THE COUNTY OF MAUIIS MY SUNSHINE
One of the great things about the Coun-ty of Maui is that they dont discriminate against anyone willing to give them an award. Regardless of the organization, its funding or the fact that it doesnt really like government of any kind, if its willing to hand over an award that didnt exist fi ve years ago, the County of Maui is more than willing to accept it graciously.
Sunshine Review, a national non-profi t organization dedicated to govern-ment transparency, has released the win-ners of the 4th-annual Sunny Awards, and among the winners is the County of Maui, Council Chair Gladys C. Baisa announced today, stated a Mar. 14 news release from Baisas offi ce. The award honors the most transparent government websites in the nation.
According to the press release, the Edi-tors at Sunshine Review graded the top-ranked 1,000 government websites on items such as budgets, meetings, lobbying, fi nancial audits, contracts, academic perfor-mance, public records and taxes. The press release notes that Sunshine Review Presi-dent Michael Barnhart recognized Maui County for being a champion for transpar-ency and serving as a leader to every state and local government around the nation.
Mere minutes after Baisas press release went out, Maui Now (as theyre wont to do) published a blog post on the countys triumph. The Maui News followed suit with a community news blurb in their Mar. 17 paper. What neither news source did was provide any sort of context on Sun-shine Reviewbeyond the couple sentences saying that the nonprofi t analyzes state and local government websites.
According to Sunshine Reviews own website (sunshinereview.org), Sunshine Review originated as a project of the Sam Adams Alliance (SAM) [named for the
American Revolutionary founder, not the Boston lager], but in 2010 separated from SAM and relaunched as its own organiza-tion dedicated to educating the public about proactive disclosure and other open government initiatives. The Sam Adams Alliance is a strongly libertarian organiza-tion that, according to its website, strives to educate and inform citizens about the important political issues necessary to maintaining a free society, including gov-ernment accountability, government trans-parency, property rights protection, fi scal responsibility, free speech, and citizen ini-tiative and referendum rights.
According to SourceWatch, Barn-hart and Sunshine Review are also pretty tight with the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). Theyre a corporate bill mill that Sourcewatch says takes money from corporations in ex-change for writing and lobbying for legis-lation that would serve corporate interests.
And then theres the fact that even though Sunshine Review preaches the gos-pel of transparency, they keep the names of their own donors a tightly guarded secret. Like many non-profi ts and as a 501(c)(3) organization, Sunshine Review
respects the wishes of its donors to keep their identities confi dential, states the Sunshine Review website.
Given that, SourceWatchciting IRS fi lingsreported that Sunshine Review has received hundreds of thousands of dollars from all manner of anti-government foun-dations and think tanks.
In 2010, the Sunshine Review received over $560,000 from the conservative Sam Adams Alliance (SAM), according to SAMs IRS tax fi lings, reported SourceWatch. Of its $3.9 million budget, SAM also pro-vides funding to groups such as the Tea Party Patriots Foundation, the First Freedom Foundation, and the Citizens in Charge Foundation. SAM gets fund-ing from the State Policy Network (SPN) which is partially funded by The Claude R. Lambe Foundation, a project of Charles Koch who co-owns Koch In-dustries with his brother David.
I fi gured the Koch brothers, who donated $411,000 to Republicans across the country during the 2012 election (their organiza-tion Americans for Prosperity spent millions more attempting to defeat Presi-dent Barack Obamas reelection effort), according to the Center for Responsive Politics, would come into this sooner or later. Ask any politically inclined Democrat in the nation about the Koch brothers, and youll fi nd theyre somewhere between Rasputin and Eddie Haskell on the Great Spectrum of Universal Evil.
But pleaselets not allow any of that to darken the County of Mauis day in the sun.
HC&S STARTING TO LIGHT FIRES AGAIN
Good news everyone! Its mid-March, and that means Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar (HC&S) will start burning sugar cane in the fi elds again! I know this be-cause a few days ago I received a letter that started out like all love letters from those who truly care about me.
Dear Neighbor, the Mar. 11 letter from HC&S General Manager Rick W. Volner, Jr. started. The purpose of this letter is to once again advise our neighbors of the start of HC&S harvesting season.
This is big not only because HC&S meth-od of harvesting cane involves burning it in the fi elds, which produces thick smoke that seems to bother a sizeable portion of the islands population, but because the compa-ny employs 800 people. Did you get that? HC&S has 800 employees. Volner seems sensitive to this, because he mentioned it three times in his single-page letter:
On March 12, the Puunene mill re-turns to life [and] our 800 workers return to harvesting and processing sugarcane on our 36,000 acres...
With all of these accomplishments, I am still most proud of our 800 employees...
We are determined to keep the cen-tral valley of Maui green and our family of 800 workers employed...
See? Who are you to question the ac-tions of an organization that employs 800 people? But fear not, ye who fi nd yourselves choking on the mornings of cane-burns: Volner and his army of 800 feel your pain.
We pledge to communicate more with you about our agricultural operations, harvesting and, especially, the schedule for sugar cane burning in your area, Volner wrote. Our hope is that more advance information from us will help minimize the impacts on you.
You know, to give you time to grab your family and fl ee like refugees to Hana or Oahu or maybe just jump into a canoe and paddle out to sea until the skies clear in November. See, HC&S listened to you. Theyre going to keep right on burning cane in the fi elds, be-cause apparently thats they way it was always done, but they do listen to you.

FREE WIFI COMINGTO WAILUKU?
Maui resident Yuki Lei Sugimura wants to bring Wailuku into the 21st century with WiFi Wailuku, a plan to provide free wireless internet access to the Wailuku Town. The program, which has been discussed at various Maui Redevelopment Agency meetings over the last few months, would put Wailuku on the growing list of towns in the U.S. offering wireless Internet as a service to the public. Currently Ho-nolulus Chinatown is the only area in the state offering municipal WiFi.
Were modeled after Chinatown, Sugimura told me, referring to the node strategy used to partner the WiFi project with local businesses. Essen-tially, all community businesses need to do is place a router provided by the WiFi project in their place of opera-tion, and the router will automatically connect to the grid of other routers to maximize wireless coverage.
Our goal is to bring people to Wai-luku Town, she added.
Currently, WiFi Wailuku is gauging interest and support from the commu-nity. There is just one point in the WiFi grid so far, and thats at Kamaaina Properties on the corner of Market and Main Streets, but the aim is to set up a network of 20 participating busi-nesses surrounding Wailukus Municipal Lot and Main Street to give the whole area free wireless Internet access.
Sugimura recently applied for a County of Maui Small Town Grant to help fund WiFi Wailuku, and is in need of local businesses and com-munity members willing to partici-pate. Interested business owners and citizens should contact her at [email protected]
KEEP THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS BEAUTIFUL
GETS AWARDThe largest anti-litter nonprofi t in the
nation, Keep America Beautiful, re-cently honored Keep The Hawaiian Is-lands Beautiful as an exemplary affi liate organization, according to a Mar. 18 press release from Jan Dapitan, the Hawaii organizations state leader.
Keep the Hawaiian Islands Beautiful received a Keep America Beautiful (KAB) Gold State Recognition Award during KABs recent 60th anniversary National Confer-ence in Washington, D.C., distinguishing itself as an exemplary statewide affi liate or-ganization, stated the news release. Keep the Hawaiian Islands Beautiful was honored for its outstanding promotion of KABs mis-sion statewide and for its program support for local affi liates in Hawaii.
According to the news release, KAB re-ally liked such Keep The Hawaiian Islands Beautiful programs as its National Plant-ing Day at Kanaha and its involvement in the 2012 Great American Clean-up, which combined 6 local affi liates state-wide for 5 months, resulting in over 39,819 Volunteers, and 101 events.
Keep America Beautifuls State Recogni-tion Awards recognizes our state affi liates that produce creative and resourceful program-ming for their citizens, said Matt McKenna, president and CEO of Keep America Beautiful, in the news release. Its my privilege to rec-ognize Keep the Hawaiian Islands Beautiful and State Leader Jan Dapitan and the Board of Directors for the tremendous leadership they exhibited in their state during 2012.
The nonprofi t organization Keep Amer-ica Beautiful formed decades ago as a kind of corporate response to urban beautifi ca-tion. KABs most famous anti-littering ad campaign debuted in the early 1970s and featured Iron Eyes Cody in the so-called crying Indian TV spot.
Long before being green was fashionable,
Keep America Beautiful formed in 1953 when a group of corporate and civic leaders met in New York City to discuss a revolutionary idea bringing the public and private sectors together to develop and promote a national cleanliness ethic, states KABs website.
To be fair, KABs critics point out that the organizations biggest supporters are major corporations like Pepsico, Altria Group, Waste Management, Dow Chemi-cal, LG Electronics and the American Chemistry Council. These corporations and trade organizations often fi nd them-selves at odds with environmentalists. For instance, the American Chemistry Council has long opposed municipal plastic bag bans, even though such bans eliminate the sources of huge quantities of litter.
MAUI COUNTY FARM BUREAU TEACHES KIDS
ABOUT AGNot very many kids these days aspire to be
farmers. The job has a bad rap (were thinking the hours, the debt, the smell...) but Maui
County Farm Bureau (MCBF) has taken up the good fi ght to bring agriculture education to elementary schools around Maui. Consider-ing that the Farm Bureau says the average age of a farmer on Maui is 60, this is a good thing. Their Agriculture in the Classroom pro-gram reached 1,500 second grade students at 15 different elementary schools in the county from August 2012 to last February.
About a thousand of those students took a fi eld trip to Maui Tropical Plantation Mar. 7-8. There they got fi rsthand looks into the agriculture industry. They met Maui farm-ers and watched a variety of presentations from the community.
The College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources presented Canoe Crops; Maui Electric Company present-ed Daily Nutrition; even Monsanto Ha-waii got into the act with their Parts of a Plant. Alii Kula Lavender Farm showed the kids Planting a Lavender Sprig while Coconut Willie offered them Amaz-ing Coconuts. And, of course, Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar taught Seed to Seed. Then the kids took the plantation tram tour and SoMoor demonstrated the concept of Value-added Agriculture.
The program started in 2006. For young children, MCFB aims their education pro-grams on building awareness of where our food comes from: not a bag or a can, but from things grown by seeds. At the high school and college level they focus on career opportunities like environmental stewardship, ag economics, plant and ani-mal sciences and human nutrition.
Any school can participatecharter, pub-lic, or private. The next installation begins in August. For more information, visit mauicountyfarmbureau.org.

DOPING ON ICELeaders of the ice-fi shing community,
aiming for offi cial Olympics recognition as a sport, have begun the process by ask-ing the World Anti-Doping Agency to ran-domly test its athletes for performance-enhancing drugs, according to a February New York Times report. However, said the chairman of the U.S. Freshwater Fishing Association, We do not test for beer, because, he added, Everyone would fail. Ice-fi shing is a lonely, frigid endeavor rare-ly employing strength but mostly requir-ing guile and strategy, as competitors who discover advantageous spots in the lake must surreptitiously upload the hauls lest competitors rush over to drill their own holes. Urine tests have also been run in recent years on competitors in darts, min-iature golf, chess and tug-of-war, and in 2011, one chess player, two mini-golfers and one tugger tested positive.
CULTURAL DIVERSITYA frequent sight on Soweto, South Af-
rica, streets recently is crowds of 12-to-15-year-old boys known as izikhotane (boasters) who hang out in their designer jeans, shimmering silk shirts, bright pink and blue shoes, and white-straw, narrow-brimmed fedoras, accord-ing to a February BBC News dispatch. Flashing wads of cash begged from be-leaguered parents, hundreds may amass, playing loud music and sometimes even trashing their fancy clothes as if to feign an indifference to wealth. Since many izikhotanes families are working-class survivors of apartheid, they are mostly ashamed of their kids behavior. This isnt what we struggled for, lamented one parent. But, protested a peer-pres-sured boaster, [Y]ou must dress like this, even if you live in a shack.
TEETH LIFTING!Indias annual Rural Olympics might
be the cultural equivalent of several South-ern U.S. Redneck Olympics but taken somewhat more seriously, in that this year, corporate sponsorships (Nokia and Su-zuki) helped fund the equivalent of about $66,000 in prize money for such events as competitive pulling using only ones ears or teeth. We do this for money, trophies, fame and respect, one ear-puller told The Wall Street Journal in February. This year, in the four-day event in Punjab state, the 50,000 spectators could watch a teeth-lifter pull a 110-pound sack upward for about eight seconds and an ear-puller ease a car about 15 feet.
WEIRD JAPANA generous local businessman recently
graced the city of Okuizumo with fund-ing for replicas of two Renaissance statues (Venus de Milo and Michelangelos David) for a public park. Agence France-Presse reported in February that many
residents, receiving little advance warn-ing, expressed shock at the unveiling of David and demanded that he at least be given underpants. And fax machines, almost obsolete in the U.S., are still central to many tech-savvy Japanese families and companies (who bought 1.7 million units last year alone), reported The New York Times in February. Families prefer faxes superiority to e-mail for warmly express-ing Japans complex written language, and bureaucrats favor faxes preserving the imperative of paper fl ow.
LATEST RELIGIOUS MESSAGES
The 14 guests at a jewelry party in Lake City, Fla., were initially incredulous that home-invader Derek Lee, 24, meant to rob them, but when they saw that he was serious (by putting his gun to the head of one woman), the hostess went into ac-tion. In the name of Jesus, she shouted, get out of my house now! Then the guests chanted in unison, Jesus! Jesus! Jesus! over and over. Lee, frightened or bewildered, sprinted out the door empty-handed and was later arrested.
YET ANOTHER FATWASaudi cleric Sheikh Abdullah Daoud, in
an interview in February on al-Majd TV, decreed that female babies should wear full-face veils (burkas) to help shield them from sexual advances. According to a for-mer judge at the Saudi Board of Grievances, Saudi authorities have issued standards for fatwas, thus urging people to ignore un-regulated ones such as Skeikh Daouds.
LITIGATION WARSIn 2011, Julian Pellegrino pleaded
guilty to DUI involving serious bodily injury to Mark Costa in Chicopee, Mass., and was sentenced to serve 18 months in jail, but that did not deter Pellegrino from fi ling a lawsuit in December, de-manding $1.1 million for Costas some-how caus[ing] his car to collide with Pellegrinos. Pellegrino (with a broken neck) was actually more seriously injured than Costa, who sued back, asking nearly $200,000. In 2010, while Pellegrino was awaiting disposition of the case with Cos-ta, he pleaded guilty to another DUI.
FETISHES ON PARADEPaul Jamrozik, 63, was arrested in Upper
Darby, Pa., in January and charged as the man who lured a 12-year-old boy into his home and, under the guise of pretend-podi-atry, spritzed his feet with athletes-foot spray and tickled them before performing an exam of his ears and nose with medical equip-ment. When the kid asked to leave, according to the police report, Jamrozik withheld his shoes until he promised to bring his friends by the next day to be examined.

So I nally got a day off with my two kids and had the time to take them on a whale watch. Its bad enough that almost everything we get from TV is mainland violence. Here, I thought, was a chance to do something peaceful with my kids. Nope! When we got to the harbor, we saw you beating up a kid half your size on the dock next to the boat we were considering boarding. Wow dude, think about how happy the people around you might be before you subject them to your violence! I asked around and found out you actually work in that harbor and the kid you were beating up worked with you. Helluva crew member you seem to be.

I ts about noon, and a light rain is tapping the corrugated metal sheet above my head. The skies are dark gray, but the land is still serene and beautiful. Im in Kanaio, sitting at wooden bench next to some bleached livestock skulls and
a pen holding a pet, a very large black pig named Mamani. The place is Bullys Burgers, located on the Triple L Ranch and named for the ranchs late owner Louis Bully De Ponte, and Ive just de-voured one of their six-ounce, 100 per-cent natural grass-fed burgers (disclo-
sure: Bullys is a MauiTime advertiser). Even as remote as this place is, there
was a time when the little roadside burg-er stand was booming. Then Sempra U.S. Gas & Power and BP Wind Energy started hauling wind turbine parts through Kanaio to Kahikinui, a few miles down
the road. That required intermittent road closures, which devastated Bullys Burgers. The eight-turbine, 21 megawatt (MW) wind farm offi cially came online last month, and Bullys is only now re-covering some of its lost business.

WHERE THE WIND
BLOWSSempra just completed eight wind turbines in Kahikinui. Now theyre talking about adding 39 more, to help power Oahu.
By Anthony Pignataro
11MARCH 21, 2013
February, federal, state and local of-ficials cheered the wind farm as the fu-ture of power generation. Were always talking about sustainability and being independent, Hawaii Lt. Gov. Tsutsui said, according to a Feb. 25 post from PR Newswire. This goes hand in hand with a lot of our initiatives. Its definite-ly a step in the right direction and we look much forward to other projects.
But when I asked current Bullys owner Paige De Ponte about that wind farm, and the possibility that Sempra may expand the operation, she was quiet. She refused to say anything bad about Sempra or the road closures that hurt her business (De Ponte did say that Sem-pra compensated her for losses she in-curred). But she also expressed great love for the land that surrounds her ranch.
Sustainable development is always a positive thing, De Ponte told me by phone (her son Zach and daughter Mau-rissa run the burger stand). But where were at, this is truly Mauis last frontier. My husband died and I was left with a lot of land. I consider myself a caretaker for our future generations. I have strong feel-ings about that. They did make good with us, but its kind of like The Descendants. Once that land is gone, its gone.
In fact, Sempra is proposing a consid-erable expansion of their Auwahi wind facility, according to a two-page compa-ny fact sheet obtained by MauiTime. The fact sheet, dated February 2013, states that the company wishes to build nearly 40 more turbines on 100-200 acres.
But theres a catch. The expansion, according to the fact sheet, would only happen if the proposed undersea power cable between Oahu and Maui goes in. Thats because the Sempra fact sheet makes clear that their new wind farms 120 megawatts of renewable energy would all go to Oahu.
The 120MW project will entail the installation of approximately 39 wind turbines, based on a generation capacity of approximately 3 MW per turbine, states the fact sheet. Support infrastruc-ture includes required access roads, wind turbine assembly area, overhead and underground transmission and collector
lines, potentially an AC/DC converter sta-tion on Maui, an on-site substation, an expanded MECO substation, and opera-tions and maintenance facilities.
The proposal appears consistent with a recent call from the state Department of Hawaiian Homelands (DHHL) for proj-
ects that would generate more renewable energy on Maui. On Mar. 13, the DHHL posted a public notice titled Proposed Disposition Of Hawaiian Homelands For Renewable Energy Projects. According to the notice, the public was invited to comment at DHHL hearings in Wai-luku Mar. 20-21 on renewable energy projects on Hawaiian home lands at Kahikinui, Pulehunui, and Honokowai (the hearings took place after MauiTime went to press this week).
The fact sheet does not mention a projected cost for the proposal. Art Larson, a spokesperson for Sempra, con-firmed the details in the fact sheet, but said he did not have a cost estimate.
Larson added that Sempras proposal was a direct response to DHHLs call for renewable energy proposals for Maui. We are one of about 50 respon-dents, Larson said.
An offi cial with DHHL did not respond to a request for comment by press time.
According to the fact sheet, the devel-opment timeline depends on when state officials release a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the undersea cable. In any case, the fact sheet states that new fed-eral Renewable Fuel Standards coming online over the next decade and a half
impose a deadline on the project.A commercial operation date of De-
cember 31, 2019 is anticipated due to the 2020 RFS [Renewable Fuel Standards] requirements for the state of Hawaii, and Oahu in particular, states the fact sheet.
Doug McLeod, the County of Mauis Energy Commissioner, said he was fa-miliar with Sempras proposal.
Its far too large for Mauis needs, said McLeod. Maui today is 30 percent renewable. This is one of a number of likely proposals that would go in if theres a cable to Oahu. Sempras plan only comes into effect if the cable goes in.
The Sempra fact sheet does list a cou-ple positive effects for Maui, should the company expand the Auwahi wind farm. Once construction is complete on the Auwahi Wind Farm Expansion, water will be provided to the local Kahikinui community, states the fact sheet, though how much water is left unsaid.
The fact sheet also mentioned that even though the projects 120 MW would get sent to Oahu, it still might lower electric rates on Maui. Exporting the wind power from the Auwahi Wind Farm Expansion to Oahu provides the unique opportunity to potentially lower Mauis electric rates, states the fact sheet. Both the Oahu and Maui electric
grids would become much more stable, as the undersea cable would be bi-directional. Old, inefficient and highly polluting generating facilities on Maui and Oahu could be utilized only on an as-needed basis.
When asked about the effect of the wind farm expansion on Maui con-sumer electric rates, McLeod wasnt so sure there would be much of a positive effect for this island. It wont raise Oahus rates, McLeod said. It would give Maui the same rates as Oahu. But today, the difference between the [two islands] rates isnt what it used to be.
As for when that cable might go in, McLeod said that no one really knows. In the summer of 2011, the state Public Utilities Commission (PUC) directed Hawaiian Electric Co. (HECO) to sub-mit a draft RFP for at least 200 MW of renewable energy using any available technology generated on or for delivery to the island of Oahu. On Oct. 14, 2011, HECO posted that RFP, which carried the catchy title Draft Request for Proposals for Renewable Energy and Undersea Cable System Projects Deliv-ered to the Island of Oahu.
After HECO received, according to a rundown of the RFP history on their website, a voluminous number of comments from the public, the util-ity made extensive revisions. Though HECO was supposed to release the final RFP on the undersea cable last summer, it now says it should come out some-time in the second quarter of 2013.
According to McLeod, the cable is still a long way from approval. First, he said, two separate Environmental Impact Statements are required, including one for the route the cable would take.
The main issue is whether the route goes through the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary, said McLeod. That may make it impossible.
After that, the state PUC would also have to approve the cable.
Theres no reason for people to get super excited today, said McLeod. Its just being floated as a proposal. Sempra may not even submit it formally. The reality is there are going to be lots of things proposed if theres a cable.

I consider myself a caretaker for our future generations. I have
strong feelings about that. They did make good with us, but its kind of like The Descendants.
Once that land is gone, its gone.
The proposed Sempra wind farm will dwarf this, the current Kaheawa wind farm in Maalaea.

I baked my first cookie when I was 10. By the time I was in high school I was making choux pas-try and eclairs just for shits and giggles while my sisters and I stayed up late watching whatever came on the 12 TV channels that were available back then. Ive been making my grandmoth-ers banana bread so long its second nature. To me, baking has been comfort, entertainment and wonder. Im still amazed at the chemistry of combina-tions that fulfill crust and crumb of all my favorite recipes.
But these days, were always read-ing about how a pound of butter in a dozen cookies will risk heart attack and sugar can send you to the hospital. Wheat allergies are rampant, and dairy and meat should be avoided. Whats a hobby baker to do?
I threw in the towel for about a year. But I missed the kitchen alchemy of mixing powders and liquids that transformed into glorious baked beauties in my ovens dark heat. So I decided to take up gluten-free and vegan baking, but I wasnt sure where to start. After cracking open a gluten-free baking book I got from an aunt, I realized I needed to learn a whole new vocabulary of ingredients and restock my pantry.
I went down to Hawaiian Moons and picked up a bag of xanthan gum and Bobs Red Mill Gluten Free Flour. I no-ticed a chocolate chip cookie recipe by the famous BabyCakes Bakery NYC on the back of the packaging, so Googled them on my iPhone. Ten minutes later their brand new app (launched around December 2012) was on my phone.
I had never used a recipe or cooking app before, beyond searching online for recipes. But the app was defi nitely a dif-ferent experience. With two books under her belt, Bakery founder Erin McKenna says shes a visual learner. [My app is] a bake-through of much of my fi rst two books, a televisual cheatsheet for vegan and gluten-free baking, an indulgent and beautiful art project, she said. It is BabyCakes NYC without the subway ride or the parking ticket.
You can tell McKenna has a very dis-tinct aesthetic, her app is very artsy, every recipe has its own logo on the home screen, and the app has a custom soundtrack by the Bubbles, J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr, Bleached and Cults. It also uses a new platform called Atavist to tell its story of vegan baking.
McKenna is a self-taught baker and now runs the super popular Babycakes
Bakery in New York and LA. At first I was almost turned off by her celeb fol-lowing and hipster vibe, but it was her baking that brought me back.
Grasping my iPhone while donning reading glasses and lining up strange flours and unfamiliar ingredients in my kitchen, I looked over my first Babycakes app recipe: the brownie. Of course, its easy to loose the iPhone among your baking pans and potato starch. Also, trying to reload your recipe after your phone screensaver turns on every two minutes is a pain, but the app makes it up to you with videos.
You have your very own season of allergy-free baking with Erin Mckenna of BabyCakes Bakery on the phonenot even Food Network has that. There are sections on the ingredients, celebrity appearances and other chefs like Momo-fuku/Milk Bars Christina Tosi and Del Postos Brooks Headley.
So far, Ive made the brownies, choco-
late chip cookies and a banana chocolate chip teacake. Each one came out spec-tacularly. Ive been bringing baked goods to the offi ce for years, and I know when something isnt good: it gets left in the break room all day, untouched, forcing me to bring it home.
But these goodies disappeared as fast, if not more, than ones boasting dairy and wheat, even after and I gave full disclosure of their contents. Sure, there was initial surprise. But questions like What, these dont have any butter or sugar? soon gave way to comments like These are fudgey bites from heaven. Gobbling chocolate cookies, my edi-tor said, These are delicious but they could use more gluten to hold them together. Another office mate asked me what was holding them together.
To be honest, I have no idea. I just moved on to the cupcake recipes and then to donuts. Each recipe is so com-pletely different. Many use different
flours, some have organic unprocessed sugar, some use agave, but all have been moist and so good you wonder why anyone would use wheat and dairy in baking in the first place.
The BabyCakes app will run you $4 but you get how-to videos for everything you make, as well as social sharing, FAQs, McK-enna style points (she makes baking and eating cupcakes while being visibly preg-nant look so hip) and a soundtrack. Its the same price for the iPad version, which comes with a slightly better interface.
What the app is missing is a page dedicated to their Tumblr blog, which is updated regularly and a source of inspi-ration for me. Instead, it has a link to a fake app blog that only has one post dat-ing back to December 2012.
Getting BabyCakes baking on your reading device like Kindle or Nook will run you about $13 but you will miss out on the videos. Instead, fi nd Babycakes on YouTube. McKenna has videos of her
mom making her recipes, eager reporters following her around her bakery while she bakes and plenty of other videos.
Still like the feel of an old fashioned cookbook in the kitchen? Go to Barnes & Noble in Lahaina and spend $25 for her beautiful hard cover editions. Youll still get lots of tips on gluten-free bak-ing, and the ingredient info chapter is very thorough. Though youre miss-ing the videos and music, you will get more pictures and recipes plus classic advice from McKenna.Always use proper measuring spoons, she says in one of her books. The tea-spoons and tablespoons in your silver-ware drawer wont cut it, and eyeballed or otherwise touch measurements will result in baked goods so terrible and ugly I dont even want to discuss it.

The husband wife duo of Robin and Linda Williams is proof that you can suc-cessfully mix business with pleasure. For the past four decades, the duo has found fame in broadcasting, recording and touring.
Much of their fame comes from their in-volvement in the public radio show A Prairie Home Companion. Blending folk, country, bluegrass and gospel, the Williams have toured with the band Their Fine Group and sang for independent label Red House Records. True to their Southern roots as well as their great harmony, theyve appeared at the Grand Ole Opry and Radio City Music Hall.
Now approaching their 40th year as a duo, they provided us a behind-the-scenes peak into their lives
MAUITIME: How do you keep your pro-fessional and personal relationship intact?
ROBIN & LINDA: Mutual respect and similar interests. As Bruce Springsteen said in a song, We like the same music, we like the same cars, we like the same clothes. And were rarely out of each others sight long enough to get into trouble.
MT: Your roots are in bluegrass, folk, old-time and acoustic country. How do you think most people think of that music?
R&L: That its a music of the past. That its a simple music and easy to play. Anyone who doesnt think Bill Monroe and the Carter family and Doc Watson were not incredible innovators and bril-liant musicians have not taken the time to really understand the genre.
MT: Then again, country music has been revered for its heartfelt lyrics and melodic tones.
R&L: Well thats true. It started out as a music of the people and our ca-reer has been spent trying to play music and write songs that ring true to the struggles and rewards that life brings to us all.
MT: Your music has been described as Ameri-cana. How have you been able to stay true to your roots?
R&L: We just finished recording our 24th CD in which we took a look at our extensive cata-logue of songs going back 40 years. And in doing so, weve realized
that we have always just done what we do. And thats the beauty of the term Americanait gives a label to folks like us who dont exactly fit into a par-ticular niche. Weve always been sing-ers and songwriters whose bluegrass, old time country and folk music roots show in our music.
MT: With each successive album, how do you deal with the pressure of having to outdo yourselves?
R&L: We just try to have fun recording, to play with the best musicians, engineer, and producer we can assemble with the time and money allotted. With that being said, preparation is the key.
MT: Now your newest album is ti-tled These Old Dark Hills. Whered you
get the title?R&L: We live in the Shenandoah Val-
ley of Virginia, overlooking the Allegheny mountains. They are with us everyday and have become like old friends that we are always glad to see.
MT: Nice. Now, radio played a major role in your early careers. What do you think of it today?
R&L: Radio is and always has been important. Our music is less available on commercial radio, but with Pandora, Siri-us/XM, and streaming, it seems that music is more available now than ever before.
MT: Whats your advice to a new gen-eration of musicians?
R&L: Do good, live shows, focus on the music and dont give up.
MT: What are your musical infl uences?R&L: Hank Williams, the Stanley
brothers, Doc Watson, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn, Townes van Zandt, Bill Monroe, the Carter family and many more.
MT: What would you say is the message of your music?
R&L: That nothing stays the same; that life, and consequently, our music will al-ways be changing and that were always trying to keep it honest.
MT: In three words or less, please de-scribe your musical career.
R&L: Living the dream.

AdmissionIts a decent college comedy, but its no Animal House
Admission Rated PG-13 / 117 Min. T ina Fey stars as Portia, a Princeton admissions adviser whose career pro-vides her with a cozy, iso-lated life of academia and independence. She fi nds herself drawn to a young man named Jeremiah (played by Nat Wolff) whose brilliance make him a worthy Princeton candidate. Then Jeremiahs teacher from a nearby school (Paul Rudd) offers a bombshell revelation: Jeremiah is actu-ally Portias son. Suddenly, Portias pro-fessional ethics and guarded demeanor are challenged by the need to become a presence in Jeremiahs life, even as he has no idea why Portia is suddenly be-ing so nice to him.
This is Feys fi rst starring role in a fi lm since her acclaimed 30 Rock recently ended and she starred in the mediocre
Baby Mama. While Admission is a better fi lm than her last vehicle, it aims to dis-sect college hypocrisy and institutional snobbery in the same manner that Feys terrifi c Mean Girls put a microscope to the high school experience.
Mean Girls was one of the best fi lms of its year and has become a classic, which wont happen to the mild Admission. While aiming to be a cutting expose of snooty academic elitism and its gatekeep-ers, it winds up being as soft, sweet and forgettable as the Dennis Quaid/Ellen Page comedy Smart People.
Feys performance is something special, as she has some tough dramatic scenes to pull off and succeeds beautifully. Never pushing too hard with the comic or seri-ous moments, Fey once again affi rms her strengths as a down to earth and fetching comic talent. She has a nice chemistry with Rudd, even though his role isnt as prominent as youd hope.
Rudds role, like everyone elses, is more of a caricature. While it doesnt sal-vage the movie completely, everyone in the supporting cast is very good at giving
life to their half-baked parts. There are fi ne character turns by Wallace Shawn, Gloria Reuben, Michael Sheen, Lily Tom-lin (especially great at beefi ng up a corny character) and Wolff, whos terrifi c in a breakout role.
None of the subplots, including the Fey/Rudd romance, the troubled mother/daughter relationship or the are-you-my-son angle, lead to outcomes with any dramatic impact. While smarter than a typical romantic comedy, the movie could have been funnier. The king of this type of movie remains Wonder Boys, the 2000 Michael Douglas comedy about campus life and the academic oddballs who are brilliant but self destructive. Whereas that
fi lm was hilarious, biting and rewarding, Admission feels neutered.
An odd problem is the editing, which tightens each scene to the point of char-acters not seeming to have a moment to take a breath. If director Paul Weitz was hoping for the kind of fast-paced give and take of His Girl Friday, he forgot to let it feel spontaneous.
Weitzs recent fi lms include About a Boy and In Good Company, superb comedies that dug deep into the lives of guarded adults. He, as well as Fey and Rudd, will bounce back from this mis-step, which is too timid and lightweight to probe college hypocrisies. Ill take Ani-mal House any day over this.
