The Editor Speaks: My glasses are tinted

Am I breaking some obscure law? My eye glasses are tinted. 171 tickets were given out for having too dark a tint on their automobile’s windscreen. The RCIPS have proudly blazed that figure along with the very serious 283 speeding tickets. Why? How many of those cars deemed to have had illegal tint had passed […]

The Editor Speaks: Mysteries

I love mysteries. They are the top of my list when reading and watching movies. I love to be surprised and I hate it when I am right after the reading and/or the movie has ended. Often now we see the unfolding of government secrets. Secrets that have remained so for years. This makes for […]

The Editor Speaks: Pigeon post and telephone landlines is the safest

We have published today two articles concerning security and malware. All, of course, involving the Internet. Add to that the story we published over the weekend, “Scamming Emails from Fake Cayman Islands Government Email Address”. This one warns: “The RCIPS wishes to alert the public of a fake phishing email scam circulating in the Cayman […]

The Editor Speaks: World Oceans Day

Last Saturday (9) the Cayman Islands celebrated HM The Queen’s Birthday. We had two special honourees, marching parades, pomp and bands. The day before, Friday 8th, passed by with barely a murmur. However, it was justifiably important enough for our Minister of Health Hon. Dwayne Seymour , to mark the day with a Message. It […]

The Editor Speaks: Loud noise

Have you noticed we are bombarded every day with noise? Loud noise! Even louder noise!! It seems every ad that comes on the radio has someone shouting at the top of his voice over the most horrible noise that’s supposed to be music. To add even more to this horror they add an echo so […]

The Editor Speaks: Butterflies

I have missed seeing butterflies over the past few years so it has been a joy to suddenly see so many white ones these last couple of months. There have been swarms of them particularly on my way to and from Bodden Town and on the East West arterial. This was highlighted on CITN/Cayman27 last […]

The Editor Speaks: Why we should be proud of our Coat of Arms

Yesterday (Mon 4), saw the beginning of the “Celebrate Cayman” 60 years celebration of the Cayman Islands Coat of Arms. Captain Owen Farrington, a Vestryman who was serving in office when the Cayman Islands was granted its own coat of arms in 1958, unveiled the new replacement warrant, which recently arrived from the United Kingdom. […]

The Editor Speaks: Education

In iNews Cayman today we have published a story where the President of the Trinidad and Tobago Unified Teachers’ Association (TTUTA), Lynsley Doodhai, has said “Asking teachers to mark School Based Assessment (SBA) projects and not pay them is modern day slavery.” Speaking at the 78th Tobago Teachers’ Get-Together held at the Tobago Nutrition and […]

The Editor Speaks: Biggest trial ever heard in the Cayman Islands gets world wide attention. Insane.

It was like a John Grisham novel after reading the summaries provided to the media and published here on iNews Cayman on May 31 2018 (http://www.ieyenews.com/wordpress/cayman-islands-hon-chief-justices-jugement-on-the-ahab-v-sicl-and-others/). It was a landmark case and followed a 10-year dispute played out in international courts between the Al Gosaibis and Maan Al Sanea over who was to blame for […]

The Editor Speaks: Firearms amnesty

Tomorrow (Fri June 1) the RCIPS is launching a firearms amnesty. It will run until the end of the month. The last RCIPS amnesty was in 2011. It was not a giant success. However, one gun off the streets is a plus that is countered by the hundreds that have appeared since then. I have […]
