Gasoline Analyzed By Saint Barth Environment and
Sustainable Development:

LESS THAN 1 % OF BENZENE

PER LITER


To bring an objective opinion
into the passionate debate
about the price of gasoline
on the island, the non-profit associ-
ation Saint Barth Environment
And Sustainable Development,
which has always defended the
position of using fuel with a level
of benzene of less than 1%, recent-
ly analyzed the fuel sold in Saint
Barth. Two samples of lead-free
gasoline were tested: one in
December and one in January.
Both samples were sent to a labo-
ratory in France for analysis.
The results were made known in
the past few days: "the level of
benzene was comparable in both
samples and slightly higher than
0.6%. These results are also com-
parable to those measured during
fuel tests in France, where the
average is between 0.5% and
0.6%," reassures the association in
a press release dated February 16.
They are "reassured" in that the
fuel sold in Saint Barth definitely
has a level of benzene less than
1% as called for by the law. They
add that "taking into account pos-
sible health risks-benzene is very
carcinogenic-the top limit of 1%
should not be put into question,
especially if it is just to save a few
pennies at the pump."


As a reminder, since directive N
98/70/CE of the European Parlia-
ment and council went into effect
on January 1, 2000, the fuel dis-
tributed in France-and in
Europe-should not contain more
than 1% of benzene, a substance
known to be carcinogenic to such
a point that high levels of inhala-
tion can cause death. It wasn't
until 2004 that the law was
applied in Saint Barth, yet Saint
Martin still sells fuel that is does
not meet the standards of the law.

1% and soon less
in the USA
In fact, in Canada, the 1% rule
for benzene has been in effect
since July 1, 1999 in keeping
with their concern for public
health. In the United States, in
contrast to what is frequently
invoked by certain elected offi-
cials, starting with the president,
the level of benzene never
exceeds 2% and is usually closer
to an average of 1%. A directive
of the Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) in the US calls for
the reduction of this level to a
ceiling of 0.62% by 2011. In
reality, only third world countries
actually still use fuel with a high-
er level of benzene.


New License Plates

For Vehicles




I[ 1A


1 A




s of March 3, 2008 all new vehicles
registered on the island will have a
newly designed license plate, which
marks the passage of Saint Barth to a
French Overseas Collectivity. The license
plates will be specific to island with SBH-
the initials for Saint Barthh-on the left
side of the plate, plus up to three numbers
and one to three letters. At a meeting on
February 12, the territorial council dis-
cussed the possibility of also allowing per-
sonalized plates with a combination of let-
ters and numbers.
The new license plates concern only those
vehicles to be registered in the future: exist-
ing ones will not be replaced. However, the
new system is for all vehicles, not just cars
but also two-wheelers, which until now
where not registered, as well as construction
vehicles. Additional information is available
in French on the COM's website:

been established for questions:

Jenny Stening To Launch Book About

Swedish Buildings In Saint Barth


wedish architect Jen-
ny Stening will be at
the Swedish Design
Center of Saint Barth6le-
my on Saturday, February
23 for a pre-publication
launch of her new book
about the Swedish build-
ings of Gustavia. "The fact
that it is one of the few
colonial towns built by
Swedes has made it inter-
esting for me as a Swedish
architect," says SInini.i.
who first visited Saint
Barth in 1994 when she


sailed to the island as a
teenager. She continued to
visit over the years and has
now written a book based
on a walking tour of the
significant Swedish build-
ings and monuments in
Gustavia, a project she
completed in 2004.
The book serves as an
extended guide to her
architectural and historic
tour of colonial Gustavia
with a focus on the period
of 1785-1878 when the
island was under Swedish
rule. It was during this
period that the town of
Gustavia was founded.
"The book begins with an
introduction that presents
the island in a wider per-

MARINE PARK:
END OF YEAR REPORT

) Marine turtles: The holiday period closed
without drama for the numerous marine tur-
tles that frequent the entry channel to the
port, in spite of the numerous boats that move
in and out, sometimes at excessive speed.
And it was necessary to remind people on a
daily basis that the speed limit in the port
zone is three knots. The entry channel has a
lot of marine plant life, making it Pan ideal
spot to find food for the primarily female
green sea turtles. They swim underwater but
must surface regularly to breathe and can be
run over by boats that are going too fast, not
giving them enough time to dive back into
the water. By going slower, one can respect
the turtle population and even take time to
admire them.
) Fourchue and Colombier: The bays of
Fourchue and Colombier were under assault
during the end of year holidays. The marine
park was also busy here reminding people
that the speed limit was still just three knots
iin. 'uii. ii ul the entire port area, for the securi-
ty of swimmers as well as the turtles found in
the sea grasses and marine plants in these two
bays. These underwater prairies serve as
nurseries for fish from the nearby reef, for
food for the turtles, and housing for numer-
ous species such as starfish and sea horses. It
is forbidden to anchor in these areas as not to
pull up the plants.
) Where to anchor: the best moorings? It is
best to use the buoys provided by the marine
park or anchor outside of the protected zones,
and in sand if possible. You want to "insure"
your mooring? Avoid tying up to a buoy and
dropping your anchor. It is better to attach
directly to the mooring as well as the buoy.

La Chorale de Bons Choeurs In

Two Concerts To Raise Money
For A Trip To New York


To help raise money
for their trip to
New York, planned
for April 29-May 6, the
Chorale de Bons Chceurs
will perform Friday and
Saturday evening at the
Anglican Church in Gus-
tavia. The program
includes their popular
repertoire of hymns,
gospel songs, and pops, as
well as "Great Scott," a
musical look at the life of
composer Scott Joplin,
the celebrated pianist and
father of ragtime, music
that was popular in the
early 20th century and a
precursor of jazz. At the
piano, the chorale's music
director, Charles Darden,
plays Joplin, juxtaposing
some of his most famous
songs with snippets about
his life. Darden, who
appeared as Joplin in
2000, will perform in
English on Friday night
and in French on Saturday
night. "We hope this fes-
tive program will attract a
full house," says Darden.
"The money we make
will finance part of the
cost of the trip the choir
hopes to make to New


York. The participants
will pay the rest."
A Possible Concert
At The Church
of Saint Barthelemy
The choir hopes to fly to
New York on April 29. The
date has not yet been set
for the concert they will
perform with the profes-
sional choir of the Church
of Saint Barth6lemy, locat-
ed on Park Avenue. "The
music director has agreed
in principle. We need to set
a date during the week we
are there," notes Darden.
"Bruno Magras has told us
that he has asked the
French consulate to host us
as well, and one evening
will take place in a beauti-
ful apartment on Park
Avenue, hosted in our hon-
or by a friend Mickael
Valenti, composer of the
Hymn to Saint Barth6lemy,
who will be there and to
whom the evening will be
dedicated." The choir
members are looking for-
ward to discovering the
Big Apple. And what better
tour guide than Charles
Darden, who has lived
there for 30 years?

Juliette Becot presents
a Premier Grand Cru Class B


n a visit to Saint Barth, Juliette
B6cot presented Patrick
Granier-the director of

Chateau Beau-S6jour B6cot (premier

Located on the plateau of Saint Martin

old city, Beau-S6jour B6cot is in the
heart of the Saint Emillion region. This
beautiful property produces less than
100,000 1;b -ik '- per year, with roughly
35 acres of grapevines, predominantly
Merlot (70%), with the remainder

ost people know Martine
Lain6 for the paintings she
has exhibited several times
in Saint Barth. This time Martine is
revealing a different side of her artis-
tic personality: she also works with
textiles to create patchwork quilts. In
fact, she has done patchwork for the
past 27 years and has also been a
teacher of this textile art.
She made her first quilted bedspread
when her daughter was born, using
pieces of fabric she collected. This art
form quickly became one of her pas-
sions, along with painting. She organ-
ized the first exhibit of patchwork in
Guadeloupe and began tc.t iln 1-. while
also successfully participating in
national and international competi-
tions. In 1996, she participated in the
finals of the International Quilt Festi-
val in Houston, Texas. In 1999, she
created a patchwork for Christian
Lacroix, then in 2000 she took part in
the International Patchwork Competi-
tion Chartres, followed by the Intema-
tional Quilt Festival of Tokyo in 2003,

At the moment, Martine is in Saint

0 0 2 2St Barth Weekly n¡140 As of March 3, 2008 all new vehicles registered on the island will have a newly designed license plate, which marks the passage of Saint Barth to a French Overseas Collectivity. The license plates will be specific to island with SBHÑ the initials for Saint BarthhÑon the left side of the plate, plus up to three numbers and one to three letters. At a meeting on February 12, the territorial council discussed the possibility of also allowing personalized plates with a combination of letters and numbers. The new license plates concern only those vehicles to be registered in the future: existing ones will not be replaced. However, the new system is for all vehicles, not just cars but also two-wheelers, which until now where not registered, as well as construction vehicles. Additional information is available in French on the COM's website: www.comstbarth.fr and a special email has been established for questions: immatriculation@comstbarth.fr.To bring an objective opinion into the passionate debate about the price of gasoline on the island, the non-profit association Saint Barth Environment And SustainableDevelopment, which has always defended the position of using fuel with a level of benzene of less than 1%, recently analyzed the fuel sold in Saint Barth. Two samples of lead-free gasoline were tested: one in December and one in January. Both samples were sent to a laboratory in France for analysis. The results were made known in the past few days: "the level of benzene was comparable in both samples and slightly higher than 0.6%. These results are also comparable to those measured during fuel tests in France, where the average is between 0.5% and 0.6%," reassures the association in a press release dated February 16. They are "reassured" in that the fuel sold in Saint Barth definitely has a level of benzene less than 1% as called for by the law. They add that "taking into account possible health risksÑbenzene is very carcinogenicÑthe top limit of 1% should not be put into question, especially if it is just to save a few pennies at the pump." As a reminder, since directive N¡ 98/70/CE of the European Parliament and council went into effect on January 1, 2000, the fuel distributed in FranceÑand in EuropeÑshould not contain more than 1% of benzene, a substance known to be carcinogenic to such a point that high levels of inhalation can cause death. It wasn't until 2004 that the law was applied in Saint Barth, yet Saint Martin still sells fuel that is does not meet the standards of the law. 1% and soon less in the USAIn fact, in Canada, the 1% rule for benzene has been in effect since July 1, 1999 in keeping with their concern for public health. In the United States, in contrast to what is frequently invoked by certain elected officials, starting with the president, the level of benzene never exceeds 2% and is usually closer to an average of 1%. Adirective of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the US calls for the reduction of this level to a ceiling of 0.62% by 2011. In reality, only third world countries actually still use fuel with a higher level of benzene.

"The fact that it is one of the few colonial towns built by Swedes has made it interesting for me as a Swedish architect," says Stening, who first visited Saint Barth in 1994 when she sailed to the island as a teenager. She continued to visit over the years and has now written a book based on a walking tour of the significant Swedish buildings and monuments in Gustavia, a project she completed in 2004. The book serves as an extended guide to her architectural and historic tour of colonial Gustavia with a focus on the period of 1785-1878 when the island was under Swedish rule. It was during this period that the town of Gustavia was founded. "The book begins with an introduction that presents the island in a wider perspective and introduced the reader to the fascinating town of Gustavia," note Nils and Susanna Passburg. "Taking a stroll in this compact town, with its one-way streets and urban character, is a good way to discover its identity." The sign on each building in the book tells the story of the structure, from its history to its architecture. Stening will also present a collection of her JB bags, featured exclusively at the Swedish Design Center. She designed these bags using high-tech sailcloth, making the most of the light, durable, and water resistant characteristics of the material and combining it with modern Swedish design. For additional information about Stening: www.swedishdesigncentre.com/index.php/ jennystening.html Stening is one of the numerous Swedish designers and artisans showcased at the Swedish Design Center: "We are honored to represent the many designers whose work, up until now, has not been readily available in a single location. Our design partners all share a commitment to high standards and a reputation of simultaneously being modern, classic, and innovative," says Susanna.

0 0 6 6St Barth Weekly n¡140 Long considered transportation for those without cars, the bicycle has made a comeback as a popular means of locomotion, with many people back in saddle for ecological reasons. In Saint Barth, the topography of the island doesn't lend itself to bicycle travel very well, but a bicycle could become an interesting new way to discover Gustavia, or other parts of the island for those who are courageous enough. In any case, that is the hope of Alexandra and Markku HŠrmŠlŠ, who opened a new company called Sun Velo a few weeks ago, in collaboration with tour guide Helene Bernier of Easy Time. They offer a bicycle rental service, from hourly to monthly. At the moment their fleet is comprised of a dozen Trek bicycles, lightweight hybrids that can do off-road riding as well as adapt to urban travel. Alexandra, who has an ecological outlook, came up with the idea a while back, "but it took time to take shape," she says. ASaint Barth native, Alexandra hopes that people will take the time to discover the island in a new way, by riding off the beaten path. But that's not all: she also hopes to influence the mentality of the residents and show them that a bicycle can contribute to the global ecological balance, as well as the local ecology, "vital for everyone." To help their clients, Alexandra and Markku have designed itineraries at all levelsÑfrom easy to difficult. "It's also a good way to exercise," says Alexandra, who adds that a bicycle is a great way to get around Gustavia. Sun VŽlo also has bicycles for sale. How to reach them? While waiting to find a locale in Gustavia, Sun VŽlo can be reached by telephone at 0690 63 46 09 or 0590 87 18 56, as well as by email at alexaber@wanadoo.fr or easytime971@yahoo.fr. The bicycles will be brought to you wherever you are staying. MARINEPARK: ENDOFYEARREPORT Marine turtles: The holiday period closed without drama for the numerous marine turtles that frequent the entry channel to the port, in spite of the numerous boats that move in and out, sometimes at excessive speed. And it was necessary to remind people on a daily basis that the speed limit in the port zone is three knots. The entry channel has a lot of marine plant life, making it Pan ideal spot to find food for the primarily female green sea turtles. They swim underwater but must surface regularly to breathe and can be run over by boats that are going too fast, not giving them enough time to dive back into the water. By going slower, one can respect the turtle population and even take time to admire them. Fourchue and Colombier: The bays of Fourchue and Colombier were under assault during the end of year holidays. The marine park was also busy here reminding people that the speed limit was still just three knots throughout the entire port area, for the security of swimmers as well as the turtles found in the sea grasses and marine plants in these two bays. These underwater prairies serve as nurseries for fish from the nearby reef, for food for the turtles, and housing for numerous species such as starfish and sea horses. It is forbidden to anchor in these areas as not to pull up the plants. Where to anchor: the best moorings? It is best to use the buoys provided by the marine park or anchor outside of the protected zones, and in sand if possible. You want to "insure" your mooring? Avoid tying up to a buoy and dropping your anchor. It is better to attach directly to the mooring as well as the buoy.Sun VŽlo, Another Way To See The Island

St Barth Weekly n¡1400 0 7 7 To help raise money for their trip to New York, planned for April 29-May 6, the Chorale de Bons ChÏurs will perform Friday and Saturday evening at the Anglican Church in Gustavia. The program includes their popular repertoire of hymns, gospel songs, and pops, as well as "Great Scott," a musical look at the life of composer Scott Joplin, the celebrated pianist and father of ragtime, music that was popular in the early 20th century and a precursor of jazz. At the piano, the chorale's music director, Charles Darden, plays Joplin, juxtaposing some of his most famous songs with snippets about his life. Darden, who appeared as Joplin in 2000, will perform in English on Friday night and in French on Saturday night. "We hope this festive program will attract a full house," says Darden. "The money we make will finance part of the cost of the trip the choir hopes to make to New York. The participants will pay the rest." APossible Concert At The Church of Saint BarthŽlemy The choir hopes to fly to New York on April 29. The date has not yet been set for the concert they will perform with the professional choir of the Church of Saint BarthŽlemy, located on Park Avenue. "The music director has agreed in principle. We need to set a date during the week we are there," notes Darden. "Bruno Magras has told us that he has asked the French consulate to host us as well, and one evening will take place in a beautiful apartment on Park Avenue, hosted in our honor by a friend Mickael Valenti, composer of the Hymn to Saint BarthŽlemy, who will be there and to whom the evening will be dedicated." The choir members are looking forward to discovering the Big Apple. And what better tour guide than Charles Darden, who has lived there for 30 years?

0 0 8 8St Barth Weekly n¡140On a visit to Saint Barth, Juliette BŽcot presented Patrick GranierÑthe director of Match supermarketÑthree wines that she produces in the vineyards of chateau Beau-SŽjour BŽcot: the Ch‰teau Beau-SŽjour BŽcot (premier Grand Cru class B), the Ch‰teau Joanin-BŽcot (C™tes de Castillon) and the Ch‰teau La Gomerie (Grand Cru Saint-ƒmilion). Located on the plateau of Saint Martin de Mazerat, directly to the west of the old city, Beau-SŽjour BŽcot is in the heart of the Saint Emillion region. This beautiful property produces less than 100,000 bottles per year, with roughly 35 acres of grapevines, predominantly Merlot (70%), with the remainder Cabernet-Franc (24%) and CabernetSauvignon (6%). These three wines seem to go perfectly with any meal you can imagine, as they are not too heavy or too sweetÉ rather they have just the perfect mix of lightness and richness. Quite a discovery! These elite bottles will soon be found on the wine lists of various island restaurants, as well as at Match.Most people know Martine LainŽ for the paintings she has exhibited several times in Saint Barth. This time Martine is revealing a different side of her artistic personality: she also works with textiles to create patchwork quilts. In fact, she has done patchwork for the past 27 years and has also been a teacher of this textile art. She made her first quilted bedspread when her daughter was born, using pieces of fabric she collected. This art form quickly became one of her passions, along with painting. She organized the first exhibit of patchwork in Guadeloupe and began teaching, while also successfully participating in national and international competitions. In 1996, she participated in the finals of the International Quilt Festival in Houston, Texas. In 1999, she created a patchwork for Christian Lacroix, then in 2000 she took part in the International Patchwork Competition Chartres, followed by the International Quilt Festival of Tokyo in 2003, before competing in the competition at the lace museum in Retournac. At the moment, Martine is in Saint Barth where she is showing her most recent patchwork as well as some paintings she has not yet exhibitedÑ on the theme of flora. The exhibit, which runs from February 22 through March 2, is at the large space of MŽtŽo France, near the lighthouse above Gustavia. Spirit Air: One flight per weekAs of January, the low-cost company, Spirit Airlines, has only offered one flight per week, compared to the three they had scheduled before that. Only the Sunday flight from Saint Martin to Fort Lauderdale has been maintained. The company hopes to reinstate the flights on Friday and Saturday as of next year. The company has stated that the reduction in flights in due to a reduction in demand by American tourists for flights to Sint Maarten, according to the communications director of Spirit Airlines. Their inaugural flight took place on April 20, 2007, at which time the airline and the government of the Dutch side of the island had hopes to rapidly expand the flight to a daily basis. Missing Visa: Royalty Rejected!Le Prince of Qatar Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani and his court were rejected by immigration officials upon their arrival Tuesday evening at Juliana Airport in Sint Maarten. The group did not have the proper Visa for entry into the Dutch West Indies. The prince and his entourage came from the United States and were in possession of visas issued by the European Union, according to a declaration by Caribbean Exotica.com. The head of the company turned somersaults trying to resolve the problem of the missing visa, even by personally calling government officials in Sint Maarten...But to no avail. Aggravated by the situation, the Prince headed back to the United States. His group had reserved rooms at the Westin Hotel for a week-long stay, and the prince had several meetings with realestate agents with an eye toward purchasing a villa on the islandÉ.
