Get to the airport early

If you were traveling from Cyril King airport on St. Thomas with the Governor of the territory, get a head start.  He issued a statement in the wake of last wek’s terror alert suggesting travlers give themlseves 2 1/2 hours to get through the increased security procedures.  The Governor issued a statement also asking travelers for "patience and cooperation".  New rules at the airport include no curbside parking, and that all liquor and perfume purchases be in checked luggage.  That’s going to require some extra effort for lots of people, from visitors to merchants.  Sara Tieben of A.H. Riise said her company’s stores will be including more cardboard in packaging to protect the bottles in airplanes’ cargo bays.
