A bunch of people go off on Patricia Bragg in Letters. A chick gets taken advantage because she’s a chick in Eh Brah! Jared Libby gets the scoop on why Laura Kaplan went to jail for speeding. A&B can’t contain the good news in Maui 10. What’s this? Rob Report met with Malaysian palm oil executives? Shocking! You know, where dancing is concerned, the LC always seems to win, as LC Watch points out. Pignataro rants about sugar, Evel Knievel and celebrity attorney Jim Krueger in Coconut Wireless, though not necessarily in that order. News of the Weird explains why we’re doomed.

Cole Smithey says the new fantasy flick Golden Compass, which is supposed to be some subversive atheistic piece of propaganda, is merely dull.

14 FEATURE STORY For many Native Hawaiians, there is no more sacred duty than the protection of bones–the iwi kapuna. So how come the State Historic Preservation Division apparently has so little staff, resources and leadership that they’ve been allegedly storing bones in closets? Greg Mebel goes digging for the truth.

LETTERSTOTHEEDITOR SOMETHING TO BRAGG ABOUT (Editor’s note: the following letters are in response to Nov. 22, 2007 edition of Rob Report titled “Ag Lands and the ‘M’ Word.”) It is unfortunate that our litigious society makes the truth difficult to uncover. Thank you for noticing Patricia Braggs’ continued greed and disregard for Maui in particular and people in general. I have met this woman and did not like her immediately as she seemed very aloof and separate from the world around her while simultaneously pretending to actually care. I hope that you will devote more energy to disclosing her improper behavior so that the world knows just who she really is and her true intentions, which are obviously meant for self-gain. -Ray Peters, via email I hope you will continue articles like this in Rob Report. -John McCauley, via email I am writing to express my disappointment with Patricia Bragg’s attempt to develop Waiehu farmland after she promised a number of people she would never “sell out.” Many of my friends and I are boycotting her products. It is a pity since we are devotees of Paul Bragg and what he stands for. What happened to Patricia’s integrity for the natural way? Looks like fear and greed again. -Roy Genatt, via email I’m really upset about what’s happening with the land in Waiehu. [I’d] like to tell that lady Patricia Bragg to go home and stop trying to make money out of our Aina. -Leilani J, via email I was one of the people who walked the land with Patricia Bragg when she was looking at buying this pristine land that is now up for subdivision. At the time, my ears heard, “I will farm this land and make it beautiful and productive for all. We will grow food, like I do on my 40 acres in Byron Bay, and give back to Mother Earth in this way, because I can!” Well, do the latest actions of Ms. Bragg align with these words? No! I, for one, am tired of hearing one thing from someone, then seeing another thing happen that rapes our Earth, all in the name of the almighty dollar! It’s time for us in the state of Hawai‘i to wake up to the usage of our resources and how we plan for future generations. Do we really want to rely on containers of food from the mainland, when we could grow our own? We can

be a model of sustainablility for the rest of the nation. Join a group who cares and is doing something like Maui Tomorrow or Maui Coastal Land Trust. I have been using Bragg products as a health coach and nutritionist for years. I will no longer buy them until I hear that the subdivision plans have been rescinded and I see something moving forward more in alignment with what Ms. Bragg initially said and the land is being treated well. You may print this. I’m also going to be sending it along to Ms. Bragg herself, who I understand, wasn’t Paul Bragg’s daughter after all. Seems she is a big sham and no better than most of the folks running for office right now. What we see is not what we’re getting! Why is that? -Laurel White, Paia Rob Report is always a great addition to your paper but this week’s was the best. All I needed to read was the headline and look at his great photograph and I had the whole story. -Robie Price, Haiku The Rob Report about our irreplaceable farmland being lost to developers was sickening. Isn’t this like sawing off the branch your sitting on? The news about health guru Patricia Bragg exploiting land for monetary gain was really shocking. Most of us that are health conscious buy Bragg products so with all those sales she obviously does not really need the money. I am going to boycott her products as a way to send a message that we won’t tolerate such hypocrisy and I urge everyone else to do likewise. Maybe then Bragg will re-think her attempt to try to make money off of land she promised to protect. I am not going to put my money behind the raping of yet another pristine area of Maui. We need to stop this insanity before it is too late. -Sam Johnson, Kahului

I bought one of your old tour bikes, and I admit the deal sounded too good to be true. Your salesman said the “titanium” frame alone was worth the $1,500 asking price. Yeah, right: I haven’t even had one decent ride on the bike. When I brought it back you guys told me tough luck. So I took it to another shop—one with a good reputation for repair work—and they told me that it needed at least $700 in work to make it right: new wheels, chain rings, etc. Look, here’s what happened: I’m a woman and you took advantage of me. Now I’m out my hard earned savings for my dream bike. You’re relatively new to the island, but you’ll find out that word travels fast.

One Maui resident feels the sting of the state’s tough new criminal speeding law Every so often we all find ourselves driving a little too fast. Perhaps we’re in a bit of a hurry, late for an appointment, or passing a shiny new Chrysler Sebring on the Pi‘ilani carrying occupants more concerned with the scenery than the cars around them. Laura Kaplan, a 42-year-old massage therapist from Kihei, was in just one of those situations last May when she was nabbed by a Maui Police speed trap. Clocked at traveling 77 mph between North Kihei Road and Ma‘alaea, Kaplan thought she was in for a citation and perhaps a stiff fine. But because she was going more than 30 mph over the posted limit, she actually faced much worse. Last year the state pushed through a tough new speeding law aimed at curbing traffic fatalities. When Kaplan showed up for court the following month, she had no idea what she was in for. “Only when I spoke to the public

defender did the enormity of this ticket hit me like a ton of bricks,” she said. “I realized I was in a different ballgame. I was not in traffic court, I was in criminal court.” Kaplan stood before Judge Sydney Pollak. She sentenced her to two days in jail. Citing prior speed infractions—one in 2004 and another in 1995—Pollak didn’t offer Kaplan community service, an option available to those with no priors. “This is a freaking nightmare and no one I speak to has even heard of this law,” Kaplan said. According to Hawai‘i Statute 291C-105, a first offender caught going 30 miles per hour over the posted limit or 80 mph anywhere will be subject to the following: • A fine of between $500 and $1,000; • 30-day suspension of a driver’s license; • A driver retraining course; • A surcharge of $25 to be deposited into a neurotrauma special fund. Oh, and either 36 hours of community service or two to five days of imprisonment.

Lt. Bobbie Hill, director of Maui PD’s traffic division, said the tougher penalties are in response to a rash of speed related fatalities across the state over the past year. “From this Mother’s Day [a month before he took over the traffic division] till now we’re averaging one fatality a week,” Hill said. “It’s a matter of thinking about what you’re doing, there’s no real need to go that fast. These laws actually have teeth now. People need to realize, you can go to jail.” Kaplan served her jail sentence last month and found it less than accommodating. “I was forced to spend 48 hours in a prison lock-up with long-term inmates, made to sleep on a concrete floor in a cell with two other women who lived there,” she said. “Locked away 19 hours a day and made to pick bugs out of my food. How is this supposed to make me stop speeding?” Kaplan said her troubles are just beginning. She was assessed a $600 fine and lost

her license for a month—no small penalty for someone who drives all over the island for work. She must also now file an SR-22 form with her insurance company, which will undoubtedly raise her premiums. “In the end, after all that has happened to me, I wish I could tell the world I’ve learned my lesson: I no longer speed,” she said. “But I can’t. I am an assertive, safe driver. I get to where I am going and pay attention, but you know, I still speed. Maybe I won’t go over 30 consciously, but yup, I speed. Everyone else does, too.” MTW

RELIABLE RISE It’s not even close to the largest A&B subsidiary, but Matson Navigation still plays a considerable role in Hawai`i’s survival. Sure, there are other shippers, but there’s no question that the state relies heavily on Matson to get stuff here from, well, the rest of the world. Hence a company decision to raise shipping rates early next year makes all the major papers statewide. Starting Jan. 6, 2008, all container rates will rise about 2.5 percent, according to a Nov. 30 story in the Honolulu Advertiser. Company execs told the paper the rate hikes are necessary to “ensure Hawai`i will be served with modern, reliable service for decades to come.” Since “modern, reliable service” will always cost a little bit more each year—and Hawai`i isn’t likely to get closer to any major land mass—Matson would seem to have a really good long-term deal going.

Palm Reading

Case Dismissed

Why Malaysian representatives are meeting with Hawaiian Electric, state officials and others Over the past year or so, critical discussions have taken place worldwide on how biofuels may help wean our dependence on fossil fuels and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. But scientific evidence and scholarly dissertations are increasingly indicating that the widespread speculative rush towards crops for ethanol and biodiesel production is nothing more than a rush to fool’s gold. Last week, representatives of the Malaysian Palm Oil Board (MPOB) met in Honolulu with officials from Hawaiian Electric Company (HECO), the state Department of Business, Economic Development, and Tourism (DBEDT) and various environmental groups. Concurrently, the Malaysian ambassador sat down with Governor Linda Lingle, who also traveled to neighboring Indonesia earlier this year to establish a joint military and disaster preparedness pact. Fruit of the African oil palm tree yields the highest amount per acre of vegetable oil—used in thousands of food, cosmetic products and, more recently, for converting to biodiesel. Malaysia and Indonesia are the top two palm oil producers on the world, which has hit record prices in recent months, mirroring crude oil’s steady climb towards $100 per barrel. In 2006, Malaysia’s revenue from palm oil exports topped $31 billion. But palm oil production has exacted a devastating toll on clearing equatorial virgin rainforests, threatening habitat of endangered species such as the orangutan, displacing indigenous peoples and actually increasing carbon emissions because of slash and burn deforestation and the draining of carbon-rich peat bogs. Friends of the Earth estimates that new palm oil plantations caused 87 percent of the deforestation in Malaysia from 1985 to 2000. In Indonesia, the amount of land devoted to palm oil has increased 118 percent in the last eight years. In the Apr. 1 Associated Press story “Scientists Weigh Downside of Palm Oil,” a climate scientist with Wetlands International calculated that the amount of emissions from drained peat bogs and fires lit to clear forests for plantations account for eight percent of the world’s total carbon emissions. His conclusion: “As a biofuel,

The LC wins again! In slightly less than one hour, Judge Joseph E. Cardoza dismissed the appeal by Maui Community College student Ramoda Anand and the Maui Dance Advocates of the Maui County Liquor Commission’s April 2006 decision not to change the county’s rules regarding dancing.

it’s a failure.” So, how is it that Hawaiian Electric didn’t get the memo, and is forging ahead with plans to run generators on Oahu and Maui burning biodiesel refined from Southeast Asian palm oil? Probably because it’s one of the cheapest alternatives to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, as required by Act 234 of the state Legislature. But it’s a choice that has essentially been made behind closed doors, far from public input which would likely have rallied for local, sustainable choices for renewable energy—not one linked with an “eco-nightmare.” Back in February, Maui Electric Company (MECO) officials announced a project with a new company, BlueEarth Biodiesel, LLC, to build a huge 120-million-gallon-per year refinery at their Maui Waena site on Pulehu Road. The news surprised many, who raised questions about its size, scope, fuel “feedstock” source and how a company with no track record could have been hand picked without following state procurement laws. Maui’s homegrown company, Pacific Biodiesel, was left out on the street with no opportunity to bid. As members of the Sustainable Biodiesel Alliance, they questioned the likelihood that local production of biofuel crops could ever come near the capacity of supplying BlueEarth, as well as another large refinery planned for Oahu. Imperium Renewables just opened the largest biodiesel facility in the U.S. at Grays Harbor, Washington. It’s capable of producing 100 million gallons yearly. They are planning a refinery equal in size, to be constructed on state land at Kalaeloa, Barber’s Point Harbor. Two weeks ago, the state Board of Land and Natural Resources approved Imperium’s 30-year lease on their harbor land, over objections by Life of the Land, Sierra Club-Maui, Maui Tomorrow and lawyers from U.S. Biodiesel, who stated that state law requires such a lease be put up for public auction. To supply both refineries, Imperium intends to import Malaysian palm oil, according to documents filed as part of their overall permitting. Imperium representatives just returned from Kuala Lumpur, where they attended, along with


LC Watch

a HECO representative, the Fifth Roundtable meeting on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). The RSPO is an international group that’s attempting to address production and procurement standards for the industry. Not long ago I got a call that there was an opportunity to meet with Malaysian representatives in Honolulu, and made my flight reservations. An invitation had been extended to Sierra Club Director Jeff Mikulina (who declined) and Mark Fox, who manages external affairs for The Nature Conservancy-Hawai‘i. Both Mikulina and Fox are members of the recently formed state Green House Gas Emissions Reduction Task Force. McNeil-Wilson Communications arranged the meeting on behalf of Imperium Renewables. McNeil-Wilson is the same Honolulu public relations firm hired by Hawai‘i Superferry. I entered the downstairs conference room of The Nature Conservancy’s office in Chinatown. I was greeted by Fox, Thiaga “Tiger” Thiagarajan of the MPOB’s American Regional Office in Washington D.C. and M. Salleh Kassim, Executive Director of the American Palm Oil Council. Joining the discussion were Henry Curtis and Kat Brady from Life of the Land, and Dr. Stephanie Fried, senior scientist with Environmental Defense-Hawai‘i. After introductions, our Asian guests explained that they were in Hawai‘i to promote palm oil, and had met with see PALM, page 13

After listening to 40 minutes worth of arguments from Maui Dance Advocates attorney Lance Collins and Deputy Corporation Counsel Jane Lovell (representing the LC), Cardoza sided with Lovell’s argument that he had no jurisdiction to hear the case since the Liquor Commission’s hearing on dance rules wasn’t a “contested case.” There was no basis for an appeal, Cardoza said, and that was that. So much for the legality of the matter. In practical terms, those who want to liberalize the LC’s ambiguous rules on dancing—enforced at the discretion of individual LC investigators (which could potentially violate a person’s right to due process, an attorney standing in the back of the courtroom whispered during the case)—have little recourse. It’s clear the Liquor Commission will not alter their rules on dancing. They’ve made that perfectly clear. They don’t consider dancing to be, as Collins put it to Cardoza, “a form of expression that is protected by the First Amendment [to the U.S. Constitution].” They see it as mere “recreation,” as Lovell explained, subject to restrictions they’ve already deemed “reasonable.” Now it’s still possible to get the dancing rules changed. One way would happen if an establishment licensed to sell alcohol in the County of Maui gets hit with a violation for allowing illegal dancing, and then challenges the rule. But another, perhaps easier—and more likely—recourse would be for a patron to just start dancing at an establishment. When asked to stop, the patron would then sue the County of Maui, alleging that the LC’s rules violated his or her civil rights. Any volunteers?

MAUICOUNTY she couldn’t even read a simple tax return. Surprising and even a bit jarring, sure, when compared to the studied politeness that characterized the rest of the day’s attorneys, but what surprised me most of all was that Judge Cardoza didn’t even flinch when Krueger started lobbing personal insults.


WEDNESDAY, Nov. 28 Got to see one of Maui’s more famous trial attorneys in action this morning. James “Jim” Krueger was first on the docket in Judge Joseph Cardoza’s courtroom. Now I’ve long read about Krueger’s celebrated cases in the papers. In 2003 he represented the family of a guy who died after falling off a 300-foot cliff in Huelo in a lawsuit against the vacation rental where the guy was staying. In 2005, Krueger sued the Hyatt Regency Maui for negligence on behalf of the family of Lauren Crossan, the 18-yearold cheerleader who died after getting drunk and falling out of a ninth-story room. A year later, Krueger sued the county after a guy died in the Lahaina Aquatic Center. And just this year, Krueger filed suit in a wrongful death case on behalf of the families of two girls who apparently drowned in Tubes in Haiku. Clearly, this is not an attorney who shies away from publicity, controversy or even personal insults. And believe me, he didn’t disappoint this morning—at one point in court, Krueger referred to his legal adversary as an “economic idiot,” alleging that

it’s finally happened: the state Department of Education has finally declared war on candy.

NEWSOFTHEWEIRD WE’RE DOOMED Pentagon investigators discovered in August that a small South Carolina company fraudulently collected $20.5 million in shipping costs, including one invoice of $999,798 for sending two washers (cost: 19 cents each) to a base in Texas. According to Bloomberg News, the Defense Department was said to have a policy of automatically and unquestioningly paying shipping bills labeled “priority.”

GOVERNMENT IN ACTION! About 30 Iowa school districts had their funding applications for preschool grants tossed out in September, the state Department of Education said, because the paperwork was not double-spaced, as required.



Jane Balogh, 66, was informed in September that she will not be prosecuted for defrauding elections officials in Seattle, despite having illegally registered her dog, Duncan M. MacDonald, to vote. Balogh, protesting how easy officials have made it for people to vote illegally, put her home phone account in Duncan’s name, which is all the proof required for registration, then signed him up, and when an absentee ballot arrived, she went public about her scheme. But despite the public confession, Duncan continued to be sent official absentee ballots for the two subsequent election cycles.

any impact at all, we will do it.” The police also installed signs at gas stations: “All Fuel Must Be Paid For.”

PEOPLE WITH TOO MUCH MONEY The adolescent offspring of some well-to-do parents are serious art collectors, according to a September Wall Street Journal report, and their interest appears not to be motivated solely by parents’ strategies to shield income from the tax collector. Ms. Dakota King, nine, for example, owns 40 pieces and specializes in animals and “happy colors.” Ms. Shammiel FleischerAmoros, 10, who admitted, “I’m really scared, but Daddy told me I have to negotiate,” succeeded in getting $200 knocked off of a $3,200 sculpture she really wanted. An 11-year-old last year “waved a paddle” to win a $352,000 Jeff Koons sculpture.

OBSESSIONS Just when Internet newspaper sites appear to be gaining ground as replacements for printed editions, a 70-year-old woman identified only as Maggie told the Edmonton (Alberta) Sun in September that her paper edition of the Sun is a crucial part of her daily diet, literally. She eats it, in strips, and has, she said, for the past seven years because it tastes good. “I can’t explain it,” she said, and it was only when she recently experienced a blockage of her esophagus, and doctors found a ball of paper, that she revealed her obsession. Doctors cited by the Sun said that except for the blockage danger, newspaper eating is not unhealthful.



In September, police in Hertfordshire, England, stood fast under criticism for their program of placing posters around the area reading, “Don’t Commit Crime.” Said a police spokeswoman, “If stating the obvious helps to reduce crime or has

“For the squads of Philippine lawyers preparing cases on three continents, stripping away the financial camouflage that disguises the [Ferdinand] Marcos empire is just one part of what international law scholars agree will be an extraordinarily complicated legal battle… The Central Bank of the Philippines has sued to recover the crates of gold and $1.5 million in freshly minted pesos that Marcos took with him to Hawaii in February.” -From “The International Treasure Hunt” by Richard Lacayo, Time Magazine, April 21, 1986

ROBREPORT PALM: continued from page 8 HECO, DBEDT and Imperium. They explained their country’s history of production, and the roles of the various agencies to control and regulate palm oil production and trade. Both also noted that they recently spent time in Europe. There, widespread concerns over palm oil production led to the cancellation of some plans to use it for biodiesel fuel. In the U.K., activists filed a false advertising lawsuit against MPOB claims that there is no open burning in Malaysia to clear land for palm plantations. And when we asked how much land has been cleared for palm oil plantations over the past 20 years, Kassim said there have been “zero burns.” In fact, satellite photos since 1997 have tracked forest fire hotspots, and are readily available on Internet sites. At times, photos have recorded thousands of fires burning in Indonesia and Malaysia, resulting in a choking haze covering the entire region. We asked about expansion plans, given the increasing demand for palm oil, especially from China and India. They said most expansion has taken place on former rubber plantations, not by clearing virgin forests. There are “some” plans to expand in Sarawak, the Malaysian portion on the north side of the island of Borneo, “but not so fast because the soil is not so good.” But a book just issued by the Forest Peoples Programme and Sawit (Malay for oil palm) Watch called Land is Life: Land rights and oil palm development in Sarawak says Malaysian production is in rapid expansion, with exports projected for as much as $35 billion. The Malaysian government is encouraging private sector expansion on “Native Customary Lands” to double production to one million hectares over the next three years. A hectare is equivalent to roughly 2.5 acres. Asked if there were any problems relating to indigenous people, Tiger said there were “no problems at all.” Yet Land is Life reports more than 40 cases in Sarawak courts relating to palm oil expansion disputes over native customary rights to land. “Our lands and properties are taken behind our backs and issued to others,” Tua Rumah, an Iban Village Chief said. “This is sheer robbery.” Alang Ju, Penang Village Chief of Long Singu, added that, “The development of plantations in this area will definitely result in the destruction and loss of the resources on our lands which we depend on for our survival.


Our people were born here, brought up and nurtured in this area, and we want to continue to live on this land and surrounding forests.” Wildlife and Rainforest action groups worldwide have also decried the impact of palm oil on remaining habitat for endangered species such as the orangutan, Javan rhinoceros, Sumatran tiger and many others. Rainforest Action Network and Greenpeace are among several organizations with active campaigns against palm oil production. Wailuku attorney Lance Collins just returned from visiting family in the Philippines. He said that in that country, the issue is framed as food vs. fuel. “The effects of taking cropland out of food production for electricity generating

are simple: widespread starvation and irreparable pollution,” Collins said. “It is simply immoral to use food for fuel in a world plagued by hunger and starvation.” Sierra Club Maui Chair Lance Holter echoed the long list of transgressions connected with palm oil production. “Why is HECO still banking on importing foreign oil to run their diesel fuel-oil electric generators when there are all kinds of proven sustainable alternatives?” Holter asked. “Their insistence upon using this source is contrary to the basic premise of good business and violates public trust and the environment as well.” As a Fulbright scholar doing doctorate research, Dr. Fried of Environmental Defense-Hawai‘i spent two years in Kalimantan, Borneo and another three years in Indonesia. During our meeting,

she broke into fluent Malay at one point, surprising our guests. She was also close to Paramount Chief Pak Digit, whom she said was the patriarch of her hana‘i family while she was there. Chief Dingit fought valiantly to protect indigenous rights and forests. Coincidentally, our meeting took place on the second anniversary of his death. At the ceremony, a statement was read about the chief’s global influence, and the village also heard about the campaign in Hawai‘i to oppose palm oil importation. Here in Hawai‘i, with our own fights for the environment against encroaching development and for indigenous lands and rights, I’d call that totally chicken skin. MTW

here’s a raging debate surfacing all over the state. And it bores down to the marrow of what Hawai‘i is and where it’s going. Iwi Kapuna means bones of the ancestors, and they’re showing up all over the island. Hundreds are being stored right now in boxes in Wailuku. “For Hawaiians, the iwi also contain the essence of the person,” Charles Kauluwehi Maxwell Sr., the chairman of the Maui/Lanai Islands Burial Council, said. “This is unlike prevailing Western thought where the spirit of a person leaves the body when someone dies.” This plays a central role in Hawai‘i politics. There are bones of Hawaiian ancestors buried all over the islands. And before anyone may build something new, or disturb the land in any way, they must check for significant archeological or cultural features. The mere presence of bones can be enough to stop a project. In the last year or so, the presence of Hawaiian cultural artifacts and bones are sparking these debates over Makena; Turtle Bay, the Whole Foods and Wal-Mart on Oahu; Kaloko Heights and Hokulia on the Big Island and La‘au Point on Molokai.


DECEMBER 6, 2007

It was in this environment that on Nov. 7 David Brown, a former Branch Chief Archaeologist of the State Historic Preservation Division (SHPD)—part of the state Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR)—filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court. His suit alleges that SHPD violated his civil rights and includes allegations that “numerous practices at SHPD were illegal, unethical, or culturally insensitive.” In the suit, Brown names a dizzying cast of characters, including but not limited to the following: former Administrator Melanie Chinen; Laura Thielen and Peter Young, the current and former heads of the Department of Land and Natural Resources, respectively; Bob Awana, the embattled former chief of staff for Governor Linda Lingle; and even Melanie Chinen’s daughter. Brown’s claims include the following: • “[R]ecords and [the] library at SHPD are not kept up to date.” • “Bones that are found inadvertently are often exhumed.” • “Not all bones exhumed by agents of SHPD are reinterred.” • “Bones under custody of SHPD are not stored according to museum curatorial standards.”


The last point is one of Brown’s most sensational. In fact, his lawsuit alleges that bones discovered on Maui “are kept in a closet.” The situation is apparently even worse on other islands. On Kauai, according to Brown’s suit, bones “are kept outside in a metal container that in [sic] not sealed and exposed to the elements.” Most incredibly, Brown’s suit alleges that, “on the Big Island [bones] were kept in a bathroom closet with bathroom supplies such as plungers, toilet cleansers, and extra toilet paper.” DLNR spokeswoman Deborah Ward did not return repeated calls requesting comment for this story. Officials at the SHPD office on Maui, the Big Island and the Big Island Burial Council also refused to comment. Citing the physical toll and emotional strain stemming from job-related controversy and litigation, SHPD Administrator Melanie Chinen—named in Brown’s lawsuit as one of those official Brown alleges is responsible for SHPD’s problems—will resign her office, effective Dec. 7. She spent three years in the position.


ore than 30 years ago a skull was taken from the Ka‘anapali beach area during the construction of Whalers Village. In 2004 it appeared on eBay for $12,500 “buy it now” (bids were to begin at $1,000). Native Hawaiians protested and Jerry David Hasson, 57, of Huntington Beach, California was soon arrested on charges of illegally trafficking in human remains. Depending on your perspective, this was the theft of an archaeological treasure—indeed, someone’s ancestor. Or it was like bringing home a shell found on the seashore. But this isn’t really an open debate. It’s a question of beliefs and culture. And you’ll be hard pressed to find someone to say publicly that there are bones buried everywhere in Hawai‘i; that they aren’t sacred and are just the natural remains of the people before us. And if they’re moved, they won’t really be disturbed. But actions speak volumes. Prior to 1988, new development was not required to do much to mitigate the effect a bulldozer has on an old Hawaiian cemetery. Construction workers dug up thousands of skeletons to make way for buildings and roads without much ado.

But in 1988, things changed. That was when the Kapalua Land Company began construction of the Ritz Carlton near Honokahua Bay. The company was diligent in consulting with a private archaeologist, the Office of Hawaiian Affairs and state officials. But when digging began, workers found the remains of about 900 Hawaiians (no exact number of how many were found). As digging continued they put the remains in a steel container. And while most all involved believed that the site was important and significant, the debate roiled on about what to do about it. Some wanted to continue to remove the remains for future study, while others wished to leave them undisturbed. Some wanted to bury them in another location and others simply wished to do nothing. Native Hawaiian groups began to demand that the site remain intact. They demanded that the iwi kapuna must not be disturbed. Eventually, after vigils and fierce protests, the state ended up paying Kapalua Land Company $6 million to rebury the bones where they found them, and redesign the resort to leave the cemetery area intact and alone. This fight led to changes in Hawai‘i’s historic preservation law. Soon the Department of Land and Natural Resources’ SHPD had a new branch dealing specifically with burials. SHPD then created island burial councils to give local people more of a say in situations like this. Or, better yet, to prevent situations like these by making decisions and coming up with clear guidelines that developers could follow before large investments of time and money were made. Or before taxpayers would have to pay for changing the rules of the game midstream. Two years later, in 1990, the U.S. Congress passed the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), which gave federal support for the protection and return of cultural items to Native American, Native Hawaiian and Native Alaskan groups.


utting those changes into practice hasn’t been easy or straightforward. Today, SHPD is the poorest DLNR division. SHPD’s Maui branch office lacks a PhD archaeologist. Since 2004, 22 of 24 SHPD officials have resigned their positions. And for various reasons, January 2008 will mark the fourth year since the Molokai Burial Council has officially met. One source on Maui familiar with land development issues said that building permits are often hung up because of SHPD. “They’re the slowest,” the source said. “If 30 days goes by, when we get other comments from the other agencies [on the permit], then we forward the paperwork to the applicant and just say ‘SHPD pending.’ Then the [applicant] has to go after them.” Melissa Kirkendall, the former Chief

Archaeologist for Maui—who is also named in Brown’s suit—recently resigned her post after seven years. In a letter to colleagues, she explained that there were more than 400 permits and reports pending review. “Given the present state of the Historic Preservation Division, we are no longer facilitating our ethical obligations,” she wrote. “The problems are really bad,” Maxwell said. “There are lots of burials, hundreds of them that are unattended because the SHPD office is understaffed.” Some of those problems apparently include bones simply lying on the ground, exposed to the elements. “There are skulls being washed out to sea during every storm from the point at Tavares near Paia,” Jeff Bartunek, a Paia resident, said. “I’ve seen ones where the teeth are sharpened to a point.” So now everyone’s paying a price. Local land developers are particularly chafing. “Basically you’re paying just to have [the land] sit there,” Matt Slepin, senior planner at Wailuku-based Chris Hart & Partners, said in the November 2007 Honolulu Magazine story “Bones of Contention.” “Particularly on Maui, where you have relatively high construction activity, developers want to secure contractors as early as possible. So you’re paying them to do nothing until you have your permits in place. All that money’s been thrown away.” Why has the system been so ineffective? Some blame a lack of direction. “I know [Governor] Linda [Lingle] really well and when it comes to SHPD she really dropped the ball,” Maxwell said. “It’s her last term. She’s just cruising.” But others say we’re suffering because Lingle awarded high-level government jobs to “pro-growth” people who lacked proper experience. This in reference to the fact that Peter Young, the former head of the DLNR, came from the real estate industry. In addition, Melanie Chinen apparently had no experience in historic preservation before Lingle tapped her to head SHPD. Most involved with land development— pro and anti-growth—on Maui agree that SHPD must hire qualified archaeologists, improve the review process and reduce the current backlog of permit applicants. In fact, at least one developer sees higher review fees as a potential solution. “Limited resources are preventing adequate staffing levels,” Everett Dowling of Dowling Co. wrote in a Dec. 1 email. “one thought is for SHPD to put in place review fees that are at high enough levels to fund SHPD staffing needs.” Outgoing SHPD Administrator Chinen agrees, saying she hopes the state approves funding to help make these things happen. In many ways, the old questions from 1988 still haunt us. What do iwi kapuna mean? Which portions of Maui’s heritage are important enough to halt development and save? And most importantly, what lengths will we go to in allowing someone to “rest in peace?” MTW

Comfortable Philly’s Blue Plate Diner can actually fight stress Philly’s Blue Plate Diner, which has been open for a little over a year, is a really cool but curious place. It sits at the makai end of the Azeka Makai Shopping Center, and is difficult to spot from the road. Those who manage to find it’s blue neon sign and decide to stop by will find a lot going on inside. Largely open to the parking lot, Philly’s nonetheless offers a few tables for outside dining. When I stopped by one recent Saturday afternoon, a talented guitar player was near the front door, playing Hawaiian tunes. The walls are covered with photos of old Hollywood—the Rat Pack, Marilyn Monroe, I Love Lucy, Betty Boop and even Andy Griffith—as well as images

commemorating old Hawai‘i travel posters. Gold records—not actual awards, just records that are gold—hang over the bar. A few surfboards, including one rigged for windsurfing, hang from the huge ceiling beams, which have been painted silver. There are also about five television sets, assorted Christmas decorations and lots of the thick, distorted glass squares you generally find in optometrists’ offices. Indeed, the place still sports some diamond plate on the walls and a few Harley Davidson stools that marked the place when it used to be Cevoli’s Motorcycle Café, though that joint closed some years ago. Philly’s also has incredibly wide counter tops, which are actually quite comforting. This last detail makes a certain sense, because Philly’s specializes in what restaurateurs and food critics call “comfort food”–bacon & eggs, meatloaf and steak–though they also offer more sophisticated fare like prawns and steamer clams. Now I’ve always hated the term “comfort food,” believing it a lazy way to say high-fat, high-sugar American food, but

that hasn’t stopped most people—including science!—from adopting the phrase. In fact, in 2003 University of California

Philly’s Blue Plate Diner Azeka Makai Shopping Center, 1280 S. Kihei Rd., 891-2596. Open 7 a.m.-9 p.m. Breakfast served all day on weekends. $

at San Francisco researchers released the results of a study of lab rats showing that “comfort food” plays a biochemical role in fighting chronic stress. “Our studies suggest that comfort food applies the brakes on a key element of chronic stress,” study co-author Norman Pecoraro, PhD., said in a Sept. 11, 2003 ScienceDaily release. “This seems to be the body’s way of telling the brain, ‘It’s ok, you can relax, you’re refueled with

high-energy food.” Of course, Pecoraro also pointed out that yoga, meditation and sex can also release chronic stress without adding pounds to your mid-section or harden your arteries, but for many people, it’s easier to just chow down. Now I wasn’t feeling particularly stressed when I went to Philly’s and opted to try what has got to be their most comfortable of comfort foods—the Chicken fried steak and eggs—but it was certainly pleasurable. “That looks so good,” the server told me as she placed a giant platter of food before me. The steak was immense—at least six inches in diameter—and thickly breaded. It was also drowning in thick gravy. Off to one side were home fried potatoes—it appeared to be a pretty skimpy portion, until I realized the steak itself was resting on potatoes. The other side of the plate contained two scrambled eggs and a biscuit. The whole thing was delicious, though I didn’t dare finish it. Had I actually swallowed every last bite, I doubt I would have had a comfortable afternoon. MTW

Mele Kalikimaka Friday (Dec. 7) 7:30 p.m. at the Historic Iao Theater, Wailuku [MUSICAL/COMEDY] I need to disclose something here. I love Christmas and angels—especially fat angels. It’s even better if these fat angels have little wings. Much to my delight, A Maui Christmas to You presented by Maui OnStage and Kealaokala Records is bringing both to the Iao Theater for one night only in a performance about a 300-plus pound angel sent to help a little girl find the true meaning of Christmas, which I’m pretty sure has a lot to do with rum cake and candy-canes, but I may be wrong. An all-star cast including Uncle Richard Ho`opi`i, Uluwehi Guerrero, Alaka`i Paleka, Kamakakehau Fernandez, Lahela Rapozo and The Future will grace the stage, plus the first 200 children get goodie bags. Since you’ll feel like a total dipstick if your kid is number 201, get there early! Santa pictures will also be available. Tickets: $20, $10. Call 242-6969 or visit [STARR BEGLEY]

Good thing we have Upcountry Maui to turn to when needing Christmas cheer. Makawao is celebrating Christmas early this year, and man is it a celebration! I’ll put it this way: Santa on a horse drawn carriage, carolers in period costumes, bagpipes, pony rides, wreath making and ukuleles. That’s not even half of the fun Christmassy stuff that will be going on so don’t be a Grinch and head Upcountry for an authentic holiday extravaganza.

Newcomer Dakota Blue Richards plays Lyra Belacqua, a 12-year-old orphan raised at Oxford college under the supervision of her uncle Lord Asriel (Daniel Craig), a scientist and explorer intent on traveling to the Arctic Circle to examine golden dust that connects mystical worlds.

DECEMBER 6, 2007



Coincidentally, a Nazi-like group called the Magisterium (a reference to the Roman Catholic teaching authority) has been kidnapping children and spiriting them off to a compound in the Arctic to separate the youth from their daemons (souls) which manifest as alter ego pets that can change species, at least until the child’s personality becomes fixed. Lyra is inexplicably and secretly given the last Golden Compass (also called an Alethiometer), a device that ascertains the underlying truth to any question asked of it. With no idea of how to use the compass, Lyra is an easy mark for the slinky and cunning Mrs. Coulter (Nicole Kidman), who makes off with

the rebellious girl and her furry daemon (voiced by Freddie Highmore) to steal the compass for the Magisterium’s use. Unmotivated chase scenes and erratically violent fight sequences punctuate the story’s time warp setting that seems to fall somewhere between World Wars I and II. When Lyra escapes Mrs. Coulter’s diabolical clutches, she befriends a group of gypsies called “gyptians.” The name causes confusion and consternation whenever it’s used. Serafina (Eva Green) is a friendly “witch,” although she seems more like a fairy who periodically visits Lyra to help her on her journey. Sam Elliott pulls his trademark cowboy duty as Lee Scorseby, a balloon aviator who points Lyra toward a polar bear named Iorek (voiced by Ian McKellen), ostensibly to protect her. But Iorek serves mainly to grind a personal axe against the North’s polar bear king Ragnar (Ian McShane). The CGI daemons (cartoon monkey, rat, rabbit and cat) are strictly secondrate in a movie inevitably about war at a time when most audiences are battlefatigued from the world’s tumultuous state of affairs. None of the characters attract anywhere near the level of empathy that accompanied those of The Chronicles of Narnia, much less the Lord of the Rings trilogy. However entertaining the literary source material for The Golden Compass might be, we never get a sense of how the quirky clockwork device is used to secure and protect the ideal of “free will” that Pullman poses as the highest value for his protagonists. The Golden Compass is designed to open the way for sequels, but judging from the poor quality of the first bloated installment it hardly seems an endeavor worth pursuing. MTW

Sacred Love Deva Premal and Miten bring enlightenment to Maui As far as couples go, Deva Premal and Miten seem to have it all–love, adventure and successful music careers. On paper, they appear to be quite the odd couple. Premal was born in Germany and is a classically trained musician who actually grew up singling mantras taught to her by her parents. Miten, born Andy Desmond, grew up in London during the 60’s, which means that he left a life of sex, drugs and rock & roll to look for something “more substantial.”

as a by-product of these things. What exactly is a mantra? It is the name of God in her/his many different aspects in Sanskrit. It is a collection of sounds, which… create certain beneficial responses in the body/mind organism. To chant them repeatedly is very effective on many different levels. Do people need to be able to sing to experience the power of mantra?

Deva Premal and Miten Dec. 11 at the Maui Prince Hotel Tickets: $35 advance, $40 day of 875- 8820

They met 17 years ago in India and ever since have toured the world spreading peace, love and beauty through their music and the art of tantra. I was able to catch up with Premal and Miten via email while they were in Mexico giving a tantric workshop in between performances of their 2007 North American tour, which includes a Dec. 11 performance at the Maui Prince Hotel in Makena: MAUI TIME WEEKLY: I briefly read about your “love story” meeting in India many years ago. How is your relationship different today? DEVA PREMAL and MITEN: No different. Still fresh, still clean. We met 17 years ago (in an ashram in India). Our connection with each other is based on freedom, respect, encouragement and fun. And of course love, but our experience has shown us that love grows

No. You can sit in silence and be showered by the sound. It would have the same effect. But singing mantras doesn’t require a great singing voice. Mantras have their own intrinsic power and they have a way of supporting you. Even if you “think” you can’t sing, you find your voice blending with others. And in addition to that, when people sing together, they breathe together. This creates a sense of synchronicity, which in itself creates a great sense of communion. Do you believe music affects the veil between the physical and the ethereal worlds? Music is the veil between the physical and the ethereal world. It is the bridge. Please explain what a person does at a tantric retreat. Our particular tantric retreat is called “TantraMantra,” in which we use the singing voice, and the mantras, to open us up to the world of tantric love. Basically we sing and meditate together, with tantric exercises, which are facilitated by our friend and tantra master, Swami Rafia. Do you have any recommendations for couples that seem to loose touch over the years? We don’t really have any answers. We just feel blessed to have been able to be with each other and live a life that has been guided by a spiritual teacher–in our case, Osho. The music we make together is a huge chunk, too. It has become a great addition to our tantric practice. To be creative together is a beautiful thing. In your interview with Yoga Journal, you implied that making love is a sacred moment. What is a simple way for couples to start embracing this idea if they don’t feel the sacredness? Look for it... Be open to the possibility that there is something beyond “The Known.” What is your favorite area or thing about Maui? The nature around Hana. MTW

Out of this World Alien in a Bottle [CD] How is it possible to resist a band named Uncle Dirty? You just can’t. Let me spill the beans on a little something here folks: I get uku pile CDs every month by people wanting reviews, but somehow Alien in a Bottle jumped to the top of the list. The band, which consists of Jimmy C (drums and back up vocals), Kit Hain (bass and back up vocals), Patrick Moser (rhythm guitar and lead vocal) and John Ness (lead guitar), is funky, weird, hilarious and strangely easy to listen to. Their groovy style makes me want to get really sunburned and consume umbrella drinks by day and toke massive reefer by night. “Locals Only” is a great song that includes the line, “Local’s only. Tough titties,” and their title track is all about drinking too much Patron and extraterrestrials. What more can I say? Alien in a Bottle will make you scratch your head, think deep and giggle. But most of all, it’s a fun hip album to groove to. That’s important, you know.

How to Be a Ninja (in five days) [WEBSITE] Now this is a question that I have long pondered: How can I become a ninja as quick as possible? Believe it or not, I’ve found a website that addresses this subject in depth. I should mention that they sell a ninjitsu manual on the webpage, but offer some cool tips nonetheless. One of the subjects that they cover is “Assassination” and according to the website, “You’ll feel absolute confidence once you know how easy it is to deal with fatal, irreversible killing blows...” The site outlines methods such as fundamentalist ninjitsu strikes, how to kill in three seconds and how to ambush from behind—above and below! Now that I think about it, this would be really bad info for a psycho wanna-be ninja. On the other hand, the online newsletter course is free. In my first transmittal from the Black Dragon Ryu, they give specific exercises for awakening one’s awareness. Catch this site while you can. I have a feeling the government will shut it down with a massive karate chop. (

FATE [MAGAZINE] Elves. Fairies. Big Foot. The Loch Ness Monster. Aliens. Poltergeists. Psychics. Ghosts. What do all of these things have in common? They all appear in FATE magazine. FATE has been published since 1948 and is to the Weekly World News what People Magazine is to the National Enquirer. What I mean is that although they cover some pretty strange stories that may seem similar to “Bearded Baby Born with Two Left Feet!” they are actually pretty reputable when it comes to their sources. For example, instead of interviewing the batu-smoking guy running out of the cane-field screaming, “Alien!” they interview people like Jack Sarfatti—a quantum physicist—about his strange encounters with the unexplained. It’s entertainment at it’s finest. MTW

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) You’ve got so many people on your side. Why can’t you see it? Your tendency to focus on your few detractors rather than your numerous supporters is not only mentally destructive self-sabotage, it’s also mean to those who love you. They’re starting to feel like cheerleaders on the sidelines, screaming their adoration and support, and their favorite team responds by giving them the finger. This is a home game, my dear, and almost everyone who showed up is rooting for you to win. Stop paying attention to the little knot of die-hards who will never be on your side, and give it those who deserve it: the people who know and love you.

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) There are a million reasons to keep trying, not least of which is that you’re a Capricorn, renowned for persistence and determination. That’s why I’m shocked that you’re considering giving up, after tripping over a tiny stumbling block. I’ve seen you leap tall buildings! Don’t tell me you’ve had enough, lest I lose all faith in your fortitude and tenacity. Buck up, soldier. What’s happened to you? You’re able to take a little criticism and rejection, and learn from it, believe it or not. Pull that famous thick skin out of the closet, wrap it around yourself, and charge back into the fray.

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) Sleep on it. I know you, like all Aquarians, pair a general open-mindedness with a deep stubbornness. It’s the latter that’s making you flat-out reject the advice of your friends. Please consider the possibility— however unlikely—that they might be right, and sleep on it. If you wake up still feeling strongly about it, then by all means continue with your plan. They could be wrong, after all, or lack your vision. And if they’re right—well, you’ll just have to learn your lesson the hard way, which isn’t so bad. At least that way you won’t soon forget it.

PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) Some people have simple fears. They’re scared of dogs, or flying in planes, or of the number thirteen. Those kinds of fears are easy to confront and practice surmounting. Your fears, though, are generally more complex and subtle, and there’s no simple way to get over them. The best you can probably do is learn to live with them, or in spite of them. The first step, though, is figuring out—as much as possible— just what they are. This week you have a good chance of renegotiating terms with your fears. You may not be able to forge a peace, exactly, but some of kind of truce is certainly possible.

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) I’m simultaneously pessimistic and optimistic enough to imagine aliens coming upon the ruins of our civilization someday, and using it to teach their children the perils of selfishness and shortsightedness. “They tried to save themselves,” they’d say, “but it was too little, too late.” The same, I’m afraid, might be said of you in a few weeks, though the stakes aren’t as high as the life or death of civilization. Your heart’s in the right place, and I won’t say you’re not trying. But might I suggest that you—and all of humankind—perhaps consider trying a lot harder, a lot sooner?

You may feel grievously overlooked, but you’ve actually been noticed. It’s just taking time for the good word to trickle back to you. Don’t screw this up by demanding recognition that’s already coming, before it actually gets to you; it’ll be retracted straight away, and you’ll be left looking the idiot. There’s nothing you can do but be patient, or risk screwing it all up. It may take much longer than you’d like, but eventually your hard work and talents will get the praise they deserve. Until then, keep quietly and modestly showing them off.

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) I know one Gemini whose catchphrase is, “Who are we talking about?” Because of the way she pounces on each tidbit of juicy gossip as if it’s the first morsel of food she’s seen in months, people tend to clam up around her, forcing her to wring details out of them with the tenacity of a pit bull worrying a bit of flesh off a bone. Dial down the desperation and relax, whatever it is you’re hunting. You might miss a chance or two because you’re not clutching at it desperately, but I’m sure you’ll pick up many more as a result, without even trying.

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Sometimes your unpleasant dreams are simply the detritus of your days being shat out; it’s a psychic digestive process. Occasionally, however, they’re a message from the you that lives below conscious thought. That message might be obvious, like, “You’re anxious about that upcoming change,” or it might be something more subtle that’s harder to figure out. It’s worth getting to the bottom of it this week, because it’s probably something important, and not necessarily bad; knowing what’s going on beneath the surface of your thoughts could not only help you avoid imminent trouble, but it could also enable imminent success.

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) I know, it’s depressing that the sun has set before you even get out of work, but don’t let it get you down. A gloomy Leo is a crime against humanity, albeit just a misdemeanor. We need the sun, too, and when that’s not around much, you’re the next best thing. Shine, Leo. It’s your astrological duty to the rest of us who put up with your shit the rest of the year and forgive you your flaws. Now we need you to glow more than ever. This week, concentrate on finding a source of psychic fuel that will enable you to do just that.

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) One thing I like you about you is your “what you see is what you get” nature. You don’t have time to go around pretending to be something you’re not, or that you’re cooler than you are. You’ve got stuff to do. Sure, there are many little quirks or idiosyncrasies (some might call then neuroses) that only become clear once someone knows you very well, but there are generally no big surprises; you’re essentially the same person ten years on that you were the day we met you. This information might be enormously comforting to someone you know; please be sure they get it. Since simply telling them yourself might lack credibility, find a messenger to subtly do it for you.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) “Hey loser, zip it up. We don’t want to see your junk!” That’s the way a Scorpio might point out that someone’s fly is open. You Libras, on the other hand, proudly proclaim that you’re masters of tact, and wouldn’t dream of openly pointing out someone’s screw-ups in front of everyone. Unfortunately, you sometimes also balk at the kinder option of taking them aside and giving them a helpful bit of advice. Instead you choose to say nothing at all. That, in the end, is more malicious and dirty than a Scorpio’s tactless comments. Speak up, Libra, or someone else will—or, worse yet, no one will.

SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) You call people on their shit. I personally find this to be one of your more endearing qualities but I’m generally tough enough to take it and appreciate it. Some more thin-skinned folks, however, might consider you brutal and uncompromising (and even hypocritical) when you tell them to look at their own shortcomings or blind spots. Have a little sympathy for these softies this week. The holidays are coming up, after all, and if the sad sacks can’t catch a break then, when can they? In fact, I’d suggest using any way you can to show the softer, gentler side of you this week (even if it means biting your tongue until it bleeds).

DECEMBER 6, 2007



Meditate, meditate, meditate. Here on Maui, you hear it all the time. Sometimes I get sick of pretending like I know what it’s all about. But then again, I may just be jealous, because for the life of me I can’t quite get there. I was raised as a Christian and was always given the message that “clearing one’s mind” was a recipe for disaster. And by disaster, I mean opening the portal to evil and negative sprits, which would be a major bummer. As I’ve gotten older and a teeny-bit more open minded, I realize that this type of thinking is probably a major crock-o-crap, but then again, what if it’s true? A rotating head, skittering up walls and regurgitating slime is not something you want to mess around with. Granted, I have tried meditation a few times in the past. Once was in high school during our world religion class. It was a guided meditation and we were supposed to walk down the beach and meet up with God who in turn was supposed to tell us something deep and meaningful. So, I walked down the beach and met God (who, by the way looked kind of like a Paia hippie). The visualization bubble burst when God opened his mouth and asked, “Whom do you serve?” It was a little creepy. Other meditation attempts have also freaked me out. Several years ago a small group of us decided to meditate and I started tripping out–flashes of people and places raced through my mind. This white house kept popping up like a flash card from hell while I heard, “Someone will be murdered here” over and over. No, I wasn’t on drugs—at least not that I recall. Anyway, I haven’t lived in a white house since, but to be fair, I haven’t saved any lives from my vision either. Speaking of visions, sometimes I have them and they are utterly and completely useless. For three nights in a row before the tragic plane crash into BMW Maui a year or so ago, I dreamed of plane crashes. Repeatedly. It really bothered me, but what was I supposed to do about it? It’s not like I’m Sylvia Brown and can send a message via the Montel Williams Show to tell people to not fly any planes for a while. Just today, I figured out that I’ve had the whole meditation thing all wrong. You see, meditation is actually concentrated attention on an object of thought or awareness. It’s the act of turning your attention inward to a single point of reference. Come to find out I rock at it! I meditate all the time… Just not on the good stuff. I can go for days thinking about something that really gets my goat. I go through the motions of daily living, but inside I’m seething on the subject. It really is a point of focus. I can get so worked up about something that it affects not just my health, but my relationships as well. So if meditating on the positive brings you to a higher state of altered consciousness, dwelling on things like anger and resentment will bring you to a–you guessed it–lower state of consciousness. I think that we all meditate, but we call it different stuff like “focused on,” “wrapped up in” or “can’t stop thinking about.” So now that I’ve realized that I’m a meditation whiz of the dark-side, I want to change it. Who wants to be the bad-vibes girl? Starr Begley has an eBay addiction and is requesting an intervention. MTW
