Obeah on rise

1. Obeah has made a huge comeback in Jamaica this year. Interesting stories are being told about students enlisting help to pass exams and gunmen trying to evade capture. Well, we have legislators who are interested in legitimising its practice, so soon and very soon, the patrons won't need to hide.

Ugly duckling

2. It's the story of the glamorous one and her ugly duckling sister. They hate to be in the same room together because one is always in the starring role, while the other tends to wilt in the background. There is an interesting story to be told about that household.

Doing own thing

3. Some are puzzled that the once astute financial genius could wreak such havoc on a business. Well, he spent so many days lounging on the beach and so few in office that everyone was doing his own thing, which nearly caused a collapse.

Staggering numbers

4. The numbers are staggering. We refer to those who are making the trek up north after retirement. After decades of service, many have decided that their sunset years are better spent in a place where there is great health care and better security. Some businesses are now accepting Jamaican dollars, which makes life that much sweeter.
