Checking for diabetes
No CASES
FOUND
DURING
RECENT
TEST
A total of 93
people, both
adults and chil-
dren, participat-
ed in a diabetes
testing program
organized by the
Lions Club of
Saint Barth6le-
my last Sunday
in conjunction
with the Diabet-
ics Association
of Guadeloupe.
The testing was
held at the fire
station in Saint
Jean. While no
one tested
proved to have
the disease, that
is not to say that
diabetes does
not exist in
Saint Bath. In
fact there are
many cases on
the island,
where the dis-
ease is more
prevalent than
in metropolitan
France.




Eu.....
THE METAL COMPACTOR CATCHES FIRE

Scrap metal not accepted
at the dump


The fire started in the metal compactor near the
incinerator in Public. Photo courtesy of alacase.com


he cause has not yet
been determined for
the fire that broke
out at about 9:00am on Fri-
day, November 25. The
fire started in the metal
compactor near the inciner-
ator in Public, as the driver
was in the process of com-
pacting a car body. He had
just enough time to jump
to safety before the fire
caught in the cabin of the
machine and in nearby
vegetation. No one was
injured but since fuel stor-
age (ED and Shell) is near-
by and there is flammable
products close by, the fire-
men used all their means to
put out the fire as quickly
as possible. The fire was
extinguished by ll:00am.
Perhaps it was a premoni-
tion, but several days earli-
er the trash collection serv-
ice decided not to take any
more branches and garden
clippings, since they felt


they could no longer burn
the large amounts generat-
ed by the exceptional level
of rain on the island of late.
In fact, if the tons of mate-
rial burned in the first two-
thirds of the year equaled
that of 2004, the thirds part
of 2005, which is not yet
over, has already counted
1100 tons, compared to
854 tons in the same peri-
od in 2004. That is an
increase of a little over 250
tons. Since Monday, vege-
tation can once again be
delivered to the incinerator,
but the deposit of scrap
metal is still suspended,
and it is still not clear when
this will again be possible.
The island's technical serv-
ices office is seeking an
acceptable solution: to
repair the compactor if
possible, or purchase a
new or used machine.
They are considering the
options.

PEOPLE WATCH

Eric Omores,

Nikki Beach co-funder


he first Nikki Beach opened on
December 17, 1999 on Ocean
Drive in Miami Beach. On
September 24, 2005, it was in the
heart of the palm trees of Marrakech
that the newest incarnation of this
unique lifestyle concept was born.
Located in the most hip and most chic
spots on the planet, Nikki Beach has
multiplied over the years since its
debut in Miami, opening in St. Tropez,
then St. Barth in 2002, and recently in
Marbella as well. Originally a series of
beach restaurants, Nikki Beach has
also diversified, opening hotels and
spas in Mexico and Brazil, a marina in
Hollywood, Florida, and a new restau-
rant in the center of New York City-
Nikki Midtown- located at the corner
of Third Avenue and 50th Street. The
masterminds of this success story are
two men: the American Jack Penrod,
and Eric Omores who spends every


winter in Saint Barth. Eric, who is now
44-years old, was born in Senegal
where his mother was a nurse and his
father developed African humanitarian
programs. The family moved to
France when Eric was nine. After
graduating from high school he
enrolled at ENSATT, the French
National School for Theatre Arts and
Technology- intending to become a
sound engineer. With his diploma in
his pocket he worked in the theatre
until he started another "important"
school: Club Med Hired as a lighting
technician during what he considered
were "the best years of the Club," he
was sent to the Caribbean. Three years
and six seasons (summers and winters)
later, Eric headed to the USA, having
met many American clients through
Club Med. His first stop was the Big
Apple, then he took a road trip that
culminated with six months in San
Francisco and 5
years in LA. : as a
DJ, and event plan-
: ner, he discovered
I Itthe American way
K a., of life and was
inspired to go into
business for him-
self. By the end of
the 1980s he moved
to Santo Domingo
and opened his first
bar in Sosua, just a


few miles from Puerto Plata at a
time when the development of the
Dominican Republic was still hypo-
thetical. Once the bar was open, Eric
headed back to the United States and
settled in Miami where the winds
blew with enough force to fuel his
creative energy.
In eight years, he created four restau-
rant-bars in Miami Beach before going
into business with Jack Penrod and
opening the first Nikki Beach. The
Nikki "style" was immediately appar-
ent: wood and white, lounge music
and parties on the sand, the comfort of
beds on the beach, and a warm wel-
come by the staff was seductive to
even the biggest stars. There are those
who are true Nikki Beach aficionados
who travel around the world as not to
miss the openings of new locations
and attend special events.
In Saint Barth, in addition to Nikki
Beach, Eric Omor6s also opened a
night club. Located in Gustavia,
Casa Nikki continues the tradition:
white is obligatory, exclusivity, a
festive atmosphere, and star sight-
ings at the height of the season. Per-
fect Nikki style !

SAINT-BARTH ENJOYS
THE BEST CHAMPAGNE
"If Guadeloupe and Martinique
hold the record as the largest
consumers of champagne in
terms of the number of bottles
per resident, Saint Barth is a
special case as far as the French
West Indies are concerned,"
explains Pascal Bony. Not only
is the level of consumption
equally high, especially at the
end of the year, the quality of
champagne sold on the island
equals that of the United States,
first largest consumers of good
vintages and high-quality
champagne.

roup Bernard Amault LVMH
(Louis Vuitton Moet Hen-
nessy) debuted Dom
Pdrignon Vintage 1998 in Saint Barth,
following successful launches of the
champagne in New York and Paris
last month. The visual aspects of the
marketing campaign were handled by
fashion designer and photographer
Karl Lagerfeld. Aged for seven years
in a champagne cellar under the
attentive eye of master vintner
Richard Geoffroy, and his staff, Vin-


tage 1998 was premiered for the first
time in the Caribbean last Saturday at
Casa Nikki during a special evening
organized by D & K Events on behalf
of Segeco, the first exclusive distribu-
tor for the Caribbean. The champagne
will be available for purchase as of
December 16, 2005. In support of the
event, David Marcovitch, president of
Moet Hennessy for Latin America
and the Caribbean basin, flew in from
Sao Paulo in Brazil, accompanied by
Pascal Bony, Caribbean market man-
ager, who is based in Martinique. In
spite of complications that caused
them to miss the launch party- their
flight from Kingston, Jamaica, was
canceled and they had to detour by
way of Miami, Puerto Rico, and Saint
Martin in order to reach Saint
Barth- they were able to meet their
distributor and their clients on the
island. Arriving from Jamaica follow-
ing stops in Mexico and the Turks &
Caicos, Pascal Bony and David Mar-
covitch left Saint Barth last Monday
on their way to Antigua, then Mar-
tinique where they would debut a
ros6 version made by traditional
methods in Argentina and baptized
"Eclipse." The next debut for Dom
P6rignon Vintage 1998 will be held

two schools are among the largest donors in the Northern
Islands (St Barth and St Martin).

Once collected, what happens to our trash?


On an island like
Saint Barthelemy,
the issue of trash is
a major preoccupation.
The eight square miles of
the island cannot be
expanded but the volume
of trash continues to grow
as the size of the popula-
tion and the number of vis-
itors continues to increase.
As a result, more efficient
solutions were needed to
effectively dispose of the
island's trash.
Until the early 1980s, resi-
dents burned their own
trash in their yards. Any-
thing that could not be
burned was taken to a
dump in Saint Jean, to the
islet of Petits Galets, or
thrown directly into the
sea a little further from the
shore. In the early 80s
things began to change
when the municipality
opened its first incinera-
tion plant. In the 1990s, a
second incinerator was
opened to deal with the
large volumes of trash. In
1995, hurricane Luis put
the first one out of busi-
ness, and the island was
back to just incinerator. At
the same time, it became
necessary to separate glass
from household trash.
Large collection boxes for
glass were installed around
the island but lack of a
recycling plant meant that
the glass was simply
ground up and dumped
into the ocean.
Worried about meeting
environmental protection
standards, the municipality
started a recycling service,
encouraging residents to
separate glass and metal,
and built a modern incin-
erator that was put into
service as of September

year.


NON-SEPARATED
TRASH
7,000 to 8,000 tons of
trash are now burned in
the new incinerator every
year. Cardboard, plastic,
branches, household
trash... anything that can
be burned goes into the
incinerator. The energy
generated by the combus-
tion of the burning trash is
transformed into steam
and used by the water
desalination plant in the
place of fuel. As in all
combustion there is some-
thing left over: in this case
it is cinders, roughly 350
tons per year, that are tak-
en away by boat six times
a year and delivered to a
class I dump in the French
department of Mayenne,
where they are buried.
underground. There is also


WHAT HAPPENS
TO RECYCLED TRASH?
Glass to be ground
into sand
Glass, up to 750 tons, is
sent to France in contain-
ers (approximately 40 per
year) to glass recycling
plants in the Bordeaux
region for the manufacture
of new bottles. Soon this
will no longer be true as
glass will be sent directly
to Saint Martin for recy-
cling. It will be ground


into sand that can be used
for construction work.
That should solve the
problem of glass from
windows that cannot be
used to produce bottles
and thus must be separated
from the rest of the glass
that is collected. Once the
crusher is operational in
Saint Martin, glass win-
dows should be able to be
recycled as well.

Metal sent to Venezuela
Metals- from tin cans to
car bodies and iron bars-
are also separated and
stocked near the incinera-
tor in Public. Eventually, it
is taken away by boat
when there is enough to
warrant a pickup. Most of
the metal is sent to
Venezuela to be valued.
The last expedition took
place in October and
allowed for a total elimi-
nation of metal that had
been stockpiled for as long
as five years.

Aluminum and brass
bring high prices
Aluminum and brass are
also separated by hand and
expedited separately, also
by sea container, to
France. These two materi-
als represent 35 to 40 tons
per year, and as they have
intrinsic value, the munici-
pality has no problem
finding buyers.

"If everyone on
the island picked up
just one piece
of trash a day

St. Barth has some of the
most beautiful beaches in
the world. How sad that so
many of them are littered
with plastic bottles and
debris! Here is a simple
solution: Next time you go
to the beach, why not take
a garbage sac along? Pick
up some trash and put it in
the sac. You'll be surprised
how happy you will feel!
Others will see what you're
doing and may join you.
The beach will be more


beautiful because of you.
On your way home, if you
see a plastic bag stuck in a
tree or a beer bottle lying
by the road, why not grab
that too? The children will
learn to respect their island
and you will feel good
about yourself. The tourists
will be happy too. In addi-
tion to having a more love-
ly vacation, they'll be
inspired to come back,
spend money and support
the economy. If everyone
on the island picked up just
one piece of trash a
day...Can you imagine...?"

I Horoscope
ARIES (March 21- April 19): Have
you considered that what's going
down on Monday may have nothing
to do with you? Reflect on the size
and style of another person's shoes.
Saturday and Sunday see you acting
equally ambitious
TAURUS (Apr. 21- may 21): The
world is made up of the same shapes
as always, but ..i 11;1,. has been
colored in with bright markers. Eve-
rything looks snazzier.
GEMINI (May 22-June 21): You
have a lot of energy ii ll.. I... .1
of the week, but it will burn off
quickly. Don't commit to social
plans on Tuesday or Wednesday,
because you will likely end up can-
celing them.
CANCER (June 22-July 22): A field
of corn, perhaps? Your adventures
this week are adventures of the ima-
gination, and this weekend you
might not feel like leaving the house
much at all.
LEO (July 23-Aug 22): Friday is fiery
and passionate. Romance, adven-
ture, stuff like that. Lucky you! This
weekend, rather than hunting for
more fun, figure out who needs your
help and offer it.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 -Sept. 23): Toward
the end of the week, you snap out of
it and show up for a family obliga-
tion. Good for you! You will be
rewarded (with affection and crea-
tive inspiration) this weekend
LIBRA (Sept. 24 -Oct. 23) : Also,


Monday
Clear.
High: 80 F/27 C
Wind ENE
17 mph / 28 km/h
Night: Clear.
Low: 78 F / 26 C
Wind ENE
20 mph / 32 km/h


you're lucky in love right now. When
you express your feelings, people
respond well. Nevertheless, it will be
a weird weekend, and your head will
be in the past.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 Nov. 22): The
larger issues of the day are on your
mind on Friday, and your thought-
fulness leads you into philosophical
terrain. This weekend, a couple of
business matters occupy your mind
and your calendar.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 -Dec. 21):
A 1... ii ,,, II... figures into your day
on Monday, and you undoubtedly
have your adoring fans. But fans do
not make a star happy, and in the
ensuing days, you're trying to figure
out why your life is going in certain
directions.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22.- Jan. 20):
The end of the week is also about
discipline (even things that seem
impossible are possible, so long as
you stick to your guns). This week-
end, plans and projects go in your
favor. Impress the pants off
someone.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 -Feb. 19) :
Spend Friday around friends, and
welcome Saturday and Sunday at
home, in a relaxed position, with a
magazine in your hand.
PISCES (Feb. 20 March 20): Or
at least, h1 1 ilr.. 'i .. n._-II_- 1'...,: out
of you than they deserve. Pay atten-
tion, be aware and give others the
benefit of the doubt at the end of the
week -- but stick up for yourself.
