This thing just won't die - it looks like the Golden Casino project on St. Croix is not only alive, but kicking (although with a different name!):
Feb. 27, 2008 -- Wyndham Hotels and Resorts will manage the long-delayed Golden Gaming casino resort project on St. Croix's South Shore, developer Paul Golden announced Wednesday morning at The Palms at Pelican Cove.
Wyndham Resorts made its own announcement, broadcast on CNN at 8 a.m. Wednesday. "Golden Gaming" no more: Henceforth the project will be known as Wyndham St. Croix Golf Resort and Casino.
"After seven and a half years, Golden Resorts couldn't be more pleased and honored to have Wyndham managing the property," Golden said. "Wyndham's past experience with their 24 properties in the Caribbean and Latin America gives us the benefit of their sales, marketing and reservations system, their triple-rewards program for their members, and their network of Wyndham vacation-ownership condos. And they are well-known, experienced managers of hotels and resorts."
The St. Thomas Source is reporting:
"Feb. 5, 2008 -- New changes will make the governor's property-tax bill more palatable for senators and allay residents' fears of having to pay two sets of property taxes in fiscal year 2008, Gov. John deJongh Jr. said Tuesday. The administration's first attempt at creating a comprehensive property-tax proposal was quashed recently by a split vote cast during the last legislative session. During a press conference held at Government House on St. Thomas, deJongh also said that he has called senators into special session Thursday morning to vote on the revised plan, which still contains many of the same provisions submitted to the Legislature months ago -- including increases in exemptions for elderly citizens and veterans, as well as the establishment of a multi-rate tax structure with four different property classes."More here.
