Governor John DeJongh is working on a water park. The Governor signed a contract with Baker Berrios Architects, to prepare an economic feasibility report for the development of a water-adventure park on St. Croix. The Governor is calling on Depts of Tourism, Property and Procurement and the Economic Development to collaborate to ensure that we cover all the bases and attract a developer who will build a high quality water-adventure park. DeJongh said “There is no doubt that a water-adventure park will be an attractive amenity and one more benefit that we can use in marketing all that St. Croix has to offer.  It will provide an economic injection with the construction activity and on-going jobs that will be beneficial to our diversification.

Our virtue of the week  is Cooperation – It means working together and sharing the load.  When we cooperate, we join with others to do things that cannot be done alone.  We are willing to follow the rules which keep everyone safe and happy.  Together we can accomplish great things.
You are practicing cooperation when you…
*   Work well with others
*   Offer your help and ideas freely
*   Disagree peacefully and respectfully
*   Follow the rules
*   Ask for help when you need it
*   Help keep a safe, happy environment
Say this Affirmation: I am cooperative. I respect the rules. I work and play well with others.  I keep myself and others safe. Cooperation – that’s how you make good news.
