Coconut Wireless Human Trafficking Hits Hawaii

T

he debate over immigrant labor in the United States is many things to many people. Lately, the focus has been almost entirely on the impact, real and imagined, of “illegals.” What’s gotten far less play are the poor conditions, substandard wages and outright exploitation awaiting those who come seeking the American Dream—legally. Two cases currently moving through the courts in Honolulu demonstrate why this issue matters to Hawaii. The first involves the Sou brothers, owners of Oahu’s Aloun Farms, who pleaded guilty in January to “conspiring to commit forced labor” and, at press time, were awaiting sentencing. The second involves Mordechai Orian, president of Los Angeles-based Global Horizons, which provided workers to Aloun Farms. “When Global Horizons, Inc. began sixteen years ago, it was the first company to establish a new and improved laborrecruiting, labor-providing business model to meet the temporary and permanent needs of employers worldwide,” reads the “about us” section of Global Horizons’ Web site. Under the auspices of a federal guest-worker program, outfits like Global Horizons recruit foreign laborers and hook them up with jobs—for a price. The workers have to pay back this “recruitment fee” before they can pocket earnings for themselves; it’s sold as a win-win, but often comes closer to indentured servitude. One worker recruited by Global Horizons was a Thai man named “Intajak” (real name withheld) who was the subject of a probing May article in Mother Jones titled “Bound For America.” Intajak was sent to Maui by Global Horizons in 2004 to work the fields for Maui Land & Pineapple. From there, he relates a harrowing story of sleeping in the mud, subsisting on meager rations and escaping through the cane fields, making it to Paia and ultimately boarding a plane bound

for California. At the time, he said he still owed $6,000 to Global Horizons and had no assurances his visa would be renewed. In the same Mother Jones piece, Orian told reporter John Bowe: “When it comes to money, people will do crazy stuff. You cannot stop it and come to blame me.” Four months later, on September 2, Orian—along with four Global Horizons employees and two Thai recruiters—was arrested for “conspiracy to commit forced labor and document servitude,” according to the Honolulu division of the FBI. If convicted, Orian faces up to 70 years in prison. “The indictment alleges that the defendants conspired and devised a scheme

threats of serious economic harm,” reads an FBI release announcing the arrest. “The indictment also alleges that the defendants confined a group of Thai guest workers at Maui Pineapple Farm and demanded an additional fee of $3,750 to keep their jobs with Global Horizons. Those workers who refused to pay the additional fee were sent back home to Thailand with unpaid debts, subjecting them to the high risk of losing their family homes and land.”

“Thedefendants confined a group of Thai guest workers at Maui Pineapple Farm and demanded an additional fee of $3,750 to keep their jobs,” alleges the FBI indictment. “Those workers who refused to pay were sent back home with unpaid debts, subjecting them to the high risk of losing their family homes and land.” to obtain the labor of approximately 400 Thai nationals by enticing them to come to the United States with false promises of lucrative jobs, and then maintaining their labor at farms in Washington and Hawaii through

ambulance program was one of the items on Mayor Tavares’s chopping block. And she took heat for it—from the community, the Council and her election opponents. Flash forward six months and

the Mayor’s office issued a statement touting the release of $672,215 to maintain the program. Of course, even as she took credit, Tavares couldn’t help but throw others under the bus (or helicopter, as it were). “As we examined our budget restraints earlier this year I had hoped that the state Department of Health and Maui Memorial Medical Center could pay for this important service, which is under their jurisdiction,” she said. Political squabbling aside, folks in the county’s rural reaches, particularly on Molokai and Lanai, should be glad the ambulance will continue to fly.

The Answer to Invasive Snake Headache? Headache Relief

I

n a story better suited for MauiTime contributor Chuck Shepherd’s News of the Weird, federal officials are trying to eradicate brown tree snakes in Guam with a painkiller available at every drugstore in the country. Turns out acetaminophen, the active ingredient in Tylenol, is fatal to the invasive reptile, which has wiped out native species in Guam and could wreak similar havoc in Hawaii. And so the U.S. Department of Agriculture is dropping dead mice loaded with the drug onto targeted regions of the U.S. territory; if the campaign is successful, it’ll be employed on a broader scale. Unlike many eradication efforts, this one supposedly won’t harm the surrounding environment. According to a USDA study: “The advantages of using acetaminophen to reduce brown tree snake populations…outweigh the minimal risks to nontarget feral and wildlife species.” ■ To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/1412c

War Without End Why the drawdown in Iraq wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quell Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lust for military conquest

L

ast week, President Obama used an Oval Office speech to boost a policy of perpetual war. Hours later, the New York Times front page offered a credulous gloss for the end of â&#x20AC;&#x153;the seven-year American combat mission in Iraq.â&#x20AC;? The first sentence of the coverage described the speech as saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;that it is now time to turn to pressing problems at home.â&#x20AC;? The story went on to assert that Obama â&#x20AC;&#x153;used the moment to emphasize that he sees his primary job as addressing the weak economy and other domestic issuesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and to make clear that he intends to begin disengaging from the war in Afghanistan next summer.â&#x20AC;? But the speech gave no real indication of a shift in priorities from making war to creating jobs. And the oratory â&#x20AC;&#x153;made clearâ&#x20AC;? only the repetition of vague vows to â&#x20AC;&#x153;beginâ&#x20AC;? disengaging from the Afghanistan war next summer. In fact, top Administration officials have been signaling that only token military withdrawals are apt to occur in mid-2011, and Obama said nothing to the contrary. While now trumpeting the nobility of an Iraq war effort he once disparaged as â&#x20AC;&#x153;dumb,â&#x20AC;? Barack Obama is polishing a halo over the Afghanistan war, which he touts as very smart. In the process, the Oval Office speech declared that every U.S. warâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;no matter how mendacious or horrificâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is worthy of veneration.

now propagating an exculpatoryy view of any and all U.S. war effortsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;as if the immoral can become the magnificent by virtue of patriotic alchemy. A century ago, William Dean Howells wrote: â&#x20AC;&#x153;What a thing it is to have a country that canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be way!â&#x20AC;? wrong, but if it is, is right, anyway!â&#x20AC;? rge During the presidency of George ved W. Bush, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the war on terrorâ&#x20AC;? served arfare as a rationale for establishing warfare ma as a perennial necessity. The Obama d the administration may have shelved phrase, but the basic underlying th rationales are firmly in place. With istan American troop levels in Afghanistan near 100,000, top U.S. officials are ng ramping up rhetoric about â&#x20AC;&#x153;taking the fight toâ&#x20AC;? the evildoers. The day before the Oval Officee speech, presidential spokesman Robert Gibbs talked to reporters ans about â&#x20AC;&#x153;what this drawdown means n to our national security efforts in Afghanistan and Southeast Asia and around the world as we takee the fight to Al Qaeda.â&#x20AC;? The next morning, Obama declared at Fort Bliss: â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of n families are now being touched in Afghanistan. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen casualtiess go t Al up because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re taking the fight to Qaeda and the Taliban and their allies.â&#x20AC;? And, for good measure, Obama added that â&#x20AC;&#x153;now, under the command of Gen. Petraeus, we have the troops who are there in a position to

While now trumpeting the nobility of an Iraq war effort he once disparaged as â&#x20AC;&#x153;dumb,â&#x20AC;? Barack Obama is polishing a halo over the Afghanistan war. Obama closed the speech with a tribute to â&#x20AC;&#x153;an unbroken line of heroesâ&#x20AC;? stretching â&#x20AC;&#x153;from Khe Sanh to Kandaharâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Americans who have fought to see that the lives of our children are better than our own.â&#x20AC;? His reference to the famous U.S. military outpost in South Vietnam was a chilling expression of affinity for another march of folly. With his commitment to war in Afghanistan, President Obama is not only on the wrong side of history. He is also

start taking the fight to the terrorists.â&#x20AC;? If, nine years after 9/11, we are supposed to believe that U.S. forces can now â&#x20AC;&#x153;startâ&#x20AC;? taking the fight to â&#x20AC;&#x153;the terrorists,â&#x20AC;? this is truly war without end. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the idea.

early eight years ago, in November 2002, retired U.S. Army Gen. William Odom appeared on C-SPANâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Washington Journal program and told viewers: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Terrorism is not an enemy. It

cannot be defeated. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tactic. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about as sensible to say we declare war on night attacks and expect weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to win that war. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to win the war on terrorism.â&#x20AC;? With his August 31 speech, Obama became explicit about the relationship between reduced troop levels in Iraq and escalation in Afghanistan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will disrupt, dismantle, and defeat Al Qaeda, while preventing Afghanistan from again serving as a base for terrorists,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And because of d d i Iraq, I bl our drawdown in we are now able to apply the resources necessary to go on offense.â&#x20AC;? This is the approach of endless war. While Obama was declaring that â&#x20AC;&#x153;our most urgent task is to restore our economy and put the millions of Americans who have lost their jobs back to work,â&#x20AC;? I went to the National Priorities Project Web site (costofwar.com) and looked at cost-of-war counters spinning like odometers in manic overdrive. The figures for the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cost of War in Afghanistanâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;already above $329 billionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;are now spinning much faster than the ones for war in Iraq. One day in March 1969, a Nobel Prize-winning biologist spoke at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our government has become preoccupied with death,â&#x20AC;? George Wald said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;with the business of killing and being killed.â&#x20AC;? More than four decades later, how much has really changed? â&#x2013;

Last week, in a letter posted on the Hawaii Christian Coalition (HCC) Web site, state Republican Party Chair Jonah Ka‘auwai wrote that gubernatorial candidate Duke Aiona “will win because the Church has been behind him the entire time operating in the POWER and the AUTHORITY of the NAME OF JESUS!” Added Ka‘auwai: “Neither Mufi Hannemann nor Neil Abercrombie is righteous and a vote for either in the primary or general election is succumbing to fear and advancing unrighteousness!” The letter was eventually removed from the HCC site, but not before it was widely disseminated, ultimately landing Ka‘auwai on MSNBC talking head Keith Olbermann’s “Worst Person in the World” segment. So how did Duke respond?

“While faith is a central part of my life, I’m running for Governor to serve all the people of Hawaii—regardless of their religion. The goal of our grassroots campaign is to connect with every citizen in every community of this great state, and Chairman Ka‘auwai’s personal comments are seen by many as divisive. Our campaign is focused on families, friends and neighbors of all backgrounds, and we’re going to continue to reach out to all the citizens of Hawaii.” Did you spot ’em?

WACHU TALKIN‘ ’BOUT? The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration announced in August that it had contract work for up to 2,100 language specialists to transcribe wiretaps, with immediate needs in the Atlanta field office for 144 Spanish experts, along with 12 for Vietnamese and nine each for Korean, Farsi and “Ebonics.” Ebonics is recognized by some linguists as the “nonstandard” form of English spoken by African-Americans.

TURNABOUT IS FAIR PLAY Every weekend for the last four years, parishioners from the New Beginnings Ministries church in Warsaw, Ohio, have gathered in front of The Fox Hole strip club in nearby Newcastle and tried to shame customers by photographing them and posting their license plate numbers on the Internet, and brandishing hellfirethreatening signs. Recently, however, Fox Hole’s strippers joined the duel, congregating on Sundays in front of New Beginnings, wearing bikinis and “seethrough” shorts, dancing scandalously, squirting each other with jumbo water guns and wielding their own Bible-quoting signs to greet the day’s worshippers.

GONE NATIVE An Indian in the western Brazilian state of Rondonia lives completely isolated from humans—the last survivor of his nevercontacted tribe. However, the government has taken the unprecedented step of protecting 31 square miles of his habitat, monitored against trespass by technology including heat-sensitive flyovers—even though developers point out that 31 square miles of farming could produce food for many Brazilians. The man was spotted 15 years ago, appearing to be about 30 years old (and leaving one of the spotters with an arrow in the chest), but has left only clues since then, and three years ago, the government stopped looking for him.

MAKING A STATEMENT Wisconsin law permits independent candidates five-word statements to accompany their names on the ballot, to signal voters just as the words “Republican” and “Democrat” are signals, but Milwaukee Assembly candidate Ieshuh Griffin was ruled in July to have gone too far with her statement, “NOT the ‘whiteman’s bitch’” (her capitalization and punctuation). Griffin said the decision

baffled her since “everyone” she spoke with understood exactly what she meant.

AYE, NAY OR BELCH Mark Reckless, elected to the British House of Commons only two months earlier, apologized in July for failing to vote on a budget bill that required a late-night session to pass. He explained that he had had a drink or two while waiting for the session to begin and barely remembered what happened (except for “someone asking me to vote”).

ADDING INSULT (AND INJURY) TO INJURY Joseph Wheeler filed a $12 million lawsuit in August against Prince George’s Hospital in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, over its treatment following a June 23 car accident. He was admitted with serious injuries, but hospital staff mistakenly marked him for next-day cancer surgery, and when he protested and tried to leave, two muscular staff “security” men restrained him, dishing out even more pain. Yelled one, according to the lawsuit, “Get off the floor, bitch!...I don’t care who you think you are. This is my camp.” The next day Wheeler talked his way out and over to St. Mary’s Hospital, where he was treated for four broken ribs, a sprained shoulder, a ruptured spleen and a concussion.

INCOMPETENT CRIMINALS (1) In Maine Township, Illinois, Janusz Owca was arrested in August for choking his wife and was booked into jail and given his traditional phone call. With police listening, Owca called his wife and threatened to kill her. (2) Veteran criminal Nathan Pugh, 49, walked in to a Wells Fargo bank in Dallas on July 26 and presented his holdup note to a teller (claiming to have a “bom”). The teller told Pugh that she could not release large amounts of money without proper ID and convinced Pugh to turn over both a Texas state ID card and his Wells Fargo debit card, both in his own name. Police arrived just as Pugh was leaving and after an attempt to grab a hostage, he was arrested. (He even failed with the hostage—a woman carrying a child—who still managed to take Pugh to the floor.) ■

OUR PICKS IN THE STATE & COUNTY RACES

ENDORSEMENTS

E

ndorsements are a tricky thing. Essentially, they boil down to someone telling you how to vote, which would seem to undermine your right to make up your own mind. But that’s not our goal. These endorsements serve two purposes: to let you know where we, as one of Maui’s few media outlets, stand; and to provide undecided voters with a little guidance. Obviously we bring our own slant. That’s something we’ve never been afraid to admit. However, we’ve also given every candidate a chance, sending out questionnaires, conducting interviews, researching records and paying close attention to the various debates and forums. We believe everyone who runs for public office deserves to be heard, regardless of stature, financing or experience. At the same time, we see the necessity, as the campaign wears on, to separate the contenders from the pretenders. In the end—whether you agree with all, some or none of our picks—we sincerely hope you’ll vote in the September 18 primary. NOTE: In the federal and state races, which are partisan, we’ve endorsed one candidate from each party. In the county races, which are non-partisan, we’ve endorsed two candidates, as that’s the number that will move on to the general election. Of course, you can only pick one, so we’ve tried to make our reasons for supporting each candidate—and our reservations—clear. In cases where there was no candidate we could even partially support, we’ve withheld our endorsement.

U.S. SENATOR – DEMOCRAT Disillusionment with our federal leadership has reached critical mass. Though at times over-simplified or misguided, we understand and sympathize with the call for radical, systemic change.Yet it can’t simply be about “out with the old”; the “new” that comes in has to represent at least the hope of something

better. And, though he embodies Washington’s old guard, Senator Dan Inouye remains the best choice in a strange, occasionally comical field of challengers who range from the well-intentioned but underqualified to the downright crazy. As a decorated war hero, chair of the Appropriations Committee and the longest-serving member of the Senate, we hope Inouye will use his position to fight the influence peddling, corruption and partisan gridlock that have poisoned national politics.

GOVERNOR – DEMOCRAT The barbs traded between old rivals Neil Abercrombie and Mufi Hannemann have made headlines, at times obscuring the issues. In the end, both men are career politicians and carry the baggage that label entails.Yet while Abercrombie has stayed mostly on-message, focusing primarily on food and energy security and education reform, Hannemann— who once upon a time branded Abercrombie a pot-smoking hippie—has strayed frequently into the divisive politics of race, culture and character assassination, revealing himself to be a candidate who cares more about winning elections than addressing Hawaii’s needs. We don’t agree with every decision Abercrombie made as a member of Congress, but we admire his lifetime of service, respect his ideology and believe in his ability to govern.

MauiTime endorses

NEIL ABERCROMBIE

GOVERNOR – REPUBLICAN We’ve made no secret of our distaste for Lt. Gov. Duke Aiona; we don’t like his policies, his publicly declared religious leanings or

his connection to the failures of the Lingle Administration. So while we’re also not sold on his sole Republican opponent, John Carroll, we’re prepared to support him in the primary in an “anybody-but-Duke” spirit and to applaud Carroll for taking on the all-but-coronated frontrunner.

MauiTime endorses

JOHN CARROLL

LT. GOVERNOR – DEMOCRAT More than any other race, this one is filled with qualified, intriguing candidates. Six of the seven contenders have served in the state legislature, and of those six, three appeal to us. A former teacher and school administrator, Lyla Berg brings a solid education background, while Gary Hooser is noted for his environmental record. We think either would make a fine Lieutenant Governor and strongly considered both. In the end, however, we settled on Brian Schatz. Like his opponents, Schatz has legislative experience; he’s also served as state Democratic Party Chair, spearheaded Obama’s 2008 Hawaii campaign and has worked in the nonprofit sector. At the same time, he’s less than 40 years old. We admire both his experience and youthful exuberance and feel he’d be a nice complement to an elder statesmen like Abercrombie.

STATE HOUSE DISTRICT 8 – DEMOCRAT In 2008, here’s what we wrote about this race: “Representative Joe Souki notably came down on the wrong side of the Superferry mess. He also gets most of his campaign cash

from business entities and PACs outside his district. Tasha Kama, a community activist and pastor of the Christian Ministry Church with deep roots in the community, looks like an excellent alternative.” Souki won that election, but four years later nothing has changed. He’s still emblematic of the legislature’s good old boys club, still taking money from Oahu and Mainland interests and still raising serious questions about his loyalty. This time, three candidates have stepped up to challenge Souki, including teacher Justin Hughey and insurance agent Thomas Cerizo, but we still like Kama.

MauiTime endorses

TASHA KAMA

STATE HOUSE DISTRICT 10 – REPUBLICAN While incumbent Angus McKelvey runs unopposed for the Democratic nomination, two Republicans are vying to challenge him: Ramon Madden and Chayne Marten. Madden got the nomination last year and lost to McKelvey; Marten ran unsuccessfully for the West Maui Council seat. While we disagree with Madden on many issues—he’s aligned himself with the Maui Tea Party and, after the civil union veto, wrote that HB444 “doesn’t add civil rights, it takes them away”—we believe Madden’s interest in the issues and commitment to West Maui are genuine and that he’d serve his constituents passionately and wholeheartedly.

MauiTime endorses

RAMON MADDEN

STATE HOUSE DISTRICT 11 – DEMOCRAT At the end of his first term in 2008, we chastised incumbent Joe Bertram for his missteps, including publicly defending the


controversial Wailea 670 development, but backed him in the hope that he’d do better with a little seasoning. With another term under his belt, Bertram remains confounding, exercising questionable judgment in a number of cases yet also coming down on the right side of important issues like civil unions and Hawaii’s voter-approved but oft-ignored medical marijuana law. We’re not convinced Bertram will ever stop making head-scratching blunders, and we considered his opponents, Netra Halperin (who tried for the Kahului Council seat in 2008) and Johanna Amorin. However, reservations aside, we still admire Joe for his willingness to take a stand. Enough, at least, to give him another shot.

MauiTime endorses

JOE BERTRAM

COUNTY COUNCIL – SOUTH MAUI We like incumbent Wayne Nishiki for his consistent, independent, sometimes combative voice and his willingness to ask tough questions. At the same time, we have serious reservations about the $100,000 loan he accepted from developer Everett Dowling (Nishiki says he’s finally started to pay it off, though a Board of Ethics disclosure reveals he still owes somewhere between $55,000 and $99,000). Meanwhile, Nishiki’s opponent, Don Couch, has said the right things regarding sustainability and smart growth and is clearly dedicated to public service, but his campaign spending reports reveal he’s accepted contributions from developers, including $1,000 from Wailea 670 rep and current Land Use Commissioner Charlie Jencks. Retired plumbing contractor Norman Vares is also running for this seat, though he often gets lost in the heated debate between Couch and Nishiki. It’s a debate we’d like to see continue into the general election.

MauiTime endorses

WAYNE NISHIKI and DON COUCH

COUNTY COUNCIL – WEST MAUI With popular incumbent Jo Anne Johnson stepping aside due to term limits, a wide field of candidates is jostling to fill the void. For us, two stand out. Elle Cochran has founded and worked with a variety of local nonprofits, and established herself as a strong, rising environmental advocate. She doesn’t have much government experience, but we believe she has the potential to grow into the office—much the way Johnson did. Another interesting, if more enigmatic, candidate is Ke‘eaumoku Kapu. Kapu has served on a number of Native Hawaiian boards and commissions and has the potential to give the Native Hawaiian community a voice on the Council, perhaps helping unite and codify a vital but often fragmented segment of Maui Nui. That’s a lot to ask of one candidate, and we’re not certain Kapu’s up to the task—but we’re intrigued by the possibilities.

COUNTY COUNCIL – UPCOUNTRY For us, the race to replace termed-out Mike Molina boils down to youth and experience. Youth in the form of Kai Nishiki, who ran her first campaign against Molina in 2008, and experience in the form of Mike White, who served five years in the state House and has spent the rest of his lengthy career in the visitor industry. We believe Nishiki, like Cochran, has the fire and intelligence to develop into a fine Councilmember. We also like White for his business acumen and his dedication to cultural preservation. A general election race between these two should engender constructive debate—and a good outcome for Upcountry Maui.

MAYOR That we believe Mayor Charmaine Tavares has been bad for Maui County is well known. The national and global conditions that created this economic tempest may have been out of her hands but, like a captain sailing a ship through a storm, we think her policies and governing style have left Maui worse off than it could have been under different leadership. The 10 candidates running against her represent an interesting cross-section, and we like several of them. We admire the experience of former Planning Director Chris Hart and we’re tempted by Randy Piltz, who has a long resume and respect from many corners of the community but has never held elected office. Even candidates with whom we disagree, like Maui Tea Party founder Marc Hodges, have shaped the race in thought-provoking ways. This wasn’t an easy decision, but in the end we settled on two candidates: Councilmember Sol Kaho‘ohalahala and former Mayor Alan Arakawa. We support them for different reasons. Kaho‘ohalahala has a statesman-like demeanor and extensive experience in state and county government, and also preaches the most clear and consistent pro-sustainability message. We believe he’d fight for important issues like food and energy independence, and help take Maui in a new direction. Arakawa, on the other hand, represents a link to the recent past; some might say this is no time to go backwards, and we considered that. But, though he made a few notable mistakes in office, we feel Arakawa—with his firm grasp of the issues and administrative, detail-oriented approach— deserved a second term in 2006. We also hope that after four years on the sidelines, he’s had time to regroup, strategize and adapt.

This year I jumped in with both feet and entered my own dish into the seriously competitive field.

Big Island winery offers award-winning tastes at high elevation

H

ot lava isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only thing making news on the Big Islandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kilauea Volcano. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also the awardwinning Volcano Winery, which recently announced a new Pinot Grigio from winemaker Tim Kenny. Volcano Winery is located 4,000 feet up, near Volcano National Park on the slopes of the Big Islandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s active southeast volcano. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only winery on the island and grows four varieties of grapes: Marchael Foch, Chambourcin, Pinot Noir and Cayuga White. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These hybrid grapes are less susceptible to pathogeninfection,andsomewhatresistant to the high pressure at our site,â&#x20AC;? says Kenny. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Foch makes a lighter, fruity red wine. the Chambourcin is a black grape that makes a deep stand-alone wine. The Pinot Noir is a good ďŹ t for our cooler climate, and the Cayuga makes a sweeter wine wellsuited to blending.â&#x20AC;? Kenny has been making wine on the volcano for more than a decade, and the winery bottled their ďŹ rst case in 1993. This is the ďŹ rst year theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re bottling the Pinot Grigio, which Kenny says has â&#x20AC;&#x153;a crisp fruit-forward presentation of green apple, tropical fruits and citrus with a refreshing ďŹ nish.â&#x20AC;? Other wines bottled at Volcano Winery include Pinot Noir, Volcano Red, Symphony Mele, Volcano Blush, Hawaiian Guava, Macadamia Nut Honey Wine and Infusion. Infusion, a honey and tea wine, is just one year into production and already winning awards, taking bronze at the San Francisco International Wine Competition. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the brainchild of ďŹ eld manager Alex Wood, who worked on it for about eight months before its release. The honey is produced by Captain Cook Honey in Kealakekua and the black tea is grown at the Volcano Tea Gardens. In 2007, the Volcano Winery received a grant to produce its own tea and will be harvesting the ďŹ rst plants next month. You can sample these wines by visiting the winery, where they do free tastings year-round, or by visiting their Web site, volcanowinery.com, and placing an order. â&#x2013;

ithin a week of the Japanese release of Halie Loren’s album They Oughta Write a Song this past May, both the album and title track jumped into the top five—and soon thereafter, number one—on iTunes’ Japan rankings, and topped other notable hot lists. Loren has since earned tons of attention overseas, and this week marks her first journey to the island nation that’s so fully embraced her— somewhat to her surprise, she says. Next week, en route home to Oregon, Loren is scheduled to make several appearances on Maui, alongside her longtime collaborator, pianist Matt Treder—appearances that Maui jazz enthusiasts will not want to miss. “I have yet to understand why things have taken off the way that they have,” says Loren. “I’m very new to the Japanese market, but because I’m not there, I don’t really know exactly how everything ties together. Really, it’s been a wonderful surprise.” In the United States (where They Oughta was self-produced and released in 2008), Loren has a careful hand in her career, saying each album (there are five to date) “has my fingerprint on every part of the process,” from writing to mixing to marketing. For such a hands-on, indieproud artist, the separation from overseas success might seem stressful, but Loren takes it with a smoothness that mirrors her scorched meringue vocals. “It’s a brand new world for me,” she says. “I’m excited about every aspect of it, and all that I have to look forward to.” Though she may be new to the Japanese market, this 25-year-old’s home-soil career has already spanned a decade. She began singing professionally at the tender age of 14, having moved from her native Pacific Northwest to Nashville, Tennessee, to pursue a music career (a temporary relocation; she’s now happily an Oregonian). Numerous awards and accolades in the U.S. are testament to both her vocal talent and likable countenance; most recently They Oughta earned the prestigious Best Vocal Jazz Album at the 2009 Just Plain Folks Music Awards. “It’s the biggest indie music awards in the world,” Loren explains. “I knew I was a finalist, out of hundreds and hundreds of entrants, but when I heard my name

called, it didn’t register for what felt like a long time. Then, this feeling of joy just rushed out of me unexpectedly and I couldn’t contain myself. I couldn’t believe the honor, to be recognized by my peers. I felt very encouraged and touched—that I’m doing something that’s right for me, and connecting with others.” They Oughta, with its strong takes on classic tracks like Otis Blackwell and Eddie Cooley’s “Fever” and Otis Redding and Steve Cropper’s “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay,” is a huge departure from her Lilithesque 2006 effort Full Circle, which— though showcasing her technical skill— sounds a bit like a bloodless Tori Amos. “It was a time when I was really processing a lot of teenage angst, I guess you could say,” she laughs. “Growing up and growing pains. It was a time of musical growth for me, becoming more confident as an instrumentalist and being involved in every aspect of songwriting.” While that growth is made evident with They Oughta, it’s but the first spring green compared to the orchard-in-bloom that is her latest, Stages—a live album recorded at the Kiawanda Center and Eden Hall in Oregon. “I’ve often longed to be able to translate the energy and spontaneity of live performace while recording in the studio— so instead, this time we brought the ‘studio’ to the stage,” Loren describes in the album’s liner notes. The quality and control of Loren’s vocal talent is evident with this live

endeavor, showcasing how she’s come into her own with jazz underpinnings and a tincture of playful, inky blue intonations. So what’s next? “Well, I’m always thinking a few album projects ahead, and I’ve already written a lot of songs,” she says. “At this point, I’ll probably be incorporating more original material into my future projects. But I’m careful about not really having an absolute plan. Things take interesting turns, sometimes—like Japan! Everything that’s been going on is nothing like I would have imagined last fall. I’m really looking forward to seeing what happens. In the meantime, I’ll be doing what I know how to do best, which is performing live shows and writing songs.” ■ To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/1412m

Fall Movie Preview Oscar bait, erotic thrillers and Coen Bros. Westerns

Y

ou know the drill; another fall, another round of sequels: Harry Potter, Saw, Jackass, Paranormal Activity, the Narnia kids and, yes, the Fockers. Even with the inevitable groaners, like a live-action Yogi Bear movie no one asked for, we still have new films from some of our best directors: Sophia Coppola (Somewhere), Wes Craven (My Soul to Take), Julie Taymor (The Tempest), John Carpenter (The Ward) and Woody Allen (You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger). There’s also the Denzel Washington runaway-train thriller Unstoppable, Ryan Reynolds’s one-man, escape-from-a-coffin nail-biter Buried and Christina Aguilera and Cher in the guaranteed camp classic musical Burlesque. Here are ten of the most promising— and possibly best—of the year’s remaining cinematic offerings.

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (opens September 24)

Due Date (opens November 5) THE GIST: Stars Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis; from The Hangover director Todd Phillips. WHY IT COULD ROCK: Downey Jr. in an R-rated road trip comedy. Enough said. UNLESS: A little Galifianakis goes a long way. Was he the really best choice for a costar over, say, Will Ferrell or Jim Carrey? BEST CASE SCENARIO: Downey Jr. keeps his hot streak going, sans clunky metal costume.

The Tree of Life (December; exact date TBD)

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

Hereafter (opens October 22) THE GIST: Clint Eastwood’s supernatural drama stars Matt Damon and Bryce Dallas Howard. WHY IT COULD ROCK: At age 80, Eastwood is still one of our greatest American directors. Filmed in London,

California, Paris…and Maui! UNLESS: It doesn’t connect like Clint’s best work and is instead one of those ponderous, well-intentioned Eastwood movies that people say they admire but never actually see. BEST CASE SCENARIO: Tourists start taking the Hereafter tour in Lahaina.

THE GIST: The latest from reclusive genius Terrence Malick, starring Brad Pitt and Sean Penn. WHY IT COULD ROCK: Malick’s last two films, The Thin Red Line and The New World, split audiences but are widely acknowledged as masterpieces. His films are smart and gorgeous; he’s the only heir to Stanley Kubrick we have. UNLESS: It’s a big, pretentious dud. Shot

THE GIST: Oliver Stone’s first sequel— to his seminal 1987 film—starring Shia LaBeouf and Michael Douglas. WHY IT COULD ROCK: Douglas is back as Gordon Gekko and Charlie Sheen returns in a cameo as Bud Fox. Given the recent financial meltdown it’s certainly timely. And when he’s on his game, no one can stir an audience like Stone. UNLESS: It’s another Stone clunker, in the not-so-proud tradition of Alexander. Will the recent controversy hurt it? Can LaBeouf carry a movie without the help of CGI robots? BEST CASE SCENARIO: “Greed is Good” T-shirts outsell “Pants on the Ground” Snuggies.

The Social Network (opens October 1) THE GIST: The true story of how Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) conquered Silicon Valley. Co-stars Justin Timberlake; directed by David Fincher. WHY IT COULD ROCK: May define this techno-toy loving, emotionally detached generation like no other film before or since. Fincher is a genius, Trent Reznor does the music and the trailer is the year’s best. UNLESS: It’s even talkier than Fincher’s brilliant but unloved Zodiac. Will audiences get the irony or will they run to their laptops and hit the “dislike” button? BEST CASE SCENARIO: Makes you feel really, really guilty about “un-friending” your FB BFFs.

Due Date

Film Critique

Tron Legacy

Black Swan

years ago in Texas, it was supposed to open in 2008 and keeps casually missing its release date. Malick is reportedly still working on it! BEST CASE SCENARIO: The film (and its IMAX companion release) prove to be worth the wait.

WHY IT COULD ROCK: Aronofsky’s first film since The Wrestler has beautiful leading ladies, sizzling sex scenes and a gripping mystery at its core. The trailer is dazzling. UNLESS: Does Showgirls ring a bell? BEST CASE SCENARIO: Men nationwide suddenly become very interested in ballet.

Black Swan

The Fighter

(opens December 1)

(opens December 10)

THE GIST: Darren Aronofsky’s erotic thriller, set in the world of ballet, starring Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis.

THE GIST: True-life boxing drama starring Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale and Amy Adams. WHY IT COULD ROCK: Wahlberg has

literally been training five years for the starring role. Director David O’Russell made the underrated Three Kings and Bale is back in a gritty, meaty role. UNLESS: It’s less like Raging Bull and more like O’Russell’s last collaboration with Wahlberg, the uneven I Heart Huckabees. BEST CASE SCENARIO: Bale gets a long overdue Academy Award.

Tron Legacy (opens December 17) THE GIST: Sequel to Tron, starring Jeff

Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner. WHY IT COULD ROCK: Looks beyond cool. Bridges plays two roles in his first post-Oscar movie. The 3D won’t be just a gimmick; years in the planning, the f/x promises to be groundbreaking. UNLESS: It’s a sequel to a 22-year-old film that had great special effects but a lousy story. Will the plot—about a father and son reunion—connect, or is the CGI going to be the whole show? BEST CASE SCENARIO: After a 25-year wait, Pac-Man: The Movie finally gets the green light.

How Do You Know True Grit

(opens December 17) THE GIST: The new comedy from James L. Brooks stars Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd, Owen Wilson and Jack Nicholson. WHY IT COULD ROCK: The writer/ director of Terms of Endearment and As Good As It Gets reunites with Nicholson, in his first movie since The Departed. Brooks usually takes time to polish his screenplays. UNLESS: Brooks’s last film was Spanglish, an admirable flop. Can he bounce back? BEST CASE SCENARIO: Winds up as the year’s top romantic comedy.

True Grit (opens December 25) THE GIST: A western from The Coen Brothers starring Jeff Bridges, Josh Brolin and Matt Damon. WHY IT COULD ROCK: The Coens insist it’s a new version of the original novel and not a remake of the John Wayne classic. Bridges reunites with the Coens for the first time since playing The Dude. UNLESS: It’s like the Coens’ Intolerable Cruelty, where an all-star cast fumbles with a bad screenplay. BEST CASE SCENARIO: The eye-patch gunslinger look is back. ■ To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/1412f

This Week's Picks Bacon Orders

Curioser and Curioser

Friday (September 10), 6pm, Star Noodle, Lahaina, $52

Friday (September 10), 7-10pm, Paia Tattoo Parlor, Paia, free

From “Baconnaise” and “Bacon Salt” (brought to us by “everything should taste like bacon” company J&D’s) to novelty bandages (a whole new take on “cured meat”) to award-winning Bacon Vodka, nothing is sizzling on the foodie hot-list quite like bacon. In his book Zingerman’s Guide to Better Bacon, author Ari Weinzweig (co-founder of acclaimed Zingerman’s Community of Businesses) explains “why bacon is ‘the olive oil of America’,” and traces its origins to “medieval England, where bacon was used to promote matrimonial harmony.” If the path to marital bliss is paved with pork, and the way to the heart is through the stomach, then nothing squeals amore more than swine with your swain (or swainess). Those roads converge at Star Noodle this Friday night. Weinzweig teams with Chef Sheldon Simeon for the highly anticipated “Bacon Night” dinner, a single-seating, six-course, pre-fixe menu using premium bacon products from around the world. The preliminary menu (subject to small changes according to what’s freshest) includes bacon-roasted Kula sweet corn, Kampachi and pancetta, ahi “bacon,” steamed bacon buns, jook and bacon and miso bacon ice cream for dessert. With just 60 tickets available (and over half sold at the time of this writing), if you manage to score reservations, you’ll be happier than a pig in... well, you’ll be happy. 667-5400; starnoodle.com

“The museum is a 17th-century innovation in the Western world, born out of the cabinets and collections of merchants and explorers,” write Jane Gregory and Steve Miller in their book, Science in Public: Communication, Culture, and Credibility. During the Age of Exploration in the late 15th and early 16th centuries, oddities collected by world travelers—and the baroque way in which they were displayed— became popular among posh Europeans, and have since been known as “cabinets of curiosities” (and, true to the etymology of “cabinet,” are often comprised of whole rooms rather than simply pieces of furniture). “A compilation of remarkable things was attempted as a mirror of contemporary knowledge, regardless of whether those objects were created by the genius of man or the caprice of nature,” writes Wolfram Koeppe in a thematic essay for The Metropolitan Museum of Art (e.g. the platypus was first written off as a hoax). Paying homage to the style and spirit of cabinet curiosities, Ghalib El-Khalidi—a Palestinian-American science illustrator—has created a collection of sculptures and drawings of an imagined natural history. Explore ElKhalidi’s work, including polymer clay sculptures of creature heads and pencil drawings of imaginary insects and anthropomorphized animals, at his first solo exhibition, hosted by the Paia Tattoo Parlor. The opening reception is slated for Friday night, with the showcase running through October 7. 579-8515; paiatattooparlor.com

News to Us Thursday (September 16), 7-9pm, J. Walter Cameron Center Auditorium, Wailuku, free Plop me in the far corner of UH Maui College’s library with just the zip of the microfilm reels and a handful of dimes (page prints are 10 cents apiece), and I’m happier than a school of silverfish snacking on a stack of old periodicals. Digging through the dailies of yesteryear is my favorite way to research stories, and is made easier with handy dandy indices. But when searching for stuff between 1951 and 1973 (or later, for that matter), I’ve been resigned to scanning headlines page by dizzying page. Sure, it’s a fun way to happen upon stories you might otherwise have missed (not to mention ads from the days of war bonds and “flare pants”), but trudging through a time warp is nowhere to be when present-day deadlines loom. Thank goodness the third volume of the Maui News Index has just been published; and to celebrate, there will be a free presentation and panel talk next Thursday. Gail Ainsworth—who has nearly single-handedly compiled all three volumes—will moderate the discussion of how the island changed during that poignant 22-year era (freshly the 50th state, Korean and Vietnam wars, development of Kihei and Ka‘anapali, etc.). Audience participation is encouraged and refreshments will be provided. The index is available at the Bailey House Museum gift shop along with the other two volumes (Vol. 1, 1900-1932 and Vol. 2, 1933-1950, $50 each), with proceeds benefiting the Maui Historical Society (a nonprofit founded, appositely, in 1951). 244-3326; mauimuseum.org More on The Maui News: Celebrating Matthew Thayer’s three-decade career is the new Schaefer International Gallery showcase “Matthew Thayer and The Maui News: Thirty Years of Photojournalism.” The opening reception is scheduled for this Saturday (September 11) at 5pm, with the show running through October 23 (daily gallery hours 11am-5pm, and before Castle Theater shows). Also, save the date for Sunday (September 26), for “The Big Scoop on The News,” also at the gallery, featuring a panel of newspaper professionals dishing on the what it takes to do the daily. OK, that’s our Maui News love for the year; now back to pissing them off. 242-7469; mauiarts.org

Box-Spring Battlefield “Who needs sleep?/Well you’re never gonna get it/Who needs sleep?/Tell me, what’s that for?/Who needs sleep?/Be happy with what you get/ There’s guys been awake since the second World War...” - Barenaked Ladies, “Who Needs Sleep?” BLEEP. BLEEP. BLEEP. BLEEP.

E

merging from my comforter cocoon, a lonely, chickenskinned arm dangles, exposed, like the peeking onset of a Barrel of Monkeys escape. It is the wee, dark hours of the M-F. That wretched noise is gone, but not for long. A siren in the distance. A war horn’s blare, buried in the din of oblivion—but louder and louder it grows... BLEEP. BLEEP. BLEEP. BLEEP.

Just think: right now you're only getting some of the mauidish.com stories. Go online mauivents.com mauifeed.com and see mauitime.com what you're missing. Maui's only locally owned and independent news source. 28 September 9, 2010

The sheets hold more sway than the prospects of post-sleep. Although my horizontal position is maintained, with every blind whap against the alarm’s biggest button, precious morning minutes are gobbled up, leaving little more than cookie crumbs and broken bits in the bottom of the blister pack. But like the last bag of Chips Ahoy! before fat camp, I fight for those vestiges of sweet, sweet slumber. And though I risk compounding habitual tardiness and reaffirming lethargy (scientifically speaking, it’s known as muscle-less memory), I return with relish to the dawn-drenched outskirts of Dreamland—a war zone. BLEEP. BLEEP. BLEEP. BLEE—WHAP! I wield Snooze like a blade without a handle. A blade that cuts both ways. One whap thwarts a good shave in the shower that is yet to be taken; another whap and there goes the flossing of teeth yet to be brushed; and whap after whap rushes the things that are to be gathered, postpones the tank and cup(s) to be filled, enrages the commute to be conquered, compromises the work to be done... But oh! Each extra, sweet second is worth the sloth; and while in bed, there are bigger battles. BLEEP. BLEEP. BLEEP. BLEE—WHAP! After all, there’s the issue of the the Down Duelists—marshmallow monstrosities who slap your cheek with Egyptian cotton gloves before

firing feathers at your face so as to tickle you to tears and seal your eyes shut with maka pia pia—and the Blanket Brigade—quilted Frankenstein paratroopers who descend to smother you with fleece just as your bleary eyes venture to open again. And when your lashes have been twist-tied and body cozily mummified, they rock you off to their PillOW camp where there’s naught but the whisper of white noise and favorite lullabies from an infancy forgotten. Until... BLEEP. BLEEP. BL—WHAP! I’m a traitor, confused between consciousness. I’ve not put up much of a fight against the ZZZs. If anything, I’ve been a guilty-conscience accomplice to my own capture. How many whaps has it been? Eight? Twelve? More? The whapping end of my lonely arm has stretched and laid to rest on the Snooze. “It’s a sickness,” my increasingly more pissed-off bedmate screams. “Just wake up or turn the alarm off.” “No! If I turn the alarm off, there’s no telling how long I’ll sleep,” I drool. “’Til tomorrow, maybe. Or even the next day.” It’s a reply half-meant to appease the left side of the mattress, half to ward off the Wink Warriors, luring me back to REM. They stretch their stitched faces into sinister smiles, seeming to like the thought of me being blissfully bedridden. BLEEP. BLEEP. BL—CRUNCH An angry fist does not whap. “Just. Wake. Up.” A wire shoots a faint spark. A furtive blee. Then, silence. “OK. Jeez Louise. Good morning to you, too.” “What?! That damn alarm has been going off for hours, and...” But there are showers to take, teeth to be brushed, things to gather, tanks and cup(s) to fill, commutes to conquer, work to be done and new, hopefully less groggy battles to fight. ■

Horoscopes

sign.language.astrology@gmail.com VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) Fighting is an art form. I’m not talking about fencing or Sumo wrestling, but rather simply the ability to conclusively resolve conflicts in a graceful way. This isn’t something that comes naturally to you Virgos. Although you’re not as likely to run from disagreeements as, say, a gentle Pisces, you still occasionally back down from them instead of standing your ground, or express them in ways that won’t yield positive results. While coping with your own resentment may be easier than sticking to your guns, it’s not healthier. Practice makes perfect. Have it out, and keep having it out until, you know, you’re actually good at it.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) You can only suppress your own needs for so long. You’re like a competitive swimmer who’s learned to hold her breath for minutes longer than ordinary humans. If postponing (or stifling) your own desires was an Olympic event, you’d be a gold medalist. While that flexibility helps you get into relationships, it doesn’t serve you in the longterm. Even champion swimmers need to come up for air sometime. And when you do, finally revealing your long-sublimated desires, it can come as an unwelcome shock to the person who thought you existed just to validate their wishes. Be real from the beginning—or at least before the third lap.

SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) A recurring theme I’ve observed is how quickly strengths can transform into weaknesses, and vice versa. We don’t often have control over this involuntary coin flip, and some people even have trouble seeing how their tremendous strengths could ever be points of weakness (or vice versa). Although the transmutation of strength into weakness is a hard sell, you’re fortunate enough to have the opposite experience this week: demonstrating how a shortcoming can actually enrich your life and create greater joy, beauty, or opportunity—as long as you’re openminded and flexible enough to seize your chance. Don’t miss it!

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC.21) Every time I have trouble getting myself to go the gym (nearly every day, naturally), I spur myself on with an inspiring picture of the hot body I hope to someday have, instead of berating myself by noticing how far I have yet to go, or pointing out the physical flaws that need correction. Some people think they’ll have better luck focusing on the negative, but I don’t often observe this to be true. You’ve employed such a strategy lately. How’s that working out for you? Don’t be your own drill sergeant. This week, try another tact: one where you’re encouraging and supportive to yourself, the way you’d (hopefully) treat a good friend.

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) There’s no real shortcut here. What you’re trying to do is like capturing a photograph at the perfect angle with amazing lighting that manages to hide every extra pound or flaw. While that’s certainly less effort than the alternative—going to the gym and ditching some of that extra weight, for example—it’s also less honest and, ultimately, less fulfilling. Take the long road to where you’re going, even if it’s harder. When you do finally arrive at your destination (or the surprising place you end up instead), you’ll probably be healthier and definitely be happier than you are right now.

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) While you have achieved quite a bit of success despite spreading yourself so thin, we both know that if you were to focus in just one or two directions for more than a year or three, you’d be much more successful. Of course I mention it because that’s precisely what you’re contemplating now. As you consider it, ask yourself: what is success, really? If you pursued a more concentrated approach you’d have more money, and perhaps prestige or recognition. But would you be happier? Ultimately, whether or not you decide to continue on as you have (which has worked out so far) or change course now should be entirely contingent on this question.

PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) Although you may occasionally feel your pets and plants make better company than people do, you need to be especially vigilant about not becoming a total recluse. Especially when besieged by some strong emotion, it’s all too easy for you to hole up and stew. Please make sure you’re creating some openings for other humans to have significant influence in your life (yes, some of which may be negative). That means going out and doing stuff with other people, at least a couple times a week. Don’t worry, that still leaves you five nights with the felines and ferns, which ought to be plenty.

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Leos sometimes hide behind their hair. Pisces frequently use affectations to cover their insecurities. Aries, however, most often use an exaggerated bravado to cloak their doubts. This works much of the time, but for those of us who know you (or other Aries) well, we can pretty much see right through it. Consider your “audience.” We already know all your tricks. Even if we like their flash, we don’t really need to see them again. If you’re pretty sure we won’t fall for the show, don’t bother with it; you’ll get better results by just being honest and real instead.

TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) People either like you or they don’t, and it usually seems like there’s not much you can do about it. That, however, isn’t precisely true. A more accurate statement is that there’s not much you’re willing to do about it. That’s okay; you thoroughly know and accept yourself just as you are. However, you should own that. Being unwilling to bend or compromise isn’t frequently regarded as the most admirable character trait, so you really shouldn’t be surprised when it turns some people off. I like that you’re not always willing to make concessions just to be popular; what I don’t like as much is when you blame other people for not being willing to meet you more than halfway.

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Designer Gary Chang invented a way to make a studio apartment transform into 20 different rooms, with movable walls and furniture. Weirdly enough, it reminded me of you. With a change of outfit, attitude, or setting, you can transform so completely as to be virtually unrecognizable. This can be bewildering to some, and inspiring to others. Unfortunately, lately you’ve been spending time with more of the bewildered types and not so many inspired ones. Instead of trying to be less flexible or multitalented, this week focus on finding people who won’t be quite so anxious, offended, or put off by it.

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) When things don’t play out exactly (or even similarly to) how you imagined, try not to get too upset about it. In retrospect, you’ll probably discover that your overall experience was overwhelmingly positive— unless you spent the whole time feeling bitter and let down. Instead of being hung up on what was “supposed” to be happening, try to enjoy what’s actually happening. It’s probably, at least in some ways, much better than whatever vision you were trying to manifest. Noticing that might be a blow to your ego—but you’re also likely to have a lot more fun.

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) While the sun is, effectively, the source of most life on Earth, it’s also powerfully dangerous. Most humans who go out without sunscreen for any length of time usually regret it. A little respect and caution for similar sources of radiance is in order this week. It’s a good week to reclaim your natural birthright. This doesn’t mean becoming insufferable and entitled. However, if someone seems to be forgetting just how radiant and strong you can be, give them a little scorch to the ego. Nothing that a little tenderly applied aloe won’t soothe—but something they won’t easily forget, either.
