HYPHEN THIS! I picked up a copy of Maui Time last week while on vacation and liked it a lot. I’ve been a journalist for 20 years myself. One small thing I wanted to point out. The cover statement “Maui’s only independent & locally-owned newspaper” does not need a hyphen. “Locally” is an adverb, and the “ly” at the end of adverbs takes the place of hyphens. In other words, you could write it is “a local-owned paper” or “a locally owned paper.” You can see how the first one needs a hyphen for clarity, but the second doesn’t. Don’t take this as one of those nit-picky letters readers write to gloat about any little typo they find. I wouldn’t point out a one-time mistake or even bring it up if I didn’t like the paper, but this is right on the cover and it’s a standing head that’s going to be used every week. -Gary Warth, via email The Editor responds: It took some doing—couple meetings, about 10 pounds of paperwork, some more meetings, then those endless conference calls with the New York and San Francisco offices—but we made the change. Thanks.
BUT WE LIKE IMAGINARY FRIENDS Regarding your “Spaceman” story (Mar. 3, 2005): There is no such thing as an “imaginary friend.” However, there ARE visitors from non-ordinary reality. If you grow out of your apparent hipster phase you will learn that it is not “mediocre” to be short and fat (or big nosed and Jewish or any other stereotype). Look to new ideas and possibilities in consciousness. There’s more to life than being hip and sharp-witted. Of course it’s just fine that Mr. Nidle’s ideas don’t match your own although trying to criticize a person based on the way they look is weak and a bit outdated don’t ya think? As one of the few rags on Maui I hope you will choose to be a little more broad in your vision.
Or just write about subjects that are in your field of understanding? Perhaps the teeny weeny club scene and all the dope people that hang out therein or all the great trips one can take on ayahuasca and pretend you’re really spiritual... There’s lots of subjects and you won’t have to bother insulting unhip thinkers like Spaceman. Good Luck. -11:11 Art Studio, via email The Editor responds: Actually 11:11 Art Studio—which I seriously doubt is your real name--we’ve progressed from the apparent hipster phase to the apparent pupa phase. But thanks for caring.
CORRECTION The two quotes describing anti-Superferry activists that we attributed to Honolulu Advertiser reporter Timothy Hurley in our March 3, 2005 story “So-Called Environmentalists” were incorrect. The first quote negligently misstated the lead paragraph of Hurley’s Feb. 20, 2005 story describing Superferry opponents. The second quote should have been identified as an amalgam of anti-activist statements collected during an Advertiser survey, which were reported in Hurley’s Feb. 22, 2005 story.

To the impatient driver coming out of Kihei towards Waikapu on Honoapiilani Highway: did you get your license out of a Cracker Jack box? You didn’t want to follow in traffic behind me so you had to steer right on the merging lane to pass me. You chose to speed up, rather than wait and merge when the way was clear to get into my lane. But you kept driving on the right—even when the merge lane ran out! Didn’t you think it was odd that you were the only guy driving on the sidewalk as you made your way to Waikapu? Do you also know that, at your speed, all you had to do was clip my vehicle to send your vehicle spinning out of control? Unlike you, you see, I was traveling with my family and their safety came first.

Farewell Jimmy and Joe
University of Hawaii plan means more money, less students My fellow students and I hadn’t been standing on Ka’ahumanu Ave. in Kahului for long when the juggler jogged by. Actually, he wasn’t juggling at that point, but was just holding his balls. He took a look at our anti-tuition hike placards warning “Equality Through Education,” “Tuitions Hiked, Dreams Ruined” and the ever popular “Starving Student Will Work for Tuition.” “Give it a rest,” he said, then juggled away. The University of Hawaii Board of Regents’ plans to jack up community college resident tuition from the current $47 per unit to a whopping $89 per unit by
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 Lahaina Fish Co.
Location 531 Front St, Lahaina
Date Nov. 22, 2004
Time 1:58 p.m. The quality of the “employee meal” should be an example of basic standards for any restaurant. Two out of 15 Lahaina Fish Company employees apparently became sick after being fed mahi mahi meals. That led to an inspection after they filed a report with the Disease Investigation Unit of the Department of Health. It’s unclear which company delivered the questionable fish as the carrying box was thrown away the day prior to the investigation. The sanitarians reported no temperature or preparation violations with the food being served to customers. But the health department did inform management about the possible food-poisoning case. The managers claimed that no fish is prepared after two days but conceded that the subject fish might have been there for three days. The managers also insisted that there are “no leftovers served to employees or used at all.” A sample piece of fish was given for testing, though it was not part of the fish involved in the case. -G. Poccia
Everyone learns how to write in college 2011 have become big news. After all, that translates into an increase of around $2,000 per term for full-time university students. But missing from the mainstream media discussion is that the hikes will almost certainly lead to a decrease in college enrollment. Yet UH school officials don’t seem concerned about that. A tuition proposal briefing linked to the University of Hawaii web site (www.hawaii.edu/ovppp/tuition) claims that a steady tuition rise of three and a half percent in 2004 has translated into more students attending MCC. Of course, the proposed tuition raise will be vastly greater than a meager three and half percent—we’re talking about a better than 14 percent increase each year. Can anyone say “financial assistance?” This comes at a bad time. According to the same website mentioned above, the U.S. Department of Education is restricting the eligibility for the popular PELL Grants. While President George W. Bush has announced that the maximum amount of money available from the PELL grant will rise $100 a year for five years, eventually reaching a total of $4,550, it will be more difficult for students under 24 and still considered to be dependants to qualify for that money. Students in Hawaii have actually enjoyed some of the lowest tuition rate hikes, averaging just three and half percent a year compared to most states that see 10 percent hikes. In 1996, UH watched an immense 50 percent tuition hike translate into a six percent drop in enrollment. A year later, the Hawaii University system raised tuition again, this time by 20 percent—another four percent of students vanished.
Tuition Rate Hikes On March 31, the UH Board of Regents will meet at noon at the MCC Student Lounge to discuss the proposed rate hikes. It will be the last opportunity for the public to be heard on this matter. Public meetings have already been held at the Hilo and Manoa campuses and will continue at Leeward Community College on Oahu, Kauai Community College and MCC by the end of the month. After the Maui meeting the Board of Regents will make their decision. Right now anti-hike organizers are trying to get as many MCC students to the Maui hearing as possible. Their goal is to drive home the point that the whole concept of gradual tuition increases—as described by the Hawaii University system— is to be “fairer to a greater number of students.” As the theory goes, development of our colleges will benefit everyone. But increases that nearly double the cost of getting an education may leave many students with a diminished quality of life or worse, simply unable to afford college. That’s why we won’t be giving it a rest anytime soon. MTW
After a mostly successful four-year run, the comedy team of Jimmy and Joe performed their last routines together during the Mar. 9, 2005 Maui County Liquor Commission meeting. It was the end of a five-year contract for Jimmy—aka Commission Chairman James Gomes,—but Commissioner Joseph “Joe” Tanaka still has another year with the network. The mugging and banter that marked their comedy duo went on virtually non-stop during their show’s hour-and-a-half series finale—a result that was partially due to the presence of Akaku’s three video cameras. But it was nice to see the team save some of their A material for the end. Joe began with one of his more popular bits— the questioning of the prospective licensee, who in this case was Michael Capuano of Wow-wee Maui’s Kava Bar & Grill in Kahului. “What kind of customers will kava attract?” Joe asked Capuano, who seemed more than willing to play the straight man. “Actually, the mayor was in last night having some,” he said. “Put it on record!” said Joe, prompting the rest of the Commission and some of the audience to laugh. A few moments later, Capuano explained that kava isn’t a hallucinogenic substance at all. “I had 17 cups to test it out,” he said. “You look it,” said Jimmy, still wielding his trademark wit. Then he pointed to his longtime partner. “Actually, moving on,” said Jimmy, “he’s the one who really needs some.” Near the end of the meeting, Joe fell back on the “senile old man” routine that’s made him such a legend around LC headquarters by suddenly pointing out the Akaku cameras. “You’ve been here two hours and you just noticed the cameras?!” asked Jimmy, prompting great belly-laughs from the audience. “He just woke up!” said another commissioner, trying to muscle in on the act. But Joe stayed strong. “He’s the only guy wearing red,” he said of Jimmy a few minutes later. “How come?” “He finally woke up,” Jimmy said, shaking his head slowly. The meeting ended shortly thereafter. The network has yet to announce the show’s replacement. Goodnight Jimmy and Joe, wherever you are.
The Jimmy and Joe Show will air for the last time on Friday, Mar. 18 at 7:30 p.m on Akaku’s Vision TV, Channel 53. MTW

MAUICOUNTY WEDNESDAY, MAR. 9 Well, the civil war raging throughout the county over the future of the Akaku public access cable channels seems to be coming along nicely, according to a piece in today’s Maui News. In fact, the station’s board meeting last night on state efforts to divert Akaku money to education went on for hours—nearly as long, in fact, as one of the county planning hearings it often televises gavel to gavel. Even Mayor Alan Arakawa got into the act, blistering station manager Sean McLaughlin for “squabbling about a little bit of money” ($700,000, to be exact). Then Councilwoman Jo Anne Johnson stepped up to rip developer Everett Dowling—the father of the movement to slash Akaku’s funding in the first place. Of course, Dowling wasn’t at the hearing. That’s because, as he’s said in the past (see “Everett’s Bills,” Mar. 3), this whole issue has nothing to do with speech… An unrelated story in the same News issue notes that our honorable state senators have seen fit to pass a bill boosting tax credits for filmmakers coming to Hawaii from four percent of their production expenses to a whopping 15 percent if they shoot on Oahu and 20 percent if they head to Neighbor Islands. Yay for Hawaii! Of course, their esteemed colleagues over in the state House see loving Hawaii a bit differently, and let die a bill that would have banned smoking on state beaches and public areas.
THURSDAY, MAR. 10 It’s Day 24 of Lahaina resident Jason Reardon’s ban from visiting Ka’anapali
BY ANTHONY PIGNATARO
Beach. In court yesterday, Judge Joseph Cardozo extended that ban until Reardon’s trial begins on April 11. And there’s every indication that the state Attorney General’s office will sentence the 19-year-old to Hawaii’s first ever lifetime ban from a public district. Reardon’s apparently unpardonable crime? That would be allegedly selling marijuana to an undercover police officer. Yeah, sounds like a crime against humanity to me. And the fact that it happened on Maui, in an area populated with tourists, is just too insane to believe.
FRIDAY, MAR. 11 Congressman Ed Case (D, 2nd District) just faxed over a list of pork he managed to secure for Hawaii from a monster $300 billion transportation bill just passed out of the U.S. House of Representatives. Maui’s cut included $3 million for a Lahaina Bypass road and another cool mil for the Kahului Airport Access Road. To be honest, I’m amazed Case was able to bring home such amounts, considering the hysterical antiDemocrat bias that infects the House’s Republican leadership. It’s so bad, even former GOP congressional attack dog Newt Gingrich is appalled. “Gingrich himself in recent interviews has been openly critical of House Republicans for blocking the Democrats from even offering amendments to bills on the House floor,” wrote veteran reporter Elizabeth Drew in the Mar. 24 issue of The New York Review of Books. “The Republicans have carried oneparty rule to unprecedented lengths. They have often excluded Democrats from writing bills in committee and from House-Senate conferences on bills both chambers have passed.”
OVERHEARD... “I WONDER HOW MUCH IT SUCKS TO BE PART OF THE UGLY CROWD.” -Girl talking at Hecocks in Lahaina, Mar. 13
COCONUT WIRELESS THE WEEK IN REVIEW
SUNDAY, MAR. 13 Front-page story in today’s News says property values are up statewide. The story contains other shocking revelations like the fact that local public officials—unlike the public officials from every other municipality in the U.S.—“are having to consider demands for tax relief along with resident’s demands for services in balancing how much to give back.” Man, Hawaii’s cutting edge on this whole taxes vs. services thing.
MONDAY, MAR. 14 Finally, people are starting to say some nice things about Maui’s glamorous resorts. And not just any resort, but the Grand Wailea Resort Hotel & Spa. Man, people really trash that place all the time—so much so you’d think the country actually distrusted rich people and their need to spend huge sums of money on garish opulence, as though that were a bad thing. Anyway, The Maui News finally ran a big front-page story on the general grandness of the massive Grand Wailea’s recycling practices. Now I suppose that even “green” resorts like the Grand Wailea still suck up gobs of water and energy in their quest to cater to the whims of world’s affluent, but isn’t it worth it? Shouldn’t making sure the wealthy and powerful have everything they need be a concern to us all?
TUESDAY, MAR. 15
SATURDAY, MAR. 12 A little late, but the Maui County Council has decided to weigh in on the Superferry issue by saying—unanimously, in fact—that the state should order a full environmental assessment before the big boats start disgorging cars at Kahului Harbor. The resolution, reported in today’s Maui News, carries about as much legal weight as a drunk yelling from a street corner— especially considering that the state Senate has already decreed that an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) isn’t necessary. Still, it was a generous gesture. And it even put Superferry CEO John Garibaldi’s panties in a twist. In fact, he told the council that a full EIS would “cause the immediate failure of the project” since his investors have demanded an agreement by June 30. Really? And they would never, ever promise you money again if the state legislature suddenly decided that an EIS was in order? Some CEO you are.
News of the legislative attack on Akaku has apparently gone nationwide. “[W]e at the Alliance for Community Media are distressed and saddened to hear of the dispute which pits Maui Community College (MCC) against Akuku: Maui Community Television,” wrote Anthony Riddle, the Washington, D.C.based Alliance’s executive director in a letter dated today. The letter is filled with vanilla think-tank speak, but does come down on the side of our public access cable providers. “Operations run by separately incorporated non-profits like Akaku: Maui Community TV offer the freedom and community control we all value while protecting the government and college from law-suits [sic] and political pressures,” he added. Protection from political pressures?! I so hope he’s kidding. Anthony Pignataro has long felt Hollywood should make more Speed films. MTW

three patrol-car crashes.
Producers announced in February that they were still planning to bring the 3year-old London stage show Jerry Springer, The Opera to America in early 2006, despite increasingly vituperative protests of religious groups. The show features “Jerry” mediating confessions in hell between Satan, God, Jesus, Mary, and various biblical characters, complete with a raucous audience periodically chanting “Jer-ree! Jer-ree!” Reportedly, 300 to several thousand curse words are in the script and the show’s Jesus is a pudgy, diaperwearing gay man who is apparently coprophilic. When the BBC televised a showing, it reported 50,000 complaints, with some physical threats directed to the station’s staff and their families.
FENG SHUI IN DECLINE In January, police in Hong Kong arrested two men on suspicion of stealing a boatload of spiritually regarded pine trees, which they allegedly intended to sell to feng shui practitioners; the scheme failed when their boat, apparently lacking feng shui’s “harmony” and “positive energy,” broke down. Also in January, the Hong Kong company Life Enhance introduced briefs and boxer shorts that it says will bring harmony by virtue of the dragon on the front—that gives balance in this, the “year of the rooster.” Said a Life Enhance spokeswoman, “If you have a dragon on your underpants, you will be protected.”
LEAST COMPETENT COPS Circleville, Ohio, police officer Troy Brungs, 35, was still on the job in January despite having in the last five years three suspensions, seven written reprimands, eight written orders for counseling and
CUTTING-EDGE COPS A downtown problem in Manila is that pedestrians create a traffic hazard when many of them rush into the street almost indiscriminately to seek rides from passing cars. Thus, in January, police began to attach large wet blankets to some official vehicles roaming the streets, with the blankets flapping against the pedestrians, soiling their clothes and herding them back to the sidewalks. Pedestrians who remain in the street after being flayed are arrested.
FINER POINTS OF THE LAW In a December Rocky Mountain News report, Colorado’s one-size-fits-all juvenilesex-offender program was widely criticized as one of the nation’s least sensible, with restrictions for a one-time incident of adolescent curiosity nearly as harsh as for teenage predators. In the former category was “Victor,” who is barred from public venues where younger children go, must file an action plan with his treatment team to visit other venues, must phone his parents hourly, must avert his eyes if he inadvertently sees young children, and has formal requirements for which his parents must pay—group therapy weekly, individual therapy twice a week and periodic polygraph tests. Victor’s exasperated therapist said he considers the boy “normal.”

Capital Madness The slow demise of capital punishment
Strong preference will be given to:
One of the most famous Taliban executions was one they didn’t carry out. The accused, convicted by a Sharia court of raping and murdering a young woman, sat in the mud near the goalpost of a soccer stadium in Kabul, his arms tightly bound to a chair. The victim’s father was brought before the condemned man to determine his fate: Sharia law gave him that right. If he gave the go-ahead, the man would be dispatched with a gunshot to the back of the head, providing satisfaction and entertainment to thousands. The murdered woman’s father could
we squeamish Americans support the death penalty if he had to watch the terror in the eyes of the condemned on TV? Murderers and probably rapists deserve to die. But, as has been proven by the release of dozens of “killers” and “rapists” exonerated by newfound evidence, the courts cannot always determine who has killed or raped with 100 percent certainty. A state that has killed one innocent person is forever morally bankrupt. It’s better to let a million criminals go free than to punish one who hasn’t done anything wrong. Those who make the Napoleonic argument—gotta break a few eggs to make an omelet—are no better than the murderers they
WHEN I ASKED PRISONERS BEING HELD IN A JAIL FOR CAPITAL CRIMES WHETHER THEY HAD REGRETS, THEY SMILED: “ONLY THAT I GOT CAUGHT.” also opt for an intermediate punishment. It was fairly common for the aggrieved to demand goats or a period of time working as an indentured servant in lieu of the death penalty. Afghan culture demands stoicism, even bravado, from those facing death. When I asked prisoners being held in a jail for capital crimes whether they had regrets, they smiled: “Only that I got caught.” Would you do it again? “Definitely.” So the crowd was surprised when the murderer begged his victim’s father to spare him. “I’m so sorry,” he blubbered, “please don’t kill me, I’ll do anything you want. Please!” He went on like that until the old man kicked over the murderer’s chair. He spat on the ground. “How could I kill you?” he asked. “You have already died as a man.” He went home, and the spectators drifted away. The story goes that the killer’s disgusted family threw him out onto the streets, where the coward died a beggar because no one would give him any money. It’s a harsh story. Yet the Taliban system of capital punishment, though barbaric, would be a distinct improvement over ours. It was certainly more honest. Instead of spinning fanciful and repeatedly dispelled tales that executions deter crime, the Taliban admitted that they killed killers to assuage their society’s lust for vengeance. That’s why they gave victims and survivors, rather than civil servants, the final say. Although they often assumed a carnival atmosphere in a society where stonings and amputations were the only entertainment, public executions required the public to assume personal responsibility for their bloodlust just by being there. Would
purport to judge. The death penalty relies on too many fictions—that the courts are always right, that defendants in capital cases have access to adequate legal representation and exculpatory evidence such as DNA tests, that housing prisoners is costlier than endless litigation—for a civilized country to keep it on the books. The abolition of the death penalty for children under 18 (following a three-year-old decision to stop executing the mentally disabled) is a positive step in the right direction. Besides removing the United States from the tiny list of kid-killing countries, which includes Iran, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and China, the Supreme Court’s decision recognizes the fact that the rest of the world matters. Acknowledging the “overwhelming weight of international opinion against [it],” the court wrote: “Our determination that the death penalty is disproportionate punishment for offenders under 18 finds confirmation in the stark reality that the United States is the only country in the world that continues to give official sanction to the juvenile death penalty.” Execution was originally touted as an appropriate adult punishment for children guilty of particularly heinous “adult crimes.” Yet the 22 children who have been executed during the last 20 years—13 in Texas—were not serial killers who drank soup out of their victims’ skulls, but kids convicted of garden-variety mayhem. Though welcome, the latest narrowing merely reemphasizes capital punishment’s intrinsic absurdity. Is a 17-1/2-year-old murderer so different from an 18-year-old that the former should have his life spared while the latter should not? Law should strive for rationality, a goal largely realized through consistency. The death penalty is inherently inconsistent and therefore intrinsically irrational. MTW

‘True Local Surf Shop’ How Zane Monteleone made his dream come true
Monteleone (right) and his father hang at the shop Surf shops in Lahaina seem to come and go like the trade winds. But one local owner wants to break that trend. His name is Zane Monteleone. Born and bred on Maui, he’s a 22-year-old Lahainaluna High School graduate. He’s spent the last two years building his InZane Surf Co. into a shop he hopes will survive. “I wanted to have a shop that would allow me to live in Lahaina for the rest of my life,” Monteleone says. “I wanted to do something that I really love and surfing is what I am passionate about.”
InZane Surf Co. Located in the Lahaina Center on Wainee St. in Lahaina. For more information, call 661-4289. Monteleone’s parents have worked in the retail business since he was born. He attended Kamehameha III, Lahaina Intermediate and Lahainaluna. It was in high school that Monteleone says he realized that there were plenty of resources for students preparing for college, but not nearly as much for those who wanted to work right after graduating— those who wanted to become chefs, hair stylists, for instance. When he graduated, Monteleone went straight into the restaurant business, starting at Lahaina’s Hard Rock Café. He says his time there brought him knowledge that would later help him out—mostly, how to run a business. When hired, he was just 17. He also says he sought advice from friends and family who had started their own small businesses. After a few years in the restaurant industry, Monteleone decided to break out and start on his own. He thought of opening a surf shop, then
began working through what he’d need to do to get it started. “I started making surf designs and potential logos for the store,” Monteleone said. “One day I was hanging out with my Uncle Max and he called me InZane. It just stuck with me.” The toughest part was saving enough money to start buying merchandise. Once the stuff came in, he went to work putting his logo on hats, collared shirts, t-shirts, shorts and swimsuits. The seemingly obvious site for his store was Front Street, but Monteleone ended up leasing a space in the Lahaina Center next to the Nagasako store. “I want to keep my shop local,” he says. “Local as in a true local surf shop where people can come in, talk story, watch surf videos and talk about surfing trips. There is too much commotion on Front Street. I’d rather have local traffic. Plus, I think it’s cool that I am the only surf shop in Lahaina that isn’t corporately owned. All of those surf shops look like a department store with surfboards on the wall. I want to keep my store original.” It certainly is that. Inside there are murals depicting a huge orange octopus, mermaid and sunset. My favorite is the mushrooms that adorn the left and right walls. The clothing is colorful and welcoming. There are the usual trucker hats, pin-stripped collared shirts, bikinis, camouflage shorts, short skirts and bags throughout the store. Not so usual is the display case containing stickers that say, “Donkeys go home” and “I like ooph please” as well as beautiful jewelry from India. Television sets are on non-stop, showing surfers catching waves all over the world. Monteleone even put in a table with chairs to encourage customers to sit down and talk story. “With strong support from ‘ohana and friends, you can achieve anything you want in life,” he says. So far, there’s every reason to believe he’s right. MTW

Whether surfing at Kanaha or swimming the waters along Baldwin beach, I always appreciate knowing there are lifeguards there to lend a hand. Just in case. To find out more about our hunky red-clad protectors, I spoke with David Gallagher and Tony Colletta. They’ve been county lifeguards for 11 and five years, respectively. Maui Time: Between the two of you, you cover all three North Shore beaches. Tell me more about where you work… Colleta: I work mostly at Baldwin and Ho’okipa. I’m at Ho’okipa two days a week. It’s a high percentage of high-level surfers and windsurfers. Gallagher: I work at Kanaha. Kanaha and Ho’okipa are internationally known places. Both are very cosmopolitan and international. For this reason, it helps to have a grasp on several different languages. Communication is very important, especially in a dangerous situation. [David mumbles something in German starting with “Werd Deich” and I look at him quizzically.] Gallagher: It means “Sit down and hold on.” Colleta: Or “Pelegro por favor.” That means something like “There’s danger!” in Spanish. Gallagher: Sometimes you have to speak the language of the person you are helping because they don’t necessarily respect you otherwise. With different personalities you have to become more commanding. There’s a very fine balance between being professional and polite and being assertive. Still, we are rescue officers, not enforcement officers. We have no legal authority to stop anyone from doing anything. According to our captain, David Emerson, we can only warn and advise. So we lean a lot on communicating with people before they make the decision to do something stupid. There’s an old saying, “God watches out for drunks, sailors and fools.” Sometimes they do find themselves in exceptionally good hands. Does this end up translating into a lot of water rescues? Colleta: First aids are probably the most common assistance that we provide, whether it’s for reef cuts or boards colliding into people. Still, we do have water rescues at all the beaches—Kanaha, Baldwin and Ho’okipa. But each beach has its priorities. At Baldwin, there’s large surf but it’s mostly shore break. So it’s not uncommon for someone to get stuck in a rip or pounded by the shore break causing spinal or cervical [neck] injuries. At Ho’okipa, you have large surf and

everything that goes along with it… broken boards, broken leashes, someone swimming in. Ho’okipa is one of the busiest beaches in the county, has the most consistent surf in the county and has the largest surf for a surfing beach in the county. You have large surf, a populated beach with a number of different surf spots out there and that all adds up to a lot of action and a lot of rescues. So we all stay pretty active over there. David works at Kanaha where you tend to do more outer reef surf rescues with the jet ski. Tell me about the challenges you face out there. Gallagher: In the winter, a really
challenging situation is having to swim your jet ski in when it breaks down in big surf. See, when the surf gets really big, there’s a lot of debris in the water. When there’s debris in the water, just a little stick can shut your whole jet ski down. When this happens and you’ve got 20foot waves breaking, you have to say to yourself, “Shhh. Calm down. It’s okay. You are trained well enough to deal with whatever happens.” I stand on the shoulders of giants. The giants are the people who have taught me how to operate a ski, how to go out there. These are all men younger than me, but I have the humility to learn from
them because they have more experience than me. Colleta: I look at it as your life is depending on the jet ski. I’ve been out the last two biggest days in history at Jaws. It’s gnarly, you know. You put your life on that jet ski, and you’ve got 80-foot waves, and you are trying to get back in. I can’t even imagine. I feel scared just looking at waves that size from shore. Gallagher: These waves want to kill you. They want to crush you. And that’s just the ocean. And you respect their power and the fact that you don’t have that kind of power.

intelligence and training to deal with it. Colleta: It’s wild. Gallagher: Sometimes I think, “I’m not getting paid enough to do this!” Colleta: I don’t do it for the money. If you do lifeguarding for the money, then you are doing the wrong thing. Gallagher: When someone that I am rescuing says “Hey, I can’t pay you for a rescue,” I say, “You pay taxes don’t you? This is your tax dollars working for you. This is the county government working for you, serving you.” Sounds like you take great pride in your work. Gallagher: I have to say I’m in love with my job. It’s absolutely one of the best jobs I’ve ever had. I really like helping people and I like being in a situation where I’m forced to push my own physical envelope, like when I’m doing a rescue in big surf. I like to be scared. But it’s really challenging to be really scared and not be able to show it. You don’t want the person that’s really in trouble to know that you are scared because it doesn’t help them. They are usually tired and panicky and you need to come across as professional as you can. How do you prepare yourselves for these types of situations? Colleta: We stay in shape and this makes our job easier doing rescues. I jog, surf, bodysurf and skateboard a lot so that

power and the fact that you don’t have that kind of power. keeps me pretty active. Gallagher: Physical stamina is definitely a priority. This job demands the discipline of staying in top physical shape. We are the only civil servants who are put to a physical test each year. Colleta: A lot of the big wave surfers say they are in their top physical shape in their 40s. So I look at what I’m doing now and figure I’ll probably be in my top physical shape when I’m 44! [David strikes a pose and shows off his fine form at 52.] Okay, boys, let’s keep this PG-13. Tell me about your scariest moment as a lifeguard.
Pleasant Island Holidays “Your Best Travel Value”
Gallagher: My scariest moment? It was actually breaking up a fight. What some people don’t realize is that we don’t just deal with the ocean. Colleta: Domestic violence, drug addicts, fights… Gallagher: Theft, you name it. If it happens in a public park, we respond. We are the representatives of the county. Colleta: We are the first ones on any scene, whether it’s a drowning, a cardiac on the beach, a fight in the park or on the beach. We see the initial problem. Then we get our back-up. We work as a team with firefighters, paramedics and police officers. There are some really amazing guys that work in this county. Let’s talk shark sightings for a moment. I’ve spent many hours dangling my toes in the waters of Kanaha, just wondering how you guys know where the sharks are? Gallagher: Because Kanaha is close to the airport, we get pilots flying over who see big, big, big sharks out on the reef. They will call into the tower, “Hey there is an 18-foot tiger out here. Or, there’s a 15foot hammerhead out here!” Then the tower will call 911 and, because we are on the 911 system, 911 will call us. I know that you post signs to inform the public. But what about divers who may already be out there? When divers have their tako and bleeding fish in a net, it’s like a calling card to
sharks that are out there feeding. So we go out there and pick divers up. That can be a bit tricky during low tide because you don’t know where that shark is. But you know one thing—that guy has speared a fish and it’s your responsibility to take care of everybody in the water. I feel good about this because I’ve been a diver, and because the old tradition of Hawaii is diving. It’s noble. It’s what Hawaii is really about. Surfing and fishing—those are the things that make us special in Hawaii so it makes me feel good to protect those people. That the job I’m doing is something worth doing. Gallagher: Tony, let me ask you this. Why do you like working where you work? Colleta: For one, I live on the North Shore. I do everything on the North Shore. If I can live and work and do all my activities within a few miles, what a perfect lifestyle that is. I surf, fish and bodysurf all within two miles of my house. The North Shore is a lot cooler. It’s not as populated. It’s just North Shore living. It’s a good way. I like a simple life. I like gardening, surfing, skateboarding and walking my dogs with my beautiful wife. That’s what I like to do. I also enjoy the North Shore community. The people on the North Shore are cool. The whole atmosphere makes for a good place to work. And, I get to work with guys who were born and raised on the North Shore. I did

Opihi than by anything else. People cut them off rocks with a knife and turn their backs on the ocean. Then they get hit by an ocean surge and it pulls them off the rocks. Gallagher: We have a saying here in Hawaii: “Never turn your back on the ocean. It’s disrespectful.” Tony, I think it’s your turn to ask David a question. Turn around is fair play. Colleta: Tell us, who is David Gallagher? Gallagher: I came to Maui in 1973 from Mendocino. I was a very serious street evangelist at the time. While in the Christian ministry, I had three dreams in a row and they all said the same thing to me. “You are not going to be a street preacher in New York City, you are going to go to Hawaii.” I decided to drop all the Christianity and get into making people laugh and playing music. Because nothing serves better than making people laugh. I’ve had a second job as an entertainer ever since. Before I was a lifeguard, I was a dive instructor. Two lifeguards said to me, “Gallagher, with all the rescues you do out in the ocean, why don’t you become a lifeguard? You’re a waterman.” I said, good idea! I was accepted as a lifeguard on Maui in 1994. If you like to help other people, this is the job. It’s a lifestyle, not a business. Colleta: It’s the best job in the entire world. Gallagher: It’s the best job in the entire world short of my other job as a singer/comedian/piano player. Colleta: Or dancing at bachelorette parties? I’m getting a visual. Well, I have to say that you two seem to have fun together. Gallagher: Yeah, Tony and I work pretty well together. Tony is funny. He’s an intelligent guy who laughs at my jokes. Colleta: I’m a real polite guy. MTW
all of my training through Maui County and learned a lot from them. But I learn so much firsthand from guys who have spent all of their lives in these waters right here. Gallagher: I grew up here from the age of 19. I’m 52 now. So I’ve spent most of my life here. And as a local haole guy, I’m always learning from the people of this island. They are so right on and have so much to share with us. They have so much good mana. A friend of mine used to wait tables in Ka’anapali. He told me that a tourist once pointed at Lanai and asked him if it was Japan. You deal with a lot of tourists—can you top that one? Colleta: The most unusual question I’ve ever been asked? “Is there water around the whole island?” was one of the best ones. “Are there sharks out there?” was another good one. Gallagher: I’ve got a couple more. One tourist asked, “What’s the elevation here?” I answered, “Ma’am it’s sea level.” Then there’s the occasional, “What island are we on?” I say, “Catalina.” Just kidding. Another favorite question we get a lot is “Are there sharks out there and should we be afraid of them?” I joke, “There are hammerheads, but I’m more concerned about the knuckleheads on shore.” Colleta: That’s what I always say. It’s more dangerous to drive. Gallagher: We have so much water activity that actually the predators out there are smart enough to distinguish between windsurfers, kite surfers and turtles. We have such rare incidents where sharks are being active in our waters. There is so much food for them out there they have no interest in the taste of rayon, styrofoam or human flesh. Statistically, the most dangerous animal in the ocean is the Opihi, the little abalone crustaceans that live on the rocks. Colleta: More people are killed by

Gambling with Guacamole The expanding Fiesta Time empire The whole world was gray. A steady rain was falling and it was actually chilly outside. My clothes were still wet after dashing in from the parking lot. Sitting by the window, wiping little droplets of water from my arms, I watched tourists clutching colorful umbrellas make their way through the downpour.
Fiesta Time 300 Ma’alaea Road, Ma’alaea, 244-5862. $

I was sitting inside Fiesta Time, waiting for a hot plate of food. Not the little taqueria Fiesta Time in Wailuku, where you sit on plastic chairs set against a counter and eat your meals out of Styrofoam containers, but the new Fiesta Time in Ma’alaea. I was sipping a Coke and waiting for my lunch, sitting in a chair at a table—one of a dozen or so—in a dining room with restrooms, food runners and bright piñatas hanging from the ceiling. It was nice to be sitting inside a climate-controlled room, what with the late winter storm blowing outside. My table gave me a peerless view of not just the quaint Ma’alaea shops, but also the harbor itself. On a day when the weather was more pleasant, from here it would be possible to enjoy lunch while watching whales splashing about. But not that day—choppy seas and brisk wind kept the harbor quiet. Before I go any further, I should explain that I greeted my visit to this second Fiesta Time with great ambivalence. A longtime fan of the original Fiesta Time, I’d pretty much concluded that it served the allaround best Mexican food on the island. That it was also among the least expensive may have helped my enthusiasm. It’s not “authentic” Mexican food, but it doesn’t need to be. If it’s delicious, what difference does its pedigree make? Besides, honest connoisseurs will say you can’t get authentic Mexican
The patented Fiesta Time hand-off food anywhere but Mexico. The shacks and taquerias that spring up around California’s East L.A. and Santa Ana are closer, but still just reproductions. Any time my work took me to Wailuku, I’d duck into Fiesta Time for a plate of chicken tacos or enchiladas or even some of their guacamole tacos. It didn’t really matter, since they were all equally good and I was far more interested in getting a couple scoops of rice and beans. I don’t know how they get the rice that fluffy or how much lard they pour into the beans to make them that creamy, and I don’t want to know. That they’re available when I walk in the door is all that’s important.
Hence my trepidation when I first heard stories from my friends that Fiesta Time was opening a second location. And in Ma’alaea, no less—home to pricey, touristy establishments like the Blue Marlin Harbor Front Grill and Ma’alaea Grill. Dark thoughts began to creep into my head. After all, Fiesta Time was now spreading a small, family-run kitchen across the island. I’d watched too many restaurants try to expand, only to discover their quality diminish in direct proportion to the number of new locations. I also began worrying that Fiesta Time would dull the kick of their guacamole and the bite of their carnitas for less adventurous palates.
But I braved the rain and chill and stopped in. You still order at the counter, but now there’s a fish tank to hold your attention while waiting in line. I ordered a chicken burrito— thank God they come with rice and beans on the side—and took a seat by the window. A few minutes later the woman who took my order brought me my food, along with one of those trademark Fiesta Time salsa bowls. Taking a deep breath, I pulled a plastic knife and fork and some napkins from the small basket on the table and dug in. My fears were groundless. Everything was as it should be. No reason to worry, unless of course they decide to open a third… MTW

EMPLOYEE OF THE
WEEK AS TOLD TO REESE QUICK
Mark Powers Geraghty Barista, Starbucks in Lahaina You probably know me already—the guy dancing his way through making your morning cup of joe. I came to Maui as a graduation present after getting my degree in performance art on the East Coast. When I called my parents to tell them how vacation was going they said, “By the way Mark, if you decide to stay, it’s okay with us.” And I did. In addition to Maui’s beauty, the lifestyle is so slow and relaxed. In Baltimore everything seems like it’s about time and competition. I’d been staying in Haiku for three weeks last May when I decided to go to a full moon party. A moonlit hike sounded like a good idea at the time, but I ended up falling off a cliff and lying paralyzed on the ground for about three hours before some hikers found me and called 911. The next few months were a blur of hospitals, surgeries and casts. I had to go back to the mainland. The doctors told me that most people would have died or at least been paralyzed in this situation, but I kept it out of my mind and pushed through. My family was with me the whole time. I think they took it harder than I did, but they knew I was a trooper. All we could do was hope. It was all so surreal and scary, but that’s the way life is supposed to be. After about four months, I was ready to come back to the island. My parents were a little worried but they were happy that I was living my life. When I came back I got a job at—you guessed it—Starbuck’s. I’ve been with the company for about four years, but the Lahaina store is totally different. It’s smaller and slower. I love making coffee and I love the community it creates. Coffee brings people together. My coworkers are great and so is my boss. Everyone’s friendly and outgoing and no one stresses out too much. For now I’m just kicking back and finally singing and dancing again. As long as I can do that I’ll be loving life. I plan on traveling anywhere and everywhere and in the meantime, making a gazillion coffees to help start your day. MTW

Vince Esquire & Chris Duarte Saturday, 7:30 p.m. at the McCoy Studio Theatre, MACC [MUSIC] I was sitting on my porch the other night having a beer with some friends when an acute feeling of boredom came over me. It seemed I’d reenacted this same night for months. My nightlife is leaving little to the imagination. But what’s a girl to do in Lahaina with a broken bike? I had to go big, brush off circumstance and go to a show on the other side. That’s right, folks—this weekend I’m going to hear some good old-fashioned blues at the Vince Esquire/Chris Duarte show. If you keep yourself apprised of up-and-coming blues legends, you probably already know who these guys are, but here’s the scoop for the rest of us. Maui-raised Esquire was on a yearlong sabbatical in Austin, Texas recently when he got to hear Duarte’s brand of gritty, intense Southern blues. “[Duarte] is somebody that’s inspired me throughout—beginning, middle and end,” Esquire told me. “He always has something new that captivates me.” So I called Duarte from my warm bed the other morning to see if I, too, might catch a little of that inspiration. His voice was fast and excited. It made it easy to imagine him on stage in cowboy boots playing the hell out of his guitar. He told me how he’d moved to Austin in 1979 with a simple dream of playing music. He bought his first 1963 Stratocaster at a pawn shop for $500 when he was 16 and worked his way up the ranks. “It all depends on how bad you want it,” he said. “When I started out, I played at restaurants and got paid in spaghetti.” Now he is quite renowned. A 1995 Guitar World’s readers’ poll voted him fourth best blues guitarist behind Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy and B.B. King. But when I mentioned it, he quickly brushed it off. “That was a long time ago,” he said. It seemed to me that it didn’t matter to Duarte if he got paid in meatballs or Grammies as long as he got to play. I saw right away why Esquire was so excited to play with him. It will be another great show for Esquire, too, who described his own music as “a unique blend of rock n’ roll and blues with some jazzy influences.” Inspired by John Coltrane, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Jimi Hendrix, Esquire formed his own four-man blues band, The Vince Esquire Band, about two years ago. He’s already made thousands of fans playing at some of Maui’s top venues, not to mention touring with Little Feat, opening at Willie Nelson’s annual Fourth of July party and playing with Eric Johnson, Derek Trucks and Coco Montoya. So come on guys, get off your porches and go. I’ll leave you with these words from a fan of the heartland. “I ain’t no critic but if you ever get a chance to hear this guy play and miss out, you can truly consider yourself a dumbass,” he said. “Nuthin‚ personal, just da facts, man.” [REESE QUICK] Tickets are $18 in advance, $23 day of the show.

ThIS WEEK’S PICKS by Samantha Campos
Uh Oh… It’s St. Patrick’s Day Thursday, 12 p.m. to who knows when at Mulligan’s on the Blue [FESTIVAL] There are bars and restaurants all over the island that’ll be celebrating this holiday with plenty of green cocktails and corned beef ‘n cabbage specials. But if you are one of those people who live for the chance to don leprechaun attire and go toe-for-toe with the glinteyed Irishmen downing Guinness and Car Bombs, then to Wailea you will go! Actually, Mulligan’s St. Paddy’s Day Festival also includes tons of live music all day long, as well as contests for Best Hat, Best Green Outfit and Best Irish Accent, among others. Tickets: $15 in advance, $20 at the door, and $10 for service industry workers and Lahaina folk (be prepared to prove it). Are your designated drivers worried about parking? There’s also a free shuttle from the Foodland and Hapa’s lots.
Art Maui 2005 Now at the Schaefer Int’l Gallery, MACC [ART] Since 1978, Art Maui has caused excited whispers throughout the state of Hawaii. It is known to be the place to be showcased for local artists. This year, over 427 artists applied, but only 144 artists got their coveted space (including MTW photographer Kirsten Guenther!) with 175 of their works in everything from sculpture, paintings, video, jewelry, photography, pottery, quilt making, woodworking and whatever else they could get their hands on. For more info, call 244-8272.
was a son, brother, husband, father, grandfather and friend to many. To those who knew him he was warm, funny and never complained. He was the most generous person you could have ever met. He always remembered people and the little things that they did. He was also the best fisherman and taught many his craft. He was a great provider for his friends and family and embodied the spirit of generosity to all he met. He has found his way home and will be greatly missed.

Saturday, 10:30 a.m. at Lihikai School in Kahului [CONVENTION] They don’t call the Republicans the Grand Old Party for nothing. And this Saturday morning at 10:30— the party time for all true Republicans—the Maui County GOP crew will be holding their annual convention. Not only are they going to nominate party officers, but they’re going to elect them and then, just for kicks, swear them in. With the emphasis on “swear,” if you get my drift. There will be nothing “conservative” about this blowout! This is the party of the year! Where else can you see Mayor Alan Arakawa dancing on a table with a lampshade on his head? Okay, perhaps that’s a bit exaggerated. Maybe he won’t be on a table… or dancing… or wearing anything on his head, but that doesn’t mean he won’t rock out. For more information, call 667-0836.

Cage Fights Saturday, 6 p.m. at Lahaina Civic Center [SPORTS] Yeah, ouch. Mixed martial arts cage fighters combine elements from boxing, wrestling, kickboxing, jiu-jitsu, karate and maybe some other stuff, not necessarily including eye-poking or ear-gnawing. Although 80 years ago in Brazil, the sport was known as “Vale Tudo” or “anything goes.” Scary. Mixed martial arts actually dates back to the ancient Olympic games in Athens, Greece, where it was called “Pankration,” which to me already sounds like the twisting muscles and snapping bones of yore. Go ahead, say it out loud. Slowly. On Maui, the featured fights will include Ronald Jhun vs. Jay Hieron and Fabiano Iha vs. John Cox. Also featuring: Tyson Nahooikaika vs. Jason Dacquel and Kendal Groves vs. Savant Young. Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at the door. For info, call 870-7104.

Naomi Watts Goes into the Well Ringu Director Hideo Nakata fumbles with American sequel The sequel to the American remake of the 1998 Japanese horror flick Ringu suffers from common horror genre pitfalls of creepy elements that fail in building authentic suspense or fear. Ringu director Hideo Nakata presides over an image system based on the element of water as newspaper reporter Rachel Keller (Naomi Watts) attempts to settle into a new life with her haunted son Aidan (David Dorfman) in the coastal town of Astoria, Oregon. The videotape that kills those who watch it plays a lesser role here than it did in The Ring with the primary tension focusing on the uneasy relationship between a confused mother and her semi-possessed child. Unexplained plot devices derail the Japanese inflected horror story that’s characteristically fueled by a mysterious longhaired ghoul girl character. The movie opens with a throwback scene to the first Ring movie with a teenage boy and girl sitting on a couch. The boy insists that the girl watch an underground videotape that he describes as the scariest film he’s ever seen. Although she’s more interested in making out, he insists that she watch it and exits for the kitchen where he fields a dreaded phone call as he stresses about the girl watching the tape before his oneweek deadline runs out. We don’t get to witness the cause of the sudden death that follows—only the result. When Rachel arrives at the crime scene in her newspaper reporter mode we see the twisted face of terror on the fresh corpse. But it arrives as a horror device without sufficient context. Rachel and her son Aidan have been trying to escape from the grimy clutches of Samara, a little ghost girl whose mother killed, or attempted to kill as a result of postpartum depression. Things get especially inconsistent in the plot because

Rachel and Aidan as they’re driving. It’s a virtuoso scene that really gets your heart racing for its sudden revelation that animals are reacting to the evil that rides in Rachel’s car. But the scene feels pasted on to the script because it never resonates anywhere else in the movie. Without Watts returning to make the sequel there would be no movie, and the actress does a bang up job with bringing a powerful sense of dread and desperation to her role. For the actress whose career was jumpstarted when she made David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive, audiences can only hope that she gets another golden opportunity to make such a riveting film as that one. Unfortunately, The Ring Two is not that movie. MTW

Al Pacino, Jeremy Irons, Joseph Fiennes and Lynn Collins chew up the screen in director Michael Radford's (Il Postino) exceptionally gripping and highly cinematic Shakespeare classic, rightfully called "the most furious courtroom drama ever written" by Slate Magazine. Set in the lavish era of 16th century Italy, the film follows the interlocking lives of a captivating assortment of Shakespearean characters in this story wrought with morality, revenge, redemption and love that "given the story's focus on religion and the intolerance that still rages in today's world remains deeply meaningful to this day" (USA Today). Rated R. 128 min.

New This Week ICE PRINCESS – (G) – Romantic Comedy - Don’t think this is another Ice Castles, people. It’s just another one of them formulaic, cute teen chick/underdog who battles against “the popular girls” to rise up the ranks and win... something. A trophy? The presidency? Oh yeah, self-esteem. Whoopee. We all know self-esteem gets you nowhere. Just look at Robert Blake! Stars Michelle Trachtenberg, Joan Cusack and Kim Cattrall. THE RING TWO – (PG13) – Horror – That same hot blonde from the first Ring flick (Naomi Watts) and her daughter are in this one, and they’re still being terrorized by a VHS tape that kills people, but this movie is actually totally new. First of all, it takes place six months after the original Ring, and it’s in a completely different town. Also stars David Dorfman and Sissy Spacek, who I guess is having hard times and is going back to her bread and butter horror work.
Now Showing ARE WE THERE YET? – (PG) – Romantic Comedy – Ice Cube stars in this light-hearted look at how a swinging bachelor takes his girlfriend’s kids on a road trip to impress her, but finds that they really only want to turn his life into a living hell. How do they come up with this stuff? BE COOL – (PG13) – Crime/Comedy – In this long-awaited sequel to Get Shorty, debt collectorturned movie producer Chili Palmer (John Travolta) turns into a music producer and decides to promote a struggling singer who’s also being chased by the Russian Mafya. Also stars Uma Thurman, Vince Vaughn, Danny DeVito and the rest. CONSTANTINE – (R) – Action-Adventure, Suspense, Horror and Thriller – As our astute intern put it, this film looks like a cross between The Matrix and Devil’s Advocate. We love that good vs. evil, Heaven and Hell stuff! Plus, it’s got beautiful Kauai-boy Keanu Reeves playing the tortured investigator of supernatural mysteries and hottie Rachel Weisz as... well, who cares. CURSED – (PG13) – Action-Adventure, Suspense, Horror – What’s up with this sudden rash of popular actors and actresses trying to get in on the latest horror flick? Aren’t they supposed to leave that to the B-Listers?! This one’s starring Christina Ricci, some werewolves and an ancient curse, of course. Man, this better be good. Also stars James Brolin and Portia De Rossi. DIARY OF A MAD BLACK WOMAN – (PG13) – Comedy/Drama – Long story short: Successful black couple lives in Atlanta for years, until husband kicks wife out of their beautiful house on their 18th wedding anniversary. Wife then learns to take control of her own life. This movie also features a “pot-smoking, gun-toting” grandmother figure, which practically guarantees that it’s good.

You’ll always be my, um... Ice Princess? el from outer space to the wild west--sure, why not. And there’s plenty of politically incorrect humor and cutting-edge computer animation. For ages 17 and up. HITCH – (PG13) – Romantic Comedy – Will Smith plays a matchmaker who uses less than honest methods in his work—whahhhhh???!?!—and then gets busted by a totally hot undercover reporter played by Eva Mendes. Oh, and there’s a chick in the movie named after a popular antihistamine. HOSTAGE – (R) – Thriller – Bruce Willis stars as a hostage negotiator who bungles a case and then swears off hostage negotiation but then has to return to work when his own family is suddenly captured as part of even more delicate negotiations following the kidnapping of a mob accountant. Hmm, sounds like a Bruce Willis film to me. THE JACKET -– (R) – Crime/Thriller, Drama, Romance – After a vet returns home to Vermont with amnesia, he ends up accused of murder. So they toss him into an asylum, pump him full of dope, wrap him in a straitjacket and then lock him in a morgue drawer. While inside, he then travels four days into the future and he sees himself get killed by an unknown assailant. Could happen. Really. Stars Adrien Brody, Keira Knightley, Kris Kristofferson and Jennifer Jason Leigh. MAN OF THE HOUSE – (PG) – Action-Adventure, Comedy – Tommy Lee Jones, an actor with supposedly the IQ of a genius, plays a Texas Ranger (?!) who is assigned to protect some witnesses to a high-profile murder. Uh huh. So he has to go undercover as an assistant cheerleading coach and move in with a group of University of Texas cheerleaders. All right! That IS genius!!
The Jacket - R - Th only (12:30), 5:10, 9:50
sounds like wussing out, considering that Mel didn’t want us to miss one precious moment of Christ’s agony during his last 12 hours, but hey—Mel works in mysterious ways. ROBOTS – (PG) – Animation, Sci-Fi, Comedy – This computer-generated cartoon details a world populated by robots. Yes, I know it sounds fantastic and even a bit childish, but really, this place actually exists! And I’ve been there! No, I swear—what? No, I haven’t taken my meds, yet. Anyway, it features the voices of Mel Brooks, Ewan McGregor, Halle Berry, Greg Kinnear and, of course, Robin Williams. SIDEWAYS – (R) – Comedy, Drama – This could be your typical road-tripping buddy flick, only the “buddies” in question are Miles (Paul Giamatti)—a downand-out failed novelist, middle school teacher and bitter divorcee but apt wine connoisseur—and his happygo-lucky friend Jack (Thomas Hayden Church), who has his own devious agenda for their big “wine tasting trip” before he gets married the following weekend. Also stars Virginia Madsen and Sandra Oh. SON OF THE MASK – (PG) – Action-Adventure, Comedy – I know it’s premature to say something like this, but I think this will be the best movie of 2005. Maybe of the whole decade. I mean, you had The Mask, and that was kind of funny, but this is about The Mask’s son! And it stars Jamie Kennedy! I didn’t think he could ever top Malibu’s Most Wanted, but this one sure looks like a winner.

Girl, Uninterrupted Ten things you may or may not know about comedian Margaret Cho She’s funny. Margaret Cho started doing stand-up comedy in San Francisco when she was 16. After winning a contest, which meant opening for Jerry Seinfeld, Cho quickly became a college circuit favorite. Defining her own brand of highly personal and hilarious inyour-face delivery, she went on to produce a critically acclaimed off-Broadway show in 1999 called I’m the One that I Want. She starred in All American Girl, the first TV sitcom featuring an AsianAmerican family. It was a show wrought with difficulties, including Cho’s well-publicized battles with the network’s idea of marketable ethnicity. Consequently, the show didn’t last long. “It’s hard to pin down what ‘ethnic’ is without appearing to be racist,” said Cho on her website. “And then, for fear of being too ‘ethnic,’ it got so watered down for television that by the end, it was completely lacking in the essence of what I am and what I do. I learned a lot, though. It was a good experience as far as finding myself, knowing who I was and what direction I wanted to take with my comedy.”
She’s a liberal. “The thing about conservative politics,” said Cho in an interview with In These Times’ Silja J.A. Talvi, “is that conservatives are so incredibly justified in their bigotry and ignorance. That sense of total justification is often something that people who are liberal and compassionate don’t really have.” But she’s not deterred by the results of the last election. “More people turned out to vote than in
three decades,” Cho told me recently, “which is impressive. And it’s also impressive that it was so close. There is really a lot of great stuff that we learned about ourselves, politically. The progressives, the Democrats, people who oppose Bush really did win a lot. We know more now than we ever have and I think we’ll really grow politically.”
She loves Maui. But she’s returning this time for business, not pleasure. “We’re just kind of coming in and then we have to go back to New York,” Cho told me, “to shoot a couple of exterior shots for my film, Bam Bam and Celeste. So we’re gonna kind of be in and out, which is unfortunate ‘cause I love to spend time there and hang out. It’s so beautiful and fun. I love Spam musubi.” She will not be running for any political office any time soon. “They don’t make very much money,” Cho said. “It’s kind of a hideous, thankless job. At least I kind of don’t have to work for votes. I can kind of just be silly and do whatever but I think it would just be so serious. And I don’t know if I would like it.”
She has a big mouth. “My favorite activist group was from the ’80s, ACT UP,” wrote Cho in “Presidential Cockfight,” an article published in the political magazine In These Times. “They had a great slogan, ‘Silence Equals Death,’ which meant that if we don’t talk about AIDS we will die of AIDS. I’ve got a similar slogan for me: ‘Silence equals nonexistence.’ That makes me a problem dinner guest. At some point during the evening someone will say, ‘Don’t go there.’ Well, I live there. I bought a house there. I’m going to take you there.”
Sunday, 7:30 p.m., Castle Theater, MACC. Tickets: $25, $35, $45. Call 242-7469.
She is pro-gay marriage. Just check out her web site: www.loveisloveislove.com. “If the amendment banning gay marriage is actually passed,” wrote Cho in an essay on the web site, “then it would be the first time that the constitution would be amended specifically to deny the rights of a specific minority, which frankly is downright unconstitutional. The argument is ludicrous. Same sex couples should have the ability to get married by Elvis, just like everyone else.”
She’s a feminist and an activist. In 2003, the National Organization for Women (NOW) awarded Cho for having “pushed the boundaries of comedy for women performers and earned herself a dedicated following of fans across the country.” She’s also been honored by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, American Women in Radio and Television, the Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund and Parents Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays for making a significant difference in promoting equal rights.
She’s an over-achiever. “I have a book coming out later this year,” she said. “It’s sort of a book about politics. Then I have this movie [Bam Bam and Celeste] and the tour, which will go out for the rest of the year. And I’m writing another film.”

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Prepare for a metaphysical avalanche around the 20th. It’ll mostly bury your (mental) house. These massive shifts of bedrock and rubble could be dangerous, but also lucrative. It depends on how prepared you are to dodge disasters and take advantage of opportunities. Yeah, some of your most familiar rooms and hallways will be completely covered by the wreckage; you won’t be able to use them for some time. But new or neglected sections of your home are likely to be exposed by the shifting debris. Spend some time exploring these, and discovering what you’ve gained, instead of lamenting what you’ve lost.

Eat right. Get your sleep. Some signs, like those oft-radiant Leos, can swing wildly between hot and dumpy depending on self-perception; for them, pure confidence can equal beauty. For Taureans, however: not so much. Sure, your attitude can affect how people perceive you, but chiefly, variance in your appearance comes from purely concrete matters; basically, how you’ve been taking care of yourself. Lately you haven’t been doing as good a job in this department as you could, and, unfortunately, it shows. Reverse the trend. Get on that treadmill, eat some salad, and give yourself a full eight hours a night. Who says you can’t go from homely to handsome overnight? You can.
GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Save your work. Every five minutes. This pertains not just to whatever’s on your computer, but in any situation where you could lose advances you’ve made—the universe is feeling mighty greedy lately, and apt to suck all your efforts towards entropy. Don’t give it a chance. Be vigilant. Be redundant. Make two copies of everything important. Do it now, because you won’t get any advance warning (other than this one). You’ll tap a key and it’ll just be gone, and nothing you can do will bring it back. Unless of course you’ve got a backup on hand; now, how good would that feel? Make it so.
TO ADVERTISE Call 661-3786
CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Bide your time. Life’s way more complex than a chess game, but bear with my analogy: Sometimes you just have to wait until all the pieces are in place before you make your move. If you “attack” early, you lose. Next week’s Full Moon in Libra is your cue; at that point you’ll have a better than even chance to accomplish whatever agenda you currently have in mind, be it seduction, career advancement, or revenge. What to do this week, then? Make sure everything’s as ready as it can be for when you launch your plan, and chill.
LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) Keep things well-ventilated and cool this week. Your normally long fuse has just been clipped to a fraction of its usual length, and it’d be a shame if you blew your top over something little and stupid, just because you weren’t paying attention. Act as if you’re actually holding a delicate, vibration-triggered bomb under one arm: move slowly, talk softly, and when conflict rears its ugly head, quietly slip away before it can set the explosives off. You won’t have to tiptoe around your life for long; by this time next week, you should be able to put the thing down, make lots of noise, and fiercely engage in arguments, all without exploding.

This week you give sensitive a new meaning. Please be careful: you won’t always be able to correctly anticipate your own reactions to familiar influences. A single cup of coffee could affect you like three (same goes for alcohol, by the way). A horror movie that you’d normally laugh at might have you on edge and jumping at shadows for days. A great fuck could make you decide you’re in love. You’re unusually vulnerable to the things around you; it’s like the volume of the world is turned way up. Don’t don blinders and earplugs, though—it’s hot shit when things are this vivid and intense—and can be intensely enjoyable, when you know what you’re doing. Prove you do.

The other day I imagined what it’d be like if all the seasons shifted two months forward. The school year would begin in mid-summer, for example, and the leaves would change around Christmas-time, and we’d all be slightly psychologically screwed up by it. Nothing serious, I guess, but I mention it because of your recent timing issues. The universe hasn’t been providing you with clues you can understand. You’re not only having trouble with the big stuff, like when to propose marriage or buy a house, but the little mundane crap, like when to eat or sleep. Unfortunately, this strange signal-less limbo will continue for another few weeks, despite your best efforts. Until then, all you can do is try to get your eight hours and three squares, whatever random time you can, and hope for the best.

What would you do if you learned, early on in a pregnancy, that your new baby would be born deformed? The doctor might present abortion as a possibility. Would you consider it? Or would you gladly sign on to the kind of devotion required by your new “special needs” child? Luckily, the stakes this week aren’t nearly so high, even if they occupy the same genre: something you’ve created (and which is about to be born) has been revealed to be very different—even quite compromised—compared to your original vision. Will you kill it now, so it’ll never be, or will you help it achieve its full potential nevertheless? It’s a rough decision, sweetheart. Good luck.
SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) My boyfriend has a morbid theory about the correlation between how we react to death in our dreams, and how we’ll react to the real thing when it eventually comes. He thinks it’s probably quite similar. Who knows? But I do think that dreams can be good practice for other events in your life; how you handle things that scare you, anger, conflicts, and love affairs while asleep can have relevance to what happens when you wake up. You need this kind of practice. Anticipate future events (not necessarily anything so heavy as your own death), and daydream (or really dream, if you’re lucky) about them, so that when they come around for real, you’ll be prepared, not clueless.
SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21)
658 Front Street
Less is more this week, baby. You probably wouldn’t approach a stranger and hand him an x-rated picture of yourself in a misbegotten attempt at flirtation. It might get you the desired results (though that’s unlikely), and it’s certainly not that classy, or even remotely in line with what you’re about right now. Sometimes the crudest, most direct path is best, but not at the moment. There are better ways, more subtle routes. Even if they take 10 times longer than the shortcut straight ahead, they’re still far superior. Please find and choose one of them this week.
CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19)
Lahaina, HI 96761
You’ve probably heard that crappy joke about the guy stuck on his roof in a massive flood. A few rescue teams in boats and a helicopter arrive in succession to save him but he says, “Nah, God’ll save me,” and ultimately drowns. In heaven he’s like, “What the hell, God?” and God says: “Hey, I sent two boats and a chopper, and you wouldn’t budge.” This week, please reverse your expectations about what salvation—of your career, your relationship, or simply your day—will look like, because they’re worse than useless. They’ll only keep you from recognizing the real thing when it comes along.
AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) Stop pissing into the flames, Aquarius. You can’t put out this blaze by yourself. It’s valiant of you to try, but also foolhardy. Once things have gotten this extreme, they’re bigger than what any one person can stop or control on his own. You need help, lots of it, and fast. Shove aside any guilt or remorse about this crisis. Whether or not you set these disastrous events into motion isn’t the point. Get the aid you require to quell or at least direct the mighty forces you may have helped unleash, now, before someone gets hurt.

MARCH 17, 2005
BY SAMANTHA CAMPOS
Pisces drink like fish We are all born naked and screaming and if you’re lucky that sort of thing won’t stop there. - Unknown My birthday week was exhausting. I’m never going to drink again. “Yeah,” said my friend Dave, snickering. “Good luck with that.” But I knew it was going to be trouble. The actual date of my birth was mid-week but we started on Monday, as Mr. X and I joined forces to celebrate his birthday and last night on the island. We went to the Tiki Lounge in Kihei and almost immediately became inundated with boobs, b-day cocktails and mysterious shots from friends and strangers. We made nice with these two ladies who looked like Hustler centerfolds. Upon my suggestion, the one wearing a birthday banner sidled her sizable accoutrements up to Mr. X, who then squeezed my knee in fear. Men! They want it until it’s in their face and then they do lots of Jager shots and run away screaming... Wait, did I say men?! Yeah, read on. The next night at midnight, I celebrated my birthday starting at Hecocks with Circle, Rainbow, Cooper and Mr. Charming himself, Jerry. I made Kevin do a Mind Eraser with me. Then I went to the SandBar. Northern Calif. reggae band Groundation was on, while Dave and fellow-Piscean Reeny gathered libations in my honor. On my birthday, people were really nice and gave me presents. I even got some lovely and creative, called-in birthday songs. Ah, having musician friends finally pays off! Later in the afternoon, I went to my tattoo consultation with Circle at Evolved Art. Afterwards, high on adrenaline, I met Sasha for dinner at Sam Sushi. Then we went to see The Sea Inside at the MACC. And it was off to the Sly Mongoose, where Jen was bartending. Thursday night was the big Me First and the Gimme Gimmes show at the Hard Rock Café in Lahaina. And on Saturday, I went on a private whale watch excursion at sunset. The Blue Family was there, as well as a small gang of us looking for a little breach action before we got hammered on champagne and beer. FYI: we did get much action, on both counts. We also passed an imaginatively colored barge called the Red Rhino. “Isn’t that the name of a vibrator?” someone asked. Did I mention Sonja was on board? Yeah, we determined she’s not so much Scandinavian as she is Scandal-labian. So after the cruise, BJ, Kim and I went to Charley’s in Paia. Unfortunately, we missed the John Moore Project but Kim got to see her favorite Maui band The Easy. And then Marty Dread performed and made me crush on him all over again as he dedicated a birthday song to me. Hey, don’t hate me ‘cause I give shout outs. I might have missed some details here and there but basically, birthday week was good times… And I’ve noticed—especially during this past week—that it’s hard to achieve the balance of actually having fun and doing this column stuff. What does my editor call it? Oh yeah, reporting. It says so right here in Linda Goodman’s Sun Signs: “The Pisces writer may be tempted to lounge for years in bars, telling himself he’s gathering material, when he’s really just gathering moss and unpaid bills.” Ouch. Needless to say, I took the next week off to recover. But by Friday, I had decided to hang out on the Westside to see Go Jimmy Go at Paradice Bluz. Before that, I had to give Kim a ride to the Mango Café in Ka’anapali. She’s been co-hosting a new nightclub-y thing there and had been trying to get me to check it out. Of course, now that I’ve become a Central Maui girl, I’ve previously declined with a great deal of smirkitude. Alas, paybacks are a bitch. I must say the place really does have potential. It’s open-air, looks over the Ka’anapali golf course and has a decent dance floor. And there were some surprisingly attractive people collected around the easy-to-flirt-across rectangular bar. And I met a bee-yoo-tiful Southern boy who my friends call—maybe for some reason I don’t want to know—Gutter Rat. You can tell I thought he was cute ‘cause the next day I was really hung-over (read: we did many Jager shots. Thanks a lot, DJ Half-Pint). And then I ran away. Um, how about I’m never going to drink Jagermeister again? Damn devil’s drink. MTW
