New laws for Saint Barth

examined by the CLE


WELCOME!
The St. Barth
Weekly is happy to
be back for its fourth
season. The Weekly
is designed to help
you put your finger

Barth, as well as ori-
ginal articles in
English, The St.
Barth Weekly is the
only completely
English-language
newspaper on the
island. It is distribu-
ted on the island
every week from
November through
the end of July. Our
most exciting news
is that each Friday,
The Weekly is also
available online at
Saint Barth Online
(www.st-
barths.com), the
wonderful web site
launched in 1996,
and now run by our
friends Bruno and
G6raldine Colletas.
Thanks to them, you
can download every
edition of The St.
Barth Weekly, so
that no matter

ive years to the day after its first appear-
ance, the CLE-Economic Liaison
Committee-a group of island associa-
tions whose president is Jean-Marc Gr6aux,
hosted a trio of three law professors from
French universities. On Saturday, March 3,
two informational meetings were held about
issues concerning the political evolution of
Saint Barth as it becomes a COM, or Overseas
Collectivity. St6phane Diemert, associate
director for political affairs at the French
Overseas Ministry also came from Paris for
the meetings, and joined the group to help .
explain the changes that are underway.. between two countries in an attempt to avoid

Post Office Paralyzed By A Strike


he postal workers in
Saint Barth have been
on strike since Tues-
day. As we went to press, the
three post offices were still
closed and might still be at
this time. The cause of the
strike was a general unhappi-
ness that had been growing
for some time due to a lack of
personnel deemed essential
by the striking employees, as
well as conditions that had
not been improved over a
period of seven years, and
salaries, which are very var-
ied yet for the same job. As
civil servants, the postal
employees from France liv-
ing overseas get a 40% cost
of living allowance, yet not
employees are paid at the
same rate. They are demand-
ing equal treatment.
Reached by telephone, postal


director Alfred Hamm told us
that certain negotiations have
taken place and guarantees of
improvements given to the
striking postal workers. The
remaining issue is the equali-
ty of salaries. On this point,
Hamm did not hide his point


of view: "Given the cost of
living and rents in Saint
Barth, I understand perfectly
their action and their claims,
and my sympathy lies with
them. That said, the negotia-
tions on the subject should
begin again on Tiu! ,1.) "

Pearls Made in Saint-Barth? Yes!


M other-
of-Pearl
is the
beautiful irides-
cent substance on
the inside of cer-
tain seashells,
especially that of
the Pearl Oyster
(Pinctada radiata).
It has recently
come to light that
this substance has
regenerating
properties for human skin
and bone tissue. All of a
sudden, pharmaceutical and
cosmetic laboratories-
who are always looking for
new active molecules- are
seeking this precious moth-
er-of-pearl. In 2003, Pierre
Lietard, a retired naval offi-
cer, started to raise the Pinc-


tada Radiata oyster in the
waters of the Caribbean as
far south as Venezuela, for
the Science and Sea labora-
tory in Brest, France. His
company "Nacre Caraibe"
was created for this pur-
pose, and already has a
business going on the lee-
ward coast of Guadeloupe.


As of the end of September,
Lietard was awarded a 15-
year authorization to do the
same in Saint Barthdlemy,
and he will soon put his
installation in place: a sim-
ple installation of oyster
beds that has the endorse-
ment and support of the
municipality. The installa-
tion will be on the north-
west side of the bay of Cor-
rossol, near the cliffs, with a
radius of 50 meters and a
depth of eight meters.
The mother-of-pearl culti-
vated in Saint Barth will
have several destinations:
primarily pharmaceutical.
Researchers have realized
that mother-of-pearl, capa-
ble of repairing is own shell
if damaged, has a consider-
able power for the regenera-
tion of human bone tissue,
due to the calcium ions
found in the Pinctada Radi-
ata. This is what Lietard has
been able to extract thanks
to a procedure that he
invented. These ions are


incorporated in
certain medicines,
especially those
for the treatment
of osteoporosis.
The second use
for the mother-of-
pearl produced in
Saint Barth will
be for cosmetics,
S with the ions
placed in beauty,
hydrotherapy, and
medicinal thera-
peutic bath products pro-
duced by Science and Sea.
The mother-of-pearl pro-
vides protection, elasticity,
and suppleness to the skin,
as well as an anti-wrinkle
action when made into
micro-particles: "these
micro-particles are like
miniature mirrors and give a
smooth appearance to the
skin," explains Lietard. This
is a bit of trompe-l'ceil, per-
haps, but effective in eras-
ing wrinkles. The third use
for the mother-of-pearl is
jewelry: Lietard has never
forgotten Polynesia where
he was stationed in the 70s,
and where he helped create
the first farms for cultured
pearls. That's his intention:
in addition to the mother-of-
pearl, he intends to have
each one of the Pinctada
Radiata actually produce a
pearl as well... the peals of
Saint Barth. But don't get
too excited: the first harvest
is not expected for at least
three years!

Opinion

Saint Barthlerny, An Environmental Example


Jean Verrechia is excited
about the new Overseas
Collectivity status for
Saint Barth. He sees it as
an occasion for the island
to truly become an "orga-
nic" environment, in a
play on words related to
the new "organic" laws for
the island. This resident of
Point Milou asks the entire
population to participate
in the island's environmen-
tal development.

"A real opportunity for Saint
Barth6lemy: to take advan-
tage of its new 'organic' sta-
tus and make the island truly
'ORGANIC.' As part of the
natural evolution of Saint
Barth6lemy, the island has
become an example where


all aggravating pollution is
actively rejected. Yet, the
island is at a moment in its
history when any environ-
mental instability could be
catastrophic for its econom-
ic future. We must take
advantage of this moment so
that the future of Saint
Barth6lemy is ensured, not
just for the wealthy part-
timers and tourists, but also
for the residents and all
those who keep the island
alive. There must be a rea-
sonable economic develop-
ment that is not detrimental
to the environmental devel-
opment. On the contrary, the
economic and environmen-
tal development must go
hand in hand in order to
offer an improved environ-


ment for living.
The "rich" tourist, American
or European, is seeking the
sun, the sea, and peaceful-
ness. This hedonistic con-
cept, now considered as
"wellness," is the crux of
"economic-environmental"
values: the search for per-
fection in a harmonious
environment.
As The Economist pointed
out in January 2007, a
"wellness" boom in the
USA and elsewhere is creat-
ing great profits- yet it is
dangerous to think that
money alone can solve all
the problems of Saint Barth
and its future.
The viable evolution of the
island is a job for each of us,
resident or visitor. Fewer
over-sized and polluting
cars, slower speeds on dan-
gerous roads not intended
for \p'ccIlir, _. no useless
waste of energy, noise con-
trol, active recycling, an
economy in the use of elec-
tricity, with the installation
of solar panels, and a feasi-
bility study for wind genera-
tors, building of smaller
houses and smaller swim-
ming pools, more adapted to


the building sites and more
respectful of local traditions.
This same consciousness
should go to the flora and
fauna as well, to stop using
the beaches as "ashtrays,"
and to respect natural sites.
Respect of other people
goes ,. il1. 'Iii .l iN. 0
This kind of thinking is
global. In France, as across
the globe, there is a major
preoccupation with the sur-
vival of our planet, which
begins with our immediate
environment. This way of
thinking, here or elsewhere,
represents the real progress.
Our elected officials are cer-
tainly aware of the conse-
quences. But it has to con-
cern all of us. We should
each make the first gesture,
the one that matters. With a
cultural landscape already
well developed, Saint-
Barth6lemy can also
become an example of envi-
ronmental intelligence.
Every day, it's up to us to
make the simple gestures, to
have the proper reactions
that can help protect our
marvelous corner of the
planet."
Jean Verrechia

The renowned artist,
Raimundo Figueroa,
presents Meeting on the
Red Circle, a group of 27
recent works that were cre-
ated between St. Barth,
New York, and Puerto Rico.
In this collection, imaginary
characters are mixed with
truly and honest friends,
great philosophers and
important thinkers, to
become one: the work of art
itself. The reading of the
works that compose Meet-
ing on the Red Circle may
appear to be extremely sim-

2 2 St Barth Weekly n¡111 WELCOME!The St. Barth Weekly is happy to be back for its fourth season. The Weekly is designed to help you put your finger on the pulse of the local community. Featuring an English rŽsumŽ of the top stories in our French newspaper, Le Journal de Saint Barth, as well as original articles in English, The St. Barth Weekly is the only completely English-language newspaper on the island. It is distributed on the island every week from November through the end of July. Our most exciting news is that each Friday, The Weekly is also available online at Saint Barth Online (www.stbarths.com), the wonderful web site launched in 1996, and now run by our friends Bruno and GŽraldine Colletas. Thanks to them, you can download every edition of The St. Barth Weekly, so that no matter where you are in the world, you can stay in touch with your favorite island. The postal workers in Saint Barth have been on strike since Tuesday. As we went to press, the three post offices were still closed and might still be at this time. The cause of the strike was a general unhappiness that had been growing for some time due to a lack of personnel deemed essential by the striking employees, as well as conditions that had not been improved over a period of seven years, and salaries, which are very varied yet for the same job. As civil servants, the postal employees from France living overseas get a 40% cost of living allowance, yet not employees are paid at the same rate. They are demanding equal treatment. Reached by telephone, postal director Alfred Hamm told us that certain negotiations have taken place and guarantees of improvements given to the striking postal workers. The remaining issue is the equality of salaries. On this point, Hamm did not hide his point of view: "Given the cost of living and rents in Saint Barth, I understand perfectly their action and their claims, and my sympathy lies with them. That said, the negotiations on the subject should begin again on Thursday."Five years to the day after its first appearance, the CLEÑEconomic Liaison CommitteeÑa group of island associations whose president is Jean-Marc GrŽaux, hosted a trio of three law professors from French universities. On Saturday, March 3, two informational meetings were held about issues concerning the political evolution of Saint Barth as it becomes a COM, or Overseas Collectivity. StŽphane Diemert, associate director for political affairs at the French Overseas Ministry also came from Paris for the meetings, and joined the group to help explain the changes that are underway. . The first meeting, held in late morning, provided a general outline of the laws that will go into effect, while the afternoon meeting dealt with the fiscal agreement, a document signed between two countries in an attempt to avoid double taxation by individuals and companies. This agreement will detail the method for determining fiscal residence and where taxes will be paid on revenue and holdings. Post Office Paralyzed By A Strike New laws for Saint Barth examined by the CLE StŽphane Diemert, associate director for political affairs at the Overseas Ministry with the three law professors from various French Universities, Jean-Claude Lemaignen, communication coordinator for the CLE, Jean-Marc GrŽaux and Roger Lacour of the CLE.

0 0 4 4St Barth Weekly n¡111 Motherof-Pearl is the beautiful iridescent substance on the inside of certain seashells, especially that of the Pearl Oyster (Pinctada radiata). It has recently come to light that this substance has regenerating properties for human skin and bone tissue. All of a sudden, pharmaceutical and cosmetic laboratoriesÑ who are always looking for new active moleculesÑ are seeking this precious mother-of-pearl. In 2003, Pierre Lietard, a retired naval officer, started to raise the Pinctada Radiata oyster in the waters of the Caribbean as far south as Venezuela, for the Science and Sea laboratory in Brest, France. His company "Nacre Cara•be" was created for this purpose, and already has a business going on the leeward coast of Guadeloupe. As of the end of September, Lietard was awarded a 15year authorization to do the same in Saint BarthŽlemy, and he will soon put his installation in place: a simple installation of oyster beds that has the endorsement and support of the municipality. The installation will be on the northwest side of the bay of Corrossol, near the cliffs, with a radius of 50 meters and a depth of eight meters. The mother-of-pearl cultivated in Saint Barth will have several destinations: primarily pharmaceutical. Researchers have realized that mother-of-pearl, capable of repairing is own shell if damaged, has a considerable power for the regeneration of human bone tissue, due to the calcium ions found in the Pinctada Radiata. This is what Lietard has been able to extract thanks to a procedure that he invented. These ions are incorporated in certain medicines, especially those for the treatment of osteoporosis. The second use for the mother-ofpearl produced in Saint Barth will be for cosmetics, with the ions placed in beauty, hydrotherapy, and medicinal therapeutic bath products produced by Science and Sea. The mother-of-pearl provides protection, elasticity, and suppleness to the skin, as well as an anti-wrinkle action when made into micro-particles: "these micro-particles are like miniature mirrors and give a smooth appearance to the skin," explains Lietard. This is a bit of trompe-l'Ïil, perhaps, but effective in erasing wrinkles. The third use for the mother-of-pearl is jewelry: Lietard has never forgotten Polynesia where he was stationed in the 70s, and where he helped create the first farms for cultured pearls. That's his intention: in addition to the mother-ofpearl, he intends to have each one of the Pinctada Radiata actually produce a pearl as wellÉ the peals of Saint Barth. But don't get too excited: the first harvest is not expected for at least three years! Pearls Made in Saint-Barth? Yes! Stay in touch WHEREVER YOU ARE EVERY FRIDAY AT www.st-barths.com

0 0 6 6St Barth Weekly n¡111 Launched in 1990 by the International Lions Club, the goal of the SightFirst I campaign was to wipe out all avoidable and reversible blindness. It was successful in improving the eye care of almost 100 million people and in stopping the loss of sight for almost 24 million people. Across the world, 250 eye care centers were created and more than 68,000 people from some of the world's poorest nations were trained in health care, and particularly eye care. Yet in spite of this unprecedented event, blindness is a persistent global problem. Recently, the World Health Organization estimated that the number of blind people in the world could increase from 37 to 74 million by 2020. Yet much all of this blindness could be avoided if people with diseases that result in blindness received proper medical care. Six dollars is all is takes. So faced with this alarming statistic, the Lions Club decided to start a second campaign for sight, baptized SightFirst II. Its goal is to raise 200 million dollars between now and July 2008. Each of the 46,000 Lions Clubs will work on a grass roots level. The Club in Saint BarthÑwhose president is Ernest Brin this yearÑis taking part and deiced to organize a bingo event to benefit SightFirst II. It will be held on Saturday, March 10 at 7:00pm on the Quai GŽnŽral de Gaulle. Rodolphe Robinel, former district governor, former international director 20022004, and currently the regional coordinator for SightFirstII, will be present. Rain 1.2 inches for the month, compared to an average of 1,6 inches for February. The record dryness was just 0.15 inch of rainfall in February 1968.T emperatur es The average high was 85.4¡F, and the average low 74.6¡F. These figures are higher than the seasonal norms. The lowest temperature of the month was 71.7¡F on February 20, while the highest moment of the month was 89¡F on February 10. The ocean temperature remained around 80¡F, which is very high for this time of year. Humidity The average humidity in February varies from 59% for the low to 84% for the high. The average low was higher than usual, due to the warm ocean temperatures. W ind The wind blew almost exclusively from the North-East and was moderate. Maximum gusts reached 65km/h on February 4.

0 0 8 8St Barth Weekly n¡111Jean Verrechia is excited about the new Overseas Collectivity status for Saint Barth. He sees it as an occasion for the island to truly become an "organic" environment, in a play on words related to the new "organic" laws for the island. This resident of Point Milou asks the entire population to participate in the island's environmental development. "Areal opportunity for Saint BarthŽlemy: to take advantage of its new Ôorganic'status and make the island truly ÔORGANIC.'As part of the natural evolution of Saint BarthŽlemy, the island has become an example where all aggravating pollution is actively rejected. Yet, the island is at a moment in its history when any environmental instability could be catastrophic for its economic future. We must take advantage of this moment so that the future of Saint BarthŽlemy is ensured, not just for the wealthy parttimers and tourists, but also for the residents and all those who keep the island alive. There must be a reasonable economic development that is not detrimental to the environmental development. On the contrary, the economic and environmental development must go hand in hand in order to offer an improved environment for living. The "rich" tourist, American or European, is seeking the sun, the sea, and peacefulness. This hedonistic concept, now considered as "wellness," is the crux of "economic-environmental" values: the search for perfection in a harmonious environment. As The Economist pointed out in January 2007, a "wellness" boom in the USAand elsewhere is creating great profitsÑ yet it is dangerous to think that money alone can solve all the problems of Saint Barth and its future. The viable evolution of the island is a job for each of us, resident or visitor. Fewer over-sized and polluting cars, slower speeds on dangerous roads not intended for speeding, no useless waste of energy, noise control, active recycling, an economy in the use of electricity, with the installation of solar panels, and a feasibility study for wind generators, building of smaller houses and smaller swimming pools, more adapted to the building sites and more respectful of local traditions. This same consciousness should go to the flora and fauna as well, to stop using the beaches as "ashtrays," and to respect natural sites. Respect of other people goes without saying. This kind of thinking is global. In France, as across the globe, there is a major preoccupation with the survival of our planet, which begins with our immediate environment. This way of thinking, here or elsewhere, represents the real progress. Our elected officials are certainly aware of the consequences. But it has to concern all of us. We should each make the first gesture, the one that matters. With a cultural landscape already well developed, SaintBarthŽlemy can also become an example of environmental intelligence. Every day, it's up to us to make the simple gestures, to have the proper reactions that can help protect our marvelous corner of the planet."

The renowned artist, Raimundo Figueroa, presents Meeting on the Red Circle, a group of 27 recent works that were created between St. Barth, New York, and Puerto Rico. In this collection, imaginary characters are mixed with truly and honest friends, great philosophers and important thinkers, to become one: the work of art itself. The reading of the works that compose Meeting on the Red Circle may appear to be extremely simple at first view: but going deeper, one will find that they reveal the secrets of self-realization. The exhibit will open Thursday, March 8, 2007 at 7:00 pm at the contemporary art gallery, To.B.Art, at Le Carre d'Or, Gustavia. The show will be open to general public until March 26, 2007 Jean Baptiste, the sommelier from Absolutely Wine, Jean-Luc Grabowski, chef at the restaurant des Pcheurs, who created a special menu based around the wines of Bandol, Franois Lecronier, the sommelier from the restaurant Esprit de Saline, and Laurent Bunan, one of the owners of the Provenal winery.The Wines of Bandol at Le SerenoAwine tasting of the reds, whites, and rosŽs from Domaines Bunan, which owns and produces the Moulin des Costes and Ch‰teau La Rouvire wines in the Bandol region of southern France, was organized by Absolutely Wine in Grand Fond. Denis Perrollaz est un peintre dont la peinture Žvolue entre l'abstraction, "l'arte povera" et la figuration libre. L'Abstraction d'abord parce qu'il n'a pas besoin des objets pour exprimer sa vision, art pauvre parce qu'il peint avec et sur tout ce qui lui tombe sous la main, figuration libre parce qu'une sorte de calligraphie n'est pas absente dans sa recherche du mouvement. Il voyage, il passe et semble voir, dans chacune des expŽriences de sa trajectoire, des occasions uniques de matŽrialiser une vision sous l'influence et les dŽpendances du moment. Il matŽrialise les paradoxes entre la beautŽ et des valeurs qui s'y opposent, et qui apparaissent en filigrane, transparences ; un monde double o se c™toient le pire et le meilleur, dans l'harmonie du quotidien. Il semble peindre passionnŽment, ˆ la dŽcouverte, riche d'une curiositŽ insatiable que sa modestie ne parvient ˆ voiler. On reste parfois muet devant l'art abstrait, devant ses tableaux on s'interroge. Il expose au Nikki Beach du 9 au 18 mars 2007.D D e e n n i i s s P P e e r r r r o o l l l l a a z z a a u u N N i i k k k k i i B B e e a a c c h h Raimundo Figuerpa at to b.art Gallery Exclusive villa in Domaine de Mont Jean available May1st Ð December 15th, 2007 (7.5 months) 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, large private pool view over ocean, private beach access, furnished French Sat TV, High speed internet connection, 6600   / month plus utilities and services Villa La Belle Aurore Contact: villalabelleaurore@earthlink.net Phone Owner NYC, USA 1-646-495-1686 Concierge on St. Barthelemy (0) 690-227-435 www.stbarth.net/lba
