LETTERSTOTHEEDITOR ALOHA, I am writing in response to an article that stated that the mother of the 18 yr old who drowned on Oahu due to his ignorance, wants to put a grate over the blowhole. How dare she!!! She is also suing the county and city of Honolulu, trying to find blame for the incident that took her son’s life. Are you kidding me?! From what I’ve heard, he was told by observers not to do it, and there are signs posted telling people to stay back from the hole. He was an 18 yr old man who made a terrible decision, and he paid for it with his life. Altering nature is not going to change that, nor is it going to protect the idiots of this world from hurting themselves. There are animals who know not to go near an opening in the earth where the ocean pushes itself seems this man is not so smart. Shark signs, grates over blowholes...these things are not necessary, common sense is. If you go to the jungle and encounter a lion, who do you sue? This mother is looking for someone, anyone to blame for her son’s death. She should just accept the fact that he made a very dumb decision, and let the incident itself be the legacy to keep others from repeating it. A grate is not the answer to the real problem...people. Artiex - via email

YOU SUCK I get a question for you. Why does your newspaper suck so much now? I used to pick up every issue and so did my friends and family. But now your paper belongs back on the main-land with the other thieves. My family has been in Maui county since my grandfather and have seen plenty slick operators come and go fo years. We saw when this paper started, it was good. It was us. You embraced this place as home and made contributions, with the kids, with the aina. Now you don’t make no more contributions, now you take. But you’re only taking away from yourself. You know what, I suggest you find your soul once more. Find your heart, wherever you lost it. Try an remember what is was like to make a positive difference. Get back

to what Maui is. I suggest you get back with us or get out. Do you have the heart to print my letter? Kimo Kealoha via email Believe it or not, Kimo, we love feedback good or bad about the paper. We’re all about the growing curve here on Maui, and we will continue to grow with the community that we are so dedicated to. What we’re wondering is what part you hate the most. Is it the compelling local news, the stories about local surf contests and events, or the feature stories about the things that affect Maui, or perhaps the arts and entertainment listings really upset you, or is it the free movie listings provided island wide each week? Unfortunately for guys like you, you don’t have the heart to really get to the point of what’s bothering you, you hide behind aliases and you’re never going to make a positive difference either. –Editor


“Here’s to the Heroes” Queen Kaahumanu Center Hosts Benefit

York through an art sales benefit beginning on September 11, 2002. In the west wing of the Queen Kaahumanu Center near Macy’s, more than 80 original works of art go on display – and will be available for sale – from September 11th to September 15th, 2002. “Here’s to the Heroes” is Maui’s tribute to our own courageous Maui County Firefighters and the brave firefighters of New York City. The roster of participating artists is truly a

GENETICALLY ALTERED We don’t see much about genetically altered foods in the media, yet scientists from all over the world are calling for a moritorium on them. My friend had a bad reaction to the genetically altered papayas grown here in Hawaii, labeled “Rainbow”. He consumed one of these papayas every day for about a month. At that time he developed pain, tenderness, and swelling in joints throughout his body, which increased until he discontinued eating the genetically altered papayas. Rainbow papaya trees can be sprayed with full strength Round-up, without damage to the tree. The tree absorbs the herbicide nonetheless. The “Rainbow” papayas my neighbor may grow can easily genetically pollute the organic papayas I’m nurturing. Are any of these experiments being conducted on Maui? We don’t know. If you would like more on what the media isn’t mentioning about the dangers and mounting problems of genetically engineered foods, pharmaceuticals, etc. check out the web site of The Organic Consumers Association at <>. My letter only has room for the tip of the iceburg. Eloise Engman, Makawao

GET YOUR T.P. SOON It’s time to stock up on those necessary supplies like toilet paper, paper towels, and canned goods. No, we’re not in the path of an approaching hurricane, but we are in the path of an impending dock strike. It’s pure irony that in the face of this strike we’re just coming off of Labor Day; a holiday that in the words of Peter J. McGuire, cofounder of the American Federation of Labor and probable creator of Labor Day, was meant to honor those “who from rude nature have delved and carved all the grandeur we behold.” And yet here we are facing a labor issue that ­threatens to cripple Hawaii’s economy as well as wreak havoc over the national ­economy. Granted, Hawaii’s 500-worker strong dockworker’s union isn’t responsible for the threatened strike, that distinction falls to members of the West Coast union, but Local 142 is in negotiations for a new contract as of next week, so they are ­obviously watching the unfolding drama in Los Angeles very closely. What does this mean for us, the regular people, if they go on strike? It means we’re not going to be able to get anything of importance from the mainland for a little while. Old-schoolers will scoff and say that Hawaiians found ways to cope long before they needed things from the mainland and they’ll be able to do it again. After all, we can always go back to tending the taro patches and the fishponds, right? Wrong. It’s amazing how quickly the things we take for granted, things like ­toilet paper and canned food, can seem indispensable when they’re gone. Of course there are ways to survive without them, but we’ve grown accustomed to certain things in life and when a strike such as this comes along, it has disastrous effects for a state that relies on shipping for about 90% of

its goods. It’s like living up in a mountain village that’s accessible by only one road and then having the people responsible for maintaining that road blow a big hole in it because they don’t get the medical and vacation benefits they feel they deserve. In the meantime, the people most affected by the labor dispute are the recipients at the ends of the shipping lanes, you and I. While they strike, we sacrifice. Unions formed as far back as the early 1820’s when the working classes in Phila­ delphia and New York faced changing technology, falling wages, and growing gaps between the rich and poor. Sounds a little similar to today except for that back then people could be imprisoned or forced into the Militia for outstanding debt. There was no federal guarantee of education for ­children, some states had just agreed to a 10-hour workday, and anybody in the lower working classes could count on remaining there. Somewhere along the way, the unions discovered their power. They discovered that they could hold an entire industry hostage by virtue of their refusal to work. What they don’t realize, or just don’t care about, is that they’re holding their own community hostage by way of the community’s need for that industry’s services. So they slow down their work output because they want guaranteed wage increases each year according to inflation. In the end they’ll get their wage ­increases but the companies will want to maintain their profit margins so they jack up the prices on the goods the workers deliver. This means we have to spend more than we used to which means our money is ­basically worth less. That all equals up to inflationary pricing which starts union leaders planning next year’s negotiations to make sure wage increases equal inflation. And the whole thing starts over.

The Failure of Al-Qaeda I don’t think it’s possible to be too melodramatic when speaking of the day the United States came under enemy attack in full view of every living room in America. I, for one, thought it literally impossible for an attack to be launched against the continental United States. I knew we had enemies, but I figured our geographic isolation rendered them irrelevant. I always thought that because we were surrounded by friendly neighbors to the north

we bonded as one. Although the Pentagon came under attack as well, it was the live video feeds of the World Trade Centers that captured the entire nation simultaneously. While Al-Qaeda attempted to thrust a ­dividing spear into the lives and hearts of the American people, it ended up providing the glue by which we now stick together. Al-Qaeda abhors our sense of freedom, but it is more than just our freedom that got us

us sacrifice our comfort. And to be honest with you, America is a couple of creature comforts above the norm. It’s no accident that Al-Qaeda chose the World Trade Center and the Pentagon as its target; they were trying to be symbolic and catastrophic at the same time. The

CONSPIRACY OR COINCIDENCE? Is this a coincidence or is there a more sinister force at work here? Conspiracy theorists will point to the image of the burning World Trade Center on the $20 bill as direct proof that the U.S. Government is responsible for the 9/11 attacks. Common sense will point to it as a coincidence so spooky only a picture will do it justice. and south, our enemies would never be able to mount a serious attack. I never thought they would get us from the inside, using our own system as their main weapon. After September 11, 2001, I stopped using the phrase “I never thought.” To a small percentage of people in the world, absurd violence is so easily understood, it’s a readily considered option. To the majority of the world, myself included, violence is understood as a necessary evil for mankind, but the absurd variety, the evil variety that changes your life forever, is disregarded. On September 11, 2001, a Muslim extremist organization known simply as Al-Qaeda set out to show the majority of the world that the small percentage of unfathomable evil was not to be disregarded. As time has gone on and we approach the oneyear anniversary of The Day, one thing is for certain; Al-Qaeda and the evil it embodies will no longer be disregarded. Al-Qaeda succeeded in one thing that day – they shifted the balance of power in the world. However, Al-Qaeda failed miserably in one other, vital way – they did not shift it in their favor. In the days following the attack, the United States was on virtual shutdown. The skies were empty, the stadiums were empty, but the hearts of the American people were full. Full of anguish, fear, uncertainty, but most of all, anger. I mean, how the hell could something like this happen? Who do these people think they are? Don’t they know who they’re messing with? As the lone world superpower that is credited with winning the Cold War and effectively ending communism, we thought we were invincible. And then some knee-jerk little group headed by a freak named Osama bin Laden had the nerve to bring it to us? At first, we were shocked, but that shock quickly turned to adrenaline. When that adrenaline was focused into resolve we showed ourselves and the world a power of spirit heretofore unseen. When we watched the attacks as one,




attacked. It is more than just watching Britney Spears, eating McDonald’s, and allowing our women to wear revealing clothes. It’s the fact that we want to let everyone else in on the fun that made us the enemy. It was our freedom to interact and share ideas and ­cultures that made us a target. It is our ­freedom to speak, travel, dress and worship as guaranteed by our constitution that is the focus of their anger. But in the last year, we’ve seen that freedom of interaction come under duress, just like they had hoped. Under normal circumstances, we mix freely and routinely. Differences may be commented on and although discrimination does happen, it is not rampant. However, as the nation shut down immediately following the attacks, ­nervous eyes openly searched for anyone and everyone even remotely resembling a terrorist. Innocent Arabs were intentionally attacked and, in a few cases, killed. In the most visible example of national suspicion, check-in lines at airports reached three hours or more with anyone seemingly non-American facing extra delays. Cries about the loss of our inherent civil rights abounded. In a sense, Al-Qaeda was succeeding because we were tightening the noose around our freedom. Or were we? Nowhere in our Constitution does it say we have the inherent right to a speedy boarding pass at the airport. While we now face extra scrutiny during airport screenings, credit checks, or job applications, that extra scrutiny does not amount to an infringement upon our civil rights but rather the cautious protection of the majority’s right to life. Sure, getting to the airport three hours early is a major hassle, but so is cleaning up all of downtown New York after two large airliners fly into the biggest buildings in town. Look at it this way – an added bonus to this extra attention to ­security is the increased drug seizures at airports as well as the capture of a few drunken pilots caught in the cross-hairs of overzealous screeners. Al-Qaeda may have been looking to make us sacrifice our freedom, but all they did was make

Pentagon has obvious symbolic implications for Muslim extremists but it’s the WTC that serves as the financial capital of America and the Western Democratic World. According to their extreme religious views, democratic societies are void of spirit and pledge allegiance to no god, only the Almighty Dollar. And while they obviously failed to take note of the hypocrisy surrounding their financial support through the hands of the very society they were trying to destroy, we did not. The United States government knew about Al-Qaeda long before the rest of us, and they surely knew how it got its financing. As a result of the attacks, our government quickly moved to cut off all financial support for the group. The accounting records of major corporations were closely examined by the Treasury department in an effort to see where the money goes. After all, there are trillions of dollars moving in and out of this country on a daily basis and nobody really knows where it comes from or where it goes. So we set about finding out where it all goes and along the way, we discovered a few discrepancies of our own; namely, Enron . . . and WorldCom. With Enron, what was at first the largest corporate bankruptcy in the nation’s history was quickly followed by the admission of over $7 BILLION in fraudulent accounting by WorldCom. In the process, Wall Street took a nose-dive that it still hasn’t recovered from. But did Al-Qaeda succeed in decimating our economy? While that question won’t be answered for quite some time, my initial guess is no. Evidence supporting our national recovery from this debacle can be found within the government’s connections to Enron. Stories of President Bush’s close ties to Enron were immediate and convincing. Over 50 highlevel members of Bush’s administration, including the secretary of the Army who was an employee of Enron for over 20 years, have extensive connections to the company. As a result, indictments for the company’s executives were slow in coming and that had people in an uproar. Favoritism! -people shouted. But the important thing to

remember is that in the end, justice prevailed and President Bush’s administration indicted executives in the ­company. Are we free of greedy, immoral ­capitalists? Of course not, because the world is not free of greedy, immoral people. But we proved that in a truly democratic society, even the powerful and influential have to abide by the law. As a nation we are often accused of pushing our beliefs and values on other countries. But we do so with the conviction that, in our society, when things don’t happen as they should, we have the strength to do the right thing and correct our wrongs, as painful as that may be. Al-Qaeda was after more than just our ­economy. They knew they were no match for us face to face but they thought that by attacking us from a religious standpoint, we would retaliate from our religious standpoint and thereby ignite a war of religions and cultures that would put the world in its proper order. At first, it looked like they might succeed. But America, as we are prone to do, looked at the bigger picture and realized that Islam was not responsible for the attacks. A bunch of lunatics hiding behind Islamic “law” may have been responsible, but they did not represent an entire religion. We decided not to engage in a war of religions but simply in a war of right vs. wrong. Good vs. Evil. That is what the United States has always set out to do – stand up for what we think is Good. Now, thanks to Al-Qaeda, we know what Evil looks like instead of just attaching a metaphorical picture to it. Now we have ­something to bring to the rest of the world when we ask for their support in going after the bad guys. Now the rest of the world shares our enthusiasm in bringing down that bad guy, even if they don’t match it. Inside our own country, members of our military get the respect they deserve, the respect so blatantly missing after Vietnam. Our civil servants – firefighters, nurses, doctors, policemen – find themselves on the brink of greater recognition. They may have battered our economy, but they didn’t knock it out. They may have hit our World Trade Center, but they missed our Statue of Liberty.

NEWSOFTHEWEIRD LEAD STORIES During the last four months, an unidentified motorist in a maroon Volvo has been reported by construction workers in the California cities of Fremont, Hayward, Brentwood and Dublin to have approached them and requested that they fill his car with concrete or hot asphalt. An employee of Independent Construction (Concord, Calif.) honored the request in May in Dublin, with concrete up to steering-wheel level. The man allegedly said that he was trying to get back at his ex-wife. Police want to question him, according to an August Oakland Tribune report, although they admit he has not committed any crime. LifeGem Memorials (Elk Grove Village, Ill.) announced in August that, using available technology, it can turn a loved one’s cremated ashes into a diamond by pressing and heating the ashes to 5,400 degrees Fahrenheit. A chemistry professor cited by The New York Times agreed that the plan was sound; carbon from the ashes converts to graphite, which can be pressurized into a diamond. LifeGem prices start at $4,000 for a quarter-carat.

AWESOME! Football player Dennis Johnson, now an Arizona Cardinals rookie defensive end, began his high school football career at age 6 as a 5-foot-7, 170-pound second-grader playing for Harrodsburg (Ky.) High School, according to an April Los Angeles Times profile. (Nowadays, only ninth-graders and up can play, by national rule.) Johnson appeared in several games that year (after Harrodsburg had built up big leads), ­apparently holding his own against 18-yearolds. According to a BBC News dispatch from Harar, Ethiopia, in June, Mulugeta Wolde Mariam (“the hyena man of Harar”) has

trained about 80 local wild hyenas to congregate around him at night and be fed by grabbing pieces of meat out of Mulugeta’s mouth with their teeth. Said he, “There is no danger unless you are scared, as the hyenas sense fear.”

OUR CIVILIZATION IN DECLINE A pregnant woman told a New Zealand TV audience on July 12 that she had agreed to let adult filmmaker Stephen Crow film her childbirth for a sequence in an upcoming pornographic movie (Auckland). Idaho’s Medicaid manager told reporters (who were questioning him about new restrictions that denied many clients dentures) that the ­elderly “can (just) gum their food” (Boise, May). At least 23 eighth-graders in the Rockford (Ill.) School District failed every single class last year but nevertheless were promoted (July).

ALSO, IN THE LAST MONTH ... A judge set a 19-year-old man for trial in a revenge-shooting, allegedly in retaliation for the victim’s having given him a “wedgie” at a concert (Southampton, Pa.). A 37-year-old woman received probation-only after being charged with attempting to kill her husband by placing poisonous spiders on him while he slept (Rutherford County, Tenn.). A ­pregnant woman in the middle of a Caesarian delivery at the Waitakere Hospital had her legs catch on fire (from the alcohol-swabbing solution), but mother and ­eventual baby received only minor injuries (Waitemata, New Zealand). Police, citing federal forfeiture law, demanded that McIntosh College give up ownership of one of its dormitories to the city because so much drug activity was taking place inside (Dover, N.H.).

Bush’s Strategy of Distraction

by Ted Rall

NEW YORK--Bush’s “war on terrorism” (one uses quotes for things which exist in name only) has already manifested most of the characteristics of the dystopian society described in George Orwell’s “1984.” Like Big Brother, Bush is an unelected figurehead for a secretive clan of wealthy hypocrites who live above the law. Like Orwell’s fictional Oceania, the United States is engaged in a perpetual war in which victory isn’t expected within our lifetime. Oceania bombs its own people, using the fear of faux terrorism to maintain control over the population. The United States trains and finances radical Islamist terrorists who predictably turn against Americans, then uses the specter of terrorism to justify everything from fast-track signing authority on free trade (opposition to NAFTA and the WTO, Bush’s U.S. Trade Representative argues, is “an attack on freedom”) to tax cuts for the Administration’s wealthy chums to smearing Tom Daschle as a communist terrorist enemy-of-the-state. Bush’s Operation TIPS (“Terrorism Information and Prevention System”) asks mail deliverers, meter readers, truckers (!) and other citizens to spy on their neighbors and customers (or, in FEMA jargon, “to report suspicious, publicly observable activity that could be related to terrorism”). Thanks to your federal government, 128 channels may not be the only electronic marvel your cable guy is installing in your home. And what could be more characteristic of Stalinist totalitarianism than “disappearing” hundreds of detainees into a covert prison system--no lawyer, no trial, no charges--never to be seen again? In “1984” the ubiquitous Emmanuel Goldstein is the nation’s bête noire, blamed by the government for everything that goes wrong. He leads the resistance; he’s the author of a detailed historical treatise. Every afternoon the citizens of Oceania gather for a “two-minute hate,” a cathartic scream-in during which Goldstein’s smug face is flashed on screens, inspiring the delirious contempt of frenzied crowds. Goldstein, however, does not exist. Nor does the resistance. The Party invented him to distract the citizenry from the real evildoers--themselves. And because Goldstein isn’t real, Goldstein is immortal. The distraction, like the “war,” is eternal. George Orwell had Goldstein. George Bush has bin Laden. Osama was blamed for everything that went wrong for the U.S. during the ‘90s. Whenever something blew up, whether it was American embassies in East Africa or the U.S.S. Cole or even the federal building in Oklahoma City, American officials trotted out bin Laden’s name before the body count had even begun. So it




was hardly a surprise when, on September 17 Resident Bush barked that bin Laden was “wanted dead or alive” for the 9-11 strikes, though in fact his role was probably limited to funding the 19 Egyptian jihadis who planned and carried them out. Capturing bin Laden was Bush’s top priority, or so he said time after time; the bombing campaign against the Taliban was marketed to the American people as a war against a regime that was “harboring” a wanted criminal. But after driving the Taliban out of Kabul, according to a senior U.S. military officer serving in Afghanistan, “mission creep” began--U.S. forces lost focus. American intelligence sided with some warlords while trying to assassinate others. They became entangled in local politics. They shuttled Afghan officials between Central Asian capitals to cut oil and gas pipeline deals favorable to the U.S. The elusive Osama became a low priority. The Defense Department story is that back in December and January they had America’s Most Wanted cornered in the Tora Bora mountains on Afghanistan’s eastern border with Pakistan--they know he was up there because they heard him on walkie-talkies-and they bombed his hideout so mercilessly that he must have been killed. But they couldn’t be sure either way, because Afghan soldiers of the Northern Alliance and Eastern Shuria were the first to comb the hills. As documented in my book To Afghanistan and Back, 95 percent of those troops were Talibs on September 10; they were far more likely to offer bin Laden a ride home than to shoot or arrest him. Some experts doubt that the U.S. was ever serious about capturing Osama. If he went on trial for 9-11, after all, his testimony about his years with the CIA could prove devastatingly embarrassing. This explains, they say, why Bush refused Taliban offers to turn over bin Laden, why Donald Rumsfeld bombed rather than invaded by ground, why Colin Powell never asked Pakistan to seal the border, why General Tommy Franks relied on unreliable local troops. And the Tora Bora escape tale doesn’t jibe with Afghan topography or local eyewitnesses, who say that Osama left for Pakistani Kashmir--a far more typical exit for fleeing Afghans than the tribal areas of the Northwest Frontier Province--days after 9-11. The Bush Administration denies such cynical motives for their actions, claiming stupidity rather than duplicity. Support for the inept-not-liars theory came with a February Hellfire missile attack launched by a drone plane in eastern Afghanistan. The airstrike targeted a group of men, one of whom looked to the drone’s operator like the 6’5”, white-tail-turbaned bin Laden. Three desperately poor scrap metal scavengers were blown to bits, but hey--one of them was fairly tall. Like the Party in Oceania--sometimes at war with Eurasia, other times with Eastasia, the enemy always







having been the same--the Bushies’ line on Osama has alternated between vague, cunning and menacing. “I suspect we will [find bin laden and other Al Qaeda leaders],” Rumsfeld said in March. “I think we have a good crack at it. I suspect we’ll get all or most [of them].” In April, he backtracked: “He’s alive or dead. He’s in Afghanistan or somewhere else.” By June, Time magazine was reporting, “White House aides say bin Laden’s name rarely comes up in meetings.” Public support for living the rest of their days fighting Bush’s war had begun to wane over the summer. What was missing from the cocktail of propaganda? Just in time for the build-up for the inevitable orgy of patriotic sentimentality to commemorate 9-11-02, Osama bin Goldstein has been brought back from the maybe-presumed-dead. On August 28, The New York Times quoted military sources as saying that the Evil One “is probably still alive and moving between mountain hideouts somewhere on a 250-mile stretch of the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan.” The on-again-off-again hunt for Osama is on again, according to General Franks: “What I will say is that we have not seen convincing proof that bin Laden [is] dead. I actually don’t know whether he’s alive or dead.” “Where’s Osama?” has become America’s favorite parlor game. My theory is that he is no longer with us; it’s not like the sad-eyed egoist to skip his regular appearances on Al Jazeera TV. My friends think he’s laying low in Kashmir or Yemen. We discuss this topic frequently. Wondering about Osama is a lot more fun than whining about the fact that the economy sucks, that everyone we know is getting laid off, that we’re losing our civil rights, that we’ll be paying off those $300 tax cuts for the rest of our lives. The search for bin Laden keeps us distracted, and that’s just the way our leaders like it.






“George Orwell had Goldstein. George Bush has bin Laden.”

Today, these legendary steep cliffs continue to beckon the courageous as 10 of the world’s best divers gather for the Red Bull Cliff Diving event atop the 86-foot cliff face. Nakoa warriors guarded the sacred burial grounds and blessed the divers before the competition. Amongst the competitors was Joe

Zuber performed a forward quatro somersault pike with a half twist during the third and final round giving him the highest score of the entire competition at 142.5 out of 150, granting him the winning edge to take home the Red Bull Cliff Diving Lana’i title. “Standing on the platform before my final dive was the most nerve-wracking moment of the entire competition. But once I hit the water I knew that PRIZE MONEY I had nailed it,” said Zuber. $3,600 $2,200 Sergey Zotin of Russia took $1,850 second place with his electrify$1,500 ing triple back somersault pike $1,250 with two twists and Vyacheslav $1,100 “Slava” Polyeshuk of Ukraine $1,000 $900 took third place with his amaz$800 ing forward quatro somersault

pike with a half twist during the threeround competition. Magnus Gardarsson was the only diver to go head first instead of feet first and stopped hearts with his inward three and a half somersault pike to take fourth place. An international panel of former National and Olympic team divers, evaluated the execution of each dive. According to Craig Lincoln, former US Olympian and Red Bull Cliff Diving official, today’s performances propelled the sport to new heights. “These highly skilled athletes followed in the footsteps of the sport’s forefathers by using a high degree of concentration and technique and gracefully entered the water at speeds of over 60 mph,” said Lincoln. “These divers paid the sport the respect it deserved and it really showed in their performances today.” With the support of the Hawaii Tourism Authority, Red Bull was able to host this event at such a special location. Hundreds of spectators had the opportunity to see the talent, agility, and technique of these






modern day warriors from the decks of Trilogy Excursion boats, personal motor and sailboats, sea kayaks, and surf boards. Requiring great mental and physical strength, cliff diving places immense stress on

the athletes and represents a perfect example of absolute body and mind control. Before participating in cliff diving competitions, athletes have completed extensive training programs in traditional diving and/or other acrobatic disciplines,

Kama’aina Kitchen

A Treat of Wonderful Food and Service The Wharf Cinema Center has quaint shops, tourists’ activity agents, and of course, great food. One restaurant stands out among the others. Kamaaina Kitchen is family-owned and operated. Whether you’re a local or a tourist, you will definitely get a treat of wonderful food and service. The menu consists of breakfast, which is served all day long, sandwiches, Italian pastas, salads, appetizers, American dishes and oriental cuisine. My friend, Emily, ordered two eggs, hash browns, wheat toast and a side of pineapple. Since it was noon, I wanted something other than breakfast. I almost ordered a cheeseburger, but at the last minute, I ordered a beef stir-fry. While Emily and I waited for our food, we talked about everything under the sun. We literally talked about everything under the sun since we were sitting outside with an umbrella to block out most of the sun’s rays. I noticed that every employee working that day was wearing a brown and off-white Aloha shirt. The atmosphere was local and relaxing. Our food arrived and we both smiled. I seem to always smile when someone places

salad accompanied the stir-fry. The vegetables were slightly crunchy, but soft enough to enjoy. The beef was a meat lover’s dream. It was saucy and didn’t have any fat on it. The rice was light and fluffy, and the macaroni salad was the best that I have tasted so far on the island. Before I knew it, all of my food was gone. Emily was still working on her breakfast. I watched her put soy sauce on her pineapple. I was hesitant to try it, but I did and it was very good. If you haven’t tried it, you need to. The pineapple was wonderfully fresh and tasty. Her eggs were white on the outside with the yolks somewhat runny. She enjoyed her meal as much as I enjoyed mine. For a superb meal, wander over to the Wharf Cinema center in Lahaina and eat at the Kamaaina Kitchen. The restaurant is open Monday through Saturday from 7 am to 9 pm and on Sundays from 7 am to 2pm. Take out orders are also available. food in front of me! Emily’s breakfast looked delicious. Two over-medium eggs, crisp hash browns, wheat toast, and four pineapple slices begged her to eat them.

My plate consisted of a beef stir-fry. Mixed in the stir-fry were carrots, broccoli, onions, water chestnuts, and a creamy meat sauce. One scoop of rice and one scoop of macaroni

“Pure Poetry” — Tadashi Sato Retrospective Exhibit, Opening September 6th at the Schaefer Gallery, MACC After a lifetime of achievement, success in both New York and Hawaii, and with the opening of his Retrospective exhibit at the MACC, local treasure Tadashi Sato is clearly the master of his art. Surprisingly, he feels that he is just now really beginning to paint! Tadashi Sato, born in 1923 and raised in Lahaina, is often noted for having been a part of the Abstract Expressionist movement that was blooming in New York in the 1950’s, but he does not consider himself a member of the “avant-garde”. While as a young man, he did occasionally rub elbows with notable artists and celebrities of the day, that was not the main concern of the sincere, young Sato. He was on his own ­journey – an artist in search of himself. Although influenced by some of his university mentors and artistic contemporaries, he has ultimately found his most long-standing inspiration from what began with childhood lessons in Japanese Sumi Ink and Calligraphy at Lahainaluna School. Years later, he would travel to Japan to continue his study in this graceful artform. His first arrival in New York City, lasting two years, was the result of a scholarship he was awarded through his study with painter Ralston Crawford on Oahu. Later, he returned to NY because Hawaii was too quiet for the youthful artist, who was looking for another taste of big-city “zip” and inspiration. This was when Sato’s break-through paintings, abstractions of NY ­subways, were first created. You can already see the emergence of his own personal voice in these early works, some of which will be on display at his Retrospective. During these years, Sato enjoyed a ­camaraderie with a group of young






Japanese artists and writers in both NY and Hawaii who were loosely known as “The Metcalfe Chateau,” named after their studio and gathering place on Metcalfe Street in Honolulu. The strong bond of the group was enriching to the artists. They shared a common cultural heritage, yet they were modern young men looking for their own voice. They shared a feeling and philosophy of art that was understood, yet “unspoken between us.” Sato tells a story of sharing leftover rice with one of his writer friends in NY, who would come by hungry in the middle of the night. This went on for some time until Sato’s wife discovered their late-night raids of the hard-earned food. At this time, Sato was working as a guard at the Museum of Modern Art. Consequently, on Sato’s insistence, his friend found work as an extra in a Broadway show, which eventually led to Sato’s “big break” months later. At a party for the cast & crew of the show, his friend ­boldly proclaimed to actor Charles Laughton (Capt’n Bly – Mutiny on the Bounty), “You haven’t seen painting until you’ve seen a Sato.” Laughton, an avid art collector, took the bait and brought Burgess Meredith and Cornelia Skinner along to Sato’s tiny studio apartment, bought four ­paintings, and connected Sato to the prestigious and modern Marion Willard Gallery in NYC. Sato was 35 years old. Sato’s relationship with Willard and the gallery lasted 9 years, during which time Sato’s work hung next to many of the art stars of the period. Willard’s refined demeanor and taste in art were similar to Sato’s, and they became good friends, even enjoying regular gatherings at Willard’s Long Island home.





Resting Mynah Although Sato wasn’t exactly mixing with the now famous NY art scene, he had more ­importantly found his own, mature style and a unique place within the art world. His success afforded him the freedom to continue his ­personal ­artistic explorations uninhibited. As a Hawaiian-born artist, Sato is unique in that he made his name off-island first, a ­testament to his commitment and skill. When he returned to Maui, several eager galleries vied for his work, but when their interest came with the expectation that he paint “ocean scenes,” Sato politely declined. Indeed, many of Sato’s works are inspired by the ocean or other such “moments in nature”, however, the outcome could not be controlled by gallery owners whose concerns are rooted in catering to a tourist market. Sato’s admirable integrity remains to this day with his latest inspirations coming from the mynah birds nesting in the roof of his studio. But these paintings of mynah birds (also in the Retrospective) are not simple depictions of birds; just as his ocean-inspired works are not simply copies of sunsets over the ocean.




For him, the “moment in nature” is merely the ­catalyst; the initial inspiration that gets the painting started. As the abstraction develops, the painting’s own voice begins to emerge, and there is a “moment of surprise” when the painting reveals its previously hidden nature; it is only then that a piece comes to completion. Visually, the work reflects this process. It is easy to see the natural, particularly Hawaiian, inspired basis behind the work, but he has taken it so far beyond these origins, that it comes closer to what can only be described as an “indefinable universality.” Soft, emerging and disappearing, organic or sometimes geometric forms, interacting with line and space, make one think of life on a cellular level, underwater worlds, or even alien environments complete with spaceship-like shapes. In an effort to describe the effect of the work, one critic used the term “visual fragrances.” Sato’s images are rooted in our familiar, tangible world; yet they float, just beyond, just within reach, acting as a kind of bridge to deeper, subtler commonalities. This explains why so many people are able to “get something” out of Sato’s work - it exists on all levels. It works as Modern Hawaiiana, pure design and color, yet also holds secrets that hint at the mysteries of our world, those things that we still don’t have words for, but can be profoundly felt. Sato encourages the viewer to “take a closer look.” 79 years old and Sato is just beginning. He is now ready to just paint. That “distance” between the artist and the art is no longer present, or rather, the artist and the art have merged. He lights up with a youthful twinkle as he speaks of his new-found connectedness to the work, and eagerly looks forward to the free time he will have once the Retrospective is over and he can go back to what he does best, and that is, simply paint.





Dad Or The Badge De Niro And Franco Press The Issue City By The Sea –


“City By The Sea” is a plodding cop drama with inspired performances that make it more of an actor’s movie than a film audiences will talk about for days after seeing it. New York City homicide detective Vincent LaMarca (Robert De Niro - “1900”) sees his own troubled childhood reflected in the life of his neglected and drug-addicted son Joey (James Franco - “Spider-Man”), who slips into a head-on collision with his absentee father when he kills a drug dealer in self defense. James Franco shakes the big screen by the scruff of its furry neck with his rich characterization of an only child shunned by his father after divorce destroys his family. The scenes between De Niro and Franco are golden ­examples of modern American method acting at its best. The city by the sea of the film’s title is Long Beach, New York — known as Brooklyn’s “outpatient by the sea”—, for which the Jersey Shore’s now-faded Asbury Park served as the shooting location of a once-bustling seaside resort now suffering from abandonment and neglect. The melancholy milieu echoes the devastation of family that the LaMarcas have

suffered. As a boy, Vincent found salvation from a sympathetic police officer that took him in after arresting LaMarca’s father on kidnapping and child murder charges when Vincent’s father kidnapped the baby of a rich couple in a get-rich-quick scheme, and the child inadvertently suffocated in the back of his car. The traumatic effect of that tragic event, along with being shunned by people around him, drove LaMarca to become a dutiful cop focused on eclipsing the wrongs of his dad. But a singular burst of violence against his wife brought about a divorce that later left him ambivalent about ­taking any responsibility for his son. When we first see Joey LaMarca, he’s wandering a deserted beach boardwalk trying to sell a guitar so he can cop the drugs that will pacify his tweaking body. Franco’s gaunt cheekbones and rebellious gait speak volumes about the world of uncertainty and alienation that Joey finds consolation in. Joey already looks twice his age but Franco’s intensity immediately romanticizes the despondent aura he projects. Franco deservedly won a Best Actor Golden

seizes blame against Vincent when he turns his abandoned grandson over to the care of a city social worker. Eliza Dushku (best known for the TV series “Buffy The Vampire Slayer”) gives a substantial performance as Gina, Joey’s drug-tempted girlfriend and mother to their baby boy. The movie comes together in one scene between Vincent and his son after Joey calls his father to arrange a meeting to hash things out. Vincent intends to bring his son in for the crime he’s admitted to committing, while Joey is looking for some kind of apology or sign that his father understands him for the person he is. It’s a beautiful scene for the way in which the characters change subjects, attempting to read each other’s subtext without offending the other. The majority of the pain expressed naturally comes from Joey, who despite the premature aging on his face is still very much a child. When he asks his father whether he believes him as a cop or as his father, Victor is unprepared to answer. It’s a sad state of affairs that too many parents put themselves in with their children: refusing to come clean.

the new



Globe Award and an Emmy nomination for his characterization of TNT’s “James Dean.” Although the young actor hardly resembles Dean, Franco has an innate quality that, like Martin Sheen, seems to come directly from the ’50s landscape of American teen rebellion and carries with it Dean’s knowing-and-internalized attack on the hypocrisy around him. Both Joey and Vincent have closed themselves off from emotional commitment. Vincent dates his downstairs neighbor Michelle (Frances McDormand - “Almost Famous”) whom he dutifully picks up from her Times Square job every night, but never discloses anything of his turbulent past for fear of having her judge him. When Vincent finally succumbs to Michelle’s pressure to air his dirty laundry, she predictably finds it all too much to swallow and confirms Vincent’s anticipation of her judgmental disapproval by making roads out of the relationship. The subplot reinforces the film’s theme of non-commitment between parents and adults straitened yet by some childhood experience or a lack of ability to empathize. This trend is doubly reinforced in hypocrisy as Michelle

The Fast Runner is a masterpiece. It is, by any standard, an extraordinary film, a work of narrative sweep and visual beauty that honors the history of the art form even as it extends its perspective. The Fast Runner also abounds with humor and sensuality. The combination of dramatic realism and archaic grandeur is irresistibly powerful. The Fast Runner includes some unforgettable sequences.

WAIST REMOVAL Your response to “Over The Pump” was incredibly sexist. Apparently, he gets turned on by high-heeled shoes, and he wanted his girlfriend to wear them from time to time. He also wanted her to dress sexier sometimes. He described her as preferring to dress “casually” in comfortable clothing. You suggested that she should do as he wished. Women do not have to wear slinky clothes and high heels to look sexy. Saying so is a double standard. Men are viewed as attractive in Birkenstocks and overalls; why shouldn’t women in the same attire be seen the same way? Beauty comes from within. Your response has totally discredited your advice-giving ability. —A Former Reader Last week, when I came home and couldn’t find my dog, I ran up and down my street screaming, “Lucy...Snausages!” not “Lucy...arugula and frisée salad mix, tossed with edible flowers.” Just call me a slave to effectiveness in dog-catching. The dog-catching principle applies when women are looking for men (or looking to hang onto men they already have). That’s why I yelled at “women who dive into farmer overalls and sweatsuits so baggy they make The Big Top seem like a tube top — anything they can do to help their man forget they ever had a waist.” Now, maybe men should get hot for women who dress like goat-herds. Yes, maybe men should...but they don’t. (Regarding the alleged mass appeal of men who dress like goat-herds; perhaps you look at a man in Birkenstocks and overalls as attractive. I look at him in my rear-view mirror.) There is a double standard for what men and women should wear (a good thing, considering how few men can carry off a little black dress and strappy heels). Contrary to what certain “feminists” would have you believe, this double standard isn’t something that’s hammered out by a ­huddled cabal of fashion rag editors, subsisting solely on cigarettes and the microcalories in Evian while plotting against womankind. No, this goes back much, much further than some back, back office at Harper’s Bazaar or Vogue. Like, to the Pleistocene. It isn’t just the idiot Advice Goddess who says so. According to anthropologist Donald Symons, in “Evolution of Human Sexuality,” evidence suggests that women and men have “pursued substantially different reproductive ‘strategies’ for millions of years.” An army of anthropologists, psychologists, and chimp-chasers concur. Women evolved to seek men of status and power — all the better to provide for their furry little children. Women seem wired to care about men’s looks to some degree (tipoffs to genetic fitness like tallness and facial and bodily symmetry), but whether a guy’s a hottie doesn’t seem to be of primo importance. In one of the more hilarious studies (J.M. Townsend and G.D. Levy,




“Journal Of Psychology,” 1990), women shown photographs of various men said they’d choose an ugly man wearing a Rolex over a handsome man in a Burger King uniform — no matter whether they were pairing up for the long haul or the short roll. Men, on the other hand, are wired to want young, beautiful women — and have been for millions of years, so don’t go blaming Hugh Hefner. What’s beautiful? What’s healthy, that’s what. Men evolved to prefer stuff like clear skin, shiny hair, good muscle tone, and symmetrical features; signs that a woman was a strong, healthy candidate to give birth to an entire prehistoric soccer team...or at least a healthy goalie or two. This, in turn, meant that the man’s genes would have a good chance of doing the backstroke in the gene pools of future generations. One of the most biologically reliable signals of a woman’s fertility is what University of Texas psych prof Devendra Singh calls a “low waist-to-hip ratio” —”universitese” for “an hourglass figure.”In 1993, Singh published his famous study in the “Journal of Personality and Social Psychology,” detailing how men, across cultures, are drawn to this shape. The ideal WHR of 0.7, which Singh gets from dividing a woman’s hip size by her waist size, is shared (to the few tenths of a point) by Marilyn Monroe and Kate Moss, Barbie dolls and ancient fertility icons, Playboy centerfolds and Miss America winners. If you’re a larger lady, don’t despair. Singh found that shape matters more than size. If your waistline is more bell jar than hourglass, dress to give yourself the illusion of a waist. The point, in all this, isn’t to attract a guy who’s looking to marry Barbie — which brings us to your retirement from my readership due to your adamance that beauty comes from within. Yes, it does — and by using your waistline to draw a man to you, you’ll increase the chances that he’ll come to love you for...the arugula and frisée salad mix within.

MAUI’SASTROLOGY ARIES [Mar. 20 - Apr. 19] - Grand trine in the three fire signs includes two asteroids along with Pluto. This combination urges you to transform your philosophies learned as a child by focusing your nurturing and creative abilities on ideas and concepts that have been around your periphery for years. Make them your new reality. TAURUS [Apr. 19 - May 20] - Your ruler slides out of the grand trine of amazing changes and into Scorpio, your opposite sign. It’s the annual time to focus on your relationships. Your exchanges with friends and loved ones flow so much more easily during this transit. Since Venus goes retrograde in October, she’ll be there through January. Enjoy! GEMINI [May 20 - June 21] - Get your ­projects completed that are hanging around. Negotiations completed and any loose ends in business handled before Mercury, your ruler, goes retrograde on the 13th. Harness the power of the grand trines in fire and air and accomplish everything you set your mind to. CANCER [June 21 - July 22] - Bracketed by two grand trines, you’re able to communicate with ease and toss off those chains that you’ve allowed to bind you since childhood. Mentally you’re freeing yourself from your siblings and peer’s projections. Spiritually, you know it’s time to allow new philosophies to anchor into a positive belief system. LEO [July 22 - Aug. 22] - Take some solo time and get clear of all influences, especially if you’re born around the 8th day of Leo (end of July). As a leader, you must know yourself well. Take some paper and write down under the heading “I believe” and fill it up with what you consider your truths, positive and negative. Do the negative ones serve you? VIRGO [Aug. 23 - Sept. 22] - You’ve a few days left to work with the power of the grand air trine which can assist you in releasing blocks in the prosperity flow. Check in with your partner to see if there’s a truly fair give and take in your shared finances. Record your dreams and use your intuitive discernment to apply them in your waking life. LIBRA [Sept. 22 - Oct. 22] - The asteroid Juno has entered your sign and it is time for

you to deepen your personal relationships. If you are not in one at this time, make an inner commitment to love yourself more and to open the doors which allow your divine partner to enter your life. Seek any barriers to the relationship flow and love them away. SCORPIO [Oct. 22 - Nov. 22] - With Mercury in your solar 12th house, you’ve got the opportunity to hear your subconscious mind’s programming about everything. Recording your dreams can help you see your points of self-sabotage. Interesting dichotomy is presented between seeking success in the outer world and exploring your inner workings. SAGITTARIUS [Nov. 22 - Dec. 20] - As Chiron goes direct in a few days, you may find old memories from your childhood of fear and trauma around money and security being revealed for you to release. Continue to clear out the debris and outdated expectations from prior relationships so you can build anew when Saturn leaves Gemini next year. CAPRICORN [Dec. 21 - Jan. 19] - Reviewing who you are in partnership with—making sure all is fair and there is mutual support—is part of your work and career focus for the next few months. Chiron moving direct shortly in your sign improves your rapport with the world and continues your self-healing, as you see clearly your truth mirrored back to you. AQUARIUS [Jan. 19 - Feb. 18] - During the next few weeks, you may suddenly see friends and loved ones switching into teachers bearing a spiritual message. Listen up! You’re all for changing the world, yet you resist changing yourself, please do consider how your personal change can assist the world’s uplifting ­spiral. PISCES [Feb. 18 - Mar. 20] - You may find yourself with more energy than usual to accomplish so much more every day. And there may also be a vibrancy as you look around the world that wasn’t there before. During the next two weeks, pay attention to the messages delivered through your dreams. You’ll find the points of selfsabotage.
