HATES DOGMATISTS

LOVE IT FOR REAL

It’s a sad thing when people confuse patriotism with loyalty to a leader or party instead of to a nation’s founding principles (Letters to the editor, Jun. 16, 2005). Witness the spectacle of a ruling party accusing those who disagree with its actions as hating their country when they are really trying to restore balance. One difference between a democracy and a dictatorship is that allegiance is pledged to the laws and values of the constitution rather than to a partisan leader who insists on having it all his way. Actually, our leaders are sworn to defend the constitution, and efforts to undermine its guarantees are rightly seen as grounds for impeachment, dismissal, even punishment. Tyrants try to rule public thought and speech by controlling public discussion, by intimidating questioners and critics while suppressing inconvenient facts and resistance. Thanks to a free press, decent public education, a Fairness Doctrine and public broadcasting, we were long defended against deceitful domination by one faction. Unfortunately, President Reagan got rid of the Fairness Doctrine, most mass media and press are now owned by a few large corporations, public schools are failing, and public broadcasting has been intimidated. Under these circumstances, patriotism for many means supporting the ruling administration, even if it seeks to dismantle the constitution, unfairly favors supporters, makes a mockery of science and truth, routinely violates agreements and openly behaves the way it accuses its enemies of doing. Self-righteously deluded dogmatists are tragically unable to see their own sins; instead they despise them in others as scapegoats. -Daniel Grantham, Haiku

But hell, that was six weeks before you freaked out on me. Seriously, neither she nor I enjoyed your terroristic threats. I guess you’ve been carrying your anger towards me around for quite awhile now. I suppose I should keep an eye out for you. That shouldn’t be too much trouble—the last couple of times I saw you, you were wearing a basketball jersey, spandex cycling shorts, black crew socks and water shoes. I’m looking forward to being amused during our next meeting, which you promised we would have. Take care.

MAUICOUNTY

BY ANTHONY PIGNATARO

WEDNESDAY, JUN. 15 Just four days after U.S. Attorney Ed Kubo told the Honolulu Advertiser the Supreme Court’s recent decision on medical marijuana makes Hawai’i’s special prescription law “dead” and opens the door for his office to prosecute doctors who prescribe the reefer to patients, Hawai’i Attorney General Mark Bennett issued a press release saying our medical marijuana law is alive and well. Well, that’s what I think he said. “An act that is criminalized under federal law is not necessarily a criminal act under state law, and vice versa,” wrote Bennett. “The federal government decides what acts are criminal in the federal system, and each state decides what acts are criminal in each state system. Thus, individuals who comply with Hawaii’s law regarding medical use of marijuana may nevertheless be violating federal law.” So that means the law is dead, right? Wrong! “The State of Hawaii will continue its medical marijuana program,” added Bennett. Now before you go saying, “Wow, that Bennett is a helluva guy,” remember that he’s also the state official who went to civil court in February to get 19-year-old Jason Reardon banned for life from Ka’anapali Beach because he tried to sell a bit of grass to some undercover Maui Police Officers.

THURSDAY, JUN. 16 It’s shocking, folks, but the state Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) has just issued a shark warning for the stretch of water between Fleming’s Beach and Honolua Bay. Sharks cited off Maui? Whaaaaaa?! No, really! On Jun. 15, DLNR personnel found several sharks feeding on “dozens of dead or dying akule in Honolua Bay.” Apparently there were a lot of dead fish because DLNR is telling everyone to stay away “for the next several days.” Wow, that’s terrifying—the dead fish, I mean. Sharks are a dime a dozen in Hawai’i, but it’s weird that so many fish would suddenly die in such a comparatively small area. The DLNR is investigating the fish kill, but they better hurry. Sharks eat fast.

FRIDAY, JUN. 17 It’s still a couple weeks before closing, but the Honolulu Advertiser began writing the obituary for Ooka Supermarket in Wailuku. Prices have been slashed in anticipation of clearing

all the shelves. When the 74-year-old institution closes at the end of June to make way for senior housing, Maui will finally, like much of the rest of the U.S., be at the complete mercy of giant corporate supermarkets. The days of going to the supermarket to buy a six-pack, some garden boots, a pint of poke and a couple chicken feet will be over, and Maui will just be a tad closer to the Mainland. But that’s not for two weeks—better get over there now, people. Cheap chicken feet are hard to find.

COCONUT WIRELESS THE WEEK IN REVIEW

SATURDAY, JUN. 18 Apropos of absolutely nothing, The Maui News ran a story today off the Knight Ridder wire on how American consumers are more “strapped for cash” than those who live in 37 other industrialized and post-industrialized nations. For a bunch of rich people, we sure are poor. According to the survey—which was conducted online by the ACNielsen Company—28 percent of U.S. residents live from paycheck to paycheck, beating out such economic powerhouses as Portugal and Brazil. Okay, that’s a bit harsh— Portugal and Brazil have made great strides as nation-states over the last couple of decades. Portugal especially, having been a brutal, ridiculous dictatorship in the early 1970s. But still, more people save money in Portugal than in the U.S.? Actually now that I think about it, that kind of makes sense. Nobody saves shit out here. Why should we, when we have that wonderful stock market and all that fantastic real estate speculation to keep us busy. Then there are Hedge Funds—have you seen those? Gloriously reckless. Derivatives? Magnificently risky. And with the gap between rich and poor stretching by the minute, who’s got money to deposit in some quaint checking account anyway?

SUNDAY, JUN. 19 Okay, what was the deal with that jittery guy who kept pushing a shopping cart back and forth in the Foodland parking lot tonight? No, really, I want to know. I mean, that shopping cart guy was strange—back and forth, back and forth, all in front of his own car, which seemed to be loaded to the roof with shopping bags. Then he put the shopping cart away and started to lean into the ground like he was going to start running a 400-meter race, but he never quite got started. He kept scratching his back, too. Like, a lot. He did all this for about 15 minutes, then he got in his car and took off, like he had some other pressing engagement. How do I know all this? No, I wasn’t

MONDAY, JUN. 20 Native Hawaiians are a “disenfranchised population” suffering “cultural trauma syndrome” that puts them at a greater risk of “suicide by lifestyle” by engaging in such unhealthy practices as smoking and eating poorly (sorry Spam, but I think that means you). Catchy, huh? Those were some of the viewpoints outlined at this year’s Pacific Global Health Conference— held Jun. 15-17 at the Hawai’i Convention Center in Honolulu— according to today’s Advertiser. Now before all of you start to get huffy about leftist schemes revolving around the “victimization” of various ethnic groups, think about this: a 2002 state Department of Health study mentioned in the story says that the average Hawaiian male will live six years less than the average male “in all other populations.” We know historically that Hawaiian men and women used to be very fit—before Capt. Cook and his swabbies dropped anchor, that is. But now, after what the Advertiser called “forced assimilation” took place, not so much.

MRF Blues When will Maui get a proper recycling facility?

Environmentally Aware

• 100% Recycled Newsprint Paper • Soy Based Dye Ink • Biodiesel Delivery

When Mayor Alan Arakawa was elected to office in 2002, he promised to finally build a real Materials Recovery Facility (MRF). It would put the county on the fast track to a full recycling program that’s been long needed. In fact, a prior environmental task force appointed by former Mayor James “Kimo” Apana pegged MRF construction as its number one recommendation to protect our island’s natural resources. But if you look around, we have no MRF. There are a variety of reasons for this, mainly dealing with “red tape,” but the county officials I spoke with acknowledged that we’d be very lucky to see ground break on a facility by the end of the year. The failure to build a MRF has nothing to do with money. The Maui County Council has appropriated $450,000 on a MRF in each budget for fiscal years 20042006, bringing the grand total to $1.3 million. According to Rob Parsons, the mayor’s assistant for environmental concerns, the original goal for an up-and-running MRF was January 2005, which would have coincided with implementing the Bottle Bill on Maui. That projected deadline has passed, but neither Parsons nor the Department of Public Works and Environmental Management had any idea when construction may start. Parsons claimed that lease negotiations between the county and S & F Land Company, which owns the proposed MRF site, have dragged on for over a year. Once the lease is finally signed, construction may begin on a short-term recycling facility. Currently, the county wants to put Maui’s new recycling facility in the central Maui baseyard off Mokolele Highway, between Kihei and Kahului. The 20,000square-foot building will house the equipment needed to sort all the island’s recyclables. The MRF will receive and separate all commingled recyclables—like mixed plastics and different grades of paper— into marketable goods that can be resold as raw material. The facility would use a magnet to separate steel from aluminum and air blowers to separate glass and plastics, according to a recent memo on the MRF from Parsons to the County Council. Yet the mayor’s office and Public Works acknowledged that the baseyard site would not be the final home for a MRF. The county would prefer a final MRF constructed on county land, and both departments alluded to the old Pu’unene airfield, recently purchased by the county from the state, as a final home for recycling facilities. The old airfield could ultimately combine a MRF and a facility for storing and CONTINUED ON PAGE 10➤

BY ANTHONY PIGNATARO

America’s Terrorist Ally Uzbekistan’s dictator makes Saddam look good Who is more brutal, Saddam Hussein or Islam Karimov? Reasonable victims disagree. Saddam’s goons electrocuted his political dissidents. Karimov, on the other hand, loots so much of his country’s oil wealth that his state torturers don’t have an electrical grid to draw upon. So his police torturers are forced to resort to medieval methods. They boil their “terrorist extremists”— businessmen who refuse to pay bribes—to death. There’s no question about which tyrant is more reviled. Saddam stole millions from the Iraqi treasury, yet he also spread around enough loot to build both a second-world infrastructure and an economic base of power among the Sunnis who amount to about 40 percent of the population. Karimov, absolute ruler of Uzbekistan since the 1991 Soviet collapse, is a glutton whose personal motto echoes David Bowie’s old promos for MTV: too much is never enough. Uzbekistan, a major player in the Caspian Sea energy sweepstakes, is theoretically poised to become an economic success story. It is one of the world’s largest producers of natural gas and possesses large untapped reserves of crude oil. As the republic with Central Asia’s largest city— Tashkent has the region’s only bonafide international airport and even its own subway system—its strategic importance extends beyond the fact that it has common borders with all of the other “stans.” But, unlike Saddam’s Iraq, every cent generated by Uzbekistan’s vast resources goes straight into Islam Karimov’s pocket. His parsimony extends even to his thuggish militsia (military police): rather than pay them a realistic salary, he grants them free reign to coerce, rob, jail and even murder at will. Not only do the militsia pay for themselves, their lawless behavior ensures loyalty. Every cop knows that his neighbors would kill him were Karimov to disappear. Uzbekistan has a politically and ethnically diverse population comprising Uzbeks, Tajiks, Kazakhs and even Bukharan Jews. While it’s common to see women wearing miniskirts on the streets of such secular urban centers as Khiva and Samarkand, the rural Ferghana Valley is home to a fundamentalist brand of Islamism reminiscent of the Taliban. But all Uzbekistanis have something in common. It doesn’t matter whether you talk to a guerilla fighter for the radical Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, a prostitute playing the bar at the Tashkent Sheraton or a kid hawking sodas at a bazaar: everyone hates Karimov and everyone hates his militsia, a force whose pres-

ence is so intimidating that people plan their itineraries to avoid checkpoints and police stations where they’ll be robbed or worse. The full force of Uzbekistan’s outlaw police fell upon anti-government rioters shouting “freedom” and demanding free elections and an end to official corruption in the Ferghana Valley city of Andizhan on May 13. Although Karimov now claims that police acted independently, the UK Independent reports, “He was in command of the situation having flown to Andizhan from the capital Tashkent and almost certainly personally authorized the use of… deadly force. “The crowds, it has been established, were mown down by powerful coaxial 7.62mm machine guns mounted on two Russian-built BTR-80 armored personnel carriers,” wrote the paper. “Such cannons can unleash 2,000 rounds, barely pausing for breath before they need to be reloaded. A military helicopter was used for reconnaissance purposes and Uzbek troops armed with Kalashnikov assault rifles opened fire on the demonstrators creating a deadly field of fire with the BTR-80s from which there was no escape. The soldiers made sure they had done their work well. After the shooting had finished they went from body to body delivering ‘control shots’ to the back of people’s heads and scoured the town’s streets for survivors to finish off.” Karimov claims 32 Uzbek militsia and 137 civilians were killed in the disturbance, numbers belied by the local coroner’s own numbering system. “In the end hundreds of bodies— including those of women and children—filled the square,” said the Associated Press. Human rights groups say the real death count is between 500 and 1,000. Bush Administration officials, so strident when promoting liberation through regime change in Iraq, Ukraine and, ironically, when Islamists overthrew the democratically-elected Kyrgyz president—have downplayed the Uzbek massacre. “After 9/11,” explains Newsweek, “the Bush administration established a strategic partnership with Karimov, plunking down $500 million for a military base in southern Uzbekistan in preparation for operations in Afghanistan and paying $60 million or more a year in military aid and training.” The Bushies were aware of Karimov’s horrific record back in 2001. That year’s Human Rights Watch report on Uzbekistan put its “conservative estimate” of Uzbek political prisoners at 7,000. According to HRW: “Prison guards systematically beat prisoners with wooden and rubber truncheons and exacted particularly harsh punishment on those convicted on religious charges, subjecting them to additional beatings... Torture remained endemic in pretrial custody as well.” George W. Bush didn’t mind. He accorded Karimov all the honors of a full state visit. MTW

LC Watch Hilarious!

It’s here! Finally! At long last! The new issue of Booze Clues—the Maui County Department of Liquor’s official newsletter! It’s pretty much your standard LC bureaucratic newsletter. It goes out to to all the licensees. It’s got info for establishments on liquor license renewals, tax clearance, gross liquor sales reports, the long-awaited opening of the department’s Lahaina office, warnings on a new round of minor decoy sting operations, the elections of new chairpersons for the Liquor Commission and Adjudication Board, a certification exam schedule and a blonde joke. What, you didn’t know the LC had a sense of humor? Oh, when those guys aren’t checking time cards and conducting sting operations, they really like to cut loose with a classic blonde joke or two. Okay, maybe just one. But it’s racy! So you at home can share in all the joy, here’s the joke exactly as it appeared in the issue: “A blonde was driving home after work and got caught in a really bad hailstorm. Her car was covered with dents, so the next day she took it to a repair shop. The shop owner saw that she was a blonde, so he decided to have some fun. “He told her just to go home and blow

processing abandoned cars. Unfortunately, this long-term goal remains a bureaucratic dream. Even as prices continue to skyrocket for materials like steel to build a temporary MRF, and leasing land would cost taxpayers more than expediting the facility’s construction on a long-term site like the old airfield (which taxpayers have already paid for), the county seems intent on continuing the current leasing discussions for a short-term operation. “I’ve been hearing about the old [Pu’unene airfield] as a possible recycling site since [then Mayor] Linda Lingle hired me in 1991,” Public Works Recycling Coordinator Hana Steel said. She also speculated that procuring the land for recycling purposes may prove a lengthy and arduous process. Without a MRF, the county’s recycling apparatus is stressed to the max. In fact, so many Maui county residents are returning their bottles that redemption centers, storage facilities and wholesale recyclers are struggling to keep up. Parsons said he recognizes the urgency of a central recycling facility for Maui. “We’re not maximizing our ability to market recyclable [material] with the current drop-box facilities,” he said. The Department of Public Works and Management agree with the mayor and nonprofits like the Maui Recycling Group, in that a MRF is vital to Maui’s voter-approved decision to institute recycling programs instead of garbage incineration projects. It’s a key component of our island’s plan to capture as much resource material in our waste stream as possible for recycling. “We are leaving a debt of garbage to future generations by continuing [to throw recyclables] into landfill,” said Steel. “The amount a MRF will eventually cost the county is trivial relative to the costs of maintaining and monitoring landfills, which is about $500,000 per square acre.” And there’s a lot of recyclables ending up as trash in our county’s landfills. The most recent

estimates county officials could provide—which were 10 years old—claim Maui’s waste makeup is approximately 27 percent paper products, with glass, plastic and metals constituting another 18 percent. Another 43 percent is organic material that could end up as compost. Clearly, local environmental groups are unhappy with the sluggish pace towards construction and development. Wilma Nakamura, the Maui Recycling Group’s executive director, believes the delay sends the wrong message about the importance of recycling on Maui. “It’s hard to take this administration’s com-

mitment to recycling seriously,” she said. Diverting recyclable resources from landfills remains a high priority around the state. While Maui does not currently suffer from the landfill shortages that plague Oahu, the island’s growing population will put pressure on garbage capacity. Other factors, like resort renovations and future demolitions will quickly fill the current dump in Pu’unene. Meanwhile the MRF remains stuck between floors of the county’s Kalama O Maui building. That certainly questions the County’s commitment to recycling. MTW

into the tail pipe really hard and all the dents would pop out. So, the blonde went home, got down on her hands and knees and started blowing into her car’s tailpipe. Nothing happened. She blew a little harder, and still nothing happened. “Her roommate, another blonde, came home and asked, ‘What are you doing?’ The first blonde told her how the repairman had instructed her to blow into the tailpipe in order to get all the dents to pop out. “Her roommate rolled her eyes and said, ‘HELLOOOOOOooooo….. You need to roll up the windows!!”

Cunning Lingle What Governor Linda Lingle said in a Jun. 7, 2005 press release: “We have the opportunity to plan for the future by developing meaningful economic policies which will enhance our quality of life, protect the state’s fragile environment and natural resources, and perpetuate Hawai’i’s unique culture and lifestyle.”

What she didn’t say: Since Lingle was Maui County Mayor in the 1990s, she has believed that environmental issues should be handled at the county level, where developers have an easier time getting things done. When she became governor, she made Peter Young, a former real estate appraiser, chairman of the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR). Under his “leadership,” numerous critical DLNR posts have gone unfilled and he’s begun disbanding the important state Commission on Water and Resource Management. Far from removing Young, Lingle has repeatedly expressed full confidence in him.

By Anthony Pignataro

We’re standing in an open field, perched on a small hill in Kihei. It’s about 4:30 p.m. and the sun is a long way from setting. From my vantage point I can see Haleakala, Kaho’olawe, Lanai and the Pali. There’s a group of about 50 of us, all milling about near a blue pickup truck and a table showing photographs labeled “shoot bagging” and “pollination.” Holding corn shoots, a couple guys in khaki shirts that are so new they still have packing wrinkles are demonstrating “controlled pollination,” which is just a scientific term for managing plant sex. “The workers then empty all the pollen into the bag,” one of the kahaki guys tells us. “Then they shake it into the wrapped corn shoot and staple it in place. We call these ‘high tech breeding tools.’” The folksy joke about high tech tools and the comfortable shirts were no accident. The guys were officials with the Monsanto Corporation, an extremely powerful agri-business that last year did $5.5 billion in sales of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)—corn and soybean seeds genetically modified to carry resistance to herbicides and insects. Agri-businesses like Monsanto say GMOs are one of modern science’s greatest achievements—a perfectly safe breakthrough that’s undergone a fantastic level of testing and will feed a hungry world. In fact, they’re incredibly controversial throughout the world, especially in Europe, where residents have demanded stringent labeling requirements on all products containing GMOs. Even in the United States, scientists hold conflicting, sometimes hostile views on the safety and efficacy of injecting alien DNA into the fruits and vegetables we eat. For that reason, Monsanto has gone to great lengths to shape the American public’s view of genetically engineering food. To find out more about these public relations efforts, I visited the company’s GMO seed farm in Kihei on Jun. 9, 2005, as part of a tour sponsored by the Maui Chamber of Commerce.

It began at 3:30

GMO Facility” sign on Pi’ilani Highway and the directions were simply to drive through the entrance across from Kanani Road. It helped that someone hung a handpainted “Maui Chamber” banner at the entrance next to some brightly colored balloons and an armed Maui Police Officer. Near the main office, white party tents stood over white buffet tables. At the sign-in table everyone got name tags, very nice beige Monsanto baseball caps that fit surprisingly well, corn-shaped ball point pens marked “DEKALB”—a hokey homage to Monsanto’s seed of the same name, the first to offer resistance to the popular Monsanto-manufactured herbicide Roundup—and full-color spiral-bound brochures. The brochures, containing huge pictures of food and rolling farmland and recipes for Papaya Smoothies and Roasted Root Vegetable Napoleon, bore the logo of BIO—Biotechnology Industry Organization—a massive and powerful lobbying group representing a thousand GMO members. BIO exemplifies the tremendous political and economic power backing Monsanto and the whole biotech industry. BIO is the industry’s best friend in Washington. It’s donated nearly $200,000 to Democratic and Republican congressional candidates since 2000 alone and another $75,000 in soft money to the two parties.

than those claimed by a biotech industry source.” But they do make good public relations. Monsanto officials also like to say that GMOs will combat urban sprawl, though their evidence would seem to point to freeing up land for more urban construction. During the afternoon, company guides said that farms cover six million square miles today, but that number might have to rise considerably. “We’ll need 15 million square miles by 2050 if we don’t continue to grow our yields,” they said.

Though ostensibly “science-based”— we heard the words “integrity,” “evidence” and “transparency” constantly—the Monsanto officials who conducted the tour left out a considerable amount of information concerning the potential problems and threats from GMOs. This isn’t too surprising, considering that genetically modified corn is big business. A bag of conventional corn seed that contains 80,000 kernels and will plant 2.5 acres costs $85 to $90. Adding traits will bring the price up to $150 or even $180 per bag. That’s because it costs Monsanto $60 to $120 million to create each new biotech seed. It’s money well spent. From 1996 to 2000, acreage devoted to GMOs increased exponentially around the world, climbing from a mere four million acres in 1996 to 308 by the beginning of the 21st century. The rate of

“Absence of evidence of harm sits on the BIO board of directors. Though Monsanto officials said on repeated occasions throughout the afternoon that they offer facility tours on a “regular basis,” the novelty of the visit to such a secretive and secure facility wasn’t lost on attendees. “Do you think they’ll let us take pictures?” asked Sky Barnhart, a reporter for the Maui Weekly, which is also a Chamber member. We all signed in, then sat on plastic chairs in a small warehouse. On one wall was a green sign saying, “This plant has worked 202 days without a lost time accident.” Two freezers in back were marked with signs saying, “Leaf samples and blue ice only.” Officials said 150 people signed up, but I counted about 75 attending. Officials then showed a 15-minute PowerPoint Presentation on the company history. They talked about the old days, when Monsanto was just a chemical company selling the herbicide glyphosate under the trade name Roundup—so much so that today it’s the most popular plant-killer in the world. “The billionth acre of biotechnology was planted this spring,” said Paul Koehler, who acted as our guide. He and the other Monsanto officials never used the words “genetic” or “GMO.” They always referred to their plants as “biotech.” They also used a few novel, and in some cases misleading, arguments for genetically modifying plants. “One thousand people per hour die of hunger,” said Koehler, who showed slides sourced to the United Nations illustrating tremendous population growth. The implication was obvious: GMOs are a cheap way to feed huge numbers of poor people, and Monsanto is only too happy to perform this humanitarian service. Though none of the guides said so, the 1,000 people statistic comes from a GMO booster named Clive James, who founded the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications (ISAAA) in 1991. Critics like the Institute of Development Studies, based in Sussex in the United Kingdom, have said ISAAA’s figures on a whole range of GMO-related topics are beyond reality—as much as “20 times higher even

is not increase has since slowed, but today hovers around a billion acres. That land has produced more than a trillion meals since 1996. Monsanto Hawai’i first began farming the Kihei land in 1996, which is about when GMOs first became commercially available. In that time, they’ve already outgrown a huge shed housing all the usual “mechanical devices” used in farming. Koehler said they’re going to double its size. The Monsanto operation is a farm like any other farm, though much smaller and set up to produce seeds rather than food. It’s got 12-bin driers filled with corn, a big propane tank and a few pink/purple hydrants that spout water that’s not quite potable. As we drove up the dirt road into the farm, we passed kiawe trees, grasses and rocks. Lots of rocks. “Rock picking is a never ending task,” Koehler said. The fields themselves are pretty small. Most hold corn, which grow within a box of sorghum, planted a couple feet deep around the perimeter, to act as a buffer against wind, dust and insects. There are birds all over—lots of quail and a few cardinals. As we headed up a shallow hill, splattering the already filthy sorghum with even more dust, we passed a county million-gallon water tank. Koehler said the Monsanto operation drew up to 200,000 gallons a day out of it. While we were parked in the field during the shootbagging demonstration, the guides described a couple genes they put in the corn. The first protects it against the Roundup herbicide—these are known as HT crops—and the other is the Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) crop which resists the corn bore insect. “We want the right gene or event in a plant,” said Koehler. “If it’s supposed to have Roundup, we don’t want Bt. It’s like going into Koho’s and getting a ham-

burger, French fries, but no tomatoes.” Koehler said that Monsanto’s workers conduct “gene checking” on every plant in the field. That requires them to check an astonishing 2.5 million plants every year. On our way back to the offices, Koehler talked about how a huge wave recently hit a barge carrying a “big sprayer” bound for Maui. Koehler said the wave “completely doused” the sprayer, severely damaging it.

The Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) is a non-profit organization founded in 1969. It boasts a membership of over 100,000 scientists and citizens. Of its 15 board members, 12 are professors or emeritus professors at universities like Cornell, Columbia, Harvard, Duke and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The group says it “does not support or oppose genetic engineering per se” but regularly puts out reports and papers questioning many of the basic claims put out by GMO advocates and corporations. I was thinking about them as my tour group sat in a small, air-conditioned room after our romp through the corn fields. We were there to hear from Harvey Glick, Monsanto’s Director of Scientific Affairs, who flew in from the company’s St. Louis headquarters. Glick speaks often to groups and the press about the science backing Monsanto’s work. He told us he’s spent almost 30 years in ag research and was in Canada when the very first biotech crop—Canola—was planted. Glick fired up another PowerPoint Presentation, this time with 10 slides labeled “Plant Biotechnology” and “Solid Record of Safety,” among others. Many of them were sourced to the Council for Biotechnology Information (CBI). Whereas BIO handles GMO industry lobbying in Washington, CBI takes care of public relations. “The Council for Biotechnolgy Information communicates science-based information about the benefits and safety of agricultural and food biotechnology,” states the organization’s website www.whybiotech.com. “[CBI] is committed to bringing you the facts about these exciting new developments—complete with footnotes and hyperlinks to scientific research and other information. That’s our pledge to be a credible source of information about plant biotechnology.”

potential risks posed by certain aspects of biotechnology.” Those risks, which are seconded by groups like the UCS, include:

•Transferring toxins from one organism to another •Accidentally developing new toxins •Transferring allergenic compounds from one species to another Creating hyper-aggressive weeds Loss of biodiversity

• •

One tour attendee asked Glick about cross-pollination. Glick said it’s not a problem in the U.S. and wouldn’t happen between different species, though he did admit that, “corn and corn will exchange pollen.” Glick was half right—corn and corn will exchange pollen. But genetically modified DNA has long infiltrated traditional plant varieties. In 2004, the Union of Concerned Scientists put out a report entitled Gone to Seed. Its conclusion was unambiguous: “Seeds of traditional varieties of corn, soybeans, and canola are pervasively contaminated with low levels of DNA sequences derived from transgenic varieties.” Blaming the contamination on “generally porous seed production and distribution systems,” the UCS said the contamination threatens organic agriculture everywhere and “amounts to a huge wager on our ability to understand a complicated technology that manipulates life at the most elemental level.” Another slide Glick presented said genetically modified foods “bring societal benefits.” Glick added that “50 million pounds of pesticides” are not sprayed each year because of GMOs like the Bt corn produced by his company. “We’re very proud of this,” Glick said. “These are some tremendous environmental benefits.” Once again, Glick was overstating his case—pushing one fact at the expense of a bunch of other, much worse facts. In October 2004, the UCS produced “Technical Paper Number 7,” entitled Genetically Engineered Crops and Pesticide Use in the United States: The First Nine Years. Its findings were startling. “GE [Genetically engineered] corn, soybeans and cotton have led to a 122 million pound increase in pes-

evidence of absence of harm.” Eight biotech organizations—including Monsanto and BIO—pay CBI to produce “science-based,” proGMO literature and studies. In effect then, whenever Monsanto quotes CBI, it’s quoting itself. Before anyone could ask about the safety of GMOs, Glick brought the matter up. “We have a lot of evidence about the safety of these crops,” he said. “I think it’s useful to have the discussion. Food is a very emotional subject.” Then Glick showed a slide quoting the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO): “…In those countries where transgenic crops have been grown, there have been no verifiable reports of… health or environmental harm.” While true, such statements are terribly misleading. In 2003, a major meta-study commissioned by the UK government reviewed more than 600 GMO papers and concluded that while genetically engineered food posed “very low” risk to human health, there simply wasn’t enough evidence to close the book on safety. In fact, the panel of 25 that wrote the report concluded that, “Absence of evidence of harm is not evidence of absence of harm.” And the FAO is hardly in the business of boosting GMOs. In its official Statement on Biotechnology, the UN agency states that it’s “aware of the concern about the

ticide use since 1996,” the report asserted. “While Bt crops have reduced insecticide use by about 15.6 million pounds over this period, HT crops [like Monsanto’s “Roundup Ready” corn that’s herbicide-tolerant] have increased herbicide use 138 million pounds.” The report concluded that, “overall pesticide use has risen about 4.1 percent on acres” growing GMOs. After all, ecological balances are always tenuous. Tweaking resistance in one part of the food chain can cause drastic results across the board. “Weed scientists have warned for about a decade that heavy reliance on HT crops would trigger changes in weed communities and resistance, in turn forcing farmers to apply additional herbicides and/or increase herbicide rates of application,” stated the report. “Reliance on a single herbicide, glyphosate [Roundup], as the primary method for managing weeds on millions of acres planted to HT varieties remains the primary factor that that has led to the need to apply more herbicides per acre to achieve the same level of weed control… For the foreseeable future, HT crops will increase pesticide use more than Bt transgenic crops reduce it.” Put another way, Monsanto will continue to cash in selling Roundup as well as seeds immune to Roundup. I didn’t hear that point made during the farm tour, but I also didn’t expect to. MTW

A History of Bar Food The evolution of what you eat when you drink Man first roamed the earth 50,000 years ago. It took him about 40,000 years after that to settle down, start painting his cave and recognizing Fido as his loyal companion. However, it hardly took any time for him to begin producing alcohol for consumption. And a mere 5,000 years later, man brewed beer. Soon taverns developed in Mesopotamia. Not long after people started eating popcorn. And then came the rules: daily beer rations were doled out according to social standing. This protected consumers from innkeepers’ price gouging. Drinking was encouraged for good health. But man could not live by drinking alone. By the fifth century, there were pretzels.

reduce crime and moral corruption, it was largely a failure. In fact, its disastrous results— increased alcohol consumption, organized crime, J. Edgar Hoover—sent politicians back to the bar. The Prohibition ended in 1933 and two years later, people started drinking canned beer. And in 1964, the ultimate bar food staple emerged in Buffalo, New York. That would be chicken wings.

Walk into most urban bars today and you will find bowls of nuts, pretzels, popcorn, potato chips, wasabi peas or pickled mango deliberately placed between drinkers. The food is usually carb-ed to absorb alcohol while salty enough to encourage more drinking. On Maui, the few kitchen-less bars make do with bags of potato chips, spiced almonds or an occasional oyster shooter. But one neighborhood pub in particular features a full menu of acceptable bar snacks that fulfill the starchy/salty quotient you seem to crave when you’re drinking, and yet won’t ache the belly with an excess of grease. For almost a decade, the staff at Kahale’s has been pouring drinks with one hand and working The Autofry with the other. No muss, no fuss, they say. No bells to contend with or cranky chefs to “kiss your grits.” It’s just a fully

enclosed, 350-degree deep-fryer that cooks frozen foods in two to seven minutes. “It’s got the best personality of any cook I’ve worked with,” said one bartender. “Every once in a while, a couple of wings fall on the floor but other than that, it’s real handy.” Kahale’s bar menu prices range from fries going for $2.50 a basket to calamari rings priced at $6.50. They also have chicken egg rolls, Buffalo wings, jalapeno poppers, onion rings, chicken/shrimp/or fish and chips and chicken nuggets. The taquitos especially seemed to be the hit with one regular. “They’re perfectly cooked and very cornmealy,” she said. “They make you want to do tequila shots. But maybe that’s the hot sauce.” Fifty thousand years in the making, and worth every minute. MTW

Breweries and ale houses flourished. By the 15th century, beer became a sole source of hydration, since cholera and the plague were having their way with local drinking water sources. That meant there were a lot of people getting really drunk. Not even the invention of French fries in the 18th century could stop the onslaught of pub restrictions that followed. Licensing became more rigid. They strictly enforced hours of operations. Obviously, society needed stronger measures to alleviate the people’s increasing inebriation. Somebody had to save beer from itself. In 1860, respite came with the arrival of fish and chips. It was good, heavy food, and for a while it seemed to work. But by 1919, Prohibition took effect.

EMPLOYEE OF THE

WEEK BY GABRIELLE POCCIA

Terry Jones Bartender/server at SeaWatch in Wailea The role of the bartender or server is like the emcee at a party. When people go out and have food and drinks then they’re in a festive mood, and the person serving them is coordinator of that mood. As a good server you must be able to read a person and best deliver what they want, when they want it. Sometimes people want to hear your joke and other times they want quick, thorough service. I enjoy playing both roles. It is easy to work at the SeaWatch because everything is in place and everyone here loves what they do. The Golden Emerald Golf Club is a beautiful place. From the second the guests step out of their car there is a sense of relaxation and ease. It makes serving the guests and meeting their expectations that much easier. My wife and I have just moved back to the island after being gone for about five years. We had lived in Honokowai before and wanted to try something new so I looked for jobs on the south side. A good friend of mine, who knows a lot about the different restaurants on Maui, suggested that I talk to the manager of SeaWatch. I haven’t been working here for very long but the place is very unique and I enjoy that. There is a really good group of people working at the SeaWatch. There is a really strong sense of teamwork and everyone tends to pull together to make the dining experience great for the guest. Like any job, if you cannot rely on the guy next to you, you are going to fail. We have a pretty good mix of locals and tourists who visit the SeaWatch. I would like to see more people who live on the island come in, though. We live in a tourist economy and when people who are visiting ask the locals “Where do you eat?” it would be good to have our name suggested. It also makes the atmosphere more pleasant when people come back to treat themselves, because if you are working on the island you are working hard. I would also like to see some of the people I’ve lost touch with sitting at my bar. MTW

Enrique Chagoya Thursday (tonight!), 7 p.m. at the Hui No’eau in Makawao [ART] Currently a Professor of Art at Stanford University, Enrique Chagoya began his unique monotype printing in a well-known San Francisco Mission studio called Galleria de La Raza. His socially conscious art infuses a lot of pop culture with religious and political iconography, resulting in striking, edgy—and often humorous—images. In Stanford’s online news journal, Stanford Today, Diane Manuel writes, “Superman and Olive Oyl are juxtaposed with Aztec gods and symbols of Catholic sacraments in many of Chagoya’s complex paintings. The Governor’s Nightmare, from a 1994 series of acrylic and oil works on handmade Mexican paper, features a gory human sacrifice and a blue-skinned deity seasoning Mickey Mouse with salt and chili peppers. In his 1989 charcoal and pastel study of struggle and oppression, Thesis/Antithesis, a hand and two bare feet attempt to rise from a blood-red sea, only to be quashed by a powerful gloved fist and well-heeled foot.” This free slide lecture is a chance for you to see the inspirational work Chagoya’s been doing as a guest resident at the Hui.

ThIS WEEK’S PICKS by Samantha Campos

Key Slackers No Artist Left Behind Thursday, 1 p.m. at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center’s gallery meeting room [COMMUNITY MEETING] It was our esteemed President George W. Bush who first asked the seminal question on education—“Is our children learning?” The answer, at least in regards to children who didn’t end up becoming president, is a qualified but fairly certain “yes.” With Bush’s No Child Left Behind “reforms”—rate every school in America on the basis of standardized test performance then cut off those schools who do poorly—no one’s quite sure anymore. Now that schools everywhere are scrambling for resources and money, parents are beginning to ask whether their children’s arts programs are going to get the ax. Hence this meeting, organized by the advocacy group Kauleo: Maui Partners for Arts Education. It’s free and open to anyone concerned that in the rush to jack up test scores, schools will sacrifice creative and thoughtful endeavors like art and music. For more information, call 242-2787, ext. 234. [ANTHONY PIGNATARO]

[MUSIC] The music of the Hawaiian slack key guitar (Ki Ho’alu) has helped tell the stories of people’s past and present lives throughout the islands for many years. Ki Ho’alu means “loosen the keys” in the Hawaiian language, referring to the unique name for the finger-picked style called “slacking.” Early on, slack key guitar was played by the paniolos, or Hawaiian cowboys, when they came home from work or at family gatherings. This tradition continues on the Big Island and Maui. The oceans, volcanoes, waterfalls and tropical forests of Hawaii inspire the sweet and soulful sound that is slack key guitar. Since the 1960s, Hawaiian slack key guitar has developed into a layered art form, both in solo and group format.

Acoustic Mana’o Sunday, 2-5 p.m. at Casanova [MUSIC] Call me paranoid, but does anyone else find all the massive corporate buyouts of private media companies by a handful of big name broadcasters a tad Orwellian? Radio and TV have turned into a soggy, soulless bore in order to conform to record companies and public trends. And yet, people spend hours hypnotized by this drivel. Creepy. But here’s something I didn’t know about: Mana’o Radio. It’s a little project put together in a home in Wailuku—a non-commercial, listener supported radio station, dedicated to putting some heart back into the industry. They help to educate the community by showcasing local and ethnic music that isn’t played alongside the droning sounds that usually get airtime. And they’re putting on an acoustic showcase this weekend, featuring Victoria Barrett, a sultry musician with a laidback, coffee house feel that should be perfect for a Sunday afternoon. Come do your part to stop Big Brother. Damn the man! [REESE QUICK]

DAY

Poetry Slammin’ Sunday, 7 p.m. at Maui Booksellers, Wailuku [SPOKEN WORD] Are you actually going to be allowed to physically slam poets? No. Sorry. I already called and asked. What’s really happening is poets and spoken word artists are being invited to present and perform original works of three minutes or less in any style and on any theme in a competition (except hate speeches). No music, props or costumes allowed. And what, pray tell, happens if one goes over the three minute limit? They get the hook! Well, no. But, they do lose points (after the 10-second grace period). That’s bad, because the top performer of the eve walks with $100!! And for every 10 seconds you go over, you lose 1/2 a point. Five people will be picked at random to judge the event. So why is it called “Poetry Slammin’,” if there is no slammin’ going on? Dave and Chela (the lovely folks in charge of this event) would eventually like to form a team to compete at the National Poetry Slam so they’ve followed those rules for this competition. The name of the competition is similar as well. It’s just another term for “poetry competition.” It’s going be a good time. But leave the helmets and pads home for this one. Free to enter. For info, call 244-9091. [HEIDI KING]

A Parrot Philosophy Wednesday, 5 & 7:30 p.m. at the Castle Theater [FILM] The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill is a true story of a man born and raised in Washington State, whose travels eventually took him to San Francisco. He attempted to make it there as a poet/singer/songwriter. Unfortunately, his attempt was in vain. His name is Mark Bittner. After his original plan failed, he sought “enlightenment” on the streets for 14 years. During this time he discovered a flock of wild parrots with which he felt a connection. Seattle Times claims it’s a “special, strangely soothing movie experience that wonderfully celebrates the intricate diversity of life on Earth and the profound emotional bond that can exist between man and beast.” Unrated. 88 minutes.

FILMCRITIQUE

BY COLE SMITHEY

Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered TV movie spins off With Bewitched, Nicole Kidman’s career slips down yet another rung after her recent cinematic mishaps with The Stepford Wives and Birth. Writer/director Nora Ephron (You’ve Got Mail) knits together a misshapen movie using anomalous strands of narrative thread. With Sol Saks’ well-loved television series as their stepping off point, Ephron and coscripter Delia Ephron overreach with a convoluted TV-show-within-a-movie structure that never takes flight.

Bewitched

★★★★★ Rated PG-13/100 mins.

Jack Wyatt (Will Ferrell) is an egodriven movie star reduced to doing sitcom television after a box office flop and a painful divorce. In an effort to avoid

being overshadowed by his new Bewitched TV show co-star, Jack insists on using an unknown modest actress named Isabel Bigelow (Kidman) who is secretly a real-life witch. Ferrell keeps his character’s comedic energy high in spite of his nonexistent chemistry with Kidman whose character comes off as conflict-ridden to a fault. Kidman’s knack for wrinkling her nose just like her predecessor Elizabeth Montgomery is about as far as her acting ability goes toward striking the delicate comic balance that Montgomery perfected on the popular TV series. Ephron’s misjudged attempt at directly addressing the issue of Montgomery’s alleclipsing charisma sets off alarm bells early in the movie when Jack’s agent Richie (Jason Schwartzman) works to avoid the “Darrin syndrome” for his client. The condition refers to the recasting of the actor playing Samantha’s husband in the ‘60s original TV show whose substitution went unnoticed by many of the show’s

audience. The problem here is that Kidman is not a natural comic actress and lacks the intentionality and quick reflex line delivery necessary to zing punch lines into audience funny bones. Bewitched drags and narrative potholes appear as Jack discovers that his ego is no match for the time-tripping magic that Isabel weaves under the watchful eye of her womanizing warlock father Nigel (well played by Michael Caine). But other secondary characters are far less fortunate. Steve Carell (The Daily Show) completely misses the mark as Isabel’s needling uncle Arthur, with an overtly affected performance meant to expound on Paul Lynde’s loopy characterization from the original TV show. The comic set pieces come in fits and starts that induce slight giggles rather than all-out laughs as the superficial romance between Jack and Isabel proves to be more of a contest between two little Hitlers with proclivities for breaking character.

Yeah, Nicole Kidman is hot!

FILM

Bewitched never strikes a consistent comic tone or rhythm as characters play a game of push-me-pull-me in the midst of narrative atmospheric shifts that constantly derail the continuity of the story. Ferrell’s character is at once attracted to and repulsed by Isabel whose powers promise to emasculate his already insecure personality. For her part, Isabel plays up the innocent and naïve aspects of her character in a way that rings false considering the phenomenal powers she possesses. Isabel’s attraction to Jack is far less recognizable than his attention to her, which stems from his belief that he can exploit her to advance his career. Jack represents an infantile personification of the modern male, while Isabel represents an underdeveloped adult female in desperate need of outside coaching in order to navigate her way through life. In any case, the comedic substance here is secondhand. And there isn’t much magic in that. MTW


SHOWTIMES

MOVIECAPSULES Crowe back in some Gladiator-type action in this over two-hour long flick. Scary fact: Ben Affleck was going to play the role of Braddock back in 2000, let’s all breathe a sign of relief that he didn’t!

MAUI FILM FESTIVAL’S CANDLELIGHT CINEMA Wednesday June 29 THE WILD PARROTS OF TELEGRAPH HILL

THE HONEYMOONERS - (PG13) - Comedy - Ralph Kramden and his wife Alice struggle with money despite Ralph’s attempts at get-rich-quick schemes and a motivational speaker tape series. They have some money saved up, so they decide they want to buy a Brooklyn duplex with their best friends, Ed and Trixie. But whoops, Ralph manages to lose their saved-up money when he mixes it up with another one of his money-making schemes. Why couldn’t he have left the money alone!? Now he’s lost their money and Alice as well. Ralph is going to fight hard to get his marriage and money back. Hmm... maybe sell more tapes?

Hollywood pools. Their crazy antics allowed skateboarding to gain respect and become an international sport. Some drama takes place when the success the guys get from skateboarding makes friendships hard to keep because everyone is worried about himself.

New This Week

MADAGASCAR - (PG) - Comedy, Kids/Family and Animation - Ah! Finally a movie with stars we can respect: a lion, a zebra, a giraffe and a pregnant hippo (voiced by Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer and Jada Pinkett-Smith, respectively). See, the animals were all “residents” of the zoo but when one of them disappears, the other three go looking for him and all four end up getting captured, put in boxes and shipped back to Africa. Only, something happens with the ship and the four wash up on the shores of Madagascar, having to fend for themselves after being “cared for” by humans all their lives. Yeah, I know, it sounds fishy to me, too, but that’s just half of it!

BEWITCHED - (PG13) - Comedy, Romance and Fantasy - Instead of simply making the 1970s TV sitcom Bewitched into a movie, filmmaker Nora Ephron made a movie about making a the 1970s TV sitcom Bewitched into a movie. Except the actress they get to reprise Elizabeth Montgomery’s Samantha (Nicole Kidman) is actually a witch! Not Nicole Kidman—the actress portrayed by Kidman. That’s hot! Maybe. Also stars Will Farrell as the guy who plays the Darrin role. See Film Critique, p. 24.

MR. & MRS SMITH - (PG13) - Action/Adventure, Romance, Thriller - Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie star in this movie that brings domestic abuse to the big screen. Secret assassins they are and now their next targets are each other! Mr. and Mrs. Smith chase each other around with guns, shout out some cheesy lines and then fire off another round. If they loved each other they could just call it quits but this is one messed up case of “I do.” People will go to this movie to see the hotness of Angelina and Brad or maybe for some reassurance in their marriage?

HERBIE: FULLY LOADED - (G) - Comedy “Fully Loaded?” That’s what I’ll have to be in order to watch this flick. A comedy/action/adventure/kids/family/Walt Disney movie rated G (no way!), this movie stars Lindsay Lohan, Justin Long, Michael Keaton, Matt Dillon, Brecklen Meyer, Cheryl Hines, Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson. That’s a pretty solid line-up. I loved Justin Long in Dodgeball and Michael Keaton is one of my all time faves. But, honestly, one-anda-half hours of Lindsay Lohan being all cute, driving a self-minded Volkswagon bug in Nascar is more than l can stomach. I’m sure children will enjoy it. But for those of us who saw the original, what’s the point?

MONSTER IN-LAW - (PG13) - Romantic Comedy Okay, hasn’t this story been told already? Charlie Cantilini (Jennifer Lopez) has finally met the man of her dreams (geez, J-Lo, another one??), Dr. Kevin Fields (Michael Vartan). There's just one problem—his overbearing and controlling mother (Jane Fonda). Also stars the hilariously sassified Wanda Sykes.

5 & 7:30 P.M., CASTLE THEATER The true story of a Bohemian St. Francis and his remarkable relationship with a flock of wild redand-green parrots, featuring Mark Bittner, a dharma bum and former street musician in San Francisco, who falls in with the flock as he searches for meaning in his life and is for a long time unaware that the wild parrots will bring him everything he needs. Unrated. 88 min

SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS (PG) - Drama - Pants that travel? A sisterhood of pants? I think girls will even be embarrassed to go see a movie with such a lame title. But there you have it; the traveling pants and these pants sure get around! Four friends are out shopping when they find a pair of pants that fit all of them perfectly. Hmmm. Then they decide these pants must be magic, so they buy them and send them to each friend for one week over summer as a way to stay in touch. The movie has a good cast (Amber Tamblyn and Alexis Bledel) and a promising storyline, so if you can get over the title—and I’m sure your boyfriend/husband won’t, so don’t bother—it might be worth seeing.

GEORGE A. ROMERO'S LAND OF THE DEAD - (R) - Action/Adventure and Suspense/Horror. An uprising of the dead in the barren wasteland surrounding a tenuously enclosed civilization? Oh, sure. But really, this is just a classic tale of greed, corruption, zombies and really, really bad decisions. Much like what went on in Ohio last September. Stars Dennis Hopper, Asia Argento and John Leguizamo.

STAR WARS: EPISODE III – REVENGE OF THE SITH - (PG-13) - Action/Adventure, Science Fiction/Fantasy - The furry and lovable Chewbacca makes his anticipated return to the big screen in the last installment (really!) of the Star Wars trilogy. Get ready to witness the transformation of young Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) into the evil and deep-voiced man in black, Darth Vader (because, let’s face it, without the voice he would not be cool). The rest of the gang is ready for some action as well, including the bearded Obi-Wan Kenobi (sexy Scottish Ewan McGregor, mmmmm), the Senator Padme Amidala and her insane hair (Natalie Portman) and best of all, Yoda! People go crazy for that little green guy, agreed?… Too bad we all know how this trilogy ends.

Now Showing ADVENTURES OF SHARK BOY AND LAVA GIRL IN 3D - (PG) - Action/Adventure, Kids/Family - Here comes another flashy kids flick from the same director responsible for the Spy Kids series. This is about 10-year-old Max who is an imaginative boy, forced to spend a summer alone with only his superhero friends, Shark Boy and Lava Girl. When his crazy summer is over he tells his family and friends all about these two characters but no one believes him. But then the heroes emerge out of space and take little Max along on a mission to save life on their weird planet. And hey, it’s in 3D! BATMAN BEGINS - (PG13) - Action/Adventure, Crime/Gangster - It’s about time a movie explains the emergence of the Dark Knight into a do-gooder for Gotham City! After his parents are murdered, Bruce Wayne fights injustice in the world, returning to Gotham city as Batman. He uses his strength and intelligence to fight off bad guys. Christian Bale plays Batman in yet another installment but this time they got Batman right, including his infamous skintight leather suit. Val Kilmer was a sure-miss as Batman, and George Clooney was too Chanel-looking for the role of this tough, dark hero. CINDERELLA MAN - (PG13) - Drama - Set in New York during the Great Depression era, this tells the true story of heavyweight champion James Braddock’s (Russell Crowe) rise to stardom. There aren’t any glass slippers or magic pumpkins in this film but there’s a lot of drama, as Braddock struggles to overcome poverty and provide for his wife (Renee Zellweger) through boxing. Directed by Ron Howard, it’s nice to see

Mama’s got a brand new bag! I do believe Sharon Jones is James Brown’s Soul Sister. With funky songs like “How Do I Let a Good Man Down?” “Fish In My Dish” and “How Long Do I Have To Wait?” this soul sister is telling it like it is. And she’s backed by a soulful eight-piece band that cuts it up as good as the JB’s (James Brown’s back up band). The ultimate duet “Stranded In Your Love” with Lee Fields about a woman tired of her man’s lies, his begging to come back—so typical! But yeah, this album will definitely get you through whatever blues that come your way. And it’ll keep you funkin’. —2005 Daptone Records [KIMBERLY L. WELCH]

“THE CODE IS RED…LONG LIVE THE CODE”

Important!

Okay. Not many people can say this, but we at the DK Levin Company actually ENJOY doing tax returns.

Very classy—an instant classic. The man has the lyrics, the songs (the few weak tracks are more than compensated for by the greatness of the majority), the chops and immaculate production skills—every handclap in exactly the right place. Not even Carlos Santana, Master of Guitar-Noodling Disaster, can ruin this mind-expanding record, although he does try pretty hard on track four. The flat, throwaway vocal delivery might irritate at first, but by the second listen you’re in love, can’t remember why it ever bothered you. Rather than more animated vocal emoting, this is the only way to adequately deliver lyrics this meaningful without rendering them corny. So what if Cope’s tunes are cropping up in car commercials and on silly TV shows— good for him (and for us—less Sting can only be a good thing.) Quit chanting, throw away your TV, stop running after that fool who dumped you last week and buy this record. It’ll take care of you; it’ll stick around—although I can’t promise it won’t ever make you cry.

Napalm Death return to wreak havoc on the music industry with The Code is Red…Long Live the Code. Barney’s voice is in supreme condition; after years of gargling razor blades and broken glass, he sounds as if he is a rabid raccoon trapped in a burlap sack, screaming revenge and condemnation at the world. The burly guitarist Mitch Harris plays with a technical precision—leaving wannabes in the dust, as the primary inventor of this genre of music. The bassist, the imitable Shane Embury, thunders his fourstring rumble machine mimicking the Norse God Thor. If there is a faster right foot, left foot combination than Danny Herrera’s double bass pedal work, I would suggest that they look for a battery pack on his back, because he is inhuman! Thoughtfully, they have also included Jamie Hatebreed, Jello Biafra and Jeff Walker from Carcass to play with the entrails and body parts, making this an absolutely brutal record. —2005 Century Media Records [STEPHEN R.

Shall We Swing? Dancing along with Michelle Suber and Warren d’Aquin In the movie Shall We Dance, Richard Gere plays a middle aged man who hits a midlife crisis, signs up for lessons from Miss Mitzi’s dance studio, trips a few times, improves, then falls back in love with his wife. Consider it this generation’s Dirty Dancing and Flashdance. This Sunday, Dr. Michelle Suber and Warren d’Aquin will bring their Big Island version of Miss Mitzi’s dance studio to Maui. Except they’ll be teaching “Let’s Swing: Introduction to West Coast Swing” instead of ballroom dancing. Suber says West Coast Swing is a smooth, sophisticated style sometimes confused with other forms of Swing Dancing.

Suber was center stage. She took my hand, and right away I realized that she was a better lead than most of the guys I’ve danced with. This Big Island diva had so much presence the dance floor quickly cleared. “No doubt you have a dance background!” I told her afterwards. Little did I know that this background dated back to age three. “I started with tap, ballet and jazz, and was a competitive gymnast through my childhood and young adulthood,” Suber said. During her second year of medical school in Portland, Oregon, she taught basic ballroom dancing, Fox Trot, Waltz, Cha Cha, Tango, Rumba and Swing. Suber moved to Waimea in 1998 to pursue her practice as a naturopathic doctor. At that time she noticed that there were very few people doing any dancing in her area. “I realized if I wanted to have anyone to dance with I better get on the stick and start dancing!” she said. Today she teaches more than 300 students a year. I asked Suber if she saw any correlation between her work as a naturopathic doctor and a dance instructor. “Absolutely,” she said. “There’s the pleasure, the civility, the motion, the continuous learning and that wonderful, playful connec-

tion we get to experience with our dance partners and the music. It is one of the most fun ways to stay healthy I’ve found.” By contrast, her dance partner has only been dancing for four years. “[D’Aquin] started dancing when he ran into some people on the Big Island doing West Coast Swing,” Suber said. “He thought it looked really fun and took it on like a star. Since then, he has become an excellent dancer and teacher. He’s a natural.” Suber and d’Aquin are both certified by the Golden State Dance Teachers Association and have completed the Judges Certification Program at the U.S. Open Swing Dancing Championship. On Maui, they will be teaching an introduction to West Coast Swing for beginner and experienced dancers alike. The class will introduce participants to the basic patterns in West Coast Swing, which they can then practice at the dance party following the lesson. “In our classes here on the Big Island, about 75 percent of the people come to class on their own,” Suber said. “We have everybody in the class changing partners throughout the class. In the class, you’ll dance with everyone… Come solo or with a partner, it doesn’t matter.” MTW

“When most people hear Swing Dancing they interpret that to mean Lindy Hop, which looks more similar to East Coast Swing,” she said. “It’s different in that in West Coast Swing, the partner who follows, usually the woman, steps in the same direction as the lead partner in the first count of any pattern. In East Coast Swing, both partners rock away from each other. “It sounds like a technical difference, but it’s actually an important differentiation. And the fact that it’s a slot dance makes it different too. This means that it’s like two people dancing on a diving board instead of going in ovals or circles. It makes the dance much more smooth. The music, too, is more modern.” Enthusiasts can dance West Coast Swing to any form of music in 4/4 time, usually in the range of 85-115 beats per minute. Thirty years ago, West Coast Swing was mainly danced to blues music. “Today it’s become a very modern dance, and appreciates a wide variety of well known, contemporary music like rock and hip hop—in addition to classic swinging blues music,” Suber said. I actually met Suber at my birthday party last November. For most of the evening she was a bit of a mystery guest, laying low on the outskirts. Then, in true Maui style, the party went late and someone broke out a funk CD. We began dancing, and it wasn’t long before

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

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22)

Tossing your nets into the sea is an act of faith. Beyond choosing the right spots to let them loose, you have almost no control over what comes back. You might get some big fish, a desperate drowning dolphin, or a chunk of floating trash. In other words, don’t count on being fed this week; spiritual nourishment is no more likely (or less likely) than a mess for you to clean up, or a lost soul for you to help. The only way to avoid any of this—good or bad—is to keep your nets dry and not try to catch anything at all.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) Throughout your life, you’ve struggled to choose between two potential responses to volatile situations: anger, or magnanimous forgiveness. You’re big enough (personality-wise, if not physically) to throw your weight around effectively, but you’re also big enough (spiritually) to forgive and forget. This week’s conundrum is a toss-up; you could really handle it either way, which is why it’s so hard to decide which approach would be the best. Allow me to help you choose. Instead of considering things just from your perspective, try to see what’s best for the person at the heart of the problem. Would s/he benefit more from discipline or absolution? Now the answer’s obvious, right?

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) Your Sagittarian brethren may have the option of forgiving and forgetting, but you don’t, at least not this week. When someone tries to walk all over you (or even hints that they might want to), nip that shit in the bud. You’ve got too much power and pride to serve as doormat on any level right now. There are times when you’re required to bend and compromise. This, however, isn’t one of them. You’re likely to lose it should a footprint mar the back of your shirt. And we know what happens when you snap: explosions, big ones. Relationship-leveling TNT. Avoid that kind of mess by standing straight and tall and declaring to all and sundry: You can’t walk here. Go around.

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) What am I supposed to do with you? You’ve developed a horribly annoying habit of ignoring advice lately (and not just mine). You know best, huh? Well, maybe that’s true and maybe it’s not. Only time will tell whether your way is really better than the highway. So you’re not prepared to gamble on anything other than your own hunches. Fine. I may not know your best bet as well as you do, but I do know this: If you continue to ask for counsel and then not heed it, some of those whose words you spurn won’t bother to offer them (or anything) next time around.

PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) You Fish wear many hats comfortably. Problem is, you’ve only got one head, and donning more than two or three at a time becomes embarrassing and unwieldy. If only you had more than one head. This week, you do, sort of: a handful of willing and at least partially able assistants who are ready to try on any hat you hand them. Sure, none of them is likely to do as good a job as you would on your best day. But they’ll probably do better than you would if you had to tackle all their tasks at once. Delegate. Everyone will do their best. The result won’t be perfect, or all you hoped for, but it’ll still be better than you expected.

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Just remember that old saw: the bigger they come, the harder they fall. It’s supposed to give you courage when you’re up against that implacable fat foe once again this week. His metaphorical girth is daunting and scary, but you’re spiritually lean, and more than a match for his waddling might. Perhaps this all sounds a bit too epic to describe what you’re actually facing and going through—possibly a niggling dispute with your landlord or an ongoing quarrel with a coworker—but it might help to think of it as something legendary. Whip out your slingshot, David. Goliath is going down.

COVER STORY

Let someone else drive the car—literally and figuratively. This should be easy for you; you’re no control freak. Just relax, close your eyes and allow someone to steer. That’s the easy part. Of course, the hard part is deciding just who that someone ought to be. Choose well; your next road trip is apt to be quite a long one. Don’t select the exciting and handsome sprinter who’s first on your list, despite the temptation. Instead pick the guy or gal who’s good for the long haul, in varied terrain, and who’s more likely to be able to cope with your myriad moods, not just the one you’re in at the moment.

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

Who’s your daddy? Where’s your momma? These are vital questions for you this week; you need to get in touch with whomever embodies these energies in your life at the moment—whether they’re your actual parents or not. It’s important to check in with these sweet sources of authority, wisdom and love every once in a while, especially for you Virgos, who can so easily get caught up in the bustle of life and forget what actually matters. You suck at reminding yourself about that important shit when you’re this busy (which is almost always), so these guys have their work cut out for them. Luckily, they know it. Let them do their job. All you’ve got to do is show up, and listen.

I sleep better during a storm. The rumble of thunder and the slapping stutter of a hard rain makes me feel cozy and safe in my warm, dry bed. I’m lulled and comforted by all that ferocity just outside my window. Sometimes, when things are quiet, it’s perversely difficult to find that kind of serenity. That’s your problem this week. The tranquility that surrounds you only makes your most unpleasant thoughts louder by contrast. Not that you ought to endeavor to drown them out completely. However, immersing yourself in a bit more noise and activity, so they have to fight to be heard, may give you some perspective on how important (or not) they actually are.

It never fails. Your birthday swings around, and for some perverse reason everyone chooses this time of year to dump on you. Luckily, what they’re dishing out now is dramatically different from what you’ve received in years past. The annual Bitchfest is hereby redubbed a Lovefest. Prepare to be showered with affection, praise, respect and gifts. Bask in it, baby. Don’t let waking up on the wrong side of the bed, or the one or two sour notes in the mix, ruin things for you. This is potentially as sweet as things get, so make sure you enjoy it.

SIGNLANGUAGE

TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) How many doctors actually give a shit about their patients? Yeah, I’m sure they care on some level—but how many care enough to offer their help to people regardless of ability to pay? Not many. No one ought to work for free all the time; that’s not what I’m suggesting. But not doing anything without money in the hand? That’s fucked. Consider your own motivations. Naturally, some of them need to revolve around getting your bills paid—but if all of them do, something’s seriously wrong. That can’t feel good, either. This week, if your attitude needs fixing, attend to it, please.

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Stop obsessing about freedom. It’s great on many levels, but it’s not always what it’s cracked up to be. It might not even be necessarily what you want and need right now. You’re pulling a the-grass-is-greener-where-I’m-not head trip, all the while not noticing the emerald-hued shades covering your eyes. Of course it looks verdant and promising over there. Take off the filters and walk over, and you’ll find that it’s as brown and crab-grass covered as your own lawn. By then, though, it’d be too late—walking away from this kind of thing is rarely reversible. Consider sticking around. Spread some new seed and fertilizer; if you still think your neighbor’s lot is better in a month, head on over there then.

Maybe I’m not giving it a chance. Maybe I’ve just been in a really bad mood for, like, the past few days. Okay, 20 years. But god, I hate San Diego. I went to another alternative newsweekly conference there last week. There were the requisite seminars and roundtables, the blatant checking-out of breast-level nametags, the squinty-eyed comparisons between competitive markets and, of course, the schmoozing and the open bars. Ahem. But gone were the buffalo heads, countless bottles of whiskey and political candidates in drag (Kinky Friedman, San Antonio AAN Convention 2004). Gone were the gay bars, the Mission taquerias and the endless array of arthouse music every night (San Francisco AAN West 2005). Oh no, for in San Diego, we have replaced all of that with high-priced “California cuisine” bistros, cars-absolutely-no-more-than-a-year-old and multi-million dollar high-rise townhouses full of—god bless ‘em—YUPPIES! Yay! But we did go to Tijuana and lived through the tequila to tell about it. You’ll also be pleased to know that Maui Time now stocks a full line of authentic Mexican Wrestling Masks. All yours with complimentary Chiclets. And I went to my first TJ titty bar. It was cool. We had a private dance from a very cute Latina, wearing—but not for long, ha ha!—a police uniform. Apparently, I dropped the ball when our real life, Live Nude Chica thrust her bare bosoms in my face, much to the disgust of my cohorts. They thought I cowered but really, I was just busy checking out her shoes. It might’ve also been because I had just seen my fair share of naked boobage just a few nights prior. Correct me if I’m wrong, but once you see Sasha ride her skateboard topless down Lower Main in Wailuku, mere stripping policewomen pale in comparison. Anyway, wanting to visit with some of Maui’s more un-yuppiefied folk on Monday, Kim and I went to Kahale’s in Kihei. They were playing mostly really bad love songs from the ‘9os: Whitney Houston, Cher and Celine Dion. But naturally, we knew all the words and begged for more. Then an old acquaintance we’ll call “The Hobbit” came in and bravely decided he could keep up with the likes of us. It was really just so cute. So we took him to Idini’s. We were only slightly worried how our new friend would be received but our neighborhood pub pulled through with friendly vigor. The Hobbit was duly impressed with his Idini initiation. “The last time I was greeted like that was in Dublin,” he said. “The IRA treated me well. They even bombed and burnt a car in my honor.” But poor Kim was encountered by what we would later call a “soul succubus” earlier in the day, which set the tone for the rest of the evening. For her, the music situation did improve, though, with a solid line-up of old-school R&B. When Heatwave’s 1977 hit “Always and Forever” came on, Kim sighed contentedly. “I used to slow dance to this,” she said. Almost as if on cue, the offers poured in for Kim to dance. Then she was sandwiched while trying to smoke a cigarette during Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing.” “You’re in my personal space!” she finally shrieked, with arms extended. Another gentleman who reminded us of Thomas Hayden Church in Sideways asked us if we wanted to take a “smoke break” outside. When I declined, he rebuffed. “Don’t be the rock,” he said. “Be the rolling stone!” After listening to the lyrics of “Money (That’s What I Want)” and “Shop Around”—music from the late 1960s, early ‘70s—I decided this was an era that really knew what the fuck it was talking about. Feeling the breadth of a curmudgeon reprise, I ordered another Glenlivett on the rocks. I encouraged The Hobbit to try. He did and immediately reeled. “I’m hanging out with some hardcore chicks!” Really, just so cute. I also met Greg, a 60-something CPA from British Columbia. We talked about journalism and island living. He told me he’s lived here for 30 years. He was very wise. “Do you know what ‘kama’aina’ means?” he asked me. “It’s when the iron in your blood turns to lead in your ass.”
