This Week’s Feature Story

A Garden of Memories Velma Chung is a local legend in Carrot Bay and during this year’s Emancipation festival celebrations she launched her long-awaited book of poetic short stories entitled, A Garden of Memories. Most of the stories come from real life experiences and tributes to loved ones. The local author and songwriter signed copies of the book for family, friends, community members and well-wishers who all gathered to recognize her achievement. Her writing has more than a little Caribbean flair and gives a slice of Tortolian culture and village history. Velma was born and raised in Carrot Bay, which she still calls home. During the launch, the author read a piece, The Home of my “Nable” String where she reminisces about life in Carrot Bay and about the people both past and present, all of whom have helped shape the unique and special community into what it is today. The book also captures her family history, relating personal tragedies as well as the professional achievements of her sister and the courtship of her husband. Throughout the book is a spiritual vein and quite a few of the poems were

inspired by sermons and other experiences from the Carrot Bay Methodist Church. It is here that Velma often shares her insights at the annual Harvest Thanksgiving Service at the Church where she sings calypso under the name “Lord Chung.” I asked Velma what plans she has for the future and she said, “I have been encouraged to put my book onto a CD and also I have many more poems that I hope to publish in the future.” She has also written a play that was performed one year at the Carrot Bay Fiesta and a calypso song, Tell Me The Story Once Again that was sang by Elton Callwood.” She went on to explain, “When undertaking this project, I wanted to leave pearls of wisdom for future generations so that they do not forget the rich heritage of life in the islands.” Velma has written the book in delightful language that is a treat to read and it reflects the diverse and talented individual that she is. This book will undoubtedly do much to keep the Virgin Islands heritage and culture alive. To buy your own slice of VI history, contact Velma on 499-1854, 495-4005 or e-mail her at velmachung@gmail.com. – Jan Critchley

Ask Koren Your personal E-therapist, is in the house!

Should I Date a Foreign Man

Ask Koren

Dear Koren, I haven’t been in a relationship for almost 2 years and I am lonely. This man who comes to my workplace to do business is asking me out and I like him – he is always respectful and nice. I have never dated a foreigner in my life and I don’t know what my family will say. I want to give him a chance but my family generally is not in favour of people from certain countries. Please give me some advice. –Ann (not real name) that you have similar ideas about a relationship and that you want the same things. Remember there might be some cultural differences to overcome. Only introduce him to the family when you are sure that this is someone you are serious about. So while you value their opinion, the final decision about who you date is up to you. Remember in the end, it’s all up to you who you choose to date, have as friends and ultimately spend your life with. So take it easy and like any new relationship, you need to enjoy the interaction with this fellow at a reasonable pace and not make any hasty decisions. If your family complains, then tell them to make you a man, and until they do, you will work with what you have.

Dear Ann, You are an adult and you have a right to date whomever you want. Even if traditionally your family has never been open to foreigners, that does not mean that they will not be willing to consider it. A person should not be defined simply because of their nationality. If someone from the BVI does something wrong, how would you feel if someone painted all Virgin islanders with the same brush. Your family has to understand that your choosing a foreigner to date is not a reflection of your feelings for them, just your desire to be open-minded and enjoy an active social life. It is not right to judge someone without having met them or giving them an opportunity to prove themselves. Take your time to get to know this person before you decide if it will be a long term relationship. Ensure

By Jane Bakewell

A Grave Look at Burial Grounds It is encouraging to see that the BVI slowly but surely is getting on board with the support and interest in maintaining historical sites of significance around the Territory. Historical tourism is a valuable commodity to attract visitors to the islands, who desire more than a beautiful beach and a fruit-garnished rum punch at sunset. Recently on a morning walk around Long Look, Pastor Hank Fahie pointed out to a group of us the historical Long Look cemetery. He recalled how it looked in his childhood with just a creek bed running through the narrow plot of land that follows a sloping hill, dotted with old grave markers and above ground concrete crypts. Now, it appears the creek bed has been widened and vegetation cut back, putting at risk those gravesites that are dangerously near the precipice. Pastor Fahie pointed out that this cemetery was one of the oldest in the east end of the island, possibly only predated by the Quaker burial grounds. That got me thinking about other burial sites around Tortola and prompted a call to Mitch Kent, an instructor at HLSCC and very involved in the Virgin Islands History studies. He was familiar with the location of the site, but said there was not a lot currently written about this burial ground, and referred me to his colleague Jenny Wheatley, well-known BVIslander, historian and published author. Mrs. Wheatley, as it turns out has a special connection with this burial site as it holds the remains of her grandfather, grandmother and sister. As we chatted over the phone she told me the burial ground dates back to the original Nottingham Estate, where the earliest documented slaves in the Caribbean were reed and given land. According to the historical Limin’ Times Entertainment Guide

boundaries this gravesite sits squarely in the middle of the original estate. She surmised that possibly there were even gravesites dating back to the slave era in the late 1800’s, although most of those sites would not have been marked. Mrs. Wheatley also mentioned, the original custom was to bury the dead underground, and that it is a more recent phenomenon to have above ground crypts. I did notice that there was sign at the Long Look Cemetery announcing a restoration project in the works. I hope this project gets underway shortly, so that during the upcoming hurricane season when the island gets its majority of rainfall, these sites will be shored up to protect them from being swept down the wide ghut that has now formed there. Care and attention should be given to all BVI historical sites, but particularly gravesites that pay honor to those who have gone before. History’s story is told through its people, and showing respect for the island’s ancestral heritage is a way to ensure it will be modeled by future generations. 6

By Arlena St. Hilaire

Ted Not too many films serve up laughs that just keep on rolling with regularity from beginning to end, but the directorial debut of Seth MacFarlane, mastermind of that animated symphony of crudeness known as Family Guy does exactly that with his hit movie Ted. John Bennett's stuffed teddy bear came to life when he was a child and they have been best friends ever since. A montage shows the bear’s early years of celebrity, including appearances with Johnny Carson on The Tonight Show, before the masses tire of his particular novelty and move on to other things. But now John (Mark Wahlberg) is 35 years old, and his professional life is at a standstill while his long-term relationship with Lori Collins (Mila Kunis) is in jeopardy because John isn't quite a grown-up yet. After an altercation, Lori gives an ultimatum – she will leave unless John finally kicks out his best pal and starts behaving like an adult. Ted (the voice of Seth MacFarlane) does his best to assimilate to living on his own and existing in the real world even while John's attempts at stepping up are threatened by the lure of Ted's immature antics. One of the tricks of Ted – perhaps its smartest one – is that everyone, not just John, knows the bear can talk, and almost everyone's OK with Ted's presence. Using the latest in motion-capture techniques, MacFarlane even does Ted's moves. And boy can Ted move. Wahlberg played their scenes together basically staring at a stick, with the computer adding Ted

Cast & Credits Mark Wahlberg ----------------------------John Bennett Mila Kunis-------------------------------------Lori Collins Seth MacFarlane----------------------------- Ted (Voice) Jessica Barth ----------------------------------Tami-Lynn Joel McHale-------------------------------------------Rex later. But it works. The scene in which John tries to guess the name of the white-trash girl Ted wants to marry is time-capsule worthy. As is the Thunder Buddies song. At its core, Ted is a movie about an overgrown child who won't step up to the plate and be an adult, and the walking/talking teddy bear who serves as an enabler. But it is more than just a generic fable about letting go of childhood. It takes specifics and with pinpoint accuracy aims at a culture that defies the entertainment it grew up with and yet still insists on bathing in the warm waters of generational nostalgia. 13

More Norah: CBS Revamps Strategy For ‘This Morning’ The morning show makeovers continue. At the start of the year, CBS jettisoned its Early Show format for CBS This Morning by retaining Erica Hill and adding Charlie Rose and Gayle King and adopting more of a hard-news approach. Later, with ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today engaged in their strongest battle for the top ratings slot in almost two decades, Today replaced Ann Curry with Savannah Guthrie as Matt Lauer’s co-anchor just before the Summer Olympics. Now change is coming to weekday mornings again. After the conventions, veteran political reporter Norah O’Donnell — who moved to CBS last summer after 12 years with NBC News — will inherit Hill’s chair at the CBS This Morning table alongside Rose and King. To hear the network’s executives tell it, it’s the right switch at the right time. “It really is about Norah and her abilities,” explains Jeff Fager, chairman of CBS News (and executive producer of 60 Minutes). “In terms of where we’re going and her experience, her reporting, she’s just such a perfect fit. And especially going into the election, coming right off the White House (where O’Donnell has been a CBS News correspondent), she just adds so much.” Leaving the nation’s capital to assume her New York-based CBS This Morning duties, O’Donnell says she’s “thrilled to be a part of the broadcast. It’s an exciting time. Two hours of live television (each weekday), there’s nothing like it. I’m excited to join Gayle and Charlie and do a lot of politics — what I do best — and also do some new stuff.” Being utilized in CBS’ prime-time convention coverage and on the Sunday morning staple Face the Nation, O’Donnell reflects that her decision to switch networks was based on “doing quality broadcasting

and doing great journalism. I think that’s what CBS stands for, and certainly, my reporting out of the White House has been aimed at that every day.” O’Donnell adds that during her NBC News tenure, she “anchored (and) covered the White House, the Pentagon and Congress. Returning to the White House, it was fabulous to work with a managing editor like Scott Pelley (also the weeknight anchor of CBS Evening News), who has such a deep interest in not just news in general but also foreign news. That really helped me stretch as a reporter.” It’s likely O’Donnell will find an early-hours haven for her style, given how CBS This Morning is described by co-anchor King, also famously known as Oprah Winfrey’s best friend. “On one particular day, (we were) doing the 40th anniversary of Watergate,” King recalls. “One of the other networks was sitting there with Snooki. Somebody else was doing the Dallas (revival). I think it just speaks to trying to offer the audience an alternative, and that’s something I believe we do very well.” Not surprisingly, Rose concurs, noting he enjoys getting “the first crack at the news” in contrast to ending the day with his ongoing PBS late-night program. “We’ve gotten not only the guests but also an array of reporters that I not only had great respect for coming in but can tap into. The schedule has not been an issue. In fact, the excitement of being there in the morning has been even more rewarding than I thought it might be.”
