READER FEEDBACK BY READERS LIKE YOU

TURNS OUT MATEO LOVES OPEN MEETINGS AFTER ALL

In its March 2 issue, MauiTime called

attention to my testimony on open-government issues during this year’s State Legislative Session. But the story on my testimony in support of House Bill (“HB”) 2742 left a false impression of my views. My record shows that I support transparency and public participation in government. When it enacted the Sunshine Law, the Legislature declared that “it is the policy of this State that the formation and conduct of public policy–the discussions, deliberations, decisions, and action of governmental agencies–shall be conducted as openly as possible.” I support this policy. However, interpretations of the Sunshine Law by the Office of Information Practices (“OIP”) have often had the opposite effect, resulting in less openness and diminishing the public’s access to Council members. A classic example is OIP’s advice that Council members shouldn’t jointly participate in community meetings or educational seminars. The public wants elected officials to attend such gatherings. What better use of a Council member’s time could there be than interacting with constituents or hearing from experts? But the Sunshine Law doesn’t allow Council members to do this without risk of criminal penalties, at least under OIP’s interpretation. Contrary to MauiTime’s heretical accusations, my support for HB 2742 has nothing to do with “hidden agendas and secret lobbying,” or an aversion to quorum requirements or properly noticed agendas. I have always promoted openness in government and public participation in the legislative process. As I see it, the crux of the debate is not the wisdom of the policy itself, but addressing the unrealistic belief that a legislative body can respond effectively to its constituency within the confines of the Sunshine Law as presently worded and interpreted. The OIP has acknowledged that the Sunshine Law can be improved to allow greater flexibility in its application, fostering rather than quelling openness. The OIP has introduced legislation to change the law (Senate Bill 2859), which I have also supported on multiple occasions this year because I believe it would make Council members more accessible to our constituents.

I have a good working relationship with the new OIP Director, attorney Cheryl Kakazu Park, and her staff. We sometimes disagree, but she’s a progressive thinker who’s open to new ways to promote open government. I invited her and OIP staff attorney, Jennifer Z. Brooks, to attend last year’s Hawaii State Association of Counties conference, hosted by the Maui County Council. Partly based on discussion at the conference, the OIP proposed amending the Sunshine Law to expressly authorize Council members to conduct official business via social media like Facebook and Twitter. Here are just a few specific examples of my support for open government: • Under my leadership, the Council has put more documents on the County website than at any time in the past. • Under my leadership, the Council and its committees have always given more speaking time to members of the public than required by the Sunshine Law. • As Chair, I have encouraged Council committees to conduct public meetings in all areas of the County–including remote areas like Hana, Lanai and Molokai–bringing Council members and legislative issues directly to residents. • Under my leadership, this Council listens. At many meetings public testimony directly leads to amendments or other legislative action. MauiTime incorrectly told its readers that the Council doesn’t value testimony (Jan. 9). Anyone who comes to the Chamber to attend a meeting–or turns on Akaku to watch a meeting–will quickly see that the Council encourages and welcomes public testimony. Come on in. -Danny Mateo, Council Chair



Anthony Pignataro responds: Forgive me for interpreting your written statement in support of HB 2742 (which would exempt the Maui County Council from the Sunshine Law) that “the State Legislature was wise to exempt itself from the Sunshine Law, and should give the same consideration to the county councils” as meaning that you didn’t care for the Sunshine Law, which many good government advocates like Common Cause believe is doing a fine job exactly as it’s written. My bad.

Talk of the Island

BY ANTHONY PIGNATARO

Silva as explaining. “The owner would like a hostess license to enable her to better compete with other nearby hostess bars.” So to recap: a handful of residents complain about noise in the Kihei Kalama Village over the course of years, and the LC considers banning all live entertainment in the complex after 10pm. But when a single bar owner complains about not not being able to compete with nearby hostess bars, the LC changes its rules so now virtually any bar can employ hostesses. Man, the LC really loves its hostess bars.

Mayor Alan Arakawa with Harlem Globetrotter Anthony "Buckets" Blakes the day before the big county budget address

LC UNCORKS BOTTLE OF HOSTESS BARS

I guess it makes perfect sense that on the same day as the big hearing on the future of post-10pm live entertainment at the Triangle in Kihei, the Maui County Liquor Commission completely liberalized its policies on hostess bars (for those unschooled in the term, a “hostess bar” is an establishment in which employees–usually very attractive, very young Asian women–are paid to sit, chat and otherwise flirt with customers, though without themselves imbibing alcohol). Before the Mar. 14 hearing, the LC capped the number of such bars in the county at 12, all of which are currently located in Kahului and Wailuku. After the hearing (subject to final approval by Maui County Mayor Alan Arakawa), there will no longer be any cap whatsoever on hostess bars. The bars, which typically offer customers karaoke as well as young female companionship, are far from glamorous. In 2005, MauiTime had a reporter visit a few hostess bars and write about what he found. “Some girls get tricked into it,” one hostess told reporter Barukh Shalev, who wrote about his experiences in the July 14, 2005 story “What it’s like to work in Wailuku’s hostess bars.” “They come from Korea and think they are coming into something glamorous, or they will meet their husband and get citizenship. They end up having to stay for months and months to recoup the bar owners for their plane ticket here. Lots of them are illegal and paranoid about getting deported. Their families think they are in school in America.” Anyway, on Mar. 23, the Maui News ran a story on the new capless hostess bar rule. The reason for the change, according to LC Director Franklyn Silva, was unique. “A bar owner in Wailuku has been the most recent person to object to the cap,” the Maui News reported



NEW COUNTY BUDGET

Oh joy, it’s budget time again. Us journalists, who typically look upon numbers and math with the same glazed eyes that come from trying to read Sanskrit, dread this time of the year. But budget stories are among the most important that we write, since they deal with the fundamental importance of government: how much money are they bringing in, and what are they going to do with it. Unless you’re some kind of political junkie, budget speeches, hearings and budgets themselves are unbelievably dry. They’re a mix of accounting language, platitudes about making “hard choices” and endless columns of figures. This year’s was no exception, with Mayor Arakawa once again speaking on Friday, Mar. 23 about “being bold.” According to Arakawa, putting to-

Sometimes that’s what ‘bold’ means. We can’t invest in our future if we hide our money under a rock. So let’s be bold and invest in our community and forge our own destiny.” The shining light in writing about budgets on Maui is that all the rules that supposedly govern mainland poli“There is a misconception that Japanese tics don’t apply out here.

NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY CHUCK SHEPARD

WHO KNEW RESTROOMS WERE SO COMPLICATED?

The multicultural Macquarie University, in suburban Sydney, Australia, said its restroom posters, installed last year, have been successful in instilling toilet etiquette. The linedthrough figure of a user squatting on top of a toilet seat was especially helpful, apparently. Complaints of unsanitariness were such that some students were timing their classes to use restrooms in a nearby mall instead. (Lest anyone believe the problem is confined to multicultural institutions, a recent memo by the 785-member Lewis Brisbois law firm in San Francisco instructed employees to clean urine from toilet seats, to always take the farthest stalls or urinals available, to mask sounds by toilet-flushing (if desired), and to not make eye contact in the restroom.



CAN’T POSSIBLY BE TRUE

Louis Helmburg III filed a lawsuit in Huntington, W.Va., in February against the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity and its member Travis Hughes for injuries Helmburg suffered in May 2011 when he fell off a deck at the fraternity house. He had been startled and fallen backward off the rail-less deck after Hughes attempted to fire a bottle rocket “out of his anus”–and the rocket, instead, exploded in place. (The lawsuit does not refer to Hughes’ injuries.)



JUST MESSED UP

U.S. Immigration agents in a $160,000 Chevy Suburban that had been custom-designed and armored specifically to protect agents from roadside kidnappings became sitting ducks last year when kidnappers forced the vehicle off the road near San Luis Potosi, Mexico, and got the door open briefly, enabling them to fire 100 rounds and kill one of the two agents inside. According to a February Washington Post report, the Department of Homeland Security had failed to modify the vehicle’s factory setting that popped open the door locks automatically whenever the driver shifts into “Park.”



MIND-NUMBING DEFENSE

When Rose Marks and her extended family of Romanian-Gypsy “psychics” were indicted last year for a 20-year-run of duping South Floridians out of as much as $40 million, victims of the clan were elated that justice might be at hand. (A typical scam, according to prosecutors, was to take a client’s cash, “to pray over it,” promising its return but somehow figuring out how to keep it.) But in December, the Markses’ attorneys reported that “several” of the so-called victims had begun to work with them to help clear the family, including one who reportedly paid Rose over time $150,000. According to the lawyers, these “victims” call the Markses “friends,” “life coaches” and “confidants,” rather than swindlers.



INEXPLICABLE

David Myrland, an anti-government “sovereign” now serving three years in federal prison

for threatening the mayor of Kirkland, Wash., filed a federal lawsuit in February accusing various officials of conspiracy–by the manipulation of bad grammar, i.e., “backwards-correct-syntaxing-modification fraud,” according to Seattle Weekly. Each word of the original complaint, coded by Myrland as to part of speech, “proves” to him that the complaint was “fraudulent” and “handicapping.” (Random sentence from Myrland’s filing: “For the WORDS OF an ADVERB-SYNTAX-GRAMMAR-MODIFICATIONS ARE with an USE of the SYNTAX-GRAMMAR with the VOID of the POSITIONAL-LODIAL-FACT-PHRASE with the SINGLE-WORD-MODIFIER AS THE: A, AS, AT, AM, BECAUSE (many words omitted) FACT by the VASSALEES.”) “Sovereigns” generally reject the federal government, and Myrland did not explain why he expected a federal judge would have authority to help him.

UNCLEAR ON THE CONCEPT

Jason Bacon, 41, was arrested in Eureka, Calif., in March after responding to a classified ad for a used motorcycle by offering to trade about $8,000 worth of his home-grown marijuana for it. According to an officer on the scene, Bacon told a deputy, “I know you can’t sell it, but I thought it was OK to trade it.”



OUR DYNAMIC DEMOCRACY

Oklahoma state Sen. Ralph Shortey, a staunch abortion opponent, introduced a bill in January to ban the use of human fetuses in processed food. Although the principal anti-abortion advocacy official in the state said he had never heard of such a practice, Sen. Shortey asserted that it was a problem and that he had been reading up on it on the Internet.

Now that he is seated, he still must answer to 2010 charges in Kutztown, Pa., of resisting arrest for public drunkenness. In both incidents, he also displayed an uncanny ability to slip out of handcuffs and wander away from arresting officers.

Local Food,

from the ground to your plate

By Jen Russo

T

here was a time when restaurant owners hid their kitchens behind closed doors and high walls. They bought their ingredients from factory farms and big agri-businesses, which traded relatively low prices for food grown under industrial conditions with pesticides, hormones and, ultimately, genetic modifications. Those days are ending. Consumers now want to know

MARCH 29, 2012

Photography by Sean Michael Hower how, where and who is producing the ingredients that go into their meals. And more and more, they want the producers of food to be close enough to visit, even meet in person. Perhaps because it’s an island, Maui is embracing this trend. To show you, we’ve talked with some of the best chefs around about where they get their food, as well as the farmers and ranchers who grew it. It’s an eye-opening look at the people who grow and prepare the meals at some of the island’s best restaurants.


JAMES (KIMO) SIMPLICIANO “My food revolution began in 2007 when I was volunteering my time with a youth at risk program called ‘Alternative Learning Center’ (ALC) at Lahainaluna High School in Hawaii.”

Simpli-fresh produce LLC Hawaii Simpli-fresh.com twitter.com/kimosimpliciano  was always farming or gardening back on Oahu with my family, mom and dad and other relatives. I am growing at a couple of private estate homes which supplements my private chef friend, Riko Bartolome. During my time here on the island of Maui, my passion was reignited when I started volunteering at Lahainaluna High School’s ALC program. I wanted to share my knowledge in good fresh home-cooked meals. As a lead Banquet cook at the Westin Maui I not only enjoy cooking but also devoting my time towards growing healthy nutritious organic fruits and vegetables, wherever possible trying to maintain and sustain localvore: buying lo-

cal produce and growing community gardens. I was inspired by a great Oahu Mao Organic Farm and I truly believe every community should have more outlets like these for the youth. I believe teaching about food is great, and creating an activity such as gardening keeps kids fit and out of the house. Coupled together these could be a solution to fight childhood obesity. I have been given farms on private land. I knew I couldn’t do it alone so I asked a few friends to lend me a hand. They, in return, get to plant and sell vegetables. I test plant seeds from my dad and heirloom organic seed companies. The business is growing and the demand for local produce is on the rise. From citrus to root vegetables, I have been able to grow, forage and sell. I don’t have the full time luxury of farming full time–I work another job full-time and do this part-time. Equipment is expensive, but I’m starting a savings for farm implements. Since I do not spray unless organic OMRI certified, I’m having trouble with pests. I would like to take classes to get organic food safety certified. Although I have faced some challenges, I have received great support in this mission. Restaurants that support me include Honu, Mala, Merrimans, I’o, Hula Grill, Pineapple Grill and Humunukunukuapua‘a. I also sell at the Launiopoko farmers market on Saturdays.

CHEF ISAAC BANCACO, HUMUHUMUNUKUNUKUAPUA‘A “I believe in our farmers and share in the pride they have in their products.” HUMUHUMUNUKUNUKUAPUA‘A Grand Wailea, 3850 Wailea Alanui 875-1234, ext 4949, wailearesortdining.com Warm Upcountry Brussel Sprout Salad with Fingerling Potatoes sweet soy glaze and Bacon Lardons  ur locally sourced Brussel sprouts are quartered and crispy fried with French frysized fingerling potatoes until golden brown. While still sizzling, they’re then tossed with rosemary, parsley, bacon, red peppers and mixed with our secret seasoning and sauce. Growing up I couldn’t stand Brussel sprouts. I was almost force fed them as a child and still can remember that blue and white frozen box of Brussel sprouts that got pulled from the freezer as my mom tried to create a nutritious, last minute dinner. As I talked to our local farmers and discussed what they were comfortable growing, Brussel sprouts came up as a “can do” item and I jumped at the challenge to create a compelling dish that put them at the forefront. In all, it took about 12 versions

CHEF ALAN MCLAUGHLIN, HAWAIIAN MOONS NATURAL FOODS “We live on a Rock, we need to support all of our local growers of all foods.” HAWAIIAN MOONS NATURAL FOODS 2411 S. Kihei Rd. 875-4356 hawaiianmoons.com Organic Lacinato Kale & Chard Salad: $7.49 per pound in the Salad Bar  ur philosophy has always been to use as much local products as possible. The organic kale is grown Upcountry at Coca Farms and we also use Kumu Farms. It’s a local, organic, made fresh daily and an all-around great simple raw dish. The kale is julienned a quarter inch and the chard is julienned a half inch, then dressed with a fresh lemon juice, unrefined x-virgin olive oil, seasoned with sea salt and coarse ground black pepper. Freshness and quality keeps folks employed. If you want fresh, then support the local ranchers, growers and fishermen. This is a way for us to give back.

O and four months to land upon our current menu preparation–a lot of work for an item I once had a deep aversion to. I really view my job as a chef to be the liaison between grower and guest and then guest back to the grower, each relationship equally important. Our guests need to know which products are grown with the highest quality on Maui–after all, that’s what they expect from our island restaurants. But equally important, our growers need to know what varieties, qualities and quantities of products our guests are demanding. Without a strong chef/grower relationship this type of communication wouldn’t be possible.

CHEFS JAMES DOMINGO AND RYAN FERGUSON, LEILANI’S ON THE BEACH “By having fresh produce, we can produce a ‘WOW’ factor for our guests to keep them coming back.” LEILANI’S ON THE BEACH 2435 Kaanapali Pkwy, Lahaina, leilanis.com Bangkok Beef & Buckwheat Noodles: $13.95  he buckwheat noodles are cooked and chilled, tossed with locally grown baby mizuna, thinly sliced watermelon radish, carrots, bell peppers, bean sprouts, Chinese cabbage, wasbi peas and then dressed with a Thai yuzu dressing. Then they’re topped with a hot-off-the-grill beef skewer. We use these local veggies not only because they produce a fantastic taste and balance in the dish but also because they are the freshest. We want to get everyone on board to support our local farmers and continue the great relationship we have with them.

CHEF RHODERICK D. BULOSAN AND THE COOKS, BUZZ’S WHARF “By showcasing local items, we are providing the customers with the product that is indicative of what Hawaii has to offer.” BUZZ’S WHARF Ma’alaea Harbor 244-5426 buzzswharf.com Misoyaki Walu $29  n this dish, the walu is caught by local fisherman in our waters and delivered to us fresh, never frozen. Our Maui onions and baby bok choy are grown by Kula local farmers. We use these items because they are consistently

I

available for us and they compliment each other very well in this dish. The dish is a six-ounce filet of walu marinated in miso paste, mirin, sweet Thai chili and green onions. It is seared, then baked til the fish is nice and golden brown. It’s served with Buzz’s own teriyaki sauce, crispy Maui onions, shitake mushroom chips, stir fry vegetables and choice of starch (white rice, brown rice, or garlic mashed potatoes). I love the nice moist texture of the fish, some like it with a miso glaze, others with a teriyaki glaze, so I decided to put the two together to get the best of both worlds and created a “Misoyaki Walu.” As a young chef developing new skills, I learned to utilize local items not only to support the economy but to bring out the flavors that our island has to offer. Visitors come here not to see and taste what they already have, but to try something new and interesting.

PRESTON HOPE, MALA WAILEA “Any farmers out there with unique products, Mala would like to hear from you.” MALA WAILEA 3700 Wailea Ala Nui Dr. Malawailea.com Miso Paka, $42  e marinate the fresh fish in a sake miso paste, bake it in a very hot oven and serve it on top of purple Molokai potatoes with fresh local corn and kabocha squash. Everything on the plate is local, from the Maui seafood to the island herbs for micro greens.

ue to recent advances in the production of printer’s ink (which are kinda technical and since we didn’t do so hot in high school chemistry, we’re going to skip), it’s now possible to insert fragrances into the printing process itself. And couldn’t think of a better time to test these new inks than our annual Food Issue. It was a production nightmare, but somehow we set matched some of the more, let’s say, aromatic inks with the appropriate photo of food in our cover feature. If all went well during the printing process, then you’ll be able to scratch a photo of, say, a burger and smell grilled beef, or a filet of mahi and smell the ocean–you get the idea. If you want more information on these new aromatic inks, scan the QR code below. And happy scratching!


CHEF BEN KLEIN, MALA OCEAN TAVERN “Living in Hawaii, 3,000 miles from any major landmass, our carbon footprint becomes magnified that much more.” MALA OCEAN TAVERN 1307 Front St., Lahaina, malaoceantavern.com Beet carpaccio  feel that the combination of using fresh local ingredients and a unique cooking technique make this dish special. We sous vide the baby beets, which gives them a unique texture and allows them to retain nearly all of the vitamin and mineral content as well as the vibrant color. I was inspired to create this dish by the introduction to the sous vide technique and by farmer James Simpliciano, who allowed me to sample some of the local baby beets. The dish is also basically a deconstructed and slightly healthier version of the roasted beet salad that we have on our regular menu. We used a tarragon vinaigrette as opposed to the anise seed flavored vinaigrette and instead of the fried goat cheese croquette on the roasted beet salad, we use fresh goat cheese and fried shallots to create a similar texture and flavor profile. We are constantly motivated to use local ingredients whenever possible, not only for freshness and quality but for leaving as little of a carbon footprint as possible.

ROXANNE TIFFIN “We buy locally grown produce and value-added artisan grocery items from Hawaii growers and food producers and deliver them to homes on Maui and Oahu.” Kula Fields kulafields.com, 280-2099  epending on what a farmer grows and seasonal availability, we work with over 60 farms and food producers throughout the state. The majority are based on Maui because that’s our homebase. I would never want to offend farmers out there calling myself a CSA. They are hardcore about their farming method and to them I am not a CSA. I prefer the term “modified CSA.” There are several modified-CSAs” throughout the US and they are gaining in popularity.

D

In a traditional CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program, a customer buys produce “shares” or an agreed-upon amount of producefilled boxes in advance of the plantings to help the farmer cover the costs of raising and harvesting those crops. It ensures that the farmer has a built-in market once those crops are grown. The grower and the customer share in the gains and losses that arise throughout the growing season. How we differ from a traditional CSA is that we are able to work with many growers to help them bring crops to market. Not all growers can work the CSA model, so this provides a market that wouldn’t ordinarily be open to them. Our model tends to be beneficial for the consumer because they’re able to help support many farmers within a small area. Our challenges tend to be weather-related and just educating our customers on what is available locally and their seasonality. People tell me that they want things like apples, kiwi, grapes and pears in their boxes. Some of those things will grow here in Hawaii, just not in any kind of real quantity or it doesn’t look or taste like the produce they are familiar with.

PEPE VEGA, MAUI TACOS “Using local products create more jobs for our people.” MAUI TACOS Islandwide, 871-7726, All our salsas: free to $8.95  e source as much as we can for our fresh Mexican menu. Avocados, limes, cilantro, tomatoes, fresh herbs, beef when available, fish when available. But the selection and variety of our house-made salsas in the salsa bar really make these local products come alive with our food. The pineapple salsa uses Maui Gold pineapple, local jalapeno, cilantro and tomatillo. The avocado habenero salsa and the tomato cilantro salsa are just a few examples of our popular, locally sourced condiments you will find there.

JOSH MARTEN, R.S. SHARKY’S “Use local to reduce trash and landfill problems.” R.S. SHARKY’S 41 E Lipoa, Ste. 15, Kihei Sharkyshawaii.com Margarita pizza 14.95  ur restaurant is all about the community. Our margarita pizza is made from local tomatoes, basil and cheeses. We get our vegetables from the Lipoa Street Farmers Market, and our burgers are from a local beef manufacturer that is not Maui Cattle Company. We support them because we need them to support us. It is something everyone should do. If we all did this more we could help out Maui and eliminate waste from packaging products.

CHEF MICHAEL GREENSTREET, HONU SEAFOOD & PIZZA

“We work side by side with local farmers in Hawaii designing the menu from the items that they are harvesting.”

It’s only natural that we honor the local bounty that our fisherman have to offer, with whole roasted fish, grilled octopus, and fried uhu. Owner and Chef Mark Ellman’s commitment to supporting local and organic creates this amazing menu full of interesting combinations and flavors, healthy and delicious. Farmer James Simpliciano supplies us with these beautiful yellow kabocha blossoms from the mountains right behind this restaurant. We season the Ricotta, stuff each flower, then dip it in tempura and fry till crispy. It is served with a Fresh Green Tomato salsa.

CHEF ARIS AURELIO, KO “The traditional Filipino oxtail stew is a family recipe that has been passed down through generations to me, and now I have brought it to Ko.” KO The Fairmont Kea Lani, 4100 Wailea Alanui Dr. Kare-Kare (promise-promise): $38  make the stew in a traditional Filipino oxtail style, served in savory peanut sauce with eggplant, long beans and baby bok choy. Executive Chef Tylun Pang sources from 10-15 fishermen daily and over 16 island farmers, resulting in over 85 percent of the produce at Kō grown on Maui, Molokai and Hawaii. Buying local is simply the right thing to do. And it tastes so much better!

It’s created Upcountry by Haleakala Distillers (haleakaladistillers.com). The Maui Pineapple Flavored Rum is light, 80 proof and a true handcrafted local product, exclusively made for The Westin Maui Resort & Spa.

T

At most, a few dozen one-liter bottles are produced per day because all bottling is done by hand. The MPFR is currently unavailable on the Mainland or any other Hawaiian islands. The ingredients include fresh, flavorful molasses from the Pu‘unene Sugar Mill, fully ripened Maui Gold Pineapples from the Hali’imailie Pineapple Co., charcoal made from coconut shells used in the filtration process and evaporated sugar cane juice. All the bottles in the process are recycled and reused in a special program with the distillery.

CHEF SHA’ANAN FADER, ALIVE & WELL “Coconut is King! It’s Local, abundant, healthy, delicious.” Alive & Well 340 Hana Hwy, Kahului 808-877-4950 aliveandwellmaui.com, facebook.com/aliveandwellmaui Strawberry Kefir Meringue, $6.50  t begins with fresh, frothy coconut kefir yogurt. The kefir is infused with organic vanilla bean powder and blended with dripping red (when available) Kula strawberries. The creamy probiotic rich filling is poured into a sprouted graham cracker crust, chilled and sets up to form a perfectly rich, custard like speckled-pink meringue. It’s garnished with half of a monsta-strawberry generously dipped in an aromatic chocolate sauce. As the chocolate hardens, a sneaky drizzle runs down the side of each slice, symbolizing the abundance of sweetness in life, close to the land.

I



“Coconut is something that everyone should have access to.” Alive & Well aliveandwellmaui.com  he coconut kefir I produce out of local coconuts is fresh coconut meat and coconut water. It’s completely coconut. It’s not watered down in any sense of the word. The process only takes 18 hours; it literally ferments overnight. The fresh oily coconut meat is

T

combined with young coconut water. The Kefir strains are stirred in and 18 hours later life is teaming from the jars. The enormity of benefits that probiotic-rich foods possess make them close to the best thing you can put in your body. One of the most exciting things to me about the coconut yogurt is its use in live/raw food preparation. Most live/raw food menus are based on nuts and seeds. The desserts that are produced tend to be heavy and rich. The coconut kefir yogurt has let me substitute the nuts in the dessert for yogurt. The probiotic in the yogurt, which is a digestive aid in itself, combines with the naturally occurring enzymes to pleasantly introduce the desserts to the belly. No guilt, no “bomb,” just smiles.

My favorite is the beer vinaigrette. Buying local meat means great quality, fresh, free of the bacterial scares that occur in large Mainland/foreign imported products and our local cattle is humanely raised and processed. Our burger costs more than McDonald’s. If you’re looking for a 99 cent burger, go somewhere else, you’re not our audience.

Edward and Joan have farmed continuously since 1975. Our main focus is culinary herbs (20plus varieties). We also grow some specialty vegetables such as French beans, Yellow Wax beans, specialty eggplants and lettuces. Our business has remained fairly steady over the past few years but we have grown slightly by finding new customers for our produce. The rising costs of farming (fertilizer, fuel, packaging, etc) and the continuous introduction into Hawaii of new diseases, pathogens and

We began farming immediately and converted to all natural organic and biodynamic methods in December 2003. We have over the years developed a sustainable system of farming that grows exclusively for our chefs at the restaurants and our tour guests at the farm. We celebrate that farm-to-table is becoming more widely practiced, particularly here in the islands by founding Hawaiian regional cuisine chefs like Peter Merriman, Mark Ellman and Bev Gannon, yet we remain the only entirely proprietary farm-to-table operation on Maui. We own the land and farm it ourselves, controlling everything from the selection of the seed and product to tending to the growing cycle, all the way down to harvesting and delivery. Oo Farm’s pioneering work further serves our local communities in the state of Hawaii by providing leadership and education for the next generation of chefs and farmers seeking to sustain our islands’ resources and health.

“We serve a buffet that has rich Hawaiian culture from our own taro farm to the table.” OLD LAHAINA LUAU 1251 Front St., Lahaina, Luau Buffet  ou can’t talk about Hawaiian cuisine without talking about taro. It’s significant enough that we have our own Hoaloha Farms, where farmer Bobby Pahia grows our taro. From this farm we get the Lau Lau, sweet potato, Luau Leaf, banana bread, pork wrapped in taro leaf and taro root steamed and mashed for poi. In the two years Pahia has been farming at Hoaloha, business

has grown from one field to three. Keeping up with demand is his challenge. Sharing the story of taro with our guests through the dishes they create is delicious and satisfying.

We donated $1 for every salad sold. The guest feedback on the salad was outstanding. So now we’ve decided to put it on the menu and continue to buy a lot of fresh ingredients from local farms: Waipoli farm greens, hydroponic lettuce, Kula onions, marinated Hana hearts of palm, lime miso, Hana Herb Farm’s pohole ferns. Peter Merriman is a chef/owner and his whole philosophy is farm-to-table. We deal with well over 20 farms. We believe it’s very important to keep ingredients as local as we can by showcasing Maui’s fresh food. We have been awarded the Mayor’s Friends of Agriculture Award in 2007.

EMILY KUNZ AND KATHRYN DAHM, CHOICE HEALTH BAR “Food should be fresh and living to be truly healthful.”

THOMAS AND EVA KAFSACK “We make gourmet goat cheeses and 18 different goat cheese truffles with happy goats.” Surfing Goat Dairy surfinggoatdairy.com, 878-2870  he Surfing Goat cream cheeses run the gamut of flavor from Udderly Delicious (plain) to exotic varieties like Mandalay (apple bananas and curry) or Pirate’s Desire (anchovies and capers). The dairy also produces several soft cheeses, including soft cheese ripened under wax, in olive oil with garlic, or coated with mesquite ash, along with brine-ripened feta cheese. Our challenge remains getting all the local restaurants, including those on neighboring islands, to put goat cheese on their menus. We sell our products here at our dairy and at Whole Foods, Mana Foods, Honolua Store, Cafe Chou and the wine and cheese shops of Wailea.

ed by T S Restaurants Executive Chef Scott McGill, our Farm to Fork initiative sources ingredients from over 20 local farms on Maui. Our Farm to Fork menu allows guests to experience a locally sourced meal and support local farmers and their families at the same time. Using locally sourced items is part of our overall commitment to reducing our environmental impact by implementing green practices wherever possible in the restaurant. In an effort to reach our minimal impact goals, we also utilize an environmental grease removal system, an energy efficient hot water system, an energy efficient computer programmed oven, UV grease integration cooking hoods, potato starch go-to supplies and LED lighting throughout the restaurant.

CHOICE HEALTH BAR 1087 Limahana Place #3, Lahaina 661-7711 choicemaui.com fb.com/Choice.Maui Kale superfood salad: $8 ($6 in the quick grab fridge)  e love working with kale–it’s the ultimate for the human body and makes you feel good! The kale salad in particular is always superlocal, and the flavors change daily depending on what’s fresh and available from Maui’s farms. The kale salad is made with curly green and lacinato kale, sprouts, fresh veggies, often a nut

crumble and a homemade salad dressing like Coconut Garlic, Almond Butter Peanut Sauce, Red Pepper Nacho Cheeze or our Herbal Infusion. Sometimes we add superfoods like goji berries, mulberries, bee pollen and fresh coconut noodles. We locally source: apple bananas, coconuts, strawberries, papayas, lemons, limes, pineapples, mangoes, kale, chard, collards, tomatoes, beets, green peppers, ginger, avocados, zucchini, green onions, maui onions, spinach, cabbage, broccoli, corn, herbs (mint, basil, cilantro, parsley, rosemary, oregano, thyme), sprouts (sunflower, radish, clover) and wheatgrass. Produce that is fresh, meaning picked within the last couple days and NOT shipped on a boat here is pure living food with enzymes and proteins that are really good for you. We personally pick up 75 percent of the produce from the farmers at their farm, with two runs per week in our car that travels from Lahaina to Haiku and Kula running on Maui-made biodiesel. We love locally sourced fuel. That’s what’s up!

“Like the concept of the ‘ahupua‘a system, the culture of sustainability and sourcing locally must be passed down from generation to generation.” TROPICA The Westin Maui Resort & Spa, 2365 Kaanapali Pkwy, Lahaina, 662-2775 westinmaui.com, Ahupua‘a four course tasting menu: $55  ating local is the study of the Hawaiian culture. Each island was divided into triangular pieces, extending from the top of the mountain, through the forests, the agricultural fields, the living areas along the shoreline and out to the reef. Small sections of these triangles were called ‘ahupua‘a. The Hawaiians valued their `ahupua`a based on an efficient water source from the mountain to the sea. Our Ahupua’a menu reflects the same concept. The menu includes Hawaiian Blue Opae, Kula Onion Risotto, Natural Prime Strip and Baked Hawaii. The Opae (shrimp) from the Big Island originates from within the water source, the Kula Onion and Prime Strip are from the pastures cultivated and grown by the water source and finally the coconut for our Baked Hawaii is from the coconut trees on our island’s beaches, located at the bottom of the water source. This menu is special because it teaches us the value of our resources here on the islands. If we learn to take care of our ‘aina (land) and care for each other we all can reap all the benefits it has to offer. This is what our Hawaiian ancestors would want us to do–be pono, to do the right thing. ■ jen@mauitime.com + @jenrusso

THURSDAY, MARCH 29 MUST-SEE PHOTOJOURNALIST PETER SIMON: “THROUGH THE LENSE: A LIFE FILLED WITH HISTORY, FRIENDSHIPS, ADDICTIONS” – “Peter Simon is a magician... capturing moonbeams in his hands and lens. Most of the world’s thrilling places elude their documentations, but Peter’s life is a voyage of his generation; a virtual prism of the counterculture from then to now.” –  Diane Sawyer. Dear readers, scan this entry quick enough to get the gist, then get in your car and head to Haiku, OK? This event’s not-to-be-missed. For over 40 years, Peter Simon has documented some of the world’s most historic events–from 1960s protests, hippie communes and the New Age movement, to the greatest names in rock, reggae and pop. In this multimedia presentation, Simon “speaks honestly about his photographic art, privileged background, alternative lifestyle explorations and addictions.” If you know what’s good for you, you’ll also get a copy of his gorgeous book I and Eye, and show up early for Thai dinner entrees, desserts and chai made available pre-show. Plus, the ever-amazing Randall Rospond performs live. $15 cash at door. 6pm live music / 7pm presentation. Temple of Peace (575 Haiku Rd.); 575-5220; templeofpeacemaui.com / petersimon.com

MMM, MMM MAKANA –  In an interview with Makana a few years back, he sincerely told me, “When I’m standing on the beach composing a song for the sunset...” I didn’t hear a word afterward because I’d puddled under my desk, little cartoon hearts spinning around my girlish wreckage. Because sure, Makana’s adorable–but what makes him super sexy are his stellar skills. Recently he got loads of coverage when he sang a protest song at a big APEC dinner before the Obama ‘ohana and other world leaders (what Rolling Stone later inked as the “Occupy anthem”); in 2008 he was named one of the US’s top three six stringers by Guitar Player Magazine; and pubs from The New York Times to National Geographic rave that he’s “a dynamic force within the [slack-key] style” and “charting a new sonic frontier with deep ties to tradition.” If you think you can keep yourself together (I can’t), catch Makana this Thursday, around sunset, at Stella���s Supper Club. $30 show-only / $60 with four-course dinner. 6pm dinner seating / 7:30pm showtime. Stella Blues Cafe (1279 S. Kihei Rd.); 874-3779; stellablues.com / makanamusic.com

FRIDAY, MARCH 30 ‘LIVE’ AUCTION: GET WET WITH LIFEGUARD AND FIREFIGHTER HOTTIES – Maui’s finest men are up for auction! With bidding starting at just $20, winners get wet with lifeguard and firefighter hotties by joining them in the Spa Grande’s co-ed termé. It’s all part of this month’s Divas Night Out event at the Grande Wailea, where “your water glasses are always kept full and chocolate treats are always at your reach.” The spa’s also donating a variety of treatments and products, with bidding starting at $25. Proceeds benefit the Visitor Industry Charity Walk which supports local nonprofit organizations. More good news: if things in the tub get uber awkward and you decide to try to drown yourself, loads of cute dudes are there to save you. Reservations required. Tickets: $50 divas / $25 mini divas. 7pm. Spa Grande, Grand Wailea (3850 Wailea Alanui); 875-1234 ext. 4949; grandwailea.com

JOURNEY TO “COCONUT ISLAND” WITH THE KIT KAT CLUB CABARET –  This Friday, “watch as go-go dancing stewardess encounter saucy security guards, feisty pirates, sinister mermaids and wish-granting genies,” as the Kit Kat Club Cabaret “takes you on an exotic, fantasy-inspired journey–from the inside of a romantically stylized airplane, through the comedic Bermuda Triangle, then onto an exotic tropical island!” Plus, the VIP hookah lounge boasts a coconut kefir tonic bar and Chef Elijah’s scrumptious amuse-bouche (like mahi mahi on a bed of wilted kale topped with the plantation’s pineapple salsa). PS: the speakeasy password is “pineapple.” $10 advance / $15 door. 6:30pm doors / 7:30pm show. Maui Tropical Plantation (Honoapiilani Hwy., Waikapu); facebook.com/kitkatclubcabaret PHOTO BY MICHAEL ANDREWS

SATURDAY, MARCH 31 19TH ANNUAL HAIKU HO’OLAULE’A & FLOWER FESTIVAL –  The words “flower festival” (in Haiku to boot!) sure feel good, huh? They evoke the sense of being drenched in midmorning sundrops; of pony rides and pie eating contests, book sales and jumpy castles, and buckets upon buckets of beautiful blooms–everything the annual Haiku Ho’olaule’a & Flower Festival indeed has. Best of all, amidst all that goodness, it’s all for a good cause as proceeds support the education and enrichment programs for keiki at Haiku Elementary School. See our Da Kine Calendar for details. Free admission. 9am-4:30pm. Haiku Community Center (Hana Hwy.); 575-3004; haikuhoolaulea@gmail.com

I LIKE ICKE –  “If I was to sum up this man [David Icke], his beliefs, in a little succinct sentence, dear listener, it’s ‘Noam Chomsky with lizards.’” – John Safran (on Triple J’s Sunday Night Safran; Nov. 6, 2011). Last week’s cover story on in/famous conspiracy theorist David Icke was a horrendous challenge–not only because of short time and resources–but because it felt damned-near impossible to tackle the wild ideas Icke’s promulgated over his controversial 22-year career–mercurial notions which I find utterly fascinating but ultimately hard to reconcile. Frankly, I didn’t do as good of a job on the piece as I’d have liked; but anyway it doesn’t matter ‘cause Icke’s on-isle to tell you all about his stuff himself. “This isn’t the sort of thing I can explain in five minutes,” Icke says, and for that reason he globe-trots giving all-day lectures at big venues (like he will at the MACC, this Saturday). This year he has but two American appearances (of just three worldwide)–and luckily for us, one’s on Maui. I’ve been anticipating Icke’s Valley Isle visit more than keiki do Christmas, and can’t wait to go (that is, if I’m not banned from the premises). Because really, I like Icke, and hope to see you there, too. $39 / $69 / $99. 9am registration / 10am10pm program. Castle Theater, MACC (One Cameron Way, Kahului); 242-SHOW (7469); mauiarts.org

SATURDAY, MARCH 31 MEET THE AUTHOR: WAYNE MONIZ – “The singing snails announce / A deity is among us...” – from the poem “Ke Kolea” by Wayne Moniz. This Saturday, Maui author and playwright Wayne Moniz presents a program on the lawn of the Bailey House Museum, reading from his new book, Beyond the Reef: Stories of Maui in the World (plus a scene from “The Cruel Sun,” from his last book, Under Maui Skies and Other Stories). The program also includes music by Maui-born and Na Hoku Hanhohano award-winning artists Kevin Brown and Sheldon Brown. Moniz’s new book features a new collection of kaona (Hawaiian metaphoric poetry), many of which are dedicated to his family and friends like the late Pekelo Cosma. And as in his previous anthology, each fiction piece is of a different genre, from comedy to crime to a ghost story and even a Western. $10 suggested donation / $5 for Maui Historical Society Members. 4pm. Bailey House Museum (2375-A Main St., Wailuku); 244-3326; mauimuseum.org

SUNDAY, APRIL 1 MEET THE AUTHOR: GWYN GORG – Gwyn Gorg’s a Renaissance woman who sings, dances, acts, writes, and–perhaps most importantly–teaches (in 2008, Gorg was named “Teacher of the Year” by the United Teachers of Los Angeles union and currently is an instructor at the University of Hawaii’s Maui Language Institute). This Sunday at Yogi Shala Studio, she reads from her book I Am The Blues–an anthropomorphic tale that “depicts the evolution of the blues from rhythmic drums in Africa merging into wails across the Middle Passage and morphing into calls and responses on the plantation fields. When freedom came, the drum rhythms and tones expanded to include new forms, instruments, and subsequently evolved into new genres.... soul, rhythm and blues, pop, techno, funk, country western, and rap.” Free. 3pm. Maui Yoga Shala (Old Paia Train Depot, 381 Baldwin Ave.)

TUESDAY, APRIL 3

MONDAY, APRIL 2 EVERY BODY’S WORKIN’ FOR THE WELLNESS –  Maui County’s idealistic, alliterative and oxymoronic “Workplace Wellness Week” kicks off today. While not much can be done about the soul-sucking daily grind, research underlines the importance of taking “micro breaks” by standing, walking and stretching regularly throughout the day, and making informed food choices. Not only is it good for body and mind, but it can help employer’s bottom line by “reducing sick leave and absenteeism, lowering health plan expenditures, workers’ compensation claims, disabilities management costs and increase productivity.” Learn more on Thursday, Apr. 7 at the free Workplace Wellness Fair (10am-2pm), where attendees will receive tips from health experts about diet and “nutrition, ergonomics, exercise incentives, health education and screenings and [my favorite] stress management.” Maui County Building (200 S. High St., Wailuku); 280-1299; co.maui.hi.us.

HIPNAUTICAL – Roger and Bobbie Jo Curley–a husband-and-wife duet playing guitar and Celtic harp, respectively–have been touring the world on their sailboat, S/V Hipnautical (hence the name of their group), playing “eclectic adult contemporary music.” The pair now call Maui home, and every Tuesday evening they bring gig at Hana Hou Cafe in Haiku. (And since it’s MauiTime’s annual Food Issue, let me insert a recommendation for Hana Hou’s ultra ono pahole fern salad.) “We don’t really play dance music,” writes Roger, “but people often do get up and move around a bit while we play. We are basically an acoustic duo allowing people to enjoy the venue with the unique sounds of Bobbie’s Celtic harp, her amazing vocals and our artful musical arrangements.” No cover. 6-9pm. Hana Hou Cafe (Haiku Marketplace, 810 Haiku Rd.); 575-2661; hipnautical.com / hanahoucafe.com

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 4 FREE FITTINGS WITH A SWIMWEAR SPECIALIST – Go ahead and berate me because this week, I’m doin’ the hand job jive for the high-end corporate outfit/ter and paradise appropriator with the audacity to tagline itself “purveyor of island lifestyles.” But here’s my defense: I’ve got a soft spot for Tommy Bahama because in my years spent tornadowhipped in Kansas–about as far away from Maui as can be imagined–I paid the furnace bills by selling silk aloha shirts to KC elite before their trips to the isles. In some strange way, it kept me from being too homesick; and truth be told, I had a great time. Tommy Bahama

products per-pop might cost you a couple Franklins, but it’s quality stuff (I still have–and wear–a lot of my old uniforms)–especially their swim suits. This Wednesday, the company’s fit specialist, Lissette Marquez, will be at the Whaler’s Village location for their “Sip and Swim” event (one of just a handful of appearances nationwide), helping wahine guests put together their water-side ensemble. Plus, they’ll dish free appetizers and refreshing beverages. Reservations recommended. Free. 10am-1pm and 2-5pm. Tommy Bahama (Whaler’s Village, Ka’anapali); 661-8823; tommybahama.com

20th Annual Celebration of the Arts 

Fri., Sat. & Sun., Apr. 6 through 8. Ritz-Carlton Kapalua (One Kapalua Bay Dr.); free

E



very Easter weekend for the last two decades, something spectacular–and uniquely Hawaiian–has been happening at the RitzCarlton Kapalua: the annual Celebration of the Arts. In the spirit of springtime resurrection, a celebration of Hawaiian arts, culture and environment has been a shining testament to the enduring–and resurging–qualities of Hawaiian tradition, and a platform for its continued evolution. Hosting workshops and discussions about all things Hawaiian, dozens of artisans, cultural practitioners, activists and philosophers fill the Ritz’s plush lobby hallways, ballrooms and grounds. From keiki to kupuna, hundreds of locals and visitors alike take part in this free festival–learning, sharing and growing in an atmosphere of creative camaraderie. It’s easy to assume that fancy shmancy resorts insulate our visitors from true Hawaiian experiences. And indeed, even outside of our resort towns, it’s sometimes hard for residents–grown here or flown here–to find immersive, cultural authenticity untarnished by commercialism’s appropriation. But the Celebration of the Arts is the perfect way to discover the Hawaiian heart and soul of this Kapalua hotel, and enjoy the myriad ways it exalts Hawaiian arts and ideas, and how it all relates to the world at large. “There’s no separatism. This event is about creating common ground through art, music in-

telligent conversation,” says Clifford Nae‘ole, the helmsman of the event and the Ritz’s longtime cultural advisor. “It’s an ecumenical weekend.” The days are packed with free activities, workshops, panel discussions and performances. Plus, one hallmark of the event is that attendees have the uncommon opportunity to sit down with artisans and create artwork of their own. “This isn’t a generic swap meet,” Nae‘ole says. “Keepsakes aren’t bought, they’re created. Everyone’s relaxed. Everyone’s helping each other. There’s no hard sell.” In fact, but for the occasional, nominal supply fee, all the art projects (as with the events) are free–as many artisans generously provide their own materials. For example, you can sit down with beloved nose bamboo flute maker Calvin Hoe, who brings in long strands of bamboo and teaches his craft. Or, you can design and craft custom jewelry from rare Ni’ihau shells. For the full experience, plan to stay the weekend at the Ritz (it’s the best excuse all year for a little indulgence; and kama‘aina rates start at $245 per night, including a breakfast buffet for two). But if you can only make a daytrip of it, pick Friday if you prefer less crowds and more one-on-one attention from artisan instructors, or Saturday if you like the colorful hustle and bustle of the festival’s busiest day.

OUT WITH THE BAD AND IN WITH THE GOOD: HI’UWAI & “E ALA E” CEREMONIES – 5:45-7am. Greet the dawn and rejuvenate your spirit with a ceremonial plunge (hi‘uwai) into the clear waters of Kapalua Bay. Several hundred attendees convene for the oli “E Ala E” (a sunrise chant) and cultural protocol. Keep in mind the mood’s much like church (e.g. no photography), and swim wear and towels are required. KA WAI A KANE ‘AWA CEREMONY –  8:15-9:15am. To honor 20 years of dedication to Hawaiian arts, cultural practitioners and resort management gather to drink a traditional libation made of ‘awa root called ka wai a Kane, meaning “the bitter waters of Kane” (i.e. Kane, the leading of the four great Hawaiian gods). Public viewing is acceptable, however given the sacred nature of the ‘awa ceremony, photography is not allowed. OPENING CEREMONIES: WEHE I KA PUKA – 10-10:45am. “Wehe i ka puka” means “open the door” and aptly titles the official opening ceremonies of the festival. This beautiful procession of protocol and traditional oli (chant) sets the tone for the event. Plus, The Namahana Award of Excellence will be given to two deserving na kupuna (elders) who’ve led a life supporting all things Hawaiian. The award was named in honor of the late Auntie Lydia Namahana Maioho, who championed the festival, year after year. Her “wonderful personality and zest for life,” Nae’ole says, epitomized the sharing spirit of the event. MEET FINE ARTIST KATHY LONG AT THE VILLAGE GALLERY – 11am-1pm and 2-4pm. Kathy Long, a resident artist at Ritz-Carlton’s The Village Gallery, autographs and discusses her works of art. Plus, view the signature piece she’s created especially for the 20th annual festival. Continues on Sat., Apr. 7, 11am-1pm. CREATE YOUR OWN TAKE-HOME WORKS OF CONTEMPORARY & TRADITIONAL ART – 11am4pm. Dozens of artistans share their techniques (and, graciously, their materials) so that you can create your own take-home works of art. Artists’ details are available in a daily program insert from resort concierges. Continues on Sat., Apr. 7, 10am-4pm. KA ‘OLELO MAKUAHINE (MOTHER TONGUE): HEAR THE HAWAIIAN LANGUAGE SPOKEN BY NI’IHAU ISLAND NATIVES AND CREATE PRIZED SHELL JEWELRY – 11am-4pm. Ho‘olohe (listen) and ho‘opuka (learn) from visiting na ‘ohana o Ni‘ihau (the families of Ni‘ihau). Meanwhile, craft custom jewelry from rare Ni‘ihau shells. LIVE ENTERTAINMENT – 11:30am-12:15pm and 1:30-2:15pm. Because music and dance is part and parcel to Hawaiian culture and arts, melodic ensembles perform live in the lobby’s ambient Alaloa Lounge. Continues on Sat., Apr. 7, 11:30am-12:15pm and 1:30-2:15pm. “HULAROBICS” – 11:30am-12:30pm. So you think you can hula? Graceful dancers may make Hawaii’s hallmark dance look effortless, but the sculpt of their hot hula bods make evident that hula’s hard work! “Hularobics” instructor Lopaka Bukoski shares hula’s challenging moves in a lively class that’s sure to make you stretch and sweat. Workout attire required. Continues on Sat., Apr. 7, 9-10am. “THE RAINBOW WITHIN YOU” KEIKI SONG WRITING WORKSHOP WITH HENRY KAPONO –  11:30-12:15pm. Henry Kapono, renowned Hawaiian entertainer and co-founder of the event, believes there’s a rainbow of creativity within us all. With his acclaimed musical know how (of which his numerous Na Hoku Hanohano awards and Grammy nominations are proof positive) and nurturing mien, Kapono helps keiki create their own expressive lyrics and songs. OUTDOOR ADVENTURE: “NATURALLY HAWAIIAN” –  12-1pm and 3-4pm. Guided by professional naturalists, discover fascinating flora and fauna endemic to Hawaii, and learn how and why these species evolved. Hiking shoes required. Continues on Sat., Apr. 7, 12-1pm and 3-4pm. “GREEN HARVEST” WITH CHEF APRIL –  121:15pm. No, they don’t mean that kind of green! But it’s a clever name for a garden tour and smoothie workshop, huh? Meet Chef April Matsumoto to learn about organic gardening, harvest produce and sip fresh concoctions. Continues on Sat., Apr. 7, 12-1:15pm. FILM SCREENING: MY KO ALOHA STORY –  12:30-1:30pm. In this feature-length doco, learn how the Okami ‘ohana transformed their business from

plastic fabrication to crafting instruments. PUPPETRY AND BLACK LIGHT FUN FOR KEIKI WITH RACHEL DEBOER –  1-3pm and 3-3:30pm. The brilliant and bright Rachel Deboer–a visual and performance artist–returns to the festival, following her stunning 2011 black light production of “Na ‘Aumakua.” This year, 15 lucky keiki (first come, first served; ages 7-to 12-years-old) will create black light puppets and a play. Parents can stay to help with the creation process and everyone’s encouraged to attend the show, presented in the resort’s theater at 3pm.

LIVE MUSIC: NA MELE HO’IKE O MAUI –  3-4:15pm. Hotel choirs from Ka‘anapali Beach Hotel, The Ritz-Carlton Kapalua, The Sheraton Maui and The Westin Maui show off their vocal talents. Last year’s event earned a standing ovation! CELEBRATION AFTER-HOURS –  9pm-12am (no cover; 21+). What’s the perfect way to end an exciting day of exploration and enrichment? By enjoying the extraordinary Hawaiian falsetto talents of Kamakakehau Fernandez, of course!

SATURDAY, APRIL 7

WORLDS CONVENE: “ALOHA LIVES IN DISTANT LANDS” –  10-11am. An international panel discusses the cross-cultural concept of aloha. Learn how the deeply multifaceted, loving expression of aloha is expressed in distant lands from Tibetan, African, Lakota Sioux and Hawaiian representatives. “THE EVOLUTION OF THE CANOE” –  11:15am12:15pm. The essence of the wa’a (canoe) goes beyond the realm of the ocean. In this insightful presentation, venerable Hawaiian watermen Kimokeo Kapahulehua and Iokepa Nae’ole explain how the spirit and sport of paddling has changed their lives– and the lives of countless others. TASTE OF THE ISLANDS: “GOT POI? ...GOT PLENTY!” –  12:30-1:30pm. Think wine and cheese tasting, but with fresh poi, poke (raw fish salad), and pipi kaula (dried, smoked beef)! Poi is a deliciously goopy pounded paste made of kalo, the staple starch of Polynesia. Learn why this radical root is considered sacred, as well as what ongoing efforts exist to protect its genetic sanctity. Featured varieties at this tasting include Moi from Keanae, Mana Lauloa from Hakipu‘u, and Lehua from Hanalei, plus ulu (breadfruit) from Waihe‘e. Be sure to arrive early, last year’s limu (seaweed) and poke tasting had a line out the door. PERSONAL DISCOVERY: “WHAT KIND OF ANCESTOR WILL YOU BE?” –  1:45-2:30pm. This presentation asks the fascinating question, “What kind of ancestor will you be?” Exploring the answer, Hawaiian artist and historian Brook Kapukuniahi Parker (of the proud Parker Ranch heritage), explains his love for ancient chiefs and how their acceptance of kuleana (responsibility) has shaped he and his family to this day. THINK TANK: “MOVING WITH THE SPEEED OF NATURE” – 2:45-3:45pm. Back in the day, we could only move so fast as our bodies or beasts could carry us. Today, we’re pressing toward the speed of light. But can the rest of the natural world keep up with our new, harried speed? How do we reconcile the rapid difference? A panel of concerned environmentalists explores the pace of the past and present, addressing climactic chances, causes, impacts and adaptations– all through indigenous eyes. THE CELEBRATION LU’AU & SHOW –  6-8:30pm. See our Da Kine Calendar for details. CELEBRATION AFTER-HOURS –  9pm-12am (no cover; 21+). Party it up with a performance by the three-man ensemble Waipuna. The group’s traveled from Oahu to celebrate the official release of their new album, E Ho‘i Mai. ■

KEPA KRUSE

Coconut Wireless (remastered)

(Petroglyph Productions; 2011)  THERE ARE RARE MOMENTS IN LIFE when

you stumble on a diamond in the rough. For me, one of those moments was hearing the smoothly crooned lyrics, “I heard about you through the coconut wireless / I heard about you, know the things that you did,” in Kepa Kruse’s song “Coconut Wireless” (off his latest, likewise named album). I urge anyone who’s ever lived in Hawaii and understands local culture to listen to this native Kauai boy’s contemporary Hawaiian music. Kruse’s self-described “Hawaiian musical escapism” is transfixing (and I’m not just saying that ‘cause he’s a hottie). Im-

pressively self-produced, Kruse’s signature sound fuses R&B beats, soft rock melodies and cutely relevant lyrics loaded with insiders’ insights (best exemplified in tunes like “Green Bottles,” “Honey Girl” and “Back to the Beach”). I’d describe his style as Jack Johnson meets Jack Black, and with tracks like “Wingman” (ooh, ooh, she’s with her girlfriends / so I’m gonna need a wingman”) and “Metaphors” (“if you were a surfboard, I’d try to surf more”), it’s clear dis buggah has a knack for pinpointing culture like a comedian and turning it into auricular pleasure. But before you write this artist off as nothin’ but a shits-and-giggles kind of artist, take note of Kruse’s 2011 Na Hoku Hanohano award for Best R&B Hip Hop album of the year. Whichever way you look at it (even if you just want to look at him), Coconut Wireless is a gem.

Oddly Touching

Slackerpalooza!

The charm and humor of Jeff, Who Lives at Home BY BARRY WURST II

Jeff, Who Lives at Home ★★★★★ Rated R/83 Min.

J 

ason Segal stars as Jeff, a stoned, open-minded slacker who sees patterns in his life that he interprets as the universe talking to him. One morning, he believes a wrong number from someone asking for “Kevin” is a sign that he needs to leave his house and search for the mystical answers that “Kevin” may have. His journey intersects with his brother (played by Ed Helms) who is on his own mission of spying on his wife (Judy Greer), who he believes is being unfaithful. Wonderful new comedy from the Duplass brothers, whose Cyrus was my favorite film of the 2010 Maui Film Festival. Their latest isn’t a total triumph on the scale of Cyrus but is an unpredictable and oddly touching character piece with bust-a-gut laughs. Segal, in a Muppet-less performance, isn’t stretching as much as he’s playing to his

strengths as a lovable oaf. The same goes for Helms, still a scream when his overly cocky characters are having a slow burn and are this-close to a complete breakdown. Greer is first-rate in a heartfelt, mostly serious turn and Rae Dawn Chong, little seen since the 1990s, is excellent in a welcome return to the screen in a pivotal supporting turn. Best of all is Susan Sarandon, who elevates her usual dotty mother role into a sublime portrait of middle-aged loneliness. Her character (Jeff’s mother) rediscovers love when a secret admirer starts leaving her notes in her cubicle at work; watch Sarandon’s eyes when she first learns someone close to her is harboring a secret crush. Sarandon is great here, even when the identity of her admirer is obvious from the start. For a movie so heavily improvised (a trademark of the brothers Duplass), the story feels more like a formula Hollywood comedy than an “edgy” independent film. This is more I Love You, Man than Cyrus but when the laughs are this big, who cares if the movie feels safe? The big climax is especially contrived but

works because it’s well staged and genuinely moving, you won’t realize until later how farfetched it is. Unlike many crude, gross-out farces, this one piles on the laughs and grows increasingly absurd from scene to scene but, like Jeff, is genuinely sweet and wants you to walk away happy. Jeff’s concept of how life works is relatable in some ways and absurd in others. The notion of leaving your house and finding a purpose for your day is simple, childlike and entirely effective, especially if you spend most days on your couch. I used to take the bus everywhere and believed in the power of Synchronicity, in which I’d know my day was going well if I could move from Point A to Point B without complication; when I’d miss my bus, arrive late to work and go home feeling spent,

I suspected that my Synchronicity with life was off. Silly, I know, but when missing one thing in your day results in a domino effect, it made me kind of wonder… The gorgeous music score establishes a mystical mood where Jeff’s zonked POV is either his self-induced madness or something more real. As a meeting of cold skepticism and open-mindedness to one’s spiritual outlook on life, audiences will side with Helms as Jeff’s brother struggles to dismiss then possibly accept Jeff’s stoner spiritualism. As for the movie itself, it made a believer out of me: you’ll walk away smiling… and keep your eye out for a sign from Kevin. ■  To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/1541f

THE LARGEST LIQUOR SELECTION IN HAWAII NOW IN A

NEW THIS WEEK 

JEFF WHO LIVES AT HOME - Comedy - R - This film makes being a joint-toking, Pop Tart-eating 30-yearold–who lives in Mom’s basement–insightful and cool. Read: vindication for Dungeons & Dragons, Magic: The Gathering geeks everywhere. Starring Jason Segel, Ed Helms, Susan Sarandon and Judy Greer. See this week’s Film Critique. 83 min. JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI - Doco - PG - A brilliant meditation on 85-yeard-old sushi master Jiro Ono’s perserverence, perfection and paternal demands. 81 min. MIRROR MIRROR - Family - PG - It’s been 200 years since the Brothers Grimm first published their version of “Schneewittchen und die sieben Zwerge” (i.e. “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves”), so movie goers must now suffer two live action versions of this European fairy tale. Not to be confused with Snow White and the Huntsman, due out this summer. 106 min. SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN - Romantic Comedy/Drama - R - Ewan McGregor stars as an autistic British fisheries scientist who’s commissioned by Yemeni sheikh to bring salmon fishing to their dry river valley. Based on the book of the same name by comedic novelist Paul Torday. 107 min. WRATH OF THE TITANS - Action - PG 13 - Mythologically hot bods, CGI beasts, battles and whatnot. 99 min.

NOW SHOWING

 21 JUMP STREET - Action/Comedy - R - Barry Wurst II writes, “The film is sometimes raunchy in search of easy, cheap laughs, but the best scenes have a crazy, anything-

goes edge.” Starring Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Rob Riggle and Ice Cube. 109 min. 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. 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.

an Woody Harrelson, who “makes a solid impression”] and wear what looks like Elton John’s concert wardrobe.” Huh. Sounds like public high school. 142 min.

2 DOORS DOWN FROM OUR PREVIOUS LOCATION

THE SECRET WORLD OF ARIETTY - G - Animated 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. THIS MEANS WAR - PG 13 - Action/Romantic Comedy - A tale of two best buddies (Chris Pine and Tom Hardy) who are both CIA agents–and both dating the same conniving blond (Reese Witherspoon). 98 min.

JOHN CARTER - PG 13 - Sci-Fi - 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.

TYLER PERRY’S GOOD DEEDS - PG 13 - Romance/ Drama - If Tyler Perry really wanted to do a good deed, he’d stop torturing us with his movies. 111 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.



THE HUNGER GAMES - Action/Sci-Fi - PG 13 “Jennifer Lawrence stars as a young woman living in a futuristic world where teens are entered into a killor-be-killed contest [for] entertainment,” writes Barry Wurst II. “In [this] hugely anticipated adaptation of Suzanne Collin’s novel [of the same name]... all of the adult actors give ovestated performances [‘cept Maui-

LAST CHANCE

CHRONICLE - PG 13 - Action/Horror - This movie is proof positive that three egomaniacal high school boys (wait, is that redundant?) with telekinetic superpowers is the stuff of pure horror. 83 min. GHOST RIDER: SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE - PG 13 - Action/Fantasy - Excuse me, Mr. Cage? Um, your skull’s on fire... 98 min. PROJECT X - R - Fantasy - This is The Blair Witch Project of pubescent delusion.

MOONLIGHT SERIES FEATURING RAUL MIDON – Thu., Mar. 29. Blind since infancy, American singer-songwriter and guitarist, Raul Midon straddles the genres of Latin, folk-pop and jazz with show-stopping vocals and dazzling instrumental technique. Combining his soulful tenor and syncopated, percussive guitar with improvisational mouth trumpet sounds, Midon is an exciting one-man show. $28 / $33. 7:30pm. A&B Amphitheater / Yokouchi Pavilion, MACC (One Cameron Way, Kahului); 242-SHOW (7469); mauiarts.org PHOTOJOURNALIST PETER SIMON: “THROUGH THE LENSE: A LIFE FILLED WITH HISTORY, FRIENDSHIPS, ADDICTIONS” – Thu., Mar. 29.

Temple of Peace (575 Haiku Rd.); 575-5220; templeofpeacemaui.com / petersimon.com DAVID BROMBERG TRIO – Fri., Mar. 30. David Bromberg is a master practitioner of folk, blues and bluegrass, and his trio features Mark Cosgroe (guitar/mandolin/vocals) and Nate Grower (fiddle/mandolin/vocals). Known as a “hired gun” for recording artists, Rolling Stone raves “Bromberg... makes every track shine, like the A-list session man he’s always been”; meanwhile Jerry Jeff Walker says, “[Bromberg’s] the reason man created stringed instruments. David touched them with a lover’s fingers and they moaned that true love right back at him. Wood and wire and flesh spoke.” $28 / $35 / $45 Golden Circle. 7pm doors / 7:30pm show. Iao Theater (68 N. Market St., Wailuku); lazarbear.com “COCONUT ISLAND” WITH THE KIT KAT CLUB CABARET –  Fri., Mar. 30. See This Week’s Picks for more. $10 advance / $15 door. 6:30pm doors / 7:30pm show. Maui Tropical Plantation (Honoapiilani Hwy., Waikapu); facebook.com/kitkatclubcabaret NA ALI’I OF COMEDY – Fri., Mar. 30. For the very first time, five of Hawaii’s comedy legends–Frank De Lima, Ed Kaahea, Mel Cabang, Andy Bumatai and Augie T– unite onstage for what’s sure to be the biggest local comedy show of 2012. De Lima’s a 14-time Na Hoku Hanohano award winner whose family friendly humor has been entertaining the islands (especially school children; as all my local peeps can assuredly recall “Going on a Buta Hunt” and “Peanut Butter and Jelly”) for almost four decades. Kaahea is the last surviving member of the iconic trio Booga Booga, meanwhile the big names of Cabang and Bumatai have been synonymous with Hawaiian comedy for more than 30 years, each appearing on numerous TV commercials and local programs. Augie T.’s an inescapably popular contemporary comedian–his voice and visage all over radio and local TV–and is at the heart of the revival of Hawaii’s comedy scene. $22.50 / $35 VIP (includes meet-and-greet with the artists after the show). 7:30pm. Castle Theater, MACC (One Cameron Way, Kahului); 242 SHOW (7469); mauiarts.org ICKE, ICKE BABY... STOP, COLLABORATE AND LIZARD! – Sat., Mar. 31. One of

David Icke’s a former “professional soccer player, journalist [and] network anchorman with the BBC” turned “full time investigator into who and what is really controlling the world” (davidickebooks.co.uk). Icke’s authored bunches of books including “The Biggest Secret,” which writer Richard Kahn calls the “Rosetta stone for conspiracy junkies.” At this day-long lecture event, Icke will discuss myriad topics including “The Moon Matrix,” his “most staggering revelation” of all, in which he says that the moon is a huge “spacecraft... home to the extraterrestrial group that has been manipulating humanity for aeons.” Presented by Global Media Productions. There will be three meal breaks during the event with pre-sold lunch ($10) and dinner ($15) options made available by Vasi’s Gourmet Catering. (Note: There’s no guarantee that food will be available if not pre-purchased. Visit mauiarts.org to view menu and order.) $39 / $69 / $99. 9am registration / 10am-10pm program. Castle Theater, MACC (One Cameron Way, Kahului); 242SHOW (7469); mauiarts.org AN EVENING WITH W.S. MERWIN – Sat., Mar. 31. W.S. Merwin has been a force in American poetry for 60 years, beginning when W.H. Auden selected his first collection, A Mask for Janus (1952) for the Yale Series of Younger Poets. Though his style has evolved much over his long career, he has remained influential, receiving nearly every major award for poetry, including two Pulitzer prizes: in 1971 for The Carrier of Ladders, and in 2009 for The Shadow of Sirius. In 2010, W.S. Merwin was appointed the Library of Congress’ 17th Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry. This event is co-presented with University of Hawai‘i Foundation. Free (however, the event is ticketed as limited seating is available). 7:30pm. McCoy Studio Theater, MACC (One Cameron Way, Kahului); 242-SHOW (7469); mauiarts.org

THE CELEBRATION OF THE ARTS LU’AU & SHOW –  Sat., Apr. 7. See This Week’s Picks’ special feature on the 20th annual Celebration of the Arts. Held at The Ritz-Carlton Kapalua’s Aloha Garden Ballroom, this lu’au is one of the grandest, most authentic Hawaiian feasts in all the islands. In this culminating event of the festival weekend, resort chefs cook-up a sprawling Pacific fusion buffet, meanwhile Clifford Nae’ole’s own ‘ohana prepare traditional Hawaiian delicacies like opihi (limpets) and ‘opae (freshwater shrimp). Plus, enjoy performances by Uluwehi Guerroro, the cast of ‘Ulalena, Halau Ka’ulu’okala, and Na Mele Ho’ike O Maui. While almost all the festival activities are free, such a feast (of course) cannot be. But, at just $90 for adults and $45 for keiki (5-to 12-years-old), it’s a steal of a deal. However, this event sells out quickly, so purchasing advance tickets is highly recommended. Visit celebrationofthearts.org for more information. $45 / $90. 6-8:30pm.

An assortment of award winning deserts and a Jazz cocktail are included.

KULA KID

The A-Train Derailed: An Untimely Farewell BY ANU YAGI

I

f the last two Friday nights have felt emptier than a bum’s beer bottle, here’s the cause: without warning, “The A-Train,” KRKH 97.3 FM’s Friday night rock n’ roll show, was forced into an unwarranted and untimely end. As with infants and ejaculation, there ain’t nothin’ good about being premature. On the morning of Monday, March 12, The ATrain’s host–Maui’s beloved radio personality “Johnny A”–was served a surprise proverbial pink slip from H. Hawaii Media. And this, despite being the radio group’s top sales producer for the more than three years he worked as their marketing professional. Taking the high road, Johnny simply cites “a difference of opinion” with the owner of the company. Entirely a labor of love, no one–including Johnny–was ever paid for workin’ on the A-Train railroad. It was simply a chance to party to some great rock tunes, celebrate sponsors and welcome another weekend in paradise. “I’m very disappointed I can’t go on the air to do The A-Train anymore,” Johnny told me. “But it really sucks that I never had the chance to say goodbye to our listeners.” The A-Train was the last live show on the KRKH station, one of just two live shows left in all of H. Hawaii Media (which also owns KONI 104.7 FM and KRYL 106.5 FM). The station’s other live shows–Ace’s Radio Rehab and Spike’s Sonic Playground, which Johnny also launched–met a similar end last Fall. See, live radio’s an endangered species. Today’s technology allows for everything to be pre-recorded and redone to the point of losing spontaneity’s charm (one of The A-Train’s most winning qualities). “A programmer’s four-hour shift’s now relegated to a 40 minute shift,” Johnny explained. “The quality’s terrible. You might as well be listening to an iPod.” (Read: enjoy your icky Nickleback, folks.) Fortunately, the pendulum’s swinging back toward the human

element, as (most) company owners are realizing that live shows, which connect with real people in real ways, get better ratings– and better ratings mean a better bottom line. The A-Train began in November 2008, building off Johnny’s popular early ‘90s shows “The Bone Jar” and “The Monkey Spankers” (on Pacific Radio Group’s KLHI 101.1 FM). In my metalhead high school years, I listened to these programs’ wild antics with rapt admiration. Lo and behold, this “Kula Kid” (kind of) grew up, and since last summer I’ve been–er, um, was–an A-Train co-host. (PS: I’m not sure how many people get a gig by making an impromptu hymen joke, but that’s how I did it.) At the risk of missing someone (forgive me if I do), I’ll at least mention the core crew of boys–”Pistol Pete,” “Cuzin Larry” and “Old Hickory”–whose witty personalities were the crux of the show, alongside our conductor, Johnny. But because no one likes a sausage fest (unless its literally sausage), and because Johnny’s balder than a bowling ball, he had to get a harem. So too, applause is due to hottie co-hosts like “Lovely Lana,” “Holly Rocks” and “Knockout Natalia.” Plus, I’d be remiss to not mention “Abe’s Logic,” who composed each of our theme songs and segment drops. My time on The A-Train was an education: musically, professionally and personally. Every week I learned a little more from Johnny’s understated, consummate cool. He’s the kind of guy who makes me wish I was in the US Marine Corps, too (he served from ‘84’88, at Camp Pendelton, CA, Twentynine Palms, CA, and Quantico, VA, and abroad in Okinawa, Japan and the Philippines). But I’m the kind of girl who during commercial breaks can be found in the stairwell, sneaking tokes and ciggies and swigs of anything with a bite that lasts ‘til morning. The day after the show’s demise, I had a somber lunch in Ma’alaea with Johnny, K-Rock Kara and fellow journo Trish “The Dish” Smith (who, since the beginning of the show, had a lively

“What’s Going On” community segment). The owners of Beach Bums–Skip Hildreth and David Mecklenburg–saw Johnny, and approached him to re-up their radio ads, so Johnny had to give them the news. The restaurant owners gushed, “Sorry to hear that, man... We’ll follow you anywhere... It’s the most effective advertising we’ve ever done... Your creativity connects with people in a way that no other ad can, and we can’t thank you enough.” I think I speak for the rest of the A-Train crew when I say that I can’t thank you enough either, Johnny. We’ll all follow you anywhere. “It sounds cliche,” said Johnny, “but if there’s one thing I’ve learned in life it’s that when bad things happen, you just gotta roll with it.” But without a chance to say farewell on his own platform, Johnny prepared a few parting words that I’d like to share on mine: “The A-Train was on every Friday at the same time [3-9pm] for three and a half years. It has been one of the best experiences of my life–and I thank all the good people who helped make it happen every week, my co-hosts, and my sponsors. Most of all I thank the folks that tuned in an enjoyed our show. We had such a blast every Friday, and it always blew my mind that you guys actually enjoyed all the goofy shit we pulled on the air. Knowing that so many people listened and had fun will stay with me always. Thank you.” ■  To read more Kula Kid with links and photos and stuff, and to leave comments, visit mauifeed.com/kulakid  To share or save: mt.hy.pr/1541k

QUIZunderstood ANSWERS

...to questions from page 4



1: A–Officially opening their new electric vehicle recharging station.

BY CAERIEL CRESTIN ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19)

This week, wise advice, insight, or life-changing perspective is likely to arrive through the words of a child, crazy person, or drunken idiot you know. Listen very carefully. Naturally, most of what they say will be laughable, discardable nonsense, and should be instantly dismissed. However, there’s at least one priceless gem in there that you’d do well to heed. Miss or ignore it at your peril, or you’ll pay consequences you can’t easily afford. They won’t remember the moment clearly enough to say I told you so, later—but you’ll hear it ringing in your ears, anyway.  TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20)



2: C–“This has nothing to do with me running for congress.”

 LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22)



You suck at keeping secrets—and consequently really shouldn’t be asked to. As a friend, you should be able to keep even the most volatile secret quiet for a few days, or not spill the beans about someone’s surprise party. But more than that is really beyond you—which is important information to share before you become privy to any more confidences. Resist the temptation to hear juicy news you’ll feel compelled to spread. If you think you’re about to hear something you shouldn’t, be fair and speak up to let them know: your vault only stays locked for so long.

3: D–To raise awareness about the dangers of distracted driving. 

 SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21)

Enforcing personal boundaries is the most natural thing in the world for you—except when their violation comes from a completely unexpected direction: perhaps someone you trust so indiscriminately that it never occurred to you that they could intrude, for example. Then, of course, bringing it to their attention could be quite awkward, especially since you effectively gave them carte blanche into your life. Nevertheless, not speaking up goes against the grain of who you are, so please say something. Hopefully, this is someone who’s close enough to you to understand, and once you’ve made your point, should respect it.

Forcing someone to live up to the promises they made isn’t easy, and not always advisable. Sometimes it’s better—and it’s almost always easier—to simply let them off the hook. Resist the temptation to do so this time around, though. You’d be doing both them, and yourself, a grave disservice. You might be able to forgive them for letting you down—but they would have a hard time forgiving themselves. Consider it a gift, sticking to your guns and making them come through. Even if it’s difficult, you’ll both be glad, in the end, that you did.



 SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21)

Sometimes it’s your job to stick up for those who can’t or won’t defend themselves. While being a stalwart and steadfast advocate for those who need it is an admirable goal, this isn’t one of those times. This particular battle isn’t being fought because they’d rather keep the peace, not because they’re unable to fight it. They’re perfectly capable; they’ve just made the choice to let things go, instead. So you can see how taking up the standard and charging into the fray on their behalf might not be appreciated—no matter how good your intentions.  CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22)

While it’s true that sometimes you’re high maintenance, and demand more than you’re probably strictly “due,” this isn’t one of those times. Basic human decency is something we all have a right to, and if you’re not getting it, it’s fair for you to call it out. Before you do, however, consider this: instead of sticking to your guns and fighting yet another battle, forget for a minute that you’re in the right, and consider other options—like simply forgetting about it. Do you, after all, really need to be here? Is it really worth the energy? You might be happier, if you can, just letting this one go.  LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22)

My improv coach said to me, “There are no good or bad choices, only fun choices and not-fun choices.” While this doesn’t necessarily carry over completely into real life, there is something to it. Often, your decisions really can be boiled down to what will, ultimately, create the most fun for all involved (especially, but not exclusively, you). The best part of choosing the fun option whenever you can is that it’s also frequently the “right” option—something you’ll discover after the fact. When in doubt, this week, choose the option that’ll ultimately lead to more fun. Even if it turns out to be the “wrong” choice, at least, you know, you’ll have had a good time figuring it out. 

Once you leave for the greener pastures next door, you may discover that not only are they less nice than they seemed from afar, but they’re actually much worse than the place you just ditched them for. Of course, by then, it’s usually much too late to hit the rewind button and return to the relatively plush circumstances you abandoned, so you have to stew in your regret, instead. This time, since you haven’t yet made the leap you’re contemplating, you have the luxury of really investigating the situation you’re thinking of migrating to, before you leave this one. It may feel pretty cheap and selfish to so callously explore your other options, and it is—but it’s also wiser than just making a blind leap of faith you’d later regret.  CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19)

You’re not obligated to help others when they’ve taken on too much. That’s still something you can do, of course, but feeling forced into it (perhaps because their intentions are so good and honorable, and yours are more selfish) is hardly a happy scenario. As noble as their efforts are, they’re still the result of their decisions, not yours. While you may wish you were as honorable and amazing as they are, their path isn’t your path. Do what you can feel good about doing, then let the rest go. If they want to be a saint, let them do it mostly under their own steam.

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20)

LOCATED ABOVE BLACKIES PIT STOP IN KIHEI • 874-1040

 AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18)

You know all too well how intoxicating and liberating a taste of freedom can be—which is why it may be hard for you to allow someone else to experience it. This week, you need to conquer your fears and remember that while they, too, will surely adore the sweet taste of a broadened horizon, they won’t necessarily react to it in the same ways you would. In fact, any hint of clinginess or restraint from you, and that freedom will just taste that much more wonderful. Aim for affectionate and encouraging open-mindedness, no matter your fears. Acting on those fears will only, after all, make them more likely to come true.

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22)

There are few people more stubbornly persistent than you Virgos. When you’re right, it’s almost impossible for you to drop the subject until everyone’s figured that out. Sometimes, however, it becomes obvious that you’ll just have to agree to disagree, since you could both talk until the cows come home and never change each other’s minds. However, this may never become clear to the other person. That’s when it’s time to take matters into your own hands, and simply end the discussion. Cut them off. Walk away if necessary. That’s this week’s challenge. This will be insanely hard for you, but it still must be done. Good luck.

PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20)

Being the bearer of bad tidings is a huge drag. And there’s something to be said for staying out of something that’s really none of your business. However, if positions were reversed, and you’d want someone to tell you the kind of information you’re now privy to, you may have an obligation to share what you know, and deal with the (probably mostly negative) fallout from that revelation. Shirking this undesirable duty isn’t something you should feel good about, even if you can get away with it. Grit your teeth and find a way to spill the beans.
