Don’t forget the hardships they’re going through too

The conditions are not ideal. With the scorching heat, the humidity reaching ridiculous levels, you see men and women toiling hard on the streets of Samoa to make money.

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, Amateurs hope. Professionals work. -Garson Kanin Tourism is definitely an industry that can thrive here in Samoa but it’s going to take some work for it to thrive.

Dear Editor Re: Think About This For A Minute As a proud Samoan, it is very sad to see and read about the people you interview daily on how they live and support their families especially the ones in the back villages.

Dear Editor, Re: Church members call for reimbursement The main issue which puzzles me about this whole saga is why Reverend Uili has not been reinstated to roles similar to those he held prior to him being asked to step down.

Eyes closed Head on my pillow Mind racing

On the road to euthanasia

When thunder rumbles over his bed he doesn’t move. Does he hear it?

Do not trust these People:

Men who have buried four or more wives. Shoplifters who compare prices before deciding.

Between the Lines

The righteous thing The Ministry of Revenue is not the most popular of government Ministries right now. That’s for sure.

Make it relevant, P.M. Once again, the P.M. managed to deflect from his Government’s shortcomings and deliver a ridiculously rant.

New Ministry mooted Do we need yet another Ministry? One wit has suggested the new ministry should be called M.O.F. - for Ministry of Fa’afetai!

Think a Minute

Think a minute…How’s your eyesight and vision? A famous blind woman once said: “It’s better to be blind and see with your heart, than to have two good eyes and not see yourself as you truly are.”

Street Talk

What changes in the police ministry are needed?

The Police Commissioner, Fuiavailili Egon Keil has finally returned to work following a long suspension and an appearance in court. Now that he’s resumed his position, Sina Filifilia Sevaaetasi hit the streets of Apia asking the question “Is there a need to have changes in the police force?”
