I was excited to see the cover of your recent “music issue” of Maui Time, however was extremely disappointed when I realized that you were only covering a couple of local artists while highlighting Kool and the Gang, Styx and Mark Farina. None of those groups are Maui based and just happen to be performing here around the time of this issue. It seems like it was an easy way to hit the press with something to read, instead of a solid effort to help the people of Maui learn about some of our many talented local artists. Next year, maybe focus on those musicians who live here and work hard to earn a living and entertain locals and visitors alike. Jason White, submitted online at Ed. Note: Thanks for the feedback, Jason. Just to set the record straight: a

“couple” is usually defined as “two”; in the music issue, we profiled five Maui groups/musicians who were playing gigs that week in addition to the three big name out-of-town acts you referenced. Are there more local musicians deserving of coverage? Sure. And we’ll continue to do our best to seek them out.

OIL THINGS CONSIDERED Re the recent Rob Report [“Palm oil salesmen,” October 16]: Prices of palm biodiesel from South East Asia (SEA) would land in Hawaii at $150 per Barrel by today’s price— in fact biodiesel prices in SEA are now below the price of diesel. Soy based biodiesel could also be an option from US or Argentina. There are other options also like FAME from Singapore that would be a mixture of different types of biodiesel made from by-products of the palm industry. Why are these options not being considered? It is time that consumers and environmentalists take another look at the trade-offs as clearly palm oil is the highest yielding oil crop per acre and requires the least fertilizers and pesticides. Also, many consumers ignore the fact that a palm oil plantation can last 25 years or more with trees that range from 5 to 9 meters tall. Many plantations have been planted on timbered land i.e. land that has been used for lumber export rather than simply for clearing palm plantation. The largest culprit of de-forestation remains the lumber industry which buys wood indiscriminately to manufacture furniture in China and Vietnam that is bought by consumers without regard for its origins. Henri J. Bardon, submitted online at Rob responds: Mr. Bardon is Managing Director of Vertical Asia PTE Ltd. of Singapore, a subsidiary of Vertical UK LLP, one of the largest global traders in ethanol and biodiesel. As a purveyor, it is clear that he is more concerned with price than widespread ecological impacts, which he terms “trade-offs.” Hawaii doesn’t need to tie itself to another imported fuel, no matter the price. The idea that palm oil imports will one day lead to local production of biodiesel crops is a long shot, given local economics and limited resources such as water. I don’t disagree that illegal logging is devastating rainforests in Southeast Asia. But if that really concerns Mr. Bardon and the palm oil industry, I’d love to see him join the desperate fight for rainforest conservation, a project undertaken by many worthwhile organizations, including an effort launched by Prince Charles, with limited success.

Ain’t no sunshine Citizens challenge County Council’s handling of Wailea 670 rezoning ast Friday an important gathering was convened in Judge Joseph Cardoza’s Circuit courtroom. It was the final meeting of the evidentiary hearing spearheaded by five South Maui residents who believe their right to open participation in the planning process was hindered by the Maui County Council. Attorney Lance Collins, representing the concerned citizens, maintained that Hawaii’s provision for open meetings—aka the Sunshine Law—was not heeded when the Council’s Land Use Committee considered rezoning of the Wailea 670/Honua`ula project proposal. The proposed development of 670 acres in arid South Maui for a private golf course, 1,400 housing units and amenities is perhaps the most divisive community issue councilmembers have handled this term. Wailea 670 hearings considered a myriad of possible project impacts, and proposed mitigations, over months of continued committee meetings.


Collins added that the law provides that the definition of open meetings “shall be liberally construed,” that there are strict limits on communications outside of meetings (so members cannot “caucus” privately) and that public notice of rescheduled meetings must take place at least six days in advance. While there is a provision based on a 1985 amendment to allow a meeting to be continued for a reasonable time, he asserted there is nothing in legislative history or supported by law Opponents of Wailea 670 say the Land Use Committee blotted out the Sunshine Law. “to continue a continued meeting, and so on.” Thus, his clients’ interest in providsure.” The transcript shows that Collins intervenors.” The “few trees” reference ing new testimony were foreclosed by asked, “Are you claiming lack of awarerelated to Cardoza’s initial handling of the “serial continuation of meetings, the ness or understanding of the law as your the case; he issued a temporary injuncmarathon sessions.” He asked that as a defense in this case?” tion to keep the project from moving forremedy, the actions of the committee be Molina again answered, “Not sure.” ward, based upon his assessment that voided, at least back to the October 18, the suit had sufficient merit. 2007 meeting that ultimately spanned Corporation Counsel attorney Mary he decision to continue meetings over many days without re-posting the agenda or allowing new testimony apparently was not based upon a written legal opinion, but on a 2004 email response from the Office of Information Practices.

The proposed development of 670 acres in South Maui is perhaps the most divisive issue councilmembers have handled this term. Public testimony was allowed at only a handful of nearly 30 total meetings considering Wailea 670 zoning requests. But Land Use Committee Chair Michael Molina routinely recessed and reconvened meetings— including a stretch of a dozen meetings last October and November— without re-posting an agenda or allowing new testimony. This action, Collins maintains, did not uphold the spirit and intent of the Sunshine Law to conduct governmental proceedings “as openly as possible.” “In a democracy,” Collins said, addressing Cardoza by quoting the Hawaii state statute, “the people are vested with the ultimate decision-making power. Governmental agencies exist to aid the people in the formation and conduct of public policy. Opening up the governmental processes to public scrutiny is the only viable and reasonable method of protecting the public’s interest.”




OCTOBER 23, 2008




What’s the biggest issue you want to tackle? The economy and jobs. We already see where people that have been laid off are hurting. Construction jobs right now are lacking. If we build 100 percent affordable housing, houses that are $250,000 and below, and also rentals, we can [create] construction as well as provide the kind of housing that people in Maui need. I’m done with high-end housing that is sucking up water and using our precious resources.

the same way a millionaire [does].


Talk about water use as it relates to development. We can’t develop without more water. Why should we build million dollar homes? If we’re going to use water, [the priority should be] affordable [housing] for people that live here, work here, that are living two, three, even four families in a house. We can free up probably three to four million gallons in Kihei alone; seventy percent of the water that is being used from the Iao aquifer is used for irrigation purposes. [We need to] use water coming from a reclamation plant, create an alternative water line and find out where some of the users are— condominiums use up a lot of water, hotels use a lot of water. [The other issue] is conservation. Hotels, businesspeople and residents have got to work together.

In your previous council stint, you had a reputation as someone who voted “no.” In these tough times, don’t you think the answer has to be not “no,” but “how”? Yes. If you look at the record of Wayne Nishiki, you will see that I voted [yes] on things the community needed: fire stations, police stations, youth centers, senior centers, affordable housing projects. It’s not that Wayne Nishiki is against anything, it’s that Wayne Nishiki cares about the people of Maui County. For me, yes, it’s questioning any project that comes in. I’m not a dummy; I’m not a clone. I’m an independent voice that hasn’t taken any money from developers. No developer is going to come into my office. I’m sorry, that’s not how I operate.

What can be done at the council level to achieve progress with regard to renewable energy? In the presidential election, it doesn’t matter if Barack wins or the Republican candidate wins, we’re going to see 5 million jobs being created in the energy field. The cost of oil is so [high] now, we’ve seen all kinds of companies going in and trying to develop energy sources. One can be solar, one can be wind, one can be ocean. But we’ve got to really put an emphasis on developing these sources.

Choose one: the environment or the economy? I’m going to have to pick the environment. If we don’t have pristine oceans, if we don’t have beautiful sunsets and sunrises, if we don’t have people that are so nice and so respectful of one another—that’s the reason why people come. That’s the reason why people are so nice and soft here. Once you start throwing down concrete, you will see people also turn hard. I don’t want to see this for Maui County.


OCTOBER 23, 2008

★ What’s the biggest issue you want to tackle? It was water, now it’s the economy. But they both go hand-in-hand.

Big picture, where do you stand on the water issue? The county needs to have control of all the water systems on Maui. I know that’s a very hard thing to do, there are a lot of private systems out there. But water is one of those things like roads—it’s something the county needs to take control of. [Otherwise] you can get foreign countries starting to buy up all the water systems and then who knows who knows what’s going on? Water is an essential thing for people to live, and so it should be a government function. [With regard to conservation]: A better solution [than usage restrictions] would be to have a stiffer tiered system for water rates. Money is a huge incentive for people. If it’s going to cost them a lot to use a lot more water than they should, they’re going to conserve. You can do it commercially as well. If you make it very expensive to have your lush green trees, and resorts want to say, that’s out cost of doing business, we’ll pay it, we’re going to get extra money so we can put it back into our [water] infrastructure.

With the Maui Time endorsement up for grabs, County Council candidates Wayne Nishiki and Don Couch weigh in on the issues…

What’s your take on Wailea 670? Lehman Brothers was heavily involved with 670; we’ve seen the crash of Lehman Brothers, so I really don’t see 670 coming back again. But you need to ask Charlie Jenks, who gave Don Couch a campaign donation, whether it’s coming back. The development itself had no water, so why did the council even continue having discussion on it? We were also told that the [affordable housing] was going to be put in the light industrial area. As someone born and raised here, dignity is really important for me. I don’t want to see the affordables in [that area], and then the million dollar homes being put on the hill. I put on my pants



Should the Maui County Visitors Bureau be funded at its current level of $3.8 million? Less? More? Why? This has been an argument every year. There’s no real quantitative way to determine whether or not we are getting our


money’s worth. I think we are, but I’d like to see more accountability. Right now, 40 percent of Maui’s economy is tourism. Businesses are closing down because we’re not getting tourists. Until we can wean ourselves from tourism and make not as huge a portion of our economy we still have to make sure that we get some tourists. I’d like to see some more measurements for MVB. But we’ve got to compete for tourist dollars. I’d say [keep the funding] level. I certainly wouldn’t increase it at this point because we can’t keep increasing all kinds of things; we need to be a little bit more careful about where we spend our money. What can the county do to ensure food security? I’d like to be able to say let’s get some community gardens going, let’s get some agriculture going. I started out saying that, but then started talking to the farmers. The problem with farming here on Maui is it costs more to grow something here than it does for somebody to grow it on Oahu, grow it in Brazil and fly it here. [Additionally], the average of our farmers is about 60 years old. Their sons and daughters are not going into farming. Yes, there’s some good organic farmers coming up, but to compete with Oahu is killing us. I’d love to see [community gardens] succeed and I will help them succeed as much as possible. You’ve accepted campaign contributions from developers; your opponent hasn’t. Can you honestly tell voters that you’re as likely as your opponent to be independent and stand up to the development community? Certainly. When you’re in politics you have to be able to eat the guy’s lunch and then vote against him. I have no problem with that; I’ve told them that. I said that what this does is get a candidate in there that will at least hear you, open the door. But [even] if you haven’t given me anything I’ll hear what you have to say. That’s the type of candidate I am; I’ll hear from anybody. My opponent is not. He will not hear from certain segments of the community. Choose one: the environment or the economy? The environment is the economy. If we don’t have a clean environment our economy’s going to go down. [But] they can live together. From when I got here 18 years ago to now there have been some drastic changes and those changes have to be mitigated. MTW WANT TO HEAR MORE? Go to for election podcasts.



Here comes the sun Harnessing Hawaii’s renewable energy resource illions of visitors have marveled at Maui’s dominant landscape feature, the Haleakala Crater, which stands 10,000 feet above sea level and is known as the House of the Sun. It is there, according to Hawaiian mythology, that the demigod Maui lassoed the sun to slow it down, to allow his mother’s tapa cloth to dry. Though abundant sunshine continues to grace our islands, solar energy may be the most underutilized of an array of abundant local resources. Solar photovoltaic systems represent barely a blip on the screen of statewide electricity production, though nearly 10,000 solar hot water systems help offset energy consumption. The legislature recently passed the “Solar Rooftops” bill that will mandate such systems on all new homes constructed after 2009. But, other than a recent proposal for a 1.5-megawatt (MW) project on the island

Watching the Watch


When I first took over this column, I confess I questioned whether people really cared. Sure, here’s a government agency that’s inconsistent in its rulings and actions, lacks transparency and often fails to live up to both the spirit and practical purposes for which it was created. Add it to the freakin’ list, I thought.

“Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting...” so let’s quit burning oil. heat and focus it on pipes running through the installation. Inside the pipes, heat absorbing liquids are super heated to 600 degrees by the sun which in turn heat water boilers that drive steam turbines to produce electricity. Additionally, liquid

generated electricity, according to the Natural Renewable Energy Lab, will create 3,400 construction jobs, 250 permanent jobs, and $500 million in tax revenues.” The economic benefits should not be lost on a state that has the highest electric

Whether the promise of solar energy can rise above the politics and economics of Hawaii remains to be seen. of Lanai, there has been little effort to consider large installations of Solar Electrical Generating Systems (SEGS). In 1992, a detailed Hawaii study concluded, “The base case economic analysis finds that SEGS plants do not currently appear to be a [sic] cost-effective solar applications for the State of Hawaii.” Yet the analysis was made when a barrel of crude oil, Hawaii’s primary electrical generation source, cost around $22. Last year, Maui Sierra Club and Democratic Party Chair Lance Holter, frustrated with Hawaiian Electric Company’s (HECO) and subsidiary Maui Electric Company’s (MECO) insistence on proposing palm oil biodiesel for generating electricity, set out to identify better options. His research turned up the Solana Generating Station project in Southern Arizona, whose 280megawatt output will make it the world’s largest solar installation. The project plans to use a technology that has been available for years, Concentrated Solar Thermal Power. Parabolic mirrors capture the sun’s

salts can be heated to 400-500 degrees and stored, meaning that electricity can be produced well after the sun has set, thus providing a “firm” power source. The company behind the Solana proposal in Arizona, Abengoa Solar Inc. of Denver, Colorado, will be sending representatives to Maui and Hawaii next week. Holter is helping arrange meetings with state and county utility and elected officials. The Sierra Club-Maui Group will also sponsor a public presentation on Tuesday, October 28, 6:30-9:00pm, at the Kihei Community Center. Holter was intrigued that the project expects to provide 1,500-2,000 construction jobs, with 85-100 employees thereafter. He directed me to a quote from Fred Krupp’s new book, Earth: The Sequel. Krupp, who has headed the Environmental Defense Fund for 23 years, wrote: “The economic benefits of Solar farming are impressive. A 2006 study…found that solar thermal plants create twice as many jobs as coal and gas plants and produce eight times the retained revenues in the states in which they are located. Each gigawatt of solar thermal-

rates in the nation and sends some $6 billion out of the state yearly to import fuel. Van Jones’s book, The Green Collar Economy/How One Solution Can Fix Two Problems, recently hit number 12 on the New York Times bestseller list. Krupp, speaking about Jones’s book, said, The Green Collar Economy is a both a rallying call and a road map for how we can save the planet, reduce our dependency on budget-busting fossil fuels and bring millions of new jobs to America. Van Jones shows how climate solutions can turbo charge the ailing U.S. economy. So what are we waiting for?”

So it’s both heartening and reassuring when we pull the column because of space issues and I’m flooded with missives from readers (OK, not flooded— I got three) wanting to know what’s up. My favorite was from “Uncle Rummie” in Kahului, who had this to say: “Where the hell is El Cee?!? [Love the way he spelled it out; we might have to start aping that.] Please tell me you didn’t run it because you didn’t have room & not because you’re trying to claim those assholes didn’t do something. Come on, I know somewhere out there some club or bar got slapped for some shit they didn’t deserve.” Second prize goes to Shane in Wailuku (last name withheld by request): “We need you to tell us about people getting fined for dancing so we don’t get too happy about living on Maui.”

see SUN, page 8

Actually, now that I read it again, that one might have been a subtle jab. Either way, thanks for reading guys. And yes, I realize that I just devoted a whole column to talking about people wanting me to write about the LC instead of actually writing about the LC. But we’ve got a good one cooking for next week, I promise. -Jacob Shafer

SUN: continued from page 7 bengoa’s’s parent company is in Spain, where they have 20 years of solar technology development, both CSP and photovoltaic. Besides the Arizona/Solana project, Abengoa also has solar complexes under construction in Spain, Algeria and Morocco. Scott Frier, Chief Operating Officer of Abengoa Solar Inc. and Fred Redell of Redell Engineering Inc. in Santa Ana, California helped answer some questions about the prospects for solar installations in Hawaii. Both will be making the trip to Hawaii to meet with interested parties. Abengoa, they told me, has the ability to deploy the full range of


solar technologies, from rooftop singleuser installations to utility scale facilities, for tens of thousands of homes. A system for Maui and other Hawaiian islands would be sized depending on the need. The size of any project would also be taken into consideration when determining the cost of electricity generated. In general, solar projects benefit from large-scale implementation. This allows the higher cost components to be fully utilized, ultimately resulting in a lower cost of electricity. Frier and Redell believe that ultimately a mix of electrical generation, including solar, will be needed to satisfy demands as utilities shift energy generation to renewable resources. Abengoa Solar’s parent company is involved in many areas of energy and focuses on researching sus-

tainable energy solutions including wind, bio energy and wave energy. They stated that, depending on the project size and technology, a utility scale solar installation to serve tens of thousands of homes would take roughly 12 to 24 months to complete once permitted. Generally, such facilities can produce a full megawatt of electricity, enough to power 1,000 homes, for every five to ten acres utilized. rier said that several larger scale installations were built in the mid’80s to early ‘90s in the southwest United States. Several others are currently being planned and built. The current solar renaissance in the United States, says Frier, is also being fueled in part by the recently reenacted solar investment federal tax credits.

Utility scale installations, says Frier, are like any other power plant or generation facility, except the fuel source is the sun. As solar energy does not have to be imported, and is not subject to the volatility of fossil fuel or biofuel costs, it could greatly help with Hawaii’s energy independence, security and diversification of energy production sources. Holter believes the promise of this technology has been overlooked in Hawaii. “Our public utilities are dabbling in a few renewables, but are largely taking us down a path of enslaving us to more imported oil,” he said. “Whether it is imported petroleum, ethanol or palm oil, we ought to consider liquid fuels as better suited to our transportation fuels needs and use our sun, wind, and wave resources for electrical production.” National political hopefuls have been touting the likes of more nuclear power, “clean coal,” natural gas and more drilling as strategies to reduce our over-dependence, some say our “addiction,” to foreign oil. Holter pointed out that a recent article in Scientific American, “A Solar Grand Plan,” outlined a switch that would result in producing more than two-thirds of the country’s electricity by 2050. “Well-meaning scientists, engineers, economists and politicians,” the article begins, “have proposed various steps that could slightly reduce fossil-fuel use and emissions. These steps are not enough. The U.S. needs a bold plan to free itself from fossil fuels. Our analysis convinces us that a massive switch to solar power is the logical answer.” olar energy’s potential is off the chart,” the Scientific American article continues. “The energy in sunlight striking the earth for 40 minutes is equivalent to global energy consumption for a year.” Nine concentrated solar power plants with a total capacity of 354 (MW) have been generating electricity reliably for years in the U.S. A new 64-MW plant in Nevada came online in March 2007. These plants, however, do not have heat storage. The first commercial installation to incorporate it—Abengoa’s 50-MW plant with seven hours of molten salt storage—is being constructed in Spain, and others are being designed around the world. Whether the promise of solar energy can rise above the politics and economics of Hawaii remains to be seen. Certainly, having open discussions with community members, energy experts and elected officials will help us collectively plan a renewable energy future and economy that can sustain us all. MTW

We paid good money to enjoy dinner, drinks and a show at your venue, and it was a great show... until you had one of your staffers go and close all the sliding glass doors, basically giving about 70 percent of your paying customers an intimate evening with... the smokers and a parking lot. Even if the cause of it all was a noise complaint— which can’t be a precedent—you could have at least made a caveat emptor about closing the doors, and priced the show seating accordingly. We weren’t rabble out there—we all paid good money for tickets to see that show, not your shabby lack of courtesy and respect. And we were all pissed off. If you can’t keep the doors open due to volume, then you obviously can’t present a proper music show. That’s bait and switch in any courtroom and you are a crook!

Candidates for local office in Brazil can either register under their own names or make them up, and in the October election this year, three candidates chose “Barack Obama” (none won), and others registered under “Bill Clinton,” “Jorge Bushi” and “Chico Bin Laden,” but more than 200 offered themselves under the name of the country’s popular president, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.

Things Government Does When It’s Not Bailing Out the Economy: (1) The municipal transit company in Austin, Texas, unveiled a rider-education campaign in August, giving step-by-step instructions in how to stand up on buses without falling over. When the bus is accelerating, “lean forward and put your weight on your front foot.” (The introductory frame on the poster features a harried rider exclaiming, “Help! I’ll never figure it out!”) (2) A British government-funded poster campaign, also introduced in August, aims to encourage those waiting for municipal buses to do Pilates-type movements to improve physical fitness. Among the suggestions: standing on one leg, pointing the toes forward, clenching the buttocks.

SLEEPING WITH THE FISHES Chilean-Danish artist Marco Evaristti is working with condemned Texas inmate Gene Hathorn, 47 (convicted killer of three in 1985), on an anti-capital punishment exhibit to be staged after Hathorn’s execution. The murderer’s body would be frozen, then made into flakes that museum visitors could feed to goldfish. Evaristti is most noted for his 2000 exhibit in which he placed live goldfish in several electric blenders and invited museum-goers to turn them on.

FLYING CRAP An unfortunate burst of wind disrupted an outside art installation at the Paul Klee center in Bern, Switzerland, in August, ripping an inflatable exhibit from its moorings and carrying it away. The exhibit, by American Paul McCarthy, was a sculpture entitled “Complex Shit,” and the inflatable item was supposed to be a dog dropping the size of a house. Explained the Klee center’s Web site (challengingly), the show features “interweaving, diverse, not to say conflictive emphases and a broad spectrum of items to form a dynamic exchange of parallel and self-eclipsing spatial and temporal zones.” (Or, wrote London’s Daily Telegraph in broken French, it is “what happens when la merde hits le ventilateur.”)


DISABLE BODY Most workers who have retired in the last few years from New York’s Long Island Rail Road have also qualified for disability payments (though most did not claim such disabilities while working), according to a September New York Times investigation of state records. Lax union work rules, plus the astonishingly cooperative “Railroad Retirement Board” (which virtually never rejects a disability application), have resulted in nearly every worker drawing about as much money in retirement as he made on the job. In October, the Times also discovered that many of the same retirees were apparently so confident that their “disability” status would be approved that they also purchased private disability insurance to make retirement even more lucrative.

HOODLUMS Police in Dortmund, Germany, arrested six Romanian men in June and charged them with stealing from trucks on the open highway. Allegedly, the thieves would drive their own truck carefully


For this week’s click, we decided to do a YouTube search for “Maui” and write about the first thing that popped up. Problem was, the first couple pages were all SCUBA videos and chicks in bikinis and surfing footage. Not that that stuff isn’t cool, but come on—not exactly surprising. So we amended the criteria and looked for the first hit not related to the beach or water sports. Turns out it’s Jack Lee, “world champion bagpiper” playing a live show on island in ’06. If you hate the sound of bagpipes this won’t make you a convert, but the dude can play. And the look of pure soulful dedication on his face is worth the 4 minutes, 14 seconds all by itself.

up behind a tractor-trailer at highway speed, and a man on the hood would reach out and open the back of the rig with a bolt cutter. He would climb in and loot the rig of computers and cell phones by passing them out to a partner sitting on the hood of the trailing truck.

BAD SEX 1) Police in Fort Myers, Fla., said Jonathon Guabello, 29, who was angry that his girlfriend had denied him sex when they came home from a bar in October, left the room, shot himself twice in the arm, fell, and hit his head on a kitchen appliance, knocking himself out. (2) In Anderson Township, Ohio, in July, another frustrated lover, angry that his girlfriend kept falling

asleep one night during sex, retaliated, according to police, by attempting to set fire to her van. (The 46-year-old man who couldn’t sustain his lover’s interest is Gregory Smallwood.)

HONEST DEATHBED From the self-composed obituary in the Casper (Wyo.) Star Tribune of James William “Jim” Adams, who died September 9: “Jim, who had tired of reading obituaries noting other’s [sic] courageous battles with this or that disease, wanted it known that he had lost his battle…primarily as a result of…not following doctor’s orders…He was sadly deprived of his final wish, which was to be run over by a beer truck on the way to the liquor store to buy booze for a date.” MTW

actually named Samuel J. Wurzelbacher, a registered Republican who does plumbing work under his employer’s license—which puts him on shaky ground under Ohio state law—and owes $1,200 in back taxes. And Joe, er, Sam, you can thank Mr. McCain for the fact that those mildly embarrassing but pretty unremarkable bits of information went from small private concerns to national media fodder overnight. Man, this campaign keeps finding ways to get weirder… In other news: Congrats to Maui’s own Shane Victorino, whose Philadelphia Phillies are headed to the World Series. A local boy on baseball’s biggest stage, living out the dream of every kid who ever picked up a bat and glove. Pretty cool.


WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 15 The final presidential debate is in the books and now, at long last, we enter the home stretch of what has been without question the longest political marathon in U.S. history. I’m not going to parse this one too much, because it really came down to Obama playing it cool and McCain trying not to lose his. One question though: Is Joe the Plumber in any way related to Joe Sixpack? (I mean other than the fact that they’re both insultingly transparent caricatures invented by cynical spin doctors to manipulate the mythical Average American Voter?)… In other, related, news: An old friend of Maui Time turned me on to a dispatch from Colorado’s Greeley Tribune regarding our own dear Gov. Lingle. Stumping for the GOP ticket on the Mainland, Lingle had some choice words for Obama in response to a joke statement he made about how he’s from the West because “Hawaii’s about as far west as you can get.” Apparently feeling no qualms about throwing her own state under the bus, Lingle, according to the Tribune, told a group of Republican volunteers Obama’s comments were “a stretch,” adding, “Hawaii is a very different part of America.” And that’s…a bad thing?

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 16 Well, this was kind of predictable: Joe the Plumber isn’t really a licensed plumber. Oh, and he’s not named Joe. According to multiple sources, the man John McCain referenced no less than two dozen times last night is

When people have less, less people give. I guess that’s the sad moral of a story in today’s Maui News about how the economic downturn has led to a drop-off in donations to the Maui Food Bank. Some of the items the Food Bank needs most are canned meats, fruits and veggies and pasta, cereal and rice. And, of course, cold hard cash always helps, too. For more info, call 243-9500 or visit

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 18 So this is a few days old, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that the Superferry is headed for the Hawaii Supreme Court. Well, not the actual ferry (though that’d make for one hell of a Jerry Bruckheimeresque climactic action sequence). Rather, the state’s top judges will consider whether launching the vessel before an environmental impact statement was completed was a bad idea. (Hint: yes, it was.) Grab your life vests, could be choppy waters ahead.

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 19 Sometimes it pays to pull back and state the obvious. Like: this place is freakin’ incredible. When you can while away your weekend, as I did, by soaking up some sun on a near-deserted stretch of sand and bobbing in the warm halcyon waters of the Pacific then trek up through the mist to a 10,000-feet above sea level vantage point where you’re literally looking down on the clouds—well, that’s called paradise. The best part (or I suppose the worst part if you’re an economist or struggling retailer): other than a couple gallons of gas, it didn’t cost a thing… He gets it: A lot of people have made a big deal about Colin Powell endorsing Obama on Meet the Press. While that is certainly newsworthy (and springs another gushing leak in the rapidly sinking U.S.S. McCain) I was more blown away by something Powell said re insinuations that Obama is a Muslim. After touting the many followers of Islam


Next stop: the Hawaii Supreme Court. who have done great things for society, Powell told host Tom Brokaw: “The really right answer is, what if he is?” Doesn’t make up for his ill-fated years as the Bush Administration’s errand boy and his horrific performance selling the Iraq invasion to the U.N., but it helps. The question now: Is Powell just trying to clear his conscience, or is he angling for another Cabinet stint and a shot at redemption?

MONDAY, OCTOBER 20 Just got around to watching Sarah Palin’s much-ballyhooed appearance on Saturday Night Live. The verdict: meh. She wasn’t terrible and didn’t completely embarrass herself (which the McCain camp defines as: success) but she also did nothing to alter the perception that she’s a vacuous political puppet trying to get by on her saucy librarian looks and fake small town charm. The whole thing had to be pretty weird for Tina Fey, who in addition to mocking the Alaskan Governor

with her spot-on impression has made some scathing public remarks about Palin’s qualifications, or lack thereof. In the end, it was a wise move for Palin to act like she’s in on the joke, even though I suspect she still doesn’t get it.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 21 Walk-in absentee voting begins today at three Maui County locations: the County Clerk’s office in Wailuku; the Lahaina Civic Center; and the Mitchell Pauole Center on Molokai.

Also: why are you reading this?) MTW

OVERHEARD... “Yeah, we were gonna go—but then we heard about this thing with the beheaded chicken.” —Man to his friend at the Wailuku Chevron



the Business End A look at the week’s economic winners and losers...

Hawaii’s unemployment figures for September are in and, yep, the news isn’t good. Statewide, joblessness rose to 4.5 percent, up from 4.2 percent in August and 2.8 percent a year ago, according to the Department of Labor and Industrial Relations. In Maui County the jump was even more dramatic—from 4.7 percent in August to 5.5 percent in September. That’s getting uncomfortably close to the unsightly national average, which stands at 6.1 percent. Bottom line: if you’ve got work, be grateful; if you don’t: good luck.

It’s not often that good economic news and President Bush share the same sentence. But Dubya’s decision to lift visa restrictions for South Koreans traveling to the U.S. will likely give Hawaii a shot in the arm. Quoted in an AP story, Marsha Wienet, who works as a tourism liaison in the Governor’s Office, said the move could quadruple the number of South Korean visitors to the island by 2010, bringing the figure from the current 40,000 to 160,000. Even if those projections are on the rosy side, we’re still looking at a significant influx of people and money at a time when tourism from the Mainland is drying up. Given Gov. Lingle’s cozy relationship with GOP leadership, we wouldn’t be at all surprised if the decision came at least in part as result of her efforts. So now we’re (sort of) giving credit to Bush and Lingle? Time for a long hot shower.

If nothing else, the ongoing economic crisis has provided an endless array of tortured euphemisms, as officials struggle to avoid using the dreaded “r” word. The latest, from Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, as quoted on “protracted slowdown.”

We’ve taken our share of shots at The Maui News over the years and we’ll take more. But you’ve got to give credit where it’s due, as it is with this sublime bit of reportage from the October 18 edition: “The 34th annual Maui County Business Outlook Forum at the Maui Beach Hotel was easily the most downbeat in decades, if not ever. The Elleair Ballroom was filled with people paying to eat shrimp and hear bad news.” Sounds like a party. The gist of the gathering—which, though more sparsely attended than in years past, still drew a handful of movers and shakers—was that numbers are bleak across the board and likely to stay that way for a while. Hope the shrimp was good.

More trouble at the Honolulu Advertiser, with PBN reporting that the state’s biggest daily—a subsidiary of Gannett Co. Inc., which also owns U.S.A. Today—is looking to shave $5-$10 million off its operating budget and is offering employees another round of buyouts. If enough staffers don’t take the bait it’ll most assuredly mean more layoffs; the paper has already endured three rounds of firings in the last 15 months. MTW

OCTOBER 23, 2008



full moon floods the wide swath of sand that conceals Orion’s nest. Big Beach is lit up so bright we can see where the first ones emerged, the football-sized divot on a small mound of sand cordoned off with yellow caution tape. This is the third and final full moon to hit the still-gravid mound. Sheryl King, a biologist with the Hawaii Wildlife Fund, sits at the head of a circle consisting of a dozen or so of us. She explains what we are to do should more baby honu’ea—hawksbill turtles—dig their way out on one of our shifts: make sure they head in the right direction—toward the sea. Keep cats, mongooses, and crabs away. If one flips over in a footprint, push up sand beneath it so it can right itself, but don’t ever touch a hatchling. We determine who stakes out when, then hit the hay, or rather the sand.


awksbill nests typically gestate for around 60 days, King said, but she adjusts a nest’s “due date” according to various factors, among them temperature and shade. King spotted Orion, the mother, depositing this particular clutch around 64 days prior to the first hatchlings’ emergence. She was watching for nesting hawksbills as part of the dawn patrol, a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service effort to spot nesting females as part of the Honu’ea Recovery Project. She estimated the nest would begin to hatch on October 11. She was only 2 days off. The project takes place with help from several entities, including FWS, the Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The aim is to get the honu’ea population up to more stable number.

Orion herself likely hatched very close to the spot where she dropped off her most recent batch. “They tend to return to their natal beach,” said HWF co-founder Hannah Bernard. “We don’t really understand how they find their way.” Yet Orion doesn’t stick around for very long after nesting. According to King, she spends most of her days off the coast of Oahu and comes to the vicinity of Big Beach every three to four years just to nest. “I first tracked her, and named her, in 2001,” King said. “We’ve tracked her with satellite transmitters so we have a good handle on her movements.” This is Orion’s third or fourth nest this season. Two other nests were laid on island this year by an as yet


limpsing these tiny hatchlings, bellies full of yolk, as they march toward the sea is an extraordinary sight on its own, but there is a particular sense of urgency for the little ones whose prolific mama chose to deposit them in the shade of a keawe tree at Big Beach. Honu’ea are not the enormous green guys that bob up beside you when you’re snorkeling at Black Rock or Molokini. Honu’ea are smaller—they grow to be up to 270 pounds, whereas the greens round out at 400. Honu’ea have a beak rather than a rounded snout— hence the Anglo name, hawksbill. Most importantly, honu’ea are endangered under the

that may or may not constitute your sunglass frames was inspired by the hawksbill. In 1973 real tortoiseshell was banned worldwide under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES). It may be illegal to mess with them these days, but they’re not exactly bouncing back. That’s why the 140 or so hatchlings here at Big Beach, barely larger than your big toe, need to make it the ocean.


o far the turnout has been outstanding. The first night saw 48 turtles scamper into the tide. The next night more than 100 came out. Tonight we’ll see the stragglers to the shore, if there are any. Photo by: Errol Putigne

A single hawksbill may lay nearly a thousand eggs in a given year, but Hawaii’s honu’ea aren’t exactly thriving. They have a one in 10,000 chance of making it to adulthood. unidentified female, which Bernard says is a good thing—one more nesting female adding to the species’ extremely small gene pool. This is one of only ten or so nesting areas archipelago-wide. There are three on Maui. Other sites include Kameahame Beach on the Big Island and a black sand beach at the mouth of Moloka’i’s Halawa River. Ninety percent of honu’ea nesting occurs on the Ka’u Coast of the Big Island. Nests contain an average of 140 eggs. But while a single hawksbill may lay nearly a thousand eggs in a given year, Hawaii’s honu’ea aren’t exactly thriving. King said that they have a one in 10,000 chance of making it to adulthood. Volunteers stake out the nest for 24 hours a day as the due date approaches to help ensure the hatchlings’ instinctual seaward striving goes without predatory incident. HWF volunteer coordinator Angie Hofmann compares the hatching of a sea turtle nest to childbirth. Everyone was antsy in the days leading up to the hatching. A handful of volunteers parked nest-side in beach chairs day and night, eyes locked on the mound for even the tiniest movement. One volunteer called it a “watched pot.” Only this one boils. The first batch emerged at around 5am on Monday, October 13. Forty-eight hatchlings made their way to the water that morning, but Orion’s nest was still far from empty.

U.S. Endangered Species Act and most people you ask will say they’re critically endangered; greens are not. Though their plight is severe and stemming from the same source, green sea turtles are listed as threatened, which means that their numbers are much higher than those of the honu’ea. Statewide, according to King and Bernard, there are fewer than 100 nesting female honu’ea. Fewer than ten of these will nest throughout the isles in any given year. Only five or six total dig their nests on Maui’s coastline. “That’s critically low,” Bernard said, adding that the entire Hawaii hawksbill population is extremely vulnerable. “The greater your numbers, the greater your resilience.” They cite anthropogenic—human—causes for the species’ alarmingly low numbers: runoff, traffic, lights that disorient nesting turtles, introduced predators, habitat loss and more. Hawksbills across the globe were once plundered for their shells, which were made into combs, jewelry and even guitar picks. In Japan, according to the 1999 Jay April documentary Red Turtle Rising, they were seen as a sign of longevity, and thus stuffed and hung on the walls in many homes. In Hawaii their shells were used to make dinnerware, jewelry and medicine, though a kapu (taboo) barred honu’ea meat from being consumed (they dine primarily on poisonous sponges, which makes their meat toxic). The tortoiseshell pattern


Researchers have tracked Orion the mama turtle’s route and found she likes to hang out on Oahu, but comes to Maui to nest.


The next day King will excavate the nest carefully with her hands for any that didn’t make it out, dead or alive. Live hatchlings will be placed in the water after dusk. Eggshells will be counted and unhatched eggs will be sent to a NOAA lab in Honolulu for DNA testing. My one to 2am shift comes and goes without a peep. I’ve been instructed to shine a red flashlight on the nest every few minutes, but the mound is frozen. I fall asleep after my shift with few expectations. At some bleary hour a voice startles me awake. “There’s a turtle!” King says as she passes my tent. “A turtle just hatched!” It’s barely a quarter past five in the morning. Volunteers climb out of sleeping bags and tents and flood the area around the nest. One hatchling moves

slowly toward the sea in the moonlight, almost a silhouette at this dark hour. Its tracks look like tire tread from a mountain bike. We inch along behind it, awestruck. After 20 minutes the turtle is at the edge of the sea. Although its flippers have just had a killer workout, the hatchling takes to the waves effortlessly after the lapping water swallows it whole.


ny number of things could have thrown off the hatchling and its siblings. Had this been a beach up the road they may have gone toward bright lights. They may have gone toward South Kihei Road and gotten smashed, which has

happened before with nesting mothers; once in 1993 and once in 1996, thanks to speeding motorists. A feral cat (of which there are many) could have gotten to them. King says that even ghost crabs prey on sea-bound hatchlings, gouging out their eyes in a horrific display King herself has witnessed in the northwest Hawaiian Isles. Hofmann said her major concern is the long-term impact of development on nesting. While Big Beach is a state park and thus can’t be built upon, two proposed developments—Wailea 670 and the expansion of Makena Resort—could increase the volume of beachgoers that may, inadvertently or otherwise, disturb the nests.

“If they both get their way there’d be another city down here,” she said. The proposed development sites may be pretty far mauka of where the turtles nest, but storm runoff has an obvious impact on their ability to successfully hatch and make it to the sea, as does lighting. Hofmann said that, given how close honu’ea are to extinction, developers should reconsider how they determine appropriateness when choosing a building site. “The turtles have chosen this as their nesting place,” she said. While there are several well-documented hawksbill nesting sites statewide,

there is no bureaucratic mechanism that can designate them as a critical habitat. Bernard said that the only defense for sites with impending developments so far has been a lighting ordinance that the county adopted in 2007, which she said was watered-down. “It’s not the bill that we hoped for,” she said, “but it’s a start.”


ust after six in the morning the camp gets jostled awake once again. Three more babies have come out, a volunteer says. I hop to my feet. The last ones to emerge on their own are making it to sea in the new daylight, each on a separate trajectory, seemingly unaware of one another but probably very aware of us. We scare away the looming ghost crabs. We clear the path of debris, as the turtles’ tiny flippers hoist them along the final stretch of sand. It takes one honu’ea a few tries to take to the water; the oncoming surf pushes it off course. The other two swim off almost instantly. Photo by: Paul Cizek

Nobody knows where they’re headed. They return to near shore areas after about five to 10 years, but the time in between is known as the lost years. One theory is that they attach themselves to little clumps of seaweed, floating wherever the current takes them. Those ready to nest, of course, eventually make it back to the beach of their birth using some mysterious sense that we don’t yet understand. The hope is they’ll stick around long enough for us to find out.

Healthy portions Wailuku café’s eats are good and good for you he slogan at A.K.’s Café is “Eat Better,” and they mean it in more ways than one. They’re talking about the quality and flavor of the food, sure; but the tagline also hints at the Wailuku eatery’s other mission: providing Maui with a healthy dining alternative.


A.K.’S Cafe 1237 Lower Main St., Wailuku, 244-8774, 11am-2pm Tues.-Fri.; 5-9pm Tues.-Sat.

Select items on Chef Elaine Nakashima’s menu are labeled with a small heart icon, indicating smart options for those dealing with health issues like obesity or diabetes, or simply people looking to improve their diet. Unlike some places that claim to have healthy choices but on closer inspection offer little that isn’t fried and greasy, A.K.’s menu is littered with those telltale hearts, which adorn no less than 20 items from starters to salads to the main course. The question, of course, is do the two things—good tasting and good for you— overlap? The answer is a resounding yes. One prime example of this happy convergence is the grilled veggie mush-

room wrap, a mixture of fresh ingredients that lowers your cholesterol just looking at it and that passed muster with our resident vegan. A few other examples of items from both the lunch and dinner menus that you’ll still love in the morning: baked chicken with lemon basil and garlic; an Asian noodle stir-fry with tofu; grilled mahi complemented by cucumber relish; a seafood pasta with shrimp, scallops and lobster; and, you guessed it, fish tacos. If there isn’t something in there that calls your salivary glands to action, you surely don’t like food. Despite the commendable emphasis on wholesome fare, we don’t want to give the impression that A.K.’s has forgotten about those of us who crave, say, a good juicy burger. Or how about a pulled pork sandwich, overflowing with tender, delicious meat, against which a mere bun stands little chance. (Keep your napkin handy with this one, you’ll need it.) Other worthy options for those with looser dietary restrictions include the fish and chips—which met and exceeded this connoisseur’s high standards— the grilled chicken nachos and the ribeye with onions. Recommended starters include a trio of mini burgers with fries and the ultimate pupu platter, which includes a crab cake, sautéed mushrooms, short ribs, coconut shrimp and chicken wings.

As you’ve no doubt deduced by now, one of A.K.’s greatest strengths is the diversity of its menu. The phrase “something for everyone” has been worn past cliché, and worse, it often indicates a menu that’s so overstuffed it loses focus. Not so here. A.K.’s has managed to pull inspiration from a desultory array of culinary corners while maintaining cohesion and, more important, quality. The last thing that should be noted is affordability, no small consideration in these lean economic times. Though a

few items—the steak, the seafood pasta—top out around $20, folks looking to spend less will find no shortage of choices. This is the type of place where you could take a date, eat multiple courses, get drinks (and naturally give the friendly waitstaff a welldeserved tip) and easily wind up spending under $40. Their happy hour special—which knocks a buck or more off bottled beer, mixed drinks and pupus and runs from 5-6pm Tuesday through Saturday—makes things even more wallet-friendly. So we return to that slogan—“Eat Right”—and realize that, while it seems simple enough, it’s truly a multi-faceted (not to mention spot-on) representation of what the folks and the food at A.K.’s are all about. Here’s to their health— and yours. MTW

Best places for leftovers DA KITCHEN Kahului & Kihei There are two keys to good leftovers. First, the food has to be the right quality and variety to hold up during a lonely night or two in your fridge sandwiched between the two percent milk and the empty pickle jar. Second, the portions have to be ample; obviously it doesn’t matter how good a dish would be the next day if you polish it off in one sitting. Da Kitchen meets and exceeds both criteria, particularly the second. Its menu is diverse enough to feature multiple items—the chicken katsu being a prime example—that taste just fine when re-heated or even eaten cold in a pinch. And the portions…oh man, the portions. There may be a few out there who can routinely clean their plate at this beloved local eatery, but unless you’ve got a powerful hunger and a limber stomach, you’re walking out of there with a doggie bag.

WOK STAR Kihei Of all the world’s regional cuisines, Asian food probably holds the title of Most Leftover Friendly. Wok Star combines influences from several Asian sources—the word “fusion” is over-used, but it applies here—with a result a happy convergence of flavors, and one mean leftover. Whether it’s a bowl of fried rice, curry or an order of crispy spring rolls, there’s no shortage of options for that day-after snack. And if you want to make sure you have some food left, order the banana lumpia with chocolate ice cream as a top-off.

FLATBREAD Paia Cold pizza is like the Michael Jordan of leftovers—it may not technically be the best ever (noodles, Wilt Chamberlain) but it’s the one most people think of first, and it’s pretty damn good. (Adding a layer to the tortured sports analogy, there’s actually a bad show on ESPN called Cold Pizza.) There’s just something about day- (or two-) old pizza that pleases the palate. While purists might argue the fare at Flatbread isn’t pizza in the strictest sense, no one would argue it isn’t good. The available toppings run the gamut, with the connecting thread being freshness and quality. And the thin crunchy crusts have the advantage of not getting soggy, a bonus when you’re planning to wrap them in foil for a midnight munch session.

RAMEN-YA Kahului Another leftover truism: noodles keep well. You’ll find no shortage of them at Ramen-ya, used as the centerpiece of various savory concoctions. And oh yeah, the portions are huge. The big bowls come heaping with goodies and the broths are rich and flavorful. Eat half at the beginning or end of a night on the town, take the rest home and enjoy re-heated in the morning (on the stovetop, not in the microwave) to sooth whatever post party ails you may have acquired. Works every time.

SAENG’S Wailuku Unassuming from the exterior, inside Saeng’s has a pleasant, even classy openair feel that’s a rare commodity in Wailuku. The ambiance is so good you might just stick around long enough to finish whatever enticing Thai dish you select. Any of their curries—prepared with fresh Maui veggies and herbs and served on both ends of the spicy spectrum per request—or the Pad Thai are recommended if you’ve got an eye toward stretching your meal into tomorrow.

The other half Keli’i Kaneali’i, formerly of Hapa, brings his solo show to Maui f Hawaii’s music scene had its own kupuna, Kauai’s Keli’i Kaneali’i, with three decades of entertainment under his belt, would more than qualify for that elite title. The native Hawaiian, who was born on Oahu and spent many years living and playing on Maui, was part of one of the biggest musical movements to hit Hawaii and is largely responsible for introducing a truly unique brand of Hawaiian music to the world.


Keli’i Kaneali’i Friday Oct. 24, 8pm at Mulligan’s on the Blue, Wailea; Saturday Oct. 25, 7:30pm at Charley’s, Paia; advance tickets at Bounty Music; for info call 572-1218

He’s practically a god in Japan. But don’t be worried if you don’t know this artist by name. He hasn’t played a Maui show in eight years. Most people know Kaneali’i as the original singer, guitarist and half of the duo Hapa. The Hawaiian half. The word hapa, for all the newbies, means mixed blood or race (usually Hawaiian and Caucasian) and the group that dubbed itself Hapa more than 20 years ago was exactly that. New

England native Barry Flanagan arrived on Maui in the 1980s without a drop of Hawaiian blood, but you wouldn’t know it from the passionate way he set about to master the slack key guitar and learn the art of composing Hawaiian language music. When the duo formed and began releasing albums they quickly found themselves in the spotlight of a new movement in Hawaiian music with their self-titled 1993 debut album. In 1994 it was obvious Hapa had hit the right combination—a blend of folk, bluegrass and traditional Hawaiian music that was unlike anything that had come before it. That year, the group swept the Na Hoku Hano Hano awards and started to be known locally and nationally as the “sound of Maui.” Kaneali’i and Flanagan recorded five albums together and toured extensively for 18 years before going their separate ways in 2000. Many loyal fans were sad to see the pair that had created so much incredible music split over creative differences. Flanagan, like the half of the Oreo cookie that kept the crème, continued Hapa with a new singer. Kaneali’i retreated to Kauai with his family to develop his own sound and pursue a solo career. After having a musical partner for so many years, Kaneali’i says it was “hard to get up on stage alone.” He spent his time adjusting to his solo sound, which initially felt bare without the accompanying music and vocals he’d grown accustomed to. But he’s not just that guy from Hapa any more.

ys 7 da pm h c n 30 g lu m – 2: n i v ser m 11a Now ek fro e aw

“It took a long time, but now I’m comfortable playing by myself,” he says. It seems like Kaneali’i has been avoiding playing on Maui since leaving Hapa. He has a regular gig on Kauai and a loyal fan base on Oahu, but this will be the first time Maui will get to experience his solo show and hear the material he’s been working on. “It’s going to be nice to see all my friends on Maui,” he says. Kaneali’i’s been working hard on his first

studio CD and promises to treat Maui to the new songs he’s written. Fans will be happy to know that he still plays lots of the old Hapa favorites, as well as covering some of his own favorite songs. Rumor has it he does a mean rendition of “Lady in Red.” “My music has changed a little bit. I’ve got my own style now that I’m playing alone and I have to sound fuller,” he says. “I’ve become more freelance with my singing. It’s all good.” MTW

Songs about seafaring (In honor of ocean-bound baby sea turtles everywhere)

The Decemberists “The Mariner’s Revenge Song” This song is nine straight minutes of knock-you-on-yourass. I first came across it late one night when I was compulsively researching sea shanties. This song is said to have been inspired by the centuries old form, which consisted primarily of call and response performed aboard ships to sync crew movements during repetitive tasks. Forthwith, I dialed it up on, which is a free Internet jukebox that has pretty much any song you can imagine. The song’s opening bars are enough to remove you from your immediate surroundings; a phenomenon that grows as the song—in both its instrumental and narrative arcs—unfolds. The song’s narrator tells the object of his vengeance, with whom he is trapped in a whale’s belly, how they know each other. The narrator was a little boy when his counterpart married his widowed mother, subsequently philandering, gambling her money away and leaving her in debt and dying of consumption. As the song’s drama heightens so too does the intensity of the instrumentation, culminating in a most creepy and haunting manner as the avenging narrator closes in on his prey. Fucking jawdropping. In fact, the entire record this song belongs to, Picaresque, is pure dynamite.

While it predates the above-mentioned tune by nearly four decades, “Antoinette” is a bit more accessible. The British rock band didn’t get much airplay in the U.S. during its ’60s heyday. The reason for their relative obscurity is a mystery given the caliber of songs like this. It’s a solid rock and roll song with a scorching guitar lead laid over the first few bars. The song surges forward much like the ill-fated vessel for which it is named. What makes this song especially killer is the melody, which sounds like it was pulled straight from the high seas. It’s obvious that sea shanties inspired the tune, which the boys then injected with bear adrenaline and fed about four Jager bombs. The song’s melody, tightness and exuberance are what make it worthy of mention, but its lyrics don’t exactly detract from the tune. The story line revolves around a dude who names his ship after his lady. The ship embarks on a voyage, then it sinks. I discovered this one on by way of a radio station I created based on British ’60s rock band the Move.

Captain Beefheart “Orange Claw Hammer” If “Yellow Submarine” ate an entire sheet of brown acid the product would not be dissimilar to this tune. With a voice like sandpaper, Captain Beefheart (Don Von Vliet) tells the story of reuniting with his fictional estranged daughter. The chord progression is played in a choppy manner that parallels the tune’s surreally poetic, beersoaked, salt-weathered lyrics: “Take you down to the foamin’ brinin’ water/and show you the wooden tits on the goddess with a pole out, full sail/that tempted away your pegleg father.” I discovered this tune during a mass acquisition of Frank Zappa music. The two were friends and used to perform together, and you can hear Zappa’s voice at the opening of the track. Warning: the version you want to hear is the one from the Grow Fins compilation and not the creepy a cappella version featured on Trout Mask Replica (on which he sounds certifiable and not unlike a seawater schwilling hobo). You can find it on

Deconstructing Dubya Bush biopic part engrossing portrait, part SNL sketch hether you love or loathe President George W. Bush, his story is incredible and director Oliver Stone clearly realizes that. In Stone’s version of recent American history, we witness Bush



★★★★★ Rated PG-13/110 min.

(Josh Brolin) as he fails at one occupation after another, disappoints his father (powerfully played by James Cromwell), gives up substance abuse, embraces Christianity and finds himself in over his head as the 43rd President of the United States.

Is this a fair and balanced portrayal? Absolutely not. Yet Stone’s film can be wickedly entertaining and Brolin’s great performance is one of the many examples in which the cast is as stunning as their resemblance to their real-life counterparts. Thandie Newton is amazing as Condoleezza Rice (you’ll forget you’re watching an actress). There’s also Richard Dreyfuss (as a manipulative Dick Cheney), Elisabeth Banks (winning as Laura Bush), Jeffrey Wright (a sympathetic Colin Powell), Ellen Burstyn (a spitfire as Barbara Bush), Scott Glenn (fantastic as “Rummy”) and Toby Jones (portraying Karl Rove as a calculating suck-up). The performances are so terrific, I wanted to like the movie more than I did. After a fast, enthralling first half, chronicling Bush’s fall and rise to power, the pace begins to drag (the film feels far longer than the 110-minute running time). There are key moments from Bush’s political career that are strangely omitted (like his controversial 2000 election win and 9/11). On the other hand,

Bush’s faith in Christianity is depicted with surprising restraint and without mockery. The song selection for the soundtrack is well chosen but Paul Cantelon’s score is cartoonish and heavyhanded. Stone mostly avoids outrageous touches and lets the story tell itself without additional embellishments (although, to be fair, Bush defenders have a real case that Stone thoroughly depicts Bush as a bufImpersonating foonish loser). The most audacious scene (a dream sequence where W. and H.W. Bush duel in the Oval Office) is cut too short to make an impression, and many stabs at symbolism (like the closing scene) are too obvious and silly.

Bush: not a good way to get chicks. Flawed but engrossing, Stone’s neargreat film is, sadly, no JFK or Nixon. When it works, it’s fascinating and funny. But when it doesn’t, it plays like an overlong SNL skit. MTW

Don’t be scared…

Fear factor

Thursday (Oct. 23), 9pm, Café Mambo, Paia

Fri-Sun (Oct. 24-26) & Sat-Sun (Oct. 30-31) 6-9pm, Iao Theater, Wailuku

Peter Benchley, author of the novel upon which the classic film Jaws was based, was dismayed by the widespread fear and hatred of sharks that Jaws helped set into motion. He once said that "the shark in an updated Jaws could not be the villain; it would have to be written as the victim, for, world-wide, sharks are much more the oppressed than the oppressors." The film that screens tonight, Sharkwater, shows who the real villain is in the human-shark dynamic, and the numerous behaviors that threaten the very existence of this amazing creature. The documentary follows a dramatic run-in between the Sea Shephard Conservation Society and a crew of scurvy Guatemalan poachers, among other things. If you missed this when it screened on island earlier this year, now’s the time to check it out. Admission is free, but the folks at Mambo do ask that you spend a minimum of five bucks. This shouldn’t be a problem given that they have Maui Brewing Company beers on tap. [Kate Bradshaw]

From the outside it's easy to see why people say the Iao Theater is haunted. The old building just looks creepy, with its Spanish mission-style architecture and wrought iron balconies. At night when the dim, yellow lights come on it even looks a bit like a luminated jack-o-lantern. The gothic interior of the theater doesn't do much to dispel the supernatural stories, either. Rumor has it that there are two resident ghosts hanging around backstage, moving things about and casting their shadowy forms all over the place. This is exactly the kind of eerie stuff that makes the theater a perfect place for a haunted house. Haunters of all ages will enjoy a mummified rendition of Michael Jackson's Thriller while they wait to go backstage into a ghostly maze of terror populated by murderers, ghosts and other creepy characters. The staff will tone down the scary stuff when they know really little kids are coming through, but the freaky frights, fog machines and strobe lights mean this event isn't suitable for very young children or peeps with some health conditions. Can you handle the fear? Admission, $2. 242-6969. [Jessica Armstrong]

Throwin’ it down

Dancing in the (new) moonlight

Saturday (Oct. 25), 9:30pm, Mulligan’s on the Blue, Wailea

Tuesday (Oct. 28), 9pm, Mai Tai Lounge, Lahaina

I know, I know. I gave Erin Smith coverage when she opened for Paula Fuga a couple of weeks ago. Since Saturday’s show is a completely different animal than the last I feel I am justified in doing so. First of all, she is playing with her band, the Throwdowns (Kimo Clark and Ian Hollingsworth). As a trio, Erin Smith and the Throwdowns put on a hoppin’ show. I mean, they get so into their music that they jump up and down and shuffle all over the place. It’s hard not to absorb the energy that radiates from the stage when they play. While primarily a rock band, Erin Smith and the Throwdowns skip across genres as they see fit. Plus, Erin Smith swears like a sailor in some of their tunes. I enjoy swearing. This show celebrates the release of their single, “Take A Swing.” Oh, and I almost forgot: the Maui Roller Girls will be skating around during the show, seeking out new recruits. $5. [KB]

This is the inaugural full moon-inspired lounge event (as evidenced by the title, Luna Lounge), even though this time around it takes place on the new moon. What matters is that something interesting is happening on a Tuesday evening at a killer venue. Performer Goldawn Won tells me that the sound you will hear fuses hip hop, reggae, and “a touch of island soul.” DJ Zinn will spin the sounds of Sade and Maxwell, among others. Zinn will also perform live with uke player Brian G and Drummer Ray G. Guest performers include DJ JP and others. Adding immensely to the lounge-y feel of the evening is the spot where Luna Lounge takes place. Mai Tai Lounge, rounding out its first year in business, has a rooftop bar complete with swanky couches that overlook the sea. The drink menu is packed with funky tropical what-have-yous as well, but I tend to go with cosmos there. They seem to work well with the place’s vibe. Goldawn Won also tells me that they will be shooting a video this evening. Just a head’s-up. Ladies get in free from nine to ten. The cover for dudes is $5 before ten and $10 after. [KB]

SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) A friend of mine was robbed the day before she moved. All her stuff was packed into convenient boxes for the thieves to load up and haul off. What shits! I can’t help but wonder if this was their plan all along, or just excellent luck for the burglars. Nevertheless, there is something essentially Scorpionic about such a move, in the sheer brilliant maliciousness of the timing. One of the things you guys rock at is picking the “perfect” moment to make your move. Evil-minded Scorpios wreak havoc with their impeccable timing; enlightened ones create miracles. Which role will you play this week?

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) Humor will take you further than anger ever could. People are more likely to change their minds if you make them laugh than if you try to make them pissed off, or care. This is the key to getting them to pay attention, and consider behaving differently. Forget the lame ineffectiveness of earnest entreaties; they’ll just make you cynical and bitter. Embrace instead hilarious, clever satire. Even if it’s no more successful than the heartfelt pleas, at least you’ll have fun putting the word out. Your wit will carry you further than you thought possible. Use it.

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) You knew ages ago who you wanted on your side. Unfortunately, picking “your team” in advance doesn’t mean you’ll get them. You may be able to bring some of the people you want on board, but definitely not all of them, probably not even most of them. Now’s the time to demonstrate versatility and flexibility. Consider this an opportunity. Soaring in adverse conditions is far more impressive than flying high in clear blue skies. Making this less-than-ideal situation a phenomenal success is the perfect demonstration of how amazingly badass you are. Even though nothing’s going exactly right, in retrospect you’ll likely decide things couldn’t have gone better.

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) Names have tremendous power. Many ancient traditions put great stock in names. How much does your name represent you or empower you—or limit you? Being a Rockefeller, for instance, might open many doors, but it would also make people view you much differently than they would have if you were part of the Jones family. There are ways your name boxes you in, and also ways it lets you shine. Seeing as how you’re on a path to see yourself as clearly as possible, without filters, understanding how this can change how people see you is vitally important. Focus on figuring it out, this week.

PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) Whenever a certain Pisces friend of mine is paralyzed by fear or indecision, he goes ahead and vividly imagines the worst-case scenario (usually “we all might die”), and makes himself okay with that. Once he’s gotten that out of the way, he’s able to act with absolute freedom, knowing he’s already embraced total disaster as an acceptable outcome. Because I see you often screwing things up because of selfdoubt and fear, may I suggest embracing this strategy? If you’re okay with catastrophe before you even begin, you’ll be free to truly do your best—and consequently achieve far better results.

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) When something starts taking up too much mental real estate, it’s usually because you’re not exploring it properly, you’re in denial, or you’re limiting yourself. Sometimes there are great reasons for not “going there,” but sometimes you’re just needlessly cockblocking yourself out of principle or outdated ideals more than anything else. Turn your attention to your internal roadblocks. You’re spending far too much energy and time climbing over or around them, or simply being stopped by them, when just a tiny bit of effort could get rid of them for good, or at least for the foreseeable future.

TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) You’ve been busy trying to manifest abundance. However, I’m not sure if you actually want to end up there. Being a kid in a candy store with pockets full of money is fun for about fifteen minutes, until you get yourself into trouble and make yourself ill. I don’t know, but instead of trying to manifest a reality with more than you could ever use or enjoy, perhaps focus instead on one where you’re thrilled with what you have, and don’t need much more. It’s not only more achievable right now, it’s much healthier, too.

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) I admire your ability to nearly always put a positive spin on things. Most of the Geminis I know are optimists, and not the annoying kind that ignores reality, but rather the ones who are able to be realistically positive. Looking at the bright side of even dismal situations is one of your specialties. In case you hadn’t noticed, we need that even more than usual right now. Most of the people spewing hope are talking out of their asses, and we don’t need more bullshit. We need reasoned, thoughtful reasons to dream. Don’t hold out on us now.

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Just because you’ve suffered a string of disappointments in the recent past, don’t make the mistake of considering it some kind of trend. Expect more of the same, and you’ll get exactly that. However, the reality is that this series of letdowns was more of a coincidence than anything else. Your luck could change later today, for all you know. Of course, if you’re determined to keep telling yourself the story about what a hard luck case you are, how bad you have it, and so on—the story will be only too willing to oblige you by carrying on indefinitely. Tell yourself a different, more hopeful tale; even if it doesn’t feel “true” yet, it soon will.

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) Personally, I’m bored with your strings of excuses. “I can’t get in shape until I join a gym,” is followed by, “I need a personal trainer,” and “I need a better diet.” All of these things might be true, but they’re also just excuses. The truth is, you could get in shape just riding your bike around the neighborhood. Throw in a batch of sit-ups and push-ups in your living room, and you’re all set. All that business about the gym, the trainer, and the diet are really just obstacles you’re putting between you and what you want because you’re lazy and reluctant to actually put in the work to get the job done. The question is, recognizing your laziness is only the first step. The second, of course, is overcoming it. Can you? This week you have better than average odds.

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) No one can possibly fairly accuse you of shying away from change. In fact, every time it’s become apparent that it’s time to switch things up, I’ve seen you embrace it (even if you were also stressed out by it). That’s commendable, and far better than getting stuck in a rut. However, sometimes that translates into jumping the gun; essentially throwing yourself into a new situation before you’ve really gotten everything there is to get out of the old one. That might be the case here. Just because a new door has opened doesn’t mean you ought to fling yourself through it. Before you do, take a good look around and make sure you’ve seen and done everything in your current scene that you could possibly want to see and do. If not, you might be just better off sticking things out here and seeing what happens.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) I frequently watch hapless parents suffer under the tyranny of their children. I don’t presume to know their situations, but I can’t help thinking that they are doing both themselves and their kids a disservice by forgetting their role as guardians and guides. Throughout our lives, we’re forced to rethink our relationships with other people, and redefine ourselves accordingly. That’s what’s happening to you now. Ignore what your ego is telling you. Mostly disregard what you’re reading and hearing out there. The truth is you already know the “right” thing to do in most situations, if you just give yourself a chance to think about it. Give yourself that chance, then do that thing.
