New Taxes


True or False


Rumors are rife about new taxes
passed by the COM of Saint
Barth, which put its on fiscal code
into effect as of January 1, 2008.
A quick summary (not at all
exhaustive but covers the main
points) gives an idea of what's
true and what's false.


TRUE

- Yes, since January 1, visitors to
the island must pay a head tax of
5% per night on all lodging,
charged directly by their hotel, villa,
or apartment.

- Also since
January 1, all
vehicles must
pay a tax
based on a oonso
French system
of fiscal horsepow-
er, from 30 euros a year
for small two-wheel vehicles to
3,000 euros a year for vehicles
between 3.5 and 14 tons.

- Import duty, a tax on i' c llliinii
that is imported to Saint Barth, has
increased by 1%, from 4% to 5%
and along with it, local prices are
bound to rise as well.


- Businesses of all sorts, regardless
of their judicial status, are now sub-
ject to an annual contribution with a
base fee of 300 euros plus 100
euros per employee, with a ceiling
of 5000 euros.

- Capital gains tax still exists. The
percentage has even increased from
16% to 25%, but which decreases
after a certain number of years. This
tax is now part of the budget of the
COM.


FALSE

- A 5% tax on all restaurant meals.
No, the COM has not created a
restaurant tax.

- Income tax. At least partially
false: the overall idea is that those
who have lived in Saint Barth for
more than five years are exonerated
from income tax on all revenue gen-
erated in Saint Barth. Yet they are
still taxed on revenue from holdings
in France, for example. Those who
have lived here for less than five
years are still required to pay all
French taxes, including income tax,
no matter where they earn their
money.

Easy On The Ears

24th St Barth Music Festival Gets Off

To A Smooth Start


he big question is: why weren't
people beating down the doors to
get in? The first concert for the
24th annual St. Barth Music Festival,
which opened on Friday, January 11, fea-
tured the Miro Quartet, which is consid-
ered one of the best string quartets in the
world right now. Its members-Daniel
Ching (violin), Josh Gindele (cello), John
Largess (viola), and Sandy Yamamoto
(violon) are all superb players, it goes
without saying. They opened with
Beethoven's String Quartet Opus 18, No.
4, then moved on to a one movement
piece, A Way A Lone, by Japanese com-
poser Toru Takemitsu (1930-1996). John
Largess introduced the piece, saying that
Takemitsu was inspired by the impres-
sionist music of French composer Claude
Debussy, and to round out the concert, the
quartet played Debussy's String Quartet
in G minor, opus 10. The Debussy was
dreamlike, with waves of music envelop-
ing the Catholic Church in Gustavia,
while the Takemitsu was a little more jar-
ring in an avant-garde manner, yet the
Debussy influence could be heard. Next
month the Miro will be performing these
works with the Japanese violinist, Midori,
at Lincoln Center in New York City. How
lucky were we to hear them here in the
informal setting of the Saint Barth Music
Festival? Perhaps the festival needs to do
more grass roots audience development to
fill the house? It would have been great to
see every seat filled and people standing
in the back (yes, the Catholic Church is
larger than the Anglican Church, but
still...The Miro Quartet should draw a
full house...). The second concert was at
Zion Garden, featured a mixed bag of
performances: first up were the Suzuki
violon students from Saint Barth Harmo-
ny, in their annual recital during the festi-
val (usually held on a Sunday afternoon at
the Anglican Church...), then a new addi-
tion to the festival roster, Hawaiian musi-
cians, Makana, a young, but talented
Slack Key guitarist, and finally NYCO,
the rock band led by Ted Atkatz, former
principal percussionist with the Chicago
Symphony. Maybe it was the rain on oth-


Maestro Steven Mercurio in Saint Barth
to conduct The Girl Of The Golden West
for the St. Barth Music Festival

er parts of the island (Zion Garden stayed
dry by some divine intervention...), but
once again the concert seems less well
attended than last year. Or perhaps the
change in dates was an issue, with the fes-
tival beginning two weeks earlier this
year than last. But by Tuesday night, at
the second chamber music concert, the
Catholic Church was fuller and the appre-
ciate audience was treated to the Miro
Quartet once again, this time playing
(with great finesse) the presto movement
from Schubert's "Death And The Maid-
en," then were joined by Brian Lewis on
violin, Owen Young on cello, Josefina
Vergara on violin, and Richard Young
(viola) for a spirited Mendelssohn octet.
The Miro also played Happy Birthday (on
Tuesday for Susan Nimoy) with various
variations by their "I! riii I,," from Bach to
Wagner, a flourish with great musical wit
and humor. With an orchestral concert, an
evening of singing with Jane Thorgren,
David Small, and John Novacek, plus the
Chorale des Bons Choeurs, a piano
recital, and the John Ellis Quintet on the
roster through January 23, the St. Barth
Music Festival has a lot to offer...


Tickets are also available at
the door to the concert every
evening. No reserved seating.

Drugs, violence:

The gendarmes stress prevention.


Jean-Marie Th6venet
and Fabrice Bove,
two gendarmes from
the brigade against juve-
nile delinquency visited
the island's schools last
week to address the stu-
dents about the issues of
drugs and violence, but
also about their rights. On
Thursday and Friday
morning they met with
students at the Mireille
Choisy junior high, then
on Thursday afternoon
they met with younger
students at the elementary
school in Colombier
where the classes were
very attentive. The offi-
cers remained at each
school for an hour-and-a-


half, discussing various
problems such as vio-
lence, bullying, theft, and
drugs with the students.
Their goal was to inform
the students how to
respond the day they find
themselves face-to-face
with a schoolyard bully,
an adult who acts inap-
propriately, of if drugs or
alcohol is offered to
them. They also referred
to the rights of minors
and how they are treated
if they commit a crime.
And yes, a minor can be
sent to prison. And yes,
they were told they
should denounce an adult
who approaches them
sexually, even if it is


someone in their family.
"It is important to tell the
students that solidarity
has its limits, that it is
better to break their
silence and speak to a
competent adult when the
situation is serious, espe-
cially if they are con-
fronted by another stu-
dent who demands their
money or their belong-
ings," said Th6venet. The
gendarmes also felt that
the use of drugs, both
legal and illegal, is too
accepted as common-


place in Saint Barth.
According to Th6venet,
approximately 20% of
the young people on the
island might find them-
selves in difficultly vis-a-
vis illegal substances in
the near future, ranging
from marijuana to alcohol.
"Last year, we noticed that
several students in the ele-
mentary school were
already drinking alcohol
two or three times a week,
often with their parents'
blessing."

The Sculptural Art of Dave Stevenson


Dave Stevenson is
not an artist to be
taken lightly. Even
though his work has a
whimsical side-from
bronze dogs called Poodle
Rat and Scratch to a silver
ring of an iguana-he has
also designed jewelry with a
cause. For example, he
designed a bracelet called
Inspiration, and 40% of the
proceeds from its sale bene-
fit Parkinson's disease
research. "I am friendly with
Marlene Kahan, the execu-
tive director of the Ameri-
can Society of Magazine
Publishers. She was diag-
nosed with the disease three
years ago, and we decided
to do -iiiuchih;I together,"
says Stevenson, back in
Saint Barth for his now
annual winter show-open-
ing reception January 19,

from 6-9pm-at Les Arti-
sans in Gustavia, where his
collection ranges from
bronze sculptures to
freeform sculptural jewelry
in sterling silver and 18K
gold. Some of the pieces do
have a recognizable shape,
such as outline of a horse in
sterling silver that Donald
Tofias, owner of the 76'
sailboat, Wild Horses, was
wearing for the New Year's
Eve Regatta this year.
The Inspiration bracelet has
been a real success story,
with items in People, Sev-
enteen, and Redbook maga-
zines directing people to
Stevenson's website
(w w v. i l i ,i ,irn ..',
"We have raised almost
$10,000," says Stevenson,
who has sold over 133 of
the bracelets, and now
makes both a men's and
women's version in sterling
as well as a more expensive
one in 18K gold. "We got
the most hits from People,"


Artist Dave Stevenson at
Les Artisans with one of
his bronze sculptures and
sculptural silverjewelry,
including an iguana ring.
he admits, noting that a lot
of older clients bought them
in memory of a spouse who
had died of the disease, but
younger folks purchased
them as well. "I got a lot of
very personal emails," he
says, "from people telling
me how much the bracelet
means to them."
Another new piece is the
men's silver cuff bracelet
called Aix (although the
artist admits he's never been
to the south of France...)
and in the 18K gold collec-
tion there is Puck, a
freeform pendant set with
gemstones to be worn as a
pendant. "It's based on the
form of a large wire sculp-
ture I designed for choreog-
rapher Cheronne Wong for
a piece in Seattle last Sep-
tember," Stevenson notes.
"The idea is based on char-
acter in Shakespeare and the
piece is rather playful." One
of his favorite sculptures is
called Toy, a 20"-high
bronze- with a colorful
patina- on a stone base.
"The woman who did the
patina in Italy is the same
that did the patina on the
recreation of Leonardo da
Vinci's large horse sculp-
ture," the artist explains.
While he is .'j\ ii~ i his
time in Saint Barth, his
work continues to make
waves: "In Los Angeles, a
stylist team called MAUDE
used some of my pieces for
a shoot for Flaunt maga-
zine. "I gave them a choice
of 20 or 30 pieces," he says.
Now he just has to wait and
see what they selected!

Classic Transat To Arrive In Gustavia

Late December 2008


Up to 35 traditional sail-
boats that set sail from
Douarnenez next August
17 should reach Gustavia
one week before Christ-
mas as part of an unusual
transatlantic race.

So far there are 29 classic or
traditional sailboats enrolled
to participate in the Transat
Classique Lagass6, which
will set sail from
Douamenez (a French port
in Brittany) on August 17,
2008 with an arrival
planned in Saint Barth6le-
my a few days before
Christmas, following a stop
in Agadir (Morocco).
Organized by Loic Blanken,
in partnership with the
Canadian telecommunica-
tions and secure radio


group, Lagass6, this race is
open to all sailboats chris-
tened before December 31,
1975, but recent sailboats
built in the traditional style
are also allowed.
Among the boats that will
be participating there are
several designed by Spark-
man and Stephens, Her-
reschoff, Cornu, Auzepy
Brenneur, and Carter, all
leading naval architects of
the period. The oldest boat
is the 46' Herreschoff gaff-
rigged Mismosa III, chris-
tened in Bristol in 1903,
and the newest is the mag-
nificent 65' neo-classic
sloop Faiaoahe, designed
by Ribadeau-Dumas and
launched in 2006. The total
number of boats is limited
to 35; all pleasure boats as

the race is not for commer-
cial vessels. The boats will'
leave Agadir on November
28 and the arrival in Saint
Barth is expected between
December 14 and 18, with
an around-the-island
parade planned for Decem-
ber 22, the day before the
awards ceremony.
In a letter to the race organ-
izers, Bruno Magras indi-
cated that this Classic
Regatta fits perfectly within
the goals of Saint Barth and
assured them that the island
will do its best in terms of
local organization. "To wel-
come a flotilla of traditional
sailboats to the small Port of
Gustavia at the height of the
tourist season, at the exact
moment when the world's
most beautiful mega-yahcts
and sailboats sail in and out
of the port, will not be an
easy thing. These traditional
boats are true works of art,
each one more beautiful
than the next, whose history
is closely linked to great


races and celebrated sailors,
and we want to offer them
the honor they deserve,"
says the president of the
COM. Port director Bruno
Gr6aux agrees that it will
not be easy to find room for
all these beautiful boats
right at the height of the
holidays. A few berths at the
dock will be reserved for
the Classic Transat, but
most of the boats will
anchor out in the harbor of
Gustavia. The organizers
selected December for the
arrival date so that the
friends and families of the
owners could join them
aboard the boats during
their Christmas vacations.

Richard Weledniger, DDS


If it's January, it must
be time for Richard
Weledniger
(www.smiles4ever.com) to
return to Saint Barth.
Actually he comes to the
island more than once a
year, but for the past 12
years he has been here
every winter for the Saint
Barth Dental Association
(W W ". |li',ll|lInkldrI l.1 L-, 1)
conference organized by
David Grodberg and
Francois Chlous. A high-
tech dentist based on Long
Island (New York), Weled-
niger came to St Barth for
the first time in 1983. "It
was a fluke," he says. "My
wife Betty's cousin is a
travel agent and we made


a trip to Anguilla, St. Mar-
tin, St. Barth, and Antigua.
The minute we got to
Antigua, we came back to
St. Barth." And their love
affair with St. Barth had
begun!
During one trip to the
island, about 20 years ago,
Weledniger ran into David
Grodberg at the airport and
their developed a friend-
ship. Today, Weledniger
donates his high-tech serv-
ices to the Saint Barth
Dental Association, not as
a dentist, but rather as the
designer of their website-
- ..n'ih;ing he does for oth-
er businesses as well. He
is also a shutterbug and

tal D300 camera,
taking pictures as a
very serious hobby,
with his photos lin-
ing the walls of his
dental office.
In terms of his
career, he practices
general dentistry,
specializing in cos-
metic, reconstruc-
tive, and family
practice. A 1972
graduate of New York
University College of
Dentistry, he currently
teaches there and at Stony
Brook School of Medi-
cine. In addition, he serves
on various forensic units
on a national level and
consults with several med-
ical examiners offices.
This aspect of his profes-
sional life took him to
Ground Zero right after
9/11 where he was part of
a core group of volunteer
dentists doing forensic
identification of victims.
"This continued from the
first day through June
2002," he recalls. He was
also involved in forensic
identification after the
crash of American Airlines
flight 587 in the New York
City borough of Queens.
"Some dentists went to
New Orleans after Katri-
na," he points out, noting


'4'
S


that you can identify
someone even from a
small fragment of a tooth.
"I am passionate about
what I do," Weledniger
says. He also seems to be
passionate about Saint
Barth, and two years ago,
for his 60th birthday, he
had a party with 26 mem-
bers of his family on the
island, including his par-
ents who were 94 at the
time (and are now 96).
"What's not to like about
Saint Barth," he asks, sit-
ting with Betty on the deck
of a beautiful rental villa
in Pointe Milou. "I've
gotten to know a lot of
people here," says Weled-
niger. "It makes it a spe-
cial place. And you can
really be yourself here....
Even better than yourself!"
