Have your say

Tributes have been paid to a 49-year-old who died on the pitch on Saturday.

The Isle of Man Examiner reports the sad news of Andrew Cadwallader’s death on the front page this week.

The paper’s front page also includes news about a warrant being issued for the arrest of a man who offered herbal tea as a cure for cancer and Aids.

Inside, we devote page 3 to the latest from the trial of the Attorney General. He told the jury that he deeply regretted an ‘error of judgement’.

The Examiner this week also reveals that Heritage Homes, a part of Dandara, has made a legal bid to quash a planning condition that prevents it from developing the landmark Castletown Golf Links Hotel.

As the news from Flybe seems to get worse every week, we find out why the airline is unlikely to be able do restore links with London in a deal similar to one worked out for the Cornish airport of Newquay.

Meanwhile, we report why the government has ruled out a Guernsey-style state-owned airline.

There is good news on the economic front. The government says the island’s economy is due to grow by 3 to 4 per cent.

Of course, that growth is always patchy. While parts of the economy might be booming, others aren’t. If you’re a retailer you know the picture in your sector is far from rosy. That is underlined in another report, which looks at the impact of the internet on high street sales.

This week’s Examiner includes two picture specials: One on the storm and one on the Onchan torchlight parade.

The business section includes news of a direct flight for the TT from Italy and, after news that CVI Technical Optics shuts with the loss of 35 jobs, we report on a venture from Dr Helmut Kessler, who is taking on five or six people from his old company in his new firm, Manx Precision Optics.

The main story on the back page is the Isle of Man’s win over West Yorkshire in the FA Inter-League Cup. We also report Keith Gerrard’s medal in the European Cross-Country Championships in Belgrade.

The island’s favourite newspaper is in the shops now.
