59 year-old
from Saint
Nazaire died on
Thursday, February
9, after a collision
between a small
zodiac of 2.5 meters
that he was driving,
and the small motor-
boat from the yacht
"Daybreak," a Mar-
lin 350 approximate-
ly 11 meters long
and piloted by one
of the capitans of
the yacht, a 38 year-
old man from New
Zealand. The wife of
the deceased man
was also suffered
injuries to one of her

legs and was immediately
taken by boat to the hos-
pital in Saint Martin. The
couple, who had left
France five years ago to
sail around the world on
their boat, "Opus," had
just arrived in Saint
Barth. They didn't even
have the time to do their
entry paperwork when the
accident took place at
7:20pm in the port chan-
nel, as the two boats
headed to the Port of
Gustavia. The pilot of the
small zodiac fell into the
water, was his wife was
able to stay aboard. The
efforts by firemen and
rescue workers to try and
revive him were in vain
and it seems that he had
died immediately. The
exact cause of death is
unknown, and will be
determined by an autopsy
in Saint Martin this week.
An investigation into the
accident has begun. After
the first reports from wit-

nesses were given to the
national police in Saint
Barth, the investigation
was turned over to the
Northern Islands nautical
brigade based in Saint
Martin. The New Zealan-
der, who presented him-
self to the police, has
been charged with two
things: "involuntary
homicide caused by the
manifest violation of
security regulations
imposed by the law," and
as for the second victim,
"involuntary injuries
causing the temporary
inability to work for less
than three months caused
by the manifest violation
of security regulations
and safety as imposed by
the law." As indicated in
his deposition, the pilot
was driving at an exces-
sive speed, wel above the
three knot speed limit
imposed for navigation in
the channel.

Master Watchmaker

Parmigiani Fleurier

A t Fleurier, in the Neuchatel
region of the Jura, Michel
Parmigiani creates watches
that are also art objects.

Mesure et Art du Temps (Measure
and Art of Time) is the name of the
watch business that Michel Parmi-
giani has set up in Fleurier, and it's
also the philosophy of this master
watchmaker who launched his own
brand name in 1996. Measure as in
rigor, technical sophistication and
precision; art as in beauty, balance
and harmony. The two form an ide-
al combination in the timepieces
that Michel Parmigiani has been
restoring for years now. After train-
ing at the advanced watch-making
school in Fleurier, which no longer
exists, he dedicated many years to
the renovation of old timepieces. Then
in 1996 he launched his own brand

name with financial backing from the
Sandoz Foundation. He named it
Parmigiani (his name) Fleurier (his
village) as tradi-
tion also means a
place, his roots.

gral part of Swiss watch-making his-
tory, are just as indispensable to his
work of creation as the immense vol-
ume of expertise he has been gather-
ing over more than twenty years of
examining with his expert eye the
most sophisticated of old watch
movements. The remaining activity is
divided into two parts, one-off or spe-
cial pieces (about 10% of the total)
and standard lines: Classic, Toric,
lonica, Basica etc.

The strength of a style

Parmigiani's strength is no doubt a
result of the consistency in the collec-
tions and the excellence of the manu-
facturing, but also of a unique design
which makes a Parmigiani watch
stand out from any other. It's a signa-
ture and, due to its rarity, an individual
item with a strong style; the Parmi-
giani style, for the watchmaker from
Fleurier, has found a style of his very
own. Proof enough, no doubt, that he's
won the wager he made in 1996, and
that through him the spirit of Fleurier,
that unique, age-old tradition which
has nourished and enriched him, con-
tinues to be perpetuated.

wounded in 1996, Sub-
Protect is a non-profit
organization dedicat-
ed to the protection of
the environment and
the underwater sea
beds. Last year, they
provide "Ashtrays on
the Beaches." The
idea is to provide the
installation of cans-as-
ashtrays at the
entrance to the beach-
es so that smokers can
use the cans to collect
their cigarette butts.
14 of the island's 22

beaches will be outfitted.
Feel free to use them to
help us keeping Saint-Barth

P e W h A weekly column about island residents and
GPeople Watch guests from foreign shores
By Ellen Lampert-Greaux

Jeffery Dread, Artist

I Tlove Saint Barth," says visu-
al artist Jeffrey Dread, over
coffee one morning at Maya
To Go. He cuts quite a figure on the
island, zipping around is his black
convertible Mini Cooper, dreadlocks
bouncing in the sun. His love for the
island has translated into a Valen-
tine's gift, an exhibit of his work
(February 14-21) at Nikki Beach,
entitled "Celebrating Valentine with
Artwork inspired by Love, Life and
Synergy." His bright, multi-colored
images of stars were seen at Nikki
Beach in December in an exhibit
called "Hollywood Icons."
A native of Haiti, Dread moved to
New York in 1987 to study art, and
escape the political climate of his
country. "I worked as a taxi driver to
pay for college," he recalls, and per-
haps it was all this driving through
the streets of the Big Apple that
helped him fall in love with the city.
"I liked the skyscrapers and fast pace
of life," he says. He was soon part of
the scene, living in New York but jet-
\cI'in to the Cote D'Azur. St. Barth
couldn't be far behind, and once he
discovered the island, he considers it
his home away from home.
In 1998, Dread co-founded Celebri-
tyVibe Entertainment, Inc.; a compa-
ny with an extensive digital photo-
graph library. Eventually he began
making portraits of the many
celebrities he has photographed,

including Michael Jordan, Ashley
Simpson, Beyonce Knowles, Giorgio
Armani, Mariah Carey, Mick Jagger,
Paris Hilton, Sophia Loren, and Tom
Cruise. The list of people who have
his work on their walls is equally
star-studded. His artwork can be pur-
chased and commissioned at Pho-
toVibe Gallery, in South Miami
Beach. His choice of colors is elec-
tric and vibrant: "I love Carnival in
Rio and in Haiti," he admits, adding
that the colors seen in Carnival cele-
brations helped inspire his work.
The special valentine's exhibit
includes paintings based on love, life
and synergy, such as a large pink

I mw ar I mnM m
canvas with four white circles and
lots of little red hearts, or another of
a large red heart with the words "I
love you" written in many different
languages. Circles and words such as
"romance, friendship, bond, and liai-
son," represent the idea of synergy
between two people, as Dread
believes in "circles of life" and "cir-
cles of love."
If Nikki Beach represents a certain
type of celebrity-induced lifestyle,
Dread is part of the picture, with
exhibits planned at Nikki Beach loca-
tions around the world. "We are all
celebrities in our own rights," he
says. "We all can make a difference."

La Bouillabaisse Marseille:

La Bouillabaisse, the most typical dish of Marseille, was originally
a fisherman's dish. While sorting out the fish intended to be sold
they used to put aside certain species which they would then
prepare for their families and themselves. It is a very simple family
dish which has evolved over the years.

Today there is a Bouillabaisse Chart that includes precise
ingredients which are important to maintain tradition
while respecting the culinary art of the Chef.

La Bouillabaisse Marseille must consist of at least 4 types
of Mediterranean rock fishes: scorpion fish, white scorpion fish,
red mullet, skate, conger eel, john Dory, cigale de Mer (Mediterranean
crustacean resembling a lobster) or spiny lobster.

The Bouillabaisse is served in two servings, the fresh fish soup
and the whole cooked fish.
There is, however, one fundamental rule: the fish must be cut up in
front of the guests. La Rouille, which is a typical sauce, accompanied
with croutons to be served both with the soup and the fish.

You can enjoy la Bouillabaisse Marseille at Restaurant des Pecheurs
where traditional Marseille Bouillabaisse is served for lunch and
dinner each friday.

Complete coverage

for ADSL and Amigo by April

limited to the windward side of
the island at the moment,
Dauphin Telecom's service,
Domaccess, launched in Saint Barth
in February 2005, will cover the
entire island by April, thanks to a
second DSL relay in Lorient. This is
the same date that AMIGO, a GSM
mobile phone network launched in
Saint Martin in June 2003, will func-
tion in Saint Barth, as announced last
Thursday by Alain Haillant, founder
and director of Dauphin Telecom,
during a press conference presenting
the new services of this group based
in Saint Martin.
For the moment, the news is limited
to price cuts in terms of ADSL serv-
ice. Dauphin Telecom, the only
company to offer unlimited down-
loads, will have five different offers:
from reception at128K with 64K for
transmission at the low price of 19
euros, to the service at 1M/256K for
59.90 euros. There will also be a
"booster" service at 1M/128K for
just 39.90 euros for those who
download large files regularly. The
company has also indicated a con-
siderable boost in service once Alca-
tel, with the support of the Regional
Council, installs the "Guadeloupe
digital cable" Guadeloupe and Puer-
to Rico via Saint Martin with a spur
to Saint Barth.

An uphill battle
For many, Dauphin Telecom is a lit-
tle like David fighting Goliath: a
local company that has grown
thanks to its perseverance and
capacity for innovation. Launched
in July 1998, in Saint Martin by
Alain Haillant, who is also the man-
ager of Cariburo, the exclusive rep-
resentative for Canon in the North-
ern Islands, Dauphin Telecom beat
the odds when they were given a
GSM license and launched their
first small mobile phone network in
June 1999. In June 2003, GSM

AMIGO replaced that first network,
once Dauphin was given the green
light. At the same time, Dauphin
launched Domaccess, its ADSL
service, beating France Telecom
whose service was available a few
weeks later. Dauphin Telecom also
offers prepaid Intercard phone
cards, claiming 70% of the market
in the Northern Islands. In Saint
Barth, Dauphin's best known serv-
ice is "1613," a prepaid phone serv-
ice that offers substantial reductions
on long distance communications.

oday, Thursday
February 16,
Eug6nie Blanchard,
who is better known by
her nickname, Douchy
i 't. cLclhlcll in papamien-
to), celebrates her 109th
birthday, while Irmise
Rosey will have 103 can-
dles on her cake next
monday, February 20.
Both centenarians are
pensioners at hospital de
Bruyn (Irmise has lived
there since 1975 and
Douchy since 1980),
where their lives continue
but are rather restricted.
Douchy, who has not spo-
ken for quite a long time,
also has hearing and sight
problems, but does not
require any specific med-
ical treatment. Her strong
constitution has given her
quite an exceptional life
span. Irmise had her left
leg amputated in 1998,
and receives daily treat-
ment to increase her
blood circulation. She can
no longer see, but does
speak although her words
are sparse, according to
her nephew who was
interviewed at the time of
his aunt's 100th birthday.
In spite of her advanced
age, Douchy is not the
oldest woman Guade-
loupe. That honor
belongs Mathilde Albina
n6e Tafna, who will be
111 years old in March
16. She was born in
Lamentin in 1895 and has
lived in a geriatric center
in Raizet since 1985.

egend had it
that both
Abb6 Maher r
and Father Bathes
were buried in the
Catholic Church in
Gustavia, supposed-
ly beneath the
stones that marked
their tombs. But this
turned out to be not
exactly true. Work-
ers who are current- Qi0tr .
ly renovating this t :.
religious structure .*W
have found that the *
tombs of the two a
priests are actually
elsewhere, one
along the axis from
the altar to the main -
door, the other to
the left of the altar.
It is -. Hu l that the
stones marking their
tombs were relocat-
ed the last time the
church was renovat-
ed in the 1970s.
The stone for Father
Jean Baptiste
Barthes indicates
that he was born in
1793, and that he
arrived in Saint
Barth in 1833 where he assumed the
duties of parish priest. He died in Gus-
tavia on April 7, 1836, and was buried at
first in the cemetery in Saint-Jean before
he was inhumed in the church during its
first major renovation. Built in 1829, the
church was battered by a hurricane in
1837, and as a result underwent renova-
tions that stretched until 1843!
Abb6 Alfred Mah6 arrived in Saint
Barth in July 1857, and set about sepa-
rating the parishes of Lorient and Gus-
tavia. The result? From 1857 through
1972, when the two parishes were once
again made into one, there were two

priests officiating in Saint-Barth: one in
the church in Lorient and one in Gus-
tavia. But Abbe Mah6 did not stay on
the island for long. He passed away at
the age of 33 in Goyave (Guadeloupe)
on October 3, 1858, where he was
buried until he was moved on November
20, 1859, to the church in Gustavia, with
his sepulture placed in front of the altar.
Last Wednesday, the parish council was
to meet and decide if they should
replace the stones above the tombs, or
leave the stones where they are and/or
make new plaques indicating the pres-
ence of the tombs.

E ric Delcroix,
who was
recently named
director of the Aeva
observation network
for sea turtles in the
archipelago of Guade-
loupe, spent last week
with the staff of the

marine park in St
Barth. Last Friday, he
gave a public lecture
entitled "Biology,
Ecology, Preservation
and Protection of Sea 1
Turtles," at Espace J M
M6t6o Caraibes. The H
lecture provided a o ea
chance to discover (or
rediscover) the secret life of these
marine reptiles. Here are a few of the
main points discussed:

Seven species worldwide
Seven species of sea turtles were
counted worldwide in a recent cen-
sus. Of the six varieties found in the
Atlantic, five are observed more or
less regularly in the archipelago of
Gaudeloupe. These include hawkbill
turtles, green turtles, leatherback tur-
tles, loggerheads, and the most rare,
Olive midley. The hawkbill, green,
and leatherback species feed and
reproduce here while the loggerheads
and "-.' c" only come to feed, as the
loggerheads prefer the waters of
Florida or Brazil for reproduction,
while the "olives" head toward the
beaches of British and French
Guyana as well as Surinam.

Reproduction can be difficult
The numbers say it all: out of every
1,000 eggs that are laid, only one
becomes an adult turtle. Knowing
that these reptiles are late bloomers in
terms of sexual maturity (not before
the age of 25), a female, according to
her species, can lay between 400 and
800 eggs per season, but she only
lays eggs every other year. The guess
is that a female only gives birth to a
"viable" turtle once every four years.
Reproduction of marine turtles is dif-

ficult and rare, and even if they have
succeeded in existing for many thou-
sands of years, it would take very lit-
tle for them to disappear completely.

How do they lay eggs?
At night, the female leaves the ocean
and finds a small, calm beach that cor-
responds more to less to the place
where she was born. Their instinct is
highly developed and according to the
species, they might cover -i6 'u\.,iI. of
miles to lay their little eggs in the same
place they themselves were born. The
ritual of egg-laying is always the
same: the female sweeps the sand for
about ten minutes then with her back
feet digs a cylinder about two to three
feet deep, where she places the eggs.
She recovers the nest, and two months
later the babies emerge.

Temperature determined
the sex of the turtles
The sex ratio of sea turtles is general-
ly one male to three females but this
is actually decided by the temperature
of the water. There are more e males
where the water is colder, more
females in warmer water. A tempera-
ture near 80 degrees results in an
equal number of males and females.
Once born, the baby turtles leave the
nest and head toward the sea, yet as
they head for the most highly lighted

place, urban lighting
nearer and nearer to
the beaches can cause
the problem of babies
found on the road
behind the beach.
Allowing that a baby
reaches the water, it
swims for four days to
reach the open seas
where it will spend the
first two years of its
life, during the phase
called "pelagic." Later,
it returns to the shore-
line, where until it
reaches sexual maturi-
ty, at 25 or 30 years, it
goes back and forth to
the open seas. This is the "juvenile
benthic" period. As an adult, it will be
able to reproduce. Coupling takes
place in the ocean, near the place
where the eggs will be laid. Several
males may be interested in the same
female and the process might get a lit-
tle violent.

With almost 400 egg "nests" noted
every year, Marie-Galante is by far
the most important spot in the
archipelago. Most are by hawkbills,
with about 30 by green turtles.
Petite Terre is the second most pop-
ular site, and the north coast of
Basse Terre is popular for
leatherbacks (50 nests per year),
hawkbills and green turtles occa-
sionally lay their eggs here as well.
With just six nests observed per
year, Saint Barth is far from first
place in terms of eggs, but that does
not mean that sea turtles are rare
here. In fact, it is only recently that
turtles laying eggs have been
observed. Yet due to observations
made by various diving clubs and
the marine park, it seems as if Saint
Barth is primarily a zone where sea
turtles come to feed, and that more
and more of them are apparent in
the waters around the island.
