REP. TULSI GABBARD THINKING
WHEN SHE WENT TO
IGE & CHIN
ATTACK OF THE BROCIALISTS Not sure why you have chosen to continue attacks on Tulsi, seemingly when she does something that gets wide press (“What was Rep. Tulsi Gabbard Thinking When She Went To Syria,” Feb. 2, 2017). Perhaps [former Congressional candidate] Shay [Chan Hodges] is urging you on. Regarding your latest effort, on Syria, I notice you rely heavily on Human Rights Watch (HRW) reporting for your judgment. Here is an excerpt of a letter, signed by at least 100 respected scholars and peace activists who find faults with HRW reporting. “The issue of Human Rights Watch (HRW) and their close links to the US government has been highlighted by a recent letter sent to Ken Roth on behalf of Nobel Peace Prize Laureates Adolfo Pérez Esquivel and Mairead Maguire; former UN Assistant Secretary General Hans von Sponeck; current UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in the Palestinian Territories Richard Falk; and over 100 scholars. The letter focuses on HRW’s closeness to the US authorities and the “revolving door” phenomenon whereby key personnel revolve between HRW and the US government. Undoubtedly, HRW is wedded to an interventionist agenda which minimises the importance of social and economic rights and which sees US bombing as the answer to human rights problems.” You go on to close article with a considerable rant for peace and justice which will supposedly be furthered if only Tulsi would condemn more people more often, particularly Assad. So far, this tactic has not worked very well for
our government. Instead, it appears to have aggravated the situation. (This could open up a long discussion on the Russian role in Syria, a country near to its southern border, which appears to reflect other US/ NATO activity on its northwestern border. A common factor is US State Dept actions under Hillary and her diplomatic mentors, but that is another story.) I do not think, given the sum of USA involvement in the Middle East since the 1950s, that we can be said to have made things better- rather, sharply to the contrary. We have now escalated our crimes and interference with Iran to a level that Trump may be planning to justify nuclear warfare. Regarding Tulsi’s meetings and statements in Syria, I think it is fair to say she knows more about policy and results of USA military involvement in the Middle East, our war on terrorist groups and how support to locals has worked out than you or I do. Maybe best if you let facts speak for themselves, and not cherry pick them for interpretation. -Daniel Grantham, via email
What are YOU thinking? You like Human Rights Watch because they’re “not selective, because they’re not trying to favor any one regime over another.” But you object to Tulsi meeting with both sides to try to stop the civil war? You don’t like Assad because he’s a brutal dictator. Do you like our allies the Saudi princes who decapitate more more people than ISIS? And, by the way, what are we doing in Afghanistan besides protecting our allies the Opium Warlords as they smuggle opium to Pakistan and then heroin to Turkmenistan and on to Europe and America? Are we mad at Iran because their oil pipeline to Pakistan is in competition with the Russian Trans Afghan Pipeline going to the same customers in Pakistan and India. What are we doing there? Why don’t we leave? Tulsi’s right, it’s time to come home.

Malama Pregnancy Center of Maui
HAWAII LEGISLATURE TAKES UP ‘CRISIS PREGNANCY CENTER’ BILLS The Hawaii Legislature considered two bills this week that would slap new rules on limited service pregnancy centers (so-called “crisis pregnancy centers”). These operations, though they sound like medical centers, are in fact offices that give anti-abortion information and advice to the women who go to them. For that reason, organizations like Planned Parenthood have denounced them in pretty strong terms. “Crisis pregnancy centers often pretend to be real health care providers–but many are not,” states Planned Parenthood’s website. “These fake clinics often trick women with false advertising. They may make women think they will be offered unbiased information and a full range of health services. Crisis pregnancy centers also sometimes try to trick women by using names that are similar to the names of real reproductive health centers in the neighborhood. Many times, the crisis pregnancy centers are located very close to real reproductive health centers. This makes it easy for women to go to the crisis pregnancy center by mistake.” Last week, House Bill 663 and Senate Bill 501 came up for hearings (Feb. 2 in the House Committee on Health and Feb. 3 in the Senate Committees on Commerce, Consumer Protection and Health as well as Judiciary and Labor, respectively). Both bills take a hard line towards the centers. “The purpose of this Act is to ensure that Hawaii women are able to make personal reproductive health decisions with full and accurate information regarding their rights to access the full range of health care services
that are available to them,” states the text of HB663 (the companion bill, SB501, is virtually identical). “Because family planning decisions are time sensitive and care early in pregnancy is important, Hawaii must make every possible effort to advise women of all available reproductive health programs.” Among other provisions, the bills require these centers provide a whole host of health information, including on the legality and availability of abortion, to all women they serve. They also have to post the following notice: “Hawaii has public programs that provide immediate free or low-cost access to comprehensive family planning services including all FDA-approved methods of contraception, prenatal care, and abortion for eligible women. To determine whether you qualify, contact the appropriate MedQUEST division eligibility office.”
Testimony on HB663 is split fairly evenly between supporters and opponents. Laurie Field, Planned Parenthood’s Hawaii Legislative Director, offered testimony. “Anyone seeking health care should receive comprehensive, accurate, unbiased information in a confidential setting,” Field said. “Reproductive health care is no different. When women are fully informed, they are better able to make the best decisions for themselves about their personal health.” One individual, Ghazaleh Moayedi, a physician at the University of Hawaii, John A. Burns School of Medicine, Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Women’s Health, offered particularly strong support for the bill: “As a physician that also provides abortion care, I have many patients who fall victim to these pregnancy centers,” she testified. “I re-
Overheard CHILD [singing]: “Doo dee doo doo.” WOMAN: “Shhhh.” CHILD [singing]: “Sooo sooo me.” WOMAN: “Shhhhhh!” CHILD: “AFLAC!” Restroom in Ka’anapali, Feb. 3
cently had a patient that received an ultrasound at one of these clinics for pregnancy dating. When she asked for the ultrasound report so that she could obtain abortion services, the clinic refused to provide her records to her. Another patient of mine had been raped, became pregnant, and presented to a local limited service pregnancy center for pregnancy options counseling. instead of offering her referrals for sexually transmitted disease testing, emergency contraception, and rape survivor’s counseling, she was subjected to a ‘counseling session’ on why she should not have an abortion. This purported health center re-traumatized my patient.” In opposition to the bills, a variety of Christian organizations, as well as various limited service pregnancy centers in Hawaii (including Malama Pregnancy Center of Maui), submitted testimony on HB663. “[W]e believe all life is sacred,” stated Walter Yoshimitsu, executive director of the Roman Catholic Church in the State of Hawaii. These organizations rejected the view that the bills deal with medical issues, but instead offered that they limit their freedom of speech and freedom of religion. “The underlying truth of this bill is not difficult to identify. H.B. 663 specifically targets Christian life-affirming nonprofit and privately funded pregnancy centers to; silence their voice and First Amendment right to oppose abortion, encourage potential clients to seek state funded programs that promote abortion, and lastly to force the center and its staff and volunteers to violate their convictions by referring clients for an abortion,” said Joy Wright, executive director of Malama Pregnancy Center of Maui, in her testimony against the bill. “It is a bias[ed] bill in that abortion providers and primary care clinics are excluded from the mandate. If lawmakers in Hawaii are proposing this bill, shouldn’t abortion providers post a sign notifying their clients of their rights, and alternative programs such as pregnancy centers that would allow them to exercise their reproductive right? Women are smart and deserve the opportunity to be informed regarding pregnancy decisions including the choice carry the preborn to term and to parent. Pregnancy centers do not charge for their services and clearly relay that they do not perform or refer clients for abortions. Thus, the client is not mislead regarding services offered. Many pregnancy centers including the Malama Pregnancy Center of Maui are transitioning to operating under a state licensed Medical Doctor with a licensed nurse on staff. Pregnancy centers are nonprofit life-affirming faith based ministries that care about women holistically, the preborn, men, and the family unit. Pregnancy centers should be afforded their First Amendment rights per the United States Constitution.” At its Feb. 2 hearing, the House Health Committee deferred HB663 until Feb. 7. There’s no word yet as to what the Senate committees decided on SB501. ■ email@example.com + @apignataro For more news articles, visit: mauitime.com/news

The Paia Deal A&B quietly sells 339 acres of old Northshore sugar cane land
aia Town has a new neighbor–a big one. In December, Alexander & Baldwin quietly sold a 339-acre parcel of land that cups the entire west side of Paia to a California bus for just $9.9 million, or a little more than $29,000 per acre. Located across the street from the Paia Youth & Cultural Center, the parcel runs along the Hana Highway from the west boundary of Baldwin Beach to the Paia Bypass Road, then up the bypass to Baldwin Avenue and then to the old sugar mill. Although it was previously used to grow sugar cane, the land is by not limited to agricultural use. Under the Maui Island Plan, some of the land could be used for commercial and residential purposes. That’s what makes the selling price so surprising. By comparison, the County of Maui paid A&B $9.5 million for the 267 acres near Jaws–and that will remain undeveloped green space. The Paia deal, which closed on Dec. 20, came as a surprise even to some at the County of Maui, which had hoped to have a discussion with A&B about turning some of the land adjacent to Hana Highway into green space, according to County Communications Director Rod Antone. “The mayor has plans to develop a North Shore Regional Park that would connect Baldwin Park and Lower Paia Park on that parcel that A&B gifted to the county a couple of years ago,” he explained. “As part of that plan he had wanted to ask A&B for a greenway across the street from the parkland about the size of a football field, so that when people drive into Paia Town there would be green on both sides. “By the time we learned about this purchase it was already in escrow. We are still hopeful that we can work with the new owner about obtaining a greenway for the community,” Antone added. Last July, the parcel went into escrow with Paia businessman Michael Baskin, who has been fighting his own battles with the county over the Paia Inn and other properties he owns or manages in town. According to Baskin, those problems squelched his ability to close the deal and he flipped the property to Northern California businessman Sam Hirbod, 48, who purchased it under the entity EC Paia, LLC. It’s hard to know what Hirbod plans to do with the land. EC Paia is registered to the same address in San Ramon, CA as a number of other Hirbod businesses, most notably Eagle Canyon Capital. He’s the former president and CEO of Pacific Convenience & Fuels, which at one point operated nearly 600 gas stations and convenience stores. A glowing 2010 article written in the industry trade magazine Convenience Store Petroleum marveled that Hirbod–a rela-
tive unknown at the time–was able to acquire most of those properties from ConocoPhillips for a reported $800 million in 2008 amidst the rubble of the real estate meltdown and a “catastrophic financing environment.” Hirbod was described in the piece as a former “welterweight and avid kickboxer,” and “the kind of guy you want to have in your corner, not coming at you from the other side.” Revenues from Pacific’s operations were described as “just short of $4 billion in 2008.” But Hirbod has his fingers in a lot of corporate pies these days. Among his other companies registered in California, according to the CorporationWiki website: Expression Coffee West, Eagle Canyon Holdings, Golden Canyon Partners, Ramona Street Development and Buon Hospitality, which franchises several Corner Bakery Café restaurants in Northern California. Also registered at his San Ramon business address is the Seamms Foundation, established in 2013 to provide financial assistance to children under 18 with life-threatening diseases. Last November, the real estate information group CoStar reported that Eagle Canyon was putting a Bethesda, Maryland office building back on the market nine months after acquiring it out of foreclosure, but no word on a sale. Other entities registered at the Eagle Canyon Capital address are a number of commercial buildings in Northern California, ECC Macon, ECC Manchester & ECC Statesboro in Georgia, and ECC Berlin VT in Vermont, but it is unknown what these properties represent. Also listed at that address (and another in Pleasanton) is Eagle Canyon Management which promises to “work with you from the moment you discover our properties. We’ll help you identify the appropriate space, design your offices, create a plan for growth and expansion, and carefully manage the tenant improvement process.” Hirbod lives in Danville, CA and, according to Maui online property records, is also the registered owner, with Shereen Hirbod, of a home overlooking the Wailea Blue golf course. He did not return calls for comment. Calls to Eagle Capital and Eagle Canyon Management went straight to voicemail. Interestingly, the Los Angeles-based law firm Hobson, Bernardino + Davis lists Hirbod’s Pacific Convenience & Fuels as a client on its website. Partner Jason Hobson and fellow HBD attorney Mark Chasan are the driving forces behind TEACH (which we wrote about in our Dec. 1, 2016 cover story “For Lease: $1”), which has put forth a controversial proposal to develop the Old Maui High School property on the other side of Paia in Hamakuapoko. ■ firstname.lastname@example.org\ For more news articles, visit: mauitime.com/news

Labels can be good
PUKALANI SUPERETTE ADDS HAWAIIAN PRODUCT LABELS Pukalani Superette is supporting Kamehameha Schools’ students in their effort to advance Hawaiian cultural traditions and language through the use of ‘Olelo Hawai‘i labels on many of its store products. The Ola Na Iwi Club on the Kamehameha Schools Maui Campus is dedicated to perpetuating Hawaiian culture and language; in Hawaiian, ‘Olelo Hawai‘i means Hawaiian language and, while it takes just one generation to lose a language, it takes three generations to recover it. Club members believe that the active use of ‘Olelo Hawai‘i labels is one way to keep the Hawaiian language alive. Ola Na Iwi Club leader Kumu Kehau Lucas was inspired to put Hawaiian language labels to use at the Pukalani Superette after seeing them used at a KTA store on the Island of Hawai‘i. “Mahalo nui to Pukalani Superette for allowing our haumana this opportunity to spread ‘Olelo Hawai‘i outside of the classroom walls,” said Kumu Lucas. “These labels allow ‘Olelo Hawai‘i to become a part of the linguistic landscape of the Upcountry community and provide a fun way to learn basic Hawaiian words.” The labels, which were introduced at the Superette in December 2016, feature the Hawaiian word for the product on one line with the English translation below. Also appearing on the labels are QR codes, which when scanned with a smartphone, provide an audio recording of the correct pronunciation of the word and its usage in a sentence “As a local business serving Upcountry Maui for over 61 years, I feel this is a good way for the community to learn what our products are called in Hawaiian and how to pronounce them,” said Pukalani Superette General Manager Jerry Masaki. “I found that I didn’t know the Hawaiian name of many products, so it will be a good learning tool for all of us.”
KO HIRES NEW GENERAL MANAGER Chris Hong has been named the new General Manager for Fairmont Kea Lani’s restaurant Ko.
Hong brings more than 20 years of progressive restaurant management and hospitality experience to his role at the Kea Lani. He previously held food and beverage leadership roles at the Hyatt Regency Maui, Grand Wailea and Ruth’s Chris Steak House where he oversaw the operations as well as sales and marketing. “We are elated to welcome Chris to lead Fairmont Kea Lani’s signature restaurant, Ko,” said resort General Manager Charles Head. “Chris’s extensive background in restaurant management along with his customer focused drive for excellence will propel Ko to great success.” Hong began his career as a chef and holds a degree in Culinary Arts from the Le Cordon Bleu Scottsdale Culinary Institute. In his new position at the Kea Lani, he will manage all operational aspects of Ko as well as the private dining venue, Ko Garden. The award-winning Ko says it offers cuisine inspired by the vast ethnicities brought together during Maui’s sugarcane plantation era. The menu–originating from the kitchens of Ko chefs’ tutus and aunties–was designed to allow you to taste generations of local cuisine deep rooted in the island’s culture and history. And more than 90 percent of fish, beef and produce are sourced locally, making the flavors authentic and sustainable.
schools in Maui County were invited to submit a mikoshi design based on this year’s Honolulu Festival theme: “Cultural Harmony, a Journey to Peace.” In addition to showcasing the mikoshi, the annual Honolulu Festival features a weekend of free arts and cultural displays and entertainment performances. The students involved in creating the mikoshi design won a trip to Oahu sponsored by the Honolulu Festival Foundation, Hawaiian Airlines, the Japanese Cultural Society of Maui, Outrigger Enterprises Group, and Maui Ocean Center to showcase their winning piece. The mikoshi was created under the guidance of Maui High School teachers Casey Watanabe and Richard Pacheco. Maui High’s mikoshi will be displayed at the Hawaii Convention Center on Saturday,
unity. Some key components of the winning design include a roof design that consists of green ‘tiles’ of Konbu Maki (seaweed herring), which symbolizes a wish for scholarship and culture, with a yellow center, subasu (lotus root), which symbolizes an unobstructed future. The flag on the mikoshi was inspired by the Japanese flag. The bento box design draws influence from the flag through a cluster of roe surrounded by seasoned rice. The walls represent a diverse mixture of different foods coming together into a bento box to create cultural unity. The koi in particular, combined with a pineapple is strategically placed in the front of the mikoshi symbolizing the idea of putting ‘cultural unity’ first. The banner’s background of the Japanese cherry blossoms represents the coming of spring and blossoming life. And the veranda
MAUI HIGH WINS MIKOSHI DESIGN CONTEST Maui High School has won the 14th annual Maui Mikoshi Design Contest. The students’ winning cultural artwork will be on display before tens of thousands of residents and visitors at the 23rd annual Honolulu Festival, March 10-12. “Maui High School has developed a beautifully designed mikoshi that carefully ties together the unique cultures of Japan and Hawaii in a well thought-out way,” said Tsukasa Harufuku, President and CEO of JTB Hawaii. “We applaud the students for creating design elements that strengthen and bridge cultural diversity.” A mikoshi is a decorative float unique to specific prefectures in Japan that is carried by groups of celebrants during festivals.

John Bubar, 50, was arrested in Parsonsfield, Maine, in November after repeatedly lifting his son’s mobile home with his frontend loader and dropping it. The father and son had been quarreling over rent payments and debris in the yard, and the father only eased up after realizing that his grandson was still inside the home. And the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reversed itself in December and allowed Mary Thorn of Lakeland to keep her 6-foot-long pet alligator (“Rambo”) at home with her despite a regulation requiring that a gator that size needs a more spacious roaming area. Thorn and Rambo have been together for over a decade.
Jasper Fiorenza, 24, was arrested in St. Petersburg, Florida, in November and charged with breaking into a home in the middle of the night. The female resident said she awoke to see Fiorenza and screamed, but that the man nonetheless delayed his getaway in order to pet the woman’s cat lounging on her bed. And in December, Durham, Ontario, police officer Beth Richardson was set for a disciplinary hearing (“discreditable conduct”) because, earlier in 2016, after being called to intervene at a drug user’s home, she had noticed the resident’s cat “cowering” in a corner and had taken her to a veterinarian, but without asking the owner’s permission.
UNCLEAR ON THE CONCEPT QUESTIONABLE “I’m [as] tired of hearing the word JUDGMENTS ‘creep’ as any black person or gay person is of hearing certain words,” wrote Lucas Werner, 37, on his Facebook page in December after he was banned from a Starbucks in Spokane, Washington, for writing a polite dating request to a teenaged barista. Managers thought Werner was harassing the female, who is at least the age of consent, but Werner charged illegal “age discrimination” and made a “science” claim that “age gap love” makes healthier babies.
David Martinez, 25, was shot in the stomach during a brawl in New York City in December. He had inadvertently initiated the chaos when, trying to park in Manhattan’s East Village just after Saturday midnight, he moved an orange traffic cone that had obviously been placed to reserve the parking space. He apparently failed to realize that the parking spot was in front of the clubhouse of Hells Angels, whose members happened to take notice.
THE ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT
Taylor Trupiano grudgingly paid his $128 “traffic” fine in December, issued by a Roseville, Michigan, officer who caught his car warming up unattended -- in his own driveway. Police routinely issue such tickets (five to 10 each winter, based on a town ordinance) to send drivers like Trupiano a message that unattended cars are ripe for theft, which burdens Roseville’s police department. (A police spokesman said the driverless warmups are illegal even for locked cars.)
An unnamed pregnant woman convinced a reporter from Jacksonville, Florida, station WFOX-TV in December that the “positive” urine tests she was advertising on Craigslist were accurate and that she was putting herself through school by supplying them (making about $200 a day). The seller claimed that “many” pregnant women market their urine for tests–even though the main use of the test seems to be “negotiation” with boyfriends or husbands. ■

Hanging out Hanging out with with
Maui’ Maui’s i’s big-wave bi big-wave world world ld champ champ By L By Lantana antana Hoke Hoke PHOTO BY ERIK ADER
t the Women’s March on Maui on Saturday, Jan. 21, Paige Alms was moving through the crowd of thousands gathered to speak up for women’s rights and equality and against the authoritarianism of Donald Trump when she saw herself. It was a large photo of her surfing Jaws, posted on a sign with the words “Action is Power.” Alms went up to the woman holding the sign and asked if she could take picture with her. “Suuuuure…” the woman told her, clearly not recognizing her. “You have me on your sign,” Alms responded. “No big deal.” The story is surprising, given Alms’ superstar status in the surfing world, but also not surprising. Though famous around the world for her big wave surfing skills, she’s also an authentic, down-to-earth Maui girl. She’s Paige Alms, and whether she believes it or not, she’s a very big deal. Last November, with all of Maui at her back and the wind in her face, Paige Alms paddled her way into giant waves and a historic moment. For the first time, women were invited to compete at the Peahi Challenge held at the famous big-wave surf spot Jaws on Maui’s north shore. Alms was one of a dozen female competitors. With crowds lining the cliffs and her team cheering her on, Alms secured the win, becoming the first ever big-wave women’s world champion. It was especially sweet for the Haiku surfer, who won the contest in her own backyard. It was an extraordinary accomplishment for the young woman. Alms is one of the first of

her kind, women among men proving that they have what it takes to compete in waves that tower several stories high. There are only a handful of women (indeed, people) in the world able to do what she is doing, and that day, she marked herself as the best. Though Alms has been well-known around Maui for over a decade, growing from a talented grom into a fixture in the local surf community, it wasn’t until last year that she went viral in the larger surfing world, when she caught everyone’s attention with a huge barrel she snagged at Jaws. Since then, she’s gathered a list of unique and solid accomplishments, including taking home the Women’s Best Overall Performance Award at the 2015 WSL Big Wave Awards and being the subject of a film about her life, The Wave I Ride, which premiered at the Maui Film Festival. It was early in her career that she strayed from the traditional path of the pro-surfer. After trying out the pro tour, which she found expensive and unsatisfying, Alms tried a different track. As a teen, she began pursuing bigwave surfing, including paddling into Jaws. Despite her accomplishments in the water, she’s still genuine, and her attitude has earned her the respect of the surf and Maui community. I know this because I’m a part of that community; Alms and I both went to Haiku School, and I’m one of those who’ve watched her grow from a firecracker grom and ace soccer player into the young woman with focus and heart that she is today. On a sunny afternoon in Haiku town, after the dust had settled from her win and the holidays, we sat down at the taco stand to talk

not my personal goal. I want to ride them, not just survive them.” Alms also works hard outside of the gym and water. Unlike most professional surfers, who have a big-name sponsor that funds their travel, contest entry and gear, Alms has largely funded her own endeavors through manual labor. She currently works at the Paia Fish Market and repairs surfboards for a living. “I think when you have to work and be a professional athlete, you have to think in a lot of different ways,” Alms says of her hustle. She’s been creative in designing and financing her career in a way most pro surfers don’t have to. She also largely funds her own travel, through a mix of work and sponsors and odd jobs, like lifeguarding at Tavarua. “People are always asking, doesn’t it suck that you don’t have a major sponsor?” she said. “Well, yeah, but I’m super grateful for the sponsors
big wave surfing, but Alms was quick to point out the many remarkable male bigwave surfers who are. A group of women, spearheaded by Alms’ friend and fellow bigwave professional Bianca Valenti, spoke up. Valenti helped form the Committee for Equity in Women’s Surfing, and they lobbied the California Coastal Commission, which issues permits for the contest. The Commission required the organizers to include women in order to get their permit, so they begrudgingly did. But the organizers didn’t comply with the request to make a longterm spot for women in the contest. In a petty, bullying retaliation, the organizers did not invite Valenti to compete (though after several invitees were injured in the Peahi contest, she is now invited). Alms, however, was offered a spot right away, but she views the honor with mixed feelings.
what we’re doing now, setting up events, speaking out, talking to the right people,” she said. “We’re setting it up for the next generation.” Having received mentorship from some of the top women surfers, including Keala Kennely, Alms is acting in kind. Next weekend, Alms and a few of her friends are hosting an all-girls “learn to surf and SUP day” that they’ve done for four years. The girls are coming from the organizations Women Helping Women and Hawaii Family Services, “so they’re all girls that need to get in the water,” she said. It will be a quiet event without a lot of fanfare and advertising. Not that she needs to advertise much. Already a well-known face among Maui people, Alms’ win has brought on a bit of recognition in her day-to-day life. People recognize her all the time. Last week, a Canadian woman stood in the long Fish
Though Alms possess an obviously rare physical talent, even among advanced surfers, she also trains hard. “I think everyone in professional surfing has gotten more serious about training over the last 20 years,” she said. The physical preparation she does in endurance, strength and breath-holding is key to making her faster, better and safer in the water. “It’s always scary,” she says of dropping into mountain-sized waves. “The older I get, the more fearful I’ve become, because I realize what could happen.” Injury is an almost unavoidable peril of surfing big waves. Alms has enduring shoulder and hamstring injuries that sidelined her for months. “I take more calculated risks, where before I would be like, I got this,” she said. But she has a mature attitude toward surfing critically large waves: “I’m not trying to catch the biggest wave of the day; that’s
I do have that help me do what I’m doing. You have to look at it as a positive.” In light of how crowded the Maui surf scene has gotten, she’s been traveling to more remote spots. “I’ve been trying to go on surf trips where no one is around,” she said, showing me a pictures of a secret island paradise with coral and water so bright and crystalline it looked fake. Still, it’s not hard to notice the discrepancies between her situation and many of the male big names in surfing, who often secure big-name, big-money contracts. In fact, the disparity came to a head last year during controversy over whether women should be invited to another famous surf competition, the Titans of Maverick’s contest (it’s tagline is “Men Who Ride Mountains”). The organizers did not want to invite women. Not everyone an ally to women’s
So while Alms’ win, and the invitation to Titans of Maverick’s, which will include a onehour heat for six women, is clearly a step in the right direction, equity is a long way off. “Yeah, I won $15,000, but it should have been a $150,000, and hopefully it will be in the next five to 10 years,” she said. ‘My goal is to help set that up.” To be the best in the world at something, but not think wholly in terms of your own success, especially in an individual sport like surfing, is pretty remarkable. Alms is in good company; there’s a history of Maui surfers, like Ian Walsh and Kai Lenny, who give back to the community. “To be the best big-wave surfer in the world? That’s cool, but that’s self-fulfilling,” said Alms. “It’s not looking at the bigger picture.” She and her friends are focused on leaving a solid trail behind for others. “That’s
Market line just to get her autograph. “People will come in and say, ‘I read in Surfer Magazine that you work here!’” she laughs. After her win, Maui residents were bursting with pride for her, and she couldn’t go to the grocery store without running into someone congratulating her. “I told my boyfriend, babe let’s go to the other side for a date!” she joked. “It’s fun, though people are nice.” Alms’ journey, and her win, are symbolic and powerful and decisive. “I truly believe that winning that contest was for Maui, for women’s big wave surfing and for surfing in general,” she said. She’s definitely a pretty big deal after all. ■

about her journey and the state of women’s big wave surfing. Friendly and funny, she’s easy to talk to about a wide range of subjects. Over fish tacos, we talked about equity in women’s surfing, her thoughts on the future of her sport and the turtle-seeking tourist problem at Ho‘okipa. We ranted a bit about our love of travel, the insanity of Donald Trump and her love for ABC’s Scandal. We also found time to reminisce about when we were kids, a simple time when fish tacos were $3 and the lineup at Ho‘okipa wasn’t crowded. It was a typical Haiku scene, with a toddler and a dog tangling around our feet, a dubious looking man wearing patchwork bell-bottoms hanging around and, somewhat confusingly, hookah smoke floating by. Alms was fresh from a workout at Deep Relief Peak Performance, where she works out four to five days a week with her trainer and friend, Samantha.

spin through the kitchen and it was immaculate, with a gorgeous fresh caught Mahi getting broken down for their blackened fish tacos. “We try to make all our food shareable,” says Robb. “We call it modern American share plates. If you’re here with friends, grab some drinks and share some food. The Corn Lollipops are our version of Mexican street corn. The Slap Burger is our rendition of an In and Out Burger, you can add bacon, you can add egg. The shrimp and avocado salad is one of my favorites. The ceviche we wanted to have to feature local fish.” I dug into the shrimp and avo salad and shared it with our party–there was plenty to pass around. I also enjoyed the Slap Burger: it was a nice size with a soft warm bun and really fresh garnishes. The corn lollipops were delicious and messy. I didn’t try the pickle chips, but they’re up next time I visit. The evenings here have been going off.

ahaina just got fun again. The Dirty Monkey is a proper bar, restaurant and late night club all wrapped up into one second level balcony location across the street from Lahaina Fish Co. It’s good to see that Alen Aivazian, Brandon Bradford, Ryan Sweeney and Matthew Robb saw the potential to breathe new life in this space that was legendary for getting nuts on the Westside. While the old Moose McGillycuddy’s in Lahaina has been put to rest, The Dirty Monkey will hail a new era of amusement in its place. I trekked to Lahaina to meet up with operating partner Matt Robb and marketing and events coordinator Amber Meade. They said it wasn’t easy opening The Dirty Monkey. They had to rip out everything and start anew. It took years. “We wanted a bar in Maui,” said Robb. “We looked for five years. Nothing ever comes available on Front Street. So when we got wind that this place was coming available we hopped on it. There were some big players that were
coming after it, too! Hard Rock wanted a spot, Cabo Wabo was looking. We have eight bars in the greater LA area–the Blind Donkey, the Little Bear, the Surly Goat, they all have different names. This is the first Dirty Monkey, and the first outside of LA. We wanted to use 60 percent of existing electrical and plumbing here. But as we started digging into it, we saw that all the electrical was not up to code. We had to go in and completely rip everything out. All the electrical and plumbing. There is not an old piece of plumbing or electrical in these walls. And then it took us nine months to get the permits.” When you enter, the main bar is to the left and stretches out around the wall in an L shape with lots of seating. This place is device-friendly, and every seat at the bar has a charging station. The balcony is lined with high tops, and there are cushy booth seats and tables, too. The bar has dark charcoal walls, and a fresh new look. Flat screen TV’s are elegantly installed. The bar needs to be big to display more than 200 different whiskey and bourbons. “I walked this space every day for the last year,” says Robb. “I would envision the bar. I fine-tuned along the way. I really went through the functionality at the bar. We have all of the same type of TVs. Everything is 4K. We’re a
sports bar when there is sports. At night when the games are over, we go to old school movies and surfing videos. We like it dark and sexy at night. Dimmed down and very approachable.” When you’re faced with a selection of so many whiskeys, it may seem difficult to choose. But the staff will help you. According to Robb, they’re creating new whiskey fans every day. “We work with Maui Stone and Young’s Market,” says Robb. “We have New Belgium Blue Paddle exclusively and we’re going through 10 kegs of it every week. The bourbon selection alone is crazy. I have 215 now, and by the end of March I will have 265. We have some higher-end stuff coming, too. We already went through a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle, and we were only allotted one so we’re trying to get another bottle. We decided to really educate the staff so they can educate the patrons. What we have found is there are a lot of locals in this town that have not had the chance to try these, and they’re experiencing a different world. The response is insane. Everyone is here at pau hana trying an E.H. Taylor or Knob Hill or trying the Yamazaki. They’re saying it’s amazing.”
The Penicillin, its like a flu shot made with Black Grouse Scotch
I couldn’t resist having a Paloma at a whiskey bar, but that’s just me. I had to try the grapefruit liqueur with Espolon Tequila, and it was very refreshing. They have an exquisite craft cocktail list with a good balance of rum, gin, vodka and whiskey cocktails. But this is also a craft brew bar, and they have an extensive selection of craft beer from around the country. “We have a 16-tap system with glycol chilled lines,” says Robb. “Basically, when it leaves the cooler it continues at 30 degrees all they way ‘til it hits the tap and comes out cold. It’s all state-ofthe-art nitro-infused. The beer doesn’t set in the lines. There’s nothing worse than having warm beer. Beer is the heart of our company. The whiskey is the face, and the beer is our heart.” As for the food, the menu is short and simple. Dishes like pub chips, pickle chips, ceviche, wings, corn lollipops, taro burger, slap burger, quinoa and kale salad, shrimp and avo salad and fish tacos round out their offerings. It’s easy relatable American/Californian cuisine. I took a
the weekend, with shuffle board and gaming at the back bar. Kama`aina get 20 percent off, except at happy hour. Live music Fridays will feature the Easy this Friday, and this Valentine’s Day will have a Onesie/Pajama Singles Party. “We have been doing DJs on Fridays and Saturdays, and we’re going to bring in some live bands,” says Robb. “Lahaina used to be a hotbed for live music. It’s gone to the wayside. There’s no outlet for these guys to come play. So we’re hoping to launch a live music Fridays and have a live act on Fridays with a DJ on Saturdays. As we get into February and March, we want to do an industry night, and do some other things to keep it fresh. I was in Vegas for five years I opened the XS nightclubs. My state of the art JVL sound system is incredible–it’s loud but people can still stand here and have a conversation. I just want people to have fun.” ■ email@example.com + @jenrusso For more foodie news, visit: mauitime.com/food-drink

R U YO SPACE NOW
by Barry Wurst II
'Rings' Take the movie’s own advice and skip this one ★★★★★ Rated PG-13 / 102 Min.
he opening scene of Rings takes place on an airplane, as a young man is gripping his arm rest during a turbulent flight. An attractive young woman sitting next to him tells him not to worry. Instead of thanking her, he suddenly asks her if she’s seen a movie so horrible, “it will kill you if you watch it.” I thought he was asking her about Suicide Squad, but he’s actually referencing the events of the 2003 Gore Verbinski-directed The Ring (itself a solid remake of the Japanese horror film Ringu). Anyway, instead of hitting the flight attendant button and requesting a taser, the young girl humors the guy and listens to his monologue, intended to get her (and audiences too young to remember The Ring) up to speed. He explains that he came across the cursed video tape and managed to find a VCR to watch it. This was when I started laughing uncontrollably: where the heck did he find a VCR? It’s easier to track down a Nintendo Power Glove! From this point, allegedly “spooky” things happen aboard
the flight and it’s all very Snakes on a Plane absurd and kind of fun. The dopey start of Rings is rife with unintentional hilarity but this so-bad-it’s-good B-movie devolves into another dull, ugly horror movie about women being tortured in captivity. Johnny Galecki (looking like a morose Jack Black) stars as a college professor who knows the reason why watching the infamous videotape results in death and has a system to keep himself and other victims safe. Attractive newcomers Matilda Lutz and Alex Roe play a couple trying to solve the mystery of the long-haired, TV-set hopping Samara; let’s hope their careers survive. Galecki seems appropriately embarrassed to be here, while the often-brilliant Vincent D’Onofrio alarmingly does not. The logic of everything here is beyond sketchy. Although the “rules” of the tape are the same as in the original (you watch it, you get a creepy phone call and you die in seven days), characters are constantly re-watching it, as though it were the Zapruder film. Wouldn’t that mean multiple death sentences or the seven days reduced to a five day week? There’s also no mention of Naomi Watts’ character from the first two movies, though I
Hey, we warned you not to watch this movie
imagine Watts is grateful for this. We’re offered a brief glimpse of a Ring club, in which viewers of the tape hang out and partake in a loophole to keep them alive. It’s the most clever idea in the movie and it quickly sails by unexplored. As a commentary on uploading creepy YouTube videos, passing asexually transmitted disease or living in an age of fear, nothing sticks. The slight update in technology doesn’t fit with the antiquated concept of the mysterious tape. All of this was thoroughly and satisfactorily spoofed in Scary Movie 3. Another thing about that airliner-set sequence that opens the movie: it looks suspiciously like it used to be the end of the movie and has been reconfigured as the opener. Much of this seems like a collection
of re-tooled, half-considered scenes that only kind-of fit together. It’s no mystery why Rings has missed multiple release dates and was pushed out of last year’s Halloween release slot (an ominous sign for a horror movie). The filmmakers should have kept pushing it back until, Samara-style, the movie got dropped into the deep, dark well of the Wal-Mart $5 DVD bin. “Jump scares” are usually cheap and heightened by loud sound effects but here, we’re supposed to be startled by an umbrella opening. While the 2003 film was unsettling in its sustained intensity, this feels like a much-too-late Final Destination sequel. The message of Rings is oddly on point: if someone says there’s a horrible movie that will kill you if you watch it, just say no! ■

Sign Language AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18)
Life should start to feel significantly lusher this week. That’s a good thing after the kind of bare bones winter you’ve had. Enjoy your suddenly much more rich-feeling surroundings this week, but please don’t overindulge. All that abundance after the Spartan existence of your most recent chapter could make you sick. And the last thing you want is to be miserable because your life has gotten better. So go ahead and enjoy the improvements that have come your way– but go slow. Savor them slowly–and make them (and your enjoyment of them) last that much longer. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20)
You suck at making decisions to a timetable. So what? When you’re left to your own devices, this isn’t a problem. It’s only when you’re required to conform to somebody else’s schedule that you run into trouble. As hard as you try, you sometimes encounter an unavoidable, seemingly impossible deadline. Every Pisces needs a strategy for dealing with these situations effectively. I know some who simply flip a coin (a few times) and abide by whatever the result is, despite their own misgivings. They’ve recognized that they’d have misgivings–or at least mixed feelings–either way. What’s your tactic? Don’t have one? Work on that, this week. ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19)
Many Rams have trouble seeing long-term (and occasionally even short-term) projects through to fruition. They feel compelled to sample many different experiences, and move on to new ones quickly. This is absolutely fine–as long as it doesn’t become a lifelong habit. Members of your tribe are usually very successful, once they’ve learned to rein in that intense (but ever-shifting) focus. The ones who learn to stay excited long after the honeymoon glow has faded are the ones who get rich, married, and famous. The ones who don’t–well they don’t get much of anywhere. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20)
Taureans rarely seek the easy way out. You don’t often shrink from unpleasant realities, or hesitate to work your way out of a hole. That’s why when there’s a simple route to success, absolution, or happiness, you don’t trust it–frequently you don’t even notice it! Of course, there’s no such thing as a free ride, so I don’t expect you to fall for any of the sucker trips that nail some of the more naïve signs. However, keep your eyes peeled for a realistic shortcut this week, because one is very likely to present itself. I know I’m fond of reminding people that the journey is more important than the destination, and I still stand by that. But I also believe that a good journey isn’t necessarily the one that takes the longest way around.
Take things at face value–without imbuing them with hidden meanings–or don’t take them at all. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22)
You really can’t keep a good Leo down. Now that you’re free of the dampening influences of some of those who were holding you back (mostly without meaning to, to be fair), you can go ahead and thrive in ways you haven’t been able to in many months. Concentrate on rediscovering the parts of yourself that you’d nearly forgotten about, and certainly haven’t–in recent memory– expressed. Remember what’s great about you? I’ll give you a hint. One of the things I admire about Leos is their bold, unabashed, honest directness. You used to say shit most other signs just don’t have the guts to say. Isn’t it time you started again?
GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20)
CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22)
The convoluted, exhausting hoops you make others jump through are nothing compared to the obstacle courses you make yourself suffer. Why do you do this to us and to yourself? Your eagerness to leap to concrete conclusions based on a broad spectrum of ever-shifting emotions only makes life more unpleasant for you and everyone. “Because of this and that and this, it means they don’t love me.” Shit like that, whether it’s “true” or not (and it’s probably not), isn’t the least bit helpful and only makes it more likely that you’ll manifest the scenario that you dread. Please keep that in mind this week.

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22)
When I encounter someone who’s gung-ho to tear astrology a new bumhole with their well-honed skepticism, I pop their philosophical hard-on by cheerfully agreeing it’s all bullshit. When I meet someone more open-minded, however, I’m usually happy to indulge their curiosity and even share whatever advice or guidance I can come up with. I know you tend to trust your own instincts over others’ insights, but this week I suggest you sheathe your cynicism; it’s not currently doing you any good. You need someone who’s objective to help you with this one–preferably a stranger. If you ask nicely, they might give you the advice and guidance you need.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22)
You’ve been feeling as out of place lately as a fashionista trying to buy an outfit in an auto parts store. You’ve had plenty of resources, but nothing to spend them on. Luckily, this week you should find yourself more in your familiar element. That doesn’t mean you should go on a spending spree, though. Sure, treat yo’self. But don’t go crazy. There are plenty of rainy days ahead, so keep something aside so you’re able to get yourself a new umbrella when they hit. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21)
If you give a dog treats all the time, they cease to be treats, really. They come to expect them, and they’re suddenly more likely to be a source of disappointment (when they don’t get one) than pleasure. That’s not to say they don’t enjoy them every time you offer one, but they’re no longer quite so special. You see where I’m going with this, right? This is not, of course, a reason to start withholding (from yourself or anyone) the basic pleasures of your existence. But choose at least one special thing that you’ll strive to keep that way, and not ruin with overindulgence. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21)
You’re gorgeous, darling. You’ve been lovely all along–only this week people are more likely to actually notice. That ought to feel good after feeling more or less invisible the last few months. Don’t let it go to your head, though; part of the reason people are looking at you with a new eye is because of the kind of humility or modesty you’ve acquired during this last chapter. Don’t start showing off now. Quiet confidence is the way. Go ahead and bask in this overdue spotlight of attention, but please resist the urge to perform in it.

Yeah, you could just wipe your hands of the whole thing and walk away. It doesn’t technically have anything to do with you, after all. But it’s happening in your neighborhood, so to speak. Most of the time, you’re right– you’d be better off leaving well enough alone. But in this case you actually have the power to do something about a situation–if not make it right, at least improve it. I confess, I buy into that whole “with power comes responsibility” thing, so if I were in your shoes, I’d feel some kind of obligation to try. Don’t you? CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19)
It’s not that there aren’t many layers to you; it’s that you’ve got them so well compartmentalized and under control–each one emerges when it’s appropriate–that most people think of you as an incredibly consistent, excessively-focused, and slightly boring person. They don’t get to see all the other sides of you–except maybe this week, when it might be in your best interest to allow some cracks, at least, to appear in the façade. Hell, while you’re at it, just rip off your business suit, stripper-style, and show off what you’ve got underneath. I mean, if you’re going to do it, why not do it with some kind of flair?
