ST. JOHN


The Community Newspaper Since 1972 St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Visitors and residents with
mobility issues will soon be
able to get an up-close look at
the Cinnamon Bay estate ruins
thanks to an exciting project
funded by Friends of VI. Na-
tional Park.
Seeds for the Cinnamon Bay
Accessible Trail were actually
planted about five years ago
when a group of accessibility
specialists hosted a conference
at Maho Bay Campground. The
group looked at areas of Love
City which could be relatively
easily made more accessible
for people with mobility prob-
lems.
Rosanne Ramos Lloyd, prin-
cipal of Inclusive By Design,
was part of that conference five
years ago. Since then, Lloyd
has made St. John her home
and is lending her expertise to
Friends' accessibility projects.
Last year Friends of VINP
oversaw construction of the
Francis Bay Walking Trail
boardwalk, opening the area
to people who would not oth-
erwise be able to watch the
prime bird viewing pond.
While Friends officials plan to
expand that boardwalk even
further, they are focusing now
on the Cinnamon Bay Acces-
sible Trail.
Lloyd designed plans for the
trail, which starts across the
street from the Cinnamon Bay
Campground parking area. The

Wharton Smith Wins Bid To Construct

151 Parking Spaces at Enighed Pond

VIPA Board Votes Down Installation of Turnstiles at Ferry Terminal


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Hope is finally in sight for St. John residents frus-
trated with the daily fight to find parking in Cruz
Bay.
After numerous delays, including permit modifica-
tions and bids over the agency's budget, the V.I. Port
Authority governing board voted in late September
to approve construction of a temporary parking lot at
Enighed Pond.
Wharton Smith won the contract, valued at
$988,450, to build a 151-space gravel parking lot on
the perimeter of the filled area at the Enighed Pond
Marine Freight Facility.
While it remained unclear when the project would
get started, once underway officials expect the project
to take about three months, according to VIPA.
Turnstiles at Ferry Terminal
During the late September meeting, the VIPA board
also voted to not install the promised turnstiles at the
Red Hook ferry terminal. The authority had long
planned to install the turnstiles, and a coin machine,
in order to collect a 50-cent fee from every passenger
for upkeep of the facility.
When news of the impending installation of the
devices spread, however, Don Porter led the crusade
to stop the project. Porter, who was recently elected
to the St. Thomas/St. John Chamber of Commerce's
board of directors, launched a campaign to stop the
turnstiles.
By circulating emails, urging residents to call sen-
ators and the governor and write letters against the
turnstiles, Porter quickly got the message across to
VIPA that the community was not in favor of the pro-
posed turnstiles.
"The turnstile issue came up again at a PSC meet-
ing a month ago or so and I brought it up at a cham-
ber meeting and everyone was against it," said Porter.
"So I just decided to pursue it. A lot of people joined
the effort and wrote letters against the turnstiles."


"But if we're going to collect fees,
we have to be efficient in the way
that we collect those fees. Turnstiles
are not the way to go."
Don Porter, St. John resident


Porter contacted VIPA officials and was told that
the turnstiles were on their way to the territory, which
sent him into action.
"I thought that instead of allowing an unworkable
situation to start and then have to fight against it after
they're already installed, it would be better to launch
a full campaign and not have them installed," Porter
said.
The St. John community responded quickly to Por-
ter's call, and VIPA was flooded with phone calls and
emails opposing the turnstiles.
While no one was opposed to paying the fee, it
seemed to Porter that a better solution than a coin ma-
chine and turnstiles could be found, he added.
"We were not arguing about the fee," Porter said.
"But if we're going to collect fees, we have to be ef-
ficient in the way that we collect those fees. Turnstiles
are not the way to go."
At VIPA's September meeting, officials cited de-
lays in obtaining the machines and public opposition
when the board recommended to terminate its agree-
ment with Perey Turnstiles Inc. for the machines, ac-
cording to a report in the VI. Daily News.
"Officials plan to explore other ways to collect the
fee," according to the report.
VIPAboard members Department of Tourism Com-
missionerBeverly Nicholson-Doty, Robert O'Connor,
VI. Labor Commissioner Albert Bryan, V.I. Attorney
General Vincent Frazer and Public Works Commis-
sioner Darryl Smalls, were present at the meeting, ac-
cording to the report in the VI. Daily News.

Severe Cases of Dengue Fever Continue To Climb on St. John

Residents urged to take disease seriously and report cases


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Department of Health officials
have stepped up their dengue fever
education campaign as the num-
ber of severe cases of the disease
reported on St. John continued to
climb.
Borne by the Aedes ,.. -l ,
mosquito, dengue fever can vary
greatly in severity, from caus-
ing a minor headache to the life-
threatening dengue hemorrhagic
fever. St. John resident Sandie
Brown died in August reportedly
from complications from dengue
hemorrhagic fever, which attacks
platelets in the blood stream.
Since then at least three addi-
tional cases of dengue fever have
been reported on St. John. In the
St. Thomas/St. John District -
which is how DOH keeps records
for the disease there have been
66 reported cases of dengue fever,
according to officials.
Of the 66 cases, 20 have been
confirmed dengue fever, 39 were
listed as "suspected" and seven
were listed as "probable." There
have been no confirmed cases of
dengue fever on St. Croix, accord-
ing to DOH officials.
The department's Environmen-
tal Health Division is scheduled
to fog for mosquitoes on St. John
on October 14 and 26, and urged


residents to remove all standing
water on their properties in an ef-
fort to limit the insects' breeding
grounds.
As news of severe cases of den-
gue fever spread across St. John in
recent weeks, Family Nurse Prac-
titioner Judith Whitley emailed
patients and friends urging them to
take the disease seriously.
Whitley advised anyone with
flu like symptoms fever, rash,
headache or muscle pain to
seek immediate medical attention
and get a complete blood count.
"There have been many deaths
in Puerto Rico and several here,"
Whitley wrote. "Take this seri-
ously."
Just as severe as the form of
dengue fever being reported on
the island is the lack of platelets
in local blood banks, according to
Whitley.
"Recommendations were made
a year ago for Schneider Hospi-
tal to utilize their blood bank and
donate blood products to the Red
Cross in exchange for platelets,
which are needed for dengue,"
said Whitley.
That recommendation, how-
ever, has yet to be implemented.
If platelets are needed, they must
be sent from Puerto Rico, which
can take hours, time critical for a
patient whose platelets are quick-


To report dengue fever cases, DOH officials urge
healthcare providers to call 773-1311, ext. 3241.

To report large pools of stagnant water, contact
the Environmental Health Division on St. Thomas at
774-9000, ext. 4641.


ly dropping as a result of dengue
hemorrhagic fever, as St. John res-
ident Debbie Hayes can attest.
Hayes was still recovering from
dengue fever last week, although
the worst of her symptoms were
over, she explained.
"I woke up on Sunday morning
to go to Sandie Brown's memorial
and I was really sick," said Hayes.
"I had a horrible headache, a very
high fever and unbelievable body
pain. I couldn't believe it."
Hayes immediately went to the
doctor, where she had blood taken
for a dengue fever test, the results
of which were not available as of
press time. Despite being the "per-
fect patient," Hayes watched as
each blood test over the next few
days revealed her platelet levels
plummeting.
"I came down with this on Sep-
tember 5 and I just stayed in bed
and drank plenty of liquids," said
Hayes. "I had a fever between 102
and 104 degrees. My doctor told
me I had to go get blood tests and


I knew my platelets were drop-
ping."
A healthy adult's platelet count
will range from between 150,000
to 400,000 and Hayes, was down
to 95,000, then 70,000 and quickly
even down to 60,000, she ex-
plained.
"At that point, when my plate-
lets got down to 60,000, they
wanted to test me every day," said
Hayes. "I was just staying in bed
and drinking liquids and there was
nothing to do about it."
Several days later, Hayes went
to see Dr. May Trieu, an acupunc-
ture practitioner.
"She treated me twice in a three-
day period and I really feel that do-
ing the acupuncture was incredibly
helpful to me," said Hayes. "With-
in 12 hours my fever was down to
99 degrees and within the three
days my platelets had doubled."
While there is no treatment or
cure for dengue fever or dengue
hemorrhagic fever, Hayes certainly
felt relief from Trieu's treatments.

"I know this severe form of
dengue is going around and I just
wanted to let people know that
this really worked for me," said
Hayes.
Health officials urge anyone
with flu-like symptoms to get
tested for dengue fever, which cur-
rently costs about $200, but could
be free, according to Whitley.
The Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention in Puerto Rico do
offer free dengue screenings, but
the program has not been imple-
mented in the Virgin Islands, ac-
cording to Whitley.
In the meantime, DOH officials
have been ramping up their dengue
education campaign and last week
the department's epidemiologist
warned of the seriousness of the
current outbreak of the disease.
"People can die if they don't
seek immediate care," said Dr.
Eugene Tull. "Compounding this
dengue fever outbreak is a flu out-
break, symptoms of which mirror
dengue fever."
To report dengue fever cases,
DOH officials urge healthcare pro-
viders to call 773-1311, ext. 3241.

water, contact the Environmental
Health Division on St. Thomas at

Omnibus Bill Pushes Coral Bay Park Closer to Reality


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
A major territorial park in the
heart of Coral Bay became one
step closer to reality last month
when the VI. Senate approved a
bill which included a provision to
allow the government to acquire a
170-acre parcel of land in Estate
Carolina.
Senators approved the Omnibus
Authorization Act on September
22, and among several provisions
which pertain specifically to St.
John, the act authorizes the gover-
nor to purchase Parcels 7 and 12
in Estate Carolina. The act also
appropriates funds both to acquire
the land and to then establish a ter-
ritorial park on the property.
The bill was sent to Governor
John deJongh who had 10 days
from September 23 to take action
on it. As of press time, deJongh
had not signed the bill into law.
Parcel 12 Estate Carolina is a 1.6
acre waterfront site located across
the street from the Kings Hill Road
turnoff. Parcel 7 consists of about
170 acres of land beginning along
Kings Hill Road roughly a half
mile from Parcel 12. The property
then stretches along the valley and
up the hillsides comprising most
of the Coral Bay valley area.
The provisions in the Omnibus
Bill also provide the appropriation
required for the purchase of Parcel
12, and an additional $500,000 to

The recently passed Omnibus Authorization Act includes
a provision for the governor to acquire 170 acres of land in
Estate Carolina, above, making the largest privately owned
parcel of land on the island into a territorial park.


develop a conservation and recre-
ation plan for the property and a
design for the Territorial Park.
The land contains the well-
preserved ruins of a sugar mill,
sugar plantation and other struc-
tures from the plantation and post-
colonial eras. The owners of the
property, four beneficiaries of the
Egbert Marsh Trust represented by
Sheldon Marsh, wanted the land to
be preserved for future generations
of Virgin Islanders.
The only problem seemed to be
the price tag of about $12 million.
The opportunity to preserve the
land, however, caught the atten-
tion of a national non-profit com-
pany which works with the U.S.
Department of Agriculture's For-


est Legacy Program.
Senator at Large Craig
Barshinger met with officials from
The Conservation Fund on St.
Croix a few months ago and tried
to get them interested in the Coral
Bay park project, he explained.
"They had a few projects they
were considering and I made the
plug why this would be the best
use of their money," Barshinger
said. "They decided that St. John
would be what they apply for this
year, so The Conservation Fund
selected us."
The V.I. Department of Agri-
culture is applying for a $6.5 mil-
lion grant from the Forest Legacy
Program for the 2011 fiscal year.
In order to be approved, however,


the grant can only cover 75 per-
cent of the purchase price, with the
other 25 percent coming from lo-
cal sources.
If signed by the governor, the
Omnibus Bill Act appropriates the
needed $3.5 million from the St.
John Capital Improvement Fund.
Money which only became avail-
able a few months ago when the
senate voted -and then voted to
over-ride the governor's veto to
stop using the St. John Capital Im-
provement Fund to pay for island
trash hauling.
"If we had not made sure that
the St. John Capital Improvement
Fund stop being used to haul trash
and be used for capital improve-
ments, there would be no funding
source for this," said Barshinger.
"This is an example of how doing
one good thing leads to another
good thing. When it was time to
over-ride the governor's veto of
the Capital Improvement Fund,
the people really came out."
"Residents called their senators
in sufficient numbers that I had
overwhelming support for an over-
ride and now we have the funds to
acquire land for the park," said the
senator at large.
With the bill pending, Coral
Bay Community Council and the
St. John Chapter of the St. John/
St. Thomas Chamber of Com-
merce both came out in favor of
the park last week. The two island


organizations circulated emails
urging residents to call, write and
fax Government House urging the
governor to sing the Omnibus Bill
into law.
"You will remember in April
we helped announce that the own-
ers of the largest piece of land in
Coral Bay wanted to put it in pres-
ervation," according to the CBCC
email. "Here's the next step. We
need your help now to be sure that
the Governor signs the appropria-
tion into law and authorizes it
to really happen."
"The St. John Chapter supports
this very much and wanted to give
you the opportunity to also act on
it if you agree with this Bill," ac-
cording to an email sent by the
island chapter of the local cham-
ber which also included CBCC's
letter.
If approved, the Omnibus Bill
lays out a framework for the park
to be under the direction of a ter-
ritorial park system, which has
not yet been organized, but could
include recreational and cultural
components.
The project is impressive both
for the scope of the land and the
speed with which it went from an
idea to almost a reality.
"It was just a few months ago
that this was a pipe dream," said
Barshinger. "But sometimes a
dream that you focus on, the stars
align, and it goes forward."

St. John Tradewinds
Once again this year, while the
Julius E. Sprauve School won't
host classes on Columbus Day, the
school's field will be packed with
children of all ages.
Kids across the island are al-
ready gearing up for next week's
Second Annual Just Play Day, set
for Monday, October 11, at the
Winston Wells ball field with reg-
istration starting at 8:30 a.m.
The event, which is open to
children between the ages of two
and 18, is the brain child of Dean
Doeling, a senior production art-
ist for Nike who launched the or-
ganization Using Sport for Social
Change (USFSC) in June 2008.
During a trip to St. John, Doe-
ling saw a lack of recreational
resources on the island and was
inspired to help improve the situ-
ation.
"I was walking by the field in
town and I saw seven kids kick-
ing around one flat soccer ball,"
said Doeling. "They were having
a great time, but I imagined what
these kids would do if they had
some equipment to use."
With that vision in mind, Doe-
ling returned to Oregon and began
planting the seeds for USFSC,
which he envisioned would "focus
Virgin Island youth through sports


and fitness, giving them the con-
fidence they need to set personal
goals, achieve their aspirations
and create opportunity for them-
selves, their family and their com-
munity."
The first Just Play Day was
hosted last year on Columbus Day
and drew about 150 children of all
ages, who competed in a variety of
activities. Following on the heels
of that event's success, this year's
Just Play Day is expected to be
even bigger and better, according
to Doeling.
"Last year was a great success,"
said Doeling. "I don't think it
could have been any better. I think
people were looking for the catch
last year."
"But the only catch was getting
kids to get out and play," he said.
"I hope people realize we're stable
and we're going to be here. We're
taking away what didn't work last
year and keeping what did and
adding new activities that I think
will just make the event even bet-
ter."
This year organizers are cap-
ping participation at 200 children,
so parents are encouraged to sign
their kids up early. Children will
be separated into separate age
groups and little ones between two
and four years old must be accom-
panied by an adult.


Activities this year include soc-
cer kick in a goal, soccer relay
through a set of cones, 50 yard
dash, football throw through a
target, tug of war and basketball
throw.
Doeling is introducing a few
new games this year as well, in-
cluding half-ball.
"Half-ball was started back in
the East Coast and it's much like
stickball," said Doeling. "It came
from when the tennis ball they
were using for stick ball broke.
They decided to make up new
rules and created this whole new
game."
"It's quite a technique to be able
to throw this ball accurately," Doe-
ling said. "We'll have information
on how to play the whole game
and how to throw the ball through
a target."
The ever-popular universal
dodgeball will be back and Doe-
ling is working with V.I. Police
Department officials to use their
radar gun for a fastest baseball
pitch contest.
In total there will be 11 games
in which children can compete in a
safe environment.
"While the event is competi-
tive, it's more about just getting
kids out there to do their best in
a non-threatening atmosphere,"

Workers prepare what will be the concrete portion of the accessible trail at Cinnamon
Bay, above. The trial, which will wind around the ruins, will be composed of both wooden
boardwalk and concrete portions.

Friends Getting Started on Cinnamon Bay

Accessible Trail Project; Volunteers Needed


Continued from Front Cover
roughly 550-foot trail winds around the Cinnamon
Bay estate ruins to the beginning of the loop trail in
the rear of the area.
"It's really great that the trail goes all the way to
back of the site here," said Lloyd. "People won't be
just off the street, but you really get a different feel
way in the back of the ruins under the trees.
The project calls for installing a walkway which
will be composed of both concrete and wood. Friends
contracted out the concrete portion of the project,
which was expected to wrap up this week.
Officials are hoping to recruit volunteers to install
the boardwalk portion of the walkway the week of
October 18, according to Friends executive director
Joe Kessler.
"We're looking for volunteers and especially vol-
unteers who are skilled woodworkers, carpenters or
boat builders as well as folks who just want to help
out," said Kessler. "At Francis Bay we got a great
group of people who came out. The quality of the
boardwalk is an indication of the quality of people
who worked on the project."
"We hope to replicate that here at the Cinnamon
Bay trail," Kessler said. "If we get enough volunteers
the project could be finished that week."
The new St. John accessible trail comes as citizens


across the country celebrate the 20th anniversary of
the Americans with Disabilities Act and officials hope
the Cinnamon Bay Ruins trail will be another step to-
ward making St. John a more inclusive destination,
explained Kessler.
"Friends is really interested in helping the VINP
become more accessible for all individuals," said
the Friends of VINP executive director. "Not a lot
of handicapped people come to St. John because of
their mobility problems and the limited areas they can
visit."
The Francis Bay walkway was the first major proj-
ect to address that issue and the Cinnamon Bay trail
is another step in the right direction, according to
Lloyd.
"During the conference five years ago we talked
about the number of people with mobility issues who
travel and aren't coming here because there aren't
many accessible areas," said Lloyd. "That market has
only grown."
MSI and Diageo USVI are major sponsors of the
project and Diageo will host a ribbon-cutting trail
opening and reception for the project on Saturday,
November 13.
For more information about the Cinnamon Bay
Accessible Trail or to volunteer for the project, call
Kessler at Friends at 779-4940.

$4M for Parking Structure,

STJ Rescue Lease in Omnibus


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
In addition to authorizing and
appropriating money for a major
park in Coral Bay (see related sto-
ry on Page 4), the Omnibus Autho-
rization Act of 2010 also restored
$4 million for a St. John parking
structure.
Passed by the VI. Senate on
September 22, the bill includes a
provision to restore a $4 million
appropriation first passed almost
five years ago.
Senator at Large Craig
Barshinger originally ushered abill
through the senate which included
the appropriation during his previ-
ous term in office. The funds were
re-appropriated to projects on St.
Thomas, however, during the time
Barshinger was unseated by Car-
men Wesselhoft.
Now, those funds from bond
reserve interest could be re-
stored if Governor John deJongh


signs the Omnibus Bill into law.
The governor had 10 days from
September 23 to take action on the
legislation.
"With the help of my col-
leagues, we restored the $4 mil-
lion for a multi-level parking
structure," said Barshinger. "The
governor never should have been
allowed to take that money, but
now it's back."
St. John Rescue also scored
with the Omnibus Authorization
Act. The bill includes a provision
to allow the volunteer emergency
response organization to lease
government property on Gifft Hill
for $1 a year. The organization can
now get to work on a structure to
house its equipment and vehicles
in a central location for the first
time in its history.
"St. John Rescue performs a
government service that we would
otherwise have to provide," said
Barshinger.

First GBS PTO Meeting Draws Huge Crowd
Irai j I q


St. John Tradewinds News Photo by Jaime Elliott


It actually took three photos to show everyone who attended the first meeting this
year of the Guy Benjamin School Parent Teachers Organization on Wednesday,
September 22. With more than 40 parents in attendance and many of those par-
ents with two or more children at GBS, a majority of the 115 students have a parent
involved in the PTO and more are expected to attend future meetings on the third
Wednesday of each month. Officers elected were: Claudine Daniels, president; Ethel
Meade, vice president; Rachel Sica, secretary, and Thia Muilenberg, treasurer. The
next meeting will feature student performances and a brief talk on family budget tips.

Preparations for the first annual
Love City Relay for Life Ameri-
can Cancer Society fundraiser
continued building momentum last
month with a volunteer recruit-
ment meeting which drew about a
dozen residents.
The September meeting show-
cased Relay for Life commit-
tees and officials hoped to match
volunteers' interests and skills,
explained Celia Kalousek, the
group's Volunteer Committee
chairperson.
"We had the committee chairs
explain a brief summary of what
each committee does and then we
gave the volunteers an opportunity
to sign up for the committee that
interested them," said Kalousek.
"We're trying to match skills and
interests to really get people in-
volved and excited about this."
While there have been annual
Relay for Life fundraisers on both
St. Thomas and St. Croix over the
past few years, next year's event
will be the first ever on St. John.
"This will be first time that St.
John will host its own Relay for
Life" said Kalousek. "All the
money that is raised here will stay
here."
Funds raised at the event for
the St. Thomas/St. John unit of the
American Cancer Society will help
the group provide education and
resource materials about cancer
and financial assistance for cancer
patients' travel expenses.
"The funds will help the Ameri-
can Cancer Society financially
assist cancer patients with off-
island travel for treatment and the
purchase of medication," said the
group's volunteer chairperson.
"The American Cancer Society
will cover the cost of the barge for
cancer patients going to the Char-
lotte Kimelman Cancer Center on
St. Thomas."
Love City's first ever Relay for
Life is tentatively scheduled for
Saturday, February 19, at the Win-
ston Wells ball field. Well ahead
of that date, officials are hoping to
recruit a dedicated team of volun-
teers who will come out and ensure
the event's success this year and in
future years, explained Kalousek.


"I don't know one
person who has not
been touched by
cancer in some way.
We really need the
whole community to
make this work and
to make it grow year
after year."
Celia Kalousek,
Volunteer Committee
Chairperson


"We're not just recruiting for
this one event," she said. "This is
the first annual Relay for Life and
we want to build on this effort. We
want to keep this growing and ex-
panding."
While the St. John Relay for
Life team has drawn a group of
dedicated volunteers, it still lacks
an event chairperson and event co-
chairperson, Kalousek added.
"We have all of the other com-
mittees covered, but we do still


need an event chair and co-chair,"
she said. "It's a big commitment,
but it's a worthwhile commitment.
Relay for Life is the American
Cancer Society's signature event
to support the fight against can-
cer."
"It recognizes the survivors and
the caregivers who are fighting
the disease and remembers those
we've lost,." Kalousek said. "It
gives us a tool to fight back."
With cancer touching the lives
of most people in the community,
the only way to fight the disease
is with a coordinated effort, Ka-
lousek added.
"I don't know one person who
has not be touched by cancer in
some way," she said. "We re-
ally need the whole community
to make this work and to make it
grow year after year."
Volunteers are still needed for
each committee, from luminary
committee to marketing and spon-
sorship. For more information
about how to help the St. John
Relay for Life effort, call the St.
John Community Foundation of-
fice at 693-9410.

Morgan Locke Wins Annual Love City Triathlon; Adam Thill Takes Aquathon


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Triathletes enjoyed beautiful
weather and brand new pavement
on North Shore Road as the St.
John Landsharks hosted the 12th
annual Love City Triathlon and
Aquathon on Sunday morning,
September 26.
After postponing the race in
the wake of Hurricane Earl the
event was originally scheduled for
September 5 organizers saw the
number of participants drop, but
the conditions for those who did
compete were perfect.
"Originally we had a big group
of athletes from St. Croix who
were going to come over and com-
pete," said race director Louise
Wearmouth. "But we had to re-
schedule the race after the hurri-
cane, and they are having their last
race of the season this weekend, so
there was a conflict."
"We couldn't ask for better
weather today, so the people who
did come out for the race are really
enjoying it," Wearmouth said.
A total of 11 males faced off in
the individual triathlon, tackling a
half mile swim and a 14-mile bike
ride followed by a four mile run.
The race kicked off at 7 a.m. at


Maho Bay beach with the 11 tri-
athletes taking to the water first.
The triathletes then biked along
the recently paved North Shore
Road to Cruz Bay and along Cen-
terline Road to the Colombo Yo-
gurt Stand where they turned back
onto North Shore to wrap up the
bike portion of the race at the An-
naberg parking lot.
Triathletes then dumped their
bikes and ran a four mile course
which incorporated the Annaberg
stairs, before crossing the finish
line back at the Annaberg parking
lot.
After one hour, 38 minutes and
28 seconds, 24-year-old Morgan
Locke was the first individual
triathlon competitor to finish the
race. The St. Thomas athlete was
followed by Andrew Thompson,
43, who finished in one hour, 49
minutes and one second. Chris
Ghiorse, 46, was right on his heels,
finishing third in one hour, 49 min-
utes and three seconds.
The triathlon was also open
to relay teams, with one member
swimming, one running and a third
biking. The first relay team to cross
the finish line consisted of Tory
Lane, swimming; Thomas Layer,
biking, and Kevin Chipman, run-


ning. The winning team finished
the race in a total time of one hour,
38 minutes and 57 seconds.
The second place relay team
consisted of Lani Roberts, swim-
ming; Austin Payne, biking, and
Galen Stamford, running. The sec-
ond place relay team finished the
course in one hour, 52 minutes and
56 seconds.
The third place relay team,
which finished in one hour, 58
minutes and 56 seconds, consisted
of Eric Bauman, swimming; Pret-
low Majette, biking, and Margaret
Majette, running.
The Land Sharks also offered
a shortened course for athletes to
compete in what they called an
"Aquathon," consisting of a half-
mile swim followed by a 3.4 mile
run.
Adam Thill, 44, won the aqua-
thon, crossing the finish line after
42 minutes and six seconds. Dave
Sapio, 40, came in second in the
swim and run event, finishing in
43 minutes and 44 seconds. Jason
Siska, 25, took third place in the
aquathon, finishing in a time of 45
minutes and four seconds.
Twenty-four-year-old Sarah
Swan was the first female aqua-
thon finisher, wrapping up the race

Carl Howard Retires from CZM

After More Than 30 Years
By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Friends, coworkers and many contractors gathered at Fred's on
Tuesday afternoon, September 28, to wish Carl Howard a happy
retirement.
The Coastal Zone Management Environmental Manager spent
31 and a half years with the Department of Planning and Natural
Resources and watched as the department grew into the strong en-
vironmental advocate it is today.
"I'm proud of the way that the people have learned to respect
the environment," said Howard.
While Howard had no immediate plans for travel, he was cer-
tainly clear on his next item of business.
"I'm going to relax for a little while," he said.
David Rosa, who was brought on board in May to learn the
ropes from Howard, has taken over reigns as the island's CZM
environmental manager.

Kathleen "KAO" Joseph, left, and Nelia Delgado, right, will be the new owners of Baked
In the Sun when it reopens in November. Kim Edwards, center, will stay with the team for
another year.


After 10 Years at The Marketplace,


Bakery Moving to Old Ronnie's Location


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
After a decade of serving up
scrumptious sandwiches, home-
made bagels and freshly baked
cookies on the third floor of The
Marketplace, Baked in the Sun is
moving to new digs next month.
The bakery, owned by Kim Ed-
wards for the past 10 years, will
move to the old Ronnie's Bakery
location, next to Kilroy's Laun-
dry. Edwards expects to close her
doors in The Marketplace around
October 15. When the new Baked
in the Sun reopens around Novem-
ber 1, it will be in a new location
and under new ownership.
After helming the counterforthe
past few months, Kathleen Joseph,
known to everyone as "KAO," is
partnering with sandwich making


queen Nelia Delgado, to take over
ownership of the bakery from Ed-
wards, who will remain part of the
team for another year.
The biggest task the trio face in
relocating is disassembling the gi-
ant oven which was shipped to St.
John on 13 pallets and took three
days to put together.
Customers can expect the same
great food from Baked in the Sun,
and maybe even a bit more. When
the bakery reopens in November,
Edwards, Joseph and Delgado will
unveil its new logo designed by
their own employee Jenn Dasher.
In addition to the new logo,
Baked in the Sun will also offer
espresso drinks, smoothies and
pre-made sandwiches when it re-
opens, according to Edwards.
"We're going to start with the


same concept and then we'll tweak
things a bit," she said. "We're go-
ing to have 'grab and go' sand-
wiches, which will be the size of
our regular sandwiches, but a dol-
lar cheaper. It will be really fast
for people to just grab a pre-made
sandwich and get out the door."
"We're also going to have a
whole station that KAO will run
with smoothies and espresso drinks
and the pre-made sandwiches,"
Edwards said.
While changing locations could
present unforeseen difficulties,
Edwards is determined to be oper-
ating in time to offer her popular
Thanksgiving dinners and pies.
"I don't care if I have to bake
them in my own oven at home,
we're going to have Thanksgiving
dinners and pies," she said.


(I check all that apply)
I just bought my perfect fantasy villa on St. John. (I love it here)
I am sure I can rent it and make it pay for itself. (I really love it here)
I figure it can't be all THAT hard to do. (why are there so many bars here?)

people whose names we don't
even know, whose efforts en-
sured his survival.

With unending,

Over the past year we've been closely following
John's health concerns that culminated in his passing
on September 19.
Now we're concerned about the many people who
benefited from John's wonderful life including his
widow, Barbara, and his nephews John and Jason, as
well as his great upstate New York friends who he so
freely shared with us.
John excelled in many areas most with Barbara's
support and encouragement. For example, he carried
a picture of a St. John basket he made in Mr. Prince's
basket-making classes on Hawksnest Beach.
He also proudly displayed in his home a mahogany
stool with a hand woven cane seat and turned legs he
made under the guidance of master turner and joiner,
Avelino Samuel. He mounted and framed slipper lob-
ster shells he found in his daily long distance Choco-
late Hole swims.
John was always ready to help out whether it was
a mechanical home problem, building coconut bird-
feeders, and precision-drilled hummingbird feeders.
He knew the island and its ruins, serving as bush cut-
ter and companion to Historian Stephen Edwards as
he discovered and uncovered the plantations of St.
John.
In later years he willingly shared his knowledge
and workman's skills with me as President of the St.
John Historical Society when we reopened and re-


56 After reading the VI Daily News' Wednesday, Sep-
tember 22, 2010 article, "Port Authority audit slams
agency's finance," I became enraged and disgusted,
yet utterly surprised that someone else felt the same
as I do the VI Port Authority operates in a vacuum
that sucks from the people of these Virgin Islands.
The US Inspector General's audit report highlight-
ed the fact that "long-standing deficiencies have led
to an operation so inefficient that transparency cannot
exist and have resulted in lost Virgin Islands Govern-
Sment revenue."
These are the words of the Inspector General ac-
cording to the newspaper. We learn from the audit
that VIPA had not issued 1099s, federally and locally
required IRS forms, to many of its contractors over
the past 10 years, costing the VI Government an esti-
mated $12.6 million in tax revenues.
They have been charged with circumventing their
riders own procurement process and procedures and inad-
equately keeping records and files. Contracts worth
millions of dollars could not be found and accounted
for. What adds salt to this insult is that this isn't the
first time the Inspector General has performed this
audit. The same audit was performed in 2005 and
the results were the same. According to the Inspector
General, things have not changed.
SThis is a crying shame! We should all be in out-
rage about this blatant abuse and disregard for pub-
lic property and funds. Virgin Islanders, you need to
stand with me and call for the immediate termination
of every single Director, the Executive Director, and


traced some of Steve's trails.
John was also very active in the Virgin Islands
Audubon Society where he regaled us with tales of
hummingbirds nesting inside his garage and the elu-
sive and enigmatic Yellow-bellied Sapsucker.
His greatest skill was seen in his dealings with
other people. He had the ability to make those he met
feel important and welcome. He seemed to excel at
drawing people into groups and making them feel at
ease. Both he and Barbara manned the booth at Trunk
Bay where visitors learned all about St. John from the
experts.
Nancy Edwards recalled John and Barbara's reac-
tion to her plight when Hurricane Lenny struck un-
expectedly on November 19, 1999 (late in the season
and from the wrong direction). Nancy was tending
to her grandson, Stephen, while his parents Kiki and
Alan Graham vacationed. John and Barbara showed
up and stayed for the duration.
Eric Lambert remembered that John had pho-
tographed him and his backpacked son when they
came to build his kitchen. The photograph was one of
John's favorites. John proudly showed off his kitchen
to all visitors with special attention to Eric's carpentry
and David Knight's exotic purple heart wood.
We hope and pray that Barbara will continue to join
us, her extended St. John family for some 30 years.
Chuck Pishko


the Director of Administration and Finance of the VI
Port Authority.
Imagine, the Executive Director stated that while
the Authority is guilty of not keeping organized re-
cords of contracts, they did not fail to follow the
proper procedure. Yet, many of the documents given
could not substantiate this claim nor refute the audi-
tor's assessment.
Internal controls are a huge part of any organiza-
tion and an area of great audit concern. It is their re-
sponsibility to make certain that all laws, rules, and
regulations are followed and adhered to. They are to
keep public documents safe and secure and in proper
order. They have failed the people of these islands by
disregarding the rules and mismanaging our funds.
This is the same VIPA that, although several av-
enues in federal funds are available to them, insists
on taxing citizens and borrowing funds as a means
to generate revenue or enhance their facilities for the
public. My belief has always been that the VI Port
Authority is poorly managed and the Inspector Gen-
eral, in their 2005 and this year's audit, agrees with
me; they are inefficient and lack transparency.
The people of the Virgin Islands should not put up
with this downright and insulting incompetence. This
is costing us in every way. It is high time that we rise
up and call on our governor and senators to do the
right thing and put qualified people in the right posi-
tions to clean up this mess. Those Port Authority of-
ficials need to be fired!

thanks to a generous donation by Verace St.
John.
The owners of Verace, located in Wharf-
side Village, have also donated canvas tote
bags for the event, in keeping with this
year's push to make Just Play Day green,


explained Doeling.
"The push this year is going green so we
have on-island 200 printed reusable water
bottles we're going to give to the kids," he
said. "St. John Ice is providing the water and
we'll have refill stations and also I'm bring-
ing down tons of powdered Gatorade. So
we'll have water and Gatorade available for
the kids throughout the whole day."
Also new this year, Mathayom Private
Chefs will be catering the event and will be
serving up pasta with a variety of sauces for
all participants.
DJ Percy will be spinning music all day
long, and King Fidel will share his Calypso
stylings. Love City Pan Dragons and Love


City Leapers are also slated to entertain the
crowd.
Emcee extraordinaire Brenda Wallace
will moderate the event again this year and
VI. Movement for Change founder Reginald
Cyntje will be the special guest speaker.
"Reginald is a trombonist, educator and
activist from St. Thomas who founded the
VI. Movement for Change," said Doeling.
"He has a very positive message for youth.
It's all about staying out of trouble and fo-
cusing parents to step up and show the kids
we mean what we say."
"It's a very inspiring message and I think
it's great timing that this event is happen-
ing and he graciously agreed to be our guest


speaker," Doeling said.
In addition to hosting the Just Play Day
events, USFSC also supports the V.I. De-
partment of Housing, Parks and Recreation
as well as various sports groups on St. John.
USFSC recently donated new baseball bats
to HPR for their traveling team, six boxes
of footballs, basketballs and soccer balls
slated for all St. John schools and has also
supported the Men's Flag Football League
as well as the annual Ruby Rutnik Memorial
Softball Tournament.
Don't miss the fun at the Winston Wells
ball field on October 11. Registration for
participants and volunteers is open now at
