Anne Dentel, New President


of Saint Barth Hotel Association


WEEKLY KICKS

OFF FIFTH

SEASON!
Here we are again at
the beginning of ano-
ther winter season, and
we are happy to be
back on the scene with
the second issue of the
St. Barth Weekly, now
in its fifth year. Whe-
ther you come to the
island frequently or are
a first-time visitor, we
hope you'll enjoy The
Saint Barth Weekly, the
baby brother of the
Journal de Saint Barth,
our weekly French
newspaper. An English
language publication,
The Weekly covers the
island from all angles,
allowing you to keep
your finger on the pulse
of local politics, news,
arts, and cultural
events.
The Weekly is free and
comes out every Friday
from November
through the end of July.
Pick up a copy at your
hotel, at the tourist
office in Gustavia, or at
numerous restaurants
and boutiques.
Please feel free to offer
your suggestions about
things you'd like to see
in The Weekly, and
once you leave the
island you can stay in
touch by down-loading
The Weekly's electronic
version at
www.stbarthweekly.com


Anne Dentel has taken over the presi-
dency of the Saint Barth Hotel
Association, taking the reins from
Marithe Weber, director of the Tropical
Hotel. Weber is now the vice-president in
charge of tourism on the island's executive
council. Director of sales and marketing for
Sibarth, Dentel hopes to increase the size of
the association, which currently has 20
members. During a recent interview with
the Journal de Saint Barth, Anne Dentel
expressed her point of view regarding the
euro/dollar exchange rate. The young presi-
dent feels that the weakness of the dollar to
the euro will not be felt immediately in
terms of the number of visitors to Saint
Barth this year (estimated at the same level
as last year) as most of the housing costs
were paid in dollars or in advance of the
dollar's recent decline. On the other hand,
she feels that spending on the island might
be reduced, as the buying power of the dol-
lar has been lowered. Hotels and villa own-
ers are more worried about next summer,
the low season, for which reservations have
not yet been made. Without discussing indi-
vidual prices, Dentel would like to create
inventive packages, either all-inclusive or
pre-paid, which would give tourists more
stability during a trip to the island. The
association and its president hope to
smooth out other difficulties as well. To
begin with, the problems of getting to Saint
Barth by way of Juliana airport in Saint
Martin: "passengers coming from North
America have to go through immigration
and customs, check in and go through secu-
rity, when they are arriving from secure
American airports. In fact, passengers com-
ing on the flight that arrives after 4:00pm
from JFK to SXM basically don't have


.fw









much chance to catch a flight to Saint
Barth. They either have to wait until the
next morning or take a boat. To avoid his,
we are arguing for a simpler transit for pas-
sengers coming from the USA, as is the
case for those coming from Europe. We
have asked the president of the island coun-
cil, Bruno Magras, to discuss this with the
Dutch authorities." Other problems such as
parking and traffic jams on the island are
also on the association's to-do list, along
with the problem of electricity on the
island, and safety-one of the things Dentel
thinks is a big plus for Saint Barth, along
with its fine French cuisine, beautiful
beaches, and duty-free shopping.
But the most important issue for hotels and
villa owners at the moment is the new 5%
bed tax that the new Overseas Collectivity
(COM) has put into place as of January 1,
2008. All tourists on the island must pay
this tax, including those who made their
reservations before that date.

THE COLONY PROJECT:
IN CELEBRATE THE PAST
Architect Fredrik Pettersson
and visual artist Fredrik
Helander worked in collabora-
tion with Skasllskapet last
August to organize the exhibi-
tion entitled "The Colony Pro-
ject," which was dedicated to
Sweden's colonial past, which
means Saint Barth. By construc-
ting a miniature version of a tra-
ditional 19th-century Saint
Barth "case" or cottage on one
of the small islands at the open
air museum in Stockholm, the
Skansen, their goal was to allow
visitors to discover a period in
Swedish history that a majority
of the population knows nothing
about. And for a good reason:
even though there are many
people who say that slavery
never existed in Saint Barth, in
Sweden the island doesn't even
appear in the history books, as it
was strongly linked to a history
with slavery, something the Swe-
des abhor.
According to Roger Richter, this
small cottage, in addition to
information as well as books,
which are sold each Sunday
during the exhibit will allow for
promoting the Swedish links
between Sweden and Saint
Barth. This exhibit, which
openly dealt with the question of
slavery,was covered in several
national newspapers. And in
Saint Barth? Richard LUd&e is
still fighting for October 9 to be
recognized as the day that the
abolition of slavery is celebrated.
For the time being, his requests
have remained unfulfilled.

or the past eight years,
John McGinn and his
friends have come to
Saint Barth for Thanksgiving
week. Last year, as they
walked along the beach in
Grand Fond, two of them
who were struck by how
much refuse washed up from
the sea promised to come
back and help clean it up. So
on Thursday, November 22
from llam to 1pm, under the
guise of giving thanks for
what life has given them,
John and his seven friends-
who hail from New York and
Ohio-put on their work
gloves, set out with big
garbage bags they brought
from the United States, and
proceeded to clean the beach
in Grand Fond. A woman
who was out walking joined
in the effort. They filled four


large bags : plastic bottles, lids, shoes and
sandals ( ) and plastic rope
pieces that had washed up
onto the beach. It seems that
that si a port of the island that
captures the most of this
unfortunate <> of the
sea>>, says John McGinn.
< to make a small contribution
to maintain the amazing beau-
ty of St Barts, an island we
love>>. In addition to the beach
clean up, the group had a
lovely hike along the path
between the sea and the
Morne Rouge at Grand Fond
and got together that evening
to enjoy a Thanksgiving din-
ner served in one of the villas
that the group rents every
year. Hats off, thanks, and
bravo for the good work!

Through December 75, 2007
Borderline: an exhibit that questions our relationship with


orderline is the name of an
exhibit organized by to b.art in
its gallery in Gustavia as well
as on the walls of the Tom Beach
Hotel, showcasing the work of artist
Jeanne Susplugas in Saint Barth
through December 15. Susplugas was
always aware of the role medicines
play, first through her family environ-
ment (a family of pharmacists) and
also through sickness (serious poison-
ing), so it is not just by chance that
medicine is a recurring theme in her
work. In the exhibit, Borderline, the
33-year-old artist asks us to examine
our own relationship to medicine.


Tempting or dangerous, neces-
sary or dependent-the question
in Borderline is examined
through the use of video, installa- '-
tions, photos, and drawings. Sus-
plugas' work has been seen
around the world, and she is rep-
resented by the Florence Lynch
Gallery in New York, the Mizu-
ma Art Gallery in Tokyo, and by
the Charles de Jonghe Gallery in
Brussels. In 2007, she also had
shows at the Wyspa Institut of
Art de Gdansk (Poland), at Mag- J
acin in Belgrade, and most an
recently at the FIAC in Paris.

Golf Simulator Allows Play On a Green

in Saint Barth!


Installed at the Golf
Center in Grand Cul
de Sac, the new golf
simulator makes it
possible to play on a
green, Virtual but real-
istic. An interview with
Philippe, president of
the golfers association
of Saint Barth:

Saint Barth Weekly:
Why install a golf
simulator?
Philippe: To live in Saint
Barth and play golf is very
difficult. The topology of
the island makes it impossi-
ble, at least for now, to have
a real course. Which is too
bad, since if we had a golf
course, the tourist season
would not last four months,

money to spend. So in able
to satisfy those who live on
the island and want to play
golf, as well as the tourists
who are golf fans, we instal-
led the driving range in
Grand Cul de Sac several
years ago, and added the
fabulous GOLFOTRON
simulator this year.

Saint Barth Weekly:
How does it work?
Philippe: This machine was
designed to allow amateur
and professional golf
players to play in real
conditions when the wea-
ther does not let them play
outdoors. All golf options
are possible, and the simula-


tor offers more
than 40 different
courses, including
the famous "Old
St Andrews.". It
also has five put-
ting greens and
several driving
ranges. You can
play the course of
your choice, as
well as organize
golf tournaments
and putting or dri-
ving competi-
tions. The results
and the definition
are quite surpri-
sing. Choose your
club and a ball,
and hit it on the
screen in the direction of the
fairway.... You will see you
ball fly where you send it.
It's surprisingly realistic.

Saint Barth Weekly:
Who can play and when?
Philippe: All players who
know how to hold a golf
club can play. For those
who do not know how, we
will teach them, every day,
except Monday, from 2pm
to 6:30pm and from 9am to
midnight. At night, it's even
better.

Happy Thanksgiving! For the past seven years, John McGinn
and his friends have come to Saint Barth for Thanksgiving week
After cleaning up the beach in Grand Fond, they gathered for a
traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner.


French military from the 41st RIMA (Marine Infantry Regiment)
based in Camp Dugommier in Jarry, Guadeloupe "invaded"
Saint Barth this week They arrived last Monday on the Voyager
ferry, as seen in our photo, and remained in Saint Barth until
Friday, engaged in various exercises and maneuvers around the
island They were housed in the dorms in Lorient usually used
for visiting sports teams.


Jean-Pierre Hennequet, owner of GalerieAsie, orga-
nized a retrospective of the work of artist Lionel Bigu-
glia last week at Galerie Porta 34. Born in Toulon into
a Corsicanfamily, this modern painter notes that his
inspiration comes from the world that surrounds him,
as seen through a decidedly urban filter. His work bor-
rows from street art, from the colors ofAfrica, and
contemporary symbolism Details about the artist are

he baby tortoise
found entangled on
the beach of Grand
Cul de Sac on Monday,
November 19, is a lucky
little animal. Treated by Dr.
Maille's veterinary clinic in
Lorient, the tortoise was
put back into the ocean at
the end of the week. Found
by the staff of the Sereno
hotel as they were cleaning
the beach, the baby tortoise
was tangled in a bed of
seaweed and visibly very
tired. Not knowing what to
do, they called the marine
park: "Only 1% of all baby
tortoises ever reach maturi-
ty. This baby has really had
a second chance," Fran-
ciane Le Quellec, director
of the marine park. "The


examination by the veteri-
narian confirmed that the
animal did not have any
fractures or bites," she
notes. Its state of exhaus-
tion was treated by a
regime of vitamins! Once it
was back in good shape, it
was kept in a large basin of
water for a few days then
released into a small bay.
Given its size, just about
two inches long, the baby
was born no longer than a
week before its rescue. "In
terms of water currents, it
was probably born on a
beach facing east or on a
nearby little island," says
Le Quellec. Back in the
ocean, the baby tortoise
most likely hid on a bed of
seaweed once again to

avoid being eaten by a
predator. It would live that
way until old enough to hit
the open seas in two or
three years. "Later, when it
has grown to five or six
inches long, and has


become an adult, it can live
along the reefs," adds Le
Quellec. It is much later,
between the ages of 20 and
25, that a tortoise reaches
sexual maturity.


Hurricane Season Now

Closed
hurricane season in the North Atlantic closed offi-
cially on Friday, November 30. This year's season
opened early, on May 9, with the formation of
Andrea, the first of 14 major tropical storms. Of these 14
"named" storms, six evolved into hurricanes, and two-
Dean and Felix-reached category 5 status. Yet it was
Noel, the last category 1 hurricane to form, which was the
deadliest, causing at least 148 deaths, primarily in Haiti,
due to torrential rains that caused mudslides and flooding.
The number of 14 storms this year was average for the past
12 years but less than the pre-season predictions made by
meteorologists at the University of Colorado. They estimat-
ed that there would be 15 to 17 major storms during the
2007 season, which they considered would be more active
than the average from 1950-2000. Saint Barth has not been
placed on a hurricane alert since hurricane Debby in 2000.
Keep your fingers crossed that this continues to be the case!
