Lifeguard Kie Ransom gives her boss, Sports, Parks and Recreation Commissioner Calvert White, a push in a beach buggy at Cramer Park on St. Croix. The buggy is designed to allow wheelchair-bound individuals to cross a sandy beach and enjoy the waves. White thanked the department’s maintenance staff for quickly putting together the chair and installing an AccessMat so department staff could give the new equipment a dry run before placing them at five beaches in the territory — two on St. Croix, two on St. Thomas and one on St. John. The mats and chairs are being installed to make it easier for the physically disabled and elderly to enjoy the territory’s beaches.
