The Collectivity In Review:

2008


The Weekly Welcomes You

Welcome to the sixth season
of The St. Barth Weekly, the
only all-English newspaper on
the island. Whether you come
to the island frequently or are
a first-time visitor, we hope

Weekly, the baby brother of
the Journal de Saint Barth,
our weekly French newspaper.
The Weekly covers the island
from all angles, allowing you
to keep your finger on the
pulse of local politics, cuisine,
arts, and cultural events.
The Weekly is free and comes
out every Friday from Novem-
ber through the end of July.
Pick up a copy at your hotel,
at the tourist office in Gusta-
via, or at numerous restau-
rants and boutiques around
the island.
Please feel free to offer your
suggestions about things
you'd like to see in The Wee-
kly, and once you leave Saint
Barth you can stay in touch
with the latest on the island
by down-loading The Wee-
kly's electronic version at
stbarthweekly.com.
Enjoy your stay!


A report issued in light
of 2009 budget consider-
ations is a goldmine of
information, including a
review of the Collectivi-
ty's activities last year.
Recap below.
According to a recent
report, the Territorial
Council met seven times
in 2008 and adopted 69
decisions, deliberations,
and laws with an average
attendance by 17 out of
19 council members. The
report also notes that the
council also held three
general commission
meetings (or closed work
sessions). Three political
science professors, Julien
Merion, Fred Reno, and
Fred Deshayes, from the
University of the Antilles
and Guyana, attended the
meeting of June 13 to
discuss the consequences
of the decision to remain
a part of Europe or not.
The second commission
met on July 15 with
Frangois Seners, on the
subject of the Environ-
mental Code, which we
learned at the last territo-
rial council meeting is no
longer a priority. Finally,
the last session on July


17, once again with
Frangois Seners, dealt
with fiscal and taxation
questions. In executing
the measures adopted by
the territorial council,
president Bruno Magras
worked on 119 decisions
concerning the police and
administration, 220 relat-
ing to territorial person-
nel, and 463 in response
to executive council
actions on urbanism. He
also accorded 260 meet-
ings to island citizens.
And the executive coun-
cil met 24 times during
2008 and made 302
decisions.

Urbanism
AndFinances,
Two Important Issues
The report also addressed
two of the most impor-
tant services of the Col-
lectivity: Urbanism, as
directed Madame Yvette
Greaux; and finances,
under the direction of Mr.
Michel Laplace. Con-
cerning urbanism, since
the local service started
up on January 1, 2008,
they have dealt with 801
dossiers. Of these, 369
were requests for build-


ing permits, 158 for
urbanism certificates,
252 for information
about urbanism, 16 were
declarations for construc-
tion, and six were for
demolition permits. As of
December 463 official
decisions had been made,
with 120 dossiers for the
right of pre-emption were
submitted to the execu-
tive council, which exer-
cised this right only once.
The final number of per-
mits issue was not
included. As for finances,
the service, which has
three full-time staff,
passed 4,066 accounting
actions, primarily verifi-
cation and validation of
commitments made by
various services of the
Collectivity. In addition,
5506 mandates were
issued for accounts
payable, grants to non-
profit associations, and
legal and extralegal
social and solidarity
actions. In addition, as it
does every year, the
financial service issued
between 600 and 800
requests to recover non-
payment of the trash col-
lection tax.

29th Edition of the Heineken Regatta

Challenging Weather Conditions Prevail


As predicted by the weather-
man, high winds and large
swells were on the agenda for
the 29th edition of the
Heineken Regatta, which took
place March 6-8 in the waters
around Saint Martin. A total of
270 boats were divided into 18
different classes, with the
crews rocked by the waves and
certainly a bit wet during the "
three days of regattas, during
which the wind gusted as high as 60
km/h (37mph) with swells from the
north up to 12 feet. Quite a few boats
reported some damage: spinnakers
exploding, mainsails ripped, broken
masts, and collisions. Of the 11 boats
in the main category, Spinnaker 1, vic-
tory went to Team Selene, a Swan 80,
with three first-place wins and one
second-place finish; in the same class,
second place went to the custom Farr
ketch, Sojana, which will also partici-
pate in the St Barth Bucket, March 27-
29. In the Spinnaker 2 class, a perfect
win for the Farr Cookson 50, Priva-
teer, which won all four regattas.

An entry from St Barth, Speedy
Nemo, Raymond Magras' Dufour 34,
took a second-place win in the Spin-
naker 5 class. The boat, with skipper

called for bad weather con-
ditions and a lot of rain

(45mph) gusted during the
night from Friday to Satur-
day, with waves cresting as
high as 9 to 12 feet, render-
ing the rough seas danger-
ous. In spite of the small
craft warnings issued by
Meteo France, a boat
washed up on the beach in
St. Jean during the night
from Saturday to Sunday.

as explained by Jocelyn Bemier, who
was part of the crew. "With winds of
50 to 60 km/h of wind and swells from
the north up to 12', conditions were
rigorous for the 29th edition of the
Heineken, which was something to
see. The first race on Fri-
day, a race around the
island, was hard for the R
nine-member crew of
Speedy Nemo. The wind
was blowing from the north
that day with gusts as high
as 60km/h and waves up to
12'. For this first regatta,
we finished first, and in
terms of damage, nothing
major except a torn spin- Spe,

day, the last day of the regatta,
ir ^ the weather was again the
same. The crew had another
good day, and Speedy Nemo
finished in third place for an overall
second class win in the Spinnaker 5
class, out of 10 boats in this group.
This was a satisfying result and good
training for the crew, with the Captain
Oliver's Regatta on the horizon in
May."

CLAUDE CHALLE

ENLIVENS THE NIGHTS

OF SAINT BARTH


After spinning the magic
of his music in clubs
around the world, Claude
Challe has finally made it
to Saint Barth. Invited to
the island by Carole Gru-
son of Carole's Places,
this famous DJ will put
on three exceptional per-
formances this month.

Born under the hot sun in
Tunisia, Claude Challe
moved to Paris with his
family at the age of three.
His interests ranged from
ancient cultures to music,
which he associated with
women.
In 1963 he opened a hair


salon and was quickly
dubbed as "the man
with the golden scis-
sors." But this future DJ
had other ambitions and
wanted to escape from
the daily grind. In 1968
he joined a hippy com-
munity in Sardinia, where
he stayed for two years,
then traveled to such
locales as Nepal, India, and
Indonesia, where his music
was influenced by spiritual
influences.
He moved back to Paris
and opened a luxury resale
shop, but music came back
into his life in 1974 when
he managed his first club,

Le Prive, a Parisian hotspot
mixing the jet set and the
underground. In 1979, his
next project was the high-
tech restaurant, Centre
Ville, with Philippe Starck.
In 1985, he started a seven-
year stretch at the famous
nightclub, Les Bains
Douches.
As king of the night, his
next stop was El Divino in
Ibiza. When he returned to
the French capital, he was
once again ahead of the
crowd in launching the new
age program, Magic, on
Radio Nova. But it was
only in 1996, with the cre-
ation of the Buddha Bar
and the record label, Chal-
l'OMusic, that Challe made
his debut as a DJ. The same
year he released his first
compilation album for Les
Bains Douches.
His music became more
and more mystical, as a
voyage to the Orient paying
tribute to the senses, to
love, to the sun... his crow-
ing touch was in 1999 with
the Buddha Bar 1 & 2
compilations, a double gold
album.
In 2001, he signed the first
artist to his label: Karmix.
But not one to rest on his


laurels, in 2002 he launched
the series, "Claude Challe
Presents," with R.E.G Pro-
ject and the album, New
Oriental. He released his
first album in 2003, "Je
nous aime.
A man who loves women
and appreciates their beau-
ty, he couldn't resist the
temptation to release
"Emmanuelle, The Private
Collection," as an homage
to the celebrated erotic film
in 2004.
The years have passed, but
Claude Challe remained
interested in the same
things. His music continues
to evolve further toward a
sense a mysticism that tries
to connect people to each
other.
As he says, "the artist helps
us realize we are all con-
nected, inter-dependant,
and in constant relationship
with the rest of the uni-
verse.

Following a soiree on
March 15 at La Plage,
Claude Challe will be at
the Ti St Barth on March
19, and at the Yacht Club
on March 20.

OPERATION "CLEAN BEACHES"


t should be obvious: the
beaches of Saint Barth,
an essential asset of the
island, must be clean. With
this in mind, the Collectivi-
ty assigned the task to a
company called Beach
Cleaner, as of December
2008. Yet so far they are
only covering the three
beaches of Saint Jean,
Gouverneur, and Lorient
for now. Is this just the
beginning?
Ecological concerns are
growing, as well as an
increased sense of hygiene.
The twenty-plus beaches of
Saint Barthelemy actually
have a lot of trash, both
visible and invisible. For
the past five years, Beach
Cleaner has been using a
machine called the Tirrenia


1003, which has three main
attributes:
A Cleaning via a system
of sifting, in three stages,
as deep as 3 to 5 inches.
A Oxygenation of the sand,


by repeatedly turning it
over, allowing the sun's rays
to help eliminate bacteria.
A Disinfection, using a
non-toxic, 90% biodegrad-
able product, which meets
European standards.


In this manner, cigarette
butts, plastic, glass, paper,
cans, food, animal feces,
and objects such as razors
(really!) are removed from
the beaches, as well as bac-
teria, parasites, fungi,
micro-organisms, and other
microscopic forms of pollu-
tion, which can often cause
dermatological or gynecol-
ogical problems.
Once a month, very
early in the morn-
ing, the compact
Tirrenia 1003, a
self-propelled and
quiet machine, does
its job on these
beaches. "The
tourists really
appreciate it," says
Pascal Vallon, the
manager of Beach
Cleaner. Including the peo-
ple who use the beach at the
Guanahani hotel, which has
opted for this kind of clean-
ing for the past five years.

Advertorial


Galerie Amahoro ofSaint Martin


"I live surrounded by gods,
spirits and ancestors..."
In spite his worldwide
celebrity, Hoyo Manuel
Mendive chose to live away
from notability and conven-
tionality, preferring rural
surroundings favorable to
the balance of his spiritual
life. His daily life is filled
with stories and legends of
the spiritual Yoruba from
western Africa, renovated
and transformed under the
authoritarian influence of
the Catholic Church in
Cuba to give birth to Sante-
ria, the popular Afro-Cuban
religion.
It is in this world of celestial
lights where everything


floats weightlessly that he
conjugates his forms and
plain colors. His human,
animal, and floral represen-
tations carry us away into
an initiation dance in which
every Orisha (divinity)
takes over the mission that
has been assigned to him by
Olodumare, Olofin and
Olorun, mystic trilogy that
represents the Supreme
Being: God.
The best-known art critics
coincide in acknowledging
Mendive as an exceptional
artist. One of them, Edward
J. Sullivan calls him "the
rebel angel" and considers
his work to be unconven-

times, provocative. His
images embody and violent-
ly transform the remains of
the African continent and
are often not attractive to
those who are looking for
the latest tendencies in the
arts world.
The notable Pierre Restany,
mastermind of the New
Realists group in 1960, and
considered to be the most
important post-war critic in
France, wrote, described
and praised Mendive's work
calling it "art of the initiat-
ed," whose codes are imme-
diately identifiable for the
viewer who is foreign to
this kind of secret. The
genius of the artist consists
in his miraculous aptitude to
create from his images and
us, the link of a visual con-
nivance, blend of premoni-
tion and fascination. This
magic art is saturated with
beauty that exalts sensations
of a primary humanity, the
osmosis with the mystery
of the profound, with the
vigilant dream. The secret
syncretism signs of the
Yoruba rites become images
of the profound spirit and
the essential life at the end
of a road covered by Men-
dive to the interior of the
Afro-Cuban alchemy. Men-
dives art is an important ele-
ment in the Caribbean
imagination because he is
already one the magnetic
fields of the black African


and Latin American
encounter. As for Mendive,
he confides in us that the
elements of the Afro-Cuban
culture are the substance
and the stimuli that allow
him to speak about death,
life, and all that can be
found in them; good, evil
and the most beautiful
moment, that in which we
become aware of everything
that exists in ourselves: "I
live with my ancestors and
my gods."
His work can be found in
the greatest museums of the
world and as part of presti-
gious private collections.
Mendive has received
numerous prizes and dis-
tinctions and was awarded
the French medal of Arts
and Humanities.
His exhibit in Saint Martin
in the Amohoro Gallery
shows his attachment to the
Afro-Caribbean culture that
informs every instant of life
on this side of the world,
throughout in the Americas.
Amahoro feels particularly
moved and proud of the
interest that this great Afro-
American artist addresses
Saint Martin.
