A huge crowd packed the Cruz Bay waterfront on Saturday afternoon, June 5, for an emotional Pan-O-Rama,
officially kicking off this year's St. John Festival. The first event of "Enjoy Our Cultural and Musical Trend for Festival
2010" was a tribute to 15-year-old Nekwan Sprauve, a Love City Pan Dragons member who died last month. A total
of 12 local steel bands filled the waterfront with their sweet pan rhythms. The Kerwan Terrace Wess Stars Steel
Orchestra members wore t-shirts featuring Sprauve's picture and the Love City Pan Dragons dedicated its perfor-
mance to their former member. Senior citizens will take the spotlight next for Festival 2010 with the Senior Variety
show on Friday, June 11.

First Case of Dengue Fever Is Reported

For 2010 in St. Thomas/St. John District

St. John Tradewinds
The Department of Health has confirmed the ter-
ritory's first case of Dengue fever for the year, DOH
Commissioner Julia Sheen announced last week.
The case was reported in the St. Thomas/St. John
district and follow-up testing confirmed positive for
the disease caused by the Aedes Aegypti mosquito,
which is mostly found in the home, according to
"Increased rains can make certain areas near the
home a haven for mosquito breeding and place indi-
viduals at risk for Dengue Fever," Sheen said. "We
went through both the hurricane and rainy seasons last
year without a positive case of Dengue being reported
and with this confirmed case, we urge residents to be
vigilant and help their communities and the Depart-
ment of Health stop the spread of Dengue Fever by
doing basic things."
Residents should: keep tires in dry places; put
plants that are currently in water into soil and empty
flowerpot vases weekly; keep water barrels tightly
sealed; cover or turn pet dishes and buckets that hold
water upside down; and place a screen or mesh over
the overflow pipe of cisterns.
Residents are also reminded to: repair or replace
damaged screens and keep windows and doors with-
out screens closed; cover infant cribs with mosquito

netting; spray dark closets often; and use mosquito
Dengue Fever is caused by a virus transmitted by
the Aedes Aegypti mosquito and symptoms include
headache, joint and muscle pain, nausea, vomiting
and loss of appetite.
Residents should seek immediate care, if they have
those symptoms, Sheen added.
More complicated cases of Dengue Fever can re-
sult in Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever which is charac-
terized by high fever, bleeding and circulatory failure
and in rare instances, may result in death.
DOH Epidemiologist Dr. Eugene Tull said that the
department will issue a fogging schedule as part of its
mosquito abatement program in light of recent rains.
Mosquitoes which cause Dengue, however, are often
found in homes, Tull added.
"They hide in dark closets and sleep when we sleep
and are awake when we are awake," Dr. Tull said.
Sheen also reminded health care providers that
Dengue Fever is a reportable disease and that all
medical agencies, clinics and private physicians ter-
ritory-wide are required to report any such cases to:
773-1311, Ext. 3241.
To report large pools of stagnant water, contact
the Environmental Health Division on St. Thomas at
774-9000, Ext. 4641 or dial 715-5111.

Guy Benjamin Students Learn Life Lessons

21st Century Grant program provides after school educational and fun activities

By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Guy Benjamin School students
showed off their handiwork and
improved mastery of core sub-
jects on Thursday afternoon, June
3, during the open house for the
school's 21st Century Grant after
school program.
When GBS principal Dionne
Wells wrote the federal grant re-
quest for the innovative program,
she estimated that about half of the
student body would take part. Af-
ter the program launched in May,
however, more than 70 students
enrolled, Wells explained.
"We thought we would have
about 50 students," said Wells.
"But we ended up with about 75
students taking part and that is al-
most my entire student body here.
I think there are only 20 students
who didn't join the program."
The after school program meets
Monday through Thursday from
3:30 to 5:15 p.m. at the small Cor-
al Bay public elementary school
and is broken into two distinct

Students do not get to choose the
subject they study in the first half
of the afternoon, but are placed in
classes by need. And Wells knows
exactly which students need help
in which specific areas, explained
the principal.
"What the students study for
the first 45 minutes is based on
their classroom performance and
test scores," said Wells. "I have

After spending the first segment
of the afternoon improving their
academics, the second half of the
after school program is all about
fun. From sewing to basketball,

teachers and volunteers came out
in full force to offer GBS students
a bevy of exciting and enrich-
ing class options during the after
school program.
"We had basketball, yoga,
drumming, cheer leading, big
brother and big sister, drama, life
skills, Quelbe, art, painting, danc-
ing, computers and more," said
Wells. "The students got to choose
which activity they wanted to take
part in for the second half of the

side of Greenville, Alabama. Four people are
dead, Jennifer Thomas Richardson, 53; Kel-
vin Pickering, 15; Juan "Supreme" Fleming,
69; and Lorraine Thomas Fleming, whose
age was not known as of press time.
At the time of the accident, Lorraine Flem-
ing and Jennifer Richardson were residing in

afternoon. And they had so much
to choose from."
Students in the big brother class
learned how to make benches, pic-
ture frames and book ends, while
students in the big sister class mas-
tered the art of sewing.
Art students created collages
and paintings which juxtaposed
texture and geometric shapes. Oth-
er students learned how much fun
science can be, by using polymers
to create a sticky goo substance
and fluffy snow-like flakes.
The five year renewable grant
will allow GBS to continue to of-
fer the popular and enriching after
school program to students.
"We're going to start the pro-
gram up again in September," said
Wells. "We want to continue to
offer what we have now and have
even more things next year. Our
students want to learn more about
ballroom dancing and drama, so
we're looking into that."
Wells will attend a 21st Cen-
tury Grant conference this summer
where she'll be able to see what
other schools across the county
have been doing with the program
as well.
"They contacted us to come to
the conference so we're excited to

lum other places have and what
other things we can do with our af-

The school also hosted its an-
nual spaghetti dinner on June 3
and threw a school-wide party on
June 4.
"We're celebrating meeting our
Annual Yearly Progress for 2009
with a fun day," said Wells. "The
students will play games, we'll
have movies and popcorn and a
big picnic. It's going to be great."

Gifft Hill School Dedicates Althletic Field to Fred Trayser

By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
The entire Gifft Hill School
student body gathered on the
school's brand new athletic field
on Wednesday morning, June 2,
to dedicate the facility to man who
made it possible.
The Fred Trayser Field was of-
ficially unveiled after a ceremony
featuring dancers, cheerleaders
and heart-felt thanks from the stu-
dents themselves.
Students from first through
twelfth grades took the microphone
to thank Trayser, a long time GHS
trustee and supporter, for donating
eight months of work by his crew
to create the field at the St. John
private school.
"Thank you to Fred Trayser
for this field," said Chloe Jarvis.
"I've already made so many great
memories on this field, memories
that I'll have for the rest of my life.
Thank you."
"Gifft Hill School was in dire
need of a sports facility," said
fourth grader Ty Massacoi. "For
home games we had to travel to
Coral Bay to play soccer or foot-
ball. Now we get to play our home
games right here at our own cam-

Almost 200 swimmers took to the waves for the 7th annual Beach to Beach Power
Swim, sponsored by Friends of V.I. National Park.

15-Year-Old Takes Title; $20,000

Raised at 7th Annual Power Swim

By Andrea Milam
St. John Tradewinds
The clouds parted over Love
City on Sunday morning, May 30,
just in time for the seventh annual
Beach to Beach Power Swim. The
competition, a major fundraiser for
the Friends of the Virgin Islands
National Park, attracted nearly
180 swimmers from Spain, Trini-
dad, Jamaica, the states and the
U.S. and British Virgin Islands.
First place finisher, fifteen-year-
old Bryson Mays, was the only St.
Croix resident to make the trip
this year. Mays, who finished with
a time of 1:14:05, stands a good
chance of breaking the unassisted
long course record in years to
come, explained Friends President
Joe Kessler.
"The conditions this year were
a little different, because the wind
was coming out of the southwest,
so the swimmers had some cur-
rent, wind and waves coming at
them," he said. "Bryson Mays
was just three minutes short of the
record, but if he'd had the same
conditions as the record holder,
he certainly would have shattered
it. He's a great competitor with a
great spirit."
Fifty-one-year old Sally Dyk-
stra of Austin, Texas, was the first
place female finisher with a time

Overall winner

of 1:32:06.
Despite the different conditions
at this year's swim, competitors
enjoyed the challenge presented
while facing currents and winds,
Kessler explained.
"Typically this time of year,
you have very strong trade winds
coming from the east-southeast,
which push the swimmers along,"

he said. "It made it a bit more
challenging, which I think the
swimmers enjoyed."
The Power Swim, featur-
ing short, intermediate and long
courses, and assisted and unas-
sisted categories, drew competi-
tors from age four to 73, including
nine seven-year veterans who have
participated in the swim since its
inauguration in 2003.
Second place overall female
finisher Jodi Gomez, who traveled
from Trinidad to compete in the
swim, praised the Friends for their
planning and organization.
"The swim was very well-
organized and navigation was
made extremely easy because of
the very detailed briefing, their
precise descriptions of landmarks
and strategically placed buoys,"
said Gomez.
The swim went off without
a hitch, and no one was injured
thanks in part to the help of nearly
90 volunteers. Twenty-seven kay-
akers accompanied the swimmers,
along with five power boats, sev-
eral dinghies, and support from
the National Park Service and St.
John Rescue.
"We devote a lot of attention
to the safety of swimmers," said

Tim Newton Awarded Memorial Scholarship at Javon Alfred Fun Day

By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
It was a day off from school, but children of all ages still
packed the Winston Wells ball field on Memorial Day after-
noon, Monday, May 31, for the fifth annual Javon Jade "JJ"
Alfred Fun Day.
Deverell Alfred hosts the family fun day each year in
memory of her son JJ who was on his way home from a
school Christmas event when he was struck and killed by a
delivery truck five years ago.
Since her son's life was tragically cut short at the age of
seven, Alfred has ensured that families take at least one day
out of the year to spend time enjoying each other.
"It's so important to spend time with family," said Alfred.
"You never know when something is going to happen. You
want to know that you spent as much time with your kids as
you possibly could."
With inflatable slides, jumping games and dance compe-
titions, children played for hours during the fun day, taking
time out only to enjoy freshly grilled hamburgers and hot-
dogs and ice cold drinks. Children also took home a variety
of games and prizes as well as JJ Fun Day reusable water
In the wake of JJ's tragedy, the Rotary Club of St. John
established the JJ Memorial Scholarship, a $12,500 four-
year scholarship for a graduating St. John student who has
been accepted to a school of higher education.

of this year's JJ Memorial Scholarship during the fun day.
"We had four very good candidates this year," said Full-
er. "The fun part was meeting the applicants and getting to
know them a little bit. The really hard part was deciding
which one would win the scholarship."
"Unfortunately we only have one scholarship to award,"
Fuller said. "All four were truly impressive young people

who restored our faith in young people. It's really tough
making the decision."
Using grades, community service, financial need and
interviews, scholarship committee members spend hours
pouring over the information before selecting the winner.
The club interviewed four finalists, Joanne Berthier,
Danella Bridgewater, Christin Marsh and Timothy Newton,
before selecting Newton as this year's JJ Alfred Memorial
Scholarship recipient.
Newton, who is graduating from the Seventh Day Adven-
tist School, will attend the University of the Virgin Islands
next year where he'll study computer science.
The senior is also interested in cooking and hopes to be
the chef in his own diner one day, Fuller added.
"Timmy says he would like to design video games and
study to be a chef in his own diner some day," said Fuller.
"Timmy has varied interests."
Rotary members will keep in touch with Newton during
his college career, Fuller explained.
"Our first student scholar just graduated this year," said
Fuller. "It's nice because they come back and attend a meet-
ing either during the Christmas break or the summer when
they are on island. It's great to hear them talk about school
and keep us apprised of their grades and how they're do-

Cruz Bay Beach Tree Work Scrutinized

St. John Tradewinds
When a business owner was
granted a permit to prune trees
on Cruz Bay beach last week, the
trimming was supposed to only
take place in front of Department
of Planning and Natural Resources
On Tuesday afternoon, June 1,
however, two men were spotted
pruning trees on Cruz Bay beach
in front of Waterfront Bistro with-
out a DPNR official in sight.
When DPNR was alerted to the
activity, the pruning quickly halted
and Wharfside Village owner Ed
McKenzie was contacted by of-
ficials from DPNR's Division of
Fish and Wildlife, who reportedly
were going to take a second look at
the business owner's permit.
As of press time, the trees re-
mained in their current state on
Cruz Bay beach.

By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Mark those calendars for June 27 and
plan to party for a purpose at Skinny Legs
as friends raise money to advance Wendy
Davis' EMT training to that of paramedic.
After training, Davis will be the only

occurs, each minute can mean the difference
between life and death.
If that accident occurs in the Coral Bay
area, more than 30 precious minutes can
elapse before paramedics reach the scene
from Cruz Bay and that is if EMTs are
not on another call.
While first responders in the Coral Bay
area often arrive much faster then paramed-
ics from town, without proper certification,
those first responders are not legally al-
lowed to administer potentially life saving
This frustrating scenario, however, is
about to change.
Hoping to close that 30 minute window
of response time, St. John firefighter, EMT
and Coral Bay resident Wendy Davis is

enrolling in an intense 15 week paramedic
certification training course in Texas. But
Davis needs the community's help.
Although the paramedic training will
be priceless for anyone who benefits from
Davis' new certification, it will put the fire-
fighter back more than $14,000 for food,
housing, bills and more and that is after
the V.I. Fire Department shells out $3,000
for the course tuition.
Now Davis' friends are stepping up to the
plate and are hoping to have the support of
the community as well.
Looking to ease the financial burden on
Davis who will only receive a 67-cent
raise thanks to the paramedic certification
- a group of friends are hosting a benefit
at Skinny Legs on Sunday, June 27, from 3
to 6 p.m.
The "St. John Benefit to Benefit St. John"
will feature an island twist on TV silliness,
explained Debbie Hime, one of the event
"We're going to play games like 'The
Price is Right,' 'Let's Make a Deal,' and 'A
Minute to Win It,'" said Hime. "We're ex-
pecting an outright crazy, whacko afternoon
of fun and deal making at Skinny Legs."

Hime, Mo
Chabuz, Karen Ba-
ranowski and Val
Donahue are hosting
the event, but the
end result will be a
winning situation
for everyone on St. -
For Coral Bay
residents, Davis' ad-
vanced training will
translate into better Wendy Davis
treatment and short-
er response times.
"I have EMT basic training now which
means I'm really only allowed to give oxy-
gen to a patient," said Davis. "That is the
only medication you can administer without
medical control. Other than that, you can't
do any other advanced response."
"With the paramedic training, I'll be able
to administer cardiovascular drugs, for ex-
ample, based on what I'm finding and what
the patient's signs are," Davis said.
The EMT wants to be able to do every-
thing in her power to treat a patient.
"My motivation for this is because living

in Coral Bay, I see the things that happen out
here," she said. "I just would like to be able
to do as much as I possibly can for a patient.
Sometimes all someone needs is an IV and
before I couldn't administer that."
"I hate feeling helpless or telling people
that as soon as the ambulance gets here they
can get treatment," said Davis. "You just
want to be able to do what you can."
Davis' certification could pave the way
for additional firefighters to follow in her
path, according to Hime.
"There are other St. John firefighters and
EMTs who are considering the paramedic
certification," said Hime. "Thus, if addition-
al monies are raised at the benefit for Wendy,
the funds will remain in a 'Paramedic Fund'
for future training."
Be sure to stop by Skinny Legs on June
27 between 3 and 6 p.m. to help ensure that
Davis get the training she needs to fill this
gap for the community. Residents can also
make tax deductible donations of $25 or
more for Davis through the St. John Revolv-
ing Fund.

Benefit to Benefit St. John" or to make a do-

Fundraiser Nets Almost $6,000 for Injured Footballer

By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
After Dan Feltman tore his knee playing flag
football in the St. John men's league this winter, the
25-year-old bartender was faced with astronomical
medical bills and more than a year of recovery.
Insurance from Department of Parks and Recre-
ation would only cover about $1,000 of Feltman's
bills which are expected to reach more than $80,000,
according to his mother.
Always quick to help a friend in need, Love City
came through for Feltman in some big ways with
their hearts and wallets. As a bartender at High Tide
Restaurant, which is owned by his parents, Feltman
was a popular figure on the Cruz Bay bar scene.
Friends hosted a fundraiser for Feltman on May 8
at the restaurant and raked in almost $6,000 for the
injured bartender.
"It went very well," said Lisa Feltman, Dan's
mother. "Everybody on St. John was just really, re-
ally great. We had a live band and lots of people
showed up."
"About 60 businesses donated raffle prizes and it
was just a great party," said Lisa Feltman.
Even High Tide fans in the states got into the ac-
tion, Lisa Feltman added.
"We have some customers who come down for a
week each year and come to High Tide," she said.
"They read the Tradewinds on line and called in and
sent money. One customer sent down $1,000."
"I have goose bumps right now just talking about
it," Lisa Feltman said.
With such an outpouring of love and kindness,
Dan Feltman is literally at a loss for words, accord-

ing to his mother.
"Dan is almost embarrassed by it all," said Lisa
Feltman. "He's blown away by this and doesn't re-
ally know what to do and neither do I. We just want
to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts."
Fond memories of the fundraiser should help
Feltman get through his projected 18 months of re-
covery and his injury might even lead him down a
new career path, Lisa Feltman explained.
"Dan is actually ahead of where he should be
with his therapy after the surgery and he's consider-
ing going back to school to study physical therapy,"
she said. "Dan already has a degree in exercise sci-
ence, so that would fit right in. He's so grateful for
the money from the benefit which has allowed him
to recover without the stress of worrying about fi-

KatiLady Plans To Offer Classes and

Tastings at New Lumberyard Location

By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
After six years at her latest loca-
tion, Katherine Steinborn of Kati-
Lady Catering has moved her pop-
ular business to the Lumberyard.
"We were busting at the seams,"
said Steinbom about her previous
location on the first floor of the
Tradewinds building. "We have
moved to a larger kitchen and of-
fice space."
In addition to her new digs,
Steinborn took the opportunity of
her move to announce a new ven-
ture Weddings by KatiLady.
Although Steinborn has been
operating her catering and full ser-
vice wedding planning business
on St. John for 14 years, she just
recently split the ventures into two
distinct companies.
"We now have two companies,"
said Steinborn. "One company
features catering KatiLady Ca-
tering and the other features
wedding planning Weddings by
KatiLady. Two different divisions,
same great service."
This is far from Steinborn's first
move. Over more than a decade
of running her catering business,
Steinborn has managed her share
of relocations.
"We were at the Tradewinds
building for six years and before
that we owned KatiLady Vegetar-
ian Deli and Catering where Ron-
nie's Pizza is now," said Steinborn.
"Before that we were in the build-

ing that got torn down near St.
John Car Rental. I've relocated so
many times, but this was a tough
As her equipment and storage
continue to expand, each succes-
sive relocation has taken a little
longer, Steinborn added.
"We have more stuff and heavi-
er equipment, so it's not easy," she
said. "We're living out of boxes,
but we're still going and still man-
aging to give full service to our
clients. Our brides and our clients
come first."
The very nature of catering has
equipped Steinborn with the skills
to operate under the pressure of
"When you think about it, this
is kind of the nature of the busi-
ness," Steinborn said. "We go into
different villas every time we do a
wedding. So we're used to having
a different setting every time we
put on an event."
"You have to think on your feet
in this business," said Steinborn.
"My kitchen is actually bigger
than before so once I'm all settled,
I'll enjoy it and it will lend itself to
more ventures."
While Steinborn is operating
out of a new site, clients can expect
the same great service and amaz-
ing food from KatiLady Catering.
In fact, the move is allowing Stein-
born to expand her offerings and
the chef plans to launch cooking
classes and demonstrations soon,

she explained.
"While we will still be offering
our same great service, now our
kitchen will accommodate cook-
ing classes and demonstrations for
up to 20 people," said Steinborn.
"The classes will be hands-on with
students either enjoying their fin-
ished project together or taking it
home to their families. I'm model-
ing it on when I went to school in
New York."
"They had a recreation center
where people would come in and
they would teach you knife skills
or how to make butter cream or
do Italian food," said Steinborn.
"Then you would either sit down
and eat together or take it home to
your family. So you would leave
with the knowledge and the food."
Steinborn is also working on of-
fering wine classes or tastings with
Paul Kessock of West Indies, she
"Paul and I are looking into
offering classes for people who
want to learn more about wine or
offering pairings and tastings,"
said Steinborn. "We have the right
space and we're entertaining all
sorts of options like that."
What Steinborn ultimately of-
fers in her new expanded Lum-
beryard location will be based on
what the public wants, according
to the chef.
"I want to hear from people,"
Steinborn said. "I want to get feed-

fun experience for all. Families can come and register
their children for the summer camp of their choice

Residents Urged To Prepare for 2010 Hurricane Season

St. John Tradewinds
The VI. Territorial Emergency Management Agen-
cy and Governor John deJongh joined the rest of the
nation in marking National Hurricane Preparedness
Week, May 23-29, with a call for all Virgin Islanders
to begin preparations for the 2010 Atlantic Hurricane
"Many of us have survived of our share of hurri-
canes, but we cannot become complacent in our ef-
forts to be prepared," said deJongh. "We must take
the necessary steps to protect ourselves, our families,
our business and our community."
Last month VITEMA and the Office of the Gover-
nor participated in a conference call with Homeland
Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency Administrator Craig Fu-
gate and officials from the National Hurricane Center

With the start of the 2010 Atlantic Hurricane Sea-
son here, the National Hurricane Center is continuing
its work to give citizens more notice before impending
storms, Mark Walters, VITEMA Director, explained.
"But while advancements have been made in fore-
casting and tracking hurricanes, the National Hurri-
cane Center stresses that these storms can intensify
with little warning," said Walters. "A hurricane is an
area-wide impact of high winds, storm surges, flood-
ing and tornadoes."
VITEMA is urging everyone to make time this hur-
ricane season to develop a family disaster plan, to en-
sure an emergency supply kit is on-hand and to stay
Important items to have ready in case of an emer-
gency include a battery-powered radio, flashlight,
extra batteries, medicines, non-perishable food,
hand-operated can opener, utility knife and first aid
"Everyone should be prepared to be self-sustaining

for at least three days," Walters said.
Walters added that important documents should be
placed in a waterproof bag. These may include medi-
cal records, contracts, property deeds, leases, banking
records, insurance records and birth certificates.
"The better prepared we are, the lesser the impact
of these and the more resilient we can be," Walters
This is also the time to consider the needs of every-
one in the household including a person with a dis-
ability, he added.
To learn more about preparedness visit www.
Ready.gov or www.Hurricanes.gov. For more infor-
mation call Walters at 774-2244.

Island Baby Rental Company Simplifies Traveling with Kids

By Andrea Milam
St. John Tradewinds
Babies are soft, sweet and wonderful, but
they also happen to come with several times
their weight in gear, which can make travel-
ing a giant production. Add in the hurdles
one must jump through to get to St. John -
taxis, ferries, etc. and traveling to the is-
land with young children suddenly seems as
though it almost isn't worth the hassle.
Enter St. John moms Jayme Gottschall
and Christy Beaty. The two women, who
have young children themselves, have made
traveling to Love City exceptionally easier
with their recently launched company, Is-
land Baby, which rents out everything from
cribs to life jackets for family island vaca-
Gottschall and Beaty, who used to do
pick-ups for villa rental companies, saw the
need for such a service firsthand when wel-
coming families to the island.
"We saw guests coming in with a scream-
ing infant and a toddler trying to run away,
while mom is pushing an empty stroller and
carrying two suitcases and a car seat," said
Gottschall. "Meanwhile, dad is nowhere to
be found because he's fetching their addi-
tional suitcases and the pack-and-play."
The idea for Island Baby was hatched
during morning walks, where Gottschall
and Beaty talked about how nice it would be
to help out those families struggling to reach
St. John with all their luggage and baby gear

Jayme Gotschall, left and Christy Beaty, were inspired by their little ones
- and what it takes to travel with a little one to start their new business

in tow.
"We saw how challenging it is for parents
to come down here with their kids, and we
just thought it was needed," said Beaty.
Island Baby was recently launched, com-
plete with a Web site where customers can
view inventory and prices, and select which
items they'll need for their vacation.
Parents can rest assured knowing their
car seats will be waiting for them at their

car rental company, and their villa will be
stocked with the other items they selected.
And forget the screwdriver and instruction
manual the cribs and pack and plays are
already assembled.
Gottschall and Beaty decided to offer for
rent some items that can be purchased lo-
cally, such as beach toys, to avoid the excess
waste that often comes when traveling with

"I know everyone can buy beach toys
here, but we were trying to be green," said
Gottschall. "The toys just get thrown out at
the end of the trip, so we figured we'd rent
them out for a very low cost. They're get-
ting reused and we're not creating all this
Island Baby can also help with things that
are not listed in their online inventory, in-
cluding diapers, Gottschall continued.
"If you don't see it on the Web site, that
doesn't mean we can't get it," she said.
"We're very resourceful and we've made
great connections on St. Thomas and with
online merchants. Any question that any-
body has about traveling here with kids, we
can most likely answer it."
Gottschall and Beaty are already busy
taking orders, and they've received plenty
of positive feedback on their venture.
"People have been calling us just to thank
us for the service," said Gottschall. "Every-
one has responded really positively."
Starting Island Baby was just a way to
extend the help and support local moms of-
ten provide to one another, Beaty added.
"It's really nice to see everyone being so
positive about it," she said. "It's two island
moms doing what they know best. It's nice
to be able to help out stateside moms down

Film Society Thanks Community

Court Refuses To Sentence Twice-Convicted Felons

We at the St. John Film Soci-
ety are very grateful to our com-
munity for the support we have
received since our beginning in
February 2009.
We have enjoyed a very suc-
cessful winter season that includ-
ed several visiting filmmakers,
and are in the midst of a summer
series that we hope will continue
to stimulate and entertain you.
Your generous contributions to
our tipj ar and beyond have helped
us get off the ground and on our
way toward meeting our mission.
More importantly, your regular
attendance at our free screenings,
and your patience when things
have not gone quite as planned,
give us encouragement that we

are on the right road.
We are especially grateful to
Julietta and the Sputnik Bar fam-
ily, and to Debbie, Barbara, and
Tony at the Marketplace. Without
their willingness to work with us
and provide us a place to gather,
St. John Film could not be hap-
We are also very apprecia-
tive of our friends at La Plancha
for providing popcorn and other
goodies, and hosting visiting
filmmaker events.
And thank you to everyone
else who in some way has en-

June 19, 2010, marks three years since these men
conspired and succeeded in murdering my son Jamie
We as a family have been subjected to three tri-
als three convictions and three sentencing hearings.
One sentencing hearing was cancelled one week be-
fore the scheduled date and twice we traveled to St.
Thomas only be turned away without the court com-
pleting sentencing. It is devastating for our family to
continually be promised a sentencing only to have the
court delay a decision over and over.
On and on we go, around and around and still the
court refuses to end this emotional torture. I have been
told V.I. Law states, sentencing must occur within 30
days of conviction.
From keeping in touch with the V.I. News I know
that law is disregarded on a regular basis. Not only
have these three convicted felons not been sentenced,
it appears at least one is out on bail and under house
arrest (joke).
Three juries have convicted these men and still
the court refuses to sentence. The governor has made
public statements echoing our frustrations and prom-
ises to make changes to the court's policy of repeat-
edly setting convicted felons free on house arrest.
Only recently a 17-year-old was on house arrest
and actually left St. Thomas traveled to St. Croix and
shot three innocent bystanders. Fortunately, no one
was murdered.
How in the name of justice can someone on house
arrest leave the island with no one noticing? Who is
monitoring these criminals? How can the citizens rest
while they are subjected to the courts decisions to set
convicted felons free?
Some would say, "who cares they are just killing
each other." Not true though, is it? Richie Fontaine
was found guilty of shooting a young innocent boy
on a school bus after several arrests and convictions
while waiting for his sentencing and the 17-year-old
on St. Croix who did the recent shootings was, as I
stated above, on house arrest.
My son, Jamie was not a gang member. He was
a tourist and was stabbed to death on the streets on
Love City. Our frequent trips back to the USVI have

Who is actually in charge on St. John? Maybe in-
stead of an Island Administrator, we should have a
manager, someone who sees that our island, and in
particular, Cruz Bay, needs managing.
Let's take a stroll after our mad search for park-
ing and go and see what is happening. Just walk
within a quarter mile of the post office and we get
blasted by ear piercing decibels of music coming
from Cap's Place and W & W on the comer.
It's a battle of amplifiers, day and night. Whether
or not there are people at these establishments, the
pounding beat goes on, shockingly loud. Unfortu-
nately, neither the police, nor our administrator can
hear this violation of peace in our town caused by

left us feeling a deep sadness, so deep it is impossible
to clearly describe.
Furthermore, we have spoken with people from
all walks of life that live on St. John and St. Thomas
and each and every one has prayed with us for jus-
tice. They join us in the sadness we feel because their
homes are being torn apart by violent crime they
too want Justice for Jamie.
May 14, 2010, was Jamie's 24th birthday and was
also the last scheduled sentencing date for Thomas
and Boston. One week prior, on Mother's Day, I re-
ceived notification the sentencing had been canceled
by the court.
I must have some kind of mother's intuition, be-
cause for the very first time we chose not to appear
at the sentencing and had not spent the thousands of
dollars it costs us for travel and lodging. We decided
to stay home and celebrate Jamie's birthday together
with family and friends.
We thought we could all be here at home together
and would finally hear the fate of Thomas and Bos-
ton. However, as usual, no sentencing.
As of today the court has still not scheduled any
hearings and these men are attempting to either have
the court set them completely free or schedule yet
more trials. How can the people, the juries and Ja-
mie's family continue to deal with what seems to us a
complete and utter disregard for the law and justice?
My Jamie never leaves my mind, not for a moment.
The wound is raw and each time I begin to heal, the
wound is ripped open again. Memorial Day we had
family and a few close friends to our home and during
the festivities of ball, croquet and burgers. I couldn't
help but think how Jamie would have been the life of
the party and how happy he would have been.
I want my son back but, since that cannot happen,
the least I can hope for is Justice. Will another June
19, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christ-
mas pass without Justice for Jamie?
Is there anyone who can help put an end to this
continued horror?
Jamie, we love you and cry for you every day. I
love you.

these two businesses.
Now, let's walk over to the customs parking lot.
The lot is crowded with vehicles, and double-parking.
Yet, look, there are eight big taxis parked there, all
with "on duty" signs.
Police Officer Foy told us that if we see taxis with
"on duty" signs parked in the community's parking
areas, we are to call the police to ticket the taxi -
yeh, right! What! Our police and our administrator
don't see this, and they want us to tell them about it?
But wait, let's continue towards our six 30-minute
parking places along the waterfront, you know, near
the administrator's Battery. Oh no, two "on duty"

Who's In Charge?

St. John Tradewinds, June 7-13, 2010 15

I read with considerable interest recent articles about
the Roadway Committee's efforts to improve road
safety on St. John. I particularly applaud their efforts
to get the island's roads painted with edge and center
markings and trying to get the Public Works Depart-
ment to live up to their often repeated commitment to
do this work.
However, I do have significant concerns and these
are related to proposals to open roads through Virgin
Islands National Park.
Coral Bay's vulnerability due to limited access is a
very real problem. It is an issue that I am personally
concerned about and offer this perspective wearing
three "hats:
I am a resident of Carolina and I am concerned about
the real likelihood of access along Centerline Road be-
ing blocked by landslides or road collapse;
I am the president of the Friends of VI National Park
and some of the suggestions offered would negatively
impact the park's natural and cultural resources; and,
I was a road engineer in a former life and built roads
in some very difficult places in countries such as Sierra
Leone, Sudan, Ethiopia and Kenya, so I have some un-
derstanding of the technical issues involved.
It is important to understand that the crux of the
problem rests with the 2-mile section of Centerline
Road (Route 10) between its junction in Coral Bay
with Route 107 (near the Emmaus Moravian Church)
and its junction with North Shore Road/King Hill Road
(Route 20) at "Colombo's Yogurt Stand."
Beyond this point there are two alternatives to travel
west continue on Centerline Road, or proceed by
the North Shore Road so if one is blocked there is
the other route.
Between Coral Bay and Colombo's Yogurt Stand
there are no other current alternatives. This section of
road is at great risk to landslides due to some irrespon-
sible development above the road, poor engineering
when the road was designed/built, and from goats that
have denuded the hillsides and thereby destabilized the
soil and rock.
However, before we consider alternatives we must
accept that the most important and pressing issue is
what is going to be done to improve and protect the
at-risk sections of Centerline Road between Coral Bay
and King Hill Road.
These sections require serious and urgent attention,
which should certainly be done prior to constructing
alternative routes.
Several alternative routes to/from Coral Bay have
been mentioned and they fall into two broad categories
of feasible and unfeasible:
The most feasible alternative is the improvement of
the Coral Bay section of King Hill Road. This is the
continuation of North Shore Road from Colombo's Yo-
gurt Stand down through the Carolina Valley to meet
Route 107 in Coral Bay. The unpaved section of this
road is only about half a mile long and is passable in
a 4WD vehicle with good ground clearance. Improve-
ment would require relatively minor earthworks to
widen some curves and reduce some gradients, atten-

tion to drainage and guardrails, and paving. Funds for
this work have been appropriated several times, but for
whatever reason, it was never realized. This alternative
is by far the easiest and least expensive alternative.
The next feasible alternative is the improvement of
the Bordeaux Mountain Road (officially Route 108)
that starts at Chateau Bordeaux, winding through and
then down Bordeaux Mountain to meet Route 107 in
Coral Bay. About one to two miles of this road is un-
paved and about 100-200 yards of this unpaved section
is often impassable, even in a 4WD vehicle with good
ground clearance. Improvement would require earth-
works to widen some cuts and reduce some gradients,
attention to drainage and guardrails, and paving. This
alternative would probably cost 2-3 times what the
King Hill Road improvement would cost.
Another, but unfeasible, alternative is a road from
Lameshur to Reef Bay and then on either to Fish Bay
or up the L'esperance Valley to meet with Centerline
Road. While parts of these routes existed as cart tracks
or very rough 4WD-passable tracks, what's left today
is merely indicative of what route could be taken.
To construct a road along this route to acceptable
standards would be a major engineering undertaking
with very extensive earthworks to deal with several
hills and significant drainage works to accommodate
the runoff of the Reef Bay and Sieben watersheds.
The difficulty and the cost alone (and for argument's
sake let say this alternative would cost at least 20 times
what the other alternatives above would cost) should
keep us from seriously considering this alternative.
However, when you consider that this would be un-
dertaken in an internationally designated biosphere and
through what is arguably the most pristine part of VI
National Park, it should be a non-starter.
The last, and also unfeasible, alternative is the re-
construction of the Johnny Horn Road from its junc-
tion with Route 10 at the Emmaus Moravian Church
in Coral Bay over to Leinster Bay and then along the
shore, or uphill and inland a bit, to the meet up with the
Annaberg access road.
Again this would be very difficult and very costly
and would go through arguably the second most pris-
tine section of the Park. In addition, this area is particu-
larly rich in historic structures and unexcavated arche-
ological sites and any construction would significantly
threaten those cultural resources.
There are reasonable alternatives and even relative-
ly economical ones and should be implemented as
soon as possible. In contrast, the alternatives involving
national park lands are the most difficult and expensive
- even without considering the immeasurable dam-
age to the environment and/or destruction of cultural
resources and really do not warrant further reason-
able discussion.
Again, I applaud the committee's work and I hope
that they take the comments above into consideration.
In addition, I stand ready to assist the committee in any
way possible.

Friends of V.I. National Park

16 St. John Tradewinds, June 7-13, 2010

As far as we know, we live on the only place in the
cosmos that has or has ever had life on it. We are the
highest level of life that the cosmos has produced in its
billions and billions of years of existence.
In the last 150 years we have created a totally non-
sustainable way of existence, not only for our own spe-
cies but for life on this planet and the cosmos.
During the 1990s, one U.S. citizen consumed 30
times what one citizen of India did; developed nations
were one-fifth of the world's population; used two-
thirds of all resources and generated three quarters of
the world's pollution and waste.
As India, China, and the rest of the people in the
world begin to catch up, the exploitation of the natural
resources in the world will begin to seriously deplete
the supply. Living and renewable resources are being
depleted just as fast as non-renewable resources and
our negative impact on the environment is beginning
to affect the whole ecological-system of the planet.
It seems pretty clear that the planet cannot sustain
5 or 6 billion human beings. It doesn't really matter
if they are hunter/gatherers, middle class capitalists or
somewhere in between. That many humans are just too
many for the planet.
In our rush for a better life, we have put all other life
on the planet at risk life that we depend on for our
own survival. James Lovelock in his most recent Book
"The Vanishing Face of Gaia" provides a pretty good
description of the possible outcome.
It is certainly worth a try to stop damaging this plan-
et and begin to develop a way of life for our species
that does work with all the other forms of life on this
planet. But, it does not appear that using our intelli-
gence alone is going to solve the dilemma that we have
created, even if we make a massive effort to correct the
problem, which we are not.
A while ago I was talking to an Arab friend and I
asked him if he was a Muslim. He told me that he un-
derstood it and could be sympathetic to his friends who

Continued from Page 14
taxis are there, and a guy who set up a business out
of the back of his truck, parking all day long. Right
on the administrator's doorstep, community parking
is stolen by these businesses.
However, there must be a reason because the taxis
have nearly all of the parking on the waterfront. So
let's check it out. Oh my, there are only two taxis
parked in their many waterfront spaces. Why don't
they use their own spaces?
Could it be greed, ignorance, insensitivity, arro-
gance, or simply a lack of management by the ad-
ministrator, the police, or the taxi association? Why
doesn't anyone in authority monitor this for us poor
residents and visitors who are just looking for a park-
ing space in our few designated spots.
Okay, let's continue and stroll towards Nature's,
unfortunately passing the blasters of amps again.
Hey, there's the fisherman selling out of his truck, half

were, but he really wasn't Muslim. He said he believed
that God made the angels then God made the animals.
He said he believed that after a while God made
humans, who had the qualities of both animals and an-
gels, a being which could choose which qualities of an-
gels or animals they wanted to use to guide themselves
in their lives. This made sense to me even though I
considered myself a Christian.
Between 1,400 and 3,000 years ago there was
a great surge of spiritually in humanity. Most of the
world's religions developed during that time. Some in-
dividual humans have developed to a very high level
of spirituality and many have tried to teach the rest of
us how to live lives that are spiritually connected to
each other and all of life.
It is sad that humanity has not developed much in
this area since then, and the few groups or commu-
nities that have developed this way, which includes
many "indigenous people," have been overwhelmed
and destroyed by the rest of us.
Today most of what is called religion or "spiritual-
ity" is used to justify and feed the ego or the "animal"
side of us rather than control and guide it.
There was a paradigm shift on this planet during
my grandfather's lifetime. He went from riding a horse
and buggy as humans did since pre-history to getting a
ship to America, to sitting with me and watching men
walk on the moon. There likely will be an even greater
paradigm shift in my lifetime, one that could be very
detrimental to life as we know it.
It appears to me that we should start making a seri-
ous effort to develop and use the angelic qualities of
human being, to try to get in alignment with our spiri-
tual qualities and the spiritual aspects of the cosmos.
There is no doubt that we are in the midst of a para-
digm shift and it would be really too bad if we do not
use it to try fully develop ourselves as a species, rather
than just to try to survive it.

blocking the street.
That's okay, we don't mind trying to negotiate
around you, because Nature's has the road blocked
usually anyway. Ah look, there's "Our Market," the
late night expanding, sometimes market. Without
permits and approval, their expansion grows and our
parking thins.
And, as if that's not enough, there's a car rental
agency, which was supposed to move a long time ago,
taking up most of the parking in the lot. Where, oh
where, has our little parking gone?
Gee, wouldn't itbe nice if our administrator and our
police could see what we just saw strolling through a
piece of our town?
Why do 98 percent of us have to suffer daily the
abuses practiced by two percent of our community.
I know that our administrator and the police are so
busy, but all of this is right in front of their noses!

Angels and Animals in All of Us


Robert E. Davis

St. John Tradewinds
A memorial and cel-
ebration of a life well-
lived will be hosted in
honor of Robert E. Da-
vis, also known as Bob
or "Papa", who passed
away on April 19 2010.
The memorial will be
on Saturday, June 12, at
3 p.m. at Skinny Legs
Restaurant in Coral Bay,
St. John.
Bob was born inYale,
OK., in 1926 to William
and Dorcas Davis. He
enlisted in the Marines
in 1943 at the age of 17
and was assigned to the \
elite "Raider Battalions"
as a rifleman. Bob "Papa" Davis
Bob was stationed on
Guadalcanal, Guam and
finally Okinawa, where
he was reassigned to the 22nd Marine Regiment. He was wounded
in Okinawa during the beach assault and was eventually discharged
from the Marines in 1945.
After the war, Bob enrolled in a photography course which began
his lifelong artistic love of photography. Bob owned and operated
an art gallery in Oklahoma City until moving to Winter Park, CO.,
where his love for photography and skiing came together when he
was employed as the official photographer for the Winter Park Ski
Area. Bob's technically unique outdoor and skiing photographs are
sought after by collectors today.
In 1979 Bob sailed with friends to the Virgin Islands from Califor-
nia making landfall in Chocolate Hole, St. John. He made St. John
his home for the next 32 years. During that time, Bob performed hun-
dreds of lovely beach weddings on St. John as well as at The Ritz-
Carlton on St. Thomas.
His love for art led him to create his much sought after Caribbean
Sea Glass Pendant which was featured in most bridal magazines. It
was also on St. John that Bob became a P.A.D.I. Instructor to share
with others his love of the sea. He was the consummate diver and
loved to educate his fellow divers about underwater life.
His enthusiasm in all facets of life was contagious and he inspired
many to appreciate the natural beauty that surrounds us all.
Bob is survived by his brother, Bill Tom Davis; daughter, Kris
Johnston; and sons, Brent Rooney and Greg Beam. Grandchildren in-
clude Jeff Johnston, Annie Johnston, Brittany, Kaelyn, and Madison,
great grandchildren Brooke and Denver Johnston, numerous nieces
and nephews and countless loving friends around the world.
Accomplished photographer, expert skiier, master diver, glass art-
ist, wedding officiate, spiritual advisor and best friend to many, Bob
truly lived his life to the fullest and his brightly shining light will be
greatly missed.
Family and friends request that donations be sent to "Kids and the
Sea" KATS St. John 9901 Emmaus St. John, VI. 00830 (www.katsst-

7th Annual Beach to Beach Power Swim

Continued from Page 5
The Friends also devote plenty of attention to the
swimmers by ensuring many of them receive awards,
which were handed out at an after-swim party at Op-
The first place male and female received hand
blown glass trophies from Maho Bay Camps, while 24
plaques were given to the second and third place male
and female finishers, along with top age group fin-
ishers. Each participant received a medal, and awards
were also give to the youngest and oldest competitors,
and to the competitor who traveled the furthest to at-
tend the swim this year's award went to Susanna
Mander of Palma De Mallorca, Spain.
"Giving out so many awards just gives the swim-
mers some encouragement, and we hope to see them
in future years," said Kessler.
This year's swim raised approximately $20,000 for
the Friends, and a new fundraising component, Race
for a Reason, encouraged swimmers to fundraise in-
dividually as well.
In addition to raising money for the Friends, the
Power Swim also showcases some of the most beauti-
ful aspects of the VINP, Kessler explained.
"The beaches and waters of the park are two of its
best features," he said. "You're swimming along from
Maho to Hawksnest, and whether you're looking
down in the water or towards the shore when you're
taking a breath, there's beauty all around you. A lot of
swimmers said they slowed down at times just to take
in what they were seeing."

Swimmers reported seeing stingrays, turtles, nurse
sharks and myriad species of fish during the competi-
Looking to the future, Kessler hopes to see growth
in the number of people who come from away for the
swim. To that end, he emailed hundreds of stateside
swim clubs in the hopes they will send competitors.
"There is a subculture of swimmers who look for
interesting swims to compete in, then take a vacation
around the event," he said. "When one person comes
for the swim, they go back and tell their friends, and
we're starting to see more and more people planning
vacations around the Power Swim."
The swim will also receive national publicity in
November when an article is published in Self Maga-
zine, which sent an editor to both cover, and compete
in, this year's event.
The Beach to Beach Power Swim could not have
happened without the help of several sponsors, in-
cluding Freebird, St. John Hardware, Maho Bay
Camps, St. John Insurance, Mongoose Junction, An-
gel Electric, V.I. Department of Tourism, Topa, Sco-
tiabank, Theodore Tunick, Alfredo's Landscaping,
Chelsea Drug Store, St. John Dental, PGU Insurance,
St. John Accommodations Council, Virgin Islands
Ecotours, Novecento 900, Merchants Commercial
Bank, Gallows Point Resort, Rotary Club of St. John,
