When times are tough, the celebration of victories – whatever the size - is extremely important. It will go a long way to ensure future success. The same must be said for our beloved Manu Samoa today. Their two victories over Germany, starting with the win in Apia two weeks ago, and the one in Germany yesterday morning, are moments to savour.
Dear Editor, Re: Two babies die after vaccination The two toddlers are not the only deaths from the MMR. Some children are genetically susceptible to the vaccine it seems. Therefore compulsory and punitive legislation should be abandoned.
Dear Editor, Re: Taxes, God and meaninglessness I can see the dialectualism of the Church and State in your introduction. Or, the dialectualism of Religious organisations, and the H.R..P.P. Government’s enforced religious taxes.
Dear Editor, I write in reference to your story titled “Luatuanuu want ban lifted” in the Weekend Observer. We continue to see clashes between government and some of the other authorities in the land.

I have been watching with great interest from afar the development of this issue in our beloved country. Interestingly, many, including the highly credentialed Rev Vaiao Eteuati, have been fooled by the apparent simplicity of the issue. But I do not see the issue as simply about the clergies paying taxes.
I found two very interesting stories in the paper recently. One was titled “Govt. considers removing hire and fire powers from P.S.C” and the other was “Board members qualifications in spotlight.”

Talofa Samoa! M.E.T.I. is thankful to N.H.S. for having invited us last year to open our Medical Clinic at Motootua. This has definitely allowed us to reach out to a larger segment of the population compared to the days when our Clinic was located at Tuanaimato.
Of ‘Papa Stui’ and fa’afafines Well it looks like some customers have kicked up a big stink about McDonald’s Unisex toilet.
Nervous times The development in Savai’i last week where two babies died after taking their vaccines will only deepen the public’s mistrust in the health system – when it comes to the issue of vaccines anyway.
Local but no niu Here’s the thing. You go to a some local restaurants and they make a big deal out of them using local ingredients for their food.
The death of two one-year-old babies last Friday following their vaccination at Savai’i has led to independent investigations by authorities and galvanized debate throughout the nation. Health experts have come out defending vaccinations while urging patience until the inquiries are completed. The public was asked if they have confidence in the health system and the health of their children.
