Bye, Bye 2017... Hello 2018
Last year, this time, many persons were busy making resolutions for the New Year, 2017. With the sun about to set on the year, one of the bloodiest in the country's history, THE WEEKEND STAR ventured into downtown Kingston to ask people how they feel about the old year and the extent to which they are looking forward to 2018.
