Marcia Bennett, owner of the Whispering Bamboo Cove Resort, was sworn in yesterday as Custos, or "Justice of the Peace" for the parish of St. Thomas. Coverage of the ceremony was provided by Novia McDonald-Whyte for the Jamaica Observer. We enjoyed our stay at Ms. Bennett's resort last month. Whispering Bamboo is located along the coastal highway east of Morant Bay in the community of Retreat.
