Dengue:

42 New Cases

In One Week
here were 42 new cases of dengue fever
recorded in Saint Barth during the second
week of January, marking a new flare up of
the disease. Two people were hospitalized, bring-
ing to 14 the number of cases treated at the hospi-
tal since October, when the recent bout of the dis-
ease began, with a total of 375 cases to date.
Dengue fever, one of the most common mosquito-
borne viral diseases in the world, is an illness
caused by infection from a virus transmitted by
the Aedes mosquito. It is characterized by the sud-
den onset of high fever, (which can last up to 7
days or more), often accompanied by one or more
of the following symptoms: intense headache,
back ache, body aches, joint pains, loss of
appetite, nausea, vomiting and the development of
skin rashes. The most severe form is known as
hemorrhagic fever (which includes a tendency to
bruise easily or other types of skin hemorrhages,
bleeding nose or gums, and possibly internal
bleeding).
How to avoid the disease? In addition to general
spraying against mosquitoes by the Collectivity,
as well as hotels and rental villas, guests and
residents should make sure not to be bitten by
mosquitoes,
Applying insect repellent is the way most people
protect themselves against getting bites. But it is
not the only way to guard against mosquitoes;
wearing long-sleeved clothing, using mosquito
nets while sleeping and staying in mosquito-free
rooms are good ways to prevent mosquito bites.
Others include insecticide sprays and burning
repellent oils. You should decide for yourselves on
one or a combination of these to avoid the risks.


Tourists Who Drink and Drive:
The Result Can Be Expensive!


endarmes in Saint Barth
collected 4,358 Euros in
fines from tourists during the
first two weeks of January!
This sum was primarily the
result of two fines of 2,000
Euros given to two foreign
tourists found behind the
wheel with a level of alcohol
higher than 2 grams per liter
of blood; much higher than
the authorized limit of 0.5


grams in France. "We apply
the law as it is written con-
cerning foreigners. That
means they have to pay the
fine immediately where it is
given. The fines for DUI are
set by the French government
and vary from 1,125 to 4500
Euros," explains lieutenant
Cadario. Lack of a seat belt
or use of a cell phone results
in a fine of 90 Euros.


Marine Park Resumes Management

of Fort Karl


Last Friday, an annual
meeting was held in
Saint Martin for the
Council of French Shorelines
in the Americas, whose presi-
dent is on the board of direc-
tors of the Littoral Conser-
vancy, a public organization
whose goal is to acquire and
protect natural landscapes,
and the coastlines of lakes
and seas.
The next day, 40 of the dele-
gates came to Saint Barthele-
my to visit the outstanding
sites on the island, before par-
ticipating in the signature of a
partnership agreement for the
management of Fort Karl.
The management of this site,


which was acquired by the
Littoral Conservancy in Octo-
ber 2007, has now been
assigned to the Collectivity,
which in turn assigned it to
the Marine Park of Saint
Barthelemy.
Located above College
Mireille Choisy in Gustavia,
the fort-built during the
Swedish period in Saint
Barth's history- is accessi-
ble via a small rocky path. It
is one of three forts that once
protected Gustavia, along
with Fort Gustav and Fort
Octave. Its acquisition by the
conservancy means that its
historic importance and natu-
ral beauty will be maintained.

REFLECTIONS

ON THE SAINT BARTH MUSIC FESTIVAL


First things first: a big
apology to Alex
Klein. I know full
well he is one of the best
oboe players in the world,
not to mention an accom-
plished conductor, but last
week when I was writing
about the 25th anniversary
of the music festival, I was
thinking about the bass
oboe he played and some-
how wrote bassoon once,
and bass oboe once. I heard
he joked he'd start to learn
the bassoon right away, but
whatever he was playing it
was an extraordinary solo,
and a prime example of
what's so great about this
little festival. Where else do
you get to see so many top
soloists playing in an
orchestra, and sometimes in
an opera orchestra, to boot?
Speaking of which, this
year's opera evening featur-
ing Madame Butterfly was
quite an experience. As the
sounds of Puccini filled the
Catholic Church in Lorient,
it was great to see some of
our local singers up there
with the pros (hats off to
Eric Houchant especially).
But then came Madame
Butterfly. And let me tell
you, if you weren't there to
hear her sing, you'd never
believe your ears: Latonia


David Everson and James Tha

4


Moore, an American sopra-
no, was one of the best But-
terfly's I've ever heard. Her
voice, her dramatic pres-
ence, Wow! She won the
hearts of the Saint Barth
audience and we can only
hope she'll be back next
year in another of her stellar
roles, perhaps Mimi in La
Boheme. Another highlight
of the festival was the Miro
Quartet. One thing I loved
was watching the four musi-
cians from the Miro playing
in the festival orchestra,
then playing the closing
night concert on Monday,


firo String Quartet: (left to right) Joshua Gindele,
Sandy Yamamoto, Daniel Ching, John Largess


Members of the festival committee: Ingrid Lehner,
Liz Ghibaudo, Laurent Cl6quin, Corinne Hardelay,
and Lydie Berry
January 19, with works by premiered in 2007 in
Charles Ives and Antonin Carmel, CA. The piece
Dvorak, as well as a piece deals with various images of
written for them by a friend: America (a country we hope
Credo for String Quartet by is now off to a new begin-
Kevin Puts, which they had ning....). If there is a com-
plaint about the festival, I
think it has nothing to do
with the outstanding quality
of the musicians or the pro-
gramming. But the fact that
over the 25 years of the fes-
tival, there has not been a
local audience built up to
help fill the seats. If free
tickets had been given to the
island's students for the past
25 years, surely some of
'U them would have become
tcher on French horn. amateurs of classical music


or jazz. They could no
longer use the excuse that
there is no tradition of this
kind of music in Saint Barth.
Where are the school teach-
ers (other than music teacher
Gatien Vilain, who attended
every concert, even bringing
his 80+ year-old mother
along)? Where are the violin
and piano students? True, on
an island with no high
school and no university,
there is a large segment of
the potential audience miss-
ing. But it's a shame you
can count the locals on one
hand, or maybe two.... But
all in all, from John Ellis
and his fantastic brand of
New Orleans inspired jazz
opening the festival to the
Miro Quartet bringing down
the final curtain, it was once
again a wonderful event,
and a big bravo has to go to
Frances Debroff for her
stamina over the past 25
years. Those who do not
take the time to come, just
don't know what they are
missing!

People Watch

Susanna and Nils


In 1998 we chartered
w a bareboat and
sailed from Mar-
tinique to Saint Barth,"
recalls Swede Nils Pass-
burg, who with his wife,
Susanna Freer Passburg,
who is half-English, half-
Swedish, owns the
Swedish Design Center in
Saint Barth. "Olle Nyman,
a Swedish honorary citizen
of Saint Barth had told us
about the island and first
planted the seeds of
curiosity about it." Nyman
had been the head of infor-
mation at Scandinavian
Airlines (SAS) where
Susanna and Nils were
both working when they
met. "We arrived the same
night as Jimmy Buffett
was playing on the dock
for the 50th anniversary of


the Select and the port was
simply heaving," says
Nils. They loved the island
and kept coming back,
even naming their daugh-
ter Salinne, after their
favorite beach. When
Salinne, who is now five-
and-a-half, announced she
needed to live by the sea,
Nils and Susanna returned
to the island once again
and began to look into set-
ting up a business. They
had been in London for
eight years and Sweden
for 18 years before that,
and ready for a change.
They are both interested in
contemporary design: "We
were often among the first
clients for young Swedish
designers," says Susanna.
"We thought why not cre-
ate a shop in Saint Barth to


Passburg
handle their work. We
made a list of all the
designers we wanted to
represent and all except
one agreed." As Susanna
points out, "We look for
work that is unique, time-
less, and inspired," and
these attributes can be
seen in the wonderful
objects that fill the store,
from modern Swedish
glassware and silver to
jewelry, books, and occa-
sional furniture. "Even
with new designs, you can
tell if they will become
classics," says Nils,
emphasizing that the work
they show is not overly
trendy. Susanna adds: "I
hate shopping, but I love
buying beautiful things I
really like. You buy some-
thing and you become
friends with it. So for the
store we want to offer
things people can buy and
take home, or offer as
gifts." A list of the design-
ers they show can be
found on their website at
www. swedishdesigncen-
tre.com, and Susanna
notes that new designers


now come to them, asking
to be included: a mark of
their success. "The objects
all have to work together,
like people at a dinner par-
ty," adds Susanna. So are
they in Saint Barth to stay:
"Yes," says Susanna, but
being practical, Nils adds
that Salinne's schooling
will be a factor in their
future plans. In terms of
goals for the design center,
Susanna and Nils hope
that more of the designers
can come to the island to
show their work, such as
Sebastian Schildt, who is
coming back for the sec-
ond time in 18 months,
and be inspired by the
island as well. E-., c
object has a story," says
Susanna. "About the inspi-
ration of the artist or how
it was made. Everything
that is special has a story."
That is especially true of
Susanna and Nils, two spe-
cial people whose lives
have definitely been
inspired by Saint Barth.

All in the Fam


village Saint Jean
(villagestjeanhotel.com) is a
family affair: the hotel is
run by brother and sister Catherine
and Bertrand Charneau, whose
father built the hotel a few decades
ago. The rooms and bungalows,
along with a house called Villa
Iguana, need to be updated to stay
fresh, and this year, the villa as well
as one of the bungalows were
redesigned with style! The two-bed-
room Villa Iguana is located on the
hillside behind the hotel, looking
out toward Saint Jean bay and the
airport. Catherine Chameau, a great
aficionado of contemporary art and


design, turned to French interior
architect Stephane Caubel, who has a
practice in Saint Barth, to add a con-
temporary sheen to the villa. "Cather-
ine wanted to keep the same terra-
cotta tiles, and mix the new with the
traditional Creole environment,"
notes Caubel, who orchestrated his
color scheme to mesh with the floors.
Pale blue walls in the living room and

kitchen, punctuat-
ed by pure red
doors that open to
reveal the ochre
stonewall behind
S. or the sea in front.
The focus of the
S living room is two
S modem sofas that
were custom
designed by
Marielle Dela-
porte, an interior
designer based in
Gustavia. The sofas, which are proto-
types built by Gaylor Dessome in
Saint Barth, feature gray fabric on a
white frame. The frame serves as flat
arms for the sofas, as well as back
(the sofa in the center of the room has
a wider back panel, which could be
used to display objects or books).
Two white wire chairs with bright red
cushions accompany the sofas.


Advertorial
ily
Caubel has also painted the inside of
a cabinet for the flat-screen TV, and
the underside of the white dining
table on the terrace as surprise bursts
of red, which is also echoed in the
bright stripes on the chaise lounge
and matching chairs by the pool. "It is
not too sophisticated," he says. "Sim-
ple, yet colorful."
Redesigned by Bertrand Charneau,
the Jacuzzi Suite now has a totally
new look. The overall feeling is Zen,
from the pale white floors to the min-
imalist, yet stylish, pale wooden fur-
niture in the kitchen and bedroom.
The living area has a hot-lime-green
plush sofa bed, and each area of the
suite can be closed off with sliding
doors for privacy. But the true piece
de resistance in the suite is the show-
er room, designed with the look of a
Scandinavian sauna, with wooden
and glass walls, a low wooden bench,
recessed lighting, and an oversized
round showerhead under a glass sky-
light. Marielle Delaporte worked with
Bertrand on the colors for the suite,
yet the green in the living room is the
brightest tone in the palette; the bed-
spread and lampshades (which tilt for
extra light while reading) are white.
Custom-fitted wooden closets with
slatted doors came from Deco Eva-
sion in Gustavia. There is an open,
airy feeling to the suite, which has
been completely transformed. And as
required by code, the suite is now
handicapped accessible, yet that
accessibility is cleverly concealed in
the design.

2 2S S t tB B a a r r t t h h W W e e e e k k l l y y n n ¡ ¡ 1 1 6 6 5 5 Last Friday, an annual meeting was held in Saint Martin for the Council of French Shorelines in the Americas, whose president is on the board of directors of the Littoral Conservancy, a public organization whose goal is to acquire and protect natural landscapes, and the coastlines of lakes and seas. The next day, 40 of the delegates came to Saint BarthŽlemy to visit the outstanding sites on the island, before participating in the signature of a partnership agreement for the management of Fort Karl. The management of this site, which was acquired by the Littoral Conservancy in October 2007, has now been assigned to the Collectivity, which in turn assigned it to the Marine Park of Saint BarthŽlemy. Located above College Mireille Choisy in Gustavia, the fortÑbuilt during the Swedish period in Saint Barth's historyÑ is accessible via a small rocky path. It is one of three forts that once protected Gustavia, along with Fort Gustav and Fort Octave. Its acquisition by the conservancy means that its historic importance and natural beauty will be maintained.Dengue: 42 New Cases In One WeekThere were 42 new cases of dengue fever recorded in Saint Barth during the second week of January, marking a new flare up of the disease. Two people were hospitalized, bringing to 14 the number of cases treated at the hospital since October, when the recent bout of the disease began, with a total of 375 cases to date. Dengue fever, one of the most common mosquitoborne viral diseases in the world, is an illness caused by infection from a virus transmitted by the Aedes mosquito. It is characterized by the sudden onset of high fever, (which can last up to 7 days or more), often accompanied by one or more of the following symptoms: intense headache, back ache, body aches, joint pains, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting and the development of skin rashes. The most severe form is known as hemorrhagic fever (which includes a tendency to bruise easily or other types of skin hemorrhages, bleeding nose or gums, and possibly internal bleeding). How to avoid the disease? In addition to general spraying against mosquitoes by the Collectivity, as well as hotels and rental villas, guests and residents should make sure not to be bitten by mosquitoes, Applying insect repellent is the way most people protect themselves against getting bites. But it is not the only way to guard against mosquitoes; wearing long-sleeved clothing, using mosquito nets while sleeping and staying in mosquito-free rooms are good ways to prevent mosquito bites. Others include insecticide sprays and burning repellent oils. You should decide for yourselves on one or a combination of these to avoid the risks.Marine Park Resumes Management of Fort Karl Gendarmes in Saint Barth collected 4,358 Euros in fines from tourists during the first two weeks of January! This sum was primarily the result of two fines of 2,000 Euros given to two foreign tourists found behind the wheel with a level of alcohol higher than 2 grams per liter of blood; much higher than the authorized limit of 0.5 grams in France. "We apply the law as it is written concerning foreigners. That means they have to pay the fine immediately where it is given. The fines for DUI are set by the French government and vary from 1,125 to 4500 Euros," explains lieutenant Cadario. Lack of a seat belt or use of a cell phone results in a fine of 90 Euros. Tourists Who Drink and Drive: The Result Can Be Expensive!

4 4S S t tB B a a r r t t h h W W e e e e k k l l y y n n ¡ ¡ 1 1 6 6 5 5 First things first: a big apology to Alex Klein. I know full well he is one of the best oboe players in the world, not to mention an accomplished conductor, but last week when I was writing about the 25th anniversary of the music festival, I was thinking about the bass oboe he played and somehow wrote bassoon once, and bass oboe once. I heard he joked he'd start to learn the bassoon right away, but whatever he was playing it was an extraordinary solo, and a prime example of what's so great about this little festival. Where else do you get to see so many top soloists playing in an orchestra, and sometimes in an opera orchestra, to boot? Speaking of which, this year's opera evening featuring Madame Butterfly was quite an experience. As the sounds of Puccini filled the Catholic Church in Lorient, it was great to see some of our local singers up there with the pros (hats off to Eric Houchant especially). But then came Madame Butterfly. And let me tell you, if you weren't there to hear her sing, you'd never believe your ears: Latonia Moore, an American soprano, was one of the best Butterfly's I've ever heard. Her voice, her dramatic presence, Wow! She won the hearts of the Saint Barth audience and we can only hope she'll be back next year in another of her stellar roles, perhaps Mimi in La Boheme. Another highlight of the festival was the Miro Quartet. One thing I loved was watching the four musicians from the Miro playing in the festival orchestra, then playing the closing night concert on Monday, January 19, with works by Charles Ives and Antonin Dvorak, as well as a piece written for them by a friend: Credo for String Quartet by Kevin Puts, which they had premiered in 2007 in Carmel, CA. The piece deals with various images of America (a country we hope is now off to a new beginningÉ.). If there is a complaint about the festival, I think it has nothing to do with the outstanding quality of the musicians or the programming. But the fact that over the 25 years of the festival, there has not been a local audience built up to help fill the seats. If free tickets had been given to the island's students for the past 25 years, surely some of them would have become amateurs of classical music or jazz. They could no longer use the excuse that there is no tradition of this kind of music in Saint Barth. Where are the school teachers (other than music teacher Gatien Vilain, who attended every concert, even bringing his 80+ year-old mother along)? Where are the violin and piano students? True, on an island with no high school and no university, there is a large segment of the potential audience missing. But it's a shame you can count the locals on one hand, or maybe twoÉ. But all in all, from John Ellis and his fantastic brand of New Orleans inspired jazz opening the festival to the Miro Quartet bringing down the final curtain, it was once again a wonderful event, and a big bravo has to go to Frances Debroff for her stamina over the past 25 years. Those who do not take the time to come, just don't know what they are missing!Ellen Lampert GrŽaux Photos : Rosemond GrŽauxREFLECTIONS ON THE SAINTBARTH MUSIC FESTIVAL Miro String Quartet: (left to right) Joshua Gindele, Sandy Yamamoto, Daniel Ching, John Largess Members of the festival committee: Ingrid Lehner, Liz Ghibaudo, Laurent ClŽquin, Corinne Hardelay, and Lydie Berry David Everson and James Thatcher on French horn.

S S t tB B a a r r t t h h W W e e e e k k l l y y n n ¡ ¡ 1 1 6 6 5 55 5 Since Monday, January 19, "Restaurant Invitations" are available in 27 participating restaurants in Saint Barth. This new system of meal vouchers, each worth 20 Euros, was put into place by the Restaurant Association of Saint BarthŽlemy (ARSB), under the aegis of its president, Didier Bensa. The vouchers respond to a need voiced by various groups on the island, including those in administrative, cultural, and economic sectors, who are looking for a better way to invite people for meals. "We have not invented anything new," explains Bensa. "We have simply taken the French concept of "Restaurant Tickets," which allows business, and organizers of cultural events who can give vouchers to their technicians and actors, for example, as well as government offices who can prepay for people who are working on the island." For businesses, it is also a nice way to offer a perk to employees or clients. But the "Restaurant Invitations" are not just limited to professionals: individuals can purchase them as well wherever they are sold. The vouchers are presented to the participating restaurants and simply deducted from the total bill. Stickers on the doors of the 27 restaurants indicate their participation in the program. Alist can be found at www.RestaurantsDeStBarth.com or www.RestaurantsOfStBarth.com, complete with photos, hours and telephone numbers for reservations. The Territorial Tourism Committee of Saint BarthŽlemy funded the launching of this project.

6 6S S t tB B a a r r t t h h W W e e e e k k l l y y n n ¡ ¡ 1 1 6 6 5 5 "In 1998 we chartered a bareboat and sailed from Martinique to Saint Barth," recalls Swede Nils Passburg, who with his wife, Susanna Freer Passburg, who is half-English, halfSwedish, owns the Swedish Design Center in Saint Barth. "Olle Nyman, a Swedish honorary citizen of Saint Barth had told us about the island and first planted the seeds of curiosity about it." Nyman had been the head of information at Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) where Susanna and Nils were both working when they met. "We arrived the same night as Jimmy Buffett was playing on the dock for the 50th anniversary of the Select and the port was simply heaving," says Nils. They loved the island and kept coming back, even naming their daughter Salinne, after their favorite beach. When Salinne, who is now fiveand-a-half, announced she needed to live by the sea, Nils and Susanna returned to the island once again and began to look into setting up a business. They had been in London for eight years and Sweden for 18 years before that, and ready for a change. They are both interested in contemporary design: "We were often among the first clients for young Swedish designers," says Susanna. "We thought why not create a shop in Saint Barth to handle their work. We made a list of all the designers we wanted to represent and all except one agreed." As Susanna points out, "We look for work that is unique, timeless, and inspired," and these attributes can be seen in the wonderful objects that fill the store, from modern Swedish glassware and silver to jewelry, books, and occasional furniture. "Even with new designs, you can tell if they will become classics," says Nils, emphasizing that the work they show is not overly trendy. Susanna adds: "I hate shopping, but I love buying beautiful things I really like. You buy something and you become friends with it. So for the store we want to offer things people can buy and take home, or offer as gifts." Alist of the designers they show can be found on their website at www.swedishdesigncentre.com, and Susanna notes that new designers now come to them, asking to be included: a mark of their success. "The objects all have to work together, like people at a dinner party," adds Susanna. So are they in Saint Barth to stay: "Yes," says Susanna, but being practical, Nils adds that Salinne's schooling will be a factor in their future plans. In terms of goals for the design center, Susanna and Nils hope that more of the designers can come to the island to show their work, such as Sebastian Schildt, who is coming back for the second time in 18 months, and be inspired by the island as well. "Every object has a story," says Susanna. "About the inspiration of the artist or how it was made. Everything that is special has a story." That is especially true of Susanna and Nils, two special people whose lives have definitely been inspired by Saint Barth. by Ellen Lampert GrŽaux Photo Rosemond GrŽauxPeople W atch Susanna and Nils Passburg

8 8S S t tB B a a r r t t h h W W e e e e k k l l y y n n ¡ ¡ 1 1 6 6 5 5Village Saint Jean (villagestjeanhotel.com) is a family affair: the hotel is run by brother and sister Catherine and Bertrand Charneau, whose father built the hotel a few decades ago. The rooms and bungalows, along with a house called Villa Iguana, need to be updated to stay fresh, and this year, the villa as well as one of the bungalows were redesigned with style! The two-bedroom Villa Iguana is located on the hillside behind the hotel, looking out toward Saint Jean bay and the airport. Catherine Charneau, a great aficionado of contemporary art and design, turned to French interior architect Stephane Caubel, who has a practice in Saint Barth, to add a contemporary sheen to the villa. "Catherine wanted to keep the same terracotta tiles, and mix the new with the traditional Creole environment," notes Caubel, who orchestrated his color scheme to mesh with the floors. Pale blue walls in the living room and kitchen, punctuated by pure red doors that open to reveal the ochre stonewall behind or the sea in front. The focus of the living room is two modern sofas that were custom designed by Marielle Delaporte, an interior designer based in Gustavia. The sofas, which are prototypes built by Gaylor Dessome in Saint Barth, feature gray fabric on a white frame. The frame serves as flat arms for the sofas, as well as back (the sofa in the center of the room has a wider back panel, which could be used to display objects or books). Two white wire chairs with bright red cushions accompany the sofas. Caubel has also painted the inside of a cabinet for the flat-screen TV, and the underside of the white dining table on the terrace as surprise bursts of red, which is also echoed in the bright stripes on the chaise lounge and matching chairs by the pool. "It is not too sophisticated," he says. "Simple, yet colorful." Redesigned by Bertrand Charneau, the Jacuzzi Suite now has a totally new look. The overall feeling is Zen, from the pale white floors to the minimalist, yet stylish, pale wooden furniture in the kitchen and bedroom. The living area has a hot-lime-green plush sofa bed, and each area of the suite can be closed off with sliding doors for privacy. But the true piece de resistance in the suite is the shower room, designed with the look of a Scandinavian sauna, with wooden and glass walls, a low wooden bench, recessed lighting, and an oversized round showerhead under a glass skylight. Marielle Delaporte worked with Bertrand on the colors for the suite, yet the green in the living room is the brightest tone in the palette; the bedspread and lampshades (which tilt for extra light while reading) are white. Custom-fitted wooden closets with slatted doors came from Deco Evasion in Gustavia. There is an open, airy feeling to the suite, which has been completely transformed. And as required by code, the suite is now handicapped accessible, yet that accessibility is cleverly concealed in the design.
