"Political Silly Season Has Begun," Says Greaux

St. John Tradewinds
Government House dismissed
as untrue the allegations aired
on partisan political radio talk
shows that the Virgin Islands
government is in the process of
purchasing a yacht for the trans-
portation of the governor and his
family among the islands.
"This nonsense apparently
grows from the fact that the gov-
ernment is exploring the need
and cost of a multi-purpose ves-
sel for use by the VIPD, Fire Ser-
vices and the enforcement team
of the Department of Planning
and Natural Resources," said

Government House Director of
Communications Jean Greaux
"The vessel would be similar to
that presently in use by the BVI
police force and seen frequently
in the waters of the U.S. Virgin
The multi-purpose vessel
would augment the limited ma-
rine resources available to the
law enforcement agencies today.
The political silly season
has begun and between now
and November the community
should not be surprised at such
ridiculous and unfounded allega-
tions thrown about the territory's

airwaves, Greaux added.
"Rest assured that Govern-
ment House does not intend to
spend the weeks before the up-
coming elections responding to
all of the anticipated nonsense
on the talk shows," said Greaux.
"However, for one to suggest
that the government is in the
process of purchasing a yacht
for the movement of the gover-
nor and his family could not go
without rebuttal."
Routinely, the governor is
seen on the commercial ferry be-
tween St. Thomas and St. John,
Greaux added.

St. John Mosquito Fogging Is Aug. 11
St. John Tradewinds
Department of Health's Environmental Health Division will
continue fogging this week in the aftermath of increased rains ter-
ritory-wide, Commissioner Julia Sheen announced last week.
The department routinely fogs following heavy rains because of
the inherent increase in the mosquito population and to help low-
er the risk for Dengue Fever and other mosquito-borne illnesses,
Sheen explained.
"Residents should understand that fogging alone does not kill
off the mosquito that transmits Dengue," she said. "Moreover,
fogging too soon following rains is ineffective as mosquitoes lay
their eggs in stagnant water and it takes at least two weeks for
those egos to hatch."
The fogging is being conducted in phases at times alternating
between both districts from 6 to 9 p.m. The program kicked off
Thursday, August 5, and will wrap up on August 13. On St. John,
fogging will be on Wednesday, August 11, in both Cruz Bay and
Coral Bay.
Additional schedules will follow throughout the hurricane sea-
son which ends November 30.
Dengue Fever is caused by a virus transmitted by the Aedes
I',.\ ', mosquito which can breed in man-made receptacles such
as flower pots, pet dishes, and in areas of abandoned vehicles and
tires where water can collect.
Health officials continue to urge residents to scour their yards
after heavy rains and empty out receptacles that hold stagnant wa-
ter. Residents can report large pools of stagnant water to Environ-
mental Health Division in St. Thomas/St. John district at 774-9000
ext. 462 or 715-5111.
Sheen also reminded healthcare providers that Dengue Fever is
a reportable disease and all medical agencies, clinics and private
physicians territory-wide are required to report any such cases to
DOH Epidemiologist Dr. Eugene Tull.
Residents with asthma and other respiratory problems, or indi-
viduals with compromised immune systems, are urged to take the
necessary precautions such as keeping windows closed to ensure
that their health is not compromised when fogging is conducted in
their neighborhood.

IEKHS Orientation Schedule Set

intendent Jeanette Smith-Barry announced important dates and

Jahlil Ward Granted Third Trial for Cockayne Murder

Kamal Thomas and Anselmo Boston Face Sentencing on August 30

By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
More than three years after
21-year-old Jamie Cockayne was
stabbed to death on a Cruz Bay
street, V.I. Superior Court Judge
Brenda Hollar ordered a new trial
for the man who has already been
convicted of the murder by two
separate juries.
In an order handed down on July
23, Hollar granted Jahlil Ward, 22,
of Estate Gifft Hill a new trial due
to a prosecutorial error.
This is the second time Hol-
lar has granted Ward a new trial.
He was convicted of first degree
murder in October 2008, a ruling
which Hollar threw out in April
2009. Then the jury in Ward's sec-
ond trial, in December 2009, hand-
ed down a second-degree murder
Ward filed another motion for a
new trial in January 2010 claiming
he did not get a fair trial due to er-
rors on behalf of the prosecution in
admitting unredacted statements
and excluding a different state-
ment from evidence.
"A serious miscarriage of jus-
tice will occur if Ward's conviction
stands since the verdict is hinged
on uncorroborated confessions al-
legedly made by Ward to a series
of individuals, whose testimony
was impeached and who each had
a bias against Ward," according to
Hollar's July 23 opinion agreeing
with Ward's motion.
Hollar has not set a date for
Ward's third trial, but she did
schedule sentencing for two men

who were convicted of assaulting
Cockayne hours before he was
stabbed to death.
Kamal Thomas and Anselmo
Boston, who were both convicted
of third-degree assault and weap-
ons charges, will be sentenced on
August 30.
For Thomas, 21, and Boston,
34, that should mark the end of
the road for trials, appeals and mo-
tions. For Ward and the Cockayne
family, their years-long journey
through the Virgin Islands justice
system continues.
Hollar had not set a date yet
for Ward's third trial and V.I. De-
partment of Justice officials were
still considering their options as of
press time.
"The government is review-
ing and digesting the order to de-
termine what its next steps will
be," said DOJ spokesperson Sara
Cockayne, a Pennsylvania resi-
dent, had lived on St. John for sev-
eral months when he had a run-in
with Thomas, Boston and Ward in
the former Cruz Bay nightclub the
Front Yard Bar.
On the night of June 18, 2007,
Cockayne got into an altercation
with the three St. John men in-
side the bar. The men, each carry-
ing sticks, followed Cockayne up
the street toward Dolphin Market
where they surrounded him and
beat him.
Several hours later, during the
early morning hours of June 19,
2007, Ward followed Cockayne up
the street and stabbed him to death

outside of the Fashion Palace, ac-
cording to prosecutors.
Ward stabbed Cockayne several
times, including a fatal blow in the
femoral artery, before fleeing on
foot, and asking a resident in the
area for a ride, prosecutors alleged
during both trials.
Cockayne was found on the
street in Cruz Bay bleeding pro-
fusely and died before emergency
medical officials arrived at the
In the wake of the 2007 mur-
der, Cockayne's parents lambasted
the V.I. Police Department in the
national media for what they be-
lieved to be shoddy investigative
work. Appearing on national tele-
vision shows like Larry King Live
and Greta van Susteren's On the
Record, the Cockaynes demanded
"Justice for Jamie," a cry for which
they continue to call.
Thomas and Boston were arrest-
ed in August 2007 and Ward was
arrested almost a year later, in June
2008. All three men were initially
slapped with first degree murder,
first degree assault and weapons
charges. They all faced the same
jury in their first trial, which was
joined, in October 2008.
That jury found Ward alone
guilty of first degree murder, with
Thomas and Boston guilty of third-
degree assault and weapons charg-
es. After the verdicts were handed
down attorneys for all three men
filed motions for new trials.
Ward's conviction was over-
turned when prosecutors handed
over a statement from a convict

who was in a jail cell next to
Thomas. Daryl Martens was in-
terviewed by the prosecution in
September 2007, and stated that
Thomas had confessed to the mur-
der. Prosecutors, however, didn't
hand that piece of evidence over to
Ward's attorney until four months
after the conviction.
Thomas and Boston were grant-
ed new trials after it was revealed
that the Cockayne family had paid
reward money to several witnesses
who had testified during the trial.
This time around, Ward's trial
was separated from that of Thomas
and Boston. Ward faced his second

convicted of second degree mur-

a crime of violence.
Boston and Thomas faced their
second jury in March 2010 and
were both found guilty of simple
assault, third degree assault, and
weapons charges. Thomas alone
was also convicted of obstruction
of justice and threatening wit-

Resident Launching National Alliance

Part-time Love City resident
Kathleen Campbell is looking to
change that reality by starting a St.
John chapter of the National Alli-
ance on Mental Illness (NAMI).
"I am hoping to help families
who are dealing with mental ill-
ness," said Campbell. "To help
them understand what it is they
are dealing with, to help them be
better equipped to seek out treat-
ment for their family members and
empower them so they can ask for
what they need."
Campbell, originally from
Bucks County, Pennsylvania, got
involved with the national orga-
nization about 14 years ago after
a personal experience with mental
"My father had schizophrenia,
which was very traumatic, and
then I had some personal experi-

is for family members to cope,"
she said.

cording to Campbell.
The association focuses on em-
powerment and equips members
with the tools they need to advo-
cate for their loved ones suffering
with mental illness, Campbell ex-
"NAMI is a support, educa-
tion and advocacy group for peo-
ple with mental illness and their
families or caregivers," she said.
"While there is a support group in
St. Thomas, what they don't have
is the education program. It was
the education program which re-
ally transformed our local affiliate
here in Bucks County."
"The education program is real-
ly what empowers family members
to be better advocates fortheirfam-
ily members and it results in better
mental health care for them and for
our country," Campbell said. "The
education is key because it gives
you the tools you need to move

forward. We have support groups
here in Bucks County, but we get
a lot more people in the education
groups because there is a lot of
misinformation out there."
Through NAMI, Campbell
leads a 12-week education class,
which takes a wholistic approach
from educating about specific
mental illnesses to hosting empa-

"Family members can be really
resourceful once they know what
they're dealing with," said Camp-
bell. "There is a lack of informa-

Budding Authors Show off Skills Honed

at Three-week Young Writers Camp

By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
The V.I. Summer Creative
Writing Program's Young Writ-
ers Camp went to the birds last
The three-week summer camp
led by VISCWP founder and di-
rector Coreen Samuel wrapped up
on Friday, July 30, with an end of
session performance at St. John
School of the Arts where students
recited poetry, prose, performed a
dramatic piece and joined together
for a musical performance.
"This is a very important camp
and we're very excited to be a
partner in this," said SJSA execu-
tive director Jan Kinder.
Samuel launched the camp
three years ago after seeing what
a difference cultural-based writ-
ing programs had on her students
stateside, she explained.
"I was doing this up in the states
when I thought how we have to do
this here," said Samuel. "Three
years ago, with the help of Pas-
tor Sampson, we started the camp
with a small group of students at
the Lutheran Church hall. The idea
was to nurture the young writers
using their culture and the resourc-
es available here in the beautiful
Virgin Islands."
Since then Samuel has watched
the camp continually grow in
popularity and has partnered with
SJSA for the past two years to ex-
pand the children's opportunities.

COAST Extends Outreach to St. John

- Offering Help to Substance Abusers and Families

By Andrea Milam
St. John Tradewinds
The often forgotten population
of alcohol and substance abusers
on St. John and their families
- now have a place to turn thanks
to recent efforts by the Council on
Alcoholism and Drug Dependency
St. Thomas-St. John (COAST) to
extend their outreach to St. John.
The non-profit organization,
which was originally established
in 1975, has been reemerging over
the past two years after all but
closing its doors in 2004. COAST
extended its presence to St. John
with the recent opening of a St.
John office, located at the Market-
place, headed up by program man-
ager Hadiya Silcott.
"We're really trying to accom-
plish full expansion of our services
to the island of St. John, so we're
offering the same counseling and
advocacy services here that we do
on St. Thomas for families suffer-
ing from substance abuse," said
Silcott. "We provide direct ser-
vices to people who are abusing
substances and alcohol, as well
as counseling for family members
because it's a holistic problem."
Those in the St. Thomas-St.
John district suffering from an ad-
diction problem and their family
members only have to call COAST
to get the ball rolling, explained
the organization's executive direc-
tor, Shelley Williams, who came

to COAST in late 2008 fresh off
her post as director of the St. John
Community Crisis Center.
COAST partners with Alcohol-
ics Anonymous, Al-Anon and Nar-
cotics Anonymous, and they offer
mental health counseling. The or-
ganization hopes to eventually be
able to offer residential treatment,
which is sorely lacking in the terri-
tory, explained Williams.
"At the SJCCC, I identified that
many of our clients who needed
our assistance were unable to re-
ceive comprehensive help from us
because of the fact that they were
suffering from substance abuse or
alcoholism," said the COAST ex-
ecutive director. "I'd try to send
people from St. John to The Vil-
lage, which offers residential re-
habilitation in St. Croix, but often
times their beds were full. We had
very limited bed space for indi-
viduals who don't have insurance
to go to a residential facility state-
Williams is currently compiling
a funding proposal for the imple-
mentation of a residential treat-
ment facility in the St. Thomas-St.
John district, she added.
COAST is attempting to tackle
the problems of drug and alcohol
abuse in the territory in a holis-
tic way, with numerous outreach
programs. The VI.'s lax attitude
toward alcohol can lead to teenag-
ers trying alcohol a younger and

younger age, which COAST hopes
to combat with outreach in local
schools, explained Silcott.
"We have a very tolerant com-
munity when it comes to alcohol,
so we want to talk about it in the
schools," she said. "We want to
teach the students how to make
good decisions, and how you can
identify if you have a problem."
COAST also provides training
to businesses which sell alcohol in
an attempt to teach them the im-
portance of asking for ID, and how
to identify fake IDs.
"It's part of our culture to be re-
laxed, but we really need to check
for IDs," said Silcott. "A lot of
people look like they could be 18,
but they're not. We want to empha-
size that with local businesses."
COAST's holistic approach also
includes a program to help former
inmates to reintegrate into society,
efforts to change local policy re-
garding drugs and alcohol, and as-
sistance for victims of crime. The
agency is looking for volunteers
to assist in its St. John operations,
and also to act as mentors for re-
cently released prisoners. To seek
help, or to volunteer with COAST,
contact Silcott at 775-1255, or the
St. Thomas office at 775-3161.
"Just give us a call," said Sil-
cott. "Let us figure out how best
we can help you. We will connect
you to the service you need one
way or another."

It's Time To Get Ready for 12th Annual Love City Triathlon

By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
It's time to dust off those running shoes,
clean off the swim goggles and get those bi-
cycle gears checked.
The St. John Land Sharks is hosting the
12th annual Love City Triathlon on Sunday,
September 5, at 7 a.m. Participants can com-
pete solo or in teams of three or two with
one person both running and swimming.
For participants who just want to run and
swim, race officials are offering an Aqua-
thon this year as well. No teams will be al-
lowed to compete in the Aquathon.
For those in the triathlon, the morning
will kick off with a half-mile swim consist-
ing of two triangle loops in Maho Bay. After
athletes get out of the ocean, they'll pick up
their bikes and pedal to Cruz Bay on North
Shore Road.
Bicyclers will then race up Centerline
Road and turn back onto North Shore Road
at the Colombo Yogurt stand. The 14-mile
bike race wraps up at Annaberg Sugar Plan-
tation where triathlete racers will ditch their
bikes and start the event's running portion

by hightailing it up the stairs.
Incorporating the Annaberg stairs has
become a part of the Love City Triathlon
tradition, thanks to the participants, not the
"The first year we did it people gasped at
the stairs," said St. John Land Sharks presi-
dent Jude Woodcock. "Everyone hated it. So
the race committee decided to take the stairs
out, and we told people."
"Then the participants said they loved the
stairs," said Woodcock. "So we're keeping
the stairs and I think people really like hav-
ing that be part of the race."
After tackling the Annaberg stairs, the
triathlon runners will traverse a course be-
tween Francis Bay beach and Annaberg -
with a jaunt down the Leinster Bay trail as
well for a full four mile course.
Athletes taking part in the Aquathon will
have a different starting time than the triath-
lon racers, but their race will begin at Maho
Bay also.
After completing the same half-mile
triangle swimming course at Maho, Aqua-
thon participants will run a 3.4 mile course,

1/2-mile swim
14-mile bike
5K+ run

which will include the Annaberg stairs but
not the Leinster Bay trail.
While there are no teams allowed to com-
pete in the Aquathon, organizers have made
the running portion of the race just a little
more than 5 kilometers.
"We wanted to make the race a little more
user-friendly, so the run is just a bit more
than a 5K," said Woodcock. "But there are
no teams allowed for the Aquathon, you
must do both the run and the swim."
Organizers are capping the race at 100
participants, so athletes are encouraged to
register early. On St. John stop by the Tap
Room to register $35 for solo entries and
$30 each for team members. On St. Thomas
registration is available at all three Carib-
bean Surf Company locations.

Registration is open until September 4 or
until 100 participants sign up and there will
be no registration the day of the race.
There is a mandatory pre-race meeting
for all participants on Saturday evening,
September 4, at the Maho Bay Campground
pavilion from 4 to 5:30 p.m. T-shirts and
race numbers will be distributed at the meet-
The St. John Land Sharks is also hosting
a post-race beach picnic and awards cere-
mony at Francis Bay following the race.
While the race is the perfect way to
take advantage of all St. John has to offer,
the views aren't bad either, Woodcock ex-
"I think spectators come out because you
can see a lot of hot bodies and girls and boys
running nearly naked," she said. "With the
swimming, biking and running, it's just a
great way to take advantage of our island."
As one of a few events of its kind in
the Virgin Islands, the Love City Triathlon
draws participants from the BVIs, Nevis, St.
Martin and other nearby islands.

Runoff Backup from VIWMA Treatment

Plant Continues To Plague Roadway

By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
In the wake of recent heavy rainfalls which
drenched St. John, one high-traffic area of South
Shore Road has yet to completely drain.
The drainage channel in front of the entrance to
The Marketplace has been flooded for more than two
weeks with brown, muddy water, deep potholes and
high traffic making the area a mess for drivers and
pedestrians alike.
While the water comes from the gut above The
Marketplace, it is the backup at V.I. Waste Manage-
ment Authority's Cruz Bay waste water treatment
plant that is causing the flooding on the road, accord-
ing to a former Federal Highway Administration en-
"The drainage backup through the waste wa-
ter plant site is causing the flooding in front of The
Marketplace," said Jerry Runyon. "I was under the
impression that this gut outlet improvement was sup-
posed to be done with the construction of the sew-
age treatment plant, but I guess was never included
in their work."
"This outlet is important to be kept clean and open
as it is the upland area's drainage basin main outlet,"
said Runyon. "Blockage here affects both pedestrian
and vehicle traffic causing hazardous conditions."
Improvement to the gut has apparently been on the
drawing board for years, but now is the perfect time to
get the project completed, Runyon added.
"This is a long over-due project, which should

have been made a part of the present stimulus project
on Route 104," said the former FHA engineer. "And,
if not, it should be included with the ongoing proj-
ect. With the ARRA stimulus package presently being
administered though the Department of Public Works
for the improvement of Route 104, this would be a
good time to address this problem with two agencies
- DPW and VIWMA working together."

Treasure Map "Win a Trip Back" Villa To be Furnished by Catered To...Vacation Homes

By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
One lucky family will be living
large in a luxury villa next summer
thanks to St. John Treasure Map
and Catered To...Vacation Homes.
Launched by Jennifer Knowles
and Denise Barbier last year, the
St. John Treasure Map has proven
to be a popular activity for numer-
ous visitors. Both a guide to the
island and an actual activity which
takes people across the island to
find answers to several riddles and
questions, the map has also been
popular with local businesses.
Each family which completed
all five of the treasure hunts and
solved the riddle was eligible for
a chance to win a free trip back
to St. John, complete with a free
villa, rental car, gift certificates to
local eateries and more.

Out of the six villa management
companies which advertised on
the map last year, Catered To was
drawn at random to supply a week-
long villa stay valued at $3,500.
In exchange for that, the villa
will be featured on the Island Trea-
sure Map website and Catered To...
Vacation Homes will also receive
a complimentary ad on next year's
map, explained Knowles.
The family's name will be
drawn in mid-December, so some-
one is surely in for an early holi-
day present in a few months.
This is the last year the treasure
hunts will be used as a basis for
the Treasure Map give-away. Bar-
bier and Knowles have been busy
getting the 2011 St. John Treasure
Map organized and have devised a
new way for people to win a return

St. John Treasure Map owners Denise Barbier, far left,

Instead of filling out a treasure

favorite photographs of St. John,
which will be posted on www.Is-
landTreasureMaps.com, and the

public will vote for a winner each
month. At the end of next year,
one name out of the 12 photogra-
phy winners will win the St. John

"We got a lot of feedback this
year," said Knowles. "People
loved the treasure map. The only
issue was that people didn't want
to spend five days of their vacation
doing all of the treasure hunts."
"So we're keeping the activities
and we're adding a few like a retail
crossword puzzle and a restaurant
word search," Knowles said.
There are still treasure hunts
on the map, three in the new ver-
sion instead of five, and Knowles
and Barbier plan to expand their

Rotary Club Welcomes District Gov. Diana White

By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Rotary Club of St. John mem-
bers welcomed new District Gov-
ernor Diana White on her first
official visit to the club for their
meeting on Friday, July 30, at the
Westin Resort and Villas.
White is the first female gov-
ernor of the Northern Caribbean
District, which includes the U.S.
Virgin Islands. Originally from
England, White traveled across
the globe as a banking official
for Barclays before settling on St.
Thomas 25 years ago.
She first joined Rotary Interna-
tional in 1979 and has been an ac-

tive member ever since. White is
a Paul Harris Fellow and a former
Rotary International director and
assistant governor for the district.
Since being sworn in as Dis-
trict Governor several weeks ago,
White has been traveling exten-
sively and relished the opportuni-
ty to meet with the St. John group
close to home.
"It's great to be back home and
making this official visit to St.
John," said White.
Clubs will focus this year on
making Rotary bigger, better and
"We want to explain to the
world what Rotary does, which is

build communities and bridge con-
tinents," she said. "The projects
we do are our advertisements."
Rotary International is also
looking to increase its member-
ship, especially among younger
citizens, White added.
White was also on hand to
swear in new officers of the Ro-
tary Club of St. John, including
Bruce Munro as president, and
Bob Schlessinger as vice presi-
dent, president-elect and secre-
The group is already gearing
up for its annual fundraiser, Fla-
vors of St. John, which is sched-
uled for Saturday, November 13.

Celebrate America The Hypocrite

The NBC Evening News reported last night, July 20, that a woman
in the U.S. Department of Agriculture was fired for speaking in public
of her own personal moral growth in moving away from a desire to
(reversely) discriminate.
According to the report, only the discriminatory desire was selec-
tively aired by one or more other media outlets, apparently in order
to negatively portray the woman and the organization (NAACP) she
was addressing.
It seems this slanted news item got her promptly fired. And the fir-
ing stands, at least as of the time of the NBC report, even though the
fuller story placing her remarks in context emerged soon after.
This is precisely America the hyper hypocrite: in an acute, and also
chronic, state of psychological denial of her own deep and abiding
prejudice, she jumps at the chance to denigrate by casting an example
of moral growth in tolerance and respect as an example of intolerance
- the sort of behavior that she, America, (by which she means the
United States) does not tolerate.
"Political correctness" is a pejorative term employed to castigate
as hypocritical the social and legal pressures for tolerance and respect
for difference, which it seems those who employ the term are against.
The true hypocrisy (this is not an oxymoron) is displayed by those
who make ostensibly politically correct sanctimonious condemna-
tions in a game of"gotcha" or as an excuse for deliberately obtuse in-
comprehension of the moral growth this country desperately needs.
Nicholas Childs

from the publisher

You're in my thoughts daily.

I would like to make a few comments about Mr.
Andrew Rutnik's recent "Just My Opinion" column,
the one entitled "Women's Rights."
Mr. Rutnik states his thoughts about a number of
women's rights that he believes should be more wide-
ly acknowledged and respected. I would like to con-
sider the first of these: that the mother of an unborn
child is the sole person who has the right to decide
whether that unborn child should be aborted or not, in
the case of an unwanted or unplanned for pregnancy.
One of the foundational assumptions that Mr. Rut-
nik makes is that the state "... cannot take control of a
fertilized egg and call it a citizen."
At least two things are being said here. One ap-
pears to be that an egg produced by a female human
body, and that has later been fertilized by a sperm cell
produced by a male human body, is something other
than a human being.
However, scientists tell us a couple of things in this
regard. First of all, if the DNA molecule in the fertil-
ized egg is analyzed, it is always found to be a human
DNA molecule. In fact, if the fertilized egg is allowed
to grow to the point where a baby is bor, and the
DNA molecule taken from any cell of that newborn
child is analyzed, it will be found to be identical to
the DNA of that very first cell, the cell we have called
the fertilized egg.
The second thing that scientists tell us is that if a
DNA molecule is taken from a cell of the mother, and
then compared with the DNA molecule of the fertil-
ized egg, they will be found to be different.
In other words, both DNA molecules will definite-
ly be found to derive from human beings, and further,
from two different human beings.
It is certainly true that a fertilized human egg looks
very different from the various human beings that
Mr. Rutnik and I see every day, but we would both
have to admit that there was a time many years ago
when he and I looked exactly like a fertilized human
egg. We would say this because we know that this
is what human beings look like when they are very,
very young.
A year or so later, human beings are called infants,
and their appearance has changed quite dramatically.
We are not surprised at this because we know that this

is what human beings look like a few months after
Then, some 60 or 70 years later, when the same
human beings get to be the ages of Mr. Rutnik and
me, one sees another very dramatic change in appear-
ance. Again, no surprise, because everybody knows
that that's what older human beings look like.
So, when Mr. Rutnik says that the state cannot call
a fertilized egg a citizen, I'm sure that he does not
mean to say that the egg is not a human being. This
would contradict what scientists tell us.
No, I believe it is more likely that Mr. Rutnik is
saying that when human beings are very, very young
they do not deserve to be afforded the same legal pro-
tections that he and I enjoy; in particular, they do not
have any particular legal right to life.
So, if the mother of a very, very young human de-
cides to take the life of that little one in the case of
an unwanted or unplanned for pregnancy the state
is correct when it says that no legal offense has been
I don't agree that very, very young human beings
have no innate right to life, and if I understand some
of the other statements that Mr. Rutnik makes cor-
rectly, I don't believe he does either.
For example, he states quite correctly that, "The
right of a human to exist as a separate and unique be-
ing from the state is a basic right for all humanity."
The scientists tell us that very, very young human
beings are...human beings. So clearly Mr. Rutnik and
I agree that these very young folks have this basic hu-
man right to exist just as certainly as he and I do.
As another example, Mr. Rutnik tells us that, "The
real issue is not pro-choice or pro-life, but pro-hu-
man." Though this is not quite the way that I would
phrase it, it does remind us of the point that I hope
that I am bringing forward: the most important ques-
tion we should ask ourselves in discussions like this
is "What is the 'pro-human' aspect?"
So, in any discussion concerning who has the right
to condemn a very, very young human being to death,
in the case of an unwanted or unplanned for pregnan-
cy, I believe that science and a bit of thought must
lead us to believe that no one has that right.

The St. John Roadway Committee is acutely aware
that funding sources, even for planning, may not be
readily available now or in the near future given the
current fiscal limitations. However, the Committee
feels that some funding must be designated and dedi-
cated to planning. We feel the St. John Capital Im-

While many roadway and transportation issues
have been discussed directly with government offi-

we have concluded that few, if any, have been ade-

concerns are being taken as a priority by the Admin-
The Committee therefore requests timely answers
to these questions:
What are the immediate plans of the Administra-
tion in regard to necessary road repairs on St. John
and what budgeted funds have been set aside for this
What are the intermediate plans (1 to 3 years)?
What are the long-term plans (up to 10 years)?

Repair or redesign the sidewalk from the corer of

Annual Bar Wars Raises Funds for ACC

St. John Tradewinds
The 10th Annual Bar Wars competition at the
Beach Bar on Saturday, July 31, raised much needed
funds for the St. John Animal Care Center.
Bar owners Cat and Allan MacPhee continued their
efforts to support the struggling shelter by hosting an
event which included several teams completing an
obstacle course on the sandy waterfront at the Beach
Bar in Cruz Bay.
The obstacle course, designed to test teams' bar-

tending and service skills, took participants through
water and sand challenges in a timed competition.
Teams progressed to the next round by winning, or
bribing the judges. "Bribe money" and other proceeds
were donated to the ACC.
Congratulations to all the spirited participants and
attendees, and kudos to the winning team, "Intoxica-
tion Station," which took home the coveted winner's
title from Morgan's Mango and Rhumb Lines by a

VIPD Honors Officers of the Month

St. John Tradewinds
The V.I. Police Department
hosted an Officer of the Month
ceremony Wednesday, July 28, on
St. Thomas.
Six St. Thomas and St. John of-
ficers were selected for the months
of March, April and May for their
achievements in the particular
months. Also, one officer was se-
lected for the month of June.
Supervisors heaped praises on
the selected officers, who were
voted the best in the monthly se-
lections. The officers received cer-
tificates, weekend hotel stays and
other giveaways from the Hotel
and Tourism Association and the
St. John Officers Honored
Officer Richard Dominguez was
chosen as one of the officers of the
month for March. He is the only
K-9 officer who lives on St. John
and is assigned to St. John. He and
his partner Ares, a German Shep-
pard, recently conducted a Canine
Training session for St. John offi-
cers. The training familiarized the
officers on the ways canines can
be utilized to retrieve and locate
persons or other items.
In March Officer Dominquez

made three arrests. Two were
felony cases and one was a mis-
demeanor. Through his diligence,
more than $4,500 in jewelry and
other personal items previously
stolen were recovered. Officer
Dominguez is dedicated to police
work. He often helps his fellow
officers and is engaging and ap-
proachable to the St. John com-
Officer Dahlia Richardson was

chosen as one of the officers of the
month for April. She is assigned to
the Patrol Division of the Leander
Jurgen Command. An extrovert by
nature, the community regularly
sees her patrolling the Coral Bay
on a regular basis, communicating
and interacting with St. John resi-
Officer Richardson's methods
of community policing benefits
the VIPD as it helps to build com-
munity partnerships and relation-
ships. Her transition from a former
Police Auxiliary officer into a full
time officer exemplifies her dedi-
cation and commitment in a law
enforcement career.
Officer Sharon Bachan was hon-
ored as one of the officers of the
month for May. She is stationed
at Leander Jurgen Command. As
a former Police Auxiliary Officer
she has shown a readiness to ac-
cept the challenges of a law en-
forcement career.
In May Officer Bachan handled
seven arrests, including four mis-
demeanors, one incident and two
domestic violence cases. Addi-
tionally she assisted with traffic
enforcement initiatives which re-
sulted in 31 traffic citations.

National Alliance on Mental Illness Chapter on St. John

Continued from Page 4
coupled with a substance abuse issue.
"Many people have a hard time differen-
tiating between what is normal adolescence
and what is an illness," said Campbell. "So
we look at understanding these illnesses as
biological brain disorders and we look at
the biology of recovery. We give them skills
and empathy workshops, problem solving
workshops and self-care workshops."
Campbell has been trained to train NAMI
teachers and is leading a course on St. John
in November. She is hoping to train four
teachers each from St. Croix, St. Thomas
and St. John and is still looking for the Love
City participants.
The only requirement for the 12-week
course is that all participants must be family
members or caregivers of people with men-
tal illnesses.
"It's called family-to-family and it's a
peer-run education program," said Camp-
bell. "It's the dynamic of that peer-run ed-
ucation that is really different than having
someone who never lived with a person or
cared for a person with a mental illness tell
you what do to. You get really bonded with
other people through the program."
"This is a different level of understanding
and that is why it works so well there is a

common experience there," she said.
There is no charge for the classes, but
donations to keep NAMI work going strong
are always accepted, Campbell added.
"The classes are free, but we would love
donations to support NAMI," said Camp-
bell. "After being trained, the teachers would
then, in turn, go out and offer the course to
the community and then, hopefully, support
groups are established out of these classes."
"People feel really alone with these ill-
nesses and seeing that there are other people
who are dealing with the same issues makes
a big difference," she said.
After dealing with a family member with
a mental illness, Campbell knows full well
how difficult it can be and feels lucky to be
able to help others grappling with the same
types of issues, she explained.
"I feel very blessed in my life," said
Campbell. "I have a wonderful family and
we have wonderful opportunities and yet I
had this illness around me growing up and
it was very traumatic. It's a spiritual experi-
ence for me that I can give back to others
because I feel like I have so much that I've
been given."
To sign up for the NAMI training or for
more details, email Campbell at campbell-
catm(gmail.com or call 215-794-5856.

they now know many different species of
VISCWP Young Writers' Camp stu-
dents also enjoyed touring Annaberg
Sugar Plantation ruins where they learned
how to make dumb bread, made bird
feeders with Delroy "Ital" Anthony, prac-
ticed writing with Faye Fredericks, heard
from local authors and created their own
universe with Dr. Kelly Hunter.
"We were able to expand our camp
in the afternoons to include basically
anyone who had something to offer the
kids," said Samuel. "Writing is not just
about writing, it's also about experienc-
ing. The students had experiences so they
had something to write about."
Campers showed off their writing skills
during the July 30 end of camp event at
SJSA by reciting prose and poetry about
a variety of subjects. From detailed sci-
entific explanations of certain birds to
personal narratives of wonderment, each

of the writing camp students showed a
mastery of expression.
After sharing their words, students
took to the SJSA stage and performed a
dramatic interpretation of St. John author
Cristina Kessler's book "Jubela" about a
baby hippo who loses its mother.
To end the program, Kinder led all
of the Young Writers' Camp students
- some on vocals, some on xylophone,
others on drums and still others dancing
- in a rousing African song of welcome.
In addition to thanking all of the teachers
and volunteers, Kinder also thanked the
community for its support.
"Almost everyone in this room re-
ceived a scholarship," said Kinder.
"Thanks to the community who made
that possible."

12th Annual Love City Triathlon

Continued from Page 7
With such competition, the Land Sharks
created the Inter-Island award, given to the
top finishing team of solo triathletes.
"We've been giving out the award from
the beginning," said Woodcock. "You have
to do the race solo and you have to have a
team of three people doing the race along
with you, and at least one of them has to
be a woman. We add up the times and the
winning island takes home the award."
St. Croix is the defending champion
of the Inter-Island award, but Woodcock
though St. Thomas might have a chance to
steal it away this year, but they'll have to

be pretty impressive.
In addition to having the inter-island
title, St. Croix's Theresa Harper owns the
female solo triathlon. Harper has competed
in all 11 of the races so far and is lined up
to defend her title again this year.
Maho Bay Campground is also offer-
ing a special deal for Love City Triathlon
participants. Anyone taking part in the race
is eligible for a free night's stay the night
before the event, but reservations must be
made by September 2.
To make a reservation at Maho Bay call
715-0500. For more information on the
Love City Triathlon call 779-1416.
