year's "Tourism is Me" theme, which was created to
convey the message that all residents are in the busi-
ness of tourism, regardless of individual professions.
One of the highlights of the week-long schedule of
events was the free customer service training semi-
nars DOT sponsored on St. Thomas and St. Croix
conducted by professional service trainer and Virgin
Islander Bryan Williams.
"In addition to emphasizing the economic impact
of tourism in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Tourism Week
is a time to introduce our youth to careers in tourism,
give students the chance experience our islands from
a visitor's perspective and provide the VI workforce


with opportunities for professional development,"
said DOT Commissioner Beverly Nicholson-Doty.
Tourist for the Day
Approximately 30 students on St. Thomas and 30
on St. John were be treated to a field trip on the oppo-

for the Day," on May 13 and 15. The children were
among students who participated in DOT school pre-
sentations earlier in the year.
St. John greeters welcomed visitors and guests to
St. John with rum punch, cookies, Mocko Jumbies,
steel pan music and other entertainment in the Cruz
Bay Park on May 15 for the St. John Welcome Recep-
tion and awareness fair.

Ferry Fares To Remain at Current Rate - for Now


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
The price of riding the ferry to
Red Hook will not increase for at
least 60 days, if at all.
At a Tuesday evening, May 12,
meeting before a packed house of
about 80 people at the St. John
Legislature building, VI. Public
Services Commission members
voted to stay their order, passed
last month, to increase most ferry
fares for runs between St. John and
St. Thomas.
On April 1, PSC members voted
to increase the adult one-way fare
from St. John to Red Hook from
$5 to $7, and to decrease the one-
way fare from St. John to Charlotte
Amalie from $10 to $8.
Varlack Ventures and Trans-
portation Services, the ferry com-
panies which have the exclusive
franchise for the runs, were to
implement the rate changes at the
end of the May. There will be no
action now, however, until at least
mid-July in order to give the PSC
time to take a closer look at both
companies' financial records.
PSC members will select a hear-
ing examiner at their next regular
meeting, scheduled for May 19 on
St. Thomas. The 60-day stay will
allow the examiner to schedule
public hearings and answer ques-
tions raised by the V.I. Unity Day
Group regarding the franchisees'
financial situations.
On the heels of the PSC's April
ruling, members of the Unity Day
Group filed a petition for reconsid-
eration of the order which listed


"The PSC is in a lose-lose situation since
the ferry companies can not operate under the
current rate and the people can not stand the
rate increase. It's time to approach the partner
who is not here - the government."
Varlack Ventures aClaudette Ferron,
Varlack Ventures and Transportation Services Attorney


a number of issues with the ferry
companies' financial records, from
claiming loans and payments to
officers as expenses, to paying for
a condo time share from company
coffers.
The group's petition alleges
that the PSC's order effectively set
unfair, unjust and discriminatory
rates, making the ruling illegal.
Testifying before the PSC on
Tuesday night, Unity Day Group
member Nydia Lewis said the rate
hikes are not fair to St. John resi-
dents and provide more than the
legally allowed eight percent rate
of return.
"These new rates will cause un-
due hardship for residents of St.
John," said Lewis. "The approved
rates are not reasonable and cer-
tainly not fair. They allow for
more than the eight percent rate of
return which makes them against
the law."
Under the approved rate struc-
ture, a Love City family of five
would shell out $70 just for trans-
portation to and from St. Thomas,
explained Unity Day Group mem-
ber Myrtle Barry.
"We don't have a choice, if we


want to go to the movies, to a grad-
uation or an event in St. Thomas,
we have to ride the ferry," said
Barry.
Many testifiers at the meeting
called for the ferry companies to
receive federal funding, subsidiz-
ing the rates they need to collect to
stay in business while not putting
an undue hardship on the riding
public.
"We need to push to strike a
balance for the ferry companies to
receive assistance and not have the
burden weighing solely on the rid-
ers," said Stacie January, a Unity
Day Group member and commut-
er. "We need to work together to
get the companies subsidies and
not tax the public."
There are federal funds available
for the ferry companies through
mass transit subsidy programs, but
the companies themselves can not
apply for them, explained Lorelei
Monsanto, the Unity Day Group's
president.
"Through our research, we've
found several sources available
to assist ferries and PSC to make
headway on getting the subsidies,"
Monsanto said. "The ferries can't


request the funds themselves, gov-
ernment officials must do it. We
request the fees stay at $5 until the
PSC can verify our research and
answer our questions."
While supporting the Unity Day
Group's efforts, the ferry compa-
nies need the increased fares to
stay afloat, explained Claudette
Ferron, the companies' lawyer.
"Ferry boat operators have been
shouldering a massive burden and
the public has been shouldering a
massive burden for too long," said
Ferron. "By law this is a govern-
ment responsibility contracted out.
To return the rate to $5 would un-
dermine the need to increase the
rate in order the for ferry compa-
nies to stay in business."
"The PSC is in a lose-lose situa-
tion since the ferry companies can
not operate under the current rate
and the people can not stand the
rate increase," said Ferron. "It's
time to approach the partner who
is not here - the government."
Granting the ferry companies'
increase will only add to a drop in
ridership, according to Sherry-Ann
Francis, a St. John resident who
commutes to work in St. Thomas.
"The decrease in ridership is
due to the increase in the rates,"
said Francis. Fc'%ci people ride
the ferry now because the fares are
high. If less people ride the ferry
because of this increase will you
raise the rates again?"
PSC member Verne David ap-
plauded the public participation
in the matter, but wondered where
everyone was when the commis-


sion was making their decision in
April.
"You have some valid points,
but where were you earlier?" said
David. "I applaud you guys for be-
ing here, but you must take greater
responsibility to express your con-
cerns before we make a decision."
The PSC will publicize dates of
future meetings, which members
said they will make an effort to
host on St. John. For more infor-
mation contact Loma Nichols at
the PSC at 776-2191.

Gangs Becoming Prevalent in Schools, Youth Violence Increasing


By Andrea Milam
St. John Tradewinds
Lavelle Campbell delivered a
shocking message to parents at a
Tuesday evening, May 12, joint
Julius E. Sprauve School and Guy
Benjamin PTA meeting - gang vi-
olence is increasing in local schools
and children as young as elementa-
ry school-age are involved in gang
activity.
Campbell, the St. Thomas/St.
John District's School Safety Man-
ager, shared information on how
to identify gang members with the
nearly 100 parents, students and
teachers at the meeting.
"Everyone in the territory needs
to know about gangs," said Camp-
bell. "We have to take it seriously.
We're losing too many of our young
men to violence."
Campbell just returned from
training in the nation's former most
dangerous city, Camden, New Jer-
sey, which is seeing gang activity
similar to what's happening in the
territory, the safety manager ex-
plained.
A gang - or "massive," as
youths say in the Virgin Islands -
consists of three or more people
involved in negative and criminal
actions. Locally, the formation of
gangs has led to segregation on
school campuses. There's a bath-
room at Ivanna Eudora Kean High


School for students from St. John
only, according to Campbell.
Virgin Islands youth have
formed their own gangs, including
the Bloods, Crips and Latin Kings,
based on what is happening in the
states.
"Our students, for whatever rea-
son, brought it to the territory," said
Campbell.
Gangs are so active that local
community groups must remove
gang graffiti from bathrooms at
schools like IEK and Bertha C. Bo-
schulte Middle School two to three
times a month. Campbell has seen
gang violence, including fights at
IEK, dramatically increase during
his 16 months on the job, he ex-
plained.
"The government and police
force have been in denial," said
Campbell. "They're starting to see
the light."
Gang graffiti has even found its
way into elementary schools. Camp-
bell shared photos of Bloods-relat-
ed graffiti found in the bathroom
at Lockhart Elementary School.
Younger children are entering the
gang world through older siblings
and older kids in their neighbor-
hood, Campbell explained.
Parents can help prevent their
children from taking the path to
violence by being more involved in
their lives, according to Campbell.


"Lack of parental involvement
is the biggest factor in kids getting
involved in gangs," he said. "One
of the biggest things we don't do is
listen to the youth. Hear them out."
Even Love City is not immune
to gang activity - a bench at JESS,
just outside the cafeteria where the
PTA meeting convened, is tagged
in the Crips' favored color, red,
with the words "bang bang."
"These youths are not stupid,"
said Campbell. "We have to take
off the blinders, parents. We want
to lay blame on all kind of people
and not look in the mirror - that's
why we have this problem."
Parents should look for warning
signs of possible gang involvement
in their children, including living
in a high risk neighborhood; show-
ing disrespect for authority figures,
family and school; showing little to
no interest in school and using hand
signals or having a nickname.
Schools are making an effort to
cut down on gang activity, includ-
ing the gang symbols displayed on
students' backpacks and notebooks,
Campbell explained. Parents should
not allow their children to write
anything on their backpacks other
than their full, given name and the
school they attend.
"I'm talking from my heart to
get my people on the right page,"
said Campbell.

Nahim Jolly Arrested for Stealing Laptop from Gifft Hill School


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
V.I. Police Department officials
arrested 19-year-old Nahim Jolly,
of Estate Chocolate Hole, on Sun-
day, May 10, when he was spotted
with a laptop computer which was
stolen from Gifft Hill School.
GHS officials reported a bur-
glary while the school was closed
for a long weekend during St.
Thomas carnival. After locking
the school around 7 p.m. on Thurs-
day, April 30, officials opened the
doors on Monday, May 4, around 7
a.m., to discover that someone had
broken into several classrooms,
explained VIPD spokesperson
Melody Rames.
"The GHS principal discovered
that a few classrooms had been
broken into by an unknown person
or persons," said Rames. "It was
discovered that cash was taken
from teachers' desks and a laptop
was stolen."
The Sunday after the burglary
was reported, VIPD Officer Ber-
nard Lettsome spotted Jolly in
downtown Cruz Bay with a laptop
which resembled one reported sto-
len from GHS, Rames explained.
Lettsome took the laptop to the
Leander Jurgen Command and
checked the serial number which
matched that of the stolen one
from GHS, according to the VIPD
spokesperson.


When questioned by Lettsome,
Jolly, a native of Dominica, admit-
ted to stealing the laptop, accord-
ing to Rames.
"Jolly was arrested and charged
with possession of stolen proper-
ty," she said.


Jolly appeared before V.I. Supe-
rior Court Judge Michael Dunston,
who found probable cause to up-
hold the charge of possession, for
which he faces 10 years in prison
and a $7,000 fine. Jolly's arraign-
ment was scheduled for May 21.


School officials had a record of
the serial number of the laptop -
valued at $800 - which was criti-
cal to identifying the stolen item,
Rames added.
"Copying a serial number is one
of the things we try to get people


to do all the time," said Rames.
"People should keep track of the
serial numbers of their possessions
and put them somewhere safe and
separate. Without the serial num-
bers its really difficult to identify a
stolen item."

Jones and Powell Plead Not Guilty To Robbery, Assault Charges


By Joseph Tsidulko
St. John Tradewinds
The two teenagers charged
with robbing and severely beating
a tourist to St. John pleaded not
guilty to several felony charges
Thursday, May 14, in V.I. Superior
Court.
Jah-Wada Jones, 18, and Law-
rence Powell Jr., 19, each entered
not guilty pleas before Judge Mi-
chael Dunston to charges of sec-
ond-degree robbery, third-degree
assault and grand larceny
Through their attorneys, Jones
and Powell requested jury trials.
Dunston assigned their case to
Judge James Carroll III.
A police officer patrolling Cruz
Bay about an hour after midnight
on April 12 found the 55-year-
old victim, a visitor from Tennes-
see, bleeding on the ground near
the FirstBank parking lot in Cruz
Bay.
It was the first night of his vaca-
tion to the Virgin Islands. His fam-
ily owns a time share villa at the
Westin Resort and Villas.
While Jones and Powell are the
only two suspects arrested in con-
nection with the crime, witnesses
told police other men aided in the


Lawrence Powell Jr.

robbery and attack during which
the assailants made off with the
Tennessee man's wallet.
Jones, a St. Thomas resident
known as "Smooth," was arrested
the afternoon of May 6. Powell,
who lives in Estate Grunwald on
St. John, was arrested later the
same day.
Both men remain incarcerated
in lieu of $100,000 bail Judge
Brenda Hollar set at their prelimi-
nary court hearing. Their attorneys
have filed motions asking for their
release from custody upon posting
10 percent of those amounts. The
pending bail motions will be con-
sidered by Judge Carroll.
At the time of the attack, Jones
was under a curfew order as a


Jah-Wada Jones

condition of his probation for a
juvenile offense. He turned 18 last
November.
According to police, at least
two eyewitnesses identified Jones
and Powell, known as "Ups," as
the robbers. They said the victim
was trying to catch a taxi and had
approached the suspects, along
with another man, near Joe's Diner
to ask for directions.
The three feigned assistance,
but soon reached for the man's
wallet and briefcase and began to
strike his face and body. The man,
who had just arrived to St. John
on the last passenger ferry, said he
tried to defend himself, but could
not free his hands.
The robbers pounced on the


man, ferociously punching and
kicking him, leaving him severely
beaten. He suffered a sprained leg
and ankle, fractured nose, frac-
tured eye socket and several cuts
on his head. Doctors believe he
will need reconstructive surgery
on his eye socket.
The man told St. John
Tradewinds that after the beating
he was fading in and out of con-
sciousness. He stumbled out of the
car park area where the attack took
place and then collapsed near the
FirstBank lot, where the police of-
ficer discovered him and began to
perform first aid to stop the bleed-
ing.
His injuries were initially treat-
ed at the Myrah Keating Smith
Community Health Center. Hospi-
tal officials said the tourist rejected
a transfer to Schneider Hospital,
and he left that night without fur-
ther treatment. He was angry and
wanted to go to his villa, be with
his family and get some rest, ac-

JESS Students Get Straight Talk About


Gangs, STDs, AIDS, Teen Pregnancy


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Julius E. Sprauve School ninth
graders looking ahead to high
school next year got a dose of re-
ality last week about HIV/AIDS,
STDs, gang violence and teen
pregnancy.
The annual "Let's Talk" con-
ference is a day-long collabora-
tive learning experience between
JESS, St. John Women's Health
and the V.I. Department of Health,
organized by the school's athletic
department chairperson Lecia
Richmond, principal Mario Fran-
cis and Morris deCastro Clinic ad-
ministrator Ronnie Jones.

V.I. Police Department officer
Clayton Brown told students about
the dangers of gang affiliation
while registered nurse Jane Cook
discussed living a germ free life.
After a lunch provided by Wes-
tin, Terrence Joseph of the terri-
tory's child support enforcement
division entertained students while
sharing sobering facts about teen
pregnancy, paternity and child
support.
There are at least 1,000 cases
of unwed mothers who claim "un-
known father" on their children's


birth certificates, explained Jo-
seph.
"This is a huge problem when
the child can have a hereditary dis-
ease from the father's side and we
know nothing about that," Joseph
said.
While people are going to have
sex, the JESS students should pri-
oritize their lives, according to the
child support official.
"There is a time and place for
everything," said Joseph. "You
need to stay in school, go to col-
lege and have a rewarding and
meaningful relationship with your
partner. Don't jump into things."
"We have too many kids having
kids these days," Joseph said.

Friends of VINP Welcome Cavanaugh


As New Development Director


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
With a background in publication, marketing and
fund raising, Noreen Cavanaugh brings a wealth of
experience to the Friends of VI. National Park.
The Massachusetts native took over as the group's
development director last month and with her entre-
preneurial spirit, is a perfect fit for the non-profit or-
ganization. While Cavanaugh has visited St. John for
years - her sister is long-time resident Irene Levine
- this is her first time living on island.
"I came down to visit my sister right before and
after the Christmas holiday," said Cavanaugh. "I was
in a transition then and was ready for a move. At that
time I hadn't heard of the job opening yet and I didn't
want to move down here unless I had a professional
job doing something that would bring all of my skills
together in one place."
Cavanaugh was already back in Massachusetts
when she got a phone call about the Friends' job
opening, she explained.
"I got a call from one of the members of the board
of directors who said 'this job has your name all over
it,'" said Cavanaugh. "From that point on, I pursued
the job."
After a telephone interview, Cavanaugh was hired
and flew down to Love City for a Friends board meet-
ing in early April. After the meeting, she returned to
the states, packed up her house, donated what she
couldn't pack, shipped down her car and was back in
Love City by mid-April.
As development director for Friends of VINP, Ca-
vanaugh is indeed drawing upon her skills from her
extensive background as an entrepreneur.
"This job incorporates everything I do - fund
raising, grant writing, public relations and event
planning," she said. "Previously I owned a women's
magazine and I've been an entrepreneur all of my life.
I also taught marketing at several colleges in the Mid-
west and I owned a marketing consulting company."
Cavanaugh's experience also covers government
and non-profit work, she added.
"During the time I was doing marketing, I was a
delegate to the White House Conference for Small
Businesses," Cavanaugh said. "As a result of that,
I headed up the legislative committee on re-writing
contracts for the government for small businesses so
business owners could understand what the contracts
were about."
"I've had experience working for the government
and government agencies," she said. "Most recently,
however, I headed up a non-profit organization that
raised money for cystic fibrosis and cerebral palsy
research."
Cavanaugh, along with former New England Pa-
triots half back Bobby Leo, hosted several success-
ful Great American Home Run contest fund raisers
through the Boston mayor's office, she explained.
One thing Cavanaugh definitely brings to Friends
is her true trail-blazing spirit, which she inherited
from her father, explained the group's new develop-
ment director.
"I come at this job with an entrepreneurial perspec-
tive, even though it's a nonprofit," said the Friends'
new development director. "That's who I am and who
I've always been. My father was an entrepreneur and


St. John Tradewinds News Photo by Jaime Elliott


Noreen Cavanaugh


he was my first mentor."
"I think I really grabbed on to his spirit and that
is something that I really bring with me," said Ca-
vanaugh.
Although admitting that settling into island life is
a transition, Cavanaugh is enjoying living on St. John
as well as the atmosphere in the Friends office.
"It's a bit of social shock, but it sure beats rush hour
traffic in Boston," she said. "Honestly, I feel blessed. I
already feel very accepted and embraced by the island
and the people here."
Cavanaugh is wasting no time getting busy as
Friends' development director. She's already fund
raising for this summer's eco-camps at the VI. Envi-
ronmental Resource Station, which Friends sponsors.
"The eco-camps are such a wonderful opportunity
for the kids here to experience the park," said Ca-
vanaugh. "This year, we're also adding an older age
group for kids from 13 to 16 to stay for four nights
and five days."
The development director is also fund raising for
an archaeology museum planned to be constructed at
Cinnamon Bay and the VINP's accessible trails proj-
ect which aims to install a boardwalk at the Francis
Bay walking trail to allow people with mobility issues
to use the area.
Cavanaugh is also launching a new program for
residents who aren't yet members of Friends of VINP,
she explained.
"We'll be offering free membership for one year
for people who live on island and aren't members,"
said Cavanaugh. "One reason we're doing this is that
we'd like more local people to become familiar with
what we do and what we're about."
Membership benefits include a discount at the
Friends store in Mongoose Junction, as well as in-
centives from other island businesses, Cavanaugh
explained.
"This is an opportunity to open the door for people
to explore what the Friends is all about," she said.
To donate to Friends or for more information about
signing up for a year's free membership, call Ca-
vanaugh at 779-4940.

St. John Tradewinds
Friends of V.I. National Park re-
minds all residents to gear up for
the 6th Annual Beach-to-Beach
Power Swim which is next Sun-
day, May 24.
This is a challenging event
and all swimmers should be well-
prepared. Preparation includes
training at swimming the course
distances, understanding the com-
petition rules and being familiar
with the course.
Pre-race Meeting
A pre-race meeting will be at
Maho Bay Camps starting at 5 p.m.
May 23 in the main pavilion. While
attendance at the pre-race meeting
is not mandatory, all swimmers are
encouraged to attend - especially
first-time competitors.
At the pre-race meeting swim-
mers can do a preliminary check
in and receive their T-shirts and
goodie bags. For those who have
not yet registered, late registration
is available. This will be followed
by a detailed briefing on the com-
petition rules and the course de-
scription.
The race will start at 8 a.m. at
the north end of Maho Bay beach,
near the dinghy channel. All swim-
mers must be checked in and num-
bered by 7:30 a.m. There will be
a short briefing on the competition
rules and the course description -
but not as detailed as the briefing
at the pre-race meeting.
Shuttle Service
Competitors are advised to park
either in Cruz Bay or at Hawksnest
Bay and take advantage of the free
shuttles which will run from Cruz
Bay to Maho Bay. The first one
will depart at 6:20 a.m. and the last
one will depart at about 6:50 a.m.
Shuttles will start at the dock
in Cruz Bay, stop at the National
Park Service Maintenance yard
near Mongoose Junction, Hawk-
snest Bay, Cinnamon Bay and on
to Maho Bay. Shuttle vans can be
flagged down anywhere along the
route.
The last free shuttle will leave

awards ceremony
In addition to awards for the top
three finishers and first place age
group finishers in each event and

fearing their Team Challenge Tro-
phy and Award.
The Trophy is a "travelling tro-
phy" which stays with the winners
for one year and is then conveyed
to the new winning team the fol-
lowing year. The award is $250.
The trophy and award will go to
the team with the best cumulative
time of their three top long course
solo finishers. Teams may be
members of an established team,
or an ad hoc team of at least three
swimmers.
A competitor who wishes to
compete for this honor should ad-
vise Friends officials at the regis-
tration/pre-check in on May 23 at
Maho Camps or at check in Sun-
day morning on the beach.
Awards Ceremony
A beach BBQ and awards cer-
emony will be at Oppenheimer
Beach following the Beach-to-
Beach Power Swim. The beach
BBQ will start at about 11 a.m.
and the Awards Ceremony will
start at about noon. Competitors,
volunteers and the general public

and Awards Ceremony. Food and
drinks will be available and shut-
tles will provide transport between

O'dege Sails To Second Commodore's Cup Victory


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
About 30 boats from St. John and St. Thom-
as braved the steady winds on Saturday and
Sunday, May 9 and 10, for the 10th Annual
Commodore's Cup Regatta.
A fund raiser for the Kids And The Sea, St.
John, youth sailing program, the event was
hosted by all three of the island's yacht clubs
- Nauti Yacht Club, St. John Yacht Club and
Coral Bay Yacht Club. The fun-filled week-
end included a live band and an entertaining
awards ceremony both at Skinny Legs, which
is home base for the races each year.
Making the regatta even more exciting, the
Commodore's Cup winner is decided after
the captain of the winning boat in each class
squares off in a laser race.
After two days of exciting racing, J Walk-
ing from St. Thomas won the PHRF Spinnaker
class, O 'dege from St. John took the Pursuit
class and Zing, also fom St. John, won the
PHRF Non-spinnaker class.
The captains of each vessel jumped in the
little lasers for a short course in Coral Bay har-
bor. It was a close race with some equipment
problems for one boat, but in the end O 'dege
captain Sara O'Neill crossed the finish line
first for her second consecutive Commodore's
Cup win.
Long-time Coral Bay resident and fisher-
woman Kathy Roberts won the coveted raffle
prize - a 10-foot Carib dinghy and 15 horse-
power Yamaha.
With T-shirt sales, registration, raffle tickets
sales, and funds from a breakfast cooked by
Skinny Legs chef Phillip Titre, the festivities
raked in more than $9,000 for KATS St. John.


Steady winds and high seas helped O'dege
win the 10th Annual Commodore's Cup.

American Legion Softball

and T-Ball League Underway
St. John Tradewinds
The new American Legion softball and t-ball season opened
on Saturday, May 9, with a tremendously enthusiastic crowd with
even more enthusiasm from the players.
The 11 a.m. t-ball game between the Marlins (yellow team)
and the Dolphins (green team) featured 4- to 8-year-olds with
some great hitting talent. The excitement was infectious as the
crowd cheered every play.
The well-coached children were terrific on offense and de-
fense and all involved had a fun opening day. Thanks to Damara
and Jay for being so talented and extra thanks to all the parents
for being involved!
The 1 p.m. softball game had the Barracudas (Royal Blue)
facing the Sharks (Navy Blue) with the Barracudas coming out
on top of this very exciting opener. For the first few weeks the
coaches will act as pitchers and will field coach until the players
are fully trained. Coaches Preston and Cindy are doing a terrific
job.
Thanks also to the parents for setting up a hot dog, chips and
soda stand. Every Saturday they will be out there providing re-
freshments. All proceeds will go toward the program through a
special parents' fund.
All games will start at 11 a.m. each Saturday through June 27.
The American Legion hopes that everyone will come out to enjoy
the games and cheer on the kids.
On May 23, the public is invited to support the Fourth Annual
Javon Jade Alfred Memorial Fun Day where games and refresh-
ments will be available from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Part of the festivi-
ties will be the t-ball and softball games. Thanks to DeverelleAl-
fred, The St. John Rotary and all the supporters for providing this
great community event.
T-ball is now full but there are still openings for softball play-
ers. Contact Paul Devine at 693-9410 or 514-6615 for more in-
formation.

Erosion Control Strategies for Fish Bay Waters


St. John Tradewinds
Dr. Carlos Ramos-Scharr6n,
Research Fellow at the Univer-
sity of Texas at Austin, has been
conducting research and working
with the Estate Fish Bay Owners'
Association to control erosion and
sedimentation of the bay for many
years.
His most recent project in Fish
Bay has been profiled and cited
by the Rainforest Alliance in their
May, 2009 Eco-Index of outstand-
ing accomplishments. For more
information go to www.eco-index.
org.
The Rainforest Alliance is an
organization devoted to working
with countries around the world
to develop and implement envi-
ronmentally responsible and eco-
nomically viable standards. Dr
Ramos-Scharr6n worked under the
auspices of the Island Resources
Foundation's director Bruce Pot-
ter.
IRF has been a Fish Bay pro-
ponent for decades working in the
past with the VI Islands Resource
Conservation and Development
Council and the staff of the De-
partment of Planning and Natural
Resources.
The Fish Bay project, which be-
gan in 2006, demonstrated the use
of specialized tools to identify, pri-
oritize and implement best man-
agement practices for controlling
land-based sediment flowing into
the bay.
While this project has been

Studies Program along with sev-


eral graduate students have been
gathering data since 2007 from
bays on St. John including Fish
Bay, Great Lameshur Bay and
Reef Bay.
A portion of Coral Bay was
added to their data collection ar-
eas in 2008. Research objectives
are to demonstrate the impact that
sediment has on coral reefs by
comparing undeveloped bays with
developed bays. The data collec-
tion efforts will resume in August
2009.

JESS Players Heading to Kenny Smith's

Basketball Camp This Summer


By Jaime Elliott
St. John Tradewinds
Despite highly-publicized sto-
ries regarding the deplorable state
of the territory's public school
sports programs, Love City
ballers enjoyed a full season and
are looking forward to improving
their skills this summer.
The Julius E. Sprauve School's
junior varsity basketball team
wrapped up their season a few
months ago and five players are
heading to the hard court mecca
of North Carolina this summer to
work on their game.
While the team didn't have
a winning season - they ended
with a one and five record - Le-
cia Richmond, athletic depart-
ment chairperson for JESS and
Guy Benjamin School, saw po-
tential in the players.
"The kids had a great attitude
and I saw a need for them to con-
tinue improving their game," said
Richmond.
When Richmond and JESS
basketball coach Patrick Hen-
dricks heard about Kenny Smith's


Carolina Basketball Camp at the
University of North Carolina, the
two knew it would be the perfect
venue for their budding ball play-
ers.
After getting the go-ahead
from JESS principal Mario Fran-
cis, Hendricks solicited donations
and - thanks to generous com-
munity support - was able to
raise $7,723, enough to cover five
full scholarships, explained Rich-
mond.
The five students will stay
on the UNC campus during the
week-long camp and will be busy
from breakfast at 7 a.m. to lights
out at 11 p.m. During the day, the
students will take part in condi-
tioning instruction, guest lectures,
practice games, free throw con-
tests and one-on-one contests.
At the camp, the JESS students
will learn from one of the most
distinguished figures in basket-
ball. Smith, a graduate of UNC,
won the NBA championships in
both 1994 and 1995 as a guard
with the Houston Rockets and is
currently a studio analyst on both


TBS and TNT.
Smith leads all of the instruc-
tion and demonstrations him-
self and focuses on fundamental
skills, sportsmanship and team
concepts. While working on their
court skills, the JESS students will
also be gaining useful life lessons
during Kenny Smith's Carolina
Basketball Camp.
"The camp emphasizes the im-
portance of maintaining a positive
attitude, staying in school, and
saying no to drugs and alcohol,"
according to the website carolina-
basketballcamp.com. "These core
values help translate and enhance
a sense of self-confidence. The
Kenny Smith Carolina Basketball
Camp's mission is to help youth
learn the productive mechanisms
of team sports, teamwork, disci-
pline, cooperation, setting goals,
strong work ethics and establish-
ing moral values."
Hendricks and Richmond are
still accepting donations to help
defray transportation costs for the
students. To donate contact Rich-
mond at JESS at 776-6336.

Dear Attorney Griffiths (and et. al.)
Below please find the reasons we deleted the last
part of your letter expressing your view that The
Daily News and Senator Hill and the Senate Majority
were unfair to Police Commissioner James McCall
"because we waited until he was off island" to call
for his removal.
I cannot speak for Senator Hill or what he and the
other senators knew or did not know, but I can speak
for The Daily News:
The editorial was written on Saturday May 9. It
was copyedited and placed on the Editorial page on
Sunday afternoon and was printed late Sunday for the
Monday, May 11, edition.
The Daily News did not know Commissioner Mc-
Call was off-island and did not receive notice of that
until late Monday. Ironically, reporters were in con-
tact continually with the Police Department and its
information office over the weekend, as there was a
homicide and other crimes for which the reporters
were seeking details. At no time was the fact of Com-
missioner McCall's absence from the territory men-
tioned to us.
Your remark that was deleted made an incorrect as-
sumption that we knew something and then criticized


us based on that incorrect assumption.
That was unfair, perhaps as unfair as what you per-
ceive that we were doing.
We did not delete your remark to "protect" the
newspaper or senators, we deleted it because it was
unfair and we do that in all letters where we discern
that the letter writer is attacking based on assumption,
rumor or mistaken understanding rather than actual
fact.
To be clear: It is a fact that we did not know Com-
missioner McCall was off-island until Monday night
when we were notified about who was acting com-
missioner.
It is a fact that we do not know, even now, exactly
when he left or when he will return.
It is a fact, also, that we have been in communi-
cation quite often with commissioners of all depart-
ments, as well as the governor, when they are off-
island. Nowadays, cell phones and emails mean that
leaving the island is not the same as leaving the job.
I regret that you were disappointed with our han-
dling of your letter.
Lowe Davis,
Executive Editor
V.I. Daily News


Receiving an Outpouring of Love In Time of Need


Editor,
This island has had to deal with a few violent ex-
periences this year, but what has made St. John a safe
haven in the world is the people who live here and
their genuine concern for each other.
I am here to tell you that love still exists on St. John,
stronger than ever. When my daughter almost died last
week, I felt my friends reach out to help, but what I
experienced was so much more than that.
I turned to see people, some I did not even know
well, love my daughter beside me. People reached out
and lifted her up and made her feel loved like she was


their very own child, and gave me a feeling of support
that I am so grateful for that I wanted to say Thank
You.
As a single Mom I thought I would have to face
things alone, only to find I have a huge family - an
entire island. Thank you to the Myrah Keating Smith
Community Health Center for your professional and
loving care. Thank you Tim and Heidi Coyle for being
there. Thank you St. John for every phone call.
Violence can not exist here surrounded by so much
love.

God's blessings to you. Special thanks to Davis Fu-


neral Home for your patience and wonderful care. All

Clarification:

In the May 11-17, 2009 issue of St. John Tradewinds, a public notice was published indicating "St.
John Homes, Inc. land is not, and has not, been for sale." This paid notice was placed by an unau-
thorized person and is incorrect. The Board of Directors of St John Homes, Inc. has advised St. John
Tradewinds some of their land assets are indeed for sale.



St. John Tradewinds' Keeping Track data comes from the V.I. Police Department's Leander Jurgen
Command Incident Log, an unofficial record of calls to the station, reports and arrests on St. John.

Letters to St. John Tradewinds


Changing Content of Letter Compromises Integrity


To the Virgin Islands' Newspapers,
The purpose of a Letter to the Editor section in print
publication is to provide the public with a forum. The
primary intent of my letter to the editor concerning
V.I. Police Department Commissioner James McCall
was to bring attention that it is unfair to publish de-
rogatory commentary when it is well known that pub-
lic figure is off-island.
If a newspaper finds something objectionable, they
generally reserve the right to delete the objectionable
comments. The only arguable objectionable comment
is the last sentence. Instead, the Daily News published
my comments, but deleted the major point of taking
an unfair advantage. This point does not qualify for
the type of "objectionable" material that is subject to
deletion under general editorial guidelines.
A newspaper compromises its own integrity when
it deletes commentary simply because it is contrary


to the newspaper's political objectives. My full com-
ments are below.
This is in response to the Daily News Editorial of
May 11, 2009, and the Guest Editorials with respect
to Police Commissioner James McCall.
Deep-rooted corruption and/or labor issues are not
easily eradicated or resolved. Further, the fault does
not rest with one man, but every police officer who
witnesses such, but keeps quiet. Likewise, as the
economy has gone south, the crime has rapidly esca-
lated stateside as well as here.
What bothers me the most, however, is that these
Editors and Guest Editors wait until the Commission-
er is off-island to publish these disparaging editorials.
Where is the integrity in that? It's kind of like shoot-
ing a man in the back, isn't it?

Senator Hill, Majority Calls for McCall's Resignation


Editor,
I speak as President of the 28th Legislature, and
with full support from Majority Senators Neville
James, Craig Barshinger, Carlton Dowe, Wayne
James, Sammuel Sanes, Patrick Sprauve and Michael
Thurland.
After long, deliberate examination and careful
analysis of the recent rise in crime, and the absolute
inability to control gun violence, it is with a heavy
heart that I call upon the Commissioner of Police to
submit his resignation and I urge the Governor to ac-
cept it.
This is a grave situation we find ourselves in and
our decision was arrived at after exhaustive discus-
sions with local organizations and community lead-
ers. It is a fact that the Virgin Islands faces serious
problems with crime and it is a fact that the current
Virgin Islands Police Department administration is
unable to get control of it.
There has been an increase in the overall criminal
activity.
There has been an increase in gun-related crime.
There has been an increase in property crime.
Foremost, there has been a dramatic increase in
open-air gun battles which leaves Virgin Islanders
feeling that our community is not safe.
We have come to the conclusion that we need new
leadership and a new direction in crime prevention.


As with any professional business organization,
when the organization is failing at every level, one
has no choice but to replace the leadership.
I am reminded of the promises made at the con-
firmation of the present Police Commissioner who
ensured the community that a change in the direction
of our Police Department would come within the first
year. It is evident that he has not been able to meet
those goals.
I believe that Commissioner James McCall is an
honest individual and a man of integrity who has had
a commendable career in law enforcement. However,
I believe the Police Department of the Virgin Islands
needs to move in a new direction, with new ideas,
new initiatives and new programs.
We are calling on all of our police officers to rise
to the occasion and to use every ounce of their energy
and expertise to help stop this criminal assault on the
community. I am also calling on all of our judges to
work in concert with the VIPD to ensure that known
criminals are not returned to the streets.
We appreciate the efforts of Commissioner McCall
and his service to the people of the Virgin Islands;
however, we believe the Commissioner must clear the
way for the next generation of leadership for the Vir-
gin Islands Police Department.
Louis P. Hill,
Senate President, 28th Legislature

By Jaime Elliott St. John Tradewinds The price of riding the ferry to Red Hook will not increase for at least 60 days, if at all. At a Tuesday evening, May 12, meeting before a packed house of about 80 people at the St. John Legislature building, V.I. Public Services Commission members voted to stay their order, passed last month, to increase most ferry fares for runs between St. John and St. Thomas. On April 1, PSC members voted to increase the adult one-way fare from St. John to Red Hook from $5 to $7, and to decrease the oneway fare from St. John to Charlotte Amalie from $10 to $8. Varlack Ventures and Transportation Services, the ferry companies which have the exclusive franchise for the runs, were to implement the rate changes at the end of the May. There will be no action now, however, until at least mid-July in order to give the PSC time to take a closer look at both PSC members will select a hear ing examiner at their next regular meeting, scheduled for May 19 on St. Thomas. The 60-day stay will allow the examiner to schedule public hearings and answer questions raised by the V.I. Unity Day Group regarding the franchisees’ On the heels of the PSC’s April ruling, members of the Unity Day eration of the order which listed a number of issues with the ferry claiming loans and payments to a condo time share from company coffers. The group’s petition alleges that the PSC’s order effectively set unfair, unjust and discriminatory rates, making the ruling illegal. Testifying before the PSC on Tuesday night, Unity Day Group member Nydia Lewis said the rate hikes are not fair to St. John residents and provide more than the legally allowed eight percent rate of return. “These new rates will cause undue hardship for residents of St. John,” said Lewis. “The approved rates are not reasonable and cer tainly not fair. They allow for more than the eight percent rate of return which makes them against the law.” Under the approved rate strucwould shell out $70 just for transportation to and from St. Thomas, explained Unity Day Group mem ber Myrtle Barry. “We don’t have a choice, if we want to go to the movies, to a graduation or an event in St. Thomas, we have to ride the ferry,” said Barry. called for the ferry companies to receive federal funding, subsidizing the rates they need to collect to stay in business while not putting an undue hardship on the riding public. “We need to push to strike a balance for the ferry companies to receive assistance and not have the burden weighing solely on the riders,” said Stacie January, a Unity Day Group member and commut er. “We need to work together to get the companies subsidies and not tax the public.” There are federal funds available for the ferry companies through mass transit subsidy programs, but the companies themselves can not apply for them, explained Lorelei Monsanto, the Unity Day Group’s president. “Through our research, we’ve found several sources available to assist ferries and PSC to make headway on getting the subsidies,” Monsanto said. “The ferries can’t request the funds themselves, govrequest the fees stay at $5 until the PSC can verify our research and answer our questions.” While supporting the Unity Day Group’s efforts, the ferry compa nies need the increased fares to Ferron, the companies’ lawyer. “Ferry boat operators have been shouldering a massive burden and the public has been shouldering a massive burden for too long,” said Ferron. “By law this is a government responsibility contracted out. To return the rate to $5 would undermine the need to increase the rate in order the for ferry compa nies to stay in business.” “The PSC is in a lose-lose situation since the ferry companies can not operate under the current rate and the people can not stand the rate increase,” said Ferron. “It’s time to approach the partner who is not here — the government.” Granting the ferry companies’ increase will only add to a drop in ridership, according to Sherry-Ann Francis, a St. John resident who commutes to work in St. Thomas. “The decrease in ridership is due to the increase in the rates,” said Francis. “Fewer people ride the ferry now because the fares are high. If less people ride the ferry because of this increase will you raise the rates again?” PSC member Verne David applauded the public participation in the matter, but wondered where everyone was when the commis sion was making their decision in April. “You have some valid points, but where were you earlier?” said David. “I applaud you guys for being here, but you must take greater responsibility to express your concerns before we make a decision.” The PSC will publicize dates of future meetings, which members said they will make an effort to host on St. John.

Sprauve School and Guy Benjamin PTA meeting — gang violence is increasing in local schools and children as young as elementary school-age are involved in gang activity. Campbell, the St. Thomas/St. John District’s School Safety Manager, shared information on how to identify gang members with the nearly 100 parents, students and teachers at the meeting. “Everyone in the territory needs to know about gangs,” said Campbell. “We have to take it seriously. We’re losing too many of our young men to violence.” Campbell just returned from training in the nation’s former most dangerous city, Camden, New Jer sey, which is seeing gang activity similar to what’s happening in the territory, the safety manager explained. A gang — or “massive,” as youths say in the Virgin Islands — consists of three or more people involved in negative and criminal actions. Locally, the formation of gangs has led to segregation on school campuses. There’s a bathroom at Ivanna Eudora Kean High School for students from St. John only, according to Campbell. Virgin Islands youth have formed their own gangs, including the Bloods, Crips and Latin Kings, based on what is happening in the states. “Our students, for whatever reason, brought it to the territory,” said Campbell. Gangs are so active that local community groups must remove schools like IEK and Bertha C. Boschulte Middle School two to three times a month. Campbell has seen IEK, dramatically increase during his 16 months on the job, he explained. “The government and police force have been in denial,” said Campbell. “They’re starting to see the light.” way into elementary schools. Campbell shared photos of Bloods-relatat Lockhart Elementary School. Younger children are entering the gang world through older siblings and older kids in their neighbor hood, Campbell explained. Parents can help prevent their children from taking the path to violence by being more involved in their lives, according to Campbell. “Lack of parental involvement is the biggest factor in kids getting involved in gangs,” he said. “One of the biggest things we don’t do is listen to the youth. Hear them out.” Even Love City is not immune to gang activity — a bench at JESS, just outside the cafeteria where the PTA meeting convened, is tagged in the Crips’ favored color, red, with the words “bang bang.” “These youths are not stupid,” said Campbell. “We have to take off the blinders, parents. We want to lay blame on all kind of people and not look in the mirror — that’s why we have this problem.” Parents should look for warning signs of possible gang involvement in their children, including living in a high risk neighborhood; showfamily and school; showing little to no interest in school and using hand signals or having a nickname. Schools are making an effort to cut down on gang activity, including the gang symbols displayed on students’ backpacks and notebooks, Campbell explained. Parents should not allow their children to write anything on their backpacks other than their full, given name and the school they attend. “I’m talking from my heart to get my people on the right page,” said Campbell.Gangs Becoming Prevalent in Schools, Youth Violence Increasing St. John Tradewinds News Photo by Andrea Milam St. Thomas-St. John District School Safety Manager Lavelle Campbell delivers straight talk to nearly 100 students, teachers and parents about the prevalence of gang activity in territorial schools at a joint JESS and GBS PTA meeting. Gang activity and violence is increasing in local schools and even affects children as young as elementary school, Campbell told the crowd.

While Jones and Powell are the only two suspects arrested in connection with the crime, witnesses told police other men aided in the robbery and attack during which the assailants made off with the Tennessee man’s wallet.

The man, who had just arrived to St. John on the last passenger ferry, said he tried to defend himself, but could not free his hands. The robbers pounced on the man, ferociously punching and kicking him, leaving him severely beaten.

Sprauve School ninth graders looking ahead to high school next year got a dose of reality last week about HIV/AIDS, STDs, gang violence and teen pregnancy. The annual “Let’s Talk” conference is a day-long collaborative learning experience between JESS, St. John Women’s Health and the V.I. Department of Health, organized by the school’s athletic department chairperson Lecia Richmond, principal Mario Francis and Morris deCastro Clinic administrator Ronnie Jones. This year’s program took place on Thursday, May 14, at the Westin Resort and Villas where students heard from police, health Clayton Brown told students about while registered nurse Jane Cook discussed living a germ free life. After a lunch provided by Westin, Terrence Joseph of the territory’s child support enforcement division entertained students while sharing sobering facts about teen pregnancy, paternity and child support. There are at least 1,000 cases of unwed mothers who claim “unknown father” on their children’s seph. “This is a huge problem when the child can have a hereditary disease from the father’s side and we know nothing about that,” Joseph said. While people are going to have sex, the JESS students should prioritize their lives, according to the “There is a time and place for everything,” said Joseph. “You need to stay in school, go to college and have a rewarding and meaningful relationship with your partner.

By Jaime Elliott St. John Tradewinds With a background in publication, marketing and fund raising, Noreen Cavanaugh brings a wealth of experience to the Friends of V.I. National Park. The Massachusetts native took over as the group’s development director last month and with her entre ganization. While Cavanaugh has visited St. John for years — her sister is long-time resident Irene Levine “I came down to visit my sister right before and after the Christmas holiday,” said Cavanaugh. “I was in a transition then and was ready for a move. At that time I hadn’t heard of the job opening yet and I didn’t want to move down here unless I had a professional job doing something that would bring all of my skills together in one place.” Cavanaugh was already back in Massachusetts when she got a phone call about the Friends’ job opening, she explained. “I got a call from one of the members of the board of directors who said ‘this job has your name all over it,’” said Cavanaugh. “From that point on, I pursued the job.” After a telephone interview, Cavanaugh was hired ing in early April. After the meeting, she returned to the states, packed up her house, donated what she couldn’t pack, shipped down her car and was back in Love City by mid-April. As development director for Friends of VINP, Cavanaugh is indeed drawing upon her skills from her extensive background as an entrepreneur. “This job incorporates everything I do — fund raising, grant writing, public relations and event planning,” she said. “Previously I owned a women’s magazine and I’ve been an entrepreneur all of my life. I also taught marketing at several colleges in the Midwest and I owned a marketing consulting company.” Cavanaugh’s experience also covers government “During the time I was doing marketing, I was a delegate to the White House Conference for Small Businesses,” Cavanaugh said. “As a result of that, I headed up the legislative committee on re-writing contracts for the government for small businesses so business owners could understand what the contracts were about.” “I’ve had experience working for the government and government agencies,” she said. “Most recently, research.” Cavanaugh, along with former New England Patriots half back Bobby Leo, hosted several successful Great American Home Run contest fund raisers is her true trail-blazing spirit, which she inherited from her father, explained the group’s new develop ment director. “I come at this job with an entrepreneurial perspecnew development director. “That’s who I am and who I’ve always been. My father was an entrepreneur and “I think I really grabbed on to his spirit and that is something that I really bring with me,” said Cavanaugh. Although admitting that settling into island life is a transition, Cavanaugh is enjoying living on St. John “It’s a bit of social shock, but it sure beats rush hour already feel very accepted and embraced by the island and the people here.” Cavanaugh is wasting no time getting busy as Friends’ development director. She’s already fund raising for this summer’s eco-camps at the V.I. Environmental Resource Station, which Friends sponsors. “The eco-camps are such a wonderful opportunity for the kids here to experience the park,” said Cavanaugh. “This year, we’re also adding an older age group for kids from 13 to 16 to stay for four nights The development director is also fund raising for an archaeology museum planned to be constructed at Cinnamon Bay and the VINP’s accessible trails project which aims to install a boardwalk at the Francis Bay walking trail to allow people with mobility issues to use the area. Cavanaugh is also launching a new program for residents who aren’t yet members of Friends of VINP, she explained. “We’ll be offering free membership for one year for people who live on island and aren’t members,” said Cavanaugh. “One reason we’re doing this is that we’d like more local people to become familiar with what we do and what we’re about.” Friends store in Mongoose Junction, as well as incentives from other island businesses, Cavanaugh explained. “This is an opportunity to open the door for people to explore what the Friends is all about,” she said.

St. John Tradewinds, May 18-24, 2009 13 JESS Players Heading to Kenny Smith’s Basketball Camp This SummerBy Jaime Elliott St. John Tradewinds Despite highly-publicized stories regarding the deplorable state of the territory’s public school sports programs, Love City ballers enjoyed a full season and are looking forward to improving their skills this summer. The Julius E. Sprauve School’s junior varsity basketball team wrapped up their season a few heading to the hard court mecca of North Carolina this summer to work on their game. While the team didn’t have a winning season — they ended cia Richmond, athletic department chairperson for JESS and Guy Benjamin School, saw potential in the players. “The kids had a great attitude and I saw a need for them to continue improving their game,” said Richmond. When Richmond and JESS basketball coach Patrick Hendricks heard about Kenny Smith’s Carolina Basketball Camp at the University of North Carolina, the two knew it would be the perfect venue for their budding ball players. After getting the go-ahead from JESS principal Mario Francis, Hendricks solicited donations and — thanks to generous community support — was able to full scholarships, explained Richmond. on the UNC campus during the week-long camp and will be busy from breakfast at 7 a.m. to lights out at 11 p.m. During the day, the students will take part in conditioning instruction, guest lectures, practice games, free throw contests and one-on-one contests. At the camp, the JESS students will learn from one of the most ball. Smith, a graduate of UNC, won the NBA championships in both 1994 and 1995 as a guard with the Houston Rockets and is currently a studio analyst on both TBS and TNT. Smith leads all of the instruction and demonstrations himself and focuses on fundamental skills, sportsmanship and team concepts. While working on their court skills, the JESS students will also be gaining useful life lessons during Kenny Smith’s Carolina Basketball Camp. “The camp emphasizes the importance of maintaining a positive attitude, staying in school, and saying no to drugs and alcohol,” according to the website carolinabasketballcamp.com. “These core values help translate and enhance Kenny Smith Carolina Basketball Camp’s mission is to help youth learn the productive mechanisms of team sports, teamwork, discipline, cooperation, setting goals, strong work ethics and establishing moral values.” Hendricks and Richmond are still accepting donations to help defray transportation costs for the students.

Police Department’s Leander Jurgen 14 St. John Tradewinds, May 18-24, 2009 part of your letter expressing your view that The Daily News and Senator Hill and the Senate Majority were unfair to Police Commissioner James McCall “because we waited until he was off island” to call for his removal. I cannot speak for Senator Hill or what he and the other senators knew or did not know, but I can speak for The Daily News: The editorial was written on Saturday May 9. It was copyedited and placed on the Editorial page on Sunday afternoon and was printed late Sunday for the Monday, May 11, edition. The Daily News did not know Commissioner McCall was off-island and did not receive notice of that until late Monday. Ironically, reporters were in contact continually with the Police Department and its homicide and other crimes for which the reporters were seeking details. At no time was the fact of Commissioner McCall’s absence from the territory mentioned to us. Your remark that was deleted made an incorrect assumption that we knew something and then criticized us based on that incorrect assumption. That was unfair, perhaps as unfair as what you per ceive that we were doing. We did not delete your remark to “protect” the newspaper or senators, we deleted it because it was unfair and we do that in all letters where we discern that the letter writer is attacking based on assumption, rumor or mistaken understanding rather than actual fact. To be clear: It is a fact that we did not know Commissioner McCall was off-island until Monday night missioner. It is a fact that we do not know, even now, exactly when he left or when he will return. It is a fact, also, that we have been in communi cation quite often with commissioners of all depart ments, as well as the governor, when they are offisland. Nowadays, cell phones and emails mean that leaving the island is not the same as leaving the job. I regret that you were disappointed with our handling of your letter. Lowe Davis, Executive Editor V.I. Daily News Editor, Many thanks to everyone who paid tribute to Ina Matthias-George whether in your thoughts, money, transportation, and most importantly, through your prayers. From our family to yours, our deepest thanks and God’s blessings to you. Special thanks to Davis Funeral Home for your patience and wonderful care. All donations can be made in memory of Ina MatthiasGeorge to the Calvary Baptist Church building fund. Contact Geneva George-Paris and Henry Powell, Sr. at 776-6849. Sincerely, The Family of Ina Matthias-GeorgeDaily News Defends Editing Letter In the May 11-17, 2009 issue of St. John Tradewinds, a public notice was published indicating “St. John Homes, Inc. land is not, and has not, been for sale.” This paid notice was placed by an unauthorized person and is incorrect. The Board of Directors of St John Homes, Inc. has advised St. John Tradewinds some of their land assets are indeed for sale.Editor, This island has had to deal with a few violent experiences this year, but what has made St. John a safe haven in the world is the people who live here and their genuine concern for each other. I am here to tell you that love still exists on St. John, stronger than ever. When my daughter almost died last week, I felt my friends reach out to help, but what I experienced was so much more than that. I turned to see people, some I did not even know well, love my daughter beside me. People reached out and lifted her up and made her feel loved like she was their very own child, and gave me a feeling of support that I am so grateful for that I wanted to say Thank You. As a single Mom I thought I would have to face entire island. Thank you to the Myrah Keating Smith Community Health Center for your professional and loving care. Thank you Tim and Heidi Coyle for being there. Thank you St. John for every phone call. Violence can not exist here surrounded by so much love.

Editor, I speak as President of the 28th Legislature, and with full support from Majority Senators Neville James, Craig Barshinger, Carlton Dowe, Wayne James, Sammuel Sanes, Patrick Sprauve and Michael Thurland. After long, deliberate examination and careful analysis of the recent rise in crime, and the absolute inability to control gun violence, it is with a heavy heart that I call upon the Commissioner of Police to submit his resignation and I urge the Governor to accept it. our decision was arrived at after exhaustive discussions with local organizations and community lead ers. It is a fact that the Virgin Islands faces serious problems with crime and it is a fact that the current Virgin Islands Police Department administration is unable to get control of it. There has been an increase in the overall criminal activity. There has been an increase in gun-related crime. There has been an increase in property crime. Foremost, there has been a dramatic increase in open-air gun battles which leaves Virgin Islanders feeling that our community is not safe. We have come to the conclusion that we need new leadership and a new direction in crime prevention. As with any professional business organization, when the organization is failing at every level, one has no choice but to replace the leadership. I am reminded of the promises made at the conensured the community that a change in the direction year. It is evident that he has not been able to meet those goals. I believe that Commissioner James McCall is an honest individual and a man of integrity who has had a commendable career in law enforcement. However, I believe the Police Department of the Virgin Islands needs to move in a new direction, with new ideas, new initiatives and new programs. to the occasion and to use every ounce of their energy and expertise to help stop this criminal assault on the community. I am also calling on all of our judges to work in concert with the VIPD to ensure that known criminals are not returned to the streets. We appreciate the efforts of Commissioner McCall and his service to the people of the Virgin Islands; however, we believe the Commissioner must clear the way for the next generation of leadership for the Vir gin Islands Police Department. Louis P. Hill, Senate President, 28th LegislatureSenator Hill, Majority Calls for McCall’s Resignation St. John Tradewinds, May 18-24, 2009 15 To the Virgin Islands’ Newspapers, The purpose of a Letter to the Editor section in print publication is to provide the public with a forum. The primary intent of my letter to the editor concerning V.I. Police Department Commissioner James McCall was to bring attention that it is unfair to publish derogatory commentary when it is well known that pubgenerally reserve the right to delete the objectionable comments. The only arguable objectionable comment is the last sentence. Instead, the Daily News published my comments, but deleted the major point of taking an unfair advantage. This point does not qualify for the type of “objectionable” material that is subject to deletion under general editorial guidelines. A newspaper compromises its own integrity when it deletes commentary simply because it is contrary to the newspaper’s political objectives. My full comments are below. This is in response to the Daily News Editorial of May 11, 2009, and the Guest Editorials with respect to Police Commissioner James McCall. Deep-rooted corruption and/or labor issues are not easily eradicated or resolved. Further, the fault does witnesses such, but keeps quiet. Likewise, as the economy has gone south, the crime has rapidly escalated stateside as well as here. What bothers me the most, however, is that these Editors and Guest Editors wait until the Commissioner is off-island to publish these disparaging editorials. Where is the integrity in that? It’s kind of like shooting a man in the back, isn’t it?
