STATEMENT FROM THE NEW NATIONAL PARTY ON THE PASSING OF SIR JOHN WATTS, KCMG

St. George -- The Political Leader, Dr. Keith Mitchell and other members of the New National Party are saddened to learn of the passing of Sir John Augustus Watts, KCMG yesterday, 11th May 2015.

Sir John was a founding member of the New National Party and a tour de force who left a lasting impression -- not only on the political landscape of Grenada, but in the many other fields he served so well – including dentistry, Rotary Club activities and tourism to name but a few. He served his beloved country with distinction, strength of character and integrity, whether as a practicing doctor, Party Chairman, President of the Senate, founding member of the Grenada Rotary Club, or founding member of the Grenada Hotel and Tourism Association.

THE DECLINE AND DEATH OF AGRICULTURAL STATIONS - A CASE FOR POLICY RETHINK

Nowadays, if you sleep in most parts of Grenada, you are not likely to be awakened in the early morning by a cock crowing. Almost everyone eats imported chicken which is cheaper than that produced by local chicken farmers. Fresh milk from locally reared animals is no longer a regular part of the family meal. Children are generally unaware that, in times past, poor households were able to make their own butter. Few remember sour milk which we now recognise as an indigenous form of yogurt.

In Carriacou, during the Regatta festivals, islanders queued to purchase roast corn from vendors who come to Carriacou in boats from mainland Grenada and St Vincent. At Maroon festivals, the 'coocoo' is made from imported corn meal instead of locally ground corn; pigeon peas from local gardens are replaced by those grown in North America; gospo juice is replaced by the chubby drinks imported from Trinidad. Carbonated sweetened water in plastic bottles is offered for sale at the tuck shop in schools, or is given to children through the school feeding programme; while fruits fall to the ground and are left to rot.

THE UNTOLD STORY

This is 'The Untold Story', a new series and the only one of its kind in Grenada. On this program we take a look at young Grenadians and the various issues affecting their lives. Young men and women who've struggled, made mistakes, and would normally be considered 'failures'. However their stories don't end at their mistakes. There is still hope! This is their story, and a tribute to Junior Jackson, who passed away on the day after he completed this production.
