Nothing Personal, But Whitman Browne


Not Happy About Transfering to GBS


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
The incoming principal of Guy
Benjamin School has nothing
against Coral Bay, he just doesn't
want to work there.
Late last month, Department
of Education officials announced
sweeping changes to public school
administration throughout the
Virgin Islands. On St. John, Ju-
lius E. Sprauve School principal
Mario Francis was transferred to
Edith Williams Alternative Acad-
emy on St. Thomas, while current
GBS principal Dionne Wells was
transferred to Julius E. Sprauve
School.
Among other changes in the St.
Thomas/St. John District, DOE
officials also announced the clos-
ing of Evelyn Marcelli School on
St. Thomas. The current principal
of Marcelli, Whitman Browne -
who lives in Estate Wintberg on
St. Thomas - was assigned to
take over at GBS in Coral Bay.
In an interview with St. John
Tradewinds last week, Browne
said he has nothing against St.
John or Coral Bay or GBS, but be-
lieved that his transfer was politi-
cally motivated.
"I am not positive about this
transfer at all," said Browne. "I
don't mind coming to work on
St. John, but I don't think it's fair
for me, who lives in Wintberg, St.
Thomas, to come to Coral Bay for
work each day. It's not attractive to


"The is history of sending people from St.
Thomas to Coral Bay is a strategy to victimize
and harass them. It's political - I know it's po-
litical. I didn't support Governor deJongh and I
will not support deJongh."

- Whitman Browe, new Guy Benjamin Elementary School principal for 2011-12


me at all."
Browne is not the first principal
to be transferred to the small Coral
Bay elementary school as punish-
ment, he explained.
"The history of sending people
from St. Thomas to Coral Bay is
a strategy to victimize and harass
them," said Browne. "It's politi-
cal - I know it's political. I didn't
support Governor deJongh and I
will not support deJongh."
"This is well known on St.
Thomas," Browne said.
Browne has been working in
education since 1984 when he was
a consultant for the Department
of Education. Following that, he
taught at Addelita Cancryn before
taking over as assistant principal
at Charlotte Amalie High School.
Browne also worked for Governor
Turnbull's administration as a spe-
cial assistant to the governor.
After Turnbull's administration,
Browne taught at Gladys Abra-
ham and then became principal of


Evelyn Marcelli School in 2008.
Browne has earned certifications
in both elementary and secondary
education and has helped Marcelli
meet its Annual Yearly Progress
benchmarks since 2008, he added.
Marcelli is set to close at the
end of this 2011 school year and
Browne is still not exactly sure
why, he explained.
"The reasons change every
day," he said. "Nothing is wrong
with the school. The school is more
successful and better prepared for
the future of education than other
schools they are leaving open."
"The teachers are very upset,"
Browne said. "The students are
also sad. They have their chins in
their hands each morning."
Despite the confusion, Marcelli
is slated to close at the end of the
month. DOE officials have not
commented about future uses of
the building.
For his new assignment, Browne

Fees for VIPD Services Have Increased

V.I. Police Department Commissioner Novelle Francis remind-
ed the community that fees for services provided by the depart-
ment to the public increased as of Wednesday, June 1.
The fee increase was first announced more than two weeks ago
on May 13. The services that were increased includes, but is not
limited to, police and traffic records and reports, fingerprints, fire-
arms, various permits and security licenses.
The complete list of increased fees can be viewed on the VIPD
website at www.vipd.gov.vi or can be requested at the Records
Bureau located at the Leander Jurgen Command on St. John.

VIPD Refutes Unofficial Security Claim
Assistant Police Commissioner Raymond Hyndman comment-
ed last week on a recent advertisement that used the name of the
V.I. Police Department without permission.
"While security at various events has been necessary and strong-
ly encouraged, a recent announced advertisement indicated that
the Virgin Islands Police Department was providing security for a
lingerie fashion show," said Hyndman. "I, along with Police Com-
missioner Novelle Francis, would like to set the record straight by
saying no authorization was given to anyone within or outside of
the department to provide security at that event."
"The VIPD denounces any advertisements which use the name
of the VIPD without authorization," said Hyndman.

Ward To Face Third Trial for Cockayne Murder

Judge Brenda Hollar "reluctantly" denies defenses motion to dismiss


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Jahlil Ward is heading back to
V.I. Superior Court to face murder,
assault and weapons charges for
the third time.
In an order dated May 26, 2011,
V.I. Superior Court Judge Brenda
Hollar "reluctantly" denied Ward's
motion to dismiss. In doing so, the
judge did not rule out the possibil-
ity of a future dismissal.
Ward is charged with murder-
ing 21-year-old Jamie Cockayne
on June 19, 2007, in downtown
Cruz Bay. Cockayne - a Pennsyl-
vania resident who was on St. John
for a few months awaiting work in
the British Virgin Islands - was
stabbed eight times, including
in the femoral artery, outside the
Fashion Palace just after midnight
on June 19, 2007.
The stabbing occurred about a
half hour after Cockayne got into
an altercation in a Cruz Bay bar
with Ward, and Anselmo Boston
and Kamal Thomas.
Boston and Thomas were ar-
rested in August 2007 and held
on murder, assault and weapons
charges. Ward was arrested on
June 27, 2008 and faced his first
trial - which was joined with the
two co-defendants - in October
2008.
After a five-day trial, a jury
found Ward guilty of first-degree
murder, third degree assault and
weapons charges. Boston and
Thomas were both acquitted of
murder, but found guilty of third-
degree assault and weapons charg-
es. All of those convictions, how-
ever, were eventually thrown out
by Hollar.
Ward's conviction was set aside
in July 2009 when his attorney
learned of a piece of evidence
which the prosecution had not
shared. Thomas and Boston's con-
victions were thrown out in Sep-
tember 2009 after Hollar learned
that the Cockayne family had paid
cash rewards to several witnesses
who testified during the trial.
Ward's second trial was separat-
ed from that of Boston and Thom-
as. Boston and Thomas faced their
second jury in March 2010, and
were convicted of third-degree as-


sault, weapons and simple assault
charges.
Hollar sentenced the men to 48
months injail with 18 months sus-
pended for the third-degree assault
charge and a consecutive 10 year
term, with two years suspended,
for the weapons charge. Both men
were also fined about $11,750 for
the charges.
Ward faced his second jury in
December 2009. That jury found
Ward guilty of second-degree
murder, third-degree assault and
weapons charges. That conviction
was tossed out in July 2010 and
Ward has been awaiting Hollar's
decision on his motion to dismiss
since then.
Ward has been awaiting this
news from Edwin Penn's Estate
Adrian residence since Hollar
granted him a bail reduction in Feb-
ruary 2011. Hollar allowed Ward
to post 10 percent of his $100,000
bail to secure his release.
Hollar's order means Ward will
return to VI. Superior Court to
face the second-degree murder, as-
sault and weapons charges for the
third time. According to Hollar's
opinion, however, the judge seems
to have just barely denied Ward's
motion to dismiss.
In Hollar's Memorandum Opin-
ion, filed on May 26, the VI. Su-
perior Court judge used strong
language outlining numerous
instances of prosecutorial mis-
conduct, warning that any more
violations would lead her to "im-
mediately dismiss this matter with
prejudice."
Hollar cited numerous "Brady"
and "Giglio" evidence and viola-
tions in her opinion, painting a
picture of the V.I. Attorney Gen-
eral's Office not fully disclosing
evidence to the defense.
In Brady vs. Maryland, "the
Supreme Court held that 'the sup-
pression by the prosecution of
evidence favorable to an accused
upon request violates due process
where the evidence is material ei-
ther to guilt or to punishment irre-
spective of the good or bad faith
of the prosecution,'" according to
Hollar's opinion.
In her opinion, Hollar cited
nine instances of the prosecution


Jahlil Ward

making Brady violations dating
back to Ward's first trial, by ei-
ther withholding evidence or not
fully disclosing evidence which
would have been favorable to the
defense.
Giglio vs. United States deals
with a case in which the Supreme
Court ruled that prosecutors must
disclose evidence relating to the
reliability of a witness. Hollar
cited two instances of the prosecu-
tion making Giglio violations in
her Memorandum Opinion.
"Since 2008, the prosecution
in this case has either suppressed
or failed to timely disclose Brady/
Giglio evidence," Hollar wrote in
the opinion. "Undaunted by the
granting of two new trials, this un-
abated conduct has persisted."
A large portion of Hollar's
opinion is dedicated to prosecution
witness Glanville Frazer, who also
testified in the consolidated cases
"People vs. Jahwada Jones" and
"People vs. Lawrence Powell."
Frazer, who was a main pros-
ecution witness in both of Ward's
trials, was declared a hostile wit-
ness after recanting his statements
and giving conflicting testimony in
court.
Frazer first identified Lawrence
Powell and Jahwada Jones as the
assailants in another brutal Cruz
Bay incident.
"Prior to the Court's inquiry, the
People had not acknowledged, re-
vealed or disclosed to the defense
that Glanville Frazer was a com-
mon witness in the two cases; both
of which involved intoxicated,
non-resident, Caucasian victims


"Although the Court will reluctantly refrain
from invoking its inherent/supervisory powers
to dismiss the above styled matter with
prejudice at this time, it will impose a sanction
above and beyond the granting of a new
trial in order to deter the People's apparent
lawlessness. If, however, the prosecution
insists on proving to the Court that it is 'bent
on mischief' and commits one more Brady
or Giglio violation, the Court will, without
hesitation, immediately dismiss this matter
with prejudice."
- V.I. Superior Court Judge Brenda Hollar


on the island of St. John that were
brutally assaulted by allegedly
multiple Black assailants," Hol-
lar wrote in her May 26 opinion.
"Both victims were also apparent-
ly seeking to purchase drugs from
'locals' on St. John."
In court Frazer recanted his ear-
lier statements about Lawrence
Powell and Jahwada Jones, saying
that Ariel Powell, who was alive
when Cockayne was killed but
has since died, had committed the
crime. Hollar included a transcript
from the January 2011 Jones/Pow-
ell trial in her opinion detailing
Frazer's change of tune.

James Cockayne was murdered
and Frazer admits that Ariel Pow-

'misidentify' innocent persons in
order to deflect attention from his
culpability," Hollar wrote in her
opinion.
Assistant Attorney Generals
Claude Walker and Courtney Re-
ese, the prosecutors for the case,
still have not dealt with these vio-
lations, Hollar wrote.

Annual Wagapalooza.


Inclement Weather, Postponement Doesn't

Stop WAGA from Reaching Fundraising Goal


By Andrea Milam
St. John Tradewinds
Despite a last-minute postpone-
ment thanks to heavy rains and a
muddy Winston Wells ball field,
Wagapalooza, the premiere fund-
raiser for the St. John Animal Care
Center, raked in close to $25,000,
nearly reaching the ACC's fund-
raising goal.
ACC board members and volun-
teers scrambled to reschedule the
event after heavy rains drenched
the territory the night before Wa-
gapalooza's originally scheduled
date of Saturday, May 21. Waga-
palooza was rescheduled for Sat-
urday, May 28, and the event was
moved to the V.I. National Park
ball field.
"Even with having to resched-
ule and moving to a venue we'd
never used before, we've raised
close to $24,000," said ACC board
of directors president B.J. Harris.
"We have to thank everybody be-
cause rescheduling and moving
the venue was difficult, and every-
body was just tremendously sup-
portive along the way."
The change of venue worked
out so well, in fact, that the ACC

New Course Record Set and Almost $25K Raised 8th Annual Power Swim


By Andrea Milam
St. John Tradewinds
Sixteen-year-old Bryson Mays
of St. Croix won last year's Friends
of the VI. National Park Beach
to Beach Power Swim, but that
wasn't good enough for him.
Mays returned to this year's
swim on Sunday morning, May
29, where he not only won again,
but he also broke the course re-
cord, previously set by Kieran
Locke, also of St. Croix.
Mays swam the long course,
from Maho Bay to Hawksnest
beach, in just 1:10:34, more than
a minute faster than the previous
record of 1:11:39.
"To think about him swimming
from Maho to Hawksnest that
quickly is pretty awesome," said
Friends president Joe Kessler.
In addition to seeing the course
record broken, the swim also at-
tracted 204 registered swimmers,
and the event raised $25,000 for
the V.I. National Park's Learn to
Swim program. This year's Race

brought in even more money.


Competitors came from as far

One notable competitor was Ja-
mie Patrick, an ultraswimmer who
recently swam across Lake Tahoe
and back, and plans to swim 240


miles nonstop in the Sacramento
River this August.
Patrick hosted an open water
swim clinic the day before the
Power Swim and donated the clin-
ic's proceeds to the Friends.
"It was very cool having him
there," said Kessler. "He brought
some stuff from his sponsors that
we gave to the winners, including
the best prize of all, a waterproof
MP3 player."
Everyone from the incredibly
experienced Patrick down to the
youngest swimmers got out of the
water safely thanks to numerous
volunteers manning 25 kayaks,
five safety boats, the St. John Res-
cue boat and National Park Ser-
vice patrol boats, which kept an
eye on competitors throughout the
course.

Don't miss the chance to stock up on
local, organic produce at the first monthly
St. John Farmers Market.


I !


St. John Tradewinds
Tiny tots move fluidly in a single line, their steps
in sync with each other and the music. School-aged
kids clad in multicolor costumes leap, pirouette and
sashay across the stage in a kaleidoscope of motion.
Teens and adults employ body movement, manner-
isms and music to tell a story and entertain.
This is the performance audiences will be treated to
during the 19th annual recital of the Caribbean Dance
School's students on St. Thomas at Reichhold Center
June 11, starting at 7 p.m.
"In the midst of the challenges and stress of our
daily lives, we are surrounded by the wellsprings of
hope and joy, our children," said Monty Thompson,
CDS artistic director. "Our students, through lively
expression, are gaining a legacy of responsibility, co-
operation and health for now and in the future."
Thompson, a native of Trinidad; Jill Thompson, a
long time St. Croix resident; and Curliss Solomon-
John, a native born Crucian, formed the CDS on
St. Croix in 1977 and the St. Thomas branch of the
school in 1993.
CDS is the official school of the Caribbean Dance
Company of the Virgin Islands, and is one of the larg-
est youth service organizations, one of the oldest sur-
viving non-profits, and the only independent cultural


agency in the territory devoted to traditional Carib-
bean cultural performances at home and abroad.
Over the years, the CDS has taught hundreds of
young people, who in turn have enrolled second
and even third generation students. Currently, there
are 450 students enrolled in the school both on St.
Thomas and St. Croix. Some students have eventually
become part of the Caribbean Dance Company. Over
the last twelve years, the Company has performed in
56 states and countries ranging from the U.S.'s Mid-
Atlantic region, to Europe, Israel and Africa.
Tickets for the performance are available from
CDS students or at the door at Reichhold center for
$15 per person. For more information call 778-8824.

A monthly farmers market is coming to St. John
starting in June.
Karen Samuel started organizing the event after a
huge crowd turned out for Department of Agriculture
farmers market in the VI. National Park ball field this
winter.
"Everyone who came out to the Department of
Agriculture's farmers market said we should do this
more often on St. John," said Samuel.
That's all it took for Samuel to get organizing.
Starting Sunday, June 12, farmers from the St. Thom-
as cooperative We Grow Food along with individual
farmers, will set up their produce at the lower parking
lot of the Lumberyard, near the V.I. Water And Power
Authority's old office.
Stop by the market between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on
June 12 and then on the second Sunday of each month
to stock up on organic, locally grown produce and
value added items like baked goods, jams and jellies.
Samuel is starting the monthly market with St.
Thomas farmers, but is also hoping to interest St. John
farmers to come out and even set up another market
day, she explained.
"If there is more interest and St. John farmers want
to come out, we could host a market on a different
Sunday," said Samuel.
For more information or to inquire about selling at
the market, call Samuel at 776-6706.

tive director since 2006, Jan Kinder stepped down from the
position on June 1.
Kinder, who is relocating to the Fort Lauderdale/Miami
area, has accepted to be on the SJSA board of directors
while the school's assistant director Kim Wild - who has
been with SJSA more than a decade herself - has taken
over as acting director.
"The perfect choice to be at the helm as acting director is
Kim Wild," said Kinder. "I'm elated she accepted the posi-
tion and confident in her ability to lead. I support her ideas
and vision for the future of SJSA."
"Kim has been an invaluable member of the school over
the past 13 years," Kinder said. "As a cherished colleague
and friend, I thank her. I could not have done my part with-
out her."
Kinder, however, wore many hats in her duties at SJSA,
including the school's music education director and Orff in-
structor. She has tapped several impressive residents to help
SJSA fill those roles
"Before stepping down as executive director on June 1,
after 27 years being with the school administratively and as
a faculty member, I've delegated my responsibilities to a
few people I respect and admire," said Kinder.
Bringing years of experience, Eddie Bruce is the art
school's new music education director, Kinder explained.
"His remarkable music experience and knowledge base
will complement Kim's excellence in dance education," she
said. "As a faculty member of both our in-school and after-
school programs, he will be able to assist with the further
development of the in-school curriculum, and the music and


"His [Eddie Bruce] remarkable music
experience and knowledge base will
complement Kim's excellence in
dance education. As a faculty member
of both our in-school and after-school
programs, he will be able to assist
with the further development of the
in-school curriculum, and the music
and instrumental section of SJSA."

instrumental section of SJSA."
"I am grateful Eddie accepted this position," Kinder said.
"We have shared similar ideas and visions over the years.
Exciting additional programs for our youth will be starting
in the fall."
To head the school's Orff Schulwerk Music for Children
program, which has been a popular early childhood music
program at the school since 1984, Kinder asked someone
she has been trying to get in the SJSA fold for years, she
explained.
"We have asked Shikima Jones to become a member of
the SJSA family for many years," Kinder said. "I am thrilled
she has agreed to join us. I am entrusting her with the Orff
Schulwerk program. SJSA will be sending her to Boston
University in August for training and certification in level I
of the Orff Schulwerk."


"I think she will be a natural at teaching the Orff music
approach," said Kinder. "Her love for music is obvious and
working with children her gift. I believe Shikima will add an
important part to our long-standing Orff program with her
use of cultural songs and stories."
Kinder also hoped that Jones would launch glee clubs
and performing choirs in the schools, she added.
In addition to the in-school Orff program, Jones will
be coordinating additional after-school classes with SJSA,
Kinder explained.
"SJSA recently partnered with the Department of Housing
Parks and Recreation with DHPR Commissioner St. Claire
Williams," she said. "Our two organizations have agreed
to work together by combining efforts to offer afterschool
and weekend arts education opportunities and classes to the
children participating in the DHPR program."
"As project coordinator for DHPR, Shikima will be a key
component and one of the teachers with classes being con-
ducted at both facilities," Kinder said.
Rounding out the SJSA family will be faculty member
Thia Muilenburg, who will be assisting Wild as the school's
music and expressive therapy coordinator.
"I have asked music therapy colleague and SJSA faculty
member, Thia Muilenburg, to help Kim as music and ex-
pressive therapy coordinator," said Kinder. "It is my wish
to once again provide sessions for children with special
needs."
Although Kinder is starting a new chapter, with so many
talented instructors taking over at SJSA, the long-running
arts school remains in great hands. The school is hosting a
"Spirits of the Tainos" summer camp from June 20 through
July 1. For more information on SJSA or the summer camp
call Wild at the school at 779-4322.

Allied Rental Center Has New Merchandise, Consistent Hours, Better Service


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Have a big renovation project
planned at the house, but don't
have that mixer needed for the
job?
Are the weeds in the yard grow-
ing out of control, but the weed
whacker is broken?
Look no further than the bright
yellow and blue building on Cen-
terline Road next to the old Mo-
ses' Laundromat location to fill all
those needs.
Allied Rental Center has been
renting and selling all sorts of
tools and equipment needed for
construction, renovation, garden-
ing and landscaping on St. John


for years. Since moving out of
Cruz Bay to the new Centerline
Road location, however, the store
has expanded its merchandise and,
with a new manager, customer ser-
vice has improved as well.
"We are a rental and equipment
sales company," said Larry San-
chez, Allied store manger. "We
rent a lot of different equipment
from air compressors and pressure
washers to concrete mixers. We
also have a lot of gardening equip-
ment like chain saws and weed
whackers."
"We also carry generators and
a lot more," Sanchez said. "We
pretty much have everything to do
with construction, gardening and


landscaping."
Allied also has merchandise
for sale and Sanchez is careful to
stock up on all the replacement
parts for the equipment the store
carries, he added.
"What we do is a lot of the
products we have for rent we also
have for sale," said Sanchez. "We
also carry all the replacement parts
someone would need. For chain
saws, we sell the saws and we also
have the chains, the spark plugs
and all of the different parts and
pieces that would be needed down
the road."
Looking just to rent equip-
ment? Allied offers daily, weekly
or monthly rates.

"We also have special rates de-
pending on how long the rental is
for," said Sanchez.
The St. John Allied store is an
outpost of the main Allied store
located in Fort Milner, St. Thomas
and owned by Sanchez's uncle
Edmundo Zayas. Having the main
store in St. Thomas also allows
Sanchez to bring specially re-
quested pieces of equipment to St.
John to rent or sale, he explained.
"We can bring things over
from St. Thomas and that is just
what I'm planning," said San-
chez. "I'm going to bring a lot of
new machines for sale and rental
and we're looking to renovate the
whole store."


Sanchez is also dedicated to
keeping the store open Monday
through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3
p.m. on a consistent basis, some-
thing which had been a problem for
Allied in the past, he explained.
"The hours used to be inconsis-
tent," said Sanchez. "But our regu-
lar hours will now be from 8 a.m.
to 3 p.m. Monday through Sat-
urday and we'll be here. We also
have better customer service and
we're going to be bringing new
merchandise in soon too."
Stop by Allied on Centerline
Road and check out the equipment
and tools for sale or rent. For more
information call Sanchez at the
store at 777-8090.

Omega's Adventures
by Jean Nester

St. John Tradewinds
Julius E. Sprauve School students in the fourth ;ih, isli
sixth grades took part in the author-in-residence program
this school year with award winning author Cristina Kes-
sler with help from a $1,000 donation by the Rotary Club
of St John.
St. John Tradewinds is privileged to be able print the
work created by several students for the next few weeks.
This story was written by JESS fourth grader Jean Nestor.

Omega's Adventure
by Jean Nester
My name is Omega. I'm a cheetah. I live in Africa. I have
orange skin with black spots. I'm proud because cheetahs
are the fastest animals on land. I'm lonely because African
hunters separated me from my family. They chased me away
because they thought I was in the wrong animal kingdom.
I asked Earl the Elephant, "Can you help me with my
mission?"
Earl said, "What mission?"
I told him, "Can you help me find my family?"
Earl the Elephant said, "Oh yes I can, but I need to ask
my mommy."
I waited for 13 seconds, and then I went to Onix the Rhi-
no's house. I knocked on his door. Onix's mother opened
the door and said with a deep voice, "Hello Omega."
I asked her, "Can Onix come on an adventure?"
Onix's mother said, "Yes he may."
Then Onix squeezed through the door past his mother
and said, "Bye Mommy."
So Earl the Elephant joined Onix the Rhino and I, and we
started the search.
We went to the Forest of Mystical Creatures, and walked
down the path. We came to a sign that said BEWARE OF
THE ANNOYING PARROTS!
Earl said, "That is not true. There are no annoying par-
rots."
And so we went down the path and saw a bunch of par-
rots talking.
They were making so much noise that Earl screamed,
No%\ I believe that sign!"
We continued walking on the path. We saw sunlight right
in front of us and I said, "Hurray, we're out of the forest."
Onix heard a herd of zebra running past them. They
knocked him down.
I saw creatures that looked just like me so I ran towards
them. Earl the Elephant said, "Wait up!"
When I got there I saw my family in a wooden cage. Onix
ran right into it and broke the cage.
My family was free. I had tears of joy in my eyes. We
walked home safely together. We took the long way instead
of walking through the Forest of Mystical Creatures.
When we got home there was a beautiful sunset. I told
Earl the Elephant and Onix the Rhino, "Thank you very
much for helping me find my family."
My family and I lived happily ever after.

Second Annual VIPD Youth Summer Fair Is Big Success


St. John Tradewinds
On Saturday, May 28, the V.I.
National Park ball field was filled
with happy children having fun
and adults dedicated to ensur-
ing that children have safe, posi-
tive activities during the summer
months.
The event was the 2nd Annual
St. John Summer Youth Fair, orga-
nized by the St. John Community
Integration Team and V.I. Police
Department.
The fair brought youth service
providers, especially those who
host summer camps and have
youth employment services, to the
public. It was designed as a "one
stop shopping for families" said
Melody Rames, VIPD Public Re-
lations Director and CIT liaison.
Families came to the fair with
their children in tow to choose a
summer program that fit their in-
terests. More than a dozen camps
present at the fair offered fine arts,
theatre, music, dance archeology
science, marine biology, pottery,
glass blowing and much more.
There were camps for those as
young as three to teenagers.
For the older teens, the Depart-
ment of Labor was present with


their Youth Net program. This
program is valuable for young
people just entering the work-
force. St. John teens can connect
with a Youth Net advisor on Mon-
days and Fridays at the Battery.
The program is offered territory-
wide.
Kalun Eugene came to the fair
with the intention of getting infor-
mation on his first summer job.
"I'll take anything for now,"
said the 14-year old who came to
the fair with his mother.
Shermaine Petersen-Neilsen,
the VIPD's recruiter, handed out
information to the youth and cau-
tioned them that staying on the
right path while they are young
attracts good job opportunities for
the future.
"Develop good character, good
morals and get involved in posi-
tive activities because that's what
employers are looking for, that is
the basis for your first resume,"
she said.
Linda Bechstien is the CIT
chairperson and was pleased at
the turnout.
"We had a good turnout, the
providers came and the children
came," said Bechstien. "This is

a good opportunity for St. John
children to interact with the po-
lice and build good relationships.
Next year we want to place more
emphasis on the parents attending,
because some children wanted to
sign up for a summer activity but
needed a parent's signature."
The CIT is a volunteer program
which allows civilians to meet
monthly with police and devise
methods of improving community
relations and finding solutions to


local police problems.
The highlight of the day was a
demonstration by the VIPD K-9
officers and dogs. Children and
adults were astounded at the dis-
cipline the dogs displayed when
told to heel, stay, or obey other
commands. The dogs showed
their skill in attacking a suspect
and even leaping high into the air
to tackle a bad guy and bring him
down.
Later, the police cadets and


local children played a kickball
game. After three innings, and a
lot of good natured jeering, the
children won, for the second year
in a row, much to the light hearted
chagrin of the cadets.
As the Second Annual Sum-
mer Youth Fair came to a close the
children could be heard exclaim-
ing their fun.
"We had a great time," they
said. "We can't wait until next
year!"

St. John Tradewinds, June 6-12, 2011 13


Free Baseball Clinic Supported by MLB Players Alumni


St. John Tradewinds
In a landmark effort to revive
the game of baseball on St. John,
the Love City Live! Youth Enrich-
ment Program has solidified the
partnership and support of Major
League Baseball Players Alumni
Association (MLBPAA) and its
Legends for Youth program in ex-
ecuting a free baseball clinic on St.
John.
The free four day clinic, sched-
uled to take place at the Cruz Bay
National Park field from Wednes-
day, June 15, to Saturday, June 18,
will be an instructional exercise
for kids ages 4 through 12 on hit-
ting, fielding, throwing and base
running.
"The MLBPAA is excited to
partner with Glenn Philbert and the
Love City Live! Youth Enrichment
Program to bring the Legends for
Youth clinic program to the boys
and girls of St. John," said Dan
Foster, MLBPAA Chief Executive
Officer. "Promoting baseball is the
Alumni Association's mission, and
we are always eager to promote the
game in areas where there is great
potential."
There will also be a free one-
hour instructional coaches clinic
for parents and coaches covering
the techniques of teaching baseball
fundamentals.
As an inaugural event, Philbert
is hoping the first annual Love City
Live! Youth Baseball Clinic will
set the stage to rebuild the culture
of baseball/softball on St. John.
"I grew up in an era where base-
ball and softball was strong on St.
John," said Philbert. "If you were
St. Johnian, you played ball. The
ball field was where many of us
learned discipline, structure, hard
work and many other life skills."
Philbert developed his love for
baseball at a young age watching
his older brother Eric play, then
becoming a ball player himself. He
then went on to earn high school
and college baseball scholarships
and work in the baseball industry
for several years.
Being the beneficiary of lessons
learned and opportunities gained
through the sport, Philbert seeks to
rekindle the interest in baseball on
St. John and views MLBPAA as
the perfect partner to assist in his
mission.


"One of the Legends for Youth
clinic program's goals is to devel-
op a lifelong interest in the game,"
said Lance James, MLBPAA Vice
President of Development. "If we
can create excitement for the game
in the young players and their par-
ents who attend, then we can cre-
ate a strong foundation to return
and build upon the success of this
inaugural clinic."
MLBPAA was founded in 1982
with the mission of promoting
baseball, raising money for chari-
ty, and protecting the dignity of the
game through its Alumni players.

The Love City Live! Youth En-
richment Program is a newly estab-
lished division of Global Venture
Foundation, the philanthropic arm
of Global Venture Consultants,
LLC's Love City Live!.
In January, Love City Live! suc-
cessfully hosted its inaugural an-
nual event, which featured world-
renowned reggae stalwarts Third
World, and the launching of their
billboard chart climbing Patriots
album. The event, produced by
Global Venture Consultants, LLC,
served as the primary platform to
raise awareness and funding for
the company's youth outreach ini-
tiative on St. John.
"I thought it would be a great
idea to utilize a highly visible pro-
duction to give back to the commu-
nity that has given me so much,"
said Philbert, CEO of Global
Venture Consultants, LLC. "I am
humbled by the undying support I
receive from the community and
look forward to continuing to con-
tribute in my own unique way."
The clinic will have an after-
noon schedule of 3:30 p.m. to 7
p.m. Wednesday through Friday,
while Saturday (the final day)
will have a schedule of 9 a.m. to
3 p.m.
The free coaches clinic will be
conducted on Thursday evening
from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Com-
plimentary lunch will be provided
to registered clinic participants on
Saturday. Parents are encouraged
to register their future ball players
early to secure their spot. Clinic
spaces are limited and will be as-
signed on a first come, first serve


basis.
Registration forms may be col-
lected from the offices of Julius E.
Sprauve School, Guy Benjamin
School or Gift Hill School and re-
turned to Connections (both loca-


tions). For additional inquiries re-

liant example of what can be done here in the US Vir-
gin Islands when the children's welfare is at heart.
This sentiment does not resonate with the VIDOE's
decision. Why is that? Because of the ironies: Miss
Wells lives near our school; she loves our school and
does not want to leave; the students, parents, faculty
and staff, and the entire community love her and do
not want her to leave (as evidenced by the hundreds of
signatures on our petition); she's doing an absolutely
fantastic job; replacing a Principal with a Principal
does not save the VIDOE money; and her replace-
ment does not want to come here from St. Thomas!
There is no financial justification for this maneu-
ver, which seems more political than financial. It is
a no-brainer! Going through with this farce of a plan
will make all parties involved suffer the negative con-
sequences, not the least of which is our children!
Do the right thing, VIDOE, and find a solution that
will make us all proud of the Virgin Islands for put-
ting our children's education, and the priorities we all
hope you espouse, first!
Respectfully submitted,
Donna Matthias

We have all seen the headlines about the tough
economy. Inflation, rising fuel prices, and unemploy-
ment make each day a struggle for families. Business-
es face the same difficult challenges.
At Starfish Market, the cost of the food we sell
keeps rising, along with the freight to get it here, la-
bor expenses to serve you, and most recently receipts
taxes increased. Gross Receipts Tax is the tax that the
USVI government assesses on the sales made by a
business, including Starfish Market. These costs must
all be factored into the goods we sell.
But Starfish Market has worked to offset these costs
by introducing lower-priced Surefine brands on many
staple items. We've optimized our cooling systems to
reduce energy use. We work hard to negotiate buys
with our vendors so we can give you price breaks.
Many of you have taken advantage of the specials
advertised in our Starfish and Starfish Gourmet &
Wines store circulars. We appreciate that you are tak-
ing advantage of these lower prices to cut your gro-


Well, if you're talking about education, it's a big
difference. If you're discussing business, that's an-
other big one. But if you're talking about corruption,
yeah, that's the same.
Folks that want more power, prestige and money
seek to gain them in unscrupulous ways. How do we
stop this tidal wave of selfishness and greed? Actually
we can't.


cery bill.
Our stores offer a one-stop shopping location for
the best quality and selection on the island. No where
else can you find a full-service meat and deli depart-
ment, breads baked fresh daily, and a deli and pre-
pared food department that sells generous portions of
hot foods at a true value. Our produce is the best bar
none. We believe customers deserve quality and we
strive every day to balance good food at prices that
help you while keeping our store doors open.
Starfish Market continues to support the commu-
nity, both by providingjobs to over 55 employees and
by sponsoring and hosting many St. John events. We
will continue to find ways to adjust to the economy
and we look forward to brighter days ahead for you
and your families.

As the parent of two Guy Benjamin Elementary
School students, I am voicing my disappointment
with and objection to the VI. Department of Educa-
tion's decision to transfer our Principal, Miss Wells,
to Julius Sprauve School.
It is unconscionable to dismantle the very core of
a flourishing, vibrant and progressive school, at the
very moment when schools nationwide are struggling
to create cohesion and quality in their educational
programs.
Miss Wells has not only created that cohesion and
quality of education, but under her leadership, guid-
ance and direction, our school has become a "shining
star" of the US Virgin Islands!
It was not that long ago when our school was in tre-
mendous turmoil, partly due to decisions made by the
VIDOE. All that changed when Miss Wells came to be
our Principal. Not only have our school's test results
improved year after year (the very definition of "be-
ing back on track"), but it is being done in a positive,
healthy way with the total cooperation of Miss Wells,
faculty and staff, the parents and the entire commu-
nity alike (the very definition of "team work")!
If anything, Miss Wells' association with the Guy
Benjamin Elementary School needs to be supported,
lauded and held up to the highest standards as a bril-

Obituary


David Robert Trahan

St. John Tradewinds
Born to Colonel Eugene Tra-
han, a career military officer, and
Georgia Marie Colomb in Fort
Riley, Kansas, David travelled the
world while growing up and again
as a cinematographer for PBS and
a still photographer for many well-
known publications such as Na-
tional Geographic.
He settled down in Washing-
ton D.C. in the early 1970s and
became a paramedic with Fairfax
Fire and Rescue service, being the
35th certified paramedic in the na-
tion.
He moved to St. Thomas in
1978 and worked there as a para-
medic for one year before moving
to St. John in 1979. He worked
and served St. John as a paramedic
and as the head of EMS on St. John David Trahan

ernment's vision is. Or, more importantly, what is the role of St.
John in that vision?
If we as a people understood our purpose, then we could apply
our energies towards a common goal. It's not easy leading a busi-
ness or government agency. And it's probably a lot tougher lead-
ing both, but unless St. Johnians, private and public, join hands,
survival of the fittest will mean only one thing - that someone
loses.
And that loss means no income, no home and more burdens on a
stressed out welfare system. St. Johnians, we cannot continue like
this. There's no sense in having more technology, more tourists
and more taxes if we can't see where we're going.
That is a dead end street. The only way to combat our downward
slide is to raise our standards higher. Adults have to spend what
they make, do what they say and be fair in handing out justice.
May God help us.
Blessings,
Emmanual Prince

Del. Christensen Presents Judicial Nominee

Wilma Lewis to Senate Judiciary Committee


St. John Tradewinds
Delegate to Congress Donna Christensen told
the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee that Interior
Assistant Secretary Wilma Lewis "would bring an
extensive, varied and broad wealth of experience
from both the public and private sector to the Dis-
trict Court of the U.S. Virgin Islands" at confirma-
tion hearings on Tuesday, May 24.
Lewis, a native of St. Thomas, was nominated
by President Barack Obama to serve on the federal
bench.
"Assistant Secretary Lewis has served the Dis-
trict of Colombia and our Nation in some of the
most demanding positions in local and federal gov-
ernment," Christensen said.
The congresswoman outlined Lewis's service as
Asst. Secretary for Lands and Minerals Manage-
ment "at one of the most challenging times for that
agency."
Lewis also served as U.S. Attorney for the Dis-
trict of Colombia and in the private sector as a Part-
ner at Crowell and Moring, as Managing Associate
General Counsel at Freddie Mac and as an Associ-
ate at Steptoe and Johnson.
"Wilma Lewis has distinguished herself at every
turn, in college, in law school and in the coveted le-
gal positions she has held and executed with honor,
distinction and excellence," Christensen said.
Lewis was valedictorian of her All Saints Cathe-
dral High School in 1974, graduated with honors


from Swarthmore in political science in 1978 and
from Harvard Law School in 1981. She was fea-
tured in the 2003 Harvard Law Bulletin as among
the 50 female graduates who used their legal educa-
tion to "take them to extraordinary places."
The Virgin Islands Bar unanimously voted her as
the most qualified and recommended her highly for
this position.
Under questioning from Senator Amy Klobuchar
who chaired the hearing, Lewis spoke of her pre-
paredness for the office. She said her judicial tem-
perament was formed by the opportunity to serve in
a number of roles to include advocate, impartial de-
cision maker, U.S. Attorney, counselor and teacher.
"I have a strong commitment to public service,"
Lewis said. "I will be fair and firm. I want to hear
opposing perspectives and I will set the tone for a
court room where all litigants will have their day
in court."
Lewis, was accompanied by several relatives and
friends including her mother, Juta Lewis, who she
credited for her success and her brother, Warren
Lewis and his family.
"We are asking this body in confirming this out-
standing individual to give her the opportunity to do
what has always been her dream," said Christensen,
"to use all of the experience and skills she has accu-
mulated over the years to serve her beloved home."
Lewis's nomination has to be voted on by the
Committee and the full Senate.

Lt. Governor Reminds Business Owners

To File Franchise Taxes by June 30
Lieutenant Governor Gregory Francis last week reminded and
strongly encouraged corporate citizens to satisfy the franchise tax
and annual filing requirements of Titles 13 and 26 of the Virgin Is-
lands Code which requires every registered corporation (domestic
and foreign) to pay a franchise tax to the Office of the Lieutenant
Governor on or before June 30 of every year.
Statutory filing requirements and annual fees also apply to LLC,
LLP, and LLLP organizations. Non-profit corporations are required
to file Annual Reports and Financial Statements.
Failure to comply with the annual requirements will result in the
assessment of penalties and interest, non-issuance of a Certificate
of Good Standing or even administrative/involuntary dissolution.
Checks and money orders must be made payable to the Govern-
ment of the Virgin Islands. For more information, please contact
the Office of the Lieutenant Governor's Division of Corporations
and Trademarks at 776-8515 on St. Thomas.


Notary Public Applications Online
The Lieutenant Governor's Office announced last week that no-
tary public applications are now available online.
New and renewal applications, as well as the Notary Public
handbook, can be accessed at the Lieutenant Governor's website,
www.ltg.gov.vi.
Online availability of the documents enables the Lt. Gov.'s Of-
fice to be more responsive to inquiries about the notary public ap-
plication process and responsibilities.
For more information, contact the Lieutenant Governor's Office
at 774-2991 for the St. Thomas/St. John district.

Browne Not Happy About Transfer To GBS


Continued from Page 2
contends that his transfer is unfair and was
planned to push him into retirement.
"I have nothing against Guy Benjamin
School, but I don't think this is a fair assign-
ment," he said. "These things are planned.
They sit and plan their moves and they look
at the contract we have and figure out how
they can get away with these moves."
"This is punishment," said Browne. "I
can only see vindictiveness and punishment.
When principals are sent from St. Thomas
to Guy Benjamin School it is punishment."
The principal cited Jean Richards as an
example of an administrator who was trans-
ferred to GBS and soon retired.
"Jean was transferred to GBS and she
retired," Browne said. "I am getting close
to retirement and that has been the history
with the DOE. Whenever they want to give
someone a hard time, they send them to Guy
Benjamin School."
While Browne is not happy about his
transfer, he wanted to be sure that residents
understood he has nothing against GBS or
Coral Bay.
"I want the people of St. John to under-
stand that I have absolutely nothing against
them or against the school," said Browne.


"I want the school to understand that I have
nothing against GBS or the teachers or
staff there. I want them to understand that I
wouldn't come over angry at them."
"I would come with what I bring as a
professional educator to make a difference
which is what I've done at every school I've
worked," he said.
Browne is not against working on St.
John; he's more than happy to take over for
Francis at JESS, he explained.
"I have nothing against working at a
school on St. John, but why does it have to
be in Coral Bay" he said. "I would prefer
coming to JESS in Cruz Bay because when
you get off the boat you are right there. I am
certain I could go to JESS and be a success-
ful principal."
While Browne can not change his assign-
ment, he is still pondering his next move and
urged residents who want to keep Dionne
Wells at GBS to contact the DOE Commis-
sioner and the governor.
"I can't change my assignment, but I'm
still thinking about what I'm going to do,"
he said. "I think the residents should con-
vince the governor and DOE to leave Ms.
Wells at GBS. Again, I have nothing against
the school, but this is unfair to me."

Postponement Doesn't Stop 2011 Wagapalooza

the Best Look-alike category.
"This dog was slobbering like Pavlov's
dog," said Harris. "So the owner went out
in front of the crowd with his slobbering
dog, took a slug of beer, and slobbered it out
while shaking his head. The owners were
just as much fun as the animals were."
Winners in the eight separate categories,
including Best Cow Hound Costume -
where dogs donned cow costumes in honor
of this year's Western theme - were award-
ed with ribbons and plenty of applause.
"Everybody who came was a winner, and
all the dogs were perfectly behaved," said
Harris.
The majority of this year's donations
came from T-shirt sponsors, and t-shirt sales
raked in plenty of money as well. In fact,
the ACC plans to reorder more T-shirts due
to demand, so those who would like to pur-
chase one should contact the shelter at 774-
1625.
The money raised at this year's Waga-
palooza will go toward general operations
of the ACC's no-kill animal shelter, with
the exception of $2,000 donated by the St.
John Board of Realtors, which has been ear-
marked for community education.
"We've been doing a lot more outreach
into the schools this year, trying to work
with the children to teach them responsible

dog and cat ownership," said Harris. "It ends
up making them better citizens."
Above all, the ACC is grateful for the
numerous volunteers who helped make the
event a success despite the postponement.
"We're very close to our fundraising
goal," said Harris. "The event worked out
really well thanks to all the volunteers.
Without them, the dogs and the dog owners,
it would have been a nothing show instead
of a great show."

mile; the intermediate course, from Maho to
Trunk, at two-and-a-quarter miles; and the
long course, from Maho to Hawksnest, at
three-and-a-half miles. Categories included
assisted, where mask, fins and snorkel were
allowed; and unassisted, where swimmers
relied on a pair of goggles and their own
horsepower to complete the race.
Once the competitors finished the swim
and had a chance to catch their breath, they
converged at Oppenheimer Beach, where
burgers and beer were enjoyed by all, and
awards were doled out to the day's top com-
petitors.
"The party was good fun," said Kessler.


"People hung out and had a good time, and
it was a nice, relaxing atmosphere."
This year's Beach to Beach Power Swim
went off without a hitch thanks in no small
part to the numerous volunteers who help
make it all possible.
"We really appreciate all the support we
got from the community, from the busi-
nesses here on St. John and St. Thomas to
the folks who donated goods and services or
helped out in one way or another," said Kes-
sler. "It really took the community to make
this event a success, so they really need rec-
ognition."
And swimmers, mark your calendars. The
ninth annual Beach to Beach Power Swim is
scheduled for Sunday, May 27, 2012.

Ward To Face

Third Trial for

Cockayne Murder
Continued from Page 3

"To date, the prosecution has
not disclosed this 'material' in-
formation or the fact that Frazer
was declared a 'hostile' witness
to Defendant Ward," Hollar
wrote. "Instead of divulging
this critical information to de-
fense counsel, the People disin-
genuously contend that notice
is not warranted 'because the
cases are not relevant to each
other."'
"Even more shocking and
shameful, the prosecution has
the 'chutzpah' to categorically
assert that no government wit-
ness in the Jones/Powell case
made inconsistent statements
regarding their involvement in
the case," wrote Hollar. "Con-
sequently, the People's recent
transgressions confirm that ab-
sent stern reproach and deter-
rence, the prosecution has not
intention of or incentive to up-
hold its obligations and/or du-
ties under Brady."
Despite all of that, how-
ever, Hollar ruled to deny
Ward's motion for dismissal
with prejudice. The judge did,
however, impose sanctions on
the prosecution. Prosecutors
are barred from using two wit-
nesses, Glanville Frazer and
Jo'Nique Clendinen, in Ward's
third trial.
"Although the Court will re-
luctantly refrain from invoking
its inherent/supervisory pow-
ers to dismiss the above styled
matter with prejudice at this
time, it will impose a sanction
above and beyond the granting
of a new trial in order to deter
the People's apparent lawless-
ness," Hollar wrote. "If, how-
ever, the prosecution insists on
proving to the Court that it is
'bent on mischief' and commits
one more Brady or Giglio vio-
lation, the Court will, without
hesitation, immediately dismiss
this matter with prejudice."
A date for Ward's third trial
has not been set, but Hollar did
order a status hearing on the
case for Monday, June 20, at 9
a.m.

By Jaime Elliott St. John Tradewinds The incoming principal of Guy Benjamin School has nothing against Coral Bay, he just doesn’t want to work there. Late last month, Department sweeping changes to public school administration throughout the Virgin Islands. On St. John, Julius E. Sprauve School principal Mario Francis was transferred to Edith Williams Alternative Academy on St. Thomas, while current GBS principal Dionne Wells was transferred to Julius E. Sprauve School. Among other changes in the St. Thomas/St. John District, DOE ing of Evelyn Marcelli School on St. Thomas. The current principal of Marcelli, Whitman Browne — who lives in Estate Wintberg on St. Thomas — was assigned to take over at GBS in Coral Bay. In an interview with St. John Tradewinds last week, Browne said he has nothing against St. John or Coral Bay or GBS, but believed that his transfer was politically motivated. “I am not positive about this transfer at all,” said Browne. “I don’t mind coming to work on St. John, but I don’t think it’s fair for me, who lives in Wintberg, St. Thomas, to come to Coral Bay for work each day. It’s not attractive to me at all.” to be transferred to the small Coral Bay elementary school as punishment, he explained. “The history of sending people from St. Thomas to Coral Bay is a strategy to victimize and harass them,” said Browne. “It’s political — I know it’s political. I didn’t support Governor deJongh and I will not support deJongh.” “This is well known on St. Thomas,” Browne said. Browne has been working in education since 1984 when he was a consultant for the Department of Education. Following that, he taught at Addelita Cancryn before taking over as assistant principal at Charlotte Amalie High School. Browne also worked for Governor Turnbull’s administration as a special assistant to the governor. After Turnbull’s administration, Browne taught at Gladys Abraham and then became principal of Evelyn Marcelli School in 2008. in both elementary and secondary education and has helped Marcelli meet its Annual Yearly Progress benchmarks since 2008, he added. Marcelli is set to close at the end of this 2011 school year and Browne is still not exactly sure why, he explained. “The reasons change every day,” he said. “Nothing is wrong with the school. The school is more successful and better prepared for the future of education than other schools they are leaving open.” “The teachers are very upset,” Browne said. “The students are also sad. They have their chins in their hands each morning.” Despite the confusion, Marcelli is slated to close at the end of the commented about future uses of the building.

By Jaime Elliott St. John Tradewinds Jahlil Ward is heading back to V.I. Superior Court to face murder, assault and weapons charges for the third time. In an order dated May 26, 2011, V.I. Superior Court Judge Brenda Hollar “reluctantly” denied Ward’s motion to dismiss. In doing so, the judge did not rule out the possibility of a future dismissal. Ward is charged with murder ing 21-year-old Jamie Cockayne on June 19, 2007, in downtown Cruz Bay. Cockayne — a Pennsylvania resident who was on St. John for a few months awaiting work in the British Virgin Islands — was stabbed eight times, including in the femoral artery, outside the Fashion Palace just after midnight on June 19, 2007. The stabbing occurred about a half hour after Cockayne got into an altercation in a Cruz Bay bar with Ward, and Anselmo Boston and Kamal Thomas. Boston and Thomas were ar rested in August 2007 and held on murder, assault and weapons charges. Ward was arrested on trial — which was joined with the two co-defendants — in October 2008. murder, third degree assault and weapons charges. Boston and Thomas were both acquitted of murder, but found guilty of thirddegree assault and weapons charges. All of those convictions, however, were eventually thrown out by Hollar. Ward’s conviction was set aside in July 2009 when his attorney learned of a piece of evidence which the prosecution had not shared. Thomas and Boston’s convictions were thrown out in September 2009 after Hollar learned that the Cockayne family had paid cash rewards to several witnesses Ward’s second trial was separat ed from that of Boston and Thomas. Boston and Thomas faced their second jury in March 2010, and were convicted of third-degree assault, weapons and simple assault charges. Hollar sentenced the men to 48 months in jail with 18 months suspended for the third-degree assault charge and a consecutive 10 year term, with two years suspended, for the weapons charge. Both men the charges. Ward faced his second jury in December 2009. That jury found Ward guilty of second-degree murder, third-degree assault and weapons charges. That conviction was tossed out in July 2010 and Ward has been awaiting Hollar’s decision on his motion to dismiss since then. Ward has been awaiting this news from Edwin Penn’s Estate Adrian residence since Hollar granted him a bail reduction in February 2011. Hollar allowed Ward to post 10 percent of his $100,000 bail to secure his release. Hollar’s order means Ward will return to V.I. Superior Court to face the second-degree murder, assault and weapons charges for the third time. According to Hollar’s opinion, however, the judge seems to have just barely denied Ward’s motion to dismiss. In Hollar’s Memorandum Opinperior Court judge used strong language outlining numerous instances of prosecutorial misconduct, warning that any more violations would lead her to “im mediately dismiss this matter with prejudice.” Hollar cited numerous “Brady” and “Giglio” evidence and viola tions in her opinion, painting a picture of the V.I. Attorney Genevidence to the defense. In Brady vs. Maryland, “the Supreme Court held that ‘the suppression by the prosecution of evidence favorable to an accused upon request violates due process where the evidence is material either to guilt or to punishment irrespective of the good or bad faith of the prosecution,’” according to Hollar’s opinion. In her opinion, Hollar cited nine instances of the prosecution making Brady violations dating ther withholding evidence or not fully disclosing evidence which would have been favorable to the defense. Giglio vs. United States deals with a case in which the Supreme Court ruled that prosecutors must disclose evidence relating to the reliability of a witness. Hollar cited two instances of the prosecution making Giglio violations in her Memorandum Opinion. “Since 2008, the prosecution in this case has either suppressed or failed to timely disclose Brady/ Giglio evidence,” Hollar wrote in the opinion. “Undaunted by the granting of two new trials, this unabated conduct has persisted.” A large portion of Hollar’s opinion is dedicated to prosecution witness Glanville Frazer, who also “People vs. Jahwada Jones” and “People vs. Lawrence Powell .” Frazer, who was a main prosecution witness in both of Ward’s trials, was declared a hostile witness after recanting his statements court. Powell and Jahwada Jones as the assailants in another brutal Cruz Bay incident. “Prior to the Court’s inquiry, the People had not acknowledged, revealed or disclosed to the defense that Glanville Frazer was a common witness in the two cases; both of which involved intoxicated, non-resident, Caucasian victims on the island of St. John that were brutally assaulted by allegedly multiple Black assailants,” Hollar wrote in her May 26 opinion. “Both victims were also apparent ly seeking to purchase drugs from ‘locals’ on St. John.” In court Frazer recanted his ear lier statements about Lawrence Powell and Jahwada Jones, saying that Ariel Powell, who was alive when Cockayne was killed but has since died, had committed the crime. Hollar included a transcript from the January 2011 Jones/Powell trial in her opinion detailing Frazer’s change of tune. “This testimony of Glanville Frazer, if believed, is critical in Defendant Ward’s new trial since Ariel Powell was alive at the time James Cockayne was murdered and Frazer admits that Ariel Powell threatened and forced him to ‘misidentify’ innocent persons in culpability,” Hollar wrote in her opinion. Assistant Attorney Generals Claude Walker and Courtney Reese, the prosecutors for the case, still have not dealt with these violations, Hollar wrote.“Although the Court will reluctantly refrain from invoking its inherent/supervisory powers to dismiss the above styled matter with prejudice at this time, it will impose a sanction above and beyond the granting of a new trial in order to deter the People’s apparent lawlessness. If, however, the prosecution insists on proving to the Court that it is ‘bent on mischief’ and commits one more Brady or Giglio violation, the Court will, without hesitation, immediately dismiss this matter with prejudice.” 2011 RAIN DATAMO NTH O F M A Y AVERAGETOTAL YTDAVERAGE YTD Thursday, June 9th INDEX Continued on Back Page St. John Tradewinds, June 6-12, 2011 3 Ward To Face Third Trial for Cockayne MurderJudge Brenda Hollar "reluctantly" denies defenses motion to dismiss

ACC board members and volunteers scrambled to reschedule the event after heavy rains drenched the territory the night before Wagapalooza’s originally scheduled date of Saturday, May 21. Wagapalooza was rescheduled for Saturday, May 28, and the event was moved to the V.I. National Park “Even with having to reschedule and moving to a venue we’d never used before, we’ve raised close to $24,000,” said ACC board of directors president B.J. Harris. “We have to thank everybody because rescheduling and moving body was just tremendously supportive along the way.” The change of venue worked out so well, in fact, that the ACC is taking comments from the community on whether Wagapalooza should take place at the VINP ball The dogs put on their best per formances, with Western-themed costumes wowing the crowd and one dog leap frogging entirely over his owner for the Best Jumper category.

By Andrea Milam St. John Tradewinds Sixteen-year-old Bryson Mays of St. Croix won last year’s Friends of the V.I. National Park Beach to Beach Power Swim, but that wasn’t good enough for him. Mays returned to this year’s swim on Sunday morning, May 29, where he not only won again, but he also broke the course record, previously set by Kieran Locke, also of St. Croix. Mays swam the long course, from Maho Bay to Hawksnest beach, in just 1:10:34, more than a minute faster than the previous record of 1:11:39. “To think about him swimming from Maho to Hawksnest that quickly is pretty awesome,” said Friends president Joe Kessler. In addition to seeing the course record broken, the swim also attracted 204 registered swimmers, and the event raised $25,000 for the V.I. National Park’s Learn to Swim program. This year’s Race for a Reason fundraising chal lenge, which encouraged swimmers to raise additional funds, brought in even more money. Competitors came from as far away as Hawaii, Spain and Trinidad, and several swimmers traveled from the states as well. One notable competitor was Jamie Patrick, an ultraswimmer who recently swam across Lake Tahoe and back, and plans to swim 240 miles nonstop in the Sacramento River this August. Patrick hosted an open water swim clinic the day before the Power Swim and donated the clin ic’s proceeds to the Friends. “It was very cool having him there,” said Kessler. “He brought some stuff from his sponsors that we gave to the winners, including the best prize of all, a waterproof MP3 player.” Everyone from the incredibly experienced Patrick down to the youngest swimmers got out of the water safely thanks to numerous volunteers manning 25 kayaks, cue boat and National Park Ser vice patrol boats, which kept an eye on competitors throughout the course. Calm seas and light following winds ensured prime conditions for this year’s swimmers, who competed in the short course, from Maho to Cinnamon at one St. John Tradewinds, June 6-12, 2011 5 New Course Record Set and Almost $25K Raised 8th Annual Power Swim Continued on Page 21

By Jaime Elliott St. John Tradewinds A monthly farmers market is coming to St. John starting in June. Karen Samuel started organizing the event after a huge crowd turned out for Department of Agriculture winter. “Everyone who came out to the Department of Agriculture’s farmers market said we should do this more often on St. John,” said Samuel. That’s all it took for Samuel to get organizing. Starting Sunday, June 12, farmers from the St. Thomas cooperative We Grow Food along with individual farmers, will set up their produce at the lower parking lot of the Lumberyard, near the V.I. Water And Power Stop by the market between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on June 12 and then on the second Sunday of each month to stock up on organic, locally grown produce and value added items like baked goods, jams and jellies. Samuel is starting the monthly market with St. Thomas farmers, but is also hoping to interest St. John farmers to come out and even set up another market day, she explained. “If there is more interest and St. John farmers want to come out, we could host a market on a different Sunday,” said Samuel.

St. John Tradewinds, June 6-12, 2011 7 By Jaime Elliott St. John Tradewinds After helming the St. John School of the Arts as execu tive director since 2006, Jan Kinder stepped down from the position on June 1. Kinder, who is relocating to the Fort Lauderdale/Miami area, has accepted to be on the SJSA board of directors while the school’s assistant director Kim Wild — who has been with SJSA more than a decade herself — has taken over as acting director. “The perfect choice to be at the helm as acting director is Kim Wild,” said Kinder. “I’m elated she accepted the posiand vision for the future of SJSA.” “Kim has been an invaluable member of the school over the past 13 years,” Kinder said. “As a cherished colleague and friend, I thank her. I could not have done my part without her.” Kinder, however, wore many hats in her duties at SJSA, including the school’s music education director and Orff instructor. She has tapped several impressive residents to help “Before stepping down as executive director on June 1, after 27 years being with the school administratively and as a faculty member, I’ve delegated my responsibilities to a few people I respect and admire,” said Kinder. Bringing years of experience, Eddie Bruce is the art school’s new music education director, Kinder explained. “His remarkable music experience and knowledge base will complement Kim’s excellence in dance education,” she said. “As a faculty member of both our in-school and afterschool programs, he will be able to assist with the further development of the in-school curriculum, and the music and instrumental section of SJSA.” “I am grateful Eddie accepted this position,” Kinder said. “We have shared similar ideas and visions over the years. Exciting additional programs for our youth will be starting in the fall.” To head the school’s Orff Schulwerk Music for Children program, which has been a popular early childhood music program at the school since 1984, Kinder asked someone she has been trying to get in the SJSA fold for years, she explained. “We have asked Shikima Jones to become a member of the SJSA family for many years,” Kinder said. “I am thrilled she has agreed to join us. I am entrusting her with the Orff Schulwerk program. SJSA will be sending her to Boston of the Orff Schulwerk.” “I think she will be a natural at teaching the Orff music approach,” said Kinder. “Her love for music is obvious and working with children her gift. I believe Shikima will add an important part to our long-standing Orff program with her use of cultural songs and stories.” Kinder also hoped that Jones would launch glee clubs and performing choirs in the schools, she added. In addition to the in-school Orff program, Jones will be coordinating additional after-school classes with SJSA, Kinder explained. “SJSA recently partnered with the Department of Housing Parks and Recreation with DHPR Commissioner St. Claire Williams,” she said. “Our two organizations have agreed to work together by combining efforts to offer afterschool and weekend arts education opportunities and classes to the children participating in the DHPR program.” “As project coordinator for DHPR, Shikima will be a key component and one of the teachers with classes being conducted at both facilities,” Kinder said. Rounding out the SJSA family will be faculty member Thia Muilenburg, who will be assisting Wild as the school’s music and expressive therapy coordinator. “I have asked music therapy colleague and SJSA faculty member, Thia Muilenburg, to help Kim as music and expressive therapy coordinator,” said Kinder. “It is my wish to once again provide sessions for children with special needs.” Although Kinder is starting a new chapter, with so many talented instructors taking over at SJSA, the long-running arts school remains in great hands. The school is hosting a “Spirits of the Tainos” summer camp from June 20 through July 1. For more information on SJSA or the summer camp call Wild at the school at 779-4322.

Find Us @ The Lumberyard Monday Friday 11 7 / 244-8888 “Where things keep coming and going” By Jaime Elliott St. John Tradewinds Have a big renovation project planned at the house, but don’t have that mixer needed for the job? Are the weeds in the yard growing out of control, but the weed whacker is broken? Look no further than the bright yellow and blue building on Centerline Road next to the old Mothose needs. Allied Rental Center has been renting and selling all sorts of tools and equipment needed for construction, renovation, gardening and landscaping on St. John for years. Since moving out of Cruz Bay to the new Centerline Road location, however, the store has expanded its merchandise and, with a new manager, customer ser vice has improved as well. “We are a rental and equipment sales company,” said Larry Sanchez, Allied store manger. “We rent a lot of different equipment from air compressors and pressure washers to concrete mixers. We also have a lot of gardening equipment like chain saws and weed whackers.” “We also carry generators and a lot more,” Sanchez said. “We pretty much have everything to do with construction, gardening and landscaping.” Allied also has merchandise for sale and Sanchez is careful to stock up on all the replacement parts for the equipment the store carries, he added. “What we do is a lot of the products we have for rent we also have for sale,” said Sanchez. “We also carry all the replacement parts someone would need. For chain saws, we sell the saws and we also have the chains, the spark plugs and all of the different parts and pieces that would be needed down the road.” Looking just to rent equipment? Allied offers daily, weekly or monthly rates. “We also have special rates depending on how long the rental is for,” said Sanchez. The St. John Allied store is an outpost of the main Allied store located in Fort Milner, St. Thomas and owned by Sanchez’s uncle Edmundo Zayas. Having the main store in St. Thomas also allows Sanchez to bring specially requested pieces of equipment to St. John to rent or sale, he explained. “We can bring things over from St. Thomas and that is just what I’m planning,” said Sanchez. “I’m going to bring a lot of new machines for sale and rental and we’re looking to renovate the whole store.” Sanchez is also dedicated to keeping the store open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on a consistent basis, something which had been a problem for Allied in the past, he explained. “The hours used to be inconsistent,” said Sanchez. “But our regular hours will now be from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday and we’ll be here. We also have better customer service and we’re going to be bringing new merchandise in soon too.” Stop by Allied on Centerline Road and check out the equipment and tools for sale or rent.

St. John Tradewinds, June 6-12, 2011 9 St. John Tradewinds Julius E. Sprauve School students in the fourth through sixth grades took part in the author-in-residence program this school year with award winning author Cristina Kessler, with help from a $1,000 donation by the Rotary Club of St. John. St. John Tradewinds is privileged to be able print the work created by several students for the next few weeks. This story was written by JESS fourth grader Jean Nestor. Omega's Adventure by Jean Nester My name is Omega. I’m a cheetah. I live in Africa. I have orange skin with black spots. I’m proud because cheetahs are the fastest animals on land. I’m lonely because African hunters separated me from my family. They chased me away because they thought I was in the wrong animal kingdom. I asked Earl the Elephant, “Can you help me with my mission?” Earl said, “What mission?” Earl the Elephant said, “Oh yes I can, but I need to ask my mommy.” I waited for 13 seconds, and then I went to Onix the Rhino’s house. I knocked on his door. Onix’s mother opened the door and said with a deep voice, “Hello Omega.” I asked her, “Can Onix come on an adventure?” Onix’s mother said, “Yes he may.” Then Onix squeezed through the door past his mother and said, “Bye Mommy.” So Earl the Elephant joined Onix the Rhino and I, and we started the search. We went to the Forest of Mystical Creatures, and walked down the path. We came to a sign that said BEWARE OF THE ANNOYING PARROTS! Earl said, “That is not true. There are no annoying par rots.” And so we went down the path and saw a bunch of par rots talking. They were making so much noise that Earl screamed, “Now I believe that sign!” We continued walking on the path. We saw sunlight right in front of us and I said, “Hurray, we’re out of the forest.” Onix heard a herd of zebra running past them. They knocked him down. I saw creatures that looked just like me so I ran towards them. Earl the Elephant said, “Wait up!” When I got there I saw my family in a wooden cage. Onix ran right into it and broke the cage. My family was free. I had tears of joy in my eyes. We walked home safely together. We took the long way instead of walking through the Forest of Mystical Creatures. When we got home there was a beautiful sunset. I told Earl the Elephant and Onix the Rhino, “Thank you very My family and I lived happily ever after.

Parking is free. You already paid for it through a bond issue. Remember the $87 million bond issue from the Summer of 2009? We appropriated $1 million of that money to make this “temporary” parking lot. Enjoy it! Perhaps the Cruz Bay business persons will set up an in-town shuttle that will swing by the new lot. There is not going to be a ribbon-cutting ceremony for a while. Commissioner Smalls is aware that there are serious drainage problems in the area. His Public Works Department may have to tear up part of the open the parking and then have to close it. I persuaded him to let people use it now, because we need the parking urgently. Let us not criticize Commissioner Smalls if and when he closes the lot to do drainage repairs. It is better to enjoy the parking for six months and then close it for a month, than to wait seven months without any parking. Please drive carefully on the gravel. It’s very different than driving on pavement or even dirt. A twowheel drive car with small wheels can even get stuck in the gravel. Drive slowly and make wide turns. Yet more parking is possible, with your active par ticipation. In 2011 we have $4-plus million set aside for the multi-level car park that we have been planning for years. This is the time to design it and begin it. Other senators want to reprogram these funds to other uses. As a legislator, my job is to identify needs and fund them. I have done my part. Now the executive branch needs to hear your desire that the project begin. Call the Governor and call the Administrator. And call Catherine Stephen at 693-8061 for more informa tion. Property T ax Relief I introduced a bill last Fall to collect property tax at the 1998 level. That brought relief to St. John, and allowed the government to begin collecting property taxes after four years of confusion. More must be done, so I have introduced additional legislation. My bill 29-0071 was heard in the Government Operations Committee chaired by Sen. Hansen. Oddly, it was held on St. Croix. I asked that the next hearing be held on St. John, to which the chairperson agreed. As amended, 29-0071 calls for the Bearing Point revaluations to be thrown out, and new revaluations done for St. John using local appraisers. Further, it calls for property bills to be sent out every 10 months until we are caught up. We really should have passed this measure when I fect now. You may have noticed that we have already received two property tax bills this year and the Governor is planning to send out a third. It is true that the Government is strapped for cash, but I favor a more gradual approach to catching up. I also have a bombshell amendment, 29-266T. It simply provides that real property will only be assessed at the time of purchase. This means that no one will be forced to pay higher taxes because of a skyrocketing real estate market. This will also preserve St. John culture because land-rich but cash-poor families will no longer have to sell off land they have owned for decades or centuries to pay run-away land taxes.

St. John Tradewinds On Saturday, May 28, the V.I. with happy children having fun and adults dedicated to ensur ing that children have safe, positive activities during the summer months. The event was the 2nd Annual St. John Summer Youth Fair, organized by the St. John Community Integration Team and V.I. Police Department. The fair brought youth service providers, especially those who host summer camps and have youth employment services, to the public. It was designed as a “one stop shopping for families” said Melody Rames, VIPD Public Relations Director and CIT liaison. Families came to the fair with their children in tow to choose a terests. More than a dozen camps theatre, music, dance archeology science, marine biology, pottery, glass blowing and much more. There were camps for those as young as three to teenagers. For the older teens, the Department of Labor was present with their Youth Net program. This program is valuable for young people just entering the workforce. St. John teens can connect with a Youth Net advisor on Mondays and Fridays at the Battery. The program is offered territorywide. Kalun Eugene came to the fair with the intention of getting infor “I’ll take anything for now,” said the 14-year old who came to the fair with his mother. Shermaine Petersen-Neilsen, the VIPD’s recruiter, handed out information to the youth and cautioned them that staying on the right path while they are young attracts good job opportunities for the future. “Develop good character, good morals and get involved in positive activities because that’s what employers are looking for, that is she said. Linda Bechstien is the CIT chairperson and was pleased at the turnout. “We had a good turnout, the providers came and the children came,” said Bechstien. “This is 12 St. John Tradewinds, June 6-12, 2011 a good opportunity for St. John children to interact with the police and build good relationships. Next year we want to place more emphasis on the parents attending, because some children wanted to sign up for a summer activity but needed a parent’s signature.” The CIT is a volunteer program which allows civilians to meet monthly with police and devise methods of improving community local police problems. The highlight of the day was a demonstration by the VIPD K-9 adults were astounded at the discipline the dogs displayed when told to heel, stay, or obey other commands. The dogs showed their skill in attacking a suspect and even leaping high into the air to tackle a bad guy and bring him down. Later, the police cadets and local children played a kickball game. After three innings, and a lot of good natured jeering, the children won, for the second year in a row, much to the light hearted chagrin of the cadets. As the Second Annual Summer Youth Fair came to a close the children could be heard exclaiming their fun. “We had a great time,” they said. “We can’t wait until next year!” Second Annual VIPD Youth Summer Fair Is Big Success

Youth Enrich partnership and support of Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association (MLBPAA) and its Legends for Youth program in executing a free baseball clinic on St. John. The free four day clinic, scheduled to take place at the Cruz Bay day, June 15, to Saturday, June 18, will be an instructional exercise for kids ages 4 through 12 on hitrunning. “The MLBPAA is excited to partner with Glenn Philbert and the Love City Live! Youth Enrichment Program to bring the Legends for Youth clinic program to the boys and girls of St. John,” said Dan Foster, MLBPAA Chief Executive Alumni Association’s mission, and we are always eager to promote the game in areas where there is great potential.” There will also be a free onehour instructional coaches clinic for parents and coaches covering the techniques of teaching baseball fundamentals. As an inaugural event, Philbert Live! Youth Baseball Clinic will set the stage to rebuild the culture of baseball/softball on St. John. “I grew up in an era where baseball and softball was strong on St. John,” said Philbert. “If you were St. Johnian, you played ball. The learned discipline, structure, hard work and many other life skills.” Philbert developed his love for baseball at a young age watching his older brother Eric play, then becoming a ball player himself. He then went on to earn high school and college baseball scholarships and work in the baseball industry for several years. learned and opportunities gained through the sport, Philbert seeks to rekindle the interest in baseball on St. John and views MLBPAA as the perfect partner to assist in his mission. “One of the Legends for Youth clinic program’s goals is to devel op a lifelong interest in the game,” said Lance James, MLBPAA Vice President of Development. “If we can create excitement for the game in the young players and their par ents who attend, then we can create a strong foundation to return and build upon the success of this inaugural clinic.” MLBPAA was founded in 1982 with the mission of promoting baseball, raising money for charity, and protecting the dignity of the game through its Alumni players.

What's the Difference?As the parent of two Guy Benjamin Elementary School students, I am voicing my disappointment with and objection to the V.I.

It is unconscionable to dismantle the very core of very moment when schools nationwide are struggling to create cohesion and quality in their educational programs. Miss Wells has not only created that cohesion and quality of education, but under her leadership, guidance and direction, our school has become a “shining star” of the US Virgin Islands! It was not that long ago when our school was in tremendous turmoil, partly due to decisions made by the VIDOE. All that changed when Miss Wells came to be our Principal.

This sentiment does not resonate with the VIDOE’s decision. Why is that? Because of the ironies: Miss Wells lives near our school; she loves our school and does not want to leave; the students, parents, faculty and staff, and the entire community love her and do not want her to leave (as evidenced by the hundreds of signatures on our petition); she’s doing an absolutely fantastic job; replacing a Principal with a Principal does not save the VIDOE money; and her replace ment does not want to come here from St. Thomas! a no-brainer!

St. John Tradewinds, June 6-12, 2011 15 Public or Private?St. John Tradewinds Delegate to Congress Donna Christensen told the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee that Interior Assistant Secretary Wilma Lewis “would bring an extensive, varied and broad wealth of experience from both the public and private sector to the Distion hearings on Tuesday, May 24. Lewis, a native of St. Thomas, was nominated by President Barack Obama to serve on the federal bench. “Assistant Secretary Lewis has served the District of Colombia and our Nation in some of the most demanding positions in local and federal government,” Christensen said. The congresswoman outlined Lewis’s service as Asst. Secretary for Lands and Minerals Management “at one of the most challenging times for that agency.” Lewis also served as U.S. Attorney for the District of Colombia and in the private sector as a Partner at Crowell and Moring, as Managing Associate General Counsel at Freddie Mac and as an Associate at Steptoe and Johnson. “Wilma Lewis has distinguished herself at every turn, in college, in law school and in the coveted legal positions she has held and executed with honor, distinction and excellence,” Christensen said. Lewis was valedictorian of her All Saints Cathe dral High School in 1974, graduated with honors from Swarthmore in political science in 1978 and from Harvard Law School in 1981. She was featured in the 2003 Harvard Law Bulletin as among the 50 female graduates who used their legal educa tion to “take them to extraordinary places.” The Virgin Islands Bar unanimously voted her as this position. Under questioning from Senator Amy Klobuchar who chaired the hearing, Lewis spoke of her preperament was formed by the opportunity to serve in a number of roles to include advocate, impartial decision maker, U.S. Attorney, counselor and teacher. “I have a strong commitment to public service,” opposing perspectives and I will set the tone for a court room where all litigants will have their day in court.” Lewis, was accompanied by several relatives and friends including her mother, Juta Lewis, who she credited for her success and her brother, Warren Lewis and his family. standing individual to give her the opportunity to do what has always been her dream,” said Christensen, “to use all of the experience and skills she has accu mulated over the years to serve her beloved home.” Lewis’s nomination has to be voted on by the Committee and the full Senate.

Or, more importantly, what is the role of St. John in that vision? If we as a people understood our purpose, then we could apply our energies towards a common goal. It’s not easy leading a business or government agency. And it’s probably a lot tougher lead ing both, but unless St. Johnians, private and public, join hands, loses. And that loss means no income, no home and more burdens on a stressed out welfare system. St. Johnians, we cannot continue like this. There’s no sense in having more technology, more tourists and more taxes if we can’t see where we’re going. That is a dead end street. The only way to combat our downward slide is to raise our standards higher. Adults have to spend what they make, do what they say and be fair in handing out justice. May God help us.

contends that his transfer is unfair and was planned to push him into retirement. “I have nothing against Guy Benjamin School, but I don’t think this is a fair assignment,” he said. “These things are planned. They sit and plan their moves and they look they can get away with these moves.” “This is punishment,” said Browne. “I can only see vindictiveness and punishment. When principals are sent from St. Thomas to Guy Benjamin School it is punishment.” The principal cited Jean Richards as an example of an administrator who was transferred to GBS and soon retired. “Jean was transferred to GBS and she retired,” Browne said. “I am getting close to retirement and that has been the history with the DOE. Whenever they want to give someone a hard time, they send them to Guy Benjamin School.” While Browne is not happy about his transfer, he wanted to be sure that residents understood he has nothing against GBS or Coral Bay. “I want the people of St. John to under stand that I have absolutely nothing against them or against the school,” said Browne. “I want the school to understand that I have nothing against GBS or the teachers or staff there. I want them to understand that I wouldn’t come over angry at them.” “I would come with what I bring as a professional educator to make a difference which is what I’ve done at every school I’ve worked,” he said. Browne is not against working on St. John; he’s more than happy to take over for Francis at JESS, he explained. “I have nothing against working at a school on St. John, but why does it have to be in Coral Bay” he said. “I would prefer coming to JESS in Cruz Bay because when you get off the boat you are right there. I am certain I could go to JESS and be a successful principal.” While Browne can not change his assignment, he is still pondering his next move and urged residents who want to keep Dionne Wells at GBS to contact the DOE Commissioner and the governor. “I can’t change my assignment, but I’m still thinking about what I’m going to do,” he said. “I think the residents should convince the governor and DOE to leave Ms. Wells at GBS. Again, I have nothing against the school, but this is unfair to me.”18 St. John Tradewinds, June 6-12, 2011 AccommodationsCaribbean Villas & Resorts tel. 1-800-338-0987 or locally 340-776-6152 Island Getaways 888-693-7676, islandgetaway sinc.com kathy@islandgetawaysinc.com Suite St. John Villas/Condos tel. 1-800-348-8444 or locally at 340-779-4486 VIVA Vacations tel. 779-4250 P.O.

the Best Look-alike category. “This dog was slobbering like Pavlov’s dog,” said Harris. “So the owner went out in front of the crowd with his slobbering dog, took a slug of beer, and slobbered it out while shaking his head. The owners were just as much fun as the animals were.” Winners in the eight separate categories, including Best Cow Hound Costume — where dogs donned cow costumes in honor of this year’s Western theme — were awarded with ribbons and plenty of applause. “Everybody who came was a winner, and all the dogs were perfectly behaved,” said Harris. The majority of this year’s donations came from T-shirt sponsors, and t-shirt sales raked in plenty of money as well. In fact, the ACC plans to reorder more T-shirts due to demand, so those who would like to pur chase one should contact the shelter at 7741625. The money raised at this year’s Wagapalooza will go toward general operations of the ACC’s no-kill animal shelter, with the exception of $2,000 donated by the St. John Board of Realtors, which has been ear marked for community education. “We’ve been doing a lot more outreach into the schools this year, trying to work with the children to teach them responsible dog and cat ownership,” said Harris. “It ends up making them better citizens.” Above all, the ACC is grateful for the numerous volunteers who helped make the event a success despite the postponement. “We’re very close to our fundraising goal,” said Harris. “The event worked out really well thanks to all the volunteers. Without them, the dogs and the dog owners, it would have been a nothing show instead of a great show.” mile; the intermediate course, from Maho to Trunk, at two-and-a-quarter miles; and the long course, from Maho to Hawksnest, at three-and-a-half miles.

24 St. John Tradewinds, June 6-12, 2011 Ward To Face Third Trial for Cockayne MurderContinued from Page 3 “To date, the prosecution has not disclosed this ‘material’ information or the fact that Frazer was declared a ‘hostile’ witness to Defendant Ward,” Hollar wrote. “Instead of divulging this critical information to defense counsel, the People disingenuously contend that notice is not warranted ‘because the cases are not relevant to each other.’” “Even more shocking and shameful, the prosecution has the ‘chutzpah’ to categorically assert that no government witness in the Jones/Powell case made inconsistent statements regarding their involvement in the case,” wrote Hollar. “Consequently, the People’s recent sent stern reproach and deter rence, the prosecution has not intention of or incentive to uphold its obligations and/or duties under Brady.” Despite all of that, however, Hollar ruled to deny Ward’s motion for dismissal with prejudice. The judge did, however, impose sanctions on the prosecution. Prosecutors are barred from using two witnesses, Glanville Frazer and Jo’Nique Clendinen, in Ward’s third trial. “Although the Court will reluctantly refrain from invoking its inherent/supervisory powers to dismiss the above styled matter with prejudice at this time, it will impose a sanction above and beyond the granting of a new trial in order to deter the People’s apparent lawlessness,” Hollar wrote. “If, however, the prosecution insists on proving to the Court that it is ‘bent on mischief’ and commits one more Brady or Giglio violation, the Court will, without hesitation, immediately dismiss this matter with prejudice.” A date for Ward’s third trial has not been set, but Hollar did order a status hearing on the case for Monday, June 20, at 9 a.m.
