  • Girl survives father's butcher knife, cries for help

    Chopped, stabbed and left to die by her father, the fate of an 18-year-old Jamaican woman now hangs in the balance and her dreams of becoming a doctor may only be realised if Good Samaritans help her lead a normal life.

    Shanna-Kay Campbell, whose father almost butchered her to death three years ago, needs a further $5 million to do a life-enhancing surgery in the United States.

    "I would be able to move on with my life and start going back to school," Campbell told THE STAR.

    "I really want to go to school to become a social worker or doctor because as a social worker I think I could relate to children who have been through what I have been through, and as a doctor I would understand what it is like to be sick and need help."

    Some $7 million is needed to do the surgery, $2 million of which have already been raised.

    Campbell now wears a metal tracheotomy tube, which runs from a hole in her neck and down her trachea (windpipe). It allows her to eat, speak and breathe. Without the tube, the hole in her neck would heal and seal off her windpipe, thus preventing her from eating, breathing or speaking.


    serving time

    The young woman's woes started while she was in eighth grade at the Clonmel Junior High School when she was attacked by her father. She has not been able to attend school since. She stays home these days and tutors herself.

    Campbell still recalls with vivid detail, the horrid incident that took place at her home in Clonmel, St Mary.

    "I was in my yard and my father came up behind me with a machete and drew me into the bushes where he stabbed me multiple times and slashed my throat," she recalled, noting that he had recently returned from prison after serving time for murder.

    She said her father proceeded to do other unthinkable things to her, things she found too unbearable to repeat.

    "Then the police came and they shot him on the spot, and took me to the hospital where I spent three months in the intensive care unit," she explained.

    Now, Campbell has to live with these scars a reminder and she says the tube in her neck area is a source of great discomfort and embarrassment for her.

    "There is a constant pain and I easily catch infections so it smells sometimes. I cough up secretion and sometimes I don't know when it's coming, so sometimes it just flies out," she said.


    breathe properly

    Her only hope at leading a normal life rests in the hands of a team of doctors in Rochester, New York, who have devised a procedure which will heal the hole in Campbell's throat while still allowing her to eat, speak and breathe properly.

    "Sometimes I feel like giving up, but recently, I see like good things are going to happen for me," Campbell said.

    In addition to the hole in her throat, the massive scars on her torso are another set of dreadful physical reminders of the incident. She said her keloid skin makes the scars particularly unsightly, and she would love to have plastic surgery done to remove them.

    But for now, fixing the hole in her throat and removing the tube, is the more pressing issue.

    "I can't forget what has happened, but not seeing the tube everyday will help me to move on with my life," she said.

    Persons who wish to assist Shanna-Kay Campbell can contact her guardian, Sharon Danvers at 353-4901 or make donations to the Old Harbour Scotia Bank branch, account number 408-629, in Sharon Campbell Danvers' name.

  • Curvy Diva' responds to breast implant rumours

    Popular radio and television personality Yanique ‘Curvy Diva’ Barrett, has addressed rumours that she has had breast enhancement surgery.

    In an official statement to the media, Barrett said, “When someone is considered a sex symbol there is always going to be rumours and questions about what is real or fake. People should refrain from making snap judgements though when they aren’t aware of the facts. Not everyone with a nice body has done surgery, so that should never be the assumption.”

    “I’ve always projected a positive self-image and will continue to inspire young girls to love themselves and always be confident regardless of their body type,” added Barrett.

    Barrett confessed that she doesn’t “mind being the centre of attention “and encouraged fans to keep the positive and negative comments coming

    Barrett became the subject of plastic surgery rumours online after she posted photos on her Instagram page, which revealed visibly larger bust.

    She also added fuel to the fire when she posted a video on her Instagram page with stocks of 100 dollar bills at the Brit Jam party flaunting her body.

  • British police reportedly tell London club owner to ban Jamaican Dancehall Music

    The owner of a nightclub in London says he was told by police to stop playing Jamaican dancehall music.

    Roy Seda, the owner of Dice Bar in Croydon, told international media that Jamaican dancehall music (referred to as "bashment music") was considered “unacceptable” by the police and he has been forced to have his DJ’s sign contracts that state that they will not play the genre.

    The police, however, say this is not the case. According to an official press release, the cops say they have not “requested a ban on any type of music”. They also added in their release that, “the licensee volunteered not to host bashment music events in order to tackle the issues in his venue and make it safer.”

    When Jamaicans at home and in the Diaspora caught wind of the story, many took to social media to express their outrage, calling the police’s actions and language discriminatory.

    “That’s outright discrimination," said one Facebook user.

    Another added, “After all Jamaicans have contributed to British society, this is how they treat us and then they want us to forget slavery.”

  • Boy said abandoned by friends while drowning

    WHAT should have been an unforgettable experience for 12-year-old Nicholas Maxwell ended in tragedy after he went to a river in Tredegar Park, St Catherine, on Sunday morning with his friends


    The body of the Jonathan Grant High School first form student was found yesterday about 9:00 am by his relatives, who had been searching for him from the previous day.

    The lad, who had never known the joy of swimming in a river, had, along with three of his friends, left his home in the Waterloo community in the parish and had travelled about a mile-and-a-half on foot to get to what that the residents call ‘Badmind River’.



    “A the first time him a go river; him jus bad lucky,” one of his cousins was overheard saying.


    According to Nicholas’s aunt, Allison Johnson, who was among a crowd of people at the river yesterday, her nephew drowned shortly after he and his friends arrived there. She claimed that his friends, instead of returning to the community with news of the tragedy, lied about Nicholas’s death and pretended that they had not seen him.

    Johnson said that she and Nicholas’s parents had left him at home with his older sister and cousins and that she was informed that he left about 9:00 am with his friends who returned about an hour later.

    She said that some time after, the boy’s sister noticed his absence and started asking for him. But his friends, with whom he had left the home, denied knowing his whereabouts.

    “The little youth dem never waan come talk, dem say dem never go river wid him, they even came to the home calling him after dem come back from the river,” Johnson said.

    “It was after his parents came home in the evening about 7:00 and were searching for him, and a lady hold on to one of the boys who had gone with him to the river, he said he was there, and they saw when he drowned and they ran,” Johnson alleged.

    A young man, who identified himself only as Collin, said he was among a group of friends and relatives who found the body, which they fished from the river using a piece of bamboo.

    Collin said they had visited the scene on Sunday night and had found his clothes, but because of the darkness they could not find his body. As a result, they called off the search until early yesterday morning.

    The grieving parents were spotted at the scene looking on in despair, but were too distraught to speak.

    However, Johnson said that her nephew will be greatly missed by his family.

    “Nicholas is so kind and gentle-spirited and he is easy to get along with,” she said, her use of the present tense suggesting that she had not accepted the fact that he was dead.

    Meanwhile, a detective from the Spanish Town Police Station who was at the scene, said that the boy’s death is being investigated as a suspected case of drowning.
