jamaicaobserver The Jamaica Observer Table Talk Food Awards, now 18, is all grown up. The conversation has expanded to facilitate the cross-pollination of culinary talent and the ambitious expansion of the Jamaican template further afield in the Cayman Islands and Trinidad and Tobago. Like a proud parent, the formal gardens and east lawns of the historic Devon House venue witnessed the growth and influence of an awards vehicle that has become the pedestal for the best in food, wine, service, and decor. #FoodAwards2016

jamaicaobserver It was simply a matter of Jamaica’s Reggae Boyz returning to their core values which helped them to the final of the CONCACAF Gold Cup last summer, aided and abetted by decent renditions here in the Copa America earlier in 2015 .

That is the reason for Jamaica’s surprise 2-1 victory against Chile in their friendly international inside Estadio Sausalito here on Friday night, claimed Head Coach Winfried Schaefer.

jamaicaobserver National 400m champion Javon ‘Donkey Man’ Francis is a man on a mission. His Akan coach Michael Clarke thinks he is right where he is supposed to be at this time of the season, and the Racers Grand Prix will show exactly where he is at just four weeks before Jamaica’s National Trials. “I think he is right on target and I am waiting to see what will happen at the Racers Grand Prix,” Clarke told the Jamaica Observer yesterday.

jamaicaobserver The police have been once again pushed to step up their message of caution to road users following yesterday’s crash of a public passenger bus in St Ann which left five people dead. The incident happened about 6:50 am.

The five — Odain Latty a security guard; Karene Johnson, principal of the Orange Hill Basic School in Brown’s Town; Charles-Anthony Jones; Kevin Minto; and a fifth passenger who was still unidentified up until press time last night — died after the Chinese-made 2007 Golden Dragon bus collided with a Rav 4 on the Llandovery main road. The bus was heading to Brown’s Town after picking up passesngers in Ocho Rios.

jamaicaobserver It appeared that somehow Winfried Schaefer and his Reggae Boyz were never made aware of the script as they completely disrupted what should have been a grand sendoff party for the 2015 Copa America champions, Chile, by registering a feisty 2-1 victory inside Estadio Sausalito here tonight.
