Did you miss it in New
York? Here's another
chance to see The Count of
Bouderbala, who will per-
form his half-slam, half-
stand-up show on Friday
evening in Gustavia. Per-
formed in English, for the
English-speaking residents
and guests on the island, at
the invitation of SB Artists,
the local theatre troupe in
Saint Barth.

French of Algerian parents,
and born in the suburbs of
Paris, The Count of Boud-
erbala-whose real name is
Samy Ameziane-is an
unusual guy. Before

becoming a stand-up comic
who splits his time between
Paris and New York, where
he performs in comedy
clubs, this "count" was also
once a basketball player.
He played for PSG-Leval-
lois, and on the national
Algerian team, but also as a
back-up point guard for the
Huskies at the University
of Connecticut in 2004
(winner of the men's
NCAA National Champi-
onship that year), while in
the US as a foreign
exchange student...

Returning the France, this
jack-of-all-trades (who

holds a masters in Italian
and English, as well as the
equivalent of an MBA from
UConn) and a childhood
friend of the most celebrat-
ed French slammer, Grand
Corps Malade, quickly
found himself propelled
onto the stage at the Jamel
Comedy Club (France's
best known stand-up ven-
ue). After a few months he
put on his own show, The
Count of Bouderbala, from
the Arabic for "in rags."
He translated the show into
English and returned with
it to the United States
where he performed in
clubs from Manhattan to
Brooklyn by way of
Harlem and the Bronx,
from Comedy Village to
the Broadway Comedy
Club by way of the New
York Comedy Club, from
Dave Chapelle to the Bad

Boys of Comedy, The
Count became a part of the
New York scene with his
unusual show: "As a for-
eigner you always have a
different take on things.
For me, it was that of a
Frenchy observing life in
France and America."

The result is a very con-
temporary show blending
slam and stand up, in
which the artist evokes his
incredible journey from
Saint Denis to New York
by way of UConn, and cov-
ers all aspects of current
events, taking jibes at reli-
gion, rappers, and the
American health care sys-
tem where "it is better to
cut off the left arm if the
right one is broken." A
show where "everyone is
laughed at the make us
love them a little more."

The Count of Bouderbala, Friday November 27 at 8pm,
in the theatre next to the Catholic Church in Gustavia.
Tickets: 20 Euros.

Tickets can be picked up at the theatre as of 6:45pm

Misha Heemskerk and Eduard Zanen Win

The 2009 Saint Barth Cata Cup

On Sunday, Mischa
Heemskerk and Eduard
Zanen took first place in
the second edition of the
Saint Barth Cata Cup,
which included 35 teams
this year. This Dutch duo,
who figured among the
favorites for the event,
won five of the six races
on the program over

The Saint Barth Cata Cup
began last Friday with a
race around the island,
including detours in the
bays of Saline and Gou-
verneur where the fleet was
required to pass race buoys,
much to the delight of the
spectators on land. The

competitor in the summer
Olympics, and Victor
Aponte, were leading the
race as far as the bay of St.
Jean. But Aeolus decided
their fate differently: a little
before the point of Toiny,
the team lost their wind, by
coming a little too close to
the coast.
In an ambush, Belgians
Patrick Demesmaeker, from
the Royal Beligum Sailing
Club, and Olivier Gagliani,
moved into first place and
didn't give it up before
crossing the finish line. Five
teams dropped out during
this first race, including the
local team of Jeff Ledee/
Vincent Jordil when the hal-
yard on their spinnaker
broke right after passing
Tortue, while these talented
amateurs were among the
top six boats. Another local
team, Vincent Beauvarlet
and Bruno Hock also made
quite a slash in this first race
when they capsized... in

spite of which they managed
to finish in 8th place at the
end of this race around the
If the weather conditions
were ideal for the first day
of racing, on Saturday the
wind barely passed 10
knots, increasing the time to
complete the two races on
the schedule. Due to this
lack of wind, it was neces-
sary to shorten the afternoon
race, while the morning saw
the fleet sail around a buoy
* Pointe Milou before heading
past Forchue with spin-
nakers unfurled, then back
to Saint Jean where Mischa
Heemskerk and Eduard
Zanen took first place, after
a tactical error by the Puerto
Rican team. Enrique
Figueroa Victor Aponte con-
fused a Marine Park buoy
with one of the race mark-
ers. When they realized their
mistake, the Dutchmen had
already taken off like a can-
nonball and toward their
victory. At 1:30pm, the 35
boats set out for the truncat-
ed second race, as the wind
had not improved.
Emmanuel Boulogne,
French F18 world champi-
on, and Tanguy Kervin won
the race, while the Suisse PP
Cornet had the bad luck of
spraining his knee during a
maneuver aboard his boat.
Ready for day three, yet a
little less fresh after an
evening of salsa with Puerto
Rican band San Jun Habana,
who came especially for the
event, the crews faced the
last two races of the event
on Sunday. Two last races
both won handily by Mischa
Heemskerk and Eduard
Zanen, making them the
clear winners of the 2009
Saint Barth Cata Cup.

During the Inter-ministerial
Council for Overseas Affairs
meeting on November 6 at
the Palais de l'Elysees in
Paris, French president Nico-
las Sarkozy announced an
agenda of 137 measures for
the development of France's
overseas territories. He has
said that "France will support
and accompany.... the trans-
formation of Saint Barthe-
lemy into the group of Over-
seas Countries and Territories
(PTOM)." On October 8, the
island's territorial council
voted to ask the French

to start the process for Saint
Barthelemy's European status
to evolve from an outermost
region to that of overseas
countries and territories. The
outermost regions are regions
of European Union Member
States, where the European
Union law applies. In
contrast, the Overseas Coun-
tries and Territories (OCT)
have a special relationship
with one of the Member Sta-
tes of the EU. They are not
part of the EU, and EU law
applies to them only insofar
as is necessary to implement
pertinent agreements.

The lack of clarity concerning
the success of the coming
tourist season is not necessa-
rily a sign that numbers will
be down. For Anne Dentel,
president of the island's Hotel
Association, it is more a
change in behavioral patterns
by visitors: "In the past, reser-
vations were made six
months in advance. Today,
with the development of the
Internet, reservations are
made closer and closer to the
start of vacations, perhaps
four to six weeks out. Such
late reservations are not a
trend limited to Saint Barth,
but a global evolution that
tourism professionals must
confront today," explains the
Yet Anne Dentel remains
confident: "Thanks to the fes-
tivities organized for the 60th
anniversary of Le Select, I
think we will finish the
month of November higher
than our expectations. We still
have availability for Christ-
mas, but I sincerely think we
will be full. We also have

good feelings about Presi-
dent's Day, which will allow
us to have a few good weeks
from February 13 to the end
of the month. And we should
be busy for spring break as
Does all that add up to a good
season? "I am not at all
defeatist," adds Dentel. "The
crisis that we have all endu-
red has had as some positive
consequences, such as the
realization that it is not sim-
ply a given that the clientele
will appear. The restaurant
sector suffered greatly last
year, and although it seemed
in a decline, there have been
considerable efforts made to
rebound. Coupled with the
start of a recovery of the eco-
nomy in the United States,
and the arrival of new tou-
rists, primarily Russian and
Brazilian, and in spite of the
exchange rate of the
dollar/euro, I think we can
safely say, that at worst, the
season will be the same as
last year, but it actually looks
like it will be better."

For the population of the
island, May 13, 2008 is
synonymous with immense
joy... and Miguel Danet!
Sailing on the Concarneau-
Saint Barth boat in the 9th
edition of the Transat Ag2r,
a transatlantic race from
the French port of Con-
carneau (in Brittany) to
Saint Barth, this young
Saint Barth native was the
youngest sailor in the race.
He had never before sailed

across the
Atlantic, yet his
W first attempt was
a huge success!
To begin with,
Danet and his
teammate Eric
Peron won the
prologue to the
race. And they
crossed the finish
line in third place, just
behind another island
favorite, Luc Poupon.
Since then, the 24-year old
Miguel has had but one
idea in his head: to set off
across the Atlantic again:
"Set sail again to relive the
arrival," explains the young
skipper, who will never
forget the morning of May
13, with over 100 boats
coming out to greet him,

so lucky. In the end, I fin-

the winner!

The vote was almost
unanimous (minus just
that of Karine Miot) as the
territorial council decided
on November 9 to create <
blue zone >> parking in
Gustavia. This measure
will be put into effect to
help control traffic and
parking in the center of
town, so that cars belong-
ing to people who work in
Gustavia do not take up
parking spaces all day.
The idea is simple: drivers
will be authorized to park
for free for an hour and a
half when using a parking

Suspected of various
thefts ihu.:.t breaking in
or violence, a couple liv-
ing on the island was
arrested on Wednesday,
November 18 by the gen-
darmes. The 30 year-old
woman was set free but
has to appear before the
court on January 7, 2010,
where she will be judged
for receiving stolen prop-
erty and theft. The 36
year-old man on the other
hand stood before the
attorney general in Basse
Terre on Friday morning,
November 20. To different
degrees, they were both
suspected of committing
six robberies between
August 19 and November
13, and seven additional
thefts in cars for a total of
goods estimated at
100,000 euros!
The gendarmes' suspi-
cions about the couple
began on the evening of
November 13 in a villa in

disk: 2,000 copies of the
disks were printed and
will be available through
the Collectivity as well as
car rental agencies.

defined by signage and
centralized on the streets
along the waterfront and
from the pharmacy to the
entry of Gustavia. < Blue

effect during the day, from

It is hard to figure all that
Saint Barth owes to Marius
Stakelborough, a visionary
businessman who opened
the island's first restau-
rant/bar, its first book store,
its first photo studio, and
who became Saint Barth's
leading ambassador throu-
ghout the world. He was
made a knight in the Order
of the Polar Star (a presti-
gious honor bestowed by
the Swedish government
primarily to foreign minis-
ters during state visits) by
the king of Sweden, who
has actually visited Le
Select. Marius is the "West
Indian father" of singer
Jimmy Buffett, who always
stops in to see him. A friend
to many illustrious people,
Marius Stakelborough has
never become pretentious.
His personality is reflected
in the soul of Le Select,
which makes it the place to
be, iteration after iteration,
generation after generation.

Renovation of the 'Maison des Swurs'

Approximately 40 people
attended an open house on
Sunday, November 15 at
the Maison des Soeurs (the
nuns' residence) in Lori-
ent, which is in a bad state
of disrepair. The diocese
of Gaudeloupe, which
owns the house, would
like to be able to restore it.
Guests were able to see the
renovation plans proposed
by Nicolas Lossent and
Robert Tual from Lotus,
who intend to preserve the
charm of this pretty Cre-
ole-style house built in the
1930s, but badly damaged
over time.
The renovation would
entail replacing or restor-
ing all of the wooden
beams, shutters, and win-
dows, installing new elec-
tric wiring, repairing and
reinforcing the basic struc-
ture and concrete walls
that have cracks, as well as
totally redoing the roof.
Also planned is a total ren-
ovation of the interior of
the house which compris-
es four bedrooms and two
baths on the upper floor.

The ground floor includes of the project. The church sents the purest traditional
a common living area and hopes to find the remain- style of the 1930s, and at

A special guest for the
festivities celebrating the
60th anniversary of Le
Select and its founder,
86 year-old Marius,
Stakelborough, a great
champion of their
friendship, Sweden was
honored on the weekend
of November 14, mark-
ing the 31 st anniversary
of the twin cities of Saint
Barthelemy and the
Swedish town of Pitea.
In addition to an official
ceremony at the
Swedish cemetery in
Public (which reminds
us that Saint Barth was
ruled by the Swedish
crown from 1784 to
1878 before being
returned to France), vari-
ous activities were held
on the beach and water
in Public, along with the
19th edition of the Gus-
tavialoppet. Launched
in 1991 in memory of an
endurance race that pre-
viously took place on
the island, this annual
10km race marks
Swedish-Saint Barth
friendship and attracts
runners from this Nordic
country. For the past
several years, in con-
junction with this race,
events include a 8km
walk open to all, and a
kids' competition called
the "Foulees des Ti
Mounes." Eddy Boulate,
a runner from Guade-
loupe, won the 2009
Gustavialoppet, taking
top honors for the sec-
ond year in a row. He
completed the 10km cir-
cuit in 31 minutes and
46 seconds. Three hand-
cycles, which had just
participated in the New
York Marathon, compet-
ed here as well.

S ...A minute of silence after the placing ofa
,... ..wreath at the Swedish cemetery: In the

As a prelude to the Swedish weekend, ASBAS organized
a conference on the Swedish heritage in Saint Barth led by
Arlette Magras-Patrigeon on Wednesday, November 11, ,
followed by the screening of a documentary about the Vasa,
a 17th-century Swedish warship.

Marima Nyman, an active
member of the Sail Skapet of
Stockholm, came to celebrate
the 31st anniversary of the twin
cities of Saint Barth and Pitea.

Eddy Boulate was the winner
of the 2009 Gustavialoppet,
taking top honors for the
second year in a row.

There's no math involved. The grid has numbers, but
nothing has to add up to anything else. You solve the
puzzle with reasoning and logic. It's fun. It's chal-
lenging. It's addictive! "Fill in the grid so that every
row, every column, and every 3x3 box contains the
digits 1 through 9."That's all there is to it.
