Steve Simon and Jazz Islanders Return to St. John
By Lynda Lohr — March 26, 2013

Steve Simon and the Jazz Islanders return Sunday for a free one-time performance at St. John’s Beach Bar. It runs from 4 to 7:30 p.m.

“I’m so excited about coming back to St. John. I feel like a kid at Christmas,” Simon said.

Simon moved off-island more than four years ago and is now living in Charleston, S.C.

For the concert, he’s bringing together the Jazz Islanders who frequently played with him at the Beach Bar and other locations.

“It’s going to be a party, a reunion,” he said.

In addition to Simon on clarinet, the musicians include Joe Ramsay on sax, Vince Wallace Jr. and Les Burnside on bass, Andrew Cameron on drums, Michael Banzhaf on flute, Louis Taylor on keyboard, and Patrick Lockett on harmonica.

“Plus anybody else who shows up. They’ve always been jam sessions,” he said, referring to such folks as surprise guest artists.

As for his popular Blues Festival, held for several years in Coral Bay, Simon said that it’s not feasible to organize an event of that magnitude when he’s no longer living on St. John.

However, he said, he continues to produce blues concerts for members of the U.S. military with a Bluzapalooza scheduled in October at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md.

“It will be the biggest blues event at a military facility in the United States ever,” he said.

Snorkeling 101

 

Snorkel Mask
Snorkeling is easy to learn and requires only three pieces of relatively inexpensive equipment: mask, fins and snorkel. The quality of this equipment, however, will be instrumental to your enjoyment of the sport. Today, we will talk about the snorkel mask.

The mask is the most important piece of snorkeling equipment. Our eyes are designed to function in air and the mask provides an airspace allowing our eyes to focus and see clearly through the water.

Choosing your mask
You should always buy your own mask. Rental equipment or borrowed gear may not provide a prefect fit. When your mask fits properly, it will not only be comfortable, but will be able to provide that all-important watertight seal. This means no leaks at all, however tiny. (Snorkeling with an uncomfortable or leaky mask can make snorkeling a miserable experience.)

To check if a mask fits and is watertight, tilt your head up and place it on your face without the strap. It should sit snugly with no spaces. Breathe in through your nose and lower your head. The mask should stick to your face and stay there without you holding on to it. Be sure there is no air leakage.

Now put on the strap and adjust it tight enough that it holds the mask in place, but no tighter than that. (A common mistake among beginning snorkelers is to over tighten the strap; something that causes, rather than prevents, leaks.) Make sure that your hair is not caught in the mask. Attach the snorkel and put it in your mouth. Inhale through your nose and check once more for any air leaks.

Make sure the nosepiece fits comfortably around your nose without touching it. The nosepiece should have finger pockets so you can easily close off the nasal air passage. This is important if you intend to go below the surface or free dive.

In the old days, masks were made out of black rubber. Nowadays, the best masks are made with clear, surgical-grade silicone, which is soft, flexible and hypoallergenic. Watch out for bargain specials; masks made out of clear PVC. This material looks like silicone, but is much harder and not as flexible. PVC masks are often uncomfortable and may leak.

If you have a mustache, the only mask for you will be the high-grade silicone variety. It’s also a good idea to apply a small amount of a petroleum jelly product like Vaseline to your mustache.

Masks come in many styles, with single, double and side lens options. The important thing is that the lens or lenses be made of tempered safety glass, which will be scratch-resistant and will not shatter upon impact. Always emphasize safety, a comfortable fit and water tightness, after that whatever style or color suits you best will be fine.

Corrective lenses
A rule of thumb for SCUBA divers is, “if you need glasses to drive, you need glasses to dive.” For snorkelers it is not as critical, but your enjoyment of the underwater world will certainly be enhanced if you can see it clearly. If you need glasses, check to see if your mask is corrective lens adaptable. Have your personal prescription installed in your mask, which will be much better than buying a mask with a ready-made corrective lens.

Things look about 25% closer when looking at them underwater. So if you just need reading glasses, you may not need corrective lenses. The magnifying effect of the mask underwater should also be taken into account when judging distances while snorkeling. Everything looks closer than it actually is.

Preparing a new mask
When you first buy a mask you will need to clean it to remove the oily film that is applied at the factory to protect the lens during shipping. Use a commercial mask cleaner and not a household cleaner, the remnants of which could get in your eyes when the mask gets wet.

Defogging your mask
As much as a leaky mask is annoying and detracts from your snorkeling enjoyment, so is a mask that keeps fogging up. The standard defogging agent is plain old spit, but today several commercial defogging agents are readily available at dive shops.

Spit on the mask lens or apply a few drops of the defogging liquid and rub it around. Rinse your mask with water. (Seawater will be fine.)
Put the mask on and begin snorkeling right away. If you wait too long, or walk around on land with your mask on, it will probably fog up, even with the defogger applied.

Getting water out of your mask
Sometimes even the best fitting masks can fill with water. If this happens to you, the easiest way to clear the mask is to lift your head out of the water and pull the bottom of the mask away from your face allowing the water to drain out. Replace your mask and continue snorkeling.

Mask care
When you return from your snorkel adventure, rinse your mask with fresh water and let it dry in the shade. Store it in a dry place, preferably in a protective box that will also keep it safe from damage when you travel.

Development on St. John – A 1937 Perspective

Cinnamon Bay Trail Overlook
View from the Cinnamon Bay Trail Overlook

Development

“Several new roads were being cut up the hillsides and Agnes (Sewer) told us that Paul (Boulon) was beginning to erect a few cottages (at Trunk Bay) to rent to winter visitors; we knew he had the plan in mind but, at last, he was putting it into action…. Tourists were coming. Nice tourists, probably… but to our way of thinking, even five more white people on the north shore would destroy that splendid something that had made St. John a paradise and given us the two happiest years of our lives. The coming exploitation was inevitable, and it would be a good thing for a batch of black people who were very close to our hearts and for the white people that came, it would be marvelous. But for us it was ruined.”

Desmond and Bet Holdbridge, Escape to the Tropics, published in 1937.

St. John History: Flat Calm Morning

Moonrise over Chocolate Hole
Moonrise over Chocolate Hole
Another full moonrise tonight at 7:58 PM AST

Flat Calm

On a morning like this one, “an enslaved worker on St. John, whose last name was Benjamin, took advantage of the coinciding opportunities presented by a perfectly calm sea and a new law abolishing slavery on the island of Tortola.

While walking by himself on the coast near Brown Bay, Mr. Benjamin noticed one of the large iron cauldrons used to boil cane juice into sugar called a “copper,” lying just off the shoreline and it gave him an idea. Using his machete, he carved a piece of driftwood into a rudimentary paddle and then using the mechanical advantage provided by convenient sturdy boards he found abandoned in the bush, he maneuvered the heavy copper into the water, climbed in and started to paddle across this narrow section of the Sir Francis Drake Channel heading for Tortola and freedom…..” read entire story

Manchineel

Leinster Bay Road Manchineel Sign
Manchineel Sign on the Leinster Bay Road

What Does a Manchineel Apple Taste Like

It’s not easy to get a taste review of the manchineel apple, especially with it’s rather ominous nickname “death apple,” but we have it here folks, brought to you as an exclusive by St. John life.

It seems a family of four visiting St. John happened to be walking down the Leinster Bay Road on their way to Waterlemon Bay, when they passed by the manchineel tree on the Leinster Bay Road. Thinking that it was a tasty genip, the dad picked an apple and offered bites to his wife and kids. Dad ate the apple, the mom and their eight-year-old kid took a bite and spit it out and their four-year-old refused the offer. Walking a few paces further, they read the big red sign pictured above.

Next, it was a trip to the clinic, along with a good share of worry and anxiety.

The result: intestinal distress for the dad and a burned mouth feeling for mom and the kid. The survival rate was 100 percent.

Interviewing the protagonists of the story, I was mainly interested in the taste of a death apple, something I was loath to find out for myself.

Here’s the review:

Dad: Sweet, but a bit tart

Mom: Like an under-ripe honeydew melon

Eight-year-old kid: Like concrete

Regatta Comes Down to Final Races
By Source staff — March 25, 2013

It was make or break time on the third and final day of racing at the 40th International Rolex Regatta, with many of the classes coming down to the final race – some to the final leg of the final race.

“After three days and six races total, it came down to the last race on the last day to determine the winner in our class,” said Rick Wesslund, the Miami sailor who pocketed a precision Rolex timepiece for his class win in CSA Racing 1 aboard his J/120, El Ocaso. “In the last race, we were in a dead heat with Lazy Dog. Sometimes we were in the lead, and other times they were. It was a real emotional roller coaster, but we just hung in there. We stayed on it and we won.”…

The Origin of Football, Basketball, Baseball and all the Other Games Played with a Ball

Today, games played with a rubber ball are such a significant part of modern culture that championship sports events are observed by more people, and with more fervor and enthusiasm, than most national holidays or religious celebrations. Ball games are taken so seriously that nations have actually gone to war over the outcome of soccer competitions.

Until the end of the fifteenth century, when Europeans first made contact with the Tainos, rubber ball games were unknown in Europe and, presumably, in the rest of the world. There was no such thing as football, soccer, basketball or baseball…. read more

Regatta: Winds Plays Hide and Seek Saturday
By Source staff — March 24, 2013

Despite winds that played hide and seek all Saturday afternoon, Michigan sailor Dalton DeVos maintained his lead in the Melges 32 class in the 40th International Rolex Regatta taking place in the waters off St. Thomas.

Saturday’s action took place on three stages. The one-design Melges 32 class started out in Great Bay, but playful winds caused the race committee to re-set marks further out in Pillsbury Sound. Races in the IC-24 and Beach Cat classes were delayed a half hour at mid-day as the wind ebbed and finally flowed in Jersey Bay. The spinnaker and non-spinnaker fleets had no trouble finding steady wind on courses set along the south coast of neighboring St. John…. read more
