Frank Barnako is the previous owner of News of St. John.
I’ve been writing about St. John for almost ten years. I figured a newsletter might help the rentals of our island home-away-from-home in Great Falls, Va.,
Blue Tang. See it at BlueTang.vi.
What started as a weekly text newsletter almost 10 years ago, has now become this Web site of news and information about the island.
I first came to St. John with a buddy during a skiing and sun winter vacation.
A few years later, with my wife, Donna, I vacationed at Caneel Bay. We soon found ourselves taken with the
island. We bought property, built a house. Bought another, and renovated it. Sold it, bought another and renovated it.
Our latest, BlueTang, is available for rental through Catered To, (800) 424-6641.
With some partners, we owned the Mail Center
at the Marketplace – offering villa owners, locals, and businesses an efficient and economical way to get mail,
receive and ship packages, and to buy office supplies. We sold the business to the Corley family in September, 2007. They’re good people, and the Mail Center’s services are great.
