Dear Editor, Re: P.M. calls on Church Minister to deliver the message Should church ministers heed the PM’s suggestion and preach to their congregations about the benefits of healthy living, this would bring significant benefits to villages and Samoa generally.
Dear Editor, Re: Let’s not panic Tuala has made some valid points and I applaud him for speaking his mind. This is not in any way to discredit him nor judge his way of thinking but to redirect the conversation around “Child Vendors.”
Re: Minister talks about the future You should’ve asked a question about the Hawaiki cable project which runs from N.Z. and Australia through Fiji, American Samoa to Hawaii and then onwards to the US mainland.
Re: Do thy eyes deceive thee? He is just a failure that H.R.P.P spokesman. There is a failed economy under his leadership which is creating poverty and social problems in modern Samoa.
Re: Expectations soar with Tietjens at helm We expect too much with our high expectations to only think that winning all the time is a good thing. Of course it’s good to win the game especially when it comes to our beloved Manu Samoa team but the problem we have is that we don’t know how to cope when the Manu loses a game.
Dear Editor, Re: A profound diagnosis of what’s happening in Samoa The Samoan people overwhelmingly voted in this H.R.P.P government by an absolute landslide at the 2016 general election.
Dear Editor, Re: How we can fix this problem In response to this letter, I’d like to share with your readers an article by Augusto Lopez-Claros titled “Nine Reasons why Corruption is a Destroyer of Human Prosperity.”
Re: Tuilaepa and Bainimarama Ok let’s see. Compare: Polynesian Airline under Tuilaepa; bankrupt Air Pacific becomes Fiji Airways and increases fleet including 747s under Bainimarama.
Dear Editor, Thank you Ropeti Ale for your insights and profound diagnosis of what is happening to our tagata Samoa in the wake of becoming overwhelmed and marginalized to the wayside as our government ruling party becomes overly consumed with political power, influence, and wealth.
Dear Editor, Re: A future President who is a liar with the “viciousness of an 8-year old”? I’m amazed of how short sighted your commentary about Trump being the liar that he is Mr. Editor in Chief.
Dear Editor, Re: Lawyer accuses Police of abuse of power This article clearly shows why Unasa was and is a terrible lawyer. She obviously has no understanding of the law, and likes to spout off incorrect information to get members of the public outraged.
Dear Editor, I have a lot of respect for the views expressed by MP Lautafi Purcell’s family members on social media forums but after reading MP Lautafi’s comments about street vendors, he’s slowly becoming an idiot.
Re: Ministry investigates vendors Ua leva ga fai e kagaka ga mea...the old Mackenzie Wholesale at Fugalei, I always see kids buying goods at the wholesale prices and they resell it with their own mark-up price.
Dear Editor, Re: The man of the moment The Member of Parliament for Urban West, Faumuina Wayne Fong, appears to me to be a new MP who wants to make a change for the betterment of Samoa.
Dear Editor, Re: Neglect comes at a cost Interesting reading this editorial. I refer to the bit which reads: “We have often said that the root of the growing social ills in society today is the result of family values being lost.”
Here’s the truth. Driving on the roads in some of the villages on the outskirts of Apia today is not just unpleasant, it’s a nightmare. With some road workers doing a joke of job in filling in the potholes only to be washed away by the next heavy downpour, it’s disheartening to follow the headaches and heartaches caused by those pothole-ridden roads to poor members of the public.
At the beginning of the year, Sir Gordon Tietjens took over the Manu Samoa Sevens.
Think a minute…A successful writer named Norman Cousins became terminally ill. He was told he had only six months to live and that his chance of surviving was only 1 in 500. He felt that his past lifestyle of worry, fear and anger had partly caused his disease, so he wondered: “If sickness can be caused by negative, bad thinking and emotions, can good health be caused by positive ones?”
So the entry point for English for aspiring teachers at N.U.S.has gone UP to 50% for 2017? What?
The young man sat upon the bed of stone, his gaze drinking in the beauty of the maiden who slept at his side. From the auburn curls that fell over her pillow to the slender hands that lay uncurled upon her chest, Brynhild was exquisite.
