St. John Homeless Connect Project Set for October 21 at Luthern Church Nurses on Sick Leave at Morris de Castro Clinic; Petition Calls for End To Workplace ViolenceBy Jaime Elliott St. John Tradewinds There were more questions than answers last week about what is going on behind the doors at the Morris F. de Castro Clinic. Since the end of August, the Department of Healths Cruz Bay clinic has reportedly been turning away patients hoping to get services formerly available at the facility. When asked why, however, week, citing the departments polity of not commenting on personnel matters. While de Castro Clinic nurses also declined to comment, citing a pending case against a DOH employee, there is clearly something going on at the Cruz Bay health facility. What is certain is that not one member of the full time permanent Registered Nurse (RN) staff has reported for duty since August 29. All of the RNs, who essentially ran the clinic for years with over sight from St. Thomas, are out on sick leave. The action has been reported to be a protest over workplace conditions at the clinic which have been ignored by DOH for about three years, according to residents familiar with the issue. The gap in services at Mor ris de Castro is being covered by Thomas once or more a week. Immunizations, for example, are now only available by appointment with a St. Thomas RN who works out of Morris de Castro once a week.

Pre and Post-Natal and Womens Health programs are also being run by one Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) who is traveling from St. Thomas once a week. Also worrisome to residents is the lack of Mental Health Care (MHC) at Morris de Castro. According to DOH regulations, a LPN must work under the guidance of a doctor or RN. An LPN from St. Thomas is currently running mental health care at the clinic, but since there are no RNs on duty, the act is in violation of DOH regulations. And there is no public heath nursing at Morris de Castro as that position was terminated from DOHs budget. The former MHC nurse Sally Browne only learned about the termination a day before she was due to return to work. department, because she was not given the required 30 days notice, and is waiting to hear from DOH Brownes position has been terminated her position last year as well, but Brownes grievance that time resulted in the reinstatement of the position. It remains to be seen what the outcome will be for Browne this time around. Talk about the happenings at Morris de Castro has been circulating across St. John for weeks, but the noise rose to a roar last Midwife Francine Jacobson, who has been out on sick leave since August 29, was reportedly threatened with termination by DOH When news of Jacobsons threatened termination spread, an online petition circulated via the website www.change.org. The petition was started by Briana Jacobson, Francine Jacobsons daughter, on Wednesday night, October 5, and had garnered the signatures of 70 people by Thursday after noon, October 6. The petition is directed to the Department of Health and calls for the end to workplace violence at Morris de Castro Clinic. Workplace violence in the Morris De Castro Clinic in St. John, VI has been report [sic] for the past three years, according to the petition. Grievances via unions have been presented and either dismissed or overlooked. Nothing has been done by the VI Government to protect the current staff that is employed there and is now being turned around to victimize the employees that are presenting these issues. We the undersigned, are concerned citizens who support Francine Jacobson and urge our leaders to act now to address the serious issues of the workplace violence and intimidation that is currently taking place at the Morris De Castro Clinic, according to the petition. By Jaime Elliott St. John Tradewinds As federal agents descended on the V.I.

It was really fun to do the paintings from Tortola and St. Thomas, but they just didnt sell that well, said Estern. So I thought I would just stay home and focus on this island. Esterns decision proved to be the correct one. Her widely popular calendars jump off the shelves and she has sold out all 3,000 copies of the calenders for the past four years. The painters twelfth calendar is themed Surf and Turf and includes both underwater and landscape scenes of St. John as seen through Esterns distinctive eye.

The inspiration for this year's calendar were really the trees, said the painter. I love the water and I love painting underwater images, so I included those paintings. But for the rest I wanted to do something new and these trees are just so beautiful. I have always wanted to paint the Caneel Bay Resort tree and that kind of started my tree inspiration, Estern said.

St. John Tradewinds, October 10-16, 2011 11 Residents Line Up for Flu Shots, Cholestrol Tests and More at Community Health FairBy Jaime Elliott St. John Tradewinds Residents packed the openair ground level area at the new St. John Legislature building on Thursday afternoon, October 6, for the Community Health Fair. The fair was organized and hosted by Senator Patrick Simeon Sprauve, chairperson of the Senate Committee on Health and Hospitals, who hoped last weeks event such public outreach happenings. This is part of my major initia tive to provide preventative care to make our communities healthier, said Sprauve. This is not a one time thing.

Residents were able to get free ol, blood glucose, blood pressure and glaucoma screenings. Dental exams, HIV tests and eye exams were also available during the fair. Several chiropractors were even on hand, looking over peoples postures and recommending courses of treatment. Many community organizations also attended the fair, offering residents information on everything from Dial-a-Ride to the Medicare. Celia Kalousek of the St. John Community Foundation was on hand trying to compile a Senior Services directory. restaurants, services and businesses offer discounts and specials for seniors, said Kalousek. Were going to put together a directory for seniors with all of this information in one place and it will also be on our website. Scratch band music played in the background as residents took advantage of the health fair to check their blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Members of Sprauves staff were also in attendance, handing out healthful snacks for residents. This is a great service for the community, said Athena Swartly.

Post 131 gives a special thanks to those in the community who have and are supporting all of our veterans. The year 2011 marks the 20th Anniversary of the End of the Cold War, the era which spanned from 1945 to 1991. These veterans who served between the declared War Eras of WWII, Korean, Vietnam, Lebanon/Grenada, Panama and Gulf are known as the forgotten veterans. The veterans who served in this era also answered the call drafted or volunteered, when it was popular and when it was not America needed its guardians of freedom and these veterans were there. These veterans also served around the globe for 46 years ensuring that freedom would not disappear at the hands of totalitarian communist regimes. These veter ans did this work in places most of the world never heard of and at locations that only made routine headlines. They did it in the air, on land and at sea. They served with our active duty forces, our reserve forces and with the National Guard. These forgotten veterans all served with the same conviction and honor as did those of us in the declared war eras. We all served with pride. The Cold War involved many shades of warfare; conventional and unconventional, open and in the shadows. Veterans of this era served in all kinds of roles, from the mundane headquarters jobs (like most of us present veterans) to the front lines, in the bunkers and over Soviet airspace, tracking submarines and detecting enemy radar and signals along the coasts, deployed to Nike Hercules nuclear missile units that defended such familiar places as New Jersey to forward locations along the Iron Curtain and the Korean DMZ and in places of which many had never heard. There were times when the Cold War turned very hot, and these veterans accepted that risk. Whatever role we as veterans played, it was a role that served our country and kept our freedom. Veteran's Day is coming and Post 131 Members want all Cold War Veterans to join them in a parade and activities. Let this Veter an's Day be one that gives special recognition to our Cold War war riors, which is long over due. Your American Legion Post 131, working to serve our community and all veterans. God bless America, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the men and women of our Armed Forces.
St. John Tradewinds The Coral Bay Community Council is planning to apply for more federal grants to improve stormwater management and environmental conditions in Coral Bay. These grants typically require a one-to-one match of funds. For every dollar of federal funds received, one dollar must be provided by the local community in actual dollars, volunteer time, or other in-kind services. Therefore, CBCC can do bigger projects and ask for more federal matching funds, if land owners in Coral Bays neighborhoods are willing to provide actual dollars for concrete and more. Project costs include engineer ing, permitting, management as well as the actual construction costs. And as always, grant ap-St. John Tradewinds, October 10-16, 2011 13 CBCC Looking for Private Matching Funds for Additional Grants plications are on tight deadlines; even though the project wont be able to start until summer 2012 or later.

I am sitting here watching Public Television and thinking about what a wonderful job Osbert Potter is doing for our community. We have so many great with people I know. I saw Carlos Robles at K-Mart yesterday, the day before I saw him on TV teaching us and the people at I may be mistaken but I think Potter was a senator once. We are so lucky he has found a way to serve his community doing something he loves doing. Wouldnt it be great if more of us could follow his example? The programing is helping this community grow; watch it some time. I remember a few short years ago a senator shot and killed his son with an illegal gun. And it was okay. This community has come a long way, but we still have a ways to go. Find something that you really like doing and do it. Do it with the intent of helping everyone you meet while you are doing it. It is amazing to me how nice most of the government workers are that I meet. I me 10 years but I learned it. All they really want is managers that can help be successful at work doing something that they think is worth while. All it takes is a manager who wants to get the job done, one who is not distracted by the pay or the status or the connections. I think that the government workers in our community deserve managers that can help them succeed at what they are doing. Do you?

Land! Those precious acres of real estate that nobody cared about until the owner dies. And then, after the will is read, brother against brother, sister against sister and everybody in between. Many years ago, the land was teeming with crops and a feeding ground for animals. Now its a sell quickly, get money and move on business. Land that was in the family for years is now a villa retreat. Making money for the new owners. While this same scenario could have provided income for many generations, our people take the easy road and look towards the short-term solution. The ation is often worse. Not to mention the hurtful words and accusations hurled at each other. We often lament that outsiders come in and take over our land. We say that the government is helping them. We also comment that those of a certain age or island look after each other. Well, you know what? Good for them. We used to the very same thing. In the old days when someone was going to cast his roof, the women would cook and the men would come together and work. Locally owned businesses would be frequented and even credit would be given out to those in need. Govreadily assist residents with manpower or equipment to cut a road, remove debris or some other assignment. Now the community spirit is replaced by individual capitalism. If a family that prays, eats, sleeps, works and worships together can do these things, how is it that piles and piles of dirt and rocks can sever those links? If we do not change our perception of what the true value of St. John is, we can no longer call it Love City. For all well will have is four walls and a roof The word hate may seem harsh, but grown men and women have come to blows over land that they did not even buy. We cannot ask our children to settle their disputes with peers if our actions are childish. I cannot go about telling you how to heal years of hurt and pain. Or how to split the inheritance so everybody gets a fair share. But remember this, words, attitudes and actions are passed down from parents to children and pretty soon we wont even recollect All that will be left is a split in the family tree. So how ever you come to terms with your land issues. Because in the end, we might not be able to say this land is your land, this land is my land. It will end up someone elses land and we will be the losers. Emmanuel PrinceFamily Fued
