Splendid send-off for The Queen

Jamaicans are known for putting on a great funeral and will appreciate the unforgettable spectacle that was the funeral service for Queen Elizabeth II on Monday in London. The event was choreographed to a 'T', befitting the greatness of the longest-serving monarch. I would be surprised if some Jamaicans weren't behind the organising of that splendid send-off.

Sick and tired of the crime

As Jamaicans, we deserve a break from the constant crime; it just keeps getting worse by the day. The rape of that Oracabessa High School female student demonstrates that nowhere is a safe zone. It would be so nice to have a week where there is no crime on the news.

Wishing Briana Williams well; good job, Ato Bolden

I read Briana Williams' decision to train in Jamaica with Michael Frater's Titan club as a sign of confidence in the ability of local coaches. Briana is one of my favourite speedsters. Congratulations to her former coach, Ato Bolden, who did a great job with her and has the wisdom to see that she needs to take it up another level.
