Distinguishing blue from green iguanas

Distinguishing blue from green iguanas

| 05/11/2018
Is it possible for you to post an article with pictures showing the differences between a Cayman blue and the invasive green iguanas? I am hoping that when the cullers were vetted they were shown differences and how to quickly/easily spot which is which. I would love to see good photos of them side [...]

Why is shipping part of duty calculation?

Why is shipping part of duty calculation?

| 01/11/2018
I have been trying to find out why I keep getting charged customs duty on the shipping and insurance costs for personal goods I’m bringing into Cayman via a freight forwarder company. I’ve looked at the Customs Law and Customs Tariffs Law and cannot see anything about this. Is it even legal for [...]

Golden Spoons Review: Taikun

| 26/10/2018
(CNS Foodie): Tucked away in a quiet corner, just beyond the splendidly decorated foyer of The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, is an unassuming set of wooden sliding doors, which remain locked until 6pm each day. Once opened, this portal transitions patrons from the bright, cheerful environment of the a [...]

Drivers need to turn off their high beams

Drivers need to turn off their high beams

| 24/10/2018
What are the laws regarding the use of high beam lights in vehicles? I’m constantly blinded by at least 35% of vehicles driving around with high beam lights for no real reason. Maybe you can ask RCIPS as well if this is not enforceable or should I just have a spotlight to beam back into […] [...]

Buses should not stop in roundabouts

Buses should not stop in roundabouts

| 22/10/2018
What are the rules in regard to where school buses can stop? I have seen a school bus stop on the roundabout by Hurley’s (on the inside lane) to allow children to disembark. It appears incredibly dangerous to me to expect all traffic entering the roundabout to stop. [...]

Golden Spoons Review: Taco Cantina

| 19/10/2018
(CNS Foodie): After a day spent in East End enjoying a break and a change of pace, my partner and I decided a fitting way to end our little “adventure” was to try out the newest spot in the district, Taco Cantina. Turning into what may very well be the smallest parking lot in the […] [...]

Golden Spoons Review: Full of Beans Café

| 12/10/2018
(CNS Foodie): I found myself running errands in “town” this week and had a few minutes to meet up with a friend for an early lunch. Busy as we were, we decided the place needed to be quick and easy to get to, so we decided on Full of Beans Café. Strolling in around 11:30am […] [...]

Distraught over neighbour’s barking dogs

Distraught over neighbour’s barking dogs

| 12/10/2018
I have had to listen to the excessive barking of my neighbour’s dogs for years now. I am not exaggerating when I say these dogs bark all day every day and all night every night and I have honestly come to the point where I cannot tolerate this any longer. I do not look forward […] [...]

Golden Spoons Review: Mizu Asian Bistro and Bar

Golden Spoons Review: Mizu Asian Bistro and Bar

| 05/10/2018
(CNS Foodie): Asian food is some of the most satisfying food to eat. The sauces, textures and use of fresh ingredients are enough to make my mouth water at the thought of the perfect combination. I’m happy to say that I’ve found a few dishes at Mizu which confirm those feelings. Although the res [...]

Insurance companies take away drug choices

Insurance companies take away drug choices

| 28/09/2018
How can a doctor prescribe a medication to treat a chronic illness and an insurer then decide they know better than the doctor and choose not to cover it? What is even more infuriating is the Big Pharma alternative is three times more expensive than cannabis oil and has so many side effects yet they [...]

Here is my dilemma: I am Caymanian. I have a good application packet that includes my resume, my immigration status, my police clearance, cover letter…everything the different ads seem to require. I have applied for at least 100 jobs in the last four months, and despite having everything that is [...]
