Boat captains: No safe haven from the rent

Compass keeps surprising us. What Cayman Islands are? A wonderland? A crazy land? I can't forget about so called volunteers that get paid well, travel guides that do nothing and get paid well, government officials on a indefinite leave that get fully paid and now boat owners that expect CIG to pay their operating expenses.

Agree Lloyd Mongo, long time ago. And dogs that can sniff cell phones is prison. Just watched on TV, dogs can easily do that. But what happened to the dog Cayman police once had?

Another thing is that the competition there is far fiercer than here, Huta said. Competition for the few places is an everyday thing in Europe, but it is really hard to simulate that environment here because we have such a small pool.


Not only such a small pool, Huta...

The entire culture of the professional game is completely different to the amateur game played in Cayman, at a senior level.

It is impossible to replicate a complete football culture where a player, from the juniour ages, is focusing and being focused to prepare for the competitive challenges of making a living in professional football.

That Cayman is now preparing youths that can impress professional clubs in Europe enough to be given a chance says a whole lot about the development of the youth game in Cayman.

However, as you well know, that will never transcend to the adult senior game in Cayman unless a professional structure is put in place...

And we both know, that will never happen.

So Cayman customs agents are finding cocaine in peoples shoes etc? I have never in my life seen a customs agent inspect someones shoes... if this is the case then we are looking at a nightmare of line-ups when we come back to Cayman.
They should just invest in drug sniffing dogs...

Time to declare 'Recess is over' in Cayman's schools

Mark Boland's statement is spot on. I could only add that the school administration is doing the kids a huge injustice by taken this type of behavior lightly. How does this prepare them for the real world? Today my boss looked at me wrong so I hit him in the mouth. Yea, see where that gets you. In the States, you could get away with it more by relocating but, I would think that on an Island one's actions would tend to follow them around more.

Curious these Bullet loans that were taken out by the Cayman Development Bank. Does anyone know what the money was borrowed and used for and which administration did the borrowing.

When the spine of the system comes from a jellyfish, did we expect anything else.

And these Mensa candidates, such as the CEO, the Minister and other Henson look alikes, will continue to grope around in the dark to find solutions to problems that are obvious to a blind man.

They speak fairy tale language and have absolutely no concept of what goes on in the real world.

As I previously said, this somehow gets turned on the teacher who was assaulted. He/she will be transferred to another school or they will magically disappear from the school system. Its the pattern and I speak from first hand experience and not rumor.

And then to add insult to injury, the Ministry will come out with a statement that every child deserves an education. They are right. But that will be followed by so much bovine excretion, that Mount Trashmore couldn't house it.

The Ministry will then say that the world is following their model. That makes me laugh so much its equally funny as the previous statement.

Where I come from, assault is assault regardless of where it happens. We rehabilitate criminals in prison and release them into society when they are ready do become contributors and not inhibitors to society.

Time for another Royal Commission to investigate and recommend.

And finally, I come from a place where the world does watch and model our educational system. The Ministry might want to have a look. Sorry, they are blind and just wouldn't be able to see it.

I hope the test given to the applicants for permanent residency is reviewed as it does not seem fair. Perhaps the members of the board could take the test and determine just how difficult it really is.

I am glad to see that I am not the only person who thought that the statement from the Education Minister was meaningless.

The problems with these children start in the home with irresponsible parenting; and it is only with the use of early intervention that we can even hope to have a meaningful impact on the situation. Also, we need to understand that not everyone that is capable of having a child is fit to be a parent and we need to do more to educate young people about making the right decisions.
