November through
the end of July. Our
most exciting news is

Weekly is also
available on line at
Saint-Barth Online
the wonderful web
site that our friends

Barth Weekly, so that

here was standing
room only at the
Anglican Church in
Gustavia on Sunday morn-
ing, February 5, as the first
confirmations to take place
in the church in quite a long
time were held. The service
was led by a stellar group of
religious leaders, including
the presiding bishop, the
Right Reverend Errol
Brooks, bishop of the north
eastern Caribbean and Aru-
ba, who was assisted by the
Right Reverend Theodore
Eastman, retired Bishop of
Maryland, and Reverend
Charles Vere Nicoll, the resi-
dent priest of St.
Bartholomew's Anglican
Church. Father Sylvere
Numa, the Parish Priest of
the Roman Catholic Church
in Saint Barth was also in
attendance, and La Chorale
de Bons Choeurs, under the
direction of Charles Darden,
provided the musical portion
of the service, including
some of their popular gospel
songs (Philippe Laugrand,
visiting from Guadeloupe,
sang one of his 'famous'
Gregorian chants, and served
as the thurifer (incense bear-
er) for the service).
The day was a very special
occasion for Evans Romney
and Dylan Wayne, the two
boys who were confirmed.

They were prepared for their
confirmation by Trinette
Wellesley-Wesley, and the
Bishop reminded them that
this is but another step in
their spiritual lives, rather
than a graduation ceremony.
Overall, the service illustrat-
ed the cultural diversity of
the island and the strong
sense of community sur-

Bishop Brooks covers 12
islands in the Caribbean
Anglican diocese, from Aru-
ba to Dominica. "Some of
the islands have many
parishes," he said, noting
that he "lives out of a bag
much of the time." His wife,

who had not visited Saint
Barth since the 1980s, when
Bishop Brooks was based in
Saint Martin, accompanied
him. "From 1978-1990, I
was responsible for Saint
Martin and Saint Barth," he
said. With his powerful
voice and powerful convic-
tions, Bishop Brooks was
greatly appreciated by the
congregation, which
includes islanders as well as
many American guests. "My
wife and I are delighted to be
with you on this wonderful
occasion of confirmation,"
Brooks said.
Vere Nicoll noted that the
church has a new non-profit
foundation in the United
States: Friends of St.
Bartholomew's Anglican
Church, and there is current-
ly an endowment challenge
fund underway. Some of the
trustees have stated that they
will match donations, dollar
for dollar, to the level of
$100,000. Donations are tax
deductible in the US. For

Nicoll or Brook Lacour.

The Contre Amiral Noel To Be In Saint Barth

Before The End of The Month

The Contre Amiral
Noel should arrive
in Saint Barth before
the end of February. The
SNSM station (rescue at
sea) in Saint-Martin,
which used this rescue
boat until now, has
received its new boat, bap-
tized The Notre Dame de
la Garoupe. Formerly in
service at the station in
Antibes (France), the
motorboat arrived last
Monday morning in the
Port of Galisbay in Saint-
Martin. As for the Contre
Amiral Noel, a boat that is
9 meters long and 3.42
meters large, it will be put
into dry dock in the next
few days for a general

revision before it comes to
Saint Barth, where it will
be the first rescue boat at
the new SNSM station on
the island. Francois Cel-

SNSM for the overseas
departments, has indicated

to Ing6nu Magras, presi-
dent of the association for
the new local station, that
the SNSM plans to pro-
vide Saint Barth with a
new boat that better corre-

spends to tropical condi-
tions that the Contre Ami-
ral Noel, which, like all
boats of its type, have
major maintenance prob-
lems with its hydro-jets.
The new boat, currently
under construction at the
naval shipyard of Sibiril
Carantec in Bretagne,
measures 10.5 meters
long, and has two 330 HP
motors which enable it to
reach cruising speeds of
25 knots. Co-financed by
the SNSM and the munici-
pality, the new boat should
be delivered to Saint Barth
by the end of the year.

Why have a rescue boat?
A To respond 24/7 to calls from the Crossag (Antilles-
Guyane Center for Rescue Operations at Sea) for all
incidents that require rescue services at sea.
A To collaborate with the fire station in the case of a
fire or accident on a boat.
A To help boats in difficulty in the harbor, in case of
motor problems.
A To ensure safety during nautical events.
A To help with medical evacuations in the event that
air service is not possible.

Alain Le Chateli(

A weekly column about island residents and
guests from foreign shores
By Ellen Lampert-Greaux

Palette of overripe
colors, mounds of
seductive fruit,
curious cats, unmade beds,
and imaginary insects: the
art of Alain Le Chatelier
never fails to surprise and
please the eye. The French
painter returns to Saint
Barth for his eleventh annu-
al exhibit at Les Artisans in
Gustavia, where collectors
anxiously await the unveil-
ing of his latest oeuvres.
Inspired by his environment
as well as his own imagina-
tion, Le Chatelier studied to
be a mural and fresco
painter in Italy; a talent seen
in his larger, more expan-
sive paintings, such as land-
scapes painted near his
country house 100 kilome-

country is essential for my
work," he says. His 18th-
century house, a former rec-
tory next door to a church,
is surrounded by a walled
garden where Le Chatelier
delights in planting seeds,
and watching things grow.
The artist also has a knack
for miniatures, and some of
his paintings are surprising
complex for their small
size. He harbors a wicked
sense of humor as well,
seen in this year's collection
of fruit paintings (and in a
charming little self portrait)
where mounds of whipped
cream turn into moustaches
and beards when the paint-
ings are turned upside
down, and in a clever use of
trompe l'oeil (of which Le
Chatelier is a master) the
mounds of fruits and veg-
etables suddenly have faces,
with carrots as noses or
berries as eyes. Other paint-
ings feature a solo piece of
fruit in a box, perhaps a gift,
or a bee buzzing around a
collection of desserts that
almost look real.

Le Chatelier describes his
palette as "slightly aggres-
sive," as seen in the bold
juxtaposition of I ,.i .
opposing colors, such as red
and green, or violet and yel-
low. "I like colors that look
at little synthetic," he says,
referring to an effect he can
create with acrylics rather
than traditional oils. "I like
to play with colors and
wake up the eyes," he notes,
adding that light is also
important: where it comes
from and how it caresses the
objects, as well as the shad-
ows it creates.
Among the 60 new painting
Le Chatelier will unveil this
year, he once again reveals
his playful nature, as well as
his exuberant talent. From a
snowy scene in winter to the
ripest of summer fruits,
there is a common thread in
the style and sensibility of
his work. "The paintings are
new, yet familiar," he says.
And the abundance of fruit
is an optical feast that is sure
to sate the appetite of even
his hungriest collectors.

European Heritage Days

Old-time remedies on display
O ver 500 people visited the play on the long table behind the
Municipal Museum in "gatherers"- a dozen people from
Gustavia on Sunday, Janu- Flamands, Vitet, or Grand Fond,
ary 30, for the 21st annual Euro- a asked by the director of the muse-
pean Heritage Days event, held for um, Eddy Galvani, to reveal their
the second consecutive year in secrets in the medicinal use of the
Saint Barth. After demonstrations plants. Other demonstrations
of palm weaving and the making I during the afternoon included
of cotton thread last year, this plasters, poultices, and even cup-
year's focus was on traditional ping jars. Even if the latter are
pharmacology. This included teas rarely used today, natural teas
made from local plants, including made from local plants are still
citronella, basil, and corossol-- a popular for treating minor ail-
total of thirty plants were on dis- 1 ments.
2005 report from the gendarmerie:

The level of delinquen-
cy on the public roads
in 2005 decreased by
15% over the year before,
and is even lower than 2003,
proving a cause and effect:
there are more police on the
"beat," and fewer problems
in the street, as confirmed
last Monday by Chief Meu-
riot, the commandant of the
gendarmerie for the North-
em Islands, during a general
inspection of services in
Saint Barth. On the other
hand, the number of thefts
(breaking and entering)
increased, from 24 in 2004
to 36 in 2005. Is this a true
increase or a result of the
fact that people are more
prone to lock the doors to
their homes? Hard to say,

but according to Chief Meu-
riot, even with this augmen-
tation, the situation is lvici
than the average elsewhere.
"There are no organized
gangs of thieves here, and in
most cases the break in is
worse than the theft iicI.',"
he adds. There was also a
slight increase in attacks on
people and other violence,
but mostly between married
couples, roommates or
More than a true increase,
but more the result of a
change in a French law that
makes hitting a spouse a
crime, subject to a court
hearing. Stable, the number
of drug cases, not going
over seven for users and
nine for affairs concerning

sale or traffic of drugs, the number of frauds, of
which concern only small which two-thirds were
quantities and primarily fraudulent use of credit
marijuana. Also stable was cards: 61 cases in 2005.
Helmets and Seatbelts: Buckle Up!

A top priority for the
police, after the fight
against delinquency, is that
of safety on the roads, as
2005 had the same number
of serious and minor acci-
dents as 2004. An overall
number that is much lower
than accident rate from
2000-2002, but marked by
the death of a young driver
on a scooter (the first death
on the roads since 2002).
With the exception of one,
in all of the accidents that
caused bodily injuries, either
the victim or the person

causing the accident was on
a two-wheeled vehicle. As a
result, the police have start-
ed a large campaign con-
cerning anyone on motorcy-
cles and scooters: this con-
cerns both the wearing of
helmets with their straps
attached and the use of vehi-
cles that have been cus-
tomized to go faster or make
more noise. The police
have also been cracking
down on dangerous driving,
and especially driving under
the influence of alcohol, and
the wearing of seatbelts.

"Eug6lie, une belle jambe,"

an autobiographical account

by Jeanne-Marie Gr6aux

S aint-Barthdlemy,
September 1988.
6:45am. A beautiful,
sunny day. Jeanne-Marie
Gr6aux, who is now 54
years old, a municipal
council member, and
director of a security com-
pany, set out that i 'iiini .
as she did every day, with
her older son, on a scooter
they shared to get to their
respective jobs. A morning
like all the iIlci, until,
along the way, a car cuts in
front of them at the bridge
near the Eden Rock and
crashes into them forceful-
ly. Yannick had only a few
scratches, but Jeanne-
Marie was severely

injured, including a double
open fracture of her leg.
Over the next two years,
she underwent 18 surgical
procedures. Separated
from her island and her
loved ones during that
period, it was her two
sons, and the h.,i 'uIIlI that
she wrote down in a half
dozen notebooks (some-
thing recommended by a
French professor she met
during her hospitalization),
that gave her the strength
to fight and try to save her
leg that was menaced with

Marie had never wanted to

form (400 copies) by the
Soci6dt des Ecrivains,
under the title "Eugdlie

coming her apprehension,
Jeanne-Marie finally
decided to try and publish
her memories. "I wanted
to pay tribute to Jacqueline
Nardoux, who passed
away two years ago, and
who, in reading my notes
as she typed them on her
computer, encouraged me
to publish them." In early
2005 Jeanne-Marie found
an announcement from the
Socidtd des Ecrivains in a
Lions Club magazine (she
is a member of the service

club), and decided to sub-
mit her manuscript: "I was
extremely surprised to get
a positive response within
15 days," she recalls.
Maybe she was surprised,
but not the reader who dis-

His silver collection is made

plating is the process during
which the silver jewel is
covered with rhodium, a
precious metal of a brilliant
white color usually used on
white gold and platinum to
give the piece the best
brightness and usage resist-

be two that are the same.
Originating in different
locations around the world,
the stones are cut entirely

collection is exclusively
made of 18K yellow gold.
The most classic and pre-

Saint Barth, a paradise

for nesting manne birds

Thanks to its geographic loca-
tion, at the northern end of the
Antilles, Saint Barth, like
Saint Martin, is home to the widest
variety of marine birds in the West
Indies. "Here you find all of the
species that nest in the Antilles
archipelago, but that is not the only
reason that the island is one of the
richest in terms of i!ii l.i, "'\, says
Gilles Leblond, an iniii. i, i i.i who
is studying the nilhi 'i gi' .1 history
of the island. "Contained urban
development and the number of
small islets around Saint Barth help
the island maintain its bird popula-
tion. On just 8 square miles, 13
species of nesting marine birds are

Brown ivoaay or common ivoaay
found. By comparison, in Guade-
loupe (657.15 square miles), there
are only 11 species. In addition,
Saint Barth has a larger number of
Brown Booby (Morus Bassanus)
than any other French Antilles
island, and most likely the same is
true for the White-tailed Tropicbird
(Phaeton lepturus).

Three nesting sites

The islets are not the only popular
nesting spots for marine birds. The
island's cliffs and the salt pond in
Saline are also ideal locations:

Brown Noddy or Common Noddy
A Saline: Threatened with extinc-
tion, the Least Tern (Sterna Antil-
larum), a marine bird found only in
the Antilles and the Gulf of Mexico,
has found a refuge in the abandoned
salt pond. "We think there are only
1500 couples of these birds left in
the Caribbean and their number con-
tinues to diminish. That is because
their zones for reproduction are dis-
appearing. In the past, the made their
nests along the beach, but develop-
ment due to expanded tourism has
pushed them to abandoned salt
ponds, such as Saline. If this unde-
veloped area were to disappear, it
would also mean the disappearance
in saint Barth of this endangered
A The cliffs: Their numbers
decreasing in the Antilles, the White-
tailed Tropicbird (Phaeton lepturus),
the Brown Noddy or Common Nod-
dy (Anous Stolidus), and the Bridled
Tern (Sterna Anaethetus) have found
a perfect place to reproduce along
the cliffs of Saint-Barth. The same is
true for the Petrel (Puffinus). Chased
away by development along the
shoreline, the increase of rats on the
island and the capture of their
chicks, the Petrel, who nest in cavi-
ties, have decreased considerably in

number. "The preservation of certain
sites in Saint Barth allows them to
reproduce peacefully."
A The islets: the same islets around
Saint Barth host the majority of the
nesting marine birds. The White-
tailed Tropicbird (Phaeton lepturus),
Brown Booby, Brown Pelican, Seag-
ulls (Larus), Bridled Tern (Sterna
Anaethetus), Sooty Tern, Royal
Tern (Sterna maxima), Roseate Tern
(Sterna Dougalli), and Common
tern (Sterna Hirundo) all make their
nests here.

Reproduction cycles

Reproduction cycles, which differ
from species to species, are not total-
ly understood: "Certain species, like
the White-tailed Tropicbird have a
high season for reproduction but
seem to make nests -in, 'iII, iul much
the year. On the contrary, others, such
as the Sooty Tern, have a very specif-
ic reproductive season," concludes
the r!ill.h,1 isl

ARIES (March 21- April 19) : Your
communication and intuitive skills
S are very strong. The support of an
active partner will likely be helpful
along the way. You'll have exceptio-
nal mental clarity. You're so char-
ming when you're there one instant
and gone the next. You love to talk,
however, do best to communicate
TAURUS (Apr.21- may 21):
You're usually the last one to argue,
but you may need to stand up for
S yourself, this time. This is particularly
O true in your professional life. Creative
ideas may come pouring forth. These
are most likely to I.. .i;..... 1 applica-
ble to your work. Cooperation is vital,
even if you feel combative.
Competition, though, can be a power-
ful spur to true productivity.

GEMINI (May 22-June 21): Let your
thoughts flow freely. You can come
back later to rearrange and polish
them. Time can be your ally, not your
enemy, if you are able to work with it
in a mature manner. It is reasonable
to make a move, but be very cautious
and patient with others. Your super-
sharp perceptions can be quite helpful
e at La now. Family matters may require
creativity and tact. Understand that
p of the fear is what can make others stubborn

ight-of- CANCER (June 22-July 22): This is
vehicles not about being rude, this is about
Being professional in your relations
in the with others. Your productivity and
priority. morale will improve, thanks to your
diagram understanding of people and systems.
ire out It's intuition that makes it happen, not
simple logic. A remark about your
abilities may trigger an overly strong
response on your part. Step back and
take a breath before reacting too
ITER LEO (Jul 23-Aug 22): A tendency to
go to extremes or to overindulge is
possible. Inner conflicts are stimula-
ted that you were not aware of, cau-
sing some tension or possessiveness.
Be aware that your perceptions may
h" be somewhat skewed and that you
could be the one that's overreacting.
.60 Practice going with the flow. Your
life will not improve until you at
least put some effort to try to make

VIRGO (Aug. 23 -Sept. 23): While
you are in this mode, you should
avoid making any long term promises
or commitments. It is important to
verify your facts and ensure that mat-
ters aren't growing out of misunders-
tanding. There are times when your

mouth is at its most attractive when
closed. Don't, repeat, don't tell, all
you know, or even a tiny part of it.
Play the waiting game, allow other to
make the first move, this time.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 -Oct. 23): Be persis-
tent and determined in .... lii;,.
you do. Your disciplined approach
will finally reward you with a mea-
sure of freedom. You're not ready to
focus on the humdrum detailsof daily
life, you need to spread your wings &
your mind. Communicate more with
family and neighbors. You are more
apt to plan short pleasure trips.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 Nov. 22): You
have your own ideas and plans and
you won't put up with restrictions or
delays being placed on you by those
who lack your insight. You know
what you want and you're going to
get it. Partnership matters will have
your attention now. Trusting partners
and those you work with, is crucial.
There is a possibility of a shift or sud-
den change of plans that could be
very surprising to you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 -Dec. 21):
When psychological games are being
played, pull out that ace or two that
you have up your sleeve. At some
point you may need to defend your-
self against the hidden efforts to
undermine you and what you repre-
sent. You are 1". 1i'.... i capable of
dealing with this, once you make the
choice to do so. You & your ideals
are worth taking care of.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22.- Jan. 20):
One minute ..I. ii,;, will seem to
be going your way, the next a minor
setback or disappointment will have
you down in the dumps and fed up
with the world. Try to steer a steady
positive course. The tide: II. .... ..

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 -Feb. 19) :
You can make your point very well
now, with clarity and perfect persua-
sion. Ensure that the point you're
making will contribute to the healing
of the situation for all concerned.
Remember, you could easily be on the
receiving end of your own solution.

PISCES (Feb. 20 March 20) :
You're a force to be reckoned with
but just don't self-destruct on the way.
So many changes currently going on
in your life gives you an opportunity
to re-evaluate your priorities. Is it
time for a proposition or a proposal?
