ARROW

"AIMED

AT THE

STARS"9
St. John designer and artist
George Hollander created
another one-of-a-kind light
sculpture atop his Chicago Hill
home for the 2010/11 holiday
season, called "Arrow."
Made from found materials
like drainage pipe, scrap
rebar, plexiglass and 1/4"
plywood, the sculpture stands
nine feet tall and looks like a
missile (he did make an arrow
head, hence the name).
"It's aimed at the stars
with love and powered with a
propellent of light," Hollander
said about the sculpture. "This
is the year to reach for the
heavens and create."
For those interested, it can
be seen from the area near
Shipwreck Landing in Coral
Bay - just look up!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Residents Urged To Secure Homes


St. John Tradewinds
Police on St. John are investi-
gating several recent residential
burglaries. The police investiga-
tion indicates that one person may
be responsible for these break-ins.
In one incident, police are inves-
tigating a first degree burglary that
occurred around 2 a.m. Tuesday,
December 28, in Estate Enighed.
The suspect burglarized homes


while people were asleep, accord-
ing to the police reports. The sus-
pect would then search for cash.
Unfortunately, in one instance, a
male victim awoke and was robbed
at knifepoint of his cash. Two oth-
er people in the home were awak-
ened by the victim's cries for help
and were threatened by the suspect
before he left the area.
"We want to make sure resi-


Three Suspects Arrested


St. John Tradewinds
Police on St. John patrolling
Cruz Bay arrested three suspects
on charges including drugs and
aggravated assault and battery on
a police officer. The arrests were
made shortly after midnight Thurs-
day, December 30.
According to the preliminary


police reports, Joshua Germaine,
28, was charged with possession of
a controlled substance with intent
to distribute after officers found
him with a dime bag of marijuana.
Irvin and Kasiem Marsh, both
20 years old, were charged with
delaying and obstructing an officer
discharging his duties and resisting


dents on St. John lock and secure
their doors, windows and other
places where a criminal can gain
access," said St. John Chief Dar-
ren Foy. "It's an unfortunate situa-
tion that these incidents happened,
but we want to make sure every-
one is aware and focused on their
safety."
Anyone having information
should call 1-800-222-TIPS.

arrest for interfering with the offi-
cers who were making the arrests.
Irvin Marsh was also charged with
aggravated assault and battery for
pushing an officer.
Bail for all suspects was set at
$12,000 combined and they were
remanded to the Bureau of Correc-
tions pending further court action.


VIPD and DPNR Commissioners Retire


St. John Tradewinds
Government House confirmed
last week the retirement of Police
Commissioner Novelle E. Fran-
cis, Jr. and Planning and Natural
Resources Commissioner Robert
Mathes from government service
at the end of 2010.
"Although I understand and
respect the decision of Commis-
sioner Francis and that of Com-
missioner Mathes to retire at this
time, their departures will be a
significant loss to my administra-
tion," said Governor John P. de-
Jongh, Jr. "I wish them each health
and success in what I trust will be
many years of retirement. Each


of the retiring commissioners has
served the people of the territory
with distinction for many years
and they each deserve our thanks
and appreciation."
"Commissioner Francis became
Police Commissioner at a particu-
larly difficult time and through his
leadership, changes were made
which facilitated the department's
recent success in attacking the
criminal element head on," de-
Jongh added.
During the de Jongh-Francis
administration, Francis has served
as Assistant Police Commissioner
and, beginning in 2009, as Police
Commissioner. Francis will con-


tinue to serve as Police Commis-
sioner while a search is conducted
for his replacement.
"Bob Mathes has been a per-
sonal friend of mine and my
family for many years as well as
serving as member of my cabinet
since 2007," said deJongh. "I ap-
preciate the many contributions he
has made to the people of the Vir-
gin Islands since taking the helm
at DPNR four years ago and in
his years of public service before
then."
Assistant DPNR Commissioner
Carmelo Rivera will serve as act-
ing commissioner effective Janu-
ary 1.

Island Youth Celebrate New Year's Eve Safely with Sisterhood


St. John Tradewinds
As millions penned in to Times
Square in New York City on New
Year's Eve to watch the ball drop
and ring in 2011, closer to home 38
youth gathered for a fun and safe
night with the Sisterhood/Brother-
hood Agenda at the Department of
Sports and Recreation Center in
Cruz Bay.
Coordinated with schools in the
St. John school district, VI. Po-
lice Department, the and St. John

terhood/Brotherhood Agenda New
Year's Eve Youth Extravaganza
was a unique event that offered
a safe space, allowing parents to
drop off their children to celebrate
the new year in a fun and safe
way.
The first year was a success-
ful one for Sisterhood Agenda.
Sponsored by local businesses on
St. John and staffed by volunteers,
the Youth Extravaganza was more
than a one-day event. It is a local-
ly-based nonprofit initiative that
will continue throughout the year.

together for the kids. "The vibes
were right and it was so much
fun. Now that we opened the new
year in such a positive way, we are
looking forward to giving them ef-
fective and coordinated youth ser-
vices throughout the year."


The event included admission
to the dance party, a safe and fun
environment, food, beverages in-
cluding a sparkling apple cider
New Year's toast at midnight and
glow-in-the-dark fun toy.
Youth were also able to regis-
ter for manhood and womanhood

St. John Tradewinds
The film plays out in the world's largest garbage
dump, but Waste Land carries an inspiring message
that is sure to resonate with all of the recycle-minded,
art lovers abound on St. John.
The award-winning documentary's director Lucy
Walker will be on island to kick off St. John Film So-
ciety's Winter 2011 Free Film Series with her January
11 film screening.
"It is an honor for us to be hosting a filmmaker
of this caliber," said Rea McQueen Roberts, St. John
Film's director.
With approximately 20 awards under its belt this
year - including Sundance Film Festival's Audience
Award for Best World Cinema Documentary and the
Berlin Film Festival's Panorama Audience Award for
Best Film and Amnesty International Human Rights
Film Award -film lovers can look forward to Waste
Land and Walker making their St. John debut.
Filmed over nearly three years, Waste Land tells
the uplifting story of Vik Muniz, the Brooklyn-based,
Brazilian native artist, and a group of "catadores"
(self-designated pickers of recyclable materials) as
they find a way out of Jardim Gramacho, the world's
largest garbage dump located on the outskirts of Rio
de Janeiro, into the most prestigious auction house in
London.
First Winner at Sundance and Berlin
The documentary - the first film ever to win Au-
dience Awards at both Sundance and Berlin Interna-
tional Film Festivals and featuring music by Moby
- follows Muniz as he collaborates with the catado-
res to create transformative art that reveals both the
dignity and despair of these inspiring individuals as
they begin to re-imagine their lives.
Andrea Leland, St. John Film Society's program
director who selects its films and serves as its liaison
with visiting filmmakers, said she was immediately
interested in Waste Land.
"I heard that the film was an uplifting story about
Vik Muniz, a Brazilian artist, who was working with
people in a garbage dump," Leland said. "This film
deals with recycling and art and presents it in a whole
new way - it could be very inspiring to our commu-
nity who has a serious interest in recycling."
Walker is best known for directing four feature
documentary films - Devil's Playground (2002),
Blindsight (2006) and the two award-winning films
currently showing in theaters across the country,
Countdown to Zero (2010) and Waste Land (2010).
"I'm excited to have a professional award-winning
filmmaker come to St. John, and I think people will
find it really interesting to hear what she has to say
about her art and her craft," Leland said.
Through the National Endowment for the Arts
grant and St. John Film's members and strong com-
munity supporters, the society has organized on-is-
land visits from six well-renowned filmmakers from
April 2010 to April 2011. With Walker heading up St.
John Film's winter film screenings, the society has
also lined up Lisa Merton and Alan Dater of Taking

Filmed over three years, Waste Land
tells the story of the world's largest garbage
dump on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro,
Brazil, and creating art from refuse.

"We have been showing independent films through-
out the community - both in Coral Bay and in Cruz
Bay for two years now as part of our free independent
film series," said McQueen Roberts. "We are trying to
fill a niche - both in the entertainment category and
also by bringing meaningful content to St. John. This
is providing a different venue for St. John - brining
good, quality, independent films to the community
has been our goal all along."
Everyone is encouraged to attend the free screen-
ing of Waste Land beginning at 7 p.m. on Tuesday,
Jan. 11, at Sputnik's in Coral Bay. Reservations are
required to attend a pre-fix dinner with the filmmaker
starting at 6 p.m., and those interested are asked to
email McQueen Roberts at info@stjohnfilm.com.
"We are encouraging people to come before the
show to have dinner with the filmmaker," McQueen
Roberts said. "It will be by reservation and it will be
pre-fix, including Julietta's delicious roti, a side dish
and dessert."
St. John Film's screenings typically draw between
50 and 100 people so bringing along folding chairs is
encouraged.
"We hope to see familiar and new faces in the audi-
ence," McQueen Roberts said.

2010 Flavors Best Appetizer:

East West Catering Blends French Technique

with Asian Flavors for Mouthwatering Dishes


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
With its eclectic and mouth-
watering blend of Pacific Rim
and Caribbean dishes, East West
Catering has built a loyal clientele
over its more than a decade on St.
John.
Local chefs added their seal of
approval when East West owner
Julie Van Pelt's shrimp and lobster
potstickers was voted "Best Appe-
tizer" at Flavors St. John.
The annual Rotary fund riser
was hosted in November at the
Westin Resort and Villas and fea-
tured top island chefs going head
to head for the honor of wining the
judges' favor.
Van Pelt was a shoe-in with her
scrumptious potstickers, which
were devoured by the crowd, and
the judges. With her unique blend
of tropical influences, French
technique and Pacific Rim flavors
- imagine a miso-sake-soy mari-
nated Seabass over wasabi mashed
potatoes with Asian style grilled
asparagus - Van Pelt has definite-
ly discovered the perfect recipe for
success.
But the California-native found
the world of cooking only after
studying poli-sci in college. When
the then-UCLA student, who ma-
jored in political science and Chi-
nese, studied in China, she was as
enthralled with the cuisine as with
the politics.
"I spent two years in China
studying and while I was there


"I fell in love with
Asian food. When
I came back from
China, instead of
going to law school,
I started cooking."
-Julie Van Pelt, chef/owner
East West Catering



I went to cooking school on the
weekends," said Van Pelt. "I just
loved the food. Back then they had
these black markets where you
could buy anything you wanted
and there was all this amazing pro-
duce coming in from the country-
side."
"I fell in love with Asian food,"
Van Pelt said. "When I came back
from China, instead of going to
law school, I started cooking."
The life-long skiing enthusiast
began her cooking career in As-
pen, Colorado, where she was in-
troduced to that other country of
culinary expertise, France.
"I went to Aspen and appren-
ticed under a French chef, but I
didn't want to be a French chef,"
said Van Pelt. "I loved the French
technique, but I also loved the
Asian flavors. Another thing that
I really liked was the way French
chefs built flavors from the ground
up.


"With French cooking you start
with your onions and garlic and
simmer them down and add from
there, whereas in Asian cuisine,
those are your finishing touches
that you add at the last minute,"
said the chef.
After tiring of the long Colo-
rado winters over more than seven
years, Van Pelt decided to head
south and try her hand at sailing.
"I didn't want to do eight months
of winter anymore," said the chef.
"I went to the Aspen public library
and found a sailing magazine and
read about this company called
Moorings, which had a base on
Tortola, which I couldn't find on
an Atlas. I had never been to the
Caribbean before."
"They talked to me about re-
vamping their waterside restaurant
and flew me down to Beef Island,"
said Van Pelt.
After helming several kitchens
on Tortola, learning how to sail
and meeting her future husband, a
chance encounter with a St. John
resident brought Van Pelt to Love
City.
"I met Jennifer Triosi on Tortola
and she loved my food so much
and said no one was doing it on St.
John," said Van Pelt. "She asked
me to come and spend a day on St.
John and I just fell in love with the
island. I went back to Tortola and
quit my job."
"It took me six months to move
over here," she said. "I quit my job

St. John Tradewinds, January 3-9, 2011 7


"Broadway Comes To St. John" for Island Students


St. John Tradewinds
The St. John School of the Arts announced
last week "Broadway Comes To St. John," a
major arts education initiative culminating
in two performances featuring the fourth
grade students of Julius E. Sprauve, Guy
Benjamin and Gifft Hill schools, the dance
students of SJSA and five Broadway actors.
Leading the acting contingent will be
John Tartaglia, Tony Award nominee in the
leading role of AVENUE Q, the recent Tony
Award winner as best musical, best score
and best book.
Tartaglia and troupe arrive on February
4, receiving no compensation other than liv-
ing accommodations provided by an island
family. Two of the actors have visited St.
John on past occasions.
They saw this as an opportunity to "give
back" for their many pleasurable stays on St.
John. Every school day, beginning February


7, for two weeks, the actors will split up vis-
iting each of the schools to give instruction
to the fourth graders in acting, movement
and puppetry.
On Friday, February 18, there will be two
performances in the Westin Ballroom, fea-
turing the students performing a review of
their accomplishments over the two-week
period. The first performance at 6 p.m. will
be for 100 donors contributing $200 each.
That performance will be followed by a
brief cocktail reception at the Westin and a
gourmet dinner.
The second performance, at 8 p.m. on
Feb. 18, will welcome one and all, subject to
the capacity of the ballroom, with an encore
of the earlier show, and a suggested contri-
bution of $10, $5 or "other" for students,
parents, residents and visitors.
SJSA's gala committee is seeking a
"Broadway Star Sponsor" to be the honor-


ary chairperson of the entire event. The star
sponsor will host a private dinner with the
actors on Saturday, February 19, as a fare-
well and "thank you" prior to their depar-
ture.
As part of the gala celebration, there will
be a "St. John Goes to Broadway" raffle,
limited to 100 raffle tickets at $100 each.
The winner will receive two plane tickets,
three nights at a top New York hotel, two
orchestra seats to each of two Broadway
shows and dinner for two at two top New
York restaurants, dates to be selected by the
winner, subject to availability and excluding
holiday periods. The winner and guest may
also visit backstage at one of the produc-
tions.

Spirit Sounds, oil, by Lisa Etre


Bajo el Sol Gallery's January 7th Show


Will Feature Two Painters, One Potter


St. John Tradewinds
Two St. John painters and an
artist working in ceramics -
Lisa Etre, Ayn Riehle and Mandy
Thody - will be featured at an
opening reception at Bajo el Sol
Gallery on Friday, January 7, from
5 to 8 p.m..
Lisa Etre spends many hours
giving back to her island com-
munity as head of the Art Depart-
ment at Ivanna Eudora Kean High
School. In her own time she con-
tinues to enrich her own life and
the lives of many others through
her paintings.
This current exhibit is the result


of Etre's love of "plein aire" paint-
ing. Enjoying the different light in
the many different locations, Lisa
captures her island home.
Ayn Riehle shows a comfort
level and quality level in her two
favorite mediums, watercolor and
acrylic. Her watercolors have the
soft quality of color and light and
the acrylic paintings feature the
lush fields of paint. The textures in
her acrylic paintings bring a differ-
ent life quality to the works.
Mandy Thody continues to work
both in the low fire raku and high
fire ceramics. Many of her current
works hold a personal appeal and


offer the viewer an insight into her
beliefs.
As an artist Thody creates piec-
es to enjoy and as a person she
continues to expand her caring for
others less fortunate. Her work in
relief efforts is reflected and of-
fered in her work.
Come and share with Ayn, Lisa,
Mandy and Bajo el Sol's other St.
John artists. The gallery's regular
hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday
through Saturday.
The gallery is located at the top
of the stone steps in Mongoose
Junction, St. John. For more infor-
mation call 693-7070.

Roundabout Construction
Still Ahead of Schedule

Sprauve, Francis and Thomas Retire
Friends and well-wishers gathered at the Cruz
Bay Battery on Thursday afternoon, January 7,
to wish three women - with almost 100 years
of government service between them - happy
retirement. After 41 years as Administrator
Secretary II, Helen Francis has been an integral part
of keeping the St. John government cogs turning.
Natalie Thomas isn't about to slow down either. The
Deputy Supervisor of Elections, who has worked
with the department for 31 years, is not ready to put
on a bathrobe and eat bonbons, she explained. After
25 years as Election Assistant, Ecelma Sprauve also
retired at the end of 2009. When she was first hired
in the mid-1980s, Sprauve didn't know she would
remain in her position for more than two decades.

property to 150 parking spots, VIPA Executive

Commerce meeting.
Alpine Answers Few Questions
In a meeting that grew contentious at times, residents had
few of their questions answered by representatives of Alpine
Energy Group during a Thursday evening, January 14, public
hearing at the Cruz Bay Legislature building. It was standing
room only, although many of the seats inside the legislature
room were filled with various environmental consultants and
officials from VI. Waste Management Authority and Water
And Power Authority. The meeting was the second in a series
of town hall meetings hosted by WAPA, VIWMA and Alpine
across the territory to share details of two proposed waste to
energy and petroleum-coke burning power plants.

in throngs to donate to the cause, wash their cars and en-
joy food, drink and music. V.I. Fire Department supplied
water for the event and many residents donated
and volunteered in any way possible.

Meet Stuart Smith: Love City's
Principal Planner
After three years in office,
Governor John deJongh last
week made good on his campaign
promise to hire a planner to deal
with Love City's growing pains.
Dwindling parking, increasing I.
congestion and over-burdened
infrastructure have been a source
of complaint for St. John resi-
dents for years. For the first time b
ever, there is now a government
employee on the payroll whose job will be to try to correct
past mistakes while planning for the future.
After a year-long process, Stuart Smith moved to the
territory about two weeks ago from Wilmington, North
Carolina, to become Principal Planner for the island of St.
John.

Grande Bay Rezone Request Gets
Overwhelming Support at Hearing
The tide has undoubtedly turned for Grande Bay devel-
oper Bay Isle Associates, who has faced strong opposition
and numerous lawsuits during the years-long construction
process of the Cruz Bay luxury condominium develop-
ment.
The developer's request for rezoning of its 0.26-acre
lot, 3Abc in Cruz Bay, from W-1 to R-4 was met with al-
most unanimous support from the numerous testifiers who
crowded the St. John Legislature hall at a Thursday eve-
ning, March 4, hearing of the V.I. Senate.

"Tentative" Post Office Site Rezoning
Faces No Opposition at Hearing
The packed St. John Legislature hall remained silent
except for one lone voice of support at the Thursday
evening, March 4, V.I. Senate hearing for the rezoning of
a planned St. John post office site.
The Boynes family is seeking to have its 7,800 square
foot parcel, located at 131 Estate Contant and Enighed,
rezoned from R-4 to B-2 for the construction of a
threestory building, with space to be leased to the U.S.
Postal Service for a new post office for St. John.

Plans for St. John Multipurpose
Center Getting Dusted Off
After collecting dust for more than 20 years, a long-
dormant plan to construct a multipurpose center in Cruz
Bay might just be getting new life again soon. Plans for
a St. John multipurpose center, which include an indoor
basketball court, stage, kitchen, meeting rooms and dorms
for visiting sports teams, were drawn by architect Doug
White more than 20 years ago.
On Monday, March 8, the VI. Senate voted almost
unanimously to return the St. John Capital Improvement
Fund to St. John for capital improvements, not trash
hauling. With a new source of funding available for the
long-promised multipurpose center in Cruz Bay, it seems
White's plans might be getting dusted off soon. Despite
sitting on a shelf for two decades, the multipurpose center
plans are still viable, according to White.

The St. John Community Foundation would like to
invite you to join a collective GO GREEN Effort for
2011, starting with a collaborative partner gathering
on Tuesday, January 11.
We all want to improve the Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
efforts on island and find other ways to help keep our
environment healthy. Let's band together, pool our
voices, contacts and efforts for the good of the whole
and improve outputs without duplicating effort.
We can create an island-wide plan then go to pro-
spective funding sources as a unified front of action-


oriented team players, and have the same team out in
the community educating our residents of the impor-
tance and immediate need to GO GREEN!
I will follow up with more details of the January
11 get-together where we will let you know what we
are planning for this GO Green Campaign and see
how we can partner with you and others to improve
the bottom line! Thanks for caring and sharing island
style. We ARE the ones to make a difference!
All the best,

On Saturday, December 18, Starfish Market had
an Ole Time Christmas event for our senior citizen
community on St. John. Forty-six seniors attended
the event which included local foods, drinks and live

I'd like to take the time to send BIG thank you's
out to all who helped to make the event a success for
the seniors.

As the New Year approaches, I began thinking
about the positive changes I've seen for St. John's
animals in the past 20 years.
We no longer see starving dogs and diseased cats in
our streets or litters of dead kittens by the dumpsters.
Over the years, thanks to the Animal Care Center,
we've been able to carry hundreds of feral cats for
medical screening and neutering. My own neighbor-
hood, once overrun with unhealthy, un-owned cats,
tis now home to only a dozen or so, all healthy and
cared for.
We now have a safe, clean, loving shelter for stray
or adoptable animals, where a kind and careful person
looks out for them and does everything in her power
to improve their lives. I want to give special thanks to
Connie Joseph for all the years she's dedicated to our
island animals.
I was there recently for a typical morning at the
shelter. There she was scrubbing the lower cat cages,
reassuring and petting cats who were all vying for her
attention, scolding the naughty ones and chuckling at
their antics. She'd just finished medicating all those

I'd also like to say thank you to the Marketplace

Wade and all the first floor businesses of the Market-

suffering winter respiratory infections. She'd bottle-
fed the tiny ones who go home with her at night. And
she'd managed somehow to treat each critter with
love and understanding of its individual needs.
While sterilizing cages, she'd also been interview-
ing a prospective volunteer. Then she took a break to
lend out a trap and, a few minutes later, to sign out
cat-food to someone with a feeding station.
Then she took a phone-call from someone inter-
ested in adopting a dog. I listened to her affection-
ate descriptions of the dogs available for adoption,
impressed by her good-natured patience. I heard her
explain several times, clearly and kindly, the rules in-
volved in adopting a dog, including the trial period
and why it was so necessary.
When I tell her I don't know how she manages to
keep up with all this, she passes off the compliment
saying, "It's my life...it's what I do."
So here's a New Year's toast to the Animal Care
Center and to Connie Joseph whose unfailing dedica-
tion keeps it running. We are blessed to have her.

Seeking Information on the Thomas Family


I lived on St. John from 1972 to 1979 as a young
man. I knew the Thomas family from their arrival on
the island as partners in the Texaco station and their
attempt to make a go of their glass bottom boat to
their running the Upper Deck restaurant.


As I recall they started the St. John Drum and I
even had my picture in an early issue when I was
working on the shark fishing boat.
Whatever became of them?

St. John Tradewinds, January 3-9, 2011 17


Letters To St. John Tradewinds


I attended the amazingly emo-
tionally moving and deep touch-
ing memorial "Celebration of
Life" for our Sis Frank on Satur-
day, December 18.
One thing was very clear: Sis
Frank and the loving energy in ac-
tion that followed her everywhere
helped coin the nickname "Love
City" for St. John.
As I looked around the school
at the diversity of people present
and the heart-warming testimonies
of either music or words "from
the heart," it was obvious that this
amazing woman did something
awesome and legendary to the
community that we all call home.
Through Sis's amazing work,
she planted the seeds of expanded
creativity, compassion, under-
standing and a love of life and all
its potential for many on St. John...
an "all ah we" vibe that still ex-
ists.
I thought that "the old days"
were really as I had remembered
them. I myself only settled here in
the early 80s; however, there truly
WAS something powerful going
on in this community then that
presently needs us to resurrect and
nurture in the "here and now" of
2011.
How can we honor Sis's great
spirit and continue her legacy in
the manner that she would want,
that our island needs now?
We must become more of a uni-
fied community; we need to learn
to find the consensus on issues for
all of us -- not reenforce our dif-
ferences.
We need to listen more to each
other, understand each other's per-
spective more, love and respect
each other more, ignite the passion
for what we are "for" versus what
we are against! Some of us are
settlers, continentals, snow birds,
down islanders, and native Virgin
Islanders.
We must find a way to grow to-
gether, resolve our differences, and
find the "heaven on Earth" that we
can create together as a conscious
community of diverse people shar-
ing a small space in the middle of
a vast ocean. If we can do it on St.
John, then it can happen anywhere
on this planet.


"Peace on Earth, good will to all
humankind" is a possibility. Can
there be a more lovely thought at
Christmas as we join hearts in this
festive and sacred season?
Sis was able to do this in every
aspect of her long and meaningful
life.
She reached out to others, she
shared her talents, she never gave
up on the dream she had for the
youth of St. John. Sis used her
God-given talents to join people
from the "heart space."
She was a "bridge builder" not
a "wall maker;" she joined people,
never divided them.
My wish for 2011 is that every-
one of us, because of our deep re-
spect for Sis Frank and the amazing
gifts that she gave St. John from
the early days on, can all become a
little more like our "sister" Sis.
Please consider supporting
the St. John School of The Arts.
Without the arts, we can never
find those seeds of potential in our
children that inspire passion and
creativity...the attributes of the
"soul." Sponsor a child for a pro-
gram, become a member, attend
recitals and programs.
Simply looking around that
school at Sis's memorial was clear
evidence of her success. There
stood successful musicians like
Grasshopper from Inner Visions
stating his testimony on the many
gifts that Sis gave him personally.
Grasshopper said that he rarely
does a concert anywhere without
giving thanks to Sis Frank and
the impact she made on him as a
young man.
May Sis Frank's memories and
work continue on through each of
us remembering who she was and
what she did for St. John! May I
also acknowledge the important-
ly dedicated "daughter" that Sis
Frank had in Jan Kinder. Thank
you Jan for taking such good care
of our Sis in her last days and in
continuing her "dream" for St.
John.
Peace and love to all of St. John,
to our sister Virgin Islands and our
entire planet.
Sincerely,
Bonny Corbeil.


I would like to respond to the letter by Z. Hruza
entitled "Sharks Should Not Be Protected." The au-
thor of this letter furthers the myths about shark at-
tacks without understanding the facts surrounding
them and the role sharks play in maintaining a bal-
anced marine environment. I have borrowed from
several sources in my response to this letter.
Every year around 60 shark attacks on humans
are reported worldwide, although only four or five
result in death. The United States has had more re-
ported shark attacks than any other country, with a
total of 1,049 attacks (49 fatal) during the past 339
years (1670-2009). As of 2009, the International
Shark Attack File recorded a total of 2,251 attacks
worldwide since 1580, with 464 attacks being fatal.
The Florida Museum of Natural History com-
pares these statistics with the much higher rate of
deaths from other, less feared causes. For example,
an average of more than 38 people die annually from
lightning strikes in coastal states, while fewer than
one person per year is actually killed by a shark.
Even considering only people who go to beaches,
a person's chance of getting attacked by a shark is
one in 11.5 million, and a person's chance of getting
killed by a shark is less than one in 264.1 million. In
the United States, the annual number of people who
drown is 3,306, whereas the annual number of shark
fatalities is one. And statistics show that many more
people are bitten by other people each year than by
sharks (more than 1,000 people each year are bitten
by other people in New York City alone)!
Contrary to popular belief, only a few sharks are
dangerous to humans. Out of more than 360 shark
species, only four have been involved in a signifi-
cant number of fatal unprovoked attacks on humans:
the great white, tiger, bull and the oceanic white-
tip.
Sharks are threatened worldwide due to unsus-
tainable levels of fishing for fins and meat as well
as other human activities. Exploitation of sharks has
increased dramatically due to declining catch rates
in traditional fisheries and an increasing demand for
shark fins in Asian markets.
The high demand in Asia has led to a rapid esca-


Thank you for the article on the Skystream wind
generator on Bordeaux Mountain.
Inadvertently, Femando Micheletti's contribution
to the project was omitted.
Fernando, as the owner's rep, acted as construc-
tion manager. He participated in construction ac-


lation in shark fisheries all over the globe. Recent
research estimates that roughly 73 million individ-
ual sharks are harvested each year. Further studies
estimate that the total number of sharks in the north
Atlantic has declined by two thirds in the last fifty
years and the global biomass of sharks has declined
80 percent since the industrialization of fishing.
The high fishing pressure on shark stocks is ex-
acerbated by their life history characteristics that
make some species especially vulnerable to anthro-
pogenic pressures including fishing and habitat de-
struction. Slow growth rates, late age at maturity,
and small numbers of offspring all lead to slow rates
of recovery for sharks following dramatic declines
in populations.
Current declines in shark populations are also
having wide reaching effects throughout marine eco-
systems. General scientific consensus suggests that
most marine food webs are subjected to top down
control and consequently the effects of top predator
removal cascades down through the trophic pyramid
affecting the abundance species below them. For ex-
ample, recent studies suggest a direct link between
the over fishing of sharks and the decline of a centu-
ry old scallop fishery on the east coast of the USA.
Declines in shark populations have also been im-
plicated in the reduction of herbivorous fish species
on coral reefs, leading to excess algal growth and
the inability of corals to attach and grow.
A classic example of possibly the last remaining
balanced coral reef ecosystem left in the world is the
Line Islands in the middle of the Pacific. Virtually
untouched by human activities, the waters around
these islands and atolls are teeming with sharks. As
a result, the reefs are also teeming with huge schools
of many species of fish and the corals are incredibly
healthy. And the sharks, being well fed naturally,
show little interest in human presence. Truly, this is
a balanced coral reef ecosystem where large preda-
tors actually enhance the prey species abundance
and the health of the corals.
Nature has figured it out. It is people that
haven't.

der if they should be someplace
else, but I realize I'm on the most
incredible island in the world with
an incredible population that really
cares about each other."
Van Pelt continues to give back
to the community as well. In ad-
dition to offering her food at the
Flavors fund raiser, she has also
cooked for Friends of V.I. Nation-
al Park fund raisers, Wagapalooza
and will be serving up some of her
favorite dishes at the January 8
St. John Animal Care Center fund
raiser.
"We've always tried to give
back to the community," said the
chef. "I'm a Buddhist and I believe
that you have to give away every-
thing that you can without bring-


"What I've learned is that this island is the

ing hardship on yourself."
While her menu changes each
season, in order to "keep it fun
and different," some things at East
West Catering have remained the
same over the past few years.
"I'm very proud of the fact that
we have not changed our fees in
three years, since the economic
downturn," said the chef. "It's very
important to me that I can get up in
the morning and know I did a great
job for a great price."
Being able to offer Josephine's
Organic produce has been the
most exciting advancement for
East West Catering, according to
Van Pelt.
"We've become such a fan of
Coral Bay Organic Gardens and we
do everything we can with them,"
the chef said. "We use herbs and
produce that just came out of the
ground that morning. The local
food grown here takes my cuisine
to a whole new level that I don't
even really have anything to do


with."
After more than a dozen years
in the business, Van Pelt still gets
excited to cater someone's special
day and become a part of their
memories, she explained.
"I'm creating memories and
that is what keeps me going," said
Van Pelt. "We get to be a part of
some people's happiest days and
that is really special."
East West fans won't want to
miss the ACC fund raiser on Janu-
ary 8 when Van Pelt will be whip-
ping up a grilled warm duck salad
over Josephine's arugula with
fresh grilled mango and Gnarly
Head Zinfandel reduction sauce.
Or call up East West for that

Tradewinds Letters


Alpine Energy Deal Is Still Alive


Many people seem to think that
the proposed Alpine Energy Group
deal with WAPA and VIWMA has
gone away. That's not the case. It
has been in the process of chang-
ing, but is still much very alive. In
coming weeks there may be permit
review hearings for critical parts
of the proposed operations.
So what is "the Beast"? It's the
classic dilemma faced by some
waste-to-energy projects, includ-
ing this proposed AEG/WMA/
WAPA deal, because:
1) It's absent the scalability
needed to match the size of the
community, and amount of waste
produced by the V.I. If a communi-
ty/setting doesn't produce enough
organic wastes/trash to sustain a
particular WTE operation without
resorting to fossil fuels or other
non-renewable/non-sustainable
fuel sources to produce the amount
of energy desired from the WTE
project, it becomes not a renewable
energy project, but rather a "beast"
for which we must continually find
feed stock for fuel.
2) Because of 1) above, the
WTE project competes for organic
wastes (food wastes, brush/green
waste, paper, etc.) that can be
much less expensively composted
and/or recycled on a per-ton-basis,
as compared with costs for prepar-
ing refuse-derived-fuel (RDF), and
sending those wastes to a WTE
project; and, composting and recy-
cling can potentially generate rev-
enues from those wastes. Current-
ly the VI. Composting Committee
(part of the broader V.I. Recycling
Partnership) is developing plans
for large-scale organic composting
operations on both STT and STX.
Those operations would be capa-
ble of processing half of the VI.'s
total municipal solids wastes,
and at a cost of about half what
the AEG agreements with WMA
would have the VI. pay for send-
ing wastes to the AEG operation
(composting at about $50 per ton,
as compared with around $100 per
ton to send wastes to the AEG op-
eration).
3) Some WTE processes (e.g.
incineration/combustion, which
is what the AEG operation would
be) are inherently limited in the


amount of net energy they can
produce per ton of organic waste.
Therefore, given the high costs per
ton for preparing and sending that
waste to such a process, the eco-
nomics of producing power in that
way simply make no sense.
Two things have become abun-
dantly clear as we've watched the
decision-making process around
these two critical issues - clean
renewable energy, and sound man-
agement of the V.I.'s wastes: (1)
Persons immersed in renewable
energy sectors don't seem to know
much about the waste manage-
ment business; and (2) Persons
immersed in the waste manage-
ment business don't seem to know
much about the waste-to-energy
business.
A WTE deal in the V.I. means
two sets of agreements: One be-
tween a given WTE company and
WAPA, and the other between the
WTE company and WMA. Both
deals have to make sense. So far,
none of the deals make sense be-
cause neither account effectively
and fully (in terms of all costs to
the people of the V.I.) for all of the
waste and all of the energy issues
involved with the situation.
Those involved with "tweaking"
and/or reviewing and scrutiniz-
ing these deals have been locked
in a hopeless game of ping-pong
- back and forth. When one side
(waste or energy) declares they've
struck a good "bargain," if the oth-
er is paying attention, they quickly
reply, "But wait - you neglected
to account for this, this and that."
It seems like we need to get ex-
perts from both sectors - waste
and energy - together in the
same room with a set of credible,
industry and expert-vetted facts,
and get to the real bottom line, if
we're going to do a sound and sus-
tainable WTE project. There are
suitably scalable and clean high
thermal WTE processes out there.
We simply need to explore them in
an informed way. The deal we've
been looking at to date (AEG's)
is neither sound nor sustainable
from economic, environmental,
and good use of material resources
perspectives.

munity Council is set to stem the tide of storm water run-
off. Plumes of runoff that turn Coral Bay harbor a murky
brown during rains will soon be a thing of the past thanks
to a coordinated effort between VI. Resources Conserva-
tion and Development Council, CBCC, NOAA and several
other local and federal agencies.
Governor John deJongh was among the local dignitaries
who gathered at the Coral Bay Department of Agriculture
Station on Wednesday morning, April 14, to celebrate the

lization project.

Major Portion of Coral Bay, Marsh
Estate Proposed as Territorial Park
Residents at the Coral Bay Community Council's
official ground breaking ceremony for its watershed
restoration projects delighted in the news Attorney
William Blum shared with the crowd. Blum was on hand
for the event as a representative of the Egbert Marsh
Trust, the owners of a 170- acre parcel which is a major
portion of the Coral Bay valley. Instead of wanting
to develop the property, Egbert Marsh's grandson,
Sheldon Marsh, hopes to sell it to the VI. Government
to create a public territorial park, Blum announced at the
groundbreaking ceremony.


Stabbing Shocks JESS

School Staff and Students
Julius E. Sprauve School students, parents and faculty
were reeling last week in the aftermath of the worst vio-

was stabbed on the left side of his upper torso by a 16-year-
old JESS student from St. Thomas around 10:30 a.m. at the
school on Thursday morning, April 8.
A fellow JESS student, a 15-year-old from St. John,
brought the switchblade used in the attack to school and
was also involved with the stabbing, according to informa-
tion from the VI. Police Department.
The 14-year-old victim was treated and released from
Myrah Keating Smith Community Health Center and was
recovering from his injuries last week.

Smoke-free St. John -

V.I. Poised To Ban All

Smoking In Public
Smokers used to lighting up anywhere on St. John
will need to break their habits after the governor's likely
approval of the Virgin Islands Smokefree Act. Members
of the 28th Legislature proposed the Bill (No. 28- 0191)
banning smoking within and 20 feet from the entrances
of fully- or partially-enclosed areas of public spaces and
places of employment in December. It passed through
the legislature on April 15 and it is expected to receive
Governor John deJongh's backing in the near future.
