Dutch civil servants supporting transition


St. Eustatius- The Dutch civil servants
of the Ministry of Traffic and Water
Management visited their local counter-
parts on Tuesday September 8th 2009,
to discuss Air Traffic Control, Air Space
and Airport Development after the tran-
sition. One of the topics was the condi-
tion of the servicing of the landing strip.
This point needs priority in the master
plan. Another issue which has the at-
tention is the airlift to and from the is-
land. A market scan for airlift is in the
making. During their visit they met
with, Planning Officer, Mr Maldwyn
Timber, of Planning, Mr. Ellis Schmidt,
Airport Manager, and the Executive
Council. The Airdrome will remain a
responsibility of the Island Government.
They discussed navigation aids, airspace
and airport developments The agree-
ment with the Executive Council is to
have an approved master plan for the
airport development by year end. The
planning bureau in collaboration with
Traffic and Water Management of the
Netherlands will prepare this plan. The
delegation comprised of Mr. Ton
Franssen, his area is international

Preliminary Design ofWater Distribution Net
Presented To Stakeholders


The activity towards the preparation of
the water distribution system are in
full swing. In the week of September
1st 2009 the consultants Witteveen &
Bos presented the preliminary design
to stakeholders on Statia. These are
planning buro, Domain, Drob, Fire bri-
gade, GEBE and Eutel. A discussion
was held about the design but also the


scope of the works were discussed in
relation to the available budget. The
budget of the European Union 9-EDF
is that which will finance this entire
project. In general all densely popu-
lated areas will be supplied with wa-
terlines, including Concordia Bay
Brow, Golden Rock, Cherry Tree, Town

KNOW YOUR BONES
A bone scan reveals only part of your Osteoporosis risk


During the second interview with Dr.
Sharda Baboe-Kalpoe she lightened
up while sharing that which she en-
joys, which is talking about Health.
She explained the importance of a
medical doctor keeping on top of
things through upgrading. She
wanted to tackle so many topics at the
same time but choose to talk about
osteoporosis. She hopes by talking
about the different sicknesses people
become more aware and knowledge-
able.

WHAT IS OSTEOPOROSIS?
It is a disease that causes bones to
become thinner. Thin bones can break
easily. Most people think of their
bones as being solid like a rock. Actu-
ally, bone is living tissue, just like
other parts of the body, such as your
heart, brain, or skin. Bone just hap-
pens to be a harder type of tissue.
Bone is always changing. Your body
keeps your bone strong and healthy
by replacing old bone with new bone.


Individuals can request through their
physician to run their last bone den-
sity scan results through FRAX or do
it yourself at shef.ac.uk/frax.

WHAT CAN WE DO TO PREVENT
O S T E O P R O S I S ?
It can be prevented and with proper
therapy it can be treated; exercise;
assessing the need for assistive de-
vices (e.g canes, walkers);


When asked if this disease is recog-
nized on St. Eustatius. She explained,
that statistic is not locally kept, how-
ever she acknowledged that a few
people suffer of osteoporosis. She ex-
plained that osteoporosis is rather
common in women after menopause.

What symptoms appear with os-
t e o p o r o s i s ?
At first, osteoporosis has no symp-
toms, but people with osteoporosis
may develop loss of height and are
more likely to break (fracture) their
bones, especially the back (spine),
wrist, and hip bones.

Who are at Risk for Osteoporo-
sis ? Dr. Sharda Baboe gave an
overall breakdown of factors which
are significant to the question.
women who are going through or
who are past menopause ('change);
estrogen deficiency; people who are
thin; low body weight; people who
have a family member with osteopo-
rosis; people who don't get enough



Assuring appropriate foot wear and
vision; eliminate medication that
cause dizziness, if possible.

calcium or vitamin D; People who
drink alcohol often; people who take
bone thinning medicine like
(prednisone) for a long time; people
who do not exercise; and people who
smoke, people with poor health; She
explained that the bone density
scans are the only tool available for
detecting the disease, but shared that
it is far from perfect. While it can spot
the extremely porous bones that are
hallmark of severe osteoporosis, they
are not much help for detecting the
fracture risk in people with borderline
osteoporosis. The WHO (World Health
Organization developed the online
calculator called FRAX, (it stands for
"fracture risk assessment").

GEBE has already placed water
pipes in the Historic Core, this area

this process in not disrupted. The util-
ity companies were informed and in-
volved in the project so that they can
make use of the trenches for installa-
tion of their cables. The Planning Buro
is the coordinator of this project.

Mr. Maldwyn Timber and Siem

prison system in the Netherlands.
They talked about the establish-
ment of a prison on the island. They
toured the island seeking for a pos-
sible location. In the Town hall
meeting of September 15th Mr. Van
der Meulen elaborated extensively


on this information. He talked
about the pros and cons of the es-
tablishment of such a prison on the
island. He said the intention is to
have detention cells to house ap-
proximately 35 prisoners. The
crowds reaction was somewhat mut-
tered about the amount of cells,
however Mr. Vermeulen explained
that detainees of each island should


remain detained on their respective
islands for social and family contacts.
This establishment also creates work
possibilities for young Statians living
on the island and those living abroad
that might want to come back home.
Opportunities for training will be
available according to Mr. van der
Meulen.

Tremor felt on Sint Maarten
Source: Meteorological Services Nether-
lands Antilles and Aruba

Early this afternoon, October 5th 2009 at
about 12:28 hours (local time), an earth-
quake took place below the bottom of
the Atlantic Ocean. This tremor was felt in
many sections of the SSS Islands.

Data received from the United States Geo-
logical Survey indicates that this tremor
took place at a depth of about 35 kilome-
ters or 22 miles below the bottom of the
sea with a magnitude of 4.5 on the Richter
Scale. Its epicenter was located near 18.0
degrees north and 62.8 degrees west. This
is about 33 miles east of St. Maarten.

In an interview with Commissioner
Julian Woodley, G.I.S. asked him to
elaborate on the latest develop-
ments in the Constitutional negotia-
tions. He confirmed the visit of the
Island Government to Curacao in
the week of September 29th 2009 to
be present in the meetings with
State secretary of Kingdom Affairs,
Mrs. Bijleveld-Schouten as observ-
ers. The discussions were: about the
dismantling of the Netherlands An-
tilles by 2010 and about the police
for country St. marten, Curacao,
Bonaire, Saba and St. Eustatius.

One of the issues that I hope to
tackle within short is to activate or
improve the Constitutional Commit-
tee. I need people that are dedicated
have a vast knowledge of experience
and efficient in bringing over infor-
mation (after participating in the


negotiations abroad) to the general
public. For too long we allowed the
process of a dormant constitutional
committee to prevail. Moving for-
ward I hope to continue organizing
Town Hall meetings along with a
panel (comprising of experts in this
area) regarding the Constitutional
developments. Thus far we have
done a pretty good job of hosting
town hall meetings. We cannot give
information that we do not have,
there are still a number of issues
that are still pending. Although the
Dutch will take over education, the
island Government still has to
make a decision on the language of
instruction on secondary level.
Within short a decision will be
made after discussions are held
with the various stakeholders. The
Old Age pension is another issue we
need to re-negotiate with the Dutch.

UNVEILING CARIBBEAN HISTORY OF AVIATION AT ST. EUSTATIUS


By Walter Th. Hellebrand

Commissioner for St. Eustatius, Saba and
Bonaire, Mr. Henk Kamp, and Mr. Hyden
Gittens, St. Eustatius' Governor, were
amongst the special guests who opened
the curtains for glimpses of the fascinat-
ing history of aviation in our corner of
the Caribbean. They were joined at F.D.
Roosevelt Airport by representatives of
St. Maarten, St. Martin and St. Barth's to
unveil a historical display illustrating the
thrill of the early days of flying between
the islands. The colorful saga unfolds in
twelve panels with almost 150 photo-
graphs and illustrations, telling the story
from the free-spirited start in 1946 on
Flat Island (or Tintamarre, off the north
coast of St. Martin) to the founding of
Winair in 1962 and subsequent opening
of the airport in Saba the next year. One
of the last remaining pioneers of the
earliest beginnings on Flat Island, Louis
Richardson, was present to unveil the
two panels recounting those adventur-
ous days. Henkie Rivers, ex-colleague
and protege of the well-known 'Captain
Pipe' (the late aviation pioneer and long-
time St. Eustatius resident Jose Dormoy),
brought to light a panel with some
unique cartoons (including one featuring
himself!).

(From left to right Mr. Louis Rochardson
and Mr. Walter Hellebrand)

The display in the waiting room of the
airport is an initiative of the Aviation
Pioneers of the Caribbean Foundation.
The collages have been put together by
its founder Elly Delien, partner of many
years of the late Jose Dormoy. 'Pipe' is
still remembered on St. Eustatius and


Saba not only for his bravura but also
for never saying "No' whenever he was
called upon for an emergency airlift,
even at night when car lights had to light
the runway. When he passed away in
2007, Elly was left with a virtual treasure
trove of documents, information and
images relating to the early days of avia-
tion in the Windward Islands. She de-
cided to share this with everyone and
therefore set up the Foundation. One of
its goals is the establishment of a flying
school in St. Eustatius. The idea was
enthusiastically endorsed to the audi-
ence (including Commissioners Roy
Hooker and Julian Woodley) by St.
Maarten politician and business man
Michael Ferrier. Together with Jan Beau-
jon (Managing Director of Windward
Islands Bank) he unveiled the two St.
Maarten panels. The author of this arti-
cle assisted with the research and writing
of the information for the exhibition and
for the title of the St. Eustatius panels he
chose "The Prized Connection" because
of the crucial role the island played in the
commercial viability of the first local
airlines, including Winair. A flying school
could revive that function in the field of
aviation training.

Another goal is to keep alive the history
of aviation in the Caribbean and the
chairman of the Foundation, Mr.
Terrance Rey (managing director of Air St
Maarten, a company offering private
charters throughout the Caribbean),
thanked Alida Francis, the management
of the F.D. Roosevelt Airport, the St.
Eustatius Tourism Development Founda-
tion, the Windward Islands Bank and Mr.
Ricardo Fortin for their contributions to
make that possible. The Foundation re-
lies on donations to realize its projects
which include education material for
schools and a TV documentary. Dona-
tions can be made via the US$ account of
the Aviation Pioneers of the Caribbean
Foundation nr. 105805306 at the Wind-
ward Islands Bank. Also, checks can be
mailed to the treasurer, Elizabeth M.
Delien c/o Mazinga Gift Shop, Maz-
inga Square, St. Eustatius.

Anyone with stories or images relating to
the history of aviation on our islands is


invited to bring them to the attention of the
Foundation. Copies can then be made in
order to make the account of this history as
comprehensive as possible. You can contact
the Foundation through its website http://
www.aviationpioneers.info or through wal-
ter@aviationpioneers.net. And if you are not
in a position to visit Statia or the airport,
many of the illustrations can also be found
on the above website.
