Tributes have been paid to the Manx woman who died from Sporadic CJD.

This week’s Manx Independent has the story.

Inside, the paper looks at how the £8m of taxpayers’ money is being spent on regeneration.

We also report on the row about plans to update Laxey’s MER station and have a response from the government department that’s in charge of it.

Remaining in Laxey, the Independent hears from the chairman of the Glen Mills about his views about government support for the food industry.

After Alfred Cannan criticised the government for ‘winging it’ we report the Chief Minister’s response.

Meanwhile, it has been a bumper year for the Isle of Man College as a record number of students sign up. In part, it’s believed they have been attracted because of the issue of tuition fees.

The paper also reveals why the second furnace at the incinerator (or officially ‘Energy from Waste plant’) has been taken off-line.

Our Island Life section reports on the Isle of Man Film Festival and has two pages of coverage of the Vintage Fair held at Douglas Market.

The main story on the back page is a preview of this weekend’s End to End cycling race.
