Headlines : 

At the top of the news on !! AIR – May 5 Monday
Carnival is over ! Is it really over? We had Prince and Princess, Carnival Queen competition, Calypso Monarch Calypso review water sports, a food fair that was spectacular, a J’ouvert that was Excellent. A children's Parade went on-and-on forever, and adult parade was the biggest anyone can remember. Some of the troupes had the most members they had ever had.

Leading the parade was grand Marshal, Lubin Roberts. Who has been part of the jesters since forever. Calypso Monarch Patrick Farrell and the Carnival queens live off the parade. Along with Chester Brady - “The Mighty Groover” in his one-man float. The Gypsies honoured their very first king and queen by having the whole troop dressed as Kings and Queens. The University of the Virgin Islands had several entries including the WUVI radio entry, a steel pan band and a whole troop decked out in Carnival splendor.  The Freshwater Yankees paid tribute to boxing great Emile Griffith. The infernos came out as warriors with brown and gold Leopard prints. The tropical masqueraders had bells on their shoes as they jumped to the tunes of Jam Band. Party Hardy made a point to raise awareness of breast cancer, with King-of-the-band, Troy Tetley decked out as a Caribbean butterfly showcasing the many stages of cancer. Rising Stars had two trolleys side-by-side in US Post Office Square that was a lot of sound. Hugga-Bunch was the late in the parade as the sun was setting. And very last the Traditional Indians in light blue and white. From the parade to Carnival village - the place was packed and at 9 pm the fireworks were exploding above the Charlotte Amalie Harbor. The display, by the Grucci family, lasted 15 minutes, and contained all of their signature pieces, including hearts, flowers and swirls. Costumes, music, floats and steel pan bands – we had it all in this carnival. And best of all - barely a hint of the violence that is marred carnivals in the past.

Our virtue of the week  is Commitment
Commitment is caring deeply about something or someone.  It is deciding carefully what you want to do, then giving 100%, holding nothing back.  You give your all to friendship, a task, or something you believe in.  You finish what you start.  You keep your promises. You are practicing commitment when you…
Think before you make a promise
Keep every agreement you make
Make decisions confidently
Go the extra mile
Give 100% to everything you do
Are faithful to people you care about
Affirmation: I commit to my decisions. I keep my agreements. I give my all. I am a faithful friend.
