St. John CZM Committee Takes Action on Three Requests
CZM Hears from G.E. Marsh Legacy Group, Pond Bay Club Westin Resort and WAPA
By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds St. John Coastal Zone Management Committee members handed down three decisions on Thursday afternoon, April 28, and tabled one modification request.
The group took action on two requests for modification to permits and one request for extension, while tabling one request for modification at last week's decision meeting.
St. John CZM Committee members Madaline Sewer, Andrew Perm and Gerald Hills attended the meeting at the Westin Resort and Villas on Thursday afternoon. Member Edmund Roberts was absent.
Coral Bay Development Granted Extension
G.E. Marsh Legacy Group requested an extension of its major CZM permit to construct a commercial and residential complex on its Coral Bay land. The developers plan to construct two single story commercial buildings, one two-story commercial and residential building, a food court, a 150-seat amphitheater, and a maintenance building along with six detention ponds.
Plans for the development also include constructing 70 parking

spaces, two windmills, a reverse osmosis plant and three wells on parcel 6R-1 Estate Carolina, just off South Shore Road.
"Planning and funding arrangements have not progressed to the stage that would permit meaningful construction by May 19,2011," according to the Marsh Legacy Group's request for extension.
Adopting CZM staff findings
and recommendations, the St. John CZM committee voted unanimously to grant the developers a one year extension, while keeping all special conditions in place which were issued with the Marsh Legacy Group's original permit. Monitoring Reduced at Pond Bay Club The court-appointed receiver overseeing Pond Bay Club, whose
permit is now controlled by European bank West LB AG, requested a modification of the project's current major CZM permit. Richard Morawetz requested temporary changes to the development's Environmental and Water Quality Monitoring requirements, sedimentation analysis and coral and seagrass monitoring.
A major CZM permit was origi-
20th Annual Folklife Festival Set for May 26-28
Continued from Back Page Each session will focus on the shared cultural heritage of the Caribbean and the differences between the islands, Georges explained.
"Dancers will be demonstrating the traditional Quelbe, which is basically a polka or square dance," she said. "The slaves imitated the masters' dances, but were also able to ingest their own culture and movements into the dance to form a whole new thing. You'll see how the dancers from each island tie their madras headbands differently."
The festival was launched 20 years ago after it was mandated that all National Parks recognize Black History Month, explained
With traditional drumming, music, dancing, food and storytelling, the annual festival is an anticipated event.
Georges.
"It was made into law that all parks had to celebrate Black His-
tory Month in some way and that is how we started," she said. "Over the years, the festival has grown
into this phenomenal event. I don't know how it comes together � I get these ideas at 2 a.m. and write them down."
Georges thanked sponsors Friends of VTNP, Boyson, St. John Tradewinds, Starfish Market, Cinnamon Bay Campground, VI. Council on the Arts, St. John Ice Company, Lime Inn and others who support the festival.
"It is really a community effort each year to put the festival on," she said. "I want to thank everyone who supports us."
From the stunning natural setting to the engaging presenters and amazing dancers, no one will want to miss the 20th Annual St. John Folklife Festival May 26 through 28 at Annaberg Sugar Mill Ruins.
nally granted to First American Development Group/Carib back in January 2007 to construct a 56 unit fractional ownership and hotel development in Estate Chocolate Hole. Since that time, the developer requested several modifications and reconsiderations to the original permit from CZM before shutting the 13.55 acre construction site down more than a year ago.
An ensuing legal battle between First American Development Group, and its principal Robert Emmett, and West LB AG � which granted the developer a multi-million dollar construction loan � ended with VI. Superior Court putting the development into receivership and granting West LB the property pledge.
Morawetz was appointed receiver over the property and granted possession of the CZM permit.
The modification was requested because "construction activity has ceased temporarily and the current level of monitoring is excessive and burdensome in light of the current realities on the site," according to the modification request.
"The temporary modification is intended to last only during the foreclosure proceeding and until ownership of the property is trans-Continued on Page 16

St. John School of the Arts co-founder Elroy Sprauve, SJSA board of directors president Ronnie Jones and the school's executive director, Jan Kinder, recall fond memories of SJSA founder Sis Frank at the Saturday evening, April 30, dedication of the school building in Frank's honor. A Kat Sowa portrait of Frank, who passed away last Thanksgiving, was unveiled, along with a plaque proclaiming the SJSA building the "Sis Frank Performance Hall."

SJSA Dedicates Performance Hall to School Founder Sis Frank with Intimate Ceremony
By Andrea Milam
St. John Tradewinds
A small gathering of St. John residents trickled in to the St. John School of the Arts on Saturday, April 30, to the sounds of Michael Banzhaf on the flute, with a single purpose: to honor the school's late founder, Ruth "Sis" Frank, by dedicating the school's performance hall to her.
Those in attendance came to honor Frank and all that she did for St. John, the island she called home since 1959.
"Anything dealing with the memory of Sis Frank, I feel compelled to support," said St. Johnian Elroy Sprauve, who helped co-found the SJSA. "She's given so much to so many."
Frank was remembered for her way of quietly accomplishing great feats. Sprauve, who recalled the late SJSA founder as "our beloved Sis Frank" more than once during his speech characterized her as someone who didn't find it necessary to tear others down in order to build herself up.
"In her very quiet way, she was able to communicate her passion," said Sprauve. "Her love for the children was complete and sincere."
That love was evident nearly up to her death on Thanksgiving 2010.
Ruth "Sis" Frank
SJSA board of directors president Ronnie Jones recalled Sis' unassuming attempts to donate to the St. John tennis club into 2010.
"Sis never passed by the tennis club's tennis tournaments without calling somebody over to take some money for a donation," said Jones. "She was special all of her life. The impact she's made on us we cannot let go to waste; if we keep up that spirit, we will be a better community."
Frank got her start bringing music and the arts to St. John children with the steel band program, Steel Unlimited, in 1970. Frank managed the group, bringing them to Lincoln Center and the Rose Bowl. It seemed evident that Frank was destined to do great
things on St. John from the day she arrived, SJSA Executive Director Jan Kinder explained.
"As she was looking over to St. John from the Red Hook ferry dock, a double rainbow formed right over St. John," she said. "She interpreted this to mean she was in the right place and good things were going to happen. And how right she was."
Those in attendance at the dedication raised their glasses as a portrait of Frank, painted by local artist Kat Sowa, was unveiled, along with a plaque dedicating the school's building as the "Sis Frank Performance Hall."
Frank would have celebrated her 87th birthday on Monday, May 2, prompting the audience to sing
"Happy Birthday." A moment of silence was also taken for those in attendance to remember the SJSA founder and how she touched their lives.
Those who knew Frank realize that she probably would have been uncomfortable accepting such a public honor, but the dedication of the school's building in her name was inevitable, explained SJSA Assistant Director Kim Wild.
"She wouldn't have liked the fuss, but tough," said Wild, laughing. "This is what everybody on St. John would want."

Power Boat Runs Aground on Stevens Cay
By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Stevens Cay claimed another vessel over the Easter weekend. The latest victim was a 3 5-foot Contender with 14 people aboard, which ran aground early Sunday morning, April 24.
The rocky outcropping just off Cruz Bay has proved too tempting to not skirt closely and several vessels have ended up hard aground on the cay this season.
U.S. Coast Guard officials received a call around 1:30 a.m. on April 24 that a boat was aground on Stevens Cay, according to reports. USCG launched a helicopter from its base in Puerto Rico and a vessel from St. Thomas, according to USCG spokesperson Ricardo Castrodad.
Vessels from SeaTow from St. Thomas, St. John Rescue, V.I. Search and Rescue from Tortola and St. Thomas Rescue also responded to the incident, according to officials.
Only two people were injured in the accident, one suffered a wrist injury and the other a blow to the nose, according to a report in the V.I. Daily News.
The two patients were transported by St. John Rescue to Cruz Bay, where they transferred to the Listen "Huntie" Sprauve Ambulance boat for transport to Red Hook and taken to R.L. Schneider Hospital, according to reports.
The Puerto Rican registered vessel was traveling from Jost Van Dyke to Road Town Tortola when it ran aground, according to a report in the V.I. Daily News.
The vessel was taken to Sub Base dry dock for repairs. USCG officials were continuing their investigation into the accident last week.

Business Owners Discuss Noise Ordinance at Meeting of Island's Chamber Chapter
By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
While not raising their voices, St. John business owners last week agreed that the noise ordinance as spelled out in the V.I. Code is mired in confusion.
Most of the 14 people who attended the monthly meeting of the St. John Chapter of the St. Thomas/St. John Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday evening, April 26, at Castaways were there to discuss the noise ordinance.
The issue has taken center stage in Cruz Bay lately with some business owners and residents looking for quiet and other business owners hoping to continue to host live entertainment while operating within the law.
Government House officials are in the process of revamping the ordinance and have reached out to the local chamber to get input from St. John business owners, according to chamber board member Kate Norfleet.
"Government House is in the process of rewriting the law," said Norfleet. "Right now there is really no legal music allowed outside anywhere, unless you have a nightclub license and no one really qualifies for that. Everyone wants to listen to music and have a good time, but we have to come together as a community and come up with a law we can all live with."
Business owners are looking for exactly that � a law which makes sense.
"I think we are just looking for a common sense law," said one Cruz Bay business owner at the meeting. "There could be reasonable time limits on loud music on weekends and weekdays. We want to get along with other businesses and if it was a common sense law I think everyone would be happy to comply."
The noise pollution control act, as spelled out in Chapter 62 of the V.I. Code, is confusing and ambiguous. While defining "noise pollution" as a sound which exceeds 75 decibels, the code does not detail the process for determining where to test the sound. If a decibel meter is placed in front of speaker, for instance, a 75 dB reading would be
"The bar that a cop owns never has to turn its music down, no matter how many times people call to complain," said one business owner.
easy to obtain.
The VI. Code also prohibits noise pollution in "residential zones," but those zones are not clearly identified. On St. John, with residents living in close proximity to businesses � and amplified music, defining a "residential" or "commercial" zone is not an easy task.
The geography of the island also adds to the noise pollution problem, explained Norfleet.
"A lot of people live in bowl areas where the music coming from Cruz Bay can be heard clear as day up on the hill by Sirenusa, for example," said Norfleet.
Inconsistent enforcement of the ordinance is also an issue, according to several chamber members at the meeting.
"The bar that a cop owns never has to turn its music down, no matter how many times people call to complain," said one business owner.
All of the issues related to the noise pollution act in the VI Code, make it virtually impossible to obey the noise ordinance, explained Norfleet.
"The way the law is written now, it's basically bogus," she said.
The good news is that Government House's ears are open to input from St. John to help reshape the current noise pollution act, Norfleet added.
"They are giving St. John a direct option to share what we perceive are the problems with the current law and how we want the law to be changed," she said. "We all want music but we need some semblance for control. We need to be fair to both sides."
Residents and business owners should email Norfleet their ideas
regarding the law and what they would like to see in the future, she added.
"We will bundle everything up and send it to Government House," said Norfleet.
Government officials also agreed to share a draft of the changes to the law with St. John Chamber members before sending the proposal on to the legislature, Norfleet explained.
"There are a lot of different areas of concern, but I think it is great that Government House is interested in hearing from us and sharing the rewritten act before they send it to the senate," she said.
Norfleet also shared Franklin Powell Park renovation plans with the chamber chapter members at the meeting. The plans, which date to 2002, show basically the same set-up at the Cruz Bay park, but with pavers instead of concrete walkways.
The Enighed Pond Marine Facility parking lot remained closed last week, but chamber officials expected to hear word about its opening soon, according to Norfleet.
"I'm expecting a press release with specific dates about the official opening of the lot, but I haven't gotten anything yet," she said. "The parking lot should open imminently."
The St. Thomas/St. John Chamber of Commerce also finally wrapped up its latest Member Directory. Norfleet has been working on the 150-page directory for more than year and was determined to send the book to the printer on Friday, April 29.
The group is also gearing up for its annual awards banquet. The Wilbur "Bill" LaMotta Community Service Awards dinner will be on Saturday, May 14, at St. Peter Greathouse on St. Thomas.
Among the honorees this year are Ira Wade of the Department of Public Works and the VI. National Park. Tickets are $130 and available at Connections. A shuttle from Red Hook to the event will be provided for St. John guests.
The next meeting of the St. John Chapter Chamber of Commerce will be on Tuesday, May 24.

Storm Water Mitigation Road Work Is Getting Underway This Week Across Coral Bay Area
By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds Don't be surprised if that drive through Coral Bay takes a little longer than normal in the coming weeks.
Coral Bay Community Council officials announced last week that contractor Carlson Construction will start several roadwork projects from Mill Vista Road to Gerda Marsh Road as part of the group's storm water maintenance program.
CBCC, along with Estate Fish Bay Homeowners Association and VI. Resource, Conservation and Development Council, was awarded a multi-million-dollar grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to address storm water issues.
Estate Fish Bay Homeowners Association has already wrapped up paving and swale installation
in its neighborhood and VTRCD oversaw the restoration of a gut on St. Croix.
In the Coral Bay area, CBCC is racing against the grant deadline of June 30 to finish all 18 of its planned projects. Road work started last week in some areas of Coral Bay and will last for about a month, according to officials.
While not expecting long closures of any roadways, several neighborhoods in the Coral Bay area might experience limited access, explained CBCC president Sharon Coldren.
"There might be limited road closures in these neighborhoods," said Coldren. "People should look for signs and ask construction crews for details."

VAMPIRES TAKE OVER MAGENS BAY: "Twilight" Scenes Filmed on St. Thomas
St. John Tradewinds
St. Thomas residents quickly knew something was up last month when a portion of Magens Bay Beach was closed to the public and a barge was anchored off shore.
But no one knew exactly what was happening on the popular beach.
VI. Department of Tourism officials issued a press release that a "major motion picture production was filmed," but remained mum on what film was being shot.
Then the online Hollywood gossip machine kicked in and word quickly spread that scenes for "Twilight: Breaking Dawn � Part 1", the latest installment in a popular series, were being filmed with stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.
Scenes from the film shoot, showing Stewart in a green bikini and the two stars kissing lit by an offshore barge, appeared on the front page of the V.I. Daily News on Tuesday, April 26.
The barge anchored off-shore of Magens Bay on Thursday, April 21, and filming occurred from about 5 p.m. Friday, April 22, through 6 a.m. Saturday, April 23, according to DOT officials.
The beach was closed to the public during those hours and many blogs and websites reported that the action was centered around reshooting honeymoon scenes for the first part of the poluar book series' much-anticipated final installment.
DOT worked with Department of Planning and Natural Resources Marine Division and the Magens Bay Authority to secure permits, according to a prepared statement by DOT.
Filming of this kind of high-profile movie is a big boost to the territory, according to the DOT release.
"Each year, the territory competes against film locations globally to host feature films, advertising

Actress Kristen Stewart was spotted on Magens Bay beach last month filming scenes for the movie "Twilight: Breaking Dawn - Part 1."
and editorial feature shoots, which have a significant positive impact on the economy of our islands through temporary jobs created to meet the demands of the film project, on-island spend and showcasing our islands," according to the statement by DOT.
"The film shoot last week employed more than 60 residents and secured services from several local businesses," the DOT statement added. "The preliminary estimate of on-island spend approaches $1 million, over the course of just one week."

"Nike supports me and this group, but this is in no way a Nike event. This is something that is near and dear to my heart and something I work really hard on along with a small island team of volunteers."
- Dean Doeling, USFSC Founder
Using Sport for Social Change Team Gears Up for 3rd Annual Just Play Day
By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
About a dozen people munched on appetizers and sipped refreshments at La Tapa on Wednesday afternoon, April 27, while hearing about the latest accomplishments of Using Sport for Social Change.
A non-profit group launched by Dean Doeling in 2008, USFSC has hosted two successful "Just Play Days" for island youth and donated more than 900 sports balls to local schools. The third annual Just Play Day is set for Monday, October 10, 2011 at Winston Wells ball field and the group already has several sponsors and is looking for more.
La Tapa, Mafhayom, Nike, St. John Community Foundation and the VI. Department of Sports, Parks and Recreation have already signed on as sponsors. Doeling is hoping to attract more sponsors in order to make the upcoming Just Play Day � which encourages children of all ages to compete in sporting events from football toss to 50 yard dash � the best one yet.
Doeling was inspired to form USFSC during a vacation to St. John where he watched students in Cruz Bay kicking around a flat soccer ball. The Nike employee from Oregon decided to donate some sports equipment to the island, but soon realized there was a need for more than a few athletic balls.
"I started by thinking we could just throw a few balls at the school and help out, but I quickly realized there was a bigger need here," said Doeling. "There needed to be commitment, follow through and caring. The kids needed to know that I would be back here year after year and I am."
While Doeling works for Nike and uses the company's incentive programs to obtain equipment for the island, USFSC is not affiliated with the sports mega-brand.
"Nike supports me and this group, but this is in no way a Nike event," said Doeling. "This is something that is near and dear to my heart and something I work really hard on along with a small island team of volunteers."
Doeling outlined the group's achievements over the past year, which included sponsoring the recent Tortola Surf Classic, taking part in the annual Cruz Bay St. Patrick's Day Parade, winning a community award from Southland Gaming and sponsoring an inning of the annual Ruby Rutnik Memorial Softball Tournament.
Looking ahead, Doeling hopes USFSC will take part in the annual Julius E. Sprauve School ceremony honoring student athletes, host the third annual Just

Play Day and continue to donate sports balls to island schools as needed, Doeling explained.
Other USFSC goals for 2011 included creating more in-depth partnerships with local sports groups and bringing the innovative Nike program SPARQ training to St. John, according to Doeling.
The program is basically a way to quantify Speed, Power, Agility, Reaction and Quickness in a variety of sports and assigning ratings to athletes. Doeling foresees hosting a several day SPARQ training session on St. John in the future, which will depend on community support and sponsorship, he explained.
USFSC also relies on community support and donations. The group has several tiers of sponsorship from $ 100 for an Olympian Sponsor which gets one's business on all USFSC materials, to $4,000 Platinum Sponsors which gets one's logo on all material and on the sleeve of the T-shirts handed out during Just Play Day. The group is under the financial umbrella of St. John Community Foundation, a non-profit 501 c3 organization.

An outlook on young adult interests and concerns by Maggie Wessinger
Conquering Boredom
St. John Tradewinds My dad always tells me "those that conquer boredom are those that can rise above the currents of trouble."
Conquering boredom on St. John can be a great struggle for many because there is only so much you can do on an island this small. It's always good to make sure that the choices that you are making in your free time are healthy choices, not one's that could be detrimental.
There are activities out there if you look around. Do things that no one else does, be original and creative. Go hike in the Fish Bay gut when the weather is gloomy. Slide down the naturally made rock slides. Go fish off the Cruz Bay ferry dock! Go look at the ruins right on the beach at Dennis Bay!
You could even go over to St. Thomas and go to a movie with some of your friends. This past weekend a group of people got together and had a surfing competition in the BVI. These are the creative things that get kids off the streets, and get them into a way better environment. Get involved with sports or go snorkel-ing. You can even bring your iPod to the beach and just relax.
However, the key to rising above boredom is healthy relationships. I have many best friends, but most of them have moved off island. Even though it's
hard to always keep in touch with each other, we stay close. We talk on the phone at the least twice a week and text all the time.
One of my best friends, Nicole Morrisette, and I have done some pretty crazy things together. For example, last week we went on a road trip all around the island, visiting different beaches and finding new roads. It sounds stupid, but it was actually really exciting. We brought my turtle, Shellby, along with us to the beach. We always end up cracking up at each other and having fun no matter what we do, or where we are.
Kwasi Browne, a 15-year-old sophomore at Gifft Hill School gets over boredom by going to the beach.
"I hang out with my friends all the time," he said. "We usually go to the beach. We have parties sometimes that are always pretty fun. I play football, basketball, and sing too."
Actually, if you think about it, St. John isn't nearly as boring as it could be. We should all be grateful for all the of opportunities and adventurous options we do have. There are many people in the world who are not as fortunate as us.
Since the mind can be a guide of error, boredom seems to be the first step toward destructive behavior, if left unmanaged. I think it's a really good idea to be proactive, stay busy and live above boredom.
Oily Tar Balls Washing Up on Puerto Rico
St. John Tradewinds
Coast Guard pollution response teams continued cleanup efforts and pollution assessments of Luquillo Beach last month, after receiving a report that oily tar balls had been located on the shoreline, according to U.S. Coast Guard Sector San Juan.
Coast Guard pollution responders expect to conclude cleanup and recovery efforts to collect oily tar balls on Luquillo Beach, after shoreline and offshore cleanup assessments by pollution investigators aboard Coast Guard MH-65 Dolphin helicopters and surface units revealed no additional findings of further contamination in the water.
Coast Guard pollution responders will continue to monitor for any additional signs of pollution and are prepared to respond and mitigate any potential future environmental impacts in the area.
"We are working with local and federal partners as well as specialized oil recovery contractors to clean the tar balls from Luquillo Beach," said Capt. Eduardo Pino, Sector San Juan commander. "The Coast Guard has accessed the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund to immediately execute oil and pollution clean-up efforts to mitigate any environmental
hazards associated with the contamination."
Coast Guard Watchstanders in Sector San Juan initially received notification of the oily tar ball report last month from Puerto Rico Department of Natural and Environmental Resources personnel in Luquillo.
The Coast Guard immediately accessed the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund to initiate pollution cleanup and recovery efforts after pollution investigators were able to confirm the presence of oily tar balls on the beach.
Coast Guard pollution response personnel have been conducting ongoing beach assessments and coordinating cleanup and recovery efforts since the report, while pollution investigators are investigating to determine the cause, origin and responsible party of the contamination.
Anyone who finds oily tar balls on the beach should immediately contact the Coast Guard Command Center at 787-289-2041. People should refrain from touching or attempting to pickup tar balls themselves, if they should happen to come in contact with the material they should wash the area in contact with soap and water.

Rotary Club Satellite Meetings in Coral Bay To Resume in September
By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds Rotary Club of St. John members are hoping to add to their ranks and make it easier for Coral Bay residents to join the organization.
The group started hosting satellite meetings in Coral Bay last month, but will take a break from the meetings until September, explained Rotary St. John president Bruce Munro.
The new meeting location is only a satellite location for meetings, not a satellite club, according to Munro.
"Rotary International approved the concept of hosting satellite meetings in Coral Bay because of the difficulty some members have coming across to Cruz Bay for our regular meetings," he said.
The group meets Fridays at 12:30 p.m. at the Westin Resort and Villas Beach Cafe. The Coral Bay meetings, which are on hiatus until September, will be on Tuesday mornings at 8:30 a.m. outside of Donkey Diner.
Anyone interested in joining the group should attend a Friday meeting at the Westin, Munro added.
Ruby Rutnik Scholarship Applications Are Available at Connections
Applications for Ruby Rutnik Scholarships Awards for the 2011/2012 school year are available at Connections in Cruz Bay and Coral Bay or by calling the Rutniks at 693-8069. The deadline is May 15.

Karen Samuel, Lucy Portlock and Maho Glass Artists To Be Featured at Bajo el Sol Opening on May 6
St. John Tradewinds Bajo el Sol Gallery will host an opening reception for Karen Samuel, Lucy Portlock, and two very talented glass blowers from Maho Glass on Friday, May 6, from 5 to 8 p.m.
Samuel is recognized for both her art and her giving back to her community. As an accomplished artist she will unveil new works which include her special talent at capturing the people and substance of St. John.
Portlock will unveil new work painted in water colors. Hercapture of the underwater world around St. John gives the viewer the feeling of being there and why everyone is responsible for its preservation.
Color is also a definite aspect of the glass sculpture created by Mariel Bass and Greg Lee, two very talented artists of Maho Glass. Art derived from glass is not a new concept, and art derived from recycled glass has grown to recognizable value due in part to these two talented artists. Working in tandem, they create exciting pieces in many shapes, sizes and colors.
Come to the reception on May 6
A vivid watercolor painting by Lucy Portlock details a lively underwater scene.
for a chance to see all of their work and meet the artists.
Enhancing the evening will be beautiful classical guitar music by David Laabs. The gallery's regular hours are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and
noon to 6 p.m. Sunday.
The gallery is located at the top of the stone steps in Mongoose Junction. The artists will be featured during the month of May.

Island Students Celebrate Earth Day at Friends of VINP Fair
By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
From digging for artifacts to painting a mural, St. John students were all smiles while learning about the environment at the Friends of V.I. National Park's annual Earth Day Fair last week.
While Earth Day was officially April 22, Friends of VINP hosted its annual fair to not conflict with school closings for Good Friday.
Early in the morning, students from all island schools participated in a "Litter Stomp" parade from Julius E. Sprauve School to the VINP ball field. Students waved placards they made about keeping garbage off the beaches and protecting the reefs.
Gifft Hill School eighth graders even composed a chant of, "Help preserve our paradise; Help preserve our beaches; Help preserve our wildlife; That's what Gifft Hill teaches."
GHS Education And Resiliency Through Horticulture (EARTH) program students brought a sampling of what they've been propagating at the school with them to the fair. With roots, fruits and leaves on display, students showed off carrots, radishes, parsley, col-lards, bok choy, pineapple, bell peppers, pomegranate, okra and eggplant.
"It's really fun to grow the plants," said Makeda Dawson, a GHS eighth grader who takes part in the EARTH program. "I love being able to eat the food we make after all the hard work."
Students will continue to develop their patio garden and outdoor classroom, explained EARTH coordinator Kristin Bennett.
"We hope to double the number of plants in our patio garden next year," said Bennett. "We've also planted fruit trees and we're going to expand our outdoor classroom
as well."
GHS seniors led younger students on a "fish find" on land, where students identified pictures of fish commonly found around St. John.
Caribbean Oceanic Restoration and Education (CORE) officials were at the fair talking about lion-fish with students and what they should do if they spot one in the ocean. CORE even had several examples of the invasive fish on hand for students to observe.
V.I. Environmental Resource Station (VERS) manager Jamie Irving brought two friends along with him to the fair. Bunny and Rabbit are red-footed tortoises and Irving taught students the difference between turtles and tortoises, while leaving at least one student hoping for a new pet soon.
"I'm going to ask my Mom if I can get a pet tortoise," said one St. John Christian Academy student.
Students were able to tear cotton sheets to be used by Maho Bay Campground's loom, turning the recycled sheets into beautiful rugs and bags. Dan Kreofsky of Maho Bay displayed his beautiful counter tops made with crushed glass and cement.
"The glass is the aggregate," said Kreofsky. "You don't need any sand or concrete."
Using colored glass collected at the campground, Kreofsky created the counters for the new units recently completed at Estate Concordia Preserve and hoped to spread the word about the beautiful and eco-friendly counter tops.
"Even just crushing the glass, greatly reduces the space these bottles would take up in the landfill," he said.
Delroy "Ital" Anthony showed students local plants and examples of jewelry and toys he crafted from trees, plants and seeds.

"I'm here making sure these kids know what these plants are and all the things they can do," said Anthony. "And I'm making sure they are paying attention."
Virgin Islands Marine Advisory Service students at the University of the Virgin Islands brought a four paneled mural for students to paint. The mural is part of the group's "The Reef is Closer Than You Think" campaign and officials hoped to hang the mural along the VINP field fence.
Other Earth Day Fair attendees included Annie Caswell of Kissed by Fire Creations, who showed students how to create pottery pendants, the St. Thomas Hibiscus Society, Animal Care Center, VI Waste Management Authority,
UVTs Cooperative Extension Services and the VI. Urban and Community Forestry Council.
Students also enjoyed face painting, yoga, drumming, hula hooping and digging in the playground sand for artifacts with VINP archaeologists.
Friends officials were thrilled with day's success.
"Everything is going so well," said Audrey Perm, the group's program manager. "The fair is going better than I ever expected. This is the best one yet and I'm already thinking of ideas to make next one's even more exciting."

"Inside Job" Inspiration
I got home Friday night, got some junk food and a margarita and sat down to watch PBS, my favorite night of the week. And the cable was out.
I thought for a minute about going to Home Depot and remembered that I had a couple of movies. Well, I watched "Inside Job." If you want to take part in fixing our way of life watch this movie and then work on it.
Capitalism is not created to be a way to see who does the best
by ending up with all the money. That is an addiction to money, just like meth, the thrill of it produces so much dopamine that they just can't stop. That's why we need strict Capitalism laws like confining the financial system and getting them away from the leaders of this country, so, we can talk to them.
Capitalism was created as a way for each of us to be able to focus our desires on getting good at something we want to do, like
making a pot, or fishing, or advancing science, or teaching children to trade for the things that we need to survive and thrive.
Since I was a kid I wondered why Jesus kicked over the money changers' tables, why was it so bad to make money while not creating something real in return to give to your fellow human beings?
Anyway, if it gets straightened out before its too late art will have won.
Greg Miller
Virgin Islands Bailout?
Would the federal government have to bail the Virgin Islands out of its financial mess? Will be continue to view tourism as our only means of income? What would happen if the cruise ships stopped sailing into our ports or planes stopped landing at the airports?
How long could we hold out? One, two or maybe three months on reserve funds? Experts say we should have six months of emergency cash. The way things are running, homes, businesses and governments are overextended in the expense column.
It appears that even as we preach "those who forget the past
are doomed to repeat it," our lives reflect a pattern of consume now, pay later. That would be fine if our finances weren't tied to a fickle industry.
What would happen if another island drew away our customers or a hurricane shut things down for several months? Playing financial games close to the vest could mean the unthinkable � asking the federal government to give us cash.
We can't even ask for a loan because our hands are tied to the plow of one field. Dependence on tourism is putting all our crabs in one barrel. We have seen the consequences on cities which depended
on car manufacturers. The trickle down effects are devastating.
I realize that there is financial bleeding right now, but things will get worse if we turn our backs on our most important assets. That is ourselves.
We are intelligent, hardworking, God-fearing people who know how to use the island's resources to provide for our families.
The ocean is another viable factor. While our government is trying to balance the budget, let's put our minds together to create a second and third industry.
Blessings, Emmanuel Prince

Senate Still Ignoring Financial Crisis, According to Governor John deJongh
St John Tradewinds
On Monday, April 25, Governor John deJongh once again expressed his concerns about the fact that the 29th Legislature failed to take a moment during their recent day-long session to address the lingering financial crisis facing the government and people of the Virgin Islands.
"Given that the dismissal of hundreds of Virgin Islands government employees is becoming inevitable, I find it very disturbing that there was not a single discussion in the formal session of the Legislature last Wednesday as to how we bridge the remaining current fiscal year deficit," deJongh said. "The Senate is very much aware that based on current projections, the limited cash in the government's coffers will run out by end of summer which means we will have no choice but to terminate employees and curtail vital government services to our communities."
Months ago deJongh's administration laid out a roadmap to bridge the shortfall which the Senate opted to ignore, according to the governor.
"Instead, they passed very little meaningful legislation bridging that gap, much of which I was forced to veto," he said. "To date, we have not seen
"Instead, they passed very little meaningful legislation bridging that gap, much of which I was forced to veto. To date, we have not seen any further proposals from the Senate to close this deficit."

any further proposals from the Senate to close this deficit."
The governor reiterated his call for all elected leaders of the territory to come together and develop a plan that addresses the fiscal crisis facing the Virgin Islands and avoid the catastrophic effects that will begin to take shape as early as June.
"We cannot continue to ignore the fact that between now and the end of September, absent any meaningful proposals and decisive action, we cannot reduce the projected deficit," said deJongh.

Storm Water Mitigation Road Work Getting Underway This Week Across Coral Bay
Continued from Page 7
last week. Carlson will also pave a swale on William Marsh Road, the first road crossing the valley floor on the right after Love City Mini Mart, explained Coldren.
"They're going to pave a one lane swale near the main gut to help keep water erosion from being caused by the flows of water into the gut along the road," she said.
Construction crews will also be installing a pipe arch across the gut deeper into the valley, Coldren added.
"If you take that road all the way back to the upper corner below Centerline Road, that is actually 6F and 6G Carolina, we will be putting a pipe arch across the gut there," said Coldren.
The final paving project commencing shortly is the bottom of Mill Vista Road, the first right along Centerline Road out of Coral Bay traveling toward Cruz Bay.
Crews will be paving the intersection where the road meets Centerline Road, explained Coldren.
"The water will be directed properly into the gut in the Mill Vista area, which will stop mud and rocks from spilling into the roadway," said the CBCC president.
Residents in the Mill Vista and the Carolina Valley areas are also taking advantage of the opportunity to pave more of their roadways, Coldren added.
"The residents in those areas are coming together to do significant road paving projects of their own which compliment the work we are doing," she said. "They are spending a lot of time and money and we're really grateful that they are being full partners in these projects."
"Department of Planning and Natural Resources has also been very helpful in supporting these projects," Coldren said.
CBCC officials advised residents in these Coral Bay neighborhoods to talk with homeowners associations and construction crews to be apprised of any limited road closures.
"Keep your eyes out and talk with homeowners associations and construction crews so that everything goes smoothly," said Coldren. "We appreciate all the cooperation to make these projects run as smoothly as possible."
Crews will be working on several projects simultaneously and work should wrap up within a month, Coldren added.
For more information on the upcoming road work or CBCC's other storm water projects, call the group at 776-2099.

St. John CZM Takes Action on Three Requests
Continued from Page 3 ferred to a new developer and construction activity is resumed under the CZM permit," according to the request.
Adopting staff findings and recommendations, the St. John CZM Committee voted unanimously to grant the modification request, allowing the receiver to temporarily proceed under "during construction monitoring" plans with reduced monitoring of seagrass, coral, sedimentation and water quality. The temporary modification will last only until construction activity resumes at the site, according to St. John CZM members. WAPA Request Tabled
The VI. Water And Power Authority took the floor next with Amy Dempsy of Biolmpact detailing the utility's request to modify its permit in order to run a backup electrical cable from Red Hook, St. Thomas to Frank Bay, St. John.
Dempsy showed St. John CZM Committee members pictures of the existing pipeline and images of the new cable's planned location. The new cable would "provide redundancy so that if the other cables are lost or damaged, there will be full electrical power for the island of St. John," according to the request.
WAPA Engineer Cordelle Jacobs, however, was unable to answer questions from the committee regarding three utility poles in Frank Bay, prompting the committee to table the request.
Under questioning from committee members Perm and Hills, Jacobs, admitting not knowing details of WAPA's St. John substation.
"My boss couldn't make it here today," Jacobs said.
"If we have a WAPA representative, you have to know about the area you are landing the cable," said Hills.
The committee voted unanimously to table the request. CZM staff pledged to communicate with WAPA in order to bring the modification request back to the group as quickly as possible.
The St. John CZM Committee's final action of the afternoon was a decision on Westin Resort and Villa's modification request to allow beach nourishment, extend the location of its tents, allow the permanent placement of beach chairs, extend the location of its beach tents and replace the concrete slab on the beach side of Snorkels Bar and Restaurant.
Adopting staff findings and recommendations, the committee granted several of the permittee's requests, while denying the permanent placement of beach chairs. Citing the Open Shoreline Act, the committee prohibited the permanent placement of chairs within the 50 foot shoreline setback on the beach.
In their request for modification, Westin officials cited damage from Tropical Storm Otto, which washed sand into the bay, causing a seven foot drop on the beach. While immediate regrading occurred for the safety of hotel guests, 1,700 cubic yards of sand are still needed to restore the beach, according to Westin's modification request. Committee members granted

this portion of the request.
The committee okayed Westin's request to erect a large tent at the resort's Palm Terrace, located away from the beachfront and above an existing concrete slab. The tent will not be permanent, but could be in place for one week, two to three times a year, according to the request.
Westin officials also got approval to erect tents on the beach, as long they are removed by noon the day following their use, according to St. John CZM Committee members.
The committee also approved Westin's request to replace the concrete slab for Snorkel's Beach Bar as long as the new slab is the same size as the current one.
Only Sewer and Hills � who both voted to adopt staff findings � weighed in on the measures, however, because committee member Perm abstained from voting. Owner of Perm's Trucking, a sand vendor, Perm said he was had a conflict of interest in the vote but lauded Westin officials for their due diligence.
"I recused myself because my company has a potential interest in part of the project," said Perm. "I am a sand vendor and I did a project for Westin seven years ago, before f was a St. John CZM Committee member. J talked to Westin's general manger seven months ago and cautioned him to follow all procedures of protocol."
"I want to applaud the Westin for following all the correct steps and here we are seven months later," said Perm.
The committee was still able to form a quorum, with Perm only abstaining from voting on the Westin requests for modification.

Sisterhood Agenda's "SHE" Celebrates National Women's Health Week on St. John
St. John Tradewinds
Sisterhood Agenda will implement "Sisters: Healthy and Empowered" (SHE) weight control and Wellness System in celebration of National Women's Health Week during the week of May 9.
Each day of the week, Sisterhood Agenda will provide SHE activities, health information and coordinate fitness demonstrations specifically for residents on St. John. Sponsored by the federal Office on Women's Health, residents on St. John are targeted due to lack of fitness centers and gyms on the island, health risk factors and high rates of obesity/overweight.
"It's our time," said Angela Coleman, Sisterhood Agenda president. "Sisterhood Agenda is here to empower women and girls in the Virgin Islands and we have to address the disproportionate number of us who are having health difficulties like hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, and stroke."
"We see it in our families, but we can prevent many of these issues if we make healthy food choices and get fit," said Coleman.
Local food markets like Starfish Market and Deli Grotto will promote healthy eating

Joining deJongh for the ceremony at the West Indian Company Dock in Havensight, St. Thomas were government and university officials, representatives of the U.S. military federal administrators and business groups representatives.
DeJongh Attends NOAA's Data Bouy Launch
St. John Tradewinds
Last month Governor John deJongh attended a ceremony marking the launch of a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration data buoy that will significantly expand the territory's data delivery capacity by enhancing weather prediction, improving maritime safety, servicing tourism, and aiding overall port operations.
The ceremony was hosted by the University of the Virgin Islands Center for Marine and Environmental Studies and the Caribbean Regional Association.
The state-of-the-art buoy will collect ocean and meteorological data from multiple sensors and numerical models to support a network of monitoring systems in the Caribbean. The buoy will deliver data such as wave height and direction, current velocity, salinity, wind speeds and air and water temperatures.
High frequency radar technologies will also enable the buoy to collect surface data, a capability of enormous benefit in the event of a natural disaster or emergency situation at sea.
"Our advanced underwater and ocean monitoring capabilities are increasingly important in guiding the Virgin Islands toward sound ocean policy, and enables a new leadership in meteorological and oceanographic studies," said deJongh said.
The governor also noted the opportunity "to leverage partnerships and resources to exponentially expand our local and regional information network."
The buoy is part of a network of fifteen weather stations and three buoys placed in Caribbean waters, comprising the Caribbean Integrated Coastal Ocean Observing System (CariCOOS). The other two buoys were previously placed off the coast of Puerto Rico.
Scientists from the University of the Virgin Islands and the University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez who comprise the CariCOOS, will oversee the buoy as part of the Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS), a partnership of federal, regional and private sector groups that work to improve ocean monitoring across the country.
Joining deJongh for the ceremony at the West Indian Company Dock in Havensight, St. Thomas were government and university officials, representatives of the U.S. military, federal administrators and business groups, including Captain Zdenka Willis, Director of IOOS; Dr. Nasseer Idrisi, Sub-regional Coordinator, CariCOOS; Edward Thomas, CEO/WICO; Captain Mark Sa-bino, CaRA Stakeholders Council; Captain Marjorie Smith, CaRA Stakeholders Council; Dr. David Hall, UVI President; and Jorge Corredor, CaRA Council Chairman.

With traditional dancers in bright madras, the annual Folklife Festival is always a treat.
20th Annual Folklife Festival Is Scheduled for May 26-28
By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds The 20th Annual Folklife Festival will take over the Annaberg Sugar Mill Ruins from Thursday morning, May 26, through Saturday night, May 28.
The brainchild of V.I. National Park Ranger Denise Georges, the annual festival is usually hosted during Black History month in February. This year, however, Georges was dealing with the illness of a close family member and was forced to postpone the event.
"I could not do it in February this year," said Georges. "The festival was postponed this year due to the illness and death of my mother Melonita Newton Georges, 95."
While the festival will be hosted a few months later than normal, the usual delights of insightful presenters, exciting dancers and local crafts are certain to not disappoint.
The theme this year is "A Cultural Potpourri for All A We," and will focus on the commonality of the African Caribbean Diaspora.
Presenters include Dr. Rita Pratt, Director of African Bahamian Diaspora at Henderson College; V.I. Cultural Institute Director Myron Jackson; author, storyteller, linguist and historian Dr. Gilbert Sprauve; Annice Canton, librarian and educator; poet and author Tregenza Roach; and VTNP Carib-
bean Historian Milagros Flores.
"Discussions will focus on the Caribbean-wide commonalities that include the natural and cultural heritage shared within the region," said Georges.
The fair will also feature dance performances by Lockheart Elementary School, St. Lucia Association Dancers, Dominican Association Dancers, St. Thomas Heritage Dancers and St. John Cultural Dancers. Koko and the Sunshine Band will provide live music and Irvin "Brownie" Browne will return as emcee extraordinaire for the Folklife Festival.
Fair-goes will also be able to enjoy the crafts of Sonia Sprauve, Yolanda Morten, Mario Benjamin, Teresa Brown, Jane Johannes, Justin Todman, Avelino Samuel and Esther Frett, Georges added.
Be sure to stop by the vendors and check out seine net making, broom making, jewelry made with local natural materials, wood turning and more.
"We are going to have bush tea and dumb bread and I'm trying to get the best Mauby in the islands too," said Georges.
Students from across St. John and St. Thomas will attend the fair on both days. Thursday's events will kick off at 10 a.m. and wrap up at 3 p.m. and be geared to elementary school students, explained Georges.
"The first day we will gear
our presentations for students in kindergarten to sixth grade," she said. "This year I developed a curriculum so we made it specific to elementary school students on Thursday."
On Friday, the fair will be geared to engage students in seventh grade through 12th grade and run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Georges added.
The fun starts under the stars
on Saturday night from 6 to 9 p.m. and attendees are asked to bring a flashlight and chair. All three days of the fair are free of charge and open to the public.
