KC and Edwin Allen win Boys & Girls Champs

In a great performance, Kingston College has won the 2019 ISSA Boys Championships (Champs 2019) over second place Calabar by almost the same margin as they lost to Calabar last year while Edwin Allen won the Girls Champs 2019 by 7 points over Hydel.

Boys Champs 2019

Not quite the 32-year drought ended by winning the Manning Cup last year, KC was winning Champs for the 32nd time and first time since 2009.  KC also broke the Champs points record with 396.5 points in winning.

Girls Champs 2019

On the girls side, it was Edwin Allen Comprehensive High that continued their dominance, this time with a narrow 7 point win over the impressive Hydel school.  It was their 6th straight title. Hydel protested one of the Edwin Allen relay wins but it was called as an Edwin Allen win.

Congratulations to Edwin Allen and Kingston College and all the great performances by athletes of all the schools.Great champs or was it marred by too many false start controversies?

Talk to me nuh.
Buju Banton deh pon street again after release December 07, 2018

it is official.  Buju Banton, born Mark Anthony Myrie, has been released from prison after being arrested in December 2009 and convicted in February 2011.  It is a big deal and cell videos surfaced immediately of Buju Banton boarding the plane.

The Free Buju group here on on Yowlink seems to have been updated (the image removed already) by the group’s administrators.

Many fans and well-wishers did not expect Buju to be convicted back in February 2011 but we remember how sad it was when the news broke that he had received 10 years in a maximum security prison.

But, nevertheless, he is free and we expect the buzz to continue for days, weeks, and the next few months. Yowlink hopes to get an interview with the newly-released Reggae icon. Right now, we have to just “join the line“. Stay tuned.

Yow Yawdies, Caribbean people, Reggae music enthusiasts, and others, what do you have to say about the incarceration, the trial, and Buju in general?

Yow, talk to me nuh?

Five murdered in mass shooting in Annapolis, Maryland,USA

Five (5) journalists were brutally murdered and others injured in apparent targeted mass shooting at the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Maryland, USA. The alleged shooter was taken into custody by the police.

One of the dead had ties to South Florida.

This is total and utter madness. People who commit these and acts have to be insane or being lead by alternate or virtual reality. A sane person with compassion would not commit such terrible and senseless acts.

We pray for the families, coworkers, and friends of the victims.

Will the US politicians just talk and play politics or will they put themselves in the shoes of the loved ones of of the deceased, come up with a plan and act? Even one life saved is precious.

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? – Jeremiah 17:9

For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornication and murders. – Mark 7:21

A good man out of the good treasure of the heart brings good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings evil things. – Matthew 12:35
