As McCain and Obama duke it out, the presidential longshots take aim ne of the first big surprises I encountered after arriving on Maui was the number of Ron Paul supporters who apparently call the island home. Seeing evidence of support for the long-shot Republican presidential candidate in Kahului or Wailuku wasn’t too shocking; bring enough people together and you’ll get all kinds of opinions. Plus there were plenty of Obama and a few McCain decals as well. But when I traveled outside the major population centers, the level of Paul mania really hit home. I think it was after spotting a street sign in Paia plastered beyond the point of readability with “Ron Paul ‘08” bumper stickers that I sensed a genuine phenomenon. Of course, Mauians aren’t alone in their rabid love of the shoot-from-thehip Texas Congressman who earned few delegates but did energize a previously dormant segment of the GOP base—fed up, anti-tax Libertarian types who basically just want the government to leave them the hell alone. I guess it’s not all that surprising some of those folks live on a tiny island in the middle of the Pacific. Paul hung on as long as he could, even after his chances of winning the nomination dwindled to a mathematical impossibility. Eventually he dropped out of the race as a formality, but instead of going the conventional route and grudgingly endorsing McCain he became a champion for third party candidates. (Paul himself ran as a Libertarian in 1988.) Arguing that the two-party system is broken beyond repair, Paul held a televised event September 10 to spotlight some of the other contenders/pretenders vying to be leader of the free world—or, failing that, to get their names in the news. In his impassioned but rather rambling introduction, Paul argued that third party supporters are “actually the majority” if you factor in those who don’t vote because they don’t like the two major parties and those who vote for the “lesser of two evils.” When it comes to candidates, Paul said his take is, “the more the merrier.” Who are these merry men and women? Let’s a look: Ralph Nader: Yes, he’s running again. Love him or hate him (and these days most people seem to fall into the latter category) you’ve got to

O

admire old Ralph’s tenacity. Accused by many of costing Gore the 2000 election when he ran on the Green Party ticket and siphoned votes in swing states, Nader’s campaigning this year as an Independent. Though he looks unlikely to make much of a splash (even dyed-inthe-wool liberals are pretty gun shy after eight years of Bush/Cheney), the rabble rousing consumer advocate’s still got vim and vigor aplenty at age 74; we’d love to see his cantankerous influence in the debates.

Chuck Baldwin: The nominee of the Constitution Party, Baldwin has the distinction of being the candidate to send me the most e-mails (three more arrived just today). In addition to being a prolific e-mailer, Baldwin’s apparently won over TV commentator Lou Dobbs, meaning he’s got the cranky old anti-immigration white dude vote shored up. Plus, if we can elect a president named Barack, surely we’re ready for one named Chuck. MTW

Nothing to Wear? ...We ...We Know Know Do Barack and John make you wanna Ralph? Bob Barr: One of two former legislators from Georgia mounting a third party challenge, Barr’s presence on the ballot will likely offset any gains McCain might have made from Nader’s run. The Libertarian nominee, Barr could snag a few of the crusty old fiscal conservative votes and maybe win over a share of those Ron Paul-loving Mauians. Cynthia McKinney: Also a former Congressperson from Georgia, McKinney gained notoriety as an outspoken critic of the Bush administration and for an altercation with a security guard on the steps of the capitol. After defecting from the Dems, she won the Green Party nomination. I interviewed her in California earlier this year, and though I was impressed by her passion and grasp of history and foreign affairs, she’s far too much of a pull-no-punches contrarian to make any noise, even on the far left fringe.

ROBREPORT

Flowing with the changes A watershed decision for streams and other major shifts “Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or the present are likely to miss the future.” —John F. Kennedy wo days of meetings convened by the state Commission for Water Resource Management (CWRM) filled the Haiku Community Center with an overflow crowd. Toward the back of the room, a few dozen redshirted employees of Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar (HC&S) listened to staff recommendations and testimonial pleas to return waters diverted to the plantation’s sugar cultivation for more than a century. Dozens of native Hawaiians and taro growers rallied their cause of right versus might, while more than a dozen uniformed officers (both Maui police and state Department of Conservation and Recreation Enforcement officers) watched the proceedings. After an epic 11 hour meeting on Wednesday, the CWRM heard more testimony on Thursday, and then began to deliberate on recommended interim Instream Flow Standards.

T

Maui’s last remaining sugar plantation, last week’s ruling changes the water outlook seven years after Native Hawaiian Legal Corporation took up a petition filed by Na Moku Aupuni O Koolau Hui and three East Maui taro growers. Yet Wailuanui taro farmer Ed Wendt reminded the commissioners that Uncle Harry Mitchell had begun a contested case over Waiokamilo Stream in East Maui back in 1985. Commission staff revealed that plantation diversions have been an ongoing issue for much longer, noting petitions filed by native Hawaiians in both 1881 and 1897 over decreased stream flows, or “stolen water” as many testifiers noted. Two days later, Mauians gathered at rallies in Kihei and Kahului to hear Barack Obama’s sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng, talk about another kind of change—political change. Hundreds of people showed up to hear Soetoro-Ng address Obama’s platform of “Change We Need.” Supporters were asked to redouble their efforts to reach out to friends and relatives in swing states and to elect local Democrats to help reverse the Republican legacy of the past eight years that has eroded American democracy. At press time, it also seems apparent that the U.S. Congress will not succumb to a last gasp White House effort for an unprece-

If legislators can be dissuaded from oil industry-led ploys for more drilling, both offshore and in sensitive wildlife reserves, we can begin to steer our economy in a new direction, toward green jobs in renewable energy.

Charles Darwin once wrote, “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.” Hours later, the CWRM board members voted unanimously to return at least 12 million gallons daily back into five stream systems on Maui’s windward slopes, stretching from Honopou to Wailuanui. The decision represents the most significant change in water use allocation since the Waiahole decision on Oahu that returned water from defunct sugar plantings on the Ewa Plain to streams and taro growers. That ruling has been tied up in court appeals for the past dozen years. hange rarely happens overnight. It is more commonly measured over time, be it months, years, decades, centuries or eons.

dented $700 billion bailout of teetering financial institutions. That represents a welcome change in the status quo of elected officials paying the tab for any number of cockamamie schemes that cross their desks, including an estimated $3-$4 trillion tab for the ongoing war in Iraq. Nevertheless, it sent the Dow Jones daily average plummeting to a record loss of nearly 800 points, the largest drop in history. It’s clear that the economy is in flux, but it’s much more difficult to see where all this will lead us. Perhaps more people will be on street corners looking for change—spare change. Alternatively, there may be a sufficient groundswell to begin to turn the tide against the heavy corporate influence on politics and the economy, both nationally

With airlines failing, local businesses folding, vacation rentals getting shut down and layoffs at Molokai Ranch and Maui Land & Pineapple, jobs are paramount in discussions of the local economy. The recent Hawaiian Congress of Planning Officials conference at the Grand Wailea Hotel brought in keynote speaker Michael Shuman—attorney, economist and author of Going Local and The Small-Mart Revolution. Shuman presented a variety of strategies for reinvigorating the local economy and helping offset the $11 billion that leaves the state each year to import fuel and food.

T

estimony at the CWRM hearings in Haiku also included pleas for protecting the 800 jobs at HC&S by

ensuring the amount of water the plantation would receive. Willy Kennison, Maui division director of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 142 wondered, “What is the long-term viability of HC&S? It’s tied to water availability.” He asked the commission to be sure their actions did not cause a “damaging or disastrous impact” on HC&S. But other testifiers noted that HC&S employees would be eligible for unemployment benefits, while taro growers would not. Upcountry County Council candidate Michael Howden, who serves on the Maui Board of Water Supply, called the matter, “Fundamentally an issue of social justice. It resembles a feudal system based upon class and race.” Howden also addressed another argument for maintaining water diversions to the plantation—Maui Electric Company’s (MECO) claim that they provide necessary firm power through bagasse burned at the Puunene Mill, with the excess sold to MECO. Howden noted that in order to combust the fibrous cane trash in their boilers, HC&S also burns 60,000 tons of coal yearly. He inquired whether this should indeed be considered renewable energy, as it is derived from an imported fossil fuel. While water availability plays a part in the long-term viability of HC&S, surely there are other factors. The collapse of every other plantation statewide over the past two decades wasn’t merely due to water issues. The state’s other surviving sugar plantation, Gay & Robinson on Kauai, recently announced they will be leasing their lands

for a venture to convert sugar to ethanol for fuel. HC&S has studied the potential for converting from commodity sugar production to a biofuel plantation, but has no immediate plans to change. Perhaps it’s time to get with the program. Charles Darwin once wrote, “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.” With murmurings to shift our dependence on imports and to build local sustainability, HC&S would be wise to engage in strategic planning to overhaul their operation and diversify. Jobs could be preserved, even created by adapting their existing monoculture agribusiness to a mix of food and energy production, to fuel our local economy and feed our communities. t the CWRM hearings, Seth Raabe, who holds a degree in tropical agriculture and manages a 13-acre farm in Kipahulu, testified that his small farm has 10 employees, or nearly one job per acre. By contrast, the 800 HC&S jobs on the 37,000-acre plantation means only one job per 46 acres. Pauahi Ho`okano, a Hawaiian language teacher with the immersion program at King Kekaulike, also farms taro in Wailuanui with her husband Steven. “It’s not right,” she said, “pitting Kula farmers’ rights against traditional Hawaiian farmers.” She was referring to testimony by Warren Watanabe of the Maui County Farm Bureau, who opposed the interim stream flow recommendations because of questions of the “process” for determining amounts to return to the streams. Council aide Jock Yamuguchi read testimony from Council member Michelle Anderson, who chairs the Water Resources Committee. “It is the diverter [East Maui Irrigation/ HC&S] who has the burden of proof under state law to justify that their diversions are not causing injury to downstream users.” Pauahi Ho`okano agreed. “The [commission] staff put the burden of proof on the taro growers,” she exclaimed. “It’s unfair. Completely unfair! It’s ridiculous!” She also questioned the validity of EMI’s “holdover permit,” which she stated, “does not even exist in law.” She also asked that a taro farmer be allowed to sit on the commission rather than Meredith Ching, a senior Vice President to Alexander & Baldwin, parent company of EMI and HC&S. Ching was present at the hearings, but recused herself from voting and sat in the audience. Steven Ho`okano said there is not enough water being released in Waiokamilo to bring cool water to keep his taro from rotting, and he complained that the state-appointed monitor was not fulfilling his duty. He said that growing taro and having sufficient water, “Is an inherited right, through my koko,” (Hawaiian blood quantum).

A

Hana resident Joseph Villarimo, one of the youngest testifiers, said, “It’s an art form being a Hawaiian, because they were so in-synch with their surroundings.” He said a spring on their property in Ulaino is now dried up. Last week’s momentous decision is a starting point to revitalize stream and ocean ecosystems and cultural practices for food production that have spanned many generations. Much vigilance will be needed to ensure that other waters statewide are allocated fairly, and in accordance with not only state law but with common sense for survival of the land and all who live here. The times they are a-changin.’ MTW

Out of all the empty seats on the Maui Bus, why the fuck did you have to go and sit next to me? I can understand if the bus is crowded and/or all the other seats are filled, but what express reason made you think that sitting next to me, with your bad B.O. (or was it that item you had?) and pseudoHunter Thompson look was OK? Even when people went off and emptied seats, you still sat next to me like you had a wet dream fantasy or something.

NEWSOFTHEWEIRD OLD RHYMER Angela Pusateri, 79, may be unconventional, but, according to Jenna, 13, “She really is a cool grandmother.” The Hallandale Beach, Fla., woman is a rap-music singer with a new CD (Who’s Your Granny?) and occasional playdates, where she shows up in hockey jersey, jewels, sunglasses and baseball cap. Sample rap: “I can bring the noise better than P-Diddy / I am older and wiser, I ain’t a disguiser / I am condo commando in a high-riser, Who’s your granny?” Also, “Move over, Trick-Daddy, ‘cause this is my town / I gotta shuffleboard posse and we’re known to get down.” Actually, conceded Jenna to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel in September, “Sometimes it’s embarrassing.”

DEAD SERIOUS “In many ways,” reported the Los Angeles Times in August, the Torajans of Indonesia’s Sulawesi Island “spend a lifetime preparing for their demise,” in that the most glorious highlight of their existence appears to be planning the elaborate celebration of the end of it. In fact, taking one’s last breath is only the beginning of a lengthy tribute, such as the one for Toraja’s last king, who died in 2003 but has not been put away yet, pending completion of the necessary ritual animal sacrifices. (In the interim, the deceased is considered more “sick” than “dead.”) Said one local (“cheerfully,” according to the Times), “Torajans! (We) live to die!”

After “suspending his campaign” to address the economic crisis, McCain cancelled an appearance on Letterman—only to sit down with Katie Couric, also of CBS.

described “elite” sex workers whose impoverished, or devoutly pious, parents “dedicated” them as children to the Hindu goddess Yellamma, according to an August dispatch in The New Yorker. Despite the state’s outlawing the practice in 1982, the women’s fate as “devadasis” remains an attractive alternative to ordinary marriage (which would usually be to poor and abusive men) and provides a degree of status, in that they dress nicely and can inherit family property, while street prostitutes cannot. However, devadasis still fall victim to the region’s rampant HIV rate.

RECKLESS ABANDONMENT The Nebraska legislature’s new “safe haven” law for unwanted babies, like other states’ laws, allows them to be dropped off anonymously at hospitals to discourage abortions (and neglect by unfit parents). However, unlike other states’ laws, Nebraska’s applies not just to infants, but “minors,” because, said Sen. Tom White, “All children deserve our protection.” In September, the first two non-infants were abandoned, as exasperated parents gave up on rebellious sons aged 11 and 15, and critics say the law could apply to those up to age 19.

PEE MYSELF AND I In August, the U.S. Department of Transportation unveiled new rules for train and bus drivers returning to work from drug-use suspensions. They must now be tested first by a strip search to detect devices for cheating (such as artificial penises), and if none is found, they may re-dress themselves, but a monitor must still “directly watch the urine as it goes from the employee’s body into the collection container.” Not surprisingly, several unions have challenged the rule in court.

MAUICOUNTY

BY JACOB SHAFER JACOB@MAUITIME.COM

the Business End A look at the week’s economic winners and losers... To help make sense of the economic crisis that’s dominating the headlines, we asked local CPA Doug Levin of Levin & Hu, LLP to weigh in… So how did we get into this mess? On a smaller scale this has been happening periodically for years. The problem this time is that the extent of the bad loans is so much greater. This is primarily due to three almost simultaneous changes in the mortgage industry that started happening around the turn of the millennium. These were the sudden growth of subprime loans and exotic mortgages, as well as the lowering of interest rates by almost 3 points. The first two are now going bad at much higher rates than were predicted, and the third (with help from the first two) created an overpriced real estate market that can no longer be supported. Let’s step back for a second and discuss each of these. Subprime loans have taken most of the heat in the press, but in reality they’re only one part of the problem. These are loans to people with bad credit and little or no down payment made at a larger than average interest rate to help those making the loans cover the higher risk. The term exotic loans covers a wide variety of products including mortgages like interest only, adjustable APR and stated or even no documentation loans. Like the subprime loans, a

new segment of the population that previously couldn’t buy a house could now qualify for a loan. Finally, the lowering of interest rates gave all buyers much more buying power than they had previously. These three factors, by tremendously increasing the pool of available buyers as well as their buying power, are what drove that huge run up in home prices that occurred between 2000 and 2006. Now those same factors have reversed to calamitous results. The subprime and exotic loans went bad at a much, much higher than predicted rate, forcing the almost complete removal of these products from the marketplace. Now with so many people unable to qualify to buy a house, house prices have suffered. If you’re a bank holding any of these mortgages, you’re getting doubly worked right now. The loans are going bad much more often, and if you foreclose on the loan, the property you get is worth less than the face value of the loan. Thus banks that did a lot of mortgage lending, like Washington Mutual, have collapsed. How does what’s happening impact the average citizen, as opposed to bankers and Wall Street traders? Think 1929 all over again. Some historians have argued the entire financial collapse wouldn’t have happened then if the Federal Reserve had stepped in and saved a few banks before the huge bank run started. It’s quite possible we’re facing a similar situation. Back in college the most

KAMA’AINA SPECIAL

amazing thing I learned when I took economics was how $1,000 in one bank almost magically becomes $10,000 of capital in the community; and this rule is at the heart of why we must always step in and save banks if there’s a major problem. Here’s how this works. Banks don’t sit on that money. They are required to hold back a 10 percent reserve, but the other 90 percent is loaned out to the community. The 90 percent then gets paid to someone, who puts it in their bank, which then holds back 10 percent of the $900 deposited and loans $810 out to the community. This occurs again and again until the $1,000 is increased by a factor of ten. What’s happening now is that banks have pulled back on credit because they’re concerned about their very survival. This is bad because of the way it gains momentum in the economy. Every bank that stops lending has a tenfold effect on the community, which then forces other banks to do the same. This is what the term credit crisis means when you see it in the news. It’s a bad thing. Should Congress pass a bailout deal? In my opinion the rejection [earlier this week] was one of worst decisions that could possibly have been made, but fortunately Congress didn’t adjourn to go home (and campaign) as scheduled and have decided to stay in Washington D.C. to fix it. Here’s why we need this. If you’re a banker and you’re holding questionable mortgages as some of your assets, you’re worried sick about staying solvent. If the value of your portfolio drops any more, you’re going to go out of business. So what do you do? Well, as a protecting measure the first thing you do is pull in and stop issuing credit in your own community simply because you cannot handle any more losses. Instead you invest your

Henry Paulsen the Treasury Secretary, Ben Bernanke the Fed Chairman, the FDIC, the SEC and others are catching some hell in the press but are actually doing a stupendous job of keeping this thing from collapsing. They clearly have studied both history and economics and understand the crisis we’re in. Now we just need Congress to catch a clue and get onboard with some stiffer medicine for Wall Street. MTW

free funds in T-bills since these cannot go down. That way you just might be able to survive a further weakening of your mortgage portfolio. When banks stop lending, we all suffer. The deal that just failed would have provided a means for banks to turn their mortgage portfolios into T-bills, so they would no longer have to be concerned about going out of business. Right now they can’t do that because no one is buying mortgages. The reason the deal didn’t pass is because the average voter called their Congressional representatives like crazy over the weekend demanding they not bail out Wall Street. I think they did this for two reasons. One, they don’t realize just how important this is; and two, the press has been misleading when they say it has a $700 billion dollar price tag. The reality is the U.S. Treasury, if it’s done right, is going to make a fortune off of this. Uncle Sam is going to be trading its own debt and buying mortgages at a steep discount secured by American homes. Remember, most of those mortgages are still good and even if some of the loans are bad, they can foreclose on the house—or better yet offer terms to your average homeowner that just may allow them to stay in their home. It will not cost us, and will most likely actually help feed the Treasury if run right.

COCONUT WIRELESS THE WEEK IN REVIEW

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 24 When I left California to assume journalistic duties on Maui, I imagined I’d be dealing with a whole new slate of issues. And for the most part that’s been the case, with one unexpected exception: Both places face an ongoing, and burgeoning, illegal immigration problem. As reported in The Maui News, the feds arrested 21 undocumented workers—to use the euphemism of our time—at a Honokowai construction site. Last month, 23 illegal laborers were nabbed at the same site. Both raids were spearheaded by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency, which totally made up that name just so its acronym could be ICE. Sounding less like a government employee and more like a futuristic bounty hunter speaking in the third person, an agency rep said that “ICE will use every enforcement and investigative tool against employees and employers who fail to heed our warnings.” THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 25 Looking for a fun way to kill a little time online? How about helping Hawaii’s Department of Education slash its budget? In what is actually kind of a cool move toward transparency and open participation, the DOE is inviting the public to check out a draft of proposed cuts and weigh in with ideas and suggestions. The site (doe.k12.hi.us) will be open until 5pm September 29. After that, officials will review the input and present a finalized budget on

formative experience in my life and for that alone I owe Mr. Newman a debt of gratitude. The salad dressing is pretty good, too.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 26 Whatever your opinion of Joe Souki, the picture on the front page of today’s Maui News that shows the District 8 Rep. riding a bicycle on the newly widened Haleakala Highway is pretty awesome. Props to Joe for strapping on the helmet and taking the plunge. (And, of course, he’s wearing a lei—something that is apparently required of all Hawaii’s elected officials under state law).

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 29 Maui’s first big TVR test case has been settled. Actually, it was settled back in July, but the details were just made public. As reported in The Maui News, a California woman who was operating a four-bedroom transient rental unit in Kihei without the requisite conditional use permit agreed to pay $35,000 to put the matter to rest. That’s a chunk of change to be sure, but it’s considerably less than the $214,000 she would’ve had to cough up had she been slapped with the maximum penalty. What, if any, effect will this have on future TVR cases? Remains to be seen, but officials say they hope it’ll help serve as a deterrent.

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 27 A few impressions from the presidential debate: First and foremost, how ridiculous was it of McCain to pretend skipping the debate was somehow putting country first? This is the best—and in some cases only—opportunity many voters have to see these guys face off and present their ideological platforms. Not saying there aren’t issues with the format (more on that in a moment) but these things have become an indelible part of the process. And come on, John—do you really expect us to believe that a couple hours on a plane and a couple more at the podium were going to be the difference between a binding solution and total economic collapse? I’m sure the other 98 members of your legislative body managed to muddle on without you and your opponent for a day. Now, as for the event itself: I watched on CNN and was pretty disgusted by their whole “scorekeeping” system, which was at best a distraction and at worst a completely misleading ploy to make people think of the whole thing as a sporting event (which it sort of is, but let’s not encourage that aspect). OK, OK, enough beating around the bush (a phrase that, come to think of it, pretty well sums up Obama’s debate strategy if you capitalize the “B”): Who won? I’m calling it a draw. Both guys landed a few jabs, but no knockout blows (there I go with the sports analogies). Both were able to semi-effectively insert their stump speech applause lines. Obama stayed cool without appearing detached; McCain got riled without going into full-on Yosemite Sam mode. My guess is not many minds were changed. Now we await the Palin/Biden bout, which should at least provide some quotable non-sequiturs. Stay tuned. SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 28 RIP Paul Newman, who died yesterday at age 83. His acting and philanthropic exploits have been documented enough to not need rehashing here. Let me just say that watching Cool Hand Luke was a

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30 Boy oh boy do the corn syrup people have their eyes on the ball. Attentive readers may recall that last week we ran a photo in this space featuring Halloween candy with a caption reading, “Fear high fructose corn syrup, not razor blades.” It was in reference to a list of Halloween “safety tips” that perpetuated the paranoid, unsubstantiated myth about evil goodie-givers handing out tainted treats; really it wasn’t about corn syrup at all. But don’t tell that to Audrae Erickson, president of the Washington D.C.-based Corn Refiners Association, who fired off two separate e-mails calling me out for disseminating misinformation re: the ubiquitous sweetener. Wrote Audrae: “High fructose corn syrup, sugar and several fruit juices are all nutritionally

Corn syrup, just as bad as sugar. the same. High fructose corn syrup has the same number of calories as sugar and is handled similarly by the body.” She went on to cite some sources that didn’t look totally bogus. So, despite the fact that her role as queen of the nation’s corn peddlers makes her something less than an impartial authority on the subject, I’m willing to allow that the real problem isn’t corn syrup per se, but the massive quantities of sugar in all its forms that Americans consume (as much as 150 lbs. (!) a year according to the USDA). I now await an indignant message from Ralph P. Saccharine, CEO of the National Alliance for the Promotion of Sugar Consumption. MTW

THE

PIRATES OF PUBLIC ACCESS Akaku fights for free speech—and survival By Jacob Shafer

T

he first thing you notice is the pirate flag. Flapping defiantly on the roof of Akaku’s Kahului offices, its white-on-black skull and crossbones framed against the backdrop of the bright blue Maui sky, the iconic banner has to be a statement. And it is, though not necessarily a premeditated one. “Some of the kids put it up and I let it stay,” says Jay April, president of the community access station. “Our technical director brought it in and then he died. So it was hanging around and one day the kids said, ‘Hey can we put the flag up? Can we put the flag up?’ And I said, ‘Sure.’ So it still waves to this day.” Mounting it above the entrance might have been a spur of the moment decision, but April doesn’t discount the flag’s inherent symbolism. “The pirates challenged imperial rule,” he says. Even if they’re not sailing the high seas plundering and looting, Akaku is fighting its own swashbuckling battle against the business and government forces that want to blow community access television out of the water. Referring to mainstream commercial TV as a “cacophony of bullshit” and dismissing PBS as “the Petroleum Broadcasting System,” April says public access channels are the last vestige of truly independent media in an ocean of corporate control. “Akaku is Maui’s television station,” he says. “It’s not ours. The people of Maui own it.” That’s true in more ways than one. Much of Akaku’s programming is community generated; anyone who wants to get on the air can do so, no extensive media training or Hollywood grooming required. The station’s funding also comes from Maui’s citizens, through their cable subscriber fees. As part of its franchise agreement, Oceanic Time Warner is required to give 3 percent of its cable revenue to Akaku (a quarter of that goes to the Department of Education and Maui Community College per a 2005 agreement). Akaku makes the most of its limited resources. Operating on three channels—52, 53 and 54—its community-produced offerings range from silly to serious to sub-

lime. (One recent entry that encompasses all three: April says a Hawaiian man came in to record a soliloquy claiming Barack Obama is ineligible to become president because he was born on Hawaii, which was stolen by the U.S. and is therefore not legally a state.) The station also dedicates a portion of its programming to government affairs. It broadcasts public meetings and recently provided live coverage of the primary election, featuring updated results mixed with candidate interviews and previously recorded segments. As with much of Akaku’s programming it was lively and unfiltered, a mix of polished professionalism and off-the-cuff, rougharound-the-edges spontaneity. Though no formal training is required to get on the air, Akaku does offer classes in everything from basic camera operation to editing to studio production, plus tips on its Web site. And community involvement doesn’t end on the production side. Akaku was the first station in the country to offer an on demand, viewer programmed channel. Visit www.akaku.org, find the segment you want to see, select the next available airtime and presto—the show will appear on channel 54. April says the services they provide are of greater value in a place like Maui, where rural outliers such as Hana,

body here only works because they have full-on passion for what they do. Then you sit back and really think about it. Look at how all voices are controlled and managed. We’ve seen homogenization of media to the point where it’s all the same—we have a corporate media, there’s no other way to put it.” April calls public access channels “little beacons of uncontrolled speech.” And he believes that, however small and relatively insignificant they may be, they’re a threat. They’re unpredictable; they’re freewheeling; they’re beholden to no one but the communities they serve. They speak truth to power. Though he returns several times to the pirate analogy, April admits there’s a key difference between those maritime scofflaws and public access stations—the former actively fought the powers that be, the latter is just trying to survive. What exactly is threatening Akaku’s survival? The answer is complex and multifaceted, but the most current and serious threat stems from a ruling by the state Attorney General that could put Hawaii’s public access stations up for bid. In 2005, the Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs, the agency that oversees and regulates publicly funded entities, began to push for other service providers to be allowed to bid for the right to operate public channels. In 2006, Akaku sued and the matter

Akaku is fighting against business and government forces that want to blow community access television out of the water. Molokai and Lanai are in danger of being isolated and forgotten. “It’s a way for people to connect, particularly local people,” he says. “They tune in and see their own faces and their neighbors’ faces.” Given the diverse, trail-blazing services it provides and the high level of community involvement it fosters, you’d think Akaku would be universally celebrated. Or, at the very least, that the station would be left alone, allowed to operate without interference. You’d be wrong. “In February of 2005, Governor Lingle said that Akaku was one of the best public access stations in the United States of America,” says April. “By May of 2005 the ship almost sank because of meddling by state officials, developers and people who wanted to control this resource, to diminish the public voice.”

I

shake my head all the time and ask ‘why?’” says April, who took the helm in 2007 amid tumultuous circumstances after serving on the station’s board as vice chair. “A little channel like this, budget under $1 million a year, everything’s done on a shoestring, every-

remains in legal limbo. (Earlier this week Akaku won a significant victory when the circuit court ordered the Attorney General to unseal his 2005 opinion, the details of which had previously been kept secret.) From Akaku’s perspective, the issue essentially boils down to the old saw, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” The station is—by most any objective standard— doing an excellent job as steward of this public resource, so why change? Why open things up and allow another organization, possibly one with more nefarious intentions, to step in? “You can look at the other side of it,” April acknowledges. “What’s wrong with competition? You’re going to get the best operator if you put it out to bid, right? Well, maybe. But at the end of the day, what this means is that the person who will decide who runs public access on Maui isn’t anybody on Maui. It’s the director of the DCCA on Oahu.” April views the whole thing as a blatant takeover attempt. “What they want to do is come in here and say, ‘OK Jay, everybody who works here, all you people who have spent the last 15 to 20 years building all this social capital in the community—get out. Leave the cameras, leave the building, we’re going to decide who’s going to run it. You can apply, by the way. But you’re just going to be another applicant.’” “We are prisoners of our own success,” continues April, his voice rising. “They’re after us because we’ve succeeded at what we were supposed to do, which is empower the voices of everybody who walks through that door.” April invites the state to bring in a third party to judge whether the station is being run well. “Get the best public access consultants in the county and have them in here to create a report card, give us marks in every category you can think of,” he challenges. “We’ll be fine.”

Web Administrator Ka’eo Kepani behind the camera

Despite the daunting hurdles the station faces, April says Akaku isn’t going down without a fight. “I described it to somebody as a David versus Goliath thing,” he says. “We’re pretty good with a slingshot.”

P

ublic access programming was first mandated by the Federal Communications Commission in the 1970s. The argument was essentially that cable companies were running their wires through public land but weren’t paying rent. That “rent” was officially instituted in 1984, when Congress passed the Cable Communications Policy Act, which allowed states, counties and cities to levy franchise fees of up to 5 percent to pay for Public, Educational, Government (PEG) programming. Predictably, many cable companies have been fighting ever since to regain that small but significant slice of the pie. They’ve been joined by other interests, public and private, with a stake in curbing unfiltered free speech. The travails of Akaku are not unique; access channels across the country are struggling to survive, operating under the constant specter of direct and indirect censorship or downright annihilation. In Hawaii, where Oceanic Time Warner has operated as a de facto monopoly since it took over Kauai’s Garden Isle Telecommunications in 2002, pressure from the resident cable giant is especially strong. Some might ask: Why should I care? With all the other options out there—on the Internet as well as TV—why does it matter if a few local access channels are swallowed up by big cable? April offers an instructive metaphor, likening the media landscape to a city. The telecommunications giants are the office buildings and skyscrapers; community access is the public park. “Anything can happen in the park,” says April. “Someone might get up and deliver the Gettysburg address; someone else might piss in the bushes. But either way, you need the park.” MTW

Meat of the matter Chef Bermudez’s new steakhouse offers carnivorous delights here’s something about eating meat that is so satisfying. I get these really primal cravings that drive me to search out a macho culinary experience. It was during one of these moments that I headed to RB Black Angus Steakhouse in Kahana, Chef Raul Bermudez’s third restaurant on Maui, which opened in the newly

T

renovated Kahana Gateway location that used to be an Outback. There’s a lot of versatility at RB. You can bring the family, you can sit at the bar or you can do a romantic dinner for two. The dimly lit dinning room is enhanced with dark wood, highlighted by white tablecloths topped in white butcher paper. Kids are welcome. It doesn’t have to be a fancy event, it can be a casual dinner out—the difference is getting to eat Chef Bermudez’s creations, which set this steakhouse apart. Chef Bermudez happens to be a local boy from the west side, and that

lends a unique perspective to the restaurant and its extensive menu. There are appetizers, salads, soups, a multitude of different meats, cuts and preparations and a terrific dessert menu. There was going to be a lot for my stomach to process so my strategy was to take my time. The big surprise on the menu for me was the escargot appetizer, served with toasted hot bread and a delicious aioli. Chef Bermudez personally recommended that dish and it was so good I haven’t stopped thinking about it since. Another rich and satisfying pupu is the lobster fritters served with both a creamy and a spicy dipping sauce. I love that the dinner menu allows you to create your own meal. You choose your meat and cut, choose any sauces and preparations with it, and select your sides. Those who want an alternative can opt for seafood, pork or chicken. But this is Maui’s first certified Black Angus steak house, in fact the first in the state, so I’d recommend giving the beef a try. Certified Black

Angus beef is the cream of the crop, representing less than 8 percent of the U.S. beef market. What that means to you and me is a really tender, juicy, properly aged, flavorful piece of meat. I had the New York cut served medium rare with asparagus and a baked potato. The potato comes trimmed with whatever you like from butter to sour cream to chives. It was very high quality, completely delicious. Although quite full, I still ordered coffee and chocolate cake, offering a sweet conclusion to my carnivorous night.

Genius. Some of use can’t stomach Manhattans or dirty martinis. Then again, the sticky alterna-tinis—appletinis, chocotinis and the like—can approach the taste of cough medicine mixed with high fructose corn syrup and food coloring. The first I have seen of its kind, the ginger martini offers a slight bite and only hints at sugariness with its sugared rim and the cube of crystallized ginger that serves as a garnish. Sour mix and triple sec balance each other out as not to overpower the ginger juice or the vodka. My friend Sarah says it tastes like ginger ale. I concur.

NONI/GINGER/PAPAYA SOAP Hawaiian Herbal Blessings, Islandwide I’ve seen it in other places, but tracked it down at Alice in Hulaland in Paia. This Maui-made soap has a clean, sweet but not nausea-inducing scent. The noni aspect may throw you off, especially if you’ve ever tasted noni juice. Yuck. (Yeah, yeah, yeah, miracle fruit, etc.) But the noni is included in the formula here for topical purposes, as it is said to have healing and/or soothing properties.

Ginger root is said to be something of a cure-all and is used to treat nausea, inflammation and everything in between. Turmeric is a widely used natural remedy for inflammation as well, so mixed with ginger it makes a pretty powerful tonic. It doesn’t taste bad, either. It’s not exactly ginger ale, but the two herbs together pack a decent—but not too strong—bite. Plus it’s one of the most vibrantly hued things you can get that wasn’t made in a laboratory.

been) as that of art, and specifically music. While early navigators had the stars, primitive maps and perhaps a compass to guide them, musicians have scales, instruments, form and inspiration. And while seafarers had deadly storms and ornery sea creatures to contend with, musicians have economic and cultural climates that often do not favor those who have the guts to be original. Honolulu-based punk/ska/reggae band Black Square, which will play two

shows on Maui this weekend, is aware of this parallel; their latest album Onward features a tattoo-like rendering of a 19th century clipper ship. “The clipper sailing ship to us represented a metaphor for new discovery and a swift and direct route to something new,” says Josh86, the band’s guitar player and lead vocalist. Black Square formed in 2002 as a three-piece with Josh86 on guitar and lead vocals, Nick Danger on bass and Little Brian Kim on drums. They were essentially hardcore, but they borrowed elements of reggae and punk rock and later added a horn section. The band derived its name from Russian painter Kasimir Malevich’s 1915 painting of a black square and Suprematism, the art movement it inspired. Suprematism’s thrust is that a work of art is less important than the response it invokes in the observer. Josh86 relates the obscurity, uniqueness and ambiguity of Malevich’s black square to the band’s style. “We hope for our music to be something that people can listen to without needing to categorize into a genre,” Josh

Featuring daily breakfast and dinner specials Big Wave offers a unique blend of casual American cuisine blended with contemporary island flavors.

86 said. “We want them to hear our message and respond, react and be affected by it.” Nearly every track on Black Square’s third release harbors a message of social consciousness, though each holds down a different front. “Change,” Onward’s eighth track, for example, asks, “where the punk rockers/where the protesters/where the rebelers and where the song singers?” Incredibly melodic and assisted by harmony as well as call and response, the song urges the listener to talk politics, write a poem, do something other than pretend thinking is uncool. Track one, titled “Ego,” looks inward: “I lie to myself to pick up the slack/I’m afraid of who I’ll be when no one is around.” While the band’s lyrics are brutally honest—even when they get surreal as they do in sea-shantyesque “Virgin Glance”—the message and instrumentation are wholly optimistic and bright.

Even the tunes that unfold in a minor key are upbeat. When Josh86 sings about crack dealers and hookers in “China Town,” the sunny walking bass line and reggae-inspired guitar upstrokes make you want to sway. Black Square has come to Maui four times in the past two years; this time they make the trip with new bass player Kat. Haiku-based Order of the White Rose will open the show with a set of hard-hitting, political punk rock. Let’s all raise our glasses, brimming with rum, to the hope that Maui will prove a safe harbor for Black Square as they venture onward. MTW

Unintelligent design Anti-religion doc winds up in purgatory n their already-controversial documentary, talk show host Bill Maher and Borat director Larry Charles travel the globe in order to undo and belittle everything involving religion. But rather than fully explore a complex sub-

Benefit Golf Tournament Presented by our Title Sponsor

Religulous

★★★★★ Rated R/101 min.

Sunday, October 12, 2008 Makena NORTH Golf Course Shotgun Start at 7:30 a.m. Lunch at the Maui Prince Hotel • Four Player Teams • Modified Scramble • Golf Contests & Competitions • Auction & Door Prizes

GREAT PRIZES including a 2008 Ford EDGE and much, much more!

ject, this frustrating film goes for pat answers and easy laughs. Charles goes the Michael Moore route and inserts jokey film clips between the interviews, just in case Maher, the undisputed King of Snark, doesn’t have you in stitches. A running joke on how Maher really isn’t that funny or talented only underlines how a better host or comedian could have made so much more of the opportunities presented. Maher is in good form on his HBO show Real Time; here he’s sometimes subdued, but mostly just smug and out of his element discussing theology. I frequently had answers to Maher’s pointed ques-

tions that he and his loopy interview subjects seemed to miss (some pretty practical stuff, really) and a number of the “facts” he brings up aren’t true (whether you believe he was the son of God or merely a politically driven carpenter, Jesus Christ was indeed a real person). A smarter movie would approach the positive and negative aspects of religious faith with sharp probing but without mockery. (Unlike Traitor, here’s a movie that makes total monsters out of Muslims and, for that matter, anyone who believes in God.) Occasionally, this long, tacky doc makes thoughtful points that support Maher’s declaration of “doubt,” but most of his goofy interview subjects have no grasp on who they are, let alone what they believe. It’s one thing to demonize religion, which is what the film is after. But Charles’s film falls apart at the end, when the lighthearted tone is abruptly replaced by a ridiculously heavy-handed epilogue that derails the entire movie. On top of Maher declaring “religion must die,” you get an angry montage of mushroom clouds and, for no reason and to the movie’s shame, a shot of the Challenger space shuttle exploding. This touch, I felt, went completely over the line and, unlike the rest of the film’s dime store blasphemy, was beyond tasteless. The movie is preaching to its choir (fed up atheists) but instead of illuminating, the result is insulting to anyone’s intelligence. MTW

MOVIECAPSULES

BY KATE BRADSHAW CALENDAR@MAUITIME.COM

Maui Film Festival’s Candlelight Cinema

give up on his marriage when he finds that...okay, I’ll let you guess what happens here. 122 min.

EVERYBODY WANTS TO BE ITALIAN - R - Art, Foreign - A dude is obsessed with his ex, even though she is married with three children. Somehow this is tied in with Italian culture. 93 min.

GHOST TOWN - PG13 - Comedy - The Office (UK) and Extras star Ricky Gervais stars as a dude who dies on the operating tabble for seven minutes. When he is revived he is able to see and communicate with the dead, which ends up being kind of a pain in the ass. 102 min.

New This Week

THE HOUSE BUNNY - PG13 - Comedy - A recently-ousted Playboy Bunny somehow ends up living among a sorority of dumpy girls. Determined to bestow hotness upon them, she learns a few lessons of her own. Hmmm. 97 min.

AN AMERICAN CAROL - PG-13 Comedy - An ultra-liberal film director (your basic Michael Moore caricature played by Kevin Farley) gets visited by three ghosts while he tries to have the Fourth of July holiday abolished. That is so 2004. And at least our satire doesn’t need to rely on tired secondhand story lines. 83 min. APALOOSA - R - Drama - Two men of the law who happen to be romantic rivals (played by Ed Harris and Viggo Mortensen) must work together to help their town overcome some kind of crisis. 96 min. BEVERLY HILLS CHIHUAHUAS - PG Comedy - A film that just absolutely needed do be made (didn’t it?) involving a spoiled chihuahua named Chloe who gets lost while on vacation in Mexico and sets out to try to find her way home. 91 min. BLINDNESS - R - Thriller - A disease that causes victims to go blind is spreading. A small group of rebels bands together and is led presumably to freedom by a woman (Julianne Moore) who is only pretending to be blind. 118 min. FLASH OF GENIUS - PG13 - Drama - On of those inspirational David and Goliath deals that’s based on a true story. This one involves an innovation that the auto industry suppressed due to its potential implications for the biz. 119 min. HOW TO LOSE FRIENDS AND ALIENATE PEOPLE - R - Comedy Based on Toby Young’s memoir of the same title, this film charts a disillusioned writer’s descent into the world of celebrity and glamor when he takes a job at a shallow magazine. 110 min. NICK AND NORAH’S INFINITE PLAYLIST - PG13 - Comedy - Anything with Michael Cera is a pretty safe bet. Two music geeks inadvertently end up having the most insane night of their lives after Cera’s character asks a random girl (Kat Denning), to be his girlfriend for five minutes to make his ex jealous. 90 min. RELIGULOUS - R - Comedy - Bill Maher examines the ridiculousness of various belief systems (which often readily lend themselves to comedy) in a rational way. 101 min.

IGOR - PG - Animation - A twist on classic monster tales, this flick tells the story of a young mad scientist’s assistant who is aspiring to overcome his fate and become an evil scientists himself. Only, the super monster he attempts to make doesn’t turn out the way he thought it would. John Cusack, John Cleese, and Steve Buscemi provide a few character voices. 86 min. LAKEVIEW TERRACE - R - Thriller - A young couple attempts to find bliss in their new suburban home only to find that their new neighbor, a severe cop played by Samuel L. Jackson, is one bad mothafucka. 110 min. MIRACLE AT ST. ANNA - R - Drama - This, the latest Spike Lee joint, follows four African American soldiers during WWII who get trapped behind enemy lines while in Italy. They cross every boundary imaginable - abstract or otherwise - in order to save a young Italian boy. 145 min. MY BEST FRIEND’S GIRL - R - Comedy - So basically, a dude (Jason Biggs) is a bit too into the chick he’s been dating (Kate Hudson), who as a result dumps him. Dude then calls on a friend who is an expert at driving girls back into the arms of their exes. Creepy. 101 min. NIGHTS IN RODANTHE - PG13 - Drama Devotees of sappy romantic what-have-yous rejoice! This flick depicts an unlikely pair - half of which is married - that ends up stuck riding a storm out together in North Carolina. Richard Gere and Diane Lane star. 97 min. RIGHTEOUS KILL - R - Drama - DeNiro and Pacino team up once again to play a pair of aging cops on the trail of a serial killer who goes after criminals who have fallen through the cracks of the justice system. 101 min. TROPIC THUNDER - R - Comedy - The cast of a ‘Nam flick in-the-making finds itself having to go from fantasy to reality after a series of mishaps. Plenty of room for brilliant satire. 106 min. THE WOMEN - PG13 - Drama - A bunch of hot, catty high society women talk about shopping and men. Plot strikes when one of said men gets caught cheating. 114 min.

Now Showing BURN AFTER READING - R - Comedy With films like Raising Arizona, The Big Lebowski and No Country for Old Men under the Coen Brothers’ belt it’s hard not to get one’s hopes up for this one. The cast, which includes John Malkovich, Brad Pitt and Tilda Swinton, also raises the bar. The premise: two bonehead gym employees stumble upon a draft of a former CIA agent’s memoirs, then attempt extortion. 97 min.

THIS WEEK’S

PICKS

Romancing the slacker

No ‘Stairway’? Denied!

Thursday (Oct 2), 7pm, Ka Lama 103

Friday (Oct 3), 5pm, Market St, Wailuku

If you’re like most people, you keep a list of your Ten Favorite Canadians on your person at all times, and you update it each month. Neil Young and Joni Mitchell have held steady at the top of my TFC list for as long as I can remember, and Michael Moore usually holds a spot somewhere between seven and nine. Moore’s free distribution of his latest film, Slacker Uprising, catapults him to my #5 spot this month (after Seth Rogan and Geddy Lee). The film, which Maui Peace Action will screen Thursday night, features speeches by Moore as well as performances by Eddie Vedder, R.E.M., Joan Baez and others. It documents Moore’s drive to register Americans aged 18-29 to vote just ahead of the 2004 election…Okay, so we still got ripped off again that year, but let’s not get too discouraged this time around, eh? Free.

So, why should you come to the Maui Time Weekly Rock Band Party? Well, why shouldn’t you? The consensus among MTW moms is that the staff here is the coolest, bestlooking, smartest and funniest alt-weekly staff in the whole school. Plus we have awesome video games. Come try a hand at Rock Band. It’s kinda-sorta like playing in a real band, except not. The rocking will take place in the courtyard of our building at 33 Market St. in Wailuku. This month’s MTW Rock Band Challenge: if you hit every one of Geddy’s Lee’s high notes on “Today’s Tom Sawyer” I will buy you a Pabst. Hazah! As if you needed another reason to head to Get Wailuku on First Friday. Free.

Nothin’ but the breast

Dispatches from the Motherland

Friday (Oct 3), 10pm, Hard Rock Café, Lahaina

Friday (Oct 3), 10pm, Casanova, Makawao

Think that every time you buy something pink you’re helping in the fight against breast cancer? Not so, according to thinkbeforeyoupink.org. For example, you may buy a Lean Cuisine because of the pink ribbon on the box (I mean, seriously, why else would you?), but when you get the thing home you discover that you actually have to buy a pink Lean Cuisine “lunch tote” from the company’s Web site before they will give your money to the cause. This month, Hard Rock Café Maui is holding a series of shows in the hope of raising $10,000 for the breast cancer division of the Pacific Cancer Foundation (a Mauibased nonprofit). Tonight’s goal is to raise $500. Kihei’s Byron Brown and the Derelicts, whose funky sound is a must-hear, will play with support from Guerilla Jazz. $8.

What do you associate with the word “marimba”? I imagine equatorial breezes, fried plantains and the Dark and Stormy, a drink that involves concentrated ginger and rum. But that’s my lack of knowledge on the instrument and its history talking. According to Marimba.org, the instrument originated in South Africa, and is believed to have once consisted of a hole in the ground overlaid with wooden bars that were struck with sticks; a far cry from the rosewood and brass that now typically constitutes the instrument and its sound. Anyway, Kenyan-born singer Zuni and her nine-piece marimba band Mapenzi (which is both Zimbabwean for “crazy” and East African for “love”) will heat up Casanova with their bouncy, bright tunes. This is definitely one for the Little Beach crowd (note: wear clothes). $10

You haven’t exactly pulled the sword from the stone. You have good reason to be proud of your accomplishments, but expecting them to be celebrated through the ages isn’t exactly realistic. In fact, dwelling on them overmuch will only keep you from doing more great stuff. Stop waiting for recognition that you may never receive. Most people aren’t likely to notice how awesome this stuff is, or why it’s awesome. You could spend time educating them, or simply accomplishing more cool shit that’ll also probably do a lot more good than it ever gets credit for. One option serves your ego, one serves the world. Guess which one I’m hoping you’ll choose?

SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) Your recent efforts have fallen short of brilliance because they’ve either been great ideas with crappy execution, or decent concepts with fantastic follow-through. Obviously, the only way you’ll manifest the genius you’re capable of is if you take the time to refine your design before you put it into play. Make sure your idea is good! Then ensure that you put in the time and make the effort to really do it justice. For months now you’ve more or less slacked on one or the other. Perhaps you’re taking on too much? Whatever the reason, give yourself the time and space to ensure that you’ll do both right this week.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) The greatest gift you could give right now is the benefit of the doubt. The person you’re being so careful of isn’t as fragile as you think; in fact, they’re probably getting a bit bored at your overly ginger treatment of them. You can’t have a relationship of equals unless the other person is actually your equal, and you’ll never figure that out if you don’t give them an opportunity to step up and prove themselves. Take a step back, even if that means there’s a risk that someone might fail or suffer because of it. That’s also the only way they’ll have a chance to step out of your shadow and shine as you always hoped they could.

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) The missing ingredient here is joy. So much of your life is doing what you think “you have to do.” The reality is you have more choice than you allow yourself to believe. Even if you let yourself consider the alternatives, I feel pretty sure that in most cases you’d choose as you do. Since what you’re up to is really for the greater good in your life, can’t you consciously choose to do it with more joy than you’ve been demonstrating recently? When all of your life starts to feel like one endless obligation, something’s wrong. Either free yourself, or acknowledge that you’re more or less where you want to be, and just be happy, already.

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) You’re pretty competitive, but sometimes you allow your competitive spirit to get channeled in traditional, unimaginative, and ultimately unproductive ways. I know there’s a certain level of satisfaction in roundly trouncing someone and achieving something through intelligent decisions, determination and raw talent. However, instead of focusing so much on being better than someone, or “beating” them somehow, can you be more visionary in how you channel this impulse? Perhaps focus on being more loving, more generous, or simply having more fun than everyone around you? That kind of game rocks; when you win, everyone benefits.

NEW LOCATION ACROSS FROM MANA FOODS 62 BALDWIN AVENUE, UNIT 2C, PAIA

PAIA • 579-8979

PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) Go on, laugh at yourself. So much of what you’re up to is potentially embarrassing, but only if you get caught up in ego bullshit you’ve mostly evolved beyond. So what if you make a fool of yourself? It’ll be funny, and if you can have fun doing it, more power to you. Worrying about your image is not something that usually inhibits you, so what’s the problem now? Oh, you’re worried about what one person in particular will think about you. I get it now. Well, it ought to help to know that the less seriously you take yourself, the more endearing that person will find you.

Please call for appointment

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Stop barking up the wrong tree. The person you’re interested in actually doesn’t know you exist and wouldn’t be all that impressed if you forced your way into their awareness. You’re just in different worlds, and if you’re honest with yourself, a lot of their appeal is their unavailability. Perhaps you just need something to fixate on, but there are quite simply better things for you to obsess over; this particular one isn’t worth your time and energy. It’s alright to be a little focused and driven, but you might want to channel your attention in a direction that will ultimately do you some good. Right now you might as well be throwing it into a bottomless pit out of which nothing will ever emerge.

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Forget all your other goals for a while. Most of them need to ripen before you can see them progress. In the meantime, while you’re waiting, attend to the most noble and pleasurable pursuit available to you right now: making people laugh. You’re in a great position to bring more joy, levity, and laughter to most situations right now; please exercise it. People are feeling tense and need that kind of lightness. It’s more important than making progress or money. A chuckle trumps a buck right now; it may not actually make you richer, but it’ll make you feel richer.

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22)

Empowering Hawaiians, Strengthening Hawai‘i

30

I’d like to think kindness, sensitivity, confidence, and a sense of humor can compensate for virtually any shortcomings as far as superficial crap like appearance or financial status. I think most of the time, with all but the most shallow and judgmental of people, they do. Unfortunately, you don’t always get a chance to show them off. All too often, people don’t get to see that stuff about you. Luckily, this week, you’ll have more opportunities than usual to show off that there’s more to you than your looks or the thickness of your wallet, to exactly the person or people who’d appreciate that most.

Paranoid, much? Sometimes you just get into this mood where no one can win, not even you. When someone smiles at you across the room, you assume they’re having a chuckle at your expense, not that they find you adorable. You’re smart and experienced enough to recognize this negative filter as pure selfsabotage, but you’re not always able to ditch it accordingly. Thus I encourage you to enlist the aid of your most consistently happy friend this week. Let them be the filter that cancels out yours, and point out when you’re being ridiculous. Hopefully, that’ll help you keep self-torture to a minimum.

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) An ego-bruised Leo is never a pretty sight. Unfortunately, when your ego is as big as most Leos’ are, then it’s fairly hard for some people to avoid bumping into it occasionally. Accept that unless you achieve rock star status, most people will never quite think you’re as special as you think you are, even if they do consider you pretty great. Some people will learn to handle you, by humoring you a bit, and giving you more attention. Your ego is a tremendous source of power and shine, so I don’t think you need to work on suppressing or ditching it, but making it a little less bruisable seems to be in order.

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) When you’re juggling this many puzzle pieces, things could either work out really well (i.e. they all fall perfectly into place, revealing the heretofore obscured big picture), or tumble into absolute chaos and disaster. This is quite an ambitious setup you’ve created for yourself. I admire your vision and courage, but I worry what will happen to you if you’re not able to pull it off. I believe it’s quite possible you will, but I don’t want you to fall apart if your plan does. I’d like to think that you’ll be able to pick up most of the pieces and carry on and create something good, anyway, even if it’s not quite the masterpiece you’d hoped for. This week, see if you can set yourself up to do just that.
