St. John Improvements Update!

St. John Improvements Update! 4

If you have been on island recently, you may have noticed a lot of workers on the roads, in the parking lots and at dump sites.  If you come down frequently, you may have taken note over time of the diminishing number of derelict vehicles, trash on the roadsides, potholes in the roads and jumbled power lines in your sight lines.  Recently, the Government House VI has started a video series entitled “The Administrators’ Corner,” allowing our lovely Island Administrator, Shikima Jones-Sprauve, to address the community and recap the work that her team, in partnership with local contractors and the Bryan-Roach Administration, have been able to get started and get completed since she took office in 2019.  Improvements are on the move and on the horizon for the infrastructure and accessibility here on St. John!

New Business Alert! Midway Grocery is OPEN! 6

Good Morning All!  About a year ago, Jenn reported on the opening of the new gas station on the freshly paved Adrian straightaway near Cathrineberg.  The locally owned gas station opened last spring and the adjacent Midway Hot Spot local food stop opened in October.  We have all been anxiously watching and awaiting the opening of the new grocery store in the plaza.  Well, they had their grand opening this weekend and I, personally, am so excited to have an outside of town stop for ALL of my grocery needs!

Governor Bryan Loosens Restaurant and Beach Restrictions

Governor Bryan Loosens Restaurant and Beach Restrictions 8

Happy Hump Day! And, we are halfway through the week!  How’s everyone doing out there?  Things seem to have calmed down a WEE bit on St. John this past week.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s still super busy, but it doesn’t feel like we are bursting at the seams anymore.  And, seemingly, the government imposed mandates in regards to COVID-19 have remained effective through the Winter and Spring Break booms.  On Monday, Governor Bryan announced a few more small steps to loosen some of the current COVID restrictions in light of positive cases remaining low and vaccination distribution remaining high in the USVI.

Yesterday afternoon, St. John received visits from two different natural phenomenons…Both of which are impressive feats of nature in my book!  The west side of the island sat under stagnant, hazy air, while the east end received a bit of rain and quite a show from Mother Nature!
