What are the names of the islands in the US Virgin Islands?

The three biggest are St. Croix, St. Thomas, St. John, and newly Water Island . There are many other smaller ones, some of which are inhabited, but can only be reached by boat from one of the others,Such as, Buck Island and Protestant Cay(Hotel on the Cay)

I live on one of them in the U.S.V.I.

Note that Water Islands is not 'newly' a Virgin Island. There is some confusion among the local population because of inaccurate public relations attempts by the Water Island population. Water Island has always been under the jurisdiction of the Virgin Islands. However, the deed for the land was held by the Federal government. In two separate transactions, 8 years apart, portions of the island were deeded to the residents with uninhabited areas being deeded to the Government of the Virgin Islands.

Jurisdiction-ally, the Virgin Islands Government maintained control over Water Islands since the purchase of the islands in 1917 by the United States of America. In other words, while the federal government held the deed, matters relating to Water Island were handled the same as with any land or home owner in the Virgin Islands.

Water Island residents voted in the the District of St. Thomas-St. John, obtained their drivers licenses in the District, paid their taxes to the Virgin Islands and utilized Virgin Islands public services such as police, fire, sanitation, etc. Criminal matters were also handled in Virgin Islands courts.

It is inaccurate to consider Water Island 'newly' added.

How do you tell some one you can't do something for them?

If an individual is asking you to do something you really can not do for them, there is nothing wrong with telling them the truth. If it is possible, you should try to explain why you can not do it (if it is indeed a legitimate reason). However, I believe you should (out of sincerity) attempt to help him/her by exploring other options or alternatives. In this way the individual knows you are concerned about their circumstances.
