ALL PUBLICITY IS GOOD PUBLICITY It was wonderful to see instant and very positive feedback to the ‘Clash of the Colours’ promotion of the Blues-Reds rugby game on the evening of June 2 at Apia Park.
WHAT A TEASER! If the Samoa Rugby Union needed some publicity for the upcoming game to be held at Apia Park later in the year, the Auckland Blues rugby side gave it to them by defeating the Melbourne Rebels 56-18 on Thursday night.
We really need another airline that is not affiliated to an existing one which is also flying in and out of Samoa. In other words, competition please, not a cosy relationship where you both maintain the status quo at the expense of the trapped customers
Let’s hope Samoa is not judged on first impressions because if it is, we are in deep trouble. The tail end of the hundreds of passengers arriving at the weekend on a full flight from N.Z. were subjected to close to a two hour wait to be processed.
Many people, especially women, would have had a chuckle at an opinion piece in the Sunday Samoan commenting on our P.M.’s exhortation that we need more babies. As well as Bronnie suggesting he have them himself, she spoke for over half the population when she said,

Re: Church keeps E.F.K.S TV It’s a Christian propaganda tool. They play the stupidest Christian themed movies and programmes. It may look like they are losing money but they are actually recruiting future donors to their church coffers with this ridiculous station and their ridiculous programs.
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…Did you know that you’re not one person, but three? The person you think you are, the person other people think you are, and the person you really are. One day a man was looking in a second-hand art shop.
If only Apia Harbour can tell her story of the last 150 years. We would be mesmerised with the drama and the dramatics of Samoan history played out in her waters. No one would move until she has finished telling her story.
“Higher Daddy!Higher!” the little boy squealed, his face bright with excitement. Sigurd laughed and caught his son before tossing him up even higher than before.
