Happy Friday!

So far no tropical storms and the Saharan Dust has been in force all week!



On this Friday, I am going to give you some of our ways with our locally elected and government workers. Although somewhat funny, some of these stories want to make me puke? Again you cannot make this shit up?

Former Schneider CEO Convicted of Tax Fraud
A federal jury convicted Rodney Miller Sr., former CEO of Schneider Regional Medical Center, of tax fraud on Wednesday after a two-day trial in district court on St. Thomas.

ST. THOMAS ­- After months of dodging its initial agreement to do so, the Economic Development Authority furnished an updated list of delinquent borrowers.
The list of 210 names sent Friday represents $6.4 million in delinquent loans made through the former Small Business Development Authority and the Government Development Bank since 1982.
However, the list still does not include many of the names or amounts referenced in an audit by the V.I. Inspector General's Office released in April that found Economic Development Authority's 2010 loan portfolio had a delinquency rate of 84.5 percent and that the Virgin Islands was owed about $8.5 million. The Economic Development Authority had lost millions of taxpayer dollars through negligent, insecure lending practices and through improper administration of its nine lending programs, the report stated.
