Economic, Social, and Cultural Council

Installed
EML i A M IL IIll


After the election of
the Territorial
Council, its presi-
dent, and executive coun-
cil,l the fourth official insti-
tution of the Collectivity-
the Economic, Social, and
Cultural Council-was
installed on Tuesday,
December 18. The council,
known by the acronym
CESC, has 15 members
representing non-profit
associations or groups of
associations from the eco-
nomic sector, which has
seven members, while five
other seats are reserved for
those in the cultural and
social welfare sector. The
three remaining places
belong to a group of"quali-


fled individuals."
Fourteen of the 15 mem-
bers (the last seat will be
assigned after the creation
of a local chamber of com-
merce and industry) were
present at the installation
ceremony at the Hotel de la
Collectivite. Prefect
Dominique Lacroix
presided over the event, in
the presence of the Collec-
tivity's president, Bruno
Magras, its executive coun-
cil, and a small number of
guests who could be count-
ed on one hand.
Once the installation was
complete, the CESC held
its first meeting, whose
order of business was elect-
ing a board and a president.

Jean-Marc Greaux, repre-
sentative of the Economic
Liaison Committee (CLE)
was elected president in the
first round of voting, with
10 votes, against 4 votes
for Didier Bensa, who rep-
resents the island's restau-
rateurs. The board includes:
Thierry Balzame, first vice-
president representing the


economic sector; Herve
Brin, second vice-presi-
dent, from the group of
qualified individuals;
Jacques Questel, treasurer,
representing the neighbor-
hood sports and cultural
associations; Angele Beal,
secretary, representing
AJOE, from the cultural
and social sector.


WHAT IS THE ROLE OF THE CESC?
Its role, as defined by the specific laws defining the
Overseas Collectivity of Saint Barthdlemy, consists of
providing opinions-either on its own initiative, at the
request of the territorial council, or the prefect-on all
decisions that effect the infrastructure and permanent
development of Saint Barth, as well as for the overall
budget for the Collectivity. It is also responsible, still in
an advisory capacity, to examine all decisions made by
the territorial council concerning the economic, cultu-
ral, and social welfare aspects of the island.

C contemporary Amer-

Prince is debuting a
new body of work at the
luxury Eden Rock Hotel,
recently named the best
hotel in the Caribbean by
the readers of Conde Nast
Traveler. In conjunction
with the renowned
Gagosian Gallery, the artist
will preview sixteen new
paintings as part of his
"Eden Rock" series at the
Eden Rock Hotel Gallery,
from December 27, 2007
to february 28, 2008. The
Eden Rock series is essen-

People Watch


Charles Darden


If you ever see the
Anglican Church in
Gustavia swaying from
side to side or hear rousing
gospel songs escaping
through the windows, then
music director Charles Dar-
den can't be very far. The
church might not actually
sway, but it might well with


the power of the
music Darden
creates with the
Chorale des Bons
Choeurs, the
island's local
choir. He directs
the choir and
serves as musical
director for the
church-two
tasks which are
separate entities
as he notes.
"I've been coming to St.
Barth for 10 years," says
Darden, who lives on the
island approximately five
months every year. For sev-
en years, he played piano
and sang at the Guanahani
hotel, but gave up that side
of his career while in Saint
Barth to dedicate himself to


MERRY CHRISTMAS I!!

his volunteer work with the
choir and the church. "I felt
it was important to develop
other interests on the
island," he says, noting that
he took over the choir after
it had been going for a few
years, and his work with
them includes producing the
Hymn of Saint Barthelemy
and making a CD with
them. He considers himself
"retired" when on the island
now, but he seems to be
constantly busy.
Training as a pianist and
conductor, Darden has an
extensive musical back-
ground, having served as
assistant conductor for the
Cleveland Orchestra and
San Francisco Symphony,
music director for the Bom-
bay Philharmonic, and for
several dance companies
including Ballet Rambert in
London and NYC's Dance
Theatre of Harlem. Working
with amateur singers in
Saint Barth, Darden says, "I
train them like I was
trained, with high musical
standards. And we have a
lot of rehearsals."
How did he interest primari-
ly French singers in Ameri-
can spirituals? "They love
it, they asked for it," he
says. "I grew up in Berke-
ley, California, in a church
with lots of spirituals. It's
very natural for me."
For many summers, when
away from Saint Barth,
Darden played the piano for
elite clients at parties in the
Hamptons, but this past
summer he took on a new
task. "I served as musical
director on a cruise ship, the
Holland America Nor-
daam," he notes. "We sailed
from Seattle to Alaska for
ten weeks, then went to


Costa Rica and Guatemala,
sailing through the Panama
Canal. I was responsible for
17 musicians aboard, from
cocktail musicians to a
string quartet, and I played
piano with a dance band. At
the end of the summer they
said I could go on any ship,
any time."
On Monday, December 24,
Darden will lead the choir
in Handel's Hallelujah Cho-
rus as part of the Christmas
Eve service at the Anglican
Church, and he is planning
for a program shared with
soprano Jane Thorngren
during the St. Barth Music
Festival in January (the pro-
gram includes Vivaldi,
Leonard Bernstein, some
French pieces, and some
Gospel). As noted in The
Weekly on December 14,
Darden also plans to take
the choir to New York City
for a series of concerts in
the spring.
His own musical tastes are
very eclectic and varied,
although he admits that he
really enjoys singing and
playing George Gershwin
on the piano. He also walks
on the island an hour a day
for exercise and enjoys
writing about his life expe-
riences; he is currently
writing about his adventure
as musical director on a
cruise ship.
The music at the Anglican
Church adds a big plus to
the church service. "It's
been said that when you are
singing you're actually
praying twice," says Dard-
en. "Music is another way
of meditating; it's another
language to be closer to the
source."

separated
from each other, so
they maintained their own
individual traditions. The
Miaos are the best well
known of these groups,"
explains Hennequet. "The
objects in this exhibit date
from the early/mid-19th
century to the early/mid-
20th century."
Large silver necklaces,


lI ca l-_




and i!n-
St a g e
tage
clothing-from skirts to
kimono-style jackets-are
included in the collection.
"The fabrics are all hand-
dyed and woven, using nat-
ural dyes, and hand-
embroidered in silk," says
Hennequet. The embroi-
dery is incredibly ornate in
many cases, with elaborate
designs of flowers, for
example, that take many
months, if not years to
complete.

FOR YOUNG
GIRLS
"All of these objects are
passed down from genera-
tion to generation and
make up the dowry for the
young girls," Hennequet
notes, explaining that the
mating ritual in these
remote areas
includes the boy
whistling tunes to
attract the attention
of a pretty girl.
Hennequet got the
idea for the exhibit
when he attended a
tribal arts show in
NYC and met
Xavier Monnet, a
specialized dealer
in Chinese art.
They thought it
would make sense
to show a collec-


tion of eth-
nic Chinese treas-
ures in Saint
Barth at the end of
l ,iC car. "The work in the

10i1da'. Lut will increase as
these become lost arts.
"People don't take the time
to make things like this
today. Many of these
pieces have never been
seen outside of China," he
says.
The necklaces are extreme-
ly large, with multiple lay-
ers of hand-tooled silver
covering the next and
upper torso; some are also
very heavy, and are more
for ornamentation on spe-
cial occasions than every-
day wear. "Not many mod-
ern women can wear a
necklace like these but the
work is extraordinary,"
Hennequet points out.
"Each one is truly a work of
art."

St. Barth serves as the
location for a televised
mini-series entitled "Passport
to the Internet," which started
shooting in Saint Barth on
Thursday, December 20. Pro-
duced by Rony Laine and
Production des Iles, there
will be ten 13-minute
episodes of this documen-
tary/fiction film designed for
non-users of the Internet who
would like to learn how to
use it. "The number of sites
and users keeps multiplying.
The goal of this series is to
familiarize them with the
Internet as a tool, by visually
demonstrating how to navi-
gate successfully." explains
Laine. To do this, the sce-
nario includes a fictional
script- a grandfather and his
granddaughter in the French
Antilles who decide to get
news about family members


who are far away geographi-
cally-and a documentary
section in which an Internet
expert explains and demon-
strates how to proceed. "The
series should be aired in early
2008 on public as well as pri-
vate stations in the four over-
seas departments" adds
Laine. In fact, the series will
be shoot in Saint Barth but
the island will not play a
major role: "We needed a
location and actors -all
amateur-that represent the
entire French West Indies,"
Laine explains. The location
is the Meteo France weather
station in Gustavia. A set will
be built to transform the
upstairs for the fictional por-
tion, shot from December 21-
28. The documentary section
will be shot will be shot on
the ground floor from Janu-
ary 4-8, 2008.

Le Cesar Replaces


Terrazza
s of this
season,
Aurelia and
Christophe Cesaro,
former chef at La
Marine, have
opened a new
restaurant, Le
Cesar, in the place
of Terrazza at the
Village St. Jean.
Specializing in
seafood, their menu
includes grilled lob-
ster, skate, mahi-
mahi, yellow-fin
tuna, and a daily selection
of fish and shellfish based
on what is available.
Whether cooked on the
grill or baked in a crust of
salt (the chef's favorite),
the fish here should please
the most discriminating
palates.
Those who prefer meat
also have a wide choice


from grilled steak to duck
breast and duck confit,
veal in cream sauce, or ribs
for a local touch. Every
Friday, the restaurant also
has a BBQ with local fish,
lobster, ribs, and chicken
added to the menu.
For the interior design of
the restaurant, the young
couple opted for red and
beige to give the
room a cheerful
ambiance. On Satur-
day evenings, DJ
Guillaume Mas
livens things up.

Fishermen appeared before dawn in the port of Gustavia last Monday, at around 5am. Fourteen boats with
large protest posters stretched across the port, blocking all entries and departures from the port. At 10:30am,
when it looked like no ni. g.1i,,, ,t was f;, ll ...i.ini. they proceeded to the airport and blocked access to the
departures hall as well as the check-in counters. The action lasted until approximately 1:30pm, at which time
president Bruno Magras finally agreed to organize a im ii. ,,u his executive council. The mi img took place
at 3pm in the council chambers at the Hotel de la CollectivitW and was successful in that the port was re-ope-
ned at 5pm, after the conclusion of the mi- i.g0


As The Weekly went to press on
Thursday evening, the Territori-
al Council of Saint Barth was
scheduled to meet and discuss the appli-
cation of a reduction in fuel prices for
the island's professional fishermen who
had blocked the port of Gustavia and the
airport last Monday in protest of high
fuel prices. This reduction, if applied,
means that the fishermen would pay
1.07 euros per liter, as compared to the
1.26 euros per liter they pay today. The
new price at the pump would represent
the cost per liter paid by the Collectivity
when they buy the fuel (which is 1.1542
euros per liter) less a special tax of 8
cents/euro that would be reduced for
every liter of fuel sold to the fishermen.
If this reduced price does not entirely
meet the demands of these professionals
of the sea, who hoped to pay closer to
the 82 cents/euro per liter that their
counterparts pay in Guadeloupe, this
reduction should give the fishermen a
little breathing room in terms of budget,
and help restore peace in their relation-
ship with the Collectivity, which the
fishermen accuse of not keeping its
promise: "They always told us 'When
the fuel pump reopens at the port, your
fuel will be tax-free.' Instead, the price
for the new fuel service run by the Col-
20


lectivity (note: the new service was just
put into effect on December 4) has been
the same as at the other gas stations on
the island. Today they accuse us of not
coming to talk to them. But why didn't
the Collectivity say anything to us when
the pump was put into service? Why
didn't they make it clear if they intended
to charge a reduced price? And especial-
ly, when the Territorial Council met in
late October and discussed the price for
fuel at the new pump, why didn't they
announce the reduced price then? If their
intention was to sell tax-free fuel to the
fishermen, we would have known about
it and not had the need to demonstrate,"
explains Gilles Brin, president of the
local fishermen's association.
Bruno Magras, president of the Collec-
tivity, did not hide his bitterness after the
actions last Monday, which included
blocking the port for 12 hours and also
blocking passengers from checking in at
the airport for almost four hours: "This
wildcat strike considerably tarnished the
image of Saint Barthelemy and especial-
ly over something we could have avoid-
ed. If they had come to me, I would
have extended this proposition, which
was always our intention," says the pres-
ident. He also feels that the fishermen
make things look worse that they really


are: "They might pay the same charges
as the fishermen in Guadeloupe, but
they do not pay income tax here, and we
offered them a fish market free of
charge."
This is the first time since 1975 that such
an action blocked access to the island.

NUMEROUS DELAYS
AND CANCELLATIONS
Due to the blocking of the port of
Gustavia last Monday, maritime
connections between Saint Martin
and Saint Barth6lemy were cancelled.
According to Jean-Claude Latourne-
rie, director of the Voyager ferry ser-
vice, approximately 150 people found
themselves stuck. As for air traffic,
landing was possible so most of the
flights from Saint Martin/Sint Maar-
ten arrived as scheduled. This was
not the case with flight from Saint
Barth, as delays continued throu-
ghout the morning and some flights
were cancelled. Certain passengers
managed to get to Saint Martin in
time for their connecting flights, but
others missed their planes and had to
wait up to 48 hours to get another
flight to their final destinations, as the
flights are almost full during the
Christmas holiday period.

What is a Transect ?
Each week the Marine Park answers
a question concerning the marine envi-
ronment and environmental protection.
A transect is straight line placed on the
ground along which ecological meas-
urements are taken. If ecologists wanted
to sample the diversity of organisms in
the marine park, for example, they
would place a number of transects per-
pendicular to the shore and take sam-
ples at predetermined interval lengths.
The ecologists then move along the line
with a yardstick to take their measure-
ments. Thus they can count the number
of organisms (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. Oth-
er temporary transects have been put in
place as well to count the conch popula-
tion in sea grass beds. The results are
compared from one year to another,
allowing an ongoing survey of life
along the reefs.


Attention All Yachts: Mooring and Anchoring


The Saint Barth Marine Park would
like all sailors to know that all moor-
ings put into place in protected zones

and a permit within the protected
areas of the marine park. All jet-
skis and water skiing are totally
prohibited in the Marine Park.
Finally, please note that there are
numerous sea turtles in the entry
channel to the port of Gustavis as
well as the bay of Colmbier, and
that the speed limit of three knots
must be respected at all times!

every 3x3 box contains the digits 1 through 9."That's all
