Intro

-------------------------
Hey!

How are you again my friend?

I almost said 'Thank Goodness September has ended!' because of the personal ill-lucks, but I shouldn't.

Despite some of the challenges we faced - both to me individually and we - as a country, it was still a month to be grrrreatly appreciative.

Well we celebrated the birth of our second daughter, my darling baby Aliana.

I have that, plus some of the very latest develpments in the country, including the Prime Minister's shock resignation!

(Stay with me, I'll explain the 'Sweet, Bitter, Sweet' in a minute OK?)

The Latest From Jamaica!

----------------------------------------------
  1. Prime Minister Golding Is Stepping Down

    On Sunday, our prime minister stunned the nation by announcing that he is stepping down in November.

    As expected, this has fueled heated discussions, especially since he has not yet provided a reason.

    Many are hailing this as a positive step for the country though -and an opportunity to get 'new blood' in the system.

    The prime minister will be making an address to the nation on Sunday though. Stay tuned.


  2. Tourism Ministry Launches HIV/AIDS Awareness Campaign

    "The Ministry of Tourism, through the Tourism Product Development Company (TPDCo), has launched an extensive public awareness HIV/AIDS campaign in an effort to reduce risky sexual behaviour within the sector." Read More on the JIS' website.
