1. The rot has begun. One of the finest developments on the coast that caters to returnees is feeling the effects of the negatives associated with their members. There are several abandoned homes, and repossession is said to be very high as people reconsider their choices for resettlement. Action required.

2. It is really gratifying to see Jamaican products in foreign markets. For example, branded juices such as sorrel and soursop are prominently displayed in some US airports, and, of course, many supermarkets now carry Jamaican products in the "ethnic section".

3. Green card worries trapped a VIP in the US recently. The gentleman spent many hours at the airport trying to explain why he was living outside of the country. After nearly six hours, he was released with a stern warning: use it or lose it!
