Training and good supervision of the Government work force, the lack of good service is costing this community too much money. Create ways to use Federal Funds wisely and not turn unspent money back to the Federal Government Continued focus on improvement in math, reading and writing skills as well as sports, music, art Our kids deserve a lot better help than we are giving them School programs on crime and gang prevention in all grades Constant training for our police officers, partnering with qualified Federal Agencies Much stricter policing and prevention of illegal guns Clean up junk cars and road side litter programs Teach kids and adults that they should stop throwing things out the window Bring WMA back under Government control, an appointed board is not capable of managing our trash problem.

Greg Milleron the ballot I will work very hard to accomplish these goals but what we really need right now is a system of electing leaders that results in responsible leadership, not a way for people to suck off the Government Teat. We need to implement a way to have District Representation, by creating Districts out of Estates and having St. John have its own Senator, not one third of a Senator. The free-for-all system now favors the incumbents because of name recognition. Every vote you wisely.

24 Attention Heavy Equipment Operators: You Have a Job to Do by Karen Vahling, Island Green Building AssociationWhether you are a property owner, contractor, construction worker, or heavy equipment operator, the way you build in the Virgin Islands affects everyone and everything that calls these islands home. Heavy equipment operators and contractors play a vital role not only in constructing buildings, but also in protecting the environment and preserving the natural beauty of our islands. Your work is your signature: a symbol of your craftsmanship that will last beyond the scope of the job. On our islands, going green is more than just a fad its a necessity in order to safeguard what we value most. And working green is about doing more with less and preserving the very amenities people seek. Every single move you make on a site is felt throughout the island. Soil loss carries off important nutrients and the base needed for native vegetation to re-grow or landscaping to take hold. Lost soils end up marine life. Poor construction practices, like improper or missing sediment and erosion control and stormwater control measures can also destroy the scenic beauty of the area, affecting property values. Poor construction practices lead to erosion, slope failures, and increased runoff that then cause decreased downstream and nearshore water quality, plants and animals, and high utility and maintenance costs. Implementing practices that prevent erosion and control sediment and runoff transport offsite can be achieved with simple steps taken before, during, and after site grading. No single approach will be successful. Rather, a combination of best management practices (BMPs) including erosion control blankets, mulching, seeding, compost, silt fences, wattles, interceptor dikes, swales, pipe slope drains, surface roughening, slope tracking, and gradient terraces are required based on the characteristics of your site. Proper maintenance of these BMPs is important to keep them working! It is also important to leave native vegetation and soils in place in as much of the site as possible to act as natural BMPs. The Department of Planning and Natural Resources can provide information on the permitted clearing area for different project types. While change is inevitable, loss of our environmental and cultural resources shouldnt be. When planned and completed responsibly, development provides a sustainable economic base for the Virgin natural diversity, ecological health, sense of community, and quality of life. Look for upcoming green building workshops throughout the Territory as part of NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program efforts through NOAA Fisheries Caribbean the Green Building effort, you can visit the IGBA website to stay informed: Heavy equipment like this leaves your signature on our island.
