the late opening of downtown stores up to 6 p.m. and of others in the Corporate Area are announced by Minister of Labour L.G. Newland. Operators of stores wishing to take advantage of the regulations are required to make a formal application to allow for the operation of an overlapping twoshift system to accommodate the new opening hours. In downtown Kingston, the shift will work from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. In the other areas of the Corporate Area, the shifts will run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. 1993:Neville Veteran jockey
Anderson notches the 500th winner of his career at Caymanas Park when the 3-4 favourite Sweet Desire wins the straight five Allowance feature for the Grooms Association trophy in a driving finish. Unlike leading all-time jockey Winston Griffiths, who has been stranded on 999 winners since the Heroes Day meeting, Anderson wastes no time in attaining the personal milestone. He thus joins a select band of jockeys to have ridden 500 winners at Caymanas Park. 1993:and Camperdown High
Excelsior score double victories as the ISSA Colgate-sponsored netball competition continues at Leila Robinson Court. Camperdown’s junior team outplays Kingston Technical 18-9 while their senior team gets past their opponents 2924.
