Hurricane Season 2010 Is Over Close To

Predictions of High Activity, Little Landfall


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
A collective sigh of relief was
audible last week as Tuesday, No-
vember 30, marked the official
end to the 2010 Hurricane Season,
which kicked off on June 1.
In total, the season saw 21 de-
pressions, 19 named storms and 12
hurricanes, five of which grew into
major (category 3 or higher) hur-
ricanes. The season echoed many
forecasters' predictions which
called for an active season but with
few storms making landfall.
The National Oceanic and At-
mospheric Administration predict-
ed 14 to 23 named storms, eight to
14 hurricanes and three to seven
major hurricanes, according to
www.srh.noaa.gov.
St. John got a brush of the ac-
tivity from Hurricane Earl, which
passed just north of the island in
early September. It was Tropical
Storms Otto and Tomas, however,
which inundated the island with
rain and severe flooding.
"While the number of cyclones,
hurricanes, and major hurricanes
was enough to put fear into coastal
residents from the Virgin Islands to
the Canadian Maritimes, steering
patterns and other fortunate ocean/
atmosphere interactions, not to
mention dumb luck, kept some of
the potentially devastating storms
at sea, literally and figuratively,"
according to NOAA's website.
This year's hurricane season
was the most active since 2005
and the 19 storms that formed tied

the 1995 and 1887 seasons for the
third highest number of named
storms, according to Wikipedia.
The season's 12 hurricanes also
tied with the 1969 and 1887 hurri-
cane seasons for the second largest
number of hurricanes, according
to the website.
Hurricane Alex, which formed
on June 25, was the first storm of
the season and eventually grew
into a category 2 storm which
struck northeastern Mexico. Af-
ter Hurricane Alex, however, the
season slowed down with no other
storms forming until the end of


August.
"The strength of Alex so early
notwithstanding, the season got
off to the typical 'slow' start; Dan-
ielle, the season's second named
hurricane did not reach status un-
til August 23," according to www.
srh.noaa.gov.
The slo\\" season didn't stay
that way for long though. From
August 23 to October 31, 10 more
cyclones reached hurricane force.
"In the latter part of August and
September, the season became
much more active with the forma-

VIPD Search for Pine Peace Shooting Suspect


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
V.I. Police Department investi-
gators were still searching for the
suspect in a Sunday night, No-
vember 28, shooting in Pine Peace
which left a young man with sev-
eral bullet wounds.


The 21-year-old victim was
injured in his lower left abdomen
and also grazed by a bullet on the
side of his face from his right tem-
ple to his right earlobe after being
shot around 8:50 p.m. on Novem-
ber 28, according to police.
The incident was reported to


the VIPD by officials at Myrah
Keating Smith Community Health
Center, where the victim was treat-
ed before being transferred to R.L.
Schneider Hospital on St. Thomas.
He underwent surgery at the St.
Thomas hospital, but was listed in
stable condition last week, accord-


ing Schneider officials.
The victim told police he was
arguing with a male suspect in the
Pine Peace area when during the
argument, the suspect pointed a
handgun at him and began shoot-
ing, according to VIPD officials.
Police urged anyone with in-


formation about the shooting to
contact Criminal Investigation
Bureau detectives at 714-9801 or
715-5516.
Residents were also urged to
call the anonymous tip line at
Crime Stoppers USVI with any in-
formation at 1-800-222-TIPS.


Body of Missing Kayaker Discovered in Round Bay


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
When St. John resident David Sullivan did
not return from a kayak trip on Friday, Novem-
ber 26, friends and family members feared the
worst.
By Saturday night, November 27, those
fears were realized when officials discovered
Sullivan's body around 5 p.m. in about 20 feet
of water in Round Bay. Sullivan's kayak had
been found earlier that day on Hansen Bay
beach.
Sullivan, 43, lived on the water's edge in
Hansen Bay on the island's East End and of-
ten took his blue kayak out for excursions. He
set off around 10 a.m. on November 26 and
failed to return four hours later when he was
expected back, according to U.S. Coast Guard
spokesperson Ricardo Castrodad.
The Hansen Bay man was reported missing
on November 26 by a family friend who called
USCG officials at 9 p.m., Castrodad added.
USCG deployed rescue crews to search for
Sullivan aboard the 110-foot patrol boat Coast
Guard Cutter Cushing from San Juan, Coast
Guard MH-65 Dolphin helicopter from Air
Station Borinquen, Aguadilla, Coast Guard


Boat Forces St. Thomas 25-foot response
boat, Coast Guard Auxiliary aircraft out of
St. Thomas, and a boat from the VI. National
Park, according to Castrodad.
VINP officials also scoured the East End
shoreline for signs of the lost kayaker. One
VINP ranger showed a photograph of Sullivan
to beach-goers at Haulover Bay on November
26 asking if anyone had seen the missing man.
"We've found the kayak on shore," said the
VINP official. "At this point we're looking at a
body recovery, not a missing person."
V.I. Police Department officials worked
with private divers to retrieve Sullivan's body
on November 27, according to Castrodad.
Sullivan was officially pronounced dead at
the Myrah Keating Smith Community Health
Center that evening, Castrodad added.
Officials had not ruled on Sullivan's cause of
death as of press time last week, but neighbors
and friends said he was an experienced kay-
aker and strong swimmer. He was not wearing
a life jacket, however, when he went missing,
according to Castrodad.
"He died doing what he loved best," said St.
John Administrator Leona Smith, who knew
Sullivan. "He loved the sea."

Film Society Back in Action with Pot Luck

and Raffle and Free Film Dec. 7 at Sputnik


St. John Tradewinds
St. John Film Society's free film series continues
on Tuesday, December 7, with a screening and pot
luck dinner and raffle at Sputnik in Coral Bay, start-
ing at 6 p.m.
The society will screen the documentary "Playing
for Change: Peace Through Music," by Mark John-
son and Jonathan Walls. The 83-minute film is a story
of hope, struggle and perseverance as the Playing for
Change team travels the globe with a single-minded
passion to connect the world through music.
Majestic vistas from South Africa, ancient sites of
the Middle East and the Himalayas are featured with
recordings of more than 100 musicians, mostly filmed
outdoors in parks, plazas and promenades.
"This is the story of an unparalleled international
musical collaboration and its remarkable power of re-
demption," according to SJFS.
Join society members and supporters before the
show at 6 p.m. for the group's second annual pot luck
dinner and raffle. Tickets, $5 each or five for $20, will
be sold at the door and proceeds will help SJFS con-
tinue to offer its free film series.
Call Rea McQeen Roberts to sign up for the pot
luck. Julietta will also be serving up some of her fa-
mous rotis, but only while they last.
Chairs will be provided, although seating will be
limited. SJFS officials recommend participants arrive
early and bring a cushion to put in their seat. Anyone
who arrives late should bring their own beach chair
along.
A portion of the night's proceeds will benefit the
Playing For Change Foundation. SJSF will also share
proceeds from this event with its partners at Sputnik.
"We look forward to another rewarding season of


Tuesday night films with good food and friends at
Sputnik in Coral Bay," said Roberts.
SJFS will continue its Free Film Series, sponsored
in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, with
an excellent lineup this winter, Roberts added.

HOPE Inc. Opens New St. John Office


and Commemorates World AIDS Day


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Surrounded by colleagues,
friends and well-wishers, Ivy Mo-
ses officially opened HOPE Inc.'s
new St. John satellite office on
Wednesday, December 1, on the
third floor of The Marketplace.
It was a fitting day for the non-
profit to open its first Love City
office, since December 1 also
marked World AIDS Day.
Moses founded Healing Others
in a Positive Environment (HOPE)
Inc. a decade ago. Her determina-
tion and commitment to providing
sorely needed services to AIDS
and HIV patients has helped HOPE
Inc. to become a leading agency in
the fight against the preventable
disease.
HOPE Inc.'s headquarters are
in downtown Charlotte Amalie
and the group partners with vari-
ous agencies to offer free AIDS
and HIV testing, safe sex kits and
counselling across the St. Thomas/
St. John District.
Before opening a St. John of-
fice, the group offered its services
twice a week at the Myrah Keating
Smith Community Health Center.
With its new office, which will be
open Monday through Friday from
9 a.m. to 4 p.m., residents can have
access to HOPE's services on a
regular basis.
HOPE will also be offering
diabetes, heart disease and obesity
monitoring and prevention servic-
es at its new office, Moses added.
Pastor Carlyle Sampson offered
a prayer and dedication as Moses


cut a red ribbon on HOPE's door,
officially opening the Love City
satellite office.
Residents enjoyed a tour of the
group's three room office, which
includes a reception area, direc-
tor's area as well as a private test-
ing area. Following the ribbon
cutting ceremony, Moses offered a
few words about the organization
she founded in 2000 and the ongo-
ing struggle to contain the growing
AIDS rate in the territory.
"It is a good match to be here
opening HOPE Inc.'s St. John of-
fice on World AIDS Day," said
Moses. "One percent of the USVI
population has been diagnosed
with HIV or AIDS. In 2006, the
Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention ranked the Virgin Is-
lands in the top five HIV/AIDS
cases per capital in the United
States."
"That places the VI in the high-
incidence category," Moses said.
"There are more than 900 cases of
HIV/AIDS in the territory and this
year alone HOPE Inc. saw seven
new AIDS/HIV cases five in St.
Thomas and two on St. John."
Lifestyle choices and cultural
norms have played a part in the
high incidence of AIDS and HIV
in the territory, Moses added.
"Youth in the Virgin Islands are
more sexually active and change
partners more often than their
peers in other parts of the states,"
she said. "We have the highest rate
of teen pregnancy for girls be-
tween 18 and 19 years old. Multi-
ple sex partners, injecting drug use


and unprotected sex are the main
transmission points of AIDS and
HIV in the USVI."
A lack of complete health edu-
cation and the economic reality of
the territory are also factors in the
HIV and AIDS rate in the Virgin
Islands.
"The lack of comprehensive re-
production education, health infor-
mation and services coupled with
the large portion of the population
living in poverty all contribute to
the high incidence of AIDS and
HIV," said Moses.
Gender specific marketing cam-
paigns and frequent radio and tele-
vision advertisements are some
ways to fight the preventable dis-
ease locally, Moses added.
"Routine screenings are needed
and necessary," Moses said. No\\
there are free services on St. John
at The Marketplace five days a
week."
Senator at Large Craig
Barshinger and Senator-elect Ja-
nette Millin Young offered words
of encouragement and promises of
commitment to Moses and HOPE
Inc. Health care officials from the
Frederiksted Health Clinic, Morris
F. deCastro Clinic, East End Medi-
cal Center and YWCA were also
in attendance.
Later on Wednesday night, Mo-
ses and HOPE Inc. officials hosted
a candle light vigil outside their
new office in commemoration of
World AIDS Day.
For more information about
HOPE Inc.'s services, call the new
office at 714-1540.

plying for space through the UVI Cooperative Extension Service office
on St. Thomas. Cost for space is $50 per day. For details, contact Carlos

After Successful Surgery and Treatment, Brian Holt Returns Home

Cancer survivor returns to St. John, helping plan first St. John Relay for Life


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
When Brian Holt awoke one
day in April with severe pain in his
abdomen, he had no idea the next
six months would send him in a
whirlwind of doctors, oncologists,
chemo therapy and surgery.
While his ordeal is one of com-
munity and personal support and
determination, Holt is now trying
to make sure the help he received
from the American Cancer Society
is available to others who must
grapple with the reality of cancer.
Holt is part of the committee
which is organizing the first ever
St. John Relay for Life American
Cancer Society fundraiser, set for
Saturday, February 19, at the Win-
ston Wells ball field. By sharing
his story, Holt hoped to send home
the message that cancer can affect
anyone out there.
When the St. John hospital-
ity manager went to see a doctor
about his pain in April, he was im-
mediately sent to St. Thomas for
an ultrasound.
"I was on the ferry that after-
noon to St. Thomas," said Holt.
"They told me I had to go see a


urologist on St. Croix immedi-
ately. I was on a flight to St. Croix
that Thursday and he admitted me
to the hospital that night."
"He told me, 'you have cancer
until proven otherwise, but you've
got it,'" Holt said. "I told my girl-
friend of six months that I had can-
cer and the next morning I had an
orchiectomy."
A biopsy eventually revealed
that Holt did indeed have testicular
cancer. Three CT scans later, Holt
was also told that the cancer had
spread to his abdomen.
"Right after I got back from St.
Croix, I went for three CT scans
- pelvis, abdomen and chest -
to see if it had spread," he said. "I
had to send the disc to my urolo-
gist on St. Croix and that is when
we found out it had spread to my
abdomen."
In early June, Holt flew to New
York to meet with surgeons at Me-
morial Sloane Kittering, where he
was planning to have the surgery
to remove the cancer from his ab-
domen.
"I met with the surgeon and on-
cologist and they spelled out the
plan," said Holt. "I had Stage 2B

chemo treatment in St. Thomas.


Testicular Cancer, which means it
had metastasized from its original
location to my abdomen."
Holt returned to St. John and
underwent four cycles of chemo-
therapy over a three month period
at Charlotte Kimmelman Cancer
Center on St. Thomas.
"I would go for five hours a day,


five days a week and then take off
for two weeks," said Holt about his
chemo treatments. "They wanted
me to stay in New York, but I
wanted to come back to St. John. I
was still working at the time."
As Holt managed through his
chemo treatments, a bout of neu-
tropenia landed him in the hospital


for several days.
"At one point, my white blood
cell counts got so low I was in
isolation in the hospital for three
days," he said. "But the facil-
ity on St. Thomas was great. My
girlfriend would take me over on
the 8:30 a.m. barge and we'd try
to back on the 3:30 or 4:30 p.m.
boat."
The local chapter of the Ameri-
can Cancer Society covered the
cost of Holt's transportation to St.
Thomas for treatments, he added.
"I couldn't take the ferry be-
cause I was in pain and I couldn't
be around that many people with
my white blood cell levels so low,"
said Holt. "The American Cancer
Society reimbursed me for the
travelling expenses, which was a
really big help."
After working out a payment
plan with the Indiana University
Simon Cancer Center, Holt trav-
eled to Indianapolis for a surgery
to remove the cancer from his ab-
domen on September 29.
"I couldn't believe how amaz-
ing everyone was," said Holt.
"The people in the waiting room,

Sun Dog Cafe Serves Up Exciting


Expanded Dinner Options and More


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Anyone who hasn't heard yet,
don't miss Wednesday nights at
the Sun Dog Cafe, when the is-
land's best musicians, guitarists
and singers gather to jam to a
packed courtyard.
It might be Sun Dog's tasty new
menu options, icy cold drinks and
frozen treats or just the fantastic
ambience of the open air courtyard
in Mongoose Junction, but the res-
taurant has found the perfect recipe
for success.
Since opening its doors in 1992,
the Sun Dog has transformed from
a frozen yogurt shop to a favorite
and affordable island eatery for
lunch and dinner.
Sun Dog owners Michael and
Barbie Barry purchased the res-
taurant and the Gecko Gazebo bar
in 1997 and worked tirelessly over
the years to make the eatery a din-
ing destination, and their work has
paid off.
"We've worked steadily through
the years to improve the Sun Dog
concept to where it is now one of
the most popular lunch choices on


St. John for both locals and our is-
land guests," said Michael Barry.
"We've been selected by the 'New
York Times' as a Travel and Lei-
sure Pick for St. John and voted
best lunch numerous times by the
St. Thomas 'Daily News.'"
Barry is not new to the hospi-
tality business, he worked as a
marketing director and partner for
an 11-unit restaurant company in
central New York before moving
to Love City with his wife and son
Jackson.
"I kind of did the mid-life crisis
early enough to do the next thing,
and was fortunate enough to dis-
cover life on St. John," he said.
"Wanting to raise a family here
was the motivation for getting
back into the restaurant business
after selling out of the company in
New York."
As he reentered the hospital-
ity world again, Barry brought his
prior experience and a few lessons
he learned along the way. Now
instead of overseeing 550 employ-
ees, Barry is happy to run a 15
member team.
"With a staff of about 15 here,


Barbie and I can be the kind of em-
ployers that we want to be," said
the Sun Dog owner. "We have a
real family atmosphere on staff,
and it shows in our everyday per-
formance."
One secret to Sun Dog's success
is its commitment to offering good
value for its customers, Barry ex-
plained.
"The cafe has always been
about value," he said. "Because
the physical size of the kitchen is
so small, we have a lighter over-
head expense than most, and this
helps us to keep the prices down,
but the quality high. 'The most ex-
pensive thing in a restaurant is an
empty chair' is our philosophy."
"To help our locals even more,
we offer a frequency card for
lunch, which is equivalent to an 11
percent discount, a Two for One
Happy Hour from 4:20 to 5:30
p.m. weekdays and a Hungry Hour
from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. featuring
half price appetizers," said Barry.
With tantalizing options like
grilled shrimp skewers basted
with a sweet and spicy Thai chili

Local surfers catch a wave at Hart Bay, above, but the community is about more than
just swells.


St. John Surfing Community


Unites Over More Than Swells


By Kent Wessinger
St. John Tradewinds
The St. John surfing commu-
nity is geographically scattered
across the island, however, at the
first sign of a swell the community
unites without hesitation.
A typical southern swell fills
Reef Bay with surfers of all ages.
An .rc\\ .oiIc" southern swell,
one generated from a hurricane or
significant storm, sends the com-
munity into the surf spots they call
"secret."
Alan Eichenauer, a lifetime
member of the St. John surfing
community, called the waves from
Hurricane Tomas "some of the
best waves of my life, including
Costa Rica."
Of course the location of those
waves remained a secret.
Since the island's North Shore
is barricaded by outlying cays and
islands, a northern swell sends
surfers to their boats in search of
the break. Places like Johnson's
Reef, located just north of Peter
Bay, which has victimized many
boards and surfers with its shallow
water and sharp coral heads over
the years, is a favorite to experi-
enced surfers.
The true north swell pilgrimage,
however, is to Tortola. St. John
surfers pour into Apple Bay, Cane


Garden Bay, and Josiah's Bay on
Tortola for the breaks.
Graeme McCallum, a promi-
nent member of the BVI surfing
community, termed it "The St.
John Invasion." But a welcome in-
vasion at that.
"The BVI surfing community
loves the St. John surfers," said
McCallum. "They are respectful
of the sport and people."
A closer look at the St. John
surfing community reveals more
than surfboards, sunscreen and
lingo. An atmosphere of unselfish-
ness radiates from the community
no matter the size of the swell.
The grandest of all examples
is "Surfer Gary," a long-bearded
Coral Bay resident who is a legend
for his unselfishness who has free-
ly taught many St. John residents
to surf over the years.
People in the community tell
many stories about "Surfer Gary"
showing up to surf and never tak-
ing his board out of his bag due to
a request to "learn to surf."
Brion Morrisette, also a sea-
soned St. John surfer, always car-
ries a youthful Tommy Gibney to
the swells and is passionate about
teaching the younger generations
to surf.
Alan and Adam Eichenauer,
who grew up surfing St. John


waves, have young surfers all over
the island telling stories about sit-
ting on their boards beyond the
break next to the brothers and ask-
ing them for tips. At the end of the
day, the Eichenauers have been
seen congratulating the kids for a
job well done, then buying them a
soda in town.
Similar stories abound about
John Nogueira, Amos Rutnik,
Colin Hilliard (who conducts the
kids' surfing camp at Reef Bay
each summer), Nicole and Mar-
gie Barbier and Galen Stamford,
who many consider the island's
best surfer. Stories of unselfish-
ness are common within the local
surfing community, both today and
stretching back decades.
St. John surfing community
members come from many differ-
ent socioeconomic backgrounds,
but all are united in their unself-
ish desire to freely give away the
secrets to their sacred sport to all
those who are willing to learn.
They recognize the natural
beauty of the sport and want to
expose the next generations to the
expression of pure beauty instead
of other alternatives the world has
to offer.
The St. John surfing community
is united in sport, relationships and
unselfishness.

Zuber Takes Turkey Day 5K; Mary Vargo Is Top Woman Finisher


St. John Tradewinds
Well, it seems as though the prospect of a big holiday
meal is a good incentive to exercise.
It was another great turnout for the Turkey Day 5K as
80 people, adults and children alike, showed up bright and
early for a little pre-feast workout. It was a beautiful morn-
ing as participants started off on their scenic run.
The children, not to be outdone by their parents, turned in
some very impressive performances on their own abbrevi-
ated course. Many of the older children ran alongside their


parents, showing them a thing or two, forcing many a parent
to keep up!
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, participants kindly and
generously donated non-perishable food items which were
passed on to Catholic Charities for their good use.
Top finishers were rewarded with tasty Thanksgiving
themed treats, such as pies, breads, cranberry sauce, apple-
sauce, and cookies. Indeed, not one cookie made it back to
the car as they were consumed right on the spot!
A random drawing of race numbers also gave all partici-


pants a chance to take home some of delicacies as well. A
complete list of results and photos can be viewed at www.
stjohnlandsharks.com.
The St. John Landsharks would like to thank the National
Park Service and St. John Rescue for their presence during
the event, as well as the volunteers and all the participants
who helped make the event such a success.
We hope to see many of you again for the last event of the
year, the Reindeer Ramble on December 19. Happy Holi-
days Everyone!

Letters To St. John Tradewinds


Condolences to Family
and Friends of Community Icons

I was saddened to read of the recent losses of two of St. John's
beloved community icons this past week, Ron Walker and Sis.'
Frank.
My sincere condolences to their families, friends and to all in their
extended St. John family.
I am sure they will be deeply missed by many, as they were loved
by many. The numerous contributions they both made to our little
island will be their legacies.

Greetings to all. It was a sad moment when I
opened my email only to learn of my dear Sister,
Mentor, Mother, and friend, Sis Frank's passing.
Her kind and caring words and deeds throughout
the years have touched the very fabric of many folks
whose lives crossed on the same path with her in this
journey called life. Unlike so many others who mi-
grated here and now call my home theirs, she dove
into the culture and tried to understand the people she
met here.
Over the years she worked her fingers to the bone
ensuring the children of St. John had positive things


Thanksgiving 2010 marked the passing of a true
sister, Ruth H. "Sis" Frank.
Sis exemplified all that sisterhood is about. She
was nurturing, respectful of everyone, added humor,
compassion and inspiration to all who were blessed
to know her.
Her never-ending devotion to the arts and the cul-
ture of our islands have few parallels.
On Sis's 80thbirthday, I confessed to her that many
people have called me "Sis", instead of "Cid" over
the past 30 years here on St. John. I never corrected
anyone, because I always felt so complimented that I

the residents of St. John should have access to it. I
phoned Myrah Keating Smith Community Health
Center yesterday to follow up on the results of my
dengue test sent to the CDC in Puerto Rico.
I was told by a male lab tech that my results can
"take up to a month and aren't important for my treat-
ment and recovery!"
I was appalled, for it is very important, especially


to do in their spare time. She lifted our spirits and
gave us a home with a purpose in the St. John Steel
Unlimited Orchestra.
Her other contributions are so many but this one
rings home for me on a personal level for it was there
that I experienced my first brush with the discipline of
music. Thanks so much Sis!
As long as I live... you too will also live on in this
heart of mine. Rest in eternal peace Sis!

Sis Frank is truly the essence of what classy sister-
hood is about. She is now placed in the stars above
St. John, shining down, inspiring the youth to pursue
their talents and shine with her.
Thanks, dear Sis, for being a comet in our lives,
and making a difference in the quality of all our
lives.

for your inspiration,

Another Point About Pigs
In reply to the long letter about feral pigs in your Novem-

Please note the little poster pig, with its erect ears, just "E'HUSEK1'
like those ears the anonymous writer claims are not seen on
domestic pigs. The writer is correct that our local pigs should
be kept safely at home, not wandering on the roads, but in-
correct, I believe, in assuming they are feral wild boars and
sows.

Sun Dog Serves Up Exciting Expanded Dinner Options


Continued from Page 9
sauce served with avocado creme fraiche and black
bean puree, Jamaican jerk chicken quesadillas with
pico di gallo, sour cream and guacamole and a half-
pound certified Angus flatiron steak served with fresh
chimmichurri sauce and grilled smashed potatoes,
the menu alone draws fans and repeat diners. But the
chefs don't stop there, Barry added.
"We have a very small kitchen and that keep ev-
erything super fresh," he said. "We have to be very
careful about the number of ingredients we have and
how they work together to make what the 'New York
Times' called 'an impressive menu for a kitchen the
size of a Volkswagon beetle.'"
"Everyone in the kitchen is a total foodie and our
chefs take a lot of pride in the daily specials that they
come up with," said Barry.
While Barry helms the staff and restaurant, his wife
Barbie oversees the bar, that is when she's not tied up
serving as the athletic director at Gifft Hill School.
"While Barbie's main focus is Gifft Hill School,
where she serves as Athletic Director, she manages to
work closely with the bar staff," said Barry. "When
you come to the Gecko Gazebo Bar, it is just about
impossible to not meet someone or engage in a con-
versation. We don't have televisions, or other distrac-
tions that take away from people getting together,
which is what it's all about."
The Barrys continue to dedicate much effort and


time to GHS. Both Barbie and Michael Barry were
founding board members of the Coral Bay School,
which eventually became the current GHS. Today,
Michael Barry continues to serve on the board at
GHS because he feels it is "making a difference for
the future of the children of St. John by preparing its
leadership," he said.
As the Barrys look ahead toward their 14th season,
they're excited to offer an expanded wine list and a
fully-perfected dinner menu (which they only started
serving two years ago).
"We started serving dinner in a quiet way two years
ago," said Barry. "It happened the way I do most
things by evolution, not revolution. This year rep-
resents our first year of being able to present a high
quality, high value menu for dinner all of the en-
trees are under $20."
"We're in the process of expanding our wine selec-
tions to complement the new foods, again with an eye
on quality and value," Barry said. "As we enter into
our 14th year, we're maybe even more excited than
ever about what we've been able to accomplish and
the value that we are able to give to our guests."
Stop by the Sun Dog for lunch daily between 11
a.m. and 4:30 p.m. and dinner weekdays from 5:30
to 9 p.m. And don't miss the Wednesday Night Jam
which kicks off at 7:30 p.m., but be sure arrive early
in order to get a seat in the courtyard. For more infor-
mation call the restaurant at 693-8340.

St. John Tradewinds, December 6-12, 2010 17


Cancer survivor Brian Holt returns to St. John, helping plan first St. John Relay for Life


Continued from Page 8
the nurses, the doctors, the guy
who wheeled me out everyone
was amazing."
Once again the American Can-
cer Society helped out by covering
the cost of Holt and his girlfriend's
round-trip plane tickets.
Following successful surgery,
Holt was released from the hospital
less than 72 hours later. He spent a
month recuperating in North Caro-
lina and flew back to St. John on
Halloween. While he still faces CT
scans, blood work and X-ray ex-


ams every few months, Holt went
from diagnosis to remission in a
half a year.
"It was a total of six months,"
he said. "I was diagnosed on April
28 and I had my surgery on Sep-
tember 29. It was a hell of a six
months."
Since his return, Holt has been
helping to organize the first ever
St. John Relay for Life, helping to
recruit teams and plan a knock out
survivor's dinner. His motivation
is simple to make sure others in
his position are able to get the kind


of help he did from the American
Cancer Society.
"Going through this, you kind
of start realizing this is bigger than
just you," said Holt. "Anything
you can do to help the fight against
cancer is important. I lost my
mother to cancer when I was 12."
"I fought it for me and for her,"
Holt said. "I continue to fight and


try to keep giving back."
All of the funds raised at the
St. John Relay for Life are for the
local American Cancer Society
chapter, and the funds remain in
the St. Thomas/St. John District,
Holt added.
"One of the big things about the
Relay for Life is that all the money
is staying right here," he said. "I


know everyone has been touched
by cancer in one way or another. If
you haven't been touched recently,
you will be soon."
Organizers of the first St. John
Relay for Life are still looking
for sponsors and teams. For more
information about the event or to
donate, call event chair Mary Bar-
tolucci at 642-1629.


Hurricane Season 2010 Is Over


Continued from Page 2
tion of 11 named storms in about
40 days, six of which were Cape
Verde-type storms," according to
Wikipedia. "Four of those Cape
Verde storms (Danielle, Earl, Igor
and Julia) each reached Category
4 intensity and a fifth in the Carib-
bean (Karl) also became a major
hurricane. Danielle and Earl were
back-to-back major hurricanes,
followed by several weak tropical
storms, followed by another series
of three consecutive major hurri-
canes."
"From August 21 to Septem-
ber 26, there was not a single full
day without at least one tropical
cyclone active for a total of 36
days, starting with the formation
of Tropical Depression Six (which
became Hurricane Danielle) and
ending with the dissipation of
Tropical Depression Lisa, the lon-
gest period since the 2004 Atlantic
hurricane season, also tying 2005,"
according to the website. "In the
month of September, eight named
storms formed, which is the high-
est ever recorded, tying with the
2002 and 2007 seasons."
There were also three occasions
when three tropical cyclones were
active at the same time. The first


set was Danielle, Earl and Fiona,
which all existed on August 30 and
31. Then on September 1 and 2,
Earl, Fiona and Gaston were swirl-
ing over the Atlantic Ocean.
"The third and most notable
was when Igor, Julia, and Karl
were active September 14 through
September 18," according to Wiki-
pedia. "During a brief period, on
September 15, Igor and Julia were
simultaneously Category 4 hurri-
canes, a very rare occurrence and
the first such since 1926. Both
were still hurricanes when Karl
was upgraded to a hurricane on
September 16, the first time since
the 1998 season that there were
at least three simultaneous hurri-
canes in the North Atlantic."
The final storm of the season
was Hurricane Tomas, which dis-
sipated on November 7. The stron-
gest storm of the 2010 season was
Hurricane Igor, which packed
155 mile per hour winds when it
formed on September 8, according
to Wikipedia.
In total the season cost $11.299
billion in damages, according to
the website, which also estimated
259 direct and 23 indirect fatalities
were caused by the 2010 Atlantic
Hurricane Season.
