Maui Time co-founder Mark D’Antonio registers a complaint against MECO in Letters. Then News of the Weird gets to the bottom of a rash of subway gropings. Rob Report throws a bit of cold water on the Hawaii Bioenergy Master Plan. LC Watch asks why there are so many recycled people in the LC. Eh Brah! yells at some douche who killed a kitty. Coconut Wireless takes on water usage, commie conspiracies and free newspapers–all in one week! And Dowling shoots up the Maui 10 because of 25 smackers.

26 FILM Barry Wurst II not only saw Sex and the City, but liked it. No, he loved it! So much that he’s going to marry it! Okay, maybe not that much, but he did enjoy it, which says a lot more about Barry than you probably wanted to know.

LETTERSTOTHEEDITOR NO MORE ADJUSTMENTS! My recent MECO bill included an “Energy Cost Adjustment” of $131.74?? That about doubles the bill. I want to send a hearty and sarcastic Mahalo to Maui Electric Company for building their diesel burning power plants in Kula (expensive fuel boated in, trucked up Haleakala, past schools, etc) and then burned with a smoke trail that runs right over Kihei when the trades blow (glad I’m on the West Side). When you could have considered utilizing wind, solar, and even wave energy producers that would be leading the way in innovation and forward thinking rather than stereo-typing us on Maui with the “Old Boys State” stigma and greed that comes from petroleum based power. Let’s move FORWARD! The people of Maui cannot afford these fee “adjustments” nor should they, when we are surrounded by generous amounts of wind, solar and wave energy options from such a special place. I started the newspaper Maui Time with Tommy in 1997, and remember running the story on alternative energy in (1999?) when the Maui Electric “powers that be” decided that it would be in THEIR best interest to create more stable (and profitable) power from Diesel burning plants rather than look at any renewable alternatives. Regardless of the past, we have a chance to set an example here, a perfect opportunity to utilize the accumulated technology, knowledge and abundance of natural free resources to generate stable power here on Maui. Is MECO up to the challenge? -Mark D’Antonio, Lahaina

BIG THRILL (Editor’s note: the following letter is in reference to our May 15, 2008 story “Uneasy Rider: When will people get to bike down the volcano?”) Yeah, I was one of those who decided to experience the thrill. Got checked into the ER at 12:59 p.m. and was discharged with a fiberglass splint on a severely sprained right wrist and a brace on a less damaged left. Of course, this article came out the day after I hit that rock trying to get out of the way of a downhill car going maybe just a tad fast (yeah, I’ve been guilty of that, too). On my second day on the island. Sorry, I’m typing so slow—the splint is a hinderance. Ortho doc should give me the green light on Wed. -Dillon Pyron, Austin, Texas

NEWSOFTHEWEIRD THE BROTHERS GROPE Freddie Johnson, 49, was arrested in New York City in April, for the 53rd time after he allegedly once again rubbed up against women on crowded trains. He is such a menace (a 57-page rap sheet) that a special NYPD detail follows him around, certain that he will reoffend. Shortly after the arrest, the New York Daily News reported that his twin brother Teddy is now serving an eight-year sentence in upstate New York for a series of subway gropings of his own. A retired police officer told the Daily News that he saw the brothers almost every day and could tell them apart only by their clothes. Freddie, he said, was “blue collar” while Teddy conducted his fondlings “always dressed in a blazer and slacks.”

GOVERNMENT IN ACTION! In April, Army medic Monica Brown was awarded the Silver Star for bravery for selflessly subjecting herself to enemy fire in order to treat fallen comrades in battle in Afghanistan. But two days after her heroics, she was ordered home, against her will, because generals were nervous that a female appeared to be “in combat,” which violates Army rules. By contrast, in April (according to The Buffalo News), the Army, citing personnel shortages, ordered honorably discharged soldier James Raymond back to duty, even though he is on medical disability for a knee injury and loss of hearing suffered in Afghanistan.

Gary Weaver, 41, arrested on a disorderly conduct charge in Cincinnati, was discovered to have an outstanding theft warrant from 1990 involving $21.64. The temporary bond on Weaver in 1990, based on his prior record, had been $1 million, and the 2008 judge refused to change that. The $21.64 theft was based on Weaver’s paying a store in part with a roll of dimes that were really pennies but with a dime at each end.

London’s Daily Mail reported in April that the Mab Lane Primary School in Liverpool was boldly dealing with the problem of unruly students by scheduling 20-minute massage sessions twice a week in a room with aromatic oils and soothing music. Children of all ages at the school are taught “simple shoulder and back massages on each other,” the newspaper reported.

In April, police in East Hampton, Conn., investigating the accidental shooting of ex-Marine Joseph Simonelli, 60, by his nine-year-old son, seized “dozens of unsecured guns and mounds of loose ammunition” from the home, according to the Hartford Courant, which contained a “wideopen, chock-full gun cabinet in the boy’s bedroom [with] numerous rifles and knives strewn about the room.” According to police, bullet casings and live rounds lay “throughout the house,” and the walls of the boy’s bedroom bore “numerous small holes [made by a] bb/pellet gun or even small-caliber (.22) rounds being shot inside the home.” The boy told police that he “usually” only shoots his rifles when he’s outside.

Who’s Fueling Who? The lackluster start to the Hawaii Bioenergy kickoff meeting uch has been said of the urgent need to shift Hawai‘i’s 95 percent dependence on imported fuels for its transportation and electrical generation needs. In recent months, skyrocketing oil prices have produced sticker shock at the gas pump and on our electric bills. They’ve also plunged ATA and Aloha Airlines into collapse. Crude oil prices topped $100 a barrel for the first time on Jan. 2, and have quickly climbed to a record high of $135 a barrel. That means Hawai‘i will be sending more than $4 billion of its energy dollars out of the state this year. In terms of bolstering our economy, safeguarding our energy security and boosting self-sufficiency, exploring the local potential to produce biofuels seems logical. Hence the importance last week when the state Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism (DBEDT) convened a meeting in the basement auditorium of the capital building in Honolulu to start on the Hawaii Bioenergy Master Plan. But public testimony towards the end of the day left the impression that many are concerned the effort is too slow and not heading in the right direction. Hawai‘i’s leaders have already taken some significant steps to implement bioenergy in our state’s portfolio of fuel sources. In August 2006, Governor Linda Lingle called the Governor’s Biofuel Summit. The daylong discussion of opportunities and challenges cruised along well enough until Kauai Representative Mina Morita asked, “What are we doing to address food security?” The silence that followed hung in the room like volcanic haze on a windless day. Indeed, the question of using valuable agricultural lands and water for fuel rather than food is being debated worldwide. We currently grow less than 10 percent of the food we consume, and rising transportation costs have already led to higher prices at the grocery store. To many, the most important need is being self-sufficient in feeding ourselves, rather than filling the tanks of SUVs or running our air-conditioning in the months and years to come. Nevertheless, the 2007 state Legislature passed Act 253, which appropriated $300,000 towards preparing a “bioenergy master plan that sets the course for the coordination and implementation of policies and procedures to develop a bioenergy

industry in Hawaii.” It also established the Hawai‘i Natural Energy Institute within the framework of the University of Hawai‘i for developing “Renewable energy and energy efficient technologies.” The goal is to submit a final report, master plan and any proposed legislation before the convening of the 2009 state Legislature. ther state mandates set goals of 20 percent incorporation of renewable energy sources and 20 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2020. Governor Lingle also forged an agreement with the U.S. Department of Energy with a goal of 70 percent renewables by 2030. “I’m not Pollyanna-ish,” Lingle told last week’s audience. “The goals can be met… Our thirst for oil in fueling world terrorism.” Calling for cross-sector collaboration, she noted that the bioenergy master plan won’t be perfect, and people aren’t likely to sign on 100 percent. Yet she emphasized, “We can’t let us be derailed in this effort.” Following her remarks, Lingle signed a ceremonial copy of House Bill 3179, which allows leases of state land for renewable energy, and amends the definition of renewable energy producers to include growers of biofuel crops. Skillful and savvy in appeasing her detractors, Lingle presented the bill to Keynote Speaker David Cole of Maui Land & Pineapple Co., who earlier noted that “very little was achieved energywise,” in the 2008 legislative session. Two years ago Cole formed Hawaii BioEnergy LLC, with two other major landholders: Kamehameha Schools/Bishop Estate and Grove Farms of Kauai. Fueled with venture capital from three financial partners, they have been researching appropriate avenues and technologies for local biofuel production. Cole said he foresees UH becoming like a “green MIT.” He said Hawaii BioEnergy is looking to develop bio-jet fuel from algae and spoke of a “triple bottom line” of energy, economy and the environment. Cole said there are serious limitations to our existing policy network, that there is potential to offset $65 million leaving the state for imported ethanol, and that local feedstock needs pricing preference over imported fuels. In other words, biofuels may provide a better way, but they won’t likely be cheaper. “The price of green energy can’t be cheap,” said Dr. Fereidun Fesharaki, Chairman and CEO of FACTS Global Energy. “The price must be high to protect us from ourselves.” Fesharaki added that the U.S. uses more oil than the four major Asian economies— Japan, China, Korea and India—combined. Worldwide usage of oil averages 87 million barrels daily, though he believes cur-

Jumping Recently I chatted with a member of the LC, and this person’s observation caught me off guard. “What bothers me,” this person said, “are people that jump back and forth between the Liquor Commission and the Adjudication Board.” I had never thought of this before, so I looked over the lists of Liquor Commissioners and Adjudication Board members. Sure enough, there was a lot of overlap.



LC Watch

Members of these two boards are volunteers, appointed by the mayor and approved by the Maui County Council. They serve fiveyear terms and are, at least in theory, supposed to be independent. In actuality, they defer to Department of Liquor Control staff on just about everything. Mmm... non-bioenergy

rent reserves could handle up to 95 million barrels. Europe’s gas prices have already hit the $8-9 range, and people there are driving smaller cars that average up to 50 miles per gallon. Fesharaki believes that when U.S. gas prices hit $6-7 per gallon, demand will drop drastically. He also expects jet fuel prices to rise much faster than gas. He said that $200 a barrel crude oil prices are not out of the question. The website currently posts a one-year forecast of $172.91 per barrel. And Fesharaki said he expects greater utilization of oil “look-alikes,” including ethanol, biodiesel, shale oil, tar sands and Venezuelan “heavy oil.” ater, DBEDT Energy Engineer Maria Tome told the audience that two Hawai‘i refineries, Tesoro and

On the Liquor Commission, which approves liquor licenses and rules, four of the current eight members have previous experience on either the Adjudication Board or the commission itself. Two—Ron McOmber and Edwin “Ken” Yokouchi—once sat on the Adjudication Board, while Commissioners Robert Tanaka and Merlyn Winters previously sat on the Liquor Commission (Tanaka served two previous terms, actually). If you count the time before Commissioner James Viela—a former Adjudication Board member— resigned, then five of the nine commissioners had been there before. Over on the Adjudication Board, which sanctions licensees over liquor rule violations, three of the nine members have previous LC experience. Darren Lopez and Donald Fujii used to be Liquor Commissioners, while Jerrybeth DeMello served a previous term on the Adjudication Board. This kind of familiarity makes it very difficult for commissioners and board members to go against staff recommendations or even just ask critical questions. And when that’s the case, why even have these boards in the first place?

Not only where you speeding in 15-mph zone, you were also three doors down from a dead-end. Why so fast? I gave you nearly TWO MONTHS after the accident to come by and say something, anything. But the only thing you did was drive back real slow immediately after the hit, I assume to try to see what you did. You saw me holding her, blood running down my arm and pooling onto my foot. Then you sped off. I want you to know that yes, she suffered. The vet tried everything to save her. She held on for six days before dying. In the end, it was just too much for her. Even if she’d survived she would have lost a leg. You have no idea how hard it was to hear the thump, then pick her up off the street and listen to the gurgling sounds coming from her as the blood from her split palate began foaming out of her mouth and nose.




Hawai‘i and died 21 years ago—dabbled briefly in the American Communist Party, no question. This is hardly surprising, since most thoughtful, intellectual black men in the 1940’s leaned left because the right was too busy tying ropes around their necks. But only the warped mind of a Joseph McCarthy or a Cliff Kincaid would translate that life into “a security threat to the United States”—especially given the fact that communism pretty much died out two decades ago.


WEDNESDAY, May 21 So what should I write about today… American Airlines parking 85 aircraft and charging $15 to check baggage? Too much publicity already… Hawai‘i schools’ chronic inability to meet federal No Child Left Behind requirements? Too depressing… Probable Democratic presidential contender Barack Obama’s alleged role in an international communist conspiracy? Hot damn! “A new 44-page report to be released in Washington on May 22 reveals the existence of an international communist network in Hawaii that includes Barack Obama’s childhood mentor, identified Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis,” says a press release I just got from something called America’s Survival, Inc.—a far, Far, FAR right wing nut group headed by a loon named Cliff Kincaid who made a small name for himself bullying cable companies that wanted to carry Al Jazeera’s English-language satellite network. “The explosive new reports, which examine Barack Obama’s ties with extreme anti-American elements, including agents of the Moscow-controlled Communist Party USA, will shed important new light on Obama’s mysterious past and rise to power.” This is truly something: whispered slander that Obama is a Muslim has apparently (hopefully) run its course, so the mouth-breathers who make Dick Cheney look like a moderate are now yelling Pinko. Look, Davis—one of the great African American writers of the mid-20th century who did spend many years in

Today we’ve actually got some good news about the circulation of The Maui News. It’s gone up: According to the new Maui County Data Book, in 2007 the paper’s Monday through Saturday circulation was 20,777—down from 21,668 the year before. But these days, according to the latest figures from the Audit Bureau of Circulations (ABC)—the organization that tracks newspaper circ for the industry—Maui News circ is up to 20,937. Sunday circ figures are down slightly: 25,343 in 2007 according to the Data Book, 25,209 today according to ABC. I couldn’t figure out why the daily’s weekday numbers had shot up so high until I saw a brief note in the Maui Weekly, which is owned by Hawai`i Publications—the local arm of Wheeling, West Virginia-based Ogden Newspaper Group, which also owns The Maui News. According to this week’s Maui Weekly, The Maui News raised its circ “by increasing the number of papers distributed to hotel guests.” In addition, the paper “may have benefited from the departure of USA Today from daily distribution in Hawai‘i at the end of 2007,” reported the Maui Weekly. A lot of people don’t realize this, but the number of newspapers handed out free to hotel guests counts in official circulation figures. USA Today is a master of this practice. In fact, when it celebrated its 25th anniversary in September 2007, slightly more than half of its celebrated 2,278,022 circulated papers went to hotel guests around the country. “USA Today doesn’t get bought by 2.3 million people— at least not in the traditional sense of the word ‘bought,’” reported’s Public Eye feature on Sept. 15, 2007. “Instead, they carpet the hallways of America’s hotels, making ‘The Nation’s Newspaper’ more like The Nation’s Doormat.” If The Maui News is following USA Today’s model, then who exactly is its intended readership?

FRIDAY, May 23 Well, it’s official: the county Department of Water Supply (DWS) has declared Upcountry to be in a state of drought. “Based on the declaration of drought, the DWS issued a watch, which asks customers to reduce water consumption by 5%,” said A DWS press release sent

out last night. “The areas included are Haiku, Makawao, Olinda, Haliimaile, Pukalani, Kula, Omaopio/Pulehu, Kula, Keokea, Ulupalakua, and Kanaio/Waiohuli.” Just to make sure people throughout Central Maui don’t forget their drought status, the press release also included this quote from DWS Director Jeffrey Eng: “We need our customers in Wailuku, Kahului, Puunene, Paia, and especially Kihei to closely watch their water use and keep it to 600 gallons per day or less.”

SATURDAY, May 24 We need to watch our water use? What about the Maui County Council, who keeps approving new development for South Maui. When are they going to have to start watching their water use?

SUNDAY, May 25 What a week! Add to the list of crises facing our fair isle exploding debt. But at least, according to a giant story in today’s Honolulu Star-Bulletin, people are trying to get help. “Our client volume is up 26 percent over the same period last year and I know it’s going to get worse,” Wendy Burkholder of the nonprofit debt-counseling agency CCCS of Hawaii told the paper. “There has been an exponential rise in housing prices, utilities, water, and other living expenses like gas and grocery process. People are finally going under the wheels of the bus.” I’d say something glib and possibly

even witty here, but this just sucks.

MONDAY, May 26 For those of you who just can’t get enough bad news about our island’s current water problems, here’s a little drop of refreshment from today’s Maui News: consumer water use in both Upcountry and Central Maui has dropped from what it was last year at this time. In May 2007, Upcountry residents used 9.48 million gallons of water every day, but last week, they used just 7.64 million gallons. In Central and South Maui this time last year, residents consumed 27.41 millions a day, but used just 25.25 million gallons a day last week. This is considerable water conservation, but apparently not considerable enough. Look, county officials can continue to put the screws on current residents at the same time it tells land developers to go ahead and build thousands of new homes with mysterious, as-yet unnamed water sources, but given the fact that this is an election year, they might want to think about how much more of this people will take.

HANG UP! Carlyle Group-owned Hawaiian Telcom gets shoved back into the cellar this week on news that the state Public Utilities Commission rejected the company’s request to raise its credit by $60 million. At least part of the reason, according to the May 23 Honolulu Star-Bulletin, was a state Division of Consumer Advocacy (DCA) report saying the office was “gravely troubled” such an increase would have on HT’s well-being. Instead, the DCA recommended, Hawaiian Telcom should get its own financial house in order before asking to take on more debt. What a truly novel idea. Un-American in the extreme, but certainly worth considering.

And superrich land developer Everett Dowling shoots up the chart after it becomes clear that The Maui News will publish a story about him even if he does the smallest, most insignificant thing. Case in point is the May 25 blurb “Dowling Co. donates to 65 charities,” which highlights how Mr. Dowling generously gave the grand total of $25 to Akaku. You read that right: 25 American dollars–what’s that, about half a tank of gas these days? This guy has millions, and he writes a check for $25 and gets a POSITIVE story about in the paper. I suppose there is some irony here, given that a few years ago Dowling lobbied the state Legislature to slash Akaku’s budget, but that irony was apparently lost on The Maui News. MTW

ect in Chile. He expects to monitor productivity over three to five years. As with any planning initiative, our government works best when there is broad participation and input from citizens.

are at least a decade away. Dr. William Steiner of the UH-Hilo College of Agriculture traveled to Costa Rica to observe operations producing hybrids of African Oil Palms. He paid special attention to those adapted to highland climates, since Hawai‘i’s sub-tropical climate is not as ideal as many regions where the tree is commercially grown. He ordered 10,000 trees, four different strains, for a pilot planting project over 120 acres of the Big Island. But Steiner told me he’s still waiting for trees, since the first batch was sent instead to a proj-

Chevron, process a combined 155,000 barrels of oil daily, or 50 million barrels per year. Hawai‘i’s electrical generation depends heavily on petroleum—78 percent, compared to a national average of just two percent— making Hawai‘i by far the nation’s most oil-dependent state. Imported coal accounts for another 13 percent of our electricity. She also noted that Hawai‘i is one of only nine states that does not offer E-85 fuel (85 percent ethanol, 15 percent gasoline) capable of supplying flex fuel vehicles. Department of Agriculture Chair Sandra Lee Kunimoto displayed a chart of the top 10 farm commodities statewide. At nearly $100 million annually, genetically engineered seed crops outpaced pineapple and sugar, with macadamia nuts and coffee holding the next two places. Amazingly, virtually all the genetically modified seed corn planted in the Mainland U.S. is produced in Hawai‘i, on slightly less than 5,000 acres spread over four islands. Kumimoto described a myriad of rising costs of agricultural production— notably shipping, fuel, fertilizer and labor—but said product costs aren’t keeping pace. She added that competition for land is taking three main forms: agriculture vs. development; ag vs ag (meaning higher price export commodities take preference over locally consumed food crops); and food vs. fuel. Kunimoto highlighted the passage of Senate Bill 2646, which provides incentives to denote Important Agriculture Lands (IAL) in Hawai‘i. Landowners would be allowed to designate up to 85 percent of agriculture lands as “important,” with the remaining acreage zoned rural, urban or conservation. But many local environmental groups believe SB 2646 would actually open up thousands of acres of ag lands to development sprawl. The Sierra Club, Hawai‘i’s Thousand Friends, Earthjustice and several others commented in the Honolulu Advertiser that this bill was passed with backroom political gamesmanship of last minute amendments, and that Hawai‘i farmlands could be exposed to unbridled development with minimal public input. “True farmland protection does not come from giving away the farm,” they wrote, “but from genuine leadership, promoting sustainability and food security for Hawai‘i.” Lingle has yet to sign the bill into law. Kauai Councilwoman JoAnn Yukimura, among those who signed the Advertiser commentary, also attended the bioenergy master plan kickoff meeting. “We’ve got to make wise decisions”, Yukimura said, “on how to utilize our

available land and water resources.” She was one of several audience speakers who called for discussions of food crops, not just biofuels. The panel discussion “What Can Grow in Hawaii” presented estimates of yields per acre for ethanol and biodiesel feedstocks, from sugar cane to eucalyptus and bana grass, and from jatropha to microalgae. While algae is often thought to have the greatest potential as a source of oil for biodiesel, most researchers believe commercializing the technologies of production and making the process cost effective

’d been in choppy seas before, but this was something else entirely. Every few seconds I’d feel air beneath the hull of my kayak, or get drenched as a wave crashed over the bow. A light but steady breeze was whipping up considerable swells. The kayak was pretty stable, but I pointed the bow into the waves just to be safe. I could hear the surf smashing into the big rocks behind me, but at the same I wasn’t exactly eager to start paddling for the open sea. So began my first kayaking expedition at night. My friend Travis—who had gone out at night in his kayak many times before—had been talking to me for a few days about how great it was out there at night under a full moon, just relaxing on a glassy black ocean lit only by the running lights of the boat or the bioluminescent algae churned up by the paddle. I thought about it. I loved paddling out by myself in the morning—heading out off shore where you couldn’t hear traffic or other people and just bobbing in the water, watching the sunrise over Haleakala. Heading out at night, under the conditions he described, would be spectacular. But this was different. There was no bioluminescence, no full moon (it was obscured by clouds) and the trip was far from relaxing. I was in water rougher than I’d ever encountered before, with virtually no visibility. The whole world was dark, with just some scattered lights on shore at the hotel just south of the boat ramp. I couldn’t see the big lights at the ramp itself. “What do you think?” Travis yelled. Even though he was just a few yards off my port bow, I could barely hear him. “It’s pretty rough,” I yelled back as a wave crashed over the bow. “This is nothing,” he said. Then he pointed his paddle straight up. “I’ve been out when the waves were this high.” It was a little after 10 p.m. when Travis and I launched into the deceptively calm, sheltered waters surrounding the Kihei Boat Ramp—he in his gigantic blue Queen Mary of kayaks that had a spare paddle, a paddle leash and two cargo holds, and me in my squat, short, yellow job that sported a carabiner for clipping my Locals to some nylon netting. Between us we had glow sticks, waterproof flashlights, hanging lights for wearing around the neck and even a headlamp (see “A Note on Safety” for more on proper precautions for a trip like this). “So you don’t keep the flashlight on all the


time?” I asked just as we began carrying our kayaks down to the water. “No,” he said. “You keep the lights on too long and you risk attracting stuff.” “Stuff?” My imagination began racing. “Yeah. We’ve been out before and gotten bumped by things.” “Things?! Like sharks?” Travis just shrugged his shoulders. If you haven’t already figured it out, Travis is a true adventurer. He’s gone all over the world and experienced all kinds of wonders. Once, at night, he launched out of Makena Landing and paddled all the way to Molokini and back—a total trip of seven miles. He was just about to the islet when he realized his kayak was taking on more water than he should. He made it back to Makena, but apparently just barely. “Paddling out was tough, but paddling back was easy,” he told me. “I mean, if you stop, you die.” I was thinking about that when it came time to paddle back to the boat ramp. We’d only been about for 20 minutes at most, and when I turned around, I noticed the current had carried us south. Suddenly I realized that meant paddling back against the current, with waves crashing into my left side. But paddle we did. The swell buffeted and knocked the kayak about, but didn’t roll her. I was soaked by the time we came around and entered the shelter of the ramp, but also elated. It had been difficult going, but it was also undeniably fun. By now it was nearly 11 p.m., and the moon had broken through the clouds. “If you don’t mind, I’m going back out,” Travis said. And he did. He didn’t get very far. The next morning he told me how he paddled straight out, away from the shore, hoping to find calmer water. It was a forlorn hope. He went out maybe a mile, then turned around and hightailed it back to the boat ramp. “It was rough out there!” he said. MTW

A NOTE ON SAFETY The state Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) requires kayakers to carry life vests for all aboard and running lights when venturing out at night or in times of limited visibility. Anyone venturing out a mile or more off shore must also carry a VHF radio or Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon. It’s also a really good idea to check to see if there are any small craft advisories for your area.

was five years old and sitting cross-legged at my grandparent’s coffee table the first time I saw Jaws. I spent a lot of my childhood in the ocean, but never fell in love with it because I’ve never been able to shake my fear of being devoured by a shark. Somehow, a few weeks ago I found myself onboard Wake Maui’s brand new 23-foot Ski Supreme V232 out in the deep blue off Lahaina with my hubby, a good friend, Captain Ryan Hickey, his friend and fellow instructor Quinn, two hot Canadian girls and a case of Corona. The mission of the day was wakeboarding, a sport and pastime where the rider is towed behind a boat while strapped onto a board that looks a lot like a snowboard. On the mainland, wakeboarding is usually done on a lake, but here we do it in the ocean. The pros of this are the ocean’s vastness, beauty and buoyancy. The downside? It has a tendency to get choppy. While heading out, replaying scenes of bonecrunching, gut-exploding action from 1980’s monster movies in my head, a few things kept me from going into a full-blown panic attack. First off, the vessel was really comfy, with a great sound-system and wraparound lounge seats that felt more “night club” than boat. Secondly, Captain Ryan, United States Coast

Guard-certified, has sun-bleached hair, an awesome physique, golden boy tan and a charming Midwestern smile; having to be resuscitated by him didn’t seem like a bad deal. Regardless, when it came time to actually get off the boat and into the water, I wasn’t feeling very confident, but because my husband goaded me into going first (for which I will never forgive him), I put on a brave face. Quinn set me up on the wakeboard and answered all my silly questions like “What happens when I fall?” (We’ll come and get you) and “Will I sink with this board attached to my feet?” (The board floats… duh). The concept is simple: hold on to the tow strap with both hands and sit in the water with legs extended but slightly bent. Then as the boat picks up speed and the water puts pressure on the board, roll your shoulders forward until you’re in a standing position with your left foot forward. Then just ride. Amazingly, while replaying the instructions in my head as I bobbed around in the water, I didn’t once think about bloodthirsty sea creatures. My competitive nature came out and I wanted to succeed. Plus, I didn’t want to look like a total dork in front of Captain Ryan. The boat started up and began pulling me. I was concerned that I wouldn’t know when it was time to roll my

shoulders and try to stand, but like going into labor or falling in love, it’s one of those moments that you just recognize. Before I knew it, I was standing. I was riding! I was… down. Onboard, my friend said I did great, though I didn’t quite believe him until he told me that when he first began it took him hours to do what little that I just accomplished. Hearing that, I was hooked and attempted the process seven or eight more times. My last ride was my best. I got up and rode for a while—the adrenaline rush is phenomenal—before finally eating it when I went over a little wave and accidentally toed the front of the board into the water. Quinn later told me that I should have balanced my weight more on my back foot. It all happened in an instant. The board caught and

the boat continued to zip in front of me, but like a dummy I didn’t let go fast enough and slammed face first into the water, which, contrary to how it appears, isn’t very soft or fluid. I hadn’t hit my face that hard since I fractured it while riding my horse as a teenager, and it sucked. But at the same time, it felt kind of good. I had taken my first major wakeboarding hang, kind of like a badge of honor. We spent a few more hours on the water. Everyone got a turn and Captain Ryan even busted out the wake surfboard. My buddy and husband dug the surfboard (your feet don’t strap in and it tows close to the boat), and they both enjoyed long rides. I tried the surfboard too, which is a lot easier on the muscles than the wakeboard, but found that I actually preferred the wakeboard’s more intense ride. MTW

or this zipping rookie, there wasn’t much time to think any complete thoughts on the fast, spine-tingling ride down my first zip line in Kapalua. But as the ground beneath me seemed to fall away into a deep, green gulch while I sped downhill toward a sturdy landing platform, two distinct things ran hastily through my mind. The first was: “Over there is where Lanai and Molokai would be if there wasn’t so much damn vog in the air today.” The second thought was a bit more complex: “I hope this little orange helmet will keep my head from splitting open if the line suddenly snaps and I plummet 200 feet down into that field of sharplooking bamboo shoots.” The day I picked to take my first zip line adventure was seriously voggy. From sea level it looked like a gossamer curtain had been haphazardly pulled shut between West Maui and Molokai, but after a bumpy ride up the West Maui mountains through the yellow-green Maui Land &

Pineapple Company fields, the vog laid low overhead and obscured everything past the resort and condo-lined shoreline. I felt like I was inside a big Maui snow globe in the hands of an excited threeyear-old. But then again, I get to see those gorgeous views on a daily basis, so I wasn’t as disappointed with the weather as the tourists in our small group. The nine of us strapped into identical harnesses and helmets for our four-line course along the lower of Kapalua’s eight zip lines. Each one had two parallel lines, so our guides strapped us in side-by-side and we raced to the bottom in pairs. Before we took the plunge off platform on our first line, the guides gave us some basic instruction. “Penciling”—pointing your toes with your legs together and making yourself as aerodynamic as possible—would make you zip faster. The “Starfish Position” slowed you down and involved sticking your arms and legs out like you suddenly got stuck in the middle of a big, aerial jumping jack. Landings

required us to place our hands on the cushioned bar above our heads and kept our legs together and bent so the guys catching us at the bottom didn’t get a face full of tennis shoe. Naturally, there was no instruction on how to convince your legs that it was a good idea to jump off a second-story platform over a hard, rocky surface. I eventually figured it out, and the short first ride was over with a gentle thud as my zip lining gear connected with the spring-loaded brake system and I came to a swinging halt.

The Starfish position

“What the hell was I thinkin’?”

The lines got bigger and faster, but easier and more relaxing with each initial leap. By the end I was even asking for pushes from the guides to make me zip as fast as I could. The lack of trade winds meant that the rides were slower, which left me more time to contemplate my impending doom and falling to an adventurous death while wearing a ridiculous looking helmet and a big, excited smile. The danger was truly minimal. Zip lining is really one of those controlled risks

that are actually very safe in the grand scheme of things. I mean, the oldest guy in our group had 10 years on my grandfather and the guides said that the day before, more than 50 sixth graders made their way across the same course I had done. The fun comes from riding longer lines, like the 1,800-foot line I rode (which isn’t even the longest line of the course) and the beautiful views of water and mountains that you just can’t get from the ground. If sixth graders can enjoy that, then so can I. MTW

High Tea in Paniolo Town Even adventurers need to take a break I’ve long been a fan of teatime. This is probably because I’m a full-blown procrastinator and love activities that let me dawdle. Teatime, whether at home or on the road, is an excuse to just sit back, relax and enjoy the moment. While I’ll steep leaves just about anywhere, it’s always a special treat to have tea with friends and family at the Makawao Steak House’s tearoom. The tearoom is behind the actual restaurant in the courtyard, across from Viewpoints Gallery. The ambiance is similar to the steakhouse, with cozy dark wood paneling but markedly more feminine. The room is filled with antique teapots and china in old-fashioned hutches, stuffed bears and seven tables dressed with lace tablecloths. After sitting down, a hostess pres-

salmon sandwiches are perfectly light and tasty as well. I don’t know what it is about finger food, but they’re so easy to eat and are the perfect snack to accompany great conversation. Finally, after sipping more tea and thinking that there’s no better way to spend an afternoon in Makawao, you see the dessert tray with Russian tea cookies (the ones filled with nuts and then rolled in powdered sugar), cream puffs, lemon bars and chocolate chunk cookie bars. After dessert is a good time to browse around the tearoom and read through the journal kept by people from around the world who have enjoyed teatime at the Makawao Steak House before you. Don’t forget to leave a message of your own and then hit the town for the greatest adventure of all-treasure hunting at all the great Upcountry boutiques. MTW

The Mana`o Radio Orchestra’s going to kick off a great music lineup that includes the Planetary Bandits, the Haiku Hillbillys and—the big finish—mellow Hawaiian-meets-funk group Gomega. It’s the beginning of a whole new era for Charley’s, which thankfully means more great live music and good times for the rest of us. $15. [JESSICA ARMSTRONG]

Sex and the City

Thursday-Sunday, various times and locations across Maui County

Friday, May 30, from 6-9 p.m. at Josephine’s in Paia

[EVENT] This past weekend I attended my cousin’s graduation ceremony at Seabury Hall. As usual, it was beautiful. Because the graduating class is usually a manageable size, all of the students get a chance to speak. As I listened to the various things they had to say (all of which were very optimistic) I couldn’t help but think that life hadn’t pooped on these people yet. The majority of those graduating from a public school this weekend won’t have a chance to tell the crowd how much they care or how they look forward to their big bright future, but then again, 10 years down the road they won’t have to cringe at the memory of publicly showing how naïve they were as teenagers. Thursday, 6 p.m. King Kekaulike (at the school); Friday 6 p.m. Baldwin (War Memorial); Saturday 2 p.m. Lanai High (Pedro Dela Cruz Field), 3:30 Hana High, 4 p.m. Molokai High, 4:30 p.m. Kihei Charter School (Wailea Marriott), 5 p.m. Maui High (War Memorial); Sunday 6 p.m. Ka`ahumanu Hou (King’s Cathedral), 6:30 p.m. Lahainaluna (athletic field).

[EVENT] Listen up Carrie Bradshaw fans, because what I am about to tell you is way more exciting than the release of a mere movie. Josephine’s–a high-end lingerie boutique in Paia–is having an official Sex and the City party! Cosabella, who designs gorgeous bras, panties and camisoles, has created an exclusive Sex and the City lingerie collection (the characters even wear them in the film) fashioned after each of the four main characters. Each line has a different look and feel that compliments the character. Ocean Vodka is sponsoring the event and there will be perks like a free thong with purchase. No to mention, I heard that Josephine’s is the only shop on the island that will carry the collection. So there’s no question that you should be there, but the real questions is, are you a Carrie, Samantha, Miranda or Charlotte? And naturally, what will you wear? For more information, 579-6229.

Beyond the Grass Skirt Friday, May 30, music starts at 7 p.m., film 7:30 at the Lahaina Jodo Mission [FILM] I am very excited about Beyond the Grass Skirt, an independent documentary shot here on Maui that takes a behind the scenes look into the minds and lives of four young locals who are part of the Old Lahaina Luau. Personally, I find the concept fascinating whether you are a tourist or a local. I was taken by each of the performers when I heard them talking about their work at the luau and how they believe that they are upholding and preserving the Hawaiian culture. It’s a different view than what I imagined and I’m dying to learn more. Free. To view the trailer,


Reggae with Spirit Saturday, May 31, 4-10 p.m., Lahaina Civic Center [MUSCI] Groundation likes to call their music “spiritual roots reggae,” which I think is fine but doesn’t really capture the versatility of this internationally renowned reggae group. Their sound is kind of Jamaican meets jazz, which is a unique combo. I think it must be the heavy horn section of the band that makes their music so dramatically different from Hawaiian reggae. But don’t worry if you’re a huge fan of that chill, Jawaiian vibe because this all ages concert will also feature Oahu band Ooklah the Moc, Versatile, the Alliez and DJ Boomshot, so there will be a very diverse mix of tunes. Beer garden for the 21+ crowd and after party with Versatile and Innavision at Hard Rock Café, Lahaina. Tickets: $25 in advance, $35 at the door. For ticketing locations visit After party at Hard Rock. [JA]

More Sex? Yes, please! Confession time: I was a fan of Sex and the City. While not someone who saw every single episode, I managed to forgive the show for a tacky first season and found myself caught up in the lives of writer Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), prim and proper Charlotte (the adorable Kristin Davis), no-nonsense Miranda (Cynthia Nixon, the show’s dramatic anchor) and socialite nymphomaniac Samantha (80’s mega-babe Kim Cattrall). Those who felt the New York show was an empty, trendy celebration of

Members of Groundation!

Well, how much for just his lower half? materialism and carefree romance won’t have their minds changed after seeing the movie. Yet, like the series, the big laughs, sunny characters and surprisingly moving story revelations make this a rich diversion. The Rocky-like opening credits montage will fill in the uninitiated and the film is funny and certainly raunchy enough for guys.

Sex and the City

★★★★★ Rated R/145 min.

The story deals with an ill-fated wedding that has the ladies pulling together, Carrie hiring a much-needed assistant (Jennifer Hudson, a nice addition) and the four dealing with the need to forgive those who’ve wronged them. Parker goes for broke, nakedly portraying her character’s emotional highs and lows, Davis has the

biggest comic moments, Nixon the most dramatically demanding ones and Cattrall steals the film (and has a jewel of a moment where she spoon-feeds a friend numb with depression). This naughty, campy big screen expansion is great fun, though is probably much longer than necessary. It feels like you’re watching three very-good episodes back-to-back. The designer outfits and costumes are so over the top and wildly colorful, I felt at times like I was watching Speed Racer again. The fast-paced first hour plays like a commercial, with the clothing changes, trying-on-outfits montages, product placements and famous name-drops flying at you nearly non-stop. The film is definitely the Big Event that long time fans of the series have hoped for. During a scene where Carrie observes her a huge clothing closet, the mostly female audience in the theater oohed and awed as though they were seeing the most amazing special effect of all time. Possibly too vulgar to be a date movie (there’s even a toilet gag), the film still has plenty of laughs and heart in equal measure. MTW

Look harder. Your seeming lack of options isn’t really because you’re wedged between a rock and a hard place. It’s actually about your lack of creativity. You haven’t been especially resourceful or imaginative when it comes to evaluating your situation. You saw a rock, you saw a hard place, and you concluded, “Well, that’s it. Damn, I’m stuck!” I will grant you that your situation is less than ideal, but it’s hardly inescapable. It’s just that gracefully extricating yourself from it will require more ingenuity than you’ve demonstrated so far. You’re a master of duality. Try to look at things from more than one perspective at once. At that point your route of egress will be obvious.


Let’s pretend you’re planning a vacation. You have your heart set on Fiji, but the person you’re going with is gung ho about Alaska. Now, there’s no need to talk yourself into anything you won’t be happy with. However, there’s a huge difference between convincing yourself of something and simply being open to it. Stop pretending to listen and really listen. This decision is about a lot more than whether you’d rather lay on the beach or go look at grizzly bears. Open up, damn it. Truly consider all the options. If you can’t, your vacation (or whatever it is you’re deciding) is going to suck, no matter where you end up.

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22)

Your ego is a dangerous thing. It gets you into all kinds of trouble. Someone charming knows how to stroke it and suddenly you’re swept up in a moment that’s actually about your pleasure, instead of real mutual respect or attraction. You need to be a hard-nosed realist right now, and not go somewhere that’s going to get someone hurt, just because it feels good right now. This doesn’t have to be an all-or-nothing scenario, but finding the happy middle ground will take a truly logical, almost business-like perspective. Figure out what you actually want, and make sure this is it before you travel further down the path. If it’s not, correct course now, before it’s too late.

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22)

This is all about prevention. A small action now could save you from a heap of angst later. Kill a mosquito in springtime, and you’ve essentially killed thousands or millions of her descendants in one go. Just a small slap, and your summer has a hundred less mosquito bites. There is a bit of moral relativism here, and only you can decide where you draw the line. Is it okay to kill one mosquito in order to limit future aggravation from its offspring? How about kicking someone off the team because you know they’ll do more harm than good? It’s up to you to decide how much you’re willing to do to prevent outcomes you don’t want, but decide quickly, please. If you decide to act, the time to do so is this week, when you’ll get the most benefit from the least action.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22)

You can waste time with the best of them, you know that? You’re a champion idler. I’m not talking about just whiling away an afternoon here. I’m referring to your phenomenal ability to allow whole years of your life to pass without significantly moving forward on any of the things that are most important to you—in theory, at least. I can’t help thinking that if they were actually important, you’d actually do something about them. Tell you what. Prove me wrong, if I am. Use this week to make a move. Don’t waste a second. You’ll need every one.


You may not enjoy it when someone pins you down and makes you squirm, but sometimes it’s the only way to get a straight answer out of you, or to get you to make a decision and then stick to it. While it might feel better to be simply left to your own devices, can you recognize that those who are intent on pushing you in this way are mostly doing it to make you happier and ultimately improve your life? Even if they’re the ones that make you the most uncomfortable, it may turn out that they’re also the ones who love you the most. Try to see that, and be grateful, not resentful, when you’re better for it.


Take pride in what you’ve accomplished but don’t slow down for accolades. You’re just getting started. The only real obstacle between you and your most ambitious short-term goals is your own ego. Stop to enjoy the fruits of your labors and soak up some recognition, and you’re liable to lose precious momentum, and never get to where you’re going. Save all that stuff for later. Yes, that means that you may never get to enjoy these particular rounds of applause, but if you get to where you’re going (and this is the only way you will), there’ll probably be plenty more.


You don’t like being wrong. Who does? But you especially hate it when you’re caught in a mistake, and you’ll usually wriggle and squirm and try to get out of it. On some occasions you’ve even managed to get the blame pinned on someone else. In your book, that’s simply making the best of a bad situation. In my book, it’s understandable but it’s also going to get you into even more trouble. ‘Fess up. Own what you’ve said and done. However painful and embarrassing that might be for you, please trust me—the alternative would be much, much worse.


You’re fine with bending the rules. In your world, they’re just loose guidelines, not meant for someone with vision and imagination. What you’re less okay with, of course, is getting caught. Sometimes you’re so slick that this is hardly a concern; other times you’re not quite as good at covering your tracks and making sure you get away with your little shenanigans. That might be the case this week. Have you gotten sloppy? If so, why? There could very well be a part of you that’s done with this kind of mischief. Is it possible you want to get caught? If not, I’d either clean up your act or get better at covering your tracks, now.


There are rats nesting in your couch. Yes, just inches beneath your ass is a little den full of sleeping vermin. What’ll you do now that you know? Certainly continuing to watch television isn’t exactly an option. Chances are you’d destroy the couch and do your best to ensure nothing like this ever happened again. The good news is that there aren’t literally rodents in your furniture. The bad news is that a rat of some kind has burrowed its way into your life and is now nestled as close to you as your couch cushion. Expose it and get rid of it, pronto.

“Editorial Internships” MauiTime Weekly 33 N. Market St., Ste. 201 Wailuku, HI 96793 or email to:


Although you’re certainly capable of being incredibly romantic, sometimes you Rams can become a bit too hard-nosed for true romance. I find that tragic. Because in the past you’ve been embarrassed when your sappy gestures were sneered at by some thick-skinned cynic, you’re reluctant to go there again. But go there you should; think of all the other times when your sweet sentimentality was well-received, and how good it made people feel. It’s time to go out on a limb again. Be a sweet, romantic sap. It’s dorky, yes. It’s also one of your most endearing qualities.


It’s hard for you to separate your personal feelings from the situation. It’s not that you’re incapable of seeing things clearly, it’s that you like that your emotions cloud your judgment. You’re quite simply unwilling to make the effort to remove yourself and observe things dispassionately. You’re probably aware that this will get you into more trouble than not, but you probably also don’t care. Fine. You’re allowed to look at things however you please. Just one thing: some people are making assumptions about your input. They probably believe it’s founded in logic, not emotion. In the interest of full disclosure, make sure they’re clued in to where you’re actually coming from.

Some of my worst childhood memories stem from Summer Fun. Don’t get your panties in a bunch; this is not a rant against parents who send their kids off to do organized activities with other children. I’m simply stating a fact: I hated Summer Fun. And so did my little brother. I’m pretty sure the reason is that my brother and I were really sheltered as little kids. We went to a small private school, weren’t allowed to play in the street with other kids, couldn’t stay up past 7 p.m., were reprimanded for talking pidgin, didn’t swear, had no clue what “oofing” meant and never, ever, had hanabuddah noses (at least while Mom was in wiping distance with a tissue). Therefore, being thrown into a public summer program full of kids that not only knew each other, but also several creative swear words and tons of horror stories (I’m still creeped out by Bloody Mary), felt like having a church picnic at Halawa. Yes, my brother and I are panties. Our Summer Fun experience didn’t last long. We cried and hung on to Mom’s apron strings and she let us stay home with her for the rest of our vacation. But my kids aren’t going to have the liberty of staying home this summer, tears or not, because Mom’s gotta work. And this bothers me. My son loves his daycare provider. In fact, I think he’ll be crushed when it comes time to break it to him that she’s not a blood relation. But then again, she spends more time raising him than I and with all of the solid Hawaiian values she instills in him he will understand (more than I do) that hanai is family, too. But, as a mom, I worry that when he’s grown he’ll resent the fact that Mommy wasn’t there to put him down for a nap, make his lunch and clean his boo-boos. My daughter gets out of school this week and she’ll be spending the bulk of summer vacation with my mom. Not that she’s complaining—my mom’s house is like Disneyland to her—but still… I feel like I’m screwing my kids over. We all know that here in Hawai‘i, families have to work together to make it. It’s a different time, with more financial burdens than the days when I was growing up and my mom stayed home with us. I need an income. But lately, I’ve been asking myself, “at what expense?” The other day my daughter said, “Can you pick me up from school? Grandmas and grandpas aren’t supposed to.” I didn’t point out that she’s wrong. I wanted to tell her that lots of grandmas and grandpas pick up kids from school because their moms and dads are working, but it wouldn’t have mattered because in her eyes, they don’t. The majority of her classmates are picked up by their parents. How they manage this, I have no idea. On the other hand, I wonder if staying home with the peeps would even be in their best interest. I’m not a patient person and don’t think that I’m up for a Mom-of-the-Year award anytime soon. In fact, sometimes I’m so overwhelmed and tired after a day in the office that I’m downright mean. Which makes me feel crappy and my kids sad. I guess it comes down to raising children who feel secure and loved while instilling in them the importance of sacrificing things for the greater good of the family. If someone’s figured out how to do this, please let me know.
