LETTERSTOTHEEDITOR IF YOU’RE HAPPY, WE’RE HAPPY Just wanted to let you know that I’m happy to see Rob [Parson]’s name in your paper as a byline. Looking forward to the mana`o he’ll be imparting to the masses. -Judy Edwards, via email Editor’s note: Rob Parson’s new column Rob Report appears this week, too, on page 7.

HATES CONTAMINATED WATER I want to thank Maui Time for the excellent article on the pipeline that is being built to connect the toxic wells at Hamakuapoko to public water (“Pipe Dream,” Jan. 4, 2007). This is an outrage. I am grateful to Maui Time for bringing this issue to the forefront. I know the County Council had been absolutely clear that the wells are never to be used for human consumption under any circumstances, including drought. And yet the work [former Mayor Alan] Arakawa secretly began on this pipeline continues. - Rena Morningstar Blumberg, via email Editor’s note: For an update on the Hamakuapoko pipe situation, check out Mira Allen’s latest story on page 8.

CONFIDENTIAL TO THE GUY WHO KEEPS COMPLAINING ABOUT THE PHOTO AND ACCOMPANYING CAPTION THAT RUNS ON OUR MOVIE CAPSULES PAGE: You’re quite correct that the caption accompanying that photo does not say specifically which movie it refers to. And you’re exactly right when you say that in order to find out what movie that photo is referring to, you have to read each of the new movie capsules. But what you don’t seem to recognize is that if we were to do as you suggest and identify the movie the photo comes from, then you and perhaps many of our readers will no longer have to read the wonderful, pithy, highly informative film capsules we write each week. You’ll just look at the pretty photo and then skip right to the accompanying capsule. You’d be missing out on not only our incredibly entertaining film write-ups, but also just the joy of stumbling across a movie you’d never heard of before that might interest you. So, as I explained to you last year when you first started complaining about this, we will not change our movie photo caption policy. Yes, we’re forcing you to continue reading our outstanding movie section. Remember: reading is a good thing. Reading is your friend. Maui Time welcomes letters commenting on our coverage, but only if they’re complimentary. If you still wish to complain about something, please have the decency to use plenty of bad punctuation and grammar—that makes it easier for us to make fun of you when we respond. We also reserve the right to edit your letters. Send your letters to the editor via e-mail (, regular mail (Letters to the Editor, Maui Time Weekly, 33 N.

DAM INVESTIGATION DAMNS HC&S Oooh, A&B is in trouble. Okay, maybe not actual trouble. But they—or rather their subsidiary Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar—is definitely in the hot seat. That’s because the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced last week it will rigorously examine 11 dams across the state, including HC&S’s Reservoir 24 in Paia—mostly because of their proximity to urban development, according to a Jan. 11 Honolulu Advertiser story. The earthen Not to scale Reservoir 24 dam, which has been in more or less continuous operation since 1917, is one of four Maui dams classified as “High Hazard” last year following the Koloko Dam disaster on Kauai. In mid-March 2006, HC&S Plantation Manager Steve Holaday told The Maui News that his company “does everything it can to actively manage the flow into and out of the reservoir so as to protect the public’s safety.” But that’s not really what the Army Corps of Engineers found when they conducted a “limited visual dam safety inspection” of the dam. In their May 2006 report, the Army Corps found that the dam’s downstream channel was “unsatisfactory”—namely because it was “too small to contain flow for this dam.” And that posed a threat because “Houses exist along the flood plain downstream of the dam.” Indeed, the army engineers determined that HC&S has used the dam for irrigation but kept the accompanying reservoir dry since 1989 for exactly that reason, leading them to conclude that “Urgent corrective action is required.”

HOME SALES FALL More bad news for local homebuilders like Dowling, Maui Land & Pine and A&B: In 2006, according to the Realtors Association of Maui (and a Jan. 9 Pacific Business News story) just 1,088 single-family homes sold, which was down from 1,316 in 2005. What’s worse is that people bought 2,050 Maui condos in 2005, but only 1,210 in 2006. In addition, the median price of a single-family stood in December at a paltry $632,500—a mere fraction of the December 2005 price of $722,500, though the median condo price did rise $70,000 to $472,500 during the same period. Of course, working people still can’t afford a home here, which means builders will still be raking in some of that big money. MTW



Sea Trial Who will win: Hawaii Superferry or four state senators? This week, shipbuilder Austal USA will launch the first of two 353-foot aluminum catamaran ferries in Mobile, Alabama for a series of open sea trials. They will deliver the first vessel to Hawaii Superferry in early spring. Also this week, the state Legislature begins its 2007 session. Four outerisland state senators will be sponsoring legislation to require an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) before the inter-island fast-ferry venture commences, currently projected for this summer. Maui’s Shan Tsutsui has taken the lead in crafting the bill, supported by J. Kalani English, Gary Hooser of Kauai and Russel Kokubun of the Big Island. Together they’re looking to convince fellow senators of the grave concerns voiced by their Neighbor Island constituencies. To date, Hawaii Superferry (HSF) has brazenly insisted that they don’t need to prepare an EIS. They claim that the same has not been required of cruise ships, freight carriers or of Mesa Airlines (aka, go!). True, but none of them were proposing “a whole new method of transportation between the islands.” With support from the state Department of Transportation, Governor Linda Lingle, U.S. Senator Daniel Inouye and the courts, Hawaii Superferry has steamrolled community concerns over traffic, harbor infrastructure inadequacies, invasive species and whale strikes. Until now. It’s fitting that the Maui senate delegation should take the lead on questioning whether the red-carpet treatment afforded to HSF has followed legal guidelines or represented good governance. After all, Maui was the first community to raise the red flag. Back in the fall of 2004, Maui Mayor Alan Arakawa and Planning Director Mike Foley called the DOT’s Environmental Assessment study for Kahului Harbor Improvements “inadequate.” Both called for further study of impacts through a full EIS. At the same time, hundreds of paddlers who use Kahului Harbor’s sheltered waters rallied against plans to extend Pier II into their training area and race course. Paddler Karen Chun posted the website, and garnered support from online paddlers worldwide. When it later became apparent that Young Brothers, Ltd. would be forced to forfeit much of their space to accommo-

date the massive ferry operation, she organized “Freight First” sign-waving protests on Ka`ahumanu Avenue. In recent months, public awareness of Superferry impacts has grown on Kauai and the Big Island. Both islands have launched petition drives, and Kauai conducted a “drive-in” with some 150 cars converging on Nawiliwili Harbor to model the traffic jams the ferry could create (the Superferry is capable of carrying 282 cars and nearly 900 people at a time). When Neighbor Island residents traveled to Honolulu last fall to present a petition with over 5,000 signatures, Lingle refused to meet with them. “The Hawaii Superferry has been bullying its way to service to our islands with the political help of our Republican governor and U.S. senators, over the objections of each of the three neighbor island councils in Hawaii, Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island,” said Kauai resident John Tyler Cragg, web author of Cragg called the introduction of the ferries to the Hawaiian islands “a Pandora’s box.” Cragg’s website includes a quote by American Banker/Industrialist J.P. Morgan: “A man generally has two reasons for doing a thing: one that sounds good, and a real one.” Originally proposed as a cheaper mode of travel, fuel costs have doubled in the past few years, while airfares have plummeted with the addition of go! airlines. But every so often the investment team behind Hawaii Superferry lets slip a bit of information on the real possible reason for plunging some $250 million—much of it in Title XI Maritime guaranteed loans—into this venture. Six of HSF’s 11 directors have ties to J.F. Lehman & Co., a private equity firm that has invested $71 million to date. Chairman of the Board John Lehman served as Secretary of the Navy during the Reagan administration. In March 2005 he told Pacific Business News that, “the Superferry plans to operate a Westpac Express, essentially to carry military equipment and ferry vehicles from Oahu to the Big Island on a daily basis.” This will make it easier for soldiers to train when the Stryker Brigade comes to Oahu and has to conduct training exercises on the Big Island. But why should state taxpayers fork out $40 million for statewide harbor improvements for loading ramps and barges, and much more in federal tax dollars to support a military operation? Isn’t it enough that the U.S. has already spent more than $350 billion on the War in Iraq? State funding was among the questions

raised two years ago, when Senate Bill 1785, introduced by English, sought to force Hawaii Superferry to do an EIS. Though it did not pass, it succeeded in dividing the funding appropriation into two $20 million awards. Last year, Tsutsui sought to withhold that second $20 million, and ultimately gained support in requiring the DOT and HSF to conduct three series of informational meetings throughout the islands.

Should Hawaii Superferry go belly-up, as recently happened with a similar operation in Rochester, New York, will their principals still get paid? Will taxpayers have to pay their tab?

A hostile crowd at Lihikai School last June blasted HSF and DOT officials for their secrecy over plans and refusal to prepare an EIS. The second round of required meetings shifted format dramatically, with no public testimony except for questions written on “post-it” notes which officials vowed to answer… eventually. A third meeting on Maui was recently postponed, as it fell on the eve of the 2007 legislative session, drawing criticism from English. I asked Sen. Gary Hooser how he expected to garner support from his Oahu-centric senate colleagues, who historically have kept more than their fair share of Transient Accommodations Tax, federal transportation funds and harbor improvement dollars. He said he would rely on personal relationships, respect, values and the support for an EIS by three County Councils. Another glimmer of hope appeared last month. That’s when Judge Joel August reversed an earlier decision, allowing Maui Tomorrow, Kahului Harbor Coalition and the County of Maui legal

standing in their challenge to the adequacy of the environmental assessment of harbor improvements as well as the 2025 harbor master plan. DOT has conceded that harbor use has outpaced the master plan and current infrastructure, and has begun work on a 2030 master plan. Paddler Chun attended one of the recent 2030 planning sessions, and told me she was shocked that DOT was seeking dock space for three cruise ships. Harbor usage has already been strained over the past few years, as Norwegian Cruise Lines visits have increased from one to three ships. Time in port has also increased, from 35 to 105 hours weekly. Their 900foot long vessels carry 2,000 visitors and 700 crewmembers. Hawaii Superferry has avoided an EIS as if it were kryptonite. Yet, citizens continue to ask questions like What would prevent Oahu residents from plundering Neighbor Island reserves of fish, opihi, maile, and limu? What about transport of stolen goods and drugs? Will the Superferry kill whales? HSF developed its much-touted Whale Avoidance Policy in accordance with the Humpback Whale Sanctuary Advisory Council (SAC) and gained their support in 2005. Since then, HSF has hired SAC Chairman Terry O’Halloran as their fulltime spokesperson, a rather obvious conflict of interest. HSF Executive Vice-President Terry White is also a SAC member, and a former VP of operations of American Hawaii Cruises, which required a taxpayer bailout on $366 million in Federal Maritime Loan Guarantees—the same funding source now being used to build the two ships at an estimated cost of $190 million. John Garibaldi, HSF’s CEO previously served as chief financial officer for Hawaiian Airlines, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2003. Garibaldi sought compensation for stock options, and the Honolulu Advertiser reported in 2004 that Garibaldi had a note due in 2006 worth $286,465. Should Hawaii Superferry go belly-up, as recently happened with a similar operation in Rochester, New York, will their principals still get paid? Will taxpayers have to pay their tab? This much is clear: the refusal to abide by state and federal laws requiring a full EIS appears wrong and potentially harmful. HSF has said just give us all our approvals and funding and we’ll address the impacts afterwards. That is exactly the opposite of what state law (Hawaii Revised Statutes 343, to be exact) requires—full review of potential impacts before any approvals. MTW

Not a Single Drop

Hell of a Tie


County wins, loses hearing on controversial Hamakuapoko pipelines Looks like the county gets its Hamakuapoko pipeline after all. On Jan. 10, Judge Joseph Cardoza denied a motion for the County of Maui to stop work on pipelines to the contaminated and highly controversial wells. But he did make clear that the County couldn’t use the water for human consumption and that any new plans for the pipe would need a full environmental assessment. “The county... will face ruinous financial consequences for stopping work,” county attorney Jane Lovell said. “We are putting the pipe in the ground because it is—in essence— cheaper [than stopping construction].” Issac Hall, the attorney representing plaintiffs The Coalition to Protect East Maui Water Resources, Hui Alanui o Makena and Mark Sheehan disagreed. “We felt compelled to ask the county to stop work,” Hall said. “The court’s never gotten any evidence, no financial documents, that indicate that [it would be cheaper].” Judge Cardoza made note of the fact that the county would soon have a new water director. The discrepancy over past agreements began with outgoing director George Tengan last September when he testified in a Board of Water Supply meeting that the county would use the pipelines to tap East Maui water supplies for use in Central Maui sometime in the future. Hall held that the county was violating the 2003 consent decree by not submitting a new environmental assessment on the matter. Lovell countered that the Tengan quote was taken out of context, and that the county was acting lawfully in completing the construction.

After the court hearing, both sides expressed satisfaction with the judge’s decision. “I am very pleased that he denied the motion,” Lovell said. “If there are community concerns we would like to address them.” “I’m happy that he has basically said that no one can use the wells,” Hall said. “They are going to waste money on installing the pipes... but the pipes are not

Most attorneys who go to court dress pretty bland. But not Wailuku criminal defense attorney David Cain. On the morning of Jan. 4, 2007, Cain got up and put on a pretty dull black suit, which he then enlivened with a bright necktie displaying a bold, splashy image of a martini. For district court, the tie may have been too much. But this morning, Cain was headed off to defend his client Life’s a Beach in Kihei before the Liquor Control Board of Adjudication. There he met Glenn Kunitake, a member of the Adjudication Board who on the morning of Jan. 4 did not put on a bright necktie displaying a splashy image of anything. Hawaii National Bank’s VP/Regional Manager with three decades in the financial industry, Kunitake is a past member of the county’s Kula Agricultural Park Committee and the county Board of Variances and Appeals.

going to be used.” Judge Cardoza concluded that the defendants would have time to agree to the decision, though if they couldn’t reach an agreement they would need to go back to court. Lovell said the water department was “fully prepared to comply.” MTW

Kunitake and the board really went after Life’s a Beach. Not only did they fine the popular dive bar $2,000 for one count of serving booze to an off-duty employee who was allegedly already drunk—$1,000 more than Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Scott Hanono requested—but then Kunitake lectured Cain after the board rendered its judgment. “I know you’re in charge of training,” Kunitake said. “This is a very serious violation. This type of violation, the way it transpired, needs to be avoided at all costs.” Cain sat there humbly during the tongue-lashing. His client had pled no contest to the charge, so it wasn’t like there was much of a defense to offer, though he did use the word “obviously” too many times. “Obviously this case kind of slipped through the cracks,” he had told the board earlier that morning, adding that management had fired the drunken employee and reprimanded the bartender and server on duty that night. “Obviously she [the employee in question] has some problems and some liquor issues to deal with… Obviously we’re one of the bigger establishments on the island in terms of serving.” As far as defenses go, it was pretty fair. The board just didn’t buy it. Who knows— maybe it was the tie.

More than 400 people reportedly showed up at the big Jan. 8 lovefest at the Kihei Community Center on the proposed for-profit Malulani hospital in South Maui. At least one of them accused state Senator Roz Baker—virtually the only local official who hasn’t yet planted a big wet one on the hospital—of being in the pocket of the Maui Memorial Medical Center and maybe even taking campaign contributions from them. Baker denied taking any such money, pointing out that such contributions would be illegal since MMMC is technically a government agency, but the issue of money influencing political voices on Malulani is a good one. Case in point is Governor Linda Lingle, who captured the hearts of Malulani supporters by asking Baker and the rest of the state Legislature to grant Malulani—and Plano, Texas-based Triad Hospitals, which would actually run the medical center—a special exemption from the current state laws governing new hospital approval. But hospital backers don’t seem bothered by the fact that Lingle has taken thousands of dollars from Malulani Health Systems officer Pardee Erdman, who is also the chairman and CEO of the Ulupalakua Ranch. In fact, Erdman gave Lingle $500 as recently as May 16, 2005—a month after corporate filings show Erdman joined the Malulani board.

WEDNESDAY, Jan. 10 Like many Americans tonight, I found myself watching President George W. Bush’s big speech on the ongoing hilarity that is the Iraq War. Not because I was curious as to what he might say—all week the papers have been reporting that he’d announce the sending of another 20,000 troops to the fighting—but because Bush is just fascinating to watch, like that one kid in high school who never read the assigned book but now has to bluff his way through an oral report on it in front of the whole class. Now I don’t see why all these Democrats and critics are saying the speech doesn’t represent a new war strategy, when Bush very clearly articulated a new way out of the Iraq morass: by attacking Iran and Syria! No, hear me out— what better way to take pressure off our troops in Iraq than by bombing the hell out of Iran and Syria? And


in real terms than his counterpart 25 years ago, even though overall productivity has risen much faster.”

we could use nuclear weapons, too—what possible bad could come of that? I mean, yes, those countries could respond by invading Iraq and making our troops’ lives even more hellish, but the only analysts putting forward that theory are those who insisted back in 2003 that invading and occupying Iraq was going to be a disaster. What do those people know anyway?

SATURDAY, Jan. 13 Man, wasn’t that Tsunami Watch last night just hilarious? And that time when the National Weather Service suddenly issued a Tsunami Warning— meaning a potentially islanddrenching wave was on its way and it was time to start seeking high ground—only to pull back a couple minutes later and say it was a mistake? Man, that rocked! We should do that every week.

THURSDAY, Jan. 11 Big story in today’s Honolulu Star-Bulletin about 2nd District Congresswoman Mazie Hirono. Though the story could have been written about any incoming freshman—“First-term lawmakers have to know their place in the Capitol pecking order”—it does provide some background on her Washington background, law school experience at Georgetown and the fact that, being a freshman back-bencher in the U.S. House of Representatives means she’ll be lucky if she gets a chance to speak during committee hearings. “Pay attention and keep quiet,” is how political scientist Ted Carmine sums up her next two years in the story. If only our president had gotten such advice six years ago. Who am I kidding—people should be telling him that right now.

FRIDAY, Jan. 12 Since Hawai`i is so often at the bottom of those national rankings (school test scores, homeless population, etc.), we should probably all celebrate that our lovely state landed right smack in the middle of a state-by-state study of average weekly income. According to today’s Honolulu Advertiser, U.S. Department of Labor statistics show the average worker in the state makes $704 a week, or $36,608 a year before taxes. That’s the 26th highest average wage in all 50 states plus the District of Columbia. What’s even worse is that the stats show that worker income here isn’t keeping pace with that of the Mainland, though at least one local economist doesn’t believe

SUNDAY, Jan. 14

Star-Bulletin to Hirono: “keep quiet”

this can continue. “The gap can’t get too far because people will start to leave for the Mainland,” University of Hawai`i economist Steven La Croix told the Advertiser. This is true, though rather depressing when you think about the fact that American worker income has been largely stagnant for the last few years. “After you adjust for inflation, the wages of the typical American worker—the one at the very middle of the income distribution—have risen less than 1% since 2000,” reported the esteemed magazine The Economist on June 15, 2006. “In the previous five years, they rose over 6%.” This is hardly new. “But every measure shows that, over the past quarter century, those at the top have done better than those in the middle, who in turn have outpaced those at the bottom,” The Economist piece continued. “The gains of productivity growth have become increasingly skewed… Put another way, the typical worker earns only 10% more

As if we didn’t all know this was coming, today the StarBulletin reported that U.S. Senator Daniel Akaka (D, Hawai`i) will soon reintroduce his Native Hawaiian Recognition Act. This is fantastic—it’s a bill that just won’t die. C-SPAN ought to do a reality show on this thing, following it as it meanders its way through Congress. This season, will the Democrats manage to get it out of the Senate’s Indian Affairs Committee? Will it come up for a vote? What will Bush do when it reaches his desk? Will he sign or veto it? Does he even know Hawai`i is part of the U.S.? Hell, I’d tune in.

MONDAY, Jan. 15 It’s been two years since a devastating Indian Ocean tsunami killed a few hundred thousand people and local civil defense officials announced they would redouble efforts to make sure that never happened here, and yet this weekend the Star-Bulletin somehow managed to report that there are still 148 places around the state that need doomsday sirens but don’t yet have them. The story says Maui County alone needs 38 sirens in such obscure places as Kihei, Hana, Kahului, Lahaina, Kaluakoi and Menele. A big reason for the gaps in coverage? “For one, officials said the state has not been able to keep up with housing developments,” said the story.

You know, that makes perfect sense. We’re building new neighborhoods without corresponding increases in road, water or sewer construction, so why should we expect the state to add in new warning sirens? Anthony Pignataro has created many reality shows in his career, including the critically acclaimed Violation! The Life and Times of a Hoboken Meter Maid.

Condoms are proving such an attractive target for shoplifters, according to Phoenix’s Arizona Republic, that some stores are putting them in locked display cases that require a customer to call a clerk for help. However, as an official of the Arizona Public Health Association pointed out, condoms are a purchase that consumers choose to make in low profile. A spokesperson for a condom maker mentioned a recent incident in a CVS pharmacy in which a clerk, assisting a customer, shouted several times, “Who’s got the key to the condoms?”



Buddy, a 6-year-old German shepherd mix, wandered into the emergency room at the Kaiser Permanente Hospital in Bellflower, Calif., in October after having just been hit by a car, and he resisted efforts to remove him, apparently waiting until someone attended to his injured hind leg (which turned out to be broken), according to local animal control officials interviewed by the Whittier Daily News. Owner Fabian Ortega was called (by virtue of Buddy’s implanted microchip), and a vet fixed him up.

In October, a judge of Scotland’s Greencock Sheriff Court released Hui Yu, a college student from Beijing, from a traffic charge by disregarding two police officers’ identification of Hui. Said the judge, “[A]ll Chinese people can look the same to a native Scot. It’s only when you have time to look that you begin to see the differences.” And the chairman of the Canadian Broadcasting Corp., Guy Fournier, resigned in September after giving an interview to a French magazine in which he expounded on, as The Associated Press put it, “the joys of bowel movements.”

UNCLEAR ON THE CONCEPT National Public Radio reported in October that perhaps thousands of prison inmates are using cell phones (which are contraband in all correctional facilities). The problem has gotten so bad that Maryland state Sen. Ed DeGrange said he was sitting at his desk recently when an inmate called him on a cell phone with a list of general complaints. Also, a warden in Texas reported getting a call from the



LEAST COMPETENT CRIMINALS An unidentified man fled after an unsuccessful attempt at robbing a Git-N-Go convenience store in Des Moines, Iowa, in December, which was foiled when the clerk noticed that the “gunman’s” thumb was visible from his pocket, where he was holding his hand to pretend he had a gun. The clerk said he actually had to argue with the man, who continued to insist that it was a gun in his pocket. Said clerk Terry Cook later, “I know what a gun looks like.” MTW

JANUARY 18, 2007



t was my first Christmas party of the year and everyone was dressed to the nines.We all mingled, exchanging the familiar merrymaking pleasantries. Our attire and surroundings were festive, but the occasional strained conversation made it apparent that the holidays were an uncomfortable time for some. As the night rolled on, the mixture of champagne and Christmas lights seemed to make things livelier. But despite the jovial turn, I couldn’t help noticing my friend Jack.


JANUARY 18, 2007


He appeared more restless than usual. At one point, Jack—not his real name— grabbed my hand. “Dance with me!” he said. “Tomorrow is never promised.” He turned up the music, twirled me around and closed his eyes while dancing like a mad man. I watched as Jack swayed back and forth, trying to immerse himself deeply in the music, reaching for a place only he knew. It wasn’t until later that I understood the depth of what he was struggling with. Later Jack disappeared. Walking around

the party, I noticed a strange smell coming from one room. Entering, I saw Jack holding a lighter under a piece of tin foil while sucking in smoke from a small cylinder. “This is what we call chasing the dragon, girl,” he said. I watched as his eyelids got heavy and his speech slowed. “It’s OxyContin,” he said. “Some people would kill for this shit.”


he U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) considers OxyContin one of the most abused pharmaceutical drugs in Hawai`i. Rising demand has considerably hiked its street price.A single 80 mg pill can cost up to $20. Here on the islands it is reported that individuals usually get it through illegal sales from healthcare professionals and workers.“Doctor shopping”— obtaining a few different prescriptions from different doctors—is also popular. “People often try to self-medicate,” said Barbara Ann Keller, Maui Drug Court administrator. “People seem to be diagnosing themselves and then prescribing the medicine they think they need, making ourselves our own pharmacists.We can see these drugs on the television or in a magazine and then we can go to our doctor and tell him that we want it.We are actually telling our physicians now our own diagnosis.This is somewhat of the norm now; it is actually wild when you think about it.”

Chief Tom Phillips of the Maui Police Department agreed that there is a problem here on Maui. “This has been around for awhile,” he said. “We see that it is sometimes connected to other things such as meth, cocaine or alcohol.We also see a lot of heroin addicts using it. People are trying to change their prescriptions from five to 50 but in one way or another they are reported or getting caught.” According to Captain Gerald Matsunaga of the Maui PD’s Vice Division,“It’s not as big of a problem as our Ice epidemic but we do see the Ice heads using it as a downer or to sleep.” OxyContin is a strong narcotic similar to morphine. Sometimes it’s referred to as Hillbilly heroin, OC’s, Oxycoffins or Killers. Friends have told me they’ve snorted it, becoming dependent on its opiates.What’s more, I had also lost an old crony to it last spring. He had injured his back on the job, overdosed and died in his sleep. OxyContin is the trade name for the drug oxycodone hydrochloride, which is manufactured by Purdue Pharma. It was created to treat the chronic pain associated with serious back injuries as well as cancer. It’s a controlled-release tablet known to provide symptomatic relief for up to 12 hours. Because of this controlled-release formula, the drug was initially never considered a threat for abuse. Purdue Pharma designed it to be taken orally and swallowed whole, not snorted, injected or smoked. But once the controlled release mechanism is tampered with, lethal doses of oxycodone are released immediately causing a rush similar to heroin. “The safety of the drug is based on taking the drug exactly as intended,” says Deborah Leiderman, M.D., the director of the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) controlled substance staff. Today, the DEA classifies oxycodone as a Schedule II controlled substance.This “sched-

ule” is based on the drug’s potential for abuse. Once it acquires such a label, the drug enters a formal system requiring the manufacturer to provide security at the factory as well as regular reports to the DEA. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) now considers OxyContin to have a high probability of abuse. Other drugs with similar potential for abuse include morphine, codeine,Vicodin and Demerol. The FDA says long-term use of OxyContin can lead to addiction and that a large single dose can cause respiratory failure or a fatal drug overdose. Last year the medical journal Pain Physician evaluated OxyContin misuse. In the review, titled “Prescription Drug Abuse:What is being done to address this New Drug Epidemic?” author Laxmaiah Manchikanti, MD found disconcerting results. From 1997 to 2004, according to Manchikanti, there was a 6,390 percent increase in sales of oxycodone, a 568 percent increase in the nonmedical use of OxyContin and a 129 percent increase in opioid-related deaths not connected to heroin. It gets worse. According to the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, within the past year, 5.5 percent of high school sophomores reported using OxyContin. In addition, the office says most abusers tend to be over 30 years old, while young adult users aged 18-30 are a growing problem.The U.S. Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration supports that claim, saying that “young adults aged 18-25 tended to have the highest rate of non-medical use in the past year.” Prescription drug addiction has also reached into the world of high-profile personalities. In 2003 talk-radio leviathan Rush Limbaugh famously admitted to being addicted to pain medication. His former housekeeper told the press that she would supply

him with OxyContin, Lorcet and hydrocodone. “You know how this stuff works,” he said in an email quoted in the New York Daily News, “the more you get used to it, the more it takes.”


hen I asked my pal Jack how he obtained his OxyContin supply, he said simply, “Oh, you know. A friend of a friend of a friend.” He explained how one of his acquaintances would find a physician that would prescribe pills for various ailments such as “back problems, cramps, or anxiety” and that he would get his drugs from him. “When I’m in a total void of despair and I can feel the weight of the world, it’s like a warm hug from your mother that makes everything melt away,” Jack said. “I don’t have to keep crying inside. I know this is all delusional but somehow it helps me through it.” He told me that he had social anxieties and neurosis, “like everyone else,” and that he used it to self-medicate. I asked Jack to tell me what he normally felt like after coming down. “You pay for it the next day,” he said. “I usually feel like I’ve been punched all over my whole body. “It can eat at you, it can rob you,” he continued. “It will rob you of your bankroll and relationships, of moments.You could be watching the most beautiful sunset in the world and all you can think about is getting your fix. It definitely imprisons you.” I watched my friend as he talked to me about this socially acceptable and easily accessible drug. I wondered whether he would make it through as I listened to his justifications. “You know it’s all geographical, I didn’t use this until I moved here,” he finally said. “I’m leaving and I’ll stop. I’m just trying to feel comfortable about being alive. But then again, these are all just crack-head ways of rationalizing my choices.” MTW

‘We Must Outback’ A sordid tale of juicy steak Sometimes I get all carnivore and crave blood and flesh. Don’t get me wrong, I eat a lot of tofu and veggies, but there are those times (usually when I’m experiencing PMS of rabies-like proportions) that I need to eat something that lived, breathed and died a horrible death for my consumption. Heartless? No doubt. But I’m a firm believer that going out for a bleeding steak is a lot better than morphing vampire-style on a herd of preschoolers. The blood lust is strong, Master, strong. The other night was one of those nights. “I need steak,” I said to my husband. “So cook one,” he replied. “No,” I said as I headed downstairs to strap the baby into his car seat. “Buying a $3 steak isn’t worthy. This is a holy craving. We must sacrifice. We must Outback.” He looked over at me. My eyes turned into pools of black magic and I let my head spin around a few times. He put down his magazine. “You’re serious, aren’t you?” “I do not jest about food,” I

droned in a creepy monotone. He sighed the I-married-a-lunatic sigh and drove me from Pukalani to Kihei in about 15 minutes. He was clearly a little nervous being in an enclosed space with me while I was having one of my fits. The baby did look rather juicy. By the time we were seated, I was ready to pass out during our hour-long wait for a table. Finally we sat at a booth with a bunch of beer-drenched cardboard coasters left on the table. The baby thought they were rather tasty teething biscuits. The waiter scribbled our order down and rushed off before I could add on the Bloomin’ Onion. I love the Bloomin’ Onion. It’s so greasy and zesty. I was willing to pay $8 for the damn thing, and he just left without completing my order. Off with his head! “You want me find the waiter and add it on?” asked my Good Husband. “No. I guess it wasn’t in my destiny tonight.” Sulk, sulk, pout. This pissed my husband off big time. Luckily for me, he is wise enough to channel his frustration at my lousy attitude onto something else. In this case, the unsuspecting Outback waiter. “I’m gonna [expletive deleted] stiff that guy,” he said. It was a noble attempt on his part to


make things right for me, but it’s kind of like the death penalty—what good is it gonna do now? I still don’t have my Bloomin’ Onion. Might as well give the guy his $7. The food came, but the service didn’t really improve. My water remained empty, as did the hubbie’s Coke. Petty? Sure, but I’m PMS-ing, remember? I had the nine-ounce Victoria’s center cut filet topped with bleu cheese. It was heavenly, but then again it was almost $30, so it better be good. That piece of meat meant I have to eat packaged oatmeal for every meal for the next week. The husband had the shrimp-topped Caesar salad. He didn’t say much about it. He was busy brooding about the serv-

ice and pondering whether he should leave a dollar or nothing at all at the end of the night. We opted out of dessert, though from past experience, the dessert there is pretty yummy. The reality of it is that we’re both cheapskates and wanted to get out of there for under $50. McDonald’s does have dollar sundaes, you know. After wolfing down my steak, the beast inside of me quieted down and took a nap. I tried to convince the hubby that we should tip regardless of the lame-o service. I mean, they were packed. He didn’t buy it, though I did stop him from writing, “you suck” under the tip. That would have been childish. MTW

A Staggering Work of Extraordinary Stills Friday (Jan. 19), 6:30-9 p.m. at The Quan Gallery [PHOTO RECEPTION/FUNDRAISER] In her press release’s “artist statement,” Californiabased photographer, Kierstein A. Stein, says that her tagline—“It’s in the still that we can experience the extraordinary”—most closely illustrates her approach to life as a voyeur and participant. “On the flip side,” she adds, “I love the raw… the real of life and find that without contrast life is a bit boring.” So here’s your chance to come meet this self-proclaimed introverted voyeur with a penchant for embracing “intimate distance.” Or come because, like Stein, you are drawn into “things that do not wave a flag, but sparkle and dance in their own right… like what most would consider invisible.” Come to raise funds for EQCA— California’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender civil rights and advocacy organization. Come for the cocktails, pupu, other surprises and giveaways. Come to schmooze with artists and their groupies. Whatever the reason, just come. The Quan Gallery is located at 900 Front St. in Lahaina. For more info call 667-2757. [SAMANTHA CAMPOS]

ThIS WEEK’S PICKS by Samantha Campos


‘Midnight Rider’

Thursday (Jan. 18), 7:30 p.m. at McCoy Studio Theater

Friday (Jan. 19), 7:30 p.m. at the Castle Theater

[COMEDY] Marga Gomez is an award-winning actress/writer/comedian from New York. In her latest show, “A Line Around the Block,” presented by Coconut Cabaret, Gomez dishes on family life. Erase those Ozzie & Harriet images from your mind—this one involves a Cuban comedian, a Puerto Rican belly dancer, their lesbian spawn and the good ole American Dream in NY’s barrio. Tickets: $20, with a portion of the proceeds to benefit Maui AIDS Foundation. Call 242-7469.


[ROCK] Greg Allman is primarily known for being one of the founding members of The Allman Brothers Band. If you are a fan of the band, you probably also know Greg Allman has been pursuing his solo career since the 1970’s as well. The Nashville-born musician helped usher in the genre of southern rock during the ‘70s as well, both with solo records and Allman Brothers Band albums. His style remains largely unchanged after all these years. Did you know he was married to Cher from 1975 until 1979? They even recorded an album together entitled Two the Hard Way. Rolling Stone magazine had this to say about it, “It’s hard to image a more inappropriate combination.” To Allman’s credit, he has long since departed from Cher and continues to make the music he does best. Tickets: $45, $55, $65. Call 242-7469. [KEITH BENEDICT]

Holy `Ola!

Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets: $10 per day, $15 for both days, keiki free. Kamehameha is located at 260 A`apueo Parkway off Haleakala Hwy.

ALO-ha at the Rock Sunday (Jan. 21), 9 p.m. at Hard Rock Café [FOLK/ROCK/BENEFIT] Animal Liberation Orchestra visits Maui with a surprising gig at the Hard Rock, at the same time the Café gets a re-do on their extensive memorabilia collection. And hey, this is only, like, the third time I’ve heard of anyone playing there besides Marty Dread. You may remember California-based ALO, from the MACC’s Kokua Festival perhaps, with their folksy, mellow, easyto-listen-and-sway-to sound. Jack Johnson’s even made special appearances to play along with them for “Girl, I Wanna Lay You Down” off their latest album, Fly Between Falls—which, actually, makes sense since the band is currently signed to Johnson’s label, Brushfire Records. Anyway, Monday ALO will make the hop over to the Honolulu Hard Rock for the finale of the Junior Pro Surf Championship. That way, you can see them twice, if you’re that d e t e r m i n e d .

The Clancys, Evans & Doherty Wednesday (Jan. 24), 8 p.m. at Charley’s [CELTIC MUSIC] Okay, so I’m not Irish. I do like beer, leprechauns, red hair and Celtic music, though. Maybe I could become an honorary Irishman? Does Scottish blood count? Anyway, Irish or not, this weekend I’ll be heading over to Paia for “Irish Music Legends”—a night of some seriously authentic Irish music. Aofie Clancy, Bobby O‘Connell and Evan’s and Doherty will be rocking the house along with a very special “mystery guest.” Both Clancy and O’Connell were born and raised in Ireland and began performing at a young age. Both are celebrated musicians. O’Connell has even been hailed a “National Treasure” by one of Ireland’s top music magazines. As for Evans and Doherty—they’ve been hip on the East Coast music scene for over 20 years, which is almost as long as I’ve been alive. Psych. For more on the mystery guest, you’ll have to check out the show. Tickets: $25 at the door. Call 579-9453. [STARR TENDO]

The Banality of Evil Nick Cassavetes tells the tale of Jesse James Hollywood Here’s a different take on the docudrama format. Writer/director Nick Cassavetes (The Notebook) dives headfirst into the true story of a group of Southern California rich kids that goofed their way into kidnapping and sudden violence in the August of 2000. With a dream cast of the youngest and brightest actors of the day, Cassavetes creates a movie that feels like you’re watching an apathetic group of kids riding down a progressively steeper incline in an unmanned vehicle.

Alpha Dog

★★★★★ Rated R/117 mins.

The alpha dog of the film’s title is bully drug dealer Johnny Truelove (based on the real life Jesse James Hollywood) whose outsized ego gets taken down a peg by Jake Mazursky (Ben Foster) a local junkie who aggressively refuses to pony up the $1000 he owes. Johnny (Emile Hirsch—Lords of Dogtown) haphazardly kidnaps Jake’s younger brother Zack (Anton Yelchin), and has the immature kid spirited away from the San Fernando Valley to Palm Springs thinking Jake will automatically pay up. As days pass, everyone

but Johnny and his indebted lackey Elvis (Shawn Hatosy) underestimate the depth of the imminent trouble ahead. Sharon Stone adds a touch of virtuosity to the already strong ensemble performances in this precisely drawn lineage of a true crime. The milieu of So Cal white teen thugs is an exasperating phenomenon that eluded director Barbara Kopple (Harlan County USA) in her spastic film Havoc due to some gross miscasting and an underdeveloped and exploitative script that banked on shock value over narrative depth. Cassavetes avoids these transparent land mines by exploring the reality of the film’s unsupervised teens while intercutting documentary-styled interviews with parents of the protagonist (Zack) and the prime antagonist (Johnny). Bruce Willis gives a believably irreverent performance as Johnny’s criminally savvy dad Sonny, and his character’s background involvement in the story informs much of the subtext of Johnny’s narcissistic behavior. Willis, who made a splash in a similarly minor but crucial role in last year’s Fast Food Nation, strikes a perfect balance of deception and cruelty that opens up a place for Johnny’s lurking violence to resonate from. For her part as Olivia Mazursky, Jake and Zack’s violated mother, Sharon Stone daringly exposes an intellectual and emotional weakness that is devastating to behold. Stone’s direct-to-camera monologue near the end of the movie is a breathtaking zinger of humility and humanity that puts a lump in your throat while con-

This is so So Cal

textualizing the aftermath of her son’s crisis. It also shows heretofore-unseen acting chops that put Sharon Stone in a class with the Meryl Streeps of the world. Alpha Dog is a topical docudrama that errs on the side of dramatic license. Johnny Truelove is impressive for his ferocious skill at dominating those around him with humiliation and intimidation that makes Dick Cheney look like a rank amateur. Emile Hirsch’s smallish stature adds to Johnny’s Napoleonic complex that permeates the story and provides an undertow of subtext that lingers in the viewer’s

mind after the closing credits have rolled. Cassavetes was allowed access to legal files from prosecuting attorneys with the idea that giving greater exposure to the story might aid in capturing Johnny Truelove who until recently was still at large although his four accomplices were convicted not long after the incident occurred. As such, the movie comes with an added amount of social baggage and daringness on Cassavetes’ part to take responsibility for a film that could set off a firestorm of legal battles for him personally. There is always another alpha dog. MTW

Aloha, Hapa’s


Our largest live music nightclub closes its doors for good When I first heard the news, I was shocked. Maui’s largest live music nightclub would close its doors on Jan. 13. Although this is a common fate for many nightclubs on Maui, Hapa’s has been a successful venue— with typical but not tragic ups and downs—for 12 years. Hapa’s is the only place famed Hawaiian musician Willie K has opted to play on a weekly basis. It’s the only venue with a regular night that caters to Maui’s gay community. Its weekly “ladies night,” as well as other nights featuring DJs, live local music and imported acts of every imaginable genre, consistently filled up the expansive yet accessible bar and club. But now I’m sitting inside a darkened Hapa’s before it opens for its final night. Workers dart between the main and satellite bars and tables, setting up décor and making idle chatter, and it seems as though it’s business as usual. And yet, looking out at the empty dance floor with its overhanging tinsel ornaments and disco ball, I get a little wistful. This is where I’ve seen the Brazilian Girls, Lyrics Born, DJ’s Mark Farina and Q-bert, Pepper and Men of Las Vegas. I wonder how Hapa’s closing will affect the already limited entertainment scene on Maui. “We’re not done, we’re just moving,” says Gus Hoeft, the owner. “Only the new location is going be more of a classy establishment, with a strictly enforced dress code. It’s all about the

atmosphere but it won’t be stiff.” Hoeft assures me the new club, which will likely be in Ma`alaea, will still house the same kinds of entertainment that has helped make Hapa’s so successful. Willie K is still going to be there. Ultra Fabulous Tuesdays—gay night—will also be in effect. But the new joint, to be named “Club MG,” will also feature a restaurant with live Hawaiian music during dinner. After dinner, it becomes the late night venue with a similar format to Hapa’s. If all goes as planned, Hoeft says it’ll open Feb. 12. “That’s the Chinese New Year,” he says, smiling. “Year of the Boar! We’ll have red carpet for the opening, with Willie K headlining and a couple of fire dancers.” Hoeft said he was just as surprised by the closing of Hapa’s as everybody else. He says the club was doing well but was renting their space month-to-month.

Apparently, when it came time to renew their lease, the landlord decided to give it to somebody “with deeper pockets.” Hoeft says he found out about the sudden change from the new owner, not the landlord.

“I wondered why—I looked at myself and said, ‘What did I do to deserve this?’” he says. “I’ve struggled with how to pay bills, how to get promotions, how to get people in the door. I’ve paid back the debts of former owners, then I was treated like this. Honesty and fairness is how I run things. I felt like this was a set-up.” Hapa’s original owners—business men


JANUARY 18, 2007


Hoeft calls “three of the most intelligent people I know”—opened the club at Lipoa Street 12 years ago. They intended to operate it as Maui’s only brew house at the time, but like a dissolving marriage, the management dispersed a few years later. Hoeft, who opened the club as a doorman, took over and beefed up its nighttime format. “I consider everyone who goes to Hapa’s part of my family,” he says. “I’ve seen kids grow up here—they used to come to Teen Night and now they’re here for regular club nights. Every musician in Hawai`i has played here— Eric Gilliom with the Project, Hapa, Keili`i Reichel, Fiji, Kapena, Amy Gilliom, even Prince with Willie K… Musicians loved to play here ‘cause the stage is so close to the patrons, and they get that interaction. “Hapa’s is a dynasty,” he adds. “It’s been there, it’s been done—it’s been successful. But it’s been at the same level for a while now. It needs to go to a different level—to step up and do something else. The name change is part of that—it has to have its own identification. “I won’t miss the landlord,” Hoeft says. “But I will miss the warmth of our clientele. Everybody has been so supportive. I think that all the promoters, the DJ’s, the bands—especially our clientele—made Hapa’s what it is. But they need the change also. I think that it’s going to be very successful, and very exciting. I’m not worried at all. Everything will work out.” Hoeft smiles. “Or, I hope so anyway. ‘Cause in four years I’m gonna run for mayor.” He laughs. “No, don’t say that.” MTW

How are your New Year’s resolutions going? Let’s say you already fell off the wagon, or perhaps even under it. Never fear, because this week is actually the ideal time to put into effect any big changes for 2007. The New Moon in your sign makes all your best intentions far more likely to succeed than they were half a month ago. I didn’t mention it before, because why screw up your practice run? Now that you know what you did wrong the first time, you can try again—this time without the same mistakes.

PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) Of all the signs, you Pisces are generally the luckiest in love. That’s not to say you feel lucky. You’re not even especially fortunate; love, after all, is hard, full of missteps, and rife with pain for even the most charmed would-be lovers. If you look at things objectively, you’ll probably discover that many (perhaps even most) of your friends are much lonelier than you. Now that you’ve finally realized that, the only question is: what are you going to do about it?


in Maui Time

Yoki s


You don’t cope with rejection especially well, Aries. Although you’re getting better at rolling with it when someone gives you the boot, it still takes longer to heal your psychic bruises than it should. This week, work on your spiritual healing factor. You need to become an emotional Wolverine because, as usual, you’re going to have to wade through a virtual war zone to get to the good stuff. If you arrive battered and still bleeding, you won’t be in a position to notice or appreciate the sweethearts who await— nor will they, particularly, appreciate you.

MAILING 33 N. Market St. Ste. 201 Wailuku, HI 96793

I don’t run my life by astrology—but I do pay attention to it, and when convenient, I work it into my activities. For instance, when starting new projects, I aim for the week immediately following a New Moon (the best time to begin things), and I avoid making major decisions or purchases when the Moon is void-of-course (between signs). However, I also recognize that even if something’s not begun at the ideal time, it can still succeed; it might simply require more effort. Your timing’s off. But don’t give up. You just need to put in that extra energy to make things run smoothly, until you’re back on track—which, incidentally, won’t be long now.

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) The next time someone asks you if you want to hear the good news or bad news first, choose the good news and skip the bad news. You’re probably better off not knowing. Too much of the bad news you’ve been hearing lately is about stuff you can do absolutely nothing about. How depressing. You’re on the edge of information overload, and the only cure is a kind of diet: confine yourself to news that’s directly relevant to your life. You’ll not only breathe easier, but you’ll be happier, too. Ignorance isn’t bliss, I don’t think, but selective knowledge just might be.

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) You think having more options will make you happier? Boy, are you wrong. Actually, having only a few choices—and not being able to question them after you make them—would make you happier, despite what you think you want. (Read Stumbling on Happiness, by Dan Gilbert, if you don’t believe me.) Here’s two steps to happiness: 1. Limit your choices. Having none sucks, but three is better than 30, or 300. 2. Don’t second guess them. Pretend they’re irrevocable. Just accept them, move on, and make the best of them. (This how people with bad tattoos still enjoy their lives.) Try my strategy for two weeks. I wager you’ll not only be happier but, ironically, also more free.

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) I think you can believe in destiny and free will, and that the two are constantly battling each other for the lion’s share of your life. The wisest people know when to fight fate and when to let things play out as they will (something which can work out better, in surprising ways, than whatever you’d originally intended). It’s always tricky figuring out when to dig in your heels and hold your ground, and when to bend and sway like a willow in the wind. This week, however, there should be clear signs which is your best bet. Heed them, won’t you?

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) Don’t deny your nature. Virgos do well with specific chunks of time that are specifically allotted for specific activities, including relaxation. In fact, it suits you right down to the ground to work insanely one week in order to relax on the beach the next (although it must be said that your version of relaxation would exhaust any non-Virgo). Trying to mix things up is trying to impose someone else’s method or strategy upon your own. I don’t know why you’d even consider that, since you’re better at this than the rest of us. Trust yourself. Your way is best, even if other people don’t understand it.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22)


33 N. Market St. Ste. 201, Wailuku

Sometimes your quest for balance leads you to be two quite different things. For instance you might be extremely chaotic in one aspect of your life, so you become obsessively organized in another, to compensate. Sometimes, however, you can’t be on both sides of a scale, and you just have to pick the spot on the spectrum that feels most “right” to you. That spot, at least in this case, is nowhere near the middle. Don’t sell yourself short by settling for some average real estate when where you actually belong is on the cutting edge.

SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) Every experienced Scorpio knows that when you’re braced for rejection, you’re more likely to experience it. There’s something about that defensive posture that just isn’t attractive, and is more likely to inspire mean-spirited, stingy emotional behavior in other people. It’s difficult, perhaps nearly impossible, to go into a potentially threatening situation with open arms and heart, unencumbered by baggage and unshielded by armor—yet that is just what this week demands of you. I wouldn’t ask this of any other sign, but if anyone can handle that, Scorpio, it’s you.

You can’t actually find everything you need on craigslist. Not because it’s not there (let’s face it, it probably is), but because you don’t actually know what you need, or what will make you happy. It’s almost certainly something (or someone) you haven’t dared to imagine yet, so doing an online search for it is quite impossible. You don’t however, have to sit back and just wait for something to happen. Don’t expect your world to instantly be rocked (because that will only happen when you’re not braced for it). Consistently venture into the unknown, until you’re totally, totally at ease there. Once you are, you’ll find what you weren’t looking for but desperately needed.

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) This week I counsel Scorpios not to enter situations wearing all kinds of armor, because if they do, they’ll just get their asses kicked. Don’t laugh. The way you’ve entered rooms lately, with your fists raised and ready for a brawl, is just as bad. Aggression is equally as off-putting as defensiveness. I give you the same advice I give them: Relax. Enter scary situations with fists unclenched and accept whatever happens, even if it hurts like the dickens. Really living your life, right now, means embracing pain— and the joy, love, and beauty that comes with, before, after, and between.

HEIDI (shaking head): Are you kidding me? KRISTA (grimacing): Who are these Barneys? WENDY (mouth agape in horror): Whaa?? KRISTA: Ohmygosh! Okay, that guy walked up to me once and said, “Heyyyy,” and I said, “You just need to turn around and walk away,” and he was like, “Whatever!” HEIDI: None of ‘em even look mixed! They’re all white people! ANTHONY: Just like Maui! KRISTA: Okay, does she even have a bathing suit on? Okay, what are you? HEIDI (mocking): Oh, I am so totally local! Like, I am sooo da kine! ANTHONY (snorting): This is so natural. (KRISTA places hand over mouth) HEIDI: I think I saw those two fucking on Halloween. We saw a couple on the beach and my friend was like, “I’m next!” WENDY: Oh my God. This isn’t scripted? HEIDI: I haven’t seen a brown person yet. Not a Hawaiian or an Asian or a Mexican or anyone! ANTHONY: It’s frightening how eerily real this is. KRISTA: Oh, that one guy’s from here, I think. ME: Yeah, that’s Cheyne. He’s actually pretty cool. HEIDI: Oh my God. KRISTA: Ouch. HEIDI: This has only been on for five minutes and I’ve been wanting to vomit for eight. That’s how bad it is. I had a pre-emptive headache before I came in. I really regret this decision. I am ashamed to be white and on Maui. WENDY: Ohhhh. My. God. HEIDI: That guy is a tool. KRISTA: Whatever, that’s my man. HEIDI: This chick’s not even hot. KRISTA: She’s blonde. ANTHONY: Just like all women on Maui. KRISTA: My heart hurts. The thing is, I grew up on this beach and we did not do these things. HEIDI: You were not so da kine? ANTHONY: Shoots. KRISTA: It’s wrong with a capital “w” and a hard “g.” HEIDI: It’s so bad and wrong it should be a new word. Like, ba-dong! ANTHONY: Oh wait, there’s—yep, that’s the only Hawaiian you’ll see in the show. ME (looking up from notes): Did I miss it?

ANTHONY: It was that statue by the Hard Rock. [Quiet, as onscreen hook-ups commence] HEIDI: Do you think these girls go home with them ‘cause they’ve got a camera crew? ANTHONY: Hey, who let the local guy in? HEIDI: Uh oh, drunk girls in the house grinding the guys—with the lights on? JEN: Yeah, who does that? WENDY: I can’t believe they would do something like this. JEN: I can’t believe they haven’t done this before now. KRISTA: I can’t believe they’d do it without locals. ANTHONY: It’s MTV, it’s homogenized. HEIDI: I wanna know what a brown person thinks watching this show. KRISTA: If this makes us angry, what do you think it’s going to do to them? BRAD (walking in): Is that Danny Bonaduce? ANTHONY: It’s just like Laguna Beach but it’s Maui. ME: You know, maybe we acted like this, too, in our early 20’s. JEN: Yeah, but we didn’t have the lights on. ANTHONY: Well, I was white when I was young. WENDY: I never did that. KRISTA: I didn’t have the catty drama. ANTHONY: Yeah but you didn’t have the camera in your face and MTV saying, “Hey let’s put you on television,” either. JEN: The only drama when we were 20 was vomiting and passing out. ME (briefly looking up from notes): Hey, I think I lived in that house. KRISTA: I think all of us have at one time or another. [On screen, what looks to be a surf lesson is taking place] KRISTA: Oh, I feel so ill right now. Oh, my boyfriend! I hate him. “Brah! Like race? BRAH! Shoots!” Shut up. [Some guys on screen play `ukuleles during a party on Fleming Beach] ANTHONY: Here’s another rare cameo appearance of locals! That’s how you can tell it’s not Laguna Beach. KRISTA: Ick. Blasé?—What’s that chick’s name? HEIDI: Yeah, this isn’t scripted. ‘Cause I always cruise over to Flemings and nobody’s there. And hey, I think I saw her once dancing in her thong and a wife beater at Paradice Bluz. WENDY: That has to be the worst thing I’ve ever seen. HEIDI: I feel like somebody owes me a drink.
