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.
Dear Editor, Thank you for your editorial in yesterday’s Samoa Observer. I guarantee you, however, that if this government wins another term they will introduce property tax on customary lands next.
Dear Editor, Re: Govt. should pay pastors instead This is essential Reading for a proper understanding and assessment of the E.F.K.S resolute rejection of the Government Tax Law for Church Ministers.
Dear Editor, Re: Samoa cautioned on critical trade decisions In other words, globalization is another word for legally confiscating of our rights to our land using legal deals orchestrated by the W.T.O. to benefit the stronger nations like N.Z. and Australia in the name of developing Samoa.
Dear Editor, I write today with regard to the upgraded E.P.C. supply of quality and reliable power. Some weeks ago, the Samoa Observer reported a speech by the Prime Minister on how the disbursement of WST10 million to The Tesla Company for back up batteries would ensure an uninterrupted supply of power to the long suffering public consumer.
Re: Plastics ban I support the “Total Ban” on plastics from Styrofoam to single use plastic bags. When we look at what is plastics are and the impact on the ecosystem, we do need to worry.
An innocent and hard working member of the community was brutally beaten in Apia last week. David Main was going about his business, as any ordinary member of the community would do, when two men dragged him out of his vehicle, beat him and left him for dead in front of the old Chan Mow supermarket before they took off in his vehicle.
“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…A young man bought a plane ticket to Auckland, New Zealand. Later when he got home and looked closely at his ticket, he saw the travel agent had sold him a ticket to Oakland, California.
There is a common Samoan saying: “Tau mai na o le pua e ulā; se’i mai le mui’a’a” – “Pick only the most fragrant of frangipani; harvest the royal roots”. It is both a directive and a gentle plea.
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.
