The Editor Speaks: Driving nightmares

With yet another serious motor accident very close to my home, Hirst Road, last night (Mon) leaving a man in critical condition with life threatening injuries, I have to ask, when will drivers slow down? What amazes me is why a lot of people think they must be in front of you at the cost […]

Our thatch palm shows the “way we coming from” By Joan E. (Watler) Wilson Life is so hectic today I wonder where the day has gone, let alone the hours. Maybe it’s because I’m getting older and time does seem to go more quickly the more we age. However, that is only part of the […]

The Editor Speaks: Courthouse MUST not be left in limbo

A new courthouse is not going to happen anytime soon. Maybe not during this administration. At the moment there is not even an interim solution to the problem that has plagued the judiciary for years – not enough room. This shocking development was announced by the Chief Justice in his speech at the Opening of […]

The Editor Speaks: A resounding Trump

Every single day since he was elected (and to a lesser but significant time before) US President Donald Trump has dominated the media. Today we publish a story from the UK’s Daily Mail that at first sight would seem Trump was involved with money laundering. Further investigation of the article shows absolutely no evidence to […]

Last night at 10:46PM we received an Information Statement from Cayman Islands Hazard Management issued “regarding a possible tsunami threat for the […]

The Editor Speaks: Why do the poor countries allow their leaders to live a life that rivals Royalty?

In an article we have published today titled “Filthy Rich” it highlights the lavish lifestyle of Africa’s longest self-serving dictators. The article states: “The former First Family of Zimbabwe – The Mugabes – deposed by the military, after the tanks rolled out on a weekend now four weeks gone, must surely rank top of this […]

The Editor Speaks: Charity may not soon begin at home

‘Charity begins at home’ is a well known cry and here in the Cayman Islands we have been lucky that charities exist. Without them our social services, already stretched, would be overwhelmed to the point of extinction. And what would have happened then? Soon we may find out. The Non-Profit Organisations Law will be coming […]

The Editor Speaks: Respect for our police

The incidents we have seen recently on television showing police officers acting like soldiers in a war zone have done little to add to the respect that they need in order for them to execute their duties. The main one being to protect all law abiding citizens. Our televisions are set the majority of time […]
