Rock and Poll, Dr. John
S
Utila East Wind Staff
hould his column stay or
should it go? That was the
question posed to our readers last month and the response
was overwhelming, Dr. John certainly has the island fired up!
After five months of printing his
controversial subject matter the situation reached a head and complaints
were coming in thick and fast.
“We are a religious island, you girls
should be ashamed for printing that
filth,” said Edwin Jackson, to East
Wind editors.
It seemed the only way to resolve
the matter was to find out what East
Wind readers really wanted in a
readers poll.
Thank you to all those who took the
time to cast their vote either online,
in person or through the ballot box
in Henderson’s.
Votes were officially counted live
on HQTV on the 23rd October
alongside a heated telephone debate
over the morality of the column in
question.
“Don’t worry, he wont give you a
lethal injection tomorrow if you
don’t vote for him” said presenter
Annie Bodden during the show.
Results were unanimous however,
Dr. John won a landslide victory, an
amazing 2070 votes came in, 63%
in favour of the column staying.
As with any poll of this nature those
who felt strongly could cast any
number of votes in any number of
ways.
“The poll was ridiculous, you could
vote as many times as you like” said
Jim Warren of Sandy Bay.
“We love Doctor Johns column, its
hilarious. If you don’t like it, don’t
read it!” said Rosa….. “Normally
my son never reads anything but as
soon as the paper arrives he reads
Dr. John straight away.” She said.
So, back by popular demand this
month, find out what advice Dr.
John has to give on page 16…. if
you want to that is.

NEWSINBRIEF
Esta fue la pregunta que hicimos a
nuestro lectores el mes
pasado y la respuesta
fue abirumante, Dr. John
ciertamente la isla se ha
manifesto.
Despues de cinco meses de
publican sus temas controverciales la situación
alcanzó un alto
grado de quesas que
unieron de todas
partes.
“Somos una isla
religiosa, y ustedes muchachas
deberia de darles
vergüenza
de
publicar una
columna tan
sucia”
dijo
Edwin Jackson
a los editores de
East Wind.
Pareció que la unica
forma de resolvar
este tema fue el le
averiguar que realmente quieren los
lectores.
Gracias a todos
los que tomaron su
tiempo para emitir su
voto en persona o at-
Tranquila Troop on Tour
Managers of Tranquila bar left the island
for a well deserved last minute holiday on
October 12th.
Regular customers were not so enthusiastic
about their sudden departure as the popular
bar closed.
Distraught customers were spotted roaming
the streets at a loss for what to do.
To add insult to injury Tranquila was hit by Wilma, delaying
the reopening until Thursday 27th October, after a total closure
of fifteen days.
Keller Nominated for Prestigeous Award
Nominated for this years Copan Award was resident artist,
Neil Keller, creator of the Jade Seahorse.
Pipped at the post by Honduran singer, Jeronimo Anderson,
Mr Kellers loss created quite a stir.
“They passed up a privalage not giving the award to me”said
Mr. Keller who attended the ceremony in Tegucigalpa.
Also infuriated by the decision was award winning Demo Esperanza, who showed his dissatisfaction by throwing his own
award at the judges offices after the event.
Marooned Princess
The Princess ferry had a run of
bad luck last month.
She broke down due to engine
problems and then grounded
on a shallow mudbank while
seeking shelter from Wilma in
the Lagoon.
Here she was marooned throughout the storm as the heavy
seas in the hurricanes aftermarth made the crossing to the
mainland too trechorous.
Service of the unlucky ferry was not resumed untill Tuesday
25th.
Help Available!
Doors are open to everyone at the rehabilitation centre ‘Delitorar Allantico’ in La Ceiba, just turn up!
A full time phycologist is on hand to provide treatment in addition to daily, hour long visits by a general doctor.
Once a month a neurologist attends the clinic and together the
team treat a variety of illnesses from depression and low self
esteem to substance addiction.
“We recieve no government help and raise all funds ourselves,
we feel passionate about helping people” said Mr. Montoya,
President of the Board.
For more information visit the clinic (half a block east of Casa
Del Niño) or call 986 7979.
Island wide recycling sceme on the way
A recyclables collection service for dive shops and businesses on
Utila will soon be available thanks to Dan Spatz, Watersports Manager and Troy and Edith Bodden.
With financial assistance from US Aid they aim to distribute 50
gallon plastic barrels across the island to collect plastic bottles and
aluminium cans and ship them to the mainland aboard the Boddens
cargo boat, Prime Time.
“The minimal income will pay for a three wheeler bycycle to pick
up the trash” said Mr Dan Spatz, who hopes to have the collection
scheme up and running within a few months.
Until then you can bring clean plastic bottles and aluminum cans to
Watersports for recycling.
Pepe Lobo in Town
Preisential candidate Pepe Lobo visited the Island
on Sunday 9th October as part of his national
election campaign.
A National Party march and rally was organised
in his honour and was well attended despite the
early start.

November, 2005
Outlook
Moons
November is usually the wettest month of the year
on Utila. However the rainy season can be very
variable, with the rains coming any time from October to February, some years hardly see any rain
at all.
More rain and cloudy skies also bring a drop in air
temperatures. Water temperatures remain relativly
high as water takes longer to cool down, it might
not feel like it though without the sun.
Hurricane season officially continues untill the end
of November, although hurricanes this late on are
rare, the close call with Wilma last month was a
reminder not to underestimate this record breaking
2005 hurricane season.

MAYOR ALTON COOPER
W
hat a relief we were
spared from the
worst of Wilma’s
wrath! Her affects were felt
however and I would like to
congratulate everyone on their
impressive and speedy efforts
to return the island to normal.
Thank you to the Municipal
Emergency Committee, including the fire department, municipal police and policia preventiva
for being so willing and ready to
help.
Also to Mike Rose and Jernigan
Cooper for providing a fantastic
service evacuating the cayes and
to Troy Bodden for his generous
aid in repairing the road in Sandy
Bay.
Chepes Beach was badly eroded
during Wilma and municipal
workers repaired the damage as
quickly as possible.
My apologies to everyone for
the disruption to the towns water
supply, storm repair was unfortunately delayed whilst we waited
for the necessary parts.
▼▼
Utila Municipality has been
recognised as having the highest
standard of living in the country!
These are fantastic findings acknowledging the improvements
we have all seen in our health
service, education, water supply
and general lifestyle. It is safe
to say that Utila has progressed
more than any other municipality
in Honduras during the past four
years.
▼▼
A grand stone laying ceremony
took place for the much talked
about desalination plants on
the 12th October. Thank you to
those who attended and showed
their appreciation, it was a great
turn out and visiting parties were
made to feel very welcome.
▼▼
The sanitation project is well
underway, every single home
on the island and the cayes will
benefit from this several million
dollar programme. Representatives have begun house calls to
identify the needs of the community.
▼▼
Campoñado is currently being
paved over, a much needed landfill operation!
▼▼
As you all know the election is
coming up at the end of November, please do not hesitate to approach me with any questions or
concerns. I feel I have learnt a lot
over the past four years and am
proud to represent the community that I love. Together we can
look forward to building an even
better Utila.

HURRICANE WILMAS
DESTRUCTION
Hurricane Wilma, narrowly missed a direct hit on the island, but still made her presence felt, her
waves caused damage to many docks and heavy rain flooded the streets.
El huracán Wilma por un poquito no le dió un golpe directo a la isla. Pero su presencia se hizo sentir, sus
olas causaron daños a muchos muelles y su lluvia abundante inundo las calles.
los trabajadores municipales hicieron un trabajo rapido reparando
los tubos en la playa y en toda la
comunidad para dejarla lista y
limpia en unos pocas dias “nosotros sacamos baldes de arena
de el frente de nuestra casa todo
el dia” dijo Nadine Jackson de
Sandy Bay.
Con el ferri y avionetas fuera de
servicio muchos se quedaron atrapados en Utila “Yo tenia que
estar en Barcelona para encontrarme con mi novia pero me quede
atrapado en Utila” dijo Thomas
White, turista.
El ferri estaba atrapado en la laguna hasta que reanudo sus servicios hasta siete dias despues de
que Wilma pego.
Los viajes en avion se reanundaron hasta el viernes.
Aftecto temporalmente a los bares
más frecuentados Tranquila y
Coco Loco cerraron. ■
Utila East Wind Staff
W
ilma, the strongest
Atlantic hurricane on
record, brushed closely past Utila offering just a taste
of its awesome power.
Destructive waves, rising seas and
storm force winds hammered the
island which escaped relatively
unharmed, bar a few docks.
“It was the worst we`ve seen since
Mitch” said Mayor Alton Cooper,
who along with the rest of the community had been tracking Wilma’s
progress as she approached from
the east, a category 5 hurricane.
Islanders rushed to buy supplies
and board up while the authorthities evacuated the Cayes and issued advisories.
“They did a great job providing us
with beds and food at the public
school” said Mrs.. Munoz, evacuee from Pigeon Caye.
Wilmas wrath eroded the public
beach, divided Coco Locos bar
and tore planks out of most docks.
Water pipes were ripped out and
low-lying areas were also flooded.
The storms aftermath brought a
flurry of activity with everyone
pitching in to help. Municipal
workmen made quick work replacing the beach and the whole community managed to get the island
ready for business as usual in just
a few days.
“We shovelled sand in buckets off
the street in front of the house…
all day,” said Nadine Jackson of
Sandy Bay.
With the ferry and planes out of
action many were marooned on
Utila, “I was supposed to be in Barcelona proposing to my girlfriend
but I got stuck on this rock!” said
Thomas White, stranded tourist.
The ferry was stuck in the mud
in the lagoon and did not resume
service until seven days after Wilma hit.
However travel was possible by
the Friday when planes began ferrying passengers.
The most lasting effect of Wilma
was the temporary closure of its
too most frequented bars, Tranquila and Coco Locos.
“I feel a bit lost, where am I am
supposed to go and drink beer
now,” said Elliot King, tourist.

O
ne young mother simply
couldn’t wait and at precisely
2am during the height of the
storm Yuma the dog gave birth to five
doberman puppies aboard owner
Thierrys sail boat.
“She started making strange noises…
brghhhh urghhh… and made them just
there! The placenta was full of smelly
s**t, I had a really interesting night!”
gushed Thierry. He has plans to build a
doggy palace outside as soon as the puppies get too big for the boat.
And the names? Simple, “Wilma one,
two, three, four and five”.

Hurricanes - Did You Know?
►The US Government attempted to weaken hurricanes by dropping silver iodide into
them throughout the sixties and seventies. This operation, known as Stormfury, involved seeding clouds in the rainbands of storms by dropping chemicals from planes.
However this expensive tactic was abandoned after 20 years later after findings showed
that the technique failed to affect most hurricanes.
►Historically hurricanes in the West Indies were named after the particular saint’s day
on which the hurricane occurred. From 1953, the U.S. National Weather Service began
using female names for storms, in 1979 men’s names began to be included in the list.
►The word Hurricane is derived from ‘Hurican’ the Carib God of evil, which itself
was derived from the Mayan creator God ‘Hurakan’.
►Por un par de décadas el gobierno de los E.E.U.U. intentó debilitar huracanes cayendo el yoduro de plata en los rainbands de las tormentas, conocidos como operación
stormfury. El científico sembró las nubes en huracanes a través de años 60 y de años
70. Sin embargo, las observaciones hechas en los años 80 demostraron que la técnica
no trabaja para la mayoría de los huracanes.
►La palabra huracan se deriva de “Hurican” el Carib dios del Mal, a que sí mismo
fue derivado del dios Mayan del creador “Hurakan”.
►Historicamente huracanes en los Indies del Oeste fueron nombrados por el particular dia de Santos en el cual ocurio el huracan. En 1953 el U.S. National Weather Service (U.S. Servicio Nacional de empezo a usar nombres femeninas para los tormentas;
Desde 1979 empezaron a usar nombres de ambos sexos. ■
Hurricane Mitch passed Guanaja
as a category 4 hurricane in October
1998, resulting in an estimated 9,086
total deaths making it one the of the
deadliest hurricanes in history.
Hurricane Fifi passed over the Bay
Islands as a category 2 hurricane in
September 1974, bringing a storm
surge of up to 12ft and torrential
rains.
Huracan Mitch:El 27 de Octubre
1998, Huracan Mitch paso por Guanaja como categoria cuatro. Mitch
produjo fuertes lluvias causando
inundaciones y deslices de lodo. Con
un estimado de 9,086 muertes es
considerado uno de los huracanes
mas catastroficos en la historia.
Huracan Fifi: El 18 de Septiembre,
1974, el ojo del huracan Fifi paso
entre La Costa de Honduras y Las
Islas de la Bahia como huracan de
categoria dos. El oleado subio hasta
12 pies y causando lluvias torenciales; Piensan que Fifi causo la muerte
de mas 8000 personas. ■

The word on the street
T
his month East Wind editors took to the streets to
find out your thoughts on the upcoming election.
Many were reluctant to say and a few still hadn’t
made their mind up yet but there were a few brave Utilians willing to lay their opinions on the line and answer the
question ‘Who do you want to see win and why?’
“Vote Alton and Pepe!
Altons a good man, can’t complain. We need
him another ten more years. And if Pepe
Lobo wins we need him another 20 years.
Oh, and Jerry for Deputy!”
“Vote por Alton y Pepe.
“Altons buena persona, no puedo quejarme.
Lo necesitamos otros diez años más. Y si
gana Pepe Lobo, lo necesitamos otros 20 años. Oh y Jerry
para diputado!”
Ceasar Agusto Rayes, Fire Chief.
“I`ll be voting for Richard.

“I’m gonna vote for Alton, he’s the best man
for Mayor of Utila, I used to be a National but
now I’m behind Alton all the way!”
“Yo votare por Alton, es el mejor hombre para
alcalde de Utila. Yo antes era nacionalista,
pero ahore estoy con Alton todo el camíno.”
Captain Hal Whitefield
“Alton. He’s done a good job, probably not everybody thinks the same way but he got us water, fixed
the streets, helped a lot with education and security.
For how many years have we had computers in Honduras? and how many other Mayors have provided
all the schools with them?”
“Alton ha hecho un buen trabajo, probablemente no todos piensar
asi, pero nos consiguio el agua, reparo las calles, ayudo un montón
con la educación y con la seguridad en la isla. Por cuantos años
han habido computadoras en Honduras? Y cuantos otros alcaldes
han prociste de computadoras para las escuelas?”
Fernando Velasco
I’m a national, I votes blue. Its hard to say on the island who’s
going to win. Pepe Lobo through the country though!
Soy nationalista, voto azul. Es dificil a decir quien va a ganar
en las eleciones local. Pepe Lobo por presidente!

Desalination
Celebration!
T
Utila East Wind Staff
he grand stone laying ceremony for the two million dollar
desalination project was held
on the 12th of October on Western
Path.
The day kicked off with speeches from
an array of visiting dignitaries with
Utila’s Mayor, Alton Cooper, receiving a standing ovation for his impressive oration.
The crowds were then treated to three
well-rehearsed Polka dances performed by Public school kids who
donned bright, traditional costumes for
the occasion.
Refreshments followed the laying of
the stone and everyone milled around
enjoying the sun on the virtually mosquito free meadow.
The plants were donated by the Spanish government and once up and running should provide the island with an
unlimited supply of fresh water.

impresionante oracion.
Entonces trataron a las muche hombres al pozo con tres bien ensayados
Bailes de Polka realizado por los es-
tudiantes de la Escuela Publica quién
puso los trajes brillantes, tradicionales
para la ocasión.
Los refrigerios siguieron despues de
poner el tor de la piedra y todos gozaron en los alrededores bajo el sol en virtualmente el prado libre del mosquito.
Las plantas fueron donados por el Gobierno Español y una vez arriba y funcionando debera proveer a la isla con
una fuente ilimitada de agua dulce. ■

Pakistani Quake
A violent 7.6 magnitude
earthquake that struck
Pakistan and neighbouring countries on 8th October has so far claimed
more than 50,000 deaths
and caused massive devastation.
The remote mountainous region of Kashmir was
worst hit, the area has been centre of a bitter territorial dispute between Pakistan and India for over fifty
years.
The aid operation was badly hampered by unfavourable weather and there are fears that a second wave
of deaths will occur as the cold Himalayan winter
sets in and many are still yet to receive help.
There is concern over the amount of international
donations for aid and reconstruction
“We have been donated about $620m or something,
which is totally inadequate. It should be more than
$5bn,” said Pakistani leader Gen Musharraf. ■
Bird Flu
The bird flu that has swept
Asia since 2003, causing more than 60 human
deaths, is spreading.
Britain, Turkey, and
Greece have reported cases of the disease, thought
to be carried by migrating birds.
Currently the flu can only be caught from an infected
bird however scientists are concerned it may mutate
into a form that can spread from person to person.
“The range of deaths could be anything between 5m
and 150m,” said Dr Nabarro, UN co-ordinator for
avian and human influenza. ■
Rosa Parks Death
Civil rights icon, Rosa Parks,
died peacefully aged 92 on the
24th October.
She was arrested in Alabama in
1955 for refusing to give up her
seat on a bus to a white man.
Her arrest sparked a boycott of
the city bus system organised
by Martin Luther King Jnr. that
lasted over a year and marked the start of the civil
rights struggle in the US. ■
Strawberry Smell Trademark Bid Fails
French company, Eden
Sarl failed in its attempt to
trademark the smell of fresh
strawberries to use in soaps,
stationery, leather goods
and clothing.
They argued that although
strawberries may look and taste different, the scent
is always the same, and therefore could be trademarked.
The court disagreed, smell experts found strawberries can actually have up to five different smells. ■
India Train Derails
100 people were killed
when a passenger train
derailed in floods in
southern India on Saturday 29th October.
The crash is thought to
have been caused by a collapsed bridge.
100 additional deaths occured due to heavy rains in
the south of India. ■

he bizarre mutton
snapper phenomenon is expected to
arrive any time now.
Hoards of the tasty fish will
pass through Utilas waters encouraging even the
most novice of fishermen to
throw out their lines and try
their luck.
It is uncertain as to what
causes the sudden and brief
invasion of the snapper who
usually hang around for
about a week before moving on.
“Their path brings them
from Omoa, spawning as
they go, its like an early
Christmas present for the
island!” said Mayor Alton
Cooper.
And it’s not only fishermen
following hot on the snapper’s heels, Old Tom, aka
the Whaleshark, should also
be making a reappearance
when they arrive. ■

Top 20 Diving Heros
local heros
Mr. Johnny Bodden
First scuba divier on the island.
Mr Bodden was given a mask by an
american tourist as a young man. He
used it to free dive and was impressed
with the improved vision it provided.
He later aquired full scuba gear and was
the first to use it to explore Utila’s reefs.
He continued with the watery theme in
later life, starting the first water purifying
business on the island, he is still going strong providing the island
with safe drinking water.
Alton Cooper
First Utilian Diving Instructor.
First discovered his love for diving at the age of
ten, went on to the become the first ever Utilian
Scuba diving instructor.
He has logged over 2000 dives in Utila giving
him extensive knowledge of the islands waters
and the creatures that live in them. He established his own dive shop in 1994 and hasn’t
looked back since.
Gunter Kordovsky
Proffessional treasure hunter, diving
extroadonaire.
Gunter Kordovsky plunges into the
waters around Utila more often than he
has hot dinners.
Originally from Austria Gunter came to
the island with the Fathom II expidition
looking for Spanish galleons and pirate
booty.
Upon discovering little more treasure
than a great love for the rock he moved
here permanently in 1974.
Gunter now spends his days diving with
his 12 year old daughter (the youngest diver on Utila) and supplying
the island with his delicious homemade yoghurt.

Dolphins
Ultimate diving mammals. Used as aids in war
dolpins help find mines, patrol anchorages to spot infiltrators and guide ships through hazardous waters.
US Navy dolphins recently helped de-mine a key
port in Iraq.
“They don’t miss anything,” a Navy spokesman said.
“If a mine is there, they will find it. Nothing gets by
them.”
7
Commercial Divers
Hard core deep divers. Commercial divers dive to amazing depths for hours at at time. Divers work in a variety of
fields, deep sea cutting welding and drilling. The majority
of commercial divers are employed by the oil industry.
The work is strenuos and dangerous, often involving
spending months at a time on isolated oil platforms.
Ama Divers, Japan
Female free divers who have been harvesting abalone,
sea urchins and pearls in Japan for at least 4000 years.
Without the aid of any wetsuits or scuba equipment, they
dive up to ten meters holding their breath for minutes at a
time in the cold water.
Due to modern commercial fishing and newly introduced
pearl farms, numbers of true Ama are declining.
Many girls continue to don the white igosi (traditional
ama coutumes) posing and performing for tourists.
WWII Frogmen
Rode torpedoes underwater steering them to their
targets. Brainchild of Italian Lieutenant Lioria Visintini,
a torpedo pilot himself, who was killed by depth charges
during an attack on British ships in Gibraltar.
Allied navies were quick to exploit these techniques and
soon British and US soldiers were riding torpedos too.
Yves Le Prieur, France
Aquaman
The first man to design a working scuba system.
Le Prieur was first to pioneer diving technologies for
solely recreational reasons.
“The thing which gives me the greatest pride is that I
was the first to plunge into the sea swimming freely
underwater without any conection or tie to the terrestrial world..”
Underwater superhero. Created in 1941 he started out protecting the oceans from the Nazis. He
lives in Alantis, an underwater city and is able to
communicate with and control aquatic creatures,
swim underwater at rates up to 100 mph and withstand extremes of temperature and pressure.
Despite his extensive underwater abilities he
cannot survive out of water for more than a few
hours.

Jacques Mayol, France
World famous freediving pioneer. His father
died in a diving accident. Luckily he met the
dolphin, Clown (the mother of Flipper, from the
1960s TV series) and later said: “I learned everything from her.”
Began free diving as a young man and along
with Enzo Maiorca his great rival continued to
push the limits of the sport. In 1976 Mayol was
the first to break the monumental 100m barrier.
Mayal and Enzo’s legdendry rivalry was the basis of the acclaimed film the
Big Blue in 1988.
Mayol set ten world records, he credited his success to meditation and
yoga.
Sadly Jacques Mayol commited suicide in 2001 at the age of 74.
Lottie Frazer US
First female Diving Instructor. Learnt to freedive at the age of six.
Throughout her life she suffered three serious accidents, each time she was
told she would never walk again, she recovered fully however and credits
swimming and diving as the reason.
The first time she put a regulator into her mouth was during the instrctor
examination.
James Bond, Britain
World famous divng secret agent. James Bond regularily
dons a wetsuit and tank to beat the baddies below the sea.
Bond creator Ian Fleming was a big fan of Cousteau, they
dived together, many of 007 underwater exploits are based
on the adventures of Cousteau.
Greek Sponge Divers
Divers work completely naked to depths of up to 100ft. collecting
sponges form the seabed. Traditionally divers use a heavy ‘trigger stone’
to decend as quickly as possible, often resulting in perforated eardrums
causing deafness.
Jacques Cousteau, France
The best known of the early recreational scuba diving pioneers. Through his books and Oscar winning
documentries he brought diving into the spotlight in the
40s and 50s enthusing a generation to take up diving as a
recreational sport. Cousteau co-developed the Aqualung
in 1943.
Pipin and Audrey Ferraras, Italy
Free diving double act..
The duo shared a passion for the sea and pushing the limits in the freediving circuit.
Sadly Audrey died in 2002 while attempting to break
Tanya Streeters 160m no limits record. Pipin continues to
pursue free diving records.

Set the depth record on compressed air of 132m / 437ft in 1968, the record
remained unbroken for over thrity years until 1990.
Hans Hass, Austrian
Pioneer of underwater photography and film. Developed an oxygen rebreather in 1939 to allow him to observe and record marine life as silently
as possible.
“It was a wonderful feeling to linger underwater ......... I had become an amphibious being and could travel along with the fish!”
Tanya Streeter, Cayman / Bristish / U. S.
Record breaking free diver. At one time she beat the
mens free limits record, it has since been rebroken but she
still holds the womens world record for no limits freediving by reaching 160m in 2002. She grew up in the Cayman
Islands and has been in the sea from an early age.
Pascal Bernabe, France
Open circuit scuba depth record holder.
Claimed a new world record depth of 330m on open circuit scuba this year.
Zale Parry, US
One of the first scuba diving instructors in the US in 1954.
She became a national celebrity when she broke the deep dive record of 64m
/ 209 ft, went on to star in a TV series called “Kingdom of the Sea” and was
also featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated in 1955.
Shadow
The amazing diving dog. Trained by owner
Dwane Flotsom, Florida, who wanted to share
the experience with his nine month old black
mongrel Shadow.
His final design consists of a lead weighted
jacket and a helmet that allows Shadow to use
air from Flotsoms tank.

F
rom ducking and diving as
a used car salesman to the
dangers of deep diving on
air, Mark Ellyat is the George
Bush of diving and likes to shoot
his mouth off at every opportunity.
“I’m pretty disappointed in
diving doctors - they encourage
you to report any bends, but
when you do, they say you’re
irresponsible” said Ellyat, whose
deepest dive was to 313m.
“I’ve been given a body which
doesn’t seem to mind too
much,” he says on his self proclaimed natural ability to dive to
extremes.
“If they can
hear someone
like
me, …then
they’ll realise
there are a
million more
things they can learn.”
“I don’t think people should
try to do the things I do unless
they’ve done the things I’ve
done. They shouldn’t think that
because I can do it they can.”
“A lot of them (diving doctors)
seem to have egos higher than
their qualifications.”
Nice one Mark.

Utila’s Corals and the
Water Temperature
T
Dive site of the month Fish of the month
he Caribbean has
experienced a sea
temperature
rise
bringing on quite a sudden, life-threatening coral
bleaching epidemic.
So what IS happening to
our Corals?
Corals are very complex
organisms, made up of
three different elements;
animals, plants and minerals. The plant, zooxanthellae (algae), produces food
for the animal portion and
the mineral is the calcium
carbonate skeleton.
Coral live in a symbiotic
relationship with the zooxanthellae housed in their
tissues.
When zooxanthellae are
expelled from the tissues
the white calcium carbonate structure is left, hence
the name – Coral Bleaching.
Through natural process a
small percentage of zooxanthellae are lost, just like
the cells in our body die and
Willy’s Hole by Remi Michaud
are replaced.
Changes in the environment however can result in
mass coral bleaching. Corals prefer water between
25 and 29 degrees Celsius
depending on their location
on the reef. Increased water
temperatures for prolonged
periods can bleach corals,
Such as on Utila this late
summer season.
As human skin is vulnerable to ultraviolet radiation,
so are corals. Doldrums,
calm flat water, have a
negative impact on them.
When the water movement
is minimal and the sun is
powerful, elevated amounts
of UV rays pass through
the water column stressing
the coral, and causing them
to bleach.
Other stressors that bleach
corals include coral disease,
excess shade, smothering,
salinity changes and pollution.
This years coral
bleaching event not only
happened on Utila but Caribbean wide and the statistics’s are quite astounding
– Florida Keys, Barbados,
Tobago and Panama report
60-70% of all coral species
being affected.
In late August early September divers and scientists first started to notice
the bleaching
. In
October it earned its name
of a mass coral bleaching
event. Time will tell how
this is going to affect Utilian waters.
The good news is when
conditions return to normal
the zooxanthellae often return to the coral within 6-8
weeks. The brilliant colours return and islands like
Utila can breathe a sigh of
relief as the reef survives.
However as climate changes persist the chances of the
corals surviving this event
are diminished.
We can try to minimize
the impact we have on the
environment surrounding
coral, such as lessening the
amount of human waste
going untreated into the
water and managing the
growth of our community
by leaving the mangroves
in place. ■
W
illy’s
hole
is right in
the heart of
Marine Reserve, Turtle Harbour.
Between the Maze and
Old House, its buoy
is well protected from
currents year round.
The coral garden starts
below the boat at 4m /
15 feet.
Just west of the mooring line you cannot
miss the narrow crevice that takes you down
and onto the wall at
12m / 40 feet. Keep the
steep wall to your right
and descend to your
desired depth.
The wall meets a beautiful coral garden seabed at 28m / 90 feet.
Consider
spending
some time here looking for crustaceans and
Golden tail Morays.
Mind the wall however
– this dive site’s main
attraction is an inward
jog a mere few minutes
into the dive.
Known as Willy’s hole,
legend has it that it was
once jammed packed
with grouper. Captain Willy (sadly now
passed away) a fisherman from the Cayes
claimed it for his own
and would often return
home with “a hundred
pounds and more”.
You might not find any
grouper but you will
find a small cavern
at 26m / 80 feet full
of Glassy Sweepers,
also watch for Banded
Coral Shrimp and Barracuda.
Continue up and towards the Maze for
some variety and a
chance to see some
spotted drum.
Take the conservative
route on your reciprocal heading and follow the shallows back
to the boat, you’ll find
Lettuce Sea slugs and
red-lipped
blennies
everywhere.
Enjoy
your dive! ■

PRAYERORACION
DEAR DR. JOHN
Querido Dr. John
Nos llaman ‘spanairds’,
vine a Utila hace como
cuatro años con mi
esposo y mi pequeña
hija, dejamos un pueblo
pequeño en la costa con
la esperanza de mejores
empleos y mas seguridad que nosotros encontraríamos en Utila.
Nuestro sueño de una
vida mejor se hicieron
realidad, mi esposo y
yo encontramos trabajo.
El trabajo es duro pero
el pago es major que
en la costa. Mi hija va
a una escuela maravillosa, donde vivimos hay
mucha gente, pero aún
es mejor que el pequeño
pueblo de donde venimos.
Ahora tenemos esperanzas de un buen futuro, he
visto grandes cambios
en la isla en los últimos
Cuatro años, ahora tenemos energía eléctrica
las 24 horas, las escuelas
tienen computadoras, las
calles han mejorado y
son limpiadas todo los
dias. No me preocupa
la seguridad de mi hija
cuando ella va a la escuela, ni cuando juega
con sus tantos amigos.
La calidad de agua ha
mejorado, la playa es
hermosa y diversión para
toda la familia. Tenemos
un celular para cambiar
la familia en la costa.
Mi problema ahora es
que estoy preocupada,
me preocupa que todos
estos buenos cambios se
vallan a detener, y otros
cambios traerán problema.
Yo miro lo feliz que esta
mi familia ahora y me
da temor que no dure,
no quiero que mi nueva
vida en la isla se convierta como mi vida vieja
en tierra firme. Yo nunca
soñé que yo pudiera
encontrar una vida tan
Buena en Honduras.
Por favor Dr. John que
consejo puede usted
darme.
‘Spanaird’ Feliz
Querida esposa y madre
Hondureño
Ellos me llaman extranjero, yo soy norte americano, yo también he estado 4 años en Utila, y
estoy de acuerdo que la
isla de Utila es mucho
mejor que cuando llegue
por primera vez. Lo mejor que podemos desear
es para que un Viento
del Este mande a volar
a aquellos que prometen
diferentes cambios y
solamente dejar parados
a aquellos que te han
dado buenos cambios.
~
Dear Dr. John
They call us Spaniards.
I came to Utila about
four years ago with my
husband and our young
daughter. We left a small
town on the coast with
hopes for better jobs and
security that we would
find in Utila. Our dreams
of a better life came true.
Both me and my husband
found jobs. The work is
hard but the pay is better than on the coast. My
daughter goes to a wonderful school. Where
we live is very crowded,
but it is still better than
the small town we came
from. Now we have hope
November, 2005
for a good future. I have
seen great changes on
the island in the last four
years. We now have 24
hour power. The schools
have computers, the
streets have improved
and are cleaned everyday. I do not worry about
the safety of my daughter
when she goes to school
or plays with her many
friends, the quality of the
water has improved, the
beach is beautiful and
fun for the whole family.
We have a cell phone
to call our family on
the coast. My problem
is now I am worried. I
worry that all these good
changes will stop, and
other changes will bring
problems. I look at how
happy my family is now
and I fear that it will not
last. I do not want my
new island life to become
like my old mainland
life. I never dreamed
that I could find such a
good life in Honduras.
Please, Dr. John, what
can you advise me.
Happy Spaniard…
Dear Honduran wife
and mother
They call me a foreigner,
I am a North American.
I have also been here for
four years, and agree
that the island of Utila is
much better than when
I first came, the best
we can hope for is an
Eastwind that will blow
away those that promise
different changes and
leave standing those that
have already given you
good changes. ■

Skeletons in your closet? Nows the time to fess up and
brush off the cobwebs on a dusty relationship. Lighting old
fires without neglecting the new will prove a challenge. But
nows the time to start thinking long term and securing your
blankets for the winter season.

Whether your birthday was one to remember or a night at
Bar in the Bush that you will never remember, your friends
were what made it count. Continue the celebrations and appreciate this stage of your life. Practice what you preach and
pay attention to those who are listening.

Its time to stop waiting around for the pot of gold at the end of
the rainbow to come to you. Go out there and seek your fortune, lady luck is waiting just around the corner and her pockets are full. Remember, blaming the weather is not an excuse
and getting wet will take you to more lucrative places.

Reality is the life you lead not what your T.V. tells you. Mr
and Mrs Right will not be perfect… but may be perfect for
you. Be true to yourself and don’t pretend to be anyone else.
Your life is the one to lead, so point it in the right direction.

A man is having his tank filled up
at a petrol station. The attendant
spots two penguins sitting in the
back seat of the car.
He asks the driver, “What’s with
the penguins in the back seat?”
“I found them but I don’t know
what to do with them.” he answers.
The clerk thinks and says, “Take
them to the zoo.”
“Hey, good idea,” says the driver.
The next day the man is back and
the attendant sees the penguins
are stilll there. “Hey I thought you
were taking them to the zoo.”

Football
by Frank Jackson
he Utila soccer league is coming to an end as the semifinals are approaching.
Only four of the six teams will enter,
so far three teams have qualified, The
Dolphins, Sharks and Juventus. A face
off between the Tigers and Calis will
decide who will be the fourth team to
enter in the semifinals round.
My bets on the Dolphins to claim the
championship title, they have the best
players and the most points so far. But
Juventus and Sharks might well have
something to say about that.
Lately the Sharks have been playing
very determind to win and Juventus
are tied in first place with the Dolphins. The race for the championship
is going to be hot, everybody`s adrenaline is sure to be pumping. ■

Official Update from
Johnny Hinds.
Football is currently suspended due
