FIGURES OF SPEECH: Sting 2013 scores the JTB endorsement + A.J. Nicholson responds to Trini deportation saga

CATCHING THE BUZZ: "Sting is such an iconic Jamaican event and, in that regard, we are very excited to be on board this year, and I think the guys are doing something very special," says Jason Hall, deputy director of the Jamaica Tourist Board, which is co-sponsoring Sting this year, on the noteworthy occasion of the Boxing Day extravaganza's 30th anniversary staging, which promises memorable appearances by an exhaustive roster of dancehall's finest -- and the legendary Super Cat alongside rap star du jour 2 Chainz.

TAKING A STAND: "I believe that our personal intervention and collaboration can go a far way in bringing this issue to a speedy and successful conclusion. This is of the utmost importance, as a regional integration movement, which does and is perceived as protecting and advancing the interests of all sides, is vital to the progress of our regional enterprise." -- Jamaica's foreign affairs minister A. J. Nicholson addressing the recent deportation of 13 Jamaicans from Trinidad. >>UPDATE: According to fresh reports, Nicholson and his Trini counterpart, Winston Dookeran, are scheduled to meet in Kingston next week to discuss issues concerning free movement of Jamaicans into the twin-island republic.
