Roadway Committee Suggests Fixes for Safe Travel
By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
After getting the go-ahead from
Department of Public Works Com-
missioner Darryl Smalls in Febru-
ary to form an ad-hoc committee
to review island road conditions
the group's findings have fallen on
Norman Gledhill, Paul Devine,
Austin Dalmida, Rudolph Thomas
and Edmund Roberts have been
meeting weekly for months to dis-
cuss road conditions on St. John.
Since compiling their findings
into a report more than a month
ago, however, the group has heard
nothing from Smalls or anyone at
Despite the snub, the St. John
Roadway Advisory Committee
plans to continue their work in
hopes of attracting Smalls' atten-
tion in the future, explained Gle-
"Our plan to try to come up with
more safety ideas and we'd love to
meet with the commissioner," said
The group compiled a 10 page
report outlining dangerous areas
on Love City's roads and recom-
mending possible solutions to the
problems. Before itemizing spe-
cific areas of concern, the commit-
tee set forth general issues facing
roadways on island.
"As a general note, the com-
mittee felt that safe traveling on
St. John roads was of immediate
concern," according to the Road-
way Advisory Committee report.
"More specifically, it was found
that St. John roads lacked in sev-
eral areas: insufficient signage
overall for all roads; road striping;
insufficient speed limit signage;
absence of dangerous area sig-
nage; and potholes and poor patch-
Signage was a major concern for
the committee. From "Keep Left"
to signaling dangerous curves
or areas, the committee found a
dire lack of signage on Love City
"St. John is a tourist destination
where many visitors are unfamil-
iar with the roads," according to
the committee's report. "Speed
limit signs are lacking or missing
as are 'Keep Left' signs. St. John
does not have any adequate route
"Throughout St. John, as it is in
many area of the Virgin Islands,
roadways contain very dangerous
curves," according to the commit-
tee's report. "Where it is the norm
for locals to beep a horn when ap-
proaching these dangerous areas,
visitors have no such understand-
ing. Further, without proper warn-
ing or speed limit signage, vehicles
often round these curves at exces-
sive speeds, often well above the
As dangerous as some of the ar-
eas on St. John roadways are, the
problems are compounded by the
lack of striping, according to the
"There is ample evidence that
St. John roads are inadequately
striped or not striped at all," ac-
cording to the report. "This is es-
pecially important on Centerline
Road, which is the heaviest trav-
elled road on St. John and even
more important for evening traffic.
Narrow, winding roads make for
dangerous driving conditions and
missing road striping makes the
situation even more dangerous."
The committee also recom-
mended widening most roads on
St. John and completing the con-
struction of existing roads.
"Typical St. John roads are
very narrow as they are through-
out the Virgin Islands," according
to the report. "Existing easements
should be ascertained and possible
roadside private lands identified.
In those areas where excessively
dangerous conditions are evident,
such as curves, narrow bridges,
rockslide zones and the like, road
widening should be considered for
"Throughout St. John, numer-
ous roads have been designated as
federal routes, funded or partially
funded, partially maintained or in-
stalled and, in many cases, never
completed," according to the
Roadway Committee report.
The committee lists each road
on St. John which is federally-
funded and incomplete and "high-
ly recommends that the comple-
tion of all federally-funded roads
on St. John be undertaken."
While the entire report details a
number of issues and recommen-
dations to improve St. John roads,
the committee's biggest concern is
"It starts with roadway striping
and signage," said Gledhill. "The
committee recognizes that many
of the recommendations will re-
quire a long-term plan, but for the
short-term, safety is the primary

Third Circuit Rules Against Government, '06 Tax Bills Rescinded Again
By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Never mind those 2006 property tax bills sent out last
In a ruling released on Tuesday, June 16, the U.S. Court
of Appeals for the Third Circuit ruled against the V.I. Gov-
ernment in the latest of an almost decade-long legal battle
over property taxes in the territory.
The high court's ruling upheld a September 11, 2008
order by VI. District Court Judge Curtis Gomez which re-
scinded property tax bills and found the V.I. Government in
contempt of court.
In the Third Circuit's opinion, written by Chief Judge An-
thony Scirica and signed off by judges Thomas Ambro and
D. Brooks Smith, the court found that the V.I. Government
did not meet the criteria required to lift a 2003 injunction.
The May 2003 injunction was issued after several com-
mercial property owners successfully sued the V.I. Govern-
ment in District Court for essentially establishing an illegal
property tax system.
The court-ordered injunction froze property tax rates at
1998 levels until a fair and equitable system of assessing
property taxes was established and a functioning Board of
Tax Review was operational.
A territory-wide property revaluation project wrapped up
last year and the V.I. Government issued property tax bills
last August for 2006 reflecting the new rates. The govern-
ment did so, however, before the court lifted the 2003 in-
In September 2008, Gomez rescinded the property tax
bills and found the V.I. Government in contempt of court,
leveling a $5,000 a day fine until the government complied
with the court order. The V.I. Government immediately ap-
pealed the ruling to the Third Circuit Court of Appeals and
requested a stay of the contempt order.
After arguing the case in January, the V.I. Government
once again issued property tax rates for 2006 last month.
The Third Circuit's June 16 ruling essentially voids those
bills and sends the government back to square one, with an
expected $28 million shortfall.
"As a result of the appeals court decision, the Tax As-
sessor's office will be rescinding the 2006 real property tax
bills," according to a prepared statement from Government
House. "In addition, the Executive Order which was issued
setting due dates for those property tax bills will be vacat-
The ruling blocks the government's ability to issue real
property tax bills for the year 2006 and represents a loss in
revenue of approximately $28 million dollars, according to
the Government House statement.
In Scirica's opinion, the V.I. Government did not meet
the second condition to lifting the May 2003 decree, the
requirement of a "functioning Board of Tax Review that
consistently holds hearings and reaches determinations on
"After a hearing on July 2, 2008, to determine the Board's
functionality, the District Court found the Board of Tax Re-
view, while functioning to 'some degree,' remained in dis-
array,'" according to the Third Circuit's opinion. "At the
evidentiary hearing the Commissioner of Finance and the
Executive Director of the Board of Tax Review...addressed
the number of times the Board of Tax Review had met since
the 2003 Decree (eight-five in 2006, one in 2007, and the
last two meetings in May 2008 and June 2008), the num-
ber of appeals still pending before the board (374), and the
regularity of future meetings (to occur on the last Friday of
"Disturbingly, however, both witnesses were uncertain
whether the Board of Tax Review was notifying taxpayers
of their appeal dates," according to the court's ruling. "The
Commissioner of Finance even testified that at the May
2008 meeting no taxpayers were present to participate in the
appeal process. In light of this evidence, the District Court
found the Board of Tax Review's compliance with the May
2003 Decree to be 'sporadic, short-lived, and of recent vin-
"We find no clear error in the District Court's underlying
findings of fact, and we agree with the District Court's ap-
plication of fact to law - that the Board of Tax Review's
functionality did not meet constitutionally required due pro-
cess standards," according to the ruling.
As of press time, there was no word from Government
House on the government's next move. Attorney General
Vincent Frazer will be addressing the court as to the require-
ments of the government based on the order and identifying
the next steps forward, according to a statement from Gov-
Cruz Bay Business Owner Pistol Whipped, Robbed in Daylight Attack
St. John Tradewinds
A Monday morning, June 15, assault on a
Cruz Bay business owner eerily echoed an early
morning attack on another Love City business-
man in January.
On Monday, January 5, at around 8 a.m.
Cap's Place owner Juan Ayala was gunned
down outside his home in Lower Estate Pastory.
Just about six months later and less than a mile
away, Wallace Coburn, a long-time co-owner of
the popular Larry's Landing, was attacked.
This time the bar owner was shot at, pistol
whipped and robbed in front of the Islandia
Building in Cruz Bay on Monday morning, June
15, just before 8 a.m.
V.I. Police Department officials were advised
of a first degree robbery on June 15 in which
Coburn was robbed of cash, shot at and pistol
whipped, according to a prepared statement by
VIPD spokesperson Melody Rames.
The victim told police that he was approached
by an unknown male who pointed a gun at him
and demanded money, according to police.
The suspect shot in the direction of the Co-

The suspect was a black male whose face
was covered with a shirt . He stood about 5'7"
and was wearing a grey shirt and dark pants,
according the VIPD.
Coburn was treated at the Myrah Keating
Smith Community Health Center and released.
The June 15 attack is the latest in a string of
violent Cruz Bay incidents over the past sev-
eral months, and the second of the year specifi-
cally targeting a business owner. A visitor from
Tennessee was jumped near Joe's Diner in the
early morning hours of April 12 and a St. John
resident was severely beaten behind Mongoose
Junction just after midnight on May 2.
The latest attack, in broad daylight, is the
most worrisome yet, according to one St. John
"An attack in broad daylight on the busiest
street on St. John with a gun should concern the
entire community," the resident said. "Perpetra-

Cleamena Hodge-Duncan Is 2009 Festival Food Fair Honoree
By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
After almost 10 years of whipping up local delicacies
at booth number six in Festival Village, Clemeana Hodge-
Duncan is being recognized as 2009 Food Fair Honoree.
The administrative officer at Julius E. Spruave School
- from where Duncan herself graduated and has worked
now for 35 years - learned to cook from her mother, she
"My mother Mildred Foy was from Tortola, but we moved
here when I was three months old," said Hodge-Duncan. "I
just learned to make things watching my Mom when I was
young. We used to all help out."
Before the modem era of St. John Festival started, island-
ers used to gather on July fourth for a day of camaraderie,
which being on St. John, of course included great food and
"Back in the 1960s we used to call it Independence Day
and people used to set up tables by where Colombian Em-
eralds is now," Hodge-Duncan said. "My mother used to
set up a booth there and all us kids would help out frying
chicken in the big coal pot. It was always a lot of fun."
Years later, Hodge-Duncan and her sisters started serving
food like their mother used to make from their own booth at
"It's not just me," said Hodge-Duncan. "A major part of
this honor goes to my entire family who works the booth
with me every year. I could never do it without them."
Among the many people who help out at her Festival Vil-
lage booth are Hodge-Duncan's husband Claudius Duncan,
sister Naomi Hodge, LaVerne Thomas, Slyvia Russel, and
her daughters Dr. Kishann Duncan and Atty. Kyle Duncan.
"We all work the booth together," said Hodge-Dun-
"At St. John Festival we treat people
with love and respect because it's
our home and our culture. We want to

can. "We make it a lot of fun and always keep it a family
Although working a festival booth takes a lot of time and
energy, it's well worth the effort to show off St. John cul-
ture, explained Hodge-Duncan.
"It's a lot of work, but it's a lot of fun too," she said. "You
get to meet a lot of people and especially the tourists. You
get to introduce them to food they've never had and watch
them enjoy it for the first time."
"They love our food and can't wait to try everything,"
Hodge-Duncan said. "At St. John Festival we treat people
with love and respect because it's our home and our culture.
We want to share that."
While news of the recognition took her by surprise,
Hodge-Duncan is happy to accept the award as Food Fair
honoree, she explained.
"It's not something I expected, but it's nice," she said.
"It's like people saying thanks for everything you do, which
Be sure to watch Hodge-Duncan be recognized as Food
Fair honoree on Sunday, June 28, at 1 p.m. at Frank Powell
Park. And stop by booth number six to taste some of the
best local fare around from kallaloo, conch and whelks to
johnny cakes - which Hodge-Duncan says are the "best in
Village" - and vegetarian and meat lasagne.

Benjamin, Simons and Foster Honored at Chamber Dinner
By Jaime Elliot
St. John Tradewinds
With the majestic backdrop of Magen's
Bay, a crowd of St. John and St. Thomas
residents gathered at the St. Peter Great-
house on Saturday evening, June 13, to con-
gratulate this year's Chamber of Commerce
Wilbur "Bill" LaMotta Community Service
An educator, a philanthropist, a tireless
community advocate and a dynamic real
estate agent were among those honored at
In addition to being a renowned com-
poser and musician, LaMotta, who died in
1980, was president of the St. Thomas/St.
John Chamber of Commerce, a Small Busi-
nessman of the Year and a civic leader. The
awards in his honor were originally estab-
lished in 1983 to recognize public officials'
outstanding contributions which reflect La-
Motta's own life work.
Awards are handed out to individuals in
the private, public and non-profit sectors
as well as to students who show leadership
skills and commitment to their community.
Esteemed St. John educator Guy Ben-
jamin was honored with this year's Pub-
lic Sector Award. Benjamin was the first
St. Johnian to graduate from the Charlotte
Amalie High School and went on to earn a
bachelor's degree from Howard University
as well as a master's degree from New York
(L to R): Guy Benjamin, John Foster and Steve and Helen Simon.
After returning to St. John from the main-
land, Benjamin served his community as a
teacher and superintendent of schools. His
legacy lives on today as the Coral Bay el-
ementary school just down the road from
his house bears the name "Guy H. Benjamin
"Benjamin is being honored for his many,
many years an educator and for his signifi-
cant contributions to improving the quality
of life on St. John and the greater Virgin Is-
lands' community," said Chamber president
John Foster, owner of John Foster Real
Estate, was recognized with this year's Pri-
vate Sector Award for his professional work
as well as his support of the Nana Baby
"The Private Sector Award is being given
to John Foster for his years of work as one
of the most dynamic and successful realtors
in the Virgin Islands and for his work with
his partners in establishing the first enclosed
mall in the territory, Tutu Park Mall," said
St. John residents Helen and Steve Simon
were honored with the Non-Profit Award
for their annual sponsorship of the St. John
Christmas Music Festival and Children's
Parade, and their community advocacy.
Both of the Simons are strong supporters
of education and public safety, dedicating
countless hours to making St. John as a bet-
"Their contributions help sustain the
community's cultural fabric and at the same
time stimulate our artistic community,"
Brunt said about the Simons.
Student Achievement Awards were given
to Charlotte Amalie students Lynette Bo-
schulte and Akoya Hydman, both of whom
have achieved a plethora of distinctions.
"These two young women demonstrate
that being smart and working hard are goals
that every students should aspire to," said
Brunt. "They are both great role models for

More Volunteers Needed as Recycling Grows
By Jaime Elliott

Association of the Virgin Islands,
St. John Chapter members have
watched as aluminum can recy-
cling has taken off on St. John.
Recycling has gotten so popular
that RAVI St. John members are
having difficulty keeping up with
demand. As more and more people
recycle, RAVI St. John needs more
members and volunteers to pick up
cans at collection sites.
The group is looking for vol-
unteers to adopt bins at Bordeaux,

install bins at Cinnamon Bay and

A new ambulance boat for St. John is
a priority, V.I. Department of Health Act-

Islands senators earlier this month.
The island's current ambulance boat,
the Star of Life, has been in critical con-
dition for several years, and is presently
on dry dock in need of repairs.
While the DOH investigates the pur-
chase of a new ambulance boat, Red
Hook Boat Services is providing trans-
portation to St. Thomas for patients in
need of a level of care not available at the
Myrah Keating Smith Community Health
The new ambulance boat, designed
several years ago with the help of St. John
EMS staff and a marine consultant, will
cost upwards of $1 million, explained
DOH spokesperson Eunice Bedminster.
"The vessel must be capable of trans-
ferring safely and in reasonable comfort
in all sea conditions encountered," said
Bedminster. "The patient area is to be
fitted with counters and storage shelves,
oxygen bottle holder, sink with fresh wa-
ter, outlets, toilet compartment, monitor
holders, etc. The patient and engine area
must have sound insulation so that engine
noise in the patient area does not exceed
a certain decibel at full throttle in smooth
Additionally, the new vessel will have a
back-up generator, hydraulic steering sys-
tem, bilge pumps, aluminum fuel tanks, a
fire fighting system, air conditioning and
GPS, radar and radio capabilities.
In order to meet the demands of trans-
porting critically ill patients between St.
John and St. Thomas, the boat will be
outfitted for easy offloading of stretchers,
"Access requirements include the de-
mands of embarking and disembarking
patients on wheeled stretchers safely
from existing port facilities," she said.
"The vessel must incorporate features
that allow the safe evacuation of staff
and passengers, and the vessel must have
safe passages on deck for the crew to
move fore and aft during docking opera-
tions without passing through the patient
The new ambulance boat will be de-
signed for easy access to routine machine
maintenance due to its need for constant
service. Crew members will be able to
perform routine maintenance without en-
tering the patient area thanks to the new
In addition to the vessel's primary role
as transportation for patients, it will also
be outfitted with a rigid inflatable din-
ghy, allowing it to transfer patients from
beaches and to recover victims from the
water, according to Bedminster.
Although the details of the new am-
bulance boat's design have been well
planned, it remains unclear when the boat
will be constructed and put into service.
"Acting Commissioner Sheen is work-
ing with EMS and our legal office to
ensure that the specs and design are con-
ducive to our tropic waters," said Bed-
minster. "She is to tour a company where
the boats are made so she can see for her-
self. It will take eight months, she said, to
have a boat built to our specs."
When the new boat is put into service,
the old Star ofLife will be used as a back-
up - if badly-needed repairs are done,

Four Ladies Vie for St. John Festival Queen Crown Saturday Night
By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
One of the most anticipated nights of the
year will feature four young ladies strut-
ting their stuff and showing off their talents
as they vie for the title of Miss St. John
Festival Queen on Saturday night, June 27,
at 8 p.m. at the Winston Wells ball field.
In a first this year, the St. John Festi-
val Committee opened the pageant to St.
Thomas residents, from where two of the
four contestants hail. While the ladies com-
peting for the crown call different islands
home, they all share a passion for perfor-
mance and pride of the Virgin Islands.
Contestant #1, Lea Scott, is a 19-year-
old University of the Virgin Islands stu-
dent, who is pursuing a double major in
criminal justice and biology, pre-med.
Although the Rock City-native, who
just wrapped up her freshman year, isn't
completely settled on a career in medicine,
she's keeping her options open.
"My father has skin cancer, so that re-
ally prompted me to want to learn as much
about the disease as possible and study
health and medicine in general," said Scott.
"I'm not exactly sure what route I'm go-
ing to take as far as pre-med or criminal
justice, but it allows me a lot of potential
with my studies."
A skilled dancer, Scott and her mother
own and operate the French Academy
of Performing Arts on Main Street in St.
Thomas, where she has studied traditional
French pieces as well as Russian ballet.
When she heard that the pageant was
open to St. Thomas residents, Scott - who
is being chaperoned by Cheryl Willie -
jumped at the chance to vie for the crown.
"I've always thought about trying out so
when I heard the pageant was open to St.
Thomas residents, I decided to give it a
shot," she said.
While she's no stranger to performing in
front of a crowd, Scott still works to calm
her nerves before a show, she explained.
"I've danced a lot but this is my first
pageant," said Scott. "I always get nervous
when I get on stage, but I work through it. I
think my nerves actually get me going and
I feed off them."
St. John-native Chereena Didier is con-
testant #2. The 18-year-old Ivanna Eudora
Kean High School student just finished her
junior year and has definite ideas about her
"When I graduate from high school, I
definitely want to go right to college," said
Didier. "I want to study psychology and I'd
like to at least start my college career at the
University of the Virgin Islands. I think it
would be fun to finish school in Florida or
someplace different, but I don't want to be
too far from home."
"After I get my bachelor's degree, I want
to marry the man of my dreams and have a
few children," Didier said.
Didier, whose chaperone is Kenya Frett,
decided to compete in her first pageant at
the urging of her family and friends.

The Making of A Queen and Princess
- Oquendo Knows What it Takes
By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Lee Ann Oquendo is on a roll.
As a chaperone, she's accom-
plished the near impossible feat of
three consecutive St. John Festival
Princess selection show wins and
three consecutive Festival Queen
selection show wins.
And she's not finished yet. Oqu-
endo is looking to extend her streak
with another Queen show win this
year as she chaperones Kerla Fes-
sale - who she chaperoned to a
Princess title in 2001.
The St. John businessowner has
been chaperoning young ladies
and pre-teens for the time hon-
ored Festival selection shows since
the early 1990s. After running for
Miss St. John herself in 1979, her
first stint as a chaperone was on the
male side when she coached her el-
dest son Ricardo.
"That was back when Festi-
val included a Prince competi-
tion show," said Oquendo. "I was
scared to death at the time. I didn't
know what to expect."
Oquendo got back into the com-
petition when her younger son
Reynaldo competed and won the
Prince crown a few years later.
Since then she's overseen win-
ning, and a few losing, bids for the
Queen and Princess crowns too
numerous to count, including her
own daughter's win last year.
"I guess since 1992 or so I've
been doing it every year," said
Oquendo. "I've won some and I've
lost some. Some years I came re-
ally close, but looking back I could
see where things could have been
One key to Oquendo's many
successes over the years is her com-
plete dedication. Like a National
Football League coach studying a
video tape before a big game, Oqu-
endo meticulously reviews each
competition looking for ways to
improve year after year.
"I study the shows and the danc-
es and the routines," said the es-
teemed chaperone. "I always try to
improve and perfect everything."
As a chaperone, Oquendo
spends countless hours working
with her contestants and never
stops thinking about ways to im-
press the judges.
Lee Ann Oquendo
"I'm always thinking about what
to do for shows," said Oquendo. "I
start getting my ideas all year long.
I'll watch something on television
and think, that would make a great
"I think about it all the time,"
Oquendo sends her ladies to
modeling camp, where they learn
how to walk and carry themselves.
Then as the Festival selection
shows near, she spends every day
with her contestants.
"Starting in April, we practice
a lot, just about every day or ev-
ery other day," said the chaperone.
"Then in May and June, it's every
single day. We go over everything
over and over again because it's
really important that the girls are
comfortable and that everything
they do looks natural."
"In May and June, my family
knows that this is what I do," Oqu-
endo said. "There is no cooking
- they barely see me, but they're
Although she enjoys each seg-
ment of the competition, the Inter-
national Wear is where Oquendo
really flexes her creative muscles.
"My favorite segment is the In-
ternational Wear," said Oquendo.
"It gives you the opportunity to re-
ally be creative. I've won so many
of those segments over the years,
but I'm always trying to come up
with something different."
In addition to the 10 people who
help out the night of the show, Oqu-
endo has a core group of assistants
who work closely with the contes-
tants before the competition.
Shatik Stevens specializes in
modeling and the talent segment of
the show while Abigail Hendricks
works on the contestant's interview
skills and makes sure each routine
is perfectly polished. Oquendo's
son Reynaldo is also a big part of
her chaperone team.
"Reynaldo does a lot of work.,"
said Oquendo. "He lives in Florida,
but I talk to him every day and he
comes down the week of the show
and makes sure everything is just
Another key to Oquendo's sto-
ried success is her adherence to the
judging criteria, she explained.
"Abigail [Hendricks] and I will
talk for hours about the show," said
Oquendo. "The judging criteria is
our bible. We evaluate everything
they're looking for."
While aiming to please the
people who hand down the scores,
Oquendo doesn't forget about the
"You have to please the judges
first, but I always try to give the
audience a little something too,"
Looking back over the years,
Oquendo has done everything from
chaperone two girls in one show to
chaperone a Queen and Princess in
the same show the year the Princess
show was mined out and hosted the
same night as the Queen show. But
for all of her time and expertise,
Oquendo doesn't charge a dime.
"This is my way of giving back
to the community," said the chap-
erone. "I like the challenge and the
competition but I what I really love
is seeing the girls transform from
the experience. You see them gain
confidence and carry themselves
Don't miss this year's St. John
Festival Queen selection show on
Saturday night, June 27, at 8 p.m.
at Winston Wells ball field where
Oquendo - quite possibly Love
City's most successful chaperone
ever - might be chaperoning her
last Queen contestant.
"After my daughter won last
year, I wanted to retire," said Oqu-
endo. "But when the Festival Com-
mittee opened the competition to
St. Thomas residents, I wanted to
win it for St. John. So I'm giving
it one more shot - although I say
that every year."

Internal Revenue Urges Taxpayers To
Pick Up Re-issued Income Tax Checks
St. John Tradewinds
Virgin Islands taxpayers are reminded that the reissued May 28,
2009 income tax refund checks are available for pick up from the
Bureau's offices on all three islands.
Taxpayers are asked to bring one photo ID with proof of their
social security number in order to claim the reissued checks. Tax-
payers are also reminded to return the incorrect check to the Bu-
reau's offices, if they haven't already done so.
"Taxpayers who have already negotiated the incorrect refund
check are urged to contact the Bureau immediately to make ar-
rangements to repay any overpayment," said BIR Director Clau-
dette Watson-Anderson. "Those taxpayers who may have already
cashed a check for an amount less than was owed are also asked to
contact the Bureau for additional instructions."
The Bureau's staff is available to address both taxpayer situa-
tions on a priority basis. Questions should be directed to the Bu-
reau's Processing Branch at 777-1446 on St. John.

supporting education on St. John,
has launched a new villa rental
Under this program, participat-

them to aggressively market their

Island visitors who rent partici-
pating villas know that at no addi-

"Visitors to our island develop
a strong attachment to our com-
munity," said Bruce Claflin, presi-

many return year after year."
"Everyone wins - the villa
guest helps the children of the is-
land, the villa owner increases
rental income, and education on St.

of 'doing well by doing good.'"

"Contributing to the education of
St. John's children is of paramount
importance to all St. John busi-

President of Suite St. John. "The
Kids First! Villa Rental Program
is an innovative way to support the
education and development of St.
John's school children while offer-

bona fide program through which
they can contribute to the children
and future of St. John."
"As a mother of a seven year old
daughter, I see first-hand the need
to support the children and schools
of St. John," Kathy McLaughlinof

excited about this program and was
pleased to be involved from the be-
ginning. I look forward to sharing
this dream of a better future for our

By Bern Putnam
St. John Tradewinds
One of the most common conditions I am called
to treat on St John, other than neck, midback and low-
back pain, is tennis elbow.
A patients' main complaint is pain, usually chronic,
in the area of the outside of the elbow usually in their
dominant arm. The pain may radiate into the back of
the forearm. The onset is usually unclear, as the con-
dition seems to increase gradually.
There is usually a history of repetitive activity of
over-use such as tennis, frequent long use of a ham-
mer or screwdriver, or even using a computer mouse
with the wrist cocked backward.
The culprit is the Extensor Carpi Radialis Brevis
muscle which develops a tear where it attaches to the
elbow. This muscle extends the middle finger and
wrist. Although there is considerable pain associated
with the condition, the ability to bend the elbow fully
is preserved and x-rays generally are unremarkable.
There are many other conditions that can cause
similar complaints so it is necessary to be evaluated
by a professional in order to get proper treatment.
Some conditions may be potentially serious and in-
volve nerve pain originating from an injury to the
neck area. The upper extremity and neck need to be
evaluated before treatment begins.
Treatment for tennis elbow is generally non-surgi-
cal and involves all or some of the following: anti-in-
flammatory medications, sometimes an injection into
the area of injury to reduce swelling; a tennis elbow
brace to lessen the stress on the tendon; a brace to
prevent wrist flexion and extension while sleeping;
ice to the tendon; heat to the tightened muscles - not
at the elbow; stretches to loosen the tightened mus-
cles; ultrasound and Interferential therapy; gradual
strengthening of the muscles involved; and cessation
or modification of the offending activity.
The more chronic the condition the longer it usu-
ally takes to heal.
Prevention is always best when it comes to tennis
elbow. Some common ways to avoid the condition in
racket sports are to avoid poor stroke technique, like
leading with a flexed elbow, striking the ball off cen-
ter and a single hand back stroke.
It's also a good idea to use a proper grip size and
racket weight and not to keep strings too tight. Tennis
players should also limit play time to less than two
hours and try to play on softer surfaces.
In other work situations, the work station should be
evaluated for proper ergonomics such as supports to
keep the wrist in neutral at the computer and limiting
repetitive motions such as manual screwdrivers and
The good news is that tennis elbow rarely requires
surgery as long as it is treated properly by a health
care professional and if appropriate changes in use
are made to allow healing and prevent recurrence.

IEK Student's Work Makes a Splash
We wanted to take a moment to say thank you to
you at the Tradewinds for your coverage and support
of our Opening Reception at Bajo El Sol Gallery Fri-
day evening, June 12.
Thank you also to the students who took the time
to prepare a piece of art to be displayed in the gal-
lery and who attended and shared their work with the
guests and visitors. Thank you to the parents and sup-
porters of the students for your presence.
Everyone enjoyed the wonderful appetizers from
Sun Dog Caf6. A very special thank you is extended
to Lisa Etre and Karen Samuel, two fine teachers and
artists. The out-reach instruction provided by some of
Bajo El Sol Gallery's artists was made available in
part by both the Virgin Islands Council on the Arts
and the St. John School of the Arts and we wish to say
thank you for that very valuable support.
Lastly we want to say thank you to our artists for
hosting the reception and spending time encouraging
this group of future fine artists! The display of student
artwork will be featured for another week.

Jet lag works well as a base.
Add two parts mirror world traffic, one part
Hairpin turns, hugging cliff faces.
Finish with a float of wild donkey brays.
Shake well and served chilled over a rocky promon-
As you top the final white-knuckle rise,
You'll find your past has faded to a trace
Which blows away like spindrift
On a Caribbean breaker's crest.
You fall into rum laced dreams at last,
Haunted by reggae rhythms
Drumming up from Coral Bay.
A rooster cracks open the dawn like an egg, and
Drops the sun neatly into the bowl of morning.
Swirl in the susurrous sing-song of bananaquits
Queueing for their daybreak sugar fix.
Sip gingerly, and let the tropic ambrosia
Soothe away the remnants of last night's excess.
The questions of the day simplify themselves
With inexorable island logic.
A roller coaster ride in your rented four-by
Exposes picture postcards at every curve.
On Maho Beach, lapping waves deliver
The necessary astonishing shade of blue
Add a sprinkle of finest white grained sand
A squeeze of sun-screen and you're off
To pursue elusive fins of every imaginable hue.
Seagrape Hill again, the lights of Coral Bay
Dancing among the sailboats rocking at anchor.
A shallow draught of the evening trades
Sifts your hair, seeking lost sailers,
While the moon shepherds cloud shadows
Over Hurricane Hole, tarnishing
The rippled silver of the sea.
It is a mistake to query a bartender
The exact nature of his preparation.
Likewise, do not seek to probe
The alchemy that has transformed this place
In which you find yourself. Accept
The gift of hands knowledgeable in the arts
Of release, and drink deeply of the wonder.
You will return.

Feeling the Love in Love City
It would be unfair of us if we did not express our
sincere thanks to a very friendly greeter we met at the
St. John ferry dock. Her name is Beatrice Francis, but
she likes to be called Brenda.
We were staying at a hotel on St. Thomas, but de-
cided to visit St. John, so we purchased round-trip
tickets to go over. Somehow, when we were ready to
go back to St. Thomas, we could not find our tickets
and we were out of money.
Then came Beatrice, who was on duty at the dock.
She asked if we needed any help and we told her our
situation. With her warm personality and very friend-
On Friday morning, June 12, I was heading to St.
Thomas, navigating the construction past Dolphin
Market. I had the news on the radio. Another day
starting with the Dow Jones down, Chrystler in bank-
ruptcy, elections in Iran. More news, none of it good.
I sighed, and pulled into the secured barge area, wait-
ing my turn to board the 8:30 a.m. Boyson barge at
Enighed Marine facility.
I backed my car onto the Mister B. The barge was
only one third full, but I knew that we would pull
out of the creek without any room to spare. I glanced
to my left, where a blue Durango was settling into
All of a sudden, I saw a kitten fall from the inside
of the carriage of the Durango SUV. This small, tiger
stopped kitten looked dazed, then frightened. Within
seconds, it ran from one side of the barge, to the other,
making its way back in front of my car, then over the
side of the barge, into the water!
I sat behind my wheel, stunned. Within seconds,
I threw open my door, jumped over two cars, and
looked over the port side of the Mister B. There,
in the water, was a set of ears and a tail, frantically
swimming in circles. Thank god it was alive! It was
then I knew we had a much bigger problem ahead of
us. The bulkhead of the creek has a three-foot vertical
climb. There was no place at all for this kitten to swim
to safety. I knew it would drown.
The kitten frantically turned around and tried to
climb up on the port side of the barge, to no avail. It
then swam towards the stem of the Mister B. I knew
that once the barge engines started, the kitten would
be pulled under.
I ran back making my way between jeeps, cars and
trucks. Four of the employees of the Mister B were
already on the stem of the vessel, looking overboard.
Within seconds, Dion Otto, Raymond Athanase, Cap-
tain David Marsh and "Mokes" were already in ac-
One person lowered a ladder over the stem, and
crewmember Mokes climbed down the ladder. With
the kitten in view, and within inches of the transom
of the vessel, Mokes reached down and grabbed the
kitten by the scruff of the neck.
ly smile, she made two suggestions - that she would
explain to the captain what had happened and that she
would purchase two tickets for us.
Beatrice did purchase the two tickets for us and
we were able to get on the ferry back to St. Thomas.
She also allowed us to use her cell phone to call our
friends to pick us up on St. Thomas. How could we
ever forget this friendly greeter Beatrice?
Thank you Beatrice and keep up the good work.
We love you!
Debbie and Mark,
The kitten was handed off to another crewmember,
and then to me. Captain Marsh, who jumped into ac-
tion immediately, never had any doubt that he and his
crew would save the kitten.
"We practice our cat overboard drill," said Marsh,
flashing his usual smile.
Well members of St. John community, this wonder-
ful action from the crew of Boyson, Inc. put a smile
on my face all day! We just don't hear enough kind
stories, even though they take place all of the time,
and I just had to let everyone know how wonderful all
four of these guys were.
Wet, flea ridden, and a little underweight, the cat
was whisked off to Cruz Bay Canine Cats and Critters
where Dr. Laura treated it.
He tested negative to any feline diseases, was
bathed, wormed, and fed. He was brought back to

16 St. John Tradewinds, June 22-28, 2009
Letters to St. John Tradewinds
Numerous friends here on St.
John have inquired about Peeper's
fate. I took the frail, timid kitten
North on March 30; she spent six
weeks in Becky's veterinary clinic
in Manhattan while awaiting the
perfect home. The staff spent extra
time socializing her. They spent
many hours patting her and show-
ing her kindness.
She loved being patted, but
out of fear she frequently nipped
the friendly hands, discouraging
potential adopters. But one day
Gwen, who lives in Brooklyn,
came into Symphony Veterinary
Center and saw Pepper. "How
cute!" Then Peeper nipped Gwen
as Gwen patted her.
Gwen responded, "It's OK to
be afraid, Little One." The sequel
to the attached story is that Peeper
now lives with Gwen and her two
mature cats. Now named "Calyp-
so" in honor of her Caribbean heri-
tage, she sleeps at night in Gwen's
bed with her new mistress and one
of the two older cats who has taken
little Calypso under his care.
It's been a long journey for this
St. John kitten, but she's another
of the Animal Care Center's suc-
cessful "Off-Island Adoptions."
"Calypso" nee "Peepers"
A small kitten was dropped off
at Canines, Cats, and Critters on
the second of January. Dr. Wither-
ill, the visiting veterinarian replac-
ing Dr. Bob, examined the little
creature and made the assessment
"not a healthy specimen."
The unnamed Slii kitten"
weighed one and a half pounds,
and, according to the vet's notes,
was "covered with fleas." With
an elevated temperature and an
undernourished body, the only re-
deeming health factor was that the
kitty was found negative for FELV
and FIV (feline leukemia virus and
After three days at Canine, Cats,
and Critters, the office called Con-
nie Joseph at the St. John Animal
Care Center and asked if she would

accept her. Connie said "yes."
A Valentine Kitten
During Valentine's weekend,
Dr. Rebecca Campbell and her
seven-year-old son, Rowan, flew
in from New York City to spend
a few days with Becky's mother.
At the end of the visit and on their
way to the airport, they stopped at
the animal shelter to deliver a bag
of donated medications.
Rowan toured the cat cages and
spotted one back in a comer hold-
ing a small kitten who was peep-
ing over the litter box where she'd
taken up residence. Rowan asked
Connie the kitten's name, and she
responded that kitty didn't have a
name, but that Rowan could name
Without a pause, Rowan named
the kitty "Peeper" and asked his
mother if they could take her home.
Connie told Rowan that Peeper
had a broken hip and couldn't
travel until it was healed. Becky
told Rowan that they were on their
way to the airport and didn't have
any paperwork for Peeper to pass
through Agriculture. At this point,
Rowan turned to his grandmother
and said, "Nanny can bring her up
when she visits us next month."
It was Joseph who had noticed
that the kitten couldn't put weight
on one leg. She took her back to
Canines, Cats, and Critters on
January 15 and was told that she
needed to have an x-ray.
Joseph felt that ACC funds were
insufficient to cover the cost of an
x-ray. A client standing in the vet's
office during this conversation said
he'd pay for the x-ray. And in that
manner, with a proper diagnosis,
the yet-unnamed kitten's treatment
Rid of fleas under the doctor's
orders of an "ectosooth bath to be
blow-dried" the kitten's quality of
life began to improve. A month
later, when Rowan spotted Peeper,
she was still small but now very
beautiful. She was clean and fluffy
and her white and honey-colored
fur was soft. She was shy but in
much less pain, thanks to antibiot-
ics and the "ferret hammock" that
took the stress off her hip.
Another month later, the saga
An Off-Island Adoption Story
of Peeper's trip to the mainland
and to an eventual "perfect" home
began. Over the years, "Nanny"
had taken many St. John cats up
to homes with her friends and
relatives in New England - about
twenty, some from the shelter, but
mostly from Jacob's Ladder, Trunk
Bay, Chocolate Hole, and Oppen-
She knew the routine, but she
also knew the increasing cost of
carrying a pet onto an airplane.
She knew the traumatic minutes
when an airport security person
demanded that she remove a feral
island cat from its carrying case
so that the agent could search the
case for drugs or weapons.
There was always the possibil-
ity that the terrified cat or kitten
would wiggle out of her hands and
become lost in the airport. And
Nanny was getting old with health
problems that were making travel
increasingly difficult, even with-
out carrying a frightened animal.
News got around. St. Johnians
have a history of helping one an-
other. Nanny and Peeper were to
benefit from this ethic of "we're
all here to help one another." First
step on departure day was to get
a ride from the top of Chocolate
Hole to the shelter to collect Peep-
er and from there to the ferry.
Two good friends, Glenn and
Margarita Pizzini, immediately
volunteered. And then Paula
Myles volunteered, and then Oriel
Smith volunteered. Oriel, the Di-
rector of Grounds at Caneel Bay
resort, went even further. He vol-
unteered to ride with Nanny and
Peeper all the way to the airport
in St. Thomas and to see them
through their ordeal at the security
A Promise Made
Several days before the trip
began, Nanny received an e-mail
from her veterinarian daughter that
made all the effort worthwhile.
"I will make sure she (Peeper)
has no more pain in her life. She's
one of the lucky ones, and has ba-
sically just won the cat life lottery.
I'll take my time getting her a per-
fect home after she's all checked
out, and it may take a month, but
she'll be a pampered Manhattan
pussycat from here on out and
never have an opportunity to meet
a flea again!"
Thanks to the intervention of
security supervisor Itak, the ex-
perience of taking Peeper through
the security checkpoint turned out
to be unthreatening. As Nanny's
carry-on bags started along the
conveyor belt, she caught the eye
of a tall, impressive-looking St.
Thomian who was evidently over-
seeing the security checkpoints.
Just before the dreaded "Take
the cat out of the carrying case"
command, Nanny called out to
Itak, telling him that she was carry-
ing a very small island cat recover-
ing from a broken hip. She didn't
wish to try to remove her from the
case. Itak told her to put her other
carry-on through the scanner and
to bring the case with Peeper in-
side to a separate cubical. Smiling,
he said, "I'll do my best."
Carefully unzipping the case,
Itak took his drug-sensing wand
and passed it all around Peeper
who didn't make a peep, and sat
quietly on her towel in the center
of the case.
Then Itak gently felt around
Peeper for weapons. Peeper re-
mained calm even though she
hadn't had a sedative or a tranquil-
izer. Nanny wrote a commenda-
tion for Itak on the spot because he
had made the security checkpoint
Ferry Boat, Taxi, Plane,
Private Car, Subway Train
During the four-hour flight from
St. Thomas to Boston, Peeper still
didn't make a sound. She came
home for an overnight in Nanny's
bathroom, and then continued her
five-hour journey by car to New
There she rejoined Rowan and
Becky in theirBrooklyn apartment.
When Nanny last saw Peeper, she
was riding in her now-familiar
carrying case on a New York City
subway train with Becky.
They were en route to Becky's
veterinary center in Manhattan
where Peeper would be wormed,
have x-rays, vitamins, and social-
ization. After a three-day journey
by ferry, taxi, plane, car, and sub-
way, little Peeper was on the last
lap of her journey towards a "per-
fect home" where she'd never have
to encounter another flea.

Four Ladies Vie for St. John Festival Queen Crown
Continued from Page 8
"This is my first pageant and I'm so excited," she
said. "I've been thinking about running for a while
and the community and my family have been asking
me to go ahead and run. So I decided that this year
was the right time."
As Didier has been preparing for the big night,
she was surprised at how much work it takes to be a
"Getting ready for the pageant has taken so much
practice," said Didier. "It's a lot of hard work, but
it's also really fun. You definitely have to put your
all into it."
"To even run for Queen, it takes dedication, cour-
age, self-confidence and a lot of work," Didier said.
Nerves aren't something about which Didier is
"It's a little nerve-wracking, but I'm just really
excited," she said. "I can't wait for the show."
Contestant #3 is the only contestant this year with
pageant experience under her belt. Kerla Fessale
won the St. John Princess crown in 2001 and she's
back going for the Queen crown this year.
A 19-year-old St. Johnian, Fessale just graduated
from the Gifft Hill School. After enjoying her sum-
mer on Love City, Fessale will be heading to Atlanta
Georgia where she'll study business management at
"I want to come back to St. John after I graduate
and open my own business," said Fessale. "I want to
work in teen outreach. I want to work toward keep-
ing the youth off the streets."
"If there were activities and opportunities for
youth, I think we'd have a lot less problems and less
crime here," Fessale said.
As the former St. John Princess steps into the
bigger shoes of a Queen contestant, she is reuniting
with her chaperone Lee Ann Oquendo.
"It's been so much fun working with Lee Ann
again," said Fessale. "She works me really hard, but
it's all worth it. We have a lot of fun."
Fessale decided to run in part to keep the St. John
"I think Festival and the pageants are important
traditions," Fessale said. "I think the St. John youth
need to be more involved with Festival and that's
why I decided to run."
If she wins the crown, Fessale will be a positive
ambassador for St. John.
"If I win, I will represent St. John to the best of
my abilities," said Fessale. "I want to be a role mod-
el for younger girls."
Seventeen-year-old Shari Alfred is contestant #4.
The St. Thomas resident just graduated from Ivan-
na Eudora Kean High School and is heading off to
Pennsylvania in the fall to study what she loves.
"I'm leaving in August to go to Seton Hill Uni-
versity where I'll study journalism and new media,"
said Alfred. "I want to be a broadcast journalist and
a writer and photographer."
"I love photography and I love writing and I just
wanted to find a career where I could do both," Al-
Alfred, who is being chaperoned by Krystal Isaac,
always dreamt about competing in a pageant, she
"Running for Queen is something that I've al-
ways wanted to do and this year when they opened
the competition to girls from St. Thomas, I thought
it was the perfect opportunity to realize my dream,"
said Alfred. "It's been a great a experience al-
Preparing for the St. John Festival Queen show
has taught Alfred some valuable lessons.
"It's a lot of hard work and you need to be mo-
tivated," she said. "You have to be determined and
you have to have your head on. You can't afford any
"Already I've learned that any obstacles that come
my way, I have to find a way to get over them," said
If she wins the crown, the singer and dancer will
represent the whole of the Virgin Islands, she ex-
"I want to serve as an ambassador for the youth
and St. John as a whole and for the entire Virgin
Islands community," said Alfred. "I want to make
