[ Coconut Wireless ] HYPER LOCAL For those wondering if Halloween in Lahaina is happening this year, the answer is: yes and no. Yes, in the sense that there will be a Keiki parade, during which the street will be closed to traffic, and after that an unknown number of costumed revelers will congregate on Front Street. No, in the sense that nobody pulled a permit, and the county isn’t stepping in to fill the void. That means cars will be driving through and there won’t be any unified organization to handle things like portable toilets, crowd control, etc. I spoke to Mahina Martin, the county’s public information officer, who said there will be a police presence, but that no special efforts have been or will be made to “publicize a non-event.” She called the 2008 incarnation—when the Cultural Resources Commission made a fuss and the event was scaled back (see contributor Jessica Armstrong’s September 2008 feature “Halloween Haters”)—a “transitional year,” and acknowledged that this year will likely be more of the same. Asked about the potential loss of visitors who came for what was once billed as the “Mardi Gras of the Pacific,” Martin said “any event that brings in thousands of [people] warrants our attention,” and said if in the future an organization wants to take the reins, the county is willing to help. But, she added, it’ll mean balancing “economic needs with historical preservation.” So: no permit was issued, the economy is in the tank, some people have raised concerns about cultural insensitivity (aka lots of halfnaked chicks). The county, clearly, has plenty of excuses. But this fence-straddling isn’t a solution. There used to be a big event; now, the organizational backbone of that event has eroded. But people will still show up, and merchants still count on the revenue. This is a moment when leadership is needed, and, as is too often the case with the Tavares Administration, when leadership is lacking…

LOCAL It’s hard to know what to make of Gov. Lingle’s abrupt decision to pull the plug on a proposed $235 million Maui jail, er, Regional Public Safety Complex. The plan had been to build the thing on a 39-acre site in Puunene, with the

goal to “alleviate overcrowding” at the Maui Community Correctional Center, according to a September report from the state Department of Public Safety (DPS). As reported by multiple sources, Lingle nixed the project after reading critical comments made by Sen. Shan Tsutsui in The Maui News. The dysfunctional relationship between the Governor and the legislature is well documented, but this is a new low. Tsutsui wasn’t the only one criticizing the prison—numerous other officials and community members have expressed concern about size, cost and location—but really, that’s not the point. For the Governor to read a couple quotes in the local daily and do a complete aboutface after spending millions of dollars on planning (the exact figure is unclear; multiple calls to the DPS went unreturned) is borderline hysterical (and not in the “ha ha” sense)… Whether, and when, a soldier has the right to disobey orders is a loaded question. It was raised in 2006 when Oahuborn First Lt. Ehren Watada refused to fight in Iraq, arguing he’d be participating in war crimes. Later, defending his actions, Watada made less-than-reverent statements about President Bush that were considered “conduct unbecoming an officer.” The Army tried to court-martial him, but after that fizzled in a mistrial they granted Watada’s discharge request earlier this week “for the good of the service,” according to a military spokesman quoted in the Los Angeles Times. Predictably, Watada is being branded a hero by some and a traitor by others. Partisan platitudes aside, as our Middle Eastern military engagements drag on—and as we continue to ask young men and women to risk their lives in an open-ended global struggle against an abstract noun (but very real guns and bombs)—it’ll be interesting to see what if any effect Watada’s case has on the decisions of other service members… This week brought the inevitable news that Gay & Robinson will end sugar cane processing operations on Kauai at the end of the month, leaving Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar’s Puunene Mill as the last of a dying breed in Hawaii. Gay & Robinson has turned a portion of its land over to

Dow AgroSciences, a move Gov. Lingle gushed “will help create job opportunities for Kauai residents and help create a more secure future for the island and our entire state.” It’s true that some jettisoned Gay & Robinson employees have found work at Dow. It’s also true that Dow is among the worst corporate polluters in the world and the company that gave us, among other chemical marvels, Agent Orange. So, you know, one of those trade-offs… Heads-up tobacco users: On September 30, the state tax on tobacco products other than cigarettes and cigars was raised from 40 to 70 percent of the wholesale price, while the tax on cigars jumped to 50 percent. The bill in question—HB895—also categorizes “little cigars” (any cigar with a diameter smaller than .467 inches) as cigarettes and taxes them accordingly. As justification, the introductory section lays out all the nasty chemicals contained in “smokeless” tobacco (though the definition also applies to loose tobacco that can be rolled up and smoked) and all the deaths those chemicals cause. No argument there, but really—they keep hiking taxes on these addictive substances, and somehow people keep finding the money to buy them. A less paternalistic— and less disingenuous—approach would be to admit the goal is to pour cash into the general fund, and that luxury items are (rightly) the first target…

t’s sadly fitting that the nene is both Hawaii’s official state bird and an endangered species. Before the arrival of Captain James Cook in 1778, there were more than 20,000 of the wild geese scattered across the islands. By the middle of the 20th century, that number had plummeted to less than 30. Supervised breeding in the islands and abroad have brought the population back from the brink, and officials now estimate there are almost 2,000 nene statewide. But threats to the bird have not disappeared. If anything, they’ve intensified, as population growth and development encroach on the nene’s habitat. Human-introduced predators—including mongooses, dogs and cats—also pose a danger, as do non-native plants, which can choke out the flora the geese rely on for sustenance. According to

Though it’s now a distinct species, biologists have traced the nene’s beginnings back to a group of Canada geese that inhabited the Hawaiian Islands hundreds of thousands of years ago. Those birds were precursors to several species of Hawaiian geese, with the nene being “the only surviving member” according to findings published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

how rapidly isolated populations can be exterminated by human activities.” Which brings us back to present day, where the struggle to preserve a still-fragile bird—one that has come to symbolize both the uniqueness and fragility of Hawaii—goes on.

s with many other things in life, we tend to take water for granted. Yet water is amazing, and deserving of our great respect and stewardship. An upcoming march in support of restoring in-stream flows seeks to remind us of the importance of water not just to ourselves, but to all life. James Michener’s epic novel Hawaii begins with some 70 pages devoted to the geomorphic origins of the islands, describing the immense volcanic landforms rising from the ocean depths over millions of years. Any discussion of water in the Hawaiian Islands merits at least a passing recognition of its elemental force in fashioning the land, nourishing all beings and life forms that arrived here and providing the foundation for Hawaiian culture. With passing eons, water pounded the shores, creating sandy beaches, and stormed down from above, sculpting lava landscapes into jutting cliffs towering over boulder-filled valley streams. Seeds arrived by wave, wind or wing and, kissed by the rain showers, came to life. With the arrival of canoevoyaging Polynesians, villages sprung up alongside fertile valleys, where abundant fresh water could be diverted to lo‘i kalo, to cultivate the Hawaiian staple food and most revered crop, taro. Water flowing through the taro fields trickled back into the stream, providing a habitat for fish, crustaceans and limpets and allowing their natural spawning cycles to carry their eggs and larvae to the ocean, and back again to the streams. In ‘olelo Hawai‘i, wai is fresh water, while waiwai translates to wealth. The modern Central Maui communities built around the lifegiving streams all bear Hawaiian place names with reference to the waters: Waikapu, Wailuku, Waiehu and Waihe‘e. These same waters are now the source of heated debate, as traditional uses and rights converge with century-old plantation diversions and more recent demand for increasing

Restricting the flow. Waikapu, ‘Iao, Waiehu and Waihe‘e. The state Water Commission will hear final arguments on October 15 in a 9am meeting at ‘Iao Congregational Church, part of a five-year process that began with the 2004 filing of a petition to restore stream flows and to protect native stream life, Hawaiian traditional practices and other uses. The petition came at a time when one of the major landowners in the area, Wailuku Agribusiness, was selling large parcels of land that once was part of Wailuku Sugar’s plantings. The petitioning parties maintained that Wailuku Agribusiness—which ceased sugar production in the 1980s in favor of macadamia nut trees, only to abandon that operation by the late ’90s—had greatly

reduced need from its original irrigation diversions. As Earthjustice attorney Kapua Sproat put it: “The water not being used should be left in the stream” where it would help recharge diminishing underwater aquifers, restore stream biota and revitalize the near-shore ocean ecosystems. Wailuku Agribusiness (whose name has now been changed to Wailuku Water Company) refuted claims of water wasting. Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar, one of Wailuku Water’s recipients, appeared before the commission to argue about the quantities needed to irrigate its central Maui cane fields. In March 2008, the Commission on Water Resource Management agreed to take over management of four major streams in central Maui. That shift meant that anyone diverting water or planning to divert water from those streams now had to apply for a permit. In April, Hearings Officer Lawrence Miike issued his decision, recommending that about half the diverted stream flows be restored—totaling an average of 34.5 million gallons a day. “If the full Commission approves this recommendation,” says an Earthjustice press release, “Na Wai ‘Eha streams would again flow mauka-to-makai and come back to life.” After the April recommendations, Earthjustice posted the following: “The proposed decision validates what we’ve known all along, that HC&S has viable alternatives to destroying these streams, but prefers to use stream water because it is ‘cheap’ or ‘free,’” said Irene Bowie, Executive Director of Maui Tomorrow. “There is nothing cheap or free about the priceless natural and cultural value of streams flowing mauka to makai (from the mountains to the sea), and private companies aren’t entitled to maximize their profits off of public water. “The ongoing Na Wai ‘Eha case parallels the landmark Waiahole Ditch case on Oahu—a battle over the future of water and land use in Hawai‘i that resulted in the path-breaking decision of the Hawaii Supreme Court in 2000 recognizing water resources as a public trust and reaffirming the state’s trust responsibilities to protect public instream uses.” Like the Waiahole case, the Na Wai ‘Eha case involves [cont. pg. 8]

“Nobody remembers serving her,” a representative from Lulu’s Lahaina told the LC Adjudication Board at the September 3 hearing. The “her” in question was a 56-year-old woman who reportedly entered the bar around midnight on November 22, 2008. According to a statement later given to police, the woman had not visited any other bars. While at Lulu’s, she supposedly ordered two rum and Cokes followed by a Long Island ice tea, though she paid cash so there was no paper trail. At around 1:50am, the woman exited Lulu’s and headed for her car. Officers at the scene who observed her stumbling say they warned her not to drive but that she got into her car anyway, first attempting to enter through the passengerside door. As soon as the woman started to back out of her parking space, the cops confronted her. She was given a breath test and blew a 0.21, nearly three times the legal limit. Initially, Lulu’s was hit with three related counts: serving to an already intoxicated individual; failing “to exercise due care” in determining whether an individual was intoxicated; and permitting an intoxicated individual to remain on the premises. By the time the hearing rolled around, the charges had been pared down to one count, to which Lulu’s plead no contest. A lawyer speaking on behalf of the company reiterated that none of the servers recalled the woman (it was a busy night, shortly after the venue opened), but acknowledged that it’s “impossible to prove the negative.” The board deliberated and slapped Lulu’s with a $2,000 fine, making the woman an expensive, if unmemorable, patron. - Jacob Shafer

break around the holidays. The extended layoff period is attributed to an ongoing drought, meaning fewer acres have been planted and crops in the field take longer to age. A&B is facing even greater losses in its agricultural sector than the $13.2 million recorded in the first half of this year, already surpassing the $13 million in losses they incurred in 2008. While the long-term prospect of 32,000 acres in sugar cane production is uncertain, some residents are grateful for

It is often said that water flows uphill toward money. Final decisions by the state Water Commission may soon indicate to what extent that adage is true. “Wailuku Water Company’s attempted water profiteering is an affront to the principle, enshrined in the Hawaii Constitution and affirmed by the Hawaii Supreme Court, that water is a public trust resource that belongs to all,” said Earthjustice attorney Isaac Moriwake. “We hope that the Commission will follow through on its trust obligations to ensure that justice, and the waters of Na Wai ‘Eha, will flow freely for the benefit of all the people of Hawaii.”

A

lexander & Baldwin, HC&S’s parent company, is concerned that setting interim in-stream flow standards for Na Wai ‘Eha “has the potential to hurt Hawaii’s communities and agricultural industry,” according to an article in the April/May issue of Po‘okela, their company newsletter. They maintain that the IIFS recommendations “are so high that they would cut by one-half the amount of West Maui stream water currently available to HC&S (for 6,000 acres of cane in the Maalaea/Wailuku area).” Employees were urged to support the company’s position through calls, letters and e-mails to officials, and through testimony at upcoming public meetings. “A&B is committed to doing everything we can to keep HC&S in operation,” said Chris Benjamin, A&B’s chief financial officer and the recently appointed general manager of HC&S. Last week, Benjamin announced that sugar cane harvesting would soon be shut down for yearly factory maintenance, though for an expected five months—much longer than the usual off-season

the five-month cane-burning hiatus. To damper the enthusiasm: in lieu of available bagasse (cane fiber), plantation obligations to generate electricity to Maui Electric Company will now be met by burning increasing amounts of imported coal. Earlier this year, A&B completed a draft EIS for a proposed 9-million gallon water treatment plant at Waiale, on the outskirts of Wailuku near the prison. The project comes with an estimated $30 million price-tag, cost-shared with the County. A&B would then receive half of the output—some 4.5 million gallons— of potable water for urban uses. A&B development plans that would utilize the proposed water allocation include the 179acre expansion of the Kahului Business Park, a 600-unit housing project in North Kihei and an 800-acre project district in the Waiko Road area. Quoted in The Maui News last March, Earthjustice attorney Isaac Moriwake was critical of the timing of A&B’s environmental document release. “We think it’s entirely premature for A&B to be making big plans for Na Wai ‘Eha without knowing how much flow must be returned to the streams,” Moriwake said. “We also think it speaks volumes about HC&S’s claims that it needs all the water for sugar. As usual, A&B is trying to have its cake and eat it too.” At least Na Wai ‘Eha supporters will be heading downhill on Friday, even if stream waters are not. The once mighty ‘Iao Stream is now a mere trickle in a concrete channel, as it’s almost entirely diverted near Kepaniwai Park in ‘Iao Valley. It is often said, presumably in jest, that water flows uphill toward money. Final decisions by the state Water Commission may soon indicate to what extent that adage is true.

[ News of the Weird ] BREAST INTENTIONS A male Swedish college student, Ragnar Bengtsson, 26, has begun pumping his breasts at three-hour intervals in a 90-day experiment to see if he can produce milk. If he succeeds, he said, it could prove “very important for men’s ability to get much closer to their children at an early stage.” A professor of endocrinology told the daily Aftonbladet that male lactation without hormone treatment might produce “a drop or two,” but suggested that men instead consider offering their breasts to babies as a matter of comfort and warmth, rather than as food. Bengtsson, who will report regularly on his progress via Stockholm’s TV8 channel and the station’s Web site, acknowledged that his timetable would sometimes require that he pump during classes.

SORRY EXCUSES (1) Police in Deer Lake, Newfoundland, decided in August not to press charges against three boys whom they had previously believed had harassed a young moose so badly that it had to be put down. A final piece of evidence against prosecution came from the father of one of the boys, who vouched that the three could not have committed such a crime since they had been busy at the time, vandalizing a nearby church (2) Alexander Kabelis, 31, was arrested for slashing tires on almost 50 vehicles in Boulder, Colo., in May, but offered several explanations, including being overwhelmed by radiation from the nearby Rocky Flats nuclear facility and having been forced by his mother to wear braces on his teeth as a child.

POOL BREAKERS In July, flat-bed truck driver Nicholas Sparks, 25, hauling two motorcycles and towing two trucks, learned that he could not also

handle talking on one cell phone while texting on another and accidentally crashed into a house in Lockport, N.Y., ending up with his truck and part of his cargo submerged. And in Mesa, Ariz., in June, a 27-year-old man who had rigged a short sword to his steering wheel (aimed at his chest) and driven into a brick wall in an effort to kill himself, failed in the attempt when an airbag inflated, causing him to lose control of the car, swerve into a nearby home and, yes, plunge into the pool.

CHICKEN FIGHTING, MOVE OVER Several state law enforcement agencies raided a home in Shelton, Conn., in July, breaking up an alleged canary-fighting operation. A neighbor called the raid “crazy,” adding, “I can’t picture little canaries with razor blades taped to their feet.”

PEN OF DEBAUCHERY

Three physicians, reporting in The Canadian Journal of Urology in July, described how they handled an emergency-room patient who arrived with a ballpoint pen in his urethra. The man, 57, had assumed that the insertion would be pleasurable, and when it wasn’t, thought initially that maybe the pen was not in far enough. After pushing further, to even greater discomfort, he thought that if he pushed it all the way through, it would exit in his rectum, where he could remove it more easily. (Actually, they’re not connected.) Doctors removed the pen with the same procedure used to remove kidney stones.

To Keola Donaghy for preserving the Hawaiian language, with a 21st century twist. Donaghy, a professor of Hawaiian studies at UH Hilo, dedicated more than 100 hours to translating Google search terms into Hawaiian, part of the search engine’s “Google in Your Language” program, and received an Innovation Award from the governor.

To Safeway for not staffing enough checkers. While most of its on-island rivals keep things flowing, even in this slow economy the grocery giant is notorious for empty, cordoned-off registers and long lines snaking into the aisles. (This is something we’ve gotten numerous reader complaints about, to add to our own experience.) Perhaps the hardest hit are the checkers themselves, who are overworked and forced to unfairly endure the wrath of impatient customers.

To Hard Rock Cafe for aiding in the fight against breast cancer. This year marks the 10th anniversary of Hard Rock’s “Pinktober” benefit, held in conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This year, the Lahaina location will host reggae collective Natural Vibrations and auction off a signed Ziggy Marley guitar on October 21, with proceeds going to the Pacific Cancer Foundation. Feelings about corporate restaurant chains aside, anyone who’s lost a loved one to breast cancer (or survived it themselves) will understand the importance of this effort.

EH BRAH!

[ Editor’s Inbox ] Mahalo plenty for writing this article [“Keiki Care,” September 24]. Misinformation has spread rampantly and FOX’s story was not fair, balanced or accurate. Rollover from the HMSA Children’s Plan was a one-time event when Keiki Care started. After that most kids were required to be uninsured at least six consecutive months. The plan had limited benefits and out-of-pocket expense, which also discouraged parents from dropping private health insurance. Outreach was for the small, targeted “gap group” kids who were ineligible for Med-QUEST’s programs, and approximately 40 were enrolling per month. For those who don’t philosophically believe we should cover all kids with health insurance the same as we cover all seniors through Medicare, think about where your tax dollars should be wisely spent: inexpensive children’s health insurance programs or bailing out hospitals for uncompensated health care. Keiki Care was a successful publicprivate partnership organized and implemented by state and community partners. Go 4 Health, posted at mauitime.com

We are not concerned about “scientific” evidence in regards to GMO kalo. The issue is respect for Hawaiian culture and the ancestral link between kalo and our people. “Modern agricultural practices” such as the continued theft of public trust waters, stream diversion, petroleum-based fertilizer and pesticide use are the reasons why we don’t have healthy and plentiful kalo.

SUCCESS STORY

EXPANDING WASTE LINE First, I always enjoy reading Coconut Wireless; lots of good thoughts and sometimes logical solutions. But must you be a typical joiner and ask for the Governor and the legislature to raise taxes as the solution? Perhaps it is time to tighten up the belt and stop the horrible waste that is inherent in Hawaii’s government budget. The deplorable teacher furlough could have been avoided if the Department of Education was dissolved except for statewide issues and we were allowed to have real local schools boards. The layoff of the ag inspectors is a poor game that the Governor and the legislature are playing. What a disgrace for all of us. L. David Taylor, Kahului

E

very year since 1976, California-based Project Censored has spotlighted the most significant news stories that were largely ignored or misrepresented by the mainstream press. Now the group is expanding its mission—to promote alternative news sources. The term “censored” doesn’t mean that some government agent stood over newsrooms with a rubber stamp and forbade the publication of the news—or even that the information was completely out of the public eye. The stories Project Censored highlights may have run in one or two news outlets, but didn’t get the type of attention they deserved. Project Censored doesn’t just expose gaping holes in the news brought to you by the likes of Fox, CNN, or USA Today—it also shines a light on less prominent, but more incisive alternativemedia sources serving up in-depth investigations and watchdog reports. Benjamin Frymer, a sociology professor at Sonoma State University who is taking over as director of Project Censored, says he believes the time is ripe for new sources of information. “The actual amount of time that people spend reading online is increasing,” Frymer points out. “It’s not as if people are just cynically rejecting media—they’re reaching out for alternative sources.” 1. CONGRESS SELLS OUT TO WEVERYONE ON WALL STREET The total tab for the Wall Street bailout, including money spent and promised by the United States government, works out to an estimated $42,000 for every man, woman and child, according to American Casino, a documentary about sub-prime lending and the financial meltdown. The predatory lending free-forall, the emergency pumping of taxpayer dollars to prop up mega-banks and the lavish bonuses handed out to Wall Street executives in the aftermath are all issues that have dominated news headlines. But another twist in the story has received scant attention from the mainstream news media: the unsettling combination of lax oversight from national politicians with high-dollar campaign contributions from financial players. In the 10-year period

OCTOBER 1, 2009

beginning in 1998, the financial sector spent $1.7 billion on federal campaign contributions, and another $3.4 billion on lobbyists. Since 2001, eight of the most troubled firms have donated $64.2 million to congressional candidates, presidential candidates and the Republican and Democratic parties. Wall Street’s spending spree on political contributions coincided with a weakening of federal banking regulations, which in turn created a recipe for the astronomical financial disaster that sent the global economy reeling. Sources: “Lax Oversight? Maybe $64 Million to DC Pols Explains It,” Greg Gordon, Truthout. org and McClatchey Newspapers, October 2, 2008; “Congressmen Hear from TARP Recipients Who Funded Their Campaigns,” Lindsay Renick Mayer, Capitol Eye, February 10, 2009; “The Big Takeover,” Matt Taibbi, Rolling Stone, March 2009. 2. DE FACTO SEGREGATION DEEPENING IN PUBLIC EDUCATION Latinos and African Americans attend more segregated public schools today than they have for four decades, Professor Gary Orfield notes in “Reviving the Goal of an Integrated Society: A 21st Century Challenge,” a study conducted by the Civil Rights Project of the University of California Los Angeles. Orfield’s report used federal data to highlight deepening segregation in public education by race and poverty. About 44 percent of students in the nation’s public school system are people of color, and this group will soon make up the majority of the population in the U.S. Yet this racial diversity often isn’t reflected from school to school. Instead, two out of every five African American and Latino youth attend schools that Orfield characterizes as “intensely segregated”—comprised of 90 to 100 percent people of color. Schools that are segregated by race and poverty tend to have much higher dropout rates, higher teacher turnover and greater exposure to crime and gangs, placing students at a major disadvantage in society. The most severe segregation is in Western states, including California. Fifty-five years after the Supreme Court’s Brown vs. Board of Education ruling, Orfield wrote, “Segregation is fast

SOMALI PIRATES: THE UNTOLD STORY Somali pirates off the Horn of Africa were like gold for mainstream news outlets this past year. Stories describing surprise attacks on shipping vessels, daring rescues and cadres of ragtag bandits extracting multimillion-dollar ransoms were all over the airwaves and front pages. Even as the pirates’ exploits around the Gulf of Aden captured the world’s attention, however, very little ink was devoted to factors that made the Somalis desperate enough to resort to piracy: the dumping of nuclear waste and rampant over-fishing in their coastal waters. In the early 1990s, when the government of Somalia collapsed, foreign interests began swooping into unguarded coastal waters to trawl for food—and venturing into unprotected Somali territories to cheaply dispose of nuclear waste. Those activities continued with impunity for years. The ramifications of toxic dumping hit full force with the 2005 tsunami, when leaking barrels were washed ashore, sickening hundreds and causing birth defects in newborn infants. The uncontrolled fishing harvests, meanwhile, damaged the economic livelihoods of Somali fishermen and eroded the country’s supply of a primary food source. That’s when the piracy started. “Did we expect starving Somalians to stand passively on their beaches, paddling in our nuclear waste, and watch us snatch their fish to eat in restaurants in London and Paris and Rome?” asked journalist Johann Hari in a Huffington Post article. “We didn’t act on those crimes—but when some of the fishermen responded by disrupting the transit-corridor for 20 percent of the world’s oil supply, we begin to shriek about ‘evil.’” Sources: “Toxic waste behind Somali piracy,” Najad Abdullahi, Al Jazeera English, October

4. NORTH CAROLINA’S BRYSONLEF NUCLEAR NIGHTMARE The Shearon Harris nuclear plant in North Carolina’s Wake County isn’t just a power generating station. The Progress Energy plant, located in a backwoods area, bears the distinction of housing the largest radioactive-waste storage pools in the country. Spent fuel rods from two other nuclear plants are transported there by rail, then stored beneath circulating cold water to prevent the radioactive waste from heating. The hidden danger, according to investigative reporter Jeffery St. Clair, is the looming threat of a pool fire. Citing a study by Brookhaven National Laboratory, St. Clair highlighted in CounterPunch the catastrophe that could ensue if a pool were to ignite. A possible 140,000 people could wind up with cancer. Contamination could stretch for thousands of square miles. And damages could reach an estimated $500 billion. “Spent fuel recently discharged from a reactor could heat up relatively rapidly and catch fire,” Robert Alvarez, a former Department of Energy advisor and Senior Scholar at the Institute for Policy Studies noted in a study about safety issues surrounding nuclear waste pools. “The fire could well spread to older fuel. The long-term contamination consequences of such an event could be significantly worse than Chernobyl.” Shearon Harris’ track record is pocked with problems requiring temporary shutdowns of the plant and malfunctions of the facility’s emergency-warning system. When a study was sent to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission highlighting the safety risks and recommending technological fixes to address the problem, St. Clair noted, a pro-nuclear commissioner successfully persuaded the agency to dismiss the concerns.

5. U.S. FAILS TO PROTECT CONSUMERS AGAINST TOXICS Two years ago, the European Union enacted a bold new environmental policy requiring close scrutiny and restriction of toxic chemicals used in everyday products. Invisible perils such as lead in lipstick, endocrine disruptors in baby toys and mercury in electronics can threaten human health. The story that’s gone unreported by mainstream American news media, however, is how this game-changing legislation might impact the U.S., where chemical corporations use lobbying muscle to ensure comparatively lax oversight of toxic substances. As global markets shift to favor safer consumer products, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is lagging far behind in its own scrutiny of insidious chemicals. As investigative journalist Mark Schapiro pointed out in Exposed: The Toxic Chemistry of Everyday Products and What’s at Stake for American Power, the EPA’s tendency to behave as if it were beholden to big business could backfire in this case, placing U.S. companies at a competitive disadvantage because products manufactured here will be regarded with increasing distrust. Economics aside, the implications of loose restrictions on toxic products are chilling: just onethird of the 267 chemicals on the EU’s watch list have ever been tested by the EPA, and only two are regulated under federal law. Meanwhile, researchers at University of California Berkeley estimate that 42 billion pounds of chemicals enter American commerce daily, and only a fraction of them have ever undergone risk assessments. Sources: “European Chemical Clampdown Reaches Across Atlantic,” David Biello, Scientific American, September 30, 2008; “How Europe’s New Chemical Rules Affect US,” Environmental Defense Fund, September 30, 2008; “US Lags Behind Europe in Regulating Toxicity of Everyday Products,” Mark Schapiro, Democracy Now! February 24, 2009 6. AS ECONOMY SHRINKS, D.C. LOBBYING GROWS In 2008, as the economy tumbled and unemployment soared, Washington lobbyists working for special interests were paid $3.2 billion—more than any other year on record. According to the Center for Responsive Politics, special interests spent a collective $32,523 per legislator, per day, for every day Congress was in session. One event that triggered the lobbying boom, according to CRP director Sheila Krumholz, was the federal bailout. With the U.S. government shelling out billions in stimulus money, industries wanted to ensure they’d get a piece of the pie. The list of highest-ranking spenders on D.C. lobbying reads like a roster of some of the most powerful interests nationwide. Topping the list was the health sector, which spent $478.5 million lobbying Congress last year. A very close runnerup was the finance, insurance and realestate sector, spending $453.5 million. Pharmaceutical companies plunked down $230 million, electric utilities spent $156.7 million and oil and gas

companies paid lobbyists $133.2 million. Source: “Washington Lobbying Grew to $3.2 Billion Last Year, Despite Economy,” Center for Responsive Politics, Open Secrets.org 7. OBAMA’S CONTROVERSIAL DEFENSE & CONGRE APPOINTEES President Barack Obama’s appointments to the U.S. Department of Defense have raised serious questions among critics who’ve studied their track records. Although the news media haven’t paid much attention, the defense appointees bring to the administration controversial histories and conflicts of interest due to close ties to defense contractors.

Obama’s decision to retain Robert Gates, Secretary of Defense under President George W. Bush, marks the first time in history that a president has opted to keep a defense secretary of an outgoing opposing party in power. Gates, a former CIA director, has faced criticism for allegedly spinning intelligence reports for political means. In Failure of Intelligence: The Decline and Fall of the CIA, author and former CIA analyst Melvin Goodman described him as “the chief action officer for the Reagan administration’s drive to tailor intelligence reporting to White House political desires.” Gates also came under scrutiny for questions surrounding whether he misled Congress during the Iran-Contra scandal in the mid-1980s, and was accused of withholding information from intelligence committees when the U.S. provided military aid to Saddam Hussein during the Iran-Iraq war. Critics are also uneasy about the appointment of Deputy Defense Secretary William Lynn, who formerly served as a senior vice president at defense giant Raytheon and was a registered lobbyist for the company until July 2008. Lynn, who previously served as Pentagon Comptroller under the Clinton Administration, came under fire during his confirmation hearing due to “questionable accounting practices.” The defense department flunked multiple audits under Lynn’s leadership, because it was unable to properly account for $3.4 trillion in financial transactions made over the course of several years. Sources: “The Danger of Keeping Robert Gates,” Robert Parry, ConsortiumNews. com, November 13, 2008; “Obama’s Defense Department Appointees- The 3.4 Trillion Dollar Question,” Andrew Hughes, Global Research, February 13, 2009; “Obama Nominee Admiral Dennis Blair Aided perpetrators of 1999 church Killings in East Timor,” Allan Nairn, Democracy Now! January 7, 2009; “Ties to Chevron, Boeing Raise Concern on Possible NSA Pick,” Roxana Tiron, The Hill, November 24, 2008

8. BIG BUSINESS CHEATS THE IRS The Cayman Islands and Bermuda are magnets for financial giants such as Bank of America, Citigroup, American International Group and eleven other beneficiaries of the federal government’s 2008 Wall Street bailout. It’s not the balmy weather that inspires some of America’s wealthiest companies to open up operations in the Caribbean archipelago: the offshore oases provide safe harbors to stash cash out of the reach of Uncle Sam. According to a 2008 report by the Government Accountability Office—which was largely ignored by the news media—83

of the top publicly held U.S. companies, including some receiving substantial portions of federal bailout dollars, have operations in tax havens that allow them to avoid paying their fair share to the Internal Revenue Service. The report also spotlighted the activities of Union Bank of Switzerland (UBS), which has helped wealthy Americans cheat the IRS out of billions in recent years. In December 2008, banking giant Goldman Sachs reported its first-ever quarterly loss, then followed up with a statement that its tax rate would drop from 34.1 percent to 1 percent, citing “changes in geographic earnings mix” as the reason. The difference: instead of paying $6 billion in total worldwide taxes as it did in 2007, Goldman Sachs would pay a total of $14 million in 2008. In the same year, it received $10 billion and debt guarantees from the U.S. government. Sources: “Goldman Sachs’s Tax Rate Drops to 1% or $14 Million,” Christine Harper, Bloomberg, December 16, 2008; “Gimme Shelter: Tax Evasion and the Obama Administration,” Thomas B. Edsall, The Huffington Post, February 23, 2009 9. U.S. CONNECTED TO WHITE PHOSPHOROUS STRIKES IN GAZA In mid-January, as part of a military campaign, the Israeli Defense Forces fired several shells that hit the headquarters of a United Nations relief agency in Gaza City, destroying provisions for basic aid such as food and medicine. The shells contained white phosphorous, a smoke-producing, spontaneously flammable agent that is designed to obscure battle territory but can also ignite buildings or cause grotesque burns if it touches the skin. In the aftermath of the attacks, Human Rights Watch volunteers found spent white phosphorous shells on city streets, apartment roofs, residential courtyards and at a UN school in Gaza. Human Rights Watch says that IDF’s use of white phosphorous violated international law, which prohibits deliberate, indiscriminate or disproportionate attacks that result in civilian casualties. After gathering

evidence, the international organization issued a report condemning the repeated firing of white phosphorus shells over densely populated areas of Gaza as a war crime. Amnesty International, another human-rights organization, followed suit by calling upon the United States to suspend military aid to Israel—to no avail. The U.S. was a primary source of funding and weaponry for Israel’s military campaign. Washington provided F-16 fighter planes, Apache helicopters, tactical missiles and a wide array of munitions, including white phosphorus. Sources: “White Phosphorus Use Evidence of War CrimesReport: Rain of Fire: Israel’s Unlawful Use of White Phosphorus in Gaza,” Fred Abrahams, Human Rights Watch, March 25, 2009; “Suspend Military Aid to Israel, Amnesty Urges Obama after Detailing US Weapons Used in Gaza,” Rory McCarthy, Guardian/UK, February 23, 2009; “US Weaponry Facilitates Killings in Gaza,” Thalif Deen, Inter Press Service, January 8, 2009; “US military re-supplying Israel with ammunition through Greece,” Saed Bannoura, International Middle East Media Center News, January 8, 2009  10. ECUADOR SAYS IT WON’T PAY ILLEGITIMATE DEBT When President Rafael Correa announced that Ecuador would default on its foreign debt last December, he didn’t say it was because the Latin American country was unable to pay. Rather, he framed it as a moral stand: “As president, I couldn’t allow us to keep paying a debt that was obviously immoral and illegitimate,” Correa told an international news agency. The news was mainly reported in financial publications, and the stories tended to quote harsh critics who characterized Correa as an extreme leftist with ties to Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. But there’s much more to the story. The announcement came in the wake of an exhaustive audit of Ecuador’s debt, conducted under Correa’s direction by a newly created debt audit commission. The unprecedented audit documented hundreds of allegations of irregularity and illegality in the decades of debt collection from international lenders. Although Ecuador had made payments exceeding the value of the principal since the time it initially took out loans in the 1970s, its foreign debt had nonetheless swelled to levels three times as high due to extraordinarily high interest rates. With a huge percentage of the country’s financial resources devoted to paying the debt, little was leftover to combat poverty. Ecuador eventually agreed to a restructuring of its debt at about 35 cents on the dollar, but the move nonetheless served to expose deficiencies in the World Bank system, which provides little recourse for countries to resolve disputes over potentially illegitimate debt.

Beyond the ale Kahului sports bar is about more than beer and grinds—but those are good, too

A

reader tip on the Maui Time voicemail said there was stuff going down at the Kahului Ale House that I needed to check out. It sounded sincere so I headed to the popular Central Maui sports bar to see what was up. The Ale House is a family owned and operated business and I was greeted inside by Jerome Metcalf, the third Metcalf brother I’ve have had the pleasure to meet. Having recently relocated to Maui to join other brothers Scott and Chad, Jerome is known as “Tiger.” Taking me on a tour of the kitchen and showing me recent renovations including refurbished tables and a new roof, Tiger assured me the Metcalf family is working hard to make this the place to be for the Maui ohana. Getting down to business for me included ordering a big lunch, and my server, Shyann, was on the ball. I’m a sucker for chips and dip so we started with the baked artichoke dip served with corn chips, an excellent pupu. We moved on to the fried calamari served with sweet chili dipping sauce—crispy and tender blended just right and a surprisingly big hit with my one-year-old nephew. We shared an ahi wrap with a Caesar salad (other side options include fries and coleslaw).

Kahului Ale House 355 E. Kamehameha Ave., Kahului 877-9001

The ahi is expertly Cajun-seared, just slightly raw but full of fresh flavor. Lots of crisp lettuce and tomato and a spicy aioli sauce finished out the texture and flavor. More than enough for two, the portions were generous and we came home with leftovers. Good food is one thing, but something you don’t typically expect at a sports bar is a commitment to recycling, energy efficiency and bringing in organic and

locally made products. Scott Metcalf says it’s all part of long-range planning during these lean economic times—a focus on malama ‘aina, or nurturing and caring for the land and Maui. The Ale House features local produce on the menu, and they serve glutenfree products like Redbridge beer and gluten-free pizza. They carry three kinds of taro burger from Maui Taro Burger. You can also order organic wine and they carry Deschutes Brewery Green Lakes organic beer and have Maui Brewing Co. brews on tap. As if you needed another excuse to hit the bar. MTW

Puff, puff, pass An album due out on 4/20 may be the Kottonmouth King’s last

I

n California—where three initiatives have been filed with the Attorney General for the legalization of marijuana— the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) prepares to wrap its 38th annual convention, held in downtown San Francisco’s Union Square. This year’s theme: “Yes We Can-nabis.” Meanwhile and elsewhere in the Golden State, Brad “Daddy X” Xavier, frontman of Southern California’s Kottonmouth Kings—a 6-man act of proud, pro-herb proponents whose name alone (mis)spells marijuanasupporter synonymy—is on the phone with me, en route to pick up his 10-year old daughter from school. “She’s great,” says Xavier. We’re 20 or so minutes into the interview when he arrives at his destination. At a good stopping point in our discussion—about his desire for decriminalization and his viewpoints about honest, rather than “fear-based” dialogue (especially between parents and kids)—Xavier pauses for a moment and I hear the open-shut sound of car doors. “Hold on real quick…” he says. “How’s it going sweetheart?” I hear in the background, the preface to a quick, loving exchange. “Here, say ‘hi.’” “Who is it?” questions a high, petite voice. “We’re doing an interview in Hawaii right now.” “Hi!” says Xavier’s daughter, Sky Blue, sweetly—quickly followed by (with the tiniest of coaxing) an exuberant “aloha.” Earlier, Xavier had told me he and his ‘ohana recently vacationed at the Hana Ranch. “Maui is such a beautiful place. We had a great time up there.” Though Xavier has spent time here and once, “years ago” played along side Bad Religion while with his former band, the Humble Gods, this will be the first Maui show for the Kottonmouth Kings—one of only two gigs scheduled in Hawaii. This brazenly blazed band describe their sound as “psychedelic hip-hop punk rock”; many might know them from songs like “Bump” or “Bong Tokin’ Alcoholics.”

“We’re just blessed to come play music there—happy people want to have us,” says Xavier. When I ask if his family will again be accompanying him, he sounds a little disappointed. “No, not this time. My daughter is in school. So we’re just coming out, handling business. We’re in the middle of making a record right now. We’ll be able to hang out for a couple of days, but then we gotta get back and finish this album.” The album he speaks of is in addition to the LP Hidden Stash 420 that drops on October 13. It’s the fourth installment in the Hidden Stash series—this one ditching the Roman numerals for the

Stash, each album title (such as their debut, Royal Highness, or 2000’s High Society or 2002’s Rollin’ Stoned) is a blatant testament to their zeal for THC. With a diehard fanbase and a well of underground success (they were the cover boys of the November 2006 issue of High Times and were named the magazine’s “Band of the Year” in 2009, when they headlined at the 19th Annual Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam), it seems odd they’re looking to call it quits. “Well, you know, the future is always uncertain and the end is always near,” says Xavier. “You never know… it just feels like right now, I’m looking at it like it’s possibly the last Kottonmouth Kings

the label does 50-50 partnerships with the bands it signs, an untraditional, independent model that seems to have found a niche in this digital age. “[E]specially sometimes in the major label sense, the money trickles down before it hits the artist,” says Xavier. “So it’s a long food chain and the artist gets the scraps on the table. But we’re an independent label—there’s no big corporations behind us. It’s a grassroots label, and it’s powered by the people. “It’s definitely a labor of love. We have a small, dedicated group of people that work at the label, [who] really believe in it and have a lot of passion for it. Hopefully [it] will continue to grow and we’ll be able to keep the doors open, keep doing what we’re doing, and keep this dream alive.”

Kottonmouth Kings Maui gig: Thurs., Oct. 8, 8pm at Oceans Beach Bar & Grill, Kihei Web site: kottonmouthkings.com

I think I just got a contact high. aptly applied “420”—and is a two-disc set with 40 songs and a full-length DVD. “This [upcoming] one is called Long Live the Kottonmouth Kings. We’re going to release it on April 20 of 2010, and we’re pretty much looking at it like this is the last record we want to make—so we’re pulling out all the stops for it,” says Xavier. Xavier describes his house and studio up in the mountains and how they rent a cabin adjacent to his property where bandmates stay while they record. “It’s definitely been the best [bonding experience] in maybe the last five or six years,” he says. “This is the first time we’ve gone away, had a space and actually lived together [to] write and record since the early days. It’s been pretty cool going back to that.” Since 1994, the band has produced 12 major LPs; only two of which failed to crack the Billboard Top 200. Like Hidden

album… I definitely have the mindset that this is the one we want to leave the mark on. We kind of want to rest our dynasty on the album coming up here. “Obviously making records and making music is a passion of mine—something I love to do and something I’ll continue to do. I produce a lot of different bands besides the Kottonmouth Kings.” When Xavier says he “produce[s] a lot,” he means it. By my count, his label, Suburban Noize, boasts a list of acts in excess of 34. Acts that include Hed P.E., Kingspade, La Coka Nostra, Mondo Generator and Unwritten Law. And, while “the music business [is] kind of going down the tubes,” Xavier finds the label is thriving. “The music industry started to turn… so many great artists all of a sudden needed homes, and we were able to facilitate that,” he says, explaining how

Another dream they certainly won’t let die is the decriminalization of marijuana. “It’s pretty simple. It’s really a human being’s choice whether they want to act or interact with that plant,” says Xavier. “If the people’s will is to enjoy the plant, then let it grow free. Of course, if you abuse anything, it will abuse you. If you abuse alcohol, if you drink too much Coca-cola, if you eat too many processed foods, pharmaceutical drugs, whatever. “I gotta make personal choices in [my daughter’s] best interest all the time. It’s something I absolutely openly discuss with her so she understands what it is, so she understands both sides, so she understands there are laws. Hopefully, she’ll make her own [educated] choices when she’s old enough.” Speaking of his daughter, before I let him go spend time with her, I ask Xavier to describe his perfect day. There’s a touch of happy surprise in his voice when he replies: “Oh! My idea of a perfect day is waking up on Maui with my daughter. Going hiking, going swimming, eating some good, fresh fruit—just living and being in the moment, with friends, family. No stress. No worries—and good music!” Sounds like the high life to me.

FILMCRITIQUES

Holy rollers! How do you make sports movie clichés feel fresh? Hot chicks on skates

D

uring her 29-year (!) film career, Drew Barrymore has demonstrated such versatility, Hollywood survival skills and memorable work as both an actress and a producer, it’s surprising that Whip It! is her directorial debut. Barrymore produced Donnie Darko, played one of the Charlie’s Angels and Cinderella, starred in two Stephen King movies, stole scenes from an alien in E.T. and was in 50 First Dates, one of the funniest movies to ever take place in Hawaii. But she waited until she was 34 to direct her first movie and, though flawed, it shows a lot of promise. Ellen Page stars as a debutant pageant contestant who unleashes her inner wild child when she discovers and joins the girlpowered world of roller derby. That’s really it for the story, which is pure formula most of the way and ends on too tidy a note for a movie so offbeat and skillfully

I’m totally into it for the strategy. constructed. Despite its shortcomings, Barrymore’s film has a bubbly energy you don’t find in a lot of comedies, particularly by first-time directors. The key to any great comedy is in the cast, and this one has a perfectly assembled ensemble of cut-ups. Page isn’t playing another variation on the characters she embodied in Juno and Smart People—her performance here is different, vulnerable and winning. Andrew Wilson, Owen’s older brother, is a riot as the seen-it-allbefore roller derby coach; his character is introduced listening to Wilson Phillips and wearing jean shorts, a nice, typically

goofy touch. Marcia Gay Harden and Daniel Stern are terrific as Page’s working class parents; Juliette Lewis is a perfectly

humbly plays the small, thankless part of the game’s most frequently injured player. Best of all is Kristin Wiig, wonderful as the most down-to-earth player on the team; she gives parental advice that is so practical and honest, I thought I was watching a John Hughes movie. In addition to the acting, what works surprisingly well are the roller derby action sequences, which are made exciting by the fluid filming, sharp editing and skate n’ smash prowess of the actresses, who look like they’re really slamming into one another. The screenplay and the book it’s based on were written by Shauna Cross, who presents a fictionalized take on her life, which is why the movie feels so authentic and fresh even when the story recycles every available sports movie cliché. Many women may exit the theater wondering where they can buy gnarly skating gear and suit up for some rollerthrashin’. Who could blame them? The sport looks like a hell of a lot of fun.

FILMCAPSULES Maui Film Festival Candlelight Cinema Paper Heart - PG-13 - Comedy Starring Charlyne Yi, this indie-comedy follows Yi on her journey across the U.S. to make a documentary about love, with Michael Cera as the apple of her eye. A tale as old as time with a twist, this sureto-be-sweet film won the 2009 Maui Film Festival Audience Award for Best Comedy. 89 min.

New This Week Capitalism: a Love Story - R - Documentary - Michael Moore’s latest installment comes on the 20th anniversary of his groundbreaking Roger & Me. From the epicenters of financial institutions and big business to Washington D.C., Moore gives viewers rarely seen insight into the powerhouses at the heart of our current collapse. 127 min. The Invention of Lying - PG13 - Comedy - Ricky Gervais (creator of The Office) and Matthew Robinson direct this film about a world in which no one has ever lied. Gervais not only directs, he stars too, as writer Mark Bellison, who figures out how to be bad (all by himself, I think), capitalizes (and loves it, Iím sure). 105 min. Toy Story 1 & 2 3D - G - Family - A double feature, only in theaters and only out for two weeks! Having had the opportunity to see an extended trailer for the ‘event’ in 3-D, I can attest these already-classics all dolled up in three-dimensional fashion are not-to-bemissed (for keiki and adults). 185 min. Whip It! - PG13 - Comedy - See this week’s Film Critiques for more. So, you’ve seen the flick and feel inspired? Maui’s got some great SK8 opportunities too! Read the review, go to the theater and check out myspace.com/mauirollergirls and/or mauihockey.com. 111 min. Zombieland - R - Horror - This is one of the few flicks I’ve been truly excited about. Wood harrelson plays the zombie-slaying, kamakazi-cowboy “Tallahassee,” Emma Stone is “Wichita,” Abigail Breslin is “Little Rock,” and Bill Murray is himself. What more to say? 88 min.

Now Showing 9 - PG13 - Animation - Tim Burton produces this progressive feature-length animation, based on Shane Acker’s short film about a post-apocalyptic, Homo sapien-free world where dolls come to life and battle evil machines who threaten to destroy all civilization. 79 min. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs - PG - Family - The beloved book, a husband and wife teamproduction by Judi (author) and Ron Barrett (illustrator), has inspired kids since it’s first publication in 1978 and finally gets its due props with a movie. However, while I really try to refrain from negativity (especially with kids flicks) the trailers have really rubbed me the wrong way. How can producers stray so far from the book’s incredible illustrations? So, keiki, if you see this movie, promise me you’ll read the book too. 90 min. Fame - PG - Musical - This 2009 rendition (yep, based off of the 1980 musical of the same name) follows the trials and tribulations of talented teens at the New York

BY ANU YAGI ANU@MAUITIME.COM

City High School of Performing Arts (known today as the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts. Whew, and I thought Makawao’s SEKIS was a mouthful). 107 min. G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra - PG13 - Action - A super-elite team of international military operatives battle the evildoer organization Cobra, with high tech weapons the likes of which you probably never dreamed of while playing with your Hasbro toys in the sandbox. This flashy new rendition’s sandy battlefield is, not surprisingly, a North African desert. 120 min. The Informant - R - Comedy - A true story, based on the book by Kurt Eichenwald. It’s hard for me to say the name Matt Damon (who in this movie plays executive turned informant/whistleblower, Mark Whitacre), without Team America: World Police (2004) inflection, and for that fact alone I am stoked about this movie. Okay, two facts: the second being Scott Bakula (playing FBI agent, Brian Shepherd), my favorite Enterprise captain, second only to that “bald chap,” Picard. 108 min. Jennifer’s Body - R - Horror - A rock band hopes to increase its chances of getting a record deal, and in a Satanic ritual sacrifice Jennifer Check (Megan Fox), the sexiest (and thereby most popular) chick at the local high school. Check ends up possessed and more powerful than ever, but with a cannibalistic taste for boy flesh. Written by Diablo Cody. 111 min. Love Happens - PG13 - Romance - Aaron Eckhart plays Dr. Burke Ryan, a widower, therapist and self-help guru who despite his success, has been incapable of taking his own let-it-go advice. Enter Jennifer Aniston as Eloise Chandler, a florist who’s sworn-off relationships, that is, until she attends one of Ryan’s seminars. 109 min. My One and Only - PG13 - Comedy - With her two teenage sons in tow, Ann Devereaux (Renee Zellweger) hits the road in a baby blue Cadillac Coupe de Ville in search of a wealthy new mate, after leaving her philandering husband (Kevin Bacon). 108 min. Pandorum - R - Thriller - In total blackness, two astronauts awaken in a hyper-sleep chamber, completely unaware of who they are, let alone their mission. At first they believe they’re alone on the ship, before they realize the terrible truth. 112 min. Ponyo - G - Animation - Think anime-styled Pinocchio meets 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. Surrogates - PG13 - Sci-Fi - In the future, robots are smarter and better looking than humans. So, humans decide to live in isolation and interact with fellow bag of bones via robots alone. Bruce Willis plays an FBI agent who investigates some mischief and conspiracy surrounding the murder of the surrogate inventor. 112 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 (Rachel McAdams), throughout all their longing battles through time and space. 108 min. Tyler Perry’s I Can Do Bad All By Myself - PG13 - Comedy - Aunty April (Taraji P. Henson), a lounge singer, drinks heavily and lives off of her married boyfriend, Raymond. Wanting little to do with her delinquent niece and two little nephews recently charged under her care, she starts to reassess her lifestyle when an intriguing young Mexican man moves into her basement. 113 min.

THIS WEEK’S PICKS Fair thee well

Thursday (Oct. 1), parade 4:30pm/fair 5-11pm; Friday (Oct. 2), 5pmmidnight; Saturday (Oct. 3), 10am-midnight; and Sunday (Oct. 4), 10am-11pm Remember when the Maui County Fair was the biggest, best thing to do on Maui all year? Maybe I’m just being nostalgic, but I still think it is. For local kids like me, it’s where you ride your very first carnival rides (E.K. Fernandez still brings the classics like Pharaoh’s Fury, Super Sizzler, Music Express, Wave Swinger and the notorious Zipper, plus, new this year, the Dragon Coaster), and where fledgling romances bloom over candied apples (if you can’t manage to win your sweetie a stuffed animal, remember to buy a delightful handmade gift from the arts & crafts tent, or get a jump start on your holiday shopping). The plentiful grinds are beyond compare and benefit myriad organizations (I’ll see you in line for my favorites: flying saucers, chow fun and cascaron). The better living freebees always draw a packed tent, while staples like livestock and poultry (no petting zoo this year), the photo salon and school art offer wonderful displays and the entertainment tent consistently keeps you occupied with everything from Hawaiian music to hypnotism. Go make some memories of your own! General admission, $5 Adults/$2 Keiki 5-11; pre-sale/Sunday, $4 Adults/$1 Keiki; Sunday, first 2,000 free, Keiki Under 4-years-old free. mauicountyfair.com

MAUI TIME WEEKLY

TGIF Friday (Oct. 2), 5:30-8pm /8pm-pau, Market St., Wailuku/Iao Theater

First Friday gets spooky with “Rocktober”! Bad Kitty plays classic rock at the Banyan Tree Park, with more live music at Café Ole. Maui Thing again brings fun and fashion while Gallerie Ha hosts a free poetry slam (8pm). The Na Wai ‘Eha community is battling some scary stuff too as they work to restore mauka-to-makai stream flow, and will host a 3-mile march (4pm) from the ‘Iao Valley State Park to Market St. to join the night’s festivities with a sign-waving campaign. Maui OnStage has apparently been bitten by the things that go bump in the night, as the group hosts three amazing shows on this evening alone. First, the performance class presents Spell on You, (5:30pm) in the foyer, followed by a keiki-appropriate version of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (6pm) inside. However, come 8pm, theater attendees must brandish IDs (18+ only) knowing “[they’ve] arrived on a very special night,” for a screening of cult classic, The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Fans ready to “give themselves over to absolute pleasure” know it’s nearly requisite to dress up and sing along. Those new to Rocky Horror, though it’s a month of scares, fear not—you’ll catch on quickly to this “late night double feature picture show,” and be ready to “do the time warp again (and again, and again).” Free. 808-429-6319. 1stFridayWailuku@gmail.com

Friday (Oct. 2), 1-7pm, Wo Hing Temple Museum, Lahaina

Saturday (Oct. 3), 10pm, Oceans Beach Bar & Grill, Kihei

The Chinese Moon Festival is a mid-autumn celebration (held on the 17th day of the 8th lunar month, in China; the 16th day in the United Sates) of great importance to the Chinese community. Steeped in myth and tradition, the legends of the moon range from a life-stealing archer who shoots down multiple suns that scorch the earth, saving but one to a restless apprentice who is banished to a celestial palace, forever chopping a magical tree to a self-sacrificing rabbit who touched the hearts of mischievous sages who ask for a meal. The moon cake—the favorite festival treat—has its roots in the Yuan dynasty where rebellion leaders baked into the cakes secret messages outlining battle plans. Lahaina’s Wo Hing Temple hosts this year’s local festivities, where round, tasty moon cakes (and other souvenirs) will be made available for purchase. Built in 1912, the two-story Wo Hing Temple served as a social meeting hall and houses a sacred altar room, used for religious ceremonies. After the 1940s the temple fell into disrepair, and in the early ’80s the Lahaina Restoration Foundation partnered with the Wo Hing Society to rejuvenate this historic site and open it up as a museum. Free. 661-3262 or 661-5553

From the ghettos of Falmouth, Jamaica come the legendary Twinkle Brothers, who began in the ’60s with real brothers Norman and Ralston Grant. As young children—with no money to buy instruments— they made their own out of tin cans and fishing line and learned to sing in their Sunday School classes, in the church of Anglican Diocese. Following their musical passions, by 1970 they were being produced by Bunny Lee on the Jack Pot label, and entered the Jamaican Song Festival, placing third. Shortly thereafter they formed their own label, Twinkle Productions, and to date have created more than 60 albums and use their living legacy to promote and support the works of developing, rootsoriented artists. Their travels have taken them “all over the world, from Scandinavia to Saskatchewan,” and now they’re coming to Maui to share their—more poignant than ever—simple, profound message of love. 808-891-2414

SIGNLANGUAGE

CAERIEL CRESTIN Sign.language.astrology@gmail.com

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Any efficient leader has to be somewhat single-minded, and, to some extent, insensitive and bullheaded. If you take the time to listen to and consider every single person’s opinion, you’ll never actually get anywhere. Striking a balance between heeding individual needs and steamrolling ahead with a workable decision is what every strong leader must learn to do. This is especially hard for you Librans; because of your ability to see every side, you almost have an inability to ignore any side. That’s not to say you can’t be effective leaders—you just have to work a little harder at it. This week, you should get multiple opportunities to practice.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

I know your secret: you’re competitive. Most Scorpios try to hide this aspect of themselves, and if you think there’s any chance you won’t win, you’ll shrug the whole thing off as if it doesn’t matter before you get involved. However, there are times when you simply have to take a risk. You need to commit wholeheartedly and openly to something (pretending it doesn’t matter won’t work), and consequently risk humiliating defeat or devastating failure. This, my dear, is one of those times. I know you have the courage to seize this opportunity, as perilous as it may be. Don’t disappoint me.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

If you build a fire from paper and cardboard, it’ll light quickly, but blaze up wildly and burn right out. Conversely, if you just stack huge logs of hardwood, getting them to ignite will be impossible. Obviously, you need to have the right mix of flammable stuff that will burn at different thresholds and for different periods of time, to bridge the gap between a bit of newsprint and a thick chunk of maple. Groups work much the same. If you have all likeminded people, you’ll move swiftly but whatever you create will flare up and burn out just as fast. A committee formed entirely out of stubborn old sticks in the mud won’t get anywhere, either. A mix is required. Since you have a hand in creating that mix, I suggest you keep these concepts in mind.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Versatility is key. Think of it this way: if you could only bring one type of booze to a desert island to enjoy forever you wouldn’t necessarily bring your favorite, which might be too specific a flavor, like spiced rum or gin. You’d probably bring something neutral which could be made into lots of different kinds of drinks, like vodka. The same goes for long-term relationships. Although being a specific flavor has its advantages in the moment, being able to take on an abundance of different flavors (i.e., roles) is crucial to make it for the long haul. You run the risk of being too specialized. Retain those amazing “flavors,” but this week, work on developing that vital versatility.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Over the course of your life, you’ve learned that the same rules don’t apply everywhere. For some people this first realization comes when they make the transition between high school and college or real life. This isn’t physics (and even the laws of physics can be bent under certain conditions). What worked in one place just won’t fly in another, and vice versa. That’s why we need to always be ready to flex and adapt. As you get older, this becomes more difficult, as there are more aspects of your life locking bits of you into place. However, you still have room to bend and grow. Make use of that space. Use it, or lose it.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Sometimes I wish personality traits were something you could buy over the counter. If I were placing an order for you, I’d get an ounce of patience, a spoonful of confidence, and a maximum dose of perseverance. Those would yield success, whereas right now you’re getting frustrated early, putting yourself down too much, and giving up long before you should. Luckily, these traits can be developed, even if you can’t pick them up at the neighborhood drugstore. In some cases, it’s as “easy” as pretending you have them already. If you can fake confidence, ignore your frustration, and just stick with this as if you were a stubborn Taurus instead of a flexible Pisces, you’ll get to where you want to go—and consequently start acquiring those qualities for real.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Most Rams are covered in scars, both physical and emotional. That’s because of your tendency to just throw yourself into things, often without really thinking them through. However, this isn’t a bad thing. It’s part of the magic of who you are. Exercising too much caution, or being ruled by fear of accumulating new scars, are the first big steps towards becoming boring, something no Aries should ever be. Be like Wolverine, able to spring back up and heal from anything that doesn’t kill you. Your place is in the thick of the action—if you’ve strayed from there, you’re not where you need to be.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

However much you’d like to “try before you buy,” in some cases that’s simply impossible. And the return policy on relationships is not so much “no questions asked,” as “not without hassle and heartache.” So I can understand your caution. But seeing as how there’s no alternative here—you either jump in feet first or you walk away—what are you really waiting for? This isn’t the kind of thing you should walk away from, so I’m expecting to hear a big splash any second. Buck up, baby, and make shit happen. Even if it ends up a painful disaster, at least you’ll really be living.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You never know when you meet someone what role they’ll end up playing in your life. That cute person you met at a party five years ago could end up marrying you in another five years. The chick you flirted with at the checkout line could turn out to be your new boss. The person you bitterly broke up with could end up falling in love with your best friend—or you, somewhere down the line, all over again. This is the thing: you should never, ever write anyone off, completely burn a bridge, or throw someone under a bus. You may regret it later. Keep that in mind this week.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Someone once pulled the wool over your eyes, so you may have trust issues. Actually, it wasn’t so much that they pulled the wool over your eyes as a whole damn blanket. When that thing got pulled off, you were practically blinded by a potent combination of truth and sunlight, and wondered how you could’ve been so oblivious to something so obvious. Being charmed and trusting isn’t really a fault, even if it gets you into trouble sometimes. It’s better than being suspicious all the time. Sometimes the world deserves suspicion, but it’s far better to give it the benefit of the doubt anyway. This week, try that.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

As much as you love a scandal or juicy bit of gossip, I hope you’ll abstain from such guilty (and sometimes cruel) pleasures this week, as no good will come from them. If you come across a bit of dirt, keep it to yourself. That may be a real challenge, but it’s on you—you know full well that telling just one person is pretty much just as bad as posting it on the Internet. Keep a secret. Fail to, and its ghost is likely to come back and haunt you for quite some time. That’s no fun. Just zip it, already.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

If you’re shocking and irritating just by being you, then so be it. There’s no exceptionally good reason to go out of your way to try to not be those things (and probably fail). Go ahead and shock and/or irritate the hell out of people this week if that’s what’s in the cards. Not only that, but try to have fun doing it. If you get upset when someone gets vexed by you, then what’s the point? Laugh. Enjoy it. You’re just being you, and there’s no crime in that—just even more fun to be had.
