HATES THE TSA [Editor’s note: the following two letters concerned our Mar. 1, 2012 cover story “Airport Insecurity.”] We are living a Brave New World in 2012! Aldous Huxley knew exactly what he was talking about in 1931. Today is the last day we can renew our driver’s license without having to prove “legal presence.” The state says the new rules are in effect because of 9/11. After today you need to provide an original birth certificate and social security card and passport to renew your driver’s license in Hawaii. It will take two weeks to get your new license and it will have a gold star on it to indicate that you’re in compliance. Scary times we’re living in. -Sheeple, via MauiTime.com

The world has always been scary, always will be. It’s security theater and yet another bloated taxpayer funded agency. This whole mindset is, by design, to get you to submit. To allow a rent a cop to put his hands down your pants is repulsive. It is not keeping us safe from “terrorists.” It’s a clear violation but these goons do whatever the hell they want. Zero respect for people who perform these insane acts for a paycheck and don’t question the validity of what they are doing–damn sheep and KoolAid drinkers. What happened to the wand and the good old metal detectors? It’s a bad mindset, and I think what these agents are doing to the American public is horrible, stealing in my mind being the least of it. And for those who say, “Don’t like it? Don’t fly,” these morons will be feeling you up soon when you go the store. It’s a slippery slope and we are moving right along. Very UnAmerican. -Amazed, via MauiTime.com

Sun Block

Four Maui County Councilmembers would prefer to meet in secret

Bob Carrroll

Joseph Pontanilla

Mike White

BY ANTHONY PIGNATARO

L

ET’S TALK for a moment about HB 2742. It’s a very short bill that exempted “legislative bodies of the counties of this State” from the Hawaii Sunshine Law, which mandates certain rules governing open meetings. In other words, if the bill passes, deliberative bodies like the Maui County Council would no longer have to maintain quorums of members before meeting or publish agendas and notices days in advance. Put simply, they would be able to meet with whoever they wanted and discuss whatever they wanted and decide on courses of action entirely in secret. The bill, introduced by Calvin Say (“by the request of another party,” according to the legislative website), immediately spurred furious reaction from citizens across the state. Their comments mostly ranged from straight opposition to revolutionary anger. On Feb. 21, the House Judiciary Committee very shrewdly voted to defer the measure, effectively banishing it to limbo for the rest of the legislative session. Of course, I said people “mostly” hate the bill. That’s because four lonely individuals stood up to say they thought the bill was a right, peachy idea. These individuals are Maui County Councilmembers Danny Mateo, Joseph Pontanilla, Bob Carroll and Mike White. “Thank you for the opportunity to testify in support of this important measure,” Mateo wrote to the House Judiciary Committee Chairman Gil Keith-Agaran on Feb. 18 (Pontanilla, Carroll and White wrote much shorter letters, basically just referring to Mateo’s letter and saying something to the effect of “What he said”). Now the Maui County Council never voted on whether to support HB 2742.

Nonetheless, Mateo was sufficiently moved to write his letter of support to Keith-Agaran anyway, noting that “I am providing this testimony in my capacity as an individual member of the Maui County Council.” Mateo started off by contrasting a lawmaking body like the County Council with an appointed board. His conclusion was that the Sunshine Law needed to govern appointed boards because they “have little accountability to the public once appointed and a narrow scope of responsibilities.” But Mateo said an elected body should be treated differently. “[W]hen applied to an elected board like a county council, who has direct accountability to the electorate and a broad range of responsibilities, these same [Sunshine Law] interpretations unjustifiably interfere with the important legislative work of the County Council,” Mateo wrote. For that reason, Mateo added, “the State Legislature was wise to exempt itself from the Sunshine Law, and should give the same consideration to the county councils.” The idea that the state Legislature was “wise” to exempt itself from open meeting requirements is hardly a universally held view. “The city council must not be exempted from sunshine laws,” wrote Choon James of Country Talk Story on Feb. 20. “Otherwise, it would disintegrate into what the House and Senate is like today.” But Mateo pushed further with the view that getting elected provided a level of accountability that transcended the need for public meetings. “[E]lected officials are directly accountable to the constituencies that elected them,” Mateo wrote. “If an elected official is conducting back-room deals, out of the eye of the public, then the official will not be re-elected.” As to how the public would learn of secret back-room meetings in the absence of Sunshine Law protections, Mateo didn’t

say. But no matter–Mateo waited until the very end of his letter before giving his real reason for supporting HB 2742. “With the strict regulations of the Sunshine Law on prohibited interactions, council members have little or no opportunity to communicate outside of meetings to find areas of agreement and avoid misunderstandings,” he wrote. Bingo! Mateo wants council members to be able to meet in secret, without quorums or properly noticed agendas and away from public scrutiny because it’s just more convenient for them. Debating issues in front of citizens and television cameras is, to be honest, rather messy. There’s great danger that hidden agendas and secret lobbying will be exposed. And

we all know how ugly disagreements between council members can get. You know what? Too bad. Democracy is at its messiest when it’s practiced openly and honestly. Secret meetings attract secret kickbacks, bribes and payoffs. More government, not less, needs to fall under the state’s open meetings requirements. Of course, if the potential for public embarrassment and hard work is too much for Mateo, Pontanilla, Carroll and White, they’re more than free to find what would undoubtedly be far more lucrative employment in the private sector. ■ anthony@mauitime.com + @apignataro To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/1538n1

Coconut Wireless

Talk of the Island

BY ANTHONY PIGNATARO to prevent corruption in government,” Maruoka, testified. “Every step forward in protecting against corruption helps improve public confidence in government... We want all those who participate in the formulation of public policy, laws and rules to be held to a high standard.” Given the support HB 2175 has gotten so far, it seems the legislators have a different view of the term “high standard.”

HAWAII FIVE-O STAR HAS DRUG PROBLEM

Hawaii State Legislature

WILL THE LEGISLATURE EXEMPT TASK FORCES FROM ETHICS CODE? Investigative Reporter Ian Lind published a couple great blog posts on Mar. 5 listing a bunch of state bills that have passed their third readings. Making the list was HB 2175, a dandy of a bill introduced by 14 representatives. The bill’s quite simple, really: it exempts individuals (except those who are already state employees) who get named to special Task Forces by the governor or the Legislature from having to comply with the state Code of Ethics. Hot damn! And it’s apparently a very popular idea with our own state Attorney General David Louie. According to the written testimony submitted by Louie on Feb. 15 to the House Committee on Legislative Management, the bill is pragmatic and necessary. “[T]his bill recognizes two realities,” states the testimony. “[F]irst, that with increasing frequency, state officials and agencies need to deal with issues and situations that require technical or experiential information that government does not have and cannot readily obtain; and second, that individuals capable of providing state decision-makers with this knowledge and expertise often have acquired that information and experience by owning or working for businesses or other undertakings that deal with the very issues or situations with which government needs to deal.” In other words, because smart people are increasingly staying in private industry and away from government in all its forms (a very novel argument indeed for a government official to make), government needs to extend every courtesy and bend every rule possible to make sure the smart people help out government whenever possible. And if that means looking the other way when these smart people might in some way benefit in some small, personal, financial way by the recommendations they report as part of a special task force, then so be it. If I sound a bit cynical, note that I’m not

alone. In fact, JoAnn Maruoka, the Legislative Committee Member for the League of Women Voters of Hawaii, testified to the same committee and on the same day as the Attorney General’s office on the bill, but took a radically different view. According to Maruoka, HB 2175 is a travesty. “While we understand the need for and certainly encourage participation by citizens in such task forces and working groups, there is no sound reason for such an exemption,” Maruoka said. “We are gravely concerned about the inherent risks of actual or at the least the perception of conflict of interest, including undue influence and use of public office for personal gain. In fact, from a citizen’s perspective, this proposed exemption flies in the face of good sense and simply does not pass the smell test. It would not only set a bad tone, it could well start things down a slippery slope. In these times of badly-eroded public trust in government, it does not make sense to build in loopholes that are counter to openness and transparency.” And just to make sure the good legislators on the committee understood her point, Maruoka made it as pointed as possible. “The purpose in having a Code of Ethics is

Should anyone disagree with the notion that Lind is still the best investigative reporter in Hawaii, he also nailed the truth about Hawaii Five-O actor Alex O’Laughlin’s problem with prescription drugs. “The headline on the Star-Advertiser story today: “‘Five-0 star taking time off for health,’” Lind blogged on Mar. 3 “Like he’s just overworked and needs a rest. Then there’s a guarded reference to ‘problems with pain medication,’ sounding like perhaps there are problems prescribing the correct dosage or something.” The problem stemmed from the original statement released by O’Laughlin’s publicist: “Alex is taking a short break from Hawaii Five-0 to receive supervised treatment for prescription pain medication due to a recent

shoulder injury.” Ah, the old shoulder injury line. Sounds pretty harmless. Except that, as Lind (and Hawaii News Now’s Ben Gutierrez) reported, O’Laughlin’s problems stem from “addiction to prescription drugs.” The AG wants to loosen up the state’s Code of Ethics, and now a popular actor who plays a Honolulu cop on TV is in rehab. And people think nothing happens in Hawaii.

EMILY SMACKS LINDA OVER ROY Ok, I’m going to run really quick through some extremely divisive social politics. First, Republican U.S. Senator Roy Blunt of Missouri tried to kill the Obama Administration’s controversial rule requiring insurance companies to cover the costs of contraception (this is the socalled Blunt Amendment, which failed). Then Honolulu Civil Beat reported that former Republican Governor Linda Lingle, who is running for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Democrat Daniel Akaka, would have Blunt appear as a “Special Guest” at a fundraiser for her on Mar. 6 in Washington, D.C. Then EMILY’s List, the powerful pro-choice political action committee, sent out this press release the day of the fundraiser, smacking Lingle upside the head: “Linda Lingle’s days of pretending to be a moderate are over,” said Stephanie Schriock, President of EMILY’s List. “She may still be dodging questions about whether she supports right-wing Senator Blunt’s infamous proposal to give your boss control of your health care coverage, but she’s telling Hawai’i everything they need to know by highlighting Blunt’s support for her campaign at a Washington DC fundraiser. Let me be clear–in their zeal to deny women access to birth control, Republicans have threatened the health care of every man, woman, and child in Hawai’i by literally placing your medical decisions in the hands of your boss. If your boss thought childhood vaccinations were wrong, he would not have to cover them under Blunt’s proposal. If your boss thought unmarried women shouldn’t have babies, he could deny their maternity care coverage. It’s nothing short of stunning for Linda Lingle to publicly embrace Roy Blunt just days after his radical amendment was defeated in the Senate. And Hawai’i is definitely watching.” As for how all this turns out, stay tuned for the November elections.■ anthony@mauitime.com + @apignataro To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/1538n2

HOW YOU CAN SHARE THE GREEN If you think St. Patty’s day is just an occasion to drink green beer and eat bangers and mash, then it’s time to step it up a notch and sign on for a spot at “Sharing the Green” on Mar. 17. This charity golf and extreme bocce tournament is spearheaded by Mike O’Dwyer, the owner of Mulligan’s on the Blue, Barry Helle, Mulligan’s general manager and Patrick Kilbride, the regional sales manager for Title Guarantee. These three Irishmen from Maui are dedicated to making a difference in our community by raising money for Back Pack Buddies of Kamalii School and Hospice Maui. O’Dwyer is known for his community involvement and generosity. The Hale Kau Kau golf tournament he's sponsored for the last nine years has helped feed the needy during the holidays. He says he gains inspiration from his wife Tiare, who teaches special education. O’Dwyer left Ireland at 20 and came to the U.S. to work in the food and beverage industry. He moved to Maui in 1996 to join the team at Four Seasons Wailea, and by May 2001 he had opened Mulligan’s. “Maui is a great island to make home and, believe it or not, it is very much like Ireland,” says O’Dwyer. “It feels good for me to be able to give back and show my thanks to Maui for accepting me.” Kilbride’s Irish family spans five generations in the U.S., beginning with his paternal great great grandfather’s relocation from Ireland in 1826. “When grandpa O’Connor left Ireland, he did not say goodbye,” says Kilbride. “He knew he had to leave. His mother had too many children to feed and he felt he was taking food away from his siblings.” Kilbride says his experience with hunger

growing up among 20 kids in the Kilbride and O’Connor families in Miami inspired him to help those in need. “The built-in personal drive I have to help and to serve has been part of me for years,” says Kilbride. “Because I was blessed with Living Angels along the way when I was growing up quite poor and often hungry in Miami in the 1950’s and 1960’s. Living Angels were there for me when I was in need and even helped lead me to where I am today.” Kilbride also attributes his ability to make a difference to his wife Linda Morgan, president of Linda Morgan & Associate, Inc., his daughter Katie and Title Guarantee. “TG makes it easy for us to find ways to support people all over the state by affording us the time and the funds for us to do our good works,” says Kilbride. “That, combined with my endless supply of energy and my passion to serve Maui’s families, makes it very easy for me to make a difference.” Backpack Buddies of Kamalii School helps hungry children by providing nutritional meals and snacks to youth whose primary source of food is the school cafeteria. The organization gives these children backpacks with food items to sustain them until returning to school for a meal. Hospice Maui helps terminally ill patients on Maui with in-home care, grief support and counseling. Sign up for the gold tournament by calling Mulligan’s at 874-1131. To sign up for extreme bocce, contact Kilbride at 264-4289 or by email at pkilbride@tghawaii.com. You can also get registration forms at hospicemaui.org/sharing.html.

MAUI ORAL HEALTH CENTER GETS NEW DENTAL CHAIRS! Somebody bought a lot of smiles this year to the Maui Oral Health Center (MOHC). The center provides affordable and accessible oral/dental health care to the underserved, low-income, uninsured families of Maui. The MOHC opened in 2002 with

Smile! (get it?)

the charitable donation of used equipment from local dentists. The age of the equipment and the variations in models made maintenance and repair expensive and sometimes impossible. But a local foundation that wishes to remain anonymous recently donated $100,000 to the center so it could acquire new dental chairs this year. The new chairs are key to the center so it can continue to provide oral/ dental health care services.

“Everyone on the UHMC Dental Program faculty, the staff and patients for the Maui Oral Health Center would like to express their MAHALO to the donor for this extremely valuable gift,” said Nancy Johnson, UH Maui College’s Allied Health Department Chair. The Maui Oral Health Center is a collaborative project sponsored by the members of the Maui County Dental Health Alliance, University of Hawaii Maui College, the County of Maui, Hui No Ke Ola Pono and the Maui District Health Office. On average, the center serves 800 to 1,000 Maui County residents each month. The MOHC is scheduled to move to a new site on the UH Maui College campus once the new science building has completed construction. The entire dental program will move into the renovated space, bringing the new dental chairs with them.

OPERATION SANDTASTIC RAISES $13,000 During the Annual Business Summit which took place Feb. 9-12, The Elite Hearing Network, one of the largest affiliations of independent hearing care providers in the U.S., held a fundraiser for the Maui National Guard and raised $13,000 with Operation Sandtastic. The event was a sand sculpting competition open only to the 900 attendees and vendor partners at the conference. “The fact that our network members and our vendors chose to spend some of their free time in fabulous Maui to come together and support our military speaks to how important these Guard members are to all of us,” said Paul Harkness, Vice President, Elite Hearing Network. “It was really a thrill to present the check to Melanie Cook of the Friends & Family organization, and Lt. Matthew Driggers from the National Guard. ” Nearly 200 network members participated and a total of $13,000 was donated to Family & Friends of Na Koa E Kapili, which relies entirely on community donations to support deployed soldiers, including the Maui National Guard. Riki Inzano from Art By Riki, a local professional sand sculptor, instructed participants on sand sculpting technique. Finished sculptures were judged by members of the National Guard, Amplifon President Heinz Ruch and Michele Fusco, Amplifon’s senior vice president for medical business operations. “We are so proud of our members and vendor partners who showed their sincere appreciation for the National Guard,” said Ruch. “It’s all too easy to take for granted the sacrifices these soldiers and their families make on our behalf, and giving back to them any way we can is the least we can do.” ■ jen@mauitime.com + @jenrusso To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/1538n3

NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY CHUCK SHEPARD

TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE: ONE CANNIBAL, ONE VAMPIRE Newspapers in Sweden reported in January that two of the country’s most heinous murderers apparently fell in love with each other behind the locked doors of their psychiatric institution and, following a 26-day Internet-chat “courtship,” have decided to marry. Mr. Isakin Jonsson (“the Skara Cannibal”) was convicted of killing, decapitating and eating his girlfriend, and Michelle Gustafsson (“the Vampire Woman”) was convicted of killing a father of four and drinking his blood. Said the love-struck Jonsson to the newspaper Expressen, “I have never met anyone like [Michelle].” The pair will almost certainly remain locked up forever, but Gustafsson, on the Internet, wrote that she hopes they will be released, to live together and “have dogs and pursue our hobbies, piercing and tattoos.”

COMPELLING EXPLANATIONS In December, music teacher Kevin Gausepohl, 37, was charged in Tacoma, Wash., Municipal Court with communicating with a minor for immoral purposes, allegedly convincing a 17-yearold female student that she could sing better if she tried it naked. Gausepohl later told an investigator of his excitement about experimenting at the “human participant level” to determine how sexual arousal affects vocal range. The girl complied with “some of” Gausepohl’s requests, but finally balked and turned him in.

(He was charged, anyway, in January.) And Anthony Spicer, 29, was sentenced in January in Cincinnati after being discovered at an abandoned school among copper pipes that had been cut. He denied prosecutors’ assertions that he was collecting scrap metal–because he said he was actually looking for ghosts, since the school “is supposed to be haunted.”

IRONY Equity Lifestyle Properties of Chicago fired receptionist Sharon Smiley after 10 years’ service because she violated company policy by declining to stop working during her lunch hour. (The company’s strict policy is apparently based on avoiding liability for overtime pay, but Smiley had in fact clocked out for lunch while remaining at her desk.) Smiley subsequently applied for unemployment benefits, but the administrator denied them because the firing was for insubordination. However, in January, a state appeals court granted the benefits.

RACE RELATIONS A South Carolina circuit court ruled in December that the sales contract on a former theater in downtown Laurens, S.C., was binding and that the rightful owner is the African-American-head-

ed New Beginning Missionary Baptist Church– even though the property’s only current tenant is the Redneck Shop, which features Confederacy and Ku Klux Klan merchandise. New Beginnings purchased the church in 1997 from a Klan member who was unloading it because of a personal riff with the head klansman and who wanted it back after they reconciled.

THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX Rock Dagenais, 26, pleaded guilty recently to weapons charges after creating a siege by bringing a knife, a sawed-off rifle and 100 rounds of ammunition to a Quebec elementary school. He eventually surrendered peacefully and said he was only trying to send the kids a message not to disrespect each other by bullying. And Daniel Whitaker has been hospitalized in Indianapolis ever since November when he drove up the steps of the Indiana War Memorial with a gun, gasoline and an American flag and set the steps on fire. In an interview in December, he told WRTV that he was only trying to get everyone’s attention so they would think of Jesus Christ and “love each other.”

o the county crew that fixed the sign that some jerk ran over at Iao Valley road by the fork, good job! And good job of leaving all the rubbish from the old sign lying on the side of the road, plastic, metal pieces all over. Would have taken 2 minutes to sweep up. Is there a different county crew for this simple job? A week or so later the trash is still there. This is why Oahu workers take so many local jobs.

LATEST HUMAN RIGHTS Librarians typically can shush patrons whose conversation disturbs others, but, at least in Washington state, librarians are powerless to prevent another “disturbance”–when a pornography user’s computer screen disgusts other library patrons who inadvertently glimpse it. A visitor to the Seattle Public Library complained in February that the librarian said she was bound by a 2010 state supreme court decision upholding the right of consumers of otherwise-legal pornography not to be censored.

LEAST COMPETENT SPIES The embarrassing disclosure in November by the Lebanon-based terrorist organization Hezbollah, of the CIA’s major clandestine operations in Beirut, likely resulted in the deaths of more than a dozen anti-Hezbollah CIA “assets,” according to ABC News reports. Among the details made public by Hezbollah was that it learned of the agents’ meetings with the potential “assets” (which took place at a Beirut Pizza Hut restaurant) by intercepting agents’ email messages that used the sly, stealthy “code” word “PIZZA.”

BRIGHT IDEAS South Korea’s Customs Service arrested eight men in January for a 2010 scheme to smuggle gold into Japan without paying import fees. The smugglers allegedly broke down gold bars into small beads and brought them in in their rectums. And in an advertising campaign in December for a new line of extreme push-up bras, the Dutch department store Hema hired as its fashion model the androgynous (but flatchested) superstar Andrej Pejic. ■ chuck@mauitime.com To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/1538n4

ikhail Tassi is sitting at his own bar, the South Shore Tiki Lounge in Kihei, talking about what has become the hottest conversation topic in town. “I ran the numbers, and about 40 percent of our nightly revenue comes after 10pm,” he said. It’s a significant percentage. Tiki Lounge is a popular bar and restaurant that features live music at sunset and dancing to DJs every night. It’s just one of nine establishments that hold liquor licenses at the Kihei Kalama Village (KKV), a complex of bars, restaurants and shops colloquially known as the Barmuda Triangle. But the days of the Triangle being one of the premier nightclub destinations on the island may be rapidly coming to a close. On March 14, the Maui County Liquor Commission will hold a public hearing on whether it should prohibit all nightly entertainment past 10pm in the Triangle. This wouldn’t be a mere supplemental restriction added to liquor licenses based in the Triangle–the Liquor Commission is considering writing the restriction into the actual county liquor laws. The new restriction appears on page 36 of the 82-page package of new liquor rule language the Liquor Commission is considering. Much of that language deals with regulations governing things like “condotels” (condo-like vacation rentals), which didn’t really exist a decade ago.

10

MARCH 8, 2012

“Most of it is statutory,” said LC Director Franklyn Silva of the proposed language. “We’re just now catching up and putting it in the rules.” The Triangle portion is part of Section 08-101-27 dealing with various permits licensees would need if they want to have trade shows, outside warehousing, etc. If this passes, the rule governing dance permits would now read as follows (new language is italicized): “Area(s) for music, entertainment, and dancing[;] , provided that no food, beverages, or empty service containers shall be allowed on the approved areas for dancing; and provided further that all music, dancing, and entertainment shall cease not later than 10 p.m. for licensees located in the Kihei Kalama Village complex identified by TMK No. (2) 3-9- 003-007-0000;” Silva said this is happening because of complaints from people who live around the Triangle. “We’ve had lots of complaints from the surrounding neighbors,” said Silva. “The police complained, too, about assaults in the parking lot.” On Mar. 2, I emailed Lt. Wayne Ibarra, the Maui Police Department’s spokesman, asking for more details on the MPD’s concerns over the Triangle. That day he forwarded my request for comment to Captain Tivoli Faaumu, the Kihei Commander, but I didn’t received a response by press time. According to LC Chief Enforcement Officer Bill Pacheco, the department has received nine noise complaints from near-

by residents against licensees at the Triangle since July 2010 (older complaints, Pacheco explained, were purged for housekeeping reasons). Pacheco added that no citations resulted from the complaints, though he said he couldn’t say where exactly the complaints came from. “It’s a very tight, geographically small area,” Pacheco said. “Any one night, there’s always more than one licensee going off at any time. There are many factors when you measure sound– we don’t want to measure [background] traffic and attribute it to the licensee. Because of that, we’re not able to pinpoint any one licensee. Sometimes it’s even hard for the complaintant to pinpoint where the noise is coming from. We can’t measure it [the noise]. So we have to find other ways to address it.” Silva also said that the commission may or may not make a final decision on the Triangle at the March 14 hearing. However, if they do vote for the 10pm restriction, it wouldn’t become county law unless approved by Mayor Alan Arakawa. And Arakawa hasn’t been shy about saying that he sides with the LC. During an interview on K-Rock 97.3 FM’s “The A-Train” show on March 2, Arakawa said the whole problem with the Triangle is occurring because of individuals who cannot “behave themselves” and just need to “grow up.” Needless to say, establishment owners in the Triangle are terrified of what might happen if the commission approves the 10pm restriction. “We’ll go out of business,” Ambrosia owner Candice Seti told


s... s e n i s bu f o t ur u o o f o o g t .” “We’ll -five percen after 10pm Eighty ss happens er n w o e a i ros b busin m A , eti S e c i d -Can me. “Eighty-five percent of our business happens after 10pm.” Ambrosia, which is a bar only, is in an especially dire position. As for Tiki Lounge, which is also a restaurant, Tassi estimates that he’d have to cut 18 employees if the restriction went into effect, as well as a dozen musicians. But even shops in the Triangle that have nothing to do with live music or alcohol are scared. And outraged. “This is huge, huge,” said Lila Sherman, the owner of the Love Shack, an adult store in the heart of the Triangle. “Nobody will come here anymore. Nothing starts until 10, and the Liquor Commission knows that. If you do this for one bar, you do it for all. You don’t use your power to wipe out just some people.” According to Seti, who has talked over the issue extensively with other Triangle bar and restaurant owners, there is huge money and tons of jobs at stake. “Millions of dollars and hundreds of jobs would be lost,” she said, if the LC bans live entertainment after 10pm. Jeff Gerard, the vice president of MW Group, which manages the Triangle, confirmed that the 10pm restriction would cost the bars and restaurants there tremendously. According to numbers he ran, Lulu’s, Kahale’s, Three’s, Tiki Lounge, Ambrosia, Life’s a Beach and Dog & Duck would collectively suffer the loss of 105 jobs (including musicians), $1,522,694 in lost pay to employees and musicians and $3,047,750 in lost annual sales revenue. Seti also helped circulate an online petition that collected signatures from people opposed to the proposed rule change. “A lot of people who’ve signed the petition are frequent tourists,” she said. “They chose to come to Kihei because of the tropical beach feel, but also because of the nightlife. If there’s no nightlife, they said, they’ll vacation elsewhere.” At least one Triangle bar owner, who asked that we not use his name, has dealt with the LC over noise complaints before.

“We had complaints,” the owner said. “The inspector came out with a decibel meter, but we had one of our own. We went outside one night when the band was playing and the inspector looked at the meter and said, ‘See? You’re too loud.’ But then the band stopped playing, and the meter stayed where it was. It turned out the compressors on the roof of Foodland were causing the noise the meter was picking up. Nobody said anything to me after that.” It’s very important to recognize here that the Triangle ultimately became “the Triangle”–the island’s most densely packed

Every time a liquor license applicant goes before the commission, a staff member will read a report into the record stating exactly how many similar licenses are already nearby, as well as the presence of any churches or schools within a 500-foot radius. For years, Liquor Commissioners slept through these reports, paying little attention to location data. Coming back now, suddenly incensed that so many bars are packed into such a tight area, and start writing special license restrictions that penalize licensees because of their TMK number, is the

height of hypocrisy. This is also not the first time the Triangle as a whole has been on the Liquor Commission’s radar screen. Back in the summer of 2007, the Commission contemplated requiring a midnight closure for all liquor licensees at the Triangle. “That’s a bad area,” Silva told the commission at the time. “That’s Indian Country.” Then, as now, the Maui Police said a crime wave was plaguing the Triangle and “draining” their available resources. The problem, MPD officers told the Commission, was that “there are too many bars in a small area.” The commissioners bristled at the implied dig at them, replying that maybe the cops should just lobby the mayor for more money. In the end, the Triangle’s owners and management hired a private security firm (which is still active there today) and calmed down the crime situation, though the commission still placed some restrictions on Lulu’s–“because [the building is] kind of open,” Silva said. What happens at the LC hearing on Mar. 14, though, is anyone’s guess. Seti and Tassi told me they were rounding up people to attend the hearing, and it’s certainly possible they’ll pack the hearing chamber with owners, employees, musicians and patrons (it’s similarly likely that residents from nearby homes and apartment complexes will show up, too). As far as the Triangle bar owner who requested anonymity is concerned, he’s not sure what he’ll do. “It would definitely hurt our business, but I don’t know what choice we have,” he said. “I don’t particularly like it, but what choice do we have?” ■ anthoney@mauitime.com + apignataro To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/1538L

Italian Done Right

Fabiani’s Bakery and Pizzeria is simply delicious BY JEN RUSSO onto them. There are also large family style tables with benches, and it looks like they’re working on an The Fabianis, Gino, Lorenzo, and Michelle outdoor dining area that served as my daughter’s fenced in play area. Thank goodness, too, because after the pastries I fed her she had some steam to burn off. The menu is simple but makes its point with every dish. They have fresh baked goods and pastries, sandwiches, salads, pasta and pizza. Each item is executed well. The basil-infused olive oil in the caprese is a nice touch, as are the local Zuhair tomatoes. These are the kinds of touches that are put on just about everything on the menu. Michelle, a graduate of Johnson and Wales culinary academy, is an accomplished baker, having been a pastry chef for Longhi’s, Grand Wailea and the Oyster Bar. “Is that a cheesecake?” I asked her of one dessert. “No,” she beamed. “It’s called a ‘Bee Sting.’ Caramelized almond crust on top. That’s Bavarian creme inside.” PHOTOS BY SEAN MICHAEL HOWER Michelle says she loves making the desserts, which change every day. They bake all their own bread, from the foccacia to the brioche buns for the burgers to the New York style bagels.

My linguini with clams came just how I like, with thick, juicy clams in the shell, a white wine butter sauce with bits of fresh flat leaf parsley and perfect al dente pasta. I asked Lorenzo if he makes his own pasta. “Not yet,” he said. “Not the linguine. The lasagna we do.” I couldn’t help ordering “Lorenzo’s Garlic Bread,” that says “it’s just like Mama used to make.” I pictured Lorenzo’s mama making this delicious buttery garlicky foccacia toast to go with her pasta, and wondered what Lorenzo might think of my mama who made rice, but never bread like this. The tako carpaccio is a stunning dish, one Lorenzo has taken from home in Italy’s Cinque Terre region. I love eating octopus but have never had it served like this. Paper thin slices of tako are drizzled with the same green basil-infused olive oil also seen in the caprese and then diced local tomato, pine nuts and fresh basil are sprinkled over it. I poked one round edge with a fork tine and rolled the whole business up around the utensil and bit. The seafood’s usual chewy bite is masked by the micro thin slice, which gives way to crunchy pine nuts and billowy basil aroma. “I admit I didn’t want them to open another restaurant here at first, but now I am happy,” Marlene Rivera told me. “I am here everyday. I love their food.” ■ jen@mauitime.com + @jenrusso

Talking Story With Chef Sheldon Simeon BY JEN RUSSO about utilizing in the kitchen? SIMEON: The taro from our very own Hoaloha Farms. Bobby Pahia is doing an amazing job of cultivating some of the best looking crops Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever seen up in Waikapu and Wailuku. We make our own poi at Old Lahaina Luau and Aloha Mixed Plate. I have taro chips and taro vinaigrettes, and you will see taro dishes as a special of the day at Star Noodle and Leodaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s.

Sheldon Simeon

M

aui Chef Sheldon Simeon is more than a rising star in food. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty much on a roll right now when it comes to being nominated and recognized in the industry. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s responsible for the amazing menus at Star Noodle and Leodaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kitchen and Pie Shop but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also just a humble local boy from the Big Island. So when he contacted me with his latest nomination for Food and Wine Magazineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Best New Chef 2012,â&#x20AC;? an award that honors talented innovators who have run their own kitchen for five years or less, I was thrilled. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only nominee representing Hawaii nei, and he joins nine other chef nominees for the Northwest and Pacific Region. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a real people's choice award, and you can vote at foodandwine.com/peoples-bnc. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up against 99 other chefs and the winner will be announced on Mar. 12, 2012. In the meantime, we got Chef Simeon to answer a few juicy questions about food and beverage on Maui. MAUITIME: Congratulations on this Food & Wine â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Best New Chefâ&#x20AC;? nomination! What are some of your other accolades?

No shame, Chef! Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure winning Best of Maui best chef and best new restaurant back to back is one of your proudest moments, but how do you define success as a chef on Maui? SIMEON: The ability to showcase local ingredients and incorporate local culture into your food. The food scene here on Maui is constantly growing. Just as important as the sightseeing and activities, visitors are planning their stay here around, â&#x20AC;&#x153;where are we gonna eat?â&#x20AC;? As a chef, if I am able to have someone maybe taste a super sweet Olowalu tomato or eat raw ahi or experience local flavor combinations that they otherwise wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have anywhere else, I would feel that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve contributed as a chef here on Maui. MT: What dishes are you most proud of on your menus at Star Noodle and Leodaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s? SIMEON: The Pohole Salad. This dish reflects my homegrown roots of Hilo. MT: Ok, Star Noodleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pohole Salad is truly amazing. Any other dishes that stand out? SIMEON: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m also proud of the fresh made noodles that we make in house. Just the process of making our noodles, from carefully mixing in the water to the flour, to rolling it out on our 75-year-old noodle machine, to drying it overnight, cooking it all fresh in the morning, to hand drying it, makes it very special. MT: What Maui ingredients are you fired up

MT: What makes cooking a pleasure more than a job for you? SIMEON: Cooking to me is very intimate. You touch it, smell it, taste it. I love that I get to share that moment when someone tastes your food. Food always conjures up memories. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to hope itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mostly positive when tasting my food, but nothing is more satisfying to me than someone having the reaction of â&#x20AC;&#x153;this reminds me of my childhoodâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cookingâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201C;something along those lines. MT: Do you still work in the kitchen a lot? SIMEON: I do still get in the kitchen and cook a bit. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what like I to call, â&#x20AC;&#x153;rubbing elbows with the crew.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still important to me to be able to constantly mentor by example. However, with the popularity of Star Noodle and Leodaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, there has been a rise of responsibilities outside of the kitchen. MT: Do you cook at home? SIMEON: I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to cook at home as much as Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like too. My wife Janice does most of the cooking for the family. But when we do have the chance to have company over at the house I love to throw down. I enjoy nothing more than cooking over the hibachi... of course, with a nice, cold beverage in hand. MT: Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your favorite thing to eat if you are not cooking? Who makes it? SIMEON: Raw Crab and Opihi. Usually I will be eating these at some kind of local party like a first baby luau or graduation party. But I will go to town on Raw Crab and Opihi! â&#x2013; jen@mauitime.com + @jenrusso

DIVERSIONS, DALLIANCES & DATES BY ANU YAGI

THURSDAY, MARCH 8 TEA PARTY TIME – Nigh onto 25 years ago, I became a tea party enthusiast.. But not for all the tea in China would I have guessed that the default pastime of little girls ng up, would’ve gained so much popularity in years of late! I guess everyone loves dressing hanging out with their BFFs and using their imagination. Every second Thursday of the month, TEA Party Maui gets together for their general monthly meeting to “seek ways to become more involved in the policies that affect our ohana.” However, convening on a Kahului street corner, to me, feels a little like that Steve Buscemi scene in Con Air (1997)–but to each her own cup of tea, right? Free. Every second Thu., 6-7:30pm. Corner of Alamaha St. and Papa Pl., Kahului (look for the American flag); teapartymaui.com

HORN TOOTIN’ WITH THE SPRING WIND QUINTET – Considered “a major force in the development of chamber music in Hawaii,” the Spring Wind Quintet is recognized as one of the nation’s leading wind quintets. This Thursday evening, the ensemble–comprised of Claire Butin (flute), J. Scott Janusch (oboe), James Moffitt (clarinet), Jonathan Parrish (horn), and Marsha Schweitzer (bassoon)–performs a selection of classical music as well as arrangements of traditional Hawaiian songs. The program also includes demonstrations of how each instrument’s sound is made, how the quintet performs together, and a Q&A session. Produced by the UH-Manoa Outreach College’s Statewide Cultural Extension Program, this 45-minute program is partially funded by the Maui Friends of the Library. Free. 6:30pm. Wailuku Public Library (251 High St.); 243-5766; librarieshawaii.org

FRIDAY, MARCH 9 MAPPING OF LAHAINA EXHIBIT + THE STORY OF HAWAII – Fri. & Sat., Mar. 9-10. Hey, remember that cover story last October where our editor Anthony Pignataro wrote about The Mapping of Hawaii traveling exhibit at the Bailey House Museum (augmented by the killer hand p painted cover art by MauiTime’s own Scrappers)? Well, it gets better! The delightfully erudite historian Bryant Neal (the man behind all this historic goodness) is opening a museum in Ma‘alaea, and the soft opening’s this weekend. Guest speaker Riley Moffat, author and BYU map historian, returns to Maui to give illustrated talk on the mapping of Lahaina town (covering the years 1819 to 1975), highlighting fascinating insurance maps enlarged and aggregated for the very first time, plus a priceless Lahainaluna Atlas, on view for the first time in a century. The first of these presentations is on Friday (Mar. 9, 7:30pm), on the Baldwin Home Museum’s lawn (located on the corner of Front Street and Dickenson), followed by a gallery reception on Saturday, (Mar. 10, 3-6:30pm) at the Ma‘alaea Harbor Shops. On Saturday, in addition to Moffat’s lecture, Neal will provide an interpretive illustrated tour through the history of the i islands–which speaks to just what makes this museum so special. Because sure, you can get all you n need to know about Hawaii’s aboriginal history if you travel to the Oahu’s Bishop Museum, and insight in missionary and plantation history from the Bailey House and Sugar Museum, respectively–but where into c you get an overview from Polynesian migration up to World War II? Nowhere–until now. Neal’s can un unprecedented collection of antique and vintage maps, ephemera and artifacts (like vibrant menus from M Matson’s SS Lurline and rare WWII propaganda from Japan) gives history enthusiasts the chance to study rarely seen items first hand. mappingofhawaii.com; 283-3576

OVERTONE IN CONCERT– NCERT– Fri., Mar. 9. The South African nd intervocal band Overtone found ng national fame after being me discovered by part-time Mauians Dina and Clint Eastwood, and contributing fives songs to the soundtrack for Invictus (2009). Impressively, this six-member a cappella group (not to be confused with The Overtones–the similar, but slightly slicker, UK-based vocal harmony group) has a repertoire of more than 100 songs and sings in four languages–English, Zulu, Afrikaans and a bit of Hindi. The group is now the subject of a new television show, being shot partially on Maui, and MACC patrons should note Overtone’s concert will be filmed for broadcast. $25 / $45 VIP (includes meet-and-greet with artists after the show). 7:30pm. McCoy Studio Theater, MACC (One Cameron Way, Kahului); 242 SHOW (7469); mauiarts.org / overtoneband.com

SATURDAY, MARCH 10 DON’T FORGET TO BRING A TOWEL: SURF, DANCE AND RAGE AT “SOUND SPLASH” – This Saturday, X-Klusive Sounds Productions presents an alcohol-and drug-free rager for folks 16-to 21-years-old at Kihei’s Maui Big Wave. Flowboarding (i.e. surfing artificial waves which are created by a fast-flowing layer of water, several inches thick, pumped over a substrate made to mimic the shape of ocean waves) might seem nonsensical on the shores of an island chain that invented the sport of surfing. But think of it this way: you can’t surf the sea with dope DJs like Kollision, Gemini, A.P and Buddha still within earshot–like you can at Saturday’s “Sound Splash” event–nor can you do so at night without na wahine missing your sweet tricks and epic fails. Not to mention the fact that it typically costs $30-$50 per hour to just to flowboard, whereas this event costs but a pittance plus comes with a party. Presale passes available at Solid Clothing Company. Pre-sale: $6 party pass / $10 1-hour surf + party pass / Door: $10 party pass / $15 1-hour surf + party pass. 6-11pm. Maui Big Wave (22 Alahele Pl., Kihei); facebook.com/djkollision

DJ MARQUES WYATT HEADLINES “RITUAL MAUI” WITH AMARA PAGANO AND “MAUI GETS DEEP” WITH MARASCO – Marques Wyatt is a West Coast legend and a seminal force in the United States’ DJ scene. Known for turning huge dance floors into an intimate ritual, he’s now committed to merging his worlds of music, yoga and other spiritual practices via consciousness-driven events. This Saturday, Wyatt and “conscious dance facilitator” Amara Pagano are joining forces to present “RITUAL Maui,” a rhythmic healing journey through music and sacred dance. Open to everyone, this workshop–held at Studio Maui–invites you to journey within to “discover your own unique moving meditation.” Later that night, follow Wyatt further Upcountry to Casanova for “Maui Gets Deep,” featuring Maui’s own DJ Marasco. Many associate Wyatt with “DEEP,” the illustrious dance event (13 years running) that he nurtured in his hometown of Los Angeles. So if you’re like Wyatt and “hunger for new sounds, technical precision and notions of spiritual and political enlightenment through sound and movement,” check out these shows. Ritual Maui: $15 advance / $20 door. 7:30-9:30pm. Studio Maui (Haiku Marketplace, 810 Haiku Rd.); 575-9390; thestudiomaui.com / Maui Gets Deep: $20. 9:30pm-1:30am. Casanova (1188 Makawao Ave.); 572-0220; casanovamaui.com

SUNDAY, MARCH 11 LAHAINA WHALE AND OCEAN ARTS FESTIVAL – Sat. & Sun., Mar. 10-11. The town formerly known as the whaling capital of the world now celebrates the annual migration of Pacific Humpback whales (harpoonless!) with the Lahaina Whale and Ocean Arts Festival, sponsored by the Lahaina Town Action Committee. This weekend at the Banyan Tree Park, local artists display and sell their best marine-themed art while musicians and hula troupes entertain. Keiki can partake in the ocean art contest and featured touch-pool exhibit by the Maui Ocean Center. Plus, the festival features dozens of events and displays–by such local organizations as Hawaii Ocean Project, Whale Trust and the Hawaiian Island Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary–offering residents and visitors alike the chance to learn more about our wintertime denizens of the deep. Free. 9am-5pm. Banyan Tree Park (Front St., Lahaina); visitlahaina.com

JOHN GROVER BAND AT BULLY’S BURGERS – Paniolo party people all know that Kanaio’s authentic country (Hawaii’s the Western-and Southernmost state, after all). Now, those bad-ass lands have a restaurant that captures its flavor, Bully’s Burgers, located just four miles past Tedeschi Vineyards. Every month, Bully’s features a raucous jam, and this Sun. you can groove to the John Grover Band while grinding on all-natural, free-range beef burgers. No cover. 2pm-dusk. Bully’s Burgers, Triple L Ranch (15900 Piilani Highway); 878-3273; triplelranchmaui.com

MONDAY, MARCH 12 THE BLUES SPIRIT OF MAUI AT HARD ROCK CAFE – If you’ve got a case of the Mondays, fear not. Boogie woogie your blues away at Hard Rock Cafe with The Blues Spirit of Maui, performing every Monday night. But whatever night you might need reprieve from the day’s grind, Hard Rock’s got you covered (without charging you a cover). Tuesday nights feature Kenny Roberts, while Wednes-

TUESDAY, MARCH 13 FREE LECTURE: “A JEWEL IN THE GULF OF MEXICO” BY EMMA HICKERSON – This Tuesday, the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary (HIHWNMS) hosts a free talk by Emma Hickerson, titled “A Jewel in the Gulf of Mexico.” Since 1997, Hickerson has been the research coordinator at the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary (FGBNMS), where her research has focused on both habitat characterization and the collection of highresolution multibeam bathymetry (i.e. the underwater equivalent of hypsometry or typography). Both FGBNMS and HIHWNMS are among the 14 federally designated underwater areas protected by NOAA’s Office of National Marine Sanctuaries. Situated 70 to 115 miles off the coasts of Texas and Louisiana, FGBNMS includes underwater communities that rise from the depths of the Gulf of Mexico atop underwater mountains called salt domes, and is named for the brightly colored sponges, plants and other marine life that call the area home.

Plus, the Hard Rock Rising battle of the bands is now taking place–the perfect time and venue to catch on-the-rise acts. No cover. 8-11pm (21+ after 10pm). Hard Rock Cafe (900 Front St., Lahaina); 667-7400

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14 HOUSE DANCING WORKSHOP WITH HONOLULU’S LYANNE BROOKS + GRAMMY WINNER NADIRAH SHAKOOR WITH DJS CIA AND DEL SOL – Whether you’re looking to up the ante of your already impressive arsenal of bust-able moves or need to peel your pressed-flower self off the club wall, check out the house dancing workshop at Vineyard Street Food Company. Dance instructor Lyanne Brooks is traveling from Honolulu to teach the class, sharing the fun benefits of house music’s “sophisticated version of breakdancing.” And to help you refuel after your workout, you can opt-in for the afterworkshop meal which includes seasonal fruit, assorted cheeses, coconut shrimp with a honey wasabi dip and asparagus wrapped with prosciutto. (As space is limited, be sure to register in advance by emailing soulgasmhawaii@gmail.com.) Later that night, test what you’ve learned at Ambrosia’s late night with the sounds of Grammy Winner Nadirah Shakoor (who’s on Maui thanks to Brooks) plus DJs CIA and Del Sol.

Silent House Of Cards Horror thriller falls apart under close inspection BY BARRY WURST II

Silent House ★★★★★ Rated R/88 Min.

M

any years ago, when I was a child sitting around a camp fire at Camp Maluhia, our camp councilor told us the tale of Guava Man, a short, child-munching monster that would eat kids who slept on the bottom bunk. With a sigh of relief, I realized I was sleeping on the top bunk in my cabin and completely safe, while my buddy on the bottom bunk was going to be a late night snack. But wait, said our camp councilor, there’s more! Turns out there’s another monster who lives in the camp, known as Mango Man, who is so tall, he only eats kids on the top bunk! Well, I was

terrified and my buddies and I slept in shifts that night, keeping an eye out for two abnormally sized monsters named after delicious fruits. The next morning, we realized we’d been had by one of the most ridiculous camp fire ghost stories ever. I thought of this while driving home from Silent House, a ghost story that, the more you talk about it, falls completely apart. It stars Elizabeth Olsen, who gave an extraordinary debut performance last year in Martha Marcy May Marlene. Here she plays Sarah, a young woman assisting her father and uncle as they clean up her childhood home, which is up for sale. We don’t know all the details at first but notice that even though it’s daytime, it’s dark inside the large house since all the windows are covered up. Every door leading outside has a lock on it, as if the house were conspiring to keep visitors inside. Once Sarah loses sight of her father, deep into the darkness and feeling displaced, she starts to hear strange noises... The film is only 88 minutes and has supposedly been filmed in one continuous take, a single shot held for the entire film. I doubt the authenticity of that claim, as there are many moments that could have been spliced

Horror movie cars never run well. into other segments and digital effects can make any optical illusion possible. However, it certainly looks like it was filmed in one take and, for at least the first hour, works as a tense, claustrophobic, well staged exercise. Very little happens at first, just the building of anticipation and suspense as Sarah searches every dark room with a lantern. Yet, not only are we on the edge of our seats, ready for a big scare, but Olsen is so gorgeous that I never minded how the camera keeps her close and the focus of every scene. There’s no loud music to make us jump, but a quiet, brooding score that never manipulates, no on-camera violence and very little blood. A sequence with a flashing Polaroid is spooky and Olsen ably carries the film, acting scared to the point of near-hyperventilation almost the whole time. The problem is the ending–a big disappointment. Neither ambiguous nor worthy of

a good Shyamalan thriller (and there aren’t many of those), the solution to the puzzle is a disaster. It’s overly familiar, ugly instead of scary and undermines the entire movie. The more you think about it, the mystery holding the house just makes no sense. Like a joke with a hilarious set-up but a groaner of a punch line, you’ll walk away hating yourself for getting so worked up over such a meager payoff. The film’s poster says it was “Inspired By True Events.” But so was The Legend of Guava Man. ■ To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/1538f

NEW THIS WEEK

is proof-positive that three egomaniacal high school boys (wait, is that redundant?) with telekinetic superpowers is the stuff of pure horror. 83 min.

A THOUSAND WORDS - PG 13 - Comedy - Think Liar Liar with a New Age twist. Starring Eddie Murphy. 91min.

DR. SUESS’ THE LORAX - R - Horror - Green washing goes to Hollywood with another bastardization of Seussian genius; of what’s meant for the unadulterated page. (PS: Remember, supporters of Tim & Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie must boycott The Lorax!) 94 min.

JOHN CARTER - PG 13 - Sci-Fi - Martian intrigue may not resonate with post-Viking Mission kiddies like it does for generations reared prior (notwithstanding Alfred Russel Wallace’s 1907 critique of Percival Lowell’s “Mars and Its Canals”). Nonetheless, keiki and kupuna alike are sure to be enthralled by John Carter, based on the pulp fantasy series by Edgar Rice Burroughs. For a century these stories have been read “with breathless fascination,” as the venerable Carl Sagan extolled (in his landmark doco series, Cosmos: A Personal Journey; episode five, “Blues for a Red Planet”), “arous[ing] generations of eight-year-olds, myself among them, to wonder whether we ourselves might one day venture to the distant planet Mars.” 132 min. SILENT HOUSE - R - Horror - See this week’s Film Critique. 86 min.

NOW SHOWING ACT OF VALOR - R - Action - A modern war film starring actors plus actual active duty US Navy SEALs and Special Warfare Combatant Crewmen. 101 min. THE ARTIST - PG 13 - Romance - A silent film star grapples with his waning fame as newfangled “talkies” become all the rage. 100 min.

GHOST RIDER: SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE - PG 13 - Action/Fantasy - Excuse me, Mr. Cage? Um, your skull’s on fire... 98 min. GONE - PG 13 - Thriller - Does it matter what this movie’s actually about? No, not really. Face it: if you see this flick it’s only because you wanna oggle Amanda Seyfried. But hey, man–we don’t blame you. 94 min. HUGO - G - Family - Based on American author Brian Selznick’s gorgeous, Caldecott-winning book, The Invention of Hugo Cabret. Starring Ben Kingsley, Sacha Baron Cohen and Jude Law. 127 min. JOURNEY 2: THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND - PG Fantasy/Family - “This is a dopey adventure romp with truly terrible dialogue,” writes Barry Wurst II. Dwane “The Rock” Johnson, Josh Hutcherson, Vanessa Hudgens, Luis Guzman and Michael Caine star. 94 min. PROJECT X - R - Fantasy - This is The Blair Witch Project of pubescent delusion. Watch and wish and live vicariously, if you must. 88 min.

BIG MIRACLE - PG - Family - When whales are trapped in an Arctic Circle neighborhood, who you gonna call? Drew Barrymore! 107 min.

SAFE HOUSE - R - Action/Thriller - Ryan “Wrap” Reynolds stars as a CIA agent who must blitz his way across South Africa–with a fugitive (played by Denzel Washington) in his charge. 115 min.

ed - Barry Wurst II writes, “Arrietty Clock and her father, Pod, are quietly creeping into a home that isn’t theirs, on a mission to steal a block of sugar and tissue paper. It sounds easy and peculiar enough, with the exception of a key detail: the Clocks are no taller than your index finger...” 94 min.

Look, all I care about is that this is Daniel Radcliffe’s first big film since you-know-what–which means I’m finally a small step away from being a paedophilic creep for thinking Harry Potter’s hot. 95 min.

LAHAINA SECOND FRIDAY: THE SOUNDS OF LAHAINA – “Music has always been part of the thread that makes Lahaina a special place in a melodic land of many faces and changes,” say Lahaina Second Friday coordinators. So, March’s events showcase “The Sounds of Lahaina,” through-

out Front St. and its surrounding areas. Here’s the party details:

KULA KID

Where are all the Brown People? BY ANU YAGI

G

o big or go home. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the bumper sticker creed appropriated to all championsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; aspirations. But here in Hawaii, taking whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s big beyond the most isolated archipelago in the world requires both going big while bringing it home; and for more than capitalizing on paradisiacal allure. Without a doubt, The Descendants went bigâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;you can still hear the echo of champagne bottlesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; popâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;but the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s baffling whitewash squandered an unprecedented opportunity for the celluloid indemnification of Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most misunderstood piece of history. With envy tinged pride Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve watched the rise to fame of The Descendants author, Kaui Hart Hemmingsâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;the kanaka maoli, Sarah Lawrence College-educated dazzler whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s everything I wish I was but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be, unless under a kind knife (propitious lobotomy included, obviously). Papers ranging from the San Francisco Bay Guardian to the New York Times praise Hemmings for her â&#x20AC;&#x153;beautiful and blunt proseâ&#x20AC;? and how â&#x20AC;&#x153;her comic sense is finely honed in this refreshingly wry debut novel.â&#x20AC;? With this, Hemmings is the first Hawaiian author to crossover into mainstream acclaim, and the applause is undeniably due. The inescapably palpable buzz of the bookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s film adaptation by Alexander Payne (Sideways, About Schmidt) reached its crescendo with a yard-long list of illustrious noms, resulting in Golden Globe awards for Best Picture and Best Actor (George Clooney, as the fictional Kauai land baron Matt King), and an Oscar for Best Adapted Adapted Screenplay (Nat Faxon, Alexander Payne and Jim Rash), to name just a few. All this, coupled with my abundant hometown pride, had me earnestly hoping that The Descendants would be some sort of

bona fide Dec. 21, 2012 of Hollywoodized Hawaiiâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;a massive shift in perception (or whatever) that would render the wicked world as we know it anew. I hoped it would make evident the farce of flicks like Blue Crush (2002) and 50 First Dates (2004)â&#x20AC;&#x201C;modern manifestations of the cellophane hula-skirted ideal thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been promulgated ever since Elvis-ish daysâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; movies that obscured our isles behind sex-soaked beaches backed by billion dollar resorts. Rob Schneiderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s idiotic Pidgin does not speak for us any more than his brownface looks like us. Slit our wrists and we do not bleed Mai Tais. So after finally swallowing the $18 expense to see the film in theaters (thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10 bucks for entry plus requisite concession, i.e. a bottle-o-vino from Maui Mallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Longs), I was disappointed to find that, like every failed Rapture prediction past and yet to come, The Descendants did not deliver. At least, not like it could or should have. Sure, the opening montage attempted to establish the idea that Hawaiiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the paradise itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oft made out to be. Sure, expert cinematographer Phedon Papamichael captured texturally rich scenes yet unseen by most outside our isles. Sure, I was moved by Clooneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s skillful portrayal of his characterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pathos, and sequences like when Julie Speer (Judy Greer) forgives the comatose Elizabeth King (Patricia Hastie) for adultery. Sure I laughedâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;I even cried (but that ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hard, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a sobbing sucker)â&#x20AC;&#x201C;but I nonetheless left feeling the film was critically wanting. Perhaps I should clarify exactly I think is missing from The Descendants film: color. And yeah, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m talking about race. But for a few token locals barely in the background or with bit parts, everyone was white and richâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;almost to the point of being startling.

And I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t buy the hypothetical argument that this was all somehow supposed to be commentary about Hawaiiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s elite, because that would still require contrast. Neither Hawaiiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history in Hollywood nor The Descendants provides that in any true form. Further, such commentary isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t accurate. Hawaiiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the melting pot of the Pacific; and ask any paleish skinned person on the street (myself included)â&#x20AC;&#x201C;grown or flown, prosperous or otherwiseâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll tell you haoles are something of a minority. Look, I recognize that but for our most visceral morality, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sparse sauce for the goose thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sauce for the gander. My beef with The Decendants movie is my own, and judging by othersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; reviews, one thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not shared. I could acquiesce to the fact that the movieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at least introduced the idea of land development in Hawaii to a larger audience. But for me, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not enough. Because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not asking that filmmakers quintessentially capture Hawaiiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ethnic fugue. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not asking for an all-encompassing history lesson or preachiness about the 1893 overthrow of the sovereign monarchy, our century down that rabbit hole and so on. (Though, the cheap narrative voiceovers couldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve at least managed a tad more substance.) But I am asking that the breadth of our diversity no longer be ignored or trivialized to an adumbration of the truth. The real descendants of Hawaii are a poi dog breed and our transplanted residents make that mix all the more colorful. If Hollywoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to shoot us, would it kill them to do so in authentic technicolor? â&#x2013;

HOROSCOPE

Sign Language BY CAERIEL CRESTIN PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20)

As outgoing as you usually are, most Pisces need a significant amount of alone time to recharge. You become virtually unbearable when you don’t get it. Here’s the problem: you’re not always the best at making sure you take the downtime you need, especially when other people are making demands on your time and attention. Unfortunately, if you don’t take care of your own needs, who the hell will? This isn’t purely about selfishly looking out for number one. Taking care of yourself is also going to make you much better at taking care of everyone else—so make sure you do.

got someone breathing down your neck to make sure you do something “right,” try to remember the feeling, so you can suppress such urges in yourself whenever you’re in charge. You’ve got strong (and often “correct”) ideas about how things should be done, and your intentions in sharing them with others are good and noble. They’re also mightily annoying. Learning to bite your tongue and leave other people to their own (admittedly less efficient and effective) methods is a wonderful lesson—and this week’s experiences should help you master it.

QUIZunderstood ANSWERS

...to questions from page 6

1: B. Sir Can-A-Lot. 2: D. A penny a day. 3: A. Opposing a county plan to remove four Monkeypod trees.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19)

Don’t let emotional bullies manipulate you into behaving out of character. The drama queens in your life should be making your life more entertaining and interesting, not more aggravating and nerve-wracking. If, on balance, their shenanigans are more irritating than delightful, consider sidelining them until they can learn to be less of a drag. Don’t get sucked in to their melodrama. They may make you feel like you have no choice, but you totally do, even if it involves you being ever so slightly harsh; when they begin the theatrics, don’t wait until intermission—just get up and leave the theater. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20)

Other people are not you. Don’t project yourself onto them. Some will fail where you succeeded, and some will succeed where you could not. That doesn’t mean you’re not “right” when you observe that something is overwhelmingly difficult, but being a naysayer and telling someone they can’t do something is a pretty lame (and possibly even mean) thing to do. Don’t be such a downer. Try to offer your support, even if you feel cynical or jealous. Perhaps all they need to flourish is what you might have lacked: someone amazing, like you, who’s willing to help.

What you think are actually “standards” would more accurately be labeled “rules to needlessly limit my life by.” That’s not to say you should abandon all ideas about who or what you want in your life. But you do need to become much, much more flexible regarding them. No one can jump through the series of hoops you’ve set up, and even if there is someone who’s capable, you’ll have no luck getting them to try, because who’d want to be with someone that demanding and particular? Your life’s limitations are completely self-inflicted—and most of them are not actually serving or helping you. Abandon some (or preferably most) of them, and see what magic consequently unfolds. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21)

Sometimes we just have to deal with someone’s drama (because the alternatives are worse). However, this isn’t one of those times. Sure, you’ve tried everything you can think of to minimize the aggravation, and it’s true there’s not much else you can personally do. However, there’s plenty a third party might do to improve the situation (and thus, your overall quality of life). Resist engaging the first person who comes to mind. Instead of aiming for someone who is the most willing, or most available, shoot for the one who is neither of these—but is likely to be the most effective.

Upcountry, Wailuku & South Maui GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20)

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21)

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22)

Please, never feel like you’re trapped in a situation. Unless you’re duct-taped to a chair in someone’s basement, you have options and choices. They may not always be ideal or even feel tolerable, but they’re there. Telling yourself you don’t have any alternative is a sad story that plays handily right into your martyr complex. Stop repeating that pathetic tale. You’re stronger and more resourceful than that, and even if you’re not enthusiastic about the paths immediately available to you, you’re certainly capable of pursuing them and getting out of the lame circumstances you’ve felt stuck in. Quit whining and get to it. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22)

People change. Sometimes those changes are temporary, sometimes they’re for good. Being able to figure out which is which is an important skill for you to cultivate. If you like the changes—and a reversion to someone’s old habits would be a deal-breaker, for instance—knowing whether or not they can be counted on is really valuable information. And if you don’t like the changes, being sure things will be back to normal in a month or two will help you “stick it out” instead of freaking out. This week, try to notice the differences between the two kinds of transformations—being able to accurately tell which is which will help you make better decisions in the month to come. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22)

Being micro-managed sucks, doesn’t it? The next time you’ve

Animals and humans alike react violently when they feel cornered or trapped. You can’t blame a dog for biting you if he feels like he has no other choice—if, say, he’d rather run but doesn’t have that option. Be aware of the situations you’re putting others in. Even if they actually have other “outs,” some people may feel like they’re boxed in, anyway, and consequently could lash out in surprising and probably unpleasant ways. You can avoid these situations with clear communication and being careful to put yourself in others’ shoes before you make demands. Have you done that? This week, be sure—before you get into biting range. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19)

Collaborating with other people requires sharing control—something that’s not always easy for you. Here’s the quandary. You know by maintaining full control over something you can make it at least reasonably successful. By sharing that power, you run the risk of utter failure, or at least something less successful than if you’d just maintained a firm grasp of the situation. However, you also create the possibility of the end result being something greater and cooler than you ever imagined. Isn’t that worth the risk, even though it might be frightening? It’s a trade-off, to be sure—but one that’s worth attempting, this week, and in the weeks to come. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18)

It’s great to have a plan, but please try to think of it as “plan b” instead of “the plan.” This should be your fallback scenario, the thing you do if nothing better, more immediate, or more compelling happens. Since life has an occasional tendency to throw surprises your way, trying to steer things back onto your predetermined course will only be exhausting and mostly pointless. Going with the flow is a powerful tool. That doesn’t mean you need to let the current carry you wherever it wants—feel free to steer! But trying to make this the best and most successful ride, in the moment, is not the same thing as trying to make this into the ride you’d previously imagined.

So their methods aren’t your methods. Instead of rejecting them purely on that basis, consider this: are their techniques reasonably effective (even if they’re not as “good” in some way as yours)? Are they being ethical and more or less reasonable? If so, then stop condemning them just because they don’t do things the way you do or think they ought to. You did your honorable duty, by clearly stating your opinion, once—and that’s plenty. Now you have a clear choice: stay and help them out, their way—or just get out of the way.
