MORE LOCAL FOOD!

I would like to add to your list of restau-

rants making a difference in using local ingredients is the Sure Thing Burger in Lahaina (“MauiTime 2012 Food Issue,” Mar. 29, 2012). Their burgers are made with beef from Maui cattle that is prepared by a local butcher who uses their unique recipe in preparing the ground beef. They went as far as to source-out a baker here on Maui that uses their recipe to make excellent buns. It makes for by far the best burger on Maui. Make sure to give them a try and of course make a trip over to Ono Gelato for dessert where we also buy local organic ingredients from farmers such as James Simpliciano to make our gelato and sorbetto.

MMM... HOSTESS BARS

Try follow the money, honey (Coconut

Wireless, Mar. 29, 2012). Maybe [then you] can find reason for why “the LC really loves its hostess bars.”

-Howel Leigh, via Mauitime.com

So Anthony wants to be snooty about

hostess bars? Please watch your attitude. Jus because the culture you come from fears something, doesn’t mean it isn’t perfectly acceptable to a culture without the

same blind spots.

-Bradley Hall, via Mauitime.com



ICKE, ICKE, BABY

David Icke says that he is just seeking the

truth, but does he himself know the Truth (“In/Famous Conspiracy Theorist David Icke: Truth Seeker or Total Psycho?” Mar. 22, 2012)? There is only one Truth, and outside of that One, N-O-T-H-I-N-G else matters. When you get the heart of God, then you can pray out what matters to Him. The Bible says, “My children are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” Not nonsense lizard knowledge, knowledge of the One. Don’t waste your time, use it wisely in a wise way, because the end will come soon. No one knows their own dates and times. Life is a flickering candle blown by the wind, so secure for yourself an eternal future because hell, well, it’s for real.

-“Bloodwashedlinen,” via Mauifeed.com

It would be nice to have people who are a bit more informed and less juvenile in their presentation cover someone of the caliber of David Icke. This was painful to read and full of misinformation. Not to mention it casts aspersions on “the locals.” But so clouded with disrespect and entitlement as the article is, I suppose we are to believe Mr. [sic] [Anuhea] Yagi expects even the “bumpkin” locals, to suffer his [sic] misinformed scorn…

been too open when asked to share details about the proposed county budget. “As council member [Riki] Hokama said at the Budget meeting ‘I need to see numbers,’ not self-promotional advertisements of what you [want] the public to believe,” states the letter, which appears to have been sent to every local media outlet and government official on Maui. “It’s bad enough that the departments create and report their own performance measures– might as well take advantage of the fact that Maui is [one of] the only counties not to have an independent auditor. And when the public asks for this detailed information in order to make informed decisions? We are referred to a STATE website, to fill

So really, how open is the government that runs the County of Maui? We throw around terms like “open government” all the time, but what does it mean for the actual citizens who pay for government with their taxes? The last few weeks I’ve had a small disagreement with Maui County Council Chairman Danny Mateo over his support for the now-deferred HB 2742, a loathsome bill that would have exempted the County of Maui from the state’s Sunshine Law. The Sunshine Law lays down strict requirements for quorums, meeting in public and properly posting agendas, and is pretty much working as it is, says groups like Pontanilla Vs. Keith-Agaran Common Cause Hawaii. Of course, Mateo insists that his support for HB 2742 doesn’t in any way negate his own support for “transparency and public participation in government,” because, really, can a guy get elected in this day and age for saying anything other than that? There is new evidence, however, that the County of Maui is pretty open, as far as governments can be. In fact, it’s so open that it recently received an award saying exactly that. “The Maui County website has been awarded a ‘Sunny Award’ for having one of the ‘most transparent government websites in America’ according to the Editors of Sunshine Review,” said County Assistant Communications Director Ryan Piros in a Mar. 30 email. “Sunshine Review President Mike Barnhard informed Maui County Council Chairman Danny Mateo about the award in a March 5 letter. In the letter Barnhard states that the Maui County website scored an ‘A’ on the Sunshine Review’s Transparency Checklist. This is good, but you should keep a few things in mind. First, that Sunshine Review is about two years old. Secondly, that it’s a wiki, meaning that just about anyone can sign up and edit the content on its site. And third, that “transparency” doesn’t just mean free and unfettered access to the information government officials want public, but all government information. Apparently, I’m not the only one skeptical about the county’s award-winning commitment to transparency. On Mar. 31, I re-Woman ceived an anonymous but thoughtful letter to the editor criticizing the Sunshine Review award because county officials haven’t

out forms which are then given to lawyers to decide if the public is permitted to see how tax dollars are being spent?” Of course, the massive 600-plus page proposed operating budget and similarly sized capital improvement budget are posted on the county’s website, but understanding it is a challenge for anyone not holding a CPA’s license. But if a slightly known non-profit organization wants to give an award to the county for merely meeting the standards of openness required under state laws, who are we to argue?

COUNTY OF MAUI EVEN MORE SUNSHINEY!

According to writer Susan Halas, termedout Maui County Councilman Joe Pontanilla announced at a Mar. 28 campaign event that he will run against incumbent state Representative Gil Keith-Agaran for the 9th District House seat, which includes Kahului and Paia. Since both are Democrats, this has all the makings of a rough primary battle: on one side, you have the intellectual, Twitter-savvy Keith-Agaran, and on the other you have the go-along, get-along Pontanilla who packs powerful union support and easily won election after election to the much bigger county council seat representing Kahului.

MAUI GETS NEW OLD BUSES!

It really seems that when it comes to public transportation, Maui is most definitely Honolulu’s younger cousin. How else to explain the Mar. 30 press release I got from the county saying that the City and County of Honolulu decided to give Maui a few 18-year-old buses? “The three 40-foot transit buses are being retired from TheBus to make way for new replacement buses, which are part of a fleet management plan to maintain the average age of TheBus fleet at a desired target age,” said Louise Kim McCoy of the Honolulu Mayor Peter Carlisle’s office in a press release forwarded by Maui officials. “The retired buses being transferred to Maui County are fully operational, but are at the end of their planned service life with TheBus fleet. If they were not transferred to Maui, these buses would be sold at an auction.” See, it’s not so bad. The hand-me-down buses were merely “retired” because they reached “the end of the planned service life.” Later in the release, Carlisle himself even calls the buses “older but still productive,” as though he was worried about upsetting the buses’ delicate emotional sensibilities. In any case, Maui Mayor Alan Arakawa should get some kind of appreciation for putting the best spin on this. “The Maui Bus system is one of the fastest growing public transit systems in the nation right now,” said Arakawa in the press release. “We have more passengers waiting at our bus stops every day and no room on our buses. This transfer from the City and County of Honolulu is helping us to address that problem. We wish to thank Mayor Carlisle and the Oahu residents for rescuing our Maui Bus riders from being stranded. We truly appreciate their aloha.” ■ anthony@mauitime.com + @apignataro  To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/1542n1

LOCAL PLUGS

BY JEN RUSSO

Talia Gangini

TALIA GANGINI PADDLES FOR THE HUI

Talia Gangini will combine two of her great passions, art and ocean sports, in an event this weekend called Craft for a Cause. Gangini will paddle from Maui to Lanai in a one-person outrigger canoe on Saturday, then from Maui to Molokai on a stand-up paddle board the following Saturday. Gangini is inviting community members to sponsor her journey by the mile, with all proceeds donated to the Hui No’ueau’s youth scholarship program. Her goal is to raise between $3,625 to $14,500, to provide tuition for Maui kids that would otherwise not be able to attend a course at the Hui No’eau Visual Center. “My quest is to raise at the least $3,625 to allow 25 of Maui’s keiki, who would normally not be able, to take art classes at Maui’s finest art center, the Hui No’eau,” says Gangini. “I know there are a lot of different causes to support, but I’m starting by making a difference in my own community.” Taking the time between competing in Mexico at the third annual Punta Sayulita Longboard & Stand-Up Paddle Classic, placing third in the SUP Elite Race and training for both the upcoming Waikiki Paddle Festival and Maui’s Olukai Maliko race, Gangini created this fundraiser for the island’s youth. Trilogy will provide the escort sailboat to ensure that she arrives safely. At 14, Gangini started taking jewelry classes at the Hui No’eau. From there she carved out a jewelry design business called Pashey Designz that won national press after some of

her work appeared on the cover of the 2009 Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition. “We are completely wowed by Talia’s generosity and grace,” says Hui Youth Programs & Marketing Manager Kelly McHugh. “When she approached me asking if this ‘was OK with us,’ I practically buckled down crying, feeling so touched to have played a part in a program that this young woman felt compelled to support. She is an incredible, incredible artist and human being–and really sets the stage for future young philanthropists and the capability they have to make Maui a better place.” Gangini has partnered with the non-profit Maliko Water Sports for the fundraiser. The suggested $2 per mile donation for Talia’s 42-mile journey can be made out to Maliko Water Sports by sending a check to 1026 Haiku Rd., Haiku HI 96708 but any amount is greatly appreciated. For more information or to donate via Paypal, go to taliagangini. tumblr.com/craftforacause. 

SNIP GETS SNIPPED AT MAUI HUMANE SOCIETY

Time is up early for the Maui Humane

Society’s Spay Neuter Incentive Program (SNIP), which provides coupons for reducedrate sterilization for pets. The program is administered at no cost to taxpayers by the Maui Humane Society (MHS) with the funds it receives from the county. This year it met an early demise because funds were depleted as of March 5, earlier than usual. The coupons were distributed when the veterinarian, client or other animal welfare group calls to let MHS know that surgeries are scheduled. MHS then faxes the coupon to the veterinary facility, where it’s filled out and signed, confirming surgeries are completed, and then faxed back at the end of the month. MHS then reimburses the facility, based on the discounts earned for the animal. Discounts vary from $15 to $50 depending on the animal. MHS says that 1,010 animals were sterilized during this fiscal year. New initiatives by SPCA, like the mass spay neuter in January, utilized 164 coupons; 9th Life also utilized 61 coupons throughout the year, which may be contributing to the higher demand for coupons. Jocelyn Bouchard, CEO of MHS, does not believe that this will

have an increase in animal population in Maui as their in-house Spay/Neuter Assistance and Referral Program (SNARP) is still ongoing and has funding. “Options are still be available to people who need financial assistance,” says Bouchard. “We expect to see an increase in our in-house program. However, if private vets don’t refer people and/or if people wait for the coupons to be available again, we could see an increase in unwanted/accidental litters which will mean that the population will increase. This program is privately funded–restricted donations from individual donors, grants written for the program, pet banks in the community and any costs the client can afford for the procedure all go towards this program. Our budget for that is based on funds available. Thankfully, we have not run out of funds for this program yet and spend approximately $72,000 per year on this program. The exact amount is hard to pinpoint, since salaries, supplies, etc. can overlap with other programs operated by the vet department. But this is a conservative figure.” The discount per SNIP coupon is $15 for a cat neuter, $25 for a cat spay, $25 for a dog neuter and $50 for a dog spay. The annual budget for 2011-2012 fiscal year was $35,000. It can cost up to $500 for a dog spay and the Maui Humane Society urges anyone who may have any challenges with paying to call them at 808-877-3616 for more info or to book an appointment for their SNARP program. “We utilize that program for people who cannot afford to do the surgery elsewhere and work with clients so that money need not be the reason they do not have their pet sterilized,” says Bouchard. The SNIP program has run out of funds before, but usually just a few weeks before the end of the June 30 fiscal year. This is the earliest they’ve seen funds run dry. MHS usually distributes the coupons until the money runs out, but they’re considering having a monthly cap to ensure funds run through the year for the next fiscal year. ■ jen@mauitime.com + @jenrusso  To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/1542n2

NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY CHUCK SHEPARD

PEOPLE OF FAITH: GPS NAVIGATOR USERS

In a world of advancing technology and declining map-reading skills, some GPS navigator users blindly over-rely on the devices, and News of the Weird has reported enough of their predicaments to mark the category “no longer weird.” However, three Japanese students on holiday near Brisbane, Australia, in March created a new standard for ignoring common sense. Bound for North Stradbroke Island (about eight miles offshore), the driver (according to authorities cited by the local Bayside Bulletin) apparently put maps and eyesight aside, in favor of the all-powerful Navigator, which had instructed him to proceed. As news spread on the Internet, photographers rushed to capture the car, halfburied in sand. (In the students’ defense, the beach seemed to extend to the horizon at low tide–although the word “island” might have deserved more respect.)



THE VILLAGE IDIOT

The entire village (almost!) of Sodeto, Spain, shared the grand prize in the country’s huge Christmas lottery in December according to the New York Times, earning each of the 70 households the equivalent of at least $130,000. The joint buy-in of tickets is a town ritual, but one resident missed the canvassing: filmmaker Costis Mitsotakis, who said he was happy that everyone else was happy. (The dark side of winning: Hucksters flooded the town from all over the country.)



WORKPLACE THEFT!

Anthony McDaniel, 47, voluntarily returned to North Carolina from his new home in Texas in February after being charged with embezzlement by his old employer, says the Greensboro News-Record. The owner of Fayetteville’s Skibo Skillet (now out of business) accused McDaniel of having pocketed meatballs, corn on the cob and anchovy dip while he worked there.



MAKE YOURSELF AT HOME

Keith Davis, 46, was caught red-handed in Ashley Murray’s house in South Bend, Ind., in February and charged with burglary. Murray, though, said she had mixed feelings because, while there, Davis had folded Murray’s clothes and vacuumed the house. According to WNDU-TV, police said that some drug or other had made Davis believe he was in his own home.



FAMILY VALUES

What Christmas gift would be appropriate for the seven-year-old daughter of Britain’s notorious specimen of plastic surgery known as the “Human Barbie”? For little “Poppy” Burge, it was a gift certificate worth the equivalent of about $11,000 for future liposuction (redeemable beginning at age 18). According to London’s Daily Mail, Mom Sarah had already given her a voucher for breast augmentation.

(Poppy, developing her early-onset need for attention: “I can’t wait to be like Mummy with big boobs. They’re pretty.”) Mom, who recently turned 51, celebrated with about $80,000 worth of additional plastic surgery to run her lifetime total to the equivalent of (depending on source consulted) $800,000 to $1 million.



ADMIRABLE WORK ETHIC

Sheriff’s detectives told the Everett, Wash., Daily Herald in January that they had recently tracked down a 21-year-old man who confessed to stealing checks from the Money Tree store in Lynnwood, Wash., and forging signatures. According to the detectives, the man was clear about his motive: “I don’t have an addiction. I don’t need to use drugs. I [was] doing this to show my parents that I can make it on my own, without them.”

WISCONSITES, DOING IT THE HARD WAY

In October, Robbie Suhr, 48, of Pleasant Prairie, Wis., sought the affections of the young exchange student living with Suhr and his wife and children, but she had so far declined. According to police cited in a WTMJ-TV report, a disguised Suhr snatched the woman one night, intending to tie her up, leave, and then return undisguised to “rescue” her. However, she fought back, sending the masked man fleeing.



IT’S EVERYWHERE!

Two ministers in the Indian state of Karnataka were pressured into resigning in February after allegedly being spotted watching pornography on a cellphone in the state legislature, according to BBC News. Minister Laxman Savadi said he was actually doing research on the dangers of “rave” parties. And the Daily Mail reported that a 54-year-old court clerk at Inner London Crown Court was caught by his judge looking at pornography during the victim’s testimony at a notorious rape trial. He said he was just “bored” and admitted previously browsing porn in court.

LEAST COMPETENT CRIMINALS

One of the largest methamphetamine busts in U.S. history was made in March by police in Palo Alto, Calif., who used the popular FindMy-iPad app. Apparently, someone at the drug house had stolen the iPad, and police turned on the owner’s global-positioning “app,” pointing to an apartment complex in Santa Clara County. Almost 800 pounds of meth was confiscated, with a street value of about $35 million. Said the father of the iPad owner in the San Jose Mercury News, “They have $35 million, and they can’t go out and buy an iPad?” ■ chuck@mauitime.com  To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/1542n2

OR, HOW THE STATE OF HAWAII INTENDS TO SPEND MORE THAN $1 BILLION EXPANDING KAHULUI AIRPORT

T

By Anthony Pignataro

here’s a quaint sleepiness to Kahului Airport that’s undeniable to even the most hardened air traveler. Sure, finding a parking space can take a few minutes, and require a few minutes walk, there’s often a line at ticketing and getting through the TSA choke point can be a major pain, but once a prospective passenger is through and riding the escalator up to the terminal, there’s nothing but wide open space ahead. For those arriving on island, the terminal is simple, straightforward and not the least bit daunting. In many ways, the small but not cramped terminal is a great way for visitors to decompress after their flight. Now, all that may be changing. There’s a new airport access road coming soon to Kahului. Then, over the next few decades, construction crews will extend the airport’s Runway 2-20 from 7,000 to 9,600 feet and Runway 5-23 from 5,000 to 7,000 feet. They’ll also add more gates and greatly expand the terminal, move all commuter parking and create a new, consolidated rental car center that’s more or less where the current airport offices sit. If all this sounds familiar, it’s because the state talked about expanding the airport back in the 1980s and ‘90s. It was incredibly controversial and divisive, with a coalition of residents rising up over the proposal’s possible impact on nearby wildlife (Kanaha Pond sits next to the airport) as well as increased noise and pollution–issues that will certainly arise again. For instance, during a May 1996 hearing on the airport environmental impact report, 55 people spoke out against the expansion plans while just six supported it, according to Mansel Blackford’s 2001 book Fragile Paradise. The state eventually dumped the expansion plan in 2000, but only because funding dried up.

I

n fact, air travel demand never really exploded on Maui the way transportation officials were predicting 20 years ago. And though there’s still not really any air travel demand pushing for a new airport expansion, and state officials still admit they have no idea how they’d pay for such work, the odds are actually pretty strong that it’s going to happen this time. Construction is scheduled to start in 2014, and run for the next 20 years (and beyond, perhaps). Because extending Runway 5-23 will consume the current cluster of rental car companies, they will have to move first, which will necessitate moving commuter parking. Only then, in 2015 or so, can the runway extensions begin. In 2025, relocating the commuter terminal and expansion of the main terminal and helicopter facility will take place. Post-2035 projects include realigning Hana Highway as it passes the airport and the possible construction of a new 8,500-foot runway. This isn’t how it was supposed to be. “None of this was supposed to happen for six years,” said Dan Meisenzahl, spokesman for the state Department of Transportation. “But it just makes sense to do it now.” The reason is that because the Federal Aviation Administra-

10

APRIL 5, 2012

tion announced late last year that it would no longer pay for patchwork repairs to the airport’s runways, airport officials have to do a complete runway resurfacing. Since they’re going to be doing all that, the logic goes, you might as well move up the old airport expansion timetable and extend the runways to accommodate newer commercial airliners since the runway will be closed anyway and we don’t know when such an opportunity might arise again. Of course, there is another option: simply close the runways for three months or so and do just the resurfacing. “The legislative leadership from Maui [Representative Joe Souki and Senators J. Kalani English and Shan Tsutsui] are adamantly opposed to closing Runway 5-23,” said Dan Meisenzahl. “They will extend 5-23 because they can’t shut it down.” To alleviate fears in Spreckelsville that the state would use the runway extensions to reorient the runway focus at the airport and launch airliners over the heads of homeowners in that wealthy enclave, Meisenzahl insisted that Runway 2-20–which points out over the ocean–would remain the airport’s primary runway. “But while we’re working on 2-20, it might be the primary runway for a year,” he added. Because state transportation officials are talking about run-

way extension now, rather than six years from now, looking over the colorful tables they hand out regarding air travel demand is a curious experience. In fact, the Department of Transportation’s own projections show stagnant or just a minimal increase in air travel demand through 2035, the year the Master Plan schedule shows the majority of airport projects as being completed. Let’s start with a chart curiously labeled “Maui County Visitor Forecasts 2011-2035” (it actually shows visitor figures dating back to 1999). It says visitor arrivals peaked in 2007 at nearly 2.5 million, but stand at less than 2 million today. By 2035, the chart says the number is only expected to rise to 2.25 million. Other tables show similar, if not more damning evidence of stagnant air travel demand. Indeed, the “Interisland Operations Forecast” table shows that flights between the Hawaiian islands (which make up the majority of flights in and out of Kahului Airport) will climb from the current 20,000 annual figure to 25,000–the same number of operations as 2009. Similarly, the “Interisland Passenger Forecast” table shows the slightly more than 3 million passengers using the airport in 2035, which is more than the current 2.5 million but way less than the 3.3 million who passed through it in 2007.


“Why do we need to expand?... The projections don’t warrant it.”

-Northshore farmer Greg Westcott

“You don’t build when you need it, because when you need it, it is too late,...You need to plan ahead and build ahead for the next 20 years.” -Planner with R.M. Towill Corp. Chester Koga

AIRPORT EXPANSION BREAKDOWN (Partial List) EXTEND RUNWAY 2-20  $15.44 MILLION EXTEND RUNWAY 5  $14.85 MILLION EXTEND RUNWAY 23  $2.97 MILLION CLOSE HALEAKALA ROAD NEAR THE AIRPORT  $1.20 MILLION REALIGN 5-23 TAXIWAYS  $11.75 MILLION RELOCATE COMMUTER PARKING  $784,000

E

ven the friendliest tables to the airport expansion crowd hardly show exploding growth. The table “Overseas Operations 2007-2035” only shows the number of Kahului Airport flights away from Hawaii rising from the current 9,000 a year to about 11,000 over the next quarter century. Similarly, the “Overseas Passenger Forecast” table shows the current annual passenger level rising from slightly less than 3 million today to about 3.5 million in 2035. Northshore farmer Greg Westcott, who has fought Kahului Airport expansion for the last few decades, noticed these numbers during the Nov. 3, 2011 Citizens Advisory Committee meeting on the proposed Airport Master Plan at the Kaunoa Senior Center in Paia. “Why do we need to expand?” Westcott asked the project planners, according to the meeting minutes. “The projections don’t warrant it.” The meeting minutes show that Chester Koga, the planner with R.M. Towill Corp., which developed the Master Plan and briefed the CAC, acknowledged Westcott’s observation that the figures don’t show an increase in demand, but said that essentially that doesn’t matter. “You don’t build when you need it, because when you need it, it is too late,” Koga said, according to the minutes. “You need to plan ahead and build ahead for the next 20 years.” Funding the airport expansion project is a similar problem for state officials. In fact, how the state intends to pay for so much expansion is, at least at this level of planning, still, “up in the air,” according to Meisenzahl.

“The Legislature’s taking it up now,” he added. Of course, paying for something like runway resurfacing and extension is easy–the FAA pays for it. But things like consolidating the car rental companies is dicier, because that’s a profit-making business. On paper, airport officials can dip into the state’s rental car surcharge fund, which was set up for transportation projects like this. Except, Meisenzahl said, the administration used the fund last year to help balance the budget. The bill SB 2946 attempts to rectify the situation, and it’s slowly moving throught the House–on Apr. 3, the House Finance Committee passed the measure with some amendments. But until the Legislature sorts it all out, Meisenzahl said the department simply didn’t know how they’d work out the airport expansion funding. They apparently have plenty of time to do so. Work on the rental car consolidation isn’t suppose to take place for another two years, and before then will be at least an Environmental Assessment (Meisenzahl said he wasn’t sure an EIS would be necessary for the runway extension since it’ll be taking place on the existing airport footprint) and loads of public hearings. This is only the beginning of the effort to expand Kahului Airport. But given the near-certainty that state transportation officials have over its certitude, there’s no better time than the present to start planning for it. ■ anthony@mauitime.com + @apignataro  To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/1542L

Wings And Things If you love chicken wings, then Just Wing It BY JEN RUSSO

Michael Capuono and Brandon Pazilla PHOTOS BY SEAN MICHAEL HOWER

JUST WING IT Piilani Shopping Center Kihei 808-875-9464

A 

friend of mine from Texas who was living on Maui once told me, “Man, the only food I really miss from home that you can’t get here is chicken wings.” Now I like chicken wings just as much as any other, especially when served with a beer, but it was an eye opener to discover that wings have such a fanatic following. Thousands of restaurants serve them and it’s become trendy to open a niche restaurant revolving around just that one menu item. In fact, Just Wing It, one of Maui’s newest restaurants, is banking on those wings fans but plans to make some converts, too. The key is in their menagerie of house-made sauces. They renovated and opened in the old Dairy Queen spot at the food court next to Kihei Safeway. Restaurateurs and owners Michael Capuano (Wow Wee Candy Bars) and David Gamberdell (Fiesta Time Wailuku) felt the time and space was right to introduce their chicken-wing-plus-sauceand-sides concept. The casual eatery features eye-catching bright yellow and red, from the logo to the wall menu to the walls themselves, which are also printed with chicken footprints. The wings come fast from the fryer since they pre-bake them so they heat through quickly. Then they take your wings and toss them in the sauce of your choice. These little boned bits of meat are juicy, and their size is generous.

Just Wing It’s saucy business is addicting. They feature so many sauces for juicing your fried wings and other things that it’s difficult to choose just one. They are all made there, from the garlic parmigiano, which is a thick, tangy and cheesy combo, to their chunky bleu cheese and volcano made with blended habeneros. I lost count at 12. Then there’s the wasabi garlic ginger–an amazing concoction that we couldn’t stop dipping everything into. It features a bright horseradish zing with garlic and ginger and a very light, thin consistency. It would be great on sashimi, too. Of course, if you just

Kiawe Barbecue

want traditional brown barbecue sauce, they offer a great kiawe honey barbecue. “Our bestseller is hot,” says Capuano. “And we pre-cook the wings so you can be in and out in about five minutes. All of our wings are going to be tossed in the sauce of your choice, and all of them are made from scratch here. We try to put our own spin on things, like our coleslaw has just a hint of wasabi, and we make our own baked beans.

We cater, too: we’re doing an order for a wedding of 600 wings.” They also offer boneless, skinless wings, but before you think you’re saving any calories there, remember that they’re marvelously panko-breaded and fried crispy. The same goes with their shrimp–the panko breading is light and crunchy. The pieces are sold by the the number, starting with servings of five. Wings (bone in or out) are $6.49, and shrimp is $6.99. They also do a combo where you can add a drink and a side for an additional $2. It also doesn’t matter if you can put the whole wing in your mouth and then extract just bones, or if you delicately pick the meat off of the bones: saucy wings like these are messy. But don’t let that scare you. Plenty of napkins can combat that. What should concern you though is proper sauce pairing: Buffalo, wasabi, sweet Thai chile, tequila mango habenero, lemon pepper, ranch... French fry aficionados will also be impressed by the Rainbow Fries, a conglomeration of white, red and yam potatoes, all fried crisp. The restaurant has a hearty list of sides, like nice, big onion rings that have been panko-breaded, potato mac salad, coleslaw, celery and carrot sticks with ranch and, straight from the south, panko-crusted, fried pickle slices. At first I thought they were zucchini slices, since they’re very similar in texture, but when you bite in it’s dill pickle crunch all the way. All sides run $1.49 for small, $2.69 for large and “ohana” size is $7.49. Just Wing It may be the opposite of a health food lunch, but they do include some options that keep your food out of the fryer. If you prefer your wings baked, they have those, as well as a few salads and wraps. They also have baked beans, and plain black beans, too. They also offer an artichoke and olive salad made with marinated chokes. What’s more, any of their wraps can be made in spinach or tomato tortillas with or without added tenders or shrimp. But keep in mind they also make their own desserts: handdipped caramel apples were the sweet treat of the day when I went. Capuano says they like to get creative with the desserts, but he also sells the very popular Wow Wee Candy bars for chocolate lovers. ■ jen@mauitime.com + @jenrusso

Even Maui Is Mexican Taco USA explains our nation’s undying love for Mexican food BY ANTHONY PIGNATARO

Taco USA: How Mexican Food Conquered America

by Gustavo Arellano Scribner, New York 289 pages, $24  ere’s an easy way to impress your friends: challenge them to name all the places on Maui that sell Mexican food. Well, let’s see. There are six Maui Tacos locations scattered across the island, at least four Amigo’s spots, three Taco Bells (yes, they count), Polli’s up in Makawao, Taqueria Cruz in Kihei, Las Pinatas in Kahului, that relatively new spot in the Lahaina Cannery Mall near the old Compadres, Fred’s Cantina, Fiesta Time in Wailuku, the Tortilla Burrito Company in Fiesta Time’s old spot in Paia, the Commercial Mexicana store in Lahaina, that store next to Fiesta Time… Of course, you also have to add places that aren’t Mexican-specific, but offer Mexican items. That includes a whole manner of grocery stores and restaurants, which, inevitably, leads to endless discussion and debate over who does what better. Who has the tastiest fish tacos: Cool Cat Café or Leilani’s? Does Kahului Ale House or Moose’s offer the biggest platter of nachos? How does Pacific’O’s kalua pork quesadilla stack up against the one Haliimaile General Store makes with brie and grapes? Shouldn’t the Southwestern Salad at Mc-

H

Donald’s have blue corn chips? Is there a bar on the island (or in the state, for that matter) that doesn’t have at least one bottle of Tequila on the shelf? How Mexican food came to be everywhere is the subject of a new book that hits shelves this week. Called Taco USA: How Mexican Food Conquered America, it’s written by Gustavo Arellano. A former colleague of mine from my days as a reporter for OC Weekly, he’s now the editor of that publication as well as the author of the sarcastic, syndicated Ask a Mexican! column that runs in 37 alternative weeklies across the country. For Arellano, “Mexican food” is a rich conglomeration of influences that span not just both sides of the Rio Grande, but many nations across the planet. In fact, one of his favorite “Mexican��� dishes is the Korean taco­–kalbi rib meat topped with Gustavo Arellano kim chee and ladled into a tortilla (which, now that I think about it, would do gangbusters on Maui should anyone decide to start offering them…). There’s no reactionary zeal for true, “authentic” Mexican fare in these pages. In fact, Arellano says to be wary of restaurants offering “authentic” Mexican cuisine­. What, there’s pineapple in that salsa? Pastrami and tater

tots in that burrito? Taco Bell’s selling a new taco wrapped in a shell made from Doritos? Sweet! “We must consider the infinite varieties of Mexican food in the United States as part of the Mexican family–not a fraud, not a lesser sibling, but an equal,” he writes in the first few pages. “Wherever there is something even minutely Mexican, whether it’s people, food, language, or rituals, even centuries removed from the original mestizo source, it remains Mexican.” In any case, this isn’t a history of Mexican food in Mexico, which is a far more diverse (and spicy) domain of food that us Americans can imagine. Besides, “authentic” cuisine means dumping many of the items and entrees we hold so dear: chips and salsa, burritos rolled up like soda cans, tacos made with ground beef and/or pre-fabricated crispy shells, chili con queso, fajitas. Yes, even fajitas. Born in the Rio Grande valley in Texas, Arellano tells us the original was a poor worker’s dish using skirt steak (faja means “belt” in Spanish). Of course, today fajitas include any kind of grilled meat–which should sizzle so loud that

customers within 15 feet can’t carry on a normal conversation–though vegetarian fajitas are sometimes available. The book is, at its heart, a series of interesting and often surprising anecdotes about the birth and evolution of many foods across the Mexican spectrum. It’s not a grand history of the political, market and gastronomical influences that led to the explosion of Mexican food in the U.S. over the last century and a half. Rather, it’s a survey, with chapters organized around the creation and development of individual items or specialties–chocolate, tacos, “Southwestern cuisine,” Fritos, tequila, etc. Think of it as a Modern Marvels episode, but in convenient book form. It’s an easy read, but if there’s one warning to offer, it’s that it will make you hungry. Which is good, because even out in the Central Pacific, there are plenty of places to satisfy your need for Mexican food.■ anthony@mauitime.com + @apignataro

THURSDAY, APRIL 5 TOP QUIZ - Oh, you think you’re sooo smart, huh? Good! We’re glad you’re giving yourself the credit you deserve. Why not also give yourself a chance to prove your gray matter’s fine mettle by forming or joining a team and taking on the challenge of Dog & Duck’s weekly Quiz Night, hosted by the lovely Laura, aka “Bikini Blond” (friend of the paper and a former co-hostess on The A-Train).

EXOTICA FOR YOUR EARS, EYES N’ EVERYTHING - Oh, the paradisiacal Pacific and its ubiquitous utopia. Hyper-saturated sunsets kiss the sea, green sparks fly and all the rest. Coat its accoutrements in chic patina and you’ve got something timeless, tragic and titillating. And, lore has it, if you have sex on the beach without getting sand in your ass, you’ll cum coconut water. But, wait. Stop. Take a look around you. All that fun, freaky tiki shit ain’t real–at least, not readily so. Surprise! It’s a tourist trap! Palm fronds pulled over a centuries-old colonial hole! Welcome to the cinder block jungle, baby... Nonetheless, when life gives you ice, shave it and soak it in sugar syrup. Such quixotic bygones can indeed be imitated or imagined. However it takes careful crafting: A well-placed leopard skin. The perfect vintage cocktail dress. Exotica on the airwaves. A slimy wink from a lounge lizard... Tonight, get it all thanks to the auricular ambiance of DJs Cudra Clover, Benny Lava and Toben, of BSOS Radio (a live-streaming Internet and LP FM radio station broadcast from the Valley Isle). Plus, it’s the opening of an exhibition by California artist Doug Dorr, who paints pictures of tiki-esque creatures. To help you celebrate, featured drink specials include $3 Heinekens, $4 Sneaky Tikis and $5 Blue Hawaiians. No cover. 9pm-close. South Shore Tiki Lounge (1913 S.

Easter Events

Hippity hop your way to fun, family-friendly activities island-wide.

W 

hether you’re a devout Judeo-Christian practitioner or prefer the Hare Club for Men conspiracy, it’s hard not to love the chance Easter affords to celebrate the comeliness of springtime resurrection with family and friends. Of course, loads of local churches host egg hunts and services (too many to make mention of in this itty bitty space), but our isle’s malls and resorts host some hippity hoppety happenings, too.

AFROLICIOUS Pleasuretime (EP) (ESL Music; 2012) 

AFROLICIOUS’ Pleasuretime sounds like a questionable massage parlor package deal, but it’s really the latest EP by a band helmed by brothers Joe and Oz McGuire (released Mar. 27, with a full album due out later this year). Weaving squeaky clean Afrobeat, drawn-out dub and exotic vocals, Pleasuretime’s a fine follow up to Afrolicious’ 2011 success with their debut LP, Dub For Mali. While their style is perfect for those who want something fresh n’ steady to dance to, it lacks the

Nonetheless, it’s groove-and move-worthy music, mixing the sounds of the West African ngoni (think a sixto 12-stringed ‘ukulele with a dried calabash body–goat skin stretched over it like a drum–and a small wooden shank for its neck), with clap-along beats touched by Caribbean spice (as on the title track and songs like “Bade Malou”). And seeing as this band has the sort of sound that’s likely best enjoyed live, we’re all in luck. Afrolicious gigs this Saturday (Apr. 7; 9:30pm; $15) at Casanova, before continuing their tour in Washington D.C., SoCal and Vancouver.

Big Boat, Bigger Movie Titanic returns in 3D, still sinks at the end Titanic in 3D ★★★★★

BY BARRY WURST II

Rated PG13/732 Min.

I 

was off-island when Titanic fever hit in early 1998 but on the mainland, I felt it as much as you’d feel an iceberg slap into an ocean liner. When you speak of James Cameron’s Titanic, it’s inevitable that you discuss the phenomenon surrounding the film as much as the movie itself, which opened during the Christmas of 1997 movie season, was the number one movie in America until April 1998, spawned a hit soundtrack and Celine Dion single that wouldn’t go away, swept the Academy Awards and became one of the most popular films of all time. There were reports of Leonardo Cry Parties in Japan, where girls would have slumber parties, bring all their Jack Dawson/Leonardo DiCaprio paraphernalia, sit in a circle and, well, cry. I knew a girl who plastered her wall with every DiCaprio movie poster she could get her hands on and I had a male friend who

would see Titanic once a week. Then there was this girl I really liked who wanted to go to the Molly Brown Museum in Denver, which was a quiet, quaint little historical home dedicated to the life of the ship’s most famous survivor. After the movie opened, this once-dead tourist trap became a lines-around-the-block ordeal and do you want to guess what song they had blaring in the gift shop? Fifteen years later, the film is back in theaters, with Cameron’s upgrade of 3D. Personally, I wish he would modify Aliens and The Abyss, his true masterpieces, into 3D and re-release them and not this one but oh well. How does the film hold up? It has the same problems and assets. It still looks like a million bucks (or, $175 million, to be exact), moves briskly for a three hour film and has a third act full of powerful and sometimes genuinely touching imagery. No question, the recreation of the ship and the spectacle of it sinking are still remarkable. Kate Winslet’s hard-working performance is still gripping, even when her dialog sinks faster than the Titanic. Mr. DiCaprio, who has since become one of our most reliably great, intense modern ac-

tors, still looks too young for Winslet and for the lead. In a dinner party scene, his slicked back hair makes him look like a kid going to his first and last prom. The modern day sequences, with Gloria Stewart playing the survivor and Bill Paxton her audience, are interesting but silly and so is the love story in general. In the space of a few hours, we’re supposed to believe Winslet’s Rose would fall for DiCaprio’s Dawson after he teaches her to hock a loogie, Irish step dance, ride the ship’s mast, pose nude and have a quickie in someone’s car. Then there’s Billy Zane’s hilariously awful, mustache-twirling villain, so

dedicated to being nasty, he chases our love struck couple with a gun as the ship sinks. The supporting cast includes Kathy Bates (in too small a role as Molly Brown) and, for some reason, Eric Braeden from The Young and the Restless but no question, Cameron’s the star. The film still looks great, the sadness of the lives lost comes across and the film may still leave one weepy enough to plan their next Leonardo Cry Party. Not me. Titanic works, but man alive, is it overrated! ■  To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/1542f

TITANIC (3D) - PG 13 - Drama - Re-releasing in 3D’s gonna get this cash cow lactating again (though seriously, it’s meant to commemorate the centenary of the RMS Titanic first setting sail on April 10, 1912), but we’re bummed producers didn’t have the balls to resurrect Titanic as a zombie flick.

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.

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... to wonder whether we ourselves might one day venture to the distant planet Mars.” 132 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.

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.

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 Mauian 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.

SUN 10:25, 12:50. MON-WED 12:50.

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.

Resort chefs cook-up a sprawling Pacific fusion buffet, meanwhile cultural advisor Clifford Nae’ole’s own ‘ohana prepares 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 (see our events listing for details), 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.

poke (raw fish salad), and pipi kaula (dried, smoked beef)! >>> 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. >>> CELEBRATION AFTER-HOURS – 9pm-12am (no cover; 21+). Party it up with a performance by the three-man ensemble Waipuna.

KULA KID

Wisdumb BY ANU YAGI

D

o you like to write down those weird little things you realize in strange, quiet moments? I do (and bet you do, too). But personally, I wish I did it more–and well enough–to make a whole list of essential epiphanies. You know, like those characters in TV shows who have their own hard and fast rules to live and die by. [E.g. the ones Tallahassee’s (i.e. Mauiain Woody Harrelson) comrade Columbus devises in Zombieland (#2 double tap!); or the “laws” of Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Ensign Robin Lefler (a reprise guest role by Ashley Judd in episode #106, “The Game”). Or, um... Actually, that’s all I can think of off the top of my head. Stupid? Yeah. But ainokea. And anyway it’s honest because those two examples do well in summing-up the breadth of my moving picture knowledge: dorky squat. Pathetic, I know, but moreover I digress...] A couple columns back (#76: “Lifelong Studentpid”), I started such a list. But I need to update and add a couple Here goes: 1) We really need to keep an eye on those Russians. Note: This old rule was to preface a joke about how I think the “Professional

Russian” on the YouTube gun show “FPS Russia” is an uber hottie. So, I did what all stalkers do and started following him on Twitte–only to soon find out that guy’s a chauvinistic misogynist. #FAIL! That said, rule #1 stands, but for different reasons. 2 & 3) Stet, so skipped... 4) I’m no longer sentimentally attached to this mildewed upholstered armchair. Note: I was gonna strike this, but decided I should instead keep it stet, to be interpreted somewhat metaphorically. I’m sure the Board of Health will appreciate me breaking sentimental attachments to any mildewed thing. Though I’m not quite sure what to do about my face... OK, here are some new ones: 5) I hate the way people look when they’re watching TV. Dead eyes. Hunched backs. It’s like the light show’s sucking out viewers’ souls through their limp, agape mouths. If in some cruel universe you find yourself watching me watch TV, please stop. I’m kind of vain that way. 6) If you love heartbreak, get a dog and wait a few years... Dogs: all they do is bring love to our lives. Why can’t they live forever? Solution: zombie dogs. Or vampire dogs, depending on the political season. Um, yikes. I guess that’s all the essential epiphanies I’ve got right now. Boy howdy, have I got some wisdom to l/earn! (If you’ve got any and are willing to share, I could sure use ‘em.)



On a related topic, I guess the next best thing worth mentioning in this column (where space and time are short) are some not-so serious questions I wish I had answers to: 1) Look, I totally get the bumper sticker, “New York - Paris - Tokyo - London - Hana.” Cute. But what’s “Mars - Venus - Makawao” all about? If men and women are from those planets respectively, is Makawao for mahus? Huh. No wonder that town’s got such great style... 2) And on the topic of bumper stickers, how in good conscience can you have a “Pono... Do The Right Thing!” sticker next to an “Ainokea” sticker? The chasm between irony and hypocrisy is narrow but deep, my friends. 3) Why do “caregiver” and “caretaker” mean the same thing? Also: why is it “oysters on the half shell” and not “oysters in a half shell”? I asked Boss Pignataro and he said it’s simply “one of life’s great mysteries.” 4) “TKTKTK” is journo code for “to come.” So why isn’t it “TCTCTC”? Ring, ring! Hear that, folks? That’s the sound of me phoning it in. Clearly it’s also the sound of me needing to find more strange, quiet moments. TKTKTK or TCTCTC or whatever. ■  To share or save: mt.hy.pr/1542k anu@mauitime.com

HOROSCOPE

Sign Language BY CAERIEL CRESTIN ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19)

The effects of aging are inevitable. It’s harder to stay in shape, we get wrinkles, and our bodies don’t work as efficiently as they used to. It’s better to have a sense of humor about it than to get bitter, though. The key to becoming older gracefully is calmly accepting the changes that come with (although we don’t need to simply succumb to them). There are lots of other things that life throws at us that we can’t do much about; handling them in a similar way to the gray hairs and sagging flesh (with a smile and joke) will serve you well this week.  TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20)

When different aspects of your life aren’t perfectly compatible— your faith and your job, for example, or your friends and your lover—it sets you up for some internal conflicts of your own. To which, after all, do you ultimately owe your loyalty, should you be forced to choose? How do you share time between these irreconcilable chapters of your day-to-day? This is a question that’s likely to come up more than once this week, and unfortunately there’s no satisfactory easy answer. You’ll just have to sort it out, case by case, and hope that everyone can live with what you decide. 

relevant here, so don’t bother sharing it. As long as they’re not hurting anyone (or, especially, you), whether it jives with the kinds of decisions you’d make for yourself is completely beside the point. Chiming in about it anyway will only alienate people and diminish your own credibility. You don’t have to get on board with whatever it is you’re not happy about—but you do have to at least pretend you’re on board, for now. Can you do that? You may never come around, but if you force yourself to be open-minded about this, it may not prove as terrible as you once believed.

QUIZunderstood ANSWERS

...to questions from page 4



1: B–Fire him. 

2: A–U.S. Senator Daniel Inouye 

3: D–“A few hundred people.” 

 SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21)

People make unrealistic decisions all the time. As much as you may try to deliver a sorely-needed reality check, it’s probably not something they can hear. You need to simply hold your tongue and wait for reality to go ahead and bite them in the ass. You tried to spare them the painful version of this lesson, but they weren’t ready for it. Instead of saying, “I told you so,” and kicking them while they’re down, be kind and just help them back to their feet, brush them off, and together figure out their next best step. 

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20)

Everyone has chapters in the past that they’re not proud of, or simply feel conflicted about. When and how to share those chapters with someone very close to you is a valid question. Whether or not to share them at all, however, is not. While some things in your past are no one’s business but your own, these particular important bits of your history helped inform who you are today, and wouldn’t be right to keep secret forever. Plan on sharing them, and how to best make such delicate revelations. But don’t, for a minute, think of keeping them a secret. That would just fester and screw things up.  CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22)

Just because someone goes ahead and gives you a piece of their mind doesn’t mean you have to take it. Your life is full of people who feel empowered to share their two cents about stuff that’s truthfully none of their business, and most of the time you’re too kind or sensitive to completely ignore it (as you probably should). Enough’s enough, though. You’ve been pretty tolerant so far, but it’s time you let them know that their opinions—on this subject at least—aren’t interesting or helpful, and they should probably, finally, shut up about them.  LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22)

When in crisis, people are often moved to do pretty out-there stuff. While this is mostly forgivable (depending on their specific actions), that doesn’t mean you need to participate in those emotion-fueled shenanigans. Your job is actually to be a benevolent, forgiving presence who can help guide them back to some semblance of normal or regular life. As wild as you can sometimes be, you’ve always had a pretty steady internal lodestar helping you to get back on track when you’ve wandered off. Others aren’t always so lucky—so, hook them up and help steer them back on course.  VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22)

Having and maintaining your own space is one thing, and mostly a healthy habit to have. However, when your independence is so pronounced that you have astoundingly little overlap with the people you’re supposed to be close to, that’s a problem. This week, be open to sharing more of your life with your besties. They deserve it. That doesn’t mean you can’t ever reserve time and space that’s for you and you alone, but you can certainly live happily with a little less than you have now—I’m betting, even, that you’ll prove to be happier with less space than you ever thought possible.  LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22)

Your approval or disapproval about someone else’s choices isn’t

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21)

When a dog moves into a new place, he might pee on all the boundaries of the yard to indicate, “This is mine, now.” Humans, however, are more subtle and complicated. The space you long to claim isn’t something you have exclusive rights to. Since you have to share it, pissing in the corners will probably not be appreciated, no matter how you actually do it. You need to wrap your head around sharing space, time, and people with those you’d never choose, and in ways you’re not used to. Your resistance is understandable—but not conducive to your own happiness. Abandon it, if you can.  CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19)

Of course people deserve second (and sometimes third, fourth, or fifth) chances. That doesn’t mean they immediately (or ever) get carte blanche and an all-access pass back into your life just because they say they’ve turned over a new leaf after screwing up. Trust must be rebuilt. It’s admirable of you to be open to this new chapter for the two of you, but taking it slow is necessary. Err on the side of caution (but eschew suspicion, when possible), and keep taking baby steps, and you will have done everything you can to help get things back on track. The rest is up to the other person.

Attending Attending to to all all your your landscape landscape needs needs

 AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18)

As open-minded as you are, you’re one of the fixed signs (along with Leo, Scorpio, and Taurus), and consequently it’s very difficult for others to change you. You can consider every idea under the sun, but when it comes time to actually change an ingrained habit (of thought or action), it’s unlikely anyone else will have much success in doing so. By this point in your life, you should have pretty good intuition regarding when someone is intent on reshaping you in some way; letting them know just how unlikely (and perhaps impossible) that is may be difficult, and even a deal-breaker—but it’s also your honorable duty.  PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20)

Sketchy people are quite adept at finding ways to intrude on others’ boundaries without getting called out. Especially once they’ve gotten away with it once, future incursions are inevitable and harder to counter, especially for you kindhearted Pisceans, who loathe confrontation. However, that doesn’t mean you have to suck it up and put up with this kind of treatment forever, just because you weren’t able to stop it the very first time it happened. This week, step up and defend your turf. If they’re surprised that this area’s now off-limits, all the better; maybe the lesson will have more punch.
