ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Ms. Juliet Rogers aka ‘Yellow’ known to all for her frequency on the streets of Tortola requesting money for drinking a beverage has been hospitalised.

She has been admitted to Peebles Hospital, the government run facility on the main Island of Tortola about two weeks ago.

The reason for her admission is unclear, however our news room's sources inside the BVI Health Services Authority reported that she had surgery.

‘Yellow’, who is the sister of BVI Tourist Board Chairman Russell Harrigan, has become the symbol of homelessness and perhaps mental illness in the Virgin Islands.

Many shop and grocery store owners alleged that at times Ms. Rogers walks into their stores and remove items without paying.

Others said she is peaceful and only ask for just a $1.00 with her famous phase “do you have a dollar to spare.”

‘Yellow’ a Virgin Islander grew up on the main Island of Tortola and went to both primary and high school here. She was a skilled boat captain before she took ill.

    I used to give Yellow money all the time but I got wiser as I realized that I was only feeding her habit to her detriment. Now I ask her if she wants me to buy her something to eat and she say no she want a drink, so I keep my money. Drinking alcohol on an empty stomach is problems for your Liver.

    I hope she gets well fast and hopefully straighten up, get a job and stay off the streets and the alcohol.

    Thank you Virgin Islands News, this article answers many of the questions the general public should know about this young lady so when she gets out we can help her as its clear who has turned their backs on her. This information should have been the first to be released years ago. Effective communication.
