DeJongh Announces Deal for St. John School Land


By Andrea Milam
St. John Tradewinds
The Julius E. Sprauve School
is one step closer to moving out
of Cruz Bay thanks to a deal an-
nounced last week by Governor
John deJongh, which calls for
swapping the approximately 115
acres of privately owned land in
Estate Grange on St. Croix where
Alexander Hamilton lived for the
55-acre Ethel May Bishop proper-
ty in Estate Catherineberg, which
was deeded to the VI. National
Park upon Bishop's death in 1968.
Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah has
submitted legislation to allow the
National Park Service, in partner-
ship with the VI. government, to
acquire the Estate Grange land,
which is privately owned by the
Armstrong Trust. The land will
likely become a national park com-
memorating Hamilton. The Arm-
strong Trust has already executed
a short-term lease with the V.I.
Farmers Cooperative for approxi-
mately 30 to 40 acres of the Estate
Grange property to provide for the
island's agricultural industry.
The Trust for Public Land, which
purchased the 420-acre inholding
Estate Maho Bay for preservation
in September 2007, will assist the
government's purchase of the Es-
tate Grange property, and is a "key


partner" in the process, according
to the governor.
Support From Rockefeller
DeJongh's proposal is also sup-
ported by West Virginia Senator
Jay Rockefeller nephew of
Laurance Rockefeller, one of the
major players in the establishment
of the V.I. National Park who
toured the Julius E. Sprauve
School (JESS) campus with the
governor on Wednesday, May 28.
Rockefeller admitted that touring
the school's campus and announc-
ing a resolution for the many stu-
dents who must travel daily by
ferry to St. Thomas to attend high
school was the second happiest
day of his life.
"When I learned about the con-
cept of kids getting on the boat to
go to school, it hurt me so much,"
said Rockefeller. "We don't do that
to children. That's not what educa-
tion is about."
"This is the most perfect win-
win solution imaginable," Rock-
efeller said of deJongh's proposal.
"The most important thing is that
children won't be getting on that
ferry. They'll get their schooling
right here on St. John."
Laurance Rockefeller did not
intend for the people of St. John
to face hardship as a result of the
establishment of the VINP, his


nephew explained.
"He said, 'I want to preserve the
beauty, but I do not want for the
lives of the people who live here to
be disturbed,'" said Rockefeller. "I
know he's saying that the children
of this island should go to school
on this island."
DeJongh announced at the
school tour and press briefing that
the V.I. government was awarded
$200,000 by Secretary of the Inte-
rior Dirk Kempthore on May 27
for a feasibility study of the Estate
Catherineberg property to deter-
mine if the parcel is suitable for
the construction of a new school.
VINP Superintendent Mark
Hardgrove believes about 10 acres
of the Bishop property will be
useable for the construction of a
school, he explained at the brief-
ing. The rest of the property is
dotted with cultural resources, ac-
cording to Hardgrove.
HR 53 Floundering in Senate
St. John residents have long
wrangled with the issue of moving
JESS out of Cruz Bay, which has
become too dangerous and con-
gested for the school's more than
200 kindergarten through ninth
grade students. Several solutions
have been proposed, including
swapping V.I. government-owned

St. John Community Crisis Center Reaches Agreement with Former Exec. Director


By Andrea Milam
St. John Tradewinds
The St. John Community Cri-
sis Center, formerly known as
the Safety Zone, has reached an
agreement with former execu-
tive director Dr. Iris Kern, who
sued the agency and seven mem-
bers of its board of directors last
August seeking $170,511 in back
pay, unspecified compensation for
emotional distress and her old job
back, among other measures.
Kern recently was hired as Do-
mestic Violence Policy Advisor to
Attorney General Vincent Frazer
and VIPD Commissioner James
McCall, a position from which
she'll work with domestic violence
and sexual assault agencies on all
three islands including SJCCC.
The Crisis Center announced the
agreement last week.
"The St. John Community Crisis
Center and its board of directors
are pleased to inform the Virgin
Islands community, particularly
of St. John, of an amicable reso-
lution to a dispute with its former
executive director, Dr. Iris Kern,"


Dr. Iris Kern

according to a written statement
released by SJCCC. "We acknowl-
edge Kern's hard work and pro-
bity and her commitment to the
eradication of violent crime and
the treatment of those affected by
crime in our community. We wish
to put all misunderstandings be-
hind us and wish her much success
in the future."
Suit Filed Eight Months
After Firing
Kern, who founded the Safety
Zone in 1994, was ousted in Janu-
ary 2007 after an emergency mo-


tionby the board of directors which
cited grant compliance problems
as the reason for Kern's termina-
tion. The agency first began losing
funding in February 2004 due to a
lack of compliance, including pro-
viding required documentation to
governmental agencies. The Safety
Zone announced in January 2007
that in order to achieve its goals,
the board saw no other alternative
than to sever its ties with Kern.
Eight months later, Kern filed her
complaint, in which she alleged her
duties at the Safety Zone had been
increased, yet she received no help
from board members. Kern also
claimed an unnamed office worker
lied about making Federal Insur-
ance Contributions Act payments
and tax withholdings for employ-
ees. The Safety Zone founder al-
leged she was given half an hour
to remove her belongings and was
then locked out of the agency's
Lumberyard office. She also ac-
cused board members of using the
Safety Zone's assets for personal
gain.
SJCCC Executive Director


Shelley Williams and Kern refused
to comment on the terms of the
agreement. While Kern is happy
the dispute has come to a close,
she took issue with SJCCC's writ-
ten release, she explained.
"Imperative to Bring
Resolution"
"I found it interesting that while
reluctant to use the word 'integ-
rity,' they chose to use the word
'probity' and I wonder if they know
the definition," said Kern. "I'm re-
lieved it's over, I'm relieved I'm in
my new position, and I hope they
become cooperative and support-
ive of me in my new position."
Kern has moved on and is ready
to work with the SJCCC in her
new role with the Department of
Justice and VIPD, she added.
"We have to work together," said
Kern. "I certainly try not to hold
grudges. This is done, I've moved
on, and I hope they will too."
The SJCCC is looking forward
to moving on now that an agree-
ment has been reached, explained
Williams.
"It was imperative for us to


bring resolution to this lawsuit so
we could move the agency for-
ward," she said.

Couple Arranges St. John Wedding in 24 Hours

After Realizing Passport Is Expired, Couple Finds USVI As New Wedding Venue


By Andrea Milam
St. John Tradewinds
Emily-Anne Magee and Dr.
Cooper Callaway of Starkville,
Mississippi, had no idea when they
arrived on May 19 at the Memphis,
Tennessee airport with her wed-
ding dress in hand they would
be getting married on St. John in
less than 48 hours.
The couple were planning to
head to Mexico that day to be
married on the beach in Cabo San
Lucas on May 21, but there was
just one problem: Callaway, who
had nagged his fiancee for months
about making sure she applied for
and received her passport in time,
had an expired passport.
"We show up to the airport and
as I'm doing the self check-in, I
look up at the screen and it says
'please see attendant,'" said Calla-
way. "I looked at my passport, and
I just knew that's what it was."
"He'd been on me for months
and months, telling me, 'You gotta
get a passport,'" Magee added.
"Then we get there, and his pass-
port is expired. We had everything
planned out for our wedding on
Wednesday in Cabo."
While 22-year-old Magee, a
cosmetologist, admits to "pout-
ing like a two-year-old" when her
soon to be husband realized his


passport was expired, 36-year-old
Callaway, an orthodontist, kept
his calm. The couple settled into
the airport Starbucks where they
quickly researched other destina-
tions online.
Arranging Wedding
on 24-hour Notice
"They knew they wanted a
beach wedding, and the Virgin Is-
lands popped up right away," said
Stacy Mulcare of Ceremonies of
St. John. "From there, they picked
St. John, and then they picked Cer-
emonies of St. John. I got an email
from the airport Monday afternoon
asking if I could plan a wedding in
24 hours."
The couple lucked out when
Callaway realized he had his birth
certificate, and soon, they were off
to the Virgin Islands.
"We pretty much rearranged ev-
erything within 30 minutes," said


Magee.
"It's amazing what you can get
done with enough frequent flyer
miles and a credit card," Callaway
added.
For an in-demand wedding plan-
ner in the middle of one of her bus-
iest months, organizing a wedding
within 24 hours was no easy feat.
But somehow, the planets aligned
and Mulcare rounded up all the
necessary vendors, and was even
able to convince the V.I. Territorial
Court to waive the eight-day wait-
ing period required for obtaining a
marriage license.
"First, I had to figure out ex-
actly what services they were go-
ing to need minister, flowers,
photographer, videographer, cake,
champagne, permit to marry on
the beach and of course the mar-
riage license and set up all
those things on one day's notice,"
said Mulcare. "Luckily, the team
of people I work with on a daily
basis was all available at the par-
ticular date and time the bride and
groom wanted to marry. It was just
a series of phone calls with follow-
up email confirmations and work-
ing closely with the V.I. National
Park and the Territorial Court of
the Virgin Islands to be able to pull
this off."

Above Average Hurricane Season Predicted for 2008


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Sunday, June 1, marked the first day of the 2008
Hurricane Season which runs through November
30 and officials are predicting another above-av-
erage summer.
This year scientists Phillip Klotzbach and William
Gray from Colorado State University's Tropical Me-
teorology Project are calling for 15 named storms,
eight hurricanes and four intense hurricanes, mean-
ing a Category 3 or higher, according to the center's
April 2 predictions.
Winds must be between 111 and 130 miles per
hour, with storm surges generally between nine and
12 feet above normal, for a hurricane to be classified
Category 3.
Meterologists at the National Oceanic and Atmo-
spheric Administration's Climate Prediction Center
are predicting 12 to 16 named storms, six to nine of
which will develop into hurricanes and two to five of
those hurricanes will develop into major hurricanes


of Category 3 or higher strength. NOAA's predictions
were issued on May 22.
The Tropical Meteorology Project will issue up-
dated forecasts on Tuesday, June 3; Tuesday, August
5; Tuesday, September 2; and Wednesday, October
1. NOAA will release an updated prediction in early
August.

The Roanoke reportedly violated VIPA policy when
it offloaded vehiclees at the Creek, above.


Barge Violates VIPA Policy

By Offloading at Creek


By Andrea Milam
St. John Tradewinds
Barge traffic was rerouted
from the Cruz Bay Creek to the
Enighed Pond Marine Facility
in April 2006, so it's no wonder
residents were surprised to see
the Roanoke offloading cars at
the Creek on Tuesday evening,
May 27.
There has not been a change
in V.I. Port Authority opera-
tions, however. The Creek re-
mains closed, and the barge
operator violated VIPA policy
when he offloaded at the Creek,
according to Port Authority
spokesperson Marc Stridiron.
"The Creek remains closed,"
said Stridiron. "The vessel that
was operating was not supposed
to be there and that's something
we'll address with the opera-
tor."
The Roanoke was delayed
leaving St. Thomas the night of


May 27 and was due to arrive
at Enighed after the facility's
7 p.m. closing time. The dock-
master was informed of the de-
lay and was holding Enighed
open for the vessel, however
the captain motored over to the
Creek instead, explained Strid-
iron.
"We're not sure how the in-
formation came to us, but the
dockmaster was informed," he
said. "In cases like that, all the
operator needs to do is inform
the VIPA marine office or the
dockmaster on St. John that the
vessel is coming in late, and
the facility will be held open
to accommodate the last run
of the night. I'm fairly certain
this is known by the operators
already."
The VIPA spokesperson did
not comment on what action
will be taken against the Roa-
noke's operator.

St. John Rotary Club purchased
and erected this cross in memory

Fifth Annual Power



Swim Attracts Most


Swimmers Ever


By Andrea Milam
St. John Tradewinds
The Friends of the V.I. Nation-
al Park could not have asked for
a more beautiful day, or a better
turnout, for the fifth annual Beach
to Beach Power Swim on Sunday
morning, May 25. Not only was
the sky clear and the water flat, but
165 swimmers nearly 30 more
than last year came out for the
event, which brought in approxi-
mately $10,000 for the non-profit
organization.
"We couldn't have ordered bet-
ter weather," said Friends Devel-
opment Director Karen Brady.
"Everybody got out of the water
safely and we had a great barbecue
and nice awards ceremony after-
wards."
Race newcomer Edmund
Gendreau of Dover, New Hamp-
shire, won the overall race. The
46-year-old completed the three-
and-a-half mile long course in
1:17:00. Tortola resident Louise
Wearmouth, a former St. John
resident, won the long course for
the women with a time of 1:28:07.
Past winners were unable to attend
this year's race, leaving organiz-
ers wondering who would take the
lead, explained Brady.
"Annie Myrvang, who's won
two years in a row, wasn't able
to make it and other past winners
were not here either, so the course
was wide open," she said. "We
didn't have any idea. It was fun to
meet this guy from New Hamp-
shire, and Louise is still a St. John
Landshark, so that was pretty ex-
citing."
Increase in Stateside,
Local Competitors
This year's race attracted swim-
mers of all ages, from six-year-old
Seala Matthias to 74-year-old Bob
Klenke, both of St. John. There
was also a large contingent of
swimmers from the states, who
are starting to plan their vacations
around the event, according to
Brady. The Friends credit their ef-
forts to reach out to U.S. Masters
Swimming organizations and other
swim associations for the increase
in stateside participation.
"Just watching the numbers
grow this year was really excit-


"I'd just really like
to thank all of our
volunteers and spon-
sors, because without
them, and of course
the swimmers, the
show doesn't go on.
It's a fun community
event, and it's fun to
be together. I'd like to
thank everybody for
their time, effort and
resources."

Karen Brady,
Development Director
Friends of the VINP


ing," said Brady. "It gave us en-
ergy.
The rise in the number of V.I.
residents participating in the race
was partially due to a partnership
between the Friends and Pirate
Radio, whose morning DJ Cory
Willis had a contest for listeners
to call in and guess how long it
would take him to swim the mile-
long short course from Maho to
Cinnamon Bay.
"I think that generated a lot more
interest and excitement around the
race," said Brady. "This is just one
example of a sponsor getting in-
volved."
Other sponsors got involved in
the race, including St. John Insur-
ance, which helped staff the start-
ing line, and Alfredo's Landscap-
ing owner Alfredo del Olmo, who
put together a relay team with his
children.
"It's more than just financial
backing, which we really appre-
ciate," said Brady. "The actual
involvement of our sponsors is
really fun. Getting their interested
and getting them engaged makes it
more interesting for us too."

St. John resident Michael Fer-
guson brought the old adage "one
good deed deserves another," to
life when he was inspired to take
action after reading about the work
of Harvard University scholar
Henry Louis Gates Jr.
Three months after reading
that Gates and co-editor Evelyn
Brooks Higginbotham recently
published an eight-volume Afri-
can American National Biography,
Ferguson presented the series to
Julius E. Sprauve School officials
last week.
"After reading about Gates and
his work I thought it would be an
excellent thing for the kids in this
school system to read about really
interesting and impressive African
American people," said Ferguson.
Presented in an eight volume
series, the African American Na-
tional Biography set details the life
stories of 4,000 African American
people from writers and athletes to
musicians and civil rights leaders.
Dramatic and Visual Learning
Ferguson discussed obtaining
the series for the Cruz Bay school
with JESS Principal Mario Fran-
cis and the school's literacy coach
Elaine Jacobs, who immediately
jumped on board, Ferguson ex-


plained.
"Both Mario Francis and Miss
Jacobs were very excited and
thought it would be wonderful to
have the books at the school," he
said. "The students will be taking
individual stories out of the books
and recreate them in dramatic pre-
sentations. They will be learning
visually and dramatically through
the series."
St. John Rotary was the first or-
ganization to step up to the plate
and help offset the $995 price tag
for the African American National
Biography series.
Rotary Support
"Miss Jacobs and I went unan-
nounced to a Rotary meeting and
they agreed to give us half of the
amount," said Ferguson.
Once word of the plan to obtain
a copy of the series got around the
island, it didn't take long for Fer-
guson to come up with the remain-
der of the $995.
"Everyone I showed the article
to said 'yes, the young children
of our island should know about
these wonderful, intelligent Afri-
can Americans who did amazing
things in their lives," he said. "It
was wonderful how people just
jumped at the idea and it was all
about the children. People were
stopping me wherever I was to do-

JJ Fun Day Attracts Diverse Island Crowd; Rotary Awards Scholarship


By Andrea Milam
St. John Tradewinds
The third annual Javon Jade Memorial
Fun Day on Saturday, May 24, attracted a
diverse crowd of more than 100 Love City
youth, who enjoyed bouncing in the moon-
walk, music by DJ Percy and a make-your-
own-cupcake station.
The American Legion Viggo E. Sewer
Post 131's flag football league joined the
festivities after its regularly scheduled Sat-
urday games at the V.I. National Park ball
field, which also provided the venue for the
fun day.
Children enjoyed games and prizes, and
party-goers were well-fed thanks to Joyce
Sprauve's cooking.
"The fun day was great," said Deverell
Alfred, Javon Jade Alfred's mother.
The youngster was just seven years old
when he was killed after being struck by a
delivery truck as he crossed the intersection
of Pond Road and South Shore Road on his
way home from a Julius E. Sprauve School
Christmas party. He would have turned 11
on May 12.
"It was real nice working with the flag
football league," said Alfred. "I know Javon
would have had fun. He would have had
himself a ball."
Alfred hosts the fun day each year in an
effort to bring families together. The fun day
is the type of celebration her late son would


have wanted, she explained.
Rotary Awards Scholarship to Culbert
"It was a good mix of people," said Al-
fred. "I like to see all of St. John come to-
gether. Everybody worked hard and made it
a great day."
The St. John Rotary announced the recipi-
ent of its Javon Jade Alfred Scholarship at
the fun day. The scholarship is a need- and
merit-based award which provides $5,000
during the student's first year, $3,500 the
second year, $2,500 the third year and
$1,500 the fourth year.
"We had three finalists, and it was so
close," said Rotary president-elect B.J. Har-
ris. "We chose Dord Culbert, a Gifft Hill
School senior, who was born and raised here
and is going to the University of Vermont."
Culbert, daughter of Keryn Bryan, lived
on a boat with her mother and younger sister
until two years ago. The family now lives
at Bellevue Village. The GHS senior is un-
decided when it comes to what she'll study,
she explained.
"I haven't decided on what I'm going to
go for exactly, because I just haven't figured
it out yet," said Culbert. "It's pretty wide
open. I'm really excited."
Scholarship applicants are rated on finan-
cial need, transcripts, SAT scores, an essay
they were required to write on excellence
and their interview. Culbert edged ahead of
the other two finalists, explained Harris.

"She had a higher total percentage, but it

was very levelheaded, realistic and prag-
matic. She's very well-spoken and has a


great command of the English language."
Culbert has already received scholarships
and grants from the University of Vermont,

Travel has the ability to open people's minds and
can even inspire one to action, which is exactly what
happened to Emma Coldwell when she visited friends
on St. John last month.
A marketing and development director for a Ver-
mont-based non-profit organization, Coldwell was
moved by the close-knit community of St. John and
saw how her stateside work could contribute to the
island.
Volunteers for Peace (VFP), founded in 1982, plac-
es volunteers in service projects around the globe and
St. John groups stand to benefit from the organiza-
tion, explained Coldwell.
"After talking to some people on the island, I
thought St. John would be a good fit for our volunteer
efforts," Coldwell said. "It just has that small commu-
nity feel and with the National Park Service, it would
be ideal since we've partnered with the NPS before."
"But there are so many other service projects we
could help with also," continued Coldwell. "Really
anything like helping to paint a cafeteria to restoring
trails with the NPS."
VFP works in conjunction with more than 150 dif-
ferent organizations in 100 countries throughout the
world on projects ranging from running children's
day camps to helping with natural disaster relief ef-
forts.
"We are only limited by what we can create," Cold-

well said. "We could help in so many different areas.
There is always a need for community assistance."
Volunteers pay a nominal registration fee and are
usually placed in service projects for two to three
week periods. VFP officials secure basic housing
for volunteers, who reap many benefits through their
work, according to Coldwell.

Max Nickbarg Heading West to Race

in Elite Regattas This Summer


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
This summer Max Nickbarg will get the chance to
understand exactly what Mark Twain meant when
he penned the famous line "the coldest winter I ever
spent was a summer in San Francisco."
The Antilles School sophomore is heading up to the
Bay area after classes let out to compete in a full ros-
ter of premier laser radial regattas.
The invitation-only U.S. Youth Sailing Champion-
ship is first up for the St. John sailor, who has also
raced successfully with his Antilles team this school
year.
Nickbarg was chosen from among the top sailors
in the country under 19 years old to race in the U.S.
Youth Sailing Championship, hosted by the San Fran-
cisco Yacht Club from June 26 through July 1.
"I didn't get chosen last year so I'm really excited
to race in the youth championship this year," said
Nickbarg.
Not just anyone gets accepted to the race. Invita-
tions to the event are made by U.S. Sailing's Youth
Championship Committee, based on reviews of entry
forms.
This won't be Nickbarg's first trip to the Bay area.
The St. John sailor raced to a second place finish last
summer at the Pacific Coast Championships where he
relished the heavy wind.
"I'm really good in windy conditions, so the Bay
area is pretty good for me," said Nickbarg.
After the Youths Championships, the sailor will re-
main in California for the rest of the summer where
he'll compete in the North American Laser Champi-

Nickbarg excelled in the heavy wind in
San Francisco last summer, above.

onships and the National Championships.
Nickbarg will wrap up the summer competing in the
Pacific Coast Laser Championships at the Monterey
Peninsula Yacht Club from July 31 through August 3,
the race he did so well in last summer.
After staying with fellow racers during his time on
the west coast, the St. John sailor will return home
in mid-August, just in time to start his junior year at
Antilles.
Despite the cold temperatures in San Francisco,
Nickbarg can't wait to get in the water up there, the
sailor explained.
"It's pretty cold but the conditions are good for
me," said Nickbarg. "I want to see who is showing up
at the regattas. I'm excited to get back to California
and get out in the water."
"It will be a full summer, but I don't mind," Nick-
barg continued. "It's what I do."

Better Know a Ranger: Tarajoy Mihan


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
The new smiling face at the Trunk Bay fee collec-
tion booth comes all the way from Northern Califor-
nia and brings a wealth of experience.
Tarajoy Mihan started her permanent position as a
V.I. National Park fee collector in January after trans-
ferring from Lava Beds National Monument in north-
eastern California along with her husband Jeff, who
is a law enforcement ranger with the National Park
Service.
"I was a fee supervisor at Lava Beds National Mon-
ument for about a year and a half and my husband
was there too," said Mihan. "A position opened up in
law enforcement here and we visited in October."
While her husband was interviewing for a law en-
forcement position, Mihan had the chance to talk to
VINP Superintendent Mark Hardgrove and the park's
chief of concessions/fee program Elba Richardson.
Both Mihans ended up accepting positions on St.
John.
Once In a Lifetime
"They needed someone in the fee program and here
we are," Mihan said. "It was a once in a lifetime op-
portunity."
The northern California native first took a position
with the NPS after years of moving around the coun-
try with her husband.
"My husband got started in the park service and
I followed him around for years," said Mihan. "We
were in parks from Washington to Alaska. I was fol-
lowing him around doing odd jobs and working on a
seasonal basis."
"I was working in fees and maintenance and such
and about two years ago I took my first permanent
position with the NPS at Lava Beds," she added.
The newest VINP fee collection ranger is filling a
much-needed vacancy in the department.
"The fee program has been short-staffed for a while
and it's been really nice to come and help them when
they needed it," Mihan said. "I work with some great
people which I really enjoy."
Since arriving on St. John, Mihan has spent the time
getting used to island life, which she didn't find easy.
Difficulties of Island Life
"The most difficult part of the job has been adjust-
ing to life on the island," she said. "It's such a big
change from where we came from. The cost of living
is one big difference."
While the Mihans have lived on an island before,
being so far from family was difficult to get accus-
tomed to for the couple.
"We have lived on an island, on San Juan island off
the coast of Washington," said the VINP fee collec-
tor. "But the island was only an hour ferry ride from
Seattle. You were still connected."
"Our families are still back in California," Mihan
continued. "The isolation was a little hard to get used
to."
It took Mihan some time to adjust to the limitations
of Love City as well.
"Just the fact that you can't get everything you want
- that it's not at your fingertips," said Mihan. "Ev-
erything takes a lot of planning and it's a challenge.
We've lived pretty rurally before but we've never had
to do this much planning."
With the adjustment period behind her, Mihan has
been enjoying her time on St. John.
"Now that we've overcome some things and learned

employment on the North Shore.

how to plan, it's getting much better," said the VINP
ranger. "We've fallen in with a great group of people
whom we really enjoy spending time with."
Beach-goers From Around the World
Meeting the many people who visit Trunk Bay is
definitely the best part of Mihan's job, the ranger ex-
plained.
"I get to meet visitors from all over the country and
all over the world who come to the beach here," she
said. "My favorite part of the job is interacting with
the different visitors who come through here. Every-
one has a story and all want to share it."
Just don't ask Mihan to remember every person
who passes her Trunk Bay booth.
"We get anywhere from 500 to 1,500 people de-
pending on the day and how many cruise ships are
in," said Mihan. "We see a lot of people out here."
Being able to live in so many different places is
one of the best things about working for the NPS in
general, explained Mihan.
Protect, Preserve, Educate
"I really like working for the park service because
it gives you the opportunity to live all over the coun-
try and see amazing things," she said. "It gives you
the chance to protect and preserve and educate peo-
ple about these amazing natural resources. Parks are
lands of extremes in one way or another."
After adjusting to life on the rock, Mihan is em-
bracing St. John as home for now.
"We're calling this home for a while and looking to
stay on for some time," said the VINP fee collector.
"It's isolated and beautiful and unlike any other place
in the world. We go hiking and snorkeling and basi-
cally spend all of our free time outside."
"We're really enjoying it," Mihan added.
Next time you're at Trunk Bay, say hello to the
VINP's newest fee collection ranger.

Hairdresser Naomi Hodge Advocates for Healthy Hair


By Barbara Winch
St. John Tradewinds
If you are looking for extensions, weaves or those damag-
ing hair styles created with harsh chemicals, then Naomi's
Beauty Salon is not for you.
However, if you are looking to make your hair shine with
health and radiance; a clean and spacious salon; and a beau-
tician who is not only inviting and experienced, but strik-
ing and possessing the greatest smile ever; then you want to
visit Naomi Hodge at her newly opened salon in the Hodge
Building across from the Islandia Building on Centerline
Road.
From the moment you walk into Naomi's Beauty Salon
and meet Hodge, you are in for an unforgettable experience.
Hodge, with her style and grace, works busily on a client,
but takes the time, in between the conditioning and rinsing,
to tell St. John Tradewinds her story.
Professional Training
Hodge got her start in the hair business back in 1961 when
her older sister, Leoine, and she would travel from house to
house carrying their iron combs in a shopping bag. It was
really her sister's dream to become a hair dresser. Hodge's
dream was to become a seamstress, but she went along with
her sister to help out on weekends.
When her sister got married and her new husband didn't
want her to work anymore, Hodge "got stuck" with the cli-
ents they had. She decided that if this is what she was going
to do with her life, she had better get a license and become
legitimate.
Although there are now cosmetology schools on St.
Thomas and Puerto Rico, in 1966 there were none in the
area. Hodge packed her bags, kissed her two young children
good-bye and headed off for New York City. There she at-
tended the Apex Beauty School, which has since closed, and
earned her degree in cosmetology.
Home Business Moves to New Building
Having no desire to stay in the states, she came right back
to her home on St. John and began her career.

Hairdresser Naomi Hodge shows off Neanna
Sprauve's new coif after giving her a condition-
ing hair treatment.

After working out of her mother's home in Pastory, her
dream of opening her own shop was realized when she com-
pleted work on the Hodge Building in December. Having
torn down the wooden structure which had graced that land
for years, Hodge built the attractive building that stands


there today.
The three-story structure is open and airy and ready for
business. Naomi's Beauty Salon is on the first floor, and she
plans to rent out the three spaces on the second floor to busi-
nesses.
The top floor is reserved for a restaurant she plans to open
with her daughter, Laveme Hodge, who is also a hair dress-
er. It will feature local fare and, without a doubt, will be
amazing. Hodge loves to cook, and says she got that from
her mother who was a "great cook." When she eventually
retires from the salon, she plans to assist her daughter in the
restaurant.
Keeping Clients' Hair Healthy
Hodge's longevity in the hair business comes from both
her charming personality and her commitment to keeping
her clients' hair healthy and "not compromising the hair for
style." She estimates that she has about 30 clients who come
to her regularly and four whom she has had for more than 31
years. She even has clients come from St. Thomas to have
their hair done.
Hodge really likes working for herself, and feels good
about all that she has accomplished and all the women she
has helped keep their hair healthy and strong. She advocates
healthy hair, and "won't put that stuff that young people put
in their hair today."
Her philosophy is that healthy hair brings out the style.
She doesn't work on pageants and says "that is LeeAnn's
job."
Tips for Healthy Hair, Looking Young
Hodge's tips to keeping hair healthy are: Condition it a
lot; don't use a blow dryer; and don't put harsh chemicals
in it.
Her secret to looking so young is: Don't babysit your
grandchildren.
Naomi's Beauty Salon is open Tuesday through Saturday
from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. First time clients should call Hodge
at 776-6165. She does accept walk-ins, but would prefer to
speak with new customers before their initial visit.

Office of the Governor Launches Territorial

Selection Process for V.L Commemorative Quarter


American Legion Youth

Flag Football League

FINAL WEEK:
Packers 25 Rams 7
A tight start to this game as the Rams showed great offense
and defense. The Packers scored first but were quickly followed
by a fine Rams scoring drive where Justin Doran pitched to Oshe
Feldman for a nifty score. The Packers' Carson Wessenger played
a fabulous game on both sides of the ball as he passed for five
scores two to Bryan Morton, two to A. J. Penn and another to
JoQuan Clendinen. As first place finishers, the Packers get a bye
for the playoffs. The Rams still have a chance to come up big if
they can get past three teams in the grueling playoff heat.

Raiders 28 Bengals 8
The Raiders were on fire as they finished the regular season with
second place locked up. Aspen Moore and Steven Conley teamed
up yet again with some fancy scoring punch as they led throughout
the game. The Moore/Conley tandem connected for five scores
while Ian Coyle figured in another score. The Bengals' Marquis
Pilgrim hit Shakeem Meade for the only score of the game. The
Raiders have a bye in the playoffs based on their second place
finish.

Patriots 19 Broncos 13
With a 12-7 lead going into the second half, the Patriots had to
hold off a determined Broncos squad who played tough all game.
Nick Lopez tossed three TDs and Quazi Browne pitched two for
the game. The Patriots faced the Rams and the Broncos faced the
Bengals May 31 as the playoff rounds began.

Final Standings

Packers 9-1 328 89

Patriots 5-5 218 215

Governor John deJongh recently
selected members of the commu-
nity from throughout the territory
to advise him on the creation and
design of a Virgin Islands Com-
memorative Quarter. Following
legislation sponsored by Delegate
to Congress Donna Christensen
in 2007, the United States Mint
requested that the Virgin Islands
design a commemorative quarter.
Throughout the nation, the devel-
opment of a design is overseen by
the Office of the Governor. In the
territory, individuals were invited
by deJongh to participate on the
Virgin Islands Commemorative
Quarter Selections Committee to
create and design a special-issue
coin. The final three designs have
been released to the general pub-
lic for review and selection.
"This recognition by The Unit-
ed States Mint is a great honor
and gives Virgin Islanders and the
people of this nation another op-
portunity to learn about V.I. his-
tory," said deJongh. "One of the
goals of the selections committee
was to encapsulate a message that
recognizes the beauty of the is-
lands, as well as our culture, heri-
tage, and our dynamic experience
as a people. I would like to con-
gratulate the selections committee
for their diligent efforts to involve


the community as much as possi-
ble in selecting a final design for
this special coin."
In January 2008, deJongh se-
lected the following members to
establish the selections commit-
tee: Delta Dorsch (facilitated by
her niece, Claire Roker); Richard
Schader; Dr. Gilbert Sprauve; Dr.
Edith Ramsay; Allegra Moore-
head from the V.I. Department of
Tourism; Myron Jackson, Direc-
tor of the Virgin Islands Cultural
Institute; David Knight; and Lor-
na Thomas, Director of the State
Historic Preservation Office. The
committee is facilitated by Lesley
Commissiong, special assistant to
the governor.
The final three choices for
the commemorative quarter are
available at the governor's Web
site, www.governordejongh.com.
Individuals may visit the site
and vote electronically for their
choice, where an electronic ballot
is featured. Paper ballots are also
available at Government House,
the Administrator's Office on all
three islands, and at all public
libraries and public high schools
throughout the territory. In addi-
tion, a copy of the ballot will be
placed in the Virgin Islands Daily
News, the St. Croix Avis, as well
as the St. John Tradewinds.

Virgin Islands Commemorative
Quarter began May 22, and the
process will last three weeks,
concluding on June 13. At the end
of the selections process, Govern-
ment House will tabulate the re-
sults of the vote and will forward
a final design to the United States
Mint based on the votes of the
community and the final approval
of the selections committee.
To date, more than 7,000 bal-
lots have been cast for a Virgin
Islands Commemorative Quarter
design, including approximately
6,000 votes from the governor's
Web site.
More than 500 million Virgin
Islands Commemorative Quarters
will be produced in 2009 and will
be released for circulation at the
end of next year. Proof quarter
sets will be available early next
year. The District of Columbia
and the five other United States
territories, including the U.S. Vir-
gin Islands, Guam, Puerto Rico,
the Northern Mariana Islands,
and American Samoa will each be
honored with a Commemorative
Quarter, to be released in 2009 in
equal, sequential intervals.
Individuals interested in learn-
ing more about the selections pro-
cess should contact Comissiong
at 774-0001 for more information
regarding the process.

Rhythm & Views

An outlook on young adult interests and concerns
by Malik Stevens




A Helping Hand, Please


St. John Tradewinds
This year I was offered the op-
portunity to attend many different
summer programs throughout the
United States. These programs
included offers from Naval Acad-
emies, internship programs, lead-
ership conventions, college trips,
etc.
Of all these programs, one
in particular happened to catch
my eye, the Junior Statesmen of
America.
"What is the Junior Statesmen
of America," many people asked
me.
The Junior Statesmen of Amer-
ica, or JSA, is both a year-round
and summertime program. Its
program revolves around politics,
government, debate, writing and
public speaking.
Students from all over the U.S.
take part in this tremendous pro-
gram. Every year, the Junior
Statesmen program molds many
students into well informed intel-
lectual young adults. The summer
program is extremely vigorous,
but even more rewarding.
I first became aware of this pro-
gram last school year when the St.
Thomas/St. John District Advisor,


Marc Stridiron, came to our school
to educate the students on this
amazing program. Right away, I
knew it was a great program, but I
already had things planned for that
summer.
This year, after seeing the dif-
ference it has made with the stu-
dents who attended, hearing their
intriguing stories and taking part
in the year-round after school
program in St. Thomas, I knew I
just had to attend the summer pro-
gram.
I believe that attending this
program will benefit me in many
ways. I will learn a lot more about
government and politics. I will
enhance my speech and fluency. I
will take part in both fun and edu-
cational debates, meet new people,
and become familiar with more
things that an up-and-coming
leader should know.
Like anything else in life, how-
ever, attending this program comes
with a price.
As a 2008 attendee of the Ju-
nior Statesmen Summer Program,
I am required to pay a tuition of
$3,604.50 plus take care of my
own air fare, all of which should
be paid by the 11th of June.


At first I thought that I would re-
ceive one of the scholarships avail-
able to students of this program.
But because I am the only St. John
student attending the program this
year, news happened to bypass me
and I was left unaware of the many
scholarships and the deadlines.
I got frustrated by this and
because I was not financially
equipped for this program I ini-
tially gave up on the idea of at-
tending.
After long and hard contempla-
tion, I realized giving up was not
my thing and I worked long hours
at the grocery store thinking that
would be enough. Even so, the ex-
penses of my junior year happened
to over-power my saving abilities.
On June 24 I am supposed to
leave for Stanford University in
California, where this program
will be, but this is only with the
help of my caring and loving com-
munity. As they say, "it takes a vil-
lage to raise a child."
If anyone is willing to give a
helping hand, contact the St. John
Tradewinds at 340-776-6496.
Thank you in advance for caring
and helping me on the way of be-
coming the best that I can be.

Mothers-led Children's Program in Coral Bay


St. John Tradewinds
The weekly mothers-led after
school children's games day pro-
gram at the Coral Bay ball field
will be enhanced thanks to a Com-
munity Foundation of the Virgin
Islands grant to purchase balls and
sports equipment.
The Coral Bay Community
Council has received a $500 mini-
grant from CFVI to provide sports
and games equipment for an infor-
mal mothers-led weekly games af-


ternoon at the Coral Bay ball field.
During the summer, the program
will be every Thursday afternoon
from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., weather
permitting.
During the winter months, it was
on Wednesday afternoons, but is
now switching to Thursday. Usu-
ally five to 10 mothers are present,
and up to 30 children. It has been a
great time for mothers and children
to interact around teaching their
children games and ball skills.


The program will include soccer,
t-ball and other games. Parents can
bring children of any age; the fo-
cus is between three and 14 years
old. Activities will vary depending
on the children present. Parents are
encouraged to come and participate
personally when/if they can and
otherwise arrange for supervision
by other parents present. All Coral
Bay moms, dads and children are
invited to participate. For more in-
formation call 642-7638.


The Cri.is& Center Conn0ctbov /
by SusuWrc M oayt

Women of Worth Support Group


St. John Tradewinds
This has been a busy month for us here on-island
as another school year winds down. The St. John
Community Crisis Center has started a support group
for women who have experienced abuse or assault, in
any of its forms.
The new group called, "Women of Worth," is meet-
ing on Thursday evenings at the office above St. John
Ice Company in the Lumberyard. The office is air
conditioned, and there is free parking. Just call the
SJCCC to sign up.
If you are a little shy about the whole thing and
wonder just what the heck is going on, come a few
minutes early and arrive a little before the 6:30 p.m.
start for a good chance to sit with like-minded people
who want to share things in confidence.
Wagapalooza was a really fun time. Last year the
Animal Care Center changed the start time to late in
the afternoon, which has allowed more folks to stay
for the whole event without worrying about the heat.
Animal (and people) advocate Bonny Corbeil led
everyone in a new pledge about the link between how
we treat animals and how that affects the way kids
treat other people, and more.
I noticed that many adults had their hands raised
when they took the pledge with Bonny, as did kids.
Very impressive, indeed!
Speaking of impressive, congratulations to Aus-
tin and Gregory, and their sweet little pumpkin dog,
Rocket. Wagapalooza staff were so impressed with
their little dog Austin and Gregory received a special
award for their entire classroom. Seizing the moment,
the boys entered a second category, and won a first
place blue ribbon. Rocket was no doubt the "Best Lap
Dog" I've seen in a while.
Paul Devine, the new executive director of the St.
John Community Foundation, and his group of vol-
unteers is going strong with the flag football program.
Since I live in the Cruz Bay Apartments I can hear
the announcer during the games and I wonder if it has
to be Paul.
Anyway, whomever is the announcer, he elaborates
with such detail on each game play and everything as-
sociated with it, that I feel as if I have a box seat at the
Superbowl. I am so very glad that all the island kids
have a chance to participate in this sport. Thanks to
the American Legion and its community supporters.
I attended the press conference at the Julius E.


Sprauve School about the new St. John School last
week. The positive tone and shared spirit between
Governor John deJongh and Senator Jay Rockefeller
was in the air for all to hear in their voices.
The senator has successfully represented the people
of my home state of West Virginia for many years.
Now he is helping families here on St. John finally get
the new school they so richly deserve. Regardless of
one's politics, this is a great day.
National Mental Health Month
This is National Mental Health Month, not just in
the territory, but across the nation. I'm going to share
a few thoughts about the spirit of the term "inclu-
sion."
As a society, even in our little island world, we
should never stop trying to reach out to others who
may seem different. On the other hand, if we are one
of the "different ones," we should never stop reaching
out to get the support we may know we need.
That gets pretty hard sometimes, especially when
we may not be as emotionally strong as others think
we are. Some of us falter so many times, that we give
up. The suicides we have had on St. John in the last
couple of years come to mind.
Others press onward in the face of all manner of
difficulties. We all know people like that, too, thank
goodness! Those are the people in our lives we are
thinking of when we say to a friend, "I don't know
how he does it, if I had been through all he has in
his life, I know I would have given up a long time
ago."
In closing, I would like to say a word about the
strength people here on-island get from participating
in their individual houses of worship. Each one offers
spiritual support and encouragement, not only to its
members, but to our entire community.
Attending a church service may be the only re-
spite some who care for loved ones with an illness
may get in the course of an entire week. I speak
for many when I express how grateful we are to our
church communities.
This is my last column on behalf of the St. John
Community Crisis Center. Last year at this time, I first
wrote about the place of Festival in our lives. Now
Festival is already rolling around again.
It's hard to believe how quickly time passes. Don't
forget to be safe, and keep the little ones close during
the long evenings of Festival entertainment.

ISLAND NOTES

Memorial Day Weekend Memories


St. John Tradewinds
With Friday night as family night, my son Oliver
rented a movie at Kaleidoscope for the evening's en-
tertainment before we headed home to have dinner.
After a hardworking day week actually I
sipped on a glass of wine outside during sunset. My
husband Tom and I talked about weekend plans and
schedules as it was jam packed with activities the
Javon Jade Alfred Memorial Fun Day, the Beach to
Beach Power Swim, Sally's Tea Party and Memorial
Day activities.
On Saturday we woke later than normal the only
day I really don't work (but usually I do). Oliver was
granted his two hours of Saturday morning cartoons
and our family enjoyed a relaxed and leisurely break-
fast with each other before heading to the National
Park ball field for the third annual Javon Jade Alfred
Memorial Fun Day.
Javon Alfred Memorial Fun Day
This day is one of my favorites. I get to spend time
with my dear friend Deverell, Javon's mother, her
family and friends, and my own family. We all have a
great time watching all the children play, run around
and of course, thanks to the Rotary Club of St. John,
jump in the big blow-up playground.
Rotary club members helped serve food, drinks,
popcorn and took turns manning the jumping station
after announcing Dor6 Culbert as the recipient of the
2008 Javon Jade Alfred Memorial Scholarship. Con-
gratulations Dor6 and best wishes for a successful
year at University of Vermont in Burlington have
fun but study hard.
One of the most exciting parts of the day was when
Oliver ran to get my camera. I had already put it in the
car when he asked where it was go figure but
I asked him why and he said he found a sea horse. I
didn't quite believe him and I didn't want to go all the
way to the car if it wasn't the real thing but sure
enough there it was right in the Creek.
I was completely amazed. This is the first time ever
that I have seen a sea horse in its "natural habitat" -
but in the Creek? I was blown away. I always thought
I might encounter one in the sea grass beds a more
clean, undisturbed area. What a thrill!
Beach to Beach Power Swim
Sunday started quite early for my husband Tom
who photographed the Friends of the VINP's fifth an-
nual Beach to Beach Power Swim. The race started
at Maho and ended at Hawksnest for the long course
swimmers. The short course finish ended at Cinnamon
Bay and to our surprise and excitement Augusto
Cividini took first place! A big congratulations also to
Edmund Gendreau, of Dover, New Hampshire, who
finished first on the long course.
Augusto was born on St. John 14 years ago and he
is the son of Javier and Claudia. Many of you may
remember them when they were co-owners of Mor-
gan's Mango. The Cividinis have since moved to Key
Biscayne, Florida, but are still very much involved in
their St. John home rentals. Claudia has informed me
Augusto will be training for the long course next year!
Wow, what an incredible goal. Good luck Augusto!
Sally's Tea Party

ones you dare not wear to church, and sashay to


This seahorse was spotted in the Cruz
Bay Creek by 8-year old Oliver Oat on
Saturday, May 24. The extremely rare find
thrilled event-goers who were at the annual
Javon Jade Alfred Memorial Fun Day.


Sally's" is what the tea party invitation announced.
So that's just what my girlfriend Lee Eng Khauv and
I did Sunday afternoon. When we arrived, we were
greeted by the V.I.'s most prominent florist Felipe
Ayala and Sally's owners Gayle Varlack and Faye
Fredericks.
In the courtyard, tables were set and adorned with
tea cup flower arrangements. The tea party included
a spread of appetizers and drinks from wine to cham-
pagne but Sally's famous grape punch served with
blackberries and raspberries was the hit!
On display were the shop's newest arrivals to-
die-for shoes that were still at the post office. Luckily
Gayle had a connection and was able to retrieve them
for the party. Each guest had to sashay down the "red"
carpet donning their "naughtiest, cutest, sexiest"
shoes. The crowd cheered and a winner was chosen!
Thank you Gayle for thinking of me and picking
out a dress for me to wear to the Chamber of Com-
merce Awards Dinner on St. Thomas, where Stanley
Selengut of Maho Bay Campgrounds will be honored.
I know I'll be dressed appropriately and fashionably!
Honoring Veterans on Memorial Day
Honoring our country's service men and women
was what Monday was all about the American Le-
gion Viggo E. Sewer Post 131 hosted several activities
across the island. My husband (and Oliver) who was
photographing services at all four cemeteries recalled
veteran Jerry Runyon say, "whether a war is popular
or unpopular, the sacrifice is the same."
Memorial Day weekend 2008 on St. John was one
to remember full of family, fun, fashion, and, of
course, the memories of those who have or are cur-
rently serving our country.

Letters to St. John Tradewinds


Open Letter to Senator Jay Rockefeller


Dear Senator Rockefeller:
Even though as a resident of the unincorporated
territory of the Virgin Islands, I am not one of your
constituents, it is my fervent hope that this communi-
cation is shared with you regarding an extremely im-
portant matter that historically your family has been
aligned with in the Virgin Islands.
This letter is written on the heel of a rumor that you
and Governor John deJongh will be visiting St. John
and the Julius E. Sprauve School on matters related to
HR53 federal legislation that was proposed by our
own non-voting Delegate to Congress Donna Chris-
tensen addressing the critical need for land existing
within the Virgin Islands National Park to create a site
for a new educational facility on St. John.
It is difficult for me to express adequately the sense
of loss and deprivation that I experience as I observe
what the Virgin Islands National Park has become in
the lives of St. Johnians. It is important that I share
with you the fact that my own family, immediate and
extended, sold land for the purpose of creating the
park during the 1950s. To most innocent and naive
land-owning St. Johnians of that period, the promised
coming of the park was awaited with great anticipa-
tion. However, even though original legislation creat-
ing the park allowed for traditional practices such as
the setting of fish pots and the catching of bait for
fishing by subsistence and recreational fishermen,
these at first glance protected practices came under
increasingly severe scrutiny by park administration
with the introduction of strenuous rules and regula-
tions pursuant to the park's own governing responsi-
bilities of its holdings.
Based upon the delegation of legislative authority,
many of these rules and regulations rendered subor-
dinate and no longer meaningful, the original legis-
lation creating the park. For some Virgin Islanders,
the park is now seen as unwelcome, and especially so
with what appears to be the hoarding of land that de-
prives even the local government of the normal abil-
ity to acquire desirable land on the small island of St.
John for public purposes through sale and purchase
schemes or eminent domain.
When Governor Charles W. Tumbull announced
publicly that he was communicating with the new


Secretary of Interior with the intention of swap-
ping our remaining territorially owned cays for land
upon which to develop an educational complex on
St. John, this writer responded critically and loudly
to the governor's proposed plan to remove the cays
from local control and instead place them under park
ownership and control in a land-swapping arrange-
ment. My extensive commentary on the governor's
proposed action appeared in the August 7, 2006, issue
of the Virgin Islands Daily News, and it is believed
that the critique of the governor's proposal served to
eventually thwart his plan while at the same time pro-
moted the idea of a land-lease as also discussed in
the critique, followed by the subsequent introduction
and passage of HR53 by the United States House of
Representatives.
Preparatory to the House passage of the Delegate's
land-lease legislation, a July 9, 2007, hearing of the
Subcommittee on Insular Affairs of the House was
held on St. John in which this writer participated and
supported the land-lease legislation despite its listing
by him as the least desired option of all three options
offered in the August critique. In reaction to the ar-
gument made by both the park's administration and
the Friends of the Park that the effect of the proposed
legislation would result in a precedent that will affect
parks nationally, this non-lawyer writer argued on the
record against the viewpoints expressed by both the
park's administration and the Friends by summoning
Congress' plenary authority over the territories as de-
tailed in the Territorial Clause of the United States
Constitution. The argument advanced by this writer
made it clear that he believed the entire matter was
properly before the Congress for disposition if Con-
gress were to address fully what amounts to a griev-
ance by one of its unincorporated territories and not
for the park to decide the issue in accordance with its
authority versus the plenary authority of the Congress
to make all needful rules, regulations and laws gov-
erning the territories.
Unfortunately, the park, its Friends and even some
congress persons are heard speaking of precedent-
setting if HR53 is adopted. This writer rejects this as-
sertion on the basis that there are numerous instances

Dear Editor:

African American National Biography Series


Continued from Page 8
education and I taught at Montessori School in
Oklahoma where I worked with autistic kids and
students with special needs," said Ferguson. "My
student loans started coming due and I got married
and had children and started my own businesses. I
never went back to teaching, but I've always been
involved with education."
"I firmly believe that great minds talk about in-
teresting things, interesting people and new ideas
and people with little minds just talk about other
people," Ferguson continued. "I think this series
will open students' minds."
Famous and Ordinary People
African American National Biography conveys
the stories of a vast array of people, not all of
which have ever been told.
"They limited the entries to only include 400
athletes and musicians because the books were in-
tended to highlight incredible accomplishments by
every day people," said Ferguson. "So while there
are stories of famous people, there is also a story
about the woman who raised 12 children and then
got her doctorate at the age of 50 and now prac-
tices medicine in Georgia."
Ferguson was an avid reader when he was young
and hopes the series will inspire St. John students
to accomplish great deeds in their own lives.
Inspiring the Next Generation
"When I was a kid, I read every book I could get
my hands on it inspired me to achieve things," he
said. "I'd love for the kids to read about someone
who sparks their interest."
"I hope the kids are inspired to look at these
people and realize that no matter what happens in
their lives, if they apply themselves in a creative,
positive and intelligent way, they can achieve their
goals," continued Ferguson.
St. John students might even be able to add to
future volumes of the African American National
Biography series, Ferguson added.
"As we speak, the editors are working on vol-


"It's a unique collection be-
cause it doesn't just cover the
famous and usual biographi-
cal subjects, but it also covers
the not-so-famous people who
did good for their communities
- similar to what Mr. Ferguson
has done."
Elaine Jacobs, JESS Literacy Coach

umes nine and 10," he said. "I hope students will
talk to their parents and grandparents and learn
about some of the phenomenal things people did
on this island. Students could contribute those sto-
ries for future volumes."
As the literacy coach at JESS, Jacobs was fa-
miliar with Gates' work and the African American
National Biography series. She was thrilled with
the idea to obtain the series for the school.
Recognizing the "Little Things"
"When I learned of Mr. Ferguson and his efforts,
I thought it was wonderful," said Jacobs. "It's a
unique collection because it doesn't just cover the
famous and usual biographical subjects, but it also
covers the not-so-famous people who did good for
their communities similar to what Mr. Ferguson
has done."
"It's important to recognize the little things that
people do," Jacobs added.
JESS Principal Francis thanked Ferguson on be-
half of the entire student body.
"Everyone here at JESS is extremely grateful
to Michael Ferguson for his efforts," said Francis.
"He came to us, we had a discussion and he went
out and got three sets of the encyclopedias. We're
going to make them a definite part of our curricu-
lum, not just in history but in literature and drama
as well."

and was grateful for the support from her home island, she explained.
"I was really glad and excited because I know it's going to help me
out a lot in paying for college," said Culbert. "I just want to say thanks to
Rotary because they are really helping us out. I'm so honored they chose
me for their scholarship."
The Rotary enjoyed working in conjunction with Alfred to present the
scholarship in her son's name at the fun day, according to Harris.
"The scholarship is in Javon's memory to offer kids opportunities that
he didn't have," she said. "It's just amazing to see our kids doing so well
academically and socially. I'm proud to be able to support this effort."

where Congress in exercising its plenary authority, is
known to create laws that vary among the territories
and are not in any way precedent-setting among either
the territories or the states. Just observe the declara-
tion of Article III and Article IV District Court Judges
in the territories. District Court judges in Puerto Rico,
an unincorporated territory, hold lifetime tenures
while District Court judges in all other unincorporat-
ed territories are given 10-year appointments.
Additionally, observe the once acquired ability of
the Northern Marinas, an unincorporated territory,
to exercise control over immigration in that territory
where no such authority was extended to the other
territories or possessions.
Throughout the subcommittee hearing on St. John
on July 9, 2007, reference was made often to the re-
versionary clause in the gifting to the federal govern-
ment of acquired lands for the park, if these lands
were used for purposes that differed from the origi-
nal intent. After listening to those admonishments
repeatedly and in view of the critical situation that
this writer has observed on St. John, he questioned if
the Rockefeller Foundation was ever apprised of the
developing crisis over land on the island. He further
asked if a reprieve of sorts was ever sought from the
foundation from the stringent application of the legal
recourse available to it as we attempted to address the
unintended consequences of the massive acquisition
and transference of privately owned lands into the
park before being sure that land would be available
for educational and other public purposes. There was


r r

absolutely no response to the question.
On the basis of what has been learned about the
sentiment of the Rockefeller family at the time of the
original gifting, this writer believed that an appro-
priate request for the family's intervention with the
federal government, including the Congress, and on
behalf of all Virgin Islanders was worth attempting to
ensure the best result possible for all concerned while
at the same time repairing the developing poor image
of the park on St. John. This writer still believes that
this is possible, and especially so with Senator Rock-
efeller's involvement and without any locally owned
and controlled public lands being exchanged, or in
any way added to the vast land-holdings of the Virgin
Islands National Park.
This is my prayer!
Gaylord A. Sprauve,
A septuagenarian Virgin Island native son

NOTE: Since preparing this letter, you actually
visited St. John in the company of Governor deJongh,
as told to me by Susan Mann, a native West Virgin-
ian reporting on your visit for Caribbean Net News,
a regional electronic news source. Even though it ap-
pears that Governor deJongh has unilaterally com-
mitted Virgin Islanders to the announced land swap,
the "resolution" of the school issue leaves me with
mixed feelings since the Virgin Islands is committing
its limited land resources to an entity of the federal
government while losing local control of those same
resources. The untenable situation that this most re-
cent "resolution" exposes is discomforting.

offshore cays with the VINP for land for a school, and
more recently, Delegate to Congress Donna Chris-
tensen's bill, HR 53, which would allow the Secretary
of the Interior to enter into a long-term lease with the
V.I. government on behalf of the National Park Ser-
vice to provide land for the new facility.
Christensen's bill passed the House of Representa-
tives in October 2007, but is facing opposition in the
U.S. Senate, the delegate explained last week.
"It's a high barrier to climb in the senate with this
lease," said Christensen. "Even senators who are sym-
pathetic to the issue are not supportive of the lease."
While deJongh's proposal is not yet finalized, it's
something that the players are "moving on right now,"
said the governor.
Christensen was aware of deJongh's efforts to initi-
ate the swap between land on St. Croix and St. John,
and while she supports getting students out of Cruz
Bay, she believes the people of both islands need to
be consulted, she explained after Wednesday's press
briefing.
"I still think it's important for the governor to dis-
cuss with the people to see if they are willing to par-
ticipate in this process," said Christensen. "In the end,
everybody wants the school and I'm sure there will be
some kind of agreement. I consider this the beginning
of the process."
Officials from the VINP, V.I. Department of Educa-
tion and the Trust for Public Land joined deJongh and
Rockefeller at last week's tour of the JESS campus.

Couple Arranges St. John

Wedding in 24 Hours

Continued from Page 5
Mixup Worked in Couple's Favor
Mulcare viewed the marriage license as the biggest potential
obstacle, however she was pleasantly surprised with the Territo-
rial Court's response, she explained. The wedding planner, who
has been in business on St. John since 1994, was amazed at how
everything fell into place for Magee and Callaway.
"The planets, the sun, everything moved in line for Emily-Anne
and Cooper because usually, your initial thought when someone
wants a sunset wedding in May with 24 hours notice is 'no way,'"
said Mulcare. "For them to find a wedding planner who's compe-
tent and could put it together in 24 hours, then to have the vendors
line up and the courthouse and VINP work with us took a lot of
people being on the same page. I don't know if it could be done
again so quickly."
Magee and Callaway were married on Trunk Bay beach by Rev-
erend Emmanuel Jaggernauth at sunset on May 21, and enjoyed a
wedding cake made by Seamus Mulcare.
The passport snafu seemed to work in the couple's favor, as
both Magee and Callaway feel they had a better time on St. John
than they would have in Mexico, they explained.
"I'm glad we were on St. John instead of in Cabo," said Magee.
"It was beautiful, absolutely amazing. It was the perfect wedding,
and I couldn't have imagined it any better."
"We ended up with a better wedding, better scenery and better
vacation than we would've had if we went to Cabo," Callaway
added.
St. John Businesses Benefit
The island of St. John benefited from Callaway's expired pass-
port as well. Several local businesses, including Ceremonies of
St. John; Zozo's, where the couple had their wedding dinner; the
Westin Resort, where they stayed; and Woody's and the Lime Inn,
where the couple enjoyed meals, all made money they may not
have earned if a passport was required to travel to the V.I.
"This proves how valuable it is to not need a passport to come
here," said Mulcare. "I'm so pleased the Virgin Islands doesn't
require a passport, because if we did, this never would have hap-
pened. Alot of people benefited financially because the U.S. Virgin
Islands doesn't require a passport."
The couple was impressed with Mulcare's ability to pull their
wedding together on such short notice. Callaway especially ap-
preciated Mulcare's efforts, he explained.
"We really appreciate Stacy for everything," said Callaway. "She
definitely bailed me out of a jam. I owe her a big one for sure."

Fifth Annual Power Swim Attracts Most Swimmers Ever

mers a check for $250. This year's recipient was the
St. John Landsharks, whose Jeff Miller, Megan Cliff
and Louise Wearmouth won the award with a com-
bined time of 4:41:25.
The 13 five-year veterans of the race were present-
ed with hand-blown glass turtles, and the winners of
each course received hand-blown glass sculptures of
stingrays, dolphins and trumpet shells.
"They were really beautiful," said Brady. "People
really enjoyed them. We don't put a plaque on them,
so the winners can use them as a decorative piece."
Even more beautiful than the trophies was the race
course itself. The course was declared the most beau-
tiful swim one of the more seasoned competitors has
ever experienced, explained Brady.


"He said he does triathlons and swims all over the
world, and this was the most beautiful swim he's ever
done," she said. "We hear often that our beaches and
our waters are beautiful, and it's entertaining to be
swimming along the way and see a turtle. One partici-
pant even saw a dolphin."
Brady thanked everyone involved for yet another
successful Beach to Beach Power Swim.
"I'd just really like to thank all of our volunteers
and sponsors, because without them, and of course
the swimmers, the show doesn't go on," she said.
"It's a fun community event, and it's fun to be to-
gether. I'd like to thank everybody for their time, ef-
fort and resources."
