After reading the article, Teenage girl dodges jail in stabbing case, and seeing almost zero response from the community, it made my blood boil.

I saw your column on dealing with looting after a hurricane, and my question is: What protections are in place to prevent any price gouging?

All the trees at the roundabout in front of King’s Sports Centre and First Assembly of God are being cut down! And for what purpose, as hot as Cayman is? Auntie’s answer: While I definitely do not like to see any trees cut down, there is no need to panic. An official with the National […]

What are the rights of same-sex couples married overseas?

| 03/04/2019 | 0 Comments

Based on the recent legalisation of same-sex marriage in Cayman, I have some questions. If a same-sex couple, which includes a Caymanian, got married overseas, can the non-Caymanian spouse now apply for a Residency and Employment Rights Certificate?
