detained Indicom is investigating from crime to road fatalities just two of the
issues that dominated discussions and the recent municipal cooperation meeting
in San James mayor Montego Bay Homer Davis once stakeholders to work to
reduce the murder rate and the number of road fatalities in the parish the major
concern for the parish of Montego Bay is crime May of Montego Bay Houma Davis
expressed concern about the increase in the number of murders the parish within
the past two years between 2018 and 2019 murders in st. James increased by 50% he
appealed to residents to get involved in working with the stakeholders to prevent
a similar increase in 2020 there’s no stranger
that is coming in to copy these crimes they are known the persons and
communities there are several ways in which information can be passed on and I
would encourage citizens to continue to work with our security forces as foreign
discipline motorists mr. Davis says consideration must be taken to prevent
road fatalities I know this year we have had quite a few fatal accidents
especially along the elegant corridor I would advise motorist who traverse
that bit of Iowa to observe the speed limit because in most instances the
report is the accident is caused from speeding there’s also a concern about
improper garbage disposal in the parish when you see the sharp shunting along
the roadway it’s a shame to see the amount of plastic bottles styrofoam
boxes another garbage that is strewn along the roadway along these corridors
let us be more mindful of our environment he’s encouraging public
passenger vehicles to have a bag for the passengers to dispose their garbage
instead of happening thrown through the window mr. Davis added that effort must
be made to clean areas and destroy our breeding sites for mosquitoes to prevent
an increase of dengue cases in the parish

so news now in sports a month after head coach of the reggae girls program
humanzees walked away assistant coach Lauren Donaldson has also called it
quits after tendering his resignation on the weekend Lauren Donaldson has been a
part of the rigorous program since 2014 after being invited by recognize
ambassador Cedella Marley in his letter of resignation Donaldson cited his
decision on the questionable integrity and lack of professionalism within the
leadership of the jmf but jmf general secretary Dalton Wynne says Donaldson’s
remarks are farthest from the mark I’d love for you to ask him what it doesn’t
mean by that lack of professionalism lack of integrity hey does he have any
evidence to provide to say that there is integrity problem in the Geonosis
resignation was also triggered by built-up frustration with the jmf
which also has to do with a lack of a salary payment mr. Donnelly’s used to
run a club that he owns he makes all the decision that is not what and how the
jmf operate or decision processes is it something that is a process and so we
just can’t say yes or no things and we can act the way that he wants a stuff as
quickly as he wants a stuff because we have to ensure that all the T’s are
crossed and all the I’s are dotted before we can make a decision any
question that is asked the former national player also accused the jmf of
blatantly disregarding the sacrifices of the coaching staff under the reggae
girls something that goes back to the girls final World Cup qualifying game in
Texas it was our intention to Afghan to those games myself and the president
unfortunately I had a governance workshop in in Zurich which I had to

  1. Jamaican police really need to start being more detailed and transparent with these "sting operations" because that report honestly just sounds extremely sketchy, not saying it isn't the true story but the lack of precise information makes it just sound untrustworthy

  7. I can’t blame the coach at all the reggae girls be underrated over the years, they Perform way better than the reggae boys, for a coach to call out the management to for their lack of professionalism shows, only thing I’m hearing is excuses and this prove this isn’t the first management don’t sent no real Representation for the reggae girls.

  8. Thats good news for the people of jamaica

  9. The people of Apart should be glad that the company is open up back, because the time the company was closed. It was liked a ghost town, they should be glad that the company is open again. That company is operating in that areas almost 50years now, those people are just some big idlers.I remember when that plant was building up, I useto go there to play cricket.
    Those people should be very glad that the company is open again, in any country where there is mining.
    It is going to come with some risks, I liked near one of the plant,even when the train in running. You can hear it in my house, I useto worked there for years, although I am not working there anymore. My brothers, nephews,cousins also still working there, I cannot fight against the company. Because most of the things I have in life is there i worked, I know the values of the the Bauxite companies in Jamaica. At one time it was Jamaica leading foreign exchange earners, Bauxite companies in Jamaica from in the 1950s, and shipped its away load to the United States in 1958.I was a little boy at the time, until I grew up,and got a job there.
    The Bauxite companies is the best thing ever to come to Jamaica, where most people benifitted from it in some ways or the other.
