ST. CROIX - As quietly as they had popped up on shorelines across the island in the last week, camping tents began disappearing Monday morning as the Easter season and holiday weekend drew to a close and families prepared to return to their homes, work places, schools and normal lives.
Tired from a week of late nights of storytelling, cooking and socializing, campers broke down their tents and tables, folded up chairs and bedding, packed up food and furniture and drove away - one after another - from their campsites Monday with hopes to return again next year to build on the memories.
ST. CROIX - For the second time in as many weeks, government officials have been called to remove an unauthorized flag posted on one of the poles on the lookout along the Christiansted Bypass.
The bright yellow flag with a coiled rattlesnake and the words "Don't tread on me" is a replica of a historic 1775 flag, known as the Gadsden flag.
It symbolizes independence and frequently is used by people participating in anti-tax tea parties or who want to send a message to government about infringing on the rights of citizens. To those displaying the Gadsden flag, it symbolizes their commitment to the freedoms and values upon which the country was founded.
ST. THOMAS - To share their love of nature, photography and the national parks, Don and Shelly Hafner are visiting all 59 parks in 59 weeks.
Last week, the couple visited the Virgin Islands National Park, and wrote about it on their blog, www.59nationalparks.com.
"We really love it there," Don Hafner told The Daily News.
It was a whirlwind trip, just two days, but they managed to pack in an island tour, a visit to the Annaberg Plantation ruins, and a lot of snorkeling at Trunk Bay.
ST. THOMAS - In a meeting during the Easter holiday weekend, the University of the Virgin Islands board gave the green light to develop a plan for a medical school in the territory.
A major gift made by New Generation Power Chairman Chirinjeev Kathuria will support the development plan.
Although the university issued a statement about the board's decision, UVI spokeswoman Nanyamka Farrelly would not provide specifics of the agreement or how much New Generation Power is donating.
ST. THOMAS - A tower of water blasted so high into the sky after a main water line broke on Emerald Hill near Smith Bay on Monday that some witnesses thought that the water was a plume of smoke.
Neither V.I. Water and Power Authority officials nor work crews at the scene knew what caused the break.
WAPA Executive Director Hugo Hodge Jr. said Monday that crews were investigating the incident.
Crews turned the line off after witnesses in the neighborhood reported a geyser of water shooting about 30 or 40 feet into the air. The water was spewing out of a 3-foot-wide hole located on the side of the road about halfway up Emerald Hill.
