Caneel Bay Employee Suffers Minor


Injuries After Being Run Over by Boat


By Andrea Milam
St. John Tradewinds
An employee of the Caneel Bay
Resort suffered lacerations to his
shoulder after a boating accident
on Friday evening, May 22. The
employee borrowed the boat from
the resort and was just leaving
Caneel when the accident occurred
around 10 p.m.
The man lost control of the boat
when his shirt became stuck in the
steering wheel, explained VI. Na-
tional Park Acting Chief Ranger
Jeff Mihan.
"When he was leaving the boat
channel, he went up on plane and
his shirt got caught on the knob of
the steering wheel," said Mihan.


"This caused him to lose control
of the steering wheel, which shift-
ed all the way to the right. He was
thrown from the boat."
As the victim managed to stay
afloat in the water, the boat, whose
steering wheel was turned all the
way to the right, began motor-
ing in circles. The man narrowly
avoided being completely run over
by the vessel.
"The boat started circling and
it came right back toward him,"
said Mihan. "He was able to swim
down far enough to where the pro-
peller just knicked his shoulder."
St. John EMS, St. John Rescue
and the VINP responded to the
scene. EMS recovered the vic-


tim, who was being examined on
Cancel's dock when the VINP and
St. John Rescue arrived by water.
In the meantime, the boat had
become tangled in a VINP moor-
ing at Honeymoon Beach.
The man was transported to
Myrah Keating Smith Community
Health Center and released. He is
expected to make a full recovery.
No citations will be issued in
the incident, Mihan added.
"Everyone involved in the
incident on May 22 is healthy
and well," said Kristin Hutton
of Hawkins International PR,
Cancel's public relations firm.
"We cannot comment further on
our employees at this time."

St. John Hosts Sea Space Symposium


By Chuck Pishko
St. John Tradewinds
Many of people had been anx-
iously waiting for the return of the
space shuttle Atlantis in late May.
Beginning with the cracked tiles
at takeoff, to the five spacewalks
needed to fix the Hubble telescope,
to the delayed reentry, the mission
was a nail-biter.
But as the astronauts worked
through their space mission above,
a group of astronauts, aquanauts
and other scientists who led and
supported similar missions, as well
as others in government, industry
and academia met on St. John in
mid-May to exchange technologi-
cal advances in the field of sea and
space exploration.
The symposium successfully
brought together the S3 members
who continue to advance technolo-
gies related to sea and space. Ex-
periences and technologies were
shared which are an integral part of
today's sea and space programs.
Dr. Ian Koblick, who was the
government and industrial liaison
on the two Tektite programs on St.
John as well as underwater mis-
sions in Puerto Rico and Key Lar-
go, led the Sea Space Symposium
(S3) here. Dr Koblick is currently
the Director of the Marine Re-
sources Development Foundation
which continues to conduct valu-
able research and educational pro-

grams supporting the U.S. sea and
space programs. He was joined by
Scott Carpenter, the world's first
astronaut/aquanaut, who went on
to lead the Navy's Deep Submer-
gence Systems Project.
As an aside, you'll recall that
in those days the space capsule
was parachuted into the sea. It


was imperative to secure the as-
tronaut's capsule with a flotation
device. The U.S.S. Intrepid was
positioned in the South Atlantic
reentry zone and ready to pick up
Astronaut Carpenter. Unfortunate-
ly, the space capsule landed 250
miles from the zone. It was full
speed ahead for the Intrepid. My


older brother, Pat, was a member
of the crew and remembers well
that dash to pick up Carpenter. The
carrier shook and vibrated so much
that the light bulbs literally fell out
of their sockets.
Astronauts Buzz Aldrin and
Guy Bluford also attended the
symposium. Col. Aldrin complet-


Toxic Gases in Cistern Caused Death of Construction Worker


By Andrea Milam
St. John Tradewinds
Toxic gases were to blame in
the death of Fritzner Referve, 43,
of St. Thomas, according to the
findings of VI. Medical Examiner
Francisco Landron.
Referve died in the early morn-
ing hours of Friday, May 22, after
he was overcome the previous
day while working in a cistern at
a home under construction in Fish
Bay.
Referve died almost 24 hours
after collapsing upon entering the
recently-poured concrete cistern,
and a St. John man was treated at
Myrah Keating Smith Community
Health Center and released. The
St. John man is said to be doing
well and is back on the job.
Referve suffered "acute dam-
age to the lungs," Landron said in
published reports. Toxicological
studies will be done, according to


"He was dead when they pulled him out.
They brought him back with CPR..."
-Chief Gilly Grimes, St. John Rescue responder


reports.
Referve went into the cistern,
which had been poured two to three
weeks prior to the incident, to be-
gin stripping formwork and almost
immediately lost consciousness,
according to those on the scene.
The St. John man who went into
the cistern after Referve moved in
and out of consciousness.
"The first man was immedi-
ately overcome and passed out
face down in the cistern from what
we're told," said St. John Rescue
Chief Gilly Grimes, who respond-
ed to the call for help. "The other
guy started losing consciousness
as well. The homeowner tried to


go into the cistern as well and soon
realized he couldn't breathe."
St. John Rescue volunteer Pres-
ton Pollock, who was first to arrive
on the scene, gave oxygen to the
homeowner and tied a line around
the other two men to pull them out,
Grimes continued.
Rescue personnel commenced
CPR on Referve, who was not
breathing and had no pulse when
he was pulled from the cistern,
Grimes explained.
"He was dead when they pulled
him out," said Grimes. "They
brought him back with CPR and
got his heart going again. We were
intubating him, and at that point


EMS was on scene."
Referve, who was never alert
after being pulled from the cistern,
was transported to MKSCHC by
EMS. The man "coded" twice on
the way to the health center, ac-
cording to Grimes. Referve was
transported to Roy L. Schneider
Hospital on St. Thomas at 12:50
p.m. that afternoon, and was pro-
nounced dead there at 3:42 a.m. on
Friday, May 22.
"I never got a whiff of the cis-
tern myself, so I don't know what
was down in there," said Grimes.
lisuIll% when concrete cures, it
sucks all the oxygen out. I don't
know if that was the case here,
but it was definitely some form of
oxygen deprivation."
Curing concrete is a chemical
process which releases carbon
dioxide, however the coroner's
report did not point to this as the
cause for Referve's death.


ed a four-day flight in the Gemini
12 space craft as well as being the
lunar module pilot for Apollo 11
where he followed Neil Armstrong
onto the moon. Astronaut Bluford
flew the third Challenger mis-
sion which featured the first night
launch and night landing. He flew
one other Challenger and two Dis-
covery missions. He was the first
African American astronaut and
still serves as a great role model
for all young people interested in
space.
Others attending included lo-
cals who worked on the Tektite
projects and La Chalupa in Puerto
Rico. Alvin White, the head Tek-
tite diver, who passed last year was
remembered in a most respectful
way. Dr. Koblick and Col. Carpen-
ter called on White's widow, Mary
White, during a symposium break
to express their condolences and to
thank her for her work during Tek-
tite. They credited Mike Sheen, a
St. Thomian who dove during the
Tektite and La Chalupa programs,
for arranging this thoughtful meet-
ing.
The participants also heard from
Randy Brown of Clean Islands In-
ternational, who now manages the
Tektite site as the Virgin Islands
Environmental Resource Station
where educational and scientific
programs continue to be carried
out.

St. John Tradewinds
Island residents awoke Monday
morning, May 25, talking about
the deaths of two residents over
the weekend, but the V.I. Medical
Examiner found no signs of foul
play after conducting autopsies on
Tuesday, May 26.
Because of recent community
concern over late-night violence in
Cruz Bay, VIPD Forensic officers
observing the autopsies quickly
reported the Medical Examiners'
findings to St. John Deputy Chief
Darren Foy and VIPD officials
communicated the results to the
media.
Parris Drowning
The body of Camille Parris Sr.,
73, was discovered at about 11:30
a.m. Sunday, May 24, floating in
the area of the Loredon L. Boynes
Sr. Ferry Terminal dock in Cruz
Bay.
Parris was last seen alive by a
friend who dropped him off at the
ferry dock, according to Deputy
Chief Foy. Parris's death is now
officially listed as a drowning, ac-
cording to the VIPD.
Medical Examiner Dr. Fran-
cisco Landron ruled the cause of
death was consistent with drown-
ing and there was no indication of
foul play, according to reports.
Powell Death
The body of St. John resident
Ariel Powell was found unrespon-
sive near his vehicle in the parking
lot of the Myrah Keating Smith
Community Health Center on Sat-
urday, May 23, at about 4:40 a.m.,
according to police.
Dr. Landron ruled Powell's
death was due to existing medical
complications. Powell, who re-
portedly had undergone his regular
dialysis treatment on Friday, May
22, had reported he was involved
in an altercation in downtown
Cruz Bay sometime that night, ac-


cording to a VIPD press release.
Police on St. John initially were
investigating the death of Powell,
according to a preliminary report
from Deputy Chief Foy, although
Foy initially said Powell may have
succumbed to an on-going medical
condition.
The initial police investigation
revealed that Powell was at a night
club previous to going to the clinic
and told a family member he was
beat up by several males, accord-
ing the VIPD.
Powell drove himself to the
clinic where he apparently passed
out in the parking lot, according
to preliminary VIPD information.
Medical personnel told police
Powell had a scratch on his face
and a bump on his head, the VIPD
reported.
"There was no evidence of trau-
ma" in the Powell autopsy, Lan-
dron said in published reports.
Assault Incident
St. John police were also inves-
tigating a reported Third Degree
Assault that occurred at about
3:58 a.m. Saturday, May 23 in the
vicinity of the "Find Deh Spot"
nightclub.
A male victim was found ly-
ing on the ground in the Penn's
Trucking yard, located across the
street from the night club, Deputy
Chief Foy said in a press release.
The victim sustained bruises to his
face, according to the release.
The police are following "solid
leads" in the case, according to
Deputy Chief Foy who asked if
anyone has information on the as-
sault they should call the Leander
Jurgen Command at 693-8880 and
ask for the Deputy Chief or call
the Criminal Investigation Bureau
at 715-5522 and ask for Detective
Cassandra Vincent. Residents can
also call Crime Stoppers USVI at
800-222-TIPS.

New Owner of Cap's Place Brings Popular Downtown Spot Back To Life


By Tom Oat
St. John Tradewinds
Miguel Mondesir wanted to call
his renovated Cruz Bay bar and
restaurant The New Cap's Place,
but he changed his mind as he
learned more about the popular bar
and restaurant facing the Ubaldina
Simmonds U.S. Post Office.
Mondesir, a native of the Do-
minican Republic and a St. Thom-
as resident since 1990, doesn't
have any restaurant or bar experi-
ence, but he does know a success-
ful business when he sees one.
"I had intended to put 'The New
Cap's Place,' but I want people to
feel that it's the same place," the
longtime businessman said. "Cap's
has its customers."
That clientele will enjoy an ex-
panded menu of Spanish American
and American food for breakfast,
lunch and dinner - about 20 hours
a day, according to Mondesir, who
most recently owned the Nadir
Esso near the "bridge to nowhere"
on St. Thomas.
Extensive Renovations
Mondesir said he undertook a
major renovation of the rambling
one-story structure "when I saw
the condition it was in and the
amount of support that we have,"
but the businessman took great
care to rebuild the sidewalk restau-
rant in much the same design.
Otherwise, the simple wood-


"People have been supporting Cap's for so
long they just needed a clean environment...
very good customer service - to attract tour-
ists and locals."
Miguel Mondesir, Cap's Place owner


paneled interior and built-in bar
of the old Cap's Place have been
almost painstakingly recreated -
and Mondesir is keeping the name
Cap's Place.
Expanding Menu
"People have been supporting
Cap's for so long they just needed
a clean environment," said Monde-
sir, who also promised "very good
customer service - to attract tour-
ists and locals."
"I want to see everyone happy
and free to enjoy themselves,"
Mondesir added.
To achieve his goal, Mondesir
is expanding the restaurant's local
menu to include hamburgers and
french fries in addition to salads
and cold sandwiches.
The new old Cap's Place will be
"more than just a drinking place,"
Mondesir said.
"We have to really help to keep
the tourists coming," he empha-
sized. "One of the things is to have
the place well represented."
"One of the things I plan to have
is grass roots bands, people from


the old time, promotional stuff,"
Mondesir said, in addition to host-
ing small functions such as class
reunions and family parties.
Mondesir also plans a Saturday
morning menu of "special dishes"
including kallaloo, fungi, saltfish,
dumpling and other island dishes.
Concerns About Crime
Mondesir is well aware of the
current concerns about late-night
crime in Cruz Bay and wants to
help make the island's nightlife
safer. The former owner of Cap's
Place, Juan Ayala, was shot and
killed in a morning robbery outside
his Pastory home on January 5.
"I had a little concern about it,
but the community is responsible
to watch out for people that could
be a danger," Mondesir said. "I al-
ways believe in cooperating with
authorities."
"If we don't take a step forward
we won't make any progress to
control the crime," Mondesir said.
"I would really like to get as much
cooperation with authorities re-
sponding."


Cap's Place had a grand opening party on Sunday, May
31. Patrons could enjoy the expanded food menu, which
included items such as fried chicken, pates, seafood salad
and pasta salad.

By Mauri Elbel
St. John Tradewinds
Drawing contestants from as
far away as Alaska and England, it
is safe to say the Beach-to-Beach
Power Swim on St. John has made
quite a splash over the years.
"It has been coined as the most
beautiful open water swim in the
world, which is one of the reasons
we are attracting people from all
over the world," said Noreen Ca-
vanaugh, director of development
for The Friends of Virgin Islands
National Park. "Open water swims
happen all over the world, and peo-
ple who have traveled all around
to do them say that this one on St.
John is the most beautiful."
The Friends of the VINP hosted
its sixth annual power swim on
Sunday, May 24, generating a re-
cord number of participants and
approximately $15,000 that will
benefit its many programs, accord-
ing to Joe Kessler, Friends presi-
dent.
"It was a fantastic day in terms
of numbers - 238 people signed up
and 218 showed up to swim that
day," Cavanaugh said. "We saw a
45 percent increase over last year's
registration, which is huge."
Cavanaugh said the nearly 50
percent increase helped the Friends
raise more money than ever from
the event.
"Thanks to the wonderful com-
munity support, we were able to
cut expenses for food and other do-
nated products like t-shirts which


Augusto Cividini, 15, born and raised on St. John, was
the first to cross the long course finish line.


helped us save on costs and make
a greater profit," she said.
Funds raised from the event will
go toward an array of different
Friends programs, which assists
the VINP by funding and support-
ing projects which protect and pre-
serve resources and enhance envi-
ronmental awareness, Cavanaugh
explained.
"The money raised from the
Beach-to-Beach Power Swim will
go toward lots of different proj-
ects," the director of development
said. "One of the many programs
this fundraiser will directly sup-
port is our summer program that
teaches kids on the island how to
swim."
The open water race consisted


of three courses: a 1-mile course
from Maho Bay to Cinnamon Bay;
an intermediate 2.25-mile course
from Maho to Trunk Bay and a
long course from Maho to Hawk-
snest Bay that ranged between
3.25- and 3.5-miles, depending on
how closely swimmers followed
the course. Participants also had
the option of competing in one of
the "assisted" categories which al-
lowed them to use snorkels and/or
fins.
"It was a perfect day on the wa-
ter for a swim - the weather was
great, we had low seas and it was a
very safe swim," Cavanaugh said.
Safety is a top priority during
the Beach-to-Beach Power Swim,

Youth Conservation Corp Doubles Participants

This Year, 16 Island Youth To Work in VINP


By Mauri Elbel
St. John Tradewinds
As the school year dwindles to a close, 16 lucky
youth will get to participate in the Virgin Islands Na-
tional Park's Youth Conservation Corp (YCC) Pro-
gram this summer.
"This program is one of the ways we hope to in-
spire the youth of St. John to be the next leaders of the
Virgin Islands National Park," said Mark Hardgrove,
VINP's superintendent. "In the past, we've had be-
tween four and eight young adults, but the program
was so successful last year that we requested addi-
tional funding from the National Park Service and we
are really looking forward to working with 16 young
adults this year."
The YCC will not only provide 16 young men and
women living on St. John or St. Thomas with the op-
portunity to gain a greater understanding and appre-
ciation of the park's conservation mission, but it will
also give them a chance to earn some extra money,
Hardgrove said.
The program's participants will be able to earn
around $2,000 during the eight-week program, which
begins Monday, June 22, and ends Friday, August 14,
Hardgrove explained.
"With many of our families in distress because of
the economy, this is a great opportunity for the stu-
dents to give back to their families," he said. "And
this is a great way to see if they would like to build a
career within the National Park Service."


The main focus of this year's program will be im-
proving safety in and around the park, according to
Hardgrove. The 16 young men and women will be
involved in a variety of duties associated with all five
divisions of the park - administration, facility man-
agement, archives, resource management and law en-
forcement.
A few projects slated for the summer include: in-
stalling new trail signs to help visitors better navigate
the park; repairing trails, campgrounds and picnic fa-
cilities which have been damaged by torrential rains;
preserving ruins, and working on a shoreline stabi-
lization project at Cinnamon Bay Campground that
will protect the oldest building on St. John, the Cin-
namon Bay Warehouse.
Because more than 16 applicants are expected, the
names of eight males and eight females will be select-
ed randomly from a hat and be called in to meet with
program leaders and their parents, Hardgrove added.
"We will ask the young adults to make a commit-
ment - for most of them, this will be their first job,"
he said. "This is a great way for kids this age to learn
a lot about themselves and about working toward a
goal."
YCC applicants must be between the ages of 15
and 18, be a U.S. citizen or have permanent residency
status and turn their application in by Friday, June 12.
Applications are available at the National Park Visitor
Center in Cruz Bay between the hours of 8 a.m. and
4:30 p.m. and at Connections.

The V.I. Legislature currently has no plans to consider
a re-zoning request for the proposed new post office
location, above.


Rezoning of Future Post Office Site

Not Yet on Legislature's Agenda


By Andrea Milam
St. John Tradewinds
The construction of a new St.
John post office has hit a stand-
still as the family which owns the
Estate Enighed site of the future
facility awaits its request for the
rezoning of the parcel to be heard
by the V.I. Legislature.
The rezoning hearing has not
yet been added to the senate's
agenda, and requests to the legis-
lature for information on when the
hearing might be scheduled went
unanswered.
On May 17, 2007, the U.S.


Postal Service signed a 10-year
lease with two additional five-year
options with the Boynes family,
who own the one-third-acre Es-
tate Enighed parcel. The property,
however, is zoned R-4 and does
not meet VI. Code requirements
for the construction of a post of-
fice.
Zoning changes must be voted
on and approved by the V.I. Leg-
islature. The Boynes family pe-
titioned the Legislature for the
rezoning hearing approximately
two months ago, according to fam-

Roundabout Construction Continues Ahead

of Schedule; Traffic Pattern To Change Mid-July


By Andrea Milam
St. John Tradewinds
Eight months into the project,
work remains ahead of schedule at
the Cruz Bay roundabout, with an
anticipated completion date of late
2010. Construction is now focused
on Centerline Road in front of
Dolphin Market and on Route 102
in front of the Julius E. Sprauve
School bleachers.
Workers have been putting in
weekend hours in an effort to fin-
ish as much of the work in front
of Dolphin as possible before St.
John Festival on July 4.
"We've got Festival coming up
and we're trying to get out from in
front of Dolphin as quickly as we
can," said Department of Public
Works Materials Program Manager
Thomas Jones. "We've been trying
to get that parking lot back in some
kind of condition so we can give
parking back to Dolphin."
Crews in that area are working
on underpinning, or stabilizing the
roadway's external walls. Work
will likely continue there through
early August, Jones explained.
"We're still ahead of schedule
because fortunately, a lot of what
we needed to do in front of Dol-
phin is the same geology that's
in front of Boulon Center (where
crews were previously working),"
he said. "We don't have to get into
as much of the underpinning as we
thought we would. That pushes us
ahead."
Workers were on hand Memo-
rial Day weekend putting in extra
hours to ensure the project con-
tinued to move along. Crews will
continue to work Saturdays, and
some Sundays as well, according
to Jones.
This month's heavy rains did
slightly affect the project; how-
ever, they did not cause any subse-
quent delays, according to DPW's
Jones.
"We did have a lot of material
wash down toward the tennis court,
so we cooperated with DPW and
the contractor, Island Roads, to go
down and clean it up," said Jones.
"We also had an issue on Center-
line Road up past Dolphin, where
right by the old gas station we had
a six-foot-wide by one-foot-deep
area of roadway wash away. We
jumped on that really quickly, and
stayed there until 9 p.m. that night
repairing it."
The contractor has been very re-
sponsive to keeping traffic flowing

Roundabout work is currently centered on the

through the roundabout, Jones add-
ed. Island Roads has also worked
hard to avoid negatively impacting
the education of students at JESS,
whose campus straddles the con-
struction project.
"The guys do heavy pounding
in the early morning before the
kids get to school, and again at
lunch and later in the afternoon,"
said Jones.
Motorists should expect the
current traffic pattern to change
in July, when crews will begin
work on Centerline Road between
the JESS bleachers and Woody's.
Workers will bury a significant
amount of utilities in that area,
Jones explained.
\\ licn\ c i \ c do a major proj-
ect like this, we bury all utilities
underground," he said. "Only a
few of the utilities in that area of


Centerline Road are being used
now. We're incorporating expan-
sion into this project too."
Crews will bury conduit for fi-
ber optics and additional phone,
power and cable lines for the fu-
ture, Jones added.
The road in that area will re-
main two-way; however traffic is
likely to be shifted.
"It will still be two way, it just
won't look the same," said Jones.
"We'll critique it and constantly
change up the pattern until it's per-
fect."
Workers will also begin con-
structing sidewalks in the area of
the JESS annex and the Boulon
center in June. This work is not
expected to affect traffic.
Jones estimated the project is
currently seven to eight months
ahead of schedule.

St. John Tradewinds
St. Ursula's Episcopal (Angli-
can) Church in Cruz Bay is begin-
ning a summer day camp this year
for 35 St. John children from age 7
to 14 years. The camp will operate
Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m.
to 5 p.m. from June 22 through
July 31.
Children will have both break-
fast and lunch provided through
the Department of Education's
summer meals program. The
cost of the program is $80 for six
weeks with ample scholarships
to any family needing assistance.
Applications forms are available
at the church and the Multipurpose
Center downstairs.
This camp will offer courses
in Christian formation, scouting,
swimming, snorkeling, hiking,
steel pans, singing, drama, sports
and arts & crafts. The camp will
also conduct sports and field day
competitions with the other sum-
mer camps on St. John.
The camp will use St. Ursula's
Church and Multipurpose Cen-
ter as its base of operations and
will also be using two classrooms
and the sports field at the Julius
E Sprauve School. Many of the
camp's activities will be in the VI.
National Park, utilizing the beach-
es and extensive trails.
The Christian formation compo-
nent, called "Becoming Yourself,"
will offer campers a forum to seri-
ously address the issues faced by
every young person today:
Week 1 - Dealing with my par-
ent. Focusing particularly on voic-
ing the various ways the parent/
child relationship can be difficult,
and offering means of resolving
them
Week 2 - Finding God on Tues-

day. Real life spiritual practices to
use at school and in public, all in
the safety of your own head where
no one can judge you
Week 3 - How to lead, not fol-
low. Guidance for overcoming
peer pressures and how to stand up
and guide others to positive con-
clusions
Week 4 - Express yourself.
Healthy expression is the key to
overcoming violence and abuse.
Learn to express yourself through
art, prayer, and writing.
Week 5 - The Family of God.
What happens when you don't
have a strong group of friends
to support you? How do you get
people to move in one direction
together? You build the family of
God by building a team.
Week 6 - Vocation and Minis-
try. Finding the hidden gifts that
lie within each child. Discovering
what you want to become and how
to get there. Children will learn
from adults who realized their


childhood dreams.
A parent and camper orientation
will be held on Sunday, June 21 at
7 p.m. at the church. During the
course of the summer there will
also be parent gatherings where
children will entertain and show
off what they learned in camp.
Father Bill Potter, the new vicar
of St. Ursula's, has had many years
of experience with programs for
children, including seven years as
executive director of the Haven of
Hope for Kids, a program in which
inner city kids enjoyed vacations
in rural New Jersey.
Roger Speer, the youth direc-
tor for the Episcopal Diocese of
the Virgin Islands, has wide ex-
perience in running camps and
programs for youth. A number of
other staff will include adults and
teenaged counselors with substan-
tial staffing to ensure one on one
and small group interaction.

Potter at 777-6306 or 227-8963.

Ranfly Bikinis: Comfortable, Durable and Sexy


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
When Rani Keohane jokes
about her goal of global bikini
domination, she's only partially
kidding.
Since Keohane, a native of the
small Washington State island
Treasure Island, launched her
hand-sewn Ranifly Bikini line
about six months ago, she's gotten
rave reviews and a growing fan
base.
If the feedback from her recent
fashion show at Paradiso, at which
Keohane unveiled her self-built
website www.raniflybikini.com, is
any indication, the designer's suc-
cess is sure to continue - watch
out world.
Although Keohane has been
sewing since she can remember,
she was never formally educated
in the art.
"I started sewing as soon as I
could," said the designer. "I re-
member making bikinis for my
dolls when I was five. My grand-
mother and my mother are both
seamstresses, but no one ever sat
me down and said 'this is how you
do it.'"
'"I just started making stuff,"
she said.
After leaving the soggy Pacific
Northwest, Keohane spent time in
Hawaii before making the move to

the Virgin Islands about 13 years
ago. Since calling the tropics home,
she has worked on boats and spent
most of her time in a bikini.
"I've been working on boats
since I've been here," said Keo-
hane. "I had to wear a bikini every
day and sometimes they don't fit
right. Either the straps cut into your
neck or bottoms don't fit right."
"I had to find a suit that would
be comfortable for all day use and
I couldn't," she said. "So I started
making them myself and people
loved them. They were always
asking me 'where did you get your


suit.'"
Seven years after making her
first bikini - and fresh from a
two-year stint running surfing
charters in Indonesia with her boy-
friend and "bikini Sherpa" Chris
Clark - Keohane now has a full
line of about 15 different styles of
tops and bottoms.
"We circumnavigated Suma-
tra twice and ran surf charters,"
said Keohane. "We had been liv-
ing Chris' dream and I said, 'now
we're going to live mine.' I spent

With Win Over Prestige, Westin Takes First Men's Flag Football League Championship


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Love City's first men's flag football sea-
son wrapped up on Wednesday, May 20,
with Westin beating Prestige in a closely
contested match which ended with the re-
sort team on top 32 to 28.
The win capped a season of steady im-
provement for Westin. The team narrowly
escaped elimination after ending the regular
season with a record of three wins and four
losses and entered the playoffs as the fifth
seed.
In its run to the championship, Westin
first picked off Island Raiders in a tight
match up before upsetting the undefeated
Bulldogs in a 16 to 6 romp in the second
round of the playoffs.
"Our first game of the playoffs was a
close one with Island Raiders," said Matt
Ellis, Westin team captain and middle line-
backer. "In the second game we beat the
Bulldogs and finally humbled them a little
bit."
Prestige, which enjoyed a first-round
bye, barely made it through its first playoff
game, beating Prime Time 22 to 20.
The team matched up better with Westin
and the championship game was as exciting
as the any all season with only four points
separating the teams and Prestige with a
chance to win right until the end.
The key to success for Westin was strat-
egy, explained Ellis.
"We got better as the season went on,"
he said. "We had a lot of close games so we
thought we could win against all the teams.
We weren't the most athletic team that's for
sure, but we had good strategies."
"We watched the other teams and tried to
figure out their strengths and weaknesses,"
said Ellis.
Each flag football game drew a huge
crowd which packed the Winston Wells ball

ship win after defeating Prestige 32 to 28 on Wednesday, May 20.


field bleachers and nearby Cruz Bay streets
and the championship was no exception.
After years of attempting to organize the
league, St. John men's flag football success
was due in large part to strong community
support, explained Brummel Germaine,
who captained the Bulldogs and helped or-
ganize the league with Department of Hous-
ing, Parks and Recreation officials.
"The community really came through for
this," said Germaine. "Everyone complains
of St. John being boring at times, but the
place doesn't make the people - the people
make the place. If you put something out


there for people to come out, they will."
Game nights were a big deal in Cruz Bay
with booming music, refreshments and high
energy - which the players enjoyed as
much as the spectators.
"The community was great," said Ellis.
"The games brought out so many people
and everyone was talking about the games
before and afterward. It was just a really
positive thing."
"I think we had some of the best fans,"
Ellis said. "We lost a few games, but our
fans were undefeated."
With so much interest on and off the field,


the league will definitely return next year
and, Germaine hoped, be even better. This
year's season kicked off in mid-February,
but St. Thomas Carnival activities and sev-
eral rainy days delayed the playoffs. Next
year Germaine hoped to get things going a
bit earlier, he explained.
The eight teams who took part in the first
season are all expected to return and the
roster should expand further with additional
St. John teams and even several St. Thomas
teams interested in joining, Germaine add-
ed.
A lot of people helped make sure the first
St. John men's flag football season got off
the ground and was so successful, accord-
ing to Germaine.
The FirstPhase Data Com owners thanked
Banana Deck, La Tapa, Attorney Brion Mor-
risette, St. John Hardware, Starfish Market,
Starfish Gourmet, Emmanuel Boyd, Cor-
rera Excavating, Icon Sounds and DJ Percy,
Culver Consulting, Rehugh and family, An-
drew Rutnik, Lawrence "Milk" Charles and
everyone at HPR, he explained.
Team Westin is already looking forward
to next year's season and players know
they'll be the number one targets, explained
Ellis.
"We'll definitely be back to defend our
title next year," said Ellis. "We'll have to
watch out. I know everyone will be gunning
for us."
Before that, however, several players will
be heading over to St. Thomas next month
to face off against Rock City teams.
"Right now we're preparing for the St.
Thomas league which is coming up," said
Germaine. "We'll have a nice St. John team
which will combine a few people from ev-
ery team who wants to go over and play."
Anyone interested in joining the next St.
John men's flag football league should call
Charles at HPR at 776-6531.

Being Active During Summertime


St. John Tradewinds
Summer vacation is right around the corner. To
some it feels like it took forever to come and to others
they may say it came in the blink of an eye. Whatever
it may be, it is almost here.
Though many of us consider this time of the year
to be a time of relaxation, sleeping in late, and all play
and no work, the summer vacation should consist of
a lot more. It is good to relax and play, but it is even
more important to be active, especially for students.
Being active means doing something productive dur-
ing this time.
There is a wide range of options student can partake
in during the summer time. Going to camp, picking
up a summer job, fulfilling community service, and
traveling and experiencing somewhere new are only a
few things youths can do this summer.
These activities are not only educational, but fun,
eye-opening and extremely rewarding as well. The
worst thing is to have kids stay at home all summer
long doing practically nothing.
By allowing this, it allows kids to get lazy. This also
makes it easier for kids to forget what they learned
that school year and cages them off from opportunities
which can broaden their horizons.
Being active this summer especially includes read-
ing. One thing I always neglected to do as a child was
read over the summer vacation. As I have grown up, I
have come to regret this.
Reading is very important. It increases vocabulary,
stimulates imagination, and it is much more educa-
tional than watching TV all summer long.
A good idea for parents, is to assign their children
books over the summer break and have them do book
reports. For every book report received the child can
get something special - a monetary gift or something
of the sort. This method can work with all ages and
students will be surprised at how beneficial reading a
couple of books over the summer can be.


Just as it is important for the young ones to be active,
the same goes for the adults. Most are still at work, but
being active can be as simple as setting health goals
and working towards them this summer.
During this summer, remember to be active - set
a goal, be productive. Relaxation and play are good
things, but staying home all summer long is just bor-
ing.
My Summer Plans
Before heading off to college at the end of this sum-
mer, I will be partaking in a once-in-a-lifetime trip to
Rwanda, Africa. As a part of the Rwanda Project of
the Virgin Islands, 12 students, including myself, will
spend approximately two weeks in Rwanda, Africa,
carrying out a number of community service projects
as well as sight-seeing and experiencing the unique
culture of this amazing country.
The project, which was launched in spring 2008,
came as a result of Ivanna Eudora Kean High School
students' keen interest in the country. With the help
of their English teacher and in conjunction with V.I.
First Lady Cecile deJongh, a group of 11 Virgin Island
teenagers traveled to Rwanda and took part in a life
changing experience last year.
A couple of months ago I found out about the proj-
ect and thought how great it would be to go to Africa.
I quickly applied and got accepted. With preparing for
school, working, and enjoying the festival activities,
this is how I plan to spend my summer this year.
Slow Down St. John
With the rapid rise in car accidents on St. John and
summer about to begin, people should proceed with
even more caution this year. Kids will be out of school,
the round-about is under construction, and with traf-
fic ever increasing on our island, drivers are asked to
drive safely.
Safe driving is one easy way to ensure that this sum-
mer will be a good one. Just remember St. John - be
safe, be active and have fun this summer vacation.

CBCC Thanks Volunteers for Clean Up Efforts


Dear Editor,
Huge Thank Yous to everyone who participated in
the Coral Bay Shoreline and Mangrove Cleanup last
Saturday. In just two hours, teams of people removed
all kinds of debris from shore areas. Over 2000 plas-
tic water, soda, and food containers were removed -
saving wildlife. Now these containers will not dete-
riorate into small pieces that are washed into the bay
and look like food that can be eaten by sea turtles and
other wildlife, but ultimately kills them. Also many
open water-filled plastic containers were removed
from the mangrove areas. This eliminated 100's of
dengue mosquito breeding places. Thus, another im-
portant benefit of the cleanup may be reducing the
potential for dengue fever this year.
The Coral Bay Yacht Club cleared the shoreline
going toward Fortsberg of old wrecked small boat
debris.
KATS (Kids and the Sea) cleaned the shoreline
near their two sailing areas.
The John's Folly Learning Institute had five chil-
dren clean the beach at Hard Labor.
Twenty residents (including CBCC & CBYC


members) fanned out and cleaned the Roadside near
the Triangle and around the center of Coral Bay and
then teamed up to tackle the debris from old squatters
camps in the mangroves - and return the area to a
pristine state. It was beautiful when completed! -
See accompanying pictures.
The Coral Bay Community Council provided orga-
nization, publicity and communications and willing
members do the work.
Skinny Legs and Shipwrecks provided drinks.
The National Park and Friends of the Park provid-
ed gloves and bags.
The Waste Management Authority and Public
Works took away all the debris.
CBCC also wants to acknowledge the many indi-
viduals who routinely collect litter when they see it
along our roadsides and beaches. We suggest people
continue this practice. Just keep a grocery bag handy
in your car for this purpose - or Large Bags can be
picked up at the CBCC office. It takes all of us to
vigilantly clean up and take care of our environment.
Sharon Coldren, President
Coral Bay Community Council


Beach-to-Beach Thank Yous


Dear Editor,
The gods were good - Sun, Wind and Rain - and
blessed us with the perfect day for the Friends 6th
Annual Beach to Beach Power Swim on Sunday May
24th. For weeks the applications for the swim came
streaming in from all over and as far away as Eng-
land and Alaska. Most of the local islands were rep-
resented including St. Thomas, St. Croix, the BVI's
and Puerto Rico, as well. On Saturday evening the
pre-event meeting took place at Maho Bay Camps,
where new and returning swimmers heard the details
of the event and claimed their goody bags and t-shirts.
With excitement high we checked in about 150 of the
238 competitors signed up to swim the next day - a
45 percent increase over last year's swimmers! To all
swimmers-thank you for participating!
On event day an actual 218 people competed, men
women and children, as they began their course of
choice with our oldest swimmer of 75 and the young-
est of 7. Many swam the short course of one mile
while others chose the intermediate course of a little


more than 2 miles and the die-hards took the chal-
lenge of the 3 plus miles. Several teams swam the
relay with returning winners who received the Scotia
Bank Challenge Relay. The day was capped off with a
beach party and award ceremony filled with fun, food
and music.
But none of this could have been accomplished
without the financial support of our major sponsors.
In addition to those sponsors were the companies that
donated products and services. And an event of this
scope could not be successful without the volunteers,
more than 80, who helped with everything from reg-
istration and schlepping tables and chairs to cooking
and manning the kayaks. You know who you are. You
have a special place in our hearts because we couldn't
have done it without you. From the Friends - to each
and every one of you-a big and hearty THANK
YOU!
Noreen Cavanaugh,
Development Director
Friends of the VINP

Dear Editor,
I find it very disturbing that the Constitutional del-
egates were elated in celebration over the passing of
the draft of the Virgin Islands Constitution. They ap-
proved a document that cost hundreds of thousands
of dollars that has no chance of being approved by
the US Congress. A Constitution is to represent ev-
eryone. ALL THE PEOPLE. A Constitution is to be
inclusive not exclusive. The language trying to give
some people special rights by acknowledging them
as native Virgin Islanders is a violation of federal law.
The Constitutional delegates' own lawyers told them
this. They chose to disregard the advice of their own
lawyers. The obstinance and arrogance of the dele-
gates who voted to approve the draft baffles me. They
did it knowing full well the document will not get ap-
proved. To me that is not a success and nothing to
celebrate. I feel embarrassed for Govenor DeJongh in


Dear Editor,
What can we do to stop this scourge that is plagu-
ing our families and our communities?
What words can our mothers and fathers and un-
cles and grandfathers, husbands, brothers and sisters
use to talk to the men in their lives, in our lives, to
say that physical, mental and emotional abuse is bad?
That there are other ways of settling disagreements?
How can these men and women be encouraged,
pushed, cajoled into seeking help before the problem
gets to the point of no return? How do we stop the pain
that manifests itself into this crazy, angry violence
that takes no prisoners? How do we break the cycle?
How do we keep our children and women safe?
So many questions, so few answers. But we must
find answers. We must find a way to end this violence
- all violence that is plaguing our community. Now
is the time. Too many broken homes, broken lives,
broken hearts. We must put a stop to it. Now!
We must let our women know that they are not
alone. That they can and should seek help. We must
lift the veil of darkness of this terrible scourge and


Dear Editor,
I would like to send my thanks to all who supported
the Javon J. Alfred Fun Day on Saturday, May 23.
First of all, the day would not have even been pos-
sible without Lynese Shomo. I would like to send a
special thanks to the Ice Man, who always comes
through even though times are bad.
I would like to send a special thanks to Kim Lyons


having to present this document to President Obama.
In regard to ancestral native Virgin Islanders not
having to pay property tax, has anyone figured out
how many people that would be and how much mon-
ey the VI government would be deprived of? Again,
the mind set of the delegates amazes me. It is really
basic, everyone needs to pay their property taxes.
Lastly, what is the anticipated political future for
the Virgin Islands? I hope it is not independence. The
federal dollars that come into the territory are vital
to our continued existence. The VI government can
not even manage to collect property taxes or even ac-
cess all the federal money available to the territory.
Independence from the US would be certain financial
disaster for the Virgin Islands.
Do not even get me started that one of our fine dele-
gates is in jail awaiting trial on federal drug charges.

begin to light the darkness, so that women of all ages
know that domestic violence is a serious problem that
they cannot fight it alone.
It is important to remind our women that in trying
to fight domestic problems alone, that in keeping this
terrible secret, they put themselves and their children
at even greater risk. In thinking they can fight this war
on their own, they may end up dead.
We must light the way for our women and girls to
find their way out of these problematic relationships.
This is a family problem, a community problem and a
law enforcement problem, that we must all fight.
Organizations such as the Women's Resource Cen-
ter and The women's Coalition are fighting an uphill
battle each day, and need the help of the community
to do the work that needs to be done to protect our
women and children. Please volunteer and lend a
hand when you can. Lives depend on it.
Love should not hurt. Love does not cause pain.
And love does not cause death.
Joan Harrigan Farrelly
Director, Antimicrobials Division


and Alice Krall at Coral Bay Jewelers who helped me
organize the event.
I would also like to send a special thanks to Jerry
Lakes without whom this day would not have been a
success, as he and his guys set everything up, orga-
nized everything, broke down everything and cleaned
up. Thank you to all!
Deverell Alfred

Beach-to-Beach Power Swim

Attracts Record Numbers,

Raises $15K for VINP Friends

Continued from Page 6
according to the director of development, who said Friends had
boats, rescue crews and 25 kayaks stationed along the course to
support the swimmers.
"We always want to make sure that everyone is safe - we've
never had issues with safety," she said.
Cavanaugh said one of the highlights of the event is the diver-
sity it attracts, which was highlighted at the after-swim party at
Oppenheimer Beach.
"We had people come from as far away as Alaska and England,
our oldest swimmer was 75 and our youngest swimmer was 7,"
she said. "Each year, the oldest person gets the Neptune award,
the youngest gets the Nemo award and the person who travelled
the farthest gets the Magellan award - it is a lot of fun!"
Overall male and female winners for the long solo swim were
Augusto Cividini, a 15-year-old from Key Biscayne, Florida, with
a time of 1:21:50 and 22-year-old Margaret Ravenna from Ridge-
field, Connecticut, with a time of 1:23:22, respectively.
Cividini, who was born and raised on St. John, said he trained
hard stateside for the power swim - working out in the pool nine
times a week for two to three hours per day.
"So an hour and a half swim wasn't too hard to take on," Civi-
dini said. "I just went with the mindset to have fun and do my best
and maybe end with a win."
But winning was not the former St. John resident's only reward
- he said it was wonderful to be able to swim in the water he
grew up in and see all of his old friends again.
"I consider St. John my true home and am proud to be born and
raised there," Cividini said. "To win was just amazing, the race
was long and I might have gotten a little lost. But just finally get-
ting to Hawksnest and having everyone there waiting and cheering
for me as I finished was really cool and was a great experience."

bikinis and I wanted to keep going
with it."
Since honing her skills, Keo-
hane has created an exquisite line
of custom-quality bathing suits.
Keohane's Ranifly Bikini line is
sold in separates and is designed
to mix and match, with many re-
versible and convertible pieces, so
everyone can find just the bikini
for their body type.
"Not everyone is the same size
on top and bottom," said Keohane.
"But everyone looks good in my
suits. You just have to play around
and find the fit that suits your
body."
"There are so many options that
everyone can find the right fit," she
said.
To the sexy and unique styles,
Keohane adds her flair for colors
and fabrics - from basic black to
bright sherbert hues - which re-
ally sets Ranifly Bikinis apart.
"I went to Brazil when I was 16
and I've been a bikini fanatic since
then," said Keohane. "I have my
eye out for fabrics constantly and
I'll be designing my own fabrics
soon."
Keohane uses only the highest
quality fabrics and hand sews the
entire collection herself, ensuring
durability. Designed by someone
who spent endless days in a bikini,
comfort is also a big factor in Keo-
hane's line.
"The fabrics I use are extremely
high quality and they're super du-
rable," she said. "The most feed-
back I get is that people abuse their
suits down here and they can't be-
lieve how long mine last. The other

feedback I get is how comfortable
the suits are - people put them on
and they don't want to take them
off."
If all that wasn't enough, Rani-
fly Bikinis also come in cute, reus-
able, waterproof bags.
While Keohane has the sewing
talent and designer's eye - not
to mention the passion to work
endlessly on her dream- a lot of
people helped get Ranifly Bikini
off the ground, she explained.
"Greer Rivera was the pho-
tographer for most of my photo
shoots and she's amazing," said
the designer. "She really believed
in me and made me believe that
I could do this - I could launch
a website on my own and do the
whole line of bikinis and my first
fashion show."
"I worked really hard on this


and I had Greer believing in me
and so many people giving me
so much positive feedback," said
Keohane. "When I finished and
succeeded with the website and
saw the end of the road - which
is really just the beginning - I felt
like it wasn't just me. What I ac-
complished is really the sum of all
these people who believed in me."
It also helps that Keohane's
friends who model her bikinis love
getting paid in her handiwork, she
added.
Even with her name and bikinis
continuing to gain fame, Keohane
still loves seeing people in her cre-
ations.
"To me seeing someone wear
one of my bikinis is the most re-
warding thing," she said. "I look
at people in my suits and I'm like,
'wow you look excellent.' Espe-
cially after I've seen them in an-
other suit that didn't look at all as
good as mine."
This summer Keohane is head-
ing north to live on a boat with her
boyfriend in Southampton, NY.
She'll continue designing bikinis
- fans should check the website
every two weeks for new pieces -
and is adding a line of eclectic can-
vas beach bags to her repertoire.
Looking ahead, the world is lit-
erally Keohane's oyster.
"I'm looking at global bikini
domination," she said. "But I'm
taking baby steps now."
Ranifly Bikinis are available
on St. John at Nest, on the second
floor of The Marketplace, and Big
Planet in Mongoose Junction. On

Rezoning of Future P.O. Site Not Yet on Senate Agenda


Continued from Page 8
ily spokesperson Cheryl Boynes-
Jackson.
Initial Plans Move Forward
The family is still planning to
move forward with its plans for a
three-story building consisting of
a 6,000 square foot first floor des-
ignated for the post office, 12 to
15 second-story parking spaces for
post office customers and office
space for the Boynes family on the
third floor. Plans for the building
were first revealed to the public at
a January 2007 town meeting.
The Department of Planning
and Natural Resources originally
said it would allow construction
of the post office to move forward
at the R-4-zoned Estate Enighed
parcel. DPNR's Division of Com-


prehensive and Coastal Zone Plan-
ning considered the post office a
"civic association" which falls un-
der a "matter of right."
Officials later reconsidered
their position after realizing that,
according to the V.I. Code, a post
office can only be constructed in
an R-4 zone on lots greater than
15,000 feet.
"(DPNR Division of CCZP Di-
rector) Dr. Wanda Mills-Bocach-
ica assumed that a zoning com-
pliance review had already been
conducted for the federal United
States Post Office, which led to
her choice of the most applicable
designation under the R-4 zoning
category of 'civic association,'"
according to a statement issued by
DPNR following the reversal of


its decision. "The listing of postal
substations under 'uses permitted
subject to the conditions' was er-
roneously overlooked."
Earlier this year, the Boynes
family completed the application
process for a zoning change with
DPNR, which instructed the fami-
ly to petition the Senate for a hear-
ing. Two months later, the family
is still waiting.
"I think they had a lot of stuff
going on," said family spokesper-
son Boynes-Jackson. "As soon as
they schedule it, they will let me
know."
The volume of mail coming in
to Love City has outgrown the cur-
rent Cruz Bay post office. The new
facility as planned is designed to
allow for 10 years of growth.

Dear Editor,
Greetings! As many of you know, Inner Visions
has left the island for yet another stateside tour. This
tour started out with the band first hitting the record-
ing studio in Tampa Florida. The recording process
was a complete success!
So for all those fans who have been repeatedly ask-
ing for "the new one," hopefully by Summer's end
you'll have it in your hands. I can tell you this much!
If you liked the sounds on "Frontline" you can seri-
ously expect more of the same. Many of you (I know
already) will have to eat the words "you will never
come better than "Frontline!" Ha! Look for the album
"Stay Alive" real soon and you tell me!
Well, we began touring the U.S. in South Carolina.
We played the Pourhouse in Charleston and believe
me, that night it poured! It rained like crazy! Well,
what can I say, we were at the Pour-house!
This house we expected to get filled was mainly
filled with other reggae acts from the surrounding
area who had heard so much about the band they all
wanted to see and hear for themselves.
The word on the streets there now is Inner Visions
is the band to see this year for sure! According to my
agent, even the bartenders were constantly distracted
and amazed by the sounds. Now the club is asking for
a return date already.
Next stop was Greensboro, North Carolina, where
it again mined like crazy! There was a storm in the
area and the weather guy was warning folks to stay
off the streets. Naturally because we are most times
very early to our gigs, we were already stuck at the
club. Again turnout was low but spirits high. Inner
Visions performed like the troopers that we are and
still managed to sell quite a few CDs too!
Following the performance we immediately hit the
road to Charlotte, NC. It was a long drive, especially
after the heavy sounds we put down in Greensboro. I
drove most of the way with Jupiter bringing us to our
resting place. We got in around 5:30 a.m. (Who was

the guy who said musicians have it easy?)
It was a modern-built plantation estate styled house.
This thing is huge! Imagine all five of us rested in one
bedroom and no bunk beds either! Amazing!!
Last night here in Charlotte we did the "Drum
Strong" festival. It is a benefit festival that raises
funding and awareness to help fight cancer. Inner Vi-
sions ripped up the stage! It was filmed internation-
ally and your hometown band did it up nicely! We do
hope to get a copy and eventually post some of the
highlights on Youtube.
Today we head East to Wilmington, NC. We will
be playing a club called Sixteen Taps and expect a
great showing there.
Take care of yourselves and our home while we are
away! I will keep you informed every no\\ and then"
