87th anniversary of the end of WWI

With the tourist season
the Saint Barth Wee-
kly is happy to be back
as well for its third sea-
son. The Weekly is
designed for you, to
help you put your fin-
ger on the pulse of the
local community. Fea-
turing an English
r6sum6 of the top sto-
ries of our French
newspaper "Le Jour-
nal de Saint Barth",
Saint-Barth Weekl is
the only English-lan-
guage newspaper that
comes out every very
friday from November
through the end of
July. Our most exciting
news is that each Fri-
day The Weekly is also
available on line at
Saint-Barth Online
the wonderful web site
that our friends Lau-
rence and Peter
O'Keefe created in
1996. Thanks to them,
you can now download
every edition of the
Saint-Barth Weekly so
that no matter where
you are in the world,

t the same time as
in France, yet
actually a little in
advance, the residents of
Saint Barth had their first
taste of the 2005 Beaujo-
lais Nouveau, which
debuts the third Thursday
of November every year.
But thanks to the differ-
ence in time, the first bot-
tles on the island were
uncorked on Wednesday,
November 16 at 7pm, as
the clock stuck midnight
in France.
The warm
climate this
year has
an excep-
tional vin-
to Inter

who has
pro -
nounced the 2005 wine to
have aromas of "wild
blackberries, huckleberry,
and black currant," as well
as "red berries."
To make a bigger state-
ment in the international
market, the traditional
"Beaujolais Nouveau Has
Arrived" slogan has been
replaced this year "It is
Beaujolais Nouveau
time!"- easier to under-
stand by foreign clients,
especially the Japanese,
who since 2004 are the top
importers of the wine.
Vintner Georges Duboeuf
first introduced Bci.uij 'l.ii'
Nouveau on November
13, 1951. It is a wine from
the Beaujolais region of
France made from Gamay
grapes, and whose sale is
authorized immediately

following its fermentation.
Be.,lui l.lis Nouveau is not
a wine that keeps, and
must be consumed quick-
ly, within a few months
following the production
of 450,000 hectoliters, or
a third of the production
of Bc.i, 1.i

Close to 6000
bottles in Saint Barth

An estimated 6000 1; .ii ie,
of Beaujo-
lais Nou-
veau have
imported to
Barth. The
importer is
the Group
ASB with
3000 bot-
tles of
Georges Duboeuf, "the
inventor of Beaujolais
Nouveau." Les Grands
Vins de France have
imported 11,000 e1 ,iihilt of
Bouchard for the Northern
Islands, of which 1,400
are destined for Saint
Barth. Match supermarket
imports its own wine and
has three kinds of Beaujo-
lais Nouveau representing
a total of 900 bottles on
the shelves. All of the
orders have been delivered
to the island and could be
found as of Wednesday
evening in the markets
and wine merchants. A
short-lived product, most
of the bottles of Beaujo-
lais Nouveau are generally
sold within the first three
weeks after the launch
date each year.

A marathon
to celebrate

On Sunday, November 20,
at 7:30am, the 15th annual
Gustavialoppet, a mara-
thon celebrating French-
Swedish friendship, will
start at the sports stadium
in Saint-Jean. Launched in
1991, reviving a marathon
previously organized on
the island, the Gustavia-
loppet (which means "Race
of Gustavia" in Swedish)
serves as a reminder that
Saint Barth was under
Swedish rule for almost
100 years- from 1784 to
1878, before being retur-
ned to France, its former
ruler. That is why an ave-
rage of 20 runners from
Sweden participate in this
race every year. The 2005
edition, held on Sunday,
November 20, will be no
exception to the rule. Led
by Roger Richter, 23 Swe-
des will take part in the
race.This year, the length
of the race is 10 kilometers.
You are also welcome to
participate in the event. To
do so, you must present a
medical certificate when
you sign up for the race at
the sports service at Town
Hall in Gustavia which will
be open from 8am to 11am
and 3pm to 5pm this Fri-
day, November 18. There is
also a 5 kilometer "walk"
open to all, organized in
conjunction with the Gus-
tavialoppet, that will begin
at 7:35am at the stadium in
Saint-Jean. Inscriptions
will take place on site.


Nils Dufau : A Swede in Saint-Barth
A column about islanders
by Ellen Lampert-Greaux

Though he was
born in Paris in
1970 and has a
French father, Nils Dufau
studied in Sweden and
has a personal perspective
when it comes to the
Swedish history of Saint
Barth. His Swedish moth-
er provided home school-
ing until the time he went
to boarding school in
Sweden at age 16. By
then, Nils spoke fluent
Swedish as well as
French (thanks to Papa)
and English.
"My grandparents were
teachers, so I think my
mother had it in her
blood, and I had a won-
derful childhood," says
Dufau, whose parents
decided they wanted to
leave Paris when Nils was
but five years old. "They
bought a boat and after a
cold winter in Stockholm
harbor, we crossed the
Atlantic and sailed to the
Caribbean. My parents
earned their living by
boat charters," he recalls.
By 1978, the charter busi-
ness brought them to

and I came back to help
my family," he says. "It
was great to return to the
.- place of my childhood."
Once Nils returned, he
decided to stay.
Among his many activi-
ties outside of the motor-
cycle business, he is
involved in the local
Rotary Club (and served
as its president). But
S r more importantly he is
-- very active in the ASBAS
association, a non-profit

Bar't6, la lounge attitude faqon

following a new trend, the Gua-
nahani Resort opened a stylish
lounge on November 1, and it is
the first of its kind on the island.
Enclosed and air-conditioned, with a
unique ambiance and soft lighting,
Bar'To as it is called- offers the
perfect lounge attitude, or "loungi-
tude," preferred by the 25-55 age
range. Former model Alex Dumas, a
well known hostess on the island, will
manage this new lounge at the heart of
the 4-star luxury hotel, as well as the
gourmet restaurant, Bartolom6o,
which is adjacent to Bar'T6, and
whose kitchen has been slightly
remodeled. Far from trying to be as
hip as possible, it was client satisfac-
tion that drove the creation Bar'T6.
"Our clients wanted a bar that was
open at night. This allows them to fin-
ish the evening in a festive lounge
atmosphere without having to drive, or
to simply have another drink after din-
ner," explained Marc Th6z6, director
of the Guanahani. It is the kind of
"before-after-before" place (before
dinner, after dinner, before night club)
that is very popular in France at the
moment, and is open every day from
7pm to lam. Open to guest of the
hotel, of course, but also to other
tourists as well as the local population.
The elements are in place for a perfect
lounge attitude: a personal welcome
by one of six very pretty hostesses, an
elegant decor with a mix of colors and
textures, yet very cozy and with works
by various artists to complete the pic-
ture. Plexiglas pieces by Denis Perol-

laz opens a round of exhibits chosen
from the To-b.art gallery. As far as the
all important element of music is con-
cerned, there is not a false note: DJ
Jacques Dumas, a friend of celebrated
DJs Philippe Corti and 'ipic',ii.c Pom-
pougnac (he is also Alex's husband),
has concocted the musical mix heard
during the course of the evening. In
high season when everyone wants to
party, live music and a DJ will be
added to the scene.
When it comes to the cocktail menu,
all is at perfect pitch here as well:
Franck, the bartender, and one of the
two males on the eight-person satff,

has quite a few recipes in his repertory.
His specialty? The Apple Martini, a
real treat. Another specialty of the
house is vodka. Bar'ti has 28 different
kinds of Vodka on the menu, from the
four corners of the world, including
Grey Goose from France and Tanquer-
ay Sterling from England... and of
course the best of the Russians!
Finally, for those who want a small
snack or ..,'iclii;i sweet, the menu
at Bar'To includes two special plat-
ters, one for a light meal and the other
for dessert, offering a little taste of the
excellent cuisine prepared next door
at Bartolom6o.

arki Felicia, who was married to Cerge, passed away about 10 years ago,
and has just been immortalized, at least in St Barth. Her family called
her "Gangane," a name that signifies
grandmother in Saint Barth, and as of
last week she can be seen on the doors
that separate the Petite Colombe
bakery from Le Bananier restaurant in
Colombier. Actually what you see is a
large-scale painting of Gangane by
local painter Antoine Heckly, who was
commissioned by owner Alain Gr6aux,
great-grandson of the small woman
seen in the hamac. Created on plywood
and attached to the central door panel,
the painting of Gangane is just one
part of a trompe l'keil mural that has
two additional panels. It took Antoine
Heckly a month and a half to complete
this charming acrylic triptych.

would be needed, especially

to take care of medical evac-

of the hospital approved a

budget in the amount of
70,000 euros to be used to
buy new equipment includ-
ing another ultrasound
machine to be used for emer-

nies have recently been given
the right to fly regular flights
in and out of Saint Barth.
Since a hardening of French

regarding charter flights, it
has been impossible for
American companies to oper-
ate in Saint Barth and no
commercial planes flying
under the Stars and Stripes
have landed on the runway in
Saint Jean since January 2,
2005. Today, things are differ-
ent. Since the beginning of

Tradewind Aviation have

for six months and have in
fact started to land charter
flights on the tarmac in St.

While Air America, based in
San Juan, Puerto Rico, flew
an Aztec and a BN2 in and
out of Saint Barth for a few

years, this marks a first for
Tradewind Aviation. Based at
Oxford Airport in Connecti-
cut, this business airline has a
flotilla of eight planes, most
of which are less than five
years old. The company also
flies out of Westchester Coun-
ty Airport (New York) and
Teterboro Airport (New Jer-
sey), and from mid-October
through the end of April, out
of Saint Croix where their
Caribbean fleet includes a

Pilatus 12 and a Cessna
Grand Caravan, both set up as
"executive" planes.
Tradewind Aviation has
signed a contract with WIM-
CO, the American representa-
tive of SiBarth, which now
offers information about char-
ter flights San Juan on its
Web site.
Locally, Brice Cagan and his
company, Saint Barth Ser-
vices, will represent the two
American airlines.

After a fight with his girlfriend, the owner of a small car
that he had bought for her (but was still in his name), deci-
ded to get rid of it. Which is exactly what he did by simply
pushing the car into the harbor with the help of his other
vehicle. The car was fished out of the water the next mor-
ning. Aside from the fact that the car was totally ruined
and towed to the dump the same morning (where it will
join other wrecks), the overall damage caused by this unu-
sual incident was minor. The dock was slightly damaged as
well as the concrete mooring buoy belonging to a boat
owner, who filed a complaint. But the angry lover agreed to
repair all of the damage, and an amicable settlement was
reached after an interview with the police. In the end, no
laws were broken and no charges were pressed.

Accused of capturing an endangered
species, a marine turtle weighing over 140
pounds, GL and IL were called before the
criminal court on September 15, and have
been found guilty as accused. After deliber-
ation, the verdict was announced on
November 3. Their penalty includes a fine
of 5000 euros each. But the strongest sanc-
tion was the seizure of the material used in
the capture of the marine animal: not only
the fishing nets and the boat -a Boston
Whaler- but also the pickup truck used to
transport the turtle. The judge also con-
demned both men to pay civil damages in
the amount of 500 euros to each of the fol-
lowing: Grenat, the association that man-
ages the Marine Park, and the SubProtect
association that protects the underwater
environment. On May 8, 2004, GL and IL
were surprised by two agents from the
Marine Park who found them on the beach
in Toiny, where they had just loaded their
pickup with a marine turtle over three feet
long and weighing more than 140 pounds.
The turtle, which had been imprisoned in a
large bag, was released.

Four sea snail poachers
caught on November 11
Neither wet weather nor a public holiday
stood in the way of four poachers, and did
not affect the agents of the Marine Park
either. On Friday, November 11 at 3:00pm,
the agents caught four people in the act of
poaching sea snails in the bay of Petit Cul
de Sac. Immediately contacted, the police
were soon on the scene and questioning the
four poachers, whose defense was they did
not know it was prohibited to collect sea
snails in the waters of the Marine Park's
protected zones. Considering the size of the
sea snails found in their plastic bags, these
poachers were also unaware that these uni-
valve shellfish must be of a certain mini-
mum size to be collected even outside of the
Marine Park's jurisdiction. In fact, of the
100 sea snails measured, only ten were large
enough to meet the legal minimum size of
four centimeters. The sea snails were put
back into the water and the four poachers
were taken to the police station.

One thanks to a car

rather unusual treatment, but

Poisoned by an anti-bee pulver-
ization, Caroline arrived at Flo-
rence and Eric's house almost
completely prostrate, with para-
lyzed feet. A treatment of vita-
min B seemed to stem the poi-
soning but did not treat the
symptoms. Two months later
things are somewhat better,
even though Caroline still suf-
fers from minor paralyzation of
her feet and has difficulty mov-
ing around. Florence continues
to carry her at meal time, but
the turtle manages to get back
to her "home" by herself.
This "home" in Florence and
Eric's garden is shared with
another "miracle tortoise,"
K.ii!i.ii., who was found in a
terrible state. Run over by a car,
her shell was seriously dam-
aged and some of her flesh had
been crushed. After an initial
antibiotic and anti-maggot
treatment at the vet, she was
given to Florence: "I contacted
an association, The Tortoise
Village of Gonfaron, in the
South of France, where there

are specialists who could offer
me advice. First, we had to
make sure that no maggots had
come back. Then for a month
and a half, we treated the
wound with diluted Betadine.
When we were sure it was
clean, Eric repaired the shell
with several layers of boat
resin, making sure not to touch
the flesh. There was still a small
hole that was eventually closed
with automobile mastic." But
K.i inii.ili was still not walking.
"Gonfaron -i 1.u ;ili that nerves
had been severed but she had
good reflex movement. So I
started physical therapy: first I
attached a sort of stabilizer to
her breastplate to facilitate
movement of her back feet.
Then I encouraged her to walk
by lifting her back end. Using
her front feet, she would take a
step, then two. But it took six
months before she really could
walk. Her walk is more of a
"tumble" but she gets around"
But things were not easy for
Karinette. Separated from other
tortoises, she was depressed,
says Florence: "Afraid of possi-
ble infection, we kept her on
our terrace (that was washed
every day with very hot water).
She would only eat frozen
string beans, she refused every-
thing else. Then one day she
would not eat, or walk. I was
sure she was depressed. So we
brought her some friends, and
within the space of one minute
she started to walk and eat

il11 a new plant installed
In Public to desalinate
ocean water, the
island's capacity to produce
drinkable water will increase
from the current level of 2300 m3
per day to a little more than 3000
m3 per day, once the new plant is
operational in December. That's
the news from Hubert Magras,
the local director of the Ucdem
(Caribbean Union for the Desali-
nation of Seawater, a division of
G6n6rale des Eaux). The new
plant is located in the former
water production plant in Public,
and is expected to produce 800
m3 of water per day, increasing to
seven the number of plants put
into service since the late 1970s
when the island began to desali-

nate the ocean to produce drink-
ing water. This increase in the
production capacity corresponds
to the demand for water which
comes close to 3000 m3 per day
in times of drought or the peak of
the tourist season. Ucdem decid-
ed to add this new plant in the
early part of 2005.
The new plant functions on the
principle of inverse osmosis. A
cutting-edge tc l'.!1i -1 intro-
duced by NASA to provide pure
water for the astronauts, inverse
osmosis is not a new method for
treating brackish water or purify-
ing city water, but it has just
recently been employed to
remove the salt from ocean water.
It is therefore the latest word in
this kind of technology.
