Yes, it it definitely refreshing to see Tulsi Gabbard on the ballot. It gives a fresh start as to where politics in Hawaii should go. Where is that you may ask? It has been long held that there are certain career politicians that can’t just say NO, like Dan Akaka, Dan Inouye, Mazie Hirono, and Mufi Hannemann (I can’t call him Mufi because I don’t know that man personally) but I do know this: career politicians get old, worn out, and best of all, fat. Why, because we the people are so dumb that we pause, say WTF, and then the next breath say... ah, is ok den... Really, it’s not ok. We have to really take a look as to the available choices, one fat

By what stretch of the imagination is Tulsi NOT a “professional politician?� From her early youth, she worked as an aid to her parent’s political campaigns for higher office and on political issues like lobbying AGAINST the Department of Education adopting an anti-bullying policy, like denying equal rights to gay and lesbian couples. Even her so-called environmental “work� consisted almost entirely of letterhead false front organizations controlled by her parents and providing “photo ops� to create an image of environmental concern. But it was all geared towards creating an image to allow her to run for political office like her mother, like her father, like her uncles Rick Reed and Wayne Nishiki. She has been a political animal from her early youth. And, contrary to her cultivated image, she is being secretly supported by Dan Inouye’s political operatives, just as she was when she was parachuted into her City Council seat with their help. EMILY’s List definitely did not bother to consult local women’s groups before taking their leap of faith with Tulsi. -Kolea, via Mauitime.com

It’s refreshing to see someone like Tulsi, who is a role model for her generation stepping up. Our community needs more women leaders like Tulsi taking responsibility in public office. -Joseph Yokohama, via Mauitime.com

Talk of the Island

BY ANTHONY PIGNATARO

NEW YEAR, NEW SUPERFERRY? I’ve been waiting for this one, and good ol’ state Representative Joe Souki didn’t disappoint. In the Dec. 30 Maui News, Souki says he’s sponsored a bill calling for a new inter-island ferry that would pick up where the bankrupt Hawaii Superferry left off. That’s right, folks: Souki wants to start the whole Superferry thing over again. And this time Souki says it will work, as long as those pesky kids on the Hawaii Supreme Court quit their meddling–like that one time when they ruled that the state Legislature couldn’t just pass a bill exempting a single company (in this case, Hawaii Superferry, Inc.) from the state’s environmental review laws. “That damn Supreme Court coming up with a decision that it was special legislation,” Souki said in the News. “What the hell do they think? Every piece of legislation we pass is special.” As anyone who’s watched the legislative process knows, every piece of legislation is special. It’s just like a snowflake, if the snowflake is manufactured in a process that involves back-biting, cunning, manipulation, campaign contributions, expensive lunches, disingenuous compliments and outright lies that is different and unique every time it starts. Assuming old Joe is right–that the only reason the Superferry failed is because the state Supreme Court killed it–then it should be easy to get the thing running again. All Souki needs to do is find a mainland corporation that’s backed by mainland investors to send a few guys over here to run it. Then they need to appropriate a lot of Hawaiian imagery and culture and plaster it all over expensive brochures and websites in hopes of convincing people that whole ferry concept was born and developed here in Hawaii. Then backers and organizers should hold a bunch of “town hall meetings” across the state in which hundreds, if not thousands, of residents show up with questions and comments while government and corporate officials sit on a panel quietly and then later do absolutely nothing with anything mentioned at the meetings. It’s also very important that the ferry backers believe that backroom politicking and secret deals with the governor’s office will be more than enough to offset the state’s environmental laws, to say nothing of public opinion, should it be found that the proposed ferries could harm marine life . Because none of that stuff had anything to do with the demise of the Hawaii Superferry–right, Joe?

MONK SEAL SIGHTING Did someone say marine life? Because on Friday, Dec. 30, as I was driving back from Lahaina I noticed a large, dark, blub-

Come at me , brah! bery, unmoving object sprawled across the beach at Olowalu. Thinking filmmaker Kevin Smith had decided to spend New Years on our lovely island, I hurriedly pulled over and leaped out of my car. Turned out it was a Hawaiian Monk Seal–one of just 1,100 left alive. It was a female, said the very nice young woman from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) who was standing guard over the seal, and had been lounging on the beach since the previous night. Of course, seeing the seal up close (from a distance of 50 feet or so) made me think of the three monk seals who died on Molokai under “suspicious circumstances.” The likeliest suspects are fishermen, angered at the seals for taking their fish. “The seals are now the easy targets of blame for the many ills of our depleting fisheries,” Molokai activist Walter Ritte said last week. “These seals are not invasive; they are like the Hawaiian people who are struggling to survive in their own lands. Hawaiians need to see themselves when they see a Hawaiian Monk Seal. How we treat the seals, is how we can be expected to be treated as Hawaiians in Hawaii.” The NOAA official didn’t have much to say when I asked what she knew of the deaths.

“Not much more than what you read in the papers,” she said. “Since they’re under investigation, I really can’t say anything.” But she did ask me to publish the tollfree phone number people can call if they spot a seal or any marine life stranded on the beach, and here it is: 888-256-9840.

cided to do what legislative bodies do best: publish a mind-numbing four-page policy governing the use of social media networks by senators and Senate officials. “The recent growth of social media use to communicate with government officials and organizations underscores the importance for government agencies to incorporate social media services (i.e., Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Flickr) as integral components to governments’ overarching communication initiatives,” said Senate President Shan Tsutsui in a Dec. 29 Senate email. “At the same time, it is equally vital that we, as agencies and representatives, harness the potential of

SENATE LUVS SOCIAL MEDIA It seems with each passing day that we live in age of social media. As computers and smart phones get cheaper, more of us around the world choose to talk to each other through online websites and applications. The year 2011 was something of a “Twitter year” around the world, where democracy activists and anti-government forces rallied throughout Middle Eastern dictatorships, organizing their moves with the help of social media networks. This was in marked contrast to us Americans, who seem to use these magnificent communication tools to show our friends what we’re eating for lunch, what music we’re listening to or what we really think of a video some dude shot of a cat drinking out of a toilet. Regardless of our motives, social media is fun. There’s a rebellious, secret club aspect to looking at Facebook posts and Twitter feeds. In fact, it’s becoming so fun and pervasive that our state Senate has de-

these tools in the most appropriate and responsible manner. That’s what this policy guides us to do.” Appropriate and responsible–these are two of the last words that should enter any discussion of social media. Social media is popular simply because the vast majority of material found there is inappropriate and irresponsible. Look at Tsutsui’s own use of Twitter, for instance (twitter.com/ ShanTsutsui). It is entirely appropriate and responsible: his account shows zero Tweets, five followers and zero people that the senator has chosen to follow. Isn’t it a bit odd that the senator who talks about the “importance” of social media doesn’t actually use it? ■ anthony@mauitime.com + @apignataro To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/1529n1

LOCAL PLUGS

BY JEN RUSSO from the First Hawaiian Bank Foundation, and a $15,000 grant from the A&B Foundation. Sarah Bredhoff of First Hawaiian Bank and Rock Volner, A&B Properties/HC&S General Manager, were on hand at the groundbreaking to present their checks. Other lead donors included the Root Family Foundation, Goodfellow Bros., Inc., Reny Byer, Dennys Eymard, Sheila Haynes, Montessori School of Maui PTO, Deborah & Tom Peterson, and Beth King.

JAZZ FESTS FOR KEIKI For the artists in the Maui Jazz and Blues Festival and the Lanai Jazz Festival, it’s not enough to perform at soldout performances across the islands. They’re also eager to share their knowledge and love for music with keiki. At every Jazz and Blues event that organizer Ken Martinez Burgmaier plans, he also coordinates free student workPhoto Courtesy of HawaiiOnTV.com

shops. At the upcoming Lanai Jazz Festival, hosted at the Four Seasons Resort in Manele Bay and Lodge at Koele and taking place on Jan. 13 and 14, an educational and free workshop with Grammy winner Skip Martin and an ukulele workshop with Maui’s own Benny Uetaki will benefit Lanai elementary and high school students. “We always want to do music education in the schools,” says Burgmaier. “I love being able to share these amazing talents with our local keiki in the schools of Maui nui and at our free workshop we do at our all our festivals. We have ukulele, slack key, pu blowing and jazz workshops to pass on the torch and inspire our next generation of artists.” After November’s Night of Jazz event at the Ritz Carlton with three-time Grammy winner Tom Scott and the Big Island’s 23-year-old Na Hoku Hano Hano winner Brittni Paiva, more than 100 Maui Preparatory students participated in a workshop. Paiva was reminded of herself at the workshop with the Maui students. “It’s inspiring to be on the other side as an instructor rather than a student,” she says. “Seeing the kids and their love for music really brings me joy and hope that I can inspire them as well. We all go through challenges while learning new music. The worst thing we can do is tell ourselves we can’t do it, or it’s just too hard. When we get into that mindset, we’ll never be able to accomplish anything better. Always stay positive when you’re learning and you’ll be able to play absolutely anything!” For more information on the upcoming free workshops or the Lanai Jazz Festival call the Four Seasons at 565-2000 or go to LanaiJazzFestival.com.

efit not only this campus but the greater community,” said Rene Anderson-Vorfeld, Chief Academic Officer of Montessori School of Maui. The Malolos basketball team started with just eight students. Now it’s 13 players strong with four girls and nine boys, all coached by Beth King and Nancy LaJoy. The team recently won a match against Baldwin students, and they are currently 2-0 in the Interscholastic League. Right now the team practices at the Hali’imaile Gym, and although they appreciate the space, the situation is less than ideal. “Basketball is a popular sport for our Montessori students, with 25 lower elementary students participating and 15 of our middle school students participating, both in coed basketball,” said Nancy LaJoy, Montessori physical education teacher. “A basketball court on the school campus would be a great opportunity to build community, improve the program and host other teams on campus” Deborah Peterson, who retired in May from her position as School Advancement Officer, decided to see the project through to the end. She led the independent Basketball Development Committee through their capital campaign and funding. “It started with a small group frustrated with practicing at different public courts,” said Peterson. “Now we stand here at the location of our very own future courts. The PTO started the fund, giving two thousand as seed money. Then the Bendon Family Foundation gave us funding. Now we are ready to start construction. It has been an incredible journey.” The fundraising goal is $85,000 to complete the six basketball courts, with Goodfellow offering their services m m in-kind. The committee has so far raised $72,000, which is enough to move forward with the project. This terso summer Peterson wrote a $1 and obtained $15,000 grant

Bill Stiles, who owns Green Hawaii Pools, is feeling the aloha spirit of the holidays. So much so that he’s looking for a non-profit or a family in need of a pool makeover. Stiles will do the upgrade for free. The “green” in Green Hawaii Pools represents Stiles’ commitment to using alternatives to harsh chemicals as well as utilizing energy sources like solar panels to power pumps. Stiles uses small amounts of silver, copper and enzymes to kill bacteria and algae instead of chemicals. He will then install the energy-efficient, chemical-free upgraded system at no charge to the pool owner, with the added bonus that it will cost significantly less to operate. Chlorine-free options can be used to create a more comfortable pool experience through better water clarity and color as well as reduced skin irritation. These patented technologies are not only easier on the environment, but can save hundreds of dollars in monthly operational costs. Stiles comes from California with 25 years of experience in pool service. His clientele ranged from multi mil-

Bill Stiles Green Hawaiian Pools

lionaires to average homeowners, all looking for ways to incorporate a greener lifestyle into their homes. The prefilters he uses can save thousands of gallons of water per pool from being backwashed into the sewer and onto the land. “I want people to know that there is an alternative to using harsh chemicals and wasteful heating and filtration setups,” he says. “With Green Hawaiian Pools, you can have a more enjoyable pool experience knowing that your choices are helping to save water and energy while keeping harmful toxins out of our islands’ ecosystems. And with up to 65 percent of the cost of installing solar panel systems covered by a combination of state and federal tax credits, these upgrades truly are affordable for everyone.” If you are a non profit or needy family seeking a pool makeover please contact Bill Stiles at Green Hawaiian Pools at 3445068 or for more information visit greenhawaiianpools.com. ■ -@ReqB (Requests GM Brendan Smith), Jan. 3 jen@mauitime.com + @jenrusso

NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY CHUCK SHEPARD

SHAVE ICE SAVES LIVES! A regional development commission in Michigan, purchasing equipment for 13 counties in May using homeland security grants, bought 13 machines that make snow cones, at a total cost of $11,700 (after rejecting one county’s request for a popcorn machine). Pressed to justify the purchases, officials pointed out that the machines make shave ice, which might be useful for medical situations stemming from natural disasters and heat emergencies (but that they also make snow cones to draw crowds at homeland security demonstrations).

EPIC CHANGE! Once again, a genius tried to pass a piece of U.S. currency in an amount not even close to being legal tender: a $1 million bill. (The largest denomination is $100.) Michael Fuller, 53, was arrested in Lexington, N.C., in November when a Walmart cashier turned him in after he attempted to buy electronics totaling $475.78 (apparently expecting change of $999,524.22).

STALKER AWARD! Most News of the Weird epic cases of “scorned” lovers who seemingly never give up obnoxiously stalking their exes are of Japanese women, but “dumped” Americans surface occasionally. In October, Toni Jo Silvey, 49, was arrested in Houston when her ex (artist Peter Main) reported that she made 146 phone calls in one day and more than 1,000 (and 712 emails) in three months, following their 2009 breakup over his seeing a younger woman. She was also charged with attacking his home with a tire iron, eggs and a sword.

FATHER OF THE YEAR! “Take Your Daughter [or Son] to Work” days are still popular at some companies, to introduce children to their parents’ cultures. Inadvertently, even criminals mimic the phenomenon. Joseph Romano, two-year-old son in tow, was allegedly selling drugs when police picked him up in September in Tunkhannock Township, Pa. And Edward Chatman Jr., 32, who was arrested for raping a woman in Oak Ridge, Tenn., in August, had brought his 6-month-old baby with him when he climbed through the woman’s window (though, police said, he stashed the kid in another room during the assault).

BACTERIA TRANSPLANTS! A cutting-edge treatment when News of the Weird first heard of it in 2000 is now mainstream for those suffering extreme diarrhea due to a lack of “predator bacteria” in the colon (perhaps caused by antibiotics). Among the primary treatments now is a transplant–a transfusion of “fecal flora” from the gut of a bacteria-normal person, to restore the natural balance (introduced by a colonoscope after the stool is liquified in a blender). Following months of failed alternatives, Jerry Grant, 33, said in October that his transplant, at the Mayo

Clinic in Scottsdale, Ariz., worked remarkably well. (A recent study reported success in 70 of 77 patients.)

PERVERSION DU JOUR! The 10-year-old law-enforcement crackdown on Internet child pornography has lately hit a technicality-based roadblock. Several times recently, perverts have beaten charges after creating “child pornography” that consisted of nude adult female bodies onto which facial photos of young girls had been pasted. This handiwork was apparently arousing to two Lakeland, Fla., men, Danny Parker, convicted in 2011, and John Stelmack, convicted in 2010, but both ultimately had their convictions overturned because no actual child was involved in sex.

T

o the heartless person that hit and killed two sweet chihuahuas on Makawao Avenue right in front of the vet’s office.  I know it was an accident, but the fact that you chose to continue on your way rather than to stop and help those sweet dogs–especially knowing the vet was steps away–blows my mind. Two families are now left heartbroken. Here are two words that you need to learn: Pono and Karma. ■

STORAGE LOCKER CRIME! Forgetting to pay the monthly rental fees on a storage locker can have serious consequences if the locker was used to store embarrassing or even incriminating materials. News of the Weird reported one such hapless client in 2007: a central Florida political activist under investigation whose locker yielded a rich trove for a local reporter. Similarly, perhaps, Dr. Conrad Murray (then under suspicion in the death of Michael Jackson) reportedly missed three payments on a Las Vegas storage locker, and prosecutors recovered items that appeared to contribute to their case (although it is not clear that any of the items were ever presented in court).

CALL THE WHAMBULANCE!

Hospital protocols may be changing, but too slowly for Doreen Wallace, who fell in the lobby of the Greater Niagara General Hospital in Ontario in October and broke her hip. Though it was less than 150 feet from the lobby to the emergency room, hospital personnel, following rules, instructed her to call an ambulance to take her around to the ER, though the nearest such ambulance, in the next city, did not arrive for 30 pain-filled minutes. Hospital officials said they would handle things better in the future.

RESPECT THE ORGANS! A New York City jury awarded the family of a late teenager $1 million in November in its lawsuit against the city for mishandling the boy’s brain after his 2005 death. Following “testing,” the medical examiner kept the brain in a jar on a shelf, where it was inadvertently spotted by the victim’s sister during a school field trip to the mortuary (treatment the family considered extremely disrespectful). The case calls to mind that of Arkansas rapist Wayne Dumond, who had been castrated by vigilantes in 1984 and whose genitals the local sheriff had recovered and kept in a jar on a shelf in his office as a symbol of “justice.” Dumond subsequently (in 1988) won $110,000 in a “disrespect” lawsuit against the sheriff. ■ chuck@mauitime.com To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/1529n3

If we're a community of tree huggers−−not haters−−why

is saving URBAN trees so complicated? By Anu Yagi

W

hen he gave us our air-rifles Atticus wouldn’t teach us to shoot. Uncle Jack instructed us in the rudiments thereof; he said Atticus wasn’t interested in guns. Atticus said to Jem one day, “I’d rather you shot at tin cans in the back yard, but I know you’ll go after birds. Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit ‘em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.” That was the only time I ever heard Atticus say it was a sin to do something, and I asked Miss Maudie about it. “Your father’s right,” she said. “Mockingbirds don’t do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat up people’s gardens, don’t nest in corncribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.” -Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird (1960)

When it comes to urban forestry, there’s no adversary but logistics and safety. It’s 2012, man–and we’re all Seuss’s Lorax, speaking for the trees. But if we’re a community of tree huggers–not tree haters–why is saving urban trees so complicated? The root of the problem is foresight–particularly as our burgeoning urban jungle entwines with the real wild. Since last spring, the isle’s latest battle to save leafy leviathans of the land has been waged in bustling Kihei Town, located along the leeward skirt of Haleakala (a mountain that makes up roughly 75 percent of Maui, infamously deforested centuries ago). Bold green paint on cardboard signs begged Maui County to “STOP THE CHOP.” This was the plea of concerned Kihei residents who protested under the very lives they advocated for: four massive monkeypod trees outside the Maui Schooner Resort on South Kihei Road. These four old denizens of the South Maui desert were on the chopping block because of the threat their root systems pose to surrounding infrastructure that’s grown alongside them. Having bowed and broken the concrete sidewalk at their trunks’ base, the trees had been deemed a pedestrian “tripping hazard” (read: liability). Beloved for their broad, domed canopies, monkeypod trees (Albizia saman) boast delicate fireworks of fuchsia-and-cream color blossoms. The decomposition of their licorice-ish-flavored legumes helps put nitrogen back into the soil, aided by the trees’ nyctinastic leaf movements (meaning leaflets close at night and under cloud cover, allowing rain to pass thoroughly through trees’ crowns). A Neotropics native, the monkeypod has been naturalized in South and Southeast Asia and the Pacific

Islands–prolifically so in Hawaii. “The [monkeypod] tree was reportedly introduced into Hawaii in 1847 [and] the entire population may be the progeny of only two seeds,” writes Roger G. Skolmen in a publication for the US Forest Service, citing an anonymous entry in a 1938 edition of the Honolulu-based Sales Builder (a mid-century illustrated monthly focused on the advancement of industry and agriculture). Over the years, patchwork attempts were made to resurface the area surrounding the four trees–efforts which were largely ineffectual. So county officials decided that the trees needed to be removed entirely. Although plans included planting new trees at a safer distance from roadside paths, aesthetic-and eco-minded Mauians attested that it’d be a tragedy to lose the mature monkeypods, regardless of whether they were replaced. So the fate of the Sout Kihei Road “monkeypod quartet” (as it became lovingly dubbed) became an issue with as high a profile as the trees themselves. Activists staged protests, wrote letters and articles and sought specialists’ second opinions. The Kihei Community Association even formed a “Street Tree Committee” to assist in community planning. The Maui County Arborist Committee voted to recommend that the four trees (plus 10 more, across the street, fronting the Luana Kai Resort) be designated “exceptional,” protected under law from being cut down or injured. But it’s just a recommendation; the officiality of which is pending an ordinance via the Maui County Council.


“does the tree really have to come down?... who is responsible for this tree?“ Other trees on the growing list of Exceptional Trees of Maui County include a 45-foot-tall ulu (breadfruit) tree planted on Lahaina’s Front Street by Reverend Dwight D. Baldwin in the early 1800’s; its famous neighbor, the nearly 140-year-old banyan tree canopying the Lahaina Courthouse Square; and 85 rainbow shower trees along a stretch of Baldwin Avenue, among others. By summer’s end, the community cheered the county for its open communication and coordination, and the battle cry “Save the Trees” became the victory dance “Saved the Trees.” Well, kind of. The trees are safe–for the time being. “One of the trees is just too close to a fire hydrant,” said Rod Antone, the county’s communications director. “So for that tree, it’s not a matter of if it’ll come down, it’s a matter of when.” What’s more, Kihei is notoriously affected by floodwaters from heavy rain, and the monkeypod quartet in question was exactly the sticking point that halted a decade-old Public Works road improvement project aimed at mitigating flood damage by addressing drainage and expanding culvert capacities. “The Kihei Drainage Master Plan is underway and recommendations would come from that multi-year effort,” said David Goode, director of the county’s Department of Public Works. So as project design is being revisited–now largely with input from a community trying to balance both their own and the trees’ livelihoods–the South Kihei Road monkeypods will grow on.

But if you think all that’s tricky, consider the plight of Kihei resident Katherine LeVan, who last month received a notice that a monkeypod tree on her property was in violation of Chapter 12.12 (drainage ways) of the Maui County Code. The issue with LeVan’s backyard tree may not be as public–and therefore not as publicized–but it’s still an urban tree on Death Row. The notice of violation was dated Nov. 25, and stated that if “corrective action” (i.e. the removal of the monkeypod) was not taken by Dec. 9, she’d be forced to pay the county’s Development Services Administration fines in the amount of $50 per day, in addition to an initial fine. “[LeVan] came to us when she received the notice of violation,” said Peter Hume of the Wailuku law firm

Cain & Herren. “She had never seen such a thing and neither had we. Due to its location, it would be very difficult to get machinery to the tree; and at least one removal service quoted [the cost] in excess of $5,000.” Hume added that the removal would also destroy a retaining wall on the property. “Our first questions was, does the tree really have to come down?” said Hume. “But that led us to wonder, who is responsible for this tree? It is technically on [LeVan’s] property–but then again, the tree was there before the house was built. Any number of planners, engineers, surveyors, developers, and previous homeowners would surely have dealt with this issue already. When [LeVan] bought the property 10 years ago, there was no discussion of her new role as partial caretaker of the drainage way beyond her backyard. But since the tree exists, and she does nothing to prevent its existence, she technically ‘maintains’ the tree, which is against the County Code, in this instance.” When asked how property owners–or prospective property owners–are notified of their responsibilities when their parcel is adjacent to a county drainage way, Goode said that it “depends on what type of easement is on the land, or if an easement is on the property. Outside of that, there is a law not to block drainage ways, and common sense would dictate not to alter a drainage way.” “To put it in very blunt terms,” said Hume, “the question at hand is: when there’s a lot of surface water and/or stormwaters flowing through [LeVan’s] neighborhood–and there’s enough to create a flow into this drainage way–does the tree affect the flow of water in such a way that it will negatively affect the neighborhood? We believe the answer is no.” Further, Hume added that “we’re also aware that the parcel of land uphill from this area was slated for development, which could cause significant changes in how the waters flow in and around the neighborhood below it.” For his part, Goode is skeptical about the tree not negatively affecting the neighborhood. “We are asking them to either prove to us that the tree does not affect neighboring and downstream properties or, if acceptable to our legal counsel, insure us such that we are not liable should flooding occur and it is determined the tree had a negative affect to a flooding situation,” he said. So Hume decided to take “an old-school field research approach [by] walking the ditch from the top

of [LeVan’s] neighborhood to the bottom”–where the drainage way ends abruptly at the tree root-rendered roller coaster-ride-of-a-parking lot behind the Kihei’s land-o-bars known best as “The Triangle.” Hume argues “despite its variations in depth and width, it is a consistent drainageway that manages to channel the excess flow through that area. [LeVan] has lived through several heavy flood seasons at that location, and has photographic evidence that the drainage way works very effectively, particularly behind her house.” The issue is still complicatedly ongoing; but as with the monkeypods on South Kihei Road, the fate of LeVan’s tree is hopeful. “The county has been very easy to communicate with,” said Hume. “We were pleasantly surprised that the civil engineers cared about the tree, too. More importantly, they cared about giving [LeVan] the opportunity to look more closely at the matter. A willingness to look at the big picture is so important in situations like this, and we were happy to find the county of like mind.”

Scottish poet Alexander Smith once wrote that “A man does not plant a tree for himself. He plants it for posterity.” Taken literally, that’s dandy but for the irony of how–as is oft the case of urban trees–the very heirs apparent to a tree’s beautiful bounty might one day be threatened by it. So maybe we need to plan in such a way that our Loraxian causes aren’t just reactionary. Then again, the fact that we care for the cause at all bodes well for a species that–while we know its a sin to kill a monkeypod (or any other tree)–still wipes the crap from our assess with soft wads of pulp paper (and if I may selfflaggelate, also prints newspapers and the like). Hey, problems need solutions and solutions take time. So, yeah. Saving our urban trees is–and will remain– a complicated process; and perhaps rightly so. Nothing worth fighting for comes easy. ■ anu@mauitime.com + @anuheayagi To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/1529L Comment on this story at mauitime.com

Leoda’s Kitchen and Pie Shop Go for the pie, stay for everything else BY JEN RUSSO

Leoda’s Kitchen and Pie Shop 20 Olowalu Village Road leodas.com @leodasmaui 662-3600 he Meta Given’s Modern Encyclopedia of Cooking, published in 1959 and given to me by my late maternal grandmother, says of pastry and pies, “There is every reason why modern pies should be even better than those (of tender memory) which Grandma used to make. If there is any Great American Dessert, it’s probably pie.” Pie never really goes out of fashion–in fact, our beloved American Pie is a descendant of the “pye” cooked and enjoyed hundreds of years ago in the west. Leoda’s Kitchen and Pie Shop in Olowalu has made this crusty confection of wheat and fat as their signature offering, and whether they use old or new recipes I can’t tell, but either way they romance your mouth with flaky, crisp pastry that’s engulfed by sweet, baked fruit or floaty cream filling or savory rich meat and gravies. The flavors on the menu at Leoda’s may remind us of our grandmothers’ era, and the decor offers a sweet combination of old warmth and charm with modern touches, but the presentation and interpretation is all fresh. Many will probably be surprised at the three-inch single

T Ham'n

serving pie or the five-inch regular pie. It’s really quite brilliant: who among us can’t eat an entire three-inch diameter pie? That way you can avoid messy uneaten slices that flop over and ruin the beauty of the moon shaped disc of goodness. If you are a purist and need a larger size it’s yours–you just have to order ahead of time. Leoda’s location, smack dab in the middle of the pali, could be a death sentence or stroke of genius. It’s an oasis of good food, a bakery worth popping in for, or just a place to grab lunch or dinner along your way in and out of the Westside. The food is also something unique. Leoda’s casual, handheld pies can be a coffee paired baked treat of fruit or a onehanded snack stuffed with sautéed mushrooms, zesty corn or tender pork. There are also burgers, hot dogs and sandwiches, all served on fresh baked breads. The more adventurous will try the fried mac and cheese, Reuben lumpia and scalloped potatoes. But it���s the pies that get all the attention. They sit in the

glass case when you come in the door; it’s difficult to escape without taking one to go. The fresh baked loaves of bread are less ostentatious, but just as important. Fickle yeasts have foiled my own attempts at creating fluffly clouds of bread so I hold these in high regard. Leoda’s artisan bread loaves can take me back to even more rustic days of food but their undeniable perfection of crumb and flavor only leaves me craving carbs on a whole new level. They serve all of their sandwiches on this bread. Meats, cheeses and vegetables can be found in all kinds of combinations on the fresh butter white, hapa wheat, rye and seasonal whole grain. The

Mmm... more bread.

Ham’n stood out with an intense merging of sweet apricot tomato jam with premium savory cured swine, Jarlsberg, local basil pesto and garlic aioli. I was also pleasantly satiated by my cheese steak take home leftovers in the fridge after a spell in my toaster oven. It’s easy to fall in love with Leoda’s Kitchen and Pie shop’s pies, breads and sandwiches, but here’s a secret: try the Fried Salad. Now chef Sheldon Simeon has a way with Brussels sprouts. His Brussels a la Star Noodle served with bacon and kim chee paste created a makeover for the wall flower veggie. But the fried salad at Leoda’s dominates that dish with delicate fried Brussels sprouts leaves, celery and radish, a tad of local mint and a burnt orange dressing. While I ate the diaphanous browned green curls I wondered who got the job of peeling the sprouts apart to fry their tiny leaves. I salute you, whoever you are. You have toiled to bring me this surreal salad, a modern wonder among blasts from the past. ■ jen@mauitime.com + @jenrusso

(OK, you might run also into Sc Scrappers and me when we’re working late–which is always and boring. Moving on...) BUT tha that’s because we Wailukuans are bottling-up our buoyancy for every first Friday of the mo month, when Market, Main and Vineyard Streets are transformed by a town party so succe cessful that the other on-isle towns followed suit (i.e. Lahaina Second Fridays, Makawao Th Third Fridays and Paia Fourth Fridays).

SCREENING: WARREN MILLER’S “LIKE THERE’S NO TOMORROW” - Every January when Warren Miller’s annual winter sports film debuts (this is his 62nd!), I can’t help but wonder if the prehistoric Nordic progenitors of skiing would ever have imagined that centuries into the future, their sticks-and-poles mode of transport would become the elite/extreme winter sport it is today? Or that an acclaimed filmmaker like Miller would bring images of world-class winter athletes–the likes of Chris Davenport, Julia Mancuso, Daron Rahlves, Colby West and Seth Wescott–to audiences on a tropical isle like Maui. *Like There’s No Tomorrow* is narrated by Olympic gold medalist Jonny Moseley and shot on location on five continents. Patrons of Saturday’s screening at the MACC can enjoy music both before and after the film, and opt for a pre-show dinner made available by Maui Tacos. $12 general / $10 keiki (12-years-old and younger). 7:30pm.

MANA’O RADIO’S UPCOUNTRY SUNDAYS - This benefit concert series for Mana’o Radio features eclectic acoustic music by local greats, and this month it’s Ono Grimes, Steve Sargenti and Sebrina Barron. Ono Grimes dishes a unique mix of funk, jazz, salsa and swing (read: get ready to boogie), and is cleverly named for frontman Steve Grimes, a famed guitar maker and Na Hoku Hanohano nominee. Sargenti is a noted Maui songwriter and the beautiful Barron is a vibrant up-andcomer.

TUESDAY, JANUARY 10 0 SUPPORTING UPCOUNTRY ROTARY PROJECTS IS AS EASY AS (EATING) PIZZA PIE - Seeing as the crowds literally spill from Flatbread Company’s doors on any given night, we know you’re eating there anyway.

WEDNESDAY, WE W E DN D N ES S DAY, JA JANUARY 11 GEORGE KAHUMOKU JR’S MASTERS OF HAWAIIAN MUSIC SLACK KEY SHOW - Truly a nonpareil Hawaiian Renaissance man, we can’t help but lalalalove Uncle George Kahumoku Jr. He’s an educator, a master musician, a bad-ass farmer, a candid community leader and a bunch of other cool stuff we can’t fit in this manini space. But the best way to learn about awesome Uncle George is to check out his Masters of Hawaiian Music Slack Key Show on Wednesday nights. Sure, the crowd’s mostly tourists–but it’s a totally local spectacle. Each week, Kahumoku features a different local legend (plus mainstay hosts Da Ukulele Boyz and Sterling Seaton), and this week’s grandmaster is none other than Ledward Kaapana. $39.99. 7:30pm. Napili Kai Beach Resort Pavilion (5900 L. Honoapiilani Rd., Lahaina); 669-3958; slackkey.com

On the eve of World War I, Joey is sold to a soldier and we experience the war through the eyes of this long suffering and supernaturally strong horse. This is director Steven Spielbergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first film in four years and he hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lost his touch as a force of nature behind the camera. Full of visual and story nods to The Grapes of Wrath, Gone With the Wind and All Quiet on the Western Front, the filmmaking is frequently awesome, with World War I battle scenes staged as fiercely as anything in Saving Private Ryan. John Williamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; dependably powerful score is as gorgeous as the crisp, picture-perfect cinematography. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good thing Spielberg is still a wizard at shaping huge, difficult set pieces, since heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dealing with a story that is episodic and hokey. Based on a novel that has become the

â&#x20AC;&#x153;A solid equestrian dramaâ&#x20AC;? (Barf sound).

most popular non-musical drama currently playing on Broadway, War Horse is likely an unforgettable experience on stage or the written page. As a movie, it entertains, even as it never convinces. The tale is meant to symbolically convey how war separates us from our families, with Joey the horse the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real star, as the focus shifts from one owner of the horse to another. Even with actors like David Thewlis and Emily Watson in the cast, Joeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s close-ups are the ones that will win audiences over the most. The first act is a tall stack of clichĂŠs, with every grand moment from The Black Stallion

and Black Beauty polished off and reworked. Not a family film, as it has a scene where a horse thrashes about in a tangled sea of barbed wire that will disturb many. Yet, it is indeed rare to see a film portraying World War I and the PG-13 is more for the emotional intensity of the film rather than explicit violence. The best scene is a wonderfully written sequence where two soldiers, from opposing sides of the battle, share an unlikely collaboration when they encounter Joey. A few key scenes are supposed to work our tear ducts but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t because the non-horses are such thinly shaped, barely defined stock characters.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all very well done but, when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s over, I had no lingering emotional response, found the whole thing predictable and admired some choice moments rather than the whole. Like Spielbergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s occasionally thrilling but uneven Empire of the Sun, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so impressively produced that it deserves to be seen, especially on the big screen, where you can bask in some truly jaw dropping imagery. It may not be one of Spielbergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best, but maybe we should rejoice that the 65-year old filmmaker, one of the most powerful and influential in Hollywood, is still making films this ambitious, epicsized and sometimes truly stirring. The big final scene, which I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reveal, sums up the experience of watching the film overall: the humans in the scene should have us drowning in tears but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the astounding sunset that bathes a horse in the closing moments that truly mesmerizes and wows us. Spielberg puts on a solid equestrian drama but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re asked to believe so many contrived coincidences, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s given us a story that always feels like a movie and never something remotely plausible. Metaphor or not, the tale might win you over because of the horse, not the talking, two-legged animals fighting the war effort. â&#x2013;  To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/1529f

George Costanza: It became very clear to me sitting out there today, that every decision I’ve ever made, in my entire life, has been wrong. My life is the opposite of everything I want it to be. Every instinct I have, in every of life, be it something to wear, something to eat–itt’s all been wrong. Jerry Seinfeld: Well here’s your chance to try the opposite... If every instinct you have is wrong, then the opposite would have to be right. George Costanza: Yes, I will do the opposite. I used to sit here and do nothing, and regret it for the rest of the day, so now I will do the opposite, and I will do something! -Seinfeld, “The Opposite” (1994)

C

aroling from the grave, Ol’ Uncle Franklin–with Einstein and Twain piping misappropriated harmonies–sing to me of insanity’s defining quality: repetition of the same, expecting different results. See, though the spare key is supposed to be under the doormat, it’s not. Still, I look under the doormat at least a dozen times, as if the key (during the seconds which have lapsed since the last time I looked) might’ve been magically spit-back from the concrete void. With chagrin I concede that the dryer’s sock-sized space/time vortex has not relocated. And as I scrape my ass on the lowest windowsill, I can’t help but think about how all this feels a lot like making and breaking New Year resolutions. The doormat is the windswept per annum calendar; the missing key is my will change. Because indeed, ‘twas the season to have been jollily guilt-free as another indulgent December’s justified by a deluded January to come. And with advance apologies for clanging crass bells, my morning constitutionals have been proof of what a good job I’ve done. (C’mon, the book Everybody Poops is at this point a hackneyed holiday gag gift. I’m sure your delicate sensibilities will survive any offense.) Sure, I could embark on another New Year resolving to weigh less, bullshit less, floss more and be more responsible, but I’ll only get the lesses and mores mixed up–again. So, since the only thing resolutions have done is prove my proclivity for failure, it’s become my first order of 2012 business to take the fool’s errand of rewording what past years’ left unresolved and archive it alongside alchemy and posting to MySpace. Hey, if you can’t quit while you’re ahead, at least quit before you lose your head. (Thanks again, Uncle Franklin.) Though I’m giving the New Year resolutions the boot, I don’t mean to discredit the value of contemplating the passage of time

past and endeavoring for better in the time that’s yet to come. I mean, it’s pretty damned cool that we collectively mark another of the Earth’s ellipses around our sun (“the Earth’s birthday” as my friend Rose comically describes), and the New Year holiday is both a pleasant reminder and convenient parameter for meditation. Alright, that brings me to the second order of 2012 business: reflect on the business of 2011. Um... Yikes. This is going to be harder than I thought. See, I don’t know about you, dear friends, but my concept of time is fucked. Maybe it’s just the way the shape of time seems to change as we age, but I think it has more to do with keeping the hours of the wicked. It used to be that I’d visualize time with each day trapped in a dry white box. A perfect game of Tetris, seven sugar cube days would ticker along as if on a receipt strip before tearing-off to stack by week–weeks that then chunked-off into square months which ticked along into twelve-month years and, finally, five-year bundles ever since 1985. Maybe that sounds weird, maybe that sounds normal. Whatever. It worked. This was my image whenever looking forward or backward or to the tip of my nose. But in these last few restless years, any dry concretization of time has been obliterated, for better or worse. Now, everything is just a mash of fast and slow moments, indiscernible from dream and delusion. It seems like I can’t remember anything anymore unless I wrote it down (and managed not to lose it). So, um, yeah. You know all that mushy gushy stuff I just said about reflecting on the year past and whatever? I take it all back. It’s impossible. And even if it were possible, it’s boring. You don’t want to hear me yak on about a year I’ve already yaked on about any more than I want to be reminded of all foibles. In fact, I think the lesson I learned today is it’s OK to just move on. No tedious reflection. No grand resolutions to make grand changes. Just forward progress while keeping it high in mind that there’s no use looking under the doormat when the key isn’t there. ■

QUIZunderstood ANSWERS

...to questions on page 4

1: B–Rose 15.1 percent.

BY CAERIEL CRESTIN CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19)

Although in practical matters, you’re rarely surprised, the emotional world can still shock and astound you (as you may have recently discovered). Unfortunately, even though in some aspects of life you can prepare and plan for many probable outcomes, when it comes to feelings it’s virtually impossible to predict what will happen next. Stop trying. It’s an annoying (to everyone else), pointless waste of energy. When it comes to matters of the heart, your best bet is to stay in the moment, spontaneously run with the hilarious, passionate, and fun things as they happen—and roll with the punches when they happen, too. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18)

The skeptic in you doesn’t believe in the power of good luck charms, but please resist going around popping others’ delusionballoons. Think back to your less cynical childhood, when you probably held on to a special talisman or two, for luck, security, or comfort. These objects can have whatever power we endow them with. If someone truly believes that they’ll be more successful with their lucky rabbit’s foot in hand, they probably will be—if only because they’ll go into the situation with more optimism and confidence. Don’t rob them of that, and they might spare you the shattering of your own helpful illusions—yes, you have some, too. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20)

You frequently play fast and loose when it comes to your own boundaries, and everyone knows you’re generally more interested in bending the rules than abiding by them. However, when it’s your job to enforce someone else’s boundaries—particularly someone who can’t necessarily stick up for themselves—you must be much more vigilant and strict than you’d be for yourself. This is an opportunity for you—real practice sticking to your guns and holding your own. Bonus: once you’ve learned to do it on someone else’s behalf, you’ll be much better at doing it for yourself, too. ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19)

The silver lining of tragic events is that often when people have nothing to lose—someone’s about to die, a relationship is on the verge of breaking up, etc.—they put all their cards on the table, and things get better than ever. If only people could be motivated to do this before things get so close to disaster! Then how cool would your life be? Fortunately, this week you and yours might be more willing to put more cards on the table than ever before, leading to deeper connections, more exciting adventures, and surprising fun had by all. Make sure you give as good as you get.

it would go off whenever we put on the toaster, or cooked anything. It was simply too sensitive. There’s someone in your life who’s an awful lot like that annoying smoke detector—with excellent intentions, but way too thin-skinned to function in real life. Of course, you can’t just take out their batteries. However, this week you should be able to find a good workaround that’s a lot less extreme than the obvious alternative (walking away). And who knows, in time they’ll figure out how to compromise— something that smoke alarm will never be able to do.

2: D–Trust for Public Land, which bought the property for $861,000 at auction, may keep the area preserved, assuming the bid is approved. 3: C–Repair of tsunami-related damage caused to shoreline sections of Honoapiilani Highway.

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22)

We tend to model our real life relationships on those we’ve observed—in relatives and friends, on TV, or in the movies, etc. While these have hopefully given you a wide range of possible relationship styles to choose from, I hope you now have the confidence to design your own relationships (romantic or platonic), from the ground up, perfectly customized to the two of you, and independent of others’ examples or expectations. The more fully you can free yourselves from preprogrammed rules and just be exactly who you are, the happier you’ll be. That may be a distant goal—but this is at least a good week to get started. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22)

Being arguably one of the most stubborn signs (rivaled only by those bullheaded Taureans and billygoat Capricorns), you truly have a hard time backing down, even when all reason and logic dictates you probably should. What will it take, my dear, to get you to give up and/or admit you were wrong? Half the time, we end up having to lie and say we made the mistake, just to end stalemates like these. This time, though, the stakes are too high for such peacemaking lies—now you’ll need to truly and completely let things go, or face an ongoing cold war with no end in sight. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22)

Single Libras*, there’s no right or wrong way to do love. People meet partners from slutty one-night stands, from online personal ads, from blind dates, and a million other ways. Stop making rules for yourself about how things should happen or play out, and your chances of encountering someone who’ll become special to you, one way or another, increase tremendously. That doesn’t mean the second you stop limiting yourself that you’ll meet someone amazing—these things can’t be guaranteed. But your life will doubtless become more interesting—and isn’t that, by itself, totally worth it? (*If you’re a non-single Libra, this week pat yourself on the back and set up one of your single friends on a blind date, won’t you?)

TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20)

Fairness is an important concept for you Bulls. You’ve occasionally dug in your heels or even gone to battle for it. That’s all commendable, of course, and we all admire you for it, but “fairness” isn’t always a cut-and-dry, black-and-white affair. People have their own customized notions and arrangements, and it’s not your job to make sure they get what you consider their fair share, only that they’re happy with the situation—even if you wouldn’t be, in their shoes. That means sometimes you just need to bite your tongue, avert your rolled eyes, and leave well enough alone. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22)

It’s so easy to get caught up in the drama of whatever’s currently causing suffering or hardship for you. The truth is, if you take about five steps back and look at your life, you’re pretty damn lucky, even if things are very far from perfect. Be grateful, already, and proactive instead of complaining about the stuff that isn’t so great. It’s fixable, especially if you’re busy feeling optimistic and glad about all the cool shit you’ve already got going on. Get caught in a whirlwind of whining, though, and things are much more likely to go from “less than great,” to much, much worse. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20)

We used to have a smoke alarm we disconnected because

SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21)

Even if someone deserves a piece of your mind for what they’ve said or done, that doesn’t mean you should necessarily give it to them. What good, after all, would a conflict do at this stage? That doesn’t mean you need to simply forgive and forget, but butting heads now wouldn’t be good for you and yours (which is all that matters; screw whoever screwed you). Keep your distance and keep your cool while you focus on fixing up the messes in your life, without focusing on their sources. Forget shit like “closure” or revenge—living your life well is a better substitute for either of those. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21)

You’re rarely a prude, but sometimes you probably should be. Being free-spirited, non-judgmental, and inclusive is a very good general philosophy; however, that doesn’t mean every crazy thing necessarily has a proper place in your life. It’s alright to say “no thanks” to many things without feeling like you’re missing out on anything you’d actually want. By this point, you should be pretty sure when a refusal won’t deprive you of anything special. Although I still think you should say, “yes,” almost all the time, feel free to say, “no,” when necessary, without feeling bad.
