Headlines : Beverly Nicholson Doty will deliver State of the Industry address, Jasmine Campbell is showing our flag at the Olympics, avoid this phone scam and Justice is our virtue of the week 

At the top of the news on  !!AIR – February 10 Monday

She is showing our flag at the Winter Olympics in Sochi Russia.  Jasmine Campbell is the sole athlete at the winter Olympics from the US Virgin Islands. She was born on St. John and she moved with her family to Idaho when she was 9 years old. She began ski racing in Idaho; and has trained as an Alpine racer, in Slalom and Giant Slalom. During the parade of nations during the opening ceremonies of the Winter Games she proudly waved a large USVI flag. We got an interview with her in Sochi. She said the whole Opening Ceremony  was surreal. She meet interesting people from countries she didn’t know how to pronounce, She said you can travel the globe in just 100 meters. She called it a real honor and privilege to be a part of that. Backstage before the parade, everyone was kind and welcoming as they asked where you were from and what sport you were doing. Everyone wanted to exchange pins. Her race in the Giant Slalom comes up February 18th, and on February 21st she races in Slalom. Between now and then she is adjusting to the time zone and training for the races. Jasmine Campbell offered a big thank you to everyone for their gracious support and kind words of congratulations. “It's an honor not only to represent the Virgin Islands And I'll try to make y'all proud.”  You can follow her on Facebook at facebook.com/VirginIslandsOlympics. We will bring you a voice report later this week.

Good news from the Daily News about Frederiksted Health Care Inc. which is about to expand into Christiansted. They offer primary health care services and plan to open a facility in Le Grande Princess on Northside Road. Chief executive Sprauve Webster says many people come to the clinic in Frederiksted from the Christiansted area - so opening the facility near the Christiansted makes sense. They are a freestanding nonprofit organization, not part of the health department. And their mission is to serve the underserved whether they have insurance or not.

Our virtue of the week  is Justice. Practicing justice is being fair. It is solving problems so everyone wins. You don't prejudge. You see people as individuals. You don't accept it when some-one acts like a bully, cheats or lies. Being a champion for justice takes courage. Sometimes when you stand for justice, you stand alone.
You are practicing justice when you ...
* Treat everyone fairly
* Think for yourself and refuse to prejudge
* Avoid gossip and backbiting
* Own your mistakes and fix them
* Protect people's rights, including your own
* Solve problems so everyone wins
Affirmation: I act with justice. I stand up for the rights of others and myself. I have no need to pretend or defend. I choose to make amends.
