Yikes. Too bad The Avis is still in the 20th century. Can only get info from Daily News (not so great for St. Croix) or the VI Consortium.
Generally, I'm pretty happy with the 20th Century: I have a rotary dial phone, a really old car, and like to read real newspapers.
However, times like these make me realize it's good to have a local newspaper that can be online.
Well, Rena obviously has/had some problems (won't go into that for fear of a libel suit, but you can use your wildest imagination). That canceling of subscriptions without notice really flummoxed me. Couldn't get a refund until I got totally carried away. Kinda autocratic, paranoid, and generally no concern for her public. But well, see above.
Hope her son will bring The Avis into the 21st century. Can't even find Avis's number on line. Now, I kinda agree with Rena's thinking about the evils of online newspapers, but I think she can still conserve the Avis as a mostly real, on paper, newspaper, while still giving us a bit of on-line stuff. Her son seems like a cool, savvy guy who can keep the paper up to snuff, balancing tech with home-based real stuff.
Go St. Croix Avis! I've loved you for more than 40 years.
