    The airport expansion was discussed in the Island Packet today, Mar. 25.  The article noted this, related to Mary's (?) comment last night during our discussion:  "The congregation at St. James Historic Baptist Church is preparing to relocate from its original site, where native islanders have been gathering to worship since 1886. When the airport’s runway expanded in 2018, its runway protection zone enveloped the church’s location. The FAA recommends airports own the buildings in the safety zones and that people not gather there, since most aircraft issues arise during takeoff and landing."  Pretty sad.
