Melissa Geness is running the risk of having her Montego Bay 'visa' revoked by looking so fabulous each time she visits the Second City. The Rotary Club of Ocho Rios president was spotted at the Montego Bay Indian Benevolent Association's cocktail reception for the visiting delegation of the Queen's Baton Relay.

It was all about bacchanal on the beach for carnival revellers at the weekend and the Indian community out west is still basking in the afterglow of the Queen's baton.


Getting ready for action

1 The political activists say they are gearing up for a few battles in the very near future. This is against the background of anticipated changes to certain parliamentary seats, which they say will result in a few by-elections being called.

Where's the driver?

2 Some people are asking why the elevated one has not been provided with a chauffeur. Thefact is she is not very skilful around the wheel and there are the dents to prove it.Now, someone needs to step in and save this situation.

Justice delayed

3 The recent exposé about cases backing up in the court system comes as no surprise. For example, there are simple motor-vehicle cases which have not been decided after 10 years.There are scores of litigants whose cases have been sitting in the judge's chambers for up to four years.

All in public!

4 The people in the audience did not find it cute when the two women started to fondle each other. Many eyebrows shot up at such display of feminine affection, but this did not stop the show from going on.
