New to Anguilla?
Another One! As of November 16th, Hurricane Lenny is headed in our direction.
Hurricane Jose passed about 20 miles south of Anguilla during October. According to the hotel association, "the storm caused only minimal damage to member properties and businesses. A quick survey and site inspection revealed only a few minor trouble spots, including beach redistribution along Rendezvous Bay and beach erosion at Shoal Bay West [not The Shoal Bay] and Maundays Bay." The torrential rains (13.5 inches!) that followed left temporary "lakes" in every low point across the island, but they drained away into the coral within a few days.
To the right is picture of Island Harbour village after the heavy rains.
Bryan eventually shared his secret with Americans Ray Knudsen and David Stephens and the trio formed a partnership to develop the site into a business, while protecting it as well.
Designated as an Underwater Archaeological Preserve by the Government of Anguilla, the site is being managed by AMR. The Marine Park is a joint private and public venture, that intends to be a model for underwater archaeological tourism.
AMR has developed a unique underwater museum at Stoney Bay
accessible only by divers through Shoal Bay Scuba
and sanctioned by an exclusive 20-year lease with Government.

"Heroes and Heroines of Anguilla's Revolution" is intended to be a continuous theme to honour posthumously those who featured prominently in the struggle to liberate their country from servitude and poverty's ever tightening grasp. It is an honour to salute the work and memory of four Anguillans whose loyalty to country speaks volumes as their fitting epitaphs.
News.ai will present the four heroes over the next four issues, starting with:
Edwin Wallace Rey (1906-1980)
Born at the turn of the twentieth century in 1906, Edwin Wallace Rey was one of
the key architects of Anguilla's political reformation.
The varied talents of this militant figure were greatly relied on during his
country's political crisis. Aside from being an outspoken politician, Mr. Rey was
an Architect/builder, Auto dealer, and more significantly a lobbyist for his
country's liberation from the federation of St. Kitts/Nevis. Mr. Rey was among
that group of determined activists who advocated and enforced the expulsion of
the St. Kitts police on May 30th 1967.
Wallace Rey's truck was one of the vehicles used to barricade
the airstrip to prevent police reinforcements landing. He also
spent many long nights guarding Anguilla's beaches to protect his land
against pending invasions.
Rey was a member of the Peacekeeping Committee formed after the police expulsion in 1967. His political ambitions won him a seat on the Anguilla Council in October of the same year. As an independent thinker and radical politician this statesman found it most difficult to accept compromise in his country's bid for greater autonomy. Rey was a staunch critic of British government policies towards Anguilla. He once said that "Britain had bribed Anguillans in the past" but that Anguillans would no longer "bite at everything...", would no longer live on "Pie Crust promises".
Other significant involvements surrounding the evenful life of this politician include his trip to london in 1975 as part of a delegation to discuss a new constitution for Anguilla. Rey's active involvement in his country's political life ended in 1976 when he was denied re-election to the island's legislative Council.
This project was managed by Griffin Webster/Weblinks for Anglec, the Anguilla Electricity Company. He started using Anguillian students working for the summer at Beachtech to read the GPS, compute the code using a Palm Pilot and record the data into an Access database (Indah Wallace, Csaes Watley and Aldo Jackson). By the end of the summer the GPS reading and coding were turned over to the painting crew: Irwin Proctor and Ras Isamaus Jahnya (pictured right).
Here is the key for decoding the pole labels to GPS locations.
The label is made up of two parts. The top part is the North-South location and the bottom part is the East-West location. Each part of the label is made up of one letter and two digits. Using the tables below, the letters can be decoded to a number that gives the Hours and Minutes. Then you add the two digits to it, giving a precise GPS location. Note that the letters in the North-South table do not conflict with those in the East-West table. This is to ensure that there is no confusion with the translation.
For example, the picture above shows the pole outside the News.ai office: S17 over J44, translates as 18º15.17N 63:01.44W, or 18 degrees 15.17 minutes North, 63 degrees 01.44 minutes West.
Note. Some GPS's can show the locations as XXX.yyyy degrees as well. To determine the location in this format, first convert to XX degrees yy.yy minutes. Then get a mathematician to show you how to convert base 60 numbers to decimal.

Most Enjoyable Vacation Ever.
From: Bill and Pam Livingston Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Our trip to Anguilla Date: Tue, 26 Oct 1999 21:42:00 -0700
We just returned from the most enjoyable vacation that we have ever had! Not withstanding the fact that our last two days were visited by Hurricane Jose (which extended our stay by two days!).
We met many new friends during this time and the best part was that we were hosted by the friendliest people on earth! Anguilla was everything we had hoped for, quiet, beautiful beaches and great restaurants. In particular, we would like to say thanks to Mr. Fleming and all of his staff at the Anguilla Great House for their hospitality and friendship. Also a special thanks to Ken Gulley, their newly hired Chef, that provided us with gourmet meals even through Hurricane Jose's passing. We certainly will plan a return trip to Anguilla in the future.

Moonsplash March 17-18, 2000.
The 10th annual Moonsplash
music festival and all-around beach party has been announced.
According to recording artist
Bankie Banx, festival founder and host performer, Moonsplash 2000,
will coincide with the first full moon in March, and again be held
at Banx's legendary Dune Preserve.
"The very nature of The Dune Preserve creates an experience surpassing
any other music festival. Moonsplash guests gather together in the
rustic setting like life-long friends, and enjoy the cool Caribbean
breezes, the unspoiled, white powdery beaches of Anguilla and the
twinkling lights of neighboring island, St. Maarten, as the music
continues far into the night."
"Past Moonsplash headliners include Bob Marley's Wailers, Richie Havens
and The Bacon Brothers, featuring well-known actor Kevin Bacon and his
brother Michael. Scheduled performers for Moonsplash 2000 will be
announced at a later date."

New Governor for Anguilla.
Jason Butterworth (email:
sent along this announcement from the Foreign
& Commonwealth Office:
CHANGE OF GOVERNOR OF ANGUILLA - 14/10/99
Peter Johnstone has been appointed Governor of Anguilla in succession to Robert Harris who will be retiring from the Diplomatic Service. Mr Johnstone will take up his appointment in early 2000.
Happy Hour at La Veranda is from 5 - 7pm with reduced prices on all drinks and good bar snacks. Breakfast is in the works, call 497-2225 for details.
Ecommerce Failure. Our attempt at a web-based question-answering system in the last issue was a dismal failure. We got more questions, but very few answers. We did get one correct answer to our location quiz for the old door, but it was from Christine, the same over-achiever tourist who won a previous Mystery Beach contest, and she had to be disqualified because she was standing next to me when I took the picture and she has the same picture in her photo album (correct answer was "Island Pub, Island Harbour").
Travex Site Updated. Travel Agent Joan Hays has redesigned her Anguilla web site. Update your bookmarks to the new locations:
Wheelchair bound since an automobile accident thirteen years ago, Slick has never considered himself a cripple. He's married, works full time in the vehicle inspection department and has always worked out to maintain his physical fitness. A "Send Slick" fund-raising campaigned has been underway since April 1999 and has raised $11,000 so far. Local businesses, individuals and visitors have been very supportive. Slick used these funds to purchase a special sprinting wheelchair, a tennis wheelchair, and a replacement for his regular wheelchair -the only one he has every owned!
Now as his training in preparation for the
Paralympic 2000 games
moves into into high gear, Slick's training program
includes working out at Hayden Hughe's Dungeon Gym three times
a week, and tennis practice with coach Eric Westcott at Cap Juluca
on Wednesdays and Thursdays. On Saturdays and Sundays you
may spot Slick doing road work in his special racing wheelchair between
South Hill and West End, accompanied by his supportive wife Diana, or
his brother Twidy. Since Anguilla has no proper track, all Slick's
practicing to date has been on our open roads.
You can get more information on Slick at his web site:
With the help of Judy Myers of the Australian Community Sports Development Program, Chris Nunn, head coach of the Australian Paralympic Athletics, has agreed to coach Slick. Formal application has been made for him to train with the Australian team in Australia in January 2000. The Anguilla Department of Sports is working closely with Slick to facilitate arrangements. Sponsorship is also needed to pay the costs of his competing in various international lead-up events.
What Slick really needs is 3 or 4 Corporate Sponsors.

Its nice to see that a developer can do what he loves anywhere in the world. It is my dream to do the same as you have accomplished. But for now I'm here in Canada working for a ladies clothing manufacturing developing Desktop applications in Visual Basic.
