At a worship service Saturday, Jamaican Prime Minister Bruce Golding reminded Jamaican Americans about the importance of their cultural heritage and stressed the need for strong family values.
''We have to go back to some basics . . . where children were taught manners,'' Golding said in his 15-minute talk with congregants at Maranatha Seventh-Day Adventist Church.
The Miami Gardens church, with a large Jamaican congregation, was the second of three stops on Golding's first official visit with South Florida's burgeoning Jamaican-American community since he was elected in September. [More]
