Dear Editor, Re: Samoa is the place to be Well, I think Mata’afa Keni Lesā, you are starting to write the truth and you sure make sense when you listened to your conscious.
Dear Editor, Re: Unregistered voter convicted and fined It’s sickening. Next time stand-up together and protest for all the world to see. If you want a change to better your children and the future of the country something must be done.
Re: Peaceful Samoa the place to be You forgot to mention family violence. Spousal and child abuse and sexual violence against women and children in Samoa. These types of violence are every bit as horrendous as terrorism on a persons psyche.
Re: The government and sex workers China is a better example than Venezuela. China is actually improving a lot. They have a ways to go but they are improving. They are way better on the environment now than the US. These are social policies that help the people.
Re: Road safety begins with you and me Certainly, research will show a significant reduction in fatalities and injury with reduced speed, however this research is done where speed limits at 100kph and above.
Re: Millions lost on E.F.K.S TV Here’s my confusion. How can a church, which is a non-profit organization that depends heavily on contributions, go into business ventures and make such massive losses?
Re: Study hits out at violence Really, the church obviously isn’t working - look around Samoa, people are merely hiding behind it and everyone knows it. It’s the desperation of people stressed out by all the stupid monetary customs putting pressure on the family budget.
Re: Losses at E.F.K.S TV This is why the Samoa Observer and the media should be allowed to report on the church’s dealing. I know the church have lawyers to review any deals with a private firm, but they could’ve hire Samoa Observer or another trusted local media outlet to promote its cause.
Re: Losses with E.F.K.S TV E.F.K.S must be the only church in the country, which makes its financial reports available to the public via the General Assembly through the media coverage of the conference.
Dear Editor, Re: Future and Yazaki Here’s where you write the script. Yazaki and Tuna canneries are the past folks, the future is just around the corner. Fix your house first, before you try to put the nails on someone else.
Dear Editor, Re: Church should teach holy Science The church and its lessons are very important and useful to a Christian’s journey in life. I am very fortunate to be brought up a Christian in Samoa.
Dear Editor, Re: The cost of the Jubilee Church So which is it PS Jeffrey and Lighten Up? 1000 or 2000 capacity? Seem neither of you have any idea either. I donate my fare share to both Malua and Kanana Fou. Both campus are enormously burdensome to our people but based on our belief and our “PRIDE”, we continue to contribute.
Dear Editor, Re: What the government needs to focus on This is the sort of letter, which annoys me no end. I gather from the letter that you Mr Hartin live somewhere in the US of A and have either visited Samoa on only a handful of times or never visited but read about us on the internet.
Dear Editor, Congratulation and jubilation Samoa! There are more goodies coming towards your country and am so grateful for your best ever government lead by the Honourable Prime Minister of Samoa Fatialofa ‘Auēlua Tuila’epa Lupesoli’ai Lolofie Neioti Galumalemana ‘Ai’ono “Bird of Paradise Chief Logohu” Dr. Sa’ilele Malielegaoi.
Dear Editor, Very interesting to read about the Minister of Communications and Information Technology’s Cable vision. It’s great that Samoa will get all this internet capacity, but beyond the promise of cheaper internet for local users, we need to be realistic about the potential for all of these add on industries and opportunities.
Re: Many questions about air transport If the signs align according to the P.M.’s crystal ball of where the curvature of the crossing over of the new cycle in business is the right timing, then I wouldn’t argue with the P.M. on this notion.
Dear Editor, Re: Let’s back our Polynesian brothers Jeepers, one day I am dealing with extreme anti-government fanatics and the next I am dealing with extreme pro-government fanatics like you Bruin. I am not trying to talk down the country.
Bad habits are sure hard to break. And when it comes to the ugly issue of domestic violence, while much has been said, written and done in an effort to eradicate it completely, the truth is that we have a long, long way to go.
The growing number of alcohol-related deaths is alarming. Hardly a month goes by without several incidents where precious lives are wasted due to alcohol abuse and drinking sessions gone wrong. What can we as a country do to stop these unnecessary deaths? What is your solution? Ilia L. Likou asked in today’s Street Talk and this is what people said:
Think a minute… What’s your problem? You know that not all problems are bad? In fact, having problems sometimes means you’re making progress. A big hardware business moved into the same building with another, small hardware store.
