At the top of the news on !!AIR – April 10 Thursday
News from the Joint Board of election. They will pay for the primary elections. Details remain to be worked out but the idea that the parties would do their own primaries has been replaced. Part of the problem is that the language in the law is vague, and there are a dozen sections in the Virgin Islands code that refer to the board conducting the primary. One says they submit a budget to fund the primary. But it is vague. The board of elections decided to pay for and sponsor the primary elections.

She's back! The antique schooner Roseway is visiting the Virgin Islands. And she's going to take our school students on board for hands-on science lessons with the World Ocean School. Senate President Shawn Michael Malone says, "We are bringing more students aboard this floating classroom this year than ever before." He  says many students have never been aboard a sailboat. This year students from Charlotte Amalie High School, Ivanna Eudora Kean High School, Bertha C. Boschulte Junior High School, Antilles, Addelita Cancryn Junior High School and Gladys Abraham Elementary School are taking part. The students will learn about navigation, physics, marine biology, history, water safety and all about working in the marine industry.  Next week the World Ocean School will visit St. John and take on UVI students too.  Senator Malone said. "I ask the students to look around our harbor - there are billions of dollars floating there and all the boats they see have to be designed, built, staffed, maintained, managed and repaired."
