Come January next year, all those who once imported plastic items such as drinking straws, ‘scandal’ bags less than 2ft square, and styrofoam meal containers will have to sneak these in through Customs and run the risk of huge fines of millions of dollars or prison time. Serious business!
Last year when Tremayne Brown jumped in a gully that runs along Collie Smith Drive in Trench Town to rescue 11-year old Renaldo Reynolds from raging flood waters, he was not thinking about a reward.
The funeral for Pro. Bernard Headley will be live streamed at http://www.sligochurch.org/media
for anyone who would love to watch the ceremony.
A message from a deportee. Before you stay abroad and beg and suffer, come home and set up shop.. You can make it anywhere, if you are not lazy. Jamaica is up and running. I’m asking all my fans whenever you visit Black River Jamaica, please find this man and lend him your kind support. He has the Best Jerk Pork in Jamaica…. Out of many one people. #Jamaicaupandrunning. Jamaican Carlos
With a warm smile he greets you
and a firm hand shake
Even though he’s just meeting you
for the first time
He listens to everyone
and wasn’t bias in his judgements
He was a man of truth and valor
and a hard worker
He brings a touch of class
to everyone and everything he works on
He held his head high
because he was very proud
We lost a great person
a father to everyone
A friend in times of need
and a true motivator
On behalf of NODM,
which is one of his success and great achievement
We mourns as we have lost someone we can
and always lean on
May your soul rest in eternal peace!

The Department of Literatures in English, University of the West Indies (UWI), Mona, will organise film workshops facilitated by 2017-2018 Filmmaker-in-Residence Michelle Serieux.
The two all-day workshops on May 26 and May 27 will be under the theme ‘The Short of It: Development Process for Short Films, Original and Adapted’
A Government guide given to Jamaican deportees advises them to fake a “local accent” to help them stay safe.
“Try to be Jamaican,” it says. “Use local accents and dialects (overseas accents can attract unwanted attention).”
The advice emerged after the Government admitted some people who had lived in the UK for decades could have been deported “in error”.
