CARTER HAGUE REMEMBRANCE SET FOR SATURDAY

Friends and associates of Carter Hague are invited to gather at Hook Line and Sinker in Frenchtown Saturday afternoon, April 15, to share memories and anecdotes about the long-time St. Thomas journalist, who died of cancer April 6.
The remembrance gathering will be from 3 to 5 p.m.
"All are welcome to pay respects to Carter," an announcement of the remembrance said, "and to reminisce about his wonderful sense of humor and his time with us here on St. Thomas. Bring good stories and warm memories."
Hague, who was born in Waco, Texas, in 1940, worked for The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal in Texas and The Charlotte Observer in North Carolina before moving to St. Thomas in the early 1970s. He was a reporter and editor at The Daily News and a publicist for the former V.I. Commerce Department and became one of the most familiar voices in the territory as news director and commentator at WVWI Radio.
His most recent journalist endeavor was as editor of The Virgin Islands Business Journal.
Hague's body was cremated and his ashes will be interred in Waco. He is survived by family members on the mainland and by his longtime companion Linda Pinson and many other friends on St. Thomas.
