At the top of the news on !!AIR – March 24 Monday
The GERS holds an meeting every year to get information from its investment managers about the status of the securities held in trust. The annual meeting rotates through our islands. Sometimes on St. John, sometime St. Thomas, sometimes St. Croix. But this year – they are going the British Virgin Islands. Austin Nibbs, GERS administrator says they're moving to the British Virgin Islands to keep the focus on the USVI members. He said - too many times - members attend the meeting for 15 minutes then leave for two hours or  talk on their phones – they don't stay focused on the issues. Does the GERS board really need to go Tortola to focus on the issues? Could they get the same focus on St. Thomas in the room with the door locked? Maybe if everybody left their phones at the door? How much does it cost the cash-strapped GERS to take everyone on a junket to stay “focused.”  They could meet at the Carambola resort. Save money, they own that resort.  The could meet at Havensight – they own that too.

Meanwhile the schools closed until Monday. Department of Education staff are investigating the possibility of double sessions at St Croix Education Complex. Has anyone considered a student playing a prank with a chemistry set making this smell.

The Senate Committee on Health and Hospitals met on St. Croix on Thursday and approved by a bill to prohibit the sale of electronic cigarettes and alternative nicotine products to minors. Wayne Biggs from Licensing and Consumer Affairs said his department would support any measure that prevents the sale of harmful substances to minors. E-cigarettes are in the news as an alternative to smoking cigarettes but in most jurisdictions there are few regulations for the new electronic nicotine infusion devices. No matter how you describe it,  an E cigarettes deliver nicotine and nicotine is addictive.  Senators also approved an act to allow pharmacists to administer vaccines and they approved a revision to the laws regarding physical therapy with new regulations to control supervise and licensed physical therapy.
