How can anyone disagree, unless you're just an objectionable, miserable person who hates animals. The Humane Society and others on island, need our help. Stop disagreeing and cough up some dough.

Dart has more invested into the success if the Cayman Islands product and it seems that he is more willing and able to do what it takes to make it top notch. I am glad he's here investing and in a very big way contributing to what will be an excellent future for Cayman. I am sure that had he not been doing this a lot of the other developers working on projects wouldn't have the confidence to invest here.

'Illegal' motorbikes trouble residents

I read once that motorbikes could easily be much quieter. However manufacturers deliberately leave off as their clients like the loud roar they make.

But it is not just motorbikes that cause a hazard and noise nuisance.
Jet-skis are no better.

We live on a canal which is clearly posted No Wake and 5 MPH.
This does not stop some jet-ski operators and commercial boats racing along at 4-5 times the legal limit.

Not only disturbing to all the neighbors but the wake created is damaging to the sea wall.
Complaints to the police are ignored. Even with video evidence clearly showing the offenders.

A friend who works in the Accident and Emergency Department of a hospital has a chilling phrase they use to describe people who ride fast on motorbikes - 'organ donors'!

And while Residents complain to the Police, the Tourists complain to their friends and 'social network'.

If the law requires the use of a Helicopter and a myriad of ground based forces to arrest an illegal rider, is there any wonder that it is too expensive to be a priority.

It seems today that the Criminals have more rights than the Police service and frivolous lawsuits arise from individuals who's wrists were 'moderately chaffed' and were traumatized as a result of having to wear Handcuffs.

If a criminal can prevent Police pursuit simply by driving recklessly then something is significantly wrong - indeed that is an incentive for them to try.

Rather than criticize the police for chasing them, the courts need to recognize the implication of 50,000 members of the public who the police are duty bound to protect from a minority who repeatedly and blatantly flout the law, then when finally caught, receive a 2 week suspended sentence and a naive instruction to 'don't do it again'.

I know it pestering to hear those motor bikes screaming up and down on a Sunday morning. But better that, than these kids doing drugs. Kids need an outlet and excitement otherwise their idle hands get up to no good.

We need a recreational park in Cayman for these types of motor activities. Barkers is a good place but still has beach goers there which would like some peace and quiet. Maybe go by the north side part of barkers. However it would be nice to see a motrocross/4 wheeling park somewhere in the bush of east end. Plenty of land back there and no one around.

A bit late, but stop importing these things, just like the pocket bikes there is no legal place to ride these things. Next, gas stations, they all get gas, so make it illegal to sell to obviously unregistered bikes. Finally parents, where do you think your kid got their bike from, and where do you think they ride it? Do the right thing and be a parent and responsible citizen, call the damn police.

This is the kind of fund raising the Humane Society should partake in. The facility is abhorrent, and as human beings we continue to ignore the care unwanted animals must have. Maybe we're not human. Please folks reach into your pockets for our four legged friends. Even donate dog food and supplies, and or your time.

Dart is the best real estate developer to land on our shores. Everything is so perfect and of good class.
It is just such joy to take a walk around Camana Bay and enjoy the well kept grounds, the beautiful pants, many of Cayman species, and the welcoming atmosphere of Island breeze, good food, and ice-cream. Visit the theaters, and you have just stepped off into avatar oblivion.
I support the new expansion to Camana Bay and just cannot wait to see it unveiled.

TI owners aim to prevent hotel sale

I stayed at this hotel two years ago. It was a nice value for the dollar, but did need a lot of upgrades to be able to say that it was a great place to stay. The room was nice...kind-of, but the entry to it, the other room surroundings and condition needed help. It is positioned nicely on the strip of Seven Mile Beach. I found it on Hotwire.com which made the value good, but the recent listings on Hotwire are way too high for what you're getting. I'd stay somewhere else for the the dollar cost.

Scotiabank to close local branch

Could they have considered opening one in Bodden Town District where they would be servicing three other districts?. Many elderly residents from the Eastern districts have account with Scotia Bank and sometimes does not want to take the trip all the way to George Town. Oh, but I see,.......they have no encouragement from our representatives.
