Jones recently launched United Resources, a more cost effective alternative to WMAs program of collecting fees for the tires and then relying upon vendors to ensure they disposed of properly. a vendor in the mainland who will purchase the tires. United Resources offers vendors a cheaper way to dispose of their tires and the knowledge that the material is being reused, explained Jones. Basically, were into recycling and the whole green movement, Jones said. To that end, weve decided to start providing scrap tire disposal. Right now we have in place contracts with several companies on St. John to dispose of their tires. We collect the tires and when we have a container full, we have a contractor at a facility on the mainland who will either shred them to sell the by-product or utilize the rubber for civil engineer ing projects or fuel, said Jones. Were also hoping this helps spread awareness. A graduate of Florida Atlantic University with a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering, and an employee of the Department of Public Works, Jones saw the need for a company Being out on the roads in the territory, you do see illegally dumped scrap tires, said Jones. We saw the need for this and were hoping it will help to cut down on illegal dumping. In the future, Jones hopes to be able to open a facility to handle scrap tires right here in the terri tory, he added. my goal is instead of shipping out the scrap tires to the mainland be processed to construct a plant locally, said Jones. That would save on shipping and then we would have a product to sell to the mainland and locally. For more information about Jones and United Resources, email By Iggy W ana, Gardening Editor St. John Tradewinds Twelfth-grader, Herbert Farmer, has brought in a 103.2-pound Scotch bonnet. This was a record for a still green, Caribbean-variety of a hot chili pepper. Under the guidance of the plant whisperer Doctor Dade, Sister Sara and interns from Cornville Community College with their EARTH (Eat A Radish Thats Hot) program, Herb was happy to grow a gigantic, practically inedible pepper. He potted seeds that he got from Josephine Holy in a soilless mix and then fought off the pearlypowdery mildew, soft scale, hard scale, hard disk viruses, software bugs, computer worms, pigs, donkeys, iguanas, deer, goats and park rangers to name just a few pests. The single pepper grew over a period of two years to reach the Super-Duper-Whopper size. This is the size category designated by the Goodness-Gracious Book of World Records. Because of its unusually large size and long growing time, it is estimated that this Scotch bonnet will read 100,000,000 to 350,000,000 on the Scoville scale. For comparison, most jalape o peppers have a heat rating of 2,500 to 8,000 Scoville units. This pepper would leave a ring of Niles Chair, Chairman of the Gifffft Hill School Bored, said that as part of the EARTH program students prepared hors doeuvres using a smaller, quarter-pounder Scotch bonnet. When they cut the pepper, there was a mushroom-shaped cloud and sinuses were cleared at Skinnys, 6.2 Tuff miles upwind, he said. As part of the GffffHS Seed2Table project, Herb coolly sold the hot pepper to Ronald Klunkerberg who owns Klunkerberg Pizza in Cruz Bay. Nothing is inedible, said Klunkerberg. He is a widely-recognized expert in these mat ters. Herb Farmer has now graduated, but the money he raised goes to the Gifffft Hill School to buy seeds to cover the island with hot peppers and probably Christmas holly and catch n keep.

St. John Tradewinds, June 24-30, 2013 9 Bird Rehabilitation Is Local Residents Labor of Love By Judy Buchholz Special to St. John Tradewinds For Phyllis Benton, its a labor of love. For the injured, abandoned or orphaned migratory wild birds of St. John, its a life saver. Benton is the islands federally permitted migratory wild bird rehabilitator, a position which is non-paying, sometimes 24-hours a with three very part-time volunteer helpers and without a complete funding source. Benton who cares for the injured, or phaned or abandoned birds in her home in Upper Carolina has rehabilitated at some time or other almost all the migratory wild bird species found on St. John, from hummingbirds to pelicans. Recently Benton had in her care housed either on her screened in porch and in her bathroom a hatchling hummingbird that came in weighing 1.8 grams, a young mangrove cuckoo, a young scaly naped pigeon and a baby bananaquit which was found lying on its back on the Reef Bay Trail. All the birds are fed regularly from dawn to dusk. The hatchling hummingbird was found on the ground by locals on Harolds Way. Possibly a casualty of tree trimming in the area, the hatchling needs feeding every 30 protein-added hummingbird formula. The mangrove cuckoo, which was found by locals in their yard on Ajax Peak, needs feeding every hour or so and eats live meal worms fed by hand from Benton. The scaly naped pigeon, which was reported to have fallen from mangrove trees into water in Coral Bay and was called to Bentons attention by several local grade school students, eats three to four times a day and is fed a special mixture along with small pieces of local papaya. The bananaquit, which was found by vacationers from Florida and taken to the Vir gin Islands Environmental Resource Station, where staff member Randy Fish called Benton, is given a special formula with protein supplement from a syringe. The bananaquit has started to drink the formula on its own, are developing from the fruit dish placed in its cage. Once the little guy is interested enough ready for release, Benton said. I want to make sure hes eating on his own. The tiny hummingbird also will soon will develop, Benton explained. Hummingbirds also eat insects, she said. Theyre not just nectar or sugar water feeders. Theyll get insects from the nectar or you may seem them in the trees pecking at the leaves theyre eating aphids or other small insects. The bananaquit and the hummingbird they can go out on their own, Benton said. The ultimate goal for all birds I take in is to give them the skills to live on their own in the wild. They need to be able to self-feed, themselves. Once Benton takes a bird for rehabilita tion, she evaluates its situation. Is it young; is it an older bird; does there appear to be any damage to the wings, legs, eyes, head; how mobile is it; how are its motor functions; is it dehydrated? She then takes appropriate steps based on her knowledge and experience as well St. John Tradewinds News Photos by Judy Buchholz Benton lets a young scaly naped pigeon which was feeds it, above.

St. John Tradewinds, June 24-30, 2013 13 I G L by Lovango Cay resident Dan Boyd Whole House Electrical Monitors St. John Tradewinds Would you like to save 15 per cent or more on your monthly WAPA bill? You can, and it is not too hard or expensive to do. A few years ago, I was visiting my sister in Cape Cod, and she showed me her Cape Power and Light bill online with another screen that showed her households real-time energy consumption. She could pinpoint when she was using the most electricity. This simple tool taught her and her family to start turning off lights and appliances when they were not in use. They cut their bill by more than 15 percent a month just by being able to monitor their real time electrical consumption. And when they really put their minds to it, they saved over 40 percent a month. Here in the Virgin Islands, the average electrical consumption is around 1.8 kilowatts per hour. Multiply that by 24 hours in a day = 43.2 kWs daily, times 30 days in a month = 1,296 kWs monthly. With WAPA rates at $0.50 per kW, that means the average bill is 15% savings comes out to $97.20 per month. If you were to save 40 percent, you would save $259.20 monthly! Although WAPA doesnt provide online real-time monitoring of your power consumption, there are now many devices on the market that will do just that. Some brand names to look for include WattsOn, Black and Deckers Power Monitor, Onzo, and TED The Electrical Detective. Some systems can show you a really high level of detail. For example, Agilewaves is a highly per sonalized power monitor that can rooms, appliances, or even light switches. The detail provided is great for larger homes as well as for homes that have a solar array or wind turbine, because Agilewaves can track both the incoming energy as well as what is consumed. Prices for these systems vary greatly. The Power Monitor is about $100, whereas complex dashboards like Agilewaves require contacting the company for needs. Once you can see, in real time, how much energy youre using, its much easier to make small adjustments that add up to savings. But its not just about saving money its about helping the environment. The less electricity you use, the less carbon is emitted into the atmosphere. We all win then! For a greener tomorrow. Dan Boyd of Island Solar is a thorized vendor.

We arrived at your beautiful island on May 15, 2013. I am very upset about the way we were treated We had just arrived on the 3 p.m. ferry. My husband went to rent a car and got lost and confused getting back to the dock to pick us up. He went around and around trying to get to us. where we were by using the one way roads and left side driving. to ask for her help and assistance. She motioned for him to pull forward. She then got out of her car and wrote him a ticket for going past the Do Not Enter sign. She was very unfriendly and rude. She never once offered any help or assistance. She told him he needed to read the signs! He agreed with her that he went past the sign but he needed her help. All she did was get back in her car! The police motto is To Protect and Serve. We received no service or help. Finally the woman from our rental house arrived and helped my husband. lands. The people I spoke to after that were friendly and helpful; but that one incident overshadowed all trip and the people we met. I have been a registered nurse for 45 years and deal with the public every day. I feel the behavior and ata public servant. Kay W right, Pleasant Plains, Illinois St. John Tradewinds, June 24-30, 2013 15 Students Ask Legislators T o Fix Road T o Their School Unacceptable Behavior from Public ServantT o Our Legislators, On behalf of the Guy H. Benjamin School, we poJohn, so the bus can safely travel to and from school, with no harm or tragedy, to our students, staff and also others traveling the road on a daily basis. I suggest you come out and view the road and see if you would be comfortable having your children travel over this road on a daily basis. If the road collapses, we will be cut off from obtaining food, water, and emergency vehicles. We will not be able to travel to and from Coral Bay to Cruz Bay, to school, or to work. With more rain in the forecast, and a very active hur ricane season predicted from now until November, the road could collapse at any minute. It is now a one lane road on a sharp corner near Upper Carolina. An accident could happen at any time. Each time a cement truck, water truck, bus or other large truck passes over this area, the road cracks a little more. There are two roads. Kings Hill Road, which goes from Coral Bay by Love City Mini Mart up to the Columbia Yogurt Stand on Route 10. This is a one lane dirt road, no room for trucks, buses or large cars without four wheel drive. The road over Bordeaux Mountain is narrow, not completely paved, and unsuitable for trucks, emer gency vehicles and buses or cars without four wheel drives. Is it going to take a tragedy for you to repair this road? We hope you take this letter seriously as it is very important to us and we feel our lives are endangered. This is a federally funded access road, and the repairs should therefore be paid by the federal government. This is an urgent emergency that needs your atten tion immediately. Sincerely, Guy Benjamin School, 6th Grade Class Coral Bay, St. John Road Work Needed on Route 108 As Well T o DPW Commissioner Smalls and Mr. Brathwaite, Thank you for agreeing to do immediate emergency repairs on Route 10. Our backup access road Route 108 also needs some immediate maintenance with repairing asphalt, so that ordinary cars or an ambulance can use it. A few days ago I drove Rt. 108 from the Carolina Valley at Rt. 107 up to the intersection of Rt. 10 at Chateau Bordeaux, in two wheel drive. It took me 12 minutes. The remaining unpaved dirt road area is level and graded reasonably well. However, there is a very short asphalt stretch just after the dirt portion that is hilly and narrow one lane and is a moonscape of potholes you can break an axle in. This short steep stretch right near the top of Bordeaux mountain needs immediate attention, so that this alternate access is available for more vehicles to use safely. I have also heard rumors that this whole remaining unpaved area on Route 108 is scheduled to be or provide the actual status? If so, there needs to be strong engineering attention to the drainage of water in this top of the the paved road do not lead to water impact the houses and roads below in the Bordeaux area, the National Park land, or the blue bay below.

as communication with others who rehabilitate wild birds in the states. The Florida Wildlife Rehabilitation Association, of which Benton is a board member, is one of her go to places for helpful advice. Once a bird is in rehab, she cares for the wounds is dehydrated, feeds the bird and then leaves the bird alone so that there is little human imprinting, Benton explained. The birds are not treated as pets, she added. If at all possible, young birds should either be returned to the nest or left for a time to see if the parents come to care for it before bringing it in to Benton, the bird rehabilitator explained. In the case of the recent young mangrove cuckoo, the locals found the bird in their yard and thought it had fallen from a nest on their roof. They called Benton, who came, climbed up on the roof with the property owner and determined there was a nest but not one the cuckoo would have come from. Putting it in the wrong nest would have been a death sentence. They placed the bird back in the yard, hoping the parents would come for it. That didnt happen either, so Benton brought it to her home. I had never seen a mangrove cuckoo that young, Benton said. I didnt know what it was. I sent photos to several contacts and then did an Internet search. I had noticed white spots in its mouth, which can sometimes be a sign of disease, she said. So I put white spots on roof of mouth in the search engine and discovered that was a sure sign of a mangrove cuckoo. Benton doesnt usually have four birds at once in her care. Sometimes there are none. Sometimes there is one. Sometimes more. Not all the birds survive, but most do. She receives calls about injured or abandoned birds from a variety of sources: lifeguards on the beach; wedding parties on the beach; locals; vacationers; V.I. National Park personnel; shop keepers; townspeople; boaters and more. Benton is pleased that the St. John migratory wild bird rehabilitation efforts are growing, she explained. We now have three other people who are inter ested in learning how to care for these beautiful crea tures, Benton said. Kim Nogueira, Judy Buchholz and Mary Magee have all come over for training and have helped care for injured birds when Im off island. Were always in touch by email or by telephone to discuss appropriate care. Federal regulations are precise about who can care for migratory wild birds and the training required, said Benton. Kim is a sub-permittee and Judy and Mary are working towards that goal. Some other birds which have come in for Bentons care over the years include common moorhen, magnif icent frigate bird, brown noddy, laughing gulls, zenai da doves, common ground dove, yellow-billed cuckoo, Antillean-crested hummingbird, green-throated Carib, little blue heron, yellow-crowned night heron, brown booby, brown pelicans, white-cheeked pintail, bridled quail dove, pearly eyed thrasher, black-necked stilt, merlin and great blue heron. worms, cages, syringes, various medicines, and many other supplies) out of her own pocket, with help from grant money from the V.I. Audubon Society. We are so pleased that we are able to help Phyllis and the birds in this way, said Mary Moroney, president of the Virgin Islands Audubon Society. What Phyllis does is amazing. Its truly a labor of love for her. She is so compassionate and passionate about what she does. Benton would like to add more people to the St. John Rehabilitation Program. Anyone interested in learning more about helping St. John birds through rehabilitation can contact Benton at (340) 514-8435 or by email at crabbys@ This is also the contact information to report injured or abandoned migratory wild birds.
