DELINQUENCY IN DECLINE


WELCOME!
The St. Barth Wee-
kly is happy to be
back for its fourth
season. The Wee-
kly is designed to
help you put your
finger on the pulse
of the local com-
munity Featuring
an English resume
of the top stories in
our French news-
paper, Le Journal
de Saint Barth, as
well as original
articles in English,
The St. Barth Wee-
kly is the only com-
pletely English-lan-
guage newspaper
on the island. It is
distributed on the
island every week
from November
through the end of
July. Our most
exciting news is
that each Friday,
The Weekly is also
available online at
Saint Barth Online
(www.st-
barths.com), the
wonderful web site
launched in 1996,
and now run by our
friends Bruno and
G6raldine Colletas.
Thanks to them,
you can download
every edition of
The St. Barth Wee-
kly, so that no mat-
ter where you are
in the world, you
can stay in touch
with your favorite
island.


he chief of the
squadron, Loic Baras,
commander of the gen-
darmerie for the Northern
Islands, presented his end of
year report covering the activi-
ty of the Saint Barth brigade in
2006. The report was positive,
in contrast to that of St. Mar-
tin, where delinquency saw an
overall increase of more than
12% while in Saint Barth there
was a sharp decline of more
than 21%, with the number of
crimes and infractions reduced
from 477 in 2005 to 375 by
the end of 2006. The number
of robberies was dramatically
reduced, from 35 in 2005 to
just 10 in 2006, or a decrease
of 71%! Public delinquency
(as opposed to crimes commit-
ted in private locations, also
decreased, from 171 to 132 for
a decrease of 22% in one year.


The theft of cars and scooters
remained at practically the
same leave: 106 reported in
2005 and 103 in 2006 with the
big difference being that 95%
of the cars stolen in Saint
Barth are found rather quickly.

Road safety more
of a problem
To quote the words of Major
Andreis, "at the end of the day,
the safety problem in Saint
Barth is on the roads." And the
numbers prove it. While delin-
quency is on the decline, the
number of road accidents is on
the climb, with six major acci-
dents in 2005 compared to thir-
teen in 2006. The accidents in
which people were injured
went from seven in 2005 to 16
in 2006. Yet no road deaths
took place in 2006. The news
on the roads in 2006 concerns


the 349 tickets given out for
not wearing seat belts, a first
on the island, as this rule was
rarely enforced in the past.
There has also been an
upswing in the lack of insur-
ance, jumping from 24 cases in
2005 to 40 in 2006, in spite of
the fact that driving il. i..uL
insurance can be brought
before the court. The total of
271 tickets given for not wear-
ing helmets is no higher than
the average. And what about
driving under the influence? A
total of 74 drunk drivers were
picked up in 2006 compared to
38 in 2005. This marks an
increase of 94% which does
not mean :lu. J i- i Hi under the
influence is on the increase, but
rather that the gendarmes were
more actively spreading the
word that one must make a
choice: "drink or drive."


Jazz Opens The 23rd Annual Music Festival


Ahit last year when they
closed the festival,
The John Ellis Quartet
was back for a double header
to kick things off at the 23rd
annual St. Barth Music Festi-
val, with concerts at 7pm and
9pm at the Catholic Church in
Gustavia on Tuesday, January
23. Based In New Orleans, the
quartet plays music written by
Ellis, with a smooth combina-
tion of Big Easy laid-back
sound and Big Apple edginess.
With Ellis on saxophone
(soprano and tenor) the group
includes Jason Marsalis on
percussion, Roland Guerin on
bass, and the spirited Aaron
Goldberg on piano (replacing
last year's Aaron Parks). This
year the group had a special
guest as well: flute player
Mathieu Dufour, who hails
from Paris, and is the principal


flute for the Chicago Sympho-
ny Orchestra. He joined the
quartet for the last piece on the
program, described by Ellis as
"the world premiere debut of
the Saint Barth risk-taking
piece for flute and jazz trio."
Trio, since Ellis did not play,
but stood close to Dufour on
stage, more for encouragement
than anything else it seems, for
even though they had never
played- or even had time to
rehearse the piece together-
Dufour seemed to have
absolutely no difficultly in
shifting from his primarily
classical stance into Ellis's
jazz idiom. "This music festi-
val is mostly classical," said
Ellis, "we are the token jazz
band. This piece is a hybrid to
bring the jazz and classical
sides of the festival closer
together." The piece was one


of two specially commissioned
by the festival this year.
Dufour's role at the festival
also includes the piano/flute
concert on January 25. After
that the hits keep coming with
the Miro string quartet on Jan-
uary 26, a free rock concert
with Ted Atkatz and NYCO at
Zion Garden on January 27,
and the annual opera evening
on February 2, with a chil-
dren's concert, more chamber
music and an orchestral
evening along the way. A ben-
efit dinner at Eddy's Restau-
rant raises money for this
ambitious, one-of-kind festival
that brings some of the world's
greatest musicians to the island
year after year in a feat of
organization and perseverance
that must be applauded. The
complete program can be
found page 08.

People Watch

DAVE STEVENSON


His work is both ele-
gant and solid.
Graceful sculptures
that evoke the forms of bal-
lerinas double as earrings,
necklaces echo the shapes
of larger pieces cast in
bronze. This makes per-
fectly good sense once one
meets the artist, Dave
Stevenson (www.artinjec-
tion.com), who started out
as a sculptor, then moved
into jewelry. "I wanted to
give a gift to a girlfriend
and made two little wire
sculptures," he recalls.
"She stuck them in a slice
of tomato in her salad, like
jewelry," he recalls. And
that was the start of his
small wearable sculptures,
currently on display at Les
Artisans in Gustavia, where


a champagne reception in
his honor is planned at 6pm
on Tuesday, January 31. "I
started sculpting in clay,
then fiberglass and steel,"
says Stevenson, who is cur-
rently living in New York
City, after stints in Califor-
nia and Montana. E-L ci;
artist wants to spend some
time in Manhattan," he
notes. His studio in Mon-
tana was an old flour facto-
ry where he devoted his
time to painting.
Stevenson turned to art after
two years of pre-med at
William and Mary College
in Virginia, and has devel-
oped an abstract style that
sometimes turns to figura-
tive pieces-birds and
dancers, for example-and
he has a project on the


drawing boards with chore-
ographer Cheronne Wong in
Seattle. Another of his
pieces is an 18-karat white
gold bracelet created for a
special auction at the Natur-
al History Museum in NYC
in honor of former president
Bill Clinton's 60th birthday
party. "This piece is based
on a West African symbol,"
says Stevenson, who made
a second copy of the
bracelet that he placed on
the wrist of Chelsea Clin-
ton, and the artist himself
wears the prototype.
Stevenson first came to
Saint Barth in 1998 and
met Joanne Quetel and
Albert Yaphet at Les Arti-
sans, where he had his first
show in 2000, and has
shown work there every
year since. This year's
show combines sculpture
and jewelry, marking the
boutique/gallery's first
show for a jeweler. Some
of his pieces were also
shown (and sold) in a fash-
ion show at Nikki Beach.
"I feel a connection to the
sea," says the artist, who
swims regularly and likes

St Barth Weekly n105


to shoot his work in the
ocean or on the beach.
Stevenson's work ranges
from a sinking ship in ster-
ling silver-to be worn as a
pendant or lapel pin- that
sits a base of brass DVDs
for the cast of crew of the
James Cameron film,
Titanic, to amusing little
dogs on chain leashes. He
has also attended Burning
Man, an art happening in
the Nevada desert, where
he did elaborate face paint-
ing. But the bronze pieces
seem closest to his heart:
"All of my sculptures are
conceived in the round and
can be appreciated from all
directions," he says, hold-
ing up and turning an
abstract piece called Felici-
ty, which is also available
as a pendant. "What I like
about bronze," he says, "is
that you can create dagger
sharp edges, really hone the
surfaces."

Silent Auction At Francois Plantation

To Benefit Jane Goodall Institute


Anyone who has
been to the restau-
rant at Frangois
Plantation recently has met
a curious creature: a won-
derful bronze statue of a
Bonobo Ape is sitting in the
corner, looking very much
like a primate version of
The Thinker. Number three
in a series of eight, this
sculpture is signed by artist
Florence Jacqueson, and
will be auctioned off on
March 8, 2007 following a
silent auction currently
underway at Fran9ois Plan-
tation, where the bidding
began at 20,000 euros
($25,000 dollars). Those
who have made a silent bid
can call in to increase their
bid via telephone on March
8.
"I work with the Rainforest
Foundation and the Jane
Goodall Institute," says
Frangois Plantation's Robert


Eden, a man who is
clearly environmentally
concerned. The owner
of vineyards in the
South of France, Eden
is aware of the reper-
cussions of climate
change. "The rainforest
is one of the most
important parts of the
planet," he points out,
describing the mapping
projects and other
actions designed to help
indigenous populations
protect their environ-
ment. The Bonobo Apes are
not so lucky. Considered
man's closest primate rela-
tive, with 98.4% shared
generic make-up (DNA),
their habitat in the forests of
Democratic Republic of
Congo is decreasing due to
illegal logging and they are
coveted for the meat trade.
From 100,000 of these apes
in 1980, it is estimated that


only 5,000 remain today.
"These are like our
cousins," stresses Eden.
"And they are now an
endangered species, and
only exist in one place. We
must create protected habi-
tats." In his own way, Eden
is furthering the cause. "The
statue in the restaurant has
created awareness through
discussion," explains the
man whose wine labels fea-
ture gorillas and medicinal


plants (one dollar from the
sale of each bottle goes to
the Rainforest Foundation).
"My policy is that this is not
a one-of-a-kind thing or just
a special event," he adds.
"But part of something that
is very important to me, and
part of my working life."
All proceeds from the auc-
tion-less the artist's fee
and shipping costs- go to
the Jane Goodall Institute.
Coincidentally the auction
takes place on March 8,
International Women's Day,
and Goodall should certain-
ly be pleased with this event
in honor of her good work
in nurturing chimpanzees
and other animals. As
Goodall says: "We have a
choice to use the gift of our
lives to make the world a
better place." Robert Eden
clearly agrees!
For additional information

Donna Del Sol Redefines Classic Jewelry


Jewelry store that
stands out from the
crowd is Donna del
Sol, a boutique that has
been open in Saint Barth
since 1994, on the upper
level of the Carre d'Or in
Gustavia (She also now has
a small store at the Guana-
hani Hotel for those who do
not want to battle traffic in
town). Recently expanded
to include the space next
door, the boutique has
showcases of ready-to-wear
pieces, but also serves as a
showroom where customers
can order custom designs,


tailored to any budget.
The owner of the store,
Donna Rosell, is an Ameri-
can who has lived in Saint
Barth for 17 years. Her phi-
losophy is to create jewelry
that the modem woman can
actually wear. "I like to set
precious stones in sportier
mountings, in keeping with
today's more active
lifestyle," she says. An
example of this is her link-
ing of diamonds in any size
and any color with simple
gold links that can be worn
as a bracelet or necklace.
"You should be able to wear
your jewelry," she insists.
Unusual gemstones are
another signature of the
Donna del Sol collections:
opals and tourmalines in
custom-cut shapes and col-
ors can be made into pieces
dressy enough for a black-
tie event. "Coral and other


stones in all shades of red
and orange, as well as pink,
are very popular," Rosell
notes. She works with fiery
opals, pink and red sap-
phires, and pale pink kun-
zite, pairing them in unusual
combinations such as pink
opals and brown diamonds.
"I recently completed a
necklace of natural pink
pearls. They are very soft on
the skin," she says.
A recent addition to the
Donna del Sol line is the
Symbology collection,
which includes a white
and yellow gold peace
symbol, with one side rep-
resenting peace; the other
love. This collection also
includes pieces based on
the prayers of the Kabbal-
ah, which is studied by
Jews and non-Jews around
the world. "We have ten
different prayers that can
be laser-cut directly into
the stones, so that each
piece is custom-made,"
explains Rosell, who
believes in the mystical


powers these prayers can
offer.
Her newest collection is
called "Astro Us," and will
launch this season. "The
pieces include a circle of
Zodiac signs with a sun in
the middle with white dia-
monds to represent the
female and a flame of black
diamonds to represent the
male in a couple," she
explains. "The sun and
flame can be moved to each
person's individual sign.
These make very personal
gifts."
On the horizon is a new
boutique in St. Tropez,
France, which will double
as a distribution point for
the Donna del Sol brand in
Europe. "This is a natural
expansion," says Rosell,
who caters to a decidedly
international clientele. Her
website, www.donnadel-
sol.com, also has an interna-
tional reach and is becom-
ing a successful marketing
tool. "People order every
day on line," she notes.

Neil d'Ourson At
Gallery Porta 34


Close To 70 Dentists

In Saint Barth


ea Quark Vibration, a piece
by visual artist/sculptor Neil
d'Ourson is on display at
Gallery Porta 34 through January
1. The idea for this sculpture is a
coral sea fan covered with metal
and designed in harmony with the
law of the golden ratio, the abso-
lute conception of beauty. "Inspi-
red by the pyramids in Egypt, the
United Nations building in New
York, Beethoven's Fifth Sym-
phony, or a Stradivarius violin, I
conceived this sculpture as a one-
of-a-kind piece, a ball of energy in
total harmony with the golden
ratio," explained its creator. "This
sphere which turns on a bi-polar
base, shows us via its from that,
from microcosm to macrocosm,
the Universe is nothing more than
a series of polarized spheres."
Neil d'Ourson:
Gallery Porta 34,
through February 1.


or the thirteenth
consecutive year,
David Grodberg
and Frangois Chlous
have organized dental
seminars-this year cov-
ering two weeks from
January 15-26-under
the umbrella of their
non-profit organization,
Saint-Barth Dental Asso-
ciation. Twenty-five
dentists participated in
the first seminar led by
Dr. Roger Wise, from
January 15-19, on the
subject of "Comprehen-
sive Treatment: Inter-
relationships of? Peri-
odontics, Orthodontics
and Restorative Den-
tistry." The second semi-
nar, January 22-26,
attracted 43 dentists and
was led by Dr. Marty


Zase, from Glastonbury,
Connecticut, who spoke
on the theme of "Cos-
metic Pearls for the Gen-
eral Practitioner."
According to Frangois
Chlous, co-organizer of
the event, "the demand
for aesthetic dentistry is
the most important
demand by our clientele.
The goal of this seminar
is to allow general prac-
titioners to understand
the most recent advances
in this domain."
As in past years, the
conferences took place
in the seminar room at
the Christopher Hotel in
Pointe Milou. Some of
the dentists stay at the
hotel, as well as other of
the island's hotels, or
rental villas for "regu-


lars:" 75% of the partici-
pants return every year,
and consider the semi-
nars a great way to learn
as well as share a vaca-
tion with their families.
They also take advan-
tage of the music festival
concerts that take place
at the same time. A
majority of the dentists
come from the East
Coast of the United
States, but an increasing
majority comes from
Europe. Among the
countries represented
this year are Sweden,
Austria, Germany, and
France, including one
attendee who was
encouraged to come by
an American dentist she
met in China...
