JESS Graduates Reminded To Make Good Choices


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
When 13 Julius E. Sprauve School ninth graders
graduated at a ceremony at the Westin Resort and Vil-
las on Tuesday evening, June 9, the festive mood was
tempered by the reality of how fleeting life can be.
The St. John students were reminded of the impor-
tance of their choices by Department of Education
Insular Superintendent Jeanette Smith-Barry as she
remembered Karence DaCosta, the Charlotte Amalie
High School student who died in a car accident just
hours after graduating on June 7.
"Make your next choice your best choice," Smith-
Barry told the JESS graduating class. "It starts to-
night. Every choice you make has consequences."
"Make each moment you have count," said Smith-
Barry.
While the students are sure to enter larger classes
and schools, that doesn't mean they will get lost, ac-
cording to the DOE Superintendent.
"We're really proud that you made it this far and
we want to encourage you to continue," said Smith-
Barry. "As you leave St. John, you leave a little school
and a little family and many of you will go off to big-
ger schools."
"But that doesn't mean that you no longer have a
family," Smith-Barry said. "It means you have a much
bigger family. And all families stick together."
The DOE District Superintendent urged the gradu-
ates to reunite in three years.
"I would like each of you to make a pledge to make
it through the 12th grade," said Smith-Barry. "I hope
you have a JESS reunion then."
JESS principal Mario Francis took time to remark
on each of the graduates personally.
"With a class the size we have, it's easy for us at
JESS to be very intimate," said Francis. "With our


students we call ourselves the JESS family and that is
really what we are."
JESS staff members took over the spotlight as
teachers and faculty sang moving renditions of "I Be-
lieve I Can I Fly," and "Oh Happy Day," to the delight
of the crowd in the Westin ballroom.
Class Valedictorian Savannah Lyons-Anthony
and Salutatorian Javon Venzen delivered impressive
speeches to their peers, teachers, family members and
friends.
Venzen focused on the word "choice" and recited
Robert Frost's "The Road Not Taken."
"Hard work guarantees you nothing, but without
it you don't stand a chance," said Venzen. "Make
choices that count and make choices that make a dif-
ference."
Lyons-Anthony thanked family members and
teachers who helped her achieve her goals.
"Three years ago I walked through the gates of the
Julius E. Sprauve School not knowing what to ex-
pect," said Lyons-Anthony. No%\ I am socially and
mentally ready for what comes next, whatever that
may be. It was the special attention we got at JESS
that was the key to a healthy learning environment."
"We can make anything happen," said the JESS
valedictorian.
Other distinguished guests who offered encourag-
ing words to the ninth graders included Senate Presi-
dent Louis Hill, Senator at Large Craig Barshinger
and Board of Education member Oswin Sewer. JESS
alumni Antonio Powell delivered the keynote ad-
dress.
The 2009 JESS ninth grad promotes were Frailen
Castillo, Shevani Chickester, Natalie Dalmida, Nicole
Dalmida, Travis Dalimda, lesha Dawson, Clarissa
Doyling, J'Kail Jacobs, Ohene Lambertis, Lyons-An-
thony, Franklyn Perez, Alexa Richards and Venzen.

Stevens, Samuel Graduate at Top of Gifft Hill School Class


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Eleven Gifft Hill School stu-
dents made history as the largest
senior class to graduate on St. John
on Thursday evening, June 11.
With threatening skies over-
head, the GHS graduation was
moved to the indoor restaurant at
Caneel Bay Resort, but the shift of
location didn't dampen the mood.
The large crowd spilled almost
onto the beach to celebrate with
the school's, and the island's, fifth
graduating senior class.
V.I. First Lady Cecile deJongh
delivered the commencement ad-
dress and offered a few pieces of
advise to the graduates.
"Always be passionate about
the process and success will fol-
low," said deJongh. "The joy is in
the journey. The secret is to enjoy
the journey while it's happening."
The first lady also urged the stu-
dents to be lifelong learners.
"Always be learning," deJongh
told the GHS seniors. "Learning is
the antidote to ignorance and ha-
tred."
In a speech before his proud
family and friends, Valedictorian
Malik Stevens, who is heading to
Georgetown University in the fall,
recalled the day he first went "up
the hill" to GHS three years ago.


"At first I was a bit skeptical,"
said Stevens. "I was scared that I
would not mesh well and the work
would be too much. But I came."
"I decided I would take the road
less traveled," Stevens said. "That
was three years ago and I do not re-
gret it one bit. I have tried to make
the most of my time at GHS."
Salutatorian Jessica Samuel re-
cited and found inspiration in Dr.
Suess.
"Be who you are and say what
you feel because those who mind
don't matter and those who matter
don't mind," Samuel said.
After winning a prestigious
Quest Bridge grant, a four-year
scholarship worth more than
$250,000, Samuel is heading off to
Wesleyan University in the fall.
Evanna Chinnery, who will be
attending Berklee College of Mu-
sic, brought the house down- and
the crowd to their feet - with her
rendition of "I Hope You Dance."
Before handing out diplomas
to the 11 graduates, GHS Head
Master Ben Biddle shared intimate
stories of each student. Graduating
from GHS were Stevens, Samuel,
Chinnery, Chade Edwards, Kerla
Fessale, Mathew Gibney, Zenobia
Howe, Tafari Olliviere, Denique
Thomas, Shawana Thomas and
Matty Trayser.

Propane Gas Leak Prompts


Marketplace Evacuation


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
It only took seven minutes for
the entire Marketplace to evacu-
ate after a propane gas leak was
detected by maintenance staff on
Tuesday morning, June 9, around
11:30 a.m.
Once the emergency alarm sys-
tem was activated, employees and
customers at every business in
the Marketplace evacuated within
seven minutes and the St. John
Fire Department responded within
10 minutes, according to Market-
place officials.
Propane tanks on the third
floor behind the office suites were
filled by Antilles Gas the morn-
ing of June 9, and apparently were

topped off too high. As the day
heated up, the propane expanded,
and eventually generated so much
pressure the cover to the tank shot
off into the air near where a welder
was working on the roof.
Had a spark been ignited any-
where in the area, the incident
could have easily turned devastat-
ing. Instead, maintenance officials
set off the emergency alarm and
notified authorities.
An Antilles representative in-
spected the tank shortly after the
incident and The Marketplace
was reopened for business within
and hour. An official from Antil-
les was expected to conduct a full
inspection of the tank and certify
its safety.

Benjamin and Mullen Celebrate
75th Anniversary of Graduation
St. John Tradewinds
Guy Benjamin of St. John and Ulla Mullen of St. Thomas at-

Guy H. Benjamin Elementary School Promotes 10 Students


By Tom Oat
St. John Tradewinds
The cool breeze off Coral Bay flowed
into the Emmaus Moravian Church to carry
several hundred friends, family and class-
mates through an hours-long celebration of
the promotion of 10 sixth graders from the
Guy H. Benjamin Elementary School, one
of the territory's oldest operating schools.
While students Xavia Bruce-Thomas and
Kiana Athanase were the leading scholars,
their classmates also received numerous ac-
colades, acclaim and awards in the touching
annual ceremony for the island's "country"
elementary school - which includes at
least one building dating from its genesis as
a 19th Century Moravian school.
First Honor Student Bruce-Thomas and
Second Honor Student Athanase were pre-
sented with numerous academic honors
and awards as were every member of the
graduating class: DeVante Monsanto, Ken-
nisha Estrado, Ohemmaa Lambertis, Malik
Richards, Jaqualyn Clarke, Adaiah Brown,
Shalise Wade and Ashly Powell.
A program of dignitaries and public of-
ficials addressed the promotes and the
audience of friends and family members,
including the 100-plus students in grades
kindergarten through five at the public
school serving the east end of St. John.
Homespun pomp and circumstance was
interspersed with musical interludes includ-

ing a stirring rendition of the U.S. National
Anthem by music teacher Danielle Green-
away and an enchanting solo performance
of Somewhere Over the Rainbow by GBS
second grade student Gabriel Brocker.
Principal Dionne Wells delivered wel-
coming remarks. VI. Insular Superinten-


dent Jeanette Smith-Barry and V.I. Board of
Education Member Oswin Sewer addressed
the students, as did Senator Wayne James,
Chairperson of the V.I. Senate Committee
on Education, Youth and Culture and repre-
sentatives of the St. John Administrator and
of the Senator at Large.


"Guy Benjamin School is small and
unique," said Wells. "It is a tight-knit fam-
ily. That is a quality we try to instill in every
one of our students."
GBS works to "mold them into well-dis-
ciplined girls and boys," Wells declared.
"Listen to yourself," Sen. James told the
students in an address which reminded them
of the role of the Moravians in teaching
slaves to read the bible. "The spirit that will
guide you through life is in yourself."
Reverend Lillette I. George, a foster
mother, told the students to remind them-
selves they are "fearfully and wonderfully
made."
"Children will give you back what you
give to them," Rev. George told the audi-
ence. "We have to learn how to invest in
them. God gave you the best He had to of-
fer."
The faculty and staff members delivered
their annual musical salute to the graduat-
ing class to close the promotion event which
also marked the retirement of two longtime
educators.
Idalia Scimeca retired after 40 years
teaching around the hemisphere, Ms. Sci-
meca finished her career at GBS primarily
teaching Spanish. Juanita Canton returned
to GBS, where she started teaching in 32
years ago to retire after a career which took
her to schools on all three U.S. Virgin Is-
lands. (See related stories on Page 6.)

CZM Okays Well Drilling and R/O Plant at Pond Bay Club


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Pond Bay Club officials got
the green light to further alter the
scope of their original permit from
the St. John Coastal Zone Man-
agement Committee at a Thursday
morning, June 11, decision meet-
ing at the Cruz Bay Legislature
building.
Under its second modification
request, First Development Group
Carib, which is developing the
luxury fractional ownership resort
Pond Bay Club, won't be extend-
ing VI. Water And Power Author-
ity utilities to its Chocolate Hole
Bay site. Instead, the 52-unit de-
velopment requested permission
to construct a reverse osmosis fa-
cility and drill three wells for in-
take and one well for discharge of
brine to make potable water.
St. John CZM Committee mem-
bers Madeline Sewer and Andrew
Penn, adopting CZM staff recom-
mendations, approved the modi-
fication request, while member
Gerry Hills abstained from voting.
Member Edmund Roberts was ab-
sent.
Hills requested additional infor-
mation regarding the environmen-


tal impact of discharging 100,000
gallons of brine a day into a 150-
foot deep well and eventually into
the aquifer.
"I'm worried about the impact
of brine being discharged in the
amount of 100,000 gallons a day
into the aquifer in an environmen-
tally-sensitive area," said Hill.
"Your asking me to give approval
without any documentation from
any agency that says doing this is
okay."
The go-ahead from CZM now
allows Pond Bay Club officials to
complete applications with both
the territorial and federal Envi-
ronmental Protection Agencies to
actually drill and test the wells,
explained project architect Tracy
Roberts of Springline Architects.
"I've been in communication
with local and federal EPA and
they understand what I'm doing,"
said Roberts. "Drillers have looked
at the site and everyone believes
this will not be a problem."
Extending WAPA's water line
over Jacob's Ladder to Pond Bay
Club's Chocolate Hole location
was determined to be an "eco-
nomic burden" for the developer
after the Westin - which already


"I've been in communication with local and
federal EPA and they understand what I'm doing.
Drillers have looked at the site and everyone
believes this will not be a problem."
-Architect Tracy Roberts, Springline Architects


has a R/O plant on site - declined
to join the project, Roberts ex-
plained.
"Originally, we got an esti-
mated cost from Majestic and the
Westin was interested in buying in
and tapping into the line as well,"
said Roberts. No%% the Westin
has backed out and Majestic came
back and said they made a mistake
and doubled the cost. The WAPA
plan has become an economic bur-
den on the project."
The modification request also
included several changes to the
back of the house and roadways
at Pond Bay Club. One of the two
planned administration buildings
was eliminated, the Pond Bay
Club building - which will in-
clude a restaurant, pool decks and
bar - will be one story instead
of two and the planned roadway
around the property will now in-


clude more permeable materials
instead of concrete.
Since Auberge signed on to
manage Pond Bay Club, the resort
has taken on a more pedestrian
feel in order to comply with the
company's strict standards, ac-
cording to the resort's request for
modification application.
"The permitted states that the
main revisions are caused by the
redesign of the restaurant and
pool," according to the applica-
tion. "This occurred as a result of
Auberge Resorts being selected as
the operator of the hotel and di-
recting changes made in the pool
and restaurant to fit within their
world class, six-star dining and
leisure standards."
The St. John CZM Committee
included several special condi-
tions in its approval of Pond Bay
Club's modification request, in-


eluding notifying the committee of
all work prior to commencing and
obtaining all federal and territorial
permits before starting construc-
tion activities.
This latest modification approv-
al is the last in Pond Bay Club's
years-long process to build a lux-
ury resort on its Chocolate Hole
waterfront property. Their original
major CZM permit was approved
in January 2007.
The developers came back to
the committee in August 2007 to
request a modification to reduce
the number of units and parking
spaces and eliminate the planned
tennis courts. That modification
request was approved in October
2007.
The developers were back in
front of the St. John CZM Com-
mittee in November 2008 to re-
quest beach nourishment activities
be allowed at the site. Pond Bay
Club's request to sift the sand and
hand clear cobble and stones from
the Chocolate Hole Bay beach was
approved in January 2009 with the
condition that beach nourishment
can only occur after a pilot study
of the process and its effects on the
environment is completed.

Scimeca Retires After 40 Years of Teaching


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
After an education career which
spanned almost 40 years and an
entire hemisphere, Idalia Scimeca
is putting away her grading book.
Scimeca is retiring this year
from Guy Benjamin School where
she most recently helmed the sec-
ond grade class. The Puerto Rico-
native's teaching career took her
everywhere from Connecticut to
the Marshall Islands before she
moved to St. John in 2004.
Even on Love City though, Sci-
meca shuttled around filling the
void wherever she was needed.
She spent her first three years as
an itinerant elementary school
Spanish teacher traveling back and
forth between GBS and the Julius
E. Sprauve School in Cruz Bay.
Last year Scimeca settled down
at GBS where she taught Spanish
before shifting to the second grade
this past year.
The educator began her teach-
ing career in 1970 in the Bronx,
NY, before moving to Connecti-


Idalia Scimeca


cut, Pennsylvania, the Marshall
Islands and Hawaii. Scimeca was
back teaching on her home island
of Puerto Rico when she met her
future husband, married and relo-
cated to St. John.
It was all the moving around
she did which Scimeca attributed
to keeping education exciting to
her -' 41' c1 i. after teaching her first
class.
"When you work with children,


they keep you on your toes," said
Scimeca. "They energize you and
keep you going and challenge you.
Kids stretch you in every way you
can imagine."
"Also I guess the fact that I
did move around always kept
things fresh," Scimeca said. "Even
though I've been in education for
so many years, I've been in dif-
ferent aspects of education in very
different places."
Looking back at her nearly four
decades of education, it was reach-
ing each student in her class which
Scimeca said was both the most
rewarding and the most challeng-
ing aspects of her career.
"Regardless of what you're do-
ing, you always have quite a range
of abilities in any one group," said
the teacher. "When you're trying
to meet the needs of every child,
that is both the biggest challenge
and reward."
"When you can say, 'I was able
to get to each one of them and I
provided each one of them with

Retirement Won't Slow Ms. Canton Down


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Guy Benjamin School first
grade teacher Juanita Canton is re-
tiring where she began her career
32 years ago.
"It's perfect that I started teach-
ing kindergarten out here and now
I'm retiring from here teaching
first grade," said Canton.
In the intervening three de-
cades, Canton taught kindergarten
through sixth grade and English
as a Second Language classes
across St. Croix, St. Thomas and
St. John.
Looking back over her career,
Canton has seen a trend which she
said is key to improving the educa-
tion system in the territory.
"My hope for the future of edu-
cation is to focus on getting parents
involved with every aspect of their
students' education," Canton said.
"If parents were on the ball with a
lot of things, it would make educa-
tion easier for everyone. It makes
such a difference when parents get
involved."
Education is important for more
than just teaching children how to
read and write, explained Canton.


GBS Teacher
Juanita Canton

"Education is an important fac-
tor in making the community one
in which we all are proud," she
said. "A lot of the problems we're
seeing in our community are due
to problems in our education sys-
tem."
For Canton, the best part of
teaching was seeing the difference
she made in her students.
"I love to see the children be-
come more expressive individu-
als," said the teacher.
Canton even kept several letters


from students over the years who
shared their appreciation with their
teacher.
"Because I loved your class, I
loved coming to school," wrote
Yvette Juste in a letter to Canton.
"You made learning fun."
The keepsake letters are a re-
minder to Canton of the impor-
tance of her work, she explained.
"When kids become more ex-
pressive and they write a letter like
that, it makes me feel like I really
made a difference," said Canton.
"It doesn't get much better than
that."
Canton has no intention of let-
ting retirement slow her down, she
added.
"My mother is ill and I'll devote
some of my time to taking care of
her," said Canton. "But also I'm
going to garden and I want to
travel. I also think I'll volunteer
because I want to share my time
with the community."
Even after 32 years of teaching,
Canton relished her job right until
her last day.
"I really hate to leave," she said.
"I love teaching, but it's time for
me to move on."

Three St. John Women Gearing Up To "Walk Abreast" in October


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
The three women taking turns
walking on a treadmill in The
Marketplace on Saturday, June
6, weren't just getting some very
public exercise, they are team
"Sisters Walking Abreast."
Karen Radtke, Catherine Fahy
and Jessica Severance hosted a
walkathon tune-up session on a
treadmill on June 6 outside Kalei-
doscope Video on the first floor of
The Marketplace to gear up for a
60 mile walk in October.
The three St. John women were
training - while raising aware-
ness and funds - for the Breast
Cancer 3-Day Walk in Washing-
ton D.C. October 9 through 11.
Radtke, Fahy and Severance,


along with two other team Sister
Walking Abreast and thousands
of other participants, will walk
60 miles over three days to raise
funds for breast cancer research.
Eighty-five percent of the funds
raised at 3-Day series events -
which will be hosted in 15 cities
nationwide this year - go to the
Susan G. Komen for the Cure,
the largest grassroots network of
breast cancer survivors and the
largest source of non-profit funds
for breast cancer research.
The remaining 15 percent of
funds raised at 3-Day series events
goes to the National Philanthropic
Trust Breast Cancer Fund, to con-
tribute to an endowment for breast
cancer initiatives.
Before Radtke, Fahy and Sev-


erance can even lace up their
shoes, the ladies must raise at
least $2,300 each. The Sisters
Walking Abreast team, however,
has set a team goal of $17,000 for
themselves.
The June 6 tune-up was the
team's second fundraising ef-
fort and already the women have
already raised half of their goal
amount.
After Radtke participated in a
3-Day event with her sister last
September in the Twin Cities, she
knew it wouldn't be her last walk.
"It's really a life changing
experience," said Radtke. "It's
sometimes hard to put into words
but it's the most amazing thing I
have ever done in my entire life."
While the walk is a great way to

get in shape, it's about more than
just hitting the pavement. The ac-
tual walk itself is the culmination
of the journey which starts when
a participant signs up for a 3-Day
event and begins fundraising, ex-
plained Radtke.
"It's not an athletic event at
all," she said. "People who think,
'I can't walk 20 miles a day,' it's
not about that. It's all about rais-
ing money."
"You are walking with survi-
vors and cancer patients who are
undergoing treatment," Radtke
said. "All day long there are sup-
port cars going by picking up
people if they want a lift. It's not a
race, it's to raise money."
In addition to walking side by
side for three days, participants
also sleep in a "tent city" each
night of the event.
"There is a sea of pink tents
where everyone stays each night,"
said Radtke. "It's a really nice
communal feel there and everyone
shares stories from the day."
While raising awareness and
fostering a sense of community
for cancer survivors and patients,


Breast Cancer 3-Day Series events
raise serious cash for the cause.
Last year's Twin Cities walk alone
drew 3,000 people and netted $7
million. Each of the 15 events this
year is expected to rake in even
more funds for breast cancer re-
search.
The ultimate goal of 3-Day
events is stamping out breast can-
cer.
"No family should lose a moth-
er prematurely," according to the
website www.the3day.org. "Or a
dear friend, sister, wife, daughter,
co-worker. No one of us, just di-
agnosed, should have to look at
the mirror in the morning and say,
'will I survive?'"
"Everyone deserves a lifetime:
We feel it deep in our bones,"
according to the 3-Day website.
"Each step you take on the Breast
Cancer 3-Day brings us closer to
ending the disease forever."
Keep an eye out for an upcom-
ing Team Sisters Walking Abreast
fundraiser in the near future. For
more information about the 3-Day
events, check out the web site
www.the3day.org.

A love of scuba combined with
a passion for protecting the envi-
ronment led Walter Hobot to open
Love City's hottest new store.
Green Island Breeze has been
open on the second floor of Green-
leaf Commons for just over a
week, but is already enjoying a
steady stream of customers who
share Hobot's love of sustainable
materials.
"I'm often asked about the term
'sustainability,'" said Hobot. "In
1987, the World Commission on
Environment and Development
created a definition for sustainabil-
ity, which reads 'to meet the needs
of the present without compromis-
ing the ability of the future genera-
tions to meet their own needs.'"
When Hobot couldn't find an
appropriate souvenir during a trip
to St. John, he realized there was a
void that needed to be filled.
"I've been down to St. John
many, many times as scuba div-
ing is one of my passions," said
Hobot. "On one of my trips, I was
looking to bring back some t-shirts
and stuff that would be appropri-
ate for my daughters back home in
Minneapolis. But I couldn't find
anything."
"That started me thinking may-
be other people have the same
problem," Hobot said. "Also I've
always had this passion for the en-
vironment and with the store I've
brought the two together. I was
looking to start a business on St.
John and we'll eventually move
down."
"It might not happen for a while,
but we'll get there," said Hobot.
As a retired U.S. History and
Government teacher, Hobot also
brings his love of education to
Green Island Breeze.
"You can take the teacher out of
the classroom, but you can't take
the classroom out of the teacher,"
Hobot said. "I thought I could
have eco-friendly clothing at the
store and educate people at the
same time."
Having researched the business
of eco-friendly clothing materials,
Hobot believes that the industry is
at a crossroads.
"Through my research, I found

that manufacturing isn't going to
put all this money in research and
development of green products if
it's just talk," said Hobot. "Public
policy is changed by consumers'
purchases. They are kind of wait-
ing to see if this green thing is just
a buzz word or if people are seri-
ous about changing public policy
with their buying power."
With a full selection of cloth-
ing made from sustainable materi-
als and high-quality cotton, Green
Island Breeze can help customers
take a stand with their purchases.
Two-thirds of the products in the
store are made from bamboo,
hemp and organic cotton.
There are numerous merits to
using sustainable materials over
other materials which depend on
pesticides and have more of an
impact on the environment. As the
fastest growing plant on the planet,
bamboo can grow up to three feet a
day, according to Hobot.
"Bamboo grows anywhere and
leaves the topsoil in great shape,"
said the Green Island Breeze own-
er. "Bamboo produces more oxy-
gen than trees and bamboo prod-
ucts are softer than cotton."
While hemp is just as soft as
bamboo, it's even more durable
and has been used for centuries,
Hobot added.
"George Washington's uniform
was made from hemp and so was


the first flag of the United States,"
said Hobot. "Hemp is probably the
most durable fabric you can find
and it's cooler than cotton. It's like
a miracle fabric and I can't believe
it hasn't caught on much sooner."
Products made from 100 per-
cent cotton round out Hobot's in-
ventory.
"Some people just like 100 per-
cent cotton, so that is the rest of
our merchandise," he said. "But
we did something a little different,
we contacted a company which
has been embroidering fabrics for
35 years and found out the opti-
mal weight to have the most com-
fortable clothing that retains its
shape."
The optimal weight for cotton,
according to Hobot, is 6.1 ounces
at which weight the material is best
able to hold dyes and screen print-
ings and still maintain its shape
over repeated washings.
Green Island Breeze offers a full
range oft-shirts, hemp and organic
cotton dresses, dharma pants, dress
shirts, hats, souvenirs and more.
"We've kept the locals in mind
and I think we have something for
everyone," said Hobot.
Stop by the shop - located
on the second floor of Greenleaf
Commons across from the Westin
Resort and Villas - between 10
a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday through
Saturday.

Guests Flip for Rosewood with Caneel Bay's New Flip Video Program


By Andrea Milam
St. John Tradewinds
Caneel Bay Resort, long known for its
laid back, low-tech approach to vacations, is
bringing guests into the 21st century with its
Flip For Rosewood program.
Along with four other Rosewood resorts,
Caneel is now offering its guests compli-
mentary access to Flip UltraHD camcord-
ers during their vacations. At the end of
their stay, Caneel's concierge will download
guests' videos to YouTube or bum the foot-
age to a DVD as a souvenir to share with
friends and family.
The program began when Rosewood ap-
proached Pure Digital Technologies Inc.,
the company which manufactures the Flip
UltraHD, to create a special new offering
for its guests, explained Caneel Managing
Director Nikolay Hotze.
"We wanted to create a unique program
that our guests would enjoy and benefit
from," said Hotze. "We created Flip for
Rosewood to provide guests with a unique
experience - something they can't find
anywhere else."
The rise of Internet social networking
has made it possible for vacationers to share
their trip with friends and family, according
to a press release issued by Rosewood.
"With the rise of Facebook, YouTube
and Twitter, the thrill of a perfect vacation
is magnified by the knowledge that your


Caneel Bay guests have access to use these Flip UltraHD cameras to


record their vacation memories.

getaway is being enjoyed, virtually, by your
loved ones back home," according to the re-
lease.
The newly released Flip UltraHD is an
easy to use, pocket-sized high definition
camcorder which features 120 minutes of
record time, a large LCD screen and re-
chargeable batteries.
Caneel concierges will present guests
with the camcorder upon their arrival and
share easy to use tips for the best results.
The camcorders are also available at


Rosewood Sand Hill, Menlo Park, Califor-
nia; Rosewood Mayakoba, Riviera Maya,
Mexico; Rosewood Little Dix Bay, Virgin
Gorda; and Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi,
Santa Fe, New Mexico.
The Flip For Rosewood program is in
keeping with Rosewood's tradition of offer-
ing its guests a unique experience, accord-
ing to the press release.
"Differentiating itself from other luxury
hotel companies by offering unique ameni-
ties and programs that cannot be found any-

where else, Rosewood has a proud tradition
of providing guests with once in a lifetime
opportunities and the most in demand new
products," according to Rosewood's re-
lease.
Above all, the program makes it easy to
share vacation memories with loved ones,
explained Hotze.
"The Flip For Rosewood program pro-
vides guests the opportunity to capture
their vacation memories on the digital cam-
corder and instantly share with their social
network," he said. "Whether filming their
children diving into the ocean, a romantic
moment over dinner, or a stunning sunset,
guests of Caneel Bay are able to share these
special vacation memories with their family
and friends."

Sen. Sprauve Hosting St. John Hours
St. John Tradewinds
In an effort to be readily accessible to the residents of St. John,
Senator Patrick Simeon Sprauve will host office hours on the is-
land from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, June 19, when the senator
and his staff will be available in the St. John Legislature building.
"Although I have an open-door policy, I know that it may be
a challenge for some St. John residents to travel to St. Thomas to
meet with me," Sprauve said. "I want to hear first-hand the con-
cerns of St. Johnians and by having these office hours people have
better access to me and my staff. I look forward to meeting with
the people of St. John."
Based on the response from the residents of St. John, the sena-
tor said he may consider establishing office hours on St. John on
a monthly basis.
Sprauve is the chairman of the 28th Legislature's Committee
on Health. He also serves on five other committees: Rules and Ju-
diciary; Planning and Environmental Protection; Appropriations
and Budget; Public Safety; Homeland Security and Justice; and
Housing, Sports and Veterans Affairs. Senator Sprauve is also an
ex-officio member of the VI. Public Services Commissions.

ficers on St. John arrested two
men over the weekend of June
6 and 7 in the Cruz Bay area.
VIPD officers arrested
23-year-old Melgin De La Cruz
Belez, also known as Daniel
Rodriquez, and charged him
with Simple Assault and Bat-
tery and Identity Theft follow-
ing an altercation in a St. John

night club.
According to the initial report police responded to
a fight at Cap's Place at about 10:30 p.m. on June 6.
The 46-year-old victim said he told his girlfriend
to stop dancing with Belez and then Belez struck him
several times causing bleeding and injuries to his
face.
Upon his arrest, Belez gave his name as Daniel Ro-
driquez and produced a valid driver's license issued
in Puerto Rico. VIPD later contacted Belez's mother
who confirmed that the suspects' name is Melgin De
La Cruz Belez, a native of the Dominican Republic.
Belez was placed into the custody of the Bureau of
Corrections pending further court action.
Belez appeared in V.I. Superior Court on Mon-
day, June 8, before Judge Leon Kendall who dropped
charges of carrying a dangerous weapon, aiding and
abetting and third-degree assault. Kendall upheld only
the charge of simple assault against Belez.
Since Belez, a native of the Dominican Republic,
is in the territory illegally, Kendall remanded him to
the Bureau of Corrections to allow the Justice Depart-
ment to contact immigration officials, according to a
published report.
VIPD officers arrested 39-year-old Devon David
Crooke on Sunday morning, June 7, and charged him
with Possession with Intent to Distribute a Controlled


Substance.
Crooke was arrested June 7
at about 11:30 a.m. in the Pine
Peace area of St. John. At the
time of his arrest Crooke had
in his possession 43 dime bags
of marijuana and another larger
zip lock bag full of marijuana.
Crooke was also charged with
evon Crooke Resisting Arrest, Aggravated
Right: Assault and Battery, Destruc-
Cruz Belez tion of Property, Delaying and
Obstructing a Police Officer
and Disobeying a lawful order.
According to police, while on routine patrol in the
area Crooke was observed acting in a suspicious man-
ner and ran when approached by police officers. After
a foot chase Crooke was apprehended, however, he
continued to resist arrest by kicking and striking the
officers.
While being transported to the command, Crooke
damaged the patrol car by kicking it and continued
to kick when he placed in a holding cell. Crooke also
made threats on the lives of the police officers while
in custody.
Crooke was held on $15,500 bail and was remand-
ed to the custody of the Bureau of Corrections pend-
ing further court action.
Appearing in court on June 8, Kendall upheld the
charges against Crooke, but reduced his bail.
"The defendant is indigent," Kendall was quoted
in the V.I. Daily News. "He can't afford to pay an at-
torney and most likely he woud not be able to post
bail."
Kendall ordered Crooke to be released upon post-
ing $100 cash bond. Crooke alleged that he was beat-
en at the Leander Jurgen Command, a charge which
Kendall ordered public defender Samuel Joseph to
investigate, according to the Daily News.

St. John Tradewinds, June 15-21, 2009 13


Historical Bits


& Pieces
by Chuck Pishko


National Prohibition


St. John Tradewinds
The 1920 Volstead Act, which
defined how Prohibition was car-
ried out under the 18th Amend-
ment, outlawed the manufacture,
sale or transportation of "intoxi-
cating liquor."
The Volstead Act was riddled
with loopholes, including a lack
of criminal penalties for posses-
sion and consumption of alcohol.
The Anti-Saloon League kicked
off its drive for a constitutional
amendment in 1913 with a march
on Washington and a massive let-
ter-writing campaign that flooded
Congress with mail.
The amendment failed in 1914
but the League raised the stakes
by associating beer with the Ger-
man-American brewers. The anti-
German hysteria during World
War I sealed the deal on the 18th
Amendment and Prohibition be-
came the law of the land.
The Volstead Act only applied
to the 48 states, not the territorial
possessions. Regulations had to be
written by the U.S. Treasury De-
partment to include Puerto Rico
and the Virgin Islands. Thousands
of people on St. Thomas protested
the new regulations. They marched
and signed petitions.
The residents had not been
made U.S. citizens and therefore
shouldn't be subject to the 18th
Amendment. Even the Governor
protested in his dispatch to the
Secretary of the Navy. The Dan-
ish corporations, the West Indian
Company and the National Bank of
the Danish West Indies, appealed
on the grounds that the regulations
violated the Transfer Agreement
since Congress changed the laws
adversely lessening the rights of
Virgin Islanders.
In this land of punch and pain-
killers, it's hard to imagine that the
United States applied the National
Prohibition Act of 1920 to the U.S.
Virgin Islands in light of the tough
economic conditions at that time.


Rum anyone?


'4l Fours" by Alfred Codallo (courtesy Angostura Holdings Limited)


World War I had literally shut-
down international commerce
which was just coming back.
Foreign ships entering Charlotte
Amalie harbor had their stores of
liquor confiscated and fines levied
for violations of the regulation.
Also, the bay rum industry was
the one bright spot in the economy.
St John's Bay Rum had an interna-
tional reputation as a bath rub and
aftershave lotion. Markets existed
in Europe, the West Indies, Central
and South America, and the Unit-
ed States.
There were setbacks when the
Hamburg-America steamship line
pulled out of St. Thomas (they
had carried bay rum to Europe);
Michelsen moved his bay rum
business to New York City; and
a devastating hurricane severely
damaged the St. John bay trees.
Initially, Prohibition was ad-
ministered by the Puerto Rican Di-
rector Mariano R. Pasquera. The
Governor of the Virgin Islands pe-


titioned the Secretary of the Navy
to transfer the administration of
the National Prohibition Act to the
V.I. and President Harding issued
an Executive Order effecting the
request.
Black-strap molasses, the resi-
due from sugar-making, had no
market since rum production
ceased. A group of American in-
vestors obtained a permit from
the Governor to establish a small
distillery for the manufacture
of industrial alcohol and related
products.
The distillery called the Virgin
Islands Products Corporation was
located in Frederiksted where they
converted the black-strap molasses
into alcohol which was sold to lo-
cal pharmacists and bay rum man-
ufacturers as well as into second-
ary products such as candy glaze,
rose perfume spray, and virginol
spray. Unfortunately, these alcohol
products were being diverted into

"Real People" Answer Phone at Social Security Office


Editor,
We all know making phone calls these days can
be confusing with all the "Push One" for this and
"Push Five" for that and still wind up with a computer
voice.
I have found a place where they have real people
who take care of you, know what they're doing and
follow through, all the while being polite and profes-
sional.


Whenyou're ready for information on Social Secu-
rity or Disability services or know someone who needs
help, call the Social Security office at Nisky Center
and a Miss Janel Todman and her office of angels will
have all the answers you need and will help you step
by step with courtesy and respect. What a pleasure!
Thanks to everyone at the Social Security office in
Nisky Center for all your help!

Dealing with Rude Customers


Editor,
For all who work with rude cus-
tomers. It's a shame we can't actu-
ally do this! An award should go to
the Virgin Airlines desk attendant
in Sydney some months ago for be-
ing smart and funny, while making
her point, when confronted with a
passenger who probably deserved
to fly as cargo.
A crowded Virgin flight was
cancelled after Virgin's 767s had
been withdrawn from service. A
single attendant was rebooking a
long line of inconvenienced trav-


elers.
Suddenly an angry passenger
pushed his way to the desk. He
slapped his ticket down on the
counter and said, 'I have to be
on this flight and it has to be first
class."
The attendant replied, "I'm
sorry, sir. I'll be happy to try to
help you, but I've got to help these
people first, and I'm sure we'll be
able to work something out."
The passenger was unim-
pressed. He asked loudly, so that
the passengers behind him could


hear, "Do you have any idea who
I am?"
Without hesitating, the atten-
dant smiled and grabbed her pub-
lic address microphone.
"May I have your attention
please, may I have your attention
please," she began - her voice
heard clearly throughout the termi-
nal. "We have a passenger here at
Desk 14 who does not know who
he is. If anyone can help him find
his identity, please come to Desk
14."

Editor,
I read an article in the New York
Times Weekly about transplanting
coral. The subject has come up a
lot in recent times. It's not actually
new.
I was a research assistant work-
ing on coral growth experiments
way back in 1979. We transplanted
coral colonies all over the place in
Panama in both the Pacific and At-
lantic Oceans.
The basic technique was to keep
the corals in sea water and then glue
them to new places with marine ep-
oxy. This was and is a very success-
ful way to establish coral colonies
in new places or re-establish them
in former habitats.
We were moving them around to
compare their survival and growth
rates in different conditions. We
used a bone stain to make the nor-


mally white coral skeleton turn
pink. After a period of time (typi-
cally a year) the stained colonies
were removed and dried. All the
new growth was white and the
original skeleton was pink. We also
moved corals to see what effect
certain animals had on them (like
damsel fish).
The indisputable conclusions
from these and previous studies
is that corals grow very slowly in
ideal conditions which are clean,
clear and warm (but not too warm)
water.
It takes thousands of years for
a substantial coral reef structure
to develop. Therefore if corals are
transplanted somewhere it will take
thousands of years for a structural
reef to develop and that is only if
environmental conditions are ideal.
There is nothing wrong with


transplanting corals. It needs to be
known that this cannot re-create a
coral reef in anywhere close to doz-
ens of human generations. It is anal-
ogous to the problem of replanting
a tropical rain forest. If these types
of restoration are successful they
will be recorded by students of an-
cient history.
There is a useful quick fix with
replanting coral that has been re-
cently broken. If a boat crashes into
a coral reef, the broken pieces can
be re-glued and damage will be
minimized. The real issue and dif-
ficult task remains.
We have to stop the pollution
and environmental degradation that
has already killed the majority of
coral reefs on earth. The good news
is that we have the knowledge and
technology to do it.

Coral Reef Restoration and Coral Growth

















Dear Fellow Virgin Islander,
Earlier today, I announced the decision I have tak-
en with respect to the Proposed Constitution recently
forwarded to me by the Fifth Constitutional Conven-
tion. Since receiving the draft, I have been reviewing
its provisions. I also requested a legal opinion from
the Attorney General.
Based upon the Opinion of the Attorney General,
and my own reading of the plain language of the laws
and documents before me, I have determined that the
Proposed Constitution does not comply with the re-
quirements of federal and local law.
Because it fails to do so in fundamental and essen-
tial ways, I accept the Opinion of the Attorney Gener-
al that my duty as Governor here is clear and that I am
not in a position to legally forward the document that
was sent to me to the President of the United States.
I have far too much pride in, and on behalf, of the
people of the Virgin Islands of all ancestry and color
to support any law which does not protect and defend


Dear Editor,
I thought a face lift was something you did when
you didn't like your looks anymore. Who decided that
the infamous Triangle needed a "Face Lift"!??
The triangle has been a feature on postcards and
many tourists would stop to take pictures. It had char-
acter! Each sign was easily recognizable. You see the
Donkey and you know where to find Donkey Diner.
Now you will have tourists stopping, holding up
traffic to try to read the sign because - guess what -


the Constitution of the United States and the princi-
ples of equality and justice that make us proud to be
Americans and Virgin Islanders.
For me, this is not just a legal argument; it is a
civil rights issue. And I know on which side I stand: I
stand with the vast majority of Virgin Islanders, both
native and those who have chosen to become Virgin
Islanders. I stand on the side of equality and equal
opportunity.
Now it is up to all of us as a community to deter-
mine how we wish to move ahead. We must collec-
tively decide how best to get to the goal of a VI Con-
stitution worthy of our past, but also designed for our
future. The next chapter in our history must be written
with all people of goodwill in the territory taking part.
Surely we can do that together.
God bless you and God Bless the Virgin Islands.

Jane Roskin Should Have Permanent Position at GBS


Editor,
Several months ago, Dionne Wells, principal of
Guy Benjamin School, arranged a tour of her school
for the board of directors of Kids First!, a nonprofit
corporation formed to support education on St. John.
We left our visit with a very favorable impression
of the school and its teachers, particularly the woman
who led our tour - Jane Roskin. Her commitment to
the children of Guy Benjamin School and the profes-
sionalism with which she did her job were impres-
sive.
The ability to read and comprehend are essential
"core skills" necessary for success in life. It's criti-
cal that these skills be developed early in a child's
schooling so that they can succeed in the increasingly
rigorous years ahead. That is why we were so pleased
to see someone of Jane Roskin's ability leading the
efforts to promote reading and literacy.
A few months after our visit we learned that Jane's


job was in jeopardy due to a funding shortfall. As a
result, the Kids First! board quickly and unanimously
provided an emergency grant to sustain Jane's posi-
tion through the remainder of the school year.
In addition to ensuring the continuity of this pro-
gram we were confident that the need for this posi-
tion and the proven competence Jane brought to the
job would enable Guy Benjamin School to receive the
support necessary to maintain her position.
The recent demonstrations at Guy Benjamin
School confirm that the parents of children there also
recognize Jane's importance to the quality of educa-
tion their children receive. We strongly encourage the
leaders of our education system to listen to the needs
of the Coral Bay community and permanently employ
Jane in this important position.
Sincerely,
Bruce L. Claflin, President
Kids First!, St. John, VI


they are all two-foot by two-foot signs! No character
-just squares.
What was the liability anyway? Was it that some-
one might slip and fall into the sign and hurt them-
selves? I don't get it.
This is not a "win-win situation for Coral Bay" as
Rymer has said. This is a sad day for Coral Bay. I wish
I had taken a picture of it before it was taken away.
Sadly,
Nancy Nemeth

Tristan Ewald Among Winners of Share My USVI Photo Contest


St. John Tradewinds
After the judges reviewed nearly
1,000 photo submissions and the
public cast more than 2,000 votes,
the winners of the Share My USVI
Photo Contest at www.ShareMy-
USVI.com have been decided.
The Department of Tourism
extends its congratulations to the
overall winner of the main contest,
Garvin Powell of St. Croix, for his
photo Festival, and John Gordon,
the runner-up from St. Croix for his
photo Sunset at Sandy Point. Pow-
ell will receive $2,000 cash and
Gordon will receive a brand-new
digital camera.
The three winners of the Ages 17
and Under contest will each receive
a savings bond valued at $2,000.
The winners are:
Ages 5-10: Jordan Swainson of
St. Croix for her photo Old Mom-
ma Tree watching over the kids
Ages 11-13: Jai Thomas of St.
Croix for his photo A red and green
mango
Ages 14-17: Tristan Ewald of St.


John for his photo Island Time
The overall winner Powell is a
born-and-bred Crucian completing
his last year of college with the Art
Institute of San Diego, where he is
a photography major. Following his
graduation in 2010, he hopes to be-
come a professional commercial or
fashion photographer.
His winning photo, Festival, was
captured last year during the St.
Croix Crucian Christmas Festival.
While in school, Powell formerly
worked as a part-time photographer
for the St. Croix Avis.
Runner-up Gordon of St. Croix
is a process operator by day. He
was snapping photos of sunsets
on the beach one evening when a
couple caught his eye. He showed
the couple his photos, and they in
turn suggested he enter them in the
Share My USVI photo contest.
Swainson is a fifth grader at
St. Croix's Country Day School.
Though she's never taken any pho-
tography classes, she's had an in-
terest in photography since she was


6 years-old. After passing by the
Frederiksted playground one day,
she looked up at a gnarly tree and
thought it looked like an Old Mom-
ma, watching over the children in
the playground. This tree was the
inspiration for her winning photo.
Thomas attends St. Croix Coun-
try Day School in St. Croix where
he is in the 8th grade. He took a
photography class for a week dur-
ing his school's Mini Gusto pro-
gram. Though he doesn't want to
be a professional photographer
when he grows up, he enjoys tak-
ing photos and was inspired to snap
A Red and Green Mango because
he loved the way the color of the
mango looked against the tree.
Ewald Wins 14-17 Age Group
Ewald is in the 11th grade at St.
John's Gifft Hill School. He has
taken photography classes with
Steve Simonsen, whom Ewald
credits with "setting him on the
right track" with photography.
Though he's not quite sure whether
he wants to be a professional pho-


tographer, he does think it will be
an ongoing side project.
His winning photo was taken
while awaiting his turn in a video
production class at Maho Bay with
Simonsen. His favorite subjects are
his friends, and pal Justin is fea-
tured in this shot.
The residents of the Virgin Is-
lands chose the winners in an on-
line vote. The top two photos in the
Main contest with the most overall
votes, regardless of category, were
selected as winner and runner-up.
The top scoring photo in each of
the three Ages 17 and Under con-
test categories were named contest
winners.
The DOT launched this contest
as part of the overall web redesign
and rebranding initiative, with the
goal of creating a special collection
of images that best capture the es-
sence of the USVI. Photos will be
used for marketing to potential visi-
tors.
The winning photos can all be
seen at www.ShareMyUSVI.com.


Historical Bits and Pieces: National Prohibition 1920-1923


Continued from Page 13
illegal channels. The spray
products became potable alcohol
with little manipulation.
The Prohibition laws failed as a
reaction against the powers of the
federal government, a rejection of
the effort to legislate social reform,
and a fear that society would lose
respect for all of the law. Also, in
the states people had had enough
of the gangsters in control of the
liquor industry and the corruption


of government enforcement offi-
cials.
The government also lost $11
billion in liquor excise taxes. Pro-
hibition had to go. It was officially
repealed by the 21st Amendment.
Just as the Congress had to pass a
special act to apply Prohibition to
the islands, however, they had to
pass a special act to end it a few
months after the 21st Amendment.
At that time, seven permits
were issued to manufacture rum.


The permits were issued to Isaac
Paiewonsky, Josephine and Marie
Hoffmann, Santa Cruz Distillers,
Bornn Distilling Company, the
Diamond Rum Company, and the
St. Croix Distilling Company. Six
permits to import liquors were is-
sued to Waldemar A. Miller, A.H.
Lockhart, A. Lugo and Company,
the West Indian Company, Daniel
Valls, and M.E. Trepuk.
Thus the noble experiment end-
ed almost like it started.


Information on Prohibition in
the Virgin Islands is almost non-
existent or simply anecdotal. The
only reliable source I could find is
an essay by Isaac Dookhan pub-
lished in the Journal of the College
of the Virgin Islands, No. 5, May,
1979 entitled "Volsteadism or Na-
tional Prohibition in the United
States Virgin Islands." The only

St. John Tradewinds
The Virgin Islands Energy
Office is hosting three town
meetings to receive input from
residents concerning the VI.
Comprehensive Energy Strat-
egy.
The plan was produced over
the last few months by the
Southern States Energy Board
under the direction of Energy
Office and a policy advisor
within the office of the Gover-
nor. Funding for the project was
made available, in part, from
the United States Department
of the Interior.
The strategy is designed to
ensure the availability of af-
fordable and reliable energy for
the future and maintain a high
standard of living for the citi-
zenry.
The strategy outlines the
current energy situation, notes
energy resource options, and
lists specific strategies to meet
the main objectives.


VINP Fee-Free Weekends


St. John Tradewinds
In support of a declaration is-
sued by Sectary of Interior Sala-
zar, the V.I National Park will add
three fee-free weekends over the
summer, the V.I National Park and
V.I. Coral Reef National Monu-
ment Superintendent Mark Hard-
grove has announced.
VINP will honor fee-free days
at Trunk Bay on June 20 and 21,
July 18 and 19, and again August
15 and 16.
These fee-free days are in addi-
tion to National Public Lands Day,


September 26 and Veterans Day,
November 11.
Trunk Bay is one of the most
visited beaches on St. John, and is
home to an underwater trail. One
may snorkel over the reef and read
plaques which identify coral and
fish along the trail.
Hardgrove encourages visitors
to Trunk Bay during the fee-free
days to ride safari taxis in order to
avoid over crowding in the Trunk
Bay parking lot.
For more information call 340-
776-6201, ext. 249.


Friends SCA Summer Trail Crew Program


St. John Tradewinds
This is the ninth summer
Friends of V.I. National Park is
working in partnership with Stu-
dent Conservation Association
and V.I. National Park to sponsor
a student trail crew for four weeks
in June and July.
This year's crew arrived on
June 11 and will work on island
through July 10. Friends' SCA


Trail Crew Program provides stu-
dents between the ages of 15 and
19 with a unique outdoor experi-
ence repairing and maintaining
hiking trails while living in VINP.
Through this program, trail
crew members are introduced to
a variety of topics including out-
door work, camping and hiking
skills, low impact outdoor living,
and a basic cultural and ecological


knowledge of the island.
This summer's crew consists of
two Virgin Island students from
St. Croix, two Virgin Island stu-
dents from St. Thomas, one lo-
cally hired crew leader, and three
students and one leader from the
continental U.S.
At the request of the Park's
maintenance department and with
the assistance of Friends Volunteer
Coordinator Jeff Chabot, the crew
will be clearing vegetation, build-
ing and repairing stone steps, re-
pairing damaged drainage ditches,
and removing loose rock on our
trails. Their work will reduce ero-
sion to trails vulnerable to deterio-
ration due to steep slopes, shallow
topsoil, and severe rain.
In addition to learning about
trail maintenance and developing
an understanding of their role as
responsible stewards of the envi-
ronment, the students will learn
important team building and lead-
ership development skills while
living together at Cinnamon Bay
Campground.
The crew's combination of lo-
cal residents and non-Virgin Is-
landers also provides the partici-
pants with a unique and beneficial
cross-cultural experience.
At the end of the four-week
program, VINP will have between
6 and 8 miles of its most heavily
utilized trails in safe and environ-
mentally sound condition.
The VINP continues to face se-
vere maintenance challenges due
to continued federal budget cuts.
The VINP relies more and more
on volunteer groups, like SCA, to
help maintain the natural and cul-
tural resources of the park


The plan sets forth 31 strat-
egies to support the above en-
ergy goals. The strategies cover
broad areas such as energy ef-
ficiency, alternative energy and
specific issues such as reducing
the Water and Power Author-
ity's transmission and distribu-
tion system losses and adopting
an updated Tropical Energy
Code.
The hearing will be on St.
John on Thursday, June 18, at
the Cruz Bay legislature build-
ing from 6 to 9 p.m.
Copies of the plan can be
reviewed at www.vienergy.org.
There will also be copies avail-
able at the hearing. All mem-
bers of the public are invited.
Members of the Energy Office
staff and members of the South-
ern States Energy Board will be
available to answer questions.
For more information call
VIEO, a division of the Gover-
nor's Office, at 774-3320 on St.
Thomas.

WuIL THERE EVER

JUSTICE FOR JAMIE?


~4~-


June 19, 2009 marks the two-year anniversary of the
murder of our son and brother, Jamie Cockayne.
Will the guilty ever be held accountable for their
despicable crime? Will our family ever find some
measure of peace by achieving justice for our beloved
Jamie's untimely death at the age of 21?


We will never give up our efforts to ensure that his killers
suffer the consequences for their heinous acts.

Please pray that Jamie and all innocent victims of crime in
the USVI will someday receive the justice they deserve.

- The Family of James Patrick "Jamie" Cockayne


Jamie Cockayne of New Hope, Pennsylvania was murdered in Cruz Bay on June 19, 2007. To date, there has been no resolution in the case.
