Telethon 2006 Announced


lans are under-
way for the
20th anniver-
sary of the French
fund-raising Telethon,
both on a national
and local level. In
Saint Barth, the Lions
Club will run the
pledge center for the
Northern Islands, and
is requesting that
associations organize
their own fund-rais-
ing drives and
encourage the entire
population to show its support
for this effort. The goal of the
Lions Club is simple: to sur-
pass the 23,255 euros of
pledges and donations made


C ~g~-4-

~i &01a~


in 2005 in Saint Barth and
Saint Martin. In the Antilles,
the event will run from
3:00pm on Friday, December
8 through Saturday, Decem-
ber 10 at 8:00pm. The pledge


center for Saint Barth will be
located next to the Capitainer-
ie on the main dock in Gus-
tavia, and will remain open
during the 30 hours of the
Telethon


Telethon Fund-Raising Drives


Light Up The Telethon
Across from the pledge center
on the dock in Gustavia, the
Association for the Protection
of Public (ASP) hopes to
meet its big challenge: to
form and light up the word
"Telethon" during the event.
In addition they are planning
a torchlight parade and a
make-up workshop. Cactus
Production will provide a
musical ambiance and ASC-
CO will participate with the
sale of local specialties for
lunch and dinner.

ALC's Nautical
Challenge
The beach in Corossol will be
another center of activity dur-
ing the Telethon, where ALC
(the association from
Corossol) will organize vari-
ous nautical activities during
a 25-hour period. These
include buoy races, swim-
ming, kayaking, paddle races
(windsurfing without the
sails), football, and games on
the beach for small chil-


dren... all with an eye to rais-
ing money. These activities
will start at 4:00pm on
December 8 and continue
non-stop through 5:00pm on
Saturday, December 9.

Arts Festival
for the Telethon
The fourth edition off the arts
festival called Art En Fete,
organized by the Saint B'Art
association, will be dedicated
to the Telethon. Rather than
take place at the Wall House
as in the past, this year's
event will take place in the
upstairs room at the Capi-
tainerie on the dock in Gus-
tavia. The program includes a
concert by the children of the
Suzuki violin school, a per-
formance by the actors of SB
Artists, a series of videos pre-
sented by the Saint Barth
Film Festival, and a recital by
the Escapade and Bons
Chceurs choirs. This year's
entries in the Saint B'Art
paining competition will be
displayed downstairs, around


the pledge center. Entry to the
various events is one euro,
and all monies will be donat-
ed to the Telethon.

Arrows for the Telethon
At the archery center in Saint-
Jean, the Francs Archers of
Saint Barth are organizing a
variety of activities: in addi-
tion to an archery contest for
beginners, there are also
workshops in more advanced
archery styles, and a leg of
lamb shoot, a popular coun-
tryside activity in France. The
idea is to hang a leg of lamb
at 45 feet and each archer has
five arrows; the archer who
places the most arrows in the
target wins the leg of lamb.
The fun begins at 4:00pm on
Friday and continues as late
as possible Friday night, with
a 10:00am start on Saturday
until the end of the Telethon.

Everyone is invited to partici-
pate in these events. In Saint
Barth, to make a donation to

SONY BRIN PASSES AWAY


It was a very emotional
Tuesday afternoon at
the Catholic Church in
Gustavia during the funeral
services for Sony Brin,
fourth deputy mayor, who
was found dead at his home
in Gouverneur on Monday
morning. The recently reno-
vated church was not suffi-
cient to hold the large
crowd that attended the
service preceding the burial
at the cemetery in Saint
Jean. In addition to his fel-
low municipal council
members, a delegation of
elected officials from Saint
Martin attended as well,
paying a last tribute to a
man who spent almost three
decades in the political serv-
ice of his island. The mayor
also offered homage to
Sony Brin in a communique
to the press and public, as
published below: "The
mayor, the municipal coun-


cil, and all of the municipal
personnel of Saint Barthele-
my are saddened by the
death of their colleague and
friend Sony Brin. He passed
away on Monday, Decem-
ber 4 at his home in Gou-
verneur. He was 52 years
old. As fourth deputy may-
or, he was responsible for
the island's commission on
tourism, transportation, and
public relations. Born in
Saint Barth on October 12,
1954, he was an only child
who at the early age of nine
lost his father. His mother
raised him alone in the
1960s with help from a
large extended family. It
was this proximity, espe-
cially with his uncle, who
taught him his profession
as a businessman, which
resulted in the ownership
of jewelry and shoe
stores. Sony was one of
the only jewelers on the

island whose prices
remained affordable for
his compatriots.
Passionate about public life,
early on he became active in
the development of this
island, Saint-Barthelemy, in
both economic and political
affairs. He knew that on a
small island like ours, these
two forces are like the two
sides of a scale. He always
respected the separation of
these two elements with an
eye toward harmonious
development. It was always
in this spirit that he directed


his efforts in terms of the
promotion of tourism for
our island. During his 29
years and nine months as a
public figure, he defended
the interests of the munici-
pality, especially during the
23 years and 9 months he
served as a deputy mayor.
We offer our sincere condo-
lences to his family and his
friends, and share the pain
of their loss which is
marked with sadness by our
entire community."
Bruno Magras,
mayor of Saint Barthelemy

Six new bins and the trash collection center advances


he reorganization of
the trash collection
center continues:
after the paving of the back
part of the loading platform
and the arrival of an auto-
matic bridge several
months ago, there are now
six new metal bins, and a
new truck to lift them, that
have been in service for the
past two weeks. The bins
replace the old metal bas-
kets that were rusted and
not adaptable to automatic
machinery. Four of the six
are already in use: one for
aluminum cans, one for
household trash, one for
glass, ceramics, and other
metal cans, and the final
one for iron. A truck with
an automatic arm picks
them up. This new phase of
the operation represents an
investment of approximate-
ly 60,000 euros.


M-
- S S
7sl hr_ ~


Other than simplifying the
work at the center, these
new bins, painted white


and marked with large blue
squares with white letters,
also greatly improve the


overall look of the site.
Marceau Danet, its direc-
tor, hopes this will encour-
age people to show more
respect for the area.
Yet there is more to come:
after the rush of the tourist
season, the entry to the site
should be paved as well,
and the direction of traffic
flow will be improved. The
crushing of metal should
also be improved with the
repairs made to the
machinery on the one hand,
and the moving of the
machine closer to the loca-
tion of the incinerator on
the other. There should also
be a new "arm" to lift
things to the machine. One
hopes that the metal crush-
ing machine will be back in
running order by February
2007.


Recycling Project At The Junior High
A aluminum and glass to one
side: the rest to the other. For -.
the past two weeks, junior
high students have been engaged in a i
recycling project. Five collection .1
points around the school now have
two different trash containers- one
for glass and aluminum, the second I6
for all other trash. This is part of a
sustainable environment project et5
going on throughout French high
schools that is aimed at teaching stu-
dents how to deal with today's envi-
ronmental needs without compro-
mising the needs of future genera-
tions. Six students volunteered for
the first week of recycling. Their

EASYCRUISE SAILS TO SAINT BARTH


After the creation of
easyJet and the
easyHotel chain,
entrepreneur Stelios Haji-
Ioannou moved into the
low-cost cruise market. As
announced this week, easy-
CruiseOne will ply the
waters of the Caribbean
this winter with a new itin-
erary that takes in the
islands of St. Martin, St.
Barth, St. Kitts, Nevis, and
Antigua.

"We are extremely enthusi-
astic about this new
Caribbean itinerary," says
Stelios Haji-Ioannou, the
founder of easyCruise. "We
discussed various options
for a new itinerary includ-
ing Miami, The Bahamas,
and Barbados, where we

If 'Chante Nwel' means
the singing of Christmas
carols in Creole, then
Kasika & Benzo is certainly
the most popular group
from Guadeloupe to sing
Creole Christmas songs.
They will appear in Saint
Barth on December 21 for a
big holiday celebration
organized by ASCCO in
Colombier. Kasika & Benzo
was formed in 1997 at the
initiative of the municipality
of Pointe-a-Pitre, which
wanted to organize a Christ-
mas carol event on the Place
de la Victoire. Declic Com-
munication noted the suc-
cess of this event and sug-
gested that the musicians,
who were not officially a
group, make an album.
Released in November
1997, the album was a huge
success. In December 1997,
they organized a second
concert, this time taped by
RFO television and broad-
cast during the Christmas
holiday period. Albums,

can enjoy daytime activi-

concerts, and tours followed
in Guadeloupe and through-
out the Caribbean. Kazika &
Benzo were even invited by
the municipality of Nantes
to perform in the Erdre Fes-
tival. This year marks the
second time they will appear
in Saint Barth: the first time
was in December 2003
when Romy and Cactus
Production were able to
bring one of the most popu-
lar Christmas groups to the
island. This time, it is ASC-
CO who is responsible for
their appearance. This free
concert and Christmas carol
event will take place on the
tennis court at ASCCO in
Colombier.

SUPPORT ASCCO
The large size of the group,
Kazika & Benzo, makes the
concert very expensive for
ASCCO to produce. Any-
one interested in making a
donation to this non-profit
association should contact
