Retired NPS Ranger Brown Leads St. John Festival Parade


By Andrea Milam
St. John Tradewinds
After years of hard work supporting the St. John Festi-
val Committee, retired National Park Service law enforce-
ment ranger Shuler Brown got to sit back and enjoy the
festivities from a different view - the front of the parade.
Brown was honored for his tireless dedication to St.
John Festival by being named the 2009 parade marshal. A
Nevis native who resides on St. Thomas, Brown has been a
member of the St. John Festival Committee for more than
a decade.
"He has helped coordinate the parade every year," said
Festival Committee Chairperson Leona Smith. No%% he's
a member of the subcommittee for coordinating the pa-
rade."
Brown most often helps with shutting down Cruz Bay
roads and directing traffic during the parade, Smith con-
tinued.
"He's been a tremendous help with the traffic," she said.
"He's very instrumental in that."
Brown retired from the NPS, where he worked mainly
on St. John as Senior Protection Specialist, in December
after a 27 year career. He started out as a maintenance
worker on St. John in 1982, eventually transferring to
the VI. National Park's Enforcement Division, where he

worked his way up the ranks, serving as park ranger, su-
pervisory park ranger and chief park ranger. Brown also
served in the V.I. National Guard for 15 years.
He earned a diploma in wildlife and forestry from the
North American School of Conservation in Scranton,
Pennsylvania and an associate's degree in political science,


a bachelor of arts degree in social sciences and a master's
degree in public administration from the University of the
Virgin Islands.
Brown has been married for 30 years to Gwendolyn
Brown, and the couple has five children.
Although he has lived on St. Thomas for the majority of
his life, Brown felt it was important to contribute to Festi-
val on the island he commuted to daily.
"I want to help keep the culture alive, you know," said
Brown. "The festivities on the whole are a good thing to
have for the island. You work all year round so you need to
relax once a year, and it's good for the economy."
"I don't want to see it die out," Brown added.
The Festival Committee selects someone who shows
enthusiasm for Festival, and who gives back to the com-
munity, to lead the Fourth of July parade. Brown fit the bill
perfectly, Smith explained.
"He's a very dedicated and committed individual," she
said. "He's been very dedicated to the Festival Committee
and to helping with the parade."
After his years of hard work, Brown was excited to re-
lax and enjoy the parade.
"I worked with the parade over the years, and now it's
time for me to relax and lead it," said Brown. "I'm going
to sit back and enjoy it."

St. John Tradewinds
The St. John Festival Fourth of
July parade meant something dif-
ferent to each and every person
who lined Cruz Bay's streets to see
the colorful costumes and hear the
pulsating soca music. To some, it
meant starting a new tradition with
family. To others, like Paul and
Marcia Helson, it represented a
homecoming of sorts.
Paul Helson, who worked as hu-
man resources director at Caneel
Bay Resort from 1993-1996, re-
turned to St. John just weeks before
the festivities began to assume his
new position as general manager of
the Pond Bay Club.
"I just love seeing the parade,"
said Paul Helson. "It's such a
unique part of St. John. You can
meet your friends and neighbors
here."
The Helsons were most excited
to see Caneel's troupe, for which
Paul Helson drove the truck during
his tenure as the resort's HR direc-
tor.
For Tom and Nicole Barnhorst,
the parade offered family-friendly
fun for their 11-month-old daugh-
ter, Carson.
"It brings families out," said
Nicole Barnhorst, who watched
the parade with several friends and


their young children. "It's a good,
wholesome parade."
In true Love City fashion, the
parade kicked off later than ex-
pected, around 11:30 a.m. St. John
Administrator and Festival Com-
mittee Chairperson Leona Smith,
who was busy coordinating the

Pennville Honors Long-time Festival Leader James Penn


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
The sounds of steel pan fill-
ing the air, aromas of pates and
chicken legs frying, brightly paint-
ed booths and people of all ages
mingling in the Cruz Bay Customs
parking lot could mean only one
thing - Festival time on St. John.
Residents, visitors and family
members home for the annual St.
John Fourth of July Festival cel-
ebration converged in the heart of
Cruz Bay on Monday, June 29, for
Festival Village opening ceremo-
nies honoring James Penn.
As chairperson of the Festival
and Cultural Organization of St.
John for almost 20 years, Penn
literally turned the island's small
event into the almost month-long
celebration it is today.
"When I took over the St. John
festival it was nothing," said Penn.
"We didn't even have chairs - we
had to go to St. Thomas and rent
them. I bought 1,000 chairs to use
so we wouldn't have to do that
anymore."
"All you see now, we put it to-
gether," Penn said. "I got the radio
to come over here every day and
cover our events. I said, 'James

Penn will pay for it.'"
While not shocked that he was
honored by the Festival Organiza-
tion, the distinction was welcome,
Penn explained.


"I feel good," he said. "I put in
a lot of hard work to get this thing
going. This honor has been a long
time coming."
After Sonia Sprauve sang mov-


ing renditions of both the National
Anthem and the Virgin Islands
March, the Love City Pan Dragons
Youth Steel Orchestra entertained
the crowd with several musical se-

elections.
Presenting their father with a
plaque depicting pictures of the
honoree through the years, Penn's
two daughters spoke about how
important it is to remember com-
munity members who make a dif-
ference.
"Thanks for giving me my flow-
ers while I'm alive," said Penn,
thanking his family and the Festi-
val Organization. "Everything I do
for St. John is not for me - it's for
the people and the community. We
all get together and make St. John
a wonderful place."
Senator at Large Craig
Barshinger wished the crowd a
happy and safe Festival 2009.

On one visit to St. John, the sight
of several students kicking around
a flat soccer ball made Dean Doe-
ling stop in his tracks.
The Nike senior production
artist had been to St. John four
times when he passed the Julius E.
Sprauve School last June and saw
the students playing with the well-
used sports equipment last June.
"On one of my visits to St. John
I was going to get my rental car
and I happened to pass JESS and
there were about 10 kids kicking
an extremely flat and well-used
soccer ball and they were hav-
ing a blast," said Doeling. "First
I thought, 'how cute, that they
can have fun with that.' And then
I thought, 'why is there only one
soccer ball.'"
That scene was the inspiration
for what would become Using
Sport For Social Change (USFSC),
an organization to empower Love
City youth through sports.
"At first I thought, 'let me use
Nike to get these kids some balls,'"
Doeling said.
The Nike artist soon realized
that the needs of St. John sports
went farther and what started out
as a way to get local schools some
new Nike balls has turned into a
venue to effect real change on the
island.
"I realized there was a much
bigger need than just getting the
kids in school some balls," said


"I realized there was a much bigger need
than just getting the kids in school some
balls. That's when I started Using Sport for
Social Change, to give kids the confidence
they need to set personal goals, achieve their
aspirations and create opportunities for them-
selves, their families and their communities."

- Dean Doeling, USFSC founder and Nike senior production artist.


Doeling. "That's when I started
Using Sport for Social Change, to
give kids the confidence they need
to set personal goals, achieve their
aspirations and create opportuni-
ties for themselves, their families
and their communities."
As word of Doeling's initiative
spread, parents and organizations
joined the USFSC effort, he ex-
plained.
"The more people I got into
contact with, the more curiosity I
was drumming up," Doeling said.
"I have business owners, parents,
education officials and the St. John
Community Foundation on board.
We've put together a committee
and hashed out some ideas and I've
learned a lot about the island."
After Doeling started asking
around back at Nike, a flood of
soccer, basketball, football and
softball equipment started cross-
ing his desk.
"I found I had all this equipment
but no way to get it down there,"


said Doeling. "I was able to get a
couple of donations and spent my
own money to send some things
down, but shipping down there is
really expensive. Nike Corporate
donated 130 balls as well as the
cost of shipping."
Through the St. John Commu-
nity Foundation, Doeling was able
to distribute sports equipment to
every school on island.
Doeling also donated 20 soft-
ball gloves to the Ruby Rutnik
Tournament, basketballs for use at
a recent clinic in Pine Peace and he
has more equipment to donate.
"I still have six boxes of sports
balls that I would love to get down
there," said Doeling. "Another
thing I'm doing is hoping to start a
soccer program in the fall which is
in the works right now."
The Nike artist is also plan-
ning a Just Play Day on October
12, which would introduce kids to
sports they may not have been ex-

NOAA Grants $1.5M to Watershed Management


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Officials will soon be stemming the
tide of brown sludge running to the
ocean after heavy rainfalls thanks to
a multi-million dollar grant from the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration.
Under the umbrella of the V.I.
Resource, Conservation and De-
velopment Council, the Coral Bay
Community Council, the Fish Bay
Homeowners Association (FBHA)
and a St. Croix community group were
awarded a total of more than $2.7 mil-
lion from NOAA as part of the Ameri-
can Recovery and Reinvestment Act
of 2009.
The Virgin Islands Watershed Sta-
bilization project was one of 50 proj-
ects chosen by NOAA out of more
than 800 proposals submitted from
across the United States and the ter-
ritories. Under the grant, CBCC will
receive around $1 million, FBHA will
get about $500,000 and a project in St.
Croix's East End Marine Park will be
awarded $1.2 million.

The sight of run-off flowing into Fish Bay, above, will be a
thing of the past thanks to the multi-million dollar grant.


In Coral Bay the funds will be used
to mitigate stormwater runoff in six
sub-watersheds, explained CBCC's
president Sharon Coldren.
"The money will be spent on do-
ing repairs on roadways and drainage
structures in Coral Bay according to
a detailed listing in six different sub-
watersheds," Coldren said.
Although Coldren declined to com-


ment on exactly where in Coral Bay
the work will take place, the grant al-
lows the community to look at drain-
age problems holistically, she ex-
plained.
"One thing this grant allows us to do
is look at drainage problems as drain-
age problems, not as public or private
problems, because water flows across

CBCC Hosting Stormwater
Management Seminar July 8
St. John Tradewinds
The Coral Bay Community Council is hosting a
construction industry seminar Wednesday, July 8, at 12
noon at Sputnik's in Coral Bay.
The seminar will be a "Lunch and Learn" format.
Jim Nadeau and other representatives from Contech
Construction Products, Inc., a national US firm, will
present information on erosion control mats, culverts,
small precast bridges and other earth stabilization prod-
ucts.
Find out what product solutions have been invented
to efficiently control erosion and drainage. This storm-
water management information will be useful to gener-
al contractors, engineers, architects, heavy equipment
operators, and anyone else working in construction in-
terested in improving water quality of the runoff into
the bay after storms - and helping to eliminate the
plumes seen there during rain storms.
This free seminar is presented by the CBCC as a
service under the EPA CARE grant. Participants may
bring their own lunch or purchase Julietta's Roties.
The seminar should last about an hour, so people can
go back to work. Participants who attend four or more
CBCC learning events will receive a certificate. For
more information, call 776-2099.

VINP Field Getting Facelift and Lights


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Sports activities at the V.I. National Park
ballfield soon won't be dependent on clear
skies.
The field, which floods during rains and
includes deteriorating playground equip-
ment, will be upgraded thanks to a partner-
ship between the St. John Community Foun-
dation, VINP and Department of Housing,
Parks and Recreation.
"The ballpark is the property of VINP,
but HPR has a permit for use of the prop-
erty," said HPR Commissioner St. Claire
Williams at a Wednesday morning, July
1, meeting at the St. John Administrator's
Office. "We manage the property and have
certainly tried to maintain it. We've noticed
it needs work and the community has re-
quested that we make improvements at the
field."
Upgrades to the VINP will consist of in-
stalling new fencing, playground equipment
and energy efficient lighting, and draining,
grading and seeding the field, explained
HPR's territorial director for planning and
development Roy Canton.
"Currently, the field isn't properly grad-
ed, doesn't drain and can't be used when
it rains," Canton said. "Some of the play-
ground equipment definitely needs replace-
ment and there is no lighting so the use of
the field is limited to day-time activities
only."
HPR's work is expected to run between
$230,000 and $250,000. VINP officials are
also pitching in on the field improvement
project.
As part of the park's planned North


St. JohnTradewinds News Photo by Jaime Elliott


HPR will partner with VINP, the St. John Community Foundation and
a private company to grade, drain and seed the VINP field, above, and
install energy-efficient lights.


Shore Road paving project, the parking lot
near the field will be included in the scope
of work, explained VINP Superintendent
Mark Hardgrove.
"I'm proud to say that HPR and the com-
munity has worked together on this and the
National Park Service will try to compli-
ment their work," said Hardgrove. "We'll
pave the access road as part of the North
Shore project at a cost of about $400,000."
VINP officials will also upgrade the rest
room facilities, and install solar powered
lights in the back parking lot and around the


VINP 50th Anniversary plaza outside the
Visitors' Center, Hardgrove added.
"Our investment in the project will be
around $500,000," he said.
In addition to the VINP and HPR funds, a
private company is stepping up to the plate
as well. Wharton-Smith, a Florida-based
construction company which is currently
building Pond Bay Club in Estate Choco-
late Hole, has provided technical assistance
and use of its equipment, explained SJCF
executive director Paul Devine.
"Wharton-Smith has taken the lead in


providing plans to date, engineering sur-
veys and they will provide equipment and
labor for the repair, drainage and grading of
the field - all donated," Devine said.
Before work gets under way - which
Canton estimated would take about four
months - a federal special use permit must
be issued to HPR from the National Park
Service, explained Hardgrove.
"The special use permit requires a federal
action, but we'll try to get that expedited,"
he said. "I don't foresee any archaeologi-
cal issues there since the field is a fill area.
Once those permits are issued we should be
able to move forward."
Canton hoped HPR could start putting
out bids for construction as early as the end
of the summer.
"We should have permits in hand by
then, but everything depends on the weather
of course," said Canton.
Once permits are in place, HPR will
schedule a public meeting to get feedback
from residents about the planned improve-
ments to the VINP field.
The upgrades to the VINP field are part of
HPR's overall initiative to improve facilities
across the territory, according to Williams.
"HPR did assessments of all of our facili-
ties across the territory at the beginning of
this administration," Williams said. "We got
a $3 million appropriation to address the re-
pairs and enhancements of facilities. It's not
enough, but it's a start."
"We estimated that we needed $5.4 mil-
lion, but with the $3 million, that is $1.5
million for each district," said the HPR
Commissioner.

Long-time Resident Alan Smith


Sworn In as Magistrate Judge


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Long-time St. John resident Alan Smith was sworn
in as a Magistrate Judge for the VI. Superior Court
system on Tuesday, June 30, in a historic ceremony at
the Alexander Farrelly Justice Center.
The Magistrate Division was established in 2007
and last week's appointees were the first implantation
of the division. Along with Smith, Kathleen Mackay
was sworn in for the St. Thomas/St. John district and
Jessica Gallivan and Miguel Camacho were sworn in
for the St. Croix division.
Smith, a former Chief Public Defender and First
Assistant Attorney General and Commissioner of
Planning and Natural Resources, will serve at least a
four-year term as Magistrate Judge before he's up for
reappointment. Smith's wife Magda was at this side
during the ceremony.
The Magistrate Division was established to help
the V.I. Superior Court in providing efficient and
timely resolution of disputes.

Not Just for Adults Anymore, St. John Brewers Introduces Bottled Root Beer


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
After four years of crafting quality alcoholic beers and
distributing at a growing number of locations, St. John
Brewers is whipping up something for non-imbibers and
those not old enough for their adult beverages.
St. John Brewers' root beer is now available in bottles at
retail venues and restaurants across the island.
Kevin Chipman and Chirag "Cheech" Vyas have actually
been crafting small batches of sodas and serving them on
tap at their Mongoose Junction Tap Room for more than a
year.
"In addition to root beer, we also make a ginger beer
and our own energy drink that we call Green Flash," said
Chipman. "The root beer is the most popular soda that we
have and we played around with the recipe until we got it
down."
The hours of tweaking their recipe shows. St. John Brew-
ers' root beer is made with pure cane sugar - no high fruc-
tose corn syrup here - and a variety of natural flavors, from
wintergreen to vanilla, which combine to create a bright
taste that lingers on the palate.
"We spent quite a few down hours tasting different batch-
es until we had the recipe where we wanted it," said Vyas.
"We've gotten a lot of requests from people to bottle the
root beer. People were saying their kids would love it."
Shipyard Brewing Company in Portland, Maine, contract
brews all St. John Brewers' beers and the same goes for
their root beer. But just because Chipman and Vyas aren't
brewing the batches themselves, the root beer - just like
their popular Island Summer Ale and Mango Pale Ale - is
still very much their own creation.
"We designed the label and its local artwork and Ship-
yard follows our recipe exactly," said Vyas.
When the two brewers started out four years ago, they
were distributing cases of their beer from the back of their
own truck. Since then, West Indies Corporation has picked
up their products and now distributes St. John Brewers'
ales on all three main U.S. Virgin Islands. Their beer is also
available in New Jersey, Florida, Rhode Island, Massachu-


St. John Brewers' bottled root beer hit shelves
across St. John in recent weeks.

setts, Nebraska and California from various distributors.
Since launching their root beer bottles recently, however,
the two are back to familiar territory - their pick-up truck.
"We're self-distributing," said Vyas. "We're already in a
lot of places in Cruz Bay right now and we'll get out to
Coral Bay soon."
"It's nice though, because it's important to get out and
meet our customers," said Chipman. "They know the root
beer is coming from us."
The two have been busy getting ready for St. John Festi-
val - they had a brightly decorated float in the July Fourth
Parade and handed out samples of root beer and adult beers
- and rolling out a new seasonal bottled brew stateside.
Their Spring and Summer offering, Liquid Sunshine Bel-
gian Style Ale, is available on tap at the Tap Room and in


bottles stateside.
"It took a little longer to get the bottles going than we
thought," said Vyas. "So we're distributing the bottles in the
states now and we'll have it down here next year."
The brewers aren't about to rest on their laurels either.
Vyas and Chipman are constantly conjuring up new brews
to try to out and are currently working on an India Pale Ale,
called Island Hoppin'.
"We've been brewing it at the Tap Room and we've al-
most finalized the recipe," said Chipman.
The two are still working on artwork for the label and
federal requirements for the IPA, but expect to be able to
launch Island Hoppin' in bottles in the future.
All that work has kept the brewers busy, so if St. John
Brewers' root beer isn't available at a certain restaurant or
retail outlet, ask for it. And keep an eye out for the root beer
on dessert menus - it's already available for a delicious
float at I Scream ice cream shops.
A popular concoction at the Tap Room is the R and R,
root beer and rum. The St. John Brewers use Cruzan Dark to
mix with the root beer and it's definitely a treat. Samples of
St. John Brewers' root beer and R and R will be available at
Starfish Gourmet on Saturday, July 18, from noon to 3 p.m.
Chipman and Vyas are planning to throw some summer
keg parties on the back deck of the Tap Room, which always
has a variety of tasty brews on tap.
"We've really enjoyed introducing people to different
beers at the Tap Room," said Chipman.
"People who came in and at first would only order the
lightest beer we had are now trying out some darker beers,"
said Vyas. "It's fun to see."
For non-beer drinkers, the Tap Room also has fruit in-
fused vodkas. Try a drink with pineapple, mango or pear
vanilla infused vodka, which mix well with St. John Brew-
ers' ginger beer.
Check out the website stjohnbrewers.com to keep up to
date on the latest St. John Brewers happenings and offerings
at the Tap Room. And for those who just can't get enough,
St. John Brewers is also on Facebook and Twitter. For more

You May Be Entitled to Money from a Class Action Settlement


A settlement has been proposed in a class action
lawsuit alleging that TriCor manufacturers engaged in
anticompetitive conduct regarding fenofibrate drugs.
Fenofibrate drugs are used to treat high cholesterol
and high triglyceride levels in patients at risk of
cardiovascular disease.
No question is raised about the safety or :tt,', n''t 'S of
TriCor or other fenofibrate drugs.
Defendants have denied any wrongdoing and liability
but have agreed to the proposed settlement to resolve the
controversy and to avoid the cost and expense of further
litigation. The lawsuit, In re TriCor Indirect Purchaser

You may have important legal rights under this
settlement, some of which you must act on by

members, employees, plan participants and beneficiaries
or insureds, between April 9, 2002 and May 8, 2009.
These products include TriCor, Lofibra, Antara, Triglide,
and any available generic versions of these drugs.
What does the settlement provide?
The settlement provides $65.7 million to pay to
class members. It will be distributed according to the


settlement. Any award for attorneys' fees, expenses,
and notice and administration costs will be deducted
from this amount.
What are my legal rights?

must be postmarked by September 15, 2009.
You will be bound by the terms of the settlement and
you give up the right to sue at your own expense.

the settlement terms and you will receive payment
from the settlement fund (if you also file a claim).
Objections and comments must be postmarked by
September 15, 2009 and they will be considered
at a Fairness Hearing on October 9, 2009.
If you want to appear at the settlement hearing,
you must send in a written request for appearance
postmarked by September 25,2009.
* Exclude yourself and keep your right to sue at
your own expense. Requests for exclusion must be
postmarked by September 15,2009.
* Do nothing. You remain in the class and
give up your right to sue at your own expense.

Fourth of July Parade Brings People Together


St. John Iradewinds News Ploto by ustin Uoran


A member of the Westin Resort St. John troupe.


Continued from Page 3
rade marshal Shuler Brown, fol-
lowed by Festival royalty, includ-
ing Miss St. John Lea Scott and St.
John Princess Daniela Joseph.
"I'm excited for a lot of cultural
action," said Scott. "St. John is al-
ways very cultural when it comes
to the costumes."
Also making appearances were
the AARP's St. John Chapter
and the Love City Leapers, who
wowed the crowd with their jump
rope performances.
This year's parade saw more
than 40 entries from all three Vir-
gin Islands, and even one from the
states - Paula's School of Baton
from Winchester, Tennessee.
"Some of the costumes were the
best I'd ever seen," said Senator at
Large Craig Barshinger. "I'm im-
pressed at how many new groups
are doing it, just for the joy of be-
ing in the parade."
The Middle Age Majorettes
paraded down Cruz Bay streets in


their traditional t-shirts, decorated
this year with rainbow tie-dyed
bathing suits for their theme, "Do
Wah Ditty in Love City."
Chester "Mighty Groover" Bra-
dy made a colorful appearance as a
one-man entry. Brady pushed a cart
decorated with bright fruit plates,
adorned with a sign reading, "A
Cultural Day in Dey Canefield. A
Tribute to Cane Cutters."
Gifft Hill School teachers and
students alike paid tribute to Mi-
chael Jackson, who died recently,
as they boogied down the street to
the sounds of his music.
The crowd of hundreds was
kept hydrated as the parade slowly
wound through Cruz Bay thanks to
Starfish Market, which provided
free water, and St. John Brewers,
which handed out samples of their
beers.
The Westin Resort's massive
troupe masqueraded as spiders of
all different colors in "A Tribute to
Anansi."


The festivities culminated later
that evening, as residents and visi-
tors crowded Cruz Bay Beach and
the Battery to watch a lively fire-
works display, launched from a
barge anchored in Cruz Bay har-
bor.
"The parade was great and very
lively," said Cecile deJongh. "I
loved Cool Sessions' troupe. It's
nice to see family and friends, and
everybody's in a great mood."
Governor John deJongh min-
gled with party-goers at the Bat-
tery, where guests enjoyed an open
bar and appetizers, and the perfect
spot for viewing the fireworks - the
Battery's grassy lawn.
"I thought the parade had great
variety, and I especially enjoy
watching the young kids," said the
governor. "What makes this parade
special is that people come from all
the islands and the U.S. It's just a
great opportunity to be with peo-
ple, and it's an important part of
our culture and history."

The picture of local students, at
left, which accompanied the article
"IEK Students Display Talent at
Bajo el Sol" worried one reader.
The V.I. hand sign, lower far left,
is an often-used way of displaying
Virgin Islands' pride. The hand sign
displays a "V" and "I".


Students Show Potential Gang Signs


Dear Editor,
I am a state-side subscriber to Tradewinds. I no-
ticed in your June 22-28 issue that a student in the
"IEK Students Display Talent at Bajo el Sol" picture
appears to be flashing some sort of sign. This is the
type of sign associated with gang members.
It would be in your interest to edit pictures care-
fully before publishing them. I suggest that the school
administrator questions this student relative to his in-
tentions with the sign. I may be incorrect in this case,
however, that is typical gang behavoir.
I deal with gang members on a daily basis as a
school administrator in New Jersey. I am also aware
that St. John is experiencing a growing issue with


crime, much of which is associated with gangs. I saw
graffiti near Pine Peace Market several years ago and
knew that gangs were beginning to emerge there. It is
critical that gangs be exposed and dealt with by law
enforcement.
I am a yearly visitor to St. John and write this let-
ter with the best of intentions. I have seen the damage
that gangs can inflict upon a community and don't
wish to see the residents of St. John fall victim to
gang behavior.
Sincerely,
Paul Santoro, New Jersey

Editor,
Everybody knows that there is a world-wide ap-
peal to lower emissions, originating from burning
fossil fuels, and there are many propositions how to
do it - by lowering carbon dioxide and other pollut-
ants, by replacing the burning of fossil fuels, mostly
oil by non-polluting energies.
Unfortunately, the energy production on our islands
is taking the opposite trend - increased fossil fuel
burning and minimal non-polluting energy sources.
Yesterday I read that WAPA is borrowing $800
million to build more energy plants, obviously oil-
burning with minimal amount of non-polluting sub-
stitute energy. At the same time, I searched Google
and I found that we have much a better and cheaper
solution to increase our energy supplies.
One mini-nuclear plant costs about $25 million
and produces about the amount WAPA needs for one
island, 40 megawatts. Therefore, we need $50 mil-
lion for two plants against the proposed $800 million
WAPA wants for thermal plants.
These mini-nukes do not produce any harmful gas-
es, are automatic, sealed and do not need maintenance
and fuel for 10 years, according to Google. They pro-
duce electricity for three to five cents a kilowatt. They


are small, 6 x 6 x 20 feet, are underground and need
only one acre of space.
Because of their small size, they canbe put on some
small uninhabited island to pacify people who are still
afraid of radioactivity. There are two American (Hy-
perion) companies and one Japanese (Toshiba) com-
pany offering these plants and some of them are on
the market already this year, according to Google.
I do not understand how these offers could escape
the attention of our directors of WAPA. They are un-
believably good as far as price, environmental aspects
and automatic arrangement. I strongly believe that
WAPA should abandon its plans for thermal plants
and order just two small mini-nukes saving $750 mil-
lion in the process.
The customers would certainly appreciate a 50 per-
cent discount on new electricity. It would also put us at
a great advantage with the new carbon tax (disguised
as carbon credits) because these plants do not spit out
any carbon. If we continue with thermal plants, we
are exposed to probably enormous increases in the
price of oil in the future (they could reach about $300
per barrel) and a much greater budget deficit.

deJongh's Summer Reading Challenge.

books. Students who read 10 books or more are eligible for a spe-
cial celebration with the governor.
On St. John the center is the Julius Sprauve Elementary School,

V.I. Road Striping To Start This Month


St. John Tradewinds
Two new striping machines
for use on St. Croix and in the
St. Thomas/St. John districts
have arrived in the territory
and will be put to use shortly,
according to Department of
Public Works Commissioner
Darryl Smalls.
The machines have been
long awaited and DPW staff
will be fully trained on the op-
eration and maintenance of the
new machines, Smalls added.


"As soon as the training
by the factory representatives
is completed, the residents of
our territory will soon see the
department out in full force
striping our roads," he said.
"It is anticipated that residents
will see striping of roads com-
mencing during the month of
July."
DPW will advise the motor-
ing public in advance of the
areas where the striping will
commence.

JFLI Pig Roast, Fish Fry at Sputniks July 11
St. John Tradewinds
The John's Folly Learning Institute is hosting an old-fashioned St.
John pig roast and fish fry on Saturday, July 11, from noon to midnight
at Sputnik's in Coral Bay.
The event will raise funds for students to travel to the 75th Anniver-
sary festivities of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The group
is hoping to raise $10,000 to cover the cost of the trip for up to 10 stu-
dents.



Using Sport for Social Change

perienced yet, explained Doe-
ling.
"There would be individual
events in the morning and team
events in the afternoon," he
said. "We're going to have dif-
ferent stations and the kids will
have to go through all of the
stations. So they'll get to expe-
rience each sport."
Doeling is looking for vol-
unteers and athletes to help out
for the Just Play Day as well as
businesses to help ensure that
the day is a success.
"We would like to get busi-
nesses to donate anything from
chairs to whistles to anything
that can help us put on a more
successful event," Doeling said.
"We're working on getting T-
shirts for volunteers and kids
and we'll have prizes for all the
participants as well."
While USFSC is still in its
initial stages, Doeling has set


up a website which has attracted
a lot of publicity, he explained.
"After about six months, I
started to see some amazing re-
sults trickle in," said Doeling.
"I'm getting a lot of people
who come upon my website
who are huge fans of St. John
and many of them have offered
their services."
T\\ o teenage girls in Dela-
ware said they love St. John
and wanted to know what they
could do to give back to the
community that has given so
much to them," he said. "They
volunteered to do two bake
sales and donated the funds to
get sports balls shipped to St.
John."
All donations to USFSC are
used to ship sports equipment
to St. John, Doeling added. For
more information check out the
website usingsportforsocial-
change.com or contact Doeling
at Nike Inc. at 503-532-6756.

"Have fun and enjoy our hospital-
ity. Remember to bring your danc-
ing shoes, but to leave anything
dangerous at home."
"And if you're going to be
drinking, don't drive," Barshinger
reminded the crowd.
In her first St. John Village
Opening ceremony in years, Del-
egate to Congress Donna Chris-
tensen congratulated Penn and ex-
pressed her pleasure at being at the
festivities.
"I'm usually in D.C. still at this
time, so it's really fun to be here
tonight," said Christensen. "It's a
nice place to relax with the warm


community here. I love coming to
St. John."
"There is a great spirit of fel-
lowship and love here tonight and
a lot of that has to do with Mr.
Penn," Christensen said. "Let this
celebration be all about love in
Love City."
Christensen presented Penn
with a Congressional Certificate in
recognition of his honor.
Lieutenant Governor Gregory
Francis invited the crowd to get
close to the stage.
"This is your village, come for-
ward," said Francis. "It's all about
having a good time. If someone
bumps you, say, 'Let's bump to-
gether.'"


Pennville officially sprang to
life around 8:30 p.m. when Penn,
along with St. John Festival Queen
Lea Scott, St. John Princess Dan-
iela Joseph and St. John Prince
Davon Alfred, cut the ceremonial
ribbon opening Festival Village
2009.
A huge crowd danced to the
73rd Army Band and enjoyed
scrumptious eats and cool treats
from local chefs at the many
booths.
"I love opening night of Vil-
lage," said Toni Lacer. "You've
just got to be here."
"I love Festival and I'm happy
to be home to enjoy it," said Alvis
Christian.

$1.5 Million to St. John Watershed Management


Continued from Page 7
both public and private land," said
Coldren. "We'll look at each sub-
watershed and we'll look for the
cooperation of all parties along the
way."
The NOAA grant requires work
to be done on a timely basis and
will depend on the cooperation of
government agencies and home
owners, Coldren added.
"We'll be working very quickly
to get it all together and we will be
publicizing the projects," she said.
"This will all take place over the
next year and a half and will de-
pend upon the cooperation of the
homeowners and land owners and
groups responsible for individual
roads as well as various govern-
ment agencies."
"To make this happen, it will
take cooperation," said Coldren.
"We're committed to showing
that we can make this happen on
a timely basis and the government
has said they will help us."
CBCC hosted a public forum
several months ago for homeown-
ers in the Coral Bay area to share
their drainage problems. That
meeting netted about 35 proposals
in the area but people who didn't
attend the gathering can still take
part in the watershed management
project, Coldren explained.
"It's never too late to get in-
volved," she said. "We know we
only saw the tip of the iceberg in
our first call out and we expect
more homeowners to come for-
ward and join the ones who have
already made commitments."
The NOAA grant means ad-
dressing problems in the Coral
Bay watershed won't be depen-
dent on securing funds, Coldren
explained.
"This means that we should be


able to start doing some very seri-
ous repairs," she said. "We don't
have the money to do it, shouldn't
be the first excuse anymore. We
have the money, now we need the
cooperation."
In Fish Bay, FBHA president
Terry Pishko, who has been aggres-
sively tackling storm water woes
for more than five years, already
has permits from the Department
of Planning and Natural Resources
for several projects.
"We've been working on this
on and off since about 2002 and
we went through a process with
DPNR and developed a watershed
plan and a road stabilization plan,"
said Pishko. "As a community,
we're ready - we're shovel ready.
We have a permit and we've iden-
tified projects."
"A lot of the projects involve
a combination of road paving and
swale construction to direct water
to the guts," Pishko said. "Some
culverts in the area are in poor
shape and need to be replaced.
We're also trying to put some con-
crete on the road to keep it from
eroding and to keep the sediment
out of the bay."
When Pishko took over as pres-
ident of FBHA about seven years
ago, many of the roads in the area
were unpaved and suffered serious
erosion, she explained.
"We got involved with DPNR
and worked together to come up
with a plan," Pishko said. "We
worked in phases, initially target-
ing hot-spots that we identified.
We've pretty much handled those
areas and now we're at a point
where we have other spots that
need to be worked on."
Except for one small grant ob-
tained by the homeowners asso-
ciation years ago, the NOAA funds


signify the first major funding the
group has been awarded, Pishko
added.
"When you think about how
long it would take for our $500
yearly dues to add up to the amount
we've gotten from NOAA, it's
amazing," she said. "I'm thrilled.
It's terrific."
Coming from the ARRA Act of
2009, the grants are also intended
to create jobs, and officials expect
the St. John projects to net about 26
new employment opportunities.
Local contractors will bid on
paving, culvert and swale repair
and installation jobs in both wa-
tershed areas and project managers
will be hired as well. The focus is
also on creating jobs that restore
the environment.
"These Recovery Act projects
will put Americans to work while
restoring our coasts and combating
climate change," said Commerce
Secretary Gary Locke in a pre-
pared statement. "They reflect our
investment in sound science and
commitment to help strengthen lo-
cal economies."
While stimulating the local
economy, the local ecology is due
to get a major boost as well.
"We should be able to make
Coral Bay more beautiful with
more sea grass beds for turtles and
have a more beautiful land envi-
ronment," said Coldren. "We won't
have the brown sludge anymore."
"This will have a huge impact
on the amount of runoff going
into Fish Bay," said Pishko. "We
should definitely see results from
this project."

The department has plans to im-
prove the basketball court at Pine
Peace as well, Williams added.
"We've installed energy effi-
cient lighting and we're moving
next to install a French drain and
to resurface the court," he said.
"We'll also install new backboards
and fencing."
HPR has already installed new
lights and a new electrical system


at Winston Wells ball field and
will also be improving the land-
scaping and fencing in the area,
Canton explained.
A five acre government owned
parcel of land in Estate Carolina in
Coral Bay could possibly be used
for a tennis court or basketball
court, Canton added.
"We had people at one time
come forward with plans to de-
velop the site for recreational


uses, but the plans didn't reflect
the topography of the area," said
Canton.
Since then, however, the land
has been used as a dump for fill
which has changed the topogra-
phy, Canton added.
"We can't put anything major
there, but we could possible install
a basketball court or tennis court,"
said HPR's territorial director for
planning and development.

2 St. John Tradewinds, July 6-12, 2009By Andrea Milam St. John Tradewinds After years of hard work supporting the St. John Festival Committee, retired National Park Service law enforcement ranger Shuler Brown got to sit back and enjoy the festivities from a different view — the front of the parade. Brown was honored for his tireless dedication to St. John Festival by being named the 2009 parade marshal. A Nevis native who resides on St. Thomas, Brown has been a member of the St. John Festival Committee for more than a decade. “He has helped coordinate the parade every year,” said Festival Committee Chairperson Leona Smith. “Now he’s a member of the subcommittee for coordinating the parade.” Brown most often helps with shutting down Cruz Bay tinued. “He’s very instrumental in that.” Brown retired from the NPS, where he worked mainly on St. John as Senior Protection Specialist, in December after a 27 year career. He started out as a maintenance worker on St. John in 1982, eventually transferring to the V.I. National Park’s Enforcement Division, where he worked his way up the ranks, serving as park ranger, supervisory park ranger and chief park ranger. Brown also served in the V.I. National Guard for 15 years. He earned a diploma in wildlife and forestry from the North American School of Conservation in Scranton, Pennsylvania and an associate’s degree in political science, a bachelor of arts degree in social sciences and a master’s degree in public administration from the University of the Virgin Islands. Brown has been married for 30 years to Gwendolyn Although he has lived on St. Thomas for the majority of his life, Brown felt it was important to contribute to Festival on the island he commuted to daily. “I want to help keep the culture alive, you know,” said Brown. “The festivities on the whole are a good thing to have for the island. You work all year round so you need to relax once a year, and it’s good for the economy.” “I don’t want to see it die out,” Brown added. The Festival Committee selects someone who shows enthusiasm for Festival, and who gives back to the comperfectly, Smith explained. “He’s a very dedicated and committed individual,” she said. “He’s been very dedicated to the Festival Committee and to helping with the parade.” After his years of hard work, Brown was excited to relax and enjoy the parade. “I worked with the parade over the years, and now it’s time for me to relax and lead it,” said Brown. “I’m going to sit back and enjoy it.” St. John Tradewinds News Photos by Tom oatSt. John Festival Princess Daniela Joseph and Prince Davon Alfred.

By Andrea Milam St. John Tradewinds The St. John Festival Fourth of July parade meant something different to each and every person who lined Cruz Bay’s streets to see the colorful costumes and hear the pulsating soca music. To some, it meant starting a new tradition with family. To others, like Paul and Marcia Helson, it represented a homecoming of sorts. Paul Helson, who worked as human resources director at Caneel Bay Resort from 1993-1996, returned to St. John just weeks before the festivities began to assume his new position as general manager of the Pond Bay Club. “I just love seeing the parade,” said Paul Helson. “It’s such a unique part of St. John. You can meet your friends and neighbors here.” The Helsons were most excited to see Caneel’s troupe, for which Paul Helson drove the truck during his tenure as the resort’s HR director. For Tom and Nicole Barnhorst, the parade offered family-friendly fun for their 11-month-old daughter, Carson. “It brings families out,” said Nicole Barnhorst, who watched the parade with several friends and their young children. “It’s a good, wholesome parade.” In true Love City fashion, the parade kicked off later than expected, around 11:30 a.m. St. John Administrator and Festival Committee Chairperson Leona Smith, who was busy coordinating the start of the parade, was anxious for the show to begin. “We’re gonna have a big parade,” said Smith. “There’s a lot of colorful entries, and nice music. It’s our last lap for Festival.” The procession was led by paSt. John Tradewinds, July 6-12, 2009 3 Thursday, July 9th INDEXBusiness Directory .............20 Church Schedules ..............20 St. John Tradewinds News Photo by Tom oatSt. John Festival Queen Lea Scott.Fourth of July Parade Brings People Together from All Islands and Beyond 2009 R AIN DATAat Trunk BayJune RainfallAverage June Rainfall Total YTD RainfallAverage YTD Rainfall Tradewinds News Photo by Justin DoranA majorette.Tradewinds News Photo by Justin DoranThe DiBlasi family.

Sponsored by Rotary Club St. John and the St. John Community Foundation, the annual Children’s Village ran nightly from June 29 through July 4 from 6 to 9 p.m. A team of volunteers ran a number of exciting games as eager children crowded around waiting for their turn. In addition to games of skill, the children also enjoyed face painting, strong man swinging and moonwalk jumping.

By Jaime Elliott St. John Tradewinds ing the air, aromas of pates and chicken legs frying, brightly paint ed booths and people of all ages mingling in the Cruz Bay Customs parking lot could mean only one thing — Festival time on St. John. Residents, visitors and family members home for the annual St. John Fourth of July Festival cel ebration converged in the heart of Cruz Bay on Monday, June 29, for Festival Village opening ceremo nies honoring James Penn. As chairperson of the Festival and Cultural Organization of St. John for almost 20 years, Penn literally turned the island’s small event into the almost month-long celebration it is today. “When I took over the St. John festival it was nothing,” said Penn. “We didn’t even have chairs — we had to go to St. Thomas and rent them. I bought 1,000 chairs to use so we wouldn’t have to do that anymore.” “All you see now, we put it together,” Penn said. “I got the radio to come over here every day and cover our events. I said, ‘James Penn will pay for it.’” While not shocked that he was honored by the Festival Organiza tion, the distinction was welcome, Penn explained. “I feel good,” he said. “I put in a lot of hard work to get this thing going. This honor has been a long time coming.” After Sonia Sprauve sang moving renditions of both the National Anthem and the Virgin Islands March, the Love City Pan Dragons Youth Steel Orchestra entertained the crowd with several musical selections. Presenting their father with a plaque depicting pictures of the honoree through the years, Penn’s two daughters spoke about how important it is to remember community members who make a difference. ers while I’m alive,” said Penn, thanking his family and the Festival Organization. “Everything I do for St. John is not for me — it’s for the people and the community. We all get together and make St. John a wonderful place.” Senator at Large Craig Barshinger wished the crowd a happy and safe Festival 2009. “It’s a pleasure to kick back and St. John Tradewinds, July 6-12, 2009 5 WR-FitnessClub TW 6.09.indd 1 6/10/09 12:42:29 PM Pennville Honors Long-time Festival Leader James Penn St. John Tradewinds News Photo by Justin Doran (L to R) St. John Royalty Princess Daniela Joseph, Queen Lea Scott, Prince Davon Continued on Page 16“I feel good.

By Jaime Elliott St. John Tradewinds On one visit to St. John, the sight of several students kicking around ling stop in his tracks. The Nike senior production artist had been to St. John four times when he passed the Julius E. Sprauve School last June and saw the students playing with the wellused sports equipment last June. “On one of my visits to St. John I was going to get my rental car and I happened to pass JESS and there were about 10 kids kicking soccer ball and they were having a blast,” said Doeling. “First I thought, ‘how cute, that they can have fun with that.’ And then I thought, ‘why is there only one soccer ball.’” That scene was the inspiration for what would become Using Sport For Social Change (USFSC), an organization to empower Love City youth through sports. Nike to get these kids some balls,’” Doeling said. The Nike artist soon realized that the needs of St. John sports went farther and what started out as a way to get local schools some new Nike balls has turned into a venue to effect real change on the island. “I realized there was a much bigger need than just getting the kids in school some balls,” said Doeling. “That’s when I started Using Sport for Social Change, to to set personal goals, achieve their aspirations and create opportunities for themselves, their families and their communities.” As word of Doeling’s initiative spread, parents and organizations joined the USFSC effort, he explained. “The more people I got into contact with, the more curiosity I was drumming up,” Doeling said. “I have business owners, parents, Community Foundation on board. We’ve put together a committee and hashed out some ideas and I’ve learned a lot about the island.” After Doeling started asking soccer, basketball, football and softball equipment started crossing his desk. “I found I had all this equipment but no way to get it down there,” said Doeling. “I was able to get a couple of donations and spent my own money to send some things down, but shipping down there is really expensive. Nike Corporate donated 130 balls as well as the cost of shipping.” Through the St. John Community Foundation, Doeling was able to distribute sports equipment to every school on island. Doeling also donated 20 softball gloves to the Ruby Rutnik Tournament, basketballs for use at a recent clinic in Pine Peace and he has more equipment to donate. “I still have six boxes of sports balls that I would love to get down there,” said Doeling. “Another thing I’m doing is hoping to start a soccer program in the fall which is in the works right now.” The Nike artist is also planning a Just Play Day on October 12, which would introduce kids to sports they may not have been ex-6 St. John Tradewinds, July 6-12, 2009 “I realized there was a much bigger need than just getting the kids in school some balls.

Under the umbrella of the V.I. Resource, Conservation and Development Council, the Coral Bay Community Council, the Fish Bay Homeowners Association (FBHA) and a St. Croix community group were awarded a total of more than $2.7 million from NOAA as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The Virgin Islands Watershed Stabilization project was one of 50 projects chosen by NOAA out of more than 800 proposals submitted from across the United States and the ter ritories. Under the grant, CBCC will receive around $1 million, FBHA will get about $500,000 and a project in St. Croix’s East End Marine Park will be awarded $1.2 million. In Coral Bay the funds will be used to mitigate stormwater runoff in six sub-watersheds, explained CBCC’s president Sharon Coldren. “The money will be spent on doing repairs on roadways and drainage structures in Coral Bay according to a detailed listing in six different subwatersheds,” Coldren said. Although Coldren declined to comment on exactly where in Coral Bay the work will take place, the grant allows the community to look at drainage problems holistically, she explained. “One thing this grant allows us to do is look at drainage problems as drainage problems, not as public or private St. John Tradewinds, July 6-12, 2009 7 Waterfront Bistro Friday & Saturday 8:30 to 11 PM OPEN EVERY DAY!Sunday, 4PM 12AM Monday through Thursday, 12PM 12AM Friday & Saturday, 12PM 1AM Where the Winners Play!

By Jaime Elliott St. John Tradewinds After four years of crafting quality alcoholic beers and distributing at a growing number of locations, St. John Brewers is whipping up something for non-imbibers and those not old enough for their adult beverages. St. John Brewers’ root beer is now available in bottles at retail venues and restaurants across the island. Kevin Chipman and Chirag “Cheech” Vyas have actually been crafting small batches of sodas and serving them on tap at their Mongoose Junction Tap Room for more than a year. “In addition to root beer, we also make a ginger beer and our own energy drink that we call Green Flash,” said Chipman. “The root beer is the most popular soda that we have and we played around with the recipe until we got it down.” The hours of tweaking their recipe shows. St. John Brewers’ root beer is made with pure cane sugar — no high frucwintergreen to vanilla, which combine to create a bright taste that lingers on the palate. “We spent quite a few down hours tasting different batch es until we had the recipe where we wanted it,” said Vyas. “We’ve gotten a lot of requests from people to bottle the root beer. People were saying their kids would love it.” Shipyard Brewing Company in Portland, Maine, contract brews all St. John Brewers’ beers and the same goes for their root beer. But just because Chipman and Vyas aren’t brewing the batches themselves, the root beer — just like their popular Island Summer Ale and Mango Pale Ale — is still very much their own creation. “We designed the label and its local artwork and Shipyard follows our recipe exactly,” said Vyas. When the two brewers started out four years ago, they were distributing cases of their beer from the back of their own truck. Since then, West Indies Corporation has picked up their products and now distributes St. John Brewers’ ales on all three main U.S. Virgin Islands. Their beer is also available in New Jersey, Florida, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Nebraska and California from various distributors. Since launching their root beer bottles recently, however, the two are back to familiar territory — their pick-up truck. “We’re self-distributing,” said Vyas. “We’re already in a lot of places in Cruz Bay right now and we’ll get out to Coral Bay soon.” “It’s nice though, because it’s important to get out and meet our customers,” said Chipman. “They know the root beer is coming from us.” The two have been busy getting ready for St. John FestiParade and handed out samples of root beer and adult beers — and rolling out a new seasonal bottled brew stateside. Their Spring and Summer offering, Liquid Sunshine Belgian Style Ale, is available on tap at the Tap Room and in bottles stateside. “It took a little longer to get the bottles going than we thought,” said Vyas. “So we’re distributing the bottles in the states now and we’ll have it down here next year.” The brewers aren’t about to rest on their laurels either. Vyas and Chipman are constantly conjuring up new brews to try to out and are currently working on an India Pale Ale, called Island Hoppin’. “We’ve been brewing it at the Tap Room and we’ve alThe two are still working on artwork for the label and federal requirements for the IPA, but expect to be able to launch Island Hoppin’ in bottles in the future. All that work has kept the brewers busy, so if St. John Brewers’ root beer isn’t available at a certain restaurant or retail outlet, ask for it. And keep an eye out for the root beer on dessert menus — it’s already available for a delicious A popular concoction at the Tap Room is the R and R, root beer and rum. The St. John Brewers use Cruzan Dark to St. John Brewers’ root beer and R and R will be available at Chipman and Vyas are planning to throw some summer keg parties on the back deck of the Tap Room, which always has a variety of tasty brews on tap. “We’ve really enjoyed introducing people to different beers at the Tap Room,” said Chipman. lightest beer we had are now trying out some darker beers,” said Vyas. “It’s fun to see.” For non-beer drinkers, the Tap Room also has fruit infused vodkas. Try a drink with pineapple, mango or pear vanilla infused vodka, which mix well with St. John Brewers’ ginger beer. Check out the website stjohnbrewers.com to keep up to date on the latest St. John Brewers happenings and offerings at the Tap Room.

rade marshal Shuler Brown, followed by Festival royalty, including Miss St. John Lea Scott and St. John Princess Daniela Joseph. “I’m excited for a lot of cultural action,” said Scott. “St. John is always very cultural when it comes to the costumes.” Also making appearances were the AARP’s St. John Chapter and the Love City Leapers, who wowed the crowd with their jump rope performances. This year’s parade saw more than 40 entries from all three Vir gin Islands, and even one from the states – Paula’s School of Baton from Winchester, Tennessee. “Some of the costumes were the best I’d ever seen,” said Senator at Large Craig Barshinger. “I’m impressed at how many new groups are doing it, just for the joy of being in the parade.” The Middle Age Majorettes paraded down Cruz Bay streets in their traditional t-shirts, decorated this year with rainbow tie-dyed bathing suits for their theme, “Do Wah Ditty in Love City.” Chester “Mighty Groover” Brady made a colorful appearance as a one-man entry. Brady pushed a cart decorated with bright fruit plates, adorned with a sign reading, “A Tribute to Cane Cutters.” Gifft Hill School teachers and students alike paid tribute to Michael Jackson, who died recently, as they boogied down the street to the sounds of his music. The crowd of hundreds was kept hydrated as the parade slowly wound through Cruz Bay thanks to free water, and St. John Brewers, which handed out samples of their beers. The Westin Resort’s massive troupe masqueraded as spiders of all different colors in “A Tribute to Anansi.” The festivities culminated later that evening, as residents and visitors crowded Cruz Bay Beach and works display, launched from a barge anchored in Cruz Bay har bor. “The parade was great and very lively,” said Cecile deJongh. “I loved Cool Sessions’ troupe. It’s nice to see family and friends, and everybody’s in a great mood.” Governor John deJongh mingled with party-goers at the Battery, where guests enjoyed an open bar and appetizers, and the perfect Battery’s grassy lawn. “I thought the parade had great variety, and I especially enjoy watching the young kids,” said the governor. “What makes this parade special is that people come from all the islands and the U.S. It’s just a great opportunity to be with people, and it’s an important part of our culture and history.” 12 St. John Tradewinds, July 6-12, 2009 Continued from Page 3Fourth of July Parade Brings People Together St. John Tradewinds News Photo by Justin Doran St. John Tradewinds News Photo by Justin DoranA member of the Westin Resort St. John troupe.

Unfortunately, the energy production on our islands is taking the opposite trend — increased fossil fuel burning and minimal non-polluting energy sources. Yesterday I read that WAPA is borrowing $800 million to build more energy plants, obviously oilburning with minimal amount of non-polluting substitute energy. At the same time, I searched Google and I found that we have much a better and cheaper solution to increase our energy supplies. One mini-nuclear plant costs about $25 million and produces about the amount WAPA needs for one island, 40 megawatts. Therefore, we need $50 mil lion for two plants against the proposed $800 million WAPA wants for thermal plants. These mini-nukes do not produce any harmful gases, are automatic, sealed and do not need maintenance and fuel for 10 years, according to Google. They proare small, 6 x 6 x 20 feet, are underground and need only one acre of space. Because of their small size, they can be put on some small uninhabited island to pacify people who are still afraid of radioactivity. There are two American (Hyperion) companies and one Japanese (Toshiba) company offering these plants and some of them are on the market already this year, according to Google. I do not understand how these offers could escape the attention of our directors of WAPA. They are unbelievably good as far as price, environmental aspects and automatic arrangement. I strongly believe that WAPA should abandon its plans for thermal plants and order just two small mini-nukes saving $750 mil lion in the process. The customers would certainly appreciate a 50 per cent discount on new electricity. It would also put us at a great advantage with the new carbon tax (disguised as carbon credits) because these plants do not spit out any carbon. If we continue with thermal plants, we are exposed to probably enormous increases in the price of oil in the future (they could reach about $300 Z.

I noticed in your June 22-28 issue that a student in the “IEK Students Display Talent at Bajo el Sol” picture type of sign associated with gang members. It would be in your interest to edit pictures care fully before publishing them. I suggest that the school administrator questions this student relative to his intentions with the sign. I may be incorrect in this case, however, that is typical gang behavoir. I deal with gang members on a daily basis as a school administrator in New Jersey. I am also aware that St. John is experiencing a growing issue with crime, much of which is associated with gangs. I saw knew that gangs were beginning to emerge there. It is critical that gangs be exposed and dealt with by law enforcement. I am a yearly visitor to St. John and write this let ter with the best of intentions. I have seen the damage wish to see the residents of St. John fall victim to gang behavior.

both public and private land,” said Coldren. “We’ll look at each subwatershed and we’ll look for the cooperation of all parties along the way.” The NOAA grant requires work to be done on a timely basis and will depend on the cooperation of government agencies and home owners, Coldren added. “We’ll be working very quickly to get it all together and we will be publicizing the projects,” she said. “This will all take place over the next year and a half and will depend upon the cooperation of the homeowners and land owners and groups responsible for individual roads as well as various government agencies.” “To make this happen, it will take cooperation,” said Coldren. “We’re committed to showing that we can make this happen on a timely basis and the government has said they will help us.” CBCC hosted a public forum several months ago for homeowners in the Coral Bay area to share their drainage problems. That meeting netted about 35 proposals in the area but people who didn’t attend the gathering can still take part in the watershed management project, Coldren explained. “It’s never too late to get involved,” she said. “We know we only saw the tip of the iceberg in more homeowners to come for ward and join the ones who have already made commitments.” The NOAA grant means addressing problems in the Coral Bay watershed won’t be dependent on securing funds, Coldren explained. “This means that we should be able to start doing some very serious repairs,” she said. “We don’t have the money to do it, shouldn’t have the money, now we need the cooperation.” In Fish Bay, FBHA president Terry Pishko, who has been aggressively tackling storm water woes has permits from the Department of Planning and Natural Resources for several projects. “We’ve been working on this on and off since about 2002 and we went through a process with DPNR and developed a watershed plan and a road stabilization plan,” said Pishko. “As a community, we’re ready — we’re shovel ready. We have a permit and we’ve iden“A lot of the projects involve a combination of road paving and swale construction to direct water to the guts,” Pishko said. “Some culverts in the area are in poor shape and need to be replaced. We’re also trying to put some concrete on the road to keep it from eroding and to keep the sediment out of the bay.” When Pishko took over as president of FBHA about seven years ago, many of the roads in the area were unpaved and suffered serious erosion, she explained. “We got involved with DPNR and worked together to come up with a plan,” Pishko said. “We worked in phases, initially targetWe’ve pretty much handled those areas and now we’re at a point where we have other spots that need to be worked on.” Except for one small grant obtained by the homeowners association years ago, the NOAA funds group has been awarded, Pishko added. “When you think about how long it would take for our $500 yearly dues to add up to the amount we’ve gotten from NOAA, it’s amazing,” she said. “I’m thrilled. Coming from the ARRA Act of 2009, the grants are also intended the St. John projects to net about 26 new employment opportunities. Local contractors will bid on paving, culvert and swale repair and installation jobs in both watershed areas and project managers will be hired as well. The focus is also on creating jobs that restore the environment. “These Recovery Act projects will put Americans to work while restoring our coasts and combating climate change,” said Commerce Secretary Gary Locke in a preinvestment in sound science and commitment to help strengthen local economies.” While stimulating the local economy, the local ecology is due to get a major boost as well. “We should be able to make Coral Bay more beautiful with more sea grass beds for turtles and have a more beautiful land environment,” said Coldren. “We won’t have the brown sludge anymore.” “This will have a huge impact on the amount of runoff going into Fish Bay,” said Pishko. “We this project.” For more information about the VI Watershed Stabilization project check out, http://www.nmfs.noaa. gov/habitat/restoration/restora tionatlas/recovery_map.html.
