LETTERSTOTHE EDITOR HERE WE GO AGAIN! After the new administration’s appointment of Mike Foley to head of the planning department, we saw a new power play of anti growth and anti development immediately flying off the desk of our new director. Now the Mayor has nominated Diane Shepard as a candidate on the planning commission. What an insult and poor judgment for our future of Maui County. Diane has spoken up against every project, sub division, residence or just about any project that would bring jobs to our local community, and in my opinion, has very poor judgment for determining the future for our county. Maui needs sustainable growth and fiscal health if we are to continue to provide a future for our local people to remain here. The attitude of "I can come and live here but no one else can" has got to go. The new administration’s ideas of “no growth” will hurt us all and put a lot of families in financial hardship. Only through sheer numbers objecting to these types of people being appointed can we make a difference. Contact your Mayor, planning commission, and local representatives and voice your opposition to these types of decisions that are trying to be made under our noses. Watch for Diane Shepard's council confirmation hearing in the paper and please come and voice your objection. Maui will grow, and how to plan for the island's future growth is in our hands and should not be left to the few people who wish to have everybody suffer financial hardship from zero growth instead of smart sustainable growth. -Steve W. Kear Concerned businessman and resident

WAR & PEACE COMMENTARY Let me get this straight, for 12 years we have had an economic embargo against Iraq, which is just doublespeak for let’s just starve the bastards out. Let's not mince words, in the last 12 years we have been instrumental in the destruction of a once thriving economy. I am sure that this was no easy feat until the USA donated a trillion dollars to Saddam during the Reagan era. A majority of the weapons including chemical weapons were given with our good graces. We knew exactly what weapons we were going up against during the Gulf War, we knew those Scud missiles couldn’t hit the broad side of barn if you tried. Shit, they were lucky to hit Israel - let alone an F-14 or whatever we wanted to throw at them. We knew this was just a way to clean out the old Inventory, target practice, video games - an excuse for the Pentagon to appropriate more of your hard-earned tax dollars, about 75% of your dollars to be exact. Yeah, we knew exactly what Saddam had; we knew what he could do and what we wanted to do. WE really didn't give a damn about Kuwait. Kuwait is no democracy. No, in fact, it is very much like America

- a Plutocracy - except there, they don't pretend to have personal freedom, or freedom of the press. Kuwait was an excuse, a decoy for our Destabilization theory for the Middle East. You see, we haven't hurt the Iraqi people enough, there are still some children and old people left. In fact, I would venture to say that we have hurt the innocents of Bagdad, more than Saddam has, with our Embargo. For the last 12 years we have been bombing their country - now that’s a real Christian thing to do. Don't you agree? Let’s take a look at how old Saddam is going to level his weapons of mass destruction upon us. He hasn’t got a Navy, does he? We have pretty much destroyed his Air Force and I can't see him flying 8000 miles with no gas stations along the way carrying a bomb, can you? We're accusing Saddam of violations of international laws, and right around the corner, a convicted war criminal by the name of Sharon is doing everything that we are supposedly afraid Saddam will do, right now: ethnic cleansing, land-grabbing, occupation, a violation of countless UN resolutions. Let’s not be nice, Murder, with weapons of Mass Destruction, upon a people armed with stones and human bodies so despondent that they turn themselves into human bombs, now that is a threat to Freedom. Israel, qualifies as a Rogue nation with capabilities of Mass Destruction in violation of not only UN resolutions but everything that is Decent and Sacred to Human life. We must bear in mind that we are all Children of God - one no more or no less than the other. And as long as these myths are the inspiration that fuels Ignorance and Prejudice we are bound to be prisoners of Ancient Religious Dogma misinterpreted by men of little knowledge. Like old Chief Seattle so wisely spoke: "The land does not belong to us. We belong to the land." When we need strength and inner fortitude, we have a bunch of wimps who buy into this whole terrorist bullshit. They have the country believing that starting wars is the answer to eliminating hatred for America, instead of eliminating the very reason we are hated. Oil and military industrial complex go hand in hand, don't they? The real threat to the warmongers is PEACE. Peace is the most powerful of weapons. Let us use Peace for Peace. -Marcus Ramirez Makawao Maui Time welcomes letters commenting on our coverage or other topics of local interest.

OPINIONS BY TRAVIS HENDERSON

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black: U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner D-NY, took vicious aim at NASA Administrator Sean O'Keefe as O'Keefe sat in front of a Congressional Inquiry Board recently and was pelted with questions regarding why e-mails warning of the impending shuttle disaster never reached his desk. "I read about this before you did. That's crazy," said Rep. Weiner. First of all, O'Keefe's title at NASA is administrator, which means that his job is to sit up in his cozy office and point directions. He has no more control over shuttle missions than Weiner has over the rebuilding of the WTC in his home state of NY. Second, it there was ANY place that epitomized the idea of information getting lost in the vortex that is administrative bureaucracy, it is Washington D.C., the very place from which Weiner sits and issues ultimatums. Third, if a member of the lower management decides to withhold information from O'Keefe, how is that his responsibility? Granted, he has to be held ultimately responsible for the comings and goings of his agency but he has to assume he is receiving all the information necessary. Weiner's own aides undoubtedly filter information that comes across his desk and he is no more responsible for that lost information than O'Keefe. Sounds to me like someone is trying to make a name for himself by burning someone else at the stake. We may think we've come a long way from the Salem Witch Trials, but so long as there are Puritan finger-pointers like Anthony Weiner D-NY who would rather create fire than prevent more burnings, we'll never be too far removed.

PACK YOUR BAGS AND LEAVE In the "In case you didn't know" department, there is a female basketball player from a small school in New York who thinks it is cool to turn her back on the American Flag during the playing of the National Anthem before games. This has obviously, and understandably, created quite a stir in the stands as her reputation for protest grows, but my question is: she may be turning her back on the U.S. flag, but what exactly is she turning her face towards? If she doesn't believe in the policies of the U.S., whose policies does she believe in? Because for all the bad things the U.S. is guilty of, if someone else is doing it better, then I would like to know who that is. And furthermore, if she does have an idea about which country is doing things the right way, why doesn't she go there?

ROAD RAGE It would seem that there are 35 repairs being slated for the famed Road to Hana. These repairs include installation of draped meshing on the mauka slopes to prevent rockslides, construction of a concrete barrier in the event of unpreventable rockslides, and moving the highway seaward to create catchment areas for falling rocks. I just wonder if any of us are going to live long enough to see the actual project completed. I've seen road crews on Maui take four months to repave eighty yards of street. And this is going to kill poor Hana. That road's already tough enough to navigate with all the tourists driving 5 mph so they don't miss a single coconut. This is just going to make it a massive cluster-#$%@ as traffic has to be held up every five minutes so large machines can maneuver across the roads. I hope the Maui division of the Department of Transportation is drawing up contingency plans for excess traffic and the ensuing problems that it causes when most people begin trying to take the back way to Hana. And the initial price tag of $2 million? Not a chance. I figure that's about $98 million short of what it will end up costing.

I work at this restaurant here on Maui. It is inspection time, so I am cleaning extra every night, and trying to feed the staff early before I get started cleaning. Some shithead didn't put his food order in after the kitchen is broken down, and he wants to eat! Sorry brah, get a salad. He tattles to the floor manager like a big baby that I won't feed him.

Wildfire Is your home fire safe? Do you think there's a wildfire risk in Maui or in Hawaii in general? Chances are you might say no. But think again. Anywhere you have wooded or wildland areas and houses you have what's called a "wildland urban interface." Urban doesn't necessarily mean city, it's anywhere there are houses and wild land: Kihei, Kula, Haiku, Lahaina, Wailuku, essentially all of Maui is a wildland urban interface. Yet many people don't realize that they are at risk. "Wildfire on Maui? Nah, doesn't happen here," they say. Unfortunately it does. Between 1998 and 2000, 462 wildfires burned 60,000 acres across the state. In 1998 there were 99 brush fires in Kihei alone. Even small fires affect our island, given the number of endangered plants and animals found only here in Hawaii. Wildfire doesn't need to happen in your backyard to affect you. People all over the island were impacted by wildfire in some manner during a 1998 3,340-acre wildfire in Maalaea that jumped across Honoapiilani Highway, causing the evacuation of nearby residents. Traffic to Lahaina was disrupted for days affecting locals and tourists alike. People weren't able to get to and from work, tourists weren't able to get to their hotels. Westside traffic came to a halt again in 2001 when a brush fire came dangerously close to the Pali, closing the key road for hours. It's not just the economic impact of road closures that make wildfires expensive. A 1998 12,000-acre wildfire on Molokai cost $1 million dollars to extinguish. Since few county, state, or federal agencies have that money sitting around, the cost is eventual-

ly passed on to all of us taxpayers. Ever in denial, skeptics persist. "There's nothing I can do," they say. "Wildfires are freak accidents." Wrong. Although lightning often causes wildfires on the mainland, humans are the number one cause of wildfires in Hawaii. And human behavior can change. The need for people to take action and reduce their risk to wildfire is all the more acute given current weather patterns. Any long-time resident will tell you that Maui's weather is cyclical with drought and rainy years. In 1998 the Department

of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) commissioned the state's climatologist, Pao-Shin Chu of the University of Hawaii's Department of Meteorology, to study El Nino weather patterns and its correlation to wildfire. Chu's published report shows a direct increase in the number of wildfires in the spring and summer following an El Nino winter, even a mild one. Hawaii is currently in the middle of a mild El Nino winter. The last time the island experienced an El Nino winter was in 1998, when wild fires wreaked havoc on Maui and Molokai. "Based on that report we're concerned about the rest of this year," says DLNR's Glenn Shisido, Maui District Forest Management Supervisor. Councilwoman Johnson is also concerned, "particularly because we're having a wet season and a lot of greenery is growing up with more and more fuel that will become dry as the summer months go on," she says. "During previous wildfires there's been problems with large amounts of fuel." "We're trying to prepare ourselves and the public should do the same," adds Shisido. Firewise is a national program that helps communities reduce their risk to wildfire. As part of the National Wildland Urban Interface Fire Program, it's sponsored by the USDA Forest Service, the Department of the Interior land management agencies, the National Association of State Foresters, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), United States Fire Administration, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Firewise evolved from the devastating 1985 fire season when 1,400 homes were lost to wildfire around the country. Officials realized that wildfire was not geographically specific, but rather specific to a set of conditions: the wildland urban inter-

face. The more people move into wildland areas, the more the wildfire risk increases. The USDA and NFPA developed a series of workshops and brochures on wildfire safety to help people protect their homes. Catastrophic fire seasons in 1987 and 1991 fueled the need for more Firewise material, and a few years later an information-packed web site was launched. Recognizing that wildfire is everyone's responsibility, Firewise educates and encourages action that minimizes home loss to wildfire, building on a collaborative effort by bringing together homeowners, fire department personnel, building contractors, landscapers, architects, designers, land use planners, and other interested people. Working with officials from federal, state, and county wild land fire agencies, as well as community organizations, Firewise provides information on wildfires and mitigation techniques specific to that area. "People who live in remote areas or areas that are difficult for the fire department to access need to realize that they're going to be the first line of defense for their own property," says Johnson. "I think the Firewise program is great because it offers people an educational opportunity, providing them with everything they need to know to protect themselves from fire." Firewise practices include homeowners creating a buffer zone around their house, landscape architects using drought-resistant plants, and building developers using fireresistive construction materials. Once a neighborhood or community association determines the risks it faces, it works together with cooperating agencies to apply local solutions. One such effort on Maui is a green waste pickup project in Kihei's Maui Meadows developed by the Maui Fire Department and Tri-Isle Resource Conservation and Development Council Inc., (RC&D) and funded by a fire prevention matching-dollar grant. "The project will help protect homeowners and communities from the devastation fire can bring," says Sharon Souza, Tri-Isle RC&D program assistant. TriIsle RC&D has already received half the grant from federal agencies and now must find matching contributions in order to start the project. Working with the Maui Meadows Neighborhood Association in Kihei, Tri-Isle RC&D, Firewise, and the Fire Department plan to hold four workshops educating homeowners about Firewise in conjunction with green waste pick-up. Green waste that's collected will be turned into mulch for homeowners to use. "There's a lot you can do with Firewise," says Deputy Fire Marshal Neal Bal, Captain of the Fire Prevention Bureau. "I have a great outlook on what it can do in terms of public safety for communities." Hawaii is fortunate that it has the first Firewise Community Liaison in the country, serving as a pilot program for other states to follow. A longtime Maui resident with a background in fire and life safety, the Hawaii Firewise Community Liaison assists neighborhoods and communities around the state in adopting Firewise practices. To learn more about Firewise contact the Hawaii Firewise Community Liaison at 2803497, or check out <www.firewise.org>.


NEWSOFTHEWEIRD LEAD STORIES In January, the engineers and hobbyists of Utah's Salt Lake Astronomical Society told reporters they were planning to airdrop bowling balls, at very high altitude, to check out their impact when they land on the salt flats, to simulate the impact of meteorites. The society said it had been frustrated that it could not find any meteorites so far and had been wondering whether they had disintegrated or been pulverized on impact. Two days later, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, citing the many people engaged in work projects on the salt flats, said it was a bad idea to be dropping bowling balls around them.

READERS' CHOICE The race-discrimination lawsuit of two black sisters (Grace Fuller, 48, and Louise Sawyer, 46) against Southwest Airlines is scheduled to go to trial in Kansas City, Kan., in March. The sisters' entire case is that a white flight attendant, in a hurry to get passengers seated, recited Southwest's version of a rhyme that has a racist history: "Eenie, meeny, minie, moe / Pick a seat, We gotta go." The sisters felt degraded and believe they are due some money.

NATION AT WAR Most recent antiwar demonstrations have been by clothed people, but since November, nude demonstrations against an invasion of Iraq have taken place in Marin County, Calif. (200 women at three sites); near West Palm Beach, Fla. (23 people); Byron Bay, Australia (700); and New York City's Central Park (30, in the snow). And the U.S. Navy announced in February that it is way short of "morticians" and is willing to pay sign-up bonuses of $6,000 (but denied the job search was related to Iraq). And according to Britain's The Sun, both George Bush and Saddam Hussein recently ordered the same $975 handmade shoes from the Milan, Italy, shoemaker Vito Artioli (Bush in size 10, Saddam 9 1/2).

THE LITIGIOUS SOCIETY In February, a 23-year-old woman who had once changed clothes in the office of a talent agency in Brighton, Mich., while a hidden video camera was running, convinced a jury that that one humiliating experience was worth $575,250. She said that the incident was so severe (even though she had not sought counseling or taken medication for it), she had lost all trust in people and would have to give up on being a model.

because he refused to certify a male patient for a Pap smear to screen him for cervical cancer. The man sincerely believes he is a hermaphrodite, but his doctor said he can find no evidence of that (and in fact, the man once fathered a child). At least one colleague suggested appeasing the patient, which the doctor said he might do if someone would teach him the procedure for performing a cervical smear on a 34-year-old male.

PEOPLE DIFFERENT FROM US Kenneth Patrick Porche Jr., 22, was arrested outside the ladies' room at Dillard's department store in Houma, La., in January, carrying four plastic bags of urine and several empty bags labeled with descriptions such as "old woman." Police said they believed that Porche would enter a stall, disable the toilet's flush mechanism, and line the bowl with a plastic film to catch the urine, before hiding away in an adjacent stall. After a woman used the toilet and left, Porche would collect and bag the urine from the plastic film. Since Porche's behavior was difficult to characterize, police charged him under the catch-all "criminal mischief."

Maui, HI – A new free report has recently been released that reveals information every car accident victim should have before they speak to anyone. Research shows that even a “fender bender” can cause pain, headaches, even arthritis. Many car accident victims worry more about their car than they do their rights. If you have been involved in an auto accident listen to the 24-hour toll-free recorded message by calling 1-800-4887106. The call is free and so is the report.

Nudity: The Bare Truth Getting naked on Maui is a lot like shopping for real estate. What matters is location, location, location. If you’re on the sidewalk, you’re “in public” and certain laws apply. If you step off the sidewalk into a park, you have to ask whether you’ve entered federal land where National Parks regulations apply, a State Park where Hawaii laws apply, or private property where different laws and the will of the property owner apply. And, strangely, the enforceable laws about “lewdness” and “indecency” are far more stringent with regard to a photograph of your bare butt being displayed in public than your actual ’okole. In addition to location, there are four other factors that can be important in determining whether you are simply nude or legally lewd, although which laws apply (location) can matter in each of these as well. First, your attitude or intention matters

except in National Parks where only your state of undress is considered. Anywhere else, if you can be seen as intending to “alarm” or “affront” someone, that gives at least a chance that you’re criminally naked under existing statutes. Second, the first factor does not apply if you are married to the person you expose yourself to. Really! It doesn’t say anything about people you’ve been sleeping with for years, or your brother or anyone else. But it specifically excludes a person you are married to. In other sections, case law is very clear that law enforcement officers are not “the public,” and can not claim injury, alarm or affront by your “crime.” Third, it matters whether the other people who see you naked are also naked or are seeing other people naked at the same time. The most likely laws to be enforced against someone who takes off too much clothing in Hawaii are

By: Joseph W. Bean about “indecent exposure.” The law is not specific about the question of other people being naked too. However, a case note under §707734 added in the 2002 Supplement to Hawaii Revised Statutes of 1993 says, “Defendant did not act intentionally… to cause affront by exposing defendant’s genitals to a fellow sunbather… since the other sunbather was also nude….” Finally, again reading case law interpretations, it matters whether your nudity happens in a place established and known for nude sunbathing or other clothing-optional activities. On Maui, you find relative safety under this umbrella only in one location: Little Beach in Makena. Many guide books, web sites and magazines have identified Little Beach as clothing-optional for more than 40 years. So, not only do you get the safety of “established place” on this little stretch of sand, it’s also


where you will find others who are naked and can, therefore, not be alarmed or affronted.

About Little Beach Over the decades, Little Beach has pretty much developed its own community of people who either like to get naked or like to be around naked people. Some Maui residents have the idea that it is a “gay beach.” (I’m tempted to wonder if that means it only sleeps with other Southwest-facing beaches like itself!) While it’s true that a lot of gay men go to Little Beach, and it is often referred to as the closest thing Maui has to a gay community center, there is also a degree of segregation on the sand. Gay men and the people who want to be with them, including lesbians, tend to congregate at the far end of the beach. Single adults, couples and even families with children become aware of the gay-end and—usually—decide to scatter across other areas of the beach. Maui, according to Visitor Channel 7, has 33 miles of white sand beaches. Little Beach is less than 250 yards long, leaving well over 32 miles for the people who prefer to keep their pants on. You’d think that would be a settlement suitable to those who always exercise the option to remain clothed. It isn’t. Dr. George Harker, who is better known as “Dr. Leisure” and probably deserves to be thought of as the unofficial mayor of Little Beach, was actually drawn to Maui to testify in a case involving nudity there. Since moving to the island many years ago, he has become a Little Beach fixture, painting there as well as enjoying the beach. And he is constantly always up to date about laws and law enforcement around the issue of nudity. Dr. Harker’s web site,

www.drleisure.com, has a wealth of information and resources, including details about Harker’s own books and videos. He has testified as an expert witness on public nudity in Hawaii, New York and Florida, and is as interesting as he is informed. Naturally, sticking his neck out has also earned him enemies. “Uncle” Charlie Maxwell, a self-styled expert on all things Hawaiian and a former Maui police officer, is the most vocal opponent of nudity at Little Beach and, therefore, Dr. Leisure’s number one enemy. He is joined by Na Kupuna o Maui, a group of Hawaiian rights activists who are trying to establish Little Beach as a sacred site where—despite the fact that ancient Hawaiians would have used it naked themselves—nudity could be banned as offensive. And Na Kupuna has a natural ally you wouldn’t expect: The landowners and developers who are filling in the spaces around Makena Beach with mansions and estates. Many of them reportedly feel that a clothing-optional beach is bad for property values. Dr. Leisure would disagree, of course. He says many millions of dollars a year are pumped into the county’s economy by people who come here to visit Little Beach, “one of the top ten nude beaches in the world.” Maxwell told the Honolulu Star-Bulletin in November 2001 that state and county law enforcement tried unsuccessfully to curb nudity at Little Beach in the 1960’s and 1980’s. The most recent arrest there (that anyone remembers) was in 1987. The man arrested then was found guilty, but his conviction was overturned because the courts found that the anti-nudity rules for the area were invalid and unenforceable ab initio because of how they were originally added to the books. (This is from Recreational Nudity and the Law by Gordon Gill.) Interestingly, both the State House and Senate of Hawaii had bills before them in 2001 which would have given counties the right to end the controversy simply by designating specific beaches as “set aside for nude

sunbathing.” Senate Bill 1284 and House Bill 384 were identical and faced no “voiced” opposition, but were stalled in committee through the legislative session, and did not carry over to the next year. What makes these bills interesting is not the fact that they would have provided the possibility of a magic bullet of protection for nudity at Little Beach, but that the organized naturist (nudist) lobby did not wish to see them passed because they were written as exemptions to laws defining lewd behavior. Naturists didn’t want to have nudity sullied with the word lewd even if it followed the phrase “exempted from prosecution for.” The facts boil down to this about being naked on Little Beach: The laws, including case law and judicial commentary are such that it is almost impossible to find a basis for citation or arrest of nude people on this particular stretch of sand as long as their only offense would be their nudity. The situation just doesn’t support an intention to “affront.” As Dr. Leisure says, “by the 1993 law, your appearance may ‘alarm’ someone, but it must not ‘affront.’ Remember the operative word is ‘intentionally.’ It is not your fault if you are well endowed and the very sight of it makes people shudder.” So, to strip or not to strip. At Little Beach, it looks like the laws, the courts, and the other beach-goers are all on the strip side. Until Maxwell, Na Kupuna or the developers orchestrate new laws, you’re safe. Well, not safe, you probably still need sunscreen.

About the rest of Maui When you are anywhere other than Little Beach, the rules are not so accommodating, but they’re not so bad either. All the general details about intentionally causing alarm or affront apply; it’s just a lot harder to claim you didn’t intend to alarm anyone if you stroll into a café or grocery store naked. On federal land - National Parks - the only detailed rules about nudity were written in the course of closing a nude beach on the Big Island. They say you must cover with a fully opaque covering your genitals, your pubic area, your

rectal area and, if you are a woman, your breasts downward from “a point immediately above the aureole.” That means, in effect, no pink or any part of the breast below the nipple is to be visible. In public places that are neither Little Beach nor a National Park, again, the alarming and affronting restrictions apply. Certainly, there are at least a couple of laws that could be used to cite or arrest a person whose genitals were visible, and the courts have made it clear that they would accept the implication that a “reasonable person” would have been affronted as sufficient grounds for prosecution and a guilty verdict. Nothing specific could be found in the law or commentary about breasts or butts, but there are two ways to think about your choices. One, you could go with the National Park rule described above. It makes room for even the skimpiest (other than string-style) thong bikini, even if there could be some debate over the exposure of the non-pink breast skin below the nipple. Or two, you could go with the standards actually written into law for photographs and other depictions. Your thong won’t work under these restrictions because the fully opaque covering here must cover not the “rectal area” but the “buttocks.” What it comes down to is this, in the absence of a highly specific law, at least initially, the citing or arresting officer’s judgment will be supported concerning breasts and genitals, but only if he starts by giving you a warning and time to respond. The same can not be said for your butt. A photograph of a butt not opaquely covered is illegal in some cases, but not likely to result in prosecution under most circumstances. Off the beach however, an actual derriere not opaquely covered, while not mentioned in the law per se, is almost sure to be cited or result in arrest. Written commentary in the Hawaii Revised Statutes of 1993, §712-1211 (Displaying Indecent Matter) says, “while nudity and nearnudity now have gained wide acceptance many people would be affronted by a public display of the sort here prohibited.” Right, as we noticed, to display a picture of a naked ass is still taboo, despite whatever wide acceptance (even admiration) real flesh may get. Sadly, there is no way to say ‘this is OK and that is illegal’ with regard to nudity. Or, maybe that’s not so sad. It leaves room, in the event that anyone is deemed to have crossed the line, for them to argue that the line was indistinct. This is a defense that often works even if it does fly in the face of the old saw about ignorance of the law being no defense. Finally, on private property - even if the property is used for a publicly accessible business - don’t push it. If you are asked to cover up more or leave, put on some clothes or go. There are just too many criminal and civil actions possible if you don’t. Similarly, if a police officer asks you to cover up or go to a different place, it is probably best to comply immediately. Even if your first thought is to report his overzealousness, your immediate response must not escalate the encounter. Just one degree off ordinary conversation with an officer - there are various assaults and failure-to-comply regulations just waiting to be broken. Don’t risk it. And, don’t forget the sunscreen.

Munro Wins Quiksilver Pro Trials Defending Quiksilver Pro Trials champion Luke Munro (Gold Coast, Aus) today proved superior for the second consecutive year, earning a wildcard spot into the US$250,000 World Championship Tour (WCT) main event. Earlier an official press launch held on-site welcomed all competitors and kicked off the 2003 Quiksilver & Roxy Pro in style. Munro, 20, fended off 11 other hopefuls to advance through the Quiksilver Pro Trials. Despite being the last surfer to qualify for the four-man final after a count back on his accumulative round-robin scores, the defending champ found form during the 30-minute decider. Having posted an 8.75 near the start, he kept closest rival Will Lewis at bay, as well as fellow Australians Todd Prestage and Ry Craike, respectively. He now faces reigning world champion Andy Irons (Haw) and Lee Winkler (Aus) in one of the most anticipated first round heats. "It doesn't really feel like two in a row, but more like I'm back to where I want to be," said Munro, on defending his title. "I wish there could have been two wildcards as Will is pretty much the best out at Snapper. I can't say how good he surfs out here, but to beat him is great. "It's a year down the track and my surfing has changed," he continued. "Hopefully it will reflect in my heats. Last year I took it way too seriously and ended up not surfing how I would have liked, but this year I'll hopefully stay relaxed and enjoy myself. I'm stoked going up against Andy. I can't wait." Former WCT surfer John Shimooka (Haw) hosted the capacity crowd of local

ASP 2003 WCT in Australia

Mark Occhilupo (Australia), Andy Irons (Hawaii), & Joel Parkinson (Australia) and international media, alongside many of the world's top rated surfers for the official event launch this morning. After explaining the addition of three expression sessions during the Quiksilver Pro, one for the Mitchell Surfing Foundation (MSF), another to highlight the talents of the ASP Masters competitors, as well as the newly created 'Foster's Expression Session', he addressed contestants of both the Quiksilver & Roxy Pro. Reigning world champion Andy Irons (Haw), who incidentally suffered a cut to the back of his head while free-surfing the Gold Coast last week, is anxious for the season to commence. The 24-year-old recently had February 13th (the day before Valentine's Day) named in his honor in Hawaii, though there will be no love lost as he battles each opponent throughout the tournament.

"I love coming to the Gold Coast," began Irons. "The waves are so fun and the talent is amazing here. I'm psyched and just trying to get in shape again. It's like a marathon surfing up here, with all the running and surfing, so I'm just trying to get comfortable with the waves and my equipment. To start off the year well here is always a good confidence booster. The talent is so deep I couldn't name the contenders for the crown this year." Defending Quiksilver Pro champion and world #2 Joel Parkinson (Aus), who was presented a special handmade painting by renowned Australian artist Peter Webb for his 2002 victory, spoke of his preparation for this year's event. "Hopefully the result will be the same," reasoned Parkinson. "I've been doing a lot of swimming and running. I'm ready for it again. I haven't been surfing a lot lately, as I wanted to be really hungry during the event. By the end of the contest you would have surfed so much, so I just tried to starve myself beforehand." 1999 world champion Mark Occhilupo (Aus) had the crowd laughing with his candid comments and speculation on being an expectant father. "There are some really good new guys on tour I've been checking out, but I've been surfing with Luke (Egan) a lot and he's been unbelievable," said Occhilupo. "There is a big range (in ages) on tour, so it'll be exciting. I think having a child will just inspire me more." Western Australian Jake Paterson, who took out the 2002 World Qualifying Series, offered his enthusiasm on the 'Torquay Time-Tunnel' award, whereby the longest tube rides during both the Quiksilver and Roxy Pro will be presented AUD$5,000 additional prize money. "What a bonus," said Paterson. "Five grand for getting kegged off your head... It's probably going to take 20 seconds to win it, but hopefully we'll get a stronger swell so you can get barreled from behind the rock (at Snapper) all the way through."

Five-time world champion Layne Beachley (Aus) was on hand to express her desire of getting 'back to work' in the Roxy Pro. The driven competitor entered the record books last year by becoming the first women to amass more than four world titles, though has her sights set even higher in 2003. "It's the best place to start the world tour, here in Australia at Snapper," began Beachley. "It's fabulous Roxy have picked up the first event of the year and I'm looking forward to getting back to work. I've told everyone that I want to win six world titles, but I'm not putting the pressure or expectations on myself that I have over the past five years. There's going to be a lot of challenges this year, so it's going to be a tough season." 2002 Rookie of the Year Chelsea Georgeson (Aus), who finished sixth overall, recently won her first professional event in the Roxy Pro World Qualifying Series (WQS) at Phillip Island (VIC, Aus) for as an ominous campaign indicator. "It was the first win I've had on the WQS and an awesome feeling," explained Georgeson. "Last year was a great experience surfing all the breaks, so I'm excited about going back everywhere more prepared. There's definitely going to be more of a push this year and hopefully I'll finish even higher." WCT newcomer Sofia Mulanovich (Peru), who actually eliminated Beachley during last year's Roxy Pro as a wildcard, now has the ability to stake her own claim on the ratings. "I'm happy to be here as the waves and people are great," said Mulanovich. "I've surfed a lot of 'CT contests before, but this is my first time on the tour so I'm just going to try hard and enjoy." Defending Roxy Pro champion Lynette MacKenzie (Aus) has her work cut out this year from the get go, facing young standouts Chelsea and Sofia in round one. The former Gold Coast resident reasons knowledge of the points is her best asset. "I lived up here for a couple of years and know exactly how to surf the point breaks," stated MacKenzie. "I'm just going to have fun and enjoy myself. I've got Chelsea and Sofia in my first heat, so it's pretty much the best heat of the draw. I like it hard first up, so it's great for me." Four-time world champion Lisa Andersen (USA) is the dark horse of the Roxy Pro, having been granted the wildcard spot. She faces Beachley and 2002 WQS champion Pauline Menczer (Aus) first up, but is happy just to be included. "I didn't know I was getting a wildcard until just a few weeks ago," admitted Andersen. "Out of any of the contests I'd probably rather be in this one as the waves are so fun. I'm stoked to be part of the event and am amping to surf." The Quiksilver & Roxy Pro will be based at Snapper Rocks from March 4th through to the 16th, and being mobile means they will utilize the best surf between North Stradbroke Is, Qld and Ballina in Northern NSW during the allotted waiting period. A decision will be made each morning by 7am (local time) as to the day's schedule, with details posted soon after.

Lisa Andersen Goes Hollywood Retirement is supposed to be relaxing. That is of course, unless you are Lisa Andersen. The four-time world surfing champion from Florida, has found that life after full-time competition can be just as hectic, if not more so, than it was before. In Queensland for the Roxy Pro where she has a wildcard entry, Andersen is actually relishing this one-off return to the women's World Championship Tour. "I don't know if I'd want to be competing this year full-time," said Andersen, "it's pretty tough out there with so many good surfers on the tour. I'm very happy with my life at the moment, but surfing a heat again is going to be fun, especially if we get some good waves out there. I didn't expect to get this wildcard, I figured they would give it to one of the younger girls. I was just going to come here anyway as (Lisa's partner) Paul's parents live here, and I just wanted to be amongst it all. Of all of the events, I would want this one the most.” But at the moment Andersen's number one focus is not winning heats, but looking after her two children, eight-year-old Erica and one-year-old Mason. "It's hard to leave home to go compete, and I couldn't do it full-time," said Lisa "The kids are great. They get along pretty good. One instigates the other, but Erica has been great, she helps me out a lot." Motherhood has certainly agreed with the 34-year-old, as she is in amazing shape and she feels her surfing is better than ever. "There's no real secret to it,” states Lisa. "It kind of took me a while this time around. I went on a boat trip two months later (after Mason's birth) and once you get older it definitely takes a little longer. I was 24 the first time around (with Erica) and

now it's a little different, I've got a bit less time to myself. But I stay active, the kids make sure of that, and I surf as often as I can." Although her children are Lisa's priority at the moment, there is no shortage of opportunities on the horizon for her... the least of which is a movie based on her life story. "I'm working with Warner Brothers on a movie," said Lisa. "It's still being worked on script-wise. It's on the backburner at the moment, it's been going on for seven years, and once it happens it happens." When your life story is being filmed, you generally assume that you've achieved everything you wanted to achieve. But it appears Lisa is adding new chapters all the time. "Yeah, it's a bit weird having your life story being made into a film. I still feel so young and like there's so much to do. The movie only spans up to my first world title," says Lisa, looking out over Snapper Rocks where she is due to surf against reigning champion Layne Beachley in round one, "otherwise we could go on forever." Andersen is happy her celebrated rivalry with Beachley and the attention and pressure it drew has simmered since Beachley eclipsed her record of four world titles, winning a fifth in December last year. "It's mellow, for sure. It's kind of good actually. It's great that Layne is in the spotlight, she deserves it so much. I've got so many things on myself at the moment that not having so much attention is kinda good." Apart from surfing as a wildcard, raising two kids, meeting sponsor commitments, directing surfing contests, making surf movies, filming her life story, and acting as a stunt double for Cameron Diaz in the new Charlie's Angels movie (Andersen surfs Pipeline in the role), life is "pretty mellow" for the smiling, relaxed Floridian. "I'm not looking too far ahead. I just want to go one year at a time. It's hard."

DININGFEATURE

BY MAT SEAVEY

For many years I’ve heard wonderful things about the Café O’lei family of restaurants without ever setting aside the time to discover them for myself. So today I make the drive south to the salty winds and invigorating views of Ma’alaea Harbor to have lunch at their flagship restaurant, the Ma’alaea Grill. I feel a welcome relief as I step through their doors, not only for the sudden cessation of wind but also for the spacious, comfortably designed dining room I get to spend my afternoon in. The restaurant is well designed, with tiered seating to give everyone a perfect panoramic look at Maui’s beautiful southern shore. The kitchen has a clean, professional look and the servers have an efficiently busy attitude about them. All signs seem to indicate a pleasurable dining experience ahead. The menu is an easy read with just the right combination of familiar favorites and exotic accents. What surprises me most is how cheap everything is. The entire menu of salads, sandwiches and entrees is priced under $10, with the exception of the Prime Rib Dip, which barely squeaks over at $10.95. Their luncheon salads start at $6.95 for the Caesar, which comes with Parmesan cheese, creamy garlic dressing, a garlic crostini and fresh romaine lettuce grown at Watanabe Farms. You can add a chicken breast for a dollar more or blackened Mahi for two extra. The Asian Salad sounds interesting with oriental vegetables, fresh mint, and Chinese noodles in a Sesame dressing

over organically farmed baby greens. Ma’alaea Grill also features a Curry Chicken Salad with Mango Curry dressing, a Taro Salad, and a Hot Chicken and Shrimp Salad with chicken strips and jumbo shrimp stirfried with chiles, peanuts, ginger, and vegetables served hot over cool baby greens with a ginger vinaigrette. Hot Chiles and peanuts sound like a winning combination to me, but we’re all going to get sandwiches and share a big salad, so I give in to peer pressure and choose the Quinoa Salad. I thought I was settling for something less, but I was wrong. The salad comes out in a large bowl with grilled eggplant, roasted sweet peppers and tomatoes, and crumbled goat cheese draped over and sliding down the sides of a mound of organic baby greens tossed with basil vinaigrette. The vegetables are full of herb-roasted flavor, especially the grilled eggplant with its rich, creamy texture. I love eggplant almost as much as I love goat cheese, a heavenly creation that surely had its origins in the larders of the gods. No kidding! The firm heartiness of Quinoa, a nutritionally rich grain originally grown by the Incas high in the Andes Mountains, plays perfect counterpoint to the rich undertones of goat cheese and roasted vegetables. My wife’s Roast Turkey Breast Sandwich is served on twelve-grain bread with alfalfa sprouts, avocado, tomato, lettuce, and Dijon mustard. You can’t, and shouldn’t try to, reinvent a classic comfort food like this; all you can ask for is fresh ingredients, and this sandwich certainly has them. The infamous Roxanne, our lunch date today, has the Crab Salad Club, with bacon, avocado, tomato, and greens on Foccacia bread. It’s good and satisfying in a

non-exceptional kind of way. I know because I helped her finish it after cleaning my plate and nearly everything else on the table. I hope this job comes with a health plan. My Seared Ahi Sandwich is impressive with a thick slab of perfectly seared ahi and wasabi mayonnaise on foccacia.

not much beyond that, a trick I’ve used once or twice in my cooking career. But at $9.95 a plate with a fresh, crisp Caesar salad on the side, I’m not complaining.

Visit them at the shops by the Maui Ocean Center between 10:30 and 3:00 for lunch or 5:30 to 9:00 for dinner. They also have locations at 839 Front St. in Lahaina, 2051 Main St. in Wailuku, and 3669 Baldwin Ave. in Makawao.

WINE OF THE

WEEK

BY ANTHONY MOORE

Enotria

‘99 Delcetto - Mendocino $10.99 Enotria’s ‘99 Delcetto is the wine of the week. Delcetto usually is the type of wine the Italians drink as an everyday drinking wine, described as "little sweetie". Not as big and full bodied as some of its Piedmont counterparts, the scruffy and manly Barolos and Barbarescos, the Delcetto is a softer wine that pairs up well with many types of food. Enotria, translating to “land of wine”, is an Italian family owned winery from Mendocino. Originally from northern Italy, Piemonte region, this label focuses on the Piedmont varieties. These varietals, mostly brought to the us in suitcases, thrive in the cooler climate regions of northern California’s Mendocino County. This Californian-made wine is aged in oak for eighteen months and has a bright purple color. It shows ripe plum on the palate, with a nice soft but firm tannin structure. This wine can age for a couple years but is mainly made to drink now. Enjoy! visit: www.enotria.com

Remember my Heart "When I'm gone, I hope people say, ‘she was a nice person.' If they don't remember any of my music, that's okay. I just want them to remember my heart." I am quite sure that many people will not only remember Gail Swanson's heart, but you can bet they will remember the deep and profound lyrics that she writes and sings. That's where Gail's music comes from - straight from her heart. "My whole family was musical,” said Gail, “everyone played some instrument." Her mom, who sings and plays the guitar, taught Gail her first chords. "We'd get together and have family hootenannies!” said Gail. “That's what my dad called them." Gail was the only one who pushed her talents to a professional level. Born and raised in Chicago, Gail fell in love with Maui while vacationing here and has made it her home for the past 16 years. Along with learning how to play guitar, at the age of nine Gail was also studying the classical flute in school. "I was really into it and I loved playing in the school band," said Gail. When she got into high school, she stopped playing the flute for a while until someone handed her a Jethro Tull rock flute album. After listening to it, she realized playing "rock stuff" on the flute would be a lot of fun. She didn't get serious about music until 8 years ago. Not only was stage fright a problem, but she admits she never thought she could sing and still gets blown away when people refer to her as a singer. "I used to sing in the car with Bonnie Raitt and tried to sound like her," said Gail. The first time Gail appeared on a stage was in an "all-girl" band called the Double Takes. She sang backup while playing rhythm guitar. Unfortunately, problems with a bad relationship caused Gail to walk away from music for about 6 years. "When the problems disappeared I really started getting serious about my music again. I'll

never walk away now!" exclaimed Gail. In 1996 Gail read a book called “Get Off Your Butt And Do It”, which helped to inspire her. "The book suggested that you make a wish list," said Gail. “I knew I wanted to make a CD so I called this real nice guy named Tommy Hall who had a local studio." She honestly told Tommy that she didn't know what she was doing and didn't even have but a few songs written nor connections with any musicians. "I sat down and wrote some songs, then booked the time and just did it. I wouldn't have been able to without Tommy's help," said Gail. Putting her CD out taught Gail a lot about the music business. She researched several music-publishing companies on the web and sent her CD out to about 20 of them. A publisher named Christy Jackson got in touch with her and offered her a Nashville-based publishing deal where she will be pitching one of her songs, "Standing On The Bridge", to several country artists. Her life-long dream is to have major label artists record her song. Christy has not only become a close friend, but she also helped Gail produce her fourth and latest CD, “Living In A Movie”, which was released in July 2002, and features special guests Willie Nelson and Patrick Simmons of the Doobie Brothers. This CD has won the prestigious Hawaiian music award, "Na Hoku Hanohano”, for best rock album of the year (Hawaiian Academy of Recording Artists). In addition to this award, she has deservedly won five other accolades for her heart-warming music. Through the help of some friends five years ago, Gail had the outrageous opportunity to open for Willie Nelson at a restaurant & saloon called Charley's in Paia. They have been friends ever since. "When I asked Willie if he would sing with me on one of my songs,” said Gail, “I almost started crying when he said yes. Pat and Willie are both a tremendous inspiration to me musically and as human beings. They are incredibly humble and thankful of their gifts and I cherish their friendship more than I can say." While maintaining a large and loyal fan base

in Hawaii, she gets a lot of help from her regional fan clubs and street teams who support her "alternative folk/rock" acoustic shows when she entertains on the mainland. "Kealii Reichel and Fred Kraus have both been a tremendous inspiration and help to me in the Hawaiian music scene and I would like to thank them for their support," said Gail. As if Gail isn't busy enough, she recently became the co-author of a book called “Chicken Soup For The Music Lover's Soul” (she originated the title). She connected with Jack Canfield, who is the co-author along with Mark Victor-Hansen of the "Chicken Soup" book series, through Eve Hogan, a good friend of hers. It doesn't surprise me to hear that Gail has earned the title "rock-chick with a heart of gold." She is the founder of "Dream To Make a Difference", a non-profit organization that raised $17,000 for Hawaii AIDS Foundation at a concert in 2000. Pat Simmons, his wife Cris, and Gail have gotten together to come up with "Pat & Gail's Local Licks," a benefit concert that will be held on March 29, Saturday, at Seabury Hall, of which the proceeds will be donated to the Seabury Hall Music Program. Because the benefit sold out in 2 hours last year, a second benefit at Hapa's in Kihei will be presented on Sunday, March 30. This year Pat and Gail are joined by legendary artist Norton Buffalo, multi-Hoku winner Barry Flanagan and Maui singer/songwriter Steve Sargenti. Look for details on Gail's website <www.gailswanson.com>. You can also join Gail's mailing list for up & coming events by e-mailing her at gail@gail swanson.com.

ALO’HA Thursday (tonight!) at Hapa’s in Kihei, Saturday at Casanova in Makawao. Another import funk fusion band from California, ALO creates a blissful blend of trance backbeats with groovy keyboards, poppin’ funky basslines, and Steely-Dan-smooth vocals. They sound pretty damn good, and I am pleased to report that they are not your typical “wish-it-was-Jerry jam band knockoff,” but rather, co-exist in the happy-medium world of bohemians and urbanites alike.

BRAZIL FEST IN IRISH PUB 8pm Friday at Mulligan’s in Kihei. The Brazilian Carnaval “Carna Penta” 2003 brings you Sensasamba featuring Dandara with Capoeira and DJ Elmar. Come shake your thang and sip on a Brazilian Caipirinha (it’s a drink, not a sexy Brazilian girl okay) or two, and chase it down with a creamy Guinness. Ew, or not. But definitely come see.

FRIDAY’S ENCORE Gomega Fest at Maui Brews in Lahaina. This is a great opportunity for you to witness the diversity of our musical talent on Maui in this eclectic showcase of artists ranging from Jawaiian to Hard Metal. Last week, I was blown away by the rap skills of Desmond D, Hev B Wyld, and Demune, especially when Demune and Gomega took the stage to combine their power - it was pure poetry. And Khrinj has never sounded better - it warms my heart (or something) to hear those guys rock so hard and so naturally. One band missing off the bill this week but deserves mention is Crowd - a truly gifted punk band that seemingly came from nowhere, but I’ll be sure to watch for them next time. And so should you.

TELEVANGELISTS ARE FUN Tartuffe Born Again, thru Sunday at Iao Theater. Final weekend to see Maui OnStage’s hilarious play about religious hypocrisy - so see it!

FILM

Even if Jet Li didn't spend most of his fight scenes with his left hand stuck inexplicably in his pocket while he does a "I can beat you with one arm tied behind my back” routine, "Cradle 2 The Grave" would still be a nightmare of illconceived genre melding. Given that director Andrzej Bartkowiak ("Romeo Must Die") worked as cinematographer on such respectable films as Sidney Lumet's "The Verdict" and John Huston's "Prizzi's Honor", it implies that he would have a better eye for scripts than this action cliché miasma under a thick coat of plastically sentimental dialogue. Rap embarrassment DMX couldn't act wet in a rainstorm as thief/caring father Tony Fait. To make matters worse, Tony has a penchant for incurring a chant of "faith" from his minions when he isn't praying insipidly about angels to his 9-year-old daughter. The best moment in the movie comes early on when Taiwanese Government Agent Su (Jet Li) breaks into a bad guy's high-rise beachfront apartment by dropping from balcony to balcony, many stories above the ground. The camera pulls back to record the dangerous scale of the feat, and the effect is a breathtakingly exciting moment of physical derring-do. But the film never again hits such a high note of excitement, thanks mainly to a lack of focus on Li's character. We see Su employ his lightening-fast martial arts skill to devastate villain after villain with one hand and two feet flying, but never get an explanation about why we're being short-changed in the fighting department. It seems probable that Li hurt his left hand during filming, and the production was forced to continue in spite of the problem. But audiences go to Jet Li films to see the master do battle at top form. So it's a double insult to fans that Li is made to share protagonist duties and he isn't even fit to fight with both hands. Tony Fait (DMX) is a diamond burglar working with a talented but undisciplined group of hoods to steal a collection of precious "black diamonds". But when the thieves, including one gorgeous Gabrielle Union as Daria, expertly blow a hole in a giant vault filled with hundreds of locked drawers, they don't even know which com-

partment to heist. Luckily for them, they blunder into the right drawer before much time has past, but it brings into question the competence of the crew. The suddenly relevant black Asian stones are also being sought by the evil Ling (Mark Dacascos "Brotherhood of the Wolf"), who was Su's former partner in Taiwan before turning bad with a capital "B". Ling soon kidnaps Fait's daughter Vanessa (Paige Hurd) to ransom the stones from Fait, who has recently joined forces with Su. The ransomed daughter device is pathetically employed to mitigate the fact that Tony is a thieving scum riding on Su's coattails of legitimacy, and to similarly obscure the chasm of talent differences between DMX and Li. The search and rescue mini-plot expands however barely when it's revealed that the stones are actually synthetic plutonium being auctioned off to a gathering of international arms dealers offering "five million dollars" per stone. The auction scene forfeits a perfect opportunity at satire, considering how much of the world's "illegal arms" are made and sold to countries like Iraq by the U.S. military. For an idea of where that scene could have gone, check out Malcolm McDowell as a young British salesman in Lindsay Anderson's nearly brilliant "O Lucky Man" (1973). Tom Arnold ("Animal Factory") adds much needed comic spice as a Los Angeles small-arms dealer who sweats greedy beads of Republican war hunger with a fitting devilmay-care approach to the role. But it's Mark Dacascos as Ling who steals the movie with his exotic looks and experienced fighting skill. The film's laughable "ring of fire" climax between Su and Ling is made palatable by Dacascos' believability at being a wellsuited opponent for Li. That's not to say that director Andrzej Bartkowiak knows the first thing about staging and filming fight scenes, but you can see the germ of possibilities between the two fighters given a proper setting for their skills. Dacascos is a better actor than Jet Li, and they enhance one another whenever they share the screen. The possibility that these two may face off again in a better movie may be the only saving grace "Cradle 2 The Grave" has to offer.

DIFFICULTLISTENING

BY TANG LI WHEEBS & THE MOLE

KAADA: THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME YOUR VALUABLE TIME (Ipecac, www.ipecac.com) Straight out of Norway comes Ipecac Records' most accessible release to date. It's a fun mish-mash of 50’s, 60’s and 70’s pop sounds filtered and sewn together through modern production techniques and makes an engaging listen. Playful and catchy with a bit of soul, this record sounds quite different than almost anything out there today and was named one of the most important album releases in Norway in 2001. I guess we will soon see how this album fares over here in the states. He also scores films and is the youngest person (at 26) to have won the prestigious Golden Clapboard award at the Norwegian International Film Festival. Seems like he is bound to have a fruitful career ahead of him. [Tang Li Wheebs] This is pretty cool music. I like it. We watched this guy's music video too - it was really nice. [The Mole]

AWOL ONE & DADDY KEV: SLANGUAGE (Mush Records, www.dirtyloop.com) This album is a smorgasbord of sounds and words, all mixed up into a chaotic yet musical album. For about a third of the album, Daddy Kev plays live drums while Awol One rambles on about things that I don't understand. The rest of the album is comprised of relatively more traditional song structures, featuring lots of upbeat melody samples, punchy drums, and end expertly performed turntable scratches courtesy of D-Styles. Tying it all together is the infectiously simple and melodic vocal delivery of Awol One. Even though the guy tends to write cryptic lyrics dealing with ambiguous subjects such as cutting off one's own tongue, he's managed to amass a pretty decent following, probably due to his unique and accessible rapping voice. Even though there are points on Slanguage where the music gets pretty weird, it remains digestible due to Awol. This is a cool album - I recommend it. [The Mole] One of loosest hip hop albums that I have ever heard and that is a good thing. Lots of space and a rather fun flow make this album a treat to experience. [Tang Li Wheebs].

LAMPLIGHTER: THREE POINT PERSPECTIVE (Woodson Lateral, www.woodsonlateral.com) Lamplighter is a trio of Northwest Musicians (including one Choncey Langford, who spent his early music years growing up here on Maui) who make music that is a wonderful blend of atmospheric drum ’n bass, ambient tones and glitchy meanderings. It differs from a lot of modern beatscapes in the fact that all the music is song-oriented rather than just based around the samples or the dance floor. Perfect for a rainy day or late night work session, it's kept varied in a sort of slow to mid tempo range. I also like the fact that an electronic group can have a handful of short tracks (songs, not just interludes) and not feel like they have to cut and paste their compositions until they get wrongly repetitive and predictable. I can’t wait to see what their live show entails when I visit Seattle in a couple of weeks. [Tang Li Wheebs] Pretty nifty. Thumbs up. [The Mole]

JOE RATH: OVERWHELMED (independent, www.joerath.cjb.net) Joe Rath has turned towards the dark side for his new album, dredging up all his past demons and closet skeletons for the rest of the world to experience. The lyrics contained on Overwhelmed are so personal and boldly stated that listening to it is almost like reading someone's diary - someone with lots of self-esteem issues and unresolved past relationships. The music on this album, compared to Rath's last one, He Meant Well, is more abrasive and dramatic, perfectly complementing the lyrics. I challenge anyone to stay unaffected while this guy works his way up from a subtly melodic vocal flow to a hoarse yell, while distorted electric guitars join in to punctuate his tales of suicidal girlfriends and other depressing stories. Listening to this album, as well as Joe Rath's other releases, gives you a pretty clear glimpse of his life, which is cool. It makes you sort of feel like you know the guy, and you feel sorry for him. But you could probably make him happier if you e-mail him at <joerath13@hotmail.com> and tell him that you'd like to purchase his new album - that's the only way you can get it. [The Mole] Send music to be reviewed to: Mole & Wheebs; 34 Ai St; Makawao, HI 96768. The Mole hitchhikes so look out for him on the road. Also he's the owner of Motion Recordings (www.motionrecordings.com). Tang Li Wheebs can make any girl fall in love with him if he really wants (www.snailonastick.com).

ADVICEGODDESS KOZMICBREEZE BY AMY ALKON

CARPE DO IT ALREADY I'm a guy who's had a female best friend for years. The other night, after a few drinks, we ended up getting physical and talking for hours. I told her how I've always felt about her - more than best-friendly feelings. Well, it turns out the feelings are extremely mutual. This is great, except that she's engaged. Her fiancé is a guy who's always traveling for his job. I get the feeling she's not exactly happy about only seeing him every few weeks. It's been five days, and we still haven't talked about that night. I have no idea what to do. Any suggestions? Still Spineless After All These Years Draw a little face on your index finger, and Scotch tape a little dryer lint on top. (That's you.) Next, draw a little face on your other index finger. Scotch tape a bigger clump of dryer lint on this one, preferably in a chic bouffant. (That's her.) No, I'm not kidding. Using finger puppets to get your message across might come up short in sophistication, but, in effectiveness, it beats a vow of silence... hands down. Considering that you've been panting after this girl for years – total news to her, it seems - telepathy hasn't worked too well for you either. Maybe you've been waiting to be called on - a good move if you're a second-grader, angling to go home with a gold star on your forehead. Eventually, you should be invited to say something. Wait long enough, and the invitation will come from a guy in a minister suit, calling across the pews for you to "speak now, or forever put a sock in it." This would be an appropriate moment for you to voice an objection. If, however, you're into results-oriented communication, you'd be wise to unwire your jaw long before there's a lot of forward motion down the aisle in a big white dress, plus 3,000 guests who have crossed four time zones on a mule to watch this girl become Mrs. Somebody Else. To kick-start your courage, visualize times when you manage to speak up in your own behalf, like when you're about to board El Thrifto Airline, and you spot the last food for 5,500 miles that isn't a quarter-ounce bag of peanuts. Surely, you find the will to blurt out, "Whopper...p-p-please! And make mine a double." You DO manage to say something...don't you? Or, do you just stand mute at the register, staring purposefully into the eyes of the girl in the paper hat, until she finally yells, "Sir...I said, EITHER SPEAK UP OR STEP ASIDE!" That's what it comes down to here: Speak up or step aside. What's stopping you? Maybe you've heard that the meek are supposed to inherit the earth. Well, the place should be a real ball of laughs after the assertive take off with all the women. Maybe you're terrified that you'll be crushed by rejection - maybe so completely crushed that you'll end up one of those little black tar splotches on the sidewalk, forever getting resquashed under the soles of apathetic pedestrians. Of course, if you didn't favor the entirely unsuccessful nonverbal method of asking women out, you might have learned that "crushing rejection" is merely a figure of speech, and those black dots are used chewing gum dropped by uncouth people. I'm not denying that rejection can be heavy. Still, there's really nothing quite so flattening as the weight of the champagne glass you lift to toast to your friend's eternal bliss with some other guy.

CLASSIFIED

BY KOZMIC KEV

ARIES: Revive your imagination. Try using your left hand for a week if you are right-handed or visa versa. Your karma, your subconscious, and your manifestations of the past year will take center stage. Career changes are possible. TAURUS: The life of a socialite is yours if you're willing to play it that way. Being friendly is to your advantage. You add beauty to your work environment. When freedom comes your way you need to run like the wind. GEMINI: Football season is over and so is the windsurfing contest. Finding a healthy way to express your aggression is of utmost importance. Be sure to express your good points when going to an interview. Win people over with your verbal skills and be nice to your ex-lovers. CANCER: With the sophistication of a world traveler you know how to understand exotic information. Enjoying water sports and hanging out near natural bodies of water will soothe your soul. Learning to hula or learning to speak Hawaiian comes naturally. LEO: Changes begin to gain momentum in your life. You're horny, willing and able yet you're concerned with maintaining control. The place of control is a lonely place. Learn to delegate responsibilities. Help comes to you from unexpected places. VIRGO: Release comes easier to you this week. Many obsessions will be dropped. Take on a new outlook towards life. Become the person that you look up to. Compliment someone that you normally don't care for. See the positive in your enemies. LIBRA: Keeping your nose to the grindstone is a good idea at this time. Your work ethic is stronger than usual. You're interested in improving your health. Being charitable to those less fortunate than you will help you gain moral strength. SCORPIO: It's a good week for being a gangster of love. You have the gift of being able to make truth funnier than fiction. Your inner child needs to go out and play. You'll find love while taking a stroll through the neighborhood. SAGITTARIUS: Peculiar ambitions are not to be discounted if they help the family. Taking time to meditate at home will help you center yourself. Family members may need to be confronted as to what their responsibilities are. Dreams take on a life of their own. CAPRICORN: You'll find a way to be a better neighbor. You will feel a part of a small community. Much is viewed in a poetic sense. Bust out a rhyme. Break into a beat. The art of the soul is the art of the street. Personal drive is making you a dynamo. AQUARIUS: You're likely to be somewhat preoccupied with gadgets and fixing things. Material acquisitions are of your prime concern. Finances will improve. You may have to pay to get paid. The fool and his money are soon partying. PISCES: Renewal continues as you emerge awake to a new day. Do a ritual that affirms freshness. This can be done by dipping into the ocean or by planting a garden. You are ready for adventure and risk taking. Radical viewpoints come to the surface. HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Michael Eisner 3/7/42, Kerr Smith 3/9/72, Norman Blake 3/10/38 For comments and questions <kozmickev@sunset.net>
