NEW YORK – Gov. Kenneth Mapp left the territory on September 3 and went to New York for a culture fest in the park and a parade in the city — and he apparently made quite an impression — because he was still making news long after he left the Big Apple.

On September 14 in her famous celebrities Page Six column in the New York Post, Cindy Adams quotes Mapp this way:

“Tourism’s up 10 percent. But I’m a politician. Remember, I have to manage my lies.”

John McCarthy

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
