tion Practices (OIP) to look into whether the council may have discussed matters not on the closed session agenda–a violation of the state Open Meetings law. That apparently sent the County Council into a tizzy, and now they’re asking a judge to keep the OIP from issuing an opinion that says something other than that the Council is on the side of the angels. Given the council’s long and disturbing history of holding the public’s right to see how our elected officials make decisions involving our tax dollars in open contempt–and its thoroughly misguided opinion that the Maui County Corporation Counsel’s office is the personal attorney for the County Council (it’s job is to act as legal representation for the County of Maui as a whole, not merely the Council)–none of this is surprising. They’ve been denouncing the Sunshine Law for years. “[T]he Sunshine Law detracts from the effectiveness of county councils in carry-

If you happen to visit the website for the Trump International Hotel & Tower in Waikiki (Trumpwaikiki.com), which opened in 2006 and holds 456 residences and six penthouses, you’ll find that the hotel chain itself describes itself as “Unbound by conventional thinking.” Considering that the company is named after Donald Trump, the wealthy real estate mogul, it’s hard to find truer words anywhere elsewhere on the Internet. For most of his public life, Trump was merely an obnoxious rich guy with a double comb-over who confined himself to making (and losing) vast sums of money in commercial real estate development. But when Barack Obama first got himself elected President of the United States Trump remade himself into a race-baiting troll who endlessly says Obama wasn’t legally born in the US. Hey, anything to get on television, I guess. Trump–and the rest of the so-called “Birther” movement of cynical loons– peaked during the 2012 presidential election, then fell sharply off the map after Obama cruised to re-election. I naively figured that he would return to the confines of his luxuriously appointed cave (or wherever it is that he spends his days muttering about vast bureaucratic conspiracies), but I’ve been wrong before. The tragic death of Hawaii Health Department Director Loretta Fuddy in a Dec. 11 Makani Kai Air plane crash off Molokai proved too much for old man Trump to ignore. “How amazing, the State Health Director who verified copies of Obama’s ‘birth certificate’ died in plane crash today,” Trump tweeted on Dec. 12, “All others lived.” Packing so much insinuation into such a brief statement is an act of genius. Yes, there were nine people on board the Cessna 208 Grand Caravan that made an emergency water landing just minutes after departing from Molokai on its way to Oahu, and only Fuddy died (the cause of the crash and her death is under investigation, but a Dec. 14 Associated Press story citing one survivor says she survived the
impact). Were Trump an actual human being with enough empathy to picture someone like Fuddy as a person–rather than just another crudely drawn stick figure in his nasty, illogical conspiracy–then he might have hesitated before sending out such an insensitive tweet. But Trump has been dead inside for years, existing for little else than to gain attention in any way possible. Needless to say, it didn’t take long for Makani Kai Air President Richard Schuman to denounce Trump in public. “The conspiracy theory, I kinda took that a little personal that my company or my crew or my people had anything to do with such idiotic nonsense,” Schuman said in a Dec. 14 Hawaii News Now story. Actually though, Schuman was wrong about one thing. Trump’s dark innuendo about Fuddy’s death wasn’t idiotic–it was cold and calculated and, as his international hotel chain put it, was “unbound by conventional thinking.” He wanted one thing: get people to write about Donald Trump in any way possible. And it worked brilliantly.
requires them to meet and come to decisions in open, public and properly noticed meetings took another stupid step today. “While the Maui County Council refuses to turn over minutes of a closed session to discuss an investigation into the demolition of the old Wailuku Post Ofﬁce, the county has gone to court to try to keep the state Ofﬁce of Information Practices from issuing an opinion about a possible Sunshine Law violation,” The Maui News reported on Dec. 12. “In a lawsuit filed Monday in 2nd Circuit Court, the county asks for the injunction, saying it ‘would be irreparably harmed’ if the state office issued an opinion saying the county had violated the law without ‘giving proper weight’ to the county’s arguments and assertion of attorney-client privilege in the closed meeting.” Sigh. This stems from a closed door “executive session” meeting the council held back on Aug. 14 of this year to discuss

ing out their legislative responsibilities,” Councilmember Riki Hokama said in 2005. But then-Council member Danny Mateo said it best in a 2012 letter to the state Legislature, which was then considering exempting county councils from the Open Meetings Law. “With the strict regulations of the Sunshine Law on prohibited interactions, council members have little or no opportunity to communicate outside of meetings to find areas of agreement and avoid misunderstandings,” Mateo wrote. In the County Council’s world, the Sunshine Law prevents them from making decisions in private. This would then convert public meetings from open forums for debate–in which sometimes council members disagree with each other–into quickie rubber-stamp sessions where everyone looks slick and professional. American democracy is often a mess, but that’s the way it’s supposed to be. ■ firstname.lastname@example.org + @apignataro For more news articles, visit our news blog at: mauifeed.com

MAUI PREP REALLY HATES BEACH BUTTS The Maui District Student Council Organization at Maui Preparatory Academy is reaching out to spread the word about the Jan. 12 all-island Maui Cigarette Butt Beach Cleanup. The 10am-12pm cleanup is tentatively scheduled to be held at various island beaches including Olowalu in West Maui; Paia Bay and Ho‘okipa on the North Shore; and the Kamaole Beaches in Kihei. The organization may have a team in Molokai; they are also looking to contact Lanai High School for participation in the event. Maui Prep’s Student Activities Coordinator is asking other SACs, MDSCOs and Student Senates to publicize the cleanup at their
schools in a creative manner that will encourage maximum participation. The SAC suggests contacting Key Clubs, Service Clubs, sports teams, and any organizations who can join in. The SAC is also suggesting that individual schools celebrate and document participating students with photos and recognition. Schools are encouraged to make appointments with their County Council Representatives for a meeting between Jan. 13-17; they suggest the meeting be made as soon as possible and scheduled no later than Jan. 24. “The endgame is to deliver jars full of cigarette butts to County Council Representatives and to push for legislative action by showing that the rising generation isn’t okay with toxic chemicals and plastics in cigarette filters being the number one item picked up at beach clean ups,” said Andrew O’Riordan, Maui Preparatory Academy Student Activities Coordinator. Surfrider Foundation and the Coalition for a Tobacco Free Hawaii have all volunteered to staff, publicize and support the event. All bags, jars, and gloves will be provided by supporting organizations. “We aim to put Surfrider Volunteers in direct communication with SACs and MDSCO reps,” O’Riordan said.

Maui’s Bio-Beetle ECO rental car company took top honors in Green America’s People & Planet Awards, which honors innovative businesses that feature environmental and social considerations in their operations. The Kahului-based company was one of three winners–and among 10 finalists–in the quarterly competition. This round of the People & Planet Awards focused on green businesses that have taken superior steps to make transportation and travel greener and more sustainable. “Bio-Beetle ECO Rental Cars is honored to be selected as one of the winners in the People & Planet Awards,” said company co-founder Pamela Miedtke-Wolf. “We believe the whole planet wins when people make green choices in their everyday lives. We are trying to make it easier for those on Maui to do just that. Being green is a way of life. It’s about every aspect of business and home.” Bio-Beetle–the first and only rental car company in the world with cars fueled exclusively with biodiesel–launched on the island of Maui in January 2003. The company not only provides a green alternative to standard rental car companies, but it also strives to operate its business in an ecologically responsible manner. Each of the three winners received $5,000. In addition to Bio-Beetle, the winners included Milkweed Mercantile in Rutledge, MO;
and Greenway Transit in Durham, NC. Winners were selected by the public during a month-long open voting period online at Green America’s website. “We are so inspired by the winners of the newest People & Planet Award,” said Alisa Gravitz, president of Green America. “These businesses model creative and viable ways to make the travel and transportation sectors serve the green economy, whether through their use of clean energy, green construction materials, or organic food.” Future rounds of Green America’s quarterly award–for green businesses with 50 or fewer employees–will focus on a commitment to a green and healthy home and “green kids.” The businesses that the public vote on are determined by public nominations and an expert panel of judges. Green America (formerly Co-op America) is the nation’s leading green economy organization. Founded in 1982, the organization provides the economic strategies for companies and individuals.
BREADFRUIT RETURNS! When you think of fruit grown in Hawaii, pineapple, papaya and mango usually come to mind. But breadfruit has been a primary staple food in the Pacific for thousands of years. Next month, a half-day workshop will help the public become more aware of this island-grown produce. The “Breadfruit—From Tree to Table” workshop will be held Jan. 9, 2014 from 8:30am-12pm at the Community Services Building at UH Maui College in Kahului. The workshop is designed to help Hawaii’s growers in supplying grocery stores, restaurants and farmers markets with high quality breadfruit. It will provide information to chefs in an effort to help them become more familiar with breadfruit preparation and handling. “From Tree to Table” will also provide information for backyard growers and home users. The production of breadfruit is expected to increase dramatically over the next few years; production could represent millions of dollars in potential retail sales of the fruit in the next five to eight years. The increase prediction is based on the sales and distribution of thousands of breadfruit trees in Hawaii. Breadfruit can also play an increased role in island food self-sufficiency. The breadfruit tree is reportedly one of the highest-yielding food plants, with a single tree producing 200
Pono Pies will talk about using breadfruit at all stages, including making gourmet dishes from the ripe fruit. The workshop also will feature a segment on marketing and value added products, presented by Craig Elevitch of the Hawaii Homegrown Food Network and Ho‘oulu ka ‘Ulu project. The workshop will be presented by the Ho‘oulu ka ‘Ulu—Revitalizing Breadfruit project and is cosponsored by the State of Hawaii Department of Agriculture and Kamehameha Schools. Space is limited and advance registration is required. The workshop is $12 per person and lunch by donation. To register, visit breadfruit.info. If you’re interested in volunteering at the workshop or donating breadfruit or more information, email email@example.com or call 808-756-9437. ■ firstname.lastname@example.org + @apignataro For more news articles, visit our news blog at: mauifeed.com

COMPELLING EXPLANATIONS The Bank of England, arguing before the U.K.’s Parliamentary Commission on Banking Standards in October, warned against limiting the bonuses that bankers have come to expect from their lucrative deals–because that might encroach on their “human rights.” The Bank suggested it is a human rights violation even to ask senior executives to demonstrate that they tried hard to comply with banking laws (because it is the government’s job to prove violations).
A young woman, accosted by a robber on Washington, D.C.’s Capitol Hill in October, told the man she was a low-paid intern–but an intern for the National Security Agency, and that within minutes of robbing her, the man would be tracked down by ubiquitous NSA surveillance. She said, later (reported the Washington Examiner), the man just “looked at me and ran away (empty-handed).” And a 29-yearold cafeteria worker at Sullivan East High School in Blountville, Tenn., swore to police on the scene in October that she was not the one who took money from a co-worker’s purse, and she voluntarily stripped to near-nakedness to demonstrate her innocence. “See? I don’t have it,” she said. Moments later, an officer found the missing $27 stuffed in the woman’s shoe.

A Swedish TV show, “Biss och Kajs,” found itself in the spotlight in November–in Russia, where government-run television apparently used it to send a political message to Ukraine by highlighting the program’s theme of teaching children about bodily functions. The episode Russia chose featured three bulkilycostumed actors sitting around talking–with one dressed in yellow, one in brown, and the other unmistakably as a large, nude human posterior. (“Biss och Kajs” is highly regarded in Sweden; “biss” and “kajs” refer, respectively to the yellow and brown functions.) Ukraine (against Russia’s wishes) is considering a trade agreement with the European Union, and, the Russian station director said, pointedly, “There you have European values in all their glory.”

Katarzyna Dryden-Chouen and her husband Clive, busted in a London police raid last year with a marijuana grow operation that had netted an estimated (equivalent) of $450,000, insisted to a jury in October that their massive haul was not for sale but for “personal” use–in that they worship the Hindu god Shiva, and truly believed that the world would end soon and that they needed a sizable offering to burn. Actually, the jury bought it. “Distribution” charges were dismissed, but the couple still faces jail for their cultivation activity.
IRONY The Seattle City Council voted in October to seize a waterfront parking lot by eminent domain from the 103-year-old owner after negotiations to buy the property on the open market broke down. The state is funding a six-year tunnel-digging project in the area, and the city has decided it needs the property for not-yet-specified uses–except that in one part of the property, the city said it plans to operate a parking lot.
KARMA Larry Poulos was stopped on an Arlington, Tex., street in September, bleeding from a head wound and complaining that he had just been robbed by two men. A friend of Poulos later corroborated that, but police also learned that the money Poulos had been carrying was the proceeds of his having robbed a credit union earlier that evening. He was treated for his wounds and then arrested.
‘MASCULINE VALUES’ Breakaway former officials of the Boy Scouts of America met in Nashville, Tenn., in September to establish a Scouts-type organization that can freely discourage homosexuality, with one leader promising Fox News that the result would be “a more masculine” program. Another prominent attendee, also quoted in the Fox News dispatch, described his sorrow at the BSA’s embrace of gay boys. Since this issue broke, he said, “I’ve cried a river.”
NOT MY FAULT Greg Gulbransen of Oyster Bay, N.Y., announced in September that he was about to sue the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for dragging its feet in implementing the Gulbransen-inspired 2007 federal legislation that he said would save lives, especially those of toddlers. The unimplemented law would force car manufacturers to install rear-facing cameras as standard equipment, a cause Gulbransen embraced after accidentally, fatally, backing over his own toddler in the family’s BMW SUV.
PERSPECTIVE An exhaustive American Civil Liberties Union report in November showed that more than 3,200 people are serving life sentences in the U.S. for non-violent offenses (about 80 percent for drug crimes). Most were sentenced under “three-strikes”type laws in which the final straw might be for trivial drug possession, for instance, or for a petty theft such as the $159-jacket shoplifting in Louisiana, or the two-jersey theft from a Foot Locker. Said the jacket thief, Timothy Jackson, “I know that for my crime I had to do some time but… I have met people here whose crimes are a lot badder with way less time.” Added his sister, “You can take a life and get 15 or 16 years,” but her brother “will stay in jail forever. He didn’t kill the jacket!”■

SHARK ATTACKS THEY’RE MAKING HEADLINES, HERE AND AROUND THE WORLD.
HOW WORRIED SHOULD WE BE? BY JACOB SHAFER 10 DECEMBER 19, 2013
hey come out of nowhere. Every shark bite story is unique but that’s the thread that connects them all, like a trail of blood in the water. One second you’re surfing, swimming, paddling, whatever, and the next you’re staring down the wrong end of one of nature’s most voracious killers. Some get lucky, escaping with a few gnarly scars and the mother of all fish stories. Like Evonne Cashman, a 56-year-old retired teacher from Cerritos, California, who was snorkeling at Wailea’s Ulua Beach this summer when a large shark clamped down on her back. She was able to swim to shore and was rushed to Maui Memorial, where doctors stitched a 15-inch gash along her spine; Cashman later told KHON news that one of the doctors estimated the shark was more than 25 feet long, based on the size of the bite. “I didn’t see him coming,” recalled Cashman. “I didn’t see him leave.” Others aren’t so fortunate. Less than a month after Cashman’s encounter, 20-year-old Jana Lutteropp of Germany lost her arm—and, ultimately, her life—to a shark in Makena. And earlier this month, Patrick Briney of Stevenson, Washington was bitten while fishing from a kayak off Makena Landing. He died before he reached land. In all, there have been eight confirmed shark attacks in Maui waters this year, two of them fatal. That’s higher than the average of about three attacks per year, and the fatalities are the first in nearly a decade. What’s going on? Is this an anomaly or the beginning of a disturbing trend? And what, if anything, can we do?
The chances you’ll be bitten by a shark on Maui, or anywhere else, are vanishingly small. Think about it: there are 1.4 million people living in Hawaii, and about five times that many visit our state each year. Assume only one-third of those people get in the ocean. Now assume there are around twice as many attacks as have been reported this year—say, 20. Even with those generous assumptions, the odds of being chomped by a shark in Hawaii are one in a half-million. You’re much more likely to be struck by lightning, killed by your neighbor’s dog, drowned in the bathtub or a thousand other things you spend zero time worrying about. (By contrast, BBC reported earlier this year that humans killed an estimated 100 million sharks last year for their fins–Hawaii outlawed the sale of shark fin products in 2010.) Still, all the numbers in the world can’t erase the terror, the instinctive
drop in the stomach, that comes when you see a large, dark shape in the water. We are genetically predisposed to fear
sharks. They are the apex predators edators of the sea; when we enter their domain main we are at their mercy. And sharks don’t ’t show mercy. So let’s forget the math for a moment, or at least reframe the question: even if the odds are infinitesimal, is it possible sharks are becoming more aggressive toward rd people? Archie Kalepa, renowned d waterman and former Maui County ocean safety officer, thinks so. “It’s premature to say exactly ctly what’s going on, but this is definitely ely a concern to me,” Kalepa said after thee most recent fatal attack. “Something is going oing on.” Pressed for guesses, he cited ted several possible factors: an increase in the sea turtle population, a resurgence in tourists and therefore ocean users, even the deer swimming in the ocean. “All this needs to be looked at,” said Kalepa. “[Sharks] harks] are such powerful creatures, we need d to show them a healthy respect.” Kalepa knows firsthand: he once swam
sanctioned shark “kill zones” on the country’s west coast after six people were fatally attacked over a two-year span. The pushback from scientists and environmental advocates came fast as a great white on the prowl.
“My immediate reaction is disgust,” George Burgess, a prominent Florida shark researcher told Nature. “This is an archaic response to this kind of a problem, and one most scientists thought had seen its day decades ago.”

Kalepa said he could support culling sharks if the problem persists. “Native HaHa waiians hunted the sharks,” he pointed out. “I know not everyone everyon agrees, but when human life becomes involved, involve when the danger ini creases, there needs nee to be some level of protection.” “I say that,” he added, “with a heavy heart.” hea Killing sharks to protect people is alw always controversial.

But if culling isn’t the answer, what is? Right now, for Hawaii, it appears to be wait and see. And study. In September the University of Hawaii and state Department of Land and Natural Resources began monitoring tiger shark activity around Maui to help determine “management options.” “Historically, October through December are the months when the rate of shark incidents increases,” DLNR chair William Aila said in a release announcing the monitoring program. “This is part of traditional Hawaiian knowledge, reinforced by our own statistics. So we urge people to be extra cautious.” Still, Aila added, there’s no cause for panic—yet. “These appear to be random events involving sharks of different species and different sizes,” he said. “There’s nothing we can yet discern that connects the incidents or provides any sort of explanation.” Kim Holland, a UH shark researcher,
concurs. “We don’t know if this increase in attacks is a blip or the beginning of a longer trend, a ‘new normal’,” Holland wrote in an email to Mau-
iTime. “Obviously, we can’t know this until more time has passed—perhaps another two years or so.” Holland concedes that the recent uptick in attacks has come suddenly, emerging from a pattern of low attack rates. But, he argues, to prove cause and effect you have to show something else has changed, some contributing factor. A smoking gun. “I can’t find one,” Holland said. “The levels of spearfishing, the amount of shore fishing, commercial fishing, the underlying health of the reef ecosystem, the size of the turtle population, the number of visitors—all are pretty much the same today as they have been for the last decade or more.” Holland said he puts his money on the “blip” subsiding, but added, “If this is the new normal, we may have to rethink our current thoughts about shark behavior and management.” “Sharks are not man-eaters,” Maui Rep. Kaniela Ing wrote recently on his website. “They don’t bite people because they are hungry. As [legendary surfer] Keoni Downing put it, ‘When I’m hungry I don’t just take a bite of musubi and put it back on the plate. I eat the whole thing.’” Still, when you’ve got a mouth full of steak knives, a nibble is all it takes. So, Rep. Ing and other officials urge, we’ve got to exercise caution and use common sense. A flier released recently by Mayor Alan Arakawa’s office runs down the familiar but easy-to-forget laundry list: don’t enter the water with open wounds; don’t swim in murky water, when it’s raining or at dawn and dusk; don’t swim near fishermen; don’t swim alone. And, if it needs to be said, never provoke a shark, be it a massive tiger or an unassuming white tip. That’s another common thread among the attacks—in almost every case, the victim was doing something that upped the risk factor (besides simply getting in the water). Cashman, the California school teacher, was snorkeling by herself in low visibility. Most of us have done that at least a few times; but where most escape unscathed, Cashman paid the price. Her reaction, though, is telling. “I hear it’s very rare,” she told a Los Angeles TV station after returning home. “It would have to be even more rare for it to happen a second time. I can’t imagine not snorkeling again—and I don’t want to be afraid of the water.” ■ email@example.com For more news articles, visit our news blog at: mauifeed.com

Cafe Central They’re even better now that they’re on Market Street in Wailuku their French toast, pancakes and waffles ($6.25-$6.75). Oh, and their crepes and berries with vanilla fondue and mango sauce ($6.25) is something you can’t get anywhere else on Market Street. The breakfast plates come with roasted potatoes or fried rice, steak, sausage or bacon and eggs cooked how you like them. Their mini loco moco has its place here, too, for $7.50 and the New Zealand scramble of corn beef and eggs is a great treat. But as was the case with their old location, lunch is where Chef Bumanglag shines. Again you’ll find his unique twists on the very familiar plate lunch-
there are creative sandwiches like the curry-spiced chicken on flatbread or the taro-crusted fish with avo aioli on wheat that keep the menu interesting. Want something more substantial than a sandwich or salad? Cafe Central’s fish tacos comes three to the platter and are served with orange slices, chips and a spicy aioli. If you’re up for a plate lunch ($8.95 to $10.25), they come with hapa rice and potato salad, but you can add a side of tossed salad. The plate menu has some veggiefriendly options like seared tofu stir fry, but their seared ahi is a specialty.

e’ve seen a lot of changes at the restaurant space in Wailuku Town’s Pono Building. There was the Old Wailuku Grill, and before that Cafe O’Lei. But the business lunch customers in Wailuku aren’t ones to dwell. When Cafe Central moved from Hart’s Corner (Vineyard and Central) up to Market, they dove right in. Cafe Central is run by Chef Willie Bumanglag and his wife Lorn. He does the cooking and she’s at the counter helping customers. Bumanglag worked in the resort industry for years before branching out into his own catering and lunch window business, and now they’ve expanded to a full-size dining room with sit-down service. The dining room is modestly decorated with bunches of cheerful faux flowers in the window, and it’s always comfortable. Cafe Central opened in Hart’s Corner in early 2011, in the location Hart’s Donuts gave up. They were an especially big hit at our office, and we’d get great take-out there like salads and wraps from their takeout window, but there really wasn’t any place to sit.
But since their move to Market Street, I’ve relaxed in their dining room several times, and recently found that they’d added breakfast to their menu. In the morning hours they offer an array of basics, but they tweak them just enough to make them updated and exceptional. Their breakfast croissant sliders ($6.25) have asparagus along with tomato and cheese, and are also available on a brioche. There are also five different omelets on the menu, starting at $6.95, and they let you mix and match to make your own as well. For all the sweet tooth breakfasts, you could add a serving of fruit for a dollar, adding a healthy note to
es, sandwiches and salads.

The mango BBQ ribs are $10.25 for a half rack, and they also have broiled Thai chicken or chopped steak for the meat eaters. The pork ribs are also offered as a starter–sans the rice and potato salad. Other great starters include chili hot wings, fried coconut shrimp, pork spring rolls and veggie flatbread. They also have a catering menu available for parties.

Dazoo New name, new menu graces familiar old Paia establishment

“All of our fish is sourced fresh from Hawaiian waters, which we buy from Maui Seafood,” says Yulie. “Our fresh catch changes daily depending on what’s caught. The flat iron steak is from Maui Cattle Company, and we buy our breadfruit from our good friends at the Breadfruit Institute out in Hana as well. Our executive chef Helen Hong is at the farmers market every Tuesday and Friday, to hand select the finest produce. We also source from Traje farm, Waihee Valley Plantation, Maui Grown Tomatoes, Maui Sprout Farm, and many small scale growers who harvest from their backyards.” The menu has an eclectic mix of creative dishes from Chef Helen Hong, touching on her Korean background as well as the local fruits and vegetables she can find. The gluten-free and vegan-friendly Ulu Luau is really delicious–plus, you don’t see breadfruit served regularly on a dinner menu.

hile a North Shore eatery was undergoing a quick facelift recently, it suddenly sported a new name. The place once known as Moana Cafe had been reborn as the far more exotic-sounding Dazoo. The drastic changes in the dining room were a welcome upgrade in the Paia restaurant that hadn’t changed its layout in over 20 years. When new owners David and Yulie Law bought Moana Cafe in 2012, they lightly redecorated but kept the original name. When they started more substantial construction, it was time to change the name.
“We wanted the community to get used to the few updates we were making,” says Yulie Law. “So we have slow rolled the changes. We are loving the new look, and the feedback has been great from our customers. We aren’t done changing yet. We are taking over the empty space next door and planning to have a grab-and-go bakery set up there, but that is happening later.” The restaurant has completely changed their dining room, moving the bar and bakery case and bringing in new, modern furniture. There’s new color on the walls, a new hostess stand to greet customers at the door and lighting in the restaurant that’s warm and welcoming. The fixtures, art and signage are made from recycled cardboard. There are a few community tables for large groups as well. The acoustics of the room remain lively, and the new bar has an exquisite menu to boot, but we’ll visit that another time.
crave-able house-made kim chee. You choose your protein to top it, ranging from tofu to steak, and the spicy Korean gochujang sauce is served on the side. An egg served sunny side-up graces the top and you can special order a Maui egg for just 50 cents more. They’ve also got bahn mi–the famous and wonderful Vietnamese sandwich. “The kalua pork bahn mi to me is the perfect sandwich–it’s well-balanced and really flavorful,” says Chef Hong. “The salty and meaty kalua pork balances really nicely with the sweet and vinegar-ry pickled carrots and daikons. The tomatoes and cilantro add fresh flavors and you get a good burst of heat from the jalapenos. It’s all held together with a garlic aioli, and placed inside these incredible baguettes, which are made in-house. They are soft on the inside with a lightly crispy crust.” If you’re planning to hit up the bakery
The puffed rice nori is loved by adults and kids alike. I keep asking if they can make bag fulls for me to take home. “The ssam with the Maui Cattle flat iron steak is the dish I recommend,” says manager Ryan Mabbut. “Ssam is such a fun way to eat. Ssam translates from Korean to English as ‘wrap.’ With this dish, you’re served the steak alongside four side dishes called ban chan, and fresh lettuce leaves to make a wrap. I love the idea of compiling my own wrap from start to finish and it’s great to share among two people. It’s a very lean and healthy way to eat.” The Sunday brunch scene was also hopping, and early mornings are a quiet way to indulge in their bibimbap bowl. That bowl comes with rice that’s sizzling and crisp below and then topped with a healthy array of julienned carrots, zucchini, bean sprouts and their
case, Pastry Chefs Lokelani Sribura and Hillary Hawkins are busy like Christmas elves on the Key Lime Pie and Cheesecakes that are proving so popular. If you’re having dessert, Sribura says you have to try her pot de creme–it’s gluten-free and served with a Hawaiian Sea Salt macadamia brittle. “We want our guests to think about what they are eating,” says Yulie. “Whether that’s through our use of local ingredients, our Korean spiced flavor combinations or encouraging people to try something they’ve never had before, like our puffed rice nori seaweed. We also encourage all of our guests to share our dishes, kind of like Tapas style, so everyone has a chance to try something different.” ■ email@example.com + @jenrusso For more foodie news, visit MauiTime’s events blog at: mauivents.com

WITH MAUITIME FLAVOR
by Barry Wurst II
‘American Hustle’ It’s the best movie Martin Scorsese never made American Hustle ★★★★★ Rated R / 138 Min.
ust one year after his wonderful, uniquely offbeat valentine, Silver Linings Playbook, director David O’Russell returns with an amusingly brash American crime film. Here’s one of the year’s most entertaining films, filled with full-throttle performances, giant laughs and deliciously twisty plotting. It opens with a title card that declares “Some of This Actually Happened.” As with most movies that are “Based on a True Story,” in part or on the whole, I could care less how accurate this is as a reflection of recent history. With some movies, reflecting the real events with consistent fidelity is necessary. In most cases, who cares? As long as it could have happened, feels honest and shares the same truths and general revelations as the source material, I’m willing to go wherever a good movie wants to take me, regardless of its accuracy. If anything, American Hustle comes across less like a story based on true life (though it is) than a love letter to crime movies
from the ‘80s and ‘90s. Christian Bale, in a spectacular performance, plays an East Coast dry cleaner whose chain of stores, business acumen and persuasive nature have led him to become a prolific con artist. He and his partner, a firecracker with a flair for a British accent (played by Amy Adams), find themselves, for reasons I don’t want to give away, working with a curly-haired mark (played by Bradley Cooper). As it typically goes down in movies such as this, a small-scale con becomes larger with each turn, and greed, power and control corrupt each of the participants. Those caught in the sticky web are Jennifer Lawrence, playing Bale’s controlling wife, and Jeremy Renner, as a friend and asset to Bale’s grand scheme. To address the film’s greatest flaw, there’s nothing here that Martin Scorsese didn’t do first. O’Russell seems to have mimicked key plot points, a few camera choices, specific moments and the overall tone from Goodfellas, Casino and Mean Streets. Still, unlike well intentioned but forgettable wannabes like Blow, this one has the energy and vast amounts of talent, in front of and behind the camera, to overcome how familiar much of it feels.
What, they all look trustworthy to me...
If you’re going to pay homage/sendup/rip-off/ Scorsese, this is how you do it. Less a celebration of excess and crime and more a character study on the nature of lying as a profession and lifestyle, there is a depth here that resonates past the sheer entertainment value. This is one of those must-see turns from Bale. He’s a smart businessman whose insecurity is his Achilles’ heel. Renner’s politician is a character introduced as someone everyone likes and we believe it, as Renner conveys a warmth and directness previously unseen in his prior work. Adams is absolutely extraordinary: she has a monologue on the nature of deception that’s one of her finest moments as an actress. She is an enormously versatile actress, with a staggering range on display in films as varied as Enchanted,
The Master and this one. Lawrence’s flashy, admirably spunky turn will get most of the attention–she deserves it, as her career is on a roll and she’s a consistently strong actress. Yet even though this is another milestone for Lawrence, Adams is the bruised soul of the film, playing a professional liar who faces guilt too late. Cooper just keeps getting better and better, holding his own with his co-stars. The real breakout performance of film from a newcomer is, of all people, comedian Louis C.K., who was misused in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine but not here. He’s a scene stealer as much as Lawrence. A great surprise cameo from a Scorsese regular only emphasizes that this is the best movie Scorsese forgot he made. ■

by Caeriel Crestin
Sign Language SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21)
Pluralism, the idea that there are numerous other worlds harboring intelligent life, was taboo in the 17th century, when the powerful Catholic Church was desperate to believe that Earth was the center of the universe and God’s creation. One pluralist, Bernard de Fontanelle, however, delighted in the unpopular concept: “When the heavens were a little blue arch, stuck with stars, I thought the universe was too strait and close. I was almost stifled for want of air. But now it is enlarged in height and breadth … I begin to breathe with more freedom, and think the universe to be incomparably more magnificent than it was before.” You should identify. Despite external pressure to the contrary, your universe just got larger and more fascinating. Breathe easy.
prepared for the consequences. Remember, the fewer wars you start, the cleaner your karma. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20)
In the early part of the 19th century, new machines threatened to put many skilled textile laborers out of work. The Luddites were a secretive group of those workers who attacked mills and smashed the machines, risking serious punishments (that often included hanging) if they were caught, in order to keep their jobs. You might be tempted to attempt something similar—destroy, utterly, the perceived threat to an inner domain you considered sacrosanct. However, learn from the Luddites. They couldn’t halt progress, only slow it down. Don’t stand in the path of the inevitable. You can’t dam that river. Either forge across it now, while you still can, or better yet—ride it.
CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19)
Getting what you want right now is about as easy as training a cat—in other words, almost impossible. Cats aren’t inherently eager to please you, like dogs. They’re most interested in pleasing themselves, like some of the people you’re forced to deal with. You’ve tried reason, positive reinforcement, gentle nagging, passionate entreaties, and a multitude of other strategies. It’s down to two last options: Either you simply make it harder or more unpleasant for them to not do what you want than to do it; or you give up completely, and let it go. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18)
You’re a divine conduit for inspired cosmic force. Once it enters you, however, it’s like a raging torrent hitting a colander: it splits into innumerable smaller trickles. All that energy fractures into myriad foci, instead of just a couple massive, exciting projects. Thus progress on most of your goals is excruciatingly slow. This week, put most of your life on the back burner, temporarily. It’s time to get a little serious and take on the challenges that will really exercise your potential. Block up all those tiny drains on your brilliance and attention, leaving only the most important two (or at most, three). PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20)
Smell, our seemingly most primitive sense, is often linked to spiritual or esoteric ideas. Sainthood and divinity, for instance, have often been associated with pleasant scents (many saints were purported to exude delightful aromas, like roses or violets). Beyond mere scent, pheromones seem to have a lot to do with who we’re attracted to, trust, or simply like or dislike. Skeptics might argue it’s bullshit for you to heed a gut feeling that’s probably based on some chemical interaction happening below the level of conscious thought, but I hope you don’t. It might be bullshit some of the time, but not this week. While you’re looking for the lessons and experiences you most need, don’t think. Just follow your nose.
CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22)
Water every seed you plant; throw a little warmth and sunlight its way. I’m referring to your relationships. Your ability to perceive potential is usually an asset, but not now. Your great strength—intuition—becomes a great weakness when you use it to self-sabotage. Don’t get a glimpse of scarily exciting latent possibilities and declare: “I’m not ready for what I think this might be.” Fuck that. If it’s here now, go with it, ready or not. It may be your last chance for ages; that particular patch of ground won’t be fertile again for a long time, and the big “What if?” that’ll haunt you if you don’t explore it will last much longer still. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22)
Leos are deservedly famous for their loyalty, and that’s most obvious when your astrological ruler, the Sun, is in that persistent and solid sign, Capricorn (which it enters this week). Your devotion isn’t easily shaken; you’re willing to weather a lot for those you love. This isn’t blind praise, though; I mention it because it actually falls into that double-edged category Greatest Strength/Greatest Weakness. As you’ve experienced, sadly, your fealty can backfire miserably. This week, aspire to be as generous with your love as usual, but before you are, make sure the recipients: a) really want it, and b) deserve it. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22)
Slow, steady and certain are your mantric keywords right now. It’s probably aggravating that your planetary ruler is the speediest and least linear of the lot, Mercury. He zips forwards at breakneck velocities, then reverses course, seemingly randomly, for indefinite periods of time, all the while wreaking havoc with your (and everybody’s) intentions and emotions. Luckily, you’re no mindless automaton, driven by inhuman astrological forces. Although you’re not immune to Mercury’s occasionally manic influences, you can resist them. Exercise your free will, remember those keywords, and you may just avoid being awarded the title of This Month’s Superflake.

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19)
Pretend you’ll momentarily be handed the direct cellphone number to a famous celebrity you admire (or lust after), an influential politician, or some human embodiment of divine inspiration or enlightenment. You’ll have fifteen minutes to pick his or her brain and find out everything you wanted to know about being popular, sexy, powerful, or wise. What will you ask? Plan carefully. Don’t waste precious minutes hemming and hawing, or exchanging gossip and recipes. Cut right to the real meaty stuff. Once you have your list of questions, answer them; The universe, for a limited time, is giving you unprecedented insight regarding the answers to your most pressing concerns. Heed those resolutions. They’re all exactly right. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20)
When Captain Robert Jenkins exhibited his ear (severed eight years earlier in a skirmish with the Spanish Coast Guard, who believed him guilty of smuggling) in the British House of Commons, it so inflamed public opinion that the Prime Minister was reluctantly forced to declare war in 1739 (now known as The War of Jenkins’ Ear). He may have been trying to incense people to correct an ongoing wrong, or he could have simply wanted them to exact belated vengeance on his behalf. Before you use a personal matter to manipulate people, are your motivations pure? Don’t wave that shriveled bit of ear around unless you’re
LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22)
Kicking ass is one solution. You’re certainly capable of whipping some serious butt to get what you want, right now. It may even seem necessary, and not all that undeserved. But playing rough is going to burn some bridges, bridges you probably won’t need—but you never know. I don’t intend to stop you if you still want to open a can of whoopass, but if you wait about half a week, you might be able to get the same results with nothing more violent than a lashing from your silver tongue. You decide which will be more effective, and fun. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21)
People brusquely dismiss Scorpios as being unduly obsessed with sex and death. I recognize this apparent fascination as your challenging spiritual exploration of everything that’s most real about human existence. Accompanying that soul-spelunking is a profound craving for sanctuary, for a feeling of safety Scorpios rarely get to enjoy. Why not? Every time you find a haven, you take that opportunity to venture into the dark and dangerous parts of your psyche. I don’t mean to discourage you in your important philosophical adventuring, but even you need a break once in a while. This week, seek out the safety you crave, but this time just relax and enjoy it for once. To contact Caeriel send mail to email@example.com.
