An auction held on
Thursday, March 8
at Francois Planta-
tion has raised funds for the
non-profit Jane Goodall
Institute (www.jane-
goodall.org), whose activi-
ties help ensure the well-
being of chimpanzees and
other primates, as well as
animal welfare activities in
general. It is quite fitting
that the auction was for a
majestic bronze sculpture of
a Bonobo Ape, one of a
series of eight made by artist
Florence Jacqueson. The
bidding began as a silent
auction in January, and
when the gavel came down
the winning bidder was Ger-
man industrialist Wolfgang
Stamp, who called in his
winning bid of 30,000 euros
by telephone from Germany,
where it was very late at
night. "He is a regular client
who is a fine arts collector,"
explains Robert Eden, own-
er of Francois Plantation,
who considers the auction a
great success. "This may be
the first time in Saint Barth
that an item has brought so
much at auction," he said.
Of the 30,000 euros, 16,000
euros will be donated to the
Jane Goodall Institute; the
rest goes to the artist. "It
was a fun thing to do and
I'm glad it worked out for
the Institute. With 16.000
euros they can afford a lot
of helpers in certain parts of
Africa to survey and help
care for the apes."

For Eden, the auction is a
continuation of his ongoing

work with both the
Rainforest Foundation
and the Jane Goodall
Institute. "The Bonobo
Ape is the one with the
closest DNA to man," he
explains. "They are
like our
cousins."
The pres-
ence of
the sculp-
ture in the
restaurant
also helped
bring attention
to the plight of these
apes, whose numbers in
the wild are dwindling
rapidly and something
must be done to help protect
them. While the sculpture
that was in the restaurant
this year will be crated and
sent to Germany, Eden plans
to put another bronze
Bonobo from the same
series in the restaurant to


con-
tinue

aware-
ness
about the
apes. "We will
definitely do
another event next
year, but we will not
auction off another of the
same statues," says Eden. "I
would like to do ,,,'lill;i

Efforts like this should cer-
tainly be applauded!

ANDRE BERRY, "THE LITTLE COLLECTOR," Now HAS A MUSEUM


Private collection in
Saint Barth is now
open to the public:
At the age of 67, Andr6
Berry, known as "the little
collector," has taken the
advice of his family and
friends and opened a private
museum to display his treas-
ures. His collections include
many unusual objects, cer-
tain of which are of great
value. He spent his entire
life patiently picking up
found objects on the ground
or on the beach, for exam-
ple, in the basement of his
house and in his garden, he
found English pipes from
the 18th century.

18th-Century English
Pipes And More
English sailors brought the


custom of smoking with
them, using pipes that were
made in Europe, and the
consumption of tobacco
became a more widespread
habit in the islands. English
p1''1,i began to make clay
pipes tinted white, and there
are several examples of

these in a special showcase
made by Andr6 Berry, who
was a professional cabinet-
maker. His collection also
includes Port 1;b iik', dating
from the 1700s, an era when
Port wine began to be


exported around the world.

This collection of small
objects, curios, and antiques
comes to life thanks to a
guided tour by the collector
himself. He has included
family souvenirs from Saint
Barth-such as his great-
g!.,inirlll! '\ sword, dating
from the 1800s. Forms for
blocking hats, old irons that
were heated before use,
wooden coffee mills: all of
these objects are in perfect
condition. Early objects,
from sparkplugs of the
island's first automobile to
its first phonograph, this
collection is like a mini-his-
tory of Saint Barth: To

Windsurfing
ANTOINE QUESTEL NEEDS
7,800 EUROS To BALANCE
His 2007 BUDGET


Local windsurfing
champion, 22 year-
old Antoine Questel
reached his goals in 2006.
He ranked fourth in the
French championships at
Hourtin, finished in 14th
place in the European cham-
pionships in Portugal, and
took llth place honors in
the world championships in
South Korea. LA member
of the Saint Barth Yacht
Club since the age of 12,
Antoine Questel is a great
champion of the colors of
Saint Barth in all of the
competitions in which he
takes part. Yet in order to
balance his budget for 2007
and continue his promising
career, Antoine is still seek-
ing sponsors. After his suc-
cesses in 2006, he returned
to Saint Barth to train and
seek new sponsors. If he
reaches his goal of 30,700
euros for the 2007 season,


he will ne able to participate
in the major events on the
calendar: five long-distance
trials, five AFW events, five
French Formula events, two
Euro Cup events, the world
cup, and the European
championships. The world
championships will take
place in Brazil: a major
event where Antoine should
compete against the other
top windsurfers. His goals
for 2007 include: win the
French championships and
finish in the top ten world-
wide. For the sixth consecu-
tive year, Antoine is on the
list of top athletes created
by the French Minister of
"Jeunesse et Sport."

Lions Club Leads The Fight

Against Blindness


An incredible show
of generosity
allowed the Lions
Club of St Barth6lemy to
raise $8,963 least Saturday
evening during a big Bingo
game held on the dock in
Gustavia. The money will
be used as part of the Lions
Club program, Vision For
All, whose goal is to help
adults and children in
underdeveloped countries
keep something of great
value: their sight.

Experts from the World
Health Organization esti-
mate that if nothing is
done, the world's blind
population could double
from 37 million
to 74 million by 2020.
Many of these cases of
blindness could be avoided
with proper treatment and a
good prevention program.
The Lions Club has
launched its second world-
wide campaign, \i2liII I\i
II, in order to help fight
blindness. Their goal: to
raise a total of $150 million
by June 2008 and continue
to actions of the first Sight-


'he mayor Bruno Magras, with .... Robinel, the '
S, region, and Ernest Brin, president of the Lions


First campaign in 1992-
1995. Each of the 45,000
clubs around the world are
participating in this mas-
sive fund-raising effort,
including the Lions Club in
Saint Barth which organ-
ized a big Bingo game on
the Quay G6n6ral de
Gaulle in Gustavia last Sat-
urday night. "Our goal was
to raise $5,000, and we
actually raised much more
than that," explains the


club's president, Ernest
Brin. The 23 members of
the local club spearheaded
this show of generosity.
"They all participated, even
if they weren't in Saint
Barth," says Brin. Behind
the success of the evening
was the hard work of each
of the members as well as
that of their spouses and
friends who helped with
the organization of the
event. "It has to be said that
the Lions Club of Saint
Barth is the leader of all the
clubs in District 63 and all
of the Caribbean,"
remarked Rodolphe
Robinel, the SightFirst
coordinator for the
Caribbean region, Surinam,
Guyana, and French
Guyana. "Even if in Saint
Barth6lemy, where there is
great potential, if you don't
ask people to participate,
you would obtain i ,il1ini.-."
says Brin. "It should be
pointed out that it was not
the millionaires who
played Bingo. It was ordi-

Every minute, a child
somewhere in the world
goes blind. Blindness and
bad vision in children are at
the highest levels ever. Dis-
eases, like glaucoma and
cataracts or blindness due
to diabetes, touch all levels
of society. The mission of
the 'iglii \li program to
reduce blindness that can
be avoided or cured, espe-
cially in underdeveloped
countries where 90% of the
cases are concentrated. The
increased level of eye dis-
ease, not as serious when
SightFirst began, has
become a major concern
worldwide.
Cataracts, generally linked
to aging, are the leading
cause of blindness in the
world. Yet cataracts and
other eye ailments that
cause blindness can be con-
trolled with proper infor-
mation and enough fund-
ing. Diabetes and glaucoma

also cause vision problems
to millions of people who
might not even be aware
that their sight is in danger
of being lost.
The Lions Eye Health Pro-
gram (LEHP) is a commu-
nity-based public awareness
program that allows Lions
clubs, community organiza-
tions and individuals to pro-
mote healthy vision in the
United States. LEHP is the
first initiative financed by
;igliii il i in industrialized
countries, and also touches
Japan, England, Ireland,
Canada, Australia, and
Turkey. More importantly,
anyone interested in ocular
care, and not just Lions
Clubs, can participate in the
LEHP.
A few months before the
next international Lions
Club convention in
Bangkok, SightFirst has
already raised over $90
million, with $60 million
left to go in order to reach
the goal set at $150 million
to fund the program.
Other than their participa-
tion in the annual Telethon
and the SightFirst cam-
paign, the Lions Club in
Saint Barth also helps raise
money for the local hospi-
tal amongst its various
charitable activities. It also
offers aid to families in dif-
ficulty.
St Barth Weekly n0112

've been to my share
of great carnivals
around the world:
Trinidad, Venice & New
Orleans. They all have
their special personalities
& I loved every one. But
this year I decided to play
it low-key & stay at our
villa on St. Barts during
carnival.

I had no great expectations
of the event (afterall, how
do you outdo the big ones
I had been to?) but my
husband & I got ourselves
a good spot to watch it
from at Le Select. Soon
the rumble came closer.
Drum beats & music got
louder. More & more peo-
ple suddenly appeared in


the street. Then small dec-
orated cars & trucks that
were transformed into
floats came into view.
Everywhere I looked there
were people in costumes,
some very cleverly made.


There were many uproare-
ous greetings as friends
happened upon one other.
Kisses, hugs & dancing. A
real party was following
the parade route. St. Barts
was having a good time!

We moved on, manuver-
ing through the crowd to a
curbside spot by the har-
bor where we saw more
family groups than before.
Across from us stood a
mettallic-blue merman,
mermaid & merbaby; a
devil father & an angel
mother, with their little
angel wearing a halo; and
a family of five cowboys
& cowgirls in matching

hats. All around us people
were having fun. Friends,
families & neighbors
were really .*!iij ii the
festivities.

We ended up that night at
the bar in La Baz next to
two little boys (costumes
half off) hardly able to sit
still. Other kids ran by us,
chasing each other with
cardboard swords. Song &
laughter filled the place.
Then the rains came down
like "cats & dogs." Little
ballerinas with wet tutus
hugged each other under
the awnings & mothers
with wilted costumes ran
by laughing with plastic
bags over their stroller-
babies. Regardless of the
weather, everyone was in a
carnival mood.

Looking back, I think the
true essence of carnival on
St. Barts has to do with it
being a real community
affair. This was a carnival
from the heart & I would-
n't have wanted to be any-
where else that day.

Eve Ducharme Art gallery presents
New Works By Philippe Bertho


Paul Elliott Thuleau and

Antoine Chapon at Porta 34


"If art can touch you, it can
only be through aesthetics
and poetry; those who one
day pretended that realism
no longer had a future have a
rather poor universe!"
Bertho


Currently on exhibit in important
American galleries such as the
Martin Lawrence Gallery, along-
side Andy Warhol, Picasso
and other major painters, the new
lithographs by Philippe Bertho
can now also be seen at the Eve
Ducharme Art Gallery in Toiny.


In 1997, after a long career,
Bertho took a new look at

2 2 St Barth Weekly n¡112 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. An auction held on Thursday, March 8 at Franois Plantation has raised funds for the non-profit Jane Goodall Institute (www.janegoodall.org), whose activities help ensure the wellbeing of chimpanzees and other primates, as well as animal welfare activities in general. It is quite fitting that the auction was for a majestic bronze sculpture of a Bonobo Ape, one of a series of eight made by artist Florence Jacqueson. The bidding began as a silent auction in January, and when the gavel came down the winning bidder was German industrialist Wolfgang Stamp, who called in his winning bid of 30,000 euros by telephone from Germany, where it was very late at night. "He is a regular client who is a fine arts collector," explains Robert Eden, owner of Franois Plantation, who considers the auction a great success. "This may be the first time in Saint Barth that an item has brought so much at auction," he said. Of the 30,000 euros, 16,000 euros will be donated to the Jane Goodall Institute; the rest goes to the artist. "It was a fun thing to do and I'm glad it worked out for the Institute. With 16.000 euros they can afford a lot of helpers in certain parts of Africa to survey and help care for the apes." For Eden, the auction is a continuation of his ongoing work with both the Rainforest Foundation and the Jane Goodall Institute. "The Bonobo Ape is the one with the closest DNAto man," he explains. "They are like our cousins." The presence of the sculpture in the restaurant also helped bring attention to the plight of these apes, whose numbers in the wild are dwindling rapidly and something must be done to help protect them. While the sculpture that was in the restaurant this year will be crated and sent to Germany, Eden plans to put another bronze Bonobo from the same series in the restaurant to continue to build awareness about the apes. "We will definitely do another event next year, but we will not auction off another of the same statues," says Eden. "I would like to do something linked to the rainforest." Efforts like this should certainly be applauded! Bonobo Sculpture Sold At Franois PlantationJudicial officers Fernand Vidal and Michel Fontbonne with Robert Eden and the bronze Bonobo.

0 0 4 4St Barth Weekly n¡112 Aprivate collection in Saint Barth is now open to the public: At the age of 67, AndrŽ Berry, known as "the little collector," has taken the advice of his family and friends and opened a private museum to display his treasures. His collections include many unusual objects, certain of which are of great value. He spent his entire life patiently picking up found objects on the ground or on the beach, for example, in the basement of his house and in his garden, he found English pipes from the 18th century. 18th-Century English Pipes And More English sailors brought the custom of smoking with them, using pipes that were made in Europe, and the consumption of tobacco became a more widespread habit in the islands. English potters began to make clay pipes tinted white, and there are several examples of these in a special showcase made by AndrŽ Berry, who was a professional cabinetmaker. His collection also includes Port bottles dating from the 1700s, an era when Port wine began to be exported around the world. This collection of small objects, curios, and antiques comes to life thanks to a guided tour by the collector himself. He has included family souvenirs from Saint BarthÑsuch as his greatgrandfather's sword, dating from the 1800s. Forms for blocking hats, old irons that were heated before use, wooden coffee mills: all of these objects are in perfect condition. Early objects, from sparkplugs of the island's first automobile to its first phonograph, this collection is like a mini-history of Saint Barth: To enjoy without moderation. Local windsurfing champion, 22 yearold Antoine Questel reached his goals in 2006. He ranked fourth in the French championships at Hourtin, finished in 14th place in the European championships in Portugal, and took 11th place honors in the world championships in South Korea. LAmember of the Saint Barth Yacht Club since the age of 12, Antoine Questel is a great champion of the colors of Saint Barth in all of the competitions in which he takes part. Yet in order to balance his budget for 2007 and continue his promising career, Antoine is still seeking sponsors. After his successes in 2006, he returned to Saint Barth to train and seek new sponsors. If he reaches his goal of 30,700 euros for the 2007 season, he will ne able to participate in the major events on the calendar: five long-distance trials, five AFWevents, five French Formula events, two Euro Cup events, the world cup, and the European championships. The world championships will take place in Brazil: a major event where Antoine should compete against the other top windsurfers. His goals for 2007 include: win the French championships and finish in the top ten worldwide. For the sixth consecutive year, Antoine is on the list of top athletes created by the French Minister of "Jeunesse et Sport."THANKS! : Antoine would like to thank all those sponsors who have supported him.

0 0 6 6St Barth Weekly n¡112An incredible show of generosity allowed the Lions Club of St BarthŽlemy to raise $8,963 least Saturday evening during a big Bingo game held on the dock in Gustavia. The money will be used as part of the Lions Club program, Vision For All, whose goal is to help adults and children in underdeveloped countries keep something of great value: their sight. Experts from the World Health Organization estimate that if nothing is done, the world's blind population could double from 37 million to 74 million by 2020. Many of these cases of blindness could be avoided with proper treatment and a good prevention program. The Lions Club has launched its second worldwide campaign, SightFirst II, in order to help fight blindness. Their goal: to raise a total of $150 million by June 2008 and continue to actions of the first SightFirst campaign in 19921995. Each of the 45,000 clubs around the world are participating in this massive fund-raising effort, including the Lions Club in Saint Barth which organized a big Bingo game on the Quay GŽnŽral de Gaulle in Gustavia last Saturday night. "Our goal was to raise $5,000, and we actually raised much more than that," explains the club's president, Ernest Brin. The 23 members of the local club spearheaded this show of generosity. "They all participated, even if they weren't in Saint Barth," says Brin. Behind the success of the evening was the hard work of each of the members as well as that of their spouses and friends who helped with the organization of the event. "It has to be said that the Lions Club of Saint Barth is the leader of all the clubs in District 63 and all of the Caribbean," remarked Rodolphe Robinel, the SightFirst coordinator for the Caribbean region, Surinam, Guyana, and French Guyana. "Even if in Saint BarthŽlemy, where there is great potential, if you don't ask people to participate, you would obtain nothing," says Brin. "It should be pointed out that it was not the millionaires who played Bingo. It was ordinary, modest people who displayed their generosity." Every minute, a child somewhere in the world goes blind. Blindness and bad vision in children are at the highest levels ever. Diseases, like glaucoma and cataracts or blindness due to diabetes, touch all levels of society. The mission of the SightFirst program to reduce blindness that can be avoided or cured, especially in underdeveloped countries where 90% of the cases are concentrated. The increased level of eye disease, not as serious when SightFirst began, has become a major concern worldwide. Cataracts, generally linked to aging, are the leading cause of blindness in the world. Yet cataracts and other eye ailments that cause blindness can be controlled with proper information and enough funding. Diabetes and glaucoma Lions Club Leads The Fight Against BlindnessThe mayor Bruno Magras, with Rodolphe Robinel, the SightFirst coordinator for the Caribbean region, and Ernest Brin, president of the Lions Club of St BarthŽlemy.

The Lions Eye Health Program (LEHP) is a community-based public awareness program that allows Lions clubs, community organizations and individuals to promote healthy vision in the United States. LEHPis the first initiative financed by SightFirst in industrialized countries, and also touches Japan, England, Ireland, Canada, Australia, and Turkey. More importantly, anyone interested in ocular care, and not just Lions Clubs, can participate in the LEHP. Afew months before the next international Lions Club convention in Bangkok, SightFirst has already raised over $90 million, with $60 million left to go in order to reach the goal set at $150 million to fund the program. Other than their participation in the annual Telethon and the SightFirst campaign, the Lions Club in Saint Barth also helps raise money for the local hospital amongst its various charitable activities. It also offers aid to families in difficulty.For additional information: Saint Barth Lion's Club meetings are held the second and fourth Fridays of every month, upstairs from the store, A Vos Marques, in Gustavia. Since 1990, SightFirst hasÉ• Prevented serious vision loss for 27 million • Provided 80.5 million treatments for river blindness • Awarded US$202 million for 841 projects in 90 countries • Restored sight to 7 million with cataract • Improved eye-care services for hundreds of millions • Built or expanded 213 eye hospitals, clinics and wards • Upgraded 325 eye centers with equipment • Trained 305,000 ophthalmologists, ophthalmic nurses, other professional eye-care workers and village health workers • Launched world's firstever initiative to combat childhood blindness in partnership with the World Health Organization. Thirty pediatric eye-care centers will be established.

0 0 8 8St Barth Weekly n¡112I've been to my share of great carnivals around the world: Trinidad, Venice & New Orleans. They all have their special personalities & I loved every one. But this year I decided to play it low-key & stay at our villa on St. Barts during carnival. I had no great expectations of the event (afterall, how do you outdo the big ones I had been to?) but my husband & I got ourselves a good spot to watch it from at Le Select. Soon the rumble came closer. Drum beats & music got louder. More & more people suddently appeared in the street. Then small decorated cars & trucks that were transformed into floats came into view. Everywhere I looked there were people in costumes, some very cleverly made. There were many uproareous greetings as friends happened upon one other. Kisses, hugs & dancing. A real party was following the parade route. St. Barts was having a good time! We moved on, manuvering through the crowd to a curbside spot by the harbor where we saw more family groups than before. Across from us stood a mettallic-blue merman, mermaid & merbaby; a devil father & an angel mother, with their little angel wearing a halo; and a family of five cowboys & cowgirls in matching hats. All around us people were having fun. Friends, families & neighbors were really enjoying the festivities. We ended up that night at the bar in La Baz next to two little boys (costumes half off) hardly able to sit still. Other kids ran by us, chasing each other with cardboard swords. Song & laughter filled the place. Then the rains came down like "cats & dogs." Little ballerinas with wet tutus hugged each other under the awnings & mothers with wilted costumes ran by laughing with plastic bags over their strollerbabies. Regardless of the weather, everyone was in a carnival mood. Looking back, I think the true essence of carnival on St. Barts has to do with it being a real community affair. This was a carnival from the heart & I wouldn't have wanted to be anywhere else that day.

Currently on exhibit in important American galleries such as the Martin Lawrence Gallery, alongside Andy Warhol, Picasso and other major painters, the new lithographs by Philippe Bertho can now also be seen at the Eve Ducharme Art Gallery in Toiny. "If art can touch you, it can only be through aesthetics and poetry; those who one day pretended that realism no longer had a future have a rather poor universe!" Bertho In 1997, after a long career, Bertho took a new look at figurative objects. He takes us into a universe both creative and surprising, where he presents a series of interesting characters in a totally reinvented hyper-realist universe. His inspiration is now drawn from the American Pop movement, as well as the figurative narrative, where he finds a simple basis on which he can build an innovative and fascinating artistic universe.
