[ Coconut Wireless ] HYPA LOCAL The comedy of errors that is the Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge boardwalk continues. The boardwalk, which has been hit with a cascading series of delays and snafus since it was first constructed more than a half-decade ago, sits idle, adorned with a large “closed” sign (and a few bits of graffiti). In May, officials said the end was in sight— and they’re still saying that, even as the gates remain locked. On August 1, The Maui News reported that the culprit was a missing “no left turn” sign. On August 4, I spoke with wildlife biologist Mike Nishimoto, who said he believes the problem now is that “the [sign] material is not thick enough” to hold up in the wind, meaning new signs will have to be installed. We’ve hammered this project on multiple occasions, but to be clear: we want to see the thing opened. We’re rooting for success. Whether we’re optimistic is another matter… Nearly a year after a group of Native Hawaiian sovereignty advocates broke into the Iolani Palace on Oahu, their leader, Mauian James Akahi, was slapped with a $1,000 fine for trespassing. A Circuit Court judge dropped a felony burglary charge that could have led to jail time, but told Akahi, who claims to be the rightful monarch of the Kingdom of Hawaii, that his plan of action “couldn’t have been more wrong,” according to the Honolulu Advertiser. That may be true, especially on a practical level (reports at the time indicated the plot failed in part because the would-be king couldn’t find his throne), but as Hawaii celebrates 50 years of statehood, the sovereignty debate is certainly a pertinent one…

LOCAL The election is still more than a year away, but Hawaii’s gubernatorial candidates are in full-on cash-acquisition mode. Campaign contribution and expenditure reports filed last week revealed robust totals for the three leading contenders, made even more impressive (if that’s the right word) by the stormy economic climate. Between January 1 and June 30, dueling Democrats Rep. Neil Abercrombie ($486,272) and Honolulu Mayor Mufi Hanneman ($583,019) outpaced Republican Lt. Gov. Duke Aiona ($308,753). Don’t worry about Duke, though—he’s got $800,000-plus in his war chest, more than twice as much as

Abercrombie (though that doesn’t count the dough left in Neil’s congressional coffers). Hanneman, meanwhile, leads the pack with almost $1.17 million. While each candidate naturally wants to spin his fundraising efforts as grassroots, all took money from corporate heavy hitters: Abercrombie got the maximum $6,000 from Royal Hawaiian Cruises, $2,000 from Alexander & Baldwin and $1,000 from defense contractor General Dynamics Corps.; Aiona received $1,000 and $700 from the presidents of Castle & Cooke and shipping company The Pasha Group, respectively; Hanneman, who received the max contribution from dozens of individual donors, reeled in $4,000 from Castle & Cooke and another $1,000 from Central Pacific Bank. (To scour the reports yourself, go to… While others wrangle for the right to take her crown, on July 30 Gov. Lingle delivered her weekly radio address (all the obsolescence of Roosevelt’s fireside chats, none of the candor or eloquence). Here’s a snippet: “We know the economic downturn is causing a strain on families and businesses, and we’re doing our best every day to change that downward trend. Despite unprecedented budget restrictions, my cabinet directors are working with their dedicated employees to find common-sense solutions to the real challenges facing our state.” We’ve dedicated a regular column (Spin Cycle, pg. 9) to parsing PR doublespeak, but this one had too much euphemistic goodness to be contained there. How many instances of clichéd circumlocution can you spot? (I count at least six.)… Remember back in March when Saturday Night Live did that sketch about the two disgruntled locals making fun of tourists at a resort bar on Kauai? And how state officials— including Lt. Gov. Aiona—were all up in arms about it, with Hawaii Tourism Authority board chair Kelvin Bloom calling it “insulting” and “distasteful” in a Honolulu Advertiser article? Well if they hated that, they must really be pissed about the new thriller A Perfect Getaway, which depicts a group of honeymooning hikers being terrorized by a psychotic killer on the Na Pali coast. Take it away HTA chief executive Mike McCartney, quoted in a KHON report: “It’s a movie…it’s not reality and I think the visitors and movie goers understand the difference between fiction and reality.” Oh. Never mind…

They all have the same favorite color. ongoing Obama citizenship (non)-controversy: an alleged (and by “alleged” I mean “fake”) Kenyan birth certificate showing the President was indeed born on African soil. The document has been ripped to shreds (metaphorically speaking) by experts who have pointed out its many flaws and inconsistencies (even Karl Rove, via Twitter, said the thing “is likely a forgery”). But of course that hasn’t stopped the birthers and their Queen crazy—some too-nuts-to-be real chick named Orly Taitz—from shouting their conspiracy nonsense to any cable news show that will listen (which is pretty much all of them). Then again, lest you dismiss this as a fringe movement, keep in mind: a recent Daily Kos poll showed 58 percent of Republicans either don’t believe Obama is a U.S. citizen or aren’t sure. OK, so the source is slanted left, but

even if the numbers are only half that, it’s still disturbing… If you doubt that we are a nation of drug addicts or that the pharmaceutical companies are the biggest pushers on the planet, turn your attention to a recent report published in the Archives of General Psychiatry, which found that between 1996 and 2005, the number of Americans using antidepressants rose from 7 million to 13 million. Not coincidentally, in 2005 the makers of antidepressants spent more than $1 billion on advertising, according to a Reuters report. Are you reaching for your Paxil yet?

Asleep at the wheel New report reveals disturbing details about go! flight 1002 here are a few things a commercial airline pilot simply cannot do. Falling asleep at the wheel is one of them. But that’s exactly what happened on the morning of February 13, 2008, as go! flight 1002 made its way from Honolulu to Hilo. And not only did the pilot fall asleep— his copilot did, too. For an undetermined period of time, the plane was flying on autopilot, thousands of feet in the air and full of unwitting passengers, with no one to take control. Details of the incident are recounted in a recently released report from the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). The report spells out what could have been a harrowing moment in Hawaii aviation history, a near-disaster that was averted seemingly as much by luck as anything else. Flight 1002 left Honolulu International Airport at approximately 9:16am. At around 9:30am, Captain Scott Oltman communicated via radio that the flight was ascending to its cruising altitude of 21,000 feet. A controller


cleared the flight to continue toward its destination and received confirmation. At 9:33am, the controller repeated the clearance and again the flight crew confirmed. Seven minutes later, at 9:40am, the controller sent a transmission telling the flight crew to change radio frequencies. There was

with the crew, but the plane continued past the airport, still heading southeast. At 9:58am, 18 minutes had elapsed since the crew last made radio contact and flight 1002 had overshot its destination by 26 nautical miles. Then, finally, Captain Oltman sent a call sign. A controller asked

At 9:58am, 18 minutes had elapsed since the crew last made radio contact and flight 1002 had overshot its destination by 26 nautical miles. no reply. According to the NTSB report— obtained via the Aero-News Network—“the controller continued to try to contact the flight crew multiple times” without success. At 9:51am, flight 1002 turned southeast toward the Hilo airport but didn’t descend, which the NTSB report says is “consistent with the airplane being on autopilot.” Multiple controllers tried to make contact

if there was an emergency, to which the captain responded, according to the NTSB report, “No, we must have missed a hand off or missed a call or something.” Seventeen minutes later, the plane landed safely in Hilo. Captain Oltman and First Officer Dillon Shepley admitted to falling asleep en route. Both were subsequently fired by the airline and had their

licenses suspended by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The FAA didn’t take action against go! or its parent company, Arizona-based Mesa Air Group, according to a September 2008 Honolulu Advertiser report. The NTSB report attributes the incident to fatigue—both pilots had started work at 5:40am for three straight days. It goes on to state that the “captain had undiagnosed severe obstructive sleep apnea, which was diagnosed during a medical evaluation shortly after this incident and for which symptoms (such as snoring) and risk factors (such as obesity) were present before the incident.” It’s unclear whether go! and Mesa have taken steps to ensure pilots are tested for sleep apnea and not placed on schedules that could lead to fatigue. (Calls to Mesa were not returned at press time.) What is clear is that avoidable, negligent incidents like this should never occur. MTW

Corazon Aquino (1933-2009) Recounting the revolutionary life of the Philippines’ first female president orazon Aquino, the former President of the Republic of the Philippines who led a peaceful urban revolution that ousted U.S.-backed dictator Ferdinand Marcos, died on August 1 at Makati Medical Center in Manila. Aquino was born into a wealthy family in Tarlac province, Philippines. After grade school, she went to the United States for college. She later married Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino, Jr., who became a senator and leading critic of President Marcos’s government. In 1972, a year before he was term-limited out of office, President Marcos declared martial law and abolished the national constitution; Aquino’s husband was arrested and sentenced to death. President Jimmy Carter reversed previous Republican policy on Marcos and refused to give the regime money unless democracy was restored. Marcos agreed to hold elections. In 1978, Aquino campaigned on her imprisoned husband’s behalf for the interim national assembly elections, which suf-


fered widespread fraud. In 1980, Marcos exiled Aquino and her family to the U.S. Aquino’s husband returned to the Philippines in 1983 and was summarily executed as he exited the airplane in Manila. Protests against the Marcos regime unified around the image of Aquino and her loss.

In Hawaii, where Marcos remains popular among his fellow Ilocanos, Aquino’s legacy is mixed. In November, 1985, Marcos announced a snap presidential election to be held the following year. A petition with a million signatures appeared within a week urging Aquino to run. She agreed. On February 7, 1986, an election was held. The Marcoscontrolled Commission on Elections declared Marcos the winner while the independent National Movement for Free Elections indicated Aquino was victorious. The national assembly installed

Fidel Ramos called on Marcos to resign and took over two military bases in Metro Manila. Manila Cardinal Jaime Sin, a confidant of Aquino, used Catholic Veritas radio to encourage people to go to the bases to protect them from Marcos; the crowds eventually swelled to several million. When it became clear Marcos would only survive the protests with massive civilian casualties, Marcos, his family and close allies were taken to Clark Air Force

Base and eventually exiled to Hawaii. Once in office, Aquino was confronted with a powerful right-wing military, a fullscale left-wing civil war and a systemic system of corruption. The military attempted seven coups against Aquino and forced her to spend most of her time in office stabilizing the political process. She retired at the end of her term. In 2001, Aquino participated in the protests that successfully ousted President Joseph Estrada and installed current President Gloria MacapagalArroyo. When charges of corruption were leveled against Macapagal-Arroyo, Aquino called for her resignation as well. Aquino has been hailed internationally as a symbol of the peaceful democratic revolutionary process that was subsequently followed in Eastern Europe and Asia. In Hawaii, however, where Marcos remains popular among his fellow Ilocanos, Aquino’s legacy is mixed and the remembrance of her death subdued. MTW

The beauty of East Maui stirs introspection louds shrouded the Alenuihaha Channel between Hana and the Big Island as squalls blew across the choppy ocean waters. Looking down over steeply sloping pastures, we watched the advancing showers race toward the shoreline below, where surging waves from Tropical Storm Lana, far to the south, crashed audibly against the lava rocks, sending cascades of whitewater into coastal tide pools. We had no agenda for our two days in Hana, and no expectations of rain or shine. We were ready to soak in either—or, as it turned out, both. Heather and I left Haiku on Friday afternoon, and encountered little traffic. With more curves than a beauty pageant competition, the Hana Highway is also a bit of a misnomer: to the thousands of rental cars that traverse the scenic, sometimes treacherous road every year, there is little that resembles the fast-moving turnpikes of the Mainland. Being “on assignment” meant that we took our sweet time, stopping at many of the roadside fruit stands along the way. Smiling Aina, working inside the refurbished school bus at the bustling Twin Falls fruit and smoothie stand, was more than happy to pose for a picture. A bit further, the Huelo Point stop offered a luscious array of fruit, while their hand-lettered sign also advertised crepes. Each roadside stand has unique elements to attract travelers. Colorful signs beckon with sumptuous offerings, ranging from passion fruit to banana bread to smoked BBQ. My favorite sign: “Honk if you’re hungry.”


am continually amazed by Hana’s botanical lushness, cultural richness, sparkling beaches and unwavering sense of place. Geographic isolation and high real estate prices are two obvious reasons why the region has changed little over the years. Cottages now dot the bluff below the ballpark, an adjunct of the Hotel Hana, and a few more luxury homes are tucked into the hillsides. But a golf course proposed years ago never passed the community’s muster, and even ownership changes at the ranch and hotel don’t bring wholesale alterations. On this Saturday morning, many donned aloha attire to bid farewell to

one of Hana’s matriarch’s, Gertrude Boerner, who passed away a month short of her 99th birthday. Her son, Chuck, has helped spread Hana’s tropical bounty throughout Maui and beyond; his Ono Organic Farms now sets up a daily stand at the parking lot where the original Hasegawa General Store stood before it burned down in 1990. Heather and I headed away from town, driving through alternating drizzle and sunshine toward Kipahulu. We huddled under the Ho‘onanea Farm stand, trying to stay dry while Julie cheerfully made us a veggie taco. We bought a ripe egg fruit, and upon tasting it later, wished we’d bought the entire box. After passing the Haleakala National Park Center, we were met by a smiling local family on horseback who offered up shakas as we inched by them. We visited the Laulima Farm stand, set amidst a colorful patchwork of terraced gardens. Inside, a stationary bike is hooked up to a blender so customers can generate enough electricity to mix their own smoothies. In the corner stood an enormous jackfruit, nearly as tall as the four-legged stool beside it. “Yeah,” said the counter girl, recognizing my astonishment, “that one weighs more than 50 pounds.” he lush jungle suddenly gave way to the bare cliff-side, where repairs from the October 2006 earthquake required a protracted road closure. Now, the wire draping on the pali resembles a giant hukilau net, as if a Hawaiian demigod hung it there to dry. We parked under a hala tree near Alelele bridge, where the stream waters trickle over smooth river rocks and into the crashing waves. Pausing to honor the sacredness of the place, we wrapped small stones in ti leaves and murmured our thanks to the ancestors of this land. A nearly hidden path brought us to the foot of Alelele Falls, water cascading 70 feet down into the pool before us. With little warning, clouds covered the sun. Winds swept into the valley, bringing sheets of rain and sending us scampering to the lee side of the valley wall and into a small grotto overhang. In minutes, the weather cleared again. We traipsed out, pausing to pick a couple maunaloa flowers, a sweet pea prized by lei-makers. Heather hung one pink flower on each of her gold hoop earrings, a delicate reminder of our adventure-filled hike. Dinner at Karen Davidson’s home above Mu‘olea Point featured a fabulous



LC Watch The second thing is over-serving, or serving to someone who’s already drunk. That’s a lot more subjective. Sure, blood alcohol level is scientific (though not foolproof), but unless you’re going to give every customer a breath test, it falls to judgment, experience and instinct—three things that are tough to apply consistently.

Thank God for Hana. baked pumpkin from the Hana Fresh garden stand in front of the Hana Health Center. Satiated, we retired to bed in her art studio. Colorful paper sculptures of florals, landscapes and abstracts adorned the walls above, eliciting wildly imaginative dreams while squalls beat intermittent rhythms on the roof. Sunday morning featured a whim of a recipe conceived the night before: pumpkin pancakes with fresh mangoes! As we ate, Karen asked, “Doesn’t it seem as though the recession is starting to ease up?” “Not really,” I answered, unable to conjure any clear indications of a positive upturn. Of the many roadside signs we observed the previous day, one in particular caught my eye. On a sharp turn between Hana and Kipahulu, a yellow reflector was affixed to a large mango tree. In the center of the reflector, a bumper sticker in black gothic letters offered a one-word mantra: “Change.” Change needn’t be scary or imposing. There is a homeostasis in the unfolding magic; in Hana, the molecules of change are imbued within the ginger blossoms, moist breezes, smiles of strangers and even the lava rocks. And in Heavenly Hana, as sublime and colorful as a ripe mango, change is good. MTW

The only new case listed on the docket for this month’s Adjudication Board meeting is a charge of serving to an intoxicated individual (details next week), so now seems like a good time to parse the issue. The Rules of the Liquor Commission say a person is “under the influence of liquor” when they have “consumed intoxicating liquor sufficient to impair at the...time under inquiry the person’s normal mental faculties or ability to care for oneself and guard against casualty, or sufficient to substantially impair...that clearness of intellect and control of oneself which the person would otherwise normally possess.” That’s a mouthful, but it’s also almost uselessly opaque. What concrete signs can servers look for to determine if someone’s had one (or four) too many? For an answer, let’s head to the Mainland. On its Web site (, the Nebraska LC provides a list of “50 possible signs of visual intoxication.” A few of the better (read: funnier) ones include: “overly animated or entertaining”; “drinking alone”; “mussed hair”; “lighting more than one cigarette at a time”; and (this one is probably a slam-dunk) “can’t find mouth with glass.”

[ News of the Weird ] CONSOLATION PRIZE: PURGATORY Apparently believing that religious competition in the Middle East is not exciting enough already, the television station Kanal T in Istanbul, Turkey, is preparing a reality game show for September release in which 10 certified atheists try to resist conversion by a priest, a rabbi, a Muslim imam and a Buddhist monk. The exact rules have not been disclosed, but the “winning” convert will receive an expense-paid trip to the holy land of the most persuasive religion (the Vatican, Jerusalem, Mecca or Tibet). According to a July Reuters report, Turkey’s Islamic Religious Affairs Directorate, not surprisingly, has vowed never to cooperate.

IT TAKES ALL KINDS The New Age movement might be growing too inclusive, according to a July report in the St. Paul Pioneer Press (published in a city where the concept of “New Age” is already highly nuanced). “[P]agans feel jilted,” wrote the reporter. “Chiropractors want out [of consideration],” “channelers wonder if they belong,” and “organic farmers don’t want to be near pet psychics.” Said one St. Paul merchant, “I have customers who completely believe in fairies and will laugh at you if you believe in Bigfoot.” But, said one New Age magazine editor, the movement should “encompass anything on a spiritual path— Bigfoot, Jesus, Buddha. Even worshipping a frog is sort of OK.”

LOOK OUT, PIRATES! PEE BACK SOON By early July, Jonathan Baltesz and his wife and kids were desperate to find their 10-year-old black Labrador mix, Simon, who had run away. They had one more plan, however. The family members urinated into containers and sprinkled the contents at various locales around their town (Bristol, England), laid out so that Simon could follow a trail home. (Results were unavailable at press time.)

Farah Ahmed Omar was appointed recently as chief of Somalia’s navy, which ordinarily would be on the front lines against the throng of pirates operating off the country’s coast. Omar’s job is difficult, though, because the Somalian navy has not a single boat nor a single sailor, and Omar himself has not been to sea in 23 years. However, he told a reporter he was optimistic that the piracy could be stopped.

INOMPETENT CRIMINALS HEAVY LIFTING In June, the British charter airline Thomas Cook announced at the gate on the resort island of Mallorca that, regardless of seat assignments on a departing flight, passengers should sit toward the rear of the aircraft in order to balance the load (since it was already front-heavy with cargo and therefore harder on the pilot). Not surprisingly, 71 apprehensive passengers refused to board. (Also, some incoming passengers on that same aircraft, which experienced a similar balance problem, had dramatically dropped to their knees in the terminal, kissing the ground, calling the flight their worst ever.)

(1) A Polynesian man in his 20s was being sought as the robber of the Black Diamond Equipment store in Salt Lake City in June. He made off with some gear from the ski and climbing accessory store, but had originally demanded jewelry, as he apparently thought he was knocking off a “diamond” store. (2) Motorist Zackary Johnson was arrested in Athens, Ga., in June after pulling over a passing police car to inquire whether he had any warrants outstanding against him. No, answered the officer after a computer check, but he noted that Johnson’s driver’s license is under suspension, and he was arrested. MTW For an expanded News of the Weird, visit

[ Editor’s Inbox ] A&B RESPONDS Alexander & Baldwin has voluntarily designated nearly 27,000 acres of lands on Maui and 3,770 acres on Kauai as Important Agricultural Lands, dedicating them to agricultural use. The July 23 Rob Report gives readers the impression that, related to this designation, A&B would be seeking “fast track reclassification” incentives for certain parcels on Maui. For the record, A&B specifically waived our rights to utilize the 85 percent/15 percent reclassification incentive— now or in the future—for lands designated IAL both on Maui and on Kauai. We are in the process of assessing what agricultural incentives we may seek for our two active agricultural operations that could benefit— Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar (HC&S) on Maui and Kauai Coffee Company on Kauai. Despite some effort to cast doubts about our actions, we believe this dedication of land is a significant positive outcome for Maui, and hope your readers agree. Christopher Benjamin, HC&S General Manager and A&B Chief Financial Officer

Re the feature on Ole Olsen [“Giving Shape,” July 23]: There are few people you come across in life that inspire you. Ole was that for on Maui in the late ’70s when I worked for him in the old cannery across from Mala wharf. One week when a bunch of boards were going through the shop and it was just buzzin’, I remember him turning to me and saying, “Isn’t this great, we’re building boards!” That’s what its always been for him—just stoked to be building beautiful boards. Thanks for the memories.

Ed. Note: This is the first in a series of pieces that will examine the visitor industry and the future of the island’s economy. aui tourism is down—way down. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you already know that. For the first quarter, visitor arrivals declined more than 22 percent from last year, which was also down from the year before. Over the last two years, we’ve lost almost 30 percent of our visitors. Ouch. The fundamental economic engine of this island is the money those tourists spend. Although only about 30 percent of our economy is part of that industry, they bring in well over 90 percent of our outside revenue. When the visitor industry suffers, we all (eventually) suffer. One of the problems with tourism is that it’s a luxury for our customers. As such, it waxes and wanes with the disposable income of our visitor base, leaving us at the mercy of macro-economic swings. Many other industries have similar problems (retail’s almost unhealthy need for a good Christmas season comes to mind). Is there anything we can do about this besides communal suffering? If we really wanted to, this problem of reliance on an often fickle income source could be corrected. For example, the present economic downturn wouldn’t effect us much if Maui primarily manufactured and sold, say, toothpaste. People need toothpaste no matter what their financial condition, and it’s inexpensive enough that they are unlikely to stop using their favorite brand and seek out cheaper alternatives when their personal financial situation deteriorates. However, it’s an accepted fact that manufacturing doesn’t work here—the shipping costs for raw materials in and finished goods out are prohibitive. So even if we tried very hard, it’s unlikely our community would be successful in any attempt to become the next manufacturing moguls of the world, toothpaste or otherwise.



AUGUST 06, 2009

If not manufacturing, what could we do to collectively make a living besides tourism? If we imagine ourselves as a community watching one of those jobposting commercials, and in an epiphany decide we’re ready to make a completely new start, just what are our options? What industries are more fulfilling than tourism, pay well and, perhaps more importantly, would actually work? Let’s go on a hypothetical “career search” for our community, keeping in mind what we’re looking for. We need an industry that would pay $2.3 billion every year like tourism does (well, did) so we

island’s balance of payments, and create a safety net in case of some unforeseen emergency that interrupted our shipping. Final answer: it won’t be a complete replacement, but should be strongly supported by government policy and your spending choices. Medical: Unfortunately there’s not enough community base, even for a center of excellence. This could work in, say, a small community right next to a major city—which could set aside land for hospitals, medical colleges, research facilities, offer tax breaks, etc. to become a community known for it’s

To get completely away from tourism as our fundamental economic driver would be a difficult and time-consuming journey. can maintain our standard of living, while at the same time improving our quality of life without damaging our environment. Ready? Let’s assess some possible “job offers,” and see how they stack up against tourism. Manufacturing: As already noted, we’re too far away from raw materials and end users—and one look at the sugar plant tells us we don’t want a bunch of factories on Maui. Plus, factory jobs are the poster children for unsatisfying career choices. Final answer: not likely except for some small specialty items. Farming: Unfortunately the only farm product that could generate billions in revenue isn’t legal. With legal crops the work is hard and it doesn’t pay well (at either the owner or laborer level). However, it does make a nice complement to other industries. A healthy farming industry could reduce our reliance on food imports. This would help our


medical expertise. However, again, our geographic location makes this choice economically unviable. Additionally, there’s no way our state government, which is essentially run by Oahu, would ever grant the certificates of need necessary to even get started. This is a government-regulated industry; Oahu can and will keep us a medical backwater for a complex variety of political reasons, including the need to support their own medical industry. Final answer: great, fulfilling, high paying jobs—but forget it. Energy: There is none to export that actually creates sizable quantities of good jobs. The solar farm on Lanai and continuing geothermal research are worthwhile experiments, but don’t create many actual positions after the installation is complete. Green energy technology is an interesting possibility—but it’s not classified with energy. Final answer: technology may change

this in the future, but we’re currently not qualified for this “career.” Raw Materials: Maui doesn’t really have any to export except our sand to Oahu, which apparently won’t last long. Additionally, this is a low-margin industry and there are those darned shipping costs again. Final Answer: no. Professional Services: Legal, architectural, accounting, etc. are high paying, quality of life careers, but due to the necessity of specializing in local law, planning and tax rules these are difficult to deliver at a distance. Those services that aren’t locally driven are already being exported overseas to places like India and the Philippines. Some similar services, like customer or technical support, are so price sensitive that we can’t compete with Oklahoma—much less India—with our high cost of living here. Plus, our community tends to have an accent that adds a nice local flavor for tourists, but makes it difficult to serve the Mainland (McDonald’s discovered this in reverse when it tried to setup call centers on the Mainland for their drivethroughs—they had to find local voices after a few weeks because there was a communication difficulty). Final answer: not really exportable; we should only expect as much of this industry as we can consume ourselves. Retail: We already have a strong retail base, but the only portion bringing in outside income is tourism retail. Most of the other retail tends to sell products manufactured elsewhere, which actually damages our balance of payments when local money is enticed offshore for that new item from China or the Mainland. As an interesting example, take Cuba, where the tourism industry abruptly halted in the early 1960s due to the American boycott. Without any other valuable export product, their economy has remained crippled for going on half a century— unable to buy anything on the international market. What does that have to do with retail? Retail is primarily one of our drains, not a spigot, and as such it quick-

ly removes the capital we work so hard to entice to our tropical paradise. Final answer: this can never be an industry we rely on to make our living. Education: A top quality, full-time university could draw outside students, research dollars and create a college town economy. However, the cost is over-the-top prohibitive, and the amount of time necessary to establish a “must go” destination school (like a USC) would take decades. Who’s going to front those dollars? Certainly not the state, which is committed to Oahu and the University of Hawaii system (Maui Community College notwithstanding). Final answer: it’s a compelling idea, with excellent possibilities for careers and outside revenue, two or more generations would have to be fully committed before this could come to fruition. Construction & Development: Two issues: too much already, especially right after a boom, and it doesn’t really bring in outside revenue because construction is financed with loans, not revenue sources. While people with second homes pay with outside money, all locals who have to service these loans must do so with money coming into the island. So construction creates a borrowing-fueled

economic bump while it’s occurring, then a debt-servicing economic slump when the mortgage payments start (sound familiar?). This industry would also continue to divide our community between the extremely vocal no-growth proponents (which do appear to be in the minority) and the far less organized majority. While it’s hard to define this majority, here’s an attempt: they have no plan, but they dislike the fanaticism of zero growth. Final answer: to protect the ‘aina and avoid false “profits” we should not base our entire economy on this boom/bust industry, but—as with professional services—a small, healthy one should always exist. Finance: The truth is that to be in this industry you need to either have capital to provide or to setup markets for that capital to collect and allocate itself. Or, and this is even harder, you need to reach for the complex mix of both called insurance companies. This is a difficult industry to break into, and frankly New York beat us to it 200 years ago. Final answer: not going to happen, sorry. Technology: When you take a first look it’s such a compelling idea. With our abundance of environmentally minded citizens and our healthy solar,

wind, geothermal and wave energy reserves, Maui as a Mecca for testing and developing green technology is an option that has been discussed by some local visionaries. This also segues nicely with the farming industry—they can work together to make us a true self-sustaining community. Unfortunately, a technology industry needs three key things to be competitive on the world stage: trained scientific minds, ultracompetitive entrepreneurs and a supportive community. We have none of those three in sufficient quantities to make a solid run at it anytime soon. Yet we could start—these things get started as trickles. Perhaps a good first step would be setting up a county-funded technology center that follows a model like the Manoa Innovation Center (a state run entity, which of course is on Oahu). Final answer: intriguing, but lots of roadblocks. hen you look at that list, you realize there aren’t many other industries that will work for Maui. The one that might is technology, but unfortunately every other community with economic problems is fighting for this one. And even if we start now and are ultimately successful, we’re still generations away from replacing tourism. Now that we’ve looked at our options, perhaps the real question we should ask ourselves is whether it’s really in our best interests to “change jobs”? To get completely away from tourism as our fundamental economic driver would be a difficult and time-consuming journey. And tourism has great advantages, especially for us. Hawaii in general and Maui in particular are among the most amazing places in the world, and we’re also blessed with particularly heavyspending visitors year-round. Yes, we have what appears to be a slow season, but compared to, say, a ski resort town where most businesses simply close down for eight months, our slow season is quite benign. Being a tourist destination also supports a more diverse restaurant industry. A community our size would normally have far fewer establishments to chose from (and more of those would be generic chains) if it weren’t for the additional visitors eating out every night to support them. There are clearly other advantages to tourism, but perhaps most importantly: our visitors do us a huge favor every time we talk with one of them—they are still in awe of our little island. How valuable is it to be reminded we reside in one of Earth’s most cherished spots? Since it pays the bills too, we should all be willing to live with that. MTW

Options include: the obligatory breakfast sandwich, with eggs, melting provolone and tomatoes on a toasted bagel or croissant (add meat for an extra $1.50); two omelets, the Spanish (salsa, Manchego cheese and sour cream) and the spinach and Swiss, which also comes with tomatoes and red onions; and the quiche du jour, done up meaty or meatless depending on your persuasion.

Tutti Frutti’s South Maui outpost (there’s another one in Kahului and they also have locations on Oahu, the Big Island, the Mainland and various points internationally) is housed in the cluster of shops at the Kukui Mall. The décor is minimal and seating is limited; it’s pretty much all about the yogurt. So, here’s the deal: you grab a cup and proceed around the self-serve stations, first choosing a flavor (or flavors) of yogurt, then adding toppings—fruit, berries, nuts, crumbled cookies, the works. Once completed, your melting masterpiece is weighed at the register to determine the price. All ingredients are created equal, so an ounce of blueberries is equal to an

ounce of chocolate sprinkles is equal to an ounce of almonds, etc. Yogurt flavors run the gamut from mandatory (strawberry, raspberry, mango) to outside-the-box (melon, green tea, taro). All are light and slightly watery with a distinct tang—refreshing and flavorful but devoid of the heaviness and dry mouth associated with ice cream. Not to say ice cream doesn’t have its place, just like shave ice, smoothies and all the other heat-beating options. But, for something a little different, add Tutti Frutti to your summertime rotation. MTW

The uke man cometh Local boy blessed in more ways than one kulele virtuoso and singer/songwriter Derick Sebastian is poised for nothing less than Hawaiian music greatness. With a new, all-instrumental album due out by year’s end, I predict a Na Hoku Hanohano Award on the horizon and expect that generations to come will one day revere the name Sebastian along


Derick Sebastian Web site: Next gig: Every Sunday, 7-9:30pm at Hula Grill in Lahaina

with local legends the likes of Pahinui, Ho’opi‘i, Kamakawio‘ole, Cazimero and Beamer. His technical skills are astounding, but it’s his glowing Maui boy presence you can’t help but admire. I last saw Sebastian open for Paula Fuga at June’s Maui Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours event hosted by Island Sign, and was mesmerized by his fingers-flying take on classics like Carlos Santana’s “Europa,” along with his set of impassioned originals. A life-long music lover who decided to pursue

his art full-time four years ago, Derick has found himself escalating from the opening slot at gigs to the audience-grabbing headliner, and has made popular regular Mainland tours. “If I’m going to be away from my family, I want to be working doing something I love, not something I was purely obligated to do,” says Sebastian, who’s been spending more and more time on the road. “Everything I do is for my family.” This self-managed artist sat down with me recently with his beautiful ohana in tow. His two sons, Santana and Marley, are wonderfully well-behaved (a share of credit goes to his radiant wife, Raymi). Though still toddlers, the boys exude all the charm of their proud parents. Sebastian remembers his own childhood as “fairytale perfect…We did not have much, [but] we were happy and content. We simply felt blessed to have each other.” Blessings are a common theme. Even the tragic loss of his father to an industrial accident when he was three years old is put into his “everything happens for a reason” paradigm. “My father would not want me to be upset, fail, and blame others. He would want me to be strong, successful, and appreciative of life’s gifts,” says Sebastian. “I also believe that Dad has watched over me all these years, and helped to create the paths that I have chosen.” Between his regular on-island gigs at Hula Grill, private parties and Mainland

tours, Sebastian is realizing a dream that began back in the sixth grade. He was introduced to the ukulele—“a little instrument that sounded cool”—by teacher and mentor Sam Ellis. By eighth grade, he’d won a statewide ukulele competition with a song he co-wrote with Ellis titled “Magic Room.” “This is what I enjoy doing. This is what I know I should be doing,” says Sebastian. “I try to encourage people and say, ‘Hey, this is what’s right for me—but you gotta find you. It’s hard

work, but that’s what it takes to live your dreams.” On the heels of an April tour, Sebastian is already preparing for another Mainland venture in October. It’d be wise to keep an eye out for his new instrumental release, so you can say you had it first. As his trademark states, the Hawaiian music world will “Stop. Uke. [And] Listen.” MTW

glimpse of the last scene, which establishes that their relationship lasts a total of 500 days. Title cards mark the beginning of every sequence, as we get glimpses of different days of their relationship in random order. Like its title, the movie is clever but full of itself. It was a wise choice to cast Deschanel (who was honored at

the Maui Film Fest this year when the film screened) in the title role. Rather than cast a flashier, more obvious actress, the filmmakers decided to showcase Deschanel’s considerable, thinking man’s, girl-nextdoor beauty. Unfortunately, while she’s as appealing as ever, her performance underlines what a limited actress she is, particularly in the film’s most complex role. Gordan-Levitt shows he can carry a movie, and, like Deschanel, casting him was a smart decision; he’s more of an Everyman than most movie stars, yet the story only offers him two different emotions—gleeful or depressed. The beginning suggests we’re in for a cinematic deconstruction of the modern romantic comedy and, for a while, it looks like the film might actually break new ground. But with the obligatory Meet Cute scene, the inclusion of the inevitable best friends who are only around to ask the lead “So, what’s she like?” and the endless montages, the film tips its hand and winds up being the same-old, same-old love story.

Pillow fight! juxtaposes the leading man’s expectations with reality. Director Marc Webb has a good eye and clearly knows how to merge beautiful cityscape imagery with a great song (the soundtrack is well worth a download). There are some funny throwaway jokes, like a nod to Patrick Swayze’s only number one pop song, but, like the big fantasy dream sequence that takes a good joke and hammers it to death, the film misses its chance to be remarkable by trying too hard. The term “art movie” used to refer to

risk-taking works like Blue Velvet. But now, more often than not, it means safe, “quirky,” star-studded movies about white angst, like Napoleon Dynamite, Juno and anything by Wes Anderson. Some of these films work beautifully, but many have their head up their okole, and are nowhere near as profound as they think they are. MTW

Antiques Roadshow (& tell)

Saturday (Aug. 8), 7:30pm, Market St., Wailuku

Saturday (Aug. 8), 2-7pm, Bailey House Museum, Wailuku

The month is new and First Friday looms. Stroll Wailuku’s funky Market St. (conveniently closed off to traffic) and join the crowd of colorful regulars. The usual fare of Market’s merchants is augmented by an array of entertainers, food booths and sidewalk wares to make for a jammin’ jumble of pau hana Maui mingling. Requests is turning their corner of the street into a b-boy battleground, while local boy Dezman (pictured) performs at Cafe Marc Aurel. Also, be sure to check out Gallerie Ha as they debut their new show “Yes We Can Paint,” featuring the artwork of local celebs like Mayor Charmain Tavares, Gary Kubota of the Honolulu StarBulletin, Jay April of Akaku, County Councilmember Jo Anne Johnson and Maui Time’s own fearless leader, Tommy Russo. Free.

Antique and vintage wares get me giddy; I squeal every Monday when PBS’s Antiques Roadshow pops up on my DVR. The only thing that could be cooler is a festival of treasures past with a purely Pacific theme—and our friends at the Bailey House Museum and Maui Historical Society are giving us just that. It’s too late to submit items, but general admission onlookers can explore the fascinating array of “artifacts, antiques, curios and artwork pertinent to Hawaii and the Pacific/Asian Basin” for the small kine fee of $5. There’ll also be live entertainment, a silent auction, pupus and a slideshow. Learn what historic jewel might be hiding in your home and discover fun facts about things you didn’t even know existed. Prizes will be awarded for “Best in Show,” “Most H i s t o r i c a l l y Significant” and “Most Hawaiian.” $5. Photo by Oscar O Oscar

Team America

Bon dance the night away

Saturday (Aug. 8), 7:30pm, Events Lawn, MACC

Saturday (Aug. 8), 7:30-9:30pm, Kula Shofukuji Mission

America is a touring machine (they claim to have played 100-150 shows a year for the last 20 years) and they’re coming to Maui to help celebrate 50 years of statehood. Contrary to popular belief, their name has no overt political connotations; rather, the group is named for the homeland of the British-reared bandmembers’ military fathers. All the more appropriate for our local celebration as, after all, our state flag is one-quarter Union Jack. Fans of the band should already have their tickets (if not, act fast). Even if you can’t scoop tickets, hit up the venue early for a free statehood event open to the public (4-6pm). Fill up on hotdogs (just 50 cents!), enjoy Jimmy Mac & The Kool Kats and check out the community booths, all sponsored by the 50th Anniversary of Statehood Commission. $45 General admission/$65 VIP.

Get out your getas! Only a few bon dances remain in a summer season that’s sadly winding down, so go Upcountry to my favorite festival installment, hosted by the Kula Shofukuji Mission. Everything illuminated by the soft light of colorful strung lanterns, it’s a sight to behold—a beautiful bevy of dancers dressed in bright silk kimono and hapi coats, forming concentric rings around the yagura, a tower erected for the festival where taiko drummers perch, adding an enthusiastic live beat. Treat yourself to a heaping bowl of chow fun, top it off with dessert of warm andagi or sweet shaved ice, and you’re well on your way to a perfect August night. You’ll likely end up parking roadside along Kekaulike Ave. (or Old Haleakala Hwy., whatever you like call ‘um), but it’s worth the manini walk. One of the loveliest things about Hawaii’s bon dances is the wholesome hospitality; everyone is encouraged to follow along and dance. Maybe it’s the Kula people or the town’s thick piney foliage, crisp air and the gentle mountain mist that rolls down through the hillside graveyard, alive with the aroma of incense and tangerine—but whatever it is, it’s hard not to find a little peace and enchantment.

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) Worse than cheating in general is trying to cheat, still losing, and then getting caught (and subsequently humiliated). That, my friend, is the lame scenario you’re eligible for this week should you stray from the rules you agreed to. Is that really how you want to spend your birthday season? It’s not only a terrible idea in general—it’s doubly bad because you have every likelihood of succeeding with flying colors legitimately, without any funny business. Don’t sabotage yourself by taking any tempting, dishonest shortcuts. Why not just abide by the guidelines, win fair and square, and call it a day?

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) Why, whenever someone reveals that they’re a bit anal, overly-organized, or even obsessive-compulsive, do people automatically leap to the conclusion that they’re a Virgo? While there’s certainly a grain of truth to this, as most of the Virgos I know approach many aspects of their life with a certain pragmatism, this association is hardly fair, as all of them are actually quite balanced about it. Efficient isn’t necessarily uptight or rigid. In fact, appropriately executed, efficiency can lead to more time for relaxation. This week, show off just how laid-back and chilled-out you can be.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) The problem with drama queens is that most of the time there’s almost nothing you can do to shut them down. If they’re determined to stir up shit, even your best-intentioned efforts will only escalate things. That’s why, when you’ve seen this kind of over-the-top conflict arise before, you’ve usually done your best to steer clear and wait for the storm to pass. However, every so often, you have the magical ability to step in and part the clouds before the thunder, lightning, and downpour even begin. The problem is knowing when this will work, and when it will just embroil you in a mess you should have avoided. Luckily, you have me to occasionally tip you off: this week is one of those weeks when the clouds will obey your every whim. Tell the sun to shine through, and it shall.

SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) Delegate. Even though you’re more or less responsible for how this situation turns out, that doesn’t mean you’re necessarily going to be the best one to make it successful. In this case, you’re better off asking, demanding, or begging other people to do some of the heavy lifting for you. Don’t take it all on by yourself. One of your greatest strengths is knowing your own weaknesses and limitations. (An Aries, for example, might burn out or fall flat on her face by pushing too far beyond those.) Make sure you acknowledge and honor them. While it’s desirable to challenge yourself, be humble enough to know when someone else would rise to the challenge much more ably, and let them.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) Some people have cultivated unusual tastes. They think cheese that smells like a sweaty foot is scrumptious (to be fair, I think those who enjoy cheese in a can are arguably weirder). It takes a while to get to that point and sometimes you don’t even notice you’re there until someone else points out just how unusual it is. You may prefer milder cheeses, but your preferences in other areas have gotten just that wild and strange, without you even noticing. Good for you! Own it, and don’t be surprised when someone else seems a little weirded out; use the opportunity to make their world just that little bit wider.

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) Art, fashion, music and the like are all so subjective. What is edgy to one person is just plain trashy to someone else. What’s fascinating to this guy is tediously predictable to that guy. This is why you’ve largely gone for stuff that’s more cut and dry. You can’t argue with numbers, for example; either they add up or they don’t. I can appreciate why you’d gravitate to that way of doing things, but please resist your temptation to apply those types of rules to things outside that world (like art or relationships). There, the equations don’t work. Trying to make them balance out is simply an annoying waste of your time.

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) It’s never too late to switch roads. It really and truly isn’t. I won’t disagree that changing your life path is much easier at seven than at seventy, but it’s never impossible. Your rationale that it’s simply too late is just a way of tripping yourself up. Sure, some paths are closed to you—you’re not likely to become an Olympic gymnast or an astronaut starting in your forties, for example. But that doesn’t mean all routes are blocked off. In fact, there are so many still open, even at seventy, that they vastly outweigh the ones whose bridges are washed out by age or missed opportunity. Stop feeling stuck, and just choose one of the myriad of roads leading away from here.

PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) The dichotomy of being Piscean means you can simultaneously be astoundingly humble, and a legend in your own time. It’s both fascinating and confounding, this ability to apparently occupy two vastly different spaces at once. It seems to defy physics, or logic. However, don’t feel bad about it. If anyone tries to browbeat you into being just one thing at a time, tell them (sweetly of course) to piss off. This is one of your fascinating strengths, and the more you own and embody it this week, the better off (and more successful) you’ll be.

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Rams don’t usually do subtlety. Your main technique is just to charge in and pound on things until they look the way you want them to look. Consequently, when you try to be tactful, diplomatic, or understated, you suck at it. You usually overcompensate, and no one gets the hint, not even a little bit. Don’t be too dismayed. Effective subtlety is an art (apprentice yourself to a successful Capricorn and you’ll see it in action). If you want to get good at it, keep practicing. Or else just lower your horns and charge in. After all, it’s gotten you this far, hasn’t it?

TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) In Iceland, the majority of the population believes in elves. I’m not kidding. When asked in all seriousness if elves are real, more than half of the Icelandic people will tell you that yes, of course they are. Many claim to have seen or otherwise had encounters with the fey folk. I’m sure you practical Taureans scoff at them, but really, who are you to disagree with an entire nation? My point is: the world as you know it isn’t exactly the same one many other people experience. When their perspective differs from yours, don’t automatically assume they’re wrong, especially this week—you’re the one that’s likely missed the mark.

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Most snack foods are designed to make it very hard to stop eating them. It’s virtually impossible to open a bag of chips or popcorn and only consume one handful. In fact, for some people it’s quite difficult not to simply finish the bag. Don’t delude yourself that your willpower is so superior. It’s not. What you’re contemplating doing is like opening the bag of popcorn and only eating three kernels. It pretty much can’t be done (and even if it could, what’s the point?). Your choices here are obvious: resign yourself to finishing the whole bag, or don’t open it at all.

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Who woke up this morning and elected you president? Well, everyone. Whatever the circumstance, you may find yourself suddenly and surprisingly with more authority, power, or money than you really know what to do with. Don’t let it go to your head. Even though this came on you all at once, you don’t need to act on it right away. Take some time to sort things out and see what can best be done with this strange little windfall. If you decide to run with it, you’re very likely to trip and fall on your face. If I were you I’d just sit down and have a good think before I even took another step.
