The Coqui Frog Threatens Us All

Every Monday Night!

We all know that Maui is an extremely beautiful island. It has a marvelously diverse ecosystem full of exotic flora and fauna you just don’t find anywhere else in the world. But if you take one element out, or add a wildcard invasive species, and you could push everything to chaos. I’m speaking of the dreaded Caribbean coqui frog. Not only does this rapidly reproducing species threaten to upset Maui’s predator-prey balance, but it is also irritating as all hell. The coqui frogs have no natural predators on Maui. That means they mate like gangbusters, often reaching densities of 8,000 frogs per acre. And they eat all kinds of insects, except mosquitoes. That means the mosquito population will even accelerate. There goes our delicately balanced ecosystem. More disturbing—literally and figuratively, the males emit a loud mating call at night. And I’m not joking about it getting loud—sound meters have registered it at around 100 decibels, which is about as loud as a 747 landing on your roof. We must eradicate the coqui frog. Massive and deliberate citric acid spraying seems our best hope.

No, I Don’t By Billy the coqui frog I’m sorry, I didn’t know that “Let’s Slaughter all Coqui Frogs” month had arrived. Seems like only yesterday that we were breaking out the torches and pitchforks over the ungodly feral chicken infestation. While it’s true my buddies and I aren’t native to this lovely, lovely island, I don’t see how that makes me different from most of you wannabe frog-butchers. No, I get it: you guys move here and rip apart farmland and forests to make homes but us coqui frogs show up and suddenly it’s the apocalypse. Okay, so I make a loud mating call at night. But so does that newlywed couple who lives down the block. You don’t see me crying to state officials about it! But what I really don’t get is that beef over how we eat all insects except mosquitoes. What’s so surprising about that? Would you want to eat a mosquito? Those things are sharp, and they’re all gross and filled with blood. And yeah, we hide during the day and come out only at night. You would, too, if some yahoo was running after you with a citric acid gun. And I read through the University of Hawaii’s Coqui Frog literature—especially the line “you can kill it humanely by freezing it for at least three hours.” A slow death in the cooler is “humane?!”

More Radical Action How Earth Day went down at MCC To a pioneering sliver of our society, Earth Day is more than a bumper sticker on your car. Last week I was able to understand this—even, as they say, live in balance, breathing every breath to save the planet. I was fortunate enough to see hundreds of people around Hawaii work for a more sustainable world. Some scenes reminded me of why we do what we need to do, while others inspired me to do even more than before. It began with a three-day conference at Maui Community College featuring speakers leading the way for a green Hawaii and sustainable world. Anthropologist Robin Ridington shared his decades of experience in living with the Doig First Nation in British Columbia. The Doig face the loss of their habitat as well as racism toward their

“This planet is being stripped,” said Green Party leader and political science professor Ira Rohter. “We are dumping in the sink of the earth.” Rohter then asked if Americans can break the hypnotic trance emanating from television. His alternative is practicing collective consciousness within our community. “We need more radical action,” he said. “We have to get people involved to realize it’s their planet. Sustainable society is sprouting up through seeds of environmental projects.” Later, Kelly King described the educational process that backs up biodiesel fuel production. King helped create the first biodiesel pump in the U.S.—which is right here on Maui. The fuel is actually economically cheaper than current gasoline prices, which is partly why consumption is growing. “Sustainability is alive,” King said. “For the

“Power is in the people,” he said. “If we move together we can succeed.” Then Uncle Wayne asked us to wake up to the issue of preservation of our planet. Through song and drum, students sang their hearts and pounded their convictions. The lyrics liberated the souls to listen to the pulse of the planet. All the talks took place within the Starlodge, an eco cottage constructed by community leaders and students to show what people can do when we come together to make positive social and ecological change in Hawaii. More importantly, it provided a living model of how Maui could have affordable housing built in harmony with the earth. MTW

“THIS PLANET IS BEING STRIPPED,” SAID GREEN PARTY LEADER AND POLITICAL SCIENCE PROFESSOR IRA ROHTER. “WE ARE DUMPING IN THE SINK OF THE EARTH.” people and way of life. It didn’t help matters when geologists found oil beneath their traditional lands. They say that as long as there is a community, it will hold the future of all indigenous peoples together. But the Doig now have to deal with the loss of what they call their Dreamers—the people who hold their community together. Other speakers included journalists sharing the inside scoop on environmental issues in Hawaii. Jan Ten Bruggencafe writes to encourage readers to think about the interconnectedness of humanity and ecology. “We minimally understand the interlocking of the web of life on the planet and the impact if we end its existence,” he said, referring to animals, plants and insects of the world.

first time, I see elected officials looking beyond their terms. We have to do this for our earth. We have to take action for our children.” Then she shared a story of her most recent, albeit partial convert: a Marine who drives a Hummer with stickers announcing “Semper Fi” as well as “Biodiesel: No War Required.” Maui County Councilwoman Joanne Johnson inspired students to get involved in government and get development dollars out of our democracy. “We need to find good candidates,” she said, encouraging a slate of students geared toward stewardship, sustainability and smart growth. Hawaiian activist Isaac Harp provided insight into the struggle for self-determination and self-sufficiency and the necessity of working together. He also described his vision of a shared community for all cultures in Hawaii.

Jeffery R. Mattos is a 19-year old kid who sometimes works for your Maui County Department of Liquor Control as a “minor decoy.” Flanked by plainclothes cops and undercover LC investigators, Mattos will go into bars or mini-marts and try to buy booze. While he’s too young to nip at the sauce, he’s already chosen a favorite beverage. That would be a nice cold bottle of Heineken. Way back on Sept. 11, 2003, Mattos succeeded in buying a cold Heiny at the Hang Loose Lounge in Kahului. A few weeks later, in a sting that had Mattos roll north on Front Street in Lahaina, Mattos bought Heinekens at Bamboo Sports Bar and at Cool Cat Café. A Feb. 1, 2004 sting found Mattos in now-closed Breakwater in Lahaina asking for the usual. It’s a bold choice. The first Heineken brewery opened in Holland on Dec. 16, 1863. But the green bottles didn’t reach American shores—Hoboken, New Jersey, to be exact—until three days after the federal government struck down Prohibition in 1933. Sold in 170 countries, the company bills itself as “the most international brewery group in the world,” whatever that means. In 1999 it sold an amazing 90.9 million hectoliters of beer. If it were oil, that volume would fill roughly 57 million barrels. “Respect… Quality… Enjoyment,” states company press materials. “Simply put, these are the Heineken values.” And Mattos values his Heineken. LC chief investigator Bill Pacheco, who usually rides along on the stings, confirmed that minor decoys get to choose their own poison when the operation goes down. “A lot of times they’re nervous,” he said. “We don’t tell them what to order. We leave it up to them.” A lot of times, Pacheco added, the decoys will just pick something from the shelf or mimic what the other customers are ordering. The only recent time Mattos didn’t try to put his hands on a Heiny was a few months ago when he bought a six-pack of Moosehead Beer during a sting on the 2 Go Tesoro mini-mart in Kihei. And that sale was inexplicable—what adult orders Moosehead?

MONDAY, APR. 19 Hawaiian cultural consultant Charles Kauluwehi Maxwell, Sr. has his panties in a twist over the Apr. 13 edition of The Maui News, which ran a photo of a dead ancient Hawaiian cowboy from a Big Island cave. He called the decision to run the photo “shocking and demeaning.” “[O]ne would think that the media in general would show some compassion and sensitivity in respect to the Hawaiian cultural beliefs about degrading the spirits of the dead.” But Maxwell saved his best material for the end: “I hope that the warnings of our kupuna hold true that if you fool around with things that are dead and you are not doing it for good reasons, bad luck will follow you.” We’d run the photo as well, but there’s something about ancient skeletons that gives us the creeps… If only Maxwell reserved such fury for Seibu’s big plans to convert Makena and all the Hawaiian archaeological sites within it into a giant resort, rather than supporting the project as he does. In any case, Maxwell has a history of complaining about insensitive coverage in The Maui News. Four years ago, he warned editors “to be more sensitive to their coverage of the Hula Bowl” after the paper ran a story warning fans to bring umbrellas because it might rain during the game.

TUESDAY, APR. 20 I like to think I’m up on the latest brush fire-related news and events, so I was very happy to get the latest press release from Firewise Communities. I don’t know what the eggheads over in “fire science” are up to these days, but now they’re saying brush fires and other out-of-control conflagrations are bad. Really? Wow, that’s a trip. Anyway, for those of you who agree

with this radical viewpoint and want to stamp out brush fires before they, um, flare up, the folks at Firewise are planning a big “work day” when volunteers will clear brush. “The Firewise work day in Makawao is a great way for people to learn about Firewise and how they can protect their own homes from brush fires,” wrote Firewise Community Liaison Denise Laitinen. “Since the workday will be featured in a video we’re making with the County Fire Department, volunteers get a chance to be a local movie star as well.” Don’t laugh—it’s how Ben Affleck got his start.

THE WEEK IN REVIEW

WEDNESDAY, APR. 21 In a shocking disregard for the sanctity of our collective ancestors, Wailuku Elementary School officials opened a time capsule buried on school grounds back on May 21, 1904 last night, which was A MONTH EARLY! According to today’s Maui News, it took volunteers over six hours to drill through the concrete block in which the capsule—a sealed iron sewer pipe—was encased. Once the desecration was complete, officials and curious children opened the capsule and discovered old coins, a Canadian one-cent stamp, some old newspapers and a list of judges, all proving the old adage that people a hundred years ago were just as dull and boring as we are… A fouralarm fire raged through an air duct in the Wailea Four Seasons Resort Maui, forcing the evacuation of 1,100 guests and staff members. Wait, did I say four-alarm fire? Yeah, I just thought writing “four-alarm fire” would make me sound cool. I actually have no idea how many alarms were sounded. But I do know seven fire companies responded and took a couple hours to extinguish the blaze. Assistant Fire Chief Alan Cordeiro told The Maui News that only one firefighter suffered a “minor injury,” but that 100 rooms “were affected” by the fire, which also ended up caus-

Though I find his assertion that “Only public outrage and the threat of being kicked out of office may cause them to reassess their policies” to be way too optimistic… This doesn’t mean much to normal working people, but reporters and political analysts everywhere were stunned when in his latest column Maui Weekly Publisher/Editor in Chief Joseph Sugarman actually used the phrase “I remember once when President [Gerald] Ford made a bold leadership move” in a sentence.

Did someone say George W. Bush doesn’t care about the environment? Add the Tucson, Arizona-based Center for Biological Diversity to the list. In a new report, picked up today by the Associated Press, alleges that federal fish and wildlife officials in the Bush Administration are allowing species to go extinct at an alarming rate. Specifically, the Center says federal officials are delaying listing certain species as “endangered” to avoid “political controversy even when it knew the likely result would be the extinction of the species.” In addition, federal endangered species funding has dropped to a mere $3 million a year—a number so insignificant it’s nearly a ninth of what Hawaii state officials spend on charter schools alone. For their part, federal officials deny what they call “the inflammatory claim.” In any case, our islands have been hit especially hard, In fact, nearly half of the 114 species who’ve gone extinct in the 20 years since the Endangered Species Act went into effect were in Hawaii.

NEWSOFTHEWEIRD BIG STORY A 2003 British documentary, Fat Girls and Feeders, debuting on Australian TV in April 2004, profiled an Arizona couple, “Gina” (once one of the world’s largest women) and her husband, “Mark” (who has a sensual or psychological desire that she be ever-larger). Because Gina is apparently comfortable with her role, Mark is merely an “enabler” in the “fat administration” subculture, but more dominant men are called “feeders,” who may even “grow” their partners by pouring liquid fat down their throats. Gina once weighed 825 pounds (with a 92-inch waist), but had settled down at around 400. The filmmaker’s point is said to be that objectifying fat women is only somewhat more offensive than objectifying thin ones.

FLORIDA’S UNRULY SENIORS In March, a 62-year-old man was ejected from the Spring Haven Retirement Community (Winter Haven, Fla.) after he punched one resident (age 86) and bit another (age 78) in a brawl over his apparent habit of foraging at the communal salad bar for his favorite kind of lettuce. (His 80-year-old mother, also a resident, conceded that, “it did appear that he was playing with the food.”)

THE SACRED INSTITUTION OF MARRIAGE Saudi businessman Saleh al-Saiairi, 64, who has been married to 58 women (but never more than four at one time), announced he would soon take two more brides and was preparing to randomly select the two current wives he would have to divorce (March). And David Boyd announced as a candidate for the Canadian Parliament, from Halifax, on a

platform of marriage reform, specifically to permit same-sex, group and human-android marriages (March).

AMERICA’S WORSENING GULLIBILITY PROBLEM Todd Lorin Nelson, a 13-year employee of the Miami-Dade (Fla.) county clerk’s office, was summoned for jury duty in April 2003, reported to the courtroom, and was quickly dismissed. However, according to police, he repeatedly called his boss over the next few months to say that he had been selected as a juror for a big case but couldn’t talk about it (all the while drawing his $35,000 government salary), and it was not until October that the boss finally investigated, resulting in Nelson’s arrest.

LEAST COMPETENT CRIMINALS Troy D. Nunes, 37, became the latest ordinary burglar to die at his crime scene. He broke into a Hollywood Video store in Quincy, Mass., in March by tossing a brick through a window, but a shard of glass remained protruding, and as Nunes was leaving, he accidentally slashed his right femoral artery and died of blood loss just down the street. However, another clumsy burglar is still alive (and was arrested in Columbus, Ohio, in March), despite apparently habitually cutting himself at crime scenes. Columbus police said they had found what they believe is his DNA in seven different burglarized stores in Columbus and Cleveland.

UNUSUAL MURDER DEFENSE Raymond Rodriguez, 25, was found not guilty in the murder of a 77-year-old drinking buddy after he testified to having, at the crime scene, hallucinations of bologna and cheese dancing around in the refrigerator and, in the freezer, a green man who told Rodriguez, “Catch me if you can” (San Antonio, December).

A Headful of Recovery Judge Shackley Raffetto and Maui Drug Court Shackley Raffetto is a gray-haired man with an easy smile and a soft voice who looks every bit like the tax attorney he used to be. That he’ll soon be entering his second 10-year term as a Maui Circuit Court judge is also pretty easy to believe. Same with his prior service as a U.S. Naval Reserve member of the Judge Advocate General Corps, or his current work as an instructor in the Defense Institute for Legal Studies, which offers training and advisement to jurists in emerging democracies. About the only thing not immediately believable about Shackley Raffetto is his view of how the courts should deal with drug offenders. “I think a lot of [why people do drugs] is self-medication,” he said in a recent interview. “We’ve had lots of people who’ve had extraordinary traumas in their youth. I really think a lot of it is self-medication. The first thing an addict knows is that the drug works. It blocks out the pain. There are side effects, like it leads to crime. We ask people who enter the program to write an essay about why they’re here. They mention abuse, violence, terrible things. Because they get into drug use and criminality they get marginalized in our society. And we’ve got to bring them back. Even when you send someone to prison, they’re coming back. And we have to address that—make them a county asset again.” In the current legal world of mandatory minimum sentences, so-called “Three Strikes” laws and jails overflowing with non-violent drug offenders, such views— especially from Maui County Drug Court’s presiding judge—are refreshing. Drug Court Administrator Barbara-Ann Keller agreed. “One of the things I’m really grateful for is that we have a judge who thinks outside the box,” she said. At the same time, progressive views or not, Raffetto will not hesitate to be harsh. By coincidence, the same day I sat with him in a jury room at the county courthouse, Raffetto sentenced a pregnant woman to jail. “Maybe this will be the best thing that would happen to you,” Raffetto told the 28-year old woman as he sentenced her to five years in prison for repeatedly getting arrested with drugs. Drug Court is finishing up its fourth year on Maui. In that time there have been 119 graduates—people who’ve completed at least 15 months of exhaustive drug treatment and counseling in exchange for not going to prison. Of those graduates, just 14 percent have returned to drug use. There are currently 92 men and women

The judge and his books in Drug Court (a juvenile court is in the works). By comparison, all of Oahu—which has had drug court since the mid 1990s—has just 115. “I counted up individual crimes on the people in court,” said Raffetto. “It came to over 600 crimes, what they got caught for. We’ve basically stopped a minor crime wave. No rehab program comes even close to that. If they flunk out, they go to prison. [But] we err on the side of giving people a chance. Ninetyfive percent of the crime in this county is alcohol and drug related. We give a headful of recovery to people in the program. The average age [when drug use begins] is 13 years old. They don’t have the information in their head. But now, they know what to do for the first time in our lives.” Drug Court dates back to 1980s Dade

County, Florida, where then-District Attorney Janet Reno introduced the concept to deal with the large influx of drug offenders jamming the court dockets and prison yards. When she became U.S. Attorney General in 1993, she helped expand Drug Court nationwide. Raffetto believes Drug Court is a success because it requires users to start thinking, perhaps for the first time in their lives. “They learn how to think,” said Raffetto. “We’re putting out a message that’s significant. There’s a synergy when we get them all together. When they graduate—most of these people never graduated from high school. This is their graduation.” Raffetto then recalled what happened to one graduate. The incident is, of course, purely anecdotal, but it tells a lot of how Raffetto sees Drug Court fitting into society.

“I kicked a guy out of the program,” he said. “We tried and tried. He’d been in a year or so. He went to prison. Now he’s a parole officer. He’s now planning to go to MCCC as a substance abuse counselor. But we’ll see. He’s a big guy, tattoos all over his arms. But he has a very powerful personality. He could be a leader. “The pendulum kind of swings back and forth,” Raffetto added. “There is the thought that courts should only decide disputes and not do social work. For a while imprisonment was the only solution. When the program started on Oahu, here there was a mandatory five-year sentencing for non-violent drug crimes. But sentiment is now going the other way.” Indeed, Raffetto is pushing Maui Drug Court beyond what Oahu created. Until three months ago Drug Court was only open to those awaiting trial or already on probation. But there are two unprecedented new “tracks” into the program for parole violators as well as current inmates of Maui Community Correctional Center. For them, successful completion of the program will get them released from prison. “Just imagine when we have 1,000 graduations!” said Raffetto. “In a place like Maui, one person has an effect on 10.” MTW

ld Hawaiian legend holds that in order to please his mother, the demigod Maui set out to capture the sun, to force him to move slower across the sky. After hiding in Haleakala, the house where the sun rested each night, Maui ambushed the sun, then tied him up with a rope made from coconut fibers. When the sun refused to fly slower—and allow Maui’s mother more time to dry her damp fabrics—Maui broke off the sun’s longest legs, making it impossible for him to speed across the sky. That’s pretty well known. In fact, the story appears on the Maui Jim Sunglasses webpage. But what isn’t well known is that there are people on Maui— a few, not many—who are reaching out and capturing the sun on their own. And it’s saving them tons of money. Hugh and Linda Stott are one such couple. They live in Haiku. They’re normal, respectable, have a beautiful family and understand

COVER STORY

Imported oil supplies virtually all of Hawaii’s energy needs. There is no other place in the U.S. so critically dependent on imported oil. The oil is burned at the four steam generating units in Kahului or the 15 diesel generators and cycle combustion turbine in Ma’alaea. The Maui Electric Company (MECO) buys some power from the Hawaiian Commercial and Sugar Company (HC&S) when they burn the remnants from sugar cane refining in Pu’unene, but

malls,” said Brad Albert of locally based Rising Sun Solar, which helps homeowners convert their dwellings to solar-power. “Maui is becoming more developed, but by incorporating solar into our buildings we are living in harmony with what nature and Maui have given us. People talk about the future and fuel cells, but solar is here and available. We can install one next week.” Already popular are solar water heaters, where the sun’s energy is used to heat water directly. Since 1996, more than 4,000 of these systems have been installed on Maui. But that’s basically just a souped-up water heater. It doesn’t produce any power. Going solar all the way requires covering portions of your roof with photovoltaic (PV) panels to generate your own electricity. It’s a big step forward. “We all need to shift our attitudes towards these things, but the question is, do you punish the wrong or do you reward the right?” says Hugh Stott. “For example Biodiesel should be

“Maui is becoming more developed, but by incorporating solar into our buildings we are living in harmony with what nature and Maui have given us. People talk about the future and fuel cells, but solar is here and available. We can install one next week.” that “living off the grid” isn’t just for tree-huggers anymore. “We decided to build our new house with the grid-tie net metering solar system,” says Hugh Stott. “Of course, the system is a big expense for no immediate return at all. But then, basically I thought we had to do it. It’s the same reason why I learned to fly—if you can do it, you should!” Stott and I are sitting in his living room. The structure itself uses virtually no wood. Instead, its cement-steel construction acts as near-perfect air-conditioning-free insulation, keeping all the heat outside. Except for that bit of engineering—and the photovoltaic solar panels that cover the roof and provide 100 percent of their energy—the house is pretty normal. After a while, his wife Linda comes home and joins us. “We didn’t want to use treated and poisoned wood with our kids growing up in this house,” she says. “That’s also the reason why we wanted to go for the net metered solar and not the

10

battery storing one. The batteries would eventually have to be thrown away and I didn’t like that idea. When we signed up last September, we were proudly told that we were the ninth house on the island to do so. I would have thought there would be at least between 30 and 50 or even more, like 80. Can you imagine—the sun shines here all the time, there are a lot of people with enough money here and we are only the ninth house on the entire island?”

it’s negligible when compared to the 90 to 95 percent of our power that comes from torching the icky remains of dead dinosaurs. Yet in a single second the sun produces enough energy to supply the world’s needs for the next 2,000 years. For a relatively small upfront investment, you could capture the tiniest fraction of that energy and automatically convert your home into an energy-producing powerhouse. Overnight you’d save 35 percent of your taxes. You would, as people who’ve done this like to brag, actually be able to go outside to your electric meter and watch the little needle spin back. Rather than suck up juice from generators powered by oil or worse and transmitted here, you’d produce so much energy you could dump the surplus back onto the power grid and start getting checks from the electric company instead of bills. “Solar is out of the woods or the jungle as it were and in the subdivisions and the mini

rewarded more and get all possible help.” The Stotts’ attitudes have shifted rapidly. For instance, they just purchased their first freezer, which costs them nothing to run each month. To them, solar is an untapped frontier just waiting to explode. “I think solar powered cars would be great here,” says Linda. “Unfortunately they only go about 30 mph, so we would not be allowed on Hana Highway.” We may not have solar-powered cars, but not long ago we had electric cars, capable of high-speed and at least a 150mile range. When some mainland consumers recharged their cars at their solar-powered houses, the effect on the environment was the same as if the cars had PV panels attached to their roofs. But the story of electric-powered cars is, as we now know, a tragedy in itself. Pushed a decade ago by tougher clean-air requirements in states like California, the automakers pro-


By Inga Stracke duced them only half-heartedly. As more business-minded officials took over air regulatory boards, those mandates vanished. The cars went with them. Incredibly, automakers forcibly removed them from customers who’d fallen in love with their low power costs, high acceleration and virtually maintenancefree engines. Though electric cars proved popular with consumers, neither the government nor Corporate America ever gave them a chance. But this doesn’t stop Linda Stott from hoping. “I hope the government starts thinking about more tax incentives for alternative energies,” she said, smiling. “Look at all this money Bush is putting into his election campaign. If a fraction of that would be used for solar energy or other alternative systems, this world would be a much better place.” Her husband agreed. “We talk to a lot of people and show friends around our house,” he said. “If we can convince at least one more person to go

solar, that would be great.”

Whether the Stotts had anything to do with it isn’t known, but MECO says there are now 13 solar home systems running on Maui, with a 14th in the works. The number definitely shows forward progress, but is still miniscule when considering the number of conventionalwired homes being built every week. The biggest reason seems to be the high upfront investment in technology that’s required. The cost of converting a house to solar power begins at $10,000 and climbs rather rapidly to $90,000 or more. “It is a big investment, but you can save money by building with integrated PV shingles instead of using normal shingles and building the solar PV on top of them,” said Spencer Eldred, a commercial efficiency program manager at MECO. “Or you can give the panels additional use, like we did in our recent project at the Lahaina Civic Center gymnasium complex. Together with the Electric

Power Research Institute, MECO has added an awning to the walkway, consisting of PV panels. They power a 1.1 [kilowatt] PV digital electric sign and a parking lot light nearby.” Gone are the days when you had to be careful about using too much of your solar-generated power. Now, renewable energy systems can either charge the system’s backup batteries or—if you’re on a net metering system—even spin your meter back. In 2001, Hawaii was the 34th state to allow net metering, which costs residents nothing. It’s really quite simple: your house is connected to the electric power grid just as it would normally be, with your meter running forward when you’re using electricity. But during those times when your solar system produces more electricity than is being used, the meter will run backwards as your surplus power gets dumped back on the grid for others to use. At the end of the month, you’re only billed for the net

power you took from the system. If you produced more power than you brought in— and you’ve set up a separate “power purchase agreement” with the utility—MECO will actually pay you each month. For a three-bedroom, singlefamily home, Rising Sun Solar’s Brad Albert suggests a 2.5-kilowatt “grid-tie solar electric system,” mounted on the south-facing roof space on your house. The system consists of 18 Sharp panels. It makes no noise as it has no moving parts. On the sunny part of Maui, this should produce about 1,421 kilowatts each day—more than enough to handle your home needs. Such a system costs $21,215—a steep cost, considering you can buy a nice car for that kind of money. But the State of Hawaii now gives a 35 percent tax credit—maximum $1,750—to residential customers who go solar. When you add in drastically reduced, if not completely eliminated electricity costs, your average annual saving tops $900.

Financial incentives for businesses are even better. Based on their individual system costs, companies can claim a 10 percent Federal tax credit, a 35 percent state tax credit and a five-year accelerated depreciation schedule. These will slice about 60 percent of the initial price tag, considering these credits systems have a 6-year estimated payback. Currently the net metering law only allows for systems under 10 kilowatts. But Harley Davidson and Island Dodge in Kahului have installed 30 kW and 50 kW systems, respectively. They both have an interconnection agreement with MECO allowing customers to install larger systems and offset their energy consumption during the day, but they cannot spin their meter back. There is legislation to change that. State Bill 2048 proposes to allow net metered systems up to 50 kW. Legislative analysts say it’s like this bill will be adopted before the end of the year. Environmentally, the benefits of solar powered homes are

immediate and obvious. A small home system of just a couple kilowatts will eliminate two pounds of nitrogen and over 9,000 pounds of carbon dioxide each year, which is the same as not driving your car 11,000 miles. “Unfortunately, the PV utility is not a technology that prevents us here on the islands from needing to add generation capacity,” said MECO’s Eldred. “For example, in California it works much better. Their state peak is during the afternoon between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. That’s exactly when you get power from the sun, so there it allows building a replace generation. Here on Maui, with the hotels and visitor industry, our peak time is actually between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m., when there is no sun. This obviously doesn’t help us to generate solar power at our peak time, but it’s still great to help saving oil.” As for the Stotts, they’re serious about investing in a proper solarpowered automobile. They’re already dreaming of using it to take their children to school or to go sailing at Ho’okipa. MTW

Beer & Wine

While you’re mashing a lime wedge into your Corona or licking the salt off your Margarita’s rim this Cinco de Mayo, try to remember what the day’s festivities are all about. You can start by understanding that the fifth of May does not commemorate Mexico’s Independence Day. That’s Sept. 16, which we don’t seem to care about one bit. Instead, Cinco de Mayo is all about May 5, 1862, the day a not so mighty, not so disciplined force of 4,000 Indians routed 7,000 men of the far better equipped and drilled French army at Puebla, a city just south of Mexico City. You could try and remember all that. Or you could just go to Horhito’s in Kihei. Chef Jorge Galaviz knows all about the Battle of Puebla. He should— he was born there. “My great grandfather told me about the war,” Galaviz told me one recent evening while he was working behind the bar. As he spoke, I dug hungrily into a martini glass overflowing with some of his exquisitely pink, exquisitely delicate ceviche. “Soldiers stayed in his family’s house,” he said. “There were rivers of blood in the streets.” Galaviz remembers vividly how big a deal the day is for the people of Puebla, and how it differs from American commemoration. “The president of Mexico goes to Puebla City,” he said. “Airplanes fly overhead. All the schools go out and march. Here, it’s just ‘drink and party.’” Galaviz has been living on Maui for the last 11 years. He said he hasn’t been back to Mexico in four years. “It was hard to move here,” he said. “But there were hard times. My cousin was already here, and he asked me to come over.” He began as a dishwasher and barback at Hapa’s next door, then eventually ran the kitchen. He dreamed of running a place on his own, and jumped at the chance when Horhito’s opened. “I asked my mom for a couple recipes,” he said. “She always said ‘You have to learn how to cook, do the laundry,’ but I never did.” The chile rellenos, chile verde and chicken avocado soup all comes from his mother. Galaviz said everything is made from scratch, just like the old way. Still, there are limits to what he can import. He said he really misses Mole Poblano, a sauce you pour over chicken containing seven different peppers, sugar, sesame seeds and chocolate. “You can’t make it here,” he said. “You have to use giant ceramic pots. People

Jorge knows Cinco De Mayo who make it here, that’s not the real thing. If I ever made real menudo, no one here would eat it.” Then a waitress came by with a drink order. She noticed my notepad as Galaviz made chocolate milk for a little girl, streaking the inside of the glass with thick beads of syrup. “Are you going to be in the paper?” she asked. “I’m going to be in Playboy,” he joked. The waitress frowned. “No, you’re going to be in Playgirl,” she said. “That’s the one the women look at.” Galaviz thought for a moment. “Oh, yeah.” Horhito’s is located in the Lipoa Center in Kihei. It’s open Mon.-Sat., 5 p.m.-1 a.m. and Sun. 5 p.m.-10 a.m. Call 891-6394 for reservations. MTW

ARTS&ENTERTAINMENT

BY SAMANTHA CAMPOS

Music to Live By It often seems that jazz musicians are a little cooler, wiser, hipper than the rest of us. Recent scholarship indicates this is more than a mere illusion. A new study conducted by the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology determined the personality traits of people with particular musical preferences. The study showed that people who like jazz also tend to be open-minded, creative, intellectual and enjoy trying new experiences. Wisdom, diversity and fine arts are all important to them. In their free time after work, if they’re not listening to music or reading a book, they’re watching documentaries, independent, classic or foreign films. I mean, it’s just a study, but it could explain why you never meet a vibraphonist at a William F. Buckley read-along. Like most jazz musicians, local keyboardist Mark Johnston came from a musical family—his father was a jazz guitarist. But he also listened to popular rock bands like Santana and Steely Dan. He says he was heavily influenced by works of Art Tatum, Roy Hargrove, Carl Benson, the group Medeski, Martin and Wood, Soulive and other “groovy jam bands.” In his teens, Johnston decided to pick up guitar for the usual, obvious reasons. “To get chicks,” he said. He eventually went to the Berklee School of Music but says he really learned about jazz from the other students. “That’s really how jazz is,” said Johnston. “You learn more from the people you play with.” The band Johnston jams with frequently plays traditional jazz songs from artists like Herbie Hancock and Miles Davis. “Jazz standards enable players to get together and speak the same language,” he said. To Johnston, an accomplished musician of piano, guitar and saxophone, jazz means endless learning. “In jazz, they say you don’t ‘get it’ ‘til you’re 50,” he said. “I’ve still got 13 years!” Originally from Rhode Island, Johnston moved to Maui three years ago from Steamboat Springs, Colorado, where he snowboarded between jazz gigs at various clubs. Now an avid windsurfer, Johnston

feels that his decision to move to Maui was based on a conscious need to live life on a deeper level. He says it’s made him a better musician as well. “I play with world class musicians,” said Johnston, referring to the band he plays with Monday nights. “Roscoe, John—they can play anywhere, but they choose to play HERE!” The Monday night jazz band he jams with includes either Roscoe Wright or Paul Marchatti on drums, Dustin Hengel on trumpet, Justin Sadell on guitar, John Vangrando on saxophone, Derek Beaty on stand-up bass and Johnston on keyboards. “There are so many great musicians on this island,” Johnston said. “People like Gene Argel, Brian Cuomo, Mike Buono, Tom Cherry—I feel indebted to the people who came before me—to study and learn from them. That’s part of the jazz tradition, too.” Mark Johnston and his jazz band play every Monday night at the SandBar in Paia. You can also catch him as the featured solo pianist Thursday through Saturday nights at Capische in Wailea and Wednesday at Kapalua Bay Club. Every Tuesday, Mark leads a jazz jam with special guests at the Livewire Café in Paia and every other Thursday night with Dustin Hengel at Neptunes in Kihei. MTW

FILMCRITIQUE

BY COLE SMITHEY

Undue Process Less axiom, more homage

Fade to black...thank you Pitched as an homage to George Cukor’s 1949 classic romantic comedy Adam’s Rib (with Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy), Laws of Attraction is greatly separated from that film’s exceptional timing and sincere comic exploration of a competitive couple of married lawyers. Julianne Moore and Pierce Brosnan play two eligible high-profile New York divorce attorneys drawn together by mutual attraction and court cases. Where Hepburn and Tracy were an established married couple in Adam’s Rib, Moore and Brosnan must play a losing game of catchup in order to fall in love, get married, and still have a shot at longevity.

Laws of Attraction

★★★★★ It’s indicative of our time that the screenwriters couldn’t begin to fathom a couple of married lawyers without first explaining away the necessary undertaking of such a relationship. The divulged conflict resolution of Hepburn and Tracy as a committed couple is reduced to Moore and Brosnan trying to find a reason to be together in the first place. Audrey Woods (Moore) and Daniel Rafferty (Brosnan) are master manipulators in the courtroom, but only Daniel is well versed in the due diligence of keeping up a personal life beyond the courthouse steps. Daniel relies on the age-old tactic of showing up with a bedhead and wearing wrinkled clothes for preliminary court proceedings, before coming to the actual trial immaculately dressed and coifed. Audrey, on the other hand, takes the law literally and has a more clinical approach to her work with just a touch of self-defeating insecurity; she eats junk food to calm her nerves. But when Audrey finds herself unexpectedly on a date with her infuriatingly handsome opponent, she can’t resist instigating a drinking match that guaran-

tees he will get into her panties before sunrise. Unfortunately, Audrey never lets her hair down so far again in the movie as she fends off her feelings for Daniel as much as she keeps his sincere romantic overtures at bay. The modern “battle-of-the-sexes” that screenwriters Aline Brosh Mckenna and Robert Harling vaguely allude to, is couched as a contest of efficiency between a couple whose true feelings emerge mainly when they’re sauced. This wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing if the audience were allowed behind that veil of alcohol for a better understanding of how the couple connects romantically. Audrey and Daniel are representing opposite sides of a divorce case between adulterous rock star Thorne Jamisen (Michael Sheen— Underworld) and his spunky clothing designer wife, Serena (Parker Posey—A Mighty Wind), that takes them to Ireland to depose the staff of the castle that Serena and Thorne each want. This awkward vacation affords Daniel and Audrey an opportunity to drink and get ‘married’ at a bar where a reenactment of the marriage service between the castle’s original owners attracts sacred vows from our restless couple. But because the audience is left out of the ceremony, and the cherished moments leading up to it, we can only guess at the way Audrey was convinced to accept Daniel’s proposal. Apart from the script’s lack of funny set pieces, is a trumped up game of cat and mouse that Audrey and Daniel play in which he is the smitten pursuer and she is the unwilling dupe to her own weakness. Neither status adequately suits either actor, although both Brosnan and Moore soldier on in an easy fashion that is pleasing if not absorbing. Frances Fisher (Titanic) adds some calculated pizzazz to the movie as Sara, Audrey’s asyoung-as-she-wants-to-be mother, in a performance that will enchant the middle-aged female audience that the movie is geared towards. Laws of Attraction never shows us how such axioms are handled between two adoring competitors in a game of law and love where one person must be the chosen leader. Rated PG-13. 90 mins. MTW

May 1st is Lei Day in Hawaii, where everyone wears flowers, schools stage pageants, contests are held for the most beautiful lei, a Queen is crowned, hula competitions are held and local artists give song and dance performances. It all started when, in 1928, a poet and artist named Don Blanding noticed the abundance of flower lei being distributed to tourists at the piers on “Boat Day,” while locals were neglecting to adorn themselves. On May Day, he suggested the islanders resume wearing their own leis and flowers, as their ancestors did. It has since been made official and here on this island, celebrations are featured all weekend. On Saturday, “A Lei of Stars” includes Maui Concert Chorus, Youth Chorus, Uluwehi Guerrero and the performers of ‘Ulalena. On Sunday, the Brothers Cazimero will share their well-known contemporary Hawaiian acoustic stylings, along with hula dancers.

MEXICAN BEER SPECIALS! TEQUILA SPECIALS!

We say and hear the words all the time. Stylish. Trendy. Fashionable. But what do we really mean by them? What makes one skirt “fashionable” and another “hideous?” Does fashionable have to be expensive? And does fashion really matter anyway around here, where slippers and board shorts never seem to go out of style? In fact, Maui has a rich connection to the world of fashion. There are great designers right here—some big, some not so much—and they’re creating new, colorful, sexy stuff right now. So relax and enjoy our look at some of Maui’s most interesting designers. After all, it’s the fashionable thing to do.

TICKETS: $10 PRESALE $15 AT THE DOOR GET TICKETS EARLY TO MAKE SURE YOU GET IN!

Don’t be an ass Don’t drink & drive! Take the Shuttle!

ARIES: Like Halloween, April 30th—or Beltaine—is a time when the veil is thin and our ancestors try to reach us through subtle means of communication. Material concerns give way to a sensual priority. Couples can engage with each other just to make the ground fertile. TAURUS: All right, all you sensual Gods and Goddesses, your time to make love and to enhance your material surroundings is here. Get your hands on more people and less plates of food. Trust your subtle hunches. Pay attention to dreams. GEMINI: With Venus and Mars in your sign the pleasures of Beltaine are in your face. You have a Cheshire cat grin on your face that says, “I can do whatever I want.” Keep your attacks limited to air pollution and insect control. You have secrets you’re not telling. CANCER: Go out and mingle with the crowds. You need a people fix. The weekend will be mainly about family and home. The full moon on Tuesday gives you the opportunity to be more loving. I’ll grant you freedom from everything except erotic dreams. LEO: Get down to business but learn to add a little sweetness and excitement to the mix. Life without passion isn’t life. Be realistic about your subconscious limits. The full moon will strengthen ties with family as well as stir up old memories. VIRGO: Enter the world like a hunter, a pioneer or a researcher. Learn a few new Hawaiian words. Perhaps learn to play the guitar, slack key style. Limits no longer apply. You are in a super lucky place, especially on Thursday and Friday with the Virgo moon. LIBRA: In order to be balanced we need to give back from where we have taken. Sometimes we wish other people would give back what they’ve taken from us. You’re feeling hot yet emotional. Libras in long distance relationships need to start up a support group. SCORPIO: The full moon on the 4th will be in Scorpio. Passions and emotions can reach their highest highs or their lowest lows. The sensual meets the sexual and the material meets the spiritual. Beltaine offers you freespirited social encounters. SAGITTARIUS: You won’t get the moon in your sign until “Cinco De Mayo.” Until then enjoy being the great negotiator. Your work schedule starts out heavy. You may have to postpone Beltaine revelry until May Day. Keep exercising and participating in sports. CAPRICORN: Expect a more pleasant reality. Keep doing your crunches and knee exercises. Beltaine gives you the chance to enjoy the exotic and the unusual. You’re on a creative roll. Take control of your life. Be fearless in love. AQUARIUS: It’s deep within family that our vulnerable parts are known. Moving disturbs our set pattern of knowing. Greatness lies in the midnight hour with a great respect for past ancestors. The full moon gives you a chance to show off at work. PISCES: Get your Mother’s Day gift together now before you forget and it gets too late. Follow your poetic instinct. Beltaine could bring romance or partnerships. The full moon could provide the backdrop for an exotic getaway or a night studying for an exam.

HOLOHOLOGIRL

What’s the Deal with Relationships Anyway? Why is it so hard for most of us fools in love to get it right, while other people seemingly meet, marry and breed in a matter of seconds? Is it really just about timing? Certainly no union is perfect, but what is the cost of achieving romantic bliss? We want what we can’t have—when we’re in a relationship, we spend a lot of time complaining about it. And when we’re single, we spend our time looking to have one. But it leaves some of us wondering if we might have already had our time to love and be loved. Maybe that’s all you get. Two friends of mine had been dating each other for about, oh, five minutes. Their first date consisted of an intense two-hour long conversation at a dinner party, followed immediately by a weekend marathon of hot, steamy sex. They spent every night together after that, filling their days tormenting co-workers with their newfound happiness. Then a member of the duo got drunk. That meant there was bickering, way more frustrated phone calls than necessary and a sudden, inexplicable hostility towards those colorful little umbrellas you put in drinks. It was a case of too good, too much, too soon. And now, it is too over. The youngest of my close friends has not been in a relationship since the Clinton Administration. She is beautiful and smart, and is often sought out for social gatherings by her male and female friends, of which there is an endless amount. One recent non-boyfriend showered her with affection, then told her that he was scared of her and ran away. And when she finally did meet her cosmic equal, wild horses from his past did indeed drag him away. Yee haw, she says. And yet, another friend actually spent a great deal of time with a man whom she adored, doted on hand and foot, and who was a friend and supporter, constant and true. They spent every day together and every night in the same bed. If she didn’t call immediately, he would show up at her door. Finally, when she broached the possibility of expanding their friendship into maybe something a little more positionally missionary, he scoffed. “Why ruin the friendship?� he asked. I’m certainly not trying to bash men. One fabulous male friend I have told me of a recent relationship that surprisingly, ended badly. He is an attractive, funny, successful guy who was sought after by a few girls in town, but was looking for his perfect mate. When he finally met a girl he thought was worthy, she unfortunately lived far away. So he purchased an air pass and visited her regularly, even flew her out for trips whenever she could get the time off. Things went splendidly for about four months until one day his girlfriend-on-another-island told him she “needed space.� He hasn’t heard from her since. Another guy I know told me about this girl he was seeing who told him she wanted to “take things slow.� They saw each other about once a week, where he would cook her elaborate meals and they would talk for hours. He found her to be his intellectual and emotional soul mate. She agreed but said she “needed more time.� One night, when they happened to run into each other at a bar, she was drunk and making out with a guy she had just met. Their relationship ended shortly thereafter. A friend of mine from the city had a thing for musicians. Guitarists, singers, drummers, keyboardists—it didn’t matter. As long as they were on stage making noise, she was hooked. But she didn’t consider herself a groupie. “I’m an appreciator of the arts!� she said. After her last bass player boyfriend asked her to wear a facemask with his picture on it while they were having sex, she decided to break her pattern. “I’m into DJ’s now,� she said. Relationships are wasted on the people who are in them. MTW
