NPS Returns Young Hawksbill Sea Turtle


to Hawksnest Bay After Rehabilitation


By Tom Oat
St. John Tradewinds
The young Hawksbill sea turtle
rescued on Caneel Bay Resort's
Hawksnest Beach on St. Patrick's
Day and nicknamed Paddy was
released by National Park Service
employees back into the waters
of Hawksnest Bay on Thursday
morning, May 21.
Flailing its flippers, the foot-
long juvenile turtle was ready to


get back in the water after a two-
month stay at Coral World where
personnel nursed Paddy back to
health by supplementing the tur-
tle's natural diet which includes
squid and clams with some extras.
Paddy was found to have sand
and pieces of shell in her digestive
track, according to one NPS em-
ployee.
Paddy quickly took to the wa-
ters off the beach surfacing several


times about 15 feet off shore be-
fore heading out into the bay from
the resort beach as NPS employees
and a few resort guests watched.
Young turtles return to their
place of birth after spending their
early years at sea, according to ex-
perts.
Unlike Green sea turtles,
Hawksbill turtles do not eat sea
grass. As they mature, Hawksbills
start eating sponges and coral.


One Dies, One Recovers After Being Overcome in Cistern


St. John Tradewinds
A 33-year-old St. Thomas
man died and a 42-year-old St.
John man recovered after they
were overcome by fumes in a
cistern at a home in Fish Bay.
The worker who died was the
first one to go into the cistern,
according to witnesses. The man
who survived had recovered
consciousness after being over-
come and was able to get out of
the cistern while rescue workers


donned breathing aparatus to
bring the second victim out.
St. John Rescue personnel on
the scene worked to restore the
breathing of the second victim.
The unidentified man was
brought to the Myrah Keating
Smith Community Health Cen-
ter emergency room at 10:30
a.m. and transferred to Roy
L. Schneider Hospital on St.
Thomas by St. John EMS at
12:50 p.m. while on a respirator,


according to RLS spokesperson
Sam Topp.
The man expired at 3:42 a.m.
at the hospital, according to
Topp. It has not been determined
whether the men were overcome
by fumes or lack of oxygen, the
RLS spokesman added.
The St. John man was treated
at MKSCHC and released, ac-
cording to Topp.
No further information was
available.

Business Owners Share Crime Concerns with VIPD Deputy Chief Foy


By Tom Oat
St. John Tradewinds
V.I. Police Department St. John
Deputy Chief Darren Foy met with
more than 20 St. John residents
and business owners to discuss St.
John crime Friday, May 22 - and
he gave them his cellular telephone
number while urging them to call
him anytime.
"The purpose of this meeting is
to try to get a plan in place, a bet-
ter process for communication,"
said meeting organizer Helen Si-
mon, chairperson of the island's
Citizens Integration Team. "If we
don't put a control on this, tourism
is going to suffer."
"What can be done by business
owners to help the situation?" Si-
mon asked Deputy Chief Foy.
"As a property owner, what
rights do I have?" one downtown
landlord and businessman asked.
Deputy Chief Foy asked the
group to individually detail their
concerns and they took advantage
of the opportunity.
"We have the usual crack prob-
lem," said longtime Cruz Bay
business owner Albert Willis. "It
got a little bit cleaned up, but they
have trickled back in."
After enforcement efforts which


tore down a makeshift house on a
vacant lot near Wharfside Village,
a group of homeless people have
moved onto another neighboring
property, Deputy Chief Foy told
the business owners.
"They have moved onto private
property," Foy explained. They
have permission of the property
owner to be there, he added.
Open Drug Dealing
Wharfside Village business
owners complained of drug dealers
operating openly in the waterfront
shopping area across from Larry's
Landing bar and restaurant.
"A little more police presence
could make them move on," one
Wharfside business owner said.
"There should be patrols every
shift, every day," said Foy, who
asked all those at the meeting to
call him personally with com-
plaints and concerns.
"Wherever there is a hot spot,
just let me know," the Deputy
Chief added.
"The biggest problem we have
is Larry's Landing, but that guy
doesn't want to cooperate," said
Foy who promised there will be
continued enforcement action in
that area.
"I'm going to keep it vague so


"We've had problems with crime for all the
years I've been here. Some times it gets re-
ally, really bad. The answer has always been
foot patrols. They were everywhere and it truly
helped."
- Cruz Bay business owner


when the operation comes down
there will be surprise," Foy told
the group of mostly Cruz Bay
business owners.
More Cameras, Lighting
Cameras and lighting were a big
part of the morning's conversation
as the business owners discussed
private and public security cam-
eras and how police could crack
down on crime in Cruz Bay.
"On my surveillance tapes they
are selling to locals and tourists,"
explained one business owner
about the Cruz Bay drug traffic.
"I see them do the exchange,"
added another business owner.
"My guests are scared. Mine is a
family restaurant."
"We have a lot of problems
where we are," said another res-
taurant owner. "We have seen re-
sponse time improved."


"We have called the police and
the response has been good," added
another restaurateur who said po-
lice had taken several reports, "but
both police reports were lost."
"There is drug dealing going
on all day," she added. "They sell
drugs right on the tables (when the
restaurant is closed)."
"The same guy who stands there
everyday is the guy you want,"
added another business owner.
"But, those guys know where
the cameras are," Foy interjected.
Drug Dogs Soon Come
The VIPD is in the process of
adding police dogs "for everything
- guns, drugs and everything,"
and one will be deployed to St.
John, Foy said.
"I think we should revisit the
lighting," CIT chairperson Simon
said of efforts to improve lighting


in town.
"The park needs to be lit up
more," agreed one business owner
who said there also was a need for
"more lighting to the ferry dock."
One longtime island business
owner tried to put the problem in
perspective.
"We've had problems with
crime for all the years I've been
here," said the Cruz Bay business
and property owner. "Sometimes it
gets really, really bad."
"The answer has always been
foot patrols," the businesswoman
added. "They were everywhere
and it truly helped."
"If every night there is a police-
man moving them around, if there
is a foot patrol, we have a chance
of stopping these terrible inci-
dents," she said in reference to two
recent serious assaults
"It is nothing new; this has al-
ways been an issue," she added.
"This is too small of an island. It
hurts all of us."
"This community is ready to
help," added another business
owner.
"Preventing crime is a lot
cheaper than solving a crime,"
said a business owner. "It is also
100 percent effective."


With St. John Zone Commander Relieved of Duties, VIPD Deputy Chief Foy Is Alone at Top


By Tom Oat
St. John Tradewinds
Deputy Chief Darren Foy is in
charge of the VI. Police Depart-
ment's Leander Jurgen Command
on St. John.
"The last commander was re-
lieved and has not been replaced,"
Foy told the business meeting.
The St. John command is short
on personnel at every level, the St.
John Zone Commander admitted.
"I have the least manpower of
all the (VIPD) zones," Foy said.
The St. John command is "se-
verely understaffed," he acknowl-
edged, encouraging St. John resi-
dents to apply to join the VIPD.
"The more St. Johnians we have
for officers, the best for St. John,"
Foy said.
With the possibility of several
of the experienced stateside of-
ficers who were recently sworn
in to the VIPD being assigned to
St. John, the island's Citizens In-
tegration Team chairperson Helen
Simon told Foy she had a list of
places for them to rent.
Meanwhile, the Deputy Chief
is working to improve the perfor-
mance of some members of the


Business owners met with Deputy Chief Foy on Friday,
May 22 to discuss crime and safety concerns.


department.
"They develop a bunch of atti-
tude and ways of doing their jobs,"
Foy admitted of police officers at
the St. John command. "I've tried
to change that."
"Some have been punished,"
Foy said of disciplinary action
against officers. "Some have been


moved."
While for the most part the
business owners had praise for
police officers, there were a few
complaints.
"They don't obey the rules and
regulations," said The Market-
place manager Deborah Marsh,
who complained that police ve-


hicles park in loading zones, no
parking zones and other unsafe
places. "They don't do things in a
safe fashion."
One officer "wouldn't move her
car and she caused an accident by
parking and ticketed the two other
vehicles," Marsh said.
"People watch people in uni-
form and they follow their ex-
ample," Marsh added. "It's like
they're not even serious about do-
ing their job,"
Deputy chief Foy agreed and
encouraged citizens to record the
license plates of police vehicles
involved in incidents "and I could
deal with them accordingly."
All police vehicles are now as-
signed to different squads and two
officers are assigned to each vehi-
cle for their two-week shift cycles,
Foy explained.
"I was getting heat for hav-
ing too many (police) cars on St.
John.
The accountability helps him
determine "who are strong offi-
cers and who are slacking off," the
Deputy Chief said.
"That's the only way you can
deal with these officers," said Foy.


"I could probably tell you who
they are. They develop bad habits
and I'm trying to get them out."

Love City Jumps Up for Javon at Fun Day; Scholarship Awarded to Malik Stevens


By Andrea Milam
St. John Tradewinds
The threat of rain couldn't keep
more than 100 Love City residents
from celebrating what would have
been Javon Jade Alfred's twelfth
birthday at the JJ Fun Day on Satur-
day, May 23, at the Winston Wells
ball field. "JJ," as he was affection-
ately known to friends and family,
was killed on December 22, 2004,
when he was struck by a delivery
truck as he walked home from a
school Christmas party.
JJ's mother, Deverell Alfred, has
hosted the JJ Fun Day yearly since
the boy's death to remind residents
that good can come out of tragedy.
"I did this because even though
a tragic accident happened, this is a
way of making something good out
of something bad," said Alfred. "I
want to celebrate the seven years I
had him, and to remind people that
sometimes you have to take the
time to remember what's important
in life."
Children enjoyed games, prizes
and two large inflatable bouncers at
the fun day. Members of the com-
munity served up popcorn, ham-
burgers, hot dogs and sodas.
The St. John Rotary announced
the winner of its Javon J. Alfred
Memorial Scholarship at the fun
day - none other than JJ's older
brother, Malik Stevens.
"I would like you go to George-

and John Fuller.


town and make everybody proud,"
Alfred said to her son upon hearing
he had earned the scholarship.
Stevens will attend Georgetown
in the fall and has not yet decided
on a major; however he is interest-
ed in engineering, he explained.


"I feel great," Stevens said of be-
ing awarded the scholarship named
for his younger brother.
The scholarship is a $12,500 four
year renewable award sponsored
by the St. John Rotary. Stevens will
be given $5,000 his freshman year,


$3,500 his sophomore year, $2,500
his junior year and $1,500 his se-
nior year.
Despite Stevens' relationship
to the scholarship's namesake, he
was chosen for the award based on
merit alone, explained B.J. Harris


"...this is a way of
making something good
out of something bad.
I want to celebrate the
seven years I had him
[Javon], and to remind
people that some-
times you have to take
the time to remember
what's important in life."
- Deverell Alfred,
Javon's mother


of the St. John Rotary.
"We based our choice on aca-
demics, an essay, an interview,
community service and financial
need, and Malik's score was the
highest," said Harris. "We went
into it knowing we'd have to be
exact with our calculations, and it
was easy because he got the high-
est score. Malik is an extraordinary
young man."
Second place finalist Zaid Sewer
was awarded a $2,000 scholarship,
Harris added.
Alfred was thrilled to see her
son awarded the scholarship, she
explained.
"I feel excellent," said Alfred.
"It's really special. One of my own
gets to go to college in his brother's
name."

Danish Student Interns To Present

Findings on VINP Research on May 27


St. John Tradewinds
The five Danish student interns,
Andreas Bonde Hansen, Niko-
laj Wiuff Kristensen, Galit Peleg,
Marie Veisegaard Olsen and Ag-
nes Wraae who have been work-
ing with VINP Archaeologist Ken
Wild, will present the results of
their four weeks of studies and re-
search on Wednesday, May 27, at
7 p.m. at the St. John School of the
Arts. The students will be return-
ing to Denmark on May 29.
The interns came to explore
the island in order to identify and
date plantations and structures that
have previously not been identi-
fied. Based on records from the
Danish National archives, history
student Olsen has been mapping
out the island's East End and plot-
ting probable plantation locations.
In addition, the ethnology and
archaeology students who com-
plete the five person team, brought
knowledge with them of the fami-
lies that inhabited this area from
previous research done at the Uni-
versity of Copenhagen. Their hope
is to piece together the stories of
the people that settled in those yet-
to-be-defined locations.
The Friends of VINP work in
conjunction with the Park to sup-
port this annual internship program
between the VINP and the Uni-
versity of Copenhagen, Denmark.


This partnership enables us to bet-
ter understand the rich wealth of
history on St. John.
For more information on this
program call Wild at 693-8950 or

GHS Students Share Scientific Knowledge


By Andrea Milam
St. John Tradewinds
Does mint flavored gum increase the temperature in
one's mouth? What ratio of vinegar and baking soda
makes the best volcanic explosion? Gifft Hill School
third and fourth graders answered these questions and
more with their end of the year science projects, dis-
played at a Tuesday afternoon, May 19, science fair.
Students were eager to show off their weeks of
hard work creating experiments, testing hypotheses
and analyzing data to bring them to their conclusions.
Third and fourth grade math and science teacher Jill
Hale got her students started by giving them a list of
questions to consider and Web sites to investigate.
"They got to pick any topic they wanted just as
long as it was something they could test," said Hale.
"I just really wanted them to go through the process of
asking a question, coming up with an experiment and
writing out the procedure for it, doing the experiment,
collecting data and deciding whether they proved or
disproved their hypothesis."
Other topics students investigated included the ef-
fect of laundry water runoff on plant growth, corro-
sion of metals, which type of dog food is preferred
best and which shape of arrow travels farthest.
"That student really just wanted to build a bow and
arrow, and I told him he had to come up with some-
thing to test with it," said Hale. "He tested a spear, a
cube and a pyramid at the end of each arrow, shooting
each of them a couple different times and recording
how far they traveled. Based on the average distanc-
es, he determined that the arrow with the pyramid on
it traveled farthest."
Students set up tri-fold poster boards at the science
fair displaying the question they investigated, their
hypothesis, and detailed information on their experi-
ments, including materials used and data collected.
The students were on hand to answer questions about
their research.
"You should be able to look at the display and do
the whole experiment yourself," said Hale. "Some

students shared pictures of what they did, and some
brought in their experiments, including a magnetic
motor and the exploding volcano."
Classmates, friends and family were invited to the
science fair, where the third and fourth graders were
eager to show off their experiments. This is the sec-
ond time Hale's students have put on a science fair,
and she plans to continue the tradition next year, she
explained.
"I just wanted them to be excited about science,"
said Hale. "It's become such a big deal. They do their
work at home and their families get involved, then we
all get to come together at the end of the year."
While the fair itself was a thrill for students, the
experiments themselves are the important part of the
lesson, Hale continued.
"It takes them through the whole process of sci-
entific investigation," she said. "I wanted them to
be able to share at the end because they put so much
work into it. My kids worked really, really hard."

Wagapalooza Nets $25,000 To Keep ACC Running Through December


By Mauri Elbel
St. John Tradewinds
Dogs really had something
to wag their tails about after this
year's Wagapalooza which netted
a much-needed $25,000 for the St.
John Animal Care Center.
"We were very pleased that God
smiled on the animals and held the
rain off for a brief period," said
John Fuller, ACC's treasurer. "It
was a sunny day and it quit raining
early enough on Friday to dry out
the field."
While the sun made a welcomed
appearance at the 9th annual Wa-
gapalooza on Saturday, May 16,
at the Winston Wells ball field in
Cruz Bay, the real warmth was
in the fact that the ACC secured
enough money to remain opera-
tional through December.
"All of this money will enable
us to keep the shelter open through
December and take us through to
our next fundraiser," Fuller said.
"Without this financing, we didn't
have enough money to go through
December, but this will carry us."
The ACC, a non-profit organi-
zation responsible for the rescue,
care and adoption of the island's
abused and homeless pets, relies


on three fundraisers a year - Wa-
gapalooza in May, the "Flea Mar-
ket" in October and "Christmas for
the Animals" in December.
The ACC's budget this year is
$139,000, which will enable it to
remain a no-kill shelter as well
as house and care for an average
of 10 dogs and puppies and 20 to
30 cats and kittens at a time. Until
new homes are secured for these
animals, the funds cover the cost
of food, shelter, medical attention
and a successful program which
spayed and neutered 300 animals
last year alone.
"We also have a feral cat spay/
neuter program with about 30
feeding stations around St. John
where we can concentrate the cats,
trap them and spay or neuter them
before returning them to the same
spot," Fuller said. "Each year, we
have the costs of buying 10 tons of
cat food for our feral cat program
alone."
Year after year, Wagapalooza
inspires the island's dogs and their
owners to show off their talents,
tricks and good looks during a
range of unique dog show cat-
egories, including Best Trick, Best
Lookalike, Best Lap Dog, Best

dog enforcement demonstration to the Waga crowd.


Spot and Best Tail, to name a few.
Thirty-nine dogs were entered
in this year's event, but Fuller said
at least twice that many were so-
cializing in the audience.
"It was a great day full of dogs
meeting and greeting and sniffing
and doing all the things dogs love
to do," he said.
The dog show marked the main
attraction of Wagapalooza, which
let the audience be the judge for
the second year in a row, measur-
ing their applause with the world's
only Waga-Meter.


One particularly unique catego-
ry, "Best Brother and Sister Minia-
ture Bulldog Serving Time on St.
John," featured only one entry.
"It was so great seeing these
two dogs dressed in prison stripes
as they paraded around the ball
field," Fuller said. "The category
was sponsored by a generous do-
nor who gave $500 to the ACC so
if you want to guarantee yourself
a blue ribbon next year, talk to the
ACC about sponsoring a special
category."
More than 40 volunteers helped


plan the event, set everything up
and take it all down, according
to Fuller. He said more money
was netted this year thanks to in-
creased sponsorship from the lo-
cal business community as well as
generous donations from the West
Indies Corporation and Hunter
Foods which markets Pedigree and
was handing out free bags of dog
food throughout the event.
"Our goal was $30,000 but
we were very pleased with the
$25,000 we raised," Fuller said.
"By all accounts it was a really fun
evening."
With Pyros of the Caribbean
putting on a fire show, Customs
and Immigration leading a drug-
dog demonstration, delicious food
and drinks and all of the excite-
ment that comes from watching
the dogs strut their stuff, Fuller
said Wagapalooza remains one of
the best social events in Cruz Bay.
"I heard someone say that she
has more fun at Wagapalooza than
she does at Christmas, New Year's
or the Fourth of July," Fuller said.
People can still donate to the
ACC by calling the shelter at (340)
774-1625 or visiting their website
at: http://www.stjacc.org/.

Bureaucracy Postpones Reopening of Library


By Andrea Milam
St. John Tradewinds
Renovations to the Elaine I. Sprauve Library con-
tinue a month after it was scheduled to reopen to the
public thanks to governmental red tape.
The Department of Planning and Natural Re-
source's Division of Libraries, Archives and Muse-
ums (DLAM) anticipated moving the library from
its temporary trailers back into its historic Enighed
home during National Library Week, beginning April
12. Additional work to the building's bathroom, inter-
net wiring and landscaping have pushed the opening
back to early July, DLAM's Assistant Director Don-
ald Cole explained last week.
"The bathroom in the facility was not a part of the
scope of work that originally went out," said Cole.
"When the commissioner (Robert Mathes) came in,
he said, 'no, no, no, we can't have that; we have to put
in a new bathroom.' It's like putting on a new dress
and you don't have a new pair of shoes."
DPNR had to go through the bidding process once
again for the bathroom renovation, and the contract
was approved two weeks ago. The contract for wiring
the library for internet is still making its way through
the approval process, Cole explained.
"We have to go out and get bids for any work that
costs more than $5,000," he said. "We have to run
it through the Department of Property and Procure-
ment. We really don't want to be caught in not follow-
ing the process."
The contract for landscaping also came after the
fact; however that contract has already been put out
to bid and awarded to St. John landscaping company
PropertyKing. The State Historic Preservation Office,
which DLAM has consulted with closely during the
entire renovation process, also played a part in ap-
proving the project's landscaping, Cole explained.
"We were in consultation with the Historic Pres-
ervation for the landscaping and they gave us their
blessing," said Cole. "The plan PropertyKing put
forth looked really good. Once it's all done, the li-
brary is going to be very aesthetically pleasing."
In an effort to maintain the historical nature of the
building, which dates back to 1750, species which

grounds.

have traditionally been found on the island will be
planted. Budget and maintenance were also taken into
consideration, explained PropertyKing owner Mark
Lonski.
"We're using a mix of plants that will be durable
over time," said Lonski. "We didn't go for things that
will look good at first and not last in the long run. We
chose plants that will be an investment for the future
of the library."
PropertyKing will try to rejuvenate some of the
older, larger plants on the property by improving their
health and planting around them to showcase their
beauty. The library's grounds, including the historic
graveyard, are being cleaned up.
"We will have plants dressing up the entrance to
the graveyard," said Lonski. "It's not going to be lost
behind the library anymore."
"It's such a beautiful old historic building," Lonski
continued. "We're trying to balance the building and
soften it up."
PropertyKing will continue to irrigate and main-
tain the library's grounds, Lonski added.
Cole apologized for the delay in reopening the li-
brary, which has been undergoing renovations since
June 2008.

23 of 30 authorized delegates
from Virgin Islands Posts 85, 90,

Senator-at-Large Craig W.
Barshinger is inviting island
businesses to partner with him
this summer by sponsoring Vir-
gin Islands students ages 15 to
23 for his "six-week/30 hours
per week" Summer Youth Em-
ployment Program.
Senator Barshinger seeks to
collaborate with local business-
es and agencies with the goal
of hiring 30 students territory-


Croix, St. John and St. Thomas
American Legion Membership.
President of the V.I. Legislature
Louis P. Hill, a member of Post 90,
gave the Key Note Address, and
Lt. Governor Gregory R. Francis,
a member of Post 85, also spoke
and stressed the need for Veterans
to sign up with the Veterans Affairs
Office and at the VA HealthCare
Facility in the Virgin Islands.
VIVA Director Morris Moore-
head, VIVA Assistant Director
Harry Daniel and 1st Commander
of Reactivated Post 131, St. John
Administrator Leona Smith and
Lorelei Monsanto, of the Office
of the Delegate to Congress were
also in attendance and contributed
greatly to the support of the Virgin
Islands American Legion and to all
Virgin Islands Veterans.
The members of Post 131 and
Auxiliary can be proud of their
effort for hosting this milestone
event - as this was the first time
since before the Post was deacti-
vated in 1993 that an American
Legion District Convention was
held on St. John. Congratulations
members.
Our Regular Monthly Meeting
will be Saturday, June 13, at 10:30
a.m. at the Coral Bay Agriculture
Station Terrace. All members are
encouraged to attend. We need
your input on ways to better serve
you, our Veterans and the Com-
munity. We also need volunteers
to make another milestone - the
Veteran's Ball of November 7.
At the meeting there will be a
ceremony to dispose of unservice-
able flags. Flags to be disposed of


wide. Businesses will pay the
first three weeks of the student's
salary and the Senator will pay
the remaining three weeks.
Hourly wages range from $6.55
to $8.00 depending on the stu-
dent's age.
Senator Barshinger reminds
businesses that the Summer
Youth Employment Program is
a great way to stretch employ-
ment dollars in these hard eco-
nomic times. Selected students


can be left at the Cruz Bay and
Coral Bay Fire Stations.
Again, I cannot stress enough
the importance of being a mem-
ber of Post 131 and continuing to
grow. Without a strong voice we
will not be heard. Contact Corine
Matthias at 340-779-4250 to be-
come a member.
Of equal importance is the need
for all Virgin Islands veterans to
sign up at the V.I. Veterans Affairs.
(Contact Asst. Director Harry Dan-
iel at 340-774-6100.) Veterans also
are urged to sign up at the Veterans
Caribbean Healthcare System St.
Thomas Clinic now located in new
facilities at the Medical Founda-
tion Building behind Roy L Sch-
neider Hospital (340-774-6674).
Also contact Elmo Rabsatt, Past
Commander and Post Service Of-
ficer at 340-693-8557 for informa-
tion concerning Veteran Health
and VIVA needs.
The members of Post 131 con-
tinue to fight for having an Ameri-
can Legion Department of the Vir-
gin Islands. Membership support
is needed - without numbers we
will not be heard. It is up to St.
Johnians and Virgin Islanders to
make this a reality and instill the
V.I. pride for our future younger
members.

Love City Students To Get "Fit" Thanks to Novo Nordisk Donation


By Andrea Milam
St. John Tradewinds
St. John students will now have
the opportunity to get fit at school,
and have fun doing it, thanks to
the donation of three Wii Fit game
systems by diabetes pharmaceuti-
cal company Novo Nordisk.
The Denmark-based company
donated the game systems to rep-
resentatives from Guy Benjamin
School, Julius E. Sprauve School
and Gifft Hill School on Thursday
afternoon, May 21, at the St. John
Community Foundation office.
The donation was part of Novo
Nordisk's efforts to follow its
"triple bottom line," explained
Margaret Walton, an institutional
diabetes care specialist with the
company.
"We try to be financially stable,
socially responsible and environ-
mentally aware," said Walton,
who presented the Wiis on behalf
of Novo Nordisk.

The company began its commu-
nity service in the Virgin Islands
in March, when they arrived with
500 volunteers on a cruise ship in
St. Thomas, where they painted
the exterior of Lionel Roberts Sta-
dium and cleaned up other areas of
the island with painting and land-
scaping. Novo Nordisk also raised
several thousand dollars, $3,000
of which was donated to the St.
John Community Foundation.
"It was a gift from the employ-
ees to St. John," said Community
Foundation Executive Director
Paul Devine. "We'll use the mon-
ey for a variety of projects around
St. John."
Novo Nordisk chose to donate
Wiis to the local schools in an ef-
fort to help students get healthy,
Walton explained.
"It's not just a video game," she
said. "The kids are up and moving
around. There's so much you can
do to prevent diabetes."

Knight, to receive the game sys-
tems.
GHS students plan to start an
after school Wii club, and the
game system may be used during


physical education classes as well,
according to Knight.
"The kids are excited about
starting the after school program,"
she said. "It's great because they'll
be moving with it, and it takes a
lot of coordination."
GBS and JESS guidance coun-
selor Claudette Cross, who ac-
cepted the game system on behalf
of the island's two public schools,
knew the schools would have no
trouble finding a place for the Wii
Fits, she explained.
"I think it's wonderful, a great
idea," said Cross. "Between the
physical education teacher and the
nurse, I think it will have a very
important place at the schools."
JESS Administrator's Officer
Cleamena Duncan was also ex-
cited about receiving the game
system.
"I'm proud, and honored onbe-
half of principal Mario Francis,"
said Duncan.

Historical Bits


& Pieces
by Chuck Pishko


The Father-in-Law of Europe


St. John Tradewinds
In Denmark - An Official Handbook published
by the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs provides a
reader with "concise and accurate" information about
Denmark including historical events like the painting
of King Christian IX family shown above.
In the 1880s, Denmark played a major geopoliti-
cal role in Europe by providing kings or queens to
their powerful neighboring countries through royal
marriages.
The large family of Christian IX and Queen Lou-
ise was gathered at Fredensborg Castle. The painting
shows the King and Queen seated on the sofa. Seated
on the left is the Prince of Wales (later Edward VII)
and behind him are his wife, Alexandra and their son
the Duke of Clarence, Albert Victor.
In the center, Czar Alexander III stands with his
wife Empress Dagmar. Crown Princess Louise is on
the sofa to the right of the Czar. Behind her, King
George of the Hellenes and Crown Prince Frederik.
Standing-Queen Olga. Behind the King and Queen
of Denmark are Thyra, Duchess of Cumberland and
Prince Valdemar (a VI visitor). The two boys near the
door are Prince Christian (the Tenth) and the later Czar
Nicholas II. Nearer the gilt fireguard is Prince Carl (a
St. John visitor),who later became King Haakon of
Norway (Lauritz Tuxen, 1884, Christiansborg).


I could understand the connections with the major
powers but not Greece! Last October my wife Terry
and I spent a couple of days in Athens, Greece where
after touring the expected historical sites, including
the fabulous National Archeological Museum, we de-
cided to find out about King George.
I gave up trying to find the Danish Embassy which
has moved several times and happened upon the
National Historical Museum where we found an en-
tire room dedicated to his reign where we saw and
learned of his accomplishments. His desk and other
furniture was there as well as a handsome portrait.
He ruled as the King of Greece from 1863 to 1913.
He was elected King by the Greek National Assembly
on the suggestion and support of the Great Powers;
Britain, France and Russia. He quickly learned Greek
and called for a constitution establishing an Assembly
with elected representatives. King George brought
Greece the status of a European power.
The King of Greece revived the Olympic Games
and united all Greeks within a single territory. He
further united Christian Balkan countries against the
Ottoman Empire. Unfortunately, this led to his assas-
sination in Salonika in 1913.
Apparently, the sage advice "it's good to be the
King" offered by political analyst and St. John visitor
Mel Brooks doesn't always apply.

11-year-old Presses Officials on Gang Activities


St. John Tradewinds
Serious questions from a 11-
year-old St. Johnian highlighted
the second in a series of deJongh
administration St. John neighbor-
hood meetings at the Gifft Hill
School on Thursday, May 21.
Gov. John P. deJongh Jr. was
out of the territory for the meeting,
but Lt. Gov. Gregory Francis led
the delegation of public officials
meeting with Estate Bethany, Gift
Hill and Pastory residents.
The typical exchange of com-
plaints, and concerns about roads,
traffic, speed bumps and concrete
spills from the crowd of more than
50 neighborhood residents brought
the typical platitudes and explana-
tions from the dozen officials in
attendance.
Guy H. Benjamin School fifth
grader Jah-Haille Bruce took his
turn at the microphone and iden-
tified himself before addressing
VIPD Deputy Chief Darren Foy.
"What are you guys going to do
about the gang violence?" asked
Bruce - whose grandfather, is-
land teacher and musician Eddie
Bruce, had addressed the officials
earlier in the meeting about neigh-
borhood traffic safety concerns.

Top government officials met with residents at a town
meeting on Thursday, May 20.


"The VIPD and the Education
Department are forming an alli-
ance," responded Deputy Chief
Darren Foy. "We're trying to de-
velop some new laws for the legis-
lature to enact."
"The VIPD is paying real atten-
tion to that," added VIPD Deputy
Commissioner Novelle Francis.
"The Governor has taken this up
as a priority."
"There are certain areas of St.
John where (gang) colors are be-
ing worn" and there are incidents
of spray painting of gang-related
graffiti, the Deputy Commissioner
admitted.


"I challenge everyone here to-
day," added Lt. Gov. Francis. "The
parents have to take care of the
home. It starts from home. Parents
take charge of your children."
Their young inquisitor wasn't
completely satisfied with the an-
swers, so Bruce pressed the of-
ficials with a follow-up question
on what they could do other than
cleaning up gang graffiti.
"What do you guys do after
that?" the young man asked -
with polite persistence.
Jah-Haille was assured there
was legislation in the works which
would better address the problem.

St. John Driver Offers Personal Analysis of Island Roads


Dear Editor
A recent article in the VI. Daily News reported that
the V.I. Public Works Department has contracted with
PB America, a stateside firm, for approximately $1.1
million to develop a traffic flow analysis plan. Funds
are to come from the Federal Highway Administra-
tion.
On St. John, the data collection consisted of tubes
on Route 10 Centerline Road to get traffic counts and
to determine peak usage.
I'll help out a bit. No charge. There is a lot of traf-
fic on Centerline Road early in the morning and late
in the afternoon. Mid-day, there is a bit less. During
the height of tourist season, there is more traffic. In
August and September, there is less.
But, there is more. Here are some of the other
problems with Centerline Road.
1. The road is in continual disrepair, with numer-
ous potholes.
2. There is no striping defining the lanes. I am
tired of dodging all kinds of vehicles coming at me
on the wrong side of the road. Especially annoying
are the buses, consistently 3-4 feet over the center,
forcing oncoming traffic off the road. Accidents are
inevitable. In fact, there was a serious accident about
a year ago.
3. A number of the rails are now way too low, since
the road has been raised a number of times.
4. There are long stretches without street lights,
making driving very difficult at night. Especially
dangerous are the many "S" turns just past Bordeaux
heading towards Coral Bay.
5. There are no reflectors, either in the road or on
the side, to help nighttime driving.
6. There are no berms or breakdown lanes. Going


towards Cruz Bay in the left lane, if you stray too
far left you will go into the woods. (I have witnessed
at least 3 cars in the woods the past year.) Going to-
wards Coral Bay in the left lane past Bordeaux, if you
stray too far left, you will end up in a culvert.
7. The very few signs are old and dirty. For ex-
ample, how about a simple sign at the intersection of
Centerline and Route 20 (next to Columbo's). Coral
Bay 2 miles, North Shore Beaches 1 mile.
8. Cars speed on the road, since there is no enforce-
ment of the speed limits. There have been reports of
drag racing on the flat section near Catherineburg.
9. During 2008, a crew of surveyors spent at least
a week on Centerline Road. I asked one of them what
he was surveying. He told me he was getting altitude
readings for future signage. I can't figure out the val-
ue of this and who set it as a priority.
10. The wonderful, colorful and informative signs
at the Coral Bay Triangle have been removed.
When the Federal Highway Administration sup-
plies funds for public roadways, it requires the road-
ways meet minimal standards in many areas, espe-
cially for the safety of the users. Signs, reflectors,
striping, railings, breakdown lanes, lighting, etc. I am
trying to find out (1) exactly what these requirements
are in the Virgin Islands, (2) whether or not Center-
line Road meets them, (3) who has the responsibility/
oversight of this road in the Virgin Islands Govern-
ment and in the FHA, and (4) when will conditions
be corrected.
As a first step, I am sending a copy of this letter to
a few local officials for any comments they may have.
Follow-up with FHA is expected in a few weeks.
Sincerely, Gerry Hills
Frequent traveler of Centerline Road, St. John


Dear Editor
It was a nice Tuesday afternoon in St John when
my buddies and I decided to go to the beach. We took
my good friend's car out to Cinnamon Beach. All of
us had a great time playing Frisbee and swimming in
the waves. Eventually my friends Zach and Clint had
to be back in town for work, so we took off.
As we were passing Hawksnest Beach, I realized
that my backpack wasn't in the car. This is when I
started to panic. It had fallen out of the car a ways
back. In my bag I had my identification, clothes, I Pod,
some books, and my 500-dollar paycheck, which was
all cash. My heart was pumping as my friend Alex
and I raced back to Cinnamon.
As soon as we were close, I jumped out and ran
all over the area we had originally parked at. I found
nothing. We checked everywhere. My bag with all my
stuff was gone, and I felt like an idiot. How could I
lose sight of something of such value to me? I left my
information at the check in desk at Cinnamon, and
we left.
When we got to town, I went to the police station
and Connections and gave them my number. At this
point I'm hoping that maybe some one will just turn
in my personal stuff. A couple of people told me to
give it some time and have faith in "the goodness of
people." I was very skeptical that someone would re-
turn my stuff with the cash, especially in hard eco-


nomic times like this.
I was watching the flag football game Thursday
night and decided to stop in the police station and see
if anything had come up. The officer said someone
left an anonymous tip about where the bag was, and
that he had sent someone to get it. I was very excited.
The cops then showed up with my backpack, and I in-
stantly went through it. As I was rummaging through
the bag, I found that not one single thing was missing.
Everything that I lost the day before was in my bag
including all of my money. I was shocked. I thought I
might get my stuff back, but never with the money!
Losing my bag was something that I never want to
go through again, but it made me realize how badly
I underestimated "the goodness in people." Someone
could have taken all the money and ditched my bag,
but they didn't, and I am grateful for that. Every day
people do good deeds and don't get enough credit. I
believe that Karma evens things out. So if someone is
not congratulating you every time you do something
good, who cares, things will work out in the end.

Resident Questions VIPD Shenanigans


Editor:
Your newspaper regularly tracks the shenanigans
of the Virgin Islands Police Department. Would an
audit of traffic tickets handed out on St. John reveal a
lengthy pattern of summons to white people, way out
of proportion to their number in the population? I'm
afraid so. Is this pattern in violation of federal stat-
utes? Indeed it is. The United States Department of
Justice is already scrutinizing the VIPD. Now US At-
torney General, Eric Holder can take a closer look.
Yes, racism is ugly. Just ask any black Virgin Is-
lander who gets yanked off the road for absolutely no
reason while visiting the States, or who cannot hail
a cab in Manhattan. This does not alter the fact that
police officers who slack off when they should be pa-
trolling are regularly under the gun to make up their
quota. Tourists or people who look like tourists are
a favorite target because they will not be around to
complain. But in a pinch, any local white person will
do.
Today I was convicted of "failing to yield to an
emergency vehicle" and ordered to pay a fine and
court cost because two police officers perjured them-
selves. (Your paper printed my letter in your April
13th issue.) The arresting officer, who is well known
on St John as a hot head, lied on the witness stand. His
lady friend, a detective (whose "plainclothes" consist
of a pink tee shirt and a pair of white shorts), perjured
herself to back him up, although she was too far away
(50 feet) to hear one word of our conversation on the
day in question, and could not identify me in court.
Neither one could establish that there was an
"emergency." In addition, the officer (who had to
be summoned to the courtroom three times) put the
wrong date on my ticket. Did it bother Judge Michael
Dunston that my ticket was dated April 7 although


the incident took place on April 8th? Not a bit. Was
either officer actually on the roster on Wednesday,
April 8th? Interestingly, my case was left off of the
docket and initially I was told to leave.
But I hung around anyway, and low and behold,
the case was called by the traffic clerk after all! Will
the VI Department of Justice and VIPD continue to
close ranks when a cop breaks the law? It's so much
easier to slam the lid down and sweep it under the rug,
than to solve the problem.
Why did the Assistant Attorney General ask many
questions to which he did not know the answer? Not
enough practice in traffic court? The many people I
have spoken to who have had experiences similar to
mine told me they just "let it go." What if every St
Johnian who got one of these contrived tickets took
an hour of the court's time to dispute it? Now there's
a thought; talk about backlog!
So, will the officer continue to run amuck on St.
John? What's stopping him? Will the Virgin Islands
Justice Department continue to spend time and effort
bailing him out? It should be second nature by now.
Did the detective lie on the stand because she feared
for her job or because the officer is a special friend?
Does it matter? And would she lie in a felony case?
What do you think? Will the VIPD continue to re-
cruit, hire and promote a caliber of officer like the
pair mentioned above? Why change now? We're so
used to the dregs.
Will cops continue to hand out contrived traffic
violations? Who's going to stop 'em? Will they con-
tinue to lie under oath? Nobody seems to mind. Will
any of the open homicide cases and attempted murder
cases be closed any time soon? Don't be silly.

7Q La3


Recycling: Why Is It Important? What Can We Do?


Dear Editor,
Recycling - Why is it important and what can we
do about it? The most palatable answer is that it will
save all of us money. The best reason is that it is the
right thing to do. About half of all the things we throw
away could be recycled if a program was put in place.
Imagine our landfills being half the size. Just the rec-
lamation of public land would be reason enough to
start a massive recycling effort in the Virgin Islands.
The Virgin Islands are an environmentally fragile
place and every effort must be taken to ensure that our
lands and waters are free from any possible contami-
nants. Recycling can go a long way to prevent this but
we need a major plan to do it.
Already, recyclers across the Virgin Islands are ac-
tively finding ways to help. From compost collection
to help farmers to recycling aluminum cans, grass-
roots organizations are taking the lead and those ef-
forts have proven to be worthwhile. What is needed
is a firm commitment from government to help the
effort on a much grander scale.
On St. John, citizens have gathered to make recy-


cling a reality. Starting with aluminum can collec-
tions, the Recycling Association of the Virgin Islands
(RAVI), St. John Chapter has shown that, if given the
chance, people will recycle. That chance came when
RAVI St. John placed home-made recycling bins
across St. John.
The result was overwhelming! Tons of aluminum
cans are being collected at a rate even the organizers
never imagined. Through a partnership with Waste
Management Authority (WMA), larger bins were
placed at strategic locations and permission to use
government land at Enighed Pond as a staging area
was granted. This, along with an increasing commit-
ment from business has doubled the collection of alu-
minum cans across the island in just a few months.
The process is simple: collect cans at home or at
your business and place them in the many bins around
the island or bring them directly to the staging area.
From there, RAVI volunteers transport to a metals
firm on St. Thomas to be shipped off-island.
Since September of 2008, St. John volunteers or

Police Department St. John Deputy Chief Darren Foy met with more than 20 St. John residents and business owners to discuss St. John crime Friday, May 22 — and he gave them his cellular telephone number while urging them to call him anytime. “The purpose of this meeting is to try to get a plan in place, a better process for communication,” mon, chairperson of the island’s don’t put a control on this, tourism is going to suffer.” “What can be done by business owners to help the situation?” Simon asked Deputy Chief Foy. rights do I have?” one downtown landlord and businessman asked.

Open Drug Dealing Wharfside Village business owners complained of drug dealers operating openly in the waterfront could make them move on,” one Wharfside business owner said. “There should be patrols every shift, every day,” said Foy, who asked all those at the meeting to call him personally with complaints and concerns. “Wherever there is a hot spot, just let me know,” the Deputy Chief added. “The biggest problem we have doesn’t want to cooperate,” said Foy who promised there will be continued enforcement action in that area. “I’m going to keep it vague so when the operation comes down there will be surprise,” Foy told business owners. More Cameras, Lighting Cameras and lighting were a big part of the morning’s conversation as the business owners discussed private and public security cam eras and how police could crack “On my surveillance tapes they are selling to locals and tourists,” added another business owner. “My guests are scared. Mine is a family restaurant.” “We have a lot of problems where we are,” said another restaurant owner. “We have seen response time improved.” “We have called the police and the response has been good,” added another restaurateur who said police had taken several reports, “but both police reports were lost.” “There is drug dealing going on all day,” she added. “They sell “The same guy who stands there everyday is the guy you want,” added another business owner. “But, those guys know where the cameras are,” Foy interjected. Drug Dogs Soon Come The VIPD is in the process of adding police dogs “for everything — guns, drugs and everything,” and one will be deployed to St. John, Foy said. “I think we should revisit the lighting,” CIT chairperson Simon said of efforts to improve lighting in town. “The park needs to be lit up more,” agreed one business owner who said there also was a need for “more lighting to the ferry dock.” One longtime island business owner tried to put the problem in perspective. “We’ve had problems with crime for all the years I’ve been and property owner. “Sometimes it gets really, really bad.” “The answer has always been foot patrols,” the businesswoman added. “They were everywhere and it truly helped.” “If every night there is a police man moving them around, if there is a foot patrol, we have a chance of stopping these terrible inci dents,” she said in reference to two recent serious assaults “It is nothing new; this has always been an issue,” she added. “This is too small of an island. It hurts all of us.” “This community is ready to help,” added another business owner. “Preventing crime is a lot cheaper than solving a crime,” said a business owner. “It is also 100 percent effective.” By Tom Oat St. John Tradewinds Deputy Chief Darren Foy is in charge of the V.I.

Students were eager to show off their weeks of Third and fourth grade math and science teacher Jill Hale got her students started by giving them a list of questions to consider and Web sites to investigate. “They got to pick any topic they wanted just as long as it was something they could test,” said Hale. “I just really wanted them to go through the process of collecting data and deciding whether they proved or disproved their hypothesis.” Other topics students investigated included the effect of laundry water runoff on plant growth, corrosion of metals, which type of dog food is preferred best and which shape of arrow travels farthest. “That student really just wanted to build a bow and arrow, and I told him he had to come up with something to test with it,” said Hale. “He tested a spear, a cube and a pyramid at the end of each arrow, shooting each of them a couple different times and recording how far they traveled. Based on the average distanc es, he determined that the arrow with the pyramid on it traveled farthest.” Students set up tri-fold poster boards at the science fair displaying the question they investigated, their ments, including materials used and data collected.

I found nothing. We checked everywhere. My bag with all my stuff was gone, and I felt like an idiot. How could I lose sight of something of such value to me? I left my information at the check in desk at Cinnamon, and we left. When we got to town, I went to the police station point I’m hoping that maybe some one will just turn give it some time and have faith in “the goodness of people.” I was very skeptical that someone would return my stuff with the cash, especially in hard economic times like this. night and decided to stop in the police station and see left an anonymous tip about where the bag was, and The cops then showed up with my backpack, and I inthe bag, I found that not one single thing was missing. Everything that I lost the day before was in my bag including all of my money. I was shocked. I thought I might get my stuff back, but never with the money! I underestimated “the goodness in people.” Someone could have taken all the money and ditched my bag, but they didn’t, and I am grateful for that. Every day people do good deeds and don’t get enough credit. I believe that Karma evens things out. So if someone is not congratulating you every time you do something good, who cares, things will work out in the end.

This, along with an increasing commit ment from business has doubled the collection of aluminum cans across the island in just a few months.
