The Editor speaks: Why proper accounting is essential

The days are over when committees are set up with volunteers, a treasurer from within that committee is appointed and monies from outside are paid in, without any oversight. Whilst the Pirates Week Office accounts are scrutinized by the government appointed accountants, the District Committees accounts have not come under this umbrella. Things have changed. […]

The Editor speaks: Plots

The plotting that has been going on to get rid of US President Donald Trump ever since he won the Election is not new. Neither is the suspicion that Trump himself is encouraging it since there is an election next year. He is counting on the public’s ill taste at impeachment when the supposed crime(s) […]

The Editor speaks: Motorists Monday morning n’mare

By Colin Wilson It was utter chaos this morning for motorists. A Monday morning nightmare they had to endure getting to work, especially if they were coming in from the west and travelling east. There was first an accident at Newlands and even worse second one on Shamrock Road in the vicinity of Peanuts Gas […]

The Editor speaks: You’re first – after me!

was pleased to see the Press Release from the RCIPSs we have published today. It is has, unfortunately, the somewhat boring heading “RCIPS issues traffic advisory to road users”. We have used it as a sub-heading, chnging the main heading to “Police warn drivers they MUST indicate and other ‘nuances’ to help traffic flow”. I […]

The Editor speaks: Bernie bids “bye bye”

After clinging to the tail coat of his West Bay colleague House Speaker McKeeva Bush, Bernie Bush bid “Bye, bye” to the government benches, crossed the floor and joined the back benches. It comes as no surprise as it has been obvious for some time there had been a falling out between the two Bush’s. […]

The Editor speaks: I give MLA Harris 10 out of 10 for speaking his mind openly

MLA Austin Harris, famous ex Rooster Radio Host, bravely spoke his mind in the Legislative Assembly, and lashed out at two of the leaders of the Cruise Port Referendum (CPR). He called Johann Moxam and Mario Rankin “muppets”, no doubt comparing them to the two miserable old men on the hit winning television puppet show. […]

The Editor speaks: CPR Cayman now don’t want the Referendum (AS IS!!!)

I’m sure you’ve read the Premier’s response to the Legal Opinion on the Cruise Berthing Referendum and what the Opinion concludes. We have published both under Breaking News yesterday as soon as we received it. Other local media houses have done the same. CPR Cayman engaged the local legal firm Broadhurst to seek an Opinion […]

The Editor speaks: What is truth?

I was at a Professional Men’s Breakfast meeting this morning (Sat Oct 26) and the speaker, Rev. Nicholas Sykes, chose this as his subject. I am not going to repeat it what he said, except his title, and asking us if we had ever watched the television game show, “Family Feud”? Most of us said. […]

The Editor speaks: Family offices

We have published today a Press Release from GIS titled “Single family offices asked to participate in anti-money laundering consultation”. I have to confess I hadn’t a clue what it was all about. Single family offices? I know what single families are – but how many live in offices? What has that to do with […]

The Editor speaks: Is the job fair a “foul”?

There is a saying that “all is fair in love and war”. The concept behind the phrase is that some areas of life are so important and overwhelming that you cannot blame someone for acting in their own best interest. You can wreak all the havoc you want during the pursuit of true love. The […]
