    PEES AND QQ,S This is a time of the year that all Persons residing inthe Cayman Islands with a business need to be on their Pees and Qq,s.   For many years now, this is a time that I have seen many increase of robberies and so on.  Business people, restrurants, bars and any other business, Please Please be on the alert at all times.  Continue to watch those persons who visit your business place and spend all day drinking one beer or talking to your staff.  Come in and order one french fry and a coke.  Watch them.

    Security guards need to payclose attention to persons leaving restaurants who are in positions of being robbed.  If I get robbed leaving a restaurant I will think twice before going back there.  Be careful who you employ, because many robberies which cannot be solved, has inside assistance.  You have much to know.  Immigration need to be very careful about visitors this time of year.  Some young teen age children come to the island on vacation and do nothing all day beside steal from peoples home.  Those who sees it and feels it knows it.  Bye
