Shante Monsanto-Weeks Crowned



St. John's 50th Festival Queen


By Malik Stevens
St. John Tradewinds
On Saturday, June 26, St. John
was filled with a lot more glitz,
glamour and poise than usual as
four beautiful young ladies took to
the stage vying to be the next Miss
St. John Festival Queen 2010.
Even though the pageant started
an hour later than planned and the
field was still recovering from a
weeks-worth of continuous rain-
fall, the audience was filled with
many excited spectators to watch
Jah'Vena Nisbett, Shant6 Monsan-
to-Weeks, Abigail Hyndman and
Nanyamka Cagan display their
grace and beauty as they vied for
the honor of representing the is-
land as 2010 Miss St. John Festi-
val Queen.
The girls were judged in six
categories: a personal interview
conducted prior to the show; intro-


duction speech; swimwear; inter-
national costume; evening wear;
and last but not least, question and
answer.
The girls made their first ap-
pearance wearing festive yellow
and turquoise carnival attire with
head pieces adorned with yellow
feathers as they danced onto the
stage to deliver their introductory
speeches.
They were indeed a "kaleido-
scope of beauty and fashion" as
Contestant #4 Cagan put it. After
bidding the crowd a warm wel-
come and delivering their speech-
es, the ladies were joined by the
St. John Committee Dancers. The
group continued to keep the beat
alive, wowing the crowd with their
creative movements in a dance
choreographed by Lester Warner.
After listening to the contagious
rhythms of Spectrum Band, which


played between each segment of
the show, the pageant continued
as the girls individually returned
to the stage for the swimwear seg-
ment of the show.
Contestant #1 Nisbett came out
in a bi-color sundress which she
removed to reveal a pink crystal
sequenced monokini, which con-
sisted of a pink bodice paired with
a patterned bottom in vibrant or-
ange, beige, gold and brown.
Contestant #2 Monsanto-Weeks
came out sporting a turquoise mo-
nokini, which was connected by
a gold sequence piece of material
across her abdomen representing
sand, and colorful flowers on her
upper left chest and right waist.
Contestant #3 Hyndman also
wore a colorfully patterned mono-
kini. With a base color of deep for-
est green, the swimsuit featured a
modern pattern mixed with orange,


yellow, black, purple and green.
Contestant #4 Nanyamka
donned a pink one-piece, embel-
lished with crystals which one
spectator said "she was born to
wear."
The swimwear segment was
followed by the International Cos-
tume segment. With each girl rep-
resenting a different country and
culture of people, the category was
truly a highlight of the night. Nis-
bett portrayed a Native American.
Wearing a yellow, black and gold
tunic-style dress, Nisbett entered
the stage to the sounds of a his-
torical reading about the Iroquois
Indian tribe, before enticing the
crowd with a Native American-
inspired dance.
Monsanto-Weeks portrayed
Brazil with her costume, which
was a yellow two-piece ensemble
adorned with leaves and a yellow
ruffled skirt with an extravagant
headpiece which held a original
hand-made Toucan bird. She then
broke out into the Samba which
she dedicated to the African slaves'
history of Brazil.
Contestant #3 Hyndman was
a crowd-pleaser as she came out


Jah'Vena Q. Nisbett won
"Miss Cooperative."

Next St. John

Chamber Meeting

Set for June 29

St. John Tradewinds
The St. John Chapter of the
St. John/St. Thomas Chamber of
Commerce will host its June meet-
ing on Tuesday, June 29, from 5:30
to 6:30 p.m., upstairs at Ocean
Grill.
The group has been making
progress on pulling St. John to-
gether with plans for the Cruz Bay
waterfront.
Volunteers are still needed for
Children's Carnival Village. Ro-
tary has asked community orga-
nizations to help and the St. John
Community Foundation has com-
mitted to St. John Rotary to help
on July 1. The Friends of the Park
have volunteered for June 30.
They both still need help and
while the Chapter has not set a
special day, please consider vol-
unteering at least for part of one
night. Set-up begins at 4:30 p.m.
and the village ends at 9 p.m. No
one expects that residents will
commit for an entire night, just
help out for a few hours.
Thank you to those who have
volunteered their time. They cer-
tainly can use more help so please
contact Audrey Penn at Friends of
VINP at 779-4940, or Paul Devine
at the Community Foundation at
693-9410 or any Rotary member
to volunteer.

Shante Monsanto-Weeks Crowned 50th Festival Queen


Continued from Page 3
tain-range of greenery, Hyndman
wore a bright lime green leotard,
with a long skirt which depicted
pictures of sea and animal life,
which she topped off with a grand
floral head piece.
Contestant #4 Cagan made
her entrance through the crowd
as a French Polynesian Goddess.
Marked with a distinguished array
of feathers, flowers lowing hula
skirt, the costume was a true sight
to be seen.
The evening wear segment fol-
lowed and was all around jaw-
dropping. Each girl wore gowns
which complimented their bodies
exquisitely.
Contestant #1 Nisbett wore an
emerald and silver masterpiece
which featured a silver beaded
neckline and short train that trailed
behind her.
Monsanto-Weeks wore an eye-
catching yellow dress embellished
with sequences which revealed her
slender lines.
Contestant #3 Hyndman dared


to don a bold and "unyielding"
burgundy colored dress featuring
crystals which gave off an illu-
sion of rain drops. The bottom of
the gown was accented with small
ruffled rosets.
Cagan finished off the evening
wear segment with a soft baby-
blue one strap gown with a dra-
matic slit,which she complimented
with dangling chandelier earrings.
For the question and answer
segment of the program, the four
young ladies were all asked, "As
Miss. St. John Festival Queen
what do they feel the role should
be and why?"
All four girls gave similar an-
swers responding by saying they
would be role models, ambassa-
dors and representatives of the St.
John people, but for C oiil .ctit 4,
Cagan, that was not enough.
After saying she felt Miss St.
John should be an ambassador and
role model, she went into specific
roles she felt that the Queen should
fill.
Cagan continued by saying that


as the Queen, her role should also
include greeting tourists on the
St. John dock, volunteering at the
senior citizens' home, mentoring
students at all the St. John schools,
while being an avid participant in
all other community events.
There is no doubt that the judges
had a hard time with their jobs that
night with all the ladies flawlessly
giving their speeches and model-
ing their one-of-a-kind fashion
pieces.
After the scores were tallied
Master of Ceremonies Peter Ottley,
announced Contestant #1 Nisbett
as Miss Cooperative; Contestant
#4 Cagan as Miss Congenial-
ity, Winner of Best Evening Wear,
and Miss Intellect; Contestant #3
Hyndman as Miss Photogenic;
Winner of Best International Wear
and First runner up.
With all the category winners
revealed, the crowd grew quiet
with anticipation and excitement,
until Contestant #2 Monsanto-
Weeks was announced as Miss St.
John Festival Queen 2010.

/ Are you concerned about rapidly escalating maintenance fees
and special assessments?
/ Are you tired of getting less service for far more money?
/ Are you exasperated by the lack of transparency of
Starwood's management?
/ Are you aware of the loss of resale value because of high
maintenance fees?
/ Are you aware that owners who pay their fees are being
required to pay the unpaid maintenance fees of other
owners?
We are villa owners who want to prevent Starwood from making
more costly changes without required owner consent. We also
want to revise the by-laws, which give Starwood complete control
of the Board of the owners' association until the very last unit is
sold. And we want to elect independent owner representatives to
that Board.
We need the names and e-mail addresses of as many owners as

A tourist parked in the space occupied by the VIPD vehicle, above, is what started
events that eventually led to Rudolph's arrest for interfering with an officer.



Resident Cleared on Questionable Arrest


By Susan Mann
St. John Tradewinds
Coral Bay resident James Ru-
dolph finally had his day in court
last Monday, June 14, after near-
ly a year of delays on the part of
prosecutor Charles Willoughby,
and the V.I. Police Department.
Rudolph was detained in jail for
nearly three days following his ar-
rest in Cruz Bay last August 1. He
appeared before V.I. Magistrate
Judge Kathleen Mackay with his
attorney Jessica Chung June 14.
The Coral Bay resident was
originally arrested by VIPD Of-
ficer Derrick Callwood, who
charged Rudolph with interfering
with an officer discharging his
duty, in violation of title 14 V.I.
Code section 1508, and several
other violations which were later
dropped.
According to Rudolph, the ar-
rest took place after he observed
Callwood writing a traffic ticket
for a rental vehicle driven by a
tourist who was picking up a pizza
at Cafe Roma.
The vehicle was parked along
the street between the entrance to
No%% and Zen" boutique, where
Rudolph was closing the store for
the night, and the large tree adja-
cent to the "Bayside Mini-Mart"
parking lot.
According to both Rudolph and


...'Come on, give the guy a break, he just
went to pick up a pizza', then I was immedi-
ately handcuffed and arrested."
St. John resident James Rudolph


Callwood, other vehicles were
also parked along the same side of
the street.
"I said to the Officer, 'Come on,
give the guy a break, he just went
to pick up a pizza', then I was im-
mediately handcuffed and arrest-
ed," Rudolph testified in court.
When the arresting officer and
his witness Detective Jessica Vin-
cent testified in court, however,
they told a completely different
story.
Callwood testified that he was
on patrol in Cruz Bay "doing traf-
fic enforcement" when Vincent,
who was standing in the area,
brought to his attention that the
white SUV was parked illegally.
Callwood stated that the vehicle
was blocking the entrance to "Cra-
zy Crackers." He also testified that
as he was writing the citation, Ru-
dolph came out of the store, walked
toward him in a "confrontative"
manner, then started shouting at
him and refused to step back.
The VIPD officer said that he
gave Rudolph four verbal warn-


ings, repeatedly told Rudolph to
step back, and told him if he did
not he [Callwood] would have to
arrest him.
The officer said on the witness
stand that Rudolph refused to do
so, and that he twice told Call-
wood, "You are going to have to
lock me up."
Callwood told the court that he
felt threatened by Rudolph and
that due to Rudolph's aggressive
behavior he was unable to finish
writing the citation, which Detec-
tive Vincent had to complete.
The VIPD Officer said he then
placed Rudolph under arrest, took
him to the VIPD's Leander Jurgen
Command in Cruz Bay and ad-
vised him of his rights. Callwood
testified that he knew nothing fur-
ther about Rudolph's status that
night, because he left the station
and went back in the field.
Defense witness Kent Johnston
later testified that he and a friend,
Rick Tarr, went to the police sta-
tion that night to find out how to

Streaming Live from Lameshur Bay

Denver teens install underwater camera at VIERS dock


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Thanks to a group of Colorado high
school students, people anywhere in the
world can get an up-close, high definition
look at the underwater life in Lameshur Bay
with just a few clicks of their mouse.
Live streaming from underneath the
waves at Lameshur Bay went live on Tues-
day, June 22, becoming the third live web-
cam installed by a group of 10 marine biolo-
gy club students from Kent Denver School,
a private high school in Colorado's capital
city.
The Hi Def webcam, capable of rotating
360 degrees and tilting to 170 degrees, of-
fers live footage of the underwater life at

org, and is a new tool for scientists to ob-
serve the state of fisheries in the area.
While the Kent Denver School students
enjoyed snorkeling the island's bays and a
cruise aboard Sadie Sea during their recent
six-day trip, the teens spent most of their


time on Love City installing the underwater
camera at the VI. Environmental Research
Station dock at Lameshur Bay after dig-
ging trenches, installing conduit and net-
working the camera feed themselves.
The students are members of Teens40ce-
ans, a marine biology club at Kent Denver
School launched by science teacher Trevor
Mendelow in July 2008.
"I am from the coast myself, and the kids
at Kent Denver School kept asking me what
they could do in Colorado to become in-
volved in programs on the coast," said Men-
delow. "So we came up with the idea to start
a school-wide marine biology club where
kids have a place to collaborate together and
share their passion and interest in the sea."
"We envisioned engaging schools around
the nation and developing ecosystem profiles
to blog about," said Mendelow. "Our idea
was to develop materials and connect them
and then the webcam became involved."

JFLI Summer Camp Offering

Educational Fun, Field Trips

By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
After years of fostering the minds of island youngsters in re-
mote neighborhoods along the south shore, John's Folly Learning
Institute officials are tapping into several youngsters' considerable
talent.
JFLI's annual summer camp will kick off this year on Wednes-
day, July 7, and meet Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3
p.m. until Friday, August 20.
While JFLI executive director Alvis Christian has designed the
summer camp program, camp director Steven White will over-
see day-to-day operations with the help of several former campers
from the John's Folly neighborhoods.
The JFLI teen camp directors will lead campers in activities
covering everything agriculture to marine biology. White, who has
a black belt in Kung Fu, will lead campers in introductory Kung
Fu instruction daily as well.
Other daily activities planned for JFLI's summer camp include
gardening, arts and crafts, sports and fitness. Campers will enjoy
fun weekly field trips to places like the movies, restaurants or
bowling. Guest speakers will share information with campers on
topics ranging from conflict resolution to marine safety.
The camp is open to students between the ages of 7 and 14 and
lunch and afternoon snacks will be provided through the V.I. De-
partment of Education's summer nutrition program.
Registration is $50 per family and each child will receive a camp
T-shirt. To register for JFLI's summer camp, stop by the institute
Monday through Friday until July 2, from noon to 3 p.m. and from
6 to 7:30 p.m. For more information call JFLI at 775-9594.

Commuters riding a barge to St.
John early Monday morning, June
21, started their week off with a
bang.
The 87-foot car barge General
II and a 25-foot fiberglass motor
boat collided about 100 yards off
Red Hook dock on General IH's
way to St. John just after 7 a.m. on
June 21, according to U.S. Coast
Guard spokesperson Ricardo Cas-
trodad.
The 25-foot power boat was
carrying seven passengers en route
to work on St. James Island when
it was struck by the General II,
sending the men overboard and at
least two to the hospital.
The incident was reported to
USCG officials around 7:15 a.m.
who initiated a search and rescue
mission until word came shortly
after 7:20 a.m. from U.S. Cus-
toms and Border Patrol that all of
the men had been recovered from
the water by Good Samaritans, ac-
cording to Castrodad.
"Around 7:15 a.m. we received
a report that there had been a


General II
boat collision in Pillsbury Sound
and that one boat was carrying
seven male passengers who were
thrown into the water," Castrodad
said. "We initiated our search and
rescue, but stood down once we
corroborated with Customs and
Boarder Patrol agents that every-
one had been recovered from the
water."
Two men from the boat were
treated at R.L. Schneider Regional
Medical Center after the incident,
according to hospital spokesper-
son Sam Topp.


One man was treated for a head
injury following the crash and the
other man was seenby doctors later
that day for a shoulder injury. Both
men were treated and released.
The USCG is investigating the
case to determine the cause of the
collision, Castrodad added.
"The case is under investiga-
tion," said the USCG spokesper-
son. "I can't comment on the de-
tails of the investigation until the
investigation is complete."
The men in the small power
boat had reportedly stopped the
vessel to rearrange some tools,
when it was hit by the barge, ac-
cording to a report in a local daily
newspaper.
"The captain of the of the Gen-
eral II said he did not see the boat,
according to [Department of Plan-
ning and Natural Resources As-
sistant Director of Enforcement
Roberto] Tapia, but did see the
men who were thrown from their

Selwyn Powell Recognized as Village Honoree

for Decades of Commitment to St. John Festival


By Andrea Milam
St. John Tradewinds
Since his booth was a longtime
fixture in Love City's Festival
Village, it's only fitting that this
year's Village be named in honor
of Selwyn Powell.
A long-time member of the St.
John Festival Committee, Powell
sold conch, whelks, lobster, fish,
pates and more from his Festival
Village booth for 34 years. He
retired his booth in 2008, a little
less than a year before his beloved
wife, Ruth Powell, passed away.
"We just liked it," Selwyn
Powell said of working side by
side with his wife in their Vil-
lage booth. "Everything you could
think about, we used to have in our
booth. We like to be helping out."
Whether it was participating in
a parade troupe, attending com-
mittee meetings or helping out
with various Festival activities,
Powell could always be counted
on to help out, explained Festival
Committee Chairperson Leona
Smith.
"He's contributed a lot of hours
toward the Festival, and a lot of


Selwyn Powell is this year's St. John Festival Village
honoree.


services too," she said. "He's fun
to work with, always smiling and
gets along well with everyone. He
just comes in there, goes straight
to the fire and starts preparing the
chicken for the different activities
we have."
Powell fondly recalls manning
the concession stand at the Prin-
cess and Queen shows.


"In the evening, we would go
down and help them with frying
chicken for the Queen shows and
everything," he said. "We'd go
down and cook up a storm. We'd
help sell drinks and do every-
thing."
Powell's willingness to help out
extends to his church as well. He
was often involved with whatever


needed done around the Bethany
Moravian Church, he explained.
"I used to clean the yard and
I was on the board, helping with
anything they have to do in the
church," said Powell. "I'm just a
church-going person and liked to
involve myself in everything they
do."
The Village honoree also
showed dedication to his job at
the V.I. Water and Power Author-
ity, where he was employed for 30
years.
Powell does not expect to be as
involved with the 2010 Festival as
he was in past years, but he will
certainly be on hand for the Village
opening on Wednesday, June 30 at
7 p.m., and although he doesn't
have transportation, he will ride to
town with his daughters to enjoy
some of the festivities.
Smith described Powell as a
humble man, and his humility is
evident when talking about being
selected as Village honoree.
"When Leona told me about it,
I told her, 'well, I'll accept it,'"
said Powell. "She picked me, so
I'll go along with them."

St. John Tradewinds
St. John residents are invited to a one-of-a-kind
Grand Ball on Saturday, July 3, at Waterfront Bistro
starting at 9:30 p.m. to help out a Love City citizen
who recently lost one.
Long-time St. John resident Brian Holt, who is the
friendly face most patrons see first at Waterfront Bis-
tro, was diagnosed with testicular cancer about two
months ago.
Holt, who was known to many as "Brian from Par-
adiso" where he previously managed the front of the
house, has already undergone an immediate surgery
to remove one testicle. He recently wrapped up his
first week of chemotherapy treatments, but also dis-
covered that the cancer spread to the lymph nodes in
his abdomen.
Now Holt is facing major surgery in September to
remove his abdominal lymph nodes as well as three
more rounds of chemo.
In addition to the devastating medical news, Holt
was also recently informed that he was just two weeks
shy of being insured when he was diagnosed mean-
ing all of his medical expenses will be out of pocket.
Trying to offset some of Holt's medical expenses,
friends are collecting monetary donations and plan-
ning a Grand Ball. Checks, payable to either Brian
Holt or the St. John Revolving Fund c/o Brian Holt,
can be dropped off or mailed to Connections, P.O.
Box 37, or Waterfront Group LLC, P.O. 8332, both
St. John, VI., 00831.
Also be sure to stop by the Grand Ball on July 3 at
the Waterfront Bistro between 9:30 a.m. and 1 a.m.
and have a ball literally.
Just to show some St. John humor, as well as some
cutting-edge culinary talent, Waterfront Bistro will
be serving up deep fried mac and cheese, mozzarella
balls and other "balls," including Swedish meatballs
- which was unbelievably Holt's first post-op meal.
All wait staff at the restaurant will be graciously
giving all tips to Brian's cause, so come out and drink
a lot and eat some balls!
Also on July 3, beginning at lunch, through dinner
service and until 11 p.m., the Grand Ball silent auc-

Chester "The Mighty
Groover" Brady's one

Marshal and then join
in the fun with his solo

Mighty Groover Pulling Double


Duty at 2010 Festival Parade


- As Marshal and Solo Entry


By Andrea Milami
St. John Tradewinds
Chester "Mighty Groover" Brady will lead this
year's St. John Festival as parade marshal, but don't
expect that to stop him from wowing the crowd with
one of his always unique costumes.
Brady, who was selected by the St. John Festival
Committee in recognition of his decades of participa-
tion in the Festival parade, will complete the parade
circuit as marshal and then start the route over again
decked out in costume, whose theme he is keeping
under wraps.
"I'll do my round as parade marshal, then I'll go
back around and do my own thing so people will get a
double treat," said Brady. "People always want to see
what I'm coming with, because I'm always different.
So I'll wait and let them see what it is."
Brady has participated in Carnival parades on each
of the three U.S. Virgin Islands yearly for more than
four decades, at first as part of his own troupe for
which he made all the costumes and then as an
individual entry, which he's been doing for close to
20 years. He dances down the road in his inventive
homemade costumes to the sounds of his own quelbe
music, which he performs and records for each pa-
rade.
"I'm into the cultural aspect of the festival," said
Brady. "Every year is a different idea; I never do the
same thing twice. I try to pay tribute in a festive way
to those who have done a lot but aren't recognized."
Recent examples of Brady's tributes include fisher-
men in the St. Croix parade, and the fraco man in this
year's St. Thomas parade.
Brady, a St. Thomas native who has lived on St.
John since 1991, has been involved with local Carni-
val celebrations for as long as he can remember. He


started out as a calypsonian, which is where he earned
the nickname "Mighty Groover."
"I started singing calypso and used to party a lot
back in the day," he said. "I always used to be danc-
ing, always in my own groove."
Recently, Brady has shifted his focus from calypso
to singing gospel in an effort to both do more for the
community, and to better himself.
"I go to the senior homes on St. Thomas and St.
John and sing gospel songs that I recorded," said
Brady. "It's good for me because I've done so much
in the field of calypso, so I'm seeing where I could
do better. I'm trying to be more positive among the
people with the music."
Aside from his always unique parade entries, Bra-
dy is well-known on St. John as one of the faces at the
local Post Office, where he has worked for 33 years.
His strong commitment to celebrating all things lo-
cal in Carnivals on each of the three islands made him
an easy choice for parade marshal, explained St. John
Festival Committee Chairperson Leona Smith.
"He always stands out in his solo entry, so that's
something that stuck out in our minds," said Smith.
"Every year you could depend on him to come out
solo, and he's usually one of the first parade entries,
kicking off the festivities."
The Festival Committee looks for someone who is
community-oriented when selecting a parade marshal,
Smith added. The person who is chosen as parade
marshal is given a car to ride in during the parade,
but it seems unlikely that Brady will take advantage
of that perk.
"I told Leona that I don't want a car; I want to be
more to the people," said Brady. "I want to be moving
and greeting the people. It's an honor for me to do
this, and I'd like to represent the island well."

After Almost 20 Years of Vending,


Emily Bratton is Food Fair Honoree


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Painter, sculptor and entre-
preneur Emily Bratton might not
serve up food during St. John Fes-
tival's annual culinary exposition,
but she has been part of the festivi-
ties more almost two decades.
Bratton, known to most Love
City residents by her artist name
"Lolita," has been vending during
Food Fair and the month-long cel-
ebration leading to St. John Fourth
of July Festival for just about 20
years.
For her years of participation,
Bratton is being recognized as this
year's Festival Village Honoree.
Bratton and her partner of 30 years,
Ric Hathaway, own the eclectic
shop Now and Zen in Cruz Bay
and recently opened a new out-
post of the store next to Shipwreck
Landing in Coral Bay.
The two first landed on the
shores of St. John about 23 years
ago after sailing across the At-
lantic Ocean from Spain. But be-
fore making paradise their home,
the duo spent years traveling the
globe.
From riding camels through
India and trekking through the Hi-
malayas, Bratton and Hathaway
have spent time in the far comers
of the Earth. The two have lived in
Australia, Ibiza, Amsterdam and
Greece.
It was during a visit to India that
Bratton struck upon what would
become her career.
"We were traveling around Asia
one time and we met these Europe-
ans who were buying clothes and
sarongs to bring back with them to
sell," said Bratton. "We thought,
'That's a great idea.' So we went
to India and bought a bunch of sa-
rongs and glass beads."


Emily Bratton
2010 Food Fair honoree

"We were living in the Greek
islands then and we went back and
sold the sarongs and jewelry and
that's where this all started," Brat-
ton said.
Since then, Bratton and Hatha-
way have been collecting jewelry,
handicrafts, musical instruments,
objets d'arte and clothing from
across Asia and selling their finds
here on St. John.
"We buy directly from the art-
ists themselves," said Bratton. "We
also deal with clothing designers
and jewelry designers and artisans
who craft these amazing objects."
While their Now and Zen retail
outlet has been attracting a loyal
clientele for nine years, Bratton
makes sure to set up a booth in
the Frank Powell Park each year
to sell her wares during St. John
Festival.
"I love doing this," she said.
"It's really a social event. We all
get to hang out and tell stories and
share jokes."
"It's a really fun atmosphere,"
said Bratton. "I really love every-


one here at the park. Everyone is
an absolute doll."
Bratton recalled fond memories
of fellow park vendors stretching
back all the way to her first time
selling wares during St. John Fes-
tival.
"Back then it was really quiet,"
said Bratton. "There were maybe
three or four us and most of them
are long gone now. But it was re-
ally fun back then and everyone
was just so nice."
It is exactly Bratton's years of
participation that prompted the St.
John Festival Committee to rec-
ognize the long-time resident as
Food Fair honoree.
"We've chosen to honor Emily
Bratton as our Food Fair honoree
this year for her years of sell-
ing arts and crafts from all over
the world," said Leona Smith, St.
John Festival Committee chairper-
son. "She has been participating in
Food Fair for many, many years as
a vendor and is a big part of Festi-
val and we really appreciate her."
Bratton was elated with the
news of her recent honor.
"I really was appreciative of the
honor and it made me really happy
to be selected," she said. "I really
feel like it's an honor."
And the honor is even more poi-
gnant for Bratton because of her
deep love for St. John.
"We just love it here," she said.
"We walk down the hill to Salt
Pond first thing every day and go
for a swim. It's the perfect way to
start the day."
Stop by Bratton's booth in the
Frank Powell Park during the St.
John Festival celebration or check
out either Now and Zen location to
see the eclectic collection of fine
art, jewelry, clothing, local crafts
and more.

The Department of Planning
and Natural Resources announced
on Friday, June 25, that as a result
of the recent rains throughout the
territory, the Division of Envi-
ronmental Protection anticipated
negative environmental impacts
caused by storm-water runoff.


DPNR advised the public to
refrain from using the waters
throughout the territory until these
effects subside. DPNR also advised
parents to instruct their children
to keep away from storm-water-
impacted beaches as well as areas
with manholes and storm-water
flooding. There may be an elevat-


ed health risk to anyone swimming
in storm-water-impacted areas as a
result of increased concentrations
of bacteria.
Storm-water runoff may also
contain contaminants or pollutants
harmful to human health and all
persons should avoid areas of like
guts, puddles and drainage basins.

Mind Yourself Someone Is Watching


Loving the Senior Variety Show


New from New Jersey! As
new locals to this wonderful is-
land, my husband and I want to
do everything. We are very ex-
cited about all of the carnival
events.
We attended the Senior Vari-
ety Show on June 11. We had a
blast and I believe the seniors did
too. The participants included
Alicia Wells, Jane Johannes, Ida
Blyden-Christopher, Ina Lee,
Carol Tuohy, Enid Freeman,
Marleen Boshulte, Rita King,
Elmo Rabsatt, Iris Venzen, Delita
O'Connor and Fidel King.
Seniors from both St. John
and St. Thomas sang, danced,
told jokes and put on a terrific
fashion show. Many other folks
volunteered to help make this


event a fun success.
Even our own Senator-at-
Large Craig Barshinger became
the show's music man by go-
ing home and bringing back and
setting up a sound system. Ap-
parently the original person in
charge of the music was delayed.
Thanks Senator, the music really
does set the mood.
Although the crowd was
small, I encourage more people
to attend next year they will
not be disappointed. My husband
and I laughed, sang, clapped and
were wowed by the beautiful
outfits. My hats off to all who
participated. God Bless and we
look forward to the next show.
Sincerely,
Megan Olson

Only recently has it truly dawned on me how much
and how many people really take stock of what you
do, especially when you're a youth.
It's fascinating how the least suspecting people,
particularly the ones who you just straight up didn't
know existed, are the ones who keep the closest tabs
on you.
The funniest part about this discovery is that you
may have passed these individuals a million times
just in your daily living and had no clue of who they
were, when all the while they knew more about you
than you could even imagine.
Whether it is the person keeping an eye on you
while you take your exercise jog to Caneel Bay, mak-
ing sure you returned safely each time, or the couple
wishing you best of luck on all your endeavors, cheer-
ing you on from behind the scenes, or even the fam-
ily who sends a helping hand and get-well card after
you've been in a car accident you can never be too
certain of who these individuals are and because you
may never know these people (because sometimes
they just might not want to be known).
It is so important that as youth we carry ourselves
with respect. It is essential that we work on our man-


ners especially when interacting with those individu-
als whom we may not know.
A smile can really make the difference and it never
hurts. Very often the success that we strive for is an
endeavor of which multiple persons are vicariously
engaged persons who have tracked our perfor-
mance from the beginning, who have been there for
our missteps and triumphs, individuals who beam
with pride and joy as if we were their pride and joys.
These people have great expectations for us as
soon as they recognize that we have realized our own
potentials.
It is amazing how much people are willing to con-
tribute to your life when they see how serious you are
about it; from the youngest to the eldest look to you
to set an example.
Specifically in a community as intimate as St. John,
it is inevitable that people will already have known of
your actions before you really make them.
So, my charge to all young people, such as myself,
is to be mindful of what you do, how you do it, and
who may be watching.

Leatherback

by beverly melius 4/30/10


by the time I see her she has traveled the world
not in any way that I can know but in the swirl and murk
of a watery womb, in silence, in raging fathoms
floating free until this moment, pouring
all her strength into her heroic flippers, she heaves
herself ashore, all six hundred pounds of her, inch by inch
up and out of weightlessness, across the strange touch of sand
something solid not fluid wings across her keels
earth, sea, air, intrinsic connections tie her to the tides,
to the push and pull of the inexplicable forces of life
moonlight greets her as she breaks the surface, bathes her in tropical softness
flows across her leathery carapace and the mosaic of bones stretched beneath her
each tessera feeling the newness of weight, the solidity of sand
the sounds of the surf vibrate through her as cons of turtle breath labor her up
front flippers dig a pit for her body
back flippers test the texture and temperature of the sand
a hundred million years of knowing slowly begins
alternately paddling away at the wet grains
creating a cavity flipper-deep, then one by one they come
nature's perfection, two inches in diameter, shimmering like
the white petals of a night blooming cereus
sometimes up to eighty eggs, tonight only a dozen, she doesn't
complete the nest, instead she turns back to her pelagic world leaving her eggs
like gifts to eternity, the black sea welcomes her, folds over her
stepping into the tracks she's carved across the sand I hear her turtle voice
singing its tranquility, I begin to dream her turtle dreams, to float along

Letter to St. John Tradewinds


We Need To Tackle Our Energy Crisis Now


It is in the most humble of spirit and kinship that
this correspondence is submitted. With the decision to
navigate through the muddy waters of the never end-
ing financial crises, often we disregard the most basic
of necessities in our community.
I recently received the following announcement
from a very good friend of mine. He starts out by say-
ing "breaking news; my last day in business will be
Monday, April 26, 2010. I must close my business due
to the hard economic situation and also I will lay off
four people." Receiving this message via text broke
my heart!
How can an entrepreneur with such energy and
enthusiasm for life, born and raised in our territory,
with such resolve, quit and give up? Why is this so
important?
This is the beginning of the end for many small
businesses in the VI. Personally, I don't believe many
of our elected officials were very responsive to the
pain and suffering of the people over the past two
years.
Summer of 2008 was when small businesses, se-
nior citizens and the working class had to pay utility
bills that rivaled their rent! Many of our senior citi-
zens had to decide between medicine, food and light.
Senior citizens went without power as if they were
living here 100 years ago. They decided that food and
medicine had to win that personal quest. Now, how
can a society subsist when our utilities take precedent
over medicine, food or rent?
Recently, I spoke to another business owner who
said, "He will close his business permanently if the
LEAC is increased again."
How many other business owners echo the same
pain silently? During the summer of 2008 the cost of
oil rose as high as $147 per barrel and it contributed
to 54 cents per kilowatt. And here we are surrounded
by potential wave, wind and solar power!
I am pleading with our present elected officials to
put aside your insignificant differences, relate to the
pain of the people, and tackle our prolonged energy
crises now!
According to the Executive Director of WAPA
Hugo Hodge Jr., our government, which owns WAPA,
owes WAPA $14 million dollars as of April 28, 2010.
In other words, we owe ourselves go figure!
If we are already behind this large amount of mon-
ey when the price of oil per barrel is hovering at $79


per; what will happen if the price of oil hits $100 per
barrel which is neither impossible nor unlikely.
We're demanding that our elected officials make
our prolonged energy crises a top priority. The ramifi-
cations of not being proactive out-weigh the anguish
that will transpire if you refuse to address this matter
now!
WAPA is likely to return to the PSC summer 2010
and seek another LEAC increase when the price of
oil is expected to hit the $90 per barrel. As long as
the government fails to take care of their financial re-
sponsibilities WAPA continues to be unable to satis-
factorily preserve their equipment and our senior citi-
zens, small businesses and the working class of our
community have to bare the brunt of the outrageous
utility costs.
With the approval of the recent loan in the amount
of 250 million dollars, May 2010, this writer would
advocate for a portion be distributed to WAPA imme-
diately to help cover the cost of the next shipment
of fuel which would reduce the amount that the rate
payer would be billed by HOVENSA through WAPA,
which WAPA would be able to pass those cost sav-
ing measures to the Senior Citizens, small businesses,
and the working men and women of our territory.
My dear friend, who had to close his business after
many years in service, tried on several occasions to
reach out to the elected body of our territory only to
have his cry fall on deaf ears and campaign promises
that are rarely kept.
He and the other four employees are now probably
at the unemployment office filling out the appropriate
documentation so they can join in with the millions of
Americans who receive assistance to maintain there
livelihood.
I say to the elected officials, even if you are not
re-elected, don't you want your name etched in the
mind of your neighbors, family, and most of all your
children as a warrior who fought for the least of thee
or you don't mind being compared to the likes of
common street hustlers or to the cooperate thugs of
Wall Street?
You decide the fate of your family's name.
As a community activist, I must keep this matter
front and center of the territory's priorities and I en-
courage everyone to join me.

bers contacted a scientist in Flori-
da who was working to protect the
Goliath Grouper and thought their
webcam idea could help, explained
Mendelow.
"We realized that being able
to observe these animals in their
natural habitat with underwater
video would serve a number of
purposes," he said. "We thought
people would realize how impor-
tant the resources are and it would
allow students to do independent
research based on their own obser-
vations."
What Teens40ceans didn't ex-
pect was the instant popularity of
its webcams when the project first
went live in early 2009.
"It's passive voyeurism with
uncut and uncensored video which
people love," said Mendelow. "We
thought we'd cut out a niche for
ourselves, install these cameras
and blog and have people engaged
in the content. But it just exploded
from there."
"In January or February of
2009, we realized that what we
thought was going to be 100 stu-
dents and teachers watching this
stuff turned into thousands inter-
ested in this video feed," said the
science teacher.
With funding from a silent spon-
sor, Mendelow and his students
installed that first underwater cam-

era, powered by the sun and wind,
at Bahia Honda State Park in the
Florida Keys in February 2009.
"That first installation re-
ally captured the attention of the
public," said Mendelow. "From
that project we were able to raise
enough money to put in a system
at Dry Tortugas."
Teens40ceans members drew
the attention of Dry Tortugas Na-
tional Park officials and eventually
V.I. National Park Superintendent
Mark Hardgrove heard about the
group, explained Mendelow.
"We were invited to the Bio
Blitz, which is a census of marine
organizations that National Geo-

graphic and the National Park Ser-
vice put on," he said. "We got a lot
of interest in the group from that."
Teens40ceans first visited St.
John last August to determine a
possible location for their next
underwater webcam, Mendelow
added.
"We thought VIERS would be
a great way to establish a relation-
ship with schools here and on St.
Thomas and there was enough
infrastructure out there that stu-
dents could do the installation and
build the equipment entirely them-
selves," he said.
During their August 2009 trip
to Love City, Teens40ceans mem-
bers made a presentation to Friends
of VI. National Park officials. The
non-profit group was so wowed by
the students they donated $12,000
to ensure Teens40ceans' return.
"They gave us a grant to pay
for the equipment and the students
fundraised which paid for us all to
come down," said Mendelow.
The group stayed at VIERS dur-
ing their visit and worked through
their fair share of logistical chal-
lenges before getting the camera
up and running.
"Our plan was to use the net-
work at VIERS but when we got
there we discovered their network
wasn't conducive to how we push
our video feed to our server," said
Mendelow.
With a little help from Sloop
Jones, who realigned the satellite
for the project, the Lameshur Bay
webcam was streaming live by
the time Teens40ceans members
headed back to Colorado.

on Questionable Arrest

Continued from Page 6


help Rudolph, when Tarr became
angry and verbally loud. John-
ston said Callwood came from
another location at the station
and told Tarr he could be arrested
as well.
Detective Vincent, who had
been sequestered outside the
courtroom with Rudolph's wit-
nesses, later testified that she
had observed the entire incident,
and backed up the facts of Call-
wood's testimony.
"He was aggressive and kept
moving toward us, just kept in-
terfering," said Vincent.
Chung showed Vincent a pho-
tograph of a police SUV parked
directly across from "Joe's
Diner," on the same side of the
street where the SUV driven by
the tourist had parked with a
civilian vehicle passing by on the
street.
Chung asked Vincent if it ap-
peared that the vehicle was able
to pass the SUV in the picture.
Vincent responded that it did.
The arresting officer also stated
that, "between six and nine min-
utes passed" from the time he
started to write the ticket to when
he placed Rudolph under arrest.
Attorney Chung was not per-
mitted by the court to enter on
record evidence of day-to-day
parking, by local residents in the
same location where the tour-
ist briefly left his vehicle on the
night Rudolph was arrested.
Chung cited the case of the
Virgin Islands vs. Gillin wherein
an individual's right to question
an officer was found to be guar-
anteed by the First Amendment.
When Chung asked Callwood
if one of his job duties was to
make arrests, he responded that
it was not.
"One of my duties as a police
officer is to make arrests plac-
ing individuals under arrest is
not my duty," Callwood said un-
der further questioning.
The officer then added that his
duty was to work with the com-
munity and be of assistance.
Callwood stated that he had
learned on-the-job that he was
required to include in arrest re-


ports the actual statements he
had heard the individual make.
When Chung asked him why
he had not mentioned in any re-
ports such as the arrest report
and the probable cause fact sheet
- the statements Rudolph had
reportedly shouted at him, Call-
wood cited one instance when he
had written that Rudolph asked
to be locked up.
There was no mention of
Rudolph shouting at the officer
in either the advise of rights or
probable cause documents.
"I had to stop writing the
ticket because he was shouting
and yelling," testified Callwood,
who said he had felt threatened
by Rudolph.
Although Rudolph was ar-
rested on August 1, he was not
advised of his rights until August
3. When Callwood was asked by
Chung if he arrested Rudolph
again on August 3, following a
Probable Cause Hearing, the of-
ficer denied the re-arrest.
He did admit, however, to
placing Rudolph in handcuffs
again when he left the court room
"so he could be processed."
Chung asked Rudolph how
much time passed from the time
he questioned Officer Callwood
until he was placed in handcuffs.
"About 60 to 90 seconds
passed," said Rudolph.
The Love City resident got in-
volved in the incident in the first
place because tourism is his live-
lihood, Rudolph explained under
questioning.
"Harassing tourists is not a
good thing," Rudolph said under
oath. "My livelihood depends on
it."
After a 10 minute recess,
Judge Mackay rendered her ver-
dict. While she found both offi-
cer Callwood and Rudolph to be
credible, Mackay said she found
the contradiction in the time-
lapse cited by the two to be a de-
ciding factor in the case.
"There is grave, reasonable
doubt that Rudolph would inter-
fere with the officer writing the
citation," said Mackay. "Mr. Ru-
dolph is not guilty."

Ferry and Barge Passenger


Screening Set for St. John


Festival Celebrations


St. John Tradewinds
Governor John deJongh said
last week that together with the
federal government, Virgin Islands
law enforcement agencies will
stage random passenger screen-
ing operations for persons travel-
ling by barge or passenger ferry to
participate in the annual Fourth of
July festivities on St. John.
"As the events surrounding the
Fourth of July celebration begin
to take shape, I remind everyone
that the passenger screening ini-
tiative is for everyone's safety,"
said deJongh. "We implemented
the screening on random dates last
year and we had an incident-free
festival on St. John."
"My administration has reached
out to our federal partners who are
more than pleased to assist in this
initiative to keep our islands, and
in this case, the St. John festival
both safe and incident- free," said


the governor.
Last year, a total of 5,024 pas-
sengers were screened at check-
points on St. Thomas.
The screenings will be on ran-
dom days and will occur either at
Red Hook or at the St. John Cruz
Bay docks or at both facilities.
Passengers are encouraged to
have a form of identification on
their person and to comply with
the directions of the security of-
ficers to avoid any delays in the
screening and boarding process.
Agencies participating in the
screening will include: VI. Po-
lice Department; law enforce-
ment teams from the Department
of Planning and Natural Resourc-
es and the V.I. Port Authority;
VITEMA; Immigration and Cus-
toms Enforcement; Customs and
Border Protection; Transportation
Security Administration; and Fed-
eral Air Marshal Service.

Streaming Live from Lameshur Bay

Denver teens install underwater camera at VIERS dock

Continued from Page 16


The feed is testament to the stu-
dents' vision and hard work. Teens-
4Oceans members built a custom
stainless steel and glass housing to ac-
commodate the camera to install un-
derwater. The students also installed
high powered underwater LED light-
ing, allowing for night time viewing.
"We have a schedule on the web-
site when the light will be on," said
Mendelow. "We don't want to run the
lights all the time, so people can fol-
low the schedule for night-time view-
ing."
Although Teens40ceans members
returned to Colorado last week, the
group plans to return to Love City to
install additional underwater cameras
at Trunk Bay and Hurricane Hole,
Mendelow explained.
"During the second phase of the
project, we hope to put a webcam in
Trunk Bay just between the two off-
shore cays," he said. "A third goal of
ours is to install a webcam in Hurri-
cane Hole to record the amazing re-
sources out there."
Once the webcams are installed
in V.I. National Park and Underwa-
ter Monument waters, Teens40ceans
plan is to stream the footage live at
the VINP's visitors' center, Mende-
low added.
"The idea is to put a high definition
monitor in the VINP visitor's center
where visitors who couldn't snorkel
the trail would still be able to observe
what is in the water," he said.
Having underwater webcams in
several locations around St. John
would highlight the island's rich and
diverse natural resources, Mendelow
explained.
"There are such unique ecosystems
here, we think it would provide an in-
credible opportunity for people to ap-
preciate the rich diversity right here
on St. John," said the Teens40ceans
director.
If funding come through as expect-
ed for the group, Teens40ceans could
be back installing underwater cam-
eras at Trunk Bay and Hurricane Hole
within a year, Mendelow added.
Check out Teens40cean's webcam
of Lameshur Bay and keep up to date
with the group's latest activities at

By Malik Stevens St. John Tradewinds On Saturday, June 26, St. John glamour and poise than usual as four beautiful young ladies took to the stage vying to be the next Miss St. John Festival Queen 2010. Even though the pageant started an hour later than planned and the weeks-worth of continuous rainmany excited spectators to watch Jah’Vena Nisbett, Shant Monsanto-Weeks, Abigail Hyndman and Nanyamka Cagan display their grace and beauty as they vied for the honor of representing the island as 2010 Miss St. John Festival Queen. The girls were judged in six categories: a personal interview conducted prior to the show; introduction speech; swimwear; inter national costume; evening wear; and last but not least, question and answer. pearance wearing festive yellow and turquoise carnival attire with head pieces adorned with yellow feathers as they danced onto the stage to deliver their introductory speeches. They were indeed a “kaleido scope of beauty and fashion” as Contestant #4 Cagan put it. After bidding the crowd a warm welcome and delivering their speeches, the ladies were joined by the St. John Committee Dancers. The group continued to keep the beat alive, wowing the crowd with their creative movements in a dance choreographed by Lester Warner. After listening to the contagious rhythms of Spectrum Band, which played between each segment of the show, the pageant continued as the girls individually returned to the stage for the swimwear segment of the show. Contestant #1 Nisbett came out in a bi-color sundress which she removed to reveal a pink crystal sequenced monokini, which consisted of a pink bodice paired with a patterned bottom in vibrant or ange, beige, gold and brown. Contestant #2 Monsanto-Weeks came out sporting a turquoise monokini, which was connected by a gold sequence piece of material across her abdomen representing upper left chest and right waist. Contestant #3 Hyndman also wore a colorfully patterned monokini. With a base color of deep for est green, the swimsuit featured a modern pattern mixed with orange, yellow, black, purple and green. Contestant #4 Nanyamka donned a pink one-piece, embel lished with crystals which one spectator said “she was born to wear.” The swimwear segment was followed by the International Costume segment. With each girl representing a different country and culture of people, the category was truly a highlight of the night. Nisbett portrayed a Native American. Wearing a yellow, black and gold tunic-style dress, Nisbett entered the stage to the sounds of a historical reading about the Iroquois Indian tribe, before enticing the crowd with a Native Americaninspired dance. Monsanto-Weeks portrayed was a yellow two-piece ensemble adorned with leaves and a yellow headpiece which held a original hand-made Toucan bird. She then broke out into the Samba which she dedicated to the African slaves’ Contestant #3 Hyndman was a crowd-pleaser as she came out in a costume that represented the Virgin Island and the V.I. National Park.

St. John Tradewinds Happy St. John Festival to one and all! Whether you prefer to call it Carnival or Festival, whether you prefer to visit in the Village or dance in the parade, whether you look forward to the shows or the there is something for everyone at this festive time of year. Of special note is the St. John Children’s Carnival Village, originated by the St. John Community Foundation and the St. John Yacht Club. The tradition is carried for ward by St. John Rotary, which is always accepting volunteers to help run this wonderful event, unique to St. John, where children can play for hours with just a pocketful of change. Bring your children and maybe even volunteer to help out with the games one night. The adults have as much fun as the children! This is a beginning, but we want and deserve so much more for our children. Please lend your voice and your time to the cause by contacting me. I hope to hear from you by phone or email, or perhaps we’ll see each other out in Carnival Village. I and my staff wish you a safe, relaxing and festive St. John Car nival, Emancipation Day, and Independence Day! I have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that I witnessed the dedication School. It is a beautiful athletic football, ultimate Frisbee, even pole vaulting. Now the bad news. Where are the equivalent facilities at our public schools? Where is the overdue Kean High School track, funded by a $2.5 million appropriation from the legislature? If this interests you, call me at 693-8061, or email to senator@ barshinger.net. I close by acknowledging that the Department of Public Works is now completing the sidewalk from the ferry dock to Ivanna Eudora Kean High School. When school begins in the Fall, students will walk in relative safety on a proper sidewalk. 4 St. John Tradewinds, June 28-July 4, 2010 Experienced . Personalized . Professional .

The evening wear segment followed and was all around jawdropping. Each girl wore gowns which complimented their bodies exquisitely. Contestant #1 Nisbett wore an emerald and silver masterpiece which featured a silver beaded neckline and short train that trailed behind her. Monsanto-Weeks wore an eyecatching yellow dress embellished with sequences which revealed her slender lines. Contestant #3 Hyndman dared to don a bold and “unyielding” burgundy colored dress featuring crystals which gave off an illusion of rain drops. The bottom of the gown was accented with small wear segment with a soft babyblue one strap gown with a dramatic slit,which she complimented with dangling chandelier earrings. For the question and answer segment of the program, the four young ladies were all asked, “As Miss. St. John Festival Queen what do they feel the role should be and why?” All four girls gave similar answers responding by saying they would be role models, ambassadors and representatives of the St. John people, but for Contestant #4, Cagan, that was not enough. After saying she felt Miss St. John should be an ambassador and roles she felt that the Queen should Cagan continued by saying that as the Queen, her role should also include greeting tourists on the St. John dock, volunteering at the students at all the St. John schools, while being an avid participant in all other community events. There is no doubt that the judges had a hard time with their jobs that giving their speeches and modeling their one-of-a-kind fashion pieces. After the scores were tallied Master of Ceremonies Peter Ottley, announced Contestant #1 Nisbett as Miss Cooperative; Contestant #4 Cagan as Miss Congeniality, Winner of Best Evening Wear, and Miss Intellect; Contestant #3 Hyndman as Miss Photogenic; Winner of Best International Wear and First runner up. With all the category winners revealed, the crowd grew quiet with anticipation and excitement, until Contestant #2 MonsantoWeeks was announced as Miss St. John Festival Queen 2010.

Environmental Research Station dock at Lameshur Bay — after digging trenches, installing conduit and networking the camera feed themselves. The students are members of Teens4Oceans, a marine biology club at Kent Denver School launched by science teacher Trevor Mendelow in July 2008. “I am from the coast myself, and the kids at Kent Denver School kept asking me what they could do in Colorado to become involved in programs on the coast,” said Mendelow. “So we came up with the idea to start a school-wide marine biology club where kids have a place to collaborate together and share their passion and interest in the sea.” “We envisioned engaging schools around to blog about,” said Mendelow. “Our idea was to develop materials and connect them and then the webcam became involved.” Mendelow and the Teens4Oceans mem -St. John Tradewinds, June 28-July 4, 2010 7 Continued on Page 16Streaming Live from Lameshur BayDenver teens install underwater camera at VIERS dockSt. John Tradewinds News Photo by Steve Simonsen PhotographyA snorkeler checks out Teens4Ocean’s underwater camera at Lameshur.

A long-time member of the St. John Festival Committee, Powell pates and more from his Festival Village booth for 34 years. He retired his booth in 2008, a little less than a year before his beloved wife, Ruth Powell, passed away. “We just liked it,” Selwyn Powell said of working side by side with his wife in their Village booth. “Everything you could think about, we used to have in our booth. We like to be helping out.” Whether it was participating in a parade troupe, attending committee meetings or helping out with various Festival activities, Powell could always be counted on to help out, explained Festival Committee Chairperson Leona Smith. “He’s contributed a lot of hours toward the Festival, and a lot of services too,” she said. “He’s fun to work with, always smiling and gets along well with everyone. He just comes in there, goes straight chicken for the different activities we have.” Powell fondly recalls manning the concession stand at the Princess and Queen shows. “In the evening, we would go down and help them with frying chicken for the Queen shows and everything,” he said. “We’d go down and cook up a storm. We’d help sell drinks and do everything.” Powell’s willingness to help out extends to his church as well. He was often involved with whatever needed done around the Bethany Moravian Church, he explained. “I used to clean the yard and I was on the board, helping with anything they have to do in the church,” said Powell. “I’m just a church-going person and liked to involve myself in everything they do.” The Village honoree also showed dedication to his job at the V.I. Water and Power Author ity, where he was employed for 30 years. Powell does not expect to be as involved with the 2010 Festival as he was in past years, but he will certainly be on hand for the Village opening on Wednesday, June 30 at 7 p.m., and although he doesn’t have transportation, he will ride to town with his daughters to enjoy some of the festivities. Smith described Powell as a humble man, and his humility is evident when talking about being selected as Village honoree. “When Leona told me about it, said Powell. “She picked me, so I’ll go along with them.”St. John Tradewinds, June 28-July 4, 2010 9 St. John Tradewinds News Photo by Jaime ElliottSelwyn Powell is this year’s St. John Festival Village honoree.Selwyn Powell Recognized as Village Honoree for Decades of Commitment to St. John Festival WR-FitnessClub TW 6.09.indd 1 6/10/09 12:42:29 PM GHS Alumni Party Set for July 3 at Hinds RestaurantSt. John Tradewinds its second Alumni Party at on Saturday, July 3, starting at 8:30 p.m. Invitations are open to alum Bay School, and Pine Peace School.

By Andrea Milam St. John Tradewinds year’s St. John Festival as parade marshal, but don’t expect that to stop him from wowing the crowd with one of his always unique costumes. Brady, who was selected by the St. John Festival Committee in recognition of his decades of participa tion in the Festival parade, will complete the parade circuit as marshal and then start the route over again decked out in costume, whose theme he is keeping under wraps. “I’ll do my round as parade marshal, then I’ll go back around and do my own thing so people will get a double treat,” said Brady. “People always want to see what I’m coming with, because I’m always different. So I’ll wait and let them see what it is.” Brady has participated in Carnival parades on each of the three U.S. Virgin Islands yearly for more than which he made all the costumes — and then as an individual entry, which he’s been doing for close to 20 years. He dances down the road in his inventive homemade costumes to the sounds of his own quelbe music, which he performs and records for each parade. “I’m into the cultural aspect of the festival,” said Brady. “Every year is a different idea; I never do the same thing twice. I try to pay tribute in a festive way men in the St. Croix parade, and the fraco man in this year’s St. Thomas parade. Brady, a St. Thomas native who has lived on St. John since 1991, has been involved with local Carnival celebrations for as long as he can remember. He started out as a calypsonian, which is where he earned “I started singing calypso and used to party a lot back in the day,” he said. “I always used to be dancing, always in my own groove.” Recently, Brady has shifted his focus from calypso to singing gospel in an effort to both do more for the community, and to better himself. “I go to the senior homes on St. Thomas and St. John and sing gospel songs that I recorded,” said Brady. “It’s good for me because I’ve done so much do better. I’m trying to be more positive among the people with the music.” Aside from his always unique parade entries, Brady is well-known on St. John as one of the faces at the His strong commitment to celebrating all things local in Carnivals on each of the three islands made him an easy choice for parade marshal, explained St. John Festival Committee Chairperson Leona Smith. “He always stands out in his solo entry, so that’s something that stuck out in our minds,” said Smith. “Every year you could depend on him to come out kicking off the festivities.” The Festival Committee looks for someone who is community-oriented when selecting a parade marshal, Smith added. The person who is chosen as parade marshal is given a car to ride in during the parade, but it seems unlikely that Brady will take advantage of that perk. “I told Leona that I don’t want a car; I want to be more to the people,” said Brady. “I want to be moving and greeting the people. It’s an honor for me to do this, and I’d like to represent the island well.” St. John Tradewinds, June 28-July 4, 2010 11 Mighty Groover Pulling Double Duty at 2010 Festival Parade — As Marshal and Solo Entry NEXT DEADLINE: JUL 1Chester “The Mighty Groover” Brady’s one the street during the 2009 St. John Festival Parade.

Bratton, known to most Love City residents by her artist name “Lolita,” has been vending during Food Fair and the month-long celebration leading to St. John Fourth of July Festival for just about 20 years.

But before making paradise their home, the duo spent years traveling the globe. From riding camels through India and trekking through the Himalayas, Bratton and Hathaway have spent time in the far corners of the Earth. The two have lived in It was during a visit to India that Bratton struck upon what would become her career. “We were traveling around Asia one time and we met these Europeans who were buying clothes and sarongs to bring back with them to sell,” said Bratton. “We thought, to India and bought a bunch of sarongs and glass beads.” islands then and we went back and sold the sarongs and jewelry and that’s where this all started,” Bratton said. Since then, Bratton and Hathaway have been collecting jewelry, handicrafts, musical instruments, objets d’arte and clothing from here on St. John. “We buy directly from the artists themselves,” said Bratton. “We also deal with clothing designers and jewelry designers and artisans While their Now and Zen retail outlet has been attracting a loyal clientele for nine years, Bratton makes sure to set up a booth in the Frank Powell Park each year to sell her wares during St. John Festival. “I love doing this,” she said. “It’s really a social event. We all get to hang out and tell stories and share jokes.” “It’s a really fun atmosphere,” said Bratton. “I really love everyone here at the park. Everyone is an absolute doll.” Bratton recalled fond memories of fellow park vendors stretching selling wares during St. John Festival. “Back then it was really quiet,” said Bratton. “There were maybe three or four us and most of them are long gone now. But it was really fun back then and everyone was just so nice.” It is exactly Bratton’s years of participation that prompted the St. John Festival Committee to recFood Fair honoree. “We’ve chosen to honor Emily Bratton as our Food Fair honoree this year for her years of selling arts and crafts from all over the world,” said Leona Smith, St. John Festival Committee chairper son. “She has been participating in Food Fair for many, many years as a vendor and is a big part of Festival and we really appreciate her.” Bratton was elated with the news of her recent honor. “I really was appreciative of the honor and it made me really happy to be selected,” she said. “I really feel like it’s an honor.” And the honor is even more poignant for Bratton because of her deep love for St. John. “We just love it here,” she said. “We walk down the hill to Salt for a swim.

It’s fascinating how the least suspecting people, particularly the ones who you just straight up didn’t know existed, are the ones who keep the closest tabs on you. The funniest part about this discovery is that you may have passed these individuals a million times just in your daily living and had no clue of who they were, when all the while they knew more about you than you could even imagine. Whether it is the person keeping an eye on you while you take your exercise jog to Caneel Bay, making sure you returned safely each time, or the couple wishing you best of luck on all your endeavors, cheer ing you on from behind the scenes, or even the family who sends a helping hand and get-well card after you’ve been in a car accident — you can never be too certain of who these individuals are and because you may never know these people (because sometimes they just might not want to be known). It is so important that as youth we carry ourselves with respect. It is essential that we work on our manners especially when interacting with those individu als whom we may not know. A smile can really make the difference and it never hurts. Very often the success that we strive for is an endeavor of which multiple persons are vicariously engaged — persons who have tracked our perfor mance from the beginning, who have been there for our missteps and triumphs, individuals who beam with pride and joy as if we were their pride and joys. These people have great expectations for us as potentials. tribute to your life when they see how serious you are about it; from the youngest to the eldest look to you to set an example. it is inevitable that people will already have known of your actions before you really make them. So, my charge to all young people, such as myself, is to be mindful of what you do, how you do it, and who may be watching. Jessica SamuelMind Y ourself — Someone Is Watching Loving the Senior Variety ShowNew from New Jersey! As new locals to this wonderful island, my husband and I want to do everything. We are very excited about all of the carnival events. We attended the Senior Variety Show on June 11. We had a blast and I believe the seniors did too. The participants included Alicia Wells, Jane Johannes, Ida Blyden-Christopher, Ina Lee, Carol Tuohy, Enid Freeman, Marleen Boshulte, Rita King, O’Connor and Fidel King. Seniors from both St. John and St. Thomas sang, danced, fashion show. Many other folks volunteered to help make this event a fun success. Even our own Senator-atLarge Craig Barshinger became the show’s music man by going home and bringing back and setting up a sound system. Apparently the original person in charge of the music was delayed. Thanks Senator, the music really does set the mood. Although the crowd was small, I encourage more people to attend next year — they will not be disappointed. My husband and I laughed, sang, clapped and were wowed by the beautiful look forward to the next show. Sincerely, Megan Olson

It is in the most humble of spirit and kinship that this correspondence is submitted. With the decision to navigate through the muddy waters of the never endof necessities in our community. I recently received the following announcement from a very good friend of mine. He starts out by saying “breaking news; my last day in business will be Monday, April 26, 2010. I must close my business due to the hard economic situation and also I will lay off four people.” Receiving this message via text broke my heart! How can an entrepreneur with such energy and enthusiasm for life, born and raised in our territory, with such resolve, quit and give up? Why is this so important? This is the beginning of the end for many small businesses in the V.I. Personally, I don’t believe many pain and suffering of the people over the past two years. Summer of 2008 was when small businesses, sebills that rivaled their rent! Many of our senior citi living here 100 years ago. They decided that food and medicine had to win that personal quest. Now, how can a society subsist when our utilities take precedent over medicine, food or rent? Recently, I spoke to another business owner who said, “He will close his business permanently if the LEAC is increased again.” How many other business owners echo the same pain silently? During the summer of 2008 the cost of oil rose as high as $147 per barrel and it contributed to 54 cents per kilowatt. And here we are surrounded by potential wave, wind and solar power! pain of the people, and tackle our prolonged energy crises now! According to the Executive Director of WAPA Hugo Hodge Jr., our government, which owns WAPA, owes WAPA $14 million dollars as of April 28, 2010. If we are already behind this large amount of money when the price of oil per barrel is hovering at $79 per; what will happen if the price of oil hits $100 per barrel which is neither impossible nor unlikely. cations of not being proactive out-weigh the anguish that will transpire if you refuse to address this matter now! WAPA is likely to return to the PSC summer 2010 and seek another LEAC increase when the price of oil is expected to hit the $90 per barrel. As long as sponsibilities WAPA continues to be unable to satisfactorily preserve their equipment and our senior citi community have to bare the brunt of the outrageous utility costs. With the approval of the recent loan in the amount of 250 million dollars, May 2010, this writer would advocate for a portion be distributed to WAPA imme diately to help cover the cost of the next shipment of fuel which would reduce the amount that the rate payer would be billed by HOVENSA through WAPA, which WAPA would be able to pass those cost savand the working men and women of our territory. My dear friend, who had to close his business after many years in service, tried on several occasions to reach out to the elected body of our territory only to have his cry fall on deaf ears and campaign promises that are rarely kept. He and the other four employees are now probably documentation so they can join in with the millions of Americans who receive assistance to maintain there livelihood. re-elected, don’t you want your name etched in the mind of your neighbors, family, and most of all your children as a warrior who fought for the least of thee or you don’t mind being compared to the likes of common street hustlers or to the cooperate thugs of Wall Street? You decide the fate of your family’s name. As a community activist, I must keep this matter front and center of the territory’s priorities and I encourage everyone to join me.

But it just exploded from there.” “In January or February of thought was going to be 100 students and teachers watching this stuff turned into thousands inter ested in this video feed,” said the science teacher. With funding from a silent sponsor, Mendelow and his students help Rudolph, when Tarr became angry and verbally loud. Johnston said Callwood came from another location at the station and told Tarr he could be arrested as well. Detective Vincent, who had been sequestered outside the courtroom with Rudolph’s withad observed the entire incident, and backed up the facts of Callwood’s testimony. “He was aggressive and kept moving toward us, just kept interfering,” said Vincent. Chung showed Vincent a photograph of a police SUV parked directly across from “Joe’s Diner,” on the same side of the street where the SUV driven by the tourist had parked — with a civilian vehicle passing by on the street. Chung asked Vincent if it appeared that the vehicle was able to pass the SUV in the picture. Vincent responded that it did. that, “between six and nine minutes passed” from the time he started to write the ticket to when he placed Rudolph under arrest. Attorney Chung was not per mitted by the court to enter on record evidence of day-to-day parking, by local residents in the same location where the tour night Rudolph was arrested. Chung cited the case of the an individual’s right to question anteed by the First Amendment. When Chung asked Callwood if one of his job duties was to make arrests, he responded that it was not. “One of my duties as a police ing individuals under arrest is not my duty,” Callwood said under further questioning. duty was to work with the community and be of assistance. Callwood stated that he had learned on-the-job that he was required to include in arrest reports the actual statements he had heard the individual make. When Chung asked him why he had not mentioned in any reports — such as the arrest report and the probable cause fact sheet — the statements Rudolph had reportedly shouted at him, Callwood cited one instance when he had written that Rudolph asked to be locked up. There was no mention of in either the advise of rights or probable cause documents. “I had to stop writing the ticket because he was shouting who said he had felt threatened by Rudolph. Although Rudolph was ar rested on August 1, he was not advised of his rights until August 3. When Callwood was asked by Chung if he arrested Rudolph again on August 3, following a Probable Cause Hearing, the ofHe did admit, however, to placing Rudolph in handcuffs again when he left the court room “so he could be processed.” Chung asked Rudolph how much time passed from the time until he was placed in handcuffs. “About 60 to 90 seconds passed,” said Rudolph. The Love City resident got inplace because tourism is his livelihood, Rudolph explained under questioning. “Harassing tourists is not a good thing,” Rudolph said under oath. “My livelihood depends on it.” After a 10 minute recess, Judge Mackay rendered her ver cer Callwood and Rudolph to be credible, Mackay said she found the contradiction in the timelapse cited by the two to be a deciding factor in the case. “There is grave, reasonable doubt that Rudolph would inter citation,” said Mackay. “Mr. Rudolph is not guilty.”16 St. John Tradewinds, June 28-July 4, 2010 Continued from Page 7Crossword Answers — Puzzle on Page 18 Streaming Live from Lameshur Bay – Teens 4 Ocean St. John Resident Cleared on Questionable ArrestContinued from Page 6 era, powered by the sun and wind, at Bahia Honda State Park in the Florida Keys in February 2009. ally captured the attention of the public,” said Mendelow. “From that project we were able to raise enough money to put in a system at Dry Tortugas.” Teens4Oceans members drew the attention of Dry Tortugas NaV.I.

During their August 2009 trip to Love City, Teens4Oceans mem bers made a presentation to Friends the students they donated $12,000 to ensure Teens4Oceans’ return. “They gave us a grant to pay for the equipment and the students fundraised which paid for us all to come down,” said Mendelow. The group stayed at VIERS dur ing their visit and worked through their fair share of logistical challenges before getting the camera up and running. “Our plan was to use the network at VIERS but when we got there we discovered their network wasn’t conducive to how we push our video feed to our server,” said Mendelow.

24 St. John Tradewinds, June 28-July 4, 2010 Continued from Page 16 The feed is testament to the students’ vision and hard work. Teens4Oceans members built a custom stainless steel and glass housing to accommodate the camera to install underwater. The students also installed high powered underwater LED light ing, allowing for night time viewing. “We have a schedule on the website when the light will be on,” said Mendelow. “We don’t want to run the lights all the time, so people can follow the schedule for night-time viewing.” Although Teens4Oceans members returned to Colorado last week, the group plans to return to Love City to install additional underwater cameras at Trunk Bay and Hurricane Hole, Mendelow explained. “During the second phase of the project, we hope to put a webcam in Trunk Bay just between the two offshore cays,” he said. “A third goal of ours is to install a webcam in Hurrisources out there.” Once the webcams are installed in V.I. National Park and Underwater Monument waters, Teens4Oceans plan is to stream the footage live at the VINP’s visitors’ center, Mendelow added. monitor in the VINP visitor’s center where visitors who couldn’t snorkel the trail would still be able to observe what is in the water,” he said. Having underwater webcams in several locations around St. John would highlight the island’s rich and diverse natural resources, Mendelow explained. “There are such unique ecosystems here, we think it would provide an incredible opportunity for people to appreciate the rich diversity right here on St. John,” said the Teens4Oceans director. If funding come through as expect ed for the group, Teens4Oceans could be back installing underwater cam eras at Trunk Bay and Hurricane Hole within a year, Mendelow added.
