My power of attorney document in Jamaica needs a notarial certificate .. HELP?
I sent a notarised power of attorney (POA) document to Jamaica, and my friend says it was rejected because I did'nt send a notarial certificate. I went to the bank and the notary public says her certificate is held at the corporate office, and there is no way she can send it to Jamaica. She recommended using her number to verify if she was still a valid notary. I called my friend and she says the Registration office is insisting on the notary certificate.

Bad manners; Man, that stuff will kill you - Florida Stand Your Ground Law
I grew up in Jamaica in a time when children were to be seen and not heard, to speak when spoken to, to say please and thank you, to cover their mouths when coughing or sneezing, and to have good manners when speaking to their elders or anyone else.

You are wrong on so many counts. Where to start?...If you had done even the smallest of research, or even dipped slightly into that bag you call a memory, you wouldn't be foolish enough to make such a misguided statement. Jamaica's history is replete with major achievements beyond our track stars… and in many fields outside of athletic achievements. Just check. I know you are not a journalist and don't need to check facts, but having some facts would help you quite a bit.

Jamaica Bobsled to the World... Remember back in the early 90s when the movie Cool Runnings came out and the whole world saw Jamaica as the eternally optimistic, never-give-up underdog? That movie was made about the 4-man Jamaican bobsled team who first made it to the Winter Olympics in Calgary, 1988. Since then, the team has qualified for every Winter Olympics… until 2006. They were missing from the Winter Olympics stage again in 2010, but this year, our little bobsled team is making a gargantuan impact. Not only have they qualified for the 2014 Winter Olympics being held in Sochi, Russia, but upon the confirmation that they could earn a spot in the 2-man bobsled race, crowdfunding and grassroots supporters netted the team over US$120K in a matter of only two days.
