Clark County District Court Judge Vernon L. Schreiber represented many things to the many different people he encountered in life — he was a father, husband, friend, colleague and mentor, to say the least.But out of dozens of fond memories shared about him Saturday, there was a common theme: Schreiber will most be remembered for his kind soul and just application of the law.Approximately 400 people gathered at the Clark County Event Center at the Fairgrounds in Ridgefield for a celebration of life to honor Schreiber, who died April 25 following complications from surgery. He was 74.Prosecutors, defense attorneys, judges, clerks, law enforcement officers, court interpreters, former court officials, family and friends were among those who attended the celebration.District Court Judge Kelli E. Osler said that although Schreiber probably wouldn’t have liked to be the center of attention, there’s “no doubt he’d be working the room right now.”Friends and colleagues described the judge, who served about 30 years on the bench, as a man of honor and integrity.“He was just a great guy, an all around great guy,” said retired District Court Judge James Swanger, one of seven people asked to share words of remembrance.

While the Turks and Caicos is miles and miles away from the debates and headlines which rage over the issue which will be put to the citizens in a Referendum this coming June; it is clear that if the EU is dumped by the Brits it will impact us. In response to Magnetic Media questions, His Excellency Peter Beckingham, though out of the country, did reply agreeing that the matter made the agenda of a recent OTs Governors’ meeting. Speaking officially, the Governor shared: “It is something that some Governors have discussed in the Caribbean, most recently at a meeting in March, and of course something we would need to consider.” End quote. While the EU Grants operational in the TCI are assigned for up to 2019, H.E. pointed out, in the long term the outcome will have effect. As recently as February, Finance Minister Hon Washington Misick touted the EDF 10 and EDF 11 funds from the European Union; together the grants amount to over $25m Euros or over $28 million US dollars. Governor Beckingham reminded that the “British Government’s clear position is in favour of staying” with the European Union. TCI Premier & Governor gives “all-clear” after Hurricane Irma
