Working together: RCIPS and you

This newspaper has been preaching over the past three months that the only way we, as a country, can combat crime is to work with the RCIPS as a united team. This unification has to be  on equal terms but the biggest and hardest problem is trust. The majority of the general public do not […]

Speeding and drinking – disaster in the making

With the sudden spate of road accidents, one a horrific tragedy resulting in the death of a pregnant woman, one wonders why it keeps happening? It would appear that both speeding and drinking was the cause of this one. Undue care and attention is also a contributing factor along with irresponsible flaunting of the rules […]

More colour! More pages! Web changes!

I am very proud to announce that from yesterday, our newspaper went from 28 pages to 32 pages and it’s permanent! From now on only eight pages will be in black and white. We are now publishing iNews Cayman with 24 pages in full colour. We are the only print newspaper to boast this. We […]

Slanting iNews editorials

Slanting a news story to your own personal bias is not a new trend. Michael Moore, the infamous USA filmmaker, author and liberal political commentator, in a presentation I was at some years ago in Vegas boasts about it. The very thing Moore purports to stand for, printing or showing the truth, he actually advocated […]

Where Were You?

Alan Jackson, one of America’s top country music artists wrote a song entitled “Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)?” in November 2001. It was written in the wake of the September 11th suicide attacks by al-Qaeda on the United States. Do you remember exactly what you were doing on that Tuesday morning when […]

With the announcement recently that Grand Cayman’s landfill will re-locate near to Breakers, Bodden Town it has brought a loud NIMBY reaction from the District’s residents. NIMBY stands for ‘Not In My Backyard’ and this was understandably the feeling from the meeting on Thu (12) night held at Bodden Town Civic Centre. The residents are […]

Generally appearances are generally everything

There is a general appearance to the general public that generally the Central Planning Authority (CPA) will generally be on the side of the big developer no matter how much they (the public) protest or object to the project that is before the CPA for consideration. You can object to the Cabinet and object to […]

Unrest, youth and smart phones

The pictures and reports coming from England over the past few days are disturbing to say the least. That the unrest is coming mainly from the youth, however, is not surprising. Whilst one can label the latest violence on the streets of London that has spread to other parts of England, as the work of […]

Death of America

From the first day the USA was founded to the days since Bill Clinton left office was, for me, the last time America was in touch with reality. The USA was not founded by politicians, it was founded by leaders. Leaders that were born and did not have to be educated to lead the country. […]

Electioneering

One of our reporters, Kevin Creary, had a one on one interview with the premier, Hon. McKeeva Bush last Saturday (6) following his appearance at a Jamaican Independence Day Celebration at Reflections on Godfrey Nixon Way. In this interview, the premier claimed the granting of Caymanian status to qualified Jamaicans and other suitable applicants caused […]
