Quotes

"It has always been like this, but because of the meticulous fare-collection system and allocation, people are getting to understand it more. The law speaks to students in uniforms" said the JUTC boss
"I had entered the CB Pan Chicken Championship two times before, and I wasn't even interested in entering again from about four years ago. But SDC (Social Development Commission) called and asked if I was interested, and I said, 'Sure'" Levers explained
Peter Bunting, the party's general secretary at the time, said in Parliament last Tuesday that Clarke, who was buried yesterday, had declared that "if it took every last dollar he had he was going to finance the by-election himself"
Speaking on the innovative On Tour concept, Cecil Smith, group brand manager for rums at J Wray & Nephew Limited, said, "Jamaicans and tourists alike are always craving for more live music. Our nation is one of the greatest producers of music worldwide, yet there is a void of live performances in a safe and secure environment for music lovers to enjoy regularly. On Tour will allow for Jamaican musicians to actually tour the island with their latest music over a four-day period, monthly, and perform for their fans. It's a great opportunity for Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum and OneOne Nation Event Entertainment Limited to showcase that Jamaica's entertainment industry can facilitate multiple-date artiste performances consecutively, as done with tours outside of the island in mostly North America, Europe and Asia."
