Calabash Boom Residents Complain


of Noise, Smell, Sight and Safety


of Waste Water Treatment Facility


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
While completion of the moderate income hous-
ing complex in Calabash Boom is still about a month
away, the waste water treatment facility at the site has
already come under fire.
About 25 residents of developer Reliance Housing
Foundation's newest St. John project and nearby Cal-
abash Boom neighbors met with Department of Plan-
ning and Natural Resources Commissioner Robert
Mathes and other government officials at a Monday
evening, November 23, meeting at Sputnik in Coral
Bay about the issue.
Residents cited several problems with the sewage
treatment facility: noise; odor; safety; and aesthetics.
Calabash Boom neighbors and residents who live
in several apartment buildings adjacent to the waste
water facility complained of having to keep their win-
dows and doors closed due to the constant noise and
odor emanating from the area.
"People love their new apartments and don't want
to make trouble, but they are being forced to keep
their windows shut and their doors closed because of
the smell," said Antonette Badami who lives in the
area and moderated the meeting.
Residents also complained of looking out their
windows upon the open tanks of treated water.
"People who live there don't want to look down
into the tanks of putrid water," said Badami. "Hav-
ing huge waste water treatment tanks outside their
windows is unacceptable. The right thing needs to be
done."
Safety issues were also raised at the meeting. While
the facility is surrounded by a small fence, the gate is
often left unlocked, allowing easy access by children,
Badami explained.
"Initially there was no fence," she said. "Then they
put in a fence, but it's only about six feet tall and even
five feet tall in some areas. Every time I have been
there the gate has been open."
"Many parents are concerned that their children
could get into this area easily and it could be very
dangerous," Badami said.
There have been problems with the Calabash Boom
moderate income community's waste water treatment
facility since it first went online back in April.
"When it start operating it sounded like we were liv-
ing on an airport tarmac," Badami said. "We couldn't
sleep with our windows open. It was a constant noise,
24 hours a day, seven days a week."
Residents contacted Reliance Housing Foundation
president Robert Jackson and DPNR officials imme-
diately and got a quick response, Badami explained.
"We talked to Reliance and to DPNR who came
out and toured the site," she said. "They agreed to
build a make-shift soundproofing around the blowers
so that we would be able to sleep."
At that point, residents in the area were hopeful
that the problem would not last. The initial sound-

Residents complained of the site and
smell of the waste water treatment tanks at
Calabash Boom, above,

proofing helped a great deal and the developer also
planned to install a more permanent solution, accord-
ing to Badami.
It quickly became apparent, however, that the
problems with the sewage treatment facility were get-
ting worse.
"That is when residents started noticing a smell
in the area," said Badami. "I can't smell it from my
house, but people who live in the two apartment
buildings next to the facility said they had to close
their windows because of the smell. And then they
trapped the smell in."
Residents were still in contact with Reliance and
still hoped to resolve the issue before conditions
worsened.
"We thought this was going to be worked out with
Reliance," said Badami. "But then we stopped getting
any answers and people started to get nervous that
nothing would be done."
As the development neared completion, which
is expected in about five weeks, residents worried
that concerns with the waste water treatment facility
would not be addressed.
"Reliance is finishing the project and we if we
can't get them to address this now, how will we be
able to get them to deal with it after construction is
complete," said Badami. "The concern was that this
would just be left and nothing would get done."
While DPNR does not have authority to force Reli-
ance to build a structure around the facility, Jackson is
expected to meet with government officials this week,
according to Mathes.
"Mr. Jackson will be here after Thanksgiving and
we'll discuss the matter," said the DPNR Commis-
sioner. "We don't have the leverage as far as forcing
him to build an entire structure to enclose the facility,
but we could do some creative thinking."
"We'll do our best to represent your concerns and
try to convince him to do more," said Mathes. "We'll
try to use moral persuasion."

Government To Offer Ward Plea Deal in Cockayne Murder Case


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
A day before observing the third Thanksgiving since the
murder of her son, the mother of James "Jamie" Cockayne
was contacted by the new lead prosecutor in the retrial of the
case but it left her with little for which to be thankful.
In his first correspondence with the family of Jamie Coc-
kayne who was stabbed to death in downtown Cruz Bay
in June 2007 Assistant Attorney General Wilson Camp-
bell emailed Jeannie Cockayne on Wednesday, November
25, and informed her the government had decided to ex-
tend a plea deal to the man who was previously convicted of
murdering her son.
Following an October 2008 trial before V.I. Superior
Court Judge Brenda Hollar, Jahlil Ward, 20, was convicted
of first degree murder and weapons charges.
That conviction, however, was overturned in July 2009,
after the court discovered that prosecutor Assistant Attorney
General Renee Gumbs-Carty had not shared a key piece of
evidence with the defendant's attorney.
Ward was scheduled to face first degree murder and
weapons charges again in a December retrial. Instead as
the Cockayne family was informed the day before Thanks-
giving he will have the opportunity to plead guilty to
voluntary manslaughter, which carries a maximum of 10
years behind bars.
"This is my first contact with you, and I would like to
start by expressing my deepest sympathy for your family,"
wrote Campbell. "We have examined the case from various
angles, and we believe that the second trial will not mirror
the outcome in the first trial for several reasons. Consequent-
ly, we have decided that it would be in the best interests of
justice to extend a plea offer of Voluntary Manslaughter to
Defendant Ward."
"That crime carries a potential term of 10 years incarcera-
tion," Campbell wrote. "If the defendant does not accept the
plea offer, we believe that it will be extremely difficult, but
not impossible, to obtain a conviction at trial."

PSC Approves Reduced Ferry Runs Between St. Thomas/St. John


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Trying to get to St. Thomas? With run
times changing next month, make sure to
check the ferry schedule.
The V.I. Public Services Commission
voted last week to extend the current reduced
ferry schedule between Red Hook and Cruz
Bay. The public utility regulating body also
voted to reduce the number of runs between
Cruz Bay and Charlotte Amalie which will
offer three round trips daily, but at different
times before and after December 2009.
During a Monday evening, November 23,
meeting on St. Thomas, the PSC voted to
extend a reduced schedule originally ap-
proved in August for the Cruz Bay to Red
Hook run.
Instead of running hourly between 6 a.m.
and midnight, there will be no 8 p.m. or 10
p.m. boat leaving Cruz Bay and no 9 p.m. or


Cruz Bay to Red:
Hourly except no 8 or 10 p.m.

Red Hook to Cruz Bay:
Hourly except no 9 or 11 p.m.

Cruz Bay to Charlotte Amalie:
7:15 a.m., 11;15 a.m. and 2:15 p.m.

Charlotte Amalie to Cruz Bay:
9 a.m., 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.


11 p.m. boat leaving Red Hook, at least un-
til the end of December. The last ferry from
Cruz Bay to Red Hook will be 11 p.m. and
the last run from Red Hook to Cruz Bay will
be 12 a.m. midnight.
Starting January 1, the ferry schedule will
go back to normal hourly runs between Cruz


Bay and Red Hook unless the PSC takes
further action before then.
Downtown commuters will have a dif-
ferent schedule in December as well. Until
December 12 ferries will leave Cruz Bay at
7:15 a.m., 11:15 a.m. and 2:15 p.m. and de-
part Charlotte Amalie at 9 a.m., 1 p.m. and
4p.m.
On December 13, however, ferries will
depart Cruz Bay at 8:45 a.m., 11:15 a.m. and
3:45 p.m. and will leave Charlotte Amalie at
10 a.m., 1 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. The Decem-
ber 13 changes will be in effect until July 15,
2010.
Transportation Services and Varlack Ven-
tures have exclusive franchises to run ferry
service between St. Thomas and St. John.
Citing reduced ridership, both ferry com-
panies filed petitions with PSC in October to
extend the reduced schedules, which were
approved for the summer months.

Food, Wine and Inner Visions

Make a Great Flavors 2009

Rotary Fundraiser Nets $17,000 for Scholarships


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Take a dash of the finest wine, add a generous por-
tion of the most delicious food available on the island
and sprinkle with the sounds of Love City's own Reg-
gae superstars Inner Visions for a taste of what the
crowd enjoyed at this year's Flavors.
More than 300 residents packed the tents at Westin
Resort and Villas on Saturday night, November 21,
for the annual St. John Rotary Club fundraiser.
The night featured chefs from the island's most
popular restaurants sharing samples of their best
dishes and local purveyors offering tastes of some of
the finest wines and champagnes available. While en-
joying all that food and drink, the crowd also raised
money for a very important cause.
In one of the most successful Flavors to date, this
year's event raised about $17,000 for the local Rotary
Club's scholarship fund, explained Flavors commit-
tee member Katherine Steinbom, owner of KatiLady
Events and Catering.
"We raised something in the ballpark of $17,000
which is above what we've done in the past," said
Steinbom. "This is Rotary's main fundraiser of the
year and the money goes to our scholarship fund. So
far we've raised about $55,000 for scholarships and
have sent several children to college who would not
otherwise have afforded it."
A few tweaks to this year's event made it one of
the most successful Flavors yet and one of the biggest
differences was the winning categories.
While in the past there was one winner of Flavors,
honors were awarded this year in four different cat-
egories. Handing out three of those honors were local
celebrity chefs, who judged the participants. The final
honor was decided by the crowd, which voted for best
overall presentation.
The judging panel featured several winners of the
Taste of St. Croix including Josh Vilain, chef of Bac-
chus, Gregory Thomas, chef and owner of Galangal,

and Scott Bryan, chef and owner of Rowdy Joe's.
Love City's own Mat Vacharat, chef and owner of
Mathayom and the VI. Iron Chef, Keven Kueppers,
chef and owner of Robert's American Grill, and Ku-
nal Charkrabarti, pastory chef at the Ritz Carlton St.
Thomas, rounded out the panel.
Their job wasn't easy, but it was delicious. After
tasting samples from each participant, the judges
awarded Happy Fish with best appetizer, Rhumb
Lines with best main entree and La Plancha del Mar
with best dessert. The People's Choice award for best
overall presentation went to Paradiso.
"The professional judges and having four catego-
ries instead of one were the big differences this year,"
said Steinbom. "Also, this year the event was chaired
by people from the food industry so you had a differ-
ent Flavors experience. Normally this is a real stretch
for participants because of the timing, but it has now
turned into a friendly, fun food competition."
"There are people asking me already how they can
sign up next year," Steinbom said.

Students Set To Show Off Skilled Steps at Ballroom Competition


By Mauri Elbel
St. John Tradewinds
While some students are study-
ing for midterms knee-deep in
books, St. John students are brav-
ing the dance floor to show the
entire island the svelte ballroom
dancing skills they have acquired
over the last semester.


Dancing Classrooms, the in-
ternationally renowned dancing
program spearheaded by ballroom
extraordinaire Pierre Dulaine was
integrated into the fifth grade cur-
riculum at all three island schools
for the first time this year and will
culminate 10 weeks of lessons
with a lineup of celebratory events


and a competition.
"This is a chance for all the kids
to come together and celebrate
what they have learned," said Jay-
cee Gossett, program director for
Dancing Classrooms St. John. "Of
course everybody is a winner, but
this is a chance to showcase and
celebrate what we have learned


with the rest of the world."
The highly anticipated dance
competition will take place on De-
cember 11 at 6 p.m. under a tent
at the Westin where five couples
from each school will be judged
on their frame, rhythm, steps and
style as they compete for the gold,
silver and bronze awards.
"There will be three judges and
the teams will earn points through
dancing the proper steps, their
choreography and footwork, using
the correct rhythm of the dance
and demonstrating good posture
and good frame at all times during
the five different dances," Gossett
said.
Competing Couples
Three couples, one team rep-
resenting each school, will take
a turn on the floor demonstrating
one of five different dances -
the Merengue, Fox Trot, Rumba,
Tango and Swing during the first
round of the competition. For the
second round, each couple will se-
lect a dance out of a hat to compete
three couples at a time.
Gossett said the 15 competing
couples plus an alternate team
from each school auditioned
and were paired together based on
their performance throughout the
semester.
"We auditioned them and put
them with who we think needs
to be dancing with each other -
it's not about putting the two best
dancers together, but it is about
spreading out the talent or putting
two students together who maybe
didn't get along so they have a
chance to work it out," Gossett
said. "We aren't just choosing the
best dancers, but maybe who needs
this the most."
But it is not just the competition
dancers on the island are gearing
up for an exciting lineup of
dance performances are slated for
the coming weeks.
First on the list: informal dance
recitals at all three schools where
fifth graders will show their par-
ents and fellow students every-
thing they have learned during the

Dancing Classroom participants


of all ages will head to the Westin
Ballroom on December 10 at 5:30
to strut their stuff at a gala cel-
ebrating all the fun they have had
over the past semester.
"Students from all of the schools
will have a chance to dance with
the students from other schools -
some of these kids have never met
each other at all," Gossett said.
"The faculty teams from each of
the schools and the adults who
have been taking ballroom classes
at St. John School of the Arts will
also get out there and dance. It's
just like a big party, really."
The program director said Du-
laine will be on island to witness
the students' progress first-hand.
"We wanted to do something
other than just the competition so
we could all get together, dance
with each other and have a cel-
ebratory closing where the whole
island got to join in the process,"
Gossett said.
The transformation seen in the
students from the first class in Sep-
tember until now has been amaz-
ing, Gossett explained.
"Seriously, it is a miracle every
day," she said. "Such magic has
happened in this class."
One student who was the bully
in the whole grade now gets along
with everybody, one student who
started the year as an outcast has
gained a greater sense of confi-
dence and two boys who tried
everything to get out of ballroom
dance lessons are now some of the
best dancers in the program, ac-
cording to Gossett.
"This is the way this program
works," she said. "There is a full-
circle transformation that is be-
cause of the collective effort be-
tween us, the parents, community
and teachers that is what makes
this successful."
Though Dancing Classrooms
St. John was a pilot program, Gos-
sett said they have every intention
of keeping this going next year
and are hoping to spread the pro-
gram to St. Thomas and eventually
St. Croix.
"The goal is to spread this danc-
ing awareness to as many students
as possible," Gossett said. "It
broadens the children's minds and
gives them an awareness about
other kids on other islands and
places all over the world."

Family Requests Second Autopsy in Westin Suicide

Extramarital Affair, Fears of Being Poisoned and a $3 Million Estate


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Less than a month after officials
discovered a Massachusetts wom-
an hanging in her St. John hotel
room bathroom, the woman's fam-
ily is alleging foul play.
When Joan Baruffaldi, 45, was
found hanging by a bathrobe sash
from the shower curtain rod in her
hotel room bathroom on Novem-
ber 3, officials ruled the incident a
suicide.
Baruffaldi, a veterinarian and
mother of two, and her husband,
Robert Harris, 47, checked into the
Westin Resort and Villas earlier
that day and had been arguing, ac-
cording to V.I. Police Department
spokesperson Melody Rames.
"The husband indicated that
he and his wife were involved in
an argument and they were hav-
ing personal problems within the
marriage," Rames previously told
St. John Tradewinds. "I guess they


had been arguing all night and the
wife went into the bathroom and
some time a little later he went
to check on her, but the door was
locked."
After the husband called out to
his wife without getting a response,
he phoned the front desk, Rames
explained in early November.
"Resort officials opened the
door and found the woman had
hanged herself," said Rames.
First responders administered
CPR and Baruffaldi was transport-
ed to Myrah Keating Smith Com-
munity Health Center, at which
point she was still alive.
"At that time the woman was
in critical condition with a weak
pulse," said Rames. "She was then
transported to R.L. Schneider Hos-
pital on St. Thomas where she later
died. The cause of death will be
determined through an autopsy."
V.I. Medical Examiner Francis-
co Landron conducted an autopsy


and ruled the death a suicide. Last
week, however, the Massachusetts
woman's family requested a sec-
ond autopsy, according to several
news reports.
"She was five feet, six inches
tall and weighed 128 pounds; a
shower curtain rod would not hold
her weight," Baruffaldi's brother
Robert Baruffaldi was quoted in
the V.I. Daily News. "That is why
we have significant questions as to
what went on in that hotel room. It
just doesn't add up."
The way Baruffaldi was found
didn't make sense, the family's
attorney, Donald McNamee, told
Boston area news site wbztv.com.
"She was propped up against
the wall, feet on the floor, and tied
to the shower curtain rod, which
hadn't pulled out," McNamee was
quoted on the website.
Suicide was not something Ba-
ruffaldi, who has two children,
would ever do, her sister told the


Boston NBC affiliate News 7.
"No way, that's not my sister,"
Baruffaldi's sister, Mary was quot-
ed in a Boston News Seven web
site story. "She's the mother of two
children. She wouldn't do that to
my parents."
Baruffaldi and Harris, who were
wed in 2006, did not have a happy
marriage, according to both re-
ports.
Extramarital Affair
After confronting her husband
about an affair, Joan Baruffaldi
filed for a restraining order against
him, citing "that she feared for her
life and thought she was being poi-
soned," according to the report in
the Daily News.
Baruffaldi, however, withdrew
the petition and traveled to St.
John with Harris just weeks later
in hopes of repairing the marriage,
according to News 7.
After her death, Harris was
named temporary executor of Ba-


ruffaldi's estate, estimated to be
worth $3 million, and hired a de-
fense attorney to fight the family's
request for a second autopsy, ac-
cording to reports.
On Wednesday, November 25,
a Massachusetts probate judge re-
moved Harris as the executor of
Baruffaldi's estate and appointed
a special administrator of her will,
Boston Attorney David Eppley,
who was also authorized to order
a second autopsy of her remains if
deemed appropriate, according to
the report in the VI. Daily News.
As of press time, it was not
known if a second autopsy would
be ordered. Last week VIPD offi-
cials were continuing their investi-
gation into the incident as well.
Baruffaldi's death, and her fam-
ily's suspicions, have been closely
followed in the Massachusetts
press including stories run by local
NBC, ABC, CBS and Fox affiliates
as well as in the Boston Herald.

Friends of VINP Unveiling Online Auction Next Month


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
While the Friends of V.I. Na-
tional Park's annual gala isn't un-
til February 6, residents can sup-
port the organization next month
and bid on some exciting holiday
gifts.
Looking to jazz up their an-
nual fundraising effort this year,
Friends staff decided to change
things around a bit, explained Nor-
een Cavanaugh, the group's devel-
opment director.
"Rather than doing a live auc-
tion at the event, this year we're
doing an online auction," said
Cavanaugh. "Who wants to sit
through a whole auction when
you're at a party? So instead, we're
doing an online auction which will
run for 15 days from December 5
through 20."
"It's a great opportunity for
people to bid on some amazing
holiday gifts and support Friends
at the same time," Cavanaugh
said.
Prizes range from a two night
stay at Biras Creek in Virgin Gor-
da to dinner for four at La Plancha
del Mar. Family packages at Coral
World, dinner for four catered by
Mathayom and a necklace from
Freebird designed specifically
for the event are just a few of the
many other auction items which
will be up for bid.
To take part, check out www.
friendsvinp.org and place a bid.
Winning bidders will be notified
of the sale outcome after the auc-
tion closes.
Through the online auction,
Friends expects to reach thousands
of bidders, explained Cavanaugh.


"What makes the online auction so exciting
is that you can go online at your convenience
and browse the items and see what you want
to bid on."
Noreem Cavanaugh, Development Director, Friends of the VINP


"The goal for doing this was
multi-fold," she said. "I've done
work with other non-profits and
done online auctions that have been
very successful because you open
it up to people beyond the scope of
who is attending the event."
"So the community at large
and all of our members across
the country can participate in our
online auction," said Cavanaugh.
"What makes the online auction so
exciting is that you can go online
at your convenience and browse
the items and see what you want
to bid on."
The company which is host-
ing the Friends' online auction is
experienced in the field and will
also be opening some items to an
even wider audience, Cavanaugh
explained.
"The company we're working
with is extremely secure and repu-
table and they also work in con-
junction with 'Bidding for Good,'"
said the Friends development di-
rector. "Through the regular auc-
tion we'll be open to thousands of
people, and once some items go to
the 'Bidding for Good' sale, we'll
reach literally hundreds of thou-
sands of people."
Although the February 6 Friends
of VINP gala at Janet and Martin
Marshall's Great Cruz Bay villa
won't feature the customary live


auction, party-goers will still have
chances to win some great prizes
at the soiree.
"We're still going to have our
raffle for the people in attendance,"
said Cavanaugh. "This year we're
going to put baskets in front of
every raffle item. So when you're
buying tickets for the raffle you
can put your tickets in a basket in
front of what you hope to win."
"The idea is that people will be
more inclined to buy more tickets
because they're designating what
they want to win," said the Friends
development director.
With the new twists this year,
Cavanaugh hopes the annual fund-
raiser will rake in more than ever
to support Friends' educational
and cultural initiatives.
"Last year we raised about
$35,000 or so and obviously we're
hoping to raise more this year with
the online auction," she said. "I'm
excited to try something different
with the hope of success. Next
year we'll look for this to be even
bigger."
"It's a bit of risk doing some-
thing new, but we have a very pro-
fessional company we're working
with for the online auction and we
expect the sale and the gala to be
big successes," said Cavanaugh.

St. Ursula's Episcopal Church Feeds 100

Seniors in Celebration of Thanksgiving


St. John Tradewinds
St. Ursula's Multipurpose Cen-
ter brought together over 150 se-
niors from St. John, St. Thomas
and St. Croix on Tuesday, Novem-
ber 24, to share a meal in celebra-
tion of the Thanksgiving holiday.
Joining St. Ursula's were se-
niors from the Adrian Center and
Anna's Retreat and RSVP staff.
The event, emceed by Anna's Re-
treat Director Alecia Fleming, in-
cluded music, prayer, and a read-
ing of Dr. Martin Luther King's
1967 sermon "A Knock at Mid-
night."
Seniors heard from the Rt. Rev.
E. Ambrose Gumbs, Bishop of the
Episcopal Diocese of the Virgin
Islands, and from VI. Senators
Craig W. Barshinger and Patrick
S. Sprauve. Willis Fahie and his
guitar led the seniors in song after
song.
A delicious and abundant feast
was prepared and served by the lo-
cal staff of Starfish Market. Those
serving included store manager
Nedra Ephraim, Rory Reid, Keisha
Rogers, Rupurt Walters and deli
manager Doris Bridgewater.
There was also an unexpected
$1,000 donation presented by the
St. John Taxi Service to help the


Seniors enjoy a Thanksgiving luncheon at St. Ursula's


Multipurpose Center, above.


Center purchase a new refrigera-
tor. The St. John Lions Club sent
every participant home with a fruit
basket.
"We are all so touched by the
generosity and support of the peo-
ple and businesses of our St. John
community," said the center's pro-
gram Director Brenda Tyrell. "Our
seniors feel truly honored."
Since 1986, the multipurpose
center has been providing nutri-
tional, educational and recreational


services to St. John seniors. These
programs are made possible large-
ly through grants from the V.I. De-
partment of Human Services.
"These are historically difficult
economic times, and many fami-
lies are finding it harder and harder
to make ends meet," said Fr. Bill
Potter, vicar of St. Ursula's. "But
even with the challenges we face
as a community and as a nation,
we have so much to be thankful
for this year."

Enjoy Pure Pampering in Paradise at The Beauty Lounge


By Mauri Elbel
St. John Tradewinds
Whether looking for a quick mani and
pedi or an all-day spa retreat, Saphia Boynes
has created a salon sanctuary that promises
to pamper everyone in paradise.
"I wanted to create an environment where
any one could come in and enjoy an upscale
ambiance, feel comfortable and get servic-
es done in a timely manner," said Boynes,
owner of The Beauty Lounge Salon and
Spa. "You can do a spa day and receive all
our services in one day if you want, or you
can simply walk in on your lunch break."
Entering its seventh year, The Beauty
Lounge Salon and Spa is simply thriving
in its brand new location having moved
from its former spot above Sogo's Restau-
rant to a spacious haven on the second floor
of Mongoose I which opened its doors on
November 10.
"This is the first week we are opened and
we are already busy," Boynes said. "We
have grown tremendously. The type of ser-
vices I wanted to provide weren't working
at my old location, but we can now accom-
modate more people than any other salon on
St. John."
With four nail technicians, six hair styl-
ists, four massage therapists and two esthe-
ticians, The Beauty Lounge Salon and Spa
provides it all.
"We do everything," Boynes said. "We
offer all types of hair services and styling,
we have five different manicures to choose
from, four types of pedicures, acrylics,
massages, facials, waxing and body treat-
ments."
Boynes, born and raised on St. John, is no

Today, the owner has acquired a diverse
staff large enough to accommodate an array
of requests from accommodating private
parties to making a bride more at ease on her
big day by driving out to her villa or hotel
to provide services without ever having to
close its doors to locals and visitors seeking
services at the spa.
"We have a multicultural team of talented
professionals from all different backgrounds
and ethnicities," Boynes said. "I have one
girl who is German, a few stylists from New
York, some from California and others from
right here in the Caribbean. I am really hap-
py with my staff."
Grand Opening Party
On December 10, from 5 to 7 p.m.,
Boynes is inviting the island to check out
the new location and meet her talented staff
at The Beauty Lounge Salon and Spa's
grand opening party.
"Everyone is invited," Boynes said. "We
have 15 talented professionals that I want
the whole island to meet."
With free facials and massages on offer
while enjoying hors d'oeuvres, cocktails
and wine, those attending the grand opening
will have the opportunity to meet the spa's
staff one-on-one and the chance to receive
spa gifts.
"We are a multicultural, talented team,
and I want people to know we can accom-
modate anyone from walk-ins and large
groups to private and exclusive parties,"
Boynes said.

Christmas for the Animals Is Dec. 12


St. John Tradewinds
This year's annual gala benefit-
ting the island's only animal shel-
ter seeks to raise critical funds for
increasing operational and animal
care expenses.
The St. John Animal Care Cen-
ter's "Christmas for the Animals"
will be on Saturday, December
12, from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. at Tres
Vista Estate.
Through its fundraising efforts,
ACC is also striving to improve
animal welfare across the island
and dreams to raise enough funds
to one day build an improved,
self-supporting facility to provide
better care and add valuable ser-
vices to the community, like ani-
mal related vocational training, pet
grooming, dog training, pet board-
ing and more.
On the evening of December
12, residents and visitors can dust-
off their love beads and harness
the flower power of yesteryear to
help the animals.
This year's event begins at sun-
set and launches into a grooving
60s dance theme, complete with
none other than Preston Elliot,
performing with his new local
band, Illuminati.
This 60s/70s blues-rock band
will get those hips swinging, and
Preston's tunes will fill all ears
with memorable sounds that are
amazing to hear live.
And no love-in would be com-

Rhythm & Views

An outlook on young adult interests and concerns
by Afrika Anthony


Looking Back To Improve Future


St. John Tradewinds
Looking back on my life so far living on St. John
I have come to the realization that I have never been
taught some of the native crafts which have been
practiced here for more than a 100 years.
I don't know how to make a palm leaf basket, or
how to make a fish trap or much about the different
plants and seeds that we have here on the island. If I
don't know, imagine how many other children in our
community don't know.
Now that I'm older I know to ask, but it bothers me
that we aren't taught native crafts in schools. Sure, we
may go to Annaberg every year for a couple of hours,
but what are we really supposed to get from that?
The original traditions of the Virgin Islands aren't
taught on a regular basis so that they are put to use by
us youth. I don't want to come back here years from
now and find that no one uses a coal pot or knows
how to put bay leaf to good use.
I want the children in my community to know
about themselves, and in order to do that, they have to
know their own history.


As the famous saying goes, "You have to know
where you come from to know where you're going."
I want my generation to have some sense of identi-
ty, to not just be proud but knowledgeable about their
home. I feel ashamed when people who don't even
live here know more about St. John than I do.
I think that the younger people need to spend time
with the senior citizens of this island. They know
more than anyone else about the history of St. John.
It would be a great idea to foster the exchange of
knowledge between the young and old. I have spent
time with the seniors and asked them questions and
they are really fun. They have personality and are
happy to teach young people about the island.
It might be said that the generation of today is go-
ing down hill but maybe if we look to the past and
bring back some of those morals and values we can
change that. It's never too late.
These seniors may be leaving the world to the
youth, but they are still here today. The world is still
in their hands. So make a step forward today that can
change the tomorrow which looks so dismal.

Letters to St. John Tradewinds


In Awe of "Coral Reefs Stars"

Dear Dr. Caroline Rogers,
This past August my sister, Janet Foote visited us in Boston and
brought me a copy of "Coral Reef Stars" which contained photo-
graphs of nearly every underwater dream I have ever had.
I learned to snorkel on St. John around 1972. Jean Knight, a long
time island resident, showed me how in waist deep water. I nearly
drowned as I gasped in awe and inhaled half of Frank Bay.
This was the beginning of many years of underwater joy fueled
by trips to the Great Barrier Reef, Bermuda, and, last spring, to the
Andaman Sea in Burmese waters where we saw acres of healthy
coral very heartwarming!
I became a volunteer at the New England Aquarium in Boston
where I love sharing my infatuation with all things underwater along
with a clear message of how fragile this glorious world is.
It is simply thrilling (how strange that those gushing words actu-
ally seem an understatement), to turn the pages of your book. This
book is a most generous gift to anyone planning to visit the Carib-
bean as well as to those who wish to remember their visit.
Including a map of St. John and the location of where photos were
taken is, again, a most generous gift. Thank you, thank you, thank
you!
I'm wondering if you would have time for dinner (or breakfast,
lunch, high tea, cocktails, or a bag of popcorn on the beach) with us?
My husband and I will be on-island for just a few days arriving on
Thanksgiving Day and leaving the following Monday 11/30.
We would love to meet you, embarrass you with compliments on
your photos, talk about global warming/coral bleaching and get some
thoughts that I can use in communicating the importance of conserva-
tion to aquarium visitors.
Karen Richards

There are several points in Ms.
Adler's letter to the Editor regard-
ing the legalization of marijuana
that I would like to address.
Early on in the letter Ms. Adler
states that we are losing young
people "because there is no value
to life in some of their minds." I
don't know what this has to do with
legalizing marijuana.
If young people see no value to
life here, it is certainly not because
we have laws against pot use. Peo-
ple see no value to life because they
have never been taught what life's
true values are. They are not going
to find them using pot.
In fact, Adler's, organization's
own web site states "many trou-
bled individuals seek an 'escape'
into use of drugs: thus frequent
use of marijuana may become one
more in a series of counterproduc-
tive behaviors for these unhappy
people."
The second point Adler brings
up is the healing power of marijua-
na. The use of marijuana has been
legalized in some states for medi-
cal purposes. "Medical purposes"
is the key phrase here.
In reviewing all 13 state's legis-
lation for the medical use of mari-
juana the laws all go something like
this: "Removal of state-level crimi-
nal penalties on the use, possession
and cultivation of marijuana by
patients who possess written docu-
mentation from their physician ad-
vising that they might benefit from
the medical use of marijuana."
Approved Conditions: Cancer,
AIDS, positive status for HIV, mul-
tiple sclerosis, or the treatment of
these conditions if the disease or the
treatment results in severe, persis-
tent, and intractable symptoms; or
a disease, medical condition, or its
treatment that is chronic, debilitat-
ing and produces severe, persistent,
and one or more of the following
intractable symptoms: cachexia or
wasting syndrome, severe pain or
nausea or seizures."
Most states do require registry
documentation and the amounts
in possession are limited. In most
states these laws passed by the mar-
gin of from 52 to 65 percent of the
vote. Hardly landslide victories.
Adler goes on to say that people


use marijuana recreationally "with-
out any of the negative affects of
alcohol."
But according to National Insti-
tute on Drug Abuse "marijuana in-
toxication can cause distorted per-
ceptions, impaired coordination,
difficulty in thinking and problem
solving, and problems with learning
and memory. Research has shown
that marijuana's adverse impact on
learning and memory can last for
days or weeks after the acute ef-
fects of the drug wear off.
Adler then goes on to say that the
US has the patent on certain "can-
nabinoids" (chemical components).
There are 421 chemical compounds
in marijuana. Only 61 are unique to
marijuana. The proportion of harm-
ful chemicals ingested could, in the
long run, negate the effects of the
ones purported to be of medical
value.
The US holds a patent on the
cannabinoids because eventually
someone will find a way to synthe-
size the beneficial properties of can-
nabinoids in much the same way as
the production of a pill known as
Marinol. Its active ingredient is
Dronabinol, better known as THC,
the primary psychoactive element
of the cannabis plant.
"Marinol provides standard-
ized THC concentrations, does not
contain the other 400 uncharacter-
ized substances found in smoked
marijuana, such as carcinogens or
fungal spores, and is not associ-
ated with the quick high of smoked
marijuana."
Adler says that people should
have free access to this plant be-
cause it is a "natural substance."
What's next, Poppies? Poison
mushrooms?
Just because something is part
of our natural environment doesn't
mean it is good for us or safe. Shall
we try breathing methane gas?
Should we use poison ivy as a dec-
orative plant? No, they are harmful
in their natural state.
Changing the laws to allow "free
access to the plant" goes well be-
yond the idea of legalizing the use
of the plant for severe medical con-
ditions. Which is what the 13 states
have legalized it's use for.
Adler makes the comment that it


is used for the purpose of "being
lifted to a higher place of enlight-
emnent."
Going into a marijuana induced
stupor is not enlightenment. En-
lightenment comes from wisdom.
Wisdom comes from living, lov-
ing, sharing, feeling joy, feeling
sorrow, having courage in the face
of adversity, knowing when to let
go, when to stand up...
Wisdom and enlightenment can
only be of value when the journey
toward it is a true and conscience
one, not by running away into a
chemically induced "high."
On the other hand, I do agree
that putting someone in jail for pos-
sessing a couple ounces of the sub-
stance is extreme. More sentences
involving public service such as
hospice care, working with the dis-
abled and the mentally challenged
would go a long way to helping
young people reach "enlighten-
ment" about life's true values and
to recognize the things they should
be thankful for.
As far as the future of the Vir-
gin Islands? If lawful recreational
use of marijuana was enacted here
on the islands, be prepared for the
onslaught of drug users that would
make their way to the new "Drug
Paradise." The welcome mat would
be out for every loser that could
scrounge up enough money for a
one way ticket. Drug dealers would
stake out their "Plot of Gold" for
export.
So even though the drug itself
may be free (or cheap) the cost to
society would be far more difficult
to deal with in the long run. There
are already enough vagrants filling
up our park benches, why invite
more?
I agree that laws regarding occa-
sional, recreational use need revisit-
ing, and use in extreme or terminal
illness could also be considered but
let's not throw out common sense.
Let's be "enlightened" enough
to work for better, fairer ways to
deal with the occasional users,
get tougher on the dealers and the
pushers and most importantly take
the responsibility for our own chil-
dren and teach them to say "no" to
drugs of any kind.

A Closer Look at Medical Marijuana







St. John Tradewinds, November 30-December 6, 2009 15


Dear Commissioner Mathes,
I request that DPNR verify that the parking require-
ments have been met at the Grande Bay development,
St. John. Three years ago at a public hearing, DPNR's
Maijorie Emanuel cautioned Grande Bay that the
government was no longer tolerating the sidestepping
of the parking requirements specified in Title 29 of
the VI Code.
In response to DPNR's warning, Grande Bay de-
velopers added double-decker parking to the blue-
print in order to ensure sufficient parking would be
in place.
In response to complaints, I examined the park-
ing bays on the ground floor last week. There are no
double-decker bays. Please do an official inspection
of parking at Grande Bay.
Legislators do not have an enforcement role. The
executive branch, of which DPNR is a part, does have
an enforcement role. The role of a Legislator is to en-
act laws, appropriate money, and exercise oversight
of the laws.


I was the event planner for Flavors of St. John this
year. No small feat. I would like to give a special note
to those community volunteers that made this event
a success.
It's likely that I forgot someone. There is no slight
intended. Personal thank you notes will go out this
week.
Paul Kessock of West Indies Corp for his tireless
pursuit of participants and West Indies for their end-
less amount of financial support. Through their dona-
tions of printing, printing supplies, wine, champagne
and support of St. John in particular, we can not thank
you enough.
Kate Norfleet of Kate N Design. Kate is respon-
sible for every bit of graphic design that went into
Flavors. What a gracious sponsor you are.
Inner Visions put us in the mood to mingle with
their familiar sounds of our very own St. John Reggae
family. Thank you for being so available with your
time.
Alan from St. John Ice who keeps us cool every
year. Thank you.
Of course Connections, the place to go "when you
want to be in the know "


Just finished reading Issue No. 4 of St. John Maga-
zine and am feeling both entertained and educated.
Over and above the natural beauty St. John represent-
ed, I learn about the incredible array of artists concen-
trated on this one small island. It's awesome!
Clearly St. John is a place to come to be inspired


It appears that the laws regarding parking have
been violated, and thus I pass the report on to DPNR
for investigation and enforcement.
DPNR pledged to revoke the Certificate of Occu-
pancy if Grande Bay is not in compliance with the
building permit.
St. John residents know that over the years rules
were bent and even broken. This has created prob-
lems for us today, the most severe of which is a crip-
pling lack of parking in Cruz Bay.
We are aware that both DPNR and our own citi-
zens have created Cruz Bay's parking problem. Rath-
er than worry about whom to blame for yesterday, the
mood of St. John residents has moved to following
our laws and regulations today and for the future.
Please inspect Grande Bay and take appropriate ac-
tion. I request this as a matter of legislative oversight
on behalf of my St. John constituency.
Thank you.
Craig W. Barshinger, Senator-at-Large
28th Legislature of the Virgin Islands


A big thanks to Alfedo's for sprucing up the place
with their lovely greens.
Vicki Roda of KatiLady for her energy and great
ideas. Always ready to take the next step for whatever
is needed to make every event special.
Web from Buzz radio for keeping us informed and
Buzz Radio for donating a trip to Puerto Rico for one
of our winners.
Finally, Mary Heath and Carole Zarowny of Wes-
tin St. John Resort and Villas. Your professionalism
surpasses anything St. John has ever scene. Your
positive, "can do" attitude turned even the most try-
ing moments into successes. The Westin never fails to
support us in our endeavor to raise funds to send our
children to college. We are so grateful.
Why are these acts of kindness and support so
special? These sponsors are not Rotary members (al-
though we would like to change that).
Thank you for being part of such a purposeful
event. We couldn't do it without you.
Next year look forward to air conditioning and
more food categories. .
Katherine Steinborn, Rotarian
KatiLady Events, Inc.


and I look forward to sharing this inspiration in the
form of St. John magazine with our guests at Caneel
Bay.
Congratulations on another masterpiece.
Patrick Kidd, Marketing Director,
Rosewood Hotels and Resorts

Flag Football Scores & Standings

Raiders 22 Patriots 12
The Raiders were short-handed to open the game which al-
lowed the Patriots to take an early lead. The Raiders' Shakeem
Meade was able to come right back to lead at half time 8-6 via
nice pass and run to Meshawn Wilkinson. Both defenses were
tough throughout the game but the Raiders were able to hold the
Patriots to just one TD while scoring two of their own in the sec-
ond half.
Anthony Angol tossed two TDs on the game to Amoi Athanase
and De'Quan Cline. Meade accounted for three TDs two to
Wilkinson and another to Gregory Lewis. The two teams meet in
the playoff games November 27.
Packers 21 Broncos 18
The final game of the regular season turned out to be one of the
most exciting in the six-year history of the league!
The Packers came out firing and took an early lead against the
high-scoring Broncos. Andre Edward was on target and was able
to avoid the fierce Bronco's rush to toss two first-half scores to
Jalen Frazer and Abari Meade. The Packers also excelled on de-
fense holding the Broncos to no scores in the first half.
The Broncos were without their star quarterback Jay Williams
but understudies Jareem Fahie and Addison Rogers filled in and
tossed three scores in the second half and made great comeback to
take the lead late in the game 18-14.
Fahie hit R J Mathurin in the opening minutes of the second
while Rogers was able to find Doug Walters for two more but the
Packers would not be denied. With 11 seconds left in the game,
the Packer's Edwards found Tyler Stephen in a crowd at the two-
yard line and was able to back-peddle into the end zone for the
winning score.
Standings Final

Rotary Fundraiser Nets $17,000 for Scholarships


Continued from Page 5
From food costs to paying employees to work the
event, Flavors is not easy to participate in for restau-
rants, Steinbom added.
"It's a big financial drain for the restaurants,"
she said. "On product alone, each participant spent
between $500 and $1,000 and that doesn't include
restaurants having to close for the night and paying
employees to be there. Their contribution is huge and
Flavors would not exist without the restaurants."
With the Flavors Committee firmly rooted in the
food industry, planners knew what to expect and how
to help, explained Steinbom.
"I took extra steps this year to make sure that I was
there and others were there to help," she said. "If a
restaurant needed extra manpower, we found volun-
teers to help out."
Not about to rest on her laurels, less than a week
after the event, Steinbom was brainstorming about
how to make next year's Flavors even better.
"We're already thinking about next year and we're
going to add two new categories," she said. "We're
going to add bar food and mixology. We're also hop-
ing to combine our event with one that Paul Kessock
from West Indies hosts every year that features pur-
veyors from all over the territory."


"We're hoping to combine the two events to offer
the best food and tasting of wines that are not cur-
rently on the market yet," said Steinbom.
Flavors planners are also thinking of changing
the date of the event to not be so close to the busy
Thanksgiving week, Steinbom added.
"We're thinking of two weeks or at least a week
earlier," Steinbom said. "We just have to look at what
other large events there are to make sure we're not in
conflict and, if not, we'll try to change the date."
Along with all the accolades for such a great event,
Steinbom also heard a few gripes about the evening,
which she will be addressing.
"Every year the complaint that I hear, whether as
a participant or planner, is that we get all dressed up
in our best clothes and come to the tents and either
sweat or get bit by mosquitoes," said Steinborn. "I've
talked to the banquet manager at the Westin and we're
looking to use both of the banquet rooms so we can be
inside in air conditioning."
With the final improvements to Flavors, look out
for next year's fundraiser to be even better, Steinbom
explained.
"We're going to step it up a notch next year," she
said. "If this year was good, next year we want to re-
ally knock people out."
