    Oh Dear is right. It states that the propane tank was thrown after officers arrived on the scene. This story could have been really ugly if one of those officers was killed or badly injured in the explosion.

    Holy Krap… 50 years old… and I thought I was IRON CLAD!!

    It's gotta be either the Hollywood guys capitalizing on the WB up-n-coming Actors and filming a scene for a high-'impact' action movie without a permit…. or our first case of terrorism.

    Well Well – what's next to happen:  West BayersI beg you  try stop immitating "HELL" in West Bay

    Many years ago  West Bayers invited HELL to be a part of their district by allowing  a particular place to be called "HELL"   The Bible tells us that our words is life and they can also be death. Try get rid of hell, and see if that will make  a difference.   Not that West Bayers are bad people -No!!!.Some of my best friends are West Bayers, but I strongly believe  that you should get rid of HELL. Don't entertain    the words among you all any  longer

    There are so many abused women here in Cayman without almost no protection besede what they can do for themselves. Some women are treated less than dogs. Our church is now going to be having meetings on abused women and men , but I fail to believe that there are any abused men unless its those convenient marriages, and that should be what thy get.
