Travel Weekly chimes in on the Wyndham deal:
"WYNDHAM HOTELS AND RESORTS will brand the 400-room Wyndham St. Croix Golf Resort & Casino, scheduled to open in 2010. The resort will serve as the cornerstone of a $250 million complex that will include the St. Croix Conference Center. The 294-acre site near downtown Christiansted is a short drive from the airport. The resort will have a casino (the second on the island); a Jack-Nicklaus-designed golf course; a spa and fitness center; four restaurants; lounges; retail stories; and a kids' club. The property will be St. Croix's second chain hotel, joining the Divi Carina Bay Beach Resort & Casino."
The St. Thomas Source has an article about the Property Tax Bill:
" March 11, 2008 -- A comprehensive property tax reform bill recently passed by the Legislature cuts an extra $27.4 million dollars from anticipated revenues for fiscal year 2008 and continues to throw this year's budget out of whack, the governor says.
While Gov. John deJongh Jr. signed a majority of the bill into law Monday, he line-item vetoed sections in which he said the reductions would be "too great a variance" for the government to absorb."
