pages 17-18 of June 2011 edition,

http://content.yudu.com/Library/A1sgr2/TheZoneMagazine/resources/index.htm?referrerUrl=http%3A%2F%2Ffree.yudu.com%2Fitem%2Fdetails%2F342922%2F06-2011-The-Zone-Magazine%3Frefid%3D73699

A local reporter against deadline caught me 8 hours from a wee early morn departure to Grenada and got this story about my donation of time and ts to the Stephanie Browne Primary School School on Union Island. After 3 hours of interview I left and packed til 2 am when I finally found my passport. Hope you enjoy, I did not get to editorialize. It is a nice plug for IWJ.

I always want to thank. Liz for contacts, Captains Matt and Nervo and the crew for their patience in loading and unloading the tons of school supplies I take down to the islands every time. One day they'll leave me there because I'm late, left at the dock or still at the chalkboard. Then I will be truly blessed.

I can't wait till there is time for me to have an extended stay on the islands and teach! One of the mission statements of the school (they have them there too!) is that there will be a male presence within the school. Wish it was me...
