Gatoaitele Savea Sano Malifa

He who laughs first laughs last!

Has it ever occurred to you that our Prime Minister, Tuilaepa Sa’ilele Malielegaoi, is perhaps the most written about and photographed individual, whose mugshot has been appearing quite consistently, on the front pages of the Samoa Observer over the years all the way to today?

Letters to the Editor

Faafetai tele Gatoaitele Savea Sano Malifa for your editorial ‘Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s’. Matthew 22:21 that was published online on November 18, 2017.

Dear Editor Re: The issue of customary lands I think you see things as many others are starting to see them. Also according to some people there have been cases where attempts have been made they just are not publicized.

Dear Editor Re: In response to Siaosi Siomia There only needs to be the appearance that these things you bring up are happening to disqualify this person.

Where is our dignity?

When I read poetry, in my solitude, I often think of my love for my country and yours too. I think of the beauty of it, and how the essence of it all is a sweet caress on a troubled mankind’s forehead.

Between the Lines

LEARNING THE AIRLINES LINGO Heard the term “close in bookings”? Chances are, you are one of the many Samoans who fall into that category used by airlines to describe your booking when you travel.

SLOW DOWN PLEASE Those midnight rally drivers might want to be careful out there.

YOU’RE THE BEST! Admiration and thanks to the school pupils, supervised by teachers, for manning the pedestrian crossings near schools and keeping their many fellow students and drivers safe on our roads.

Think a Minute

Think a minute…In 2007 an amazing woman was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, but sadly then died at the age of 98. Her name was Irena Sendler from Warsaw, Poland. During World War II Irena worked as a plumbing and sewer specialist in the Jewish ghetto of Warsaw.
