Obama has at long last gotten on board. In a September 21 Twitter post (yes, ancient news in Twitterland by the time you read this, but still instructive for our purposes), the President (or whoever writes his Twitter posts) wrote: “Every American needs to know what health insurance reform means for them,” and linked to (Note: fact-checking and critical thinking are a must when considering the claims made there, just like anywhere.)

Where have all the flowers gone? A hike through ‘awapuhi country reveals the devastating effects of the plant’s popularity


couring the damp, steeply banked hills, my hiking companions are light-footed rock hoppers, deftly navigating the large, slippery streamside stones. I on the other hand stumble about, overly cautious of the perfect cylinders bored deep into the boulders—evidence of once relentless waterfalls—filled with wriggling, stagnant water. Mostly though, our careful steps are out of a desire to not trample the roots of the plants we seek—the prized and increasingly hard to find Zingiber zerumbet. Commonly known here and abroad by its Hawaiian name, ‘awapuhi—more specifically ‘awapuhi kuahiwi or sometimes, opuhi—this edible, medicinal plant originated in India and was introduced to the Hawaiian Islands by early Polynesians. A perennial, the plant’s stalks die off in the autumn, the rhizomes staying dormant underground, then are renewed again in spring. Thriving in shaded yet warm areas kept damp with running water or consistent rainfall, it can spread easily to form lovely ground cover, the stalks upwards of 1 to 2 feet tall. The ‘awapuhi kuahiwi has many homeopathic uses—mostly derived from preparing the root—including easing the pain of sprains, stomachaches and toothaches, alleviating indigestion and increasing circulation (much like its close relative, a ginger of the culinary bend, the ‘awapuhi pake or Zingiber officinale). Especially coveted is the clear, gelatinous liquid that can be collected from the mature, bright crimson blooms that emerge fiery and phoenix-like from the forest floor detritus in the mid to late summer. This intoxicatingly aromatic goo is a natural softener and shine enhancer; the fragrance alone entices regardless of the cosmetic benefits. It’s no wonder common nicknames for ‘awapuhi are “shampoo flower” or “shampoo ginger,” the liquid even achieving a sudsy quality of sorts when worked through hair or on the skin. Google ‘awapuhi, and you’ll

Tempting as it may be to take the flowering stems home, doing so results in a barren landscape, devoid of the scarlet pops of the peeping shampoo flower once so common this time of year. ‘awapuhi is grown on a solar-powered farm in Hawaii, using desalinated water they process themselves. Paul Mitchell is not alone in capitalizing on the benefits of ‘awapuhi. Increasing attention is being given to natural and organic products. So much so that products containing—or at least claiming to contain—‘awapuhi can be found everywhere, from high-end, locally made Ala Lani Awapuhi products to Costco’s Kirkland brands. But the popularity of ‘awapuhi has taken a toll on the wild population. The vibrant, cone-shaped blossoms— abundant in my youth—are evermore difficult to locate, and seem smaller and less mature. One problem is the common practice of removing the flowers for home or waterfall-side use. Once the stem has been plucked from the plant, it will no longer produce and can kill the plant altogether. Tempting as it may be to take the flowering stems home (they’ll still produce a little more juice, even when harvested and after having been given a

over wide, webbed tree roots, we’re cautious to not squeeze the wild ginger blossoms too hard, in an effort to avoid the sickening little pop when the stem breaks loose, demolishing prospects for future use. Along the trail we pass several that have been plucked and abandoned by those before us, the nub at the end looking a little like a dislocated ball and joint bone. It’s sad to see the dead flower’s color paling to yellowed tans, no longer capable of sharing its natural gift with us and with those to come. As few and far between as they seem, a little ‘awapuhi goes a long way. By the time we reach our waterfall destination, my hair is saturated with the sweet stuff, buoyant and more lively than I’ve seen it in ages. Often my prayer is for better hair, but my new mantra might become that all shampoo-seeking stream-goers will tread softly and enjoy ‘awapuhi sparingly—in a way that can be shared.

[ Rob Report ]

Picking up the pace Local ‘inertiatives’ help us clean up our act, move forward “An object at rest tends to stay at rest, and an object in motion tends to stay in motion, unless acted upon by another force.” –From Isaac Newton’s First Law of Motion


ny way you look at it, the concept of inertia is tricky. When things are in motion, they invariably are kept in check by other forces, notably gravity and friction. In the big world around us, government red tape, corporate interests and political bickering are among the factors that inhibit forward motion. But the greater part of inertia is what might be called giddyup, gumption or initiative. Enthusiasm and teamwork are vital, whether the objective is moving a boulder out of the road or making the switch to renewable energy sources. Sometimes it’s worth checking the roadmap—the obstacle might be there for a reason, and perhaps an alternate route is preferable. Last weekend sparkled with examples of cooperation and commitment, reminding us that “inertiative” can be found all around us. The individual and team accomplishments of those who took on Saturday’s island-wide beach clean-ups, the Pailolo Channel canoe crossing or Sunday’s Maui Marathon help illustrate our ability to accomplish great, difficult things. To counter the sometimes-myopic perspective that progress simply isn’t happening fast enough to save us from ourselves, it’s important to accentuate real-life events that offer hope.


his year’s “Get the Drift and Bag It” beach cleanup was the largest in its 18year history on Maui. At least two-dozen coastal locations benefited from volunteer efforts, coordinated by Community Work Day and other entities, including the County, Ocean Conservancy, Surfrider Foundation and South Maui Sustainability. An estimated 500 people turned out to help in Lahaina, thanks to the

Nope, they’re not looking for a lost contact lens. organizational gumption of last week’s Maui Time cover boy, Matt Lane. Haiku resident Paige Alisen checked in volunteers at Hookipa Beach Park on Maui’s North Shore. Hampered by a sprained shoulder, she said she nevertheless was “jazzed” by the response when she told two dozen helpers that they were part of a countywide effort. “We had people from Oregon and Washington as well as Maui,” said Alisen, herself a recent arrival from Northern California. “One woman arrived late, but kept picking up things on her own even after we were finished.” Surfrider Foundation, which coordinated that effort, has also spearheaded native Hawaiian plant restoration on the hillside above the park. Barry Sultanoff, an M.D. working in the psychiatric field, ran Sunday’s 26.2-mile trek from Kahului to Kaanapali. Though he ran four marathons in the late ’70s and participated in Makena triathalons each of the past three years, he never considered running another marathon until it came to him in vivid recurring dreams. “While it was great for me personally, this is such a great community event,” said Sultanoff. “There is a strong metaphor at the finish line, for setting a goal and accomplishment.” Sultanoff said he was moved by many personal stories and vignettes throughout the day. He spoke with a leader of a yellow-shirted team based in Los Angeles that collectively garnered more than a million dollars in donations for HIVAIDS research. “It’s a great reminder of

what’s possible,” said Sultanoff. A first-time participant in Saturday’s Pailolo Challenge outrigger canoe race was similarly inspired. Linda Lopez was among many wahine who paddled the 30 miles from DT Fleming Park in West Maui to Kaunakakai Pier on Molokai. Lopez, a licensed massage therapist, said she is new to long-distance paddling. “It is amazing to realize what we did—and that we’re going to do it again next week,” she said with enthusiasm. The race serves a dual purpose—as both a warm-up and a way to bring the canoes to Molokai for the following week’s Na Wahine O Ke Kai 41-mile race to Oahu. “There was a time when the Molokai Hoe [which first competed in 1952] was all men,” said Lopez, “when nobody considered that women might be able to do it. Now we have our own event.”


nother issue overcame political inertia last Friday at the County Council chambers in Wailuku. After months of discussion and debate, a bill to ban GMO taro in Maui County unanimously passed first reading. With taro growers and supporters providing articulate testimony, the atmosphere was reportedly “chicken skin” at times. While University of Hawaii researchers claim they need to utilize biotech to help thwart taro diseases, farmers disputed that, saying their greatest need is abundant cold, fresh water, which too often is diverted for other uses. Council Chair Danny Mateo offered

his own comments before the roll call vote, stating that a duty to protect Hawaiians and the host culture “starts right here, right now.” Should the bill pass second reading on October 2, it will go to the desk of Mayor Tavares (who has questioned how the County might enforce such a ban), to be signed into law. One of the panelists at the recent Maui County Energy Expo was Chris Lovvern, Alternative Energy Director for Castle and Cooke on Lanai. I called to ask for clarifications on their renewable energy goals, which include 30 percent solar, 40 percent biodiesel and 40 percent wind power by 2012. “That is an extremely aggressive and ambitious timeline,” Lovvern told me. “It is dependent upon PUC approvals and agreements with MECO, and the big wind depends on the undersea cable. By 2012, I don’t know if it’s feasible.” He went on to say that only one-third of their 10-acre, 1.2 megawatt solar installation is currently providing power to the grid. “We’re stuck at 400 kilowatts,” said Lovvern. He said they’re waiting for battery storage to come on line, but that their Power Purchase Agreement also caps their output at 600 kw until the remainder can be integrated into MECO’s system. Lanai’s 7,000-panel solar photovoltaic array is the largest in the state, but it’s disappointing to see it so underutilized several months after the gala dedication. Lanai, with a modest peak electrical demand of around 5 mw, would appear to have some advantages (wind, solar resources) despite its geographical isolation. One wonders if a smaller scale wind project could supply local needs first, before Oahu-based interests look to import as much as 300 mw via a billiondollar submarine cable. As we set ambitious goals for sustainability, it would be wise to take inspiration from the models of success all around us. Lopez noted that her fellow paddlers were from different walks of life, but were united by a common goal and the fact that they needed one another not only to succeed but to survive. “Only through the unity—lokahi—and passion is it possible to do this,” said Lopez. “We help and support each other, and there is so much power in that.” MTW To share or save this article, type: LC Watch will return next week.

[ News of the Weird ] UNDEAD ON ARRIVAL If society were ever attacked by zombies, we would probably be doomed, and quickly. That was the conclusion of two university researchers in Ottawa, Ontario, who set up mathematical models hypothesizing zombie attacks as infectious diseases with the wellknown characteristics of zombie biology from popular fiction. In fact, according to a July BBC News report, zombies are more threatening than virulent diseases because they can regenerate (unless decapitated or incinerated, of course). More troubling was the researchers’ presumption that zombies move slowly, as in older movies, but in recent fiction, they’re super-quick, making them nearly invincible.

WE BRIT YOU NOT (1) In June, the Peterborough City Council ordered retirees who come together for weekly coffee at the public library to give up hot drinks, in case one accidentally spilled on a child. (2) In July the Dagenham Pool in Essex, citing (according to the manager) drowning risks, banned swimmers from doing “lengths” and forced them instead to swim “widths.” (3) In June the Brighton and Hove City Council ordered nature-lover Hilaire Purbrick, 45, out of the cave that has been his residence for 16 years, citing its lack of a “fire exit.”

BACKWARD PROGRESS In April, the Pelham, Mass. Board of Selectmen notified residents that it proposed to “alter a [fourmile] portion of Amherst Road” and needed their co-operation. The board said the road, in service with exactly the same contour since 1822, must better conform to what Amherst Road looked like on an 1822 map. Thus, some property owners along the route

were asked to cede some rights to the government to un-modernize the road.

DOMESTIC UNREST (1) A couple fought with each other using water, mouthwash and powdered whey protein (Bremerton, Wash., July). (2) A wife repeatedly punched her husband and then, as officers arrived, pulled him inside the house by his ear (Niceville, Fla., August). (3) A 78-year-old woman kicked her husband in the groin several times recently because she believes he had an affair 35 years ago (Lynnwood, Wash., May).

WHAT WILL PETA MAKE OF THIS? In August, Jorge Iglesias petitioned a judge in Madison, Wis., to regain custody of his 66 roosters and hens that police confiscated in a suspected cockfighting raid. Iglesias said he feared that the Dane County Humane Society, temporarily holding the animals, was treating them with “cruel and barbaric” abuse.

WEATHER, OR NOT Geography professor Melanie Patton Renfrew, 54, was convicted in Burbank, Calif., in August of violating a judge’s order to stop stalking KNBC-TV weatherman Fritz Coleman. Renfrew had badgered Coleman for two years, via e-mail and telephone calls, about his “error” in terminology, confusing “onshore” winds with “offshore” winds. Coleman, she insisted, needed to apologize. “Offshore” winds blow out to sea; “onshore” winds blow in.

To Bounty Music for impressive longevity. The Best of Mauiwinning music store celebrated 30 years in business last month. Even in stable financial times that’s an impressive feat, but given the current climate it’s particularly noteworthy. Owners Paul and Avi Weinstein have created a small mecca for local music lovers, in no small part by embracing and displaying the unheralded versatility of the ukulele.

To Maui Brewing Co. for giving Maui a good name in the beer world. This summer, one of Hawaii’s only truly local breweries won multiple awards, including eight medals at the inaugural United States Open Beer Championships and three more at the North American Beer Awards. (Side note: how does one become a judge at these events? Because that’s gotta rank in the top ten jobs of all-time.) MBC also opened its new tasting room at the production facility in Lahaina, allowing local suds-lovers to get a behind-the-scenes peek at the brewing and canning process between sips (or gulps, depending). To Hawaiian Airlines for sticking it to passengers. At a time when many airlines are hemorrhaging money, Hawaiian managed to turn profits of $23.5 million and $27.5 million in the first and second quarters, respectively. Yes, those numbers are lower than last year, but profit is profit. So how do they reward their customers? Why, by tacking on a $10 fee for the first checked bag on inter-island flights, of course. (Child car seats and wheelchairs are exempt, so we give them a small slice of credit for recognizing the PR headache that would accompany nickel-and-diming babies and disabled people.)

To Minit Stop for a lame bag policy. We got wind of this from reader Christopher, who witnessed a customer, having just purchased a six-pack of beer, telling the clerk he didn’t need a plastic bag and could use his backpack. The clerk replied that it’s “company policy,” and when the man asked what he was supposed to do with the unwanted bag, he was reportedly told “throw it away.” To our knowledge, there is no Maui or Hawaii law requiring beer to be bagged. A call to Minit Stop seeking comment on this wasteful—not to mention fiscally irresponsible—practice was not returned at press time.

Keiki Care has taken a beating from opponents of government-subsidized insurance.

But was it really a failure? By Jacob Shafer

I 12

t’s difficult to say when, exactly, the latest attempt to reform health care in America turned sour. Some might point to the day a man flashed a loaded firearm outside a “town hall” meeting in New Hampshire along with a sign bearing the Thomas Jefferson quote about refreshing the tree of liberty “with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” Others might bring up Rep. Joe Wilson of South Carolina interrupting the President’s joint session address to call Obama a liar (twice), a breach of decorum that drew finger wags from both sides of the aisle. Still others might argue this debate was poisoned from the start, that civility and nuanced discourse were mere fantasies > pg.13 destined to be shattered by the special interest cudgels of lobbyists and cable network pundits.

SEPTEMBER 24, 2009


But there was another moment, closer to home, that tells the story equally well—when a little-known children’s health care initiative in Hawaii became a national story, a rallying cry for the forces gathered against what both sides had agreed to call “Obamacare.” In retrospect it was too perfect: a government-subsidized program in the President’s birth state that was now on life support, stripped of funding by the state’s Republican Governor, ostensibly in the name of curbing profligate spending. FOX News wasn’t the first to pick up the scent, but they’ve got the biggest bullhorn. In July, Sean Hannity aired a segment in the series “Universal Nightmare” in which Gov. Linda Lingle called Keiki Care a “cautionary tale” fraught with “unintended consequences,” and the right-wing blogosphere lit up like Rush Limbaugh’s face at a Sarah Palin rally. Soon, the prevailing narrative on Keiki Care was all but set in pohaku: it was a failure, an unfair drain on taxpayers and a clear example of government overstepping its bounds. Lost amid the din was any real, cogent analysis of the program. Did it actually help anyone? What was the impetus behind its creation and ultimate dismantling? And, most importantly, do the detractors have a better idea?


ct 236, also known as the Hawaii Children’s Health Care Program, was passed in 2007. Its goal was to provide coverage to so-called “gap children”—kids who were uninsured, but whose families didn’t qualify for other state and federal programs like Medicaid either because of income or residency status. In addition to the obvious, sound bitefriendly desire to protect the well-being of the next generation, the motives were financial: according to data from the Hawaii Health Information Corporation, uninsured children paid 3,302 visits to state emergency rooms in 2008, at a total cost of $4.4 million. “Taxpayers should know it is cheaper to cover kids with health insurance than [to] cover expensive hospital costs for uninsured kids,” Barbara Luksch, project director of Hawaii Covering Kids, says in a quote posted on the advocacy group’s Web site. Though it’s been pigeonholed by opponents as purely governmentrun, in reality Keiki Care was backed by a partnership between the state Department of Human Services (DHS) and the private Hawaii Medical Services Association (HMSA), with the state paying $25.50 per month per child.

TAG TEAM: FOX’s Sean Hannity and Gov. Linda Lingle. Gov. Lingle initially supported the plan, but that support quickly eroded. On November 1, 2008, DHS terminated its contract with HMSA. The following day, Linda Smith, a “senior policy advisor” in the Lingle Administration, wrote an op-

Kymberly Pine summed up the message of Gov. Lingle and others who wanted to quash Keiki Care once and for all. “People are soaking up the taxpayers’ money [who] don’t need the help that we intended this bill for,” said Pine. “People who can afford

The best alternative to Keiki Care is not private insurance, which rules our current system, but other public options. That’s a hugely important point. It’s also one that’s been virtually ignored. ed in the Honolulu Star-Bulletin in which she argued that “Keiki Care fail[ed] to achieve its worthy goal” and “inefficiently utilized state funds by subsidizing families who did not need help.” Smith cited figures showing that, of the roughly 2,000 children enrolled in the program, a significant majority had previously been insured through HMSA’s Children’s Plan, with their parents footing the bill. (No one denies that Keiki Care helped some legitimate, uninsured “gap children.” A DHS estimate puts the number at approximately 300.) HMSA continued funding the program through the end of 2008. Earlier this year, the legislature amended Act 236 to extend Keiki Care to June 30, 2012. Funding was slashed from $600,000 to $200,000 annually, which would have cut the number of kids covered from 2,000-plus to around 600. Despite the reduced cost (a small fraction of the state’s total budget shortfall), Gov. Lingle vetoed the bill on July 10. Less than a week later, the legislature overrode her veto, but the following day the Governor announced she would not release money for Keiki Care. Addressing her colleagues before the override vote, state Rep.

health insurance or who were paying for health insurance switched over.” Note the way Pine conflates “people who can afford health insurance” with “people who were paying for health insurance.” If the financial crisis has taught us anything it’s that people will pay for things they can’t afford. For many, it’s cars and houses and luxury items. But for people with more altruistic motives, it’s health insurance for their kids. How do we know that at least some of the families who were paying for HMSA’s coverage out of pocket didn’t need the help just as badly as those who weren’t?


o say that opponents of Keiki Care overstated their case is not to say the program didn’t have flaws. A December 2008 report from DHS’s Med-QUEST division pointed out that children enrolled in Keiki Care weren’t required to apply for other governmentsubsidized plans such as the Medicaidmanaged QUEST program, which offers more comprehensive benefits. QUEST eligibility was expanded in October 2006 and again in January 2008; families that enrolled in HMSA’s Children’s Plan

prior to the expansions might have been eligible for QUEST, DHS argued. It’s a valid point. But what’s interesting is that it actually runs counter to the argument of the anti-public health care crowd. The best alternative to Keiki Care, most everyone seems to agree, is not private insurance, which rules our current system, but other public options. As this debate expands beyond the efficacy of one specific program and becomes about our medical system as a whole, that’s a hugely important point. It’s also one that’s been virtually ignored. Anyone who looks at health care in America and sees something other than an epic national disaster is either delusional, out-of-touch or both. The private model has led us to a place where more than 30 million Americans don’t have health insurance, and even those who do are forced to navigate an inefficient, convoluted network of paperwork and preexisting conditions designed to maximize profits and, often, minimize coverage. The pro-privatization crowd likes to conjure the boogeyman of “government bureaucrats.” What they fail to acknowledge is that bureaucrats are already running the show—they’re just privately financed and thus wholly immune to the will of voters. The solution is, obviously, where the shouting begins. On one side are those clamoring for a public, single-payer system similar to the ones used in most of the industrialized world. On the other side are people who say we should do away with any government control and let individuals buy their insurance on the open market. In his recent speech to Congress, President Obama dismissed both of those notions as too extreme (though once upon a time candidate Obama expressed support for single-payer). Whether the President’s attempts at compromise and bipartisanship will lead to a genuine solution or an ineffectual, watereddown bill that leaves insurance companies firmly in the driver’s seat is an open question (though the answer, unfortunately, is becoming clearer by the day). But—even as the tide seems to have turned and all hope for a rational discussion (let alone solution) seems to have fizzled—we have to pay attention. We have to note what examples are being used, what statistics cited. And when one of those examples happens to be in our own backyard, we can’t let FOX News have the final word.

A sea change New Kihei fish joint proves healthy can still mean tasty

Breakfast & Football


1/2 Price Fish & Chips on Friday

f I had my way, restaurants would be judged on the basics—things like sauces and dressings. For example: at a typical fish place, the traditional cocktail sauce is ketchup, horseradish and lemon, right? Well, not at Coconut’s Fish Cafe in Kihei. Thanks to its eight secret ingredients—including a touch of cilantro—this cocktail is subtle and light. The words light (and healthy) don’t usually come to mind when you’re talking about fish and chips…or shrimp and chips… or calamari and chips. But, thanks to owner Mike Phillips, his fish menu at Coconut’s is very close to being fat free. Mike’s been in the restaurant business—serving mostly Italian food—for more than 30 years where, he points out, nothing was low fat. But when he got healthy himself 15 years ago he committed himself to providing healthy food to his customers. In fact, he says he hates traditional fried food. Very difficult, you might say, when you serve fish and chips. Not so, according to Mike. It’s about the fish, not the batter. The goal, he says, is light (there’s that word again) rather than the traditional heavy batter. The on-the-side coleslaw is another feat of culinary engineering. Mike’s daughter, Frances, experimented with 13 different recipes until she hit upon the right one. The result? Not too creamy, not too dry and (you guessed it) almost fat free. One of the most popular lunch items is the Caesar salad— Coconut’s sells as many as 30 of these at lunchtime. The secret is in the details. The lettuce is cold water-bathed for freshness and the dressing, developed by Mike’s mom, takes a day to prepare. I often gauge a restaurant by the quality of its Caesar and as far as I was concerned they had me at salad. The calamari and chips are also nautical miles away from the traditional tangle of tentacles and rubbery rings. They’re made by slicing actual calamari steaks so that they’re meatier, in a fish sort of way. The fish tacos, made with grilled ono or mahi mahi,

You can have them served on wheat or freshly baked sesame seed buns that are delivered daily. Or get them minus the bun, on white or brown rice. Mike points out that while Maui is traditionally white rice country, he serves a lot of brown rice with the burgers. What sets these burgers apart is the choice of preparations. While this feature is usually only available at high-end restaurants, Coconut’s gives you your


burger multiple ways: grilled butter, salt and pepper; south of the border with Ortega Chile; blackened, Cajun, lemon butter; and my favorite, Asian Flair with soy and wasabi, a sauce with a real kick, developed by Mike’s ex-wife. If you’re able to look past the food, check out the décor. The tables are carved like surfboards—complete with fins up— and the benches are shaped like paddles. Mike and his ohana are in the process of opening another location in Lahaina and hope to take the experience to Oahu sometime after that. Proving what a true family affair Coconut’s is: the restaurant is named for the family cat—who should be pleased with the menu. MTW To share or save this article, type:

Finding her voice Devotional music diva emerges from Madonna’s shadow


t was way cool and it’s totally different from what I’m doing now,” says Donna De Lory, when I bring up her most asked-about topic: her long career touring with Madonna. Fans of the Material Girl know De Lory as part of her innermost circle of backup singers and dancers. Beginning with 1987’s Who’s That Girl Tour and continuing until 2006’s Confessions Tour, De Lory has performed and recorded with Madonna for more than two decades. She was even in the music video for “Vogue.” So—when questions arise about life and times with “the best-selling female rock artist of the twentieth century,” according to the Recording Industry Association of America—you can understand why De Lory expresses multiple times how that experience was “totally different” from her solo pursuits. And though she says it cheerily, it’s tinged with the mildest here-wego-again ho-humness. “It was this huge chapter of my life—it went on for a long time,” says De Lory. “I did six tours with her, a lot of performances, a lot of records. When I started with her, I wanted to be a pop star just like her, and kind of lost sight of the music that I had inside of me. I didn’t even know I was a songwriter at that time. “It was always a very interesting experience to observe myself growing, still being ‘in’ that and being grateful to be there—but [also] feeling there’s something different growing inside myself. I was kind of joyfully and blissfully wrapped up in that world—[it was] where I had to be at that time. Which was a beautiful experience, it was amazing. But then I feel like I really outgrew it. I really woke up to something deeper inside myself, a deeper kind of music, things I wanted to talk about, the way I wanted to feel.” Backing up the ‘Madge’ has its benefits, even (and perhaps especially) when pursuing solo endeavors. Madonna would provide unreleased songs of her own authorship for De Lory to

Tours with the Material Girl have given way to world/devotional music. record, often producing them herself— songs like “Just A Dream,” originally intended for Madonna’s 1989 album Like a Prayer. Since 1993, De Lory has released nine albums. The tenth is nearing completion (a remix album of 2008’s Sanctuary) and she’s already at work on her eleventh release. Even amidst the demands of 20-plus years of world tours with Madonna, De Lory was able to gig solo on her nights off. “I would go off and do my own shows,” she remembers, “and connect with my audience through yoga centers—finding a home for my music in yoga centers and churches and community centers, and things like that.”


e Lory has established a place of prominence in the world/ devotional genre—in many ways antipodal to power-pop—infusing yoga philosophy and melodic mantras into her work. With her unremittingly airy and ethereal vocals, De Lory is all about being deep, living a life of intent, and “following your bliss.” Because of this, I didn’t anticipate the slightly valley-girl inflection in De Lory’s conversational voice. Nor did I expect her effortless chatter about remixing entire albums for club dance tracks with New York-based DJs, or that her daughters’

Mountains that they don’t visit often enough, “because we are so busy.” After some reflection, I found all this kind of endearing. The fact that I was surprised at all was more a reflection on my own assumptions than anything. De Lory is earthy and unabashed about her spiritual self and her visions for the future; she slips singing into her storytelling, but keeps a little mainstream sass. Even the anecdote of her introduction to learning mantras is touched by the privileged pizzazz. “I remember being at [this] party at [a] house in the Hollywood Hills and walking in and seeing ‘Gunapati Om’ projected on the wall… I loved it. My mind wasn’t involved in trying to analyze it, but I could just feel the effect it had on me and

my body and being part of the community and all those positive things you get from coming together and singing together and really being devotional together. “I couldn’t put my finger on it—Was it the melody? Was it his voice? Was it the people? It was just beautiful sweetness and people’s hearts being open and together. The room was packed and I was so touched by this, I just wanted to go the next day, you know?” She did more than go the next day. “Gunapati Om” became the opening track to her 2004 release The Lover and the Beloved. As the album’s liner notes explain: “[T]his CD is the perfect opportunity for me to explore the transcendent and meditative power of music.” Though her history of whirlwind world travels is one of those run-into-the-ground topics, it’s been the key to her finding roots and musical satisfaction. “It was really like I was just helping [Madonna] carry out her vision, as my musicians around me are helping me carry out mine,” she says. “Being away from that—because I was really in her world and her vision—I can really build my own [vision] and the people I want around me to help me carry that out.” MTW To share or save this article, type:

Lifeless ‘Body’ Horror/comedy done in by smarmy script, vapid star


SEPTEMBER 24, 2009

is obvious casting that does nothing for the movie but provide a sexy star for the poster.

Jennifer’s Body


Rated R/111 min. problem is that, despite obvious efforts to be another Heathers, the movie is never funny or scary enough. It barely rises above trashy slasher status and settles for being watchable but toothless. Fox’s “performance” is one of the biggest problems, as she doesn’t have the comic timing or acting chops to play an evil variation on the kind of role Seyfried (who is excellent here despite lame material) nailed in Mean Girls. Had the roles been reversed, with Seyfried playing the wicked Jennifer and Fox cast against type as a dowdy nerd, this could have been interesting, but Fox playing another vamp, with her breathy whisper and tight outfits,

t a pivotal moment in Jennifer’s Body, a horror/ comedy written by Juno scribe Diablo Cody, Jennifer, played by Megan Fox, flashes a big grin and reveals a mouth full of bloody, razor sharp teeth. Her smile is supposed to provide a big scare and induce nightmares, but you know what? I’ll bet this is the exact same toothy grin Fox gave her agent when he told her how much she’s getting paid to star in Transformers 3. Jennifer is a flaky but sweet high schooler whose best friend Anita (Amanda Seyfried) hangs on her every word and is troubled when, after they both survive a fire, Jennifer begins showing up at her place, in the middle of the night, covered in blood and mean as a snake. Let me cut to the chase for Fox’s fan base: the title is a tease. There’s no nudity. A bigger

This is why you floss, kids.

Cody can be a clever writer, but she’s also the Dane Cook of screenwriters: she stuffs pop culture references into dialogue that’s supposed to be witty but is simply showy and often inauthentic. Karyn Kusama, who directed both the wonderful Girlfight and the not-asbad-as-you’ve-heard Aeon Flux, gives us moments that feel like they’re leading to a great horror or comic set piece, but all the promising set ups are a bust. Even the obligatory prom climax, which one character ominously predicts will be a bloodbath, winds up being cornball. A constant theme is that Anita, despite having a loving boyfriend, is obsessed and possibly in love with Jennifer; they have a brief make-out scene that goes nowhere and was presumably included because: a) dudes want to see Fox make out with a girl; and b) the movie could win Best Kiss at next year’s MTV Movie Awards.

Keokea fest

With a love so rare and true

St. John’s has been serving the Keokea community for an impressive 109 years, their gorgeous grounds located just across the way from the Keokea Park (where, as my lovely predecessor Kate Bradshaw once wrote, “some of the most interesting people you’ll ever meet” congregate on Sundays…but back to the event at hand…) The popular St. John’s Kula Festival has been running strong for the last three decades and is nothing short of an Upcountry mainstay. Entertainment will include Na Hoku Hanohano Award-winner Jeff Peterson, as well as the Hula Honeys, Fred Lacar, Lousie Lambert and more. Each year, St. John’s shares the proceeds with different charitable organizations, and the 2009 celebrations will benefit Friends of the Children’s Justice Center and Carol Adams Youth Encouragement Services (YES) in Uganda. Support the effort and join the fun with ono grindz, children’s games, an auction, crafts, produce, plants and their lovely “tea room with a view.” 8992 Kula Hwy., Keokea, HI 96790. 808-878-1485.

Classic car owners love their wheels, and Peggy Sue’s once again gives them the chance to rev their stuff in the 14th Annual Classic Car Show. The event will feature performances by Hula Halau O Pohai Kealoha, music by Moondance (1pm), followed by an Elvis impersonator (2pm) so good he’s being flown in from Oahu. Speaking of Oahu, we’re Superferry free, so the event probably won’t see the same off-island turnout as last year, when the number of entrants topped 200 (including a Lamborghini group and a pro dragster), but muscling Mauians are sure to show up with No Kai Oi force to this event, a benefit for Big Brothers Big Sisters. All vehicles 1978 and older will qualify for the Big Brother Big Sister Award, the grand prize-winner to be announced at 5pm. Day-of registration begins at 11am and continues until event start time at 1pm, and costs $8. Pre-registration is of course ongoing, and signing up whittles the entry fee to $5. 1279 S. Kihei Rd., Kihei, HI 96753. 808-875-8944.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

I bet we’d be shocked at what percentage of people have totaled a car at some point in their lives. However, I doubt we’d be that surprised at how few of them were Virgos. Of course, there are some of you who’ve probably managed to wreck your vehicles, but I’d be willing to bet that the percentage is much lower than for those reckless Aries, death-wish Scorpios, or spacey Pisces. However, there are times when the improbable is much more likely to happen—and this is one of those. Drive especially carefully this week, Virgo.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Some of the things you do frustrate the people around you to no end. Make up your mind already! Of course, it’s not that easy, and I understand that your ability to see all sides makes it very difficult to make clear decisions or choices. However, just for this week, can you cut us all a break? I know it’s impossible to change your nature and start being inflexibly opinionated—but can’t you pretend for a while? Make a choice, arbitrarily if necessary) and just stick to it like you really can’t see the other side of the coin.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Being fairly obsessive yourself, you know how to handle others’ obsessions. Instead of defusing them, though (you know perfectly well that this bomb, primed to blow, would be rendered harmless if you just snipped the blue wire), you have a propensity to fuel the fire instead, just to see what happens next. Although that’s a fascinating tendency, it’s hardly constructive, and this week it’s ironically likely to distract you from more interesting and positive things. Resist those negative impulses (the kind that compelled you to scorch ants with a magnifying glass when you were kid), and just cut the blue wire already, so you can see all the cool shit that’s behind the bomb.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Cast a wide net. Ironically, I’m giving the same advice to your cousins, those Leos, for a totally different reason. While they know exactly what they want, it’s so specific that they’ll need to search far and wide just to find it. You, on the other hand, are much more vague and undecided about what you’re looking for. That means you need to try many different things in order to figure it out. There are loads of fish in the sea, and while you may think you’ll know you’ve found the “right one” when you pull it out of the net, you actually probably won’t realize that until you’ve tried a dozen more. Keep tasting. Somewhere down the line when you miss a certain flavor, you’ll know it’s time to go back and get more.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

If you rode your bike across America, chances are you’d arrive on the opposite coast noticeably thinner than when you began. However, you could, if you only ate at greasy truck stop restaurants (and carefully selected the fattiest meals), end up more overweight at the finish line than you were at the start. This is almost like what you’re doing. Your intentions are good, and would succeed, if you weren’t so busy (consciously or unconsciously) thwarting them with many of your other actions. Get all your impulses in order. Go with your excellent plan, and don’t sabotage it—what, after all, is the point?

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

I’m a big fan of having and eating cake at the same time, but sometimes that’s just logistically not possible. Imagine a shady, tree-lined yard, perfect for barbecues and a cool haven from the summer sun. It’s also a crappy place to have a garden—which would require you to chop down all those shade-producing trees so your vegetables can get enough sunshine to grow. This is one of those situations; if you want your garden to grow, you simply need to make sure it gets enough of what it needs—which means cutting some other things (you probably enjoy) out of your life.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Although it’s perfectly possible for you to evolve to be direct and clear, Pisces do unfortunately have a tendency towards passive-aggression. Since you’re loathe to engage in conflict, you’re more likely to express yourself or advance your agenda in ways that are too subtle, devious, or tricky for others to really counter. That’s frequently worked for you so far, which is why it’ll be hard to break the habit of being so subtly manipulative. Still, being more open and direct is what you should be aiming for, especially this week, when being passive-aggressive will only lead to exactly the kind of conflict you’re trying to avoid.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Be in charge of your own evolution. The trap you Rams can fall into is getting involved with people who don’t really appreciate just how wonderful you are. They require you to change in ways that suit them. Being the eager and enthusiastic person you are, you’ll usually attempt to rise to the challenge, and ultimately make yourself miserable by trying to be things you’re just not cut out to be. Screw that. Everyone needs to evolve and become more and better versions of themselves. But you’ll do that best while supported and adored by people who love you just as you are. Find them.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

There’s a reason you’re called the Bull. Once you get something in your head, you’re obsessively persistent. That’ll get you results much of the time, but in some cases, it’s better to take a break and approach something with a fresh perspective and some new energy, because you’re just stubbornly banging your head into an immovable obstacle. This is one of those times. Chill out! I don’t know how to get that concept into your thick skull, but it’s important—if you don’t you could keep on this track forever; since it leads exactly nowhere, that’s hardly a happy ending. Take a break. When you can think of a completely new direction you’d be happy heading in, resume your journey.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Being involved with any of the “dual” signs (Libra and Pisces are the other two) is tricky at best, but you’re so hard to pin down that it makes life with you both exciting and extremely frustrating for those who love you. In many cases, it’s like trying to forge a relationship with two different people. Being in a couple is hard enough; can you imagine how challenging your lovers find this particular ménage a trois? There’s not much you can do about your dual nature, but there are ways you can simplify things for intimate friends and lovers. This week, find and implement some of those.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Cancers suck at casual sex. In fact, it’s hard for you to have a superficial human relationship with anyone; that’s just not the way you’re wired. This, of course, has led to many painful moments for you in the past. I can’t suggest that you stop caring. That won’t work, anyway, and it’ll just make you miss out on all the wonderful times that can happen when you manage to forge a heart-to-heart connection. All I can advise is that the pain you experience from time to time comes with the territory; giving a shit is a wonderful thing, and well worth the suffering that comes with.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

I advised Sagittarians to cast a wide net, simply because they don’t know what they’re really looking for, and will need a large sample in order to figure it out. You, too, need to use the biggest net you can find, for quite the opposite reason: you know exactly what you want. The problem is, it’s so specific that you’ll need to search for a long time and in many places in order to find it. Keep looking. What you need to know as you seek is that while you have some very set ideas in your head, the person who’ll actually fulfill the brief is bound to be surprising in several dramatic ways. You don’t need to give up your dream, but you do need to be open-minded enough to recognize it when it appears in a form you never expected.
