We have a winner, no, make that two winners. On Sunday St. Thomas Carnival got off to go roaring start with the Princess competition.  Sh’Nyah Bacon took home most of the prizes, 6 of the 8 awards went to the 11-year-old from Julius Sprauve School of St John. In the Vita Malt Princess Selection show Bacon won best talent, best evening wear, Ms. intellect, best cultural where, best sportswear, and Miss congeniality. She won so many categories… there was no second runner up or third either. That's pretty hard on the other candidates; Richelle Lanclos who won Miss Photogenic, and nine-year-old Cemi-Leila John who won Miss Cooperative. When it came to the question and answer session all three delivered similar words, that our local culture will only survive if the younger generation continues to pass it on. Our Carnival Princess is Sh’Nyah Bacon of St John.

News from the Supreme Court– they reversed a Superior Court decision denying the preliminary injunction which temporarily prevents the Government of the Virgin Islands from negotiating and executing a contract for the Main Street Enhancement Project.  The Supreme Court sent the case back to the Superior Court for a hearing to determine whether the unsuccessful bidder, Tip Top Construction, is entitled to the contract for the Main Street project. Public Works Commissioner Darryl Smalls said Sunday it is vitally important that we resolve this matter expeditiously. “We are at a critical crossroad in our continued economic development and the timely start of this project will solidify both our position and our market share within the competitive regional tourism industry.
