Awesome School of the Arts student video

November 12th, 2012

The St. John School of the Arts, which gets some of its funding from the Virgin Islands Council of the Arts and the National Endowment of the Arts, keeps kids busy, and that’s not always easy to do on St. John.

A new program called Kick It (Kids Impacting and Connecting with Kids through Informative Television) is a great example.

This video is really awesome. Produced by St. John kids with the help of videographer Bill Stelzer and program director Kim Wild.  Check it out. It’ll put a smile on your face.







Our newest advertiser: Coral Oasis

November 11th, 2012

Mamey Peak is an awesome spot and it’s a pretty convenient location too.

If you know where Colombo’s Smoothie Stand is, then you know where Mamey Peak is. Coral Bay is just a few minutes away in one direction, and the North Shore beaches just a few minutes away in the other.

And Coral Oasis is an equally awesome villa. Turquoise water, BVI and National Park views, three bedrooms, a huge greatroom and a heated pool for those cool mountaintop evenings.

Check out Coral Oasis, below….

November 9th, 2012

Here we have the Teriyaki, Pineapple & Swiss Chicken Breast sandwich with chips, for $12.50.

And the Chicken Caesar Salad for $14.







Christmas Tree Martha

November 8th, 2012

Martha Toomey, who moved full time to St. John in 2010, is good at decorating Christmas trees, and she’s always been jealous of folks in business with names like Solar Jeff and Appliance Paul.

So, now she has dubbed herself Christmas Tree Martha.

And Martha is setting up a temporary shop for the holidays on the third floor at Marketplace.

“We’ll have artificial trees, Norfolk pine to plant after the holidays and cut trees from the hardware store,” says Martha. “The trees will have very individual themes, for example the “alcohol tree” would be perfect for you guys.”

(NIce.)

She’s also planning to stock up on St. John ornaments from local artists for visitors to take back home.

All profits from Martha’s Christmas tree sales go to Mary’s Family, a nonprofit that helps children with disabilities on St. John.
