While the bin sites are designated for household waste only, many residents report routinely seeing old appliances pile up near the dumpsters. On my morning walk today, I noticed several refrigerators left at the Great Cruz Bay dumpsters under the signs that say there is smaller one that says noncompactable items need to be taken to the transfer station, said one St. John resident. There was also a mini refrigerator next to the can recycling. Obviously no one is situation. Anyone disposing of appliances, batteries, hazardous chemicals or construction waste, must take the items to the Susanaberg Transhost special events to collect items like electronic devices and offer educational outreach programs. WMA relies upon residents to report illegal dumping at bin sites. Anyone who sees illegally dumped trash should call WMA at (340) 774-2141 or check out the author itys website at to submit a report via email. The bottom line, according to residents, is to keep St. John clean. I think a little more effort is needed to keep our island clean and beautiful, said a resident. Trash along the roads and dumpsters is something people visiting remember. We need to make every effort to keep our land and water pristine, a place we want to live and people want to visit.Residents Fed Up With Illegal Dumping at Trash Bin SitesSt. John Tradewinds News PhotosRefrigerators and appliances routinely show up at island dumpsters.

The team arrived on St. John on Wednesday, May 29, and met with small groups of stakeholders during the day.

By Jaime Elliott St. John Tradewinds After more than 100 Gifft Hill School students took home brand new, free New Balance sneakers in February, the school will soon receive an array of soccer balls, jump ropes, play parachutes and more from the sneaker company. students took part in the Athletics, Community, Education (ACE) Your Goals Program, in collaboration with New Balance. The program required students to keep a log of their exercise, meals and community service projects. The students worked hard to meet their personal goals, participated in numerous sports and after school activities, and gave back to our community in myriad ways, said GHS development director Beth Jones. Students kept a nutrition chart for two weeks, logged their physical activity for 20 days, took part in after school sports or exercise goals, which they met, hosted sports clinics for younger athletes and logged at least 10 hours of community service in order to qualify for free sneakers. GHS also donated 187 new and gently used sneakers to its partner school in Uganda and for needy families in the territory. A total of 110 students, out of 160 who attempted, met their goals earning them free New Balance sneakers which were distributed in February. While receiving free sneakers from New Balance was thrilling for the students, GHS was nominated to be recognized as a Move the World charter, explained New Balance sales representative Scott Gregory. New Balances mantra Move the World is driven by the fact that approximately 50 percent of all giving from the New Balance Foundation, their charitable arm, goes towards wiping out childhood obesity, said Gregory, who has worked for New Balance for 37 years and owns a home on St. John. That said, everyone within the New Balance organization is always looking for ways to exemplify that drive. Gifft Hill was the perfect place for my wife Carol and I to help bring that to life. Gregory and his wife were inspired to support GHS thanks to a member of the schools board of trustees, he explained. Having owned a home on St. John for several years we feel such a part of the community and have made such wonderful friends, said Gregory. In this case it was our buddy Jan Courlas, a member of the GHS Board of Trustees, that enlightened us to the wonderful things GHS is doing for the kids, their families, and for St John. Not only did the tireless and speak to us, but the diversity, exuberance and smiles of the children touched us deeply, said the New Balance sales representative. While Gregorys have donated funds to GHS, the couple was looking for a way to expand on cially, but our connection with New Balance, as their sales rep in New England for the last 37years, gave us a unique ability to expand on that, said Gregory. We asked, What more can be done, while hopefully teaching the kids great life skills in the process. Working with GHS administrators, New Balance came up with the ACE Your Goals program, Gregory explained. Ace Your Goals is a program unique to GHS that came out of a collaboration with all the administrators at GHS, he said. Hopefully it will help to lay a strong foundation with the children with respect to how important being active, helping others, and getting a great education are to their future. After awarding the 110 students their free New Balance sneakers, however, Gregory still wanted to help GHS. While attending an international sales meeting in April, Gregory nominated GHS to be recognized for exemplifying the companys Move the World char ter. This past April all the New Balance personnel tied to their global marketing and sales teams converged on Boston, Massachusetts, for the international sales meeting, said Gregory. There were 700 of us and one night of the meetings was devoted to community outreach awards. Out of the 700 reps in attenchosen, Gregory explained. recognized from around the globe for embracing of the Move the World charter, he said. This years winners were from Hong Kong, Australia, South Africa, New Hampshire, and St. John. Each Move the World Service Award winner is slated to receive a Movement Pack which will include sports equipment like soccer balls, jump ropes and play parachutes, supplies like chalk and jer seys and even magazine subscription including Chop Chop and Sports Illustrated, according to Gregory. GHS will receive the Movement Pack from New Balance soon. For Gregory, helping GHS is a worthwhile investment, he explained. All the children are so inspired and inspiring, said Gregory. What can be better than each of us helping in our own small way to nurture that growth? The dividends are so much larger than the investment.6 St. John Tradewinds, June 3-9, 2013 New Balance sales representative Scott GregoryGHS Students Earn Free New Balance Sneakers and More for ACE-ing their Goals PO BOX 429, ST.

So I thought it would be a good time to pass along some life saving hurricane preparedness tips. Being informed is a critical part of getting through the hurricane season unscathed. Residents of St. John have resources available to them. Information sources include local radio stations and weather updates on a computer or Ipad. Have a battery-powered radio with spare batteries and a charging source for the computer or Ipad. We also suggest that you stock up on nonperishable In addition, we should all be listening for updates and instructions from the VITEMA manager. If people are prepared for a storm, the emergency responders wont be overwhelmed in dealing with the that occur. Afterwards, not to get out and sight see. After the storm, please stay off the roads to make it easier for emergency vehicles to respond to calls for assistance. There should always be some level of prepared ness when it comes to the basics. FEMA states that building a disaster supply kit and developing an emergency plan that maps out how family members will communicate with each other quake. Also, we should be getting our storm panels ready along with the fasteners, tools and ladders we will need to attach the panels. We should also think about the aftermath of a natural disaster. Be sure that we are well stocked with nonperishable food items and drinking water along with any medications we may need. Key documents and phone numbers should be located in a safe loca tion. Lets not forget about our pets. They will also need support during and after a natural disaster. Have plenty of pet food, medications and water on hand for them. Food essentials include ready to eat canned meats, fant formulas and food for persons with special diets. Cereals, peanut butter, jelly, crackers, nuts, dried fruits are good. And have one gallon of water per day per person on hand.

We just keep bulldozing more and more trash into our landronmental concerns. Just because something is covered over in dirt does not mean it just goes away. Its actually like a ticking time bomb, just waiting to harm us later on. When we have heavy rains, the rainwater leaches through the gar bage, creating a toxic plume that contaminates our groundwater and also enter our beautiful pristine waters, sickening or killing whatturtles, coral, and who knows what else. This ancient way of disposing our trash needs to stop and the sooner the better! Recycling is a great solution to help the environment, and we have made a small beginning with our volunteer-run aluminum recycling program on St John.

What people often dont realize is that recycling is also a moneymaker. Almost everything sidered a commodity in todays markets. Check out these prices that recyclers are paying per pound: Aluminum cans 50 lbs+ = $0.47 (it takes about 32 cans to make one pound) Copper $2.55 Lead $0.27 Brass $1.65 Paper $0.01 Car batteries $0.23 Stainless steel $0.32 Plastics $0.06 Glass $0.12 Yes, many of these numbers are stateside quoted prices, and we still have to get the materials to the buyer. However, it is still a far betwe are using now. If you go up to the states or over to Europe, you can see examples all over that recycling does work. It helps the environment, creates jobs, and makes cents as in money! We, the people of the Virgin Islands, need to tell our senators and our governor that our islands need recycling now!

The ever-widening hole in Centerline Road near Coral Bay is very troubling, for many reasons. 1. Centerline Road, like many roads in the territory, is funded partially or fully by funds from the Federal Highway Administration. Because of this, roads have to meet mandated criteria for width, signage, barriers, However, if roads have less than a certain amount is necessary for strict compliance with all criteria. But still, we drive on it and expect at least minimum quality. 2. This particular area where the road is collaps ing is a remnant from Tropical Storm Otto, October, 2010. That was over two and one half years ago. DPW has performed the following repairs on this section of road during that time placement of a few cones on the berm 3. St. John has one and only one access road to Coral Bay. We were promised that funds were allocat ed for two alternate routes. Signs were placed, articles were published in the papers. And then the signs were taken down and we found out that the funds were used for an alternative purpose. Since we dont have any autonomy (our one senator is only one-third dedicated to St. John, our island manager lives on St. Thomas, our island planner moved to St. Thomas for another job and was never replaced, and we have no island council or equiva lent), we have little or no say in things. Current rumors are that a drainage pipe under the road is broken, causing further and potentially disastrous erosion. A big rain storm at this point might make the only road into Coral Bay impassible. Wed all say We told you so, but what good would that do? this hole is not a solution. There are no signs uphill warning motorists of one lane ahead or similar. Will accidents occur? Can a fully-loaded water truck or cement truck stop in time where the road transitions to one lane? Those 4,500 gallons of water weigh about 18 tons. Add the truck weight, multiply by 30 mph, and you get loads of inertia. A car would be crushed. The person responsible for action is Daryl Smalls, Commissioner of DPW. There has to be some funds available somewhere. If not, then the Senate should allocate some emergency funds and get an immediate repair started. welcome.

European environmentalists push burning trees in order energy. What happens will be exactly opposite: burning trees increases carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Growth of the new trees will replace this, but it will take 100 years to do it. In addition, the old trees if they remain growing, would remove the carbon dioxide in a substantial way, approximately doubling the size of the standing trees on account of carbon dioxide, removed from the atmosphere. The advocates of burning trees for renewable energy need basic arithmetic to realize that it is exactly the opposite what is going to happen if they cut the living tree and burn it. The net result of this insanity will be a tremendous increase of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Zdenek Hruza, MD, PhD St. John, V.I.Environmental IdiocyThe guests are all gone....forever.

I want to address issues of concern you, the community we serve, have about the Police Department, and the trust that is expected from us to you. As the lead law enforcement agency in the Virgin Islands, the Police Department is entrusted by every person in this community to protect life and property, to enforce the laws of the Virgin Islands, and to be the buffer between each of you and the criminal element. In recent days, two ranking Law Enforcement per sonnel were arrested and charged with a series of serious crimes. While I understand that any person arrested is innocent until proven guilty, and an arrest is just the beginning of a process which in most instances ends up in a trial to determine guilt or innocence, I feel these arrests were once again black eyes to Law Enforcement territory-wide, negatively affecting the publics perception of us. As Police Commissioner Designee I oversee over ber of Civilian Support Staff. I want to assure you working, conscientious, dedicated and honest people, with the best intentions in mind while serving each of you.

Training Cadres constantly caution them to do the right thing all the times, whether someone is watching, or not. When I was Police Chief for the St. Thomas/St. John District, I had the opportunity to address a number of graduating classes. In each and every address I reiterated some of the pitfalls that would lead to the end of their police careers, including domestic violence, using their badge for personal gain, or their authority to commit illegal acts against the very same people they swore to protect and serve. to opportunities wherein they can choose to take the high road, or the low road. I urge all law enforcement is just not worth it. Eventually, wrongdoings come to light with detrimental consequences, including the fact of the pain their wrongdoing causes their chil dren, parents, family, friends and loved ones. It is a shame that families have to suffer because of the actions of a loved one who they too entrusted to protect and serve.

This forecast should not be met with a half-hearted response; we must all take it very seriously and commit to prepare. In previous years, we have had a few false alarms. It has also been a few years since we experienced hurricanes of catastrophic proportions such as Hugo and Marilyn. Yet, as Virgin Islanders, we have learned not to let our guard down. We all saw the devastation and destruction from the tornado in Moore, Oklahoma, which left a trail of destruction and misery for many families and businesses. We know that hurricanes are unpredictable, and no one can prevent them because they are acts of nature. However, we have learned that we can lessen their impact by preparing in advance to safeguard life and property as best we can. Let us continue to be urgent about this and not stress ourselves out by starting preparations at the last minute.

Lets start with a territorial issue electricity. mittee on Energy and Environmental Protection, Aaron Willis ships experienced by his business due to high WAPA bills and unreliable service. We took testimony on how the energy crisis is affecting Virgin Islanders and what we can do about it. Working with my colleagues, we have come up with proposed remedies that can provide short term, mid-term, and long-term relief. We also have a resolution that declares an energy emergency, which may position us for additional Federal environmental nature. We will examine three of these four pieces of Legislation at the next hearing which is on St. Thomas on June 11. It will be an exciting hearing because we will be openly considering a declaration of energy emergency, a capping of the LEAC for 24 months, privatization and/or deregulation of WAPA. The WAPA Chairman and Director want the Legislature to do nothing, and merely trust that WAPA is doing all that it can to bring down rates. They have even engaged in scare tactics. As chair man of the Energy Committee, my job is to allow my committee members to soberly look at all options. We may need your activism. WAPA could bring dozens of WAPA workers to the June 11 meeting, which could create a chilling effect on legislators willingness to take meaningful action. If, however, dozens or hundreds of Virgin Islanders who want relief were to attend the June 11 hearing, this should encourage legislators to take bold action. Thats how democracy works. You can see the Energy Plan at, click on Ener gy Plan on the homepage. If you dont have a computer, visit our and Catherine Stephen will assist you with a paper copy. As outlined in my last Senator at Large report, the CLEAN Coalition is working with us to create a net-zero substation for the entire island of St. John. We would feed solar power into the grid by day, and withdraw it by night. Net, St. John would produce 100 percent of its power usage. Plans for this are moving forward, and a meeting of the Energy Committee will be hosted on St. John in July on this subject. On St. John, we are still suffering with Centerline Road in a state of imminent collapse after 18 months of promises from public works. Catherine Stephen has maintained of log of the persistent efforts to get the road repairs completed. This has been forwarded to Diane Capehart, Chair of the Government Services committee, along with a letter requesting that the Commissioner of Public Works and his staff be subpoenaed before the committee to answer questions on the road issues. (I am the Vice Chairman of that committee.) Thanks to Cid Hamling and other community activists for creating the letter/petition. It really helps to want it to boil! We will report on both these issues and more in upcoming Senator at Large reports. The governor must submit the this month. It is important that he discontinue the past practice of raiding the St. John Capital Improvement Fund in order to haul trash from the Susannaberg Transfer Station to the Bovoni Dump. We need a Capital Improvement Fund for real capital improvements. An example, legitimate use would be to purchase land to allow the Waste Management Authority to construct a true Convenience Center that would allow proper recycling on St. John. I mention this to show that we trash-related capital improvements. We are against using the Capital Improvement Funds for recurring, operational expenses. The danger is that the gover nor got used to crisis budgeting, where money was transferred willy-nillly between accounts in a structureless and reactive manner. Thats no way to run a government. We can and must do better. It was not wholly the gover nors fault, as the 29th Legislature failed to assert its proper role as instead abdicated that authority to the governor. You, the voters, have sent us a new group of legislators, and I intend to work with them to properly assert our role as responsible stewards of public funds. This includes managing the monies carefully and transparently. A number of constituents asked me to address the swearing-in ser vice on St. John last January.

lack of public realm, inadequate transit and environmental threats, Steinberg said. While there is mistrust of government, there is a need for economic opportunities and improved infrastructure like sewage and paved roads. What was obvious to the SDAT was that something needs to be done, Steinberg added. Doing nothing is not an option, he said. To avoid intensive development and to preserve the Coral Bay that you all love, the time to act is now. Each team member offered suggestions from their area of expertise as a way to solve some of the problems facing the area while creating vibrant economic opportunities. Seattle-based Civil Engineer Tom Von Schrader explained how letting nature lead the way could help Coral Bay implement green development. Working with government agencies and commu nity groups, residents should compile a manual of Best Management Practices which should then be enforced, Von Schrader explained. ing with steep slope design and stormwater, he said. Develop, codify and enforce these BMPs. Von Schrader also suggested installing bioswales, using porous pavement materials and creating green roofs. As a former V.I. National Park employee, coral reef specialist Jessica Hornbeck explained how the natural resources are worthy of protection and suggested steps to protect the bay. Well-documented studies which inventory the biodiversity of the bay, sediment studies, coral health studies and more will help people to realize the areas needs and how to address them, Hornbeck explained. Identify the resources that are stressed and contin ue to partner with local and national organizations on studies and collecting evidence and data, she said. As a specialist in urban design and landscape, Louisiana-based Diane Jones, ASLA, RLA, created a conceptual design for Coral Bay which incorporated distinct civic and community, commercial and cultural spaces all linked by vehicular and pedestrian circulation. This is one example of how to protect the resources here while taking advantage of development opportunities, she said. Jones design included the needs expressed by citi zens water access and parking while adding their wish list walking trails and paths, a cultural heritage corridor and limited development all in a planned and well-managed concept. Opportunities for visitors to enjoy experiential tourism was an important part of that community concept, explained Megan Elper Wood, founder of The International Ecotourism Society and a Core Instructor for the graduate school for Sustainability and Environmental Management at Harvard University Extension. This idea of experiential tourism is the hottest trend in travel right now, said Elper Wood. Travel ers no longer want to be passive; they want to engage and be active. They dont want to just go out on a boat, for example, they want to get into the water. Coral Bay should build on its resources and heritage while creating areas for people to interact, not be separated, Elper Wood explained. You should build on your heritage in a moder ate and smart fashion, she said. This should not be done in a haphazard way. This is an instance where planning will really pay off. Working with graduate student and eco-tourism professional Cristienne de Souza, Elper Wood suggested creating opportunities for visitors to access the areas natural resources, and engage with the local community as ways to create meaningful experi ences. In order to build a diverse and inclusive sustainable community, Coral Bay should form a Community Development Corporation, explained Anglin. Many people have feelings of powerlessness here, said Anglin. You want the capacity to plan should develop a local community-based develop ment corporation which would make a premium of community self-determination and voice. mission and set of goals to realize a future for the area that offers opportunity for all residents in a planned and self-determined way, Anglin explained. Although the AIA SDAT members shared a lot of information with residents last week, the group urged citizens not to feel overwhelmed. Its important to not get paralyzed by the breadth of this, said Steinberg. There are a few early action steps you can do right now that will make a differ ence. Steinberg suggested moving the Coral Bay dumpster area to a different, less-visible location off the the area and starting to create a cultural heritage inventory. CBCC in three months.
