One Day Deals you don’t want to miss!

LETTERSTOTHEEDITOR TRIAL BY JERKY Is the Trial Period over yet for the “Restless Native?” I remember not long ago when I could instantly flip to the back page and get an end-of-the-week chuckle from “Holo Holo Girl.” Is Maui Time really going to replace that with the depressing mid-life complaints of a self-described workaholic? I’m not sure what is more sad: (1) having to read about Ms. [Starr] Begley’s breakdown(s), or (2) having to overlook the obvious free advertising that Ms. Begley’s November 1st article amounts to. While on the positive, I hope that the Restless Native gets a good discount at Green Ti Boutique for the advertising. I can’t help but think that there’s better comical fodder somewhere on this island to make that last half a page worth reading. By the way, the formula of adding nonsensical trivia in italics at the end does not make the articles, or the author, any funnier to read. -Jon H. Apo, Deputy Public Defender, State of Hawai‘i, via fax Starr Begley responds: You flatter me, Mr. Apo. See, the top of your fax to my editor says “PUBLIC DEFENDERS” and displays the return number 808-984-5022. This means you sent your letter to the editor using the official, taxpayer-funded, State of Hawai‘i Public Defender’s Office fax machine. That you would risk violating Section 84-13 of the Hawai‘i Revised Statutes (“No legislator or employee” can use “state time, equipment or other facilities for private business purposes”) just to tell my boss that I’m not funny almost brings a tear to my eye.

They are a much worse visual assault on Maui’s raw aesthetic allure than all of the new development on the hillside of Haleakala. Maui needs energy solutions that don’t sacrifice Hawai‘i’s soul. -Ronda Tycer, via email

TROUBLED BY TROUBLETOWN I’m know it’s been a while since you replaced Ted Rall’s cartoons with Troubletown, but I have to say that every time I open up your rag, I am disappointed to see it gone. Troubletown pales in comparison to Ted Rall’s wit. Also, I guess you phased out his editorial articles even longer ago that that in favor of more local reporting. I can dig that, but the man has fantastic viewpoints on national issues. So why not try kill News of the Weird to fit ‘em in or something? News of the Weird is garbage, mates. Honestly now… I miss Ted Rall. -Geoff Moore, Huelo



I am writing in support of council member Jo Anne Johnson’s proposed moratorium on new development on West Maui agricultural lands (“It’s Moratorium Time,” Oct. 18, 2007). Development on the Westside has simply gotten out of hand. I do not believe that the majority of the residents of the Westside want development on every open space from the ocean to mountain throughout the entire Westside. Every public building in Hawai‘i has a sign on the wall posted by the fire marshal stating the maximum number of people that can be in the room. This sign is posted for the health and safety of the public. The population of the Westside has surpassed the number of people that can live here with the current infrastructure. Please support the moratorium. -Bruce Forrester, Kahana

Good work on sharing This American Life (Mind Candy, Oct. 18, 2007). It is truly a worthwhile piece of entertainment, but probably requires too much thought and patience for the average pop-cultured American. -Marek N. Rajesh, via email

DOESN’T CARE FOR WINDS OF CHANGE I write as a Maui visitor without an agenda other than my love for Hawai‘i and my 20-plus year timeshare ownership in Kihei. I actively promote reduced energy costs, alternative energy sources, and independence from Mideast oil. But the Kaheawa Wind Power’s 20 turbines on the ridge above Ma‘alaea is not only a defacement of a once favorite view of the island from the South Maui coastline, it is an affront to Mother Nature herself (“The Answer, My Friend,” Nov. 1, 2007). Perhaps the rationale for scarring the mountainside with the turbines and service road was discussed at length and the decision made on a rationale basis of which I am ignorant. Perhaps there was no less-prominent windswept ridge that would have provided sufficient or efficient power. But every resident and visitor on the south Maui coast from La Perouse to Ma‘alaea now looks at what appears to be a crooked zippered fly up that mountain. The turbines totally destroyed an important sky-sea-landscape for which Hawai‘i is famous and which is its primary draw.

Hey, if you don’t like waiting in line, then why do you keep coming in? You always look and sound like a spoiled brat: huffing and puffing with your hands on your hips because you think the person in front of you is taking too long. You always ask us to do special things for you and give you extra stuff that isn’t normally included just to make your fat ass happy. And, of course, you never ever tip us. (Also, you dress too young for your age—oh, yes, we all know exactly how old you are.) But this last visit of yours was the worst one yet. You ordered three items—and ate all three items—but then refused to pay for anything because you said one of the items wasn’t up to your standards. You could’ve fooled me—you scarfed it down as fast as the others. We never like to turn away business, but in your case, I’ll make an exception. Don’t come back!

Thank God for Hana -Popular bumpersticker


The Kona vog hung thickly in the air, as ominous as Governor Linda Lingle’s promise to sign special legislation to bail out the Hawai‘i Superferry. A flash flood watch was posted for the next four days. Undaunted, we packed the car, preparing for a weekend sojourn to lush East Maui. Hana has a special place in our hearts, as Heather and I honeymooned there seven years ago. Like a deep massage of the spirit, romancing all five senses, Hana beckons. Even with its daily caravan of rental cars and guided tour buses, this part of Maui has retained a sense of place that has slipped away elsewhere. Here, nature’s elements take priority. Sky meets the mountains and ocean meets the shorelines in dramatic splendor. The Hawaiian ancestors stand vigilant. Each bright blossom, sprouting coconut and moss-covered lava rock evokes awe. Far from Kahului traffic, cane smoke, County Council deliberations and deadlines, Hana is like mental floss. As we approached Hana town, many quaint roadside stands offered fruit, flowers, “world-famous banana bread,” coffee and more. A banner advertised the upcoming third annual Hana Film Festival. Then we arrived at our friend’s home, perched on a hill overlooking the undeveloped Mu‘olea Point shoreline. Karen Davidson is a wonderful color-outside-the-lines artist who recently completed her home and art studio. She crafts dreamy cloudscapes and large colorful florals from handmade paper, and they float threedimensionally on the walls of her high-ceiling structures. Davidson is also a member of the Mu‘olea Point advisory committee, formed after joint efforts by the Trust For Public Land, Office of Hawaiian Affairs, County of Maui and the U.S. Department of Commerce—through a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration grant—acquired the 73-acre coastal parcel. Though then-Mayor Alan Arakawa and the Maui County Council suffered through a rancorous relationship, acquisition of Mu‘olea was one instance in which the greater good of preservation efforts trumped political posturing.

LC Watch The agenda for the upcoming Nov. 8 LC Board of Adjudication hearing lists just two cases, both concern The Blue Lagoon, which hasn’t made a single appearance before the Board in the four years I’ve been covering them. The first case has just one count of allegedly “allow[ing] the consumption of liquor” by a minor back on Aug. 16, 2006. The second case is also just one count, this time of allegedly serving an already-intoxicated customer in the early morning hours of Aug. 5, 2006.

Mu`olea Point

Heather and I vowed to hike down to the ocean, but first headed towards Kipahulu to hook up with friends she had met in Bali. We crossed the temporary steel bridge at Paihi Gulch, where federal engineers deemed the old bridge unsafe after the October 2006 earthquake. Soon after, we approached one of those narrow spots where vehicles hug either side of the road so they won’t clack rearview mirrors with oncoming cars. As we inched past a tourbus minivan, the local driver, complete with mini-microphone leaned towards us. “Excuse me,” he said. “Do you have any Grey Poupon?” In Kipahulu, one of the many signs denoting “One Lane Bridge” has been carefully graffitied, with “Lane” crossed out and replaced with “Love.” Such is the vibe at the Laulima Fruit Stand, near the end of the road, where a barricade prevents traffic from traversing the “backside” through Kaupo until structural repairs from the earthquake can be completed. Laulima is a charming snapshot of creative sustainability, with a backdrop of organic gardens and fruit trees. Red sugar cane stalks are run through a hand crank, with the juice collected for fresh drinks. A stationary bicycle generates electricity for a blender, so customers can pedal their own smoothies. A variety of local fruits and foods are available, as well as locally grown and roasted coffee. In an adjacent small, circular grove of black bamboo, Rachel displayed her Bali


batik clothing designs, using traditional natural dyes. Her husband Rob took turns minding their one-year old boy and playing a bouncing African tune on the kalimba. Dogs and people wandered in and out, while people half-heartedly swatted away mosquitoes. A short while later, we swam in a clear freshwater pool, sculpted out of waterworn rock, languishing under the graceful arches of a bridge built in 1911. We never quite made it to the film festival at Hana Bay, opting instead to play music and sing around a fire, outside a community kitchen hale. The sound of the waves drumming the shoreline set the background rhythm, pulsating energy through the dark. Back at Karen’s house for Sunday breakfast, I kept an eye on the Packers game before we headed out on adventure. Rob from Bali and Heather both grew up in Sheboygan, and Heather’s grandfather actually played for the Packers back in the 1930’s, one of the original meat packers who played football on the weekend. Even watching play-by-play simulation on the computer, the game provided high drama, with Brett Favre pulling out yet another fourth quarter comeback win from his bag of tricks. Later we drove around Hana town, taking in the sights. I couldn’t help but think that a ban on vacation rentals would hurt the local people here as much as anywhere. see HANA, page 12

A conviction on either potentially brings fines of $2,000 or, given the current mood of the Adjudication Board, license suspension. Each also carries a possible “strike,” counting towards future license revocation. In both cases, owner Seth Bruins is pleading no contest. Bruins didn’t want to comment on the upcoming cases, beyond saying that the was in the process of selling the Blue Lagoon and has “a lot of problems right now.”

Paying our Respects

Photos: Beau Ewan

Save the Lipoa Point surfboard cemetery! “People are just dying to get into that place.” That’s the line my dad would always use as we drove by a cemetery. But I can’t apply the same humor to this cemetery. None of those deaths were peaceful. The grounds are filled with broken egos and lost loved ones. It’s a dichotomy, this place of beauty and death, beginnings and endings. Here, the passing of time and tide are all that pays attention to the hallowed ground. Nobody, it seems, pays much attention to the surfboard cemetery at Lipoa Point. Unfortunately, development can dig the sanctity right out of the earth and replace it with condos. The surfboard cemeteries—and the surrounding area—are in danger from the potential development plans of the landowner, Maui Land & Pineapple Co. While their Honolua plans for forty luxury estates and an 18-hole golf course remain on hold—and they continue to insist that they have no intention to build anything at Lipoa Point—they also insist that the bay cannot remain as it is. My discovery of the surfboard cemetery came after a crisp evening session with moderate Kona winds. The swell was macking out of the northwest and Windmills was going off. I sat on the side of the trail to watch one last set. An unknown charger came flying out of the doggy-door barrel and landed directly on the ending slab of reef— unaffectionately known as “The Dinner Table.” Sure enough, the poor guy got served. His board buckled on the thriving wana and he rode the remains to shore. Looking like a pallbearer, he carried his board’s corpse to the pile of mangled fiberglass and laid it to rest. His eulogy was short and sweet, consisting mainly of four-letter words. I drove home with B.B. King’s mellow chords whispering through the car radio. The blues will bring out empathy. Any surfer knows that a good board, over time, becomes much more than a mere object. The perfect board is an extension of the body. It’s to the surfer as the rifle is the marine. This is my surfboard. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My surfboard is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my own life. My surfboard, without me, is useless. Without my board, I am useless.

Later that month, I returned to pay my respects to the cemetery. Some of the remains looked 50 years old. I stared down into the pile of rotting polyurethane and tried to make out the epitaphs. One said “K-Land” and another said “Al Merrick.” I side stepped back as a crab crawled across the pile. I noticed a board that read “Honolua Boyz” and thought about how the Boyz could one day lose these sacred grounds. The Save Honolua Coalition, founded by local surfer Elle Cochran, was able to halt ML&P’s development plans through loud, sustained community opposition. But the future of Honolua Bay and Lipoa Point remains uncertain. Maui Land & Pine has said repeatedly that they will not leave the bay as it is now. Organizations like the Lipoa Point Advisory Council are trying to preserve the future of Honolua Bay. Plans range from installing earth-friendly toilets to building parking lots and pavilions. The goal is to manage the land through conservation and education rather than mansions and fairways.

But as yet, neither ML&P nor the conservationists have addressed the surfboard cemetery. For the time being, they remain undisturbed. As the debate over

the bay rages, the broken boards around Lipoa Point symbolize the lesson so many surfers already know. Nature calls the shots. MTW

WEDNESDAY, Oct. 31 Yes, we’re going to start off another week talkin’ ‘bout the Superferry. Quit your bitching—the boat will be running soon enough, and then it won’t be in the news anymore. But in the meantime, we’ve got elected officials to denounce! Now a week ago, the state Senate voted on the big “compromise” bill that grants a special exemption to Hawai`i Superferry, Inc., allowing it to operate while the state conducts an environmental review. All three of Maui’s senators—Roz Baker, J. Kalani English and Shan Tsutsui—voted no, possibly because down deep they’re principled human beings. But over in the state House, we’ve got a different story. Only Maui rep Mele Carroll (D, 13th District) opposed the bill, while representatives Joe Bertram, III (D, 11th District), Angus McKelvey (D, 10th District), Bob Nakasone (D, 9th District), Joe Souki (D, 8th District) and Kyle Yamashita (D, 12th District) all voted to let the Superferry get special treatment. Normally I’d say something pithy and vengeful at this point like, “You people know what to do come election time…” but the election’s not for another year and by then even I will have forgotten about this travesty.


THURSDAY, Nov. 1 And now, as if I didn’t have anything better to do, I get to play a round of Let’s Defend a Self-Indulgent Fool’s Right to Say Despicable Slurs in Private! Yes, kids, I’m talking about Dwayne “Dog” Chapman, who survived bounty hunting and nearly getting tossed into a Mexican jail only to watch the A&E Network put his immensely popular Dog the Bounty Hunter show on hiatus. The reason, as most of the Free World now knows, is because the National Enquirer got a hold of a heated, surreptitiously recorded conversation between Dog and his son Tucker in which Dog regularly drops the N-Bomb while telling Tucker that he can’t date some African-American chick because there’s too great a chance said African-American chick will find out Dog likes to drop N-Bombs, and then record an instance or two of Dog dropping NBombs and give said recording to the Enquirer. Got it? Good. Of course, A&E had to toss Dog off the air—for a time, at least—because there are sensitive (read: advertising) issues to consider. Never mind that the recording is a private conversation between two more or less consenting, sentient adults—Dog used the word nigger in public! Draw and quarter him! Who does he think he is, Dave Chappelle? By the way, If you really want to talk offensive, listen to Chapman’s first sentence in the recording, in which Dog tries to say that his argument with Tucker’s girlfriend has nothing to do with race: “Don’t care if she’s a Mexican, a whore, whatever.”

people last year, so I guess that’ll be cause for the county Cultural Resources Commission to break the whole thing down next year.

SUNDAY, Nov. 4

Will someone please remind me why Halloween had us all so damned worried? According to today’s Maui News, something like 30,000 people partied on Front Street in Lahaina on Halloween, and the Maui Police Department arrested 24 people. That’s right—two dozen arrests. That’s it—you can find more hell-raising at a church bingo game. That means the cops busted 0.0008 percent of the Front Street crowd. Hell, they arrested 19 people in Kihei, and I don’t recall that place being listed as Mardi Gras of anything.

On the same day when 50 residents braved torrential rains to stand outside the Hoapili Hale in Wailuku and protested the state Legislature exempting Hawai`i Superferry, Inc. from environmental law, the Honolulu Advertiser reported that a key provision in that exemption—posting federal whale monitors on all Superferry voyages—won’t actually happen. In an email to Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary co-manager Jeffrey Walters, Chris Yates of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said the feds can’t spare anyone to stand watch on the Superferry for at least a year, and maybe not even then. “I also want to make clear that we have been very straightforward with everyone who has asked about this process,” Yates added in the email, which was excerpted in the Advertiser. “I fear that the bill as written will raise the expectations of the public and media that these requirements will actually result in some action, which they will not. I will need to explain to them that everyone we spoke with knew in advance that these measures were not feasible.”


MONDAY, Nov. 5

FRIDAY, Nov. 2

Of course, the cops arrested just 20

Well, Governor Linda Lingle signed the

Superferry bill today, which is kind of ironic because I just figured out what all this Superferry legislative nonsense was about: Respect. See, according to state House Speaker Calvin Say, who’s quoted in today’s Honolulu Star-Bulletin, our esteemed legislators were victims of Big Media and really had no choice. “There was a campaign by the media,” he said. “[T]he surveys, the radio talk shows and also the negative statements that we are really so anti-business.” So our elected representatives chucked our own environmental laws into the dumper—just this one time!—because somehow (this still remains unclear) the Superferry people got the idea they didn’t have to do any environmental review before starting even though they really did. Well, after this, no one can say Hawai‘i’s a bad place to do business. In fact, if I ran a business—especially a big, well-funded business with lots of lobbyists—I’d absolutely come to Hawai‘i.

TESORO BAD! You’d think being the owner and operator of the largest oil refinery in the great state of Hawai`i would pretty much set you for life, but apparently that doesn’t seem to be the case. Catastrophically bad news this week for Tesoro, which made a paltry, measly, miniscule $47 million profit this last quarter—a whopping 82.8 percent lower than the $274 million net earnings the company raked in last during the third quarter of 2006. The reason, according to the Nov. 2 Honolulu Star-Bulletin, was that “lagging price provisions on some of its contracts that didn’t keep up with soaring prices” for the crude oil used by its Kapolei refinery. So sad—an oil refinery being knocked around by the soulless market like that…

A&B GOOD! Tesoro’s drop puts A&B in the top slot at a fortuitous moment: that company’s third quarter earnings show a 76 percent increase in profits over the same period last year. Granted, the real estate giant’s stupendous third quarter profit ($49.1 million) barely tops Tesoro’s horrendous earnings figure, but still, when you only did $27.9 million in the same period last year, it’s hard to see a downside. A&B apparently earned such money by unloading, among other properties, its Fairway Shops in Ka`anapali and Napili Marketplace, which makes us wonder if maybe good times would return to Tesoro if it started dumping a few gas stations.

By mid-afternoon, we returned from our explorations, and I retired to the art studio for some horizontal time. My nap carried me into a wild reverie, as storm winds and rain outside built to a crescendo. Wind chimes clanged a wild gamelan tune, and thunderclaps rumbled through the sky. The Kona winds dropped a large monkeypod limb from the tree in the driveway turnaround, narrowly missing both our cars. When the storm let up, I spent an hour or so with a pruning saw, trimming smaller branches off the fallen limb. I was rewarded with homemade peanut butter cookies, fresh from the oven. As we fed carrots to the horses in the neighboring pasture, clouds lifted and the Big Island came into view. Then, much to our delight, the sunset painted the sky in an amazing palette of pinks, golds and purples. The following morning, Karen led us down to Mu‘olea Point. Once a summer home of King David Kalakaua, it’s rich with cultural features and rock walls hidden beneath the spreading hau bush, Christmas berry and other invasives. Karen said the Mu‘olea advisory group has been less inclined to accept grants for preservation and restoration efforts, preferring to do clearing through weekend volunteer efforts. They’re also sponsoring cultural and botanical surveys. The property contains a grove of coconut palms, planted from a strain linked to original Polynesian introductions. A rare strain of poisonous seaweed, know as limu make, also

grows there. The jagged lava coastline contains acres of tide pools. Near where Papahawahawa Stream meets the ocean, a large group on a plant survey in April 2006 noticed a fin protruding from one of the pools. Under closer examination, it appeared a dolphin had become stranded, perhaps after swimming in at high tide the night before. It was scraped up and exhausted, but still alive. The stranded creature was most likely a juvenile Blainville’s beaked whale, an expert said later after examining photos. With state Department of Land and Natural Resources response time likely to take a long while, the group sprang into action to rescue the whale. Men took off their belts and wrapped them around its tail to turn it around, while children collected wood to place over the sharp lava. With everyone in the tide pool, they somehow managed to muscle the 10-foot cetacean back into the ocean. As they did so, two or three other whales appeared and came to escort the injured whale. Everyone’s clothing was soaked in blood, a baptism of sorts. Reflecting on the incident later, one of the elders remarked that this was exactly the kind of community effort needed to restore Mu‘olea, with many hands together accomplishing what might seem to be an otherwise insurmountable task. Such heroic efforts are taking place all over Maui, but are often overshadowed by the big money-making proposals of those who would view the riches of our island as a commodity. Caught on an economic treadmill, we tend to lose sight of those essential ingredients that nourish our souls in ways that only nature can do. Hana reminds us that there is a different way of seeing, and a different way of being. Esthetic beauty holds more value than retail conveniences. A healthy community is more important than economic success. Tending to the history of the land and culture is a noble, and truly priceless, pursuit. Hana is a place where the web of life is shimmering in the sunlight, like dewdrops on a spider’s gossamer strands. Hana gives hope that we might not only wake up and smell the coffee, but possibly even wake up and grow the coffee. MTW

End the Crackdown! The case for leaving unpermitted transient vacation rentals alone By Terez Amato-Lindsey


randon Shim and Anthony Arakaki worry. They own and operate Pauwela Café in Haiku Cannery. Both born and raised on Maui with family going back generations, they recognize that the fight to stay on the island is increasingly a challenge. “We’re really tied to Maui, but my family comes first,” Shim, a graduate of Maui Community College’s Culinary Academy, said. In 2004, after burning out working for a big company, he and Arakaki purchased the small Eurocafé. In the high winter and summer tourist seasons, many of their customers are people staying in the transient vacation rentals (TVRs). They provide the revenue for the fledgling café to survive through the slow season. But now the County of Maui is closing down unpermitted TVRs, which actually make up the majority of all transient rentals. “People say, ‘Well, you want to shut down all vacation rentals.’ That’s not true,” Maui County Planning Director Jeff Hunt said. “We don’t want to shut down vacation rentals. We want compliance with the law. I think we deserve some credit for responding quickly, for realizing we need to get something out.” Before the Maui Planning Commission on Oct. 23, Shim stressed that not only does he need the revenue from TVRs and Bed & Breakfasts (B&Bs) to survive, but so do a lot of other businesses in Haiku. “If these guys are gone, you’re yanking out a big economic portion of annual sales for a whole community,” he said. “It’s almost essentially like yanking the hotels out of Wailea, closing down the hotels in Ka‘anapali. People need this money to survive.” Shim and Arakaki have already seen a shift due to rising costs in Hawai‘i. Repeat guests are staying for shorter amounts of time. Instead of buying new surf and kiteboards here, they bring their own with them. Shim and Arakaki are concerned that, coming next year when all unpermitted TVRs have to close or face fines, their restaurant will see a 20 percent decline in revenue. Overall, they only make a 15 percent profit. “If you do the math, I’m probably not

going to be here,” Shim told the commission.


n 2005, the county hired the Kauaian Institute to study the short-term vacation rental industry throughout Maui County. Located in Kapa‘a, Kauai, the Kauaian Institute is an independent research organization focused on sustainability issues from both a corporate and community standpoint. According to the Kauaian Institute’s data, the TVR industry contributes just 1.5 percent of total visitor spending throughout the county, but surprisingly provides approximately 8.4 percent of all island jobs. That’s about 588 jobs. (Fair disclosure: I had one of those jobs, working as a bookkeeper for a vacation rental company that closed as a result of the county’s crackdown). These jobs in the TVR industry include the homeowners and operators themselves, housekeepers and grounds maintenance. From there, the employment pool’s


ripple expands to those who offer the rentals as management companies and the rental agents who book them. It rolls on to flower growers, restaurants, local retail and activities and trickles out through the rest of the island from there. By comparison, the Maui Land & Pineapple Co. currently employs approximately 1,200 people; Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar has about 750 employees. Think of what would happen if ML&P let go of half of its workforce or HC&S laid off a whopping 78 percent of its employees. Put another way, every $1 million in revenue the TVR industry brings in creates 19 jobs. On average, it’s estimated that the industry brings in about $38 million annually, which equates to the 588 jobs mentioned earlier. After the multipliers are applied, something like $56 million annually circulates throughout the county. It’s no wonder there are so many people—and not just homeowners—up in arms over the issue.

Then there are the visitor demographics. On Maui, the overall average nightly hotel room rate is at $290. Wailea comes in at an average of $490 per night. TVRs average slightly less than $500 per night, but that’s for the use of an entire house. It’s logical that individuals who stay in lower-priced accommodations naturally have more money to spend out in the community. As a result, the increased visitor spending throughout the community results in better distribution of visitor dollars among islanders—thus producing the multiplier, or ripple, effect. The Kauaian report’s data demonstrates that TVR visitors are much more likely to spend their money within the community on local activities and businesses. According to research, guests of TVRs are 25 percent more likely to patronize historic sites than the average island guests. They’re also 20 percent more likely to support local markets and 10 percent more

likely to take part in craft fairs.


t’s not all rosy.

Those are the words of Maui Planning Commissioner Bruce U‘u, said during the Oct. 9 hearing. The room was so crowded that concerned residents had spilled out into the hall. No, it’s not all rosy, and there are multiple reasons why. First, the majority of unpermitted TVRs are located on ag land. Land specifically zoned for agriculture gets county tax breaks, which are meant to support farmers. By definition, a farm is a tract of land with a house, barn, etc., where crops or livestock are raised for livelihood. In order to be a farm, you have to be farming. A farm is a challenging operation, though—especially when dealing with nutrient poor soil, water shortages and severe labor issues, which are big issues on Maui. Because of this, the county has helped out farmers by allowing them to act as B&Bs. “We want to encourage farming; and so we feel that if you are a real farmer, you can be rewarded with a bed and breakfast,” county planner Joe Alueta said at the Oct. 9 committee hearing. “If you are not farming, then the county and the governments are not entitled to grant you any entitlements. You are supposed to be a farmer in an agricultural district.” In fact, most TVRs and B&Bs aren’t farms. Currently, the county proposal requires that they bring in at least $35,000 annual revenue for two consecutive years to qualify as a farm. But on two-acre ag lots, generating that much gross revenue can be nearly impossible—especially if prices drop. For this reason, the Planning Commission is reviewing the TVR and B&B bills and looking for alternative benchmarks. One possibility is simply lowering the gross revenue requirement. But another option I came up with would be to dedicate a certain percentage of the total lot size to active ag production, and then to measure output yield. For example, it could be required that 90 percent of every two-acre lot be set aside for agriculture use only. That 90 percent could be mandated to produce a certain yield which could be determined by taking into consideration the type of crops or livestock raised and the environmental conditions impacting growth. For those who can’t meet any of the benchmarks, the conditional use permit process still stands in place. One woman who operates a B&B in her Haiku home as a way to supplement her Social Security income said at the Oct. 9 hearing that the conditional use permit will make all the difference. In her situation, she said, farming is not a viable option because “most of my land is in a gulch and the only way I can get to it is to rappel down the walls of the steep banks.”


hen there’s the TVR industry’s perceived impact on the housing market. The use of the ohana unit seems to be the biggest concern to planners and commissioners alike. Opponents of TVRs argue that by including ohanas in the B&B and TVR ordinances, the short-term rentals take affordable housing out of the longterm rental pool for both na kama‘aina and long time malihini—particularly on the Northshore of Maui. “When you allow the B&B, you gonna push out the guys who was raised there who try rent affordable housing and they the ones who going be living in Kahului or in the places that the other ones don’t wanna live,” Commissioner U‘u argued at the Oct. 9 Planning Commission meeting. The Planning Department cites the 2005 Kauaian Institute study’s finding that “renters and owners lost share to seasonal units during this decade.” But reading further down the page, it clearly states that while the “seasonal” share increased approximately five percent, the percentage of renters remained constant at 31 percent. Therefore, based on these numbers, it’s misleading to say that TVRs displaced renters. Further research done by SMS, an Oahu-based research company, shows that if all of the available TVRs and B&Bs operating today closed, just 1.1 percent would actually make it to the affordable rental pool. The reason for this is because the grand majority of these homes will never be affordable to average Maui citizens. “If one unit were lost because an ohana were converted to a B&B, that would be too much,” Commissioner Wayne Hedani said. But Commissioner Joan Pawsat kept trying to wrap her head around why it was being discussed. “I still don’t understand why we are holding individual citizens responsible for providing public housing,” she said. If current homeowners who work hard to hold onto their homes and are already struggling to make ends meet have to sell, their properties will be sold to the highest bidder. But the highest bidder, in all likelihood, will be those people purchasing their second or third homes who live abroad. The individuals in that income bracket will not need to make money off the property as a means of paying the mortgage. As a result, a majority would sit empty. On the flip side, forcing homeowners to sell could depress the already slacking real estate market and regular residents might actually be able to afford once unattainable homes. But further depressing the real state market has other consequences. There will be less jobs in the construction industry. Also, affordable housing initiatives may end up being pushed back to wait for a better real estate market that

can subsidize the lower income units with the higher priced ones.


hen there’s the impact on our island way of life and culture. Culturally speaking, Hawai‘i is a huge mixing pot that blends residents and visitors from around the world. But the TVR debate brought to light that along the way it became divided not between indigenous Hawaiians and the malihinis, but between those who have brown skin, brown hair and brown eyes and those who do not. That issue came up very strongly at the Oct. 9 Planning Commission meeting. “If I look at you guys right now, I don’t see a lot of local people in hea, you guys infringin’ on my lifestyle,” Commissioner U‘u lectured, to the horror of shocked attendees. “Hawaiian, local… been hea for generations.” The outrage was such that Hawaiians, locals and haoles packed the Oct. 23 hearing and spoke out on this. There were locals on both sides. Proponents claimed that because our island economy was shaped to be dependent on tourism, the only way for Maui to continue to thrive is to make allowances and adapt to the changing needs of tourism. Globally, the eco-tourist market is booming, with visitors much more interested in finding the true heart of the locations they visit. They want to live among the people, learn about their customs and ways of life first hand and not simply be sold a commercialized image. But opponents say visitors don’t belong in residential areas because they simply don’t understand the diversity of customs here in Hawai‘i. They also worry that the sense of security and community is being lost in neighborhoods where TVRs exist. In her Sept. 30 Maui News op-ed , titled “Urbanization, commercialization of neighborhoods threat to traditional Maui” (and later posted on the County of Maui website), Mayor Charmaine Tavares—largely mute throughout the unfolding controversy— maintains a strong desire to preserve island way of life as being her objective. “I believe we must respect the desires of those who want their children to grow up in neighborhoods where people know each other,” she wrote. “Our island communities were built upon the strengths of families who were bonded by friendship.” Commissioner U‘u shared that concern as he told his fellow commissioners about his experience with guests in a neighboring TVR. They reported smoke to the fire department while he made kalua pig in his backyard. If preserving neighborhoods is really Tavares’ objective, then we have to wonder why allowing 20-room vacation rentals in areas such as Paia, Haiku and Kula found

its way into her administration’s draft ordinance on TVRs. By allowing these rentals and eliminating traditional homebased TVRs, motels will be able to quickly fill in the gap in accommodations. One thing is certain—the Planning Commission has a difficult job ahead of them. The issue’s been deferred indefinitely, but they’ll have to address it again at some point. Many eyes around the world are watching them, and the economic and social impacts are already being felt. “I think that someone did bring up a good point that it might not be the best times for the economy to be shutting down another industry at the same time construction may be slowing down throughout the islands as well as real estate, etc.,” Commissioner John Guard IV said on Oct. 9. In an attempt to alleviate the stress of immediate closure, the Planning Department granted a grace period until the end of 2007 for TVRs operating under the previous administrations amnesty program. “We granted a grace period and we took a lot of heat for that grace period,” planning director Hunt said. “At least one councilmember questioned whether we could do that and we defended that. We thought it was fair to give people a reasonable amount of time to make other plans to switch over to the long-term housing. Which is what those ohana units are intended for.” The current permitting process is arduous at best. It has been known to take up to seven years and tens of thousands of dollars. Applicants must provide the plans for their homes dating back to three previous owners. Up to 15 agencies do site inspections and hold hearings on each application. I’ve watched Maui grow, lost access to places that I once enjoyed. I’ve seen beautiful areas stripped and trashed at the hands of visitors and residents alike. At the same time, I know there’s no way to stop all development and roll the clock back 30 years. Change is inevitable. Unfortunately, previous generations lacked the foresight to develop broad economic opportunities, to make Maui sustainable, without becoming dependent on tourism and construction as the main economic drivers. But understanding that doesn’t make it any easier to accept. Don Atay and his wife have operated the House of Fountains B&B in Lahaina for 13 years. They’re one of the 13 B&Bs currently permitted to operate. Atay operates legally, and the county crackdown doesn’t affect him—other than possibly increasing visitor traffic to his front door—but he’s concerned that realtors and developers wield too much power and are keeping the locals from accessing treasured places once available to all. “Money! Money! Money!” he told me. “It’s all about money, and it’s not about the people of Maui.” MTW

Ohana Café They’re open again! On June 21, 2007, I wrote in this very paper that my beloved Ohana Café in Wailuku had “closed its doors” the previous month. In fact, I am very happy to report, the café’s closing proved just a temporary inconvenience. For the last couple months, Ohana Café has been operating pretty much as before—still operated by the good folks at Alive & Well in Kahului—though with a few changes. It’s hard to convey how tough it was when Ohana Café closed, even for just a few months. Lunch options in Wailuku Town, while fairly numerous, tend to lack “healthy” food. Ohana Café, just a few steps from the Maui Time offices, was a refuge from McDonald’s and Subway and, yes, even that really nice guy who sells

tacos in the vacant lot across from the Iao Theater. What’s more, Ohana Café’s counter made it easy to order food to go.

Ohana Café 2010 Main St., Wailuku, 244-5950. Open Mon.-Fri. only, 8 a.m.-2 p.m. $

In the old days (okay, six months ago), I’d order my lunch and then chat with Gina Mariano, the pretty, diminutive brunette behind the counter. This doesn’t really happen anymore, though, because Mariano spends her hours at the café actually cooking everyone’s food. Which brings me to the main reason why I spend at least one day a week in the café. Their menu is smaller than it was in the spring, but still contains an array of sandwiches, salads, smoothies and breakfast items. And as usual, most everything is all natural, nitrate-free and organic. Lately I’ve been addicted to the Organic Grilled Chicken plate lunch. Served with either Shoyu or spicy Thai chili sauce (trust me: spicy Thai is how you want this one), the free-range chicken comes with a couple scoops of wonderful brown rice and their local mixed green salad, which con(top) Breakfast Croissant & Home Fries with choice of all natural breakfast meat and the Kale and Chard Salad with organic tomatoes, cucumber and carrots.

The Triple Decker Club is still a massive sandwich, full of sprouts and avo and such. The Chicken Salad Sandwich and Smoked Turkey Sandwich (both also available as wraps) are thinner but still very satisfying options. Delicious seared ahi is also available, either as a plate lunch, wrap or salad add-on. Originally just content to offer organic juices and smoothies during morning hours, the café recently added a few breakfast choices. The Macadamia Nut French Toast is a monster pile, heaped with whipped cream, raw mac nuts and maple syrup. You can also mix your own egg scramble with a variety of meats, cheeses and vegetables. But my personal favorite is the Breakfast Croissant—scrambled eggs and spinach with bits of Sunday Bacon (or ham, if you like), tomato and cheddar cheese on a flakey Croissant. The café’s still not open on weekends or past two in the afternoon. Still, the very fact that it’s back open is good enough for me. MTW

War Friday (Nov. 9) and Saturday (Nov. 10), 6 p.m. at the War Memorial Stadium [SPORTS] What makes contact sports like boxing and MMA (mixed martial arts) so damn awesome? Blood, that’s what. There’s nothing more satisfying than having two trained men step into the ring with each other and then bust each other’s face open. Yes, I’m being totally serious. I love it. It’s primal. Humans are animals–living in a modern world suppresses that. Domestication is definitely a downer. But in the ring? There, man’s wild side comes out–his Beast. This weekend, I’m checking out War in the Valley Isle 3: a night of boxing on Friday and MMA on Saturday. Boxing is good. I really do enjoy it. Especially those hot Russian Klitschko brothers… But my heart’s with MMA. I mean, you can punch the guy in the face and try to choke him out all while kicking him on the shin. Now that’s entertainment. Tickets: $15 (Friday) $20 (Saturday) at Uncle Jesse’s Place and Ainokea, $20, $25 at the door. Kids under ten get in free. [STARR BEGLEY]

ThIS WEEK’S PICKS by Starr Begley

No Place Like Home Fiddler on the Roof Friday (Nov. 9) 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Salvation Army, Kahului

Friday-Sunday (Nov. 9-18) at 7 p.m. (F, Sa) and 2 p.m. (Su), Baldwin High Auditorium

[EVENT] My dad has always given to the homeless. We’d be at the drive-through and he’d order an extra meal and then we’d drive around to find “his friend” who hadn’t eaten in a while. It made me feel good, and it’s something I still like to do. I’m a sucker when it comes to panhandlers and other people who need a little bit of what I have. I would be flat broke in the big city within a day. The Salvation Army Homeless Outreach program and students from Maui Community College School of Nursing are joining forces for the seventh year to bring us The Health Fair for the Homeless. There will be booths by Maui’s human services agencies, health screening, informational displays as well as raffle prizes, food and drink, bingo and entertainment. To RSVP as an agency, call 281-3735.

[STAGE] I’m going to go out on a limb here and admit that I’ve never watched a production of Fiddler on the Roof. What’s more is that I have never even read the book by Joseph Stein, but I act like I do all the time. “Ah,” I say, “Marlon Brando was brilliant in that!” Then I realize that I’m talking about Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, which I’ve never watched either, unless you count looking at movie stills. I just love when he bellows, “Steeeelllaa!” Wait, that was Streetcar Named Desire, which for the longest time I thought was a James Dean thing. Oh well. The point is that I’m finally getting the chance to watch Fiddler on the Roof, once and for all. It’s about a Jewish family in Russia in the early 1900’s that struggles between holding onto family traditions in the face of a changing world, which is very modern. I guess that’s why it’s considered a timeless classic. Tickets: $12, $9, $6 call 984-5656 ext. 545.

Mos Definitely Friday (Nov. 9) Doors open at 8 p.m., Liquid’s Nightclub, Kihei [MUSIC] Mos Def is a showbiz jack-of-all-trades. First and foremost, he’s a celebrated rapper with nearly 20 years of professional experience and a handful of records under his belt. His blues and rock infused hip-hop music lands him among a new genre of rappers that shy away from traditional themes like drugs and violence, and his creative forays into new-school rap music on albums like Black on Both Sides, and Mos Definite have socially conscious lyrics and eclectic beats. He’s also graced the big screen with parts films like Brown Sugar and The Italian Job, as well as Chappelle’s Show. He’s hosted a spoken word show Def Poetry on HBO. And he even hit up Broadway with a role in the Tony Award-nominated play Topdog/Underdog. Mos Def is kind of unstoppable. I just heard he’s releasing a pair of Converse shoes. Now that’s success. Tickets: $70. On sale at Premier Video & Music, 875-0500. [JESSICA ARMSTRONG]


Hey Buuuddy Saturday (Nov. 10) 8 p.m., Liquid’s Nightclub, Kihei [COMEDY] Think back to 1992, when the masses dressed in filthy grunge attire, Bill Clinton looked young and unashamed and Pauly Shore made a crash landing in theaters across the nation. The obnoxious, wild haired actor scraped up a name for himself by acting like a jackass on MTV and “weaseled” his way into a three-picture deal that began with the entertaining flick Encino Man, continued with the mildly amusing film Son In Law and finished with the dry, forgettable In the Army Now in 1994. Now, I’m not saying that I never found Shore’s characters funny. I’m as guilty as the rest of using “Pauly speak” in normal conversations in those years. But what I think is really funny is the speed at which his lead-roll getting, porn star-dating career declined to the point that his 1997 TV series Pauly was cancelled the day after it aired. On the other hand, Shore is right back where he started, doing stand up comedy, and to tell you the truth I watched some of his new stand up stuff on YouTube and he’s actually funny. Tickets: $25.

Tightening the Screws Hollywood Political Drama is Years Behind the Times Tom Cruise’s first undertaking as co-head of United Artists is politically top-heavy with simultaneous political conversations, made all the more cumbersome by its extravagant cast that includes Cruise, Meryl Streep, and Robert Redford, who also handles directorial duties. A pungent vapor of earnestness permeates Redford’s unimaginative handling of

Lions for Lambs

★★★★★ Rated R/92 min.

newbie screenwriter Matthew Michael Carnahan’s three-note script that toggles between an Afghan battlefield crisis, a senator’s one-on-one press meeting with a TV journalist, and a professor/student conference. For a film attempting to grapple with the seething anger of an American populace left hung out to dry by the Bush administration, Lions for Lambs is far to muted and meek to achieve its perceived goals of inciting social activism. The film’s biblical-sounding title equates American cowardly leadership as lambs sending brave soldier lions into an arena of battle where no

competent plan has been put in place. Would-be Presidential candidate Senator Jasper Irving (Cruise) invites left-leaning veteran reporter Janine Roth (Streep) for an hour-long audience with him at his Washington D.C. office to leak a surgical strike military plan in Afghanistan that he’s certain will turn the war around. Streep adopts a wounded puppy attitude for most of Irving’s self-aggrandizing monologue concerning a strategy that, as it turns out, is taking effect while they speak. Cruise doesn’t just chew the scenery; he massages, charms, intimidates, stalks and nails every bullet point of his neocon agenda with the ardor of a Baptist minister. Although the display of emotion is completely out of character for such a cold-blooded politician, the performance is nevertheless hypnotizing, and presents the most interesting aspect of the movie. Redford has a more thankless task of character development as Dr. Stephen Malley a California College professor attempting to invigorate his promising but wayward student Todd (Andrew Garfield) to take civic action. Todd has traded in his superior debating abilities and questioning mind in favor of fraternity life and savoring the flesh of his latest girlfriend. Malley establishes the parameters of the discussion when he offers Todd a “blue collar B” for the semester if the lackadaisical student will agree to stop coming to his class, rather than merely dropping in from time to time. Too insulted to take the bait, Todd stays for Malley’s preaching

Scientology plus White House equals scary.

session that promises to recalibrate his appropriately cynical value system. Part of Malley’s burning motivation to awaken Todd’s latent activist spirit lies in the decision of two of his former students to join the military as their way of taking direct political action. Arian (Derek Luke) and Ernest (Michael Pena) took advantage of one of the professor’s classroom debates to display their military induction letters that put them stranded on a desolate mountaintop in Afghanistan. So while the anti-war teacher expounds the power of the people, and the Washington Senator plays editor and publisher, two soldiers bleed and freeze in the midst of

ever-encroaching Taliban forces. You can sense the filmmakers trying to avoid seeming candidly leftist, as if they were walking on squeaky floorboards in bare feet. They get ready to say or do something radical, think better of it, and sit back down with an air of humiliation hanging over them. If Lions for Lambs were produced as the collegiate stage play that its plot constraints indicate, it would still seem like a sheepish attempt at social theater. Here is a film made to preach to the converted. It doesn’t tell us anything we haven’t already known for years. America is still screwed. MTW

Active Imagination Artist Steve Sundram does it all—even highsea adventure I think Steve Sundram is stalking me. When my mum visited, I took her to see Ulalena in Lahaina. She loved it so much that she bought one of local artist Steve Sundram’s amazing prints in the lobby. At the tail end of her vacation,

Myths of the Seven Seas Nov. 9-10, Sargents Fine Art in Lahaina. For more info visit

we went shopping for souvenirs. After, she noticed that Sundram had also painted the images on many of the things she had bought to take home. Then last week, at my friend’s vow renewal ceremony, I was introduced to a healthy, handsome man. It turned out to be Sundram.

Sundram’s zen-like home has an easel set up on the front porch. Next to it is a rainbow of paint tubes. On the other side is a bench press loaded down with weights. Not that he lifts weights while painting. “It makes my hands shake,” Sundrum said. “Whatever isn’t working on the painting, I let out on the punch bag in the yard.” So much for preconceived notions of an artist covered in paint, living in bohemian chaos and sustained by absinth and tobacco. Originally from Australia, Sundrum–a self-taught artist–left home at 15 to travel the world. He first visited Maui in 1990. Like many artists, he fell in love with the island. Sundram’s canvases hang in every room of his airy home. He’s experimented with many styles of painting. “Part of being creative is to challenge yourself,” he said. Sundram has been described as one of the most diversely talented artists in the world, turning his brush to impressionistic, Renaissance, abstract and portraits. In

1988, he was commissioned to paint Kim Basinger’s portrait; the painting hangs today in her Los Angeles office. According to Vogue, portraiture is once again in fashion and I’m getting fanciful notions about having one done. It was after seeing Ulalena that Sundram saw how, “people were coming out all jazzed-up.” He wanted to offer them something for them to take home, but do something more thoughtful than print a T-shirt. So he called Dennis Preussler, the Ulalena manager, who was looking for an artist. Preussler allowed Sundram access to film and photographs of the show as well as the cast. “Steve’s paintings truly capture the depth of Hawaiian history and culture in addition to the excellence of Ulalena,” Preussler said. Sundram’s current project is called “Myths of the Seven Seas.” It’s inspired by

his love of the movie trilogy Pirates of the Caribbean. “I loved the imagination and the blend of fantasy and realism, which is how I endeavor to paint,” he said. “I love including the ships from that century. They have such character.” “Myths of the Seven Seas” will also feature a mini movie, complete with a sound track and text about the mythology behind each painting. Each one transports the viewer into a world of pirate ships, high seas and adventure. Before leaving his home, Sundrum opened a door to a room filled floor to ceiling with merchandise, all bearing his handy work. “Do you like puzzles?” he asked. Christmas shopping will be a snap this year.

Estrogen and other problems The Tide is High [DVD] Stephanie Sanchez, lovingly deemed “Hawai‘i’s Funniest Actress,” kind of reminds me of a local, pre-ghoul-husband Jennifer Lopez–at least in the looks department. She stars in The Tide is High, a local sitcom produced by Jon Brekke, Michael Wurth and Bree Bumatai. The original music for the show is by Barry Flanagan. The Tide is High revolves around two best friends (played by Sanchez and Jenn Boneza) who open a coffee shop in Honolulu. I’ve been trying to figure out how to describe this show. My initial thought is that its kind of Saved by the Bell meets Friends. The humor is family-friendly, but adolescent. Hawai‘i tweens will probably get a kick out of the show. I’m hoping that it lasts long enough to gel and develop into something as entertaining as it potentially can be.

Lilikoi [CD] I could gush about Na Hoku Hanohano winner Paula Fuga forever. Her album Lilikoi is the absolute bomb. Fuga’s vocals are chilling and soothing all at once. So many of her songs give me chicken skin, especially her title song “Lilikoi.” On this album, Fuga’s message is empowering, yet very vulnerable. She sings like a woman whose heart has been broken, but is strong enough to get up and say, “I can change my own world even if I hurt inside.” Her style ranges from soulful ballads to classic island roots–sometimes all mixed in. She’s been compared to Fiona Apple, and while similar, I think she sounds better. If I had to pick my two favorites songs of Fuga’s, I would say “Tangerine”—which is about lost love and saying goodbye—and “Sweetness,” a classic love song that’s sung with so much power it’ll make you instantly randy. Don’t believe me? Check it out yourself.

How to Tell if Your Boyfriend is the Antichrist [BOOK] Ladies, this little manual by Patricia Carlin is a must-have for your dating arsenal. Not only does the book expose key traits that may prove your boyfriend (or hubby) is a serial killer, pimp, cult leader, ex-convict, hit man, narcissist, nympho, vampire, the antichrist or is simply trying to kill you, it raises the question, “If he is, should I leave?” If you’re wondering whether your BF is married with children, look for these signs: crumbs in the backseat; wears novelty boxers; Care Bears bandage on his shaving cut; automatically takes out your trash after you’ve had sex because he assumes it’s Tuesday. This book is more than handy, it’s priceless.

I SOLD A $365,000 CONDO with a $9 classified ad in MauiTime!

Josh Jerman, Realtor (S)



SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) Some months back I decided I was bored with my summer birthday and resolved to be a Scorpio this year. I chose your sign not only because I wish I was as sexy as all of you, but because I’ve always had tremendous respect for Scorpios—mostly because of your conviction, passion, and willingness to explore nearly every nook and cranny of your personality, no matter how extreme. Since then, though, I’ve encountered several Scorpios who were indecisive, lackluster, and afraid of their own shadows. That’s right, some members of your hot little tribe aren’t living up to the hype. You’re not one of those, are you? Step it up, just in case.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) This week, be a skunk. As you contemplate new defense mechanisms to protect you from the rough and tumble world, forego anything like claws, venom, and spiky fur. Go for something essentially benign, yet just as effective. I’m not suggesting you skip showers for a week (though that might work, too). However, I do believe there are non-violent, and possibly humorous, ways to keep at bay those you don’t want around. When those undesirables start walking swiftly in the other direction the second they spot you, you’ll know you your way of doing that.


Call and place your classified ad today!

We know you have staying power. But this week let’s talk about the joy of quitting. I hope at some point you’ve experienced the euphoria of shrugging off the shackles of an oppressively bad job and finally telling your crappy boss exactly what you think of him. This week there’s pleasure and benefit to be had in quitting something that’s played a central role in your life for too long (if you haven’t quit smoking and would like to, give it a try now). Don’t be afraid of your attachments. Cutting free of them won’t be a hardship. It’ll be bliss.

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) There are now more overweight people in the world than underweight people. There are of course still hungry people all over, but in general the world’s population—even in developing nations—is fat and getting fatter. Cross-cultural trends (overwhelming consumption of high-calorie beverages, for example) are slathering pounds on people all over the world. Your own life’s on this track, too. I’m not saying you need to lose weight, necessarily. I’m just pointing out that your bad habits (of thought and practice) are starting to outweigh your good ones. See if you can tip that balance back, before you break the scale.

PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) You’re too hard on yourself. It’s good to strive for positive changes in your life, but attempting to do so by making yourself feel guilty, obligated, or lame just won’t work. Those strategies might do in a pinch, but to create lasting, beneficial changes in your life you’ve got to come from a more positive place. You know what’s best for you, and what you’ve got to do. What’s left is to quit dragging your feet and get it done. Be as supportive and positive with yourself as you can. You need all the encouragement you can get; even if it has to come from somewhere within you, that’s better than nothing.

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Rams are vulnerable. Most people don’t know that, because you’ve got these big curly metaphorical horns that you can use to bust some serious ass. Since on some levels you’re so badass, some people overestimate your emotional toughness. Your skin’s not as thick as they think it is, and you can be wounded by a lot of the shit that comes your way. Don’t be afraid of your sensitivity. A tough guy or gal with a secretly warm squishy heart is incredibly attractive. Let people know it’s there, not just so they’ll go easier on you, but hopefully so they’ll get into bed with you, too.

TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) You know that nest egg/emergency fund you’ve got squirreled away somewhere? Dip into it. You have the chance to dramatically improve your life right now. I know it’s a risk, tapping into that cache for anything less than whatever it was intended for—and you must strictly forbid yourself from ever doing it again—but just this once it might be worth it. The way you live is too safe, anyway. Live it up, a little, joyfully, firmly banishing guilt or anxiety. You’ll be able to recuperate the money you spent—and because of how you spent it, you’ll have a lot more fun than you did the first time around.

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Forget preemptive strikes. Breaking up with your lover before they dump you or quitting your job before you get fired may seem like a good idea, but it’s not. In this case, your paranoid fantasies about what you think will happen aren’t entirely accurate. The conclusion you fear can still be prevented, and rushing towards it and making sure it’ll happen is simply not the appropriate solution. Forget that selfdefeating bullshit. This week, defy your cynicism and self-doubt and behave as if everything will work out beautifully, instead of willfully manifesting the worst-case scenario. Things might not work out, despite your best efforts—but at least you’ll have allowed for the possibility.

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Crack that whip. It’s going to take all of your best goading, pleading, nagging, cajoling, and bribery to keep yourself on track this week. It’s in your best interest that you do, though, since the path you’ve chosen is a positive one for you, even if it’s difficult. It’d be a shame to give up now (even though the naughtiest and laziest parts of you think throwing in the towel would be a brilliant idea), since you’ve already put in so much time and energy. You’re almost to the home stretch. Kick your own ass and get there. You’ll be glad you did; the last ten miles are all downhill.

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) Change your passwords. It’s in your nature to be trusting of other people—and you should. Most people, especially the people you surround yourself with, are trustworthy and suspecting them of anything shady would be insulting. Don’t get paranoid. However, it’s also better to be safe than sorry; it’d take only one miserable asshole to shatter your faith in humankind, when the vast majority of us are actually deserving of that faith. Change your passwords. Also take other reasonable precautions to keep yourself safe. Then you can relax and enjoy all the people who’d never steal from you—and know that you’re secure from the one or two who might try.

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22)

Maui’s Online TV Station

Don’t be a perfectionist, unless you like screwing yourself over. Life is imperfect. Accept that, and you’ll be much, much happier. Perfectionists defeat themselves almost all of the time. They’ll take something that’s almost perfect, and ruin it with their attempts to improve it further. Know when to stop and settle. 98% of what you hoped for is better than what you’d end up with while striving for 100%. I know there’s part of you that’s into the whole self-sabotage thing, but I hope you’re working on outgrowing that. Here’s one step along the way.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) This situation has an expiration date. I don’t know whether that’s good news or bad news, but it is what it is. There are ways you can postpone the inevitable, if you want to; stick that carton of milk in the a very cold fridge and it won’t go bad nearly as fast as it would sitting on a sunny windowsill. But eventually that milk will become sour and undrinkable no matter what. So what to do now that you know the carton of milk in your hands is about to go bad? Well, that’s up to you. You can stash it in that cold fridge and only sip it on odd-numbered days, trying to stretch it out as long as possible, or you can just gulp it all down now and get it over with. Whatever you do, enjoy it to the best of your ability—and when it’s gone, let it go.

NOVEMBER 8, 2007



I don’t do fancy often. I rarely mess around with makeup, and if I wear a skirt to work, it’s only because all my jeans are dirty. It’s not that I don’t like to primp; it’s just that preening makes me nervous. So, this past Saturday, getting ready for a benefit for Imua Family Services at the Hui No Eau was a big deal. The process began at the Queen Ka‘ahumanu Center, where I was on the hunt for a dress to wear. I have a ton of dresses in my closet, but I pretty much hate them all. They’re either too boring, “hippie” or short for an event labeled, “Evening Aloha Attire–Black Tie Optional.” As we were driving to the mall, the hubby gave me the run-down of his outfit, just in case I wanted to “plan around that.” He likes to match. I do not. Matching is for old couples and twins, which I am half of neither. About 15 minutes into “the hunt” I loudly declared in the Junior’s section of Macy’s, “I fricking hate clothes shopping!” My husband gave me a pat on the rump and mumbled something about this being one of the reasons why he married me. I didn’t want to ruin our moment of camaraderie by explaining that part of the reason why I hate clothes shopping so much is that I have expensive tastes–the only dress that I found even a teeny bit attractive in Macy’s was $138. I didn’t even try it on, because–like naming a stray kitten–it would only make me attached. While I have lavish tastes, I’m also a complete cheap-ass and ended up buying a dress at Forever 21 that was on clearance for $7.99. This greatly pleased the husband, who is even more of a cheap-ass than I am. The problem was that, since it was on clearance, it was the last one and one size too big in the (surprise!) boob department. I checked the tag, which labeled the dress cotton and warned that if I washed it and put it through the dryer, unspeakable things would happen. And by unspeakable, I assumed they meant, “shrink.” Back home, when it came out of the dryer, it was a little smaller but not quite small enough so my sister-in-laws expertly folded and tucked, then used three gargantuan safety pins to secure everything into place. It worked. On went the black eyeliner, red lipstick and fuck-me pumps. “Wow,” said the Hubby. “You’re gonna be the hottest chick there.” It would have been a fantastic compliment, if he hadn’t sounded so surprised. The event was beautiful and just as fancy as I assumed, but a lot mellower. The wine was flowing and the food was delicious and the majority of people seemed to be having a lot of fun by the time the live auction came around. Ahhh, the live auction. It was like watching a cockfight or a power-lifting contest, but with money. These people were crazy! It was totally awesome and way more entertaining than I had dreamed possible. I literally had to sit on my hands because I was so overcome in the spirit of splurging ridiculous amounts of money to support a worthy cause that I couldn’t trust myself not to raise my hand and yell something like, “What the heckl, I’ll go 5,000 and 50 dollars!” to which everyone would clap and hoot their approval, right before my husband guts me with a butter knife. After the auction, the Barefoot Natives performed. It was the first time that I had ever seen them live and was seriously impressed with the whole thing. Plus Willie K is kind of hot, even if I can’t figure out why. Starr Begley is searching for the elusive money tree, the fountain of youth, and her Gucci sunglasses. MTW
