On June 28, Governor Neil Abercrombie flew to Maui to sign a few bills that relate to the county, including HB 1424, which allows the state to spend $20 million to buy Lipoa Point from the Maui Land & Pineapple Company, and SB 298, which appropriates $600,000 for a special Ma‘alaea-based emergency vehicle. Where on the island did Abercrombie sign the bills? A. The State Office Building in Wailuku. B. The Sheraton Resort in Ka‘anapali. C. The King Kamehameha Golf Club in Waikapu. D. The Grand Wailea Resort. E. Zippy’s in Kahului.

2. After the recent U.S. Supreme Court declared the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) to be unconstitutional, on June 28 the Hawaii Republican Assembly sent out a press release outlining a variety of talking points concerning the decision. Which of the following was NOT one of them? A. “If same-sex marriage were legalized, all employers, public and private, large or small, would be required to offer spousal benefits to homosexual couples.” B. “Churches and non-profit organizations could be stripped of their tax exemptions and

religious psychologists, social workers, and marriage counselors could be denied licensing if they ‘discriminate’ against homosexuals.” C. “Giving the option of same-sex ‘marriage’ would tell society that marriage in general is ‘optional,’ not normative, and fewer people would marry.” D. “As the transience of homosexual relationships is incorporated in society’s image of ‘marriage,’ we can expect that fewer heterosexuals would maintain a lifelong commitment.” E. “DOMA UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!!! America, [EXPLETIVE DELETED] yeah, baby!!!!”

3. July 1 was the first day in five years that reporters in Hawaii weren’t protected by some sort of shield law. Which of the following bills from the 2013 session also become a new state law on July 1? A. Solar tax credits will start stepping down. B. The minimum wage will rise slightly. C. Adult drivers can’t use mobile devices (except those that are hands-free) while driving. D. Work will begin on a state preschool program. E. Hawaii will now have same-day voter registration.

Former Chairman Tom Cannon

TOM CANNON STAYS CLASSY AS HE RESIGNS FROM WMSA It’s hard to remember now, but there was a time when the non-profit Wailuku Main Street Association (WMSA) was a respected, helpful voice in the development of Maui’s small towns. But these days, with the state Attorney General’s investigation of the organization (which began after WMSA officials refused to give a clear accounting to the County of Maui of how they were spending the nearly quarter of a million dollars in county tax dollars they received every year), eye-opening court testimony from former WMSA Exec Director Jocelyn Perreira and lawsuits from both the county and their former Wailuku landlord, the only question most people around here have now is why the thing still exists. Well, those days are over. According to new documents filed on June 25 in Maui’s Second Circuit Court, all remaining WMSA directors–including combative Chairman Tom Cannon–have resigned. The documents say there’s nothing left of the organization except an accounting of the $13,000 or so in remaining assets that belong to the county– the exact location of which Cannon refused to disclose, even when placed under oath by Deputy Attorney General Hugh Jones. Buried in the 32 pages of documents filed by Jones is Cannon’s official letter informing Jones of his resignation, which he apparently sent on June 17. For fun, I’m reprinting the letter below, word for beautiful word. You’d think that someone in Cannon’s position, who now finds himself overseeing the complete destruction of the decades-old WMSA, would take stock of the disaster with at least some humility. But not Cannon. In fact, it’s almost comforting to see that even now, he still

denies (with great vehemence and anger) any and all wrongdoing and insists he’s the victim of a vast political conspiracy: “Dear Mr. Jones, “As I informed you by prior email, I, along with the rest of the WMSA Board, have resigned. This is what you wanted and now you have it. What happens now that you have crushed a 28-year worthy non-profit and proven cost-effective advocate for local concerns, for no valid reason (please reference my prior +/- 100 pages of communication regarding WMSA on behalf of the Board)? You were on a politically-motivated mission to kill WMSA, and you achieved your mission, with no valid cause.You are a legal pit bull, who eats any non-profit that gets out of line with the political powers that be, by draining their coffers and by fierce legal intimidation until they finally evaporate. Good job, but one without any trace of moral redemption. Although I have resigned from the Board, please consider me an interested party in your further actions on this matter. It will be interesting to see how you attempt to rationalized [sic] this travesty of justice, and deal with the two outstanding baseless lawsuits against WMSA. “Sincerely, Thomas R. Cannon, former volunteer.”

Council to launch a formal investigation. The statement was brief, mostly because Rod Antone, the mayor’s spokesman, said that Arakawa had to be in Wailea at 9am to meet Governor Neil Abercrombie, who was there to sign a few Maui-related bills. There were no questions from the assembled reporters. “As the mayor I take full responsibility for this situation,” Arakawa said. “We were so intent on meeting with councilmembers personally and getting their individual approval that we forgot some of the more formal aspects of the process. But rest assured that we are taking steps to make sure not to repeat this mistake.” For about two years, Arakawa and his aides briefed the Maui County Council, both informally and in public hearings, about their plans to demolish the old Wailuku Post Office and build a new, larger office building on the site as part of a new civic center campus (see our June 27 cover story “Is The Maui County Council Nuts?” which details the public records concerning these discussions). Then in early February, as the building was coming down, Councilmember Mike White suddenly decided that the administration had never told the council how they’d pay for the demolition. Even though the council just appointed a new County Auditor, a majority of the panel is con-

MAYOR APOLOGIZES FOR OLD WAILUKU POST OFFICE MESS This morning, Maui Mayor Alan Arakawa walked up to a lectern in his office’s ninth room conference room–where two County Councilmembers Bob Carroll and Don Couch, numerous staffers and a few members of the media were gathered–and apologized for the “miscommunication” concerning the demolition of the old Wailuku Post Office that may lead the County

future communication between the administration and the council must be documented,” Arakawa said. “Although we look forward to our one-on-one discussions with councilmembers, we realize that we cannot rely solely upon informal meetings. The record leading up to each decision must be clear and concise in order to minimize misunderstandings.” The presence of just Carroll and Couch wasn’t surprising, as they represent two of the three members (along with Gladys Baisa) who have so far publicly opposed an investigation into the matter. The council will vote on authorizing a full investigation into the demolition at their July 5 hearing.

UNFUNDED LIABILITIES LIVE! And now a quick word about a subject I know is near and dear to all your hearts: unfunded liabilities. The Hawaii Employees’ Retirement System pension fund had a $10.9 billion net liability in the fiscal year that ended in 2011, according to a story in the July 1 Honolulu Star-Advertiser. That figure represented 132.5 percent of the state’s budget that year, meaning the government took in far less revenue than it

sidering running the investigation themselves. Though Arakawa said he accepted responsibility for the matter, I couldn’t help but notice the subtle way in which he used the press conference to cast doubt on the trustworthiness of various councilmembers. “I have already instructed my staff that all

needed to even begin paying off the pension benefits it owes to retired state workers. Such debt means a bad credit rating for the state (which is worse off than 45 other states), and that means taxpayers have to contend with higher interest rates when paying off state bonds. It also means that in the coming years the state will likely have to cut spending on social services that assist the poorest people in society. “Earlier this year an actuarial report of Hawaii’s system said the pension fund was in its worst shape since at least 1980 with an $8.4 billion shortfall,” the story helpfully noted. But have no fear–a fix is right around the corner: “Accumulating enough money in the system to pay all benefits due qualified recipients would take 30 years, the report said.” Well, in geologic time, that is. ■ anthony@mauitime.com + @apignataro For more news articles, visit our news blog at: mauifeed.com

ACLU SUES COUNTY OVER SIGN PROHIBITION

PHOTO COURTESY IMUA FAMILY SERVICES

On Jan. 21, a group of Maui community members gathered in Wailuku for a Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade. The marchers came together to honor the civil rights leader and display the solidarity of peoples of diverse backgrounds regarding fundamental issues of peace, justice and equality. The simple march from High Street to Wailuku Coffee Company on Market Street involved sign holding, airing citizen concerns and reflecting the civil rights protests of the ‘60s. It turned out, fittingly, that Maui’s Martin Luther King Jr. parade was also an act of civil disobedience. Word began spreading in early January through the African Americans on Maui Association with a warning: “We need to alert all Parade Participants per the Maui Police Department: It is a County Ordinance that no one is allowed to carry signs, but may carry photos of Dr. King or banners of their organizations. Please be advised that the Maui Police Department will issue tickets should anyone carry signage.” The MPD’s threats turned out to be hollow that January day, as the police officers looked on while the demonstrators held their signs and marched the road to Market Street, but the conflict hasn’t stopped there. On June 20, the American Civil Liberties Union of Hawaii filed a lawsuit on behalf of Chuck Carletta and Mele Stokesberry of the group Maui Peace Action over the “unlawful ordinance.” “The law at issue is so broad that it effectively prohibits campaign sign-waving, protests, picketing, parades, or other demonstrations across large portions of three islands,” said ACLU of Hawaii Senior Staff Attorney Daniel Gluck in a June 20 press release. “It is illegal for County officials to enforce these rules against some protesters but not against others, and it is illegal for the County to allow police officers to break

the rules for messages the County supports.” Part of the ACLU Hawaii’s argument asserts that the “these regulations are not narrowly tailored, and therefore burden substantially more speech than is necessary to achieve any purported goal(s) the County may have.” The other part of the group’s argument is that the regulations are unfairly enforced, “such that Defendant COUNTY is engaged in content based discrimination and viewpoint based discrimination.” ACLU Hawaii asserts that the ordinances are enforced–or threatened to be enforced–against some protesters but not others, while the County routinely permits Maui Police Department demonstrations for County sponsored messages, such as drunk driving prevention. Carletta, a plaintiff and activist of Maui Peace Action noted the absurdity of limiting free speech on a day devoted to the honored civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., stating, “More than any other holiday, Martin Luther King day is a meaningful time to exercise our rights to free speech. It is also a day to celebrate Dr. King and the civil rights and peace movements that he sacrificed his life for. We were stunned when we found out that the Maui County Police department was threatening to issue tickets to anyone in this year’s march carrying a sign with any written messages!” The other plaintiff, Stokesberry, seemed hopeful. “We carried our signs in the march in January, as did many others, in spite of the threats and we are delighted that the ACLU of Hawaii is willing to stand up for us and to seek to overturn this egregious ordinance,” she said. Before bringing the lawsuit to U.S. District Court, ACLU Hawaii contacted Maui County in an effort to amend the ordinance. The County refused. “The ACLU has still not served the county with the lawsuit yet,” said Rod Antone, the

For special needs children, life can be full of obstacles and challenges—but it can also be full of caring individuals dedicated to help meet those challenges. Indeed, the power of community is invaluable in its contributions to the lives of special needs children, and organizations such as Imua Family Services recognize this. The group recently wrapped up its 37th annual Camp Imua, a week long summer camp that ran from June 8-14 this year and brought together volunteers and companies from across the island to create a rich and positive environment for 57 special needs keiki campers. “When you’re a ‘special needs child’ school is a lonely and difficult place to be,” said one mother of a Camp Imua keiki. “At school she is ‘different, scary and ostracized’ for who she is and because she is not like other children there. BUT at Camp Imua she is a star, she is popular, she is loved and cared for. The other kids don’t see their differences or their special needs. She gets to do and experience things that ‘normal kids’ get to do on a regular basis and everything there is centered on her own special abilities… Often it’s the only time of the year where she gets to feel this way on a day to day basis. She is always sad when Camp Imua is over and looks forward to the next camp all year round.” What’s more, the activities offered at Camp Imua due to the generosity of Maui’s community are enough to make anyone look back at their childhood summer camp with a little disdain. This year the camp was able to offer “helicopter rides, zip lines at Pi‘iholo, daily horseback rid-

ing, swimming, surf therapy at Olowalu with cardboard boat races, kayaking, arts & crafts and of course campfire sing along,” stated a June 24 news release. Yet, all good things must come to an end. “The entire week closed with a special Luau when parents and caregivers joined together for one final feast,” stated Imua Family Services. “It was an emotional night of incredible joy, exhaustion and ‘a hui hou’ until we meet again. This year staff of Old Lahaina Luau came to give the kids Makahiki experience teaching, poi ponding, Hawaiian games, and tapa making. And of course each year our honorable Mayor Alan Arakawa cooks Shoyu Chicken for the campers.” Arakawa’s cooking feats included, Camp Imua was the product of significant volunteer and organizational contributions. Each special needs child was teamed up with two or three Camper Caregivers who were selected and trained to provide “round the clock care, support, and attention to each camper.” In addition to volunteer caregivers, volunteer nurses, lifeguards, cooks, crafters and cleaning crews donated their time for a total of over 200 volunteers who helped make the week special for the keiki. Imua Family Services provides comprehensive early childhood development services to children and their families with the support and resources needed to achieve their full potential in life. Each year, more than 2,500 community members on Maui and Lanai receive support from Imua Family Services through the Infant & Child Development Program, Early Childhood Development Program, Newborn Hearing Screening, and Camp Imua.

News Of The Weird SIEGING CHEATERS As many as 50 exam monitors were forced to take cover at a high school in Zhongxiang, China, in June, fending off outraged students (and some parents) who hurled insults and stones at them after the monitors blocked cheating schemes on the all-important national “gaokao” exams. (It was “siege warfare,” and eventually “hundreds” of police responded, according to a dispatch in the Daily Telegraph of London.) Metal detectors had found secret transmitters and contraband cellphones used by groups beaming in exam answers from outside. Independent proctors had been assigned because of longstanding suspicions that the schools’ own proctors routinely enabled cheating (with results such as the 99 identical papers submitted in one subject on the previous year’s exam). Said one student (in the mob of about 2,000), noting how widespread cheating is nationally, “There is no fairness if you do not let us cheat.”

THINGS PEOPLE BELIEVE Sheriffs and government deed-recorders in several states have reported annoying attempts recently by “Moorish American nationals” to confiscate temporarily vacant houses (often mansions), moving in without inhibition, changing the locks and partying joyously–based on made-up documents full of gobbledygook and stilted legalese granting them sovereignty beyond the reach of law-enforcement. There is a venerable Moorish Temple Science of America, but these trespassers in Florida, Maryland, Tennessee and other states are from fanciful offshoots that demand reparations (usually in gold) for ChristopherColumbus-era Europeans having stolen “their” land. A North Carolina police investigator told the Washington Post in March that “every state” is experiencing the “Moorish American” invasion.

CLICHE COME TO LIFE Sheriff’s deputies arrested Shane Kersey, 35, in March as the one who made phone calls to four schools in New Orleans’s Westbank neighborhood, threatening to burn them down. When taken into custody, Kersey had aluminum foil wrapped around his skull and secured by a baseball cap but explained to an officer that he needed it “to prevent microwave signals from entering his head.”

OOPS! Tim Blackburn, 50, fell off a ladder in Stockton-on-Tees, England, in 2007, and shattered his arm so badly that doctors had to remove four inches of bone and attach a metal scaffold around his arm that took six years to heal completely (and then only because of help from a cutting-edge ultrasound

procedure). In May 2013–one day after he got a clean bill of health–Blackburn tripped over his dog and tumbled down the stairs in his home, and his arm “snapped like a twig,” he said.

BRIGHT IDEAS Technology companies are making great strides in odor-detection robots, valuable in identifying subtle scents ranging from contaminants in beer brewing to cancerous tumors in the body. And then there is CrazyLabo in Fukuoka, Japan, which is marketing two personal-hygiene robots, available for special occasions such as parties, according to a May BBC News report. One detector, shaped as a woman’s kissable head, tests breath odor and responds (e.g., “smells like citrus”; “there’s an emergency taking place”). The other, resembling a dog, checks a person’s feet and can either cuddle up to the subject (no odor) or appear to pass out.

DOG WATCHDOGS The local council in Brunete, Spain, near Madrid, has now seen a radical drop in unscooped dog droppings after employing volunteers to find the names of derelict dogs. They then matched the dog with the town’s dog registrations to obtain the owners’ addresses, then mailed them packages containing their dogs’ business (terming it “lost property”).

CREME DE LA WEIRD Yasuomi Hirai, 26, was arrested in Hyogo Prefecture, Japan, in June after being identified in news reports as the man who had crawled “dozens of meters” in an underground gutter solely to gain access to a particular sidewalk grate near Konan Women’s University in order to look up at skirt-wearers passing over the grate. After one pedestrian, noting the pair of eyes below, summoned a police officer, Hirai scurried down the gutter and escaped, but since he had been detained several months earlier on a similar complaint, police soon seized him, and indeed, he later admitted, “I have done this numerous times.”

UNDIGNIFIED DEATHS The man who claimed the “world’s record” for traveling the farthest distance on a zip line attached only to his hair was killed in April as he similarly attempted to cross the Teesta River in West Bengal, India, on a zip line. He died of a heart attack, and since observers were unclear whether his limpness was part of the performance, he hung lifeless for 45 minutes. (He was identified in news reports as a “Guinness Book” record-holder, but as with many such claims, the Guinness Book has no such category.) ■ chuck@mauitime.com

IN KAHAKULOA A TRUE STORY FROM ONE OF MAUI’S MOST REMOTE VILLAGES BY RICK CARROLL

PHOTO BY FOREST & KIM STARR - WIKIMEDIA COMMONS

S

ometimes you don’t see the signs even when they are in your face. Sometimes you don’t know enough to know a sign when you see it. Sometimes, it all begins to make sense. Not that day in Kahakuloa. Spinner dolphins on Maui’s Nakalele Bay. A grinning pit bull at the valley’s padlocked gate. The rustling pareu in the window on a calm day. The wet rock in the stream that sent me flying. How could I have overlooked all that? Now, years later, I can close my eyes and see the signs for what I think they were: A force in opposi-

tion, a wandering spirit, night marchers, the soul of the place. Whatever. Something objected to my presence in the valley that day and there were signs I failed to heed. I began to realize this only last September down in the South Pacific, on Huahine, an island with mana strong enough to lean on. It happened after the Tahitians found three teeth of their ancestors at the Maeva dig, the day Sinoto fell off the marae, the day Michael folded a ti leaf around a rock and we, all three of us, elected without a word not to ascend the Sacred Mountain of Mata‘ire‘a where the giant banyan tree once draped with human skulls of the sacrificed now

keeps the marae in deep shadow. That’s when I finally came to understand that the supernatural world so easily embraced by Polynesians affects us in different ways. They do not concern themselves with solving riddles. They accept the insoluble. We want supernatural things to make sense. They are content not to understand. For a long time everything that happened that day in that valley on Maui bothered me because I didn’t know that. I do now. Kahakuloa Valley lies on the far north side of Maui where the pavement ends.You may go there but only by invitation and with a guide. The road to the valley is named for Ka-

hekili The Feather-Caped Thunderer, the King of Maui. Tattooed Marquesan-style over half his body, Kahekili took flying leaps off Pu‘u Keka to prove his courage. He built houses out of the skulls of his enemies. Narrow, winding and rough, the old King’s road skirts around sheer sea cliffs without safety rails. On the way to the valley, you pass Kahakuloa, a village so picturesque Gauguin might have painted it: sun-faded houses with red tin roofs on a black sand cove laced with white fishing nets under a green grove of coco palms. I recall a green clapboard church with

New England steeple. Little roadside stands selling fresh, young coconuts and shave ice. You want to stay there forever. At the gateway to Kahakuloa the chain link fence is doubly padlocked and the entry is blocked by jacked-up pickups of locals with zigzag Polynesian tattoos on bulgy biceps. Hawaiian warrior helmets dangle from rear view mirrors and pit bulls sit in the back. A stranger does not feel welcome here. I always wondered why the valley was kapu and yearned to go there if only to learn the secret of the place. I knew that I must wait for an invitation. In Hawaii, nobody goes poking around interior valleys without an invitation and never alone. One day the invitation arrived and from the most unlikely source-John Toner, a blueeyed, blonde haole, then general manager of The Ritz-Carlton Kapulua, and a most unusual host and legendary hotelier. “Would you like to visit Kahakuloa Valley this weekend?”Toner asked. Of course, I replied. An ambassador of cultural exchange, Toner invites Hawaiians to meet guests and sends them on authentic encounters. He’d struck a bargain with residents of the valley so his guests could experience a Hawaii nearly lost in Maui’s rush to progress. A day in Kahakuloa Valley could be experienced–a Ritz Carlton activity–like snorkeling in Honolua Bay. “The valley is magic,“ Toner said. “You’ll be delighted.” Just after sunrise next morning the only two people on the wild coast in a rental car, riding along, savoring the nature and solitude out of the blue Marcie said: “I’ve never seen spinner dolphins,” as we came upon Naalehu Bay where as if on cue the bay exploded with spinner dolphins, a hundred or more, leaping and spinning in tight circles, clockwise and counter clockwise, tumbling and somersaulting in the air, a splashy water ballet gone berserk. We stood on the cliff watching the dolphins so long we almost missed our appointment at the valley gate. The usual cluster of pickup trucks blocked the entry. In the bed of one, I notice a black pit bull dog who seemed to be smiling, grinning, actually, big and wide and friendly–the Cheshire cat of pit bulls–I thought and reached for my camera just as two hounds

ran up to meet us followed by a slim, handsome Hawaiian fellow holding a ring of keys–Oliver Oliver, our valley guide. “Call me Oliver,” he said, smiling. A modern Hawaiian who chooses to live an 18th century lifestyle, Oliver dives for fish, tends his taro path and clings to old Hawaiian values that include “respect for my health, my family, the ocean, the mountains and this valley.” Oliver inflicts such arcane values on local delinquents with great success. An ex-law enforcement officer, he takes custody of dead-end kids, puts them to work in the valley planting taro, repairing rope bridges, clearing the jungle and restacking old rocks. I realized then that the trucks at the gate belonged to his young charges. They leave the valley with a new attitude, he said. And visitors come away with a new understanding of a Hawaii now almost lost. “Cross the stream here,” he said pointing to smooth boulders in the fast rushing stream. “We’re working on the bridge.” I stepped out upon the biggest rock in the stream, slipped and went flying into the air. In the fall, I saved my camera from a dunking but sprained my left thumb and emerged sopping wet, bleeding and sore, feeling not just clumsy but as though something had pushed me. Once I regained my composure and daubed peroxide on my scrapes, Oliver pointed to his taro patch, told me to kick off my shoes and step into the silky soft mud. Immediately, I felt a warm sensation spread through my whole body. What’s in the mud? I asked, but Oliver laughed and said it was “the soul of old Hawaii.” While I stood in soothing mud Oliver explained how he diverts Kahakuloa stream into loi, or taro patches, which he called the cornerstone of Hawaii’s early agriculture. “Without taro we Hawaiians would wither away. Taro is our staple.” We sipped ice tea outside his tidy handcrafted house beside the babbling stream in a tropical oasis of banana, papaya, mango, plum and coconut trees. Then we set out hiking into the valley carved over eons by the stream that originated as a waterfall on mile-high Pu‘u Kukui, the second-wettest spot on Earth, whose cloud-wreathed summit early Hawaiians believed was the intersection be-

tween heaven and earth. It all began to sound like a paradise but I knew better, that life here long ago was harsh and brutal and savage. Skulls were crushed because of an errant glance. The valley, Oliver said, is full of ancient, mysterious sites: heiau, shrines, platform and night marchers-spirits of ali‘i who stroll through the valley with alacrity revisiting lifetime haunts. As we pushed by chest-high ferns on the banks of the stream we came upon an abandoned house. “What happened here?” I asked. “Night marchers,” he said, as if he’d seen them himself last night. Against all advice the former occupant– “that old coconut head”–built his house on the night marchers’ trail. He lost his job, his wife, his family, everything, Oliver said, because he built his house in the wrong place. I didn’t know whether to believe him and looked to see if was joking–he wasn’t. As we walked by the empty house I saw a pareu rustling in an open window of the empty house like they do when trade winds call but there had not been a breath of air in the valley all day and there was no breeze now. We hiked on deeper in the dead-end valley toward the waterfall pool but dense jungle that had never known a machete prevented us. We followed a footpath on the east side of the valley now in full shade and soon came upon hard evidence of early inhabitants: terraces and heiau, and strange Cshaped rock shelters all built, Oliver said, more than 1,500 years ago. The shadowy prehistoric site was deadly quiet and I shivered in the day’s heat and was glad to go. Sitting in full sunlight outside Oliver’s house by the babbling stream, I enjoyed a great sense of calm and wished everyone could experience Hawaii like this. It was hard to leave this old Hawaiian place. I understood the dilemma of the departed and why they return. When my Kodachrome slides came back, only one image came out: the house in the path of the night marchers. The images of Oliver and his house, the taro pound and stream, the essence of the valley–all blank and I was puzzled. I called Oliver at the number in Lahaina he gave me but he was not there. I told the wom-

an who answered about the pictures, how only one came out and she said she would tell Oliver but he probably already knew. For a moment I wondered if our day in Kahakuloa was only a dream but no, Marcie was there and she remembers the events of the day even as I do. The valley is full of enigmas I would never understand. Last September I joined the famed archaeologist Yosihiko Sinoto on another dig on the prehistoric Huahine village of Maeva. Diggers unearthed three human teeth that day. “Tupu pau” the Tahitians said–their word for phantom or ghost. Everyone laughed. That afternoon, Sinoto, his assistant Michael and I went up the Sacred Mountain of Mata‘ire‘a to measure the stone walls of a marae. I heard a crashing sound and turned to see Sinoto tumble head over heels into sticker weeds. “I’m okay,” he said, brushing himself off. Michael wrapped a stone in a ti leaf and we all went back down the mountain. We never said a word about our sudden departure; it just seemed like a good idea not to press on. I began to suspect that powers beyond our control may and often do appear when you encounter the soul of a place. In Kahakuloa I couldn’t read the mixed signals so quickly. The clues, if they were clues, were ambiguous, conflicting, unclear– the spinner dolphins, the slippery rock, the grinning pit bull, the soothing mud, the rustling pareau, the sudden chill at the strange C-shaped structure, my sense of well-being in the sun, the missing photographs. Signs of approach and avoidance, I felt welcome/uneasy. I wanted to stay/flee. Maybe it was my imagination, a coincidence, a prank of nature. I didn’t understand what was going on that day and I don’t now. What I know is this: I am content not to understand.

Seafood Won Tons, Spicy Ahi and Angry Sauce The Wonders Of Amasia’s New 3-Course Tasting Menu

Amasia 3850 Wailea Alanui Dr. 808-891-3954 Wailearesortdining.com

I

’m like a kid in the Asian fusion candy store when I walk into Amasia. Chef and owner Alan Wong has taken all the delectable specialties–sushi, dim sum, the neighbor’s hibachi, the corner store, baby luau, Chinatown–and tossed it together in his own fusion flavor. The restaurant recently celebrated its first year on Maui at the Grand Wailea, and cre-

pass that–there’s no shame in that here. The menu is shaped by the four styles of cooking: raw bar, sushi bar, robata grill and the main kitchen. You’ll also notice a few of the dishes “borrowed” from the favorites list from Wong’s Oahu restaurant (those are marked with a special icon). When at Amasia, I have an incredible time deciding what to try.The menu was originally organized by preparation, but now it’s by proteins. With so many dishes, it’s easy to lose focus, and the tasting menu helps you avoid this. But three courses isn’t much to eat, right? In actuality, the entree course is served as a quartet of dishes. There’s also a “supplement” section where you can

Chef and Owner Alan Wong From there your quartet is served, and it covers all of the kitchen favorites. The ahi meatball in Angry Sauce is one of the first things I fell in love with at Amasia. It’s tuna, formed into meatballs and covered with a spicy Italian inspired tomato sauce that they call “Angry Sauce,” and then topped with a kiss of Parmesan and fresh basil. The recipe appears in Wong’s Blue Tomato cookbook. If you perused Yelp, then you saw the buzz on Amasia’s soy-braised short ribs. They are a boneless tender chunk of beef that’s perfectly slow cooked with a sweet soy flavor. The ko choo jang adds some

the veloute that really makes this entree shine. The quartet is followed by the dessert course. Your choices fall between the Waialua chocolate pudding and the lilikoi malasadas. The malasadas are served in a cute Chinese box stuffed with their sugar dusted goodness, and the tang of creamy lillikoi in the middle make them irresistible. I haven’t been able to stray from the the malasadas, but Waialua chocolate (from Oahu’s North Shore) is some of the most incredible chocolate made in our state. If the three courses leave you hanging, you can just embellish from the menu or do

Ahi Meatballs

ated a special three-course tasting menu that starts at just $49 per person. They’ve had a longer standing five-course menu tasting that gives you a tour of the restaurant’s different cuisine styles, but the three-course tasting holds up well in comparison. First thing to note is that Amasia is a tapas/small plate place. You will want to order several small dishes here. One recent recommendation from a friend was that nine plates were sufficient for two people. But don’t be ashamed if you want to sur-

add sushi and sashimi. Want to pair it? No problem: let them know if it’s just wine or wine and sake–both are options. Starting with the first course, you have two choices: sushi bar or salad. The spicy ahi roll has a surprise twist with crispy potatoes and green onion, or you can go with the Asian pear salad, a wonderfully refreshing mix of thinly sliced but still crisp fruit and similarly sliced radish, greens, gorgonzola, orange, and candied garlic pecans. The chardonnay reduction dressing is heavenly.

Seafood won ton

depth and kick. I like the toothpick served in it, and no utensils are needed. Next up, the duck bun is dim sum finessed into fine dining. You could describe it as a fancy baked manapua, but that doesn’t do it justice. The delicate bun has a high gloss finish, the bread is light and slightly crisp on the exterior and the duck filling is sweet and savory. You eat it and all you can think of is having more. The final taste in the quartet is the seafood won ton, which is served in a black bean lemon grass chili veloute. The won tons are not fried, the dough is tender, the seafood has perfect minced seasoning throughout, but it’s

the five-course tasting. Some of the must-try dishes in the five-course tasting include the chopped ahi sashimi, presented as a stack with avocado and crispy won ton chips, and the beef tenderloin skewer (you also have the choice of any dessert). If you can, try the shave ice pineapple–it’s an elevated version of our island’s favorite frozen sweet treat. Amasia also has a happy hour featuring their cocktails and select dishes 5-6:30 pm, and offers a 20 percent off kama’aina discount. ■ jen@mauitime.com + @jenrusso For more foodie news, visit MauiTime’s food blog at: mauidish.com

nature inspired, local culture expressions and the color green! MAUITIME:What makes your line and store stand out from the crowd? MAUI THING: As always, our designs are inspired by good things on Maui. Whether it’s something in our daily life, or the unique beauty that we’re so blessed to live in, we grasp inspiration from all over the island. We are focused on the community, positive and thoughtful messaging, creativity, local culture and the beauty of the land we live on. All of this comes together and is portrayed in our collection, season after season. MAUITIME: Please tell me about the textiles you use in your designs. Any specific fabrics and colors that you love to work with? MAUI THING: This year, one of our goals is to do more cut and sew pieces. So stay tuned for fresh textiles and new cuts in our store. MAUITIME: What clothing and accessory lines do you carry in your store? MAUI THING: Mostly just our own line, but we also have Hanu Hawaii bikini bottoms, Jana Lam clutches, Mitusa Maui hats and pouches and jewelry from all types of Maui girls. MAUITIME:What’s the staple clothing item or accessory every woman on Maui be sure to have? MAUI THING: A pareo. You can turn it into anything. It can be cool, warm, flowy, beachy, for every type of situation you find yourself in here on the island. Wear it as a cute cover-up, a beachy dress, a scarf, a shawl... We loooooove our pareos! ■ jen@mauitime.com + @jenrusso For more A&E news, visit MauiTime’s event blog at: mauivents.com

riday Town Parties wouldn’t have got their wings without the enthusiasm and marketing from Maui Thing, which moved in on the Market Street scene just five years ago. These days every town on Maui seems to want a Friday night party and Maui Thing is setting the trends in the Maui fashion scene. This Friday, Wailuku will light up with Maui Thing’s annual summertime birthday block party featuring a secret band and a highly anticipated fashion show. MauiTime tracked the busy bees behind the brand– owner Saedene Ota and marketing manager Ashley Takitani–for a chat about what keeps Maui Thing stuck on good. MAUITIME: Maui Thing’s stage has rocked Wailuku First Friday.What are some of the highlights from the past five years? MAUI THING: We are blessed to have had such great local artists play music for Wailuku...Uncle Willie K., Kaumakaiva Kanakaole, Amy Hanaiali‘i, Kimie Miner, Justin Young to name a few. MAUITIME: The Maui Thing window display is always a pleasure to look at. Who designs it? MAUI THING: It’s a collaborative effort between everyone. Sometimes it’s a designer, sometimes a sales associate, sometimes we partner with a non-profit. Either way, we love to keep it fun and fresh. MAUITIME: Tell us more about the process of coming up with the clever tees and garments behind Maui Thing’s brand.

MAUI THING: The process really quite simply involves everyday inspiration by our beautiful surroundings. A design can be sparked by a childhood memory, a simple conversation with a friend or anything else we come across! Although we do have design styles and overall themes each season, we definitely stretch it to encompass whatever each designer is currently motivated by, as long as each design is “stuck on good” and inspired by good things on Maui! MAUITIME: You’ve hired a fortune teller to tell the future for Maui Thing. What did she say? MAUI THING: That we continue to cultivate our designs and our messaging. We have a lucky break when local boy gone global celebrity, Bruno Mars, is photographed wearing one of our t-shirts. She goes on to explain that our web sales blow up all across the nation, spreading the word about being “stuck on good.” MAUITIME: Maui Thing has an affinity for local entertainment. Why is that important to your brand? MAUI THING: We are simply music lovers and love supporting local artists. There’s just so much talent on our small island and we love spreading it. We saw potential in Wailuku First Friday when it first started and dedicated our efforts to not only creating a fresh, local clothing brand, but also playing a large role in creating a thriving community in Wailuku. Providing a stage and entertainment during the event seemed like a great way to help Wailuku come alive every first Friday of the month. MAUITIME: How did you get your start in the fashion design and retail industry? MAUI THING: Our formal training

is actually in graphic communications. As graphic designers our responsibility is not only to create visually compelling image but to also communicate a message. In launching our retail store, we were fortunate to hire a lead manager/ buyer from Honolua store. She was able to help us to lay the groundwork for a running clothing retail business. MAUITIME: How did you manage to launch your own fashion line? MAUI THING: With fearless confidence and the support of family and friends (Big Kahones). We truly believe that in a small community like ours, you first need the support of the ones that are closest to you. I guess that’s why our store is in Wailuku Town. The location is not ideal for any retailer, but I guess we’re a little stubborn in wanting Wailuku Town to become the vibrant place that we all wish it could be. MAUITIME:What is your design philosophy? MAUI THING: To listen, learn, grow and in the end believe in your product. To be honest, we’ve come up with concepts that we thought were genius, but they would fall short on sales. Other times we would bang out design and it would end up being a best seller. There are no absolute solutions when it comes to fashion because everyone has varying degrees of taste and rationales for their purchase. In the end, our goal is to connect with our consumers at a higher level. We want them to believe in our product not just because it looks cool, but also because it represents a philosophy of acceptance, creativity, understanding and all things good on Maui. MAUITIME: What are your top five hot trends for the upcoming summer and fall seasons? MAUI THING: Flowy tanks, crop tops,

Film

The Lone Ranger He takes way too long to ride off into the sunset

The Lone Ranger ★★★★★

Rated PG-13 / 149 Min.

A

better title would have been The Mighty Tonto and His Uninteresting, Whiny Masked Sidekick, but I’m getting ahead of myself. In this adaptation of the classic radio serial, Armie Hammer plays a bumbling lawman who pursues a dastardly villain (William Fichtner, effectively nasty) and learns to become a desert warrior through the help of Tonto (played by Johnny Depp), a Native American on a mission of vengeance. Coming from producer Jerry Bruckheimer, mega-star Depp and director Gore Verbinski, it has the same plusses and minuses of their phenomenally successful Pirates of the Caribbean movies. On one hand, Depp is excellent, some of the swashbuckling action is great and, as they did with the long-dead pirate genre, they have brought the oftendormant western back to life.

This is the real deal: a rootin’ tootin’, spurs n’ dirt, cowboy western, minus any sci-fi or high concept crossbreeding. But it’s also bloated and overplotted. Hammer and love interest Ruth Wilson are, amazingly, even more bland and less interesting to watch than Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley. Hammer was sensational playing twins in The Social Network, but in his first big leading man role, he fails to make the part his own. Making Tonto the lead was a smart move. Depp’s deep-voiced Tonto is a mostly physical turn that resembles not Captain Jack Sparrow but his Chaplin-esque Benny and Joon character. Depp famously sparred with Disney executives over his brilliantly bonkers turn in the original Pirates. Here, he and Verbinski have pushed their offbeat tendencies even further, making a gritty, nutty and, at times, shockingly violent wild west drama, with visual nods to gonzo classics like Little Big Man and El Topo. It’s hard to say what audience this was intended for, as the overlong running time and sheer nastiness of the violence

make it an odd choice for summer programming. The typically inventive work from Three amigos Depp upstages everyone else. I don’t know why an actor of Tom Wilkinson’s caliber would appear in such an uninteresting role, Helena Bonham Carter seems to have showed up because, well, Depp’s here, so why not? At least Barry Pepper looks to have kept his True Grit mutton chops in case he was cast as another cowboy. A quiet, nostalgia-evoking prologue, set in 1933 San Francisco, seemed like a good idea, until the movie keeps cutting back to it. The depiction of unethical treatment towards Native Americans is too much for this movie and needed to be the focus of a worthier, more focused film. Once we get to the grand finale, in which the William Tell Overture finally plays out in full and the amazing stunt work piles high, it comes too late. Perhaps someone realized the film wasn’t any fun and tried to inject the last 15

minutes with as many great moments as possible. I liked a brief scene involving scorpions, showcasing Verbinksi’s typically ghoulish sense of humor (on hand ever since Mouse Hunt, his first and still-best movie). The post-credits shot, which I won’t reveal, is a poetic touch but will likely go unappreciated by audiences looking for a good time and not caring about social commentary. I want to give Depp and Verbinski (all right, and Bruckheimer, too) a tip of my hat for making a old fashioned western with many risky touches. Problem is, as you’re watching it, you can’t help but think about the scenes that should have been cut out. There is a bold, uniquely rebellious film in there, and it’s been weighed down by too many narrative saddle bags. ■

Horoscope

Sign Language CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Although I’ve occasionally been known to badmouth Cancers (usually after an especially hard (and often unintentional) pinch), if only by repeating—and therefore reinforcing—less-than-flattering stereotypes, I don’t want you to think that I don’t adore you. I usually only mention your supposed shortcomings to point out their source—the hardships you suffer by experiencing emotional depths and heights that would ruin lesser men and women. Wield your famous Niagarastrength fount of compassion, fortify your ego with self-knowledge, and recognize your criticizers for what they often are: those who love you best. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) You’re like a lion that’s stumbled upon a three-way tug-ofwar over a leopard’s kill. Crocodile, hyena, and spotted cat are facing off over the dead gazelle. You’re hungry, but consider your choices before you indulge your appetite: You could leave the three to their morbid showdown, and concentrate on catching and keeping your own prize; you could dive in, probably getting roughly one quarter of the bounty; or you could wield your infamous roar to scare off one or more of the other predators, resulting in more for you. I don’t know which choice is best, but I can tell you what’s worse: not choosing at all. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) One reason you’re able to juggle many diverse activities and handle them all expertly is your ability to focus on each one so intensely that it’s reduced to the simplicity of an old-school video game, like Pong. Yet you never lose sight of the big picture, and the way each individual piece fits into the larger puzzle that is your life. As with every strength, however, this one’s occasionally a weakness. For example, this week, you may encounter the kind of task whose complexity is irreducible, and whose relevance to your other goals and desires is ambiguous. You can return to superhuman multitasking next week, but for now accept your demotion to mystified human being (like the rest of us), and give yourself permission to bumble. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) Open-mindedness, flexibility, sensitivity—these are all good things, right? Not always. Libras are so good at perceiving and fulfilling whatever role a situation seems to demand of you that you do it almost automatically. By the time you check in with your feelings about the role you’ve started to play, it’s often too late to get out of it easily. Don’t be so eager to avoid conflict, disagreement, obstinacy. These are best defenses, because the decisions and commitments you make this week have more sticking power than usual. Make sure they’re ones you want before you agree to them. In other words, before you say, “I do,” ask yourself: “Wait…do I?” SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) If you’ve ever been or known a 13-year-old boy, you’ve probably witnessed a helplessly fanatical dedication to some slightly ridiculous task, like beating a video game. In this state, he barely eats or sleeps until he’s accomplished his ambition. Most adults don’t know how to summon such raw, zealous determination. Scorpios, however, are blessed with just this ability. Unfortunately, this week your most obsessive tendencies may be oriented towards things that have little use in your larger life plan, like video games. Since a few of your real goals could benefit from a little consuming passion, try to redirect your inevitable urges at them. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) Like any sexy spy, you have the usual array of tools to thwart the villains in your life—impenetrable disguises, connections, and the ability to hurl yourself, in classic chase sequence cliché, through a narrowing sliver of an opening, while your enemies dance in frustration beyond the door, window, or speeding freight train blocking their way. However, unlike in the case of fictional spies, your foes don’t actually consider themselves evil; they’re just operating from a different rationale. Therefore, don’t get too excited and action-oriented. Since you may have to face them in contexts where shooting them in the foot and running like hell won’t go over so well, like at work or in the bedroom, keep that in mind, and consider negotiation over aggression.

QUIZunderstood ANSWERS

...to questions from page 4

1: D–The Grand Wailea Resort. 2: E–“DOMA UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!!! America, [EXPLETIVE DELETED] yeah, baby!!!!”

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) Your best friends are the ones you never need to explain anything to; they already know your whole backstory, and virtually everything about you and everyone you know. Naturally, getting to that place of trust, knowledge, and experience usually takes a really long time, and as you get older, achieving that level of intimacy and comfort with someone is more and more of a challenge. However, my astrological forecast says that there’s no better week this year for you to meet a new best friend (without leaving your old ones behind). You get what you ask for, Capricorn. Now don’t waste it. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) Be warned: You’ve recently misplaced the ability to determine when enough is enough. You’re not usually prone to the kind of excess that Scorpios delight in, or Pisces helplessly succumb to. But this week, you’re likely to want to eat desserts until you puke, have sex ‘til you’re raw, or shop until you drop, literally. Even with my warning, you’ll probably stumble towards some extremes anyway. Don’t beat yourself up for your immoderation, however. Overindulgence can teach you almost as much about yourself as restraint. Until you figure out when fun stops being fun, you’ll probably always stop far short of that limit. Now that you know where it is, you’ll be able to party right up to it. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) Although Pisceans are just as moody and sensitive as Cancers, they’re rarely condemned or scorned the same way. People tolerate—and even adore—your sweet vulnerability, and get annoyed at similar mood swings in your crabby cousins. I believe this stems almost wholly from your profound ability to truly let things go— something those pincer-wielders are notoriously bad at. Although you sometimes envy them their dogged perseverance, and would occasionally do well to emulate it, this is not one of those weeks. Don’t screw up your good rep by clinging to the source of your shifting tempers—be it person, experience, or habit. Instead, demonstrate your famous ability: let it go. ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) You’ve been so good. Over the past month or two, I’ve actually heard Rams described (by people who just met them recently) as low-key, or mellow. It’s good to know such adjectives lie within your range, but please don’t settle into placidity—we adore your excitement and zeal. Luckily, when the Full Moon hits your sign this week, you’ll have your chance to not only leap out of the woodwork you’ve been hiding in recently, but set it on fire. That’s right—this is your astrological mandate: Bust out of your quiet disguise and don’t bother putting it back on until everyone in the room knows who you are.

TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) This is a good week to forgive someone for foul deeds performed in a past life, pass along a treasure left to you by a nearly forgotten ancestor, or plan a surprise for someone you barely know (but would like to know better). These kinds of acts, which require a high degree of sensitivity and an ability to focus on something besides yourself, are likely to be rewarded—as well as rewarding in and of themselves. On the other hand, more selfish or self-absorbed actions, like escalating a grudge, asking for a raise, or throwing a party for yourself, are likely to backfire dramatically. Need I say more? GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) You’ve occasionally judged others for lacking what I call stick-to-it-iveness. Some people give up on things like relationships and jobs at the first signs of difficulty. That sucks, but sticking it out beyond a certain point does, too. Lately, I’m worried that you’re taking your concept of commitment too far. Yes, when it’s good, and real, it can be painful sometimes—just make sure that it’s not consistently hurting you out of all proportion of what it’s worth to you. You’re famous for your loyalty, and cherished for it, but please don’t carry it such extremes that you end up hating yourself—not when you could be finding someone who’s actually worthy of it, instead.
