Big Fundraising Success


For Barack Obama


The principal speaker, Marvin Zonis, .


"" '" economy and leadership the University of


Close to 60 people
attended a late
afternoon cocktail
party at Eddie's Restaurant
as a fundraiser for Barack
Obama, a front-runner for
the Democratic nomina-
tion in the US presidential
elections in 2008. The idea
came from two big fans of
the senator from Illinois:
Boston lawyer Richard
Branson and Lucy
Salenger, who lives in
Chicago near Senator Oba-
ma. Together, and during
the vacation they enjoy
every year in Saint Barth,
they decided just two
weeks ago to organize this


cocktail party in support of
Obama's campaign for the
Democratic nomination-
a campaign which contin-
ues to grow stronger and
which faces a major hurdle
on March 4 when the pri-
maries in Texas and Ohio
take place.

Coordinator of the event,
Richard Branson quickly
gave the floor to Lucy
Salenger, who confirmed
her thoughts about her
neighbor: "He's outside,
what he is inside." Next to
speak was Gene Robinson,
a reverend from New
Hampshire, who spoke


about his personal contact
with Obama and the
impression that the senator
left after discussions that
the two men had together:
"He has the capacity for
true change, to break with
the current political game
that leaves 4','. of the
population on the sidelines
in order to serve the other
51%," confirms Robinson.
He then proposed that
each person present donate
half of the cost of a week's
rental in Saint Barth. Next
up was the principal
speaker, Marvin Zonis,
professor of international
political economy and


leadership the University
of Chicago. He spoke on
the theme of "Leadership
and Barack Obama." A
fervent supporter of the
candidate, the professor
explained to those present
what he understood leader-
ship to be, and how Oba-
ma appeared to be the best
candidate to deal with the
many challenges facing
the United States-both
inside and outside of its
borders.

Gustavia: A Historic Architectural Promenade

Sneak preview at the Swedish Design Center


Last Saturday, Jenny
Stening revealed the
design of a hand-
some book that will be pub-
lished this summer, and
which is dedicated to the
Swedish buildings in Gus-
tavia. Entitled "Gustavia: A
Historic Architectural
Promenade," the book was
presented at the Swedish
Design Center, a local
showcase for Swedish
design, which will distribute
the book. Edited in three
languages--French,
Swedish, English- the
book is presented as an
architectural and historic
guide to colonial Gustavia,
focusing on the period from
1785 to 1878 when the
Swedish flag few on the
island. It was during this


period that Gustavia was
built and took on the form it
still has today," notes the
author, who is also an archi-
tect and is known on the
island for the Swedish
walking tour she developed
in 2004 for the former
municipality and which

Tingbrand, the retired
Swedish lawyer, considered
the most important historian

Swedish past of Saint Barth,

organized the first exhibit
of patchwork in Guade-

this artform, while also
successfully participating
in national and internation-
al competitions. In 1996,
she participated in the
finals of the International
Quilt Festival in Houston,


from the archives in Swe-
den and in Saint Barth, as
well as photos that the
author has taken since 1994,
the year that she came to
Saint Barth for the first
time, after a transatlantic
sailing trip with her family.
How did she develop this
serious interest in Gustavia?
"This is one of the rare
colonial cities built by Swe-
den. As a Swede and also an
architect, I had to have been
interested," says Skiciri..
whose architectural thesis in
2001 was on the former
town hall-a building from
the Swedish era in Saint
Barth.

where she has
Eug6nie Blanchard,
known by the nick-
name "Douchy," cel-
ebrated her birthday on Sat-
urday, Febraury 16. At age
112, she became the oldest
woman in Overseas France,
and second oldest woman in
all of France. For the occa-
sion, a reception was held in
her honor on the patio of the
De Bruyn Hospital in Gus-
tavia, where she has lived
since 1980.
For those who do not know
her, Eug6nie Blanchard was
born on February 16, 1896
in the Merlet lJiici lib i .!i!. d
of Saint Barth. She took the
name Sister Cyria Costa
when she entered a convent
in Curacao. It is said that her


nickname, "Douchy," comes
from a childhood deforma-
tion of the word "ducle" or
sweet in Spanish Exiled for
33 in the capital of the Dutch
Antilles, Douchy returned to
Saint Barth for the first time
at the age of 60. She lived in
the family house in Merlet
until she was 84, but almost
blind she moved to the hos-
pital in 1980 and has lived
there ever since. She does
not hear or see very well, but
still speaks a little. She does
not receive any medical
treatment, and is the last of
her 12 brothers and sisters to
survive. She does not have
any direct descendants, but
quite a few relatives come to
see her regularly.

larly anchored at the Quai
G6n6ral de Gaulle, will
appear in police court dur-
ing its next session. On
Monday, February 18, the
water of the harbor was pol-
luted with waste water cov-
ering roughly 300 feet, not
to mention the bad odor that
came with it. From their
post in the immigration


office near the ferry termi-
nal, the gendarmes could
simply follow the offending
layer on the water directly
to the boat which caused the
problem. The captain
immediately admitted his
error, which according to
him had been an accident in
moving the waste water
from one tank to another.
He will have to explain to
the court.

The St Barth Film Festival Takes To The Road


I f you can't go to
the cinema, the
cinema will come
to you." In keeping with
this slogan from Cine
Woul6, the organizers of
the Saint Barth Film Festi-
val plan to show some of
their films and videos in
one or two different neigh-
borhoods of the island dur-
ing the 13th annual festi-
val, which takes place
April 25-30, 2008. The
locations and program
have not yet been decided,
but the idea was finalized
during the recent visit of
Jean-Marc C6saire, who
came to Saint Barth at the
invitation of the organiz-
ers, Ellen Lampert-
Gr6aux, Rosemond
Gr6aux, and Joshua Harri-


son. C6saire is the founder Guadeloupe pi! i I iri.- 35
of the association, Cin6 films as well as videos on
Woul6, which has traveled inflatable screens since
from town to town in 1995. Jean-Marc will

return to Saint Barth dur-
ing the festival for a few
itinerant screenings. He
also has another idea he'd
like to see come to
fruition: open a cinema in
Guadeloupe dedicated
exclusively to art films, as
that does not exist. "To do
so, we need a distribution
network to project the


films and allow us to share
the costs," he explains. His
dream is that each French-
speaking Caribbean island,
including Saint Barth, be
part of this network. "Itin-
erant projections are a
good way to attract people
who would never go to the
movies otherwise," he
adds.
The organizers of the St
Barth Film Festival are
also collaborating with
Cin6 Would as a means to
project videos in large for-
mat and good technical
conditions, ."IciuliHi; that
has been difficult in the
past. "The projections of
the video, Memories Of
Our Past, last year illus-
trated the limited technical
means we have to project
v i d e o s
says Lampert-Gr6aux
"Cin6 Woul6, which has
many different projectors
as well as inflatable and
transportable screens, can
really help," she adds, not
hiding a desire to add new
spectators after slightly
lower attendance at the
festival in the last two
years.

"There might be a second
boat in the future, but for
now we are focusing on the
comfort of the passengers,"
notes Raymond Kalley of
OM Express, who hopes to
get some of the airline
clients, rather than pull from
the clientele of the Voyager
ferries. "There are a lot of
passengers in transit to Saint
Barth who do not like small
planes and the landing in
Saint Barth. For them, the
comfort of a boat is very
important and that is why
we offer real seats, an air-
conditioned cabin, and a
video system is in the
works," he says. OM

Ren6 Fury, responsible for
Mlt6o France in Guade-
loupe, reports on the
weather conditions for
January 2008.

SRain
SWith 3.4" of rain,
the month of Jan-
uary 2008 was considered
rather wet in contrast to sea-
sonal averages. Yet it
remains below the record
rainfall of 5" in 1975. Febru-
ary is following in the same
vein, with 1.9", which is a
lot for a month usually con-
sidered dry, but far from the
record 6.1" that fell in 1989.

Temperatures
The average tem-
perature for the
month was 74.3F
and considered normal. The
lowest temperature for the
month was 69.6"F, while
the hottest daytime tempera-
ture was a bit lower than
normal at 78.90F on January


31. The ocean temperature
was near 78.8"F, average for
the season.

Air
In janvier, the air was a bit
dryer than usual. The aver-
age level of humidity for the
month was 72.4%, com-
pared to 73.6% which is the
usual average for the month
of January.

Wind
Quite frequently blowing
from the northeast, the wind
was often strong during Jan-
uary with gusts reaching 45
mph on January 31.

Forecast
Seasonal forecasts for the
months of March, April and
May call for slightly cooler
than average temperatures.

0 0 2 2St Barth Weekly n¡141Close to 60 people attended a late afternoon cocktail party at Eddie's Restaurant as a fundraiser for Barack Obama, a front-runner for the Democratic nomination in the US presidential elections in 2008. The idea came from two big fans of the senator from Illinois: Boston lawyer Richard Branson and Lucy Salenger, who lives in Chicago near Senator Obama. Together, and during the vacation they enjoy every year in Saint Barth, they decided just two weeks ago to organize this cocktail party in support of Obama's campaign for the Democratic nominationÑ a campaign which continues to grow stronger and which faces a major hurdle on March 4 when the primaries in Texas and Ohio take place. Coordinator of the event, Richard Branson quickly gave the floor to Lucy Salenger, who confirmed her thoughts about her neighbor: "He's outside, what he is inside." Next to speak was Gene Robinson, a reverend from New Hampshire, who spoke about his personal contact with Obama and the impression that the senator left after discussions that the two men had together: "He has the capacity for true change, to break with the current political game that leaves 49% of the population on the sidelines in order to serve the other 51%," confirms Robinson. He then proposed that each person present donate half of the cost of a week's rental in Saint Barth. Next up was the principal speaker, Marvin Zonis, professor of international political economy and leadership the University of Chicago. He spoke on the theme of "Leadership and Barack Obama." A fervent supporter of the candidate, the professor explained to those present what he understood leadership to be, and how Obama appeared to be the best candidate to deal with the many challenges facing the United StatesÑboth inside and outside of its borders.

0 0 4 4St Barth Weekly n¡141Last Saturday, Jenny Stening revealed the design of a handsome book that will be published this summer, and which is dedicated to the Swedish buildings in Gustavia. Entitled "Gustavia: A Historic Architectural Promenade," the book was presented at the Swedish Design Center, a local showcase for Swedish design, which will distribute the book. Edited in three languagesÑFrench, Swedish, EnglishÑ the book is presented as an architectural and historic guide to colonial Gustavia, focusing on the period from 1785 to 1878 when the Swedish flag few on the island. " It was during this period that Gustavia was built and took on the form it still has today," notes the author, who is also an architect and is known on the island for the Swedish walking tour she developed in 2004 for the former municipality and which resulted in the book. Per Tingbrand, the retired Swedish lawyer, considered the most important historian when it comes to the Swedish past of Saint Barth, and Arlette Magras, a local historian, have both read the profs. The book, expected to be available next summer, most likely in August, contains 120 pages illustrated with plans and designs from the archives in Sweden and in Saint Barth, as well as photos that the author has taken since 1994, the year that she came to Saint Barth for the first time, after a transatlantic sailing trip with her family. How did she develop this serious interest in Gustavia? "This is one of the rare colonial cities built by Sweden. As a Swede and also an architect, I had to have been interested," says Stening, whose architectural thesis in 2001 was on the former town hallÑa building from the Swedish era in Saint Barth. "Gustavia: AHistoric Architectural Promenade" will be printed on 150 gram paper with a matte finish. The price will be 45euros. Books can be ordered by email: info@swedishdesigncenter.comArtist Martine LainŽ not only paints, she also does patchwork. Her textiles are on exhibit at MŽtŽo France, near the lighthouse above Gustavia, through March 2. LainŽ organized the first exhibit of patchwork in Guadeloupe and began teaching this artform, while also successfully participating in national and international competitions. In 1996, she participated in the finals of the International Quilt Festival in Houston, Texas, and in 1999, she created a patchwork for Christian Lacroix. In 2000 she took part in the International Patchwork Competition of Chartres, followed by the International Quilt Festival of Tokyo in 2003, before entering a competition at the lace museum in Retournac.

Lobsters Fresh From The Tank100 g for 6 euros EugŽnie Blanchard, known by the nickname "Douchy," celebrated her birthday on Saturday, Febraury 16. At age 112, she became the oldest woman in Overseas France, and second oldest woman in all of France. For the occasion, a reception was held in her honor on the patio of the De Bruyn Hospital in Gustavia, where she has lived since 1980. For those who do not know her, EugŽnie Blanchard was born on February 16, 1896 in the Merlet neightborhood of Saint Barth. She took the name Sister Cyria Costa when she entered a convent in Curaao. It is said that her nickname, "Douchy," comes from a childhood deformation of the word "ducle" or sweet in Spanish Exiled for 33 in the capital of the Dutch Antilles, Douchy returned to Saint Barth for the first time at the age of 60. She lived in the family house in Merlet until she was 84, but almost blind she moved to the hospital in 1980 and has lived there ever since. She does not hear or see very well, but still speaks a little. She does not receive any medical treatment, and is the last of her 12 brothers and sisters to survive. She does not have any direct descendants, but quite a few relatives come to see her regularly.The captain of the boat, Balaju, which is regularly anchored at the Quai GŽnŽral de Gaulle, will appear in police court during its next session. On Monday, February 18, the water of the harbor was polluted with waste water covering roughly 300 feet, not to mention the bad odor that came with it. From their post in the immigration office near the ferry terminal, the gendarmes could simply follow the offending layer on the water directly to the boat which caused the problem. The captain immediately admitted his error, which according to him had been an accident in moving the waste water from one tank to another. He will have to explain to the court.

0 0 8 8St Barth Weekly n¡141"If you can't go to the cinema, the cinema will come to you." In keeping with this slogan from CinŽ WoulŽ, the organizers of the Saint Barth Film Festival plan to show some of their films and videos in one or two different neighborhoods of the island during the 13th annual festival, which takes place April 25-30, 2008. The locations and program have not yet been decided, but the idea was finalized during the recent visit of Jean-Marc CŽsaire, who came to Saint Barth at the invitation of the organizers, Ellen LampertGrŽaux, Rosemond GrŽaux, and Joshua Harrison. CŽsaire is the founder of the association, CinŽ WoulŽ, which has traveled from town to town in Guadeloupe projecting 35 films as well as videos on inflatable screens since 1995. Jean-Marc will return to Saint Barth during the festival for a few itinerant screenings. He also has another idea he'd like to see come to fruition: open a cinema in Guadeloupe dedicated exclusively to art films, as that does not exist. "To do so, we need a distribution network to project the films and allow us to share the costs," he explains. His dream is that each Frenchspeaking Caribbean island, including Saint Barth, be part of this network. "Itinerant projections are a good way to attract people who would never go to the movies otherwise," he adds. The organizers of the St Barth Film Festival are also collaborating with CinŽ WoulŽ as a means to project videos in large format and good technical conditions, something that has been difficult in the past. "The projections of the video, Memories Of Our Past, last year illustrated the limited technical means we have to project videos," says Lampert-GrŽaux "CinŽ WoulŽ, which has many different projectors as well as inflatable and transportable screens, can really help," she adds, not hiding a desire to add new spectators after slightly lower attendance at the festival in the last two years.

Out of service since August 2006, the Rapid Explorer ferry started up again on February 19, under new management, Om Express, and with a new port of embarkation. They used to leave from Philipsburg, but the new route for Saint-MartinSaint-Barth is now from Oyster Pond, twice a day, seven days a week. For the time being, the 40 to 45 minute trip is made by just one boat, Sea Shuttle, which can carry 90 passengers. "There might be a second boat in the future, but for now we are focusing on the comfort of the passengers," notes Raymond Kalley of OM Express, who hopes to get some of the airline clients, rather than pull from the clientele of the Voyager ferries. "There are a lot of passengers in transit to Saint Barth who do not like small planes and the landing in Saint Barth. For them, the comfort of a boat is very important and that is why we offer real seats, an airconditioned cabin, and a video system is in the works," he says. OM Express also set their timetable in conjunction with the afternoon flights: "Most of the large planes arrive at Juliana around or before 3pm. Our 5pm trip allows people to get to Oyster Point without rushing, but also avoids a long wait. We can also organize the transfer from the airport to the ferry if the request is made at the same time at the reservations."

RainWith 3.4" of rain, the month of January 2008 was considered rather wet in contrast to seasonal averages. Yet it remains below the record rainfall of 5" in 1975. February is following in the same vein, with 1.9", which is a lot for a month usually considered dry, but far from the record 6.1" that fell in 1989. TemperaturesThe average temperature for the month was 74.3¡F and considered normal. The lowest temperature for the month was 69.6¡F, while the hottest daytime temperature was a bit lower than normal at 78.9¡F on January 31. The ocean temperature was near 78.8¡F, average for the season. AirIn janvier, the air was a bit dryer than usual. The average level of humidity for the month was 72.4%, compared to 73.6% which is the usual average for the month of January. WindQuite frequently blowing from the northeast, the wind was often strong during January with gusts reaching 45 mph on January 31. ForecastSeasonal forecasts for the months of March, April and May call for slightly cooler than average temperatures. And higher levels of rain are also expected. The forecast for the hurricane season indicates a high level of activity, as in recent years.Januar y W eather Repor t: Normal Temperatures, More Rain
