Within recent times, I have seen quite a few children more than usual.

With the awareness of parents being heightened, they are now quicker to respond to issues, than before. A number of children are into varied activities, and parents want their children to be comfortable, along with good returns (medals/ trophies and recognition), on their investment.

WHOEVER thinks calypso is a dying art form need only look in the direction of emerging stars like Sharissa Camejo. The 18-year-old took home her second National Junior Calypso Monarch title on Monday following a convincing performance of her nation-building song “Everything We Can”. She won her first Junior Calypso Monarch title at the age of 14.

Terri Lyons roared twice on Thursday.

The combative entertainer first bared tooth and nail to dominate the competition with her potent offerings “Obeah” and “Meghan My Dear” at the National Calypso Monarch final, at the Queen’s Park Savannah, Port of Spain.
