Powell Honored as Crowds Celebrate Village Opening

By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Love City's cultural and musi-
cal trends were proudly on dis-
play Wednesday night, June 30,
for locals, visitors and dignitar-
ies including Governor John de-
Jongh, during the official opening
of Po\ c II' ile St. John Festival
Village named in honor this year
of Selwyn Powell.
With rain delays pushing back
the St. John Princess Selection
Show last week, Festival Commit-
tee members opted to coronate this
year's Festival Queen and Prin-
cess during the Village Opening
as well.
The Love City Pan Dragons got
the festivities off to a rousing start
with a few musical selections that
had the crowd ready for fun. Fol-
lowing an invocation offered by
Pastor Carlyle Sampson, Berklee
College of Music student Evanna
Chinnery sang goose-bump induc-
ing renditions of the National An-
them and Virgin Islands March.
Powell has been integral to the
success of the island's Festival
celebration for years, explained St.
John Festival Committee Village
chairperson Jane Johannes.
"Tonight's honoree is one of the
most important people on St. John
when it comes to Festival," said
Johannes. "He has kept St. John
up for many, many years. Selwyn

should be honored and honored."
A self-described man of few
words, Powell didn't waste any-
one's time on the microphone.
"I'm here to thank the commit-
tee for giving me this honor to-
night," said Powell. "I'm no man
to talk, so I'm done."
Instead of coronating the queen-
select and princess-select in the
often sweltering temperatures dur-
ing Food Fair as usual, bestowing
the honors during Village Open-
ing might be a new tradition, ex-
plained mistress of ceremonies
Alecia Wells.
"This might be setting a prec-
edent with the coronation," said
Wells. "It's nice doing this in the
cool of the evening."
After accepting her crown from
First Lady Cecile deJongh, Shant6
Monsanto-Weeks explained the ar-
dorous task of becoming Festival
"The path to becoming royalty
is not an easy one," said Monsan-
to-Weeks. "We can all attest to
the hours of work that goes into
running for queen. It takes desire,
determination, discipline and self-
After thanking her mother,
coach, grandmother, siblings and
other family members, Monsanto-
Weeks wished the crowd a happy
Festival season.
"I remind my fellow Virgin

Islanders to remain safe during
Festival," said Queen Monsanto-
Princess Destini Garcia offered
a simple message to the crowd.
"Stop the violence," said the
Julius E. Sprauve School fourth
Dusted off from recent rains,
St. John is offering its best side for
visitors and residents to enjoy dur-
ing Festival, explained Senator at
Large Craig Barshinger.
"St. John is looking green
and beautiful and clean," said
Barshinger. "We welcome you one
and all. Give yourselves a hand
because Festival doesn't happen
without all of you being here to
enjoy it."
Keeping Festival safe is the
most important thing this year, ex-
plained Lt. Governor Greg Fran-
"Let's honor Princess Garcia's
words and stop the violence," said
Francis. "It's up to us to showcase
our culture. Let's keep it safe and
spend some money."
While Powell didn't have much
to say to the crowd, his impor-
tance should not be measured by
his words, explained Governor de-
"Through his years at WAPA,
his years at Village, his six children
and his seven grandchildren, Sel-
wyn Powell has been truly a man

of the community," said deJongh.
"It's my pleasure to be involved in
this festival to honor Selwyn Pow-
ell. In a place that is so special, this
community is extra nice."
With the last speech from the
dignitaries on the platform, it was
time to gather at the entrance to the
Cruz Bay custom's parking lot.

tee chairperson Leona Smith and

Festival Music Line Up Continues To Impress

By Malik Stevens
St. John Tradewinds
It has long been known that St. John has
the best musical line up for Festival any-
where in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
With a close-knit drama-free setting and
entertainment from across the Caribbean,
people from all over gather in Village to en-
joy what this little island has to offer during
Festival time.
And once again this year the St. John Fes-
tival and Cultural Organization has contin-
ued to keep this tradition alive. Powellville
has been a huge hit with its musical line up.
Beginning on Wednesday, June 30, with
soothing pan playing by the Love City
Pan Dragons, Love City's own Cool Ses-
sion Brass and the Road March Champions
Spectrum Band, village this year has kept

festival-goers highly entertained night after
On Thursday night, July 1, a huge crowd
was in attendance to move to the melodies
of Ah We Band and Extreme Band. With
WCK coming all the way from Dominica,
the audience was in for a great surprise.
The band filled the night sky with an
abundance of powder and flour delighting
the audience. By the end of the night, many
in the village crowd were covered head to
Friday and Saturday, July 3 and 4, were
no different. Imagination Brass, UMB Sol-
diers, and first timers El-A-Kru had locals
and visitors rocking in harmony from the
early evening till the wee hours of the morn-
"I have never heard of them, but they

were on point," one person said about El-A-
Kru while leaving the festivities at the end
of the night.
On Saturday, Red Hot Flames were on
fire, Odisi, from Nevis, displayed their
unique style of music, and well known Dad-
dy Jones and Crew were accompanied by
VI. singers Pumpa and Rudy.
All three bands drew people of all ages to
groove out in village. While the young kids
jumped up to the music in front of the stage,
the older crowd swayed their hips back and
forth further in the back of the crowd near
the booths lining the lot.
The celebration was sure to continue on
Sunday night, July 4, with Pan-In-Motion,
Wrection Band from St. John, Xpress Band,
Nu Vibes who were previously known as
Suga Band and internationally-renowned

Destra, who has been a favorite in St. John
Village for several years.
Powellville wraps up on Monday, July
5, with Cool Session Brass again taking the
stage, followed by the Virgin Islands all-star
entertainers Jam Band, and hugely-popular
Soca artist Shurwayne Winchester.
Coming straight out of Trinidad and To-
bago, Winchester is known to bring energy,
grace and momentum to every event he per-
While the weather was not too coopera-
tive at the beginning of St. John Festival cel-
ebrations, the rain has let up just in time for
the crowds to enjoy the great musical line up
at Powellville.
With clear and cool nights, everyone has
truly enjoyed Love City's Musical Trend for
Festival 2010.

By Malik Stevens
St. John Tradewinds
After being postponed twice due
to heavy rainfall, the St. John Fes-

performances by the St. Thomas
Charming Twirlers and the dance
group NC Squared.
A surprise visit was also made

dance with the four young ladies
who competed for the title of St.
John Festival Queen the previous
"I am a Virgin Islands' child,"
said contestant #1, Dalmida-Mc-
Cain, as she introduced herself in
her presentation speech.
Eloquent and intelligent, Dalm-
ida-McCain showcased a strong
performance throughout the show
from the minute she entered the
stage in a karate uniform sport-
ing a black belt in the sportswear
segment to later in the show
when she donned a life-sized ver-
sion of Sesame Street's newest
character Abby Cadabbie in the
storybook/cartoon character seg-
ment of the show.
For evening wear, Dalmida-Mc-
Cain wore a pink and white gown,

to be able to count all her of dol-
lars in the future.
Dalmida-McCain won Best

Karate Kid ensemble.
Winning Ms. Intellect, King,
contestant #3, also gave strong

In the storybook/cartoon charac-
ter segment, King dressed as Ariel

maid" and danced to the popular
song "Under the Sea."
For evening wear, King modeled
a yellow gown, set off by a bow on
each shoulder. King complimented
the gown with white gloves and a

white patterned umbrella.
When asked during the question
and answer segment about her fa-
vorite subject, King also said she
enjoyed mathematics because she
liked to learn new things like add-
ing fractions and doing division.

tors and now "good friends" as she
said, 9-year-old Destini Garcia
won Miss Photogenic, Miss Con-

SCA Crew Uses "Posi-enthus-itude"

While Maintaining VINP Trails

By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
While most teenagers take ad-
vantage of the summer months
to sleep in and catch up on their
social networks, eight teens have
spent the past month on St. John
digging with pick axes, hauling
boulders and installing water bars.
The teens are part of this sum-
mer's Student Conservation As-
sociation trail maintenance crew
based on St. John to help out V.I.
National Park officials for four
For the past decade, SCA, in
cooperation with Friends of VINP,
has sent a crew of teens with chap-
erones from across the states, Vir-
gin Islands and even the world,
to help officials maintain trails
throughout the VINP.
The eight students, along with
two chaperones, have been camp-
ing at Cinnamon Bay and working
daily from about 7:30 a.m. to 4
p.m. maintaining trails at Francis
Bay, Lind Point and Cinnamon
Bay, explained Friends of VINP's
program director Audrey Penn.
This year's crew, with an obvi-
ous easy camaraderie, might just
be one of the most special in re-
cent years. Invented words, words
of the day not to be uttered without
push-up punishments and working
in the summer heat side by side
made for easy bonding for this
group of teens
The students created the word
"posi-enthus-itude," to describe
one of their guiding principles.
"It basically describes what we
all want to have this summer a
positive, enthusiastic attitude,"
said Lillian Mallory, one of four
St. Croix students in the crew.
Mallory, who attends St. Cro-
ix's Country Day School, knew
a girl at school who worked with
SCA on St. John last summer, she
"A friend of mine did this last
summer and it sounded awesome,"
said Mallory. "So my friend and I
decided to sign up and do the pro-
gram together this summer."
While admitting the month-
long detachment to the VINP en-
tails plenty of work, Mallory was
still having the time of her life, she

Friends of VINP's Audrey Penn, at far right.

"I love this program so much,"
Mallory said. "It's a lot of work,
but I really like what we're doing
and I like feeling like we're help-
ing out here. I also love the rain
because it's been fun getting really
Fellow Crucian Country Day
School student Katie Morgan was
also having fun working on muddy
trails in VINP.
"A friend of ours did the pro-
gram last summer and she loved
it," said Morgan. "I think it's really
fun because the people are great. I
got to meet new people from all
over the U.S. and the world."
"The work is harder than I
thought it would be, but it really
is fun," Morgan said. "I can work
here and then go back home and
say that I'm proud of something
that I accomplished this summer."
John Arevalo, originally from
the Philippines, has been living on
St. Croix for the past three years
and the SCA work marked his first
trip to Love City. While Arevalo

also admitted the trail work was
strenuous, he enjoyed the sense
of accomplishment from toiling in
the park.
"It's hard, but it's awesome,"
said Arevalo. "It's a great way to
work, try something new and do
something. We dread the work,
but then we do it together and get
through it and kind of have fun."
The fourth teen from the big is-
land, Maliek Cepeda, was encour-
aged to join the SCA trail mainte-
nance by his high school guidance
"I've been to St. Thomas before
but this is the first time I've been to
St. John," Cepeda said. "My coun-
selor signed me up and it sounded
like fun. I've always liked hiking
and being outdoors."
Cepeda was also enjoying the
daily workouts the trail work af-
forded him, he added.
"The first time I hiked up this
trail I couldn't make it all the
way," said Cepeda. No%\ I'm
running up this trail."

St. Croix Company Selected

To Build New Ambulance Boat

- Star of Life in Dry Dock

By Andrea Milam
St. John Tradewinds
The St. John ambulance boat
Star of Life, which has been on its
last legs for several years, may fi-
nally get the replacement it so des-
perately needs.
Governor John deJongh an-
nounced last week that St. Croix
company Gold Coast Yachts has
been contracted to build a new
ambulance boat.
The construction of the boat,
whose cost is expected to be
around $700,000, will be funded
with money appropriated by de-
Jongh in August 2008. The new
ambulance boat could be in service
as soon as four to six months after
the contract is executed, accord-
ing to V.I. Department of Health
spokesperson Eunice Bedminster.
Design of the new boat will

probably be based on plans drawn
up by the St. John EMS Associa-
tion in 2004. The new vessel will
feature a 45- to 55-foot catamaran
hull design, ensuring stability and
the capability to both handle large
loads and work in many different
weather conditions.
It will be able to transport four
to six stretchers, and will accom-
modate a crew of five.
The process of acquiring a new
ambulance boat was kicked off
in December 2009, when a U.S.
Coast Guard consultant traveled
to Delaware and New York with
representatives from the V.I. De-
partment of Health including
St. John ambulance boat captain
Liston Sprauve and St. John
Administrator Leona Smith, to ob-
serve emergency vessels in action.

Stelzer's "Carnival" Photos on

Display at Elaine Sprauve Library
St. John Tradewinds
Friends of the Elaine I. Sprauve Library are sponsoring a photo
exhibit of William Stelzer's work titled "Carnival: Moments Be-
tween the Moments," starting Tuesday, July 6.
Stelzer's digital images depict everything from young masquer-
aders to police officers during Festival 2009 on St. John.
"At first glance, Carnival in the Virgin Islands is an explosion
of pageantry and color, but to the careful observer it is far more
complex, with endless subterranean layers," said Stelzer. "It is also
physically demanding, both physically and mentally, a symphony
of raw effort and toil performed beneath the Caribbean sun."
"And too, Carnival carries the weight of heavy expectations, as
it seeks to preserve one of the last areas of native culture still sur-
viving in the Virgin Islands," Stelzer said. "This series seeks to
find the moments between the moments, the images between the
classic images of carnival already so burned into our collective

"We Are Love City" Benefit for Wendy Davis

Rakes in $18,000 for Paramedic Training

By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
A crowd of more than 100 peo-
ple packed Skinny Legs on Sun-
day, June 27, to help raise funds
to send St. John Firewoman and
EMT Wendy Davis to the states
for additional medical response
In addition to a great time, the
"We Are Love City" benefit to
send Davis to training in Texas
to become a certified paramedic
raked in more than $18,000.
Thanks to a $5,000 donation
from VI. Lottery, benefit organiz-
ers Debbie Hime, Moe Chabuz
and Karen Baranowski were well
on their way to reaching their goal
of $15,000 early on June 27.
But other big donations from the
St. John Accommodations Council
and Serendip Vacation Condos as
well as many residents' enthusias-
tic support at the event, pushed the
figure over $18,000 last week.

"Adventures of Fiyah Dog

To Be Released Next Month


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
After two and a half years of
writing, filming and editing, as-
piring St. John filmmaker Jeremy
Garza has wrapped production of
his first feature-length effort.
"The Adventures of Fiyah Dog"
relates the tale of an ill-informed
Love City transplant from Indiana
who has trouble in the lady de-
partment. The lovable loser lead,
played by Garza himself, eventu-
ally learns the way to a woman's
heart, but not before following a
path strewn with challenges and
ridiculous situations with no
end of laughs along the way.
After wrapping filming last
year, Garza hosted a screening of
the rough draft, but DVDs of the
newly edited version minus a
few of the raunchier scenes includ-
ed in the first cut will be avail-
able for sale for $25 next month at
Woody's and The Tap Room.
Garza will host screenings of
the 85-minute edited version of
"Adventures of Fiyah Dog" on St.
John and St. Thomas in the begin-
ning of August.
In addition to playing the lead
role, Garza also co-wrote, pro-
duced, edited and directed the
film. The seeds for the over-the-
top feature film were sown years
ago when Garza was waiting ta-
bles at a Cruz Bay restaurant, he
"I was working at Chloe and
Bernard's and a friend of mine
was dating this guy and the two of

them were just totally crazy," said
Garza. "I knew if I could make a
documentary of their life, I would
get rich off it. Then I was in New
York City and I met a filmmaker
and I told him this idea I had."
"The concept was a reality show
that would be totally over the top,"
Garza said. "I had no experience in
any way. But the filmmaker and a
friend of his were interested in the
When Garza's friends broke
up a few days before filmmakers
Daniel Browne and Kep Monsta
arrived, he scrambled to come up
with a new idea for a film.
T%\o days before these guys
were coming down, the guy who
I thought would be the star of the
show left island," said Garza. "I
had already paid for their flights
and bought the film and started
writing the story. It was a great
opportunity and I didn't want to
waste their time."
"I figured I would have to star
in the film because I didn't know
anyone else who could do it," said
Garza. "I had joked around for
years with friends with this alter-
ego and I immediately came up
with ideas around this character."
With help from his sister, Gar-
za set to writing a rough plot line
around what would eventually
become the completely ridiculous
Fiyah Dog and his adventures on
St. John.
Garza worked with the New
York filmmakers for five weeks
and then on his own for another

three months before flushing out
the story line for the film. With
the help of highly-talented friends
who nearly improvised the entire
script, Garza succeeded in filming
all the footage he needed.
"I'm really lucky to have friends
who are really good at improve "
said Garza. "No one had any act-
ing experience, except for my sis-
ter who had minimal experience.
But they all did an amazing job."
Fiyah Dog features all local mu-
sic, was shot solely on St. John and
features an entirely local cast. It
was also funded entirely by Garza
"I did this on the smallest bud-
get imaginable, but I still paid for
everything out my pocket," said
Garza. "I'm hoping to make some
money selling the DVDs and I'm
looking for private donations to
help with entry costs to film fes-
Garza hopes to parlay the film
into a career in movies, he ex-
"I always wanted to get into the
film industry," he said. "So this
film is basically me just trying to
get my foot in the door. I feel like
I pretty much learned every aspect
of the filmmaking process."
"I feel pretty confident going
forward and focusing on direct-
ing," Garza said.
During the years-long filming
and editing process, Garza en-
joyed the support of fellow local
filmmakers, he added.

Leland have been huge support-
ers and have really helped me each
step along the way," said Garza.
After two and half years of
work, Garza is more than relieved
to see his hard work culminate in
85 minutes of edited footage.
"It's the biggest relief ever,"
Garza said about finishing the film.
"It came out a million times better
than I ever imagined."

The "Fiyah Dog" DVDs will in-
clude special features like deleted
scenes, a slide show and outtakes.
"I can't wait for the DVDs to
get here," said Garza. "I think it's
going to be a cult classic."

La Plancha del Mar Spicing Up Island

Weekends with Exciting Brunch Menu

By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
The talented trio behind La Plancha del Mar will
show off a whole new side of their culinary creativity
starting on Saturday, July 10.
Mike Prout, Jonathan Fritts and Jason Howard
have drawn a steadily-growing fan base since open-
ing their doors on the second floor of The Market-
place for lunch and dinner in January 2009.
La Plancha has won a loyal clientelle of custom-
ers who can't get enough of the trio's signature style
showcasing creative takes on classic flavors without
taking shortcuts.
During lunch that translates into a roasted garlic
caesar salad with crispy fried caper flowers and a steak
and swiss wrap with caramelized onions and horserad-
ish creme fraiche. La Plancha's playfullness pops up
on the dinner menu in the form of their deconstructed
paella served with a saffron sweet pea risotto cake.
Soon the La Plancha guys will be flexing their con-
siderable culinary muscles on weekend mornings.
Staring this Saturday, July 10, stop by La Plancha
between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. on weekends to taste what
only Prout, Fritts and Howard could dream up for
"We make everything from scratch and we try not
be run of the mill," said Fritts. "We try to put our own
twist on everything we do."
The trio have definitely hit that mark with their
brunch menu. Instead of the tired eggs benedict of-
fered at most brunch eateries, the La Plancha ver-
sion comes served atop a house-crafted johnny cake
with hickory smoked bacon and red chili hollandaise
Griddle fans will literally flip for the menu options
on that side of the grill. Instead of an over-done soggy
French toast dish, Fritts was inspired by his mother's
cinnamon bun recipe to create his bourbon-scented
cinnamon bun french toast.
"I use my mom's cinnamon bun recipe with a slight
tweak to it," said Fritts. "It makes it just a little dif-
Don't miss the real-deal Belgian waffle served up
light and fluffy with fresh whipped cream, macada-
mia nuts and a bright mixed berry compote.
For egg lovers, the La Plancha men will be whip-
ping up a hefty breakfast burrito with sausage, on-
ions and fresh bell peppers wrapped up with cheddar
cheese, sour cream and roasted red pepper salsa.
Carnivors will love La Plancha's steak and eggs,
featuring two eggs served up with a seared churrasco
steak and Argentinean-style chimichurri.
Hailing originally from Virginia where breakfast is
a big deal, Fritts prides himself on his biscuits and
gravy, sure to be a favorite on La Plancha's brunch
special board.
"I'm from the south and breakfast is big back
home," said Fritts. "I stand behind my biscuits and
I really stand behind my gravy. That's something I
learned from my grandmother."
Lunch-style offerings on the menu include a
chicken caesar, seared tiger prawns and steak salads,

cheeseburger and mahi mahi sandwiches and a break-
fast grilled cheese brimming with eggs, brie, tomato
and bacon on grilled sourdough.
To wash down all those mouth-watering menu op-
tions, be sure to sip on a freshly-crafted bloody mary
or mimosa. Or check out a "man-mosa," making its
Love City debut at La Plancha.
"It's Budweiser and orange juice," said Fritts. "It
has a mimosa feel to it, but it's better than the mimosa
you normally get that's mixed with the cheapest spar-
kling wine you can find. It's really good."
The trio were inspired to start serving brunch in the
first place since they started closing for dinner on the
weekends during off-season, explained Fritts.
"We figured brunch was a niche that we could fill,"
said the chef, bartender and baker. "Since it's slowed
down a bit during off-season we really only need two
of us for service during the week and we stopped
serving dinner on the weekends."
"We have more time and we're paying rent 24-hours
a day, so we might as well make brunch," said Fritts.
When setting out to design the menu, Fritts was as
inspired by his proud southern heritage as he was by
his own taste.
"I wanted to have things on the menu that I would
like to go out and eat," said Fritts. "And I wanted the
menu to be fun."
La Plancha has achieved exactly that. Be sure to
check out the restaurant on the second floor of The
Marketplace for brunch on Saturdays and Sundays
from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
La Plancha del Mar also serves lunch, from 11:30
a.m. to 2 p.m., and dinner, from 5 to 9 p.m., Monday
through Friday. And don't miss $5 appetizers and $3
sangrias at happy hour, weekdays from 5 to 7 p.m.

DeJongh Signs Agreement To Study Inter-Island Electrical Connection

St. John Tradewinds
Governor John deJongh said
last week he had recently executed
an agreement between the Virgin
Islands Energy Office and the VI.
Water and Power Authority to con-
duct a feasibility study of an inter-
island electrical connection.
The execution of the agreement
is part of the administration's strat-
egy to assist WAPA in expanding
its energy portfolio options in or-
der to reduce the territory's almost
sole reliance on fossil fuel for the
production of electricity and po-
table water.
"The feasibility study will eval-
uate whether the creation of an in-
terconnection between Puerto Rico
and Virgin Islands, and even link-
ing to the British Virgin Islands is
practical and can assist us in miti-
gating rate increases that impact
our residents," deJongh said.
The grant is funded by $475,750
from a Congressionally Directed
Project through the U.S. Depart-
ment of Energy National En-
ergy Technology Laboratory and
$118,938 in matching funds from
WAPA will study the feasibil-

The proposed electrical connection would link Puerto Rico with St. Thomas and St. John
with the BVI, to allo WAPA to expand its energy options, according to Government House.

ity of inter-connecting the power
grids between St. Thomas and St.
Croix, between St. Thomas and
Puerto Rico and between St. John
and the British Virgin Islands.
The study would select the ap-
propriate submarine cable types,
ensure the feasibility of high

voltage direct current (HVDC),
analyze the required power sys-
tem's new configuration, provide
inter-connection preliminary cost
estimates and conduct a benefits
analysis that will evaluate such
factors as the system's reliability,
operating costs, future capital in-

vestment needs, and any other po-
tential benefits of an interconnect-
ed system. A Request for Proposal
was already issued for release last
"Inter-connecting one or more
of these grids provides opportuni-
ties for WAPA to reduce its fuel

consumption through four strate-
gic approaches," said WAPA ex-
ecutive director Hugo Hodge. "By
inter-connecting the grids, WAPA
could reduce its spinning reserves,
buy power from Puerto Rico at a
rate lower than it can produce,
purchase wind power from the
British Virgin Islands and begin
to increase the electricity grid that
would allow for a higher amount
of renewable energy to be incorpo-
rated into its generation mix."
Reducing WAPA's fuel con-
sumption would not only provide
a measure of price stability for rate
payers, but would help the terri-
tory move towards meeting the
goals that the governor recently
announced as part of the Energy
Development in Island Nations
initiative," said VI Energy Office
director Bevan Smith. "The po-
tential benefits of increased reli-
ability and lower electrical cost
make the pursuit of grid intercon-
nection without neighbors a very
attractive venture. We have great
partnerships on this project with
the federal government who view
this as possible the first link in a
Caribbean-wide power grid."

National Volleyball Star Megan Hodge Welcomed Back Home

St. John Tradewinds
Governor John deJongh was proud to
welcome home Megan Hodge, one of the
nation's premier college athletes and a na-
tive Virgin Islander who just competed in
an international tournament with the U.S.
Women's National Volleyball Team, ac-
cording to a government press release.
Hodge, whose mother is St. Johnian
Carmen Samuel, is regarded as one of
the best volleyball players in the world.
She was a star outside hitter at Penn State
University, who throughout college was
recognized as an academic standout and
exceptional scholar.
Hodge arrived Tuesday night, June 29,
on St. Thomas for a week vacation with
her family.
"The 21-year-old phenom was born on
St. Thomas and comes from a rich vol-
leyball tradition in the territory," said de-
Jongh. "Her parents, Michael and Carmen,
both played for the U.S. Virgin Islands
National Volleyball Team, as did several
other relatives. Hodge's family moved to
North Carolina when she was three years
old, but she has always kept close ties to

her relatives in the Virgin Islands."
Last week, Hodge competed in Mexico
with the U.S. Women's National Team at
the PanAmerican Cup. Hodge's accolades
and awards in high school and college are
too numerous to list in their entirety.
She was the star player on one of the
best college volleyball teams in recent his-
tory, and earlier this year was named the
2010 Penn State Female Athlete of the
Year. She was also chosen as the co-win-
ner of the prestigious Honda-Broderick
Cup, an award that goes to the top colle-
giate female athlete in the country.
As a senior, Hodge guided the Penn
State Nittany Lions to a third straight
NCAA title, and her college career ended
on a 102 match-winning streak, with an
amazing overall record at Penn State of
142-5. Four times, she was a first-team
All-American, twice the Big Ten Player of
the Year.
In 2009, Hodge was named American
Volleyball Coaches Association Divi-
sion I National Player of the Year, and the
College Sports Information Directors of
America Academic All-American of the

Megan Hodge strikes the ball.

Year for volleyball.
At Penn State, Hodge excelled on and
off the court. She has been honored as
an ESPN Magazine first team Academic
All-American in 2009, and second team
in 2008. She was also named Academic
All-American of the Year for her sport in
2009, and is a three-time Academic All
Big Ten honoree.
Her studies at Penn State culminated in

May with a Bachelors of Science degree in
Business Management. After graduation,
Hodge went to play for the U.S. National
Volleyball Team and won silver at the 26th
annual Montreux Volley Masters in Swit-
zerland earlier this month.
"While she left the territory when she
was young, Megan Hodge still proudly
represents the Virgin Islands as she travels
the world as a member of the United States
Women's National Volleyball Team," said
deJongh. "Her dedication to her sport, and
her studies, is inspirational, and serves as
a bright example of what all our territory's
athletes and scholars can achieve when
they dedicate themselves to hard work."
"I'm pleased to welcome Megan back
to St. Thomas on behalf of all Virgin Is-
landers, and I invite her to enjoy all that
her native island has to offer while she's
here," the governor said.
The Office of the Governor and the
Departments of Tourism and Housing,
Parks and Recreation hosted a welcome
home ceremony and reception for Me-
gan Hodge's arrival on American Airlines
Flight 795 from Miami last week.

Mentors Needed for

VIPD Youth Program

St. John Tradewinds
The V.I. Police Department Crime Prevention Bureau is seek-
ing youth and adult mentors for their DEFY summer program, VI.
Police Commissioner Novelle Francis announced last week.
The Drug Education For Youth, or DEFY program, promotes
self-esteem in youth ages 9-12, instilling in them the tools they
need to resist drugs, gangs, alcohol, and illegal gun use.
DEFY is directed by the VIPD Weed and Seed programs lo-
cated in Estates Bovoni and Tutu on St. Thomas and Estate Grove
Place on St. Croix in conjunction with the Virgin Islands National
Camp DEFY will be at the Virgin Islands Environmental Re-
sources Station (VIERS) located at Lameshur Bay during the week
of August 8. A total of 30 youth will be accepted into this program
15 from the St. Croix district and 15 from the St. Thomas/St.
John District.
The Weed and Seed program is a national crime prevention
strategy that aims to prevent, control and reduce violent crime,
drug abuse and gang activity in designated neighborhoods.
DEFY focuses on building self-image and goal setting skills in
youth. It stresses interpersonal relations and emphasizes leader-
ship and teamwork. It raises awareness of the harmful effects of
alcohol and other drugs, as well as the dangerous consequences of
peer pressure to join gangs.
The structured curriculum offers education, skill development
and physical fitness. DEFY creates a positive experience so partic-
ipants will choose healthy alternatives instead of substance abuse
and gang involvement. DEFY participants are placed in youth or-
ganizations and continue to be mentored for at least a year after
"The program is in need of positive role models and mentors
from the community," Francis said. "If you are interested in hav-
ing a fun, educational and life changing experience with Camp
DEFY please contact Officer Edith Stevens on St. Croix at 719-
6940. If you are on St. Thomas or St. John or contact Jacqueline
Freeman or Officer Adrien Huggins at 344-4516 or 777-4919."
Adult and youth mentors must be able to pass a police back-
ground check, added Francis.

STT Contractor and Developer Charles Bushfield Dies

St. John Tradewinds
St. Thomas developer and con-
tractor Charles William Bushfield,
64, of 60-7 Estate Caret Bay East,
St. Thomas, Virgin Islands died
peacefully Monday, June 28, at
home after a brief illness.
Born in Calgary, Alberta Can-
ada, Mr. Bushfield, or Charlie, as
he liked to be called, was the son
of the late Raymond Bushfield and
Mary Savile Bushfield of Calgary,
Alberta, Canada.
He attendedAirdrie High School
where he was an avid hockey
player graduating in 1961. He also
graduated from Southern Alberta
Institute of Technology in 1964
with a degree in mechanical engi-
Building upon his childhood
love of hockey and his own semi-
pro hockey career, Charlie later
owned the award winning Alberta
Rose Hockey Team of the Cana-
dian Hockey League.
In 1979, Charlie moved with his
family (Carolynn, Keith and Sheri)
to St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands,
where he loved sailing throughout
the Caribbean on his sailboat The
Alberta Rose.
Charlie was a member of the
St. Thomas Gun Club and par-
ticipated in various regional and
International Skeet competitions
representing the United States Vir-
gin Islands. He also was an avid
big game hunter, having traveled
all over the world pursuing this
passion for hunting. He hunted in
such locales as Canada, Australia,
New Zealand, Alaska, Iceland and

the Yukon.
Charlie was known for his cre-
ativity and entrepreneurial inter-
ests including Cyclone Fencing,
and C. Bushfield Contracting. He
developed subdivisions in both
East and West Caret Bay, as well
as several commercial develop-
ments in Canada.
Additionally, he owned and de-
veloped many business ventures
in St. Thomas including the St.
Thomas Hydroponic Farm, which
he created in conjunction with The
World Bank Foundation and Wes
Moffat, inventor of the microwave
He was very proud of this proj-
ect as it was designed to be a tem-
plate in aiding third world coun-
tries to grow food crops in drought
stricken areas. In the mid-1990's,
Charlie started another company,
"Charlie's Pesto." This organic,
homegrown, homemade pesto
was grown and manufactured in
St Thomas and shipped through-
out the Caribbean and the Eastern
United States.
Charlie was probably most well
known for his chain link fencing,
concrete pouring, contracting,
woodworking and mechanical in-
clination that he used to help any-
one at anytime on island.
When Charlie wasn't on his
sailboat, exploring the Caribbean,
shark fishing in far too small aboat,
or snorkeling in front of his house,
he enjoyed the simpler things in
life such as woodworking.
He cared deeply about the com-
munity and lent a helping hand

to anyone in need. He greatly en-
joyed being a member of the Ro-
tary Club of St. Thomas II and a
charter member of the Rotary Club
of St. Thomas Sunrise.
Mr. Bushfield was predeceased
by his parents. Surviving are his
wife, Carolynn Louise Bushfield
of St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands;
his son Keith Patrick Bushfield and
his wife, Carol of Calgary, Alberta,
Canada; and his daughter Dr. Sheri
Louise Vanino of Denver, Colora-
do; granddaughters, Alexis Bush-
field and Reiss Bushfield of Cal-
gary, Alberta, Canada and Isabella
and Mia Vanino of Denver, Colo-
rado; and brothers, Walter Bush-
field, Archibald Bushfield, both
of Calgary, Alberta, Canada; and
sisters, Dorothy Donner of Col-
lingwood, Ontario, Canada, Hazel
O'Brien of Vancouver, British Co-
lumbia, Canada, and Pat Harvey of
Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Charlie was known by most to
be adventurous, genuine, kind,
hard working, generous and en-
trepreneurial. His presence, stories
and fun loving spirit will be missed
by many.
A celebration of Charlie Bush-
field's life will be held at one of
his favorite island hangouts, Hull
Bay Hideaway, on Sunday, July
18, from 2 to 6 p.m. Anyone and
everyone interested in celebrating
Charlie's life are welcome.
In lieu of flowers, memori-
als may be made to the Charles
Bushfield Fund, Rotary Club of St.
Thomas Sunrise, Post Office Box
302757, St. Thomas, VI 00803.

Local Streetperson Petrina Richards Dies

FXUte,0e0 "VtU carvaL'Va

By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
A fixture often seen on the
streets of Cruz Bay, Petrina Rich-
ards died sometime on Wednesday
evening, June 30.
The former Miss St. John Fes-

tival Queen was around 45 years
old when she passed away last
week. While it was rumored that
Richards had been suffering from
a tumor in her abdomen, the cause
of her death was not confirmed by
officials by press time.

Richards' death was not a police
matter, according to V.I. Police
Department spokesperson Melody
Richards, whose sister Carryn
Powell died on June 23, died of
natural causes, Rames added.

Second Annual Using Sport For Social

Change Just Play Day Set for October 11

St. John Tradewinds
Using Sport For Social Change, in conjunction
with the St. John Community Foundation and the St.
John Parks and Recreation Department, will host its
Second Annual Just Play Day on Columbus Day, Oc-
tober 11, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in Cruz Bay.
This free event will be open to all youth between
the ages of 2-18 years of age. Aparent or legal guard-
ian must accompany all 2- to 5-year-olds.
The main idea of this free event is to introduce kids
to different sports that they may not have played be-
fore, in a team and individual environment.
The event will consist of sports suiioens" that each
participant will need to go through in order to com-
pete for prizes, donated by Nike, in a friendly, fun and
competitive atmosphere. Individuals will be compet-
ing against, and with other youth in their same age
The Just Play Day will also include a catered lunch
by Mathayom Private Chefs, as well as drinks and
snacks for all participants and volunteers.
Pre-Registration is required for all participants and

volunteers for this event, which can be completed on-
line at www.usingsportforsocialchange.com.
The number of participants will be limited to the
first 200 youths who sign up. The number of volun-
teers will be limited to the first 75 who register.
Using Sports for Social Change is a St. John-based
initiative spearheaded by Dean Doeling, a Senior De-
sign Production Artist with Nike, and a frequent va-
cationer to St. John.
USFSC's primary purpose is to support local sport-
ing programs that are already in place, with fundrais-
ing, community education and sporting equipment
donated by Nike. Furthermore, USFSC is trying to
resurrect some failed sporting programs and provide
play days where kids from all classes and cultures
can come together for and participate in sports-based
games and skill challenges.
The group is still in need of sponsors for this event
and tax-deductible donations are greatly needed in
order to continue programs on St. John. All informa-
tion can be found at www.usingsportforsocialchange.

SCA Crew Maintaining VINP Trails

Alex Gould, from Milwau-
kee, Wisconsin, signed up for the
summer SCA crew after a little
urging from his mother.
"My mother found out about
the program and signed me up,"
said Gould. "I didn't apply for
the Virgin Islands, but it's amaz-
ing here. The beaches are so
beautiful and the water is incred-
Jenna Hoobler's environmen-
tal science teacher recommended
the Erie, PA, student check out
the SCA summer program.
"My AP environmental sci-
ence teacher told me about the
program and it sounded cool,"
said Hoobler.
The program was not only
Hoobler's first time on St. John,
it was her first time ever camping
"I liked the concept of what
we were doing," she said. "I've
never camped out before, so it
took me a bit of adjusting. But I
love it and I feel really lucky."
Two members of the crew,
Jennifer Ding from Texas, and
Gabby Ayla from the Philippines,
were busy on a recent morning
helping out VINP Archaeologist
Ken Wild and chaperone Brock
Kehoe from North Carolina was
running errands.
Fellow chaperone Anna




Brown from Minnesota, a stu-
dent at Bemidji State, signed up
to lead a SCA program after at-
tending sessions as a high school
student herself.
"I'm studying education to be-
come a high school teacher," said
Brown, 23. "I did the SCA sum-
mer program three times starting
when I was 15. I also worked for
SCA as a regional coordinator."
"I love doing this," she said.
"It's a lot of fun hanging out with
the kids for a month and seeing
the changes they go through. It's
really cool."
In addition to trail mainte-
nance and archaeology work, the
students also tried their hands at
johnny cake making and toured
the Annaberg garden.
The SCA summer trail crew
program is a win-win situation
for park trails, the public who
enjoys them and the students,
explained Penn.
"The students spend the
month working on trails and
helping out VINP officials by
keeping the trails in good shape,
which all the hikers appreciate,"
said Penn. "And the students
get a cross-cultural pre-college
experience. They gain valuable
outdoor skills and get to meet
new people while spending time
away from home."

Bear, Garcia came out driving a miniature vehicle to
a stage filled with colorful props including hearts with

Later when asked what her favorite subject in school
was, she responded by saying "Spelling."
One day she would love to represent the Virgin Is-

Garcia explained.
Garcia was crowned along with St. John Festival

Building New Ambulance Boat

"I am pleased that at long last we will have in place a maritime vehicle
that is fast and durable and will put the St. John community at ease," de-
Jongh said in a press release issued by Government House. "We wanted
a vehicle that could serve the dual purpose of assisting in marine emer-
gencies as well as serve as an ambulance boat."
"We were very meticulous with design details, even bringing in a
highly recommended consultant from the U.S. Coast Guard to assist in
this endeavor," said the governor.
Gold Coast Yachts, which was contracted to build the new boat, has
been in business on St. Croix since 1985.
The Star of Life, which was donated to the Department of Health fol-
lowing a 1991 seizure, can only accommodate two patients.
The aging vessel is currently in dry dock for maintenance and repairs,
and a private water taxi company has been contracted to provide water
ambulance services for the past several weeks.
The Star of Life will be used as a backup when the new ambulance
boat is put into service, according to Bedminster.
Department of Health Commissioner Julia Sheen was excited to learn
of the progress being made toward a new St. John ambulance boat, she
"I am pleased that we're closer to an acquisition because of what a
new ambulance boat will mean for residents," said Sheen. "It will not
only provide for improved and more efficient response times, but safer
rescue operations, better maneuverability, access to shallow bays and
areas of the St. John coastline."
The Star of Life has faced numerous issues, and even when operating
has been in "critical condition" for a long time, St. John EMS Associa-
tion president Carol Beckowitz previously told St. John Tradewinds.
"Every day we delay, we put patients at risk, as well as EMTs and
the boat crew," said Beckowitz. "Our goal is just to make this happen as
quickly as possible."
