THE REGGAE BOYZ

 

A stunning 2-1 victory over the United States in the semi-final of the CONCACAF Gold Cup ensured that the one-time darlings of Jamaica returned to the headlines and the front pages.

 

Dr PETER PHILLIPS

 

The Ministry of Finance confirmed that the Government has reached an agreement on a deal with Venezuela to repurchase billions of dollars it owes under the PetroCaribe arrangement. Raising US$2 billion on the international capital market through the issue of two Eurobonds ensured that Phillips was one of the newsmakers of the week.

 

RAYMOND PRYCE

 

The St Elizabeth North Western Member of Parliament and deputy general secretary of the governing People's National Party (PNP) had to back-pedal after telling members of the PNP Youth Organisation that young people were used by the party in its bid to win the 2011 general election.

 

OWEN ARTHUR

 

The former Barbados prime minister slammed CARICOM states still wavering on accepting the Caribbean Court of Justice as the region's final appellate court.

 

LISA HANNA

 

Fighting for her political life, the South East St Ann Member of Parliament Lisa Hanna came out swinging, even as those who want her out staged a demonstration metres from where her annual constituency conference was being held.

 

LYNDEN BARRETT
