St. John Tradewinds DOL Commissioner Shares Keys To Success with StudentsCommissioner Albert Bryan shares keys to success with V.I. Scholars If You Bought a TV, Monitor or Notebook Computer That Contained an LCD Flat Panel ScreenFile a Claim Now to Get Money from Settlements Totaling Almost $1.1 Billion. This is the second notice in this case. Settlements have now been reached with AU Optronics, LG Display and Toshiba (New Settlements). The Court previously approved Settlements with seven other Defendants. Members of the Statewide Damages Classes can le a claim now to get a payment from all Settlements (see below). What are the lawsuits about? The lawsuits claim that the Defendants conspired to x, raise, maintain or stabilize prices of thin lm transistor liquid crystal display (TFT-LCD or LCD) Flat Panels, resulting in overcharges to consumers who bought TVs, monitors or notebook computers containing Flat Panels. The Defendants deny Plaintiffs allegations or that consumers paid any overcharge. The Court has not decided who is right. Who is included in the lawsuits? This case has recovered money for consumers in 24 states and the District of Columbia and governmental entities in eight states, and nationwide injunctive relief to stop the Defendants alleged behavior. Statewide Damages Classes: Generally, include any person or business that indirectly purchased a TFT-LCD Flat Panel, which had been incorporated in a TV, monitor or notebook computer, from any of the Defendants or Quanta Display Inc., from January 1, 1999 to December 31, 2006, for their own use and not for resale, while residing in the 24 states or the District of Columbia. Indirectly means that you purchased the product containing the LCD Flat Panel from someone other than the manufacturer of the LCD Flat Panel. The purchase must have been made in the same state where the person or business resided. Businesses in Rhode Island and Missouri and indirect purchasers who also had direct purchases (previously not included) may now participate in all 10 Settlements. For More Information: 1-855-225-1886 www.LCDclass.com Text: LCDclass to 96000 (Text messaging rates may apply) Legal Notice The 24 states are: AZ, AR, CA, FL, HI, IA, KS, ME, MA, MI, MN, MS, MO, NV, NM, NY, NC, ND, RI, SD, TN, VT, WV and WI. See specic class denitions at www.LCDclass.com. Nationwide Class: Includes any person or business that indirectly purchased in the United States, a TFT-LCD Flat Panel, which had been incorporated in a TV, monitor or notebook computer, from any of the Defendants or Quanta Display Inc., between January 1, 1999 and February 13, 2012, for their own use and not for resale, and resided in the United States on February 13, 2012. Attorneys General Actions: The Attorneys General of AR, CA, FL, MI, MO, NY, WV and WI are participating in these Settlements to resolve related claims arising from the same allegations as asserted in the class actions: (1) on behalf of state residents under state law and the doctrine of parens patriae, which allows a state to bring a lawsuit on behalf of its citizens, and/or for governmental entities; and (2) for civil penalties. What do the Settlements provide? Three New Settlements totaling $543,500,000 are being presented to the Court for approval. In addition, AU Optronics and LG Display are making payments to resolve claims for civil penalties brought by the Attorneys General. To the extent AU Optronics, LG Display and Toshiba continue to manufacture LCD Flat Panels, they have agreed not to engage in conduct that is at issue in these lawsuits and/or will establish (or maintain) a program to educate their employees about complying with the law. The combined Settlement Fund (totaling $1,082,055,647) will be used to pay individual and business consumers in the 24 states and DC. A portion of the Settlement Fund will be distributed to governmental entities in the eight states with Attorneys General Actions. Payments will be based on the number of valid claims led as well as on the number/type of LCD Flat Panel products you purchased. It is expected that a minimum payment of $25 will be made to all Class Members who submit a valid claim. It is possible that any money remaining after claims are paid will be distributed to charities, governmental entities or other beneciaries approved by the Court. More details are provided in the Settlement Agreements and other documents available at www.LCDclass.com, or by calling the toll-free number below. The cost to administer the Settlements, attorneys fees, costs and expenses, and awards to the Class Representatives will come out of the Settlement Fund. Plaintiffs counsel will request attorneys fees not to exceed one-third of the Settlement Fund, plus reimbursement of costs and expenses. How can I get a payment? You must submit a Claim Form to get a payment. You can submit a claim online or by mail. The deadline to submit a claim is December 6, 2012. Claim Forms are available at the website or by calling 1-855-225-1886. What are my rights? The Court will hold a hearing on November 29, 2012 to consider whether to approve the New Settlements. If you stay in the Classes, you may object to the New Settlements, plan of distribution, attorneys fees and costs, and awards to Class Representatives by October 9, 2012. You or your own lawyer may appear and speak at the hearing at your own expense. With the exception noted below, the rst notice gave you an opportunity to exclude yourself. If you did not exclude yourself, you have given up your right to sue the Defendants on your own for the claims in this case. Only individuals and businesses that indirectly purchased an LCD Flat Panel: (1) while residing in Arkansas; (2) while residing in Missouri or Rhode Island that was not primarily for household or personal use; or (3) that had a direct purchase in addition to an indirect purchase, have until October 9, 2012 to exclude themselves from the litigation involving AU Optronics, LG Display and Toshiba. If you reside outside of the 24 states and the District of Columbia you keep any right you may have to sue the Defendants for monetary relief.

Your Island Home: Designing the Dream by Karen Vahling, Island Green Building AssociationDo you own a piece of the rock, or some land in paradise? Whether you are an architect yourself or plan to hire one, designing a new home in the Virgin Islands can be a dream come true. Green building is the key to preserving the health and beauty of our island, but also to saving money.Build Green, Save GreenIts true: island building is very expensive, often triple the cost of stateside projects. Fortunately, green building can save big money. When designing a home, pay attention to: 1) Minimizing the area a heavy equipment operator clears Track hoe rates can add up quickly Design a short driveway and low-footprint home Less disturbance means less to maintain 2) Maximizing energy efciency and use of renewable energy Plan passive cooling features to save air conditioning costs Conserve energy for lighting using solar and L.E.D. bulbs and xtures Use solar and renewable energy systems that pay for themselves within a few years of operation 3) Buying recycled/reusable materials.Build Green, Keep Waters CleanKeep the following guidelines for erosion prevention and sediment control in mind when designing a home to reduce sediment transport offsite and down to our crystalline waters and coral reefs and seagrass beds: 1) Minimize disturbance of existing vegetation 2) Phase construction and schedule to work during dry weather 3) Protect, retain and replant exposed soil immediately 4) Avoid concentrating water ow; if necessary, slow it down and spread it out 5) Encourage water inltration in your design plan 6) Regularly inspect and maintain erosion and sediment controls Steep slopes, tropical rains and poor construction can harm our coral reefs, and views. Green LandscapesMatch the landscaping to the features of the property. Get a careful assessment of valuable native plants and trees before you cut! Create a plan that minimizes disruption to natural features and vegetation. Emphasize the use of native plants that work in harmony with the house. Before you hire an architect or beginning designing a home, familiarize yourself with guidelines from the Department of Planning and Natural Resources (DPNR): http://building-permits. dpnr.gov.vi/ and information sources such as the Island Green Building Association: http://www.igbavi.org/. Doing so can save precious time and money as the adventure of building your island dream home begins. Look for upcoming green building workshops throughout the Territory as part of NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program efforts through NOAA Fisheries Caribbean Field Ofce. As an important partner in the Green Building effort, you can visit the IGBA website to stay informed:www.igbavi.org
