S100th birthday, which was April 8. Wells was born on
Gift Hill on St. John during Danish rule. He eventu-
ally moved with his family to Brown Bay where he
lived until his teen years. After school, Wells worked
on sailing vessels including "DC," which transported
mail between St. Thomas and St. John. After mar-
rying Linea Anderson, the Wells family moved to
Lovango Cay where they lived for many years before
Returning to St. John in the 1970s.

New Trial Possible for Convicted Cockayne Killer


By Joseph Tsidulko
St. John Tradewinds
Recently identified witnesses
and a misstep by prosecutors could
result in a new trial for the only
man convicted of the 2007 murder
of Jamie Cockayne - a crime that
cast a harsh national spotlight on
St. John and the Virgin Islands jus-
tice system.
V.I. Superior Court Judge Bren-
da Hollar heard arguments Friday,
April 18, requesting another trial
for Jahlil Ward based on new evi-
dence - statements from at least
four witnesses who claim they
heard Ward's codefendant, Kamal
Thomas, confess to stabbing Coc-
kayne in Cruz Bay and leaving the
21-year-old Pennsylvania man for
dead.
Hollar said she is likely to grant
the new trial because prosecutors
failed to turn over one of those
statements, which was document-
ed in a police report the govern-
ment had in its possession well
before the murder trial began in
October 2008.
"It's going to be very difficult
not to grant a new trial," Hollar
told prosecutors.
Ward, 20, was convicted more
than half a year ago of stabbing to
death Cockayne behind a wooden
construction partition near Fash-
ion Palace soon after Cockayne
left the Front Yard bar in the early
morning hours of June 19, 2007.
Cockayne was living on St. John
while waiting for his immigration
papers to clear so he could take a
job as a sailing instructor at Bitter
End Yacht Club on Virgin Gorda.
Ward's codefendants, Thomas
and Anselmo Boston, 32, were ac-
quitted of all murder charges, but
the jury found Thomas and Bos-
ton guilty of two counts of third-
degree assault against Cockayne,
and two counts of using dangerous
weapons - first a pool cue, then
a wooden 2-by-4. The judge has
since reduced one assault charge
against each man to a misdemean-
or and thrown out the weapons
convictions.
Cockayne was stabbed about a
half-hour after the altercation with
Thomas and Boston at Front Yard.
The two were angry because Coc-
kayne kicked Boston's girlfriend's
vehicle, according to their state-
ments to police. Eyewitnesses tes-
tified they saw both men chasing
Cockayne outside of the bar.
Ward's attorney, Michael Quinn,
subsequently filed a motion asking


Anselmo Boston


for a new trial based on three wit-
nesses whose existence came to
light after the trial.
Quinn said it wasn't until
Wednesday, April 15, that prosecu-
tors informed him for the first time
of a witness who told police he
heard a confession from Thomas.
Quinn immediately filed another
motion arguing the withholding
was a violation of a legal prec-
edent that requires the government
to provide defense attorneys with
all potential exculpatory evidence.
Hollar said she first examined
that motion minutes before Fri-
day's hearing. The judge described
it as "a bombshell."
Withheld Statement
On September 12, 2007, police
interviewed Daryl Martens, who
had been in jail with Thomas be-
fore the 19-year-old was released
under conditions of house arrest
while awaiting trial.
Martens told police "Six-pack"
- Thomas' nickname - admitted
to him he was the assailant who
killed Cockayne and shared some
details about the crime.
Prosecutors provided the de-
fense with almost 500 pages of
documents before the trial as part
of the discovery process, "and
this is the one they don't give us,"
Quinn told Judge Hollar, adding
he was not accusing the Attorney
General's office of intentional mis-
conduct.
In his motion, however, Quinn
wrote, "Clearly, the Martens notes
were suppressed by the People."
Assistant Attorney General Re-
nee Gumbs-Carty accepted blame
for the withholding of the notes,
but said it was an unintentional er-
ror which resulted from the sheer
volume of paperwork involved in
the case. Gumbs-Carty argued the
error did not affect the outcome of
the first trial and did not warrant a
new trial.
Gumbs-Carty said she learned


Kamal Thomas


Quinn never got a copy of Mar-
tens' statement while she was pre-
paring for Friday's hearing, and
she immediately sent the defense
attorney the document.
The prosecutor reminded the
court that multiple witnesses who
testified during the week-long tri-
al in October directly implicated
Ward in the stabbing. Some of
those witnesses said Ward con-
fessed to them, others said they
saw Ward immediately after the
crime with blood speckles on his
clothes.
Quinn argued at the trial those
witnesses were part of a plot or-
chestrated by Thomas to frame
Ward. He reminded the judge Fri-
day it was Thomas' attorney who
brought his client to the attention
of law enforcement and who pro-
vided authorities with the witness-
es and evidence that ultimately
resulted in Ward's arrest.
New Witnesses
On January 12, before the Mar-
tens revelation, Quinn filed a mo-
tion seeking a new trial based on
three witnesses who he learned of
after Ward's conviction.
He called two of those men to
the stand at Friday's hearing.
Donald Lee said he spoke with
Thomas on Commandant Gade
in St. Thomas several months be-
fore the murder trial. Lee said he
invited Thomas to get a drink, but
Thomas declined, pointing out his
ankle bracelet and explaining he
was under house arrest.
At that point, Lee refused to
answer any more of Quinn's ques-
tions, telling a Superior Court
Marshall he did not want to con-
tinue testifying.
Quinn then treated Lee as a hos-
tile witness, asking him directly
if Thomas told him he was under
house arrest because he committed
the St. John murder.
Lee remained silent during a
barrage of questions, at one point


Jahlil Ward

telling Quinn: "Mr. Thomas is not
my friend, but I'm not selling him
out."
But after a few minutes, Lee
reluctantly affirmed that Thomas
admitted to the stabbing.
Some point after the conversa-
tion with Thomas, Lee was ar-
rested on a statutory rape charge.
He met Ward in jail and relayed
details of the conversation with
Thomas, according to Quinn.
The second witness who testi-
fied Friday was more cooperative.
Neal Sprauve Jr., Ward's dis-
tant cousin, said he went to a St.
John beach with Thomas and two
tourist girls a couple days after
Cockayne's murder and he asked
Thomas if he was involved in the
recent crime that people on island
were talking about.
Thomas told him to keep his
voice down and then in a low voice
said, "I did it," , Sprauve testified.
Sprauve said he did not initially
provide police with that infor-
mation because he feared being
branded as a snitch. He said he ul-
timately came forward because he
did not want to see Ward, who he
has known since childhood, spend
the rest of his life in prison for a
crime that he did not commit.
Sprauve said coming forward
has put him in constant fear for
his life, adding he has been getting
death threats in jail.
Family's Crusade
The continuing legal arguments
and new revelations in the case
prolong a difficult period for the
young victim's family. For nearly
two years, the Cockaynes have
pursued justice for their loved one
by working to focus media atten-
tion on the case and keep pressure
on local authorities, who they crit-
icized on national television in the
aftermath of the crime.
The family believed that after
the verdict was read October 10
inside a charged courtroom, they


were close to seeing the end of the
legal ordeal.
Outside the same courtroom
on Friday, Bill Cockayne, Jamie's
father, said with every trip he has
made to the Caribbean since the
trial, he has seen the case unravel.
The series of court proceed-
ings, none of which are bringing
the case closer to a sentence hear-
ing, have been "very trying" on his
family, Bill Cockayne said.
The family believes Ward,
Thomas and Boston all acted in
concert the night of the slaying,
and all deserve punishment.
Attorneys for Thomas and Bos-
ton argued their clients were in a
scuffle with Jamie Cockayne at the
bar, but had nothing to do with the
stabbing. They directed blame at
Ward throughout the trial.
But Quinn said his client is "an
innocent guy, convicted of murder
and going away for life."
"He's entitled to a fair trial,"
Quinn told Hollar on Friday.
The judge must now decide
whether Martens' statement, along
with testimony from the recently
discovered witnesses, would have
created a reasonable probability of
a different outcome at the trial had
they had been made available to
the defense.
If so, Ward will get a second
chance to defend himself, and the
Cockaynes again will wonder if
they will ever see someone held
accountable for their son's death.

"It was the first night of my vacation and I caught

Tourist Beaten, Robbed in Cruz



Bay on First Night of Vacation


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
A Tennessee man visiting St.
John last week didn't even make it
to his rental villa before an attack
by several young men in down-
town Cruz Bay sent him to the
emergency room with an empty
wallet.
After being separated from his
family, the 54-year-old man ar-
rived on Love City on the 12 a.m.
ferry from Red Hook and walked
down the street to Joe's Diner
looking for a taxi to the Westin
Resort and Villas.
Instead of getting directions to
a taxi or a ride to his family's villa,
however, the man was jumped,
robbed and severely beaten around
12:46 a.m. on Sunday morning,
April 12.
"It was the first night of my va-
cation and I caught the last ferry
here," he said. "I walked off the
dock and around to where Joe's
Diner is and I was asking for di-
rections to a taxi or the Westin. My
memory is that a group of young
men tried to assist me in finding a
taxi and it turned into something
else real quick."
"I felt someone trying to get
the wallet out of my pants and
I had a computer and briefcase
too," said the Tennessee man. "I
was trying to hold onto my wal-
let and my briefcase when, to the
best of my recollection, one of the
men punched me in face and I got
kicked several times. They man-
aged to get my wallet and all I
know is that both of my arms were
being restrained."
The beating left the tourist with
a sprained leg and ankle, a frac-
tured nose, a fractured left eye
socket and a number of cuts and
abrasions. He'll need reconstruc-
tive surgery on his eye socket


when the swelling goes down to
avoid further injuries.
After stumbling out of the car
park area next to Joe's Diner, the
Tennessee man made it to the
parking lot at FirstBank before
losing consciousness.
"I was in and out of conscious-
ness," he said. "I was aware of
things most of the time, but I was
really upset."
The man was admitted to My-
rah Keating Smith Community
Health Center at 2:12 a.m. on Sun-
day morning, April 12, where it
was reported that he had been as-
saulted by more than one assailant,
according to Schneider Regional
Medical Center spokesperson Sam
Topp.
"He had injury to his nose, a
swollen left eyebrow, and com-
plained of pain from the facial in-
juries," said Topp. "However, he
refused to cooperate by consent-
ing to treatment or transfer to R.L.
Schneider Hospital on St. Thomas.
Apparently, he was verbally com-
bative and abusive, according to
staff, and was allowed to leave the
facility on his own without recom-
mended treatment."
The next day on Monday after-
noon, April 13, however, the man
admitted himself to R.L. Schneider
Hospital, Topp added.
"He reported to the Emergency
Room at RLS Monday afternoon,
April 13, with a broken nose -
which he said had been broken
several times before - an orbital
fracture (damage to the bone un-
der the eyebrow), multiple abra-
sions and contusions about the
face, and an abrasion on the shin,"
said Topp. "His injuries were di-
agnosed and treated. With medi-
cation, he was discharged several
hours later, around 4:30 p.m."
While the attack was reportedly


caught on video surveillance cam-
eras outside of Meada's Plaza, it
remains uncertain how clear of a
recording it is. V.I. Police Depart-
ment officials are investigating the
incident and expect to make an
arrest shortly, according to VIPD
Commissioner James McCall.
"I am outraged by this senseless
attack and robbery of a visitor to
the U.S. Virgin Islands," McCall
said. "We have very positive leads
and I expect an arrest in very short
order. I am also appealing to any-
one in the community who wit-
nessed this to please contact the
police or Crime Stoppers."
While the tourist called the in-
cident "unfortunate," it didn't sour
his impression of St. John.
"I'm recovering but it's really
unfortunate what happened," said
the Tennessee man. "My fam-
ily owns a time-share at the Wes-
tin and I've heard so many great
things about St. John, my wife
and I were thinking of looking for
something to buy. That will have
to wait for another trip because I
haven't seen much of the island
this time."
Responses from police and the
public have made a difference for
the tourist, he added.
"The police were very profes-
sional and everyone, including
dispatchers, has been very com-
passionate," said the man. "I've
been getting all kinds of apolo-
gies from people who don't need
to apologize. Despite my reserva-
tions about safety, my fears are be-
ing offset by all the responses I'm
getting from people."
Anyone with information re-
garding the assault and robbery
should call the VIPD's major
crimes unit at 715-5518, McCall's
office at 715-5506 or Crime Stop-
pers at 1-800-222-8477.

V.I. Unity Day Formally Requests PSC To Reconsider Ferry Rate Hike


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Virgin Islands Unity Day Group sent
an eight page letter to the Public Services
Commission last week formally requesting
the commission reconsider its decision to
increase most passenger ferry rates.
While a $1.10 fuel surcharge was re-
scinded, the PSC board voted on April 1 to
raise the current $5 adult one-way rate to $7,
which will go into effect in May. Students,
seniors, children and commuter riders on
the Red Hook run will all see their fares rise
as well. Commuter tickets to Red Hook in-
creased from $60 for a two-week supply to
$100 for the same number of rides.
The ferry run from Cruz Bay to Charlotte
Amalie will decrease from $10 to $8 for an
adult one-way ticket, but seniors will pay $6,
up from $5. Commuters will pay $6, which
is the current rate, and bulk ticket users will
pay $6, $2 less than the $8 rate now in effect
for a one-way fare to Charlotte Amalie.
Signed by the VI Unity Day Group's
Transportation Committee Chairperson Sta-
cie January and Co-chairperson Nydia Lew-
is, the letter outlines seven main reasons the
PSC should review its move to raise ferry
fares from Cruz Bay to Red Hook.
Incomplete Financial Records
First, the VI Unity Day Group alleges
that the PSC erred in approving the rates
by relying on incomplete financial records
from Transportation Services, one of two
ferry companies granted an exclusive fran-
chise for the runs between St. Thomas and
St. John.
"The 2006/07 audit report for Transporta-


"This is in effect a subsidy provided to the much fewer
riders on the Charlotte Amalie route at the expense of the
many more riders on the Red Hook route. The rates for
the Charlotte Amalie and Red Hook route are therefore
unreasonable, discriminatory and not supported by any
route cost analysis presented to or documented by the
commission."
- V.I. Unity Day Group


tion Services of St. John includes a quali-
fied statement that the auditor was unable to
confirm a substantial portion - more than
50 percent of each - of the accounts re-
ceivable and accounts payable balances for
the fiscal year ending December 31, 2006,"
according to the letter. "Receivables and
payables systems form core components of
any accounting system and unverifiable bal-
ances question the integrity and adequacy
of the financial controls and systems of this
franchisee."
"The financial statements supplied by
Transportation Services, the franchisee re-
porting the largest and most frequent losses,
cannot be relied on to determine reasonable
rates," VI Unity Day Group wrote in the let-
ter addressed to Joseph Boschulte, chairper-
son of the PSC.
Ineligible Expenses on Returns
The group also alleges that the PSC er-
roneously included ineligible expenses of
franchise holders in determining reasonable
rates including unpaid taxes, below-market
loans to officers, and interest and income tax


costs.
No Interest Loans
To Company Officers
Audited financial statements for both
Transportation Services of St. John and
Varlack Ventures show substantial loans to
company officers. Transportation's state-
ments show more than $71,000 due to the
company from two officers, according to
the letter. Varlack Ventures' financial show
$163,943 due from officers.
"Given that the loans bear no interest
and have no fixed repayment dates, it is rea-
sonable to assume that the loans should be
treated as either a dividends or compensa-
tion paid to employees and be considered
taxable income for income," the VI Unity
Day Group wrote. "The result of the loans
to officers by the companies is that riders
are essentially paying interest charges on
that borrowing being passed on through in-
creased rates."
The PSC used unallowable costs in its de-
termining reasonable rates for the franchi-
sees, according to the letter.


Time Share Purchase
"Audited financial statements for Varlack
Ventures Inc. show that the company pur-
chased a time-share condominium in 2000
and continues to pay principal and inter-
est on a 10-year loan," according to the VI
Unity Day Group's letter. "It is unclear why
the interest and any other recurring costs on
a time-share condominium should be borne
by the riders under the company's franchise
agreement with the government."
"Because the commission relied on unal-
lowable and ineligible expenses in determin-
ing rates, the rates are therefore unreason-
able and unlawful and must be repealed,"
the Unity Day Group wrote.
Accounting Is Not Uniform
The accounting records provided by the
ferry companies are not uniform and should
not be relied on to support their claim of
losses, according to the letter.
"Non-franchise operation expenses have
been included in franchise operation ex-
penses in determining 'reasonable' rates,"
according to the group's letter. "There
should be no reason for not being able to
easily allocate some costs directly between
franchise and non-franchise operations."
Burden of Proof Not Met
The Unity Day Group also contends that
the PSC approved rates which are discrimi-
natory, unjust and unreasonable. Since the
PSC relied on erroneous financial reports in
setting new rates, those rates can only be un-
reasonable, according to the letter.
"The franchisees, therefore, could not
have met even minimum requirements for

It was all smiles - almost - as St. John Montessori students performed for the crowd
during the grand opening ceremony at the school.


Parents, Friends, Dignitaries Celebrate

Opening of St. John Montessori School


By Tom Oat
St. John Tradewinds
With songs, speeches and smiles - and a few tears
- the island's newest school, St. John Montessori
School, celebrated its official grand opening on Tues-
day, April 14, at the John's Folly Learning Institute.
Parents, friends and dignitaries joined St. John
Montessori School Director and Teacher Debra Po-
lucci. The crowd was also treated to a performance
by the 16 students of the new school which has taken
shape in the one-room classroom which formerly
housed the public school for the East End of the is-
land.
Revered St. John educator Guy H. Benjamin, a
special guest speaker in the lineup of dignitaries and
supporters, regaled the audience with memories of his
first teaching position at the Horace Mann School -
"where I was the boss," he said.
"It's my pleasure to come home," said Benjamin,
who has become a regular visitor to the Montessori
school.
Benjamin recalled living at the school during the
week and traveling to his family home on the East
End of St. John which is visible across the entrance to
Coral Bay from the John's Folly school.
John's Folly Learning Institute founder Alvis Chris-
tian welcomed the Montessori school as an important
aspect of JFLI's on-going efforts to bring education
programs to the remote southeastern end of St. John.
JFLI has focused on after-school and summer pro-
grams since Christian formed the non-profit institute
and renovated the abandoned school. The learning in-
stitute will celebrate its 13th anniversary in May.
V.I. Department of Education Commissioner Dr.
LaVerne Terry, who represented First Lady Cecile de-
Jongh, praised the value of early learning programs.


Guy H. Benjamin, who used to teach at
the building, spoke during the event.

Other dignitaries and speakers included Senator
Wayne James and Senator at Large Craig Barshinger.
St. Thomian Eric Zucker, who attended St. Thomas
Montessori as a child and has a child at St. John Mon-
tessori, was the opening speaker.
In her remarks, Polucci thanked parents and friends
of St. John Montessori, including co-founder Amelia
Jones who is no longer affiliated with the for-profit
early education program.
The St. John Montessori School teaches students
from 2 1/2 to 5 years old and is licensed by the Virgin
Islands government to enroll 26 children from ages 2
1/2 to 8 years old.

St. John Man Arrested for Possession,

Intent To Distribute Crack Cocaine


Ivan "Cookie" Chinnery

Sentenced to 15 Years

for Sexual Offense of Girl
St. John Tradewinds
V.I. Superior Court Judge Brenda Hollar sentenced a St. John
man Tuesday, April 14, to a total of fifteen years behind bars for
his conviction on two counts of Unlawful Sexual Contact with a
minor.
On February 18, 2009, a jury found 49-year-old Ivan "Cookie"
Chinnery guilty of using force or coercion in the unlawful sexual
contact with 13-year-old girl, who was on her way to school on St.
John on the morning of January 16, 2008.
Chinnery's prior felony conviction of Burglary in the Second
Degree in 2003 made him eligible for Habitual Offender treatment,
which Judge Hollar applied during sentencing last week.
The Habitual Offender Statute (VI.C. Title 14 � 61) mandates
that whoever has been convicted of a felony offense shall, upon
a subsequent conviction of a felony, be incarcerated for a term of
imprisonment of not less than 10 years and may be incarcerated for
the remainder of his natural life.
Judge Hollar sentenced Chinnery to a term of 15 years for each
count of Unlawful Sexual Contact with a minor to run concur-
rently. Chinnery will be eligible for parole after he serves the first
10 years of his sentence.
Chinnery will be required to register his name on the Virgin Is-
lands Sexual Registry maintained by the V.I. Department of Justice
upon his release from prison, pursuant to VI.C. Title 14 Chapter
86.


apartment officer Dennis Vanterpool
said a woman called police claim-
ing her boyfriend was taking items
off her porch without permission,
according to a published report.
After finding Reichel coming
out of the bathroom of an unnamed
restaurant, VIPD found "six bags
of crack cocaine and one bag of
crack cocaine inside a plastic con-
tainer," Vanterpool was quoted in
the Virgin Islands Daily News.
After his arrest, Reichel waived
his rights and admitted the drugs


were his, according to the report.
The Estate Bethany man said he
had just moved out of his girl-
friend's house where he'd been
living for more than a year and
was taking his property, according
to the V.I. Daily News report.
After hearing testimony, Myers
dismissed the trespassing charge
but upheld the possession with in-
tent to distribute charge. Reichel's
bail was set at $10,000, of which
he was able to pay 10 percent. His
arraignment is set for April 23.

AARP Members Get Tourist-eye View of Love City's Ocean World


By Susan Mann
St. John Tradewinds
There was a jam packed agenda and
nearly every seat was filled at the monthly
St. John AARP meeting on Thursday eve-
ning, April 16, at the Nazareth Lutheran
Church hall in Cruz Bay.
Three guest speakers were on hand to
address the membership, Representative
Gil Hash of the USVI Medical Air Services
Association (MASA), and Fern LaBorde,
Executive Director of American Cancer
Society, USVI Unit, both of St. Thomas,
and St. John marine ecologist Dr. Caroline
Rogers.
Hash updated the group on the variety
of off-island medical transportation servic-
es MASA now offers, including an option
which allows patients to be flown directly
to the mainland for care.
Annual membership costs can be paid
on a monthly deduction basis, rather than
paid in one payment. The average cost of
an air ambulance starts at about $10,000.
Participation in MASA is open to the gen-
eral public.
LaBorde described the services offered
by the USVI Cancer Society to St. John
residents who have been diagnosed with
cancer, including help with the costs of
transportation to treatment centers or as-
sistance with paying for costly medication


Dr. Caroline Rogers presents an underwater photography slide show at
last Thursday's St. John AARP chapter meeting.


which is not covered by insurance.
LaBorde hopes to organize a "Relay
for Life" in Love City. Residents from St.
John have been participating in the event
on St. Thomas and St. Croix has hosted


its own race as well. The St. Thomas re-
lay has raised about $200,000, which helps
provide extra care for cancer patients in the
district.
"Many patients need what the Cancer


Society has to offer, but don't know this
type of help is there," said LaBorde. "We
want to get the word out."
Rogers delighted everyone with a slide
presentation of the under sea world sur-
rounding Love City. After a careful review
and explanation of coral growth, Rog-
ers showed the crowd some of the varied
creatures of the sea she encounters on an
average day of marine research and ocean
photography.
"The mangroves are fish nurseries," said
Rogers.
One particularly amusing underwater
picture Rogers shared was taken as she
looked toward the ocean surface, and in-
cluded two legs of a frantically swimming
pelican and the sinking, bottom portion of
its beak filled beyond capacity with fish.
Rogers has seen squid swimming in for-
mation, lined up from largest to smallest,
she explained.
"I'm not saying they do math, but they
did know how to do that somehow," she
said.
The marine biologist concluded her pre-
sentation with assurances that much of the
sea life seen in the pictures could be spot-
ted very close to the beaches.
"You don't have to be a diver to be able
to see all of this," said Rogers. "Much of it
is within a few feet of shore."

New Regulations for Hurricane Hole


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
There will be no waiting in a long line for three
days or a motorized race into Hurricane Hole this year
for a storm berth.
Virgin Islands National Park and Coral Reef Na-
tional Monument officials are implementing new reg-
ulations for the 2009 hurricane season and beyond.
If a vessel owner was issued a permit in 2008 for a
storm mooring location in Hurricane Hole and wants
to keep the same location for 2009, the vessel owner
should notify the park by written response to Rafe
Boulon, VINP's Chief of Resource Management via:
email to rafe_boulon@nps.gov; letter to 1300 Cruz
Bay Creek, St. John 00830); or fax to 693-9500 or
693-9301, prior to May 15, 2009.
Vessel owners may also drop off a written response
at the Visitor Center in Cruz Bay. All correspondences
should be addressed to Boulon.
All vessel owners who submit written notification
will then have until May 29, to renew their permit
for that location by going to the VINP offices at Lind
Point and filling out an application. This option only
exists for those with valid permits issued in 2008.
For those who do not want to retain their location
and want to take their chances in a drawing, any spots
not reissued by May 29 will be available for the lot-
tery on June 6. The drawing should discourage boat-
ers from lining up outside the VINP office 48 hours
ahead of time, as occurred in years past, explained
Boulon.
The drawing will include the additional 26 storm
mooring berths in Princess Bay and Otter Creek in-
stalled in late 2008. The drawing will be at 8 a.m. on
June 6 at the VINP ball field in Cruz Bay.
All participants will need to be there by 8 a.m. to
fill out a card to be placed in a box from which the
cards will be drawn randomly. Storm mooring sites
will be assigned based on vessel requirements and
available spots.
"This is similar to what we did with the first come,
first served in the past," said Boulon. "We had the
people in the front of the line come look at the map
and then look at their boat size and depth needs, etc.
to determine a good spot for them. That's just what
we'll be doing this year, but instead of first come, first
served, it will be a drawing."
"It's a fairer way of getting people to the table
without people being there days in advance," Boulon
said.

"We want to impress on people
if they are going to leave gear
they will lose their spots or be
fined."
- Rafe Boulon,
Chief of Resource Management
Virgin Islands National Park


Last year, VINP officials decided to open Hurri-
cane Hole at 9 a.m. on an appointed day and issue
storm berth permits on a fist come, first served basis
on-site. While that plan sounded logical, it resulted
in a mad dash as boaters jockeyed for position at the
mouth of each Hurricane Hole and raced to their de-
sired storm berth as VINP officials watched.
Although many boaters agreed that last year's plan
was not ideal, most vessel owners were pleased with
their locations, explained Boulon.
"I never heard any complaints about where people
ended up last year," Boulon. "I definitely heard com-
plaints about the process, but not the spots people got.
So far, the feedback to the new regulations has been
very positive."
After vessel owners notify the park and then stop
by the Lind Point Offices to fill out the actual appli-
cation, Hurricane Hole will still not be opened until
later in the season, Boulon explained.
"We'll be marking all spots in Hurricane Hole, just
like in the past, by early June," said the VINP chief of
resource management. "So people shouldn't just go
out to their spot and mark it after they get their permit.
We won't have people going out there and putting
gear down until we get more into the season."
VINP officials will be cracking down on vessel
owners who leave gear behind after hurricane season,
Boulon added.
"We had 16 boats that left gear behind last year,"
said Boulon. "It took seven people and three boats
to get everything out. It's just getting worse and
worse."
Vessel owners who left gear behind last year will
be issued a written warning and all future violations
will be subject to penalties, including fines and pos-
sible exclusion from Hurricane Hole.
"We want to impress on people if they are going
to leave gear they will lose their spots or be fined,"
said Boulon.

empty space next door, at left. The gym is set re-open.


A Little Shuffling and Re-opening at The Marketplace


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Tenants at The Marketplace will
be shuffling around next month as
new management takes over the
Mail Center and Gym in Paradise
re-opens under new leadership.
After closing its doors in
March, Gym in Paradise has left
Love City's fitness savvy out in
the cold. The gym will re-open in
May under new - or old - man-
agement.
Mark Dallas bought the gym
in January 2008 and originally
intended to move to St. John to


run the operation. Plans changed,
however, and Dallas was unable
to relocate to Love City. A series
of setbacks put the business in the
red and left Dallas scrambling for
rent.
Dallas hoped to lure new mem-
bership to re-open the gym, but
plans changed again and now the
original managers Kate and Jim
Swan and Terry and Tommy Ber-
tolino, owners of St. John Hard-
ware, will be running the gym
once again.
With a return to the original
management, customers can ex-


pect a return to the service which
lagged for several months before
the gym closed its doors.
"We're excited to have the gym
re-open and it will come back bet-
ter than it was before," said Deb-
bie Marsh, Marketplace manager.
"The new management will ensure
the gym is reliable and returns to
the great service it provided be-
fore. It will no longer be run under
Dallas Enterprises."
New Mail Center Owner

Marketplace, ADM Wireless will
be moving across the courtyard to

the former Island Headquarters lo-
cation - which has sat vacant for
more than a year - as it takes over
management of The Mail Center.
In addition to keeping the cur-
rent mail service available, ADM
will offer business services as
well, explained owner Trevor Ad-
ams.
"Our plan is to improve on the
services that are already being pro-
vided by adding a business center
so people will be able to come in
and use their lap tops and print or
use the computers there," said Ad-
ams. "We'll maintain the current


mail service and just try to provide
more valuable services that people
need."
ADM Wireless will take over
the Mail Center in May, and will
occupy the empty space next door
in June. Adams was looking for
another business opportunity when
the Mail Center became available,
he explained.
"I was interested in opening
a mail service in Red Hook but
a competitor opened over there
and then this opportunity became
available and I jumped at it," Ad-
ams said.

Learn Healthy Living at Women

With Focus Seminar on April 24


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
In celebration of its tenth an-
niversary, a women's health ini-
tiative group called Women With
Focus is hosting its first Love
City seminars on St. John this
week.
The group was founded by St.
Croix-native Janice Mathurin af-
ter a series of health scares made
her turn her own life around.
"The program focuses on
healthy eating and how women
can empower themselves," said
Mathurin, a certified nutritionist.
"I was a nurse for 21 yeas and
after going through various chal-
lenges with my own health, I had
a stroke and a massive heart at-
tack. I was only in my 30s when
this happened and it was a real
wake up call for me."
"I saw that if I didn't make
changes, I was going to be in
real trouble," Mathurin said. "I
have four daughters and a son
and how could I be good to them
if I wasn't even being good to


myself. So I decided to work on
fixing myself and then to make
it my business and life's work to
help others too."
Mathurin is hosting two work-
shops on St. John this week.
She'll focus on senior health on

Chef Ben Brezic explained the benefits of culinary careers to GHS students last week.


Students Learn Culinary Career Opportunities


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
A former St. John chef was back
on island last week spreading the
word about his profession to Gifft
Hill School students.
Ben Brezic, who manned the
kitchen at La Tapa and designed
the kitchen at Pastory Gardens, is
now a chef instructor at the New
England Culinary Institute's Burl-
ington, Vermont campus.
With 12 years of cooking under


his belt, including eight years on
St. John and two years on a private
yacht, Brezic and his wife were
looking for something different.
"I got married last fall and my
wife and I decided we wanted
something a little more stable,"
said Brezic. "We were looking
for work when the instructor job
opened up and I love it."
The New England Culinary In-
stitute offers a two year associate
degree and a four year bachelor

CBCC and Chamber Chapter


Working To Improve Signage


By Kate Norfleet
St. John Tradewinds
The St. John Chapter of the
St. Thomas/St. John Chamber of
Commerce hosted a joint meeting
with the Coral Bay Community
Council on Tuesday, April 14.
CBCC president Sharon Cold-
ren announced that Joe Mina has
been hired as a storm water engi-
neer with funds from a $300,000
Environmental Protection Agency
grant the group received to tackle
storm water issues.
Congratulations to CBCC for
the progress on this grant and to
all of the businesses, restaurants
and villas who so graciously con-
tributed to Mina and his family's
warm welcome.
A Coral Bay Shoreline Cleanup
is scheduled for Saturday, May
2, from 9 to 11 am. There will be
three focal points for the cleanup,
the inner harbor beach area, the
mangroves and the debris on the
eastern shore of Coral Bay harbor.
Participants should bring gloves
and water. No tools are needed as
there will be no brush clearing.
Anyone interested in volunteer-
ing or seeking more information
should contact Coldren at 776-


2099.
There is a new property manag-
er for the Moravian Church prop-
erty in Coral Bay so changes may
be in the works. CBCC has orga-
nized a committee to liaison with
the manager on issues which may
affect businesses and groups using
the ball field and other sections of
the property.
Any Coral Bay businesses inter-
ested in getting involved, should
contact Chamber of Commerce
St. John Board of Director mem-
ber Kate Norfleet at 693-9099 or
CBCC.
One main focus of the group
is improved signage, a project al-
ready underway for all of St. John
with a chapter committee headed
by Debbie Hime.
Mark Hardgrove, Superinten-
dent of VI National Park, present-
ed a very informative and positive
report on the status of the park and
his success at gaining access to
grant money and special funds to
complete many of the projects.
Additionally, the number of vol-
unteer hours contributed to main-
taining trails and sites throughout
the park has been growing all the
time. Hardgrove's personal ap-


proach and commitment to the
park and to the whole community
is impressive.
Norfleet announced that the
venue for the St. Thomas/St. John
Chamber of Commerce Wilbur
"Bill" LaMotta Community Ser-
vice Awards Dinner Dance will be
at St. Peter Great House.
The event will now be on June

Letters to St. John Tradewinds


Cops Meet Quotas by Issuing Unnecessary Tickets


Editor,
After reading the letter regarding Officer Call-
wood, I felt compelled to write about my experiences
with the V.I. Police Department.
It seems that at the end of every month, they (the
VIPD) come to Coral Bay to issue tickets for whatever
reason they can find. They hold road blocks and stop
everyone just to find any excuse to issue a ticket.
They are by no means friendly, and as Mary wrote
in her letter, "they only harass private citizens in the
name of public safety."
There are drugs being sold and everyone knows
where, but would the cops go check it out? No. Be-
cause not having a spare tire on your car is more dan-
gerous to the community than selling drugs.
I drove back and forth through Coral Bay one Sat-


urday afternoon, when I was pulled over by Officer
Hodge. He issued me a ticket for not having a spare
tire. A week later I went to get my car inspected and
passed with no spare tire. Go figure.
They have a certain quota to meet and the easiest
way to do it is to come to Coral Bay. Funny how when
we called the police to come to Shipwreck Landing
the night one of the locals showed up outside the res-
taurant with a gun pointing at the dinner crowd, the
VIPD were too busy to come "all the way out there"
because it was carnival and they were short handed.
I would also like to ask who gives these officers
guns and badges?

Residents Still Have a Say in New Plan for Creek


Dear Editor,
St. John residents must realize that there are two
off-island forces at work to limit our marine resourc-
es, our parking, and therefore our business.
These two forces are US Homeland Security and
the St. Thomas/St John Port Authority.
Homeland Security is in the process of closing the
entire Creek Harbor to access by our private citizens
by land and by sea.
Have you noticed the loss of dozens of our park-
ing spaces there? The entire Creek Harbor is being
designated a 105, or secure area, for the use by Com-
mercial Vessels only, like the dock at Cruz Bay.
The Creek Harbor has been under local control for
time immemorial for use by our neighbors and our
families. Some portion of it must remain so. And the
plan is not finished yet. We still have a say.
Local Port Authority officers have bent over back-
wards in their efforts to provide services like dockage
and parking for our needs. Kudos to them! But their


efforts are limited by the fact that the top administra-
tors of the Port Authority are located in St Thomas.
These administrators are not villains, but need in-
put from us concerning St. John marine and land us-
age needs. We need to contact them and express our
wishes for this usage.
Steve Black has promoted simple plans for both the
Creek Harbor and Enighed Pond Harbor that would
create parking, allow usage by our private boats and
ease congestion in Cruz Bay. He may not be a mem-
ber of the Robert deJongh Architectural Firm, but
Bob deJongh is sensitive to local community wishes
when they are expressed.
Express your wishes to: Honorable Gov. John
deJongh Jr at contact@governordeJongh.com; Port
Authority Ex. Dir Kenn Hobson at khobson@viport.
com; or Chairman, Port Auth. Gov. Board at bdonas-
torg@viport.com.
Thank you,
Craig Friedenberg


Pine Peace Mini Mart Added To Food Basket Survey


St. John Tradewinds
The Department of Licensing and Consumer Af-
fairs conducted its latest territory-wide food basket
survey during the last week of March.
The food basket survey is designed to inform con-
sumers on which stores have the best prices on staple
grocery items.The number of items compared on each
island varies due to the fact that a comparison can
only be valid if each store carries the same items.
St. John
On St. John three stores were surveyed. Typically
the survey compares two stores - Dolphin Market
and Starfish Market - however Pine Peace Mini
Mart was added to the March survey.
The new addition to the survey offered the lowest
priced food basket at $55.13. The results were $1.76


cheaper than Starfish Market at $56.91 and $5.60
cheaper than Dolphin Market at $60.73. All three
stores were compared using a 24 item list
St. Thomas
On St. Thomas four stores were surveyed; Pueblo
in Long Bay and Sub Base, Plaza Extra, and Food
Center were all compared using a food basket of the
same items.
The best deal for all 30 items of the family food
basket was found at Pueblo Long Bay with a total
of $88.76. Pueblo's Sub Base store came in at an
extremely close second place with a food basket of
$88.84, a difference of .08 cents between the two
stores. From the February food basket survey, it was
observed that the Pueblo supermarkets on St. Thomas
were leading the way in uniform pricing.

Command Incident Log, an unofficial record of calls to the station, reports and arrests on St. John.

of the East End


St. John Tradewinds
On a recent walk through the
East End, I got to observe the tour-
ists driving out to the end of the
road and quickly returning back
to "civilization" as they know it. I
wonder if they gained an apprecia-
tion of the landscape as much as
they did the awesome seascapes.
Hopefully they saw the "subtle
beauty" that one of our local bota-
nists, Eleanor Gibney, describes in
her recent book "Native Trees and
Plants of East End, St. John," not
just the catch and keep. Too often
the shocking colors of bougainvil-
leas and other imported plants are
considered to be the norm.
Gibney continues to inform the
public about local landscapes. She
is currently consulting with the Es-
tate Fish Bay Owners' Association
to establish a native plant dem-
onstration area where people can
see trees and plants that naturally
populate our environs. The Virgin
Islands Department of Agriculture
has given the association a grant to
help establish this area which will
eventually be open to all St. John
residents.
Not only does the natural en-
vironment of the East End have
lessons for us all but also the
people who settled and lived there
are examples for us to follow on
community spirit, an appreciation
of the uncomplicated life and a
deeper appreciation of what is re-
ally important. The natural land-
scape belies the many industrial
and commercial endeavors that
were engaged in by the inhabitants
of East End to Coral Bay.
A review of deeds in the Cadas-
tral's Office shows that St. Thomas
merchants held title to large tracts
of land in this area. These lands
were used to mine sand and gravel
for construction on St. Thomas, to
manufacture lime for cement, and
to make charcoal (the propane of
yesteryear).
It's ironic that "coal" was made
here to fuel the cooking stoves of
St. Thomas and Puerto Rico. For
example, the Lockhart Develop-
ment Company had extensive

holdings on St. John and an agent
who would oversee the distribu-
tion of sand and gravel orders to
East Enders who would gather the
materials and transport them to St.
Thomas.
It would seem that there was
plenty of land on St. Thomas to
conduct this business. The road
system, however, had not been de-
veloped as yet and trucks were not
available.
The best way to understand the
types of people who lived on the
East End is to take an in-depth
look at two of its thought leaders.
Thought leaders and top of the
head awareness are just marketing
terms for exploring the heart of a
community.
Alice Maude Harley and Cap-
tain Moses Harley represented all
that was good on the East End.
Their innate dignity reflected the
peace they shared with themselves
and their neighbors. The Harleys
were born in the last decade of the
19th century and passed in the late
1970s
The Captain, born on Brit-
ish Thatch Island, was raised at
Mary's Point and educated at Em-
maus and on the sea. Moses began
working on Lovango clearing pas-
ture. His uncle Joseph introduced
him to seafaring where he spent
most of his time. He went to the
states and worked as a seaman


visiting Florida, New York, Texas,
Alabama, Cuba, Jamaica, Mexico
and Canada.
Moses returned home in 1939.
He grew crops of ground provi-
sions. He fished with his seine
net. This was a community effort
which involved the people who
handled the net and those who
drove the fish into the nets. Others
helped to salt the excess fish. Even
those who were unable to work
shared in the catch.
Captain Harley's boat was
called the Golden Dawn. This sin-
gle-masted Tortolan sloop sailed to
St. Thomas, St Croix and Tortola.
Alice Maude Harley, nee Chin-
nery, went to Antigua for teacher
training and worked at the East
End School for 30 years. The
Harleys made it a point to search
out newcomers and to make those
people feel welcomed.
Maude is quoted as saying
"All who come are nice people"
to which the Captain added "No
Kick" meaning "no complaint."
Her hurricane advice was always
timely. She said after the house is
closed, "Some people sing, some
pray. You sit quietly and wait on
God's mercy."
I've met stateside East Enders
who came to know the Harleys
over 40 years ago and still speak
of them with reverence and deep
respect.

as required under Section 24 of
Title 30 of the VI Code and under
which the franchisees are solely
responsible for establishing that
burden of proof," the Unity Day
Group wrote.
Rates Discrimnate Against
Red Hook Riders
The rates are discriminatory
against the Red Hook riders be-


cause they are subsidizing the
Cruz Bay to Charlotte Amalie run,
according to the St. John group.
"Despite the Charlotte Amalie
route being more than 30 times the
distance of the Red Hook route,
adult passengers on the former will
only pay 14 percent higher rates,"
according to the Unity Day Group
letter. "Removing the fuel sur-
charge is resulting in a reduction
of rates for the Charlotte Amalie
riders, yet a substantial increase in
rates for the two largest ridership
groups (commuters and adults) on
the Red Hook route."


Culinary Career Oppurtunity

of about eight to one, the New England Culinary In-
stitute offers hands-on learning and a commitment to
sustainable cuisine, Brezic explained.
"There is a real emphasis on fresh local products
and ingredients," he said. "The school is dedicated to
reducing the carbon footprint by smart food practices.
We have such amazing access to products up there
fresh from the farm."
Brezic shared his zeal for the culinary arts with
GHS students during a presentation on Friday morn-
ing, April 17.
"I gave a presentation to the students to show them
an alternative to the conventional college experi-
ence," said Brezic. "A lot of kids here live alterna-
tive lifestyles on the beach so I thought an alternative
school might fit well. It's a great career and the kids
really enjoyed the presentation."

program places students in internships at the end of


"This is in effect a subsidy pro-
vided to the much fewer riders on
the Charlotte Amalie route at the
expense of the many more riders
on the Red Hook route," the group
wrote. "The rates for the Charlotte
Amalie and Red Hook route are
therefore unreasonable, discrimi-
natory and not supported by any
route cost analysis presented to or
documented by the commission."
The group hopes to hear a re-
sponse from the commission
shortly and retains its right to ap-
peal the PSC's final action in VI

their second year. Through his contacts in St. John
kitchens, Brezic has positioned three students in in-
ternships on Love City, at La Tapa and Waterfront
Bistro.
"The food scene down here is great with all the
abundance of fresh seafood and tropical fruits," said
Brezic. "Working here and being a chef here, the is-
land has always had an issue with a lack of talent to
work in all these great restaurants. I thought I could
get the school involved with the island and develop a
relationship with providing talented labor while pro-
viding the kids with outstanding opportunities."
Brezic still loves cooking and recommends the
career for anyone looking to put a smile on people's
faces.
"I love making people happy and taking care of
people," said Brezic. "Seeing that look of bliss on
people's faces when they take a bite of some of my
food is a memorable experience and is what I still
love about cooking."

2009 Learn It! Summer Enrich-
ment Program has passed.
Department of Education Su-
perintendent Jeanette Smith-Barry
asks parents whose children have
been referred for the program to
immediately submit their applica-
tions to the respective school or at
the Curriculum Center in Tutu to
ensure their enrollment.
The program, sponsored by the
VI Department of Education, is


geared toward helping students to
improve their skills in reading and
math.
"The program has been ex-
tended and expanded this year
beginning on June 22 and ending
on July 30," said Smith. "Students
will be actively engaged in a series
of activities both academic and en-
tertaining from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Monday through Fridays."
Enrollment in the program is
at no cost and targets students
who received basic or below basic
scores on last year's VITAL tests.
There will be rewards for good
attendance and for those students


who successfully complete the six
week program, Smith explained.
"There are several schools that
have not submitted any applica-
tions thus far and we do not want
students attending these schools to
lose out on this meaningful and fun
opportunity to learn," the superin-
tendent said. "This free enrichment
program will be supported by the
federal Summer Food Service Pro-
gram, providing breakfast, lunch
and a snack for its participants as
well as bus transportation will be
provided to and from each site."

the District Offices at 775-2250.

By Joseph Tsidulko St. John Tradewinds and a misstep by prosecutors could result in a new trial for the only man convicted of the 2007 murder of Jamie Cockayne — a crime that cast a harsh national spotlight on St. John and the Virgin Islands justice system. V.I. Superior Court Judge Brenda Hollar heard arguments Friday, April 18, requesting another trial for Jahlil Ward based on new evidence — statements from at least four witnesses who claim they heard Ward’s codefendant, Kamal Thomas, confess to stabbing Cockayne in Cruz Bay and leaving the 21-year-old Pennsylvania man for dead. Hollar said she is likely to grant the new trial because prosecutors failed to turn over one of those statements, which was document ed in a police report the government had in its possession well before the murder trial began in October 2008. not to grant a new trial,” Hollar told prosecutors. Ward, 20, was convicted more than half a year ago of stabbing to death Cockayne behind a wooden construction partition near Fashion Palace soon after Cockayne left the Front Yard bar in the early morning hours of June 19, 2007. Cockayne was living on St. John while waiting for his immigration papers to clear so he could take a job as a sailing instructor at Bitter End Yacht Club on Virgin Gorda. Ward’s codefendants, Thomas and Anselmo Boston, 32, were acquitted of all murder charges, but the jury found Thomas and Boston guilty of two counts of thirddegree assault against Cockayne, and two counts of using dangerous a wooden 2-by-4. The judge has since reduced one assault charge against each man to a misdemean or and thrown out the weapons convictions. Cockayne was stabbed about a half-hour after the altercation with Thomas and Boston at Front Yard. The two were angry because Cockayne kicked Boston’s girlfriend’s vehicle, according to their state ments to police. Eyewitnesses tesCockayne outside of the bar. Ward’s attorney, Michael Quinn, for a new trial based on three witnesses whose existence came to light after the trial. Quinn said it wasn’t until Wednesday, April 15, that prosecuof a witness who told police he heard a confession from Thomas. motion arguing the withholding was a violation of a legal precedent that requires the government to provide defense attorneys with all potential exculpatory evidence. that motion minutes before Friday’s hearing. The judge described it as “a bombshell.” Withheld Statement On September 12, 2007, police interviewed Daryl Martens, who had been in jail with Thomas before the 19-year-old was released under conditions of house arrest while awaiting trial. Martens told police “Six-pack” – Thomas’ nickname – admitted to him he was the assailant who killed Cockayne and shared some details about the crime. Prosecutors provided the defense with almost 500 pages of documents before the trial as part of the discovery process, “and this is the one they don’t give us,” Quinn told Judge Hollar, adding he was not accusing the Attorney conduct. In his motion, however, Quinn wrote, “Clearly, the Martens notes were suppressed by the People.” Assistant Attorney General Renee Gumbs-Carty accepted blame for the withholding of the notes, but said it was an unintentional er ror which resulted from the sheer volume of paperwork involved in the case. Gumbs-Carty argued the error did not affect the outcome of new trial. Gumbs-Carty said she learned Quinn never got a copy of Mar tens’ statement while she was preparing for Friday’s hearing, and she immediately sent the defense attorney the document. The prosecutor reminded the court that multiple witnesses who al in October directly implicated Ward in the stabbing. Some of those witnesses said Ward confessed to them, others said they saw Ward immediately after the crime with blood speckles on his clothes. Quinn argued at the trial those witnesses were part of a plot or chestrated by Thomas to frame Ward. He reminded the judge Friday it was Thomas’ attorney who brought his client to the attention of law enforcement and who provided authorities with the witnesses and evidence that ultimately resulted in Ward’s arrest. New Witnesses On January 12, before the Mar tion seeking a new trial based on three witnesses who he learned of after Ward’s conviction. He called two of those men to the stand at Friday’s hearing. Donald Lee said he spoke with Thomas on Commandant Gade in St. Thomas several months before the murder trial. Lee said he invited Thomas to get a drink, but Thomas declined, pointing out his ankle bracelet and explaining he was under house arrest. At that point, Lee refused to answer any more of Quinn’s questions, telling a Superior Court Marshall he did not want to continue testifying. Quinn then treated Lee as a hostile witness, asking him directly if Thomas told him he was under house arrest because he committed the St. John murder. Lee remained silent during a barrage of questions, at one point telling Quinn: “Mr. Thomas is not my friend, but I’m not selling him out.” But after a few minutes, Lee admitted to the stabbing. Some point after the conversation with Thomas, Lee was ar rested on a statutory rape charge. He met Ward in jail and relayed details of the conversation with Thomas, according to Quinn. The second witness who testi Neal Sprauve Jr., Ward’s distant cousin, said he went to a St. John beach with Thomas and two tourist girls a couple days after Cockayne’s murder and he asked Thomas if he was involved in the recent crime that people on island were talking about. Thomas told him to keep his voice down and then in a low voice Sprauve said he did not initially provide police with that infor mation because he feared being branded as a snitch. He said he ultimately came forward because he did not want to see Ward, who he has known since childhood, spend the rest of his life in prison for a crime that he did not commit. Sprauve said coming forward has put him in constant fear for his life, adding he has been getting death threats in jail. Family’s Crusade The continuing legal arguments and new revelations in the case young victim’s family. For nearly two years, the Cockaynes have pursued justice for their loved one by working to focus media atten tion on the case and keep pressure on local authorities, who they crit icized on national television in the aftermath of the crime. The family believed that after the verdict was read October 10 inside a charged courtroom, they were close to seeing the end of the legal ordeal. Outside the same courtroom on Friday, Bill Cockayne, Jamie’s father, said with every trip he has made to the Caribbean since the trial, he has seen the case unravel. The series of court proceedings, none of which are bringing the case closer to a sentence hear ing, have been “very trying” on his family, Bill Cockayne said. The family believes Ward, Thomas and Boston all acted in concert the night of the slaying, and all deserve punishment. Attorneys for Thomas and Boston argued their clients were in a bar, but had nothing to do with the stabbing. They directed blame at Ward throughout the trial. But Quinn said his client is “an innocent guy, convicted of murder and going away for life.” “He’s entitled to a fair trial,” Quinn told Hollar on Friday. The judge must now decide whether Martens’ statement, along with testimony from the recently discovered witnesses, would have created a reasonable probability of a different outcome at the trial had they had been made available to the defense. If so, Ward will get a second chance to defend himself, and the Cockaynes again will wonder if they will ever see someone held accountable for their son’s death.

By Jaime Elliott St. John Tradewinds A Tennessee man visiting St. John last week didn’t even make it to his rental villa before an attack by several young men in downtown Cruz Bay sent him to the emergency room with an empty wallet. After being separated from his family, the 54-year-old man ar rived on Love City on the 12 a.m. ferry from Red Hook and walked down the street to Joe’s Diner looking for a taxi to the Westin Resort and Villas. Instead of getting directions to a taxi or a ride to his family’s villa, however, the man was jumped, robbed and severely beaten around 12:46 a.m. on Sunday morning, April 12. cation and I caught the last ferry here,” he said. “I walked off the dock and around to where Joe’s Diner is and I was asking for directions to a taxi or the Westin. My memory is that a group of young taxi and it turned into something else real quick.” “I felt someone trying to get the wallet out of my pants and I had a computer and briefcase too,” said the Tennessee man. “I was trying to hold onto my wallet and my briefcase when, to the best of my recollection, one of the men punched me in face and I got kicked several times. They managed to get my wallet and all I know is that both of my arms were being restrained.” The beating left the tourist with a sprained leg and ankle, a fractured nose, a fractured left eye socket and a number of cuts and abrasions. He’ll need reconstructive surgery on his eye socket when the swelling goes down to avoid further injuries. After stumbling out of the car park area next to Joe’s Diner, the Tennessee man made it to the parking lot at FirstBank before losing consciousness. “I was in and out of consciousness,” he said. “I was aware of things most of the time, but I was really upset.” The man was admitted to Myrah Keating Smith Community Health Center at 2:12 a.m. on Sunday morning, April 12, where it was reported that he had been assaulted by more than one assailant, according to Schneider Regional Medical Center spokesperson Sam Topp. “He had injury to his nose, a swollen left eyebrow, and complained of pain from the facial injuries,” said Topp. “However, he refused to cooperate by consenting to treatment or transfer to R.L. Schneider Hospital on St. Thomas. Apparently, he was verbally combative and abusive, according to staff, and was allowed to leave the facility on his own without recommended treatment.” The next day on Monday after noon, April 13, however, the man admitted himself to R.L. Schneider Hospital, Topp added. “He reported to the Emergency Room at RLS Monday afternoon, April 13, with a broken nose — which he said had been broken several times before — an orbital fracture (damage to the bone under the eyebrow), multiple abrasions and contusions about the face, and an abrasion on the shin,” said Topp. “His injuries were diagnosed and treated. With medication, he was discharged several hours later, around 4:30 p.m.” While the attack was reportedly caught on video surveillance cameras outside of Meada’s Plaza, it remains uncertain how clear of a recording it is. V.I. Police Departincident and expect to make an arrest shortly, according to VIPD Commissioner James McCall. “I am outraged by this senseless attack and robbery of a visitor to the U.S. Virgin Islands,” McCall said. “We have very positive leads and I expect an arrest in very short order. I am also appealing to anyone in the community who witnessed this to please contact the police or Crime Stoppers.” While the tourist called the incident “unfortunate,” it didn’t sour his impression of St. John. “I’m recovering but it’s really unfortunate what happened,” said the Tennessee man. “My family owns a time-share at the Westin and I’ve heard so many great things about St. John, my wife and I were thinking of looking for something to buy. That will have to wait for another trip because I haven’t seen much of the island this time.” Responses from police and the public have made a difference for the tourist, he added. “The police were very professional and everyone, including dispatchers, has been very compassionate,” said the man. “I’ve been getting all kinds of apologies from people who don’t need to apologize. Despite my reservations about safety, my fears are being offset by all the responses I’m getting from people.” Anyone with information regarding the assault and robbery should call the VIPD’s major crimes unit at 715-5518, McCall’s pers at 1-800-222-8477.4 St. John Tradewinds, April 20-26, 2009 ber Open 7 Nights a Week Open 7 Days 693.7755 or www.latapastjohn.com Inter-Island Boat Services, Inc.P.O.

By Jaime Elliott St. John Tradewinds Virgin Islands Unity Day Group sent an eight page letter to the Public Services Commission last week formally requesting the commission reconsider its decision to increase most passenger ferry rates. While a $1.10 fuel surcharge was rescinded, the PSC board voted on April 1 to raise the current $5 adult one-way rate to $7, which will go into effect in May. Students, seniors, children and commuter riders on the Red Hook run will all see their fares rise as well. Commuter tickets to Red Hook increased from $60 for a two-week supply to $100 for the same number of rides. The ferry run from Cruz Bay to Charlotte Amalie will decrease from $10 to $8 for an adult one-way ticket, but seniors will pay $6, up from $5. Commuters will pay $6, which is the current rate, and bulk ticket users will pay $6, $2 less than the $8 rate now in effect for a one-way fare to Charlotte Amalie. Signed by the VI Unity Day Group’s Transportation Committee Chairperson Stacie January and Co-chairperson Nydia Lewis, the letter outlines seven main reasons the PSC should review its move to raise ferry fares from Cruz Bay to Red Hook. Incomplete Financial Records First, the VI Unity Day Group alleges that the PSC erred in approving the rates from Transportation Services, one of two ferry companies granted an exclusive franchise for the runs between St. Thomas and St. John. “The 2006/07 audit report for Transportation Services of St. John includes a quali 50 percent of each — of the accounts receivable and accounts payable balances for according to the letter. “Receivables and payables systems form core components of ances question the integrity and adequacy franchisee.” Transportation Services, the franchisee reporting the largest and most frequent losses, cannot be relied on to determine reasonable rates,” VI Unity Day Group wrote in the let ter addressed to Joseph Boschulte, chairper son of the PSC. Ineligible Expenses on Returns The group also alleges that the PSC er roneously included ineligible expenses of franchise holders in determining reasonable rates including unpaid taxes, below-market costs. No Interest Loans Transportation Services of St. John and Varlack Ventures show substantial loans to ments show more than $71,000 due to the “Given that the loans bear no interest sonable to assume that the loans should be treated as either a dividends or compensa tion paid to employees and be considered taxable income for income,” the VI Unity Day Group wrote. “The result of the loans are essentially paying interest charges on that borrowing being passed on through increased rates.” The PSC used unallowable costs in its determining reasonable rates for the franchi sees, according to the letter.

Accounting Is Not Uniform The accounting records provided by the ferry companies are not uniform and should not be relied on to support their claim of losses, according to the letter. “Non-franchise operation expenses have been included in franchise operation expenses in determining ‘reasonable’ rates,” according to the group’s letter. “There should be no reason for not being able to easily allocate some costs directly between franchise and non-franchise operations.” Burden of Proof Not Met The Unity Day Group also contends that the PSC approved rates which are discrimi natory, unjust and unreasonable. Since the setting new rates, those rates can only be unreasonable, according to the letter. “The franchisees, therefore, could not have met even minimum requirements for St. John Tradewinds, April 20-26, 2009 5 – V.I.

Parents, friends and dignitaries joined St. John Montessori School Director and Teacher Debra Polucci. The crowd was also treated to a performance by the 16 students of the new school which has taken shape in the one-room classroom which formerly housed the public school for the East End of the island. Revered St. John educator Guy H. Benjamin, a special guest speaker in the lineup of dignitaries and supporters, regaled the audience with memories of his “where I was the boss,” he said. “It’s my pleasure to come home,” said Benjamin, who has become a regular visitor to the Montessori school. Benjamin recalled living at the school during the week and traveling to his family home on the East End of St. John which is visible across the entrance to Coral Bay from the John’s Folly school.

Three guest speakers were on hand to address the membership, Representative Gil Hash of the USVI Medical Air Services Association (MASA), and Fern LaBorde, Executive Director of American Cancer Society, USVI Unit, both of St. Thomas, and St. John marine ecologist Dr. Caroline Rogers. Hash updated the group on the variety of off-island medical transportation services MASA now offers, including an option to the mainland for care. Annual membership costs can be paid on a monthly deduction basis, rather than paid in one payment. The average cost of an air ambulance starts at about $10,000. Participation in MASA is open to the general public. LaBorde described the services offered by the USVI Cancer Society to St. John residents who have been diagnosed with cancer, including help with the costs of transportation to treatment centers or assistance with paying for costly medication which is not covered by insurance. LaBorde hopes to organize a “Relay for Life” in Love City. Residents from St. John have been participating in the event on St. Thomas and St. Croix has hosted its own race as well. The St. Thomas relay has raised about $200,000, which helps provide extra care for cancer patients in the district. “Many patients need what the Cancer Society has to offer, but don’t know this type of help is there,” said LaBorde. “We want to get the word out.” Rogers delighted everyone with a slide presentation of the under sea world sur rounding Love City.

St. John Tradewinds, April 20-26, 2009 11 By Jaime Elliott St. John Tradewinds Tenants at The Marketplace will new management takes over the Mail Center and Gym in Paradise re-opens under new leadership. After closing its doors in March, Gym in Paradise has left the cold. The gym will re-open in May under new — or old — management. Mark Dallas bought the gym in January 2008 and originally intended to move to St. John to run the operation. Plans changed, however, and Dallas was unable to relocate to Love City. A series of setbacks put the business in the red and left Dallas scrambling for rent. Dallas hoped to lure new membership to re-open the gym, but plans changed again and now the original managers Kate and Jim Swan and Terry and Tommy Ber tolino, owners of St. John Hardware, will be running the gym once again. With a return to the original management, customers can expect a return to the service which lagged for several months before the gym closed its doors. “We’re excited to have the gym re-open and it will come back better than it was before,” said Debbie Marsh, Marketplace manager. “The new management will ensure the gym is reliable and returns to the great service it provided before. It will no longer be run under Dallas Enterprises.” New Mail Center Owner Marketplace, ADM Wireless will be moving across the courtyard to the former Island Headquarters location — which has sat vacant for more than a year — as it takes over management of The Mail Center. In addition to keeping the cur rent mail service available, ADM will offer business services as well, explained owner Trevor Adams. “Our plan is to improve on the services that are already being provided by adding a business center so people will be able to come in and use their lap tops and print or use the computers there,” said Adams. “We’ll maintain the current mail service and just try to provide more valuable services that people need.” ADM Wireless will take over the Mail Center in May, and will occupy the empty space next door in June. Adams was looking for another business opportunity when the Mail Center became available, he explained. “I was interested in opening a mail service in Red Hook but a competitor opened over there and then this opportunity became available and I jumped at it,” Adams said.

The group was founded by St. Croix-native Janice Mathurin after a series of health scares made her turn her own life around. “The program focuses on healthy eating and how women can empower themselves,” said “I was a nurse for 21 yeas and after going through various chal lenges with my own health, I had a stroke and a massive heart attack. I was only in my 30s when this happened and it was a real wake up call for me.” “I saw that if I didn’t make changes, I was going to be in real trouble,” Mathurin said. “I have four daughters and a son and how could I be good to them if I wasn’t even being good to myself. So I decided to work on it my business and life’s work to help others too.” Mathurin is hosting two workshops on St. John this week. She’ll focus on senior health on Thursday, April 24, when she speaks at the Adrian Seniors’ Center at 2 p.m. That evening, Mathurin will giver her presentation to the general public at 7 p.m. Both sessions will focus on healthy eating and healthy life styles. “My thing is getting people to lose weight without dieting,” said Mathurin. “I get people to reprogram their bodies and reevaluate their relationship with food to help them lose weight. I give people the tools to win their war with obesity once and for all.” For more information on Women With Focus, check out the web site at www.womenwithfocus.org or call Mathurin at 340-643-4772.

Editor, wood, I felt compelled to write about my experiences with the V.I. Police Department. It seems that at the end of every month, they (the VIPD) come to Coral Bay to issue tickets for whatever They are by no means friendly, and as Mary wrote in her letter, “they only harass private citizens in the name of public safety.” There are drugs being sold and everyone knows where, but would the cops go check it out? No. Because not having a spare tire on your car is more dangerous to the community than selling drugs. I drove back and forth through Coral Bay one SatHodge. He issued me a ticket for not having a spare tire. A week later I went to get my car inspected and They have a certain quota to meet and the easiest way to do it is to come to Coral Bay. Funny how when we called the police to come to Shipwreck Landing the night one of the locals showed up outside the restaurant with a gun pointing at the dinner crowd, the VIPD were too busy to come “all the way out there” because it was carnival and they were short handed. guns and badges?

Police Department’s Leander Jurgen Dear Editor, St. John residents must realize that there are two off-island forces at work to limit our marine resources, our parking, and therefore our business. These two forces are US Homeland Security and the St. Thomas/St John Port Authority. Homeland Security is in the process of closing the entire Creek Harbor to access by our private citizens by land and by sea. Have you noticed the loss of dozens of our parking spaces there? The entire Creek Harbor is being designated a 105, or secure area, for the use by Commercial Vessels only, like the dock at Cruz Bay. The Creek Harbor has been under local control for time immemorial for use by our neighbors and our families. Some portion of it must remain so. And the wards in their efforts to provide services like dockage and parking for our needs. Kudos to them! But their efforts are limited by the fact that the top administra tors of the Port Authority are located in St Thomas. These administrators are not villains, but need input from us concerning St. John marine and land usage needs. We need to contact them and express our wishes for this usage.

Thank you, Craig Friedenberg 14 St. John Tradewinds, April 20-26, 2009 St. John Tradewinds The Department of Licensing and Consumer Affairs conducted its latest territory-wide food basket survey during the last week of March. The food basket survey is designed to inform consumers on which stores have the best prices on staple grocery items.The number of items compared on each island varies due to the fact that a comparison can only be valid if each store carries the same items. St. John On St. John three stores were surveyed. Typically the survey compares two stores — Dolphin Market Mart was added to the March survey. The new addition to the survey offered the lowest priced food basket at $55.13. The results were $1.76 cheaper than Dolphin Market at $60.73. All three stores were compared using a 24 item list St. Thomas On St. Thomas four stores were surveyed; Pueblo in Long Bay and Sub Base, Plaza Extra, and Food Center were all compared using a food basket of the same items. The best deal for all 30 items of the family food basket was found at Pueblo Long Bay with a total of $88.76. Pueblo’s Sub Base store came in at an extremely close second place with a food basket of $88.84, a difference of .08 cents between the two stores. From the February food basket survey, it was observed that the Pueblo supermarkets on St. Thomas were leading the way in uniform pricing.Pine Peace Mini Mart Added To Food Basket Survey

I wonder if they gained an appreciation of the landscape as much as they did the awesome seascapes. Hopefully they saw the “subtle beauty” that one of our local botanists, Eleanor Gibney, describes in her recent book “Native Trees and Plants of East End, St. John,” not just the catch and keep. Too often the shocking colors of bougainvilleas and other imported plants are considered to be the norm. Gibney continues to inform the public about local landscapes. She is currently consulting with the Estate Fish Bay Owners’ Association to establish a native plant demonstration area where people can see trees and plants that naturally populate our environs. The Virgin Islands Department of Agriculture has given the association a grant to help establish this area which will eventually be open to all St. John residents. Not only does the natural environment of the East End have lessons for us all but also the people who settled and lived there are examples for us to follow on community spirit, an appreciation of the uncomplicated life and a deeper appreciation of what is really important. The natural landscape belies the many industrial and commercial endeavors that were engaged in by the inhabitants of East End to Coral Bay. A review of deeds in the Cadasmerchants held title to large tracts of land in this area. These lands were used to mine sand and gravel for construction on St. Thomas, to manufacture lime for cement, and to make charcoal (the propane of yesteryear). It’s ironic that “coal” was made here to fuel the cooking stoves of St. Thomas and Puerto Rico. For example, the Lockhart Development Company had extensive holdings on St. John and an agent who would oversee the distribution of sand and gravel orders to East Enders who would gather the materials and transport them to St. Thomas. It would seem that there was plenty of land on St. Thomas to conduct this business. The road system, however, had not been developed as yet and trucks were not available. The best way to understand the types of people who lived on the East End is to take an in-depth look at two of its thought leaders. Thought leaders and top of the head awareness are just marketing terms for exploring the heart of a community. Alice Maude Harley and Captain Moses Harley represented all that was good on the East End. peace they shared with themselves and their neighbors. The Harleys were born in the last decade of the 19th century and passed in the late 1970s The Captain, born on British Thatch Island, was raised at Mary’s Point and educated at Emmaus and on the sea. Moses began working on Lovango clearing pasture. His uncle Joseph introduced him to seafaring where he spent most of his time. He went to the states and worked as a seaman visiting Florida, New York, Texas, Alabama, Cuba, Jamaica, Mexico and Canada. Moses returned home in 1939. He grew crops of ground provinet. This was a community effort which involved the people who handled the net and those who those who were unable to work shared in the catch. Captain Harley’s boat was called the Golden Dawn. This single-masted Tortolan sloop sailed to St. Thomas, St Croix and Tortola. Alice Maude Harley, nee Chinnery, went to Antigua for teacher training and worked at the East End School for 30 years. The Harleys made it a point to search out newcomers and to make those people feel welcomed. Maude is quoted as saying “All who come are nice people” to which the Captain added “No Kick” meaning “no complaint.” Her hurricane advice was always timely. She said after the house is closed, “Some people sing, some pray. You sit quietly and wait on God’s mercy.” I’ve met stateside East Enders who came to know the Harleys over 40 years ago and still speak of them with reverence and deep respect.

of about eight to one, the New England Culinary Institute offers hands-on learing and a commitment to sustainable cuisine, Brezic explained. “There is a real emphasis on fresh local products and ingredients,” he said. “The school is dedicated to reducing the carbon footprint by smart food practices. We have such amazing access to products up there fresh from the farm.” Brezic shared his zeal for the culinary arts with GHS students during a presentation on Friday morning, April 17. “I gave a presentation to the students to show them an alternative to the conventional college experience,” said Brezic. “A lot of kids here live alterna tive lifestyles on the beach so I thought an alternative really enjoyed the presentation.” The New England Culinary Institute’s two year program places students in internships at the end of their second year. Through his contacts in St. John kitchens, Brezic has positioned three students in internships on Love City, at La Tapa and Waterfront Bistro. “The food scene down here is great with all the abundance of fresh seafood and tropical fruits,” said Brezic. “Working here and being a chef here, the island has always had an issue with a lack of talent to work in all these great restaurants. I thought I could get the school involved with the island and develop a relationship with providing talented labor while providing the kids with outstanding opportunities.” Brezic still loves cooking and recommends the career for anyone looking to put a smile on people’s faces. “I love making people happy and taking care of people,” said Brezic. “Seeing that look of bliss on people’s faces when they take a bite of some of my food is a memorable experience and is what I still love about cooking.” For more information on the New England Culinary Institute check out the web site www.neci.edu. establishing a burden of proof justifying that the proposed rate increases were just and reasonable as required under Section 24 of Title 30 of the VI Code and under which the franchisees are solely responsible for establishing that burden of proof,” the Unity Day Group wrote. Rates Discrimnate Against Red Hook Riders The rates are discriminatory against the Red Hook riders because they are subsidizing the Cruz Bay to Charlotte Amalie run, according to the St. John group. “Despite the Charlotte Amalie route being more than 30 times the distance of the Red Hook route, adult passengers on the former will only pay 14 percent higher rates,” according to the Unity Day Group letter. “Removing the fuel sur charge is resulting in a reduction of rates for the Charlotte Amalie riders, yet a substantial increase in rates for the two largest ridership groups (commuters and adults) on the Red Hook route.” “This is in effect a subsidy provided to the much fewer riders on the Charlotte Amalie route at the expense of the many more riders on the Red Hook route,” the group wrote. “The rates for the Charlotte Amalie and Red Hook route are therefore unreasonable, discrimi natory and not supported by any route cost analysis presented to or documented by the commission.” The group hopes to hear a response from the commission shortly and retains its right to apDistrict Court.Ferry Rate Hike16 St. John Tradewinds, April 20-26, 2009 St. John Tradewinds with jelly beans and asked customers to guess how many were in it for a in the jar.

St. John Tradewinds, April 20-26, 2009 17Community Calendar St. John Tradewinds Parents of students attending St. Thomas/St. John District public schools are dvised that the deadline to submit applications for the 2009 Learn It! Summer Enrichment Program has passed. Department of Education Superintendent Jeanette Smith-Barry asks parents whose children have been referred for the program to immediately submit their applications to the respective school or at the Curriculum Center in Tutu to ensure their enrollment. The program, sponsored by the VI Department of Education, is geared toward helping students to improve their skills in reading and math. “The program has been extended and expanded this year beginning on June 22 and ending on July 30,” said Smith. “Students will be actively engaged in a series of activities both academic and entertaining from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.” Enrollment in the program is at no cost and targets students who received basic or below basic scores on last year’s VITAL tests. There will be rewards for good attendance and for those students who successfully complete the six week program, Smith explained. “There are several schools that have not submitted any applications thus far and we do not want students attending these schools to lose out on this meaningful and fun opportunity to learn,” the superintendent said. “This free enrichment program will be supported by the federal Summer Food Service Program, providing breakfast, lunch and a snack for its participants as well as bus transportation will be provided to and from each site.” For more information contact Summer Enrichment Applications Available for Parents
