LETTERSTOTHEEDITOR SPEEDILETTER I am the Vice President of Business Development & Corporate Sales at SpeediShuttle Hawai`i. I read with interest the “Rob Report” in the March 29th issue of Maui Time on “Maui’s Top 10 Ongoing Environmental Challenges.” I wanted to make sure that your readers knew that there are many “Green” companies on Maui and SpeediShuttle stands with that proud group. Our company addresses parts of the top two challenges. SpeediShuttle uses B100 (100 percent biodiesel) that is made from “second use” vegetable oils. Those oils are recycled through transesterification to make an agricultural based fuel that can be mixed with petroleum diesel fuel or in SpeediShuttle’s case used as the entire fuel placed in our vehicles. SpeediShuttle may be the only transportation company in the world that uses B100 to power it’s entire fleet. The use of biodiesel is generally regarded to be better in many ways for emissions versus petroleum diesel. Biodiesel decreases the production of smog producing pollutants, sulfur emissions (that cause acid rain) are basically eliminated and its use reduces unburned hydrocarbons, carbon dioxide and particulate matter versus using petroleum diesel. Using biodiesel decreases our dependence on foreign oil and makes our environment cleaner. It’s great to use it in Hawai`i because of our marine environment also. SpeediShuttle, it’s management and employees are so excited about what we are able to do here on Maui to help alleviate the top two environ-

mental concerns we face. Visit SpeediShuttle at and use SpeediShuttle to make Maui a more beautiful and healthy place to live. SpeediShuttle is Hawai`i’s Eco-Shuttle!!! -Gregory A. Koestering, Vice President Business Development/Corporate Sales, SpeediShuttle

TITA? The Podcast is a great idea [Beyond the Ink, at]. Most surprising was hearing Samantha [Campos]’s actual voice. I always imagined her voice as a hard-core tita, but listening to the cast I was… “she sounds more like a college hottie!” Now my mind will be in a total warp reading the text of her column while hearing the sound of her voice in my head. -Joshua, via email

I’m the tall blonde tenant who never tried to kiss your ass and paid the price. I legitimately moved into the apartment almost a year ago, but the name on the lease was my boyfriend’s. You wigged out on me as I was leaving and didn’t have time to argue with you. Not enough that you pressurewashed my cat—hard to believe your hatred of that animal caused all this— but then you had to call me a “dumb f-ing bitch” as I left the driveway. Wow, really adult and professional of you to treat your tenant that way. Then you threatened me physically and generally acted like a total cow. Should have expected you to get the police to show up and say I couldn’t re-enter the premises—even to get my things. Just wanted to let you know that I don’t know where I’m sleeping each night and that everything I own is still in the house you so abruptly banned me from entering. Great example to set for your young children. I wish I called child services when I heard you working your kids over—maybe I’d at least have some satisfaction that you got your just desserts for making me homeless.

Maui Koa

No Good Deed...

Reforesting and recycling On a Monday morning in June 2003, a large crowd gathered on the lawn surrounding the old buildings at the Ulupalakua Ranch. A “chicken skin” ceremony and celebration followed, marking the collaboration of several large landowners, unified in a partnership to reforest the upland, leeward slopes of Haleakala with native trees. Largely the vision of United States Geological Survey biologist Art Medeiros, the Leeward Haleakala Watershed Restoration Partnership (LHWRP) was thus born. Eight landowners, holding 43,715 acres stretching from Kaupo to Makawao, signed a Memorandum of Understanding to work together to restore native dryland forest ecosystems, which have been reduced to less than five percent of their original range by clearing, grazing and invasive species. Four years later, replanting efforts are slow, yet steady. Regular volunteer work trips are gradually restoring 10 and 20-acre fenced exclosures at Auwahi, on the southwest rift zone of Haleakala, in the 4,000-foot elevation range. Much of the upland forests were cleared and burned in the late 1800’s to make way for cattle grazing. Kikuyu grass was imported in the 1940’s, and is now pervasive in many areas. The black wattle tree is an aggressive pest in the Kula and Keokea regions. Still, more than 50 native species have been identified in the Auwahi region. Of those, six are listed as endangered, and five more are species of concern. But the vision of the LHWRP is much grander than just replanting native species. Medeiros foresees native koa forests hosting a diversity of other species, including the native birds which once populated that region, but have retreated to the rainy windward slopes where they are susceptible to mosquito-borne avian malaria. Beyond establishing a biological preserve, koa restoration offers the benefits of enhancing watershed resources and recharging the aquifer, and linking Hawaiian culture and crafts with a sustainable silvaculture (tree-growing) industry, providing jobs to support rural lifestyles and economic diversification. But “undoing centuries of damage takes a while,” Medeiros says. Koa is rapid growing, nitrogen fixing, but

LC Watch The County of Maui’s liquor rules state very clearly that it’s not enough if a licensee’s staff simply takes note that one of their customers may be drunk. Nor is it enough if the licensee’s staff engages in what the industry calls “slow service,” even to the point of pretending not to hear the customer’s request for another drink. In fact, it’s not even enough if the licensee cuts off a potential drunk: under Maui’s liquor rules, all licensees must physically remove from the premises any customer they consider to be intoxicated. To do less than that is to invite serious fines and penalties. Mulligan’s at the Wharf found this out during the Apr. 5, 2007 Liquor Control Adjudication Board hearing. On June 14, 2006, the Maui Police Department arrested a woman in Ka`anapali for driving under the influence. An LC investigator subsequently asked where she’d been drinking, and she said Mulligan’s (she had attended a fundraiser for a young resident suffering from cancer).

faces formidable obstacles. Fencing is essential, as pigs, goats and axis deer eat koa saplings. Acacia koa also faces a more insidious threat, fusarium oxysporum, a vascular wilt fungus that can cause rapid death in trees of all sizes. Testing is being done to find resistant strains and remedies for the fusarium koa wilt. It’s not just the scarcity, but also the beauty of koa’s wood grain that has made it a prized commodity to furniture and instrument makers, finish carpenters, sculptors, artisans and craftsmen, including those shaping canoes and paddles. Koa’s distinctive, colorful grain brings prices of up to $45 a board-foot. That’s why Jitendra Russell began to research how to go about milling and using the wood when he discovered dead and fallen koa trees on his 10-acre property above Pi`iholo Ranch. Born in Great Britain, Russell spent 20 years in Benares, India working with a master instrument maker, eventually creating his own new instruments, including the sitara—a synthesis of the guitar and the classical Indian sitar. His love of woodworking sparked his interest in finding a use for the koa on his land. He learned that much of the


koa/`ohi`a forest above Makawao was cut and hauled to the Pi`iholo Mill, starting in the 1860’s. Much of the wood went to fuel the boilers at the early sugar mills and to make charcoal. By the early 1900’s, the land was almost totally depleted of the majestic `ohi`a and koa trees. Following several leads, Russell eventually tracked down equipment sitting unused on a Maliko gulch property. He see KOA, page 13

At the Apr. 5 hearing Mulligan’s owner Kevin O’Kennedy argued over how many drinks the woman actually consumed on the night in question—his bartender said they served her two before “ignoring” her request for a third; her husband said she’d had “three or four”—but he conceded the point that his staff should have thrown her out when they realized she was intoxicated. “I’ve not been before this board before,” he told the nine members. “She was coherent [though] she had a wobble in her wiggle… [But] the letter of the law states that we recognized she was intoxicated and that she was not allowed to stay.” And that’s why Mulligan’s was in the dock. O’Kennedy’s staff tagged a customer as intoxicated and even stopped serving her, but because they didn’t kick her out the hammer was going to fall on them. After nearly half an hour of deliberation, the board returned with exactly the punishment asked for by Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Andrew Martin: $4,000 in fines, with half that amount suspended if Mulligan’s can avoid a similar violation for a year.

‘Coverage’ How we found out that the Maui Land & Pineapple Company doesn’t like you, our loyal readers The Maui Land & Pineapple Company doesn’t like you. You heard me. It’s because you read this paper— because you’re reading this paper right now. I’d like to say it’s nothing personal—that a company owning 22,400 acres of Maui, doing $178.9 million in sales last year and employing more than a thousand people wouldn’t be so petty—but frankly, the evidence says otherwise. We found this out last week when Maui Time Associate Editor Samantha Campos asked ML&P for a press pass so she could attend this year’s Kapalua Wine & Food Festival, which runs June 29 through July 1 at the Kapalua Resort. Campos attended the festival back in 2004. “A lot of people go for the virtually risk-free chance to sample new wines and flavors or to meet other connoisseurs, both amateur and professional,” Campos reported in our July 15, 2004 issue. “Others go for the wines they know best, downing them repeatedly while they see familiar faces and talk excitedly about geographical conditions, like the world being flat. Me, I’m more of the less talking, more tasting kind of crowd.” Two years later, Campos wrote a preview story on the festival, in which she advised you, our readers: “don’t pretend to know more than you do— picking the brains of foodies and wine experts from Germany, Spain or Anaheim about their region and varietal is one of the best parts of an event like this for the voracious and open-minded.” In the news biz, we call stories like these “positive coverage.” Newspapers who publish such stories about events generally get free event press tickets (a pass that includes all the events of the three-day festival costs $750). Not that we wrote stories to get free passes—that would be unethical—but the Kapalua Wine & Food Festival is an event we genuinely enjoy covering and feel such coverage is important to our readers. On Mar. 30, Campos emailed Tracy Johnson, the Public Relations Manager for the Kapalua Resort and Maui Land & Pineapple Co., asking for a pass to this year’s festival. That same day, Johnson rebuffed her. “I’m sorry but in light of the media coverage that Maui Time Weekly regularly prints about ML&P, we would

feel uncomfortable hosting your paper at the Kapalua Wine and Food Festival,” Johnson wrote. “I hope you understand.” Actually, no, we don’t understand, Campos responded on Apr. 3. “What coverage are you referring to, exactly?” she asked. Johnson elaborated a few hours later. “Attached is a sampling of the recent articles and letters to the editor that have been published in only the past few weeks,” she wrote. Johnson’s email included four Maui Time stories. One was the Mar. 15, 2007 edition of my column Coconut Wireless which contained exactly two sentences on the company. The other three attachments were editions of our Letters to the Editor section. Two of the editions were also published in March. They contained a couple letters critical of Maui Land & Pine’s decision to develop its land overlooking Honolua Bay. The last story sent over by Johnson threw me at first. It contained just a single letter to the editor that criticized me for criticizing ML&P in an earlier story on the company’s problems with toxic water in West Maui. I couldn’t figure out why ML&P would have a problem with this, until I reread my response, in which I exposed the letterwriter as an ML&P employee. To be fair, the Kapalua Wine & Food Festival is a private event, put on by ML&P, and they can give free access to whomever they want. But to ban us because a tiny group of our readers had written us letters criticizing ML&P development plans? Johnson could have referred to my Aug. 24, 2006 story “Tax Breaks,” where I delved into the County of Maui’s granting of a special, and apparently unwarranted tax break to ML&P. Or she could have referenced my June 26, 2006 story “Moratorium Time,” which questioned how ML&P’s Pulelehua project will affect island traffic. Then there was my Jan. 26, 2006 story “Toxic Water,” which

Not for us this year

had spurred the letter cited above. But no. When we asked Johnson why her company wouldn’t let us attend the Kapalua Wine & Food Festival for free, she pointed to letters we had published from our readers. Campos wrote back to Johnson on Apr. 4. She asked Johnson to identify the company official or officials who made the decision to deny us a press pass. She asked if that official or official had taken

her own, positive stories on the Kapalua Festival into consideration when denying us the press pass. She also asked if Maui Land & Pine would deny The Maui News press passes, since it has published far more letters to the editor critical of the company than we probably ever will. “How disappointing it was to learn that Maui Land & Pineapple Co. has targeted this land for wasteful development,” said Merrilee and Mark Meyer of Rainier, Washington in the Apr. 4 Maui News. “Hasn’t it developed enough?” Two days later, the paper published a letter from Kainoa Wilson of Lahaina on the same subject: “Who’s going to live there?” he asked. “The same people who live in their places on Plantation Estates? Never saw anybody there either.” The Apr. 7 Maui News published three more ML&P-related letters, all critical of the Honolua Bay project. At press time, Johnson has not responded to either Campos’ last email or a followup call I made to her on Apr. 9. We’ve given up on getting a festival pass, but we’d still like to know more about why Maui Land & Pine doesn’t like our readers. Research by Kira Sabini. MTW

and it got all wet—just like Souki himself.


WEDNESDAY, Apr. 4 Today a reader dropped by the office to give us one of those old “ReElect JOE SOUKI” sponges, which I’ve got to say is the best campaign premium I’ve ever seen. Not only does it work on a metaphoric level—who’s going to forget a politician who identifies himself with a sponge?—but it’s terribly useful in real life. And since the Democrat Souki—who represents Wailuku and chairs the state House Transportation Committee—just made an even bigger name for himself than usual by killing the bills that would have required a full environmental review of the proposed Hawai`i Superferry, his sponges will come in handy. You can use it to wipe down your car’s tires before you get on the Superferry, to make sure you don’t transport any potentially invasive species to other islands. And if the lookouts on the super-fast Superferry aren’t looking where they should and the boat ends up plowing into a super-slow whale, you can use the sponge to wipe down the hull. “Dip in water,” it says. “See what happens.” I did as the sponge asked me,

THURSDAY, Apr. 5 Sneezing.

FRIDAY, Apr. 6 Haven’t heard from our friends the Hawaiian monk seals in a while. Some people might say that’s because Hawaiian monk seals can’t talk, but I’ve always been of the opinion that they could talk, but just never had anything to say. Though I must admit that opinion doesn’t seem very compelling these days—if I were one of the 1,200 remaining Hawaiian monk seals that’s still alive on the planet Earth, I’d be screaming my head off for help. Twelve hundred Hawaiian monk seals—can you believe that? And scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Fisheries believe that number will drop to less than a thousand in just the next four years. According to today’s Honolulu Advertiser, NOAA has actually posted a website——where people can see the day-by-day travels of half a dozen tagged Hawaiian monk seals that live at Midway Atoll. Looking over the satellite images of Midway showing the seals’ tracks, I was forced to conclude that most Hawaiian monk seals really don’t do much. For instance, of the six seals on the NOAA site, just one—that would be PO42, born June 6, 2006—has actually left the atoll since the tracking began on Apr. 2. The rest just kind of casually bounce around Sand, Spit and Eastern Islands and occasionally the outer reef, apparently living a quiet, meandering life. But PO42 is different. “PO42 looks to be the most adventurous of the Captive Care seals,” reports the NOAA website. “Today she ventured out into the big blue sea and into much deeper water.” Now that’s a Hawaiian monk seal!

SATURDAY, Apr. 7 Today BlueEarth Biofuels managing partner Landis Maez tells The Maui News that he’s shocked—Shocked!—that a considerable number of Maui residents oppose his company’s plans to build a giant biodiesel refinery here that would use imported palm oil. “We didn’t think we would have as much opposition as we did,” he said in the article. What a beautiful statement. A corporate guy who wants

All hail the sponge

to build a massive refinery on Maui decides to start throwing around the word “sustainable”—perhaps knowing that there are a lot of environmentally sensitive people on the island who take that concept very seriously—but doesn’t think anyone will mind that his “sustainable” biofuel refinery will consume huge swaths of rainforest for its palm oil feedstock. In a time when big corporations around the world are knocking themselves out advertising themselves as “green” and “sustainable,” it’s heartening that there’s so much opposition to BlueEarth Biofuels.

SUNDAY, Apr. 8 U.S. Army Private First Class Jay S. Cajimat (Lahainaluna, Class of 2005) is the 3,536th coalition soldier to die in the war in Iraq. Attached to the 1st Infantry Division, Cajimat, 20, died Friday—like so many of his fellow soldiers—in an IED attack in Baghdad. Given the rhetoric of not only our own brave Commander-inChief but also of his numerous wanna-be successors—not one of which wants to end the war immediately—it’s impossible not to wonder how many more young men and women will die like Cajimat.

GUY: “You know, the tide is going to come up here in about half an hour. It’s going to be up to your towel.” GIRL: “It’s okay. I live here.” -Charley Young Beach in Kihei, Apr. 4


APRIL 12, 2007


on an Indian Country Today feature on a huge rise in subprime lending to Native Hawaiians. “[M]ost subprime specialists do a lot of lending to Native Americans,” reports PBN. “Lenders reported $21 billion in loans to Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders in 2005, up almost a fifth from the previous year and part of a nationwide trend of heightened lending to Native Americans, much of [it] at subprime rates that are currently getting attention as borrowers fall behind in payments.” That lenders are increasingly going the subprime route—higher-interest loans to people with bad or no credit histories—isn’t new. But when matched to a recent report put out by the Center for Responsible Lending (CRL), a surprisingly ugly picture emerges of a credit industry gone horribly wrong. Lenders have long insisted that while subprime loans and mortgages may expose people to risky interest-only payments and such, they also open the door to home-ownership to millions of people who may not qualify for prime rate lending. But on Mar. 27 of this year, CRL reported that subprime loans made from 1998 through 2006 actually “have led or will lead to a net loss of homeownership for almost one million families.” This is because that even though during those years 1.4 million bought homes for the first time, “over 2.2 million borrowers who obtained subprime loans will lose or have already lost their home to foreclosure.”

Brings a whole new meaning to the term “predatory lending,” doesn’t it? Anthony Pignataro is just finishing post-production work on his latest movie, a heart-rending love story tentatively titled When the Zombie Cries. MTW

WE CAN HEAR YOU NOW Hawaiian Telcom—which is owned by the immensely wealthy and influential Carlyle Group—moves up more than a couple notches this week on news that it’s finally getting its act together. They’ve got a new Chief Financial Officer—Paul Sunu—who has tons of telecommunications experience. What’s more, they just announced that they lost less money in 2006 than in 2005: $144.6 million in 2006 versus $159.6 million the year before. And the company recently announced that they’re going to hold off starting web-based television service until “we could ensure a reliable customer experience,” said HT CEO Michael Ruley in the Apr. 3 Honolulu Advertiser. Let the good times roll!

On Aug. 31, 2006, I cancelled my Hawaiian Telcom phone service. Because of the timing of my cancellation–due to my moving, not the actual service, which was never a problem–HT owed me $28.15. I found this out in late January when the company sent me what eerily resembled a bill—complete with return envelope—except written next to the phrase “Total Amount Due” was “$28.15 CR.” The “CR” of course stood for “Credit,” which the HT customer service rep confirmed to me when I called the next day. Though she said HT would be paying me the $28.15 very soon, nothing much happened until late February, when I got another fake bill for $28.15 CR. Ignoring that, I got another fake bill in late March, again for the same amount, which was tagged as a credit. But then, on Apr. 3, I opened my mailbox and found an actual legal check from Hawaiian Telcom in the amount of $28.15. In other words, it took Hawaiian Telcom—a company owned by a private equity firm worth billions of dollars—seven months to pay me $28.15, yet they would have come down on me with both feet if I had withheld a similar check from them for a tenth of that time. That may not be fair, just or equitable, but it is powerful. MTW

SELLING CELLS The West Tennessee Detention Facility (Mason, Tenn.) made a video pitch for California inmates, hoping some would volunteer to be outsourced under that state’s program to relieve overcrowding. The hard-timers should come east, the video urged, because of West Tennessee’s “larger and cleaner jail cells, 79 TV channels, including ESPN, views of peaceful cow pastures, and... the ‘Dorm of the Week,’ [with its inmates] staying up all night, watching a movie and eating cheeseburgers or pizza,” according to a March description in Nashville’s Tennessean. “You’re not a number here,” said one inmate. “You come here, it’s personalized.” California’s outsourcing program is currently facing a lawsuit from the prison guards’ union, anxious about job loss.

Retired German farmer Karl Szmolinsky told reporters in January that he had agreed to visit North Korea in April to give tips on how he managed to breed huge rabbits (around 20 to 25 pounds), which he believes the Koreans view as one answer to their hunger crisis. He has already sent a sampler of 12 monster rabbits, which should produce 60 offspring a year, with one providing “a filling meal for eight people,” he told Der Spiegel.


NEWS THAT SOUNDS LIKE A JOKE Alabama state officials announced in February that they had identified more than $438,000 in abuses of the financial aid program at Bishop State Community College in Mobile, including $87,000 in athletic scholarships awarded to 42 relatives of employees (and others) who played no sports. Included was one employee’s 67-year-old disabled grandmother, who received scholarships in three sports but was unable to use them, in that she passed away shortly after the paperwork came through.

HARD WORK According to a Beijing Youth Daily report distributed by Reuters news service in February, an unidentified Chinese businessman posted an online job offer for a “substitute” mistress. That is, in order to save his marriage, he had agreed to allow his wife to beat up his mistress and thus needed a stand-in to absorb the whipping, to spare the real mistress. He offered the equivalent of about $400 per 10 minutes of pain.

BAD CALL In Omaha, Neb., in February, Kevin Oliver, 36, was convicted of criminal impersonation for tricking two women into giving him urine samples by convincing them, falsely, that he was a recruiter for T-Mobile and needed the samples for their employment applications.

A group of “extremist” rabbis (the Sanhedrin, about 70 in number) announced in February that they want Judaism to resume the centuries-ago practice of including animal sacrifices in services. They add that resumption should start, for historical reasons, in the Jerusalem compound of Temple Mount (but known primarily now as Islam’s Al Aqsa Mosque).

The New York City children’s services agency took away former “breatharian” David Jubb’s 20-month-old son in February after Jubb refused to let physicians treat the boy’s fractured ankle. As mentioned previously in News of the Weird, breatharians believe that humans can subsist primarily on air and sunlight. Jubb said he has evolved since those days and now eats, but extremely few calories’ worth, and he drinks his own urine. MTW

ROBREPORT bought the entire lot, including a mill saw, drying kiln, grappling hooks and chains. Now licensed and bonded as Eco Maui Koa, Russell has a spacious workshop under a soaring, tarpaulincovered log lean-to in his forested gulch mauka of Pi`iholo Hill. In the midst of his workshop, a treasure trove of polished and unfinished hardwoods, Russell can relate the origin of nearly every piece of wood. His thick silver hair pulled back in a ponytail, he speaks animatedly about rescuing wood that otherwise would have been headed for the Maui landfill. “They refer to me as the ‘Tree recycling guy’ now,” Russell says. “I was driving by Pu`unene when they were taking down some of those old monkeypod trees, and I asked them what would happen to all the wood. Later that day I got a hold of two trucks and hauled as much as I could. It’s beautiful wood, see here?” Last July and August, I saw Russell many mornings at Baldwin Beach Park, as we both sipped our coffee and watched the seasonal erosion claim several towering ironwood trees on the beachfront. Eventually, two stately false kamani (Indian almond) trees perhaps 70 years old were undermined and toppled into the surf. When talk of replanting them was deemed to have little chance of success, Russell asked the tree contractors hired by the County of Maui if he could save them hauling and disposal costs. They obliged, and he went to work trucking the kamani and ironwood logs up to his mill. Russell offers hardwood slabs by the board foot, and also crafts benches, tables, doors, bowls, and other pieces. He uses no screws or nails in fastening his work. He has earned the respect of local craftsmen, and even state enforcement officers. A while back, Department of Land and Natural Resource personnel paid him a visit. They were responding to a complaint that he was harvesting

koa off state lands. He walked his acreage with them, showing them a map of his property, as well as his operation. They left understanding that he was working hard, earning a living off his land, without harming the natural resources in the adjacent state forest reserve. Later one of the men called Russell back to alert him of potential grant applications to assist his ventures. Russell plants 10 koa seedlings for each one he harvests. With an abundance of acidic eucalyptus, and invasive strawberry guava, the seedlings need some help. He says it’s important to plant them in the mulch from around the stumps of decaying or dead koa trees, their “family.” In a small way, the energy and ingenuity of Jitendra Russell’s Eco Maui Koa business serves as a visible example of the viability of local ag-forestry. This small scale, local effort has avoided the pitfalls of 20,000 acres of former Hamakua sugar lands on the Big Island, now planted in eucalyptus. A $30 million processing mill ran into financing difficulty and was never built. The wood was intended for chipping, but also could have been used for plywood and veneer. Now, it is being considered as biomass feedstock for ethanol production. Presently, the straight rows of monocropped trees continue to reach skyward, while the promise of up to four hundred jobs created is on hold. Back on that morning in June, it seems that the Leeward Haleakala Watershed Restoration Partnership effort was off to a much more auspicious beginning. Kaleikoa Ka`eo chanted portions of the Kumulipo, or Hawaiian creation chant, relating the birth of the plants and the animals in the koa forest. Soon after, a rare morning rain graced the event, to the delight of those gathered at Ulupalakua Ranch. “The rain today is a blessing,” state Senator J. Kalani English said in a Haleakala Times article by Jan Welda Fleetham. “[A]s the chants were being invoked, the clouds gathered and a light rain began to fall. It is an affirmation from the ancestors, that this is the right thing to be doing.” MTW

Maui TIME “Seven years ago, when she turned pro, Chris Evert was a chunky teen-ager with a pretty frown of concentration and a strong game.

APRIL 12, 2007


n case you haven’t heard, His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama is coming to Maui. He will be speaking April 24 and April 25 at the War Memorial Stadium. Originally, he was scheduled to speak at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center, but public response was so great that organizers had to book a bigger venue. This response isn’t necessarily surprising to me—I mean, it’s Maui and we enjoy a certain level of “enlightenment”—spiritual, but not quite religious. Anyway, the real problem I had with all this hubbub about the Dalai Lama is that it made me feel secretly stupid. See, I don’t really know a damn thing about the Dalai Lama except that he has a buzz cut, wears a lot of robes and is kind of adorable. I figured I must have missed something severely important in my World Religion class while I was busy making out behind the weight-room, because obviously (according to ticket sales, at least) everyone and her fifth grader knows all about the Dalai Lama. Sometimes it’s fabulous to be wrong. “Oh, yeah! The Dalai Lama is cool,” said my brother, who has a degree in philosophy. “I’ve seen him speak before on Maui. He’s really funny.” Actually, this is the Dalai Lama’s first visit here. But my brother isn’t alone: when I asked a bunch of people about their thoughts on the Dalai Lama, I discovered that the majority are either really confused about him, have mistaken him for someone else or would rather die than risk sounding stupid on the record by answering the question. For instance, a good friend of mine instant-messaged me his thoughts: “[W]ell he likes to golf... he is verrrrrry funny, always telling us jokes when we are having prayer... im not a tibetan monk ya know.” And then there is my husband... When I asked him about the Dalai Lama he was like, “Is that just one guy or is it like the Pope? You know how lots of different people become the Pope?” He graduated from Kamehameha School, by the way. Maybe I just surround myself with dummies. Then again, it made me feel a hell of a lot better to find out that I wasn’t the only one with a less than average understanding of who the Dalai Lama is and what makes him so special. That’s the problem. The Dalai Lama is special. You can’t argue that point. It would be a real shame if we all just sat here and pretend to be all knowledgeable and subsequently miss out on a potentially really cool experience because of a little pride. Okay, that was a little dramatic. So without further ado, here is everything you need to know about the Dalai Lama so that you can go and see him speak and actually feel good about it.

The Dalai Lama is a Buddhist from Tibet. He has been living in exile in India since 1959. There have been 13 other Dalai Lama’s before him. Each is believed to be incarnations of the other. Therefore it’s like the same guy in a different body in a different time. The Dalai Lama is believed to be the human incarnation of Avalokiteshvara—“The Lord who looks down”—or the Buddha of Compassion. The proper way to address and refer to the Dalai Lama is “His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.” If you check out any books that he’s written, you’ll see “HH” as part of the author name. That means “His Holiness,” which I think is kind of endearing. His name is Tenzin Gyatso, but he was born Lhamo Thondup on July 6, 1935 in a small farming community in Taktser, Amdo in northeastern Tibet. That makes him a Cancer born in the Year of the Boar.

APRIL 12, 2007


At the age of two, it was decided that he was the incarnation of the 13th Dalai Lama who had passed away a few years before. Basically what happened is that the Tibetan government formed a search party to find the new incarnation of the Dalai Lama and several strange things happened. First of all, while the 13th Dalai Lama was lying in state, his head turned from facing south to northeast. The government took this as a sign that maybe they should start looking there. Then a senior lama had a vision that led them to the door of young Lhamo Thondup’s family. They were farmers. His mother gave birth to 16 children—seven of which survived infancy. The search team brought in a bunch of earthly possessions that had belonged to the late 13th Dalai Lama and set them down with other objects in front of the young Lhamo Thondup. He was about two at the time, but he apparently then picked up the stuff that had belonged to the 13th Dalai Lama and said, “It’s mine! It’s mine.” The Dalai Lama speaks English, as well as many other languages. “I’ve been a practicing Buddhist since I was 13,” Wailuku attorney Lance Collins told me. “In 2006 I was in India for a Lalachakra initiation with the Dalai Lama. He speaks English, but if he is talking about something very technical, according to the level of discussion he will do it in Tibetan and have a translator relay the message to the audience.”

POLITICS, POLITICS We’ve all seen the “Free Tibet” bumper stickers. Yeah, this is Dalai Lama stuff. But what does it mean? “Tibet was an independent country and then the Chinese army entered Tibet in 1950,” Collins said. “For seven years, the Dalai Lama tried to work with them toward a peaceful solution, but it didn’t work. The Chinese were very oppressive. In 1959 Tibet officially ‘fell’ when the Dalai Lama and about 100,000 other people left for India. He left Tibet because his life was in serious danger.” In 1950, the Dalai Lama assumed full political power as Head of State and Government of Tibet. In 1963, while already in exile, he made a draft constitution for a future Tibet that is very democratic in nature. It states that the political power the Dalai Lama holds can be taken away by a two-thirds majority vote by members of the Assembly. HH has referred to himself as “a simple Buddhist Monk” and has been quoted on his website as saying, “Regarding Politics, I have no modern education except for a little experience... It is a big job for someone not so well equipped...I feel that the institution of the Dalai Lama has served its purpose... Half jokingly and half seriously I say that I am now in semiretirement.” Semiretired or not, according to Collins, China is still out to get HH. “There is a group of people—religious zealots—who are sponsored by the Chinese government that tend to start making threats toward the Dalai Lama before major international appearances.” On April 6 of this year, the Gulf Daily News reported that, “Tibetan officials in exile in India have

stepped up security for the Dalai Lama following media reports that he faced threats from Islamist militants, police said yesterday. The Tibetan government-in-exile based in the north Indian hill station of Dharamsala, where the Dalai Lama lives, had increased the number of guards at his palace while police had raised alert levels around the town.” Where the threats are originating from is unclear, but the bottom line is that the Dalai Lama is still a very watched political leader. So much so, in fact, that the Chinese have undermined the Dalai Lama by kidnapping a leader he appointed and replacing him with one of their own. Called the Panchen Lama, he’s the second-highest-ranking lama after the Dalai Lama in the Gelugpa sect of Tibetan Buddhism. “When a lama dies, the other lama’s will find him,” Collins said. “There’s a specific way that the Tibetans have to doing this. When the Panchen Lama died, the current Dalai Lama was part of the group that found and recognized his reincarnation. Then, the new Panchen Lama was kidnapped by the Chinese government. It’s been about 10 years and he’s never been located. The Chinese then appointed their own Panchen Lama, but he has not been recognized by most of the Tibetan people as the true reincarnation.” Lama Dhondup Gyaltsen, the head of the Tashi Pendy Society in windward Maui agreed. “The Panchen Lama appointed by the Chinese is only posing,” he said. “The Tibetans outside [of Tibet] have never believed, but the people inside do not have a choice but to recognize him as a political leader, but we never believe that he is the true Panchen Lama.”

BOOKS HH has written about 70 books. Many are geared toward an American audience and have hit bestseller status. The Art of Happiness is extremely popular. “I have read all of his books that have been printed in English,” Collins said. “My favorite is probably The Wisdom of Forgiveness.”

for Freedom Award in 1993 from The Freedom Coalition in Melbourne Australia; the World Security Annual Peace Award, on in 1994 from the New York Lawyer’s Alliance; the Man of the Year award in 2002 from the Croatian Academic Society; the Human Rights award in 2003 from the International League for Human Rights.


Of all the Dalai Lamas, HH the 14th is the second oldest to date. Turns out many Dalai Lamas—physically, at least—don’t live very long. In fact, the 9th Dalai Lama died at the age of nine, and four others never saw their 30th birthday. According to my math, the average lifespan of a Dalai Lama is 42 years. As a child, HH the Dalai Lama insisted his teeth were in a box. When the box was located it was found to contain the old dentures of the 13th Dalai Lama. HH the Dalai Lama had a brother who was recognized as the incarnation of another high lama. According to Barry Wurst, a former Mauian and film professor in Colorado, “The Dalai Lama became a visible personality in Hollywood during the late 1990’s, befriending Richard Gere, Harrison Ford and, most importantly, Ford’s then-wife, Melissa Matheson (who wrote the screenplay to E.T.). She wrote a script detailing the tumultuous life of His Holiness, called Kundun, which became a hot project for Disney. Not to be outdone, Sony greenlit the much-hyped Seven Years in Tibet and both films were released within months of each other in Fall 1997 and were expensive flops (it should be noted that the Martin Scorsese-directed Kundun is extraordinary, while the Brad Pitt-starring Seven Years is extraordinarily boring).” When HH the Dalai Lama is “at home” in India he often uses a treadmill and listens to the BBC World News in English. Contrary to popular belief, he is not a strict vegetarian. He never eats dinner.

HIS MAUI VISIT COMMITMENTS The Dalai Lama is a man on a mission. Seriously. He works 17-hour days. He’s said he spends “80 percent of my time on spiritual activities and 20 percent on Tibet as a whole.” According to HH’s official website (you better believe that he has one), he explains his commitments: “Firstly, on the level of a human being, my first commitment is the promotion of human values such as compassion, forgiveness, tolerance, contentment and self-discipline. All human beings are the same. We all want happiness and do not want suffering... Secondly, on the level of a religious practitioner, my second commitment is the promotion of religious harmony and understanding amongst different religious traditions. Despite philosophical differences, all major world religions have the same potential to create better human beings... My third commitment is to the Tibetan issue. I have a responsibility to act as the free spokesperson of the Tibetans in their struggle for justice. As far as this third commitment, it will cease to exist once a mutually beneficial solution is reached between the Tibetans and Chinese. However, my first two commitments I will carry on till my last breath.”

Rinchen, from the Maui Dharma Center in Paia, says that the Dalai Lama will be on Maui for less than 48 hours: “His flight details are confidential, but from here he will be speaking in San Francisco on the 27th.” Most of the details of HH the Dalai Lama’s Maui visit are confidential. What is clear is that he will not be staying at the Maui Dharma Center. He will bless the stupa that is being built in Paia the morning of Apr. 24 in a private ceremony. Motorists should expect delays as Baldwin Ave. will be closed for an undisclosed amount of time. Details of the road closure were not available at press time. After blessing the stupa, HH the Dalai Lama will hold a free public talk on “The Human Approach to World Peace” at the War Memorial Stadium. Rinchen encourages people to arrive when the gates open at 10 a.m. even though the speech doesn’t begin for another four hours. “We’re expecting a lot of people,” Rinchen said. “There will be food and drink, and although it’s a long wait the atmosphere should be very festive.” On Apr. 25, HH the Dalai Lama will discuss, “Eight Verses for Training the Mind: A Buddhist Philosophical Discourse” at the War Memorial Stadium. The cost for this event is $20.

ACHIEVEMENTS Over the course of his life, HH has received nearly 90 awards from various nations. While they’re all prestigious, it would bore your socks off if I listed all of them. The most notable are: The Nobel Peace Prize in 1989; The Distinguished Peace Leadership Award in 1991 from the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation; the International Valiant

So now after reading this I hope you no longer feel like a complete idiot (like I did) when people start talking about the Dalai Lama. In fact, next time someone asks you about the Dalai Lama you can give him a knowing smile and chew their ear off until they scream. No need to thank me. And Happy Enlightenment. MTW

‘It Gets Packed’ The wonderfully reasonable Matteo’s Pizzeria At first I couldn’t tell what was different about the sweetsmelling pizza that was dusted with parmesan cheese and placed in front of me. It hit me after a few moments: rather than mix up the four toppings (artichokes, prosciutto, black olives and mushrooms) the chef had placed them in their own sections—all the olives covering these two slices, all the mushrooms over there, a healthy slice of prosciutto next to that, and so on, with just the barest mixing of toppings at the edges.

Matteo’s Pizzeria 100 Wailea Ike Dr., 874-1234. Open Mon.-Sat., 11 a.m.-10 p.m.; Sun, 4 p.m.-9 p.m. $ The only place I know of where you can find a pizza like that—on this island, at least—is Matteo’s Pizzeria in Wailea. It’s called the Quattro Stagione, and you can get it in a thin crust eight-inch version like I enjoyed or with a thicker 16-inch pan crust. Like Matteo’s itself, it’s quite different than what you’re used to. Opened a year or so ago by Matteo Mistura, formerly of Ferraro’s at the Four Seasons, Matteo’s offers some of the best and most reasonably priced Italian

food you’ll find on Maui. Like some pizza joints on the mainland, they save costs by having everybody order and pay the beautiful woman working the counter when you walk in, who then gives you a number on a slim metal stand you place on your table so the food runner can find you. Still, sitting outside on Matteo’s balcony that overlooks the ocean and one of Wailea’s many golf courses, I could hardly believe the delicious and filling pizza I was quickly dismantling cost about $11. As I ate, Samantha and Wendy similarly made short work of their meals. Sam opted for Gianna’s Salad, which contains mixed greens, Radicchio lettuce, tomates, bleu cheese all tossed with extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar, while Wendy opted for the Vegetarian Sandwich, which has roasted vegetables, melted Mozzarella cheese and basil on a multigrain Italian roll. As they ate they sipped from flutes filled with Prosecco. “What’s Prosecco?” I asked while drinking Coca-Cola from a paper cup that bore that company’s logo. “Do you want a sip?” Samantha asked. “It tastes like really dry sparkling white wine,” I said after my taste. “Exactly!” Later our friend Scott showed up. I figured he would—not simply because I invited him to show up, but because his office is next door, and the way he talks about Matteo’s I figured he goes there every day anyway. He ordered the

Ligurian Pizza, which is topped with shrimp, Mascarpone cheese and Genovese Pesto, though I couldn’t help but notice that his toppings were all mixed together. Of course, some people just go to Matteo’s for the daily lunch and dinner specials. “They’re phenomenal,” Scott said. “Last time I was here they had an ahi carpaccio wrapped around cantaloupe. They’re all like threecourse meals.” Matteo’s was very quiet and peaceful when we had our lunch there, but Scott assured us it’s different at night. “It gets packed,” he said. “After about 6:30, there’s a line out the door.” MTW

ThIS WEEK’S PICKS by Samantha Campos

It’s All Greek to Me Friday-Sunday (now through Apr. 29), 7:30 p.m.; with Sunday matinee, 5 p.m. at Iao Theater [MUSICAL] Greek? Roman? Who knows? Pseudolus, Hero, Philia, Senex, Marcus Lycus, Domina, Erronius, Gymnasi, Fertilla the Populator... It’s “A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Forum” at the Iao Theater. This musical is based on the farces of the ancient Roman playwrights. Basically, a slave is trying to gain his freedom by winning the hand of the girl next door for his master. It sounds a little Cyrano deBergerac to me, which is cool. Maui OnStage first put this on back in 1979, and then they did it again in 1994 (it was actually the first play Maui OnStage play to take place at the MACC. The bottom line is that it’s supposed to be really funny, plus the whole Grecian/Roman look is very “in” right now so you can go and get some fashion ideas from the costumes. Multitasking at its finest. Tickets: $20, Iao Theater, 244-8680. [LILIANA BEGLEY]

Hey Baby, What’s Your Sign? Saturday (Apr. 14), 7:30 p.m. at The Studio Maui, Haiku [ASTROLOGICAL CELEBRATION] My best friend is an Aries. She’s dramatic, moody, beautiful, stylish, funny, sensitive and responsible. I’m not sure if these qualities are pretty standard Aries things (I’m a self-centered Crab, myself), but if they are it really is a great excuse to celebrate the sign. Low and behold, The Studio Maui is holding a “Zodiax Party” this Saturday to do just that. It promises lots of dancing fueled by DJ PLush, comedy by InsPirates, palm readings, tarot and vedic astrology. According to, Aries and Cancers aren’t supposed to get along—something about vulnerable Cancers and mean ol’ Aries—we’ve been friends for 24 years now, which means at least we both love being miserable. I’ll celebrate that. Admission: $5, The Studio Maui, Haiku Marketplace, 575-9390. [LB]

[SUSTAINABILITY FAIR] Fairs are extravagant events of excessive energy use and whirling lights. Everybody loves a good fair, even energy conscious conservationists bent on demolishing the nuclear family ideal. That’s why they like to throw their own fair with a green car show, Australian didgeridoo music, a Jerry Mander Sustainability Practices discussion, and a “sustainability concert” finishing off with the movie Whale Dreamers. The green cars will be Maui residents with low emissions and/or high gas mileage with proud owners showing them off at 11a.m. Alanna Chaney is performing the Australian didgeridoo music at noon with the popular activist writer and director of the International Forum on Globalization Jerry Mander following at 1 p.m with his keynote speech. Later, the Sustainability Concert (hopefully with Marty Dread) will play at 4 p.m. And 6:45 p.m. heralds the Whale Dreamers movie premier and the beginning of all the other Earth Day events on Maui. Woot to da ‘aina! [KIRA SABINI]


Samuel Beckett, winner of the Nobel Prize for literature, forever changed the concept of drama and the course of theater with the appearance of a single play, “Waiting for Godot.” After its first production in New York in 1956, Brooks Atkinson, the then incredibly influential theater critic for the New York Times, followed with a review in which he was at a loss for words to describe Beckett’s vision. He called Godot, “a mystery wrapped in an enigma.” He, like most others who saw the play, was left speechless by the brilliance, the incredible humor and the lilting gifted words, so purely Irish that float out at us from the stage. The background is an unknown landscape that my current producer calls “la zone.” The men who speak the words might be found in any pub in Ireland but instead have landed, devoid of accents, identification and labels, into that Land of Truth where our souls so long to be. I love this play because it loves the sweet earth we live on and it bares our hearts in simple and profound ways. Just a few days ago Harold Pinter, London’s foremost playwright and film script writer, appeared on Charlie Rose and talked about the influence of Beckett and his work. The theater has been transformed by Beckett and opened the stage for young gifted playwrights to bring their creative visions to a more open and receptive audience. Knowingly or not, we have all benefited by Sam’s audacity to create laughter in the dark. Len J. Allison, Director Characters

Pass Over Lightweight horror plagues all concerned The Reaping is a would-be horror movie that defies its own anemic logic. The screenwriters set the story in the “Deep South” as the only place in the country where a population might embrace the plagues of Exodus to the extent of killing their own children. A river turns to blood in the fictitious small-town of Haven, Louisiana where creepy schoolteacher Doug Blackwell (David Morrissey) calls upon professional miracle debunker Katherine Winter (Hillary Swank) to visit and explain the strange occurrence. An abandoned little blonde girl/devil doll named Loren (AnnaSophia Robb) runs aimlessly through the area’s swampy back woods after being blamed by townsfolk for the death of a boy at the river’s edge before it turned crimson red. Katherine suffered a crisis of faith after her husband and daughter were murdered in the Sudan while the family was there on a religious mission, yet constant flashbacks to that chapter of her past provide no insight to the story at hand. The filmmakers furnish a gratuitous Exorcist allusion in the guise of Father Costigan (Stephen Rea) whose photos of Katherine with her family in the Sudan, spontaneously combust to form an upside-down sickle when placed together. Rea, who has given the kiss of death to as many films as have endured his graceless presence, serves an irrelevant subplot that


APRIL 12, 2007

never pays off. To this end, the whole film is made up of detached episodes interspersed with raining frogs, lice, maggots, dying cows, people breaking out with boils, locusts and the murder of children—although the screenwriters inexplicably play this tenth plague climax as something that the locals have participated in for years. For audience members not keeping count, the picture waffles on the Bible’s plagues of raining rocks and constant darkness. I took it as a show of mercy, considering how long the movie already seems.

The Reaping



(Zero stars)

Devil doll

Rated R/96 mins.

A crucial plot-point is lifted from Rosemary’s Baby when Doug takes advantage of hosting Katherine and her ineffectual sidekick Ben (Idris Elba) in the shelter of his moss and mold-covered gothic mansion. On a night when Ben is away, Doug drugs Katherine and rapes her, although it’s never concretely divulged whether the event is a nightmare or an actual violation. As such, director Stephen Hopkins (The Life and Death of Peter Sellers) commits an irresponsible narrative act that negates all significance, save for the sequel that the situation indi-


cates at the film’s denouement. The Oscars that Hillary Swank won for Boys Don’t Cry and Million Dollar Baby do not acknowledge her severely limited acting range. Swank had the good fortune of giving two strong performances in two good movies, but has tread water through every other role she’s played—the worst being her wayward period piece The Affair of the Necklace. Here, as in her miscast roles in Insomnia and The Black Dahlia, Swank is nothing more than an obedient prop being positioned in front of the camera where she visibly seeks approval. The antithesis of a Cate Blanchett type

of actress, Swank defaults to presenting, rather than representing, characters she doesn’t understand. Her instinct is always to play emotion over intellect. It’s a recipe for failure when the source material is mediocre at best. That isn’t to say that the text for The Reaping is anything other than an insulting piece of unintelligible exploitation hackwork. In a movie with no purpose beyond small-scale grotesque spectacle, I can only imagine its purpose as a cinematic waiting room for the end of the world where the guy in charge isn’t capable of counting to 10.

Following the Fire Horse Looking into The Legend of the Fire Horse Woman The Legend of the Fire Horse Woman by Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston, Kensington Books, 2003. 329 pages. $15. By Eric Paul Shaffer When I opened The Legend of the Fire Horse Woman by Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston, I was expecting memoir, a personal account of historical events. I expected memoir because Jeanne Wakatsuki’s first book, coauthored with husband James D. Houston, is the celebrated Farewell to Manzanar, an account of her family’s internment in the Manzanar Relocation Center in California. In 1942, during the hysteria generated by the Japanese “surprise attack” on Pearl Harbor, 120,000 Americans of Japanese heritage were forced into concentration camps in the Western United States and Hawai`i. Farewell to Manzanar chronicles three years her family lived behind barbed wire. But, as I was saying before I so rudely interrupted myself, when you read The Legend of the Fire Horse Woman, you will be reading a novel, and a good one. Some may not know what a Fire Horse woman is. Many Westerners think the Chinese calendar is a 12year cycle, with each year named for an animal. For instance, 2007 is the Year of the Pig. The reality is more complex. The calendar actually revolves through a 60-year cycle pairing each year’s animal with one of a rotating sequence of the five Chinese elements, wood, fire, earth, metal and water. Thus, 2007 is a Fire Pig year. And once every 60 years, there is a Fire Horse year. Among the Japanese, who adopted the Chinese calendar, arose the unfortunate notion that a woman born in the year of the Fire Horse would ruin the lives of men with her fierce, stubborn nature. Such women were considered unmarriageable and became outcasts. The Legend of the Fire Horse Woman is a braid of the three lives of Teruko, known as Terri; her mother Hana; and Sayo, the eponymous Fire Horse Woman. All three are interned at Manzanar from 1942 to 1945, and the strands consist of their daily lives in the camp interwoven with the events of Sayo’s departure from Japan, Pacific passage, arrival in


APRIL 12, 2007

California and early life in America. The lives of these three women contrast so elegantly and distinctly that curiosity compels readers to discover how these generations can truly be grandmother, mother and child. Such are the changes wrought by arriving in California and joining the inexhaustible flux of American culture. Within the “contemporary” flow of events in 1942, the novel depicts the dissolution of Hana’s marriage. After internment, Hana gradually opposes the rule of her domineering husband Tad and because of her growing attraction to another man, she emerges as a strong, forceful woman. The family drama plays out against the backdrop of the events the Houstons detailed in Farewell to Manzanar: the confusion of early internment, modifying the barracks into living space, the “Manzanar riot,” the controversy that divided over their national allegiances and the induction of the men into the armed forces of the very nation that supposedly doubted their loyalties. Terri, the 13-year-old daughter of Hana and granddaughter of Sayo, befriends Billy, one of the soldiers in the guard towers constructed at the barbed-wire borders of the camp. As they converse across the fence, Terri reminds Billy that she is an American citizen and proves she knows more about the United States than he does. He reveals his doubts about the internment, and he brings Terri gum and movie magazines as gifts to ease her isolation from the culture in which she was born and raised. Terri also has visions of Native Americans, ghosts who speak to her and dance in the firebreaks between the barracks. These are Paiutes, on whose land the camp was hurriedly constructed. She learns the tribe had comfortably inhabited the Owens Valley before the Los Angeles Water Authority drained it to a desert. The visions, startling as they


Barry Shannon 1940-2007 Mana`o Radio part-owner and founder Barry Shannon died Saturday, Apr. 7 at the age of 67. Back in 2002 Shannon and his wife Kathy Collins started the low power station (91.5 FM) to bring an eclectic blend of non-corporate music to Maui. A few years ago I interviewed Shannon, Collins and a few members of the Mana`o Radio staff for the Jan. 15, 2004 story “Free Radio.” Here’s an excerpt of that story in which Shannon and Collins talk about their hopes and expectations for the station:

seem, lead to surprising revelations about her family heritage. The history of Sayo is the enduring and essential thread. The tale of her arrival in San Francisco as a picture bride, the subsequent dissolution of that marriage, and her partnership with the mysterious Cloud lead to the establishment of the “Heavenly Cloud Inn,” a decidedly American version of a Japanese teahouse in Watsonville. Sayo is the untamed Fire Horse woman, a repository of wisdom and strength, upon which both Hana and Terri depend. As wise old grandmother, Sayo constantly surprises, making startling decisions and dispensing unexpected advice. Her commitment to enduring and overcoming all the challenges of life, fair, unfair and overwhelming, is the heart of the novel. The details of her existence are absorbing, and the enrichment of our American history provided by the interwoven Japanese experience is remarkable, but the strength and humor Sayo demonstrates at every twist of fate is what makes the tale well worth reading and the story effortlessly memorable. MTW

“Since we’ve been on the air I’ve had over 4,000 people call me up asking for a slot,” said Barry Shannon, Mana`o Radio’s general manager who also handles the weekday 2-5 p.m. timeslot. “It’s frustrating that I have to write so many emails and ruin their whole day. Having been there, I understand. But when people are loyal to us, I want to return it. We’ve lost only two people since we went on the air. But my hope is to pay the full-time people $1,000 a month plus insurance.” In not quite two years, Mana`o Radio has gone from a shoestring operation broadcast out of Shannon’s back bedroom to a real, professional operation… Shannon said Mana`o Radio was only the 13th low power license granted in the country. Churches own most of the stations. “An act of Congress disqualified over a thousand applicants,” said Shannon, who’s worked in radio for virtually all of the last 50 years. “I have a feeling we’re one of the few professional operations.” Shannon’s wife of 14 years is Kathy Collins… A former news radio jock and Honolulu TV reporter who burned out on too many dead body stories, Collins now hosts the weekday 5-8 p.m. show. “When we first applied for our license there were just the two of us,” she said. “We had a computer, maybe a couple of friends. We had no idea how well it would be received. It never occurred to me that radio and music would mean so much to people. I’d thought radio was pretty much obsolete. I thought the days of people listening to the radio in their kitchens were over. Apparently they’re not.” -Anthony Pignataro



Meet the Intern: Favorite Albums of a Post Baby Boomer BEETHOVEN SYMPHONY #6 OP. 68 “PASTORAL” IN F MAJOR [CLASSICAL] While the Ninth is currently his most popular the upbeat, giddy Sixth has been a wonderful part of my Disney childhood. Complementing the best part of the original Fantasia musical—the unforgettable centaurs, fauns and drunken Dionysus frolicking in a pastoral paradise wouldn’t shimmy to any other swing. Today, it’s my pick-me-up.

LED ZEPPELIN “PHYSICAL GRAFFITI” [CLASSIC ROCK] Led Zeppelin is probably my favorite band, and these songs made me move while I was still learning to be comfortable with myself. I will always love the skilled slickness of Page’s riffs and Bonham’s accompanying drums. As Robert Lynch said, “In the relatively short history of the electric guitar in rock music, there have been few who can be labeled as ‘iconic.’ Mr. Page is one of those select few. His eclectic stylings, his compositional prowess, his studio mastery and innovation, and his stage presentation were all areas where he excelled like no other and foreshadowed many who have followed in his wake.” It’s hard for me to not also put albums I, II, III and IV on this list, but that might be overkill, even if they all make my lemon drip. —Atlantic Records 1994

TALKING HEADS “FEAR OF MUSIC” [NEW WAVE] All in all, I’d say I’m a rock fan with a flair for the eclectic. Talking Heads were crazy! The ‘80’s girl in me adores them and their creativity. While I always skip “Heaven,” “Animals” makes up for it. Whenever the news gets to me this album brings me back to reality. Who cares who’s blowing whom, this is life during wartime! —Warner Bros 1979

TOOL “AENIMA” [HARD ROCK] Tool is wonderful in that dirty, stinking, rebel way. You know, that activist-that-hasn’t-showered-since-the-last-time-his-parents-let-him -in-the-house kind of smell. But hey, mom’ll flush it all away so go ahead and reek today, there might not be tomorrow. —Volcano 1996

ZAP MAMA [WORLD BEAT] Smooth and catchy this “world” music combines African, hip-hop, and good taste in a palatable dollop of hip-shakin’ delight. Informed and informative, this band is sure to please the cynic, stoic, epicurean and skeptic alike. Again, no specific album lends itself as favorite but the sound is too pleasing to forget. Favoritism is not usually a game I consider as I select a song, but it’s important to know what you like so I attempted to compile a few albums that life wouldn’t sound the same without. A life without love is not worth living and a life without music is not worth hearing. Each of our personal stories has its own soundtrack, so it’s prudent to know what beat your feet step to. MTW

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Has spring fever hit you yet? Don’t let recent disappointments hold you back from being as adventurous and wild as you’ve ever been, because caution and restraint right now would keep you from truly experiencing one of the most exciting and inspiring weeks this season. Besides, although it’s good to have prudence and moderation as skills in reserve, by and large they don’t suit you Rams, who are supposed to be the wild boys and girls of the zodiac. Sometimes it’s good to contradict that stereotype— but this week we’d rather you lived up to it.

TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) Some musicians or albums stay in my rotation for a month or a year; others I never tire of (Billie Holiday, for example). Taureans, in general, are drawn to art, music and people who are with them for the long haul, rather than conforming to a specific, ephemeral mood. Sometimes, however, it’s confusing to determine which is which, when you’re in the moment. This week, step back and examine the people you’re tight with right now. Are they friends who are here today, but may be gone tomorrow, or are they likely to be in your life decades from now? What you do with that information is up to you; I just think it’s important that you have it.

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) It doesn’t matter if the odds are against you. Imagine you’re on a game show, being presented with a bag full of keys. If you choose the one that’ll start the brand new car, it’s yours. Sure, odds are you’re going to take the bus home, but there’s always that slim chance, which ought to be enough to get your heart pounding. Look for threads of hope this week, no matter how slender. Ignore the depressing abundance of more likely disappointment, and let those slim positive prospects motivate you; they’re your lifelines to the next chapter.

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Your reputation for being high-maintenance, while not entirely unjustified, is definitely unreasonably inflated; it’s based on a few isolated incidents, rather than taking into account the many times you were actually pretty chill. Unfortunately, there’s usually not much you can do to change the impression that you’re needy or emotionally fragile, once someone’s decided you are. Fortunately, this week is a rare chance to do exactly that, by keeping your cool when everyone else loses their heads, and coming up with the kinds of solutions others are too stressed out to think of.

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) Sometimes you get too attached to a certain idea: what your ideal job, friend, neighborhood, or lover should look like, for example. While in pursuit of that ideal, you let perfectly desirable scenarios (some even better than what you imagined) pass you by. The truth is, your ideal might be unattainable, or it might not even exist, which means you’ll never be content—unless you become a little more openminded and flexible. Allow yourself to be open to surprises, and you might find they’re almost all pleasant ones.

VACATION RENTALS CLEAN, AFFORDABLE Accommodations in our vacation rental from $69 per day. Call Toll Free Wailuku Guesthouse 877-9868270 or

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) One of my best Virgo friends was recently joking about her largely fruitless efforts to reign in a Pisces friend and make him conform to her responsible, scheduled and slightly anal ways. While I won’t argue that we’d all benefit from borrowing some of your efficiency and pragmatism, I can explain why most of us won’t bother: we can’t. We’re simply not wired the way you are. It’s almost like a superpower, the way you excel at getting shit done. Forgive us our failings, Virgo, and remember: this is why we need you.


LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) Sometimes when someone’s exceptionally talented in some way, others regard them as owing something to the world. It’d be a crime, they say, to deprive everyone of such beauty and brilliance. Forgive people for making demands of you, Libra. In a way, it’s an expression of admiration and love, and if you can find a way to fulfill their desires and make yourself happy, please do so. It’s all about finding that balance between what you need and what others want. You’re supposed to be good at that. This week, prove you are.

SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) There are times to vociferously resist and question authority. Once in a while, though, someone with power tries to do something right. That’s actually likely this week. Even though you may not like their methods or timing, arguing them would mostly be selfish, rather than righteous. No one’s asking you to help or support people who don’t have exactly your agenda. However, if their intentions are good and likely to at least partially succeed, it’d be mighty nice of you to simply get out of their way.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) You also often talk and act as if you’re less intelligent than you really are. This odd habit actually feeds directly into one of your greatest talents: being able to talk to anyone from any walk of life. Anyone who takes the time to get to know you figures out that there’s a keen mind lurking under your casually unpretentious exterior. But what about those who don’t get to know you? Especially those who might be in a position to influence your life? Sometimes, the superficial details matter. This week, what you wear (or something equally trivial) might, unfortunately, count for more than who you are.

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) Some people never grow up. It can be charming, like an Aries’ perpetual childlike ability to play. It’s less appealing when someone doesn’t take responsibility for their actions, especially those that affect you negatively. You have two basic options when that happens: School them and try to get them to clean up their own messes, or let it go and walk away. Most of the time I hope you do your best to fix the situation by correcting their behavior; it’s your right not to have your metaphorical toes stepped on, after all. This week, however, nothing you can say or do is likely to have any positive impact on the situation (in fact, it’ll only aggravate it, or you), so I’d advise the latter course: breathe deep, shake it off, and walk away.

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) You require a lot of stimulus to keep your sharp mind active and engaged. There are many situations you could potentially find tedious, and even if you temporarily stave off the boredom with a book, cellphone, or ipod, eventually it will catch up to you—especially this week. Therefore, take a cue from your astrological neighbor, Pisces. I’ve never met a bored Piscean; they find ways to be interested and entertained by even the dullest situations. I’m still not entirely sure how they do it; either they’re mildly autistic, or enlightened (or both). But I’m certain you could learn something from them, and should.

PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) You Fish have a very loose, fluid relationship with time. Sometimes that works in your favor; mostly, though, it means you lose track of it. You’re on the beach staring out over the water for just a few seconds; then you look down and notice you’re buried up to your knees in wave-carried sand. I’ve learned to interpret that a Piscean “be there in five minutes” usually means 20 or 30. I’m mostly okay with that, now that I know. Like me, most people will have no problem cutting you a little slack in this department; all you need do is give them a clue that it’s necessary.

Calling Mr. Johnson As far as I am concerned, being any gender is a drag. -Patti Smith Women have all kinds of issues about their bodies. We’re not worthy somehow if we’re not stick thin with a huge perky rack and a round, tight ass. And even then, we could stand to plump our lips, narrow our nose, lose those wrinkles, stretch marks, cellulite, etc. Blame it on the magazines, Hollywood, and chicks from Argentina—but actually, we’re not alone. It turns out men also have their own body image insecurities. I know this ‘cause I’ve been asking around lately. Over the past couple weeks, whenever I found myself in the company of a suave, sophisticated gentleman—or one of my guy friends—the repartee would go something like this: “Hi, Holoholo Girl! How are you?” “I’m great, thanks! How’s your penis?” Thankfully, nobody took my innocent inquisition as an opportunity for show and tell. And men seem to be pretty comfortable talking about their sex pistol; it’s obviously a subject they’ve thought a lot about. What I found out is that most men grew up feeling exactly the same way— that their penis could be bigger. Of course, this was irrational. According to a Kinsey Institute study, the average length is six inches; in a study by the University of California at San Francisco, the average erect penis measured 5.2 inches. Eventually the men I talked to gave up their enlargement surgery fantasies, and either learned to compensate for their size in other ways—by becoming more attentive and creative lovers, hallelujah!—but learned to love and accept their johnson for the superschlong of love that it is. “I love my penis,” said one. “It is perfect in every way.” “I have no issues now,” said another. “Aside from the fact that it has a mind of its own and never thinks it gets quite enough attention.” But the surprising thing about how guys feel about their bodies is that most do have nagging concerns, and like us women, it’s mostly to do with weight and aging. Not so much the huge rack. “The only real issue I have is with my stomach,” said one 30-something guy. “I hate it sometimes, and sometimes I embrace it as I would a Buddha’s on the mantle. It’s all fueled by the same crap women have to deal with—the incessant media image brainwashing that tells us what’s beautiful: six-pack abs, big tits, small asses, and so on. Although I really would look hot with, like, 15 lbs. less around my gut.” “Body image for me would be more wrapped up in the aging process,” said another guy, this one in his 40’s. “The fact that [my son] continues to steal my hair, weird nagging injuries preventing me from doing things I used to do physically, getting softer around my center—that sort of stuff.” “I hate the way I look in pictures,” said another 30-something dude. “But for some reason when I see myself in a mirror I think I look just fine. I’m not too happy with my gut—in fact, my weight in general—but then again I’ve always felt I was too heavy. I also grow hair on the edges of my ears and I hate that, someday I will get electrolysis on that to be done with it, but for now I shave or wax them to keep them hair free.” Samantha Campos doesn’t know where the natto comes from but thinks she could learn to love it.
