The French National
Assembly will
examine the legal
aspects concerning the
political evolution of
France's overseas outposts
starting on January 24,
according to the parliamen-
tary schedule. The law
would allow the islands of
Saint Barthelemy and Saint
Martin to gain the status of
autonomous Overseas Col-
lectivities (COM).
Approved by the French


Senate on October 31,
2006, this project is
defended by French Over-
seas Minister, Frangois
Baroin, and based on the
results of a referendum in
December 2003 in which
the residents of the two
islands voted to no longer
be considered communities
of Guadeloupe.
Before the text is finally
examined in a public ses-
sion at the National Assem-
bly, it has gone before the


Commission of Constitu-
tional Law, the legislation,
and the general administra-
tion of the French Repub-
lic. On January 17, Didier
Quentin, as appointed by
the commission, will pres-
ent his report in which he
suggests an amendment
that would create two seats
for representatives in the
National Assembly: one to
represent the future COM
of Saint Barth, and the
same for Saint Martin.

Michele Montas
Named Spokesperson
For UN Secretary
General Ban Ki-Moon


ntoine Heckly took top
honors in the fifth annual
local painting competi-
tion organized by the association
Saint B'Art, and the post office.
The awards ceremony was held
on Thursday, January 4 at gallery
Porta 34, at which time Heckly
received a check for 1,000 euros
and the promise that his painting
will be reproduced on 10,000
pre-stamped envelopes for sale
in the three post offices on the
island. Heckly thanked the
organizers for their support of
the island's painters, who find
themselves in a difficult situa-
tion: "Art tourism is in a free
fall," he stated, as a reminder
that there has been a marked


decrease in sales by local artists.
Second prize went to Yves Cer-
rato who was awarded a check
for 700 euros, while third prize
went to Josiane Piallou, who also
won a special Public Prize, voted
by those who saw the paintings
on display during the Arts Festi-
val organized by Saint B'Art in
early December. Her combined
prizes earned her 1,200 euros. A
painting by the promising young
painter, Orlane Greaux, a student
at the Mireille Choisy junior
high, took fourth place. A total of
25 painters participated in the
2006 competition whose theme
was "Paint Saint Barth." The
competition will be held again
next year.


Spokesperson for UN General Assem-
bly president, Julien Robert Hunte of
St. Lucia in 2003, Michele Montas
was named the new spokesperson for UN
Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon of South
Korea, on January 1, 2007. On December
18, 2006, Ban Ki-Moon replaced Kofi
Annan of Ghana, who held the number one
post at the UN for the past ten years.
Michele Montas made quite an impression
when she was in Saint Barth in 2004 during
the St. Barth Film Festival, when she pre-
sented Jonathan Demme's documentary, The
Agronomist, based on the life of her hus-
band, Jean Dominique. When we inter-
viewed Michele Montas .11 il1i time, she
said that the film was intended to bring the
case before "the international court of public
opinion," as The Agronomist tells the story
of Jean Dominique, a Haitian journalist who
was assassinated in April 2000 at the door of
Radio Haiti Inter, the station he owned and
operated 1 ihl his wife, Michele Montas. In
spite of pressure to solve the case, his mur-
der (and that of the radio station's watch-
man) remained unpunished, as does that of
Michele Montas' bodyguard who was assas-
sinated on Christmas Day 2002, while pro-
tecting her from bullets that were meant to
kill her. As a result, she sought political exile
in New York City for a second time, and has
lived there since February 2003.

Fourth place went to Orlane Grdaux, seen here, between Antoine Hec
winner of the fifth annual :inmii, competition,
and Yves Cerato, second place winner

St Barth Music Festival: What's New?


If it's January, it must
be time for the St.
Barth Music Festival.
Normally, the festival
would be starting about
now, with two dance per-
formances as the opening
act. "We had to change
our schedule since our
conductor, Richard Buck-
ley, had a conflict and had
to come later than usual,"
comments Jill DeBroff,
who serves as the right
arm to festival founder
and director, Frances
DeBroff, who is of course
her mother as well. "We
wanted top-notch dancers
of the same caliber as the
top-level musicians," says
Jill. "But the ones we
asked couldn't come late
enough in the month." As


a res
has a
ule-


John llis, leader oJ the New Urleans-based
John Ellis Jazz Quartet
ult this year's festival February 2- but with
n abbreviated sched- some old favorites and
January 23 through new twists to appeal to
music fans of many
stripes.

One of the hottest new
items on the festival roster
is a free rock concert at
8pm on January 27 at Zion
Garden in Saline. "Drum-
mer Ted Atkatz quit his
position with the Chicago
Symphony to promote his
band, NYCO," says Jill.
"He is a single guy and
figured this was the time
to explore his passion, his
dream. The music is not
hard rock, but more like
ballads." The local music
school, St. Barth Harmony
will run the bar to raise
money for their associa-
tion, and help with chairs
and parking. This outdoor
event should appeal to
younger audiences who
might not appreciate clas-
sical music. "There's
nothing like a good island
jump-up," says Jill.


The festival opens on Jan-
uary 23 with a double
header by the John Ellis
Jazz Quartet from New
Orleans, with Jason
Marsalis on percussion
and a new member of the
quartet, Aaron Golden-
berg, on piano. "The festi-
val has commissioned
John to write a jazz piece
for our flautist Mathieu
Dufour, principal flute of
the Chicago Symphony
Orchestra," explains Jill.
This is one of two pieces
commissioned by the fes-
tival this year: the second
is a trombone concerto by
James Stevenson, who
also wrote the Saint Barth
Overture in the mid-90s.
The soloist for the concer-
to is Nitzan Haroz, who
performs with the
Philadelphia Orchestra.
"What is exciting is that
he will be able to perform
this piece with orchestras
around the world," Jill
adds.

Also "new" this year is
the Miro String Quartet in
their first appearance at
the festival- after
Frances tried to get them
for three or four years, and
their schedule finally
allowed them to come.
The annual opera evening
closes the festival on Feb-
ruary 2, and features
Pagliacci, conducted by
Richard Buckely. An
orchestra concert, a con-
cert by the Suzuki violin
students, a piano and flute
concert, and another
chamber music concert
round out the festival
menu. For a full schedule:

A record number:

The electoral list hits 4,805


he local number of
voters hit new
highs in December
2006, with 595 inscrip-
tions for the electoral list
between January 1 and
December 31, 2006,
including 250 in the last
week of the year. Of these
595 requests, 188 enrolled
for the first time, and a
total of 554 were accept-
ed, with 41 rejected, by
the administrative com-
mission in charge of voter
registration for the munic-
ipality, and which closed
the list for the year on Sat-
urday, December 30. If
one adds the 77 people
added automatically at the
age of 18, that brings the
number of new inscrip-
tions to 631 for the year.
By subtracting 54 voters
removed from the list, the
total number of voters is
now 4,805 on the official
list that closes on Febru-
ary 28. This represents an
increase of 12% compared
to the previous list of
4,228 voters dated Febru-
ary 28, 2006.
This record number of
inscriptions is related to
the importance of the
French elections in 2007:
starting with the presiden-
tial elections which will
be held on Sunday, April


22 and Sunday, May 6,
2007, followed by the leg-
islative elections which
will be held on consecu-
tive Sundays, June 10 and
17, 2007. Yet the most
highly anticipated elec-
tions in Saint Barth will be
that for the future territori-
al council which will be
held before the first round
of presidential elections if
the political evolution of
Saint Barth into a more
autonomous COM (Over-
seas Collectivity) goes
into effect before the end
of the parliamentary ses-
sion in late February/early
April.
The high number of voters
can also be explained by
the belief of certain resi-
dents of the island that
being on the electoral list
is required to be a fiscal
resident of Saint Barth, yet
that is not true: citizens
who opt not to be on the
electoral list, but meet the
criteria of fiscal residents,
do not have to worry.
As of Wednesday, January
10, changes to the elec-
toral list to date can be
reviewed at City Hall,
where the final list will be
available for consultation
after it is closed on
Febraury 28, 2007.


Political evolution, fiscal status, tourism study:

The CLE organizes

three informational

meetings


very general assem-
bly of the members
of the CLE (Eco-
nomic Liaison Committee)
offers this group of socio-
professionals the opportu-
nity to check the status of
the eventual political evo-
lution of the island and the
economic factors it entails.
The next meeting, which
should be held in late Feb-
ruary or early March,
breaks the mold and will
actually be three days of
meetings with three dis-
tinct themes. Three law
professors, who were
asked by the CLE in 2002
to analyze the historic
Franco-Swedish treaty.
will lead the first meeting.
They will discuss the legal
aspects of the potential
evolution of Saint Barth
from a community in
Guadeloupe, which it has
been since 1948, into a
more autonomous Over-
seas Collectivity.
The second meeting will
reveal the results of a
study held for almost three
years by the CLE concern-
ing the fiscal future of the
island. The study has
examined the agreements
that will determine the
conditions under which the

new fiscal status of Saint
Barth will exempt resi-
dents from French national
taxation, and the situations
in which it will and will be
applicable.
The third meeting will be
based on the results of the
marketing study undertak-
en by Ipsos and the Robin-
son Company to determine
the tourist image of Saint
Barth. This study was held
during the summer and
fall, during which time a
sample of potential clients
who fit in the same demo-
graphic categories as the
islands current guests were
questioned, along with
current tourists as well.
The study also provides a
comparison of tourism
websites. The CLE, whose
goal is to present a plan
for the "harmonious and
long-lasting" economic
development for Saint
Barth, is convinced that
the island should have an
Internet portal adapted to a
clearly defined clientele:
"With a 50% annual
increase, the number of
online reservations for air-
lines and hotels continues
to outstrip other methods
of advertising. But in a
highly competitive con-
text, a simple presence on
the Internet is not enough.
The quality of the sites and
their online services now
constitute a decisive com-
petitive advantage,"
explains Jean-Marc
Greaux, president of the
CLE, which currently has
150 members.

PEOPLE WATCH

LEA DE HAAS


Dutch native who
lives in Sint
A Maarten, Lea de
Haas is a sailor at heart,
and has broken the "can-
vas" ceiling in more ways
than one. She came to
Saint Barth on her 49'
German Frers sailboat,
Synergy, to sail in the New
Year's Eve Regatta on
December 31, 2006, but
lack of a spinnaker put her
at a disadvantage in the
race. My bet is she'll be
back better prepared next
time.
She was luckier last June
when she sailed with an all
women's team, Team
WAVE, in the 100th annu-
al Newport-Bermuda race,
and won a division title,
earning the inaugural Car-
leton Mitchell Finisterre
Trophy as the yacht with
the best-corrected time in
the Cruiser Division. The
all women's team was
formed to raise money and
awareness for an organiza-
tion called 'Women
Against Violence Every-
where' (WAVE). De Haas
sailed with a crew of top
Caribbean female offshore
sailors including Team
WAVE organizer Val Doan
along with Annie Westcott,
Julie Swartz, Kate Lee,
Sierra Lowell, and Becky
Paull-Rowlette. Nagico


Insurance, a company that
has a workforce with 60%
women and is a big cham-
pion of women's rights
worldwide, is the principal
sponsor for Team WAVE.
Their victory in the New-
port-Bermuda race was the
first time an all female
team took home a trophy
in that event's history!
Her boat has had quite a
history: built it 1974, it
was damaged in hurricane
Bertha in 1996 and
repaired, then it actually
sank during hurricane
Lenny in 1999, yet de
Haas -who lives aboard
her boat- and her dog
both survived. Once again


By Ellen Lampert-Greaux
Photo: Photo Rosemond Greaux
S;A q the boat was repaired, this
S time by a new owner, just
Sin time for the Heineken
SRegatta in 2001. But in
2003, de Haas bought the
boat back and has been
living on it ever since.
She'll be sailing again in
Sthe Heineken come March,
and usually sails in the
BVI spring regatta. As the
33-year boat is not outfit-
ted with the latest in tech-
nology, plotting a course
can be a little tricky.
"She's an old lady," not a
hot shot racing boat," says
de Haas. All the same, de
Haas sure has a lot of fun
taking Synergy to the
races!

Christophe
Hugues. But his
designer ready-to-wear
clothes -that will be
on sale in St. Barth next
September- carry the
label "Valerian H."
Valerian like a stage

Hughes- a family
name well known in rtfl.
Saint Barth, which kY
stands to reason as this X'
young fashion designer I
now living in Paris was
born here. His grand-
parents and uncle live in
Gustavia, and he returns
twice a year to visit his
native island.
With his high-school diplo-
ma in hand, and two years
of Beaux Arts training under
his belt, the young artist
turned toward the world of
fashion. After working as an


assistant to the Belgian
designer, Dries Van Noten,
for two and a half years,
then for Christian Lacroix,
Yves Saint-Laurent, Dior,
and Paco Rabanne where he
worked on designer ready-
to-wear collections, Jean-
Christophe was on his way
up in the world of haute
couture. But working for

o. His 2008
tion is now
will be avail-


able in Saint Barth as of
September at Stephane
et Bernard and at
Nomades. The collec-
tion places an accent on
white, blue, and pastel
green, with cotton and
cotton voile fabrics.
Jean-Christophe's lines
are subtle, almost mini-
malist. "My style is like
myself, simple and
uncomplicated. My look
is timeless," explains the
designer. In addition to
ateliers in Levallois
-"actually a small facto-
ry," he confides- and a
showroom in the rue Saint-
Honore in Paris, the "Valer-
ian H" collections are also
sold in other Parisian bou-
tiques. They can also be
found in Nice and Marseille,
and as of next fall, in Saint
Barth. Additional informa-
tion can be found at

There's no math involved. The grid has numbers, but noth-

with reasoning and logic. It's fun. It's challenging. It's
addictive!"Fill in the grid so that every row, every column,
and every 3x3 box contains the digits 1 through 9."That's

* Ashtrays on beaches
Founded in 1996, SubProtect is a
non-profit organization dedicated
to the protection of the environ-
ment and the underwater sea beds.
Last year, they provide "Ashtrays
on the Beaches." The idea is to
provide the installation of cans-as-
ashtrays at the entrance to the
beaches so that smokers can use
the cans to collect their cigarette
butts. 14 of the island's 22 beaches will be outfitted. Feel
free to use them to help us keeping Saint-Barth clean!
