The challenges of 2020 continues – with the underlying Covid-19 restrictions affecting business and normal life and now politics and protest – as calls for police reform, the return to normal, the restrictions of State of Emergency and pending elections converge.
Add to that an active hurricane season, travel restrictions and closed schools and it all becomes a maelstrom of confusion, frustration, uncertainty and anxiety. But let cooler heads prevail as we attempt to recover from this period of disquiet.
There are some good things going on – the residents of Mountain View/Piat are clearing drains and garbage as we go deeper into the hurricane season. Calabash TV was on location and filed this report.

Also a Coalition comprising the music fraternity has hosted a fundraising concert for out of work musicians. The initiative was driven by music producer Irvin “Ace” Loctar. The show aired on Calabash TV. There is still time to contribute to the initiative. View the show here.
