A large part of the $10million bill Cyclone Gita has slapped the Electric Power Corporation (E.P.C.) with is really unnecessary. That much is undeniable. It’s money that could have been easily saved had people used their common sense. That said, the responsibility goes both ways.
Dear Editor, I am writing this letter to publicly seek an explanation from the various agencies/organisations that are supposed to assist in times of disasters such as the D.M.O. and Red Cross. My family was one of those badly affected by Cyclone Gita, our houses were inundated with water and mud and up to now we are still cleaning.
Dear Editor, Re: An act of God or nature? Perhaps this Pastor should be thinking about re-educating himself on matters theologically. I think a proper and meaningful question would be, what are we as stewards of creation doing to creation? Are we upholding our responsibilities in caring and managing our planet?
Re: Security Council and Syria Syrian government forces are fighting to reclaim territory from the rebels/terrorists the U.S. sent in there to destabilize the country with a view to regime change and a leadership more amenable to American geopolitical designs on the region.

This piece is in reference to “About those “lazy” Samoan workers” by the Samoa First Union. Laziness is a habit inherent in any human being. And it is a bad habit. Period.
THE BEST A big fa’amalo to the skilled and courageous E.P.C. staff who braved the winds and rain to restore power from broken and dangerous power lines on Cross Island Road on Wednesday night in pitch darkness.
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.
In the wake of Cyclone Gita, one Pastor has claimed that the cyclone was a mild warning from God to the government over their decision to tax pastors. What do you think? Samoa Observer reporter, Nefertiti Matatia, asked members of the public in today’s Street Talk: Do you think Tropical Cyclone Gita was a sign from God? This is what they said:
