Westin Resort and Villas 2008 Toy Drive Was a Huge Success


St. John Tradewinds News Photos by Jaime Elliott

Resort officials distributed gifts to JESS students, at left.


By Dustin Prudhomme
St. John Tradewinds
This holiday season, the Westin
St. John Resort and Villas security
team spearheaded a toy drive with
the hopes of bringing the holiday
cheer to the youth of the island.
With the full support of the
Westin management, the toy drive
resulted in 104 wrapped toys and
100 stockings filled with games,
candy, coloring books, and cray-
ons.
Once all of the items were
collected and sorted, Julius E.
Sprauve School vice principal


Brenda Dalmida was contacted to
arrange for the school children in
kindergarten through fourth grade
to receive the presents. Westin of-
ficials were also able give presents
to students in special education
classes, as well.
With a few last minute calls and
wishes, Westin officials were able
to secure the appearance of Santa
Claus to assist with handing out
the gifts and stockings. Santa ar-
rived on December 22, 2008, in
full dress, and met with Westin Re-
sort officials in the JESS cafeteria.
Each child was able to let Santa


know what he or she wanted on
Christmas Eve. Santa also provid-
ed each child with a stocking filled
with Christmas goodies.
After meeting with Santa, each
age group met with Westin's Di-
rector of Fun Toya Frazer-Ellis
and spoke about the community
impact which tourism has on the
island's economic development.
Many students either had a close
friend or family member who is
employed by the Westin. This
helped the students understand the
need for all residents of the USVI
to learn more about tourism.


On December 23, 2008, Wes-
tin officials met at Guy Benjamin
School and handed out presents
and stockings to students in kin-
dergarten through second grade.
To see the joy on the children's
faces was a true holiday reward.
Westin officials felt renewed that
this small action of kindest was
so personal and warmed the hearts
of the island's youth, according to
Westin General Manager David
Yamada.
"Though this Holiday Toy Drive
was planned as a one-time event,
we hope to carry this forward as


an annual tradition," said Yama-
da. "It's always a great feeling to
give back to our community in a
meaningful way and providing our
youth with even a little happiness
during such uncertain economic
times, certainly hits that mark."
"I extend many thanks to Direc-
tor Dustin Prudhomme and Team
Westin's Security Department, for
their leadership role in creating
and organizing this event for the
youth of St. John," Yamada con-
tinued. "I am truly proud of our
entire team in their outreach and
generosity."

V.I. National Park officials con-
tinue installing custom cabinets
in their soon-to-open Archive and
Research Center, and hope to have
the space open to the public by
mid-Spring.
While the finishing touches are
being completed, the push to cre-
ate an archive center started more
then two years ago, explained Na-
tional Park Service Caribbean his-
torian Milagros Flores.
"The regional office in Atlanta
put together a team of museum
professionals to produce the VINP
Archive and Records Management
Plan," Flores said. "The document
indicated their recommendations
for the park to take to be in com-
pliance with preservation of its ar-
chive collection. The most impor-
tant recommendation was to put


all of the holdings in one location
and have them preserved in appro-
priate containers."
Organizing the collection, which
consists of historic manuscripts,
photographs, maps and rare books,
has kept park officials busy for
months, Flores explained.
"Until now, the archival hold-
ings have been scattered around
the park in different offices and
they have not been put together in
one location," she said. "The col-
lection needs to be catalogued in
order, not only to be able to pro-
vide information to the park for
better management of its resourc-
es, but also to be available to the
public eventually."
"We need to be better organized
in order to provide productive ser-
vice to the public," said Flores.
The archive and records center
will be located in Lind Point near


VINP's resource office, overlook-
ing the island's North Shore. A mo-
bile compact storage system, with
acid-free containers, is currently
being installed, Flores added.
"Basically it's a system of
custom built file cabinets which
protect the documents from the
environment and also keep them
secured," said the NPS Caribbean
historian.
Although a completion date for
the center depends on factors out
of the park's control - the weather
from Hurricane Omar delayed the
project several weeks - officials
hope to open its doors to the public
by April, Flores explained.
"We're still getting our equip-
ment installed and getting orga-
nized here," said Flores. "We ex-
pect some interruptions during the
holidays, but after the holidays we
hope to really get going on this.

Crazy Crackers Is Newest Cruz Bay Hot Spot


By Susan Mann
St. John Tradewinds
When newlyweds Dave and April Wolf
decided to open a new bar and restaurant in
Cruz Bay they weren't exactly sure what to
call it.
While the former Duffy's Cruz Bay loca-
tion is the 30th bar Dave Wolf has opened
to date, it was a first time experience for
his wife. Then the couple hit on the idea to
name it after their beloved, adopted Chihua-
hua, "Crackers," who passed away just a
few months ago.
A striking likeness of Crackers now
adorns the entrance to the business, called
Crazy Cracker's, which has been steadily
busy since it opened on December 11.
"I really wanted to slow down and enjoy
life more with my new wife," said Dave
Wolf, who operated the East Coast bar on
the East End of St. Thomas nearly 25 years
ago.
The entrepreneur, who continues to op-
erate six bars in Atlanta, also thought his
wife would prefer the more leisurely pace
of Love City.
The main goal for "Crazy Cracker's" is
"to offer good food and quality customer
service at an affordable price," said Dave
Wolf.
Service is the hallmark of any business
and each food server received a full week of
training before Crazy Cracker's opened its
doors, according to the bar owner.
Heading the food preparation staff is for-
mer Balcony and Chateau Bordeaux Chef
Scott Penney. The menu includes both light
and hearty fare, with the eleven wraps and
paninis already popular favorites.

For those who want to really chow down,
the five "big stuff' possibilities are sure to
please. Large plates include a meatloaf main
dish which comes with a large portion of
home-made meatloaf topped with gravy and
served with mashed potatoes and roasted
vegetables. That's a lot on your plate for just
$14.
The casual d6cor reflects a well-planned,
beach-oriented atmosphere. Regular hours
of operation are 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 a.m.
The featured music is Jimmy Buffet-style or
soft rock until late evening when more tra-
ditional up-beat rock emerges.
A dance floor is located on the first level.
A lot of problems develop in bars due to the
type of music being playing, according to
Dave Wolf.
"We are completely anti-drug," he said. "I

am completely anti-drug. Our security is
made up of off-duty police."
The couple's late Chihuahua pet Cracker
was in five different foster homes before
they adopted him.
"He was passed around South Beach as
a 'purse pet' until each person got tired of
him," said Wolf. "When we got him, they
were calling him Cracker, and we thought
he had been through enough changes, so we
kept it."
After the sad loss of Cracker, the cou-
ple tracked down his sister Zoe, who now
spends most days in their office. Another
10-year-old Chihuahua rounds out the dog-
loving young family's brood.
Their love of animals goes beyond adop-
tion into concrete action, Dave Wolf added.
"We want to get very involved in char-

money to feed every dog in the shelter for
one year before we left Florida."
The new business owners, who also pur-
chased the St. John Inn, plan to become
Love City home owners soon.
Meanwhile, business at Crazy Cracker's
has been steady, as a recent night saw locals
enjoy a sporting event on one of several flat
screen televisions, returning island visitors
grabbing a bite, and folks just having a fun
night out.
The couple are enjoying their new digs
as well.
"We are very pleased that we chose St.
John as our new home to begin married
life," said April Wolf.

St. John Tradewinds
With flu season in full gear and
ear aches around every corner,
Mom is not only nurse to her little
ones but midnight comforter, chef
de jour, child development spe-
cialist and of course teacher ex-
traordinaire.
If Mom's letter to Santa was lost
in the post or maybe illegible from
the spit-up stains, then she needs a
post-Christmas gift from the fam-
ily, perhaps some "me" time.
As the holidays come to a halt
and the New Year ring-a-lings are
still heard through the hangovers,
it is quite likely that the Mommies
on island did their fair share of
cooking, entertaining and mother-
ing. While no one wants to drag
out the commercialism one more
moment, this New Year's resolu-
tion for Dad could be to give Mom
some more free time.
Moms Want Free Time
A quick poll of new Moms on
island revealed that while their
husbands and partners like to sug-
gest they can alleviate the strain,
allowing and even encouraging
some private time for the Moms on
call, this is not entirely the case.
Big talk is not always followed
through with big action. Dads,
take note, offering to give Mom
some alone time is not the same
as actually providing it. Be proac-
tive, take initiative by getting the
bottles ready, find the diapers, pick
out an outfit for baby and strap on
the baby carrier. Dads can do this!
One great Dad on island took
it a step further by not only giv-
ing Mom a break but booking a
room at the Westin Resort and Vil-
las, dropping her off and waving
good-bye while he and their son
Jack drove into the sunset return-
ing the next day for some family
pool time.
Can't afford the room? Cut the
cost by takingbaby out of the house
so Mom can catch up on sleep,
email or just simple hygiene. Most
Moms polled listed shio%\ci" just
beneath "sleep" as their favorite
thing to do when they have some
down time. This is not extravagant
stuff to request.
Coveted Babysitter Numbers
Dads and husbands aren't al-
ways available, so the next op-
tion comes from Connections. As
the labor pool grows so do the job
searchers and last week there were
two listings for babysitters on is-
land complete with references.
The going rate is $10 to $15 per


hour, depending on the number of
children and ages. Many restau-
rants also employ potential sit-
ters as wait staff looks for second
shifts.
Need a sitter? Ask around the
restaurants and you will likely find


one, and in my experience, they
come with references galore.
These are the sitters who have
been doing such a good job they
don't need to list their numbers.
Word of mouth is a great method
but any Mom who asks a friend


for their sitter's number, be well
aware that this is sacred ground -
right up there with not dating your
friend's ex-boyfriend.
Moms spend valuable time
searching for their sitters and
while they may happily share the


number, keep in mind it can be-
come fodder for future feuds.
Potential babysitters are of-
ten identified at schools and day-
care centers. Speak to teachers or
neighbor's kid's teachers, they
may have some suggestions too.

companying on piano. It was a special joy to see
Sylvia Weaver with her whole family. She likes
her new retirement facility in Florida and insisted
that this was her last St. John visit. No one wanted
to hear that - don't worry, Sylvia will return. She
was always so involved in community events.
School of the Arts Performs at Caneel Bay
The Sugar Mill, now called the Equator, be-
came a stage for pianists, drummers, dancers and
vocalists on the afternoon of December 27. The
children in the audience were invited to join the
performers - drumming, led my Eddie Bruce,
was their favorite.
Jan Kinder, Director of SJSA, was joined
by dance director Kim Wild, assistant Kazume
Schaub, and Shatik Stevens, leading vocalist, in
presenting the school's gifted artists.
Megan Hodge Is Again Most Outstanding
Player
If you want to see a truly natural athlete per-
form, you should have watched Megan as she led
Penn State's volleyball team to the second cham-
pionship in a row. Her aunt, Karen Samuel, always
tells me when the NCAA finals are on ESPN. It
is thrilling to see Megan blast those kills over the
net. Penn State won by 25-20, 26-24, 25-23, over
Stanford University to become the greatest team
in women's college volleyball history. Megan and
her father are St. Thomians, but her mother is Car-

Another Speeding Truck Accident
Why can't the police control this out-of-hand
problem? It's terrifying when those big trucks, in-
cluding the water trucks, come barreling at you on
the wrong side of the road.
Incidentally, Jean Mason, who was severely in-
jured by a huge truck, is recovering at home with
help from her friends - Tradewinds apologizes
for calling her a SIno1" bud " If she wasn't living
on "Sixpence" with her late husband, John, she

Letters to St. John Tradewinds

Rodenticide Poison Information Is Outdated


St. John Tradewinds
Tradewinds Editor,
I keep up with BVI and USVI events by reading the
on-line newspapers, including St. John's Tradewinds.
My sisters and I lived in Tortola during our pre-school
and early school years; two of us are now veterinari-
ans practicing in the U.S. As a veterinarian, I've taken
particular interest in the Tradewind's discussion about
the widespread use of rodenticide poison in St. John.
In an effort to add something new to the Tradewind's
discussion, may I point out that the 1979 research and
conclusions quoted in Roskin's pro-anticoagulant let-
ters are outdated. It's now recognized that although
"effects [of anticoagulant poisons] are gradual, devel-
oping over several days, claims that they are painless
are unfounded." (Choiniere, M., Melzack, R. Pain,
vol. 31, 317-331.) Most rodenticides act by causing
internal bleeding, and though the user knows his or
her desired outcome is death of the rodent, he or she
may not intend for it to cause an agonal death. Any
human who has had therapeutic anticoagulants mis-
fire and cause internal or joint bleeding, can attest to
the high level of pain involved. I frequently see pet
animals poisoned accidentally with rodenticides, and
while veterinarians can administer antidotes for the
more common anticoagulant rodenticides, many pets
die before treatment is instituted. Cats are victims to
secondary poisoning by catching poisoned mice, and
dogs frequently eat the tasty bait that was intended for
the rodents. Only very small amounts of the poison
can cause death in companion animals and I would
never have the products in my home or office with a
young child and pet animals on the premises. Every
year children are accidentally poisoned by these eas-
ily available poisons. The American Association of


Poison Control Centers cites 20,300 US rodenticide
emergencies in 1998, of which 17,608 were children
under six years of age, with at least five fatal cases
in that year alone. Newer effective rodent controlling
baits have been developed that block breeding by in-
terfering with sperm production. These do not cause
secondary poisoning in exposed pets or children,
though their commercial use is so far limited because
the older rodenticides are cheaper and more available.
The frustrating truth is that poisoning random rodents
does not in fact reduce populations that are attracted
to food sources provided by human activity. Although
it is easy to spread mouse and rat poison, if garbage
is kept in bags, or in plastic bins with loose lids, or in
loosely closed dumpsters, then more rats will continue
to come regardless of whether a few are poisoned. It
is essential to use chew-proof metal garbage cans with
tightly fitting lids, if rodent control is to be successful.
If one wishes to prevent rodents from entering homes
or buildings, food must be kept in tight containers,
and all entry holes must be blocked, which can be a
formidable project. For indoor use, electronic plug-in
devices are available which emit ultra-high-pitched
signals that chase cockroaches, mice, and rats from
premises. My family in the Virgin Islands uses these
long-lasting devices successfully, and the long-term
cost is far less than for repeated exterminator visits.
Instead of using deadly poison, home and business
owners, property managers, and exterminators in the
Virgin Islands should switch to up-to-date methods to
achieve humane pest population control.
Most sincerely,
Rebecca E. Campbell, DVM
Symphony Veterinary Center,
New York City, NY
