ÂV{tÇz|Çz Åç ytvx V{tÇzxw Åç Ä|yxÊ To Dr. Ly, staff and to whom it may concern: I thought all Maui dermatologists were the same until I visited Dr. Ly, the only female cosmetic dermatologist on Maui. As a woman, I was amazed at how easy it was to ask questions, which I would feel uneasy discussing with a male doctor. Dr. Ly’s perceptive experience for the results I wanted minimized my stress and made my decision easy. I was amazed at how painless and easy the experience was with immediate results. It was like the clock was turned back a decade with the Vogue Lift. I was back to work on Monday where my coworkers thought I looked 10 years younger and asked if I had a mini face lift. Changing my face has changed my life. I would highly recommend you for both cosmetic and dermatology services and to all those who want a life changing experience. Your Client LM

MAUI TIME WEEKLY


This is regarding you [Anthony Pignataro] ultimately being responsible for what gets printed and released in Maui Time Weekly. Years ago, when the publication first hit the stands, and Mark [D’Antonio] was involved, it was a refreshing and essential addition to Maui’s entertainment scene, as well it contained valuable information for anyone— tourists and residents alike. Maui has always been known in my perspective for being a sort of “smalltown” version of anything it attempts to emanate from the mainland. There are many sad attempts, in my opinion, at accomplishing many of these efforts to copy a hip mainland scene, and in the beginning, Maui Time did a better than most job at coming across aware and cool, and adding a flare of a clue to this local and often lame scene. It has been a while since I regularly read this magazine, though I still do pick it up from time to time, and though it should theoretically improve with age, it has in some ways, yet has not in others in my opinion. I will try not to be rude, for that is not my purpose here, but I must admit that it is somewhat nauseatingly unprofessional, when the very job you and others in your organization get paid to do is simply not getting done— but frequently. It’s not like these are once-in-a-great-while occurrences, and it is not like you guys do not have the means to attain whatever correct information is out there—it is available to you, and I know for a fact you have the equipment and the resources to do so. I’m sure you are wondering when I’m going to give you examples. Okay, I only have two, mainly because I have many things to do today, but also because both recent times I picked up the paper to read it, I saw one mistake each time. It’s also not like I’m reading cover to cover—these things are practically jumping out at me. The first example is “The Ed’s.” I play in a band called “The Edge.” This band has performed on Maui for over a decade. I have personally performed with them for about four years now. We were booked at Henry’s a couple of weeks ago, and whomever is in charge of “The Grid” (or is it “The Fridge”? “The Bib”? “The Bread”?) obviously didn’t merely allow this blunder, yet without checking to make sure he/she heard it right (is it Jessica? That’s who it lists in the front as being in charge of the calendar...) she printed what she apparently thought she heard. I have never worked for a publication, but that is simply common sense. We try to make a living playing music and mistakes like that do not help bring in peo-

ple who want to come see us perform. The second example, which I am sure you have already heard about more than once, and is nothing short of absolutely and humorously lame—in the recent “2007 Best Of Maui” issue, Mana‘o (notice the spelling) Radio 91.5 FM (notice the frequency modulation) won best radio station (again), and all you guys had to do was check out a back issue, go online to the website, turn on the radio while in Kahului, call Kathy Collins or ANYONE at Mana‘o (244-2032), etc. to get the correct information - not only on the name itself, but on the location on the FM dial. You guys spelled it “Mano‘a,” and listed the FM location as 90.7. All I could think was, “What the hell are those guys doing over there?!?!?!?” So, that’s pretty much all for now. Please know that I do appreciate the publication, and if I didn’t, I wouldn’t have taken my Monday morning to write this. I happen to know Tommy [Russo]. I have lived on Maui for 10 and a 1/2 years. I am literate. I am forgiving, and I understand and make plenty of mistakes myself. However, in my opinion, it is time for you guys to lay off the weed a bit while at work, and even if you don’t, at least double-check your facts and spelling before going to print. -Josh Greenbaum, Maui Drummer/Musician and Mana‘o Radio DeeJay, via email

The Superferry is coming! The Superferry is coming! She’s already visited Kahului Harbor—though not to pick anyone up or even let visitors on board—but the start date for voyages is still an unknown, which is at least a little disconcerting for ML&P, which has sunk a million bucks into the thing. Our good friends at MECO, though, seem to be the real power brokers here—and I mean that literally. According to the Aug. 1 Maui News, one of Superferry project manager Duane Kim’s jobs includes “waiting for Maui Electric Co. to bring permanent power to the end of Pier 2 where there will be a covered passenger waiting area as well as a vehicle staging lot.” The Superferry has to wait for MECO like the rest of us working people?! Making matters worse, on Aug. 2 Judge Joel August ruled that the state Department of Transportation needs to do a new traffic assessment on the Superferry. Making matters much worse, in defending his original finding that the Superferry would have “no significant” traffic impact on Kahului, traffic analyst Dick Kaku said in open court that he used the worst possible conditions for his analysis, basing it on the Superferry carrying its maximum load of 282 cars, when in fact Superferry officials have already said that they expect no more than 110 cars in a usual trip. “Don’t tell that to the investors,” August quipped, according to the Aug. 3 Maui News.

ALL HAIL CRANE! That’s right, kids—A&B’s shipping subsidiary Matson Navigation has finally—FINALLY!—finished installing its 150-foot mobile crane at the end of Kahului Harbor’s Pier 1. The significance of such a beast—it can lift 40 tons, after all—wasn’t lost on Matson Senior Vice President Gary North: “Our main objective is to explore new ways to promote that growth through service enhancements and port development initiatives,” he said in an online July 31 Pacific Business News story. Seriously, anyone who talks like that has more power than I can even imagine. MTW

MEDIAWATCH

The Maui News fails to give the whole story on Whole Foods Sometimes, I think Harry Eagar of The Maui News wants my job. Ostensibly, his job as mainstream daily reporter is to provide readers with unbiased stories that fairly weigh all points of view to a given issue. But every so often, Eagar spits out a story that’s about as balanced as a three-wheeled car. Called “advocacy journalism,” these stories enthusiastically embrace a clear bias—usually for big corporations. On Nov. 10, 2005, Eagar carried GMO-manufacturer Monsanto’s water in “Sees a growth industry in isle.” On Feb. 22, 2007, Eagar went to bat for Hawaii Superferry investor John Lehman in “Superferry official discusses operation and business model.” And last week, on Aug. 2, Eagar shilled for supermarket giant Whole Foods in the explosively headlined piece “Store planned for Maui Mall.” “Whole Foods is not just a corporate version of a farmer’s market,” Eagar wrote of the big chain’s plans to open a new store in the Maui Mall in late 2008 or early 2009. “It also promotes organic food. Whole Foods doesn’t just sell tomatoes. It sells a philosophy that organic farming is ‘the best method of promoting sustainable agriculture and protecting the environment and the farm worker.’” Not that there’s anything intrinsically wrong with this—Maui Time, after all, publishes advocacy journalism all the time. But The Maui News doesn’t usually publish advocacy pieces—except in special columns and editorials. And more importantly is the fact that even advocacy pieces should acknowledge arguments and evidence contrary to the stated point of view, and deal with them as best as possible. On the recent Whole Foods story, this Eagar did not do. Instead, he chose to write about the company’s plans to come to Maui, talk about how the store planned to buy produce from local Maui growers, speculate on whether the store would adopt energy efficient standards and talk up the chain’s commitment to organic food. Whole Foods is a $5 billion company currently operating 197 stores in the U.S., Canada and U.K. It’s also trying to become even larger by merging with the Wild Oats chain of health food supermarkets, though that has yet to be approved by the Federal Trade Commission, which is con-

cerned about anti-trust issues. In truth, Whole Foods has done a remarkable job helping people eat healthier. In addition to selling organic, locally grown produce (though at prices that cause many customers to joke the name of the chain should be “Whole Paycheck”), the company explicitly labels products that don’t contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs), limits senior manage-

“The union is like having herpes. It doesn’t kill you, but it’s unpleasant and inconvenient and it stops a lot of people from becoming your lover.” - Whole Foods CEO John Mackey from his 1992 pamphlet “Beyond Unions”

ment compensation to no more than 14 times that of the average employee’s salary and has, since 1998, appeared on FORTUNE magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” list. Curiously, none of those facts made it into Eagar’s story. Also bizarrely missing from Eagar’s story was the name of the single most important person in Whole Foods history: Chief Executive Officer John Mackey. Here, by leaving out any discussion of Mackey and his philosophy, background, unutterable loathing of organized labor, having a Star Trek poster hang in his office or recent investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Eager has committed a sin of omission of the first order.

Mackey, 53, opened his first store in Austin, Texas in 1978. According to a July 2004 profile in Fast Company, Mackey “flies commercial and likes to rent the cheapest car.” He “typically wears shorts and hiking boots to work” and converted to a strict vegan diet in 2003 after a long and sometimes brutal correspondence with an animal-rights activist. Mackey, who mandated that every Whole Foods store would contain a book listing every employee’s (“team member’s”) salary that any “team member” could examine, is also fantastically anti-union. “The union is like having herpes,” Mackey wrote in his 19-page, 1992 pamphlet “Beyond Unions.” “It doesn’t kill you, but it’s unpleasant and inconvenient and it stops a lot of people from becoming your lover.” That quote, multiplied throughout pro-labor sites across the Internet, exemplifies Mackey’s views. His actions are just as harsh. In 2002, workers at the Madison, Wisconsin Whole Foods voted to affiliate themselves with United Food and Commercial Workers Local 1444. Mackey refused to recognize the election, had two organizers fired and spent the next two years battling the union. In 2004, the National Labor Relations Board sided with Mackey, ending the matter. Given Hawai‘i’s long relationship with organized labor, you’d think mentioning that bit of history might be relevant. But not to Eagar. Also curiously absent from the story was any hint that Mackey is involved in a very embarrassing and curious matter with the SEC. On July 16 of this year, SEC investigators contacted Whole Foods corporate managers as part of investigation into a seven-year series of anonymous rants and messages Mackey apparently posted to various financial web sites. The messages, carrying the name “rahodeb,” boosted Whole Foods and attacked Wild Oats, which Whole Foods wants to take over. The day after the call from the SEC, Whole Foods posted a terse announcement on its own website saying it would “fully cooperate” with the investigation. The same day, Mackey himself issued an even shorter but far more interesting statement: “I sincerely apologize to all Whole Foods Supermarket stakeholders for my error in judgment in anonymously participating on online financial message boards,” Mackey said. “I am very sorry and I ask our stakeholders to please forgive me.” Harry, how could you neglect that?

AUGUST 9, 2007

Most Maui residents are aware of the battle raging over Honolua Bay and Lipoa Point. In April Maui Land and Pineapple Co. (ML&P) rolled out its development plans: 40-something homes on the Mauka side of the Pi‘ilani Highway, a new golf course overlooking the bay and—to sweeten the deal—a new surf park and facilities for residents and visitors. Their efforts were met by a huge public outcry prompting ML&P to take its plans off the table indefinitely. Caught in the middle of this dispute like some poor neglected stepchild is Honolua Stream. At one time the stream flowed year-round, bringing rainwater from the West Maui Mountains through the valley and into the bay. But these days the stream is a series of stagnant, mosquito-breeding pools, where the water flows into the bay only through underground channels or during heavy rain. For Elle Cochran, president of the Save Honolua Coalition, restoring the stream’s natural flow is pivotal for preserving Honolua’s fragile ecosystem. “It’s one of the most urgent issues we’re facing,” Cochran said. “Restoring stream flow will only help propagate aquatic life and preserve the coral reef.” The coalition claims on its website (savehonolua.org) that the stream is “rerouted to service golf courses, resorts, and areas as far away as Lahaina.” But Maui Land & Pine denies taking water from the stream. “We are not diverting water from Honolua Stream,” Kalani Schmidt of ML&P’s Community Development Division said. Pineapple production on and around Lipoa Point ceased in 2001 and, according to Schmidt, the company has not taken water from Honolua Stream since 2004. Except for “a brief period last summer during an extreme drought,” Schmidt added. In an effort to get to the bottom of the mystery of the disappearing stream, I hitched a ride with Schmidt to check out the situation. Turning quickly off the highway we passed several large homes under construction, part of the new Honolua Ridge development. Passing through a

MAUI TIME WEEKLY

The diversion grate where Honolua Stream’s entire contents plunge into a retention pool, then into a 4-inch PVC pipe. locked gate, we traversed a nauseatingly bumpy dirt road through a series of several more locked gates. After the ride we came upon a pair of Indiana Jones-style swinging bridges. We crossed cautiously, being sure to distribute our weight evenly across the span. A short walk from there and we came upon the stream. Around the 800-feet elevation, a manmade ditch bisects the stream. Built in 1903 to bring water from Pu‘u Kukui (one of the wettest spots on Earth) to Mahinahina, Honolua Ditch—which flows through mountains and deep gulches— is a feat of engineering genius by any standard. Schmidt said the rainwater then continues on into West Maui where it’s used for agriculture, irrigation and drinking water. “This was quite the undertaking,” Schmidt added. “It’s amazing it even exists.” At the intersection the stream flows into a large concrete and steel grate, into a concealed housing, then out into a deep concrete retaining pool and into a four-inch PVC pipe. The pipe then brings the water over the ditch and back into the streambed a few hundred feet downstream. “If that’s not a diversion, I don’t know what else to call it,” Cochran said. Once again, Schmidt denied claims that ML&P is taking water from Honolua. “All water that goes through the grate goes back into the stream,” Schmidt said. “But [we] do run water through the sys-

tem to keep it operational.” Schmidt argues there is simply not as much rainwater coming through the stream as in past years. “People say they remember the when the stream used to flow all year, but that was when it was being diverted,” she said. Archeological evidence of over 140 ancient Lo‘i in Honolua Valley indicates much more water must have flowed through the gulch in the past. Some could see this as proof that the last 100-years of diverting water have taken a toll on the stream. But it could also point to a larger, even more alarming trend of less and less rainfall in the West Maui Mountains. Data collected by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) does suggest a decrease in rainfall at Pu‘u Kukui as well as a decreased stream flow in nearby Honokohau. Though no data is provided for Honolua Stream, the study does show rain an increase in other areas of the West Mauis. Cochran said the USGS study does not account for the change in the stream’s condition. “There’s still rain up there,” she said. “If there’s rain [the stream] should be flowing.” Regardless of the reason, Honolua Stream isn’t doing well. A video posted on Savehonolua.org shows the stream miraculously bubbling back to life after heavy rains in the valley above. And about the only thing Save Honolua and ML&P seem to agree on is that it’s likely to get worse. MTW

Corporate Alien Invaders

Super Lounge

Who’s really controlling Maui’s destiny? different from our own, in terms of the intangible “quality of life” that makes Maui both an attractive place to live and a desirable place to invest. Focus Green Lecture Series speaker James Howard Kunstler, in his book The Long Emergency, describes corporate control well. “By ‘corporation,’ I mean a group enterprise given the legal status of a ‘person,’ with ‘rights,’ but in fact devoid of any human qualities of ethics, humility, mercy, duty, or loyalty that would constrain those rights,” he wrote. Paraphrasing Wendell Berry, he went on to say that, “a corporation essentially, is a pile of money to which a number of persons have sold their moral allegiance… with the single purpose of becoming a bigger pile of money.”

I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country; corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption in High Places will follow, and the Money Power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the People, until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands, and the Republic destroyed. –Abraham Lincoln

There was a time when corporations played a minor part in our business affairs, but now they play the chief part, and most men are the servants of corporations. -Woodrow Wilson It wasn’t long after Captain Cook arrived that island values began to shift to those of the white visitors. In addition to Christian proselytizing, these new arrivals saw the chance to profit from Hawaiian natural resources. Forging a business deal with Kamehameha I, sandalwood traders began to change the social structure of the islands from a production-foruse economy to a production-forprofit economy. Kamehameha I ordered his sub-chiefs and their commoners into the hills to collect the coveted sandalwood, which they exchanged for boats, guns and other white men’s goods. But the deal exacted a terrible toll, devastating the sandalwood forests and many of the native workers, who suffered from hard labor in the cold, damp conditions, as well as the scourge of white men’s diseases. By 1829, well before the Great Mahele introduced the foreign idea of private land ownership, the sandalwood trade ended just two decades after it began. Nearly two centuries later, corporate profiteers see Maui as a prestigious asset in their company portfolios. Slow growth advocates may target their dissatisfaction upon the local spokespersons for proposed projects, but the decisions for Maui’s future are usually made in corporate

Indeed, one of more than 120 testifiers at recent Land Use Committee hearings on Wailea 670 rezoning targeted investors Lehman Brothers and Cargill as “the new alien invasive species.” Lehman Brothers, with $503 billion in assets and $47 billion in revenue last year, ranked #47 on the Fortune 500 list of America’s top companies. In 2003, Lehman Brothers was one of 10 firms that entered into a settlement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and various other securities regulators, regarding undue influence by their investment banking divisions. The legal settlement included structural reforms and financial penalties of $80 million—a mere 0.17 percent of what the company took in last year. Agri-business giant Cargill is the second largest private corporation in the world. It’s been criticized for deforestation of the Amazon, as well as human rights violations regarding child labor in Mali and the Ivory Coast. Morgan Stanley, the new Makena Resort financier—along with Dowling Company—ranked #20, with revenues of $76 billion in 2006. What’s wrong with big corporations controlling large land holdings is that their monetary interests may be vastly

One of the most obvious corporate impacts on Maui is the closing of “Mom and Pop” stores with the recent infusion of “Big Box” stores. In just the past ten years, we have said “aloha” to the likes of Peggy and Johnny’s, Suda Store and Shishido Manju. This is in no small part the result of garish corporate outlets along the Dairy Road commercial corridor on the outskirts of Kahului. There, we’ve seen the establishment of several mega-corporate stores, see ALIEN, page 12

Not sure if you noticed, but the July 20 Maui News story “County, state and federal agents would aid in Superferry law enforcement” contains a booze-filled bombshell. Buried under 17 paragraphs are the following nine words: “The ferry expects to be licensed to serve liquor.” Let’s think about this. When it starts running in early September, the Hawaii Superferry Alakai—a ship designed to carry hundreds of automobiles that passengers drive on and drive off—will include a lounge. And a really nice lounge, at that. “A simple, economical upgrade to your ticket allows you to enjoy the deluxe Halalua Lounge, where you will be greeted by a welcome-aboard drink, a pupu, complimentary coffee and the lounge’s dedicated crew,” states Hawaiisuperferry.com. “Oversized leather seats, special lounge tables and eight LCD flat-screen televisions enhance the environment… So sit back with a cold draft beer, wine, or mai tai, buy a delicious sandwich, and admire the stunning forward views.” For the LC and the Maui Police Department—both of which have pushed very public campaigns against drunk driving—this should be raising bright red flags. Yet the reactions from the two departments are apparently pretty mild. According to the story, Maui PD Sergeant Stephen Orikasa said “Maui police have no plans for an enforcement effort specifically on drivers leaving the Superferry.” The Maui LC also doesn’t seem too concerned about the Superferry. At the Aug. 8 Liquor Commission hearing, LC Director Franklyn Silva told the commission that Hawaii Superferry just obtained a Class 8 license–similar to those issued to cruise ships–from Kauai County. That license allows the company to sell alcohol to passengers while the vessel is in transit–the journey from Oahu to Maui is estimated to take three hours–as well as the time the Alakai spends in port. At the hearing, the biggest Superferry issue seemed to be liquor fees–as in, which county would get them. According to Silva, the Superferry would distribute fees to the various counties depending on where sales took place.

COCONUT WIRELESS THE WEEK IN REVIEW

WEDNESDAY, Aug. 1 So the great wet blanket known as the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)—that pesky band of do-gooder meddling kids who for some reason still see the Bill of Rights as a vital and necessary check on our government’s authoritarian tendencies—wants the Hawai`i Department of Education to stop sending drug-sniffing dogs into public schools and quit allowing school officials to open student lockers whenever they please. “There’s just no rationale to allow for searches without a cause,” Hawai‘i American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) attorney Laurie Temple said in today’s Honolulu Star-Bulletin. “Hawaii has a history, a tradition of upholding student privacy rights and individual privacy rights in general.” Now while Temple is absolutely correct, she’s also missing a large point—namely, that school officials are doing all these searches without gathering any evidence or even reasonable suspicion to acclimate our children to society. These kids are, what? 15? 16? You think we’re still going to have a Bill of Rights and all its guarantees against “unreasonable search and seizure” when they reach voting age? Hell, you

power unless it finds the eyes to see things as they are in the world.” I don’t recommend doing the math on that one.

THURSDAY, Aug. 2 Noooooooooo! Actually, yes: according to today’s Maui News, the Lahaina Bypass is, once again, on hold. That’s right—there will be no groundbreaking anytime soon on the long sought-after alternative road through Lahaina Town. After 35 years of delays, false starts and empty promises, the culprit this time is the discovery of two ancient Hawaiian “archaeological sites” in the proposed corridor—sites that apparently didn’t show up when the state first surveyed the corridor 15 years ago. While you’re trying to figure that one out, think about the fact that this is just the “minibypass” we’re talking about (though in an ideal state its $48 million cost would get us a lot more than a single mile of pavement). What are state surveyors going to find when they start looking at the rest of the corridor?

FRIDAY, Aug. 3 Will someone please remind me why we have a Democratic Party? I ask because tonight the U.S. Senate—still controlled by the Democratic Party—voted 60-28 to approve the “Protect America Act of 2007.” The bill, which apparently just lasts for six months, makes it easier—and more legal!—for President George W. Bush to order secret warrant-less wiretaps. Hey, wasn’t stopping exactly these types of feelgood, just don’t ask Orwellian attacks our privacy, freedom and liberty one of the campaign promises of the Democrats when they took over the Senate last November? In a statement later quoted in The New York Times, Caroline Frederickson of the ACLU’s New York office said, “The Democrats caved in to the politics of fear we’re seeing from this administration. They didn’t want to be depicted as soft on terrorism. But this measure removes any court oversight from surveillance on Americans in a large number of cases.” As for our own Democratic U.S. Senators, Daniel Akaka voted nea, but Daniel Inouye voted yea.

SUNDAY, Aug. 5

Could this kill Wailea 670? Surprised? I’m not, especially given the fact that the two current front-runners for the Democratic presidential nomination— that would be U.S. Senators Hillary Clinton (D, New York) and Barack Obama (D, Illinois)—are right now arguing over which one has the balls to drop nuclear bombs on Afghanistan and/or Pakistan, two nations that are right now our allies.

SATURDAY, Aug. 4 By coincidence, not long after learning that the U.S. House of Representatives voted 227-183 to go along with the Senate in giving Bush—a man who constantly harps on the need for “good intelligence” but then insists on prosecuting the bloody, insane war in Iraq—even more secret surveillance powers (our own Democratic Congresswoman Mazie Hirono voted nay, though that doesn’t seem to have mattered much), I read the following passage in Tim Weiner’s Legacy of Ashes, a remarkable, terrifying new history of the Central Intelligence Agency: “No republic in history has lasted longer than three hundred years, and this nation may not long endure as a great

Not sure if you’ve noticed, but the Maui County Council Land Use Committee has really been working overtime on Wailea 670 (“Honua`ula” to its friends). They’ve held a bunch of hearings on the 1,400 homeproject, but because they’ve been scheduled during daylight hours—when it’s tough for working people to attend— three council members have gone on the record asking for an evening public hearing, so as many people as possible can comment on the proposed development and ask, if they so feel, how South Maui will deal with the project’s increased traffic and demand for water. Of course, committee chairman Mike Molina has been hesitant—according to the Aug. 4 Maui News, he even recessed the committee meeting at one point so there wouldn’t be any more public testimony. “I’m not going to let this turn into a circus,” Molina warned back on Aug. 1. Too late, Mike! That happened about five years ago, when the Maui Board of Ethics first advised you to recuse yourself from voting on any Makena rezoning because the Molina Family Trust owns 12.9 acres in Makena, then suddenly reversed course a month later and said it was fine for you to do as you pleased.

MONDAY, Aug. 6 Speaking of water, Charlie Jencks—the face of Wailea 670—now says developers will use reverse osmosis to ensure a steady stream of potable water to the project. “There are numerous side effects that accompany [reverse osmosis] use,” Wayne Bachman, a geologist and South Maui resident, said in written comments forwarded to me. “These include, but are not limited to; expense, high energy consumption requirements, waste-stream creation, waste disposal issues and inherent inefficiencies. Generally, 2 to 3 gallons of untreated water are required to produce one gallon of potable product. There are many existing reverse osmosis plants in use world-wide [sic]. It has been shown to be effective, however, very expensive with a high inefficiency quotient.”

NEWSOFTHEWEIRD JUSTICE? Ohio inmate Keith Bowles may spend the rest of his life in prison just because a federal judge miscalculated Bowles’ deadline for appealing his case. Bowles was convicted of murder in 1999, and his federal petition for a writ of habeas corpus was denied in 2004. However, the federal judge wrote “Feb. 27” as the deadline for appealing (mistakenly, because federal rules gave Bowles only until Feb. 24). Bowles’ Feb. 26 appeal was dismissed as too late by the U.S. Court of Appeals and, in June 2007, by the U.S. Supreme Court.

CAN’T POSSIBLY BE TRUE Sweden’s English-language news outlet reported in June that the government’s employment service had granted Roger Tullgren, 42, supplemental income benefits based on his illness of addiction to heavy-metal music. Tullgren (with long, black hair, tattoos and skull-and-crossbones jewelry and who said he attended nearly 300 concerts last year) said he had been addicted for 10 years but finally got three psychologists to sign off on calling his condition a disability. His employer now permits Tullgren to play his music at his dishwashing job.

WHAT A JERK In June 1995, Gordon Wood, who would subsequently be charged with Caroline Byrne’s murder in Sydney, Australia, arrived at the morgue shortly after her body did. He identified himself as her boyfriend, asked to see the body, and also asked, according to the attendant, “Do you mind if I look at her tits?” The attendant, according to a police report reviewed by a judge during a June 2007 court proceeding, refused, and Wood was

charged shortly afterward with having thrown the woman off a cliff.

MENT CONSIGN G CLOTHIN S for LADIE

INEXPLICABLE According to police, Derrick House and another man planned to kill four people in a 1985 Chicago drug hit and needed a stranger to knock on the door so that House and his companion could gain entry. They paid teenager Charles Green $25 to do that, and House completed the mission. Green was convicted and imprisoned for “participating” in the murder. House got the death penalty, but as a result of legal challenges, was recently released. House’s companion was never convicted. Thus, the only one of the three still in prison 22 years later is the one who just knocked on the door. In August, a judge is scheduled to hear Green’s latest petition for a new trial.

UNCLEAR ON THE CONCEPT In July, Jenny Brown, 62, entered her sponge cake in a contest sponsored by an organization in Wimblington, England. She was informed by judges that she had won “second place,” and was only later told that she was the only entrant, but was also told that she could not have first place.

REAL INTELLIGENCE Once-classified reports obtained by the Associated Press in May revealed that three times in late 2005 and early 2006, the U.S. Department of Defense issued espionage alerts regarding newly designed Canadian 25-cent pieces, which the Pentagon warned may contain embedded transmitters capable of eavesdropping, and which perhaps were given purposely to U.S. contractors working in Canada. Some time later, according to the reports, the Pentagon learned that the coin’s coating was not a film-and-mesh transmitter but merely a covering to preserve the limited-issue coin’s unique design.

including: Wal-Mart (Fortune 500 #1); Home Depot (#17); Costco (#32); Kmart (part of Sears portfolio, #38); Lowe’s (#45); McDonald’s (#103); Old Navy (#149); Office Max (#280); and Starbucks (#310). The employment formula is a familiar one, with management positions going to workers imported from the mainland, with lower-paying stock and retail positions remaining for local workers. Maui shoppers benefit from bigger selections and lower prices, but dollars spent travel offisland into corporate coffers. On Kaua‘i, the County Council recently passed a measure directed at proliferation of big-box stores, limiting their size. The council on the Big Island is considering a similar measure targeting “superstores,” defined as outlets with 90,000 square feet or more. This January, Maui Council Chair Riki Hokama introduced a draft ordinance nearly identical to the Big Island’s pending legislation. Hokama cited the superstores’ “tremendous adverse community impacts, including traffic congestion, increased demand on government infrastructure, negative environmental consequences, and harmful, often fatal impacts on small businesses.” On its shorelines, Maui’s resort destination properties have been undergoing a transformation as well. Several properties are converting from hotel to timeshare or luxury accommodations. Marriott International, with 2,700 properties in 67 countries, converted its Ka‘anapali hotel to the Maui Marriott Ocean Club. It’s in the process of demolishing the Wailea Beach Marriott Resort & Spa into a pricier St. Regis “hotel,” though all units will be sold as condos, starting at $1.5 million. Marriott ranks #203 on the Fortune 500 list. Starwood (#381) owns the Sheraton Maui, Westin Maui Resort & Spa and the Westin Ka‘anapali Ocean Resort Villas. The Kapalua Bay Hotel was recently razed, making way for the luxury Residences at Kapalua, which include “fractional ownership”—timeshare in monthly increments. Next door, the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua (recently purchased by GenCom), is going through a similar transformation, effectively putting 700 hotel workers on the unemployment lines while the site is under construction. Timeshares require less service industry employees than a regular hotel, and may also bring in guests who spend less per capita, though that is disputed. Council members

recognized this inequity, and responded by establishing a property tax rate higher than any other classification—$14 per thousand of assessed property value. Local plantation/resort entity Maui Land & Pineapple, Inc. has undergone numerous changes since Steve Case of AOL/TimeWarner purchased a $39.2 million controlling interest in 1999. Case bought out retirement packages of most of the company’s top leaders, and brought in David Cole, his long-time associate, as CEO. Cole has initiated a number of major changes, from Upcountry land sales to the proposed Pulelehua subdivision and the closing of the Kahului pineapple cannery. Simultaneously, Cole has exerted his influence in other areas. He now sits on the board of directors of The Nature Conservancy, Hawaiian Electric Company, Hawai‘i Superferry and Hawai‘i Bioenergy LLC. The case of Hawai‘i Superferry is a clear example of corporate powers overwhelming community efforts for fair and legal reviews of the project’s impacts. Take major investor John F. Lehman (not part of Lehman Brothers). His profile includes being a 9/11 Commissioner, signatory to the neoconservative Project for the New American Century and former Reagan Administration Navy Secretary. According to the J.F. Lehman & Co. website, “J.F. Lehman has completed the acquisition of 14 companies in 11 investments with an aggregate value of $1.4 billion.” Norwegian Cruise Lines (NCL) has quickly muscled their way into crowded Kahului Harbor, accounting for six days in port. Aided by a foreign-flag exemption orchestrated by Democratic U.S. Senator Daniel Inouye, NCL— which began inter-island Hawai‘i cruises in 2004—obtained a tremendous advantage over other cruise ships, which must stop at a foreign port of call during their excursions. Miami-based NCL is owned by Star Cruises of Singapore and Malaysia and is the third largest cruise company in the world. But they recently announced that they would move one of their three Hawai‘i liners to Europe next summer, citing high operating and labor costs. Then there’s health food store giant Whole Foods Market, which late next year will take over Star Market in the Maui Mall. What will be their impact on independently owned health food stores like Mana Foods, Alive & Well and Hawaiian Moons? Will they go the way of other recently deposed local stores? Like it or not, we live in a society in which huge corporations exert enormous influence upon our daily lives. Only by recognizing that fact may we understand the motives of those who shape Maui’s future, and do what’s necessary to protect our quality of life and sense of place. MTW


This is the Aloha State—tranquil, serene islands in the Pacific, populated by a friendly, relaxed bunch of good folks who really hate automobiles, people who damage automobiles, people who drive automobiles and, of course, people who work for the government offices that regulate automobiles and the people who drive/damage them. Guess Maui just isn’t ready for the internal combustion engine. In the mean time, enjoy! Brrrraaaaahhh! That’s the sound your car makes as you ROAR down our road at 5:20 a.m. every weekday morning, shaking our whole family awake. I mean, if you were driving something other than a rice-burning grocery cart, maybe I could understand. But to modify and lower your import truck is just ridiculous and unnecessary, and only makes you a wanna-be. Nut-up and buy a Chevy, dude! And what’s the deal with your Harley? On weekends when you break it out, no one is safe! The sound of your bike chases birds from their nests, animals from their resting places, spills coffee and knocks people off their couches! What on Earth is so cool about having a piece of metal between your legs that makes such a racket?! Seems like penile insufficiency issues to me...

The next time you pull someone over, could you at least have the brains to allow them to pull over in a safe area, instead of on a busy, narrow section of the highway, forcing traffic to veer into the opposite lane? What’s more important? You

Eh, guy driving the black Volkswagen on his way to Ka`ahumanu Center: You cut across two lanes without signaling or even looking behind you and didn’t even slow down!

know Sears and Macy’s probably had some good sales going on but, brah, it’s not worth getting me all pissed off and risking having to pay for my new car. Where’d you get the idea you were on a racetrack? Whatever, just realize that even though you didn’t cause an accident this time, it doesn’t mean you won’t the next time. Oh, did I hurt your feelings? Does someone need a hug? Grow up dumbass! Learn how to drive! To the spineless idiot who hit my car in the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) parking lot and then left: Thanks a lot! You’re about the lowest form of life. People pay a lot of money for their vehicles. I’m a single mother, and what you hit was our first brand new car, which I was finally able to afford by working two jobs. Now I have a dent in the side and the paint has been scratched bad enough that I have to get the door and side painted so it doesn’t rust. The most insulting part is you didn’t even have the guts to leave a note of apology. People are more likely to be forgiving and understanding with an apology than a hit-and-run. I hope you can sleep at night because I’m going to have worry about where I’m going to get the money to pay for the repairs.

what’s coming to you. You had no reason to do what you did. I wish you nothing but trials and trouble for the rest of the year. And the next time you take it upon yourself to damage other people’s property and attempt to ruin someone else’s life, think again.

This goes out to the guy in the silver minivan going no more than five miles per hour down Front Street in Lahaina. All I did was pass you so I could drive at least the speed limit. But for some reason you got all pissed off and followed my wife and I to the Cannery Mall, where we were headed to enjoy the classic cars. You then pulled up next to us and yelled so many expletives that I actually learned a few new ones. The best part was when you called me a “stupid white boy” and said I should go back to where I came from. Newsflash genius: I was born and raised on Maui. What a great example you showed your kids, who I couldn’t help but notice were with you in the car. You need some serious help, but frankly I’m more concerned for them. What a crappy childhood they must have with you raising them.

One Saturday a few weeks ago, my four keikis and I played too late at Kam III Beach. By the time we tried to cross the road, it was nearly dark—way too dark for drivers to see a tattered mom trying to herd four sleepy kids across a crazy road. Just when it looked like we’d have to either camp out or hike to the nearest stoplight way up the road, you jogged along and then dashed halfway across the street. “Lucky jogger,” I thought, “he can just zip through the cars without worrying about keeping any kids in one piece.” Then you paused, held up your arms to alert the oncoming traffic to stop, and then waited while the kids and I trotted across the road. Then you ran back to the beach side of the street without saying a word and continued your jog. In the grand scheme of our busy world, it may have seemed like a small, insignificant gesture, but to us it was a real kindness and it made a real impact on four very impressionable little boys.

Just wanted to thank the jackass who keyed my truck in the parking lot of Sack-N-Save. I so hope you get

admitted that my door was only open about six inches. Never did find out what you were you doing barrelin’ down the road at 2:30 in the morning. And I used to wonder why the police let you go as soon as they arrived and never even gave you a breath test. Then I saw the accident report. In fact, the officer threatened me with a DUI test, and proceeded to write a ticket for not carrying proof of insurance. In fact, I couldn’t find the insurance card until dawn because you hit us so hard the card flew out of the glove box and landed under the seat. I could have died that night, but that wasn’t enough: you still saw fit to slander us, calling us crazy and unstable and claiming that you felt threatened. And yes, I still remember the way I felt when I looked at the accident report, and saw who I was up against. This is to all the people who use Ohukai Road in Kihei as a raceway. Especially you! You know who you are. I am sick and tired of your loud, freaking truck racing up and down our street at all hours. What are you, an Ice dealer? We know you can’t drive, either, because you smashed your front end twice in the last six months. What an idiot you are. Hopefully no one got injured by one of your Ice rages. Please take your lame act back to the Mainland or take yourself out of the gene pool, future Darwin Award winner!


This goes out to the owner of the big ass Chevy diesel truck in Kihei who insists on forcing the entire neighborhood to listen to your overpowered sound system every Sunday morning. First of all, why do you let your annoying diesel engine run while you play your dumb ass rap crap? Second, don’t you have respect for your neighbors? Some of us like sleeping in, jerk! Maybe it’s time for you to move or sell your truck (I guess you bought it because of your undersized brain and penis). So please turn off that rap crap and move to Hicksville. On Sunday mornings, we like it quiet in our neighborhood. To the driver of the white sod truck that pulled onto Hana Highway in Haiku at 7:30 a.m. without bothering to see if he was cutting anyone off: I just wanted to let know that I had to slam on my brakes to avoid hitting you and possibly injuring you and your passenger. Please thank your lucky star that I (1) have very quick reaction time, due to my tai chi practice and nonuse of substances; (2) was not eating or talking on my cell phone; and (3) recently had my brakes checked and had new tires installed. It appears that you were unclear as to who had the right of way. Guess what? It wasn’t you. See, there was a Yield sign at your intersection, which means you have to allow traffic in the main artery to pass

before you enter. Next time, wait! You were amazing, sistah. Here you were, driving with a cigarette in one hand, a cell-phone in the other, steering with one forearm while hunched over and yakking away. You go to some kind of school to learn skills like that? I took Driver’s Ed in high school, but they never taught us how to do what you were doing. Really, who needs drunk drivers when you’re on the road? Mahalo, pea brains at the DMV! Last week I was trying to help my Kula friend return to the world after a nearly three-month stay in Maui Memorial, so we went over to the Pukulani Satellite DMV office to get a disabled placard for his car. Oh, bradda! Your hours, clearly posted on front door, said the office was open until “10:45 a.m.” So we got there, relieved to see we were just in time—10:38 a.m. cell-phone time (linked to a big atomic clock somewhere). But the instant you saw me (a big white boy), you—a government employee paid by my tax money—jumped out of your chair like a spider bit you on the ass and ran over to lock the front door. When I tried the door, you yelled that you were closed. “Na, you go away,” you said. “We close lunch.” So then I pleaded if you could just answer a quick question. “Na, you no listen,” you said. “We close lunch. Go away.” Meanwhile, my friend just waited in his car. Thanks.

I am a local woman with all the Aloha Spirit in the world, but it’s hard to keep it when you have tourists acting as if they are gods here. Not long ago I was driving down Front Street and a big fat-ass tourist woman and her kids were walking accross the road. So I politely yelled, “Use a crosswalk next time and it would be safer to cross” and proceeded to go about my business. Then I pulled in to the gas station across from Safeway. That’s when you pulled in behind me and started screaming, “That’s that fuckin’ crosswalk bitch!” Being that I’m a local I spun my car around to find out what such a fat cow was yelling at, only to find that you were yelling at me. “If you’re in Hawai‘i, learn the Hawaiian way,” I told you. Didn’t it bother you that as you were cursing me, there were small children in your car? It certainly bothered me, which is why I yelled, “Good example for your children.” So then your husband jumped out and started telling me to shut up. That’s when I lost it. “Fuckin’ dumbass tourists!” I yelled. “Spend your money and go home.” Now I’m mad. What the hell do I do? I’m just trying to keep it nice, keep the Aloha Spirit, but it was just too much. So please, if you’re new to Hawai‘i, please look out for your children, look out for people around you, and please, please, don’t be stupid. This one goes out to the braddah who shined his brights on me and followed me one night, then whacked my car and called me out. Brah, I just wanted to say I was fully in the wrong and would have done the same thing if I was in your place. I hope the next time we meet that it will be on the beach watching the sunset with an icy cold beverage. I apologize for my piss-poor behavior—no matter how bad a day I was having, it did not excuse my Mainland attitude. I just want to let you know that it weighs heavily on my conscience when I think how I could have acted differently. I know that this island is preserved by family integrity and not reckless egocentric agendas. I had forgotten that, and I am sorry.

The Oxtail Min

Nazo’s Restaurant 1063 L. Main St., Wailuku, 244-0529. $

My diet usually consists of cruelty-free mushrooms and free-range lettuce. But there are dark times when a carnal lust unravels deep within my hypothalamus. During these moments, there’s just one thing that can placate it: meat. Specifically, the oxtail min at Nazo’s Restaurant in Wailuku. Nazo’s is perched on the type of hill that would make a stick shift flaccid. Since I’ve got an aversion to flaccidity in all its forms, I usually park beneath the restaurant. The environment there is dark, and when you walk inside, you almost expect to smell cigarettes and see a worn-out detective nursing a glass of scotch. It’s a small, cozy establishment; the seating capacity is a mere 40 people. The walls are painted as though a bottle of mustard exploded nearby, and the booth seats have been known to eat keys. This is definitely not the place to have an acid trip, but it is a very good place to eat. I’m assuming that since their oxtail soup carries the title of “World Famous,” it’s the most popular dish on the menu. Even if the descriptor is a bit dramatic, there’s no question that people everywhere should familiarize themselves with the soup. The meat is tender and the broth holds a medley of green onions, bamboo shoots, mushrooms and, strangely enough, peanuts. As long as you avoid thinking about where you find the tail on an ox, the soup is uncom-

monly delicious. In any case, the soup comes with macaroni salad and your choice of rice or mashed potatoes. I love the soup, but my favorite dish is the oxtail min. It’s really quite simple: think oxtail soup, minus the rice and macaroni salad, with a tangle of noodles floating around in the broth. To be honest, I can’t recall ordering anything at Nazo’s but the oxtail min. Well, I did have a few flings with the aforementioned soup, as well as a bowl or two of saimin and miso min (Nazo’s offers a wide assortment of authentic local cuisine as well), but when it came right down to it, they really didn’t mean anything to me. They’re great items, don’t get me wrong, but what’s the point of ordering something other than the house special? Or in my case, the house special with noodles? MTW

Words of Wisdom Thursday (Aug 9), 7:30 p.m. at the Castle Theater, Maui Arts and Cultural Center [MUSIC] Legendary singer, songwriter and guitarist Stephen Stills is famous for a lot of very good reasons. He was a core member of the blues and rock group Buffalo Springfield before he helped form the super-group Crosby, Stills & Nash (and Young). He was twice inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997, making Hall history. And he ranked high on Rolling Stone’s list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” He was also buddies with Jimi Hendrix, which is just cool. But if I had to single out my personal favorite reason why Stephen Stills rocks, it would be for his words of undeniable wisdom: “If you can’t be with the one you love, honey, love the one you’re with.” I’m sure this simple line has consoled countless starcrossed lovers and bored, desperate housewives since it was first uttered. Stills has clearly earned his bragging rights and now he’s bringing re-mastered classics and brand new material with him to wow the Maui crowd. Tickets: $45, $35. For info call MACC, 242-7469.

Friday to Sunday (Aug. 10-12), 6 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. on Sat, Sun, War Memorial Gymnasium [FESTIVAL] There’s a whole lot of shaking going on, but not the kind that makes you tune into the tsunami watch or bang on your apartment ceiling to remind the neighbors that the walls are really thin. It’s the 10th Annual Tahitian Festival, taking place at War Memorial Gym. You’ll be treated to traditional dance and drumming, all done by gorgeous, exquisitely dressed performers.

[EVENT] And by naked I don’t mean “in the nude.” Estatic Deeksha Dancing is all about getting your consciousness to a higher level and freeing yourself from all the crap that you have going on. So it’s more like naked soul dancing, but with feet and body moves. Just imagine how fricking awesome your “drop pop and lock” will be once you rid yourself of negative energy. Bliss, dude–pure, unadulterated bliss. Namaste. I do recognize the spirit within you and it’s foxy, baby. Free. For more information call: 575-9390.

Your Car is Cherry Saturday (Aug. 11), 1-9 p.m. at the War Memorial Stadium, Kahului [AUTOFEST] “We like the cars, the cars that go BOOM.

It’s Maui’s largest custom vehicle event. This ain’t your grandpa’s car show. There will be tons of giveaways, prizes, girls and of course a sound-off competition.

DAY

Makena Time! (maybe) Wednesday (Aug. 15) at 1:30 p.m. in the Maui County Council Chambers [PUBLIC HEARING] The immense build-out of South Maui continues. Two weeks ago, the County Council Land Use Committee began thrashing around Wailea 670 and its 1,400 proposed homes. Now the committee’s Aug. 15 agenda wasn’t released by press time, but it’s likely they will start looking at the Makena Resort expansion, which will include 1,100 new luxury units. The Wailea 670 Environmental Impact Statement dated to 1988, but Makena’s is ancient by comparison—the sucker was written back in 1974, when Nixon was still in office! Making matters a little more interesting, superdeveloper Everett Dowling is now one of Makena Resort’s owners, and he usually gets his way. Should be a good meeting, but to be safe call 270-7838 to confirm Makena’s on the agenda. The Council Chambers are located on the 8th floor of the Kalana O Maui Building, 200 S. High St. in Wailuku.

FILMCRITIQUE

BY COLE SMITHEY COLE@MAUITIME.COM

Final Hour Chan and Tucker go out with a whimper In their third and ostensibly last outing together, Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker go through the motions of energizing the Rush Hour franchise, albeit with less physical action and much less apparent joy. Director Brett Ratner also returns following the first two Rush Hour installments that began in 1998 when Jackie Chan still possessed the youthful vigor to execute eyepopping stunts, and Chris Tucker was enough of a soprano-voiced anomaly to induce involuntary laughs whenever he opened his mouth.

Rush Hour 3

★★★★★ Rated PG-13/91 min.

It’s been six years since Rush Hour 2, and police officer Carter (Tucker) has been demoted to traffic cop, a job he treats with such dance-move-irreverence that car flow around his designated intersection doesn’t stand a chance. Agent Lee (Chan) is busy acting as bodyguard to Chinese Ambassador Han (Tzi Ma) who suffers an assassination attempt while giving a speech before the World Criminal Court in Los Angeles where he was about to name the leader of an international crime ring. A foot chase across a busy highway puts Lee in striking range of the hit man, but he’s unable to shoot when he discovers that it is his “brother” Kenji (Hiroyuki Sanada), now aligned with the Triad crime gang working in Paris, France where Lee and Carter will soon follow. The duo receive a rubber-gloved welcome to the Gallic country by its chief police inspector (well played in an uncredited cameo by Roman Polanski), and sustain a stream of insults toward America from

A case of mistaken ethnicities? their opinionated taxi driver George (Yvan Attal). But George changes his editorial tune after Lee appoints him “super spy” in order to escape a crew of Triad motorcyclists that knock the doors off the taxi in their hot pursuit. It’s the movie’s first major chase scene and although Ratner ramps up the stunts–a cyclist flies through the

back of a truck and out of its front window–he doesn’t push the action to the degree that modern audiences have come to expect from watching films like The Transporter. The series’ formula of carefully layered slapstick gags, mixed with Jackie Chan’s inimitable martial arts prowess, hits a high point during a snappy parlor room battle between Lee and gambling-club owner Jasmine (Youki Kudoh), a dragon lady with a spike-filled fan that she throws with blinding accuracy. Carter enthusiastically listens outside the door, thinking that the shouts and grunts emanating from inside are the effect of Lee’s love making efforts. The scene is the closest the movie comes to achieving a Pink Panther brand of humor that the Rush Hour films identify with. But even here, the screenwriter and director squander an opportunity to infuse the sequence with personality. If Lee and Jasmine had some ongoing scintillating dialogue, we could have gotten a more satisfying sense of their characters during their battle-as-sex contest. As with the first two movies, the third act climax is where the most sustained action is, and regardless of the flagging chemistry between Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker, it’s a payoff that works better than it has a right to. The Jules Verne restaurant atop the Eiffel Tower is the setting for a grand nighttime showdown that takes the action out onto the tower’s exposed support beams. The extended acrobatic battle gains visual momentum for the ingenious photography and CGI that believably place our heroes high above Paris on its most iconic structure. There’s no denying that the producers waited too many years before making the final installment. It’s too late in Chan’s remarkable career for the martial arts master to perform the kind of stunts that his fans expect. As a gifted physical comedian, there’s hope that the actor will find a new cinematic path to fulfill his talents. But Tucker’s limited comedic range seems to have a more difficult transition ahead because he has remained too reliant on the Rush Hour franchise for his bread and butter. MTW

BY SAMANTHA CAMPOS SAM@MAUITIME.COM

Nacho the Mariachi Bringing a little bit of Mexico to Maui It’s early one Saturday evening. There are a just a few people scattered throughout the coffee shop. A young woman frantically taps the keys on her laptop as an older couple chats with their granddaughter. A few moments later, a family visiting from Canada orders ice cream. Then a petite man makes his way to the tiny stage in front of the window. He sits on the stool, picks up his guitar and starts strumming. When he’s done tuning, he looks out at the small crowd and smiles.

“What you like to hear?” he says in a thick Spanish accent. “Sad song? Mariachi song? Romantic song? Rock and roll?”

Nacho the Mariachi Mon.-Sat., 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Hawaiian Village Coffee, 4405 Honoapi`ilani Hwy, Kahana, 665-1114. The older couple suggests something romantic. And when the man begins singing “Besame Mucho,” everybody in the café stops what they’re doing and looks up. Ignacio Cardenas was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. His mom and dad sang in duets throughout the country. His brother was a composer, who wrote lots of well-known songs in Mexico, including one recorded by the band Machos. Nacho began singing publicly at age six, and learned how to play guitar when he was nine. He recorded his first album at 12.

MAUI TIME WEEKLY

Nacho was one of five young performers in the Mexican pop group Los Picoliños. They toured Mexico and Baja California, along with two teachers for voice and guitar, and enjoyed much success. But as the two girls in the band grew up and got married, the group disbanded. At age 17, Nacho went solo, touring the country, including bullfighting rings like Mexico City’s famous Plaza de Toros, where his audience sometimes topped 15,000. Once, he sang with the acclaimed Mexican actor/singer Antonio Aguilar—the only Hispanic performer to sell out Madison Square Garden in New York for six consecutive nights. The popular music at that time in Jalisco was “mariachi”—a celebratory music of the country that incorporated Spanish, African, folk, jazz, pop and even polka. Consequently, Nacho’s repertoire spans widely. He insists he has a song for every occasion. All the songs he sings are his favorite, he says through an interpreter. He does-

n’t prefer one genre over the other; he loves them all. “They are like my children,” he says. Whether it’s sad or romantic, a dance song or one about drinking, Nacho tries to interpret each so his particular audience that night will enjoy it. He says the children like the funny songs, where he sometimes makes effective donkey sounds. The young people like the upbeat songs like “La Bamba” and rock and roll. The older crowd enjoys the classics like “Vaya Con Dios” or “La Cucaracha”—“the songs of my parents,” he says. And his vocal range is impressive, often drawing audible gasps and clapping from the crowd mid-tune. “Since I was a boy and singing,” Nacho says, “I practiced and practiced.” He’s also composed some songs, and has recorded three CDs—possibly more, he can’t quite recall—and locally won a Best Latin Music competition for his CD, Amor Amor Amor. He’s been on Maui for nearly 13 years, and has six kids. “My family has been moving here little by little,” he says. “One son got married, moved here… then another one came. Then I said I might as well come.” Although Nacho is older now, and his health somewhat frail—he can’t see or hear well, and makes routine visits for kidney dialysis—he still does free performances six nights a week at Hawaiian Village Coffee in Kahana. He says it makes him very happy to see people enjoying his singing—if they didn’t, it would make him very sad. Then he picks up his guitar again, squints his eyes and smiles out at the small crowd. “What you like to hear? Mariachi song? Romantic song? Funny song? Flamenco? Song de Cuba?” MTW

CAERIEL CRESTIN SIGN.LANGUAGE.ASTROLOGY@GMAIL.COM

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) Sometimes it’s best to really clean up a mess. Occasionally, however, it works to simply shove it all in a closet, wedge the door shut, and forget about it for a while. It depends on what kind of mess it is, and how much time you have. This applies to emotional disasters as well as physical ones. As you contemplate the muddle before you, ask yourself these questions: Will this mess get worse if I just shove it out of sight, like toxic waste seeping into the local groundwater? Will it take even more time to clean up later than it would right now? Once you know these things, you can more accurately decide what to do with the disarray in front of you, and when.

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) A typical Virgo can go from full-speed to deep sleep in about 48 seconds. It’s charming and astonishing how you hold nothing back, but it’s also unhealthy. Evolved Virgos eventually learn to monitor their energy more accurately, and keep some in reserve for life’s frequent surprises. Because the next two months are likely to be rife with these, I suggest you learn how to hold just a little bit back. Go to bed an hour before you pass out, for example. Save something, because if you’re running on empty when something unexpected happens, someone else will have to pick up your slack, and both of you, consequently, will suffer.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) Sometimes, when I’m playing with my dog, I only pretend to throw the ball. Sweetly trusting, he goes searching for it anyway. Lately you remind me of him, Libra. I don’t mean to be insulting. I know your gullibility comes of a charming willingness to trust, which I hope you never lose. However, there are times when your openness doesn’t serve you well. I hope you keep giving most people the benefit of the doubt; I also hope, however, that you learn when to (occasionally) wait until someone proves themselves before you roll over and show them your belly.

SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) While your astrological neighbors, those Libras, sometimes make the mistake of being too quick to trust, open up, and become attached to people, you have the opposite problem; you’re frequently too slow to give someone a chance. How many fish have slipped from your line because you didn’t realize until too late that you actually wanted to reel them in and take them home? Is the person you’re stringing along now one of those? I’m not entirely on their side; they did, after all, swim up to your bait and take a bite, of their own accord. However, I reckon you ought to develop a little more sympathy for them, and just make up your mind, one way or the other: Either drag them into your boat to devour (or marry) them, or simply let them go.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) You’re generally exceptionally good at seeing the big picture. You’re so good, in fact, that you occasionally make the mistake of thinking you always see it, when that’s not actually the case. What you’re seeing right now, for instance, is actually just a fraction of the whole thing. You might as well be in a cave, with only a flashlight to reveal where you are. It only illuminates a circle of space at a time, so most of your surroundings are out of view. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that that one bright circle is all there is, because, chances are, the most important things you need to know are hidden in what you can’t see.

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) Usually you prioritize well, getting the most important stuff out of the way first before you tackle all the little shit that’s also on your list. That list, however, has gotten a bit bottom-heavy, with so much nitpicky annoying little crap that you couldn’t possibly give your main tasks the energy and attention they deserve. Turn your priority list upside down, and exercise that famous efficiency, Cap. Get all your supposedly less important duties out of the way first, and work your way up to the most vital tasks on your agenda, so that by the time you get to them, they’re the only things you have left to do.

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) Don’t get frustrated when the universe conspires to trip you up this week. All the obstacles in your path aren’t designed to stop you, or make you give up. Take them in stride, and let them delay you. You might need a little time to reflect on the path you’re taking. I have a feeling it’s mostly right, but some slight detours might be a good idea, for your own happiness, and postponing your arrival at your supposed destination will benefit not only you, but everyone involved.

PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) I’ve worked at a few summer camps, and noticed that frequently when children lose something, they jump to the same conclusion: someone stole it. Nine times out of 10, the missing item turns back up. These kids rarely apologize to the accused for their wrongful allegations. You, too, may have recently leapt to an incorrect assumption (only you’re much more likely to erroneously blame yourself for something that’s someone else’s fault). When your mistake is eventually revealed, be more forthright and honorable than those lazy, accusatory children: Own up to your error, and apologize for it (even, especially, to yourself).

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Making a habit out of apologizing is never a good idea, especially for an Aries. On the other hand, being unable to croak out an occasional, “I’m sorry,” is even worse. Let’s face it: you screwed up. It’s not the first or worst time, nor will it be the last or least. Not owning up to what you did would just be digging yourself a big hole to get buried in. The solution, of course, is obvious, so what are you waiting for? The hole’s just getting deeper, darker, and more maggoty. Go say you’re sorry, already.

TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) Stop setting yourself up for disappointment—enough of that and you’ll soon be bitter. Fantasizing about a hot bubble bath while camping is like wishing for snow in summer and intelligent coverage of relevant world events on the evening news. Don’t put yourself in that position, especially when there are plenty of things to enjoy about reality as it is. You’ve always had this fascination with the unattainable, but it’s about time you mostly outgrew it, since it’s on the verge of making you entirely miserable. Get over wanting what you can’t and start aiming for things you can have, right now.

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) The worst thing about getting robbed, for most people, is the sense of violation you experience, not necessarily the loss of your stuff. Losing trust in humanity sucks ass. Unfortunately, getting over that shit, whether the mugger stole your computer, your virginity, or your lover, isn’t easy. But it is simple—as simple as deciding to trust people again, despite what’s happened to you. No one will really be able to prove to you that they deserve your trust, after your shitty experience, so you just have to decide to give it to them anyway. Either that, or the thieves managed to make off with more than your laptop.

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Remember your own power. Instead of holding other people accountable for your happiness or misery, recall that you actually hold complete sovereignty over your own heart. It may feel like someone else has power over it, but they don’t, unless you let them. It’s a beautiful thing to be so vulnerable to someone else, but there are limits. Heed them. Keep one thing you love just for you, that’s just yours and always will be, no matter what happens. It’s not much, but I reckon it will be enough. Then you’ll have that to hold onto, even if everything else is ruined or taken away.

Nothin’ but a Hoochie, Mama

Sweet Life Fruit Co.

For the longest time I’ve been dying to ask this question, and now I have the chance: why do you dress your little wahine like a ho-bag? Yeah, I’m talking to you—the parent (presumably the Mother) who thinks platform slippers are a great idea for the playground; kitten-heels on a preschooler is cute; and spandex daisy dukes with neon lacing up the sides will help your first-grader make new “friends.” Oh, you’re out there, because I’ve seen you. In case you’ve put zero thought into your child’s wardrobe, let me fill you in on a little something: children’s attire should be practical, comfy and preferably flame-retardant. Kids—little kids—don’t need a duplicate outfit of what you wore to the club over the weekend. You were trying to get laid—your baby girl, I’m thinking not. Sure, there are some of us that are of the mindset that children aren’t supposed to be viewed as sexual creatures. Unfortunately, after taking a good long look across the island, it seems that we are the minority. You’re not saying your little girl is a sexual creature? Hmm. I’m sorry, I just assumed that’s what you meant by the crop top, mini-skirt and patent leather heels you have her decked out in. My bad. Speaking of crop tops, let’s talk about Tahitian dancing–a topic that’s long interested me. I want you to hear the tribal drumming, the swishing of the dancer’s skirt. Watch them coconuts... Now she’s shaking her ass at warp speed. Oh, wait! My favorite part! She’s dropping it down low, low, lower—all the while stirring her ass around in little circles. Hot, huh? Actually, she’s five. This is Maui, and our kids dance Tahitian. Okay, well, mine doesn’t. But yours does. I’ve watched a Tahitian dance class here on Maui, and it left me feeling icky. The mix of kids as young as three to women in their 40’s all learning the same moves just didn’t make any sense to me. And then there’s you parents sitting in the background. Do you enjoy watching your kindergartner pelvic thrust? Let me guess: it’s cultural. Frankly, the “it’s cultural” thing is a dumb argument. I’ve heard it all my life, and I was born and raised here. In truth, lots of practices–questionable and otherwise–are cultural: belly-dancing, circumcision, tattooing, frying-balls off peyote and scalping your enemies for example. Then again, if you’re Tahitian for real, (a mix of Filipino, Chinese, Korean, Hawaiian and haole doesn’t count) and you want your toddler to celebrate your culture through dance, I urge you to do a little research. At what age did your ancestors invite young women to dance? Was it a “coming of age” initiation? Did the young children dance to the same type of songs, with the same type of movements as the adults? In reporting the seventh annual Te Mahana Hiro‘a o Tahiti children’s Tahitian dance competition on July 7, the Polynesian Cultural Center reported the following on its website: “‘Are these five and six-year-olds?’ PCC [Polynesian Cultural Center] emcee Cy Bridges asked during that [keiki] category in finals competition. ‘I saw some 18year-old moves there.’ Later, he asked, ‘Do you think they have the same energy at home when they’re cleaning their room or the yard?’ The audience laughed.” Wake up, folks. If you continue to dress your daughter in adult clothes that are designed to attract sexual attention, and keep enrolling her in activities that teach her to use her body for provocative messages, what do you think you’re saying to her? When your kid is no longer an innocent little girl, but a young woman who can make her own decisions, is she going to live life as a person raised to use their heart and head to achieve things, or as a woman who chooses to manipulate situations through her body and the laws of physical attraction? How does the cliché go? Oh yes: These kids are our future. Personally, I don’t want a future filled with more bitchy skanks who raise bitchy skanks. Starr Begley—who admittedly is kind of a bitchy skank herself—still thinks your daughter looks ridiculous. MTW
