JESS Promotes 12 Polished Diamonds in Annual Promotional Exercise


By Malik Stevens
St. John Tradewinds
Well-wishers, family, friends,
and esteemed guests beaming with
smiles filled the Westin Resort
and Villas ball room on Wednes-
day, June 16, as 12 young students
marched to "Pomp and Circum-
stance" in the 44th Annual Julius
E. Sprauve School Promotional
Ceremony.
With opening inspirational re-
marks by promote Loran Jackson
and the singing of the National
Anthem and Virgin Islands March
by second grade student Shikira
Smith and third grade student Len-
isha Richards, the ceremony was
quickly on its way as the 12 young
promises of the future were recog-
nized and congratulated for their
hard work and perseverance.
Mistress of ceremony Lecia
Richmond began the program by
introducing JESS Principal Mario
Francis who gave a sincere wel-
come to all and expressed his joy
to see the young adults move on to
the 10th grade.
Following the welcome was a
host of short speeches given by the
platform guests, who included St.
John Administrator Leona Smith,
Senator Patrick Simeon Sprauve,
Board of Education member Os-
win Sewer, Department of Edu-
cation Deputy Superintendent
Michael Harrigan, AFT President
Vernelle Delagard, as well as rep-
resentatives for Senator at Large
Craig Barshinger and Senate Pres-
ident Louis Patrick Hill.
Although most of their remarks
were under two minutes, they each


gave advice that students could
use throughout their lifetime.
Deputy Superintendent Harri-
gan urged the students to "pick the
best friends possible."
He said that "you can always
tell a person's future by the people
they hang around with now."
This message was amplified
with the words of Board of Edu-
cation member Sewer as he spoke
about peoples' "circle of influ-
ence."
He described the circle of influ-
ence as all the people who encour-
age individuals in what they do.
Like they say, "birds of a feather
flock together" and no one wants
to be a part of the wrong flock or
be influenced by the wrong people,
Sewer explained.
Guest speaker Julius E. Sprauve
School's Class of 1985 graduate
Stacie January also gave plenty for
the students to think about and use
in life.
January spoke about the im-
portance of studying, reading,
volunteering, and striving for ex-
cellence.
"Do what is right, not what is
easy," said January.
She also urged the students to
pay attention to the advice of those
before them because "nine out of
10 times they're offering good ad-
vice."
Awards and Recognitions
Like all other graduations, the
night was filled with many awards
and recognition. One recognition
in particular which stood out was
for the only female in the promo-
tional exercise, Amber Smith.

nition of the few young men in the
graduating class, Smith was asked

First Honor Student Aleek

dent Okyeame Brown were es-
pecially recognized for their hard
work and successes during the
2009-2010 school year.
Added to the many recognition
were those of the Second Hon-
or's, parents, teachers, and school

Marsh Graduates as Valedictorian

of Seventh Day Adventist School


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Christin Marsh graduated
from the St. Thomas/St. John
Seventh Day Adventist School
at the top of her class on Satur-
day, June 12.
Marsh is heading to South-
ern Adventist University in
Tennessee in the fall, where
she'll study neo-natal nursing,
which she was inspired to pur-
sue after a trip to Guyana last


year.
"The trip I took with the
missionary group to Guyana
last year helped me realize
that neo-natal nursing is what
I wanted to do," said Marsh. "I
made up my mind when I saw
so many people who needed
medical assistance and espe-
cially the little ones."
Congratulations Christin
and good luck in your future
endeavors!

GHS Class of 2010 Graduates; Vargo Is Valedictorian


By Jessica Samuel
St. John Tradewinds
The Gifft Hill School's Com-
mencement Exercise on Thursday
night, June 17, was in many ways
a christening of the school's newly
finished Trayser Field.
The graduating seniors, the is-
land's only 12th grade promotion,
kicked off at 5:30 p.m. at Trayser
Field under bright skies.
The GHS class of 2010 con-
sisted of 10 graduates Jernings
Abraham, Afrika Anthony, Monae
Clark, Deneisha Davis, Tristan
Ewald, Isaac Lalich, Shaiman Lal-
ich, Jane Miller, Autumn Orlandini
and Michael Vargo.
Vargo, a member of GHS' Na-
tional Honor Society chapter was
this year's Valedictorian. Not only
did Vargo succeed with his strin-
gent course load but he also posted
the highest SAT scores in Gifft Hill
School's history.
In the fall, Vargo will attend
the University of Miami, where
he plans to study biology. During
his remarks to his fellow graduates
and supporters, Vargo encouraged
his classmates to be inventive,
question things, and be different
- which he felt should come eas-
ily to them.
GHS Salutatorian Isaac Lalich
will be attending Regis Univer-
sity in Denver, Colorado, where
he plans to study visual arts and
physical therapy.
GHS Interim Head Ed Deuss-
er's welcoming remarks initiated
the evening's theme of change and
growth when he reminisced on the
whirlwind of change the school
had been through this year alone.
Deusser ended his speech with a
quote by Thomas Wolfe reminding
graduates to use the whole of their
talents in order to truly be trium-
phant.
Dr. Michael Reinert from Iowa
Sate University, who is directing a
five-year service project at GHS,
also gave remarks during the cer-
emony.
GHS alumni Evanna Chinnery,
who just finished her freshman
year at Berklee College of Mu-
sic, performed Miley Cyrus' "The
Climb."
The keynote speaker was in-
coming Head of School Judith
Chamberlin, who will take over as
the school's top brass in the fall.

Chamberlin expressed her ex-
citement of hearing "Pomp and
Circumstance" for the first time on
steel pan played by the Love City
Pan Dragons. She also praised the
school's sense of "collective pride,
community and steadfast beliefs."
Chamberlin concluded her


speech with a reference to Emily
Dickinson.
In a first for GHS, which will
uphold the tradition in the future,
student body president Afrika An-
thony gave a speech during the
ceremony as well.
Anthony expressed her fortune


at having been a part of the GHS
community which allowed her to
dream of attending college.
Interim Headmaster Deusser
wrapped up the ceremony by
speaking about what made each
student unique and special in their
own way. He then handed out di-


GHS Valedictorian
Michael Vargo

plomas and the GHS senior high
school graduating class of 2010
threw their caps in the air in cel-
ebration.
Distinguished guests at the cer-
emony included Board of Educa-
tion member Oswin Sewer, Sena-
tor-at-Large Craig Barshinger and
Senator Wayne James.
As the Chairman of the Commit-
tee on Youth and Education, James
conveyed his support of Gifft Hill
School being an alternative high
school for St. John students.
"As an interim [to an on-island
public high school], it is the next
best thing," he said.
Congratulations to all graduates
of GHS' Class of 2010.

St. John To Crown Its 50th Festival Queen


Continued from Back Cover
and Iran Hyndman, and Nanyamka A. Ca-
gan of St. John, a 19-year-old recent gradu-
ate of Ivanna Eudora Kean High School, is
the daughter of Abigail Hendricks and Brice
Cagan.
The contestants will be judged on the fol-
lowing six categories: introductory speech,
swim wear, a combined international wear
and talent segment, evening wear, im-
promptu question and answer and a personal
interview conducted the evening before the
pageant.
"This is an excellent opportunity to see
these young ladies at their best," Doway
said. "They have worked really hard in pre-
paring for the pageant and giving the audi-
ence an evening they won't forget."


Some of this year's contestants have been
entertaining the thought of a crown long be-
fore they filled out an application.
Cagan said she has wanted to be a part of
the Miss St. John pageant since she was 16.
"I saw this as an opportunity for me to be
up on the stage instead of on the sidelines,"
said Cagan, explaining that her mother has
been on the chaperone team for many years.
"From the time I was 16, I have wanted to do
this. I just wanted to wait until after I gradu-
ated so this could be my main focus. School
was very important to me and I didn't want
any distractions."
In August, Cagan will be attending the
University of the Virgin Islands to study
pre-med biology with an eventual goal of
becoming a pediatrician.


Born and raised on St. Thomas, Hynd-
man said she has always felt at home on St.
John and has been dreaming of participating
in the Festival's queen pageant for years.
"I've always wanted to do this," Hynd-
man said. "St. John is really a second home
to me I have family who lives there, and
I have been visiting St. John since I was
young."
Hyndman, a pre-med biology major, said
she wants to work in healthcare and return
to her native home to pursue a medical ca-
reer.
"My long-term goal is to be an anesthe-
siologist and I want to come back home and
definitely practice in the Virgin Islands,"
Hyndman said. "I think this opportunity and
experience will help with my self confidence


and help with my interaction and meeting
new people and just enjoying Festival and
the people of St. John."
Monsanto-Weeks also believes the pro-
cess of running for Miss St. John will
strengthen her personal skills as well as
help her to become a positive role model for
young girls.
"I wanted to do this to improve my so-
cializing skills, to learn the different types
of modeling there are, and to hopefully win
and be a positive influence for the rest of the
community," Monsanto-Weeks said.
Monsonto-Weeks hopes to attend the
University of Georgia and pursue her bach-
elor's and master's degrees in engineering.
"If I become an environmental engineer,

GBS Proves To Be "Best" Promotes 10


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Ten sixth grade graduates from the small public
elementary school in Coral Bay boasted the highest
reading scores in the territory for their grade level -
just one example of how Guy Benjamin School is the
best, according to school officials.
Friends, family members and well-wishers gath-
ered at the Emmaus Moravian Church on Friday
morning, June 18, for the GBS sixth grade graduation
ceremony. Fifth grader Raquisha Edwards acted as a
poised and well-spoken emcee for the ceremony, in-
troducing guest speakers and class performers.
In addition to the sixth grade's reading achieve-
ment, GBS also recorded the highest math and read-
ing scores on the fifth grade level as well, explained
the school's principal Dionne Wells.
"Our slogan at GBS is 'We are the best,'" said
Wells. "We pride ourselves on being a close-knit fam-
ily which works collaboratively to nurture and mold
students into productive citizens. We not only focus
on academics, but social growth as well."
GBS' many accolades this year are proof that the
school really is the best, Wells added.
\\ C \\ on tli 2009 ballroom dancing championship,
our basketball team won the EAST division champi-
onship, we've made our Adequate Yearly Progress for
2009 and we will for 2010 too," said Wells. "So when
you hear us say 'We are the best,' we are and we have
evidence to prove it."
Emphasizing respect for self, each other and prop-
erty, Wells had all teachers stand up and be recog-
nized for their hard work and dedication to their
students. Now it is the students' turn to set goals for
themselves, according to Wells.
"As you move forward, you must have a vision of
where you want to go," said the GBS principal. "Once
you have that vision, you can then plot your course.
You must remain focused on your vision."
Deputy Insular Superintendent Michael Harrigan


reminded the graduates that life will not always be
smooth sailing.
"There is no reason to ever give up," said Harrigan.
"You will struggle at times, but if you don't give up,
keep on fighting and give it all your effort, you will
come out on top."
While the ceremony celebrated the GBS class of
2010, it was also a celebration for a future senior high
school class graduation, Harrigan added.
"You are more than the class of 2010," said the
insular deputy superintendent. "As you leave sixth
grade and move on, you are also going to be the class
of 2016. Make it your number one goal to graduate
from high school and go on to college."
Senator at Large Craig Barshinger and Senator
Wayne James also shared encouraging words with
the graduates, before GBS valedictorian of 2003 Kurt
Marsh addressed the crowd.
After graduating from GBS, Marsh skipped a grade
at the Julius E. Sprauve School and then went on to
become student council president at Ivanna Eudora
Kean High School.
Sharing his key to success, Marsh encouraged the
graduates to persevere throughout their lives.
"Keep on keeping on in all of your hopes and aspi-
rations," said Marsh. "This is not the time relax and
back down. Don't lose sight of your main goal."
"Things won't get any easier for you," Marsh said.
"Your future is in your hands now."
Marsh congratulated his sister, first honor student
A'Feyah Smith before helping officials distribute di-
plomas. Also graduating at the top of the class along
with Smith was Aariyah Athanase, who tied Smith
down to the point for the distinction of first honor stu-
dent. JahHaile Bruce was second honor student.
Masaia Challenger, Kassahun Harris, DeLeah
Hodge, Alli-Yah Henry, LaTiah Jackson, JahQuan
Sprauve and J'zanee Matthias also graduated from
the sixth grade at GB S.
Congratulations graduates!

WESTIN VIRGIN GRAND VILLA OWNERS

/ Are you concerned about rapidly escalating maintenance fees
and special assessments?
/ Are you tired of getting less service for far more money?
/ Are you exasperated by the lack of transparency of
Starwood's management?
/ Are you aware of the loss of resale value because of high
maintenance fees?
/ Are you aware that owners who pay their fees are being
required to pay the unpaid maintenance fees of other
owners?
We are villa owners who want to prevent Starwood from making
more costly changes without required owner consent. We also
want to revise the by-laws, which give Starwood complete control
of the Board of the owners' association until the very last unit is
sold. And we want to elect independent owner representatives to
that Board.
We need the names and e-mail addresses of as many owners as
possible because Starwood won't disclose that information. If you

Contractor V.I. Paving contin-
ues to make steady progress on
the complete overhaul of Gifft Hill
and South Shore Roads, and work
is expected to be completed by the
contract's closing date, October
10.
Workers are currently finish-
ing up installing box culverts on
South Shore Road near the Westin
Resort, and will soon be installing
pipe culverts on the first switch-
back east of Chocolate Hole.
The new culverts are an im-
portant part of the project, which
aims to both fix the potholes which
plague Route 104, and prevent fu-
ture potholes from cropping up.
Culverts, swales and drains will
direct running water away from
the road's surface, preserving the
roadway and drastically reduc-
ing the amount of damage often
seen on Gifft Hill and South Shore
roads during heavy rains.
To that end, crews have also
been paving driveways along
Route 104 and even the Gifft Hill
School's lower school parking lot,
explained Department of Public
Works Materials Program Man-
ager Thomas Jones.
"We've had water actually run-
ning on to people's property right


"We've had water actually running on to
people's property right off the road, and we're
trying to eliminate that. We also paved the
parking lot at the school. The government is
not typically in the practice of maintaining pri-
vate properties, but because of the drainage
issues, it was something we had to do so the
new roadway wouldn't be compromised."

off the road, and we're trying to
eliminate that," he said. "We also
paved the parking lot at the school.
The government is not typically
in the practice of maintaining pri-
vate properties, but because of the
drainage issues, it was something
we had to do so the new roadway
wouldn't be compromised."
"I take drainage very seriously,"
Jones added.
Once the pipe culverts are in-
stalled at the South Shore Road
switchback east of Chocolate Hole,
crews will then focus on leveling
to ensure the roadway will guide
running water to the new swales
and drains. There is also a good
deal of road damage near Virgin
Grand Estates which needs to be
repaired, and a sidewalk complete


with handrails will be constructed
from the Westin Resort to Green-
leaf Commons.
Workers also must raise man-
holes and water valves before the
final coat of asphalt can be ap-
plied.
The 2.8 mile-long project,
which runs from the Susannaberg
Transfer Station on Gifft Hill Road
to the Pine Peace playground on
South Shore Road, is expected to
cost around $4 million and is being
funded by money from the federal
economic stimulus package. Work
began in October 2009, and DPW
anticipates the road reconstruction
will take a year to complete.
Motorists can expect one-way
traffic directed by flaggers or stop-
lights as work continues.

Four Female St. John Students Armed

with Barbecue Fork and Knife Arrested


St. John Tradewinds
Police on St. John arrested four
18-year-old female students who
attend the Ivanna Eudora Kean
High School on St. Thomas.
Arrested were St. John residents
Shanayra Chichester, Rochelle
Moses, Sephora Ferrol and Whit-
ney Bess. The girls were charged
with Carrying or Using a Danger-
ous Weapon; Contributing to the
Delinquency of a Minor; Trespass-
ing; Disturbance of the Peace and
Third Degree Assault.


Additionally, a 17-year-old fe-
male minor who accompanied the
students was arrested and later re-
leased into her parent's custody.
According to initial reports, at
about 3:45 p.m. Thursday, June
10, police arrested the students at
an Estate Grunwald residence. A
19-year-old male victim told po-
lice the five females drove to his
residence and asked him to remove
a post he put on FaceBook.
During the encounter the stu-
dents assaulted and threatened him


with knife and a barbecue fork and
threatened to scratch his vehicle.
The students attempted to leave
the area once they realized the vic-
tim was notifying the police.
The victim received fingernail
scratches on the left side of his
neck and right arm.
Bail for Chichester, Moses and
Ferrol was set at $1,500. Bail for
Bess was set at $2,500. The four
suspects were remanded to the Bu-
reau of Corrections pending fur-
ther court action.

"The program for the eco-
camps is designed so that the
campers have a lot of fun while
learning about the environment
through hands-on activities and
lessons," according to information
from VIERS. "The eco-camps are
presented to help each student un-
derstand a little bit more about the
environment in which they live in
and why it is important to each of
us as individuals to protect our en-
vironment as best as we can."
"VIERS and its educators will
help students identify what some
of their daily responsibilities are
in protecting, preserving, and con-
serving natural resources," accord-
ing to VIERS' information.
The first eco-camp will kick off
on July 12 and the last one will
wrap up on July 24.
On the heels of a decade of of-
fering eco-camps to youngsters,
Friends and Clean Islands Interna-
tional which manages and oper-
ates VIERS are offering a little
educational fun for older students
this summer as well.
For the first time this year, VI-


ERS is hosting a Ranger In Train-
ing camp led by VI. National Park
guide Jessica Hornbeck (see relat-
ed story on this page) for students
between the ages of 13 and 16
from July 6 to 9.
Another option for the 13 to 16
year old set is a five-day, four-night
science camp at VIERS where stu-
dents will enjoy hiking the lush
surroundings and snorkeling the
nearby pristine bays. The campers
will also get to know the workings
of VIERS' state of the art wet lab.
"The program for the science
camp has been designed to provide
hands on experience in a working
waterside field marine biology
laboratory," according to VIERS
officials.
But it won't be all work for the
science campers.
"There will also be time for fun
stuff," according to VIERS' web-
site.
Friends sponsors one camp per
student, so campers can enjoy all
the fun free of charge. For more in-
formation or to register check out

Registration Open for First

Ever Ranger in Training Camp

By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Armed with a grant from the National Park Foundation, V.I.
National Park guide Jessica Hornbeck is leading an exciting four
day camp to introduce Virgin Islands teens to the world of Na-
tional Park Service careers.
The Ranger In Training camp will kick off on Tuesday, July
6, and wrap up on Friday, July 9. The first day will be a day-time
session only, followed up with a two-night camp at the V.I. Envi-
ronmental Research Station and a final day session on July 9.
Open to students between 13 and 16, the camp is designed
to show students what a career in NPS would be like, explained
Hornbeck.
"The camp is designed for kids who have thought about a ca-
reer in biology or archeology or with the National Park Service,"
said Hornbeck. "We're going to show them what we do as biolo-
gists or archeologists today."
The camp will feature VINP's Chief of Resource Maintenance
Rafe Boulon, who will give a presentation outlining his field,
Hornbeck explained.
"Rafe is going to give a presentation on what careers exist in
resource management," said Hornbeck. "After that we'll walk
down to Solomon Beach for some hands-on lessons."
Among other activities, students will be asked to identify dif-
ferent sea turtle crawl marks and excavate a fake nest, according
to Hornbeck.
"We're working on a turtle crawl activity so students will iden-
tify which crawl is from which turtle and then we'll excavate a
fake nest so they'll have to identify that too," she said. "The stu-
dents will be carrying field journals with them and will take mea-
surements like width and length and other data."
In addition to brushing up on their sea turtle identification
skills, Ranger in Training camp-goers will also enjoy hiking and
lessons on astronomy, cultural history and archaeology.
Spending two nights at VIERS will allow students an oppor-
tunity to fully develop their sense of stewardship for the environ-
ment, according to information from VIERS.
T%\ o overnight stays at VIERS will provide students with the
opportunity to be immersed in a natural setting while learning
about the park and its resources," according to the group's web-
site www.viers.org. "This will provide a greater understanding of
knowledge gained during this camp and enhance resource stew-
ardship by strengthening the bond between the student and their
island and Virgin Islands National Park."
The camp is free of charge and there are 12 spaces open for
students. To register, download an application at www.viers.org.
VIERS' fax machine is currently not functioning so call the
research station at 776-6721.

Jerry Runyon Takes Home Two Gold


Medals from National Veterans Games


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Jerry Runyon owned the pool
for the third year in at row at the
2010 National Veterans Golden
Age Games.
Runyon took gold in the 50 yard
back stroke as well as the 50 yard
freestyle in the 70 to 74 age group
during last month's senior veter-
an's competition May 26 to 31 in
Des Moines, Iowa.
The 72-year-old swimmer fin-
ished the 50 yard freestyle in 39
seconds and the back stroke in 48
seconds, leaving the rest of the
competitors in his wake.
Runyon also took home an
award for taking part in the kay-
ak exhibition, led by Team River
Runner director Joe Mornii, who
is no stranger to St. John himself.
Mornii who has watched the
adaptive kayak therapy program
he launched at Walter Reed Army
Medical Center in 2004 grow into
a country-wide movement has
led several groups of veterans on
adaptive kayak trips to Love City
over the past few years.
Last month, Mornin brought

kayaks to the National Veterans
Golden Age Games for the first
time and introduced the sport to
the group.
"Mornini brought the kayaks to
the games to get people interested


to start competing next year," said
Runyon. "I joined the group and
got lessons and we all got medals
for taking part. The kayak was fan-
tastic."
"I didn't even tip over this
time," Runyon said. "We were out
in the lake and did a 900-foot run.
It was really fun."
The games drew a record atten-
dance of almost 800 veterans who
competed in sports from golf to
shot put.
Runyon makes the games an
annual trip in order to spend time
with fellow veterans.
"I think really most of it is meet-
ing my fellow veterans I served
with and also to meet new veterans
and help them out," said Runyon.
The week-long event is chock
full of dinners, dances and socials
for veterans to get to know each
other, have fun and support their
health.
Runyon's success at the veterans
games last month qualified him for
the National Senior Games, which
he's thinking about entering.
"If I shave five seconds off my
time, I'll do it," he said.

NOAA Is Hosting Coral Reef

Workshop Set for June 7 to 9


St. John Tradewinds
A workshop sponsored by
the National Oceanic and Atmo-
spheric Administration's Coral
Reef Conservation Program was
hosted at the Westin Resort and
Villas June 7 through 9.
This workshop was organized
and led by Dana Wusinick-
Mendez of NOAA-Coral Reef
Conservation Program/Atlantic-
Caribbean Management Liai-
son; Paige Rothenberger of the
Department of Planning and
Natural Resources' division of
Coastal Zone Management; and
was facilitated by Mark Ama-
ral from Lighthouse Consulting
Group from Rhode Island.
The purpose of the workshop
was to develop local action strat-
egies to achieve a stable, sustain-
able coral reef ecosystem within
the next five to seven years.
Prior to this workshop, four
priority sites were identified by
a team of representatives from
various areas within NOAA,
DPNR, University of the Virgin


Islands, VI National Park Ser-
vice and others from various sci-
entific and conservation groups.
Based on four weighted fac-
tors: management effectiveness;
ability to achieve priority goals
and objectives from a workshop;
biological value; and the degree
of risk and threat Fish Bay,
Coral Bay, the St. Thomas East
End Reserve and the St. Croix
East End Marine Park were
identified for coral reef conser-
vation.
Terry Pishko and Mary Mo-
roney represented Fish Bay
at the workshop to lend their
knowledge and input of the area
and to the process of developing
specific and time-bound goals
and objectives to address reef
conservation. Representatives
from Coral Bay were also on
hand to provide their input.
A final report is expected to
be released sometime this Fall,
which will include the next steps
need to move forward on the
goals developed.

Graduation on the Brain


By Malik Stevens
St. John Tradewinds
With the oil spill terrorizing the
Gulf of Mexico, temperatures rap-
idly on the rise and everyone out
and about finalizing their summer
plans, it is easy to lose track of
time and to neglect paying atten-
tion to the smaller things in life.
One of these things, not neces-
sarily smaller, but often not rec-
ognized for its true importance, is
the graduation ceremonies for our
young men and women.
June marks the month when
most of our Virgin Island senior
class students receive their di-
plomas and begin a new journey
in life. Graduation is a hallmark
in the lives of youth as they take
a step further into adulthood. Al-
though graduation is such a vital
time in the young people's lives, it
is often times overlooked.
In a current commercial on tele-
vision, President Barack Obama
brings to light one of the big prob-
lems the United States faces its
high school graduation rate.
Obama talks about the impor-
tance of graduating high school,
reminding the audience that one in
five U.S. seniors this year will not
graduate.
After viewing this commer-
cial, I was left thinking about two
things. "How can we lower this
percentage?" and "Why don't we
celebrate more for the four out of
five students who will graduate?"
Too often do these seniors grad-
uate and are not congratulated for
the milestone achievement, and
are later forgotten after it happens.
Let us start finding ways to
make graduation more appealing
to that 20 percent of students not
graduating. Let us hold them more
accountable, and help them see the
importance of it all.
Most of all, let us show those
four in five students taking that
step forward in life that we do care
and we think what they are doing
is very important and is not going
unrecognized.
Pushing Forward
After Graduation
By now, most of us already
know that the economic value of
a high school diploma has dimin-
ished over the years. With college
education, trade schools, and other

possibilities for furthering one's
education becoming more acces-
sible, the work force is becoming
much more competitive.
This is why we should urge all
of our graduates to do something
of meaning after graduation. This
doesn't have to mean going back
to school, but that would be wise.
But there are other things, like
internships and trade schools, that
can really help a young adult as
well, not just in growing educa-
tionally, but also by becoming a
more successful adult.
Although these things might
leave us with bills at the end of the
day, they help us grow as people
and they make living life in the
future and finding a decent job a
whole lot easier. On the other hand,
leaving high school and heading
straight into the work force is a
way to almost guarantee a limited
life.
With positive encouragement
and guidance, more of our stu-
dents will not only be finishing
high school, but also heading to
institutions of higher education,
where they will be able to gain
knowledge and learn skills that
will help them in the future.
My Graduation Experience
It is a hard to believe that it has
already been a year since I was in
the same position as seniors to-
day, about to graduate from high
school. Even as a student at the
time looking forward to heading
off to Georgetown University in
the fall, this time of the year was
still nerve-racking for me.
I felt so lost. It was one of those
bittersweet moments we all talk


about in life. I was happy to go,
but at the same time, sad to leave.
I remember sitting in my seat
as the Valedictorian of Gifft Hill
School with my thoughts running
a million miles per hour. "What do
I do next?" "What if I don't like
college?" "Am I ready for all of
this?"
I also remember thinking about
how much I was going to miss
high school, which triggered me
to think further about how much I
was going to miss childhood as a
whole.
Although many of us students
put on a front and boast about
now being grown because we
have graduated, some, including
myself, will admit that it is a very
scary transition.
While I was a nervous and it
was all a bit scary, it was the many
people who told me congratula-
tions, gave me advice, told me to
stay focused, and really showed
that they cared that I was doing
something important which made
the transition easier.
Through this experience, as
well as many others in life, I have
realized the impact of words. En-
couraging words have helped me
through many of my educational
endeavors, and I know they can for
many others as well.
Show students we do care and
that we do recognize their hard
work and accomplishments be-
cause, although the economic val-
ue of a high school diploma may
be diminished, the true value of
completing high school has not.
To all of you, congratulations,
good luck and stay focused!

Native Texan Courtney Wright Joins

RE/MAX Island Paradise Realty


By Mauri Elbel
St. John Tradewinds
RE/MAX Island Paradise Re-
alty has recently added a new
face to its real estate sales team.
Courtney Wright, who moved
from Texas to St. John with her
husband just over a year ago,
completed her real estate exam
in March and received her li-
cense just last week.
"I've been working with Di-
ana Beam for approximately a
year now," Wright said. "I start-
ed last June and I have worked
as her assistant while pursing
my license."
Prior to moving to St. John,
Wright worked in the mortgage
industry financing home loans
for five years and in corporate
outside sales for nearly four
years. But she said she was al-
ways interested in real estate,
and from the time she and her
then fiance set foot on St. John,
she knew where she wanted to
pursue her new career.
"We came to St. John on va-
cation after we got engaged and
fell in love with the island and
decided to move here after we


Courtney Wright


got married," Wright said. "So
basically a week after we were
married, we packed up every-
thing, moved here and started
our new life."
Wright immediately began
pursuing her real estate license
while her husband opened Cac-
tus on the Blue in the former
Stone Terrace location last No-
vember.
"I feel like every thing just fell
into place," Wright said. "And I
really feel we are accomplishing
every thing we wanted to do."


Now that Wright has earned
her sales agent license, she is
looking forward to putting all of
the real estate training and men-
toring she has received over the
past year to the test.
"I feel very lucky to have
joined RE/MAX, and I think it
has been great that I have had
Diana Beam as my mentor,"
she said. "I feel I have learned
so much in the last year that has
given me the tools to be success-
ful in selling real estate on St.
John."
Wright is not the only one ex-
cited about joining the island's
RE/MAX office located in Mon-
goose Junction. Broker/owner
Diana Beam said she is elated
Wright is joining fellow sales
agent Jared Warren.
"I am thrilled to have Court-
ney on our team and I am look-
ing forward to getting her out
there now that she finally has
her license," Beam said. "Peo-
ple are going to absolutely love
working with Courtney she is
extremely knowledgeable, hard-
working and enthusiastic about
everything she does."


Proposed 2011 Executive Budget Available


St. John Tradewinds
Senate President Louis Patrick Hill has placed the
Governor's proposed 2011 Executive Budget on the
legislative website, www.legvi.org, for easy viewing
by everyone.
"It is critical for all Virgin Islands residents to fol-
low the budget process, especially with the all-around
approach being taken to stabilize our economy under
the current financial challenges," Hill said. "The bud-
get book is replete with descriptions of funds, listing


of appropriation bills, enabling legislation, as well as
the organizational structure of all three branches of
government."
"Knowledge is the key to understanding the opera-
tion of our government and the public has the right
to follow the actions of those whom they elect," said
Hill.
The senator went on to say that no Virgin Islander
should miss the opportunity to review the budget that
is being proposed for them.

year, one of the company's restaurants has
emerged with invigorated menu options, in-
spired chefs and enticing libations.
Perched above Cruz Bay, Asolare has long
been a mainstay of Love City's fine dining
scene. With its commanding view, the scen-
ery has always been a main attraction of the
restaurant. But now Asolare's vantage point
is just one of the draws at Winston Bennett's
showpiece restaurant.
Bennett, who formerly owned Integrated
Assets, used to oversee Chole and Bernards,
Chateaux Bordeaux, Paradiso and Asolare.


With Chole and Bernards and Chateaux
Bordeaux closed and Paradiso under new
ownership, Bennett has given Asolare the
attention it deserves and it shows in all
facets of the high-end establishment.
Upon first entering the historic-feeling
stone structure at Lind Point, diners are
whisked to the bar where they are in for a
treat. Mixologist Kim Holland has crafted
one of the most impressive drink menus on
St. John.
Relying heavily on local spices and fla-
vors, Holland's offerings range from the re-
freshing nonalcoholic Chichi Lala, a thirst
quenching concoction of muddled cucum-
ber, fresh lime and cranberry, to the potent
digestif Port-au-Prince, a tantalizing mix-


ture of Barbancourt 8 year, Cherry Herring,
Orange and local gooseberry.
Other highlights on Holland's drink
menu include the Holland Tunnel made
with New Amsterdam gin, passionfruit, the
Caribbean liqueur Falernum and organic
cinnamon from St. Lucia and the Lem-
ongrass Lemondrop, a grown up version of
the spring break special crafted only with
house infused lemongrass vodka and simple
syrup.
Holland also infuses her own rum and
tequila. The Sorrell Rita, a simple blend of
Holland's sorrell infused tequila mixed 100
percent agave tequila, is pure perfection.
"My inspiration is to keep things as lo-
cal as possible," said Holland. "I tell people


they can get a raspberry colada anywhere,
but where else are they going to get a house
infused bay rum or sorrell infused tequila?"
Proving her point, Holland talked a tour-
ist into having his Knob Creek on the rocks
rimmed with a local smoky honey, which
Holland extracted herself.
"This was one of the first hives we relo-
cated," said Holland. "It was probably eight
years old, which is why it tastes so smoky.
And since Knob Creek is smoky, they just
go together really well."
If you don't make it past the bar, have no
fear. Asolare's new bar menu offers ample
portions of exciting fare at affordable pric-
es.

Letters to St. John Tradewinds


Beware of New Cell Phone Scam

I retained my VI. cell phone after moving back to the U.S. I am
about to cancel it when the contract is done next month.
In the past few days, I have been getting calls (which fortunately
I didn't answer) from Grenadines, St. Vincent, and Dominica. I re-
ceived a call from the Sprint fraud line that they were blocking my
phone to local calls only.
I just pulled up my Sprint bill online and I have over $2,800
charged with incoming and outgoing calls to all over the Caribbean.
As my phone hasn't been used in days and never out of my posses-
sion, clearly it was hacked.
The fraud line never called me I called to ask that these calls be
blocked and found out from customer service! I requested that calls
should be made to the customer to tell them that they are blocking
all long distance calls before the customer finds out when trying to
do so.
As my bill was due in two days for the same amount, I would not
have caught it until next month.
The fix is very easy they ask you to go to the program part and
the issue is the "code" is the same as the phone number when initially
set up.
While online with one phone, I called Sprint and he was able to
reprogram my V.I. phone to break the hacking. I was assured me that
all of these charges would be removed.
The scary part is that it is somehow done remotely as I am not even
in the VI. Watchyourbills closely. I remember reading something on-
line in the Daily News about this last year. Maybe time for our friends
in the press to put another alert out. Spread the word!

Best regards to all,
St. John Resident Living in the U.S.

To all of our friends on St. John:
I am writing to tell you how grateful I am for the
many messages of love and support I am receiving
from all of you on our dear island.
You have enriched our lives these 45 years of our
winter visits, and your love will continue to arm my
heart as I travel without our dear Bob on the next part


This information was in The New York Times sever-
al weeks ago as part of their "Spotlight on the Home"
series that highlighted creative and fanciful ways to
solve common problems.
1. Cucumbers contain most of the vitamins you
need every day, just one cucumber contains
Vitamin B Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin
B5, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin C, Calci-
um, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium
and Zinc.
2. Feeling tired in the afternoon, put down the
caffeinated soda and pick up a cucumber.
Cucumbers are a good source of B Vitamins
and Carbohydrates that can provide that quick
pick-me-up that can last for hours.
3. Tired of your bathroom mirror fogging up after
a shower? Try rubbing a cucumber slice along
the mirror, it will eliminate the fog and provide
a soothing, spa-like fragrance.
4. Are grubs and slugs ruiningyourplantingbeds?
Place a few slices in a small pie tin and your
garden will be free of pests all season long.
The chemicals in the cucumber react with the
aluminum to give off a scent undetectable to
humans but drive garden pests crazy and make
them flee the area.
5. Looking for a fast and easy way to remove
cellulite before going out or to the pool? Try
rubbing a slice or two of cucumbers along
your problem area for a few minutes, the phy-
tochemicals in the cucumber cause the col-
lagen in your skin to tighten, firming up the
outer layer and reducing the visibility of cel-
lulite. Works great on wrinkles too!!!
6. Want to avoid a hangover or terrible headache?
Eat a few cucumber slices before going to bed
and wake up refreshed and headache free. Cu-
cumbers contain enough sugar, B vitamins and
electrolytes to replenish essential nutrients the
body lost, keeping everything in equilibrium,
avoiding both a hangover and headache!
7. Looking to fight off that afternoon or evening
snacking binge? Cucumbers have been used


of my journey.
My intention is to return this winter, and we will
arrange a memorial gathering to share our stories and
memories of a most unusual man, Bob Lefferts.

With gratitude and love,
Sybil Lefferts


for centuries and often used by European trap-
pers, traders and explores for quick meals to
thwart off starvation.
8. Have an important meeting or job interview
and you realize that you don't have enough
time to polish your shoes? Rub a freshly cut
cucumber over the shoe. Its chemicals will
provide a quick and durable shine that not only
looks great but also repels water.
9. Out of WD 40 and need to fix a squeaky
hinge? Take a cucumber slice and rub it along
the problematic hinge, and voila, the squeak
is gone!
10. Stressed out and don't have time for massage,
facial or visit to the spa? Cut up an entire cu-
cumber and place it in a boiling pot of water,
the chemicals and nutrients from the cucum-
ber with react with the boiling water and be
released in the steam, creating a soothing, re-
laxing aroma that has been shown the reduce
stress in new mothers and college students
during final exams.
11. Just finish a business lunch and realize you
don't have gum or mints? Take a slice of cu-
cumber and press it to the roof of your mouth
with your tongue for 30 seconds to eliminate
bad breath, the phytochemcials will kill the
bacteria in your mouth responsible for causing
bad breath.
12. Looking for a "green" way to clean your fau-
cets, sinks or stainless steel? Take a slice of
cucumber and rub it on the surface you want to
clean, not only will it remove years of tarnish
and bring back the shine, but is won't leave
streaks and won't harm you fingers or finger-
nails while you clean.
13. Using a pen and made a mistake? Take the out-
side of the cucumber and slowly use it to erase
the pen writing, also works great on crayons
and markers that the kids have used to deco-
rate the walls!

Crown 50th Festival Queen

I would like to help with the pollution around the world, especially
with the recent oil crisis," Monsonto-Weeks said. "I hope to help
resolve these kinds of problems and prevent them from happening
in the future."
Nisbett, who is going on her second year in the Army National
Guard and majoring in transportation and logistics management, said
pageant training has been particularly challenging for her.
"It's been rough coming from military training," Nisbett said. "I
am used to military marching and modeling is totally different. I
have to go from walking in boots to walking in heels and not just
wearing heels, but walking gracefully in them."
Nisbett said she is now wearing heels outside of pageant practice
and is becoming more and more comfortable as the days go by.
"Since running for Miss Eudora Kean in 2006, I have wanted to do
another pageant so when I heard that St. John had opened its contest
to St. Thomas girls as well, I thought this would be the perfect op-
portunity," Nisbett said.
Pageant contestants must be between 16- and 21-years-old, but
due to a lack of St. John participants in recent years, the committee
decided to include young ladies from St. Thomas a move Doway
said makes the process more about preparing young women for life
than crowing a queen.
"It is not about the crown, it is about the process of grooming for
the crown," Doway said. "We would rather open it up to St. Thomas
and have the girls go through the different classes and training so the
contestant who receives the title is actually groomed rather than just
appointed."
The skills young women acquire during the pageant process trans-
fer to real-world situations; for example, Doway said contestants
receive professional interview training during pageant preparation
which will be a tremendous benefit as they apply for future jobs.
"Honestly, this is why I like pageants so much I can actually
see the change in the young ladies from the time they submit an ap-
plication to the night of the show," Doway said. "It's not just in the
way they walk, but also the way they talk and the way they present
themselves to the public."


JESS Promotes 12 Polished Diamonds


Continued from Page 2
for encouragement and support.
Brown thanked them for the many
lessons he had learned over the
years and values he had gained
throughout his time at JESS.
"Keep the Dream Alive"
Besides listening to the wise
remarks of the guest speakers
and seeing all 12 student march
in white and black to the famous
graduation song "Pomp and Cir-
cumstance," people in attendance
were also spectators to musical se-
lections by the JESS All Star Band
and JESS Concert Band, as well as
the harmonies of the Faculty Choir
as they sang the song "Keep the
Dream Alive."
The music department further
delighted the crowd by introduc-
ing a new scholarship, which was
awarded to the talented saxophone
player Jonte Samuel.
Samuel was the 2007 Valedic-
torian of JESS and graduated this
year from Charlotte Amalie High
School.
Although on crutches, Samuel
was in attendance to receive the
award, which will help him on his
way as he heads to Berklee Col-
lege of Music next year.
It Takes a Village
No promotional ceremony is
complete without reinforcing the


importance of the adage "it takes
a village to raise a child."
First Honor student Thomas
took the opportunity to do so as
he spoke about the close-knit fam-
ily setting at both Guy Benjamin
School and Julius E. Sprauve
School as well as all the people in
the community who have impact-
ed his life.
Thomas thanked both schools
for their nurturing atmosphere and
good education, and everyone else
for their care and guidance.
"You have all played a role in
guiding me on a straight path," he
said.
Thomas also thanked the "gov-
ernor" of his village, his mother,
Lucille Parsons, for being there for
him and providing.
After mentioning some of the
many lessons he learned at JESS,
Thomas' speech was concluded
with the wise words of Henry
Wadsworth, "let us be up and do-
ing, with a heart for any fate, still
achieving still pursuing; learn to
labor and to wait."
Later in the ceremony Thomas
received numerous awards in-
cluding the English, Social Stud-
ies, Mathematics, Industrial Arts,
and the newly introduced Athletic
and Academic Awards, which was
granted to the student athlete with


the highest grade point average.
"I would like to say congratu-
latioms to the class of 2010," said
Second Honor student Brown. "I
hope that we can stay friends, stay
positive, encourage each other and
be there for each other as much as
possible. We must never forget our
school and our community."
"Let us also not forget to make
our parents proud and most of all
let's continue to be good people,"
said Brown.
After all the remarks and speech-
es were given and all the students
had received their awards and cer-
tificates, JESS Assistant Principal
Brenda Dalmida wrapped up the
ceremony by giving special thanks
to all the people who participated
in and helped put the program to-
gether and, of course, the teachers
of these students.
To wrap up the program, pro-
motee Andrew Penn Jr. gave clos-
ing inspirational remarks.
"Keep up the good work," said
Penn. "The journey is far from
over."
With these last remarks the cer-
emony was brought to an end as
the 12 students marched out of the
ballroom and were met by a crowd
of well-wishers with hugs, kisses,
gifts and more. The night was truly
a celebration.

Try the BLT, brimming with
house cured bacon atop handmade
bread served with a tempura cher-
ry tomato and greens grown right
outside of the restaurant's door.
The house smoked copper river
salmon is served with pickled red
onions on toasted pumpernickel
bread and topped with citrus creme
fresh. Other bar menu options are
tempura leeks served with red
curry hollandaise, and jerk seared
shrimp with a light mango tequila
salsa and grilled pineapple.
With prices ranging from $5 for
edamame to $13 for the smoked
salmon, Asolare's bar menu is a
perfect option for light dinners or
pre-entree noshes.
For more heartier appetites, let
chefs Tom Ghinazzi, Jon Balak and
Fabian Angol delight your senses.
The Culinary Institute of America-
trained chefs Ghinazzi and Balak


have created a four course tasting
menu that was priced at $55 on a
recent evening.
Choose from jerk seared shrimp
or BLT for the first course, before
deciding between the silken gazpa-
cho drizzled with cilantro oil and a
bright carrot ginger salad.
Main course options on the
tasting menu were a pan seared
mahi mahi with baby bok choy
with a coconut green tea emulsion
and coriander-honey glazed duck
breast with grilled summer squash
and port duck jus.
Ordering off the regular menu
is just as rewarding. Highlights
include a local tuna tartar served
atop a bed of wakame salad, a re-
freshingly different spinach salad
with port sage brown butter and a
pan seared grouper served with red
wine braised quinoa and coconut
mushroom sauce.
Be sure to save room for des-


serts, which are made in house and
change often. On a recent night,
the sweet offerings included an
airy profiterole drizzled with dark
chocolate sauce, a creamy key
lime pie topped with baked me-
rengue and blackberry champagne
poached pears.
Just like Holland at the bar,
Ghinazzi and Balak let their sur-
roundings dictate their menu.
"We try as much as possible to
make the menu reflect the Caribbe-
an and the island," said Ghinazzi.
"If the spices aren't local here,
they're local to the Caribbean,"
said Balak. "We try to keep things
light and local."
Let Ghinazzi, Balak, Angol and
the entire Asolare staff show you
their take on local and light it's
sure to be impressive. Asolare is

USCG and ICE Arrest


Three Smugglers, Seize


$7.5 Million in Cocaine


St. John Tradewinds
The crew of the Coast Guard
Cutter Cushing, working jointly
with U.S. Immigration and Cus-
toms Enforcement special agents,
arrested three smugglers and seized
approximately 534 pounds of co-
caine and 10 pounds of an unde-
termined substance in Mayaguez,
following an at-sea interdiction of
a pleasure craft last week.
The 26-foot vessel La Burla was
carrying a shipment of cocaine
with an estimated street value of
approximately $7.5 million. ICE
special agents arrested two Puerto
Rican and one Dominican men in
connection with the seizure.
"This is another example of our
collective efforts with ICE, DEA,
FBI, CBP, the Puerto Rico Police
and the U.S. Attorney's Office
working aggressively to combat
drug trafficking organizations and
bring smugglers to justice," said
Capt. Eduardo Pino, Coast Guard
Sector San Juan commander.
The crew of the Coast Guard
Cutter Cushing detected and in-


terdicted the suspicious pleasure
craft in waters approximately four
nautical miles north of Aguadilla,
Puerto Rico.
Upon interdicting the vessel,
the crew of Cushing conducted an
at-sea boarding of La Burla, which
revealed the drug shipment inside
a hidden compartment onboard the
vessel. Further field testing of the
contraband yielded positive to co-
caine.
The crew of Cushing proceeded
to detain all three crew members
onboard and escort La Burla to the
Port of Mayaguez, Puerto Rico.
The crew of Cushing, Customs
and Border Protection officers and
Immigrations and Customs En-
forcement agents conducted a fur-
ther search of La Burla once it was
safely moored in Mayaguez.
The case was transferred to
the U.S. Attorney's Office for the
District of Puerto Rico for further
prosecution.
The Coast Cuard Cutter Cush-
ing is a 110-foot patrol boat home
ported in San Juan.

This year, the Festival and Cultural Organization of St. John will crown its 50th queen -
giving one deserving young woman the title of Miss St. John after its sure-to-be riveting selec-

"The first queen was elected in 1960 so this is actually the 50th queen we will be electing
this year," said Enid Doway, pageants committee chairperson.
Elsie Thomas-Trotman became the first Miss St. John in 1960, and four promising young

Jah Vena Q. Nisbett of St. Thomas, a 20-year-old sophomore enrolled in the American
Military University's distance learning program, is the daughter of Karen Nisbett; Shante

third year student at Xavier University of Louisiana, is the daughter of Cheryl and Elias Willie
