Malama Kaua`i

Moral fixation

Harvesting ideas from the Garden Isle ravel always provides the gift of a differing point of view. Five days on the island of Kauai over the Thanksgiving holiday offered ample perspective on opportunities for community sustainability and ways to support traditional approaches to modern issues. Apart from the big box stores and malls of Lihue, Kauai has, for the most part, retained its rural character and small town charm. Years after pulling together to rebuild after Hurricane Iniki, there is still a perceptible spirit of cooperation and community. Posters announced an upcoming book-signing event for The Superferry Chronicles, which offers a recent example of Kauaians striving to keep hold of natural and cultural resources and to maintain a

Part of what makes the LC so easy to ridicule is the undercurrent of holier-than-thou piety that runs through many of the department’s decisions. Rather than tackling its job from a purely pragmatic standpoint, the LC seems determined to weigh things against its own obtuse ethical code.


Kauaians are pushing for sustainability and a sense of shared purpose. Common Ground, where the old Kilauea Agronomics Guava Kai plantation facility is transitioning into a Sustainability

“Re-localization” is an opportunity to unite the community around common goals of a healthy environment, respect for culture and a high quality of life. simple way of life that would be jeopardized by an influx of Oahu residents. Two years ago, in June 2006, Kauai hosted a two-day sustainability conference, conceived by a group of community futurists, including former Mayor and current Councilmember Jo Ann Yukimura. A cross-section of attendees included Princeville owner Jeff Stone, Angela Vento of the Sheraton, most of the Kauai County Councilmembers, Sen. Russell Kokubun of the Big Island, who spearheaded the Hawaii 2050 Sustainability Master Plan, and the Kauai Chamber of Commerce. The close-knit community of the Garden Isle used the gathering as a springboard to establish a new nonprofit, Malama Kaua`i. The upstart organization’s goals include educating the community about sustainability issues, connecting with other groups and enhancing collaborative efforts. Malama Kaua`i is also focused on pushing for local food production, renewable energy and economic revitalization. Originally bestowed with some “angel” startup funding, financial support is now diversified through donations, foundation grants and County assistance. Offices are based at

Resource Center. Three full-time employees are now on board and are undertaking Malama Kaua`i’s current projects. xecutive Director Keone Kealoha listed a few of the group’s initiatives: a Green Business Program in partnership with the Kauai Office of Economic Development that offers resources, education and certification to local businesses interested in sustainable practices; a Green Map project to highlight businesses that have met baseline environmental criteria; the “Keep It Local” campaign to revitalize and relocalize goods and services and strengthen the community’s economy; the Youth Empowerment Program to engage high school students in sustainable practices; and a KCCR bi-monthly sustainability radio show. Malama Kauai has also organized community workshops, conferences and sponsors the quarterly Eco-Roundtable, a public forum for sharing information, networking, building coalitions and taking action on issues. Project Supervisor Andrea Brower, born and raised on Kauai, was recently honored by the Sierra Club-Kauai as activist of the year. She traveled to Quebec, Canada earlier this year as a delegate to the World



Youth Congress, and also attended the Bioneers Conference in California. Brower told me that while Malama Kaua`i’s efforts span issues including energy, housing, water resources, planning and culture, much of the focus for the next few months is on food and agriculture. They are helping to develop the master plan for the 75-acre Kilauea Ag Park, promised to the community more than two decades ago. Efforts are also under way to build consensus for revising county zoning ordinances to allow more options for farm worker housing. The Common Ground site also provides a venue for gardening and composting classes, as well as a community kitchen. The former processing shed serves as a distribution site for a Community Supported Agriculture effort, the Kauai Farmers Co-op. There, customers pick up a weekly box that includes local fruits, salad and cooking greens, root vegetables, culinary herbs and seasonal specialties. Jillian Sears is the founder and director of the Seed to Table Service-Learning Program. The 12-week “hands-on” apprentice program provides an opportunity for farmer training, with an emphasis on raising vegetables, flowers and herbs with more vitality than shipped-in produce. “Our goal,” says Sears, “is to share the living art of farming.” Her own farming roots go back to a childhood spent in the Caribbean; her family moved there from New York when she

Let’s grab an example from the department’s rulebook. Here’s how it defines “immoral conduct”: “any act which is contrary to good morals; inconsistent with the rules of the liquor commission and principles of morality…” Did you catch that sleight of hand? In one swift sentence they managed to conflate “principles of morality” (presumably in the vague, universal sense) with their collection of often arbitrary, heavy-handed, ill-conceived rules. All of the sudden the LC isn’t just a public agency, they’re arbiters of right and wrong. They tell you where to dance, they tell you what to sing—they’re the judge, jury, Mom and God all rolled into one. OK, we’re being dramatic. But really, what is the LC doing defining “immoral conduct” in the first place? That isn’t their job. That isn’t any government agency’s job, not in a free society. This, folks, is the problem in a nutshell, the recipe for disaster if you will: an inflated sense of power mixed with a false sense of moral responsibility seasoned with a dash of good old fashioned corruption. None of this is new of course. In an issue dedicated to Repeal Day, it’s fitting to note that overzealous moralizing and the policing of alcohol have gone hand-inhand for generations. And, it’s safe to say, that isn’t gonna change anytime soon.

-Jacob Shafer

ROBREPORT was 12. There, they raised hot and bell peppers, flowers and herbs and produced specialty lines of marinades, potpourri and spices. They also tended chickens, goats and rabbits. For now, most of the growing and distribution is in the Kilauea area. Ultimately, the models may be applied in each of the seven districts, or ahupua`a, on the island. pecial care is given to each individual garden bed, and crops, once harvested, are followed with a cover crop, or “green manure,” to replenish the soil, which is also rested and rotated. Rather than single crop farming, Sears employs methods which are biointensive, bio-dynamic and create inter-planted “food forests.” The hundreds of acres of the guava plantation are gradually being replaced with forestry crops, such as mahogany. The old guava trees are systematically being chipped, and long-time composter Mark Freeman of Heart & Soul Organics is working long windrows into fertile compost. The former Guava Kai site also has yielded to hydroponic and greenhouse crops, and to the Rainbow Tree school. Brower believes that Kauai, much like the rest of the world, is at a critical juncture, and that “re-localization” is an opportunity to unite the community around common goals of a healthy environment, respect for culture and a high quality of life. Paramount to the process is plugging the leaks in the economy that spring each time goods or services are imported. A 2008 study by the Rocky Mountain Institute indicated that Kauaians import close to 90 percent of their food, as well as fertilizers, seeds and other necessary farming inputs. Brower writes that agricultural relocalization on Kauai will include “more farmers’ markets, community kitchens in every town, community



gardens, preservation and restoration of critical water systems, seed banks, preservation of diverse crop species, eliminating reliance on imported fertilizers and other inputs, adjusting our diets to be based on what can be grown locally, solutions for affordable farmworker housing, programs that provide farmers with access to affordable land, training and education programs, coordinated marketing and distribution and consumer education about the importance of buying local.” Malama Kauai also hosts a series of do-it-yourself skills workshops, as part of a “re-skilling” effort to relearn practices that previous generations took for granted. Workshop topics include: basic gardening and cooking; home energy efficiency; building solar water heaters; raising chickens; bicycle maintenance;

using coconuts; installing grey water systems; sewing; using la`au lapa`au (Hawaiian medicinal plants); and creating zero waste homes. Brower believes that in evaluating the wellbeing of the community, it is worthwhile to start with some basic questions: Are there meaningful jobs that pay living wages? Can residents find affordable homes? Does money spent here stay here and build the local economy? Do residents have access to affordable, fresh, healthy foods? Is the ocean in which we swim, surf and fish clean? How about the water we drink? She notes that in answering these questions, it becomes apparent that despite tremendous economic wealth, our current systems are highly unsustainable and inequitable.

“Sustainable economic self-reliance,” says Brower, “is achieved by strengthening and creating green local businesses that produce necessary commodities [like] food, electricity [and] building materials, buying from them and enhancing citizen participation in local government and the economy. We all play an important role in this process, be it through our consumer choices, our involvement with government or our grassroots actions to bring about change.” Brower values the strength of building coalitions with others and in replicating working models to adapt to regional needs. In charting a sustainable course for Maui’s future, we may do well to share the broad ideas and initiatives of our neighbors on the Garden Isle. MTW

NEWSOFTHEWEIRD TECHNOLOGICAL TEDDIES The Brazilian designer Lucia Lorio introduced women’s lingerie in October containing a global positioning device to enable the wearer to be tracked by satellite. The creator said the password-protected lace bodice would make it easier for women kidnapped by thugs or terrorists to be located and rescued. Critics called it a virtual chastity belt, primarily of service to insecure males curious to know where their women are. (However, the wearer can manually turn the device off.) Another anti-terror lingerie product may also surface someday, based on a 2007 U.S. patent issued to a Plainfield, Ill., company for a bra whose cups could also function as air-filtration systems in case of chemical attacks.


been out of work for 15 years, and his wife, Tracey, has never held a paid job, yet they receive the equivalent of $48,000 in various government benefits, which The Daily Mail said would require a tax-paying family to earn the equivalent of $68,000 a year to draw. The Daily Mail reporter also noted that the Tate home is immaculate and the Cromptons’ home, messy.

DYING FOR CARE Two of Oregon’s unique public health markers clashed dramatically for resident Barbara Wagner this summer when she was informed that the universal medical care available to everyone in the state (but with certain service restrictions) would not pay for her expensive lung cancer drug (because her five-year survival likelihood was poor), but was told, at the same time, that the state would pay for any necessary drugs under its Death With Dignity Law (i.e., suicide).

TERMINATOR 4: OOPS Facing a state budget crisis in July, California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger fired about 10,000 temporary and parttime workers and ordered the 200,000 permanent employees to be paid only the minimum wage of $6.55 an hour until the legislature passed a crisis-solving budget. However, a week later the State Controller John Chiang pointed out that state payroll records could not be changed to accommodate the cut because they were written in the antiquated COBOL computer language, and virtually the only state employees who knew the code were some of the parttimers Schwarzenegger had just fired.

SENIOR MOMENTS (1) In October in Vancouver, Wash., a 74year-old man actually succeeded in his mission to unclog, with his hands, the garbage chute from his 10th floor apartment, but then he pushed too far. When rescue workers arrived, only the man’s feet and lower legs were visible, with his wife holding on for dear life. (2) In August, a 78-year-old woman apparently misread the signs at Arlanda airport in Stockholm, Sweden, and placed herself on a baggage belt, which led to a chute, but she was only slightly injured and did not miss her flight.

PARTY ON, GARTH! FAMILY VALUES London’s Daily Mail profiled two 10children British families in October to illustrate the inconsistencies of government benefit awards. Sean and Anne Tate and their children live on Sean’s truck-driver salary of the equivalent of about $23,000 a year, plus the government’s standard perchild benefit. Harry Crompton has


Bridgeport, Conn., police arrested Michael Smith, 47, in October for breaking into Holy Ghost Deliverance Church. Smith explained that he was passing the church, spotted a drum set through a window, and could not restrain himself from trying it out. According to a Boston Globe report, officers found Smith “in a spirited solo after the church’s alarm system went off.” MTW

football; on the other hand, it’s a great excuse to get together with family and loved ones and stuff our fat faces and watch football. Also, as the name would imply, it’s a good time to give thanks. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the many people I’ve met thus far on Maui, both the friendly ones who made me feel welcome and the not-so-friendly ones who reminded me I’ve still got a lot to learn about this amazing, complicated place. Also, thanks to the sun, sand and surf for making even the worst days pretty freakin’ sweet. And, if you’ll forgive a moment of unabashed sappiness, thanks to my beautiful family—you make it worth the while.


WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 26 I was wondering when this was going to happen: The Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau has finally seized on the fact that the President-elect was born and (partly) raised in the Aloha State. After drawing criticism for dragging its feet, the Bureau set up a Web site ( that highlights some of Obama’s favorite restaurants and recreational hotspots on Oahu. On the page you’ll find shots of Obama eating shave ice and body surfing and sightseeing with his family. What you won’t find are his awesome high school yearbook photos, which surfaced a while back but stayed mostly under the radar. Some fuss was made over one picture in particular that prominently featured a beer bottle and rolling papers. To which I say: yawn. We’re about to do away with a frat boy President who, before he found Jesus, snorted coke and got more DUIs than Nick Nolte. Are we really going to make a big fuss about a little weed? No, the image I love is a group shot featuring young Barry with big hair and an even bigger ‘70s collar. Look for yourself—that’s our new commanderin-chief. Pretty cool.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 27 Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. To be honest, I have mixed feelings about this holiday. On the one hand, there’s something rather sick and hollow about commemorating the deceptively congenial beginnings of the Native American genocide by stuffing our fat faces and watching

Hyperbole gone wild: The Maui Planning Commission gave its stamp of approval to a transportation center set to be built next to the Puunene Sugar Mill, though some expressed concerns over whether the center would be an eyesore for tourists as they fly into nearby Kahului Airport. The fact that that’s a major concern is troubling enough, but then we arrive at this gem from Commissioner Bruce U’u, quoted in The Maui News: “[This] has to be the ugliest place on earth.” OK, granted that particular stretch of turf isn’t the prettiest Maui has to offer and slapping down a big parking lot ain’t going to gussy it up. But Bruce, my man, if you think that’s the ugliest place on earth you have either never left Maui or you have the most suspect aesthetic in the history of the universe.

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 29 I do my little anti-consumerism rant over in the Business End so I’ll spare you here. But let me just say this headline from today’s Maui News is sadly telling: “With Thanksgiving over, it’s time for shopping.” OK, I lied. I am going to rant a bit more. The problem isn’t the promotion of shopping per se. The problem is the indiscriminate promotion of shopping, the notion that it doesn’t matter where you shop or what you buy, just so long as you’re out there waiting in lines and spending money, quite possibly on things you don’t need and can’t afford that were made by underpaid children in China who are right now dying from chemical exposure so you can have some crappy piece of plastic you’ll probably lose or throw away before the next Black Friday and that’s the whole idea because why keep old stuff when you can buy new stuff? Whew. Now I’m done.

TUESDAY, DECEMBER 2 MONDAY, DECEMBER 1 Obama keeps talking about the “new dawn of American leadership,” and I want to believe him. But from keeping Bush’s Secretary of Defense to tapping someone named Clinton to be the nation’s top diplomat (a long-anticipated move made official today), this is looking an awful lot like an old dawn.

Always sad when someone like that leaves us, but the hope is that the spirit and the message live on. MTW

“ISLANDS AT RISK” Genetice Engineering in Hawai‘i by Na Maka O Ka ‘Aina & Earthjustice

The biggest business news of the week, at least in the Aloha State, is Hawaiian Telecom filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. The telecommunications giant, which employs 1,400 people and serves just under 300,000 customers, reported a $34 million third quarter loss. That brings HawTel’s total losses for the year past the $100 million mark. “[This] filing allows the company to reduce its level of debt and reorganize its business, so we can emerge…stronger and more financially secure,” CEO Eric Yeaman said in a prepared statement. Guess that would be the glass half full analysis.

So Black Friday came and went, and the good news for retailers nationwide is that sales were up about 3 percent over last year. Hooray, we all went and did our patriotic duty and bought stuff. Now the ugly part: As you probably heard, a Wal Mart employee in New York was trampled to death by a rushing horde of shoppers who were apparently too psyched to buy crappy discounted items to notice that a man was being crushed beneath their feet. Adding insult to injury, when informed of the death and asked to leave the store, a number of shoppers reportedly protested and insisted that they be allowed to stay and make their purchases. Wow. I know shopping makes our market economy go ‘round (George Bush told us so) and that people like to buy things, especially when those things are on sale. But this goes past all that to a dark, dark place, where consumerism has corrupted us and obscured our humanity. Some may want to shrug it off as an isolated incident, but other events, like a shooting at a Toys “R” Us in California, put a dent in that argument. Not saying murderous rage lies in the heart of every holiday bargain hunter, but when this kind of thing happens and it’s only sort of shocking, it’s time for a little collective soul searching.

Here’s one for fans of blatant corporate backstabbing: Mesa Air Group, which operates the budget inter-island airline go!, is attempting to buy the Aloha Airlines name in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, as reported in Pacific Business News. It’s a tangled web. First, go! helped take down Aloha by slashing fares and, according to a lawsuit filed by Aloha’s majority owner, stealing trade secrets. Now, go! wants to re-brand itself using the identity of its vanquished competitor. How deliciously ruthless.

A new report from the Hawaii arm of the National Agricultural Statistics Service tells us what we already knew: it’s not a good time to be looking for work in the agricultural sector. Hawaii’s total ag workforce, including self-employed farmers, is down about 6 percent over the same time last year. Pineapple and sugar cane saw an even steeper drop-off, about 13 percent, in the wake of layoffs at Maui Land & Pineapple and the move by Kauai-based Gay & Robinson to end sugar operations after more than 100 years in business. Is it time to re-evaluate our farming practices yet? MTW

vs. Can vs. Bottle The battle rages on…

In honor of Repeal Day, we profile the makers of Maui-based spirits—and do a little sipping of our own… Booze. Even the word is awesome. And the stuff? Well, it’s even awesomer. Whether you’re laboring to make it through a particularly dull party or family get-together, trying to gather up the gumption to mingle with potential mates or, having mingled, mate with a mate, booze is your best friend. And also, quite possibly, your worst enemy. That’s the thing about booze—it’s a contradiction in a bottle (or can, highball glass or foil-lined cardboard box, depending on your persuasion). Booze can lift your spirits like a champagne bubble or sending you spiraling into an ethanolsoaked rage. Booze can help you dance ‘til dawn, secure in the superiority of your patented “dice roll” move, or it can leave you dryheaving into a public trashcan minus an article of clothing and your dignity. Here on Maui—home of Barmuda triangle, the patented green bottle, the happy hour mai tai special—booze is the lubricant that helps tourists enjoy the sunset a bit more and locals numb their desire to do mean things to said tourists. Why are we telling you all this? Well, December 5 is Repeal Day, the anniversary of the day in 1933 when the United States Constitution was altered to negate the 18th amendment and re-legalize alcohol. In honor of this momentous occasion (and since we’re in the midst of the holidays, another wonderful excuse to get tipsy) we’ve decided to dedicate this issue to what Charlotte’s Web author E.B. White once called “the elixir of quietude” (hey, you don’t invent an elaborate fantasy centered on a talking pig while sober). In the following pages, we’ll take a look at some island-based libation providers that labor tirelessly to slake Maui’s thirst. As a disclaimer: we know booze isn’t all good. For some people it’s a serious problem. By celebrating it, we’re not trying to belittle or deny its damaging effects. Obviously your liver—not to mention all the exes whose numbers you haven’t deleted from your contact list—would be better off if you avoided the stuff entirely. But, as we said, that’s the inherent contradiction of booze: it’s simultaneously wonderful and terrible. Kind of like life.

Maui Brewing Company A beer for every occasion… By Jacob Shafer

riting a story about Maui Brewing Co. is an exercise in choosing an angle. There’s the fact that the company, unlike many of its competitors, is local not just on the label but inside the can (for more on those cans, see sidebar). With their humble but fully legit brewing facility in Lahaina and a philosophy of using Maui ingredients, labor and goods whenever possible, this is one product that can brand itself as a true part of the island without being disingenuous. Then there’s MBC’s commitment to sustainability and environmentally friendly business practices—again, one that extends beyond lip service and informs nearly every aspect of the way they operate. (Refreshingly, rather than long speeches about melting glaciers and future generations, owner Garrett Marrero admits that being green is good for the bottom line and that’s a big part of why they do it.)


All of the above are perfectly fine excuses to give the company ink. But none of it would matter without one essential element: the beer. You can be local and sustainable ‘til the hops wither on the vine, but if the beer isn’t up to par, it won’t do you much good. Fortunately for MBC, the product lives up to the hype. The best part is, they’ve got an array of concoctions to choose from, meaning whatever your mood (unless, you know, you’re in the mood to not drink) there’s a can of Maui Brew Co. beer for you.

Line up 20 drinkers and ask them to list the characteristics of cheap beer, and the answer you’ll almost certainly get across the board is: it comes in a can. Whether it’s the flimsiness factor, the similarity to soda pop or just some passed-down-through-the-generations stereotype, conventional wisdom holds that you’re not drinking good beer unless it’s coming from a tap or a bottle. That assumption may be about to change. A growing chorus of voices within the brewing industry is calling BS on the notion that glass equals class. Cans, they argue, are not only lighter and more durable, and thus easier to transport, they’re also a superior way to store beer. Oxygen is beer’s worst enemy—the more that seeps in, and the more CO2 that seeps out, the greater the likelihood of a skunky product. And while bottling practices have been honed and perfected, even in a bestcase-scenario world, that little bit of air at the top of the bottle is a ticking time bomb waiting to corrupt the entire beer. Cans, on the other hand, can be sealed airtight. They also let in little or no light, another force that can turn tasty ale into undrinkable swill. Locally, Maui Brewing Co. swears by cans. It’s been an uphill battle for them; owner Garrett Marrero says he frequently has to deal with skeptics who dismiss MBC’s beer without trying it, the ultimate case of judging a book by its cover. (Marrero claims to have won a few converts by taking a can, pouring it into a glass and telling people it’s from the tap before revealing in “Pepsi challenge” fashion that they’ve just enjoyed—gasp!—a canned beer.) Nationally, the big brewers seem to be catching on. Budweiser recently launched an ad campaign touting the merits of cans, and several companies have released aluminum bottles to help ease what many see as an inevitable transition. Bottles won’t disappear overnight, but their days may be numbered. As Marrero puts it: “It’s better for the environment, it’s better for the beer. Why wouldn’t you?” -JS

Let’s take a look at a few of the usual suspects: The Sunday afternoon at the beach beer The sun and surf are up, the grill is hot and your cooler is full of Big Swell IPA. A hop-heavy beer that still finishes smooth, Big Swell is the perfect accoutrement for seared meat and a scoop of sand-coated potato mac salad. It’ll help you tie on a buzz without weighing you down, a decidedly good thing if you’re planning to keep the tail end-of-the-weekend party going until the last football game is played (or beyond). The Wednesday evening at home beer You just dragged your ass back from work; your feet hurt and your head doesn’t feel much better. It’s time to settle into that dent on the couch and get your clicker finger in motion. Your companion? A frothy glass (or three) of Coconut Porter. A dark, toasty blend that plays notes of chocolate and coffee on your taste buds, the porter is rich without being syrupy and exceedingly drinkable yet complex enough to help you forget the weekend’s still 48 hours away. The Friday before you go out beer It’s here! Time to shake the sand out of your shorts, pull a comb through your salt-tangled hair (maybe) and tip back a few Bikini Blonde Lagers before you hit the town. An extremely light beer that doesn’t taste like bitter dishwater (we’re looking at you, “lite” beers), it’s the ideal pre-party lubricant, one that’ll get your motor started without flooding the engine. The time to seriously drown your sorrows beer Disclaimer: you’ve gotta love hops. If you don’t, steer clear; if you do, and especially if you’re in need of a little memory-clouding liquid therapy, turn to the Double Overhead IPA, the “Big Braddah” of the above mentioned IPA. Packing a hefty 8.5 percent alcohol content, with hints of fruit rafting on the raging hop rapids, this is not a beer to be taken lightly.

Tedeschi winery Maui’s only vineyard deals with grape expectations By Kate Bradshaw

he structure that houses the tasting room at Tedeschi Winery was built in 1874 for King Kalakua, whose epic taste for champagne and gambling earned him the handle “the Merrie Monarch.” The vast and gently sloping grounds surrounding the building are manicured, wrought with florid blooms and massive trees swaying in the Upcountry breeze. The foyer of this former royal vacation cottage is a museum that tells the story of the vineyard, which sits on Ulupalakua Ranch’s 20,000 acres: Captain James Makee’s acquisition of the land, the king’s legendary romps, the paniolos. The women behind the wine bar pour splashes of product for visitors, many of them on their way back from Hana. A bus appears in the parking lot and unloads a gaggle of tourists. The tasting room is awash with knee socks and Boston accents. Elbowroom is scarce around the bar.


acationers may flood the place at regular intervals during business hours and bottles of Tedeschi wine may sell like crazy at ABC stores statewide, but the winery is more than a novel way for tourists to catch a buzz. The site is an integral part of Maui’s history. It is Maui’s only vineyard and one of only a few in the state. The challenges that this wine maker faces parallel those currently impacting Maui as whole: declining tourism, the squeeze on ag lands that supply the winery with raw ingredients, tough choices regarding whether or not to bring in materials from offisland suppliers and a climate that makes it tough to grow certain crops. “Growing grapes is probably the most difficult thing we do here,” says Tedeschi president Paula Hegele. “We have very small yields. The soil is fabulous, [but] the weather is just too nice.” Some grapes refuse to grow in the remote Upcountry vineyard, including, Hegele says, a recent stubborn crop of chardonnay grapes that didn’t make the grade. Grapes lack the thick skin that would allow them to withstand the humidity. Plus the vines need the winter months to rest. Yet the winery still manages to crank out 24,00030,000 cases of wine each year. Of course, a significant volume of Tedeschi’s output— and the winery’s most recognizable product—doesn’t utilize one speck of smashed grape. Hegele says that 60 to 65 percent of the bottles Tedeschi ships out annually are bottles of Tedeschi’s signature wine, the Maui Blanc. The Maui Blanc is made from Mauigrown pineapples; it’s not just a white wine with hints of the fruit. Wine snobs may collectively scoff at the idea of pineapple wine. Some may be reminded of Boone’s Farm or Arbor Mist or some other liquid relic of adolescence. But they are


“Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut. - Ernest Hemingway

sorely mistaken, as the stuff is delightful. Not quite a dessert wine, its tartness parallels its sweetness. When former owner Emil Tedeschi opened shop in 1974 (producing sparkling wines only at that point) he had no idea that pineapple wine would become his thing. “They practiced and worked with pineapple because pineapple was available,” Hegele says. Soon sparkling pineapple wine, now the Hula O Maui, became the winery’s central product. But they quickly discontinued it. “They thought they would never be taken seriously if they kept doing pineapple,” Hegele said. In 1994 Hegele brought Hula O Maui back for the winery’s 20th anniversary celebration and decided to keep it on. A different challenge has come up of late: finding a new source for pineapple. Until recently, Maui Land & Pineapple, Maui’s only large-scale producer of pineapples, provided Tedeschi with a steady supply of preservative-free pineapple pulp. Now that the company is more land than pineapple Tedeschi must look elsewhere for this essential ingredient. Hegele says they’re well stocked with island-grown pineapple at the moment, but may have to bring in pineapples from Mexico or Thailand when the supply runs out—which obviously means that the product will no longer be completely local. Some people have suggested, Hegele says, that the winery move operations to the Mainland and slap a Maui label on their bottles. But that would clearly be deceptive, she says. One can find bottles of Tedeschi wine throughout the isles. Most grocery stores stock bottles of Ulupalakua Red, Hula O Maui, Maui Splash (pineapple wine with a bit of passion fruit) and Maui Blanc. As New Englanders meander through the winery’s expansive grounds, as day trippers from Waiehu knock back schwills of cuvee, the winery’s 23-acre vineyard is gravid with hope and uncertainty, much like the island on which the vines secure their stock.

Ocean Vodka

Braddah Kimo’s Rum

Classy vodka that still mixes with Sprite

Rum’s up for Haleakala Distillers

Not all vodkas are created equal. There’s the kind you buy in jugs, fifteen bucks a pop, and pour into vats of jungle juice. Then there’s the vodka that you stow in your freezer for long-term savoring, whether poured neat or shaken into a martini. Ocean, the only vodka made on Maui (though some ingredients are shipped in from afar), belongs to the latter category. The Kahului distillery responsible for its production utilizes certified organic grains (no official word on whether the lack of pesticides reduces hangovers) and desalinized ocean water. Probably not the cheapest distillation process. I set out to sample this locally produced spirit one recent weekend. My taste test took place during a gathering in the woods; an unconventional setting for such a venture to say the least. The challenge was giving a damn if I was drinking window cleaner or something derived from Martian rubies, given my surroundings. Plus, beer is usually my beverage of choice at forest gatherings. I had a choice of drinking the vodka neat or mixing it with either Diet Coke or Sprite. I went with Sprite for the most part. The drink went over well with my small group of associates, despite the lack of variety in terms of mixers. To some, especially me, straight vodka is the taste equivalent of being shot in the kneecaps. This may be why the stuff was used both as medicine and in gunpowder during the Middle Ages, according to the Gin and Vodka Association (UK) Web site. (Though to be fair, vodka is probably nothing like it was in the days of the Black Plague.) While Ocean certainly falls under the classy vodka umbrella by virtue of its production methods as well as its taste, mixing it with something like Sprite wasn’t as incongruous as one might think. Even with something as gnarly as Diet Coke the stuff holds its own. Perhaps its being made on Maui that gives it an unquantifiable ability to serve well at even the most laid-back, non-martini conducive situations. -KB

“I pity them greatly but I must be mum, for how could we do without sugar and rum?” - William Cowper Rum is an essential ingredient in many of the drinks that define Maui (from an alcohol standpoint at least). But odds are most of the pina coladas and mai tais you imbibe are made with rum that’s flown in from somewhere else. While they don’t yet make enough product to meet the entire island’s demand, if you want to go local with your next mixed drink, track down a bottle of Braddah Kimo’s. Brewed by Haleakala Distillers—a family-owned Upcountry outfit that defines mom and pop—the rum is made using Hawaii sugarcane and Maui water; it’s the only commercially available rum that’s distilled on-island. In 2007, Kimo’s “DaBomb,” a 155 proof kick in the pants, won a gold medal at the American Distilling Institute’s rum competition. The company’s dark and gold rums have also earned medals. But, as ever, the proof is in the bottle. We added a blender, a bag of ice, a couple Maui-grown pineapples and a Saturday evening and that bottle came through with flying colors. Or at least we think we saw some flying colors. -JS

Wolf at the door With a new album and growing appeal, Maui’s mellow folkster prepares to take the next step Though I had heard his music in passing on the radio and a friend’s iPod, I didn’t get a chance to see Micah Wolf live until a couple months ago. And, I’ll admit, it was completely unintentional. The wife and I had shoved plugs in our toddler’s ears and headed to a Steel Pulse show at the MACC. We were hoping to rekindle the flame of our reggae festival past, when we’d seen the legendary roots collective on more than one occasion, through a variety of chemically induced hazes. Though we wound up enjoying that blast from the past—even sans chemicals—what made the show stick in our memory was Wolf, who did a lengthy opening set. Gently strumming his guitar and filling the gaps between songs with mumbled offers of thanks to the cheering throng that had gathered in front of the stage, Wolf came across as less the emerging young folk rocker and more some humble dude from Upcountry who was surprised he got a gig. Wolf shouldn’t be surprised if his star continues to rise. And, if and when it does, his unassuming demeanor will surely be a major contributing factor. Wolf, whose second album, Beyond the Shores, came out earlier this month, is clearly a Maui product. His low-key, meandering rhythms and bouncy, introspective lyrics lead to inevitable

comparisons with Jack Johnson, another Hawaii-bred musician who has successfully traded on his sandy-toed, sunburned persona. There are undeniable similarities between the two artists, but Wolf isn’t some cookie cutter coattail rider; in fact, the more you listen to his music the less he sounds like Johnson, or any of the other folksy troubadours who’ve capitalizied on the music industry’s mellow dude renaissance.

Micah Wolf New album: Beyond the Shores Next gig: Dec. 10, 7:30pm, Cafe Marc Aurel, Wailuku Web site:

“One By One,” the signature track on Shores (it’s the one Wolf highlights on his Myspace page, the modern equivalent of sending it out to all the local radio stations) is a moody ballad, with earnest lyrics (“the world is dying from our hands/the world is crying make a stand”) that take aim at the greed and wastefulness of consumer culture. That’s dangerous territory for an artist to enter, a veritable minefield of potential clichés. But Wolf, mostly through his unrelenting unpretentiousness, manages to avoid sounding either preachy or maudlin. Wolf pulls off the political stuff, and clearly walks his talk; he’s involved in

numerous local social and environmental efforts. But musically, he’s at his best when he gets small and personal. “My Love,” an ode to messy, unrequited passion, once again displays Wolf’s ability to maneuver through well-traveled real estate while still making music that’s fresh and immediate. It’s easy to forgive the indulgences of a song with familiar subject matter if it feels like it came from a pure, original source. That’s definitely the case here. As a vocalist, Wolf stays within himself. His voice is easy and smooth, and though he sometimes labors to reach the high notes he never sounds forced or awkward. In fact, the occasional, non-abrasive cracks and stutters

only add to his guy-by-the-bonfire charm. This is the album you want to pop in on a drive out to Hana, the kind of music that will ease you into a lazy weekend with all the warmth and effortlessness of a dive into the waters of Baby Beach. There was one moment at the MACC show that exemplified Wolf’s appeal: he was winding down his set, preparing to cede the stage to Steel Pulse. As he launched into his final song of the evening, I lay back on the grass and stared up at the swaying palms, backed by a clear, warm, moonlit Maui night. And for a few fleeting minutes, the music and the place and the feeling became one thing. And the thing was good. MTW

HUNTER S. THOMPSON “Some people can accept [the death of Christmas], and some can’t. That is why God made whiskey, and also why Wild Turkey comes in $300 shaped canisters during most of the Christmas season.” Given my chosen career path it should be no surprise that a lot of my greatest friendships have been based, at least in part, on a shared love for the work of Hunter S. Thompson. I get Thompson quotes via text message at all hours from all time zones. A number of friends and former colleagues have done potentially irreversible harm to their bodies in attempts to emulate the father of Gonzo journalism, who in 2005 put a gun to his head and pulled the trigger. Thanks in part to titles like Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Thompson’s scathing commentaries on politics and pop culture are often overlooked. What stands out to many is the impossible amount of mind-altering substances the man ingested. While mood-elevating booze floats frequently on the surface of much if not most of his work, it’s easy to spot the undercurrents of desperation and doom that make his writing so powerful.

BENDER Fry: Why would a robot need to drink? Bender: I don’t need to drink. I can quit anytime I want. If we hadn’t included a cartoon robot this week’s edition of this column would have been a bit of a downer. We would hate to be responsible for bumming anyone out with such heavy things as the consequences of excess. (Consequences? What consequences?) Bender—one of the stars of Simpsons creator Matt Groening’s other show, Futurama—is so named ostensibly because he’s a robot who’s strong enough to bend steel. He also drinks like a fish and is awfully lascivious for a hunk of metal. While on a recent R&R my brother Steve decided to distinguish himself from the rest of humanity by way of a tattoo of this boozing icon on his left forearm. Ironically enough, Steve was relatively sober when he walked into the tattoo parlor, but with the help of a friend, a nearby bar and a ginormous Big Gulp cup he was pretty numb by the time the needling was over. To this day my brother has never admitted to having an ounce of regret over the animated robot now forever etched into his flesh. Lucky for him, I don’t think the Army would fire someone for being a too gung-ho about a cartoon. MTW

JANIS JOPLIN “I think I think too much. That’s why I drink.” Amen, Janis. Amen. Ever since the dawn of my adolescence and despite the fact that it occurred three decades after her ’60s heyday, Joplin was at once a hero and a cautionary tale. She seemed to barely comprehend, let alone follow, convention and pursued an existence in which her innate weirdness was her badge. And it worked. At the same time the insecurity that can accompany weirdness seemed to incline her toward an extremely self-destructive and heartbreak-ridden path. She owned her blues. Grace Slick once said that talking to Joplin was like talking to a wise old crone; she seemed to carry the weight of someone who had been through it all. Joplin, whose signature accessory was a bottle of Southern Comfort, inspired a number of songs, including Leonard Cohen’s “Chelsea Hotel #2” (in which he recalls her telling him she “preferred handsome men”), and the Grateful Dead tune “Bird Song.” While it did play a role, it was not ultimately the sauce that did her in. Her 1970 death was officially attributed to a heroin overdose.

It’s like a John Wayne movie on acid. But way less scary. must work with an Aussie cowboy, known as the Drover (Hugh Jackman), to keep her business from being overtaken by corrupt rivals. In a later scene, when the two leads start to inevitably fall in love with one another, the camera frames them in a way that grandly suggests we’re watching Gone With the Wind, only with kangaroos. This isn’t a subtle film, but that’s not what you should expect from Luhrmann, whose past works—Strictly Ballroom, Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge!—are wild infusions of pop culture and in-your-face filmmaking. If John Ford were Australian and smoked a lot of peyote, he would have made a film like this one: a huge, audacious, messy and sometimes brilliant Aussie western. Kidman (older but still gorgeous and captivating) and Jackman (commanding as ever) give charismafueled, full-blown movie star per-

boy (it’s a charming scene), the movie started growing on me. The lavish set pieces that mark the film’s sprawling second act (involving a huge cattle run) are downright awesome. The film unashamedly embraces Hollywood movie conventions while at the same time staying true to Luhrmann’s quirky vision and Aussie roots. If you combine an offbeat director with a massive production involving a history lesson, Hollywood throwbacks, unabashed romanticism, WWII melodrama, aborigine mysticism, musical interludes and the kitchen sink, this is what you get. Yes, it is flawed, but the only scene that really doesn’t work is the familiar climactic showdown (it’s too Hollywood, even for this movie). Overall, this is the kind of film you walk out of saying, “they don’t make ‘em like this anymore.” And forget waiting for DVD—a movie this impressive and entertaining needs to be seen on the big screen.

Lovely mele Saturday (Dec. 6), 7:30pm, McCoy Studio Theater, MACC

Mandatory beach day Saturday (Dec. 6), 7am-6pm, Baldwin Beach, Paia You’ve spent a significant portion of your short life getting battered by the surf. Your legs have some pretty admirable scars from run-ins with coral. You have swallowed enough salt water to make you see Jesus in your bowl of saimin. Why not make all this abuse pay off? Saturday’s 12th Annual Paia Bay Beach Fest, sponsored by the Paia Youth and Cultural Center, serves as an opportunity for you to do just that. It starts at the butt crack of dawn and features body board, surf and body surfing contests in Menuhune, Junior, Men’s Open, Drop Knee Open, Women’s Open and Freestyle Surf Open divisions. The entry fee covers you for competition in one division, a neat-o t-shirt commemorating the event and a plate lunch. The entry fee the day of the event is $30 and $20 for those who sign up ahead of time. Call 579-8354 to enter or for more info.


The first time I saw singer/kumu hula/kahiko dancer Napua Greig was when she played Hula Shores, Hotel Molokai’s waterfront bar, in celebration of her 2007 debut release Pihana (to be complete, fulfilled). The disc, for which she won the 2008 Na Hoku Hanohano Award for best female vocalist, contains one geneology chant, five traditional mele and five original mele. A sizable chunk of Molokai’s population came out to see her, and rightfully so. Hers vocals are at once sweet and strong, wandering seamlessly from birdlike harmonies to commanding goddess-like leads. She blends newer approaches to songwriting with those of traditional Hawaiian music and pulls it off like a breeze. The Makawao-based songstress shares the stage with singer Hoku Zuttermeister, whose astonishing vocal range and haunting falsetto have fetched him five Na Hoku Hanohano Awards, including one for his latest release, Aina Kupuna. Zuttermeister, like Greig, embraces both traditional and modern sounds. Both heavily infuse their music with a deep reverence for ancestors as well as the ‘aina. Zuttermeister, for example inherited the song “Na Pua Lei Ilima” from his great-grandmother. This is one of those required-listening shows. For tickets call 242SHOW (7469) or visit $30/keiki half price.

The real deal Sunday (Dec. 7), 3pm, McCoy Studio Theater, MACC I could go on and on about how the white man has attempted to give Barbie doll simplicity to things too ancient and profound for the steel hierarchy of his mind to grasp. But that’s been done ad nauseum, usually by me, so I’ll be positive this time around. Hula (the real hula), though often portrayed as twodimensional for purposes of marketing, appears to have survived to some degree despite the abovementioned stabs at hegemony. In fact, Maui County has designated 2008 Year of the Hula. The MACC is commemorating this occasion with a two-part film series focusing on various aspects of this vital tradition. Sunday’s screenings serve as the second and final installment. Two films will show. The first, Ka Po’e Hula Hawaii Kahiko (The Hula People of Old), features footage of hulas that took place in the 1930s as performed by some of the most well known dancers and chanters of the era. The second, The Hula of Old Hawaii, features demonstrations of traditional dances and chants as performed by Mary Kawena Pukui and daughters Pat and Pele. A guest speaker will provide additional insight. Take that, dashboard dolls! For tickets call 242-SHOW(7469) or visit $12.



Put on some trance Sunday (Dec. 7), 7pm, Studio Maui, Haiku Kirtan (Indian devotional chant) rock star Krishna Das’s new release, Heart Full of Soul, has little in common with the Yardbirds tune with which it shares its title. Yet it wouldn’t surprise me if a number of music collections contain both. Both acts are essentially products of the ’60s. Both have a rare degree of emotional gravity. Yet the former probably appeals more to the yoga set than it does to rock and roll history buffs (the Yardbirds did, after all, launch the careers of Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck). I am told that in the realm of Kirtan, Das parallels all three of these legendary acts in popularity and impact. Sunday’s show is the show fans of the genre cannot miss. Krishna Das’s tunes are more accessible to Western audiences than those of others of his ilk; his melodies are highly catchy. Das incorporates a diverse array of Eastern and Western instruments into his sound on Heart Full of Soul: acoustic and electric guitar, violin, finger cymbals, harmonium and the tabla drum, the striking of which causes the listener to instantly associate this music with its nation of origin. This rare show is one of three stops in Das’s Hawaiian Islands tour. Call 575-9390 for tickets. $30/$25.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) If the tool you had at hand was a thick black marker, the kind of picture you’d draw on a post-it would be incredibly different from the one you’d draw on a wall-sized mural. Similarly, if you had to fill out that wall mural with a fine-tipped watercolor paintbrush, you’d lose interest or run out of time way before it was done. This week, make sure your “canvas” is the appropriate size for the point you want to make, and that the tools you use are the right ones for the job. It’d be far too easy to choose incorrectly on both counts if you’re not careful.

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) Wealth is all relative. All but the poorest of poor Americans are still pretty well off compared to the poor of more impoverished nations. Most Americans have multiple changes of clothes, shoes, transportation, a telephone, television, and access to affordable fresh food, clean water, and resources like the Internet, for example. Perspective is very important here. Stop feeling sorry for yourself, please. As bad off as things are, they could always be much, much worse. Keep that in mind this week. You’re incredibly lucky, and blessed. Isn’t it time you let yourself feel that way?

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) Recall a situation when you had to meet and get to know a large number of people all at once—first day at school or a new job, for example—and remember how there were people who stood out at once, and some you had trouble telling apart at first. Those two generically pretty blonde girls, for example. Later you’d learn that one is brash, slutty and hilarious, the other a boring prude, but on that first day you couldn’t for the life of you remember which was which. There are always people who have trouble standing out. If you are one of them, Aquarius, you are not doing your job.

PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) Because you’re so socially weird, you sometimes have trouble discerning what is or isn’t appropriate behavior. This has not only allowed some serious kooks some prime real estate in your life, it’s also caused you to make some hilariously dramatic gaffes that have earned you a kind of notoriety in your circle. While being the eccentric amongst your friends is a fun role to play, it can sometimes erode your credibility with certain acquaintances. You may have to tone it down this week, and you may need help doing it. When playing your most normal self, make sure you have an able partner-in-crime. Enlist one, pronto.

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) If you were an exiled prince(ss) whose parents’ throne had been stolen by evil usurpers, stranded in a strange land with no money, no allies, few friends, and no other assets besides your royal blood, what would you do? Would you give up quietly, marry a local, and lead a peaceful, unthreatening existence? Or would you make a play for the crown, even if it seemed doomed to failure? Although the stakes are nowhere near so high, that is something like the choice you may have to make this week. I can’t tell you which is the way to go—only that you should never give up on anything until you’ve tried it; either the quiet life or the burdens of tremendous responsibility may yet be yours, if you choose.

TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) You are fond of your habits and rituals, aren’t you? Doing things a certain way every day certainly adds to your stability and wellbeing—most of the time. Sometimes, however, it can certainly start looking an awful lot like a rut. I’m not sure how much new stuff you really want coming into your life; no point in introducing a lot of novelty or many fresh new faces if you’re just not in the mood. However, even creatures of habit such as you require a little variety and innovation. Make a token effort in the next few weeks to ensure you’ve got at least that much.

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Yes, I suppose burning down the house and trying to collect the insurance money is one possible solution to getting out of debt, but it’s not the best one. The antidote to what ails you is probably a lot more complex and tedious than that, but it’s also far more likely to work. The scheme you’ve been contemplating is not only highly likely to fail, epically, but it’s got the added bonus of making your life even more miserable and screwed up than before. Take the long, sure route to where you need to go. Believe me, however lame, boring, and annoying that path is, it’s still far superior to any supposed shortcuts you think are available.

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Just take things as they happen. You have much less than your usual ability to influence events right now, so the control freak in you really needs to take a vacation. Trying to direct the action at the moment will just lead to frustration and misery for all concerned, because this stuff does not need a director, least of all you. Get all Zen about it if you can. Just allow things to unfold as they naturally want to, and enjoy them to the best of your ability. You can go back to making sure everything happens just the way you like it soon enough, but for now try to like it just the way it happens, instead.

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) Embrace the unpleasant. Since you’re stuck with the less savory aspects of your existence in any case, go ahead and celebrate them as best you can. They’ll develop your character, especially if you learn to deal with them with grace and dignity. The good news is, the more beauty and serenity you can inject into these situations, the less unpleasant they’ll be. What was forced at first may become natural soon enough. And it’s like a positive feedback circle. The happier you are with things as they are, the more things you will discover to be happy about. In other words, this kind of thing just gets easier and easier, and better and better.

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) You need a tutor, mentor, and guardian angel, rolled into one, who’ll help you navigate the wild, unexplored territory you’re venturing into. Unfortunately, there are none available. You may simply have to make one up. Imaginary friends can be very useful, as long as you don’t take them too seriously. Your own judgment may not be as reliable as usual, so you will have to simulate someone else’s. I don’t care if you ask what Jesus, Brian Boitano, or Wonder Woman would do. Choose someone you can vividly imagine, then heed what they say. It’ll serve you well.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) When a hapless insect lands in a spider web, the more it struggles, the more entangled and doomed it becomes. It’s kind of twisted, because of course not trying to free itself is also certain destruction. Only rarely does a bug escape that kind of effective trap. Luckily, you have two things going for you: First, you are more intelligent and rational than an insect. Second, despite the fact that it closely resembles one, this snare is nowhere near as efficient and foolproof as a spider web. Although it’s true that the more you mindlessly flail the worse off you’ll be, a little careful, methodical effort on your part should have you flying free in no time.




DECEMBER 04, 2008

Most of your preparations for the supposedly inevitable outcome have been pointless. It should be obvious by now that what you thought would happen isn’t going to. Instead, you’ll be thrust into a totally unexpected situation, for which your careful plans will be utterly useless. Time to improvise! Luckily, you’re very good at that, provided you don’t fixate on all that fruitless work you did. It’s time to let that go, completely, or you won’t be able to think on your feet. And if you’re not able to think on your feet right now, you may as well lay down and cover your face and wait for people to just walk all over you.
