“We needed some new pairs of eyes with a new energy. He has a wealth of experience and lots of contacts, both here and overseas, as well as some visionary ideas – including screening the festival in 3D. This will be the first time it will be done. It’s going to be amazing. Also we’re looking at doing a North American tour.” – Robert Russell announcing Downsound Records’ Joe Bogdanovich as the new Chairman of Summerfest Productions, which puts on the annual Reggae Sumfest concert series

“Community policing is the way to go. These young people that we have now are fast forming their own culture and if we, as adults, as police managers, don’t influence the attitude that they have towards the formulation of this culture, it is going to be to our detriment.” – Senior Superintendent of Police Steve McGregor emphasizing the importance of law enforcement at the community level in the fight against crime

“Personally, I don’t really want to continue for years and years because it’s getting hard. I have to sacrifice more and more. It takes up so much of your time. I’m never going to come out and joke or be a joke in a season. I believe in winning. I hate to lose. I will never come out and say it is a farewell tour. I will want to compete at my best, go to the championships and win again. – World’s Fastest Man and Time 100 honoree Usain Bolt addressing retirement rumours in a recent CMC interview

“As I grew older and started digging deeper, trying to find out more about my father and started listening to his music, I started to accept and acknowledge how much of a great man Garnett Silk was and what he means to people. It started to inspire even me in the greatest way possible.” – Rising star Garnett Silk Jr (whose upcoming album is called Let Reuben Live) on the influence of his legendary father

“Few artists have influenced the sound and trajectory of popular music more distinctly or touched quite so many people with their talent. ‘A strong spirit transcends rules,’ Prince once said – and nobody’s spirit was stronger, bolder or more creative.” – President of the United States Barack Obama paying tribute to music icon Prince Rogers Nelson, who died at age 57 earlier this week
