January 20 Is President Obama Day


St. John Tradewinds
In commemoration of the inau-
guration of the first African-Amer-
ican United States President, Gov-
ernor John deJongh proclaimed
Tuesday, January 20, 2009, as
"President Barack Obama Day" in
the Virgin Islands.
Obama will become the nation's
44th President during inaugural
ceremonies in Washington D.C.
on Tuesday.
DeJongh's proclamation also
grants administrative leave to gov-
ernment employees on Tuesday in
order to allow residents of the Vir-
gin Islands to celebrate this mo-
mentous occasion. The proclama-
tion notes that the "people of the
Virgin Islands have shown them-
selves to be faithful supporters of
the new President-Elect through


their participation and support of
the various campaign and post-
campaign activities."
"We made the proclamation and
gave our government employees
the day off because a truly historic
event will take place on Tuesday,
January 20, and I believe it will
undoubtedly be the type of event
that people years from now will
ask the question, 'where were you
when Barack Obama was sworn in
as our 44th President?' and each of
us will remember where we were
at that exact moment," wrote the
governor.
In granting the day off, deJongh
wanted people to have the chance
to take everything in and remem-
ber this unprecedented moment in
our nation's history, he explained.
"But also, and I believe even


more importantly, it is my hope
that the citizens of our territory
will take this opportunity to watch
and share this historic moment
with their families, especially with
our children, to ensure that they
understand what it means for them
and the opportunities that this sig-
nifies for the next generation," said
deJongh.
The deJongh proclamation also
makes note of the fact that the in-
auguration of the new president
occurs on the day after the obser-
vance of the birthday of Dr. Martin
Luther King, Jr.
The administrative leave from 8
a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, January
20, does not apply to essential em-
ployees, employees on a regular or
rotating shift, and employees on
annual or sick leave.

Looking Back at Tektite 40 Years Later


Celebration Set for February 15


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
On Sunday, February 15, the
V.I. Environmental Resource Sta-
tion on the remote southern shore
of St. John will be the center of ac-
tivity for history buffs and marine
science fans celebrating the 40th
anniversary of Tektite I.
The festivities kick off at 3 p.m.
when St. John Historical Society
board of directors member Bruce
Schoonover, who has conducted
extensive research on Tektite, will
present a talk on the program,
which will include rare photo-
graphs and video clips.
Following Schoonover's talk,
VIERS officials will unveil the
new Tektite Underwater Habitat
Museum where a collection of
photographs, films and other Tek-
tite artifacts will be on display.
Conrad Mahnken, one of the
original four aquanauts, will be on
hand to share his personal view of
the project and answer questions
from the public.
Project Tektite program man-
ager Dr. James Miller, retired Di-
rector of Ocean Technology for
the Department of Interior, will
also be in attendance to add his in-
timate perspective on the pioneer-
ing project.
Tektite I was a ground-breaking
study when it was launched in
1969, and is actually the reason
VIERS exists at all.
Home Base Built by Seabees
The eco-camp was constructed
in 1968 by Navy Seabees as a
home base for the Tektite under-
water habitat program which, dur-


"I traced the roots of Tektite back to the
cold war and the nuclear arms race going on
back then. It's my conclusion that the U.S. had
come to feel very vulnerable and very para-
noid about falling behind the Russians."
- Bruce Schoonover, board member
St. John Historical Society


ing its first mission, housed four
aquanauts who spent 60 days 49-
feet below the ocean's surface at
nearby Great Lameshur Bay.
The habitat was constructed by
General Electric Company and
consisted of two cylinders each
18-and-a-half-feet tall by 12-and-
a-half-feet wide connected by a
tunnel. The crew of Department
of Interior marine scientists - Ed-
ward Clifton, Conrad Mahnken,
John van Derwalker and Rick
Waller - headed below the sur-
face on February 15, 1969.
The men would spend the next
60 days conducting various re-
search projects while being re-
searched themselves by a team of
scientists studying their moods and
stress levels, explained Schoon-
over.
Daily Hours of Study
"The aquanauts averaged seven
and a half hours of diving every
day and put in a total of 432 hours
of underwater study during the
60-day period," said Schoonover.
"There were teams of researchers
as well as NASA officials studying
the aquanauts 18 hours a day. They
kept track of the aquanauts every


10 minutes and collected 400,000
data points during the mission."
A collaboration between the
Department of Interior, the Navy,
NASA and General Electric Com-
pany's Missile and Space Division,
project Tektite provided ground-
breaking research in various fields
including the capacity for humans
to spend prolonged periods of time
in a confined space.
Looking To Space
Many different government
agencies, including NASA -
which was then gearing up for
space travel - were closely in-
volved with Tektite, explained
Schoonover.
"I traced the roots of Tek-
tite back to the cold war and the
nuclear arms race going on back
then," said Schoonover. "It's my
conclusion that the U.S. had come
to feel very vulnerable and very
paranoid about falling behind the
Russians."
"As a result of that, the govern-
ment and industry and education
interests got together and said,
'we've got to do something,'" said
Schoonover. "One of the main rea-
sons for the program is that NASA


wanted to find out how a group
of men would react to being in a
confined, isolated condition for
60 days. NASA's skylab missions
were 60 days which is how Tektite
I became a 60-day mission."
Saturation Diving Studies
Only a few months after Tektite,
on July 21, 1969, Neil Armstrong
became the first man to walk on
the moon. The space connections
to Tektite were strong, even the
name, which refers to objects cre-
ated by the impact of meteorites
on the earth's surface, references
the connection of space and sea.
The Navy and Department of In-
terior were interested in the proj-
ect for different reasons, explained
Schoonover.
"The concept of saturation div-
ing is that when a diver stays sub-
merged for a prolonged period of
time - days or weeks - nitrogen
builds up in the body," he said.
"They discovered by this time that
if you stay down long enough,
your tissues fill to capacity with
nitrogen and you don't have to go
through decompression as long as
you stay submerged."
"The Navy wanted to prove that
you could stay submerged and do
productive work for days on end,"
Schoonover said.
Ideal Location
A remote comer of a small is-
land in the Caribbean seems an
odd choice of location for such an
undertaking. The island, however,
provided the ideal conditions for
underwater habitat experiments,
explained Schoonover.
"St. John was picked because


of its isolation and Lameshur Bay
had all the attributes needed to
do marine studies - calm water,
clear water, beautiful coral reefs
and lots of fish," he said.
Following the success of Tektite
I, the habitat was hauled back to
GE headquarters and retrofitted.
The habitat was returned to St.
John for a second project, called
Tektite II, which consisted of 11
separate missions over an eight
month period in 1970.

Researchers Looking at Sediment

To Link Land Activity to Coral Health


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
With coral reefs in decline
world-wide a group of marine sci-
entists on St. John has been taking
a closer look at how land-based
activities impact ocean life.
A team of scientists led by Dr.
Sarah Gray of the University of
San Diego's marine science and
environmental studies depart-
ment has been collecting sediment
samples from several bays around
St. John over the past two years
to study the make-up of the sedi-
ment.
Gray shared results of her pre-
liminary data with about 20 Coral
Bay Community Council members
and guests during a forum at Estate
Concordia Preserve on Thursday
evening, January 15.
The project, supported by the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration, focused on com-
paring sediment samples from a
developed watershed to those from
an undeveloped watershed area.
The health of coral reefs impact
the health of numerous fish spe-
cies as well as the shore-line itself,
Gray explained.
Sea Monsters
"A researcher referred to coral
reefs as sea monsters, which is fit-
ting because they are made up of
plant, animal and mineral matter,"
Gray said. "They are very, very


important ecosystems. They are
nursery habitats for many species
of fish and are important for pre-
venting erosion."
Over the past 40 years, live
coral cover has declined about 80
percent throughout the Caribbean,
Gray added.
"Reefs are in trouble right now,"
she said. "There are many possible
reasons for the decline. The good
news is that some stressors to coral
reefs we can actually do something
about - the land-based sources of
pollution."
Beginning in 2007 Gary and re-
searcher Mike Fox started collect-
ing sediment samples in Fish Bay,
as an example of a developed bay,
and Great Lameshur Bay, which
is an undeveloped watershed. The
samples were collected from reef
sites, near-shore sites and bay
sites.
Mitigation Potential
"This idea of the land and sea
connection is a connection that we
hadn't really looked at in the past,"
said Gray. "This study is actually
looking at one aspect of that con-
nection, the sediment which makes
it from the land to the sea. We're
looking at the land-based sediment
which we could potentially miti-
gate."
After collecting samples in Fish
Bay and Great Lameshur Bay ev-
ery three weeks for a year, Gray


expanded the project and began
collecting samples at several sites
in Coral Bay - near the man-
groves, by Shipwreck Landing and
off Calabash Boom - in 2008.
The scientists have a total of
24 sediment traps scattered off the
south shore of St. John with seven
of those traps in the Coral Bay wa-
tershed area.
Land-based and Water-Based
Components
Studying the composition of
the sediment - what part is com-
posed of terrigones or land-based
matter and what part is composed
of carbonate or water-based matter
- allows the researchers to deter-
mine how much matter is flowing
into the water from land.
The samples were processed at
the V.I. Environmental Resource
Station before being shipped to the
University of San Diego for fur-
ther analysis.
Gray's preliminary research
from Fish Bay showed highly vari-
able sediment flux depending on
rainfall and other factors over the
year. Fifty milligrams per square-
centimeter per day of sediment is
considered harmful to coral reefs,
according to Gray.
In Fish Bay, Gray's team found
sediment levels as high as 400 mil-
ligrams per square-centimeter per
day, she explained.

Stephen Hiss Is New Friends


of VINP Development Director


We've got it all at oil





Hardware


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Taking over the reins of devel-
opment director for Friends of VI.
National Park from Karen Brady,
Stephen Hiss is settling right into
island life.
After moving to St. John in Au-
gust, Hiss paid his island-living
dues as a grounds keeper at Cinna-
mon Bay Campground, and is now
enjoying his new, indoor post.
"I feel like I've paid my dues
at Cinnamon Bay," said Hiss. "I
was hacking through the bush
one day and a jack spaniard flew
up my nose and stung me. It was
incredibly painful, but that's good
because I kind of feel like I was
initiated by fire."
"I can really appreciate now
how things have worked out,"
Hiss said. "I could have bailed out,
but I stuck it out and I was blessed.
Now I take a shower before work
instead of after."
Hiss' determination to call St.
John home was further tested a
few months after he arrived.
"When I got here I needed a
place to live and a job," said Hiss.
"I got the job at Cinnamon and
I ended up living in a tree house
pretty much between Peter Bay
and Cinnamon Bay. I went through
the hurricane and the earthquake
in that tree house."
"During the earthquake, I was
thinking, 'how much worse is this
going to get,'" Hiss said. "I would
have had to get out of there it if got
any worse."
Like many people, Hiss fell in
love with St. John during vaca-
tion and late last year the frequent
island visitor felt it was the right
time to make a change in his life,


fund raising and special event
planning for non-profit organiza-
tions in Maryland. The Friends'
new development director also
brings a passion for the job, Hiss
added.
"This is something I really be-
lieve in," he said. "My job is be-
yond worthwhile. It's very heart-
warming to me and I feel like I've
gotten back to who I really am."
Through his work, Hiss has
found getting to know the island,
and its residents, quite easy, he ex-
plained.
"For being a new person, I've
really been thrown into the mix,"
said the Friends' new development
director. "I go to a lot of functions
and mix and mingle and I've got-
ten to know a lot of the people who
make this island what it is."
Hiss didn't have much time to
get adjusted before starting to plan
one of the Friends' biggest parties
to date. The group's 20th anniver-
sary fund raising gala is set for
Saturday, January 31, at Presidio
del Mar.
"It's my first big project on
St. John and everything is going
great," said Hiss. "It's going to be
a great night. Mathayom is doing
the food, Greg Kinslow will play
music and we have lots of great
raffle prizes available."
While Hiss is new on island, he
plans to call St. John home for a
long time, he said.
"I feel right at home here," Hiss
said. "I get to wear shorts and flip
flops to work and it doesn't get
better than that."
For tickets to the Friends gala or
to donate to the group, call Hiss at

Hiss explained.
"Things were at a point in my
life where it was like 'now or nev-
er,'" he said. "It was time to take
the plunge."
Spending a week in paradise,
however, is far different from call-
ing it home, as Hiss soon discov-
ered.
"It's different living here than it
is coming down on vacation," said
Hiss. "You find the same things
in life as everywhere - doing
laundry, working. The difference
is you're doing it in this beautiful
place."
"On St. John, it is the national
park that makes the place really
special," Hiss said.
When he saw the advertise-
ment for the Friends development
director post, it was just what he
had been doing in the states, Hiss
explained.
"I saw the ad, it was exactly
what I'd been doing for years in

mirror image of my resume."

Friends of VINP Express Hope and Optimism at Annual Meeting


By Andrea Milam
St. John Tradewinds
Despite the dwindling economy,
there was hopefulness for both land
conservation and the VI. National
Park at the Friends of the VINP's
annual meeting on Sunday after-
noon, January 11, at T'ree Lizards
restaurant at Cinnamon Bay.
Friends President Joe Kessler
told the more than 100 people in at-
tendance that 2008 was an "active
and busy year with big accomplish-
ments."
Despite challenges, including the
economy and transition of key staff
members, Kessler noted numerous
Friends accomplishments, includ-
ing raising more than $500,000,
hosting 500 schoolchildren and 27
exhibits at its annual Earth Day
event and improving eight miles of
VINP trails.
"Seven-hundred and fifty chil-
dren visited the park on school-
sponsored trips and our seminar
program was well-attended," Kes-
sler said. "We saw considerable
growth in our Beach to Beach
Power Swim, and the Friends store
broke even after just six months."
Despite his optimism, Kessler
admitted that 2009 will be a chal-
lenging year for Friends, which has
several goals it hopes to accom-
plish including raising more than
$900,000, helping with the Hassel
Island rehabilitation project and


"In these really difficult times, I am hope-
ful about land conservation. The good news
for land conservation is that land values are
down, which gives us a second bite at the
land use apple. When times get tough, people
turn to what values most."

- Trust for Public Land president and CEO Will Rogers

Trust for Public Land president and CEO Will Rogers
addresses a crowd of more than 100 at the Friends of the
VINP's annual meeting on Sunday afternoon, January
11, at the T'ree Lizards restaurant at Cinnamon Bay.
Rogers, the event's keynote speaker, shared his hope
and optimism for land conservation despite the dwindling
economy.


renovating the archaeology lab at
Cinnamon Bay.
"It's going to be a difficult year,"
said Kessler. "We need your help."
2008 was also a good year for
the VINP, park superintendent
Mark Hardgrove explained in his
state of the park address. More than
10,000 volunteer hours were spent


on cleaning up trails, roadsides and
beaches.
The park received more than
$1 million in unused funds from
other national parks, which it used
in several areas, including the new
Cultural Archives and Research
Center and the park's utility sys-
tems, which underwent significant


improvements, according to Hard-
grove.
The VTNP welcomed several
"heavy hitters," during the year
Hardgrove explained, includ-
ing Secretary of the Interior Dirk
Kempthorne, Senator Harry Reid,
Senator Jay Rockefeller, Congress-
man Norm Dicks and Congressman
Todd Tiahart, along with several
planning visits by Governor John
deJongh and Delegate to Congress
Donna Christensen.
Hardgrove urged the local gov-
ernment to plan with the park in
mind.
"The NPS and Virgin Islands
government still need to plan to-
gether," said Hardgrove. "We look
forward to the selection of a plan-
ner for St. John and the completion
of the Land Use Plan to guide us in
the appropriate development of our
island."
Visitor satisfaction and under-


standing are high, Hardgrove ex-
plained, however there is much to
do when it comes to visitor safety.
Cultural resources are in poor con-
dition, as are numerous visitor facil-
ities, roads, trails and signs. Ocean
resources, coral reefs and fisheries
are stressed, Hardgrove explained.
"However, with your continued
public understanding and support
and over 200 project funding re-
quests now in place - and with
partners like you - together we
will work to make our parks the
best they can be for the celebration
of the National Park Service cen-
tennial in 2016," said the VINP su-
perintendent. "These parks would
not look as good as they do today
without the support of our partners'
efforts on St. John, St. Thomas and
Hassel Island, and the Friends' sup-
port in the VINP."

Woman Seeking Services Gets Locked


Out of Community Crisis Center


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
While St. John Community Cri-
sis Center officials maintained in
a previous interview with St. John
Tradewinds that the group was
still offering all of its services,
one St. John resident learned first-
hand such was not the case.
The woman, who wished to not
be identified, had been receiving
services for several months before
finding the door locked one day,
she explained.
"I was living with an alcoholic
who cut me and my daughter out
of all the money," said the resi-
dent. "I went to the Crisis Center
the first time a year ago and they
arranged for me to stay some-
where for three days. The man
stopped drinking and I went back
to him, but then things got worse
again."
"This year I was trying to leave


him again and I had been getting
services at the Crisis Center for
several months," said the resident.
"When I finally got away, my
daughter and I were given three
nights at a hotel from them."
After their three night stay at
a local hotel, the resident and her
daughter were looking for a place
to live on their own, explained the
woman.
"I had found a place to live, but I
needed some money covering first
and last months rent in order to
move in," said the resident. "They
had set up a case for me and said
they would give me a check when
they got funding. A few weeks lat-
er, I went by to check and the door
was locked."
"I've never heard anything back
from them since then," the woman
continued. "They left me high and
dry. It was just irresponsible the
way they handled it all."


It remains unclear what servic-
es the St. John Community Crisis
Center is offering, if any, but for
now there are no emergency ser-
vices available on St. John, ac-
cording to the resident.
"There is no crisis center here,"
said the woman. "I think there
are services on St. Thomas, but I
can't afford to go back and forth. I
haven't been able to get help any-
where."
"I don't know if they are plan-
ning on reopening but the St. John
Community Crisis Center is not
offering any services right now,"
said the resident. "I have no where
to turn. Other women shouldn't
have to go through this."
SJCCC officials did not return
St. John Tradewinds phone calls
requesting comment. The answer-
ing machine at the group's office
encouraged people in need to call
911.


Rafe Boulon Awarded

Keeper of the Live Oak


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
VI. National Park Chief of
Resource Management and St.
John native Rafe Boulon was
awarded the region's top honor
in his field last year.
Boulon was chosen as the
National Park Service South-
east Region Natural Resource
Manager of the Year in 2008
for his work in helping the
Trust for Public Land acquire
the more than 420-acre VINP
in-holding at Estate Maho Bay
for preservation.
Originally chosen in 2007,
Boulon was given the Keeper
of the Live Oak Award in June
2008. The VINP official worked
for years as a liaison between
the park, TPL and the Marsh
heirs who owned the majority
shares of the property.
It1 '\. a long and tiring pro-
cess, but very rewarding," said
Boulon. "I was in federal court
18 times during the negotiation
stages."
When the area faced immi-
nent development, Boulon was
instrumental in hammering out
a deal where TPL acquired the
majority of shares to ensure
Estate Maho Bay - which
stretches from Maho Bay beach
over several hillsides and in-
cludes the pristine Maho water-
shed - will remain preserved
for generations to come.
"Saving that land was really


St. John native
and VINP Ranger
Rafe Boulon

huge," Boulon. "If Maho Bay
had been sold to a developer,
we could have 700 plus resi-
dences built in the area and it
would have split the VINP and
the North Shore in half."
"Development in that area
probably would have had an
extremely negative impact on
the marine resources in Maho
Bay and Francis Bay," he con-
tinued. "It would have had a
tremendous impact on the eco-
systems there."
TPL raised about $19 million
to purchase the majority shares
in the property last year and is
expected to officially transfer
the land to the NPS in the near
future.

ZoZo's To Go offers the perfect take home and heat options and sandwiches for the
beach or boating.


Buon Appetito To Go - ZoZo's Dishes


Are Now Available at Every-Ting


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
In the mood for some just-
like-Mom-makes Italian food, but
don't feel like cooking or sitting in
a restaurant?
Now St. John residents and vis-
itors can enjoy some of the most
popular dishes ZoZo's Restaurant
has to offer - like fresh home-
made lobster ravioli with a light,
all-natural marinara sauce - right
in their very own home or villa.
ZoZo's, a locals' favorite Italian
eatery at Gallows Point Resort, re-
cently added a "to go" menu avail-
able exclusively at Every-Ting, the
gift and convenience store at the
resort in Cruz Bay.
ZoZo's owner John Ferrigno
and Every-Ting owner Brenda
Woodward are excited about their
new partnership.
"I used to get constant requests
from people who wanted sand-
wiches to bring on a boat trip or
to the beach," said Woodward. "I
never wanted to get into the food
preparation business though, so I
couldn't offer them anything."
Through ZoZo's To Go at Ev-
ery-Ting, Ferrigno is now able to
offer menu items and sandwiches
all day long, he explained.
"I've had lots of requests from
people who wanted food from
ZoZo's to take on their plane rides
home with them," said Ferrigno.
"But we don't serve lunch and I
couldn't take orders for that. This
way people can pick up a sandwich


at Every-Ting and enjoy it on their
way home."
In the face of slower economic
times ahead, the ZoZo's To Go
partnership works for the restau-
rant and Every-Ting, Ferrigno
added.
"It's a win-win situation for
both of us by producing more rev-
enue for ZoZo's and more traffic
for Every-Ting," he said.
The customer also wins out by
being able to take advantage of de-
licious freshly made items - ev-
erything available on a given day
is whipped up that very morning
- at affordable prices.
For lunch, ZoZo's To Go at
Every-Ting offers two sandwich-
es, both of which are served on
freshly baked ciabatta bread and
are only $8.50.
A huge Italian stacked with hot
capicola, Genoa salami, provolone
cheese, roasted red peppers and
basil will whet any appetite. The
vegetarian sandwich, loaded with
fresh mozzarella, roasted red pep-
pers, artichoke hearts, kalamata
olive pesto and roasted garlic, is a
certain crowd-pleaser.
Dinner options abound. Freshly
made sauces like Mama's marina-
ra and parmesan cream, which run
between $4 and $8, are perfect to
top house-made lasagne or lobster
ravioli, available for $8 and $12.
And don't forget salads. Choose
from mixed greens or pasta for be-
tween $3 and $5.
Roasted red peppers, marinated


artichoke hearts, basil pesto -
great for making an impressive an-
tipasto spread - are available for
between $5 and $7.
Sausage and peppers and tira-
misu - available for $6 and $5 -
round out the impressive ZoZo's
To Go menu.
While the numbers certainly
add up, it's the quality and taste of
the food that really makes ZoZo's
To Go an exciting addition to the
St. John food scene. All items are
made daily from the freshest in-
gredients and contain no preserva-
tives.
"It's the closest to home-cook-
ing you can get without cooking,"
said Ferrigno.
"The prices are great, but you
can also really taste the freshness,"
said Woodward. "All of the items
have been really popular already."
Locals and visitors alike have
been stocking up on sandwiches
to take boating and beaching, and
dinner options to heat at home, ex-
plained Woodward.
ZoZo's To Go items are also
ideal for provisioning villas, Fer-
rigno added.
Every-Ting, open daily from 8
a.m. to 9 p.m., offers ample park-
ing and is ideally situated just up
the hill from Wharfside Village for
those on foot.
A variety of sandwiches and
dishes are available daily, but for
larger orders, call Every-Ting at
693-7730 at least 24 hours in ad-
vance.

Gifft Hill School students perform in the pre-
sentation of "Princess Willow and the King of
Thieves" on Friday evening, January 16. The
musical drama by Stephen Stearns and Peter
Amidon of the New England Youth Theatre kept
the standing room only audience in stitches. The
GHS students, who learned the entire script -
including songs - in just seven days, put on a
remarkable performance. Stearns, the founder of
the New England Youth Theatre, traveled to St.

Alateen Meets Mondays at St. Ursula's
St. John Tradewinds
A new fellowship organization for teenagers whose lives have
been affected by a problem drinker has started on St. John.
Alateen will meet on Mondays at St. Ursula's Church from 6 to
7 p.m. and is open to anyone interested in attending.
The group is anonymity-based and ensures the confidentiality
of its participants, often using the motto, "whom you see here,
what you hear here, when you leave here, let it stay here."
Based on the knowledge that a person's drinking affects that
person's entire family, Alateen strives to engage young people to
exchange experiences and gain an understanding of themselves as
well as the alocoholic in their life.
The group is not affiiliated with any religious or political orga-
nization and is entirely self-supported by voluntary contributions
from members.
For more information call 771-6706.

28th Legislature In; Senator at Large
Barshinger Heading Up
Economic Development Committee
By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
After being formally sworn-in on Monday, January 12, mem-
bers of the 28th Legislature announced their committee leader-
ships.
Senator at Large Craig Barshinger is chairperson of the Com-
mittee on Economic Development, Energy and Technology.
Barshinger is vice chairperson of the Labor and Agriculture Com-
mittee and is a member of the Appropriations and Budget Com-
mittee, the Health Committee and the Education, Youth and Cul-
ture Committee.
The senators wasted no time getting right down to business on
Tuesday, January 13, considering Governor John deJongh's revised
fiscal year 2009 budget, which the body passed that evening.
"The decisive action by the members of the Legislature sends
a clear signal that, as lawmakers, they understand the importance
of this issue," said deJongh. "Additionally, I view the action of the
senate as an important first step in our working together to face the
economic challenges we now face as a territory."

NBC TV Series Momma's Boys Showcased St. John Jan. 12


St. John Tradewinds
The U.S. Virgin Islands made its 2009
primetime television debut Monday night,
January 12, when the reality dating show
"Momma's Boys" aired on televisions across
the country on primetime network station
NBC.
St. Thomas and St. John set the scene
for the night's episode, which was the first
of two to feature the USVI. This week's
episode, which airs on Monday, January 19,
will take place exclusively in St. Croix for
the season finale.
The Department of Tourism worked ex-
tensively with NBC to ensure that key areas
throughout the USVI were prominently fea-
tured throughout the episodes.
The new NBC series, produced by Ryan
Seacrest Productions and Glassman Media,
follows three possessive, yet loving mothers
who must help their complacent sons choose
the perfect woman.


The six-episode series premiered on De-
cember 16 and has followed cast members
from a mansion in California to the sunny
shores of St. Thomas, St. John and St. Croix,
where the show will air its final two episodes
and dramatic season finale in the USVI.
"We look forward to sharing the beauty of
our islands with viewers nationwide," said
DOT Commissioner Beverly Nicholson-Do-
ty. "While we have no control over the actual
content of the show, we were able to ensure
that key areas on St. Thomas, St. John and
St. Croix were captured throughout the two
episodes as a result."
Through a strategic partnership between
NBC, the DOT's film office and its New
York-based public relations firm M Booth &
Associates, the U.S. Virgin Islands was able
to secure feature destination coverage of St.
Thomas, St. Croix and St. John.
The first USVI episode took viewers to
the Wyndham Sugar Bay Resort & Spa,


Coral World Ocean Park and Ondeck Ocean
Racing in St. Thomas, along with Cruz Bay,
Mongoose Junction and Peter Bay on St.
John. The final episode will feature key areas
on St. Croix including Tan Tan jeep tours,
downtown Christiansted and Fort Christian-
vaem.
"We have been working diligently to bring
large productions such as these to our is-
lands," said Nicholson-Doty, Commissioner
of Tourism. "NBC not only provided us with
an opportunity to showcase our attractions
to a large national audience, but the produc-
tion also employed our local film industry,
utilizing our experienced pool of talent and
crew."
"We expect the resulting coverage to
highlight the many offerings of the U.S. Vir-
gin Islands, both as a tourism destination and
as a filming location," said the DOT com-
missioner.
As a result of the film office's efforts, the


destination will receive approximately $36M
in broadcast advertising value and a national
audience of close to 7 million viewers.
During the shoot, the producers hired
many of the destination's local crew and
services, including location managers and
scouts, restaurants and catering, production
assistants, and equipment services, repre-
senting a significant investment by NBC in
the local film industry and economy.

iScream! Brings the Espresso Back to Cruz Bay


By Mauri Elbel
St. John Tradewinds
Anyone whose days seem to
drag on ever since Every-Ting
ceased its gourmet coffee-making
operations, can now get the same
java jolt once again in Cruz Bay.
Colette Rethage, owner of
iScream!, recently purchased the
coffee equipment and menu from
Every-Ting and is brewing those
missed mochas and longed-for
lattes from her Wharfside Village
eatery.
"I kept Every-Ting's same
menu because people have been
going there for years and they
know exactly what they like to
get," Rethage said. "It was impor-
tant to me to keep every thing the
same."
Whether it is a milky way, mo-
ray mocha or eggnog latte you are
after - or perhaps a cappuccino
or shot of espresso guaranteed to
provide that extra pep - iScream!
is creating beverages hot enough
to warm you up and cool enough
to chill you out.
"We've got fantastic hot, iced
and frozen chai," Rethage said.
"All of our drinks are available
hot, iced or frozen."
Located next to Low Key Dive
Shop, iScream! opens its doors
daily at 6:30 a.m. and keeps them
open until 11 each night.
"We are located right off of the
parking lot so people can find a
parking space easily early in the
morning, jump out and get a cof-
fee, and thenbe on their way," Re-
thage said. "It really is a perfect

iScream! offers a wide selection of espresso drinks at its Wharfside Village location.


spot for the coffee edition."
iScream! even incorporated Ev-
ery-Ting's long-standing baristas
to brew its popular beverages.
"When I bought the equipment
and the menu from Every-Ting
about a month ago, I got lucky and
I also got to keep the coffee girls,"
Rethage said. "They sort of came
along with the package - they
wanted to move where the coffee
went because they have been do-


ing it for so long and every body
knows them."
If Rethage knows how to ac-
complish one thing, it is how to
bring what the island lacks right
to her shop. The former high
school English teacher had been
vacationing on St. John for years,
noticing something crucial miss-
ing from Cruz Bay - ice cream.
"Every year I came to the is-
land and asked 'where is the ice

cream?'," Rethage recalled. "I am
a huge ice cream fan, and it is so
hot here! So when I came down
on my summer break and didn't
want to leave, I knew I needed a
challenge and decided to open up
an ice cream shop."
Rethage opened her first
iScream! location in February
2006, near the V.I. National Park
dock between Margarita Phil's and
Morgan's Mango. She still serves


ice cream treats and smoothies
there, but will soon convert it
into an outdoor frozen drinks bar
serving up tasty libations such as
painkillers, mojitos, margaritas
and daiquiris.
In November 2006, she opened
her second iScream! shop in
Wharfside Village where pass-
ersby can satisfy their sweet tooth
with soft-serve ice cream as well
as an array of other treats ranging
from smoothies and hot dogs to
nachos and slush puppies.
With espresso drinks no longer
within arms reach, adding the cof-
fee operations to the Wharfside
eatery seemed like the only logi-
cal thing to do.
While Rethage admits coffee
sales are off to a slow start, the
word is beginning to spread as
sweetly as the aromas emanating
from her shop. As V.I. Daily News
recipient of the best desserts on St.
John for the past three years, she
knows how to lure in the sweet
lovers with her baked goodies.
"I am making my own vanilla
and cinnamon waffle cones dai-
ly," Rethage said. "And once that
smell hits Wharfside village, peo-
ple know Colette is baking waffle
cones."
The coffee scents that now waft
from iScream! only add to the
shop's mouth-watering appeal.
"I have coffee beans that are
specially roasted for that day and
then shipped straight to me so
they are very fresh," Rethage said.
"The coffee aroma that comes out
of the shop is delicious."

Unregistered Rental Cars Ticketed

St. John Tradewinds
VI. Police Department Commissioner James McCall and Bu-
reau of Motor Vehicle Director Jerris Browne reminds the public,
especially rental car agencies on the island of St. John, to make
sure their vehicles are registered on a timely basis with the Bureau
of Motor Vehicles.
"A recent traffic initiative on St. John highlighted the fact that
many rental cars have overdue inspection stickers on their wind-
shields," McCall said. "Although it is the responsibility of the of-
ficers to enforce traffic laws we understand we must be sensitive
to the St. John tourist economy when ticketing cars driven by visi-
tors who have no knowledge or responsibility when it comes to
inspecting and registering the rental vehicles."
"We are urging the rental companies on St. John to adhere to
the law and take all overdue vehicles to get registered." McCall
said. "All private and public vehicles must be inspected and regis-
tered according to V.I. law."
Bureau of Motor Vehicle Director Jerris Browne was made
aware of the situation and offered to have individuals in his office
make personal phone calls to the rental agencies on St. John.
"It is not the job of the BMV to contact individuals or compa-
nies to request that they follow the law and inspect their vehicles,"
said Browne. "The police department and the BMV have their
responsibilities to insure the public's safety on the roads and the
owners of the vehicles have their responsibility."
The police department will continue to ticket unregistered ve-
hicles and has asked officers to be especially courteous to tourists
driving unregistered rental vehicles, McCall added.

Former Coral Bay residents and managers of Miss
Lucy's Restaurant Jack and Barbara Royal may have
left St. John, but they haven't forgotten the island.
After calling St. John home for five years, the cou-
ple returned to their native Delaware four years ago
and opened a liquor store. Last summer the pair added
a new enterprise to their repertoire - Coral Bay Cafe
and Bar in Georgetown, Delaware.
The eatery was recently reviewed in the local news-


paper "Delaware Wave" where the write-up graced
the front page of the Dish section.
Miss Lucy's Paella takes a prominent role on the
Royal's menu and in the article, which features a
picture of the dish brimming with shrimp, scallops,
chicken, mussels and chorizo.
The restaurant serves lunch and dinner and its web-
site, www.coralbaycafe.com is currently under con-
struction. For more information call Coral Bay Cafe

V.I. Quarter To Be Produced
by U.S. Mint in 2009
St. John Tradewinds
The U.S. Virgin Islands will be among states and territories
whose designs will grace quarters issued this year by the U.S.
Mint.
The new quarter will encourage Americans to appreciate the
unique history of the territory. The design will be on the tail sides
of the 2009 quarters. The V.I. design features the three major is-
lands which comprise the territory with a banana keet, the official
bird, a Yellow Cedar, the official flower, and a Tyre Palm, a tree
native to this U.S. Territory.
"United in Pride and Hope," the territory's official motto, is
also inscribed on the reverse of the Virgin Islands quarter, which
was designed and sculpted by U.S. Mint Sculptor-Engraver Jo-
seph Menna.
Late last year, federal legislation extended the U.S. Mint's 50
State Quarters Program to Washington, D.C., and the territories.
After the legislation was passed, the U.S. Treasury Department
wrote a letter to Gov. John deJongh setting out a timeline for creat-
ing a design for the territory's quarter.
The New Quarter Program will honor other U.S. jurisdictions
including Washington, D.C.; the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico;
Guam, American Samoa and the Northern Mariana Islands.

Caneel Bay Raises Dining Options


with New Steakhouse at Turtle Bay


St. John Tradewinds
Sharpen those appetites for the
new steakhouse-inspired culi-
nary concept at Turtle Bay Estate
House at Caneel Bay, A Rosewood
Resort.
The distinctive fine-dining res-
taurant - set in an 18th-century
plantation house on the northern
tip of St. John - recently unveiled
the new winter menu from Execu-
tive Chef Anthony Dawodu with a
full-bodied focus on USDA Prime
steaks, local seafood and inventive
side dishes of locally sourced pro-
duce.
Though steakhouses are siz-
zling throughout the mainland, the
new concept at Turtle Bay Estate
House was more about embracing
an opportunity than jumping on a
culinary trend.
"Even the most renowned res-
taurants can't stand still," said
Chef Dawodu, who joined Caneel
Bay from two Boston restaurants,
Bamboa and 33. "Managing Di-
rector Nikolay Hotze and I real-
ized there was no place to enjoy
top-end steaks on St. John or St.
Thomas."
"So we jumped on transforming
the menu at Turtle Bay to reflect
a modem steakhouse inspiration,
with contemporary flair, by using
the freshest ingredients to pro-


vide an array of unique dishes,"
Dawodu said. "Even though the
new menu is quite modem, Turtle
Bay remains true to its fine-dining
roots."
Each of Chef Dawodu's inven-
tive dishes at Turtle Bay is fash-
ioned from the highest-quality
provisions, with local and/or native
ingredients whenever possible.
Look for heirloom tomatoes,
ginger, lemongrass, micro herbs,
arugula, baby mixed greens and
pumpkin, all sourced from a
farmer across the island in Coral
Bay. Lobsters and mahi mahi are
plucked from the seas around St.
John and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
All steaks at Turtle Bay are
USDA Prime aged certified from
Bush Brothers, a fifth-generation,
family-owned meatpacker in Palm
Beach, Florida. Chef Dawodu
keeps cooking methods simple
and straightforward - grilling
and broiling - the better to let
his "top-end" selections sizzle for
themselves.
Starters for the winter season
include native squash and sweet
potato bisque, braised short ribs
with black truffle whipped pota-
toes with marsala-infused natural
jus. From the raw bar, diners can
sample ginger fried oysters on
the half shell with seaweed salad


or colossal shrimp with a guava
cocktail sauce, among other treats.
A crisp selection of salads is also
available.
Main dishes on the menu in-
clude filet mignon, a 14-oz. strip
loin and 38-oz. porterhouse steak
for two as well as veal chop, Colo-
rado lamb rack and bone-in chick-
en breast.
In addition to local pan-seared
mahi mahi, grilled whole Caribbe-
an lobster, farmed Chilean salmon
and striped sea bass, a classic Surf
and turf of lobster and steak is also
on offer. All main dishes will be
accompanied by an assortment
of traditional steakhouse favorite
side dishes.
Be sure to save room for des-
sert! Selections include pavlova
with seasoned berries and pink
grapefruit marmalade, passion
fruit doberge with vanilla bean
curd and roasted pineapple, and a
trio of chocolate including cake,
mouse and sorbet.
So get set to enjoy the new win-
ter menu at the new Turtle Bay Es-
tate House at Caneel Bay - reser-
vations are recommended.
Winter rates at Caneel Bay start
at $450 per night. For more infor-
mation or to make a reservation at
Caneel Bay, A Rosewood Resort,

Caneel Bay Resort To Close

for 2 Months This Summer

By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
For the first time in recent memory Caneel Bay Resort will be
closing its doors for two months this summer.
Resort officials posted a notice on their website announcing that
the property would be closed from September 1 through October
31. The move reflects the both the time of year and the climate at
the former Rockefeller property, explained Caneel managing di-
rector Nikolay Hotze.
"With hurricane scares that time of year and business being slow
anyway, we decided it would be a good idea to close," said Hotze.
"We will do some small capital projects during that time. Nothing
big, but we'll use that time wisely."
For more information about Caneel Bay or to book a room, call
the resort at 340-776-6111.

State of Territory Address Jan. 26
St. John Tradewinds
Gov. John deJongh has asked that the address to the 28th Legislature
and to the people of the Virgin Islands be delivered on January 26, at 7
p.m. before a formal session of the Senate.
DeJongh wrote to Senate President Adlah Donastorg seeking coopera-
tion in selecting the date on which the Chief Executive will deliver the
2009 State of the Territory Address.
In a January 12 letter to the Senate President, deJongh wrote that
while the Revised Organic Act of 1954, as amended, provides for the
speech to be made at the opening session of the Legislature, "I am in the
midst of preparing to submit to the 28th Legislature my proposed revised
budget for Fiscal Year 2009, which I understand will be considered on
January 13, 2009."
"Finally, as a Democratic Governor, I will be participating in the his-
toric election activities for the inauguration of President Barack Obama,"
said deJongh.
The governor congratulated Donastorg on his election to the 28th
Legislature and his selection as President of the body.

Shark Bites in Coral Bay


Editor,
Coral Bay got some shark bites
- steaks, that is - from this 10-
foot tiger shark hauled in by local
fisherman Andy Greaux on Thurs-
day, January 9.
Greaux caught the shark far off
shore, on the south drop where
these pelagic fish dominate the
food chain - so fear not, snorkel-
ers!
A crowd of people who either
hate sharks or love seafood gath-
ered to watch as Greaux cut the
critter up into steaks for the grill
while he regaled onlookers with
the story of how he brought in the
big one.
"I used a block anchor system,
concrete blocks to take a line


Editor,


Two months ago while painting a roof at work one
day, I slipped off the edge and fell 20 feet breaking
my right leg in three places.
Since then I have been in a full-length cast and am
only just now starting to put a little bit of weight on
it. I'd like to thank all of my friends and neighbors in
Fish Bay and all over the island for their help, love
and support in helping me get through what was a
very difficult time.
I couldn't have done it without you and I'm very
grateful. You know who you are. Thanks and God


down to the bottom, then I put a
whole chicken on the hook and a
buoy at the surface," said Greaux.
"When the shark takes the bait, I
cut loose the blocks and haul the
shark all the way back to shore
with the boat."
He showed me a hook the size


of my hand with heavy steel line.
A whole sea turtle and the barb
of a sting ray were found inside the
shark, but fortunately, no masks or
snorkels. A local woman took the
scales of the turtle to use in art
work. Nature wastes nothing and
neither do St. John locals.
The shark steaks went like
hot cakes and Greaux was kind
enough to give me two for dinner.
Marinated per his instructions, the
filets were a delicious white meat
resembling the shape and taste of
a butterfly pork chop. A lot of peo-
ple sank their teeth into some tiger
shark for dinner in Coral Bay that
night. Hopefully, it's not bad kar-
ma next time we go for a swim.

P.S. A thought for the New Year:
You know, we can all change the world individu-
ally every day. All you have to do is want to. Be it just
performing a simple act of kindness or just deciding
to do the right thing instead of the wrong thing. In any
given situation you can make a difference. We all can.
All we have to do is want to. We all have high hopes
for a better world to live in, right? It's never too late
to start making it one.

In Memoriam:
C. Warren Smith1919-2008


Editor,
Avery wonderful doctor priest
he was. So kind, caring, soft spo-
ken, reaching out with love for
all. Married to Marjorie Smith
and the father of seven children.
His dream as a young boy in
St. Thomas was to be a priest.
He remembered in his early
years how he went each Sunday
to church and travelled visiting
with his friends. However, the
parents passed early and his plan
changed to become a doctor first
and help the sick.
At 16 he went to the states to
study medicine with a white suit
on, white shoes, and $15, on a
trawler. He gave the $15 to two
stowaways, as giving as he was.
When the crew found out, they
took a collection and gave him
warm clothes for his beginning
studies.
Then Father Smith went to
study and won oratory competi-
tions and became a doctor study-
ing at Children's Hospital in
Boston, Mass. He was a very fine
doctor for many years to come,
delivering many babies and help-
ing the sick.
In St. John, a donkey deliv-
ered to Cruz Bay would carry
him up the hills to help the sick.
And then he would travel back
to St. Thomas, his home. He was


always caring for others.
C. Warren Smith felt a call-
ing again to the priesthood and
became an Episcopal Priest in
1974, while maintaining a medi-
cal practice on St. Thomas. He
was very dedicated and helped
all.
While for 20 years as a priest at
St. Ursula's, he had a dream. He
wanted to build a cathedral from
the existing little tin church. He
succeeded in seven years with no
mortgage and the help of many
very caring parishioners to build
a beautiful cathedral and multi-
purpose center for all. Amazing!
Beautiful new stonework was
completed by a mason behind the
altar and low and behold, a large
cross can amazingly be seen in
the stone pattern. It just hap-
pened. All were surprised.
Father Smith was as the spirit

Editor,
The general consensus today is that our faltering
economy is the victim of excesses brought on by in-
dividual greed. So deceptive in its simplicity, it brings
to mind the possibility of an evasion meant to fore-
stall some substantial changes to both the educational
system and political structure that have been so in-
strumental in the development of our cyclical "boom/
bus" economy.
Carefully considered, I don't believe "greed" is re-
ally the problem, though it certainly is one of the con-
sequences. Beginning at the level of the individual,
our daily activities, in varying degrees reveal both a
difficulty in dealing with external forces as well as a
lack of inner discipline.
Our modem American styled life is a treadmill ex-
istence that demands ever greater blocks of time just
to maintain the constantly changing level of an afflu-
ent standard of living. Each day brings a constant bar-
rage of advertising meant to seduce us into consum-
ing so much more than is good for us, and purchasing
far more than we need or can afford.
Until quite recently, with the economy still spinning
quickly, the majority were generally over worked,
over stressed, over weight and over drawn financial-
ly. And yet, despite what seemed like the path that
promised more and more, happiness was something
we were not approaching, nor even understanding.
In education, the curriculum that would enable
more of us to better understand the strengths and
weaknesses of human behavior has yet to be devel-
oped for the secondary school level. The knowledge
of how our hereditary traits and biochemistry interact
in brain functions that govern our ability to learn, that
affect our capacity to develop social skills, and that
serve to initiate a very complex array of emotions, is
fundamental to comprehending both the development
of the individual and their decision making skills.
There are some much needed insights here that
could well explain the onset of mania's, be they in our
personal ambitions or a rapidly expanding economy
where the cycle of euphoria is inevitably followed by
a depression of equal intensity as sustainable limits
are surpassed by unchecked zealousness.
The failures of our government are everywhere and
readily apparent. It was the deregulated environment
that allowed many of the excesses to go unchecked
for so long, and anyone who thinks that this is a fail-
ure of just one political party is either not in posses-
sion of sufficient facts, or is in denial due to the fog
of partisan loyalty.
Those that think it began with "Reagonomics,"
which George H. W. Bush referred to during his pri-
mary campaign against Ronald W. Reagan as "voodoo
economics," are not acknowledging the deregulation
of the airline industry and telecommunications under
President Carter.
Every president and congress since then has had a
hand in deregulating the banking, financial or some
other sector, with the result that each administration
had some major catastrophe to show for their efforts.
In a careful analysis of how structural deformi-

ties manifest themselves in government, the electoral
process is the linchpin that controls the access to the
wheel of government, and it is that very point through
which so much corporate grease is funneled to smooth
the otherwise significant friction that fundamentally
democratic principles in our constitution represent.
There are a great many fault lines running through
what was once viewed as the solid bedrock on which
our nation was built. Our legal system has a malleable
quality which has allowed for incremental changes to
undermine the effectiveness of the checks and bal-
ances that were such a prized element of our structure
of government.
Currently no effective controls guard against the
tentacles of corporate influence that have so success-
fully manipulated the tax codes, and created an anti-
regulatory environment that opened the largest sec-
tors of our economy to a casino styled risk taking that
has reduced the financial security of the majority of
Americans and now threatens the very livelihoods of
millions more.
In our market place of daily life, the juggernaut
of globalization is not an environment conducive to
small and medium sized businesses, and rather than
the panacea it was once described as, it is no differ-
ent than a stacked deck of cards that gives unfair ad-
vantage to a multinational elite who have no strong
national sentiments.
Their relentless pursuit of profits and perceived ef-
ficiencies have led to the level of risk taking that now
threatens us with a crisis of global proportions. A cen-
tury ago such concern sparked a series of laws that ef-
fectively reduced the power of monopolies. Will the
new leadership in Washington recognize this for the
threat it is, and if so, how will they deal with it?
In a world where the rules of commerce favor the
largest corporate entities, is a stimulus package that
promotes family ties, cultural values and the sense of
community a compelling interest?
The situation is a global concern, and it is no lon-
ger clear that national policies in any one or even a
limited number of countries can address it. Efforts by
the International Accounting Standards Board are an
interesting case, and the negative reaction on the part
of the U.S. to implement the fair value accounting
standards proposed are a sign that market volatility
will not be reflected in held assets, thereby giving in-
vestors a skewed picture of the true financial strength
of any institution. What we're clearly in need of is
more scrutiny, so what's the logic here?
In individuals the embodiment of regulation is a
self-discipline that correctly understands our best in-
terests, in society it is those government institutions
created to oversee the interactions of the educational
and economic sectors of our nation. Recognizing that
our truest freedom and that ill-defined 'pursuit of hap-
piness' are the fruits of a balance between self-inter-
est and social responsibility, we arrive at the starting
point to understanding and correcting what really
went wrong.

Letters to St. John Tradewinds


An Update on GHS from Its Administrative Board President


Editor,
Mark Twain said that almost anything can be ac-
complished if you have the right combination of igno-
rance and confidence. This perfectly sums up my feel-
ings about being the President of the Gifft Hill School
Administrative Board. I've reached the one year mark
in this commitment and I thought it would be appro-
priate to take a minute to review and help others on St.
John understand a little bit about the process, and also
what we have been able to accomplish.
My first thought is that of thank you to an excel-
lent headmaster, Ben Biddle. We are very fortunate to
have someone as energetic, intelligent and commit-
ted as Ben. He has done a formidable job in working
with all of the shareholders and has continued to build
a team of committed administrators and teachers. I
commend Ben on his vision and sense of the bigger
picture as we grow and I know I am speaking for all of
the Board Members when I say that we look forward
to working with Ben on the exciting future of GHS.
As many of you already know, GHS has been chal-
lenged by changing locations, names, acquisitions,
changes in tax laws, changes in organizational struc-
ture, difficulties in finance and more. Many of these
issues have been resolved, but there is always work to
be done, and many challenges in terms of achieving
our goals.
In order to properly organize the school to meet
our goals, we have re-written our bylaws and created
two boards that operate GHS: The Foundation Board
and The GHS Administrative Board. The Foundation
Board is working on the strategic plan for the school
and the funding to achieve these plans.
The GHS Administrative Board is responsible for
the operation of the school, and is comprised of four
standing work groups: Facility, Policy and Personnel,
Curriculum and Accreditation and Fiscal Oversight.
Together, these boards have a series of checks and
balances that support the overall mission of GHS.
With this structure, we are able to accomplish mul-
tiple tasks and oversee multiple processes.
The results from this change in the organizational
structure have been excellent. In terms of overall qual-
ity of education, we are clearly a leader in the Virgin
Islands, having placed students at several prestigious
universities, seen countless success stories and pro-
vided opportunities in education that simply did not
exist on St. John prior to GHS.
Our mission includes reaching out to all of St.
John's children, regardless of personal circumstance.
Attending GHS requires a large personal commitment
on the part of the student and his or her family, and
we work diligently to make sure that financial abil-
ity is not the determining factor for enrollment. We
strive to balance the quest for excellence in educa-
tion with providing an equal opportunity for all of our
children.
As a result, GHS seems to reflect the same wonder-
fully diverse social and racial balance as the island of
St. John and almost two thirds of our students receive


financial aid in one form or another. We are truly the
most public of private schools, and a positive influ-
ence on the stability of our society.
Tuition alone cannot cover the costs associated
with a GHS education. While we are achieving un-
precedented levels of financial support for our growth
and development, we will always need to raise money
to cover the difference in our budgets. Even in these
tough economic times, everyone can afford some level
of giving to this important investment, so please give
generously whenever you can. Support our events,
like GHS Auction and the GHS 500 or buy from our
students as they look to fund their excellent field trips,
which are indispensable to our curriculum.
As we look to the future, we are about to see the
unfolding of many or our dreams. This spring, we will
complete a playing field adjacent to the road on Gifft
Hill that will be the highest quality athletic field on
St. John. We have a contract to install the island's first
commercial wind power turbine, lowering our operat-
ing costs and replacing fossil fuels with clean wind
power.
We will begin to provide laptop computers for all
students at the upper campus and integrate these with
an enlarged commitment to our information technol-
ogy curriculum. We will meet and exceed the Middle
States accreditation standards, and refine our curricu-
lum offerings to better prepare our children for the
world they will inherit. And these are just the things
that I am immediately confident of.
Our strategic plan, now in the drafting process,
includes the development of a first class gymnasium
and theatre complex by re-tasking our main building
and building out classrooms on our eight acre site.
The classrooms will be built in compliance with the
LEEDS (Leadership in Energy and Environmental
Design Green Building Rating SystemiM).
There is a genuine interest in developing vocation-
al programs to address the needs of children who may
not desire to attend college. It's important to note that
we view our facilities as community assets, and will
look to partner with and support other programs, al-
lowing the responsible use of the facility by any and
all.
If you had asked me a year ago if I thought that we
could acheive all of these goals, I would have said
you were dreaming. I was ignorant, but fortunately, I
was confident....perhaps because I was ignorant.
But we live in a very special place and we can
make our dreams into realities, if we are willing to do
the work. It's really very exciting, and I am proud to
be a small part of this entire process.
I'd like to invite you, if you are interested, to tour
the GHS facility by calling Ben or Beth at 776-1730
and see just how far we've come in a few short years.
I'm confident that you'll come away a supporter of
this institution and its goals.
Sincerely,
Michael Barry
President, GHS Administrative Board

This Navy ship, photographed off Yawzi Point above, transported Tektite to St. John in
1969.

Looking Back at Tektite 40 Years Later


Continued from Page 3
A total of 53 aquanauts includ-
ing an all-female crew and inter-
national participants, took part in
Tektite II. Through the second pro-
gram, marine scientists expanded
the previous research and tested
cutting-edge diving equipment,
explained Schoonover.
"This program allowed for more
diverse and in-depth marine scien-
tific studies than the first, would
attempt extended stays at a greater
depth and test and evaluate more
sophisticated diving equipment,"
he said.
After Tektite II wrapped up, VI-


ERS was transferred to the Uni-
versity of the Virgin Islands. Since
1997, the eco-camp has been run
by the non-profit group Clean Is-
lands International which hosts
children's science camps in the
summer and a variety of research-
ers year-round.
The Tektite habitat itself was re-
turned to GE headquarters outside
Philadelphia, where it sat until
1977 when it was shipped out to
California, according to Schoon-
over.

was used for educational purposes

Researchers Look at Sediment
Continued from Page 5
Dangerous Levels
"We're still interpreting the data, but the levels were high enough
to damage some coral," said Gray.
While the sediment flux in Great Lameshur Bay varied widely as
well, the levels never reached higher than six or seven milligrams per
square-centimeter per day.
"In this situation during the study period, sediment levels were at
least three and as much as 73 times higher in the developed watershed
than in the undeveloped watershed," Gray said. "We can't say it's due
to development - there could be many different factors contributing
to this. That's why we're continuing the research."
Data from 2008 showed similar patterns of sediment flux in Fish
Bay and Great Lameshur Bay, but a very different story unfolded
from the Coral Bay data, Gray explained.
Near-shore Levels Highest in Coral Bay
The highest sediment rates in Fish Bay and Lameshur Bay were at
the reef sites, but the highest sediment rates in Coral Bay were found
at the near-shore sites, according to the marine scientist.
The make up of the sediment varied from bay to bay as well, Gray
added.
"Coral Bay by far had the highest percentage of terrigones matter,
while the sediment in Lameshur and Fish Bays was mostly composed
of carbonate matter," she said. "In the three locations within Coral
Bay that we studied, the Shipwreck site had the highest level of ter-
rigones matter. It looks like the mitigation work at Calabash Boom
may be helping and reducing some input into the bay."
The team will continue sampling sites until April and will also be
taking a look at how currents might impact the sediment distribution,
Gray explained.
"We'll look more carefully at the data and compare rainfall data
and currents," she said. "Our goal is to learn more about what's going
on so when you're ready to really manage the watershed, you have
some data to use."
The Environmental Protection Agency awarded CBCC a $300,000
grant to work toward managing the Coral Bay watershed. The group,
which has partnered with the government and various agencies for the
management project, plans to use the majority of the funds to hire a
storm-water engineer.
"The work that Dr. Gray and others are doing will be critical for
making policy recommendations as we try to figure out what will
work to reduce sediment going into the bay," said CBCC president
Sharon Coldren.
For more information about Gray's work or CBCC, check out the
group's website at www.coralbaycommunitycouncil.org.

Hope and Optimism Expressed at Friends Meeting

and CEO Will Rogers was the
event's keynote speaker. TPL has
played a huge part in the conserva-
tion of land on St. John, including
in 2007, when the national non-
profit organization officially ac-
quired majority interest in the 420-
acre VINP inholding Estate Maho
Bay for $19 million - the biggest
land conservation effort since Laur-
ance Rockefeller's donation of land
to the VINP in 1955.
TPL also worked in 2008 with
Maho Bay Camps and Estate Con-
cordia owner Stanley Selengut to
preserve the 2.2-acre oceanfront
parcel at Nanny Point.
"The lens through which we


look at land conservation is land for
the people," said Rogers. "We help
communities figure out their con-
servation priorities - how to help
you protect what you care about."
Rogers is optimistic about land
conservation even in spite of the
dwindling economy, he explained.
"In these really difficult times,
I am hopeful about land conserva-
tion," said Rogers. "This is an un-
precedented opportunity because
of the real estate prices. When land
values are down, it gives us a sec-
ond bite at the land use apple."
In the November 2008 election,
more than 75 percent of initiatives
across the nation which raised taxes
for land conservation were passed,


Rogers explained.
"People voted to tax themselves
to protect the places they care
about," he said. "When times get
tough, people turn to what they
value most."
Friends honored John Fuller as
volunteer of the year for "very gen-
erously donating his time in vast
quantities," said Kessler, and VINP
Interpretive Ranger Denise Georg-
es received the Friends Partnership
Award for organizing the annual
Folk Life Festival.
Minnesota resident Terry Peters-
en, who volunteers with the VINP
nearly full time each summer, was
selected as the NPS volunteer of
the year.
