Who cares about special waste fees? The waste management authority is asking for public comment on their plans to charge waste fees. Right now the Waste Management Authority gets its money from the government General Fund, but they plan to implement a schedule of fees on products as are imported to the islands. Especially things that cost extra to dispose of like motor oil, lubricating oil and tires. When waste can't be landfilled it costs a lot of money to export. Right now, we all pay for that export through taxes. The Waste Management Authority wants to charge user fees. Who cares? Well, two people came out last night on St. Croix to talk about the fees. If you care about these special waste fees the public question-and-answer sessions continue this evening at six o'clock at the University Virgin Islands administration conference center. And on St. John on Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m. at Julius Sprauve School St John.

How do you make a movie when you got no funds? If you're Ed Laborde and David Edgecomb trying to finish their full length feature film called “Timeless: a Virgin Islands love story” you go to the online fund raising site called Kickstarter… Kickstarter raises funds for causes or projects by crowd-sourcing money. You post a video. You set a goal. You ask people to support your project. If enough people sign on to hit the goal, you get all the money, and the supporters get special goodies like T-shirts, photos of the cast, tickets to the premiere. If you chip in $1,000 you get a signed DVD of the movie.  Chip in $2,500 and you get in the movie credits. Right now Ed LaBorde and his crew have 51 days to raise $20,000. How much have they got so far? Right now 34 backers have pledged a total of $1400 toward a $20,000 goal. They plan to use the money to take the film crew to St. Croix in January to finish shooting the movie. You can see a teaser of the move on kickstarter.
