St. John paper is an artful effort

Tom Paine
and Shirley Reid say their St. John Sun-Times is a newspaper for the softer side of St. John.  He’s a novelist, she’s an artist, and together they’ve cooked up what Tom calls a bouillabaisse of different opinions from island people who are curious about St. John.  "Our interest in St. John is from the perspective of people who love the art and the music and the culture," Paine said.  "When we go around, we don’t necessarily see hard news stores, we see change which is picked up by two artist-type people."  His favorite interview in the past year was a one-on-one with Sen. Craig Barshinger at the island’s miniature golf course, while Reid’s favorite experience was – as a local – staying at Maho Bay campground.
