Headlines :  what kind of sports facility would you like to see in Mars Hill St. Croix, St. Croix Central may be closed but work continues, this weekend University students showcased their science research and our virtue of the week is tact

At the top of the news on !!AIR – March 24 Monday

While classes are currently suspended at St. Croix Central High School - the faculty and staff are at work:  The CHS Guidance Department will now host the Caribbean Counselors Association College Fair today at the St. Croix Educational Complex at 1 o'clock.  All CHS 11th grade students are encouraged to attend this college fair. Students in school uniform and bring your school ID card.  Also today CHS seniors with the last names beginning with letters “G” through “M” will meet at the University of the Virgin Islands’ (UVI’s) Great Hall this morning. And tomorrow Tuesday, last names N through Z will meet starting at 8:30 am to 11 AM. Sandra Cannon, the 12th grade counselor, advises the seniors to walk with their parents/guardians tax information to complete the financial aid application. Students wear your uniform. Parents are kindly asked to provide transportation to and from these senior meetings.

Housing Finance Authority is planning a major sports facility for Mars Hill St. Croix. In their vision there is a 5,000 seat multipurpose indoor complex suitable for concerts, sporting events with lots of parking on 44 acres near the Claude O. Markoe School. Nearby would be a wellness center with exercise and fitness rooms. Up first? Get your opinions. On Wednesday the agency will host a town hall meeting to hear your comments and suggestions - that's on Wednesday 5:30 at 100 Lagoon complex in Frederiksted. What else will be alongside the sports complex? Restaurants, archery, zip lines, family activities? It’s up to you. Meanwhile the sports Parks and Recreation Department has money to redevelop Paul E. Joseph Stadium  so the idea is to ensure that both projects are complementary.

I love the news when the cops get the crooks. Police on St Croix responded to a call of a bank robbery in progress and captured a suspect five minutes later.  A lone suspect walked in to the Banco Popular in Orange Grove Shopping Center, gave the teller a note and walked out of the bank with a bag of money. The 911 emergency center got a call – they dispatched officers within a minute. Officers saw the victim running and noticed the die on his clothes that comes from the dye packs used by banks. He had money in his possession that was stained with the same dye and his note demanding money.  Off to jail.

On St John the University’s Environmental Resources Station (VIERS) will host a celebration of the 45th anniversary of Project Tektite I, an ambitious underwater habitat research project for NASA. It started in the spring of 1969. They will celebrate on Saturday, March 29, with a short historic film about Tektite I, , a panel of original Tektite aquanauts, who will share recollections about their roles in this historic scientific project.  Public tours of the Tektite Underwater Habitat Museum will also be offered. The museum has new artifacts; a miniature model of the interior of the underwater habitat, and life-size replicas of the habitat’s control room and living quarters. If you want to participate please  RSVP call Tony Blackwell at 776-6721 or send e-mail to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

This weekend was time for the University of the Virgin Islands students to showcase their research. It was the 12th annual spring student research symposium. There were 37 projects entered in the Emerging Caribbean Scientists symposium. Topics ran the gamut of scientific subjects, from deep sea to deep space, including water quality, local fruit, plants, coral and marine life, sheep and deer, outer space, math models and the structure of protein.
•    Tasha Corneille and Shanan Emmanuel extracted DNA from ticks collected from white-tailed deer to see if they carry diseases that could infect people.
•    Nathan Gubser, a junior, conducted research for his study of “Per-fluoro-carbon Tracer Data Analysis Enhancement” last summer at the Brookhaven Laboratory in New York.
•    Jomanni Bernier and Carlos Montilla tested papaya seeds to determine if air drying or dehydrating the seeds produces a bigger crop.
A panel of 39 judges will announce one or two symposium winners in the next few weeks. Prizes include travel awards to compete at national scientific competitions.

Our virtue of the week  is Tact.  Tact is telling the truth kindly, considerate of how your words affect others' feelings.  Think before you speak, knowing what is better left unsaid.  When you are tactful, others find it easier to hear what you have to say.  Tact builds bridges.
You are practicing tact when you ...
*   Are careful about the feelings of others
*   Stop yourself from teasing or embarrassing others
*   Tell the truth kindly and gently
*   Decide if it is better to tell the truth or keep silent
*   Keep unpleasant or critical thoughts to yourself
*   Treat people who are different as you would treat anyone
Say this affirmation: I am tactful.  I think before I speak.  I am diplomatic even when I feel strongly.  I tell the truth kindly and gently.
