SIMMONDS GETS OFFICIAL NOD FOR EDUCATION

It's official: Dr. Ruby Simmonds is Gov. Charles W. Turnbull's choice to be education commissioner, as St. Thomas Source reported two weeks ago.
Turnbull made the announcement Saturday at a meeting of the V.I. Democratic Party, according to the Sunday-Monday Independent.
He said he has chosen people for most Cabinet positions but won't make formal announcements until the individuals have accepted their appointments.
The only Cabinet positions that remain undecided are the Public Works and Police departments, Turnbull said.
Earlier in the week Turnbull formally nominated three Cabinet members: Iver Stridiron to be attorney general, Dr. Wilbur Callender to be health commissioner and Ira Hobson to head housing, parks and recreation.
