CHAT ’BOUT: Tufton claps back at detractors … Vangelee Williams quits the Sunshine Girls … Nurses call for improved health-care sector

“These vicious and false attributions made under the cover of social media have caused great pain and suffering and are clearly aimed at damaging my career, as well as causing emotional distress… but I will not be deterred in doing my job to the best of my ability and in service of my country.” – Health minister Dr. Christopher Tufton responding to personal “attacks” stemming from the Jamaica Moves/ Market Me controversy

“I’ve been blessed to be able to represent my country over all these years. I am super proud of all the contributions I’ve made to the programmes I’ve been a part of… The little girl coming from the country on weekends to try and win a spot in the national programme was willing, was motivated, was full of aspirations and big dreams of representing the country at the highest level.” – Former Sunshine Girls skipper Vangelee Williams announcing her retirement from international netball

“Learn the business. Don’t get caught up in the hype. Don’t leave your royalties and publishing in other people’s hands. Take your music inna your hands and know the business. Review your files. If you don’t understand it, carry it to a lawyer.” – Khago’s wife and manager Francine Gayle imploring new and aspiring artistes to protect their intellectual property

“It is full time to truly appreciate the provision of good health care and that it is not a burden but a necessary good for the development of the economy and thus must be included at all levels in the planning process in various ministries.” – Nurses Association of Jamaica (NAJ) president Carmen Johnson delivering her message to mark the recent observance of National Nursing Week

“We, the people have successfully voiced and participated in our democracy and must continue to do so to ensure that all of us can benefit from our status as an independent nation… As we enter this ‘new normal’ environment, we must display the resilience for which we are known globally.” – Governor General Sir Patrick Allen delivering his 2020 Emancipendence message
