Are You an Authentic Mauian? Take our handy quiz and find out! The word “Mauian” is thrown around a lot, but what does it actually mean? Is it just another word for local, or does it also include transplants and time-share owners? How long does someone have to live on Maui before he or she is a real Mauian? Who knows, and more importantly, who cares? Just answer the following questions and then add up your score. Good luck! 1. The most awe-inspiring thing about Maui is… Pe’ahi (Jaws) when the monster waves are rolling in. (4) The Hawaiian burial ground out front of the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua.

This goes out to the bartender who got me trashed on a special evening. So special, that I got a new nickname out of it: “Butt Plug.” Yeah, yeah, laugh it up, everyone. Here’s what happened: I went home that night and passed out in my shower, clogging the drain with my ass. I woke up to find my bathroom and kitchen floor covered in six inches of water! Do you have any idea how long that took to clean? So I figure that it’s only fair if you paid a visit to my bar, you bastard. Hey, Jack shots will be on me!

Kahale’s Beach Club

Hanging at the Mana Foods bulletin board

Food Cops The following tale is taken straight from official complaints and inspection reports on file with the State of Hawaii Department of Health Food Safety office.

Establishment McDonald’s

Location 340 Dairy Rd., Kahului

Date Sept. 1, 2004

Time 2:15 p.m. A mother, her son and another boy were eating at McDonald’s when “her son found two hairs in his French Fries and the ‘other boy’ ate a hair in his ‘nuggets,’” reported the health department sanitarian. The report went on to state that, “The complainant noticed a girl preparing the food had thick, long black hair in a ponytail over her shoulder touching the food.” The complainant then talked to the manager, but returned later that afternoon. When she did, she found the girl’s hair was now braided and placed on her back. On Sept. 1, the Sanitation Department called the manager in regard to the complaint and was told the girl’s hair was braided and in a cap. A week later, the sanitarian spoke to the assistant of the owner who denied that the employee in question handled “fries or nuggets.” The assistant said the girl was “stationed at the sandwich makeup table” and that all employees have hair restrained with caps or rubber bands. The owner was then contacted, informed of the complaint and told to “remind employees of hair restraints.” -Lauren Dahl

I’m standing in front of the bulletin board at Mana Foods in Paia. The board is the best thing about Mana. It serves as a community magnet—I think if you stand there for five hours straight, you can see everyone who lives around here. I have been here about 15 minutes. A punk rock girl with Hasidic peyots schleps a large bag filled entirely with what looks like parsley to a forlorn Ford Festiva. The word “difficult” is written on her wife beater in old English script. An elderly woman in a purple windbreaker solemnly eats her yogurt with a plastic spoon. She

Here’s one—says smoke pot get paid! rocks back and forth in a trancelike daze. A couple stumbles outside. The girl is carrying a guitar, while the guy has a large, filthylooking carrot. Nothing else, just the carrot. They are both wearing Phish t-shirts and are furiously scratching their bellies. “Hey brothers,” asks the carrot carrier gravely, “do any of you have any pure Am-airuh-cuhn tobacco?” “Naw, man, we ain’t got nuthin’ American,” one guy says. “Yeah, right on,” carrot guy responds. “China, bro. China!” Some of the bigger women wear what look like muumuus. Big beards are vogue but any kinda hair is popular. I see bushy red Unabomber beards, long straight hair in ponytails, bouncy, curly black Jewish Girl hair and dreadlocks thick like the cables that tie supertankers to the dock. One black guy I saw had a chrome dome with miniature braids hanging down from the back and sides of his head like icicles. Some people are wearing big hats with all their hair stuffed in. They look like giant bubbles stacked precariously atop their heads. I catch someone mid-lecture: “…I mean, because that’s the cost, like, of the War on Drugs,” he says. “Imagine if like, all the people that were gonna buy an ounce of weed were like, ‘I’m abouts to buy an ounce of gold?’ Do you know what that would do to the system? If we had gold, then it’d be like, ‘oh, we got money, OK? So now what,’ you know? The government doesn’t want that. That’s what the War on Drugs does…” I start listening to everyone. “According to a particular yogi, the oil in the whale’s body…” one kid says. “No war for oil, man,” says another. “Fuck.” “No, dude. Listen, the oil in the whale’s

body aligns with certain stars and you, you know, commensurate ideas when you have contact with the whales…” “Does anyone know Dolphin Dave?” one girl asks no one in particular. ‘The whale oil and the stars achieve perfect alignment because some ideas are actually rooted in cosmic-oceanic harmony,” the first kid concludes grandly. “Thas right, man,” says his friend. “All about harmony.” “Fuck Bush.” “I am gonna move to Canada,” one woman announces. “Why?” asks another. “I don’t like this government,” she says. “This cell phone makes like, cosmic sounds,” says a squatting middleaged woman in a lurid turquoise leotard pantsuit. “I don’t know if I entirely like that. I get the feeling that it is messing with my chi.” MTW

The Jan. 24, 2004 minor decoy sting on Kahale’s Beach Club in Kihei cost the bar a 10-day suspension. Bartender Veronica Murphy served an undercover under-21-year-old, and that was that. But unlike most stings, this one was strange. In fact, it was weird from the very beginning. According to the statement Murphy made to LC Officer James Kendrick a few minutes after the sting went down, she saw the decoy sit near her at the bar. “She had just finished meeting with a liquor officer and thought everything was okay,” Kendrick wrote. “The male, [NAME DELETED] sat at the bar less than 1-2 minutes after the liquor officer departed and the officer ‘must have seen’ [NAME DELETED], so she thought the male [NAME DELETED] was ‘okay,’ stating it as ‘obviously he was okay.’” At no point in his report does Kendrick mention this mysterious LC officer again or why he had been “meeting” with a bartender moments before the department was going to perform a sting on her. Nor does he identify the officer—his report lists only himself and then-LC Chief Enforcement Officer Bill Pacheco as participating in the sting. Pacheco, who is also a U.S. Army Reserve officer, left the department in August when his unit got orders for Iraq. During the Nov. 9, 2004 Adjudication Board hearing, owner George Brinner raised additional questions. Murphy, who’d only worked for him for two weeks when LC dropped in, suddenly went back to work for her previous employer after the sting. Brinner described the employer as his “competitor.” “This is a really tough one,” he told the Board. “It seems we need help from the Liquor Control Department. I don’t know how we could have kept [it] from happening.” Then he railed against the LC for not pulling Murphy’s official Manager’s Card as a result of her conduct during the sting. Board Chairman Shigeto “Mustard” Murayama responded that the Liquor Commission itself was considering a new policy that would—in addition to the owners—drop the hammer on any employees caught violating liquor laws.

EH BRAH! TALK IS CHEAP SEND YOUR EH BRAH TO ehbrah@mauitime.com

MAUICOUNTY WEDNESDAY, NOV. 24 Think the scariest thing about the recent election was George W. “I like Presidentin!” Bush’s big victory? Not even close, says a great piece posted on Slate.com today. Nope, that distinction is found in our great state of Hawaii. Remember those four constitutional amendments that everybody thought were so cute and loveable? You know, the ones that took away so many of our due process protections that I dubbed them “The Four Amendments of the Apocalypse (Nov. 28, 2004)?” Well, one writer thinks they’re the beginning of the end of civil liberties and court protections in this nation. “It should be of tremendous concern that constitutional amendments designed to curtail fundamental rights are being passed in a fairly liberal state,” wrote David Feige, a Bronx public defender who was clearly scared by the fact that we, Hawaii—a state that supposedly is run by liberals—voted them in so overwhelmingly. “Taken together, Hawaii’s four amendments are likely to radically change the administration of criminal justice on the islands and portend a potentially significant shift around the country, as police and prosecutors are again emboldened to attempt to curtail previously sacrosanct state constitutional protections.” You said it, brother… The Maui County Council handed developer Kent Smith his hat again. Yup, no Pu’unoa Village this year. Of course, the real big news was that Council Member G. Riki Hokama turned against his pro-development buddies Dain Kane, Joseph Pontanilla and Mike Molina. Very strange action—unless, you know, Hokama wants to start a new council majority that backs him—and not Kane—as chairman.

THURSDAY, NOV. 25 Celebrated Thanksgiving the old-fashioned way: Ono fish tacos and Coronas at Leilani’s in Ka’anapali. Hey! If the Pilgrims landed on Black Rock instead of Plymouth Rock, they wouldn’t have done any different.

FRIDAY, NOV. 26 You know what would be really sweet? If the old American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) got into the act on these ridiculous state constitutional amendment things. I mean, isn’t litigating exactly that kind of nonsense what they do?

major, just wanted to show him a few things that don’t even appear in Maui Revealed. Drove for a time on the Pi’ilani Highway along the backside of Maui—not as far as Kaupo, but just far enough so he could experience good, solid 19th century pavement. Anyway, we stopped at the cliffs overlooking Huakini Bay, which is about as starkly beautiful and forbidding as you can find on this rock. Peering over the cliffs, it was nice to see ancient Hawaiian ruins among the gray and black rocks on the shore. What wasn’t so nice was trying to explain to him why there were so many rusted, wrecked cars lying down there as well. Look, I don’t want to start any trouble or anything, but that’s jacked up… You know, it isn’t everyday you see such a wildly irresponsible and flagrantly sensational headline like today’s “Airport jammed with cars” in The Maui News. Why they buried this stunner on page A3 is beyond me. The story is filled with gut-wrenching revelations like the fact that yesterday was “considered the busiest shopping day of the year but proving also to be the heaviest travel day of the year.” Astonishingly, reports the byline-less piece, is the news that “all 1,100 parking stalls at the Kahului Airport were filled Friday.” Incredible! Officials had to open a vacant lot to satisify the demand!

ACLU chapter has filed suit against state constitutional Amendment 1, which dumped the old “unanimous jury” requirement where continuing conduct of sexual assault was concerned. “A sad trend has emerged in Hawaii where our constitution has become a target for diminishing rights rather than a beacon for protecting them,” ACLU attorney Earle A. Partington told the AP… You know, The Maui News has been a treasure trove lately. In fact, today they’ve also got the best headline/deck combination I’ve seen in a long time on page A4—“Seized monkey heads for zoo: But nightclub gets to keep three others on display.” Now why a zoo would settle for just having monkey heads is questionable, sure, but any nightclub that gets to have three (3!) monkey heads on display has got to be the coolest place on Earth… Just got a release from Maui Community College’s Department of Science and Technology about a big World AIDS Day event they’re having this Thursday. Lessseeee, Dean Wong of the Maui AIDS Foundation will speak, that should be good. And, oh, Christopher Raymond of MCC will discuss AIDS around the world. That’s cool. And, let’s see, MCC Chancellor Clyde Sakamoto will give some introductory remarks. Looks like some local musicians will show up, too. Yup, it should be a pretty solid show—wait a sec, Miss Hawaii 2004 Olena Rubin will also be there?! You know, I can’t think of why I missed her name when I first read through the release. After all, her name was bolded and underlined—I really should have noticed that first off. Anyway, I thought Miss Hawaii 2004 Olena Rubin was all busy pushing Alternative Dispute Resolution or whatever? Such multi-tasking abilities show she truly deserves her title.

MONDAY, NOV. 29 Not to keep throwing salt in the whole Bush-stole-Florida-and-the-rest-of-the-election wounds, but today’s Maui News is running an AP story on how the Miami Herald— how’s that for sourcing!—recounted a handful of north Florida counties that have majority Democratic Party registrations but who voted overwhelmingly for Dubya. It certainly seems strange, but the Herald apparently found that Bush really did win those counties. Look, it stinks, but the best thing the 55 million Americans who voted for John Kerry can do is focus on ways to keep Bush from privatizing Social Security, passing a painfully regressive Flat Tax, sinking a forest of oil wells in Alaska, nominating cavemen to the Supreme Court and waging war on Iran. Sound like a plan? Now get to it.

TUESDAY, NOV. 30 I hope this isn’t one of those bad omens, but the National Weather Service has officially recognized Maui County as a “Tsunami Ready” county. This comes on the heels of the county already holding a “Storm Ready” designation. County officials said they’re already working on winning “Apocalyse Ready” status sometime next year. MTW


NEWSOFTHEWEIRD IT’S A TOUGH JOB… “Anal-wart researcher” (visual inspection being the only way to detect anal cancer from the human papillomavirus) heads Popular Science magazine’s second annual November list of the worst jobs in science. However, “worm parasitologist” can be just as challenging, especially for anyone studying the Dracunculus medinensis (which can settle in humans to a length of three feet and then must be removed carefully after its thousands of offspring burst through the skin). Other contenders include “tampon squeezer” for the study of vaginal infections; a Lymedisease “tick attractor” (who must sing, to keep bears away, while trolling in the woods); and “monitors” at warm-climate landfills (where garbage has been reduced to steamy, liquid condensates).

SPIES LIKE US

DEMOCRACY INACTION Perhaps the strangest election result this year was in Orange County, California, where a school board seat went not to the favored establishment candidate but to unknown Steve Rocco, who never campaigned or even appeared in public. He did tell a friend after the election that he would appear at the board meeting on Dec. 9. Among the little information known about him: According to the Los Angeles Times, his candidate registration included one page of “densely typed text cut and pasted togeth-

er, and filled with rambling prose.” Also, several years ago he hosted a 17-episode interview series on public-access TV while wearing dark glasses.

MMMM… LAVISH In November, four University of Memphis basketball players, who share an apartment on campus, reported a break-in. According to the police report obtained by WPTY-TV, the items missing included $6,000 worth of shoes, $4,000 of custom-made shirts, $6,000 of trousers and $40,000 of mink coats.

MACGYVER WOULD HAVE BEEN PROUD Colin Hancock, a convicted drug dealer serving time in Perth Prison in Scotland, filed a lawsuit in October, asking the equivalent of about US$55,000 because of an improper rectal exam given by a prison physician. In his defense, Dr. Alexander MacFarlane said the only lubricant the prison had on hand was milk from a bowl of porridge.

OOPS! In August, a pilot, cruising over Forest Grove, Ore., on assignment, reached out the window to scatter the cremated ashes of a man over the Mountain View Memorial Gardens, but the four-pound bag slipped out of his hand, eventually crashing through the roof of a house near the cemetery. The deceased’s family paid for the damage, but homeowner later told a reporter, “I think some of [him] is still in our attic.”

HOME BODIES In October, Los Alamos National Laboratory nuclear research officials evicted Roy M. Moore, 56, who had been living for years—apparently undetected—in a cave located on the facility grounds. Moore had equipped his home with a wood-burning stove, solar panels, a bed, a glass door and satellite radio.

Must Be Time for Another War Bushies gear up to invade Iran You’ve heard this song before. There’s this country, see, and they hate America. They’d nuke us if they had the chance, you bet they would. Damn Muslim religious fanatics! Guess what? They have weapons of mass destruction! Either that or their scientists are about to develop them. Whatever— we can’t let that happen. We’ve gotta hit them before they hit us! What’s that? Of course we’re sure! Our intelligence says so. Huh? No. We can’t show you the proof. But we will tell you that a little bird told us. A little exile bird that wants to run the country after we overthrow the current regime. They wouldn’t lie, and neither would we. And while we’re at it, can we borrow your son for the next few years? Colin Powell, disgraced by his 2003 fictional anthrax speech at the U.N., is closing his run as Bush’s poodle-in-chief with a bravura repeat performance. His last big PR project: Conning us into war against Iran. The Administration’s sales pitch for “Attack on the Ayatollahs” reads a lot like the one for “So Long, Saddam.” There’s a supposed “grave and gathering threat”—a nuclearcapable, America-hating Iran. Even as presented, the intel is sketchy. Iran, Powell says, has “been actively working on delivery systems”—missiles that could carry nukes. During the Cuban Missile Crisis, JFK went on television to show us the satellite photos. Powell thinks we should believe him just because. “I have seen intelligence which would corroborate what this dissident group is saying,” says the outgoing Secretary of Rationalization. Not that there’s much there: “I’m talking about information that says that they not only had these missiles, but I’m aware of information that suggests they were working hard as to how to put the two [missiles and nuclear weapons] together.” Bombs haven’t even started falling on Tehran and the WMDs have already become WMD-related programs.

Powell’s intel is enough to make a 2005 gold star mother pine for George “Slam Dunk” Tenet. First, it’s ancient. The Iraq WMD info ended in 1998 and was proven wrong in 2003. Powell’s claims that Iran obtained schematics for an atomic bomb from Pakistan are even older, dating to 1996. Moreover, the Iran sourcing—the National Council for Resistance in Iran (NCRI)—makes Ahmed Chalabi look like a Boy Scout. The NCRI, a front organization for the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK), is a bizarre, Shiite, pro-Baathist (yes, you read that right) guerilla army infamous for crushing the 1991 Kurdish uprising on Saddam’s orders. Better yet, it’s designated as a “known terrorist organization” by Powell’s own State Department. Only the Bushiban know whether they plan to invade Iran. But, as Time Magazine reports, “the neoconservative hawks who championed the Iraq war have long advocated an aggressive pursuit of regime change in Iran.” Washington kremlinologists are waiting to see whether Bush will promote anti-Iran neocon John Bolton from Undersecretary of State for Arms Control to Deputy Secretary of State. A Bolton ascension, goes the word on K Street, probably means a third war. At bare minimum, writes centrist New York Times scribe Nicholas Kristof, “the United States will discuss whether to look the other way as Israel launches airstrikes on Iranian nuclear sites,” a move that could easily lead to abroader conflict if Iran retaliates by attacking U.S.occupied Iraq or Afghanistan, or Israel itself. Iranian nukes, minus a high-precision long-range delivery system, can’t do us much harm. Iran’s Shahab-3 missile has a maximum range of 800 miles, far enough to hit Israel. But that’s Israel’s problem. Iran has no ICBMs capable of traversing the Atlantic and accurately hitting an American target—and no immediate prospect of developing one. Besides, the Iranian government has repeatedly made overtures to the Bush Administration to talk about their nuclear program, only to be rebuffed. It would be truer to say that the U.S. is a threat to Iran. MTW

Following Seagal into the Sunset An unforgettable excursion at Ironwood Ranch Not long ago I had the pleasure of following Steven Seagal into the West Maui Mountains. It was very nice, but he was also really slow. My friend Marion had to kick him softly every now and again so he wouldn’t fall behind too much. As the sun set over the secluded pineapple field we were moving through, I thought about how I should have left Seagal behind and come with Brad Pitt instead.

Seagal and Pitt were, naturally, horses. My friend Marion and I were at the Ironwood Stables, where all the horses are named after movie and pop stars. Gina Weaver, the stable general manager, says her favorite horse is named Sandra Bullock. “A while ago, there was a group of young people in a private tour and when I introduced them to our horses, two girls asked if we had a horse named Britney Spears,” she told me recently. “I was in the middle of giving instructions and just blurted out, ‘No we don’t have her. We don’t listen to that crap. We are too old for that.’ “They all looked puzzled but never said a word.” Weaver continued. “The tour went fine and they all enjoyed it, but later we found out that Britney Spears had been on the tour herself. They were all wearing sunglasses and hats, so I didn’t recognise anybody, plus it had been booked without her name. Interviewed on a TV show [later], she said she loved Maui, especially the horse trail ride with horses named after actors, but she was disappointed that there was no horse with her name and may never be. Well, we will change that soon.” “We are one of the only ranches that gives historical information and background,” says Weaver with a big smile on her face, and lists only a few of the REAL actors and celebrities who did the tour with Ironwood: Vanessa Williams, Stevie Nicks from Fleetwood Mac, Natalie Portman, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, Jim Carrey, Richard Grieco, Kelsey Grammer, Pete Rose, Kristi Yamaguchi, and Toby Maguire together with Leonardo DiCaprio. Weaver added that they sold Keanu Reeves four years ago and don’t yet have a Hugh Grant. Of DiCaprio, Weaver said he was “really nice and afterwards said on a TV show about his tour with Ironwood Stables that he loved that for the first time, he was

Weaver and Seagal treated like a regular person, not a famous star. Oh, and he loved the wild coffee beans.” Weaver has been a trail guide for 21 years and the GM for Ironwood Stables for 13. She must love her job since she drives from her home in Haiku to the ranch in Napili every day. Even after over nearly 20,000 tour rides, she says she still enjoys it. ”Every tour is different, you meet many interesting people from all over the world,” she said. She learned Japanese, so she can teach the tourists about Maui’s beauty. During our ride through restricted farmlands of pineapple and lush forests, she told us about ancient Hawaiian villages, blue flowers that taste like mushrooms which you can eat, wild coffee beans, the history of the land, the incredible healing effects of Hawaiian noni and much more. We saw huge mango trees, plenty of lilikoi, lovely wild lilies, and the most gorgeous sunset. No one’s saying the horses share personality traits with their namesake celebrities, but strange things have happened. For instance, when Loni Anderson and Burt Reynolds separated, the two horses named after them apparently started disliking each other. Loni would kick and bite Burt whenever he came near her. “We could not run them on the same rides anymore,” said Weaver. MTW

WHICH WAY TO WAILUKU? How a town is trying to figure itself out If she didn’t like that outdoor stuff, they could fly to Maui. He had never been there but had heard them talk about Wailuku as a good place to take a woman, with good hotelinns that served good food… -Milt Warden in James Jones’ From Here to Eternity, 1951

I’m thumbing through George Engebretson’s Exploring Historic Wailuku. I stop at a haunting photo on page 17. Taken in the 1970s, it shows Masato “Charlie” Yonemoto standing next to his Vineyard Tavern & Pizza Parlor. Yonemoto is skinny, with short white hair and beady eyes. He’s wearing a t-shirt and shorts. Hunched over slightly and looking rather cranky, he’s almost frowning at the camera. His building, which dates to at least 1927, looks to be in pretty much the same shape. It’s got a steeply sloping corrugated metal roof, wooden plank construction and an awning that looks like it’s being held up by unrefined logs. The book, published in 2000, says the building is no longer in use. But I know this building. Book in hand, I walk down Vineyard Street, looking at the homes with No Trespassing signs, myriad attorney offices and sagging porches. Finally, just a few yards from the corner of Vineyard and High Street, I find it. The porch posts are more refined and the walls are now green with white trim, but it’s still Yanemoto’s old bar. Well, except that it now houses the Valley Isle Childbirth Education office. The old Vineyard Tavern is part Wailuku’s 68-acre “Redevelopment Zone,” which includes the shops and homes from Market Street to High Street and everything north to the Iao Stream. No one, it seems, is quite sure what to do with old Wailuku Town. Once the commercial capital of Maui, it now seems both quaint and decaying. Storefronts are boarded up, sidewalks in disrepair. Civic leaders are even questioning what it means to be a town. It’s not an academic exercise. People are right now making decisions that will determine the make-up of Wailuku over the next 50 or more years. Will it succumb to franchise restaurants and boutiques? Will it knock Lahaina out as the island’s premier destination for over-priced knickknacks and souvenirs? Or will its buildings slowly crumble away as residents and merchants simply move elsewhere?

All sorts of ideas flew out. When was the county going to build the main parking garage? Mayor Alan Arakawa pledged a $1 million bond, but said it was contingent on getting Wailuku redevelopment plans in order. People asked about attracting cruise ship passengers, bringing back pet parades and the feasibility of holding farmers’ markets instead of swap meets. One guy suggested building a “riverwalk” complex along the Iao Stream. Others asked about the possibility of “property tax abatement” for merchants who open offices or stores in the Wailuku Redevelopment Zone. County officials then circulated a draft ordinance. At one point, Arakawa spoke of the Wailuku he grew up in, when it was Maui’s clothing center. He asks local merchants to think of Wailuku town as a “shopping center.” He also said they needed to come up with a town theme. That’s failed, said one woman. “We were hoping you could give us direction.” Another resident said any theme ideas should go to the Maui Redevelopment Agency—the five-member county panel that approves redevelopment permits. Severely under-funded, the agency has acquired a reputation for being slow. “The MRA needs to get off their butts,” said Arakawa, who then derided “decades of inertia.” Sitting near the back was Jocelyn Perreira, the executive director of the Wailuku Main Street Association. She wore a brown dress with a leopard print shirt. Throughout the meeting, she made notes in a yellow legal pad. “This has dragged on since 1987,” she said, standing up. “Government takes too long.” She talked about how a farmers’ market can be a “critical anchor.” She mentioned the Iao Theater—“the Grand Dame of Wailuku,” she called it—as being the “keystone” to any future town redevelopment. “We are not in support of any one group having a very long lease,” she said, making a thinly veiled dig at Maui OnStage, which has pursued a long-term lease on the theater to show plays. “It’s going to be shared.”

Of all the different elements that make up Wailuku, On the last day of August, more than 50 residents, merchants, civic and community leaders gathered at the Waikapu Community Center—just a couple miles down the highway from the Wailuku civic center—for an old fashioned town meeting. Lynn Araki-Regan, the young and often incredibly upbeat county Economic Development Director, chaired the meeting. As a rooster crowed in the distance, she spoke the language of marketing, using words like “edutourism” and “adtourism.” She said Wailuku needed to “develop a positive image” that was “conducive for investment” yet would still “nurture and promote” town charm.

COVER STORY

the 1928-vintage Iao Theater is the highest-profile. Once Maui’s premier movie theater, it fell into disrepair and was nearly knocked down. Today it’s enjoying a new life as a community theater. A few weeks after the Town Meeting I visited Maui OnStage executive director Darla Palmer. Her office is right on the street, a few steps away from the box office. A couple nights before, on Sept. 7, the “Grand Dame of Wailuku” had hosted a local candidates’ forum. More than one attendee had complained to Palmer about the theater being “sweltering”—a fact she knew only too well.

Palmer has been working at the theater for nearly the last three years. Though the theater currently hosts plays every month, it’s only really been partially restored. When she first moved in, the roof leaked directly into her office, ruining her computer equipment. “We’ve had to make some really tough decisions,” she told me. “But big messes are kind of interesting to me.” With public funding for the arts taking a nosedive statewide, Maui OnStage has had to survive on foundation and endowment grants. But Palmer says her finances have “stabilized” to the point where she was able to hire three full-time staff members. The Iao Theater is both a major Wailuku redevelopment success story and a cautionary tale. Still in the midst of full renovation, Palmer estimates they need another $2.4 million. Walking through the theater, that seemed like a low number. Half the seats were folding chairs. Those that were actually bolted to the floor were take-outs from another theater—many had dedication plaques on the backs, but Palmer said she had no idea where they originally came from. She said the theater has a grant for 400 new seats, but can’t put them in until they get a new floor—the current one is infested with dry rot. Part of the problem is that the Iao was actually designed as a movie house. The old projection room—covered in a beautiful, hand-painted mural, is today used for storage. There’s also very limited shop space and basement area. The elaborate cupolas in the ceiling are a mystery to Palmer. She said there doesn’t seem to be any access to the lightbulbs within, either from the roof or any crawlspace within the ceiling. The stage is another curiosity. The old Iao movie house didn’t have to have much of one, but today’s plays require more room. So engineers pushed it forward. But the best acoustics in the theater are in the old proscenium arch, which is now 20 feet back from the front of the stage. The result is that the closer the actors are to the audience, the more difficult it is to hear them. Palmer said one idea is simply to move the proscenium forward, but again, that will require money. Then there’s the matter of why the theater was so sweltering during the September candidates forum. It wasn’t like that in the old days. To save the building during early restoration, engineers had to make certain sacrifices. That meant blocking the Iao Theater’s original, ingenious and elegant ventilation system that took advantage of the building’s location. The back of the building, which faces the ocean and the tradewinds, has many large vents. These force air into the building and through more vents in the back stage walls and proscenium.


Air then flowed beneath the stage and floor, into the back spaces and finally out over the audience. It has no moving parts, yet worked magnificently to cool the audience during movies. When workers moved the stage forward and built wardrobes and rooms in the back, they had to block some of the vents, pretty much destroying the system. “They had to look at the big picture,” said Palmer. Now they have no choice but to install central air conditioning.

On Nov. 4 of this year, Maui Time published “Working Guy,” the compelling yet still thoughtful story of a transsexual prostitute in Wailuku. The story caused a brief sensation—not only for its lurid content, but because it reported a subject matter many residents preferred ignoring. Hawaiian activist Charlie Maxwell denounced the story on his radio show hours after it hit the streets. Other local activists emailed that they were “deeply concerned” about the story’s “portrayal of Wailuku Town.” At no time did anyone question its authenticity—their argument was simply that newspapers ought not to write such things about their dear Wailuku. “The Wailuku Town Action Committee [sic] has worked hard in its revitalization efforts of Wailuku and its business community,” wrote one angry resident. “This article undermines the efforts of every person who participated and supported this effort.” This is, of course, nonsense—Wailuku, being an urban area, has urban problems. Though addressing issues like prostitution is new to Wailuku, questioning what to do about the urbanization of Wailuku goes back decades. In 1962, a county Urban Planning report said Wailuku was “suffering from the exhaustive process of decentralization. Run-down, dilapidated buildings and incompatible land uses have exposed, little by little, the symptoms of chaos in this colorful community.” The plan called for classic, draconian urban renewal—the seizure of property through eminent domain, then the launching of bulldozers to knock it all down. It didn’t happen. But 10 years later, things didn’t seem any better. “[Wailuku has] suffered for years from inadequate or difficult circulation, parking and deteriorating structures,” stated the Wailuku-Kahului General Plan. Once again, planners called for widespread demolition and the “relocation” of area occupants. And once again, residents denounced such action. In 1987, the recommendations changed. The Wailuku Community Plan called for rehabilitating many town structures and the creation of special districts with tax incentives to encourage small businesses. Many of the same recommendations appeared later in the 1999 Community Plan. The 2000 Wailuku Redevelopment Plan is a curious and, at times, contradictory document. “This is an exciting time in Wailuku Town’s History,” states the first sentence of the plan’s first paragraph. But the plan goes on to note decades of dilapidation and “struggle.” Indeed, struggles can often be exciting, though rarely for those individuals actually doing the struggling. In 1920, Wailuku was the island’s “bustling commercial and government center.” That distinction now lies with Kahului. All the modern “Big Box” retailers are now there, as are the Queen Ka’ahumanu Center, Maui Mall, Maui Marketplace and so forth. But perhaps even Kahului will someday begin to question its very existence—today, most of the island’s growth takes place in South Maui and on the West Side. In fact, the West Side population should nearly triple over the next 20 years.

You can talk to 500 residents and merchants and come up with 500 different responses. But what would the person who is paid to speak for those residents and merchants say? Sitting in her office, surrounded by filing cabinets and stacks of papers and reports, Jocelyn Perreira looked grave. “Wailuku could have easily been boarded up,” she told me. “We had a bad situation. It’s improved. We’ve come a long way. If you were back here in 1987 and saw how badly it had deteriorated, you’d appreciate how far we’ve come.” A fourth-generation Maui resident, Perreira has been executive director of the Wailuku Main Street Association (WMSA) for the past 19 years. Her previous employment included management over a shopping center and trucking company, as well as real estate and education. “I left million-dollar clients to take on this humble job,” she said. “But I felt I had to give back to the community that gave me so much.” Unlike other local town action committees, the WMSA is large and well-funded—far better funded, in fact, than the official Maui Redevelopment Agency. Indeed, it regularly applies for and receives tens of thousands of dollars in grants from the county, state and federal government. For some, such resources at a time when locals are using the term “struggle” to describe Wailuku might be a bit embarrassing. The question “Just what have you been doing for the past two decades?” springs forward almost instantaneously. In response, Perreira printed out a two-page sheet of accomplishments called “Project Involvement.” It lists 38 bullet points, itemizing WMSA participation in mainly beautification projects:

Sitting in various mayoral and county council subcommittees, helping draft various plans, posting “Wailuku Town Entry Signs” at three locations, converting vacant lots into temporary “mini-parks,” “Tree-pruning/planting,” starting community crime watch as well as publishing various brochures. The WMSA also published the Rediscover Wailuku Walk Tour Booklet, though it’s now long out of print and needs a bit of updating—the Mayor’s Note, for instance, was written by the late Hannibal Tavares, who left office in 1990. I asked Perreira her thoughts on Mayor Arakawa’s request for a town theme. She brightened. “We’ve been very involved in marketing strategies,” she told me. “A theme would be very good for the town. It would give it an opportunity to develop a niche, a brand personality.” She then read from a list of words she and fellow WMSA members came up with—dignity, integrity, tradition, nurturing, family, pioneering, adventurous and something called “Wailuku’s Promise.” All are solid, undoubtedly truthful characterizations of Wailuku. But they’re also buzzwords—boilerplate gimmicks that could be used to describe almost anything from civic pride to laundry detergent. What does Wailuku have more—adventure or integrity? How can anything be both “traditional” and “pioneering?” And most importantly, what town in America wouldn’t describe itself using those very same terms?

Ironically, in their quest for civic identity and investment, the citizens of Wailuku have a huge advantage over most Mainland cities. It’s the fact that redevelopment has been so slow and plodding. During the Aug. 31 Town Meeting, someone asked whether the Maui County Council could take on the role of the Maui Redevelopment Agency. Mayor Arakawa said it wasn’t yet legal, but gave the impression that it might not be such a bad idea. In fact, it’s a terrible idea. Many Mainland city councils double as redevelopment agencies, and the results are nothing short of disastrous. One day you’ve got old main streets with independent record stores, surf shops and cafes, the next you’ve got a colorful, pastel strip malls lined with the names Jamba Juice, Taco Bell, Starbucks, Blockbuster and 7-Eleven. Perhaps there’s no alternative. As the County Council, County Planning Commission and state Land Use Commission (LUC) continue to approve massive residential and commercial developments in places like South Maui, Kahului and the West Side, people and importance will continue to flow out of places like Wailuku. If the county is serious about addressing the future of Wailuku, then it’s going to have to think hard about how it’s treating the rest of the island. MTW

A town meeting. A revived theater. Lots of revitalization reports. What does it all add up to? What does it mean to be a resident of Wailuku? What’s going to happen next?

All About the Enzymes Charley’s tempting juices and smoothies “It’s pronounced Ahh-SIGH-ee,” the woman behind the window said, nodding her head as if she had just sneezed. We were at Charley’s Juice Stand in Paia, which owner Jim Fuller just opened in October.

65 Hana Hwy., Paia. “The Brazilians—they go crazy for the stuff,” she said. Then she pointed to her most popular smoothie on the menu: “Amazon,” which features acai as the main ingredient. “But what is it?” I wondered halfaloud, sweating with anticipation. Somehow I again found myself seduced by the possibility of adding yet another energy supplement to my diet. Flax, wheat grass, kombucha— I’ve been through them all. I’m still looking for “the one”—the supplement that’s ready to stick around and get serious. The one that will love me right in the long run. “Can I tempt you with an Acai Energy Bowl?” She raised her eyebrows, smiling wildly. I read the list of ingredients. Suddenly, within my grasp was an omega-rich “power” fruit that has more antioxidants than wild blueberries, plus guarana seed, which is basically caffeine but good for you? According to Sambazon (www.sambazon.com), acai is wild harvested from Brazilian palmberries in the Amazon, and promises extra physical strength and mental awareness. Shitdog, I couldn’t resist. I’ve always been a sucker for those exotic types. The woman, named Tammy Donner, headed to her juicer—the one she calls “the monster.” I watched as she juggled buckets of bright apples, oranges, bananas and beets, clearing herself some

counter space. “I’ll make you some juice, too,” Donner hollered from the inside. “I just love working here. It’s like playing with play dough, putting all these carrots and beets into this thing.” She handed me two cups of juice—a Baldwin Beets, which was a grainy blend of carrots, celery and beets, and a Paia Breeze, a frothy mixture of the same, but with added apple. Both sell for $5.50 for a 16 oz cup. “I don’t drink the stuff myself,” she shrugged, looking a little guilty and giggling. “It’s so good for you, I know. And it tastes good too! But I’m a Pepsi and hamburger girl at heart. I like meat. Here, try this.” “Mmm, vibrant,” was all I could think to

say, as I downed the orange red pulp in one gulp. “It’s a whole meal in a cup.” “Do you like it? Do you really?” Donner nodded up and down, gleefully. “You know, people come here all the way from Lahaina to get this stuff. They can’t believe we serve it this fresh. It’s all about the enzymes, they tell me.” Next, she brought out the Energy Bowl ($6.00), a hearty serving of bright purple acai blended with fresh blueberry and apple juice, topped with sliced bananas, granola and a dollop of nonfat yogurt. According to the menu, you can add soy or one of six energy boosts for $.50 extra. The Energy Bowl was everything you’d want in a smoothie, but it’s served in a bowl. “Oghhh…” I gurgled, shoveling globs of the plum-coated bananas in my mouth. It was smooth and creamy, a cross between berries and chocolate, breakfast and dessert. I could tell this was the beginning of something beau-

tiful between us. Sure, maybe it was the power of suggestion, but I could feel the acai pulsing through my pores. Suddenly I had the energy to run a marathon, or change a flat tire… or at least walk the length of the mall, twice. In addition to its smoothies and juices, Charley’s offers wraps, sandwiches and salads, including the Valley Isle Veggie ($5.50/half, $10/whole), which is a cashew carrot spread smothered on a wrap with avocado, sprouts, cucumbers and cheese, or the Cranberry South Swell ($5/half, $9.50/whole), which has turkey, cheese and cranberry mayo. They also feature fresh burritos from Pinata’s, and decadent desserts such as Strawberry Cheesecake and Cream Lime Pie ($4.50). “Most of the stuff we serve is too healthy for me,” said Donner. “But I’m trying. I’m going to learn to drink juice if it kills me!” As for acai and me, well, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship. MTW

EMPLOYEE OF THE

WEEK A S T O L D T O S A R A H E LW E L L

Clark Paul Day Bartender, Buzz’s Wharf I first stumbled across Buzz’s Wharf when my wife and I were on vacation roughly two years ago. It was then that the two of us decided to move to Maui and look for employment. Once we relocated from the mainland I started passing out resumes from one end of the island to the other. Buzz’s was the last place we stopped after a long day of job searching and seemed meant to be as this is where I’ve worked for the last two years. I’ve been bartending for over 30 years and remember when a mixed drink used to cost only 90 cents. My last job in Ventura, California was in a private club at the top of a 22-story building and I had to wear a tux. I like working at Buzz’s because it’s fun and I get to wear an aloha shirt to work everyday. Buzz’s location is ideal as it’s conveniently located in the isthmus of the island. The view of Ma’alaea Harbor is amazing and I can always look out and see boats, whales, waves and/or the weather. My most requested drinks is a Mai Tai. [Though] many people believe that Buzz’s has the best on the island possibly due to the vanilla beans we put in the rum bottles, I like to think it’s the aloha. However, my personal best is a Bloody Mary, as I have my own secret seasoning I use on the rim of the glass and garnish with pickled asparagus instead of celery. I like the fact that we get so many repeat customers from the mainland. So often, this is the first place they stop when they get off the plane and the last place they come to when they leave the island. Many people come in telling me they have been craving our clam chowder, steamed clams or our signature dish, “Prawns Tahitian.” The owners have their own prawn farm in New Caledonia and ship them straight to Buzz’s Wharf. The prawns are baked in butter, Parmesan cheese, and herbs and taste sweet like baby lobster tails. One of my most favorite and memorable customers was Jimmy Buffet, who sat at my bar to have a fish sandwich and iced tea before he flew his own plane back to the mainland. Another was a 93-year-old woman who comes in every year to drink our Mai Tai’s and complains that they won’t let her drive anymore. MTW

Progressive Thursdays

L.A.B. Ladies Revealed!

Thursday (tonight!), 8 p.m. at Casanova

Thursday (tonight!), 9 p.m. at Life’s a Beach

THURSDAY

PHOTO BY: DORIS MARAN/WWW.BRIDALBOUDOIR.COM

[MUSIC/ART] Mauians who share progressive attitudes regarding social, political, economic and artistic endeavors are invited to join in an evening dedicated to creative thought, conversation, art, revolution and entertainment. The Life of Brian Band direct from the jungles of Kipahulu will provide fun, socially relevant rock-and-roll. Piero Resta and friends will share poetry and art. Lauren Harris will unveil a new painting and DJ El Gato will get the booties shaking with cutting-edge global grooves. Potential appearances by special guests are a possibility and everyone is invited to come and speak out against the status quo in this peaceful, intelligent, stimulating atmosphere that’s happening tonight and every other Thursday during the month of December. [SALVATORE DILORETTO]

[FUNDRAISER] Like many glorious ideas before it, this one came about over margaritas one fateful night. The good people of Life’s a Beach wanted “to raise money for local charities and have some fun doing it.” What were they going to do— have a bake sale? Hell, no! The ladies all agreed that philanthropy is best when wearing the least amount of clothing and frolicking on the beach to take “sexy and cute photos in the style of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.” You can get your hands on one of their resulting calendars by donation and it’s just in time for the Holiday Season, too! Those ladies think of everything! There’s also live music by Fine Line, along with raffles and prizes.

The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom; well, ‘Funk Dog’ wuz living proof. Unfortunately he’s not living anymore. Genuine, generous, gregarious are all applicable, and then some. The original Space Patrol drummer has gone to the Big Band beyond. He will be sorely missed. The send-off will be January 15th @ Keokea Pavillion around 2.

Remember Pearl Harbor!

Walking With Taro Tuesday, 1 p.m. at Kapahu Farm in Kipahulu

Tuesday And no, I’m not talking about that Michael Bay/Jerry Bruckheimer clunker that stared Ben Affleck, Josh Hartnett, Kate Beckinsale and a brief appearance by Alec Baldwin. No, this Tuesday we remember the real deal—the pre-8 a.m., Sunday morning attack by the Japanese Navy on our helpless, defenseless, U.S. Navy fleet way back in 1941. In one of history’s dumbest schemes, the Japanese ended up sinking or damaging 15 mostly obsolete ships and killing 2,400 people. But because the Japanese botched the timing—they were actually still in negotiations when the bombs started falling—the U.S. kind of got a little outraged. That meant no one really protested when we firebombed 900,000 Japanese civilians out of existence and then killed and wounded another couple hundred thousand in two nuclear attacks. [ANTHONY PIGNATARO]

Ever wonder what an actual Taro farm looks like? Now you can find out, by taking a guided one-hour walking tour of the beautiful Kapahu Farm. Keep in mind that this is an active agricultural facility—not Disneyland—so they don’t any snack bars or water fountains. That means you have to pack your own lunch, water, sunscreen and hiking shoes. And since it’s way out in Kipahulu—between Hana and Kaupo on Highway 36—plan on it taking you a few hours to get there. Oh, and they only give this tour on the first Tuesday of each month, so you’ll have to wait a while if you miss it this time around. Reservations are NOT needed, but if you want more information, call 248-8974. [ANTHONY PIGNATARO]

Yak Butter Blues Saturday, 2 p.m. at Borders Books & Music, Kahului [BOOKSIGNING] Maui author Brandon Wilson was fascinated with the thought of completing the trek along an ancient pilgrimage trail from Lhasa, Tibet to Kathmandu, Nepal across the forbidding Himalayan plains. And when the Chinese authorities denied his request, calling it “impossible,” Wilson was more determined than ever. So he and his wife did it, learning along the way about survival, spirituality, Tibetans and I’m guessing, yak butter? This Saturday, Wilson will read from this book, Yak Butter Blues: A Tibetan Trek of Faith, talk about “the pleasures and pains of trekking 1000 kilometers (650 miles) across Tibet,” and then sign copies. For a preview of the book, visit www.YakButterBlues.com.

FILMCRITIQUE

BY COLE SMITHEY

Punished By Love Mike Nichols returns to his emotionally ruinous dramatic roots Mike Nichols teases up a similar level of nasty modern emotional dysfunction to his 1973 film Carnal Knowledge with a filmic rendition of Patrick Marber’s widely acclaimed stage play about sexual one-ups-man-ship in London. Closer sits as an uncomfortable companion piece to this summer’s equally confrontational We Don’t Live Here Anymore. Both films tilt at sexually ethical windmills with Closer being the more graphic but also more factitious of the two. Jude Law plays Dan, a geeky British obituary writer who poisons relations with his meet-cute American girlfriend Alice (Natalie Portman) after a photo shoot with another American female Anna (Julia Roberts). The dramatic cake rises when Dan performs a cybersex roleplay prank to lure randy dermatologist Larry (Clive Owen) to publicly meet Anna as retribution for her rejection. Jealousy and betrayal boil over as the couples switch allegiances, and plot twists reveal the characters’ inner natures through their habitual transgressions.

Closer

★★★★★ Rated R/100 mins.

Mike Nichols compensates for some of the script’s stagy weaknesses with longing close-ups of the actors’ faces and varying camera angles that provide a fly-on-thewall perspective to the emotional carnage at hand. Marber’s script continually leaps forward in time to embellish his premise that people focus more on the beginnings and endings of relationships than on what happens in the middle. But while the script flashes on the idea that its characters are addicted to the act of “falling in love,” it doesn’t go far enough in showing any hook-ups with people outside of the two couples. Because each actor fully carries his or her quarter of responsibility to the story, casting flaws become painfully apparent. Julia Roberts suffers the most with her signature one-note performance coming up woefully short against Clive Owen who literally runs circles around her. But a more subtle failure comes with Jude Law’s inability to stay true to his morphing character. You can actually watch him break character in several scenes. Perhaps because of his association to the recent

22

DECEMBER 2, 2004

FILM

remake of Alfie, Law was unable to make critical mental adjustments that would have allowed him to let down his guard as a presentational stud. It’s no wonder that Clive Owen steals the movie considering that he played Dan in the original National Theater production of Closer (directed by the playwright), but he so fearlessly commands the movie that you can visualize him holding it on his shoulders like Atlas. Owen brings a heightened level of commitment to every one of his scenes and his fearless performance teeters on a dramatic edge of spontaneity that is breathtaking. Natalie Portman reaps the most rewards from Clive Owen’s spectacular results in the scenes that they play together. Portman soars in this most complex and challenging role of her career. Alice is a professional stripper, and her cynical character sets the libidinous tone for the film from its opening scene where she walks down a busy street in slow motion before a chance encounter with Dan (Law) allows her to lay down immediate roots in London. Alice—as she calls herself most of the time—is the most guarded character in the story and is the catalyst that spurs every other character into action. After Alice moves in with Dan, he finally writes his first novel, and when Dan first attempts to cheat on her with Anna, Alice is in the next room of Anna’s photography studio eavesdropping. In short, Alice brings out the best and worst of those nearest to her through her “disarming” sensuality and secret agenda. Alice also carries the subtext of the film’s overriding theme about the cruelty of love being equal to the savagery of sex. The thematic centerpiece of the film comes not in the much talked-about verbally graphic break-up scene between Clive Owen and Julia Roberts, but in the nightclub scene where she taunts the supplicating Larry with her naked flesh that she lords over him with calculated and compassionless mastery. The film hits its crescendo when the love-struck Larry is forced to admit that all he can desire from Alice is to gaze from behind at her glistening genitalia. Alice sums up the movie when she confronts Dan with his heartily professed love after she ends their relationship. “Love,” she says, “where is this love? I can’t feel it, I can’t see it.” It’s a word that has by now been so abused that it no longer holds any credibility to today’s post-modern global culture. Like promises from a politician, “love” has become a curse that condemns its user. Closer is a good movie made from a competent play, but it clearly states something that most people are deeply afraid to admit. MTW

Razor sharp and funny as hell" (indieWIRE). Chronicles the making--and unmaking--of Werner Herzog's film about Scotland's infamous Loch Ness monster. Controversial and strangely humorous, the film raises many questions about where reality ends and fiction begins. "Can be taken as a parable about cinema art vs. commerce. If that's too much to think about, just enjoy the off-beat humor" (NY Post). This terrific film "is a harpoon hurled into the hot-air balloon of 'reality' entertainment" (LA Weekly). Rated PG-13. 94 min.

Now Showing AFTER THE SUNSET – (PG13) – Crime, Romance – Pierce Brosnan plays—what else— a master thief who’s pulled his last score and retired to an island paradise. But wait! There’s still one last jewel he hasn’t yet swiped! But then his FBI agent nemesis shows up to make sure he’s out of the stealing business! It all sounds like your standard heist picture routine, but Salma Hayek’s in it, so that makes it a must-see.

ALEXANDER – (R) – Action/Adventure – Oliver Stone’s big war epic, this stars Colin Farrell as the world’s most famous conqueror and Angelina Jolie as his equally ambitious mother. What can be said—the guy took over the known world by the time he was 32. Not much to it really, except possibly that he, you know, really enjoyed the company of men. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but he did call his soldiers “Companions.” I’m just saying. Also stars Val Kilmer and Anthony Hopkins. BRIDGET JONES: EDGE OF REASON – (R) – Romantic Comedy – A continuation in following the neurotic trials and insecure tribulations of kinda plump and totally British Bridget (Renée Zellweger) as she thinks and talks to death her perfect relationship with stable Mark (Colin Firth) and her questionable, ego-conqest relationship with former smarmy boss, Daniel (Hugh Grant, who else?). CHRISTMAS WITH THE KRANKS – (PG) – Comedy – Imagine a year without Christmas. That's just what Luther (Tim Allen) and Nora Krank ( Jamie Lee Curtis) have in mind when they decide that they'll skip the holiday altogether, despite the fact that they're usually the most fanatical about it. But when their daughter surprises them by cutting her trip short and returning home for Christmas, there's a mad scramble to prepare themselves to have the traditional Christmas fanfare on extremely short notice. No tree, no decorations or gifts. Bah Humbug!!! THE GRUDGE – (PG13) – Horror – You know how your mama told you never to hold a grudge? Well, this little horror flick sets out to prove that point further as Sarah Michelle Gellar finds herself in a cycle of unresolved fury and a curse born of someone who... dunh duh!... held a grudge. THE INCREDIBLES – (PG) – Animation, Action, Comedy – A family of former superheroes comes out of retirement to don masks and capes and brightly colored tights so they can, once again, fight evil and save lives. If only my family reunions were so benevolent! Voices by Craig T Nelson, Samuel Jackson, Holly Hunter. NATIONAL TREASURE – (PG) – Action/Adventure – Nicholas Cage and Diane Kruger star in this quest to find some incredible treasure hidden by our nation’s founding fathers,

Woody Harrelson in After the Sunset who were nice enough to plant clues on the back of $1 bills. Sean Bean, as usual, plays a “ruthless adversary” in their search to unlock the secret to what the movie calls a 2,000-year-old mystery. Sounds great— wait, 2,000? Um, isn’t the country just—wait, let me get my calculator—228 years old? So it’s a 228-yearold mystery, right? Well, that doesn’t sound like such a big deal. THE POLAR EXPRESS – (G) – Family, Animated – A boy struggles to believe in Santa Claus as all his friends and schoolyard chums make fun of him for being so gullible. Stupid chums. But then a giant steam train pulls up to his house to take him to the North Pole. Oh my God, it’s a ghost train! Run and hide! Oh wait, it’s just the 5:15 in from Baltimore. Late as usual… RAY – (PG13) – Musical Drama – The story of Ray Charles, blind from age seven, who famously merged Gospel, jazz and rhythm and blues music, all while fighting drug addiction and Southern segregation, eventually becoming one of the greatest American pianists of the 20th century. Stars Jamie Foxx and Regina King.

SHALL WE DANCE? – (PG13) – Drama, Musical This movie reads like an after-hours flick on cable: “An overworked Chicago accountant (Richard Gere), tired of the boring routine that his life has become, sees a beautiful dance teacher (Jennifer Lopez) through a window and decides to get to know her better, and as the joy of dancing enters his life, he discovers that it might just be the secret to saving his troubled marriage...” (Greg’s Previews, Yahoo Movies!) THE SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS MOVIE – (PG) – Family/Animation – The inevitable movie version of the popular Nickelodeon cartoon of the same name, this ostensible kids’ movie about a talking sponge and his starfish buddy who work in a hamburger joint has a surprising amount of thinly-veiled homoerotic humor. They call their world Bikini Bottom, people! Do I have to spell it out for you? Also stars David Hasselhoff as himself.

Khrinj break through the glut of faceless “Cookie-Monster” metal clones with their second album, Ruin, which was released earlier this year. Shrieking and snarling vocals explode with invectives and soul-searching lyrics. Heavier than a constipated rhino, the bass guitar shakes the walls without mercy, syncopating with the thundering double-bass drums and rolling toms (checkout “Plastic Soldiers”). The seventh song, “Wormeater,” mixes aggressive power-metal with an intricate, yet raging interplay between the two guitars over an insane drum pattern. Ruin is for fans of all aggressive music everywhere, so be sure to see Khrinj while you still can. www.khrinj.com —[STEPHEN R. HART]

TE VAKA “TUTUKI” Te Vaka is a huge band from the small atoll of Tokelau, near New Zealand. Mixing traditional Polynesian slit drums (Pate’) with modern guitars and bass, Te Vaka build powerful rhythms and melodies with an infectious joy on this award-winning album. Avoiding the cheezy electronic drums that mar so many world music records, the perfect vocal harmonies of the female singers float and flutter over the chants of the haunting male vocals. While embracing their Pacific Island roots, Te Vaka blend contemporary issues such as AIDS and corporate colonialization, while never coming across as preachy but mirroring many of the issues that Maui faces today. Tutuki won Best Pacific Music Album 2004 in the New Zealand Music Industry Awards. www.Tevaka.com —[STEPHEN R. HART]

THE REAL TUESDAY WELD “I, LUCIFER” This is one of the most unusual yet strangely appealing albums I’ve ever heard. I, Lucifer samples European music from the 1920s and 1930s with groovy beats. Curious lyrics and deadpan singing make the songs even more atypical. Lyrics like “Love is the greatest gift from the ugly to the beautiful” make me think. I, Lucifer is very British and intellectual but still quite entertaining and seductive. The Real Tuesday Weld is one-man-industry Stephen Coates, a.k.a. The Clerkenwell Kid. Conceived as a soundtrack to Glen Duncan’s novel, I, Lucifer, the album gives us the Devil’s take on humanity, and The Real Tuesday Weld’s take on our favorite sins. It is an album full of interesting characters for interesting characters. —Six Degrees Records, 2004 [JOE GATTO]

MOSQUITOS “MOSQUITOS” Mosquitos are the perfect meeting between American indierock and smooth Bossa Nova. Juju Stulbach, blessed with a sexy, ethereal voice, sings lead in Portuguese on most tracks. Her boyfriend, multi-instrumentalist Chris Root, skillfully handles guitar, bass, drums and percussion. Jon Marshall Smith injects synthesizer and organ into the mix, creating a dreamy texture in many tunes. Root’s guitar playing is inspired, like he is giving it all he has to make Juju look her best. But, on his own songs the playing is very simple and the vocals kind of goofy. Root’s jangly, echo-y guitar riffs and minimalist arrangements are better than the majority of the indie-rock standard. However, what really makes Mosquitos unique is Juju’s sexy singing and Carioca style and allure. All the songs are good, but Root sings on half of the tracks and his nerdy, off key indie-rock style takes away from the Juju show. —Bar-None Records, 2003 [JOE GATTO]

‘Happy with What We Had’

Rolling Stones, the Beatles, I wanted to try it. Tell me about your next album.

Third World really likes Maui Born out of founding member Stephen “Cat” Coore’s high school final exams, the Reggae band Third World has spent the last 31 years producing more than 20 albums, touring the world and recording with Stevie Wonder. While waiting to release their next album—due out this spring—they’re performing at their favorite location second only to Jamaica: Maui’s Lahaina Civic Amphitheater. Recently I spoke with bassist Richie Daley, one of the iconic group’s original members.

Third World Third World plays Saturday, December 4th, at the Lahaina Civic Amphitheater. Gates open at 4:30 p.m., show starts at 6 p.m. Tickets $35. www.thirdworldband.com MAUI TIME: So why does Third World love playing in Hawaii, apart from the obvious reasons, of course, like the half-naked women and the beautiful weather? RICHIE DALEY: Hawaii has the closest place that feels like Jamaica. A similar vibe of the people. What makes Hawaii and Jamaica so similar and what makes your music resonate so well in both communities?

Considering you started in the early 1970s, what keeps your music relevant today? With global hostility and terrorism at the forefront of everyone’s agenda, there has never been a more appropriate time for the music we play. We show an alternative lifestyle, how to solve problems without killing each other. Invariably, everyone loves their neighbor—you don’t want to see young people going off to war. [I want to] make music that will give people confidence and courage that there is an alternative.

What musical legacy do you hope to leave?

What differences do you notice about world culture today?

What is your most moment as a musician?

The old value system has changed somewhat. When we were young, everybody wanted a car and a house. We were happy with what we had. Now everybody wants to be filthy rich. Everybody wants to live like a basketball player. People want so many things. They say, “People are fighting, but that’s over there—I’m still going to get what I want.” During the Vietnam War people were carrying banners, people were protesting. We’re not seeing as much of that now.

Recording with Stevie Wonder. We were all individually and collectively in awe of Stevie Wonder. We met him on a visit to Jamaica. He was performing in “Sunsplash,” a tribute concert for Bob Marley a year after his death. He said he wanted to take the stage with us and we played together. At the Rose Bowl he asked us to appear with him and he invited us to his studio.

How did you get started with music?

Morgan Heritage. They are from Jamaica and the U.S. They are the children of another Reggae artist, Denroy Morgan. They are incredible. MTW

It was a hobby in school. I played guitar. Pop culture at the time influenced me. The

If [two different people] are facing the same conditions, then they are very similar. Oceans all around them, similar climate, food and drink, the interaction with people is very close. Music reflects what people feel within, and [ours] reflects a similar lifestyle. Once, just by the stroke of luck, I went into a café and I heard a band playing some of our music. They didn’t know I was there. They really related to what they were [playing], like a band in Jamaica would. They do have something in common. They are protesting against the loss of their culture. We want it preserved. We want to keep our heritage. We were a British colony, gained our independence in 1962. Our culture was the majority with Chinese immigrants and Indians who migrated to find a better life. Out of all this it was multicultural—music, food, songs, you name it. You went to school among many different cultures.

It’s probably going to be called Black, Gold and Green. It represents our country. It has a patriotic theme. It highlights the accomplishments of the Jamaican people. It’s like “Born in The USA” for Jamaicans.

A lot of [our] music, the theme is love and getting along peacefully. Through values, making the quality of life worthwhile. The spirit of our music has given people hope and strength in their darkest hour. I hope to leave that legacy for people. memorable

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) Politics should not be emotional. Running the government ought to be strictly a pencil-pushing, get-things-done affair, not this epic battle over ideas. It’s because people can’t separate their emotions from their politics that Bush got re-elected—without unreasoning fear and blind faith, he wouldn’t have stood a chance. This week, don’t let your practical head stuff get too intermixed with all the sloppy, illogical heart stuff. There are times when it’s good to let one influence the other, to revel in the gorgeous mess that usually results. But this ain’t one of them. Keep your brain’s business and your soul’s passions as separate as church and state are supposed to be in the White House.

If you feel that you have been potentially exposed to HIV and would like Free, Confidential and Anonymous testing call the Maui AIDS Foundation at 242-4900. It is important to know your HIV status so that you do not unknowingly pass the virus to others, also early detection is vital to your health and treatment. The Maui AIDS Foundation now offers Drop-In HIV Counseling and Testing (No appointment necessary) Drop in hours are Mon.-Fri. 8:30am to 4:30pm, Wed. 8:30am to 7pm 1935 Main Street, Wailuku For more information on HIV/AIDS, STD’s including Viral Hepatitis and HIV Counseling and Testing call the Maui AIDS Foundation at 242-4900. In Hana call 248-7801, Lanai 5656722, and Molokai 553-9086.

PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) Unrealistic romance is the name of the game this weekend. This ain’t a bad thing, at all. By all means, indulge yourself with soft lighting and long, soul-melting staring matches. Don’t read too much into it, though; enjoy the moments thoroughly, but resist the urge to make promises that may wither under the harsh fluorescents of the coming week. If, by next Thursday, you’re still feeling the way you did while pouring red wine down each others’ throats on the candlelit bearskin hearth rug, then swear eternal fealty, endless adoration, or whatever feels right—but not before.

TO ADVERTISE

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) You may wrack your brain this week, trying to recall if you’ve recently eaten oysters, or somehow consumed powdered rhinoceros horn. You’ll probably want to come up with some explanation for this off-the-hook horniness. Stop looking suspiciously around the office trying to figure out who slipped Viagra into your morning coffee. It’s actually just you (and the naughty planetary influences you’re subject to). Indulge your lascivious urges. Why not? If you don’t currently have a regular lover or fuckbud, there’s nothing wrong with a long weekend of self-pleasure, or a well-handled, no illusions one-night stand.

Call 661-3786

TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) The unrequited love thing is so tired and boring. Please resist falling into that trap (again). It’s going to be a yawning open for you this week, thanks to some crap that’s going on in the stars. Generally mistrust any attractions that spring up (or dramatically intensify) this week. They’re probably screwed: Either your blossoming crush is focused on someone you secretly know you can’t have, or it has nothing to do with the actual person—it’s all about what you’re projecting onto her, or him. Neither should you abandon these feelings. They could be real. They might even have long-term potential. My point is that there’s no way to know, just now. Wait it out. You’ll know in two weeks’ time whether this is something to jump at, or run away from.

FAX NUMBER 808.661-0446

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Announcing that you’ve changed your mind about something won’t raise many eyebrows; you’re notoriously flexible about your ideas and opinions. However, trying to force your brand new viewpoint on others will shock (and, most likely, offend) those you subject your zealotry to—not only because it’s completely out of character, but also because it’s in bad taste. Oh, you know that this time you’re right, probably more right than you’ve ever been, but still—let it settle for a while before you go spreading the good word. Now you just seem brainwashed and culty. In a couple of weeks or months you’ll seem either batshit crazy—or 100% right.

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22)

classifieds@mauitime.com

Cancers, as a tribe, have a special mix of down-to-earth practicality and whacked out emotions which can lead to some fascinating and brilliant innovations, along with many, many messes (which have their own appeal). The trouble is, you rarely deliberately apply this combination to anything outside yourself (like, say, designing a new piece of playground equipment, or coming up with an effective way to protest the government), so people almost never get a glimpse of this cool brand of creativity. This week, escape your own fascinating but limited inner world and bring your faculties to bear on situations that will actually, tangibly affect other people (preferably in a positive way).

WEBSITE

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) You’re lucky this week. I don’t know why; you’ve just got this glow about you, like good things are going to happen. Happy accidents. Be flexible and open to them. Try new things. You’ll probably never get the results you expect, but the surprises will be even better. I can almost guarantee it. Be alert to these startling outcomes, because they could be openings to new paths you’d never before considered—didn’t even know existed, in fact—which are actually exactly your flavor. Don’t miss these turn-offs from the highway you’re on. They’re the kinds of detours that make the whole trip worthwhile.

MAILING

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) If you were a door-to-door salesperson this week, you’d make a fortune. You can talk anyone into anything right now. Be careful not to abuse this power (too much), though, because once it fades, the people you talked out of their underwear, jobs, or safe, comfortable lives might hate you for it, and seek revenge. Go ahead and convince the bartender to give you free drinks, or your boss to give everyone an extra-long lunch hour. But when it comes to changing someone’s mind about anything that’s important, be sure that the consequences will be more good than bad—because you’ll have to live with them either way.

658 Front Street #126A-7278

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) You’ve got so many strings in your hands, I can’t tell if you’re some kind of puppet master, professional knitter, or sailor. I don’t know if you can make people dance, get them naked (by unraveling their sweaters), hoist sails to exotic locales, or all three. All I know is: you’ve got power. Will you exercise it? Should you? I don’t know. What I do know is that being connected to so many people and situations may make you powerful, but it also makes you responsible. Hadn’t thought about it that way yet? Well, consider it before you go pulling strings and making things happen. I think you’re ready for that responsibility, but—do you?

Love is the answer, you’ll probably decide this week. That’s because the planets have brewed up an intense dose of high-grade Ecstasy for you. Call and visit everyone you know, just to tell them how much you adore them. Sure, you’ll get funny looks—someone might even be concerned enough to slip you the number to the suicide hotline—but so what? Most people will be pleasantly surprised (beneath their initial discomfort) to receive this kind of effusiveness from you. Don’t miss this chance to spill your guts and wax poetic, because who knows when your next one might be?

NEWS

It’s not exactly A Christmas Carol, but you ought to identify with Ebenezer this week anyway, as unlikely spirits provide you with an unsettling picture of an alternate reality; how things would be if you managed to truly become who you think you want to turn into. The weird thing is, you may not like what you see. Take these (possibly disturbing) visions to heart and consider how your personal aspirations could affect the people around you, and create unanticipated ripples in your life. You needn’t turn aside completely from the evolutionary journey you embarked on a while back. But shifting a few degrees in either direction might mean the difference between finding paradise and getting completely lost.

SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) Everything is sex. We know this—your problem is that it’ll be hard to view it in any other light this week, given the fact that Mars and Venus are having a nonstop fuckfest in your sign. Sexuality is the lens through which you’re blessed or doomed to see the world right now. It’s not so bad—it’s bound to get you laid a bunch, after all—but for those who aren’t quite so one-track as you, it could get a bit old, so you might want to keep your filthy thoughts to yourself. In other words, you can’t help what you see, nor how you see it, but you can keep from saying it all out loud, or worse, acting it out. Restraint (no, not restraints, you horndog) can be sexy. Try it.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways—chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming “WOOHOO—what a ride!” -Unknown Last Wednesday, Sonja and I went to a winemaker’s dinner at the Rusty Harpoon in Ka’anapali. It was a deliciously crafted, seven-course meal that Chef Suzette Metcalfe created to accompany Hahn Estates’ juiciest of reds and whites. We sat at a table with about a dozen folk, all a bit older than us and visiting. They happily badgered us for information about the island and our lifestyle here. We got drunk. I was sick for the next few days—not “hungover” sick, more like “achy, whiny cold” sick, thank you very much. So I relied on my friends TBB and BJ to fill me in on what would have been a very big Holoholo outing on Friday night. “We missed you at the MauiFest, among other outings of the evening,” said BJ. “We behaved inappropriately in our seats and pissed off a bunch of people by talking loud and attempting to smoke marijuana. So we took our boisterous group over to the food area and tried everything from chow fun to beef brisket followed up with beer and ice cream. We were the young ones in the crowd for once! After bailing on the blues jam, we tried unsuccessfully to sneak into the Lahainaluna High School football game at the War Memorial to catch the final touchdown, but they wanted us to pay full price in the final seconds, so we watched through the fence instead. Go Luna’s! After hightailing it out of the parking lot we went to the SandBar in Paia to catch the metal show with Khrinj and Anesthesia. We stayed long enough to linger over my tasty Guinness, get a Heather update from Joker, watch Kai play the drums, and smoke a cigarette with Nancy before heading for the drag race party at Maui Raceway Park. As we drove down the dark and dusty roads, TBB picked up on a flatbed truck with a drummer playing in it as it drove—it was The Easy. We followed behind and soon enough we were a caravan of 10 cars that parked in an undisclosed party area. Some folks jumped out of the flatbed, set up a living room on the ground complete with lamps and sofas and the party was off and running. Dave started to pick up on an adventurous tourist chick with his beer goggles on so we thought it best to make a break and it was just in time. We passed five cop cars on our way out. We flopped down at home where I promptly made the world’s best spam fried rice and TBB played THUG2 and convinced Dave that it was 5 a.m. when it was only 3.” I missed out on some other happenings on Saturday, too, and I didn’t like that so much. So I doubled up on meds and hit Hapa’s in Kihei on Sunday to see The Visionaries. I mustered up all the energy I could to get dressed—i.e. show a respectable amount of cleavage and wear lipstick. I figured I would just go for a half-hour, enough time to see what’s going on and then return to my sick bed in Lahaina. But as soon as I rounded the Pali before Ma’alaea, traffic came to a dead stop. Unfortunately, I left Lahaina with just enough gas to make it to Ma’alaea so I couldn’t turn around. I was stuck. For two hours. By the time traffic got going again, I was still intent on making it all the way to Hapa’s. Call it vigilance, sheer determination or strength of spirit. Yeah, okay, call it lolo holo. Whatevs. The Visionaries ended up being a really tight, positive hip-hop crew. It was a great show and I was glad I went. But after a friend asked me if I had “Holoholobots”— basically, people I could commission to go out and report back to me—I said no, not really. After that big night BJ went out on, she and TBB won’t be going anywhere for a while. I need to recruit. MTW
