More Free Advice! Ask a National Headache Foundation Press Release Dear National Headache Foundation Press Release, Lately I’ve found life to be an insufferable bore. All the zest has gone from my life. All I do every day is just sit around the house in my underwear drinking beer and watching Jerry Springer and Hawaii 5-o reruns. My wife thinks I should just go out and get a job, but I think she’s nuts. Any ideas? -Wondering in Walla Walla Dear Wondering, CHICAGO, IL—With the beginning of the school year upon us, many parents are focusing on the education of their children, but along with thinking about academics, parents should be aware that their child might experience headaches as a result of resuming the school year. Nearly 30 percent of children miss school or other activities because of headaches according to an online survey conducted by the National Headache Foundation (NHF). Sixty-five percent of survey respondents stated that stress is a headache trigger and 56 percent of children with headaches feel pressure to receive good grades. Dear National Headache Foundation Press Release, Hey, what do you think of using MySpace to track down and possibly stalk ex-girlfriends? I think it’s a totally great idea with absolutely no downside, but my parole officer is less optimistic. Do you know of any controlling legal authority on this? -Desperate in Denver

Dear Desperate, For children, the start of school can be a time of both anticipation and anxiety. Facing new teachers, friends and classes along with changes in daily routine can be common triggers of migraine and tension-type headaches. Thirty-five percent of those completing the survey said there was pressure to fit in with peers. Unfortunately, young children are often unable to effectively communicate their symptoms, making it difficult for parents to recognize a recurring problem. According to the NHF survey, 56 percent of child sufferers experienced their first headache before age 10. Dear National Headache Foundation Press Release,

Treatment options also pose a challenge for young headache sufferers upon their return to school. The NHF survey found that 82 percent of affected children take over-the-counter medications; however, many schools have adopted zero-tolerance policies with regard to bringing these types of drugs to school. Parents should review the school’s policy to determine what is permitted and also make sure that every teacher, the school nurse and administrators are informed about the child’s headache condition.

A while ago you helped me out of a very abusive relationship. It was about three in the morning and I had just jumped out of my boyfriend’s car. He chased me to a lot in Kahului and started to beat on me. I remember being hit and crying and screaming when all of a sudden you came out of nowhere and said, “Is everything okay here?” I will never forget those words. I think I told you to run or something stupid like that. That’s when my abusive boyfriend turned his attention on you. I guess you knew martial arts or something because I remember a punch being thrown and then you flipping into some weird thing that might’ve been used in a UFC fight. You ended up pinning my boyfriend to the ground with his arm between his legs, then you fumbled for your cell phone to call the cops. Anyway, after watching a special on the news a while back about how abusive relationships usually ended in death, it hit me how close I came to dying. I just wanted to let you know that, thanks to you, I’m now in college and working to better myself instead of just sitting around and doing nothing. My life is much better thanks to you. I just want to say thanks.






Lucienne de Naie statement. I am not against it, but it needs close scrutiny because it is such a new technology. Substance needs to replace the hype.

George W. Bush? I didn’t vote for him! I hate to criticize, because it isn’t easy being President, but he was and is simply not prepared.

MAUI TIME WEEKLY: Why have you decided to run now after all these years of activism on Maui?


LUCIENNE DE NAIE: I have been begged for six years now to run for office, and I realized I’m not getting any younger. Right now, I feel like this is the time in my life to run because I am getting much support and it takes a team to get someone elected.

Tourism needs to reevaluate its position in our economy. It’s scary, but Maui is the most dependent of all the Hawaiian Islands, even more than Oahu, on tourism. It’s the big chief on the island, but it’s not healthy. We need to diversify our economy, but to do that we need better education and housing. We cannot bring technology here without those.

Why should people vote for you? I have the most actual ground experience of the candidates. I have met with the mayor on a regular basis to discuss issues, and I meet with state and even federal officials to discuss problems and come up with solutions on all levels. I have come up with solutions to problems such as restoring water to the streams, and these dreams have become reality, if not close.

LC Watch Risks

I don’t know why anyone in Maui County would want a license to sell alcohol. The risks of getting involved in investigations, hearings, legal bills, fines, as well as possible suspensions and revocations are just too high to comprehend. In the County of Maui, a liquor license holder can get the shaft for serving as little as a single drink to a customer who happens to be intoxicated. This customer may be drunk but not sway like a flag or slur his speech like a stroke victim; he may be hammered




noble effort for good Hawaiian programs to continue, but I am not sure this bill was the only solution. There was not an answer for every question against it. I wish we could all just come together and care for the Hawaiian land. But there does need to be a way for native Hawaiians to get their fair share of land. How about the Superferry? We have not been given adequate information about it. I was one of the first to request an environmental

but not act belligerent or emotional; he may be a threat to innocent people on the roads but not behave any differently than someone who’s sober. Three out of the four establishments listed on the Sept. 7, 2006 Liquor Control Adjudication Board agenda are accused of serving drunks. Two of the three, Maui Brewing Company in Kahana and Club Diane in Kahului, are pleading no contest. The third, South Shore Tiki Lounge in Kihei, insists it’s not guilty and wants a full hearing. Short of stuffing a breathalyzer into every customer’s mouth upon entry to a bar, restaurant or convenience store, there’s no way to tell with any scientific, verifiable, repeatable accuracy whether the person who wants to buy booze has

What is the most difficult thing that has happened to you? Taking care of my parents during the last several years of their lives. It was very lonely, and it was tough making the right decisions. What made you fall in love with Hawai`i? I first visited here from LA area when I was 22, and I just loved everything… how the people interacted, the language. It just always felt like home. I never felt like a tourist. MTW

already had too much. You can go to classes and read guidebooks and learn to spot watery, bloodshot eyes all you want—some people just don’t look drunk when they are, and they’re the ones that should scare the hell out of every license holder in the county. I suppose there are risks in every venture: crime, weather, market forces and political climates could all make life bad for business. Still, there are protections every business owner can take to alleviate such risks. But where drunk, completely irrational human beings are concerned, each one a potential runaway torpedo, ready to blow the establishment apart, why bother?

It may have been nearly 65 years since bombs have fallen on Hawai`i, but that doesn’t mean a company like Tesoro Hawai`i can’t make a few bucks off war. That’s right: Tesoro’s two oil refineries in the state will soon be turning out precious, precious jet fuel for the U.S. Army. Now on the great scale of war contracts this is pretty low—just $6.03 million—but there were six bids vying for the honor of supplying the army with fuel for helicopters and… well, I guess just their helicopters. And good ol’ MECO drops a couple notches on news last week that “seized pistons” at their main power generator blacked out West Maui and Upcountry for 90 minutes. For shame… MTW

There are right now, according to a new survey by Wai`anae Community Outreach, about 850 homeless people living in that troubled region. “Considering a population of the Wai`anae Coast, which is a little under 50,000, to have somewhat close to 800 or so homeless, that’s a pretty high density,” survey coordinator Michael Ullman is quoted as saying in the Aug. 31, 2006 Honolulu Advertiser. “It’s probably one of the higher densities certainly in Hawai`i and probably in the country.” If this is what happens when the Lingle Administration tries to eliminate homelessness, it’s fair to ask what would happen if they just ignored the problem entirely.

MAUICOUNTY WEDNESDAY, Aug. 30 Looks like no county ballot measures this year. The Maui News is reporting today that voters won’t get to see either the COMET proposal that would revamp the way the county collects property taxes or the initiative that would legalize medicinal marijuana on any 2006 ballot. Stop me if you’ve heard this before: initiative organizers couldn’t gather the requisite signatures needed to put the measures before the voters. It’s that old 20 percent rule. In the case of COMET, which was a county charter amendment, organizers needed to get the signatures of at least 15,298 registered voters—roughly 20 percent of the county’s registered voters in the last general election. According to the News, they came close—to within 9,000 signatures! But in the case of Maui County Citizens for Democracy in Action’s “Legalize It” measure, which would just change the County Code, the group needed just 8,301 signatures— roughly 20 percent of those who voted in the last mayoral election. They apparently came closer, with about 7,000 signatures. In other words, more pissed off stoners and stoner wannabees than pissed off property owners were willing to take a stand and sign their name to a petition. That, my friends, is Maui.

THURSDAY, Aug. 31 Couple interesting things about the Sierra Club Hawai`i candidate endorsements that came out today. Mostly, that the venerated environmental organization refused to endorse anyone in the Daniel Akaka/Ed Case U.S. Senate Campaign. According to Lance Holter, the club’s Hawai`i chapter political chairman, it’s because the executive committee could never muster a majority vote for Akaka because of his votes to allow oil drilling in the Alaskan National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) or for Case because of his pro-Iraq War views and votes. “If you take ANWR away from Akaka, he’s

stellar,” Holter told me. “If you take the war away from Case, he’s stellar. But we wanted a candidate who’s a clear-cut leader on the environment.” The club bit the bullet and agrered to endorse the primary winner. Over in the Second District Congressional campaign, the Sierra Club had the opposite problem. There an embarrassment of riches led the group to endorse two Democratic candidates—State Senator Gary Hooser from Kauai and State Representative Brian Schatz. Indeed, Holter said the committee toyed with the idea of including former Lt. Governor Mazie Hirono and private attorney Matt Matsunaga in a four-way endorsement, but eventually decided that was going a bit too far.

...a blend of Swedish, Shiatsu & Lomi Lomi

TUESDAY, Sept. 5 I get a kick out of kicking Ed Case because of his ridiculous support for fighting in Iraq—after three years, it must be obvious even to a Washington insider like him that the mere application of greater force to the Iraqi insurgency hasn’t done a damn thing to stop it—but he’s right about one thing: he’s got a better pro-citizen voting record than Daniel Akaka. And that’s not my opinion, either—it comes from the Washingtonbased non-profit organization Public Citizen, which was formed by longtime consumer advocate and leftist agitator Ralph Nader to push a pro-citizen, anti-corporate agenda in Washington. Anyway, according to a record of more than two dozen bills posted on the group’s website (, Case voted for the interests of working people over Corporate America 84 percent in the most recent congressional term: he voted for windfall profits taxes on Big Oil; against liability shields for drug makers; against limiting patients rights to sue for malpractice; against repealing the estate tax; and, of course, against drilling for oil in the Arctic. Akaka? Public Citizen rated him at just 74 percent.


FRIDAY, Sept. 1 So the Honolulu Advertiser’s reporting that the political science heavyweights on Oahu are saying Case bested Akaka in last nights big televised debate on PBS Hawai`i over which man is the better Democrat to run for the U.S. Senate in November. “I thought that the senator obviously looked halting and was very dependent on his notes,” University of Hawai`i—West Oahu history professor Dan Boylan said in this morning’s Advertiser. “As a debater, as someone standing up and taking questions, Ed Case was much better, much stronger and left a much stronger impression.” Now keep in mind that Boylan is also a columnist for the Advertiser-owned publication Midweek, and he’s one of just two “political analysts” quoted in today’s story saying Case took the debate. But let’s assume for the moment that they’re right and Case really did show up the 81-year old Akaka and present his views better: he got across to the audience that he wants to stay the course in Iraq—presumably, as Generalissimo George W. Bush has said, until a peaceful Iraqi democracy can defend itself against the hordes of “evil-doers” preying on it; he feels Senator Akaka is too old and powerless to lead the state into the future; Case is a moderate whereas Akaka is too liberal. And so it goes—in fact, it’s all exactly what Case has been saying since he first started campaigning. I’m so glad we all had to suffer

Boutique wigmaker Ruth Regina of Miami is readying a line of hairpieces for “teacup” dogs and other overpampered canines, at prices that range into the hundreds of dollars. Most promising include the “Yappy Hour” (a fluff of curls) and the “Peek a Bow Wow,” which according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel in August “fall[s] down over part of a dog’s face, giving a glamorous look reminiscent of 1940s movie star Veronica Lake.” It’s for dogs that feel sexy, said Regina. “There [are] some dogs that have the come-hither look.”

Four New York City police were called to an apartment house in July in the Bronx concerning a landlord-tenant dispute, but were distracted by a teenager in the hallway smoking marijuana and started to chase him, when a pit bull attacked the officers. The toll, 26 bullets later: one dead dog, one bitten officer, three other officers wounded by each other’s gunshots.

GREAT ART! Inmate Donny Johnson, serving three life terms in solitary confinement at the Pelican Bay State Prison in California, was the beneficiary of a showing of his acclaimed paintings at a gallery in the Mexican tourist village of San Miguel de Allende, according to a July New York Times report. Because of Johnson’s isolation, his only “brush” is made from strands of his own hair; his “canvases” consist of blank postcards; and his medium is colors from decomposed M&M candies. Nonetheless, at least six of the paintings, which the Times reporter called “powerful,” have sold for $500 each.

ARE WE SAFE? Undercover investigators for the Government Accountability Office reported in July that they were able to purchase, on the open market from Pentagon contractors, surplus body armor, mounts for shoulderfired missiles, and missile radar test devices. And Indiana state homeland security officials told Vermillion County officials in July to stop using the special emergency-only highway message boards to advertise their charity fish fries and spaghetti dinners.

OBSESSIONS Huang Chunyi, 94, of Taiwan, told a reporter from China Daily in May that the secret to his longevity is that he likes to look at photographs of pretty women every day, and he showed off his collection of 100,000 that he has amassed from newspapers and magazines over the last 20 years. His favorites are Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz and Chinese model Chiling Lin. “I hope these scrapbooks will become family heirlooms,” he said.

GOVERNMENT IN ACTION Beijing News reported in July that the city intends to assign tracking numbers to every single cabbage, carrot and pea pod in preparation for the 2008 Olympics, to identify their origins to improve food safety. Five thousand tons of vegetables may be eaten during the Olympics, and Greenpeace has criticized Chinese farming for using banned pesticides and other soil pollutants.





LIFE’S CHEAP IN FLORIDA Eduardo Gonzalez, 18, was arrested and charged as the one who shot an Orlando, Fla., man to death in March for spilling beer on him in a bar.

ike many young musicians today, Paula Fuga says she listens to all different types of music. Among them she includes Erykah Badu, Soldiers of Jah Army and Jack Johnson—who, she admits, has become a more tangible influence since she met him on Oahu’s North Shore last year. The meeting took place during a kickball tournament Johnson was participating in, while Fuga was singing on the sidelines. When he was done playing, he approached Fuga and asked her to join him in this year’s Kokua Festival—his annual mega-concert to support a non-profit organization intent on raising environmental awareness in Hawai`i. Fuga says she was nervous and excited. “I couldn’t believe it,” Fuga says. “I was like, ‘Oh my God! Jack! I know who you are!’ I was going off.” The timing couldn’t be better. Unbeknownst to Johnson, Fuga was gigging regularly in preparation for releasing her debut CD, Lilikoi. The exposure Fuga would get from being in a lineup that included Johnson, Ben Harper, Henry Kapono, Damien Marley and Willie Nelson, was momentous. “It was a surreal experience,” she says, “to share a stage with all of those people at this stage in my life. Somebody told me the biggest asset I have is people’s faith in me—that they love the music, what I’m doing. It’s the key element in my being able to make music.” Born in Louisiana in 1978, Fuga’s parents raised her on Oahu in Waimanalo. When she was four, her parents split and her mother got involved with drugs. They soon sent Fuga to live with her grandparents. Though traumatized at the time, Fuga considers it a blessing now, choosing not to make the same mistakes her mom did. Fortunately, Fuga also benefited greatly by her grandparents’ love and appreciation of music. While her grandfather played slack key, her grandmother played `ukulele and sang and generally supported young Fuga when she naturally showed an interest in music. She first started playing flute but then switched to `ukulele, under the instruction of Roy Sakuma. “I’ve always made music, ever since I could remember,” Fuga says. “Whether it was with scissors or whistling or snapping my fingers. But my mom never knew I could sing until I was in high school.” Fuga actually gave her first public vocal performance in the first grade. She remembers sitting at a lunch table in the café of her school in Kailua when some teachers asked her and a few friends to sing onstage. “I sang every song I knew,” Fuga says. “‘Ten Little Indians,’ ‘Row, Row, Row Your Boat,’ ‘Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star.’ And then the next day, they asked us to sing again but I didn’t want to sing the same songs. So they brought out a microphone and I sang Michael Jackson’s ‘Billie Jean’ and everybody laughed. I was so shame!”

The experience was not lost on her. Fuga insists that, to this day, every time she performs she makes sure to sing each song differently than the last. “Music is alive,” she says. “It’s always growing and moving. I just groove with it.” In 1995, when Fuga was a Kailua High junior, she competed in the annual “Brown Bags to Stardom” talent showcase in Honolulu. She sang Dionne Warwick’s “Walk On By” and made a lot of friends. “It was awesome,” she says. “I got to meet Richard Grieco and Natalie Cole, and a lot of talented kids around Hawai`i—a few of them have gone on to play music professionally.” After high school, Fuga got a job teaching Hawaiian Studies at Ahuimanu Elementary. She also landed a gig as educational interpreter at the Bishop Museum. And then there was the infamous American Idol audition. It was 2004—the same year Camille Velasco and Jasmine Trias had much of Hawai`i glued to their sets. That year, there were three rounds of auditions in Hawai`i alone. Out of 2000 hopefuls in Round One at Aloha Stadium, 200 moved on to the Sheraton Moana Waikiki. Then out of those, 60 moved on from Round Two at the Sheraton Moana Waikiki. Only 20 would make it to Hollywood for the televised showdown spectacle. By all accounts, Fuga sang an exceptional version of “Son of a Preacher Man” in Round Three. While she noticed that the AI producers and judges were referring to other contenders by their numbers, they were calling Fuga by her name. She was ecstatic. Nevertheless, Paula, Randy and Simon didn’t pass her through. But when it came time to film the American Idol pre-season special “Uncut, Uncensored, and Untalented,” Fuga was flown to Hollywood anyway, along with other people who were rejected but had a popular response. CBS Studios put her up in a fancy hotel in Beverly Hills and asked her to write a song about the judges. When the AI cameras captured Fuga and her `uke performing a reggae-tinged tune she called simply, “American Idol in Hawaii,” the Internet Weblogs and message boards blew up with new fans’ demands for a video or mp3 of the song. She got a lot of offers—most of them bad—from her brief stint on TV. But she did make an important connection with Spencer “Bo” Toyama, a program assistant on American Idol. Toyama had gone to school for business management in music. “He told me if I had any contracts or whatever, he’d look at them for me ‘cause he believed in me,” Fuga says. “He said, ‘You can do this yourself, you know. I’ll help you.’” So Fuga started a record label with him, Pakipika Productions, and Toyama helped her get business loans. “He’s a good person and I’m really, really fortunate to be in this partnership with him,” she says. “He’s so honest. You hear those stories about the music industry— the empty promises and like that. But I’m pretty street smart—you can’t just come in and blindside me.” Fuga spent the rest of that year singing with reggae band Dubkonscious, honing her solo skills, and laying down tracks in the recording studio.

She produced and wrote all of the songs for her debut album. When she recorded the song “Lilikoi,” it was all very last minute. And yet, Fuga says, somehow everything “fit so right.” It only seemed appropriate to name the album after a song that conveyed so much. “It’s about loving myself, being one with myself before settling down and beginning a new relationship,” she says. “It’s wrong to place my happiness in somebody else’s hands. But when you’re pono with it, you’re all good inside. ‘If I wanna catch a fish, I must tend to my lo`i… ‘cause a fish will come in, and then I will catch it correctly.’” Fuga recorded a lot of the album at the Rainforest Room in Honolulu. But her time slots kept getting bumped because that was where the popular TV show Lost was also doing their sound. So Fuga finished the remainder of her recording sessions at Hyde Street Studios in San Francisco. And Lilikoi was finally released in May of this year. It’s a soulful production, with Fuga’s vocals bringing a powerful, gospel-like passion to reggae grooves with Pacific Island instrumentation and an occasional string quartet added in for good measure. Her eloquent use of `olelo—metaphors and images in Hawaiian language—also add lyrical and melodic depth to subtle R&B tones. A lot of press lately has been giving attention to the fact that Fuga’s music defies the categories of contemporary Hawaiian and traditional Hawaiian music. But Fuga resists categorization. “I’m into a lot of different styles,” says Fuga. “I was reading this book—it was everything you need to know about the music business. One of the things it said was to do music that’s in your heart, because you’re gonna have to live with it, so that’s what I’m doing. There was some pressure to stick with one genre but I just couldn’t do it. I don’t just like one genre. No matter what rhythm, it’s all music. Lucky for me, I have creative freedom with the arrangements. I’m very fortunate to have that control.” Up to now, while Fuga has been riding this escalating wave of fame, she has kept her day job. Since she manages her own career, Fuga must book her shows on her own. And due to rising demands this summer, she’s had to take a break from other employment in order to focus all her time and energy on both the business and creative sides of her music. “I can always go back to the Bishop Museum any time, work with kids anytime,” says Fuga. “If I strengthen my music all of those areas will fall into place, too.” But right now, with her schedule quickly filling up, and the crowds growing in numbers to match her steadily increasing venue size, Fuga is poised and ready for impending stardom with characteristic calm and humility. “All you gotta do is just listen to your gut,” says Fuga. “Go on your emotion, clearly, and let it flow. You control your own destiny—all you gotta do is work hard for it.” MTW

‘What’s Vietnamese for Delicious?’


Pho Mai and its massive menu Mark, my vegetarian co-worker, is forever recommending restaurants. I wonder if he realizes that I wrote this year’s Best of Maui blurb for “Best Steak.” Regardless, I found his argument for “best restaurant ever” convincing, and went one recent night to Pho Mai, a charming Vietnamese restaurant nestled between the ABC store and the glow putt place in the Lahaina Center.

Pho Mai

Right away I knew I’d like the place. I cringed a bit when my wife asked our server if they had Thai iced tea, but was ecstatic when she answered yes. Looking around as we sipped our delicious concoctions—if a more perfect beverage exists, please let me know—I relaxed and took in the restaurant’s bright, open dining area. The large room, highlighted with splashes of color provided by numerous beautiful floral displays and a few live plants, nicely absorbed its 10 tables. After scanning Pho Mai’s massive menu—it contains 90 items, with an additional vegetarian menu offering 49 more— we decided on the Crispy Deep Fried Spring Rolls to start off. Red chili sauce, green lettuce and mint nicely complemented the six rolls and white rice noodles. They were smoking hot and delicious. Our next choice was the Chicken Pot Stickers. After the spring rolls, the presentation and flavor of the pot stickers was a bit of a letdown, though they were interestingly wrapped in a more breaded than noodle-based casing. And they

were delicious when smothered in the table’s four-alarm fire red chili sauce. Properly warmed up, we fired off three entrée orders at our bewildered host. “Are you sure you want that much food?” she asked. We were. We went with the Rice with Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast, the Thai Basil and Eggplant Stir-fry and the Pho with Beef Meat Ball Soup. The chicken arrived first. Served “local style” with two scoops of rice, the moist, marinated chicken completely justified my vegetarian friend’s faith. It’s just a shame he can’t eat it. “Is it possible for skinless chicken to taste this good?” I asked my wife. “Whymmblwrbll,” she said. Apparently it was. The basil and eggplant stir-fry came next. The heaping pile of eggplant, onions and basil drenched in an oyster sauce diverted us momentarily from our poultry orgy. Finally we were confronted with our final dish: the meatball soup. “Do you remember the Jackass episode when Johnny Knoxville ordered the soup-” my wife began to say when the soup arrived. “Yes, I do,” I said, cutting her off. “Thank you very much.” Her attempt at inappropriate humor didn’t stop me from enjoying the wonderful soup. The scrumptious broth came packed with sausage, rice noodles, mint, basil, bean sprouts, lemon and jalapenos. Exhausted, we awaited for our check, which I was sure would be $300. Shelling out just $52 later, it was time to leave. “How was everything?” asked our server. “Well, what’s Vietnamese for delicious?” I asked. “Non,” she said. “N-G-O-N.” “Exactly,” I said, and we walked outside.

15 Years of “Taste” In 1992, LahainaTown Action Committee and its Executive Director Theo Morrison wanted to come up with new events to promote Lahaina as a destination. Some restaurateurs suggested a weekly in-restaurant promotion called, “Tuesday Night is A Taste of Lahaina.” The logistics proved untenable but a core group of business people decided to make the original concept bigger and turn it into an annual event benefitting a local charity and promoting the town as a culinary destination. The first “A Taste of Lahaina” was held that September and proved a great success. A “theme gala” to showcase Maui’s best chefs – “Maui Chefs Present…” – began the following year. And in 1994, an extra “tasting day” was added. The fourth year expanded the focus to include big name entertainers from around Hawai‘i. In 1999, a new logo incorporated the slogan “The Best of Island Music.” Over the years, this weekend-long festival has wowed the senses of, literally, hundreds of thousands of residents and visitors. We are proud to mark a milestone and welcome you to the 15th Annual “A Taste of Lahaina & The Best of Island Music.”

This creation has been the greatest experience of my career.” Born and raised on O‘ahu, Henry has continually evolved and has continually captured the hearts of all who hear him. The popular Kealoha Slam Poet will perform with Henry’s band.

Conscious Healing is a seven-piece powerhouse of a band that plays its own synthesis of reggae, swing and hip hop. “Conscious Healing” is also the title track of their first CD, just released August 15th. It is comprised of 16 original songs written by three of the band’s members. These four rhythm players and three horn players with their big band sound perform regularly at various clubs on Maui. Makana’s distinctive music blends elements of folk rock, ethnic, classical, bluegrass, jazz,

and Hawaiian slack key. In 2000, his eponymous debut album was voted Best CD by the readers of Honolulu Weekly and won Best World Music Album at the Hawai’i Music Awards. A performer since he was eight years old, Makana has opened for such superstars as Sting, Santana, and Elvis Costello and he’s shared the stage with Andreas Vollenweider, Bruddah Iz, and Keali’i Reichel. One of Maui’s most popular bands, Crazy Fingers, plays its own original music and covers many favorite standards. With boundless versatility, Crazy Fingers offers up an endless variety of music from island pop to

The grand finale of the event will be a performance by one of Hawai‘i’s most talented musicians, Na Hoku Hanohano Award-winner and Grammy Award nominee Willie K. Willie was raised in Lahaina and began playing music and entertaining audiences at the age of ten. Since then, he has developed into an eclectic and charismatic singer, songwriter and entertainer. An amazing guitar virtuoso, Willie K has played with and/or opened for such musical giants as B.B. King, Santana, Al DiMeola, Willie Nelson, Prince, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Elvin Bishop, Bonnie Rait, Jackson Browne, Mick Fleetwood, George

Benson and Jimmy Buffett……just to name a few!

Morrison and told her I ‘ll take the music and guaranteed a twenty percent growth,” he said. He enlisted the help of Alan Pokipala and Alaka’i Paleka of KPOA and The Best of Island Music was born. The target was to feature the best musicians in the islands to go along with the best cuisine. “Every back yard gathering in Hawaii starts with good food, good music, and good friends,” Kunitomo says. It was a natural to blend the two elements. Having once in a lifetime performances from the island’s greatest musicians creates a tough

challenge every year. Dennis Pavao, Eddie Kamae, Keali’I Reichel, Willie K, Mark Kelii Hoomalu, Hapa, Kapena to name a few, have all chipped in for the good of the kids. This year the trio has once again secured an unbelieveable line up. Friday’s line up is a great example of what they do. “Like today’s chefs, Hawaii’s musicians continue to evolve and create a legacy for our island culture. Makaha Sons define traditional Hawaiian music and they are followed by Ekolu who is on fire with their own contemporary sound. And then, closing the evening is the third reincarnation of Henry Kapono as the “Wild Hawaiian”. He will finish the evening taking Hawaiian music into a whole new realm,” boasts Kunitomo.

Saturday, “The most talented musician Hawaii ever saw, Willie K, will close the event. As the sun goes down Makana will fill the event with his slack key styling while finishing his set with a sampling of his new rock and roll cd. Then Crazy Fingers will get the crowd on their feet led by local favorite, Scott Baird. Each night the opening group is hand selected by Alaka’i, KPOA’s Morning Goddess. “She picks a new just recorded group that is hot on her request line and features them on the grand Taste stage.” This year, she’s chosen Jerry “pio” Javier and seven-piece band Conscious Healing. Great food and incredible music, no wonder A Taste of Lahaina & The Best of Island Music is one of Maui’s favorite events!

land in Napili, it is West Maui’s only college preparatory independent day school. Na Kamali‘i O Ke Akua – The Children are the Gift from God – is an award-winning keiki halau specializing in hula and Tahitian dance. Led by Noe and Tommy Akima, the halau is a family-oriented group with more than 40 dancers. All students are welcomed, there is no charge to join, and lessons are free to students three to 16 years. The group depends on fundraisers like A Taste of Lahaina to help with the cost of costumes and other needs. The halau is responsible for stage security. Established in 1932, the Lahainaluna National Honor Society handles the singularly least glamorous and arguably most important job of the weekend – TRASH pickup! Quite an undertaking as more than 8,000 cubic feet of trash are generated. The society

represents Lahainaluna’s top junior and senior classes’ academic talent. The American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life raises thousands of dollars for research and programs in their night-long walks held all over the world. Relay For Life represents the hope that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported, and that one day cancer will be eliminated. Lahaina’s popular annual event boasts participation by nearly everyone in the community. This group staffs on Saturday night the Coca-Cola truck provided by Maui Soda & Ice Works. The Lahainaluna High School Girls’ Soccer team has a winning record at A Taste of Lahaina. To raise money for uniforms and team travel, these young women staff on Friday night the Coca-Cola truck provided by Maui Soda & Ice Works. Head Coach David Rockett keeps this team a key

contender each year in the Maui Interscholastic League. The Santiago Association of Maui undertakes the massive job of supervising Event Parking with the direction of Emi Cortez and Marissa Ugale. This group, founded in 2002, works to preserve Filipino culture, helps Filipino immigrants get established in their new home and sends donations of medicine and money to assist students in the Philippines. The funds raised go towards college scholarships for deserving Filipino students. Lahainaluna High School PTA helps run the admission booths under the direction of Treasurer Kathleen Sera. The PTA boasts membership of nearly 50% of the school’s student families. The funds raised go to student and teacher awards that recognize students for their grades, performance, and service.

The Best of Island Music was founded back in 1995. BJ’s Chicago Pizzeria opened in 1994 and participated in its first Taste of Lahaina that September. “We served over 600 slices of 1 hour old pizza,” said Jerry Kunitomo, Bj’s Owner. “I wasn’t real proud of the product we put out and there was no way of baking pizza at the site. So I approached, then organizer, Theo

Beneficiaries Participation by nonprofits that volunteer to assist with every aspect of the festival is a major element in the success of A Taste of Lahaina. Through their hard work, they raise funds for their causes and we proudly donate a portion of the event’s proceeds to these important community organizations. American Youth Soccer Organization – AYSO – is a nationwide non-profit that develops and delivers quality youth soccer programs. Approximately 400 Maui young people participate. Under the leadership of Owen Ueno, AYSO has volunteered at A Taste of Lahaina for more than a decade. For the first time, volunteers will be running the popular Kids’ Zone. Horizons Academy of Maui is a nationally accredited, non-profit, private school whose mission is to provide quality, individualized education honoring the


talents of students with learning diversities. Academy volunteers contribute 600 hours of labor to the set-up and breakdown of A Taste of Lahaina and the previous weekend’s Maui Chefs Present… event. Once again, the Parent-Teacher Group from Sacred Hearts School in Lahaina will run the Beer & Wine Garden. Under the direction of Diane Countryman, volunteers will oversee both the garden and the new Fine Dining area. The funds raised by the PTG support student field trips and help offset some of this historic school’s administrative expenses. A new addition, Maui Preparatory Academy’s ParentTeacher-Student ‘Ohana is in charge of security. With strong community support, the school welcomed its first students this year.

A Taste Of Lahaina 2006 - 15th Annual Celebration

Hysterical Historical Thursday, Sept. 14, at McCoy Studio Theater, MACC [COMEDY] Anyone working in the tourism industry (or living in West Maui) knows this universal truth: tourists are strange and often hilarious creatures. On Thursday, Sept. 14, Charles Phoenix will be presenting irrefutable evidence to back my claim. Phoenix, a cultural historian/stand-up comedian/dude with maybe the coolest sounding name I’ve ever heard, has conceived a faux-retro living room slide show from vintage family photographs of generations past. Like a sweetly deranged grandmother, Phoenix has been captivating audiences with his hysterical observations of the traveling American family. From their choices of “fashion” to their often podunk destinations, Phoenix reconstructs and re-imagines life on the road with the original Griswalds. Even those that don’t spend their workdays slinging burgers or humping luggage will appreciate the history and humor of Phoenix’s presentation. But I’m guessing it’ll be especially funny for anyone who’s ever given directions to “La-Hay-Na” to a man wearing black socks and sandals with an aloha shirt. For a dollar. I’d better be careful here. Like a rowdy businessman watching Girls Gone Wild with his associates, I’d hate to discover any of my family members in one of the slides. Because Lord knows we’ve all provided plenty of material for Phoenix to skewer. A portion of the proceeds will be given to the Maui AIDS foundation.

[REGGAE] Most of you reggae heads are already familiar and love the legend known as Pato Banton. His life-affirming reggae is infectious, spawning such classics as “Don’t Sniff Coke,” and over the past 20 years, Banton has toured and recorded with the likes of Sting, Peter Gabriel, UB40 and Steel Pulse. But after getting nominated for a Grammy for his 2000 album Life is a Miracle, he took a sevenyear hiatus from touring. But he wasn’t just lounging around in his swank Birmingham pad—Banton started a music program certified by British colleges for underprivileged and at risk youth.

[FUNDRAISER] The Pacific Cancer Foundation is a Wailuku-based non-profit that assists cancer patients and their families. It is the only group on Maui that allows patients to get clinical trials without having to fly to Oahu or the mainland. Obviously, this kind of help costs a lot of money, which they raise from good-hearted people who do stuff like donating at least $25 for the privilege of walking really fast for about five kilometers, which isn’t really that far—in this case, along a circuitous course that begins and ends at the Ritz-Carlton’s Beach House Lawn over by D.T. Fleming Beach. All donations are tax-deductible and, really, you could use the exercise. For more information, 669-2440. [ANTHONY PIGNATARO]

From the Ashes Ben Affleck does George Reeves Ben Affleck takes a significant stride toward correcting his frat-boyactor image in an engrossing portrayal of George Reeves, the actor popular for playing the Man of Steel on television’s Adventures of Superman series in the 1950s. Reeves’ alleged suicide after the show’s cancellation in 1959, instigates LA private detective Louis Simo’s homicide investigation at the behest of Reeves’ bereaved mother Helen Bessolo (Lois Smith).


★★★★★ Rated R/126 mins.

Adrien Brody delivers a winning performance as the embattled private investigator in director Allen Coulter’s (director on The Sopranos) stunning feature film debut. Production designer Leslie McDonald (Intolerable Cruelty) brings the film’s California noir period atmosphere to brilliant life with an assured eye for detail that immerses the viewer in Hollywood’s most fetishized decade. The film’s anachronistic title references the original 50-foot tall Hollywood Hills sign that was erected on the side of Mount Lee by a real estate company in 1923 before the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce abbreviated it by its last four letters in 1949 during much-needed repairs.

The word gently signals a defining moment in Hollywood history where sordid reality undermined the polished illusion of celebrity culture. Hollywoodland thrives on opposing polarities. Debut screenwriter Paul Bernbaum puts together a multi-dimensional narrative puzzle where L.A. detective Louis Simo sets out to solve a mystery that connects to his personal life as the recently divorced father of young boy whose childhood values have been shattered by the self-destruction of his television hero. In a morning diner scene that could have been cut from David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive Simo presses his former LAPD partner to give him a hot tip. The hard-nosed detective tells Simo about Reeves’ mother’s suspicions about her son’s death being a homicide after the police department have all but signed off on the case as an open and shut suicide. Between uncomfortable visits with his distraught son, nagging ex-wife (Molly Parker) and her annoying boyfriend, Simo attempts to reconstruct Reeves’ demise at the age of 45 that occurred during a house party with Reeves’ brash new fiancée Leonore Lemmon (Robin Tunney) present in the next room with several guests. Simo’s longingly imagined scenarios for Reeves’ possible means of death are fleshed out in narrative cul de sacs of murderous speculation that backfire on the private dick from every direction. On the other side of Bernbaum’s narrative split is Reeves’ back-story as an actoron-the-make whose claim to fame was a

ence with a bit of Reeves’ silent home footage that Louis Simo carefully watches for telling subtext. As Reeves performs physical acts in his front yard for what he intends to be a wrestling demo film, Affleck exposes the character’s inner workings. He exhibits essential aspects of Reeves that respond humbly to every question raised in the film. The depth of Affleck’s tempered emotional enthusiasm tells you everything you need to know. MTW

Shame Junkie Glen Phillips answers the questions posed by Mr. Lemons underwear? I have that one all the time. It’s about public humiliation. And here I am putting myself in a room of strangers every night. I think it’s mostly just a way to rub my face in my fears. People tend to think performers are confident, but they’re mostly insecure.

When he was still in his teens, Glen Phillips signed to a major label with his band Toad the Wet Sprocket. By the time he was old enough to drink, the college radio/alt rock band had three hit singles and a platinum album.

Glen Phillips

What new invention needs to be made?

Friday, Sept. 8, 10 p.m. at Paradice Bluz

An electro-magnetic pulse weapon to blow out all laptops— I’ll admit it: I’m addicted to mine. But some sort of anti-gadget device like that. I miss the time before all the gadgets. I liked writing a lot of letters—when I was on the road, I wrote to my wife instead of calling her cell phone all the time, like I can now. And I think I felt more “connected” then, when I had to miss her more.

That was in the early 1990s. These days, Phillips has taken to flying solo, making melodic folk rock and touring extensively while raising his family in Santa Barbara. He’s put out three albums since his days with Toad—the latest being Mr. Lemons, released in May of this year and is already lauded for its “incomparable songwriting” by American Songwriter. Aside from his slinky cover of Huey Lewis and the News’ “I Want A New Drug,” Phillips writes all the songs on Mr. Lemons. Whether it’s death of a loved one (“Marigolds”), the end of the world (“Last Sunset”), breaking resolutions (“The Next Day”) or neurological disorders, Phillips’ lyrics tend towards the intimate and deeply personal. Inspired by his new album, I decided to get a little personal with Phillips myself—by phone from California.

What does heaven look like? I don’t think it does. I don’t think it’s a place. I think it’s just a lack of illusions—it looks like this, but with clarity. What’s your biggest weakness? It’s that shame thing. When was the last time you were surprised? It happens a lot. The most common kind of surprise is when I don’t give someone enough credit, and they’re much more generous than people think they are.

MAUI TIME WEEKLY: What is the best love song ever written? GLEN PHILLIPS: I always go back to “Crazy Love” by Van Morrison. Or “Hyper-Ballad” by Bjork—it’s definitely a different kind of love song. What’s the secret to marriage?

Phillips, possibly dreaming of modular furniture

What would be your last meal on the last day of earth?

More than anything, it’s about not wanting to change the other person. And at the same time—not letting them get away with anything! What are five things that make you happy? Uh, let’s see… putting together modular furniture and assembling well-designed kitchen products, good food, spending a day in the waves with my kids is just about perfect, hiking and making sweet love.

I’d probably want to have a big potluck. What’s your most embarrassing moment? I get ‘em all the time. I’m kind of a shame junkie. Every show night there’s usually something significant that nobody else seems to notice. I’ll think I’ve said something stupid and everybody’ll be like, “What?” You know that nightmare some people get about going to school in their

What would you like to see in the newspaper headlines tomorrow? “Nothing To Report” would be nice. Or, “Israel Pulls Out/Hezbollah Disarms/Everyone Gets Along”—something like that. What’s your biggest obstacle these days? Shame. It’s really just another word for fear. What’s your favorite sound? Quiet. Finding places quiet enough to be able to hear the little details makes me really happy. MTW

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22)

Most Virgos aren’t procrastinators. Oh sure, like everyone, you’ve occasionally let something slide until the last minute and then had to scramble to get it done. Luckily, you’re a better scrambler than most, so hardly anyone even noticed how precariously close to disaster it all was. But let’s be realistic: you don’t actually have tons of experience with being under the wire, not compared to chronic postponers like those Libras or Pisces. Consequently this week’s events may catch you off-guard. Get ready to scramble.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22)

A seed, or an egg for that matter, is packed with nutrition designed to feed a fledgling during the early stages of its development. That’s why they’re so coveted by other creatures. Beware, Libra, because you’re due to receive something very much like a seed this week: small, but packed with potential and opportunity. What’s to beware? Well, accompanying this little blessing are vultures, eager to snatch it from you if they get a chance. Now that I’ve warned you, however, I expect that you’ll make sure they don’t get the slightest opportunity, right?



It’s not that you’re disingenuous. But sometimes you simply have too much on your mind to be fully present, so you might come off as not giving a shit. Who doesn’t space out every now and then? But occasionally, you don’t notice that this time it’s actually important that you pay attention and not be distracted by your own thoughts and concerns. This week be careful about when you allow your inner universe to dominate your awareness and when you ought to let the real world intrude. There are a couple moments that you’d really rather not miss.

Charge it!

TO ADVERTISE Call 244-0777 FAX NUMBER 808-244-0446

These days, people are blogging from even the most remote, inhospitable, or dangerous corners of the earth. We have unprecedented access to each other’s lives and experiences. You can find out what it’s like to be an average dude in China, a spoiled teenager in Long Island, or a female artist in Iraq. So there’s no excuse for the “been there, done that, seen it all” attitude you’ve been wearing the past couple weeks. There’s so much you haven’t seen or done yet. If you can’t find it, it’s because you’re not looking hard enough, or in the right places.


At the moment your heart is a castle fortress, surrounded by a moat, hidden by leagues of impassable thorny rose bushes, and not printed on any map. And now you’re populating the moat with crocodiles, piranhas and flesh-eating bacteria, as if all of the aforementioned protective bullshit wasn’t enough. I know you’ve been screwed (a few times). I can appreciate making it difficult for anyone to get in there before your heart is fully healed. But aren’t you maybe making it just a tad too challenging? You can keep your heart safe while still making it possible for someone determined and worthy enough to get in. Why don’t you try?



Aquarians often loudly advertise their open-mindedness, and with good reason: you are, by and large, utterly reasonable about life and all that it presents to you. But nearly every Aquarian I’ve met is plagued by a subtle and pervasive piece of illogic he probably picked up in his childhood and has never gotten around to extinguishing. It’s not usually anything monstrous, but it’s still quite capable of cutting into your genuine enjoyment and appreciation of the world around you. Anyway, this week you’re likely to be confronted with your own tiny brand of prejudice in a way you can’t deny. It might not be pleasant, but it’s sure good for you.



MAILING 33 N. Market St. Ste. 201 Wailuku, HI 96793

Can I revise my opinion about you again, Pisces? It’s not my fault I’ve changed my mind so much— your frequent transformations merit different responses, including this latest astonishing development. I’ve seen you, in the past, heed your own conflicting urges to such an extent that you ended up not going anywhere or doing anything. But in recent weeks you’ve demonstrated that—when properly motivated—you can move, swiftly, and not only get the job done, but get it done well. There’s more where that came from. This week you’re capable of productivity that would make a Virgo proud. Show us what you can do.


DROP OFF 33 N. Market St. Ste. 201, Wailuku

No one blames you for having a generally confrontational nature. You’re named after the Greek god of war, after all. But this week you must nevertheless put aside your weapons and make peace with any and all who desire it. This might involve some major flexibility on your part, so limber up. You’re used to just grabbing what you want, so you might be surprised when your willingness to compromise and be adaptable earn you huge rewards. In a battle, the victors reap the spoils. But sharing them with those you’ve fought with is a reward you just can’t put a price tag on.


Sometimes you don’t even know you’ve made a mistake (even a very severe one) until long afterwards. (See half of your past relationships, for examples.) This makes learning from your errors truly difficult. But every once in a while you can sense that what you’re up to is a colossal blunder even while it’s happening. That shouldn’t keep you from going there anyway—you might be wrong about being wrong, after all—but pay attention. If it turns out you’ve screwed up, I want you to know exactly how you did it, so you never do anything like it again.


If the signs were water, you Twins would be summer rain: Warm, sometimes gentle, sometimes fierce, eager to mix with sunlight and make rainbows, unpredictable, and dramatic. You’re also just as essential, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. During dry summers, plants wither and die and the world becomes a sweaty, smelly, oppressive, and aggressive place. Not everyone may appreciate you— this you’re likely to learn this week—but they ought to respect you nonetheless, because they need you, whether they know it or not.


I recently compared you to the ocean, because you’re exactly that changeable, and complex. Sometimes you’re a source of lazy serenity, languidly lapping at your shores, and at other times you’re capable of drowning force and fierce destructiveness. This is all fascinating, but the problem some people have with it is that it’s all so out of control. Isn’t it high time you got a handle on that turbulent inner world? I’m not saying you need to really control your feelings. All I’m suggesting is that you figure out a way to equip us (and yourself) with some kind of early warning system, so the next time a tropical storm hits, we’ll be prepared.

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22)

Leos make fantastic lovers, but they’re not for everyone. For someone who values loyalty, enthusiasm and generosity, you could be ideal. But for someone who needs constant excitement and everchanging circumstances you might come off as a tad predictable. This shouldn’t be taken too hard. Too many Leos let getting dumped really screw with their self-esteem, when most of the time it’s not that they suck, it’s just that their partners were looking for something else entirely. Trying to convince someone you rock when they’re not prepared to see it is no fun. Don’t bother. Wait until you find someone who knows you rock already. We’re out there.






The Laws of Motion Galileo’s principle Objects in motion tend to stay in motion, and objects at rest tend to stay at rest unless an outside force acts upon them. Last month marked the nine-year anniversary of my move to Maui. I don’t quite know how I feel about this. I would love to launch into some trip down memory lane featuring the past nine years here and what they’ve meant to me but… oh, I’ve kinda already done that, haven’t I? Well anyhow, what I’m thinking about most at the moment is what’s going on right now. Which is, curiously, not a whole lot. I’m sitting on my couch in a sarong, with the fan blowing and the TV blaring— set on David Letterman—but I’m neither watching nor listening. I just reheated some fried rice from last night’s dinner at L&L Drive In, along with some farmer’s market veggies I boiled into a mush and drank with a glass of merlot. Yes, of course I mean two. But mostly, I’m just sitting here thinking about all the shit I really should be doing—the on-going work projects, the personal writing projects, cleaning my house, etc.—and trying to find the patterns in the odd events that have been occurring lately. It’s all induced a kind of paralysis. I’ve also been running into an inordinate amount of people who say the most cryptic things, which only compels me to think there’s some hidden message the universe is throwing out that I should be catching, absurd though that may sound. Anyway, earlier this evening, I was stoked to have “finished” work early, and I shunned plans to go out with some pals in lieu of enjoying a night in relative peace. I then proceeded to hang at DC’s house for an hour while he slept and I watched Overhaulin’, and then he jumped up in a panic and scurried off to work and I was left alone with my thoughts again and my horrible propensity for not being able to sort through it all. And it was, like, totally bumming me out.

Newton’s Second Law The rate of change of the momentum of a body is directly proportional to the net force acting on it, and the direction of the change in momentum takes place in the direction of the net force. Partially because of the fire but mostly because we could, DC and I spent almost the entire afternoon hanging out at a bar in Ma`alaea. It was such a gloriously leisurely and lazy thing to do—to spend so much time in one place eating, drinking and chatting with the harbor locals. There were still those “things” I really needed to do, but for the first time in a long while, I didn’t feel guilty about it. Law of Reciprocal Actions To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Next week I’m going to New York. And no, I’ve never been. I’m going because my friends Amy and Randall are getting married there. But then after the wedding, I’m going to run around wild in the city with googly-eyed glee. I’m gonna stay in a hotel next to the Museum of Sex, eat slices of thin greasy pizza, go to a fabulous party launching my new favorite magazine, check out the art in the East Village, go to new divey bars, attempt to navigate the transit system and competitive taxi hailing, scare myself with uncertainty and adventure and absolutely not ever sleep. Not even for a second. And if you’re good, I’ll tell you all about it. Samantha Campos is disgusted by how much she depends on “liquid” products. MTW
