Police name tourist in fatal Jet Ski crash

This problem arose in Europe a few years ago - a minor cannot hold insurance;-

I'm talking generally - this incident is still being investigated...

But lets take a hypothetical case where someone under 16 years old caused a serious injury to another rider requiring them to be airlifted to Miami and rack up a 500,000 medical bill - Who's liable?

There have also been problems with swimmers and divers being run over. While working in Europe I had to put a dive boat on a collision course with a Jetski (only a few feet from impact, but the boat would have fared better than the divers) - He was heading straight for the the divers surface marker bouys.
When the marine police talked to him - he thought the bouys would be good for a slalom, had no idea the divers were surfacing directly below, nor did he realize that my 5 blasts on the horn meant danger - thought I was just annoyed he was going fast...


The singer Kirsty MacColl, famous for the ''Fairytale of New York'' with ''The Pogues'', was killed diving in Mexico by a Jetski, there was a Significant impact on tourism!

Tests examine dump's impact on North Sound

On the second paragraph it states the UNLINED dump site. A unlined dump site will sooner or later leech into the ground water and surrounding area like north sound. I wish the people of Grand Cayman ALL THE BEST OF LUCK but the monster is already lose.

Caledonian: Shortfalls to creditors outlined

Gabriel, I'm trying to figure out what your point is. I'm just going to assume you didn't read the article, because it clearly states the liquidators expect a total shortfall of $27 million before liquidation costs. Even if liquidation costs are $10 million, then their calculation is more advantageous than yours. And you say people need to do the math? Maybe you need to slow down and read.

Premier: Electric bills drop 27% since Sept.

Why do the premier has to take credit for every little thing that government should do for the people of the Islands, and saying that you should see a 27% drop in your electric bill , and suggested how to lower the cost. I think that people should do what he suggested, and if you don't see the 27% drop then you will know what his government did for you and what you should tell him.

Prison officer suspended after hidden camera found in office

We now understand another officer has been put on required leave and why is this suddenly confidential as to who the officers are? Is it the officer herself whose office the video machine was found? We need to know who these officers are and the public deserves to know. Compass do your job and lets find out?

Cost of Brac flights ''commercially sensitive''

The two Brac representatives can cover this up all they want, granted taxpayer in Grand Cayman cannot get to them, but don?t worry your colleagues down here will suffer. Since they allow you wanton waste as your leader says ?You just might get what you want? retirement. Shame on my PPM party, this is not what we voted for.

This raises the obvious question - is there any lower age limit when renting these high powered jet skis?. It is unclear from the report if the boy was in fact riding alone, but this appears to be the case.

Historically Cayman Airways has lost tens of millions of dollars a year and still operated jets to the Brac for largely political reasons. I can't think of any other airline in the world that operates jets on a route of only 90 miles. The lesser island routes must be a major component of the airline's annual losses but information on the subsidies for these routes has never been released. Little wonder that the Speaker cuts off any further discussion on this problem.

They need to update their latest slogan to "You've got the power - most of the time".

If they are determining the impact on the surrounding environment I suggest they need to take a photo of our magnificent mountain from any one of our hundreds of visiting cruiseships.
