The Editor Speaks: Jamaica Independency – success or failure?

On Tuesday (6) Jamaica celebrates its 51st anniversary of Independence from Great Britain.

From 1863, the Cayman Islands were officially declared and administered as a dependency of Jamaica but were […]

Governor’s farewell party

It was standing room only and barely enough space for that last Friday (2) on Government House’s front lawn.

“God is a patient father” says veteran country singer

By Colin Wilson Ed Bruce is one of my favourite singers. He has been around for a very long time. He is 73 years old now but I am ashamed to admit I only “discovered” him a few years ago when I heard a song called [“There are] Girls, Women and Ladies” being played on […]
