More girl power at Commonwealth, World Under-20

Having made us super proud at the World Championships in Oregon, our Jamaican women continue to shine at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham and the World Athletics Under-20 Championships in Cali, Colombia. I can't believe the speed of Tina Clayton who looks like she is going to be the next Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce or Elaine Thompson-Herah. Although the way things looking, she'll not have it all her way, with Brianna Williams, Brianna Lyston and Serena Cole, among others, right up there. Not to mention her sister Tia Clayton. What an assembly line of women sprinters.

Hot! Hot! Hot!

When the Ministry of Health has to put out a release on the heat it tells you that things bad. I mentioned it a couple weeks back and urged my sisters to look out for their aged parents who are more vulnerable to dehydration. Like it or not, climate change is real.

Police move on Donna-Lee Donaldson case

I am encouraged to see that the police have reported progress in the case of missing social influencer Donna-Lee Donaldson. In my last column I warned that as one of their own is implicated in the case, it was important that they got moving on it. They have now charged the cop, saying her blood was allegedly found in his apartment. Hoping that justice will prevail at the end.

An honest politician at last?

Did Security Minister Horace Chang say he disagrees with his prime minister who said in opposition that people could sleep with their windows and doors open if his party won the elections?
