T he new glass-crush-
ing machine
acquired by the --
Collectivity has been
operational for the past
two weeks. The glass is
collected once a week, in
a different neighborhood
on four different days. It is
then stocked near the
incinerator in Public
before it is manually sepa-
rated (glass and metal).
The glass is then put into a
hopper and raised to the crushing machine.
It is first broken by hammers before going
into one of three bins: one for very fine
pieces; a second for larger pieces; and the
third for "undesirable" items such as corks,
bottle caps, and labels.
This system allows for the glass to be
reused by the COM for such things as
roadbeds and construction.
Between two and 2.5 tons of glass are
crushed per day, and the machine is capable


A new year, a new need for
funds for the Saint Barth
rescue-at-sea station, or
SNSM, which has launched
its membership campaign
for 2009.
Living on an island, we
could all need their services
at some time or another: the
rescue-at-sea volunteers,
who also have need of us.
Specifically, they need our
donations and memberships,
which represent almost 50%
of their operating budget. In
2008, this budget was


ina *
of crushing one ton of glass per hour. In the
past, the glass was sent to Bordeaux by boat,
before a crusher was installed in Saint Mar-
tin, reducing the problem of transportation.
The purchase of the crusher by the Collectiv-
ity of Saint Barthelemy is part of the island's
sustainable development program, as it
reduces the production of CO2 caused by the
frequent maritime transportation, and also
avoids an oversaturation of recycled glass as
made into bottles in Saint Martin.


almost 8,000 Euros. The
SNSM hopes for a figure
equal or superior to that for
2009. These funds are used
primarily for purchasing
fuel for the rescue boat, as
well as the purchase of a
defibrillator, an oxygen kit,
and a stretcher for rescue by
helicopter.
20 Actions In 2008
The call for memberships in
2009 also allowed Ingenu
Magras, president of the
SNSM station in Saint
Barthelemy, to recap their

activities in 2008. His report
reveals that the local rescue
service was called out on 20
occasions last year, includ-
ing three times to help out
during sailing regattas, and
17 times for rescue opera-
tions. A total of 15 boats
were assisted, with 45 peo-
ple rescued; 18 of which
were in true difficulty. One
victim was Brian Quinn,
captain of the yacht, Tribal
Attraction, from which he
jumped to try and save a
dinghy that was floating
away. He was never found.

Dengue:
The
Epidemic
Continues

Like the rest of the
Caribbean, Saint
Barth occasionally
experiences an epi-
demic of dengue.
This is currently
the case. Since the
end of October,
450 people have
had this virus,
which is carried by
the aedes-aegypti
mosquito. As a
result, in addition
to general
spraying against
mosquitoes by the
Collectivity, as
well as hotels and
rental villas,
guests and resi-
dents should make
sure not to be bit-
ten 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; wea-
ring long-sleeved
clothing, using
mosquito nets
while sleeping and
staying in mos-
quito-free rooms
are good ways to
prevent mosquito
bites. Others
include insecticide
sprays and bur-
ning repellent oils.
You should decide
for yourselves on
one or a combina-
tion of these to
avoid the risks.

mer's paintings evoke the
places he travels... from the
Caribbean to Greece by
way of the South of France,
Italy, and Corsica. "We're
island people," he confirms,
referring to himself and his
partner Zoe Hazen. "We
like to see water on all four
sides."
Summer made his profes-
sional debut as a painter at
Art Basel in December
2008. "I had a great
response," he says." And it
seems as if he's been paint-
ing ever since. "I get up at
four o'clock in the morning
to paint sometimes. Once
you start a painting, it's a
commitment," he says,
explaining that he often
makes sketches of things
that capture his imagination.
"I put the sketches aside,
then paint the subject later,
remembering the feeling,"
he notes, "or the essence of
the moment."
Painting with oils, his lumi-
nous colors comprise the
use a glaze, or a mix of tur-
pentine and pigment. "The
colors are more saturated,
with a translucent, almost


I wet looking finish," he
says. His work for
Porta 34 includes sev-
eral large paintings,
several as tall as six
feet. Some of his work
I has the feeling of Cha-
c gall or Modigliani,
while others are based
on things he sees
around his house, such
as a colibri (the local
hummingbird) which
refreshes itself in the
mist as Summer
waters the garden in
the morning."
Interestingly, while
Summer has roots in
an artistic family, he
strayed to quite a different
profession as a younger
man: "I did marine salvage
in St. Thomas," he explains.
"It was dangerous work and
I eventually started worry-
ing about my life. I went to
Europe and visited all the
museums, then wanted to
start painting again. It was
something I had done when
I was young." He studied
painting as a young man,
then later studied glazing
techniques with Tom Saint
Vincent di Coio, a master of
the art in St. Thomas.
Having visited Saint Barth
every year for at least a
decade, Summer finally put
down roots on the island,
now splitting his time
between Florida, Saint
Barth, and traveling. The
contemporary decor in his
house blends with the St.
Barth-style architecture and
the fabulous views of the
ocean: a perpetual inspira-
tion for a painter who loves
the water, and has embraced
it in many of his canvases.

1$ \E6 From The Marine Park


PEAR-SHAPED BUOYS FOR
COLOMBIER AND FOURCHUE
We have a new stock of pear-shaped
buoys for the anchorages at Colombier
and Fourchue. These buoys are cer-
tainly less resistant, but are also much
less costly: 6 Euros as compared to
250 Euros! It is also preferable to have
these buoys break than have boats get
caught in difficult maneuvers that
cause damage to moorings. We will
report on the success of this new sys-
tem in six months.

FISHING PROHIBITED
IN THE MARINE PARK
A serious infraction of the no-fishing
rules took place in the bay of
Colombier on December 31, 2008.
During an excursion at sea, the staff
of the Marine Park noticed an under-
water harpoon on the back of a day-
charter catamaran, but the captain
insisted that no fishing had taken
place. They asked him to put the har-
poon away and reminded him of the
regulations. But the next day, a resi-
dent reported that underwater fishing
had indeed taken place from the
catamaran, capturing a Moray eel
and a reef fish. An agent from the
marine park caught up with the cata-
maran as it was leaving for Saint


Martin, and demanded the truth. The
owner of the charter company, who
had always been respectful of the
Marine Park, was contacted and took
a serious approach to the problem.
After apologizing to the Marine
Park, the owner severely reminded
the captain of the rules. But since the
Marine Park had not seen the infrac-
tion take place and there was no offi-
cial complaint by an eyewitness, no
legal action could be taken. The
moral of the story: if you are break-
ing the rules, you will most certainly
be seen, and if you see someone
breaking the rules, don't hesitate to
call the authorities. Finally, for cap-
tains dealing with difficult clients,
call the Marine Park and an agent
will come out to explain the situation
to the individuals.

OBSERVATION OF
A BANDED TURTLE
On December 20, 2008, a banded tur-
tle was observed in the waters of the
Saint Barthelemy Marine Park. The
visiting sea turtle had been banded in
December 2005 in the Turks &
Caicos. These turtles come to feed in
our waters and lay eggs on neighbor-
ing islands. In the same way, the sea
turtles of Saint Barth remain here to


feed and often migrate to other island
to lay their eggs. Please remember
that excessive speeds do not give the
turtles any chance at all to go back
under the water when you go too fast
in a motorboat. The law is simple:
maximum of three knots in the chan-
nel for the Port of Gustavia, and five
knots in the bays. The sites of Colom-
bier and Fourchue, as well as the port
channel, are delicate areas due to the
presence of sea grasses, which serve
as the primary food source for green
sea turtles. The turtles emerge on the
surface in order to breathe, and need
to be able to dive back under the
water when boats arrive too quickly.
We work on a daily basis to work
with residents, as well as visitors and
yacht crews.

Park or for details about the protected
zones, please stop by the Marine Park

Alain Le Chatelier

Master Of Trompe L'Oeil


rench painter Alain
Le Chatelier not only
has an incredible
sense of color, but also an
irreverent sense of humor
often seen in his work:
where else do you see self-
portraits that are baskets of
fruit and vegetables, or
confections of cakes and
whipped cream, that create
a face when turned upside
down (or is that right side
up?). Every winter since
1996, Le Chatelier has
shown his work at Les
Artisans gallery in Gus-
tavia, where this year's
show is currently taking
place. Over the years he
has developed a devoted
clientele, and has been


invited to bring his mastery
of trompe l'oeil (tricking
the eye) and large-scale
murals to a private home in
the United States.
From an octagonal room
transformed into a rose gar-
den, to a sink room that
looks like an Italian palace
with gold leaf, and an
ornate ceiling treatment in
another room, Le Chatelier
has embarked on a very
ambitious project. "I went
to visit the house and took
very precise measure-
8


ments," he explains. He
then returned to Paris
where he works and paint-
ed the various canvases;
they were eventually rolled
up and shipped to the US.
Le Chatelier followed and
painstakingly glued the
canvases to the walls and
ceilings at various times
over the past two years; a
third part of the project still
awaits him.
In the octagonal rose gar-
den, Le Chatelier created
scenes based on the four
seasons, and came to the
job site armed with a box
full of extra roses he had
painted to add finishing
touches to the murals once
they were installed. He also


Wedgewood, and all
trompe l'oeil," he says. It's
hard to believe the layers of
molding and ornate "3D
plaster work" is all the
result of brushstrokes on
canvas.
Le Chatelier is more than
just a painter: he loves to
do decor for the theatre and
the cinema, as well as
large-scale murals, having
spent six months in Italy as
young man, learning old-
fashioned fresco tech-
niques. "A painter usually
1 .%R
W it


painted a series of birds,
and worked with the client
to place them where
desired (the clients' dog
even figures in the
design). For the sink room
ceiling, Le Chatelier and
his assistants worked with
delicate gold leaf ("There
was gold dust every-
where," he says), which is
painting on with white,
creating a look that echoes
Renaissance Italy. Another
ceiling is more classical:
"Very 18th-century Italian,


works alone," he says, not-
ing that he enjoys the
camaraderie of working
with other people on such
large-scale projects.
Many of the paintings at
Les Artisans are of Le
Chatelier's house and gar-
den located one hour out-
side of Paris. Windows let
in a cool blue winter light
while candles or the flames
of a gas range add a warm,
yellow glow. "I love to
play with light," he admits.
And look closely for visual
J jokes, or take in
the objects that
create Le Chate-
lier's environ-
ment, from a topi-
ary rabbit in the
,. garden to a vase
of purple
anemones in his
studio, or his sig-
nature cleverly
integrated into the
scene. But be sure
to look again,
there's usually
something beyond
What the eye can
see at first glance.

The Colorful Carnival of "La Pointe en Mouvement"


Each parade is animated by
traditional drums, like those
from Guadeloupe, and
played by members of the
group. The drums are main-
tained by Henri, a drummer
who keeps the goatskins in
good condition to ensure the
quality of the music, and
provide a good show for the
public that gathers to watch,
and listen.


he association, La
Pointe En Mouve-
ment, animates
weekly parades every Sun-
day afternoon from January
through Mardi Gras, bring-
ing the streets of Gustavia
alive with the music and
rhythms of Carnival.
Taking its cue from the Car-
nival in Guadeloupe, Saint
Barth has its own version of
Mardi Gras, including cele-
brations that begin at
Epiphany and end on Ash
Wednesday. The Carnival
tradition, which began cen-
turies ago such in Catholic
countries as Italy, serves as
unbridled entertainment
before the restrictions of
Lent begin. In the
Caribbean, with its former


Everybody participates by
dancing, playing music, or
singing songs from Guade-
loupe in Creole. Even chil-
dren can take part thanks to
Joel, a former member of
the group who passes on the
musical tradition to the next
generation.
The theme for Sunday,

mixture of colonials and
slaves, Carnival was
revived with African influ-
ences added to the Euro-
pean traditions. The weekly
parades held on Sunday
afternoons in Saint Barth
from January through Ash
Wednesday have this
Caribbean flavor, as the
streets of Gustavia resound
with the sound of traditional
drumming.
Each week there is a differ-
ent theme for the costumes,
many of which recur from
year to year to avoid the
expense of new outfits.
Among the popular themes,
"A Long Time Ago," and
costumes made from the
traditional madras fabric
worn in Guadeloupe.

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 7 7Dengue: The Epidemic ContinuesLike the rest of the Caribbean, Saint Barth occasionally experiences an epidemic of dengue. This is currently the case. Since the end of October, 450 people have had this virus, which is carried by the aedes-aegypti mosquito. As a result, 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. The new glass-crushing machine acquired by the Collectivity has been operational for the past two weeks. The glass is collected once a week, in a different neighborhood on four different days. It is then stocked near the incinerator in Public before it is manually separated (glass and metal). The glass is then put into a hopper and raised to the crushing machine. It is first broken by hammers before going into one of three bins: one for very fine pieces; a second for larger pieces; and the third for "undesirable" items such as corks, bottle caps, and labels. This system allows for the glass to be reused by the COM for such things as roadbeds and construction. Between two and 2.5 tons of glass are crushed per day, and the machine is capable of crushing one ton of glass per hour. In the past, the glass was sent to Bordeaux by boat, before a crusher was installed in Saint Martin, reducing the problem of transportation. The purchase of the crusher by the Collectivity of Saint BarthŽlemy is part of the island's sustainable development program, as it reduces the production of CO2 caused by the frequent maritime transportation, and also avoids an oversaturation of recycled glass as made into bottles in Saint Martin. Anew year, a new need for funds forthe Saint Barth rescue-at-sea station, or SNSM, which has launched its membership campaign for2009. Living on an island, we could all need their services at some time or another: the rescue-at-sea volunteers, who also have need of us. Specifically, they need our donations and memberships, which represent almost 50% of their operating budget. In 2008, this budget was almost 8,000 Euros. The SNSM hopes for a figure equal or superior to that for 2009. These funds are used primarily for purchasing fuel for the rescue boat, as well as the purchase of a defibrillator, an oxygen kit, and a stretcher for rescue by helicopter.20 Actions In 2008The call for memberships in 2009 also allowed IngŽnu Magras, president of the SNSM station in Saint BarthŽlemy, to recap their activities in 2008. His report reveals that the local rescue service was called out on 20 occasions last year, including three times to help out during sailing regattas, and 17 times for rescue operations. Atotal of 15 boats were assisted, with 45 people rescued; 18 of which were in true difficulty. One victim was Brian Quinn, captain of the yacht, Tribal Attraction, from which he jumped to try and save a dinghy that was floating away. He was never found.

Oil paintings with bold shimmering colors accent the home of Mitchell Summer, who is originally from Pittsburgh, PA, but has spent much of his life in the Caribbean, first in St. Thomas (in the American Virgin Islands) and now Saint Barth, where he is based on the windswept side of the island in Toiny: thus the name of his web-based gallery, Windkeeper (www.windkeeper.com). His work will be seen at Gallery Porta 34 in Gustavia through February 12, allowing his fellow islanders to drink in the richly colored scenes that are liable to trigger personal memories of Saint Barth or other island locales. This is the case as Summer's paintings evoke the places he travelsÉfrom the Caribbean to Greece by way of the South of France, Italy, and Corsica. "We're island people," he confirms, referring to himself and his partner ZoŽ Hazen. "We like to see water on all four sides." Summer made his professional debut as a painter at Art Basel in December 2008. "I had a great response," he says." And it seems as if he's been painting ever since. "I get up at four o'clock in the morning to paint sometimes. Once you start a painting, it's a commitment," he says, explaining that he often makes sketches of things that capture his imagination. "I put the sketches aside, then paint the subject later, remembering the feeling," he notes, "or the essence of the moment." Painting with oils, his luminous colors comprise the use a glaze, or a mix of turpentine and pigment. "The colors are more saturated, with a translucent, almost wet looking finish," he says. His work for Porta 34 includes several large paintings, several as tall as six feet. Some of his work has the feeling of Chagall or Modigliani, while others are based on things he sees around his house, such as a colibri (the local hummingbird) which refreshes itself in the mist as Summer waters the garden in the morning." Interestingly, while Summer has roots in an artistic family, he strayed to quite a different profession as a younger man: "I did marine salvage in St. Thomas," he explains. "It was dangerous work and I eventually started worrying about my life. I went to Europe and visited all the museums, then wanted to start painting again. It was something I had done when I was young." He studied painting as a young man, then later studied glazing techniques with Tom Saint Vincent di Coio, a master of the art in St. Thomas. Having visited Saint Barth every year for at least a decade, Summer finally put down roots on the island, now splitting his time between Florida, Saint Barth, and traveling. The contemporary dŽcor in his house blends with the St. Barth-style architecture and the fabulous views of the ocean: a perpetual inspiration for a painter who loves the water, and has embraced it in many of his canvases.

PEAR-SHAPEDBUOYSFORCOLOMBIERANDFOURCHUEWe have a new stock of pear-shaped buoys for the anchorages at Colombier and Fourchue. These buoys are certainly less resistant, but are also much less costly: 6 Euros as compared to 250 Euros! It is also preferable to have these buoys break than have boats get caught in difficult maneuvers that cause damage to moorings. We will report on the success of this new system in six months. FISHINGPROHIBITEDINTHEMARINEPARKAserious infraction of the no-fishing rules took place in the bay of Colombier on December 31, 2008. During an excursion at sea, the staff of the Marine Park noticed an underwater harpoon on the back of a daycharter catamaran, but the captain insisted that no fishing had taken place. They asked him to put the harpoon away and reminded him of the regulations. But the next day, a resident reported that underwater fishing had indeed taken place from the catamaran, capturing a Moray eel and a reef fish. An agent from the marine park caught up with the catamaran as it was leaving for Saint Martin, and demanded the truth. The owner of the charter company, who had always been respectful of the Marine Park, was contacted and took a serious approach to the problem. After apologizing to the Marine Park, the owner severely reminded the captain of the rules. But since the Marine Park had not seen the infraction take place and there was no official complaint by an eyewitness, no legal action could be taken. The moral of the story: if you are breaking the rules, you will most certainly be seen, and if you see someone breaking the rules, don't hesitate to call the authorities. Finally, for captains dealing with difficult clients, call the Marine Park and an agent will come out to explain the situation to the individuals. OBSERVATIONOFA BANDEDTURTLEOn December 20, 2008, a banded turtle was observed in the waters of the Saint BarthÂŽlemy Marine Park. The visiting sea turtle had been banded in December 2005 in the Turks & Caicos. These turtles come to feed in our waters and lay eggs on neighboring islands. In the same way, the sea turtles of Saint Barth remain here to feed and often migrate to other island to lay their eggs. Please remember that excessive speeds do not give the turtles any chance at all to go back under the water when you go too fast in a motorboat. The law is simple: maximum of three knots in the channel for the Port of Gustavia, and five knots in the bays. The sites of Colombier and Fourchue, as well as the port channel, are delicate areas due to the presence of sea grasses, which serve as the primary food source for green sea turtles. The turtles emerge on the surface in order to breathe, and need to be able to dive back under the water when boats arrive too quickly. We work on a daily basis to work with residents, as well as visitors and yacht crews. ADDITIONALINFORMATIONFor additional information regarding the current regulations for the Marine Park or for details about the protected zones, please stop by the Marine Park office on the waterfront in Gustavia, next to the tourist office.

French painter Alain Le Chatelier not only has an incredible sense of color, but also an irreverent sense of humor often seen in his work: where else do you see selfportraits that are baskets of fruit and vegetables, or confections of cakes and whipped cream, that create a face when turned upside down (or is that right side up?). Every winter since 1996, Le Chatelier has shown his work at Les Artisans gallery in Gustavia, where this year's show is currently taking place. Over the years he has developed a devoted clientele, and has been invited to bring his mastery of trompe l'oeil (tricking the eye) and large-scale murals to a private home in the United States. From an octagonal room transformed into a rose garden, to a sink room that looks like an Italian palace with gold leaf, and an ornate ceiling treatment in another room, Le Chatelier has embarked on a very ambitious project. "I went to visit the house and took very precise measurements," he explains. He then returned to Paris where he works and painted the various canvases; they were eventually rolled up and shipped to the US. Le Chatelier followed and painstakingly glued the canvases to the walls and ceilings at various times over the past two years; a third part of the project still awaits him. In the octagonal rose garden, Le Chatelier created scenes based on the four seasons, and came to the job site armed with a box full of extra roses he had painted to add finishing touches to the murals once they were installed. He also painted a series of birds, and worked with the client to place them where desired (the clients'dog even figures in the design). For the sink room ceiling, Le Chatelier and his assistants worked with delicate gold leaf ("There was gold dust everywhere," he says), which is painting on with white, creating a look that echoes Renaissance Italy. Another ceiling is more classical: "Very 18th-century Italian, Wedgewood, and all trompe l'oeil," he says. It's hard to believe the layers of molding and ornate "3D plaster work" is all the result of brushstrokes on canvas. Le Chatelier is more than just a painter: he loves to do dŽcor for the theatre and the cinema, as well as large-scale murals, having spent six months in Italy as young man, learning oldfashioned fresco techniques. "Apainter usually works alone," he says, noting that he enjoys the camaraderie of working with other people on such large-scale projects. Many of the paintings at Les Artisans are of Le Chatelier's house and garden located one hour outside of Paris. Windows let in a cool blue winter light while candles or the flames of a gas range add a warm, yellow glow. "I love to play with light," he admits. And look closely for visual jokes, or take in the objects that create Le Chatelier's environment, from a topiary rabbit in the garden to a vase of purple anemones in his studio, or his signature cleverly integrated into the scene. But be sure to look again, there's usually something beyond what the eye can see at first glance.

Taking its cue from the Carnival in Guadeloupe, Saint Barth has its own version of Mardi Gras, including celebrations that begin at Epiphany and end on Ash Wednesday. The Carnival tradition, which began centuries ago such in Catholic countries as Italy, serves as unbridled entertainment before the restrictions of Lent begin. In the Caribbean, with its former mixture of colonials and slaves, Carnival was revived with African influences added to the European traditions. The weekly parades held on Sunday afternoons in Saint Barth from January through Ash Wednesday have this Caribbean flavor, as the streets of Gustavia resound with the sound of traditional drumming. Each week there is a different theme for the costumes, many of which recur from year to year to avoid the expense of new outfits. Among the popular themes, "ALong Time Ago," and costumes made from the traditional madras fabric worn in Guadeloupe. Each parade is animated by traditional drums, like those from Guadeloupe, and played by members of the group. The drums are maintained by Henri, a drummer who keeps the goatskins in good condition to ensure the quality of the music, and provide a good show for the public that gathers to watch, and listen. Everybody participates by dancing, playing music, or singing songs from Guadeloupe in CrŽole. Even children can take part thanks to Joel, a former member of the group who passes on the musical tradition to the next generation. The theme for Sunday, February 8: Pirates! Obituary: Robert ZolendjuskiRobert Zolendjuski, an American who resided in Saint Barth for the past 15 years, passed away in San Juan, Puerto Rico, on Tuesday, February 3, 2009, at the age of 61. The cause was extensive melanoma. He is survived by his wife, Courtney Kimball: they would have been married for 30 years on August 30, 2009. They moved to Saint Barth from Maine in 1994. A memorial will be held at a later date. The Colorful Carnival of "La Pointe en Mouvement" Courtney and Robert in January 2008
