The source of “The Source”

Online paper in paradise perseveres

The Weather Channel

Folks, it’s 78 degrees and sunny.

Could NOT be better … UNLESS the Weather Channel, when it puts on the screen the "Local Weather", stopped showing the island and labeling it "ST JOHNS".  Honest to God, they do!

ST. JOHN, USVI (MarketWatch) — If Janet and Steve can make it here, they can make it anywhere. Thanks to the Internet. More.

More about Buffett and Chesney

Kenny Chesney and Jimmy Buffett did sing at least one song together at this week’s concert for Philip Morris executives at the Westin Resort, St. John.  One person who watched the show from the beach, outside Buffett’s custom-made tent (lighting grids, huge amplifiers, generators) said, "I heard Kenny.  And I saw his hat."  Another report said Eric Clapoton was in the audience. And the boat people at the shoreline were having a great time … lots of skinny dipping and topless dancing on deck,  sources tell the Inquiring Iguana.

Another star sighting

Former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell kicked back on St. John this week, at the Westin Resort. Locals say he’s another reason there were security guards at the hotel Monday and Tuesday. The St. John Source reported Powell was seen in shorts and a T-shirt on a chaise lounge after he, too, appeared at the conference of Phillip Morris sales executives. (Jimmy Buffett’s concert last night.) Powell said he was appearing "in a personal capacity". He was due to return to DC Wednesday.
