LettersTotheEditor sticking her neck out I attended the recent Committee of the Whole meeting where the matter of approving legal representation for Council Member Joanne Johnson was discussed. I applaud the efforts of Council Members who seek to resolve this matter. It is distressing to me and many others that a public official like Ms. Johnson, who has a strong sense of ethical values and no ties to big money interests, is being cited for providing information to an important decisionmaking body. If one attends County Council, Board and Commission meetings on a regular basis, it is apparent that all are greatly benefited by access to accurate, in-depth information. It it also apparent that such information is often lacking. In fact, this lack has led to poorly-informed decisions being challenged, resulting in costly legal battles. Most citizens would probably agree that when the “right hand doesn’t know what the left hand” is doing, government agencies are not efficiently serving the public. When Council Members Kane and Tavares addressed the Water Board recently, they were helping to bridge that gap. Joanne Johnson stuck her neck out to insure that Planning Commission members and the public weren’t left in the dark about actions taken by other county departments. As a Council Member she has no “power” over decisions the Planning Commission will

make in reviewing Special Management Area (SMA) permits. They are final and not subject to Council review. She had nothing to gain financially. Her only purpose was to provide information. She is willing to have all alleged “violations” she is accused of discussed openly. We must ask the question: who benefits from having Joanne subject to an ethics charge cloaked in innuendo and secrecy during an important election year? My guess: Follow the money.

State Should Secede Maui Candidate for Governor Says

‘We need to govern ourselves,’ Kaui Hill aka Bu La’ia says In the contest to see who will be Hawaii’s next governor, Kaui Hill will be a longshot for sure. Hill, 36, doesn’t have as much as money as his Democrat and Republican opponents, but he thinks his message of Hawaiian sovereignty will resonate with ­voters. Hill has run for governor before, sort of. In 1994, he borrowed his brother’s drivers license and entered the governor’s race as Bu La’ia. Drivers license aside, at 28, Hill wasn’t old enough to be governor, as 30 is the minimum age, and he was kicked out of the race. SOVEREIGN HAWAII – Kaui Hill of Haiku says if he is Hill, a part-time professional elected governor, he will work to see that Hawaii is reccomedian, has a day job as a geoognized as a sovereign nation.

OPINIONS By Travis Henderson

The Ageless Wonders I heard a good joke the other day, thought you might like it. What’s the best thing about getting old? -You don’t have to worry about dying young. Pretty mean, I know, but since the friend who told me heard it from an old guy, we figured it was okay. Anyways, it got me to thinking. We’ve all heard life referred to as “the game of life” at one point or another. What if this game was broken down into quarters, like a football game? Additionally, there is cusp a between the second and third quarters, where they combine, but more on that later. The first quarter is from ages 1-25. This is when you think you’re on top of the world and that everything revolves around you. In a sense, this is true because the world caters to its young people. Except for places like rural China, the Phillipines, etc. There, the sweatshops cater to the young people, if you consider $.05 an hour working in a hell-hole “catering”. But the rest of the world put their children on pedestals. And for good reason, because children are innocent as well as being responsible for carrying the future on their shoulders. In the first quarter you dominate the landscape, and you can’t even imagine what you’ll look like when you’re 40 because 40 is, like, old. Then you reach the 2nd Quarter, from 26-50. All of a sudden, you’re still having a hard time imagining what you’ll look like at 40 but now you realize you’re going to find out, soon. All of a sudden, people don’t look at your youthful indiscretions and say things like, “Oh don’t worry, you’ll grow out of it”, or “you should do it, especially why you’re still young.” Now they say things like “So, are you thinking about getting married and having kids soon?” Suddenly, the credit card bills you’re still paying off from stuff you did 4-5 years ago are getting a little old. Middle age is here and dammit if you wish you hadn’t started preparing sooner. The latter half of the 2nd Quarter and

Get Listed with Kim!

the first part of the 3rd Quarter are the cusp I was talking about. Some people refer to this as the “mid-life crisis”, which implies aging men buying Harley’s in an effort to recapture their youthful carelessness. This is usually done because they finally realize that, while the brashness of their first youth was a result of naivete regarding life’s length, this second wave of youthful brashness is a result of recognizing that “you know what, life really isn’t that long so you’re damned right I’m gonna live it up.” It’s also a result of the shock they felt when the 1st Quarter ended and the 3rd Quarter loomed large and maybe they could just make one last ditch attempt to grab a piece of that youth before it disappeared out of sight. But it doesn’t work and the first part of the 3rd Quarter is you finally letting go of the 1st Quarter. So you’re now in the 51-75 range. Youth is long gone. You know this because you question everything today’s youth is doing and you find it increasingly sad/scary/elating that you are responsible for creating this mess. The senses slow, making things seem a little faster and louder. The 4th Quarter is a definite possibility and, while scary at times, also a little exciting to finally come to terms with the eternal question: what is at the end of the rainbow? It’s the 4th Quarter, and now is the time you are either enjoying the fruits of your labors or you’re just wondering where the hell that rotten fruit smell is coming from. Is it your britches? Nah, couldn’t be, you haven’t soiled those in two weeks. Is it your fridge? Nope. Only thing in there is the box of jello pudding you bought when you lost your dentures and any subsequent desire, or ability, to eat hard food. But it doesn’t matter because the fat lady is warming up (or is that your wife yelling at you to get off the cat’s tail?), the vultures are circling, and you know what, that’s okay.

Vacation Rentals:

Vibrant part of local economy or illegal scofflaws? Do vacation rentals contribute to shortage of affordable rental housing? Or are their white owners victims of local ‘racism’ and unworkable county rules? —By Don Gronning How you see the problem of non-permitted vacation rentals depends on where you sit. If you are a property manager who was handed a search warrant and had your vacation rental property searched by police and zoning inspectors, you would see it one way. You would probably agree this was an intimidating and heavy-handed way to enforce zoning law. But if you are someone who needs affordable rental housing, chances are you see things differently. You’ve seen the number of vacation rentals skyrocket at the same time affordable, long-term rentals are becoming scarcer. You might wonder if there is a connection. After all, it certainly seems more profitable to rent to visitors for, say $85 a night, than it is to rent the same property for $800 a month to a long-term tenant. You might think those $800 monthly rentals were turned into $85-a-night vacation rentals. The problem of these mostly non-permitted rentals is coming to a head with this election year. The county started cracking down on some vacation rentals, many of whom have been in business, and paying state General Excise Tax (GET) and Transient Accommodations Tax (TAT) for years. Those connected with the industry started looking to their elected officials for relief. They found a sympathetic ear with council member and mayoral candidate Alan Arakawa. He chairs the county’s Land Use Committee, which took public testimony July 1st and 3rd, on the issue of vacation rentals. Many said the current process to become a legal vacation rental is unduly expensive and complicated. They said county inspectors were selectively enforcing the law, targeting industry representatives. While the county said enforcement was complaint driven, county officials acknowledged that complaints could be anonymous and were sometimes filed by competitors. Other people said county inspectors were rude and intimidating. Some said they detected racist overtones. Arakawa says the use of search warrants and intimidation is not the way to resolve the issue of illegal vacation rentals, which

are essentially code violations. “It’s not a criminal act where people are going around shooting people,” said Arakawa. “It’s very white collar.” Jail time for code violations Zoning code violations may be prosecuted criminally under Title 19, Article V of the Maui County Code (19.530.020), the law cited in one of the search warrants. This law is punishable by fines up to $1,000 and imprisonment or community service. If you commit enough violations, you can get up to 30 days in jail. After a conviction for a first violation, “… each further day of violation shall constitute a separate offense if the violation is a continuance of the subject of the first conviction,” according to Maui County Code. Arakawa says the committee has been trying to work with Mayor James “Kimo” Apana’s administration to resolve the problem of illegal vacation rentals, as well as addressing complaints Arakawa has received about overzealous inspectors. “One complaint we’ve heard is about ethnic remarks,” said Arakawa. “That’s intolerable.” Arakawa says the problem is Apana’s administration. The Planning Department’s Zoning Administrative and Enforcement Division polices the vacation rentals, and Planning Director John Min answers to Apana. Apana and Arakawa will face each other in the non-partisan mayor’s race this year. When they faced each other in 1998, Apana, the Democrat, beat Arakawa, the Republican, in a close election. Arakawa says they are still awaiting a study from Min on the impact of vacation rentals on affordable housing. The study was due in November 2001, he says. Without that study, Arakawa says his instinct tells him that vacation rentals do not take away from long-term, affordable rentals. “Most are upscale and would not be affordable,” he says. “One of the things we may see out of this is a conversion to longterm rentals, but at higher levels.” Number of VRs unknown, could be thousands While it is apparent the number of vaca-

tion rentals has exploded in recent years, nobody really knows how many there are. “We estimate that there are about 1,000 to 1,500 vacation rental properties (not including condos) on Maui with 3,000 to 5,000 total bedrooms,” said William Guy Fisher, president of the Maui Vacation Rental Association (MVRA), in a letter to Apana June 17th. In that same letter, he wrote that there is no longer a long-term rental housing shortage on Maui. Fisher said the number of daily newspaper classified ads for longterm rentals averaged about 100 per week during the first few months of 2001; a time, he says, when there was a shortage. But this shortage is not caused by vacation rentals, he says. Fisher estimates only 100-150 vacation rentals could be converted to affordable long-term rentals. “However, in the last few months they have been averaging about 300 a week,” he wrote. While there is more rental housing, Fisher agrees that there is a shortage of affordable rentals. He says the June 2, 2002 Maui News had 302 total ads but only 44 with rents less than $800. Some have left because of housing costs Many people think vacation rentals are making affordable housing more difficult to obtain and even forces people who were born here to leave. “If we continue to get more vacation rentals out there in country areas, where will that leave us, as local people?” Rodney Killborn asked the committee during public testimony July 1st. He said people who live here have been forced to leave because of high housing costs. “Where are they today? They’re not here,” he said. Killborn said many people who were born and raised here are not making the kind of money that the people who come to Maui to buy vacation rentals do. “We cannot compete with your income,” he said, addressing the vacation rental supporters in the audience at the committee meeting. Killborn said vacation rentals were taking affordable housing off the market. He points out that a mainland investor is buying three houses in Rice Camp for $109,000 each, and long-term tenants there have to move.

“My friends who live there pay about $800 or so rent. They have to leave and find another place. They may have to move somewhere out of Haiku. That’s what we’re facing,” Killborn said. Problem complex The vacation rental controversy has many dimensions. The county has a bed and breakfast ordinance that could and should be used for many small vacation rentals. But there hasn’t been a stampede to “get legal.” There are currently only 22 B&Bs with valid permits, according to documents from the Planning Department. One reason may be that they are not permitted in agricultural districts. But some people testified before Arakawa’s committee that getting the permit was fairly easy and inexpensive. Penny Weigel has a permitted B&B in Lahaina. She said she built her house specifically to be a bed and breakfast and she didn’t find the process to get a permit difficult or expensive. However Anjule DeSure, who has a permitted temporary vacation rental in Haiku, says she saw her insurance premiums increase $3,000 after she became legal. “Getting legal didn’t reward me, it penalized me,” she told the committee. Her place rents for $490-665 per week and is proof that vacation rentals and B&Bs are not the same. DeSure says two years ago her neighbor built a huge six-bedroom, seven-bath “structure,” along with a two-bedroom, two-bath cottage. She says it was never used as a family dwelling and was built specifically as a vacation rental, renting for about $6,000 a week. “The guests at this unsupervised mini resort often play loud music and party around the pool area at all hours,” she told the committee. She filed a formal complaint. That resulted in the owner being served with three violations by the county, but he continued to rent until he sold the place in March to another absentee landlord. The new owner is also doing vacation rentals, she said. Equitable property taxes, assessments


Another dimension is the issue of equitable property taxes. Hotel and resorts pay $8.30 per $1,000 assessed valuation. The county collects $4.93 per $1,000 from vacation rentals. Madelyn D’Enbeau wrote a memo to council member Wayne Nishiki in March 1999 in which she pointed out the importance of proper tax classifications of vacation rentals in residential areas. D’Enbeau, an attorney, now works in the office of Corporation Counsel. She wrote that vacation rentals compete directly with hotel and resort accommodations and should be taxed at the same rate to prevent unfair competition. Because vacation rentals generate more income than properties that are used as residences, they command higher sale prices. These enhanced sale prices cause unfair increases in the assessments of neighboring properties, she wrote. Arakawa disagrees that vacation rentals compete with hotels and resorts. He says they are after completely different customers. But he would like to see vacation rental properties taxed at the same rate as hotels and resorts. “The county is losing money,” said Arakawa. “We want to bring (vacation rentals) up to hotel rates.” The time-share condos were reclassified to the hotel resort category in 1997 and the county raised $300,000 in revenue the next fiscal year. The MVRA is on record in favor of vacation rentals paying higher property taxes. In his June 17th letter to Apana, Fisher writes that, “We continue to recommend that licensed vacation rental businesses pay a higher property tax rate for buildings which are being used for vacation rentals.” Fisher also proposed a separate tax category for vacation rentals, so that homeowners would not be penalized by higher assessments from vacation rentals that D’Enbeau mentioned. There are other factors to consider. Vacation rentals and bed and breakfasts are not the same. For instance, B&Bs must be owner occupied, while vacation rentals are often owned by absentee landlords. Another twist is that many vacation rentals and B&Bs are essentially home occupations or businesses, some of which are not permitted in residential or agriculturally zoned lands. They are among many

other businesses operated from homes throughout the county, most of which are also in violation of zoning laws. County law trumped by state landlord tenant act? Finally, at least one attorney thinks the county ordinance limiting how long you rent your home may not be valid. The county says if you rent your place for less than 180 days, it is a not a long-term rental.

The state landlord tenant act says that a landlord and tenant may agree to any length of time for rental, and state law trumps county law, says attorney Sanford Langa. “Where as here the state, by general law, has provided that landlord and tenant can agree to any length of term, the county cannot validly say otherwise,” wrote Langa on February 8th. The Land Use Committee passed a resolution that urges the county to back off, to “hold in abeyance enforcement actions relating only to non-possession of a valid land use permit until the Council enacts a new ordinance to permit and license vacation rentals.” The resolution, entitled “Urging the Administration to Reassess Its Enforcement Practices With Respect to Vacation Rentals” is an advisory only and expected to pass when the full Maui County Council takes it up August 2nd. It will take considerably longer to enact an ordinance to change county law, says council member Charmaine Tavares. The vacation rental controversy won’t be resolved soon, she predicts. “Not sooner than a year and certainly not by the end of this year,” she says. It will take four to six months to get community input and then any ordinance would need to go before all three of the county’s planning commissions for approval, since it would involve land use. “It’s going to take a while.”

Despite a warning label reading “Do not use indoors because of flammability” on its carpet adhesive, the Para-Chem company was ordered by a jury in Akron, Ohio, in July to pay $8 million to two professional installers who were severely burned in an explosion when they tried to use the product indoors. One juror told the Akron Beacon Journal that he and his colleagues felt the warning did not go far enough in convincing the installers not to use the product indoors. A whole class of New Bedford, Mass., middle-school students was recommended for blood tests in July after officials learned that, in May 2001, a now-retired seventh-grade science teacher had pricked the ­fingers of about two dozen of the students to make sample blood slides, using the same needle (though he wiped it with alcohol between uses). Officials thought the risk of infection was low but had no explanation how a veteran science teacher could stray so far from contemporary blood-safety ­procedures.

Latest Astonishing Research A paper by psychologist Michel Lariviere for Correctional Services of Canada concluded that most guards don’t respect inmates (which inhibits rehabilitation efforts) (May). A $4 million study by University of Buffalo Research Institute on Addictions revealed that employees are much more likely to call in sick if they have drunk alcohol the night before (May). A Harvard School of Public Health survey found that people report more noise and other disruptions in bingedrinking college neighborhoods than in other neighborhoods (July). An Iowa State University study found that TV viewers had a harder time noticing the commercials on shows containing explicit sex than on other types of shows (June).

Trouble Up Ahead The owners of Los Angeles’ Westwood Village Memorial Park (resting place of Marilyn Monroe, Dean Martin and Frank Zappa) have asked the county to allow them to build a 463-casket mausoleum on ­formerly open space in the park that is very close to residential property, thus potentially disturbing both neighbors worried about spirits in their back yards and solemn park visitors, who may be exposed to screaming children and barbecue smoke. (And in June, bowing to strong opposition, the operators of Dublin, Ireland’s most famous cemetery (Glasnevin) withdrew a proposal to add income by building 11 luxury townhouses on its grounds.) Former Broward County (Fla.) librarian William Coday’s online personal ad touts his multilingualism, world travels, compassion, and love of Keats and baroque music. The ad does not mention that he was convicted of murdering his 1978 and 1997 girlfriends, both with hammers, and that he is in jail awaiting a jury’s decision whether he gets

death for the latter crime.

Family Values Leslie Collard, 42, arrested in May in Providence, R.I., for offering an undercover officer a tandem prostitution deal that included her 19-year-old daughter, was asked before the arrest if that meant the mother and daughter would serve him at the same time. “No,” she said (according to the officer), “I have morals, because she is my daughter. My daughter will do you first.” Pull Their Parenting Licenses: David and Guadalupe Mata were arrested for allegedly chaining their 21-year-old daughter face up on her bed, to keep her away from the married man she had been seeing (Fullerton, Calif., July). A mother and stepfather were charged with duct-taping her 12-year-old son to a lawn chair so he would get sunburned as punishment for sassing her (Hamilton, Ohio, May). Gary and Kathleen Rabatin and their teen-age kids were charged with possession of marijuana, with the parents admitting pride that the kids smoke at home rather than on the street (and dope was found in every room in their house) (Levittown, Pa., June). Sedrick Lamont Curtis, 28, and Shakima Lewis, 25, were charged with forcing their adolescent kids into sex shows in their home, at which they charged clients $10 to watch (Gary, Ind., May)

Cliches Come to Life According to an Agence France-Presse report of a United Nations officials’ meeting with Zimbabwe’s president Robert Mugabe in April (concerning how undemocratic the country’s last election was), Mugabe allegedly exploded when scolded by a U.S. representative: “Well,” said Mugabe, “I don’t think George Bush won the U.S. election, but I accept (it).” And in Lumberton, N.J., in July, Michael J. Devine, 36, captured in a stolen truck after a police chase, denied he was trying to escape; he said that he couldn’t stop because the truck contained a bomb that would explode if his speed dropped below 55 mph.

Also, in the Last Month ... A Muslim housewife in Florida filed a lawsuit after the state revoked her driver’s license because she insisted that her identification photo reveal only her eyes (because of her niqab veil) (Winter Park, Fla.). A 19-year-old man fatally overconsumed in a contest to see who could eat the most salt (Tamluk, India). A 20-year-old man was arrested after making 1,100 calls to 911 over a two-day period, attributing his behavior simply to boredom (Gainesville, Fla.). A court in Iran denied Mohammad Khordadian travel privileges for 10 years because he formerly taught Irandisapproved dance lessons while living in Los Angeles (Tehran).

at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center – July 25 Latin rhythms heat up the stage at the MACC when Celia Cruz and her 12-piece band, Yari Moré y Su Orquestra, appear at the Castle Theater on Thursday, July 25th . Since moving to the United States in 1960, Celia and her brand of vibrant music have continued to reach out to generations of people. “Afro-Cuban music is the root of today’s Salsa…It is a source of pride, of ­happiness, of being alive. It is what I bring to the people.” Celia recorded eight albums with Tito Puente and went on to team with Johnny Pacheco, Willy Colon, and later, the Fania All-Stars. She has been the recipient of a multitude of musical awards from ­different countries, including a Grammy in 1989. She not only has a star on Hollywood Boulevard, but also an entire street, “Celia Cruz Way”, in Miami. She has been featured in ten movies, such as “Salsa” and “The Mambo Kings,” along with performing on soundtracks for “Something Wild” and “Invasion U.S.A.”. In 1994, Celia was a proud recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts to put alongside her three honorary doctorate degrees received from Yale, Florida International University and the University of Miami. At 82, Celia’s incomparable style is still

DiningListings Central Maui

Meals with a hint of tourism as well as localism I find myself eating to the point in which I can’t breathe, walk and function properly. It’s a quick routine: a fork swoops down, gathers too much food for the fork to handle and then it is shoved into my mouth and it is half chewed, half forced down my mouth. My brain is telling me to hurry up and eat for the fear that my craving for something in my mouth will not be satisfied. It’s called an oral ­fixation. Ever since I was little my ­parents have told me, “Slow down Christy! You’re not going to a fire!” Their constant nagging at the breakfast, lunch and dinner table didn’t do a bit of good as I entered my twenties. With their nagging in mind, I found myself walking down Front Street with an appetite as big as New York City. My stomach was growling and I could feel myself shaking from the lack of food. Of course, I had just eaten two hours before my excursion downtown. Just past Kimo’s, I felt a magnetic force draw me into the Ocean Front Marketplace. Walking past knickknacks and jewelry, I saw a sign that said Café O’Lei. Just then, hosts of angels were singing “Halleluiah”, and chills were sent down my spine. As I was seated on the second floor, I could see Baby Beach to my right, and to my left the Lahaina Harbor was beckoning small and large boats to come in for a visit. The lunch menu has an assortment of healthy, but hearty meals. With a taro salad sitting in front of me, my fork went to work. Crumbled blue cheese, bits of taro and squash were demolished by my teeth. Before I knew it, a crab club with a side of Caesar salad sat next to my taro salad. I pushed the salad aside and started in on the club. Snowcrab salad with crisp bacon, Kula

South Maui

greens, tomatoes and avocado on foccacia bread were gone before I could count the black crabs crawling on the sea wall. I wasn’t full and my sick eating cycle had just begun. I needed to eat something from the ­dinner menu. The grilled, marinated jumbo shrimp and the Togarashi-seared Ahi begged me to eat them. When they were put on the table, I couldn’t even bring myself to eat because the food looked too beautiful on the plate. But I grabbed my fork and ate and ate and ate. I could feel my stomach bulging out of my denim skirt. Dessert was on the way out and I had to belch in order to fit it in. Once the belch passed, I slowly ate a pineapple upside-down cake with a scoop of ice cream. My sick cycle finally came to an end. I came. I saw. I ate and ate and ate. Café O’Lei satisfied my oral fixation and I was ready to walk it off on Front Street. Well, I mean wobble down Front Street. Cafe O’Lei has four locations. Lunch is served from 10:30 AM till 4:30 PM.

A Smelting Incident

Austin Powers Looses Steam In Third Installment Austin Powers In Goldmember – Three Stars Labored and teeming with half-hearted jokes, this third installment in the Austin Powers franchise falls wide of the giddy mark that “The Spy Who Shagged Me” hit three years ago. Mike Myers returns to his infectious “Yeah Baby” antics of playing multiple characters Dr. Evil, Fat Bastard, Austin Powers and, this time, a Dutch villain named Johann van der Smut as the title character “Goldmember.” Yet the fiendish Gold­member is the weakest personality in the bunch, with Dr. Evil and Fat Bastard never rising to the lofty comic moments they enjoyed in the last movie. Michael Caine gets a much-deserved heavy helping of screen time, but Destiny’s Child’s Beyonce Knowles lacks the abundant comic savoir-faire to bring her Blaxploitationinspired character Foxxy Cleopatra to life. Still, she does have the best line in the movie when she tells Austin, “You have the right to remain sexy, sugar.” “Austin Powers In Goldmember” starts off with a “Mission Impossible 2” inspired opening action sequence that turns comic thrills into delightful surprise as characters reveal themselves to be actors portraying the Austin Powers crew for a new movie. There are lots

L ive

of eye-popping cameos that arrive as firework displays of entertainment glamour. It seems that in Austin’s world, Hollywood has caught onto his shtick and is making a movie called “Austinpussy” with more than a few Oscarwinning actors playing the parts of our favorite shagadelic troop. But the sequence sets an impossibly high watermark that the rest of the movie never quite matches. Most disappointing are the scenes where Fat Bastard appears. You can’t help but think back to the infamous “get in my belly” scene from “The Spy Who Shagged Me” in which the revolting Scottsman sexually taunted a doe-eyed and disgusted Heather Graham in bed. That scene sticks in one’s memory as a groaning example of brilliantly crude comedy springing from context and innuendo. But in “Goldmember,” the closest we get to Fat Bastard’s outré humor is hearing him describe the especially pungent bouquet of his own flatulence to Austin and Foxxy. The humor never boils over partially because Austin and Foxxy’s reactions don’t quite fit the appropriate level of repugnance and­ ­desperation that Fat Bastard should engender with his noxious odors and less-than-­

Verne Troyer (Mini-Me) and Mike Myers (Dr. Evil) in Goldmember (Austin Powers 3) eloquent verbal descriptions. In the plot, criminal mastermind Gold­ member has kidnapped Austin’s dad Nigel Powers (Michael Caine), sending our man Austin to visit an imprisoned Dr. Evil for clues. A time trip back to 1975 finds Austin snooping around at Studio 69 where Goldmember — who lost his tallywhacker in a smelting accident — holds court by rollerskating around the club in tight gold shorts. Austin hooks up with his old flame Foxxy and brings her back to the future to bust up an evil plan for global destruction — codenamed ‘Preparation H’ — cooked up between Goldmember and the recently escaped Dr. Evil and Mini-Me. The star of the show is still Dr. Evil, and Myers has perfected that character’s various charms to a point where he’s not so pernicious anymore. It’s revealed late in the story that Austin and Dr. Evil are actually blood brothers and sons to Nigel Powers. This comes after Dr. Evil has embraced his son Scott (Seth Green) into the fold after rejecting Mini-Me (Verne J. Troyer) as his right-hand man. But the result of all this pseudo affectionate plotting is that Austin Powers loses a here-to-fore-worthy adversary. Austin still seeks approval from his old dad who busies himself shagging women four at a time. Even when the Queen knights Austin, Nigel humiliates his swinging spy son by not attending the ceremony. Caine’s appearance in “Gold­

member” serves as a shining endorsement of the series by the same actor whose ’60 films like “Get Carter” inform much of the set-up for Austin Powers’ character and environment. The movie does have a few sight gags and set-ups that are notably shocking for the weird visceral tingle they inspire. Fred Savage (“The Wonder Years”) plays ‘Number Three,’ a mole reporting to Austin with the biggest hairy mole on his face that you will likely ever see in such close-up detail on the big screen. The mole’s mole, as it were, sends Austin into hilarious squirming fits punctuated by his overuse of the word ‘mole.’ This, along with a peeing fountain scene, makes for some of the movie’s more raucous moments. Mike Myers is a comic genius who doesn’t get out enough. There’s a impression to “Goldmember” that the film’s creator is attempting to bottle up his precious humorous commodity so as not to devalue its worth. But some of Myers’ ‘looseness’ gets lost in the exchange, and it’s that very quality that is most necessary to his brand of comedy. Just as with Tom Green’s infectious humor, Myers needs to be breaking molds rather than adhering to them. The future success of the Austin Powers franchise will rest on Myers’ ability to, in some measure, throw out everything he has done before with his own preconceptions of these far-out and fabulous characters.

TheAdvicegoddess By Amy Alkon

Sexual Heeling My girlfriend and I have been together for two years, and we’re very much in love. I have to get dressed up for work, but she works in a more relaxed environment and prefers to dress casually. She dresses very casually at home, too. The problem is, I really like it when she dresses up — especially in high heels. I’ve bought her sexy shoes and lingerie, but in the entire time we’ve been together, she’s dressed up for me maybe eight times. I’ve told her repeatedly that all she has to do to put a smile on my face is strap on a pair of high heels and strut past me. She says she loves my reaction when she wears them, but she considers herself “sexy enough,” and wonders whether maybe something is wrong with me. I’m starting to feel ­sexually frustrated and more than a little worried about our long-term potential. How can I help her see my side? —Over The Pump Women in manhunt mode generally favor itsy-bitsy dresses and stilettos that should come with airsickness bags over ensembles that scream, “I could be called out to plow the fields at any moment.” It’s landing a man that causes all the trouble. Not for all women. The smart ones stick relatively close to their original, man-grabbing fashion statements. The not-so-smart ones edit theirs from “sexpot” to “stock pot” the moment they catch a whiff of commitment in the air. Naturally, such slinky attire calls for equally alluring footgear, like Birkenstocks (which must be short for “Birthcontrolstocks,” since they look like THE shoe to wear when you’re lusting for a long night of really great... posture). Your girlfriend, like too many women, seems to have a rather tenuous grasp on the difference between “comfortably dressed” and “too comfortably dressed.” Do point out that you’re not asking her to jog, garden, and scale sheer rock face in four-inch, jeweled, feathered Manolo’s. You’d be elated if she simply took occasional steps (strappy ones; preferably while wearing some little lace nothing-or-other) to keep you hot for her; in turn, helping you keep your relationship from failing the test of time. (Perverted freak that you are, you find sex with her more exciting when she looks more like a stripper than a Teamster. Shocking ...simply shocking.) Assuming that you aren’t breaking into shoe stores after hours to watch the high-heeled pumps gathering dust on the shelves, your girlfriend should shelve her notion that your little shoe thing is an indication that you don’t find her “sexy enough.” Reassure her that the shoes aren’t the entree; just a fashion condiment — one you’re campaigning to see on her — not on her best friend or the girl next door. If she continues to put her foot down, consider it your cue to point your feet toward the door...leaving her free to find somebody she’s more sexually compatible with; say, a guy whose secret fantasies involve women shuffling around his living room in shoes appropriate for picking lettuce.

Lunar Cycles: New Moon - 8 August, 9:16am at 16 Leo 04. Full Moon - 22 August at 12:30pm at 29 Aquarius 39. ARIES [Mar. 20 - Apr. 19] - Putting your mind to work on whatever you want will be a natural thing at this time. You may get unique messages about your childhood and how decisions you made then have created today’s career situations. Ask for the path to resolution and you’ll release them. TAURUS [Apr. 19 - May 20] - Those of you who are sensitive to changes in the environment can tell that there will be a move coming your way. Perhaps changing your home to a new area, and no area is blocked from your consideration. Creative inspiration comes at unusual times, so roll with it.

FEATURING •FISH, CHICKEN, STEAK, SHRIMP, & TOFU KABOBS! •FRESH FISH SPECIALS!

GEMINI [May 20 - June 21] - With your ruler meeting Mars in its annual visit, you may feel primed to leap tall buildings with a single bound. Also, your mental muscle may be wanting to be flexed with something new and challenging. Perhaps now is the time to finish a project you’ve delayed?

•DAILY HOMEMADE SOUPS! •AWARD WINNING CAESAR Now Delivering in LahainaTown (FREE on Front Street) Lahaina Market Place corner of Lahainaluna & Front Street

CANCER [June 21 - July 22] - With the energy of several planets in your house of prosperity and moveable possessions, you’re focusing on what truly supports you. Throwing out old thoughts, emotions and physical things is a truly good project at this time.

661–9999

LEO [July 22 - Aug. 22] - You can set the upcoming year’s focus at this time. Know that you may be a tad more aggressive than usual and that also applies to your mind and the thoughts therein. Remember to be non-judgmental, keep your sense of humor, and be generous with all, including yourself. VIRGO [Aug. 23 - Sept. 22] - Now you’re able to see and hear clearly what is going on in your life based on your analytical and uncontrolled subconscious mind. Issues will manifest directly in your body, so study

Humorous Humorous --

By Eliza Bassett 808–573–3039

LIBRA [Sept. 22 - Oct. 22] - Your career shifts from individual success to being part of a team that supports and improves the community you live in. Allow nurturing friends to introduce you to new foods and new ways of relationship that have not occurred to you before. SCORPIO [Oct. 22 - Nov. 22] - With the conjunction of Mercury and Mars in your career house, your mind is ready to commit to the upcoming energy of success and prosperity. You can feel it even if everyone else is lost. You know they never are attuned to you... rebirth yourself, soar free. SAGITTARIUS [Nov. 22 - Dec. 20] - Your mind may be alive with new thoughts and philosophies that inspire you to deeply pursue them. Some may be just what you’ve been seeking as they put you on a new path in your life. Relationships require balance between work and home. CAPRICORN [Dec. 21 - Jan. 19] - You may find yourself more aggressive with those you love if they do not measure up to your expectations as well as what you’ve agreed to. Make sure that your agreements are still valid and not based upon remnants of your childhood training. AQUARIUS [Jan. 19 - Feb. 18] - The next year will see a powerful polarity between your self and your relationships of all kinds. Set an intention as to what you’d like to be doing during the next year. Remember to be humorous, watch your judgments, and learn something new every day. PISCES [Feb. 18 - Mar. 20] - One thing you know is that how you think about the world, your health and body, does happen. This is an important time to pay attention to clues from your community, and what is important to them. You are sensitive to their thoughts and emotions.
