Residents Can Choose Between Old and New Tax Rates for '06

Government will issue two tax bills under interim agreement for 2006


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Under a temporary agreement, St. John
residents have a reprieve from skyrocketing
property taxes at least this year.
VI. Unity Day Group members shared
details of a property tax interim agreement
between lawyers and VI. government offi-
cials with about 50 residents at a Thursday
evening, June 5, meeting at the St. John
Legislature building.
Commercial and residential property taxes
have been frozen at the 1998 rate since 2003
when District Court Judge Thomas Moore
deemed the V.I. government's tax collection
system unfair and placed an injunction on
tax rates.
Georgia-based BearingPoint won a $6.5
million government contract to conduct a
mass revaluation of all the properties in the
territory, which the company recently com-
pleted.
Many St. John residents facing bills
four to 10 times higher than their previous
property tax bills strongly disagreed with
their new values and the process by which
BearingPoint assessed their properties.
The VI. Unity Day Group retained Attor-
ney James Derr, who filed a lawsuit against
the V.I. government objecting to the prop-
erty revaluation.
Injunction Still in Place
Although the revaluation is complete and
court-appointed Special Master Joe Hunt
has given a favorable review of the process,
the District Court injunction has not yet
been lifted.
The government, however, is in need of
revenue and officials have been scrambling
to find a way to collect property taxes.


Cid Hamling makes a point during th
Margie Labrenz listens.

While District Court Judge Curtis Gomez
continues hearing arguments on the property
tax case, government officials and lawyers
hammered out a temporary agreement en-
abling the V.I. Tax Assessor's Office to mail
out 2006 property tax bills.
The 2006 bills will include two tax val-
ues. One tax amount will reflect the higher
revaluated rate and the other rate will be the
lower 2005 rate, before the revaluation.
Government Needs Money
"The governor is crying he needs money
and we've never said that we don't want to
pay property taxes," said Unity Day Group
member Lorelei Monsanto. "In order to as-
sist the government, an interim agreement
was created with choices given."

ie Unity Day-sponsored meeting as


Residents have the option of paying the
higher 2006 rate which should be close
to the estimated rate mailed to residents sev-
eral months ago or the lower 2005 rate,
explained Unity Day property tax chairper-
son Myrtle Barry.
"The agreement should be drafted soon,
but we wanted you to be informed as soon
as possible," Barry said. "The agreement al-
lows taxpayers to have a choice of their old
bills what they paid in 2005 or their
new bills based on the newly assessed val-
ues for 2006."
No Penalties for Paying Lower Rate
"It's up to us to choose the bill that makes
the most economic sense for us," Barry
continued. "We think that will be the 2005


bill."
Residents will not be penalized in any
way for paying the lower rate, she added.
Barry urged residents to read their 2006
bills carefully.
"Make sure you understand the bill and
you pay the rate you want," said Barry.
While the 2006 bills will actually be low-
er for some residents in St. Thomas and St.
Croix, that doesn't seem to be the case for
most St. John property owners, Barry ex-
plained.
St. Croix and St. Thomas Are Happy
"People on St. Thomas and St. Croix are
quite happy with their new assessments,"
said Monsanto. "St. John was thrown a
curve ball and we went higher. But we have
a choice."
"If you wish to pay the lower the rate, you
can," Monsanto continued. "In solidarity,
we'd like the people of St. John to pay the
lower rate because we're fighting the sys-
tem."
It remained uncertain when the 2006 bills
will actually be sent, Monsanto added.
Wrong Information in Public
With so much wrong information in the
public, residents should share what they
know about the new tax bills with friends
and neighbors, explained Monsanto.
"Too many people are not aware of what's
going on," she said. "We are all in this to-
gether and we must educate everyone."
Residents who have been receiving notic-
es of delinquent property taxes from years
ago should not be worried, according to
Barry.
"I know these notices are causing quite a
scare, but don' be afraid," she said. "The key

St. John Rotary has taken over
the helm of the much anticipat-
ed Children's Village during the
St. John Festival and Cultural
Celebration this year.
While St. John Community
Foundation members have run
the fun-filled festivities in the
past, Rotarians will ensure the
island's children will once again
have a drug- and alcohol-free
place to play games and win
prizes from June 28 through
July 3 in the parking lot across
from St. John Editions, near the
V.I. National Park ball field.
"We're very excited about


taking over management of the
Children's Village," said incom-
ing St. John Rotary President
B.J. Harris. "Fortunately, a lot
of St. John Community Foun-
dation members will be helping
out to make sure it's as good as
always."
Children can expect the usual
fun games including the popu-
lar basketball throw and soft-
ball toss, as well as face paint-
ing and a ton of prizes.
"We've already ordered all of
the prizes, we've surveyed the
trailer and have started making
repairs where we need to," Har-
ris said.
More volunteers are needed


in order to ensure that the Chil-
dren's Village is once again a
success this year, added Harris.
"As always, we will be look-
ing to the community to come
out and volunteer to help run
the games, give out prizes and
face paint," she said.
Interested volunteers should
contact Harris at St. John Prop-
erties at 693-8485 or John Full-
er at 776-4752.
Rotary members are thrilled
to be part of such an excit-
ing island tradition, Harris ex-
plained.
"We're extremely excited to
be able to do this with the help
of the community," she said.

St. John Tradewinds
Lois Hassel-Habtes was so excited about her
school's steel band and I can see why they have
only played since December, they smiled and kept
perfect time while they moved with great rhythm
- their arrangements were perfect their overall
behavior showed that they loved to play.
Their ages averaged nine years each parent
made sure that their child's actions were totally
under control. I heard one mother say to her son,
"If you do that again, you aren't going to play."
Good for her!
Mr. Donadelle and Mr. Haynes are to be con-
gratulated on creating a wonderful steel band!
That discipline will teach the children self-respect,
the joys of creating good music with a group, and
the importance of rehearsals.
Congratulations to the other bands and their di-
rectors it was a great show!
Tradewinds Building Needs Attention
Last week's article about the conditions sur-
rounding this once-sparkling apartment building
brought many comments from residents.
The garden is dying, fresh paint is needed and
street people spend the night on the balconies.
There is a new person who oversees the manage-
ment, but where is he? We all hope that these de-
pressing conditions are corrected soon!
Public Works and Private Garbage
Collector Try Their Best
The garbage bin below Dolphin Market is pretty
bad, but Wharfside Village now gets the prize for
the worst bin in town! Boxes tumble into the street
- it's a lovely entrance to Cruz Bay from the
Grande Bay and cemetery area. Be sure and clean
up Cruz Bay beach, but who cares about the piles
of boxes and bags, and I have heard comments
about the new bathrooms at Wharfside actually,
they are quite attractive. It's funny, but the bath-
rooms in back of the Beach Bar area are dreadful,
maybe it's because there's no gambling nearby. Is
there hope for new clean bathrooms?
Naomi's Beauty Salon Opens
That attractive building across from Islandia is
now home for Naomi Hodge's Beauty Salon -
congratulations to Naomi! It takes a long time to
complete a three-story building.
Naomi, her mother, Mildred, and her sisters
were among the first friends that I had on St. John.
Her mother was very artistic and a great cook. The
large hand-worn straw chandeliers at Turtle Bay
were made by Mildred, and she was known for her
delicious cassava bread that she sent to the island
from Tortola.
When my mother spent the winter here, she al-
ways enjoyed having her hair done by Naomi.
Trash Cans Are Needed at Basketball Court
There is no place to dispose of bottles, cans and
paper. Would it be possible to put out at least two?
And the huge hole in the tennis court fence needs

mending these improvements will make a dif-
ference in our appearance.
It sounds as though I'm complaining about noth-
ing but trash but, it is important that our young
people learn to throw trash into a container not
just any old place.
Cruz Bay Photo Closes
We all will miss this great shop! Craig and Al-
ice specialized in helping those of us who have
trouble adjusting to the new cameras they cer-
tainly were "service with a smile!" Many thanks
for opening your back door when there were no
parking spaces. We're hoping that you'll be back
soon!
Congrats To Chamber of Commerce "Bill"
LaMotta Community Service Award Winners!
I never could have established the St. John
School of the Arts in 1981 without John Jowers
holding my hand through the whole process. For
many years after that, John helped me with yearly
grants from his V.I. Council on the Arts. Thanks,
John.
Stanley Selengut's wonderful Maho Bay Camp-
ground is known world-wide for protecting the
surrounding area's ecology and for presenting edu-
cational projects in the arts. Estate Concordia will
surely continue to do the same. Thanks, Stanley.

Selengut Honored with Wilbur "Bill" LaMotta Community Service Award

Business Community Honors Chamber of Commerce Award Recipients


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Fedora hats and feathered boas
were de rigeur on Saturday eve-
ning, May 31, at the Havana
Nights-themed St. Thomas/St. John
Chamber of Commerce Annual
Wilbur "Bill" LaMotta Community
Service Awards dinner at St. Peter
Greathouse on St. Thomas.
More than 300 guests, including
Governor John deJongh and First
Lady Cecile deJongh who is on
the chamber's board of directors
- enjoyed refreshing mojitos and
Cuban-inspired dishes during the
dinner dance.
Estate Concordia and Maho Bay
Campground owner Stanley Se-
lengut was presented with the pri-
vate sector award along with First-
Bank Eastern Caribbean Region
executive vice president Cassan
Pancham.
Selengut opened the 14-acre
Maho Bay Campground back in
1976, long before "green" became
a buzz word and polluting was de-
clared a sin. From the first 18 soft-
sided tents placed between trees to
minimize their impact, Maho Bay
Camps has grown to become the
standard for eco-tourism in the Ca-
ribbean.
Cutting down on the island's
waste, the resort launched a suc-


cessful trash to treasure program
where glass blowers create fine art
from used bottles and designers
turn old linens into high fashion.
Lately Selengut has been collabo-
rating with highly-trained archi-
tects to make the campground ac-
cessible to people with mobility
issues.
While the future of Maho Bay
Camps is uncertain since the lease
for the land is due to expire in
several years, Selengut is bring-
ing what he's learned about being
green over the years to his other
venture, Estate Concordia, which
he owns.
Consisting of about 51 acres,
Concordia includes eco-tents, a
yoga studio, a general store and a
full-service restaurant. More ac-
tivities and additional accommoda-
tions are planned for the resort as
well as extensive use of wind and
solar power.
Selengut was honored by the
award and credited the St. John
community with his success.
"There are very few places in
the world I could've done what I
do," he previously told the St. John
Tradewinds. "Once a small com-
munity like St. John learns to trust
you, they sort of let you try new
ideas and start working with things
like recycled building materials,

Award from St. John Chapter President Kate Norfleet dur-

photovoltaic cells, wind energy
and all the things that are a part of
tomorrow's world."
John Jowers, a past executive di-
rector of the Virgin Islands Council
on the Arts, was honored with the
public sector award. The non-profit
recognition award was presented


to the president of the Community
Foundation of the Virgin Islands,
Dee Baecher-Brown.
Ludence Romney, a junior at
Charlotte Amalie High School and
Future Business Leaders of Amer-
ica state membership vice presi-
dent, was honored with the student


achievement award.
Established in 1983, the Wilbur
"Bill" LaMotta Community Ser-
vice Awards honor both private
citizens and public officials who
exemplify the life of the former
civic leader and renowned Carib-
bean composer and musician.
LaMotta, who passed away in
1980, was a St. Thomas/St. John
Chamber of Commerce president
and a Small Businessman of the
Year.
The awards are presented to in-
dividuals who "exhibit dedication,
sincerity, forthrightness and ethics
in the performance of his or her du-
ties or in the practice of his or her
business or profession," according
to information from the chamber.
The student achievement award
was established in 1992 and the
non-profit award was added to the
program in 1999.
St. Thomas/St. John Chamber
of Commerce executive director
Joseph Aubain declared the night
a success.
"I thought it was a great time,"
said Aubain. "Everyone said they
had an amazingly good time. The
consensus that I've gotten from
most people is that the honorees
were great, they gave great remarks
and the food and music were great
- everything was excellent."

Three Love City Youngsters Look Forward to Shining at St. John Princess Show


By Susan Mann
St. John Tradewinds
A combination of natural beauty, poised
speaking ability, and athletic charm are sure
to leave judges scratching their heads about
which contestant to select for the title of St.
John Princess 2008.
This year's Festival Princess contestants
happily expressed their budding hopes and
wishes.
Stephanie Caraballo, a second grader at
St. John Christian Academy, said she very
much enjoys singing. The youngest contes-
tant in this year's pageant, her favorite part
of festival is having the chance to see all of
her friends, Caraballo explained.
The Christian Academy second grader
chose to enter the Princess competition this


year, "because it's fun and I never tried it
before," she said.
Alli-Yah Henry, a fourth grader at Guy
Benjamin Elementary School, said she de-
cided to compete for the title of Princess,
"because it's fun."
Henry also said she really likes to model,
especially in the swim wear contest. The
young lady is very excited about sharing her
surprise talent with the Love City audience.
Ja'Leah Stephens, a fourth grader at Julius
E. Sprauve School, said her favorite subject
in school is math and she "loves dealing
with numbers."
"I think its going to be fun and I never
ran before," Stephens said about why she
entered the contest.
Stephens added that she would be happy if


she won, but also stated her mother has em-
phasized to her that, "it doesn't really matter
because winning is just an extra bonus."
Two of the St. John Festival Princess
contestants hope to go on cruises with their
families and friends if they win. One plans
to spearhead a considerable shopping spree
with all the women in her family if she
wins.
The technological, creature comfort of
a new phone was on the mind of another.
There is no doubt that St. John Festival con-
test participation often brings a little fantasy
fun in to each of their lives.
St. John Festival Pageant Committee
Chairperson, Enid Doway, explained that
her favorite part of each year's pageantry
event is, "watching the transformation of


the girls from year- to -year."
Doway has served in this impressive role
since 1995. The 13 year time frame has
given her ample opportunity to observe how
the pageant preparation process influences
the development of the young ladies.
The St. John Festival Princess contestants
will compete on Sunday, June 15, at 6 p.m.
at the Winston Wells Ball Park. Adult ticket
prices are $12 if purchased in advance, or
$15 at the door. Tickets for children aged 12
and under are $8.
Pond Bay Development Company, Tropi-
cal Shipping, Inc., and Boynes Trucking
System, Inc. are sponsoring the show.
Advance tickets are available on St.
John at Chelsea Drug Store and W&W Fast
Foods. Good luck to each contestant!

SJCCC Offering New Safety


Net To Help Families


By Susan Mann
St. John Tradewinds
A new community resource will
soon be available for St. John citi-
zens who are truly in need of help
with rent, utilities and food.
Shelley Williams, Executive
Director of the St. John Commu-
nity Crisis Center, announced last
week that a new economic support
program, set to begin immediate-
ly, has been funded in the amount
of $20,000 by the Department of
Planning and Natural Resources
and the Virgin Islands United
Way.
Williams described the new
funding as "a community safety
net."
"The mission of this agency
here on St. John makes these new
service resources a natural fit for
the Community Crisis Center,"
said Williams.
The agency has been awarded
$500,000 in grants over the past
year, "due to doing a better job
with grant writing and over all ac-
countability," Williams said.
The SJCCC executive director
has particularly wanted to con-
centrate on internal administrative
roles since moving in to her job. A
total of eight individuals are cur-
rently employed in both part time
and full time positions, including
two community outreach and do-
mestic violence advocates.
The long-standing community
need for an adequately staffed,
renovated domestic violence shel-
ter to provide a safe haven for St.
John women and their children re-
mains un-met.
A major stumbling block in
making the critical service a real-
ity continues to be the long await-
ed $239,000 from the Department
of Humans Services which was
awarded specifically for that pur-
pose more than four years ago, ex-
plained Williams.
SJCCC is now preparing to pub-
lish a bid request in local newspa-
pers. In the meantime, women on
St. John who need a safe place to
stay in order to escape a violent
home setting are reluctant to con-
tact the center because they are
aware that the shelter has been
closed for some time, according to
Williams.
Other, temporary resources are
in place on-island to house do-
mestic violence victims, but un-
fortunately, the general public is
not aware that this is the case, the


SJCCC executive director added.
Community outreach and do-
mestic violence worker Zarah
Brunner is currently planning a
new support group called, "Sis-
ter Circle" to commence. Andrea
Hamm, a qualified expert on the
faculty of the University of the
Virgin Islands, will lead the meet-
ings.
The group will be more general
in nature than past support groups,
which focused specifically on do-
mestic violence, and other harmful
criminal acts, explained Brunner.
Another new agency effort, a
youth mentoring program which
pairs young people with profes-
sionals, is also in the works.
"A Girls Sleep Over" night is
scheduled for Monday, June 16.
All female students attending
JESS are invited to attend. SJCCC
is asking anyone who wishes to
donate food or other resources for
the event to contact Brunner dur-
ing normal working hours.
The Community Mobilizing to
Change Alcohol (CMCA) grant
award program activities will end
within the next 30 days or so, ac-
cording to Williams.
A public service announcement
is airing on local television stations
about the importance of keeping
alcohol out of the hands of minors.
Other media resources developed
through the CMCA grant here on
St. John will be made available to
the public in the very near future.
Williams is very pleased about
the fact that in the last annual re-
porting period the agency has pro-
vided direct "first time" services
to a total of 185 victims of domes-
tic violence and homeless citizens.
This figure does not include those
citizens for whom ongoing servic-
es are offered.
"I have grown emotionally a lot
in this job," said Willilams. "I was
not used to being attacked person-
ally and publicly in the newspa-
pers the way I was here. I have
learned to deal with that now."
The SJCCC has been planning
to relocate its offices to a new
location in Cruz Bay in order
to reduce overhead costs, and is
awaiting renovation of the build-
ing structure, prior to making the
move.
Williams announced that any
St. John resident in need of emer-
gency assistance with food, rent
or utilities should contact Joyce
Parker at 693-7223.

Post Office Trees To Be Cut Back


By Andrea Milam
St. John Tradewinds
Despite rumors that large mahogany trees at the
Cruz Bay post office will soon be cut down, the
trees will remain in place, according to U.S. Postal
Service spokesperson Monica Hand.
"The only thing being planned right now is to


shave back the branches of two mahogany trees
which are damaging the roof," said Hand. "That's
the only thing planned right now."
Large trees have been cut down around Cruz
Bay in the past to clear views for security cameras
and sidewalks, and residents raised concern last
week regarding the post office trees.


DLCA Releases Findings of Food Price Survey:

Dolphin Market is Best Buy on St. John


St. John Tradewinds
The Department of Licensing
and Consumer Affairs (DLCA)
last week made public the find-
ings of its monthly price survey of
items in a typical family food bas-
ket found in Virgin Islands grocery
stores.
On St. John, food prices for
22 items were compared at Dol-
phin Market and Starfish Market.
DLCA's survey found the lower
price for a typical family food
basket at Dolphin Market at a cost
of $82.32. The higher price was
found at Starfish Market at $85.75.
The Dolphin Market food basket
was cheaper by $3.43.
In this month's survey on St.
Thomas, grocery prices were com-
pared at Pueblo Long Bay, Pueblo
Subbase, Plaza Extra, and Food
Center. Of the 36 items used in
this survey, the price of the typi-
cal family food basket was: Pueblo
supermarket Subbase $152.05;


Pueblo supermarket in Long Bay
$140.27; Food Center $138.34;
and Plaza Extra $116.32. Pueblo
Subbase had the highest prices
while the lowest price for the same
items was found at Plaza Extra.
The cost of the food basket at
Plaza Extra was lower by $35.73
when compared to the food basket
at Pueblo in Sub Base.
DLCA Commissioner Kenrick
Robertson said there is no rational
justification for the vast difference
in price for the typical family food
basket among grocery stores in the
territory.
"For example, the price for a
six-pack of Ensure nutritional sup-
plement on St. Thomas is $25.19
at Pueblo in Subbase; $13.99 at
Pueblo Long Bay and $11.99 at
Plaza Extra," said Robertson.
"DLCA believes something is def-
initely wrong in Pueblo's pricing
structure, which is unacceptable to
consumers."


The commissioner urged all su-
permarkets operators to pay more
attention in ensuring that consum-
ers are being charged the adver-
tised price for their food items and
to correct any pricing mistakes im-
mediately.
"In addition, I thank those mem-
bers of the public that have come
forward to the DLCA offices with
complaints of irregularities at the
supermarkets in the two districts,"
Robertson said.
In these critical times of escalat-
ing commodity prices, DLCA will
continue to monitor prices with
vigilance, and the public they must
shop wisely in order to maximize
their purchasing power by shop-
ping at supermarkets which offer
the lowest price and the best value,
he added.
The food basket survey is con-
ducted in both districts monthly by
the DLCA Division of Consumer
Protection Services.

VINP Announces Hurricane Hole Storm Refuge Now Opening June 21 at 9 a.m.


St. John Tradewinds
The Virgin Islands National Park and
Coral Reef National Monument changes to
procedures for the 2008 system for utiliz-
ing Hurricane Hole as a storm refuge have
changed, again, leaving many boat owners
just as concerned about the new process
of securing what in many cases are their
homes, businesses or both.
Hurricane Hole will now open on Satur-
day morning, June 21, at 9 a.m. The previ-
ous guidelines had the storm refuge area
opening on June 28 at dawn.
All 78 chain sites, or "storm berths," are
marked with numbered floats. The park con-
tinuously monitors all weather systems in
the central and western Atlantic.
If a system is detected which could poten-
tially affect the U.S. Virgin Islands within
96 hours, the VINP will notify all boaters,
through whatever means possible, that Hur-
ricane Hole is open for use. At that time,
vessel owners may go to Hurricane Hole,
select an available spot on the chain or in a
bay and notify the park for a permit.
Open at 9 a.m.
If no weather systems occur prior to Sat-
urday, June 21, then on that day Hurricane
Hole will be open at 9 a.m. for vessel own-
ers to select an available spot and notify the
park for a permit.
Chain or other spots must be marked with
a minimum of one buoy with the vessel's

Tortola-based Moor Secure installed the Hurricane Hole chain system
using a series of seven foot, sand screws, swivels and one-inch chain.


name and registration or documentation
number clearly marked. VINP rangers will
be on hand to help with the process.
Hurricane Hole will be officially open at 9
a.m. on Saturday, June 21. The procedure on
June 21 will be as follows:
Mariners may use their dinghies or other
vessel to locate and secure a spot on the
chain or some other spot in Hurricane Hole.


Mariners must mark their spot with a float
having the vessel name and registration or
documentation number clearly inscribed.
Once you have marked a spot in Hurricane
Hole, you must contact the park in writing
and notify us of the location of your float.
You will be issued a permit valid through
early December 2008. Inspections will be
performed to ensure that all floats in Hur-


ricane Hole have a proper permit.
Chain berths are limited to 76 total: 15 in
Borck Creek; 18 in Princess; seven in Otter;
and 36 in Water. As in years past, permits
will also be issued for boats which do not
obtain a spot on the chain.
After all special consideration requests
were considered (as per previous press re-
lease), the panel assigned spots to several
vessels. These vessels have until June 20 to
mark their assigned spots.
After June 21, vessel owners may register
individually, or have their vessel registered
by proxy, during business hours (Monday
through Friday) by appointment through the
Chief of Resource Management, Rafe Bou-
lon, at 693 8950 ext. 224.
The VINP has updated the Hurricane
Mooring Use and Management Guidelines
for 2008 and these will be provided.
Please make every effort to work together
to protect your vessels and the unique natu-
ral and cultural resources of Hurricane Hole.
Please consider the needs or limitations of
other boaters and make sure that everyone is
in a location suitable for their vessel.
If you have a shallow draft vessel, please
leave the deeper areas for vessels with great-
er draft. Multi-hulls are better suited to the
ends of a chain or in the inner, shallow parts
of the bays, where there is no chain.
Vessel owners are reminded that tying of
vessels to mangroves is prohibited.

St. John Artists To Shine at Bajo El Sol June 13


By Elisha Auguste
St. John Tradewinds
An upcoming show at Bajo el Sol Gallery on St.
John will give Ivanna Eudora Kean High School
(IEKHS) students a chance to shine. The show on
Friday, June 13, will feature known artists from both
St. Thomas and St. John.
"I believe all my students perform well, but during
this semester there has been an increase in the number
of St. John students as well as in Ms. Fran Rutnik's
class, all of whom show talent," said Lisa Etre, head
of the Art Department at IEKHS.
One emerging talent was Ariel Millin, a senior at
Ivanna Eudora Kean High School, who "wowed" Ms.
Etre, her teacher in the Color and Design class, and as
a result of some of Ms. Etre's advice, won a scholar-
ship.
Etre suggested the Artists' Association of St. John
as a place where Ariel could complete her required
community service hours because she lived on St.
John and showed talent in the subject area. One day
while volunteering at the Artists Association, Ariel
created a picture of Claire and Bob Wilkinson's dog
(the managers at the Artists Association), and because
they were so impressed with her skills, they offered
her a scholarship to attend an art institution off is-
land.
In addition to Ariel, Ms. Etre mentioned other note-
worthy students of St. John, such as Jessica Millin,
Kurt Marsh, Kasieem Marsh and Kamaria Penn.
These students placed in competitions such as Carni-
val t-shirt contests, poster logo contests, the Congres-
sional Arts Showcase and others.
Some of the assignments Ms. Etre's students have
worked on include color scheme, elements of art (line,
shape, color, value, and texture), collage, printmaking
and pastels. These are some of the skills the students
acquired at IEKHS because there are no art classes in
the junior high school on St. John.
"It's been one of my concerns that the students of
St. John have not been receiving structured art classes
in the public schools of St. John," said Ms. Etre.

Livy Hitchcok explains the finer points of
pastel work to an IEKHS student.

Ms Etre gave the names of the local art institutions
for students who are interested in making art their fu-
ture. They include the Artists Association of St. John
and the School of Visual Arts of St. Thomas. She also
said, "You can pay for private lessons."
Ms. Etre's advice for artists, both young and old, is
to "draw a lot, draw different things."
"Don't be afraid to experiment," she said. "Keep
all your art in the best condition possible. Also, keep
photographing it and keep a record of it."
One student who had learned these lessons is Sha-
ree Miller, who recently won the Congressional Arts
Award and showed her work in Washington, D.C.
"Students are really hard on themselves," said Ms.
Etre. "But it's not so much the finished product that
you create, as the process and love of making the art.
You should not be concerned so much with what the
final project will look like."
Work done by the students can be seen on the
IEKHS campus in the library, teacher's lounge, bulle-
tin board, main office and outside the Art Department.
The St. Thomas Cancer Center will also be showing
some of the students work.


Renovations Begin


Scaffolding was erected and the sounds of hammering were in the air last week as

V.I. Humanities Council Honors IEKHS Art

Teacher Lisa Etre with 2008 Heath Award


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
The VI. Humanities Council
awarded Ivanna Eudora Kean High
School art teacher Lisa Etre with
its 2008 Heath Award for Teaching
Excellence for the St. Thomas/St.
John district.
Etre has been teaching in pub-
lic schools for the past 25 years,
with all but one semester spent at
IEKHS in St. Thomas. Even af-
ter all those years, Etre still can't
imagine doing anything else.
"I love art and I love teaching
art," she said. "The kids are ex-
tremely talented year after year.
There has been consistent talent
coming through the school."
"The years just went by and I'm
going strong," added Etre.
The veteran art teacher is dedi-
cated to fostering her students' tal-
ent as well as sharing that talent
with the community.
"The arts are incredibly impor-
tant to the development of chil-
dren," Etre said. "One of our goals
was also to get the art work to the
public and to have the community
see what the students are doing."
While sharing positive work by
the territory's youth is a motivat-
ing factor for Etre, she also un-
derstands the economics of the art
world.
"Being a working artist myself,
I created an art business with my
students' work," said the IEKHS
art teacher. "We have mouse pads
and gift cards with the students'
work and we've started selling
them. "
"Through the sale of their work,
we've raised enough money to in-


"We're always
screaming about
keeping the culture
alive but we have very
few museums and
no art programs at a
college level. A lot of
kids would pursue an
art program locally if
they could."
Lisa Etre
IEKHS art teacher



stall air conditioning in the studio
and bought some computer equip-
ment and other materials that we
need," Etre continued.
Extra cash from the sale of stu-
dents' art work fill in the holes of
funding left by the Department of
Education, explained Etre.
"The Art Department is really
not funded at all," she said. "We're
always struggling to get good sup-
plies and the better the supplies,
the better art that can be produced.
The community has been really
good and I always take donations
from people."
As part of the award, Etre was

presented with a $1,000 cash
award, which will help the teacher
take a much-deserved summer trip
with her son.
"If I win about 14 more awards
like this, I can afford a really nice
trip," she added.
Etre, who was nominated by the
IEKHS principal, appreciates the
award and hopes to increase the
exposure of arts in the territory.
"I feel great about the award,"
she said. "It's very nice to be rec-
ognized and very nice to be nomi-
nated by my principal. I wish this
will help establish an art program
at the University of the Virgin Is-
lands."
"That is my biggest cause right
now," Etre continued. "We're al-
ways screaming about keeping
the culture alive but we have very
few museums and no art programs
at the college level. A lot of kids
would pursue an art program lo-
cally if they could."
Etre's students have enjoyed
special classes this year with sev-
eral professional artists including
Livy Hitchcock. Their work will
be featured at an exhibit at Bajo El
Sol Gallery in Mongoose Junction
with an opening reception set for
Friday, June 13, from 5 to 7 p.m.
To support the art program at
IEKHS, call Etre at 693-8391.

blouses, swishing skirts, high-waist flare jeans, asym-
metric draped dresses and multi colored footwear are
some of the new looks this season.
Citrus block colors are definitely the in thing -
tangerine, peach, yellow, gold, citrus green, orange,
mandarin and lemon are the colors recommended this
season to spice up your wardrobe.
A great piece of accessory is a sure way to add that
extra touch to any fashionable ensemble. Over-sized
bags have been the trend but are now slowly being
overtaken by the always fashionable clutch. Large
statement necklaces and bangles add a sense of style
and make that fashion statement we all want. Fashion
jewelry inexpensive and stylish can add glam-
our to any simple style.
Ripping the Runway V.I. Style
The Miss BVI Pageant Committee recently staged
the 1st annual "Rip Da Runway" modeling compe-
tition which placed STAR Models of St. Thomas
against Entrigue Models of Tortola for six segments
of pure "fashion" battle.
STAR Models was represented by 10 of the US-
VI's top models including the reigning Miss USVI/
Universe Renata Christian and St. Thomas Carnival
Queen Contestant Aniska Tonge.
After three fierce rounds of competition, the heav-
enly rains came. The scores, however, indicated a
clear winner and STAR Models took home the tro-
phy. It was 18-year-old Colette Brown who capped
the title of Top Model for the USVI, a title she will
defend at next year's competition.


STAR Models is a newly formed full-service mod-
eling agency based on St. Thomas representing male
and female models between the ages of 14 and 28 in
print, runway and catalog modeling.

Karen Gerard Shoots to World Ranking

After Hitting Target at Italy World Cup


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Up and coming competitive
shooter Karen Gerard showed a
new level of skill with her impres-
sive scores at the Italy World Cup
in Milan last month, where she
broke Caribbean records in both
air pistol and sports pistol shoot-
ing.
In the air pistol competition,
which calls for hitting a target the
size of a dime from a distance of
10 meters, Gerard scored a 374 out
of a possible 400.
"This is definitely my best
score," said Gerard. "I broke all
of the Caribbean records and I was
one point under the best American
shooter."
With the 2008 Summer Olym-
pics just around the corer, the
Italy World Cup attracted the best
shooters from across the globe,
and Gerard who was 10 points
off the winning scores more
than held her own.
"There were about 130 womenin
the event and they were all Olym-
pians," she said. "I didn't win the
whole event, but I was close."
Although Gerard has not quali-
fied for the 2008 Beijing games,
she is coming into her own in a
sport she started competing in only
four years ago. The shooter almost
didn't believe her own skill at the
Milan competition.
"I thought something was wrong
with my target at first," said Ge-
rard. "It was just 10 after 10 and I
thought, 'I hope nothing is wrong
here.' I think all my training final-
ly just paid off."
"I just kept my head in the game
and it just seemed really simple,"
she added. "I looked at my score
when I was finished and I was
shocked."
Gerard also competed in the
sports pistol competition, which
calls for hitting a small target from
25 meters. The St. John shooter
raked up 553 points out of a pos-
sible 600 with the 22-caliber pistol
and smashed Caribbean records
again.
"I shot really well and it just felt
good," Gerard said.
The shooter has long been excel-
ling in practice shooting, but put-
ting up such high scores in a big
competition is a mark of Gerard's
improved skill and nerves.
"You really just have to fall into
this kind of meditative state and
stay into your game," she said. "If


St. John Tradewinds News Photo Courtesy of Karen Gerard


Karen Gerard takes aim at a recent competition.


you are able to stay in that state,
you do really well. If you think of
other things, it takes you out of
your game."
"I was always a hyper-thinker
and preparing for competitions
has been good for me in life and in
shooting," Gerard added.
The high scores propelled Ge-
rard to a world ranking of 52, and
she can now claim to be the best
female shooter in the Caribbean.
Competitive shooting is a fam-
ily affair for Gerard, whose hus-
band Ned is also an accomplished
shooter and will be representing
the Virgin Islands in Beijing in
August.
Although entering more compe-
titions is a sure way for Gerard to
continue her shooting success, a
lack of funds is keeping her side-
lined for the near future.
"I've had to take myself out of
competitions to send Ned to more
because we're not getting any fund-
ing," she said. "The VI. Olympic
Committee is funded by the VI.
government and the government
promised funds, but haven't given
them anything. We have not gotten
any funding and have been doing
everything out of pocket."
"It's more important for Ned to
get ready for the Olympics and in
order for him to be at the top of his
game, he needs to compete," Ge-
rard continued.
No funding is just one of the
shooting couple's problems -
there is also no where to practice
in the territory.
"We're still looking for a place
to practice," said Gerard. "We'd
really like to find a place to train


new athletes and also for us to
practice, but there are no ranges to
shoot on St. Thomas, St. John or
St. Croix."
"The St. Thomas range closed
and the one in St. Croix is a mess,"
she continued. "So unless we find
a place to shoot, sharp shooting
in the Virgin Islands will decline.
When we stop, the sport of shoot-
ing will dissipate because there
just won't be anyone else."
The Virgin Islands has a long
and successful history of sharp
shooting which should not be lost,
Gerard explained.
"The territory doesn't send
many athletes to the Olympics, but
shooters have made it since 1972,"
she said. "We really want to en-
courage people to get involved
with the sport and all we need is
a space 20-foot wide by 50-meters
long to set up a 10 lane range."
Both Karen and Ned Gerard will
head to Columbus, Georgia, at the
end of June to compete in the U.S.
Nationals and Ned Gerard will stay
another week to train with shooters
on the U.S. Olympic team.
After the U.S. Nationals, the
couple's next trip will be to Beijing
where Ned Gerard will represent
the USVI and Karen Gerard will
attend as her husband's manager.
If Karen Gerard's recent success
is any indication, however, she
will be representing the territory at
a future Olympic venue.
To make a tax deductible dona-
tion to the VI. Olympics Commit-
tee earmarked for Ned Gerard, call
the Gerards at 775-6126 or B.J.

693-8485.

Packers Win American Legion Youth Flag Football League Playoffs


By Paul Devine
St. John Tradewinds
Rams 15 vs. Patriots 0
There were five tough playoff
games played on May 31 to es-
tablish the league champions, and
what an exciting day of football it
was! Starting at 11 a.m., the Rams
met the patriots in what proved to
be a low-scoring defensive battle.
The teams went back and forth
but only the Rams were able to
get passed he goal line and took
the contest 15-0. Justin Duran and
Oshe' Feldman combined for a
score on the very first play of the
game. Andrew Barlas was tough
on defense for the Pat's as he had
four sacks on the day and a lot of
pressures but it wasn't enough to


stop a determined Rams offense.
Broncos 45 vs. Bengals 12
The Broncos came out flying
with three unanswered scores in
the first half and four more in the
second. Quazi Browne was hot as
he tossed for 6 TD's, 5 to Brad-
ley Fessale. The Bengal's scoring
came in the first half as Shakeem
Meade passed 2 scores to Mar-
quis Pilgrim. This win allowed the
Broncos to move up to the next
round.
Packers 25 vs. Rams 13
The Rams never gave up in this
game and were a tough opponent
for the regular-season first-place
Packers. Carson Wessenger passed
for 5 TD's which upped his count
for the spring season to 54. The


Rams offense was awesome but
the Packers were able to use the
talents of Wessenger who tossed to
four different receivers on the day.
Raiders 41 vs. Broncos 27
Nothing low scoring about this
game as both teams played wide-
open playoff strategies. Each team
traded scores with what seems at
will but in the end it was the ac-
curate arm of Aspen Moore for
the Raiders vs the scoring knack
of Quazi Browne. Most scoring
was accomplished in the first half
as the heat of the day slowed the
pace, especially for the Broncos
who played their second game of
the day.
League Championship Game
Packers 19 vs. Raiders 6


The Raiders had their hands full
with the Packers but played very
well despite having to play two
games in a row without rest. The
Packers had a 13 to zero lead going
into the half as the Raiders played
tough, close defense throughout
the game.
The Packer's preferred, patient
short game proved to work well
against the Raiders and the speedy
Packer defense covered well deep.
The Packers, who ended up in first
place during the regular season,
took the overall league champi-
onship with the Raiders gaining
bragging rights to second place.
Trophy Awards & Barbecue
Oppenheinmer Beach Pavillion
was the setting with more than 80
kids and adults sharing a beautiful
day, a barbecue and a wonderful
community spirit as the American
Legion Post 131 hosted the fourth
annual Flag Football Awards cer-
emony.
The fun was infectious and the
smiles abounded as the kids en-
joyed the water and the parents got
a nice break.
On Saturday, May 31, the foot-
ball parents hosted a barbecue sale
during the playoffs. All proceeds
went directly to the American Le-
gion fund for the purpose of pur-
chasing more sports equipment.
The parents hope that the
American Legion will continue
their community effort of provid-
ing sports activities for kids and
hope that baseball and other sports
will be forthcoming. Paul Devine,
League Coordinator, indicated that
the Department of Housing, Parks
and Recreation may be attempting
to start a baseball league for the
2009 summer activities.
"We are poised to get more
sports activities going and we
don't want to duplicate efforts,"
Devine said about the HPR efforts.
"If they don't get it going, we will.


I am keeping in close contact with
Parks and Recreation."
"We want to coordinate
with HPR," Devine added.
"I think we have a good relation-
ship and we want to work together
on all programs for kids."
Trophies were presented to ev-
ery participant, coach and referee.
"Our volunteers are what keeps
this league going and we are thank-
ful to the parents who support their
children," said Devine.
As trophy awards were handed
out, league coaches spoke with
great praise of each player.
"These teams are small com-
munities who work and play as a
dependent group, and the whole
community can learn from and
will benefit later from that early
discipline," coach Kent Wessenger
said.
The American Legion will be
hosting the 2008 fall league and
members expect the league to con-
tinue growing.
"We are not sure of the exact
date yet but it should be in Septem-
ber," said Devine of the upcoming
season. "We are always looking
for sponsors to keep football going
and if we do provide additional ac-
tivities, sponsorship will be even
more crucial."
Any company or individual may
donate to the American Legion
as a 501(c)(3) organization. The
American Legion flag football is
partially funded with a grant from
the Community Foundation of the
Virgin Islands.
"We would like to gain some
corporate sponsorships," added
Devine. "These large donations
to the American Legion Post 131
fund will allow us to advance our
funding for youth activities and
other initiatives."
Anyone interested in donating
to the American Legion fund may
call Devine at 514-6615.

St. John Tradewinds, June 9-15, 2008 17


Let Aubra and Dana Be Your


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Looking for a bookkeeper, event
planner or dog groomer?
A new business established by
Aubra Rush and Dana Heuschkel,
the Hook-up Girls, can do all that
and more.
Billing themselves as "true is-
land friends," Rush and Heuschkel
came up with the idea to start a
personal assistant type of business
- available for anything from
chef services to St. Thomas shop-
ping trips by following their
hearts.
"We just put out there what it
was that we wanted in a business,"
said Rush. "One of the big things
was that we wanted to help people.
I love the fact that this will be my
community service as well as my
job."
June 15 Yard Sale
The entrepreneurs will be host-
ing monthly yard sales, the first
of which will be Sunday, June 15,
from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in front of
Moses' Laundromat on Centerline
Road.
The yard sales exemplify one
aspect of the Hook-up Girls' ser-
vices what they call "St. John
recycling."
"We're calling it recycling be-
cause it's about what you have that
you don't use, but is still in good
condition and instead of throwing
it away, you give it to someone
who needs it," Rush said. "Wheth-
er it be services or products, we
hook people up with other people
who are like minded or have that
to offer."
Both Rush and Heuschkel have
extensive experience in a wide
range of occupations which made
it seem simple to put them out at
the public's disposal.
"The services we advertise are
things we can both do and between
us both, have done," said Rush.
"At this point, I'm not going to
open up a dog grooming business
but I know how to do it."
No Limits
While their flier lists such di-
verse services as tarot readings,
cake decorating and accounting,
the Hook-up Girls do not want to
be limited.
"We like to be creative and don't
want to be stuck in one mold,"
Rush said. "We want people to
think outside the box and know
that we have a lot of skills."
Another aspect of the business
centers around what Rush calls a
"mobile connection," and she's


putting her cell phone number -
690-5153 out there for every-
one.
"We are an emergency number,"
she said. "If you are stuck some-
where, either a local or a tourist,
and you don't have any other num-
bers, have ours. I know all the tow
operators' numbers."
"We're your mobile hook-up
board," Rush continued. "We're
available all the time and we're
just a phone call away. If I can't
help, I can find you someone who
can."
Rush hopes to eventually de-
velop a long email list which she
will use to connect community
members in need with people who
can help.
"Something I'd like to accom-
plish is to have people call me with
services they offer or things they
are looking for," said Rush. "Ide-
ally, when we get to that point, I
want to send out a weekly email
list of things people are looking
for and things people are looking
to unload."
St. Thomas Shopping
The Hook-up Girls are also of-
fering weekly St. Thomas shop-
ping trips, saving residents time
and money. The service is avail-
able for people looking for one or
two items or someone can book
the girls for an entire day, Rush
explained.
"We're going to St. Thomas
every week and those trips are in-
tended for people who just need a
few things," she said. "But we also
do buy-outs where we'll do a big
shopping trip and get everything
you need."
While the Hook-up Girls do
have set prices for small St. Thom-
as shopping trips, rates for most of
the services they offer are inten-
tionally not listed.
No Strict Prices
"Reciprocity here works," said
Rush. "Instead of setting strict
price lines, I open the doors to
whatever comes my way. We're
not limiting our business in any
way and people really do make it
right by us."
"But we also offer a lot of free
information," she continued. "A
phone call to me won't cost any-
thing."
Rush hopes residents program
her number into their phones and
eventually wants to be the only
number anyone would need.
"People should call us with any-
thing any question or any prob-
lem," she said. "If you want to help


Hook-up Girls

someone, give them our number. If
you are in a situation, at least you
can call us that's why we call
ourselves 'true island friends."'
To participate in the June 15 yard
sale, to be included in Rush's de-
veloping email list or for any num-
ber of services or products, call the
Hook-up Girls at 690-5153.

D Conch Shell

This version of a Conch Shell Blower represents the call to
freedom. The inscription "First in Freedom" is inscribed next to
the Conch Shell Blower who also is holding a cane bill. This
represents the Virgin Islands being the first jurisdiction
currently under the U.S. Flag to be emancipated from slavery
(1848 granted by Denmark). This rendition also highlights the
1878 Firebum in St. Croix and the first successful slave
rebellion in the Western Hemisphere on St. John in 1733. The
legacy of the struggle for freedom is of great importance to the
Virgin Islands considering that over three quarters of our
population is of African descent, the only state or territory
under the US. flag with that distinction.

D Three Queens
A geographical rendition of the Virgin Islands, which includes
the 3 major islands and an interpretation of the Three Queens.
The Three Queens are symbolic of St. Thomas. St. John, and
St. Croix. The Queen representing St. Thomas has an oar in
her hand symbolic of the maritime and mercantile tradition of
the Harbor of Charlotte Amalia. The Queen representing St.
John has a siidce in her hand, symbolic of plantation life on St-
John which Slaves successfully rebelled against in 1733, the
first such in the Western Hemisphere. The Queen
representing St- Croix has a cane bill in her hand,
representative of St. Croix as the agricultural center of the
Territory. The representation of the Queens also showcases
the pivotal role of women in Virgin Islands History.

Jack Henry Ferrigno, 8, Passes


St. John Tradewinds
Jack Henry Ferrigno, age 8, passed away unexpect-
edly from complications from a seizure in his home
Wednesday morning, June 4.
Jack spent his early years living on St. John, in the
U.S. Virgin Islands and then moved to Madison, Wis-
consin when he was 3 years old.
Jack was a true joy and inspiration to all who knew
him. Despite a sometimes difficult journey with au-
tism and epilepsy, Jack's spirit emitted great energy
and love. His goofy smile and infectious laughter will
be missed greatly as will his silly sense of humor.
In every person he met, Jack saw an opportunity to
say, "Hi!" or give a big hug; every dog he met was an
opportunity to make a new friend; every lake or pool
was an opportunity to swim.
He loved going to Poynette Elementary so much he
even requested to go on weekends and over the sum-
mer. He spoke proudly and often of his teachers and
friends there who made him feel safe and special.
He looked forward to riding the bus with Angie
and the kids each and every day. He loved swimming,
biking, computers, Sponge Bob, Barney, animals, air-
planes, camping and boardgames, especially Sorry
and Chutes and Ladders.
One of his biggest thrills was getting to take an
airplane ride on his frequent visits to see his father,
John, in the Virgin Islands.
He enjoyed looking out the plane window and
marveling at what he called "puzzles" created by the
fields and roads below and took great joy in spotting
a school bus from up so high. His unique perspective
always brought a smile to those around him.
The family is grateful to all his therapists from ICC
and IDS in Madison, to all his teachers and aides at
Poynette and Lapham Elementary Schools, to Ingrid
and Sally, and to Dr. Mary Dominski at Dean for all
their patience and perseverance through the years.
Each one of you brought something unique to Jack's
world and you have our deepest gratitude and respect
for what you do.
Jack, your little star burned so bright and it was


Jack Ferrigno


extinguished way too early. Our hearts are broken but
all the wonderful memories of your beautiful eyes
shining and your smiling face so happy, give us bit-
tersweet comfort.
Your unbridled exuberance for the little things in
life helped us all to see things in a different way -
Jack's way.
He is survived by his father John Ferrigno of St.
John; mother Kelly Straub; stepfather Norbert Straub;
and brother Nolan Straub of Poynette WI; stepmom
Jessica Ferrigno; brother Sam Ferrigno; sister Geor-
gia Ferrigno; "big sister" Brianna Murphy; "Uncle
Ben," "Auntie Jen," and Nicholas Service of St. John;
Elfie "Oma" Straub, Grandmother of Milwaukee;
Grandmother Jean Ferrigno of Connecticut; Grand-
parents Veronica and Henry Henson of Maryland; and
many uncles, aunts, cousins, Godparents, and special
friends too numerous to mention.
He was preceded in death by his brother, Cooper
Williams, and grandfather, Ed "Papa" Ferrigno.
A memorial service was on Saturday, June 7, at 5
p.m., at Hamre Funeral Home in Lodi, WI. Donations
may be made in Jack's memory to the Epilepsy Foun-
dation.
A memorial service will be at Hawksnest beach on
St. John, U.S. Virgin islands on Saturday, Junel4, at
11 am. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to:

retirement, he learned to scuba dive and to play the
piano. Dr. Brown loved the outdoors and in earlier
years spent hours cultivating papayas, mangos and
bananas in his garden on St. John.
Dr. Brown did many things, but he will be remem-
bered for what he was. He was kind and compassion-
ate, determined, disciplined and down-to-Earth, gen-
tle, smart, wise and witty. Above all, he was a loyal,
loving, protective husband and a generous, nurturing
and forgiving father.
He was preceded in death by his son DeWitt W.
Brown, III and eldest daughter Mary J. Brown. He is
survived by his wife Mary; daughters, Judith Brown
Fletcher, Wendy Brown Summers, and Carol Brown
Lukemeyer; and grandchildren William W. Fletcher,
Kathryn DeWitt Fletcher, Ben McShane and Sally
Rose McShane.

St. John Tradewinds, June 9-15, 2008 19


An Open Letter to Governor John de Jongh,
There is a crisis of energy which has hit our is-
lands and has hit us hard. On Friday, the 30th of May,
WAPA informed us that they are seeking a 40 percent
increase in the cost of electrical energy, with increas-
es for water consumption as well. This huge increase,
with its' serious repercussions, is making life for our
communities a hardship with no alternative solutions
in sight. We must do better or we may see many fami-
lies leaving and a loss of our economy from becoming
too expensive to live or vacation here.
I wish to urge Governor deJongh to consider estab-
lishing an Energy Task Force with Cabinet level influ-
ence to evaluate how we may look to the future. If we
do nothing, the WAPA increases will only continue to
grow uncontrollably. With an Energy Task Force, we
can search for solutions which do not come out of our
regulatory Public Service Commission and WAPA.
WAPA isn't looking forward, it is simply clutching
to survive. With an Energy Task Force our islanders
may feel that something is being done to protect their
homeland.
What can an Energy Task Force do? Here are just a
few suggestions:
1. Recognize and evaluate the crisis at hand.
2. Meet immediately with HOVENSA and renegoi-
tiate a better bulk fuel price for WAPA. HOVENSA
must realize that they are part of our islands and must
do more to help our community. The demise of our
communities by the burden of fuel costs is not benefi-
cial to anyone, including HOVENSA.
3. Explore renewable sources of energy now, not
later, and urge such development to begin immedi-
ately. We need to establish wind and solar projects on
each island to feed our lines.
4. Establish a local and Federal fund to help indi-
viduals and businesses afford to develop solar and
wind power at their homes and businesses. One plan
would be to establish a "mortgage equity fund' to help


Dear Editor,
Thank you for your page five education article in
last week's issue. Many of us have long been con-
cerned about the careless driving of the school buses.
I have heard that Tuesday morning, May 27, there
was a near head on collision near Coral Bay and I was
told that the (probably speeding) bus was very much
in the right lane and that there was significant damage

individuals and businesses to convert their power
needs towards being more self sufficent.
5. Establish energy classes and technical training
in renewable energy so that new business enterpris-
es may be created which will install and service our
homes and businesses with a new energy.
6. Demand that the Port Authority and the local
hospitals install solar and wind generators on their
huge roof tops and sites, servicing their buildings and
selling the excess back to WAPA. Such authorities,
like the Port Authority, should be encouraged to set
goals of expanding their renewable energy resources
by 20% per year.
7. Establish pilot projects on each island to explore
and develop renewable energy, for instance, in some
of our communities establish substations to have the
area get off the WAPA grid and actually sell power
back to WAPA.
8. Have the task force establish strict guidelines
for our government agencies to pay off their debt to
WAPA.
9. Have the task force solicit bids to sell WAPA to
a larger power entity with a plan that would include
lowering our consumption of fossil fuels.
Or, we could do nothing, and ignore forming an
Energy Task Force, with the end result being that en-
ergy costs will increase; fuel prices will escalate; food
prices will go through the roof; tourist services, such
as taxis, hotels and restaurants will become too pricey
for our competitive tourist economy so that people
will lose their jobs and our residents will be forced to
leave the territory in order to survive.
Governor deJongh, please consider establishing an
Energy Task Force. Your Cabinet has so many impor-
tant departments and commissions, surely such an
important reality as the cost of energy and it's affect
on our communities deserves to sit at the table.

SCPaws for a Moment


Communicating With Your Dog


By Bonny Corbeil
St. John Tradewinds
Good communication between human beings
is the key to success in most areas of life, whether
in families, community groups or businesses. It
results in understanding and emotional bonding.
The communication which we create with
our pets, especially dogs, is as important in our
having a successful, satisfying relationship with
them.
It is mostly non-verbal and consequently they
often become the best listeners in our lives!
Note the number of times your dog will turn
it's head in a questioning gesture which almost
says "What is it you are trying to tell me?"
How about the way your dog seems to know
when you are lonely and sad and need affec-
tion.
A dog's communication consists of
body language, facial expressions,
barks and tail-wagging. They are
keenly attuned to the non-verbal
level of your body expressions.
Remember as pack leader, your
dog's "job" is to "serve you,"
protect you, please you and
give you constant attention and
dedication.
The problem often lies in our
lack of understanding in how we
communicate to our dog as well as
understanding what it is our dog is
telling us back. This requires that we
understand our dogs when speaking to
them.
Dogs have the ability to learn many words. As
soon as you get your dog, start talking to him. It
will help your dog "study" and understand you.
It is helpful to use the same words. This makes
it much easier for your dog to pick up communi-
cation. Do the same with obedience words in a
confident and clear manner.
Always remember that the tone you use is as
important as the words you speak. Say the word
clearly and only reward your dog when he re-
sponds in the manner that you wish.
Simplicity is the key. One word like "sit" in
a strong tone which indicates authority will get
better results than a lot of words. Often hand
gestures can add another level of understanding
along with the word.
This is what creates the incredible loyalty
which man's best friend is known for and will
last a lifetime.
Barking is used to get your attention. Dogs
on short chains barking throughout the day are
saying one thing; "Please come and give me
attention...I am so lonely."
In some cases they may be barking to say they
are in need of water or food. Unfortunately, some
owners ignore these cries.


There is a difference between a "happy" bark
and a "warning" bark and you will learn this
quickly by listening. Your dog's dedication to
you is truly 24/7.
Your safety and approval is your dog's number
one priority. An affectionate pat, a scratch behind
the ears and loving words when your dog has
alerted you to a concern should be immediately
rewarded. Your dog is dedicated to pleasing you!
I recall an incident where Princess taught me
a great communication lesson. When she insis-
tently barked at someone coming up my stairway,
I responded to her emphatically by saying "No,
no barking."
Princess was obviously confused and slithered
away, but kept coming back to bark. I realized
that here she was warning me of someone
coming herjob to protect me and I
was responding with a "no."
I quickly changed my approach
to saying, "Good girl, thank you
4* it's OK," and rewarded her
S- with pats for protecting me!
She happily said hello to my
guest and went about her busi-
S ness relaxed and happy to have
done herjob. This one incident
made me realize how I needed
to understand her nature.
When it comes to other dogs,
your dog will be concerned with
your safety first. You may need to
demonstrate your authority so your
dog does not become aggressive.
Most dogs will approach each other initially
with a stiff-legged, tense posture with their tail
straight up. Direct eye-contact is one way they
"intimidate" with ears down. A show of teeth
means an assertion of dominance.
This should not be acceptable toward you, your
family or even other dogs. With proper commu-
nication your dog can be taught otherwise.
Fearful dogs will do submissive postures -
ears back, tail tucked and may show their teeth by
"grinning." This is a time to use reassuring and
cautious gestures to get a dog to come to you.
A playful dog will be relaxed and make it very
clear he wants to have fun!
When dogs interact, you will notice how they
sniff each other out. They are not being rude as I
often tell children. A dog's nose is incredibly sen-
sitive and by sniffing they are learning all kinds
of information about you or other dogs. It is also
their way of saying hello.
The fact is dogs are very intelligent as well
as amazing communicators. We simply need to
know how they "speak" and what it is they are
trying to tell us.
Please come by and help us out with dog walk-
ing. We are in desperate need of your time. It only
needs to be 20 minutes a day. Call 774-1625

thing is to go back and check your previous bills and
make sure you are covered for the period."
Many notices are being generated because the Tax
Assessor's Office is updating from a manual to a
computer system, Barry added.
"It was stated on public radio that many bills may
have been lost or misplaced because the Tax Asses-
sor's Office used a manual system," she said. "I've
gotten three erroneous bills for the same year. Go
down to the Department of Finance and ask for as-
sistance."
It's time for Tax Assessor Roy Martin and Lieuten-
ant Governor Greg Francis to meet with St. John resi-
dents, according to Barry.
"It's high time the Lt. Governor and the Tax Asses-
sor heard that St. John is not pleased that they lose
our records," she said. "We're not pleased that the Tax
Assessor doesn't come over to the St. John office."
St. John Residents Must Be Heard
"They need to hear that we are alive and we're not
pleased," Barry continued. "We can't stay silent any
more. They must hear feedback from us and we must
make sure our voices are heard."

VIWMA Urges Preparedness

During the Hurricane Season


St. John Tradewinds
In preparation for hurricane
season, the V.I. Waste Manage-
ment Authority advises resi-
dents to remove and properly
dispose of unnecessary debris,
waste and other non-hazardous
waste materials from around
their homes and properties.
VIWMA reminds the pub-
lic to refrain from disposing
of unacceptable waste, such as
batteries, tires, medical, liquid
or hazardous waste, appliances
and vehicles, asbestos, grease,
junked cars, gas cylinders and
construction and demolition
debris at the public disposal bin
sites. Many of these items are to
be taken directly to the landfill


or transfer station.
Items acceptable at the land-
fills and transfer station include:
appliances without fluids; ve-
hicles without tires, batteries
or fluids; gas cylinders that are
punctured or have the tops cut
off; construction and demoli-
tion debris in four-inch cubes;
and yard waste and scrap metal
reduced to four-feet lengths.
Hazardous waste, including
but not limited to medical and
liquid waste, fluorescent bulbs
and electronic waste, are to be
disposed of through a permit-
ted private waste hauler and at
a permitted disposal site.
For further information, con-
tact 776-6346.


Merchants Reminded To

Submit Price Lists to DLCA

During Hurricane Season


St. John Tradewinds
With the commencement of
the 2008 Atlantic Hurricane
Season, Department of Licens-
ing and Consumer Affairs Com-
missioner Kenrick Robertson
reminds all merchants to supply
the DLCA a copy of their price
list which details all goods and
merchandise in stock.
Provisions of the Virgin Is-
lands Code require the price lists
to be submitted on June 1 and on
the first day of each month dur-
ing the hurricane season, which
ends on November 30.


"Businesses, which stocks
goods and services necessary
for hurricane preparation and
recovery, are required to submit
this list pursuant to Title 3, Sec-
tion 272 of the Virgin Islands
Code," said Robertson. "Failure
to submit the price lists will re-
sult in penalties prescribed by
law."
Businesses should submit
the price list on St. John at the
Administrator's office. Ques-
tions about this policy should be
directed to Karen Stapleton, St.
John Coordinator, at 693-8036.
