Island’s Oldest Newspaper Moving to Online Only Format

Dear Tradewinds Readers,

I wanted to take this opportunity to announce that this issue, July 25, is the final print issue of the St. John Tradewinds Newspaper. Thank you for your loyalty over the years and in the recent months as we have taken over ownership and have been printing biweekly.

I would like to highlight our managing editor, Jaime Elliott, for all of her hard work as well as all of our current writers, Amy Roberts, Judi Shimel, Andrea Milam, Mary Bourassa and Rebecca Reinbold. I would especially like to thank the local businesses and business owners who have supported the Tradewinds as advertisers.

Although we will no longer be printing the paper, we are not going away. We are moving online. Our website,, will be your online resource for all things St. John. News, local events, advertising, business directory, etc.

Myself and my team at Tradewinds care deeply about St. John and want to remain a steadfast, reliable news source continuing to serve our community. We hope that you will continue to support us as we start our new journey as an online news source.

Thank you,
Nick Van Assche
