Letter: With same-sex marriage ruling, Cayman became a fairer society

To those that oppose this decision as a matter of principle rather than with hate, I say this: denying two people the ability to love one another, to commit to each other and to support each other throughout life, in good and in bad times, to have that love respected and protected by the country in which you were born and raised, is the cruellest of all evils.

Letter: Preserving Barkers

Once one part of the area is developed, then plans will be submitted for further development and Barkers will end up like Seven Mile Beach, with miles of hotels, restaurants and shops.
