School Uniforms - Why? by Charla Connor: "Ok, I searched for a plausible reason for school uniforms and I couldn’t come up with any. I then asked a few students and we came to the same conclusion. A Uniform prevents discrimination amongst students!"

The Story of Island Harbour by Golda Lake: "Island Harbour, located on the eastern side of Anguilla has a history that is unique to the island. However according to Mr. Colville Petty, OBE, much of it is second hand data and no one can be positive."

London Times on Anguilla

Bob Bermann writes that the Dec 4/5 issue had a long article on Anguilla. Here is an excerpt:

Anguilla must have been a serious disappointment to its first European visitors. Forty minutes north of Antigua, at the northern end of the Leeward Islands, it is low-lying and barren, with no natural resources but salt. Its plantation owners threw in the towel long ago, leaving to their slaves their land, their names and 33 powder-soft beaches lapped by waters the colour of blue curaçao. Bet they’re kicking themselves now.

Anguilla is just 16 miles wide by three across (Columbus named it “the Eel”), and tourism arrived late here. Consequently, the island is joyful and crime-free, and radiates unspoilt innocence. Tourists are still seen as visitors, and happy adventures are born of chance meetings with locals. It has no designer shopping malls and just a couple of nightclubs. The one-horse capital, The Valley, makes Bridgetown, on Barbados, seem positively Florentine — but then if you wanted culture, you’d go to Florence.

Sparingly developed, hard to reach and pricey, this offshore haven promises to repay your investment handsomely, and here’s the secret of a success-ful stay: find the beach that suits your soul, the accommo-dation that suits your pocket, and stay put.

Bob the bait fisherman,sprawled in the shade on Shoal Bay West, on the off chance that pilchards would pass by, put it best. “Sometimes,” he yawned, “it’s nice to have nothing to do but look at the ocean.”

Newspaper Article About Anguilla

The Washington Times has a long travel article entitled "A Lovely Little Island" about going to Anguilla: Anguilla's delights are that rare commodity that is measured inversely. Three traffic lights at last count, no fast-food restaurant, no long stretch of beaches gobbled up by sprawling resorts, no Gucci, no Applebee's. Anguilla is the antithesis of St. Martin, a few miles across the channel.

Thanks to Steve and Dan and Jane for sending this tip.

Altamer Weather Station

Altamer now has an operational weather station, with live weather viewer, webcam views (live and static), 24 hour data on temperature, rainfall, pressure, humidity, heat index (the heat index is like the wind chill but the opposite, a combination of temp and humidity which gives the "feels like" temp), sunset times, and phase of the moon. The equipment is highly accurate, state-of-the-art, and has been tested for accuracy. They will continue to add functionality over time (tidal and sea information as well as historical data for the past 10 to 20 years and query screens, i.e. what time is sunset on April 24th 2005) so any ideas are welcome.

How to Apply for an Alien Landholding License on Anguilla

By Lisa Bass, or Summit Chambers, Anguilla

Anguilla has become one of the world’s premiere tourism destinations. The character and stability of the island has made it attractive for those persons interested in making a solid real estate investment in a place where they could comfortably build a holiday or retirement haven. Because of its attractiveness to persons of wide-ranging financial capabilities, Anguilla’s tourism landscape boasts a colourful menu of small picturesque villas as well as ultra-sophisticated resorts for the more discriminating traveller.

Due to the quality of accommodation available, the superior guest services and the beautiful beaches, there has been a run on owning real estate on the island. After selecting one’s property of choice and entering into a binding agreement with its’ registered proprietor, applying for an Alien Land Holding Licence is a necessary step for non-Anguillians who wish to own property in Anguilla. A summary of the process involved in applying for an Alien Land Holding Licence follows.

Procedure:

RESIDENTIAL/COMMERCIAL

If a prospective purchaser wishes to acquire a plot of land in order to build residential premises or to develop a tourism project, it is necessary to get outline planning approval from the Physical Planning Department. After the drawings have been submitted to the Planning Department, the confirmation process may take about 3 weeks.

Whilst one is awaiting the outline planning approval, the Alien Land Holding Licence application form should be completed in duplicate and signed by the would-be purchasers. The supporting documents to the application should also be compiled, they include:

· A Bank reference letter
· A Police reference letter from all the territories of residence over the past 7 years
· Personal reference letter from a public figure who has known the purchaser for at least 7 years.
· Copy of passport details page
· Tax clearance forms from the Government of Anguilla for both the Vendor and Purchaser
· 4 Passport sized pictures of the purchaser

When outline planning approval has been granted, the application and supporting documents along with the Planning approval decision notice and a location map of the property may be submitted to the Lands and Survey Department. An application fee of EC$1000 is also payable to the Government of Anguilla at the time of submission of the documents.
click to enlarge
If the Licence is granted, stamp duty on the Licence (12.5% of the purchase price) and transfer tax (5% of the purchase price) are made payable to the Government of Anguilla. In some circumstances the stamp duty may be waived. However, the waiver is made under very specific circumstances to Caribbean Nationals who have been living on Anguilla for over seven (7) years. A deposit of 10% of the purchase price is also made payable to the Government of Anguilla if the property being purchased is a vacant lot. This deposit can be forfeited by a would-be proprietor if the construction of the home is not completed within the time prescribed. For a residential home, an 18 month time frame is usually designated, larger projects can apply for a long time period such as 24-30 months. Time begins to run from date of grant of the Licence.

ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS FOR COMMERCIAL PROPERTY:

If the prospective purchaser wishes to buy property to develop a tourism project, a business plan speaking comprehensively to the proposed development should also be submitted with the application.

If the prospective purchaser is a company, separate application forms should be completed by each of the Directors of the Company. The Company’s Certificate and Articles of incorporation, the Company By-laws and a Statement of Fact provided by the Companies’ Registry in Anguilla at a fee of US$150 must accompany the application.

Lisa M Bass is an Attorney-at-Law on Anguilla. She may be found at Summit Chambers, Caribbean Commercial Centre in The Valley at Telephone No: (264)497-5905; Fax No: (264) 497-3057 Email: summitchambers@anguillanet.com

Report: Tranquility Jazz Festival 2004

The second annual Tranquility Jazz Festival 2004 blew in to Anguilla with world class jazz musicians lighting up the weekend. The forecasted wet weekend did not materialize, which allowed the big name artists to perform to the best of their abilities and the audience to witness the whole affair under the stars…

The weekend kicked off early on Thursday with Cyrus Chestnut performing at Cuisinart Resort with a trio featuring the inimitable vocalist Carla Cook. The audience was thrilled with Cyrus’ breathtaking skills on the piano, while Miss Cook captivated the crowd with her silky smooth vocals.

Friday night featured another world-class vocalist in Carmen Lundy (picture right), who headlined with her trio and featuring James Spaulding one of the jazz world's most renowned sidemen and session leaders on tenor saxophone. Frank “Ku-umba” Lacy however, stole the night with the Mingus Dynasty band that thrilled the small but enthusiastic audience with their upbeat brand of jazz.

The evening started in mellow fashion with Anguilla’s own Sprocka accompanied by St Lucia’s Ronald ‘Boo’ Hinkson (top picture) and Trini Michael Boothman. This was an acoustic alchemy type performance with all three artists playing their own brand of virtuoso Guitar.

Saturday night, which was billed as the Latin Explosion started off with the Anguilla Jazz Ensemble showcasing some original pieces, put together specifically for the festival. The AJE featured some of Anguilla’s best know musicians. Lennox Vanterpool on Piano, Dumpa Martin on Steel Pan, Sprocka Richardson on Guitar, accompanied by Paul Emanuel of St Maarten on upright Bass and Connis Vanterpool of saxophone.

Then came the Latin all-stars. The ageing Ray Barretto (picture right) showed that he had lost none of his Latin edge and his band lit up the night with an array of Barretto classics… He was given a standing ovation for his masterful Congo playing. Airto Moreira and his BrazJazz band featuring his wife Flora Purim on vocals concluded the evening with the very best of Bossa nova and samba rhythms….the sweet music of Brazil.. The high light being a solo performance of voice manipulation and percussion by the versatile Airto, which garnered a standing ovation from the astounded audience.

Sunday afternoon, the finale of Tranquility Jazz Festival was a Beach party featuring the local and regional artists. It was an afternoon fun food and jazz and was enjoyed by one and all.

Children's Soccer League

The National Bank of Anguilla sponsored the Primary Schools football league for the 18th year in a row. The games played over the last five weeks, featured games between the Alwyn Allison, Road School, Teacher Gloria Omololu, Valley Primary, Stoney Ground, Island Harbour and Morris Vanterpool.

The season culminated this past weekend with the semi-finals and finals being played to huge enthusiastic crowds under the lights at Coronation Park. The girls and boys finals were both contested by Road School and Stoney Ground, with Road School coming out on top in both instances. The girls final was won in the final minute. The well coached Stoney Ground girls defense held the Road Schools star striker to no goals, but fell victim to a last minute loose ball.

The boys game was well contested, and was very even for most of the first half until Road schools ball control and accurate passing took over and the boys won 3-1. Suprising since Stoney Ground had won the match during the season.

Following the match, various dignitaries and government officials help hand out trophies and medals to the various teams and individuals. NBA's Pam Riley and her team put on a well organized and excellent tournament, and a good time was had by all involved.
