Chatting with the Editor As the editor of Maui Time Weekly, people come up to me all the time and ask all sorts of questions about the paper. So each week, I’ll sit down and chat with a different member of the Maui Time ‘ohana. This week, I spoke with contributing writer George Thrustgood. Editor: Hey George. Thanks a lot for talking with me.

[…] Editor: What did you say? Thrustgood: You mean, all this time—you didn’t know? Oh wow, this is awkward. Editor: I’ll say. How do you think Payroll feels? [Both laugh uproariously]

Thrustgood: No problem, boss. It’s my pleasure. Editor: Now I forget—how long have you been writing for the paper? Thrustgood: About 20 months, not that I’m keeping count. Editor: That long, huh? You know, I’ve been at the paper about that long myself. Time certainly flies when you’re having fun. Thrustgood: And how. But working for an editor like you really makes it go easier.

‘Seek an Alternative Location’

Noise Matters

County planning chief contests car-crusher at Kanaha Citing considerable opposition from a variety of county, state and federal agencies, the Maui County Planning Department has told local tow truck operator Mike Kitagawa that it opposes his building a car-crushing facility on Hobron Ave. next to the Kanaha Pond State Wildlife Sanctuary in Kahului. “In light of the concerns raised by these agencies, we find it difficult to support your proposed facility at its current location,” Maui County Planning Director Michael Foley wrote to Kitagawa on Apr. 7, 2005. “You are again advised to follow the recommendations of these agencies and seek an alternative location such as your Alamaha Street location.” Kitagawa refused to comment on Foley’s letter. But other county officials are vocalizing their opposition. “I believe there are serious and obvious concerns associated with the proposal to site a heavy industrial activity of this sort next to a protected wildlife sanctuary, home to three species of native endangered birds,” said Rob Parsons, the Maui

County Environmental Coordinator. “I applaud Director Foley for his comments to the applicant, encouraging him to choose another location.” While Maui County clearly has to do something about the ballooning number of abandoned cars, crushing them next to an endangered species habitat isn’t the answer. As Maui Time has previously reported (see “The Big Squeeze,” Apr. 7 and “Explosive,” Apr. 14), the county Department of Fire and Public Safety, the U.S. Department of Interior’s Fish and Wildlife Service and the state Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) have all put into writing their opposition to Kitagawa’s proposal. DLNR is concerned that loud noise from the facility will harm the endangered Hawaiian stilts, coots and ducks that make their home at Kanaha. Federal Fish and Wildlife officials told the county it was likely that cars reaching the crushing lot would still contain many toxic fluids that would inevitably leak into the Kanaha Pond. But it was the county Fire Department’s comments that were the most explosive. “A fire is a very real possibility at this location, even with most/all vehicle fluids removed,” Fire Captain Val Martin wrote to the county. Martin added that should his department have to battle a blaze at the crushing yard, water contaminated with oils and fluids could run off into the Kanaha Pond. In his Apr. 7 letter, Foley also wrote that the Planning Department has received at least one complaint against Kitagawa for already stacking abandoned cars on his lot. “[T]here are current problems of possible oil contaminants on the ground,” Foley told

Score: 97 out of 100 Read through enough CDC Vessel Sanitation inspection reports, and you see that sometimes cruise ships get written up for some rather petty stuff. “The plastic tasting spoons [in the Deck 3 Galley] were not dispensed with the handles all facing the same way,” read one violation in the Feb. 26 report on the 41,000-ton Norwegian Wind. But more often than not, the CDC inspectors find scarier problems. Like possible poisoned food and toys scary. In the same report cited above, inspectors also wrote that, “mold was noted inside a sealed package of mozzarella cheese.” And over in the Kid’s Corner, “the Lego toys were found still wet with disinfectant in a large plastic bin.” -Anthony Pignataro

Kitagawa didn’t waste any time Kitagawa. “Please be advised that this complaint has been forwarded to our Zoning and Enforcement Division for proper action.” County Planning Department’s Staff Planner Colleen Suyama said Kitagawa also hasn’t responded to Foley’s letter. But she added that all hope isn’t lost for him. He can still try to fix the problems outlined by the various agencies above. But if he can’t, he’s going to have to forget about crushing cars next to the Kanaha Pond. MTW

It requires no pesticides or herbicides (Cleaner water for all of us)

Recently a Liquor Control inspector showed up at Jacque’s in Paia during one of their DJ sessions. Not to soak up some world music or do a little dancing, but to wave his noise meter around and check the decibel readings. I mean, sure—liquor, noise—it’s all the same, right? Of course a liquor license would be tied to sound levels. The LC scrutinizes a club’s dance floor dimensions and location, and that’s a fire issue. So why not noise, too? Noise comes up in the LC hearings more often than you’d think. It’ll be coming up again as the Liquor Commission begins holding hearings on removing the noise restrictions from Hana Hou Café in Haiku. The cafe has been open four years and has apparently caused no complaints. Of course, it can’t have live music or stay open late either. It’s located in the Haiku Cannery where the old Lounge used to play rock music in the days before the LC packed decibel meters. When the Lounge closed, the LC moved in and turned the volume way down. “I want the opportunity to expand my business,” owner Leslie Lai told the Commission during its April 13, 2005 hearing. “[But] I want to prove to the community that I would still be very considerate of the neighborhood.” Though Commissioner Manuel Moniz, Jr. pointed out that he thought it was odd to perpetuate restrictions on one place when other nearby establishments could operate freely, the future of Hana Hou could go either way. In early September, 2004, the Liquor Commission put the screws to Yorman’s by the Sea in Kihei after cranky Menehune Shores residents who live above the restaurant swarmed into the hearing chamber to denounce “the Count Basie rendition of ‘One More Time.’” But earlier this year, at the Feb. 9 Commission hearing, the panel was far more gracious to Bamboo Chi in Wailea. Though a bunch of Wailea Community Association residents showed up to complain against allowing Bamboo Chi to hold live music past midnight, the Commission opted to stay out of the fight, saying nearby residents needed to work out their differences with the restaurant.

MAUICOUNTY

BY ANTHONY PIGNATARO

WEDNESDAY, APR. 20 Went to work this morning listening to a nonsensical David Marcus essay on National Public Radio denouncing teenage drug abuse in all its forms. He got all huffy because today is 4/20, Stoner Day or whatever the kids are calling it these days. Yes, yes, it’s all very bad. But Marcus completely missed the real significance of today—it’s Adolf Hitler’s birthday! On this day in Braunau, Austria back in 1889, little Adolf was born. To celebrate, our fearless leader George W. Bush today paid homage to the giant banks and credit card companies who’ve so loyally funded his presidential campaigns by signing a 500-page bill making it nearly impossible for not-sowealthy citizens to declare bankruptcy. Never mind that the big credit card companies can slap down all sorts of unexpected penalties and rate hikes on people who miss a payment by a mere hour. Or that the companies are increasingly scheduling due dates on Sundays or holidays, which increase the odds of racking in late payments. Or that many of these fees and rate increases are buried in legalistic fine print that few attorneys even understand. And guys like Marcus wonder why 4/20 is all the rage.

THURSDAY, APR. 21 Everything’s going up, at least according to today’s Maui News. I’m talking about fees. Wanna play nine holes at the Waiehu Municipal Golf Course? It’s

gonna cost you more now. Wanna get your stray dog out of stir? It’s gonna cost more. Wanna gas up your new Mustang GT? Gonna cost more. And oh, look at this: the core inflation rate is rising. I’m shocked! Well, let’s take stock of our nation as a whole: we’re fighting two wars half a world away; the Bush Administration has, far from raising taxes to pay for those wars, actually cut them; and as a result our budget—which was running surpluses just five short years ago—is exploding in deficit. But look on the bright side—Dubya has just three and three-quarter years to go in his second term.

FRIDAY, APR. 22 The Sierra Club Hawai’i Chapter hates him. So does Hawai’i’s Thousand Friends. Ditto the Native Hawaiian Legal Corporation. The state legislature is auditing his office. Of course I’m speaking of Peter Young, the embattled boss of the state Department of Land and Natural Resources. He’s under fire for not filling important vacancies in the office and just generally giving more attention to corporate uses of state natural resources than you’d expect from a guy tasked with protecting them. Anyway, Young is firing back. And by “firing back,” I naturally mean “diverting the issue.” First there was that Maui News editorial last week pleading that we all have responsibility for the land. Now he’s sending out a press release denouncing—better sit down for this one—people who drive on the beach and/or set

In March, a Princeton University graduate student in applied mathematics, Michael Lohman, was arrested, suspected by police of being the guy who has been assaulting Asian women on campus for weeks by snipping locks of their hair or by furtively doctoring their drinks with unspecified “bodily fluids” in the dining hall. And a week after that, in Rockport, Mass., a chaired professor of economics at Harvard named Martin Weitzman was charged with larceny. A farmer said Weitzman has long been trespassing and hauling away manure for his own nearby farm, thus denying the farmer his market price of $35 per truckload.

According to a February report in the Israeli daily Ma’ariv, Itzik Simkowitz is suing a pet shop owner in Beersheeba for selling him a sickly Galerita-type cockatoo (price: the equivalent of about US$2,000) that died shortly after Simkowitz got him home. As in a classic Monty Python sketch, the shop owner initially insisted that the parrot was merely lethargic and needed time to adjust to his new surroundings, but when the parrot (to use the Python dialogue) was shown to be “a late parrot,” “an ex-parrot,” “a stiff,” and to have “joined the choir invisible,” the shop owner still refused to return the money.

INVISIBILITY Mr. Mamadou Obotimbe Diabikile was shot by police and arrested after his unsuccessful attempt to rob the Mali Development Bank in Bamako, Mali, in March, in part hindered by the nearly seven pounds of magic charms he was wearing to make himself invisible. And musician Edna Chizema went on trial in March in Harare, Zimbabwe, for allegedly defrauding Ms. Magrate Mapfumo by convincing her to pay the equivalent of US$5,000 for Chizema to fly in four invisible mermaids from London to help recover Mapfumo’s stolen car.

HOLY COW! Kim Chan, 40, of a village in the Cambodian province of Kampot, announced in March that he had a cow that was heavenly possessed and could cure illnesses by exposure to its bodily fluids, but local official Khun Somnang immediately discounted the claim, saying, “We had a holy cow here a year and a half ago [and you] don’t get two that close together.”

In the course of the arrest, a highly nervous Woodard failed to control his bowels, and police have submitted samples for DNA testing.

Young still managed to call 911 on his cell phone and describe his route until police could join the chase, which ended when the driver fled on foot and was captured. Two weeks later, “Young” was arrested and charged with breaking into a home, and police discovered that his real name is Anthony Barry and that he has served two stretches in prison. MTW

CHOCK FULL OF HEADY GOODNESS

Bessie and her precious Spam Bessie Ku’uipo King loves Spam. She loves it so much that on Apr. 1 she started sending emails announcing her plans to enter the Mr./Ms. Spam Hawaii 2005 competition as part of the 3rd Annual Waikiki Spam Jam Festival. Naturally, everyone thought she was joking. “Everyone keeps asking ‘why are you doing this?’” says King. “Ultimately though, my mom dared me.” King is one of five finalists in the Mr./Ms. Spam Hawaii contest and the only contender from Maui. A bonafide “island girl,” King’s worked with the National Park Service, at the Hard Rock Café, a helicopter company, in various bars, in an automobile factory and currently as a family’s personal assistant—a sort of “Girl Friday for the domestically disabled.” Considering Hawai’i her home “forever,” she’s left Maui only once, to attend Purdue University in Indiana. “They made fun of me,” she says. “The way I talked, my slippahs, the Spam eating. They were really conservative.” Eating Spam is not a notion mainlanders seem to grasp with as much gusto as Pacific Islanders. Since becoming an integral staple food during World War II, Spam consumption in Hawai’i far exceeds that of the rest of the nation—nearly seven million cans are sold here each year. It has

become so ingrained in island culture that every convenience store includes Spam products in their deli cases. Even McDonald’s features Spam McGriddles for breakfast. “Growing up in Hawai’i,” King says, “I would be proud to represent Spam. Provided they don’t look into my past!” She’s kidding, of course. But she might be talking about a brief stint she had as a vegetarian. Anyhow, it wasn’t long before she returned to her childhood love of Spam. She remembers selling Spam musubi for school fundraisers. And Spam was King’s saving grace when her family went camping. “I was a picky eater,” she says. “My family would be diving for lobster, preparing fresh fish for dinner. Not me. I was eating Spam right out of the can, not cooked, with tomato syrup.” When King worked in Haleakala National Park, weeding invasive species and replanting natives for days at a time, she and the biologists relied on Spam. They would use it in their stirfry or for breakfast. She says the best Spam meal she ever had was when they were down to “an onion, a can of corn, canned pineapple, a carrot, a can of Spam and plenty of rice. It’s just the right combo of sweet and salty.” These days, King is studying to get a bachelor’s degree in Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences. Her family has two acres in Kanaio on Maui, which she is hoping to use for outplanting and keiki education. She is also an avid paddler with outrigger canoe club Lae Ula O Kai and says she’s powered by Spam during regatta season. “I eat a lot of Spam musubi,” she says. “[It’s] my favorite and most convenient way to eat Spam.” To be a Mr. or Ms. Spam Hawaii 2005 contender, you have to be a Hawai’i resident, write an essay on Spam, present an idea for a possible commercial, as well as submit a “Spamtastic” photo. King began campaigning immediately. Family members posted fliers. Friends helped video her commercial. Another friend—a National Geographic photographer—offered assistance. “He said I’d be easier to photograph than wild animals,” she says, giggling. The winner of Spam Hawaii gets $1000 cash, 365 12-ounce cans of Spam and the coveted title. Plus she would have to be available for the occasional interview. Since entering the contest, King said she’s learned a lot in the process. ‘You can do anything you want if you believe in it,” she says. “Even if it’s a lonely trail of Spam!” MTW

‘Prevalent Everywhere’ How Women Helping Women is coping with DV My friend Rosa was a battered woman. She came from an affluent two-parent family where her parents never even raised their voices. But then she met Jack. They started out as friends, then decided to get closer. He was handsome and persuasive and she fell in love with him quickly. At first their love was like any other young couple. It was strong and almost consuming. They were sweet to each other and loved spending time together. Months passed, and they found themselves having little disagreements that sometimes would become heated. She just thought he was passionate and he always made it up to her. He began telling her not to spend time with her friends, getting jealous easily and yelling at her. He slammed doors and punched walls. Then she got pregnant. He wanted to start a family with her so they moved in together. Then one night after he had been out with his friends he came home, started another argument, then punched her in the face. Falling to the floor with her he began to cry, begging her to forgive him, and saying that he was sorry. She fell asleep that night with him holding her tightly. He would wake every so often to whisper how much he loved her. But the next morning, after he left for work, she packed her things and took off. Ninety eight percent of all domestic violence victims are women. Here on Maui, the police received nearly 5,000 reports of DV last year. The Women Helping Women violence hotline rang more than 11,000 times. Of those calls, 8,766 women and children sought some kind of refuge at the shelter. “It is easy to romanticize that these relationships are happening because both parties enjoy it,” said Dan Judson, president of Women Helping Women. “After the honeymoon stage is the tension building stage and how you handle the tension building stage is what separates abusive and non-abusive relationships.” Women Helping Women runs the only domestic violence shelter on Maui. This week they’re hosting their eighth annual “Elegant Afternoon Tea” fundraiser at Bev Gannon’s Sugar House in Hali’imaile. To get an idea of what the shelter is up against, I visited their facility. The shelter itself is a well-maintained house surrounded by beautiful grounds. Valerie, one of the staff members who would only give her first name, led me through the grounds. She also had me sign a waiver of confidentiality, promising that I wouldn’t reveal the identities of the women there or the shelter’s location. With a ‘no turn away’ policy, I could only imagine that communal living with

A woman sat in the living room watching television, a child playing a video game at her feet. I asked Stacy Moniz, the shelter’s executive director, why domestic violence was such a problem here in Hawai’i. “It is a problem all over the world,” she said. She said the reason it appears to be so bad here is that we are a “talk story,” close-knit community. A lot of times, she said, we know what is happening in our neighbor’s house before their own family does. “It is not more prevalent here,” she said. “It is prevalent everywhere and I think this is a myth that people need to be educated on.” Instead, Moniz said we should look for DV roots in American culture, which she said was rooted in violence and aggression. She also said the shelter’s temporary restraining order office counsels women who “are lawyers, doctors, rich, educated and even famous.” Finishing my walk through the grounds, I stopped in the spacious kitchen. There, someone had stuck a quote from former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill on the refrigerator door: “A pessimist sees the difference in every opportunity and an optimist sees opportunity in every difference.” MTW

LEFT: DON SWANSON; RIGHT: ROGER SWANSON

From Homeowner to Homeless The puzzling case of Roger Swanson

Right now nobody knows where Roger Swanson is. He’s been missing for the last month. Recent attempts by his family to find him proved fruitless. There are stories of him riding his bike up and down South Kihei Road but no one’s quite sure where he lives now. Some say he’s living on one of the Kam beaches or even in a storage unit. Like many homeless people, Roger suffers from mental disorders. In his case, it’s Obsessive/Compulsive Disorder and clinical depression. It’s possible he doesn’t know why he’s homeless. It’s also possible he doesn’t know that he’s got more than $200,000 in the bank. Roger is totally alone now. His family, what’s left of it, lives on the mainland. His brother, who’s long been his guardian, is terminally ill. He’s been homeless since Mar. 16, the day the State of Hawaii ordered him evicted from the one bedroom Kihei condo he’d owned free and clear since 1999. His crime? Refusing to pay $3,500 in Kihei Kai Nani Homeowners

COVER STORY

Association fines. The fines were for Swanson’s habit of collecting junk. He might have intimidated and harassed some of the people where he lived, but really, he got kicked out because of all the junk he piled on his lanai. Because Swanson ignored the fines, the Kihei Kai Nani (KKN) Homeowners Association sued him, got the court to seize the home he owned and then auction it off. The legal matters took about five months. “It’s a sad story,” said Matthew S. Kohm, a Wailuku attorney appointed by the court to act as commissioner over the auction. “I have a lot of compassion for Roger. But his own worst enemy is himself. Roger is difficult to help because he won’t let anybody help him. He’s extremely smart and manipulative. If he doesn’t get his way, he starts acting like a young child.” At the same time, Roger’s story also shows the extent to which one homeowners association went to enforce their covenants and restric-

tions—even if it meant throwing a mentally disturbed man onto the street. Roger’s apartment at Kihei Kai Nani isn’t exactly oceanfront, but it is just a couple minutes walk to Kamaole Beach II, one of the best swimming beaches on Maui. It’s also in the heart of Kihei, between Denny’s and KKO. The apartment, built in 1970, is typical condo living. It’s 621 square feet, with one bedroom and one bathroom. It comes equipped with a full sized washer/dryer. According to people who know him, Roger was completely normal and healthy until about 20 years ago, when got into his 40s. Roger first came to Hawaii in the early 1960s, when he volunteered for the U.S. Army. For much of his three-year enlistment, Roger served in the 25th Infantry Division, based on Oahu. His job was to guard the secret Red Hill Underground Fuel Storage Facility just north of Honolulu. “It’s a volcano filled with caves,” said his

By Anthony Pignataro brother Donald, who also served in the army. “There are stories that there they stored nerve gas, atomic stuff, but I don’t know. It was a very secret thing. Roger was in those caves on a daily basis. I always wondered if there was any possible connection [to his later mental problems]. I have no basis to suspect one, but I just wonder.” After the army, Roger got a college degree and went into banking, eventually working his way up to a vice president’s post at a Seattle savings and loan. But then his mother died, and Roger’s personality seemed to change. He became brusque and depressed. Things got so bad he entered the Seattle VA hospital. But his brother Donald lived on Maui at the time and owned a couple units at the Kihei Kai Nani. So Roger bought a place there. On April 12, 1999, escrow closed on Kihei Kai Nani’s Unit #151. County property records show the unit had sold for as much as $139,000 back in 1990, but a depressed real estate market had brought the price down to $86,000, which Roger


paid off entirely. The day after escrow closed, Roger left the VA hospital in Seattle and got on a plane for Maui. Problems began almost immediately after he arrived. That summer, residents and visitors at the Kai Nani began complaining to the Association of Roger’s “violent outbursts.” It got so bad that his brother Donald had to write to then-KKN board President Sandy McGowan. “Both Roger and I are aware that his conduct in several cases is not acceptable in a condo environment and that he must work hard to control his outbursts,” Donald wrote on July 19, 1999. A week later, McGowan wrote back. “Yes, I have had some very serious complaints about Roger’s incorrect and intolerable behavior,” she wrote. “Hopefully there will be no further violent outbursts and our guests, owners and staff will not feel threatened.” The thing was, Roger’s situation—then and now—was apparently completely treatable. And everyone involved, including the homeowners association, knew it. “If he takes anti-depressants and gets regular sessions with a psychologist, he’s okay,” Donald told me in a phone interview from his Northern California home. “The best treatment is a combination of both. One without the other doesn’t work—I know, because I’ve researched this extensively.” But Roger wasn’t doing both. In fact, he didn’t seem to be doing either. As the value of Roger’s condo rose, so did the list of his KKN Association violations. Current Kihei Kai Nani manager Victoria Bournkamp refused to comment for this story. Her boss, Nancy Price of Destination Maui, did not return repeated phone calls for comment.

“A PERSON LIKE ROGER SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN LIVING IN A PLACE LIKE THAT,” KOHM TOLD ME. “IT DOESN’T LOOK GOOD FOR THE ASSOCIATION THAT THIS GUY GOT EVICTED. BUT LIVING IN A CONDO, YOU HAVE TO HAVE AGREEMENTS AND HARMONY.” Nonetheless, court records outline Roger Swanson’s “violations.” He fed birds on the property. He went dumpster diving, then began storing the trash and junk on his lanai and on the lawn in front of his apartment. He harassed Association staff—especially when they tried to make him stop dumpster diving. The Association fined Roger, who ignored the fines. This went on for months, then years. Roger also piled trash into his apartment. As court-appointed commissioner, Matthew Kohm was able to arrange a visit to Roger’s apartment. He took photographs. “The judge ordered me to go in,” he told me. “It was disgusting. It was worse than disgust-

ing. There was serious health risk. He turned the electricity off when he’d leave, so there were maggots in the refrigerator. Roger would cook things. He’d smelt metal in his apartment. He would draw these blueprints, like in A Beautiful Mind. Some of [what he had] was pretty good junk.” For those living next to Roger, the problem was magnified. Forget trying to rent units to tourists—the smell alone from Roger’s garbage heap probably ruled that out. By the summer of 2003, the KKN Association had had enough. Citing rarely used though perfectly legal provisions in their voluminous Association Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CCRs), the Association went to court to force Roger into a judicial foreclosure. It didn’t matter that Roger held the deed to his condo—he wasn’t playing by the Kihei Kai Nani rules, so they would kick him out. First they got a lien placed on his property in August, 2003. When Roger did nothing, they sued him. “Defendant has failed and neglected to pay $3,925.93, said sum representing the share of common expenses and other charges assessed to said Property as of October 6, 2003,” wrote Association attorney Ray Wimberly in a court filing dated Nov. 6, 2003. Let’s pause here a moment. Roger owed the Association $3,925.93. That’s all. Had he paid those fines, it’s almost certain he’d still be living in his apartment 151. But Roger didn’t pay the fines. He ignored them. He also ignored the court summons delivered to him the same day his homeowners association sued him. Those were bad decisions, sure, but they were nothing compared to his choice to act as his own legal counsel.

“A person like Roger should never have been living in a place like that,” Kohm told me. “It doesn’t look good for the association that this guy got evicted. But living in a condo, you have to have agreements and harmony.” Roger’s trial began before Judge Joel August on May 14, 2004. It continued on and off all summer. It didn’t go well for Roger. On Sept. 1, 2004, Judge August appointed Kohm as commissioner. His job would be to oversee the eventual auction. “I suggested he declare bankruptcy,” said Kohm, who probably talked with Roger eight to 10 times during the case. “I suggested he get a reverse mortgage. But he said, ‘I’m so poor. All I have is this place. What can I do?’ He said he could make it go away.” By this point, there was only one way to make it go away—have a psychologist declare Roger Swanson to be mentally incompetent. Had that happened, the court would have appointed a guardian over Roger, sold his condo and then placed all the proceeds into an annuity that would have provided Roger with a steady income and protection from any creditors. But despite the fact that Roger’s brother Donald repeatedly spoke with psychologists and social workers at the Maui Veterans’ Clinic, it never happened. “I kept calling the VA,” said Donald Swanson. “The office representative there made a halfhearted attempt to see [Roger]. I did everything I could to help him. But they just dropped the Homeless: continued on page 12

ball. The VA just sits on its hands. They have a vet here who needs help. Not financial help—he just needs someone to give him his medication and help him get over this.” No one at the Maui Veterans Administration clinic or the VA center in Honolulu would discuss Roger Swanson’s case. “We have to abide by the HIPAA Rule,” Fred Ballard, the public information officer for the VA in Honolulu told me, referring to the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act updated in 2003 to make VA case information completely confidential. “We need the veteran’s expressed written permission to release the records to his family. Without written permission, there’s nothing we can do.” In fact, though Roger clearly has mental problems and obviously can’t take care of himself, he’s not completely lost. “Roger is very functional,” said Kohm. “His

“[THE] CLERK STATED THAT MR. SWANSON HAD CONTACTED THE COURT BY TELEPHONE THIS MORNING AT 8:05 AM AND INDICATED THAT HE HAD MISSED THE BUS FROM KIHEI,” IS HOW THE OFFICIAL TRIAL MINUTES PUT IT. BY 9:21 A.M., WHEN ROGER STILL HADN’T SHOWED UP, JUDGE AUGUST DENIED THE MOTION. disability only hits him in certain ways. He’s got a sense of humor. Roger can be charming. But only in in-depth conversations do you realize that it’s not all clicking.” One day, coming out of another contentious court hearing, Kohm repeatedly asked Roger for access to the apartment. He needed to show it to prospective buyers. At the very least, he’d need to photograph it. But Roger kept saying no. “I’m just too messy,” Kohm said Roger finally told him. “Everybody’s got to be good at something,” Kohm replied, which he said prompted one of the only times he saw Roger laugh. Times were becoming difficult for Roger. He had lived at Kihei Kai Nani for five years. It was his home in every sense of the word. But now he was facing eviction. And worse. On Nov. 29. 2004, the day before Kohm was scheduled to auction off Roger’s home, Roger filed an extraordinary motion with the court. Handwritten on three pages of notebook paper, it was a plea for the court to stop the impending foreclosure and property auction. He wrote that he had just filed for a “senior reverse mortgage” that would take “approximately 6 to 8 weeks” to go through. The mortgage, which had earlier been recommended by Kohm, would have been for $174,000.

“Since said real property is currently valued at approximately $325,000 dollars [sic], their [sic] completing said senior reverse mortgage is virtually assured,” Roger scrawled in all caps. “Defendant prays that the court suspend the sale of defendants [sic] property so that defendant can complete said mortgage, pay said judgment and save his home.” Once again, Roger was too late. August scheduled a hearing for January, 2005 on the motion, but the auction went ahead as planned. Held in the August’s courtroom, it attracted 13 approved bidders, which Kohm called “an unusually good turnout.” William S. Hurley of Kihei was the highest bidder, offering $265,000. Of course, where Roger Swanson is concerned, nothing is certain. At a later confirmation hearing, where any new bid at least five percent greater than the last bid was acceptable, local realtor Rodrigo Bumanglag offered $288,000 for the property and got it. Reflecting Maui’s new real estate world, the price was an astonishing $202,000 more than Roger had paid just five years earlier. Still, Roger fought to save his home. On Jan. 4, 2005, the hearing on his motion to suspend foreclosure came up at 8:15 a.m. Everyone was there—except Roger. “[The] clerk stated that Mr. Swanson had contacted the court by telephone this morning at 8:05 am and indicated that he had missed the bus from Kihei,” is how the official trial minutes put it. By 9:21 a.m., when Roger still hadn’t showed up, Judge August denied the motion. A few weeks later August ordered the Maui Police Department “to remove any tenants or occupants” from Kihei Kai Nani #151. Still, Roger and his heaps of garage and squalor remained. Kohm, who had always been concerned about Roger’s welfare, continued to try to help him. “Despite warnings, contact, and help sought from family and the Veterans’ Administration, Defendant Swanson has not taken any steps to move out or get housing,” he wrote in a Mar. 16, 2005 declaration that asked Judge August to immediately transfer $10,000 from the sale proceeds to Swanson’s bank account. “An emergency exists such that the Commissioner would like to make funds available, so that once Swanson is evicted, some security is available.” August agreed, and approved the transfer the same day. The drama reached a crescendo on Mar. 18, two days after the $10,000 transfer was approved. For reasons known only to him, Roger broke into his old apartment. The KKN Association—still relying on its tried and true regulations—called the police and had him thrown out. Putting it mildly, Kohm said that “Roger took over everyone’s lives that week he was evicted.” Roger eventually got a truck and moved his stuff out. The Kihei Kai Nani Association went back to court and got a restraining order, forbidding Roger from coming anywhere near the condo property, though tenants say he still pops up occasionally to ask about his mail. As far as where he’s living now, that’s a mystery. And there doesn’t seem to be anything his family can do about it, except stew in fury. “Talk about a board of directors that is totally inhuman,” Donald Swanson told me. “They think they’re like gods. They were aware of his condition. They gave lip service to him. But they threw him out with a cop on either side of him.” MTW

The Thing About Ulupalakua Last year’s Chefs’ Challenge, as told by Adam Condon Considered by many to be Maui’s outdoor version of the Iron Chef competition, the Chefs’ Challenge is the Ulupalakua Thing’s most popular event. Last year, Wolfgang Puck’s Spago Chef de Cuisine Adam Condon knew that and decided it was time to enter.

13th Annual Ulupalakua Thing Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Tedeschi Vineyards and Ulupalakua Ranch on Highway 37. Tickets are $15 pre-sale, $20 at the gate, keiki 10 & under get in free. For more info, call 888-808-1036 or visit www.ulupalakuathing.com.

Having only come to Maui a couple years before from the Big Island, Condon recognized that the Ulupalakua Thing was “the place to go”—a showcase for Hawaiian farmers, agricultural vendors and the celebrity chefs he’d read about. He was excited to “cook and have fun,” mingle with his new community and maybe even bring a little attention to his restaurant. He looked forward to the challenge of doing something “new, not the norm,” working in an outdoor kitchen he was

unfamiliar with, using surprise ingredients to create several courses on the spot and with the added pressure of doing it all in under an hour. But then it rained. A lot. Event organizers scrambled to make provisions for the change in weather. At one point, Condon was asked if they should still go on, considering the detrimental effect water would have on preparation, ingredients and electrical appliances. “I looked up at the tent,” he said. “It was completely bowed—filled with water—and I said ‘Yeah, let’s do it.’ What more can you ask for than when people throw stuff at you like that? That’s why we’re in the restaurant business!” He started to make wild mushroom agnolotti, but it started raining on the pasta dough. So he made these fat linguini noodles out of squash. Despite forgetting to actually cook the rice he had in the rice cooker for dessert—forcing him to make a mock Fosters with carmelized apple-bananas, raspberry vinaigrette and some sort of lavender infusion—Condon won the Challenge. He thinks it’s because of the elk meatballs he prepared. In the Chefs’ Challenge, there are two heats, each with two competitors. Each chef is allowed to have two assistants, as well as a list of possible pantry ingredients and a couple

And in this corner... hints as to what main items they will be using. Will it be elk meat? Fresh ahi? How about pickled pig’s feet? You never know… Then there are the vendor donated goods, like Olowalu Nui Farm tomatoes, Kula Country Farms’ raspberries, Ono Organic Farms’ apple bananas, Maui Kula lavender and Surfing Goat Dairy’s goat cheese, among countless others. This year’s chefs include: Greg Gaspar from the Maui Prince Hotel, Makena Resort and Damian LaBeaux from Roy’s Kihei Bar & Grill in the first heat, followed by Keith Endo from Vino and Jake Belmonte from The Fairmont Kea Lani. Chef Condon will be back this year to judge,

along with Pamela Young and Guy Hagi. Condon says “freshness is best” and he’ll be looking for “creativity” as well as flavor and use of ingredients. He also has three tips for this year’s contenders: “The microphones are good if you can walk through the dishes. Last year, Scott did that well and I think it was helpful. I wasn’t so good at that. “Don’t try to plan too much. You never know what’s gonna happen. “Simplicity is golden. You want to be able to taste the great products of the local vendors... with as few of the ingredients as you can. Too many can mask the flavor of the dish.” MTW

EMPLOYEE OF THE

WEEK AS TOLD TO GABRIELLE POCCIA

Nori Crist Baker, Kihei Caffe I was a junior in high school when I moved from Redwood City, California five years ago and I have been in Kihei pretty much ever since. I moved here with my parents and could not believe how nice it is here. I have always been a bit of a wuss for the cold and the change in climates is great. I like being able to ride my bike everywhere. I have worked at the Kihei Caffé for about two and a half years. I started out as a food runner but gradually worked my way to running the register and in the past two months I have begun baking. We did not have a steady baker at the time and so I volunteered to learn how to make the pastries for the café. I have always baked with my mom and so I had some experience. The first day I made the cinnamon buns we got really good feedback and I have been helping out since. Now I come in early in the morning and bake until the rush starts. Then I help out on the floor. When we close I go back to preparing for the next day. We have a really different mix of people that work at the café. There are all types of people of all different ages. We do not have one particular manager but we all look out for each other. That makes our jobs pretty equal. My favorite part about the job is watching a customer’s reaction to the baked goods. It makes me feel good when someone enjoys what I have made. Hotels have asked us about buying bulk pastries, but we don’t have the time to make them. We stay pretty busy making the fresh baked goods for the café. MTW

‘Summer of the Pelvic Bone’ Friday, 10 p.m. at Casanova [MUSIC] Two years ago, the Los Angeles Times declared a “summer of the pelvic bone,” based on the latest trend in low-rise jeans. Since then, the midline has continued dipping and the butt crack has become the new cleavage. Levi’s introduced their new “Too Superlow” jeans for women, as well as their “Dangerously Low” and “Offender” lines for men, while the brand Gasoline came up with an ingenious low-rise jean with built-in bungee cord to adjust the drop as needed. How low are YOU willing to go? At Casanova this Friday, if you don your deviantly down waistlines, you can not only enter the contest for best low-risers—with $300 in cash prizes and from the Enchantress Boutique, as well as The Love Shack—but also, you’re eligible for some $2 drink specials and you can significantly reduce the $10 cover charge down to a mere $5 to get in. DJ Arge will spin Latin, Merengue, Cumbia House music and Reggaeton, along with live conga accompaniment by Elan Rae. [SAMANTHA CAMPOS]

Rick Olson Live!

Monumental Sunday, 3 p.m.; 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at the MACC’s McCoy Theater [FUNDRAISER] David Brower was probably America’s greatest and best-known conservationist in the 20th century. He led the battles against damming Dinosaur National Monument, the Yukon and the Grand Canyon itself. He successfully fought for national parks in the Cascades, Alaska, Point Reyes, Kings Canyon and a half dozen other places. Yet there’s a certain irony to screening the outstanding documentary Monumental, which chronicles Brower’s “Fight for Wild America,” as a fundraiser for the Sierra Club’s Maui Chapter. After all, though Brower was the Sierra Club’s first executive director—a post he held for 17 years—the Club ousted him in 1969 for being “arrogant,” “financially reckless” and ultimately too militant and radical. Brower stayed a member of the Sierra Club Board of Directors until he resigned in protest in May of 2000. “They’re not spending enough time worrying about what is happening to the Earth,” he told CNN. “They’re worried more about their standing rules and what’s happening in committees.” Brower died six months later at the age of 88. One of his last wishes was that the Sierra Club “be more bold.” Since his death, the federal government has approved drilling in ANWR, gutted environmental laws and basically declared open season on the American wilderness. I’d say that Sierra Club showings of films like Monumental are long overdue. Tickets cost $10. For more information, call the Maui Film Festival at 572-3456. [ANTHONY PIGNATARO]

Saturday, 3 p.m.-5 p.m. at the Ulupalakua Ranch Store [BOOK SIGNING] Maui Whispers, by local author Rick Olson, tells the tale of “renowned sea-life painter” Sky Shafer and his Norwegian girlfriend Karina Johnsen. They live the good life on Maui, but then Sky finds out that it all might be a sham! Nasty rumors begin flying around, then Sky’s vicious ex-girlfriend Rosie Faber comes back! It’s vibrant! It’s colorful! It’s intimate, yet revealing. Awwww yeaaaaahhhhh. Anyway, Olson’s going to be at the Ranch Store signing copies. So go see him. He’s probably a really nice guy. [ANTHONY PIGNATARO]

FILMCRITIQUE

BY COLE SMITHEY

Happy Ending Don’t panic when the end of the world hits Douglas Adams’ popular novel comes to filmic life as Earthling Arthur Dent (Martin Freeman) hitches a ride into outer space with his furtively alien pal Ford Perfect (Mos Def—The Italian Job) when Earth is detonated to make way for a hyperspace bypass. Wacky aliens prevail as Arthur and Ford hitch their way onto a stolen spacecraft with a bipolar (two-headed) President of the Galaxy, Zaphod Beeblebrox (hilariously played by Sam Rockwell—Matchstick Men) and Beeblebrox’s cherished postmodern American assistant Trillian (Zooey Deschanel).

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

★★★★★ Rated PG-13/110 mins.

Adams’ infectious British humor translates well in debut director Garth Jennings’ faithful manipulation of the wholesome themes at hand. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is an enjoyable sci-fi romp with a strong twist of self-effacing British raillery that children of all ages will get a charge from. Adams was a comedy writer who originally wrote The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy as part of a radio show, five-book trilogy and BBC television show. The original series was set in an underwater world that’s hinted at in the opening sequence of the movie wherein dolphins (advanced alien creatures) sing a goodbye ode to the Earth with the refrain, “So long and thanks for all the fish.” When the dolphins make their skyward exit you can’t help but break into a chuckle. Right away you’re snapped into Adams’ irreverent gentle black humor that shimmers with an anti-humanist environmentalist theme conveyed by dolphins doing gymnastic flips in the open night air under a moonlit sky. The kicker comes when the dopey Arthur Dent is introduced as a male counterpart to Bridget Jones. The fact that Arthur remains throughout the movie as an anti-hero space traveler wearing pajama bottoms, terrycloth robe and slippers merely adds to the joy of enduring post apocalypse reality with a meandering Brit who can barely brush his teeth in the morning. Nevertheless, our awkward protagonist Arthur did a very important thing when he saved the life of his loyal friend when the newly arrived Ford Perfect attempted to shake hands with a moving car that he postulated to be the governing life form on Earth. Arthur shoved Ford from the path of the oncoming vehicle and unwittingly insured his own survival when the Earth

becomes vaporized to make way for a hyperspace bypass by exquisitely ugly Vogon aliens. The Earth’s destruction coincides with a roadway bypass that signals the demolition of Arthur’s picturesque rural cottage. Things could be worse for Arthur. Adams’ absurdist humor takes on a surreal tone when Ford rushes Arthur to a local pub to down six pints of beer in their last 12 minutes on Earth. The bar patrons soon put paper bags on their heads and lie down together in an implicit suicide pact while the camera cuts to people in big cities running through the streets like cattle. The end of the planet is an oddly peaceful affair that promises the audience a more meaningful and personal story of one lucky man and the equally fortunate girl (Trillian) that he adores. Voice over narration by Stephen Fry clues us into the contents of the Hitchhiker’s Guide that Ford contributed to as a writer. The words “Don’t Panic” are imprinted across the back of the most popular book in the universe, and serve to support the dry humor that’s most thoroughly expressed by Marvin the Paranoid Android (voiced by Alan Rickman). Marvin’s lazy pessimism augurs the goofy adventure with knowing asides as he moans about the uselessness of every endeavor. The thematic centerpiece of Hitchhiker’s Guide comes when a giant computer answers the eternal question, “What is the meaning of life?” The computer’s surprising answer is appropriately short and inscrutable after keeping people waiting for millions of years for the solution. But the computer trumps its offhand answer by raising another question about what would be a more appropriate question in the first place. Here, Adams’ prescient wit subtly demands something of the viewer that extends the macrocosmic vantage point of the story. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy unspools like an effortless compilation of humor from Monty Python, Men In Black, Mars Attacks and Brazil. It’s a skeptical satire that fits slapstick physical humor with a biting sense of the importance of creative thought. In short, it’s very British, in the best sense of the word. MTW

New This Week HITCHHIKER’S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY (PG) - Action/Adventure, Comedy, Science-Fiction Earthman Arthur Dent is having such a bad day— not only is his house about to be bulldozed, but he discovers that he has an alien for a best friend. Actually, that would be rad! Meanwhile, Planet Earth is about to be demolished to make way for a hyperspace bypass (so very Jetsons!). The universe begins when the world ends, nothing is what it seems—even a simple towel is the most useful thing in the universe. Who knew? See Film Critique. XXX: STATE OF THE UNION - (PG13) Action/Adventure - NSA Agent August Gibbons (Samuel L Jackson) is fresh off the success of his last renegade recruitment, and once again finds himself in need of an outsider. Gibbons and his new agent Darius Stone (Ice Cube), now code-named "XXX," (uh, does that mean he’s a badass?) together must track down a military splinter group that is conspiring to overthrow the U.S. government.

Now Showing A LOT LIKE LOVE - (PG13) - Romantic Comedy - Supposedly, this flick is about destiny, connection and the frequently fuzzy line between chance friendships and “happily ever after.” It traces the relationship of Oliver (Ashton Kutcher) and Emily (Amanda Peet) who met on a flight from Los Angeles to New York, each of them declaring that they couldn't be more wrong for each other. Uh, hello? Hasn’t everyone seen When Harry Met Sally already?! Yeah, we all know how this one ends. AMITYVILLE HORROR - (R) - Horror - So here we are again, at this house of horror. Back in 1994, Ronald Defeo confessed to methodically shooting his parents and four siblings while they slept, claiming "voices" in the house drove him to commit the heinous murders. A year later, the Lutz family moves into the house thinking it would be their dream house. But shortly after settling in, bizarre and unexplainable events, nightmarish visions and evil—worse than just a leaky roof—resides... Damn, who is their real estate agent?! THE BEAUTY SHOP – (PG-13) – Comedy – Here we are back in the chair again. Gina (Queen Latifia) has finally had it with her egotistical boss (Kevin Bacon). She ups and leaves, not only to open up a shop of her own but also taking a few of the key clients and shampoo girl (Andie MacDowell, Mena Suvaris and Alicia Silvertsone). Fixing up this rundown salon, Gina inherits a very colorful and sexy sassy new group of people, or just what is needed in a beauty shop—a bunch of chatty Kathy’s.

seemed like just a simple guy (Jimmy Fallon) she meets and falls in love with. However, you know there’s always a problem. This time it’s baseball. Even though their lives are very different, the relationship seems perfect until... yes that’s right—the baseball season begins and she has to compete with his first true love: the Boston Red Sox. Hang in there, Drew. CONSTANTINE – (R) – Action-Adventure, Suspense, Horror and Thriller – As our astute intern puts 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. 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. 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 battles against “the popular girls” to rise up the ranks and win... something. A trophy? The presidency? Oh yeah, selfesteem. Whoopee. We all know self-esteem gets you nowhere. Just look at Robert Blake! Stars Michelle Trachtenberg, Joan Cusack and Kim Cattrall. THE INTERPRETER - (PG13) - Drama, Thriller African-born U.N. interpreter Silvia Broome, (Nicole Kidman) inadvertently overhears a death threat against an African head of state scheduled to address the United Nation's General Assembly. Of course, she realizes that she has become a target and that no ones believes her, especially Tobin Keller (Sean Penn), the federal agent charged with protecting her. KING’S RANSOM - (PG13) - Comedy - Malcom King (Anderson) is a wealthy and arrogant businessman. And his ex-wife has plans to take him for all he’s worth. So well, duh, he’s determined to avoid losing his fortune to her and he gets this bright idea to plan his own kidnapping with the help of his mistress, and her ex-con brother. But soon enough, he’s not the only one who has kidnapping on his mind. KUNG FU HUSTLE - (R) - Action/Adventure, Foreign, Comedy - Shanghai in the 1930s is a very dangerous

time when gangs ruled the streets. The most notorious of these, the Axes, strike fear into the hearts of honest citizens and inspire admiration in one young wannabe, who wreaks havoc when he recklessly poses as an Axe member and causes a riot between the real gang members and the denizens of a housing project. MERCHANT OF VENICE - (R)- In 16th century Venice, when a merchant must default on a large loan from an abused Jewish moneylender for a friend with romantic ambitions, the bitterly vengeful creditor demands a gruesome payment instead. Bill collectors at it again. The film deftly explores the themes of love vs loyalty, law vs justice, and passion vs reason. MILLION DOLLAR BABY – (PG 13) – Romantic Drama – This Oscar-nominated film is getting rave reviews, but it’s really just another cliché-filled picture about a young boxer who’s had a tough life but, through sheer force of will, fights the good fight. Stars Hillary Swank, Morgan Freeman and Clint Eastwood, who also directed it. 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. SAHARA - (PG13) - Action/Adventure - Explorer Dirk Pitt (Matthew McConaughey) takes on a treasure hunt in several regions of North Africa in search of a ship called The Ship of Death—why, Dirk, why?! Anyway, along with his smarty pants sidekick (Steve Zahn), they use their clever heroics to help out the beautiful Doctor Eva (Penelope Cruz), who believes this ship is the reason why there are a lot of mysterious deaths. She’s smart, that one. See Film Critique. SIN CITY – (R) – Action-Adventure and Crime/Gangster – Another tale of a violent city where the police department is more corrupt than the bad seeds. This futuristic tale follows three stories, including one involving Marv (Mickey Rourke), a bad ass who is a Terminator-like, nearly impossible-to-kill street fighter. He goes on a rampage of vengeance when his one-night-stand gets murdered— correction, his one true love. Aw, what a guy to care the morning after! Also starring Bruce Willis, Benicio Del Toro, Michael Madsen and Jessica Alba.

BY SHAUNNA KEOUGH

‘Everybody Is Somebody’ No one knows high school drama better than Miss Sue Ann Loudon When I arrived to meet Miss Loudon in her classroom, she was relaxed and reflective, perched on her reclining chair in front of a wooden stage. She sat amidst racks of character clothing, stage props and old photographs. A former student of Miss Loudon’s stopped by to say hello, as have so many of her students over the years. “We’ll never uncover the veil of secrecy that is Miss Loudon,” the student said to me with a snicker. He was kneeling beside her, trying to recall 40 years of successful performances at Baldwin High under her creative direction. “What about Grease?” he asked. “Oh, that must have been the late ‘80s,” she replied. “Or was it the ‘90s? Oh, I can’t remember!” Actually it was last year. But with a solid five shows a year over the past 40 years, you really can’t blame her. Loudon did

remember the first show she put on in 1965, Bye Bye Birdie. “That is my fondest memory,” she said, “because it was the first really cool thing that we got to do. It helped me fall in love with theater. There’s nothing like the first. The kids were so excited and so appreciative.” Loudon first visited Maui on a summer trip back in the 1960s and, like most who visit the island, fell in love with it and vowed to return. After graduating from Central Missouri State Teachers College, Loudon found a job teaching at Baldwin High School. Talk to any one of her students and you’ll quickly learn that Miss Loudon is an extremely dedicated and demanding teacher, a reputation she acknowledges demurely. “I used to be intimidating to the kids, but as the years go by, you change,” she said. “I still yell. But I always tell them, ‘I am not mad, I am not angry. I am just yelling because I yell.’” It’s difficult to imagine anything but

If she were a painting, Miss Loudon would look a lot like this

She speaks with great joy about her students. “It’s been lovely here at Baldwin because the kids have been so wonderful!” she said. Loudon’s dedication to the students is one of her defining aspects. She started “Diamond Lil,” an annual performance of singing, dancing and acting that Loudon oversees, put on for the sole purpose of fundraising for the senior class. Every year, at the end of “Diamond Lil,” it is well known that when the time comes for Miss Loudon to go onstage to receive praise for her work, she is nowhere to be found. It made sense then, that when discussing the celebration next weekend in her honor, Loudon shyly covered her face with her hands. “It’s an overwhelming thought that somebody would want to do this for me,” she said. “Baldwin has fabulous, successful teachers and I think I’m just one of many talented individuals here.” Loudon’s simple advice she gives to her students when they leave her classroom is, “If you love it, then do it.” To her, theater is a life skill that teaches you discipline and work ethic, attributes that carry over into life after high school. “Having compassion in life is one of the most important things,” she said. “Always remember that everybody is somebody.” In an attempt to uncover the “veil of secrecy” that her former student spoke of, I asked Miss Loudon what it is about her that harbors such a celebration in her honor. She leaned back and shyly replied, “I’m just a theater teacher who goes to work, then goes home.” MTW

You can sell anything right now. If you can get a person to listen to you for five minutes, you can unload on them, for profit, any number of things you (and your friends) no longer need. Go ahead and try it; you could use the cash, and in my book the gullible are fair game—to some extent. Don’t abuse this power. Make sure that whatever you’re ditching might have some chance of being useful to whoever you’re forcing to pay for it. You have the ability to make each of these transactions a win-win (even if weighted heavily in your favor). Don’t settle for anything but.

You’ve come to a fork in the Yellow Brick Road, my sweet friend. I’m not concerned with which direction you’ll take, just who you’ll become to get there. Will you choose to have the sensitive heart of the woodman, the innocence of the girl, the courage of the lion, or the brains of the scarecrow? Or will you continue in your present mode, embodying the misunderstood wickedness of the witch who stands in the way of all the less miserable parts of you? Okay, yeah, I know your life is way more complicated than a fairy tale, but sometimes looking at your choices in that way can be useful. Try it now.

“we do all the work . . . so you can enjoy your yard”

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) “The restroom is for customers only,” sniffed the bookstore queen, surveying my bedraggled self with distaste. Having bought tea and given their stock a fair perusal, I said, “Yes, may I use it?” “Are you going to buy something?” he inquired, busily dusting the shelves. I restrained a Leo roar and said delicately: “Where’s the key, please?” He sighed and handed me the key, attached to a wooden letter-M. I put it on the edge of the sink. It promptly tumbled into the basin, with the long chain holding the key spilling into the drain. Pulling on the links, it came up easily—sans key. I wasn’t really embarrassed to hand the keyless “M” back to the bitter queen. I just wish I had done it on purpose. This week, don’t resist the urge to push people’s buttons and cause trouble. It’ll happen anyway—you might as well enjoy yourself.

Jason Meyer 573-1920

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) You’re a talker. Maybe not on the level of those Geminis or Aquarians, but you know how to use your words. What you’re not quite as good at is communicating without them. Reading others’ body language or being aware of what you’re conveying with yours is an important skill to have. Before you open your mouth this week, see what’s already being said, nonverbally, by you and those you’re with. Make sure your handshake and hug come across as warm and personable as you hope they are, and make sure that what you say hasn’t already been said another way.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) The endless repetition of this week may have you feeling like a goldfish in a bowl—stared at, fed the same crap every day, and the same boring scenery along the way. Even your reflection has begun to bore you. Before you let ennui really take hold, you should know: This is the kind of week you’ll long for in the weeks to come. Soon, your little world may crack, spilling you in a giant wave out to the next big pond. You’ll have to say goodbye forever to the relatively tiny, safe world you’ve occupied for years. This vision of your future might excite or terrify you. Until it happens, though, try to be surprised by the little plastic castle the next few times it comes around. You’ll miss it when it’s gone.

HIV COUNSELING AND TESTING 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.

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22)

Maui Lawn Works

You might be horrified to discover that the captivating person who’s recently taken an interest in you is probably attracted to what you consider your worst feature. Yup, that crooked nose, unruly hair, your penchant for altered mind states (to put it tactfully), your introversion. These are all potentially compelling to those prepared to see them holistically. The due date for self-acceptance is coming up, and Cutie’s there to help you feel proud of your least favorite part. You’ve already acknowledged the double-edged sword of your “good” qualities, like your intelligence, or beauty. Now realize that even your faults have virtue.

Sometimes you can know too much. Once you understand your own innocence or charm, it ceases to be innocent or charming to everyone else. Escargot, caviar and honey are more delicious in ignorance than when you consider what they really are. And if you truly think about all the shit that’s going down in the world today, anger, frustration and sadness can be incapacitating. Cease your current attempts to understand or explain your creative process! While I would agree that in most situations, knowledge is power, in this case: the less you know, the better. Don’t scare the Muse, she doesn’t like it.

Watch out for bigots, because for some reason they’ll be magnetized towards you this week. Not only that, but they’ll be compelled to loudly proclaim their offensive and backwards viewpoints in your presence, in such a way that you’ll be obliged to refute or counter them, lest onlookers lump you in with such idiocy. Of course, that’s exactly what these assholes want. Don’t engage with them, if at all possible. Just shake your head and walk away. If you find you’ve got to open your mouth before you leave them to their stupidity, try to keep from getting emotionally involved—stay cool and stick to the facts, which as we both know, speak for themselves.

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19)

FAX NUMBER 808.661-0446

Capricorns make good bosses, but you can also be immensely valuable employees. This week, regardless of which role you play, take advantage of the harmonious interchanges made possible by a beautiful Venus-Saturn sextile. That means that if you’ve got some tricky questions or requests that you’ve been putting off, now’s the time to make them, since it’ll be easy-peasy, no sweat. Get that raise, or convince one of your coworkers to finally start pulling their own weight. One more minor incentive, in case you’re still daunted from getting real with those you work with: if you really go there, you might even get laid, as a bonus.

Be hedonistic. The array of new experiences available to you is unfolding wildly in all directions. You’ve suddenly got access to flavors you never even knew existed before. Don’t stick to your old favorites out of timidity. They’ll always be there. Try the new shit, the pistachio chocolate hot pepper or the ginger pumpkin pie ice creams, rather than plain old vanilla. It’s not often that such a buffet of life’s richness is laid out before you. To snub it for the comfort of your armchair and bag of chips would be rude, idiotic and ultimately lame.

MAILING

Who says artists can’t get rich? Prove that jackass wrong for such idiocy. Okay, you might not achieve Trumplevel wealth with your creative ventures, but you have a chance to make a few bucks now by doing what you love. I can’t imagine a single good reason why you’d abstain. Dreaming is all very well and good, but don’t let this opportunity slip through your fingers because you’re stuck in a fantasy. Get busy. You’ll always have a chance to dream, but the moment when you can earn some dough from it is right now. Seize it.

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Let’s take it as a given that, at least to some degree, our perception of “reality” creates that reality. For example, in one of my worst living situations, I lived in a total crack neighborhood with half a dozen speed freaks and all their friends. Their unhealthy relationship with “Tina” seemed to severely and negatively affect their “interface with consensus reality.” What the hell am I talking about? I’m just saying that your current use of constant activity to keep from dealing with the harder stuff in your life is more damaging than an addiction to any hard drug. Slow down, my friend, slow down.

HOLOHOLOGIRL

BY SAMANTHA CAMPOS

Much of the Same Jazz is an intensified feeling of nonchalance. - Françoise Sagan It always happens when I experience good jazz—that feeling like there’s no other music in the world worth mentioning. It happened the first time a music instructor introduced me to a John Coltrane album. And the first time I heard Billie Holiday, late at night and alone in my room. It also happened a couple weeks ago, when I went to see Dianne Reeves at the MACC’s Castle Theater. Now, I must admit, my knowledge of jazz is limited to the classics—aside from the occasional jazz-funk-fusion band, acid jazz remix or Brazilian jazz vocalist, I’m not that up-to-date on the contemporary stuff. Fortunately, I have friends who are—Friends far cooler than I. Friends who are smarter (ahem, at least musically speaking), more hip (because they would never say “hip,” for one) and definitely cute enough for me to go along with whatever BS they happen to be feeding me at the time. In this case, the bullshit was no bullshit. Seeing Diane Reeves and her band made me vow to never listen to anything but jazz ever again. I was in awe… You go to my head and you linger like a haunting refrain And I find you spinning ‘round in my brain Like the bubbles in a glass of champagne… I couldn’t breathe! I kept getting chills! I was swooning! Nothing but jazz from now on!! Vive le jazz!!! You go to my head with a smile that makes my temperature rise Like a summer with a thousand Julys You intoxicate my soul with your eyes” Anyway, it lasted about two days—until I went to see Jack Johnson and G. Love for the big Kokua Festival at the A&B Amphitheater. And then I forgot all about that silly ‘ol jazz stuff. Technically speaking, we missed G. Love—much to the anguish and sorrow of my girl Kim— and I do believe I was too sloshed to have actually noticed if Jacky-boy was on stage doing jazz hands or if he was just sitting there while hundreds of females shrieked with glee. Honestly, I just couldn’t tell ya. See, that’s what happens when your friend’s parents drop you off at a concert. An evil rawwk concert. And you spend the whole time in the booze line, missing John Cruz and Ozomotli, spilling beer on models, bullying strange men and failing to get your best girl backstage after you’ve been drinking Steel Reserve for $1.59 a six-pack. Turns out that’s not such a great value after all. The rest of the week went much like other weeks. On Friday, TBB, his gal BJ and I went to the Kahului Ale House, where I was once again told that my countenance resembled Mexican food products. “Yeah, you’ve got that whole burrito vibe goin’ on,” said the young man, smiling, before he asked me for my phone number. Mad props to TBB for supplying the pen! After being charmed, then ridiculed, then charmed again by Jedi—of the world’s most beautiful family— and his lovely, waaay more levelheaded girlfriend, the kids and I bid bon voyage to Texas-bound Demune, and were off to Hapa’s in Kihei to check out DJ Rap. And yes, she was even hotter in person. Plus, she could spin a mean CD or two. And then, also like prior weeks, Kim and I took a slightly longer lunch on Thursday with a couple of construction-working buddies, eventually hitting the Westin poolside bar in Ka’anapali and then enjoying after-lunch drinks at the Sly Mongoose. It’s okay. I just told my editor I was listening to jazz. Samantha Campos is still looking for someone to play the glockenspiel in her new wave ‘80s German punk band. MTW
