Intended to promote h Christophe Langree
the creativity of the concocted a new
island's chefs and dessert: Grilled slices

inclined to hire a pri- at Tatno, the restaurant at the Hotel Christopher served with rum mint

vate chef for their villa than eat out, this culi-
nary experiment runs through Monday, Febru-
ary 26. The idea is simple: using exclusively
regional products, the chefs create a recipe-
appetizer, main dish, or dessert- which is
added to the regular menu during this week-
long event. The list of ingredients is specified
and in certain restaurants the recipe is also
available for diners.
At the Carl Gustaf, chef Emmanuel Motte took
up the challenge and created a different recipe
for each evening: in addition to his usual menu
he has added a dish with the flavor, spices, and
ingredients of the Caribbean. A Tarte Tatin with
corossol sorbet treated the diners on the first
night of the event. On the evening of Carnival
he made Chicken Colombo with "small" veg-
etables, followed the next evening by Grilled
Lobster accompanied by sweet potato puree,
then a Chicken Breast marinated in honey and
coconut milk with Creole rice. Friday night fea-
tures a West Indian-style Crab with spinach,
Saturday another Chicken Colombo with veg-
etables, and on Sunday evening, a hot/cold
West Indian lobster salad. Then he'll finish
with a flourish on Monday with a Banana Tart
Tatin with corossol sorbet. All of the recipes are
available if requested
Taino, the restaurant at the Hotel Christopher,
was just about full on the first evening: Chef
Philippe had prepared Mahi-Mahi marinated in
ginger, lime, and mango juice, with papaya
chutney, and stuffed Cristophine squash, as the
special of the week. "People really liked the
idea," said a spokesperson for the hotel. At Do
Brazil, the same train of thought: enthusiastic
about the idea, chef Mohamed Irain prepared
Tuna layered with Mango with an infusion of
ginger, lime, and coconut juice, with plantains,

sorbet and crispy cookies. And to encourage
you to try it at home, the dessert comes with
the recipe... in French and English!
At La Route des Boucaniers, already a special-
ist in Creole cuisine, Francis Delage decided to
promote his "Creole Platter," complete with
cod fritters, stuffed crab, Creole blood sausage,
cod fish salad, sliced tuna, conch gratin, lobster
spring roll. And who does this appeal to: "the
North American clientel doesn't really go for
the Caribbean connotation," Delage says, "The
most receptive to this type of event are the
Europeans." At the Wall House, Frank Math-
evet had an interesting idea, which is to add a
Caribbean accent to the dished already on the
menu. For example a pumpkin crumble, for
which he is happy to share the recipe.
Jean-Luc Grabowski, the chef at the Sereno,
added an appetizer: a carpaccio of fish per-
fumed with lime and coconut. At the Marine,
(closed on Monday), chef Christophe Cesaro
offered as of Tuesday, a thick cut of Yellow
Snapper sauteed in its skin with a hot/cold
combination of marinated peppers and pump-
kin with lime juice and Creole rice. At Ti Saint-
Barth, also beginning on Tuesday, Pascal
Giglio created a complete menu for the occa-
sion: an appetizer of Tomato Gazpacho with
large shrimp and melon mousse, followed by
Tournedos of Mahi-Mahi with pineapple
caramelized with rum and ginger, and to com-
plete the meal, warm chocolate cake with a
"heart" of coconut or corossol ice cream. At the
Tamarin, Maxime Deschamps, who reigns in
the kitchen there, opted for the hot appetizer of
Conch Ravioli in garlic cream.
Au Port, The Strand, Grain de Sel, Nikki
Beach, and La Mandala are also participating
in the Caribbean Cuisine Week.

environmentally concerned.
"The rainforest is one of the most important

Political Evolution

For Maxime Desouches,

foreigners should not be subject

to French national taxes

Maxime Desouches is
a city councilman from
the opposition slate. His
position is that foreigners
who own property in Saint
Barth should not be
subject to French national
taxes when the island
evolves into a more
autonomous Overseas
Collectivity. He explains
his position below:

"I would like to respond to the
letter from the mayor to 'resi-
dents and non-residents,
French or foreign, of Saint
Barthelemy' published in the
last edition of the Saint Barth
Weekly, and which states his
interpretation of the specific
laws concerning the creation of
an Overseas Collectivity in
Saint Barth in terms of fiscal
residency. If everyone is aware
that a waiting period of five years is
necessary to become a fiscal resident
of Saint Barth, in order to avoid an
uncontrollable influx of people or
businesses seeking financial advan-
tages, it may still be necessary to take
another look at the interpretation of
the tax policy that will be put into
place, no matter the nationality of the
persons concerned, especially those
whose fiscal residence is not in
France, or in Saint Barthelemy, but
who own property or businesses on
the island.
According to article L.O. 6214-4. -I
of the law, "moral or physical persons
that do not meet the residency condi-
tions stated above (i.e. a minimum of
five years living on the island) are
considered as having their fiscal resi-
dence in France." This can be meant
to mean that all people who are not
fiscal residents of Saint Barth regard-
less of their nationality or the length
of their residency on the island, be
subject to French national taxation

and especially the wealth tax that
would be applied to their property
and revenue generated by these peo-
ple. If that is the case for French citi-
zens living in metropolitan France or
those who cannot justify five years of
living in Saint Barth as of the date
when the law creating the Overseas
Collectivity goes into effect, it is
unthinkable that that ruling also apply
to foreigners or even French citizens
who have never lived in France.
It is contrary to the spirit of article
6214-4 -I- 30 of the same law which
states that a fiscal agreement will be
established "to prevent tax evasion
and double taxation." In addition, fis-
cal agreements established in July
1983 between New Caledonia and
France, and in May 1988 between
Saint Pierre and Miquelon, and
France, make it clear that "the present
agreement applies to persons who are
residents of a territory or the two ter-
ritories;" the agreements cover those
persons who live in these territories,

excluding those whose fiscal
domicile is elsewhere in the
The goal of the future fiscal
agreements that will be worked
out between the future elected
officials of Saint Barth's Over-
seas Collectivity and the
French Finance Minister is to
preserve the level of tax pay-
ments currently made to France
by residents who are subject to
national taxes, but not to tax
those persons who do not live
in France and have property in
Saint Barth. It seems clear that
foreigners, or even French citi-
zens who live abroad and come
to live in Saint Barth, should
not be concerned by this fiscal
agreement since they are not
"evading" French taxes.
On the other hand, it is com-
pletely logical that they should
be subject to local taxes that
the future collectivity might decide to
enact. Yet it is not logical that a per-
son who has never set foot in France,
and comes to live in Saint Barthele-
my should find himself subject to
French taxes that would be paid to
France, rather than local taxes that
would be paid to the collectivity.
Let us not forget that our foreign
friends with their investments and
expenditures on the island help drive
the local economy. They should not
become victims of an unjust decision
in their regard. Our role, as elected
officials, is to be concerned about our
constituents but we should not forget
the others who do not have the right
to vote, and we should assure them
representation as well.
We must then be extremely attentive to
the editing of the fiscal agreements in
order to avoid that these contradictions
sap the very substance of the law, and
eventually deprive us of eventual tax
revenues that would be, above all,
beneficial to the collectivity.

There may be fewer big
projects than in recent
years, but municipal
construction is ongoing
in a variety of areas.
Here is an overview of
current projects as outli-
ned by Sylvain Michelet,
director of the municipal
technical services office.

Tennis Courts Within
Four Months

Part of the master plan for
the sports zone in Saint
Jean, the construction of
four municipal tennis
courts began ten days ago,
close to the archery range,
on land previously used by
a stone crushing company.
They will be hard courts
with a drain to evacuate

rainwater. It is estimated
that it will take four
months to complete the
construction. There is no
clubhouse planned at the

on Barnes Quay

While the restoration of
the Atwater Quay is
almost at its end, the work
on Barnes Quay is also
moving along nicely. The
steel piling to hold up the
future dock is in place and
the contractor is currently
pouring the concrete for a
pedestrian esplanade that
will run from the Atwater
Quay to the Wall House by
way of the Barnes Quay,
whose owners have
allowed for a public pas-

ated the former dock was
carted away but some
remains in the harbor and
will be removed as part of
a dragging operation in
May. The municipality had
purchased part of the
Barnes Quay and demol-
ished it for two reasons:
facilitate the maneuvering
of mega yachts and create
a harmonious perimeter to
the port.

Security Booth
At The Commercial

In keeping with The Inter-
national Ship and Port
Facility Security Code
(ISPS), access to the com-
mercial dock in public will
now be controlled. A secu-
rity booth is under con-
struction and will allow for
the verification of those
entering and exiting the
area. The system should be
operational by early March.

Second Reverse
Osmosis Plant Open

The island's second
reverse osmosis desalina-
tion plant opened on Janu-
ary 25, 2006. Analysis of



the water by local health
officials were good and
water from this new plant,
capable of producing 1500
cubic meters of water per
day, is flowing into the
system. Yet there were
several hiccups in the dis-
tribution of city water last
week, especially on hill-
tops and at the end of the
Naturally the fault lies in
the production process but
not with the reverse osmo-
sis system: the incinerator
that should produce steam
vapor needed to operate
one of the desalination
plants was out of order at
the same time that there
was a technical problem
with one of the two motors
at the water plant, causing
a decrease in the daily pro-
duction to less than 1200
cubic meters while the
demand-which only con-
tinues to increase- is
closer to 2600 cubic
meters per day. All should
soon be restored to normal
according to the technical
services director.

Cleanliness At
The Trash Center

After improvements such
as paved surfaces and six
new metal bins with a
truck to lift them, the
island's trash collection
center also got a new trash
truck at the end of the
year, as well as a mechani-
cal shovel to help sort the
trash before it is crushed.
Speaking of crushing, the
metal-crushing machine,
out of service for many
months, can now be
repaired as the necessary
parts have finally arrived.
One hopes it will be back

in operation during the
month of March, with a
new site closer to the

Work Slow On
Former Fire Station

Its use is yet to be deter-
mined even if the mayor
has brought up the idea of
using the building that has
replaced the former fire
station as a tax office.
Whatever it becomes,
work is not completed on
the building due to con-
tainers that have not
arrived with the materials
required to finish the con-
struction. The materials
should arrive in the next
few days and the project
should be completed with-
in the next few months.

in Anse des Cayes

The municipality is current-
ly completing a playground
in Anse des Cayes. On Sat-
urday, the contractor
installed the equipment
acquired by the local associ-
ation, Lezard des Cayes,
and will now pave the area.
A concrete slab will be

poured and cover with a
shock-absorbent surface to
ensure the safety of children
who play there. In the next
three weeks, work should
also begin on a building for
use by the association.

Vacation 'Homework'
At The Elementary

Taking advantage of the
February vacation period,
the municipality is current-
ly paving the interior
courtyards at the elemen-
tary school in Gustavia,
using the same concrete
slabs as used in the play-
grounds. This is then cov-
ered with a shock-
absorbent surface. The
school's cistern will also
be restored so that the
school can use cistern
water if there are problems
with city water.

Caribbean Whale
In 2009
In June 2006, during the
58th Annual Meeting of
the International Whal-
ing Commission, France
announced its intention to
create a whale sanctuary in
the waters of the
Caribbean. After an initial
meeting held in Guade-
loupe to form a steering
committee for the project,
a second meeting was held
last week in Martinique
and the project was pre-
sented to various regional
partners. In order to best
ensure the protection of the
habitats for the 30 different
species of whales and
marine mammals in the
area, the date of 2009 has
been set as the deadline for


the creation of the sanctu-
ary. At this time, only
waters controlled by
France are included, but
the goal is to extend the
size of the zone, said Frank
Mazeas, the head of the
marine ecology project in
Guadeloupe, as quoted in
an article by Associated
Press: "The Dutch West
Indies, and other zones
like Montserrat and the
Virgin Islands would like
to join this initiative. The
idea to increase the zone
little by little, so that the
sanctuary extends beyond
French territorial waters.
The marine mammals do
not understand the concept
of frontiers."

The Marine Park answers
questions concerning
the marine environment
and environmental protection

At the time when
dinosaurs were but simple
cells and the earth was still
in its infancy, man would
not have been able to
breathe the air on our plan-
et. Volcanic activity
spewed forth a mix of tox-
ic gases and steam. Once
in the atmosphere, this mix
fell back to earth in the
form of rain that washed
the earth, cleansing it of
the elements needed to
make salt. A hundred mil-
lion years of this cycle was
enough to definitively add
salt to our seas and oceans.

Celestial objects, such as
planets and stars, exert a
gravitational attraction
toward other objects in
their path. The earth and
the moon are not exempt
from this phenomenon.
The moon tries to pull our
planet towards it. But the
moon's small size only
allows it to influence the
water of our oceans. At the
same time, Planet Earth,
exerting its own force,
pulls the water back in the
other direction. This war
of the Titans results in ris-
ing water levels in the
places on the earth closest
to the moon, causing high
tides. But the earth pulls
back just as strongly
resulting in a similar wave
on the other side of the
planet. The orbit of the
moon and the rotation of
the earth on its own axis
cause the movement of

these waves on the globe's
surface. The coastline
stops the movement of the
water. At that moment, an
observer standing on the
coast would confirm an
elevation in the water lev-
el. Several hours later,
when the moon continues
on its journey, the sea
returns to its original level.
The time of day that this
happens depends on when
the moon passes overhead,
thus the time varies from
day to day.

A transect is straight line
placed on the ground along
which ecological measure-
ments are taken. If ecolo-
gists wanted to sample the
diversity of organisms in
the marine park, for exam-
ple, they would place a
number of transects per-
pendicular to the shore and
take samples at predeter-
mined interval lengths.
The ecologists then move
along the line with a yard-
stick to take their measure-
ments. Thus they can
count the number of organ-
isms (coral, shells,
sponges, etc.) found in any
given area. In Saint
Barthelemy, two transects
200 feet long are installed
permanently, near the
islands of Pain de Sucre
and Coco. Other tempo-
rary transects have been
put in place as well to
count the conch population
in sea grass beds. The
results are compared from
one year to another, allow-
ing an ongoing survey of
life along the reefs.

From February 23 to
March 1st, the work
of Illya Kagan can be
seen in the exhibit, Vision
of the Island, at Porta 34
Gallery in Gustavia. Based
in Nantucket, this painter
(with roots in the Ukraine)
has been coming to Saint-
Barth for 35 years, since he
was just six years old. One
thing that is special about
these oil-on-linen paintings
is the wonderful use
light- or lack thereof for
those painted after the sun
has set- that emanates from
them. There is nothing sur-
prising about that; when
asked what inspired him in
Saint Barth, Kagan
answered, "the variations
in the light, and the colors
of the water. Compared to
the monochromatic green,
or white in the winter, of
Nantucket, to come here,

even for a visiting painter
like myself, is like a new
awakening." Between his
visits to Saint Barth, Illya
Kagan splits his time
between his home base in
Nantucket, and all "the
great spots" in the world
where he is inspired to
paint. His work is "alive"
and he always works "in
the fresh air," looking at
the landscape he is paint-
ing. He has also painted
extensively in Nantucket,
New York, Aspen, Tuscany,
and the South of France,
where he followed the trail
of the great Fauvist
painters, Van Gogh and
Cezanne, whose strong
influence can be felt in
Kagan's work. Vision of the
Island is Kagan's sixth
exhibit in Saint Barth, with
a reception on Friday, Feb-
ruary 23 from 6:00-9:00pm.

* Puzzle Gat
There's no math involved. The grid has numbers, but noth-
ing has to add up to anything else. You solve the puzzle
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
all there is to it.

I Ashtrays on beaches

Founded in 1996,
SubProtect is a
non-profit organza-
tion dedicated to
the protection of the
environment and
the underwater sea
beds. Last year,
they provide "Ash-
trays on the Beach-
es." The idea is to
provide the installa-
tion of cans-as-ash-
trays at the entrance
to the beaches so
that smokers can



use the cans to col-
lect 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!
