LONG-TIME V.I. NEWSMAN CARTER HAGUE DIES

Veteran Virgin Islands journalist Carter Hague died early Thursday at the Roy L. Schneider Hospital after a four-month battle with cancer. He was 59.
Hague had been hospitalized in recent weeks, having been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer which had spread to other vital organs.
For many years one of the familiar radio news voices of the territory, Hague was news director of WVWI/Radio One in the mid-1980s. A career journalist, he had been a reporter and, later, editor at The Daily News in the late 1960s and early '70s. He had also been a public information officer at the then-V.I. Department of Commerce. More recently, he was editor-in-chief of the Virgin Islands Business Journal.
Hague was a restaurant and bar manager at the Mafolie Hotel until the early part of this year, when his condition worsened.
He is survived by his special friend Linda Pinson, relatives on the U.S. mainland, and close friends in the Virgin Islands and on the mainland.
