Dear Sir, I don’t/won’t join in the forum and I apologise that I won’t be checking for follow up comments or letters due to the unrealistic, silly, side issues and unrelated biblical quotes that some sprout off with, they are just ridiculous.
Dear Editor, Re: Bananas distribution I say the commercial farmers given priority and the small holder farmers be given a gradual development programme to get them up to speed.
Re: Unasa heads Samoa First I have one request for the new Samoan First party to include some of these agendas in your Manifesto and that is to dismantle the N.G.O’s under the watchful eye of the U.N. that are changing the landscape of our political system and our culture.
Re: Minister responds to banana distribution claims Minister, you’re not fairly distributing the bananas. So the big guns will export 1st but are they willing to share this market with their smaller counterparts, who are now behind and trying to catch up?
Dear Editor, Well madam Wendy, on second thoughts towards your ‘unbelieving views’, reminds me ‘The Parable of the Weeds Among the Wheat’ our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ spoke of on one incident as recorded by Mathew’s Gospel; 13:24-30, with its main message was to ‘be patience and maintain preaching on repentance’.
Dear Editor, Re: M.O.H and N.H.S. Merger The Commission of Inquiry report on the N.H.S./M.O.H. merger and Nurses grievances makes for some depressing reading.
Dear Editor, Re: Nurses Association questions Police charges What in the world just happened here? One baby died and they went ahead and injected the second child? This is insane.
Dear Editor, I write with regards to your editorial “Parking meters a necessary headache.” I would say Sir, that parking meters should have been happening many years ago to curb the bludgers’ silly thought though, that parking free in downtown Apia CBD is a right rather a privilege of generosity.
Dear Editor, Re: Nurse faces charges Sounds like a scapegoat for others. The government needs to take responsibility for the lack of resources, employee development and proper safety procedures/audit to prevent these unfortunate events.
Re: Salelologa men jailed The devil is now laughing at the result of his work during your time of weakness while “you” child of God suffers the consequences of his action and temptation.
Re: Govt. loans Okay, so are you all going to nitpick all the loans Samoa government have so far? Then the question is going to ask. Why all of you are complaining when the government and P.M. are working hard to bring in investors to make some profits to help out pay down and off those loans?
Re: Govt. loans Who cares! If the government owes millions or trillions, at least the general public can see where their tax money is being spent. The focus is on the total government spending.
Dear Editor, I’ve noticed over the years that you get the same old names popping up in the Letters to the Editor: Joe Hollywood, Wendy Wonder, someone called the Mad Man or some such thing, Orlando, P.S. Jefferies and someone who just keeps quoting psalms, etc., etc.
Dear Editor I enjoyed the first column from Reverend Tielu about the shortcomings of the present government and the way it conducts its business. The special mention of the Police Commissioner’s appointment is rather pleasing for it confirms my viewpoint about this issue.
Dear Editor, Well Wendy in Wonder, I categorized you with our friend Orlando on the grounds that you are both residing in Samoa and I imagine it is via Marriage, where you are very welcome to our Country.
Dear Editor Since the Attorney General’s Office announcement that they are appealing the decision against Alatasi Tupou, it has taken me that long to assimilate the crime, and the adverse complexity of the appeal for the future of this son of Samoa who has been making a name for Samoa on the rugby fields around the world.
On Thursday last week, a major development in the deaths of two babies who died after they were administered the M.M.R. vaccine at Safotu, Savai’i, emerged. After a few weeks of several investigations by different officials – including health experts from outside of Samoa - the Police and the Attorney General’s Office took the first step in what we anticipate will be one of many to be taken in the pursuit for justice over the deaths.
“Parking meters is the way of the future. That’s clearly the message from the Government after several parking meters were installed in different parts of the Apia Towship this week. What do you think about paying to park in Samoa? Our reporter, Adel Fruean, asked members of the public in today’s Street Talk and this is what they said:
Think a minute…As the saying goes: “A leopard can’t change its spots.” This, of course, is true of leopards. But is it true of people? Can people change? Are we humans just creatures of habit? Or can we control our thinking, behavior and habits?
In 2012 Samoa, celebrated its 50th anniversary of Independence. The Government of Australia announced that it would co-fund with Samoa a significant infrastructure project to reconstruct the Maota Fono on its original site here at Mulinu’u.
Those parking meters A lot has been said about the Government’s move to install parking meters - good and bad.
The spears flew towards the youth on the hill, whistling as they cut through the air. Grinning, Queen Medb’s general drew his sword, eager to take back to his Queen the head of this warrior whom they called the Hound of Ulster. He had no doubt his spears would find their mark.
