Headlines : St Croix Aggie fair is over and we have winners. The tennis tournament was good for local competitors. The genealogy library has an open house this weekend and our Olympic contestant is on the slopes today.

At the top of the news on  !!AIR – February 18 Tuesday

The St. Croix agricultural fair is over. Lots of food,, lots of fun lots of music. At the last minute folks were still snatching up fruit and vegetables, arts and crafts. There was a real question whether the economic downturn and exodus of people would impact the agricultural fair. Agricultural Commissioner Louis Peterson said he was pleased, particularly with how many people returned to St. Croix for the fair. He said his favorite event was the tribute to Calypso star Slinger Francisco known to all as the Mighty Sparrow. Expect the fair back again next year. We have mentors in the dumb bread competition. Third placed to Eleanor Seelye of St. Croix, second place to Ms. Lillia Hendrics of St. Thomas, and first placed Edwin Davis of St. Thomas. And in the hat competition first place goes to meet Annie Edney of St Croix. In the education exhibit, Good Hope Country Day took first place with a display that featured a hydroponic pond, steam mill chimney of sand and stone and a wind turbine with a soda can base. And Saint Patrick's Catholic school play second with a recycling bin, Iqra Academy was third with a display called name the leaf with individual framed leaves.  Eulalie Rivera Elementary School won the sweepstakes on Saturday with a display about recycling plastic bottles that included birdfeeders, dustpan, purses and planters made of large plastic bottles.

Our Olympic contestant is coming up to her competition TODAY and again on Thursday. Jasmine Campbell has been training while she's waiting. Pedaling a bicycle for hours of the time, strength conditioning, then up to the mountains to do skiing them back to the gym for more bicycle. She said in an interview that she is shockingly calm. She is up against champions who she finds inspiring. One of the problems the skiers face is that the temperatures have been warmer than normal and the snow gets soft and mushy. The Russian Olympic Committee imported tons of coarse grain salt from Switzerland to groom the snow. You can follow our Olympic team at Facebook.com/Virgin Islands Olympics.
