Miss Jamaica World 2005 - Terri-Karell Griffith

Over the years the Miss Jamaica World competition has been a source of controversy. One of the greatest contentions is that no matter how beautiful and/or intelligent the black girls are the ‘brownings’ are always chosen.
Well this year 2005, a natural black Jamaican won. Terri-Karell Griffith. I must admit I had not been following the competition before however I was most impressed with Miss Griffith at the coronation show on Saturday, September 10 at the Jamaica Pegasus.
Terri-Karell is beautiful, intelligent, confident, talented and she exudes personality. She was chosen for the Gleaner’s most aware award. During the questions and answer segment of the competition she was confident and fluent. A trained dancer Terri also won the sectional prize for talent. To top it off, she was voted most congenial by 13 of the 15 contestants.
A student of the Central University in Las Villas, Cuba the 23 year old is studying veterinary medicine. She speaks French and Spanish fluently.
It’s a given, you can never please all the people all the time. However, I do believe many Jamaicans who saw the coronation show or who have been following the competition will agree that the right girl won.
Nuff Love.

Sister Mary Margaret

SISTER MARGARET MARY, WHO WORKS FOR A LOCAL HOME HEALTH AGENCY WAS OUT MAKING HER ROUNDS WHEN SHE RAN OUT OF GAS.

AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT A GAS STATION WAS JUST A BLOCK AWAY.

SHE WALKED TO THE STATION TO BORROW A CAN OF GAS TO START & THEN DRIVE TO THE STATION FOR A FILL UP.

THE ATTENDANT REGRETFULLY TOLD HER THE ONLY GAS CAN HE OWNED HAD BEEN LOANED OUT BUT IF SHE WOULD WAIT, IT WAS SURE TO BE BACK SHORTLY.

SINCE THE NUN ! WAS ON THE WAY TO SEE A PATIENT SHE DECIDED NOT TO WAIT & SHE WALKED BACK TO THE CAR. AFTER LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO FILL WITH GAS, SHE SPOTTED A BEDPAN SHE WAS TAKING TO THE PATIENT.

ALWAYS RESOURCEFUL, SHE CARRIED IT TO THE STATION & FILLED IT WITH GASOLINE, & CARRIED IT TO HER CAR.

AS SHE WAS POURING THE GAS INTO THE TANK, TWO MEN WERE WATCHING FROM ACROSS THE STREET. ONE OF THEM TURNED TO THE OTHER & SAID, "IF IT STARTS, I'M TURNING CATHOLIC".
