Someone confesses to being a fan of Restless Native in Letters. Then hot chicks skin muskrats in News of the Weird. Anyone surprised that in the Maui 10, even good news for Hawaiian Telcom is bad news? Then LC Watch ties up some odds and ends. Coconut Wireless examines the mysteries of both the Aloha Airlines shutdown and something called the NHEA. And Eh Brah! just wants its Norton Commando back.

Cole Smithey says the new Colin Farrell black comedy In Bruges is actually funny. Mostly.

LETTERSTOTHEEDITOR STARR HAS A FAN! You [Starr Begley] probably get a million emails saying people like your column, but I thought I’d just add to the mix. I work at [UH’s] Hamilton Library and every time Maui Time Weekly comes in I read your [Restless Native] column to get a few laughs, even if they are silent ones (I work in the library for God’s sake!). I think you are talented and cute and I’m not a stalker or anything but I just wanted to let you know since I appreciate good local girl-style writing. Anyways, I also wondered if that was you who sold a pair of true religion mickeys on eBay (Restless Native, Mar. 27, 2008). -Jodi Hiroko Yamachika, via email

MORE FROM ROB’S FAN CLUB (The following letters are in response to Rob Parson’s Mar. 27, 2008 column “Positive Energy.”) G&R, who is building the ethanol facility on Kauai, has finally agreed, under intense pressure from the community-to not use coal or fossil fuel to produce their ethanol. And thanks Rob for pointing out how it’s the solar industry that’s been killing initiatives. But it’s not only hot water initiatives—it’s even more so regarding photo-voltaic credits and zero percent loans and other incentives. -Andy Parx, via Mauitime.com

JIMMY CARTER, DEMARCATE [sic]. His decision on Oct.24 1978, to deregulate [sic] the airline industry. This ravaged Americas [sic] air transportation system. There is a lot of good articles on the internet about it. -Michael R. Maui, via Mauitime.com Anthony Pignataro responds: My bad. Carter did begin the process of airline deregulation. Of course, my mind automatically went to Reagan because he fired 11,000 or so air traffic controllers, which led to the dismantling of American unions and generally made life such a paradise for the working man today. Next time, though, think about posting under your real name.

LIKES LOCAL FOOD It’s good to hear about the locally produced food choices on Maui (“Eat Me!” Mar. 27, 2008). Hopefully it will grow even more in the near future. I can’t wait to hear about community supported agriculture offers, subscriptions and other schemes developing there, too... Basically the idea is that you buy essentially a “share” of an organic farm’s output, and every few weeks or so, you get this box filled with tasty veggies. It’s the new hotness here [in California]. Might do real well there, too! -Gazing at the islands from Navarro Point, via Mauitime.com

NEWSOFTHEWEIRD HOT CHICKS In February Dakota Abbott, 16, edged out Samantha Phillips, 17, to become Miss Outdoors 2008 in Maryland’s Eastern Shore region’s annual beauty-contest-and-muskratskinning festival. The two were the only beauty contestants (out of eight) who entered both competitions. Abbott won her skinning division, but while she sang a song for the judges, Phillips won the talent trophy by skinning a muskrat on stage. “I’ll be honest,” she said to a Washington Post reporter. “I can’t sing. I can’t dance, and I don’t play any musical instruments.” But she took her four-inch blade, sticking it just above the tail, and sliced. “You want to take your knuckles and separate the meat from the hide, just like this,” she told the judges, with her hand inside the muskrat.

COMPELLING EXPLANATION In the 2006 take-off crash of a Comair commuter airliner at the regional airport in Lexington, Ky. (which the FAA blamed on pilot error), all 47 passengers were killed, and 21 lawsuits have been filed, with attorney William Johnson defending the only cockpit survivor (the first officer). The Lexington HeraldLeader reported in January that, in court papers filed in the lawsuits, Johnson had offered the defense that the seat-belted-in passengers should share the blame for their own deaths, in that they should have chosen other airports that might have been safer. Shortly after the newspaper report, Johnson withdrew the defense.

EXPLAINS A LOT A prominent British novelist (former winner of the prestigious Whitbread Prize) announced in January that she had won a settle-

ment of the equivalent of more than $200,000 from a shoe manufacturer in the town of Totnes because fumes from its factory so sapped her creativity that she was forced to write down-market thrillers instead of literary works. Joan Brady said numbness in her hands and legs, caused by pollutants, made her settle on simpler plotlines involving violence as she worked out her aggression toward the factory-owners.

PRIORITIES In January, a man in Citrus Heights, Calif., had a one-car accident that left him with serious head and body injuries that were perhaps exacerbated because he was not wearing a seat belt (even though the 12-pack of beer on the seat beside him was securely buckled, and survived).

GREAT MOMENTS IN MATURITY Lawyer Kathy Brewer Rentas, 49, was charged with assault in February after asking to shake hands with federal lawyer Jennifer Keane (who was prosecuting Rentas’ husband for probation violation). The handshake began in businesslike fashion, but according to a court security guard, Rentas squeezed the hand, then yanked it up and down hard, “almost pull[ing] Keene’s arm out of its socket” and nearly sending her tumbling to the ground.

CAN’T STOP MYSELF In February, a court in Cardiff, Wales, once again released Thelma Dennis, 50, to get therapy for her addiction of making bogus emergency (“999”) telephone calls, even though she has been prosecuted about 60 times in 24 years on similar charges. In an earlier case, Dennis agreed to a therapy that sent painful shocks through her body every time she dialed 999, and she remained free of problems for four years but reoffended recently by making up a bomb threat against a store.

LC Watch Odds and Ends The April 3, 2008 Liquor County Adjudication Board hearing will mark the beginning of yet another year with Donald Fujii as chairman. That means another year of Fujii calling the shots. To defendants, he’s usually curious and often asks questions (some board members rarely, if ever speak) but isn’t known for being all that sympathetic to the plight of licensees. His board colleagues “reelected” him overwhelmingly at last month’s hearing—in fact, no one even bothered to run against him. This is all fitting, considering that the April 3 board agenda is also just more of the same. There’s another case of an establishment allegedly serving an already intoxicated customer (Kahului Ale House) and two more cases involving licensees getting allegedly caught in minor decoy sting operations (Moose McGillycuddy’s in Lahaina and Deli Corner in Ka‘anapali). All three are pleading no contest to the charges. Of course, the overwhelming sameness that seems to afflict the Adjudication Board these days also means that someone somewhere will say or do something completely inexplicable, and that makes the whole thing worthwhile. In other news, LC Investigator James Kendrick has moved on to other things—namely, the county finance department. Hired by the LC in May 2003, Kendrick left the department earlier this month.

HOW MUCH WORSE CAN IT GET? Yes, HT recently made a profit. This is huge, but tempered by two facts. First, that the profit came only because they sold their phone directory business. Secondly, on Mar. 28, the Wall Street Journal ran a story titled “Hawaiian Telcom is No Paradise for Carlyle Group.” In sickening detail, the paper highlighted for pretty much the whole planet how insanely wealthy and powerful private equity firm Carlyle Group has made a gigantic mess of things over at Hawai`i’s little old phone company. Riddled with phrases like “money drain for Carlyle,” “headache for customers” and “the company continues to lose phone customers at a rapid clip,” the story obliterates any notion that Carlyle Group—which is so close to the Bush clan and Saudi royal families—had any business taking over our phone company.

GOOD NEWS FOR DOWLING?! And Wailuku-based Dowling Company rises a couple notches this week on news that the company donated $15,000 to Na Hale O Maui, the very good and necessary community land trust that helps make working people into actual homeowners. Dowling’s generosity would have translated into a bigger gain this week, had The Maui News ran more than the Mar. 28 blurb on the gift that was, in truth, pretty weak. MTW

According to LC Director Franklyn Silva, Kendrick (who also works security at the Kama‘aina Loan pawn shop in Wailuku) took a promotion by transferring over to the county Department of Finance. “He was an SR-18 [a county bureaucratic rating] here and he’ll be an SR-24 over at Finance, so it’s a pretty big jump,” Silva said.

COCONUT WIRELESS THE WEEK IN REVIEW

WEDNESDAY, Mar. 26 Looks like we might have some much needed federal tax dollars flowing our way. According to a brief story posted on the Honolulu Advertiser website early this evening, U.S. House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Jim Oberstar of Minnesota will fly over Maui tomorrow to look at “critical infrastructure needs.” Oberstar will look at the Pali (Hell yeah, he’s going to look at the Pali!), that backside portion of Pi‘ilani Highway that’s been closed since the October 2006 Big Island quake, some Upcountry water reservoir sites and, of course, Kahului Harbor, according to the paper. Of course, it would be far better if Oberstar actually had to drive the Pali at, say, 5 p.m. on a Friday or out to Kaupo like the rest of us slobs (well, few of us actually have to drive to Kaupo, but still), then he might get a better idea as to what “critical” actually means. In any case, here’s hoping he has a pleasant flight—and that he turns on the big federal tax dollar spigot. Oh, just to be clear: federally funded projects like this are commonly called “earmarks”—the same earmarks that President George W. Bush has (after Republicans lost control of Congress in late 2006) called “wasteful” spending.

THURSDAY, Mar. 27 Ever heard of the Native Hawaiian Education Act (NHEA)? Don’t feel bad if you haven’t—the federal government passed it back in 1988, and

BY ANTHONY PIGNATARO ANTHONY@MAUITIME.COM

they’ve all but ignored it and the $30 million in tax dollars it receives ever since, according to a new Government Accountability Office (GAO) report written about in today’s Honolulu StarBulletin. Designed to provide specialized education assistance to Native Hawaiians, the act has had virtually no oversight from the U.S. Department of Education—no way to track the act’s effectiveness or even where the $30 million goes—according to the GAO report. “[W]e found that little is known about the act’s impact on Native Hawaiian education,” GAO official Cornelia M. Ashby wrote to U.S. Senators Byron L. Dorgan (D, North Dakota), Daniel Akaka (D, Hawai‘i) and Daniel Inouye (D, Hawai‘i) on Mar. 25. “We did not find any impact evaluations, studies, or other types of research linking activities under NHEA to changes in Native Hawaiian educational outcomes.” Of course, the Department of Education told the GAO that “they plan to address these weaknesses,” but gave no timeframe for when that might occur. This is all actually quite understandable: See, the NHEA is part of the Department of Education, which is part of the federal government, which is run by the Bush Administration, which has as its head one George W. Bush who, as must be plain to everyone by now, hates people—black people, Native Hawaiian people, poor people. Basically, people.

To the feds, the NHEA is like this chalkboard: a big blank

have donated thousands of dollars to local Democrats’ political coffers. For instance, last year Banmiller gave $2,000 to the Hawai`i Democratic Party and $2,000 to U.S. Senator Daniel Inouye (D, Hawai‘i), and Ackerman gave Inouye another grand, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. It’ll be very interesting to see how this plays out.

FRIDAY, Mar. 28 Somehow, HB 661—which sets up a system for providing public money to local political candidates (check out Greg Mebel’s Mar. 13, 2008 story “Sunshine Laws” for more) somehow passed out of the state Senate Ways and Means Committee. That’s right, good government people: the bill is still alive, despite having been killed for each of the last nine years. I know—I’m surprised, too.

SATURDAY, Mar. 29 Nice to see the state Legislature fighting to keep Aloha Airlines alive. I think it’s totally forlorn, but still, the effort can be good. According to today’s Honolulu Star-Bulletin, our own state Senator Roz Baker (D, 5th District) is pushing for a bill that would “allow the state to guarantee up to 90 percent of the principal balance of a private loan to a Hawaii interisland air carrier.” Though the bill is explicitly for any “inter-island air carrier,” there’s no question the proposal represents a potential state bailout of Aloha. Though Aloha execs wouldn’t comment for the Star-Bulletin story, they have to be pleased—especially considering the financial help they’ve given the Democrats. It’s probably in bad taste to bring this up, but Aloha executives like President/CEO David Banmiller and Vice President Stephanie Ackerman

SUNDAY, Mar. 30 Well, that was quick. Today Aloha Airlines threw in the towel, announcing on its website that tomorrow it will shut down all inter-island and trans-Pacific passenger flights, even though the company is still in bankruptcy court and the state Legislature has yet to pass any bailout bill. Just like that, a 61-year-old company is finished, and 1,900 people across the state are out of work. Oh, and now there’s even less competition in the inter-island airfare market, which means higher prices and less flights for all concerned. “This is an incredibly dark day for Hawaii,” Banmiller said in the statement. You think?

MONDAY, Mar. 31 And now things get interesting. State Senator Baker is insisting that there’s still time to save Aloha, but given the fact Aloha passenger planes won’t be flying tomorrow, that’s doubtful. But even more fascinating is today’s Pacific Business News online story that contrasts Governor Linda Lingle’s and Senator Inouye’s responses to the Aloha Airlines shutdown. Seems that Lingle–who has taken $10,040 from Aloha execs and PACs since 2002, according to state campaign spending records–is a lot more skeptical of Aloha’s actions than Inouye. Shocking, I know: according to

PBN, Lingle said she’s going to ask bankruptcy Judge Lloyd King, who’s handling the matter, to force the airline to “provide sufficient time and proper notification to employees of the shutdown and that all additional steps be taken to protect the interests and rights of Aloha employees.” Not a bad move, though King rejected doing any such thing. Lingle is also saying she’ll set up a “special labor department team” to assist those 1,900 Aloha employees in finding new work. As for Inouye— the recipient of $13,250 in campaign contributions from Aloha Airlines execs since 1997, according to the Center for Responsive Politics—PBN says he’s far more forgiving of Aloha, especially Banmiller. “He did everything he could,” Inouye told the paper, adding that we should commend the CEO for “working round the clock and pursuing every angle.”

TUESDAY, Apr. 1 You know what I love? Getting completely unsolicited and unsuitable submissions from companies/organizations/hate groups located thousands of miles away, then receiving bitchy emails not long after I’ve deleted said submissions. “I wanted to follow up on the piece I sent your way a couple of days ago,” one recently jilted PR flack wrote me. “If it’s not too much trouble, I’d really appreciate it if you could send me a quick note to let me know if you’ll be able to use it.” Seriously—I can’t get enough of that. Please people, send more. Get snarky news and commentary from Anthony Pignataro sent directly to you cell phone. Just text “follow apignataro” to 40404 and we’ll do the rest. MTW

Southeast Asia’s rainforests, endangered species and indigenous people are suffering while we debate turning food crops into fuel

MAUI TIME WEEKLY

hirteen months ago, in February 2007, the announcement that Hawaiian Electric Company (HECO) would partner with BlueEarth Biofuels LLC to build a $61 million biodiesel refinery on Maui caught many by surprise. Touted as a way to start weaning Maui Electric Company’s (MECO) Ma‘alaea generators off petroleum, the secondary goal was to stimulate local agricultural production of biofuel crops. “This is a huge and gigantic step in the right direction,” Mayor Charmaine Tavares said at the time. Yet many unanswered questions dampened the initial enthusiasm. Who was BlueEarth? Was the company qualified to do such a project, even though it never built a refinery of any size, much less a 120 million gallon/year facility? And why were they chosen by HECO and MECO—bypassing state procurement laws—over award-winning local producer Pacific Biodiesel? More issues arose. Should the state Legislature consider awarding $59 million in special revenue bonds without even the benefit of reviewing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS)? Would building such a large facility really stimulate local biodiesel crop production? A 2006 mandate for 10 percent ethanol in our gasoline had predicted similar local business opportunities, but hasn’t yet panned out. As a result, all Hawai‘i’s ethanol still comes from outside the state. Then there was the most burning questions of all: would Hawai‘i import palm oil from Indonesia and Malaysia, where its boom has brought about devastating environmental, ecological and social justice issues? News of the HECO/BlueEarth proposal was soon followed by word that Imperium Renewables of Seattle hoped to build a 100 million-gallon-a-year (mgy) biodiesel refinery on Oahu. Imperium was also planning to import “significant amounts of palm oil from Southeast Asia, primarily Indonesia and Malaysia,” according to U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filings. Now, a year later, it’s time to examine the true price of HECO’s decision to open a “palm oil pipeline” for Hawai‘i’s electrical generation needs.

T

It is unthinkable that such an environmentally aware state as Hawai‘i would consider for a moment importing palm oil from anywhere in Southeast Asia,” Sean Whyte, Chief Executive of U.K.based Nature Alert, says. “If it does, it will arrive tainted with the blood of thousands of orangutan deaths. Hawai‘i residents will then become part of the problem rather than part of the solution.” Nature Alert’s regular email outreach on the destructive impacts of the palm oil industry echoes those of dozens of other environmental organizations. Two weeks ago, a study released by the World Wildlife Fund warned that destruction of Sumatra’s natural forest is accelerating global climate change and pushing endangered species closer to extinction. Though the island of Borneo is similarly facing rapid expansion of oil palm plantations, Indonesia’s fastest rate of deforestation is occurring in Sumatra’s Riau province, according to the study. There, during the last 25 years, more than 4.2 million hectares (10.5 million acres) of tropical forests and peat swamps have been cleared for industrial plantations. “Worldwide, deforestation continues at an alarming rate of about 13 million hectares (nearly 33 million acres) a year,” announced the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization in their 2007 State of the World’s Forests report.

In 2007, the UN Environment Programme released a compelling Rapid Response Assessment, titled The Last Stand of the Orangutan/State of Emergency: Illegal Logging, Fire, and Palm Oil in Indonesia’s National Parks. The Borneo Orangutan is listed as Endangered, while the Sumatran Orangutan (a separate species) as Critically Endangered, with barely 7,000 left in the wild. Loss of habitat from deforestation has driven some of these magnificent apes to starvation, though others are shot, killed by machete or burned alive from slash and burn clearing. In Malay, the word “orang-utan” translates to “man of the forest.” Indeed, this magnificent ape may be man’s closest relative, sharing nearly 95 percent of the DNA with homo sapiens, the species placing their survival in jeopardy. While the orangutan is the “poster child” of rainforest destruction in this region, the impacts on countless other species, endangered and otherwise, has approached tragic proportions. A long list of Critically Endangered species includes the Javan Rhinoceros, Silvery Gibbon, Mentawai Macaque, Sumatran rabbit, flying squirrel, rhinoceros and water shrew. Another 100-plus species are designated Endangered or Vulnerable, including the Clouded Leopard, Sumatran Tiger, Borneo Pygmy Elephant, Malayan Tapir and Porcupine, as well as dozens of bird species.

he broad impacts of the Malaysian and Indonesian palm oil boom are not limited to the forests and their unique creatures. Surging palm oil prices are causing food costs to soar, indigenous people to lose their traditional lands and lifestyles as well as poisoning the earth, air and water. The January New York Times article “Once a Dream Fuel, Palm Oil may Be an Eco-Nighmare” related the rising cost of cooking oil throughout Asia, especially in India, where palm oil demand for biodiesel has tripled its price over the past two years. Food costs among the poorest of Asia’s people are greatly affected, the Times reported. A February study by Smithsonian scientists published in the prestigious journal Science revealed that many biofuels, including Malaysian palm oil, have greater aggregate environmental costs and emissions than fossil fuels when other factors are weighed, including forest burning, carbon release from draining peat lands, processing and transportation to the end market. (Maybe that explains why every time I type “biofuels,” my computer’s spell check program wants me to change the word to “befouls.”) Oil palm production is also dependent on large input

T


of fertilizers, mostly nitrogen, according to John McCarthy, a lecturer at Australian National University who’s managing a research project in Indonesia. One observer estimated the fertilizer demand at 50 kilos per year to achieve maximum production. Writing in the Mar. 28 Jakarta Post, McCarthy noted that with new policies allocating lands to investors interested in biofuel production crops, the country’s land in plantation production is expected to triple to 20 million hectares (nearly 50 million acres). Forest Peoples Programme, a human rights group based in the Netherlands, has collaborated with the Indonesian group Sawit Watch on a number of publications about the ongoing injustice to indigenous peoples’ landholdings and tribal rights. The collective stories they tell share a common theme: native people pushed off their own lands by profiteers at the expense of their lifestyles, livelihood, resources and dignity. Sawit Watch works in 17 Indonesian provinces and has documented more than 350 land conflicts related to palm oil plantation development. ack in Hawai‘i, HECO’s announcement had barely sunk in with the community when local eco-minded organizations sounded the alarm. Why would HECO support the huge refinery proposals, knowing that it would be five to 10 years before any biofuel crops planted locally would mature and bear fruit? This would lock us into another imported fuel—one with its price rising dramatically in addition to its myriad deleterious impacts. Furthermore, the combined capacity of the two proposed refineries far exceeded the capacity of what could be produced on statewide agricultural lands, even if all available acreage were utilized for this purpose. In May 2007, the state Legislature approved $59 million in special revenue bonds bill, with amendments, despite testimony that opposed the vote by a six to one margin. Special revenue bonds are not an outlay of state funding, but allow a business venture to use the state’s preferred bond lending rate to their advantage. Word quickly spread beyond the Islands. Last June, Rettet den Regenwald (Rainforest Rescue)—a German rainforest action group—posted a Hawai‘i coalition press release and online action to ask Governor Linda Lingle to veto the $59 million revenue bond measure. Despite more than 8,000 emails sent from the site to the governor’s office, she signed the bill. Concurrently, HECO began trying to deflect criticism that they were going to be complicit in environmental destruction in Southeast Asia or elsewhere. They announced a partnership with the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) to hash out the criteria for procurement of “sustainable biofuels.” This curious alliance raised a number of eyebrows. Why would such a respected conservation and protection group go through this exercise in trying to assign sustainability criteria to an industry clearly out of control with regard to environmental standards? The agreement to work together actually pre-dated the mid-summer 2007 round of public meetings on three islands that attempted to explain draft “sustainable biofuels” criteria. Months earlier in appeals to the Legislature for revenue bond funding, HECO and BlueEarth incorporated their “working with NRDC” comments into written and spoken testimony to imply adherence to good environmental standards. As a former contributor to NRDC, I often clicked on their BioGems email appeals, signed petitions and sent money to save wild places from pending development. Past and present BioGems efforts include ecosystems from Patagonia to the Arctic Refuge, and from the Tongass National Forest and Yellowstone to the Tahuamanu Rainforest in Peru.

B

The dire situation in Indonesia and Malaysia from illegal logging and palm oil plantation slash and burn clearing could have originated a BioGems appeal of its very own: Dear BioGem Defender: Two giant energy companies are pushing to import over 200 million gallons of palm oil from alongside Indonesia’s spectacular rainforests. We need your immediate action to block this destructive green-washing scheme, which could pave the way for further massive agro-business industrialization and devastating these natural resource treasures and unique ecosystems. Please go to http://www.hawaiibiofuel.org and urge Hawaiian Electric Co., BlueEarth Biodiesel and Imperium Renewables to halt the palm oil importation proposals until thorough studies of potentially devastating environmental impacts can be carried out. The Indonesian Rainforest is an important resource in the fight against global warming as the “lungs of the Earth”, sequestering massive amounts of CO2. The emissions from thousands of yearly fires in SE Asia, while clearing forest and peat for mono-crop plantations, has landed Indonesia as the world’s third largest producer of harmful greenhouse gases, after China and the U.S. Use by energy companies and utilities in Hawai‘i would accelerate the demand for palm oil exportation and production, and, with the help of NRDC, would continue to encourage reckless and destructive everlasting alterations of these unique ecosystems. Please go to www.lifeofthelandhawaii.org/Palm_Oil_for_Electricity _Generation.html and demand that the NRDC protect the rainforests, their indigenous peoples and endangered species and stop burning down the forest! Thank you for helping to protect our remaining pristine rainforests, and keeping our precious Hawaiian islands from becoming the scourge of the global environmental community. he HECO/NRDC alliance appears to have been forged through a long-standing friendship between Karl Stahlkopf, HECO’s senior vice president, and Ralph Cavanaugh, NRDC’s senior attorney. Stahlkopf worked for a national utility company— Energy Power Research Institute of Palo Alto, California—

that had dealings with Indonesia during the heyday of the corrupt Suharto regime. According to a December 1998 Wall Street Journal article, most of the billions of dollars of U.S. electricpower investments in Indonesia between 1990 and 1997 went through Suharto’s cronies and relatives. Suharto died in January. He had been ousted in May 1998 after 32 years of dictatorship but escaped a corruption trial associated with his amassing a huge fortune during his years in power because his lawyers said his poor health would not allow him to stand trial. A recent Bali Times cover story reported that Suharto’s half-brother was freed from jail after serving two-thirds of his four-year sentence for corruption. As for Cavanaugh, he’s “never met a private utility he didn’t like,” Daniel Berman, co-author of Who Owns the Sun? said during a WBAI-FM interview, according to environmental author Lorna Salzman’s article “National

Resources Defense Council: Eco-logic or Eco-sellout?” For its part, the NRDC insists that its partnership with HECO will be for the good. “NRDC decided to become involved since HECO planned to move forward to source biodiesel with or without our involvement and we hoped that with our involvement we could help to steer the production of palm oil in a more sustainable direction and that although burning biodiesel for electricity is not the ideal source, it is better than burning fossil fuels from a total GHG perspective,” NRDC’s Amy Greer emailed me. Eventually, Hawai‘i groups rallied, and a coalition of five organizations issued a 46-page analysis of the HECO/NRDC draft criteria, which also faced scathing questions during a round of public meetings. The five groups— Sierra Club-Maui, KAHEA, Life of the Land, ‘Ilio‘ulaokalani Coalition and Environmental Defense-Hawai‘i—released the critique of HECO’s proposed sustainability criteria for procurement of biodiesel from palm oil. Circulated to worldwide groups, soon more than 70 organizations from a dozen nations lent their support to the Hawai‘i coalition comments. Undaunted, HECO and NRDC issued their final biodiesel procurement policy in late August 2007, claiming they had incorporated public input into the document and strengthened safeguards. An independent auditor would assure sustainability standards, they wrote. They added that their criteria complied with the standards set by the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), an international organization of more than 200 members “representing all aspects of the palm oil industry that has worked for the past five years to create a sustainable model for palm oil production,” according to the HECO press release. Around the same time, Hawaiian Electric Company became a member of the RSPO. Also last summer, Maui watchdog groups publicly called for HECO and BlueEarth to prepare an EIS, noting that one of the triggers for Hawai‘i’s law is building an oil refinery. Sharp eyes noted that BlueEarth’s website had changed language about their facility from a “refinery” to a “transesterifaction facility,” claiming the process was more akin to making soap than refining oil. Then in September, BlueEarth yielded, announcing that they would prepare a “voluntary EIS.” So far, more than six months have passed, with no sign of such a document. BlueEarth has conducted their work largely behind the scenes, with Kiwanis and Rotary meetings and a panel discussion at the November 2007 Maui County Energy Expo being the only times they addressed the public, other than on their website or The Maui News’ op-ed page. Along the way, the company hired former Maui County Council Chair Dain Kane as their Maui Liaison. When the Maui County Council re-hired Kane as their lobbyist to the state Legislature in January of this year, some questioned if there was an ethical conflict of interest in lobbying for both the county and BlueEarth. Just before the holidays, Imperium Renewables fired its Chief Executive Officer. Two weeks later, the company announced that they were postponing an IPO—Initial Public Offering—of $345 million in company stock.

Imperium had intended to use two-thirds of that sum to construct refinery facilities in Argentina, Philadelphia and at Barber’s Point on Oahu. Imperium’s plans are now uncertain, and they could default on an exclusive contract to supply biodiesel to Constellation Energy on the East Coast by this December. In analyzing the reasons for the recent moves, Rick Kment—a biofuel analyst in Omaha, Nebraska— noted that the price of soybean oil has risen by 78 percent, and that palm oil, also used by Imperium, has also seen prices rise sharply. It seems that HECO— the parent public utility company for three of four Hawaiian Island counties (Kauai Electric is co-operatively owned by its ratepayers)—has pigeonholed itself into choosing biofuel electrical generation above all other choices. Indeed, MECO, which is heavily invested in diesel-burning power plants that require some 75 million gallons yearly, might assume that replacing petroleum with biodiesel in their Ma‘alaea boilers is the quickest fix towards renewable energy. They may be missing the greater point that, while some may consider biofuels renewable, the biodiverse forest ecosystems that once stood where they are grown are irreplaceable. All sustainability is local.” That’s the mantra of Kelly and Bob King, owners of Kahului-based Pacific Biodiesel. Their successful business model incorporates using locally available oils (recycled cooking oils at their Hawai‘i facilities) to produce competitively priced biodiesel fuel, mainly for transportation purchases. “There’s too many things that don’t add up about the motivation to do this project,” Kelly King said at last July’s public meeting regarding the HECO/NRDC procurement criteria. Importing foreign oil, diesel or otherwise, should in no way be deemed “sustainable,” she said. The Kings are also co-founders of the non-profit Sustainable Biodiesel Alliance, whose ultimate goal is a certification process to verify that all points in harvesting, production and distribution meet sustainability standards for community-based biodiesel. “If you build it, they will come,” HECO’s Stahlkopf said at the July meeting, referring to an incentive for local agricultural ventures to grow biodiesel feedstock crops. Yet, local high costs of land, water, labor and equipment may never compete with those in so-called “Third World” countries, and no cost analysis or fuel crop testing has been done to date in Hawai‘i. In fact, HECO has also failed to acknowledge that it may be far more important to utilize available or fallow Hawai‘i farmlands for food production rather than energy crops, as we import 80 to 90 percent of both our

food and energy needs. Hawai‘i environmental groups have urged HECO to pursue renewable energy solutions that incorporate locally abundant sources—wind, solar, waves and ocean thermal technologies. Yet public utilities officials seem unyielding in their support for constructing the huge biodiesel refineries, far beyond the scope of what could ever be supported by future locally grown biofuel agriculture. The premise that an “independent auditor” could verify “sustainable source” for palm oil strikes many as ludicrous, especially since Hawai‘i has a mottled history of environmental enforcement, including the recent lawsuits swirling around the process to approve the $230 million Hawai‘i Superferry. Henry Curtis, Life of the Land’s Executive Director, is a veteran of dealing with legislators, HECO and the state Public Utilities Commission (PUC) on energy issues. “In an era where so many cases of abuse are being documented worldwide regarding agrofuels and palm oil, Hawaiian Electric Company pledged transparency, but has now reneged on that promise, and has requested multiple layers of secrecy before the Hawaii PUC,” Curtis wrote in response to HECO’s Imperium Services proposal. “Shame. Shame. Shame.” Curtis was among those participating in public education sign-waving in January at the University of Hawai‘i campus. With the world’s media watching a U.S.-initiated meeting with 16 of the world’s top carbon-emitting nations, protesters held signs saying “HECO: No Rainforest Destruction For Biofuels” and “BlueEarth Greenwash.” Against objections, HECO has gained approval to build another liquid-fuel burning generation plant at Oahu’s Campbell Industrial Park. Originally proposed to burn ethanol, HECO switched their plans to have the 110-mw plant burn biodiesel. With palm oil prices soaring, Imperium’s plans wavering and the world watching Hawai‘i’s decisions, the new plant, scheduled to be operational in 2009, appears to be in limbo. So what is the ultimate price of HECO, BlueEarth and Imperium’s decisions to commit resources to importing another foreign fuel? In the case of palm oil biodiesel from Indonesia and Malaysia, the ultimate price is not paid in dollars, but in ecological crimes against nature, injustices to native peoples and in extinctions to some of the most majestic creatures with which we share the planet Earth. Sacrificing all this to keep Hawai‘i’s lights on and homes and condos air-conditioned is not merely unacceptable, but is also ill-conceived and reprehensible. To paraphrase Nature Alert’s director Sean Whyte, it’s time for Hawai‘i to step forward and be part of the solution, not part of the problem. MTW

Total Package Waikapu Grill at the Maui Tropical Plantation “has it all” for local families This past Sunday my daughter and I dug out on the hubby and baby to spend some quality time together at The Waikapu Grill at the Maui Tropical Plantation. Open for lunch every day, the Grill offers the perfect balance of gorgeous and kidfriendly surroundings.

We sat by an open window peppered with colorful foliage that allowed us to feel the cool breeze coming down from the West Maui’s. The ambience was awesome: a foun-

While the kid began to color the hula dancer on her keiki menu, I scanned the dining room, wondering why we appeared to be the only local people there. Between the beautiful surroundings and the affordable menu, it seemed like the perfect place for a Maui family to do lunch. Ordering was difficult. I couldn’t decide between the Makai Gardner Salad (a pineapple or half an avocado filled with crab or tuna salad, then served on mixed greens and dressing), the Maui Outrigger (half of a Maui Gold pineapple filled with fresh island fruit, some which came directly from the Maui Tropical Plantation and then served with banana bread and either cottage cheese or

Delight,” filled with lettuce, cucumbers, avocado, sprouts and tomato served on a focaccia roll with pesto. In the end, my daughter went with the keiki pizza and I went chose the Pupu Sampler, which contained calamari steaks, kalua pork quesadillas and spring rolls. The keiki pizza came with Pog— adorned with a fancy pineapple wedge—which my daughter chose to

have blended with ice, turning it into slush. Both of our meals were plated beautifully. They even had real fresh orchids on them that we promptly put in our hair. The calamari was yummy and came with sweet chili sauce. The veggie spring rolls were also really tasty. But my favorite pupu was the kalua pork quesadilla, made

with slow cooked pork and cabbage, poblano peppers, onion, cilantro and cheeses, served with a fresh and light cilantro-lime sauce. For dessert we ordered the home-made Macadamia Nut Cream Pie and, at the suggestion of our friendly and awesome server Kristen, the Fruit & Stuff. The pie was good, though loaded with a few too many mac nuts for my daughter’s liking (after all, it is a grown-up dessert).

Big Music Saturday (April 5) 2 p.m., Lahaina Civic Center [MUSIC] First a confession: I had no idea who Big Mountain was when I sat down to write this. Actually I did, but I didn’t know that I did. See, they’re the guys from California who remade that catchy, reggae version of Peter Frampton’s “Baby, I Love Your Way” 10 or 12 years ago. Now I’m excited, because I really, really like that song. In fact, I’m pretty sure I’ve never heard Frampton’s original. Of course, there’s no need to listen to it now, because the B.M. version was sufficiently groovy and soulful to push it to the top of American Billboard charts in 1995. They’ve also done a bunch of other songs, including lots of reggae-meets-R&B stuff that’s supposed to be really great. They also recently put out an album called Versions: Undercover. Warming up for them at this show are Oahu dancehall reggae artists Maxx Effect and Anjj Lee, as well as Soul Free, InnaVision, Conscious Healing and Kawao. A portion of the proceeds from the concert will benefit the upcoming International Festival of Canoes. Tickets: $20.

[COMEDY] What’s funnier than an interactive comedy show about a bunch of improv pirates on the hunt for creative booty? A bunch of improv pirates dressed in eye patches and jester hats, that’s what. Seriously, the InsPirates have been entertaining, educating and shocking Maui audiences long enough for us to know that this “Fool Circle” show will be a riot. Besides all the foolish improvisation happening on stage, there will be interactive audience games (in case you need help making a fool of yourself) and a dance party afterwards with DJ Plush’s booty shaking beats. Tickets: $15 at the door ($10 in fool costume!) [JA]

FILMCRITIQUE

BY COLE SMITHEY COLE@MAUITIME.COM

Laughing Abstract Farrell and Gleeson get dark in black comedy In Bruges (pronounced “brooj”) is a unique and stylized black comedy that makes good on its ostensibly simple hitmen/boss story. Colin Farrell has visible fun as Ray, a newbie assignment killer sent to Bruges, Belgium with his more experienced Irish compatriot Ken (Brenden Gleeson), to hide out after a London kill that went astray.

In Bruges

★★★★★ Rated R/101 min.

A Laurel and Hardy friendship develops between the two men as they tour Belgium’s best preserved medieval city while awaiting instructions from their excitable and profane boss Harry (exceptionally played by Ralph Fiennes). The film shifts into a postmodern existential satire even as the body count goes up in a surprisefilled climax. Here is an unapologetically irreverent European flick that makes subtle character development as effortless as Colin Ferrell’s upward bent eyebrows. “You’ve got to stick to your princi-

ples” is the theme that Ray, Ken and Harry wrestle with individually as their similarbut-different purposes are revealed for coming to the picturesque town with its romantic canals, bridges, and cobblestone streets. Harry visited Bruges with his parents as a boy and looks back nostalgically on the ancient city as a magical kind of fantasy land. Ray and Ken are two fish out of water and as such attract odd pals that include drug dealers, prostitutes, and a racist American dwarf film actor Jimmy (Jordan Prentice). There’s some borrowing from last year’s black comedy hit Death at a Funeral in transferring a dwarf character to carry significant plot points, but when Jimmy goes off on a cocaine rant about an imminent race war, the character metaphorically sticks out his tongue and bites it clean off. Ray repeatedly complains that Bruges is a “shithole” while happy-go-lucky Ken clearly enjoys the place’s innate charm. But Ray’s generally put-off demeanor conceals a terrible heartbreak over a lethal mistake he made in London. Nonetheless, Ray’s spirits rise when he meets a local hottie named Chloe (Clemence Poesy), a criminal in her own right, with a boyfriend (Jeremie Renier) who loads his gun with blanks. Writer/director Martin McDonagh (Six Shooter) follows the form of classic ‘60s era European cinema in giving the first act a leisurely pace in which nothing much seems to happen while layers of behavior are adding up. There’s no mistaking the township of the title as an enormous secondary character stealing for menace.

Ron Paul has not and will not quit the presidential race. “Inflating the money supply is the easiest form of financing the government. The Federal Reserve, an unelected and unaccountable private organization, pumps more dollars into the economy whenever it chooses.

So this is postmodern existential satire In Bruges is a movie that makes you thirsty for the golden Belgian beer that its characters savor at every opportunity. It made me want to travel to Bruges to spend a few days drinking, but the film’s rapid submersion into the inky waters of pitch black comedy is its real reward. Black comedy is a rich genre when done well because it forces the audience to look at humor, culture, and death under an abstract microscope. I just love a good abstract laugh. MTW

ART&ENTERTAINMENT

Power Doll Third generation doll-maker Cecilia Bahena uses symbolism for inspiration and change I first met Maui artist Cecilia Bahena at the Maui Bake Shoppe in Wailuku. She was absolutely stunning, with dark brown, nearly black hair and large chocolate eyes. Physically, she stood out from the crowd, even on an island filled with exotic and beautiful people. Her artwork is just as intriguing and pleasing to the eye. Classically trained as an oil painter, Bahena is a member of the Plein Air Painters of Hawai’i and is certified by the Kennedy Center for the Performing arts as an art instructor for teachers. In the 1990’s she taught art to at-risk youth through the Lahaina Art Society’s Art Outreach Program at Kahikili Terrace, Harbor Lights, Luana Gardens and other neighborhoods around the island. Oil has been her primary source of artistic expression, but she has also experimented with other mediums. Most notable has been her work fashioning wooden dolls out of a diverse variety of materials. “Both my grandmothers and my mother were doll makers,” Bahena said. “I began making dolls at the age of seven and have continued through out my life. I studied the history of the doll and how various cultures use them.” Bahena first began to use handmade dolls as a form of therapy when she was involved in the Lahaina Art Society’s Art Outreach program. “The children enjoyed making dream dolls and pillows to help ease bad dreams and negative feelings,” she said. “We used cloth, and the dolls and pillows were a form of therapy. We wrote positive sayings and words on them and collaged them with fabric, beads and paint.” In 2002, Bahena relocated to California were she worked as activity director at a 95bed long-term care facility. “I used the doll form once again,” she said. “For some patients who could only see and not hold the

dolls, I used the wooden form so I could stand the dolls on their window sills or dressers. I also started to incorporate some Color Therapy. Everyday I would make my rounds and read the inspirational quotes and sayings on the dolls to the patients. It was very uplifting for them.” When we met, Bahena brought along a few of her dolls, including some currently in private collections and on display in various galleries. “These are the Artistic Sculpture dolls,” she told me. “They’re now on wood exclusively and incorporate handmade and painted paper, fibers with ancient symbols and designs. For images I use famous art or my own paintings, Hawaiian tapa and floral prints and stuff. I also use Mayan numbers and basic number meanings. Color therapy is used to enhance the mood of the viewer. Quotes in Hawaiian and English, or just specific words, carry the theme of each sculpture.” One doll, named “Paradise,” has a two-sided face, which Bahena said represents the Roman god Janis. One face looks to the past, while the other looks toward the future. Bahena painted spirals on the doll, representing female energy, and three plumeria that show self-expression, openness and optimism. The dominant colors of the doll are red and yellow, which Bahena said depict strength and courage. Every little adornment on the doll apparently has a specific meaning and purpose. To be honest, I had so much fun exploring the doll that I was reluctant to return it to its maker. I have a sneaking suspicion that everyone who has the chance to explore one will feel the same attachment. Bahena’s Artistic Sculpture dolls can be found at Maui Hands, the Hui Noeau Visual Art Center, Haleakala Trading Co. and at the Kealani on Mondays. Prices range from $55$150.

I love that some of my friends look to me to introduce them to new, fun music. Also, I love predicting what songs and bands will make it big in the next few months. But as my street cred increases, I’m worried that someone will find out I’ve been pulling a Martha Stewart. So, here’s my confession: I’ve been doing some insider trading. KCRW’s Today’s Top Tune helps keep audiophiles like me up-to-date (and slightly pretentious) by allowing us to download a hand-picked song every weekday.

THE MIDWEST TEEN SEX SHOW If you’re looking for “barely legal blondes!!!” and “naughty school girlz!!!” this isn’t for you. But if you want a slightly sarcastic, always hilarious way to forgo talking to your kids about bumping uglies (and anything else they might bump), this is the podcast for you. Of course, a mere podcast is no replacement for that glorious awkwardness of sitting a kid down for “the talk.” The Midwest Teen Sex Show covers topics like The Older Boyfriend, The First Time and Homosexuality. If anything, this podcast is a means to facilitate discussion. Finally, you can enjoy that pained look of “Why me?!” your kid will give you during “the talk.” Good times.

April 12, 2008 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Join us for a day of FUN with: • Entertainment • Ono Food • Cultural arts and crafts!! • Philip Sabado to receive the Masaru “Pundy” Yokouchi Leadership Award • Display of Maui County Sister Cities Foundation, Inc.“2008 Young Artist Showcase”

TICKETS ON SALE Taj Mahal and the Hula Blues Band - Thu, Apr 10. Taj Mahal is a musical visionary who’s unique sound blends West African, Caribbean, Cuban and Latin sounds in into country blues style jazz, folk, rock and soul music. Basically, it’s a little bit of everything with a very bluesy flavor. I mean, the guy plays over 20 instruments after all, most notably his own gravelly, sultry voice. When he plays with the Hula Blues Band they put some Hawaiian steel guitar, tenor, baritone and liliu ukulele tones and wind, bass and drum sounds into the mix, too. Tickets: $50, $45, $40. 7:30 p.m.

Castle Theater, MACC. 242-7469. Brown `Ohana - Sat, Apr 12. Slack key guitar has been a tradition in the Brown family for more than three generations. Brothers Kevin and Sheldon formed Waiehu Sons, named for their home town on Maui, recorded several albums and performed together for decades around Maui. Then Keven’s son Ikaika picked up the slack key and joined the party, recording albums of his own and performing with his father and uncle. Tickets: $30. 7:30 p.m.

McCoy Studio Theater, MACC. 242-7469. Judith Weikle - Wed, Apr 16. When I think of celtic music I think of rowdy Irish pups, but Judith Weikle’s new album, Pirates, Poets and Patriots is a more of a haunting collection of traditional celtic melodies and powerful, heartwrenching tunes. She’ll perform her Emerald Isle repertoire along with Kate MacLeod on the fiddle, Dylan Schorer on the guitar and Diane Rubio on the cello. Tickets: $20. 7:30 p.m. McCoy Studio

Theater, MACC. 242-7469. Island Writers Panel - Fri, Apr 18. Several Hawai`i contemporary fiction writers, including Cathy Song, Lee Catalina and Mavis Hara, will be reading from their works and discussing challenges in the creative writing process. Tickets $25. 7:30 p.m. McCoy Studio Theater, MACC. 242-7469. Coconut Caberet - Sat, Apr 19. Drag queen extraordinaire Miss Coco Peru returns to Maui for a hilarious solo show titled Ugly Coco, an autobiographical piece with songs, silliness and stories, all in pursuit of an answer to the question, “Can a drag queen save the world?” Well, if she can withstand all the hair plucking and get into a pair of panty hose without running them, I think just maybe she can. Tickets: $20. 7:30 p.m. McCoy Studio Theater,

MACC. 242-7469. Hapa - Sat, Apr 19. You know them as Hapa.

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Everyone’s on board with your plan—everyone except the one person you’d most like to be on board. Because almost all of us love your plan, we’re praying that you don’t throw it all away for this one person. You’re prone to extravagant melodramatic gestures like that, sometimes. It’d be an awfully dumb thing to do just because one person won’t (or, more likely, can’t) get on board right now. Please move forward with your excellent idea. That special person may or may not ever climb on board, but at least give them a chance by actually setting sail.

TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) This week is an exercise in patience and maturity—specifically, yours. You’re likely to be subject to a variety of obnoxious and inappropriate behaviors. These aren’t plots to undermine or destroy your peace of mind, but rather incredibly inept and desperate pleas for attention. Can you be the one adult in a sea of emotional teenagers? Or will you complain that it’s not fair? (It isn’t, but that’s just the way it is.) How generous and forgiving can you be? Can you rise above the annoyance and give those in question some of the tolerant, insightful attention they sorely need? They won’t thank you for it, probably—but the rest of us will.

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Playing rock, paper, scissors may not be the best way to decide something, but at least something would get decided. Short of some kind of intervention, some of us fear that you’ll never come to any sort of point here. I know you’d rather arrive at some kind of intelligent decision that’s less random than simply flipping a coin. But at least that way, you’d finally reach some sort of conclusion, instead of endless wavering as you have been for—how long now? Weeks? Months? Years? Way too long. Flip a coin already. Any decision is better than none.

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Where will you choose to see (and show) the most beauty? In the big picture and the long view, or in the details? Do you want a portrait taken from far away, with Vaseline on the lens? Or do you want an extreme close-up, with emphasis on all the details, even if they seem like “imperfections?” If you present the former to the world, you’re likely to get lots of admirers but few, if any, will stick around once they get close enough to see the stuff that got left out of that image. The latter, however, might not net you any admirers at all, unless you find someone who’s able to see beauty in those details. Of course, that’s the kind of person you ultimately want to find, right?

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) Keep things simple. You’ve always had an appreciation for simplicity and forthrightness, and tend to possess those qualities yourself. Yet somehow you still end up entangled in nets of obfuscation, vagueness, and manipulation. Extricate yourself from that kind of bullshit, Leo, and the lame people intent on keeping you tangled up in them and more or less holding you back. They’re ultimately not worth your time, and should be left behind as soon as reasonably possible. Find the people who are as direct, honest, and clear as you are. You’ll appreciate them. What’s more, they’ll appreciate you.

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) Don’t be such a wimp! You’re like someone who goes snow-boarding for the first time, then wakes up sore the next day and decides, “This is not for me.” Of course things will hurt when you’re trying something new. This is the equivalent of exercising muscles you’ve rarely used before. I can’t believe you’re willing to give up this easily. I won’t let you, and I hope there are at least a few other people in your life who will push you to keep at it. Get your ass up! Stretch, work out the kinks, and then get right back to whatever it was you were doing to give yourself such an awesome workout.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22)

I SOLD A $365,000 CONDO with a $9 classified ad in MauiTime!

Josh Jerman, Realtor (S)

Recognize that determination will only take you so far. I’m a big fan of mind over matter and an “anything’s possible” attitude, but sometimes you just have to face a big old reality check and admit that something or someone might simply be out of your league (at the very least, right now). If you want to build yourself up to reach new heights, you’ve got to make sure your foundation is solid enough to handle it, or you’ll collapse, regardless of your will to succeed. Take it down a few notches and check on your foundation. Is it cracked? Is it big enough and strong enough to hold you up as you grow? If not, spend this week (and perhaps much longer) working on it before you even contemplate reaching for the heavens.

SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) Scars are not all that define us, as individuals, but the wounds we recovered from do play a large part in determining who we are. Thus they should be honored, and, if possible, cherished. Suffering, in the right quantities, can breed incredible, inspiring people. This is not to say you shouldn’t try to ease others’ suffering whenever you can. You should always do your best in this regard; life is hard enough! But when you simply can’t make someone’s troubles go away, you can take comfort in the fact that if they survive their woes, they’ll ultimately be better off for it.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21)

Ants follow scent messages left by their sisters as they carry out their daily labors. You, too, are following secret signals that you might not even be consciously aware of. Luckily, I believe you to have far more capacity than an ant to become conscious of them, and choose how you’ll react to them, instead of just blindly heeding them. This week, try to take note of how many of your decisions you make without really thinking about them. This is not to say you should endlessly deliberate over every little thing. But actually noticing your decisions is the first step towards being able to assess whether they’re smart ones or not.

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) When presented with a choice between two kinds of competitions—one a straightforward race, where the fastest person gets the prize, and the other something more devious, which involves analysis, manipulation, and even deviousness—most signs would unequivocally choose one over the other every time. Not you sly Capricorns. Asked to select a preference between those two possibilities, your answer would assuredly be: “Whichever one I’m more likely to win.” Unfortunately, you can’t know that ahead of time in this case, so think of it like this: run the race whose winner you would ultimately respect more.

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) When it comes right down to it, you do what you’ve got to do. You may turn up your nose, at first, to some of the necessities but once you’ve decided they’re necessities, you roll up your sleeves and get to them. Stranded in the middle of nowhere, you’d do what you had to do to survive, even if it meant hunting squirrels for their meat and pelts. We’d find you a couple years down the line garbed all in grey gnawing on a tiny rodent leg quite happily. The situation you’re faced with is one of those: rife with unpleasant necessities. You already know how adaptable you are once you’ve jumped into a situation; the delay is usually while you’re still on the brink. Go on, get it over with. Leap and adapt, already.

PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) These people mean business. They don’t mess around. You don’t think of yourself as someone who does, but by their standards, you may simply be too vague, non-committal, and ultimately too flaky to count on—unless you step it up. Can you do that, Pisces? Or are you so attached to your ways of doing things that you’ll let an opportunity like this pass you by? Intentions mean squat if you can’t follow through on them. Ultimately, this is a question you’ll always have to face. We know you can talk a big game—but can you, realistically, live up to it?

RESTLESSNATIVE

BY STARR BEGLEY STARR@MAUITIME.COM

Almost Famous I do not want to be famous, but I’m pretty sure that Andy Warhol’s 15 minutes of fame prediction has come true. With blogs and stuff like You Tube, everyone can be famous (read: downloaded) for at least a brief moment in time. Now until very recently, I had always thought fame would be the cat’s pajamas. See, I’ve always envisioned fame to be this happy place full of comped meals, designer clothes, weekends filled with parties and men and theme music. In my head, the famous walk around to theme music. I’m not sure what my song would be, but it would pop into everyone’s head whenever I walked by. As a teenager, I even did some television work. Yes, it was a German soap opera, and I had to wear a bikini, but it was still TV. Of course, I have yet to hear someone say, “Hey aren’t you that chick from blah blah blah?” Now that I write a weekly column, I’m getting actual attention from the public. Suddenly, I’m not as extroverted as I thought I was. Then again, maybe I’d enjoy my mediocre level of “fame”–if you can call it that–if it was more positive than negative. Fame wouldn’t be that bad if everybody loved me—I could roll with an inbox full of love letters. Being in the public eye can be uncomfortable. I’m unnerved when I think about how many people out there have formed opinions of me without actually meeting me. Of course, I judge people I don’t know all the time and totally enjoy every minute of it. In fact, one of my favorite web sites is The Superficial (www.thesuperficial.com), which is loaded with snarky, sometimes mean entries that make fun of our favorite celebs for no particular reason at all. The interesting thing is that all of us are far more talked about and famous than we think. Chances are, if you spend any amount of time on the Internet there is someone somewhere talking about you. Frightening? More like fascinating. I recently sold a pair of designer jeans on eBay. The day after they sold, I got a lovely email from a reader on another island asking me if it was me who sold the pair of True Religions on eBay. I laughed out loud at what a small world it really is, even on the web which seems to go on to infinity and beyond, then told her that yes, I did. Come to find out she belongs to a forum that discusses and loves designer denim (don’t laugh—I’m a member of forums on pole-dancing and crochet) and evidently there was a thread of people discussing my jeans. My jeans! And I’m not talking about a couple of verbal exchanges, here—I’m talking a full-on discussion about the details and nuances of my old jeans. After reading the exchange, I immediately discovered two things. First, that we’re all famous for something. And second, that someone seriously scored when they bought my denim. Starr Begley would like to congratulate Britney Spears for wearing panties today. MTW
