What's up? For starters the caps lock key appears to be stuck on your keyboard.
Darn AT&T (and Sprint).

TSA guy9 - the airport welcomes walk ins without calling ahead and you should be able to sail through TSA and be off the island by noon.

This was not a minor offence. We will be the only people left for him to live with. He has no one else to take him in. I never even thought about his crime effecting me as a teacher, but I believe you all are right. As a fellow teacher or parent I my self would want to know about things like this. I really appreciate all the information everyone has given me!

Oh, please stay home. We don't need another registered sex offender here. And honey? You really need to stay in school.

Sex offenders Moving to USVI

Good Evening! My boyfriend and I are considering moving to the Island of St. Thomas in roughly a year. I will be a licensed teacher in May 2012 in art education and would like to start my career on the islands. He does not have a degree and is a wonderful in sales.

From what I have read, teaching jobs are available as well as retail sales.

My biggest concerns are: 1. Crime rate is high, though it was said its mainly over illegal drugs and is not usually random acts. Is this true? How bad does it affect everyday life?
2. My boyfriends dad is in jail in North Carolina. Once he is out ( 4 years after our move) he would be relocating with us. He would be a registered sex offender. I have not been able to find any information about his convictions keeping him from moving to the USVI.
3. Should I look to work for private or public schools? Should my boyfriend work to management positions here in the states, would this help him get a better job once in the USVI?

I appreciate any help/advice. Web links are also very welcome!

Do yourselves a favor, and just skip to the reply at the bottom of this mess. Funny!

Original post:

My name is Marcie and my husband, our dogs, and I are considering a move to St. John. We got married on October 30th, 2010 on Trunk Bay at sunset. It was absolutely gorgeous and was just a total dream! Our vacation was 10 days, 9 nights, and we didn't want to leave at the end of our vacation. I have traveled a lot around the main US states, but this was new to me. I could not have asked for a better vacation and have been thinking about moving to St. John ever since. I am a registered dental hygienist in both Missouri and Arkansas. I have been living and working in Harrison, AR since November 2009. Before that I had lived in small little town, Greenfield, MO my entire life. So my personality is usually very safe, cautious, and I generally do not like change, but St. John may have changed some of that! Lately my life has been very stressful with a job focused on production, production, production. I am dreaming of a life with much less stress and a go with the flow feeling where everyone is not so busy, busy, busy! Since I have been thinking of making this move, I have looked into the possibility of practicing dental hygiene and I would feel more financially secure if I had another career to fall back on as well. I have been looking into going to school for massage therapy. My dream plan would be to work 1-2 days as a dental hygienist and 2-3 days as a massage therapist. I love dental hygiene, but the stress is outrageous! So I figured working both careers would not be so stressful. This thought originated when I was on vacation in Aruba with my husband, mom, and brother late this May. The massage therapists at our resort were giving massages at the "Spa Cove" where it was basically a little tiki hut out over the water facing the beautiful ocean! I thought how perfect, they just seemed so relaxed at their job and that they must love it and may not have as much stress as what a 40 hr a week dental hygiene job brings. This is my dream, but I have a few very important questions that I have been trying to answer. Can I financially make it with those kind of jobs? Can my husband make a contribution by waiting tables or anything that he could find that interests him? Can we live comfortably without having to live paycheck to paycheck? We live very comfortably now with just my job. My husband has been trying to get a used car business started but has yet to make profit. Would I be able to afford some place to rent/buy that would have room outside for our 4 big outside dogs and our 1 indoor dog? Would we ever get bored (as here now we can drive to several places of entertainment.)? If anyone reads this and has any comments or suggestions, I would greatly appreciate any replies as I contemplate this huge adventurous move!

Too funny!

Original post:

Hi everyone. I recently found out about a job opening at the St. Croix Avis newspaper, and was curious if anyone had any opinions or feelings about the paper. I'm graduating from college this summer, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that maybe, just maybe, this could be my ticket to move down to the V.I. (My family has taken a vacation there, and I've been in love with the place ever since.)

So if anyone has any insight on the newspaper, since it doesn't have a web site, that would be wonderful! Thank you for any advice or help in advance!


I agree with Eastender about the Avis. It's a real local paper for STX. The do need a proofreader desperately. In one obituary it stated that the man died of "Lew Kemea". I almost fell over laughing.
