The beauty and the voluptuousness of Montego Bay might make you feel that this is a place where you can get away from it all. The setting is unimaginably lush, with soft, white beaches, brilliant blue water and nearby forested hills. The Caribbean sun in January offered up 80-degree days that were softened at night by a soothing sea breeze. The food was delicious and the people lively -- and, for an area so dependent upon tourism, delightfully down-to-earth.I found most Jamaicans to be approachable and helpful, and pleased -- practically delighted -- if you showed the slightest interest in them and their country.

Ocean City's planning and zoning commission is scheduled to meet tonight about the possibility of banning short-term rental properties in some residential neighborhoods. The meeting was prompted by complaints from year-round residents in Mallard Island, an upscale community of single-family homes on the bay. The idea has also generated concern that a change will hurt investment by other property owners, who rely on rental income to subsidize maintenance and other costs. The commission is looking at the possibility of changing the rules for property owners in single-family neighborhoods considered R-1, including Mallard Island, Caine Woods, Montego Bay and Little Salisbury.

Flights from Baltimore to Cancun will be offered under the Southwest Airlines banner starting in August, as the airline continues to rebrand routes formerly flown under AirTran Airways. The airline recently announced similar changes on flights from BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport to destinations such as Aruba, Montego Bay and Nassau. Southwest acquired AirTran in May 2011. Flights from BWI to Cancun will come under Southwest starting Aug. 10, the company said. Flights to Aruba, Montego Bay and Nassau begin July 1. Officials at BWI hope Southwest - the airport's largest carrier - will expand its portfolio of international flights out of the airport in coming years, and Southwest officials have said they are reviewing options to do so. krector@baltsun.com twitter.com/rectorsun

Kevin Fowlin had finished his shift at a Caribbean bakery in Northwest Baltimore and decided to walk to a nearby check-cashing outlet to cash his paycheck. He planned to visit his niece, who lived nearby, relatives said, but he never made it to her house. Fowlin was approached by two men who made him put his hands in the air, and then shot him before rifling through his pockets, police and relatives said. He died later that night at Sinai Hospital. "Right now, I cannot concentrate because of the situation," said the victim's father, Ralston Fowlin, in a telephone interview yesterday.

Please don't call them trailers: The polite term is manufactured homes or, at the very least, mobile homes. In Ocean City, they often feature screened sun porches, verdant gardens and adjacent boat slips. Some are simple, some are gorgeous. And no, the people who live in them don't know why tornadoes always seem to target the darn things.But as summertime fills up this resort town and rental prices soar, residents of the resort's mobile home communities know ++ they have carved their own relatively inexpensive niche.

Within a mile of Montego Bay's International Airport, we've already passed a goat grazing on a soccer field and fishermen hawking freshly caught lobsters and stringers of fish by the side of the road. On the four-hour drive to Port Antonio, a sleepy resort town on the eastern end of Jamaica, you can tell in an instant this is a world away. Along a twisty, narrow, inconsistently signed road scattershot with potholes, we'll pass ramshackle fishing villages by sparkling blue Caribbean waters, chaotic towns with pedestrians and bikers darting into traffic, banana groves, cricket fields, lushly forested hills, schoolchildren in tidy uniforms, dreadlocked rascals carrying machetes, aging Anglican churches and roadside shacks selling fruits we've never heard of. We'll contend with speedy Jamaican drivers riding the bumper of our rental car, honking incessantly and making sport of passing with just inches to spare.
