Intro

How Yu Du (How are you doing)? Thanks again for joining me in this issue my friend.

The last two weeks can easily be recorded as one of the most memorable in our history, no joke. That's primarily because of the issues that surrounded the extradition affair of Mr. Christopher Coke.

But Jamaica is Jamaica and we'll pass that. My only hope is that we learn some lasting lessons.

Outside of that, we have some really exciting news and information, so please stay with me for the next few minutes OK? READY?

...let's get rolling!

Did you Know?

-------------------

  • ...that the town of Black River in St. Elizabeth was the first in Jamaica to have electricity?

    This was supplied by the Leyden brothers in 1893. Power was generated from a plant which had a huge furnace and boiler.

    Logwood, which was a major export of the parish, was used to generate steam from the engine which provided the power.

  • ...that Kingston formally became the capital of Jamaica in 1872?

    Prior to this, Sante Jago De La Vega, now known as Spanish Town in St. Catherine was the capital of Jamaica - which earlier took the capital status from Seville in St. Ann.

Well, now you know!

  1. Jamaica Touched My Heart

    Unless you are deliberately staying away from the news - international or local, you should by now know that we are going through some trying times!

    It was therefore very heartening to receive some reassurance from Deanna. Deanna, like us Jamaicans is concerned with some of the developments, but has never lost the love and admiration for our beloved country.

    Here's Deanna's encouraging words to us - and the emotive comments it generated.

    Keep the love flowing, send me YOUR own comments here.


  2. My-Island-Jamaica.com is in the Media - Again!

    ..this time, we were referenced in the National Schools Debating competition! Thank you Shermaine for bringing it to our attention.
