COLUMN – Encourage our youth instead!

Compared with the experience of my generation, it’s got to be really tough growing up in Barbados today. That’s not to suggest youth was a bed of roses. Far from it! We too had our share of challenges and distractions, but they certainly were not on the scale or of the type which children and […]

COLUMN – Honourable music mother

As part of Barbados TODAY’s team covering the FAS Entertainment’s Reggae Festival, I had the pleasure of focusing on major women entertainers Marcia Griffiths and Queen Ifrica. The two acts did not disappoint with their respective hour-long-plus hit-packed sets. This week, we get a glimpse of Marcia Griffiths; and next week we meet Queen Ifrica.  Phenomenal […]

COLUMN – Info vs rumour

There is way too much censorship going on in Barbados –– whether real or threatened. The Press being ordered off public property, and being charged with burglary, and God knows what else. It’s starting to remind me of the Gestapo in that TV show ’Allo ’Allo. Possibly because of advertising revenues and a failure to […]

COLUMN – Unsung heroes for soldiers

Out of sheer idleness the other day, I was googling my father’s name, and the first hit I got was the First World War (1914 to 1918). I never knew my Dad. I was not yet four when he drowned at Cattlewash in the 1940s, his body never recovered. But I knew he had volunteered […]

COLUMN – Riri goes deep with American Oxygen

Rihanna simply cannot be pigeonholed. She has permeated the charts with reggae, ballads and dance hits. Many have publicly asked what could possibly be next for one of the world’s bestselling and intriguing female recording artists of all time? Her sonic, visual and lyrical response was unanticipated –– but certainly profound. Rihanna got deep; very […]

COLUMN – To more people-based councils!

We must always be on our guard to resist the counterproductive urge to throw out the proverbial baby with the bath water! And a good case in point is the system of Government-established Constituency Councils. At present, there are many strident calls for the jettisoning of this Democratic Labour Party (DLP) programme, and these calls […]

COLUMN – What hero will each of us be?

As we pause to celebrate National Heroes’ Day, let us spare a thought also for the unsung heroes in our lives. National Heroes’ Day in Barbados was first celebrated on April 28, 1998, the centenary of the birth of Sir Grantley Adams. Ten persons were named as National Heroes, each for his/her own outstanding accomplishments […]

COLUMN – Neesha on high note in SVG

Barbadian Christian recording artist Neesha Woodz is now in St Vincent and the Grenadines to perform at the last two big days of that country’s 13th Annual Gospelfest, which opened on April 12 and climaxes on Sunday with a National Gospel Showcase, featuring song, drama and dance. Neesha will rub shoulders with international gospel singing […]

COLUMN – Fine century by cool Kraigg

Belief is a big word in the West Indies dressing room nowadays. And it is working to some extent in the three-Test series against England. As was the case in the opening Test at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua when they battled to a draw, Denesh Ramdin’s team again find themselves needing to […]
