St. Croix’s Linval Joseph Promotes Fishing In Minnesota With Gov. Mark Dayton on Saturday

TOP DOGS: St. Croix native Linval Joseph (left) poses with Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton as part of a tourism promotional event for the 10,000 lakes state in the midwest United States.

MINNEAPOLIS — Like most Minnesotans, Linval Joseph spent his Saturday morning fishing one of that state’s 10,000 lakes.

But unlike most Minnesotans, Joseph hails from a place with no lakes, but maybe a few still active streams — St. Croix.

And also unlike most Minnesotans, Joseph fished Mille Lacs Lake with the state’s top elected public official, Gov. Mark Dayton, according to a post on the Minnesota Vikings website.

Joseph is a star defensive player for the Vikings in the National Football League (NFL).

Joseph and Dayton, along with Minnesota youth, fished Mille Lacs Lakes Saturday morning to promote the lake’s status after it was recently named the best bass fishing lake in the country by Bassmaster Magazine.

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everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling.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.
