TALK OF THE TOWN: Prof. Errol Miller “will be missed” at ECJ + Kern Spencer hits the comeback trail + Ezroy Millwood, valiant to the last

THE FIGHTER: Police in St. Andrew say no foul play is suspected in the shocking death of Ezroy Millwood, former head of the National Transport Cooperative Society (NTCS), whose lifeless body was recently discovered at his Red Hills home and whose legendary multi-million-dollar battle with the Jamaican government over the bus company, many suspect, took a toll on his health and might have contributed to his death. “The pressure got to him. It really took a toll on him because he was under doctor’s orders,” notes a colleague, who describes Millwood as a generous man who fought valiantly for what he believed in. Says attorney Patrick Bailey, “He was a hero who fought hard, and we are gong to continue the fight in his honour.” 

FAMILY MAN: Determined to spend more quality time with his wife and daughter, Prof. Errol Miller is ending his 12-year tenure as Chairman of the Electoral Commission of Jamaica (ECJ). Hs colleagues and admirers are sad to see him exit the position he has served so faithfully. “It’s going to be a great loss to the commission. He has gone beyond the call of duty to get the job done,” says Director of Elections, Orrett Fisher. CAFFE’s Nancy Anderson concurs. “He was a strong leader,” she concedes, “but also one who saw the need to delegate. He will be missed.” 

HIS SECOND ACT: For his post-politics comeback, Kern Spencer has stepped into the sphere of reality television, as a founding member of the production outfit, Super K Studios. Among their upcoming home-bred programmes is Celebz, an inside look at the lives of Jamaican entertainers, sports figures and politicians (among others), offering insights that “the public isn’t normally privy to.” The pilot episode will feature dancehall hotshot Tommy Lee Sparta, who talks about everything from demonic imagery to his beef with Bounty Killer. The show will air on the Best of Jamaica cable channel (BOJ TV) during a time-slot to be announced.
