WELCOME!

The Saint Barth
Weekly is happy to
be back for its third
season. The Weekly
is designed for you,
to help you put your
finger on the pulse of
the local community.
Featuring an English
r6sum6 of the top
stories of our French
newspaper
"Le Journal de Saint
Barth", as well as
original articles in
English, the Saint-
Barth Weekly is the
only completely
English-language
newspaper on the
island. It comes out
every Friday from
November through
the end of July. Our
most exciting news is
that each Friday, The
Weekly is also
available on line at
Saint-Barth Online
(www.st-barths.com),
the wonderful web
site that our friends
Laurence and Peter
O'Keefe created in
1996. Thanks to
them, you can now
download every
edition of the Saint-
Barth Weekly, so that
no matter where you
are in the world, you
can stay in contact
with the island.


numerous people in
Saint Barth signed
the petition circulated
by Evasion Tropicale, an
association in Guadeloupe,
calling for the creation of a
marine mammal sanctuary in
the Caribbean during the
Whale Week organized earli-
er this spring by the island's
Marine Park. The idea for
such a sanctuary was pro-
posed by the French delega-
tion that attended the 58th
annual meeting of the Inter-
national Whaling Commis-
sion held in Saint Kitts in
mid-June. This information
was made public this week,
in a press release by the Min-
ister of Ecology and Sustain-
able Development.
According to the press
release, "this project, which
includes the waters of Guade-
loupe, Martinique, Saint
Martin, and Saint Barthelemy
under French jurisdiction,
intends to ensure the conser-
vation of the habitats for the
various species of cetaceans
present in this zone, includ-
ing several species of whales
(humpback, sperm whales,
finbacks...) and smaller mam-
mals including a variety of


dolphins, as these areas are
important for their resting,
feeding, reproducing, and
raising their young. The sanc-
tuary would create the juris-
diction for the complete pro-
tection of all species of
marine mammals in this zone
by limiting, or even prohibit-
ing, human activities that
endanger the species, with all
concerned playing a role:
local governments, elected
officials, sailors and fisher-
men, administrations, scien-
tific researchers, and organi-
zations for environmental
protection. In the meantime,
a marine park will be created.
A first meeting in Guade-
loupe, uniting all the various
partners from Guadeloupe
and Martinique, led to the
establishment of a timeline
and list of things to accom-
plish. The first phase includes
a national directive in the
French strategy for biodiver-
sity, and the plans for the
sanctuary should bring
together all of the Caribbean
countries interested by a
common desire to protect the
cetaceans....," noted the
press release.

Ouality ofSwimming
Water in 2006
Saint Barth
clearly "blue"
According to the
annual report (cre-
ated by the Direc-
tion of Health and Social
Development) on the
quality of the water at
beaches used for swim-
ming in Guadeloupe, the
waters around Saint Barth
are nice and clean. Made
public in early June, this
report is available for con-
sultation at
http://baignades.sante.gou
v.fr. In Saint Barth, water
samples were tested every
month since last October
at 13 beaches (Shell
Beach, Lorient, Anse
Marechal, Corossol, Saint
Jean, Public, Grand Cul
de Sac, Petit Cul de Sac,
Anse des Cayes, Anse des
Flamands, Anse des
Salines, Marigot, Gou-
verneur), and once again
the report indicates that
they are all in the "blue"
category, proof of good
water quality. This was
also the case in 2005.
Since 2001, the parameters
for water analysis have
been expanded to include
microbiological organisms
that can result from germs
(fecal streptococcus for
example) as well as physio-
chemical elements (pollu-
tion). Elsewhsere in Guade-
loupe, of 90 different loca-
tions tested, 13 resulted in
"green," which means ave-
rage water quality, and does
not prohibit swimming.
Two locations, one near the
town of Vieux Habitants
and Canoe-Kayak (Moule),
tested "yellow," which
means they are temporarily
polluted. In Saint Martin,
just like last year, the good
news is that all the beaches
came up "blue."










T he officers
aboard the
French
naval vessel, La
Capricieuse, col- -
lected funds *
among themselves
in order to make a
donation to the
Saint Barth SNSM
station. Last Mon-
day evening, the
youngest officer
aboard presented a check for 600 euros
to the youngest member of the SNSM
crew, 19 year-old Frantz Greaux, during
a ceremony organized on the dock near
where the rescue boat, the Contre Ami-
ral Noel, was anchored.
Saint Barth has been the "godmother" of
La Capricieuse, a P400 patrol boat, since
August 24, 1988. La Capricieuse arrived
at the dock last Sunday morning from
Fort-de-France in Martinique, where it
underwent maintenance. A cocktail
reception was held Sunday evening on


the rear deck of
the vessel. On
Monday morning,
the lieutenant of
the ship, Philippe
Vitel, welcomed
the mayor aboard
for an official vis-
it, while the public
w. as able to dis-
cover the public
S spaces and patrol
equipment during
two organized visits while the ship was
in the Port of Gustavia.
While the public was invited aboard on
Monday afternoon from 2:00-5:00pm,
the hours were changed to the morning
on Tuesday as not to conflict with the
World Cup soccer match between
France and Spain. Approximately 120
people visited the boat over the two
days. The Capricieuse left Saint Barth
on Wednesday in the direction of French
Guyana, its homeport since 1990.

Ecole Sainte Marie
of Colombier Celebrates
Its 80th Anniversary


From Wednesday, June
14 through Saturday,
June 17, the Ecole Sainte
Marie of Colombier cele-
brated its 80th anniversary.
Commemoration activities,
which included an exhibit
tracing the history of the
school and a mini theatre
festival, concluded with a
mass at the school. The
Ecole Sainte Marie of
Colombier was the first
school on the island. It was
created by Father Irenee de
Bruyn, a Dutch priest, who
was also responsible for the
construction of the hospital
in Gustavia that bears his
name, along with residents
who gave what money they
could as well as hours of
work to build the school. It


opened its door in 1926,
after five years of construc-
tion. In March 1926, 35 stu-
dents started classes under
the eye of principal Henri-
ette Malespine, who was
the director of the school
until 1948. After that, the
school was run by nuns
from the Order of Saint
Paul of Chartres until 1979,
at which time Christian
Greaux was named director
of the school. When she
retired in 2001, she was
replaced Marie-Christine
Ceccaldi, who left in 2004
for the School of Baby
Jesus in Angoul6me. The
current director is Lucienne
Greaux, a former elemen-
tary school student at Ecole
Sainte Marie.

New series
of envelopes
includes the Port
of Gustavia
following the success of a
series of illustrated
envelopes, "The Colors of
Guadeloupe," the postal service
in Guadeloupe has announced a
new series of pre-stamped
envelopes based on the theme
"land and sea." Each of the five
envelopes (with an enclosed
card for correspondence) has the
"sugarcane stamp" that was
issued in March 2005, and each
envelope has a different photo-
graph, including the Port of Gus-
tavia. Cyril Exbrayat took this
photo as well as those of Fort
Saint Louis in Saint Martin and
that of La Desirade, which are
seen on other envelopes. The
series of five pre-stamped
envelopes costs 5.45 euros, and
they are for sale in the island's
three post offices.





























went years alter the tirst
voyage of this kind, a
dozen members and
friends of ASBAS (Saint Barth
Friends of Sweden Association)
paid a visit to Sweden. Leaving
Saint Barth on June 1, their itin- "q
erary took them to Stockholm,
then to Pitea, the small city in
Northeastern Sweden that has
been Saint Barth's twin city
since 1979. For Daniel Blan-
chard, president of ASBAS, the
goal of the voyage was to deep-
en the bonds of friendship
between Saint Barth and Swe-
den, and at the same time to bet-
ter understand and safeguard the
historic heritage of the island
from its Swedish era, and with
this in mind, develop cultural Eva Wasllsten of Sweden and Uranie Questel
exchange programs between the ofSaintfr i,, ii, traditional dresses
two entities. from their native lands.
In Stockholm, the group attend- in Sweden Association, created in
ed the general assembly of Skall- the early 1960s, and whose current
skappet, the Friends of Saint Barth president is Roger Richter. The


group also visited the old part of the
city and the Royal Palace, where
they watched the ceremony marking
the changing of the guard. Their
schedule also included an excursion
to Skansen, the world's first major
open-air museum, a boat trip around
the islands of Stockholm, and a visit
to the Wasa Museum, which houses
the old warship, Wasa. This royal
vessel with 64 cannons sank in the
Stockholm harbor on its maiden
voyage, August 10, 1628, due to a
violent gust of wind. The ship sank
to a depth of 35 meters and was not
brought to the surface until 1956.
Partially rebuilt and renovated, it is
now on display in the Wasa Museum
in Stockholm. The ASBAS group
also visited the grave of Olly
Nyman, who passed away just a few
months before their trip.
Welcomed in Pitea by Thomas Wasll-
sten, president of the Friends of Saint
Barth in Pitea club, and his wife, the
group celebrated the National Day of
Sweden on June 6, and visited the old
town and its museum. They also
stopped by a school for woodworking
and visited one of the world's largest
paper factories. After an adventure on
the rapids and cascades of Pitea's
largest river, and a visit to a profes-
sional tanner, the group headed back
to Saint Barth.
In addition to its cultural aspects,
this trip was the perfect occasion to
reinforce the ties and contacts
between Saint Barth and Pitea, as
well as finalize plans for a group
from Pitea that will visit Saint Barth
on August 15, or Pitea Day. This
group includes a 16 year-old boy
who won an essay contest whose
theme was Saint Barthelemy.
