Food for life

  “The herbs are for the healing of the nations.” This statement found in three books of the Holy Bible is the premise on which renowned herbalist and naturalist Dr Sebi bases his radical approach to health. Speaking to hundreds of Barbadians who packed the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre last night, the man who gained [...]

Linton was among ‘derby’ stars

  George Linton went to his grave on Wednesday not only as one of the most outstanding local club cricketers but also with a unique record over the last 35 years in the famous derby which features Empire and Spartan. As promised a couple weeks ago when I paid tribute to the former successful Spartan [...]

Prostate cancer, though still dreaded, is not as feared, and, according to the executive director and founder of Cancer Support Services, Jan Lynton, “men are stepping up to the plate and paying more attention to [...]

  It was with great sadness that while battling with my own grief of losing my dear beloved wife Dianne to illness just over three weeks ago, I was informed early yesterday morning of the passing of George Linton, the former Spartan First division captain and Barbados leg-spinning all-rounder, who gave his all to cricket [...]

Burdened middle class

  As Government continues to grapple with our current economic position and implements its chosen policies and programmes to bring about economic recovery in the future, there has been much ado about our domestic tax policy over the past few weeks, including further “advice” from the International Monetary Fund as to the way we should [...]

Water is No. 1

  By now Grand Kadooment revellers would have selected their band of choice, fitted their costumes and pumped themselves up to jump and wine on the big day now just 72 hours away. Gearing up for the massive display of culture and colour can be very intense, and the thousands who hit the streets from morning [...]
