Christian Laporte: He Did It!


WELCOME!

The Saint Barth
Weekly is happy to
be back for its third
season. The Weekly
is designed for you,
to help you put your
finger on the pulse of
the local community.
Featuring an English
r6sum6 of the top
stories of our French
newspaper
"Le Journal de Saint
Barth", as well as
original articles in
English, the Saint-
Barth Weekly is the
only completely
English-language
newspaper on the
island. It comes out
every Friday from
November through
the end of July. Our
most exciting news is
that each Friday, The
Weekly is also
available on line at
Saint-Barth Online
(www.st-barths.com),
the wonderful web
site that our friends
Laurence 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, you
can stay in contact
with the island.


Saint Barth rolled out the
red carpet last week to wel-
come home Christian "Kiki"
Laporte, the first person
from the Northern Islands of
the French West Indies to
have completed "The
Dakar" without being dis-
qualified. Olivier Lambert
and Laporte successfully
arrived in Dakar at the end
of the 15th day of the race.

The teammates concluded
their itinerary on Sunday,
January 15, along the edge
of Pink Lake near Dakar.
Not counted in the overall
classification, this 15th and
final leg of the race is some-
what of a relief for all the
competitors, but especially
those amateurs still left in
the race (over 50% had

already abandoned). A reli-
able car, a steady speed, and
most importantly no major
incidents, and the team from
Saint Barth had everything
going for it, as well as a little
luck, to help finish this rally
in the African desert. After
racing for 15 days and cov-
ering almost 10,000 kilome-
ters of sand and dust, their
final position isn't really
important, nor their time
compared to the winners: but
the Team Saint Barth fin-
ished 65th out of the 68 cars
that completed the race (over
150 started). They finished
72 hours behind the leader,
Luc Alphand, which means
their marathon lasted just
three days longer than that of
the professionals. Congratu-
lations are certainly in order!


Saint Barth Weekly:
How would you describe
"The Dakar?"
Kiki: It was hard, very hard.
We drove at least 14 hours
per day. We even drove one
stretch of 24 hours, only to
leave again three hours lat-
er. One day, it took us over
six hours to cover just 100
kilometers. The hardest
thing was sleep. We only
slept two or three hours per
night. In the car you are
obliged to wear your helmet
and driving suit, and it was
very hot. At night, on the
other hand, it was below
freezing in Morocco and
Mauritania.

Saint Barth Weekly:
How was your return
to Saint Barth?
Kiki: Fantastic! They rolled
out a red carpet on the run-
way at the airport. They sent
a private plane to pick me
up at Juliana Airport in
Saint Martin. Musicians
were there to play for me
and they put a floral wreath
around my neck. The mayor
presented me with a person-
al medal, and I felt as if I
was welcomed home like a
real hero!

EVENTS OF THE WEEK


Under the influence:
4.93 grams of alcohol
in theblood
A man in a drunken state
was finally stopped as he
drove his car through Gus-
tavia. Witnesses said they
saw him drive past and
tried to flag him down in
vain: he was driving with
a block of cement attached
to his car, creating sparks
and making an infernal
noise as he drove. This did
not stop him from contin-
uing for a few hundred
meters before a local resi-
dent, alerted by the noise
and the cries of those on
the sidewalk, managed to
take the key from the
dashboard when the car
was on the rue du Roi
Oscar II. The resident
immediately called the
police who came to pick
up the drunkard. The level
of alcohol measured 4.93
grams per liter of blood....

Opinion
The following letter was
written in response to the
article by Paul Schneider,
The Beginner's Guide to
St. Barts, published in The
New York Times on Sun-
day, January 15, 2006:

To THE TRAVEL
EDITOR,

As an annual visitor to St.
Barth, whence I am com-
posing this e-mail while
vaI'l.li."'i'i'- I read M r.
Schneider's good-humored
article with great amuse-
ment. However, he does a
great disservice to the staff
of La Petite Colombe, a
boulangerie in Lorient. Per-
haps he -ii 'uglil his com-
ment was in keeping with


been subpoenaed by the
attorney general and will
be called before the judge
next March.

18 tickets for not
wearing seat belts:
The state police have start-
ed to check to see if people
are wearing their seat belts
when driving, and these
spot checks will continue
they say. So far 18 inci-
dents have resulted in tick-
ets for both drivers and
passengers who did not
buckle up. A ticket can also
be given for the lack of a
seatbelt in the car itself.

A calm week overall:
The week was rather quiet
in terms of legal proceed-
ings in Saint Barth: a com-
plaint for fraud, and sever-
al complaints for problems
between neighbors were
called in. A minor was also
in police custody for dis-
ruptive behavior.


the overall tone of his piece,
but I believe such a mention
is merely malicious. Far
from having an old-fash-
ioned and surly disdain for
non- or nearly-non-French
speakers, they have always
been remarkably tolerant,
as have all St. Barth resi-
dents, of our "fractured"
French. Just this ii 'ninii .
as I made my first visit this
year to La Petite Colombe
for breakfast pastries and a
lunchtime baguette, I was
greeted by one of the ladies
with a genuine, "So nice to
see you again." Such
friendliness does not war-
rant a snide remark. I
believe Mr. Schneider owes
La Petite Colombe's staff a
retraction.

St. Barth Music Festival: From Carmen to Kids' Time


cert" last Saturday evening
with works by Samuel
Barber, Carl Nielson,
Charles Mark Loeffler,
and Tchaikovsky allowing
audiences the chance to
hear top name musicians
play in the intimate, infor-
mal setting of the festival.
The children's concert on
Sunday afternoon was
charming, with young
piano and violin students


r 1llc LLIIu cuIuIiII U1
the St Barth Music
Festival continued
on its merry way, winding
through a vast landscape of
musical styles, including
orchestra, opera, and even
kids' stuff. On Wednesday,
January 18, the festival
orchestra outdid itself with
a program of music that
was lively and familiar
enough to be a real crowd
pleaser. The surprising
thing is that this orchestra
is virtually a "pick up
band" made up of musi-
cians of astounding talent
and diversity they are able
to play convincingly with
very little rehearsal time.
Maestro Alex Klein kicked
off the concert with a fresh
interpretation of Ravel's
well-known "Bolero" (a
piece not listed in the pro-
gram as the rights to per-
form it had not yet been
acquired). A lovely Schu-
mann cello concerto fol-


son (later that day he
served as MC for the bene-
fit dinner at Eddy's). The
"fringe" events of the fes-
tival included an informal
concert at Le Sereno with
violinists Charles Stegman
and Rachel Bolt as well as
trumpet players Paul
Merkelo and James
Stevenson. With a total of
62 musicians, 8 dancers,
and one cartoonist, the fes-

Gouton on cello. The
evening concluded with
Dvorak's "New World
Symphony," which
brought the crowd to its
feet for a standing ovation.
They were on their feet
again the next night, Fri-
day, January 20, as Richard
Buckley led the orchestra
in an operatic evening with
excerpts from the popular
operas, "Aida," and "Car-
men," sung by festival
favorite, soprano Jane
Thorngren as Aida, and a
sultry performance by
mezzo-soprano, Emily
Golden, as Carmen, com-
plete with castanets.
Tom Fox, baritone, and
Philip Webb, tenor, were
also in fine voice, and the
acoustics in the Catholic
Church in Lorient lend
themselves perfectly to
this type of light opera.
Next on the agenda was
the "music lovers' con-


from Saint Barth on the
program along with musi-
cians from the festival
including Tereza Stanislav
on violin, John Largess on
viola, and Josh Gindele on
cello. Special guest, car-
toonist Dan Piraro (of
comic strip "Bizarro"
fame) used two charming
little hand puppets of dogs

tious undertaking by
Frances and Jill DeBroff,
who were welcomed,

event for years to come!

Port of Gustavia Opens New Building*


vl_.


Bruno Greaux, Port director


Over a decade ago, a master
plan was put into effect for
the development of the Port
of Gustavia, one of the major eco-
nomic factors of the island, as well
as one of the most charming ports in
the Caribbean. Today, the various
elements of that master plan are
falling into place as the docks them-
selves have been improved, and as
of this month a new building hous-
ing the Port offices opened on the
main dock in Gustavia, adding a new
allure to the Port.
The handsome new building, designed
by two Saint Barth-based architects
from France, Pierre Monsaingeon and
Philippe Stouvenot, is called "The
"Capitainerie." Its exterior combines
natural elements such as fieldstone and
wood, with more modern touches of
stainless steel such as the railings and
staircases that run along teak decks
and terraces, recalling similar elements
in nautical design. An outdoor lookout
above the curved entry area is topped
by a round roof, referred to as the
"world's largest Frisbee," adding a
modem touch to the structure.
Inside, the Port staff is comfortable in
modern offices, furnished with light
wood desks and bookshelves with blue
upholstered chairs that blend nicely
with the gray of the tiles on the floors
and the blue doors inI, 'uHiL ',ul, not to
mention the blue of the sea that can be
seen through all of the windows. "In
1984, the staff was only two people,"


points out Port director, Bruno Gr6aux.
"Today we have a staff of 10, and han-
dle all of the administration for the
main docks, as well as the year-round
residents of the Port, and the increased
traffic at the commercial dock in Pub-
lic. There are also more ferries and
cruise ships than there were in the
past. The Port has developed to meet
all of these needs."
The entry area on the
first floor is larger than
in the old "capitanerie,"
as well, provided a bet-
ter welcome for Port
clients as they fill out
paperwork upon arrival
or departure from the
harbor. Upstairs, in
addition to an office for
the Port director, one
for the harbor masters
(both with windows
overlooking the docks;
the harbor's masters
office has a view as far
as Saint Martin on a
clear day), and one for
administrative person-
nel, there is also a large
reception room with a
vaulted wooden ceiling.
This room opens onto a
long teak deck and a
teak terrace, also over-
looking the dock.
Other improvements
include latest in com-


puter technology and TV monitors in
the walls to display important informa-
tion, as well as an electronic weather
station to indicate the force and direc-
tion of the wind, and new services for
boats including electricity, telephone,
and Internet (there are under develop-
ment). "Another improvement for the
staff is a locker room with showers
where we can change," says Gr6aux,
who will have a large magnetic map of
the Port zone and individual magnet-
ized boats that can be placed accord-
ing to their placement in the Port. All
of these improvements mean not only
lvi 'i- working conditions for the staff,
but also lvi '! service for the clients of
the Port. "Some of our clients have
said the new Capitainerie is the most
beautiful they have ever seen," Gr6aux
notes.

*The Port of Gustavia is hosting
an open house at "The Capitanerie"
on Friday, January 27, from 6-8pm
for anyone who would like to visit
the new building.

ascades of diamonds,
pearls and precious
stones, or fine cut gems
in innovative settings, charac-
terize the one-of-a-kind, hand-
made pieces in the Giovannetti
jewelry collection currently on
display at Carat in Gustavia.
Created by jewelry designer
Mauro Giovannetti, the third
generation in a family of jew-
elers, these unique pieces are a
blend of classic and contempo-
rary design, perfect for the dis-
cerning modern woman who
wants to collect unique items
whose style will last a lifetime.
Starting with his ,i!.oirf.ii. c' at
the beginning of the century,
then his father Giovanni, Mau-
ro is the heir of a family lega-
cy of jewelers. His own
designs are signed "Giovan-
netti Jewelry" and combine dia-
monds, rubies, sapphires, emeralds,
pearls, and other glittering gems in
unusual settings. An excellence in
craftsmanship is evident in each
piece. "This is the first time I have
shown my collection in Saint Barth,"
says Giovannetti, who is here with


Tiziana Miscio who handles external
relations for the company. They
brought the collection here at the
request of American clients who are
interested in Giovannetti's designs.
The flagship Giovannetti store is in
Rome, on Via Fontanella Borghese,
very close to Piazza di Spagna and
Via Condotti, the heart of the Roman
shopping. There is not yet an outlet
in the United States: "We are a small
company and want to remain exclu-
sive," Giovannetti notes.
The jewelry is all created in Rome,
where 20 artisans turn Mauro's
designs into unique handcrafted
pieces of jewelry. He notes that 99%
of his designs are for women, but that
Giorgio Armani bought one of his
gold bracelets." Some of the earrings
and necklaces are "modular" so that
they can be worn in different ways. A
long white gold and pearl necklace
can be taken apart and worn as a
choker and bracelet, or one section
can hang as a pendant. A beautiful
pair of earrings can be worn as long
pendants, with bunches of tiny violet
sapphires that sparkle like sugar
hanging down almost to the shoulder,
or shortened to wear closer to the ear.


Other pieces combine emeralds
and pink pearls, chocolate pearls
from Tahiti and diamonds, or
red tourmaline and white pearls.
One of his signature pieces is a
necklace he calls "Emotion,"
with emeralds, white diamonds,
white gold, and Japanese pearls,
while the "Niagara" pendant
(inspired by Niagara Falls) fea-
tures a cascade of rubies with
black and white diamonds set in
blackened white gold.
As of last year, Giovannetti's
designs can also be seen in a
new boutique in Capri, and a
showroom in Moscow is located
just steps from Red Square.
Each piece reflects Giovannet-
ti's unique style of working:
rather than deciding on a design
and looking for the stones to
S create it, Mauro travels around
the world looking for exception-
al stones. "Once I find them I decide
on the design," he says. "It is the
beauty of the stones that inspires me."
