In the April 12, 1967 edition of the Caymanian Weekly, a precursor of the Cayman Compass, East End correspondent Charles Dixon wrote:

“Mr. Andrew (Elue) McLaughlin left on the 4th to work for Windjammer Cruises Inc. He will work on the Yankee clipper.

“Mr. Wilbert Jackson joined the M.V. Chemical Trader as chief cook. The ship sailed on the 6th.

“Mr. Rudolph McLaughlin left on the 4th after a short stay with his parents.

“Messrs. Varion Pearson, Calvin Connor, Chester Dixon, Pancho Forbes, Delford Solomon and Rollin Gourzong left on the 10th to work for Imperial Oils Ltd.”

In the same issue, North Side news included:

“Mr. Warren Witherell, an ex-international U.S. water-ski champion, came for a holiday and stayed at the Seaview Hotel. Soon after arrival, he found that an old friend of his, Bruce Parker, was the owner of Rum Point Club and so he took a trip to North Side and spent three days at the Club.

“Mr. Parker told the Caymanian he first met Warren at a water ski meet in Lake George in the early 1950s and they have known each other ever since. Mr. Witherell was one of the best of his day and a specialist in the slalom, and for three or four years he won just about everything there was to win in that particular event.

“Mr. Witherell is at present teaching English at the Northward School, Lake Placid, New York, where he also coaches in athletics and trains the snow ski team.

“Having found friends here, no doubt, Mr. and Mrs. Witherell will one day return to visit us again and we look forward to welcoming them.”
