Downpours Drench Love City


5.79 Inches of rain dropped on Monday


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Following a months-long dry
spell, the island was drenched
with downpours last week.
Rafe Boulon, who collects rain
data at his North Shore home, re-
corded the heaviest rainfall on
Monday, May 4.
After collecting only 1.25
inches of rain for all of April,
Boulon recorded 5.79 inches of
rain on May 4 alone.
The rain wreaked havoc on the
island's roads. Flooding by the
Cruz Bay tennis courts prompt-
ed officials to re-route traffic
through the Enighed Pond Ma-
rine Facility and up the steep hill


parallel to St. John School of the
Arts. Guts were running full and
waterfalls were spotted across
the island.
Department of Public Works
officials watched as all The Val-
ley Road - which was graded
with fill from the Cruz Bay
round-about project just a week
before the rains - was washed
away once again.
Flooding near the entrance to
The Marketplace resulted in one
passable lane in front of the Wa-
ter and Power Authority Plant
for most of the day. As the rain
ebbed. DPW officials quickly
cleared drains and got the roads
back to a passable condition.


Shorter spats of rain mid-week
made Boulon's collection total
6.86 inches by Thursday morn-
ing. May 7.
The week's rain almost dou-
bles the amount Boulon recorded
for the 2009 year so far, which
before the recent showers was
only 6.92 inches.
After filling cisterns and sat-
ing thirsty plants, the rain was
expected to taper off this week as
weather on St. John returns to the
normal May sunshine.
But the effects of the down-
pour will be felt in the future
too. Residents should brace for a
mosquito bloom which is expect-
ed from the wet conditions.

St. John Tradewinds
This year, Miss St. John could
actually hail from St. Thomas.
Each year as part of the annual
St. John Festival a lavish competi-
tion pits at least three Love City
young ladies against each other
for the chance to win the crown
and title of Miss St. John.
The night is filled with fancy
dresses, intricate costumes and
complicated dances, as the ladies
strut their stuff before the judges
and a huge crowd in the Winston
Wells ball field. The end of the
night finds one young lady with
the crown. As Miss St. John, the
pageant winner presides over Fes-
tival festivities and also takes part
in nearby island celebrations.
This year, however, the tradi-
tion is changing. Organizers of the
St. John Festival's annual Miss St.
John Pageant made young women
from St. Thomas eligible to com-
pete because they had such a diffi-
cult time finding St. John ladies to
take part, according to the pageant
committee chairperson.
"We opened up the competi-
tion to St. Thomas ladies because
for the last couple of years, we've
had a really difficult time finding
young St. John ladies to vie for the
title," said Enid Doway, St. John
Festival and Cultural Organiza-
tion's pageant committee chair-
person.
The rule allowing St. Thomas
residents to compete has actually
been on the books for a few years,


explained Doway.
"It was voted on by the execu-
tive committee, which I am not
even a part of, two years ago,"
Doway said. "This is just the first
year we're advertising the fact."
In light of the new rule, Festival
organizers have changed the win-
ning lady's title, Doway added.
"We changed the title from
Miss St. John to Miss St. John
Festival Queen and she will only
reign over the Festival," said the
pageant committee chairperson.
The St. John Princess competi-
tion has also been opened to girls
from St. Thomas and the winning
title for that pageant will be St.
John Festival Princess, Doway ex-
plained.
The St. John Festival Princess
show will be on Sunday, June 21,
at 6 p.m. and the Miss St. John
Festival Queen Pageant will be on
Saturday, June 27, at 8 p.m.
Both the princess and queen
shows will feature two young la-
dies from St. Thomas and one
young lady from St. John. A
Prince show is also slated for this
year which will feature two Love
City young men.
Doway was bracing for poten-
tial backlash for the inclusion of
St. Thomas ladies in the pageant
this year, but hoped residents
would support the festivities.
"It's going to be a great show,"
said Doway. "Hopefully when the
people see who the contestants are,
they will be supportive because
the ladies are lovely individuals."

Michael Stanislas Sentenced to 15 Years

for Estate Enighed Robbery and Shooting


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
A year and a half after robbing
a poker game and shooting a VI.
National Park employee, Michael
Stanislas was sentenced to 15
years in prison last week.
Stanislas, a 28-year-old St.
Thomas resident, was sentenced
on Tuesday, May 5, by V.I. Supe-
rior Court Judge Leon Kendall to
15 years for first-degree attempted
murder, five years for first-degree
assault, 15 years for possession of


a dangerous weapon, seven years
each for five counts of first-degree
robbery and an additional seven
years for first-degree attempted
robbery, according to a published
report. He was also fined $5,000
for the weapons charge.
Since Stanislas will serve all of
those jail terms concurrently, he'll
spend 15 years behind bars.
The Estate Nadir man was one
of two gunmen who broke up a
poker game in Estate Enighed on
December 28, 2007. After one of


the gunmen opened fire, hitting a
player in the head, shoulder and
hand, another poker player pulled
out his licensed gun and returned
fire, according to V.I. Police De-
partment reports.
Stanislas, who suffered gunshot
wounds to the groin, buttocks and
shoulder, was found bleeding in
the area. He was treated at R.L.
Schneider Hospital and was ar-
rested upon his release. Police of-
ficials have yet to identify the sec-
ond gunman.

Caneel Wishes Celso Principaal

Happy Retirement After 25 Years
Si By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Caneel Bay Resort staff and friends filled the resort's mainte-
nance area on Thursday afternoon, April 20, to wish Celso Princi-
paal a happy retirement.
Systems Originally from Curaqao, Principaal has called St. John home
for more than three decades, 25 of which he's spent at Caneel as
SDirector of Engineering. In his post, Principaal was responsible for
all of the day-to-day operations at the resort, from air conditioning
to refrigeration.
"We'll miss him hugely," said Patrick Kidd, Caneel's marketing
director. "We wish him a long and happy retirement and we hope
that he'll be a frequent visitor to the resort in his retirement."
About 30 employees, including executive chef Anthony Da-
an be picked wodu and Managing Director Nickolay Hotze, enjoyed a delicious
St. Croix, the spread of food, drinks and the sounds of steel pan music during a
St. Johen surprise retirement party for Principaal.
it to the V.L Amid a multitude of hugs and handshakes, Principaal was truly
surprised and heartened by the resort's party, he explained.
"Well, I was not expecting this," said Principaal. "They certain-
_ ly surprised me."
Principaal has worked for Caneel Bay Resort since he was 46,
but even though he won't be handling the resort's operations any-
./St. John more, he has no intentions of slowing down.
Jacobs No% I'll have more time to travel and enjoy life," Principaal

Caneel Bay Resort Not
for Sale Despite Rumors
St. John Tradewinds
In case anyone was wondering - and
apparently some people were - Caneel
Bay Resort is not for sale.
In the face of rumors swirling around
Love City that the luxury resort was
destined for the auction block, Caneel's
Managing Director Nikolay Hotze is-
sued an official statement to set the re-
cord straight.
"On behalf of both the ownership and
management of Caneel Bay, a Rosewood
Resort, I would like to respond to com-
ments I have received concerning a per-
sistent rumor that the resort is either for
sale, in discussions to sell or has sold,"
said Hotze. "I can categorically state that
the resort is not for sale nor have we en-
tertained any offers or discussions and
there are no plans afoot that affect the
current ownership of Caneel Bay."
"On the contrary, the ownership is
profoundly committed to the future of
our unique property and is working dili-
gently and continuing to invest in ongo-
ing capital improvements to ensure that
the Caneel Bay Resort we know today,
continues to thrive and is available for
the enjoyment of many future genera-
tions to come," Hotze said.


When a Mezzanine Is Not a Mezzanine?


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Department of Planning and Natural Re-
sources officials recently clarified their def-
inition of a second floor contained under
the same ceiling as a floor below or above.
The issue of mezzanines has long been
a dividing one for residents taking stock
of existing, and especially future, develop-
ments on St. John.
Detractors contend that when construc-
tion plans include a mezzanine - essen-
tially a loft space contained within a main
floor of a building - it is really just a way
to add an extra story to a structure and get
around the zoning code.
Architects and developers who com-
monly include mezzanines in their work,
however, see it as a way to maximize the
use of all space in a building while adher-
ing to local building codes.
While mezzanines are common on St.
John, evidenced in projects from Grande
Bay to the Mango Terrace condos, a new
proposed Bordeaux Mountain development
had neighbors in the area questioning when
a mezzanine isn't quite a mezzanine.
Original plans for the Bordeaux Moun-
tain Villas, which was expected to be is-
sued a group dwelling permit, included
16 four-bedroom units in four clusters of
four attached buildings, a gym and pool on


about 5.6 acres at 10-10 Remainder, Estate
Carolina. The fourth bedroom in each of
the units was located in a mezzanine de-
signed to be the uppermost section of each
structure.
The development is located in a R-1
zone which allows only two story build-
ings. Responding to a flood of concern
over the Bordeaux Mountain Villas plans,
including the apparent third story mezza-
nines, DPNR's Division of Comprehensive
and Coastal Zone Planning Director Mar-
jorie Emanuel issued a letter detailing ex-
actly when a mezzanine is a mezzanine and
when it's really a full story.
A mezzanine is "an intermediate level or
levels between the floor and ceiling of any
story with an aggregate floor area of not
more than one-third of the area of the room
or space in which the level or levels are lo-
cated," according to the 2006 International
Residential Code used by DPNR and cited
in Emanuel's letter.
The department also uses the 2006 Inter-
national Building Code definition to deter-
mine a mezzanine, which defines the term
as "an intermediate level between the floor
and ceiling of any story and covering not
more than 33 percent of the floor area of the
room in which it is located."
A mezzanine is considered a floor of its
own, however, when "it covers more than


33 percent of the area of the story under-
neath said mezzanine," or "if the vertical
distance from the floor next below it to the
floor next above it is 24 feet or more."
The department further defines a story
as "that portion of a building included be-
tween the surface of any/a floor and the
floor next above it, or if there be no floor
above it, then the space between the floor
and ceiling/roof next above it," according
to the V.I. Zoning and Subdivision Code.
Under these guidelines, Bordeaux
Mountain Villas architect Michael Milne,
owner of Barefoot Architect, was asked to
alter plans for the development, according
to Emanuel's letter.
"We hereby acknowledge that the mezza-
nine has been eliminated from the drawings
for the group dwelling project planned for
Bordeaux Mountain," according to Emanu-
el's letter. "Please be advised that the group
dwelling permit would be amended accord-
ingly, and the project's drawings would be
approved once the division is in receipt of
drawings clearly illustrating the develop-
ment of buildings no more than two stories
in height to comply with the property's R-1
zoning designation."
"While we might not fully agree with
the interpretation of the definition, we've
complied with their request and removed
the mezzanine levels," said Milne.

Volunteers Need To Keep Recycling Going


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
As more and more residents embrace recycling
on St. John, the island's fledgling recycling group is
struggling to keep up with the demand.
Recycling Association of the Virgin Islands, St.
John Chapter, has been so successful at launching alu-
minum can recycling on St. John, the group is having
a hard time emptying the collection bins fast enough,
explained Susan DeBonis, a RAVI St. John member.
"With so many people recycling now, the bins are
filling up really quickly," said DeBonis. "I'm not sure
if people are aware that we really need more volun-
teers to keep this effort going and growing. We're at
the critical point where it's getting bigger than the
people we have in our group can handle."
"It's becoming a real burden on our core people,"
DeBonis said. "It's just getting more and more dif-
ficult"
The group is looking for volunteers to adopt alumi-
num can collection bins, which entails emptying the
bins when they fill up, replacing the bags in the bins
and then dropping the cans in a container at Enighed
Pond Marine Facility.
RAVI St. John hopes to place even more bins
around island, but that won't be possible unless more
volunteers join the group, explained DeBonis.
No%% we're starting to talk about expanding our
recycling efforts even further and putting collection
bins in more and more areas, but we need more peo-
ple," she said.
The group can also use help in constructing addi-

bins located at the Pine Peace dumpster.

tional bins, DeBonis added.
RAVI St. John currently has about 15 active mem-
bers and t group hopes to get at least another 15 to
join, explained Paul Devine, RAVI St. John project
manager.
"We knew we'd get to a point where the recycling
effort grew so much that we'd be short of people,"
said Devine. "We just didn't know it was going to
happen so quickly."
To help ensure St. John continues to recycle and
join RAVI St. John call Devine at 693-9410.

Five Danish Students Bringing


Research To Life as VINP Interns


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
After months of pouring over
manuscripts in the Danish Na-
tional Archives, five students will
be visiting the actual sites of their
research this month.
The five students from the Uni-
versity of Copenhagen, Denmark,
will spend the next four weeks ex-
ploring colonial plantations from
Haulover Bay to east of Brown
Bay as interns with the V.I. Na-
tional Park.
Under the leadership of VINP
Archaeologist Ken Wild, the stu-
dents will be able to actually see
the Danish plantations they've
been studying back in Copenha-
gen.
After arriving on St. John on
Sunday, May 3, archaeology stu-
dents Andreas Bonde Hansen and
Nikolaj Wiuff Kristensen, ethnolo-
gy student Galit Peleg, and history
students Marie Veisegaard Olsen
and Agnes Wraae were excited to
get into the field.
For their research, the students'
best resource was the Danish Na-
tional Archives. Located in Co-
penhagen, the archives are full of
documents from the St. John colo-
nial era, explained Olsen.
"When Denmark sold the is-
lands to the United States, all the
Danish documents, wills, pro-
bates and things like that were


sent to Denmark to the National
Archives," Olsen said. "A lot of it
is written in old Danish or Gothic
and other languages, so we have to
translate a lot, which can be diffi-
cult. But there is so much informa-
tion there."
During their month-long stay
on St. John, the students will be
focusing on identifying and dating
plantations and structures, Olsen
added.
"We're going to try to find these
plantations first and then put names
on them," said Olsen. "We're also
going to try to get a sense of when
the buildings were constructed
and then piece our stories together
from what we see and what we
studied back in Copenhagen."
As an ethnology student, Peleg
has been studying the material
lives of plantation owners on St.
John.
"In the archives I was looking
into the material culture," said
Peleg. "I was looking at wills and
probates and trying to figure out
what they owned. And these peo-
ple didn't own much at all."
"I have so many questions, may-
be looking at the site could provide
some answers to the questions or it
could raise some new questions,"
Peleg said.
While St. John is dotted with ru-
ins from the colonial era, much of
the history behind the plantations,


and sometimes even their exact lo-
cations, remain a mystery, accord-
ing to Wild.
"This is really exciting because
this is when we go out into the
field and find the plantations," he
said. "We know they exist and
we think we have a good idea of
where some of these are, but this is
the exciting part of actually going
out there and finding them."
"We have so many unanswered
questions from that time, we're
hoping to get some answers," said
Wild.
Based on records from the Dan-
ish National Archives, Olsen has
been mapping out the island's East
End and plotting probable planta-
tion locations.
"I was laying out the planta-
tion grounds according to what I
was reading in the archives," said
Olsen. "So we must go there and
look at it and see if this is correct.
We're also trying to date the build-
ings and put a person's name on
them."
"And we have a lot of stories
about peoples lives who lived on
these plantations," Olsen said.
One story Olsen uncovered in
the Danish National Archives re-
volves around an enslaved doc-
tor who lived on a plantation near
Brown Bay.

St. John Tradewinds
St. John School of the Arts of-
ficials are teaming up with Coreen
Samuel to make sure the island's
youth have the opportunity to ex-
pand their writing skills through
innovative workshops once again
this summer.
Following on the heels of
Samuel's successful V.I. Summer
Creative Writing Project Young
Writers Camp last summer, this
summer's camp will offer even
more exciting and educational ac-
tivities for students in elementary
through middle schools.
The Young Writers Camp, which
was founded with the goal of cre-
ating a writing community in the
Virgin Islands, provides a camp-
like experience while enhancing
literacy development. Currently,
it is the sole program of this type
which exists on the island.
The camp will run from July 13
though 31 and will be separated
into two segments. The morning
segment will focus on writing and
will meet from 8 a.m. to noon.
An extended program will in-
clude lessons in creative expres-
sion and dramatic arts, and will
meet from noon to 3 p.m. Students
in the extended program will have
the opportunity to bring their writ-
ing to life through drama, art and
dance, explained SJSA's executive
director Jan Kinder.
"SJSA is the sponsoring orga-
nization and will also provide the
children with the extended day
program which will expand on the
dramatic arts to also include mu-
sic, movement, play acting, drama
and art," said Kinder. "Using all
the arts will further develop and
bring the children's creations to
life. This experience can be very
powerful."
Students will have the opportu-
nity to write, create works of art,
visit historical landmarks and learn
about Caribbean writers, Kinder
explained.
"Students will receive powerful
lessons in writing, crafts, drama,
art, and Caribbean literature," she
said. "Students will meet artists,
published writers, and take eco-
logical field trips that help inspire
them to write."
Students will compose in a va-
riety of forms, from nature writ-
ing to narratives and from poetry
to folklore. While the program is


designed to nourish the budding
writer in each student, it also cen-
ters around celebrating local cul-
ture, Kinder explained.
"The mission is to create cul-
tural literacy by providing power-
ful writing workshop experiences,
where students learn writing crafts
and techniques while enriching
their understanding of their rich
culture," Kinder said. "Students
will receive daily learning experi-
ences in art, drama, genre-writing,
and cultural history."
This summer, the program will
have the students delving into their
personal and their family's past,
according to Samuel.
"This summer Young Writers
Inc. will unearth the Pieces Lost in
the Past through storytelling," said
Samuel. "Young writers will look
back to their past and collect sto-
ries from their parents, grandpar-
ents, great grandparents and elders
in the community. This exercise in
generational writing will provide a
forum for preserving our rich cul-
ture."
The extended program will be
taught by Thia Muilenburg, who
has a MA in Expressive Therapies,
and Luba Dolgopolsky, who has a
MA in Music Education.
Parents of students who par-
ticipated in last year's camp saw
a big difference in their children's
work.
"I was extremely excited with
the results of this workshop," said
Alice Krall, whose daughter took
part in last summer's writing work-
shop. "Ms. Samuel had a wealth


of information to share with the
kids and her methods were easy to
understand and received well by
the students. My daughter wrote
things in ways I didn't know she
could."
Officials are trying to keep the
cost of the camp down, so as many
students as possible can take part.
The morning segment three-week
camp will cost $225 and the ex-
tended program will be $150. If
students sign up for both sessions,
it still only amounts to $375 for
the three week camp, explained
Kinder.
"I am anticipating a wonder-
ful turn out," she said. "The full
day camp, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.,
is only $25 per day - an afford-
able investment with such great
returns."
The collaboration between
SJSA and the Young Writers Camp
is a perfect fit, Kinder added.
"I am thrilled the Young Writers
Camp has partnered with SJSA,"
she said. "The essential elements
of our program provides a range
of writing experiences in which
students can explore their talents
as a writer and discover something
more about themselves.
"I'm excited to see each child's
creative potential and confidence
blossom," said the SJSA executive
director.
Members of the community
who would like to make a finan-
cial contribution to the camp or
sponsor a particular child to attend
should call St. John School of the
Arts at 340-779-4322.

St. John School of the Arts' Musical Recital
Enjoyed by Families and Friends
A packed house encouraged 26 students, including pianists,
guitarists, violinists, vocalists and an outstanding tenor sax player
(who now plays with the St. Thomas jazz combos).
After hearing constant reports of students who don't like to
study, it is a joy to hear young people who love their music! We
are grateful to their teachers and their families who, obviously,
insist on dedicated practice!
Our dance recital will be on Sunday, May 17, at 4 p.m. in the
Westin ball room. Everyone is welcomed!
Congratulations to our MaLinda Media
for her Addy Awards
She's creative in every way - we are so proud of her accom-
plishments!
Laurie is Closing Today's Flowers
After all those gorgeous bouquets she has decided to give it up!
What will we do without her? Thanks for all those creations. If
you needed an expression of sympathy or a last minute birthday
present, Laurie always had an arrangement ready to go! We will
miss her very much.

The makeshift stage at The Marketplace was constructed by
Epiphany Theater members, not by Swannie and Tommy. Mad-

Dogs and their owners across
the islands are primping and
practicing for the 9th annual Wa-
gapalooza, on Saturday, May 16,
from 5 to 9 p.m. at the Winston
Wells ball field in Cruz Bay.
Wagapalooza raises much
needed funds for the St. John An-
imal Care Center, the non-profit
organization responsible for the
rescue, care and adoption of the
island's abused and homeless ani-
mals.
Wagapalooza's main attrac-
tion is the island-style dog show,
where beloved dogs and their
owners compete in categories
like Best Spots, Biggest Lap
Dog, Best Look-Alike, Best Tail
and more. The world's only Wa-
ga-Meter determines the winners


by measuring eager audience ap-
plause.
The oddball event this year
also includes live music by Mi-
chael Beason and Friends, excit-
ing half-show entertainment by
Pyros of the Caribbean, dog train-
ing exhibitions, professional pet
portraits, a dog photo contest, in-
teractive dog games and delicious
food and beverages provided by
Crazy Crackers, the Tap Room
and West Indies Corporation.
Incredible raffle prizes have
been generously donated by nu-
merous local businesses and sav-
vy island collectors can pickup
the 2009 Waga Tee and other
ACC gift items at the show.
The cooler evening weather
creates a relaxing environment
for both pets and their owners


New Regulations for Hurricane Hole Storm Mooring


St. John Tradewinds
V.I. National Park and Coral Reef National Monu-
ment officials are implementing new regulations for
vessel owners who use the Hurricane Hole storm
mooring chain for the 2009 hurricane season and be-
yond.
If a vessel owner was issued a permit in 2008 for
a storm mooring location and wants to keep the same
location for 2009, the owner should notify VINP by
written response to Rafe Boulon, VINP's Chief of Re-
source Management, via: email to rafe_boulon@nps.
gov; letter to 1300 Cruz Bay Creek, St. John, 00830;
or fax to 693-9500 or 693-9310, prior to May 15.


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 have until May 29 to renew their permits for that
location by going to the VINP offices at Lind Point
and filling out an application.
Those who do not want to retain their location and
want to take their chances in a drawing, than any spots
not reissued a permit by May 29 will be available for
a drawing on June 6. The drawing will include the ad-
ditional 26 storm mooring berths installed in Princess
Bay and Otter Creek.

St. John Chapter Chamber Upate:

Improving and Regulating Signage


By Kate Norfleet
St. John Tradewinds
The St. John/St. Thomas Cham-
ber of Commerce's St. John Chap-
ter members discussed ways to im-
prove and regulate signage across
the island at their last meeting on
Tuesday, April 28, at Ocean Grill.
While Coral Bay business own-
ers have erected signs at the tri-
angle for years, the land is owned
by the Moravian Church, which
recently hired a property manager
Samuel Rhymer.
Rhymer met with chamber
member Cid Hamling, Skinny
Legs owner Moe Chabuz and
Cheryl Geller in late April and dis-
cussed the church's liability with
the current signage. Some signs
have nails hanging out, some are
illegally hung in trees and many
are often vandalized.
Rhymer hoped to erect signs
that point tourists in the direction
of either Salt Pond or East End
and the businesses located in those
areas. While the property manager
was interested in limiting the size
and number of signs in the area, he


hoped the signage would impart a
feeling of being in a unique place.
Constructing a small dinghy or
anchor in the area, in keeping with
the feeling of the boating commu-
nity of Coral Bay, was one possi-
bility discussed.
The Moravian Church property
manager was also interested in set-
ting up regular maintenance of
the area. It remains uncertain how
the church would determine which
businesses can erect sings and
which can not.
"Mr. Rhymer suggested a draw-
ing of names of businesses which
would be drawn every one to two
years to keep the signs current,"
said Hamling.
Businesses interested in placing
a sign at the main comer in Coral
Bay should attend a meeting on
Tuesday, May 12, at 11 a.m. at the
Eammaus Moravian Church.
All signs must be removed by
May 15 by owners or they will be
removed by the church and the
business owners will be charged
for the removal.
Debbie Hime and Hamling have


formed a committee with St. John
Administrator Leona Smith and
V.I. National Park Superintendent
Mark Hardgrove to focus on sig-
nage in the Cruz Bay area.
The committee hopes to give St.
John visitors a better welcome ex-
perience through signage at strate-
gic locations. Research is now be-
ing done on the cost and feasibility
of placing informational maps and

complained about the
road during a town

their efforts washed

A Sad Goodbye To a Friend


Editor,
I am sad by the passing of my long time friend, An-
nie Love. She was lived true to her name, and always
had a smile and hug for anyone.
Annie loved St. John with all her heart and it was
a big heart, sometimes so big that it hurt her. Her art-
work was relevant to the beauty she tapped into from
the island she loved.
Annie was a soul artist and made her living for over


18 years on St. John making art, something very few
can accomplish. I am proud that she was my daugh-
ter's godmother and was there to cut her umbilical
cord. I will miss her dearly.
Her "Annie Made" artwork, jewelry and designs
represent who Annie was inside and out, a true beau-

Friends Send Love to Annie on www.stjohnnews.com


Editor's Note:
There was an outpouring of
love and grief over artist Annie
Higham's death last week. Higham
died in a car accident early Satur-
day morning, May 2, not far from
her Estate Upper Carolina home.
A story about the accident post-
ed on the St. John Tradewinds'
website, stjohnnews.com, drew a
number of Higham's friends who
wrote in expressing their love for
the artist and sorrow at her pass-
ing. A memorial service for High-
am is planned for June 6.

Losing Annie has hit us very
hard, and we are grieving for our
sweet little sister....
Abigail Kirby

Annie was such a beautiful per-


son that loved the island and her
St. John Massive family. She will
be missed for years to come as we
take notice that her special flair of
life is not present, whether it was
dancing at the Yard at 4 a.m. or
just bumping into her on the street
while doing chores.
I am saddened that I am not on-
island to grieve with all...
David Redinger

Annie was a ray of sunshine that
touched our lives and warmed our
hearts. May she shine on forever.
Kristine Lane

I haven't stopped thinking
about Annie and her tragic acci-
dent since I heard about it a few
days ago. I will remember Annie's
incredible artwork and jewelry, as


well as her big cackling laugh. You
will be missed and remembered by
many, many people
Tia Patten-Williams

I am so sad to hear this news. I
don't even know what to say. I will
miss Annie all the rest of my life.
Annie was a wonderful person and
she was my friend for 15 years. We
laughed and cried together, danced
and sang. I will miss you dearly
my friend.
Good night sweetheart!
With love always,
Joey Danishefsky

I always saw her smiling and
her artwork always made me feel
happy. I am so sorry to hear this
news.

Danish Students Bringing Research to Life as Interns


Continued from Page 9
worker on a plantation in the Brown Bay area, was a
doctor who treated slaves on the Estate Carolina plan-
tations, explained Olsen.
Sort, which means black in Danish, gained so
much prominence on the island that when the Brown
Bay plantation owner died - one of many who died
in the 1733 slave revolt - he was given the farm and
between 8 to 10 enslaved workers, Olsen explained.
When Sort married another former slave the party
drew eminent citizens, including the governor him-
self, Olsen added.
"A lot of those citizens petitioned the governor to
grant Christian his freedom which he eventually did,"
said Olsen.
The Sort tale is just one of many stories the stu-
dents unearthed in the Danish National Archives
The team of interns will all work together as each
field of study relates to each other, according to Ol-
sen.
"The archaeology, ethnology and history can be
compared and can speak together," said the Danish


history student. "Archaeology is kind of like the glue
that sticks the history and ethnology to the buildings
and plantations."
The interns' work will help VINP officials share the
story of colonial era St. John. Park officials hope to be
able to install interpretive signs at plantation sites ex-
plaining who lived there and when, Wild explained.
After their month-long internship is over, the stu-
dents will return to Copenhagen and complete even
more research to eventually publish a paper on the St.
John colonial era. Through their work, the students
also hope to give something back to St. John.
"It's so amazing here," said Olsen. "We hope to
learn as much as possible about the island's history
and understand that history in context. We also hope
though this that we can give something to the people
here by sharing our information."
Wild expects to schedule a lecture for the Danish
interns to discuss their work with the public. The stu-
dents are also available to speak to interested groups,
Wild added. For more information call Wild at VINP
at 693-8950.

By Jaime Elliott St. John Tradewinds Following a months-long dry spell, the island was drenched with downpours last week. Rafe Boulon, who collects rain data at his North Shore home, recorded the heaviest rainfall on Monday, May 4. After collecting only 1.25 inches of rain for all of April, Boulon recorded 5.79 inches of rain on May 4 alone. The rain wreaked havoc on the island’s roads. Flooding by the Cruz Bay tennis courts promptthrough the Enighed Pond Marine Facility and up the steep hill parallel to St. John School of the Arts. Guts were running full and waterfalls were spotted across the island. Department of Public Works ley Road — which was graded round-about project just a week before the rains — was washed away once again. Flooding near the entrance to The Marketplace resulted in one passable lane in front of the Water and Power Authority Plant for most of the day. As the rain cleared drains and got the roads back to a passable condition. Shorter spats of rain mid-week made Boulon’s collection total 6.86 inches by Thursday morning. May 7. The week’s rain almost doubles the amount Boulon recorded for the 2009 year so far, which before the recent showers was only 6.92 inches. ing thirsty plants, the rain was expected to taper off this week as weather on St. John returns to the normal May sunshine. But the effects of the downpour will be felt in the future too. Residents should brace for a mosquito bloom which is expected from the wet conditions.

Organizers of the St. John Festival’s annual Miss St. John Pageant made young women from St. Thomas eligible to comtake part, according to the pageant committee chairperson. “We opened up the competition to St. Thomas ladies because for the last couple of years, we’ve young St. John ladies to vie for the title,” said Enid Doway, St. John Festival and Cultural Organization’s pageant committee chair person. The rule allowing St. Thomas residents to compete has actually been on the books for a few years, explained Doway. “It was voted on by the executive committee, which I am not even a part of, two years ago,” year we’re advertising the fact.” In light of the new rule, Festival organizers have changed the winning lady’s title, Doway added. “We changed the title from Miss St. John to Miss St. John Festival Queen and she will only reign over the Festival,” said the pageant committee chairperson. The St. John Princess competition has also been opened to girls from St. Thomas and the winning title for that pageant will be St. John Festival Princess, Doway explained. The St. John Festival Princess show will be on Sunday, June 21, at 6 p.m. and the Miss St. John Festival Queen Pageant will be on Saturday, June 27, at 8 p.m. Both the princess and queen shows will feature two young ladies from St. Thomas and one young lady from St. John. A Prince show is also slated for this year which will feature two Love City young men. Doway was bracing for potential backlash for the inclusion of St. Thomas ladies in the pageant this year, but hoped residents would support the festivities. “It’s going to be a great show,” said Doway. “Hopefully when the people see who the contestants are, they will be supportive because the ladies are lovely individuals.”Queen and Princess Show Will Include St. Thomas Contestants

By Jaime Elliott St. John Tradewinds Department of Planning and Natural ReThe issue of mezzanines has long been a dividing one for residents taking stock of existing, and especially future, develop ments on St. John. Detractors contend that when construction plans include a mezzanine — essentially a loft space contained within a main to add an extra story to a structure and get around the zoning code. Architects and developers who commonly include mezzanines in their work, however, see it as a way to maximize the use of all space in a building while adher ing to local building codes. While mezzanines are common on St. John, evidenced in projects from Grande Bay to the Mango Terrace condos, a new proposed Bordeaux Mountain development had neighbors in the area questioning when a mezzanine isn’t quite a mezzanine. Original plans for the Bordeaux Mountain Villas, which was expected to be issued a group dwelling permit, included 16 four-bedroom units in four clusters of four attached buildings, a gym and pool on about 5.6 acres at 10-10 Remainder, Estate Carolina. The fourth bedroom in each of the units was located in a mezzanine designed to be the uppermost section of each structure. The development is located in a R-1 zone which allows only two story buildover the Bordeaux Mountain Villas plans, including the apparent third story mezza nines, DPNR’s Division of Comprehensive and Coastal Zone Planning Director Mar jorie Emanuel issued a letter detailing exactly when a mezzanine is a mezzanine and when it’s really a full story. A mezzanine is “an intermediate level or more than one-third of the area of the room or space in which the level or levels are located,” according to the 2006 International Residential Code used by DPNR and cited in Emanuel’s letter. The department also uses the 2006 Inter and ceiling of any story and covering not room in which it is located.” own, however, when “it covers more than 33 percent of the area of the story under neath said mezzanine,” or “if the vertical as “that portion of a building included beand ceiling/roof next above it,” according to the V.I. Zoning and Subdivision Code. Under these guidelines, Bordeaux Mountain Villas architect Michael Milne, owner of Barefoot Architect, was asked to alter plans for the development, according to Emanuel’s letter. “We hereby acknowledge that the mezza nine has been eliminated from the drawings for the group dwelling project planned for Bordeaux Mountain,” according to Emanu el’s letter. “Please be advised that the group dwelling permit would be amended accord ingly, and the project’s drawings would be approved once the division is in receipt of drawings clearly illustrating the develop ment of buildings no more than two stories in height to comply with the property’s R-1 zoning designation.” “While we might not fully agree with complied with their request and removed the mezzanine levels,” said Milne.St. John Tradewinds, May 11-17, 2009 7 A winning night out!

In the face of rumors swirling around Love City that the luxury resort was destined for the auction block, Caneel’s Managing Director Nikolay Hotze iscord straight. “On behalf of both the ownership and management of Caneel Bay, a Rosewood Resort, I would like to respond to comments I have received concerning a per sistent rumor that the resort is either for sale, in discussions to sell or has sold,” said Hotze. “I can categorically state that the resort is not for sale nor have we entertained any offers or discussions and there are no plans afoot that affect the current ownership of Caneel Bay.” “On the contrary, the ownership is profoundly committed to the future of our unique property and is working diligently and continuing to invest in ongoing capital improvements to ensure that the Caneel Bay Resort we know today, continues to thrive and is available for the enjoyment of many future generations to come,” Hotze said.

RAVI St. John hopes to place even more bins around island, but that won’t be possible unless more volunteers join the group, explained DeBonis. “Now we’re starting to talk about expanding our recycling efforts even further and putting collection bins in more and more areas, but we need more people,” she said.

National Park. Under the leadership of VINP Archaeologist Ken Wild, the students will be able to actually see the Danish plantations they’ve been studying back in Copenhagen. After arriving on St. John on Sunday, May 3, archaeology students Andreas Bonde Hansen and Nikolaj Wiuff Kristensen, ethnology student Galit Peleg, and history students Marie Veisegaard Olsen and Agnes Wraae were excited to For their research, the students’ best resource was the Danish National Archives. Located in Copenhagen, the archives are full of documents from the St. John colonial era, explained Olsen. “When Denmark sold the islands to the United States, all the Danish documents, wills, probates and things like that were sent to Denmark to the National Archives,” Olsen said. “A lot of it is written in old Danish or Gothic and other languages, so we have to cult. But there is so much information there.” During their month-long stay on St. John, the students will be focusing on identifying and dating plantations and structures, Olsen added. on them,” said Olsen. “We’re also going to try to get a sense of when the buildings were constructed and then piece our stories together from what we see and what we studied back in Copenhagen.” As an ethnology student, Peleg has been studying the material lives of plantation owners on St. John. “In the archives I was looking into the material culture,” said Peleg. “I was looking at wills and what they owned. And these people didn’t own much at all.” “I have so many questions, maybe looking at the site could provide some answers to the questions or it could raise some new questions,” Peleg said. While St. John is dotted with ruins from the colonial era, much of the history behind the plantations, and sometimes even their exact locations, remain a mystery, according to Wild. “This is really exciting because this is when we go out into the said. “We know they exist and we think we have a good idea of where some of these are, but this is the exciting part of actually going “We have so many unanswered questions from that time, we’re hoping to get some answers,” said Wild. Based on records from the Danish National Archives, Olsen has been mapping out the island’s East End and plotting probable plantation locations. “I was laying out the plantation grounds according to what I was reading in the archives,” said Olsen. “So we must go there and look at it and see if this is correct. We’re also trying to date the buildings and put a person’s name on them.” “And we have a lot of stories about peoples lives who lived on these plantations,” Olsen said. One story Olsen uncovered in the Danish National Archives revolves around an enslaved doctor who lived on a plantation near Brown Bay.

By Jaime Elliott St. John Tradewinds St. John School of the Arts ofSamuel to make sure the island’s youth have the opportunity to expand their writing skills through innovative workshops once again this summer. Following on the heels of Samuel’s successful V.I. Summer Creative Writing Project Young Writers Camp last summer, this summer’s camp will offer even more exciting and educational activities for students in elementary through middle schools. The Young Writers Camp, which was founded with the goal of creating a writing community in the Virgin Islands, provides a camplike experience while enhancing literacy development. Currently, it is the sole program of this type which exists on the island. The camp will run from July 13 though 31 and will be separated into two segments. The morning segment will focus on writing and will meet from 8 a.m. to noon. An extended program will include lessons in creative expression and dramatic arts, and will meet from noon to 3 p.m. Students in the extended program will have the opportunity to bring their writing to life through drama, art and dance, explained SJSA’s executive director Jan Kinder. “SJSA is the sponsoring organization and will also provide the children with the extended day program which will expand on the dramatic arts to also include music, movement, play acting, drama and art,” said Kinder. “Using all the arts will further develop and bring the children’s creations to life. This experience can be very powerful.” Students will have the opportunity to write, create works of art, visit historical landmarks and learn about Caribbean writers, Kinder explained. “Students will receive powerful lessons in writing, crafts, drama, art, and Caribbean literature,” she said. “Students will meet artists, published writers, and take ecothem to write.” Students will compose in a variety of forms, from nature writing to narratives and from poetry to folklore. While the program is designed to nourish the budding writer in each student, it also centers around celebrating local culture, Kinder explained. “The mission is to create cultural literacy by providing power ful writing workshop experiences, where students learn writing crafts and techniques while enriching their understanding of their rich culture,” Kinder said. “Students will receive daily learning experiences in art, drama, genre-writing, and cultural history.” This summer, the program will have the students delving into their personal and their family’s past, according to Samuel. “This summer Young Writers Inc. will unearth the Pieces Lost in the Past through storytelling,” said Samuel. “Young writers will look back to their past and collect stories from their parents, grandpar ents, great grandparents and elders in the community. This exercise in generational writing will provide a forum for preserving our rich culture.” The extended program will be taught by Thia Muilenburg, who has a MA in Expressive Therapies, and Luba Dolgopolsky, who has a MA in Music Education. Parents of students who par ticipated in last year’s camp saw a big difference in their children’s work. “I was extremely excited with the results of this workshop,” said Alice Krall, whose daughter took part in last summer’s writing workshop. “Ms. Samuel had a wealth of information to share with the kids and her methods were easy to understand and received well by the students. My daughter wrote things in ways I didn’t know she could.” cost of the camp down, so as many students as possible can take part. The morning segment three-week camp will cost $225 and the extended program will be $150. If students sign up for both sessions, it still only amounts to $375 for the three week camp, explained Kinder. “I am anticipating a wonder ful turn out,” she said. “The full day camp, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., is only $25 per day — an affordable investment with such great returns.” The collaboration between SJSA and the Young Writers Camp “I am thrilled the Young Writers Camp has partnered with SJSA,” she said. “The essential elements of our program provides a range of writing experiences in which students can explore their talents as a writer and discover something more about themselves. “I’m excited to see each child’s blossom,” said the SJSA executive director.

St. John Tradewinds, May 11-17, 2009 13 St. John Chapter Chamber Upate: Improving and Regulating Signage St. John Tradewinds The St. John/St. Thomas Chamber of Commerce’s St. John Chapter members discussed ways to improve and regulate signage across the island at their last meeting on Tuesday, April 28, at Ocean Grill. While Coral Bay business owners have erected signs at the triangle for years, the land is owned by the Moravian Church, which recently hired a property manager Samuel Rhymer. Rhymer met with chamber member Cid Hamling, Skinny Legs owner Moe Chabuz and Cheryl Geller in late April and discussed the church’s liability with the current signage. Some signs have nails hanging out, some are illegally hung in trees and many are often vandalized. Rhymer hoped to erect signs that point tourists in the direction of either Salt Pond or East End and the businesses located in those areas. While the property manager was interested in limiting the size and number of signs in the area, he hoped the signage would impart a feeling of being in a unique place. Constructing a small dinghy or anchor in the area, in keeping with the feeling of the boating community of Coral Bay, was one possibility discussed. The Moravian Church property manager was also interested in setting up regular maintenance of the area. It remains uncertain how the church would determine which businesses can erect sings and which can not. “Mr. Rhymer suggested a drawing of names of businesses which would be drawn every one to two years to keep the signs current,” said Hamling. Businesses interested in placing a sign at the main corner in Coral Bay should attend a meeting on Tuesday, May 12, at 11 a.m. at the Eammaus Moravian Church. All signs must be removed by May 15 by owners or they will be removed by the church and the business owners will be charged for the removal. Debbie Hime and Hamling have formed a committee with St. John Administrator Leona Smith and V.I. National Park Superintendent Mark Hardgrove to focus on signage in the Cruz Bay area. The committee hopes to give St. John visitors a better welcome experience through signage at strategic locations. Research is now being done on the cost and feasibility of placing informational maps and signage at nine locations in St. Thomas and St. John. It is not too late to show support in honoring Steve and Helen Simon and Guy Benjamin at the Chamber’s Annual Wilbur “Bill” LaMotta Awards Banquet which will be June 13 at St. Peter Great House on St. Thomas. The chamber will arrange for a special taxi to take all St. John attendees to the event and back to the ferry. Tickets are $125 per person and will be available this week. Call Hamling at 776-6922 to reserve a ticket. The next St. John Chapter meet ing will be Tuesday, June 2, at 5:30 p.m. at Ocean Grill Upstairs.

Police Department’s Leander Jurgen 14 St. John Tradewinds, May 11-17, 2009 Editor, I want you to know our 911 and emergency responder system worked very well this morning. Unfortunately this time the outcome could not be changed. I was awakened at 5:45 a.m. by sounds that seemed to be a landslide, although given where I live I thought that it was a car going over one of the steep hillsides here. I immediately called 911 said I was reporting an accident in Coral Bay St. John. There was a pause and the St. John police “Jurgen Command” came on the line. I repeated that there was an accident and the location. He asked for more details on the location from a point he knew — to conhear moaning and asked for an ambulance to be sent. I then got dressed, called the Coral Bay Fire Staecho here on the hillsides of Upper Carolina. As I came down the hill, other neighbors were also looking for the exact location — based on hearing one of the victims yelling for help. We located the car, and the point of access. down the slope, while some of us went for long ropes from a nearby house, and other neighbors helped out. Within minutes St. John Rescue had arrived. By the time the ambulance arrived at 6:25am, the rescue sled was ready to be lowered to Centerline Road to the ambulance. Unfortunately, nothing could be done for Annie, she had died in the accident. Brian was OK. A few of the neighbors who arrived mentioned they had tried to call 911 or the police, and were frustrated who called, I must have been on the line, or police personnel were informing the various emergency ser vices, while the others were attempting to call. Ultimately I know there were many calls that did not get through to the various services, as we all wanted to be double sure it worked. Big thanks to the Fire Service, St. John Rescue and the EMTs for their fast response and hard work.

Higham died in a car accident early Satur day morning, May 2, not far from her Estate Upper Carolina home. A story about the accident posted on the St. John Tradewinds’ website, stjohnnews.com, drew a number of Higham’s friends who wrote in expressing their love for the artist and sorrow at her passing. A memorial service for Higham is planned for June 6. Losing Annie has hit us very hard, and we are grieving for our sweet little sister.... Abigail Kirby Annie was such a beautiful per son that loved the island and her St. John Massive family. She will be missed for years to come as we life is not present, whether it was dancing at the Yard at 4 a.m. or just bumping into her on the street while doing chores. I am saddened that I am not onisland to grieve with all David Redinger Annie was a ray of sunshine that touched our lives and warmed our hearts. May she shine on forever. Kristine Lane I haven’t stopped thinking about Annie and her tragic accident since I heard about it a few days ago. I will remember Annie’s incredible artwork and jewelry, as well as her big cackling laugh. You will be missed and remembered by many, many people Tia Patten-W illiams I am so sad to hear this news. I don’t even know what to say. I will miss Annie all the rest of my life. Annie was a wonderful person and she was my friend for 15 years. We laughed and cried together, danced and sang. I will miss you dearly my friend. Good night sweetheart! W ith love always, Joey Danishefsky I always saw her smiling and her artwork always made me feel happy. I am so sorry to hear this news. W endy TeelFriends Send Love to Annie on www.stjohnnews.com St. John Tradewinds, May 11-17, 2009 15 Editor, I am sad by the passing of my long time friend, Annie Love. She was lived true to her name, and always had a smile and hug for anyone. Annie loved St. John with all her heart and it was a big heart, sometimes so big that it hurt her. Her artwork was relevant to the beauty she tapped into from the island she loved. Annie was a soul artist and made her living for over 18 years on St. John making art, something very few can accomplish. I am proud that she was my daughter’s godmother and was there to cut her umbilical cord. I will miss her dearly. Her “Annie Made” artwork, jewelry and designs represent who Annie was inside and out, a true beauty. Zarah RoseA Sad Goodbye To a Friend Annie and friends in the 1990s.

worker on a plantation in the Brown Bay area, was a doctor who treated slaves on the Estate Carolina plantations, explained Olsen. Sort, which means black in Danish, gained so much prominence on the island that when the Brown Bay plantation owner died — one of many who died in the 1733 slave revolt — he was given the farm and between 8 to 10 enslaved workers, Olsen explained. When Sort married another former slave the party drew eminent citizens, including the governor himself, Olsen added. “A lot of those citizens petitioned the governor to grant Christian his freedom which he eventually did,” said Olsen. The Sort tale is just one of many stories the students unearthed in the Danish National Archives The team of interns will all work together as each sen. “The archaeology, ethnology and history can be compared and can speak together,” said the Danish history student. “Archaeology is kind of like the glue that sticks the history and ethnology to the buildings and plantations.” able to install interpretive signs at plantation sites explaining who lived there and when, Wild explained. After their month-long internship is over, the students will return to Copenhagen and complete even more research to eventually publish a paper on the St. John colonial era. Through their work, the students also hope to give something back to St. John. “It’s so amazing here,” said Olsen. “We hope to learn as much as possible about the island’s history and understand that history in context. We also hope though this that we can give something to the people here by sharing our information.” Wild expects to schedule a lecture for the Danish interns to discuss their work with the public. The students are also available to speak to interested groups, Wild added. For more information call Wild at VINP at 693-8950.
