By Jaime Elliott St. John Tradewinds A Pennsylvania couples St. John vacation turned tragic on Sunday, January 13, when the husband never returned to Leinster Bay after snorkeling near Water lemon Cay in V.I. National Park. the body of Steve Rock, 60, of Enola, Pennsylvania in shallow water on the east side of Leinster point about two hours after he was reported missing. A VINP Dispatcher overheard a missing person report called in to the U.S. Coast Guards Sector San Juan over marine radio around 1:38 p.m, explained VINP Acting Superintendent Mike Anderson. Our dispatcher overheard a call to the Coast Guard on the marine channel and there was a report of a missing person at Waterlemon Cay in Leinster Bay, said Anderson. It was reported that a 60-yearold white male wearing black swimming trunks and snorkel gear was snorkeling with his wife when she became tired and swam back to shore without him while he continued to snorkel, said the VINP Acting Superintendent. The wife lost sight of her hushim even with the use of her binoculars, Anderson explained. She called for help and some boaters made the call to the Coast Guard that we overheard, he said. We dispatched a ranger around 1:50 p.m. The VINP ranger was dispatched in a vehicle out to Lein ster Bay, located at the far east end of North Shore Road. The VINP Ranger requested St. John Rescue assistance, explained Anderson. We dispatched a ranger in a vehicle and the ranger requested St. John Rescue, said Anderson. They responded in their boat and the Coast Guard was preparing a helicopter if necessary. Rocks body was recovered found him in shallow water around 3:33 p.m., according to Anderson. The body was recovered by St. John Rescue who found him on the east side of Leinster point in shallow water in the narrows, Anderson said. The rangers were assisted by boaters with dinghies and the paramedics were there. They attempted resuscitation on board the St. John Rescue boat. They found him around 3:33 p.m. and he was pronounced dead at 5:05 p.m.. The cause of death was unknown last week and will be determined by an autopsy, Anderson added. While high surf closed Trunk Bay beach on Monday, January 14, the seas were not that rough on Sunday, according to Anderson, who didnt believe that surf conditions were to blame for the VINPs dont think there was a high swell then, said Anderson. I think that he was snorkeling alone and there was no one that was watching him or able to come to his aid. Snorkeling and swimming can be more exhausting than one imag ines and its always safe to stay with someone while in the water, Anderson explained. Swimming and snorkeling can be taxing activities and youre in a new environment, he said. You have to always snorkel with someone even if there are other people out there. They might not be paying attention to you. You need to have a snorkel buddy who is able to come to your assistance or call for help. Anderson praised the work of St. John Rescue is a great noncommunity support and we cer tainly enjoy working with them, said the VINP Acting Superinten dent. Bystanders both onshore and on vessels in the area were a big help as well, Anderson added. As usual boaters in the area were of great assistance, as well as people on shore, to try to locate Mr. Rock, he said. Last year, three deaths occurred in VINP, at Solomon Beach, Lein ster Bay and Honeymoon Beach.

By Jaime Elliott St. John Tradewinds Get ready to travel across the globe with the original musical production of One World, One Heart, at the Westin Resort and Villas on Saturday night, February 16. The event is a fundraiser for the islands lone arts school, St. John School of the Arts, but also promises to be an evening of unparalleled entertainment. professional Broadway actors John Tartaglia, Laura Barnao, Rhonda Miller, Michael Shawn Lewis and Donna Drake will teach choreography, voice and more to fourth graders at Julius E. Sprauve School, Guy Benjamin School and Gifft Hill School. The actors, who pay for their own travel expenses and donate all of their time, begin to arrive on island at the end of this month. They will spend three weeks training fourth graders at all three island schools during class hours and then work with St. John School of the Arts students after school as well. While each of the Broadway Comes to St. John productions has been fantastic, this year, the audience can expect to be transported across the world, explained SJSA director Kim Wild. We are taking a ride on St. John Air and were going all over the world, said Wild. Well be visiting Russia, France, Egypt, Africa, Hawaii, the Far East and Brazil. Wild and Lee Stanciauskas of St. John Printing have been having a blast designing this years show book, Wild added. This theme opens so many creative avenues, weve just been having so much fun making the program, said Wild. I dont want to give too much away, but I can tell you that the program is going to be your boarding ticket. And costumes and great dancing and singing in store. The night is sure to deliver topnotch performances from all of the students, but the program is actually about more than just hitting a high note, explained SJSA board of directors president Jim Furneaux. Its certainly outstanding that coming down here for our kids, said Furneaux. Its all about one thing empowering our children through the arts. Kids get so much out of this experience. From self-esteem to cooperation, the students experience valuable life lessons while learning the steps and songs in the production. There is so much evidence about what kids gain from arts education, said Furneaux. And thing to be cut too. Filling that gap is SJSA, which offers a full slate of classes for all ages. The school also hosts concerts for the public and as well as a summer program for students and events throughout the year. The February 16 show will help ensure that SJSA can continue its important work. The school is selling 150 angel tickets for $200 each. Angel tickets include a seat in the premier 6 p.m. show, dining at the Westins beach front restaurant and dancing to live band Paradise People. This year its a bit differ ent than what weve done in the past, said Furneaux. We thank the restaurants for their cooperatwo years, but this year the Westin has stepped up to host the entire group. There will also be an 8 p.m. show on Saturday, February 16, which is open to the public. Seats attendees are encouraged to arrive early. While there is no entrance fee for the 8 p.m. show, donations would be appreciated, explained Furneaux. This is a show for the public and wed love for everyone to attend, he said. Any donations would be appreciated since the money goes to forwarding the work of the school and empower ing the children of St. John through arts education. exciting trip on February 16.

Moyer recently moved to St. John from Texas, where she has been inventing items since her college days. Recently, however, she has been inspired by larger problems. Corporate greed and our national debt is a really big problem and I wanted to create a solution, said Moyer. Her plan entails selling versatile wraps which can be worn as a top, a skirt, a dress and adorned with vintage jewelry and donating 100 percent of the gross proceeds to paying off the national debt. Moyer is still working out shipping issues, but hopes to get her project of ground soon. For more information email Moyer at amyjmoyer@yahoo.com. By Penny Nail Real Estate Editor St. John Tradewinds Ca Ching of Chu Associates, a subsidiary of the company, Chattanooga-Chu, headquartered in Pennsylvania Station, New York, announced the completion of all permitting and reviews involved in building a state-of-the-art deepwater container port in Coral Harbor. Mr. Ching said that by using well-placed private personal incentives the company was able to quickly complete all the paperwork needed. Especially since we had ready cash, there was no waiting for the checks to clear, he said. It met our needs also. So it was a win-win proposition. As with other developers, the company will taxes. The port will meet a need for transshipping containers to various islands in the Caribbean. These are vitally needed for Chinese goods going to the thousands of gift shops located on every island. Most Caribbean gift shops and stores feature goods exclusively from my country, Ching said. Coral Harbors central location and lack of development were crucial in selecting the site. Lu Chong, primary architect and engineer who has worked with Ca Ching on many projects, said that they were forming the Virgin Islands company, Ching, Chong, Cheech and Chair. We looked at St. Thomas, but there were too many cruise ships, said Mr Chong. The old HOVENSA site was an environmental disaster. Coral Harbor was just right. Of course there must be much dredging, but because there is such a strong infrastructure of roads and utilities, there will be little we will have to do ashore. A major road will be constructed from Brown Bay which has long been the landing spot of choice for many of my countrymen, said Mr. Chong. Since the paperwork has been completed and local contractors will be used, Mr. Ching said We hope the residents will not be too inconvenienced by the noise, dirt and road closures of blasting, said Mr. Ching. Heard in the Street Joe Keester, or Joey Blue-Eyes as the New York Mob knows him, is also hiding out in Coral Bay with the members of Pussy Riot. Keester, vincing blonde afro and an innocent face, came to St. John in 2001 posing as Director of Fiends of the VINP.

8 St. John Tradewinds, January 21-27, 2013 St. John Tradewinds By Mike Jones, GHS English T eacher Was it fun? Fun is not the word I would use to describe our minimester visit to Ridge to Reef Farm in St. Croix. Overwhelming is more accurate. The trip provided teachable moments, expert tutelage from Chef Mathayom and culminated in eight tasty appetizers for the Slow Down and Smile event. Our mission was to create an appetizer using local ingredients from the farm, but the experience provided much more than that. I and can now say I visited all three of the Virgin Islands. Our hosts on the farm guided us to spices, leaves and many other healthy, edible food sources. Have you heard of moringa or better known as the miracle tree? Every part of it is edible as well as useful for healing the body. Can you identify the tree that closes up only when a hurricane is coming? How about the lipstick plant? In addition to the traditional rows of spinach, kale and purple tomatoes, there was katut growing right off the deck and tumeric was harvested right behind the kitchen. Food was harvested and served with meals literally from farm to table. GHS students prepared the food while garnering culinary skills from Chef Mathayom Vacharat. Students washed, sliced, peeled, grated, and chopped without incident under the chefs guidance. They cleaned dishes and scraped peelings into the compost bins according to the farm expectations. Somewhere in the three days I experience in the area of public speaking. Each student would also have to address an adult audience before serving the appetizer. What can take high school students 18 weeks to develop, this middle school gang received in a few hours right before bed. I was skeptical at this point, but we still toughed out red leather, yellow leather and unique New York enough times to raise expectations. ed back to St. John and into the kitchen at Ms. Judys house. Chef created eight stations and in doing so carved out responsibility, lead ership and pride. Few experiences in my 24 years of teaching compare to the amal gamation I observed as students completed their entrees. Our GHS students rose to the occasion by putting aside their apprehensions long enough to present and answer questions about their dishes. I am proud to be a part of a fulenough adulation upon our group of students Caleb, Ty, Grace, Jada, Fire, Kade, Chenija and Nekhori and our accompanying adults Sar ah, Chef, Cindy, Peter and Courtney as well as the gracious folks of Ridge to Reef Farm. By Caleb Jones, EARTH Student There were plenty of neat things to see on the farm. I mean we learned a lot more on the farm that was similar to some of the things we learned in E.A.R.T.H. I will never be able to forget such an experience. We got to catch some chickens and feed and pet the baby goats. It was fun to hang out with the interns from ISU, and Ms. Cindy. We also got to have a mini speech class from Mr. Mike. The coolest thing of all was when I got to cut open my coconut and drink my water, and when chef Matt taught us how to cook and be safe in the kitchen like a professional. The sad part was leaving and not having some good food that chef Matt helped us make.EAR TH Journal One Trip, Two Perspectives

St. John needs to be included in this count because accurate data is needed in order to determine the size and scope of homelessness in the community. There is a grave misconception that the streets of St. John are paved with gold, but everyone knows that the majority of island residents are living paycheck to paycheck and some are not even able to make that happen. Proof is needed that St. John does in fact need the funding, programs and services that are out there to help individuals in need.

The evening will feature new work by ceramic artist Gail Van de Bogurt and paint ings by Ayn Riehle and Lucy Portlock. A long-time St. John resident, Portlock is no stranger to the tropical beauty of the island. After leading snorkel trips out of Caneel Bay Resort for more than two dethe abundant sea life. Yet for this new show, Portlock kept her scenes above the waves, she explained. I usually do underwater paintings, said the watercolorist. But this time I decided to stay on top of the waves. I have more scenery like palm trees and water scenes, rather than my underwater paintings. Its still mainly water and beach scenes, but topside, she said. Portlock has been painting since the mid1990s and still enjoys learning new tech niques, she explained. Ive been drawing and painting all my life but I really got going on watercolors when I went to visit my mother in the mid90s, said Portlock. I took a class with her and its funny because I had always thought there were all these rules involved. When I told the instructor about all the things you have to do, he said You can do whatever you want. I thought if no one can tell me I did the wrong thing, thats pretty cool, said the artist. So I started painting. All these years later, Portlock is having even more fun when she picks up the brush. I love it because you can do so much with watercolors, said Portlock. There are so many effects you can get by pushing the water around. Im still learning; its a tough medium. But its a lot of fun, she said. I start painting and all of sudden hours have gone by. If you do something you like, you get in the zone and that is what happens to me when I paint. Portlock has never embraced other medi ums for a simple reason, she explained. Oh, Im far too messy for anything else, in the air and drop them or leap around and suddenly bump into the dog. I need something that can be cleaned up as easily as possible. ration in her surroundings. I am inspired by everything around me, she said. I have a great view and I have taken a millions snorkels so I have all kinds of pictures in my head. Ill thumb through then go from there.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Letters To St. John TradewindsLast Monday was Inauguration Day for the 30th Legislature and it appears that the electorate liked the ideas presented by The Democratic Team for Progress. Democratic Platform: Education, children to learn to read in grades 1-3 and read to learn 4-12, Public Safety, fund alternative programs for youth at risk, Health and Human Services, increase health care training and address the homeless in the community, Youth and Recreation, support youth athletics and devise programs to provide diversions for youth at risk of involvement in crime, Energy, analyze policies that limit business and homeowners ability to generate and sell power, reform the Public Services Commission so that it is effective in protecting the welfare of the citizens and businesses in the community, Economic support the development of central government complexes, stop government employees from abusing the use of government vehicles and equipment, Election Reform, allow voters to decide how to correct the cur rent system for electing community leaders. There is a lot here and a lot more that was not included. If any of the issues in the Platform are of par ticular interest to you, stay in contact with the senators and other leaders of the community. Let them know paign pledges to the citizens of the community, The next two years can be a community changing period in our efforts to make Paradise all that it can be. We are a very diverse community of different islands, different heritages and different ideas but we all want the best for our selves and the future generations of this community. The world is a rapidly changing place and we are having negative impacts all over the world. We can spend a lot more of our energy helping each other beWe are very lucky in that we are being given a lot of funding from the US Government and other than spending the money wisely we do not have to give much in return. We are free to use the money that Uncle Sam gives us and our own tax money for the good of the community with very little interference. We must begin to be much more diligent in using no longer afford to allow our government agencies to function in a manner that has a negative impact on the businesses in the community. We must take a serious look at the way each government department functions. Our government is doing business in the Virgin Islands that is caused by price we can no longer afford. It is much easier to do business in the VI without proper licenses and without paying taxes than it is to conform to the regulations. The problem lies in the government it is not caused by citizens and businesses desire to cheat. The Virgin Islands is totally dependent on the US Government and tourism for income and that is unlikely to change in the near future. With the world economy in a recession/depression, our income has been reduced and we have made up for it by borrowing on our future. We need to begin to make up for it by reducing our spending, not continued borrowing. The only way that we can do that is to become more The part that the Senators and the Governor and other leaders in the community have to play is to get serious about developing a functioning government. ness in the Virgin Islands and this can only be done by training the government work force to provide the service that they are paid to provide. From commissioners, to department heads to staff, all levels have to understand that the better their department functions, the better off the community will be, today, tomorrow and in the future. Again I suggest that all of us take a look at what the Democrats have promised us and encourage them and help them help us. Whatever issues concern you let them know, they Greg MillerDemocrats Again

St. John Tradewinds, January 21-27, 2013 15 Memorial Service Letters To St. John TradewindsT o the Dept. of Environmental Health, Im alarmed by your plan to spray our towns dur ing the evening hours with Permanone 30-30. For many reasons I ask you please to cancel this plan. How dangerous this toxin must be if youve warned citizens with compromised immune systems to stay indoors with windows closed! In a community where most of us live and work in open air, please consider the danger to public health, for example, to the hundreds of visitors and locals, At the height of our tourist season, consider the impact on people working in or walking through town, or dining in open restaurants with no protection and probably no warning. Further, this pesticide will not target the denguebearing mosquitoes, which live mainly indoors and are active only during the day. Instead, it will affect only the nuisance mosquitoes active after dark and will then go on indiscriminately to kill whatever benPlease look at the name of this product and think about what lasting damage it will make permanent in our fragile eco-system. I ask the Department of Health to abandon its plan to poison St. John and its people Sincerely, Paula Myles Your January 14-20, 2013 article on Dengue Fever was very one-sided. You should have balanced your discussion with information on how bad Dengue Fever is. Use interviews with the victims of this dread disease. Many people I know here have had it in the past. Or just describe the symptoms. According to an old newspaper article the hemor rhagic version is 50 percent fatal if untreated. How about talking to Andi Vacharat who works at Carefree Getaways? She was hospitalized with it in December. She had to have two platelet transfers. She had the bleeding under the skin, fever, vomiting and pain, etc. The good news is you cant get hemorrhagic denyou get it, the symptoms may be high fever 104-105 degrees F, joint ache, muscle ache. Im not sure which version is called break-bone fever. They call it that because of the pain. Dont promote a reassessment of the usual public health procedures, like larvicides and fogging when there is an outbreak. Dr Gary Ray, former professor at UVI, said in last weeks article that experts should be consulted. Who does he think came up with these procedures? My granddaughters are scheduled to visit February 12. Should I tell them not to come because were still talking about what to do? Other articles have suggested that these procedures have been used here in the past and apparently worked to stop the spread of the disease.

St. John Tradewinds John Andersons initial description of the defenses at Klein Caneel Bay was heavily edited by ScribNight of the Silent Drums. The map with the article shows the relative positions of Durloos original homestead and the existing roads. The following is taken from Andersons original notes. Durloos house was one of the least pretentious of the eighteen upper-class houses on the island that were still lived-in by their owners. It was adequate to his and his familys needs since they had a better house on the St. Thomas plantage and customarily came up to the country, St Jan, only for vacations and to escape the sultry, sultry heat of the hurricane season in the interior of St. Thomas. Dur loo, on St. Jan, preferred to put his money into the income-producing land and sugar works. Constructed like nearly all of the better homes on St. Jan, the house at Klein Caneel Bay was of wood on a high stone foundation that continued up to chair-rail height on the superstructure. Unlike most, it was roofed with Dutch upper-class houses, were of burnt coral cement laid over close-set bulletwood poles and covered with plain Dutch tiles. Underneath the were storerooms and some closetlike sleeping-rooms for houseslaves. The wooden superstructure was stone steps; the individual steps, as in nearly all such house on St. Jan, were tiny, shallow for mincing ladies with constricting skirts. Men unaccompanied by ladies customarily took them three and four at a time, for comfort; but still they were not comfortable for a man, 16 St. John Tradewinds, January 21-27, 2013 Bahai Community of St. John For Devotions and Study Circles,call 714-1641 7:30 p.m. Fridays; Study Circles 9 a.m. Sundays 776-6316, 776-6254 Bethany Moravian Church 11 a.m., Sunday School 776-6291 Calvary Baptist Church 13 ABC Coral Bay, 776-6304 Sunday School 10 a.m., Sunday evening 6 p.m., Thursday 7 p.m. Christian Ministry Cinnamon Bay Beach Inter-Denominational, Sunday 8:30 a.m. Christian Science Society 10:45 a.m. SundayMarketplace Wednesday Testimonials 7:45 p.m. on last Wed. of Month The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Sun. 9 a.m., on St. Thomas 776-2379 Sun., 5 p.m., STJ, Lumberyard Cruz Bay Baptist Church Sunday 11 a.m., 6 p.m. 776-6315 Emmaus Moravian Church Coral Bay, Sun. 9 a.m. 776-6713 Jehovahs Witness 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays; 7 p.m. Saturdays (Espaol), 10 a.m. Sundays, 340-715-053 Missionary Baptist Church 9:30 a.m. Sunday Services, 10:45 Worship, Tuesday 7 p.m. Bible Study 693-8884 Nazareth Lutheran Church Sunday 9 a.m., Sunday School 8 a.m. 776-6731 Our Lady of Mount Carmel Saturdays 6 p.m.; Sundays 7:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. Tuesdays and Fridays at 7 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7 a.m. 776-6339 St. John Methodist Church Sunday 10 a.m, 693-8830 Seventh Day Adventist Saturdays, 779-4477 St. John Pentecostal Church Sunday 11:05 a.m., 6:30 p.m. Tuesdays Prayer 7:30 p.m., Thursdays Bible Study 7:30 p.m. 779-1230 St. Ursulas Episcopal Church Sunday Church Service, 9 a.m. 777-6306 Unitarian Universalist Fellowship 9:45 a.m. Sunday, 776-6332 Word of Faith Church Word of Faith International Christian Center, Sundays 7:30 a.m. Gifft Hill School 774-8617 Church DirectoryContinued on Page 18 The Planters Defense Against the Slave Revolution 1who had room only for his toes, with no place for his heels unless he climbed the stairs sideways.

On this terrace were now collected piles of grapeshot and chain, scrounged from every plantation within miles, with kegs of powder handy to each pile.

Thats not so anymore. From generating your own power from roof-mounted solar panels, to small-scale wind generation, to power-generating soccer balls and sneakers, to portable backpack solar systems, we can now all gener ate our own power. This is not futuristic stuff its here right now! Take the power-generating sneaker. The concept and design are actually simple, and you can even make your own. You get a small generator from so you can turn the generator axle when you step down, and channel that energy to a cell phones (or other devices) charger cord. You can use this when you are jogging or walking or just when youre sitting down and feel like tapping your foot. These types of shoes are already on the mar ket and will become more widely available in the next couple of years. How about the power-gener ating soccer ball? The Soccket uses a patent-pending gyroscopic technology that generates up to 24 volts. The balls battery has an operating range of 2.7 to 3.6 volts and has special circuitry that limits the maximum and minimum charge so that the battery itself lasts longer. The manufacturer of these balls is working to distribute them all over the world to communities that lack reliable access to electricity. Kids love playing with them, and energy power source. A solar-powered backpack can charge your laptop, cell phone and more. The Voltaic Converter Solar Backpack quickly charges all your handheld electronics with four watts of power generated by the sunshine. Its padded laptop sleeve and sizable front pocket help you keep your gadgets secure and easily reachable. And, if you just want to charge your cell phone, mini solar char gers are available.

Since we are associated with the National Registry we will be upgrading all our First Responders to Emergency Medical Responders and EMT Basics to EMT. Health T ip Stroke can be fatal. Some symptoms for Stroke are: severe headache on one side of the head, slurred speech, one side of the body feeling weak, facial drooping, arm drift. Also females may feel nauseated, experience pain on one side of their body, develop hiccups and have a sudden urge to take a nap. These symptoms will come on suddenly. Not everyone who has hiccups or feels tired is experiencing a stroke. However, if you are experiencing a number of these symptoms you should get checked out by a physician. With a stroke time is of the essence. Anyone experiencing a full blown stroke (Cerebral Vascular Accident) caused by a blockage of an artery to the brain has approximately three to four hours to receive treatment.

This study, which was conducted by nationally recognized leaders in geospatial infrastructure development, was completed last year. Complefull functionality of the emergency 911 system, and expanded postal delivery to 911 homes. Lt. Governor Francis is eager for street addressing to become a reality in the territory. The lack of a standardized addressing system affects more than the ability of our residents and tourists to navigate our streets with ease, he said. It is a public safety issue that we are committed to improve. Francis is hopeful that the pilot projects will boost the communitys participation in the Street Addressing Initiative. Address assignment cannot take place on unnamed roads, said Francis. Street addressing is a community initiative and community participation is critical to our goal of achieving addressing throughout our community.
