He’d written a commentary on the visa situation in Africa on the BBC website and had acknowledged my post on this blog with this comment: What can I […]

Well, the radio journalism class ran with the story on noise pollution. Most significant, the students interviewed the Ashanti Regional Director of the E.P.A. here in Kumasi.

Today’s breakfast was great. Not just because of the great food, but also because yours truly was asked,”We need an idea for a story.” Ya see we have two radio journalists who are here holding a two-week workshop for radio presenters from all over the country.

You got it fellow Rotarian Kwame when you commented on my previous post regarding the tragic, preventable death of our late Rotarian colleague Kwadwo Sarpong.
